  • 00:00:05.290 --> 00:00:07.220
  • ON GOD'S UNCONDITIONAL
  • 00:00:07.220 --> 00:00:09.060
  • > YOU NEED TO SEE YOURSELF
  • 00:00:11.090 --> 00:00:12.280
  • AS A STEWARD,
  • 00:00:12.280 --> 00:00:14.230
  • NOT AN OWNER OF THE MONEY
  • 00:00:14.230 --> 00:00:16.290
  • - ONCE YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:00:18.240 --> 00:00:19.240
  • THAT IT ISN'T YOUR MONEY,
  • 00:00:19.240 --> 00:00:21.100
  • IT'S HIS MONEY.
  • 00:00:21.100 --> 00:00:22.200
  • AND THEN HE JUST BLESSES US,
  • 00:00:22.200 --> 00:00:24.070
  • AND OUR FINANCES IMPROVED.
  • 00:00:24.070 --> 00:00:25.290
  • GOD REALLY BLESSED OUR FINANCES,
  • 00:00:25.290 --> 00:00:27.250
  • YOU CAN TRUST GOD
  • 00:00:27.250 --> 00:00:28.180
  • WELCOME TO OUR MONDAY'S
  • 00:00:32.100 --> 00:00:33.100
  • BROADCAST OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH.
  • 00:00:33.100 --> 00:00:35.180
  • TODAY IS MY FIFTH AND FINAL WEEK
  • 00:00:35.180 --> 00:00:38.040
  • OF TEACHING
  • 00:00:38.040 --> 00:00:38.280
  • ON FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP.
  • 00:00:38.280 --> 00:00:41.050
  • YOU KNOW I'VE GOT A BOOK
  • 00:00:41.050 --> 00:00:41.230
  • ON THIS.
  • 00:00:41.230 --> 00:00:42.070
  • THE SUBTITLE OF THIS
  • 00:00:42.070 --> 00:00:43.120
  • IS EXPERIENCE THE FREEDOM
  • 00:00:43.120 --> 00:00:45.030
  • OF TURNING YOUR FINANCES
  • 00:00:45.030 --> 00:00:46.200
  • OVER TO GOD.
  • 00:00:46.200 --> 00:00:48.170
  • I TELL YOU, THAT'S A POWERFUL
  • 00:00:48.170 --> 00:00:49.230
  • STATEMENT
  • 00:00:49.230 --> 00:00:50.060
  • RIGHT THERE THAT,
  • 00:00:50.060 --> 00:00:51.130
  • WHEN GOD BECOMES YOUR SOURCE
  • 00:00:51.130 --> 00:00:53.060
  • AND YOU JUST BECOME A STEWARD
  • 00:00:53.060 --> 00:00:55.190
  • OF WHAT HE GIVES YOU,
  • 00:00:55.190 --> 00:00:57.130
  • THAT TOTALLY CHANGES
  • 00:00:57.130 --> 00:00:59.150
  • YOUR APPROACH TOWARDS LIFE,
  • 00:00:59.150 --> 00:01:01.030
  • TOWARDS YOUR FINANCES.
  • 00:01:01.030 --> 00:01:02.080
  • IT TAKES THE PRESSURE
  • 00:01:02.080 --> 00:01:03.010
  • OFF OF YOU.
  • 00:01:03.010 --> 00:01:04.110
  • IT PUTS IT ALL UPON GOD,
  • 00:01:04.110 --> 00:01:05.240
  • AND I TELL YOU,
  • 00:01:05.240 --> 00:01:06.070
  • THAT'S RIGHT WHERE HE WANTS
  • 00:01:06.070 --> 00:01:07.050
  • TO BE.
  • 00:01:07.050 --> 00:01:07.210
  • HE WANTS TO BE IN CONTROL
  • 00:01:07.210 --> 00:01:08.210
  • OF YOUR FINANCES.
  • 00:01:08.210 --> 00:01:10.130
  • AND AS I SAID,
  • 00:01:10.130 --> 00:01:10.270
  • THIS IS MY FINAL WEEK TO TEACH
  • 00:01:10.270 --> 00:01:12.170
  • ON THIS.
  • 00:01:12.170 --> 00:01:13.050
  • I'VE ALREADY COVERED
  • 00:01:13.050 --> 00:01:14.170
  • A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF MATERIAL.
  • 00:01:14.170 --> 00:01:16.180
  • YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT THIS
  • 00:01:16.180 --> 00:01:17.130
  • SAME TEACHING IN CDs AND DVDs.
  • 00:01:17.210 --> 00:01:20.210
  • WE HAVE A STUDY GUIDE,
  • 00:01:20.210 --> 00:01:22.100
  • AND I TELL YOU, IF YOU HAVE...
  • 00:01:22.100 --> 00:01:24.020
  • WELL, I WAS GOING TO SAY
  • 00:01:24.020 --> 00:01:25.240
  • IF YOU HAVE PEOPLE THAT YOU KNOW
  • 00:01:25.240 --> 00:01:27.280
  • NEED HELP IN FINANCES,
  • 00:01:27.280 --> 00:01:29.290
  • YOU OUGHT TO CONSIDER
  • 00:01:29.290 --> 00:01:30.230
  • A BIBLE STUDY.
  • 00:01:30.230 --> 00:01:31.180
  • BUT YOU OUGHT TO DO THIS
  • 00:01:31.180 --> 00:01:32.130
  • WHETHER THEY ARE IN TROUBLE
  • 00:01:32.130 --> 00:01:33.190
  • NOW OR NOT.
  • 00:01:33.190 --> 00:01:34.250
  • BECAUSE FINANCES
  • 00:01:34.250 --> 00:01:35.190
  • ISN'T A STATIC ISSUE.
  • 00:01:35.190 --> 00:01:37.030
  • IT'S NOT SOMETHING
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:37.220
  • THAT YOU JUST FIX ONE TIME
  • 00:01:37.220 --> 00:01:39.090
  • AND THEN YOU NEVER HAVE
  • 00:01:39.090 --> 00:01:40.010
  • ANOTHER PROBLEM.
  • 00:01:40.010 --> 00:01:40.260
  • IT'S SOM...IT'S AN ONGOING THING
  • 00:01:40.260 --> 00:01:42.100
  • THAT YOU HAVE TO MANAGE
  • 00:01:42.100 --> 00:01:44.040
  • YOUR FINANCES
  • 00:01:44.040 --> 00:01:44.290
  • AND WHEN YOU TURN YOUR FINANCES
  • 00:01:44.290 --> 00:01:46.110
  • OVER TO GOD
  • 00:01:46.110 --> 00:01:48.010
  • AND JUST BECOME A STEWARD
  • 00:01:48.010 --> 00:01:49.150
  • AND DO WHAT HE TELLS YOU TO DO,
  • 00:01:49.150 --> 00:01:51.120
  • IT CHANGES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:01:51.250 --> 00:01:54.250
  • SO WE DEALT WITH
  • 00:01:54.250 --> 00:01:55.110
  • A LOT OF THINGS.
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:56.020
  • A LOT OF IT WAS JUST CHANGING
  • 00:01:56.020 --> 00:01:57.160
  • ATTITUDES TOWARDS FINANCES.
  • 00:01:57.160 --> 00:01:59.270
  • WE TALKED ABOUT THE TITHE
  • 00:01:59.270 --> 00:02:01.280
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE DEALT WITH
  • 00:02:01.280 --> 00:02:02.210
  • LAST WEEK.
  • 00:02:02.210 --> 00:02:04.000
  • WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEK
  • 00:02:04.000 --> 00:02:05.030
  • IS TALKING ABOUT PARTNERSHIP.
  • 00:02:05.030 --> 00:02:07.180
  • YOU KNOW PARTNERSHIP
  • 00:02:07.180 --> 00:02:08.110
  • IS SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY
  • 00:02:08.110 --> 00:02:10.100
  • DEAR TO MY HEART,
  • 00:02:10.100 --> 00:02:11.120
  • BECAUSE, WITHOUT ME
  • 00:02:11.120 --> 00:02:12.220
  • GOING INTO THE TOTAL EXPLANATION
  • 00:02:12.220 --> 00:02:15.090
  • ON THIS,
  • 00:02:15.090 --> 00:02:15.230
  • WHEN JAMIE AND I
  • 00:02:15.230 --> 00:02:16.210
  • FIRST GOT STARTED IN MINISTRY,
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:18.180
  • WE WERE AS POOR
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:20.180
  • AS WE POSSIBLY COULD BE.
  • 00:02:20.180 --> 00:02:22.240
  • WE HAD NO MONEY.
  • 00:02:22.240 --> 00:02:23.220
  • WE STRUGGLED,
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:25.050
  • AND EVENTUALLY, GOD LED US
  • 00:02:25.220 --> 00:02:28.220
  • INTO SOME TRUTH,
  • 00:02:28.220 --> 00:02:29.270
  • AND WE STARTED SHARING
  • 00:02:29.270 --> 00:02:31.100
  • THESE TRUTHS WITH OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:32.260
  • AND PEOPLE HAVE JOINED WITH US,
  • 00:02:32.260 --> 00:02:34.040
  • AND RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:02:34.040 --> 00:02:34.240
  • WE HAVE ABOUT 44.000 PARTNERS
  • 00:02:35.250 --> 00:02:38.250
  • WHO ENABLE US TO DO
  • 00:02:38.250 --> 00:02:39.290
  • WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:02:39.290 --> 00:02:40.220
  • THEY SUPPLY AROUND 30%
  • 00:02:40.220 --> 00:02:43.080
  • OF OUR MONTHLY INCOME...
  • 00:02:43.080 --> 00:02:45.090
  • IS THESE 44.000 PARTNERS.
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:48.260
  • AND I TELL YOU, WE WOULD NOT
  • 00:02:48.260 --> 00:02:49.270
  • BE ABLE TO DO WHAT WE DO
  • 00:02:49.270 --> 00:02:51.260
  • WITHOUT PARTNERS,
  • 00:02:51.260 --> 00:02:52.190
  • AND OUR PARTNERS ARE THE BEST,
  • 00:02:52.190 --> 00:02:54.000
  • BECAUSE, HONESTLY,
  • 00:02:54.000 --> 00:02:54.240
  • WE DO NOT PUSH OR PULL.
