Pastor John Bendixen: 

Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. Praise Jesus. Praise Jesus. Come on give Him your best. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Glory, glory, glory, glory. Praise You, Jesus. Hallelujah. Wooh.


Well, I was watching what you all did after I left last night with Brother Jerry. You know, once this thing gets cranked up, I don’t think we can stop it. So for the moment, I think you should be seated. Hallelujah. Glory to God. We’re going to have some more sound and song at the end. Brother Jerry is going to take the lead in the service and he’s going to do whatever the Lord has been telling him to do, and commanded him to do for this for this evening. And so we are just going to flow right along with that, so would you all just welcome Brother Jerry to his second home. Hallelujah. I need the pulpit up, guys. 


Brother Jerry Savelle:



Pastor John Bendixen: 

Thank you, sir. 


Brother Jerry Savelle:

Thank you, Garth, you are amazing. All these songs that God’s giving you. Hallelujah. I feel like I’m 17 again, man. This church is rockin’. Hallelujah. Let’s pray before we get in the Word tonight. Father, thank You for another opportunity to gather together with those of like precious faith. We thank You for Your anointing on this service tonight. Thank You for Your presence, where Your presence is, there is fullness of joy. Where your presence is, the enemy is stopped and stilled. Where the anointing is, burdens are removed, yokes are destroyed. We believe for that tonight in Jesus’ Name. We give You praise in advance for all that shall be accomplished. Amen and amen. Let’s praise Him in advance for it. Glory to God. Hallelujah. Thank You, Lord. Thank You, Lord. Thank You, Lord. 


I have been living this life of faith for 54 years now. I learned a long, long time ago that one of the greatest expressions of faith is to be able to thank God in advance before you see anything happen. Amen. You know, I’ve used this example before, if Pastor John said, “Brother Jerry before you leave South Africa, I’d like to take you to Sandton shopping centre and buy you a new suit.” Well, the first thing I would do is reach out, shake hands with him, and say, “Thank you, John. It’s very kind of you.” I haven’t even seen the suit yet. I’m already thanking him. Well, what would you think of me if I said to him, “Well, John, if you don’t mind, I’ll wait until I see the suit before I thank you.” That’s rude, it’s ill mannered. But we deal with God that way all the time. “Well Lord, as soon as it happens, I’m going to praise You.” No, that’s backwards. Praise Him now and watch it happen. So let’s do it, let’s praise Him now and watch it happen. Hallelujah. Thank you, Lord. Thank You, Lord. Amen. Amen.


I don’t know what Tony put in this, but it’s good. [Brother Jerry drinks some juice] Hallelujah. And it’s legal too. Amen. Let’s open our Bibles once again tonight to Genesis chapter one and go back and review just a little bit of what we talked about this morning. Genesis chapter one, verse 27. I mentioned to you that when God created man, He immediately gave him three gifts that would enable him to live a victorious, glorious, wonderful, good life and to reach maximum and the highest level attainable. Let’s read once again, or let me just say it for the sake of time, but you can find it right here in Genesis chapter one, beginning in verse 26, down to verse 29. 


The three gifts that God gave him after creating him; number one was dominion and authority. The second gift was the blessing. And the third gift was seed. And with those three gifts, He enabled man to live a very, very successful and glorious life. Sin didn’t come until they committed high treason against God and disobedience. Sin caused them to miss the mark, where they were no longer able to enjoy the life that they had originally enjoyed because sin prevented it. Satan entered, the earth became cursed. Yet God had a plan. As I said this morning, God will never ever allow Satan to get the upper hand. Satan thinks he has the upper hand from time to time. You just wait and see; God will bring on something that will counter Satan’s attack. And you and I will be blessed as a result of it. Amen. So don’t ever give up when Satan’s got you in a bind, so to speak. It’s just a matter of time, if you’ll stay in faith, God will turn it around. Hallelujah. He’s still the God of the turnaround. Can you say amen? 


We talked about this morning, the blessing, somewhat, we talked about dominion and authority, somewhat. And then I began to introduce to you the concept of seed. Now I do want you to read this with me in verse 29, verse 29, ²⁹ And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat (Genesis 1:29 KJ21). Now there are other translations that say, for you it shall be for provision. In other words, God is saying to Adam, to man, that this is the way you will have your life sustained. 


Sowing seed is for provision. That’s the way God began and that’s the way it still is today. Even though Adam blew it, and God started all over with Noah and his sons, you’ll find in Genesis chapter 8, shortly after God began introducing Himself to Noah, Genesis chapter 8 verse 22, it says, ²² And as long as the earth remains, seedtime and harvest shall not cease (Genesis 8:22 NIV). Last I checked, the earth is still here. So, if the earth is still here, then that principle of seedtime and harvest is still in effect. And it’s still the way that God intends for you to have your life sustained. 


Now, the Lord taught me many years ago, in fact, Brother Copeland said often, “Jerry, the strongest anointing I see on you, is when you’re teaching on the laws of seedtime and harvest.” Because I learned this, actually, I learned some things about it as a young boy, born on a farm in Mississippi. My grandfather had about 70 acres that he produced the majority of those acreage in produce. My grandfather bought that farm in 1927. It’s where my dad was raised. It’s where I was born. Eventually, they accumulated about 70 acres. When I was a little boy, I’d go to the field with my grandfather. Back when I was a young boy, I don’t know, four or five years old. My grandfather tilled the ground with a mule. He didn’t have a tractor. He had an old mule called Betsy. He’d hook up Betsy to the plough, and we take off to the woods. And then, there was an area in Mississippi, it’s all rolling hills. And there was a back part of our property that was flat, and that’s what grandpa called it. “Son, we’re going to the flat.” And that was where all the produce was, where we sowed the seed for produce. 


We would take old Betsy down to the flat. He’d hook her up to the plough, and I’d stand behind him as a little boy and, he’s going with that, you know, till the ground, getting it ready to sow the seed. And then when that ground was prepared, he would sow the seed, and then cover it all up and water it. And then we’d go to the house when that was accomplished. He would say, every year he would say, “Son, we’re going to have good crops this year.” I said, “Grandpa, how do you know that? Not all of our neighbours always have good crops. Why do you say we have good crops?” And he’d always say this, “Son, this is good old Mississippi Delta soil.” If you know anything about the Mississippi river, it starts all the way up north of Minnesota, and it trickles all the way down to the Gulf Coast. And down in Vicksburg, Mississippi, where I was born, that’s called the Delta. And that’s where some of the greatest crops were produced. It’s because that river winding all the way from the north brought all the minerals and all the stuff from the north down here and dumped it in the Delta country, and that’s where our farm was. So, my grandfather said, “Son, we always have good crops, this is good old Mississippi Delta soil.” He would tell me as a little boy, he said, “Son, you can break a stick off and throw it in the ground, cover it up and it’ll be a tree next year.” I believed it, you know, I mean, we always had good crops. 


