Break Through- Prophetic Word for 2010?

Jan 12, 2010 at 17:07
Category: Prophetic

 

A word that I have been sent every year has been "break through" and 2010 is no exception-   big bold print, "2010, THE YEAR OF BREAK THROUGH".  For some reason it was a really popular word in 1982, 1992 and 2002.  Does speaking in rhyme mean it must be God?

In the same vein as talk of break through is the talk of wealth transfer from the wicked to the righteous.  Last year I received a newsletter where the first half was talking about the  success of their "wealth transfer conferences" and how they needed to take them around the world to see "the great end time wealth transfer to fund the great end time harvest"  and where the last half of the newsletter was begging for money because they could not pay their mortgage.  Why would anybody else in the world need that kind of success?   If what you are preaching does not work for you, why should I pay you to preach it to me?

What  words for the future are in the New Testament?  It might come as a shock to some but neither "break through"  nor  "wealth transfer" are New Testament phrases or concepts. What does come through the New Testament is that God is a farmer and that the Kingdom of God works according to farming principles.  Successful farming is the result of hard work and patience, not break through and farmers are not known for magically transferring their crops to someone else's barns!

"Behold the sower went forth to sow..." Matthew 13:3

"The Kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field..." Matthew 13:24

"The Kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field..."  Matthew 13:31

"The Kingdom of God is as if a man should  scatter seed on the ground and should sleep by night and rise by day and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how.  For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come."  Mark 4:26- 29

The Kingdom of God works according to natural processes of plowing, sowing, waiting and finally reaping. The mustard tree grows from the seed to become the large tree filling the garden.   There is no break through or supernatural wealth transfer.  There is only slow steady growth. God does not reward your lack of discipline and investment for the future by magically transferring what someone else has worked for to you!   Remember He wrote that one about not stealing?  Belief in break through or wealth transfer is like those who believe in the lottery because they have never disciplined themselves to save and invest for the future.  They can expect nothing from the future since they have always spent more than they had.  Their only hope for the future is the lottery!  

If you are making disciples ("the field is the world, the good seed are the sons of the kingdom..." Matthew 13:38), if you are sowing into sons and sowing sons,  you will see the multiplications of the generations of Jesus.  That comes out of investment in relationships and character!  That is simple, long term, low key, totally dependent upon God and intensely relational!

If you are investing in events, happenings, programs, performances, giftings and buildings you will emphasize break through and wealth.  These things are complicated, short term, hyped up, dependent upon our skills and destructive of relationships. 

The word about the future from Jesus is of a steadily increasing Kingdom! Kingdom fruit is the result of  long, slow obedience in one direction.

God is a farmer.

Our work with Him will be simple, long term, low key and relational.

May you see fruit from investments in years past.

May you have wisdom to invest now for the years ahead.

Have you wasted too many years waiting for your break through?

The best time to plant a tree is thirty years ago.

The next best time is today.

Every blessing and much wisdom in 2010

Why does it seem that fewer and fewer believers are setting aside their brains when they follow the Father? Thank you for the refreshing truth time and time again.

Jesus came to save sinners. I'm one. He saved me and I want to tell others what He's done for me so they can be saved too. How do I show them? By being a friend. By being an encourager. By taking the risk of exposing my real self and the heart of Jesus each of us carries within so I can build a relationship. I screw up but Jesus forgives and I can try again. Thanks Steve for your building and encouraging words straight from the heart of Jesus!

Believers who are prepared to stand firm on the Word of God, who seek to serve Him wholeheartedly rather than looking for manifestations in the flesh, and what God can do for us, need our prayerful support as they put their heads above the parapet. Steve and Marilyn are two such people. Thanks Steve, we bless you both with health, strength and an increased depth of relationship with Him in the name of Jesus.

Very Interesting that I found this site today. I have recently sat in church hearing that the church is going through some major financial times. We were asked to up our tithing by 5%. We needed $500 for a projector light bulb. In the same breath it was asked the a love offering be given to send our pastors on another much needed vacation. We collected over $2000.00 for them. I may have made a mistake but I gave nothing. I just felt like we just got told that we are responsible for this debt and they will go on vacation and we will figure it out and they will come home knowing we took care of the debt. NOT RIGHT! We give to 5 missions. Not all missions get their $100 monthly offering. That is sad. We pay for all our fun stuff and extra fluff and then missions gets what is left over if any. I have made an effort to put in the rest of the money needed so that the missions will get what is truely needed. We do hear alot about transfer of wealth. And we are going to get double portions and so on.
We are making a 5% extra a month but it will go to missions. I pray it is used for missions.
