Thank You, Lord. Hallelujah! Heavenly Currency | Sermon | T.B. Joshua Merry Christmas in advance and Happy New Year! Hallelujah! Viewers at home, where can we go from His presence? We are waiting for a touch from Heaven. If you say, “Touch me Lord and let it be to me according to my faith”, will you be able to say that? Touch me and let it be to me according to my faith. Think about it; do you have faith? “Touch me and let it be to me according to my faith” because we use faith to put a demand. Faith is a Heavenly currency we use to purchase, to receive Heavenly blessings. Healing is a Heavenly blessing; deliverance is a Heavenly blessing; salvation – they are all Heavenly blessings. To receive these, faith is like a Heavenly currency. To purchase something in the market, you need money. When you get to the market, you begin to negotiate, – “How much is this?”
– “5 Naira.” You have 3 Naira; that money is not enough. That does not mean you don’t have money. If you get to the market and they say “10 dollars” for what you want to purchase, and you have 9 dollars, you will try to get your way. They say, “No, it is 10 dollars” and you have 9 dollars. What you need to do – you go back and get more money. That does not mean you don’t have money. In the same vein, when you say, “Heal me, heal me” and you are not healed, that does not mean you don’t have faith. It is only the measure of faith to purchase that healing you don’t have. Let me see your hand. Am I talking to you? You want to buy this in the market. On getting to the market, they say it is 10 dollars, but you have 7 dollars with you. You begin to negotiate to bring the price down – “No, it is 10 dollars.” There is nothing you can do. You can’t get that thing, but that does not mean you don’t have money. In the same vein, to receive that Heavenly blessing we are all waiting for, you need Heavenly currency to receive it. If you ask for something and you do not receive it, that does not mean you do not have faith but the measure of faith you need to purchase, to receive that, you do not have. Remember what Jesus said to His disciples. When the father of the demon-possessed boy ran after Jesus, saying, ‘Jesus, I brought my son to Your disciples for them to deliver him; they could not because they did not have power to do so’. Jesus said, ‘No, don’t say that; this is blasphemy! They have power but they lack the measure of faith to release the power’. That means they have power, but the measure, the degree of faith; that does not mean they do not have faith, but the degree, the amount of faith they need to get that power to deliver the boy… Hallelujah! Let’s open our Bible; just a proof text – the Book of Luke 6:37. “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you shall be forgiven.” Now, that should be the weapon. If you say, “Touch me and let it be to me according to my faith”, you mean, if you forgive others, you will be forgiven. If you condemn others, you will be condemned. If you show mercy to others, you will also receive mercy. That is what we are saying. That is God for you. If I show mercy to others, I will receive mercy. If I help others, I will receive help because the Bible says, “Whatever you do to the least of my fellow brothers, that you do to me”. Are you with me? If you say, “I help others”, or you have not but right now, you are ready to help others, you should be ready to be helped. You have not been showing mercy, kindness to others but on coming here, you have seen the reason you should show mercy and kindness to others. In your heart, what you are saying now, ‘If I should leave here today, my life is a changed one. I will help others; I will show mercy to others’. Now, you should be ready. God will not wait till you leave here to do that but immediately, you will begin to receive that mercy. Hallelujah! That is God for you. That is the meaning of, “Touch me and let it be to me according to my faith”. What is faith? Without love, no faith. Without faith, no love. Love is the motto of faith. Love is life in faith. No love, no life in faith. No love, lifeless faith. That is why many of us say, “We have faith” – it is faithless; you have faith but no love. So, once again. Show mercy to others and be of help to others. Whatever you can do, do to see that your life is for the services of others. Touch me and let it be to me according to my faith. What kind of faith are you talking about? That is, you are saying, “According to my love to others”. Touch me and let it be to me according to my love to others, my kindness to others, my goodness to others – touch me and let it be to me accordingly. Rise up for prayer. Hallelujah! Remember the words of wisdom. Touch me and let it be to me according to my love to others. Touch me and let it be to me according to my kindness to others. Touch me Lord and let it be to me according to my blessing to others, forgiveness to others. These are ingredients of faith. Touch me Lord and let it be to me according to my mercy to others, goodness, kindness, love, help, and