  • - WELCOME TO GOSPEL TRUTH
  • 00:00:00.210 --> 00:00:03.210
  • WITH ANDREW WOMMACK,
  • 00:00:03.210 --> 00:00:04.290
  • A TEACHING MINISTRY THAT FOCUSES
  • 00:00:04.290 --> 00:00:06.220
  • ON GOD'S UNCONDITIONAL
  • 00:00:06.220 --> 00:00:08.060
  • > GOD LOVES YOU.
  • 00:00:10.110 --> 00:00:11.260
  • GOD WANTS TO BLESS YOU
  • 00:00:11.260 --> 00:00:13.140
  • AND PROSPER YOU,
  • 00:00:13.140 --> 00:00:14.170
  • BUT YOU HAVE TO RESPOND
  • 00:00:14.170 --> 00:00:16.280
  • - I WAS ABLE TO TAKE THAT,
  • 00:00:18.020 --> 00:00:20.120
  • BELIEVING IT,
  • 00:00:20.120 --> 00:00:21.230
  • AND MOVE AHEAD AND OPERATE
  • 00:00:21.230 --> 00:00:23.120
  • IN GIVING,
  • 00:00:23.120 --> 00:00:24.180
  • BELIEVING FOR A HARVEST
  • 00:00:24.180 --> 00:00:25.230
  • AND GETTING A HARVEST
  • 00:00:25.230 --> 00:00:26.190
  • EVERY TIME.
  • 00:00:26.190 --> 00:00:27.220
  • ONCE I DID THAT,
  • 00:00:27.220 --> 00:00:28.110
  • WELCOME TO OUR TUESDAY'S
  • 00:00:32.240 --> 00:00:33.230
  • BROADCAST OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH.
  • 00:00:33.230 --> 00:00:36.050
  • TODAY I'M CONTINUING TO TEACH
  • 00:00:36.050 --> 00:00:37.280
  • ON FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP,
  • 00:00:37.280 --> 00:00:40.160
  • AND I TELL YOU,
  • 00:00:40.160 --> 00:00:41.010
  • THIS IS SOME POWERFUL STUFF.
  • 00:00:41.010 --> 00:00:43.090
  • LAST WEEK, I WAS ESTABLISHING
  • 00:00:43.090 --> 00:00:45.020
  • THAT WE NEED TO GET
  • 00:00:45.020 --> 00:00:45.250
  • THE MINDSET OF STEWARDS,
  • 00:00:45.250 --> 00:00:48.020
  • NOT OWNERS OF MONEY.
  • 00:00:48.020 --> 00:00:50.010
  • I TELL YOU, THAT IS REALLY
  • 00:00:50.010 --> 00:00:51.160
  • IMPORTANT,
  • 00:00:51.160 --> 00:00:52.200
  • AND THEN THIS WEEK,
  • 00:00:52.200 --> 00:00:53.130
  • WHAT I'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:00:53.130 --> 00:00:55.090
  • IS IN LUKE, CHAPTER 16,
  • 00:00:55.090 --> 00:00:57.080
  • WHERE JESUS SAID THAT IF YOU
  • 00:00:57.080 --> 00:00:58.200
  • AREN'T FAITHFUL
  • 00:00:58.200 --> 00:00:59.120
  • IN THAT WHICH IS LEAST,
  • 00:00:59.120 --> 00:01:01.070
  • YOU WON'T BE FAITHFUL
  • 00:01:01.070 --> 00:01:02.060
  • IN THAT WHICH IS MUCH,
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:03.100
  • AND IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN FAITHFUL
  • 00:01:03.100 --> 00:01:04.150
  • OVER LEAST,
  • 00:01:04.150 --> 00:01:05.020
  • NOBODY'S GOING TO GIVE YOU MORE
  • 00:01:05.020 --> 00:01:06.250
  • TO BE FAITHFUL OVER
  • 00:01:06.250 --> 00:01:07.290
  • IF YOU AREN'T FAITHFUL
  • 00:01:07.290 --> 00:01:08.240
  • WITH WHAT YOU HAVE.
  • 00:01:08.240 --> 00:01:10.020
  • THIS IS OUT OF LUKE, CHAPTER 16,
  • 00:01:10.020 --> 00:01:11.220
  • VERSES 10 AND 11,
  • 00:01:11.220 --> 00:01:14.020
  • ACTUALLY DOWN THROUGH VERSE 13,
  • 00:01:14.020 --> 00:01:16.170
  • AND FROM THAT,
  • 00:01:16.170 --> 00:01:17.130
  • WHAT WE'RE SAYING IS,
  • 00:01:17.130 --> 00:01:18.120
  • THAT JESUS WAS SAYING
  • 00:01:18.120 --> 00:01:19.250
  • THAT MONEY,
  • 00:01:19.250 --> 00:01:21.020
  • STEWARDING MONEY,
  • 00:01:21.020 --> 00:01:22.240
  • IS THE LEAST USE OF YOUR FAITH,
  • 00:01:22.240 --> 00:01:25.110
  • AND THERE ARE PEOPLE
  • 00:01:25.110 --> 00:01:26.030
  • THAT HAVE BYPASSED THIS.
  • 00:01:26.030 --> 00:01:27.200
  • THEY ARE NOT TRUSTING GOD,
  • 00:01:27.200 --> 00:01:29.020
  • THEY AREN'T GIVING,
  • 00:01:29.020 --> 00:01:30.280
  • THEY AREN'T CONSISTENT GIVERS,
  • 00:01:30.280 --> 00:01:33.040
  • THEY'RE JUST SPORADIC.
  • 00:01:33.040 --> 00:01:34.180
  • THEY'RE...THEY GIVE EMOTIONALLY
  • 00:01:34.180 --> 00:01:35.280
  • WHEN THEY GET TOUCHED
  • 00:01:35.280 --> 00:01:37.060
  • OR WHEN SOMEBODY HAS A NEED
  • 00:01:37.060 --> 00:01:39.060
  • OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT,
  • 00:01:39.060 --> 00:01:40.030
  • BUT THEY AREN'T DELIBERATE,
  • 00:01:40.030 --> 00:01:41.230
  • ON PURPOSE GIVERS,
  • 00:01:41.230 --> 00:01:44.050
  • SYSTEMATIC GIVERS.
  • 00:01:44.050 --> 00:01:46.080
  • YOU KNOW, PAUL SAID
  • 00:01:46.080 --> 00:01:46.270
  • OVER IN 1 CORINTHIANS,
  • 00:01:46.270 --> 00:01:47.250
  • CHAPTER 16,
  • 00:01:47.250 --> 00:01:48.270
  • HE TOLD THE BELIEVERS
  • 00:01:48.270 --> 00:01:49.280
  • TO LAY BY IN STORE EVERY...
  • 00:01:49.280 --> 00:01:52.160
  • ON THE FIRST DAY OF EVERY WEEK,
  • 00:01:52.160 --> 00:01:55.150
  • SO THAT WHEN HE CAME,
  • 00:01:55.150 --> 00:01:57.020
  • HE WOULDN'T HAVE TO JUST
  • 00:01:57.020 --> 00:01:57.290
  • RECEIVE ONE OFFERING THEN,
  • 00:01:57.290 --> 00:01:59.120
  • BUT WE'RE SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:01:59.120 --> 00:02:00.070
  • SET ASIDE THINGS
  • 00:02:00.070 --> 00:02:01.120
  • ON A REGULAR BASIS.
  • 00:02:01.120 --> 00:02:03.010
  • WHENEVER YOU GET A PAYCHECK,
  • 00:02:03.010 --> 00:02:04.100
  • YOU OUGHT TO SET ASIDE
  • 00:02:04.100 --> 00:02:06.040
  • YOUR GIVING
  • 00:02:06.040 --> 00:02:06.220
  • AND YOU NEED TO GIVE
  • 00:02:06.220 --> 00:02:07.160
  • TO GOD FIRST.
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:09.280
  • THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:02:09.280 --> 00:02:12.280
  • GIVING GOD THE FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:02:12.280 --> 00:02:15.100
  • NOT THE LEFT-OVER FRUITS,
  • 00:02:15.100 --> 00:02:17.020
  • NOT THE WHAT I CAN SPARE FRUITS,
  • 00:02:17.090 --> 00:02:20.090
  • AND YET, THIS IS WHAT
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:21.000
  • MOST PEOPLE DO.
  • 00:02:21.000 --> 00:02:23.190
  • MOST PEOPLE, IF THEY MAKE OUT
  • 00:02:23.190 --> 00:02:24.270
  • A BUDGET,
  • 00:02:24.270 --> 00:02:25.270
  • THEY WILL PUT DOWN
  • 00:02:25.270 --> 00:02:26.150
  • LIKE A HOUSE PAYMENT,
  • 00:02:26.150 --> 00:02:27.140
  • A CAR PAYMENT, INSURANCE,
  • 00:02:27.140 --> 00:02:30.120
  • YOU KNOW, ON AND ON YOU COULD GO
  • 00:02:30.120 --> 00:02:31.240
  • WITH HEALTH FOOD,
  • 00:02:31.240 --> 00:02:33.270
  • JUST ALL KINDS OF THINGS,
  • 00:02:33.270 --> 00:02:35.190
  • AND MOST PEOPLE DON'T
  • 00:02:35.190 --> 00:02:36.160
  • EVEN PUT GIVING IN THEIR BUDGET,
  • 00:02:36.160 --> 00:02:38.290
  • BUT IF THEY DO, IT'S LIKE,
  • 00:02:38.290 --> 00:02:40.180
  • WHAT DO I HAVE LEFT OVER?
  • 00:02:40.180 --> 00:02:43.020
  • BUT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS
  • 00:02:43.020 --> 00:02:43.280
  • IT'S SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:02:43.280 --> 00:02:44.140
  • BE A FIRST FRUITS OFFERING.
  • 00:02:44.140 --> 00:02:46.290
  • WE SHOULD BE GIVING OFF THE TOP.
  • 00:02:46.290 --> 00:02:48.200
  • THE VERY FIRST THING
  • 00:02:48.200 --> 00:02:49.230
  • YOU OUGHT TO DO IS TO SAY,
  • 00:02:49.230 --> 00:02:51.070
  • IF I MAKE THIS MUCH MONEY,
  • 00:02:51.070 --> 00:02:53.080
  • HERE IS HOW MUCH
  • 00:02:53.080 --> 00:02:54.100
  • I'M GOING TO GIVE,
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:02:55.090
  • AND IT OUGHT TO
  • 00:02:55.090 --> 00:02:55.260
  • BE THE VERY FIRST THING
  • 00:02:55.260 --> 00:02:57.030
  • THAT YOU DO.
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:02:58.180
  • YOU KNOW, MY WIFE...
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:02:59.090
  • AND I'M ONLY SAYING THIS
  • 00:02:59.090 --> 00:03:00.100
  • FOR PURPOSE OF ILLUSTRATION.
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:01.210
  • I'M NOT TRYING TO SAY
  • 00:03:01.210 --> 00:03:03.020
  • WE DO EVERYTHING RIGHT
  • 00:03:03.020 --> 00:03:04.030
  • OR ANYTHING,
  • 00:03:04.030 --> 00:03:04.190
  • BUT WE HAVE A GIVE ACCOUNT
  • 00:03:04.190 --> 00:03:07.080
  • THAT IS SEPARATE
  • 00:03:07.080 --> 00:03:07.290
  • FROM OUR MAIN ACCOUNT
  • 00:03:07.290 --> 00:03:09.180
  • AND WE PUT 25%...I...IT COULD
  • 00:03:09.260 --> 00:03:12.260
  • BE 30% NOW.
