  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: THE LAW
  • 00:00:11.040 --> 00:00:14.040
  • OF FIRST FRUITS IS A GIANT STEP
  • 00:00:14.040 --> 00:00:16.130
  • IN CLIMBING THE STAIRWAY
  • 00:00:16.130 --> 00:00:17.220
  • TO THE STARS OF SUCCESS

  • WHEN YOU OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:00:22.070 --> 00:00:23.200

  • ABUNDANTLY,

  • ABOVE WHAT YOU CAN ASK
  • 00:00:31.130 --> 00:00:32.190
  • OR IMAGINE.
  • 00:00:32.190 --> 00:00:34.070
  • IF YOU IGNORE THE LAW
  • 00:00:34.070 --> 00:00:35.250
  • OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:00:35.250 --> 00:00:37.240
  • GOD SAYS YOUR LACK
  • 00:00:37.240 --> 00:00:39.110

  • AND GIVE DIVINE EVIDENCE
  • 00:00:54.110 --> 00:00:56.140

  • THE QUALITY OF YOUR PROSPERITY
  • 00:01:02.080 --> 00:01:04.150
  • IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:01:04.150 --> 00:01:05.250
  • LET'S READ EXODUS 34:22
  • 00:01:05.250 --> 00:01:08.220
  • AND FOLLOWING.

  • FIRST FRUITS OF WHEAT HARVEST
  • 00:01:13.020 --> 00:01:15.020
  • AND THE FEAST OF INGATHERING
  • 00:01:15.020 --> 00:01:17.030
  • AT THE YEAR'S END.
  • 00:01:17.030 --> 00:01:18.240
  • THREE TIMES IN THE YEAR,

  • BEFORE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:01:22.120 --> 00:01:25.090
  • FOR I WILL CAST OUT THE NATIONS
  • 00:01:25.090 --> 00:01:27.040
  • BEFORE YOU,
  • 00:01:27.040 --> 00:01:28.130
  • AND ENLARGE YOUR BORDERS.
  • 00:01:28.130 --> 00:01:30.180
  • NEITHER WILL ANY MAN COVET

