Happy 67th Birthday Dr. Murdock…!

“The emptied life”
>> everything we have came from God

The God you know about is the God that becomes your message.

Expect a harvest.

Expect a miracle.

You are one person away from tomorrow.

The future starts with a seed.

God does not schedule seasons by a calendar.
God schedules seasons by decisions.

What you’re willing to walk away from
determines what God will bring to you.

Presence is the greatest seed you can sow.

Presence is all of you: your voice, your mind,
your money, your thoughts, your energy, your inspiration.

And when you do not see that seed grow, you remove yourself.

You enter your seed into the soil that shows honor.

God will talk to you in the places that you obey Him.

Again:

notes

What you’re willing to walk away from
determines what God’ll bring to you.

Remember the $200 Stein’s clothes money that
Dr. Murdock, when he was in his early 20’s, sowed
into David George’s ministry when God told him to.

One week later, all the way up until now [for about
45 years!]: people have bought Dr. Murdock clothes,
all over the world.

What are you willing to walk away from in
order to advance the Kingdom of God?

What money have you been setting
aside for a new house, a new car…?

Samson was unwilling to walk away from Delilah,
and they plucked his eyes out ,and it eventually
cost him his life.

The widow of Zarephath walked away from her &
her son’s last meal, and God supernaturally fed her
and her son throughout the entire famine.

There’s no hope for a non-tither because
you won’t walk away from 10 cents to
satisfy the command of God.

Dr. Murdock asked, God why are
so many Christians broke?

God said, Because they steal from Me–
every paycheck–they steal from Me.

God only requested the 10% to
cure the potential for greed.

Family Harvest, Dr. Rob Thompson’s church in Chicago:

Dr. Murdock was sitting there listening to a man of God preach.

He said, “If you want a debt-free house, plant a seed equal to your
monthly mortgage on your house. Hold it in your left hand, slap it
3 times. Write on your check, ‘I want a debt-free house’. God will
give you a debt-free house in 12 months.”

Dr. Murdock figured, in his mind, There is no way God can give me
a debt-free house in 12 months. He owed thousands of dollars….

But he slapped it [that seed] 3 times and
in 8 months his house was debt-free.

What you’re willing to walk away from
determines what God will bring to you.

Dr. Murdock received a royalty check for
$5,000 when he was 36 years old, and was
watching tv, where Jim Bakker was talking
about sowing a $1,000 seed.

Dr. Murdock heard God say, I want you to plant a $1,000 seed.

He didn’t have a chair in his house.
He didn’t have a table. Sheets tacked
over his windows….

That day he planted his first $1,000 seed.

That was on a Wednesday. PTL network in North Carolina.

Sunday night a man walks up to him after church,
“God told me to give you a rare automobile. There’s
only 19 of them in the world. I have the first serial #
of the 19 cars.” And he gave Dr. Murdock the car.

Tuesday night, a man met him at lunch and said,
“God woke me up last night and said, ‘Bless Mike
Murdock’s ministry,’ ” and handed him a check for
$10,000.

The following Saturday he flew to New Orleans, Louisiana.

He preached at the First Assembly of God
church for Marvin Garmond, 1,300 pastors
were there that Sunday night.

Dr. Murdock had the $10,000 check in his pocket
from the man he’d had lunch with Tuesday.

And God said, “I want you to plant
that $10,000 that man gave you.”

Dr. Murdock could not believe it.

This was less than 12 days since that Wednesday when
he had just planted his first $1,000 seed.

And he thought, God, this is my harvest…!

Remember God–remember God? I gave that $1,000 seed,
and this is my harvest…!

And the Holy Spirit spoke clearly, “It may be 1-2 years before I give you
another $10,000 seed. Can you wait that long for the harvest?”

And Dr. Murdock gave the whole $10,000 Sunday night.

Wednesday Paul Crouch called him from TBN, and said,
“Mike, Jan and I have been talking about your ministry.
We will pay for you to take a tv program. We will air it
4 times a week on Trinity Broadcasting Network.”

Thursday, Jim Bakker called, “God spoke to Tammy and I to sponsor your
tv program on PTL. I will give you Thursday night, prime time,
9:30pm–free. For as long as you want it.”

Out of those free tv programs, Dr. Murdock has built his worldwide ministry,
with millions of dollars now having come through it.

From that $10,000 seed.

Dr. Murdock has never gone back to poverty since then.

If God won’t listen to money, tell me what He listens to.
