If You Were My Daughter, Part 3

#1) Who Are You Willing To Learn From?

We can’t learn from someone we resent….

Who do I admire?

Who inspires me?

Who knows and values your authenticity–your difference?

Don’t waste your energy searching when someone close to you knows the answer.

Don’t be stupid.

There’s no one weaker than a non-reacher.

The more conversations you have, the more you’ll learn.

Inventory your present property.

What are 5 other options that’ll cost you nothing at all.

The purpose of waiting is to gather information.

Mentorship is learning from someone else’s pain.

Mentorship is learning without the wait.

When you ask enough questions you attract the right answers.

Pain is the proof of the wrong questions.

Pain is the proof of disorder.

Who are 10 people who can learn from?

What questions should I be asking them?

What qualities in your father do you admire?

What qualities do you wish your husband would have?

A man’s goals reveal what he values.

Where has your father failed?
Where has he succeeded?

What are you learning from your mother?

What is her advice that I’ve ignored?

In the Book of Proverbs, it deals a lot with listening.

The last words Jesus spoke, “Hear what the Spirit is saying…”

Listen to where your parents had failures.

What do they wish they’d done differently?

What do they wish they’d done differently with money?

There’s no persuasion like experience.

A day without regret is a day you’ve made no discoveries.

Every day you should feel stupid about something, because that is where you learned.

The greater your discovery, the deeper your pain.

Who are you not learning from that you should be learning from?

Don’t try to learn everything from one person.

The electric company doesn’t furnish me water.
The water company doesn’t furnish me a car.

Ask someone / your parents to tell you what mistakes do you think I’m making?

What topic do you want to master?

#2) Do You Really Believe in the Word of God?

Have you really settled the Bible in your heart?

Do you really believe Jesus is the Son of God?

Until you’re persuaded about the power,
and the presence of God, to make your life right–
everything that you’re battling can destroy you.

You must settle that–you’ve got to settle that.

Embrace the God of your parents until something greater affects you.

#3) The Ability To Say No

Men will desire you for different reasons, and when it’s all said and done:
If somebody is pursuing you, they want something.

They want a reaction, a result, a good thought, your wisdom, your favor.

Reaching is the seed for relationship, knowledge, change.

Why is this person calling me?

Even God, He wants something.

He wants me to choose His path , He wants to be chosen.

When a man pursues you, he wants something.

He may want admiration.

He may want confirmation of what he’s thinking.

Don’t let anybody kid you–you can’t “have it all”.

If God Himself cannot “have it all”, do you think you can?
No. Don’t be fooled into thinking you can “have it all”.

So you choose what brings you joy, pleasure.

Choose some small pleasures.

If you can’t buy a new house, go buy an ice cream cone.

And then make them routine–every day.

Make small pleasures your life, every day.

If you can’t get the new car, go spend $10 on a book.

[repeat this prayer]
Holy Spirit, I am a searcher for uncommon wisdom. Holy Spirit, I am Your protege. Reveal mentorship opportunities to me. I will not reject wisdom. I embrace wisdom.

Father, give me understanding of unspoken agendas. When people are pursuing me, help me to discern what they want from me. Heal my mind. Heal my memories. And do business through me on the earth.

In the matchless name of Jesus.

If You Were My Son…Learn to Listen

05-12-13
Church By Phone

The website: WisdomOnline.com

Wisdom is the ability to recognize difference.
Honor is the ability to reward difference.

Our success depends on our decisions.

Take small steps.
Pursue wise counsel.

Our biggest problem is listening.

All success begins with listening.

Dima Shakarian, a very wealthy businessman, who started
Full Gospel Businessmen International.

Richard, his son, was talking to Dr. Murdock, and he said,
“Daddy said never talk to someone until they’re ready to listen.”

Focus on the excellence of the moment.

Listen 100% to whoever is speaking to you.

Would you serve a God who didn’t listen to you?

Would you consider someone a friend who doesn’t listen to you?

In Rev, Jesus’s last words:
“Hear what the Spirit has to say to the Church.”

Listening is proof of honor.

There is no greater inspiration than a sincere listener.

Look at every face–find the face that invites you.

Remember Acts 8, when Philip spoke to the Ethiopian eunuch…?

And the treasurer for Candace, the
Queen of Ethiopia said,

God loves words so much
He called Himself the Word.

God governs the entire universe with His mouth.

One of the Top 6 topics in Proverbs:
Wealth, Work, Women, Wine, Wisdom, and
> Words

Proverbs Chs 2, 3, 4: “Son, hear what your father is saying…”

When someone speaks, you will hear tone
that shows attitude.

You will hear information that shows pain.

You will hear passion when someone speaks.

Conversation contains treasures.

Often, one conversation is enough to interpret the potential
of the relationship.

In every conversation there’s a listener and a talker.

Listening is the seed for knowledge.

And knowledge controls the changes that you can
create in your life.

Pain doesn’t create a change.

Pain creates a desire for a change.

Knowledge decides the change.

Listening is a learned art.