  • 00:02:54.240 --> 00:02:57.030
  • WE DON'T CONDEMN PEOPLE
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:02:59.170
  • AND THINGS LIKE THIS,
  • 00:02:59.170 --> 00:03:00.250
  • AND WE ARE ACTUALLY
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:02.010
  • MORE DEPENDENT
  • 00:03:02.010 --> 00:03:03.240
  • UPON OUR PARTNERS THAN
  • 00:03:03.240 --> 00:03:04.250
  • I THINK MOST MINISTRIES ARE.
  • 00:03:04.250 --> 00:03:07.000
  • YOU KNOW, MOST MINISTRIES
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:08.010
  • SELL ALL OF THEIR MATERIAL.
  • 00:03:08.010 --> 00:03:09.190
  • NOW, LET ME JUST EXPLAIN
  • 00:03:09.190 --> 00:03:10.220
  • THAT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THIS,
  • 00:03:10.220 --> 00:03:12.060
  • WE'LL SAY, HERE'S A SUGGESTED
  • 00:03:12.060 --> 00:03:14.220
  • DONATION.
  • 00:03:14.220 --> 00:03:15.100
  • THE REASON I DO THINGS THAT WAY
  • 00:03:15.100 --> 00:03:16.180
  • IS BECAUSE WHEN I FIRST STARTED
  • 00:03:16.180 --> 00:03:18.180
  • IN MINISTRY,
  • 00:03:18.180 --> 00:03:19.040
  • I JUST GAVE EVERYTHING AWAY
  • 00:03:19.040 --> 00:03:20.240
  • TOTALLY FREE
  • 00:03:20.240 --> 00:03:21.210
  • AND...AND DIDN'T EVEN
  • 00:03:21.210 --> 00:03:22.150
  • ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO GIVE.
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:24.220
  • I REMEMBER GOING
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:25.150
  • TO DALLAS, TEXAS, ONE TIME
  • 00:03:25.150 --> 00:03:27.030
  • AND WE TOOK 6.000 CASSETTE TAPES
  • 00:03:27.030 --> 00:03:29.220
  • WITH US,
  • 00:03:29.220 --> 00:03:30.280
  • AND WE WOULD HAVE STACKS
  • 00:03:30.280 --> 00:03:32.150
  • OF 30 CASSETTE TAPES
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:34.220
  • OF ONE TOPIC,
  • 00:03:34.220 --> 00:03:36.100
  • E...YOU KNOW, GROUPED TOGETHER
  • 00:03:36.100 --> 00:03:39.010
  • AND I EVEN SUPPLIED GROCERY BAGS
  • 00:03:39.010 --> 00:03:41.250
  • THAT PEOPLE COULD TAKE ALL OF
  • 00:03:41.250 --> 00:03:43.090
  • THE TAPES THAT THEY WANTED.
  • 00:03:43.090 --> 00:03:45.040
  • AND I WAS STANDING BACK THERE
  • 00:03:45.040 --> 00:03:46.110
  • AND I ACTUALLY WATCHED
  • 00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:47.130
  • ONE PERSON TAKE A...A STACK
  • 00:03:47.130 --> 00:03:50.020
  • OF 30 TAPES OF THE EXACT
  • 00:03:50.020 --> 00:03:52.010
  • SAME TEACHING
  • 00:03:52.010 --> 00:03:52.240
  • AND ALL RAKE THEM OFF
  • 00:03:52.240 --> 00:03:53.260
  • INTO THIS BAG.
  • 00:03:53.260 --> 00:03:55.190
  • AND WHEN I SAW THAT I SAID,
  • 00:03:55.190 --> 00:03:57.200
  • YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:03:57.200 --> 00:03:58.060
  • THAT'S...THAT'S NOT WORKING
  • 00:03:58.060 --> 00:03:59.230
  • RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:03:59.230 --> 00:04:00.110
  • I'S...WE WANTED TO GIVE
  • 00:04:00.110 --> 00:04:01.210
  • OUR MATERIALS AWAY
  • 00:04:01.210 --> 00:04:03.170
  • ABSOLUTELY FREE,
  • 00:04:03.170 --> 00:04:04.140
  • BUT PEOPLE WERE ABUSING IT,
  • 00:04:04.140 --> 00:04:05.260
  • SO WHAT WE STARTED DOING,
  • 00:04:05.260 --> 00:04:07.180
  • WE PUT A LIMIT OF THREE
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:09.160
  • CASSETTE TAPES PER PERSON,
  • 00:04:09.160 --> 00:04:12.110
  • PER WEEK ON THERE
  • 00:04:12.110 --> 00:04:14.030
  • AND WE WOULD SEND THOSE OUT,
  • 00:04:14.030 --> 00:04:15.110
  • FREE OF CHARGE,
  • 00:04:15.110 --> 00:04:16.040
  • OR AT OUR MEETINGS,
  • 00:04:16.040 --> 00:04:17.040
  • WE WOULD SIT THERE
  • 00:04:17.040 --> 00:04:17.270
  • AND ASK YOU TO JUST TO TAKE ONE
  • 00:04:17.270 --> 00:04:19.090
  • OF EACH
  • 00:04:19.090 --> 00:04:20.060
  • AND THINGS LIKE THIS,
  • 00:04:20.060 --> 00:04:20.270
  • AND SO, THIS IS THE WAY
  • 00:04:20.270 --> 00:04:21.210
  • THAT WE STARTED OUR MINISTRY.
  • 00:04:21.210 --> 00:04:23.030
  • AND TODAY, WE STILL SAY,
  • 00:04:23.030 --> 00:04:24.290
  • FOR A SUGGESTED DONATION.
  • 00:04:24.290 --> 00:04:26.120
  • THAT'S BECAUSE I USED TO NOT
  • 00:04:26.120 --> 00:04:28.000
  • PUT ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY
  • 00:04:28.000 --> 00:04:29.210
  • ON A...ON A TEACHING
  • 00:04:29.210 --> 00:04:31.160
  • OR A BOOK OR THINGS LIKE THIS,
  • 00:04:31.160 --> 00:04:33.000
  • AND PEOPLE SAID,
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:33.210
  • WELL, WE WANT TO GIVE.
  • 00:04:33.210 --> 00:04:34.190
  • WE JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS
  • 00:04:34.190 --> 00:04:35.270
  • THAT YOU NEED
  • 00:04:35.270 --> 00:04:37.120
  • IN ORDER FOR US TO GIVE
  • 00:04:37.120 --> 00:04:39.120
  • AND GET THIS MATERIAL.
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:41.200
  • AND SO, AS A SERVICE
  • 00:04:41.200 --> 00:04:42.170
  • TO OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:04:42.170 --> 00:04:43.240
  • WE STARTED SAYING,
  • 00:04:43.240 --> 00:04:44.190
  • A SUGGESTED DONATION OF...
  • 00:04:44.190 --> 00:04:47.080
  • BUT DID YOU KNOW OVER 53%
  • 00:04:47.080 --> 00:04:50.010
  • OF THE PEOPLE
  • 00:04:50.010 --> 00:04:50.170
  • WHO CONTACT OUR MINISTRY
  • 00:04:50.170 --> 00:04:52.190
  • DON'T GIVE ANYTHING,
  • 00:04:52.190 --> 00:04:54.020
  • AND SO, WE SUGGEST
  • 00:04:54.020 --> 00:04:55.110
  • A CERTAIN AMOUNT PER MATERIAL
  • 00:04:55.110 --> 00:04:57.150
  • THAT WE GIVE OUT,
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:58.120
  • BUT IF A PERSON DOESN'T SEND
  • 00:04:58.120 --> 00:04:59.170
  • ANYTHING,
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:00.030
  • WE SEND IT TO THEM ANYWAY.
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:01.070
  • AND THE ONLY REASON
  • 00:05:01.070 --> 00:05:03.050
  • THAT I'M ABLE TO DO THAT
  • 00:05:03.050 --> 00:05:04.180
  • IS BECAUSE OUR PARTNERS
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:07.100
  • ENABLE US.
  • 00:05:07.100 --> 00:05:08.130
  • SO, PARTNERS TO US ARE,
  • 00:05:08.130 --> 00:05:10.150
  • I THINK, EVEN MORE VALUABLE
  • 00:05:10.150 --> 00:05:11.290
  • THAN THE AVERAGE MINISTRY,
  • 00:05:11.290 --> 00:05:13.050
  • BECAUSE IF PEOPLE DON'T
  • 00:05:13.050 --> 00:05:14.230
  • SEND IN MONEY
  • 00:05:14.230 --> 00:05:15.200
  • FOR THE MATERIALS,
  • 00:05:15.200 --> 00:05:17.220
  • YOU KNOW WE...OTHER MINISTRIES,
  • 00:05:17.220 --> 00:05:19.050
  • THEY JUST DON'T GET THE MATERIAL
  • 00:05:19.050 --> 00:05:20.170
  • SO THERE IS NO EXPENSE.
  • 00:05:20.170 --> 00:05:22.060
  • WE GO AHEAD AND WE SEND OUT
  • 00:05:22.060 --> 00:05:23.260
  • THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS
  • 00:05:23.260 --> 00:05:26.120
  • OF PIECES OF MATERIALS PER MONTH
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:28.250
  • TO PEOPLE WHO DON'T GIVE A THING
  • 00:05:28.250 --> 00:05:30.030
  • AND IT'S OUR PARTNERS
  • 00:05:30.030 --> 00:05:31.240
  • WHO ENABLE US TO DO THAT.
  • 00:05:31.290 --> 00:05:34.290
  • AND I KNOW THAT THERE ARE SOME
  • 00:05:34.290 --> 00:05:35.220
  • PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:05:35.220 --> 00:05:36.080
  • WELL, YOU JUST OUGHT TO
  • 00:05:36.080 --> 00:05:37.000
  • CHARGE EVERYBODY
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:37.200
  • AND MAKE EVERYBODY
  • 00:05:37.200 --> 00:05:38.110
  • GIVE SOMETHING.
  • 00:05:38.110 --> 00:05:39.160
  • YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES, THE PEOPLE
  • 00:05:39.160 --> 00:05:40.230
  • WHO ARE IN THE GREATEST NEED
  • 00:05:40.230 --> 00:05:43.060
  • OF THESE MATERIALS
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:44.250
  • ARE ACTUALLY THE LEAST ABLE
  • 00:05:44.250 --> 00:05:46.130
  • TO AFFORD IT,
  • 00:05:46.130 --> 00:05:48.100
  • AND I...I KNOW THAT PERSONALLY.