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:13.260
  • WE'VE BEEN INCHING UP,
  • 00:03:13.260 --> 00:03:15.130
  • BUT WE PUT SOMEWHERE
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:16.050
  • AROUND 25% OF EVERYTHING
  • 00:03:16.050 --> 00:03:18.050
  • WE GET IN THIS GIVE ACCOUNT
  • 00:03:18.050 --> 00:03:19.180
  • AND THAT'S ALL ITS FOR
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:20.230
  • IS FOR GIVING.
  • 00:03:20.230 --> 00:03:22.000
  • NOW THAT'S NOT ALL THAT WE GIVE.
  • 00:03:22.000 --> 00:03:24.080
  • THERE'S BEEN YEARS
  • 00:03:24.080 --> 00:03:25.010
  • THAT WE'VE GOT INHERITANCES
  • 00:03:25.010 --> 00:03:26.240
  • FROM PEOPLE
  • 00:03:26.240 --> 00:03:27.160
  • AND WE HAVE GIVEN
  • 00:03:27.160 --> 00:03:28.150
  • ALL OF THAT AWAY.
  • 00:03:28.150 --> 00:03:29.110
  • WE...WE HAVE GIVEN, SOMETIMES,
  • 00:03:29.110 --> 00:03:31.040
  • AS MUCH AS 90%
  • 00:03:31.040 --> 00:03:33.060
  • OF OUR YEARLY INCOME AWAY,
  • 00:03:33.060 --> 00:03:34.190
  • BUT I'M SAYING WE HAVE 25%
  • 00:03:34.190 --> 00:03:37.000
  • THAT WE JUST GIVE OFF OF THE TOP
  • 00:03:37.000 --> 00:03:38.290
  • AND ITS SET ASIDE FOR THAT.
  • 00:03:38.290 --> 00:03:40.220
  • I'M NOT SAYING YOU HAVE TO DO IT
  • 00:03:40.220 --> 00:03:41.250
  • THAT WAY,
  • 00:03:41.250 --> 00:03:42.070
  • BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:03:42.070 --> 00:03:42.230
  • THAT MINDSET.
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:44.050
  • IT NEEDS TO BE THE FIRST THING
  • 00:03:44.050 --> 00:03:45.290
  • THAT YOU DO,
  • 00:03:45.290 --> 00:03:48.140
  • AND I'M SPEAKING TO MILLIONS
  • 00:03:48.140 --> 00:03:50.110
  • OF PEOPLE RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:03:50.110 --> 00:03:51.120
  • AND I CAN GUARANTEE YOU,
  • 00:03:51.120 --> 00:03:53.110
  • OUT OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:03:53.110 --> 00:03:55.150
  • THAT ARE WATCHING THIS PROGRAM
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:56.150
  • ALL AROUND THE WORLD,
  • 00:03:56.150 --> 00:03:58.080
  • THERE ARE VERY FEW PEOPLE
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:04:01.100
  • THAT PUT GIVING AS A PRIORITY.
  • 00:04:01.220 --> 00:04:04.220
  • WITH MOST PEOPLE,
  • 00:04:04.220 --> 00:04:05.250
  • THEY WOULD BE GLAD TO GIVE
  • 00:04:05.250 --> 00:04:07.040
  • IF THEY HAD SOMETHING LEFT OVER.
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:09.020
  • AFTER YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
  • 00:04:09.020 --> 00:04:11.130
  • AND ALL OF YOUR NEEDS,
  • 00:04:11.130 --> 00:04:12.220
  • THEN IF YOU HAD EXTRA,
  • 00:04:12.220 --> 00:04:14.030
  • YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO GIVE.
  • 00:04:14.030 --> 00:04:15.230
  • I COULDN'T TELL YOU
  • 00:04:15.230 --> 00:04:16.110
  • HOW MANY TIMES I'VE HAD PEOPLE
  • 00:04:16.110 --> 00:04:17.130
  • COME UP TO ME AND SAY,
  • 00:04:17.130 --> 00:04:18.140
  • WELL, I WOULD GIVE IF I HAD
  • 00:04:18.140 --> 00:04:20.030
  • ANY MONEY.
  • 00:04:20.030 --> 00:04:21.080
  • THE TRUTH IS EVERYBODY
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:22.080
  • HAS MONEY.
  • 00:04:22.080 --> 00:04:23.210
  • EVERY...YOU CAN'T LIVE
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:24.250
  • WITHOUT MONEY.
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:25.170
  • YOU HAVE SOME INCOME.
  • 00:04:25.170 --> 00:04:27.000
  • IT MAY NOT BE ENOUGH,
  • 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:28.220
  • BUT YOU HAVE INCOME
  • 00:04:28.220 --> 00:04:30.180
  • AND YOU COULD TAKE
  • 00:04:30.180 --> 00:04:31.210
  • THE VERY FIRST...UP...THE MOMENT
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:35.040
  • YOU GET THAT MONEY
  • 00:04:35.040 --> 00:04:36.000
  • YOU COULD TAKE
  • 00:04:36.000 --> 00:04:36.180
  • AND MAKE THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:04:36.180 --> 00:04:38.030
  • YOUR GIVING.
  • 00:04:38.030 --> 00:04:38.260
  • YOU CAN DO IT,
  • 00:04:38.260 --> 00:04:40.080
  • AND SOMEBODY, BUT I DON'T
  • 00:04:40.080 --> 00:04:41.010
  • HAVE ENOUGH NOW.
  • 00:04:41.010 --> 00:04:41.270
  • I'M IN DEBT UP TO MY EYEBALLS,
  • 00:04:41.270 --> 00:04:43.150
  • WHAT DO I DO?
  • 00:04:43.150 --> 00:04:44.060
  • IF YOU START GIVING,
  • 00:04:44.060 --> 00:04:45.260
  • YOU CAN GET OUT OF THAT DEBT,
  • 00:04:45.260 --> 00:04:48.020
  • AND AGAIN, THIS DOESN'T COMPUTE
  • 00:04:48.020 --> 00:04:49.200
  • TO THE NATURAL MIND,
  • 00:04:49.200 --> 00:04:50.260
  • BUT THIS IS THE WAY
  • 00:04:50.260 --> 00:04:52.140
  • THAT IT WORKS,
  • 00:04:52.140 --> 00:04:53.090
  • AND THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN
  • 00:04:53.090 --> 00:04:54.170
  • TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:04:54.170 --> 00:04:55.100
  • I WAS USING THIS EXAMPLE
  • 00:04:55.100 --> 00:04:57.080
  • IN MARK, CHAPTER 10,
  • 00:04:57.080 --> 00:04:58.130
  • ABOUT THE RICH YOUNG RULER
  • 00:04:58.130 --> 00:04:59.220
  • WHO CAME TO JESUS,
  • 00:04:59.220 --> 00:05:00.250
  • AND OUTWARDLY,
  • 00:05:00.250 --> 00:05:01.160
  • LOOKED VERY GOOD,
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:02.170
  • HE LOOKED LIKE HE WAS WILLING
  • 00:05:02.170 --> 00:05:03.190
  • TO FALL AT JESUS' FEET,
  • 00:05:03.190 --> 00:05:05.080
  • GOOD MASTER, WHAT MUST I DO
  • 00:05:05.080 --> 00:05:07.160
  • TO INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE?
  • 00:05:07.160 --> 00:05:09.080
  • BUT JESUS KNEW THAT HIS HEART
  • 00:05:09.080 --> 00:05:10.210
  • WASN'T RIGHT WITH HIM,
  • 00:05:10.210 --> 00:05:11.260
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT HE USED
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:13.010
  • TO REVEAL THAT THIS MAN'S HEART
  • 00:05:13.010 --> 00:05:15.140
  • WASN'T RIGHT,
  • 00:05:15.140 --> 00:05:16.020
  • THAT HE WASN'T TRULY COMMITTED
  • 00:05:16.020 --> 00:05:17.150
  • TO GOD?
  • 00:05:17.150 --> 00:05:18.150
  • HE USED HIS ATTITUDE
  • 00:05:18.150 --> 00:05:20.000
  • TOWARDS MONEY.
  • 00:05:20.000 --> 00:05:21.080
  • HE TOLD HIM TO SELL EVERYTHING
  • 00:05:21.080 --> 00:05:22.240
  • HE HAD
  • 00:05:22.240 --> 00:05:23.270
  • AND GIVE IT TO THE POOR.
  • 00:05:23.270 --> 00:05:24.260
  • NOW JESUS DIDN'T
  • 00:05:24.260 --> 00:05:25.140
  • TELL OTHER PEOPLE THIS.
  • 00:05:25.140 --> 00:05:27.110
  • I USED AS AN EXAMPLE
  • 00:05:27.110 --> 00:05:28.170
  • ON YESTERDAY'S PROGRAM,
  • 00:05:28.170 --> 00:05:29.200
  • ZACCHAEUS.
  • 00:05:29.200 --> 00:05:30.160
  • ZACCHAEUS WAS A VERY RICH MAN
  • 00:05:30.160 --> 00:05:32.110
  • AND GOD DIDN'T TELL HIM
  • 00:05:32.110 --> 00:05:33.140
  • TO SELL EVERYTHING,
  • 00:05:33.140 --> 00:05:34.180
  • BECAUSE HE HAD ALREADY GOTTEN
  • 00:05:34.180 --> 00:05:35.290
  • HIS HEART RIGHT,
  • 00:05:35.290 --> 00:05:37.130
  • BUT YOU CAN USE MONEY TO EXPOSE
  • 00:05:38.150 --> 00:05:41.150
  • WHERE YOUR HEART IS.
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:43.050
  • YOU KNOW, FOR INSTANCE,
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:43.260
  • YOU COULD LOOK AT JUDAS.
  • 00:05:43.260 --> 00:05:45.230
  • WHEN JUDAS SAW THIS WOMAN
  • 00:05:45.230 --> 00:05:47.040
  • COME WITH THE ALABASTER BOX
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:48.210
  • OF OINTMENT
  • 00:05:48.210 --> 00:05:49.250
  • AND SHE BROKE THE BOX
  • 00:05:49.250 --> 00:05:51.030
  • AND POURED IT ON JESUS' FEET
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:53.030
  • AND IT WAS ABOUT
  • 00:05:53.030 --> 00:05:53.260
  • A YEAR'S SALARY,
  • 00:05:53.260 --> 00:05:55.140
  • JUDAS IMMEDIATELY,
  • 00:05:55.140 --> 00:05:56.150
  • WHY WAS THIS WASTE MADE,
  • 00:05:56.150 --> 00:05:58.110
  • IT COULD HAVE BEEN SOLD
  • 00:05:58.110 --> 00:05:59.170
  • AND THE MONEY GIVEN TO THE POOR,
  • 00:05:59.170 --> 00:06:01.200
  • AND IT SAYS, HE SAID THAT,
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:02.290
  • NOT BECAUSE HE CARED
  • 00:06:02.290 --> 00:06:04.270
  • ABOUT THE POOR,
  • 00:06:04.270 --> 00:06:05.200
  • BUT BECAUSE HE WAS A THIEF,
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:07.140
  • AND HE WANTED
  • 00:06:07.140 --> 00:06:08.010
  • WHAT WAS IN THE BAG.
  • 00:06:08.010 --> 00:06:09.020
  • IT WAS OUT OF COVETOUSNESS,
  • 00:06:09.020 --> 00:06:10.280
  • AND DID YOU KNOW, JUDAS,
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:12.060
  • THE MAN WHO WOUND UP
  • 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:13.130
  • BETRAYING JESUS,
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:15.080
  • HE HAD A PROBLEM WITH FINANCES.
