Possessing the Land Pt. 4 | Dr. Bill Winston Believer’s Walk of Faith


ANNOUNCER: The Believer’s
Walk of Faith is paid for by BILL Winston Ministries
partners and viewers. BILL: That’s the power
of the blessing that is on your life. It will put
down anything that’s coming against you because not
only will it raise you up and promote you, watch
this, it will protect you while you riseth. Not only will it
protect you, it will protect your kids, it will protect your
house, it will protect your business. I’m talking about the
blessing of Abraham. Hello, I’m Bill Winston
and welcome to another program. The program
that you’re watching is called the Believer’s
Walk of Faith, where we walk by faith and not
by sight. Well, as we continue with this teaching, Possessing
the Land, it’s very important to remember that this blessing that
God blessed Abraham with, the Abrahamic blessing, that same
blessing is on each and every born again believer. As a
spiritual seed of Abraham, we have this blessing on our lives.
Now, when this blessing comes, it attaches to you. I mean, you
can’t wash it off. The devil can’t separate you from it. That
blessing is yours from the time it gets to you to the time
you spend on this earth. This blessing guarantees us
fruitfulness and favor and in every situation you’re involved
in. I mean, you just hang in there because it will turn very
situation around to your advantage. It affects you
physically. It affects us financially, socially. Yeah, we
may have problems, true enough, but the blessing guarantees that
Lord would deliver us out of them all. Now, once this
blessing attaches to you, it guarantees you that not only
will you be blessed, but watch this, you’ll be a blessing to
others. Now God is going to not only blessed you and make your
name great, he’s going to have you to be a blessing to other
people. It is a powerful teaching. Remember I came here
to this city of Chicago with $200, but I embraced the
blessing. Look what it’s done for this ministry. Praise
the Lord. Let’s go right into it. It’s
called Possessing the Land. The blessing is all through
the bible and it instantly changes you. In other words,
when the blessing comes, it will significantly change
every aspect of your life when the blessing comes.
Now, it’s so powerful until you can actually start at one
level and go to a greater intensity of the blessing.
Now, here’s a story and I said it in last service
that we’re on a mission trip, I think it was in Central America
somewhere, Guatemala or Nicaragua, somewhere. I finished
preaching on the Holy Ghost and the Holy Church and then I said,
“Okay. Let’s call for people to get born again.” Boom, they get
born again. People come up to give their life to the Lord. We
said the sinner’s prayer and everything. I said, “Okay. Now
I’m going to get them fill with the Holy Ghost.” I said so, I
prayed with them and explained. Gave them some instructions
first and then told to hold their hands up and God was going
to fill them with the Holy Ghost so forth and boom. Then I went
to this certain lady who got saved, got filled with the Holy
Ghost, asked her to come up on the platform. She came up and I
said, “Okay. Let me get someone who has been sick or been ill or
something.” A Lady came up and she had a back problems and so
forth, so she came up, I stood right here and the other lady I
stood here. Now I’m with the lady who just got filled with
the Holy Ghost and just got the power of God in her life, and so
I said, “Okay. Now, the Bible says those that believe shall
lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.” I said, “Okay. I
want you to take your hand,” and I said, “I’m going to take your
hand now.” I gathered her hand. Her hand was really just limp. I
said, “I’ve got your hand and I’m going to put your hand on
her head.” As I do that that point of contact that we’re
going to believe that the power that’s in you, it’s going to
drive the sickness out of her, okay? I said, “Come up here.”
She came. Put her hand on her. Well, the power flowed
immediately and the lady who was standing there with her hand on
her, she just fell back, and they caught her of course. She
was only faint and she was out. The lady who put her hand her
say, “Oh my Lord. Oh God. Oh God.” I said, “Hold, cool it.
It’s all right,” and then they got the lady up, totally healed.
I said, “Now, wait a minute. 10 minutes ago, you couldn’t do
that, but 10 minutes after you got all power in you.” I’m
telling you, when I tell you about this, just your receiving
what’s already in you, if you’re born again and got the Holy
Ghost, you’re going to see a total deliverance. You’re going
to see things happening in your life that you never see if
you’ll just believe and embrace the blessing. That’s all you got
to do. You need to wake up in the morning and say, “I am
blessed.” ANNOUNCER: I’m blessed. BILL: Come on. You need
to go to bed at night, say, “I’m going to bed in the blessing.”
ANNOUNCER: Amen. BILL: All right? ANNOUNCER: Amen. BILL:
Where is this blessing seen? Let’s go back to Genesis first,
and over in Genesis, in chapter 1. He said, “And God said, Let
us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the
air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over
every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Right
there you’ve got dominion over creeps. No, I’m just kidding.