  • 00:05:48.100 --> 00:05:50.110
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO
  • 00:05:50.110 --> 00:05:50.250
  • INTO THE WHOLE DEAL.
  • 00:05:50.250 --> 00:05:53.200
  • BUT BACK WHEN JAMIE AND I
  • 00:05:53.200 --> 00:05:54.180
  • WERE REALLY POOR,
  • 00:05:54.180 --> 00:05:56.040
  • AND I MEAN, SHE WAS
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:56.230
  • EIGHT MONTHS PREGNANT,
  • 00:05:56.230 --> 00:05:58.180
  • WE WENT TO A MEETING,
  • 00:05:58.180 --> 00:05:59.280
  • AND WE HEARD A MAN
  • 00:05:59.280 --> 00:06:02.010
  • TEACH ON PROSPERITY
  • 00:06:02.010 --> 00:06:03.200
  • AND WE NEEDED EVERYTHING
  • 00:06:03.200 --> 00:06:04.230
  • HE SAID.
  • 00:06:04.230 --> 00:06:05.080
  • WE HAD BEEN ACTUALLY TWO WEEKS,
  • 00:06:05.080 --> 00:06:07.020
  • SHE WAS EIGHT MONTHS PREGNANT,
  • 00:06:07.020 --> 00:06:09.020
  • WE HAD BEEN TWO WEEKS
  • 00:06:09.020 --> 00:06:10.250
  • WITH NO FOOD.
  • 00:06:10.250 --> 00:06:12.140
  • I MEAN, WHEN I SAY NO FOOD,
  • 00:06:12.140 --> 00:06:13.280
  • I MEAN NO FOOD.
  • 00:06:13.280 --> 00:06:15.030
  • ALL WE HAD WAS WATER.
  • 00:06:15.030 --> 00:06:17.100
  • AND WE HADN'T EATEN
  • 00:06:17.100 --> 00:06:18.210
  • IN TWO WEEKS.
  • 00:06:18.210 --> 00:06:19.150
  • SHE WAS EIGHT MONTHS PREGNANT.
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:20.240
  • WE WENT AND HEARD THIS MAN
  • 00:06:20.240 --> 00:06:22.090
  • PREACH ON PROSPERITY,
  • 00:06:22.090 --> 00:06:23.120
  • AND MAN, IT WAS JUST LIKE,
  • 00:06:23.120 --> 00:06:25.130
  • YOU KNOW, WATER TO A...A MAN
  • 00:06:25.130 --> 00:06:27.270
  • WHO WAS DYING OF THIRST.
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:29.020
  • WE WERE EATING IT UP
  • 00:06:29.020 --> 00:06:30.090
  • AND WE WANTED ALL OF
  • 00:06:30.090 --> 00:06:31.220
  • THE TEACHING.
  • 00:06:31.220 --> 00:06:32.270
  • AND WE WENT BACK
  • 00:06:32.270 --> 00:06:33.200
  • AND LOOKED AT IT
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:34.140
  • AND YOU COULDN'T GET IT
  • 00:06:34.140 --> 00:06:36.130
  • IF YOU DIDN'T PAY FOR IT,
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:37.130
  • AND WE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY
  • 00:06:37.130 --> 00:06:38.200
  • TO PAY FOR IT.
  • 00:06:38.200 --> 00:06:39.250
  • AND I LOOKED OVER AT JAMIE
  • 00:06:39.250 --> 00:06:40.240
  • AND THERE WERE
  • 00:06:40.240 --> 00:06:42.000
  • TEARS IN HER EYES
  • 00:06:42.020 --> 00:06:45.020
  • AND MAN, WE NEEDED IT.
  • 00:06:45.020 --> 00:06:46.130
  • AND I...I LOOKED AT HER,
  • 00:06:46.130 --> 00:06:47.270
  • AND I THOUGHT, FATHER,
  • 00:06:47.270 --> 00:06:48.280
  • IF YOU EVER SHOW ME SOMETHING
  • 00:06:49.220 --> 00:06:52.220
  • THAT WILL HELP ANOTHER PERSON,
  • 00:06:52.220 --> 00:06:54.160
  • I'M NEVER GOING TO DENY THEM
  • 00:06:54.160 --> 00:06:55.240
  • ACCESS TO IT,
  • 00:06:55.240 --> 00:06:56.220
  • BECAUSE OF FINANCES.
  • 00:06:56.220 --> 00:06:58.190
  • AND SO, THAT WAS THE MOTIVATION
  • 00:06:58.190 --> 00:07:01.010
  • BEHIND ME GIVING ALL OF
  • 00:07:01.010 --> 00:07:02.070
  • OUR MATERIALS AWAY,
  • 00:07:02.070 --> 00:07:03.110
  • AND I COULD GIVE YOU
  • 00:07:03.110 --> 00:07:04.110
  • LOTS OF TESTIMONIES.
  • 00:07:04.110 --> 00:07:05.080
  • I WANT TO GET INTO THESE
  • 00:07:05.080 --> 00:07:06.050
  • SCRIPTURES,
  • 00:07:06.050 --> 00:07:06.220
  • BUT REAL QUICKLY, LET ME JUST
  • 00:07:06.220 --> 00:07:08.220
  • SHARE ONE TESTIMONY
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:10.220
  • OF A PERSON.
  • 00:07:10.220 --> 00:07:12.160
  • THIS IS WAY BACK IN THE 80s
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:15.020
  • AND THIS IS WHEN I WAS
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:16.020
  • ON RADIO ONLY,
  • 00:07:16.020 --> 00:07:17.130
  • AND THERE WAS A WOMAN
  • 00:07:17.130 --> 00:07:18.280
  • WHOSE HUSBAND THOUGHT
  • 00:07:18.280 --> 00:07:20.000
  • THAT ALL MEDIA MINISTERS,
  • 00:07:20.000 --> 00:07:21.240
  • RADIO, TELEVISION MINISTERS
  • 00:07:21.240 --> 00:07:23.120
  • WERE JUST CROOKS
  • 00:07:23.120 --> 00:07:24.120
  • AND THEY WERE IN IT
  • 00:07:24.120 --> 00:07:24.280
  • FOR THE MONEY.
  • 00:07:24.280 --> 00:07:26.120
  • AND SO, HE FORBID HIS WIFE
  • 00:07:26.120 --> 00:07:28.170
  • TO LISTEN TO ANY TELEVISION
  • 00:07:28.170 --> 00:07:30.050
  • OR RADIO.
  • 00:07:30.050 --> 00:07:31.180
  • AND ANYWAY, THIS WOMAN
  • 00:07:31.180 --> 00:07:32.120
  • WAS STILL ON THE SLY.
  • 00:07:32.120 --> 00:07:33.290
  • SHE WAS LISTENING TO THINGS
  • 00:07:33.290 --> 00:07:35.010
  • AND SHE FOUND ME,
  • 00:07:35.010 --> 00:07:36.220
  • AND WE WERE SAYING THAT,
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:37.250
  • YOU KNOW, YOU CAN HAVE THIS
  • 00:07:37.250 --> 00:07:38.260
  • FOR A GIFT OF ANY AMOUNT
  • 00:07:38.260 --> 00:07:40.080
  • OR IF YOU DON'T SEND ANYTHING,
  • 00:07:40.080 --> 00:07:41.130
  • WE'LL SEND IT TO YOU.
  • 00:07:41.130 --> 00:07:42.270
  • AND SO, WHEN SHE HEARD THAT,
  • 00:07:42.270 --> 00:07:43.260
  • SHE STARTED LISTENING TO ME,
  • 00:07:43.260 --> 00:07:45.020
  • AND AFTER A WHILE,
  • 00:07:45.020 --> 00:07:45.220
  • SHE CAME TO HER HUSBAND,
  • 00:07:45.220 --> 00:07:46.200
  • AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:07:46.200 --> 00:07:47.090
  • YOU'VE SAID THAT ALL MINISTERS
  • 00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:49.110
  • ARE JUST CROOKS
  • 00:07:49.110 --> 00:07:50.130
  • AND THEY'RE JUST
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:51.000
  • AFTER YOUR MONEY,
  • 00:07:51.000 --> 00:07:52.120
  • AND SHE SAYS, YOU CAN'T SAY THAT
  • 00:07:52.120 --> 00:07:53.220
  • ABOUT THIS GUY.
  • 00:07:53.220 --> 00:07:54.160
  • HE'S GIVING HIS THINGS AWAY.
  • 00:07:54.160 --> 00:07:56.100
  • AND SO, HIS NUMBER ONE OBJECTION
  • 00:07:56.100 --> 00:07:59.000
  • THAT HE HAD HAD
  • 00:07:59.000 --> 00:07:59.230
  • TO RADIO, TELEVISION MINISTERS
  • 00:07:59.230 --> 00:08:02.080
  • WAS THE FACT THAT THEY SOLD
  • 00:08:02.080 --> 00:08:03.080
  • EVERYTHING.
  • 00:08:03.080 --> 00:08:03.270
  • AND SO, WHEN SHE TOLD HIM
  • 00:08:03.270 --> 00:08:05.240
  • THAT I GAVE EVERYTHING AWAY,
  • 00:08:05.240 --> 00:08:07.090
  • HE COULDN'T ARGUE WITH THAT,
  • 00:08:07.090 --> 00:08:08.150
  • AND SO, HE STARTED LISTENING
  • 00:08:08.150 --> 00:08:10.110
  • JUST TO FIND SOMETHING
  • 00:08:10.110 --> 00:08:11.100
  • TO CRITICIZE ME OVER.
  • 00:08:11.100 --> 00:08:13.250
  • AND ANYWAY, HE LISTENED
  • 00:08:13.250 --> 00:08:15.290
  • LONG ENOUGH THAT HE GOT
  • 00:08:15.290 --> 00:08:16.250
  • BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:08:16.250 --> 00:08:18.040
  • BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:08:18.040 --> 00:08:19.150
  • THEIR WHOLE LIFE
  • 00:08:19.150 --> 00:08:20.080
  • WAS TURNED AROUND.
  • 00:08:20.080 --> 00:08:21.020
  • THEIR MARRIAGE WAS SAVED.
