Convention Notes: #SWBC2014 Kenneth Copeland 07/05/14


These are my random notes from tonights final service at #SWBC2014.

1 John 5: Love Command
Mark 4:14: Satan comes to steal the Word. 
John 10:10 The Thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy (In that order!) 

If Satan can't steal the Word out of you, then he can't kill or destroy you either. The Word of God is first place and final authority and the ONLY priority you will ever have.

Despise: Does NOT mean to hate.
Despise: Means to think little of, or pay little attention to. 

If you are not getting up early enough to be in the Word before you eat, get ready, leave for the day... then you are despising the Word of God. 

Failure to love is a failure of the Word working in you.

If you have ever gone on a juice fast you'll know your body goes through astonishing changes fairly quickly. This is because of the simultaneous reduction in toxins going in, and increase of micro-nutrients going in.

A believers convention (or any concentrated time in the Word) is like a juice fast for the Spirit!

Mark 4: Persecution comes for the Word's sake. That Word is what Satan is after. If he can't stop it from sprouting he'll attempt to stop it from producing.

Like the grape plant I have out back. Lot's of big leaves, and the meager-est fruit I've ever seen. It's not fit to feed the dog with.

Hot Buttons:

Satan knows your buttons. He doesn't pull new tricks. He just keeps pushing the same buttons that have always worked on you. Until... you begin to choose different reactions, he'll keep pushing the same ones.

If discussions about not having enough for bills, or something broken needs to be replaced, can get you depressed instantly... then he'll keep finding new ways to push those "money worry" buttons.

In fact, money worry is a sign that you are already serving the wrong Master (Matthew 6-7).

In 2 Cor 12, Pauls thorn was a messenger of Satan. In the bible, thorns always equal worries. 
(Study that out)

The deceitfulness of riches, is the lie that money will solve your problem. If you have caught yourself saying that getting a hold of more money would be the solution to you situation, you are believing a lie. Just for example, if you need a car, God can bring you a car without giving you the money for one!


Once you figure out how to roll the care over onto God this should become your new favorite saying:

I can't tell you how much I DON'T CARE! Jesus is MY caretaker! 

Heb 13:12-15 - The Fruit of my lips = Thanksgiving

Gratefulness is the key that is missing for many people.

!!!!!*****Heavenly Mathematics*****!!!!!!


Heavens Mathematics are not based on numbers, they are based on obedience. The Lord said to Kenneth one time, "I have a million ways to make you a billionaire! ... And you can't think of three!"

You don't always need money to buy a car, God can bring you a car without money.


Thoughts about my future: The Plan

  • Be led to give
  • Be led to receive
  • Be totally unconcerned with how things will come, or where they'll come from. 

Grace - Forgiveness 


The first act of Grace it Forgiveness.
The first act of Forgiveness is Grace.


Matthew 6:24-34: Take No Thought Saying


You take thoughts by saying them. You possess things with your mind and mouth. You take pain by acknowledging it, either with words or sounds. Pain is VERY real. It's not just imaginary. However, the same functions of your brain that are used for higher thought, are used for processing pain. This is why when you are "put to sleep" you cannot feel pain, even though it is still happening. This is why some people who pass their pain threshold pass out. This is also why pain makes it hard to concentrate on much else.

You can use this same physiological make up in reverse. Instead of saying "Ow! Oh this hurts... oh this hurts..." (Taking pain by saying)

You can replace those thoughts/words with His Word. "OH! Thank you Jesus for healing!" Pull out some healing scriptures and start to say those out loud instead.

But if you wait until you stub your toe to start this it's not going to work real well for you. Go get yourself an aspirin while you work on it.

Think about the pill bottle. Someone you trust told you that pill would reduce or eliminate your pain. You believed them. You acted on it, and experienced some positive results. Then you've been convinced over many repeated uses over 20-30+ years that it works. You've developed faith in that pill to take your pain.

Switching to the Word while you are in pain is hard. You may want to go take that pill, but take it in Faith, then start meditating the Word of God. Only after you have spent time meditating the Word will you have had the chance to build up your Faith in that Word as strong, or stronger, than you had in that pill. You can come to the point where the pill doesn't cross your mind, the Word is the first place you go when pain attacks. But that will take time to develop.... and develop it you must if you are going to be successful in God's Kingdom.


Practice His Presence. 


You can't wait until you have the stubbed toe to start this meditation on the Word. Therefore, you should start to practice God's presence everywhere you go, all the time. Ask him when you should get up, go to bed, ask Him about your routine in the day/week/month/year... Be LED through your day. Be LED in the morning. Be LED at work about each decision.

Start by saying: "I am your to command and correct sir! I am grateful for __Fill in as many things as you can here___."

If you are in pain, and you do this, you'll find that this replaces your pain in time.


The Works of Jesus



The Works of Jesus are whatever the Father tells Him to do.

If you only ever did/said what the Father told you to do/say this would create:
  • Decreased pressure to perform.
  • Increased pressure to be still and listen. 
Look up "Be" scriptures in the Word. Ex

  • Light BE
  • BE made whole
  • Amen (So BE it)
  • BE it done unto me as you have said


Instead of calling it your confession list, call it you "It Is Written" list. Take scriptures down that you can read with your eyes, confess with your mouth, and meditate on in your heart.

Don't ever violate a leading of the Lord. Even if you are wrong, it's better to be wrong trying to obey God than be dead ignoring Him. He can fix something you did trying to obey Him. It's getting the people ignoring Him to start listening that He has trouble with.

NEVER say "Yeah But..." to the Word of God. 


Proverbs says: Do not let the Word depart from your eyes.