But my grandfather taught me and I didn’t realise it until after I came to the Lord, the lessons that my grandfather taught me, that we’re in the Bible. You know, Jesus related many of His sermons to things that were ordinary to people, common to people. He taught on soil. He taught on seed. He taught on fishing. You know, things that people could relate to. I didn’t realise it until after I came to the Lord, that my grandfather taught me all this, and I didn’t know it was in the Bible. And then God began to bring it to my remembrance and then give me deeper insight into it. And I remember growing up that we always had good crops. And there were some people that didn’t even have enough land to plant and so my grandfather saw to it that nobody on our road went hungry. Now on the part of Vicksburg, Mississippi, where we lived, we were on a dirt road. Now, I am talking about rural Mississippi – we lived on a dirt road, and there were only about three or four white families and all the other families on that road were black. Okay? I grew up playing with black boys and girls. I didn’t know any difference – I just thought they’d been out in the sun longer than I have, they’ve got a better tan and I was not. Mississippi in those days was one of the most racist states in America but my family were not racists. I was not taught racism. I certainly didn’t call a black person by the “N” word. That is the quickest way to get a… We didn’t get whippings in the south, we got whoopins, that is worse than a whipping. But if we said that word and my parents heard it or my grandparents heard it, it’s a whoopin. So, I didn’t grow up racist and I played with those kids and one of them – these two brothers, their mother lived just up the road from us, and her name was Daisy-May. Miss Daisy-May was like another mother to me. She treated me like one of her kids. I played with them all the time and then we were growing up together till I moved to Louisiana, and I didn’t know any difference. Miss Daisy-May’s family, a lot of times didn’t have enough food to eat and some of the other people on the road didn’t have enough food to eat. So, my grandfather saw to it that in our barn, when we brought in the crops, he had one bin where he put the best crops and that was for sowing for next year. Grandpa never let us eat the best crops. I’d ask, “Grandpa, why don’t we never get to eat the best?” He said, “That’s for sowing for next year,” because if you keep eating the best, eventually you’re going to get poor crops. It degenerates. And so, we’d kept the best crops like the corn and that was always for what the Bible calls seeding seed. In Genesis 1 where it says; I have given you every herb bearing seed, in the literal Hebrew that is seeding seed. That’s seed for planting. Charles Capps used to say if you’re down to your last dollar, don’t eat your seed, sow it and Charles was a farmer – a big time farmer. He learned that you sow your best seed.


Then, the second bin of our crops was what we ate and what the cattle ate. We had the second best. Then the third bin was what he took to the market in town and sold. Then there was a fourth bin and I’d forgotten about that fourth bin until after I came to the Lord. He said, “Son, when you tell the story, you only speak about the three bins.” He said, “Did you forget there was a fourth bin?” And then I remembered. That fourth bin held crops that my grandfather gave to the neighbours. He invited them to come to the property, go into the barn and get whatever they needed from that fourth bin. So, one of the reasons my grandfather knew that we’d always have good crops; number one, he believed in the soil – good old Mississippi Delta soil. Number two, he believed in the seed. Number three, he was a sower, blessing other people. Number four, he was a tither. He had it all working for him. Hallelujah. Amen. He understood how the ground works, he understood the potential of a seed, he understood the rewards of tithing, and he understood blessed to be a blessing. And so that’s the reason why we always had good crops. Hallelujah. God never let us down.


So, I have learned some of those things as a kid, and once again, I didn’t know that they were taught in the Bible, I just thought that’s something you know that farmers, grandfathers teach their grandchildren. Then when I got into the Word of God, I found these words from Jesus, “The Kingdom of God is like unto a man sowing seed.” I said, “Hey, I can relate to that. I understand that.” The Kingdom of God is likened to a man who sows seed. That’s Mark chapter four. Now if you keep reading Mark chapter four, He will say that once a seed is sown, it groweth up. That is what seeds are designed to do. How many of you know God created seed? God made seed. The last thing a seed heard after God created it was; grow. That’s all a seed knows to do. That’s all a seed knows to do. I don’t care where you plant a seed, it will do its best to grow. Do its best to grow. 


Now, I have ridden motorcycles all my life. As most of you know, we began Chariots of Light, Christian Bikers. We do tours all over America, every year. One of our favourite places is the state of Colorado. It’s a beautiful state, the mountains, the rivers and streams. It’s just gorgeous. And that’s the way to see Colorado, is on a motorcycle. There’s a sign in one area, that when you come around this curve, you see this sign, and there’s streams down below and mountains up above. And when you come around this curve, there’s a big sign that says; If God doesn’t live in Colorado, He sure spends a lot of time here. And so, they’re attributing that beauty to God being the Creator, okay. 


Now, many times on those motorcycle trips, we’ll come around a curve. It’s not uncommon to see a tree growing out of a mountain. I took some pictures of it. As I’m looking at it I think, how in the world did that tree grow out of that mountain? There’s no soil out there. In fact, I got a couple of pictures I want to show you real quick. Can you go to those trees growing in the mountains? 

Look at that. How does a tree grow in a rock? Go to the next one. Pastor John Bendixen.

Look at that, that’s a tree growing in a rock. Now I want you to see the third one. Just before you show it, let me say this. All the seed knows to do is grow. That’s the last thing it had heard from God. “I created you, now here’s your purpose; grow. Grow, grow. And when man plants you, you will eventually become provision for him.” Okay, so a seed when it is sown, it will do its utmost to grow, even in a rock. 

Now. Look at this next picture. 

Look how powerful that seed is. It split the rock. How does a tree grow in a rock and become so powerful that it splits the rock? That’s the potential of a seed. That’s the potential of a seed. I said, that’s the potential of a seed. Amen. Mark 4 says, not only is the Kingdom of God likened to a man which soweth seed in the earth and it springs and grows up, he knows not how. He can’t see under the earth what’s taking place under there. All he knows is, you plant a seed, the seed knows what to do. The earth knows what to do. God knows what to do. I’m going to bed. Amen. It says, he rises night and day and he knows not how this seed does what it does. But he didn’t question it. He didn’t go out there the next day and say, “Well, I sowed that seed and I don’t see any results. This stuff doesn’t work.” No, he rises night and day, having confidence in the seed, having confidence in the earth, having confidence in God causing it to produce a harvest. So, he just relaxes and goes to bed. 


There’s a good lesson in that. When you sow your financial seeds, don’t stay up worrying all night, “Dear God, what am I going to do?” Go to bed. You say, “Lord, I’m going to sleep. I have confidence in the seed. It knows what to do. I have confidence in the soil You told me to plant it in. It knows what to do. You’re the one who created seed, You know what to do. Good night.” Hallelujah. Sleep with a smile on your face and wake up doing a dance before the Lord, knowing you’re one day closer to your harvest. Hallelujah. Come on, give the Lord a shout of praise. Amen. Amen. 


Now, every seed sown, has an assignment on it. And that assignment is; grow. Grow and become. I learned this, particularly working with Brother Copeland back in the early days. Oral Roberts really had a great impact on my life in a little book that he wrote, the year that I got saved and surrendered my life to the Lord. Brother Roberts back then had a television programme, weekly television programme, primetime. I would watch it every night when it came on. Brother Roberts introduced one night, a new book that he had just written, and it was called The Miracle of Seed Faith. He said, “If you will order this book, write to me, order this book, I’ll send it to you absolutely free.” I turned to Carolyn, I said, “Carolyn, here’s one we can afford; order it.” So we ordered that little book, The Miracle of Seed Faith. I consumed it when I got hold of it. I still have it in my library today. I’ve bought tons of them and given them away all over the world. It’s one of the greatest little books I’ve ever read in my life. It talked about the potential of a seed and how to make God your source by sowing seed. If you’ve never ever read it, it’s still available on Amazon or YouTube or something like that, you know. It absolutely changed my life. 


