  • 00:00:02.140 --> 00:00:04.060
  • Creflo Dollar: Money can't buy everything, amen?
  • 00:00:05.280 --> 00:00:08.000
  • I said money can't buy everything.
  • 00:00:08.010 --> 00:00:11.010
  • Somebody says, "In my universe it can."
  • 00:00:11.020 --> 00:00:15.060
  • You're in the wrong universe.
  • 00:00:15.070 --> 00:00:16.250
  • Money can buy a house, but it can never,
  • 00:00:16.260 --> 00:00:20.100
  • will never be able to buy a home.
  • 00:00:20.110 --> 00:00:24.220
  • Money can buy medicine, it can't buy healing.
  • 00:00:24.230 --> 00:00:30.230
  • Money can buy you a friend for the night,
  • 00:00:30.240 --> 00:00:34.170
  • but it can't buy you a relationship that will last
  • 00:00:34.180 --> 00:00:37.140
  • until Jesus comes.
  • 00:00:37.150 --> 00:00:39.270
  • Are you listening to me?
  • 00:00:39.280 --> 00:00:41.260
  • announcer: Omaha, Nebraska, are you ready for change?
  • 00:00:43.050 --> 00:00:46.100

  • The Change Experience 2019.
  • 00:00:53.200 --> 00:00:57.000
  • male: This is perfect teaching.
  • 00:00:57.010 --> 00:00:58.100
  • This is wholesome teaching.
  • 00:00:58.110 --> 00:00:59.200
  • This is sound doctrine.
  • 00:00:59.210 --> 00:01:01.020
  • This is good.
  • 00:01:01.030 --> 00:01:02.120
  • This is freeing.
  • 00:01:02.130 --> 00:01:04.080
  • announcer: Join us at the Hilton Omaha Downtown
  • 00:01:04.090 --> 00:01:06.120
  • on Friday, September 13.
  • 00:01:06.130 --> 00:01:08.080
  • Call, text, or go online to to register today.
  • 00:01:08.090 --> 00:01:11.200
  • This is your world, so let's vow
  • 00:01:13.030 --> 00:01:16.120
  • to make it a better place.
  • 00:01:16.130 --> 00:01:20.200
  • Let every heart that needs to know your
  • 00:01:20.210 --> 00:01:26.010
  • love is here to stay.
  • 00:01:26.020 --> 00:01:28.070
  • Oh, it's time we live a new life.
  • 00:01:28.080 --> 00:01:32.040
  • Oh, let his love shine bright in you.
  • 00:01:32.050 --> 00:01:36.160
  • Oh, we're saved by his grace, so we embrace
  • 00:01:36.170 --> 00:01:40.270
  • your love today, we are changed.
  • 00:01:40.280 --> 00:01:46.010
  • Creflo: So what do you miss out on when God tells you to do
  • 00:01:48.180 --> 00:01:51.190
  • something and the money is not there and then you fail to step
  • 00:01:51.200 --> 00:01:54.210
  • by faith in that thing?
  • 00:01:54.220 --> 00:01:56.150
  • What are you missing out?
  • 00:01:56.160 --> 00:01:57.250
  • Certain things that should have been born by now were aborted
  • 00:01:57.260 --> 00:02:01.080
  • because you kept saying, "Well, I don't have the money.
  • 00:02:01.090 --> 00:02:05.220
  • Where's the money coming--" Your focus was on the money instead
  • 00:02:05.230 --> 00:02:08.160
  • of your focus being on God your provider.
  • 00:02:08.170 --> 00:02:11.100
  • What did he say?
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:12.200
  • "I will provide all of your needs according
  • 00:02:12.210 --> 00:02:14.140
  • to his riches and glory."
  • 00:02:14.150 --> 00:02:15.240
  • But if you can't see where it's going to come from--you call it
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:18.240
  • being a good manager of money, it's not this
  • 00:02:18.250 --> 00:02:22.150
  • natural way of doing it.
  • 00:02:22.160 --> 00:02:24.130
  • If you're going to operate in the supernatural,
  • 00:02:24.140 --> 00:02:26.080
  • you're going to have to step out like a bare-footed priest not
  • 00:02:26.090 --> 00:02:29.060
  • knowing how it's going to happen,
  • 00:02:29.070 --> 00:02:30.160
  • but knowing God said it.
  • 00:02:30.170 --> 00:02:33.180
  • And you will be amazed the provision that will start
  • 00:02:33.190 --> 00:02:37.270
  • showing up if you just take a step.
  • 00:02:37.280 --> 00:02:40.290
  • If you'll just take a step, favor'll start showing up.
  • 00:02:41.000 --> 00:02:46.100
  • You take a step, somebody call you saying,
  • 00:02:46.110 --> 00:02:47.240
  • "You know, God told me to do this."
  • 00:02:47.250 --> 00:02:49.040
  • You take a step, then money show up.
  • 00:02:49.050 --> 00:02:51.260
  • You take--see, you're thinking--money can't do that
  • 00:02:51.270 --> 00:02:57.030
  • but God can, but there's too much hesitation when God's
  • 00:02:57.040 --> 00:03:02.000
  • telling you to do something because you're thinking,
  • 00:03:02.010 --> 00:03:04.170
  • "Oh, the money.
  • 00:03:04.180 --> 00:03:06.140
  • Where's the money? Where's the money?"
  • 00:03:06.150 --> 00:03:09.260
  • We--I told somebody the other day,
  • 00:03:09.270 --> 00:03:11.260
  • we--I don't believe we've ever had the money to do everything
  • 00:03:11.270 --> 00:03:15.100
  • that God told us to do.
  • 00:03:15.110 --> 00:03:17.040
  • We had to start first.
