DESCRIPTION:

In this show we discuss HOW to receive MIRACLES … real miracles … for that impossible work you have been wanting to do: the work that will impact the world. Also, two SPECIFIC messages TO and FOR you from God.


GREAT ADVICE FOR YOUR SUCCESS

ALL THINGS THAT JESUS HAS ARE YOURS!   BELIEVE BIG!

“He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of mine and declare it to you.”  [John 16:14-15]

Are you having trouble believing for GREAT THINGS – impossible things – in your life and ministry? How big can you THINK? How big can you ASK? Make sure your plans and your goals go BEYOND what you can do. When you enter the realm of impossibility, then you are in God’s realm: the realm of MIRACLES. Then, He will have to get the glory!

Don’t hesitate to BELIEVE BIG!

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above ALL that we ASK or THINK, according to the power that works in us . . .”  [Ephesians 3:20]

Go ahead and START that new work for God . . . for His glory!


A MESSAGE IN TONGUES

    Kara ma siko tando.

Karika barundo sandai.

Tama karinda – ra kindi ruko!

Ba ku rando siko!

 

HERE IS THE INTERPRETATION OF THE ABOVE MESSAGE IN TONGUES

    You have left much, but not all.

Parts were taken, you did not leave them.

I have seen the secret place – which no man knows!

I will reward you!


HERE IS A PROPHECY TO ENCOURAGE YOU IN THAT WORK YOU WANT TO DO

    I FINISHED THE WORK.

I came to be wounded in combat.

I shed my BLOOD and gave My life to HEAL the SEPARATION between God and man.

I defeated the enemy.

I bought you to God with My own blood.

You now belong to God.

You have My Word and the promises in My Word.

You have the Holy Spirit: the Other One Who empowers you and guides you into all truth.

You have resurrection power which assures your success, and even in failure restores you.

You have My Name. Use My Name to vanquish the enemy and to obtain MIRACLES, resources, and joy.

You have the ministry of the Holy Angels to help you and protect you.

FINISH THE WORK I have assigned you: short term and long term.

BE PATIENT.

BE AT PEACE.


AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF SUCCESS IN YOUR WORK FOR GOD IS THIS: CONDESCEND TO MEN OF LOW ESTATE

I was in a church one time which consistently does lots of good work to help homeless and disadvantaged people. However, after the service there were three homeless men sitting in the lobby at a table but nobody was talking to them. A friend asked me if I would sit with them and talk to them. I was very glad to do so and had a wonderful conversation with them.

I wonder if lots of times we feel that just because we give money to charities or the homeless or other missions to indigent people that we are doing our duty. I wonder if we are really being a “friend to the friendless.” People like to be recognized . . . and they like to feel accepted. Jesus taught us, “As you would like people to do to you, do exactly so to them.”  [Luke 6:31]

The scripture which contains the words the LORD spoke to me is Romans 12:16: “Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.”  The Greek word used here for “condescend” is the word “sunapago” and means “to take off together,? that is, “transport with.?

One time I was telling a friend, who is an executive pastor of a rapidly growing church, that I have about two inches of letters (not counting all the emails) requesting me to come hold seminars to train pastors and Christian workers and to hold miracle meetings. The other person told me: “You should get to know [name withheld] because he has lots of money.” I thought to myself, “Why in the world do would I want to know someone just because they have money?!”

Take a look at the several Bible versions I have listed below and see their translation and/or paraphrase of Romans 12:16, and what it means to “condescend to men of low estate.”

New Jerusalem Bible:

“Give the same consideration to all others alike. Pay no regard to social standing, but meet humble people on their own terms. [Do not congratulate yourself on your own wisdom.]”

New American Bible:

“Have the same regard for one another, do not be haughty but associate with the lowly; do not be wise in your own estimation.”

Revised English Bible:

“Live in agreement with one another. Do not be proud, but be ready to mix with humble people. Do not keep thinking how wise you are.”

New Revised Standard Version:

“Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty but associate with the lowly. [Do not claim to be wiser than you are.]”

The Living Bible:

“Work happily together. Don’t try to act big. Don’t try to get into the good graces of important people, but enjoy the company of ordinary folks. And don’t think you know it all.”

The Good News Bible:

Have the same concern for everyone. Do not be proud, but accept humble duties [or make friends with humble people]. Do not think of yourselves as wise.”