Silence is not proof that you’re listening.

Many people who are silent are thinking.

Thinking of their ideas, thinking of other people, thinking
of ways that they can stop the conversation with grace.

How they can ease away with poise….

Listening decides the longevity of relationships.

When only one person is willing to listen, the relationship will die.

A non-listener is a sad experience–someone unwilling to listen to your
pain, your thoughts.

There’s some marvelous advantages in listening.

#1) Others know more about something than you do
– and you will not find it out until you’re willing to hear

In conversation, you rarely get “the gold” in the introduction.
You will not find the secrets of the novel hidden in chapter 1.

You have to listen long enough for someone to express the core of their heart.

Listen to your boss close enough to learn how to please them.

Few men speak without expressing their desires.

Almost every person will express hidden, unseen desires.

We often think that silent people are not passionate people.
But usually they’re the most passionate.

The internal, invisible volcano of desire lies dormant
unreleased inside because no one cares enough to receive…

Listening is receiving.

Receiving the pain, advice, counsel, joy, their commentary about life, what’s important to them, what matters to them.

The Bible is a book about receiving.

The first thing God gave to Adam was an environment.
Then God wanted Adam to receive a zoo.
Then God wanted Adam to receive a wife.
It’s fascinating that God gave Adam something He had never even enjoyed before.

Listening is receiving.

Listening is not mere silence.

Listening is a reward system for
someone who’s heart burns for companionship.

Listening is a seed into another person’s life.

Listening is also a harvest to whoever’s speaking.

You’re their harvest, when you listen to what they’re going through.

Can anything more joyous happen than to find a harvest?

Are you a skilled listener?
Are you a reluctant listener?

Are you a contentious listener?
Do you play “devil’s advocate” all the time?

Do you listen to learn?
Do you listen to know?
Do you listen to discern?

Do you listen to find out how to pleasure someone?

If you’re not going to be a pleasurable experience, be no experience.

Do you listen, anxious for a place to cut in?
– Anxious for a place that they’ll stop…?

Until you master listening you’ll never master life.

Listening can increase your own skills.

When you listen to a presentation, you’ll think, “I can do that better.
I want to do that, but differently…”

Eliminate words that cut, sever, and slash.
Instead use words that mend, that heal.

Listening is a gift.
A rare gift to people you love, and care about.

Don’t read your text msgs while you’re
meeting/speaking w someone else.

Your presence is a major investment,
be the best experience you can for somebody.

Listening is the beginning of an appropriate reaction.

[aside] Don’t tell someone that you’ll “be praying for them” when they go to the doctor (or where ever) “next week”.
> pray for them now.

[to sow a seed into this ministry, call 866-874-8674 ]

Should you listen to everyone?
No, of course not.

Some people don’t even need a listener, they just want to talk.

Listen to people whose pain, whose needs matter to you.

Don’t listen to a rebel.

If you down, you’re gonna go down listening to the wrong person.

If you down, you’re gonna go down because you let the wrong voice enter into your bloodstream.

Don’t listen to those without your vision, without your goal[s].
Don’t listen to those who are not excited about your life.

Don’t listen to those who have no interest investing in you.

Don’t listen to someone who insists on killing every dream you share with them.

Don’t listen to someone who doesn’t
want to talk–they’re not ready to talk.
Don’t sit there and provoke them.

Listen to others when they need compassion,
when they need an answer, when they need a
friend, when they need counsel.

You should listen when you’re at a crossroads in
your life. When there’s chaos in your life. When
you’ve made a mistake.

When God has not given you an answer, listen to a prophet.

The Bible says that when you listen to a prophet, you’ll prosper.

Listen to authority.

ex: a policeman pulls you over: shut up, and do what he asks

Listen to the questions that are asked.

Listen when someone in authority is speaking to you.

When there’s authority in the room–listen.

Only a fool ignores the voice of authority.

Listen to those who love you enough to correct you.

Listen to those who love you enough to listen to your dreams and your goals and want to hear it.

Listen to those who can find weaknesses in your argument.

Listen to those who see potential problems in your life.

Listen to those who’ve been where you want to go.

Listen to those who are proven warriors.

Listen to those who listen to God.

Listen to your critic long enough to develop caution.

A critic is a gift.

They’re only a trap when you make their voice the voice of authority and control in your life.

A critic will make you careful, sensitive to accuracy.

A critic often exposes your weakness when a friend will cover it.

The fruit of criticism is a very real, worthy fruit.

It’s something that you must learn to receive.

Listen: is there any truth to this [criticism]?
What is the real message being given to me?

Listen even to an adversary, who has a path and an agenda,
so that you know the plan of your enemy.

Listen to your spiritual father.

Listen to a man who wants you to succeed.

Listen to a man who cares–he’ll help you to avoid pain.

Listen to those who are troubled by the losses in your life.

Listen to those who are excited when
you find what pleasures & excites you.

Listen to those who are excited about
your dreams, your goals, your plans.

Listen to more than one mentor.

In the diversity/multitude of counsel there is safety.