forgiveness to others – touch me Lord. This means that on these conditions, you can receive a touch, a touch from Heaven. Because the Bible says that faith releases the healing anointing. Faith releases the deliverance anointing. Faith releases the blessing anointing. If you now say, “Touch me Lord and let it be to me according to my love, kindness, blessing, help, forgiveness to others”… Can you see on what condition God touches? When the Lord touches you and you are healed, your energy, your good health – for the services of others. When the Lord touches you and your business revives, and you begin to have good customers and others, the blessing is also for others. When the Lord touches you and you have a breakthrough in your life, you are blessed to bless others; you are going to be delivered to deliver others; you are going to be healed to heal others. Take note of this word. Touch me, Oh Lord and let it be to me according to my love, kindness, blessing, help, forgiveness to others. Heavenly Currency | Sermon | T.B. Joshua When the Lord touches you, you are healed. When the Lord touches you, you are delivered. When you are touched, you are free. That blessing you are waiting for now, can only be received by faith, which is a Heavenly currency. You want to purchase something in the market, you carry money there. Heavenly blessings – healing, deliverance – they are Heavenly things. If you want to receive them, you need this Heavenly currency to purchase them. The amount of currency you have will determine the amount of blessing you receive. If you cannot receive today does not mean you don’t have faith. It is the degree of faith you need that you probably don’t have, the measure of faith you need, you probably don’t have, not that you don’t have faith – don’t condemn yourself. That does not mean you are not a child of God. You shouldn’t say, “Because my prayer is not answered, I’m not a child of God”. You are still a child of God. “My prayer is not answered, I am not a child of God” – that is what the devil is using to disturb the children of God. When the devil knows that you are not grounded in the Word of God, he will begin to wait. When what you ask from God, you do not receive it, he will come in and say, “Can you see, you are not a child of God?” Your mind will begin to be disturbed, “Truly, I’m not a child of God. If I’m a child of God, God should give me what I asked for. I have been on it for many years now. I keep asking God, ‘Give me…’ Others are receiving, I’m not receiving.” The devil is the one doing that. He will just wait. When you offer prayer and it is not answered, he will come to you and say, “Can you see, you are not a child of God? If you are a child of God, you should receive it.” You become disturbed. Now, you will become more of devil. When you know, when your mind says, “I’m not a child of God”, what else again; you will smoke the more, you will lie the more. If I’m talking to you, let me see your hand. These are the intrigues and tactics satan is using to disturb the people of God. That you pray and you are not receiving answers to your prayers does not mean you are not a child of God. What has happened here? Listen. Probably you don’t have the degree, the measure of faith to receive that thing. I have given you a good example of money. You need 10 dollars to purchase this. On getting to the market, you never knew you needed 10 dollars, but you have 7 dollars. Getting to the market, you say, “I want to buy this”. They say, “No, it is 10 dollars”. – “No, please, it is 6, 7 dollars.”
– “No, it is 10 dollars.” And you move around everywhere – they say 10 dollars. You have to go back and get enough money to purchase it, but that does not mean you don’t have money or that you are poor. Heavenly Currency | Sermon | T.B. Joshua To the things of God now. You want to receive blessing from God, Heavenly blessing – you need Heavenly currency to receive it. You want healing – you pray and you are not receiving healing, probably you don’t have the degree, the measure of faith to receive that healing. That does not mean you are not a child of God; that does not make you an unbeliever. You just need to continue to press on, keep growing in faith so as to receive what you need from God. Jesus said to His disciples… This kind, that is what Jesus means, this kind of fruit can only be purchased by 10 dollars, not 7 dollars. That does not mean the disciples are devils or unbelievers. He said, “Pray and fast; you need to grow in faith to do that kind”. Heavenly Currency | Sermon | T.B. Joshua Don’t allow the devil to disturb you. When you offer prayer, “Father, I need this” and you are not receiving it, that does not make you an unbeliever. You are still a Christian; all you need is the measure of faith to receive that kind. Hearing and obeying the Word of God grows your faith. Devil uses this. You will see people that are Christians; yesterday and today they are pagans, or somebody you see as a Christian – suddenly you will find him in the club house. You