  • 00:08:21.020 --> 00:08:22.170
  • AND THEY CAME TO ONE
  • 00:08:22.170 --> 00:08:23.120
  • OF MY MEETINGS
  • 00:08:23.120 --> 00:08:24.090
  • AND THEY SHARED THAT TESTIMONY
  • 00:08:24.090 --> 00:08:25.160
  • WITH ME
  • 00:08:25.160 --> 00:08:26.030
  • AND THAT...THAT MAN AND WOMAN
  • 00:08:27.040 --> 00:08:30.040
  • BOTH TOLD ME, SAID,
  • 00:08:30.040 --> 00:08:31.260
  • THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GIVING
  • 00:08:31.260 --> 00:08:33.090
  • THESE MATERIALS AWAY.
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:34.140
  • WE WOULDN'T HAVE...MY HUSBAND
  • 00:08:34.140 --> 00:08:36.270
  • WOULDN'T BE BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:08:36.270 --> 00:08:37.290
  • WE WOULDN'T BE A PART OF THIS,
  • 00:08:37.290 --> 00:08:39.100
  • AND SO, ANYWAY,
  • 00:08:39.100 --> 00:08:40.100
  • THEY BECAME PARTNERS
  • 00:08:40.100 --> 00:08:41.110
  • JUST TO HELP US TO CONTINUE
  • 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:42.270
  • TO DO THAT.
  • 00:08:42.270 --> 00:08:43.280
  • I...I CAN TELL YOU ABOUT ONE GUY
  • 00:08:43.280 --> 00:08:45.080
  • WHO WAS SO DESPERATE,
  • 00:08:45.080 --> 00:08:46.140
  • HE FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY
  • 00:08:46.140 --> 00:08:48.000
  • AND HE WAS JUST IN A BAD PLACE,
  • 00:08:48.000 --> 00:08:50.140
  • AND HE WROTE IN
  • 00:08:50.140 --> 00:08:52.040
  • AND GOT AN ENTIRE LIBRARY
  • 00:08:52.040 --> 00:08:54.280
  • OF MY TEACHING.
  • 00:08:54.280 --> 00:08:55.190
  • BACK AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:08:55.190 --> 00:08:56.150
  • I'M NOT EVEN SURE
  • 00:08:56.150 --> 00:08:58.270
  • HOW MUCH THAT WAS.
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:00.150
  • BUT HE WROTE US A LETTER,
  • 00:09:00.150 --> 00:09:01.180
  • I DON'T DO THIS FOR EVERYBODY,
  • 00:09:01.180 --> 00:09:03.050
  • AND NOW, WE'VE GOT
  • 00:09:03.050 --> 00:09:03.290
  • SO MANY TEACHINGS,
  • 00:09:03.290 --> 00:09:05.090
  • I REALLY CAN'T DO THAT
  • 00:09:05.090 --> 00:09:06.160
  • WITH EVERYBODY.
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:07.130
  • BUT BACK THEN,
  • 00:09:07.130 --> 00:09:08.160
  • I SENT HIM AN ENTIRE LIBRARY
  • 00:09:08.160 --> 00:09:10.260
  • OF OUR MATERIALS.
  • 00:09:10.260 --> 00:09:11.220
  • AND WHAT HE DID,
  • 00:09:11.220 --> 00:09:12.120
  • HE LOCKED HIMSELF IN HIS GARAGE.
  • 00:09:12.120 --> 00:09:15.010
  • FOR EIGHT HOURS A DAY,
  • 00:09:15.010 --> 00:09:16.150
  • THIS MAN JUST PORED THROUGH
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:19.250
  • THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:09:19.250 --> 00:09:20.270
  • AND HE GOT HOLD OF THESE TRUTHS.
  • 00:09:20.270 --> 00:09:23.030
  • HE CAME OUT OF BANKRUPTCY.
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:25.150
  • HE WAS ABLE TO START A BUSINESS
  • 00:09:25.150 --> 00:09:27.000
  • AND THE MAN BEGAN TO PROSPER
  • 00:09:27.000 --> 00:09:29.040
  • TREMENDOUSLY,
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:29.250
  • AND AS A RESULT,
  • 00:09:29.250 --> 00:09:31.100
  • HE BECAME A PARTNER,
  • 00:09:31.100 --> 00:09:32.100
  • AND HE SAYS, DON'T EVER QUIT
  • 00:09:32.100 --> 00:09:34.110
  • GIVING AWAY THESE MATERIALS.
  • 00:09:34.110 --> 00:09:36.150
  • SO, ANYWAY, THE REASON I SAY
  • 00:09:36.150 --> 00:09:37.110
  • ALL OF THIS IS TO SAY
  • 00:09:37.110 --> 00:09:39.050
  • THAT OUR PARTNERS
  • 00:09:39.050 --> 00:09:40.140
  • ARE THE BACKBONE
  • 00:09:40.140 --> 00:09:41.050
  • OF THIS MINISTRY.
  • 00:09:41.050 --> 00:09:42.010
  • IT'S REALLY THE BACKBONE
  • 00:09:42.010 --> 00:09:43.010
  • OF ANY MINISTRY,
  • 00:09:43.010 --> 00:09:45.040
  • BUT ESPECIALLY OURS,
  • 00:09:45.040 --> 00:09:46.240
  • BECAUSE WE MAKE OUR MATERIALS
  • 00:09:46.240 --> 00:09:48.050
  • AVAILABLE.
  • 00:09:48.050 --> 00:09:49.090
  • AND I JUST WANT TO SAY
  • 00:09:49.090 --> 00:09:50.060
  • A SPECIAL THANK YOU
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:52.050
  • TO ALL OF THE PARTNERS
  • 00:09:52.050 --> 00:09:53.040
  • OF ANDREW WOMMACK MINISTRY.
  • 00:09:53.040 --> 00:09:55.080
  • YOU HAVE ENABLED US TO DO THINGS
  • 00:09:55.080 --> 00:09:57.100
  • THAT IT'S JUST PHENOMENAL.
  • 00:09:57.100 --> 00:09:58.120
  • AND YOU KNOW,
  • 00:09:58.120 --> 00:09:58.250
  • WITH OUR BIBLE COLLEGE,
  • 00:09:58.250 --> 00:09:59.220
  • $75 MILLION DOLLARS' WORTH
  • 00:10:01.220 --> 00:10:04.200
  • OF BUILDINGS DEBT-FREE
  • 00:10:04.200 --> 00:10:07.010
  • IN THE LAST SEVEN YEARS.
  • 00:10:07.010 --> 00:10:08.250
  • NOW, WE ALSO HAVE
  • 00:10:08.250 --> 00:10:09.220
  • A PARKING GARAGE
  • 00:10:09.220 --> 00:10:10.190
  • THAT I DID GO INTO DEBT.
  • 00:10:10.190 --> 00:10:11.270
  • I DIDN'T MEAN TO.
  • 00:10:11.270 --> 00:10:12.290
  • IT WAS A MISTAKE,
  • 00:10:12.290 --> 00:10:13.210
  • BUT NONETHELESS, WE HAVE
  • 00:10:13.210 --> 00:10:15.070
  • $75 MILLION DOLLARS' WORTH
  • 00:10:15.070 --> 00:10:17.170
  • OF BUILDINGS THAT ARE DEBT-FREE.
  • 00:10:17.170 --> 00:10:19.040
  • WE DID NOT CHARGE
  • 00:10:19.040 --> 00:10:20.180
  • OUR CHARIS BIBLE COLLEGE
  • 00:10:20.180 --> 00:10:22.030
  • STUDENTS FOR THAT.
  • 00:10:22.030 --> 00:10:23.140
  • MANY OF THEM JUST DON'T HAVE
  • 00:10:23.140 --> 00:10:25.020
  • THE MONEY TO PROVIDE
  • 00:10:25.020 --> 00:10:27.030
  • $75 MILLION IN SIX YEARS,
  • 00:10:28.130 --> 00:10:31.130
  • IN ADDITION TO WHAT
  • 00:10:31.130 --> 00:10:32.110
  • THEY'RE PAYING FOR TUITION
  • 00:10:32.110 --> 00:10:34.090
  • AND STUFF LIKE THIS,
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:35.000
  • AND SO, OUR PARTNERS
  • 00:10:35.000 --> 00:10:36.000
  • ARE THE ONES THAT'S MAKING
  • 00:10:36.000 --> 00:10:36.280
  • CHARIS BIBLE COLLEGE WORK.
  • 00:10:36.280 --> 00:10:39.060
  • I'M JUST SAYING THESE THINGS,
  • 00:10:39.060 --> 00:10:40.040
  • BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:10:40.040 --> 00:10:41.050
  • DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:10:41.050 --> 00:10:42.280
  • HOW ESSENTIAL PARTNERSHIP IS
  • 00:10:43.040 --> 00:10:46.040
  • TO THE MINISTRY.
  • 00:10:46.040 --> 00:10:46.260
  • THERE IS MANY PEOPLE THAT HAVE
  • 00:10:46.260 --> 00:10:48.010
  • THIS CONCEPT
  • 00:10:48.010 --> 00:10:48.280
  • OF WHEN YOU ASK FOR SOMETHING,
  • 00:10:48.280 --> 00:10:50.140
  • YOU SEND IN ENOUGH MONEY
  • 00:10:50.140 --> 00:10:51.200
  • TO COVER THE MATERIALS,
  • 00:10:51.200 --> 00:10:52.280
  • AND THAT'S GREAT.
  • 00:10:52.280 --> 00:10:54.060
  • I APPRECIATE PEOPLE
  • 00:10:54.060 --> 00:10:55.060
  • THAT DO THAT.
  • 00:10:55.060 --> 00:10:55.260
  • BUT, TO ME, PARTNERSHIP
  • 00:10:55.260 --> 00:10:58.000
  • IS WHEN YOU GIVE BEYOND
  • 00:10:58.000 --> 00:10:59.200
  • WHAT IT COSTS FOR YOU
  • 00:10:59.200 --> 00:11:01.100
  • TO GET THE GOSPEL,
  • 00:11:01.100 --> 00:11:03.030
  • AND INSTEAD, YOU ARE ENABLING ME
  • 00:11:03.030 --> 00:11:06.000
  • OR ANOTHER MINISTRY OR CHURCH,
  • 00:11:06.000 --> 00:11:07.170
  • YOU'RE ENABLING US
  • 00:11:07.170 --> 00:11:09.040
  • TO REACH BEYOND YOU
  • 00:11:09.040 --> 00:11:10.140
  • AND TO REACH OUT TO OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:11:10.140 --> 00:11:12.170
  • AND TO HELP BRING OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:11:12.170 --> 00:11:14.220
  • INTO THE FAMILY OF GOD.
