  • - WELCOME TO GOSPEL TRUTH
  • 00:00:00.230 --> 00:00:03.230
  • WITH ANDREW WOMMACK,
  • 00:00:03.230 --> 00:00:05.020
  • A TEACHING MINISTRY THAT FOCUSES
  • 00:00:05.020 --> 00:00:06.250
  • ON GOD'S UNCONDITIONAL
  • 00:00:06.250 --> 00:00:08.090
  • > GOD LOVES YOU.
  • 00:00:10.120 --> 00:00:12.010
  • GOD WANTS TO BLESS YOU,
  • 00:00:12.010 --> 00:00:13.150
  • AND PROSPER YOU,
  • 00:00:13.150 --> 00:00:14.180
  • BUT YOU HAVE TO RESPOND
  • 00:00:14.180 --> 00:00:16.290
  • - I WAS ABLE TO TAKE THAT,
  • 00:00:18.050 --> 00:00:20.090
  • BELIEVING IT, AND MOVE AHEAD
  • 00:00:20.090 --> 00:00:22.180
  • AND OPERATE IN GIVING
  • 00:00:22.180 --> 00:00:24.170
  • BELIEVING FOR A HARVEST,
  • 00:00:24.170 --> 00:00:25.270
  • AND GETTING HARVEST EVERY TIME.
  • 00:00:25.270 --> 00:00:27.230
  • ONCE I DID THAT,
  • 00:00:27.230 --> 00:00:28.120
  • WELCOME TO OUR TUESDAY'S
  • 00:00:32.050 --> 00:00:33.060
  • BROADCAST OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH.
  • 00:00:33.060 --> 00:00:35.110
  • TODAY I'M CONTINUING A SERIES
  • 00:00:35.110 --> 00:00:37.040
  • THAT I JUST STARTED YESTERDAY
  • 00:00:37.040 --> 00:00:39.110
  • AND I'M TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:00:39.110 --> 00:00:40.120
  • FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP.
  • 00:00:40.120 --> 00:00:42.280
  • YOU KNOW, MOST PEOPLE WILL TALK
  • 00:00:42.280 --> 00:00:43.280
  • ABOUT PROSPERITY,
  • 00:00:43.280 --> 00:00:45.080
  • FINANCIAL PROSPERITY
  • 00:00:45.080 --> 00:00:47.010
  • OR SOMETHING;
  • 00:00:47.010 --> 00:00:47.170
  • I'VE INTENTIONALLY ENTITLED THIS
  • 00:00:47.170 --> 00:00:49.250
  • STEWARDSHIP.
  • 00:00:49.250 --> 00:00:50.240
  • I HAVE A BOOK ON THIS,
  • 00:00:50.240 --> 00:00:51.260
  • STUDY GUIDE, DVDs, CDs.
  • 00:00:51.260 --> 00:00:54.030
  • I'VE GOT IT IN SPANISH,
  • 00:00:54.030 --> 00:00:55.260
  • AND WE ALSO HAVE A DVD THAT HAS
  • 00:00:55.260 --> 00:00:58.210
  • SIX TESTIMONIES OF PEOPLE
  • 00:00:58.210 --> 00:01:00.100
  • ON HERE WHO HAVE SEEN PROSPERITY
  • 00:01:00.100 --> 00:01:02.080
  • COME THROUGH DOING IT GOD'S WAY.
  • 00:01:02.080 --> 00:01:04.180
  • AND ON MY PROGRAM YESTERDAY,
  • 00:01:04.180 --> 00:01:06.040
  • WHAT I WAS DOING WAS SAYING THAT
  • 00:01:06.040 --> 00:01:08.190
  • TO ME THE VERY FIRST STEP
  • 00:01:08.190 --> 00:01:11.190
  • IN RECEIVING PROSPERITY
  • 00:01:11.190 --> 00:01:13.220
  • GOD'S WAY IS TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:01:13.220 --> 00:01:16.040
  • THAT WE ARE A STEWARD.
  • 00:01:16.040 --> 00:01:17.090
  • THAT MEANS THAT IT IS NOT
  • 00:01:17.090 --> 00:01:19.010
  • OUR MONEY.
  • 00:01:19.010 --> 00:01:20.090
  • WE ARE MANAGING THE MONEY
  • 00:01:20.090 --> 00:01:22.190
  • THAT GOD GIVES US,
  • 00:01:22.190 --> 00:01:25.020
  • AND DID YOU KNOW VERY FEW PEOPLE
  • 00:01:25.020 --> 00:01:26.160
  • SEE IT THAT WAY.
  • 00:01:26.160 --> 00:01:27.070
  • EVEN CHRISTIANS;
  • 00:01:27.070 --> 00:01:28.060
  • VERY, VERY, VERY FEW CHRISTIANS
  • 00:01:28.210 --> 00:01:31.210
  • SEE THAT THEIR RESOURCES
  • 00:01:31.210 --> 00:01:34.020
  • E...ARE GOD'S.
  • 00:01:34.020 --> 00:01:35.160
  • THEY LOOK AT IT AS,
  • 00:01:35.160 --> 00:01:36.120
  • THIS IS MY MONEY, I EARNED THIS,
  • 00:01:36.120 --> 00:01:38.280
  • I WILL DO WHAT I WANT TO DO
  • 00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:41.010
  • WITH IT.
  • 00:01:41.010 --> 00:01:41.250
  • AND I TELL YOU,
  • 00:01:41.250 --> 00:01:42.110
  • IF THAT'S THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:01:42.110 --> 00:01:43.180
  • THAT YOU HAVE,
  • 00:01:43.180 --> 00:01:45.040
  • WELL, THEN WHEN YOU GET
  • 00:01:45.040 --> 00:01:46.000
  • INTO A PROBLEM, IT'S UP TO YOU
  • 00:01:46.000 --> 00:01:48.000
  • TO SOLVE IT.
  • 00:01:48.000 --> 00:01:48.160
  • IT'S UP TO YOU TO EARN IT.
  • 00:01:48.160 --> 00:01:49.280
  • IT'S UP...ALL OF THE PRESSURE
  • 00:01:49.280 --> 00:01:51.070
  • COMES UPON YOU.
  • 00:01:51.070 --> 00:01:52.290
  • BUT IF YOU COULD START SEEING
  • 00:01:52.290 --> 00:01:54.080
  • YOURSELF AS A STEWARD
  • 00:01:54.080 --> 00:01:56.190
  • OF GOD'S RESOURCES...
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:01:58.020
  • IT'S GOD THAT GAVE YOU
  • 00:01:58.020 --> 00:01:59.050
  • YOUR HEALTH,
  • 00:01:59.050 --> 00:01:59.290
  • IT'S GOD THAT GAVE YOU
  • 00:01:59.290 --> 00:02:01.000
  • YOUR TALENTS,
  • 00:02:01.000 --> 00:02:01.230
  • IT'S GOD THAT HAS CAUSED US
  • 00:02:01.230 --> 00:02:03.190
  • TO BE BIRTHED AT THE MOST
  • 00:02:03.190 --> 00:02:05.050
  • PROSPEROUS TIME IN THE HISTORY
  • 00:02:05.050 --> 00:02:07.020
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:02:07.020 --> 00:02:08.050
  • WE HAVE OPPORTUNITIES
  • 00:02:08.050 --> 00:02:09.170
  • AND WITH THE FREEDOMS OF...
  • 00:02:09.170 --> 00:02:11.270
  • YOU KNOW, REPUBLICS, DEMOCRACY'S
  • 00:02:11.270 --> 00:02:14.100
  • AND THINGS LIKE THIS,
  • 00:02:14.100 --> 00:02:15.070
  • WE HAVE FREEDOMS TO PROSPER
  • 00:02:15.070 --> 00:02:17.070
  • AND TO DO THINGS
  • 00:02:17.070 --> 00:02:18.030
  • THAT PREVIOUS GENERATIONS
  • 00:02:18.030 --> 00:02:19.150
  • HAVE NEVER HAD.
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:20.190
  • WHETHER YOU REALIZE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:02:20.190 --> 00:02:22.070
  • GOD IS YOUR SOURCE.
