2011 - The Year of Transition and The Total Recovery of All!



Dear Partners and Friends,


From our Hearts to yours - HAPPY NEW YEAR!!


Monya and I are so very grateful for your partnership, prayers and support - 2010 will definitely be a year to remember! God has saved, healed and showed up in miraculous ways to the thousands this past year beyond all we could have asked, thought or even imagined! To “HIM” alone we give all the “PRAISE and GLORY!”


So now as we embark upon a brand new year and season – the question many ask is: “What is in store for us in 2011?” My response to those who ask is - “Get Ready!”


The meaning of the number 11 is:


The number for paradigm shifts. Eleven is a transitional number that signifies when power changes hands because it falls between “Ten” – the number of divine injunction and government, and “Twelve” – the number of the rule of God’s covenanted ones, particularly His Apostles. 1 Kings 6:38; 2 Kings 9:29; Jeremiah 1:3 and 39:2-3. See also Matthew 19:28; Revelation 21:12-14. (The Prophet’s Dictionary – Paula A. Price, PH.D.)


I come before you today, to speak prophetically to you what God is saying for this new year of 2011.


*PLEASE UNDERSTAND - I'm speaking prophetically as the Spirit is leading. There will be parts of this word that will NOT pertain to each individually, but as you read this word - "YOU" will know what God is confirming to you by the prompting of the Holy Spirit.


This year is a transitional year which will bring forth the power of God, Kingdom Prosperity and a Shifting of the Guard!


God will now release to those He can trust - “The Goods” to fulfill the mandated assignments that He has spoken upon your lives. This is a year of the “Divine Nature” of God, His Favor and Miraculous Works being manifested through His “Faithful” servants! This is a year of recovery, restoration and many supernatural “Unique – Happenings” of the spirit of God around the world!


In this “New Year” you will find yourself transitioning spiritually upwardly, as you operate in New Paradigms (Dimensions) in Him, as well as, moving and shifting into new territories physically. As some of you have already moved to new physical locations in 2010, you will now “Set-Up Camp” and conquer your territory God has given to you! However, some of you have felt God speak to you in this past season, to move and you have held back giving excuses on why you COULD NOT. You have even waited for a sign or a wonder to happen first, before stepping out in obedience to Him. You must act in obedience now, or your disobedience will forfeit the blessings God has for you in this new season.


You must have your spiritual senses in “High Gear” now, as we move into this New Year! The flesh MUST stay behind in 2010 - It CAN NOT COME WITH YOU INTO 2011. This Year of 2011 is the year to soar! Leave the "Dead weight and Baggage" behind you! This is the hour and beginning season of change into a transitional moment of forward progression and advancement with God!


What this means is this:


If you continue to stay in the same place spiritually (and for some of you even in regards to where you live), you will miss what God wants to do through and around you. For some, you have literally felt as if everything has dried up. This has been God testing your faith and preparing you for a miracle! For others, he has caused things to dry up around you because you are NOT in the region you are to be in and you have confused your destination with Destiny! He is causing everything to dry up to get your attention! He is saying, “LEAVE THIS PLACE!”


The “Brook” is/was only a seasonal destination – not for “LONG TERM!” The Brook Cherith has dried up and its time NOW, to move to Zerephath! It is there you will find purpose, provision and miracles! (1 Kings 17)


Please hear me – Do not get the two confused! Many will remain in their destination (at the dried up brook) and miss their destiny because they were NOT spiritually in tune enough to hear, see and sense the Holy Spirit moving you to the next “Destination” that will take you to Destiny!


This is a very strategic season and “YOU MUST BE OBEDIENT!”


I speak under the prophetic anointing - Your life “MUST SHIFT” with what HE is DOING and wanting "YOU" to do. This will be uncomfortable for some, causing your flesh to be challenged!


Why? Because some of you, have lived in that area or territory all your life and built your home there. The flesh will speak to you and say, “But you have built your life here - You can’t move now! You have your friends and family here - You can’t up and move now! Everything you have worked so hard for is here - You can’t leave now!”


You will have thoughts of, "Why would God wait to do this now?"


1. For some this will be a "WAKE UP CALL" to shift with the Spirit of God and move out of the comfort Zone, into the supernatural.

