Feeling FIRST comes from faith

Rebekah experienced a prophetic demonstration in the birthing room with Jacob’s catching of Esau’s heel. It was something the father probably didn’t see. At that time, men were not involved in the birthing process the way they are now. In a way, then, it was done in secret.

Rebekah was the only one who knew. But that which is done in secret, God brings out into the open. Those prophetic words we receive are demonstrations of things that are going to happen to us and for us if we just catch the feeling of that thing and hold on.

Rebekah had to hold onto that feeling from the day Jacob was born until the day he

matured. The feeling had to grow in Jacob, even if he was making excuses about why he

shouldn’t take Esau’s place. He was ready to get the venison, but his excuse, born of fear, was, I don’t feel like him. I’m a smooth man. Some of you know who and what you are supposed to be, but you’ve never had the guts to feel “I AM.”

 

What do you feel you are supposed to be? All your life you know what this is. You had this feeling growing up. You may have neglected, rejected, or deserted this feeling because life just tried to beat this feeling out of you.

 

Rebekah had to hold on to the feeling for a long time before it came to a fruition. In the same way, God is doing His part to keep this feeling alive within you. Are you doing the same?

Or, are you the one who’s putting this feeling out? Remember what it is you feel you’ve always meant to be growing up. You don’t have to be ashamed if it is connected with wealth and prosperity, because let me tell you the truth, you were always meant to be wealthy and prosperous.

WRONG PERSON – RIGHT FEELING

Rebekah is preparing a new condition because she wants a new expression, or a new answer to an old problem. Some of you have old problems that need a new answer. The old answer in Rebekah’s situation would have been, “Esau, you are the first born, so you are to take on the lineage.” Rebekah knew the promise of God because she had received a  prophecy while the twin boys were in her womb. The prophetic word was that the older, Esau, would serve the younger, Jacob. She carried that prophecy within her and hollered when it was about to come forth. She called to the younger son, asking him to let her dress him. What are you dressing me for? I’m dressing you for the blessing. You arrived in this world grabbing your brother’s heel because you knew something in you was supposed to be first. You’re the wrong person, but you have the right feeling.

 

Some of you have been the wrong person. You might have been hired in a company  where people thought your skin was too dark for you to advance. When you walked into a particular room, maybe your hair was nappy, and maybe they said, “You’re too nappy to have this promoted position.” But you thought, “All right. I might be the wrong person, but I have the right feeling. Eventually, everyone in this office is going to catch up to the right feeling, and they’ll know who is supposed to be in charge.” You were the wrong person, but you had the right feeling, and now everyone is looking up to you.  Jacob was the wrong one according to Judaic law. If he and his father and brother had gone to court, the facts would have sent Jacob to prison for stealing. That’s why he said, “I would appear to be tricking him and would bring down a curse on myself rather than a blessing” (Genesis 27:12). But as I shared with you before, feeling is lord of facts.

Dress up for success. Will you wait until things fall into place before you’ll start feeling and acting prosperous? You say, “When I’m rich, I’ll give my tithes” or “When I have extra money, I’ll bless others.” Right. That’s why you’re not rich and that’s why you don’t have extra-money. It’s because you’re allowing the circumstance to dress you up, instead of the other way around.

Look at it as training. If you are faithful with the few, you’ll know how to handle many.

When you train yourself to operate like a wealthy person, then you have already prepared

yourself to be wealthy. Unless you are ready for a position, you are never promoted. In the workplace, most people are already doing the work of their supervisors, until the boss notices, and the boss says, “You know what, I’ll promote you, you’re doing supervisory tasks anyway.”

 

If you wait until you are promoted to do more, to give more, and to be more, then you’ll be waiting a long time.

What things can you do right now AS IF you already have your answered prayer?

THE COVERING

The hand and the neck are places where all the nerve endings of the body gather.

Rebekah psychologically covered every nerve ending of Jacob’s body, on some level. God saw to it that the son would first be filled with feeling. If Jacob didn’t have the covering on the neck, and if he weren’t feeling “I AM Esau” in his deepest self, the father would not have mistaken Jacob for Esau when he touched him. He would have sensed Jacob’s hesitation, and he would have withheld the blessing. When we are filled with the feeling, God corresponds. It is as if God comes in with the yea and the amen to that which we set in motion.

 

God is teaching us something. He wants us to acknowledge Him as the Source of  everything, but He is also teaching us to move and to be masters of both our faith and destiny. He wants you to be the one to step into that open door. Why?

 

It’s the choices you make that make up who you are. It’s the choices you take that make you more like Jesus. It’s the choices you make that reveal who you really are in your heart of hearts. Don’t be lazy and just wait on God. God wants you to understand who you are, and He wants you to move according to your divine nature. God wants you to choose and to create the destiny He has already prepared for you. God just wants you to finally choose it over the ways of the world.

Get Dressed for the Blessing

And his mother said unto him, Upon me be thy curse, my son: only obey

my voice, and go fetch me them. And he went, and fetched, and brought

them to his mother: and his mother made savoury meat, such as his father

loved. And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her elder son Esau, which

were with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son:

(Genesis 27:13-15).