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:17.150
  • HE WAS A THIEF.
  • 00:06:17.150 --> 00:06:18.110
  • HE WAS STEALING MONEY
  • 00:06:18.110 --> 00:06:19.220
  • FROM THE DISCIPLES' TREASURY,
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:22.290
  • AND I GUARANTEE YOU,
  • 00:06:22.290 --> 00:06:23.220
  • PEOPLE WHO HAVE THIS ATTITUDE
  • 00:06:23.220 --> 00:06:25.130
  • AND GET UPSET WHEN YOU GO
  • 00:06:25.130 --> 00:06:26.180
  • TO TALKING ABOUT MONEY
  • 00:06:26.180 --> 00:06:27.250
  • AND THEY HAVE THIS
  • 00:06:27.250 --> 00:06:28.190
  • JUDAS ATTITUDE,
  • 00:06:28.190 --> 00:06:30.270
  • IT REVEALS A LOT ABOUT
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:31.270
  • WHAT'S IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:06:31.270 --> 00:06:34.130
  • PEOPLE CAN SAY, OH, I LOVE GOD,
  • 00:06:34.130 --> 00:06:36.150
  • I...I LOVE GOD WITH ALL OF
  • 00:06:36.150 --> 00:06:38.020
  • MY HEART,
  • 00:06:38.020 --> 00:06:38.210
  • I'M...I'VE GIVEN MY WHOLE LIFE
  • 00:06:38.210 --> 00:06:40.110
  • TO THE LORD,
  • 00:06:40.110 --> 00:06:41.090
  • YOU CAN GO LOOK AT THEIR GIVING
  • 00:06:41.090 --> 00:06:43.110
  • AND FIND OUT
  • 00:06:43.110 --> 00:06:43.280
  • WHETHER THEY TRULY LOVE GOD
  • 00:06:43.280 --> 00:06:46.160
  • WITH ALL OF THEIR HEART,
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:48.120
  • AND I KNOW THAT THERE'S SOME
  • 00:06:48.120 --> 00:06:49.120
  • OF YOU THAT TAKE OFFENSE AT THAT
  • 00:06:49.120 --> 00:06:50.250
  • AND SAY, MAN, YOU ARE MAKING
  • 00:06:50.250 --> 00:06:51.240
  • A BIGGER DEAL OUT OF THIS.
  • 00:06:51.240 --> 00:06:52.260
  • I'M NOT DOING ANYTHING
  • 00:06:52.260 --> 00:06:54.240
  • THAT JESUS DIDN'T DO RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:56.210
  • THIS MAN'S HEART WASN'T RIGHT,
  • 00:06:56.210 --> 00:06:58.190
  • JESUS KNEW IT,
  • 00:06:58.190 --> 00:06:59.170
  • AND IT SAYS, BEHOLDING HIM
  • 00:06:59.170 --> 00:07:01.060
  • HE LOVED HIM,...
  • 00:07:01.060 --> 00:07:02.070
  • HE DIDN'T SAY THIS OUT OF ANGER.
  • 00:07:02.070 --> 00:07:04.080
  • HE SAID IT BECAUSE HE LOVED
  • 00:07:04.080 --> 00:07:05.280
  • THIS MAN
  • 00:07:05.280 --> 00:07:06.120
  • AND HE WANTED TO SEE
  • 00:07:06.120 --> 00:07:07.100
  • THIS MAN SET FREE
  • 00:07:07.100 --> 00:07:10.010
  • FROM THE SPIRIT OF MAMMON.
  • 00:07:10.010 --> 00:07:12.270
  • YOU KNOW, I'M GOING TO
  • 00:07:12.270 --> 00:07:13.110
  • TALK ABOUT THIS MORE,
  • 00:07:13.110 --> 00:07:14.140
  • BUT OVER IN LUKE, CHAPTER 16,
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:16.110
  • VERSE 13,
  • 00:07:16.110 --> 00:07:17.240
  • I READ THOSE VERSES,
  • 00:07:17.240 --> 00:07:18.280
  • BUT I HAVEN'T REALLY
  • 00:07:18.280 --> 00:07:19.180
  • COMMENTED ON IT.
  • 00:07:19.180 --> 00:07:20.150
  • IT SAYS, YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD
  • 00:07:20.150 --> 00:07:22.030
  • AND MAMMON,
  • 00:07:22.030 --> 00:07:23.140
  • AND YOU KNOW, THE WORD,
  • 00:07:23.140 --> 00:07:24.050
  • MAMMON, HERE,
  • 00:07:24.050 --> 00:07:24.240
  • IT LITERALLY MEANS, MONEY.
  • 00:07:24.240 --> 00:07:26.130
  • IT'S TRANSLATED THAT
  • 00:07:26.130 --> 00:07:28.000
  • IN MOST OF THE MODERN
  • 00:07:28.000 --> 00:07:29.050
  • TRANSLATIONS,
  • 00:07:29.050 --> 00:07:30.040
  • BUT YOU KNOW,
  • 00:07:30.040 --> 00:07:30.290
  • A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE,
  • 00:07:30.290 --> 00:07:31.200
  • CREFLO DOLLAR,
  • 00:07:31.200 --> 00:07:32.170
  • HE'S...HE'S TAUGHT ON THIS
  • 00:07:32.170 --> 00:07:34.000
  • AND I'VE REALLY GOTTEN A LOT
  • 00:07:34.000 --> 00:07:35.210
  • OUT OF WHAT HE SAYS,
  • 00:07:35.210 --> 00:07:36.240
  • THAT THAT MAMMON IS MORE THAN
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:38.110
  • JUST MONEY.
  • 00:07:38.110 --> 00:07:39.010
  • IT'S TALKING ABOUT THE SPIRIT
  • 00:07:39.010 --> 00:07:41.120
  • THAT IS BEHIND MONEY,
  • 00:07:41.120 --> 00:07:42.220
  • THIS COVETOUS SPIRIT
  • 00:07:43.030 --> 00:07:46.030
  • THAT IS BEHIND MONEY.
  • 00:07:46.030 --> 00:07:47.010
  • YOU CANNOT SERVE...YOU CANNOT
  • 00:07:47.010 --> 00:07:49.250
  • BE SLAVE TO COVETOUSNESS
  • 00:07:49.250 --> 00:07:52.200
  • AND SLAVE TO GOD
  • 00:07:52.200 --> 00:07:53.280
  • AT THE SAME TIME,
  • 00:07:53.280 --> 00:07:55.090
  • AND I GUARANTEE YOU, YOUR MONEY,
  • 00:07:55.090 --> 00:07:56.230
  • YOUR USE OF MONEY,
  • 00:07:56.230 --> 00:07:57.270
  • SAYS MORE ABOUT YOU
  • 00:07:57.270 --> 00:07:59.100
  • THAN ALL OF YOUR WORDS
  • 00:07:59.100 --> 00:08:00.210
  • PUT TOGETHER,
  • 00:08:00.210 --> 00:08:02.250
  • AND I CAN HEAR TELEVISION SETS
  • 00:08:02.250 --> 00:08:04.030
  • ALL OVER THE WORLD
  • 00:08:04.030 --> 00:08:05.030
  • TURNING OFF RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:08:05.030 --> 00:08:06.050
  • BECAUSE, MAN, THEY DON'T WANT
  • 00:08:06.050 --> 00:08:07.080
  • TO HEAR THIS,
  • 00:08:07.080 --> 00:08:07.240
  • BUT IT'S THE TRUTH,
  • 00:08:07.240 --> 00:08:08.200
  • AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE,
  • 00:08:08.200 --> 00:08:10.150
  • AND I'M NOT SAYING THESE THINGS,
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:11.160
  • BECAUSE I'M MAD AT YOU,
  • 00:08:11.160 --> 00:08:12.170
  • I'M TRY...I LOVE YOU.
  • 00:08:12.170 --> 00:08:13.170
  • JUST LIKE JESUS RIGHT HERE,
  • 00:08:13.170 --> 00:08:14.240
  • HE TOLD THIS MAN
  • 00:08:14.240 --> 00:08:16.140
  • BECAUSE HE LOVED HIM,
  • 00:08:16.140 --> 00:08:17.280
  • GO SELL EVERYTHING
  • 00:08:17.280 --> 00:08:19.000
  • THAT YOU HAVE.
  • 00:08:19.000 --> 00:08:21.040
  • YOU NEED TO GET FREE
  • 00:08:21.040 --> 00:08:23.130
  • FROM THE CONTROL
  • 00:08:23.130 --> 00:08:24.180
  • AND THE DOMINANCE OF MONEY.
  • 00:08:24.210 --> 00:08:27.210
  • YOU KNOW, IT WAS A BREAKTHROUGH
  • 00:08:27.210 --> 00:08:29.210
  • IN MY LIFE WHEN I HAD A MAN
  • 00:08:29.210 --> 00:08:31.060
  • PROPHESY TO ME
  • 00:08:31.060 --> 00:08:32.050
  • AND HE SAYS, YOU ARE GOING TO
  • 00:08:32.050 --> 00:08:33.280
  • BE IN A PLACE WHERE YOU WILL
  • 00:08:33.280 --> 00:08:35.270
  • NEVER HAVE TO SAY,
  • 00:08:35.270 --> 00:08:37.050
  • GOD, WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO
  • 00:08:37.050 --> 00:08:40.020
  • BASED ON HOW MUCH MONEY I HAVE
  • 00:08:40.020 --> 00:08:42.040
  • IN MY POCKET.
  • 00:08:42.040 --> 00:08:43.230
  • THIS PROPHECY SAID,
  • 00:08:43.230 --> 00:08:44.180
  • YOU'RE GOING TO GET
  • 00:08:44.180 --> 00:08:45.050
  • TO WHERE YOU ARE GOING TO
  • 00:08:45.050 --> 00:08:45.290
  • DIS...DISCONNECT
  • 00:08:45.290 --> 00:08:48.260
  • FROM LIMITING GOD BY MONEY
  • 00:08:48.260 --> 00:08:50.210
  • AND JUST SAY, GOD, WHAT DO YOU
  • 00:08:50.210 --> 00:08:52.010
  • WANT ME TO DO?
  • 00:08:52.010 --> 00:08:53.120
  • AND YOU KNOW, I CAN
  • 00:08:53.120 --> 00:08:53.280
  • TRUTHFULLY SAY THAT WE'VE BUILT
  • 00:08:53.280 --> 00:08:55.250
  • $80 MILLION...$75 TO $80 MILLION
  • 00:08:55.250 --> 00:08:57.290
  • DOLLARS' WORTH OF BUILDINGS
  • 00:08:57.290 --> 00:08:59.180
  • DEBT FREE.
  • 00:08:59.180 --> 00:09:01.020
  • WE'VE GOT A PARKING GARAGE
  • 00:09:01.020 --> 00:09:02.110
  • THAT WE DID PAY FOR,
  • 00:09:02.110 --> 00:09:03.170
  • BUT I'M GETTING OUT OF DEBT
  • 00:09:03.170 --> 00:09:04.210
  • ON THAT QUICKLY,
  • 00:09:04.210 --> 00:09:06.210
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS,
  • 00:09:06.210 --> 00:09:07.240
  • BUT WE'VE GOT $75 MILLION
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:09.180
  • DOLLARS' WORTH
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:10.090
  • OF VERY NICE BUILDINGS
  • 00:09:10.090 --> 00:09:12.270
  • THAT I BUILT DEBT FREE
  • 00:09:12.270 --> 00:09:15.070
  • AND I DIDN'T DO IT BASED ON
  • 00:09:15.070 --> 00:09:17.100
  • WHAT IS IT GOING TO COST ME
  • 00:09:17.100 --> 00:09:18.180
  • AND SEE WHAT I COULD AFFORD.
