The Thousandfold Principle Blows the Lid off Poverty and Lack

Pastor Benny HinnI want to tell you how much your love and prayers mean to me. So many have sent notes of encouragement and messages of love throughout the past year and a half, and you will never know how your love and prayers have given me comfort and encouragement.

Because I love you, I want to share a powerful truth with you that has impacted my life forever, and I know it can open up the windows of heaven on your life, as well.

Supernatural Principles of God's Economy
Did you know that God's Word contains the principles of millionaire mentality?

It's true!

And as we put into practice the same principles that caused God's servants of old to acquire untold wealth, I know these same principles will affect your financial situation in a practical way and will cause God's financial abundance to come and overtake your life and forever change your circumstances.

Three years ago I heard a teaching about the thousandfold principle that, frankly, I found difficult to believe. To be perfectly honest with you, I thought the application of the teaching was gimmicky, but because I was going through a difficult financial situation, God used my circumstances to put this principle into practice. So I put it to the test and gave a $1,000 seed, and I was amazed by the results. When I saw the amazing harvest, I confess I still wondered if the results I was experiencing might just be a coincidence; maybe this was happening by chance, I thought.

But later I was facing a similar situation and needed a financial breakthrough. The Lord Jesus reminded me of the seed I had sown based on the thousandfold principle, and He prompted my heart to do it again. To my shock, amazement, and utter joy, God rewarded my obedience and gave me another remarkable financial breakthrough. It has been three years since then, and during that time, I have seen this truth work for me over and over, again and again.

Economic Realities
When I began sowing $1,000 seeds based on the thousandfold principle, I did not realize I was sowing into a powerful biblical principle, but now after all this time, I am convinced it is biblical. It has been proven throughout the centuries and is as powerful today as it was in the Old Testament.

The Bible has much to say about the thousandfold principle. In fact, the word thousand is recorded in the King James Version of the Bible 521 times, so it is obviously a number that is important to the kingdom of God.

The Lord God says, “Every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills” (Psalm 50:10). The thousand hills in this passage are representative of the foundation of prosperity, for the thousand hills support the cattle on them. So a thousand is a reference to the basis of God's system of prosperity in His divine kingdom. And that system of prosperity has been put into action for you, His precious child.

Consider this: when God counts, He counts in thousands, for in the kingdom of God, one and one thousand are the same.

With God, there is no difference between one and one thousand: “Be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Peter 3:8).

Please stop to consider this truth once more: God does not count as we do: 1, 2, 3... God counts in thousands!

In Ezekiel 47:3-5, we are told three different times that the river of God was measured in a thousand cubits at a time. It wasn't 997, 998, or 999. God had an angel measure it by an exact thousand! There are no meaningless details in the Bible, and this one is a hidden truth that is being revealed to you for a divine purpose. There is power in the thousandfold principle!

Solomon's Millionaire Mentality
King Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings, with powerful results: “The king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that altar. In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee” (1 Kings 3:4-5).

Solomon understood the thousandfold principle from his own father, David. That's why God blessed both men so greatly, even saying, “Ask what I shall give thee.” Solomon and David understood a principle we do not. They had a millionaire mentality. In fact, by today's standards their wealth would make them multibillionaires—wealthier than all the kings, sultans, and Donald Trump combined! And as children of God, our financial advisor is God Himself and our road map to financial freedom is His divine Word.

Look at Solomon's incredible offering: “Solomon offered a sacrifice of peace offerings, which he offered unto the Lord, two and twenty thousand oxen, and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the children of Israel dedicated the house of the Lord” (1 Kings 8:63).

Later on, Solomon increased his offering because he saw the benefit. It was all the thousandfold principle.

Thousandfold is not an amount. It is a measure. And the thousandfold measure releases a limitless measure. Everything below that has limitation, but the thousandfold principle removes the boundaries, releases the impossible, and opens the lid on the supernatural.

Your Step of Faith
The thousandfold principle is God's unlimited power and ability to operate in every aspect of your life!

The thousandfold principle holds the potential to unleash unlimited amounts of riches and wealth on you.

So I challenge you today to step out in faith, as I have. Sow a thousand-dollar seed into the Lord's work, claiming the promises given in God's Word.

The Lord offers us a powerful promise: “The Lord God of your fathers make you a thousand times so many more as ye are, and bless you, as he hath promised you!” (Deuteronomy 1:11).

Now it is up to you to claim the promise that God will “make you a thousand times so many more.” He will increase you a thousand times.

Take a major step of faith. Begin to break the back of debt, once and for all. Begin to live your life, operating your finances with a millionaire mentality. Just as David and Solomon learned to unleash the boundless resources of the thousandfold principle, you, too, can live in the realm of superabundance.

But do it today! Do not wait for your circumstances to change; change your circumstances and see the harvest begin to multiply.

Sow your thousandfold seed, and do it in Jesus' name!

God Almighty will give to us according to the measure we sow today. That is why Jesus promised, “With the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again” (Luke 6:38). What we do today will count toward what happens in the future!

We are in a mighty season of change in so many areas—spiritual, political, and financial. In a major area of transition, people of God are receiving more and more revelation about God's outpouring on their lives. This is exciting, and I want you to be a part of it!