If you go down, it’ll be because you
refused to listen to wise counsel.

Every person who has failed, simply listened to a wrong voice.
Every person who has succeed simply listened to the right voice.

Listen to people who’ve got a track record of right decisions.

Listen to people whose decisions prove their success.

Listen for the unspoken invisible message.

Jay Don George, the founding Pastor of Calvary Temple in
Irving, TX

He and his wife Gwen are really, really good people.

He’s got a saying, “A word to the wise is enough.”

Listen to those who have a word from God for you.

Listen the most when you want to listen the least, when you feel like not listening at all.
Why?
The whole universe is sparked by a word.
It’s a word that sparks the fire.
One simple word.

Your future is hidden in conversations.

Conversation is intimacy.

Every time there’s intimacy, something is birthed, something is born.

2 are better than 1.

God said that.

You’ll make your worst mistakes when you refuse to listen.

Your most painful seasons will start when you stop listening.

Learn to listen to your conscience.

God has an inside referee calling the game.

The most powerful preacher in your life is your conscience.

Your conscience will arouse discomfort, frustration.

Your conscience is a joy-killer…and it saves your life.

Your conscience creates the boundaries, and boundaries create the
“Niagara Falls” of strength for power, change.

[closing prayer]
Father, I pray that we will study the art of listening. Listening for the sound of honor, listening for the tone and sound of rebellion. Listening for pain. Listening for the sound of problems because a problems is a path, a door, for the entry into prosperity. No one enters the “Palace of Prosperity” except through the “door of a problem”. When we listen to others we listen for an “entry”, like Joseph listened to the butler and the baker. Oh Father, I pray for my spiritual sons tonight, that they would be like a Boaz. That when a woman with a reputation of integrity, and caring, and compassion enters their world, they’ll listen to that woman.

I pray for every spiritual son to become like a David: that when an Abigail enters a conversation, he will listen to a woman of wisdom.
Father, the Proverbs 31 woman was an instructor, a teacher, a mentor, a businesswoman, a caretaker. I pray that every man listening to me will identify the wife that You have brought to him. It’s a wise man that listens to a wise woman. It’s a fool who ignores a wise woman.

Thank You, Father. Thank You, Father.

Let us be like the king, who looked at Esther and heard words that pierced his heart. He knew how to listen–that’s why he was a king.

Father, develop our skills to listen to You–to listen to Your voice, to listen to You in “the secret place”. And to listen to draw and absorb the messengers You’re sending to us.

Let is listen to those who have offended us when they seek forgiveness and restoration. Let us listen to people who want restoration. Let us listen to people who strive to compensate like a Zacchaeus when he had done wrong–he said, ‘I will repay 4 times…’.

Praise God, praise God.

[end prayer]

– Dr. Murdock flies out Friday to have a meeting with T.L. Lowry.
– and then on to Flint, Michigan at the great Baptist church there.

To sow into the Dr. Murdock’s ministry, call:

866-874-8674

[prayer for those sowing into the ministry, for your seed]:
Praise God, praise God…praise God…!
Father, our seed is an attorney that defends our future. Our seed is proof of gratitude, proof of trust, and I wrap expectation around this seed. I give this seed an assignment. You gave us 14 harvests, in Isaiah the 58th Chapter.

One of those will guide us into moments where we’re not without Your instructions. I ask that everyone would wrap their seeds with expectation as they plant to help us reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I pray that harvests from this seed will guide us in our real-estate transactions, our business transactions.

You said our “help would spring forth speedily”, and I come into agreement right now with my family, that health dominate their mind, their body. I curse every disease.

Family, lay your hand where you want God to lay His hand. We call it “point of contact” (in the words of Oral Roberts)…pain go! Pain go! Disease go! Go now! “By His stripes, we are healed…” I command order in your bone structure, in your muscles, your tendons….feet, be healed, ankles be healed! Knees be healed, lower-back, be healed. Pain go! You have no authority in [my] body. Shoulders be healed, neck be healed. Eyes, be healed. Ears, un-stop. Chest, be healed! There’s a healing river, family, there’s a healing river–move into it, move into it!

Just say, I receive the healing…I receive the healing…!

Say it–say it!

Faith is voice-activated.

You can’t hope your way into a miracle, you’ve gotta talk your way into a miracle.

Talk your way into a miracle,

I receive healing in my bloodstream.
I receive healing in my heart.
I receive healing in my chest.
Colon, be healed. Stomach, be healed!

I receive, I receive, I receive…!

In Jesus’s Name…for the glory of God.

So be it.

If You Were My Son…Don’t Leave God Out Of Your Day

Tues 05-07-13
[also re-aired Tues 05-14-13]
Church By Phone

“If You Were My Son”

– What a joy to be with you today.

– God will leave no man unrewarded.

Dr. Murdock has received many messages
over the years from people saying that he’s
been like a father to them.

20130509-000703.jpg

Bishop Matthew Ashimolowo introduced
several Pastors to Dr. Murdock and said,
“Do you realize that you’re like a father to them?”