  • NOR SHALL THE SACRIFICE

  • UNTIL MORNING.
  • 00:01:46.270 --> 00:01:48.090
  • THE FIRST OF THE FIRST FRUITS

  • OF YOUR LAND,

  • YOU SHALL BRING TO THE HOUSE

  • OF THE LORD YOUR GOD."
  • 00:01:53.160 --> 00:01:55.160
  • FATHER GOD,
  • 00:01:55.160 --> 00:01:56.150
  • THANK YOU FOR THE WORD
  • 00:01:56.150 --> 00:01:59.080
  • THAT IS A LIGHT UNTO OUR FEET
  • 00:01:59.080 --> 00:02:02.030
  • AND A LIGHT UNTO OUR PATHWAY.
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:04.280
  • LET US HEAR IT.
  • 00:02:04.280 --> 00:02:07.020
  • LET US EXPERIENCE IT.
  • 00:02:07.020 --> 00:02:09.150
  • LET US PRACTICE IT.
  • 00:02:09.150 --> 00:02:11.140
  • FOR IT IS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:02:11.140 --> 00:02:13.150
  • FOR THIS CONGREGATION
  • 00:02:13.150 --> 00:02:15.200
  • AND FOR RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE
  • 00:02:15.200 --> 00:02:17.250
  • WHO DESIRE TO LIVE
  • 00:02:17.250 --> 00:02:19.020
  • ON THE ECONOMY OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:02:19.020 --> 00:02:21.020
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:02:21.020 --> 00:02:23.030
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:24.180
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:02:24.180 --> 00:02:25.240
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:02:25.240 --> 00:02:26.220
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:02:26.220 --> 00:02:28.100
  • LET'S BEGIN WITH THE BASICS
  • 00:02:28.100 --> 00:02:30.140
  • THAT GOD DEMANDS TO BE FIRST.
  • 00:02:32.000 --> 00:02:35.000
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:02:35.000 --> 00:02:35.270
  • "SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM
  • 00:02:35.270 --> 00:02:36.270
  • OF GOD
  • 00:02:36.270 --> 00:02:38.200
  • AND ALL OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:02:38.200 --> 00:02:41.030
  • AND ALL OF THESE THINGS SHALL
  • 00:02:41.030 --> 00:02:42.260
  • BE ADDED UNTO YOU."
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:44.260
  • HEAR THAT ONE PHRASE,
  • 00:02:44.260 --> 00:02:46.250
  • "ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:49.200
  • SHALL BE ADDED,"
  • 00:02:49.200 --> 00:02:50.290
  • BECAUSE YOU SEEK FIRST
  • 00:02:50.290 --> 00:02:53.000
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:02:53.000 --> 00:02:54.010
  • WHY DO WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY?
  • 00:02:54.010 --> 00:02:56.070
  • WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY
  • 00:02:56.070 --> 00:02:57.070
  • BECAUSE JESUS ROSE
  • 00:02:57.070 --> 00:02:58.110
  • FROM THE DEAD ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:02:58.110 --> 00:03:00.060
  • SUNDAY IS THE FIRST DAY
  • 00:03:00.060 --> 00:03:01.140
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:01.140 --> 00:03:02.170
  • IT IS THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:03:02.170 --> 00:03:04.120
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:04.120 --> 00:03:05.190
  • LISTEN.
  • 00:03:05.190 --> 00:03:06.230
  • YOUR SUCCESS FOR THE WEEK
  • 00:03:06.230 --> 00:03:09.020
  • BEGINS ON SUNDAY BY HONORING
  • 00:03:09.170 --> 00:03:12.170
  • THE LORD AS THE LORD
  • 00:03:12.170 --> 00:03:13.230
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:13.230 --> 00:03:15.060
  • THE FIRST FRUIT SANCTIFIES
  • 00:03:16.000 --> 00:03:19.000
  • THE FOLLOWING FRUIT.
  • 00:03:19.000 --> 00:03:20.180
  • PUTTING GOD FIRST IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:03:20.180 --> 00:03:22.250
  • ESTABLISHES HIS LORDSHIP.
  • 00:03:22.250 --> 00:03:25.130
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:03:25.130 --> 00:03:27.030
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:03:27.030 --> 00:03:28.220
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD,
  • 00:03:28.220 --> 00:03:30.020
  • THERE IS NO BLESSING,
  • 00:03:30.020 --> 00:03:31.150
  • THERE IS NO FAVOR,
  • 00:03:31.150 --> 00:03:32.280
  • THERE IS NO PROSPERITY;
  • 00:03:32.280 --> 00:03:34.260
  • AND YOU LIVE,
  • 00:03:34.260 --> 00:03:36.110
  • ACCORDING TO MALACHI,
  • 00:03:36.110 --> 00:03:37.200
  • UNDER A CURSE.
  • 00:03:37.200 --> 00:03:39.110
  • C.S. LEWIS SAYS,
  • 00:03:39.110 --> 00:03:40.140
  • "WHEN FIRST THINGS ARE PUT
  • 00:03:40.140 --> 00:03:41.220
  • FIRST,
  • 00:03:41.220 --> 00:03:42.230
  • SECOND THINGS BEGIN
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:44.150
  • TO INCREASE."
  • 00:03:44.150 --> 00:03:45.260
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN
  • 00:03:45.260 --> 00:03:46.150
  • TO BE FIRST?
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:47.240
  • FIRST IS PRECEDING ALL OTHERS
  • 00:03:47.240 --> 00:03:50.150
  • IN TIME IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE.
  • 00:03:51.260 --> 00:03:54.260
  • IF YOU GO OUT AND RUN A RACE
  • 00:03:54.260 --> 00:03:56.250
  • BY YOURSELF,
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:03:58.130
  • YOU COME IN FIRST,
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:04:00.160
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS NOBODY ELSE
  • 00:04:00.160 --> 00:04:01.260
  • RUNNING AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:04:01.260 --> 00:04:04.000
  • SO IF YOU REALLY ARE
  • 00:04:04.000 --> 00:04:05.000
  • NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:04:05.000 --> 00:04:06.000
  • THERE HAS TO BE A SEQUENCE
  • 00:04:06.000 --> 00:04:07.140
  • OF SOMEBODY BEHIND YOU
  • 00:04:07.140 --> 00:04:09.260
  • BEFORE YOU CAN MAKE
  • 00:04:09.260 --> 00:04:10.250
  • THAT DECLARATION.
  • 00:04:10.250 --> 00:04:12.120
  • FIRST DOES NOT MEAN NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:14.090
  • IT DOES NOT MEAN THE ONLY ONE.
  • 00:04:14.090 --> 00:04:16.260
  • NOTHING CAN BE FIRST UNLESS
  • 00:04:16.260 --> 00:04:18.210
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE TO BE
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:20.170
  • FIRST OF.
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:22.070
  • FIRST FRUITS IS THE OFFERING
  • 00:04:22.070 --> 00:04:24.090
  • OF THE FIRST GRAIN HARVESTED
  • 00:04:24.090 --> 00:04:25.280
  • IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:25.280 --> 00:04:27.120
  • IF YOU DID NOT BRING YOUR FIRST
  • 00:04:27.120 --> 00:04:28.260
  • FRUITS TO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:04:28.260 --> 00:04:31.250
  • GOD INSTRUCTED ISRAEL THAT
  • 00:04:31.250 --> 00:04:34.160
  • THERE WOULD BE NO ADDITIONAL
  • 00:04:34.160 --> 00:04:36.040
  • FRUIT FOR THE HARVEST;
  • 00:04:36.040 --> 00:04:38.080
  • THEREFORE,
  • 00:04:38.080 --> 00:04:40.180
  • WHENEVER YOU AS A FARMER,
  • 00:04:40.180 --> 00:04:42.240
  • IN THE TIME OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:04:42.240 --> 00:04:44.250
  • DID NOT HAVE THE BLESSINGS
  • 00:04:44.250 --> 00:04:45.270
  • OF GOD BECAUSE YOU REFUSED
  • 00:04:45.270 --> 00:04:48.210
  • TO BRING THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:04:48.210 --> 00:04:49.250
  • TO THE HOUSE OF GOD,
  • 00:04:49.250 --> 00:04:51.170
  • YOU WERE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:04:51.170 --> 00:04:53.150
  • GOD IS THE LORD OF ALL
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:54.270
  • OR HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:04:54.270 --> 00:04:57.030
  • GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:04:57.030 --> 00:04:58.140
  • AND PLACED THEM IN THE PARADISE
  • 00:04:58.140 --> 00:05:00.130
  • OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:02.050
  • ADAM WENT TO SLEEP
  • 00:05:02.050 --> 00:05:04.000
  • AND HE WOKE UP MARRIED.
  • 00:05:04.000 --> 00:05:05.270
  • IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE AN INSOMNIAC
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:07.070
  • OUT OF YOU.
  • 00:05:07.070 --> 00:05:08.270
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:08.270 --> 00:05:09.140
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO WORK
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:10.090
  • 60 HOURS A WEEK TO GAIN.
  • 00:05:10.090 --> 00:05:13.090
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO FIGHT
  • 00:05:13.090 --> 00:05:15.040
  • THE TRAFFIC GOING TO WORK
  • 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:17.010
  • AND FROM WORK,
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:18.140
  • THE SMOG,
  • 00:05:18.140 --> 00:05:19.080
  • THE IRS,
  • 00:05:19.080 --> 00:05:20.170
  • AND THE INCESSANT RINGING
  • 00:05:20.170 --> 00:05:23.010
  • OF A CELL PHONE.
  • 00:05:23.010 --> 00:05:24.230
  • I'VE OFTEN SAID,
  • 00:05:24.230 --> 00:05:25.190
  • "IF I WAKE UP IN ETERNITY
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:26.280
  • AND HEAR A PHONE RING,
  • 00:05:26.280 --> 00:05:28.070
  • I KNOW I DIED AND WENT TO HELL."
  • 00:05:28.070 --> 00:05:31.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:31.060 --> 00:05:31.280
  • GOD GAVE ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:05:31.280 --> 00:05:33.100
  • ONE COMMAND,
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:34.210
  • "LEAVE THE FRUIT ON THE TREE
  • 00:05:34.210 --> 00:05:36.190
  • OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD
  • 00:05:36.190 --> 00:05:37.160
  • AND EVIL ALONE;
  • 00:05:37.160 --> 00:05:39.010
  • IT IS FORBIDDEN FRUIT."
  • 00:05:39.010 --> 00:05:41.090
  • DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:43.290