  • 00:02:22.070 --> 00:02:23.290
  • GOD IS THE ONE WHO GIVES YOU
  • 00:02:23.290 --> 00:02:25.190
  • PROSPERITY, AND THE FIRST STEP
  • 00:02:26.170 --> 00:02:29.170
  • IN PROSPERING GOD'S WAY,
  • 00:02:29.170 --> 00:02:31.010
  • LIKE IT SAYS, OVER IN THE BOOK
  • 00:02:31.010 --> 00:02:32.030
  • OF PROVERBS,
  • 00:02:32.030 --> 00:02:32.240
  • WHERE THE BLESSING OF THE LORD,
  • 00:02:32.240 --> 00:02:35.020
  • IT MAKES RICH,
  • 00:02:35.020 --> 00:02:36.120
  • AND HE ADDS NO SORROW WITH IT.
  • 00:02:36.120 --> 00:02:38.150
  • IF YOU ARE GOING TO PROSPER
  • 00:02:38.150 --> 00:02:39.160
  • THE WAY THAT THE WORLD PROSPERS
  • 00:02:39.160 --> 00:02:41.130
  • THROUGH ALL OF YOUR TOIL,
  • 00:02:41.130 --> 00:02:43.070
  • AND EFFORT, AND THROUGH YOU
  • 00:02:43.070 --> 00:02:44.240
  • STABBING OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:02:44.240 --> 00:02:45.260
  • IN THE BACK,
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:46.220
  • AND PROMOTING YOURSELF,
  • 00:02:46.220 --> 00:02:48.050
  • AND TAKING ADVANTAGE
  • 00:02:48.050 --> 00:02:49.040
  • OF OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:02:49.040 --> 00:02:50.030
  • AND POSSIBLY LYING,
  • 00:02:50.030 --> 00:02:51.200
  • AND STEALING,
  • 00:02:51.200 --> 00:02:52.140
  • AND MANIPULATING,
  • 00:02:52.140 --> 00:02:53.130
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO DO
  • 00:02:53.130 --> 00:02:53.280
  • ALL OF THAT STUFF,
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:55.100
  • YOU CAN PROSPER,
  • 00:02:55.100 --> 00:02:57.000
  • BUT THERE'S CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:02:57.000 --> 00:02:58.020
  • YOU MIGHT WIND UP
  • 00:02:58.020 --> 00:02:58.290
  • IN A JAIL CELL.
  • 00:02:58.290 --> 00:02:59.260
  • YOU'RE GOING TO WIND UP
  • 00:02:59.260 --> 00:03:01.100
  • WITH HEART PROBLEMS
  • 00:03:01.100 --> 00:03:02.140
  • AND HEALTH PROBLEMS BECAUSE
  • 00:03:02.140 --> 00:03:03.240
  • YOU'RE UNDER SO MUCH STRESS.
  • 00:03:03.240 --> 00:03:05.240
  • THERE'S JUST A LOT OF SORROW
  • 00:03:05.240 --> 00:03:07.000
  • THAT COMES WITH IT
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:07.250
  • WHEN ALL OF THE RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:03:07.250 --> 00:03:09.150
  • IS ON YOUR BACK.
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:11.000
  • BUT WHEN YOU PROSPER GOD'S WAY,
  • 00:03:11.000 --> 00:03:12.270
  • HE WILL MAKE YOU RICH
  • 00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:14.130
  • AND HE WILL ADD NO SORROW
  • 00:03:14.130 --> 00:03:16.050
  • WITH IT.
  • 00:03:16.050 --> 00:03:17.130
  • SO, HOW DO YOU GET INTO
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:18.170
  • GOD'S SYSTEM OF PROSPERITY?
  • 00:03:18.170 --> 00:03:20.220
  • I'M GOING TO BE TEACHING ON THIS
  • 00:03:20.220 --> 00:03:21.270
  • AND I'VE GOT A LOT OF THINGS
  • 00:03:21.270 --> 00:03:22.250
  • TO SAY,
  • 00:03:22.250 --> 00:03:23.120
  • BUT I BELIEVE IT BEGINS WITH YOU
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:25.280
  • RECOGNIZING GOD IS YOUR SOURCE.
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:29.060
  • GOD IS THE ONE WHO PROSPERS YOU,
  • 00:03:29.170 --> 00:03:32.170
  • AND I'M TELLING YOU, MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:03:32.170 --> 00:03:34.170
  • DON'T THINK ABOUT PROSPERITY
  • 00:03:34.170 --> 00:03:35.260
  • THIS WAY.
  • 00:03:35.260 --> 00:03:36.140
  • MOST PEOPLE, THEY ARE SCHEMING,
  • 00:03:36.140 --> 00:03:39.000
  • THEY ARE CONNIVING.
  • 00:03:39.000 --> 00:03:39.240
  • THEY ARE LOOKING FOR THINGS
  • 00:03:39.240 --> 00:03:41.130
  • THAT THEY CAN DO,
  • 00:03:41.130 --> 00:03:42.150
  • AND I'M NOT SAYING THAT YOU
  • 00:03:42.150 --> 00:03:43.190
  • DON'T COOPERATE WITH GOD.
  • 00:03:43.190 --> 00:03:45.280
  • YOU'VE GOT TO DO
  • 00:03:45.280 --> 00:03:46.200
  • WHAT GOD LEADS YOU TO DO,
  • 00:03:46.200 --> 00:03:48.070
  • AND I'M GOING TO BE SHARING
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:49.260
  • A LOT OF THESE THINGS,
  • 00:03:49.260 --> 00:03:50.220
  • BUT YOU NEED TO GET THE MINDSET.
  • 00:03:50.220 --> 00:03:52.270
  • IT'S A...IT'S A PHILOSOPHY,
  • 00:03:52.270 --> 00:03:54.230
  • IT'S A PARADIGM,
  • 00:03:54.230 --> 00:03:55.210
  • IT'S A WAY OF LOOKING AT THINGS,
  • 00:03:55.210 --> 00:03:58.100
  • TO SAY, GOD, YOU'RE MY SOURCE.
  • 00:03:58.100 --> 00:04:01.010
  • GOD, YOU'RE...YOU'RE THE ONE
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:02.110
  • WHO'S GIVEN ME EVERYTHING
  • 00:04:02.110 --> 00:04:03.180
  • THAT I'VE GOT.
  • 00:04:03.180 --> 00:04:04.200
  • HOW DO YOU WANT ME TO PROSPER?
  • 00:04:04.200 --> 00:04:07.030
  • HOW DO YOU WANT ME TO MANAGE
  • 00:04:07.030 --> 00:04:08.280
  • THE MONEY THAT YOU'VE GIVEN ME?
  • 00:04:08.280 --> 00:04:11.040
  • AND DID YOU KNOW WHEN YOU GET
  • 00:04:11.040 --> 00:04:11.290
  • THAT ATTITUDE,
  • 00:04:11.290 --> 00:04:13.090
  • THAT THE EYES OF THE LORD
  • 00:04:14.150 --> 00:04:15.280
  • RUN TO AND FRO THROUGHOUT
  • 00:04:15.280 --> 00:04:17.240
  • THE WHOLE EARTH,
  • 00:04:17.240 --> 00:04:19.170
  • SEEKING TO SHEW HIMSELF STRONG
  • 00:04:19.180 --> 00:04:22.180
  • IN BEHALF OF THOSE WHO ARE
  • 00:04:22.180 --> 00:04:23.230
  • PERFECT IN HIS SIGHT.
  • 00:04:23.230 --> 00:04:25.100
  • AND PERFECT THERE DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:04:25.100 --> 00:04:26.120
  • THAT YOU NEVER SIN
  • 00:04:26.120 --> 00:04:27.150
  • OR YOU NEVER MAKE A MISTAKE.
  • 00:04:27.150 --> 00:04:28.280
  • GOD HASN'T GOT ANYBODY
  • 00:04:28.280 --> 00:04:30.070
  • WHO DOES THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:04:30.070 --> 00:04:31.240
  • ALL OF US HAVE FALLEN,
  • 00:04:31.240 --> 00:04:33.040
  • ALL OF US MAKE MISTAKES,
  • 00:04:33.040 --> 00:04:34.180
  • BUT WHEN YOU GET THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:04:34.180 --> 00:04:36.020
  • THAT, GOD, I'M HERE FOR YOU,
  • 00:04:36.020 --> 00:04:38.040
  • I WANT TO GLORIFY YOU,
  • 00:04:38.040 --> 00:04:40.200
  • I WANT TO USE THE RESOURCES
  • 00:04:40.200 --> 00:04:42.190
  • THAT YOU'VE GIVEN ME
  • 00:04:42.190 --> 00:04:43.210
  • TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR WILL
  • 00:04:43.210 --> 00:04:45.220
  • HERE ON THIS EARTH.
