Divine Favor and Provision by Todd Bentley

Divine Favor and Provision by Todd Bentley

Divine Favor and Provision by Todd Bentley

Recognizing the favor of God sometimes is key to your inheritance. The land you dwell in is not always the place of your favor. When you are in the place of your favor, you can be in your place of inheritance! "The LORD had said to Abram, 'Go from your country, your people and your father's household to the land I will show you'" (Genesis 12:1).
The favor of God is key in our lives to advancing and prosperity. The ministry, gifts, and anointing or talents can be recognized as a measure of grace and favor; however, favor is the key to success and fruitfulness. Much activity does not always mean favor. It is possible to have all the gifts and talents and not be in the favor of God. I have had seasons of favor in my life that just opened doors and increased me. They were not dependent on my abilities to preach or see someone healed. I have also had seasons where I moved in the most powerful demonstrations of power, but others were promoted around me with less gifting because they had favor. We need the favor increase and oil in our lives to work together with our other gifts and talents to really be promoted to the full places God has for us. The favor of God will move you and sustain you in positions that even great gifting and anointing cannot take you! Let us remember there can be seasons of favor and we can increase in favor with God and man! "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man" (Luke 2:52).
Recently, while on vacation, I had a supernatural encounter. I was praying for and needed a specific amount of financial provision-tens of thousands of dollars. I felt the Lord nudge me and said, "No, what you need to ask for is financial favor because when the favor is on your life, business, and/or ministry that will bring the automatic financial breakthrough you need."
Favor is different than the unconditional love of God. God doesn't love anyone any more or less. Favor isn't like the love of God. Favor can be conditional. Favor is not fair. Favor will keep you in places you could never get to on your own. There is a connection between seeking God and His presence and favor. Hebrews 11:6 says God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. There is a reward that comes to those who diligently seek Him.
Acts 4:35 talks about the great power the apostles proclaimed the resurrection of Jesus, which brought great grace and great provision. Great grace and great provision is linked to the witness of Jesus and the manifested favor was on them all. Nor was there anyone among the entire church that had any lack. Favor isn't about money amounts. The Lord was showing me how we can seek after Him for favor and the presence of God is in the midst of all of this.
Favor of God
If you start praying for the favor of God, it will release supernatural money. I needed a financial breakthrough/miracle. In Luke 2:52, Jesus increased in both wisdom and favor. If Jesus can increase in favor, who says we can't? The key to increasing favor is increasing favor with God.
Hebrews 11:6: says, "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him." There is something about seeking after and being committed to the presence of God. Moses was the one that said the glory is what I want.
Proverbs 16:15 is one of my favorite promises about the favor of God and how it comes. "In the light of the king's face is life, and his favor is like a cloud of the latter rain" (NKJV). The latter rain is the rain you need for the harvest of all things with barns that are overflowing.
There is something about seeking the face of God and standing in the light of His countenance. There are many examples in the Psalms about God shining on us.
In the encounter I had recently, I had a visitation from an angel. God said it is favor. Money and finances were going to be restored. Seek Him for favor and when favor comes, we will have financial provision.
Recently, I was praying for financial provision of $25,000. After this encounter, I began to seek His face and favor. I received a call from my office that a check had been received in the mail from someone who had never donated to our ministry before in the amount of $25,000!
On another recent occasion, I received a call from our office saying Todd, we need $20,000 today. I met a Jewish couple that gave me a ride and they handed me an envelope with $20,000 in it! They said, God told us to give you this amount.
We need to be a people of His presence, His face, and His glory. With great power they gave witness. Great power brings great grace and that brings favor.

The Lord Said, "The Church Is On The Edge Now of The Great Harvest"

Todd Bentley, The Elijah List

I had a powerful vision and encounter with the Lord recently during a church service at Queen City Church (QCC) in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Todd BentleyThe Vision

I saw a great harvest field. It was like a field I had never seen before and very large. There were many bundles (sheaves) of wheat already gathered. The wheat was white, ripe, and golden. I remember the sun shining down and how blue and clear the sky was. My heart yearned to be in this field. I said, "Lord, I'm a harvester. I've been in the harvest for many years. Why am I not in this field?"