  • WHY DID GOD CREATE THAT TREE?
  • 00:05:43.290 --> 00:05:46.070
  • THE ANSWER IS TO SEE IF ADAM
  • 00:05:46.070 --> 00:05:48.080
  • AND EVE WOULD PUT HIM FIRST
  • 00:05:48.080 --> 00:05:50.040
  • WHENEVER SATAN CAME
  • 00:05:50.040 --> 00:05:51.050
  • TO TEMPT THEM,
  • 00:05:51.050 --> 00:05:52.120
  • BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT TEMPTATION
  • 00:05:52.120 --> 00:05:53.240
  • WAS COMING.
  • 00:05:53.240 --> 00:05:55.170
  • GOD WANTED TO SEE IF THEY WOULD
  • 00:05:55.170 --> 00:05:57.030
  • PUT THE THEIR WILL
  • 00:05:57.030 --> 00:05:58.240
  • ABOVE HIS WILL.
  • 00:05:58.240 --> 00:06:00.290
  • GET THAT PHRASE.
  • 00:06:00.290 --> 00:06:02.280
  • WHEN YOUR DESIRES,
  • 00:06:02.280 --> 00:06:04.190
  • YOUR PLANS,
  • 00:06:04.190 --> 00:06:05.290
  • YOUR IDEAS,
  • 00:06:05.290 --> 00:06:07.180
  • BECOME MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU
  • 00:06:07.180 --> 00:06:09.060
  • THAN GOD'S PLAN,
  • 00:06:09.060 --> 00:06:11.010
  • YOU HAVE ADOPTED THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:06:11.010 --> 00:06:12.210
  • OF LUCIFER.
  • 00:06:12.210 --> 00:06:14.210
  • LUCIFER CHALLENGED GOD.
  • 00:06:14.210 --> 00:06:17.200
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:18.290
  • "I WILL ASCEND TO THE HILL
  • 00:06:18.290 --> 00:06:20.070
  • OF GOD, I WILL BE LIKE GOD,
  • 00:06:20.070 --> 00:06:22.030
  • I WILL, I WILL, I WILL..."
  • 00:06:22.030 --> 00:06:24.090
  • THOSE FIVE "I WILL'S"
  • 00:06:24.090 --> 00:06:25.170
  • ARE IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH.
  • 00:06:25.170 --> 00:06:27.150
  • THE FACT IS YOU CAN HAVE
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:28.250
  • THE ATTITUDE OF LUCIFER
  • 00:06:28.250 --> 00:06:30.150
  • AND CONFESS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:06:30.240 --> 00:06:33.240
  • WHEN YOUR WILL BECOMES GREATER
  • 00:06:33.240 --> 00:06:36.120
  • THAN GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:06:36.120 --> 00:06:37.260
  • YOU HAVE AN IDOLATRY PROBLEM.
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:40.070
  • WHEN JESUS AND THE 12 DISCIPLES
  • 00:06:40.070 --> 00:06:42.140
  • WERE REJECTED
  • 00:06:42.140 --> 00:06:43.070
  • BY THE SAMARITANS,
  • 00:06:43.070 --> 00:06:44.250
  • JAMES AND JOHN CAME TO JESUS
  • 00:06:45.260 --> 00:06:48.260
  • AND ASKED PERMISSION FROM JESUS
  • 00:06:48.260 --> 00:06:50.130
  • TO CALL FIRE DOWN ON THOSE
  • 00:06:50.130 --> 00:06:53.050
  • PEOPLE THAT WOULDN'T
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.010
  • ACCEPT THEM.
  • 00:06:54.010 --> 00:06:55.110
  • BURN THEM UP!
  • 00:06:55.110 --> 00:06:57.170
  • JESUS LOOKED AT THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:06:57.170 --> 00:07:00.030
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:07:00.030 --> 00:07:00.240
  • ASKING.
  • 00:07:00.240 --> 00:07:02.170
  • "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT MANNER
  • 00:07:02.170 --> 00:07:03.230
  • OF SPIRIT YOU'RE OF,"
  • 00:07:03.230 --> 00:07:05.010
  • LUKE 9:55.
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:07.180
  • SAINT PETER HAD LUCIFER'S
  • 00:07:07.180 --> 00:07:08.220
  • ATTITUDE.
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:09.110
  • PETER SAID TO JESUS,
  • 00:07:09.110 --> 00:07:10.220
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:10.220 --> 00:07:11.150
  • TO THE CROSS."
  • 00:07:11.150 --> 00:07:13.020
  • WHEN THE ROMAN SOLDIERS
  • 00:07:13.020 --> 00:07:14.090
  • IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
  • 00:07:14.090 --> 00:07:16.230
  • THREATENED TO TAKE HIM,
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:18.180
  • PETER SAID,
  • 00:07:18.180 --> 00:07:19.050
  • "WE'LL TAKE UP SWORDS
  • 00:07:19.050 --> 00:07:20.080
  • AND WE'LL DEFEND YOU."
  • 00:07:20.080 --> 00:07:22.110
  • JESUS LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:07:22.110 --> 00:07:23.190
  • "GET BEHIND ME SATAN."
  • 00:07:23.190 --> 00:07:25.030
  • WHY?
  • 00:07:25.030 --> 00:07:26.080
  • BECAUSE THE WHOLE PURPOSE
  • 00:07:26.080 --> 00:07:27.160
  • FOR CHRIST COMING INTO THE EARTH
  • 00:07:27.160 --> 00:07:30.030
  • WAS TO DIE ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:07:30.030 --> 00:07:32.090
  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION SAYS,
  • 00:07:32.090 --> 00:07:33.200
  • "FROM THE FOUNDATIONS
  • 00:07:33.200 --> 00:07:34.220
  • OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:07:34.220 --> 00:07:35.240
  • HE WAS PREDESTINED TO DIE AS
  • 00:07:36.010 --> 00:07:39.010
  • THE LAMB OF GOD THAT TOOK AWAY
  • 00:07:39.010 --> 00:07:41.050
  • THE SINS OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:07:41.050 --> 00:07:43.000
  • AND WHEN PETER WAS SAYING,
  • 00:07:43.000 --> 00:07:44.040
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:44.040 --> 00:07:45.010
  • TO THE CROSS,"
  • 00:07:45.010 --> 00:07:46.120
  • THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT SATAN
  • 00:07:46.120 --> 00:07:48.060
  • DID NOT WANT TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:48.060 --> 00:07:50.090
  • AND JESUS LOOKED AT
  • 00:07:50.090 --> 00:07:51.090
  • HIS FOLLOWER AND SAID,
  • 00:07:51.090 --> 00:07:53.080
  • "YOU ARE SPEAKING THE MESSAGE
  • 00:07:53.150 --> 00:07:56.150
  • OF SATAN IN MY EAR;
  • 00:07:56.150 --> 00:07:58.200
  • GET BEHIND ME."
  • 00:07:58.200 --> 00:08:00.030
  • TRANSLATION: SHUT UP.
  • 00:08:00.200 --> 00:08:03.200
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:04.280 --> 00:08:07.280
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:08:07.280 --> 00:08:09.090
  • IF YOUR ATTITUDE IS CONTROLLED
  • 00:08:09.090 --> 00:08:11.150
  • BY SATAN?
  • 00:08:11.150 --> 00:08:12.210
  • THE ANSWER IS,
  • 00:08:12.210 --> 00:08:13.250
  • WHEN YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD
  • 00:08:13.250 --> 00:08:15.160
  • FIRST.
  • 00:08:15.160 --> 00:08:16.190
  • WHEN YOUR WILL
  • 00:08:16.190 --> 00:08:17.170
  • IS NOT GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:08:17.270 --> 00:08:20.270
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU ARE
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:21.260
  • IN A DANGEROUS TERRITORY.
  • 00:08:22.010 --> 00:08:25.010
  • SATAN DID NOT PUT GOD FIRST.
  • 00:08:25.010 --> 00:08:27.070
  • AND EVEN THOUGH HE WAS
  • 00:08:27.070 --> 00:08:28.040
  • AN ARCHANGEL,
  • 00:08:28.040 --> 00:08:29.230
  • ONE OF THE TOP THREE IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:08:29.230 --> 00:08:31.180
  • GOD KICKED HIM OUT OF HEAVEN
  • 00:08:31.180 --> 00:08:33.100
  • AND HE BECAME THE DEVIL.
  • 00:08:33.100 --> 00:08:35.100
  • WHY?
  • 00:08:35.100 --> 00:08:36.040
  • BECAUSE HE WORSHIPED HIS WILL.
  • 00:08:36.040 --> 00:08:38.040
  • ADAM AND EVE HAD ONE THING
  • 00:08:38.040 --> 00:08:40.030
  • TO DO AND THEY BLEW THAT,
  • 00:08:40.030 --> 00:08:42.270
  • AND GOD KICKED THEM OUT
  • 00:08:42.270 --> 00:08:43.290
  • OF THE GARDEN FOR NOT PUTTING
  • 00:08:43.290 --> 00:08:46.080
  • HIS WILL FIRST.
  • 00:08:46.080 --> 00:08:47.280
  • EVE WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:47.280 --> 00:08:49.150
  • ADAM WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:49.150 --> 00:08:51.040
  • THE GROUND WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:52.200
  • "THORNS AND THISTLES
  • 00:08:52.200 --> 00:08:54.000
  • SHALL IT GROW."
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:55.030
  • AND THAT CURSE LIVES
  • 00:08:55.030 --> 00:08:56.200
  • UNTIL THIS DAY!
  • 00:08:56.200 --> 00:08:59.040
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:08:59.040 --> 00:09:01.080
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:09:01.080 --> 00:09:02.160
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD OF ALL,
  • 00:09:02.160 --> 00:09:04.270
  • THEN HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:09:04.270 --> 00:09:07.190
  • CAN I GET A WITNESS TO THAT?
  • 00:09:07.200 --> 00:09:10.200
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:11.170 --> 00:09:14.170
  • NOW LET'S LOOK AT ABRAHAM.
  • 00:09:14.170 --> 00:09:16.050
  • WHY DID GOD CHOOSE ABRAHAM
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:17.170
  • TO BE THE FATHER OF ALL
  • 00:09:17.170 --> 00:09:18.150
  • WHO BELIEVE?
  • 00:09:18.150 --> 00:09:20.080
  • WHY IS IT THAT THOUSANDS
  • 00:09:20.080 --> 00:09:21.150
  • OF YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH,
  • 00:09:21.150 --> 00:09:23.040
  • PEOPLE STILL KNOW HIM BETTER
  • 00:09:23.040 --> 00:09:25.030
  • THAN MOST ANY PERSON
  • 00:09:25.030 --> 00:09:25.270
  • ON THE EARTH?
  • 00:09:25.270 --> 00:09:27.140
  • BECAUSE HE UNDERSTOOD THE LAW
  • 00:09:27.140 --> 00:09:28.250
  • OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:09:28.250 --> 00:09:30.100
  • WHEN ABRAHAM TIED ISAAC
  • 00:09:30.100 --> 00:09:32.010
  • AND PLACED HIM ON THE ALTAR
  • 00:09:32.010 --> 00:09:33.230
  • TO SACRIFICE HIM TO GOD,
  • 00:09:33.230 --> 00:09:35.280
  • HE LIFTED HIS DAGGER,
  • 00:09:35.280 --> 00:09:37.030
  • AND THE ANGEL OF GOD STOPPED
  • 00:09:37.030 --> 00:09:38.120
  • HIM.
  • 00:09:38.120 --> 00:09:39.170
  • AND THEN THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:09:39.170 --> 00:09:40.170
  • "I KNOW THAT YOU FEAR GOD,"
  • 00:09:40.170 --> 00:09:42.090
  • GENESIS 22:12.
  • 00:09:42.090 --> 00:09:44.100

