  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: THE LAW
  • 00:00:12.150 --> 00:00:15.150
  • OF FIRST FRUITS IS A GIANT STEP
  • 00:00:15.150 --> 00:00:17.250
  • IN CLIMBING THE STAIRWAY
  • 00:00:17.250 --> 00:00:19.050
  • TO THE STARS OF SUCCESS
  • 00:00:19.050 --> 00:00:21.110
  • AND PERSONAL PROSPERITY.
  • 00:00:21.110 --> 00:00:23.230
  • WHEN YOU OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:00:23.230 --> 00:00:25.060
  • OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:00:25.060 --> 00:00:26.140
  • GOD'S PROMISE THAT HE WILL
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:28.210
  • POUR OUT HIS PROSPERITY
  • 00:00:28.210 --> 00:00:31.100
  • EXCEEDINGLY,
  • 00:00:31.100 --> 00:00:32.060
  • ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:00:32.060 --> 00:00:33.040
  • ABOVE WHAT YOU CAN ASK
  • 00:00:33.040 --> 00:00:34.110
  • OR IMAGINE.
  • 00:00:34.110 --> 00:00:36.000
  • IF YOU IGNORE THE LAW
  • 00:00:36.000 --> 00:00:37.190
  • OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:00:37.190 --> 00:00:39.190
  • GOD SAYS YOUR LACK
  • 00:00:39.190 --> 00:00:41.070
  • WILL NEVER END.
  • 00:00:41.070 --> 00:00:42.250
  • IT WILL AFFECT YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:00:42.250 --> 00:00:44.140
  • IT WILL AFFECT YOUR BUSINESS
  • 00:00:44.140 --> 00:00:46.080
  • FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.
  • 00:00:46.080 --> 00:00:48.210
  • TODAY I'M GOING TO OPEN
  • 00:00:48.210 --> 00:00:49.290
  • THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:00:49.290 --> 00:00:51.230
  • THE GREATEST FINANCIAL MANUAL
  • 00:00:51.230 --> 00:00:53.220
  • THAT YOU'VE EVER READ
  • 00:00:53.220 --> 00:00:54.230
  • IN ALL OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:00:54.230 --> 00:00:56.150
  • AND GIVE DIVINE EVIDENCE
  • 00:00:56.150 --> 00:00:58.190
  • TO CONFIRM THIS POWERFUL BIBLE
  • 00:00:58.190 --> 00:01:01.180
  • TEACHING TO DETERMINE
  • 00:01:01.180 --> 00:01:04.160
  • THE QUALITY OF YOUR PROSPERITY
  • 00:01:04.160 --> 00:01:06.250
  • IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:01:06.250 --> 00:01:08.050
  • LET'S READ EXODUS 34:22
  • 00:01:08.050 --> 00:01:11.040
  • AND FOLLOWING.
  • 00:01:11.040 --> 00:01:11.240
  • READY?
  • 00:01:11.240 --> 00:01:12.230
  • "AND YOU SHALL OBSERVE
  • 00:01:12.230 --> 00:01:13.240
  • THE FEAST OF WEEKS OF THE

  • FIRST FRUITS OF WHEAT HARVEST
  • 00:01:15.160 --> 00:01:17.170
  • AND THE FEAST OF INGATHERING
  • 00:01:17.170 --> 00:01:19.200
  • AT THE YEAR'S END.
  • 00:01:19.200 --> 00:01:21.110
  • THREE TIMES IN THE YEAR,
  • 00:01:21.110 --> 00:01:23.080
  • ALL YOUR MEN SHALL APPEAR
  • 00:01:23.080 --> 00:01:25.010
  • BEFORE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:01:25.010 --> 00:01:28.010
  • FOR I WILL CAST OUT THE NATIONS
  • 00:01:28.010 --> 00:01:29.270
  • BEFORE YOU,
  • 00:01:29.270 --> 00:01:31.060
  • AND ENLARGE YOUR BORDERS.
  • 00:01:31.060 --> 00:01:33.120
  • NEITHER WILL ANY MAN COVET
  • 00:01:33.120 --> 00:01:35.170
  • YOUR LAND,

  • WHEN YOU GO UP TO APPEAR BEFORE

  • THE LORD YOUR GOD THREE TIMES
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:40.150
  • IN THE YEAR.
  • 00:01:40.150 --> 00:01:41.240
  • YOU SHALL NOT OFFER THE BLOOD
  • 00:01:41.240 --> 00:01:43.260
  • OF MY SACRIFICE WITH LEAVEN,
  • 00:01:43.260 --> 00:01:46.060
  • NOR SHALL THE SACRIFICE
  • 00:01:46.060 --> 00:01:47.170
  • OF THE FEAST OF PASSOVER BE LEFT
  • 00:01:47.170 --> 00:01:50.000
  • UNTIL MORNING.
  • 00:01:50.000 --> 00:01:51.130
  • THE FIRST OF THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:01:51.130 --> 00:01:53.100
  • OF YOUR LAND,
  • 00:01:53.100 --> 00:01:54.100
  • YOU SHALL BRING TO THE HOUSE
  • 00:01:54.100 --> 00:01:56.230
  • OF THE LORD YOUR GOD."
  • 00:01:56.230 --> 00:01:58.250
  • FATHER GOD,
  • 00:01:58.250 --> 00:01:59.240
  • THANK YOU FOR THE WORD
  • 00:01:59.240 --> 00:02:02.210
  • THAT IS A LIGHT UNTO OUR FEET
  • 00:02:02.210 --> 00:02:05.150
  • AND A LIGHT UNTO OUR PATHWAY.
  • 00:02:05.150 --> 00:02:08.120
  • LET US HEAR IT.
  • 00:02:08.120 --> 00:02:10.160
  • LET US EXPERIENCE IT.
  • 00:02:10.160 --> 00:02:13.010
  • LET US PRACTICE IT.
  • 00:02:13.010 --> 00:02:15.010
  • FOR IT IS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:02:15.010 --> 00:02:17.030
  • FOR THIS CONGREGATION
  • 00:02:17.030 --> 00:02:19.090
  • AND FOR RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE
  • 00:02:19.090 --> 00:02:21.160
  • WHO DESIRE TO LIVE
  • 00:02:21.160 --> 00:02:22.230
  • ON THE ECONOMY OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:02:22.230 --> 00:02:24.240
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:02:24.240 --> 00:02:26.270
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:02:26.270 --> 00:02:28.120
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:02:28.120 --> 00:02:29.190
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:02:29.190 --> 00:02:30.180
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:02:30.180 --> 00:02:32.060
  • LET'S BEGIN WITH THE BASICS
  • 00:02:32.060 --> 00:02:34.120
  • THAT GOD DEMANDS TO BE FIRST.
  • 00:02:36.010 --> 00:02:39.010
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:02:39.010 --> 00:02:39.270
  • "SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM
  • 00:02:39.270 --> 00:02:40.290
  • OF GOD
  • 00:02:40.290 --> 00:02:42.230
  • AND ALL OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:45.060
  • AND ALL OF THESE THINGS SHALL
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:47.000
  • BE ADDED UNTO YOU."
  • 00:02:47.000 --> 00:02:49.010
  • HEAR THAT ONE PHRASE,
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:51.010
  • "ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:02:51.010 --> 00:02:53.280
  • SHALL BE ADDED,"
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:55.080
  • BECAUSE YOU SEEK FIRST
  • 00:02:55.080 --> 00:02:57.100
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:02:57.100 --> 00:02:58.110
  • WHY DO WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY?
  • 00:02:58.110 --> 00:03:00.210
  • WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY
  • 00:03:00.210 --> 00:03:01.220
  • BECAUSE JESUS ROSE
  • 00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:02.260
  • FROM THE DEAD ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:03:02.260 --> 00:03:04.200
  • SUNDAY IS THE FIRST DAY
  • 00:03:04.200 --> 00:03:05.290
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:07.030
  • IT IS THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:08.280
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:08.280 --> 00:03:10.060
  • LISTEN.
  • 00:03:10.060 --> 00:03:11.110
  • YOUR SUCCESS FOR THE WEEK
  • 00:03:11.110 --> 00:03:13.220
  • BEGINS ON SUNDAY BY HONORING
  • 00:03:14.080 --> 00:03:17.080
  • THE LORD AS THE LORD
  • 00:03:17.080 --> 00:03:18.150
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:18.150 --> 00:03:19.280
  • THE FIRST FRUIT SANCTIFIES
  • 00:03:20.240 --> 00:03:23.240
  • THE FOLLOWING FRUIT.
  • 00:03:23.240 --> 00:03:25.130
  • PUTTING GOD FIRST IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:03:25.130 --> 00:03:27.220
  • ESTABLISHES HIS LORDSHIP.
  • 00:03:27.220 --> 00:03:30.110
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:03:30.110 --> 00:03:32.020
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:03:32.020 --> 00:03:33.220
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD,
  • 00:03:33.220 --> 00:03:35.030
  • THERE IS NO BLESSING,
  • 00:03:35.030 --> 00:03:36.170
  • THERE IS NO FAVOR,
  • 00:03:36.170 --> 00:03:38.010
  • THERE IS NO PROSPERITY;
  • 00:03:38.010 --> 00:03:40.000
  • AND YOU LIVE,
  • 00:03:40.000 --> 00:03:41.150
  • ACCORDING TO MALACHI,
  • 00:03:41.150 --> 00:03:42.250
  • UNDER A CURSE.
  • 00:03:42.250 --> 00:03:44.170
  • C.S. LEWIS SAYS,
  • 00:03:44.170 --> 00:03:45.210
  • "WHEN FIRST THINGS ARE PUT
  • 00:03:45.210 --> 00:03:46.290
  • FIRST,
  • 00:03:46.290 --> 00:03:48.010
  • SECOND THINGS BEGIN
  • 00:03:48.010 --> 00:03:49.240
  • TO INCREASE."
  • 00:03:49.240 --> 00:03:51.060
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN
  • 00:03:51.060 --> 00:03:51.250
  • TO BE FIRST?
  • 00:03:51.250 --> 00:03:53.050
  • FIRST IS PRECEDING ALL OTHERS
  • 00:03:53.050 --> 00:03:55.270
  • IN TIME IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE.
  • 00:03:57.110 --> 00:04:00.130
  • IF YOU GO OUT AND RUN A RACE
  • 00:04:00.130 --> 00:04:02.130
  • BY YOURSELF,
  • 00:04:02.130 --> 00:04:04.010
  • YOU COME IN FIRST,
  • 00:04:04.010 --> 00:04:06.040
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS NOBODY ELSE
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:07.140
  • RUNNING AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:04:07.140 --> 00:04:09.190
  • SO IF YOU REALLY ARE
  • 00:04:09.190 --> 00:04:10.210
  • NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:04:10.210 --> 00:04:11.210
  • THERE HAS TO BE A SEQUENCE
  • 00:04:11.210 --> 00:04:13.060
  • OF SOMEBODY BEHIND YOU
  • 00:04:13.060 --> 00:04:15.190
  • BEFORE YOU CAN MAKE
  • 00:04:15.190 --> 00:04:16.190
  • THAT DECLARATION.
  • 00:04:16.190 --> 00:04:18.070
  • FIRST DOES NOT MEAN NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:04:18.070 --> 00:04:20.050
  • IT DOES NOT MEAN THE ONLY ONE.
  • 00:04:20.050 --> 00:04:22.240
  • NOTHING CAN BE FIRST UNLESS
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:24.200
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE TO BE
  • 00:04:24.200 --> 00:04:26.170
  • FIRST OF.
  • 00:04:26.170 --> 00:04:28.070
  • FIRST FRUITS IS THE OFFERING
  • 00:04:28.070 --> 00:04:30.110
  • OF THE FIRST GRAIN HARVESTED
  • 00:04:30.110 --> 00:04:32.000
  • IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:32.000 --> 00:04:33.150
  • IF YOU DID NOT BRING YOUR FIRST
  • 00:04:33.150 --> 00:04:35.000
  • FRUITS TO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:38.010
  • GOD INSTRUCTED ISRAEL THAT
  • 00:04:38.010 --> 00:04:40.230
  • THERE WOULD BE NO ADDITIONAL
  • 00:04:40.230 --> 00:04:42.120
  • FRUIT FOR THE HARVEST;
  • 00:04:42.120 --> 00:04:44.170
  • THEREFORE,
  • 00:04:44.170 --> 00:04:46.280
  • WHENEVER YOU AS A FARMER,
  • 00:04:46.280 --> 00:04:49.060
  • IN THE TIME OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:04:49.060 --> 00:04:51.080
  • DID NOT HAVE THE BLESSINGS
  • 00:04:51.080 --> 00:04:52.100
  • OF GOD BECAUSE YOU REFUSED
  • 00:04:52.100 --> 00:04:55.060
  • TO BRING THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:04:55.060 --> 00:04:56.100
  • TO THE HOUSE OF GOD,
  • 00:04:56.100 --> 00:04:58.030
  • YOU WERE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:04:58.030 --> 00:05:00.040
  • GOD IS THE LORD OF ALL
  • 00:05:00.040 --> 00:05:01.170
  • OR HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:05:01.170 --> 00:05:03.240
  • GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:05:03.240 --> 00:05:05.060
  • AND PLACED THEM IN THE PARADISE
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:07.040
  • OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
  • 00:05:07.040 --> 00:05:08.270
  • ADAM WENT TO SLEEP
  • 00:05:08.270 --> 00:05:10.230
  • AND HE WOKE UP MARRIED.
  • 00:05:10.230 --> 00:05:12.210
  • IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE AN INSOMNIAC
  • 00:05:12.210 --> 00:05:14.020
  • OUT OF YOU.
  • 00:05:14.020 --> 00:05:15.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:15.230 --> 00:05:16.110
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO WORK
  • 00:05:16.110 --> 00:05:17.060
  • 60 HOURS A WEEK TO GAIN.