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:20.050
  • I DID WHAT I FELT GOD
  • 00:09:20.050 --> 00:09:21.200
  • PUT IN MY HEART.
  • 00:09:21.200 --> 00:09:23.080
  • YOU CAN GET FREE
  • 00:09:23.080 --> 00:09:24.110
  • FROM THIS SPIRIT
  • 00:09:24.110 --> 00:09:26.050
  • THAT CONTROLS YOU
  • 00:09:26.050 --> 00:09:27.060
  • AND DOMINATES YOU
  • 00:09:27.060 --> 00:09:28.130
  • AND MAKES YOU THINK
  • 00:09:28.130 --> 00:09:29.110
  • A CERTAIN WAY,
  • 00:09:29.110 --> 00:09:30.010
  • TO WHERE YOU JUST START THINKING
  • 00:09:30.010 --> 00:09:31.180
  • ABOUT, GOD, WHAT IS YOUR WILL?
  • 00:09:31.180 --> 00:09:32.270
  • NOT BY WHAT CAN I AFFORD.
  • 00:09:33.140 --> 00:09:36.140
  • I TELL YOU,
  • 00:09:36.140 --> 00:09:36.230
  • THIS IS IMPORTANT THINGS.
  • 00:09:36.230 --> 00:09:38.100
  • AND SO, AFTER JESUS
  • 00:09:38.100 --> 00:09:39.050
  • HAD SAID THIS
  • 00:09:39.050 --> 00:09:40.030
  • TO THIS RICH YOUNG RULER,
  • 00:09:40.030 --> 00:09:41.240
  • HE LEFT,
  • 00:09:41.240 --> 00:09:42.110
  • AND HE WAS SAD
  • 00:09:42.110 --> 00:09:43.040
  • BECAUSE HE HAD GREAT
  • 00:09:43.040 --> 00:09:44.000
  • POSITIONS...POSSESSIONS;
  • 00:09:44.080 --> 00:09:47.080
  • AND LISTEN TO WHAT JESUS SAID
  • 00:09:47.080 --> 00:09:48.200
  • TO HIS DISCIPLES RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:09:48.200 --> 00:09:50.000
  • IN VERSE 23, MARK, CHAPTER 10,
  • 00:09:50.120 --> 00:09:53.120
  • VERSE 23,
  • 00:09:53.120 --> 00:09:54.020
  • JESUS LOOKED ROUND ABOUT,
  • 00:09:54.020 --> 00:09:55.260
  • AND SAITH UNTO HIS DISCIPLES,
  • 00:09:55.260 --> 00:09:57.110
  • HOW HARDLY SHALL THEY
  • 00:09:57.110 --> 00:09:59.170
  • THAT HAVE RICHES
  • 00:09:59.170 --> 00:10:01.090
  • WHAT A STATEMENT.
  • 00:10:04.120 --> 00:10:06.190
  • AGAIN, IF I WASN'T READING THIS
  • 00:10:06.190 --> 00:10:08.190
  • FROM SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:10:08.190 --> 00:10:09.140
  • IF JESUS WASN'T THE ONE
  • 00:10:09.140 --> 00:10:10.250
  • THAT SAID IT,
  • 00:10:10.250 --> 00:10:11.130
  • IF I JUST CAME OUT AND SAID,
  • 00:10:11.130 --> 00:10:12.240
  • IF YOU'VE GOT MONEY,
  • 00:10:12.240 --> 00:10:14.020
  • YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:10:14.020 --> 00:10:14.200
  • A VERY HARD TIME
  • 00:10:14.200 --> 00:10:16.150
  • BEING BORN AGAIN
  • 00:10:16.150 --> 00:10:17.200
  • AND FLOWING IN THE KINGDOM
  • 00:10:17.200 --> 00:10:19.000
  • OF GOD;
  • 00:10:19.000 --> 00:10:20.050
  • IF I WAS JUST TO SAY THAT
  • 00:10:20.050 --> 00:10:21.130
  • ON MY OWN
  • 00:10:21.130 --> 00:10:22.080
  • WITHOUT QUOTING JESUS,
  • 00:10:22.080 --> 00:10:23.150
  • I CAN GUARANTEE
  • 00:10:23.150 --> 00:10:24.110
  • THERE'S MANY OF YOU
  • 00:10:24.110 --> 00:10:25.040
  • WATCHING THIS
  • 00:10:25.040 --> 00:10:25.250
  • THAT WOULD BRAND ME
  • 00:10:25.250 --> 00:10:26.220
  • A HERETIC,
  • 00:10:26.220 --> 00:10:27.130
  • YOU WOULD SAY THAT THIS
  • 00:10:27.130 --> 00:10:28.120
  • IS SOME KIND OF A CULT,
  • 00:10:28.120 --> 00:10:30.210
  • AND YET, THIS IS EXACTLY
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:32.040
  • WHAT JESUS SAID,
  • 00:10:32.040 --> 00:10:33.190
  • AND LOOK AT THE RESPONSE
  • 00:10:33.190 --> 00:10:34.180
  • OF HIS DISCIPLES.
  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:35.180
  • IT SAYS, AND THE DISCIPLES
  • 00:10:35.180 --> 00:10:36.270
  • WERE ASTONISHED
  • 00:10:36.270 --> 00:10:38.030
  • AT HIS WORDS...
  • 00:10:38.030 --> 00:10:40.010
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:10:40.010 --> 00:10:40.150
  • THIS WAS A RADICAL STATEMENT
  • 00:10:40.150 --> 00:10:42.000
  • THEN JUST AS IT IS NOW,
  • 00:10:42.000 --> 00:10:43.260
  • AND JESUS WENT ON AND SAY,
  • 00:10:43.260 --> 00:10:45.110
  • HE ANSWERED AGAIN,
  • 00:10:45.110 --> 00:10:46.100
  • AND SAID UNTO THEM, CHILDREN,
  • 00:10:46.100 --> 00:10:47.130
  • HOW HARD IS IT FOR THEM
  • 00:10:47.130 --> 00:10:48.210
  • THAT TRUST IN RICHES TO ENTER
  • 00:10:48.210 --> 00:10:51.150
  • INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD!
  • 00:10:51.150 --> 00:10:53.060
  • SO, BY PUTTING THESE
  • 00:10:53.060 --> 00:10:53.290
  • TWO STATEMENTS TOGETHER,
  • 00:10:53.290 --> 00:10:56.250
  • YOU SEE THAT IT'S NOT
  • 00:10:56.250 --> 00:10:58.030
  • HAVING MONEY THAT'S THE PROBLEM,
  • 00:10:58.030 --> 00:11:00.140
  • IT'S WHERE IS YOUR TRUST?
  • 00:11:00.140 --> 00:11:03.000
  • ARE YOU TRUSTING IN YOUR MONEY
  • 00:11:03.000 --> 00:11:05.070
  • OR ARE YOU TRUSTING IN GOD?
  • 00:11:05.070 --> 00:11:07.230
  • A PERSON WHO SAYS,
  • 00:11:07.230 --> 00:11:08.230
  • OH, I'M TRUSTING IN GOD,
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:10.130
  • BUT THEN GOD SAYS, GIVE,
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:11.280
  • AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU;
  • 00:11:11.280 --> 00:11:13.160
  • GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN,
  • 00:11:13.160 --> 00:11:14.200
  • SHAKEN TOGETHER,
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:15.100
  • AND RUNNING OVER, ET CETERA,
  • 00:11:15.100 --> 00:11:16.230
  • LUKE 6:38,
  • 00:11:16.230 --> 00:11:18.210
  • AND GOD SAYS THAT,
  • 00:11:18.210 --> 00:11:19.280
  • BUT YOU DON'T GIVE
  • 00:11:19.280 --> 00:11:21.200
  • BECAUSE YOU NEED THIS MONEY.
  • 00:11:21.200 --> 00:11:23.170
  • YOU'VE GOT TO PAY YOUR RENT,
  • 00:11:23.170 --> 00:11:24.180
  • YOU'VE GOT TO BUY GAS,
  • 00:11:24.180 --> 00:11:25.190
  • YOU'VE GOT TO BUY GROCERIES.
  • 00:11:25.190 --> 00:11:27.030
  • I NEED...I...I WANT TO GIVE,
  • 00:11:27.030 --> 00:11:29.120
  • BUT I CAN'T GIVE;
  • 00:11:29.120 --> 00:11:31.040
  • YOU CAN SAY WHAT YOU WANT TO,
  • 00:11:31.040 --> 00:11:33.140
  • BUT YOU ARE TRUSTING
  • 00:11:33.140 --> 00:11:35.060
  • IN THOSE RICHES.
  • 00:11:35.060 --> 00:11:36.180
  • IF YOU WERE TRUSTING IN GOD,
  • 00:11:36.180 --> 00:11:39.150
  • THEN YOU WOULD SAY,
  • 00:11:39.150 --> 00:11:40.040
  • GOD, IN THE NATURAL,
  • 00:11:40.040 --> 00:11:41.150
  • IT LOOKS LIKE I WON'T BE ABLE
  • 00:11:41.150 --> 00:11:43.080
  • TO MAKE IT IF I PAY MY TITHES,
  • 00:11:43.080 --> 00:11:45.130
  • IF I GIVE TO THIS CAUSE,
  • 00:11:45.130 --> 00:11:48.130
  • BUT MY TRUST IS IN YOU,
  • 00:11:48.130 --> 00:11:51.110
  • IT'S NOT IN THIS MONEY,
  • 00:11:51.110 --> 00:11:53.270
  • AND SO, I'M GOING TO PROVE IT
  • 00:11:53.270 --> 00:11:55.130
  • BY GIVING THIS
  • 00:11:55.130 --> 00:11:56.130
  • AND I TRUST YOU.
  • 00:11:56.130 --> 00:11:57.290
  • SEE, THAT'S WHAT...THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:11:57.290 --> 00:11:59.060
  • MONEY AND GIVING IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:11:59.060 --> 00:12:01.180
  • IT'S NOT THAT GOD NEEDS
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:03.040
  • YOUR MONEY.
  • 00:12:03.040 --> 00:12:04.140
  • YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:12:04.140 --> 00:12:05.130
  • IN ISAIAH, OR EXCUSE ME,
  • 00:12:05.130 --> 00:12:06.190
  • IT'S PSALMS, CHAPTER 50, OR 51,
  • 00:12:07.100 --> 00:12:10.100
  • IT SAYS THAT JESUS OWNS
  • 00:12:10.100 --> 00:12:12.000
  • ALL OF THE CATTLE
  • 00:12:12.000 --> 00:12:12.290
  • ON A THOUSAND HILLS,
  • 00:12:12.290 --> 00:12:14.180
  • AND TECHNICALLY,
  • 00:12:14.180 --> 00:12:15.100
  • HE OWNS THE HILLS, TOO.
  • 00:12:15.100 --> 00:12:17.030
  • IT SAYS RIGHT THERE
  • 00:12:17.030 --> 00:12:17.270
  • IN THAT CONTEXT,
  • 00:12:17.270 --> 00:12:18.250
  • IT SAYS, IF I WAS HUNGRY,
  • 00:12:18.250 --> 00:12:20.100
  • I WOULDN'T ASK YOU.