  • THIS VERSE THIS WAY;
  • 00:09:45.130 --> 00:09:46.210
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:46.210 --> 00:09:47.190
  • "I KNOW THAT GOD IS FIRST
  • 00:09:47.190 --> 00:09:49.180
  • IN YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:09:49.180 --> 00:09:51.160
  • ONLY WHEN YOU PUT GOD FIRST
  • 00:09:51.160 --> 00:09:53.290
  • IS GOD ABLE TO PROVIDE
  • 00:09:53.290 --> 00:09:56.000
  • WHAT HE PROMISES.
  • 00:09:56.000 --> 00:09:58.080

  • 00:11:26.010 --> 00:11:28.120

  • 00:11:43.180 --> 00:11:46.020
  • WAS A REFLECTION
  • 00:11:46.020 --> 00:11:47.210
  • OF YOUR FINANCIAL ABILITY.
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:49.270
  • BUT THIS WAS THE COMMAND
  • 00:11:49.270 --> 00:11:51.070
  • TO EVERY PERSON IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:11:51.070 --> 00:11:53.110
  • "DON'T COME EMPTY HANDED
  • 00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:56.050
  • BEFORE THE LORD."
  • 00:11:56.050 --> 00:11:58.120
  • IF ALL YOU CAN AFFORD IS A BIRD,
  • 00:11:58.260 --> 00:12:01.280
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:12:01.280 --> 00:12:04.060
  • IF YOU CAN AFFORD A THOUSAND
  • 00:12:04.060 --> 00:12:05.250
  • OXEN AS SOLOMON,
  • 00:12:05.250 --> 00:12:07.210
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:12:07.210 --> 00:12:09.080
  • BUT DO NOT COME EMPTY HANDED.
  • 00:12:09.190 --> 00:12:12.190
  • IN THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:12:12.190 --> 00:12:13.240
  • EVERYTHING IS EITHER SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:13.240 --> 00:12:16.010
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:16.010 --> 00:12:16.260
  • GET THOSE TWO WORDS,
  • 00:12:16.260 --> 00:12:18.200
  • "SACRIFICED" OR "REDEEMED."
  • 00:12:18.200 --> 00:12:21.190
  • EXODUS 13:2,
  • 00:12:21.190 --> 00:12:23.040
  • "CONSECRATE TO ME
  • 00:12:23.040 --> 00:12:24.120
  • ALL THE FIRSTBORN.
  • 00:12:24.120 --> 00:12:26.070
  • WHATEVER OPENS THE WOMB
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:27.180
  • AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:12:27.180 --> 00:12:28.280
  • BOTH OF MEN AND BEASTS,
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:30.120
  • IT IS MINE."
  • 00:12:30.120 --> 00:12:32.220
  • I'M READING THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:32.220 --> 00:12:34.090
  • ACCORDING TO OLD TESTAMENT LAW,
  • 00:12:34.090 --> 00:12:36.080
  • THE FIRSTBORN WAS TO BE EITHER
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:38.010
  • SACRIFICED OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:38.010 --> 00:12:39.260
  • THERE WAS NO THIRD OPTION.
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:41.290
  • FAST FORWARD
  • 00:12:41.290 --> 00:12:42.200
  • TO THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:12:42.200 --> 00:12:44.010
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST MEETS
  • 00:12:44.010 --> 00:12:46.050
  • JESUS CHRIST ON THE BANKS
  • 00:12:46.050 --> 00:12:47.220
  • OF THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:49.110
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:12:49.110 --> 00:12:50.020
  • "BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
  • 00:12:50.020 --> 00:12:51.110
  • THAT TAKES AWAY THE SIN
  • 00:12:51.110 --> 00:12:52.180
  • OF THE WORLD,"
  • 00:12:52.180 --> 00:12:53.240
  • JOHN 1:29.
  • 00:12:53.240 --> 00:12:55.200
  • JESUS WAS GOD'S ONLY
  • 00:12:55.200 --> 00:12:57.010
  • BEGOTTEN SON.
  • 00:12:57.010 --> 00:12:58.220
  • HE HAD TO BE SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:58.220 --> 00:13:01.020
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:13:01.020 --> 00:13:02.150
  • GOD ALLOWED HIS SON,
  • 00:13:02.150 --> 00:13:04.140
  • A MALE LAMB,
  • 00:13:04.140 --> 00:13:05.260
  • WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE,
  • 00:13:05.260 --> 00:13:07.230
  • TO BE SACRIFICED FOR THE SINS
  • 00:13:07.230 --> 00:13:09.200
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:13:09.200 --> 00:13:10.290
  • THE POINT IS,
  • 00:13:10.290 --> 00:13:12.010
  • IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT CHRIST AS
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:14.140
  • YOUR SUBSTITUTE ON THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:14.140 --> 00:13:17.010
  • YOU MUST DIE FOR YOUR SIN,
  • 00:13:18.010 --> 00:13:21.010
  • BECAUSE THE WAGES OF SIN IS
  • 00:13:21.010 --> 00:13:23.240
  • DEATH.
  • 00:13:23.240 --> 00:13:25.070
  • JESUS PAID THE BILL FOR US
  • 00:13:25.070 --> 00:13:27.280
  • TO BE REDEEMED FROM THE POWER
  • 00:13:27.280 --> 00:13:30.070
  • OF SIN AND DARKNESS.
  • 00:13:30.070 --> 00:13:31.280
  • BECAUSE OF THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:31.280 --> 00:13:33.180
  • WE ARE FREE,
  • 00:13:33.180 --> 00:13:34.250
  • WE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 00:13:34.250 --> 00:13:36.150
  • WE HAVE HEALING FROM SICKNESS
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:38.120
  • AND DISEASE.
  • 00:13:38.120 --> 00:13:39.220
  • THERE IS VICTORY OVER
  • 00:13:39.220 --> 00:13:41.080
  • THE WORLD, THE FLESH,
  • 00:13:41.080 --> 00:13:42.180
  • AND THE DEVIL.
  • 00:13:42.180 --> 00:13:43.200
  • THERE'S THE PROSPERITY
  • 00:13:43.200 --> 00:13:45.130
  • OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:13:45.130 --> 00:13:46.200
  • THE PEACE OF GOD THAT SURPASSES
  • 00:13:46.200 --> 00:13:49.010
  • UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:13:49.010 --> 00:13:50.120
  • HALLELUJAH FOR THE CROSS!
  • 00:13:50.120 --> 00:13:52.090
  • GIVE HIM PRAISE AND GLORY
  • 00:13:52.090 --> 00:13:53.270
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:13:53.270 --> 00:13:56.050
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:57.100 --> 00:14:00.120
  • CONCERNING FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:14:00.120 --> 00:14:02.050
  • WHATEVER IS DONE
  • 00:14:02.050 --> 00:14:03.090
  • WITH FIRST FRUITS DETERMINES
  • 00:14:03.090 --> 00:14:05.280
  • WHAT HAPPENS TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:14:05.280 --> 00:14:08.180
  • SO FOLLOW THIS;
  • 00:14:08.180 --> 00:14:10.030
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRSTBORN SON
  • 00:14:10.030 --> 00:14:11.210
  • OF ABRAHAM.
  • 00:14:11.210 --> 00:14:13.010
  • AS FIRSTBORN,
  • 00:14:13.010 --> 00:14:14.250
  • HE WAS TO BE REDEEMED
