Introduction

MIRACLE MONEY i s different from any other kind of money. What do I mean? Well, think about it. Some money comes from labor. It’s called “wages,” or “earned money.” Money sometimes comes from departed relatives. It would be called “inherited money.” Money that comes by way of the lottery, a contest, a drawing, or such would be called “chance money.” There is also stolen money, lost money, dirty money, etc.

However, there is a kind of money that can be described only as MIRACLE MONEY. It’s the special money God miraculously gives to His children. That’s the kind of money this book is about.

The Bible says Simon Peter received some MIRACLE MONEY.

[Jesus told Simon Peter] . . . Go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money [miracle money]: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

Matthew 17:27

 

Testimonies

As you read, you will see a number of testimonies from people who have received MIRACLE MONEY! Keep in mind that they represent only a few of the hundreds of thousands of people who have received MIRACLE MONEY from God.

The Bible tells us we must never underestimate the strength of a believer’s testimony, for it gives other believers tremendous power over the enemy.

…Late one night you were talking about the hundredfold return. I suppose some viewers tuning in might think that was just another gimmick but. . . God was speaking to me to pledge $50. I knew God was going to multiply that $50 back to me.

I mailed in my $50 that next week . . . and marked the check “hundredfold.” I began believing God. I knew He was going to do it for me, and I knew it would be a supernatural act on His part.

Okay, $50 x 100 is $5,000.

Two weeks after I made the pledge, I got a $1,500 bonus at work. Then we got our annual evaluations at work. I got a promotion, my own office with a window, and a 15 percent raise in my pay. Guess what! That 15 percent on an annual basis brings me up to the hundredfold increase. God is so great!

Again, I thank God for you…!

…they overcame him [the devil] by the blood of the Lamb, and
by the word of their testimony.

Revelation 12:11

Because of this power, you must read every testimony very carefully. Each one will help you overthrow Satan’s conspiracy to limit your money and keep you from receiving the MIRACLE MONEY God has set aside for you. As you read each real life report of those who have already received their MIRACLE MONEY, three powerful truths will be revealed to you!

First, you will realize that God’s ways and thoughts are not the same as yours!

…my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

Isaiah 55:8

Second, you will become convinced that God is not discriminating against you, for His Word clearly states that He is no respecter of persons.

Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.

Acts 10:34

Just as surely as God gave Isaac the miracle hundredfold release when he needed it the most, God wants to do the same for you.

… Isaac sowed in that land, [in the midst of famine] and received in the same year an hundredfold….

Genesis 26:12

Keep in mind that Isaac’s hundredfold release came to him at a time when the devil’s crowd had blocked all of his methods of increase.

…all the wells which his father’s servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.

Genesis 26:25

MIRACLE MONEY usually comes when things are all stopped up in the natural realm.

Your MIRACLE MONEY will make you a personal witness to the fact that the hundredfold release was not a one-time event that happened only to Isaac in the distant past. You will be able to boldly tell others that it is still happening today! And best of all, it’s happening to you!

I am a fourteen-year-old eighth grader who attends a Christian junior high in my town. One night. . . John Avanzini was giving a message on the hundredfold blessing. I told my mom I felt I should send something . . . but I wasn’t sure how much.  She said she  was feeling led to send in a one-time gift beyond our monthly pledge as well.

I kept hearing $50, so I told my mom about it. At that time, $50 was a substantial amount of the cash I had on hand. I have no regular job to earn money  anywhere—only a weekly allowance. Mom sent the $50 in for me, and since that time I have

reaped a harvest. It started a few days later when some sporting equipment I had for sale was sold. Then I entered an art contest, and over three months’ time, I have received three cash awards.

I was accumulating money so fast I had to put it in my savings account. Mom encouraged me to write you and let you know how one teenager saw a principle from the Word of God really work in his life.

But he shall receive an hundredfold
now in this time. . . .And Jesus … said … There is no man that hath left house… or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s.

Mark 10:29,30

Hear the apostle Paul as he tells you how eager God is to bless you!

He [God] that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Romans 8:32

Third, your faith will grow much stronger. It will cause you to move away from impossibility thinking and its limitations into the open heaven of possibility thinking. As your faith grows, the following words from God will become more and more real to you.

Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever….

Hebrews 13:8 AMP

Your Bible will become more alive than ever before, showing you there is no special day of miracles somewhere in the distant past. Instead, you will know there is only one God, and He is the God of miracles. Wherever He is, miracles  happen!