  • 00:12:20.100 --> 00:12:23.010
  • IN OTHER WORDS, GOD IS SAYING,
  • 00:12:23.010 --> 00:12:24.040
  • LOOK, I DON'T NEED YOU
  • 00:12:24.040 --> 00:12:26.030
  • TO OFFER A SACRIFICE,
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:27.180
  • BECAUSE OF ME.
  • 00:12:27.180 --> 00:12:28.180
  • IT'S NOT LIKE I'M HUNGRY,
  • 00:12:28.180 --> 00:12:30.000
  • IT'S NOT LIKE I NEED
  • 00:12:30.000 --> 00:12:31.090
  • MORE CATTLE.
  • 00:12:31.090 --> 00:12:32.210
  • GOD DOESN'T NEED...
  • 00:12:32.210 --> 00:12:33.230
  • HE DIDN'T NEED
  • 00:12:33.230 --> 00:12:34.100
  • THE OLD TESTAMENT SACRIFICES
  • 00:12:34.100 --> 00:12:36.020
  • AND GOD DOESN'T NEED YOUR MONEY
  • 00:12:36.020 --> 00:12:38.120
  • IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:12:38.120 --> 00:12:40.050
  • AND I KNOW SOMEBODY'S SAYING,
  • 00:12:40.050 --> 00:12:41.000
  • WELL, YOU PREACHERS SURE DO.
  • 00:12:41.000 --> 00:12:42.240
  • DID YOU KNOW GOD COULD HAVE
  • 00:12:42.240 --> 00:12:43.240
  • SET IT UP DIFFERENTLY?
  • 00:12:43.240 --> 00:12:45.250
  • I...I KNOW OF A MAN,
  • 00:12:45.250 --> 00:12:47.040
  • I'VE NOT PERSONALLY MET HIM,
  • 00:12:47.040 --> 00:12:48.140
  • BUT ONE OF MY STAFF
  • 00:12:48.140 --> 00:12:49.270
  • WENT OVER TO A MAN
  • 00:12:49.270 --> 00:12:51.060
  • WHO WATCHES ME ON TELEVISION
  • 00:12:51.060 --> 00:12:52.250
  • AND HE GAVE ME A BOX
  • 00:12:52.250 --> 00:12:55.010
  • OF VERY EXPENSIVE TEA
  • 00:12:55.010 --> 00:12:57.020
  • AND THINGS LIKE THIS,
  • 00:12:57.020 --> 00:12:58.050
  • AND SO, I HAVE SOME
  • 00:12:58.050 --> 00:12:59.190
  • RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:12:59.190 --> 00:13:00.100
  • BUT I'VE NEVER, PERSONALLY,
  • 00:13:00.100 --> 00:13:01.070
  • MET THIS MAN,
  • 00:13:01.070 --> 00:13:02.190
  • BUT THIS MAN WHO WORKS FOR ME,
  • 00:13:02.190 --> 00:13:05.030
  • HE WENT OVER THERE
  • 00:13:05.030 --> 00:13:06.150
  • AND THE GUY PICKED HIM UP
  • 00:13:06.150 --> 00:13:07.140
  • FROM THE AIRPORT
  • 00:13:07.140 --> 00:13:08.130
  • IN HIS BENTLEY LIMOUSINE
  • 00:13:08.130 --> 00:13:10.270
  • THAT FOLLOWED
  • 00:13:10.270 --> 00:13:11.190
  • HIS OTHER BENTLEY LIMOUSINE.
  • 00:13:11.190 --> 00:13:13.230
  • HE HAD TWO BENTLEY LIMOUSINES.
  • 00:13:13.230 --> 00:13:16.070
  • TOOK HIM TO HIS MANSION
  • 00:13:16.070 --> 00:13:17.190
  • THAT HE LIVED IN.
  • 00:13:17.190 --> 00:13:18.280
  • THE MAN HAD JUST BOUGHT,
  • 00:13:18.280 --> 00:13:20.110
  • I THINK, HIS, UH...
  • 00:13:20.110 --> 00:13:22.060
  • 53RD OR SOMETHING
  • 00:13:22.200 --> 00:13:25.200
  • BOAT, TANKER,
  • 00:13:25.200 --> 00:13:27.090
  • AND THAT BOAT COST
  • 00:13:27.090 --> 00:13:28.150
  • $53 MILLION DOLLARS
  • 00:13:28.150 --> 00:13:30.220
  • AND HE HAD OVER 50 OF THEM
  • 00:13:30.220 --> 00:13:32.160
  • LIKE THAT.
  • 00:13:32.160 --> 00:13:33.170
  • THIS GUY IS FILTHY, STINKING,
  • 00:13:33.170 --> 00:13:35.220
  • DIRTY RICH.
  • 00:13:35.220 --> 00:13:36.210
  • NOW, AGAIN, I'M NOT SAYING
  • 00:13:36.210 --> 00:13:38.090
  • THESE THINGS,
  • 00:13:38.090 --> 00:13:38.250
  • I DON'T COVET THIS MAN'S MONEY,
  • 00:13:38.250 --> 00:13:40.090
  • HE'S FREE TO DO WHATEVER
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:41.080
  • HE WANTS TO DO;
  • 00:13:41.080 --> 00:13:41.280
  • HE GAVE ME A BOX
  • 00:13:41.280 --> 00:13:42.250
  • OF REALLY NICE TEAS,
  • 00:13:42.250 --> 00:13:44.230
  • AND SO, THAT'S FINE,
  • 00:13:44.230 --> 00:13:45.200
  • BUT I'M SAYING,
  • 00:13:45.200 --> 00:13:46.040
  • HE'S NEVER GIVEN ME
  • 00:13:46.040 --> 00:13:47.000
  • ANYTHING BEYOND THAT TEA,
  • 00:13:47.000 --> 00:13:49.040
  • BUT HE COULD.
  • 00:13:49.040 --> 00:13:51.130
  • THIS MAN IS A BILLIONAIRE.
  • 00:13:51.130 --> 00:13:53.270
  • HE COULD HAVE GIVEN ME
  • 00:13:53.270 --> 00:13:54.280
  • ENOUGH MONEY THAT,
  • 00:13:54.280 --> 00:13:56.200
  • GOD, IF HE WANTED TO,
  • 00:13:56.200 --> 00:13:57.240
  • COULD SET IT UP,
  • 00:13:57.240 --> 00:13:58.160
  • SO THAT I WOULD NEVER
  • 00:13:58.160 --> 00:13:59.230
  • HAVE TO RECEIVE AN OFFERING,
  • 00:13:59.230 --> 00:14:01.210
  • SO THAT I WOULD NEVER HAVE
  • 00:14:01.210 --> 00:14:02.140
  • TO MENTION MONEY OR ANYTHING.
  • 00:14:02.140 --> 00:14:04.050
  • GOD IS NOT LIMITED.
  • 00:14:04.050 --> 00:14:06.260
  • THERE ARE SOME OF HIS PEOPLE
  • 00:14:06.260 --> 00:14:08.020
  • THAT GOD COULD JUST
  • 00:14:08.020 --> 00:14:09.050
  • TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING,
  • 00:14:09.050 --> 00:14:10.090
  • BUT I CAN GUARANTEE,
  • 00:14:10.090 --> 00:14:12.010
  • THAT'S NOT THE WAY
  • 00:14:12.010 --> 00:14:12.220
  • THAT GOD WANTS IT DONE.
  • 00:14:12.220 --> 00:14:15.090
  • I USED TO PRAY IN THE BEGINNING
  • 00:14:15.090 --> 00:14:16.170
  • OF MY MINISTRY...
  • 00:14:16.170 --> 00:14:17.130
  • I HATED RECEIVING OFFERINGS,
  • 00:14:17.130 --> 00:14:19.020
  • I HATED TALKING ABOUT MONEY,
  • 00:14:19.020 --> 00:14:21.060
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE ALWAYS SUSPECT
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:23.070
  • THAT A MINISTER
  • 00:14:23.070 --> 00:14:23.280
  • IS TALKING ABOUT MONEY,
  • 00:14:23.280 --> 00:14:25.020
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE TRYING TO GET
  • 00:14:25.020 --> 00:14:26.160
  • THEIR MONEY,
  • 00:14:26.160 --> 00:14:27.130
  • YOU'RE TRYING TO GET PEOPLE
  • 00:14:27.130 --> 00:14:28.080
  • TO GIVE TO YOU,
  • 00:14:28.080 --> 00:14:29.170
  • AND SO, I JUST DIDN'T LIKE
  • 00:14:29.170 --> 00:14:30.190
  • THE CRITICISM,
  • 00:14:30.190 --> 00:14:32.040
  • AND I ACTUALLY PRAYED THAT GOD
  • 00:14:32.040 --> 00:14:33.180
  • WOULD JUST GIVE ME SO MUCH MONEY
  • 00:14:33.180 --> 00:14:34.240
  • I WOULD NEVER HAVE
  • 00:14:34.240 --> 00:14:35.250
  • TO MENTION MONEY,
  • 00:14:35.250 --> 00:14:36.250
  • I WOULD NEVER HAVE TO RECEIVE
  • 00:14:36.250 --> 00:14:38.010
  • AN OFFERING OR ANYTHING.
  • 00:14:38.010 --> 00:14:40.080
  • BUT OVER THE YEARS,
  • 00:14:40.080 --> 00:14:40.280
  • STUDYING THE WORD,
  • 00:14:40.280 --> 00:14:41.230
  • GOD HAS CONVINCED ME THAT
  • 00:14:41.230 --> 00:14:43.040
  • THAT IS NOT HIS WILL.
  • 00:14:43.040 --> 00:14:45.020
  • IT'S NOT THAT HE NEEDS
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:46.120
  • OUR MONEY,
  • 00:14:46.120 --> 00:14:47.000
  • IT'S NOT THAT I NEED YOUR MONEY,
  • 00:14:47.000 --> 00:14:48.120
  • BUT YOU NEED TO TRUST GOD,
  • 00:14:48.280 --> 00:14:51.280
  • AND I BELIEVE THAT IF I HAD
  • 00:14:51.280 --> 00:14:54.000
  • BILLIONS IN THE BANK,
  • 00:14:54.000 --> 00:14:55.110
  • WHICH I DON'T,
  • 00:14:55.110 --> 00:14:56.050
  • BUT IF I HAD SO MUCH MONEY
  • 00:14:56.050 --> 00:14:57.250
  • THAT I NEVER HAD TO RECEIVE
  • 00:14:57.250 --> 00:14:59.120
  • AN OFFERING AGAIN,
  • 00:14:59.120 --> 00:15:00.180
  • I WOULD STILL RECEIVE OFFERINGS,
  • 00:15:00.180 --> 00:15:02.020
  • BECAUSE IT'S GOOD FOR YOU.
  • 00:15:02.020 --> 00:15:04.020
  • IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU TRUSTING GOD.
  • 00:15:04.080 --> 00:15:07.080
  • IT'S NOT ABOUT WHAT MY NEED IS.
  • 00:15:08.220 --> 00:15:11.220
  • YOU KNOW, I WAS INVITED
  • 00:15:11.220 --> 00:15:12.240
  • TO MINISTER
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:14.050
  • IN ONE OF MY BIBLE SCHOOL
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:15.190
  • GRADUATE'S CHURCH,
  • 00:15:15.190 --> 00:15:17.170
  • AND THEY LIVED UP
  • 00:15:17.170 --> 00:15:18.070
  • IN THE MOUNTAINS OF COLORADO.