  • 00:14:14.250 --> 00:14:16.250
  • OR SACRIFICED.
  • 00:14:16.250 --> 00:14:18.180
  • WHEN ABRAHAM PUT ISAAC
  • 00:14:18.180 --> 00:14:19.240
  • ON THE ALTAR,
  • 00:14:19.240 --> 00:14:21.230
  • GOD SENT A RAM TIED BY THE
  • 00:14:21.230 --> 00:14:24.110
  • HORNS IN A THICKET TO REDEEM
  • 00:14:24.240 --> 00:14:27.240
  • ISAAC.
  • 00:14:27.240 --> 00:14:29.070
  • WHEN THE FIRST FRUITS WAS
  • 00:14:29.070 --> 00:14:30.120
  • GIVEN,
  • 00:14:30.120 --> 00:14:31.020
  • IT BRINGS A MIGHTY HARVEST.
  • 00:14:31.020 --> 00:14:32.260
  • FOLLOW THE HISTORY.
  • 00:14:32.260 --> 00:14:34.210
  • WHATEVER IS DONE WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:14:34.210 --> 00:14:36.080
  • PORTION DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:14:36.080 --> 00:14:38.200
  • TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:14:38.200 --> 00:14:40.090
  • WE GO TO CHURCH
  • 00:14:40.090 --> 00:14:41.060
  • ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:14:41.060 --> 00:14:42.230
  • IT DETERMINES THE QUALITY
  • 00:14:42.230 --> 00:14:45.050
  • OF THE REST OF THE SIX DAYS.
  • 00:14:45.050 --> 00:14:47.210
  • YOU GIVE TO GOD YOUR TITHE
  • 00:14:47.210 --> 00:14:49.240
  • FIRST,
  • 00:14:49.240 --> 00:14:50.180
  • AND HE BLESSES WHAT IS LEFT.
  • 00:14:50.180 --> 00:14:53.080
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:14:53.080 --> 00:14:55.160
  • HE HAD TWO SONS,
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:56.260
  • JACOB AND ESAU.
  • 00:14:56.260 --> 00:14:58.130
  • JACOB HAD 12 SONS,
  • 00:14:58.130 --> 00:15:00.130
  • AND THEIR DESCENDANTS BECAME
  • 00:15:00.130 --> 00:15:02.050
  • THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:15:02.050 --> 00:15:04.110
  • GOD SENT JOSEPH INTO EGYPT
  • 00:15:04.110 --> 00:15:06.190
  • WHERE HE BECAME
  • 00:15:06.190 --> 00:15:07.110
  • THE PRIME MINISTER.
  • 00:15:07.110 --> 00:15:08.230
  • JOSEPH SENT FOR HIS FAMILY,
  • 00:15:08.230 --> 00:15:10.190
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO WERE 70
  • 00:15:10.190 --> 00:15:12.260
  • IN NUMBER.
  • 00:15:12.260 --> 00:15:14.000
  • AND THEY STAYED IN EGYPT
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:15.210
  • FOR 430 YEARS.
  • 00:15:15.210 --> 00:15:18.010
  • THEY BECAME A MIGHTY NATION
  • 00:15:18.010 --> 00:15:20.080
  • OF ALMOST TWO MILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:20.080 --> 00:15:22.150
  • EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE
  • 00:15:22.150 --> 00:15:23.160
  • PERSECUTED,
  • 00:15:23.160 --> 00:15:24.260
  • THEY PROSPERED AND THEY GREW.
  • 00:15:24.260 --> 00:15:27.060
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:27.060 --> 00:15:28.050
  • BECAUSE THE FIRST FRUIT,
  • 00:15:28.050 --> 00:15:29.260
  • ISAAC ON MOUNT MORIAH,
  • 00:15:29.260 --> 00:15:32.080
  • HAD BEEN GIVEN TO GOD.
  • 00:15:32.080 --> 00:15:34.010
  • AND WHAT YOU DO WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:15:34.010 --> 00:15:35.130
  • FRUIT DETERMINES THE GUARANTEE
  • 00:15:35.130 --> 00:15:38.040
  • OF EVERYTHING THAT COMES
  • 00:15:38.040 --> 00:15:39.110
  • AFTER IT!
  • 00:15:39.110 --> 00:15:40.050
  • THAT'S WHY THEY ARE BLESSED
  • 00:15:40.050 --> 00:15:41.260
  • AND ALWAYS WILL BE BLESSED,
  • 00:15:41.260 --> 00:15:44.020
  • BECAUSE GOD IS KEEPING
  • 00:15:44.020 --> 00:15:45.240
  • HIS COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM!
  • 00:15:45.240 --> 00:15:47.240
  • GIVE THE LORD A SHOUT OF PRAISE
  • 00:15:47.240 --> 00:15:49.210
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:15:49.210 --> 00:15:51.190
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:53.070 --> 00:15:56.070
  • NOW LET ME SHOW YOU HOW THAT
  • 00:15:56.070 --> 00:15:57.020
  • WORKS IN REVERSE.
  • 00:15:57.020 --> 00:15:58.190
  • IF YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD FIRST,
  • 00:15:58.190 --> 00:16:01.000
  • IT DOESN'T STOP
  • 00:16:01.000 --> 00:16:01.270
  • GOD FROM BEING FIRST;
  • 00:16:01.270 --> 00:16:04.150
  • IT ONLY RELEASES THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:16:04.150 --> 00:16:06.130
  • OF GOD UPON YOU.
  • 00:16:06.130 --> 00:16:08.110
  • IT RELEASES THE CURSE UPON
  • 00:16:08.110 --> 00:16:10.170
  • EVERYTHING YOU PUT YOUR HANDS
  • 00:16:10.170 --> 00:16:12.010
  • TO FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:16:12.010 --> 00:16:14.180
  • UNTIL YOU GET YOUR ACT
  • 00:16:14.180 --> 00:16:15.190
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:16:15.190 --> 00:16:16.270
  • THE ONLY WAY OUT IS REDEMPTION,
  • 00:16:16.270 --> 00:16:19.050
  • WHICH MEANS TO BUY BACK
  • 00:16:19.050 --> 00:16:21.000
  • FROM DESTRUCTION BY OBEYING
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:23.180
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:24.090 --> 00:16:27.090
  • WOW.
  • 00:16:27.090 --> 00:16:29.130
  • CONSIDER THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:16:29.130 --> 00:16:31.010
  • AND THE FALL OF JERICHO.
  • 00:16:31.010 --> 00:16:32.260
  • FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS
  • 00:16:32.260 --> 00:16:33.280
  • OF SLAVERY IN EGYPT WAS
  • 00:16:33.280 --> 00:16:35.080
  • FOLLOWED BY 40 YEARS OF HEAT
  • 00:16:35.260 --> 00:16:38.260
  • AND GRIT IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:16:38.260 --> 00:16:41.080
  • WITH JOSHUA AS THEIR LEADER,
  • 00:16:41.080 --> 00:16:43.100
  • GOD RELEASED A PLAN THAT WOULD
  • 00:16:43.100 --> 00:16:45.080
  • BEGIN THE CONQUEST
  • 00:16:45.080 --> 00:16:46.280
  • OF THE HOLY LAND.
  • 00:16:46.280 --> 00:16:48.150
  • THINK OF JERICHO
  • 00:16:48.150 --> 00:16:49.190
  • AS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:49.190 --> 00:16:50.250
  • JERICHO'S THE CITY.
  • 00:16:50.250 --> 00:16:53.060
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY
  • 00:16:53.060 --> 00:16:54.170
  • THAT STOOD BETWEEN ISRAEL
  • 00:16:54.170 --> 00:16:56.160
  • AND THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:16:56.160 --> 00:16:58.280
  • GOD MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE WAS
  • 00:16:58.280 --> 00:17:00.260
  • GIVING JERICHO TO THE JEWISH
  • 00:17:00.260 --> 00:17:03.130
  • PEOPLE AS A GIFT,
  • 00:17:03.130 --> 00:17:05.150
  • BECAUSE THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:17:05.150 --> 00:17:06.210
  • "I'M GOING TO FIGHT FOR YOU."
  • 00:17:06.210 --> 00:17:09.050
  • THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING
  • 00:17:09.050 --> 00:17:10.080
  • THAT WAS FORBIDDEN?
  • 00:17:10.080 --> 00:17:11.130
  • JOSHUA 6:18 AND 19,
  • 00:17:11.130 --> 00:17:13.260
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:17:13.260 --> 00:17:14.170
  • "THE GOLD AND THE SILVER
  • 00:17:14.170 --> 00:17:16.080
  • OF JERICHO BELONG TO ME.
  • 00:17:16.130 --> 00:17:19.130
  • AND YOU, BY ALL MEANS,
  • 00:17:19.130 --> 00:17:21.040
  • ABSTAIN FROM THE ACCURSED THING,
  • 00:17:21.040 --> 00:17:23.130
  • LEST YOU BECOME ACCURSED WHEN
  • 00:17:23.130 --> 00:17:25.240
  • YOU TAKE THE ACCURSED THING AND
  • 00:17:25.240 --> 00:17:27.130
  • MAKE THE CAMP OF ISRAEL A CURSE
  • 00:17:27.130 --> 00:17:30.040
  • AND A PLACE OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:17:30.110 --> 00:17:33.110
  • BUT ALL THE GOLD,
  • 00:17:33.110 --> 00:17:34.200
  • AND ALL THE SILVER,
  • 00:17:34.200 --> 00:17:36.060
  • AND ALL THE VESSELS OF IRON,
  • 00:17:36.060 --> 00:17:38.100
  • ARE CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:17:38.100 --> 00:17:40.120
  • THEY SHALL COME INTO
  • 00:17:40.120 --> 00:17:41.200
  • THE TREASURY OF THE LORD."
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:44.040
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:17:44.040 --> 00:17:45.080
  • BECAUSE ISRAEL FULLY UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:17:45.080 --> 00:17:47.020
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:17:47.020 --> 00:17:48.140
  • THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:17:48.140 --> 00:17:50.040
  • IN JERICHO BELONGED
  • 00:17:50.040 --> 00:17:51.210
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:17:51.210 --> 00:17:52.190
  • KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF IT,
  • 00:17:52.190 --> 00:17:53.270
  • BECAUSE GOD WAS GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:17:53.270 --> 00:17:55.090
  • YOU EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WOULD
  • 00:17:55.090 --> 00:17:56.180
  • COME AFTER IT.
  • 00:17:56.180 --> 00:17:57.180
  • EVERYBODY GOT THE MESSAGE
  • 00:17:57.180 --> 00:17:59.210
  • BUT ONE GUY, ACHAN,
  • 00:18:00.160 --> 00:18:03.160
  • BECAUSE HE WAS THE SMART ALECK
  • 00:18:03.160 --> 00:18:05.250
  • WHO KNEW BETTER.
  • 00:18:05.250 --> 00:18:07.110
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE RELATIVES
  • 00:18:07.110 --> 00:18:08.150
  • THAT ALWAYS KNOW BETTER?
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:11.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:11.060 --> 00:18:11.250
  • THEY ALWAYS HAVE THE BETTER
  • 00:18:11.250 --> 00:18:12.280
  • IDEA,
  • 00:18:12.280 --> 00:18:13.280
  • AND IT ALWAYS TURNS OUT
  • 00:18:13.280 --> 00:18:15.060
  • TO BE A DISASTER.
  • 00:18:15.060 --> 00:18:17.030
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:17.030 --> 00:18:17.220
  • THE BATTLE OF AI,
  • 00:18:17.220 --> 00:18:18.180
  • ISRAEL'S ARMY WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:18:18.290 --> 00:18:21.290
  • JOSHUA INQUIRED OF THE LORD,
  • 00:18:21.290 --> 00:18:23.220
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:18:23.220 --> 00:18:24.090
  • "GET UP;
  • 00:18:24.090 --> 00:18:24.250
  • THERE'S SIN IN THE CAMP."
  • 00:18:24.250 --> 00:18:26.100
  • AND THEY WENT TENT BY TENT
  • 00:18:26.100 --> 00:18:28.040
  • SEARCHING.
  • 00:18:28.040 --> 00:18:29.040
  • THEY SEARCHED 11 TRIBES.
  • 00:18:29.040 --> 00:18:31.200
  • AND THEY REACHED ACHAN'S TRIBE.
  • 00:18:31.200 --> 00:18:34.020
  • THE TRIBE OF JUDAH WAS LAST.
  • 00:18:34.020 --> 00:18:36.010
  • AND THEY CAME TO HIS TENT,
  • 00:18:36.010 --> 00:18:37.190
  • AND JOSHUA COMMANDED ACHAN
  • 00:18:37.190 --> 00:18:39.130
  • IN JOSHUA 7:19,
  • 00:18:39.130 --> 00:18:41.110
  • "GIVE GOD THE GLORY."
  • 00:18:41.110 --> 00:18:43.050
  • THAT MEANS THE THINGS
  • 00:18:43.050 --> 00:18:44.040
  • YOU'VE STOLEN,
  • 00:18:44.040 --> 00:18:45.130
  • GIVE THEM BACK.
  • 00:18:45.130 --> 00:18:46.250
  • ACHAN HAD STOLEN THE GLORY
  • 00:18:46.250 --> 00:18:48.080
  • OF GOD BECAUSE HE TOOK
  • 00:18:48.080 --> 00:18:49.110
  • THE THINGS THAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:51.170
  • THE RESULT WAS THAT ACHAN,
  • 00:18:51.180 --> 00:18:54.180
  • HIS WIFE,
  • 00:18:54.180 --> 00:18:56.000
  • HIS SONS,
  • 00:18:56.000 --> 00:18:56.200
  • HIS DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:18:56.200 --> 00:18:57.120
  • HIS LIVESTOCK,
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:18:58.220
  • WERE STONED TO DEATH
  • 00:18:58.220 --> 00:18:59.270
  • BY ALL OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:01.220
  • AND THEY STACKED THEIR BODIES
  • 00:19:01.220 --> 00:19:03.060
  • IN A PILE AND BURNED THEM WITH
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:04.270
  • FIRE TO PURGE ISRAEL OF THE SIN
  • 00:19:05.050 --> 00:19:08.050
  • OF TAKING WHAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:19:08.050 --> 00:19:10.250
  • THINK ABOUT THIS STORY.
  • 00:19:10.250 --> 00:19:12.070
  • BECAUSE OF ONE MAN'S
  • 00:19:12.070 --> 00:19:13.160
  • DISOBEDIENCE,
  • 00:19:13.160 --> 00:19:14.200
  • THE ENTIRE NATION SUFFERED
  • 00:19:14.200 --> 00:19:16.250
  • THE CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:19:16.250 --> 00:19:18.120
  • THEY HAD TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:19:18.120 --> 00:19:19.240
  • THE ACHAN FACTOR.
  • 00:19:19.240 --> 00:19:22.120
  • ARE YOU TAKING WHAT BELONGS
  • 00:19:22.120 --> 00:19:23.210
  • TO THE LORD?
  • 00:19:23.210 --> 00:19:25.100
  • IS YOUR FAMILY OR YOUR CHILDREN?
  • 00:19:25.100 --> 00:19:27.140
  • WILL GENERATIONS AFTER YOU
  • 00:19:27.140 --> 00:19:29.140
  • SUFFER BECAUSE OF YOUR REFUSAL
  • 00:19:29.140 --> 00:19:31.270
  • TO OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:32.270
  • OF FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:19:32.270 --> 00:19:34.170
  • IF THE CHURCH IS ONE BODY
  • 00:19:34.170 --> 00:19:36.040
  • FITLY JOINED TOGETHER,
  • 00:19:36.040 --> 00:19:37.290
  • THEN YOUR DISOBEDIENCE AFFECTS
  • 00:19:37.290 --> 00:19:39.180
  • THE WHOLE BODY.
  • 00:19:39.180 --> 00:19:40.190
  • IF ONE MAN AFFECTED TWO MILLION
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:42.110
  • PEOPLE IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:19:42.110 --> 00:19:43.200
  • CERTAINLY ONE MAN