I could not release the information in this booklet just a few years ago. However, now that there are so many credible witnesses who have personally received MIRACLE MONEY, it’s safe to present it.

After reading only this far, you have already begun your journey out of the financial instability of this world’s system of chance and insufficiency, into the financial stability God has for you. Don’t let anything stop you, for your MIRACLE MONEY release is nearer now than it’s ever been.

When we received your teaching in Vega, Texas in August, we believed and received it and acted on it with a $100 check. We were in a financial bind, but we were believing for a hundredfold return.

On October 30, my husband received a check for $990 and a notice that for the next 45 weeks, he would receive $330 per week in insurance payments for a work-related injury. We had no idea this would come, but it comes to $14,000! Glory!

Chapter 1 : The Truth Comes in Africa

God wants to reveal Himself to you in the hundredfold release. This is probably the boldest sentence I have ever written. However, it’s not nearly as bold as the prayer the Apostle John made for your finances.

…I [pray] above all things that thou mayest prosper….

3 John 2

The top prayer of a most dedicated apostle is that you prosper.

The event I am about to share with you is the most sacred experience I have ever had. I never thought God would have me write about it. However, I have received definite instructions from Him. He said the hundredfold release must now come to more people than ever before. He told me it was time to write  the MIRACLE MONEY booklet. His words of release were these. “Go ahead and write the MIRACLE MONEY booklet. The opposition can no longer stop your message.”

Africa

My personal experience with the hundredfold release took place during my first visit to Africa. I have been blessed with several powerful revelations in my lifetime. However, to date none of them has changed as many lives as the hundredfold release.

It happened as I was helping a well known evangelist with a school of ministry in Nigeria. Travel complications caused me to arrive a day late. It was Tuesday, and that day’s first teaching session was already in progress. The building was so full that many of the 2,000 people in attendance had to stand.

As I entered the side door, I was greatly impacted by an overwhelming presence. It was as if supernatural heat was circulating throughout the room. As I considered what this strange sensation might be, I realized it was the presence of the Holy Spirit. He was everywhere.

Not long after I arrived, a second speaker came to the pulpit. As he spoke, the Spirit once again filled the room. With each word, the people’s faith grew stronger. Suddenly I realized that in this atmosphere, nothing would be impossible.

The Spirit Lifts

When the speaker closed his dynamic teaching, I was called to the pulpit and introduced to the people. This was my first of four, two-hour sessions. As soon as I began to speak, the presence of the Holy Spirit lifted. All I could hear was my own voice echoing through the room. My neatly prepared lesson notes were hollow sounding, to say the least.

Now don’t misunderstand. I was presenting powerful information. However, God’s power was noticeably absent from my delivery. The feeling of anticipation that had filled the room just a few moments earlier was gone.

I continued to speak for what seemed like an hour. When I looked at my watch, only fifteen minutes had passed! Worst of all, I still had an unbelievable hour and forty-five minutes to go.

Every cell in my body cried out, “You will never last that long!” Even worse, I knew the audience wouldn’t last either.

After only a few more minutes, I closed my first session, explaining that my long journey had left me too exhausted to finish. I promised I would get some rest and start fresh the next day. As I left the platform, the only sigh of relief that was louder than my own came from the congregation.

Facing the Truth

I had to face the ugly truth. I was out of place among the speakers on the program. Each of them possessed a power that I had never experienced.

Throughout my previous eighteen years of ministry, I had never been confronted with anything like this. I had always taught with a strong, convincing style. However, this time my teaching was completely powerless.

As I made the trip to my hotel room, my thoughts drifted back to the conversation I’d had with the host evangelist some time earlier. It took place as I was asking to accompany him to this meeting. How strange his reply seemed to me at that time.

“John, anyone who teaches with me on the foreign field must have a breakthrough ministry.”

I asked, “What is a breakthrough ministry?” He asked one of his associates to explain. This kind brother told me it was absolutely necessary for the anointing of the Holy Spirit to accompany the teaching of the Word of God, in third-world nations. There had to be signs and wonders following, or the biblical concepts we taught would not break through their traditions.

I must confess, at the time I thought they were trying to impress me with their deep spirituality. How foolish it was of  me to ignore their warnings. That night in my hotel room, I understood perfectly well what they were trying to tell me.