>> see Prayer City in England

The first weekend of September, 2013 Dr. Murdock
will be speaking at the opening of Prayer City.

Dr. Murdock had asked the Lord to raise up sons and daughters from the ministry

Where will I invest next?

Has my investment of time,
energy, and money paid off?

– Dr. Murdock spoke about this
last Sunday, in teaching on
“The 10 Most Important Words
To A Millionaire”, and one of the
10 most important was “investment“.

We’re walking currency.

Our time, energies, discoveries, knowledge, and information is investment.

notes

If You Were My Son…

The Bible is full of information about fathers and sons.

Abraham grew weary of waiting for
Isaac, his son of promise.

Sarah & Abraham doubted
whether or not Sarah could conceive
and so she thought perhaps her
concubine would be who God used
to bring about the child.

And with Hagar, he had his
“son of doubt”, his “son of
unbelief”, Ishmael.

We see Abraham’s affection for his
son Isaac, after God does grant him
and Sarah a son.

And then, whether we understand it
or not, we can read where God asks
Abraham to sacrifice Isaac.

It doesn’t matter if we understand why God asks Abraham to do this, but He does.

The proof of the Bible [isn’t in our understanding
of it, but it] is in the change it creates in us.

When Paul wrote to Timothy, Titus,
Philemon–he was continually
referencing from the perspective of
a father to his sons.

We see this with David, who never
had the affection for Solomon that he
had for Absalom–and the Bible doesn’t
explicitly say why that is.

Throughout the Bible we see
the father-son relationship.

Jesus even goes so far to say, “My Father and I are one.”

Dr. Murdock:

“If you were my son, this is
the counsel I would give you…”

#1 – Never, ever leave God out of the equation.

> Don’t leave God out of your day, out of your life, [not even] for a moment.
> you can fail in a second
> be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s dealing with you
> it’s in His presence that your conscience will develop
> And it’s only in His presence that you will develop the power to overcome the adversarial environment of the earth
> you were born into an evil, deceptive, destructive world
> And it’s incredibly important that the wrong voices be exposed to you
> The only way to avoid the trap of the wrong voices is to develop an attentiveness to the voice of the Holy Spirit in your life.
> You will go through, son, a lot of doubts about Christianity.
> You will ponder the ways of the Hindus, the Buddhists, the naturalist, the humanist.
> You will see many contradictions in Christianity, and wonder, ‘If God is really in this person how can the act this way?’.
> You will see the weaknesses of strong people.

> The only thing that will stabilize your emotions is time alone with God–the One Who created you.

The proof of God is in the change of human nature:
– Drug addicts, alcoholics, have been set free in a moment

The miracles of God alone are enough to trust Him, to reach for Him:
– Healings, miraculous events
– not that satan doesn’t have an alternative, he certainly does
– we saw this when Moses went into the courts of Pharaoh in Egypt
– Jannes & Jambres threw their rods on the floor, and their rods became snakes also…
– the difference is, Moses’s snake swallowed up their snakes

Now, you will not understand many, many things.
But work, son, with what you do understand.

You understand your conscience:
when you do right you feel good,
when you do wrong, you feel depressed.

When you do the right thing, you feel empowered, strong.
When you do something wrong, you feel weak.

Don’t leave God out of your day, don’t leave God out of your life.

Don’t leave God out of your money, don’t leave God out of your decisions.

Every decision is going to bring increase or decrease.
Your decisions are going to bring joy or sorrow.
Your decisions are going to bring good things
in the future, or good things in the present.
Every decision has a future.

If you choose a woman, her voice will dominate your mind.

And the quality of the woman that you choose
will make all of the difference in your future.

You’ll want to make decisions in the presence of God.

Don’t leave God out of your equation.

It’s going to be really important, son, to treasure the favor of God.

I urge you to place great value on God enjoying you.

If God enjoys you, there’s nothing He won’t do for you.

I’m not talking about God loving you.

When I read in the Bible that He loved everybody, I didn’t feel quite so special.

But the Holy Spirit revealed to me the great difference
between who He loves and who He enjoys.

His love is an opportunity for us.

His joy becomes an opportunity for Him, authorizing Him to bless you.

You don’t have to do anything to get loved,
but you do have to do something to get blessed by God.

It’s not hard to believe in a God.

A book is the proof of an author.

A song is the proof of a composer.

A product is the proof of a creator.

Creation is proof that somebody birthed you into existence.

Whether you see Him or not, doesn’t matter.

Have you ever seen a thought?

Held a dream in your hand?

Have you ever packaged an emotion and handed it to someone?

Jesus was God in the flesh.

Don’t leave God out.

If you decide to leave God out of your life, there’s nobody who can rescue you.

>> see Jonathan Edwards “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”

Paul said, “…knowing the terror of the Lord, we persuade men…”

We persuade men to change, to repent.

We form opinions, judgements in our early childhood.

God has precise expectations of us.

Every relationship depends on the integrity, the honesty of both people.