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:16.120
  • SEE, THAT'S WHAT PARTNERSHIP IS.
  • 00:11:16.120 --> 00:11:18.070
  • OUR BILLS COME IN
  • 00:11:18.070 --> 00:11:19.010
  • ON A MONTHLY BASIS,
  • 00:11:19.010 --> 00:11:21.090
  • AND THEREFORE, IT'S THE PEOPLE
  • 00:11:21.090 --> 00:11:23.010
  • WHO GIVE ON A MONTHLY BASIS
  • 00:11:23.010 --> 00:11:25.130
  • WHO MAKE THE MINISTRY WORK.
  • 00:11:25.130 --> 00:11:27.090
  • THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS
  • 00:11:27.090 --> 00:11:28.040
  • THAT ARE SEASONAL.
  • 00:11:28.040 --> 00:11:29.080
  • YOU KNOW,
  • 00:11:29.080 --> 00:11:29.190
  • DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS,
  • 00:11:29.190 --> 00:11:32.190
  • THERE'S A LOT OF CHRISTIANS
  • 00:11:32.190 --> 00:11:34.060
  • THAT WILL TAKE THEIR VACATION
  • 00:11:34.060 --> 00:11:35.220
  • AND STUFF,
  • 00:11:35.220 --> 00:11:36.070
  • DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS
  • 00:11:36.070 --> 00:11:37.020
  • WHEN THEIR KIDS ARE OFF OF...
  • 00:11:37.020 --> 00:11:38.280
  • OUT OF SCHOOL
  • 00:11:38.280 --> 00:11:39.160
  • AND THINGS LIKE THIS.
  • 00:11:39.160 --> 00:11:40.130
  • AND MANY TIMES,
  • 00:11:40.130 --> 00:11:41.080
  • THEY TAKE THEIR GIVING
  • 00:11:41.080 --> 00:11:43.120
  • AND THAT'S WHAT THEY USE
  • 00:11:43.120 --> 00:11:44.230
  • TO FINANCE A VACATION
  • 00:11:44.230 --> 00:11:46.170
  • AND STUFF LIKE THAT.
  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:47.120
  • AND TYPICALLY, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:11:47.120 --> 00:11:48.270
  • FINANCES GO DOWN
  • 00:11:48.270 --> 00:11:50.010
  • DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS.
  • 00:11:50.010 --> 00:11:51.060
  • ALSO, IF THERE IS A NATIONAL
  • 00:11:51.060 --> 00:11:52.170
  • EMERGENCY,
  • 00:11:52.170 --> 00:11:53.190
  • YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IS,
  • 00:11:53.190 --> 00:11:54.170
  • PEOPLE...LIKE I REMEMBER
  • 00:11:54.170 --> 00:11:56.030
  • WHEN 9-11 HAPPENED,
  • 00:11:56.220 --> 00:11:59.220
  • THE LORD BLESSED US
  • 00:11:59.220 --> 00:12:00.270
  • SUPERNATURALLY,
  • 00:12:00.270 --> 00:12:01.280
  • BECAUSE OF SOME THINGS.
  • 00:12:01.280 --> 00:12:03.100
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO INTO THAT,
  • 00:12:03.100 --> 00:12:04.110
  • BUT TYPICALLY, I HAVE
  • 00:12:04.110 --> 00:12:06.100
  • MANY, MANY, MANY MINISTERS
  • 00:12:06.100 --> 00:12:08.120
  • THAT I COULD TELL YOU ABOUT.
  • 00:12:08.120 --> 00:12:09.060
  • I COULD CALL NAMES OF PEOPLE
  • 00:12:09.060 --> 00:12:11.050
  • THAT EVERY ONE OF YOU
  • 00:12:11.050 --> 00:12:11.280
  • WATCHING THIS
  • 00:12:11.280 --> 00:12:12.210
  • WOULD RECOGNIZE THESE NAMES.
  • 00:12:12.210 --> 00:12:14.030
  • SOME OF THE LEADERS
  • 00:12:14.030 --> 00:12:15.010
  • IN THE BODY OF CHRIST
  • 00:12:15.010 --> 00:12:16.180
  • AND THEY'RE FRIENDS OF MINE.
  • 00:12:16.180 --> 00:12:17.160
  • AND WHEN 9-11 HAPPENED,
  • 00:12:17.160 --> 00:12:19.110
  • ALL OF A SUDDEN THE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:12:19.110 --> 00:12:20.150
  • WERE GLUED
  • 00:12:20.150 --> 00:12:21.090
  • TO THEIR TELEVISION SETS,
  • 00:12:21.090 --> 00:12:22.180
  • NOT WATCHING
  • 00:12:22.180 --> 00:12:23.150
  • THE...THE CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES.
  • 00:12:23.150 --> 00:12:25.070
  • THEY WERE WATCHING THE NEWS.
  • 00:12:25.070 --> 00:12:26.160
  • THEY WANTED TO KNOW, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:12:26.160 --> 00:12:27.280
  • WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:12:27.280 --> 00:12:29.000
  • WAS THIS JUST THE FIRST VOLLEY
  • 00:12:29.000 --> 00:12:31.110
  • IN A WAR OF TERRORISM
  • 00:12:31.110 --> 00:12:33.100
  • AND WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:12:33.100 --> 00:12:34.070
  • AND SO, AS A RESULT, FOR WEEKS,
  • 00:12:34.070 --> 00:12:36.290
  • THEY WERE JUST WATCHING
  • 00:12:36.290 --> 00:12:38.060
  • THE NEWS.
  • 00:12:38.060 --> 00:12:38.220
  • THEY WEREN'T WATCHING
  • 00:12:38.220 --> 00:12:39.200
  • CHRISTIAN PROGRAMMING,
  • 00:12:39.200 --> 00:12:40.250
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT,
  • 00:12:40.250 --> 00:12:42.080
  • FINANCES GO DOWN.
  • 00:12:42.080 --> 00:12:43.170
  • OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND.
  • 00:12:43.170 --> 00:12:45.080
  • AND DID YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:12:45.080 --> 00:12:46.000
  • IT WAS OUR PARTNERS
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:47.260
  • THAT ENABLE US TO SURVIVE,
  • 00:12:47.260 --> 00:12:49.160
  • AND ACTUALLY, WE THRIVED.
  • 00:12:49.160 --> 00:12:51.000
  • OUR INCOME ACTUALLY WENT UP
  • 00:12:51.000 --> 00:12:53.080
  • DURING THAT TIME.
  • 00:12:53.080 --> 00:12:55.010
  • AND SO, I'M...THAT WAS,
  • 00:12:55.010 --> 00:12:56.080
  • BUT THAT WAS AGAINST THE AVERAGE
  • 00:12:56.080 --> 00:12:58.270
  • OF WHAT MOST MINISTRIES DID.
  • 00:12:58.270 --> 00:13:01.080
  • MATTER OF FACT,
  • 00:13:01.080 --> 00:13:01.240
  • I COULD NAME SOME MINISTRIES
  • 00:13:01.240 --> 00:13:03.020
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:13:03.020 --> 00:13:03.190
  • I'M NOT GOING TO CALL
  • 00:13:03.190 --> 00:13:04.090
  • THEIR NAME, BUT I MEAN,
  • 00:13:04.090 --> 00:13:05.170
  • WELL-KNOWN MINISTRIES
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:06.190
  • THAT WERE MUCH LARGER THAN ME
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:08.020
  • THAT NEARLY WENT BANKRUPT,
  • 00:13:08.020 --> 00:13:10.040
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE AFRAID.
  • 00:13:10.040 --> 00:13:12.030
  • WHEN THE RECESSION HIT
  • 00:13:12.030 --> 00:13:14.140
  • IN 2008, IN 2009,
  • 00:13:14.190 --> 00:13:17.190
  • DID YOU KNOW BARNA PUT OUT
  • 00:13:17.190 --> 00:13:18.240
  • A SURVEY,
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:19.130
  • AND THE NUMBER ONE WAY THAT,
  • 00:13:19.130 --> 00:13:21.290
  • THAT CHRISTIANS...
  • 00:13:21.290 --> 00:13:22.290
  • THIS WAS TO CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:13:22.290 --> 00:13:24.220
  • AND THE NUMBER ONE WAY
  • 00:13:24.220 --> 00:13:25.220
  • THAT CHRISTIANS WERE COPING
  • 00:13:25.220 --> 00:13:26.290
  • WITH THE RECESSION
  • 00:13:26.290 --> 00:13:27.270
  • WAS THAT THEY DECREASED
  • 00:13:27.270 --> 00:13:29.050
  • THEIR GIVING.
  • 00:13:29.050 --> 00:13:30.020
  • THAT WAS THE FIRST
  • 00:13:30.020 --> 00:13:31.040
  • IMMEDIATE THING THAT THEY DID.
  • 00:13:31.040 --> 00:13:33.120
  • IT SHOULD'VE BEEN JUST
  • 00:13:33.120 --> 00:13:34.080
  • THE EXACT OPPOSITE.
  • 00:13:34.080 --> 00:13:36.050
  • BUT MY POINT THAT I'M MAKING IS,
  • 00:13:36.050 --> 00:13:37.150
  • DURING NATIONAL CRISIS,
  • 00:13:37.150 --> 00:13:38.290
  • DURING HARD ECONOMIC TIMES,
  • 00:13:39.050 --> 00:13:42.050
  • DURING VACATION SEASONS,
  • 00:13:42.050 --> 00:13:44.050
  • DURING, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:13:44.050 --> 00:13:45.090
  • JUST ALL KINDS OF STUFF,
  • 00:13:45.090 --> 00:13:47.030
  • PEOPLE, THEIR GIVING FLUCTUATES.
  • 00:13:47.030 --> 00:13:49.220
  • OUR GIVING FLUCTUATES
  • 00:13:49.220 --> 00:13:51.060
  • 20, 30, 40%,
  • 00:13:51.060 --> 00:13:53.070
  • SOMETIMES PER MONTH.