  • 00:15:18.070 --> 00:15:19.200
  • THEY ONLY HAD LIKE 30 PEOPLE
  • 00:15:19.200 --> 00:15:21.030
  • IN THEIR CHURCH,
  • 00:15:21.030 --> 00:15:21.290
  • AND SINCE IT WAS SUCH
  • 00:15:21.290 --> 00:15:22.190
  • A SMALL GROUP,
  • 00:15:22.190 --> 00:15:24.020
  • THEY ASKED TWO OTHER CHURCHES
  • 00:15:24.020 --> 00:15:25.150
  • TO GO TOGETHER WITH THEM,
  • 00:15:25.150 --> 00:15:26.160
  • AND SO, WE MET,
  • 00:15:26.160 --> 00:15:27.090
  • AND THERE WAS, MAYBE,
  • 00:15:27.090 --> 00:15:28.000
  • 100 PEOPLE TOTAL
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:29.200
  • THAT CAME TO THESE MEETINGS,
  • 00:15:29.200 --> 00:15:31.070
  • AND BECAUSE THERE WAS
  • 00:15:31.070 --> 00:15:32.060
  • SO FEW PEOPLE,
  • 00:15:32.060 --> 00:15:33.080
  • THEY WERE AFRAID
  • 00:15:33.080 --> 00:15:34.040
  • THAT THEY WOULDN'T GET
  • 00:15:34.040 --> 00:15:34.270
  • A VERY GOOD OFFERING FOR ME,
  • 00:15:34.270 --> 00:15:36.080
  • SO, THE PASTOR ASKED ME
  • 00:15:36.080 --> 00:15:37.250
  • IF I WOULD RECEIVE
  • 00:15:37.250 --> 00:15:38.180
  • MY OWN OFFERINGS.
  • 00:15:38.180 --> 00:15:40.040
  • SO, I GOT UP AND I STARTED
  • 00:15:40.040 --> 00:15:41.260
  • BY TELLING THE PEOPLE,
  • 00:15:41.260 --> 00:15:43.100
  • I SAID, I JUST CAME FROM
  • 00:15:43.100 --> 00:15:44.150
  • CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA,
  • 00:15:44.150 --> 00:15:45.230
  • WHERE THE PEOPLE GAVE ME,
  • 00:15:45.230 --> 00:15:46.290
  • LIKE...I FORGOT WHAT IT WAS,
  • 00:15:46.290 --> 00:15:48.100
  • BUT IT WAS HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:49.250
  • OF DOLLARS FOR FIVE DAYS.
  • 00:15:49.250 --> 00:15:51.150
  • I SAID, I AM NOT A POOR PREACHER
  • 00:15:51.150 --> 00:15:54.110
  • THAT JUST GOT INTO TOWN
  • 00:15:54.110 --> 00:15:56.010
  • AND IF YOU DON'T GIVE,
  • 00:15:56.010 --> 00:15:57.030
  • I WON'T BE ABLE TO GET HOME.
  • 00:15:57.030 --> 00:15:58.260
  • I SAID, I DON'T NEED YOUR MONEY.
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:16:01.070
  • THAT'S THE WAY I STARTED
  • 00:16:01.070 --> 00:16:02.220
  • THE OFFERING TALK,
  • 00:16:02.220 --> 00:16:04.130
  • AND WHEN I SAID THAT,
  • 00:16:04.130 --> 00:16:05.120
  • MAN, YOU COULD JUST SEE
  • 00:16:05.120 --> 00:16:06.100
  • ALL THE COLOR DRAIN OUT
  • 00:16:06.100 --> 00:16:07.210
  • OF THIS PASTOR'S FACE,
  • 00:16:07.210 --> 00:16:08.280
  • LIKE, WELL, MAN, YOU KILLED
  • 00:16:08.280 --> 00:16:10.070
  • THE OFFERING,
  • 00:16:10.070 --> 00:16:11.050
  • BECAUSE, AGAIN, SEE,
  • 00:16:11.050 --> 00:16:11.290
  • MOST PEOPLE, THE ONLY WAY
  • 00:16:11.290 --> 00:16:13.250
  • THAT THEY RECEIVE OFFERINGS
  • 00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:15.060
  • IS TO SAY, WE'RE IN NEED,
  • 00:16:15.060 --> 00:16:17.060
  • WE'RE IN TROUBLE,
  • 00:16:17.060 --> 00:16:18.030
  • COULD YOU PLEASE HELP US?
  • 00:16:18.030 --> 00:16:19.220
  • AND THEY PLAY ON PITY
  • 00:16:19.220 --> 00:16:21.100
  • AND THEY GET SYMPATHY
  • 00:16:21.100 --> 00:16:22.170
  • AND PEOPLE GIVE
  • 00:16:22.170 --> 00:16:23.090
  • OUT OF A SENSE OF OBLIGATION
  • 00:16:23.090 --> 00:16:25.120
  • OR OUT OF A SENSE OF PITY
  • 00:16:25.120 --> 00:16:27.100
  • AND COMPASSION,
  • 00:16:27.100 --> 00:16:28.270
  • AND EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:16:28.270 --> 00:16:29.270
  • THAT IS ONE MOTIVATION
  • 00:16:29.270 --> 00:16:31.190
  • FOR GIVING,
  • 00:16:31.190 --> 00:16:32.040
  • THAT IS REALLY NOT
  • 00:16:32.040 --> 00:16:33.090
  • THE RIGHT REPRESENTATION
  • 00:16:33.090 --> 00:16:34.280
  • OF THINGS.
  • 00:16:34.280 --> 00:16:35.210
  • I GOT UP AND TOLD THE PEOPLE,
  • 00:16:35.210 --> 00:16:36.190
  • I DON'T NEED YOUR MONEY.
  • 00:16:36.190 --> 00:16:38.080
  • YOU NEED TO GIVE FOR YOU,
  • 00:16:38.080 --> 00:16:41.000
  • NOT FOR ME,
  • 00:16:41.000 --> 00:16:42.070
  • AND I STARTED TEACHING THEM
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:44.090
  • ABOUT HOW TRUSTING IN MONEY
  • 00:16:44.090 --> 00:16:46.250
  • AND SAYING
  • 00:16:46.250 --> 00:16:47.170
  • THAT YOU'RE TRUSTING GOD,
  • 00:16:47.170 --> 00:16:48.250
  • BUT THEN NOT ACTING ON IT,
  • 00:16:48.250 --> 00:16:50.100
  • NOT DOING SOMETHING
  • 00:16:50.100 --> 00:16:51.160
  • THAT PUTS YOU IN A POSITION
  • 00:16:51.160 --> 00:16:52.210
  • WHERE YOU NEED GOD'S BLESSING
  • 00:16:52.210 --> 00:16:55.020
  • TO BE ABLE TO MAKE IT,
  • 00:16:55.020 --> 00:16:55.280
  • I SAID, THAT'S THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:16:55.280 --> 00:16:57.010
  • THAT'S WHAT ABOUT...
  • 00:16:57.010 --> 00:16:57.280
  • THAT'S WHAT GIVING IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:16:57.280 --> 00:16:59.290
  • IT'S ABOUT TRUST,
  • 00:16:59.290 --> 00:17:01.020
  • IT'S ABOUT SHOWING
  • 00:17:01.020 --> 00:17:01.290
  • THAT, GOD, I'M NOT ONLY
  • 00:17:01.290 --> 00:17:03.000
  • GOING TO SAY THIS,
  • 00:17:03.000 --> 00:17:04.090
  • BUT I'M GOING TO DEMONSTRATE
  • 00:17:04.090 --> 00:17:05.220
  • THAT YOU ARE MY SOURCE,
  • 00:17:05.220 --> 00:17:07.090
  • AND TO PROVE IT,
  • 00:17:07.090 --> 00:17:08.000
  • I'M TAKING A PORTION
  • 00:17:08.000 --> 00:17:08.270
  • OF WHAT I'VE GOT
  • 00:17:08.270 --> 00:17:10.010
  • AND I'M GIVING IT AWAY,
  • 00:17:10.010 --> 00:17:12.040
  • BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT YOU
  • 00:17:12.040 --> 00:17:13.080
  • WILL MULTIPLY IT BACK TO ME.
  • 00:17:13.080 --> 00:17:14.260
  • THAT'S WHAT GIVING IS ALL ABOUT,
  • 00:17:14.260 --> 00:17:16.200
  • AND DID YOU KNOW THAT,
  • 00:17:16.200 --> 00:17:17.130
  • BECAUSE I DID THAT,
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:19.070
  • AND I WAS THERE, I THINK,
  • 00:17:19.070 --> 00:17:20.040
  • FOR THREE DAYS,
  • 00:17:20.040 --> 00:17:21.030
  • AND I TAUGHT ALL THREE DAYS
  • 00:17:21.030 --> 00:17:22.200
  • AND RECEIVED THESE OFFERINGS,
  • 00:17:22.200 --> 00:17:24.190
  • THE PASTOR OF THAT CHURCH
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:26.000
  • THE NEXT WEEK, CALLED ME
  • 00:17:26.000 --> 00:17:28.010
  • AND HE SAYS, I HONESTLY
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:29.150
  • DON'T REMEMBER WHAT YOU TAUGHT
  • 00:17:29.150 --> 00:17:31.080
  • DURING YOUR MAIN MESSAGE
  • 00:17:31.080 --> 00:17:32.130
  • EVERY NIGHT,
  • 00:17:32.130 --> 00:17:33.010
  • BUT I REMEMBER
  • 00:17:33.010 --> 00:17:33.220
  • THOSE OFFERING TALKS.
  • 00:17:33.220 --> 00:17:34.280
  • HE SAYS, IT REVOLUTIONIZED
  • 00:17:34.280 --> 00:17:36.110
  • MY LIFE.
  • 00:17:36.110 --> 00:17:37.140
  • HE SAID, I KNEW THESE THINGS,
  • 00:17:37.140 --> 00:17:39.150
  • BUT I WASN'T TELLING THE PEOPLE
  • 00:17:39.150 --> 00:17:40.260
  • IN MY CHURCH,
  • 00:17:40.260 --> 00:17:41.210
  • BECAUSE I THOUGHT
  • 00:17:41.210 --> 00:17:42.140
  • THAT THEY WOULD THINK
  • 00:17:42.140 --> 00:17:43.150
  • I WAS AFTER THEIR MONEY,
  • 00:17:43.150 --> 00:17:45.030
  • AND HE SAID, I WAS EMBARRASSED
  • 00:17:45.030 --> 00:17:46.150
  • AND I WAS APOLOGETIC.
