  • ROBERT MORRIS: We get hung up a lot on 10%
  • 00:00:01.100 --> 00:00:01.110
  • ROBERT MORRIS: We get hung up a lot on 10%.
  • 00:00:01.110 --> 00:00:02.140
  • It's not so much that it's 10%, it's the first 10%.
  • 00:00:02.170 --> 00:00:05.080
  • And I don't know why God chose 10%, other than I think
  • 00:00:05.110 --> 00:00:08.180
  • it's just easy for every person.
  • 00:00:08.210 --> 00:00:11.140
  • And it's the same.
  • 00:00:11.170 --> 00:00:13.060
  • It's equal.
  • 00:00:13.090 --> 00:00:14.160
  • Do you realize that?
  • 00:00:14.190 --> 00:00:15.180
  • 00:00:15.210 --> 00:00:30.250
  • ROBERT: And so I want to talk about "Who's the Owner?"
  • 00:00:30.280 --> 00:00:32.100
  • And here's the reason why:
  • 00:00:32.130 --> 00:00:33.260
  • This is the foundation to living a blessed life,
  • 00:00:33.290 --> 00:00:36.030
  • and remember, a blessed life is a life that blesses.
  • 00:00:36.060 --> 00:00:39.080
  • Please remember that.
  • 00:00:39.110 --> 00:00:40.150
  • Please don't ever confuse what I share with materialism
  • 00:00:40.180 --> 00:00:46.220
  • or a hyper-prosperity message.
  • 00:00:46.250 --> 00:00:48.200
  • Please never confuse that, because that is not my goal at all.
  • 00:00:48.230 --> 00:00:52.180
  • I want us to live a life where we can be a blessing.
  • 00:00:52.210 --> 00:00:55.290
  • And so, to live a life that's blessed,
  • 00:00:56.020 --> 00:00:59.100
  • and a life that's even beyond blessed,
  • 00:00:59.130 --> 00:01:02.010
  • there's a foundation, and that's what we will talk about,
  • 00:01:02.040 --> 00:01:05.190
  • and it is the foundation of ownership.
  • 00:01:05.220 --> 00:01:09.090
  • If I told you I was going to preach on stewardship,
  • 00:01:09.120 --> 00:01:12.110
  • you might have a tendency to kind of tune me out,
  • 00:01:12.140 --> 00:01:18.180
  • and to say, yes, I know about stewardship, Pastor,
  • 00:01:18.210 --> 00:01:20.260
  • I've heard messages on stewardship.
  • 00:01:20.290 --> 00:01:23.130
  • But it's not just stewardship we're going to talk about,
  • 00:01:23.160 --> 00:01:27.120
  • it's the foundation of even stewardship,
  • 00:01:27.150 --> 00:01:29.070
  • and that's ownership, because you'll never
  • 00:01:29.100 --> 00:01:32.250
  • be a good steward if you don't understand
  • 00:01:32.280 --> 00:01:35.120
  • who the owner actually is.
  • 00:01:35.150 --> 00:01:38.180
  • When my daughter, Elaine, went to college --
  • 00:01:38.210 --> 00:01:42.200
  • she's right down here.
  • 00:01:42.230 --> 00:01:44.090
  • She went to ORU.
  • 00:01:44.120 --> 00:01:46.050
  • And when Josh and James went to school,
  • 00:01:46.080 --> 00:01:49.150
  • Josh went to school in Florida, James went to Baylor,
  • 00:01:49.180 --> 00:01:52.220
  • I linked their accounts with my account and just,
  • 00:01:52.250 --> 00:01:58.030
  • would just wire money, you know, every month.
  • 00:01:58.060 --> 00:02:01.020
  • And when Elaine went, I just gave her a credit card
  • 00:02:01.050 --> 00:02:06.030
  • and just said put things on the credit card.
  • 00:02:06.060 --> 00:02:08.240
  • I remember getting that first bill.
  • 00:02:08.270 --> 00:02:11.030
  • [laughter]
  • 00:02:11.060 --> 00:02:15.220
  • And realizing that, you know, a 5'6", 110 pound woman
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:22.040
  • could not eat that much.
  • 00:02:22.070 --> 00:02:25.030
  • And so, I called and I said, "Are you buying meals,
  • 00:02:25.060 --> 00:02:30.080
  • or gas, or" --
  • 00:02:30.110 --> 00:02:33.050
  • because there were gas station, you know, bills that her
  • 00:02:33.080 --> 00:02:37.290
  • Toyota Corolla couldn't hold that much gas.
  • 00:02:38.020 --> 00:02:40.170
  • And I said, "Are you buying meals and gas
  • 00:02:40.200 --> 00:02:42.260
  • for your friends?"
  • 00:02:42.290 --> 00:02:44.120
  • This is what she said to me.
  • 00:02:44.150 --> 00:02:45.160
  • She said, "Dad, you taught me to be a giver."
  • 00:02:45.190 --> 00:02:49.060
  • [laughter]
  • 00:02:49.090 --> 00:02:55.040
  • I said, "Sugar, that's not giving, that's called stealing,
  • 00:02:55.070 --> 00:03:02.220
  • because you're not the owner.
  • 00:03:02.250 --> 00:03:07.030
  • You're giving my money away.
  • 00:03:07.060 --> 00:03:08.230
  • That's my money."
  • 00:03:08.260 --> 00:03:11.190
  • So, let's talk about a few things, all right?
  • 00:03:11.220 --> 00:03:13.250
  • Here's number one.
  • 00:03:13.280 --> 00:03:15.210
  • It all belongs to God.
  • 00:03:15.240 --> 00:03:21.020
  • Not just a tithe, it all belongs to God.
