  • 00:00:08.030 --> 00:00:19.210
  • GLORIA: Hello everybody. Welcome to the believers voice
  • 00:00:24.260 --> 00:00:27.040
  • of victory. We got a good word today. God is your
  • 00:00:27.050 --> 00:00:31.170

  • source of our supply. It's good to be on the broadcast with you,
  • 00:00:35.160 --> 00:00:39.030
  • Gloria. GLORIA: It's good to have you preaching to me again.
  • 00:00:39.040 --> 00:00:41.230
  • GEORGE: It's always really, it's a lot of fun to be with you
  • 00:00:41.240 --> 00:00:44.220
  • here, and I wish the people could actually see what goes on
  • 00:00:44.230 --> 00:00:47.110
  • in between these broadcast because we get some really great
  • 00:00:47.120 --> 00:00:50.010
  • revelation. For instance, and I've got to mention this before
  • 00:00:50.020 --> 00:00:54.020
  • we get into this today, but you came up with one today. It's a
  • 00:00:54.030 --> 00:00:57.000
  • classic. This is a classic Gloriaism. Praying in the spirit
  • 00:00:57.010 --> 00:01:00.150
  • makes you smarter than yourself. That's right. Really like that
  • 00:01:00.160 --> 00:01:05.290
  • one. I'm going to use that one over and over again. Praying in
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:09.220
  • the spirit makes you smarter than yourself. So if you want to
  • 00:01:09.230 --> 00:01:12.070
  • be smarter, smarter than a, what does that, what's the name of
  • 00:01:12.080 --> 00:01:16.170
  • that show? Smarter than a, are you smarter fifth grader. If you
  • 00:01:16.180 --> 00:01:19.210
  • smarter than a fifth grader, praying in the Spirit make you
  • 00:01:19.220 --> 00:01:22.210
  • smarter than yourself. So as we, as we continue in this series
  • 00:01:22.220 --> 00:01:27.050
  • today, I'm looking forward to what she's going to say because
  • 00:01:27.060 --> 00:01:30.290
  • it's always really great. Okay. So we are on day number 353 of
  • 00:01:31.000 --> 00:01:37.280
  • our prosperity series, Gloria, and we've had 1.5 million
  • 00:01:37.290 --> 00:01:42.150
  • downloads of these outlines that we've done since the start. And
  • 00:01:42.160 --> 00:01:47.180
  • people are interested in prospering. Aren't they? Getting
  • 00:01:47.190 --> 00:01:51.200
  • out of debt, paying their bills? GLORIA: Well, I am. I remember
  • 00:01:51.210 --> 00:01:57.280
  • when we were in debt, we didn't have any money. I had to work to
  • 00:01:57.290 --> 00:02:04.270
  • pay the rent or whatever it was, utility bills, it was a bummer.
  • 00:02:04.280 --> 00:02:09.250
  • I'm interested. I was glad that, I was glad when they said to me,
  • 00:02:09.260 --> 00:02:18.190
  • go find out what the word says about prosperity. GEORGE: You
  • 00:02:18.200 --> 00:02:22.180
  • were glad. Yeah. I like, we need to capture what you just said
  • 00:02:22.190 --> 00:02:26.070
  • and put that paragraph. That was a bummer. That was a bummer. We
  • 00:02:26.080 --> 00:02:31.190
  • know that you don't want to experience the bummer. We want
  • 00:02:31.200 --> 00:02:35.100
  • you to experience prosperity in its fullness. And there's some
  • 00:02:35.110 --> 00:02:39.000
  • folks that are struggling out there. They're going from
  • 00:02:39.010 --> 00:02:41.080
  • paycheck to paycheck and a lot of people are willing, no. Yeah.
  • 00:02:41.090 --> 00:02:44.010
  • You do. Yeah. I, you know, I remember the same thing too and
  • 00:02:44.020 --> 00:02:47.270
  • I'm so grateful to the Lord. I told you yesterday on the
  • 00:02:47.280 --> 00:02:50.290
  • broadcast, I'm the accounting department at home. I paid the
  • 00:02:51.000 --> 00:02:53.190
  • bills and you know what, Gloria, we have progressed in our lives
  • 00:02:53.200 --> 00:02:57.030
  • in great degree to what you and Kenneth have taught us that when
  • 00:02:57.040 --> 00:03:02.290
  • I sit down to do bills, there's always extra. GLORIA: Praise
  • 00:03:03.000 --> 00:03:05.230
  • God. What a good word. GEORGE: That's a good word. GLORIA: You
  • 00:03:05.240 --> 00:03:09.140
  • could go around and you could make that a good confession.