  • 00:04:45.220 --> 00:04:46.250
  • DEUTERONOMY, CHAPTER 8,
  • 00:04:46.250 --> 00:04:48.040
  • VERSE 18, SAYS,
  • 00:04:48.040 --> 00:04:49.090
  • YOU SHALL REMEMBER
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:50.060
  • THE LORD YOUR GOD:
  • 00:04:50.060 --> 00:04:51.030
  • FOR IT IS HE THAT GIVES YOU
  • 00:04:51.030 --> 00:04:52.160
  • POWER TO GET WEALTH,
  • 00:04:52.160 --> 00:04:55.010
  • THAT HE MIGHT ESTABLISH HIS
  • 00:04:55.010 --> 00:04:56.140
  • COVENANT AS HE SWARE
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:04:57.270
  • UNTO YOUR FATHERS,
  • 00:04:57.270 --> 00:04:58.240
  • AS IT IS THIS DAY.
  • 00:04:58.240 --> 00:05:00.070
  • GOD GAVE YOU POWER
  • 00:05:00.070 --> 00:05:02.150
  • TO GET WEALTH.
  • 00:05:02.150 --> 00:05:03.030
  • HE DOESN'T GIVE YOU WEALTH
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:04.240
  • SPECIFICALLY,
  • 00:05:04.240 --> 00:05:05.180
  • BUT HE GAVE YOU THE POWER,
  • 00:05:05.180 --> 00:05:06.290
  • THE ANOINTING,
  • 00:05:06.290 --> 00:05:07.220
  • THE ABILITIES,
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:08.200
  • ALL OF YOUR TALENTS.
  • 00:05:08.200 --> 00:05:10.050
  • GOD IS THE SOURCE OF THIS,
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:12.000
  • AND WHY DID HE DO THIS?
  • 00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:13.030
  • HE GAVE YOU THIS POWER SO THAT
  • 00:05:13.030 --> 00:05:14.290
  • HE COULD ESTABLISH HIS COVENANT.
  • 00:05:15.070 --> 00:05:18.070
  • GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE
  • 00:05:18.070 --> 00:05:19.280
  • AND IT'S NOT FOR YOU TO JUST
  • 00:05:19.280 --> 00:05:21.060
  • GET ALL YOU CAN,
  • 00:05:21.060 --> 00:05:22.190
  • THEN CAN ALL YOU GET,
  • 00:05:22.190 --> 00:05:24.030
  • AND THEN YOU SIT ON YOUR CAN
  • 00:05:24.030 --> 00:05:26.100
  • AND TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
  • 00:05:26.100 --> 00:05:27.240
  • THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:05:27.240 --> 00:05:29.200
  • SAD TO SAY, THAT IS THE DREAM
  • 00:05:29.200 --> 00:05:31.250
  • OF MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:05:31.250 --> 00:05:33.050
  • AND THEY JUST LOOK AT FINANCES
  • 00:05:33.050 --> 00:05:35.030
  • ALL ABOUT THEM TO GET
  • 00:05:35.030 --> 00:05:36.140
  • A BIGGER HOUSE,
  • 00:05:36.140 --> 00:05:37.070
  • A BIGGER CAR, AND AGAIN,
  • 00:05:37.070 --> 00:05:38.270
  • GOD IS CERTAINLY NOT AGAINST
  • 00:05:38.270 --> 00:05:40.080
  • ALL OF THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:05:40.080 --> 00:05:41.050
  • GOD IS EL SHADDAI
  • 00:05:41.050 --> 00:05:43.000
  • AND NOT EL CHEAPO.
  • 00:05:43.000 --> 00:05:44.190
  • HE DOESN'T MIND YOU HAVING
  • 00:05:44.190 --> 00:05:45.290
  • NICE THINGS.
  • 00:05:45.290 --> 00:05:46.200
  • GOD WANTS TO BLESS YOU.
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:48.190
  • I ACTUALLY HAD A MAN ONE TIME
  • 00:05:48.190 --> 00:05:50.000
  • WHO I WAS TALKING TO HIM ABOUT
  • 00:05:50.000 --> 00:05:51.260
  • HE HAD BLESSED ME SO MUCH;
  • 00:05:51.260 --> 00:05:53.110
  • HE HAD BOUGHT ME CARS,
  • 00:05:53.110 --> 00:05:55.020
  • HE HAD BOUGHT ME SUITS,
  • 00:05:55.020 --> 00:05:56.240
  • AND I SAID, I'M EMBARRASSED,
  • 00:05:56.240 --> 00:05:58.030
  • AND HE SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:05:58.030 --> 00:05:59.050
  • IF YOU AREN'T EMBARRASSED
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:06:01.120
  • AT THE LEVEL OF PROSPERITY
  • 00:06:01.120 --> 00:06:03.050
  • YOU LIVE IN,
  • 00:06:03.050 --> 00:06:03.250
  • THEN YOU HAVEN'T TAPPED INTO
  • 00:06:03.250 --> 00:06:05.010
  • GOD'S SYSTEM,
  • 00:06:05.010 --> 00:06:07.020
  • AND AT FIRST I WAS SHOCKED,
  • 00:06:07.020 --> 00:06:08.160
  • LIKE, NO.
  • 00:06:08.160 --> 00:06:09.180
  • BECAUSE, SEE, I WAS TAUGHT
  • 00:06:09.180 --> 00:06:10.180
  • THAT GOD WOULD WANT YOU
  • 00:06:10.180 --> 00:06:11.180
  • TO BE POOR;
  • 00:06:11.180 --> 00:06:12.170
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO JUST BARELY
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:14.050
  • GET BY AND THINGS LIKE THIS.
  • 00:06:14.050 --> 00:06:16.050
  • HE WAS SAYING THAT THERE WAS
  • 00:06:16.050 --> 00:06:17.050
  • AN ABUNDANCE,
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:18.000
  • AND THEN HE BEGAN TO START
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:18.220
  • TELLING ME HOW THAT GOD PAVES
  • 00:06:18.280 --> 00:06:21.280
  • HIS STREETS WITH GOLD IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:06:21.280 --> 00:06:24.190
  • GOD MAKES HIS FOUNDATIONS
  • 00:06:24.190 --> 00:06:26.150
  • OUT OF PEARLS,
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:27.230
  • AND THAT GOD DOES NOT MIND
  • 00:06:27.230 --> 00:06:29.100
  • BLESSING YOU,
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:29.260
  • AND THAT IF YOU REALLY BEGIN
  • 00:06:29.260 --> 00:06:31.050
  • TO TAP IN TO GOD'S SYSTEM,
  • 00:06:31.050 --> 00:06:33.070
  • GOD WILL PROSPER YOU
  • 00:06:33.070 --> 00:06:34.270
  • AND BLESS YOU MORE
  • 00:06:34.270 --> 00:06:36.000
  • THAN WHAT YOU COULD DO
  • 00:06:36.000 --> 00:06:36.260
  • ON YOUR OWN.
  • 00:06:36.260 --> 00:06:38.180
  • YOU KNOW, I'M AN EXAMPLE
  • 00:06:38.180 --> 00:06:39.190
  • OF THIS,
  • 00:06:39.190 --> 00:06:40.050
  • THAT WHEN...MANY YEARS AGO,
  • 00:06:40.050 --> 00:06:41.200
  • I THINK IT WAS IN 1988,
  • 00:06:41.210 --> 00:06:44.210
  • THAT I MOVED INTO THE HOUSE
  • 00:06:44.210 --> 00:06:45.240
  • THAT I LIVE IN RIGHT NOW
  • 00:06:45.240 --> 00:06:47.250
  • AND AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:06:47.250 --> 00:06:48.170
  • MAN, JAMIE AND I WERE STRUGGLING
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:50.090
  • FINANCIALLY,
  • 00:06:50.090 --> 00:06:51.020
  • WE DIDN'T HAVE VERY MUCH MONEY.
  • 00:06:51.020 --> 00:06:52.100
  • I HAD A V.A. LOAN WHERE I COULD
  • 00:06:52.100 --> 00:06:54.250
  • HAVE A ZERO DOWN LOAN
  • 00:06:54.250 --> 00:06:57.040
  • AND IF IT HADN'T HAVE BEEN
  • 00:06:57.040 --> 00:06:59.070
  • FOR THAT ZERO DOWN,
  • 00:06:59.070 --> 00:07:00.200
  • I WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET
  • 00:07:00.200 --> 00:07:01.200
  • ANYTHING, BUT EVEN WITH THAT
  • 00:07:01.200 --> 00:07:04.010
  • I ONLY QUALIFIED
  • 00:07:04.010 --> 00:07:05.050
  • FOR ABOUT $60.000.