2. For others, it will be confirmation of what you know God has been speaking to you to do.

3. For others, this will be a second chance to be obedient in what HE already told you to do and you were disobedient to do it.


Please hear what God is saying concerning this new season!


You must obey the Spirit of God to move into your “New Dimension!” Whether it be a physical location or a spiritual mindset! You can not remain in the place you have been spiritually or physically, and expect to go “Upward” into the dimensions God has prepared for you. This also includes removing yourself from some associations that can NOT go with you into this New Dimension!


For some, this “New Season” will be another test of your faith and spirit to move beyond your flesh senses and begin to hear and obey!


It’s simple:


1. Pass the test and get promoted!

2. Fail the test and you will most definitely have to take it again!


For those that hear what the spirit of God is saying right now, you will understand exactly. Now is the moment to listen and hear God speak to you strategically in what He would have you to do. Be obedient now and PASS THE TEST!


2011 Is an exciting year of anticipating the promises of God manifesting right in front of our eyes! This will be a year of greatness and seeing the faithfulness of our God, but it is hinged on our steadfast faith and obedience to Him!


Our miracles we believe God for are “Hinged by Faith!” The key to receiving from the Lord evolves around this principle of obedience and giving! If you can grasp this and then act upon it, you will see the Hand of God move in your life in a way beyond anything you have ever seen before.


In closing…


Every miracle in the word of God that took place scripturally was “Hinged” by the “Act of Faith!” To see the manifestation of the desired “Need” fulfilled, there has to be a “MOVEMENT or ACT of FAITH” for an individual to receive it! Please remember, God is NOT moved by your need, He is MOVED by YOUR FAITH! What moves you, MOVES GOD toward you!


What are you saying Brett? As we move now into the first month of the New Year, we must be prepared to sow a bountiful Gift to the Lord for what we believe Him for in 2011. We must “See” the harvest we want and then sow toward it!


Becoming a “Visionary”…


Like a Farmer, you now must become the “Visionary” for the harvest you want to receive in the New Year! I have seen in my own life and ministry as God has shifted everything around me as I have stepped out in FAITH to sow “BIG” believing God for a harvest! I know you will begin to experience “NO MORE LACK” as you prepare your “Seed of Faith” for your harvest in this New Year!


Before a farmer plants seed in the many hundreds of acres of land, he will “SEE” the harvest that he wants to produce first! The farmer will calculate how much seed he needs to sow, in order to reap what he “SEES” ahead of time! You must be a visionary and “SEE” what you want and then “SOW” to get it! The seed you plant today by faith, combined with obedience to God, prayer, fasting, and the manifesting power of the Holy Spirit, will produce your harvest in great abundance! This is a prophetic and strategic moment (Timing) for sowing!


*2 Cor 9:10 (NKJV)

10. Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness….


Did you see it? What this means is this: whenever we sow seed, God comes behind us and sows more seed. So when it is time for the harvest, we are not just harvesting what we have sown, but also what God has sown as well. He brings such multiplication and increase to our sowing, that before our seed can hit the ground, we are reaping a harvest.


The “Importance of Faith” when you Plant “Seed”…

As I stated above, the seed is the beginning of the harvest. A farmer looks at his acres of land and makes a determination for what kind of Harvest he'll produce. How you ask? Again, it is determined by the amount of seed he buys ahead of time, in order to have the manifestation of what he has envisioned the harvest to become.

In other words, it is the vision and mindset of the individual that makes a determination by faith for what he or she believes will actually take place! By planting the seed into the hand of God for the harvest needed, God sees your faith exercised and then comes behind it with more seed!
WOW!! So when you get your harvest, you not only receive what you planted, but what God has come behind you and planted as well -According to your faith! Please look at the following scriptures:


*Heb 11:1-3 (NKJV)

1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. 3. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.


When you and I are hoping or believing for a desired need or harvest, we must do something that I like to call, "FAITHING" it. What this means is, “Faith” becomes an action word or verb. You must see those things that aren't manifested yet and "Faith" them. But in cooperation with Faith, there also must be action. In this case, we are sowing seed which in turn brings an “Action by Faith.”