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:26.020
  • Psalm 24:1 says, "The earth is the Lord's."
  • 00:03:26.050 --> 00:03:32.240
  • Please notice those words.
  • 00:03:32.270 --> 00:03:35.180
  • He owns it, "is the Lord's."
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:39.090
  • "And," in case you have any doubt, "everything in it."
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:45.190
  • "Everything in it, the world and all its people,"
  • 00:03:45.220 --> 00:03:52.140
  • now watch ownership, "belong to Him."
  • 00:03:52.170 --> 00:03:57.240
  • Belong to Him.
  • 00:03:57.270 --> 00:03:59.290
  • Psalm 50:10, "For every beast of the forest is Mine."
  • 00:04:00.040 --> 00:04:07.130
  • I own 'em.
  • 00:04:07.160 --> 00:04:08.190
  • I own all of 'em.
  • 00:04:08.220 --> 00:04:10.210
  • "And the cattle on a thousand hills."
  • 00:04:10.240 --> 00:04:13.110
  • Of course, the cattle and the hills.
  • 00:04:13.140 --> 00:04:16.060
  • "I know all the birds of the mountains,
  • 00:04:16.090 --> 00:04:18.270
  • and the wild beasts of the field are Mine."
  • 00:04:19.000 --> 00:04:22.290
  • They're Mine.
  • 00:04:23.020 --> 00:04:23.270
  • They belong to Me.
  • 00:04:24.000 --> 00:04:24.210
  • They're My property.
  • 00:04:24.240 --> 00:04:26.060
  • I love this statement.
  • 00:04:26.090 --> 00:04:28.000
  • This is one of my favorite statements in the whole Bible.
  • 00:04:28.030 --> 00:04:29.220
  • "If I were hungry, I wouldn't tell you."
  • 00:04:29.250 --> 00:04:35.270
  • 'Cause you don't own any of the animals, I do.
  • 00:04:36.000 --> 00:04:39.050
  • "For the world is Mine, and all its fullness."
  • 00:04:39.080 --> 00:04:50.000
  • This is a revelation you have to get.
  • 00:04:50.030 --> 00:04:53.150
  • You have to get that you can work for it, you can earn it,
  • 00:04:53.180 --> 00:04:58.140
  • your name can be on the deed, but if you're a believer,
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:05:03.250
  • then you really understand it's God's.
  • 00:05:03.280 --> 00:05:06.240
  • That's why, when God tells you to give something,
  • 00:05:06.270 --> 00:05:10.080
  • you don't grieve over it.
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:12.100
  • It doesn't bother you at all.
  • 00:05:12.130 --> 00:05:14.180
  • Now, you know my wife and I like to give cars to people
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:18.010
  • when we can and when the Lord speaks to us to,
  • 00:05:18.040 --> 00:05:21.110
  • and we went through a season where it just seemed
  • 00:05:21.140 --> 00:05:23.200
  • like we were giving -- we gave, I think --
  • 00:05:23.230 --> 00:05:26.240
  • I don't want to say something that is not true.
  • 00:05:26.270 --> 00:05:31.090
  • For some reason, I think we gave away nine cars
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:34.120
  • in eighteen months.
  • 00:05:34.150 --> 00:05:36.130
  • And, there was a couple in our church that said, hey,
  • 00:05:36.160 --> 00:05:40.230
  • we'd like to give a car to this family that needs it,
  • 00:05:40.260 --> 00:05:46.080
  • and we heard that you give cars away.
  • 00:05:46.110 --> 00:05:49.080
  • And so, they gave it to us.
  • 00:05:49.110 --> 00:05:51.190
  • Now, it takes a little while to transfer the title,
  • 00:05:51.220 --> 00:05:54.040
  • and I had found a way that you wouldn't have to wait six weeks,
  • 00:05:54.070 --> 00:05:57.020
  • that you could actually transfer the title in 24 hours
  • 00:05:57.050 --> 00:05:59.290
  • and do it that way, you know, and some of you know about that.
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:02.100
  • And so, I transferred the title over and I had the thought,
  • 00:06:02.130 --> 00:06:07.090
  • I'm gonna drive the car over to a mechanic just to make sure
  • 00:06:07.120 --> 00:06:10.040
  • nothing's wrong.
  • 00:06:10.070 --> 00:06:11.080
  • I don't want the family to have a bill and it's,
  • 00:06:11.110 --> 00:06:12.180
  • you know, something to take care of it.
  • 00:06:12.210 --> 00:06:14.000
  • On the way to the mechanic, the engine went out.
  • 00:06:14.030 --> 00:06:19.270
  • I got it towed to the mechanic, and the mechanic said
  • 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:25.150
  • the whole engine's gone, cracked the block,
  • 00:06:25.180 --> 00:06:28.030
  • and it would take about $2.000 to fix it,
  • 00:06:28.060 --> 00:06:31.230
  • and this was in the 80s.
  • 00:06:31.260 --> 00:06:33.060
  • And so, I told him, well, go ahead and do it.
  • 00:06:33.090 --> 00:06:36.120
  • Now, I'm driving away and I'm pretty honest with the Lord.
  • 00:06:36.150 --> 00:06:40.200
  • He can handle it, He's very secure.
  • 00:06:40.230 --> 00:06:42.260
  • I don't know if you've noticed that.
  • 00:06:42.290 --> 00:06:44.070
  • But, so I said to the Lord, "This is too much
  • 00:06:44.100 --> 00:06:49.010
  • of a coincidence, you know?
  • 00:06:49.040 --> 00:06:51.240
  • They owned it yesterday.
  • 00:06:51.270 --> 00:06:55.040
  • The other family's gonna own it tomorrow.