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:12.070
  • GEORGE: Extra. GLORIA: When I sit down to pay bills there's
  • 00:03:12.080 --> 00:03:16.100
  • always extra. There's always extra extra on your mind.
  • 00:03:16.110 --> 00:03:20.000
  • GEORGE: Extra, extra, extra, read all about it. That's where
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:27.050
  • we're wanting you to go. That's what we want you to experience
  • 00:03:27.060 --> 00:03:29.290
  • is the fullness of the prosperity that God has for us,
  • 00:03:30.000 --> 00:03:33.230
  • especially in the realm of provision and finances. That's
  • 00:03:33.240 --> 00:03:37.240
  • where a lot of pressure comes from. People who are under
  • 00:03:37.250 --> 00:03:40.170
  • tremendous pressure. GLORIA: What was it, George, I've got
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:43.060
  • this note here. Correct me if I didn't write it right. 1
  • 00:03:43.070 --> 00:03:46.180
  • million, 1 million, a million and a half downloads are,
  • 00:03:46.190 --> 00:03:53.150
  • downloads have been sent for. GEORGE: They've been downloaded.
  • 00:03:53.160 --> 00:03:57.260
  • So the people, all they have to do is go to our picture on
  • 00:03:57.270 --> 00:04:00.260
  • kcm.org they can click onto it and it'll take them right to not
  • 00:04:00.270 --> 00:04:05.060
  • only the outlines for this series, but all of them from the
  • 00:04:05.070 --> 00:04:08.090
  • time you and I started. All of them are out there for people to
  • 00:04:08.100 --> 00:04:12.040
  • be able to access. I know pastors, they use these as
  • 00:04:12.050 --> 00:04:16.260
  • they're offering this great, and others, they have prosperity
  • 00:04:16.270 --> 00:04:20.150
  • seminars in their church. So there they're being used,
  • 00:04:20.160 --> 00:04:22.250
  • they're absolutely free. And the thing about this too, they can
  • 00:04:22.260 --> 00:04:26.120
  • print them out, print them, and give them, and if you're a
  • 00:04:26.130 --> 00:04:29.260
  • pastor, give them to the whole church. We don't charge for
  • 00:04:29.270 --> 00:04:32.260
  • these. These are absolutely free. So we're, we're talking
  • 00:04:32.270 --> 00:04:36.180
  • Gloria about God is my source. That's the whole purpose of why
  • 00:04:36.190 --> 00:04:41.080
  • we're on this week. God is our source. He meets all of our
  • 00:04:41.090 --> 00:04:45.200
  • needs according to what his riches and glory by Christ
  • 00:04:45.210 --> 00:04:49.070
  • Jesus. GLORIA: They're under no hardship there. GEORGE: No,
  • 00:04:49.080 --> 00:04:52.120
  • they're not. Heaven is not under hardship. No, no, no, no, no.
  • 00:04:52.130 --> 00:04:59.200
  • That's what you said yesterday. You talked about the riches in
  • 00:04:59.210 --> 00:05:03.200
  • glory or the resources that God has. It's the Bank of Heaven and
  • 00:05:03.210 --> 00:05:07.090
  • the economy is good. Always in heaven. GLORIA: You know why?
  • 00:05:07.100 --> 00:05:12.050
  • They do things right. GEORGE: They do. They do things right.
  • 00:05:12.060 --> 00:05:16.110
  • They really do. GLORIA: So the blessing is working. GEORGE: The
  • 00:05:16.120 --> 00:05:19.130
  • blessing is working. The blessing is working. GLORIA: The
  • 00:05:19.140 --> 00:05:22.000
  • blessings in the earth and the blessings in Heaven. GEORGE: So
  • 00:05:22.010 --> 00:05:24.050
  • if you're one of those that's struggling right now
  • 00:05:24.060 --> 00:05:26.020
  • financially, and you're wondering where's it going to
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:28.260
  • come from? I've got this amount of money coming in on my
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:31.200
  • paycheck, I've got these bills that are over here. These things
  • 00:05:31.210 --> 00:05:35.030
  • that are due, these things that are broken down, where is it
  • 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:38.290
  • going to come from? And you know what really the question is who?
