Live from Johannesburg
[Please “reply” if you have
any pictures from Dr.
Murdock’s birthday &
I’ll put them up here!]
In a few days, back to Nigeria
Dr. Murdock, “I am on fire.”
“God has answered prayers…!”
A Surprise Conversation
A Surprise Harvest:
This month, April, has a great
anointing on it for the greatest
harvest of your lifetime.
God talks most to the
man who’ll listen the longest.
Your reaction to the words of God
decides is He’ll keep talking to you.
Obedience qualifies for you
for everything He’s ever promised.
The pastors in Nigeria have
mastered honor more than
any other nation on the earth.
When it comes to communicating
honor, value, gratitude, appreciation,
Nigeria has soared.
On his birthday, the people of
Nigeria sowed thousands of
dollars and just showed extreme
honor and appreciation for Dr. Murdock’s words and teaching.
There is something exciting
when people listen to you.
When someone you love doesn’t
love you back, now you Know how
God feels every day of His life.
But He didn’t stop the banquet,
He just got new participants.
Don’t invest another day,
don’t invest another dollar
into people that don’t believe
The greatest waves of
ministry are about to begin.
God has talked to Dr. Murdock,
and he listens to God because
God’s words matter to him.
Where you find favor, God is speaking.
“Disfavor” is a Divine voice
too, it’s saying, “Leave.”
Don’t invest another day.
Soil is too rich elsewhere.
Jesus put it this way,
“There’s no fish where you’re fishing.”
“You don’t have to go around
the world. Just go to the other
side of the boat.” 🙂
[sent from COZA…?]
Dr. Murdock: There was a
knock at my door, and in
walked a man who was
dressed like he represented
Do you have any idea the
break you got when God
became your boss?
That you got the biggest financial breakthrough you could ever imagine?
That when God decided to go into business with you, that failure became
an impossibility? Have you realized that yet…?
So, this man walks in with
the most spectacular briefcase.
[ Along with his father, Dr. Murdock
has a special affinity for briefcases…
to put it lightly 😉 ]
My father loves briefcases. Had he met
a briefcase early enough, him and my
mother would’ve never got married.
[ “Are you fasting,
brother Benjamin?”;-) ]
By the way, life doesn’t just happen. You make
life happen. You are life. The life of God is in you.
I consider the opposite of wisdom to be confusion.
I consider confusion to be the stench of the devil.
If I’m talking to you, and I sense confusion, I will
address it within 1/3rd of a second. I hate it.
So, in walks this young man with all of these different
colored briefcases. And I’m having trouble picking the
one I like the most. First I want the white one, and then
I like the tan one because I love leather. I just love it. I
love the touch, the feel, the look of leather. The suppleness
of leather, I love soft leather. The camel-skin leather. If you
ever go to Beirut, they have the best leather in the world there.
So I like the tan, leather briefcase. And then the crocodile skin
briefcase…! I decide to go with that one. I choose the most
expensive-looking briefcase because I would never spend that
kind of money on myself for my own birthday gift. I have that
Louisiana background–God has to treat me world-class because
I don’t know how to treat myself that well.
I was astounded. I was amazed. And then Dr. Murdock comes back
into his room later and asks Benjamin (who travels everywhere with
Dr. Murdock, and is a wonderful young man), “Benjamin, what are
all these briefcases doing in my room? I was just supposed to select
one.” So I called the pastor and said I’m bringing all of the other
briefcases back to the church when I come tonight. And the pastor
said, No, they’re all for you.
I couldn’t hardly speak. To get one is nice enough.
And then during the offering, the people took up
over $4,000 and put all of that money in another
People gave me pictures, pastors gave me offerings.
Dr. Murdock says, “It made the Wisdom Center look
like a dungeon. Like the pit.”
And then on my birthday, there were 75 pastors, the
choir was singing Mike Murdock songs…
[Pastor Tim Walker joins the call to reaffirm and to
elaborate on the wonderful, amazing event]:
…”I Love Sitting At Your Feet” & “Holy Spirit”. They
transformed an ordinary meeting/banquet room
into something spectacular. There were wonderfully
fragrant candles, with pearl necklaces on them.
[It just sounds like their overflow of honor
and servanthood spilled out into their expression
of gratitude for the man of God, Dr. Mike Murdock.
What an abundantly appropriate reward for a
birthday spent serving God!]
Just one after another, leaders and pastors got up
to share their gratitude. There was one bishop,
in particular, who came up and said thank you
to Dr. Murdock for not letting success stop him.
It was a “red-carpet” event, with pastors, leaders,
Generals, and just a “who’s-who” showing. There
was an extravagant buffet all along a wall, with a
banner hanging over it with Dr. Murdock’s picture.
And it said that Dr. Murdock was one of God’s
They had a video presentation–and not only that, but
there were plasma tvs at each table, where then everybody
was able to have a good seat to view the video presentation.
There was “movers and shakers”in the Kingdom of God
in attendance. There were several pastors, that Pastor Tim
overheard, that said, “Can you believe _________ just
Pastor Tim, who’s 39 years old (but has “60 years
of experience 😉 ), commented that he has never
seen that dimension of honor before anywhere.