*James 2:26 (KJV)

26. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also…

*Heb 11:6 (NKJV)

6. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.


*II Corinthians 9:5-7(NKJV)


5. …So I thought it necessary to urge the brethren that they would go on ahead to you and arrange before hand your previously promised bountiful gift, that the same might be ready as a bountiful gift, and not affected by covetousness. 6. But this I say: “He that soweth sparingly shall also reap sparingly and he that soweth bountifully shall also reap bountifully. 7. So Let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”


*Here is the KEY:


We must be prepared to give a bountiful gift to the giver (Jesus)! Never come before Him unprepared to give. The manner in which we give (sow) concerning our “Heart Condition” toward giving to Him, determines the blessings we receive!


Mind Set…


We have been developed and matured by God in this last season of our lives! In order to receive the fullness of God’s promises to us, our Faith must be stretched. Because of the stretching we have went through in the process of our last season, we have been positioned now to contain the harvest God has promised us in this new season. Now, there is more room to receive where there wasn’t before! However, we must also understand that our mindset must shift and the old thought-patterns must be removed, so that the "New Wine" (Blessings spiritually and in the natural) can be released.


Please understand that the way you think, is a very important key to your blessings being released. Your present mindset of expectancy and faith, combined with the help of the Holy Spirit, will give you all that God said was yours!


Remember the old thought pattern (your old mindset) can hinder you from experiencing the abundance of God in your life! Don’t go backward in your faith and thinking process -Advance forward from this moment!


*Amos 9:13 (NKJV)

13. "Behold, the days are coming," says the LORD, "When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And all the hills shall flow with it.


I believe that this could very well be the season we are walking in! The scripture suggests that as we sow, God is going to cause it to be accelerated and "Time" will be removed from the normal – "Seed, Time and Harvest" process. Any farmer understands this process. There is a time for sowing (Seed), then waiting for the seed to develop (Time), and then collecting it (Harvest).


But, God says in the days coming, His promised harvest will take place at the same time you sow. Could it be in this moment of time when souls and abundance will be reaped quicker than we can even speak the word, sow?

I believe that the season we are living in now could very well be what Amos 9:13 suggests and will bring such acceleration that seed time and harvest will be at the same time. Not only will you reap what you have sown, but God will also give seed to the sower and multiply their seed! Hallelujah!!


Remember your seed is the beginning, root and foundation of wealth, prosperity and health for you. You must act in faith and believe God in the "Act of Sowing". Remember Faith with out works is dead!


Some may ask – Why do seeds involve money?


Here is the reasoning behind it. The money you have has been produced by the “Best” that you have. It has taken your ability, your talent, thinking and labor to create it. You gave your best to create the money you possess. God sees this and wants your “Best” - So when seeds are mentioned, it is our “Best” that God wants and “Money” represents our “Best”. “Money” is our “Best” seed to God!


Today as you give this one time or monthly automatic donation (Seed) into the fertile soil of this ministry, declare over your seed the favor of God and the multiplication from the Kingdom, that God has promised to give to you according to His word!


I Declare over you now:


*Eph 3:20, 21 (NKJV)


Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, To Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.


Go to the link provided below and sow your 2011 “Faith Seed” today! Your God ordained promises are waiting to be released by the “Trigger of your Faith!”

If you have never done this before, then I challenge you to – “Prove God, NOW” and see the breakthrough happen that you are believing for! If you have sown in the past and understand this teaching –then for you, this is your moment to move into a “New Dimension of FAITH” as you “Faith Big” (sow) to see God manifest a Big harvest in your life!


If you have never done this before, then I challenge you to – “Prove God, NOW” and see the breakthrough happen that you are believing for! If you have sown in the past and understand this teaching –then for you, this is your moment to move into a “New Dimension of FAITH” as you “Faith Big” (sow) to see God manifest an "Unprecedented Harvest" in your life!


Thank you again for your prayers and support! As you sow into this ministry, you continue to help us take the saving and healing power of Jesus around the world. I am in agreement with you for your Unprecedented Harvest in 2011!

A Moment of Divine Timing

It’s truly an exciting day to be alive! God is still on the throne and knows exactly what each of us face on a daily basis, as well as, what is needed to achieve the “Destiny” He has established for each one of us! I want to encourage each one of you to stay focused on the assignment at hand and believe God today in all you do!