  • 00:03:17.050 --> 00:03:19.090
  • So the only thing we could afford to do was call the
  • 00:03:19.100 --> 00:03:21.280
  • commissioners and put a little ribbon out there and get a
  • 00:03:21.290 --> 00:03:24.220
  • shovel and we could afford to dig a hole,
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:28.280
  • and what we said was, "We started a dome."
  • 00:03:28.290 --> 00:03:32.020
  • Somebody says, "What are you talking about?"
  • 00:03:32.030 --> 00:03:33.120
  • "We started it." "How?"
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:34.250
  • "We dug a hole."
  • 00:03:34.260 --> 00:03:37.210
  • That's paid for. That's paid for.
  • 00:03:37.220 --> 00:03:42.080
  • And in some cases, you got to start right there.
  • 00:03:42.090 --> 00:03:45.140
  • We dig a hole, praise the Lord, and rejoice over that
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:47.120
  • hole that's been dug.
  • 00:03:47.130 --> 00:03:48.220
  • Praise God.
  • 00:03:48.230 --> 00:03:50.030
  • Then the money came in to clear the trees off.
  • 00:03:50.040 --> 00:03:52.120
  • We cleared the trees off.
  • 00:03:52.130 --> 00:03:53.220
  • Glory be to God.
  • 00:03:53.230 --> 00:03:55.020
  • Then money came in--it was a glorious day when
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:57.010
  • we poured the concrete.
  • 00:03:57.020 --> 00:03:58.250
  • Oh my God, we poured it.
  • 00:03:58.260 --> 00:04:00.130
  • It looked like a Roman Coliseum.
  • 00:04:00.140 --> 00:04:01.270
  • We poured the concrete.
  • 00:04:01.280 --> 00:04:03.120
  • I said, "Praise God, I'm walking on paid concrete."
  • 00:04:03.130 --> 00:04:07.090
  • Glory to God.
  • 00:04:07.100 --> 00:04:08.190
  • Then they put the beams up all around it and then that little
  • 00:04:08.200 --> 00:04:10.120
  • round thing at the top, and I'm like,
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:12.030
  • "That's paid for."
  • 00:04:12.040 --> 00:04:13.230
  • And then stuff started happening, "And that's paid--"
  • 00:04:13.240 --> 00:04:15.280
  • And so--"That's paid for."
  • 00:04:15.290 --> 00:04:17.130
  • --"That paid up."
  • 00:04:17.140 --> 00:04:19.050
  • And when we marched in this building,
  • 00:04:19.060 --> 00:04:21.020
  • we didn't march in a building that was just prayed for,
  • 00:04:21.030 --> 00:04:24.160
  • we marched in the building that was just paid for;
  • 00:04:24.170 --> 00:04:26.290
  • and we didn't know what that money was going to come from at
  • 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:29.080
  • that particular time, but we believed God.
  • 00:04:29.090 --> 00:04:31.260
  • Supernatural things started happening.
  • 00:04:31.270 --> 00:04:33.240
  • I mean, we had in the chapel and people started throwing money.
  • 00:04:33.250 --> 00:04:36.260
  • Brother John--in fact, it was Taffi,
  • 00:04:36.270 --> 00:04:41.190
  • Brother John, and somebody else.
  • 00:04:41.200 --> 00:04:43.040
  • I was just--you know, I don't know about no peace offering,
  • 00:04:43.050 --> 00:04:46.040
  • I was just stressed out because we like,
  • 00:04:46.050 --> 00:04:47.280
  • "If you don't have $2, $3 million by such and such time,
  • 00:04:47.290 --> 00:04:52.040
  • we going to have to shut the whole thing down."
  • 00:04:52.050 --> 00:04:53.140
  • And it costs more money.
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:54.240
  • You shut it down, it's just sits there and stuff like that.
  • 00:04:54.250 --> 00:04:56.270
  • They said, "You just take a break.
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:04:58.070
  • We got this."
  • 00:04:58.080 --> 00:04:59.170
  • And I never forget this thing.
  • 00:04:59.180 --> 00:05:00.290
  • Taffi came up and she says, "I'm going to get my whole check."
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:03.160
  • And I'm thinking like, "We got bills.
  • 00:05:03.170 --> 00:05:08.040
  • What? Your whole check?"
  • 00:05:08.050 --> 00:05:10.040
  • The congregations followed.
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:13.040
  • They had--people had houses they were getting ready to close on.
  • 00:05:13.050 --> 00:05:15.240
  • They had cars they were getting ready to buy.
  • 00:05:15.250 --> 00:05:17.100
  • They canceled all of that.
  • 00:05:17.110 --> 00:05:18.270
  • They gave their week's salary and begin to just give,
  • 00:05:18.280 --> 00:05:22.200
  • and in that meeting before the--I've never to this
  • 00:05:22.210 --> 00:05:27.130
  • day seen anything like it.
  • 00:05:27.140 --> 00:05:29.110
  • People were running to their cars getting money.
  • 00:05:29.120 --> 00:05:32.160
  • People were running home to get money.
  • 00:05:32.170 --> 00:05:34.080
  • The power of God came in that place so we were getting hittin'
  • 00:05:34.090 --> 00:05:37.020
  • with coins and--we literally--keepers got
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:40.250
  • us an umbrella.
  • 00:05:40.260 --> 00:05:42.050
  • I'm not kidding. This is on tape.
  • 00:05:42.060 --> 00:05:43.150
  • Got us an umbrella so we wouldn't get injured by the
  • 00:05:43.160 --> 00:05:45.060
  • money that was flying.
  • 00:05:45.070 --> 00:05:46.200
  • And then Brother John came to me and he said,
  • 00:05:46.210 --> 00:05:48.190
  • "Brother Creflo," he said, "we--do you think we need to
  • 00:05:48.200 --> 00:05:56.030
  • stop the offering?"
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:57.160
  • I said "Oh, no."
  • 00:05:57.170 --> 00:06:00.030
  • He said, "Somebody could get injured.