I searched what different men of God in the past (and others) thought about this passage in Romans 12:16. I have listed them below.

“There is nothing that disrupts harmony as much as seeking glory, when every man detests a base estate, and ambitiously seeks to be exalted.”   [Geneva Bible Notes]

“Be a companion of the humble, and pass through life with as little noise and show as possible.  Let the poor, godly man be your chief companion; and learn from his humility and piety to be humble and godly.  The term “sunapagomenoi,” which we translate condescend, from “sun, together,” and “apagw, to lead,” signifies to be led, carried, or dragged away to prison with another; and points out the state in which the primitive Christians were despised and rejected of men, and often led forth to prison and death.”  [Adam Clarke’s Commentary]

“It does not properly mean to condescend, but denotes a yielding, or being guided and led in the thoughts, feelings, plans, by humble objects. Christians should seek the objects of interest and companionship not among the great, the rich, and the noble, but among the humble and the obscure. They should do it because their Master did it before them; because his friends are most commonly found among those in humble life; because Christianity prompts to benevolence, rather than to a fondness for pride and display; and because of the influence on the mind produced by an attempt to imitate the great, to seek the society of the rich, and to mingle with the scenes of gaiety, folly, and ambition.”  [Albert Barne’s Commentary]

“Sympathize and associate with the poor, humble, afflicted, especially such as suffer for righteousness’ sake.”  [Family Bible Notes]

“Desire not riches, honour, or the company of the great.”  [John Wesley]

“Instead of seeking pre-eminence, we are to walk in lowly spirit like our Savior.”   [People’s New Testament Commentary]

“Be carried away with (borne along with) the lowly things” . . . or . . . “with lowly men.”   [Robertson’s New Testament Word Pictures]

I trust today we will all reflect on how our LORD would have us to condescend to men of low estate, and pray that we might please Him in doing so . . . continuously.

REMEMBER … GOD IS FOR YOU

Do not hesitate to BELIEVE BIG!

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above ALL that we ASK or THINK, according to the power that works in us . . .”  [Ephesians 3:20]

Go ahead and START that new work for God . . . for His glory!

DESCRIPTION OF THIS BLOG

In the future economic chaos that will encompass the world
you may … if NOT prepared … suffer financial and material loss.
This message will help you to recover all … and to do greater works for the LORD.

________________________________________________________

HOW TO RECOVER LOSS

If you have lived long enough, it is quite possible you have encountered some type of loss … or let me put it this way: “Suffered some kind of loss.”  Suffer because any type of loss can cause you some kind of mental or physical anguish. What you want to be aware of – and guard against – is that you do not allow the loss to cause “anguish of the spirit.”

Many times loss is the result of a particular stratagem of Satan to get you to STOP action, or to DISCOURAGE you from going forward, or to harass you mentally and CONFUSE you so you do not focus on the important goals of the Kingdom of G-d: the ordained purpose of your existence at this particular time of your life.

At times, the loss we encounter may be our own fault as the result of:

Ignorance (lack of knowledge in a specific area);
Disobedience to G-d’s Law;
Not taking advantage of information available to us;
Presumption; and,
Foolishness (like gambling).

There can be as many types of loss as there are activities or relationships in which we are involved.

Financial loss;
Loss of a loved one;
Physical or mental loss due to health issues;
Loss of the anointing of the Ruach Ha Kodesh (the Holy Spirit).

In this teaching I want to teach you HOW to recover loss. (I was on my way to ride my motorcycle all day when G-d instructed me STOP and to give this word – this message – to His people.)

Many times, hard or difficult times are a good sign, especially for the People of G-d.

For example, a physical condition or material situation – or just tough thingswill crop up right before you are entering a NEW dimension of service to G-d.

You might not be aware that a NEW dimension of service to the LORD is about to unfold … or you may have been praying and fasting for it.

A NEW level or area of service to G-d is extremely important for the people you will be reaching AND for the Lord Yeshua Ha Meshciach you are serving.

When King David and his men returned to Ziklag they discovered their wives and children and all their property had been taken by the Amalekites.

When consulting with the LORD, David was directed to “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”

The message for you is to “Go, recover all the enemy has stolen from you.” Bind Satan in JESUS’ name and command him to repay you seven times for everything he has stolen from you. “Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.” (Proverbs 6:30-31)

How much more shall the devil, using his demonic agents to steal from you, be commanded in JESUS’ name to restore to you sevenfold, if not more!