  • 00:13:53.070 --> 00:13:55.070
  • AND DID YOU KNOW
  • 00:13:55.070 --> 00:13:55.210
  • IF IT WASN'T FOR PARTNERS,
  • 00:13:55.210 --> 00:13:57.180
  • PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T JUST GIVE
  • 00:13:57.180 --> 00:13:59.220
  • IN ORDER TO GET A PIECE
  • 00:13:59.220 --> 00:14:01.240
  • OF MA...MATERIALS,
  • 00:14:01.240 --> 00:14:03.080
  • BUT INSTEAD, PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT
  • 00:14:03.080 --> 00:14:05.020
  • THE MINISTRY ON A REGULAR BASIS,
  • 00:14:05.020 --> 00:14:07.120
  • THEIR...WE JUST WOULD NOT
  • 00:14:07.120 --> 00:14:08.220
  • BE ABLE TO FUNCTION THAT WAY.
  • 00:14:08.220 --> 00:14:10.190
  • OUR BILLS COME IN
  • 00:14:10.190 --> 00:14:11.230
  • ON A REGULAR BASIS.
  • 00:14:11.230 --> 00:14:13.000
  • THEY DON'T GO SEASONAL.
  • 00:14:13.000 --> 00:14:14.150
  • THEY DON'T GO BASED ON
  • 00:14:14.150 --> 00:14:15.200
  • WHAT THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY IS
  • 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:18.060
  • OR THE VACATION SEASON.
  • 00:14:18.060 --> 00:14:20.060
  • AND IF IT WASN'T FOR PEOPLE
  • 00:14:20.060 --> 00:14:21.150
  • WHO WERE GIVING
  • 00:14:21.150 --> 00:14:22.040
  • ON A REGULAR CONSISTENT BASIS,
  • 00:14:22.080 --> 00:14:25.080
  • WE WOULDN'T MAKE IT.
  • 00:14:25.080 --> 00:14:26.080
  • AND YOU KNOW, I'M NOT SAY...
  • 00:14:26.080 --> 00:14:26.290
  • I'M JUST USING THIS
  • 00:14:26.290 --> 00:14:28.030
  • TO EXPLAIN THINGS TO YOU
  • 00:14:28.030 --> 00:14:29.210
  • THAT MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:14:29.210 --> 00:14:31.030
  • DON'T THINK ABOUT.
  • 00:14:31.030 --> 00:14:33.170
  • YOU KNOW, I'M NOT SAYING
  • 00:14:33.170 --> 00:14:34.090
  • THAT THIS IS EVIL.
  • 00:14:34.090 --> 00:14:35.140
  • I'M NOT SAYING IT'S BAD.
  • 00:14:35.140 --> 00:14:36.080
  • I'M JUST SAYING IT'S THE WAY
  • 00:14:36.080 --> 00:14:37.090
  • IT IS THAT MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:14:37.090 --> 00:14:39.040
  • LOOK AT THINGS
  • 00:14:39.040 --> 00:14:39.250
  • JUST FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:42.010
  • WE DON'T THINK ABOUT
  • 00:14:42.010 --> 00:14:42.260
  • THE OTHER SITUATION
  • 00:14:42.260 --> 00:14:44.090
  • AND I'M TRYING TO TELL YOU
  • 00:14:44.090 --> 00:14:45.030
  • THAT YOUR CHURCH,
  • 00:14:45.030 --> 00:14:46.200
  • OTHER MINISTRIES,
  • 00:14:46.200 --> 00:14:47.290
  • ALL OF THESE KIND OF THINGS,
  • 00:14:47.290 --> 00:14:49.050
  • IT'S PARTNERSHIP,
  • 00:14:49.050 --> 00:14:51.010
  • IT'S PEOPLE WHO GIVE
  • 00:14:51.010 --> 00:14:52.050
  • ON A REGULAR BASIS,
  • 00:14:52.050 --> 00:14:53.110
  • IT'S THE ONES WHO CAN
  • 00:14:53.110 --> 00:14:54.130
  • BE COUNTED ON
  • 00:14:54.130 --> 00:14:55.260
  • THAT MAKE THE GOSPEL
  • 00:14:55.260 --> 00:14:57.220
  • OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WORK.
  • 00:14:57.220 --> 00:15:00.200
  • AND I'M JUST TRYING TO SAY THAT,
  • 00:15:00.200 --> 00:15:02.010
  • MAN, I APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS,
  • 00:15:02.010 --> 00:15:03.290
  • AND I'M TRYING TO ENCOURAGE YOU
  • 00:15:03.290 --> 00:15:06.150
  • ABOUT BECOMING A PARTNER.
  • 00:15:07.040 --> 00:15:10.040
  • AND YES, YOU COULD BECOME
  • 00:15:10.040 --> 00:15:10.270
  • A PARTNER WITH OUR MINISTRY,
  • 00:15:10.270 --> 00:15:12.090
  • BUT IT'S NOT LIMITED TO US.
  • 00:15:12.090 --> 00:15:13.210
  • YOU JUST NEED TO PARTNER UP.
  • 00:15:13.210 --> 00:15:15.260
  • YOU KNOW, YOU NEED TO FIND
  • 00:15:15.260 --> 00:15:16.210
  • SOMEBODY WHO YOU SHARE
  • 00:15:16.210 --> 00:15:18.220
  • IN THEIR VISION,
  • 00:15:18.220 --> 00:15:20.020
  • THAT YOU HAVE THE SAME VISION,
  • 00:15:20.020 --> 00:15:22.000
  • THAT YOU LOVE
  • 00:15:22.000 --> 00:15:22.240
  • WHAT THEY'RE DOING.
  • 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:23.180
  • AND I'M NOT SAYING THIS
  • 00:15:23.180 --> 00:15:24.150
  • JUST ABOUT US.
  • 00:15:24.150 --> 00:15:25.090
  • YOU COULD DO THIS
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:26.010
  • WITH OTHER MINISTRIES,
  • 00:15:26.010 --> 00:15:27.070
  • WITH YOUR CHURCH.
  • 00:15:27.070 --> 00:15:28.090
  • YOU NEED TO FIND SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:15:28.090 --> 00:15:29.160
  • THAT ARE OVERSEAS MINISTERING
  • 00:15:29.160 --> 00:15:31.290
  • IN SOME OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:15:31.290 --> 00:15:32.260
  • THAT YOU WOULD LOVE
  • 00:15:32.260 --> 00:15:33.180
  • TO SEE HAPPEN.
  • 00:15:33.180 --> 00:15:34.250
  • AND YOU NEED TO BECOME
  • 00:15:34.250 --> 00:15:35.240
  • A REGULAR SUPPORTER WITH THEM.
  • 00:15:35.240 --> 00:15:38.110
  • NOT JUST AN OCCASIONAL
  • 00:15:38.110 --> 00:15:39.200
  • SUPPORTER.
  • 00:15:39.200 --> 00:15:40.220
  • AND AGAIN, I'M NOT SAYING THAT
  • 00:15:40.220 --> 00:15:42.050
  • THAT'S BAD TO GIVE OCCASIONALLY
  • 00:15:42.050 --> 00:15:44.110
  • TO THINGS.
  • 00:15:44.110 --> 00:15:44.260
  • I DO THAT TO CERTAIN DEALS.
  • 00:15:44.260 --> 00:15:46.150
  • I DON'T SUPPORT
  • 00:15:46.150 --> 00:15:47.130
  • EVERY SINGLE PERSON.
  • 00:15:47.130 --> 00:15:49.080
  • YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT...
  • 00:15:49.080 --> 00:15:50.100
  • I FORGET THE EXACT NUMBER NOW,
  • 00:15:50.100 --> 00:15:51.210
  • BUT I, IN THE PAST,
  • 00:15:51.210 --> 00:15:52.190
  • I'VE COUNTED UP,
  • 00:15:52.190 --> 00:15:53.100
  • AND WE HAVE 140-SOMETHING
  • 00:15:53.100 --> 00:15:55.130
  • DIFFERENT MINISTRIES
  • 00:15:55.130 --> 00:15:57.150
  • THAT MY MINISTRY SUPPORTS
  • 00:15:57.150 --> 00:15:59.290
  • ON A FAIRLY REGULAR BASIS.
  • 00:15:59.290 --> 00:16:01.220
  • OF COURSE, JAMIE AND I,
  • 00:16:01.220 --> 00:16:02.220
  • WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT WE GIVE TO
  • 00:16:02.220 --> 00:16:04.100
  • OCCASIONALLY ALSO.
  • 00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:06.120
  • SO, WE HAVE, LIKE ,
  • 00:16:06.120 --> 00:16:07.010
  • 140 DIFFERENT MINISTRIES
  • 00:16:07.010 --> 00:16:08.250
  • THAT WE SUPPORT,
  • 00:16:08.250 --> 00:16:10.120
  • BUT THERE ARE SOME
  • 00:16:10.120 --> 00:16:11.140
  • THAT I GIVE TO
  • 00:16:11.140 --> 00:16:12.090
  • ON A REGULAR BASIS.
  • 00:16:12.090 --> 00:16:13.200
  • I AM JUST LINKED TO THEM.
  • 00:16:13.200 --> 00:16:15.140
  • I BELIEVE THAT GOD PUT ME
  • 00:16:15.140 --> 00:16:17.190
  • IN TOUCH WITH THEM
  • 00:16:17.190 --> 00:16:18.180
  • AND WE GIVE TO THEM
  • 00:16:18.180 --> 00:16:19.250
  • ON A MONTHLY BASIS,
  • 00:16:19.250 --> 00:16:21.220
  • AND YOU NEED TO DO THAT.
  • 00:16:21.220 --> 00:16:23.070
  • YOU NEED TO CONSIDER
  • 00:16:23.070 --> 00:16:24.040
  • PARTNERSHIP.
  • 00:16:24.040 --> 00:16:25.170
  • AND YOU KNOW, I'M RUN...
  • 00:16:25.170 --> 00:16:27.100
  • I'M RUNNING SHORT OF TIME.
  • 00:16:27.100 --> 00:16:28.110
  • I THINK THE THINGS
  • 00:16:28.110 --> 00:16:29.000
  • I'VE SAID TODAY HAVE BEEN GOOD
  • 00:16:29.000 --> 00:16:30.250
  • AND I THINK IT'S THINGS
  • 00:16:30.250 --> 00:16:31.250
  • THAT NEED TO BE SAID,
  • 00:16:31.250 --> 00:16:32.230
  • BECAUSE, AGAIN,
  • 00:16:32.230 --> 00:16:33.150
  • THE AVERAGE PERSON ONLY LOOKS
  • 00:16:33.150 --> 00:16:34.190
  • AT THINGS FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:16:34.190 --> 00:16:36.250
  • AND YOU DON'T THINK ABOUT
  • 00:16:36.250 --> 00:16:38.000
  • ALL OF THIS,
  • 00:16:38.000 --> 00:16:39.010
  • BUT IT HELPS FOR YOU
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:40.000
  • TO RECOGNIZE THAT IT'S PARTNERS
  • 00:16:40.000 --> 00:16:42.010
  • THAT MAKE ANY MINISTRY
  • 00:16:42.010 --> 00:16:43.180
  • OR CHURCH WORK -
  • 00:16:43.180 --> 00:16:45.250
  • THE PEOPLE WHO GIVE
  • 00:16:45.250 --> 00:16:46.180
  • ON A REGULAR BASIS.