  • 00:06:55.070 --> 00:06:58.140
  • I own it one day, one day, and the engine goes out."
  • 00:06:58.170 --> 00:07:08.060
  • And I'll never forget what the Lord said to me.
  • 00:07:08.090 --> 00:07:09.160
  • He said, "The family that was giving it didn't have
  • 00:07:09.190 --> 00:07:11.140
  • the money to fix it.
  • 00:07:11.170 --> 00:07:13.120
  • The family that was receiving it didn't have
  • 00:07:13.150 --> 00:07:15.050
  • the money to fix it.
  • 00:07:15.080 --> 00:07:17.160
  • You have the money because I gave it to you,
  • 00:07:17.190 --> 00:07:21.060
  • and I can stop giving it to you anytime you want Me to."
  • 00:07:21.090 --> 00:07:29.100
  • And He was strong about it.
  • 00:07:29.130 --> 00:07:32.060
  • And I said, "No, that's okay!
  • 00:07:32.090 --> 00:07:34.030
  • That's okay!
  • 00:07:34.060 --> 00:07:36.210
  • If you want me to do this, I'll do it."
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:38.030
  • Okay, but when you understand it's all God's,
  • 00:07:38.060 --> 00:07:42.240
  • then you understand the money that I do have in the account,
  • 00:07:42.270 --> 00:07:46.180
  • I didn't get it because I preached
  • 00:07:46.210 --> 00:07:47.280
  • an extra meeting that month, 'cause that was my income
  • 00:07:48.010 --> 00:07:50.180
  • was preaching back then, and traveling and doing
  • 00:07:50.210 --> 00:07:53.090
  • speaking things.
  • 00:07:53.120 --> 00:07:54.210
  • I didn't get it because of that, I got it because God
  • 00:07:54.240 --> 00:07:56.110
  • gave it to me so I could be a blessing!
  • 00:07:56.140 --> 00:08:02.000
  • When God puts that in your heart, everything I have is
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:05.190
  • God's, that's why if God says give it away,
  • 00:08:05.220 --> 00:08:07.100
  • you don't grieve, you're not upset about it,
  • 00:08:07.130 --> 00:08:10.040
  • because it's not yours in the first place!
  • 00:08:10.070 --> 00:08:12.220
  • This is something that you've got to get.
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:14.150
  • It's got to get down deeply in your heart.
  • 00:08:14.180 --> 00:08:18.060
  • When Josh went to Florida to college, he went to Florida.
  • 00:08:18.090 --> 00:08:22.090
  • And so, we worked out a budget, how much.
  • 00:08:22.120 --> 00:08:26.010
  • He had to live off campus, so we found an apartment online.
  • 00:08:26.040 --> 00:08:30.060
  • When we got there, we found out pictures online
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:32.060
  • look different than pictures -- anyone ever done that?
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:36.250
  • This is the house.
  • 00:08:36.280 --> 00:08:37.260
  • This is the house.
  • 00:08:37.290 --> 00:08:38.280
  • Oh, my gosh!
  • 00:08:39.010 --> 00:08:40.130
  • Okay, so we got this apartment, and we figured out gas, food,
  • 00:08:40.160 --> 00:08:45.240
  • all of the stuff.
  • 00:08:45.270 --> 00:08:47.030
  • So I said, I'll send you this much money every month,
  • 00:08:47.060 --> 00:08:50.170
  • and he knew it was a huge sacrifice to us.
  • 00:08:50.200 --> 00:08:52.250
  • Now, Josh is almost 37 years old, so we're talkin'
  • 00:08:52.280 --> 00:08:57.080
  • at least 17, 18 years ago.
  • 00:08:57.110 --> 00:08:59.150
  • And you know, no books at that point,
  • 00:08:59.180 --> 00:09:02.040
  • so it was a huge sacrifice for me.
  • 00:09:02.070 --> 00:09:04.030
  • And so, we did it, and after a few months,
  • 00:09:04.060 --> 00:09:08.040
  • he called and said, "Hey, Dad, you know these
  • 00:09:08.070 --> 00:09:12.000
  • two Christian guys that I've introduced you to,
  • 00:09:12.030 --> 00:09:14.020
  • and become close friends?"
  • 00:09:14.050 --> 00:09:15.220
  • So, good, solid believers.
  • 00:09:15.250 --> 00:09:17.160
  • "We've been looking.
  • 00:09:17.190 --> 00:09:18.190
  • We found an apartment we can move into.
  • 00:09:18.220 --> 00:09:20.190
  • Safer part of town, closer to the school,
  • 00:09:20.220 --> 00:09:24.130
  • and the three of us move in together and my expenses
  • 00:09:24.160 --> 00:09:28.180
  • would lower about $100 a month.
  • 00:09:28.210 --> 00:09:31.250
  • And I could save", here's what he said, "you $100 a month,"
  • 00:09:31.280 --> 00:09:37.010
  • 'cause he knew I was the one sending the money.
  • 00:09:37.040 --> 00:09:39.290
  • So he said, "I'd like to do that, if that's okay."
  • 00:09:40.020 --> 00:09:42.150
  • And I said, "I think that's great."
  • 00:09:42.180 --> 00:09:43.190
  • He said, "Well, you can cut what you're sending me
  • 00:09:43.220 --> 00:09:45.150
  • by $100 a month."
  • 00:09:45.180 --> 00:09:49.000
  • You know what I did?
  • 00:09:49.030 --> 00:09:51.000
  • Some of you say, well, you kept sending it.
  • 00:09:51.030 --> 00:09:52.150
  • No, I sent $100 more.
  • 00:09:52.180 --> 00:09:56.230
  • I started sending $100 more and I said to him,
  • 00:09:56.260 --> 00:09:58.280
  • "Son, here's what I want you to know.
