Bill Winston Declares We Are Entering A Season of Recompense- The Lord Will Repay All That The Enemy Has Stolen From Us

Sunday, April 19, 2009

I am so thankful that Bill Winston Ministries stream their Sunday services so that people who are not in the Chicago, Illinois area can view his services. They are always uplifting and scripturally based.

Sunday, April 19, Pastor Winston prophesized that we (The Body of Christ) are entering a season of recompense. Lord God will repay us of all things the enemy has stolen from us. Pastor Winston even goes as far as to say we will be repaid for things taken or denied from our parents and grandparents. He says even going back 10 generations. Hallelujah!

As usual, Pastor Winston always provides scripture for his words. His prophecy is based on what God has put on his heart and the scripture in

Hebrews 10:30 which says:
“30For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.”

Pastor Winston also referenced Isaiah 60:1-5 which says:
“1Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

2For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

3And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

4Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

5Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.” (King James Version)

Here is the New Living Translation of the same scripture:
1 “Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see.
For the glory of the Lord rises to shine on you.
2 Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth,
but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you.
3 All nations will come to your light;
mighty kings will come to see your radiance.
4 “Look and see, for everyone is coming home!
Your sons are coming from distant lands;
your little daughters will be carried home.
5 Your eyes will shine,
and your heart will thrill with joy,
for merchants from around the world will come to you.
They will bring you the wealth of many lands.

Pastor Winston also references:

Isaiah 61:1-3
1The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

2To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

3To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

Of course these blessings are for those who are saved, born again, people who believed that Jesus Christ on the cross took on the burden of sin, died on the cross, then rose to be with God The Father so that we will live eternally spiritually.

Words Of Encouragement For The Unemployed

Tuesday, July 8, 2008

No matter how long someone is unemployed, at times there is a tendency to be worried. We are human and the flesh is weak. Though I have faith in God and the steps that He has ordered me to take, I did have a bout with worry.

But as always God is right there with me. At the very moment I began to shed a few tears, a good friend of mine that I had not heard from in a while and who is also a Christian sent me a text message of encouragement. After exchanging messages back and forth, I felt better.

But as time went by (about a couple of hours) the flesh became weak again. I cried again but through the tears I repeatedly thanked God. I told God I know I will reach the other side of this storm because He is with me. I told God and Jesus that I love them.

Then a recruiter called me about an opportunity for a company I worked for as a contractor several years ago. I do not know how this opportunity will turn out. But my point is that God is showing me in different ways that He is right there. He knows what I am going through. And I am making a point to praise Him and love Him as I go through this period of unemployment.

So I wanted to find some relevant scripture that I could share with you. I want to encourage you to read Luke 12:22-31 which tells us not to worry and to listen to the song I included below. God knows we have needs. So if you are unemployed or you are lacking, know that God is with you and He knows what you are going through.  Here is

Luke 12:22-31

22Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life[b]? 26Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

 27“Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! 29And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

Here is a song by James Fortune and FIYA called “Trust The Lord”

Update: 4/6/2012

God truly has a plan for you as He does for me. Since I made this blog post back in 2008, it is now 4/6/2012. I have been employed with the same employer for almost 4 years now! God is so good. Not only that. I couldn’t ask for a better boss and team of co-workers. My boss understands the need for a balance between work and life. As a single parent, it really helps. But that’s just the beginning of how God allowed me to go through unemployment to take me to the next level (to elevate me). I am at a job with several weeks vacation and I’m able to work from home up to 3 days a week. I said all that to say, that No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Trust in the Lord, there is a reason for this season. God knows what He is doing. All you have to do is simply believe! Keep pushing and searching for work. God will meet your need! I am truly a witness and I’ve been through unemployment a few times. Your blessing is coming soon my friend! In Jesus name.

Update: 2/1/2015
Here I am, almost seven years later. I am still employed with the same company that God led to bring me out of unemployment. I’ve prospered so much at and through this job. I’m so incredibly blessed. I’m now Team Lead over my group of peers at the company. I’ve been blessed in ways you’d never imagine and ways that I didn’t see coming. God is so good my friend! Don’t give up! God will bring you out of the storm and elevate you on top of it! Remember to TRUST HIM!

Lastly, don’t be too proud to reach out to 24 hour prayer lines.
