Prophecy by Kenneth Copeland (2008)

0

“Pay Attention to Me…My system is stronger than ever.”

Don’t pay attention to or make any plans based on what the media says

or what the politicians say. Stand on My Word in John 16. Pay attention to Me.

I [the Holy Spirit] will obey verses 13-15. I will show you things to come. I will

lead you through troubled times. I already have THE plan for you, and it’s very

good. Follow it. It will not only get you through, it will place you in a very high

place—a rich place—a strong place of victory.

You will have to discipline yourself and be diligent to listen to Me. All the

other voices will have a plan, a word, an idea for your future and security.

Don’t listen to Babylon’s system. It has fallen apart. My system is stronger than

ever. My kingdom is flourishing, and THE BLESSING is the place to be.

Keep your eyes on My Word. Listen to it. It will guide you and I will

perform it. Love Me. Love My people as I have loved you. Walk in it. Love never

fails, and neither does My plan.

Be very cautious to stay completely clean from covetousness. First

Timothy 6:10 must live in the forefront of your thinking. If you will do these

things and continue therein, you will come into your wealthy place. A place

lifted up. A place in Me already planned and prepared for you now. Here. Not

heaven—not yet. But it will seem like heaven right in the midst of all the

trouble, and you’ll be able to reach out to untold numbers of suffering people

with the Good News of the gospel.

I’m coming very soon. Sooner than you think. Keep your eyes on Me and

you’ll get the job done.

Opportunity for A Testimony (Jerry Savelle)

0

Two people can go through exactly the same circumstance and see the situation completely differently. A victorious person will see every trial as an opportunity to apply the Word of God and to have a testimony. A defeated person will see a trial as yet another problem to overcome in his struggle through life.

Winners never see tests or trials, all they see are opportunities! Other people looking in from the outside may think that they are going through hard times, but winners don’t see it that way.

James 1:2 NKJ says, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.”

God’s will is that every trial is turned into an opportunity to bring increase to you in some way. God wants you to come out of every trial with the advantage. It is never God’s will that the devil succeed against you.

When you know that you are going to come out of every trial with something good, you can walk through it with joy. You can retain a positive attitude.

“And we know that all things, work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 NKJ

When you are walking in love with God and are following His plan and purpose for your life, you can face every negative situation with complete confidence that God will turn the tables as you exercise your faith in His Word.

Romans 8:31 says if God be for you, who can be against you? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for you, how will he not with Him freely give you all things?

God is a good God. It is NEVER God’s will for the devil to win or end up with any advantage in your life. It is always God’s plan to turn trials around for your good.

When you accept the fact that God has a plan for you to benefit and increase in every negative situation, you can face trials with joy. What others see as problems, you can’t help but see as opportunities, because you know the final outcome. You can walk through anything with joy because you know for certain that you will end up with a testimony to the goodness of God.

Understanding the Tithe (Kenneth Copeland)

2

“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 3:10-11).

This is God Himself speaking and He is saying, “Prove Me in this.” This is the only time in the Word where God instructs us to prove Him, and it is the one area where most people have withdrawn from proving God.

Tithing was instituted under the Old Covenant as a way for God to communicate His blessing to His people. The word tithe means “tenth or ten percent.” Proverbs 3:9 says, “Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase.” Tithes are to be given from the first fruits, from the top— the gross, not the net. A person who does not tithe is robbing God and is operating under a curse (Malachi 3:8-9). The first fruits of our income is God’s; it is not ours to use to pay bills.

Tithing is different from seed-faith gifts and offerings. The tithe is your 10 percent that God commands us to give—gifts and offerings are above and beyond it. Some people want to give “as the Lord leads them” instead of tithing—but the Spirit would never lead you against His Word. The Word says to tithe.

Tithing is not only an Old Covenant command, but also a New Testament blessing and privilege. Hebrews 7:8 says, “Here men that die receive tithes. But there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.”

In the Old Covenant, God’s people would place their tithe—the first fruits of their increase—in a basket, present it to the high priest, and say to him, “I profess this day unto the Lord thy God, that I am come unto the country which the Lord sware unto our fathers for to give us” (Deuteronomy 26:2-3). They spoke their redemption.

According to Colossians 1:13, we have been delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom of his dear Son. As believers, we are living in the kingdom of God. We have entered into our inheritance in Jesus Christ and possess it in His Name. Jesus is the High Priest of the New Covenant. When we take our tithes to our High Priest and speak our redemption, He receives them and then presents them to the Father (Hebrews 3:1, 7:8).

When we stand on our covenant with God and exercise our rights as tithers, we lay a foundation for success and abundance. Satan has no chance against us. Tithing the tithe rebukes the devourer! When we resist Satan in the Name of Jesus, God’s rebuke is in action. God told the Israelites their words were stout against Him. They were confessing lack and want. It is important to speak our redemption in order for the tithe to produce.

Where you place you tithe depends on where you are receiving your spiritual food. God says to bring the tithes into the storehouse. That is where the food is—where a pastor, an evangelist, an apostle or some other ministry is in operation. When you give, you are not giving to an individual, but for the furtherance of the gospel. Since your tithe is God’s money and since Jesus is the One who handles and receives it, you should always pray and let Him tell you where it should be put to work.