That’s just a gentleman’s joke there. Praise the Lord,
hallelujah. A little humor, very little. All right, look at what
he said in verse 28, “And God blessed them.” Here it comes
now. This word blessed has to do with this root word Barak, and
you’ve heard it in the President’s name. You heard it
somewhere else. It’s Hebrew, not Greek. It’s Hebrew, and it means
in the Hebrew, that word, it means to endue with power for
success, to endue with power for success, and then the word
blessing, is Baraka. All right? AUDIENCE: Amen. BILL: Again,
it’s talking about the root word to have the blessing on your
life. Now this blessing is all affects every area of your life.
It affects your finances. It gives you supernatural favor. It
gives you supernatural promotion, prosperity,
longevity, fruitfulness, a person couldn’t have a job
before, now they can have one, protection, and even business
savvy. Now that’s blessing. Now, it’s powerful and it is a
lifter. It will lift you up and change your whole life. The
blessing will do that, and every part of your life is affected by
this blessings. Where do we see it? We saw it in Revelation, but
now we see it in Genesis, that here the blessing of what I call
the blessing of the Lord, and it’s all through the Bible.
Now, I’m not going to start in Genesis again. I just jumped to
something we taught on in Proverbs chapter 10 verse 22,
and he said, “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he
addeth no sorrow.” I ask you to look at that in the NIV
translation. “The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without
painful toil for it,” so you don’t have to toil for
this. AUDIENCE: Yes sir. AUDIENCE: Amen. BILL: You
don’t have to … As a matter of fact, you’ve been redeemed from
groping. Now, I’m jumping ahead of myself. Could you just pardon
me for jumping ahead of myself for just a minute? AUDIENCE:
Amen. BILL: Look at Deuteronomy 28, he says in verse 1, “And it
shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken to the voice of
the Lord thy God, and to observe and to do all his commandments
which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set
thee …” What? AUDIENCE: On high. BILL: On high, keep going.
Above … AUDIENCE: All nations. BILL: Come on, say it.
AUDIENCE: All nations. BILL: Say it one more time.
AUDIENCE: All nations. BILL: It’s going to take you above
everybody. Are you with me? “And all these …” what?
AUDIENCE: Blessings. BILL: Blessings shall come on thee,
and overtake thee.” Now, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. They’re
going to do what? AUDIENCE: Overtake. BILL: They’re going to
overtake you. He didn’t say the blessing. You already got the
blessing, but the blessing is going to produce blessings. Got
it? AUDIENCE: Yes. BILL: They’re going to come on you,
you can be running, and these blessings are going to run you
down. You can’t outrun them. I’m saying that once the blessing
comes on you, it sticks to you. You can’t wash it off. The devil
can’t, come on, he can’t separate you from it. It’s going
to be with you until you leave this earth. Now, look at some of
these blessings that are going to come on you and overtake you,
verse 10, “And all people of the earth shall see that thou art
called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be …” what?
Afraid or in awe of you. They’re going to look at you and say,
“Oh.” Let’s go to the next verse, “And the Lord shall
make you …” What? AUDIENCE: Plenteous. BILL: Plenteous in
goods. Now, these are some of the blessings that are going to
come out of the what? Blessing, the Baraka. You see, these are
going to come out because you have that blessing when you got
born again. Don’t think you got to feel this. She didn’t feel
anything. She just stepped out on what I said she had, and when
she put the hand on the lady, the power of God came through
her and healed the lady, and she never went to school, the
medical school. It’s going to teach you stuff that you never
knew. Come on and help me now. Now, you wait until I get to
some of that. Look what he said next, in the next verse, verse
12, “The Lord shall open unto you his good treasure in heaven
and give you the rain unto your land in his season, and to bless
…” how much of the work of your hand? AUDIENCE: All.
BILL: All the work of your hand: and thou shall, do what now?
AUDIENCE: Lend. BILL: Lend to many nations, but you shall
not … What? AUDIENCE: Borrow. BILL: Keep going, “And
the Lord shall make you …” AUDIENCE: The head. BILL:
The head. Keep going. AUDIENCE: not the tail.
BILL: Not the tell, and you shall be what? AUDIENCE:
Above only. BILL: Above only, come on, and thou shall not be
beneath; if you hearken into the voice, if you just do what he
says, so that nobody is going to be higher than you, that you are
going to be promoted by God. That’s Psalms chapter 75 and
verse 6, “For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from
the west,” come one, “nor from the south. But God is the judge:
he will put down one,” keep going, “and set up another.”
