What You’re Willing To Walk Away From Determines What God Will Bring To You.

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.

– 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.”

5 Things That Can Change Your Life In A Day

Mon 04-08-13
Church By Phone

When God stirs you over a topic or
instruction, something that inspires
you, seize it.

Embrace, grab, take a hold of, pursue it.

When He reveals a special word to you,
a “rhema” word, a “now” word, an
understanding that’s greatly
magnified in your heart.

It’s my responsibility to find
inspiration in the world He created.

It’s nobody else’s responsibility
to inspire, or encourage me.

It’s my responsibility to inspire myself.

Dr. Murdock is heading out to
Nigeria tomorrow [today, April 9th]

The difference between
seasons is a conversation.

5 Things That Can Change Your Life Today

notes

1) A conversationZacchaeus had a
conversation with Jesus, and it
changed his life in a day.
– Don’t look a life as something to
endure, look at it as something to enter
>> you enter a zone, every morning,
every hour, every day
>> you can change your life in a
few seconds: you’ve just got to hate
where you are to enter where
you want to be
>> you’ll always adapt what you
can and what you will, you’ll
stay in a comfort zone
– a conversation can change
your life in a day
>> you may be required to
initiate the conversation
– When people say, “Don’t judge me”,
that’s a stupid thing to say
>> of course you judge each other
>> the Bible even says, “Judge yourself,”
so others won’t have to
>> judging simply means to assess
your conduct, effort, behavior
– take action, have initiative
– Zaccheus took initiative
– the woman with the issue of blood,
the blind man who cried out to Jesus–
they had initiative
– the first two letters of “God”,
“Gospel”, “good” = “Go”!
– A-S-K – He didn’t say “wait”,
He said, “Ask…”
>> Well, if you don’t ask,
what do you do, wait?
>> No! Seek…knock…!
>> Three levels of passion
– you may have to
initiate a conversation
– don’t ever owe a debt,
and act like you don’t
– if you owe someone money
& you’re out of work, you
just became their employee,
their “servant”
– What kind if conversation
should you initiate?
>> Apologies
>> Explanations
>> Confession
– To change your favor with God,
enter into conversation with Him
>> there’s a lot of ways to talk to God:
> Something you say, helping someone,
something you do, something you sow

Don’t you want to change your life?
Do you want to improve your life?
Do you want to excel?

Where should there be a conversation?

Conversation that demonstrates honor.

Do you know who you are talking to?
>> Upward, downward, or laterally?

The person who is the senior–
the senior person at any table
is authorized to guide the conversation.

Not the youngest. The 4 year-old does
not guide the conversation at the table.

There’s a place of authority.

If you have dishonored your wife,
there needs to be a conversation.

Initiate it.

I wait for very little.

Those who wait have very
little desire, little passion.

“Good things come to those
who wait,” is an imbecilic,
satanic ploy–have you
ever heard that?

“Waiting upon the Lord” has
nothing to do with delaying
activity, or decisions.

Most prayers are wasted
because God’s not waiting
for you to make a prayer,
He’s waiting for you to
make a decision.

Prayer is often used to delay
the potential bad decision
that we don’t want to make.

People say they’re “waiting on God”, when
He said, “Seek and you shall find”. He never
said, “wait and you shall find”.

You want to change your life in a day?

Start talking.

  • Talk upward to those you
    need to show honor to.
  • Talk downward to those
    who need to be trained by you.
  • Talk laterally to those who
    need to work with you.

You’re going to have to initiate
a conversation to create
changes in your life.

How long are you going to have
to wait at the Exxon station
before God puts gas in your car? 😉

There’s things you’ve gotta do, right?

Well, then do ’em.

Shut up and do ’em.

Shut up and do them.

Do what you’re supposed to do.

Do it, and do it with excellence.

Do it with all your heart.

Do it with all your might.

What conversation is
missing in a relationship?

What conversation have you
failed to have with your upline?
(with those in authority over
your life).

Are you waiting for invisible mentorship
to pierce the airwaves [earways?] of those
under your training?

Archbishop Marguerite Idahosa:
Her husband was known as Archbishop
Benson Idahosa.

Dr. Murdock had known
Benson Idahosa for 34 years.
He was a wonderful man of God.

Years ago, there was a public
outcry over an incident in Nigeria
where the Vice President of
Nigeria said, Nigeria is a
Muslim nation b/c everyone
in Nigeria knew that they were
a Christian nation.

Some of the leaders said, We’re
going to go pray about this, and
The Archbishop Benson Idahosa
said, We are not going to go
pray. That issue is too little for
God to handle. He put us in charge
of matters on the earth. We’re going
to take care of this.

And he got on the phone to the Vice
President of Nigeria and persuaded
him to publicly apologize and recant
his statement.