The level of favor that has opened up, and is now
shining on Dr. Murdock’s life–the harvest of favor–
is at an amazing, astounding height.
And it’s an honor to be connected to this anointing.
What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you.
If you’re complaining, thinking, Wait a minute. I want this favor!
No one’s buying my lunch…
Well, how many lunches, and how
many dinners are you buying for others?
Soil does matter.
You can’t just scatter your seed everywhere.
Some of us have been sowing like we’re sowing with a shotgun.
That doesn’t work, we have to have accuracy with our seed.
We sow with accuracy.
Give your seed an assignment.
Dr. Murdock really is a “mentor to the masses.”
Thank you, Church By Phone, for sending Dr. Murdock
around the world, and to Africa, to Nigeria.
Thank you for showing your gratitude, and for being
connected to this anointing. Thank you for being
connected to Dr. Murdock’s life.
You are a part of the results.
It wouldn’t hurt you to go back over your notes
from Church By Phone over the last 6-9 months.
And see what you may have missed
God saying, through Dr. Murdock, to you.
You can miss a moment. What a great tragedy
when you realize you’ve missed a moment.
I declare and decree:
You’re going to revisit lost moments.
And God, somehow, some way–because of wisdom,
because of insight, because of the spirit of revelation–
God is going to revisit you and allow you to revisit
And it could be the greatest harvest of your lifetime.
It could be a person, a business contact, someone, something–
-a missed opportunity–and you’re going to (be able to) revisit it.
God will restore what the cancor worm has destroyed.
But we have to move.
We have to declare it.
We have to catch the thief.
There’s things that we have to do.
God’s not going to do it all for us.
We have to activate the laws of God.
And say, “I’m going to get back the hijacked harvests!”
If you knew the harvests that had been stolen,the people
that’ve been trying to paint horrible pictures of you, it’d
blow your mind.
But listen family, you have more going for you than against you.
And you need to ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes
with fresh eyes of wisdom, to see what you’re not seeing–
to see what you’ve been missing. To hear what you’re not
Someone is always seeing what you’re not seeing.
And when you’re going through a season of disappointment,
the closest heart that you need to be connected to is the heart
Something else about disappointment:
You have to wait for your emotions to
heal before you make major decisions.
Don’t make any major decisions–wait.
God is going to heal someone’s emotions
on this Church By Phone.
And don’t quit before the next one comes.
Don’t try to rush what’s being born.
It takes 9 months for a baby to arrive.
Your connection can come through
“a friend of a friend…”.
God’ll put “dream team” people in your life,
in your path. But you need to recognize who
those people are.
God will use the disappointment to teach you, and
will bring you out. A great season of surprise
conversations will come.
Move forward when the next opportunity comes up.
[ Dr. Murdock rejoins the call]
Wow, God was on you–you [Pastor Tim] were
saying some very important keys.
Some words are doors, some words are keys.
Some words are windows. Some words are walls.
Some things stop you, some things start you.
Some things accelerate you.
6pm, 7pm, and 8pm–the team should go to the
phone trees and see if the phone trees [?] are there
to be emailed out.
[phone trees are for when Dr. Murdock
has something spectacular to share…?]
Dr. Murdock decided that he wanted well-dressed
people around him because “life’s too short for ugly.”
You don’t need to schedule in any extra ugly, it’ll show up.
Schedule in beauty.
God made beauty, satan made ugly.
Dr. Murdock saw a man in Nigeria dressed excellently
and remarked to brother Benjamin, That’s how I want
the people at the Wisdom Center dressed!
God is meticulous, and ceremonial.
Look at the universe.
Look at the stripe on the skunk!
The spectacular should be designed, not hoped for.
At the airport in Lagos, Nigeria:
They held the giant plane up for an hour (the pilot was a
partner of Dr. Murdock’s ministry), and people were
running up to him, “Would you sign my book?”. They
were stuffing money into his pockets, “I’ve got to sow
a seed…I’ve got to sow a seed…!”.
And when he got to the plane, he didn’t have his boarding pass,
brother Benjamin may’ve had his passport….
And the man on the plane asked him for his boarding pass, and Dr.
Murdock said, “I have no idea. I’ll find it later.” Now, he’d never even
been let on a plane before without his boarding pass…
And he went and took a seat in the rear, near the exit, where there
was some open seating. A flight attendant came up to him shortly
after that, “Are you Mike Murdock?” Yes… “I am so sorry…” and
they brought him up into first class….
He wasn’t there but for a moment when a man came up and knelt
beside him, “I’m a pastor, and I received an email from your sister
that today was your birthday,” and he pulled out three 100-dollar bills.
“Tell her, thank her, for telling me that today was your birthday.”….
Here comes the flight attendant, kneeling down, “Would you pray for
me? I know the power of your prayers…”…
Then the head pilot, Captain Samuel ______
“Sir, I want you to know first that I’m where I am
today because of the $58 seed….” ….
An excellent experience and lesson in honor from Nigeria…