Brother Robert said, “Everything God’s ever told me to do, I sowed a seed before I attempted to do it as an act of my trust in God to bring in the finances to make it happen.” See, we were raised backwards. “I’ll believe it when I see it.” No, the Bible way of living is, “I’ll believe it and then I’ll see it.” Amen. I believe it and then I’ll see it. If you believe it, then your believing demands corresponding actions. And then that’s what James said, faith without works, the King James says, but in other translations, a better rendering is, faith without corresponding action is void and destitute of power. So it’s not enough to just say, “Well, I believe God is going to do this.” Well, put some action to it. Okay, because faith without corresponding actions is void of power. “Well, I believe God’s going to meet my financial needs.” Well, put some action to it. Sow a seed. Now I’m going to try on this side of the auditorium. Amen. 


God taught me years ago. He said, “Son, don’t ever become need-minded, become seed-minded.” Amen. That’s a powerful revelation. Don’t become need-minded, become seed-minded. The way I learned this, I was flying up to Tulsa to do a meeting with Brother Roberts on the ORU campus in the Mabee Center. We’re going to have, I don’t know, eight or 10,000 people in that meeting that night. I’m flying up there and I’m sitting in the back of my aeroplane and I had a tremendous need. I mean, it was a great sum of money to get this project done. As I’m flying up there, I said, “Lord, I need X amount of dollars for this project.” He said, “When you get to Tulsa, there’ll be five ministers that are on the verge of leaving the ministry because they’re discouraged.” He said, “When you get there and the service is turned over to you, call on those five ministers and tell them to come up and you give each one of them one of your suits.” I said, “Okay.” So we flew a little further. I said, “Lord, I want to talk to you about this need I have.” He said, “When you get to Tulsa, there’ll be an elderly couple who have a ministry of distributing food to the poor in their community and they need a new vehicle to transport this food.” He said, “Your ministry just bought two vans,” large vans. And He said, “Give them one of your vans.” I said, “Okay.” So we flew a little further. I said, “Lord, I’d like to talk to you about this need.” He said, “When you get to Tulsa …” He said, “There’s a particular minister that said to Me, going to the meeting, ‘God, if you don’t speak to me in this meeting, I am done. I’m through.’” He said, “Give him your briefcase with $500 in it, cash.” I said, “Okay. Lord, so far, all we’ve talked about is me sowing. You haven’t talked to me about my need.” He said, “When you get to …” I said, “I don’t want talk to You no more.” 


What was God doing? He was not trying to take something from me. He’s trying to get something to me. See, that’s becoming seed-minded instead of need-minded. Every time you talk to God about a need, if you’ll just shut up and listen, give Him a moment, He’ll talk to you about a seed. You should’ve written that down. Every time you talk to God about a need, He’ll talk to you about a seed because that’s the way He set it up in the beginning. That’s how He intended for man to have his life sustained, is by the sowing of seed. Can you say, Amen? Hallelujah. Are you still with me? 


Now, once again, Mark chapter four. Once a seed 32 is sown, it groweth up and becometh… (Mark 4:32 KJV). Okay. Back in 2020, actually 2019, Brother Copeland was launching his new Victory television channel. Okay. He announced this at our Board of Director meetings, and told us to be believing in God with him. He said, “Every minister that has a television program that is of like precious faith, we’re going to put them on that channel, not charge them a dime for it.” Wow, that’s, I mean, that’s quite a seed. It takes millions of dollars to do television every year, you know? He said, “I’m not going to charge anybody that’s on my channel a dime. I’m going to sow it into their ministries.” Okay. Well, that’s typical Kenneth Copeland. That’s just the way he lives. And so he began to launch into that network. When he announced he was going to launch it, well, I immediately sowed from my television ministry $100,000 to go toward the development of that. I sowed $100,000. Okay. Now, once he launched it, I was there for the launching but then I had to leave and go to another meeting. I wasn’t there for the rest of the meetings that week.


I got home the last night of the meeting, and it was still on the air. I went into the bedroom, Carolyn was laying in the bed watching it. I went and got my clothes, you know, changed my clothes into my robe and so forth. I just laid on the bed beside her and I’m watching this and I’ve already sowed $100,000 into it. The Lord said, “What’s more important to you, owning that Falcon 50 aircraft or helping Brother Copeland launch this television network?” I said, “Lord, you know, anything Kenneth Copeland is doing is more important to anything I’m doing.” He said, “Then show Me.” I said, “How?” He said, “Take the money you put aside for that Falcon 50 to pay cash for it, and sow it into this.” Well, I’ve already sowed $100,000 and at that time I only had $200,000 set aside to pay, you know, to go toward the Falcon 50 and our ministry, we don’t borrow money. Okay, so we believe pay in cash. So He said, “Sow the rest of it.” Well, there was $200,000 left in that account. I leaned over to Carolyn said, told her what the Lord said. She said, “Well, I know you, you’ll do it.”


I got on the phone and called KCM and talked to one of the operators there. I said, “Tell Brother Copeland, that I’m sitting here watching him and I heard the Lord say, ‘Sow what you’ve got out of your aviation department and show him that what he’s doing is more important to you than owning a Falcon 50.’” So I just called and told them that. My daughter, Jerriann, was on the broadcast with them and they told her what I said. She reached out, she touched Pastor George Pearsons, and told him. Now I didn’t think that’s going to be broadcast. I just thought they’d tell Brother Copeland after it was over with. So I saw Jerriann walk over to George, and I saw George walk over to Brother Copeland. Brother Copeland got up immediately and he said, “Jerry Savelle, just called in.” He said, “Jerry has been believing for a Falcon 50 for 20 years. He’s owned a lot of different aeroplanes over the years, but he’s never owned one that would take him international. He’d been believing God for it because he has an international ministry.” He said, “He just sowed the rest of the money in his aviation account into this. So let’s agree with him that God is going to bring that Falcon 50 into his life, ministry.” Okay. And so we did that. That was the first week of September of the first part of September 2020. I sowed that significant seed. Significant means it has value to you. If it doesn’t have value to you, it’s not significant. It’s like a guy told me one time, said, “Brother Jerry, I’ve got an old suit, I’ve never liked it, I want to give it to you.” “Thank you very much.” You know what you’ll get in return? A 100 old suits that you don’t like. It wasn’t significant. I sowed that significant seed. Now that was the first, not the second week of September. Before the end of September, my seed grew up and became. And look what it became.

Hallelujah. I rest my case. I could have been an attorney. Look at this. That’s what that seed grew up and became. Why? Because that’s all a seed knows to do. Once you plant it, all it knows to do is to grow and become. To grow up and become. Say that with me, “To grow up and become.” What will it become? It becomes what you need it to become. Amen. 


When a farmer sows seeds of a particular vegetable or fruit that he wants, that’s what he expects to come from it. He doesn’t sow an apple seed and goes out looking for bananas. “Ah, this stuff doesn’t work, I got bananas.” No, if you sow apple seeds, you’re going to get apples. The seed will grow up and become apples. The seed will grow up and become bananas. The seed will grow up and become tomatoes, the seed… tomatoes [Brother Jerry pronounces ‘tomatoes’ with a British accent]. The seed will grow and become whatever you sowed it for. 