God made it very clear that if we want success,
we’d follow the path of obedience.
But if we want failure, we can follow
the path of rebellion.

Start with achievable goals.

Set aside a secret place, a prayer room,
but name it. God is very into names.

Establish a routine.

Places matter.

Always enter singing.

The Holy Spirit loves singing.

Sing a new song.

Ps 100:1-3 – Come into His presence singing with thanksgiving.

Keep a prayer book.

Put pictures of the people that you’re praying for in there.

Write down words that the Holy Spirit gives to you.
He may give you words, He may give you a phrase.

Remember the 4-month period where Dr. Murdock spent 9am-1pm praying every day and gave him the 3 words, “Decisions decide wealth.” He never left his house, never received an offering. The Holy Spirit also gave Dr. Murdock 107 decisions to make. They were profound.

When God talks, doubt leaves.

One of the great rewards of entering God’s
presence is that He knows the value of time.

Where ever you invest your time
the most reveals what you love the most.

Time reveals the heart of a man.

When you come into the presence of God, in your secret place:
– keep a large-print, easy-to-read Bible open
– remove all obstacles to God
– don’t make reaching for God any harder
than our rebellious nature already makes it

Set a goal for praying 7-10 minutes.

Don’t try to make it “unforgettable”, just start it.

It’s ok to sleep in God’s presence.
In fact, there’s no better place to sleep.

You don’t have to think of something profound to say.
God is the most comfortable person to be around–
if you accept what He says about Himself in His Word.

Be authentic in God’s presence, be real.

If you’re upset, be upset. If you’re feeling good, let Him know.

Don’t try to be a salesman, or a lawyer, in His presence.

Discuss your feelings, discuss your fears, doubts, and ask questions.

The most powerful thing you’ll ever do is ask questions.

If you were my son…

I would say that getting the Bible, the Word, in your heart is important.

The Word is really seed. It grows.

It grows sensitivity to evil, to righteousness.

The most important benefit of Divine talk with
God–through His Word–is that His words grow
a desire to be right, to look right, to talk right.

When you leave your room of prayer, that world out there
is very anti-righteous–it’s a slick world…

I’m not going to tell you that nothing bad will happen to you…

The very first righteous man that the Bible talks about:
Abel was killed…

Bad things happen to righteous people

Find the right heroes:
– men who live right
– good men
– righteous men, not perfect men
– missionaries
– men who sought to please God

>> see the book by Elizabeth Elliot “Through Gates of Splendor”
>> see William Carey

Dr. Murdock’s mother bought him books about righteous men,
men to admire. People of God to look up to.

Be real careful about who you want to impress.

There’s evil men who have superb, genius minds, clever talking, even “fun”.

Not every evil man looks slick, evil, or coarse.

Not every evil man is an electric orator like Adolf Hitler,
who convinced an entire nation to kill 6 Million Jews.
To eradicate God’s people who Hitler called an “inferior
race”….

Choose men who believe and live according to the Bible.
Men with effort towards God, to model your life after.

You can alter your life quickly through decisions.

Change your focus, change your routine, change your goals.

Set your goals, with pictures, on walls
in front of you–to make you want to rise.

Get pictures of your goals and put them up on your walls.

[Remember Dr.Murdock telling us that our walls should
have pictures of our future, rather than pictures of our past…]

Treasure God’s favor.

Do you think we should trivialize the God of this universe’s favor towards me?

Should be minimize His goodness towards us?

Never treat God like He’s a 12 year-old who’s
never seen the world, or a 4 year-old tantrum-thrower.

Never think you can deceive Him.

He requires the holy tithe:
10% of *everything* that comes into your hand.
Everything–that’s birthday money too–He requires
the 10% that’s His.

God is worthy of absolute surrender.

If God took His hedge off of us, it wouldn’t be worth
living 10 seconds in this world.

Read Psalms 91 over and over again.

Read where He describes His
reward system, verses 3-15,
“Surely He shall…” until the end.

Psalms 91 (NKJV)
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, β€œHe is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. β€œBecause he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

[prayer]

Father, I pray for every man listening–who is
listening with the ears of son. I ask that you
let these words burn like a fire. I ask You
that radical decisions be birthed out of
these moments to please You.

Father, I stand against every error,
every seed of falsehood that was
planted in our minds about You be
eradicated, ripped out, torn out.
And that truth be placed on the
throne of our minds, and our hearts.

Father, we want to grow way past the “judgement”.
We want to get to the love levels, the peace levels
where we feel comfortable with You. And that
comes with our integrity towards You. You never
expected us to be perfect. You expected us to
mature and grow. You expected us to reach.

You’re not an unreasonable God. You’re not
an illogical God. We will never accept that
from a single human’s lips. Never. Never.