  • 00:19:43.200 --> 00:19:44.200
  • CAN AFFECT 22.000 HERE
  • 00:19:44.200 --> 00:19:46.160
  • AT CORNERSTONE CHURCH.
  • 00:19:46.160 --> 00:19:48.240
  • THIS EXPLAINS WHY SOME CHURCHES
  • 00:19:48.240 --> 00:19:50.180
  • DO NOT FINANCIALLY PROSPER.
  • 00:19:50.180 --> 00:19:52.240
  • WHEN ISRAEL WAS IN THE DESERT,
  • 00:19:52.240 --> 00:19:54.050
  • ALL THEY HAD WAS MANNA.
  • 00:19:54.050 --> 00:19:55.240
  • NONE OF THEIR CLOTHES WORE OUT.
  • 00:19:55.240 --> 00:19:57.130
  • THEY WERE NOT SICK NOR FEEBLE,
  • 00:19:57.130 --> 00:19:59.030
  • NO ONE, FOR 40 YEARS.
  • 00:19:59.060 --> 00:20:02.060
  • GOD'S ABUNDANCE WILL BE
  • 00:20:02.060 --> 00:20:03.290
  • WITHHELD FROM THE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:20:03.290 --> 00:20:06.220
  • REFUSE TO HONOR HIM AS FIRST.
  • 00:20:07.030 --> 00:20:10.030
  • THE SPIRIT OF ACHAN TAKES WHAT
  • 00:20:10.030 --> 00:20:11.210
  • BELONGS TO GOD AND KEEPS IT
  • 00:20:11.210 --> 00:20:13.270
  • FOR HIMSELF AT THE EXPENSE
  • 00:20:13.270 --> 00:20:16.130
  • OF OTHERS.
  • 00:20:16.130 --> 00:20:18.010
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:20:18.010 --> 00:20:19.030
  • AND TITHING.
  • 00:20:19.030 --> 00:20:19.260
  • TITHING IS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:19.260 --> 00:20:21.180
  • LET'S REVIEW WHAT WE'VE
  • 00:20:21.180 --> 00:20:22.160
  • LEARNED.
  • 00:20:22.160 --> 00:20:23.180
  • THE FIRST FRUITS INCLUDE
  • 00:20:23.180 --> 00:20:24.220
  • CHILDREN, ANIMALS, CROPS,
  • 00:20:24.220 --> 00:20:27.010
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:28.230
  • GOD SIMPLY SAYS,
  • 00:20:28.230 --> 00:20:29.250
  • I WANT TO BE THE FIRST
  • 00:20:29.250 --> 00:20:30.280
  • OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:20:30.280 --> 00:20:32.020
  • WHEN GOD DESTROYED JERICHO,
  • 00:20:32.020 --> 00:20:33.230
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY CONQUERED
  • 00:20:33.230 --> 00:20:35.170
  • ON THE WAY
  • 00:20:35.170 --> 00:20:36.030
  • TO THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:20:36.030 --> 00:20:37.080
  • IT WAS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:37.080 --> 00:20:38.140
  • AND GOD SAYS, IT'S MINE.
  • 00:20:38.140 --> 00:20:40.200
  • YOUR INCOME IS EITHER
  • 00:20:40.200 --> 00:20:42.060
  • CONSECRATED OR CURSED.
  • 00:20:42.060 --> 00:20:44.290
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:20:44.290 --> 00:20:45.270
  • IT'S EITHER CONSECRATED
  • 00:20:45.270 --> 00:20:47.090
  • OR CURSED.
  • 00:20:47.090 --> 00:20:48.000
  • THE TITHE, IN THE SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:20:48.000 --> 00:20:49.230
  • IS CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:20:49.230 --> 00:20:51.200
  • IF YOU KEEP IT FOR YOURSELF,
  • 00:20:51.200 --> 00:20:53.180
  • IT BECOMES A --
  • 00:20:53.180 --> 00:20:55.090
  • [Curse.]
  • 00:20:55.090 --> 00:20:56.020
  • -- CURSE,
  • 00:20:56.020 --> 00:20:57.170
  • BECAUSE IT'S STOLEN FROM GOD.
  • 00:20:57.170 --> 00:21:00.170
  • GOD MAKES THAT CLEAR
  • 00:21:00.170 --> 00:21:01.230
  • IN MALACHI 3:8 AND 9.
  • 00:21:01.230 --> 00:21:04.070
  • "WILL A MAN ROB GOD?
  • 00:21:04.070 --> 00:21:05.100
  • YOU'VE ROBBED ME.
  • 00:21:05.100 --> 00:21:06.270
  • HOW DID WE ROB YOU?"
  • 00:21:06.270 --> 00:21:08.120
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:21:08.120 --> 00:21:09.010
  • "YOU HAVE STOLEN THE TITHE
  • 00:21:09.010 --> 00:21:11.190
  • AND THE OFFERING FROM ME.
  • 00:21:11.190 --> 00:21:13.000
  • YOU ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE;
  • 00:21:13.000 --> 00:21:14.170
  • FOR YOU HAVE ROBBED ME."
  • 00:21:15.020 --> 00:21:18.020
  • THE TITHE IS A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:19.050 --> 00:21:22.050
  • IT'S NOT A DEBT WE OWE;
  • 00:21:22.050 --> 00:21:23.160
  • IT'S A SEED WE SOW.
  • 00:21:23.160 --> 00:21:26.000
  • WHEREVER THERE IS THE NUMBER
  • 00:21:26.000 --> 00:21:27.020
  • OF TEN INVOLVED,
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:28.210
  • THERE'S A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:28.210 --> 00:21:30.250
  • THE PLAGUES WERE USED TO SET
  • 00:21:30.250 --> 00:21:32.080
  • ISRAEL FREE FROM PHARAOH,
  • 00:21:32.080 --> 00:21:34.010
  • TEN PLAGUES.
  • 00:21:34.010 --> 00:21:35.080
  • TEN COMMANDMENTS WERE GIVEN
  • 00:21:35.080 --> 00:21:36.220
  • TO SET THE WORLD FREE
  • 00:21:36.220 --> 00:21:38.180
  • FROM THE TYRANNY OF EVIL.
  • 00:21:38.180 --> 00:21:40.190
  • TEN DONKEYS WERE SENT BY JOSEPH
  • 00:21:40.190 --> 00:21:42.200
  • TO BRING JACOB AND ALL OF
  • 00:21:42.200 --> 00:21:44.230
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY
  • 00:21:44.230 --> 00:21:46.240
  • TO THE LANDS OF EGYPT.
  • 00:21:46.240 --> 00:21:48.180
  • THE TENTH PART OF YOUR INCREASE
  • 00:21:48.180 --> 00:21:50.190
  • IS THE REDEMPTION
  • 00:21:50.190 --> 00:21:51.140
  • OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:21:51.140 --> 00:21:52.170
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GIVE 10%
  • 00:21:52.240 --> 00:21:55.240
  • OF YOUR INCOME
  • 00:21:55.240 --> 00:21:56.280
  • AND NOT GIVE THE FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:21:56.280 --> 00:21:58.290
  • THAT'S A QUESTION.
  • 00:21:58.290 --> 00:21:59.260
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:21:59.260 --> 00:22:01.230
  • LET'S PRETEND FOR JUST A MOMENT
  • 00:22:01.230 --> 00:22:03.130
  • THAT EACH ONE OF THESE ONE
  • 00:22:03.130 --> 00:22:05.220
  • DOLLAR BILLS IS A HUNDRED
  • 00:22:05.220 --> 00:22:07.280
  • DOLLAR BILL.
  • 00:22:07.280 --> 00:22:08.210
  • THIS IS A LOW BUCKET
  • 00:22:08.210 --> 00:22:10.060
  • ILLUSTRATION HERE.
  • 00:22:10.060 --> 00:22:11.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:11.240 --> 00:22:12.080
  • THE QUESTION IS;
  • 00:22:12.080 --> 00:22:13.090
  • CAN YOU GIVE GOD A TENTH
  • 00:22:13.090 --> 00:22:14.140
  • AND NOT PAY TITHE?
  • 00:22:14.140 --> 00:22:15.170
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:15.170 --> 00:22:18.020
  • IF YOU SIT DOWN TO PAY
  • 00:22:18.020 --> 00:22:19.050
  • YOUR BILLS,
  • 00:22:19.050 --> 00:22:19.270
  • AND YOU DO YOUR HOUSE NOTE,
  • 00:22:19.270 --> 00:22:22.050
  • YOUR CAR NOTE,
  • 00:22:22.050 --> 00:22:23.020
  • YOUR TWO CAR NOTES,
  • 00:22:23.020 --> 00:22:24.070
  • YOUR POODLE SHAMPOO,
  • 00:22:24.180 --> 00:22:27.180
  • YOUR TRIP TOO HAWAII,