  • 00:05:17.080 --> 00:05:20.080
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO FIGHT
  • 00:05:20.080 --> 00:05:22.040
  • THE TRAFFIC GOING TO WORK
  • 00:05:22.040 --> 00:05:24.020
  • AND FROM WORK,
  • 00:05:24.020 --> 00:05:25.160
  • THE SMOG,
  • 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:26.090
  • THE IRS,
  • 00:05:26.090 --> 00:05:27.200
  • AND THE INCESSANT RINGING
  • 00:05:27.200 --> 00:05:30.050
  • OF A CELL PHONE.
  • 00:05:30.050 --> 00:05:31.280
  • I'VE OFTEN SAID,
  • 00:05:31.280 --> 00:05:32.240
  • "IF I WAKE UP IN ETERNITY
  • 00:05:32.240 --> 00:05:34.040
  • AND HEAR A PHONE RING,
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:35.140
  • I KNOW I DIED AND WENT TO HELL."
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:38.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:39.070
  • GOD GAVE ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:05:39.070 --> 00:05:40.200
  • ONE COMMAND,
  • 00:05:40.200 --> 00:05:42.010
  • "LEAVE THE FRUIT ON THE TREE
  • 00:05:42.010 --> 00:05:44.000
  • OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD
  • 00:05:44.000 --> 00:05:44.280
  • AND EVIL ALONE;
  • 00:05:44.280 --> 00:05:46.140
  • IT IS FORBIDDEN FRUIT."
  • 00:05:46.140 --> 00:05:48.230
  • DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
  • 00:05:48.230 --> 00:05:51.140
  • WHY DID GOD CREATE THAT TREE?
  • 00:05:51.140 --> 00:05:53.240
  • THE ANSWER IS TO SEE IF ADAM
  • 00:05:53.240 --> 00:05:55.260
  • AND EVE WOULD PUT HIM FIRST
  • 00:05:55.260 --> 00:05:57.230
  • WHENEVER SATAN CAME
  • 00:05:57.230 --> 00:05:58.240
  • TO TEMPT THEM,
  • 00:05:58.240 --> 00:06:00.050
  • BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT TEMPTATION
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:01.170
  • WAS COMING.
  • 00:06:01.170 --> 00:06:03.110
  • GOD WANTED TO SEE IF THEY WOULD
  • 00:06:03.110 --> 00:06:04.280
  • PUT THE THEIR WILL
  • 00:06:04.280 --> 00:06:06.200
  • ABOVE HIS WILL.
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:08.240
  • GET THAT PHRASE.
  • 00:06:08.240 --> 00:06:10.240
  • WHEN YOUR DESIRES,
  • 00:06:10.240 --> 00:06:12.160
  • YOUR PLANS,
  • 00:06:12.160 --> 00:06:13.270
  • YOUR IDEAS,
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:15.170
  • BECOME MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU
  • 00:06:15.170 --> 00:06:17.060
  • THAN GOD'S PLAN,
  • 00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:19.020
  • YOU HAVE ADOPTED THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:06:19.020 --> 00:06:20.230
  • OF LUCIFER.
  • 00:06:20.230 --> 00:06:22.240
  • LUCIFER CHALLENGED GOD.
  • 00:06:22.240 --> 00:06:25.240
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:06:25.240 --> 00:06:27.050
  • "I WILL ASCEND TO THE HILL
  • 00:06:27.050 --> 00:06:28.130
  • OF GOD, I WILL BE LIKE GOD,
  • 00:06:28.130 --> 00:06:30.100
  • I WILL, I WILL, I WILL..."
  • 00:06:30.100 --> 00:06:32.170
  • THOSE FIVE "I WILL'S"
  • 00:06:32.170 --> 00:06:33.260
  • ARE IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH.
  • 00:06:33.260 --> 00:06:35.250
  • THE FACT IS YOU CAN HAVE
  • 00:06:35.250 --> 00:06:37.050
  • THE ATTITUDE OF LUCIFER
  • 00:06:37.050 --> 00:06:38.270
  • AND CONFESS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:06:39.080 --> 00:06:42.080
  • WHEN YOUR WILL BECOMES GREATER
  • 00:06:42.080 --> 00:06:44.270
  • THAN GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:06:44.270 --> 00:06:46.120
  • YOU HAVE AN IDOLATRY PROBLEM.
  • 00:06:46.120 --> 00:06:48.240
  • WHEN JESUS AND THE 12 DISCIPLES
  • 00:06:48.240 --> 00:06:51.020
  • WERE REJECTED
  • 00:06:51.020 --> 00:06:51.260
  • BY THE SAMARITANS,
  • 00:06:51.260 --> 00:06:53.150
  • JAMES AND JOHN CAME TO JESUS
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:57.180
  • AND ASKED PERMISSION FROM JESUS
  • 00:06:57.180 --> 00:06:59.060
  • TO CALL FIRE DOWN ON THOSE
  • 00:06:59.060 --> 00:07:02.020
  • PEOPLE THAT WOULDN'T
  • 00:07:02.020 --> 00:07:02.280
  • ACCEPT THEM.
  • 00:07:02.280 --> 00:07:04.080
  • BURN THEM UP!
  • 00:07:04.080 --> 00:07:06.160
  • JESUS LOOKED AT THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:07:06.160 --> 00:07:09.010
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:07:09.010 --> 00:07:09.230
  • ASKING.
  • 00:07:09.230 --> 00:07:11.170
  • "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT MANNER
  • 00:07:11.170 --> 00:07:12.230
  • OF SPIRIT YOU'RE OF,"
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:14.020
  • LUKE 9:55.
  • 00:07:14.020 --> 00:07:16.210
  • SAINT PETER HAD LUCIFER'S
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:17.250
  • ATTITUDE.
  • 00:07:17.250 --> 00:07:18.140
  • PETER SAID TO JESUS,
  • 00:07:18.140 --> 00:07:19.260
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:19.260 --> 00:07:20.200
  • TO THE CROSS."
  • 00:07:20.200 --> 00:07:22.070
  • WHEN THE ROMAN SOLDIERS
  • 00:07:22.070 --> 00:07:23.150
  • IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
  • 00:07:23.150 --> 00:07:26.010
  • THREATENED TO TAKE HIM,
  • 00:07:26.010 --> 00:07:27.270
  • PETER SAID,
  • 00:07:27.270 --> 00:07:28.140
  • "WE'LL TAKE UP SWORDS
  • 00:07:28.140 --> 00:07:29.170
  • AND WE'LL DEFEND YOU."
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:31.220
  • JESUS LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:07:31.220 --> 00:07:33.000
  • "GET BEHIND ME SATAN."
  • 00:07:33.000 --> 00:07:34.160
  • WHY?
  • 00:07:34.160 --> 00:07:35.210
  • BECAUSE THE WHOLE PURPOSE
  • 00:07:35.210 --> 00:07:36.290
  • FOR CHRIST COMING INTO THE EARTH
  • 00:07:36.290 --> 00:07:39.180
  • WAS TO DIE ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:07:39.180 --> 00:07:41.250
  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION SAYS,
  • 00:07:41.250 --> 00:07:43.070
  • "FROM THE FOUNDATIONS
  • 00:07:43.070 --> 00:07:44.090
  • OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:07:44.090 --> 00:07:45.120
  • HE WAS PREDESTINED TO DIE AS
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:48.210
  • THE LAMB OF GOD THAT TOOK AWAY
  • 00:07:48.210 --> 00:07:50.260
  • THE SINS OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:52.220
  • AND WHEN PETER WAS SAYING,
  • 00:07:52.220 --> 00:07:53.260
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:53.260 --> 00:07:54.240
  • TO THE CROSS,"
  • 00:07:54.240 --> 00:07:56.060
  • THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT SATAN
  • 00:07:56.060 --> 00:07:58.010
  • DID NOT WANT TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:08:00.070
  • AND JESUS LOOKED AT
  • 00:08:00.070 --> 00:08:01.080
  • HIS FOLLOWER AND SAID,
  • 00:08:01.080 --> 00:08:03.080
  • "YOU ARE SPEAKING THE MESSAGE
  • 00:08:03.170 --> 00:08:06.170
  • OF SATAN IN MY EAR;
  • 00:08:06.170 --> 00:08:08.230
  • GET BEHIND ME."
  • 00:08:08.230 --> 00:08:10.050
  • TRANSLATION: SHUT UP.
  • 00:08:10.240 --> 00:08:13.240
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:15.040 --> 00:08:18.040
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:08:18.040 --> 00:08:19.160
  • IF YOUR ATTITUDE IS CONTROLLED
  • 00:08:19.160 --> 00:08:21.230
  • BY SATAN?
  • 00:08:21.230 --> 00:08:22.290
  • THE ANSWER IS,
  • 00:08:22.290 --> 00:08:24.050
  • WHEN YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD
  • 00:08:24.050 --> 00:08:25.270
  • FIRST.
  • 00:08:25.270 --> 00:08:27.000
  • WHEN YOUR WILL
  • 00:08:27.000 --> 00:08:27.290
  • IS NOT GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:08:28.100 --> 00:08:31.100
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU ARE
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:32.090
  • IN A DANGEROUS TERRITORY.
  • 00:08:32.170 --> 00:08:35.170
  • SATAN DID NOT PUT GOD FIRST.
  • 00:08:35.170 --> 00:08:37.240
  • AND EVEN THOUGH HE WAS
  • 00:08:37.240 --> 00:08:38.210
  • AN ARCHANGEL,
  • 00:08:38.210 --> 00:08:40.110
  • ONE OF THE TOP THREE IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:08:40.110 --> 00:08:42.070
  • GOD KICKED HIM OUT OF HEAVEN
  • 00:08:42.070 --> 00:08:44.000
  • AND HE BECAME THE DEVIL.
  • 00:08:44.000 --> 00:08:46.010
  • WHY?
  • 00:08:46.010 --> 00:08:46.260
  • BECAUSE HE WORSHIPED HIS WILL.
  • 00:08:46.260 --> 00:08:48.270
  • ADAM AND EVE HAD ONE THING
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:50.270
  • TO DO AND THEY BLEW THAT,
  • 00:08:50.270 --> 00:08:53.220
  • AND GOD KICKED THEM OUT
  • 00:08:53.220 --> 00:08:54.260
  • OF THE GARDEN FOR NOT PUTTING
  • 00:08:54.260 --> 00:08:57.050
  • HIS WILL FIRST.
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:08:58.270
  • EVE WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:00.170
  • ADAM WAS CURSED.
  • 00:09:00.170 --> 00:09:02.060
  • THE GROUND WAS CURSED.
  • 00:09:02.060 --> 00:09:03.230
  • "THORNS AND THISTLES
  • 00:09:03.230 --> 00:09:05.040
  • SHALL IT GROW."
  • 00:09:05.040 --> 00:09:06.080
  • AND THAT CURSE LIVES
  • 00:09:06.080 --> 00:09:07.250
  • UNTIL THIS DAY!
  • 00:09:07.250 --> 00:09:10.110
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:09:10.110 --> 00:09:12.140
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:09:12.140 --> 00:09:13.230
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD OF ALL,
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:16.050
  • THEN HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:18.280
  • CAN I GET A WITNESS TO THAT?
  • 00:09:19.020 --> 00:09:22.020
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:23.000 --> 00:09:26.000
  • NOW LET'S LOOK AT ABRAHAM.
  • 00:09:26.000 --> 00:09:27.200
  • WHY DID GOD CHOOSE ABRAHAM
  • 00:09:27.200 --> 00:09:29.020
  • TO BE THE FATHER OF ALL
  • 00:09:29.020 --> 00:09:30.000
  • WHO BELIEVE?
  • 00:09:30.000 --> 00:09:31.240
  • WHY IS IT THAT THOUSANDS
  • 00:09:31.240 --> 00:09:33.020
  • OF YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH,
  • 00:09:33.020 --> 00:09:34.220
  • PEOPLE STILL KNOW HIM BETTER
  • 00:09:34.220 --> 00:09:36.220
  • THAN MOST ANY PERSON
  • 00:09:36.220 --> 00:09:37.160
  • ON THE EARTH?
  • 00:09:37.160 --> 00:09:39.050
  • BECAUSE HE UNDERSTOOD THE LAW
  • 00:09:39.050 --> 00:09:40.160
  • OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:09:40.160 --> 00:09:42.020
  • WHEN ABRAHAM TIED ISAAC
  • 00:09:42.020 --> 00:09:43.240
  • AND PLACED HIM ON THE ALTAR
  • 00:09:43.240 --> 00:09:45.170
  • TO SACRIFICE HIM TO GOD,
  • 00:09:45.170 --> 00:09:47.230
  • HE LIFTED HIS DAGGER,
  • 00:09:47.230 --> 00:09:48.290
  • AND THE ANGEL OF GOD STOPPED
  • 00:09:48.290 --> 00:09:50.090
  • HIM.
  • 00:09:50.090 --> 00:09:51.140
  • AND THEN THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:09:51.140 --> 00:09:52.150
  • "I KNOW THAT YOU FEAR GOD,"
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:54.080
  • GENESIS 22:12.
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:56.100
  • THE LIVING BIBLE RENDERS
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:57.140
  • THIS VERSE THIS WAY;
  • 00:09:57.140 --> 00:09:58.220
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:58.220 --> 00:09:59.210
  • "I KNOW THAT GOD IS FIRST
  • 00:09:59.210 --> 00:10:01.210
  • IN YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:10:01.210 --> 00:10:03.200
  • ONLY WHEN YOU PUT GOD FIRST
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:06.050
  • IS GOD ABLE TO PROVIDE
  • 00:10:06.050 --> 00:10:08.060
  • WHAT HE PROMISES.
  • 00:10:08.060 --> 00:10:10.160
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:10.160 --> 00:10:12.050
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:10:12.050 --> 00:10:13.070