  • 00:17:46.150 --> 00:17:47.250
  • SO, ON SUNDAY MORNING
  • 00:17:47.250 --> 00:17:49.030
  • AFTER I HAD LEFT,
  • 00:17:49.030 --> 00:17:50.270
  • HE GOT UP IN FRONT OF HIS CHURCH
  • 00:17:50.270 --> 00:17:52.080
  • AND HE CONFESSED TO THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:52.080 --> 00:17:53.100
  • HE SAID, I KNEW THESE THINGS,
  • 00:17:53.100 --> 00:17:54.180
  • BUT I HAVEN'T BEEN TEACHING YOU
  • 00:17:54.180 --> 00:17:56.010
  • THE TRUTH ON GIVING,
  • 00:17:56.010 --> 00:17:57.190
  • BECAUSE OF THE CRITICISM
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:17:59.070
  • THAT I KNEW I WOULD RECEIVE,
  • 00:17:59.070 --> 00:18:00.160
  • AND HE GOT IN FRONT
  • 00:18:00.160 --> 00:18:01.060
  • OF THE PEOPLE
  • 00:18:01.060 --> 00:18:01.260
  • AND HE APOLOGIZED
  • 00:18:01.260 --> 00:18:03.050
  • AND HE GOT ON HIS KNEES
  • 00:18:03.050 --> 00:18:04.000
  • AND HE SAYS, PLEASE FORGIVE ME
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:06.110
  • FOR NOT TELLING YOU THE TRUTH
  • 00:18:06.110 --> 00:18:08.060
  • AND NOT SETTING YOU FREE
  • 00:18:08.060 --> 00:18:09.170
  • IN THIS AREA OF FINANCES,
  • 00:18:09.170 --> 00:18:11.100
  • AND THE PEOPLE STARTED
  • 00:18:11.100 --> 00:18:12.050
  • RUNNING TO THE FRONT
  • 00:18:12.050 --> 00:18:13.010
  • AND HUGGING HIM AND SAYING,
  • 00:18:13.010 --> 00:18:13.260
  • PASTOR, WE LOVE YOU,
  • 00:18:13.260 --> 00:18:14.230
  • WE FORGIVE YOU,
  • 00:18:14.230 --> 00:18:15.160
  • AND THEY STARTED THROWING MONEY
  • 00:18:15.160 --> 00:18:16.160
  • ON THE PLATFORM,
  • 00:18:16.160 --> 00:18:17.290
  • AND I...I THINK THE DETAILS
  • 00:18:17.290 --> 00:18:19.160
  • WAS THAT THEY PAID OFF
  • 00:18:19.160 --> 00:18:20.150
  • $10.000 WORTH OF INDEBTEDNESS
  • 00:18:20.250 --> 00:18:23.250
  • THAT MORNING FROM, LIKE,
  • 00:18:23.250 --> 00:18:25.010
  • 20 SOMETHING PEOPLE,
  • 00:18:25.010 --> 00:18:26.150
  • AND YOU KNOW, MANY OF THOSE
  • 00:18:26.150 --> 00:18:27.160
  • HAD TO BE HUSBAND AND WIFE,
  • 00:18:27.160 --> 00:18:29.000
  • SO THERE...THERE WASN'T...
  • 00:18:29.000 --> 00:18:30.150
  • THERE PROBABLY WASN'T
  • 00:18:30.150 --> 00:18:31.070
  • OVER 15 DIFFERENT PEOPLE,
  • 00:18:31.070 --> 00:18:33.110
  • MAYBE 20 MAXIMUM,
  • 00:18:33.110 --> 00:18:34.210
  • AND THEY PAID OFF SOMETHING LIKE
  • 00:18:34.210 --> 00:18:36.060
  • $10.000 WORTH OF CHURCH
  • 00:18:36.060 --> 00:18:38.240
  • INDEBTEDNESS JUST BECAUSE
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:41.010
  • OF THIS...THESE TRUTHS.
  • 00:18:41.010 --> 00:18:43.060
  • I'M TELLING YOU, IT'S ALL ABOUT
  • 00:18:43.060 --> 00:18:44.090
  • WHERE YOUR TRUST IS.
  • 00:18:44.090 --> 00:18:45.190
  • IF YOU WERE TO TAKE
  • 00:18:45.190 --> 00:18:46.270
  • THIS VERSE WHERE JESUS SAID,
  • 00:18:46.270 --> 00:18:48.130
  • IN VERSE 23,
  • 00:18:48.130 --> 00:18:49.160
  • HOW HARDLY SHALL THEY
  • 00:18:49.160 --> 00:18:50.160
  • THAT HAVE RICHES
  • 00:18:50.160 --> 00:18:51.090
  • ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD,
  • 00:18:51.090 --> 00:18:53.110
  • AND IF YOU TOOK THAT VERSE
  • 00:18:53.110 --> 00:18:54.080
  • BY ITSELF
  • 00:18:54.080 --> 00:18:55.050
  • AND JUST MADE IT STAND ALONE,
  • 00:18:55.050 --> 00:18:57.110
  • THIS WOULD LOOK LIKE ANY PERSON
  • 00:18:57.110 --> 00:18:59.150
  • WHO HAS ANY MONEY,
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:00.180
  • WHO'S WEALTHY AT...IN ANY WAY
  • 00:19:00.180 --> 00:19:02.130
  • AT ALL,
  • 00:19:02.130 --> 00:19:03.060
  • COULD NOT BE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:05.170
  • BUT THEN WHEN YOU PUT IT
  • 00:19:05.170 --> 00:19:06.100
  • TOGETHER WITH HIS CLARIFICATION
  • 00:19:06.100 --> 00:19:08.040
  • IN VERSE 24, HE SAYS, CHILDREN,
  • 00:19:08.040 --> 00:19:10.020
  • HOW HARD IS IT FOR THEM
  • 00:19:10.020 --> 00:19:11.200
  • THAT TRUST IN RICHES TO ENTER
  • 00:19:11.200 --> 00:19:14.180
  • INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD!
  • 00:19:14.180 --> 00:19:16.180
  • MONEY'S NOT THE PROBLEM;
  • 00:19:16.180 --> 00:19:19.120
  • IT'S TRUST, IT'S FAITH.
  • 00:19:19.200 --> 00:19:22.200
  • WHAT ARE YOU PUTTING
  • 00:19:22.200 --> 00:19:23.060
  • YOUR TRUST IN?
  • 00:19:23.060 --> 00:19:24.030
  • AND IF YOU'RE SAYING,
  • 00:19:24.030 --> 00:19:24.210
  • WELL, I WANT TO GIVE,
  • 00:19:24.210 --> 00:19:25.180
  • BUT I NEED THIS MONEY,
  • 00:19:25.180 --> 00:19:27.010
  • YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING?
  • 00:19:27.010 --> 00:19:27.190
  • YOU'RE TRUSTING
  • 00:19:27.190 --> 00:19:30.050
  • THAT MONEY MORE THAN
  • 00:19:30.050 --> 00:19:31.200
  • YOU'RE TRUSTING GOD
  • 00:19:31.200 --> 00:19:33.260
  • AND YOU CAN WHITEWASH THAT,
  • 00:19:33.260 --> 00:19:35.040
  • YOU CAN TRY AND REALIGN
  • 00:19:35.140 --> 00:19:38.140
  • THOSE WORDS,
  • 00:19:38.140 --> 00:19:40.150
  • PUT THEM TOGETHER
  • 00:19:40.150 --> 00:19:41.010
  • ANYWAY YOU WANT TO,
  • 00:19:41.010 --> 00:19:42.050
  • BUT THERE'S JUST NO WAY
  • 00:19:42.050 --> 00:19:42.290
  • TO CHANGE THAT.
  • 00:19:42.290 --> 00:19:44.120
  • IF YOU AREN'T GIVING...IF YOU
  • 00:19:44.120 --> 00:19:46.050
  • AREN'T TITHING AND GIVING
  • 00:19:46.050 --> 00:19:47.180
  • EVEN ABOVE A TITHE AND GIVING
  • 00:19:47.180 --> 00:19:49.280
  • WHEN THERE'S OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:19:49.280 --> 00:19:51.210
  • TO BE A BLESSING TO SOMEONE,
  • 00:19:51.210 --> 00:19:53.050
  • AND IF YOU AREN'T DOING IT,
  • 00:19:53.050 --> 00:19:54.040
  • BECAUSE YOU NEED THIS MONEY,
  • 00:19:54.040 --> 00:19:57.000
  • THEN YOU ARE TRUSTING
  • 00:19:57.000 --> 00:19:58.100
  • IN THAT MONEY MORE THAN
  • 00:19:58.100 --> 00:20:00.000
  • YOU'RE TRUSTING IN GOD.
  • 00:20:00.000 --> 00:20:02.010
  • NOW THERE'S A BALANCE TO THIS.
  • 00:20:02.010 --> 00:20:03.010
  • I'M NOT TELLING YOU
  • 00:20:03.010 --> 00:20:03.220
  • TO GIVE EVERYTHING AWAY
  • 00:20:03.220 --> 00:20:04.280
  • AND TO DO FOOLISH THINGS,
  • 00:20:04.280 --> 00:20:06.120
  • STUPID THINGS,
  • 00:20:06.120 --> 00:20:07.270
  • BUT I'M SAYING THAT WHEN GOD
  • 00:20:07.270 --> 00:20:09.020
  • LEADS YOU TO DO SOMETHING,
  • 00:20:09.020 --> 00:20:10.080
  • AND THE WORD MAKES IT
  • 00:20:10.080 --> 00:20:11.040
  • VERY CLEAR
  • 00:20:11.040 --> 00:20:12.120
  • THAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:20:12.120 --> 00:20:13.060
  • PAY A TITHE.
  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:14.070
  • I'M GOING TO DEAL WITH THIS.
  • 00:20:14.070 --> 00:20:15.210
  • THERE'S SOME PEOPLE THAT SAY,
  • 00:20:15.210 --> 00:20:16.220
  • WELL, IN THE NEW TESTAMENT...
  • 00:20:16.220 --> 00:20:17.250
  • THE TITHE WAS AN OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:20:17.250 --> 00:20:19.100
  • THING,
  • 00:20:19.100 --> 00:20:19.200
  • IN THE NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 00:20:19.200 --> 00:20:20.110
  • WE DON'T TITHE.
  • 00:20:20.110 --> 00:20:21.070
  • I'M GOING TO ANSWER
  • 00:20:21.070 --> 00:20:21.290
  • ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS
  • 00:20:21.290 --> 00:20:23.100
  • IN MORE DETAIL
  • 00:20:23.100 --> 00:20:24.090
  • AS WE GO THROUGH THIS SERIES,
  • 00:20:24.090 --> 00:20:25.180
  • OR YOU COULD GET THESE MATERIALS
  • 00:20:25.180 --> 00:20:27.200
  • AND IT WOULD ANSWER THIS
  • 00:20:27.200 --> 00:20:28.180
  • IN MORE DETAIL.
  • 00:20:28.180 --> 00:20:29.290
  • BUT AGAIN, IT'S NOT MONEY
  • 00:20:29.290 --> 00:20:31.280
  • THAT'S THE ISSUE,
  • 00:20:31.280 --> 00:20:32.260
  • IT'S YOUR TRUST,
  • 00:20:32.260 --> 00:20:34.170
  • AND IF YOU'RE SAYING,
  • 00:20:34.170 --> 00:20:35.070
  • I WANT TO GIVE,
  • 00:20:35.070 --> 00:20:36.040
  • BUT I NEED THIS,
  • 00:20:36.040 --> 00:20:37.040
  • YOU ARE TRUSTING THAT MONEY
  • 00:20:37.040 --> 00:20:40.020
  • MORE THAN YOU'RE TRUSTING GOD
  • 00:20:40.020 --> 00:20:41.110
  • AND THERE'S JUST NO WAY
  • 00:20:41.110 --> 00:20:42.050
  • AROUND THAT,
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:42.240
  • THERE'S NO OTHER WAY
  • 00:20:42.240 --> 00:20:43.140
  • TO LOOK AT THIS.
  • 00:20:43.140 --> 00:20:45.050
  • AND SO, WHEN HE SAID THIS...
  • 00:20:45.050 --> 00:20:46.260
  • LOOK AT THIS, IN THE NEXT VERSE,
  • 00:20:46.260 --> 00:20:47.280
  • HE SAYS, IT IS EASIER
  • 00:20:47.280 --> 00:20:49.070
  • FOR A CAMEL TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:50.180
  • THE EYE OF A NEEDLE,
  • 00:20:50.180 --> 00:20:52.200
  • THAN FOR A RICH MAN TO ENTER
  • 00:20:52.200 --> 00:20:54.030
  • INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD,
  • 00:20:54.030 --> 00:20:55.140
  • AND THEN IT SAYS,
  • 00:20:55.140 --> 00:20:56.270
  • THEY WERE ASTONISHED
  • 00:20:56.270 --> 00:20:57.270
  • OUT OF MEASURE,
  • 00:20:57.270 --> 00:21:00.080
  • SAYING AMONG THEMSELVES,
  • 00:21:00.080 --> 00:21:01.090
  • WHO THEN CAN BE SAVED?