You’re a God of profound mercy, profound
understanding. You’re a God that’s impossible
to deceive and You will not lie to us. Awaken in
us a new passion for You…. Just like our elder
Brother. Lord, we don’t understand all of these
pictures in the Bible, where Jesus is both God
and He’s our elder Brother–we don’t
understand that, Father. We don’t understand that,
but we reach, we grow. We’re listeners, and we’ll ask
You questions and You’ll teach us. You will teach us.
You will teach us. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

Father, I pray that You make us masters as receivers.
Masters at receiving. Receiving our own difference,
our own authenticity. Receiving Your assignment for
our life. Receiving the difference in others. We receive
Your mercy with gratitude. We receive the opportunities–
golden opportunities–we receive golden opportunities
that You present in front of us. Lord, I ask You to
make us skilled at receiving correction.

Oh Father…Oh, Father! The rewards of receiving
correction are beyond our comprehension. Beyond
our understanding. Lord, I know that one of the
greatest difficulties in my life was receiving correction.
I ask You for every man listening to me right now.
Every man…oh, let him rise above that. Let him
exercise profound humility to receive quality
correction–not just criticism–and embrace it…!

For Your glory. Amen.

Praise God.

Praise God.

God is doing something profound right now.

God’s going to heal all the wounds your father left in you.

Your father was a human.

And until you accept the humanity in others,
you’re going to hate life, you’re going to hate people.

God’s got ways of keeping people connected to Him.

God’s not going to let anybody become more important than Him.

God’s not about to give you a wife who substitutes for Him.

God’s not about to give you a friend that’ll substitute for Him.

And none of God’s gifts will replace Him.

None of His gifts will come close to Him.

The gifts can’t replace the Giver.

Just like a factory.

Can’t you imagine how the factory is far
more powerful than the product that it produces?

So is the Creator.

This has been the first sharing on

If You Were My Son

It’s been we very full day.

An informative day.

Dr. Murdock says that he’s learning
faster than he’s ever learned in his lifetime.

Any seed that you plant in this ministry is important.

To plant the most generous seed that you can imagine, call:

866-874-8674

Dr. Murdock is planning on putting together
a library for his spiritual sons in the The Lord.

He’s going to talk to us about financial secrets.

Things that we should know or do.

He’s going to talk to us about organizing our life, our world.

He’s going to talk to us about reading.

Knowing how to manage time.

Dr. Murdock really believes that money is
more important than anyone has told us.

And our time is the first thing
that we need to learn how to manage.

You need to manage your time before
you learn to manage your money.

So he’s going to talk to us about
that just as if we were his son.

Every father wants a bank account for his son.

Every father wants to impart, deposit into his son.

It’s the son who can receive–he’s the rare son.

Big difference between Absolom and Solomon.

Big difference between John the Beloved and Judas.

There’s not a doubt in Dr. Murdock’s mind
that he can radically affect our lives for success.

And any ladies that are listening to Church By Phone,
stay with us because you’re going to learn how to
mentor your son. It’s worthy.

The phone number to sow into Dr. Mike Murdock’s ministry is

866-874-8674

There’s been 8 levels of sowing seed that
Dr. Murdock has seen radical blessings flow out of.

However, the most radical seed-sowing level
is the 9th level, that he’s spoken very little about.

If you want to experience the most wonderful waves of knowledge,
join Dr. Murdock in planting a $112 seed every Sunday.

If you’re unable to do that right now,
sow once a month, on the first Sunday
of every month.

Just sow with Psalms 112 in mind.

There’s no limit to obedience.

God will honor you where you meet Him.

He’ll honor you where you meet Him.

Father, thank You for our family.

[and Dr. Murdock added]:

“Father, if what I’m saying about
sowing and reaping is just for Mike
Murdock, and just for my personal
gain, then let there be a curse on my
ministry. May my tongue cleave to
the roof of my mouth…”

Unity And A Fresh Anointing Experienced in South Africa.

Wed 05-01-13

Dr. Murdock has just flown in to Durban, South Africa,
>> 10 Million people
>> about 400 miles from the 50 Million people city of
Johannesburg, South Africa
>> one hour flight

The church Dr. Murdock spoke at, where about 50 Pastors were in attendance, is headed by Bishop Basel Tryon
>> An very unusual, very remarkable man
>> He has very remarkable prophetic giftings
>> He has a strong “pull” on the prosperity message
>> And he has a hatred for the poverty of Africa
>> He (Bishop Tryon) talked about the wealth inherent to Africa, all of the gold and diamonds embedded in the land itself.
>> And the “grab everything and go” mentality–as opposed to the “sowing and reaping” mindset has led to poverty-stricken results for much of Africa.

Dr. Murdock came so close to canceling this last stop in Africa [for this trip], but didn’t realize the importance that they (South Africa) had placed on it.

He was just so homesick, and could hardly take it any more.

In all honesty, there’s a lot of discomfort travel
[especially when it’s work-related, and not leisure…!]

Dr. Murdock loves the hospitality he’s received, namely on this trip.

This area [Durban] is the where the Zulu tribe is,
and there’s 9 official languages in this region as well.

There was a remarkable anointing there:
Dr. Murdock says he’s never walked into an atmosphere with this same anointing, this palpable “glory”.

It was very…disciplined.

All of the people looked to the Bishop as a spiritual father.