This is not the season to be: "Weary in well doing, for in DUE SEASON “YOU” shall REAP if you faint not! (Galatians 6:9 – Italics added)

No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn - This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me," declares the LORD. (Isaiah 54:17)

I know the thoughts I have toward you declares the Lord, thoughts of good and not for evil, a hope and a future!(Jeremiah 29:11)

For the month of October, we embarked upon "10/10/10" that will not come again until 2110 which is another 100 years from the moment we have entered into.

The Number “10” Numerical Meaning:

For the creator God’s Divine Law, Spiritual Significance of this number includes His eternal injunctions, statutes, commands and edicts. The law of the tithe is just such an injunction. It appears in the Old and New Testaments as the tithe at the same time as the standard of Abram’s law of Faith. Actually, in the chronology of events of his life beforehand, ten as the tithe is a pre-Christ institution and not a post redemption option. Ten is the number of God’s Divine Economy and the diverse elements of it. – Ten is also defined as a number of Responsibilities.(The Prophets Dictionary – Paula A. Price, PH.D.)

The Numerical meaning of "10" also brings us:

Law, Government, Order, Restoration and Testimony!

When looking at three “10’s” and then adding them – we come up with the number “30” - In history, the age of the priests before they could serve was “30.” The number “30" represents spiritual maturity. Jesus Himself began his ministry at that time as well.

The Number “30” Numerical Meaning is:

- To be Consecrated and Mature for ministry - The age for the Priests to begin ministry. (The Prophets Dictionary – Paula A. Price, PH.D.)

In scripture we see Jesus preached his first sermon at the age of 12, yet he had to wait until he was thirty years of age, before truly beginning his ministry! This excites me prophetically! As we have embarked upon a day of maturity – I believe it is of major spiritual significance! You and I have went through many seasons of testing, being proven and have arrived at a “DIVINE MOMENT” in our lives.

We will not see “10/10/10” again for 100 years – I believe in retrospect of this, the past is behind us and what is before us will exceed and overshadow the past! I believe you will use the wisdom you have gained from past experiences and with this maturity, so shall it be that God will now be able to do things in, through and around you in this “NOW” moment that you and I have never seen before!”

"I feel His Spirit upon me now as I tell you to begin to decree and declare what you are hoping and believing for in this NOW MOMENT – RIGHT NOW!”

“The one who has begun a good work in you will carry it on until it is completed!” (Philippians 1:6)

Please remember, when God speaks to you, it is a word of "Truth" and you can rely on it! What he has said, will come to pass in His Timing! Be encouraged today!

In looking at the season we are in with all around us, we can clearly see that God is speaking to us! He is suggesting that as the world and political powers change, (which causes shifting to take place in the world’s arena) so is the Kingdom of God bringing forth a manifested change from the spiritual to the natural realm!

In this hour of prophetic timing and shifting, we will see into the seasons to come, we as a people of God have never seen before! In this, we should be excited, because He alone has chosen us to be here for such a time as this! I believe this is “Our Time and Our Moment for Divine Greatness!”

The hour is before us to experience what we never have before! “Greater Glory and Greater Dimensions” of His Spirit are for us! I believe “His Prosperity and Increase” has been established for this new generation and the generations to come!

Hear my words as I tell you - We will embark (not many days and months from now) upon a shifting of the guard in many areas spiritually and prophetically! This will be a “New Season of Hope and Fulfillment” for the Kingdom as never experienced before in the earth realm! I speak this to you prophetically by the spirit – please embrace it and prepare yourselves now for a shifting to take place in your lives personally, locally and corporately around the world!

“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably beyond all we ask or imagine, be all glory forever” (Ephesians 3:20)

Blessings Always,
~Brett Watson

My Spiritual Heritage & Lineage


The Definition of Heritage (Her•it•age):

–noun

1. Something that comes or belongs to one by reason of birth; an inherited lot or portion: a national heritage of honor, pride, and courage.