  • 00:16:46.180 --> 00:16:48.150
  • AND I WANT TO JUST ENCOURAGE YOU
  • 00:16:48.150 --> 00:16:50.130
  • THAT YOU NEED TO DO THIS.
  • 00:16:50.130 --> 00:16:51.160
  • IT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUST
  • 00:16:51.160 --> 00:16:53.010
  • TAKING SEED AND JUST THROWING IT
  • 00:16:53.010 --> 00:16:55.180
  • ANYWHERE.
  • 00:16:55.180 --> 00:16:57.230
  • MARK, CHAPTER 4, TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:16:57.230 --> 00:16:59.270
  • THE MAN WHO SOWED SEED
  • 00:16:59.270 --> 00:17:01.010
  • AND IT FELL ON...ON HARD-PACKED
  • 00:17:01.010 --> 00:17:03.270
  • GROUND,
  • 00:17:03.270 --> 00:17:04.130
  • WHERE IT WAS LIKE A PATH
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:05.230
  • AND IT HAD BEEN PACKED DOWN.
  • 00:17:05.230 --> 00:17:06.250
  • ANOTHER ONE, IT FELL IN
  • 00:17:06.250 --> 00:17:08.020
  • AMONG STONES,
  • 00:17:08.020 --> 00:17:09.120
  • SO THAT IT WAS ABLE
  • 00:17:09.120 --> 00:17:10.080
  • TO GERMINATE,
  • 00:17:10.080 --> 00:17:10.290
  • BUT IT DIDN'T HAVE THE DEPTH
  • 00:17:10.290 --> 00:17:11.290
  • OF EARTH.
  • 00:17:11.290 --> 00:17:12.230
  • ANOTHER ONE, IT FELL IN A PLACE
  • 00:17:12.230 --> 00:17:13.260
  • WHERE THERE WAS ALL OF
  • 00:17:13.260 --> 00:17:14.170
  • THESE WEEDS,
  • 00:17:14.170 --> 00:17:15.080
  • AND ONLY ONE OUT OF FOUR
  • 00:17:15.080 --> 00:17:17.070
  • OF THOSE SEEDS
  • 00:17:17.070 --> 00:17:18.020
  • EVER BROUGHT FRUIT
  • 00:17:18.020 --> 00:17:19.210
  • TO PERFECTION.
  • 00:17:19.210 --> 00:17:21.000
  • SO, THAT'S THE WAY
  • 00:17:21.000 --> 00:17:21.210
  • THAT SOME PEOPLE DO IT.
  • 00:17:21.210 --> 00:17:22.160
  • THEY JUST SCATTER IT EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:17:22.160 --> 00:17:24.040
  • BUT THEN OVER THE YEARS,
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:26.270
  • WE'VE PROGRESSED TO WHERE,
  • 00:17:26.270 --> 00:17:28.140
  • NOW, WE DIG FURROWS
  • 00:17:28.140 --> 00:17:30.130
  • AND WE PLACE OUR SEEDS
  • 00:17:30.130 --> 00:17:31.240
  • ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:17:31.240 --> 00:17:34.110
  • WE SPACE THEM,
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:35.230
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT,
  • 00:17:35.230 --> 00:17:37.100
  • YOU GET A MUCH GREATER HARVEST.
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:40.170
  • YOU KNOW, I'M JUST PULLING
  • 00:17:40.170 --> 00:17:41.050
  • THESE FIGURES.
  • 00:17:41.050 --> 00:17:41.250
  • I DON'T KNOW THE EXACT THING,
  • 00:17:41.250 --> 00:17:43.000
  • BUT LET'S JUST SAY THAT,
  • 00:17:43.000 --> 00:17:44.160
  • YOU KNOW, SOWING A WHOLE
  • 00:17:44.160 --> 00:17:46.070
  • SACK OF SEEDS,
  • 00:17:46.070 --> 00:17:47.240
  • IF YOU JUST SCATTER THEM
  • 00:17:47.240 --> 00:17:48.210
  • LIKE THIS...LET'S SAY
  • 00:17:48.210 --> 00:17:49.250
  • THAT 20% OF THEM
  • 00:17:49.250 --> 00:17:51.260
  • ARE IN THIS PARABLE
  • 00:17:51.260 --> 00:17:52.230
  • FROM MARK, CHAPTER 4,
  • 00:17:52.230 --> 00:17:54.150
  • 25% OF THE SEEDS PRODUCED.
  • 00:17:54.150 --> 00:17:57.100
  • AND THEN OUT OF THOSE,
  • 00:17:57.100 --> 00:17:58.160
  • THERE WAS VARYING AMOUNTS,
  • 00:17:58.160 --> 00:17:59.260
  • THIRTY, SIXTY,
  • 00:17:59.260 --> 00:18:00.240
  • AND A HUNDREDFOLD.
  • 00:18:00.240 --> 00:18:02.000
  • BUT WHEN YOU PLANT YOUR SEEDS
  • 00:18:02.000 --> 00:18:03.140
  • IN A FURROW,
  • 00:18:03.140 --> 00:18:04.050
  • YOU GET NEARLY 100%
  • 00:18:04.050 --> 00:18:06.210
  • OF THOSE PRODUCING.
  • 00:18:06.210 --> 00:18:08.050
  • SO, IF YOU HAVE A SACK OF SEED
  • 00:18:08.050 --> 00:18:09.200
  • AND ONLY 25% OF IT
  • 00:18:09.200 --> 00:18:11.160
  • ACTUALLY PRODUCES,
  • 00:18:11.160 --> 00:18:12.110
  • WELL, THEN, YOU'VE WASTED
  • 00:18:12.110 --> 00:18:14.040
  • THREE-FOURTHS OF THOSE SEEDS.
  • 00:18:14.040 --> 00:18:15.150
  • THE BIRDS ATE THEM UP.
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:16.230
  • THEY WERE CHOKED BY WEEDS
  • 00:18:16.230 --> 00:18:18.260
  • AND THINGS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:19.270
  • BUT WHEN YOU PLANT THEM
  • 00:18:19.270 --> 00:18:21.060
  • IN FURROWS,
  • 00:18:21.060 --> 00:18:21.280
  • WHEN YOU DO IT ON PURPOSE,
  • 00:18:21.280 --> 00:18:24.050
  • AND YOU DO IT SYSTEMATICALLY,
  • 00:18:24.050 --> 00:18:27.050
  • IT PRODUCES A MUCH GREATER
  • 00:18:27.050 --> 00:18:29.100
  • PERCENT.
  • 00:18:29.100 --> 00:18:29.240
  • YOU WILL HAVE MUCH GREATER
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:31.170
  • HARVEST.
  • 00:18:31.170 --> 00:18:32.210
  • EVERYBODY WANTS A LARGE HARVEST,
  • 00:18:32.210 --> 00:18:34.130
  • BUT THEY DON'T PAY ATTENTION
  • 00:18:34.130 --> 00:18:36.050
  • TO HOW THEY SOW THE SEED.
  • 00:18:36.050 --> 00:18:38.000
  • SO, JUST LIKE A MAN
  • 00:18:38.000 --> 00:18:38.230
  • WHO SCATTER SEED,
  • 00:18:38.230 --> 00:18:39.210
  • HE'S NOT GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:18:39.210 --> 00:18:40.130
  • THE SAME HARVEST
  • 00:18:40.130 --> 00:18:41.080
  • AS A MAN WHO DIGS A FURROW
  • 00:18:41.080 --> 00:18:42.250
  • AND PLANTS IT.
  • 00:18:42.250 --> 00:18:43.230
  • IT'S THE SAME THING
  • 00:18:43.230 --> 00:18:44.220
  • ABOUT PARTNERSHIP.
  • 00:18:44.220 --> 00:18:46.060
  • IF YOU JUST GIVE OCCASIONALLY
  • 00:18:46.060 --> 00:18:48.060
  • WHENEVER YOU FEEL LIKE IT,
  • 00:18:48.060 --> 00:18:49.120
  • OR IF YOU ARE GIVING
  • 00:18:49.120 --> 00:18:50.240
  • TO GET SOME MATERIALS,
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:53.090
  • DID YOU KNOW IN ONE WAY
  • 00:18:53.090 --> 00:18:55.100
  • THAT'S NOT EVEN GIVING.
  • 00:18:55.100 --> 00:18:57.070
  • THAT'S PURCHASING.
  • 00:18:57.070 --> 00:18:59.230
  • THERE'S A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:18:59.230 --> 00:19:01.060
  • BUT WHEN YOU START GIVING
  • 00:19:01.060 --> 00:19:02.180
  • THAT IS BEYOND WHAT YOU NEED
  • 00:19:02.180 --> 00:19:05.000
  • AND WHAT YOU ARE GETTING
  • 00:19:05.000 --> 00:19:06.040
  • AND YOU START GIVING TO BE ABLE
  • 00:19:06.040 --> 00:19:07.180
  • TO BLESS THE CHURCH,
  • 00:19:07.180 --> 00:19:09.110
  • TO BLESS THE MINISTRY,
  • 00:19:09.110 --> 00:19:10.160
  • AND TO JUST GET THE GOSPEL OUT.
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:12.180
  • AND WHEN YOU DO IT
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:13.080
  • ON A SYSTEMATIC BASIS,
  • 00:19:13.080 --> 00:19:15.110
  • IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE
  • 00:19:15.110 --> 00:19:16.250
  • IN THE RETURN THAT YOU GET
  • 00:19:16.250 --> 00:19:18.120
  • OFF OF YOUR GIVING.
