The Faith OF God to Proclaim, in the 2010s

18 May

Recently I saw this 100 year prophecy from Bob Jones for the first time.  You can read it below… or view one of the times Bob Jones spoke it here.  Of particular interest to me was the part about the 2010s (in RED below).  Look at how Bob prophesied exactly what we’re doing right now! 

First: we must get the revelation of having the faith OF God.  (Young’s Literal Translation renders Mark 11:22 this way.)  We’ve been trying to build our faith IN God.  But now we’re realizing that we can have the faith OF God… as long as we’ve heard FIRST.  We’re beginning to believe that God doesn’t lie.  And if He said it, then we can say it.   We must put in the “earring” first (learn to hear).  Then as we hear, “we don’t pray TO God anymore… we pray WITH Him”. (For more on this read my post Three Eras of Prayer.)

Second: We proclaim what we’ve heard… we call it into being.

What’s SO amazing for me is that I started believing and practicing this 6-10 years ago… and blogging and preaching it for the last few years.  Now we hear it frequently as one of the current messages.  Another great confirmation that we’re ‘on track’!!  Thank you, God!

THE 100 YEAR PROPHESY

BOB JONES: “What is the Lord doing? I’ve brought this 100 year prophesy for a long time, let’s look at it.

– The 1950’s revealed the power of God. William Branham, Oral Roberts, AA Allen.
– The 1960’s revealed the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit invaded the denominations.
– The 1970’s revealed the great teachers of God and they began to raise up.
– The 1980’s revealed the prophets of God.
– The 1990’s revealed the government of God.
– The 2000’s would reveal the glory of God. You haven’t seen anything. Wait till you see the next two years!
– The 2010’s would reveal the faith of God. It’s not, have the faith “in” God.  It is to have the faith “of” God.  And it’s going to be those that have that earring in and hear what God is saying.  And what you’ll do, you’ll proclaim it.  And you’ll bring it into being.
– The 2020’s will reveal the rest of God. To where you can rest from your labors and God will work His work through you in your rest and in your peace.
– The 2030’s will reveal the family of God.
– The 2040’s will reveal the kingdom of God.
– The 2050’s will reveal the sons and daughters of God

– I only saw until 2060 and the church was still here and it wasn’t defeated by any means.  It had really grown and looked a lot like Christ.  So if you’ve got short range plans, make long range plans.”

THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH

BOB JONES: “So what’s going on? 25 years ago I brought a prophesy.  The prophesy then was that the greatest showing on earth was going to begin.  I would live to see it.  It would be a 3 ring circus.

The front ring would be Praise.  The center ring would be Proclamation.

What Todd has been doing here isn’t prayer.  It is hearing and obeying and proclaiming what God is speaking to him.  This is creative from now on.  It’s going to be called in.  You’ve never seen it before, you’ve never heard it before.  It’s going to be brought in by the Spirit of Prophesy.

“You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment.  And will you not bear witness to it?  I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve] which you have not known.  They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, Behold, I knew them!” – Isa 48:607 AMP

There is nothing to compare it to.  This is a harvester of harvesters…”

“…What He is doing with all of you is He is scrubbing you with pumice.  He is cleaning your conscience of every defilement.  And if you’ve got a clean conscience, your conscience is your spirit.

“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.” – Heb 10:23 NKJV

And if your conscience is cleaned, get ready to be joined in communion with the Holy Spirit.  And He will relay what Papa is speaking.  And you don’t pray to God anymore, you pray with Him.  And you proclaim for Him.  And you begin to speak over towns.  You begin to speak over colleges.  This 3 ring circus that has began here: you’ve got a lot more intercession behind here than you have any idea, because a lot of them are home now.  And we’ve been praying for years for this.”

Moving into supernatural provision – getting started

10 May

Let’s try a simplified approach to our journey into supernatural provision.

How do I get started?

Let’s say you have a skill, service or anointing and you believe that if you were to develop it, God could use it to supply for you.  But before you ‘burn the bridges’ and make some impulsive radical decisions which may cut off your current provision, let’s address some issues.

1. Are all of your bills caught up and paid in full?  If not, and if you are chronically behind in your bills, then temporarily get another vocational job because a man “must provide for his household…” – I Tim 5:8

The principle here is; either our provision comes 1) through our faith, anointing and growing favor in our relationship with God… OR… 2) we must obtain our provision by our brains or our brawn.

2. Self-discipline is vital.  Learning to be good stewards of our time is a very big deal in this process.   Too much idle time will jeopardize our potential and make us vulnerable to trouble.  Too much busy-ness will sap our time and emotional reserves… leaving us depleted, making it difficult to move into something new.  We must develop and adopt appropriate disciplines that meet the demands of the scope of our territory!

3. Learn how to host and impart eternal value through our unique field of inspiration.  Our ‘field’ doesn’t need to be a stereotypical ‘ministry’… but our heart’s approach to our avocation, vocation, craft or ministry, needs to have the decidedly focused objective of impacting the Heavenly realm for eternity’s sake.  Father is watching to see if we’re gripped with making His business our business.

4. Amass all the email addresses or social media connections of all your friends and contacts… then be a GIVER extraordinaire!  Give away all your testimonies.  Tell your trophy stories… or family stories, etc.  Be an encourager!  Make eternal deposits in their lives as frequently as you are able.  Let people know what God is doing in your life and around you, even if those things seem small.  Do not ask for money or even hint at it!   Be a giver!

Being a ‘giver’ must come from a heart that is consumed with desire to be ‘about our Father’s business.’  If being a giver isn’t an overflow from our heart, we’ll ‘burn out’ quickly.  In addition, being a giver will establish in the hearts of ‘our people’, that we are operating under Kingdom values and we’re worthy ground to sow into.  Their sowing into us may include; bringing their business to us, their time, their contributions, their prayer, their favor, etc.

5. Expect that moving into full time activation of our avocation, skill or ministry… and experiencing full provision… will be an incremental process.  Allow 2 to 10 years to reach our goal.  Expect that there may be times along our journey when poor finances may require us to supplement our growing faith with an extra temporary job for additional income.  This is not to be seen as a setback.  This is more likely a step to let other necessary factors catch up.  These factors may include: character, self-discipline, fullness of time, anointing, skill, people connections, circumstances, etc.   

Summary

After you’ve evaluated these matters and have several inarguable God-signs to validate His will, then you’re ready to take your first steps into the next phase.  Be sure to reevaluate your progress many times along the way to insure that you’re still ‘on course’.  Be patient, be consistent and develop your intimacy with Jesus so that your ‘hearing’ is at it’s peak and your heart is most empowered.  Happy adventures!