Now, the beautiful thing is, the Bible reveals to us that God even considers our finances as seed. Now follow the pattern here. If a tomato seed will produce tomatoes, and an apple seed will produce apples, and cottonseed produces cotton, when you sow money, what should you expect to receive? [Congregation answers; Money] Money. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Amen. The Bible says, a man that sows sparingly, he can only expect to reap sparingly. If he sows generously, then he can expect to reap a generous harvest. See, you really are in charge of your own harvest. I don’t have to ask God, when I was younger I did because I was learning. I’d say, “Lord, what do you want me to give?” He trusts me because I have proven to Him that I live to give. I’m a sower. I said; I’m a sower. When the Bible talks about a sower, it’s not talking about somebody doing this part-time or occasionally. A sower went out to sow, that’s the description of a sower – a sower went out to sow. That’s what sowers do. It’s what we do, man, it’s what we do. [Brother Jerry acts out the ‘it’s what we do, man’ gestures


Sowers, the most natural thing for a sower is to sow. Now my wife loves, because we were both raised this way, we love fresh vegetables. You know, homegrown. The time you get them in the store, you don’t know what kind of chemicals they got on them and all this stuff, you know. And so, we love homegrown. My wife, she decided, since we don’t have a big garden, you know, or anything like that, she decided that she just wanted some fresh tomatoes. So she went out in the back of the house, in a spot that she used to have flowers in, she dug all that up and planted tomato plants. Then they grew and became. I mean, luscious tomatoes and boy are they good on a sandwich, you know. But when neighbours came over and saw those few little tomatoes growing in the backyard, nobody said, “Carolyn, we didn’t know you were a farmer.” Growing tomatoes occasionally does not make you a farmer. Having some law books in your library does not make you a lawyer. Having an accounting machine in your office does not make you an accountant. Sitting in an aeroplane doesn’t make you a pilot and sowing every once in a while in church doesn’t make you a sower. 


A sower goes out to sow, that’s what they do. They look for opportunities every day to sow because that’s what sowers do. Are there any sowers in the house today? [Congregation says; Yes] Hallelujah. Amen. Now, if you’re a sower, and you sow because that’s what sowers do, why wouldn’t you expect to harvest? Anybody expect a harvest when you sow? [Congregation says; Yes] Well, if you expect a harvest, why would you ever give up on it? 


Remember what Galatians says? Galatians says, do not 9 be weary in well doing: for in due season you shall reap, if you faint not (Galatians 6:9 KJV). So why would you ever give up on that seed? If you truly believe that the seed knows what to do, God knows what to do and it’s just a matter of time; it’s going to grow up and become. Hallelujah. Can you say, Amen, to that? 


Alright, now, let me say this to you, that was my introduction, about to get into my sermon now. Okay. This is stuff… I don’t rely on what I preach somewhere else. I pray and ask the Lord to give me the words that are specific for that group of people. This is specific for you. Even though it’s very similar to what I’ve taught in other places. But I don’t come to meetings and even though I keep a notebook, and all of my notes are handwritten, and then I take them home, my secretary types them up. And every year I fill up all these notebooks and then I put them in my archive, and I start a whole new notebook with my sermons in it. But I don’t say, “Well, I’m really…” Just like coming in Friday night, I was tired, okay. I didn’t have enough time to really prepare like I would have liked to have prepared. I had to do it on the aeroplane flying over here. Okay, when I got to where we’re staying, I had just enough time, I couldn’t even shower. You know, I had just enough time to take off my jogging suit, sport suit, or whatever you call them. Tracksuit, okay, and put on a suit, and come in here. I don’t really like doing that because I don’t feel like I’ve had enough time with the Lord and had enough time in His Word, so I knew that was probably going to be the case. So I did all my praying and my studying on the flight over here, so that I could walk out of that house, walk right in here and know the anointing would be here. Okay. I wrote notes for that specific service the other night. Now, today, I wrote these notes. They haven’t even been typed yet because they haven’t been back to Texas yet, even though my secretary will see a lot of similar stuff from previous notes. Okay, but this is specifically for you. Hallelujah. 


Now, listen to this; every major breakthrough recorded in the Bible has the principle of sowing a significant seed. Every major breakthrough recorded in the Bible has with it the principle of the sowing of a significant seed. Now, a lot of times you have to look for that seed in the story. The Lord led me on a journey one time all the way through the Gospels, and showed me in every major breakthrough, there was a seed sown before the breakthrough came. 


For instance, I’m reading Mark chapter four, or Mark chapter five, and it’s the story of the little woman with the issue of blood and Jairus, whose daughter was dying. Jesus had entered their village and Jairus came to Him and said, “My little daughter lies at the point of death, come and lay Your hands on her so that she might live.” And Jesus started to follow him. The Bible says there was such a large crowd around Him, they were thronging him. Okay, so there’s a lot of people around Him. Before He could get to Jairus’ house, this little woman with the issue of blood, she came through the crowd and touched His garment, and it stopped Him in His tracks, and it wasn’t because she had such a grip pulling on Him. No, in one translation, in the King James it says, “Who touched Me?” He stopped immediately, and said, “Who touched Me?” In another translation the disciples said, “Master, everybody’s touching You.” In another translation it says, “No, this is not just a natural touch. It’s the touch of faith. Somebody has made a demand on My ability, who was it?” The little woman fearing and trembling. Why was she fearing and trembling? Why was she fearing and trembling? Because she had an issue of blood and under Levitical law, she was not allowed to be in that crowd. They could have stoned her. So where was the seed in this, brother? Her very life. She put her life on the altar, so to speak, she put her life on the line to have the miracle performed by Jesus. She knew that if she went into that crowd, she could be looking at death. And guess who had the authority to give the order to stone her? Jairus, the man in whom she interrupted his miracle. So what was her seed? Her very life. There’s always a seed in a major breakthrough that’s recorded in the Bible. He ministered to her and said, 48 Daughter … your faith hath made you whole (Luke 8:48 KJV).


In the meantime, a messenger came to Jairus and said, “Don’t trouble the Master any longer, your daughter’s dead.” Jesus turned to Jairus and said, “Only believe.” Another translation says it this way, that’s more a modern vernacular; Jesus turned to him and said, “Jairus, don’t be moved by that. Keep believing. I’ll be with you in just a moment.” “Daughter, your faith has made you whole.” “Let’s go, Jairus.” I love that. Praise God. They went to Jairus’ house and found his little daughter dead. But Jesus raised her from the dead. “Well, Brother Jerry, where do you see a seed in that?” Oh, you don’t see the seed? You have to remember the religious sector was not favourable towards the ministry of Jesus. Jairus was the ruler of the synagogue. What seed did he sow? His reputation, his job, his elite status in the community; he was willing to lay it on the line, sow it as a seed in order for him to have a miracle with his little daughter. There’s always a significant seat involved. Thank you for your enthusiasm. There is always a significant seed involved.