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:01.130
  • They--listen, they're running over each other.
  • 00:06:01.140 --> 00:06:03.000
  • They're flipping over each other trying to get
  • 00:06:03.010 --> 00:06:04.190
  • to the offering to give the--"
  • 00:06:04.200 --> 00:06:05.290
  • And he said, "They could get injured in a meeting like this."
  • 00:06:06.000 --> 00:06:08.150
  • I said, "We will pray healing on them.
  • 00:06:08.160 --> 00:06:09.250
  • Let's not call this overwith right now."
  • 00:06:09.260 --> 00:06:11.240
  • [laughing]
  • 00:06:11.250 --> 00:06:13.160
  • How many of you were there or remember that?
  • 00:06:13.170 --> 00:06:16.030
  • I mean, this is real. This happened.
  • 00:06:16.040 --> 00:06:18.080
  • We didn't know, but we knew if we trusted God;
  • 00:06:18.090 --> 00:06:21.130
  • that God will do something if we just take that step of,
  • 00:06:21.140 --> 00:06:25.140
  • what's this, trust.
  • 00:06:25.150 --> 00:06:27.010
  • Trust is the currency.
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:28.210
  • Trust brought the favor.
  • 00:06:28.220 --> 00:06:30.020
  • Trust did all of that.
  • 00:06:30.030 --> 00:06:31.180
  • You're not moved by what you see,
  • 00:06:31.190 --> 00:06:33.120
  • you move by what he said and you trust what he said.
  • 00:06:33.130 --> 00:06:37.250
  • You trust the provision that he said has already
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:41.190
  • been put in place.
  • 00:06:41.200 --> 00:06:42.290
  • Praise God.
  • 00:06:43.000 --> 00:06:44.230
  • Doctor Grey Paul wrote this book,
  • 00:06:44.240 --> 00:06:48.010
  • "Vision vs. Provision,"
  • 00:06:48.020 --> 00:06:50.080
  • and he got to preaching this message.
  • 00:06:50.090 --> 00:06:52.010
  • He said, "I can tell you why you don't have provision.
  • 00:06:52.020 --> 00:06:55.180
  • What's your vision?"
  • 00:06:55.190 --> 00:06:56.290
  • And they couldn't tell.
  • 00:06:57.000 --> 00:06:58.090
  • He said, "Well, you don't need no provision.
  • 00:06:58.100 --> 00:07:01.140
  • You don't need no provision.
  • 00:07:01.150 --> 00:07:03.060
  • Reason why you ain't got no provision 'cause you
  • 00:07:03.070 --> 00:07:04.260
  • ain't got no vision.
  • 00:07:04.270 --> 00:07:06.170
  • Get a vision and I'll talk to you later on."
  • 00:07:06.180 --> 00:07:09.190
  • Man, so money is not our security, God is.
  • 00:07:09.200 --> 00:07:16.130
  • Uncovering the spirit of mammon in your life
  • 00:07:16.140 --> 00:07:19.050
  • now becomes very important.
  • 00:07:19.060 --> 00:07:21.010
  • So how do I know if I'm operating under the
  • 00:07:21.020 --> 00:07:22.240
  • spirit of mammon?
  • 00:07:22.250 --> 00:07:24.040
  • When you do something wrong just to get the money,
  • 00:07:24.050 --> 00:07:27.040
  • that's motivated by the spirit of mammon.
  • 00:07:27.050 --> 00:07:31.050
  • What is it that you might be willing to do
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:35.180
  • if the price is right?
  • 00:07:35.190 --> 00:07:37.170
  • That's mammon. That's mammon.
  • 00:07:37.180 --> 00:07:41.160
  • If God told you to do a work and he had only had 100 people,
  • 00:07:41.170 --> 00:07:46.180
  • and somebody came and said, "We'll pay you a million dollars
  • 00:07:46.190 --> 00:07:49.240
  • a year if you go do that."
  • 00:07:49.250 --> 00:07:51.060
  • What? How?
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:52.210
  • What's the price for you?
  • 00:07:52.220 --> 00:07:54.040
  • What's the price that mammon can buy you out of obedience
  • 00:07:54.050 --> 00:07:58.060
  • into something else?
  • 00:07:58.070 --> 00:08:01.130
  • If you think that money can solve your problems instead of
  • 00:08:01.140 --> 00:08:05.180
  • God, if you think that money can solve your problems instead of
  • 00:08:05.190 --> 00:08:09.190
  • God, then you're being motivated and influenced
  • 00:08:09.200 --> 00:08:13.140
  • by the spirit of mammon.
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:15.140
  • If you--if you're thinking that money can solve your problems,
  • 00:08:15.150 --> 00:08:18.110
  • you're motivated by the spirit of mammon.
  • 00:08:18.120 --> 00:08:20.020
  • Listen to me carefully.
  • 00:08:20.030 --> 00:08:22.000
  • If you think money can solve your problems,
  • 00:08:22.010 --> 00:08:23.290
  • you're motivated by the spirit of mammon.
  • 00:08:24.000 --> 00:08:27.110
  • See, it may give you a temporary solution that may blow up in
  • 00:08:27.120 --> 00:08:31.050
  • your face a month later.
  • 00:08:31.060 --> 00:08:33.230
  • Uh-uh, that's not going to do it.
  • 00:08:33.240 --> 00:08:36.000
  • When you don't get married for love anymore but for the
  • 00:08:36.010 --> 00:08:40.120
  • security that is provided by money,
  • 00:08:40.130 --> 00:08:42.220
  • then you're being motivated by the spirit of mammon.
  • 00:08:42.230 --> 00:08:47.140
  • He can be ugly.
  • 00:08:47.150 --> 00:08:48.240
  • "I don't care. He got that money.
  • 00:08:48.250 --> 00:08:53.030
  • I'll figure out how to love him later."