They all referenced him as “Dad”.

Dr. Murdock has never heard singing, or seen worship, and dancing–not on that scale.

Not “sensual” dancing, but the most remarkable, graceful dancing.

Dr. Murdock wants to be a “professional” learner.

He tells everybody that’s what he does for a living:
“I’m a professional learner.” πŸ™‚

You really have to be open to things unlike yourself.

Discomfort shouldn’t be a lifestyle, but it should be a seed to sow.

To taste, to see, to access a new anointing.

A new way of doing things.
A new way of viewing things.

Billy Graham’s book about his real persuasion
that there were humans on other planets.

We have a need for “new”.

At this church in Durban, there was an unexplainable level of this unique, new anointing.

Dr. Murdock says he was not only comfortable with it, but he didn’t want to leave it.

It was a way of worship….

They had a choir, and then 30-40 young dancers…

They worshipped for a solid hour, hour and a half.

What arrested Dr. Murdock’s attention was the *unity*.

He’d never seen such unity in his lifetime.

All their eyes were closed.

They all smiled when they were rejoicing.

It was unlike anything he’d ever seen.

There are many anointing and movements of God.

Revelation 4:11 (KJV) – Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Everything was created for God’s pleasure.

God really likes change.

Right at the beginning of Genesis, God first “created”, and then the Holy Spirit’s self-description: “He moved…”

It would be horrible to live on the earth, and only taste water, or only taste an egg.

Yet, many times in the spirit world, we limit our experience to only what we’re familiar with.

I don’t want to be that limited at any level of my life.

Discomfort at first?

Yes, because you’re evaluating, you’re looking at the different kind of music.

But *joy* will tell you a lot, when it’s present.

Joy is an exclamation on what’s right & wrong.

God has arranged us to feel a heaviness in our spirit when something is wrong.

And to feel a freedom in our spirit when something is right.

Right and wrong produce very different emotions.

It was 3 of the most glorious days of Dr. Murdock’s life–in the realm of seeing God move in a different way.

Live From South Africa, Part 2

Church By Phone
re-aired 2013, April 20th to 23rd

What is the difference between
a wise man and a fool?
(It’s not a university).
It’s the willingness to listen.

A wise man will
listen to counsel.

In a multitude of counsel
there is safety.

Through diversity of counsel
your enemy is defeated.

Remember that a defeated
enemy guarantees your success.

Success is not guaranteed
through effort.

The failure of an enemy
guarantees your success.

An enemy is a force,
an odor, a distraction.

Your enemy is anything
that kills inspiration.

God didn’t quit talking
[after] Revelation 21.

God didn’t quit
creating after Day 6.

He [merely] rested
on Day 7, and
then continued the
creativity on Day 8.

He called Day 8
“the day of new”.

Remember that God
experiences ecstasy
through brand new.

Creativity is the
seed for pleasure.
Creativity is the
seed for inspiration.

Whoever is killing your
inspiration is your adversary.

Inspiration is unexpected
excitement about your future.

God has given Dr. Murdock
a word for his family, and he’s
giving it to us as quickly as God
gives it to him.

Dr. Murdock, “I don’t give you
everything God gives to me–
you’re not qualified. Just like
God gives you things I’m not
qualified to receive.”

But the Bible says, “If a man
will believe…”–not hear,
not “hearing a man of God”.
Hearing a man of God does
not change your life.
Believing a man of God
changes your life.

And God has
said so clearly:
If I believe a man
of God I will prosper.

Meaning: That the
absence of your
prosperity is proof of
rebellion to a man of God.

What words have I ignored?

* September the 18th,
>> 5 months from now:
3 corrupt men–3 corrupt
Nigerians–will have a
“Damascus Road”
experience like Saul of
Tarsus had, where God
turned a major enemy of
believers into a major
mentor of Christianity.

If you don’t count Hebrews,
Paul wrote 13 of the 27 Books
of the New Testament.

Wisdom Keys:

Dr. Murdock gives us these
Wisdom Keys as the Holy Spirit
“highlights” them in his heart.
They’re for us to hear, embrace,
implement, pursue Divine
confirmation, and to experience
an immediate reward from them.

[prayer language]

Yes I will…yes I will!
Father, I don’t require Your explanation for anything. I only require Your confirmation that it’s You. Thank You, precious Jesus. Thank You, precious Jesus. [x6…prayer language…]

Thank You, Father [x8-9]

[note to Tina to put this call on 2 CDs, and to mail the seed to anyone who plants a seed through the website, http://www.wisdomonline.com >> Button 8]

[Dr. Murdock notes it’s a little past 5am, Saturday
morning 04-20-13, in Johannesburg, South Africa…!]

Again, a word from the Lord:

* In 5 months–by Sept 18th, 2013–3 corrupt Nigerian decision-makers (with the influence like Saul of Tarsus) will have a “Damascus Road” experience. God will deal with them as swiftly, precisely, persuasively. These are men that affect the oil flows and the wealth of Nigeria. And the Nigerian economy will change. Beginning September the 18th, 2013. The Hand of the Lord is upon it. The intercession of the leadership.

