"Sowing Seeds for a Charismatic Reformation"
Dear Financial Partner,
Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop.
And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.
. . . he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.
Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous.
--II Corinthians 9:6,8,10,11. NLT.
Please notice that Paul did not promise only "spiritual blessings" in Heaven in return for the offerings believers sowed into his ministry. The Holy Spirit said that God would "provide and increase your resources." I follow Paul's example. With every offering, large or small, that is given into this ministry, I continuously believe for God to multiply the seed that has been sown, to bless the giver, and to increase their resources.
One of the most outstanding testimonies in which someone was blessed in response to giving to this ministry involves a man who donated many hours of labor to this ministry in the area of computer programming and website construction. When he concluded the labors he had donated to this ministry, I told him that I would believe for God to bless him in return for his giving, and to do so in such a supernatural and substantial way that he would know that it was the work of God. Some time later, he was giving a lecture at a conference. The CEO of one of Japan's largest electronic firms was in the audience. The CEO approached this man, introduced himself, and invited him to come to Japan to train and help his software engineers overcome obstacles in a project that had stalled. The man was flown first-class to Japan. They put him up in a hotel that was the equivalent of a palace. He helped the computer engineers to complete their project. He was paid a large enough sum of money that he was able to come back to the USA in a few days, buy a piece of land, expand his own business, and set his two sons up in financial projects too. God multiplied his seed sown. He told me later that he was certain this invitation to come to Japan came as a blessing God gave in return for sowing so much of his time and expertise into our ministry.
God described offerings as seeds that He can grow and that can produce a blessing in return to the giver that will "increase your resources." Clearly, not everyone who gives into this ministry will be hired by the CEO of a Japanese electronics firm. Most people do not have the skills that will be needed by the CEO of a major international corporation. However, God can do something equivalent in your life. He can bring you a raise or a promotion, an exceptional deal on buying a house, car, or in purchasing some other large purchase. He can show you how to bring in extra money. Jesus said, "Nothing is impossible with God." And, "All things are possible to him that believeth."
So, I want you to know that I take seriously and I appreciate every gift and financial seed that is sown into this ministry.
When you sow your financial seed into this ministry today, sowing generously based on whatever your budget and resources allow, I will begin immediately to believe for God to multiply your seed and bless you in such a supernatural and substantial way that you will know that it is the work of God. Your gift will be used in this ministry in various ways to bring the knowledge of the deep things of the Holy Spirit to multitudes around the world.