We were standing on the edge of the field. I felt the Father (Lord of the harvest) say, "The Church is on the edge now of the great harvest at the end of the age" (see Matthew 13:24-43).

The Hammer

HammerIn the prophetic experience, the Lord gave me a hammer. I thought, "A hammer, Lord? Why not a sickle or a sword?"
The Holy Spirit spoke to me saying, "All you need is a fire and a hammer to break through the strongholds and penetrate the hearts of the religious minds and darkness of the people."

"Is not My word like a fire?" says the LORD, "and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?" Jeremiah 23:29
In the vision, the hammer was called "George Whitefield." He was part of the first Great Awakening, and many referred to him as the "field preacher." 

Sometimes crowds of 20,000 to 30,000 would gather, and he would preach the Gospel with a booming voice. No amplification system was needed. George Whitefield had charisma, and his voice, according to many accounts, could be heard for over five miles.

Edge of the greatest harvestI saw in the vision that the Lord was speaking about being on the "edge of the greatest harvest." We are now stepping into the fields. I also knew by the Spirit that some of the greatest revivals would literally be in open fields again. 

I believe the grace that was on Whitefield, Jonathan Edwards, and the first Great Awakening is now upon us in a new season of harvest and preaching.

We are being commissioned into a new season of harvest like we have never seen before. In this vision, we were stepping into the great harvest after many years of being trained and equipped. More than ever, we are entering into a reaping season. We are moving from just sowing and seed time to a harvest of all the seeds of promise.

Bob Jones' Passing

For many years, Bob Jones was a spiritual father in my life and ministry and also for countless others around the world. His death was on the day of love (Valentine's Day). On the night of his passing, there was a small earthquake in South Carolina.

CNN: "A 4.1 magnitude earthquake struck Friday night in west central South Carolina, the U.S. Geological Survey reported... The quake was centered 7 miles (12 kilometers) west-northwest of Edgefield..." One prophetic voice said that Bob Jones' death prophesied there is a "door standing open in Heaven" (Revelation 4:1). 

The door is now open to the great harvest. We are at the edge of the field (Edgefield).

Hollywood And The Bible

The Bible SeriesWe are entering into a new season of harvest, and God is giving many a fresh revelation of the Cross and true grace so we can be a part of this great movement. Even Hollywood is calling this year "The Year of The Bible."

I believe a large part in the coming great harvest is God anointing and using the arts and entertainment. Even reality TV shows and series are moving to more shows like Duck Dynasty and the History channel's The Bible Series

There is a new interest in America and the world for truth and The Bible. It's being preached in the Church, and it needs to be. It is also being preached through a revival media. I believe Hollywood plays a big part in spreading the message of the Cross.

Accelerated Harvest

I'm talking about accelerated breakthrough and harvest. A time of supernatural harvest of all things sown. I love the story of Peter and the supernatural harvest of fish after he toiled all night and caught nothing.

Think of the times in your life when it seemed like nothing was happening; you labored and worked so hard for the Lord. Then one word from Jesus and you are reaping so much that immediately the nets are now breaking.

The Miraculous Draught of Fishes by James TissotAnd Simon answering said unto him, "Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at Thy word I will let down the net."

And when they had this done, they in-closed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. Luke 5:5-7 KJV

This was a harvest so great that Peter's breakthrough enabled others to step into his blessing. He had to signal for the other boats to help him. Could you imagine getting such a breakthrough that it would be enough to bless you and the rest of Body of Christ?

In Him,

I believe the timing and accuracy of this word is spot on. We truly are on the very edge of the greatest awaking the USA and the world will have ever seen!
The signs are everywhere.

What does that mean to you? Here's a quote by Todd from this Word:
Todd Bentley: "...I'm talking about accelerated breakthrough and harvest. A time of supernatural harvest of all things sown. I love the story of Peter and the supernatural harvest of fish after he toiled all night and caught nothing. Think of the times in your life when it seemed like nothing was happening; you labored and worked so hard for the Lord. Then one word from Jesus and you are reaping so much that immediately the nets are now breaking!"

The purpose of this word is to both inform you and encourage you to not only hold on, but to PRESS ON into the calling you have in Christ for the Gospel of the Kingdom. This is an "all hands on deck" time and season in the Body of Christ!
