SP True Stories: The case of the gold coins

12 Oct

A good friend gave me a couple $1 US gold colored coins many years ago.  They became to me, a significant tangible installment of a position of faith, not unlike Peter’s gold coin in the fish’s mouth.20161012_083724

Over the years I’ve purchased and given away 100s of ‘gold’ coins as a means of imparting faith in people’s hearts to believe for God’s full provision.  Earlier this year, someone gave me $1000 specifically to purchase 1000 more coins to give away to 1000 more people.  Think of it, God gives us more so that we can give more away.  Is that cool or what?!  He really loves to ‘dance’ with us.

Then a few months ago I gave 5 ‘gold’ coins to a friend and his family who were on a very intentional faith journey with God.  We prayed for them and prophesied over them and sent the on their way.  In the next few months God blessed them in many different ways, much more than they could have ever imagined.  In fact, at one point someone gave them 39 real gold coins.  Just recently, that friend sent me four of those real gold coins, valued about $250 US each.

What a deal!  You start out with God giving you two little coins… you catch the ‘vision’… then start giving away hundreds of these $1 gold colored coins… God blesses you with greater means to give away more… then He ups the stakes by giving you real gold!

He’s definitely better than we ever thought!!!

      Can you just see the smile on His face when He says, let’s just see what they think about this gift!! He calls all the angels in to enjoy the fun story as it unfolds. Wonderful God, He is!

    I was so blessed to meet you nearly 4 years ago, to learn the story behind your $1 gold coins, read your book and give nearly 100 copies of them away. Reading your book was part of our journey of coming to Redding to attend school at Bethel and even getting real gold money. You just never know how big a “seed” will grow. Thanks for planting that seed in us. I recommend that readers get a copy of your book. http://www.dpmkc.org/supernaturalprovision/

      Henry, I have loved following your faith journey… and Ben’s, too. I’ve watched you respond to the seed of faith that arose in your heart… and it truly has grown into a quite an ‘oak of righteousness’ over the last few years. And your position of faith now is being exported to others through your life and testimony. Wow! AND, you have real gold coins as further anchoring of your faith and testimony!!!! I love this faith walk with God. He just ‘out-does’ Himself in our eyes. Thank you, Lord!

    Good to hear from you. Praise God for His provision!! Did I ever tell you that Paul B said I would need to read your book 5 times!! I have read it twice so far. Judy is after me (a good thing) to do what Caroline Leaf’s Switch on Your Brain book states,” reread 17 times the 21 day Brain Detox Plan to recover getting rid of all of the neurotoxins.” I have done it once and am taking a break. Where are you? It helps nosy people like me. We are training to join the Healing Rooms in Sun Prairie where we go to church. David & Yvonne Disch the leaders both got sick recently. Yvonne called Cal Pierce & Joan Hunter’s ministry for prayer for them. Both are recovering!! Love to Deb, You and the family. Cool hat.


    Jerry & Judy

      Every once in a while I’ll read portions of my book and smile at how much God wrote this story. I think He really likes to stretch and empower people’s faith for His overt goodness!

      We’re home now but will be in Joplin, MO… Colorado Springs, Denver, Ft Collins, CO… Laramie, WY… and Chicago over the next 2 1/2 weeks.

      The Lord grace you richly in Sun Prairie and ….

    Remembering when you gave me a gold coin several years ago. Still have it. It’s been a meaningful reminder to me of His supernatural provision. Thanks for your faithfulness to testify of His faithfulness. 🙂

      Here’s a blessing: May that position of faith that gold coin inspires, continue to grow into a mighty oak of righteous faith to believe for more than enough provision of everything pertaining to life and godliness, for you and yours!!!!