  • 00:09:59.010 --> 00:10:01.240
  • God blesses good stewardship."
  • 00:10:01.270 --> 00:10:05.250
  • Now, please hear this.
  • 00:10:05.280 --> 00:10:07.140
  • This is the number one thing I want people
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:09.250
  • to get from "Beyond Blessed."
  • 00:10:09.280 --> 00:10:12.040
  • That's pretty important, what I just said, number one thing.
  • 00:10:12.070 --> 00:10:15.270
  • In the same way that people give and God
  • 00:10:16.000 --> 00:10:19.140
  • blesses supernaturally, when you become a good steward,
  • 00:10:19.170 --> 00:10:24.010
  • God blesses supernaturally.
  • 00:10:24.040 --> 00:10:26.200
  • There's a supernatural, miraculous element
  • 00:10:26.230 --> 00:10:30.170
  • from heaven on your finances.
  • 00:10:30.200 --> 00:10:32.020
  • It's not just that the numbers add up by doing a budget,
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:36.180
  • it's that God begins to bless you supernaturally.
  • 00:10:36.210 --> 00:10:39.290
  • If you think, man, if I give this offering to the church,
  • 00:10:40.020 --> 00:10:43.040
  • I know God's gonna bless me -- yes,
  • 00:10:43.070 --> 00:10:45.030
  • God does reward us when we give with the right heart.
  • 00:10:45.060 --> 00:10:48.030
  • But when you say I'm gonna get my finances in order,
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:51.020
  • I'm telling you, God'll bless you from places
  • 00:10:51.050 --> 00:10:53.110
  • you've never even seen.
  • 00:10:53.140 --> 00:10:54.250
  • So, number one you need to know, God owns it all.
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:10:57.170
  • Here's number two, the first belongs to God.
  • 00:10:57.200 --> 00:11:02.040
  • The first belongs to God.
  • 00:11:02.070 --> 00:11:06.170
  • Exodus 13, "The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
  • 00:11:06.200 --> 00:11:08.160
  • "Consecrate to me all the firstborn.
  • 00:11:08.190 --> 00:11:10.260
  • Whatever opens the womb among the children of Israel,
  • 00:11:10.290 --> 00:11:13.150
  • both the man and beast."
  • 00:11:13.180 --> 00:11:14.200
  • And I want you to notice.
  • 00:11:14.230 --> 00:11:16.080
  • I want you to notice, God's saying this.
  • 00:11:16.110 --> 00:11:17.280
  • By the way, this is the God who can't change,
  • 00:11:18.010 --> 00:11:20.140
  • who's the same yesterday, today, and forever.
  • 00:11:20.170 --> 00:11:23.160
  • "Both the man and beast, it is Mine."
  • 00:11:23.190 --> 00:11:29.260
  • It belongs to Me.
  • 00:11:29.290 --> 00:11:31.090
  • Now, we know it all belongs.
  • 00:11:31.120 --> 00:11:32.150
  • For some reason though, He set aside the first also.
  • 00:11:32.180 --> 00:11:35.260
  • Exodus 23:19, "The first of your first fruits."
  • 00:11:35.290 --> 00:11:40.060
  • That's for those of you who are hard of hearing,
  • 00:11:40.090 --> 00:11:44.110
  • not in the natural, in the spiritual.
  • 00:11:44.140 --> 00:11:47.250
  • "The first of your first fruits."
  • 00:11:47.280 --> 00:11:49.280
  • I've heard people say give your first fruits to God.
  • 00:11:50.010 --> 00:11:52.110
  • He never says that.
  • 00:11:52.140 --> 00:11:54.050
  • He says give the first of your first fruits.
  • 00:11:54.080 --> 00:11:57.040
  • In other words, give the tithe of your first fruits.
  • 00:11:57.070 --> 00:11:59.220
  • "The first of the first fruits of your land you shall bring
  • 00:11:59.250 --> 00:12:03.070
  • into the house of the Lord."
  • 00:12:03.100 --> 00:12:04.130
  • You know how I know the first fruits belong to God?
  • 00:12:04.160 --> 00:12:06.130
  • Because He didn't say you shall give them,
  • 00:12:06.160 --> 00:12:09.180
  • because if they were yours, you could give them.
  • 00:12:09.210 --> 00:12:11.290
  • But they're not yours, so you can only bring them
  • 00:12:12.020 --> 00:12:14.190
  • to the house of God.
  • 00:12:14.220 --> 00:12:16.020
  • Genesis 4, "And in the process of time."
  • 00:12:16.050 --> 00:12:19.140
  • Those words are very, very important.
  • 00:12:19.170 --> 00:12:22.130
  • "In the process of time, it came to pass,"
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:26.180
  • it just kind of happened over time,
  • 00:12:26.210 --> 00:12:28.170
  • "that Cain brought an offering."
  • 00:12:28.200 --> 00:12:31.180
  • "An offering," it does not say first,
  • 00:12:31.210 --> 00:12:34.270
  • "of the fruit of the ground to the Lord."
  • 00:12:35.000 --> 00:12:36.290
  • He did not bring first fruits.
  • 00:12:37.020 --> 00:12:38.200
  • "Abel also brought of the firstborn of his
  • 00:12:38.230 --> 00:12:41.240
  • flock and of their fat.
  • 00:12:41.270 --> 00:12:43.160
  • And the Lord respected," or received, "Abel and his
  • 00:12:43.190 --> 00:12:45.250
  • offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering."
  • 00:12:45.280 --> 00:12:48.120
  • Now, I've covered this some in "The Blessed Life,"
  • 00:12:48.150 --> 00:12:51.140
  • but I want you to realize something,
  • 00:12:51.170 --> 00:12:53.160
  • because so many people say, well, tithing was under the law
  • 00:12:53.190 --> 00:12:57.020
  • and we're not under the law.