  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:50.160
  • WERE TO BE BURNED AS AN OFFERING
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:52.040
  • UPON THE ALTAR.
  • 00:11:52.040 --> 00:11:53.110
  • IN LEVITICUS 1,
  • 00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:54.160
  • GOD DESIGNATED FIVE DIFFERENT
  • 00:11:54.160 --> 00:11:56.080
  • ANIMALS THAT WERE ACCEPTABLE
  • 00:11:56.080 --> 00:11:58.150
  • FOR SACRIFICES.
  • 00:11:58.150 --> 00:12:00.070
  • THE FIVE CLEAN ANIMALS WERE
  • 00:12:00.070 --> 00:12:01.270
  • OXEN, GOATS, SHEEP,
  • 00:12:01.270 --> 00:12:03.290
  • PIGEONS, AND TURTLE DOVES.
  • 00:12:03.290 --> 00:12:06.020
  • AND THE ANIMAL YOU SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:06.020 --> 00:12:08.180
  • WAS A REFLECTION
  • 00:12:08.180 --> 00:12:10.080
  • OF YOUR FINANCIAL ABILITY.
  • 00:12:10.080 --> 00:12:12.150
  • BUT THIS WAS THE COMMAND
  • 00:12:12.150 --> 00:12:13.260
  • TO EVERY PERSON IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:12:13.260 --> 00:12:16.010
  • "DON'T COME EMPTY HANDED
  • 00:12:16.010 --> 00:12:18.260
  • BEFORE THE LORD."
  • 00:12:18.260 --> 00:12:21.050
  • IF ALL YOU CAN AFFORD IS A BIRD,
  • 00:12:21.200 --> 00:12:24.200
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:12:24.200 --> 00:12:27.000
  • IF YOU CAN AFFORD A THOUSAND
  • 00:12:27.000 --> 00:12:28.200
  • OXEN AS SOLOMON,
  • 00:12:28.200 --> 00:12:30.170
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:12:30.170 --> 00:12:32.040
  • BUT DO NOT COME EMPTY HANDED.
  • 00:12:32.180 --> 00:12:35.180
  • IN THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:12:35.180 --> 00:12:36.230
  • EVERYTHING IS EITHER SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:36.230 --> 00:12:39.020
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:39.020 --> 00:12:39.270
  • GET THOSE TWO WORDS,
  • 00:12:39.270 --> 00:12:41.220
  • "SACRIFICED" OR "REDEEMED."
  • 00:12:41.230 --> 00:12:44.230
  • EXODUS 13:2,
  • 00:12:44.230 --> 00:12:46.080
  • "CONSECRATE TO ME
  • 00:12:46.080 --> 00:12:47.170
  • ALL THE FIRSTBORN.
  • 00:12:47.170 --> 00:12:49.130
  • WHATEVER OPENS THE WOMB
  • 00:12:49.130 --> 00:12:50.250
  • AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:12:50.250 --> 00:12:52.060
  • BOTH OF MEN AND BEASTS,
  • 00:12:52.060 --> 00:12:53.200
  • IT IS MINE."
  • 00:12:53.200 --> 00:12:56.020
  • I'M READING THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:56.020 --> 00:12:57.200
  • ACCORDING TO OLD TESTAMENT LAW,
  • 00:12:57.200 --> 00:12:59.200
  • THE FIRSTBORN WAS TO BE EITHER
  • 00:12:59.200 --> 00:13:01.160
  • SACRIFICED OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:13:01.160 --> 00:13:03.120
  • THERE WAS NO THIRD OPTION.
  • 00:13:03.120 --> 00:13:05.160
  • FAST FORWARD
  • 00:13:05.160 --> 00:13:06.080
  • TO THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:13:06.080 --> 00:13:07.190
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST MEETS
  • 00:13:07.190 --> 00:13:09.250
  • JESUS CHRIST ON THE BANKS
  • 00:13:09.250 --> 00:13:11.120
  • OF THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 00:13:11.120 --> 00:13:13.020
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:13.240
  • "BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
  • 00:13:13.240 --> 00:13:15.030
  • THAT TAKES AWAY THE SIN
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:16.110
  • OF THE WORLD,"
  • 00:13:16.110 --> 00:13:17.180
  • JOHN 1:29.
  • 00:13:17.180 --> 00:13:19.150
  • JESUS WAS GOD'S ONLY
  • 00:13:19.150 --> 00:13:20.260
  • BEGOTTEN SON.
  • 00:13:20.260 --> 00:13:22.180
  • HE HAD TO BE SACRIFICED
  • 00:13:22.180 --> 00:13:24.280
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:13:24.280 --> 00:13:26.110
  • GOD ALLOWED HIS SON,
  • 00:13:26.110 --> 00:13:28.110
  • A MALE LAMB,
  • 00:13:28.110 --> 00:13:29.240
  • WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE,
  • 00:13:29.240 --> 00:13:31.220
  • TO BE SACRIFICED FOR THE SINS
  • 00:13:31.220 --> 00:13:33.200
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:13:33.200 --> 00:13:35.000
  • THE POINT IS,
  • 00:13:35.000 --> 00:13:36.030
  • IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT CHRIST AS
  • 00:13:36.030 --> 00:13:38.170
  • YOUR SUBSTITUTE ON THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:38.170 --> 00:13:41.050
  • YOU MUST DIE FOR YOUR SIN,
  • 00:13:42.080 --> 00:13:45.080
  • BECAUSE THE WAGES OF SIN IS
  • 00:13:45.080 --> 00:13:48.030
  • DEATH.
  • 00:13:48.030 --> 00:13:49.160
  • JESUS PAID THE BILL FOR US
  • 00:13:49.160 --> 00:13:52.090
  • TO BE REDEEMED FROM THE POWER
  • 00:13:52.090 --> 00:13:54.190
  • OF SIN AND DARKNESS.
  • 00:13:54.190 --> 00:13:56.110
  • BECAUSE OF THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:56.110 --> 00:13:58.020
  • WE ARE FREE,
  • 00:13:58.020 --> 00:13:59.100
  • WE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 00:13:59.100 --> 00:14:01.020
  • WE HAVE HEALING FROM SICKNESS
  • 00:14:01.020 --> 00:14:03.000
  • AND DISEASE.
  • 00:14:03.000 --> 00:14:04.110
  • THERE IS VICTORY OVER
  • 00:14:04.110 --> 00:14:05.290
  • THE WORLD, THE FLESH,
  • 00:14:05.290 --> 00:14:07.090
  • AND THE DEVIL.
  • 00:14:07.090 --> 00:14:08.110
  • THERE'S THE PROSPERITY
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:10.050
  • OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:14:10.050 --> 00:14:11.130
  • THE PEACE OF GOD THAT SURPASSES
  • 00:14:11.130 --> 00:14:13.250
  • UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:14:13.250 --> 00:14:15.070
  • HALLELUJAH FOR THE CROSS!
  • 00:14:15.070 --> 00:14:17.060
  • GIVE HIM PRAISE AND GLORY
  • 00:14:17.060 --> 00:14:18.240
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:14:18.240 --> 00:14:21.040
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:25.100
  • CONCERNING FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:14:25.100 --> 00:14:27.050
  • WHATEVER IS DONE
  • 00:14:27.050 --> 00:14:28.090
  • WITH FIRST FRUITS DETERMINES