Notice that David and his men not only recovered their wives, children, and property that had been stolen … but, also, recovered all the spoil the Amalekites had stolen from the Philistines and out of the land of Judah.

Notice, also, that right before this happened, David was greatly distressed (when his men discovered their loss) because the people were considering stoning him. However, “David encouraged himself in the LORD his G-d.” (1 Samuel 30:6)

A few days later after recovering the losses at Ziklag plus extra riches, David received word that his enemy, King Saul, had been slain in battle. David then went up to Hebron, where the men of Judah anointed him King over Judah. (Even though the LORD’s Prophet Samuel had anointed him King previously.)

SUMMARY

Hard times are many times a sign that you are entering a NEW dimension of service to G-d … and blessing: for YOU and for the people you will be serving.

Hard times are many times a sign that the devil is greatly concerned about the NEW dimension of service you will be entering, and therefore is trying to defeat you through discouragement so that you will roll over and quit. Do NOT do it. Get up, ACT, and recover it all.

In hard times you have an EXCELLENT opportunity to encourage others:

They can see your trust in G-d.

Your declaration of faith will position you into G-d’s favor.

Your testimony will encourage others to KNOW or GROW Messiah Yeshua in their lives.

SUGGESTION

Get alone with G-d and and LISTEN to Him. (You may want to fast.)

If your loss has been financial or material (as many people’s will be in the future) then make a COVENANT with G-d.

Tell Him that you want to give him a certain amount above your normal tithes and offerings for a certain amount of time or a certain length of new venture you are entering. (See Tanakh: Malachi Chapter Three.) You can give this money to your Synagogue or Church or Prayer Group … or to the needy, orphans, and widows.

Learn to work with G-d “hand-in-hand” to bless the nations. This is TRUE prosperity.

“But you shall remember the LORD your G-d: for it is he that gives you power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he swore unto your fathers …” (Torah: Deuteronomy 8:18)

Remember: the devil wants to kill you, steal from you, and destroy you. But the GOOD NEWS is that Messiah Yeshua came to Planet Earth that YOU might have life … and have it MORE ABUNDANTLY. This is G-d’s will for you in addition to eternal life in Heaven!

Below I am listing some resources to help you.

Get up, ACT, and recover it all!

THE NEW YOU


When I was a young boy there was a family of trash collectors who would come down our alley every week to collect trash from the neighborhood and the local grocery.

I always felt good when they came by because they called me by name, and because of that I felt important. I also noticed a very marked difference about them: they always exuded joy. And after many years I discovered why: they knew Jesus!

No one in the community – wealthy, poor, business owners, educators – had the joy they had. They were prosperous in their hearts. As they folded boxes and collected trash, they manifested the presence of the Lord.

My family knew many people: political, religious, business, educational, and union leaders. However, NO family left their mark on a little boy like the Turner family: the trash collectors. The seed of God’s JOY in them made an indelible imprint on my mind and heart.

Through the years I have come to realize that one of the marks of the Christian – even in sorrow and trials – is JOY.

“For the JOY of the Lord is your strength.” [Nehemiah 8:10]

“You will show me the path of life: in your presence is fullness of JOY; and at your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.” [Psalm 16:11]

“And the disciples were filled with JOY, and with the Holy Ghost.” [Acts 13:52]

I know that I will see the Turner family in Heaven, and have the privilege to live with them forever. I would rather collect trash and be filled with God’s JOY than have all the riches of this world.

There are three (3) instructions the Lord has given me to communicate with you in this teaching. The reason I shared with you about the Turner family is because JOY will be the resultant of these three instructions from the Lord … JOY will be imparted to you as a permanent commodity as you learn to draw near the Spirit and fulfill your objectives on Planet Earth. Below are the three instructions from the Lord.

INSTRUCTION 1

You’re about to lose your vision. Don’t do it. Don’t give up!


If you don’t quit, you’ll win. But, if you quit, you can’t win!

“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” [Proverb 29:18a]

Because your vision is LARGER … and WORLD ENCOMPASSING, it has taken longer to develop. It has taken longer to prepare the natural infrastructure and logistics. These have been in a stage of preparation behind the scenes by the Holy Spirit and the Holy Watchers (the Holy Angels).

Also, the enemy has lied to you, telling you that your vision objectives are not going to be fulfilled. You can prove the devil wrong! Here’s how: the Lord told me to tell you to look at the bits and pieces that have been, and are already, coming in place. These are the tips of the iceberg.