  • 00:08:53.040 --> 00:08:56.180
  • You're motivated by the spirit of mammon.
  • 00:08:56.190 --> 00:09:02.220
  • You will use and exploit your friends if the price is right.
  • 00:09:02.230 --> 00:09:09.160
  • That's the spirit of mammon.
  • 00:09:09.170 --> 00:09:11.150
  • Oh, you don't mean to use them but,
  • 00:09:11.160 --> 00:09:13.250
  • you know, subconsciously you use them to get ahead.
  • 00:09:13.260 --> 00:09:17.280
  • You use them to get ahead.
  • 00:09:17.290 --> 00:09:20.000
  • That's the spirit of mammon.
  • 00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:22.020
  • You know, I don't know how many of you are familiar with this,
  • 00:09:22.030 --> 00:09:24.270
  • but people love--people who are in ministry love when you have
  • 00:09:24.280 --> 00:09:28.190
  • minister's conference because they show up at the conference
  • 00:09:28.200 --> 00:09:31.070
  • not to get ministered to but to work the room.
  • 00:09:31.080 --> 00:09:35.020
  • "Let me see if I can fill my schedule up."
  • 00:09:35.030 --> 00:09:38.230
  • That's motivated by the spirit of mammon,
  • 00:09:38.240 --> 00:09:41.070
  • motivated by the spirit of mammon.
  • 00:09:41.080 --> 00:09:42.290
  • "I am not interested--" You know what?
  • 00:09:43.000 --> 00:09:47.190
  • To ask for a place to preach, that's just something that goes
  • 00:09:47.200 --> 00:09:51.110
  • against everything we believe in.
  • 00:09:51.120 --> 00:09:53.200
  • To ask for a place to preach when I can go and get me a barn
  • 00:09:53.210 --> 00:09:57.220
  • somewhere and have me a meeting--I don't sit and wait on
  • 00:09:57.230 --> 00:10:01.120
  • somebody to get me--I don't sit in my office,
  • 00:10:01.130 --> 00:10:05.150
  • you know, "Are you finished with your yearly schedule yet?"
  • 00:10:05.160 --> 00:10:08.120
  • "No, I'm waiting on them invitations to come in."
  • 00:10:08.130 --> 00:10:10.250
  • I'm not waiting on invitations.
  • 00:10:10.260 --> 00:10:12.050
  • Jesus told me to go preach.
  • 00:10:12.060 --> 00:10:13.190
  • He didn't say, "Wait until you get invitations then go preach."
  • 00:10:13.200 --> 00:10:19.160
  • He said, "Go preach."
  • 00:10:19.170 --> 00:10:22.040
  • And so that's how we started. We started preaching.
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:24.090
  • I remember we didn't have no money,
  • 00:10:24.100 --> 00:10:27.040
  • but our first convention I believe,
  • 00:10:27.050 --> 00:10:29.050
  • correct me, was in Elyria, Ohio at a Holiday Inn.
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:33.250
  • Dave, is that right?
  • 00:10:33.260 --> 00:10:35.060
  • The Holiday Inn in Elyria, Ohio.
  • 00:10:35.070 --> 00:10:37.020
  • The room, what? Maybe 50 people.
  • 00:10:37.030 --> 00:10:43.010
  • It wasn't a big room 'cause we didn't expect--who
  • 00:10:43.020 --> 00:10:44.290
  • is going to come?
  • 00:10:45.000 --> 00:10:47.120
  • Who is going to come?
  • 00:10:47.130 --> 00:10:48.220
  • Nobody know me. Who is going to come?
  • 00:10:48.230 --> 00:10:50.140
  • We had a--that red--yeah, and we had all of the helpers.
  • 00:10:50.150 --> 00:10:58.200
  • We couldn't afford no--a budget.
  • 00:10:58.210 --> 00:11:02.080
  • No, we put all our money together to get the
  • 00:11:02.090 --> 00:11:04.050
  • biggest room they had.
  • 00:11:04.060 --> 00:11:06.210
  • And everybody came in, we scattered around,
  • 00:11:06.220 --> 00:11:08.290
  • people slept on the floor, and the guys were generous enough to
  • 00:11:09.000 --> 00:11:12.010
  • say, "Well, pastor, you got to preach.
  • 00:11:12.020 --> 00:11:13.250
  • You can go ahead and have the bed and we just--"
  • 00:11:13.260 --> 00:11:16.030
  • I mean, people were everywhere.
  • 00:11:16.040 --> 00:11:17.250
  • It was like a football team.
  • 00:11:17.260 --> 00:11:20.030
  • Just a bunch of dudes that--and we had a little thing then that
  • 00:11:20.040 --> 00:11:23.170
  • everybody had to get up--was it 5 or 5:30?
  • 00:11:23.180 --> 00:11:26.230
  • Five o'clock everybody praying.
  • 00:11:26.240 --> 00:11:28.280
  • Five o'clock--at 2 minutes to 5:00, somebody would--
  • 00:11:28.290 --> 00:11:32.070
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:11:32.080 --> 00:11:34.240
  • And by 5 o'clock, the whole room--
  • 00:11:34.250 --> 00:11:36.040
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:11:36.050 --> 00:11:39.130
  • That's how we did it. We were--we had no buffet.
  • 00:11:39.140 --> 00:11:41.220
  • We had no money. We had nothing but faith.
  • 00:11:41.230 --> 00:11:44.210
  • We had nothing but trust.
  • 00:11:44.220 --> 00:11:47.070
  • I mean, we had--do you understand what I mean?
  • 00:11:47.080 --> 00:11:49.090
  • We had nothing.
  • 00:11:49.100 --> 00:11:52.090
  • And we got there to that room and I got to tell you,
  • 00:11:52.100 --> 00:11:55.130
  • I was shocked.
  • 00:11:55.140 --> 00:11:57.150
  • I walked into this little room and it was jammed packed.