Have you ever heard someone say,
“There’s no problem too small for God” ?

What a stupid, idiotic, ridiculous statement.
You want God killing the roach in your room?
You want God putting cheese in your rat traps?

Dr. Murdock:
I like clear conversation.
I don’t like “slither”.
I’m very adversarial to deceivers.
I don’t permit life.
I decide it.
I don’t permit what will happen to me,
I decide what I want to happen in my life.
That’s God commandment to us.
He’s given us responsibility to our territory.

What is the territory God has
assigned for you to govern?

What is the turf that
requires your attentiveness?

And what are you doing about it?

You need to have some conversations
with the people under you.

You need to go back and say,
What did I instruct you to do?

– Remember: Ruth changed her life with
one conversation that made her “Mrs. Boaz”

The 2nd thing that can
change your life in a day…

2) One act of servanthood
– Look at Rebecca:
>> She changed her life when she
noticed an old man needed attention
>> She offered him water…
– Servanthood is a seed
– Servanthood is proof of character
– When servanthood becomes an
obsession with you, to host the
people around you, the “fragrance”
of a servant comes upon you until
the servant actually becomes the
master….
– Almost nobody grasps this, but:
>> The person who serves the best
becomes the authority in the
environment (meditate on that)
– Rebecca was an incredible woman,
and she looked at Eleazar, the Chief
liaison for Abraham (and Isaac) &
said, Can I also water your camels?
>> There’s money, there’s blessing
where those camels are going
– If you want to change your life in
a day, start serving

Who’s pain can you remove?

3) Confession
– I’m sorry
– It did for the thief hanging next to Jesus
– Don’t argue about how
right or wrong you are
– One confession can turn
chaos into promotion
– See: the publican vs the pharisee
– confession stops prosecution

4) Obedience to an instruction

[example] Part of Dr. Murdock’s testimony:

At 4:30pm on a Wednesday afternoon,
God gave him an instruction. Something
he had never done. God gave it to him
thru somebody else. It was about sowing
seed. God said, Do it by 10pm tonight.

In 24 hours [after following the instruction],
God had blessed him with more money than
he had ever had in his life.

By 72 hours, God had given him enough
money to buy a beautiful Cessna Citation
jet–a jet, cash.

When you ask God for a future,
He’ll give you an instruction.

An instruction is a bridge to the
dreams that you’re talking about.

The difference between where you are
and where you want to be is an instruction.

And the bridge is never long–it’s instant.

God doesn’t take you on a long bridge.

The prodigal son’s bridge was long because
he decided to take his life into the pigpen.

5) A seed

Use your seed for conversation.

– My seed is my “talker”.
>> My seed talks to God for me.

My seed is my ambassador
for me into my future.

My seed is the only voice
my future will obey.

My future whimpers for
instruction at the foot of my seed.

My seed rules my world.

I use my seed to talk to
God about what I need,
what I want, and what
I expect.

– see Pastor Howard Hogan (83 years old)
>> a confidant of Dr. Murdock’s

He told Pastor Hogan, I have lost money
in everything but God. I’ve lost over $30,000
in oil wells. I listened to a banker and lost
$250,000 in mutual funds in one year.

Warren Buffett said, “Never invest in something
that you don’t want to know a lot about.”

 

By the way, a “bullish” market is on its way up.
(think: the horns on a bull are pointing “up”)

A “bear” market is trending down.

 

There’s a $500,000 money market
in Heaven today for one listener
of Church By Phone.

Dr. Dave Martin :
– Have Dave Martin speak in your church, if you
want to have a financial breakthrough.
>> Dr. Dave Martin and his wife, Christina–after
an instruction from Dr. Murdock to plant a $500
seed (they had $503 to their name at the time)–
planted a $500 seed. 10 days later, Christina
was shopping at Wal-Mart & they just happened
to be filming a commercial that would use the
Wal-Mart security cameras. The Martins have
since received thousands and thousands of
dollars from the residual checks off of that
commercial–specifically, off of the $500
seed that they had planted after being
obedient to a man of God’s instruction.

[prayer]
Father, I ask you for 10 people to plant a $500 seed and to have the most electrifying revelation of seed time and harvest. When we ask you for a harvest, You ask us for a seed. When we ask you for a harvest, You give us an instruction. What You did for Christina–what you did for Dr. David Martin, because of one seed of obedience. Father, I ask You for 10 obedient seeds for the Kingdom of God.

Father, there are some listening right now–You have given them an instruction that they have not yet obeyed–Father, give them Holy Ghost courage to obey that instruction with expectation of a harvest. For the glory of God, I decree it. For the glory of God!

Father, while I am in Nigeria, give these 10 people 10 days of surprise conversations, and cause them to journal these surprise conversations. For the glory of God, it is done. Praise God!

Praise God!