2. Something reserved for one: the heritage of the righteous.


The Definition of Lineage (Lin•e•age):

–noun

1. Lineal descent from an ancestor; ancestry or extraction: to trace your lineage down ancestral lines.

2. The line of descendants of a particular ancestor; family; race.


As children of the "Most High" each one of us have been given a "Spiritual Legacy and Heritage" by God. We are covered by Him alone. However, in order to move into your assigned "LOT" (Destined Position) that God has ordained for your life, you must understand the spiritual lineage and heritage of anointing He has designed for you to draw from.


Your life has a destiny and purpose according to Jeremiah 29:11. Whatever the earthly position is that you are presently holding -Having a spiritual covering is very important for you to receive accountability, wisdom and insight for your Kingdom advancement. It is so very strategic for you to be positioned under the man and/or woman of God - He has aligned you with to learn and draw from -Not who others say you should follow!


There can be many mentors, but there is only one "TRUE" spiritual covering. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you whom you should be under following, learning from and serving diligently as unto the Lord. This is the "KEY" in your spiritual progression for yourself personally and for those whom you will touch for the Kingdom of God!


God is our covering! God’s plan from the very beginning was to cover us and He does everyday. However, He has elected men and women of spiritual insight on the earth to assist us in our “Destiny Pursuit.” A spiritual covering protects and assists us in our progression in life and ministry. Many say that God is their covering and that’s all they need. Yet, there are many today that float from place to place wondering why they can not seem to discover their identity in God, as well as, lack integrity and accountability by not having a spiritual covering.


The following are two examples of Covering as God established it:


1. The man and woman. God positioned Adam as a covering for Eve and Eve as a helpmate for Adam. For a couple married in Holy Matrimony, the husband is the spiritual head and priest of his home covering his wife and family. Yet the two of them will progress in anointing, power and wisdom as they draw from their spiritual covering over them.


2. Jesus is our covering, postioned as the head of the church.


Please Note: There are also different types of “Encounters” we read in God's word that clearly help us to identify how God positions and shifts us into our spiritually assigned lineage. Here are two examples:

1. In Acts 9, Saul of Tarsus (on his way to Damascus) had an encounter with God alone, where by God changed his name to Paul. The Apostle Paul wrote two thirds of the New Testament and became a “Spiritual Father and Covering” to those in his day. Still today we continue to learn from his teachings which were inspired from the Holy Spirit.


2. A “Life Changing, Suddenly Moment” through an elect man or woman of God where the anointing was imparted in a divinely orchestrated moment, changing that individuals future forever. In 1 Kings 19, Elijah was instructed by God to go and "ANOINT" Elisha, because he (Elisha) would succeed him (Elijah) as Prophet. Elijah became Elisha's Spiritual Covering, Mentor and Father. Elijah had been the one ordained by God to shift Elisha into the "Destined Lot of Purpose!" This event was a "Divine - Suddenly Moment" that changed Elisha's life forever!


Please note: In reference to the second example above -Where God uses an anointed man or woman to bring about a "LIFE CHANGING ENCOUNTER" in your life -You should prayerfully consider being positioned under them for spiritual growth and covering.


From Birth…


I was born into a rich heritage of ministers. However, it wasn’t until my grandmother gave her life to the Lord that the richness of God’s anointing was implemented into our family blood-line, spiritually speaking. The background of both of my grandparents before this life-changing moment took place was that of hard working people -yet unsaved, not having much at all to do with the church. The moment my grandmother had an encounter with the Lord and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior -the “Destiny of the Watson’s” was changed instantly.


Still today, it honestly blows my mind how my grandmother’s encounter with the Holy Spirit and decision to follow the Lord (raising her children and grandchildren up in the ways of the Lord), would shift all of us into our “Kingdom Assigned” positions even before all of us would know it personally! My grandparents have gone home to receive their reward from Jesus, but her eternal decision of many years ago, supercharged my heritage with richness in anointed ministry. I am a 3rd generation minister of the gospel.


From one little lady that had an encounter with Jesus –Generations were and will continue to be impacted. Today, all of my family including my younger brother and sister are involved in ministry. Our whole family including cousins, aunts and uncles are heavily involved in one aspect or another in the work of the Kingdom.