The system is in place in God’s mind and economy because of your prayers, fasts, sacrifices, and faith. But now the enemy is trying to discourage you so that you will drop your vision … and in doing so it would be aborted. But the Spirit of God is NOT going to let you do that, and He is sending me to VALIDATE your victory.

You will SUCCEED. As a matter of fact, God wants you to ask Him for MORE than you have been asking. Here’s a secret: share your NEW JOY that will be imparted to you with the Lord. “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” [Psalm 37:4] The Hebrew word used here for delight means to have pleasurable emotion. You’re going to go through!

Listen to the radio program titled “Go Through Closed Doors” on the RealMiracles website (instructions are at the bottom of the end of this newsletter).

INSTRUCTION 2

God isn’t finished with you yet, my friend. Many of you reading this newsletter are about to experience a MAJOR CHANGE in your ministry and life. For some of you this word is a confirmation of what God has already been speaking to you. For others, you will receive the witness of the Holy Spirit concerning the same.

You will begin to see how things in the past have been used by God to fashion the NEW YOU!

Some of these things in the past were brought about by the faults and sins of other people … some were brought about as a result of your own disobedience … and some through obedience. BUT GOD …!

“BUT GOD … even when we were dead in sins … has quickened us together with Christ …” [Ephesians 2:4-7]

“BUT GOD raised Him from the dead.” [Acts 13:30]

“BUT GOD commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
[Romans 5:8]

BUT GOD can turn around the plans and devices of the enemy and make them serve God’s purpose. God loves you, my friend! If God can use a murderer like Moses, if God can use a fornicator like Samson, if God can use a murderer and adulterer like King David … all of whom repented and were cleansed … then God can use you! Nobody loves you like Jesus!

You will SEE how things in the past have brought you to be the NEW YOU: one who has a close, intimate walk with the Holy Spirit. Trials and hard times have made you a new sharp threshing instrument. But don’t live in the past … and don’t be the old you any longer.

That’s why God is bringing changes in your life and ministry: geographical changes, ministry changes, relational changes. And, in the future you will look back again and SEE how you were like Ruth in the Tanakh (the Old Testament). Read the Book of Ruth; it contains only four chapters but the Spirit will speak many great things to you concerning your future.

The NEW YOU is being marked with the JOY of the Lord! This will be your sign and the enemy cannot hinder it. The joy will be your sustaining strength, and because of this strength you will have peace in all matters and concerns of life: large and small; familial and interpersonal; secular and spiritual; business and recreational. As a result, you will REST more: physically and mentally. Your life – your days on earth – will be extended.

Also, concomitant with this MARK – the joy of the Lord – will be extra elements of angelic protection.


Your life and ministry will be in retrospect like Ruth’s.

  • Ruth was shut out: by society and by the Law.
  • Ruth experienced great loss and sadness.
  • Ruth left her comfort zone.
  • Ruth experienced great cultural change.
  • Ruth was not ashamed to do menial work.
  • Ruth pledged allegiance to Israel’s God.
  • Ruth found favor with God and man.
  • Ruth was blessed with a new family and mate.
  • Ruth was liberated permanently.
  • Ruth was blessed with wealth.
  • Ruth became the progenitor of Messiah and his seed line. (You will extend the seed line of Messiah by the people you bring to Him.)

Listen to the radio program titled “Release God’s Will” on the RealMiracles website (instructions are at the bottom of the end of this newsletter).


INSTRUCTION 3

Never be afraid to leave your comfort zone.

If Ruth had not left her comfort zone, none of the blessings would have overtaken her.

I know of a case concerning a businessman who was called to preach several years ago. He put off the call for several years until he felt he could financially make the move. When he was financially secure, he decided to quit his business and obey the Lord’s leading.

He told his pastor in Michigan (USA) that he wanted to go into the ministry. The pastor told him that he would like him to preach in 30 days at the Sunday evening service. The man prepared a message and when that Sunday evening arrived he went to the pulpit to preach. When he opened his mouth to preach … nothing came out! He could NOT speak. As far as I know, he never regained the ability to speak.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German theologian, was martyred by the Nazis at the age of 39 in 1945. He was involved with the German underground and hanged as a result. In his book, The Cost of Discipleship, he wrote:

“The new situation must be created – the impossible situation in which everything is staked solely on the word of Jesus. The road to faith passes through obedience to the call of Jesus. Unless a definite step is demanded, the call vanishes into thin air, and if people imagine that they can follow Jesus without taking this step, they are deluding themselves.” [1]

Don’t put off what God is calling you to do. You may have been serving God for years in ministry but you must realize there is NO seniority in God’s vineyard. If you don’t do the job, God will find someone else. Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone IF God is leading you to another field of ministry.