  • 00:05:39.000 --> 00:05:42.120
  • Who it's going to come from. And Him is the answer. Because he is
  • 00:05:42.130 --> 00:05:48.050
  • the possessor of all things and he wants to bless us. GLORIA:
  • 00:05:48.060 --> 00:05:51.030
  • And you, you just have to learn how to withdrawal in your
  • 00:05:51.040 --> 00:05:56.260
  • deposit that God's got for you. I mean, we, it could, heaven, as
  • 00:05:56.270 --> 00:06:02.010
  • I expect that heaven is loaded up because people don't
  • 00:06:02.020 --> 00:06:05.230
  • withdrawal the faith that belongs to them. GEORGE: So
  • 00:06:05.240 --> 00:06:10.150
  • good, Gloria. That's so good. GLORIA: So we need to fix that.
  • 00:06:10.160 --> 00:06:13.100
  • GEORGE: We got to fix that. Well you were just saying that in
  • 00:06:13.110 --> 00:06:15.290
  • Philippians three. Let me just read this to you cause you just,
  • 00:06:16.000 --> 00:06:19.170
  • you just said this. Um, Paul was writing in Philippians in
  • 00:06:19.180 --> 00:06:23.100
  • Philippians four and he said no, you Philippians know that also
  • 00:06:23.110 --> 00:06:29.190
  • in the beginning of the Gospel when I departed from Macedonia,
  • 00:06:29.200 --> 00:06:32.220
  • no church communicated with me as concerning giving and
  • 00:06:32.230 --> 00:06:36.010
  • receiving. But you only for even in Thessalonica, you sent once
  • 00:06:36.020 --> 00:06:40.260
  • and again to my necessity, not that I desire a gift, but I
  • 00:06:40.270 --> 00:06:44.190
  • desire fruit that may abound to your account. Account and we can
  • 00:06:44.200 --> 00:06:51.140
  • make withdrawals from that account from the giving that we
  • 00:06:51.150 --> 00:06:56.030
  • do the sowing that we do to be able, what you just said-
  • 00:06:56.040 --> 00:06:59.230
  • GLORIA: That is how we deposit. GEORGE: You deposit by sowing.
  • 00:06:59.240 --> 00:07:02.260
  • GLORIA: Where else could you get a deal like that? GEORGE: What a
  • 00:07:02.270 --> 00:07:06.230
  • deal it is too. GLORIA: You deposit by sowing. GEORGE: You
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:10.000
  • deposit by sowing. GLORIA: Increase by sowing. GEORGE: You
  • 00:07:10.010 --> 00:07:14.030
  • increase by sowing. You make your deposit. Tell me about the
  • 00:07:14.040 --> 00:07:18.230
  • interest in the Bank of Heaven. What is the return? Oh, what is
  • 00:07:18.240 --> 00:07:23.010
  • the return? Is there a hundred fold return on what we, okay.
  • 00:07:23.020 --> 00:07:31.090
  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, that's right. GLORIA: Thirty some thirty some
  • 00:07:31.100 --> 00:07:32.290
  • sixty some a hundred fold. I like the a hundred. GEORGE: So
  • 00:07:33.000 --> 00:07:35.080
  • that's available to us. He is our source of supply. But there
  • 00:07:35.090 --> 00:07:39.290
  • are certain things that we have to do. We have to make a
  • 00:07:40.000 --> 00:07:42.180
  • withdrawal from our heavenly account. We need to, we need to
  • 00:07:42.190 --> 00:07:45.200
  • by faith call in the harvest. GLORIA: That's right and you
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:48.170
  • need, uh, if you wanna walk in the supernatural and healing and
  • 00:07:48.180 --> 00:07:52.000
  • money and anything else, you're going to have to keep your
  • 00:07:52.010 --> 00:07:55.010
  • words, faith words. You're going to have to believe God and not
  • 00:07:55.020 --> 00:08:00.240
  • get to worry in and not let things overtake you. And not if
  • 00:08:00.250 --> 00:08:03.270
  • you're, if you've ever been given a bad health report from