You can't eat the memory of a potato. You have to put the Word in your eyes daily if you want a strong spirit.


Faith is developed as a seed is. It starts off needing a little extra care and protection. But eventually it will produce if allowed the right atmosphere.

Fear = Love violated

If you have a hard time believing God, fear is present, and so is clouded thinking as a result.

Perfected Love casts out fear.

Romans 4

Faith = Confidence

Meditation = Increased capacity for faith

Josh 1:8: Joshua was about to lead a group of people to become Giant killers! Meditation was the key to his success!

Psalms 127: Sleep scripture

Awake to righteousness! Is a good morning scripture.

Take JOY by Faith!

It's a new season...

I just read a Facebook post from a friend/close acquaintance I know who was just laid off from a place I wanted to work at one time. It reminded me of my current season here...

I came to North Idaho with plans.... and they haven't worked out the way I intended. I'm not living where I thought I'd live, working where I thought I'd work, or doing the things I thought I'd be doing.

This season feels like a microcosm of my life... I'm not where I thought I'd be by now. I'm having trouble coming up with the motivation to do the things I maybe ought to be doing.

*Shhhh... Do you feel that? That wind gently blowing through the trees, down the hills, brushing your shoulders...

It's a new season! It's a fresh anointing.... it's coming your way.

The past doesn't matter. Not ten years ago, ten months ago, or ten minutes ago. God is always ready, ever ready, to do a new thing. He does best with participating people.

If you are feeling like I am, it…

*White Noise - Distortion - Grounded Cafe - Re-Write #3

***
Grounded Cafe
Through the window of the Grounded Cafe, Ash noticed two men dressed in all black duck behind a blue minivan. Ice ran down his spine. His right arm shot to the Glock 9mm at his side. Sucking a breath he took a second look—  They were gone. Black mist poured out from under the minivan and evaporated into the early morning air.

He shook his head, closed his eyes. Counting to ten, silently, Ash released the grip on his sidearm, which he now realized was a tape measure and not a Glock. Ash hadn’t had a right to carry a weapon since he left the service. He let his arm fall to his side. Reality settled back onto his shoulders.

A college age girl walked by just outside the window, head buried in her smartphone. She bumped into Chester, the town’s crazy old homeless man who was headed the other direction. She didn’t even notice. He gave her a dirty looked and kept walking the other way. She sat down at a table just outs…

Simply Grateful: It's more blessed to give than receive... So be humble and let someone give to you.

Receiving gifts is hard for me... 
Yesterday was orientation and today was my first day at a new job location. They prepared a gift bag full of fun treats and a hand-made card:


I mentioned Pokemon during the interview and they took note of it. Remembered it. Then used it to personalize my card.

Amazing! Stellar Service! Totally blown away.

Inside, though, part of me also took it for granted. Anytime I'm the center of attention I run from it as fast as I can. So I left shortly after and went back to my office to train on the computer.

The whole way back to the desk there was this inner voice saying:

"Aww... that's just what companies do for new hires... you're not that special. Don't let it get to your head..."

News Flash, ladies and gentlemen, that is false humility. It's actually serving to lessen the gift by a refusal to be simply grateful.

I can give and give and give and expect nothing in return, that's second nature to me; however, I have a hard t…

*These are my notes from church today using the YouVersion live app:

II Corinthians 4:5-16 NKJV For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus …

Change: It's harder than you thought and better than you imagined

I'm at the tail end of an end and the head of a beginning.

After 7 years in Nort Texas (Fort Worth), we moved. We spent the last few months getting the house ready to sell, selling the house, and moving. A week (03/19 - 03/24) was spent on the road and since then we lived in a hotel until we could find a place to live.

On Friday (03/31/17), we moved into our new house (rental). We're still unpacking, building storage shelves, figuring out to live with a basement for washer/dryer (odd).

We just found a store (EntertainmentMart) that sells games, Pokemon cards, and more. They allow the kids and adults to come play against each other live every Monday and Wed. So the kids are now adjusting.

There are things I already really enjoy about North Idaho... some of the transitions were easier than others.

Some things didn't go the way I wanted and some things went better. I just needed to learn to flow, slow down, breath, and listen... it's always about listening to the Holy Sp…

Credit Building Myths

So, I'm hearing a lot of people say things that are just not true, don't make sense, or are just plain bad advice, when it comes to building credit.

Credit building is not rocket science. 
It's true that the math formulas behind the scores are actually akin to rocket science math... But some of the basic things the average person needs to know are actually quite simple.

If you want to build credit without paying interest or creating debt read on, or just skip to the bottom to the conclusion. 
I'm sure you've seen this funny commercial:




I wrote a post previously about FICO and Lending Decisions, to tell you how the banks makes the decision to approve or decline your application.

Now I want to bring in the focus a little to some Credit Building basics. The score isn't the only factor used in lending decision, but it's a big one.

What is a Topos? A strategic position of opportunity and influence

What does Topos mean?Topos is a Greek word meaning: "Place, or Opportunity"
Properly:Any portion of space marked off, as it were, from surrounding, space Metaphorically: The condition or station held by one in any company or assemblyopportunity, power, occasion for actingA spot (general in space, but limited by occupancy; whereas chora is a large but participle locality). As used by me: Topos is a strategic position of opportunity and influence
Topos: Your Calling Everyone has a God given calling on this earth. There is something you were created and designed to do. What you are doing now may be "The Calling"; or, it may be the calling for this season of your life. Either way, you are either in your Topos, or you need to find it.

As you read the stories of biblical heros like Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, David, Nehemiah, Peter, and Paul... etc... you find that God put them in the right place to do the right thing at the right time.

They ended up in their Topos, …