  • 00:11:57.160 --> 00:12:02.070
  • Yeah, granted 50 people, but hey,
  • 00:12:02.080 --> 00:12:04.230
  • at least we can say it was packed out.
  • 00:12:04.240 --> 00:12:09.060
  • It was packed out.
  • 00:12:09.070 --> 00:12:11.050
  • I was like--I mean, from here and then the first row was about
  • 00:12:11.060 --> 00:12:14.020
  • right there, and that's how it started.
  • 00:12:14.030 --> 00:12:17.220
  • That's how it started.
  • 00:12:17.230 --> 00:12:19.240
  • It was a bunch of guys who just believed,
  • 00:12:19.250 --> 00:12:21.280
  • and we believed that God would do what he said.
  • 00:12:21.290 --> 00:12:25.200
  • And we were walking together and they said,
  • 00:12:25.210 --> 00:12:28.000
  • "Let's--this guy really believe it.
  • 00:12:28.010 --> 00:12:29.150
  • Let's go and see if it works." Glory to God.
  • 00:12:29.160 --> 00:12:31.240
  • And it worked, and he began to prosper us.
  • 00:12:31.250 --> 00:12:34.060
  • We got a podium and they were able to get a sign,
  • 00:12:34.070 --> 00:12:39.280
  • and it was just amazing to see God do that.
  • 00:12:39.290 --> 00:12:43.140
  • Don't despise your small beginnings because God's getting
  • 00:12:43.150 --> 00:12:48.270
  • ready to take you somewhere with greatness
  • 00:12:48.280 --> 00:12:51.230
  • if you can depend on him.
  • 00:12:51.240 --> 00:12:54.180
  • Everything we need--now, we had to pay the hotel now.
  • 00:12:54.190 --> 00:12:58.130
  • Everything we needed showed up.
  • 00:12:58.140 --> 00:12:59.290
  • We did the same thing with our first tour.
  • 00:13:00.020 --> 00:13:03.190
  • We toured the world.
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:06.160
  • We got on an airplane--with the fuel as expensive as it was,
  • 00:13:06.170 --> 00:13:09.110
  • we got on an airplane.
  • 00:13:09.120 --> 00:13:11.010
  • "Well, how are you going to do the fuel?"
  • 00:13:11.020 --> 00:13:12.110
  • "God will take care of us."
  • 00:13:12.120 --> 00:13:16.160
  • Well, how much was the fuel on the first league?"
  • 00:13:16.170 --> 00:13:18.220
  • Aah, about $80.000."
  • 00:13:18.230 --> 00:13:21.270
  • "Okay, God is going to take care of us."
  • 00:13:21.280 --> 00:13:24.000
  • He did.
  • 00:13:24.010 --> 00:13:25.100
  • I'm telling you, God blessed us because we trusted him.
  • 00:13:25.110 --> 00:13:31.180
  • So, who's driving your money, mammon or God?
  • 00:13:31.190 --> 00:13:35.250
  • I mean, right now, today, who's driving your money?
  • 00:13:35.260 --> 00:13:38.230
  • Who's the chauffeur of your money?
  • 00:13:38.240 --> 00:13:40.190
  • Money is not the problem, the problem is
  • 00:13:40.200 --> 00:13:42.210
  • who you got driving it, see?
  • 00:13:42.220 --> 00:13:45.270
  • So money can't buy everything, amen?
  • 00:13:45.280 --> 00:13:50.060
  • I said money can't buy everything.
  • 00:13:50.070 --> 00:13:53.020
  • Somebody says, "In my universe it can."
  • 00:13:53.030 --> 00:13:57.010
  • You're in the wrong universe.
  • 00:13:57.020 --> 00:13:59.100
  • Money can buy a house, but it can never,
  • 00:13:59.110 --> 00:14:01.280
  • will never be able to buy a home.
  • 00:14:01.290 --> 00:14:07.050
  • Money can buy medicine, it can't buy healing.
  • 00:14:07.060 --> 00:14:13.230
  • Money can buy you a friend for the night,
  • 00:14:13.240 --> 00:14:16.100
  • but it can't buy you a relationship that will last
  • 00:14:16.110 --> 00:14:19.020
  • until Jesus comes.
  • 00:14:19.030 --> 00:14:21.270
  • Are you listening to me?
  • 00:14:21.280 --> 00:14:23.080
  • So the voice of mammon--mammon has a voice.
  • 00:14:23.090 --> 00:14:26.200
  • The voice of mammon speaks.
  • 00:14:26.210 --> 00:14:28.170
  • Let me share this with you and then I'll get started.
  • 00:14:28.180 --> 00:14:36.250
  • Mammon is always speaking to us trying to confuse us regarding
  • 00:14:36.260 --> 00:14:40.100
  • God's principles.
  • 00:14:40.110 --> 00:14:43.050
  • Mammon's ultimate objective is to try to get you to change your
  • 00:14:43.060 --> 00:14:46.150
  • teaching and doctoring against him.
  • 00:14:46.160 --> 00:14:52.040
  • The spirit of mammon talks to us,
  • 00:14:52.050 --> 00:14:53.290
  • especially when we are trying to give to the Lord.
  • 00:14:54.000 --> 00:14:58.150
  • The spirit of mammon talks to us,
  • 00:14:58.160 --> 00:14:59.280
  • especially when we're trying to give to the Lord.
  • 00:14:59.290 --> 00:15:03.280
  • I want you to look at Mark chapter 10,
  • 00:15:03.290 --> 00:15:05.200
  • verse 17 through 24.
  • 00:15:05.210 --> 00:15:09.270
  • The spirit of mammon, especially--anytime a situation
  • 00:15:09.280 --> 00:15:12.180
  • comes up where you're trying to give as God directs you to give
  • 00:15:12.190 --> 00:15:16.010
  • or trying to give to the Lord, mammon is always
  • 00:15:16.020 --> 00:15:19.220
  • trying to talk to you, why?