 

Rebekah is divine intuition dressing her son for the blessing. Some of you are getting dressed for the blessing, and you don’t even know it. You might already be fully dressed for the blessing if you would stop second-guessing your intuition. So, stop second guessing your intuition. There is a divine presence of God in you waiting to feed you everything you need to know.

 

And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the

smooth of his neck; and she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which

she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob (v.16).

 

You need to be intentional about the blessings you are ready to receive. When you are not preparing yourself for the blessing, it’s as if you’re saying, you’re not really serious about this desire. You are not really believing God for it. Or, you do not see yourself fit to receive it. Whatever your reason may be, God knows when you have prepared. God knows your heart. He knows your actions. He knows if you have made space for the blessing.

 

God is always ready. You are the one He’s been waiting for. You’re always the one He’s been waiting for. It’s wrong to say, “I’m waiting on God.” Don’t wait. He is ready. He is here. The blessing is ready, and it is in the spiritual realm. You are the one who needs to be here and ready to feel the blessing abound.

What must you do to be DRESSED TO RECEIVE?

 

Wealth as Spiritual Maturity

Aligning your prayer and your feeling is a whole new level of faith. When you take something so significant to another level, thumb-sucking baby Christians will have difficulty with it, because it does not line up with their pedagogy.

 

The wise will know when truth is spoken, and they’ll soon recognize that this new level isn’t a place where milk is served, or where people are given butter knives. Milk and bread are not on the main course tonight. As a matter of a fact, the only time the butter knife will appear is before the main course, and the only time milk will be offered is to add to coffee at the end of the meal.

 

Do you want to grow in your faith? Do you want your spirit to mature? Then you need to begin believing God for the bigger things. You may think you have been moving by faith, but it’s not really by faith unless you’re being audacious in claiming, not just in asking. It’s one thing to ask, but it’s another to be sure of what you have not seen.

 

How do you know you are a spiritually mature Christian? It’s when you begin to accept that God wants you to prosper and that you can actually make this happen. God is not a genie who will grant you wishes. No, He is not your servant. God is your Father, who in His wisdom and goodness, prepared everything you need in advance, even before you were born. You only need to access them through prayer and faith.

What is your wealth telling you about your level of spiritual maturity?

Be Ready to Receive

Reverend Ike was very philanthropic, but he gave in secret. He once told me a story about a school in Brooklyn that was about to go under due to financial problems. Reverend Ike sent four different people down to the school, each of them prepared to give $200,000.

When each of them tried to make the donation, the school refused the money. Finally, Reverend Ike visited the school, himself, and asked why they weren’t allowing him to help save it. He said, “I tried on four separate occasions, and you kept kicking the money away.”

 

Reverend Ike would often teach that people who refused money were, on some level, not ready for it, and that it was wrong to force it upon them. So, he never went back to the school to try again to give them money. Their refusal was a clear message that they were not prepared to handle it.

 

People refused money because of pride. Most of the time, people refuse the help of others because they felt others pitied them. They reject the help that is in front of them, maybe because they don’t trust the people extending the help. They may think, “What’s in it for you?” Or, maybe they don’t want to owe anyone anything. Or, they didn’t want to feel like they “need”. It’s their own issue of self-pity. They refuse the help of others, when really they’re refusing God’s help.

 

When God sends money your way, do not reject it. You need to realize that God cannot be placed in a box. You must be expectant to receive from God. He can use so many different people to bless you. Maybe it’s not the person you like the blessing to come from, but God is teaching you something important. God is teaching you to be humble enough to receive His help.

If You Cannot Feel It, It Cannot Exist

You only get the blessing you invite, and you only receive the answer to the question you can feel.

 

My father peradventure will feel me… (Genesis27:12a).

 

 

How much money do you feel like today? How much supply are you feeling right now? How much success are you feeling right now? Because you will only receive that which you feel.

 

What do you feel like?

 

…and I shall seem to him as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me,

and not a blessing (Genesis 27:12b).

 

Is there anything in you that’s telling you to stop feeling successful, stop feeling wealthy, or to stop feeling happy? You need to be able to identify any opposing voice. The emotions you have right now is the means by which you can create your future.

 

How do you set your goals? “In five years, I’ll have my own corner office.” Usually, it’s  like this. How about, “In five years, I’ll feel successful. I’ll feel the privilege of leading people from corner office. I’ll feel I’ve accomplished a lot through God’s grace, as I look outside this beautiful office window?” How does it feel? Set an emotional goal for your future, and see how your circumstances will change as a result.

Ask the Holy Spirit for a FEELING of what is to come.

Operate in the Feeling You Desire

One of the prophets in POME has a three-car garage, but seven vehicles. He used to go to the car lots to feel having more than his garages could fit. He would sit in cars his wallet and bank account couldn’t afford, but that his conscious would buy, anyway. Since then, his life has become exactly what he felt. To act against feelings is to act against ethos (the guiding belief or ideal that characterizes a community or nation). People can have it in their mind that something is right, and all of the calculations can say something is right, but they’ll pull back on a business deal, anyway, because they weren’t feeling it. And they will have made the right choice. They will have made the right choice if no one said they could or should do something, but they did it anyway because they felt it.