  • 00:08:03.280 --> 00:08:07.210
  • the doctor, get on the Word of God. Start believing I'm healed
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:11.190
  • by his stripes I was healed. Start saying the word. The same
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:15.110
  • thing works with prosperity. I do it the very same way GEORGE:
  • 00:08:15.120 --> 00:08:18.080
  • You do. Like you said, you have to watch your words. You gotta
  • 00:08:18.090 --> 00:08:21.110
  • Watch what you say and make sure that it's in line with what he
  • 00:08:21.120 --> 00:08:24.040
  • says. We have a covenant with God. We have, this is one of the
  • 00:08:24.050 --> 00:08:28.150
  • first things I learned when I came here to Kenneth Copeland
  • 00:08:28.160 --> 00:08:30.180
  • ministries was we have a covenant with God and it's a
  • 00:08:30.190 --> 00:08:34.090
  • covenant of Health. A covenant of wealth. Covenant of
  • 00:08:34.100 --> 00:08:37.120
  • provision, peace, a covenant of peace with him and in second
  • 00:08:37.130 --> 00:08:42.060
  • chronicles 16:9 look at there at the top of your page, it says,
  • 00:08:42.070 --> 00:08:45.260
  • for the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole
  • 00:08:45.270 --> 00:08:49.240
  • earth to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart
  • 00:08:49.250 --> 00:08:54.250
  • is perfect towards him. That's covenant talk right there. He is
  • 00:08:54.260 --> 00:08:59.150
  • running to and fro throughout the whole earth to show himself
  • 00:08:59.160 --> 00:09:03.190
  • strong. GLORIA: I think you could say whose heart is turned
  • 00:09:03.200 --> 00:09:07.270
  • toward him. GEORGE: Oh, that's good. GLORIA: In other words,
  • 00:09:07.280 --> 00:09:12.070
  • yeah, he's your, he's your source. You're not thinking
  • 00:09:12.080 --> 00:09:16.210
  • about all this other stuff. Your heart is turned, it's turned,
  • 00:09:16.220 --> 00:09:20.080
  • turned toward worry. It is. GEORGE: If you've been worried,
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:25.110
  • like Gloria just said, if you've been worried over your finances,
  • 00:09:25.120 --> 00:09:29.070
  • you need to turn from that worry over to him who has everything
  • 00:09:29.080 --> 00:09:35.000
  • that you need and to his word. GLORIA: And they way you can do
  • 00:09:35.010 --> 00:09:38.010
  • it is putting your eyes on the God. What's that called?
  • 00:09:38.020 --> 00:09:41.260
  • Renewing your mind, renewing your mind. What would be
  • 00:09:41.270 --> 00:09:44.150
  • renewing your mind,? Renewing your thinking. This renews your
  • 00:09:44.160 --> 00:09:48.250
  • thinking and poverty to bless you, to abundance from sickness
  • 00:09:48.260 --> 00:09:53.040
  • to health, and you get those words in your mouth and your
  • 00:09:53.050 --> 00:09:57.230
  • heart. And they come to pass and your life. GLORIA: Yeah,
  • 00:09:57.240 --> 00:10:00.240
  • you renew your mind from poverty thinking. From
  • 00:10:00.250 --> 00:10:04.120
  • a poverty lack mentality over into a prosperity,
  • 00:10:04.130 --> 00:10:09.050
  • wealth mentality, a fully provided mentality that
  • 00:10:09.060 --> 00:10:14.190
  • God's going to take care of it all. GEORGE:
  • 00:10:14.200 --> 00:10:16.000
  • He's going to take care of everything that we need, and
  • 00:10:16.010 --> 00:10:19.030
  • that's in the covenant that we have with him, there's a phrase
  • 00:10:19.040 --> 00:10:21.240
  • here I want to read to you. God has a covenant determination and
  • 00:10:21.250 --> 00:10:25.190
  • a passion. To locate his covenant people and prosper them