  • 00:12:57.050 --> 00:12:58.110
  • That's true.
  • 00:12:58.140 --> 00:12:59.090
  • We're not under the law as believers.
  • 00:12:59.120 --> 00:13:00.290
  • But if you think that that means that you can murder,
  • 00:13:01.020 --> 00:13:04.250
  • or commit adultery, or steal, or lie, and it not affect you,
  • 00:13:04.280 --> 00:13:11.090
  • you are greatly deceived.
  • 00:13:11.120 --> 00:13:14.130
  • And if you think that it means that you can take
  • 00:13:14.160 --> 00:13:16.270
  • what belongs to God and not be affected,
  • 00:13:17.000 --> 00:13:21.140
  • you are greatly deceived.
  • 00:13:21.170 --> 00:13:24.150
  • So, but just so many people just don't realize a timeline,
  • 00:13:24.180 --> 00:13:28.040
  • so let me give you just a little timeline, all right?
  • 00:13:28.070 --> 00:13:30.020
  • Cain and Abel, this was about 4.000 BC,
  • 00:13:30.050 --> 00:13:34.260
  • 4.000 years before Christ, okay?
  • 00:13:34.290 --> 00:13:38.270
  • Now, just to give you some markers,
  • 00:13:39.000 --> 00:13:41.000
  • Abraham was about 2.000 BC.
  • 00:13:41.030 --> 00:13:44.010
  • There's 2.000 years from Adam and Eve to Abraham,
  • 00:13:44.040 --> 00:13:46.210
  • and 2.000 years to Christ, just so you know.
  • 00:13:46.240 --> 00:13:49.120
  • All right.
  • 00:13:49.150 --> 00:13:50.160
  • Now, Moses, the law came through Moses.
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:53.270
  • That's John 1.
  • 00:13:54.000 --> 00:13:55.000
  • This is simple, so I don't think anybody here would
  • 00:13:55.030 --> 00:13:57.240
  • disagree with that.
  • 00:13:57.270 --> 00:13:59.050
  • The law came through Moses, 1.500 BC, and then
  • 00:13:59.080 --> 00:14:01.270
  • David, just to give you a marker, was about 1.000 BC.
  • 00:14:02.000 --> 00:14:04.260
  • All right?
  • 00:14:04.290 --> 00:14:05.280
  • That's just a little bit of the Old Testament
  • 00:14:06.010 --> 00:14:07.250
  • with some characters that you know.
  • 00:14:07.280 --> 00:14:09.270
  • Here's what I want you to notice though, okay?
  • 00:14:10.000 --> 00:14:12.010
  • Cain and Abel, 4.000 BC.
  • 00:14:12.040 --> 00:14:14.180
  • Look at Moses, the law, 1.500 BC.
  • 00:14:14.210 --> 00:14:18.130
  • Go to where we just got the -- yeah, okay.
  • 00:14:18.160 --> 00:14:20.060
  • So, 1.500, 4.000.
  • 00:14:20.090 --> 00:14:22.200
  • Now, I know some of you are not good at math.
  • 00:14:22.230 --> 00:14:27.190
  • I understand that.
  • 00:14:27.220 --> 00:14:28.240
  • You're good at things that I'm not good at.
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:30.100
  • I understand, and I really believe that with all my heart.
  • 00:14:30.130 --> 00:14:33.010
  • But math is, you know, like right now you're,
  • 00:14:33.040 --> 00:14:35.100
  • okay, carry the -- okay, so.
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:37.000
  • But, here's the bottom line.
  • 00:14:37.030 --> 00:14:40.230
  • How far from Cain and Abel until the law came?
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:44.150
  • How far?
  • 00:14:44.180 --> 00:14:46.120
  • Okay, let's do it this way, all right?
  • 00:14:46.150 --> 00:14:51.070
  • 2.500 years.
  • 00:14:51.100 --> 00:14:54.150
  • 2.500 years before the law was given,
  • 00:15:01.080 --> 00:15:08.140
  • God accepted a firstborn offering,
  • 00:15:08.170 --> 00:15:14.220
  • but did not accept another offering
  • 00:15:14.250 --> 00:15:17.100
  • because it was not the first fruits.
  • 00:15:17.130 --> 00:15:20.160
  • The tithe belongs to God.
  • 00:15:20.190 --> 00:15:23.140
  • When Ethan and Elaine were dating,
  • 00:15:23.170 --> 00:15:28.010
  • it was in the young adult service,
  • 00:15:28.040 --> 00:15:29.290
  • so, they're sitting around talking, like seven
  • 00:15:30.020 --> 00:15:31.180
  • or eight of 'em, and they're kind of just joking around
  • 00:15:31.210 --> 00:15:34.230
  • with Ethan about what's it like to date
  • 00:15:34.260 --> 00:15:37.290
  • Pastor Robert's daughter?
  • 00:15:38.020 --> 00:15:40.290
  • And I was good.
  • 00:15:41.020 --> 00:15:43.000
  • Wasn't I good?
  • 00:15:43.030 --> 00:15:43.260
  • I was good.
  • 00:15:43.290 --> 00:15:45.080
  • I mean, I talked to him about standards and rules,
  • 00:15:45.110 --> 00:15:48.220
  • and I showed him my gun collection.
  • 00:15:48.250 --> 00:15:50.230
  • Normal things, normal things that a father would do,
  • 00:15:50.260 --> 00:15:56.010
  • you know?
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:56.220
  • Okay.
  • 00:15:56.250 --> 00:15:57.110
  • All right.