AUDIENCE: Hallelujah. Amen. BILL: When that blessing comes
on you and hold on to and embrace the blessing and do what
God says, it sticks to you, and, watch this, it’s going to take
you to a level that you know you didn’t do, but God’s going to
make you and bring you into leadership. I don’t care what
you lay your hands to, it’s going to prosper, come on, and
you don’t have to be fear of failing in this. All you got to
do is hold on to the blessing, and the blessing is going to
prosper you. See, you got to understand, 1, that God is good.
AUDIENCE: Amen. BILL: James chapter 1 and verse 17, God is
good. The Bible says over in James chapter 1:17, “Every good
gift and every perfect gift is from above, and it comes down
from the Father of lights,” watch this, “inn whom there’s no
variableness or shadow of turning.” God is only good, and
anything good, truly good, it comes from God because God is
good and he’s good to everybody. Watch this, he lets the sun
shine and the rain on the just, come on, and on the unjust, so
everybody gets that’s, but I’m not talking about that. I’m
talking about a flow. I’m talking about something that’s
higher than the everyday blessings that people God. I’m
talking about what God has chosen you and he’s about to
distinguish you as one that nobody can compete with, Glory
to God. Nobody can compete with. Say amen. AUDIENCE: Amen.
BILL: Now, what happens with the enemy now? The enemy wants you
to get into some stuff that God didn’t plan for you to get into.
Look, I was talking about groping just a minute ago. Look
at Deuteronomy 28 again, and if you look at Deuteronomy 28 and
verse 15, it says, “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not
hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do
all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee
this day; that all these … What? AUDIENCE: Curses.
BILL: Curses shall come upon you, and do what? AUDIENCE:
Overtake. BILL: They shall overtake you. Now look what he
said in the curses, verse 27, “The Lord will smite thee with
the botch of Egypt.” Botch is boils, so it didn’t mean that
God is going to do it himself. This is in a permissive. He will
allow it to be done, because God is good all the time. Say amen.
AUDIENCE: Amen. BILL: “… of Egypt, and with the emerods,
and with the scab, and with the itch,” now all of this is under
the curse, so whatever is itching on you, you can get rid
of it because you are not curse. You are blessed. “… whereof
thou canst not be healed.” Watch this, “The Lord shall smite thee
with madness,” now it’s looking like it’s him doing it, but it’s
not. It’s allowing, and I’ll have to teach on that. Go back
and get my tape on redeemed from sickness. It will tell you
that. “… and blindness, and astonishment of heart: And thou
shall …” what? AUDIENCE: Grope. BILL: Grope. Now, grope
means to wander around in the dark trying to figure out what
to do. Say amen. AUDIENCE: Amen. BILL: In other words, you
don’t have to grope anymore in your life. When you start
groping, you know that’s under the curse, and now you just need
to start confessing the blessing so that you can get the groping
out of your life. George Washington Carver, if you don’t
know him, he was a black man. He was a scientist back in the time
when Booker T. Washington raised up an institution called
Tuskegee, Tuskegee University, or Tuskegee Institute or Normal
at that time. George Washington Carver, George Washington Carver
went from obscurity all the way to the Senate Ways and Means
Committee where they called him in and asked him how is he doing
this, and how does he know all this thing. George Washington
Carver named his laboratory God’s Little Workshop. What does
he say he does? He goes in there, closes the door behind
him, and when he does, he said God pulls back a curtain, and he
tells him to take things apart and how to put things together
again. Well, that’s no different from Jesus. You’d see over in
Jesus’ time on John chapter 7, it says here in verse, Glory to
God, 14, “Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the
temple, and taught. And the Jews marvelled, saying,” keep going,
“How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?” Okay,
here’s what it says in on translation, “How does he know
so much, he never went to our schools?” Well, let’s look over
here in John chapter 6 if you will, and Jesus in verse 5, and
he lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he
said to Philip, “Where can we buy bread, that these may eat?
He said, to prove him, for he himself … what? AUDIENCE:
Knew. BILL: He himself what? AUDIENCE: Knew. BILL: He
himself what? AUDIENCE: Knew. BILL: He just knew what he
would do. Say amen to that. AUDIENCE: Amen. BILL: Let’s
look at Daniel and Daniel chapter 1, over in Daniel
chapter 1, it says here about the 3 Hebrews, it says, “These
4 children, God gave them …” what? AUDIENCE: Knowledge.
BILL: Knowledge, and what else? AUDIENCE: Skill. BILL:
Skill, what else? AUDIENCE: in all learning. BILL: In all
learning, and what else? AUDIENCE: Wisdom. BILL:
Wisdom, and Daniel so forth and so on. They had understanding.
Meaning that you open up the same textbook they open up, but
God adds to you … Oh, you ain’t getting excited.