  • 00:10:25.200 --> 00:10:29.250
  • beyond their greatest imagination. It is an undying
  • 00:10:29.260 --> 00:10:35.000
  • covenant devotion that propels him to extend himself to us with
  • 00:10:35.010 --> 00:10:39.060
  • everything he is and everything that he has and I defined here
  • 00:10:39.070 --> 00:10:44.160
  • for us, Gloria, what the word covenant is. It is an
  • 00:10:44.170 --> 00:10:48.090
  • unbreakable agreement between two parties that have joined
  • 00:10:48.100 --> 00:10:51.090
  • together as one to support, provide, protect and defend each
  • 00:10:51.100 --> 00:10:55.140
  • other. We're in covenant with him. It's a covenant of blood
  • 00:10:55.150 --> 00:10:59.050
  • that we have with him and in that covenant he will provide
  • 00:10:59.060 --> 00:11:03.120
  • for us everything that we need. When you have two covenant
  • 00:11:03.130 --> 00:11:07.200
  • partners together, they will be helping each other. They will be
  • 00:11:07.210 --> 00:11:11.040
  • supporting each other. They will be giving to each other. My God
  • 00:11:11.050 --> 00:11:14.110
  • shall supply all my need according to his riches and
  • 00:11:14.120 --> 00:11:18.010
  • glory by Christ Jesus. GLORIA: Alright, I'm thinking now
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:20.250
  • somebody in the natural would think, yeah, what can I do to
  • 00:11:20.260 --> 00:11:25.110
  • get God in my finances? Tithe. Tithe. That's what the tithe is
  • 00:11:25.120 --> 00:11:36.230
  • for I think, to give God an open door in finances, we never, we
  • 00:11:36.240 --> 00:11:41.280
  • never increased until we began to tithe and when we started the
  • 00:11:41.290 --> 00:11:45.220
  • tithe we thought we needed it worse than God did. That was
  • 00:11:45.230 --> 00:11:48.280
  • going back probably the 70s you know? And uh, and we didn't have
  • 00:11:48.290 --> 00:11:54.050
  • the money to tithe, but we did it anyway. We did it. I remember
  • 00:11:54.060 --> 00:11:58.200
  • being in that little house in Tulsa with the rented roll away
  • 00:11:58.210 --> 00:12:03.020
  • bed and we didn't even own our own roll away bed. But we
  • 00:12:03.030 --> 00:12:05.170
  • tithed, George, and we prospered. GEORGE: You did. And
  • 00:12:05.180 --> 00:12:08.180
  • you were mentioning the tithe we have tither's rights. GLORIA:
  • 00:12:08.190 --> 00:12:12.080
  • Yeah. I like that. GEORGE: Tither's rights. GLORIA: I think
  • 00:12:12.090 --> 00:12:14.210
  • you should do a book on that. I'll take it. I'll buy it.
  • 00:12:14.220 --> 00:12:19.250
  • GEORGE: As a command. In Malachi 3:10, bringing all the tithes
  • 00:12:19.260 --> 00:12:24.260
  • into the storehouse that there may be meat in my house and
  • 00:12:24.270 --> 00:12:28.000
  • prove me now here with that, the Lord of hosts, if I'll not open
  • 00:12:28.010 --> 00:12:31.010
  • the windows of Heaven and pour you out a blessing that there
  • 00:12:31.020 --> 00:12:34.260
  • shall not be room enough to receive it. And then listen to
  • 00:12:34.270 --> 00:12:37.110
  • this. It says, It's not on there, Gloria, you brought up
  • 00:12:37.120 --> 00:12:40.200
  • tithes I wanted to read this and I will rebuke the devour. For
  • 00:12:40.210 --> 00:12:44.010
  • your sakes. He shall not destroy the fruits of your ground.
  • 00:12:44.020 --> 00:12:47.130
  • Neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the
  • 00:12:47.140 --> 00:12:50.160
  • field. All nations shall call you blessed for you or delight
  • 00:12:50.170 --> 00:12:53.250
  • some land. That is the benefit of the tithers, tither's rights.