My Biological Parents & Spiritual Foundation – Bernie and Kathy Watson pastored many great churches and evangelized across the United States all the way up until my father's passing in 1990. My parents imparted into my life spiritually and naturally the Godly truths and structure to live by, as well as, establishing a solid foundation for me to build upon. My parents who operate(d) in healing, words of knowledge and prophecy, impacted my life from birth until present. My mother -Dr. Kathy Watson, still to this day imparts into my life, encourages me and covers our family in prayer on a daily basis. She is an international speaker, missionary to many nations and shares the love of Jesus to children all around the world.


My Spiritual Father – Pastor Benny Hinn who ministers to millions of people around the world, impacted my spiritual life. A supernatural encounter took place by the Holy Spirit that changed me forever! His obedience in fulfilling the Lord's divine assignment through television was the tool God used on a normal day in the spring of 1991. Then later that year in Israel, Pastor Benny imparted into me at the anointing service held at the Sea of Galilee. These series of events introduced me to the “Person of the Holy Spirit" and shifted me up into the "Spiritual Heritage and Lineage" (my chosen lot in ministry) of supernatural wonders, healing and divine glory. Pastor Benny Hinn’s spiritual mother was Kathryn Kuhlman, whose obedience and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit impacted his life and the lives of millions across the world. This rich line of healing ministry continues still today through the lives of those God has chosen to impart this lineage of anointing into.


Because of the encounter that took place in 1991 in that "Divine Moment" - Today, it is my responsibility as well, to continue imparting into the lives of people - Training, equipping and releasing a generation of radical men and women of God that will carry on the heritage of this precious, supernatural anointing oil.


When we stand before the Lord Jesus -He will ask us, “Did you continue the lineage of anointing that I positioned you into?” Our response should be a resounding, “Yes Master-We did it all for your Glory!”


I pray this short informative teaching and summary of my spiritual heritage will assist you in understanding the truths of God’s design for your life and the lives you touch for Jesus, from this day foreword.


God’s “Best” to you today and always,

~Brett Watson

The Value of "TRUE" Friends!

Friend [frend] :

–noun
1. A person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard.
2. A person who gives assistance; patron; supporter: friends of the Boston Symphony.
3. A person who is on good terms with another; a person who is not hostile: Who goes there? Friend or foe?
4. A member of the same nation, party, etc.
(Dictionary.com)


*John 2:24
But Jesus, on His part, was not entrusting Himself to them, for He knew all men...

Our Lord knew all men, their nature, dispositions, affections, designs, so as we do not know any man, not even ourselves. He knows his crafty enemies, and all their secret projects; his false friends, and their true characters. He knows who are truly his, knows their uprightness, and knows their weaknesses. We know what is done by men; Christ knows what is in them, he tries the heart.

(Review from the Matthew Henry Commentary)


Today, I have written this thought to assist you, so that you: "Don't cast your pearls before a swine" (Matthew 7:6) in your pursuit toward destiny! Generally, this scripture - “cast pearls before swine” is to share something of value with those who will not understand nor appreciate it.

Honestly, Jesus knew people too well. He loved them (Loves us), yet He didn't trust them because He knew their nature and intentions. That is why He didn't have many close friends. For a Leader, this is such Wisdom - Especially when carrying out such a strategic assignment for the Kingdom of God! Be careful who you "sow" your own vision, dreams and purpose into!

Too many people share way too much information with individuals they have no business sharing it with because of the need to be received and or validated by others. When we get down to the brass tax of it:

1. Most people don't have the capacity to deal with it and
2. You just can't trust many of them. Sad, but true!

When we wonder why we don't have more than the very few "TRUE" friends we count on one hand, it's because of the nature of people and the trust factor. So many people say one thing and do another. With this being said, It's so very difficult to have "TRUE" friends today.

Early on, 19 years ago when starting in ministry - I had a dear mentor, friend and man of God - Pastor Ron Stewart tell me, "Brett, you will have many acquaintances come and go in your lifetime, but you need to consider yourself blessed beyond measure if you can count your "TRUE" friends on one hand."

I look back to the very day he spoke that to me and find out that the statement he made was so correct and extremely accurate!

