  • 00:04:10.196 --> 00:04:11.464
  • When He says it's holy,He doesn't mean
  • 00:04:11.464 --> 00:04:13.866
  • He doesn't meanjust like holiness.
  • 00:04:13.866 --> 00:04:15.535

  • And He said if anybodytakes that tithe --
  • 00:04:24.143 --> 00:04:25.144

  • 00:04:32.485 --> 00:04:34.187
  • and you use it, He said,if you want to get right,
  • 00:04:34.187 --> 00:04:35.054
  • if you want to get right,then you have to bring

  • the point is this.It's so much mine
  • 00:04:41.527 --> 00:04:43.062
  • It's so much minethat I want you to understand
  • 00:04:43.062 --> 00:04:45.698

  • you interest.And He says the interest
  • 00:04:49.635 --> 00:04:50.470
  • And He says the interestwill be one-fifth,
  • 00:04:50.470 --> 00:04:52.372

  • but He's emphasizing the point.He's emphasizing the point
  • 00:05:01.581 --> 00:05:04.016
  • He's emphasizing the pointthat it's mine, so much so
  • 00:05:04.016 --> 00:05:05.818

  • you interest if you don'thonor me with it.
  • 00:05:11.457 --> 00:05:13.693
  • honor me with it.He goes on to say, in Verse 32,
  • 00:05:13.693 --> 00:05:14.894
  • He goes on to say, in Verse 32,"And concerning the tithe
  • 00:05:14.894 --> 00:05:16.329
  • "And concerning the titheof the herd or the flock

  • Ten chickens, here's the grain,take it out.
  • 00:05:51.731 --> 00:05:53.866

  • 00:05:53.866 --> 00:05:55.968
  • This is how serious Godwas about it.
  • 00:05:55.968 --> 00:05:59.205
  • was about it.The reason that He says I want
  • 00:05:59.205 --> 00:06:02.642
  • The reason that He says I wantthis percentage, this 10%,
  • 00:06:02.642 --> 00:06:04.410
  • this percentage, this 10%,is because 10 is symbolic --
  • 00:06:04.410 --> 00:06:05.378
  • is because 10 is symbolic --listen very carefully,
  • 00:06:05.378 --> 00:06:06.679
  • listen very carefully,of the whole.
  • 00:06:06.679 --> 00:06:09.682
  • of the whole.Our numerical system teaches
  • 00:06:09.682 --> 00:06:11.451
  • Our numerical system teachesin terms of 10.
  • 00:06:11.451 --> 00:06:12.785
  • in terms of 10.If you can count to 10,
  • 00:06:12.785 --> 00:06:14.287
  • If you can count to 10,you can count to 100.
  • 00:06:14.287 --> 00:06:15.655
  • you can count to 100.If you can count to 10,
  • 00:06:15.655 --> 00:06:17.423
  • If you can count to 10,you can count to 1.000.000,
  • 00:06:17.423 --> 00:06:19.492
  • you can count to 1.000.000,because all you do after 10
  • 00:06:19.492 --> 00:06:21.494
  • because all you do after 10is repeat again.
  • 00:06:21.494 --> 00:06:23.262
  • is repeat again.So, the way you get to 100
  • 00:06:23.262 --> 00:06:24.764
  • So, the way you get to 100is you count to 10,
  • 00:06:24.764 --> 00:06:26.032
  • is you count to 10,and then you start over again
  • 00:06:26.032 --> 00:06:28.634
  • and then you start over againwith 1 at 21, 22,
  • 00:06:28.634 --> 00:06:31.304
  • with 1 at 21, 22,and then you get to 30, 31.
  • 00:06:31.304 --> 00:06:32.772
  • and then you get to 30, 31.You're counting to 10 again.
  • 00:06:32.772 --> 00:06:35.074
  • You're counting to 10 again.And so, everything comes
  • 00:06:35.074 --> 00:06:37.443
  • And so, everything comesout of the 10.
  • 00:06:37.443 --> 00:06:39.645
  • out of the 10.The genius of God, when He said
  • 00:06:39.645 --> 00:06:42.548
  • The genius of God, when He saidI want the 10, is He's saying
  • 00:06:42.548 --> 00:06:46.185
  • I want the 10, is He's sayingthe 90% is in the 10%,

  • and if you honor mewith the 10%, I'll see it as
  • 00:06:49.989 --> 00:06:52.158

  • 00:07:04.103 --> 00:07:08.808
  • I'm saying today that we needto understand that it is not
  • 00:07:08.808 --> 00:07:12.011
  • to understand that it is notthe amount, it is the fact

  • and he wanted to bring this gifthome to her when he got
  • 00:07:31.464 --> 00:07:32.965
  • home to her when he gothome from this trip.
  • 00:07:32.965 --> 00:07:34.934
  • home from this trip.So, he picked it out,
  • 00:07:34.934 --> 00:07:35.601
  • So, he picked it out,and he bought it,
  • 00:07:35.601 --> 00:07:36.502