  • SO FOLLOW THIS;
  • 00:14:33.210 --> 00:14:35.070
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRSTBORN SON
  • 00:14:35.070 --> 00:14:36.260
  • OF ABRAHAM.
  • 00:14:36.260 --> 00:14:38.070
  • AS FIRSTBORN,
  • 00:14:38.070 --> 00:14:40.020
  • HE WAS TO BE REDEEMED
  • 00:14:40.020 --> 00:14:42.030
  • OR SACRIFICED.
  • 00:14:42.030 --> 00:14:43.270
  • WHEN ABRAHAM PUT ISAAC
  • 00:14:43.270 --> 00:14:45.030
  • ON THE ALTAR,
  • 00:14:45.030 --> 00:14:47.040
  • GOD SENT A RAM TIED BY THE
  • 00:14:47.040 --> 00:14:49.240
  • HORNS IN A THICKET TO REDEEM
  • 00:14:50.080 --> 00:14:53.080
  • ISAAC.
  • 00:14:53.080 --> 00:14:54.220
  • WHEN THE FIRST FRUITS WAS
  • 00:14:54.220 --> 00:14:55.280
  • GIVEN,
  • 00:14:55.280 --> 00:14:56.180
  • IT BRINGS A MIGHTY HARVEST.
  • 00:14:56.180 --> 00:14:58.130
  • FOLLOW THE HISTORY.
  • 00:14:58.130 --> 00:15:00.110
  • WHATEVER IS DONE WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:15:00.110 --> 00:15:01.280
  • PORTION DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:15:01.280 --> 00:15:04.120
  • TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:15:04.120 --> 00:15:06.020
  • WE GO TO CHURCH
  • 00:15:06.020 --> 00:15:07.000
  • ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:15:07.000 --> 00:15:08.180
  • IT DETERMINES THE QUALITY
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:11.010
  • OF THE REST OF THE SIX DAYS.
  • 00:15:11.010 --> 00:15:13.180
  • YOU GIVE TO GOD YOUR TITHE
  • 00:15:13.180 --> 00:15:15.220
  • FIRST,
  • 00:15:15.220 --> 00:15:16.170
  • AND HE BLESSES WHAT IS LEFT.
  • 00:15:16.170 --> 00:15:19.080
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:15:19.080 --> 00:15:21.180
  • HE HAD TWO SONS,
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:22.280
  • JACOB AND ESAU.
  • 00:15:22.280 --> 00:15:24.170
  • JACOB HAD 12 SONS,
  • 00:15:24.170 --> 00:15:26.160
  • AND THEIR DESCENDANTS BECAME
  • 00:15:26.160 --> 00:15:28.090
  • THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:15:28.090 --> 00:15:30.160
  • GOD SENT JOSEPH INTO EGYPT
  • 00:15:30.160 --> 00:15:32.250
  • WHERE HE BECAME
  • 00:15:32.250 --> 00:15:33.170
  • THE PRIME MINISTER.
  • 00:15:33.170 --> 00:15:35.000
  • JOSEPH SENT FOR HIS FAMILY,
  • 00:15:35.000 --> 00:15:36.270
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO WERE 70
  • 00:15:36.270 --> 00:15:39.050
  • IN NUMBER.
  • 00:15:39.050 --> 00:15:40.100
  • AND THEY STAYED IN EGYPT
  • 00:15:40.100 --> 00:15:42.010
  • FOR 430 YEARS.
  • 00:15:42.010 --> 00:15:44.130
  • THEY BECAME A MIGHTY NATION
  • 00:15:44.130 --> 00:15:46.210
  • OF ALMOST TWO MILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:46.210 --> 00:15:49.000
  • EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE
  • 00:15:49.000 --> 00:15:50.010
  • PERSECUTED,
  • 00:15:50.010 --> 00:15:51.120
  • THEY PROSPERED AND THEY GREW.
  • 00:15:51.120 --> 00:15:53.230
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:53.230 --> 00:15:54.230
  • BECAUSE THE FIRST FRUIT,
  • 00:15:54.230 --> 00:15:56.150
  • ISAAC ON MOUNT MORIAH,
  • 00:15:56.150 --> 00:15:58.290
  • HAD BEEN GIVEN TO GOD.
  • 00:15:58.290 --> 00:16:00.240
  • AND WHAT YOU DO WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:16:00.240 --> 00:16:02.070
  • FRUIT DETERMINES THE GUARANTEE
  • 00:16:02.070 --> 00:16:05.000
  • OF EVERYTHING THAT COMES
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:06.070
  • AFTER IT!
  • 00:16:06.070 --> 00:16:07.010
  • THAT'S WHY THEY ARE BLESSED
  • 00:16:07.010 --> 00:16:08.240
  • AND ALWAYS WILL BE BLESSED,
  • 00:16:08.240 --> 00:16:11.000
  • BECAUSE GOD IS KEEPING
  • 00:16:11.000 --> 00:16:12.230
  • HIS COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM!
  • 00:16:12.230 --> 00:16:14.240
  • GIVE THE LORD A SHOUT OF PRAISE
  • 00:16:14.240 --> 00:16:16.230
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:16:16.230 --> 00:16:18.220
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:16:20.130 --> 00:16:23.130
  • NOW LET ME SHOW YOU HOW THAT
  • 00:16:23.130 --> 00:16:24.080
  • WORKS IN REVERSE.
  • 00:16:24.080 --> 00:16:25.260
  • IF YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD FIRST,
  • 00:16:25.260 --> 00:16:28.060
  • IT DOESN'T STOP
  • 00:16:28.060 --> 00:16:29.040
  • GOD FROM BEING FIRST;
  • 00:16:29.040 --> 00:16:31.240
  • IT ONLY RELEASES THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:16:31.240 --> 00:16:33.230
  • OF GOD UPON YOU.
  • 00:16:33.230 --> 00:16:35.220
  • IT RELEASES THE CURSE UPON
  • 00:16:35.220 --> 00:16:37.280
  • EVERYTHING YOU PUT YOUR HANDS
  • 00:16:37.280 --> 00:16:39.140
  • TO FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:16:39.140 --> 00:16:42.020
  • UNTIL YOU GET YOUR ACT
  • 00:16:42.020 --> 00:16:43.040
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:16:43.040 --> 00:16:44.120
  • THE ONLY WAY OUT IS REDEMPTION,
  • 00:16:44.120 --> 00:16:46.220
  • WHICH MEANS TO BUY BACK
  • 00:16:46.220 --> 00:16:48.180
  • FROM DESTRUCTION BY OBEYING
  • 00:16:48.180 --> 00:16:51.060
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:51.290 --> 00:16:54.290
  • WOW.
  • 00:16:54.290 --> 00:16:57.050
  • CONSIDER THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:16:57.050 --> 00:16:58.230
  • AND THE FALL OF JERICHO.
  • 00:16:58.230 --> 00:17:00.220
  • FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS
  • 00:17:00.220 --> 00:17:01.250
  • OF SLAVERY IN EGYPT WAS
  • 00:17:01.250 --> 00:17:03.050
  • FOLLOWED BY 40 YEARS OF HEAT
  • 00:17:03.250 --> 00:17:06.250
  • AND GRIT IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:17:06.250 --> 00:17:09.090
  • WITH JOSHUA AS THEIR LEADER,
  • 00:17:09.090 --> 00:17:11.120
  • GOD RELEASED A PLAN THAT WOULD
  • 00:17:11.120 --> 00:17:13.110
  • BEGIN THE CONQUEST
  • 00:17:13.110 --> 00:17:15.020
  • OF THE HOLY LAND.
  • 00:17:15.020 --> 00:17:16.200
  • THINK OF JERICHO
  • 00:17:16.200 --> 00:17:17.250
  • AS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:17:17.250 --> 00:17:19.010
  • JERICHO'S THE CITY.
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:21.140
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY
  • 00:17:21.140 --> 00:17:22.250
  • THAT STOOD BETWEEN ISRAEL
  • 00:17:22.250 --> 00:17:24.250
  • AND THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:17:24.250 --> 00:17:27.090
  • GOD MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE WAS
  • 00:17:27.090 --> 00:17:29.060
  • GIVING JERICHO TO THE JEWISH
  • 00:17:29.060 --> 00:17:31.240
  • PEOPLE AS A GIFT,
  • 00:17:31.240 --> 00:17:33.270
  • BECAUSE THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:17:33.270 --> 00:17:35.040
  • "I'M GOING TO FIGHT FOR YOU."
  • 00:17:35.040 --> 00:17:37.190
  • THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:38.230
  • THAT WAS FORBIDDEN?
  • 00:17:38.230 --> 00:17:39.280
  • JOSHUA 6:18 AND 19,
  • 00:17:39.280 --> 00:17:42.130
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:17:42.130 --> 00:17:43.040
  • "THE GOLD AND THE SILVER
  • 00:17:43.040 --> 00:17:44.260
  • OF JERICHO BELONG TO ME.
  • 00:17:45.030 --> 00:17:48.030
  • AND YOU, BY ALL MEANS,
  • 00:17:48.030 --> 00:17:49.250
  • ABSTAIN FROM THE ACCURSED THING,
  • 00:17:49.250 --> 00:17:52.060
  • LEST YOU BECOME ACCURSED WHEN
  • 00:17:52.060 --> 00:17:54.170
  • YOU TAKE THE ACCURSED THING AND
  • 00:17:54.170 --> 00:17:56.080
  • MAKE THE CAMP OF ISRAEL A CURSE
  • 00:17:56.080 --> 00:17:59.000
  • AND A PLACE OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:17:59.080 --> 00:18:02.100
  • BUT ALL THE GOLD,
  • 00:18:02.100 --> 00:18:03.210
  • AND ALL THE SILVER,
  • 00:18:03.210 --> 00:18:05.080
  • AND ALL THE VESSELS OF IRON,
  • 00:18:05.080 --> 00:18:07.130
  • ARE CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:18:07.130 --> 00:18:09.160
  • THEY SHALL COME INTO
  • 00:18:09.160 --> 00:18:10.240
  • THE TREASURY OF THE LORD."
  • 00:18:10.240 --> 00:18:13.100
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:18:13.100 --> 00:18:14.140
  • BECAUSE ISRAEL FULLY UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:18:14.140 --> 00:18:16.090
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:18:16.090 --> 00:18:17.220
  • THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:18:17.220 --> 00:18:19.130
  • IN JERICHO BELONGED
  • 00:18:19.130 --> 00:18:21.010
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:18:21.010 --> 00:18:21.290
  • KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF IT,
  • 00:18:21.290 --> 00:18:23.080
  • BECAUSE GOD WAS GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:18:23.080 --> 00:18:24.210
  • YOU EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WOULD
  • 00:18:24.210 --> 00:18:26.010
  • COME AFTER IT.
  • 00:18:26.010 --> 00:18:27.020
  • EVERYBODY GOT THE MESSAGE
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:29.050
  • BUT ONE GUY, ACHAN,
  • 00:18:30.000 --> 00:18:33.000
  • BECAUSE HE WAS THE SMART ALECK
  • 00:18:33.000 --> 00:18:35.110
  • WHO KNEW BETTER.
  • 00:18:35.110 --> 00:18:36.270
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE RELATIVES
  • 00:18:36.270 --> 00:18:38.030
  • THAT ALWAYS KNOW BETTER?
  • 00:18:38.030 --> 00:18:40.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:40.250 --> 00:18:41.140
  • THEY ALWAYS HAVE THE BETTER
  • 00:18:41.140 --> 00:18:42.180
  • IDEA,
  • 00:18:42.180 --> 00:18:43.190
  • AND IT ALWAYS TURNS OUT
  • 00:18:43.190 --> 00:18:44.270
  • TO BE A DISASTER.
  • 00:18:44.270 --> 00:18:46.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:46.250 --> 00:18:47.150
  • THE BATTLE OF AI,
  • 00:18:47.150 --> 00:18:48.110
  • ISRAEL'S ARMY WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:18:48.240 --> 00:18:51.240
  • JOSHUA INQUIRED OF THE LORD,
  • 00:18:51.240 --> 00:18:53.180
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:18:53.180 --> 00:18:54.050
  • "GET UP;
  • 00:18:54.050 --> 00:18:54.220
  • THERE'S SIN IN THE CAMP."
  • 00:18:54.220 --> 00:18:56.070
  • AND THEY WENT TENT BY TENT
  • 00:18:56.070 --> 00:18:58.020
  • SEARCHING.
  • 00:18:58.020 --> 00:18:59.030
  • THEY SEARCHED 11 TRIBES.
  • 00:18:59.030 --> 00:19:01.220
  • AND THEY REACHED ACHAN'S TRIBE.
  • 00:19:01.220 --> 00:19:04.060
  • THE TRIBE OF JUDAH WAS LAST.
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:06.060
  • AND THEY CAME TO HIS TENT,
  • 00:19:06.060 --> 00:19:07.240
  • AND JOSHUA COMMANDED ACHAN
  • 00:19:07.240 --> 00:19:09.190
  • IN JOSHUA 7:19,
  • 00:19:09.190 --> 00:19:11.190
  • "GIVE GOD THE GLORY."
  • 00:19:11.190 --> 00:19:13.130
  • THAT MEANS THE THINGS
  • 00:19:13.130 --> 00:19:14.140
  • YOU'VE STOLEN,
  • 00:19:14.140 --> 00:19:15.230
  • GIVE THEM BACK.
  • 00:19:15.230 --> 00:19:17.050
  • ACHAN HAD STOLEN THE GLORY
  • 00:19:17.050 --> 00:19:18.200
  • OF GOD BECAUSE HE TOOK
  • 00:19:18.200 --> 00:19:19.230
  • THE THINGS THAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:19:19.230 --> 00:19:22.010
  • THE RESULT WAS THAT ACHAN,
  • 00:19:22.030 --> 00:19:25.030
  • HIS WIFE,
  • 00:19:25.030 --> 00:19:26.160
  • HIS SONS,
  • 00:19:26.160 --> 00:19:27.060
  • HIS DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:27.290
  • HIS LIVESTOCK,
  • 00:19:27.290 --> 00:19:29.090
  • WERE STONED TO DEATH
  • 00:19:29.090 --> 00:19:30.150
  • BY ALL OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:19:30.150 --> 00:19:32.100
  • AND THEY STACKED THEIR BODIES
  • 00:19:32.100 --> 00:19:33.240
  • IN A PILE AND BURNED THEM WITH
  • 00:19:33.240 --> 00:19:35.160
  • FIRE TO PURGE ISRAEL OF THE SIN
  • 00:19:35.260 --> 00:19:38.260
  • OF TAKING WHAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:19:38.260 --> 00:19:41.180
  • THINK ABOUT THIS STORY.
  • 00:19:41.180 --> 00:19:43.000
  • BECAUSE OF ONE MAN'S
  • 00:19:43.000 --> 00:19:44.100
  • DISOBEDIENCE,
  • 00:19:44.100 --> 00:19:45.150
  • THE ENTIRE NATION SUFFERED
  • 00:19:45.150 --> 00:19:47.200
  • THE CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:19:47.200 --> 00:19:49.090
  • THEY HAD TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:19:49.090 --> 00:19:50.210
  • THE ACHAN FACTOR.
  • 00:19:50.210 --> 00:19:53.110
  • ARE YOU TAKING WHAT BELONGS
  • 00:19:53.110 --> 00:19:54.210
  • TO THE LORD?
  • 00:19:54.210 --> 00:19:56.100
  • IS YOUR FAMILY OR YOUR CHILDREN?
  • 00:19:56.100 --> 00:19:58.160
  • WILL GENERATIONS AFTER YOU
  • 00:19:58.160 --> 00:20:00.170
  • SUFFER BECAUSE OF YOUR REFUSAL
  • 00:20:00.170 --> 00:20:03.010
  • TO OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:20:03.010 --> 00:20:04.020
  • OF FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:20:04.020 --> 00:20:05.230
  • IF THE CHURCH IS ONE BODY
  • 00:20:05.230 --> 00:20:07.100
  • FITLY JOINED TOGETHER,
  • 00:20:07.100 --> 00:20:09.060
  • THEN YOUR DISOBEDIENCE AFFECTS
  • 00:20:09.060 --> 00:20:10.260
  • THE WHOLE BODY.
  • 00:20:10.260 --> 00:20:11.280
  • IF ONE MAN AFFECTED TWO MILLION
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:13.210
  • PEOPLE IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:20:13.210 --> 00:20:15.000
  • CERTAINLY ONE MAN
  • 00:20:15.000 --> 00:20:16.010
  • CAN AFFECT 22.000 HERE
  • 00:20:16.010 --> 00:20:17.290
  • AT CORNERSTONE CHURCH.
  • 00:20:17.290 --> 00:20:20.070
  • THIS EXPLAINS WHY SOME CHURCHES
  • 00:20:20.070 --> 00:20:22.030
  • DO NOT FINANCIALLY PROSPER.
  • 00:20:22.030 --> 00:20:24.090
  • WHEN ISRAEL WAS IN THE DESERT,
  • 00:20:24.090 --> 00:20:25.220
  • ALL THEY HAD WAS MANNA.
  • 00:20:25.220 --> 00:20:27.120
  • NONE OF THEIR CLOTHES WORE OUT.
  • 00:20:27.120 --> 00:20:29.010
  • THEY WERE NOT SICK NOR FEEBLE,
  • 00:20:29.010 --> 00:20:30.220
  • NO ONE, FOR 40 YEARS.
  • 00:20:30.270 --> 00:20:33.270
  • GOD'S ABUNDANCE WILL BE
  • 00:20:33.270 --> 00:20:35.210
  • WITHHELD FROM THE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:38.160
  • REFUSE TO HONOR HIM AS FIRST.
  • 00:20:38.280 --> 00:20:41.280
  • THE SPIRIT OF ACHAN TAKES WHAT
  • 00:20:41.280 --> 00:20:43.170
  • BELONGS TO GOD AND KEEPS IT
  • 00:20:43.170 --> 00:20:45.240
  • FOR HIMSELF AT THE EXPENSE
  • 00:20:45.240 --> 00:20:48.120
  • OF OTHERS.
  • 00:20:48.120 --> 00:20:50.010
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:20:50.010 --> 00:20:51.030
  • AND TITHING.
  • 00:20:51.030 --> 00:20:51.270
  • TITHING IS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:51.270 --> 00:20:53.200
  • LET'S REVIEW WHAT WE'VE
  • 00:20:53.200 --> 00:20:54.190
  • LEARNED.
  • 00:20:54.190 --> 00:20:55.210
  • THE FIRST FRUITS INCLUDE
  • 00:20:55.210 --> 00:20:56.250
  • CHILDREN, ANIMALS, CROPS,
  • 00:20:56.250 --> 00:20:59.060
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:20:59.060 --> 00:21:01.010
  • GOD SIMPLY SAYS,
  • 00:21:01.010 --> 00:21:02.040
  • I WANT TO BE THE FIRST
  • 00:21:02.040 --> 00:21:03.070
  • OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:21:03.070 --> 00:21:04.120
  • WHEN GOD DESTROYED JERICHO,
  • 00:21:04.120 --> 00:21:06.040
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY CONQUERED
  • 00:21:06.040 --> 00:21:07.290
  • ON THE WAY
  • 00:21:07.290 --> 00:21:08.150
  • TO THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:21:08.150 --> 00:21:09.210
  • IT WAS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:21:09.210 --> 00:21:10.270
  • AND GOD SAYS, IT'S MINE.
  • 00:21:10.270 --> 00:21:13.050
  • YOUR INCOME IS EITHER
  • 00:21:13.050 --> 00:21:14.210
  • CONSECRATED OR CURSED.
  • 00:21:14.210 --> 00:21:17.160
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:21:17.160 --> 00:21:18.140
  • IT'S EITHER CONSECRATED
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:19.270
  • OR CURSED.
  • 00:21:19.270 --> 00:21:20.190
  • THE TITHE, IN THE SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:21:20.190 --> 00:21:22.130
  • IS CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:21:22.130 --> 00:21:24.110
  • IF YOU KEEP IT FOR YOURSELF,
  • 00:21:24.110 --> 00:21:26.100
  • IT BECOMES A --
  • 00:21:26.100 --> 00:21:28.020
  • [Curse.]
  • 00:21:28.020 --> 00:21:28.250
  • -- CURSE,
  • 00:21:28.250 --> 00:21:30.110
  • BECAUSE IT'S STOLEN FROM GOD.
  • 00:21:30.110 --> 00:21:33.100
  • GOD MAKES THAT CLEAR
  • 00:21:33.100 --> 00:21:34.180
  • IN MALACHI 3:8 AND 9.
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:37.020
  • "WILL A MAN ROB GOD?
  • 00:21:37.020 --> 00:21:38.060
  • YOU'VE ROBBED ME.
  • 00:21:38.060 --> 00:21:39.240
  • HOW DID WE ROB YOU?"
  • 00:21:39.240 --> 00:21:41.100
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:21:41.100 --> 00:21:41.290
  • "YOU HAVE STOLEN THE TITHE
  • 00:21:41.290 --> 00:21:44.190
  • AND THE OFFERING FROM ME.
  • 00:21:44.190 --> 00:21:46.010
  • YOU ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE;
  • 00:21:46.010 --> 00:21:47.180
  • FOR YOU HAVE ROBBED ME."
  • 00:21:48.050 --> 00:21:51.050
  • THE TITHE IS A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:52.110 --> 00:21:55.110
  • IT'S NOT A DEBT WE OWE;
  • 00:21:55.110 --> 00:21:56.220
  • IT'S A SEED WE SOW.
  • 00:21:56.220 --> 00:21:59.080
  • WHEREVER THERE IS THE NUMBER
  • 00:21:59.080 --> 00:22:00.120
  • OF TEN INVOLVED,
  • 00:22:00.120 --> 00:22:02.020
  • THERE'S A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:22:02.020 --> 00:22:04.070
  • THE PLAGUES WERE USED TO SET
  • 00:22:04.070 --> 00:22:05.220
  • ISRAEL FREE FROM PHARAOH,
  • 00:22:05.220 --> 00:22:07.160
  • TEN PLAGUES.
  • 00:22:07.160 --> 00:22:08.230
  • TEN COMMANDMENTS WERE GIVEN
  • 00:22:08.230 --> 00:22:10.080
  • TO SET THE WORLD FREE
  • 00:22:10.080 --> 00:22:12.050
  • FROM THE TYRANNY OF EVIL.
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:14.070
  • TEN DONKEYS WERE SENT BY JOSEPH
  • 00:22:14.070 --> 00:22:16.090
  • TO BRING JACOB AND ALL OF
  • 00:22:16.090 --> 00:22:18.130
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY
  • 00:22:18.130 --> 00:22:20.160
  • TO THE LANDS OF EGYPT.
  • 00:22:20.160 --> 00:22:22.110
  • THE TENTH PART OF YOUR INCREASE
  • 00:22:22.110 --> 00:22:24.130
  • IS THE REDEMPTION
  • 00:22:24.130 --> 00:22:25.080
  • OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:22:25.080 --> 00:22:26.120
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GIVE 10%
  • 00:22:26.200 --> 00:22:29.200
  • OF YOUR INCOME
  • 00:22:29.200 --> 00:22:30.250
  • AND NOT GIVE THE FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:22:30.250 --> 00:22:32.270
  • THAT'S A QUESTION.
  • 00:22:32.270 --> 00:22:33.250
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:33.250 --> 00:22:35.210
  • LET'S PRETEND FOR JUST A MOMENT
  • 00:22:35.210 --> 00:22:37.120
  • THAT EACH ONE OF THESE ONE
  • 00:22:37.120 --> 00:22:39.220
  • DOLLAR BILLS IS A HUNDRED
  • 00:22:39.220 --> 00:22:42.000
  • DOLLAR BILL.
  • 00:22:42.000 --> 00:22:42.220
  • THIS IS A LOW BUCKET
  • 00:22:42.220 --> 00:22:44.080
  • ILLUSTRATION HERE.
  • 00:22:44.080 --> 00:22:45.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:45.280 --> 00:22:46.110
  • THE QUESTION IS;
  • 00:22:46.110 --> 00:22:47.140
  • CAN YOU GIVE GOD A TENTH
  • 00:22:47.140 --> 00:22:48.190
  • AND NOT PAY TITHE?
  • 00:22:48.190 --> 00:22:49.230
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:49.230 --> 00:22:52.090
  • IF YOU SIT DOWN TO PAY
  • 00:22:52.090 --> 00:22:53.130
  • YOUR BILLS,
  • 00:22:53.130 --> 00:22:54.050
  • AND YOU DO YOUR HOUSE NOTE,
  • 00:22:54.050 --> 00:22:56.140
  • YOUR CAR NOTE,
  • 00:22:56.140 --> 00:22:57.120
  • YOUR TWO CAR NOTES,