We had all preached the gospel that day. The only difference was, the others had preached with the powerful anointing of the Holy Spirit, while I had only given out facts, figures, and Bible information. They had shaken the place with the signs and wonders that accompanied their words, while the only thing I had shaken was my confidence.

Needless to say, my first night in Africa was a living hell. Try as I might, I could not fall asleep. I was in a strange land, ten time zones away from home. However, it was not jet lag that kept me awake that night. I knew exactly what it was—the realization of my lack of power.

That first night was filled with repenting and praying and more repenting. I tossed and turned, but nothing helped relieve the pain I felt in my heart. The whole night passed without even a wink of sleep.

Brother John was at our church . . . and I gave to the ministry….

My prayer was for God to give me the job He wanted me to have until my [own] new business [became] profitable. At the Tuesday evening service, Brother John anointed the written prayers and the congregation with oil. At that time, I received a Word from the Lord that my job and well-being were provided for.

The Lord had led me to send an Easter card to my previous boss at IBM. He had retired and purchased a multi-million dollar business in New York. The next week I got a call from this man to thank me for the card, and after asking about me, he offered me a job for the amount I wanted to make. My annual salary is . . .

exactly one hundredfold of my memorial pledge to Brother John’s ministry.

Facing the Second Day

As the sun began to rise on Wednesday morning, it was my second day in Africa, and I was totally aware of my spiritual bankruptcy.

Without exaggeration, I can honestly say the only teaching I have ever done that was worse than my first day in Africa was my teaching on the second day. To say it stank would be a compliment. However, no matter how bad it was, I was fully aware that everything in my life was about to change. This time I didn’t leave the platform in despair. Instead, I left it with great anticipation. I now had a deep inner feeling that the next time I stepped into the pulpit, the power of God would be abundantly upon me.

[We wanted] to go to Mexico on a short term missions trip but  did not have the finances.         We made a $100  seed offering to you and trusted God……. and tried to sell whatever we could to raise the money.

When the due date came, nothing had sold and we still did not have the finances and had to tell the leaders to withdraw our names. Four hours later someone called and asked if we were going, and we said no. He asked if it was because of finances and apologized because God had told him to pay for our plane tickets. Then within a week my unsaved parents stopped in and . . . gave me an envelope. . . . [It] contained $300 US which was exactly what we needed for spending money in Mexico, and within days of this Julie’s brother. . . gave us $100 Cdn for our Canadian expenses. GLORY!!!

Chapter 2 : The Greatest Night of My Life

 

At the close of the second day’s teaching, I once again went directly to my room. I immediately dropped to my knees and began praying with all my might. Again and again I approached the throne of God. My request was the same each time. “Oh, God! Give me a breakthrough ministry! I must have signs and wonders following the words you give me to speak.”

I will never forget that night in Abba, Nigeria, because something totally outside the scope of my experience took place. God visibly manifested Himself to me. Out of a bright, concentrated light, He began to speak with an audible voice. With clear, distinct words, He said, “John, I have heard your prayer, and I am going to give you the breakthrough ministry  you have asked for. I am making it a conditional anointing. If you want it to remain, you must strictly obey me in the operation of it.”

I quickly answered, “Yes, Lord. I will do whatever you say.”

Then He said, “I have set you apart for the purpose of bringing the end-time message of biblical economics to my Church. From this day on, you will specialize in teaching this message.” He went on to say that at the end of my teaching session the next day, I was to take up a very special offering. He promised He would manifest Himself in it with signs and wonders.

About two years ago, I was in debt for $148,000 that I owed in rental property, a personal loan, and credit cards. You were ministering . . . about the hundredfold return, so I decided to plant  a $3,000 seed. I was in trouble anyway.

Two people approached me to buy all of my rental property even though I had not put these properties up for sale. I sold everything,

paid all the bills, and purchased a car. I came out with $25,000 in the bank and I own two houses that are paid for. I thank the Lord for your ministry.

Two Big Mistakes 

Our Lord went on to make a statement I had never heard before. It was so revolutionary that it sounded unscriptural. He said, “I usually cannot multiply back to my children the money they give me.”

I asked, “Why not, Lord? Your Word says you will.”

“John, I know what my Word says. However, I cannot multiply back any offering that is improperly given.

“My children usually make two mistakes when they give to me. First, they seldom give the exact amount I tell them to give. John, tell my people I cannot multiply back to them that which they give in disobedience. If I did, I would show honor to their disobedience.