  • 00:15:57.140 --> 00:15:58.190
  • So, but they're sitting around talking about, you know,
  • 00:15:58.220 --> 00:16:01.190
  • what's it like to date Pastor Robert's daughter?
  • 00:16:01.220 --> 00:16:04.090
  • And then one of them said this to Elaine.
  • 00:16:04.120 --> 00:16:06.240
  • He said, "You know, your dad is so strong on tithing,
  • 00:16:06.270 --> 00:16:14.060
  • I'll bet he even checks the tithing records
  • 00:16:14.090 --> 00:16:16.280
  • of the guys that want to date you."
  • 00:16:17.010 --> 00:16:20.250
  • And my daughter said, "He does."
  • 00:16:20.280 --> 00:16:25.000
  • [laughter]
  • 00:16:25.030 --> 00:16:28.250
  • And I did.
  • 00:16:28.280 --> 00:16:31.180
  • So, let me just ask you a question.
  • 00:16:31.210 --> 00:16:34.220
  • Why would I give my daughter to a thief?
  • 00:16:34.250 --> 00:16:40.120
  • And please don't get offended if you struggle with tithing,
  • 00:16:40.150 --> 00:16:43.100
  • or even if you have a different doctrine.
  • 00:16:43.130 --> 00:16:44.290
  • Please don't get offended, 'cause I believe what the Bible
  • 00:16:45.020 --> 00:16:48.000
  • says about it, and God calls the person who
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:53.250
  • does not return the tithe, He calls that person a thief,
  • 00:16:53.280 --> 00:16:58.110
  • God does.
  • 00:16:58.140 --> 00:17:00.120
  • Joshua 7, Malachi 3, look it up for yourself.
  • 00:17:00.150 --> 00:17:04.100
  • Joshua 7 uses the word "stolen."
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:07.140
  • They've stolen it.
  • 00:17:07.170 --> 00:17:09.050
  • Malachi 3, He says, "You have robbed Me.
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:12.230
  • "You have robbed Me from this, because it belongs to Me."
  • 00:17:12.260 --> 00:17:16.060
  • So, it all belongs to God, the first belongs to God,
  • 00:17:16.090 --> 00:17:20.130
  • and now we're gonna hit tithing.
  • 00:17:20.160 --> 00:17:23.010
  • So number three, the tithe belongs to God.
  • 00:17:23.040 --> 00:17:26.260
  • The word "tithe" is a Hebrew word which means the tenth,
  • 00:17:26.290 --> 00:17:30.050
  • and when you see it in Scripture,
  • 00:17:30.080 --> 00:17:31.150
  • it's the first tenth.
  • 00:17:31.180 --> 00:17:33.140
  • When your sheep had ten, when your sheep had a lamb,
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:37.160
  • let's put it this way, you were to give the first one to God,
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:41.120
  • not the tenth one.
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:43.040
  • Here's the reason why.
  • 00:17:43.070 --> 00:17:44.160
  • It would not take faith to give the tenth one.
  • 00:17:44.190 --> 00:17:48.250
  • It takes faith to give the first one.
  • 00:17:48.280 --> 00:17:51.230
  • When they went into Jericho and when they went
  • 00:17:51.260 --> 00:17:53.230
  • in the Promised Land, God said, "Bring" - He didn't say give,
  • 00:17:53.260 --> 00:17:57.220
  • because you can't give what doesn't belong to you,
  • 00:17:57.250 --> 00:17:59.210
  • you can only bring it.
  • 00:17:59.240 --> 00:18:01.050
  • "Bring all of the silver and gold from Jericho
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:03.170
  • into the house of the Lord."
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:05.220
  • Why did He say that, and why did He say all of it?
  • 00:18:05.250 --> 00:18:08.040
  • It's real simple.
  • 00:18:08.070 --> 00:18:09.040
  • Jericho was the first city.
  • 00:18:09.070 --> 00:18:12.170
  • It's the principle of the first.
  • 00:18:12.200 --> 00:18:14.020
  • God said you bring Me the first, and the rest will be blessed.
  • 00:18:14.050 --> 00:18:17.170
  • Remember when they kept some, they lost the second battle,
  • 00:18:17.200 --> 00:18:20.190
  • which was the Battle of Ai, which was a very,
  • 00:18:20.220 --> 00:18:22.180
  • very small city.
  • 00:18:22.210 --> 00:18:24.100
  • They couldn't even defeat a small city, because they had
  • 00:18:24.130 --> 00:18:26.290
  • stolen, and again, those are the words God used, Joshua 7.
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:30.120
  • He said, "They have stolen from Me."
  • 00:18:30.150 --> 00:18:32.150
  • They took what belonged to Me.
  • 00:18:32.180 --> 00:18:34.180
  • So, the tithe belongs to God.
  • 00:18:34.210 --> 00:18:36.080
  • Look at the Scripture, Leviticus 27:30.
  • 00:18:36.110 --> 00:18:39.050
  • "And all the tithe of the land."
  • 00:18:39.080 --> 00:18:42.290
  • I just want you to notice the word "all."
  • 00:18:43.020 --> 00:18:46.270
  • "Of the seed, whether of the seed of the land
  • 00:18:47.000 --> 00:18:50.110
  • or of the fruit of the tree," watch, I told you
  • 00:18:50.140 --> 00:18:52.290
  • it belongs to God, "is the Lord's.
  • 00:18:53.020 --> 00:18:59.190
  • It is holy to the Lord."
  • 00:18:59.220 --> 00:19:03.290
  • Isn't that amazing?
  • 00:19:04.020 --> 00:19:05.080
  • "It is holy to the Lord."
  • 00:19:05.110 --> 00:19:06.200
  • Now, we get hung up a lot on 10%.