In this short thought, I pray this helps many of you! I know in my life personally (being very transparent here), it has been a very lonely road at times. Honestly, I would rather have a few "TRUE" friends, then to have many so called friends that don't share my vision, or even care about my well being, or victory. Time has a way of imparting valuable lessons and wisdom into us if we will receive it.

Can you imagine having the kind of friends that Moses had - standing with him holding up his arms relentlessly so that together they saw Victory? WOW!

Exodus 17:12 - ...Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold them up. So Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of Moses, holding up his hands. So his hands held steady until sunset...

In closing and reflection - "TRUE" friends are hard to come by - For those of us with a few "TRUE" friends, hold them dear to your heart for they will stand with you and assist you in the vision you have to complete - And please note: You are "Truly Blessed!"

Keys to Your Increase...

Friends,

I have written a short, but very powerful teaching below on "Giving" and the importance of "Timing!" I believe this teaching "Keys to Your Increase" will impact and transform your life forever! Allow the Holy Spirit to help you apply the following wisdom and teaching to your life from this moment forward as you sow seed into the Kingdom of God.

"As I have seen in my own life and ministry personally, God will shift everything around you as you sow and you will begin to experience “NO MORE LACK!”

Blessings to you Always, ~Brett Watson


A “Divine Moment”…

Whenever there is a “DIVINE MOMENT” in your life, you are connected to someone of “DIVINE FAVOR!” Jesus was connected to John the Baptist before He began to move into the fullness of His ministry on the earth.

Matthew 3:13-17 (New American Standard Bible)

(The Baptism of Jesus)

13. Then Jesus arrived from Galilee at the Jordan coming to John, to be baptized by him.

14. But John tried to prevent Him, saying, "I have need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?"

15. But Jesus answering said to him, "Permit it at this time; for in this way it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he permitted Him.

16. After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and He saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him,

17. and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased."

From that moment forward Jesus began to perform miracles, signs and wonders and it all came about because of obedience and a "Divine Moment" (which includes timing and connection).

Though Jesus was the son of God and carried the dimensions of the Kingdom with in and upon Him -He was showing us how important it is to be connected in a moment of timing so that something amazing can take place! “Divine Favor” upon a specific man in a “Divine Moment” had orchestrated an “Atomic Explosion” right then and there in the spirit dimension!

The man that Jesus connected with was “John the Baptist.” I believe your “Divine Moment” is right here before you as well!

Looking at Elijah and Elisha, in *1 Kings 19 & 2 Kings 2; we also see a “Divine Moment” of transfer that changed Elisha’s life forever! As the story goes on, Elisha asks for a double portion. Elisha was obedient and served Elijah faithfully.

-Here is the key: Elisha was connected to a man of “Divine Favor!” Elijah was a man who carried the “Anointing” and the “Favor of God!” Elisha “Rubbed” (Divine Connection) shoulders with Elijah and received what he had asked for! I believe you can too!

God connects us to men and women of “Favor and Anointing” so we can experience a shift into the very same “Divine Favor” in our own lives! This should never be taken for granted! There is a shift that happens whenever God connects you with someone who carries what you have asked God for.

It is in that moment of “Divine Connection”, where the anointing and favor on that individual’s life is then transferred upon your life! We will begin to see immediate results, when it is God ordained and we respond in obedience!

~The Key to experiencing the blessings and favor of God on your life -is your obedience. When God speaks, you must obey!

I have written this teaching about “Keys to Your Increase” because I believe you have just experienced a moment that God in His sovereign nature has brought about, so you too can experience a "Divine Moment" and "DIVINE FAVOR” in your life now for the shift He wants to bring to you!


Becoming a “Visionary”…

Before a farmer plants seed in the many hundreds of acres of land, he will “SEE” the harvest that he wants to produce first! The farmer will calculate how much seed he needs to sow, in order to reap what he “SEES” ahead of time! You must be a visionary and “SEE” what you want and then “SOW” to get it!

This seed you plant today by faith combined with obedience to God, prayer, fasting, and the manifesting power of the Holy Spirit, will produce your harvest in great abundance!

~This is a prophetic and strategic moment (Timing) for sowing!

*2 Cor 9:10 (NKJV)

10. Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness….


