Point of Contact Weekend: (Saturday Night Service) – Ps John Bendixen (WTB)
Can you imagine what heaven must sound like? When there are sounds in heaven that have not even become available to us on the earth. I mean when we get into heaven we’ll hear sounds we just haven’t heard because in our human being we can’t actually express them; only in your spirit being can you express them. I mean that will be quite something, don’t you think? Wow, praise Jesus, praise the Lord, praise the Lord, praise Jesus. Glory to Your name, Lord, glory to Your name, Jesus, praise Jesus.
Well, I think you should just turn to one or two people and say “I am glad I came to church tonight”. Praise the Lord, praise Jesus.
Look at this good-looking girl here. I have been married to her for 38 years, nearly 39, yeah? 39 Years in a couple of days, in a couple of weeks actually we will be married. Check we match tonight. She left home first and I saw what she was wearing, so I thought well I have got to put my cameo outfit on, we’ve got to be in sync here you know, hallelujah. She is just one of the most awesome human beings on the earth. I am happy enough to have her and call her my wife, hallelujah. She loves God with all her heart, she worships God with all her heart and I am glad to live with her, hallelujah. Praise the Lord.
Well, you know the whole of this year, we are celebrating 20 years and I don’t want you to forget about our Clarens camp meeting, because what you’re getting a taste of tonight, we are just going to have hours and hours, where we going to just hang out together and just jol, with music and all that kind of stuff and we are going to party, hallelujah. Glory to God.
So, we are having fun tonight, right? Hallelujah. I mean, this is good church, right? Who says what church actually has to look like anyway. We have church when we get together and when we get together we have church, and so then it becomes whatever we want it to become, as we are having it. Right? Hallelujah.
Well, I heard little bits of Eric’s testimony, but I did not know the fullness of his testimony. I heard it, most of it, I heard for the first time tonight, so please don’t think that I asked him to give his testimony because I knew all of his testimony. A lot of this stuff that came out tonight I never knew about, but it resonates with me, because I chose to serve God all of my life, with all of my heart, before I chose anything else.
I can truly tell you that He has never left me. He has never forsaken me. He has never allowed me to go without money. He has never allowed me to go without a home. He has never allowed me to go without anything in my life. He has always looked after me, because I put Him first place in my life and just liked Eric said, “You can spend your whole life chasing money. You can spend your whole life chasing status. You can spend your whole life chasing a sports career,” but this one thing that did really, because we were travelling together.
When we were travelling, I went running on the treadmill and doing various things. I asked him to come and join me. He says, “No, I don’t run so well. I don’t run very much anymore.” I said, “Why not?” He said, “My knees are done, my ankles are done and there are parts of my body that are just not up to it anymore.” So I said, “No, why not?” He said, “Well when you’re training to be at that level where you’re going for state test and champions you just hours and hours every day you just train and you’re throwing hoops, you’re doing running.” He says, “Pretty soon you get to realize actually it means nothing.” All this focus on your body, all this focus on yourself, all this focus on your achievement and in the meantime the call of God, whatever God’s given you to do, it means nothing.
The glory of sport and the glory of fame, calls you and pulls you. You think this is so significant and yet in the end it is valueless. It’s valueless, it’s valueless. Now, hear me what I want to tell you.
When I was in my corporate world and I am growing up and I am earning a living, and I am going to work long hours every day and I am earning a living. Never was I living to get promoted. Never was I living for the sake of being a career person. I understood that I had to work to eat, but I had to work to have seed to sow. It was in my working, that God could bless my seed. Now, if you are a sportsman and you work so you have seed to sow, that’s a job, but if you do it to make it a career and forsake God to get it, then you will find it very difficult to make your way back to God because you forsake God to get.
It is the same way with a career. People that give up God, to pursue a career and they make money because they pursue their career, they find it very difficult to go and make their way back to God, because the career is their God. Every time you don’t go to church, every time you don’t pray, every time you make a decision for your career rather than for God, is the decision where you create a division. You divide yourself away from God. You keep dividing yourself away from God and you think well, if I go to church on a Sunday that’s okay. No, it’s what happens to the rest of the week, the rest of the month, the rest of the year. What you’re doing with yourself, where is God in your heart, where is that place of God in your life.
Whether you’re a sports person, whether you’re a career business person, whether you’re a mother that stays at home, who has to look after their children all day long. If you allow that to fill your life and not give God space and your kids dominate your world and you don’t give God space, then all you’re doing is giving God, the kids, it’s just another way of consuming your time. Hallelujah. You have to be in a place where you are making God first place in your heart. Hallelujah.
Won’t you all stand with me, please?