  • 00:19:18.120 --> 00:19:19.290
  • IN 1 CORINTHIANS, CHAPTER 16,
  • 00:19:19.290 --> 00:19:22.020
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID,
  • 00:19:22.020 --> 00:19:23.120
  • LET EVERY MAN ON THE FIRST DAY
  • 00:19:23.120 --> 00:19:25.270
  • OF THE WEEK LAY BY IN STORE
  • 00:19:25.270 --> 00:19:28.200
  • AS GOD HAS PROSPERED HIM,
  • 00:19:28.200 --> 00:19:30.060
  • SO THAT THERE BE NO GATHERINGS
  • 00:19:30.060 --> 00:19:31.140
  • WHEN I COME.
  • 00:19:31.140 --> 00:19:32.290
  • AND WHAT HE WAS SAYING IS,
  • 00:19:32.290 --> 00:19:34.010
  • YOU NEED TO SYSTEMATICALLY GIVE.
  • 00:19:34.010 --> 00:19:36.110
  • IF A PERSON PUTS MONEY ASIDE
  • 00:19:36.110 --> 00:19:38.170
  • EVERY SINGLE WEEK
  • 00:19:38.170 --> 00:19:40.120
  • AND THEN GIVES,
  • 00:19:40.120 --> 00:19:41.250
  • I GUARANTEE YOU,
  • 00:19:41.250 --> 00:19:42.140
  • YOU'RE GOING TO WIND UP
  • 00:19:42.140 --> 00:19:43.080
  • GIVING MUCH, MUCH MORE THAN
  • 00:19:43.080 --> 00:19:46.020
  • A PERSON THAT JUST GIVES
  • 00:19:46.020 --> 00:19:47.020
  • OCCASIONALLY
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:47.240
  • WHENEVER YOU FEEL LIKE IT,
  • 00:19:47.240 --> 00:19:49.000
  • WHENEVER THE NEED ARISES
  • 00:19:49.000 --> 00:19:50.130
  • OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:19:50.130 --> 00:19:52.120
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE MENTIONED
  • 00:19:52.120 --> 00:19:53.000
  • THIS BEFORE,
  • 00:19:53.000 --> 00:19:53.200
  • BUT MY WIFE AND I,
  • 00:19:53.200 --> 00:19:54.240
  • WE HAVE A GIVE-ACCOUNT
  • 00:19:54.240 --> 00:19:56.180
  • WHERE WE PUT 25% OF EVERYTHING
  • 00:19:56.180 --> 00:19:58.250
  • THAT WE GET IN THIS GIVE ACCOUNT
  • 00:19:58.250 --> 00:20:00.050
  • AND THEN WE GIVE
  • 00:20:00.050 --> 00:20:01.010
  • MUCH, MUCH MORE THAN THAT.
  • 00:20:01.010 --> 00:20:03.110
  • YOU KNOW, WE...WE JUST,
  • 00:20:03.110 --> 00:20:04.240
  • YESTERDAY, WE GAVE AWAY...
  • 00:20:04.240 --> 00:20:07.100
  • WE GAVE AWAY A YEAR'S INCOME
  • 00:20:07.100 --> 00:20:08.210
  • YESTERDAY,
  • 00:20:08.210 --> 00:20:09.200
  • AND SO, WE...WE SOMETIMES
  • 00:20:09.200 --> 00:20:11.220
  • GIVE MUCH, MUCH MORE THAN
  • 00:20:11.220 --> 00:20:13.090
  • JUST 25% OF WHAT'S COMING IN.
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:16.250
  • AND SO, IF YOU DO IT
  • 00:20:16.250 --> 00:20:18.020
  • ON A DELIBERATE BASIS
  • 00:20:18.020 --> 00:20:19.210
  • AND SET THIS MONEY ASIDE,
  • 00:20:19.210 --> 00:20:21.210
  • YOU'RE GOING TO WIND UP GIVING
  • 00:20:21.210 --> 00:20:23.000
  • AND BEING A GREATER BLESSING,
  • 00:20:23.000 --> 00:20:24.080
  • AND THEREFORE, THERE WILL
  • 00:20:24.080 --> 00:20:25.110
  • BE A GREATER HARVEST.
  • 00:20:25.110 --> 00:20:27.120
  • SO, I'M SAYING ALL OF
  • 00:20:27.120 --> 00:20:28.080
  • THESE THINGS ABOUT PARTNERSHIP
  • 00:20:28.080 --> 00:20:30.210
  • AND I'M GOING TO BE GOING
  • 00:20:30.210 --> 00:20:31.250
  • INTO A LOT MORE DETAIL.
  • 00:20:31.250 --> 00:20:33.140
  • TODAY, I WAS...I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:20:33.140 --> 00:20:34.280
  • WHAT I WAS DOING.
  • 00:20:34.280 --> 00:20:35.200
  • I WAS JUST GIVING YOU
  • 00:20:35.200 --> 00:20:36.140
  • BEHIND THE SCENES
  • 00:20:36.140 --> 00:20:37.200
  • ABOUT HOW THINGS WORK.
  • 00:20:37.200 --> 00:20:39.160
  • AND MANY TIMES,
  • 00:20:39.160 --> 00:20:40.080
  • PEOPLE DON'T THINK ABOUT THIS,
  • 00:20:40.080 --> 00:20:42.000
  • AND SO, I'M SAYING THIS
  • 00:20:42.000 --> 00:20:43.070
  • NOT JUST FOR MYSELF.
  • 00:20:43.070 --> 00:20:44.150
  • I'M SAYING THIS FOR YOU
  • 00:20:44.150 --> 00:20:46.140
  • AND FOR ALL MINISTRIES,
  • 00:20:46.140 --> 00:20:47.270
  • FOR CHURCHES THAT YOU
  • 00:20:47.270 --> 00:20:48.250
  • NEED TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:20:48.250 --> 00:20:50.000
  • THEY DEPEND UPON PEOPLE.
  • 00:20:50.000 --> 00:20:52.150
  • OR LET ME SAY IT THIS WAY.
  • 00:20:52.150 --> 00:20:53.240
  • THEY NEED PEOPLE WHO CAN GIVE
  • 00:20:54.050 --> 00:20:57.050
  • ON A CONSISTENT REGULAR BASIS,
  • 00:20:57.050 --> 00:21:00.020
  • SOMEONE THAT THEY CAN COUNT ON.
  • 00:21:00.020 --> 00:21:02.090
  • BECAUSE THEIR BILLS COME IN
  • 00:21:02.090 --> 00:21:03.110
  • ON A CONSISTENT BASIS,
  • 00:21:03.110 --> 00:21:05.070
  • THEY NEED PEOPLE
  • 00:21:05.070 --> 00:21:05.280
  • THAT GIVE CONSISTENTLY.
  • 00:21:05.280 --> 00:21:07.150
  • THEY NEED THAT BASE.
  • 00:21:07.150 --> 00:21:09.150
  • AND OF COURSE,
  • 00:21:09.150 --> 00:21:10.000
  • THERE WILL ALWAYS BE PEOPLE
  • 00:21:10.000 --> 00:21:12.220
  • WHO JUST GIVE OCCASIONALLY
  • 00:21:12.220 --> 00:21:15.100
  • ONCE...YOU KNOW, ONCE EVERY...
  • 00:21:15.100 --> 00:21:17.040
  • ONCE IN A WHILE
  • 00:21:17.040 --> 00:21:17.210
  • AND THAT'S OKAY
  • 00:21:17.210 --> 00:21:18.180
  • AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG
  • 00:21:18.180 --> 00:21:19.140
  • WITH THAT,
  • 00:21:19.140 --> 00:21:20.000
  • BUT I'M JUST SAYING
  • 00:21:20.000 --> 00:21:20.240
  • THAT PARTNERS ARE SPECIAL.
  • 00:21:20.240 --> 00:21:23.080
  • TO JAMIE AND ME,
  • 00:21:23.080 --> 00:21:24.070
  • PARTNERS ARE WHAT MAKES
  • 00:21:24.070 --> 00:21:25.140
  • THIS MINISTRY WORK.
  • 00:21:25.140 --> 00:21:27.080
  • AND YOU KNOW, WE HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:21:27.080 --> 00:21:28.010
  • OVER $5 MILLION A MONTH
  • 00:21:28.010 --> 00:21:30.170
  • AND WE COULD NOT DO IT
  • 00:21:30.170 --> 00:21:31.280
  • IF WE DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:21:31.280 --> 00:21:32.290
  • 44.000 PARTNERS THAT SUPPLY
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:36.130
  • ABOUT ONE-THIRD OF THAT AMOUNT
  • 00:21:36.130 --> 00:21:39.000
  • ON A CONSISTENT BASIS.
  • 00:21:39.000 --> 00:21:40.250
  • AND THEN THE REST,
  • 00:21:40.250 --> 00:21:41.190
  • IT FLUCTUATES BASED ON
  • 00:21:41.190 --> 00:21:42.250
  • WHAT OFFERS WE ARE MAKING,
  • 00:21:42.250 --> 00:21:44.120
  • BASED ON WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:21:44.120 --> 00:21:45.240
  • IN THE NATION,
  • 00:21:45.240 --> 00:21:46.180
  • AND WHETHER PEOPLE'S ATTENTION
  • 00:21:46.180 --> 00:21:47.240
  • IS DRAWN AWAY TO SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:21:47.240 --> 00:21:50.050
  • BUT OUR PARTNERS
  • 00:21:50.050 --> 00:21:50.280
  • IS WHAT MAKES IT WORK.
  • 00:21:50.280 --> 00:21:51.250

  • 00:21:55.250 --> 00:21:56.250
  • OR WITH SOME OTHER MINISTRY,
  • 00:21:56.250 --> 00:21:58.070

  • FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:24:09.140 --> 00:24:10.070
  • GOD JUST TRANSFORMED MY LIFE

  • AND IT'S JUST LIKE THE GUY
  • 00:24:12.170 --> 00:24:14.030
  • THAT THE LORD TOLD HIM, SAYS,
  • 00:24:14.030 --> 00:24:15.260
  • DON'T GO TELL ANYBODY
  • 00:24:15.260 --> 00:24:16.250

  • BUT BEYOND THAT,
  • 00:24:26.140 --> 00:24:27.080
  • I BELIEVE GOD'S GOT

  • A SPECIFIC CALL ON MY LIFE,
  • 00:24:28.060 --> 00:24:30.000

  • 00:24:38.210 --> 00:24:41.110
  • THAT I'VE RAISED YOU UP
  • 00:24:41.110 --> 00:24:42.170
  • IS TO CHANGE PEOPLE'S OPINION