  • 00:21:01.090 --> 00:21:04.090
  • MAN, IF THEY WERE SHOCKED
  • 00:21:04.090 --> 00:21:05.080
  • THE FIRST TIME,
  • 00:21:05.080 --> 00:21:06.060
  • NOW THEY'RE EVEN MORE SHOCKED
  • 00:21:06.060 --> 00:21:07.180
  • BECAUSE JESUS IS SAYING
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:08.210
  • IT'S EASIER FOR A CAMEL
  • 00:21:08.210 --> 00:21:10.010
  • TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:21:10.010 --> 00:21:10.170
  • THE EYE OF A NEEDLE
  • 00:21:10.170 --> 00:21:11.160
  • THAN IT IS FOR A RICH MAN
  • 00:21:11.160 --> 00:21:12.200
  • TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:21:12.200 --> 00:21:14.120
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE HEARD
  • 00:21:14.120 --> 00:21:15.040
  • MY WHOLE LIFE
  • 00:21:15.040 --> 00:21:16.230
  • THIS EXPLAINED AWAY
  • 00:21:16.230 --> 00:21:17.260
  • AS SAYING THAT WHAT IT MEANS
  • 00:21:17.260 --> 00:21:19.060
  • BY THE EYE OF A NEEDLE
  • 00:21:19.060 --> 00:21:20.140
  • THAT THERE WERE THE LARGE GATES
  • 00:21:20.140 --> 00:21:22.020
  • THAT THEY USED TO GUARD
  • 00:21:22.020 --> 00:21:23.060
  • THE CITY,
  • 00:21:23.060 --> 00:21:24.070
  • AND INSIDE OF THESE LARGE GATES
  • 00:21:24.070 --> 00:21:25.200
  • THERE WAS A SMALLER GATE
  • 00:21:25.200 --> 00:21:27.240
  • THAT WAS CALLED
  • 00:21:27.240 --> 00:21:28.150
  • THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE,
  • 00:21:28.150 --> 00:21:30.090
  • AND A CAMEL COULD
  • 00:21:30.090 --> 00:21:31.080
  • GET THROUGH THERE,
  • 00:21:31.080 --> 00:21:32.000
  • BUT IT WOULD HAVE TO TAKE OFF
  • 00:21:32.000 --> 00:21:33.020
  • ALL OF ITS BURDEN
  • 00:21:33.020 --> 00:21:34.080
  • AND IT WOULD HAVE TO GET DOWN
  • 00:21:34.080 --> 00:21:35.030
  • ON ITS KNEES
  • 00:21:35.030 --> 00:21:35.270
  • AND JUST SCOOT THROUGH
  • 00:21:35.270 --> 00:21:36.240
  • THIS SMALL GATE,
  • 00:21:36.240 --> 00:21:38.040
  • AND SO, PEOPLE HAVE USED THAT
  • 00:21:38.040 --> 00:21:40.000
  • TO SAY THAT
  • 00:21:40.000 --> 00:21:41.140
  • THAT'S WHAT ITS REFERRING TO.
  • 00:21:41.140 --> 00:21:42.170
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:21:42.170 --> 00:21:43.020
  • IT'S NOT IMPOSSIBLE;
  • 00:21:43.020 --> 00:21:44.010
  • IT'S JUST DIFFICULT.
  • 00:21:44.010 --> 00:21:45.120
  • IT MEANS YOU'VE GOT TO GET RID
  • 00:21:45.120 --> 00:21:46.250
  • OF ALL OF THESE OTHER BURDENS
  • 00:21:46.250 --> 00:21:48.070
  • AND JUST GET DOWN
  • 00:21:48.070 --> 00:21:49.040
  • TO THE BARE THINGS
  • 00:21:49.040 --> 00:21:50.000
  • TO GET THROUGH THERE.
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:51.030
  • NO, THAT'S NOT WHAT
  • 00:21:51.030 --> 00:21:51.180
  • IT'S TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:21:51.180 --> 00:21:52.280
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:21:52.280 --> 00:21:54.140
  • I ASKED OUR TOUR GUIDE,
  • 00:21:54.140 --> 00:21:55.150
  • I SAID, I WANT TO SEE
  • 00:21:55.150 --> 00:21:56.100
  • THIS EYE OF THE NEEDLE GATE,
  • 00:21:56.100 --> 00:21:58.210
  • AND HE SAID, WELL,
  • 00:21:58.210 --> 00:21:59.050
  • IT'S ON THE OTHER SIDE
  • 00:21:59.050 --> 00:22:00.060
  • OF THE CITY, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:22:00.060 --> 00:22:01.000
  • I DON'T THINK WE'LL BE ABLE
  • 00:22:01.000 --> 00:22:01.280
  • TO GET THERE TODAY.
  • 00:22:01.280 --> 00:22:02.260
  • I ASKED HIM A COUPLE OF TIMES,
  • 00:22:02.260 --> 00:22:04.210
  • AND FINALLY I SAID,
  • 00:22:04.210 --> 00:22:05.170
  • I DON'T BELIEVE THERE IS A GATE
  • 00:22:05.170 --> 00:22:07.170
  • CALLED THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE,
  • 00:22:07.170 --> 00:22:09.150
  • AND HE JUST LOOKED AT ME
  • 00:22:09.150 --> 00:22:10.080
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:22:10.080 --> 00:22:10.190
  • WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?
  • 00:22:10.190 --> 00:22:11.060
  • I SAID, I DON'T THINK
  • 00:22:11.060 --> 00:22:11.270
  • THAT'S WHAT IT'S TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:22:11.270 --> 00:22:13.090
  • I THINK IT'S TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:22:13.090 --> 00:22:14.010
  • A CAMEL, AN ANIMAL,
  • 00:22:14.010 --> 00:22:15.200
  • GOING THROUGH THE PHYSICAL EYE
  • 00:22:15.200 --> 00:22:17.170
  • OF A SEWING NEEDLE,
  • 00:22:17.170 --> 00:22:19.220
  • AND HE CO...CONFESSED TO HIM,
  • 00:22:19.220 --> 00:22:21.120
  • HE SAYS, THERE IS NO EYE
  • 00:22:21.120 --> 00:22:23.010
  • OF THE NEEDLE GATE.
  • 00:22:23.010 --> 00:22:25.010
  • BUT SEE, IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:22:25.010 --> 00:22:26.030
  • ALL OF THE TOUR GUIDES,
  • 00:22:26.030 --> 00:22:27.160
  • IT'S SOMETHING
  • 00:22:27.160 --> 00:22:28.110
  • THAT'S BY THE GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:22:28.110 --> 00:22:29.230
  • THE GOVERN...YOU HAVE
  • 00:22:29.230 --> 00:22:30.120
  • TO GO THROUGH A GOVERNMENT THING
  • 00:22:30.120 --> 00:22:31.220
  • TO BE A TOUR GUIDE
  • 00:22:31.220 --> 00:22:33.060
  • AND THEY WANT PEOPLE TO HAVE
  • 00:22:33.060 --> 00:22:34.090
  • A GOOD EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:22:34.090 --> 00:22:35.060
  • SO, THEY'LL JUST TELL YOU
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:35.290
  • WHATEVER YOU WANT TO HEAR
  • 00:22:35.290 --> 00:22:38.010
  • TO MAKE YOUR EXPERIENCE
  • 00:22:38.010 --> 00:22:39.020
  • THE BEST,
  • 00:22:39.020 --> 00:22:39.170
  • AND THIS IS A COMMON THING
  • 00:22:39.170 --> 00:22:41.130
  • THAT PEOPLE SAY
  • 00:22:41.130 --> 00:22:42.080
  • THAT THERE'S THIS SMALLER GATE
  • 00:22:42.080 --> 00:22:43.230
  • INSIDE OF A LARGE GATE
  • 00:22:43.230 --> 00:22:44.290
  • AND THAT'S THE EYE
  • 00:22:44.290 --> 00:22:45.130
  • OF THE NEEDLE.
  • 00:22:45.130 --> 00:22:46.090
  • NO, THIS IS TALKING ABOUT,
  • 00:22:46.090 --> 00:22:47.100
  • IT'S EASIER FOR A CAMEL,
  • 00:22:47.250 --> 00:22:50.250
  • A PHYSICAL CAMEL,
  • 00:22:50.250 --> 00:22:52.010
  • TO PASS THROUGH THE EYE
  • 00:22:52.010 --> 00:22:53.220
  • OF A SEWING NEEDLE
  • 00:22:53.220 --> 00:22:55.220
  • THAN IT IS FOR A RICH MAN,
  • 00:22:55.220 --> 00:22:57.290
  • WHO IS TRUSTING IN HIS RICHES
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:23:00.260
  • TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM
  • 00:23:00.260 --> 00:23:01.280
  • OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:23:01.280 --> 00:23:03.090
  • AND YOU CAN TELL THAT
  • 00:23:03.090 --> 00:23:04.030
  • THAT'S WHAT IT'S TALKING ABOUT,
  • 00:23:04.030 --> 00:23:04.240
  • BECAUSE JESUS RESPONDED TO THIS
  • 00:23:04.240 --> 00:23:07.210
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:23:07.210 --> 00:23:08.060
  • WITH MEN IT IS IMPOSSIBLE,
  • 00:23:08.060 --> 00:23:09.250
  • BUT NOT WITH GOD:
  • 00:23:09.250 --> 00:23:10.240
  • FOR WITH GOD ALL THINGS
  • 00:23:10.240 --> 00:23:11.230
  • ARE POSSIBLE.
  • 00:23:11.230 --> 00:23:13.000
  • IF IT WAS JUST TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:23:13.000 --> 00:23:13.280
  • SOMETHING THAT WAS DIFFICULT
  • 00:23:13.280 --> 00:23:15.100
  • TO DO,
  • 00:23:15.100 --> 00:23:15.290
  • WELL THEN THAT...THAT DOESN'T
  • 00:23:15.290 --> 00:23:17.010
  • FIT WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:23:17.010 --> 00:23:17.260
  • HE SAYS, WITH MEN,
  • 00:23:17.260 --> 00:23:18.190
  • THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:23:18.190 --> 00:23:21.130
  • SO, GET THIS WORD PICTURE;
  • 00:23:21.130 --> 00:23:22.180
  • IT'S EASIER FOR A CAMEL
  • 00:23:22.180 --> 00:23:25.040
  • TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:23:25.040 --> 00:23:25.200
  • THE EYE OF A SEWING NEEDLE
  • 00:23:25.200 --> 00:23:27.180
  • THAN IT IS FOR A PERSON,
  • 00:23:27.180 --> 00:23:29.030
  • WHO IS TRUSTING IN THEIR RICHES,
  • 00:23:29.030 --> 00:23:31.250
  • INSTEAD OF TRUSTING IN GOD
  • 00:23:31.250 --> 00:23:33.240
  • TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM
  • 00:23:33.240 --> 00:23:34.290
  • OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:23:34.290 --> 00:23:36.030
  • I'M GOING TO TAKE UP RIGHT THERE
  • 00:23:36.030 --> 00:23:37.120
  • TOMORROW.
  • 00:23:37.120 --> 00:23:38.010
  • YOU NEED TO TUNE IN
  • 00:23:38.010 --> 00:23:39.130
  • AND GET THE REST OF THE STORY.