Did you see it? What this means is this: whenever we sow seed, God comes behind us and sows more seed. So when it is time for the harvest, we are not just harvesting what we have sown, but also what God has sown as well. He brings such multiplication and increase to our sowing, that before our seed can hit the ground, we are reaping a harvest.


The “Importance of Faith” when You Plant Your “Seed”…

As I stated above, the seed is the beginning of the harvest. A farmer looks at his acres of land and makes a determination for what kind of Harvest he'll produce. How you ask? Again, it is determined by the amount of seed he buys ahead of time, in order to have the manifestation of what he has envisioned the harvest to become.

In other words, it is the vision and mindset of the individual that makes a determination by faith for what he or she believes will actually take place! By planting the seed into the hand of God for the harvest needed, God sees your faith exercised and then comes behind it with more seed!

WOW!! So when you get your harvest, you not only receive what you planted, but what God has come behind you and planted as well -According to your faith! Look at the following scriptures:


*Heb 11:1-3 (NKJV)

1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

2. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.

3. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.


When you and I are hoping for something, we must "FAITH" it. Which means “Faith” becomes an action word or verb. You must see those things that aren't manifested yet and "Faith" them. But in cooperation with Faith, there also must be action. In this case, we are sowing seed (acting by faith).

*James 2:26 (KJV)

26. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also…

*Heb 11:6 (NKJV)

6. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.


*II Corinthians 9:6, 7(NKJV)

6. But this I say: “He that soweth sparingly shall also reap sparingly and he that soweth bountifully shall also reap bountifully.


7. So Let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”

~Another Key: The manner in which we give (sow), determines the blessings we receive!


Mind Set…

We have been developed and matured by God in this last season of our lives! In order to receive the fullness of God’s promises to us, our Faith must be stretched. Because of the stretching we have went through in the process of our last season, we have been positioned now to contain the harvest God has promised us in this new season. There is more room to receive now, where there wasn’t before! However, we must also understand that our mindset must shift and the old thought-patterns must be removed, so that the blessings of God spiritually and naturally can be released.

Please understand the way you think, is a very important key to your blessings being released. Your present mindset of expectancy and faith, combined with the help of the Holy Spirit, will give you all that God said was yours!

Remember the old thought pattern (your old mindset) can hinder you from experiencing the abundance of God in your life! Don’t go backward in your faith and thinking process -Advance forward from this moment!


*Amos 9:13 (NKJV)

13. "Behold, the days are coming," says the LORD, "When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And all the hills shall flow with it.


I believe that this could very well be the season we are walking in! The scripture suggests that as we sow, God is going to cause it to be accelerated and "Time" will be removed from the normal – "Seed, Time and Harvest" process.

Any farmer understands this process. There is a time for sowing (Seed), then waiting for the seed to develop (Time), and then collecting it (Harvest).

But, God says in the days coming, His promised harvest will take place at the same time you sow. Could it be in this moment of time when souls and abundance will be reaped quicker than we can even speak the word, sow?

I believe that the season we are living in now could very well be what Amos 9:13 suggests and will bring such acceleration that seed time and harvest will be at the same time. Not only will you reap what you have sown, but God will also give seed to the sower and multiply their seed! Hallelujah!!


In closing…

Remember your seed is the beginning, root and foundation of wealth, prosperity and health for you. You must act in faith and believe God in the "Act of Sowing." ~Remember Faith with out works is dead!

Some may ask – Why do seeds involve money? Here is the reasoning behind it. The money you have has been produced by the “Best” that you have. It has taken your ability, your talent, thinking and labor to create it. You gave your best to create the money you possess. God sees this and wants your “Best!”

So when seeds are mentioned, it is our “Best” that God wants and “Money” represents our “Best.”

“Money” is our “Best” seed to God!

I declare over you now: *Eph 3:20, 21 (NKJV)

20. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

21. To Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Today, ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you in regards to the amount of seed you should sow into the kingdom of God! God is moved by our faith in Him -The longer we wait to respond to God, the longer it will take for God to respond to us!

If you choose to sow into the fertile soil of this ministry today, declare over your seed the “Favor of God” and the “Multiplication from the Kingdom!” God has promised to give back to you -According to His word!

I'm believing with you for your Unprecedented Harvest,