  • 00:12:53.260 --> 00:12:57.230
  • GLORIA: Give us that reference. GEORGE: Malachi 3:10-12, Malachi
  • 00:12:57.240 --> 00:13:04.180
  • 3:10-12. So being a tither, it opens the windows of Heaven to
  • 00:13:04.190 --> 00:13:08.190
  • pour out a blessing on you that you can't even contain. That
  • 00:13:08.200 --> 00:13:12.200
  • means every bill paid. That means every debt wiped out. That
  • 00:13:12.210 --> 00:13:16.050
  • means more than enough, too much overflow. We want to live in the
  • 00:13:16.060 --> 00:13:22.090
  • overflow and that's the will of God for us to live in the
  • 00:13:22.100 --> 00:13:26.030
  • overflew. So Covenant, we're in covenant with him and in the
  • 00:13:26.040 --> 00:13:30.240
  • scripture that I read to you there at the top, it says the
  • 00:13:30.250 --> 00:13:33.160
  • eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to
  • 00:13:33.170 --> 00:13:37.010
  • show himself strong in behalf of those who hearts are turned
  • 00:13:37.020 --> 00:13:41.100
  • towards him. Gloria, I looked up that word, those for that
  • 00:13:41.110 --> 00:13:45.150
  • phrase, show himself strong in the Hebrew and it means to
  • 00:13:45.160 --> 00:13:49.120
  • bestow, to grant and to extend wealth to bestow, grant and
  • 00:13:49.130 --> 00:13:59.150
  • extend wealth. So really you could read 2 Chronicles 16:9
  • 00:13:59.160 --> 00:14:04.170
  • like this, for the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout
  • 00:14:04.180 --> 00:14:08.120
  • the whole earth to show himself strong, for him to bestow, grant
  • 00:14:08.130 --> 00:14:13.140
  • and extend wealth in behalf of them whose heart is perfect
  • 00:14:13.150 --> 00:14:18.160
  • towards him. GLORIA: I thought about that. GEORGE: And tell me
  • 00:14:18.170 --> 00:14:21.240
  • your thought. GLORIA: Why are his eyes going to and fro over
  • 00:14:21.250 --> 00:14:27.210
  • the whole earth? He wants to bestow wealth, he's looking for
  • 00:14:27.220 --> 00:14:32.160
  • somebody that qualifies somebody looking for somebody whose heart
  • 00:14:32.170 --> 00:14:36.270
  • is turned toward him. I mean, you know, sometimes money sends
  • 00:14:36.280 --> 00:14:41.290
  • you their own way to the right way. If you've got the wrong
  • 00:14:42.000 --> 00:14:45.040
  • heart, it's dangerous to have money, do whatever bad thing you
  • 00:14:45.050 --> 00:14:48.220
  • want to do. But God looks for one whose heart, who's, who's a
  • 00:14:48.230 --> 00:14:52.230
  • good investment will do what he knows is right to do anymore. It
  • 00:14:52.240 --> 00:14:56.060
  • won't run this life. GEORGE: You just said something there. That
  • 00:14:56.070 --> 00:15:00.090
  • is a good investment. Hmm. He's looking for someone who's a good
  • 00:15:00.100 --> 00:15:05.240
  • investment. GLORIA: Who will do what he says. GEORGE: Who will
  • 00:15:05.250 --> 00:15:08.080
  • do what he says and respond in obedience to him GLORIA: It's
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:12.220
  • really a, it's really our blessing that it requires
  • 00:15:12.230 --> 00:15:17.270
  • obedience to be blessed. It gives us an incentive, I like to
  • 00:15:17.280 --> 00:15:23.190
  • be blessed. GEORGE: If you'd be willing and obedient, you will
  • 00:15:23.200 --> 00:15:27.030
  • eat the good of the land. That's it right there. That's the key
  • 00:15:27.040 --> 00:15:31.260
  • to that. So the, we have to be obedient to him. The Lord is
  • 00:15:31.270 --> 00:15:35.060
  • searching out the earth for people to bless. His eyes are
  • 00:15:35.070 --> 00:15:40.270
  • going to and fro, he's going to and fro so that he can whole
  • 00:15:40.280 --> 00:15:46.120
  • earth and he wants to extend wealth. That's what that means
  • 00:15:46.130 --> 00:15:49.110
  • in the Hebrew to extend wealth to us. He wants to extend wealth
  • 00:15:49.120 --> 00:15:53.290
  • to you, but we have to be receivers. He the reason too
  • 00:15:54.000 --> 00:15:57.260
  • that he's, his eyes are running to and fro throughout the whole
  • 00:15:57.270 --> 00:16:01.070
  • earth. He's looking for faith. People who believe, who believe
  • 00:16:01.080 --> 00:16:03.160
  • in receive. He's looking for receivers and I like what
  • 00:16:03.170 --> 00:16:08.050
  • Brother Copeland has been doing recently about are you, are you
  • 00:16:08.060 --> 00:16:12.260
  • ready to receive? Um, I'm looking for somebody who's open
  • 00:16:12.270 --> 00:16:16.090
  • to throw that football too. And you know, I'm looking for
  • 00:16:16.100 --> 00:16:18.220
  • somebody open. You have to be open. You have to be open to
  • 00:16:18.230 --> 00:16:23.120
  • receive the benefits that he wants to be starting. GLORIA: In
  • 00:16:23.130 --> 00:16:26.170
  • other words, if somebody throws you.... You know how much I know
  • 00:16:26.180 --> 00:16:29.010
  • about football, but if somebody throws you a pass, you're
  • 00:16:29.020 --> 00:16:34.000
  • supposed be like this. You're like this. You miss it. GEORGE:
  • 00:16:34.010 --> 00:16:38.190
  • You'll get hit in the head and put off the team or you'll miss
  • 00:16:38.200 --> 00:16:42.210
  • it. It'll fly right by you. Prosperity will fly right by
  • 00:16:42.220 --> 00:16:45.250
  • you. Yeah. So we have to be in a receiving position, a receiving
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:50.250
  • position because he is looking for people to bless. GLORIA:
  • 00:16:50.260 --> 00:16:54.230
  • Just like the quarterback looks for receiver. He's got to have a
  • 00:16:54.240 --> 00:16:59.180
  • receiver. GEORGE: He's got to have a receiver. Are you a
  • 00:16:59.190 --> 00:17:01.280
  • receiver? That's the big question. I'm a receiver. You're
  • 00:17:01.290 --> 00:17:04.250
  • a receiver. We are receiving what he wants to do for us. Let
  • 00:17:04.260 --> 00:17:08.250
  • me read Deuteronomy 8:18 it says, God gives the power to get
  • 00:17:08.260 --> 00:17:13.020
  • wealth in order to establish his covenant with us and his
  • 00:17:13.030 --> 00:17:17.150
  • Covenant on Earth. He gives us the power to get wealth. What?