  • 00:15:19.230 --> 00:15:21.020
  • Because mammon knows--the spirit of mammon knows the way to be
  • 00:15:21.030 --> 00:15:25.030
  • free from that voice of mammon is by giving and you're showing
  • 00:15:25.040 --> 00:15:29.260
  • yourself faithful with money.
  • 00:15:29.270 --> 00:15:33.030
  • Now, look what he says in verse 17.
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:35.010
  • "And when he was gone forth unto the way,
  • 00:15:35.020 --> 00:15:36.250
  • there came one running and kneeled to him and asked him,
  • 00:15:36.260 --> 00:15:39.260
  • 'Good master,'" now watch what he asked,
  • 00:15:39.270 --> 00:15:42.210
  • "'what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?'"
  • 00:15:42.220 --> 00:15:48.080
  • So he wanted to know, what do I need to do
  • 00:15:48.090 --> 00:15:53.000
  • to inherit eternal life?
  • 00:15:53.010 --> 00:15:54.230
  • And unfortunately, there are lots of Christians today that
  • 00:15:54.240 --> 00:15:56.250
  • are still trying to find out what that they need to do
  • 00:15:56.260 --> 00:15:58.260
  • to inherit eternal life.
  • 00:15:58.270 --> 00:16:01.150
  • And so look what Jesus does in verse 18.
  • 00:16:01.160 --> 00:16:04.010
  • "And Jesus said unto him, 'Why callest thou me good?
  • 00:16:04.020 --> 00:16:07.090
  • There is none good but one, that is God.'"
  • 00:16:07.100 --> 00:16:11.090
  • Hear what he's saying?
  • 00:16:11.100 --> 00:16:12.190
  • "Why don't you call me God?
  • 00:16:12.200 --> 00:16:14.030
  • Why don't you call me God, indicating that you trust me?
  • 00:16:14.040 --> 00:16:18.160
  • See, you're trying to figure out how to get somewhere and the
  • 00:16:18.170 --> 00:16:21.170
  • real answer in the new covenant is going to be believe.
  • 00:16:21.180 --> 00:16:26.000
  • But you won't call me God if you keep calling me good,
  • 00:16:26.010 --> 00:16:28.030
  • and I'm telling you there's one that's good and that's God.
  • 00:16:28.040 --> 00:16:31.280
  • So call me God.
  • 00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:33.120
  • In fact, if you can call me God, don't call me good."
  • 00:16:33.130 --> 00:16:36.080
  • All right, now watch this.
  • 00:16:36.090 --> 00:16:38.200
  • "And Jesus said unto him, 'Why callest thou me good?
  • 00:16:38.210 --> 00:16:41.000
  • There is none good but one, that is God.'"
  • 00:16:41.010 --> 00:16:42.240
  • Verse 19, "Thou knowest the commandments: do not
  • 00:16:42.250 --> 00:16:46.290
  • commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not
  • 00:16:47.000 --> 00:16:49.280
  • bear false witness, defraud not, honor thy father and mother."
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:54.200
  • Now, watch this lie.
  • 00:16:54.210 --> 00:16:56.000
  • "And he answered and said unto him,
  • 00:16:56.010 --> 00:16:57.100
  • 'Master, all these have I observed from my youth.'"
  • 00:16:57.110 --> 00:17:03.130
  • Now, Jesus is getting ready to show him,
  • 00:17:03.140 --> 00:17:04.250
  • "All right, now first of all, I wouldn't have to be telling you
  • 00:17:04.260 --> 00:17:08.090
  • to keep all the commandments if you would just trust me as God,
  • 00:17:08.100 --> 00:17:11.050
  • but now I'm going to answer your question
  • 00:17:11.060 --> 00:17:14.080
  • based on how you ask it.
  • 00:17:14.090 --> 00:17:16.070
  • You want to know what to do, I'm going to show you what to do.
  • 00:17:16.080 --> 00:17:19.130
  • Keep the commandments."
  • 00:17:19.140 --> 00:17:21.040
  • And now watch this.
  • 00:17:21.050 --> 00:17:22.210
  • So Jesus is going to test him 'cause he says,
  • 00:17:22.220 --> 00:17:24.080
  • "I've done this from my youth," verse 21.
  • 00:17:24.090 --> 00:17:27.040
  • All right, notice the test is going to be around money.
  • 00:17:27.050 --> 00:17:32.030
  • Watch this.
  • 00:17:32.040 --> 00:17:33.130
  • "Jesus beholding him, loved him, and said unto him,
  • 00:17:33.140 --> 00:17:35.100
  • 'One thing thou lackest: go thy way,
  • 00:17:35.110 --> 00:17:40.100
  • sell whatsoever you have to sell,
  • 00:17:40.110 --> 00:17:44.040
  • convert it into money, then take it and give to the poor,
  • 00:17:44.050 --> 00:17:50.130
  • and thou shalt have treasure in heaven,
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:52.250
  • and come and take up the cross and follow me.'
  • 00:17:52.260 --> 00:17:55.250
  • Can you trust me enough to do this where your
  • 00:17:55.260 --> 00:17:59.090
  • money is concerned?"
  • 00:17:59.100 --> 00:18:01.280
  • Here's the test.
  • 00:18:01.290 --> 00:18:03.100
  • He is going to show you everything you need to know
  • 00:18:03.110 --> 00:18:05.070
  • about this guy who was peeping around,
  • 00:18:05.080 --> 00:18:08.030
  • acting like he was so sanctimonious,
  • 00:18:08.040 --> 00:18:10.070
  • lying that he kept all the laws, and now you're getting ready to
  • 00:18:10.080 --> 00:18:13.270
  • see that he's going to have something greater than God:
  • 00:18:13.280 --> 00:18:17.110
  • "Thy should never have no other God before me."