  • YOUR, YOUR, YOUR, YOUR...
  • 00:22:28.270 --> 00:22:31.020
  • AND YOU GIVE GOD THIS,
  • 00:22:31.020 --> 00:22:34.000
  • GOD DON'T WANT THIS.
  • 00:22:34.000 --> 00:22:36.180
  • YOU KNOW ALL OF IT BELONGS
  • 00:22:36.180 --> 00:22:37.140
  • TO HIM.
  • 00:22:37.140 --> 00:22:38.000
  • AND IF HE WANTED,
  • 00:22:38.000 --> 00:22:38.200
  • HE'D GET IT ALL.
  • 00:22:38.200 --> 00:22:40.270
  • WHAT HE WANTS IS THIS ONE.
  • 00:22:40.270 --> 00:22:43.180
  • THIS IS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:22:43.180 --> 00:22:46.020
  • WHEN HE GETS THIS ONE,
  • 00:22:46.020 --> 00:22:47.130
  • ALL OF THESE ARE CONSECRATED.
  • 00:22:47.130 --> 00:22:50.090
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:55.120 --> 00:22:58.120
  • IF YOU WANT GOD'S FAVOR,
  • 00:22:58.120 --> 00:23:00.080
  • HIS ABUNDANCE,
  • 00:23:00.080 --> 00:23:02.020
  • UNLIMITED VICTORY,
  • 00:23:02.020 --> 00:23:04.240
  • SUPERNATURAL HEALTH,
  • 00:23:05.110 --> 00:23:08.110
  • UNLIMITED PROMOTION,
  • 00:23:08.110 --> 00:23:11.100
  • UNLIMITED FAVOR,
  • 00:23:11.100 --> 00:23:14.000
  • THEN GIVE THE LORD THE FIRST
  • 00:23:14.000 --> 00:23:15.080
  • FRUITS AND YOU WILL PROSPER.
  • 00:23:15.080 --> 00:23:17.260
  • THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
  • 00:23:18.010 --> 00:23:21.010
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO EXPLODE
  • 00:23:22.100 --> 00:23:25.100
  • WITH ABUNDANCE.
  • 00:23:25.100 --> 00:23:27.050
  • BUT HE WILL NOT REWARD
  • 00:23:27.050 --> 00:23:29.200
  • DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:23:29.200 --> 00:23:31.280
  • LOOK AT THE ILLUSTRATIONS
  • 00:23:31.280 --> 00:23:33.060
  • OF ADAM AND EVE,
  • 00:23:33.060 --> 00:23:35.060
  • OF ACHAN'S FAMILY.
  • 00:23:35.060 --> 00:23:37.010
  • HE JUST DOES NOT REWARD