“There is a second thing my people do that stops me from multiplying most of their offerings back to them. My children usually give without expecting anything specific back in return. John, the multiplication of money back to the giver is a miracle, and my miracles operate by faith. When my people give without expecting anything back, they have not given in faith.”

He then repeated the words of the Apostle Paul. He said, “John remember, ‘faith is the substance of things hoped for…’ (Hebrews 11:1). It is impossible to give to me in faith if you expect nothing in return. Tell my people to always follow these two rules when they give:

“1. Always give the amount I tell them to give.”

“2. Always give, expecting to receive their offering multiplied back to them.”

“Tell them they must give their offerings in obedience and faith!”

The Hundredfold Return

The next thing the Lord said has become the most powerful part of my ministry. It is bigger than even I can understand. He said, “John, I am going to attach signs and wonders to your ministry. They will begin tomorrow. From now on, when you teach my people these two principles, you will lead them in giving a special offering. Clearly direct anyone who cannot be totally obedient not to participate!

“1. They must give the exact amount I tell them to give.

“2. They must expect to receive their offering multiplied back to them.

“Then they must do one more thing. They must join their faith with yours, believing their offering will be multiplied back to them one hundredfold.”

“The prayer you speak over the offering must not be a long prayer. Just lay your hands on the offering and speak that it be multiplied one hundredfold. Clearly speak these words in the name of Jesus. That will be your only responsibility in the miracle. My part will be to miraculously release  the  hundredfold return to those who obey.

Watch for the Obedient Ones

“John, you must carefully watch for those who receive the hundredfold. I will use these obedient ones to encourage you and others in the hundredfold increase.”

Then as quickly as the light had appeared, the presence of the Lord lifted from the room. I was alone, but I wasn’t lonely, for the powerful anointing of the hundredfold return was now upon me.

I have been a consistent tither since May 1993, but in early June a financial problem took place. I did not have money for my rent and electric bill, but this particular Sunday morning I had set aside

. . . $5 for a hundredfold offering. I worked that afternoon and was very tired when I decided to attend the evening service.

Our pastor asked everyone who was unemployed or struggling with their job to please stand. I had a job, but it was definitely a struggle. I did not want to stand, but the Holy Spirit told me to ‘Stand up, girl!’ I was the last person to stand just as I heard our pastor announce a special offering for all who were standing. After the offertory, she got back up and announced that the Holy Spirit was leading her to give everyone standing $500. I almost missed my hundredfold because I felt too tired to stand. Faithfulness in giving and obedience go hand in hand.

Chapter 3 : Manifestation of the Hundredfold

Dawn was once again coming to the city. It was Thursday, my third day in Africa. However, it was a different kind of day. This was my first day with God’s new breakthrough miracle anointing.

The New Anointing

When I stepped up to the pulpit that morning, there was no great anticipation. Then as soon as I began to speak, the mood quickly changed. It was evident that something had happened. It was the new anointing God had given me. Each word of my message was filled with power. It was absolutely wonderful. I had taken a drink from the cup of God’s new anointing, and it was exhilarating!

As I brought my message to a close, the high praises of God filled the room. Then I boldly said, “God has instructed me to take a special offering this morning.” I told them who would be allowed to give in this offering. It would be only those who gave the exact amount God told them to give. Not only that, but they would have to give with full expectation of receiving their offering multiplied back to them one hundredfold.

When I was sure everyone understood these two requirements, I told the people there would be a miraculous manifestation of the hundredfold increase to all those who obediently joined their faith with mine. Once again, I clearly explained to them that the miracle would happen only for those who gave in strict obedience and faith.

Overflowing Offering Plates

The ushers had barely started collecting the offering when the regular offering containers were filled to capacity. What a miracle! Ninety percent of the congregation had not yet given, and the offering plates were full and overflowing.

Without having to speak a word, a young man jumped to his feet and went to the school dormitory. In a moment he returned with two pillow cases. Enthusiasm began to grow as row after row of obedient donors placed their money into the jumbo offering bags. After an extra long time, the ushers came forward with the two pillow cases almost full.

Wait, Don’t Pray

I asked the people to rise and extend their hands toward the offering. As I opened my mouth to begin the prayer, a loud voice from the back of the room cried, “Wait! Don’t pray!” From the left side of the room, I saw a man moving quickly toward the front. To my amazement, he started putting more money into the bag. As he emptied his pockets, I could hear him saying, “Wait, Brother John. I did not give the amount of money God told me to give.”