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:21.230
  • To establish that covenant. Wealth is part of the covenant
  • 00:17:21.240 --> 00:17:26.060
  • that he wants to bestow upon us. It always has been- GLORIA: What
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:29.290
  • about the garden. What about the garden of Eden? There was no
  • 00:17:30.000 --> 00:17:33.110
  • lack there and everything. It was all sufficient. And they
  • 00:17:33.120 --> 00:17:39.080
  • blew it. They blew it. It was their choice. Not God's choice.
  • 00:17:39.090 --> 00:17:43.280
  • He made everything- GEORGE: We don't want to blow it. No. We
  • 00:17:43.290 --> 00:17:47.150
  • want to be receivers of the goodness of God and I know that
  • 00:17:47.160 --> 00:17:51.270
  • even right now, the Lord is dealing with you, that you are
  • 00:17:51.280 --> 00:17:55.010
  • laying down the care and the worry of the finances and you're
  • 00:17:55.020 --> 00:17:58.120
  • being the receiver. He wants you to receive. You receive from him
  • 00:17:58.130 --> 00:18:01.290
  • right now, all that he wants to do for you. I'll tell you, if
  • 00:18:02.000 --> 00:18:06.020
  • you're a giver and a tither, it makes a huge difference, a huge
  • 00:18:06.030 --> 00:18:10.170
  • difference- GLORIA: What are you doing? You're just getting in
  • 00:18:10.180 --> 00:18:13.100
  • line with God so he can, so you'll be in position. Yep. A
  • 00:18:13.110 --> 00:18:17.140
  • receiver has got to be in position to receive. I think
  • 00:18:17.150 --> 00:18:22.060
  • about John John, you know he's, he's such a great pass. Oh yeah.
  • 00:18:22.070 --> 00:18:25.150
  • And they'll put it right in your pocket. He put that ball right
  • 00:18:25.160 --> 00:18:28.040
  • in your pocket. But John, John's not daydreaming. He's looking.
  • 00:18:28.050 --> 00:18:33.270
  • He's watching for that ball and that's what we've got to do.
  • 00:18:33.280 --> 00:18:37.220
  • We've got to pay attention. GEORGE: We have to do that. Let
  • 00:18:37.230 --> 00:18:40.040
  • me read one more scripture before we're done. Um, Psalm
  • 00:18:40.050 --> 00:18:43.130
  • 34:10 and look, I'll tell you what, look at your second page.
  • 00:18:43.140 --> 00:18:46.090
  • The people are going to have to download it in your second page
  • 00:18:46.100 --> 00:18:49.000
  • here. Is that it? Those are all those scriptures. But let me
  • 00:18:49.010 --> 00:18:51.190
  • just read. These are covenant provision Scriptures. You need
  • 00:18:51.200 --> 00:18:54.060
  • to get these, you need to download these. But Psalm 34:10,
  • 00:18:54.070 --> 00:18:58.220
  • this is all we have time for. The young lions do lack and
  • 00:18:58.230 --> 00:19:02.070
  • suffer hunger, but they, that seek the Lord shall not want
  • 00:19:02.080 --> 00:19:05.220
  • anything good thing. GLORIA: They're a receiver, they're
  • 00:19:05.230 --> 00:19:11.220
  • watching for the ball. They're not asleep somewhere. That's
  • 00:19:11.230 --> 00:19:16.000
  • good George. Great. Hallelujah. George and I'll be right back.