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:07.050
  • I JUST DID NOT...I WAS NOT
  • 00:07:07.050 --> 00:07:09.050
  • IN A GOOD PLACE FINANCIALLY,
  • 00:07:09.050 --> 00:07:10.260
  • AND SO I WAS GOING TO GO GET
  • 00:07:10.260 --> 00:07:12.050
  • A MOBILE HOME AND STICK IT
  • 00:07:12.050 --> 00:07:14.160
  • ON THIS PROPERTY
  • 00:07:14.160 --> 00:07:15.100
  • THAT WE HAD BOUGHT,
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:16.210
  • NOT BECAUSE I WANTED
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:17.160
  • A MOBILE HOME,
  • 00:07:17.160 --> 00:07:18.040
  • BUT THAT'S ALL THAT WE COULD
  • 00:07:18.040 --> 00:07:19.030
  • AFFORD AND THAT'S WHAT I WAS
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:20.240
  • GOING TO DO.
  • 00:07:20.240 --> 00:07:21.100
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:07:21.100 --> 00:07:22.060
  • AS I TALKED ABOUT THIS
  • 00:07:22.060 --> 00:07:23.270
  • AND I WAS MENTIONING IT
  • 00:07:23.270 --> 00:07:25.000
  • AT CHURCH TO A GUY AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:27.150
  • YOU DON'T WANT A MOBILE HOME,
  • 00:07:27.150 --> 00:07:28.250
  • AND I SAID,
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:29.070
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT I WANT,
  • 00:07:29.070 --> 00:07:30.120
  • BUT I SAID, THAT'S JUST
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:31.070
  • WHERE I AM AT THE MOMENT,
  • 00:07:31.070 --> 00:07:32.150
  • THAT'S WHAT I CAN AFFORD.
  • 00:07:32.150 --> 00:07:34.070
  • HE SAYS, LOOK, HE SAYS,
  • 00:07:34.070 --> 00:07:35.060
  • I'M A CONTRACTOR; I'LL BUILD YOU
  • 00:07:35.060 --> 00:07:37.000
  • A HOUSE FOR $60.000,
  • 00:07:37.000 --> 00:07:38.220
  • AND I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:40.040
  • HOW MUCH HE SAVED ME.
  • 00:07:40.040 --> 00:07:41.060
  • IT WAS PROBABLY WORTH
  • 00:07:41.060 --> 00:07:42.110
  • ABOUT $120.000 WHEN I BUILT IT,
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:45.230
  • BUT THIS IS BACK IN THE 1980'S,
  • 00:07:45.230 --> 00:07:48.160
  • BUT NONETHELESS,
  • 00:07:48.160 --> 00:07:49.210
  • IT JUST COST ME $60.000.
  • 00:07:49.210 --> 00:07:51.230
  • I PAID HIM $3.000 AS CONTRACTOR,
  • 00:07:51.230 --> 00:07:54.150
  • SO A TOTAL OF $63.000
  • 00:07:54.150 --> 00:07:56.190
  • FOR THIS HOUSE
  • 00:07:56.190 --> 00:07:57.230
  • THAT WAS PROBABLY WORTH
  • 00:07:57.230 --> 00:07:58.230
  • $120 OR MORE THOUSAND DOLLARS
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:08:01.140
  • THEN AND GOD JUST BEGAN TO BLESS
  • 00:08:01.140 --> 00:08:03.170
  • ME MORE THAN WHAT I COULD
  • 00:08:03.170 --> 00:08:05.150
  • PRODUCE ON MY OWN.
  • 00:08:05.150 --> 00:08:07.200
  • BECAUSE GOD WAS MY SOURCE,
  • 00:08:07.200 --> 00:08:09.050
  • BECAUSE I WAS TRUSTING GOD,
  • 00:08:09.050 --> 00:08:10.180
  • GOD HAS BLESSED ME,
  • 00:08:10.180 --> 00:08:11.240
  • AND I MEAN, I JUST HAVE
  • 00:08:11.240 --> 00:08:13.120
  • THE BLESSING OF GOD
  • 00:08:13.120 --> 00:08:14.250
  • COMING UPON ME.
  • 00:08:14.250 --> 00:08:16.070
  • YOU NEED TO GET THIS ATTITUDE
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:17.280
  • OF BEING A STEWARD,
  • 00:08:17.280 --> 00:08:20.210
  • AND WHEN YOU DO THAT,
  • 00:08:20.210 --> 00:08:21.280
  • GOD WILL PROSPER YOU.
  • 00:08:21.280 --> 00:08:23.220
  • HE WILL...HE WILL BLESS YOU
  • 00:08:23.220 --> 00:08:25.020
  • SO MUCH THAT IT'LL BE
  • 00:08:25.020 --> 00:08:26.230
  • EMBARRASSING TO SEE
  • 00:08:26.230 --> 00:08:27.220
  • ALL OF THE PROSPERITY
  • 00:08:27.220 --> 00:08:29.020
  • WHEN YOU ARE OPERATING
  • 00:08:29.020 --> 00:08:30.070
  • IN GOD'S SYSTEM.
  • 00:08:30.070 --> 00:08:31.110
  • SO, I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:08:31.110 --> 00:08:32.110
  • YOU JUST BARELY GETTING BY,
  • 00:08:32.110 --> 00:08:34.190
  • BUT I'M SAYING THAT YOU DON'T
  • 00:08:34.190 --> 00:08:36.100
  • DO THINGS JUST FOR YOURSELF,
  • 00:08:36.100 --> 00:08:38.060
  • YOU DO IT IN RESPONSE TO GOD.
  • 00:08:38.060 --> 00:08:40.270
  • GOD, YOU'RE THE ONE
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:41.280
  • THAT GAVE ME MY LIFE,
  • 00:08:41.280 --> 00:08:43.080
  • YOU'RE THE ONE
  • 00:08:43.080 --> 00:08:43.210
  • WHO GAVE ME MY TALENTS,
  • 00:08:43.210 --> 00:08:45.160
  • YOU GAVE ME MY ABILITIES,
  • 00:08:45.160 --> 00:08:46.270
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO
  • 00:08:46.270 --> 00:08:48.100
  • WITH IT?
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:49.090
  • AND...AND IT TAKES MONEY
  • 00:08:49.090 --> 00:08:50.200
  • TO LIVE,
  • 00:08:50.200 --> 00:08:51.150
  • TO ACCOMPLISH WHATEVER IT IS
  • 00:08:51.150 --> 00:08:52.240
  • THAT GOD LEADS YOU TO DO
  • 00:08:52.240 --> 00:08:53.280
  • AND, GOD, THE RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:08:53.280 --> 00:08:55.100
  • IS UPON YOU.
  • 00:08:55.100 --> 00:08:56.270
  • LET ME USE AN EXAMPLE HERE
  • 00:08:56.270 --> 00:08:59.130
  • IN SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:08:59.130 --> 00:08:59.290
  • THIS IS WHAT GOD DID WITH ABRAM.
  • 00:09:01.210 --> 00:09:04.210
  • IT SAYS, IN GENESIS, CHAPTER 12,
  • 00:09:04.210 --> 00:09:06.160
  • VERSE 1, IT SAYS,
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:07.080
  • NOW THE LORD HAD SAID
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:08.150
  • UNTO ABRAM,
  • 00:09:08.150 --> 00:09:09.060
  • GET THEE OUT OF THY COUNTRY,
  • 00:09:09.060 --> 00:09:11.040
  • AND FROM THY KINDRED,
  • 00:09:11.040 --> 00:09:12.080
  • AND FROM THY FATHER'S HOUSE
  • 00:09:12.080 --> 00:09:13.240
  • INTO A LAND THAT I WILL
  • 00:09:13.240 --> 00:09:15.140
  • SHEW THEE.
  • 00:09:15.140 --> 00:09:16.150
  • NOW I COULD SPEND A LOT MORE
  • 00:09:16.150 --> 00:09:17.180
  • TIME ON THIS, BUT YOU KNOW,
  • 00:09:17.180 --> 00:09:18.220
  • THIS IS COMPARABLE TO US.