The President of Nigeria, when Dr. Murdock was speaking there several months ago, flew in (accompanied by his security) from Abuja to a service held. His
Chief of Security is a major donor to this ministry and has written Dr. Murdock powerful words.

There is a leader listening now, that if you will embrace these words, and stop living in the suffocating “hut” of your life, and embrace the supernatural will start within 24 hours.

[prayer language]

Father, I decree a surprise conversation will set in motion every Divine destiny that You’ve planned for every member of this ministry’s family. I decree that every partner in this ministry who has planted a seed of obedience will swiftly see the groundbreaking of a new day–of a new day!

God will expose the arrogant “prodigal” in your world. The “prodigal” cannot stay in your home. The “prodigal” will attend “Pig University”since the voice of authority had no value to him.

I decree a 7-fold return on everything that satan has stolen from you. I decree–on my 67th birthday turnaround–that the wisdom of God will triple the favor in your life.

I decree that “open doors” will
be the first sign of fresh favor
from God.

I decree that the authority of God
will rule your life, and no man
will destroy you.

In the Name of Jesus.

I sanctify the uncommon seed
for an uncommon season.

[prayer language]

The power of discretion will
come upon you. Your mouth
will contain and keep the
secrets of God in you.

You’re not to disclose
Divine secrets to the
fools who refuse to listen
to Divine authority.

In the Name of Jesus,
I strip off of you every
chain of genealogy!–
I strip off of you every
chain of genealogy that
has suffocated the dreamer
in you.

It is true[x5] that you
have been in a prison.

It is true[x4] that Pharoah
as been disturbed and the
palace will send for you.

The palace will send for you.

Adapt[x4]–be ready–adapt,
adapt–to enter the palace.

I decree, like Mordecai
to Esther, “…for such a
time as this,” God has
prepared you for the
Kingdom of God.

[prayer language]

Father, I decree 120 seeds of $1,000 for the Timothy House–the mentorship birthplace for The Wisdom Center. I set myself in agreement for 120 uncommon seeds. I set myself in covenant for 120 uncommon seeds of $1,000 for the Timothy House–the mentorship birthplace of interns who will go around the earth. I set myself in agreement for the first 12 seeds–that the first 12 seeds will escalate into the position of authority. The first 12 seeds for $1,000 is separated for the next level of assignment. What takes a year, will take one month, what takes a month, will take one day. I set myself in agreement for inventiveness–“witty inventions”–I set myself in covenant for the most brilliant mind of creativity to come to the first 12 of the 120 who sow a $1,000 seed for the Timothy House. It is done, for Thy glory.

What has taken a year, will take one month. What has normally taken one month, will take one day. The acceleration of authority will happen swifter than you’ve even been prepared for.

The Word of the Lord, so be it.

Praise God.

Thank You, Father…thank You, Father…

All 12–every one of the first 12–will experience the most unbelievable, unexplainable, and indescribable acceleration of authority because of their obedience.

[Dr. Murdock makes a note to call the first 12 before he leaves South Africa]

Remember, just like the 500
whom Jesus instructed to
wait in the upper room:

God’s instructions are
always geographical–
He made places before
He made people.

Where you are matters
as much as what you are.
A wrong person can
enter the right place.
A right person can go
to the wrong place (Jonah).

120 people who God will speak to about sowing the $1,000 seed into the Timothy House for The Wisdom Center mentorship program.

The first 12 will receive a
special reward for their
swift obedience.

Destiny is not decided by calendar.

Destiny is determined by obedience,
and God will accelerate you.

To sow, call:
866–874-8674

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.

Dr. Murdock’s birthday is this Thursday, April the 18th

12pm, Texas/CST, 3am Nigeria

Live from Abuja, Nigeria
>> Abuja is the government city, the capital, of Nigeria

God has shifted the ministry completely.

God talks most to a man who listens the longest

Thurs – birthday, Abuja 7am to Lagos, 8:15am arrival in Lagos,
2 hour wait til 10:45am, to Johannesburg

Dr. Murdock, on the 5th or 6th of May, will be flying home

– what you don’t celebrate will exit your life
– what you stop celebrating will exit your life

– nothing’s easier than an exit

Jesus told the Disciples to exit any environment that has an absence of honor in it

20130418-002012.jpg

– Uyo, Nigeria – the only city in the world where
Dr. Murdock has felt the spirit of servanthood
on the entire city
>> they were willing servants

The covenant of the $58 seed
>> remember the woman in Uyo who sowed in dollars instead of nira
b/c she wanted to “reap a harvest in dollars, not in nira…”
– she and her entire family are coming to America, and God is going to use her singing gift to (further) bless her

– God won’t give you a miracle because you love Him
– God will only give you a miracle when you do something that documents your faith in Him

* Your experience with God becomes your message to men *

The only part of the
Bible that works for you
is the part that you believe.

Oral Roberts – “The greatest secret I’ve ever
learned is sowing my seed for a desired result.”
