  • 00:04:06.993 --> 00:04:08.261
  • When He says it's holy,He doesn't mean
  • 00:04:08.261 --> 00:04:10.663
  • He doesn't meanjust like holiness.
  • 00:04:10.663 --> 00:04:12.332

  • And He said if anybodytakes that tithe --
  • 00:04:20.940 --> 00:04:21.941

  • 00:04:29.282 --> 00:04:30.983
  • and you use it, He said,if you want to get right,
  • 00:04:30.983 --> 00:04:31.851
  • if you want to get right,then you have to bring

  • the point is this.It's so much mine
  • 00:04:38.324 --> 00:04:39.859
  • It's so much minethat I want you to understand
  • 00:04:39.859 --> 00:04:42.495

  • you interest.And He says the interest
  • 00:04:46.432 --> 00:04:47.266
  • And He says the interestwill be one-fifth,
  • 00:04:47.266 --> 00:04:49.168

  • That's old covenant.God doesn't make us live
  • 00:04:51.471 --> 00:04:52.472
  • God doesn't make us liveunder that,

  • but He's emphasizing the point.He's emphasizing the point
  • 00:04:58.378 --> 00:05:00.813
  • He's emphasizing the pointthat it's mine, so much so
  • 00:05:00.813 --> 00:05:02.615

  • 00:05:08.254 --> 00:05:10.490
  • honor me with it.He goes on to say, in Verse 32,
  • 00:05:10.490 --> 00:05:11.691
  • He goes on to say, in Verse 32,"And concerning the tithe
  • 00:05:11.691 --> 00:05:13.126
  • "And concerning the titheof the herd or the flock

  • Ten chickens, here's the grain,take it out.

  • 00:05:50.663 --> 00:05:52.765
  • This is how serious Godwas about it.
  • 00:05:52.765 --> 00:05:56.002
  • was about it.The reason that He says I want
  • 00:05:56.002 --> 00:05:59.439
  • The reason that He says I wantthis percentage, this 10%,
  • 00:05:59.439 --> 00:06:01.207
  • this percentage, this 10%,is because 10 is symbolic --
  • 00:06:01.207 --> 00:06:02.175
  • is because 10 is symbolic --listen very carefully,
  • 00:06:02.175 --> 00:06:03.476
  • listen very carefully,of the whole.
  • 00:06:03.476 --> 00:06:06.479
  • of the whole.Our numerical system teaches
  • 00:06:06.479 --> 00:06:08.247
  • Our numerical system teachesin terms of 10.
  • 00:06:08.247 --> 00:06:09.582
  • in terms of 10.If you can count to 10,
  • 00:06:09.582 --> 00:06:11.083
  • If you can count to 10,you can count to 100.
  • 00:06:11.083 --> 00:06:12.452
  • you can count to 100.If you can count to 10,
  • 00:06:12.452 --> 00:06:14.220
  • If you can count to 10,you can count to 1.000.000,
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:16.289
  • you can count to 1.000.000,because all you do after 10
  • 00:06:16.289 --> 00:06:18.291
  • because all you do after 10is repeat again.
  • 00:06:18.291 --> 00:06:20.059
  • is repeat again.So, the way you get to 100
  • 00:06:20.059 --> 00:06:21.561
  • So, the way you get to 100is you count to 10,
  • 00:06:21.561 --> 00:06:22.829
  • is you count to 10,and then you start over again
  • 00:06:22.829 --> 00:06:25.431
  • and then you start over againwith 1 at 21, 22,
  • 00:06:25.431 --> 00:06:28.100
  • with 1 at 21, 22,and then you get to 30, 31.
  • 00:06:28.100 --> 00:06:29.569
  • and then you get to 30, 31.You're counting to 10 again.
  • 00:06:29.569 --> 00:06:31.871
  • You're counting to 10 again.And so, everything comes
  • 00:06:31.871 --> 00:06:34.240
  • And so, everything comesout of the 10.
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:36.442
  • out of the 10.The genius of God, when He said
  • 00:06:36.442 --> 00:06:39.345
  • The genius of God, when He saidI want the 10, is He's saying
  • 00:06:39.345 --> 00:06:42.982
  • 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
  • 00:06:46.786 --> 00:06:48.955

  • 00:07:00.900 --> 00:07:05.605
  • I'm saying today that we needto understand that it is not
  • 00:07:05.605 --> 00:07:08.808
  • to understand that it is notthe amount, it is the fact
  • 00:07:08.808 --> 00:07:10.309

  • 00:07:28.261 --> 00:07:29.762
  • home to her when he gothome from this trip.
  • 00:07:29.762 --> 00:07:31.731
  • home from this trip.So, he picked it out,
  • 00:07:31.731 --> 00:07:32.398
  • So, he picked it out,and he bought it,