Something is happening in this church tonight. Something is happening in this church tonight and I know Pastor Sharon and I have been feeling it for some time, that this weekend is going to be very special. There is going to be some significant things happening here. The fact that Brother Jerry is not here, isn’t really what makes the difference. He has delegated that authority to us and we walk in that authority. I have to say, Eric took more time than he did; should have. That I gave him in the beginning of the service, but we received from him, didn’t we? Didn’t we receive well? Didn’t God speak powerfully through him tonight? I have to tell you that we are not done tonight. We are not done tonight and I asked Brother Joe to come and bless you tonight before the service and I might give him some more time later on in the weekend, tomorrow morning or tomorrow night, but this service is not complete tonight without Brother Joe saying something. I just know it in my heart he’s got to say something. Thank you, Eric, for ministering the word to us.
Brother Joe: This is actually for Pastor John’s church, but not just his church, in other words if you’re in here from another church, another country, it’s for you to. I have been authorized, how many know what this is? All right, so it’s a point of contact from who? Dr Jerry Savelle. See I am holding this so I am performing as a servant of the Apostle and the Prophet of this church. Amen? What I am getting ready to pronounce on you which are the blessings of God, anyone can take. I want to read to you what God gave me in my quiet time today. This has to do with Brother John’s church and Sharon, but it’s not only for their church. If you hear me speak it, you have the right. I learned this from Brother Kenneth Hagin, that if somebody gives a prophecy and it bears witness with you, you can grab hold of it. He said it several times and I have done it in his service and the prophecy was to another person, but I remember him saying, “If this bears witness with you, grab, hold it and run with it.” Amen.
So I want you just to listen to a few things. You can sit down. I am going to have some of you stand up. Okay? But right now you can just sit down. Let me read it to you the way God gave it to me because how many know sometimes we get to preaching. That’s not what I want to do tonight. I want to pronounce the blessings upon you. Here is what He told me and this is how He said it, “I, Reverend Joseph McCroskey servant of the Prophet and the Apostle of this church, Dr Jerry Savelle. Under the power and the authority of God pronounced supernatural increase in every area of your life. I pray these blessings in the Name of Jesus upon Heritage of Faith Ministries International, Heritage of Faith Church and all it’s outreaches.” So, that doesn’t mean it’s just the church, that means Chariots, that means it is Missions, that means every function that this church does. You put, if you are from another church, you put your stuff right in there, because this is strictly for that, but it’s for you too. It is for its pastors, I pray blessings upon its Pastors, its Leaders, Praise and Worship team, Intercessors and Prayer Warriors, all the Ministry of Helps, all the members. Now, I want everybody that is in that part that has to do with Heritage of Faith, I want you to stand up. If you are Ministry of Helps, you are a member, if you are an intercessor, prayer warriors, Pastor, leaders, praise and worship team, church outreaches of any kind, of this church stand up. You’re standing up.
I pronounce the blessings of God and the supernatural increase that dr Savelle laid on my heart to give to you. It’s just like him giving to you, but I am going to tell you it doesn’t come from dr. Savelle, it comes from God. God gave it to Dr Savelle, to give to me, to give to you. So, if you’ll receive it now, the last thing I put on my notes. All right? Now for everybody else in here, that wants that blessing, you stand up now. You’re from another church, if you’re from another country, you stand up. Now I pronounce those blessings supernatural increase of a door, a door that’s going to open and then there will be many doors off that door that will open and supernatural increase spirit, soul, and body. You might not need the finances; you might need healing in your body. The blessings will cover everything. So, supernatural increase will cover anything you have need of no matter how big or how small and you don’t have to worry about how it’s going to happen.
Brother Jerry says, “Faith in your heart and seed in your hand,” that’s what will do it. That’s what Eric was talking about. Faith in your heart; faith in who? God – and seed in your hand.
When Brother Jerry first said, about the Open Door. It took me back to a time, that I was in the Police Department. I’ll never forget this because we’ve got a call and it was a building, large, we didn’t know it was there and it was out in the county and it was all, it was hidden, you couldn’t find it. We got a tip that this place was there and it was a large building and there were many rooms in this building and there were stolen goods in it. I will never forget, we searched out and we got in, the guy said there is only one door going in. Well, I am going to tell you who is The Door – Jesus Christ. Amen.
There are doors that have never been open to you, they’re going to be open. We went to that, only one door to go in. There were no windows, there was no backdoor. There was one door in the front and it was guarded by guards. We got there, we asked for the rammer, ramming truck. Ram came in, knocked that door down, knocked most of those guys down and we went in, I have never seen the like, it was as big as this building, if not bigger, full rooms of stolen goods. Okay, hold on I am getting ready to give you the part now.