AUDIENCE: Amen. BILL: All right, how about when Adam named
the animals. Where did he get the names from? I’m here to tell
you know, he had been blessed, and this blessing will teach
you. Look what he said in Genesis chapter 2 in verse 18,
“And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be
alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the
ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every
fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he
would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living
creature, that was the name thereof.” Now, my point to you
is, if there’s one thing that the blessing does, it’s that
blessing is a teacher. Here is what David said in Psalm 144 and
verse 1, this is David, now he came to the front line and Saul
said, “Don’t fight this giant,” he said, “Because you have never
ever been trained in war.” This is Psalm 144 and verse 1,
“Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth,” keep going, “my
hands to war,” come one, “and my fingers to fight.” Come on over
here to Genesis chapter 39. I’m telling you, God is about to
take you somewhere you’ve never been before, and he’s going
to teach you by grace. Glory to God. In Genesis chapter 39, here
is Joseph working for a man named Potiphar, and he was a
slave, but the Bible says in verse 4, “And Joseph found grace
in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over
his house, and all that he had he put into Joseph’s hand.” Now,
what did I say to you? I’ll tell 1, he’ll teach you. Now, Joseph
never went to ranch management school, but when he got in that
environment and the blessing took over, the blessing is
designed to take you up above everybody. You see, God is about
to put the church in leadership. The Bible says in verse 5, “And
it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in
his house, and all that he had, that the Lord …” what?
AUDIENCE: Blessed BILL: “Blessed the Egyptian’s house
for Joseph’s sake; and the …” What? “… blessing of the Lord
was upon …” what? “All that he had in the house, and in the
field.” Here is Joseph coming in as a slave in chain. Now he has
risen up and he is over the whole house of Potiphar.
Now, how did he get there? The blessing promoted him. The
blessing taught his hand how to do ranch management stuff, and
he never got his MBA from Harvard or Wharton or Stanford.
I’m telling you, God knows that you didn’t have an opportunity
to go to those places, but that’s not going to stop him
from fulfilling the plan that he have for your life in this hour.
I’m telling you now, so what happened to people? People come
because they don’t know God and they don’t know this blessing,
they come and they start accusing the system. Well,
they’re really prejudiced down there, and they don’t have a
diversity program down there. Diversity? Joseph didn’t need no
diversity. Come on. Moses didn’t need to diversity. Abraham
didn’t need no diversity. Listen, I got nothing against
them people, but I am saved. I am sanctified, filled with the
Holy Ghost, if God before me, there ain’t a man that can stand
against me. Here it is in the book. Here it is in the book.
See, you don’t see the devil is the one that tries it to make it
so that people will blame people, and people become their
enemy. Folks, somebody doesn’t have to be poor for you to get
rich. You see, he can make everybody rich up in here. He
can make everybody a millionaire and never touch his reserves.
Now, I’m going to tell you something. If you don’t want to
hear this, it’s because your mind had been witchcraft, and
your mind had been … Listen, I’m reading you this out of the
book. Promotion don’t come from a man. Promotion for you comes
from God. See, the devil will promote his people. He will take
his people and put them on top. They’re singing all that music
about cop killing and saying things about women, and all that
cussing and cussing, and God knows that I ain’t got nothing
against him, but you’re about to go over that. You’re about to
own industry. You’re about to tell the industry what the new
standard is. Now give God a praise because we’re moving up.
The devil is a liar and Jesus is the Messiah. I ain’t got nothing
against Potiphar, but he’s still heathen. I got nothing against
Tim Good. You make the music you want to make, but I’m about to
get and take over the industry. I’m about to tell you what we
will accept. See, one reason that blessing is on your life is
wherever he send you, you’re going to fix it. Wherever you
go, you’re going to bring it under kingdom jurisdiction.
Oh, I’m preaching now. You can dislike me for my color all you
want. I came here and they didn’t like me. They didn’t like
me. They didn’t want me to do this. Don’t think it’s all 1
group of people. It was even some of my brethren. I mean,
folks that look like me didn’t want me to get ahead, but it
don’t make no difference. I believe God. That’s all you got
to do, and you can fill up any arena. Come on. You can take the
devil down at any place. Now that’s what I’m talking about.
That’s the power of the blessing that is on your life. It will
put down anything that’s coming against you because not only
will it raise you up and promote you, watch this, it will protect
you while you riseth. Not only will it protect you, it will
protect your kids, it will protect your house, it
will protect your business. I’m talking about
the blessing of Abraham. ANNOUNCER: The
blessing of Abraham came on every believer through
Jesus Christ, believing in the blessing is key to manifesting
God’s best in your life. With the blessing comes,
success, prosperity, health, protection, and so much
more. Don’t miss out on all the promises of God that rightfully
belong to you. Go in and possess the land. To order your copy of