  • 00:18:17.120 --> 00:18:19.030
  • You're going to see that he does that.
  • 00:18:19.040 --> 00:18:20.130
  • Now, see how he responded to this because the test was,
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:25.270
  • let's see if you will trust me where money
  • 00:18:25.280 --> 00:18:29.050
  • management is concerned.
  • 00:18:29.060 --> 00:18:31.200
  • "Take your stuff, turn it into money,
  • 00:18:31.210 --> 00:18:33.020
  • and then do what I tell you to do with it.
  • 00:18:33.030 --> 00:18:34.280
  • Give to the poor."
  • 00:18:34.290 --> 00:18:37.020
  • "Who's running--who's doing the driving with your money?
  • 00:18:37.030 --> 00:18:39.080
  • Is it going to be mammon or is it going to be me?"
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:43.270
  • His response, "He was sad at that saying.
  • 00:18:43.280 --> 00:18:47.200
  • He went away." He was sad.
  • 00:18:47.210 --> 00:18:51.110
  • He went away. He was sad.
  • 00:18:51.120 --> 00:18:55.080
  • He went away grieved.
  • 00:18:55.090 --> 00:18:58.080
  • How many of you know grief is associated with loss?
  • 00:18:58.090 --> 00:19:01.130
  • He went away because he saw managing this money as God
  • 00:19:01.140 --> 00:19:05.270
  • instructed, he saw it as a loss rather than a gain.
  • 00:19:05.280 --> 00:19:11.050
  • And there's so many Christians today,
  • 00:19:11.060 --> 00:19:12.160
  • they see giving to the kingdom of God as a
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:15.200
  • loss rather than a gain.
  • 00:19:15.210 --> 00:19:17.290
  • Some of them would rather give to the stock market and
  • 00:19:18.000 --> 00:19:20.170
  • make--see that as a sure thing than to give
  • 00:19:20.180 --> 00:19:23.130
  • according to God's management.
  • 00:19:23.140 --> 00:19:24.230
  • And God says, "Now, how can the much come into your hands when
  • 00:19:24.240 --> 00:19:27.170
  • you can't even trust me where giving and
  • 00:19:27.180 --> 00:19:30.160
  • receiving is concerned?"
  • 00:19:30.170 --> 00:19:32.090
  • And you want to say you want to be healed.
  • 00:19:32.100 --> 00:19:33.280
  • You want to talk about how acknowledged you want to be.
  • 00:19:33.290 --> 00:19:35.080
  • You want to talk about the blessings you want to walk in.
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:36.180
  • And when the supernatural system,
  • 00:19:36.190 --> 00:19:37.280
  • he says, "You can't go away sad and grieved."
  • 00:19:37.290 --> 00:19:41.170
  • And it says--why?
  • 00:19:41.180 --> 00:19:42.290
  • Why did--why was he grieved?
  • 00:19:43.000 --> 00:19:44.090
  • "For he had great possessions."
  • 00:19:44.100 --> 00:19:45.190
  • I believe great possessions had him.
  • 00:19:45.200 --> 00:19:48.010
  • I believe mammon had him.
  • 00:19:48.020 --> 00:19:50.160
  • Now, Jesus gives a commentary on this in verse 23.
  • 00:19:50.170 --> 00:19:52.210
  • "And Jesus looked around about and he said unto his disciples,
  • 00:19:52.220 --> 00:19:56.180
  • 'How hardly shall they that have riches enter into
  • 00:19:56.190 --> 00:20:00.140
  • the kingdom of God?'"
  • 00:20:00.150 --> 00:20:01.240
  • Now, the disciples responded to this
  • 00:20:01.250 --> 00:20:04.280
  • because--listen to what he said.
  • 00:20:04.290 --> 00:20:06.120
  • He said as if he was saying the problem is riches,
  • 00:20:06.130 --> 00:20:10.210
  • but he comes back and he was very precise now.
  • 00:20:10.220 --> 00:20:13.030
  • In the next verse he said, "And the disciples
  • 00:20:13.040 --> 00:20:16.180
  • were astonished at his words."
  • 00:20:16.190 --> 00:20:19.000
  • Now, why would the disciples be astonished at what he just said?
  • 00:20:19.010 --> 00:20:22.280
  • What he just said was, it's going to be hard for somebody
  • 00:20:22.290 --> 00:20:25.170
  • who has money or riches to enter in the kingdom of God.
  • 00:20:25.180 --> 00:20:28.200
  • If the disciples were poor, they should have jumped up
  • 00:20:28.210 --> 00:20:31.100
  • celebrating, "Woo, we're on our way to heaven."
  • 00:20:31.110 --> 00:20:34.130
  • but the Bible says they were astonished at the
  • 00:20:34.140 --> 00:20:36.150
  • words that he spoke, why?
  • 00:20:36.160 --> 00:20:37.250
  • Look at his disciples. They had money.
  • 00:20:37.260 --> 00:20:42.240
  • "But Jesus answered again and saith unto them,
  • 00:20:42.250 --> 00:20:46.150
  • 'Children, how hard is it for them that,'" watch this,
  • 00:20:46.160 --> 00:20:49.270
  • "trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God?"
  • 00:20:49.280 --> 00:20:55.240
  • So he's saying--let me make--let me be clear.
  • 00:20:55.250 --> 00:20:58.270
  • The riches, the money is not the issue.
  • 00:20:58.280 --> 00:21:02.220
  • The issue is who's managing it, and if your trust is in money,
  • 00:21:02.230 --> 00:21:09.250
  • if your trust is in money--you know,
  • 00:21:09.260 --> 00:21:12.130
  • right here I'm thinking about a Scripture
  • 00:21:12.140 --> 00:21:15.060
  • that really will explain this.