If you had anything stolen, it’s coming back. That’s anything, I don’t care if it’s your children, I don’t care if it’s finances, I don’t care if it’s your health, 2020, coming back. Now you know, I told you, I love, during praise and worship, to hear the other things, it’s God says even when I didn’t pick it up in the house. I am excited. Some of those rooms are full of kinfolks; I don’t know if that’s what you call your family. I call them my kinfolks, they’re coming back. Children coming back, members coming back, health and wealth coming back. You’ve got to find that door and the first one is Jesus. Amen.
Then He’ll show you that next door. When we got that call, we didn’t even know who this person was, but we knew who gave us that building, was Jesus. Before we went through that door, we prayed because we knew there would be people on the other side. I call them the devil warriors, but how many know God will move those devil warriors out for you.
I pray blessings on these people, all on this side. Dr Savelle pronounces blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings. Eric, start putting some blessings on, where finances are concerned, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings, blessings. Thank You, Father.
John, the Lord said for your Church, you are to put this on the bulletin board. I seen it when I came in. Anybody that has a reason, will not take it, they will just touch it. There’s nothing in that cloth, it’s a Point of Contact of God, a Point of Contact. You’re not going to look at the cloth, it’s what it is, it is a Point of Contact for having faith in your heart, seed in your hand.
Pastor John: “Sarah. Empie, will you just give this to Sarah, so she can put it on the board right now.” Put some, please don’t anybody take it off, hey. Hallelujah. Praise the Lord. Ja, praise Jesus.
I will tell you there’s something, that the principle of this has been taught before, but it’s worth mentioning again. I can certainly tell you that my life was enriched, my life has been blessed and I have had increase in my life, because of whom I am connected to. I am connected to Brother Jerry, Brother Kenneth Copeland and a whole bunch of great men, I don’t have to wonder about what’s coming to me, because I can see what’s in their lives is coming to me. They have already pressed in by faith, for what’s coming to them. What has come to them, is coming to me. Amen. Hallelujah.
There is a really powerful, there is a very powerful concept of your life will increase based on who you associate with. The increase is going to happen anyway, whether it increases in darkness or whether it increases in light, you will have increase.
I discovered this about myself too, that if you listen to intellectual people, making lots of intellectual arguments, about lots of intellectual things, then you will begin to increase in your intellectual thought process that you get stimulated. You will find that you have lots of arguments about many things. You have lots of arguments and you find those arguments become arguments about the Spirit life of God. Whether you should serve Him, with all your heart or not, because the people you hang around with are always intellectualizing everything.
It’s the same way if you hang around people that are all business makers and they are always making business, and they are doing business deals. You find yourself, start looking at business, in a different way. You are always looking for a deal, a deal, looking for a new business. Why? Because the people you hang around with do that. So, you have an increase by your association.
Can the music guys please come up?
I am very cautious about what I do. I am cautious about what I do, but I want to thank some of the musicians that the Lord has recently brought into our Ministry and have come to serve us and help us. Thank you, Denholm. I have a word for you Denholm, for Riaan, and for Nick. I want to say this and I am being very careful about this, but I want to say this, “That your lives have already started to experience increase because you have willingly given your time and you have willingly come and being part of us and come from Johannesburg to come and be part of us and I want to say, stick with us greater increase is coming, it is, it is. Greater increase is coming, Riaan, it is. Greater increase is coming, Nick, yes it is. To everybody else that’s on the band here in music you know. I speak to you guys because you’re fairly new to us, you know, but increase is coming, Garth. Increase is coming.” Hallelujah.
I know Miles’ increase is coming. He’s already texted me this week, increase is coming. Hallelujah, hallelujah. Praise Jesus, praise the Lord, praise the Lord, praise Jesus, praise Jesus.
Isn’t it fun that we get to do this again at nine o’clock tomorrow morning? I want to tell you The Point of Contact message is strong in me and we are going to get to The Point of Contact message tomorrow morning and we are going to do Point of Contact tomorrow and we will have a major celebration tomorrow night. Hallelujah, praise Jesus, praise Jesus, glory to God, praise Jesus, praise Jesus.
We are going to sing one song now. I don’t know which one you sing, supernatural increase? Please can we sing that song? The New Open Door. Before we do that you know the drill, put your hand on your heart. I am a son of God. And because I am a son of God, everything comes to me that I need to have in my life. There will be no hindrance, it all comes to me. Because I declare I am a son of God, in Jesus Name. Hallelujah, praise the Lord, glory to Jesus, glory to Jesus.
I am going to close the service and you can just stand and worship with us. I bless your trip home. I pray, the protection of God over you. No weapon formed against you will prosper. I pray, increase and blessing, in your life. I pray, peace and sleep and joy and many good things. Tomorrow you are going to have, tomorrow morning and tomorrow night and I’ll tell you, Monday is going to be different for you. Monday is going to be a whole new different world, that you’re going to step into on Monday. Monday is going to be completely different, completely different because God has got a New Door and Supernatural Increase for us to walk in. Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah. Go wild!