say, “What happened?” “I prayed… I’m looking for a job but no answer to my prayer. What am I wasting my time for? Let me go back to the world.” – No. Satan uses this. Your prayer, relationship with God, “In Jesus’ name, I need this” – the answer has not yet come. Satan comes immediately and says, “Look, you are not a child of God. Come to me”. When satan says that you are not a child of God, he is telling you, “Come to me”. Satan has his own way. As Jesus said, “Come unto Me all ye that labour”, so, when you say, “Jesus, I need bread” and you are not receiving that bread, satan will come and say, “You are not a child of God; all ye that need bread, come to me – I have my bread”. Immediately he will come and say, “All ye that labour, you need bread, come to me. I will give you bread. You are not His child, that is why He is not giving you but I will give you – come!” Heavenly Currency | Sermon | T.B. Joshua I know everybody wants this. This one is not 10 dollars – for your information. If your faith is lifted up, let me see your hand. You believe now that when you ask for something from God and you are not receiving does not make you an unbeliever. I can’t hear your voice. Take note of that. That you are sick and you are praying, fasting and you are not receiving healing or any response from God does not make you an unbeliever. Thank you. Don’t let satan talk to your heart. Ninety nine percent that become unbelievers today – this is what satan uses. He waits for any time you ask something from God and an answer is not coming, he talks to your heart. You will begin to look for charms, spiritualists, herbalists, alternatives; that is the work of satan. You will begin to waver; you that go to church all the time, begin to, “I’m not going to church…” The posh car you use to come to church all the time – suddenly the engine knocks. At that moment, no money… You ask yourself, “What have I done? I pay my tithes, I come to church regularly. Why should this thing happen to me? What will I use to carry my family to church?” That is the work of satan. You are more of a Christian, that is why that attack comes. Tell your neighbour, You are more of God, that is why that attack comes. Anything close to God receives attack. Heavenly Currency | Sermon | T.B. Joshua If you are going too close – you begin to keep the commandments; too close to God, satan is disturbed. But when you begin to weaken in your relationship with God, satan will be laughing, “That’s good. He is coming back”. He will be blowing you with cool air, “Come back. Thank you”. Heavenly Currency | Sermon | T.B. Joshua When Jesus fasted 40 days 40 nights, that attack came. Why did it not come when He was just coming from the mountain – why? Why not when He was just coming from the mountain and He was fire. The greatest temptation Jesus received was after 40 days 40 nights – that moment immediately. Assume, He did not go for 40 days 40 nights – that temptation would have not come. Yes. So, when you are more of God, you should be ready. If satan used cutlass, he will drop the cutlass and begin to use machine gun. Because when he used cutlass to cut, you refused to be cut; instead, you moved close to the Saviour – you need a machine gun. You should draw strength from that weakness, not weakness from weakness but strength from weakness. Are you with me? Draw strength from weakness. Paul Apostle said, “When I am weak, then I am strong”. What is the meaning of that? I draw strength in my weakness. As I am standing here, I am weak but the strength is beside me, before me, behind me, always. When I move, though I am weak, the strength follows me. Heavenly Currency | Sermon | T.B. Joshua I am inside, like a cage. Around me is strength but me, I am weak. When I do like this, I rest on the strength. ‘Emmanuel’ means, ‘God is with me’. What is the meaning of that? If God be with you… Why do you need God to be with you? – Because you are weak. Why do you need God to be before you? – Because you are weak. Why do you need God to be beside you? – Because you are weak. If you are not weak, you do not need anything to be with you. He would have left you alone to walk on your own. Because you are weak, He will be with you, before you, after you, behind you. He is with you because you are weak. Heavenly Currency | Sermon | T.B. Joshua You are my strength when I am weak You are the Treasure that I seek You are my all in all Seeking You as a precious jewel Lord to give up I’d be a fool You are my all in all Jesus Lamb of God Worthy is Your Name Jesus Lamb of God Worthy is Your Name You are my strength when I am weak You are the Treasure that I seek You are my all in all Seeking You as a precious jewel Lord to give up I’d be a fool You are my all in all Jesus Lamb of God Worthy is Your Name Jesus Lamb of God Worthy is Your Name Believing is the only condition For answered prayer With my mouth I confess With my heart I believe I believe God’s Word is true for my life Lord I believe Help me overcome my unbelief TT Robert Begier 14/07/2019