Another example, in the book of Luke it says Jesus entered a place and there were 10 lepers standing afar off. When they saw Jesus, they said, “Master, have mercy on us.” Jesus turned to them and said, now let me backup a bit. Now, why were they standing afar off? They had leprosy. They’re not allowed in the village. They said, “Master, have mercy on us.” Jesus said, “Go show yourself to the priest.” They can’t do that. They can be stoned before they get to the priest. They’re not allowed in that village. See, Jesus calls things that be not as though they were. He was seeing the end result. Amen. He said, “Go show yourself to the priest.” And the next verse, the first few words, 14 … as they went … (Luke 17:14 KJV). As they went, they were cleansed of the leprosy. All 10 of them, cleansed of the leprosy. What was their seed? Their life. They laid their life on the line as a seed for their breakthrough. All 10 of them got cleansed, but one of them when he saw that he was cleansed, he came back, fell at Jesus’ feet and worshipped Him. Jesus said to that man, in fact, he asked the disciples, “Weren’t they all 10 cleansed?” They said, “Yes, but only this one has come back.” Jesus turned to that man and said, “Now, 19 thy faith hath made thee whole (Luke 17:19 KJV). All the others were cleansed but they still had the evidence that they had once had leprosy; scars, you know. But this man, because he came back, and was thankful and worshipped Jesus for His miracle, he was made whole. There was no evidence that man had ever had leprosy. And a seed produced it. Can you see that? 


What about blind Bartimaeus? “Brother Jerry, I never saw a seed in all these stories.” There’s seed involved in every story. Blind Bartimaeus – when he heard Jesus was nearby, he began to cry out, “Son of David, Son of David, have mercy on me.” The people around him said, “Shut up, be quiet.” The Bible says he shouted louder, “Son of David, Son of David, have mercy on me.” They said, “Be quiet. Don’t trouble the Master.” “Son of David,” he shouted louder, “Have mercy on me.” Jesus said, “Bring him to me.” You got to read the story again to see the seed. “Bring him to me.” The Bible says before Bartimaeus went to Jesus, the first thing he did was take off his beggar’s robe and lay it at his feet. See, in those days, you had to have a beggar’s robe that qualified you to be a beggar in the streets. They wore a robe for identification. This man believed that he was about to receive his breakthrough. In his mind, he’s thinking, “When I get my breakthrough, I won’t be blind anymore and I won’t be a beggar anymore. So I don’t need this robe anymore. So I’m just going to sow it.” He sowed that old beggar’s robe, that beggar’s robe represented his livelihood. He just sowed his livelihood and he went to Jesus and you know the end of the story; he received his sight and was made whole. 


There’s always a seed in every story in the Bible where there’s a major breakthrough. You just have to find it. You just have to find it. Why is there always a seed? Because that’s the way God created things in the beginning. I give you dominion and authority, I give you the blessing, and I give you seed and seed will be for sustaining your life. You take those three principles and live by them, and you’re going to go to the ultimate, the maximum. You’re going to enter into this realm of the highest level attainable because that’s the way God set it up in the beginning. Jesus restored it and now we can live by it. Hallelujah. Now listen folks; if it didn’t work, don’t you think after 54 years I would have figured it out? I’m not about to change the message because it’s still working today. Hallelujah. It’ll work as long as the earth remains. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Give the Lord another good shout. 


Let me say this to you; when God asks you to give something, He’s not trying to take something from you. He’s trying to get something to you. I’ll say it again; when God asks you to give something, He’s not asking you to give it so He can take something from you. When He asks you to give something, He’s endeavouring to get something to you. Amen. See, I think one of the things a lot of Christians miss out on is when they sow, they sow in tears, like a loss. “It was nice to have seen you, that 1000 rand. Bye-bye” They consider it lost. No, that’s not the way the Bible says. God loves a cheerful giver. He says in the Amplified, a giver who is prompt to do it and cheerful in his giving. How can you be cheerful when you’re about to give away something? Because you know it’s not God trying to take something from you. God is setting you up for something better. Hallelujah. Are you still here? 


Now listen to this. You might want to write this down, it’s important. The measure of your trust in God will determine how tightly you hold on to what He asks you to give away. I’ll say it again. The measure of your trust in God will determine how tightly you hold on to what he asks you to give. Now, let’s say this. If you can’t give something away that God gave you, then you don’t have that something, it has you. Amen. Just like the very first aeroplane God put in our ministry, 1975. I mean, God told me never ever borrow money for an aeroplane. Believe for it debt free. He said, “I don’t want you ever to fly an aeroplane with debt?” Well, in those days, I was still trying to pay off my debts from my business. I mean, we didn’t have a lot. We just started out and I’m a man of my word, and I went to all the people that I owed, when I shut my business down. I said, “I don’t know how I’m going to do this but I know that I will get it done. Trust me, I’ll pay you back everything I owe you and if you want to charge me interest on the time it takes me to pay you back, I understand. Charge me the interest but I give you my word. I’ll pay you every dime I owe, just give me some time.” I didn’t have a clue how I was going to do that. I began sowing to get out of debt. “You mean you gave to get out of debt?” Yes. “I don’t understand that.” It’s the most natural thing to do. Okay, I lost some of my people. “Well, you don’t have much to start with, why would you give?” So I can have much later. Duh? 


That’s like the first time I set foot on African soil in Kenya in 1978. The Lord said, “I want you to teach on Covenant the entire time you’re here.” I said, “Why Lord?” He said, “These people understand Covenant, they just have a perverted view of it. Teach on Covenant, the Abrahamic Covenant, the blessings of Abraham; redeemed from the curse.” Just basic faith 101, okay. So, I started teaching. You can’t teach on the Covenant without teaching prosperity because it involves, includes prosperity. Blessed coming in, blessed going out, in the city, in the field. Everything you set your hand to do will be blessed. So how can you teach Covenant and not teach prosperity? So, when I got into the prosperity part … Well, how can you teach prosperity without the principle of sowing and reaping? Okay, so I began teaching on sowing and reaping. There’s a group of people that got extremely upset with me. You know who they were? They were not the Kenyans. They were the American missionaries. One of them said to me, “Mister Savelle,” wouldn’t even have the courtesy to call me Brother Savelle. “Mister Savelle, these people are poor. You can’t come over here preaching prosperity.” I said, “Sir, what you just told me was this; be the same thing, Brother Savelle or Mister Savelle, you can’t preach on salvation in Kenya, these people are lost.” How dumb is that? That’s the reason I’m preaching on prosperity, that’s the reason I’m preaching on sowing and reaping. I know they’re living in poverty and this will get them out. Hallelujah. Amen. 


First time I started preaching to the Native Americans, 1972, in Shonto, Arizona, on the Navajo Reservation, we taught Covenant. Those people understand Covenant. It is a perverted side of it. So, we taught them Covenant and in Covenant you got to teach prosperity. If you teach prosperity, you have to teach on the laws of seedtime and harvest. So that’s what we taught them. Most of these people, and they live in what looked like a godforsaken place on this planet. Shonto, Arizona, is nothing but sand and it’s a Navajo Reservation. It’s one of the largest Native American reservations in North America. These people would walk to the meetings, they didn’t have vehicles. They didn’t have money but we taught them on sowing and reaping anyway. They would stop by a river, a creek and pick up rocks in that creek where the water had washed over it and shine them and made them pretty. And they bring them to the meeting. And that was their offer, that was their seed; little shiny rocks. I still have those rocks. I wouldn’t take a million dollars for them because it represented significant seed. 