Once again I bowed my head to pray. As soon as my eyes were closed, I heard another voice cry out. “Wait! Don’t pray!” Each time I tried to pray, more and more people came forward crying, “Wait, Brother John. Don’t pray. I haven’t given what God told me to give.”

Stop Giving

Finally, the evangelist rose to his feet and extended both hands toward the congregation. With a strong voice he shouted, “Stop the giving!” In all the years of my ministry, I had never heard anyone give the order to stop an offering.

Without hesitation, I closed my eyes and spoke these powerful words: “Be multiplied one hundredfold in the name of Jesus.”

The engine in my wife’s car was running very weakly. I wanted to buy her a new car. I thought a new car would cost about $15,000, so I gave $150 into the hundredfold offering. Three weeks later,  my mom and dad transferred $17,000 into our checking account  as a gift so we could buy a car.

It is a new . . . Saturn station wagon. The price with tax was just over $17,000. Nancy has a new car and no payments!

The Devil Arises 

As I walked away, the joy of the previous moment instantly left me. The presence of the Holy Spirit simply vanished. All I could feel was the presence of evil all around me. My ride back to the hotel was a horrible experience. Brakes failed, accidents almost happened. However, I hardly noticed the events of the journey. For my attention was now fully taken by the devil as he lashed out foul accusations at me. He told me the evangelist would never invite me to go anywhere with him again. He said I had tricked the people into giving more than they should. He  told me that because of the excessive amount the people had given, many would have to go without food, lodging, or transportation. He repeatedly accused me of exploiting them. Sometime during the night, Satan convinced me that I had given the people nothing more than false hope. The only thing I could pray was that God would quickly take me out of Africa.

After another sleepless night, there came a knock on my door. Reluctantly I opened it to see my driver standing there  with a broad smile on his face. His only words to me were, “Come see!”

As I followed him to the front door of the hotel, I must admit that all I really wanted to see was my home back in the United States.

When we came to the parking area, my driver led me to a brand new car. I immediately said, “Thank God, they finally got me a decent car to ride in!”

The Car Is Mine

Then my driver said, “Brother John, you don’t understand. God gave me this car last night. It is my miracle hundredfold release! It happened just the way you said it would. I gave exactly what God told me to give! Then I believed with all my heart for the miracle hundredfold release. Brother John, I’m a witness. The hundredfold release really works!”

My faith immediately skyrocketed! The miracle hundredfold release had actually happened to this man, and it happened in less than twenty-four hours!

On the way to the meeting, he eagerly told me of the previous night’s visit to his rich uncle’s house. The uncle was a Muslim politician. Before that visit, he had never shown any real interest in his Christian nephew. However, that night  things were much different. After a wonderful evening of fellowship, his uncle totally surprised the young man by giving him the new car. It was an absolute gift. There were no strings attached. The hundredfold release had miraculously transferred the wealth of that lost uncle into the hands of this obedient Christian. It happened exactly the way the Bible said it would.

… the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the just.

Proverbs 13:22

 

My Driver Testifies

Before that year was over, my driver, his wife, and their two children came to the United States. He stood before our church and gave a personal testimony of his instant miracle hundredfold release. He also brought with him a list of the names of many other Nigerians who also received the miracle hundredfold release in the Abba, Nigeria meeting.

Since that marvelous day in Africa, I have ministered the miracle hundredfold release across America. It has also abundantly manifested in Asia, Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, Europe, Mexico, New Zealand, Scandinavia, South Africa, as well as South America. Millions have witnessed it on national television. Every time I speak this message, the result is the same. God miraculously blesses with the hundredfold release. I am continually meeting people in airports, at conventions, and on the street who say they have received the miracle hundredfold release when I prayed over their offering. Everywhere the report is the same. Praise  the Lord, it worked for me!

I overnighted a check for $5,000 to your ministry….

Very  late  one  evening, while reading……….. The  Wealth  of the

Wicked… I determined. . . to give $25,000 this month for the construction of our Bible school for pastors in Kitale, Kenya….

Though I hadn’t actually given the money yet. . . I knew I had gotten [God’s] attention.

This morning, my Japanese associate told me that the Japan side had decided last night to give us another, totally unplanned and unexpected $3,000,000 to invest. This is truly a miracle!