  • 00:19:06.230 --> 00:19:11.250
  • It's not so much that it's 10%, it's the first 10%,
  • 00:19:11.280 --> 00:19:14.250
  • and I don't know why God chose 10%, other than I think
  • 00:19:14.280 --> 00:19:18.040
  • it's just easy for every person, and it's the same.
  • 00:19:18.070 --> 00:19:22.220
  • It's equal.
  • 00:19:22.250 --> 00:19:24.010
  • Do you realize that?
  • 00:19:24.040 --> 00:19:25.180
  • If you tithe, you give the same as a millionaire to God.
  • 00:19:25.210 --> 00:19:32.080
  • See, the tithe on a $50.000 a year salary is the exact
  • 00:19:32.110 --> 00:19:38.070
  • same as the tithe on a 5 million a year salary - it's 10%.
  • 00:19:38.100 --> 00:19:44.230
  • And I think it's easy to remember, and I know we're
  • 00:19:44.260 --> 00:19:46.190
  • not all good at math.
  • 00:19:46.220 --> 00:19:47.260
  • But, numbers add up in my mind just like that.
  • 00:19:47.290 --> 00:19:52.040
  • It just happens, okay?
  • 00:19:52.070 --> 00:19:53.190
  • Debbie and I were buying something one time for $7.99,
  • 00:19:53.220 --> 00:19:57.200
  • and the lady said, "I'm gonna have to add the tax
  • 00:19:57.230 --> 00:20:00.070
  • on the calculator because the cash register's broken."
  • 00:20:00.100 --> 00:20:03.190
  • And I said, "It's 66 cents," that fast.
  • 00:20:03.220 --> 00:20:07.270
  • And she, you know, did her little thing and then she said,
  • 00:20:08.000 --> 00:20:10.290
  • "It's 66 cents."
  • 00:20:11.020 --> 00:20:13.220
  • So I said, "Okay."
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:14.260
  • So we get out in the car and Debbie says to me,
  • 00:20:14.290 --> 00:20:18.180
  • "How do you do that?"
  • 00:20:18.210 --> 00:20:21.250
  • Okay, let me help you, men.
  • 00:20:21.280 --> 00:20:26.080
  • I thought that she was actually asking me...
  • 00:20:26.110 --> 00:20:32.130
  • [laughter]
  • 00:20:32.160 --> 00:20:41.030
  • How I did it.
  • 00:20:41.060 --> 00:20:43.090
  • She said, "How do you do that?"
  • 00:20:43.120 --> 00:20:47.220
  • I found out later she could not care less how I do it.
  • 00:20:47.250 --> 00:20:54.190
  • And so, I explained it to her.
  • 00:20:54.220 --> 00:20:56.120
  • I said, "Sugar, that should happen in less than
  • 00:20:56.150 --> 00:20:59.190
  • a second in your mind."
  • 00:20:59.220 --> 00:21:02.100
  • [laughter]
  • 00:21:02.130 --> 00:21:11.230
  • She said, "It doesn't."
  • 00:21:11.260 --> 00:21:17.240
  • And she said, "I'll tell you what I do know.
  • 00:21:17.270 --> 00:21:23.050
  • I know what 25% off means."
  • 00:21:23.080 --> 00:21:26.200
  • [applause]
  • 00:21:26.230 --> 00:21:32.110
  • "What does that mean?"
  • 00:21:32.140 --> 00:21:33.110
  • She said, "It means it's a good deal."
  • 00:21:33.140 --> 00:21:35.150
  • [laughter]
  • 00:21:35.180 --> 00:21:38.240
  • And then she said, "And if it's 50% off, it's free."
  • 00:21:38.270 --> 00:21:43.190
  • [laughter]
  • 00:21:43.220 --> 00:21:48.200
  • And then she says, "And if it's 75% off,
  • 00:21:48.230 --> 00:21:51.030
  • you're making money."
  • 00:21:51.060 --> 00:21:52.270
  • [laughter]
  • 00:21:53.000 --> 00:21:59.210
  • So, the reason I think God came up with 10% is so
  • 00:21:59.240 --> 00:22:05.180
  • all of us can understand, you know, how much that is, okay?
  • 00:22:05.210 --> 00:22:11.200
  • I led a guy to the Lord one time, and he asked me
  • 00:22:11.230 --> 00:22:16.090
  • to disciple him, so we met every week to disciple him.
  • 00:22:16.120 --> 00:22:19.280
  • Now, think about the Scriptures, the Trinity,
  • 00:22:20.010 --> 00:22:24.190
  • the Apostles' Creeds, you know, the baptism
  • 00:22:24.220 --> 00:22:27.260
  • of the Holy Spirit, deliverance.
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:29.180
  • All those things I did use, but do you know what
  • 00:22:29.210 --> 00:22:31.160
  • I did the first week?
  • 00:22:31.190 --> 00:22:33.160
  • Tithing.
  • 00:22:33.190 --> 00:22:35.250
  • You want to know why?
  • 00:22:35.280 --> 00:22:38.120
  • I wanted him to get out from under the curse.
  • 00:22:38.150 --> 00:22:42.180
  • See, what I'm telling you, I believe.
  • 00:22:42.210 --> 00:22:45.090
  • I believe this.
  • 00:22:45.120 --> 00:22:46.270
  • I believe that book right there when it says you're
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:49.160
  • under a curse because you've robbed Me.
  • 00:22:49.190 --> 00:22:52.090
  • You took what belonged to Me.
  • 00:22:52.120 --> 00:22:54.050
  • I believe that.
  • 00:22:54.080 --> 00:22:55.040
  • I believe that.
  • 00:22:55.070 --> 00:22:56.170
  • So, I explained to him about tithing.