One year later, when we went back, I noticed that some of them came driving up there in pickup trucks. Hallelujah. One year later, when we came back, I noticed they got out of these hogans and they’re in houses. Same thing happened in Kenya. Those people made little trinkets, little bowls with colourful designs on them and they brought it to me, that’d be my offering, or they brought me a piece of clothing that they made. A scarf or something and wanted me to give this to my wife. That was the best they had. That was the significant seed. I still have those in my office. There’s an Africa room where I have all of that, okay. I would not take anything for it. A couple of years later, when I went back, Joe’s been there many, many times. He can tell you. These people that were walking to the meetings, are driving vehicles or riding motorcycles, or little motor scooters, you know, building houses. Hallelujah. Some of them eventually got so prosperous, they started their own business and started sending money to America to support my ministry. Amen. Hallelujah.; “Brother Jerry, I can’t believe you received those offerings from those poor people.” You better believe I’m going to receive an offering from a poor person because that’s the way they’re going to get out of their poverty. 


I was in Jackson, Mississippi, in 1975, ‘74 and I’m preaching along these lines. At the end of the service an elderly woman came up to me and she said, “Brother Jerry, my husband worked for the railroad and he died and the railroad gives me,” what she called her a little pension. A retirement that he was entitled to and since he died, she was entitled to it. She said, “That’s what I live on.” She said, “But I want to be a partner with your ministry. All I have to give you is $1 a month.” Well, I felt terrible about taking that dollar. She needs it more than I did. I said, “Ma’am, I really appreciate that. You’re such a sweetheart.” But I said, “I feel bad about taking your dollar, since that’s all you have to live on.” This little short woman, put her hands on her hips, looked me in the eye and said, “You don’t practise what you preach do you, buddy.” I said, “Yes, ma’am. I do.” She said, “After what I heard, I’m on a fixed income. You told me how to get it unfixed. I’m trying to do it. You’re blocking my blessing.” “Give me that dollar, lady.” That lady faithfully supported our ministry for $1 every month till the day she died. I mean, years went by. It got to where, in our accounting department, in our mailroom, the ladies that work in there, wanted to be the first one to get her little envelope with the $1 in it. “Hey, I’m the one that opened her.” Years later, after she’d already passed away, I’m back in Jackson. After the service, this young woman came up to me and said, “Brother Jerry, you don’t know me, but I know you.” I said, “Why would I know you?” She said, “My mother was …” And it was this lady. I said, “Oh yeah, your mother was a sweetheart. She sent me $1 a month, every month, until she went home to be Lord.” She said, “I’m fully aware of that. I remember the first time she sent that $1. I was in that service that night.” She said, “I just want you to know, my mother’s faithfulness to send you $1 a month made me a wealthy woman.” I said, “How’s that?” She said, “Well, I was an only child. Dad passed away. He left the farm to mom. Mom passed away. She left the farm to me.” And just one day the city of Jackson, Mississippi, decided that they were expanding and they needed the land that her farm was on to do the expansion. She said, they said, “We can’t do this without your land. We will buy it from you.” She said, “That $1 a month, every month, produced me living a very affluent lifestyle.” Amen. What happened? That seed grew and became. That seed grew and became. Amen. God’s is no respecter of persons. Are you still here? Alright, now listen to this. 


When you talk about significant seed, you’re talking about something that is of value to you. You know, if you, for instance, a man told me one time, he said, “Brother Jerry, I’ve got an old car and I never liked that old car.” He said, “I know you like old cars, and you restore cars.” He said, “I don’t want that old car, I never liked it when it was given to me. I’d like to give it to you.” You see, it didn’t have any value to him. Okay? It was not as what the Bible would refer to as a significant seed. I said, “Sir, I’d be happy to take the car but I just want you to know since you don’t like it and the only reason you’re giving it away is to get it out of your property, then it’s not significant to you. So I don’t think you’re going to be entitled to a major harvest.” That’s like, you know, [Brother Jerry speaks to Pastor Sharon] you’ve got some dresses that you’ve liked over the years, then you decided, “Oh, okay, I’m going to sow them. I never liked these dresses anyway. I’m just going to give them away.” Well, all you’re going to get in return is a multiplied number of dresses that you don’t like. Why? Because it’s not significant. It has to be something that is of value to you. Amen? Now David said it this way in second Samuel 24 verse 24, I will not offer to God something that has not cost me anything. I will not offer to God anything that has not cost me anything. In other words, his attitude was; it has to be significant. 


Now the Message Translation says it this way, 24 I’m not going to offer God … sacrifices that are no sacrifice to me (2 Samuel 24:24 MSG). Amen. If it’s not truly a sacrifice to you, then why would you offer it to God? That was David’s attitude. In other words, if it’s not significant, if it’s not of value then I’m not going to sow it. I’ll wait until I’ve determined something of value to me that is a sacrifice, you know, and then I’ll sow that because that becomes a significant seed. Can you say; Amen? Everybody still here? Sacrifice means the willingness to give up something of importance to you. Amen. 


Giving up my international funds for that aeroplane was significant. Because I’ve been saving, and saving, and saving, and believing God that I can finally have enough to pay cash for the aeroplane. Now God’s asking me to sow it. It was significant and I’ve learned; don’t argue with God. He’s not trying to take something from you, He’s trying to set you up for something better. Hallelujah. That was the quickest harvest I’ve ever received. Two weeks into September I sowed that large significant seed and before the end of September I reaped the harvest. Oh, can you show that picture of that aeroplane again? I want to show you something.

Look at the N number on the back. November, 920, JS – Juliet, Sierra. Jerry Savelle or Jesus saves. Hallelujah. Okay. Now, look, 920. Nine representing September, 20 representing 2020. I put that on there as a testimony to the faithfulness of God. What happened? And remember 2020 we were in the middle of a pandemic. Amen. I mean when the world’s screaming, worst of times, I’m having my best of times. Why? Because I’m a sower of seed. Hallelujah. Glory to God. Anybody in here getting this tonight? [Congregation answers: Yes] Alright, praise God. 


The measure of your trust in God will determine how tightly you hold on to what He asked you to give. Obedience always opens the door to the miraculous. Another example, first Kings, chapter 17. The prophet has been told by God to go to this particular city and said, “There’s a woman there, a widow woman, that I have instructed or have commanded to sustain thee.” And when he gets to her house he finds out that she and her son are about to eat their last meal, and her words to the prophet was this, “I’m going to make myself and my son a little cake and we’re going to eat it and die.” She’d already prepared that that was going to be her last meal. The prophet said, “Well, make me a little cake first.” Oh boy, if the media had been there, CNN. Breaking news; preacher takes widow woman’s last meal. He said, it’s almost like he ignored what she said. “We’re going to eat it and die.” “Make me a little cake first.” She just told him, “I only have enough for one cake.” “Make me a little cake first.” What is he endeavouring to do? Get her to sow a significant seed. Was that little cake that she had left significant? It is the last thing she had. He said, “Make me a little cake first”. The Bible says, 15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah (1 Kings 17:15 KJV). And then it goes on, in the story it says, 16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail (1 Kings 17:16 KJV). What happened? Her significant seed produced an enormous breakthrough. The Bible says that she, her son and the prophet did eat many days. Amen. Notice the sowing of a seed produced a major breakthrough. God had her sow towards her breakthrough. And that brings this to mind. 