The total of $30,000 ($5,000 + $25,000)… touched by your ministry and hundredfold anointing, became $3,000,000 within twenty-four hours of getting God’s attention (Sunday midnight until Monday midnight). We received God’s hundredfold return, through your anointing, literally during the first day, even though the majority of the commitment hadn’t even been paid yet.

I know that you and your wife have paid a dear price to pioneer this truth and carry this revelation. I want to express our deep

appreciation for paving the way for us.

Gifts Differ

It is always interesting to hear the different amounts God tells  people  to  give.  God  told  one  person  in  Florida  to give $20,000. A man from Los Angeles gave $10,000. A businessman from the Philippines, as well as a farmer in Australia, each gave $100,000. God tells many to give $1,000. Some folks give five or ten dollars; others give $100. The amounts vary greatly. However, from person after person, the report is the same. “It worked for me, Brother John. I gave the exact amount God spoke into my heart, and I received my miracle hundredfold release shortly after you prayed.”

Some Give More Than Once

Recently something interesting came to my attention. Some folks are testifying that they have given into the miracle hundredfold release more than once. They are saying, “Brother John, I didn’t give the amount God said to give the first time, and just like you said, nothing happened. Then, I gave again. This time I gave the exact amount God told me to give, and the miracle hundredfold release has manifested.” Many have compared it to the gold coin Simon Peter found in the fish’s mouth (Matthew 17:24-27). They say it’s MIRACLE MONEY!

As I said before, I hesitated writing this testimony. Then, something quite unexpected happened. I received a most important phone call. It was my driver from Nigeria. He was the first man to ever receive the hundredfold release through my ministry. He told me he was on a short visit to the United States and felt strongly impressed of the Lord to call and say hello. While he was on the phone, he once again told me about the miracle automobile he had received through the hundredfold release.

When I hung up the phone, I knew it was God’s way of confirming that it was now time to write the MIRACLE MONEY booklet.

It’s Always the Same

It is important to note that the people who  receive MIRACLE MONEY through the hundredfold release always do the same two things. First, they give the exact amount God tells them to give. Second, they believe God for the hundredfold increase.

….other [seed] fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that . . . brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred[fold].

Mark 4:8

 

Chapter 4 : What Hundredfold Means

Ever since that wonderful day in Abba, Nigeria, God has used me to manifest the hundredfold release. In the early years  of the operation of this miracle, people would ask, “What does hundredfold really mean? Is it one hundred times? Is it 100 percent? Is it double? Tell us, Brother John, what does it mean?”

For a long time the only answer I could give was that I didn’t know exactly how much it was. However, I did know it was a very large increase.

Best Possible

Recently God completed His revelation to me in the miracle of the hundredfold release by giving me specific information about the meaning of hundredfold.

It is easy to understand what thirtyfold and sixtyfold mean. Thirtyfold means thirty times, and sixtyfold simply means sixty times. However, hundredfold is much different.

Hundredfold is significant, for one hundred is a unique number. It is the only number that can represent every other number. It also means complete, or the best possible.

In the Classroom

In the realm of the classroom, one hundred represents the best possible score on an examination. If you took an exam with one hundred questions, the best possible score would be one hundred. If the test had twenty-five questions, the best possible grade would not be twenty-five. It would still be one hundred. Let’s go one step further. If a test had two hundred questions on it, the best possible grade would not be two hundred. It would still be one hundred.

In Agriculture

Let’s look at the agricultural realm. When planted in good ground, an apple seed will increase far more than one hundred times. One apple seed will produce one apple tree. Please remember, you planted an apple seed. So, you must count the increase by the number of apple seeds the tree produces. To properly determine this yield, it is necessary to count all the seeds the apple tree brings forth in its lifetime.

As nearly as I can determine, the average apple contains about five seeds. This being true, we would have to conclude  that if hundredfold always meant one hundred times, a hundredfold apple seed would bring forth only twenty apples. The mathematics to prove this are as follows. Twenty apples times five apple seeds in each apple, equals one hundred apple seeds. However, we know that apple trees live many years and can produce 5,000 or more apples. According to this information, in the case of apples, hundredfold could easily  equal 25,000 times (five seeds per apple times 5,000 apples = 25,000 apple seeds). It is plain to see from this illustration that hundredfold can mean many times more than one hundred times.

Let’s look at another illustration. This time let’s take our example from the realm of livestock reproduction. If  hundredfold had to strictly mean one hundred times or more, a cattle rancher would never be able to experience the hundredfold return from a cow.

