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