  • YOUR POODLE SHAMPOO,

  • TO HIM.
  • 00:23:12.040 --> 00:23:12.200
  • AND IF HE WANTED,
  • 00:23:12.200 --> 00:23:13.100
  • HE'D GET IT ALL.
  • 00:23:13.100 --> 00:23:15.190
  • WHAT HE WANTS IS THIS ONE.
  • 00:23:15.190 --> 00:23:18.120
  • THIS IS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:23:18.120 --> 00:23:20.260
  • WHEN HE GETS THIS ONE,
  • 00:23:20.260 --> 00:23:22.090
  • ALL OF THESE ARE CONSECRATED.
  • 00:23:22.090 --> 00:23:25.060
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:23:30.140 --> 00:23:33.140

  • HIS ABUNDANCE,
  • 00:23:35.090 --> 00:23:37.040
  • UNLIMITED VICTORY,

  • UNLIMITED FAVOR,
  • 00:23:46.170 --> 00:23:49.090

  • 00:29:07.150 --> 00:29:08.200
  • BUSINESSMEN BECAUSE THEY WORK
  • 00:29:08.200 --> 00:29:10.010
  • AT BEING GOOD BUSINESSMEN.
  • 00:29:10.010 --> 00:29:11.260
  • GOOD HUSBANDS AND GOOD WIVES
  • 00:29:11.260 --> 00:29:13.220
  • DID NOT BECOME GOOD HUSBANDS
  • 00:29:13.220 --> 00:29:15.000
  • AND WIVES BECAUSE THEY WERE
  • 00:29:15.000 --> 00:29:16.060
  • THE LUCKY ONES.
  • 00:29:16.060 --> 00:29:17.050
  • THEY WORKED AT DOING WHAT WAS
  • 00:29:17.050 --> 00:29:19.090
  • REQUIRED IN ORDER TO BUILD
  • 00:29:19.090 --> 00:29:21.130
  • A GOOD FAMILY.
  • 00:29:21.130 --> 00:29:23.230
  • SO IN ORDER TO HELP US
  • 00:29:23.230 --> 00:29:24.250
  • UNDERSTAND THE BROKEN BORDERS
  • 00:29:24.250 --> 00:29:26.110
  • OF MARRIAGE AND WHAT WE NEED
  • 00:29:26.110 --> 00:29:27.150
  • TO DO,
  • 00:29:27.150 --> 00:29:28.040
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO TO
  • 00:29:28.040 --> 00:29:29.090
  • THE SONG OF SOLOMON.
  • 00:29:29.090 --> 00:29:30.160
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO TO PSALMS
  • 00:29:30.160 --> 00:29:31.260
  • OR PROVERBS WHERE ALL
  • 00:29:31.260 --> 00:29:33.000
  • OF THE LOVE VERSES ARE FOUND.
  • 00:29:33.000 --> 00:29:34.260
  • I'M GOING TO LOOK AT THE LIFE
  • 00:29:34.260 --> 00:29:36.130
  • OF NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:29:36.130 --> 00:29:37.050
  • BECAUSE HE WAS A WALL BUILDER.
  • 00:29:37.160 --> 00:29:40.160
  • AND I WANT YOU TO SEE
  • 00:29:40.160 --> 00:29:41.140
  • THE PRINCIPLES THAT HE USED
  • 00:29:41.140 --> 00:29:43.080
  • IN HIS CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
  • 00:29:43.080 --> 00:29:44.280
  • AND ALLOW THEM TO BLESS YOU
  • 00:29:44.280 --> 00:29:47.170
  • IN YOUR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
  • 00:29:47.170 --> 00:29:49.110
  • WHEN IT COMES TO BUILDING
  • 00:29:49.110 --> 00:29:50.240
  • A GOOD FAMILY,
  • 00:29:50.240 --> 00:29:52.170
  • BECAUSE THE BORDERS
  • 00:29:52.170 --> 00:29:53.170
  • OF THE FAMILY IN THIS NATION
  • 00:29:53.170 --> 00:29:55.190
  • ARE BROKEN.
  • 00:29:55.190 --> 00:29:57.100
  • AND BY GOD'S GRACE,
  • 00:29:57.100 --> 00:29:58.120
  • BY THE TIME THIS SERVICE
  • 00:29:58.120 --> 00:29:59.100
  • IS OVER,
  • 00:29:59.100 --> 00:29:59.240
  • WE WILL ALL UNDERSTAND WHAT OUR
  • 00:29:59.240 --> 00:30:01.190
  • RESPONSIBILITY IS TO SEE THEM
  • 00:30:01.190 --> 00:30:03.220
  • REBUILT IN AMERICA TODAY.
  • 00:30:03.230 --> 00:30:06.230
  • LET'S READ NEHEMIAH 2:17.
  • 00:30:07.030 --> 00:30:10.030
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:30:10.030 --> 00:30:10.260
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:30:10.260 --> 00:30:11.240
  • "THEN I SAID TO THEM,
  • 00:30:11.240 --> 00:30:14.110
  • 'YOU SEE THE DISTRESS
  • 00:30:14.110 --> 00:30:16.110
  • THAT WE ARE IN,
  • 00:30:16.110 --> 00:30:17.170
  • HOW JERUSALEM LIES WASTE
  • 00:30:17.170 --> 00:30:19.100
  • AND ITS GATES ARE BURDENED
  • 00:30:19.100 --> 00:30:20.140
  • WITH FIRE.
  • 00:30:20.140 --> 00:30:21.220
  • COME LET US BUILD THE WALL
  • 00:30:21.220 --> 00:30:23.180
  • OF JERUSALEM;
  • 00:30:23.180 --> 00:30:24.200
  • THAT WE MAY NO LONGER BE
  • 00:30:24.200 --> 00:30:26.170
  • A REPROACH.'
  • 00:30:26.170 --> 00:30:28.010
  • AND I TOLD THEM OF THE HAND
  • 00:30:28.010 --> 00:30:29.280
  • OF GOD,
  • 00:30:29.280 --> 00:30:30.140
  • WHICH HAD BEEN GOOD UPON ME,
  • 00:30:30.140 --> 00:30:32.090
  • AND ALSO OF THE KING'S WORDS
  • 00:30:32.090 --> 00:30:34.040
  • THAT HE HAD SPOKEN TO ME.
  • 00:30:34.040 --> 00:30:36.060
  • SO THEY SAID,
  • 00:30:36.060 --> 00:30:37.050
  • 'LET US RISE UP AND BUILD.'
  • 00:30:37.050 --> 00:30:40.040
  • AND THEN THEY SET THEIR HANDS
  • 00:30:40.040 --> 00:30:42.070
  • TO DO THIS GOOD WORK."
  • 00:30:42.200 --> 00:30:45.200
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:30:45.200 --> 00:30:46.260
  • LET YOUR WORD COME ALIVE IN US
  • 00:30:46.260 --> 00:30:48.220
  • TODAY;
  • 00:30:48.220 --> 00:30:50.030
  • THAT WE,
  • 00:30:50.030 --> 00:30:50.220
  • LIKE THE PEOPLE IN JERUSALEM
  • 00:30:50.220 --> 00:30:52.030
  • IN NEHEMIAH'S DAY,
  • 00:30:52.030 --> 00:30:54.080
  • WOULD SET OUR HANDS TO DO
  • 00:30:54.080 --> 00:30:55.260
  • THE GOOD WORK OF BUILDING
  • 00:30:55.260 --> 00:30:57.110
  • GODLY FAMILIES.
  • 00:30:57.110 --> 00:30:59.120
  • LET THE POWER
  • 00:30:59.120 --> 00:31:00.080
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:31:00.080 --> 00:31:01.080
  • CARRY THIS WORD PAST
  • 00:31:01.080 --> 00:31:02.240
  • THIS SERMON AND THIS SANCTUARY
  • 00:31:02.240 --> 00:31:04.190
  • INTO OUR HEARTS AND LIVES;
  • 00:31:04.190 --> 00:31:06.260
  • THAT WE COULD CHANGE THE FUTURE
  • 00:31:06.260 --> 00:31:08.060
  • OF THIS NATION FOR THE CAUSE
  • 00:31:08.060 --> 00:31:10.080
  • OF CHRIST' AND RIGHTEOUSNESS'
  • 00:31:10.080 --> 00:31:11.120
  • SAKE.
  • 00:31:11.120 --> 00:31:12.130
  • IT'S IN JESUS' NAME
  • 00:31:12.130 --> 00:31:13.010
  • THAT WE PRAY AND ASK.
  • 00:31:13.010 --> 00:31:13.270
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:31:13.270 --> 00:31:15.230
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:31:15.230 --> 00:31:16.220
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:31:16.220 --> 00:31:17.170
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:31:18.120 --> 00:31:21.120
  • I LIKE WHAT NEHEMIAH 2:18 SAYS.
  • 00:31:21.120 --> 00:31:24.100
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:31:24.100 --> 00:31:24.240
  • "THEY SET THEIR HANDS TO DO
  • 00:31:24.240 --> 00:31:27.150
  • GOOD WORK."
  • 00:31:27.150 --> 00:31:30.060
  • "GOOD WORK."
  • 00:31:30.060 --> 00:31:32.040
  • NOTICE THAT THERE'S
  • 00:31:32.040 --> 00:31:32.250
  • A DISTINCTION THAT NEHEMIAH
  • 00:31:32.250 --> 00:31:34.050
  • MAKES ABOUT THE WORK
  • 00:31:34.050 --> 00:31:35.060
  • THAT'S BEING DONE.
  • 00:31:35.060 --> 00:31:36.100
  • IT'S NOT JUST ANY WORK;
  • 00:31:36.100 --> 00:31:38.040
  • IT'S GOOD WORK.
  • 00:31:38.040 --> 00:31:39.260
  • ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:31:39.260 --> 00:31:40.140
  • THAT I BELIEVE IS IMPORTANT,
  • 00:31:40.140 --> 00:31:41.230
  • BEFORE WE CAN EVEN BEGIN TO
  • 00:31:41.230 --> 00:31:43.210
  • EXPECT MARRIAGES TO GET BETTER,
  • 00:31:43.210 --> 00:31:45.290
  • IS THAT WE HAVE GOT TO MAKE
  • 00:31:45.290 --> 00:31:47.070
  • A DECISION THAT WE ARE GOING
  • 00:31:47.070 --> 00:31:48.230
  • TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:31:49.060 --> 00:31:52.060
  • BECAUSE WHETHER YOU KNOW IT
  • 00:31:52.060 --> 00:31:52.280
  • OR NOT,
  • 00:31:52.280 --> 00:31:53.140
  • WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:31:53.140 --> 00:31:54.190
  • RIGHT NOW EACH AND EVERY ONE
  • 00:31:54.190 --> 00:31:56.030
  • OF US ARE WORKING ON
  • 00:31:56.030 --> 00:31:57.270
  • OUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:31:57.270 --> 00:31:59.010
  • YOU SAY, "WELL, I'M SINGLE."
  • 00:31:59.010 --> 00:32:00.110
  • DON'T WORRY;
  • 00:32:00.110 --> 00:32:00.270
  • YOU'RE STILL WORKING ON
  • 00:32:00.270 --> 00:32:01.280
  • YOUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:32:01.280 --> 00:32:04.160
  • YOU'RE EITHER DOING GOOD WORK,
  • 00:32:04.160 --> 00:32:06.010
  • GETTING READY TO BE
  • 00:32:06.010 --> 00:32:06.260
  • A GOOD SPOUSE;
  • 00:32:06.260 --> 00:32:07.220
  • OR YOU'RE DOING BAD WORK,
  • 00:32:07.220 --> 00:32:09.030
  • GETTING READY TO BE A PROBLEM
  • 00:32:09.030 --> 00:32:10.160
  • FOR SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:32:10.220 --> 00:32:13.220
  • SINGLE PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:32:13.220 --> 00:32:14.150
  • "I'M WAITING FOR MARRIAGE
  • 00:32:14.150 --> 00:32:15.140
  • TO COMPLETE ME."
  • 00:32:15.140 --> 00:32:16.270
  • BELIEVE ME,
  • 00:32:16.270 --> 00:32:17.250
  • JERRY MCGUIRE LIED.
  • 00:32:17.250 --> 00:32:20.220
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:32:20.220 --> 00:32:23.040
  • IF YOU ARE A BROKEN PERSON
  • 00:32:23.040 --> 00:32:24.280
  • BEFORE YOU GET MARRIED,
  • 00:32:24.280 --> 00:32:26.130
  • MARRIAGE IS NOT GOING TO FIX
  • 00:32:26.130 --> 00:32:27.270
  • YOUR BROKENNESS.
  • 00:32:27.270 --> 00:32:28.280
  • IT'S JUST GOING TO BREAK DOWN
  • 00:32:28.280 --> 00:32:30.040
  • WHAT'S ALREADY BROKE.
  • 00:32:30.040 --> 00:32:31.270
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:32:31.270 --> 00:32:33.080
  • SO WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THIS
  • 00:32:33.080 --> 00:32:34.080
  • MESSAGE TODAY ABOUT MARRIAGE,
  • 00:32:34.080 --> 00:32:36.130
  • DON'T TUNE ME OUT
  • 00:32:36.130 --> 00:32:37.290
  • BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE A RING
  • 00:32:37.290 --> 00:32:39.010
  • ON YOUR FINGER.
  • 00:32:39.010 --> 00:32:40.000
  • RECOGNIZE THAT THESE PRINCIPLES
  • 00:32:40.000 --> 00:32:41.270
  • ARE REQUIRED OF ALL OF US.
  • 00:32:41.270 --> 00:32:44.140
  • SOME OF YOU SAY,
  • 00:32:44.140 --> 00:32:44.260
  • "WELL I'VE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:32:44.260 --> 00:32:45.190
  • 40 YEARS."
  • 00:32:45.190 --> 00:32:46.190
  • HALLELUJAH.
  • 00:32:46.190 --> 00:32:47.140
  • YOU HAVE THE SECRET TO HELPING
  • 00:32:47.180 --> 00:32:50.180
  • OTHERS SUCCEED
  • 00:32:50.180 --> 00:32:52.050
  • IN THEIR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:32:52.050 --> 00:32:54.070
  • DON'T TUNE ME OUT
  • 00:32:54.070 --> 00:32:55.200
  • BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU'VE
  • 00:32:55.200 --> 00:32:56.100
  • ALREADY GOT THIS THING FIXED.
  • 00:32:56.100 --> 00:32:58.040
  • YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE
  • 00:32:58.040 --> 00:32:59.240
  • WHO NEED YOUR HELP
  • 00:32:59.240 --> 00:33:00.230
  • GETTING THINGS FIXED.
  • 00:33:00.230 --> 00:33:03.000
  • SO MAKE YOURSELF AVAILABLE
  • 00:33:03.000 --> 00:33:04.050
  • TO THEM.
  • 00:33:04.050 --> 00:33:05.230
  • BUT WE'RE GOING TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:33:05.230 --> 00:33:07.050
  • THROUGH NEHEMIAH'S LIFE,
  • 00:33:07.050 --> 00:33:08.120
  • THE PRINCIPLES THAT GOD WANTS
  • 00:33:08.120 --> 00:33:09.280
  • US TO APPLY TO OUR LIFE.
  • 00:33:09.280 --> 00:33:11.230
  • BUT THE FIRST PRINCIPLE IS
  • 00:33:11.230 --> 00:33:13.120
  • WE HAVE GOT TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:33:14.030 --> 00:33:17.030
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:33:17.030 --> 00:33:18.010
  • GOOD WORK.
  • 00:33:18.010 --> 00:33:20.070
  • BECAUSE IF WE DON'T DO
  • 00:33:20.070 --> 00:33:21.120
  • GOOD WORK,
  • 00:33:21.120 --> 00:33:22.010
  • WE'RE GOING TO TEAR DOWN
  • 00:33:22.010 --> 00:33:23.070
  • INSTEAD OF BUILD UP.
  • 00:33:23.070 --> 00:33:25.040
  • WE'RE GOING TO USE OUR WORDS,
  • 00:33:25.040 --> 00:33:26.200
  • NOT TO ENCOURAGE,
  • 00:33:26.200 --> 00:33:27.200
  • BUT TO CREATE BITTERNESS
  • 00:33:27.200 --> 00:33:29.050
  • AND STRIFE.
  • 00:33:29.050 --> 00:33:30.130
  • WE'RE GOING TO WEAKEN
  • 00:33:30.130 --> 00:33:31.170
  • RATHER THAN STRENGTHEN
  • 00:33:31.170 --> 00:33:33.010
  • THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT GOD
  • 00:33:33.010 --> 00:33:34.080
  • HAS GIVEN US.
  • 00:33:34.080 --> 00:33:35.270
  • WHEN WE COMMIT OURSELVES
  • 00:33:35.270 --> 00:33:37.000
  • TO DOING GOOD WORK,
  • 00:33:37.000 --> 00:33:38.130
  • WE GIVE OUR MARRIAGES
  • 00:33:38.130 --> 00:33:40.000
  • THE PRIORITY THAT THEY DESERVE.
  • 00:33:40.000 --> 00:33:42.250
  • THE NATIONAL HEALTH AND SCIENCE
  • 00:33:42.250 --> 00:33:43.270
  • CENTER DID A STUDY.
  • 00:33:43.270 --> 00:33:45.050
  • AND IT SAID THAT 80%
  • 00:33:45.050 --> 00:33:46.210
  • OF MARRIED COUPLES TODAY
  • 00:33:46.210 --> 00:33:48.050
  • WILL NOT CELEBRATE
  • 00:33:48.050 --> 00:33:49.190
  • THEIR 20TH ANNIVERSARY.
  • 00:33:49.190 --> 00:33:52.160
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:33:52.160 --> 00:33:54.180
  • WHEN WE GATHER AT A WEDDING,
  • 00:33:54.180 --> 00:33:56.010
  • DO WE TOAST THE BRIDE AND GROOM
  • 00:33:56.010 --> 00:33:58.060
  • BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:33:58.060 --> 00:33:59.030
  • FOR THE NEXT 19 YEARS,
  • 00:33:59.030 --> 00:34:00.210
  • THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE
  • 00:34:00.210 --> 00:34:01.140
  • EACH OTHER MISERABLE?
  • 00:34:01.140 --> 00:34:03.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:34:03.080 --> 00:34:04.120
  • NO.
  • 00:34:04.120 --> 00:34:06.070
  • WE TOAST THEIR POTENTIAL.
  • 00:34:06.070 --> 00:34:09.010
  • WE TOAST WHAT WE BELIEVE
  • 00:34:09.010 --> 00:34:10.170
  • WE SEE IN THEIR FUTURE.
  • 00:34:10.170 --> 00:34:12.050
  • WE TALK ABOUT THE GOOD THINGS
  • 00:34:12.050 --> 00:34:13.180
  • THAT ARE TO COME.
  • 00:34:13.180 --> 00:34:14.290
  • WE DON'T FLIP A COIN AND SAY,
  • 00:34:14.290 --> 00:34:16.090
  • "WHICH ONE WILL YOU BE?
  • 00:34:16.090 --> 00:34:17.130
  • DIVORCED OR TOGETHER?"
  • 00:34:17.130 --> 00:34:20.080
  • THE THING THAT REQUIRES
  • 00:34:20.080 --> 00:34:21.250
  • YOUR MARRIAGE TO CONTINUE IS
  • 00:34:21.250 --> 00:34:23.210
  • YOUR WILLINGNESS TO CONTINUE
  • 00:34:23.210 --> 00:34:25.120
  • TO DO GOOD WORKS.
  • 00:34:25.120 --> 00:34:26.140
  • WHEN PEOPLE STOP AND THEY SEE
  • 00:34:26.140 --> 00:34:27.260
  • ALL OF THE DAMAGE THAT'S BEEN
  • 00:34:27.260 --> 00:34:29.000
  • DONE IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:34:29.000 --> 00:34:30.160
  • RATHER THAN START TO REBUILD
  • 00:34:30.160 --> 00:34:32.060
  • THE BROKEN BARRIER
  • 00:34:32.060 --> 00:34:33.030
  • OF THEIR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:34:33.030 --> 00:34:34.020
  • THEY THINK IT'S JUST EASIER
  • 00:34:34.020 --> 00:34:35.050
  • TO START OVER WITH A BRAND NEW
  • 00:34:35.050 --> 00:34:36.160
  • CONSTRUCTION COMPANY.
  • 00:34:36.190 --> 00:34:39.190
  • BUT GUESS WHAT THEY FIND
  • 00:34:39.190 --> 00:34:40.130
  • WHEN THEY GET THERE?
  • 00:34:40.130 --> 00:34:41.230
  • MORE WORK.
  • 00:34:42.170 --> 00:34:45.170
  • WE'VE GOT TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:34:45.170 --> 00:34:47.220
  • AND NEHEMIAH GIVES US
  • 00:34:47.220 --> 00:34:48.250
  • PRINCIPLES FOR DOING GOOD WORK.
  • 00:34:48.250 --> 00:34:50.260
  • AND THE FIRST PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:34:50.260 --> 00:34:51.270
  • HE GIVES US GOES RIGHT BACK