  • 00:09:18.220 --> 00:09:20.090
  • GOD IS SAYING, YOU...YOU KNOW,
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:22.060
  • LEAVE YOUR FAMILY BUSINESS,
  • 00:09:22.060 --> 00:09:23.270
  • LEAVE YOUR FAMILY HOME,
  • 00:09:23.270 --> 00:09:25.030
  • LEAVE ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS,
  • 00:09:25.030 --> 00:09:26.200
  • LEAVE EVERYTHING THAT YOU'VE
  • 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:28.080
  • EVER DONE AND COME OUT
  • 00:09:28.080 --> 00:09:30.160
  • AND FOLLOW ME
  • 00:09:30.160 --> 00:09:31.170
  • AND I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU A LAND
  • 00:09:31.170 --> 00:09:34.050
  • THAT YOU WILL INHERIT LATER.
  • 00:09:34.050 --> 00:09:35.180
  • OF COURSE, WE KNOW THROUGH
  • 00:09:35.180 --> 00:09:36.120
  • THE SCRIPTURES THAT ABRAHAM
  • 00:09:36.120 --> 00:09:37.250
  • NEVER DID SEE THIS HAPPEN
  • 00:09:37.250 --> 00:09:40.060
  • FULLY IN HIS LIFETIME,
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:41.240
  • BUT HE LAID THE FOUNDATION,
  • 00:09:41.240 --> 00:09:43.170
  • AND OF COURSE, HE BECAME THE
  • 00:09:43.170 --> 00:09:44.210
  • FATHER OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL
  • 00:09:44.210 --> 00:09:46.040
  • AND YOU KNOW,
  • 00:09:46.040 --> 00:09:47.020
  • THE WHOLE BIBLE IS REPLETE
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:48.250
  • WITH THE HISTORY OF ISRAEL
  • 00:09:48.250 --> 00:09:50.030
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S BLESSING
  • 00:09:50.030 --> 00:09:51.130
  • AND IT BEGAN BY A MAN
  • 00:09:51.130 --> 00:09:53.090
  • JUST BASICALLY FOLLOWING GOD
  • 00:09:53.090 --> 00:09:55.190
  • AND...AND FORSAKING CONVENTIONAL
  • 00:09:55.190 --> 00:09:58.020
  • WISDOM.
  • 00:09:58.020 --> 00:09:59.060
  • MOST PEOPLE WOULD TELL YOU
  • 00:09:59.060 --> 00:10:00.060
  • THAT YOU'VE GOT TO STAY THERE
  • 00:10:00.060 --> 00:10:01.090
  • AND INHERIT THE FAMILY BUSINESS.
  • 00:10:01.090 --> 00:10:03.080
  • YOU'VE GOT TO...YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:10:03.080 --> 00:10:04.120
  • LEVERAGE WHAT YOUR PARENTS
  • 00:10:04.120 --> 00:10:06.050
  • HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO,

  • 00:15:03.060 --> 00:15:04.060
  • FOLLOWED GOD PERFECTLY.
  • 00:15:04.060 --> 00:15:05.200
  • IN THIS VERY CHAPTER,
  • 00:15:05.200 --> 00:15:08.060
  • ABRAHAM LEFT
  • 00:15:08.060 --> 00:15:09.160
  • AND STARTED OBEYING GOD,
  • 00:15:09.160 --> 00:15:10.290
  • BUT THEN THERE WAS A DROUGHT,
  • 00:15:10.290 --> 00:15:12.180
  • SO HE WENT DOWN INTO EGYPT
  • 00:15:12.180 --> 00:15:14.080
  • AND WHEN HE GOT TO EGYPT,
  • 00:15:14.080 --> 00:15:15.280
  • HIS WIFE...AT THIS TIME HE WAS
  • 00:15:15.280 --> 00:15:17.110
  • 75 YEARS OLD
  • 00:15:17.110 --> 00:15:18.210
  • AND HE WAS NINE YEARS OLDER
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:20.100
  • THAN HIS WIFE.
  • 00:15:20.100 --> 00:15:21.000
  • SO, THAT MEANS THAT HIS WIFE
  • 00:15:21.000 --> 00:15:22.060
  • WAS 66 YEARS OLD
  • 00:15:22.060 --> 00:15:24.090
  • AND WHEN THEY WENT DOWN
  • 00:15:24.090 --> 00:15:25.040
  • INTO EGYPT,
  • 00:15:25.040 --> 00:15:26.000
  • SHE WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN
  • 00:15:26.000 --> 00:15:28.020
  • THAT ABRAHAM WAS AFRAID
  • 00:15:28.020 --> 00:15:29.120
  • THAT PEOPLE WERE GOING TO
  • 00:15:29.120 --> 00:15:30.070
  • KILL HIM TO BE ABLE TO TAKE
  • 00:15:30.070 --> 00:15:32.090
  • HIS WIFE, SARAH, FROM HIM.
  • 00:15:32.090 --> 00:15:34.050
  • SO, HE SAYS, TELL THEM
  • 00:15:34.050 --> 00:15:35.000
  • YOU'RE MY SISTER,
  • 00:15:35.000 --> 00:15:36.090
  • WHICH WAS A HALF-TRUTH.
  • 00:15:36.090 --> 00:15:38.120
  • SHE WAS A HALF-SISTER,
  • 00:15:38.120 --> 00:15:39.280
  • BUT SHE WAS HIS WIFE
  • 00:15:39.280 --> 00:15:41.280
  • AND ABRAHAM SAYS,
  • 00:15:41.280 --> 00:15:43.090
  • TELL THEM YOU'RE JUST MY SISTER.
  • 00:15:43.090 --> 00:15:44.270
  • SO, PHARAOH SAW HER
  • 00:15:44.270 --> 00:15:46.180
  • AND SHE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:15:46.180 --> 00:15:48.090
  • HE TOOK SARAH
  • 00:15:48.090 --> 00:15:49.050
  • INTO HIS OWN HAREM
  • 00:15:49.050 --> 00:15:50.240
  • ABRAHAM DID NOT DO
  • 00:15:50.240 --> 00:15:52.050
  • THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:15:52.050 --> 00:15:52.280
  • SOMETIMES BECAUSE
  • 00:15:52.280 --> 00:15:53.210
  • IT'S IN SCRIPTURE PEOPLE THINK,
  • 00:15:53.210 --> 00:15:54.270
  • WELL THIS MUST HAVE
  • 00:15:54.270 --> 00:15:55.180
  • BEEN GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:15:55.180 --> 00:15:57.020
  • HE WAS THE MAN OF GOD.
  • 00:15:57.020 --> 00:15:58.090
  • BUT MAN, THIS WAS A MISTAKE
  • 00:15:58.090 --> 00:15:59.160
  • ON HIS PART.
  • 00:15:59.160 --> 00:16:00.270
  • YOU KNOW, IF I WENT
  • 00:16:00.270 --> 00:16:01.130
  • TO ANOTHER COUNTRY
  • 00:16:01.130 --> 00:16:02.290
  • AND IF I HAD MY WIFE WITH ME
  • 00:16:02.290 --> 00:16:04.110
  • AND IF I WENT TO, SAY,
  • 00:16:04.110 --> 00:16:05.030
  • ONE OF THESE ARAB COUNTRIES
  • 00:16:05.030 --> 00:16:06.140
  • AND...AND THEY SAW MY WIFE
  • 00:16:06.140 --> 00:16:08.070
  • AND THEY WANTED HER
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:09.020
  • AND I JUST SAID, HEY,
  • 00:16:09.020 --> 00:16:10.050
  • HELP YOURSELF, I'VE NEVER SEEN
  • 00:16:10.050 --> 00:16:11.180
  • THIS WOMAN BEFORE.
  • 00:16:11.180 --> 00:16:13.000
  • I GUARANTEE, THAT'S WRONG.
  • 00:16:13.000 --> 00:16:14.230
  • THAT IS WRONG; THAT'S SIN.
  • 00:16:14.230 --> 00:16:16.160
  • ABRAHAM WAS IN SIN
  • 00:16:16.160 --> 00:16:18.030
  • AND YET GOD SAID, I WILL BLESS
  • 00:16:18.170 --> 00:16:21.170
  • THOSE WHO BLESS YOU
  • 00:16:21.170 --> 00:16:22.260
  • AND I WILL CURSE THOSE
  • 00:16:22.260 --> 00:16:23.290
  • WHO CURSE YOU.