As I said this morning, every year when I receive the prophetic word that I’m to take across my nation, across North America, across the world, wherever God sends me. The first thing I do, my wife and I, we will say, “Lord, we receive this word by faith, and we’re expecting it to come to pass in our lives”, and always add this, I say “Lord, cause this to come to pass in my life before I start preaching it, so it will give validity to the message.” Amen. Because if I could stand up and say, “The word of the Lord for this year is that if you won’t be moved by all the chaos and the disorder in the world that’s happening around you, then God will open His hand and cause you to experience supernatural, unusual and extraordinary provision.” If that’s happening to me, before I’ve come to you, then that makes the word valid. And God does it every year. Hallelujah. 


On October the first, when we received that word, we stood up and said, “God, we receive this word, we mix our faith with it in the name of Jesus. Your Word says when we mix our faith with it, it will profit us. Now the next thing we’re going to do, Father, is we’re going to do the same principle that that little woman acted on as she was told by Elijah. We are sowing toward the fulfilment of this Word. Amen. She’s sowed toward her breakthrough. We’re sowing toward the fulfilment of this prophetic Word. Amen. We’re going to do it with the best seed we have. We’re going to do it with significant seed.” We’re going to show God that we really trust him. We’re going to show God that we don’t doubt that the principle we’re acting on, since it was established in the Garden of Eden, and You said as long as the earth remains, it shall not cease, it’s worked for us for 54 years, we’re going to keep on working it. “Father, we’re going to thank you in advance that our 2023 is going to be a year for the maximum and a year for the highest level attainable.” Come on, give the Lord a great shout. Amen. Praise God. Hallelujah. 


So are you ready? I said, are you ready? [Congregation shouts; Yes] I’m not doing this to try to take something from you. I’m doing this so God can get something to you. I just want you to know, you’re sowing of this significant seed tonight is not going to me personally, it’s going into the ministry. Okay. This ministry has already proven to you, if you’re a part of it, that they are people of integrity, they’re not going to waste your seed, they’re not going to abuse your seed. They’re going to use it wisely for the furtherance of the Kingdom of God. Amen. I asked you this morning to pray this afternoon about the significant seed that you would sow. Have you done that? Are you ready? [Congregations answer:Yes] All right, stand to your feet, if you will, please. 


Let’s remember the 16th chapter of Mark, it says referring to the disciples, they went everywhere preaching the Word, the Lord working with them, and confirming the Word with signs following. That’s what I am believing tonight. I have preached what God gave me over the last three days here. I believe the Lord has been working with me. You believe the Lord’s been working with us these days? Amen. And now the only thing left is for Him to confirm this word with signs following. So how many of you believe He will make it happen? Well, let’s praise Him in advance. Hallelujah. Let’s praise Him in advance. Glory to God. Glory to God. Hallelujah. Amen. Amen. Now, we’re going to do this as decently and in order as we possibly can. I have laid hands on over 5000 people in services just like this and it didn’t take very long if we followed the instructions. Okay? So, Tony, you want to come up here and Pastor John come up here and tell them how we’re going to do this. Let me begin. You’re going to sow your seed to my left and then when you come by me, I’m going to lay my hands on you, okay? We’re not going to have a long prayer. I can’t take the time to listen to your life story. We got everybody in here that desires to participate and we want to make sure everybody who wants to participate, now, you don’t have to, but if you want to, give you that opportunity. So let’s just keep it decent and in order. Once hands are laid on you just keep moving. Go back to your seat until everybody in here has had an opportunity to participate. I’m believing. Hallelujah. I don’t know if I’ll get back to South Africa this year. But I will get reports from this meeting and I’m expecting to hear many, many, many, many testimonies. I’m talking about many testimonies of people having major breakthroughs and they’re on their way to the maximum. Praise God. Hallelujah. Let’s shout one more time. Amen. Okay, Pastor, tell us how to do it.


Pastor John Bendixen: 

The ushers are going to hand out envelopes. So if you’ve got cash money, you can put cash money in the envelopes, they’re going to … Just quickly put your money in the envelope. It will be the quickest and easiest way to make sure that your cash is an envelope and that you can put it in the basket. So that will be just the easiest way to do it. So just quickly hand out the envelopes, ushers. The other thing I want to say is that there are some of you that as the Lord has been ministering to you, your significant seed might be more than you can put cash money into the offering tonight. I suggest that you do an E-transfer and say ‘significant seed’ on there. But I’m saying that what you do tonight is put something in the offering as your contact point. Put something, Pastor Sharon and I, that’s what we’re doing. We’re putting something in the offering tonight. But we’re going to transfer a whole lot more than we can put into the offering tonight because that’s what our significant seed is going to be. Hallelujah. So what’s going to happen is that everybody in the auditorium is going to move around to this aisle over here, this one coming in the middle over here. And as you come through this aisle, you’re going to come sow your seed. Brother Jerry’s going to stand here. Tony’s going to stand next to Brother Jerry to make sure everything …. Brother Joe will be here to help and guide and then you’ll go through on that aisle over there and you will walk out through that aisle, and we will rotate everybody through the auditorium this way. We’ll start with these people on the far side first, and then we’ll go block by block as we release people to come through. 


Brother Jerry Savelle: 

Wait until it’s your time, your aisle.


Pastor John Bendixen: 

Right. So just wait until it’s your turn. Don’t try to get ahead of the time and say, “I’ve got to walk out here, I’ve got to go so if I can get….” We’re going to do some worship afterwards because we’re going to give thanks to God for the significant seed ahead of the harvest. So this is no time to try and leave as quickly as you can. Hallelujah. Just be patient. Everybody’s got to wait the same amount of time in the auditorium. Amen. Hallelujah.


Brother Jerry Savelle: 

Before we start now, let me pray generally, over everybody. Father, in the name of Jesus, we’ve reached this place in this service, where it’s time to sow the significant seed for the breakthroughs that they’re believing for. I set myself in agreement with each and every one of them that the seed that they’re sowing is going to be the seed that will produce this breakthrough. It’s going to grow up and become exactly what they’re believing for. And in the name of Jesus, we give You praise now and even later, that You are confirming Your word with signs following in the name of Jesus. Amen. Hallelujah. Amen. All right.


Pastor John Bendixen: 

If you haven’t got an envelope, just put the cash in anyway. You start with Simon and Taryn and then you come row by row. I leave it up to you, LeRoux and to the rest of the people.


Brother Jerry Savelle: 

[Congregation bring their significant seed and Brother Jerry Savelle lay hands on them] In the name of Jesus. Thank You, Father, in the name of Jesus. Significant seed producing significant harvest in Jesus name. Thank you, sir. In the name of Jesus, just keep flowing, in the name of Jesus, in the name of Jesus. Thank You, Father, in the name of Jesus. Major breakthroughs are taking place in the spirit right now and they are going to manifest in the natural. We thank You for it in the name of Jesus. Hallelujah. Just keep them flowing, keep them flowing. Hallelujah. Can we just lift our hands and just worship the Lord? Thank You, Father, for the breakthrough that he’s believing for, she’s believing for, he’s believing for, in Jesus’ name. We thank You for it and we believe that You’re confirming your word with signs following. This family’s headed for a major breakthrough in the name of Jesus of Nazareth and we thank You for it. Thank You, Father, in Jesus’ name. This family, experiencing supernatural increase, major breakthroughs, take them to the most, the highest level attainable in Jesus’ name. Thank You, Father. We give You praise for it, iIn the mighty name of Jesus. Glory be to God forevermore. Hallelujah.