  • 00:34:51.270 --> 00:34:53.110
  • TO TALKING TO SINGLE PEOPLE,
  • 00:34:53.110 --> 00:34:54.280
  • AND THAT IS THIS;
  • 00:34:54.280 --> 00:34:55.250
  • BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE WORK,
  • 00:34:55.250 --> 00:34:57.060
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A PERMIT.
  • 00:34:57.290 --> 00:35:01.010
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:35:01.010 --> 00:35:03.270
  • NEHEMIAH IS THE CUPBEARER
  • 00:35:03.270 --> 00:35:06.010
  • FOR KING ARTAXERXES.
  • 00:35:06.010 --> 00:35:08.070
  • NOW THESE MIGHT SOUND LIKE
  • 00:35:08.070 --> 00:35:09.060
  • INSIGNIFICANT NAMES.
  • 00:35:09.060 --> 00:35:10.080
  • BUT IN THEIR DAY,
  • 00:35:10.080 --> 00:35:11.140
  • THEY WERE VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:35:11.140 --> 00:35:12.150
  • WHY?
  • 00:35:12.150 --> 00:35:12.270
  • BECAUSE KING ARTAXERXES WAS
  • 00:35:12.270 --> 00:35:14.230
  • THE RULER OF THE KNOWN WORLD.
  • 00:35:14.230 --> 00:35:16.120
  • HE WAS THE KING IN BABYLON.
  • 00:35:16.120 --> 00:35:17.270
  • AND BABYLON HAD CONQUERED
  • 00:35:17.270 --> 00:35:19.050
  • PRETTY MUCH ALL
  • 00:35:19.050 --> 00:35:19.250
  • OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD.
  • 00:35:19.250 --> 00:35:20.250
  • NEHEMIAH STOOD IN FRONT OF HIM
  • 00:35:20.250 --> 00:35:22.270
  • ON A DAILY BASIS
  • 00:35:22.270 --> 00:35:24.020
  • AS HIS CUPBEARER.
  • 00:35:24.020 --> 00:35:26.020
  • WHEN YOU'RE A CUPBEARER,
  • 00:35:26.020 --> 00:35:27.070
  • YOU HAVE GOT A PRETTY PATHETIC
  • 00:35:27.070 --> 00:35:29.000
  • EXISTENCE.
  • 00:35:29.000 --> 00:35:30.200
  • AND THE REASON YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:35:30.200 --> 00:35:31.120
  • A PATHETIC EXISTENCE
  • 00:35:31.120 --> 00:35:32.180
  • IS BECAUSE YOUR JOB IS
  • 00:35:32.180 --> 00:35:33.270
  • TO BRING THE KING HIS WINE.
  • 00:35:33.270 --> 00:35:35.190
  • AND YOUR PURPOSE IS NOT TO BE
  • 00:35:35.190 --> 00:35:37.110
  • THE SOMMELIER THAT TELLS HIM
  • 00:35:37.110 --> 00:35:38.290
  • ALL OF THE WONDERFUL FLAVORS
  • 00:35:38.290 --> 00:35:40.020
  • HE'S ABOUT TO ENJOY.
  • 00:35:40.020 --> 00:35:42.150
  • YOUR JOB IS TO SIP THE WINE
  • 00:35:42.150 --> 00:35:44.180
  • BEFORE THE KING DOES
  • 00:35:44.180 --> 00:35:45.250
  • SO THAT IF ANYBODY'S TRYING
  • 00:35:45.250 --> 00:35:47.010
  • TO POISON THE KING,
  • 00:35:47.010 --> 00:35:48.110
  • YOU DIE.
  • 00:35:48.110 --> 00:35:50.010
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:35:50.010 --> 00:35:52.020
  • SO NEHEMIAH KNOWS THAT
  • 00:35:52.020 --> 00:35:53.180
  • WITH HIS NEXT SIP,
  • 00:35:53.180 --> 00:35:54.260
  • HE COULD TAKE HIS FINAL TRIP.
  • 00:35:55.080 --> 00:35:58.080
  • NOW I KNOW SOME OF YOU THINK
  • 00:35:58.080 --> 00:35:59.060
  • YOU'VE GOT STRESSFUL
  • 00:35:59.060 --> 00:36:00.100
  • WORK ENVIRONMENTS,
  • 00:36:00.100 --> 00:36:01.070
  • BUT THINK ABOUT HIS JOB.
  • 00:36:01.070 --> 00:36:03.150
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:36:03.150 --> 00:36:05.010
  • IF NEHEMIAH DIES,
  • 00:36:05.010 --> 00:36:06.090
  • THEY JUST DRAG HIM OUT AND THEY
  • 00:36:06.090 --> 00:36:07.270
  • BRING IN A BRAND NEW CUPBEARER.
  • 00:36:08.090 --> 00:36:11.090
  • NOT ONLY IS HIS JOB STRESSFUL,
  • 00:36:11.090 --> 00:36:12.250
  • BUT THE MEN HE'S WORKING FOR
  • 00:36:12.250 --> 00:36:14.060
  • IS TEMPERAMENTAL.
  • 00:36:14.060 --> 00:36:15.030
  • KING ARTAXERXES IS NOT KNOWN
  • 00:36:15.030 --> 00:36:17.020
  • FOR BEING A MILD-MANNERED
  • 00:36:17.020 --> 00:36:18.070
  • KIND OF GUY.
  • 00:36:18.070 --> 00:36:19.170
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT,
  • 00:36:19.170 --> 00:36:20.090
  • ONE OF THE EDICTS THAT
  • 00:36:20.090 --> 00:36:21.130
  • ARTAXERXES WROTE IS RECORDED
  • 00:36:21.130 --> 00:36:23.110
  • IN THE BOOK OF EZRA.
  • 00:36:23.110 --> 00:36:24.190
  • AND IN THE BOOK OF EZRA,
  • 00:36:24.190 --> 00:36:25.220
  • HE WRITES IN 7:26,
  • 00:36:25.220 --> 00:36:28.170
  • "WHOEVER DOES NOT OBSERVE
  • 00:36:28.170 --> 00:36:29.230
  • THE LAW OF THE KING,
  • 00:36:29.230 --> 00:36:30.250
  • LET JUDGMENT BE BROUGHT UPON
  • 00:36:30.250 --> 00:36:32.090
  • HIM SPEEDILY,
  • 00:36:32.090 --> 00:36:33.140
  • WHETHER IT BE DEATH,
  • 00:36:33.140 --> 00:36:34.200
  • BANISHMENT,
  • 00:36:34.200 --> 00:36:35.080
  • CONFISCATION OF GOODS,
  • 00:36:35.080 --> 00:36:36.120
  • OR IMPRISONMENT."
  • 00:36:36.120 --> 00:36:37.080
  • HOW MANY OF YOU SEE A LITTLE
  • 00:36:37.080 --> 00:36:38.090
  • BIT OF TYPE A IN ARTAXERXES?
  • 00:36:38.090 --> 00:36:40.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:36:40.230 --> 00:36:43.010
  • HERE'S NEHEMIAH'S PROBLEM;
  • 00:36:43.010 --> 00:36:45.050
  • IN CHAPTER 1,
  • 00:36:45.050 --> 00:36:46.030
  • HIS BROTHER COMES
  • 00:36:46.030 --> 00:36:47.060
  • FROM JERUSALEM,
  • 00:36:47.060 --> 00:36:47.290
  • HIS HOMETOWN,
  • 00:36:47.290 --> 00:36:48.240
  • AND HE TELLS HIM,
  • 00:36:48.240 --> 00:36:49.210
  • "THE WALLS ARE BROKEN DOWN.
  • 00:36:49.210 --> 00:36:51.060
  • THE GATES ARE BURNED."
  • 00:36:51.060 --> 00:36:53.020
  • IT BREAKS NEHEMIAH'S HEART.
  • 00:36:53.020 --> 00:36:54.280
  • HE GOES BEFORE THE LORD
  • 00:36:54.280 --> 00:36:55.280
  • WITH FASTING AND PRAYER.
  • 00:36:55.280 --> 00:36:56.280
  • HE ASKS THE LORD TO DO
  • 00:36:56.280 --> 00:36:58.280
  • SOMETHING ON HIS BEHALF.
  • 00:36:58.280 --> 00:37:00.160
  • AND IF HIS OUTSIDE SITUATION
  • 00:37:00.160 --> 00:37:02.080
  • WASN'T BAD ENOUGH,
  • 00:37:02.080 --> 00:37:03.080
  • NEHEMIAH HAS GOT TO GO TO WORK.
  • 00:37:03.170 --> 00:37:06.170
  • SO HE GETS UP
  • 00:37:06.170 --> 00:37:07.050
  • AND HE GOES BEFORE THE KING.
  • 00:37:07.050 --> 00:37:08.180
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:37:08.180 --> 00:37:09.030
  • "I TOOK THE KING HIS WINE
  • 00:37:09.030 --> 00:37:10.260
  • AND I HAD NEVER BEEN SAD
  • 00:37:10.260 --> 00:37:12.230
  • IN HIS PRESENCE BEFORE."
  • 00:37:12.230 --> 00:37:14.050
  • NOW THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
  • 00:37:14.050 --> 00:37:15.080
  • WHY?
  • 00:37:15.080 --> 00:37:15.270
  • BECAUSE IF NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:37:15.270 --> 00:37:17.040
  • THE CUPBEARER, LOOKS SAD,
  • 00:37:17.040 --> 00:37:18.240
  • ARTAXERXES WONDERS
  • 00:37:18.240 --> 00:37:20.050
  • WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE DRINK.
  • 00:37:20.260 --> 00:37:23.260
  • AND IF ARTAXERXES
  • 00:37:23.260 --> 00:37:24.270
  • SUSPECTS THAT NEHEMIAH
  • 00:37:24.270 --> 00:37:27.090
  • IS A PART OF THE CONSPIRACY,
  • 00:37:27.090 --> 00:37:29.000
  • HE'D JUST HAVE HIM KILLED.
  • 00:37:29.000 --> 00:37:31.090
  • SO GOING TO WORK WITH A BAD
  • 00:37:31.090 --> 00:37:32.130
  • ATTITUDE FOR ARTAXERXES
  • 00:37:32.130 --> 00:37:34.060
  • DOESN'T GET YOU TIME OFF;
  • 00:37:34.060 --> 00:37:35.260
  • IT GETS YOUR HEAD OFF.
  • 00:37:35.260 --> 00:37:37.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:37:37.280 --> 00:37:38.160
  • AND XERXES LOOKS AT NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:37:38.160 --> 00:37:40.110
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:37:40.110 --> 00:37:40.260
  • "YOU HAVE NEVER HAD
  • 00:37:40.260 --> 00:37:41.230
  • A SAD COUNTENANCE BEFORE.
  • 00:37:41.230 --> 00:37:43.200
  • ARE YOU SICK
  • 00:37:43.200 --> 00:37:45.200
  • OR IS THIS SORROW OF HEART?"
  • 00:37:45.200 --> 00:37:48.050
  • AND NEHEMIAH SAYS,
  • 00:37:48.050 --> 00:37:48.250
  • "I BECAME DREADFULLY AFRAID."
  • 00:37:49.160 --> 00:37:52.160
  • AND NEHEMIAH GIVES HIM
  • 00:37:52.160 --> 00:37:53.130
  • THE ANSWER.
  • 00:37:53.130 --> 00:37:53.270
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:37:53.270 --> 00:37:54.140
  • "THE GATES OF MY CITY
  • 00:37:54.140 --> 00:37:55.080
  • ARE BURNED.
  • 00:37:55.080 --> 00:37:55.270
  • THE WALLS HAVE BEEN TORN DOWN."
  • 00:37:55.290 --> 00:37:58.290
  • AND XERXES RESPONDS.
  • 00:37:59.190 --> 00:38:02.210
  • HE SAYS, "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST?"
  • 00:38:03.100 --> 00:38:06.100
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:38:06.100 --> 00:38:07.120
  • "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST?"
  • 00:38:07.120 --> 00:38:09.170
  • NOW THAT'S A SERMON
  • 00:38:09.170 --> 00:38:10.110
  • FOR ANOTHER DAY.
  • 00:38:10.110 --> 00:38:11.050
  • WHEN THE KING ASKS YOU,
  • 00:38:11.050 --> 00:38:12.270
  • "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST,"
  • 00:38:12.270 --> 00:38:14.120
  • DON'T WASTE IT.
  • 00:38:15.080 --> 00:38:18.080
  • BUT NEHEMIAH LOOKS AT HIM
  • 00:38:18.080 --> 00:38:19.120
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:38:19.120 --> 00:38:20.030
  • "I NEED TWO LETTERS.
  • 00:38:20.030 --> 00:38:22.200
  • I NEED A LETTER THAT I CAN TAKE
  • 00:38:22.200 --> 00:38:24.070
  • WITH ME TO THE GOVERNORS
  • 00:38:24.070 --> 00:38:25.190
  • IN JUDEA SO THAT
  • 00:38:25.190 --> 00:38:26.240
  • WHEN I REBUILD THESE WALLS,
  • 00:38:26.240 --> 00:38:28.040
  • THEY KNOW I'M DOING SO
  • 00:38:28.040 --> 00:38:29.100
  • WITH YOUR BLESSING.
  • 00:38:29.100 --> 00:38:30.070
  • AND I NEED A LETTER
  • 00:38:30.070 --> 00:38:31.000
  • THAT I CAN TAKE TO ASAPH,
  • 00:38:31.000 --> 00:38:32.150
  • THE KEEPER OF THE FOREST,
  • 00:38:32.150 --> 00:38:33.220
  • SO THAT I CAN GET THE TIMBER
  • 00:38:33.220 --> 00:38:35.020
  • THAT'S NECESSARY TO REBUILD
  • 00:38:35.020 --> 00:38:36.100
  • THE GATES."
  • 00:38:36.100 --> 00:38:37.000
  • YOU SEE NEHEMIAH KNEW
  • 00:38:37.000 --> 00:38:38.220
  • WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE BEFORE
  • 00:38:38.220 --> 00:38:40.020
  • CONSTRUCTION COULD BEGIN.
  • 00:38:40.020 --> 00:38:41.150
  • HE HAD TO GET A PERMIT.
  • 00:38:42.050 --> 00:38:45.050
  • SO HERE'S WHAT I'M SAYING
  • 00:38:45.050 --> 00:38:46.030
  • TO SINGLE PEOPLE;
  • 00:38:46.030 --> 00:38:47.090
  • BEFORE YOU MOVE IN AND START
  • 00:38:47.090 --> 00:38:49.070
  • PLAYING HOUSE WITH SOMEBODY,
  • 00:38:49.070 --> 00:38:51.000
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET A PERMIT.
  • 00:38:51.080 --> 00:38:54.080
  • YOU HAVE GOT TO GET PERMISSION
  • 00:38:54.080 --> 00:38:56.090
  • FROM GOD ALMIGHTY
  • 00:38:56.090 --> 00:38:57.140
  • TO BE MARRIED.
  • 00:38:57.140 --> 00:38:58.230
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:38:58.230 --> 00:39:01.110
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:39:01.110 --> 00:39:02.110
  • "UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:39:02.110 --> 00:39:03.270
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:39:03.270 --> 00:39:04.260
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN
  • 00:39:04.260 --> 00:39:06.080
  • WHO BUILD IT."
  • 00:39:06.080 --> 00:39:06.250
  • WHEN IT COMES TO MARRIAGE,
  • 00:39:06.250 --> 00:39:08.040
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A PERMIT
  • 00:39:08.040 --> 00:39:09.230
  • BEFORE YOU START BUILDING.
  • 00:39:09.230 --> 00:39:11.100
  • ONE OF THE PROBLEMS
  • 00:39:11.100 --> 00:39:12.070
  • THAT WE HAVE IN AMERICA TODAY
  • 00:39:12.070 --> 00:39:13.260
  • IS THAT 49% OF COUPLES
  • 00:39:13.260 --> 00:39:15.280
  • IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:39:15.280 --> 00:39:17.040
  • ARE LIVING TOGETHER
  • 00:39:17.040 --> 00:39:18.050
  • OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:39:18.050 --> 00:39:21.020
  • WHEN THOSE COUPLES GET MARRIED,
  • 00:39:21.020 --> 00:39:22.180
  • ONLY 60% OF THEM STAY TOGETHER
  • 00:39:22.180 --> 00:39:24.240
  • FOR THREE YEARS.
  • 00:39:24.240 --> 00:39:25.240
  • WHY?
  • 00:39:25.240 --> 00:39:27.100
  • BECAUSE WHEN THEY'RE LIVING
  • 00:39:27.100 --> 00:39:28.040
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:39:28.040 --> 00:39:28.260
  • IT'S SELFISH LOVE;
  • 00:39:28.260 --> 00:39:30.060
  • AND WHEN THEY'RE MARRIED
  • 00:39:30.060 --> 00:39:31.010
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:39:31.010 --> 00:39:31.170
  • IT'S SACRIFICIAL LOVE.
  • 00:39:31.170 --> 00:39:34.010
  • AND YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH
  • 00:39:34.010 --> 00:39:35.160
  • OF THOSE IN THE SAME SENTENCE.
  • 00:39:35.160 --> 00:39:38.030
  • BIBLICAL MARRIAGE IS BUILT
  • 00:39:38.030 --> 00:39:39.080
  • UPON SACRIFICE,
  • 00:39:39.080 --> 00:39:40.220
  • LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:39:40.220 --> 00:39:42.060
  • SELFISH RELATIONSHIPS ARE BUILT
  • 00:39:42.060 --> 00:39:44.170
  • ON WHAT YOU DO PLEASES ME.
  • 00:39:44.170 --> 00:39:47.110
  • HERE'S WHAT THE BIBLE HAS
  • 00:39:47.110 --> 00:39:48.080
  • TO SAY ABOUT IT.
  • 00:39:48.080 --> 00:39:48.270
  • EXODUS 20:14: "THOU SHALT NOT
  • 00:39:48.270 --> 00:39:51.180
  • COMMIT ADULTERY."
  • 00:39:51.180 --> 00:39:53.120
  • THAT'S STILL IN THE BOOK,
  • 00:39:53.120 --> 00:39:54.240
  • FOLKS.
  • 00:39:54.240 --> 00:39:56.150
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE."
  • 00:39:56.150 --> 00:39:57.270
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:39:57.270 --> 00:39:58.270
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE."
  • 00:39:58.270 --> 00:40:00.180
  • WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?
  • 00:40:00.180 --> 00:40:01.180
  • BECAUSE A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE,
  • 00:40:01.180 --> 00:40:02.180
  • WHO ARE LIVING TOGETHER,
  • 00:40:02.180 --> 00:40:03.120
  • SAY, "WHAT'S THE POINT
  • 00:40:03.120 --> 00:40:04.120
  • OF GETTING MARRIED?"
  • 00:40:04.120 --> 00:40:05.130
  • GOD SAID,
  • 00:40:05.130 --> 00:40:06.100
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE.
  • 00:40:06.210 --> 00:40:09.210
  • AMONG ALL,
  • 00:40:09.210 --> 00:40:10.150
  • THE BED OF MARRIAGE
  • 00:40:10.150 --> 00:40:11.110
  • IS UNDEFILED."
  • 00:40:11.110 --> 00:40:12.170
  • BUT HERE'S HOW THE REST
  • 00:40:12.170 --> 00:40:13.080
  • OF THE VERSE READS.
  • 00:40:13.080 --> 00:40:14.050
  • "FORNICATORS AND ADULTERERS,
  • 00:40:14.050 --> 00:40:15.260
  • GOD WILL JUDGE."
  • 00:40:16.030 --> 00:40:19.030
  • THOSE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:40:19.030 --> 00:40:20.000
  • ENGAGED IN SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:40:20.000 --> 00:40:21.240
  • OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:40:21.240 --> 00:40:22.240
  • THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT
  • 00:40:22.240 --> 00:40:24.140
  • THE ONLY RELATIONSHIP THAT GOD
  • 00:40:24.140 --> 00:40:26.030
  • ENDORSES FOR TWO PEOPLE
  • 00:40:26.030 --> 00:40:27.130
  • TO SHARE A BEDROOM IN IS
  • 00:40:27.130 --> 00:40:29.020
  • THE RELATIONSHIP OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:40:29.020 --> 00:40:30.230
  • THAT'S HIS POLICY.
  • 00:40:30.230 --> 00:40:32.060
  • AND BEFORE YOU BEGIN
  • 00:40:32.060 --> 00:40:33.090
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:40:33.090 --> 00:40:34.100
  • YOU NEED HIS PERMISSION.
  • 00:40:34.100 --> 00:40:36.220
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:40:36.220 --> 00:40:37.130