  • 00:16:23.290 --> 00:16:24.270
  • EVEN THOUGH ABRAHAM
  • 00:16:24.270 --> 00:16:26.160
  • WAS THE ONE WHO WAS WRONG
  • 00:16:26.160 --> 00:16:28.120
  • AND PHARAOH IN THIS SITUATION
  • 00:16:28.120 --> 00:16:30.070
  • WAS IN THE RIGHT,
  • 00:16:30.070 --> 00:16:31.130
  • WHO GOT REBUKED?
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:33.020
  • NOT ABRAHAM BECAUSE HE...
  • 00:16:33.020 --> 00:16:34.140
  • IT...GOD DEALS WITH US BASED ON
  • 00:16:34.140 --> 00:16:36.150
  • COVENANTS.
  • 00:16:36.150 --> 00:16:37.190
  • ABRAHAM WAS TRUSTING GOD.
  • 00:16:37.190 --> 00:16:39.180
  • HE HAD STARTED BELIEVING GOD.
  • 00:16:39.180 --> 00:16:41.060
  • HE WASN'T DOING IT PERFECTLY,
  • 00:16:41.060 --> 00:16:43.010
  • HE WAS FEARFUL ABOUT HIS WIFE,
  • 00:16:43.010 --> 00:16:44.280
  • HE DIDN'T STAND UP
  • 00:16:44.280 --> 00:16:46.280
  • AND DEFEND HIS WIFE THE WAY
  • 00:16:46.280 --> 00:16:48.100
  • THAT HE SHOULD HAVE.
  • 00:16:48.100 --> 00:16:49.040
  • AND YET GOD REBUKED PHARAOH
  • 00:16:49.040 --> 00:16:51.140
  • AND NOT ABRAHAM,
  • 00:16:51.140 --> 00:16:52.190
  • AND BECAUSE OF THIS
  • 00:16:52.190 --> 00:16:53.170
  • PHARAOH MADE HIM DEPART
  • 00:16:53.170 --> 00:16:55.130
  • FROM EGYPT AND GAVE HIM SLAVES.
  • 00:16:55.290 --> 00:16:58.290
  • HE GAVE HIM GIFT OF MANY SLAVES,
  • 00:16:58.290 --> 00:17:01.020
  • HE GAVE HIM CATTLE,
  • 00:17:01.020 --> 00:17:02.100
  • HE GAVE HIM FLOCKS,
  • 00:17:02.100 --> 00:17:03.160
  • HE GAVE HIM HERDS,
  • 00:17:03.160 --> 00:17:04.230
  • AND ABRAHAM BEGAN TO PROSPER.
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:07.250
  • AND IT WASN'T BECAUSE OF HIS
  • 00:17:07.250 --> 00:17:09.020
  • SHREWD DEALINGS.
  • 00:17:09.020 --> 00:17:10.020
  • IT WASN'T BECAUSE
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:10.200
  • HE DID EVERYTHING RIGHT,
  • 00:17:10.200 --> 00:17:11.220
  • IT WAS BECAUSE GOD
  • 00:17:11.220 --> 00:17:12.250
  • WAS HIS SOURCE.
  • 00:17:12.250 --> 00:17:14.190
  • DID YOU KNOW,
  • 00:17:14.190 --> 00:17:15.000
  • I CAN TRUTHFULLY SAY THAT I HAVE
  • 00:17:15.000 --> 00:17:16.130
  • NOT DONE EVERYTHING RIGHT
  • 00:17:16.130 --> 00:17:17.240
  • AND YET GOD HAS PROSPERED ME,
  • 00:17:17.240 --> 00:17:20.220
  • GOD HAS BLESSED ME,
  • 00:17:20.220 --> 00:17:22.000
  • BLESSED OUR MINISTRY,
  • 00:17:22.000 --> 00:17:23.010
  • BLESSED US PERSONALLY,
  • 00:17:23.010 --> 00:17:24.230
  • AND IT'S NOT BECAUSE
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:25.140
  • I'M THE SHARPEST KNIFE
  • 00:17:25.140 --> 00:17:26.130
  • IN THE DRAWER, BUT IT'S BECAUSE
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:28.040
  • I HAVE BELIEVED GOD,
  • 00:17:28.040 --> 00:17:30.040
  • I'VE MADE GOD MY SOURCE,
  • 00:17:30.040 --> 00:17:32.010
  • I'M TRUSTING GOD,
  • 00:17:32.010 --> 00:17:33.030
  • I'M FOLLOWING GOD;
  • 00:17:33.030 --> 00:17:34.010
  • I'M NOT DOING IT PERFECTLY
  • 00:17:34.010 --> 00:17:35.160
  • AND YET GOD IS BLESSING ME.
  • 00:17:35.180 --> 00:17:38.180
  • THIS IS WHAT YOU'VE GOT TO DO,
  • 00:17:38.180 --> 00:17:39.220
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET THIS ATTITUDE
  • 00:17:39.220 --> 00:17:40.250
  • OF A STEWARD;
  • 00:17:40.250 --> 00:17:41.220
  • GOD, WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?
  • 00:17:41.220 --> 00:17:43.180
  • THIS LIFE IS A GIFT FROM YOU.
  • 00:17:43.180 --> 00:17:45.140
  • MY TALENTS AND ABILITIES
  • 00:17:45.140 --> 00:17:46.240
  • ARE A GIFT FROM YOU;
  • 00:17:46.240 --> 00:17:47.270
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?
  • 00:17:47.270 --> 00:17:50.140
  • AND WHEN YOU START LOOKING
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:51.190
  • AT THINGS THAT WAY
  • 00:17:51.190 --> 00:17:52.150
  • AND TAKE EVERYTHING
  • 00:17:52.150 --> 00:17:53.190
  • THAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU
  • 00:17:53.190 --> 00:17:55.210
  • AND YOU SEE GOD AS YOUR SOURCE,
  • 00:17:55.210 --> 00:17:58.080
  • IT JUST PUTS YOU IN A DIFFERENT
  • 00:17:58.080 --> 00:17:59.190
  • CATEGORY THAN OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:59.190 --> 00:18:01.250
  • YOU KNOW, IN THE NEXT CHAPTER,
  • 00:18:01.250 --> 00:18:03.120
  • ABRAHAM BY THIS TIME
  • 00:18:03.120 --> 00:18:04.150
  • HAD BEGUN TO PROSPER SO MUCH
  • 00:18:04.220 --> 00:18:07.220
  • THAT HE AND HIS NEPHEW, LOT,
  • 00:18:07.220 --> 00:18:10.060
  • WEREN'T ABLE TO LIVE TOGETHER
  • 00:18:10.060 --> 00:18:11.170
  • ANYMORE BECAUSE THEIR HERDS
  • 00:18:11.170 --> 00:18:13.090
  • WERE SO NUMEROUS
  • 00:18:13.090 --> 00:18:14.070
  • THAT THEY WERE OVERGRAZING
  • 00:18:14.070 --> 00:18:15.150
  • THE LAND.
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:16.270
  • AND SO ABRAHAM CAME TO LOT
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:20.010
  • AND SAID, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:18:20.010 --> 00:18:20.210
  • WE'VE GOT TO SEPARATE.
  • 00:18:20.210 --> 00:18:22.190
  • HERE'S THE WHOLE LAND
  • 00:18:22.190 --> 00:18:23.180
  • IN FRONT OF US.
  • 00:18:23.180 --> 00:18:24.180
  • YOU PICK WHICHEVER WAY
  • 00:18:24.180 --> 00:18:25.190
  • YOU WANT TO GO
  • 00:18:25.190 --> 00:18:26.070
  • AND I'LL GO THE OTHER DIRECTION.
  • 00:18:26.070 --> 00:18:28.000
  • AND THEY WERE STANDING
  • 00:18:28.000 --> 00:18:28.230
  • AT A PLACE DOWN AROUND HEBRON,
  • 00:18:28.230 --> 00:18:30.190
  • AND AT THAT TIME IT SAYS,
  • 00:18:30.190 --> 00:18:32.000
  • THAT THE LAND OF SODOM
  • 00:18:32.000 --> 00:18:34.080
  • AND GOMORRAH
  • 00:18:34.080 --> 00:18:34.260
  • WAS LIKE THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
  • 00:18:34.260 --> 00:18:37.070
  • IT WAS WELL WATERED
  • 00:18:37.070 --> 00:18:38.100
  • BEFORE THE LORD DESTROYED IT,
  • 00:18:38.100 --> 00:18:39.240
  • AND IT WAS JUST BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:18:39.240 --> 00:18:41.100
  • PASTURELAND.