Thank You, Lord, in Jesus’ name for the major breakthroughs that are taking place in the Spirit, and they’re going to manifest in the natural. We have confidence in Your ability to make it happen, in the name of Jesus. Hallelujah. Thank You, Father. Thank You, Father. We give You praise, in Jesus’ name. Amen. Thank You, in the name of Jesus.

Thank You, Lord. Thank You Lord. Come on. Get with the program now. [Brother Jerry continues to lay hands on the congregation as they bring their significant seed. Sound and Song continues]


Hallelujah, glory, glory, glory, Hallelujah. All right, all right that is how you acted before the breakthrough came. How are you going to act when it comes? [Congregation celebrates] Glory. Hallelujah. Glory, Hallelujah. Okay, Pastor John, I am holding you responsible for sending me reports. Every time a testimony is given of a major breakthrough, let the pastor know so he can report it to us back home and we can continue to rejoice with you. Hallelujah. Amen.


Pastor John Bendixen:

Hallelujah. Praise the Lord. You know, I’ve said this to you before I’ve even said it at this conference. Pastor Sharon and I have had our biggest breakthroughs when we’ve had to praise like this in the privacy of our lounge in our home. But then when you have an opportunity to do it like this in a corporate, where you practise and you learn how this is, how you live every day. You wake up in the morning, you begin to praise for your breakthrough. Before you see it with your eyes, before it hits your hands, you praise Him in the morning. You praise Him in the noon time and you praise Him in the evening and you praise Him and you praise Him and you praise Him. Hallelujah. Glory to God.


I just wanted to share something with you while Brother Jerry is here. I’m going to release him in a minute but, you know, Brother Jerry did not have a ministry in South Africa yet at the time and the Lord asked me to sow a significant seed as a breakthrough into Kenneth Copeland Ministries. At that time, Kenneth Copeland Ministries was believing to buy an office block that they could run their warehouse in, where their property was. The amount of money they needed to be able to get that little office block, those many years ago, was R50 000. I was not directly connected with Kenneth Copeland Ministries at that time, other than being a partner. It was by far the biggest seed Sharon and I had ever sown at that time. The directors of Kenneth Copeland Ministries at that time, was the biggest seed they had ever believed God for. 


They had never received a seed that size into their ministry in South Africa to that point. The Lord put it on our hearts to put that amount of money into the offering at Kenneth Copeland ministries, as a partner seed. When they received the seed, they phoned us and called us to come and rejoice with them because this was a manifestation of their faith to buy the building. It was the biggest seed we had sown, it was the biggest seed they received. Hold on, hold on. After we sowed that seed, God had us serve Brother Kenneth and Gloria and Brother Jerry and Jesse and Creflo in 1996, where He supernaturally connected me to Brother Jerry. That was 27 years ago.. That significant seed changed the course of my future, changed the course of all of our future because today we are receiving from Brother Jerry. That significant seed is still working. It’s still working. Hallelujah. Glory to Jesus. Hallelujah. When Brother Jerry talks about a significant seed, we know what that means. We are going to sing a song now, Fight in the Light, because that is how we overcome in the light. Not in the darkness of whether …Hey, listen, I know how the devil plays with your mind when you put money in and you say, “Now listen, how am I going to…”, and the devil wants to come and try and lie to you about your seed. You just praise Him and wait for the seed to do its job. You just praise Him and wait for the seed to do its job, that’s what Brother Jerry taught us tonight. Yes, sir.


Brother Jerry Savelle: 

Let me just close it with this. If you remember the story of Abraham and God asked him to offer some sacrifices. The Bible says the bird of prey came down and tried to consume his sacrifices. Abraham had to scatter them, shoo them off. I’ve taught people in fact, the first time I ever taught this was at Mac Hammonds’ church. I said after you sow your significant seed and thoughts come in your mind, “Man, I shouldn’t have done that. I don’t know why I did that. What am I going to do now?” That is the birds of prey trying to steal your seed. I told everybody in there, I said, when those thoughts come, just stand up [Brother Jerry demonstrates shoo-ing the birds of prey, chasing them away


Some of you, when you get up in the morning and the devil starts in on you, “Boy, you made a mistake.” [Brother Jerry shoo-ing the birds of prey, chasing them away] See, they were trying to consume his sacrifice before God could even receive it. So just keep the birds of prey off your seed. Amen. And just watch what God is going to do. Hallelujah. 


Why don’t we just go ahead and shoo them away right now? [Congregation joins with Brother Jerry shoo-ing the birds of prey, chasing them away].Glory to God. Get out of my life, get out of my mind, get out of my thoughts, get out and stay out of my harvest, in Jesus’ name. Amen.


Pastor John Bendixen:



[Sound and Song: Fight in the Light


Pastor John Bendixen:

This is how we fight, this is how we fight. We fight in the Light. The fight is in our mouth, in our words, it’s in our consistency and we just tell all those things to stay away. We fight in the Light, we fight in the Light. Hallelujah. Now, you go and live the victorious life. You go and speak the victorious life. You go and you know if you feel like,” Oh no, no, no,” you say, “Shut up you, I am living the victorious life.” Hallelujah. I pray that you go and be in peace and you go in safety and in joy of the Holy Spirit. No weapon formed against you will prosper as you travel and you are protected by the Word and the blood of Jesus. He gives His angels charge over you as you go, in Jesus name. Thank you for being such a wonderful part of this conference. Thank you for coming with an expectant heart, thank you for coming with an attitude that says, “We are ready to receive.” Without your responses, your expectation, then it’s just a bunch of preaching. But when the words find a mark in your heart, then we know that God is doing something amazing. So, thank you. Thank you for being part of what God has done these days. Hallelujah. You keep praying while we travel to Ethiopia, we expect the same in Ethiopia. Hallelujah. Glory to Jesus. Glory to Jesus. I don’t know what else you want to do. I don’t know but anyway. It’s so cool. I don’t want to end the conference, but anyway. I’ve got to go because Brother Jerry is waiting for me. Bye y’all.


Pastor Sharon Bendixen:

We’ll do Drawing Closer, Matt. Drawing Closer. Drawing Closer. Thank you.


[Sound and Song: Drawing Closer]


Pastor Sharon Bendixen:

Hallelujah. Wonderful way to end an evening with a song like this. Just makes you want to go home, except for those of you that are travelling further and just get in under the blankets and just have the sweet sleep that God gives. He gives His beloved sweet sleep, His Word says. Glory to God. Sweet, because the name of Jesus is so sweet our sleep can be sweet. So, bless you all. Have a wonderful rest till we see you soon again. We love You, Father, we love You. Just sing it, one last time. Father, we love You. Hallelujah. And then we’ll be done. Father, we love You.


[Sound and Song: Drawer Closer]


Good night, everybody, all your wonderful precious people of God. See you soon.