  • HIS PROMISES WILL NOT RETURN
  • 00:40:48.120 --> 00:40:49.220

  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: SO NEHEMIAH

  • WANTS TWO PERMITS.
  • 00:41:43.030 --> 00:41:44.210
  • AND YOU NEED TWO PERMITS.
  • 00:41:44.210 --> 00:41:47.150
  • ONE,
  • 00:41:47.150 --> 00:41:48.020
  • YOU NEED A PERMIT
  • 00:41:48.020 --> 00:41:48.230
  • FROM THE KING.
  • 00:41:48.230 --> 00:41:49.240
  • YOU NEED PERMISSION FROM GOD.
  • 00:41:49.240 --> 00:41:52.020
  • TWO,
  • 00:41:52.020 --> 00:41:52.230
  • YOU NEED PERMISSION FROM
  • 00:41:52.230 --> 00:41:53.270
  • THE GIRL'S SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY.
  • 00:41:53.270 --> 00:41:56.270
  • DON'T SHOW UP AT HIS HOUSE
  • 00:41:56.270 --> 00:41:59.100
  • AND INTRODUCE YOURSELF FOR
  • 00:41:59.100 --> 00:42:00.240
  • THE FIRST TIME AS HER FIANCE.
  • 00:42:01.100 --> 00:42:04.100
  • YOU ASK THAT MAN FOR HER HAND.
  • 00:42:05.120 --> 00:42:08.120
  • WHY?
  • 00:42:08.120 --> 00:42:09.030
  • BECAUSE HE IS THE REASON
  • 00:42:09.030 --> 00:42:10.120
  • SHE'S HERE.
  • 00:42:10.120 --> 00:42:12.110
  • YOU DON'T GET HER WITHOUT HIM.
  • 00:42:12.260 --> 00:42:15.260
  • AND I'M SAYING THIS,
  • 00:42:15.260 --> 00:42:16.250
  • NOT ONLY AS A YOUNG MAN
  • 00:42:16.250 --> 00:42:18.020
  • WHO ASKED FOR MY WIFE'S HAND,
  • 00:42:18.020 --> 00:42:20.000
  • BUT I'M SAYING THIS, AS A MAN,
  • 00:42:20.000 --> 00:42:21.220
  • WHO HAS TWO DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:42:21.220 --> 00:42:22.220
  • THAT WILL REMOVE YOUR HAND FROM
  • 00:42:22.220 --> 00:42:24.070
  • YOUR BODY IF YOU DON'T DO THAT.
  • 00:42:24.070 --> 00:42:27.020
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:42:32.090 --> 00:42:35.090
  • THE SAME WAY THAT NEHEMIAH GETS
  • 00:42:35.090 --> 00:42:36.260
  • TWO PERMITS THAT ALLOWS HIM
  • 00:42:36.290 --> 00:42:39.290
  • TO MAKE PROGRESS;
  • 00:42:39.290 --> 00:42:41.010
  • YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE SURE THAT
  • 00:42:41.010 --> 00:42:42.240
  • YOU'VE GOT GOD'S PERMISSION.
  • 00:42:42.240 --> 00:42:44.280
  • "UNLESS THE LORD BUILD