  • 00:22:56.200 --> 00:22:59.110
  • So, that Friday, he got paid.
  • 00:22:59.140 --> 00:23:02.190
  • He's on commission and he had a bad week,
  • 00:23:02.220 --> 00:23:05.160
  • so his check was $640.
  • 00:23:05.190 --> 00:23:09.110
  • So, that weekend I saw him at church and he
  • 00:23:09.140 --> 00:23:11.160
  • showed me his check.
  • 00:23:11.190 --> 00:23:12.190
  • He said, "Look, I brought my tithe check, $64."
  • 00:23:12.220 --> 00:23:16.290
  • And he said, "And you know, this was a bad week for me,
  • 00:23:17.020 --> 00:23:19.130
  • so it's really tough to do that this week.
  • 00:23:19.160 --> 00:23:23.100
  • But," he said, "I believe what you told me,
  • 00:23:23.130 --> 00:23:24.280
  • and I believe the Scriptures you showed me."
  • 00:23:25.010 --> 00:23:27.130
  • So he put his $64 in on Sunday in the offering box.
  • 00:23:27.160 --> 00:23:31.260
  • Monday, he calls me.
  • 00:23:31.290 --> 00:23:33.270
  • He said, "You're not going to believe this."
  • 00:23:34.000 --> 00:23:37.130
  • He said, "When I got home, I got the mail out of the mailbox,
  • 00:23:37.160 --> 00:23:40.120
  • and there was a letter from the City of",
  • 00:23:40.150 --> 00:23:43.270
  • and he lived in Irving, "from the water department.
  • 00:23:44.000 --> 00:23:48.150
  • And I thought it was the bill."
  • 00:23:48.180 --> 00:23:50.180
  • And he said, "And I opened it up and it said we've done
  • 00:23:50.210 --> 00:23:53.150
  • an internal audit and you've been paying too much."
  • 00:23:53.180 --> 00:23:59.030
  • And he said, "There was a check in there for $640,"
  • 00:23:59.060 --> 00:24:06.110
  • ten times the amount.
  • 00:24:06.140 --> 00:24:11.050
  • You will never convince me in a million years
  • 00:24:11.080 --> 00:24:18.050
  • that that's a coincidence.
  • 00:24:18.080 --> 00:24:19.150
  • ROBERT: I want to encourage you, step out in faith,
  • 00:24:20.120 --> 00:24:23.150
  • and put God first in your finances.
  • 00:24:23.180 --> 00:24:26.270
  • It all belongs to God, but the first belongs to God,
  • 00:24:27.000 --> 00:24:30.290
  • and the tithe is the first 10%.
  • 00:24:31.020 --> 00:24:33.240
  • Tithe to your local church.
  • 00:24:33.270 --> 00:24:36.110
  • I'm not saying this just so that our local churches can grow
  • 00:24:36.140 --> 00:24:40.080
  • and reach more people, which that's great too.
  • 00:24:40.110 --> 00:24:42.260
  • But I'm saying this so that you can walk in the order that God
  • 00:24:42.290 --> 00:24:47.170
  • has in His word.
  • 00:24:47.200 --> 00:24:49.180
  • And that is that we put God first in every area of our life
  • 00:24:49.210 --> 00:24:53.110
  • including our finances.
  • 00:24:53.140 --> 00:24:56.080
  • And watch what God does.
  • 00:24:56.110 --> 00:24:58.120
  • God wants us to live beyond blessed, so that we can be
  • 00:24:58.150 --> 00:25:04.010
  • a blessing.
  • 00:25:04.040 --> 00:25:06.000
  • Hey, I appreciate you so much, and I love you so much,
  • 00:25:06.030 --> 00:25:08.240
  • and I love that you love hearing God's word, and putting it
  • 00:25:08.270 --> 00:25:12.240
  • into practice in your own life.
  • 00:25:12.270 --> 00:25:15.290
  • I'm gonna continue this series next time, I'll see you then.
  • 00:25:16.020 --> 00:25:18.230
  • ANNOUNCER: Pastor Robert teaches us that moving from selfishness
  • 00:25:20.200 --> 00:25:23.110
  • to generosity is the key to living a blessed life.
  • 00:25:23.140 --> 00:25:27.040
  • It not only transforms our finances, it affects every area
  • 00:25:27.070 --> 00:25:30.120
  • of our lives.
  • 00:25:30.150 --> 00:25:31.240
  • But before we can be generous, we have to first learn how
  • 00:25:31.270 --> 00:25:34.050
  • to be faithful stewards in managing everything God
  • 00:25:34.080 --> 00:25:36.180
  • entrusts to us.
  • 00:25:36.210 --> 00:25:38.120
  • In the "Beyond Blessed" series, Pastor Robert shows us what
  • 00:25:38.150 --> 00:25:41.240
  • the Bible says about the importance of wise stewardship,
  • 00:25:41.270 --> 00:25:44.270
  • and how it's God's perfect plan for us to overcome all
  • 00:25:45.000 --> 00:25:47.260
  • financial stress.
  • 00:25:47.290 --> 00:25:49.160
  • God will bless us in supernatural ways when we
  • 00:25:49.190 --> 00:25:52.010
  • steward the finances He gives us, and when we are generous
  • 00:25:52.040 --> 00:25:55.200
  • and bless others.
  • 00:25:55.230 --> 00:25:57.060
  • Living beyond blessed isn't about what we're able to receive
  • 00:25:57.090 --> 00:26:00.040
  • it's about what we're able to give.
  • 00:26:00.070 --> 00:26:02.090
  • It's then that we can truly live beyond blessed.
  • 00:26:02.120 --> 00:26:05.280
