We are thrilled to report to you that when you receive this letter, we will have just aired our FIRST TV broadcast for “On the Road to Freedom!” This is a dream come true for us and many years in the making! It is a huge step of faith but God is faithful and He is leading us every step of the way. As Christi and I have been covering 2018 in prayer and seeking God for direction in our new TV Ministry, we realize that we will need to DOUBLE in resources, ability and anointing in order to do His will. Immediately, we were prompted to lay hold of God’s promises of the Double Blessing!
Isaiah 61:2 proclaims that this is “the acceptable year of the Lord-the year of His FAVOR!” As you know it is only by the gracious favor of God that we receive any blessing from The Lord. Verse seven says, “Instead of your [former] shame you shall have a TWO-FOLD recompense...Therefore in their land they shall possess DOUBLE; everlasting JOY shall be theirs.” This double blessing is so astonishing that others know we were not smart enough to become this blessed. Verse nine explains that, “All who see them [in their prosperity] will recognize and acknowledge that they are the people whom THE LORD HAS BLESSED.” The world always recognizes blessing and they will acknowledge that we are the people The Lord has blessed! God gets all the glory!
Another powerful promise of double blessing is in Zechariah 9:12, “Return to the stronghold [of security and prosperity], you prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will restore DOUBLE your former prosperity to you.” Please notice here that we have a part in receiving double Blessing...we stay full of hope! It’s time to get our hopes up! You may have heard it said that hope is the blueprint for faith. Hebrews 11:1 explains, “Faith is the substance (evidence) of things HOPED FOR…” Answered prayers BEGIN with HOPE.
We see in Job 42:10, another essential factor: “And the Lord turned the captivity of Job and restored his fortunes, when he prayed for his friends; also the Lord gave Job TWICE as much as he had before.” Whoa! This is SO important because “Faith works by Love.” This means our prayers don’t get answered if we get out of love! The friends this verse is talking about did not encourage Job in the Word but instead rebuked him saying that all of the horrific tragedy he had suffered was his fault! (We’ve all experienced this religious devil!) I’m sure Job would have rather told them off instead of praying FOR them. But when Job chose to forgive and prayed for his friends, God was moved. At the moment of obedience, God restored his fortunes and gave him double for his trouble!
Please let me encourage you right now to CHOOSE to FORGIVE. CHOOSE LOVE, especially with those who have betrayed your trust. We don’t have to be best friends or hang out with them and we certainly don’t have to trust untrustworthy people. But we do need to forgive and pray FOR them. When we choose to obey, get ready to be overtaken!
As you give this month, speak over your seed the promises of possessing DOUBLE! Say this with me, “Father, I choose to forgive all those who have hurt me. I release them. I let it go. I pray for their deliverance and choose to stay full of hope in Your faithfulness. Therefore, in 2018, I believe according to Isaiah 61:7 that I will possess double! Double resources, ability, honor and joy! Others will notice and say, ‘That is the person the Lord has blessed!” Glory to God! Be excited knowing it is your giving that enables us to take this Good News to the nations through TV ministry. Jesus said in John 8:31-32, “If you continue in My Word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the Truth, and the Truth will make you free.” The more we continue in the Word, the freer we get. So as disciples of Jesus Christ, we are all…“On the Road to Freedom!”
We Love You,
Mylon & Christi