God is LARGE and IN CHARGE! Your identity is in Him!

Listen to the radio program titled “Know God’s Direction” on the RealMiracles website (instructions are at the bottom of the end of this newsletter).

SUMMARY

  • The NEW YOU is being marked with the JOY of the Lord.
  • Don’t lose your VISION … don’t give up.
  • Many are about to experience a MAJOR CHANGE.
  • You will REST more: physically and mentally.
  • You will have extra elements of ANGELIC PROTECTION.
  • Never be afraid to leave your COMFORT ZONE.
  • You will SUCCEED … your vision will come to pass.

Ask for GREATER things!

THE ANOINTING FOR SUCCESS

You can listen to this podcast NOW by clicking here: www.apostle.libsyn.com

__________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION

How to overcome obstacles and experience MIRACLES … real miracles … through the anointing of the Holy Spirit. What to do when the devil and people lie to you and about you. How to WIN and turn obstacles into opportunities.

___________________________________________________________

THE ANOINTING FOR SUCCESS

Your enemy, the devil, will lie to you through people (even Christians), through situations, through your mind, through demons: he is a “master of deception”.

But I have GOOD NEWS for you. Your Friend, Jesus Christ, will tell you the Truth. He is “The Truth”; His Word is Truth.

Listen to the voice of God. Read His Word and LEARN from Him. Pray and HEAR His Spirit.

Stop worrying about the giant(s) in front of you: the forces, voices and beings that threaten you and keep you from being creative, productive and powerful. David’s brothers THOUGHT the giant, Goliath, was too big to fight. But David THOUGHT the giant was TOO BIG TO MISS! [1 Samuel 17:47]

How do you SEE your challenges? How do you PERCEIVE them: as obstacles … or as opportunities? When Moses sent the 12 spies into the Promised Land the ten men of fear had a different perspective than the two men of faith, Caleb and Joshua. The men of fear saw the people of the land as giants and themselves as but “grasshoppers in their sight.”

The 10 spies gave the people of Israel a bad report of the land, which they had spied out, saying, “We are NOT able to go up against this people, for they are stronger than we are.” But Caleb said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well ABLE to overcome.” (Numbers 13:30)

The Hebrew word “able” used in this passage (“yakol”) means “to have power, or the capacity to prevail or succeed.” My wonderful mother many times read me the little children’s book about the train going up the hill, pulling a load, and saying “I KNOW I can, I KNOW I can, I KNOW I can!”

David succeeded in killing the giant, Goliath, the same way the two men of faith, Caleb and Joshua, succeeded in entering the promise land: because he saw, as they did, obstacles as opportunities for MIRACLES: avenues through which God could be glorified! The size of the person is more important than the size of the problem. Who are you on the inside and Whom do you trust!

Don’t focus on the giants … focus on God. That’s why the enemy lies to you. The devil wants to get your attention away from your Heavenly Father: away from His love for you and His ability to provide for you.

I remember teaching my first born son how to sail. We were in a harbor of the ocean where many yachts and boats were maneuvering. My son kept his attention on another yacht … what to miss … instead of our tack (where we should be going). He was focusing on what to miss instead of where to go. So it is with many Christians: focusing on the giants instead of their opportunities and goals.

Stop worrying about whether you’re going to sin and start praising and THANKING God for helping you to live holy! Stop being concerned about failure and start praising and THANKING God for helping you to be successful. Also, pray AHEAD OF TIME for what you’re going to do AFTER YOUR VICTORY!

Many people have what psychologists label a “fear of failure”; but I would say, in the people I have counseled through the years, just as many or more have a “fear of success”! King Saul was an example of this. I think he had a “fear of success”. Pray AHEAD OF TIME and receive the anointing for what you’re going to do AFTER YOUR VICTORY!

Don’t give in and don’t give up. If you don’t quit you’ll win!

“I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.”
(Philippians 4:13)

“With God ALL things are possible.”
(Matthew 19:26)