  • 00:18:41.100 --> 00:18:42.170
  • AND WHERE THEY HAD BEEN,
  • 00:18:42.170 --> 00:18:43.160
  • I'VE BEEN OVER THERE
  • 00:18:43.160 --> 00:18:44.090
  • AROUND HEBRON,
  • 00:18:44.090 --> 00:18:45.070
  • DOWN IN THAT AREA,
  • 00:18:45.070 --> 00:18:46.050
  • AND IT'S SEMI-DESERT.
  • 00:18:46.050 --> 00:18:47.230
  • YOU CAN LITERALLY WALK
  • 00:18:47.230 --> 00:18:48.290
  • TWO OR THREE STEPS
  • 00:18:48.290 --> 00:18:50.040
  • IN BETWEEN BLADES OF GRASS.
  • 00:18:50.040 --> 00:18:53.010
  • NOW THIS MAY NOT MEAN MUCH
  • 00:18:53.010 --> 00:18:54.050
  • TO YOU, BUT IN THOSE DAYS
  • 00:18:54.050 --> 00:18:55.210
  • THESE PEOPLE, THEY WERE GETTING
  • 00:18:55.210 --> 00:18:57.040
  • THEIR LIVELIHOOD
  • 00:18:57.040 --> 00:18:58.120
  • FROM THEIR FLOCKS
  • 00:18:58.120 --> 00:18:59.080
  • AND FROM THEIR HERDS.
  • 00:18:59.080 --> 00:19:00.210
  • THEY WEREN'T FARMERS AS SUCH,
  • 00:19:00.210 --> 00:19:02.080
  • THEY WERE RANCHERS
  • 00:19:02.080 --> 00:19:03.160
  • AND THEY WERE GRAZING ANIMALS.
  • 00:19:03.160 --> 00:19:05.120
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE HAD HORSES
  • 00:19:05.120 --> 00:19:06.150
  • MOST OF MY LIFE,
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:07.160
  • AND I GUARANTEE YOU,
  • 00:19:07.160 --> 00:19:08.060
  • WHEN I HAVE BOUGHT A PLACE,
  • 00:19:08.060 --> 00:19:10.020
  • THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:19:10.020 --> 00:19:11.060
  • THAT I LOOKED FOR, IS WHERE WAS
  • 00:19:11.060 --> 00:19:13.080
  • THE WELL-WATERED PLACE?
  • 00:19:13.080 --> 00:19:14.190
  • WHERE IS THE GOOD PASTURE LAND?
  • 00:19:14.190 --> 00:19:17.170
  • AND SO FOR ABRAHAM
  • 00:19:17.170 --> 00:19:20.150
  • IN THIS 13TH CHAPTER,
  • 00:19:20.150 --> 00:19:22.120
  • TO TELL LOT THAT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:19:22.120 --> 00:19:24.130
  • THE WHOLE LAND'S IN FRONT OF US,
  • 00:19:24.130 --> 00:19:25.190
  • YOU JUST PICK WHICH WAY
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:26.200
  • YOU WANT TO GO.
  • 00:19:26.200 --> 00:19:27.050
  • DOWN HERE AROUND THE DEAD SEA,
  • 00:19:27.050 --> 00:19:29.190
  • AT THAT TIME IT WAS LUSH,
  • 00:19:29.190 --> 00:19:31.100
  • IT'S WELL-WATERED, HE SAYS,
  • 00:19:31.100 --> 00:19:32.230
  • IF YOU WANT TO GO THAT WAY,
  • 00:19:32.230 --> 00:19:34.030
  • YOU PICK THAT AND I'LL HEAD
  • 00:19:34.030 --> 00:19:35.080
  • TOWARDS THE DESERT.
  • 00:19:35.080 --> 00:19:37.080
  • NOW THAT MAY SEEM INSIGNIFICANT
  • 00:19:37.080 --> 00:19:38.290
  • TO YOU,
  • 00:19:38.290 --> 00:19:39.090
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?
  • 00:19:39.090 --> 00:19:40.290
  • THIS MEANS THAT ABRAHAM
  • 00:19:40.290 --> 00:19:43.060
  • WAS SEEING GOD AS HIS SOURCE.
  • 00:19:43.080 --> 00:19:46.080
  • HE WASN'T JUST LOOKING AT THINGS
  • 00:19:46.080 --> 00:19:48.010
  • IN THE NATURAL.
  • 00:19:48.010 --> 00:19:49.050
  • THIS WOULD BE COMPARABLE,
  • 00:19:49.050 --> 00:19:50.040
  • SAY, TO A PERSON
  • 00:19:50.040 --> 00:19:51.110
  • THAT YOU'RE A SALESMAN
  • 00:19:51.110 --> 00:19:53.030
  • AND LET'S SAY
  • 00:19:53.030 --> 00:19:53.150
  • THAT YOU'RE SELLING SHOES
  • 00:19:53.150 --> 00:19:54.220
  • OR SOMETHING LIKE THIS,
  • 00:19:54.220 --> 00:19:57.160
  • AND DO YOU WANT TO
  • 00:19:57.160 --> 00:19:58.070
  • GO TO THE AFFLUENT AREA
  • 00:19:58.070 --> 00:20:00.100
  • WHERE PEOPLE HAVE EXTRA MONEY
  • 00:20:00.100 --> 00:20:01.280
  • SO THAT THEY CAN SPEND IT
  • 00:20:01.280 --> 00:20:03.050
  • ON THINGS LIKE A VERY FANCY
  • 00:20:03.050 --> 00:20:05.010
  • PA...PAIR OF SHOES?
  • 00:20:05.010 --> 00:20:06.060
  • OR DO YOU WANT TO GO OVER HERE
  • 00:20:06.060 --> 00:20:07.080
  • TO A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE
  • 00:20:07.080 --> 00:20:08.160
  • ARE VERY POOR?
  • 00:20:08.160 --> 00:20:09.190
  • MOST PEOPLE, WELL MAN,
  • 00:20:09.190 --> 00:20:10.180
  • YOU'VE GOT TO DO WHATEVER,
  • 00:20:10.180 --> 00:20:12.170
  • YOU WOULD STAB A PERSON
  • 00:20:12.170 --> 00:20:14.010
  • IN THE BACK TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:20:14.010 --> 00:20:15.080
  • GET THE BETTER TERRITORY,
  • 00:20:15.080 --> 00:20:16.170
  • THE BETTER JOB AND ALL OF THIS.
  • 00:20:16.170 --> 00:20:18.260
  • ABRAHAM WAS JUST SAYING,
  • 00:20:18.260 --> 00:20:19.280
  • LOOK, I'LL TAKE THE...
  • 00:20:19.280 --> 00:20:21.020
  • YOU TAKE WHICHEVER YOU WANT
  • 00:20:21.020 --> 00:20:22.160
  • AND LEAVE ME THE LEFTOVERS
  • 00:20:22.160 --> 00:20:24.190
  • AND I'LL PROSPER MORE THAN YOU
  • 00:20:24.190 --> 00:20:26.030
  • BECAUSE GOD IS MY SOURCE.
  • 00:20:26.030 --> 00:20:29.010
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE
  • 00:20:29.010 --> 00:20:29.150
  • UNDERSTOOD WHAT I'VE SAID,
  • 00:20:29.150 --> 00:20:30.190
  • BUT THIS IS REALLY SIGNIFICANT.
  • 00:20:30.190 --> 00:20:32.260
  • IN THE 13TH CHAPTER OF GENESIS,
  • 00:20:32.260 --> 00:20:35.070
  • ABRAHAM IS SHOWING
  • 00:20:35.070 --> 00:20:36.170
  • THAT HIS TRUST WAS IN THE LORD
  • 00:20:36.230 --> 00:20:39.230
  • AND NOT JUST IN HIS GREAT WISDOM
  • 00:20:39.230 --> 00:20:42.120
  • AND HIS ABILITY.
  • 00:20:42.120 --> 00:20:44.030
  • HE HAD MADE GOD HIS SOURCE.
  • 00:20:44.030 --> 00:20:46.210
  • HE RECOGNIZED THAT GOD
  • 00:20:46.210 --> 00:20:48.050
  • WAS THE ONE WHO WAS
  • 00:20:48.050 --> 00:20:48.290
  • PROSPERING HIM
  • 00:20:48.290 --> 00:20:49.260
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT, HE SAYS,
  • 00:20:49.260 --> 00:20:51.140
  • YOU GO WHICHEVER WAY YOU WANT
  • 00:20:51.140 --> 00:20:52.250
  • AND I'LL TAKE THE LEFTOVERS.