  • 00:19:16.010 --> 00:19:20.110
  • BECKY HAAS: One of the things about the grant, the $800.000
  • 00:19:26.060 --> 00:19:28.180
  • crime projection grant, it was to work on four, um, four
  • 00:19:28.190 --> 00:19:33.240
  • pillars to reduce drug related and violent crime in Johnson
  • 00:19:33.250 --> 00:19:37.230
  • city. And it was to look at two neighborhoods that historically
  • 00:19:37.240 --> 00:19:41.090
  • had that high, that those highest rates of crime. So in
  • 00:19:41.100 --> 00:19:44.200
  • creating this program, um, I had to get the buy in of the judges.
  • 00:19:44.210 --> 00:19:48.100
  • It's a program that is for felony offenders with addiction.
  • 00:19:48.110 --> 00:19:52.080
  • So those were the qualifiers. Um, so, um, we started this
  • 00:19:52.090 --> 00:19:56.240
  • program and then the judges wanted it to be like a prison
  • 00:19:56.250 --> 00:19:59.280
  • diversion. So instead of sending somebody back when they violated
  • 00:19:59.290 --> 00:20:03.060
  • probation back to prison, they would come into this day
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:06.000
  • reporting center. And so when we created this program, um, the
  • 00:20:06.010 --> 00:20:10.160
  • judges wanted it to last a whole year, 12 to 15 months, and they
  • 00:20:10.170 --> 00:20:14.280
  • cut the people come 20 hours a day. So we kind of created like
  • 00:20:14.290 --> 00:20:17.220
  • a little college. I needed 11 facilitators and I only had
  • 00:20:17.230 --> 00:20:21.190
  • money to pay for two in my grant. And so I hired a
  • 00:20:21.200 --> 00:20:25.070
  • director. I had money to pay for rent and a building and
  • 00:20:25.080 --> 00:20:28.110
  • literature, the courses that we were going to teach them on drug
  • 00:20:28.120 --> 00:20:31.210
  • recovery and relapse prevention, that kind of thing. And I, and I
  • 00:20:31.220 --> 00:20:35.020
  • hired a therapist from our mental health partner, but now I
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:38.070
  • needed nine more people that would show up working a job that
  • 00:20:38.080 --> 00:20:41.100
  • I wasn't going to pay them. And one by one by one we lined up
  • 00:20:41.110 --> 00:20:45.190
  • people that came and ran that program. And so at the end of my
  • 00:20:45.200 --> 00:20:49.140
  • grant in 2016 as the director, I had to find subsequent funding
  • 00:20:49.150 --> 00:20:54.210
  • for it. And so, um, my grant manager in Nashville said, why
  • 00:20:54.220 --> 00:20:59.010
  • don't we run a cost benefit on what this program? Because the
  • 00:20:59.020 --> 00:21:03.050
  • Department of Corrections, the Tennessee Department of
  • 00:21:03.060 --> 00:21:05.150
  • corrections is who supervise these individuals on probation.
  • 00:21:05.160 --> 00:21:08.260
  • So when we ran a cost benefit, because of all that was being
  • 00:21:08.270 --> 00:21:13.000
  • done that we weren't paying for, it was $12 a day to be in that
  • 00:21:13.010 --> 00:21:16.220
  • program instead of $74 a day to be in jail. So we sent that to
  • 00:21:16.230 --> 00:21:20.230
  • the commissioner of the state and they immediately responded,
  • 00:21:20.240 --> 00:21:24.020
  • we want that program. And so we had created a program through a
  • 00:21:24.030 --> 00:21:28.290
  • woman with the blessing, but no knowledge of criminal justice or
  • 00:21:29.000 --> 00:21:32.050
  • knowing what recidivism is. I'm a program that was saving them,
  • 00:21:32.060 --> 00:21:35.220
  • um, 50 to $60 a day on each of those individuals. So the
  • 00:21:35.230 --> 00:21:41.070
  • recidivism rate in Tennessee is one to three years when
  • 00:21:41.080 --> 00:21:45.050
  • someone's released within one to three years, 48 to 50% that
  • 00:21:45.060 --> 00:21:49.130
  • they'll go right back. And if those that have graduated from
  • 00:21:49.140 --> 00:21:52.220