  • 00:21:15.070 --> 00:21:16.160
  • Go to 1 Timothy chapter 6 and 10,
  • 00:21:16.170 --> 00:21:19.190
  • 1 Timothy chapter 6 and 10, and then we'll
  • 00:21:19.200 --> 00:21:24.010
  • come back to this one.
  • 00:21:24.020 --> 00:21:26.070
  • 1 Timothy 6 and 10.
  • 00:21:26.080 --> 00:21:28.120
  • I'm sure most of you have heard this Scripture.
  • 00:21:28.130 --> 00:21:31.010
  • "For the love of money is the root of all evil."
  • 00:21:31.020 --> 00:21:35.060
  • You've heard the narratives from the world
  • 00:21:35.070 --> 00:21:37.150
  • and from religious people.
  • 00:21:37.160 --> 00:21:39.030
  • What did they say here about this Scripture: money
  • 00:21:39.040 --> 00:21:41.220
  • is the root of all evil?
  • 00:21:41.230 --> 00:21:45.000
  • Have you heard that before?
  • 00:21:45.010 --> 00:21:46.100
  • Money is the root of all evil.
  • 00:21:46.110 --> 00:21:47.200
  • That's nowhere in the Bible, but people have taken the narrative
  • 00:21:47.210 --> 00:21:51.100
  • money is the root of all evil.
  • 00:21:51.110 --> 00:21:53.130
  • So if you have any or if you trying to get any or if you're
  • 00:21:53.140 --> 00:21:55.280
  • making money, remember now money is the root of all evil,
  • 00:21:55.290 --> 00:21:59.180
  • and I could never understand that.
  • 00:21:59.190 --> 00:22:01.000
  • Why are you saying money is the root of all evil and you got a
  • 00:22:01.010 --> 00:22:03.070
  • job out there trying to get some evil stuff?
  • 00:22:03.080 --> 00:22:07.280
  • If it's evil, it's evil for everybody.
  • 00:22:07.290 --> 00:22:12.060
  • So why is it that it's not evil until you get to a certain level
  • 00:22:12.070 --> 00:22:15.080
  • or a certain amount?
  • 00:22:15.090 --> 00:22:18.160
  • The truth about it is money is not evil or good.
  • 00:22:18.170 --> 00:22:23.000
  • It's based on what spirit's doing the driving,
  • 00:22:23.010 --> 00:22:26.110
  • and here's what he said.
  • 00:22:26.120 --> 00:22:27.210
  • "The love of money--" Love's a relational word.
  • 00:22:27.220 --> 00:22:30.030
  • "A wrong relationship with money is the root of all evil."
  • 00:22:30.040 --> 00:22:34.280
  • So what is a wrong relationship with money?
  • 00:22:34.290 --> 00:22:37.140
  • It is when you trust money more than you trust God,
  • 00:22:37.150 --> 00:22:43.260
  • and an individual that trusts money more than he trusts God is
  • 00:22:43.270 --> 00:22:47.150
  • an individual that is governed and influenced by mammon that's
  • 00:22:47.160 --> 00:22:52.080
  • driving him to trust stuff more than he trusts God.
  • 00:22:52.090 --> 00:22:56.080
  • So you see the money as your sufficient supply house,
  • 00:22:56.090 --> 00:23:01.180
  • and God is your supply house.
  • 00:23:01.190 --> 00:23:04.150
  • And to trust money more than you trust God,
  • 00:23:04.160 --> 00:23:07.270
  • it is a wrong relationship with money.
  • 00:23:07.280 --> 00:23:10.260
  • God did not give you money, the creation,
  • 00:23:10.270 --> 00:23:13.290
  • for you to trust it and let it govern your life,
  • 00:23:14.000 --> 00:23:19.170
  • but that's where a lot of people are and,
  • 00:23:19.180 --> 00:23:21.250
  • unfortunately, preachers are the same way.
  • 00:23:21.260 --> 00:23:24.210
  • A wrong relationship with money where you trust money more than
  • 00:23:24.220 --> 00:23:27.120
  • anything or, watch this--not only trust it,
  • 00:23:27.130 --> 00:23:30.230
  • but where you fear it or you fear to talk about it.
  • 00:23:30.240 --> 00:23:33.080
  • There's something wrong with a pastor who's pastored a church
  • 00:23:33.090 --> 00:23:36.160
  • for any length of time and has never taught a financial message
  • 00:23:36.170 --> 00:23:41.110
  • to his congregation to show them how to have
  • 00:23:41.120 --> 00:23:44.130
  • a right relationship with money.
  • 00:23:44.140 --> 00:23:46.030
  • How else are you supposed to have a right relationship with
  • 00:23:46.040 --> 00:23:48.160
  • money unless somebody teaches you
  • 00:23:48.170 --> 00:23:50.000
  • the right relationship with money?
  • 00:23:50.010 --> 00:23:52.180
  • I've been preaching on the gospel for maybe going on
  • 00:23:52.190 --> 00:23:55.030
  • 10 years and, you know, the same narrative is out there?
  • 00:23:55.040 --> 00:23:58.230
  • "Creflo Dollar, all he talk about is money."
  • 00:23:58.240 --> 00:24:06.070
  • You just told me everything I need to know about you.
  • 00:24:06.080 --> 00:24:08.240
  • You don't listen to me.
  • 00:24:08.250 --> 00:24:18.250
  • But can God trust you to even impart the right relationship
  • 00:24:19.000 --> 00:24:23.100
  • with finances so people can know how to trust God where
  • 00:24:23.110 --> 00:24:27.020
  • their finances are concerned?
  • 00:24:27.030 --> 00:24:28.160
  • announcer: The condition of a person's heart is often revealed
  • 00:24:28.290 --> 00:24:30.240
  • by how they handle money, but the spirit of mammon tries to
  • 00:24:30.250 --> 00:24:33.280
  • use this tool to destroy our trust in God.
  • 00:24:33.290 --> 00:24:36.190