  • 00:20:52.250 --> 00:20:54.060
  • I'LL TAKE THE BARREN LAND,
  • 00:20:54.060 --> 00:20:56.020
  • AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT LOT
  • 00:20:56.020 --> 00:20:57.280
  • CHOSE TO DO.
  • 00:20:57.280 --> 00:20:59.030
  • AND YOU KNOW WHO WOUND UP
  • 00:20:59.030 --> 00:21:00.050
  • PROSPERING?
  • 00:21:00.050 --> 00:21:01.090
  • ABRAHAM ACTUALLY HAD TO
  • 00:21:01.090 --> 00:21:02.230
  • GO AND DELIVER LOT, HIS NEPHEW,
  • 00:21:02.270 --> 00:21:05.270
  • WHEN THEY WERE TAKEN CAPTIVE
  • 00:21:05.270 --> 00:21:07.090
  • BY THESE OTHER KINGS,
  • 00:21:07.090 --> 00:21:08.240
  • AND ABRAHAM IS THE ONE
  • 00:21:08.240 --> 00:21:09.230
  • THAT PROSPERED.
  • 00:21:09.230 --> 00:21:11.060
  • TODAY YOU...YOU HEAR ABOUT LOT
  • 00:21:11.060 --> 00:21:13.000
  • AND YOU IMMEDIATELY THINK,
  • 00:21:13.000 --> 00:21:14.010
  • THE DESTRUCTION OF SODOM
  • 00:21:14.010 --> 00:21:15.080
  • AND GOMORRAH,
  • 00:21:15.080 --> 00:21:15.290
  • AND LOT LOSING HIS DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:21:15.290 --> 00:21:17.160
  • AND LOT LOSING HIS WIFE,
  • 00:21:17.160 --> 00:21:19.190
  • AND ALL OF THE TRAGEDY
  • 00:21:19.190 --> 00:21:20.210
  • THAT CAME TO HIM
  • 00:21:20.210 --> 00:21:21.150
  • AND YOU LOOK AT ABRAHAM
  • 00:21:21.150 --> 00:21:22.170
  • AND YOU JUST SEE
  • 00:21:22.170 --> 00:21:23.040
  • THE BLESSING OF GOD CONTINUING
  • 00:21:23.040 --> 00:21:25.060
  • TO WORK IN HIS LIFE.
  • 00:21:25.060 --> 00:21:26.180
  • AND IT'S BECAUSE HE SAW GOD
  • 00:21:26.180 --> 00:21:28.240
  • AS HIS SOURCE.
  • 00:21:28.240 --> 00:21:30.200
  • SEE, THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING
  • 00:21:30.200 --> 00:21:32.010
  • ABOUT.
  • 00:21:32.010 --> 00:21:32.110
  • THE WAY I'M INTRODUCING
  • 00:21:32.110 --> 00:21:33.140
  • THIS TEACHING ON PROSPERITY
  • 00:21:33.140 --> 00:21:35.060
  • IS TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:21:35.060 --> 00:21:35.290
  • FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP.
  • 00:21:35.290 --> 00:21:38.110
  • YOU NEED TO SEE YOURSELF
  • 00:21:38.110 --> 00:21:39.200
  • AS A STEWARD, NOT AN OWNER.
  • 00:21:40.000 --> 00:21:43.000
  • YOU NEED TO SEE GOD
  • 00:21:43.000 --> 00:21:44.110
  • AS YOUR SOURCE;
  • 00:21:44.110 --> 00:21:45.130
  • NOT YOURSELF AS YOUR SOURCE.
  • 00:21:45.130 --> 00:21:47.160
  • YOU NEED TO DEPEND UPON GOD
  • 00:21:47.160 --> 00:21:50.110
  • AND NOT YOURSELF,
  • 00:21:50.110 --> 00:21:52.120
  • AND THERE'S A BALANCE HERE.
  • 00:21:52.120 --> 00:21:53.090
  • YES, YOU HAVE TO WORK.
  • 00:21:53.090 --> 00:21:54.190
  • YES, YOU HAVE TO DO THINGS.
  • 00:21:54.190 --> 00:21:56.170
  • YOU AREN'T GOING TO JUST LAY
  • 00:21:56.170 --> 00:21:57.190
  • ON THE COUCH
  • 00:21:57.190 --> 00:21:58.130
  • AND HAVE GOD DROP MONEY
  • 00:21:58.130 --> 00:21:59.280
  • OUT OF THE SKY;
  • 00:21:59.280 --> 00:22:00.270
  • AND THAT'S NOT THE WAY THAT YOU
  • 00:22:00.270 --> 00:22:02.130
  • PROSPER IN GOD'S ECONOMY.
  • 00:22:02.130 --> 00:22:04.070
  • THERE'S MANY SCRIPTURES
  • 00:22:04.070 --> 00:22:05.050
  • THAT TALK ABOUT YOU SETTING
  • 00:22:05.050 --> 00:22:06.060
  • YOUR HAND UNTO THINGS,
  • 00:22:06.060 --> 00:22:07.100
  • GOD WOULD BLESS
  • 00:22:07.100 --> 00:22:08.020
  • THE WORK OF YOUR HANDS.
  • 00:22:08.020 --> 00:22:09.250
  • AND SO, YES, YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:22:09.250 --> 00:22:10.260
  • DO THINGS, BUT YOU DO IT
  • 00:22:10.260 --> 00:22:12.030
  • IN RESPONSE TO GOD,
  • 00:22:12.030 --> 00:22:14.100
  • NOT DOING THINGS
  • 00:22:14.100 --> 00:22:16.030
  • AND THEN ASK GOD TO RESPOND
  • 00:22:16.030 --> 00:22:18.000
  • TO YOU.
  • 00:22:18.000 --> 00:22:19.120
  • THAT'S A BIG STATEMENT
  • 00:22:19.120 --> 00:22:20.060
  • RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:22:20.060 --> 00:22:21.170
  • AND I KNOW THAT GOD IS SPEAKING
  • 00:22:21.170 --> 00:22:22.250
  • TO MANY PEOPLE RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:22:22.250 --> 00:22:24.070
  • THAT TRULY YOU ARE THE SOURCE
  • 00:22:24.070 --> 00:22:26.280
  • OF YOUR PROSPERITY.
  • 00:22:26.280 --> 00:22:28.090
  • THE BURDEN IS UPON YOU,
  • 00:22:28.090 --> 00:22:29.160
  • AND THAT'S WHY YOU CAN'T
  • 00:22:29.160 --> 00:22:30.230
  • SLEEP AT NIGHT,
  • 00:22:30.230 --> 00:22:31.190
  • AND THAT'S WHY YOU'RE WORRIED,
  • 00:22:31.190 --> 00:22:32.190
  • AND THAT'S WHY YOU'RE STRESSED
  • 00:22:32.190 --> 00:22:33.250
  • OUT AND WONDERING ABOUT,
  • 00:22:33.250 --> 00:22:34.280
  • WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?
  • 00:22:34.280 --> 00:22:37.090
  • YOU NEED TO MAKE GOD
  • 00:22:37.090 --> 00:22:38.120
  • YOUR SOURCE.
  • 00:22:38.120 --> 00:22:38.290
  • YOU NEED TO START SEEING
  • 00:22:38.290 --> 00:22:39.290
  • YOURSELF AS A STEWARD
  • 00:22:39.290 --> 00:22:42.050
  • INSTEAD OF AN OWNER
  • 00:22:42.050 --> 00:22:43.070
  • SO THAT YOU CAN CAST IT OVER
  • 00:22:43.070 --> 00:22:44.200
  • ON THE LORD AND SAYING,
  • 00:22:44.200 --> 00:22:45.140
  • GOD, I'M FOLLOWING YOU.
  • 00:22:45.140 --> 00:22:46.270
  • I'M DOING WHAT YOU TOLD ME
  • 00:22:46.270 --> 00:22:48.020
  • TO DO.
  • 00:22:48.020 --> 00:22:48.250
  • THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM;
  • 00:22:48.250 --> 00:22:50.040
  • WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

  • HOW DO YOU WANT ME TO RESPOND?
  • 00:22:52.150 --> 00:22:54.120
  • GOD, THE BURDEN IS UPON YOU.
  • 00:22:54.120 --> 00:22:56.250
  • I TELL YOU, THAT'S A GREAT WAY
  • 00:22:56.250 --> 00:22:58.040