 

Many pastors preach against feelings. They preach strong and hard, but where are they? They’re broke.  God as the subconscious Self is a Feeler.  And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man and I am a smooth man (Genesis 27:11).

 

 

Reverend Ike would always say something that made me laugh every time. He would say, “Jacob was a smooth operator.” Jesus, my elder brother, has nails in his hands, and I do not. Jesus, my elder brother, has a piercing in his side. I do not. Jesus, my elder brother, is 2,000 years older than I, but I can tell you that the subconscious self, divine intuition, is dressing me just like Jesus every day so that I can feel like my elder brother.

 

God communicates through our emotions. Who do you think designed us to be emotional beings? Isn’t it God? God is an emotional God. We must recognize the feelings we have and ask God what to do with them. God wants to bless us. When we desire the blessing, Satan will feed us the lie that we’re being too much, we’re being to needy, we’re being discontented, or we’re being too greedy. In reality, we just feel that we need the Father. We need Him to bless us, just like a Father takes pleasure in blessing His child.

 

The issue comes when we reject these emotions. It’s like we’re rejecting the desires God placed in your hearts. Why did He place it there? Why does He want us to listen to His voice?  What do you want to feel today?

Circumstances are the Creatures of Men

Man Is Not a Creature of Circumstances

But circumstances are the creatures of men. Your roots will reach. Those roots will break rock to get down to the nutritional place they need to grow.

 

What do you want to receive? What do you need to do to “prime” this blessing into flowing into your life? It’s a biblical and spiritual truth. We have long believed the ways of the world, and so we play by the monetary system of the world. However, the truly rich and prosperous people discover this spiritual truth. They do not go with the flow of the world’s system. Instead, they step out of it and master the world — i.e. take dominion of the world — according to God’s command to humanity. Declare this right now, “God made me in His image and likeness. I am to have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

PRIME THE PUMP

It is in giving that we receive. We understand that, as Reverend Ike would say, “Life takes from the taker and gives to the giver.” Whatever it is you need, give some of it away.

 

That’s called “seeding.” It’s called “priming the pump.” When I used to visit South Carolina as a child, my maternal grandmother had a pump we kids would run up to and pump, but nothing would come out. But when we’d pour a little water into the pump, all of a sudden that water would start coming up out of the well. We had to prime it. It was almost like we had to tell the pump what it was we wanted.

 

 

Some of you need to “prime” your faith. The reason you don’t have any money coming to you is that you keep wishing for it without doing anything to help it manifest. You have to use what you have to get what you want.

How are you priming the pump?

Bless the Rich

A feast is made for laughter and wine maketh merry, but money answereth

all things. Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich

in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that

which hath wings shall tell the matter (Ecclesiastes 10:19-20).

One of the things Reverend Ike would admonish us for was cursing the rich. Then he would give us numerous illustrations of how we should respond to the fortune of others. For instance, he’d tell us to drive in a wealthy neighborhood and bless the rich. “You will not become rich until you learn to bless the rich,” he would say.

 

Most people think money is something given in exchange for work performed. If you think about money in such a limited way, your supply will be limited all your life. View money as what it is: the energy to bring about change.

 

The power of money is not tangible; it is invisible. Yet, it is powerful. It is not limited to the value of commodity it can purchase. Instead, the energy of money has the capacity to cause transformation, choices, and circumstances that may not have happened otherwise.

With the power of money, you have the power to choose, the heart of the one who has the money will determine whether the choice is for good or evil.

 

You must not run after money, because it’s when you allow it to master you. Instead, you must respect money and people with money. These people have the energy you need for your purposes. Be grateful that people are blessed. Be grateful that God’s work is here on earth because prosperity can only be sustained by the Lord. It’s His creation. As you learn to respect the power of money, you are able to know that it is something the Lord has already given for you to harness and to use for His glorious purposes.

Draw from the “No Fear” Well

Napoleon had no fear in battle because he believed a bullet that could kill him had not

been made. Even though he was small in size, he was not a dwarf in his mindset. Mark Twain said, “It is not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” Napoleon had no hesitation when it came to attempting a seeming impossibility because  he believed the heavens were on his side and that the very stars would swoop down to clear the obstacles from his path.

 

Who is in you? John tells us, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 Jn. 4:4). In an epistle, Paul said, “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Rom. 8:31). Napoleon was depending on his ego and self-trust, and he was able to accomplish greater feats than most people in his generation ever could.

 

If you are hinged on the goodness and faithfulness of God in your life, then what can’t you do? You are doing this for God’s greater glory. Are you worried about your mortgage? Are you fearful for not being able to provide for your children or your medical bills? Maybe you are frustrated because of the things you want to do but cannot do because of the lack of funds. Let me tell you this — it’s not your problem.  It is He who is in you who is able to accomplish God’s purposes for your life.