Think about it. The average cow produces only one calf per year. Therefore, if a cow had to bring forth one hundred calves,  it would take one hundred years. That would be much longer than the cow’s natural life-expectancy. As I understand it, a good breeder cow will produce about nine calves during its productive lifetime. If she has more than nine, she is considered exceptional. This being true, the best possible yield from a cow would be nine to thirteen calves. Therefore, hundredfold among cattle would equal much less than one hundred times.

From these two illustrations, you can see that hundredfold can be more than a hundred times, or less than a hundred times. Therefore, it can be concluded that hundredfold means the best possible yield under the circumstances.

After reading your book, I was open to the Holy Spirit’s promptings and began putting into practice the biblical principles of prosperity.

The Lord turned a $1,000 faith pledge into $10,000 within one week. I was able to pay bills, set aside some money for my daughter’s college education, and pay my pledge. I will never

look at the circumstances again, but to God who can do all things.

Praise God, for He is moving in our finances. Thank you for your teaching.

Chapter 5 : Your Hundredfold Release

It is now your turn to personally experience the hundredfold release. You know that it has already happened for thousands of people just like you. This knowledge causes a powerful biblical principle to be activated on your behalf. For if God has released the hundredfold return to others, surely He is willing to release it to you.

Then Peter . . . said, Of a truth . . . God is no respecter of persons.

Acts 10:34

Please notice that I have placed a special envelope in the back of this booklet. It has a simple information flap on it. You must now remove the envelope and fill in the information requested. Please do not write an amount in the space marked “God  told me to give $            for the hundredfold release!” You will not fill this in until after I lead you in a special prayer asking God to tell you the exact amount you will be giving.

Bank Cards

Now focus your attention on the part of the envelope flap that refers to bank card (credit card) donations. This is provided for the convenience of those who prefer to use their bank cards in giving. If you choose to use this method, be sure that you accurately copy your credit card number, placing it on the appropriate line. It is also important that you carefully write the expiration date of your card in the space provided.

When you have finished filling in the envelope flap (every space   except   the   one   marked   “God told me to give $                     for the  hundredfold release”),  you  are  ready to pray.

Before beginning your prayer, get into a comfortable position. When you feel peaceful, pray this prayer (out loud if possible):

“Dear Lord Jesus, I know you are the God of  the hundredfold release. I know you are going to speak to my spirit today. The amount you tell me to give will be the most important amount I have ever given, because it will be the amount you want me to give for my hundredfold release.

“Lord, I am ready to hear your voice. Speak your amount into my heart. Please help me to keep my natural mind from interfering with the amount you tell me to give. Lord, I promise to give the full amount you say. I firmly join my faith with Brother John’s, and trust you for my miracle hundredfold  release.

“I am now ready to act. All you have to do is speak, and I will obey! I ask this in the name of Jesus, amen.”

God Speaks

Now, without moving about, listen in your spirit for the voice of God. Don’t have any preconceived ideas as to how His voice will come. Most of the time He speaks in more of a whisper than a shout. When God spoke to Elijah, He didn’t speak like a great, boisterous wind. Neither did He speak with an earth-shaking voice, nor by a raging fire. God spoke quietly to Elijah, in a whisper. The marginal reading of some King James Bibles says God spoke to Elijah “… in a delicate whisper  as the breeze among the leaves” (1 Kings 19:12).

The moment you know the amount God wants you to give, start thanking Him for hearing your prayer. Immediately write the amount you are to give on the flap of the envelope in the space marked, “God told me to give $                                                                      for the hundredfold release.” Don’t hesitate even one minute. Write the amount down immediately. You know that Satan usually moves when you hesitate to do what God says.

The next thing to do is make out your check, money order, or credit card information. Now, enclose your offering and seal the envelope. Place the appropriate postage stamp on it, and immediately mail it to me so I can pray the hundredfold prayer over your offering. Don’t delay. Remember, hesitation gives rise to unbelief, and unbelief always stops the hundredfold release.

I have now completed the thing God told me to do with the MIRACLE MONEY booklet. Now, all I can do is prayerfully await your obedient response which will bring you the manifestation of your own hundredfold release.

I will gladly send the MIRACLE MONEY booklet (at my own expense) to anyone in the U.S.A., England, Australia, or Canada. Just give me the names and addresses of up to fifteen people, and I’ll send the MIRACLE MONEY booklet to them. You provide the names and addresses. I’ll do the rest.

… believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

2 Chronicles 20:20