  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN
  • 00:42:46.200 --> 00:42:47.140
  • WHO BUILD IT."
  • 00:42:47.140 --> 00:42:48.260
  • PEOPLE WHO'VE BEEN LIVING
  • 00:42:48.260 --> 00:42:49.180
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:42:49.180 --> 00:42:50.000
  • SAY, "WELL WE'VE BEEN DOING
  • 00:42:50.000 --> 00:42:50.260
  • THIS FOR A LONG TIME."
  • 00:42:50.260 --> 00:42:51.180
  • LET ME GIVE YOU SOME FREE
  • 00:42:51.180 --> 00:42:52.170
  • AND SIMPLE ADVICE;
  • 00:42:52.170 --> 00:42:53.220
  • STOP IT.
  • 00:42:53.220 --> 00:42:56.210
  • STOP IT.
  • 00:42:56.210 --> 00:42:57.160
  • YOUR BEHAVIOR DOES NOT CAUSE
  • 00:42:57.160 --> 00:42:59.010
  • GOD TO AMEND OR ALTER
  • 00:42:59.010 --> 00:43:01.030
  • HIS POLICIES.
  • 00:43:01.030 --> 00:43:02.080
  • YOU CORRECT YOURSELF
  • 00:43:02.080 --> 00:43:03.270
  • ACCORDING TO HIS WORD.
  • 00:43:03.270 --> 00:43:05.030
  • HIS WORD DOES NOT CORRECT
  • 00:43:05.030 --> 00:43:06.160
  • ITSELF TO MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE.
  • 00:43:06.160 --> 00:43:09.050
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:43:09.050 --> 00:43:10.020
  • PRINCIPLE TWO,
  • 00:43:10.020 --> 00:43:12.120
  • JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:43:12.120 --> 00:43:13.150
  • PERMISSION DOESN'T MEAN YOU GET
  • 00:43:13.150 --> 00:43:15.020
  • A DAY OFF.
  • 00:43:15.020 --> 00:43:17.110
  • NEHEMIAH GOT PERMISSION
  • 00:43:17.110 --> 00:43:18.270
  • TO GO CUT THE TIMBER.
  • 00:43:18.270 --> 00:43:20.030
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:43:20.030 --> 00:43:20.280
  • THAT MEANS HE HAD TO GO
  • 00:43:20.280 --> 00:43:21.260
  • TO WORK.
  • 00:43:21.260 --> 00:43:23.020
  • NEHEMIAH GOT PERMISSION
  • 00:43:23.020 --> 00:43:24.050
  • TO REBUILD THE WALLS.
  • 00:43:24.050 --> 00:43:25.090
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:43:25.090 --> 00:43:25.280
  • THAT MEANS HE HAD TO GO
  • 00:43:25.280 --> 00:43:27.020
  • TO WORK.
  • 00:43:27.020 --> 00:43:28.040
  • HE DIDN'T GET THE PERMITS
  • 00:43:28.040 --> 00:43:29.140
  • AND OUTSOURCE THE WORK.
  • 00:43:29.140 --> 00:43:30.250
  • HE GOT THE PERMITS AND HE WENT
  • 00:43:30.250 --> 00:43:32.110
  • TO GO DO THE WORK.
  • 00:43:32.110 --> 00:43:33.260
  • THE SECOND PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:43:33.260 --> 00:43:35.010
  • NEHEMIAH TEACHES MARRIED PEOPLE
  • 00:43:35.010 --> 00:43:37.070
  • IS THAT ONCE YOU GET MARRIED,
  • 00:43:37.070 --> 00:43:39.020
  • GO TO WORK.
  • 00:43:39.020 --> 00:43:40.280
  • WHEN YOU SAY THAT I'M DATING
  • 00:43:40.280 --> 00:43:42.230
  • AND THIS IS A PREVIEW OF THINGS
  • 00:43:42.230 --> 00:43:44.130
  • TO COME,
  • 00:43:44.130 --> 00:43:45.100
  • MAKE SURE THAT WHAT COMES NEXT
  • 00:43:45.100 --> 00:43:46.270
  • IS BETTER THAN WHAT WAS.
  • 00:43:47.000 --> 00:43:50.000
  • PEOPLE WORK LIKE CRAZY
  • 00:43:50.000 --> 00:43:51.210
  • AT BEING ROMANTIC.
  • 00:43:51.210 --> 00:43:52.260
  • AND THEN WHEN THEY GET MARRIED,
  • 00:43:52.260 --> 00:43:53.270
  • IT TURNS INTO,
  • 00:43:53.270 --> 00:43:54.230
  • "HE USED TO..."
  • 00:43:54.230 --> 00:43:56.200
  • "HE USED TO BRING ME FLOWERS."
  • 00:43:56.200 --> 00:43:58.010
  • "HE USED TO WRITE ME LETTERS."
  • 00:43:58.010 --> 00:43:59.150
  • "HE USED TO TELL ME
  • 00:43:59.150 --> 00:44:00.140
  • HE LOVED ME."
  • 00:44:00.140 --> 00:44:01.110
  • "HE USED TO PICK UP THE PHONE
  • 00:44:01.110 --> 00:44:02.200
  • AND CALL ME
  • 00:44:02.200 --> 00:44:03.170
  • JUST TO HEAR ME BREATHE."
  • 00:44:03.170 --> 00:44:05.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:44:06.170 --> 00:44:09.170
  • (BREATHING DEEPLY)
  • 00:44:11.100 --> 00:44:14.100
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:44:14.100 --> 00:44:16.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:44:17.010 --> 00:44:20.010
  • NOW WHEN THE PHONE RINGS,
  • 00:44:20.010 --> 00:44:21.030
  • HE PICKS IT UP AND SAYS,
  • 00:44:21.030 --> 00:44:21.230
  • "WHAT DO YOU WANT?"
  • 00:44:21.230 --> 00:44:23.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:44:23.130 --> 00:44:25.110
  • THE THIRD PRINCIPLE
  • 00:44:25.110 --> 00:44:26.210
  • THAT NEHEMIAH TEACHES US
  • 00:44:26.210 --> 00:44:28.010
  • IS THAT WHENEVER YOU RECOGNIZE
  • 00:44:28.010 --> 00:44:29.260
  • THAT THERE'S DAMAGE,
  • 00:44:29.260 --> 00:44:31.000
  • EVALUATE YOUR PROBLEM
  • 00:44:31.000 --> 00:44:32.160
  • PRIVATELY.
  • 00:44:32.160 --> 00:44:34.170
  • YOU SEE THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:44:34.170 --> 00:44:35.150
  • THAT NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:44:35.150 --> 00:44:36.070
  • IN CHAPTER 2:11,
  • 00:44:36.070 --> 00:44:38.140
  • HE WENT TO JERUSALEM
  • 00:44:38.140 --> 00:44:39.180
  • WITH THE PERMITS.
  • 00:44:39.180 --> 00:44:42.040
  • AND BEFORE HE TOLD ANYBODY
  • 00:44:42.040 --> 00:44:44.060
  • WHY HE WAS IN TOWN,
  • 00:44:44.060 --> 00:44:45.180
  • BEFORE HE SHOWED ANYBODY
  • 00:44:45.180 --> 00:44:47.020
  • THE PERMITS,
  • 00:44:47.020 --> 00:44:47.270
  • BEFORE HE MADE IT KNOWN
  • 00:44:47.270 --> 00:44:49.010
  • THAT HIS PURPOSE WAS TO REBUILD
  • 00:44:49.010 --> 00:44:50.130
  • THE WALLS,
  • 00:44:50.130 --> 00:44:51.060
  • FOR THREE DAYS,
  • 00:44:51.060 --> 00:44:52.140
  • HE RODE AROUND AND HE SURVEYED
  • 00:44:52.140 --> 00:44:54.140
  • THE DAMAGE,
  • 00:44:54.140 --> 00:44:55.020
  • BUT HE DIDN'T SPEAK TO A SOUL.
  • 00:44:55.020 --> 00:44:58.010
  • THERE'S A LESSON THERE.
  • 00:44:58.010 --> 00:45:00.080
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:45:00.080 --> 00:45:01.240
  • THERE WILL BE SEASONS WHERE
  • 00:45:01.240 --> 00:45:03.140
  • THINGS WILL GET DIFFICULT,
  • 00:45:03.140 --> 00:45:04.180
  • AND DAMAGE AND HARM WILL COME
  • 00:45:04.180 --> 00:45:06.080
  • TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:45:06.080 --> 00:45:07.100
  • IT'S JUST PART OF LIFE.
  • 00:45:07.100 --> 00:45:08.080
  • IT'S PART OF HUMANITY.
  • 00:45:08.080 --> 00:45:09.170
  • TWO IMPERFECT PEOPLE
  • 00:45:09.170 --> 00:45:10.250
  • BEING MARRIED TO EACH OTHER,
  • 00:45:10.250 --> 00:45:12.030
  • SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:45:12.030 --> 00:45:12.280
  • THEY'RE GOING TO HURT
  • 00:45:12.280 --> 00:45:13.130
  • ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:45:13.130 --> 00:45:15.070
  • WHEN THAT HAPPENS,
  • 00:45:15.070 --> 00:45:17.010
  • SURVEY YOUR DAMAGE PRIVATELY.
  • 00:45:17.110 --> 00:45:20.110
  • DON'T TELL EVERY THIRD PERSON,
  • 00:45:20.110 --> 00:45:22.100
  • "WE'VE GOT A PROBLEM."
  • 00:45:22.100 --> 00:45:24.060
  • DON'T UPDATE YOUR FACEBOOK
  • 00:45:24.060 --> 00:45:25.210
  • STATUS WITH
  • 00:45:25.210 --> 00:45:26.110
  • "HAVE A MARRIAGE QUESTION."
  • 00:45:26.110 --> 00:45:28.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:45:28.080 --> 00:45:31.010
  • DON'T WALK INTO CHURCH
  • 00:45:31.010 --> 00:45:32.030
  • AND LOOK AT EVERY OTHER PERSON,
  • 00:45:32.030 --> 00:45:33.040
  • AND GO,
  • 00:45:33.040 --> 00:45:33.280
  • "UNSPOKEN; JUST PRAY."
  • 00:45:33.280 --> 00:45:36.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:45:36.280 --> 00:45:38.130
  • NO!
  • 00:45:38.130 --> 00:45:40.080
  • SURVEY THAT PROBLEM ALL BY
  • 00:45:40.080 --> 00:45:42.080
  • YOURSELF AND CONSIDER WHAT ROLE
  • 00:45:42.150 --> 00:45:45.150
  • AND RESPONSIBILITY YOU HAVE
  • 00:45:45.150 --> 00:45:47.130
  • IN SOLVING IT.
  • 00:45:47.130 --> 00:45:49.140
  • DON'T ASK EVERYBODY ELSE
  • 00:45:49.140 --> 00:45:51.010
  • TO HELP YOU SOLVE THAT PROBLEM.
  • 00:45:51.010 --> 00:45:52.190
  • AND THEN WHENEVER YOU GO ABOUT
  • 00:45:52.190 --> 00:45:54.080
  • SOLVING THE PROBLEM,
  • 00:45:54.080 --> 00:45:55.080
  • SOLVE IT ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:45:55.080 --> 00:45:57.160
  • CONSIDER THE STRATEGY AND
  • 00:45:57.160 --> 00:45:59.030
  • THE WISDOM OF NEHEMIAH'S PLAN.
  • 00:45:59.030 --> 00:46:00.260
  • HE DIDN'T COME TO TOWN AND TELL
  • 00:46:00.260 --> 00:46:02.210
  • ANYBODY WHY HE WAS IN TOWN.
  • 00:46:02.210 --> 00:46:04.090
  • WHY?
  • 00:46:04.090 --> 00:46:04.280
  • BECAUSE AS SOON AS HE WOULD
  • 00:46:04.280 --> 00:46:06.020
  • HAVE,
  • 00:46:06.020 --> 00:46:06.160
  • EVERYBODY WOULD HAVE HAD THEIR
  • 00:46:06.160 --> 00:46:07.220
  • OPINION ABOUT HOW TO BEST
  • 00:46:07.220 --> 00:46:09.110
  • PROCEED.
  • 00:46:09.110 --> 00:46:10.150
  • THE JEWS WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:46:10.150 --> 00:46:11.130
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD
  • 00:46:11.130 --> 00:46:12.080
  • THIS NEIGHBORHOOD FIRST."
  • 00:46:12.080 --> 00:46:13.140
  • THE PRIESTS WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:46:13.140 --> 00:46:14.170
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD THE TEMPLE
  • 00:46:14.170 --> 00:46:15.240
  • FIRST."
  • 00:46:15.240 --> 00:46:16.140
  • THE NOBLES WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:46:16.140 --> 00:46:17.180
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD THIS AREA
  • 00:46:17.180 --> 00:46:19.120
  • OF TOWN FIRST."
  • 00:46:19.120 --> 00:46:20.130
  • BUT RATHER THAN LET
  • 00:46:20.130 --> 00:46:21.070
  • EVERYBODY'S OPINION
  • 00:46:21.070 --> 00:46:22.040
  • GET INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS,
  • 00:46:22.040 --> 00:46:23.220
  • HE SURVEYED THE DAMAGE,
  • 00:46:23.220 --> 00:46:25.050
  • HE MADE A PLAN,
  • 00:46:25.050 --> 00:46:26.100
  • AND THEN HE WENT TO WORK
  • 00:46:26.100 --> 00:46:27.100
  • ON HOW TO GET THAT PLAN FIXED.
  • 00:46:27.100 --> 00:46:29.190
  • TAKE A JOURNEY OF
  • 00:46:29.190 --> 00:46:30.140
  • SELF-EXAMINATION AND UNDERSTAND
  • 00:46:30.140 --> 00:46:32.180
  • WHAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED.
  • 00:46:32.180 --> 00:46:34.020
  • ASK THE LORD TO LEAD
  • 00:46:34.020 --> 00:46:35.110
  • AND GUIDE YOU.
  • 00:46:35.110 --> 00:46:36.130
  • AND I ASSURE YOU,
  • 00:46:36.130 --> 00:46:37.110
  • HIS HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS WORD
  • 00:46:37.110 --> 00:46:39.050
  • WILL HELP YOU FIX A LOT MORE
  • 00:46:39.050 --> 00:46:40.150
  • PROBLEMS THAN THE UNQUALIFIED
  • 00:46:40.150 --> 00:46:42.190
  • EXPERTS AROUND YOU.
  • 00:46:42.200 --> 00:46:45.200
  • WHEN YOU, IN YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:46:45.200 --> 00:46:46.230
  • WALK AWAY
  • 00:46:46.230 --> 00:46:47.220
  • FROM GOD'S PRINCIPLES,
  • 00:46:47.220 --> 00:46:49.080
  • SUDDENLY OUTSIDE ATTACKS
  • 00:46:49.080 --> 00:46:51.050
  • NOW HAVE VALUE.
  • 00:46:51.050 --> 00:46:53.130
  • WHEN YOU SURVEY YOUR DAMAGE,
  • 00:46:53.130 --> 00:46:54.260
  • MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE WALKING
  • 00:46:54.260 --> 00:46:57.030
  • IN THE RIGHT PATH
  • 00:46:57.030 --> 00:46:58.230
  • OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:46:58.230 --> 00:47:00.120
  • THE FOURTH PRINCIPLE
  • 00:47:00.120 --> 00:47:01.110
  • THAT NEHEMIAH GIVES US
  • 00:47:01.110 --> 00:47:02.150
  • IS WORK WITH THOSE YOU TRUST.
  • 00:47:03.130 --> 00:47:06.130
  • NEHEMIAH SAW WHAT NEEDED
  • 00:47:06.130 --> 00:47:07.200
  • TO BE DONE.
  • 00:47:07.200 --> 00:47:08.080
  • AND HE GATHERED THE PEOPLE
  • 00:47:08.080 --> 00:47:09.190
  • AND HE TOLD THEM THE VERSES
  • 00:47:09.190 --> 00:47:11.010
  • WE READ.
  • 00:47:11.010 --> 00:47:12.070
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:47:12.070 --> 00:47:12.250
  • "YOU SEE THE DISTRESS WE'RE IN,
  • 00:47:12.250 --> 00:47:13.240
  • HOW JERUSALEM LIES WASTE.
  • 00:47:13.270 --> 00:47:16.270
  • LET US BUILD THE WALL SO THAT
  • 00:47:16.270 --> 00:47:18.140
  • WE'LL NO LONGER BE A REPROACH."
  • 00:47:18.140 --> 00:47:20.270
  • WHEN IT COMES TO REBUILDING
  • 00:47:20.270 --> 00:47:22.050
  • THE WALLS OF YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:47:22.050 --> 00:47:23.200
  • YOU NEED TO WORK WITH THOSE
  • 00:47:23.200 --> 00:47:25.010
  • YOU TRUST.
  • 00:47:25.010 --> 00:47:27.020
  • WHO ARE THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST?
  • 00:47:27.020 --> 00:47:29.230
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO BE
  • 00:47:29.230 --> 00:47:30.290
  • PEOPLE WHO TALK TO GOD
  • 00:47:30.290 --> 00:47:32.080
  • MORE THAN THEY TALK TO OTHERS.
  • 00:47:32.170 --> 00:47:35.170
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO BE
  • 00:47:35.170 --> 00:47:37.010
  • THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE
  • 00:47:37.010 --> 00:47:38.040
  • NO PERSONAL OPINION ABOUT HOW
  • 00:47:38.040 --> 00:47:40.040
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP SHOULD WORK;
  • 00:47:40.040 --> 00:47:41.150
  • THEY JUST WANT TO SEE IT
  • 00:47:41.150 --> 00:47:42.080
  • RESTORED FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:47:42.270 --> 00:47:45.270
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO
  • 00:47:45.270 --> 00:47:46.280
  • HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE THAN YOU.
  • 00:47:47.130 --> 00:47:50.130
  • DON'T ASK SOMEBODY,
  • 00:47:50.130 --> 00:47:51.230
  • WHO'S GETTING
  • 00:47:51.230 --> 00:47:52.110
  • THEIR THIRD DIVORCE,
  • 00:47:52.110 --> 00:47:53.070
  • HOW TO FIX YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:47:53.070 --> 00:47:55.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:47:55.070 --> 00:47:58.030
  • AND AS SILLY AS THAT SOUNDS,
  • 00:47:58.030 --> 00:47:59.100
  • THAT'S WHAT SOME PEOPLE DO.
  • 00:47:59.100 --> 00:48:01.210
  • PEOPLE IN THIS CONGREGATION,
  • 00:48:01.210 --> 00:48:02.240
  • WHO'VE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:48:02.240 --> 00:48:03.150
  • FOR DECADES,
  • 00:48:03.150 --> 00:48:04.120
  • NEED TO INVEST THEMSELVES
  • 00:48:04.120 --> 00:48:06.040
  • IN HELPING PEOPLE,
  • 00:48:06.040 --> 00:48:06.270
  • WHO'VE ONLY BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:48:06.270 --> 00:48:07.190
  • A FEW DAYS,
  • 00:48:07.190 --> 00:48:08.170
  • HOW TO SURVIVE THROUGH
  • 00:48:08.170 --> 00:48:09.230
  • THOSE DECADES.
  • 00:48:09.230 --> 00:48:11.200
  • THEY'RE PEOPLE YOU TRUST.
  • 00:48:11.200 --> 00:48:14.040
  • THE LAST PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:48:14.040 --> 00:48:15.020
  • NEHEMIAH SHARES WITH US IS THAT
  • 00:48:15.020 --> 00:48:16.250
  • HE KICKS THE OUTSIDERS OUT.
  • 00:48:17.250 --> 00:48:20.250
  • AS SOON AS HE BEGINS BUILDING,
  • 00:48:20.250 --> 00:48:22.250
  • IN VERSE 19,
  • 00:48:22.250 --> 00:48:23.270
  • HE HAS THREE ADVERSARIES,
  • 00:48:23.270 --> 00:48:25.270
  • SANBALLAT,
  • 00:48:25.270 --> 00:48:27.050
  • TOBIAH,
  • 00:48:27.050 --> 00:48:28.040
  • AND GESHEM.
  • 00:48:28.040 --> 00:48:29.290
  • THESE THREE INDIVIDUALS CAME
  • 00:48:29.290 --> 00:48:32.030
  • TO JERUSALEM AFTER THE WALLS
  • 00:48:32.030 --> 00:48:33.280
  • HAD BEEN TORN DOWN,
  • 00:48:33.280 --> 00:48:34.290
  • AFTER BABYLON HAD TAKEN OVER.
  • 00:48:34.290 --> 00:48:37.010
  • AND THEY BEGIN TO CREATE ALL
  • 00:48:37.010 --> 00:48:38.220
  • KINDS OF TROUBLE FOR NEHEMIAH.
  • 00:48:38.220 --> 00:48:40.190
  • THEY DON'T WANT THE WALLS
  • 00:48:40.190 --> 00:48:42.010
  • REBUILT.
  • 00:48:42.010 --> 00:48:42.190
  • AND THE FIRST THING
  • 00:48:42.190 --> 00:48:43.140
  • THAT NEHEMIAH TELLS THEM IS,
  • 00:48:43.140 --> 00:48:44.250
  • "THE GOD OF HEAVEN
  • 00:48:44.250 --> 00:48:46.180
  • WILL PROSPER US."
  • 00:48:46.180 --> 00:48:47.180
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:48:47.180 --> 00:48:48.130
  • "THE GOD OF HEAVEN
  • 00:48:48.130 --> 00:48:50.040
  • WILL PROSPER US."
  • 00:48:50.040 --> 00:48:50.280
  • HE WAS LETTING HIS ENEMIES
  • 00:48:50.280 --> 00:48:52.140
  • KNOW,
  • 00:48:52.140 --> 00:48:52.280
  • IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER TO ME
  • 00:48:52.280 --> 00:48:54.140
  • WHAT YOU SAY,
  • 00:48:54.140 --> 00:48:55.160
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME
  • 00:48:55.160 --> 00:48:56.180
  • WHAT YOU DO.
  • 00:48:56.180 --> 00:48:57.200
  • WHAT YOU SAY AND WHAT YOU DO
  • 00:48:57.200 --> 00:48:59.080
  • HAS NO BEARING ON MY OUTCOME.
  • 00:48:59.080 --> 00:49:01.150
  • MY OUTCOME IS DETERMINED
  • 00:49:01.150 --> 00:49:03.070
  • BY THE GOD OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:49:03.070 --> 00:49:04.170
  • HE'S THE ONE WHO'S GOING
  • 00:49:04.170 --> 00:49:06.100
  • TO PROSPER ME.
  • 00:49:06.100 --> 00:49:07.250
  • AND THEN HE LET THESE OUTSIDERS
  • 00:49:07.250 --> 00:49:09.140
  • KNOW,
  • 00:49:09.140 --> 00:49:10.070
  • "YOU HAVE NO HERITAGE."
  • 00:49:10.070 --> 00:49:11.260
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:49:11.260 --> 00:49:12.210
  • IN NEHEMIAH 2:20,
  • 00:49:12.210 --> 00:49:14.230
  • "YOU HAVE NO HERITAGE
  • 00:49:14.230 --> 00:49:16.150
  • OR MEMORIAL IN JERUSALEM."
  • 00:49:16.220 --> 00:49:19.220
  • HE WAS SAYING,
  • 00:49:19.220 --> 00:49:20.130
  • THIS IS A COVENANT LAND.
  • 00:49:20.130 --> 00:49:22.260
  • THIS HAS BEEN GIVEN BY GOD
  • 00:49:22.260 --> 00:49:24.170
  • TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,
  • 00:49:24.170 --> 00:49:26.130
  • AND THEIR GENERATIONS FOREVER.
  • 00:49:26.130 --> 00:49:28.050
  • I, NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:49:28.050 --> 00:49:29.130
  • AM A PART OF THAT COVENANT.
  • 00:49:29.130 --> 00:49:30.290
  • BUT YOU OUTSIDERS HAVE NO ROLE
  • 00:49:30.290 --> 00:49:33.050
  • IN THAT COVENANT.
  • 00:49:33.050 --> 00:49:34.020
  • SO YOU NEED TO LEAVE TOWN NOW.
  • 00:49:36.040 --> 00:49:39.040
  • THIS IS THE PURPOSE
  • 00:49:39.040 --> 00:49:40.230
  • OF REBUILDING THE BORDERS
  • 00:49:40.230 --> 00:49:42.040
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:49:42.040 --> 00:49:43.080
  • THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT
  • 00:49:43.080 --> 00:49:44.200
  • OF MARRIAGES DESTROYED
  • 00:49:44.200 --> 00:49:46.070
  • BY OUTSIDERS.
  • 00:49:46.070 --> 00:49:47.190
  • THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT
  • 00:49:47.190 --> 00:49:48.290
  • OF FAMILIES RIPPED APART,
  • 00:49:48.290 --> 00:49:50.260
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE,

  • WHO HAD NO PART
  • 00:49:51.130 --> 00:49:52.130
  • IN THAT COVENANT,
  • 00:49:52.130 --> 00:49:53.160
  • CAME INTO THAT RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:49:53.160 --> 00:49:55.230
  • AND THEY SCATTERED IT
  • 00:49:55.230 --> 00:49:56.240
  • LIKE STRAW IN THE WIND.
  • 00:49:56.240 --> 00:49:58.020
  • YOU HAVE A BIBLICAL PLACE TO
  • 00:49:58.020 --> 00:50:00.130
  • TAKE A STAND AND LET THEM KNOW,
  • 00:50:00.130 --> 00:50:02.090
  • IF YOU ARE NOT A PART

  • 00:50:09.290 --> 00:50:12.290
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:50:14.230 --> 00:50:17.230

  • THE WALLS,
  • 00:50:20.020 --> 00:50:22.000
  • HE REHUNG THE GATES.
  • 00:50:22.000 --> 00:50:24.230
  • AND THERE'S A DISTINCTION
  • 00:50:24.230 --> 00:50:25.200
  • BETWEEN WALLS AND GATES.
  • 00:50:25.200 --> 00:50:26.270
  • THEY WORK TOGETHER BUT THEY
  • 00:50:26.270 --> 00:50:27.270
  • DON'T HAVE THE SAME PURPOSE.
  • 00:50:27.270 --> 00:50:30.070
  • YOU SEE WALLS
  • 00:50:30.070 --> 00:50:31.020
  • ARE FOR PROTECTION,
  • 00:50:31.020 --> 00:50:33.150
  • BUT GATES ARE FOR ACCESS.
  • 00:50:34.040 --> 00:50:37.040
  • AND NEHEMIAH KNEW THAT GATES
  • 00:50:37.040 --> 00:50:38.210
  • WERE NO GOOD IF THE WALLS
  • 00:50:38.210 --> 00:50:39.220
  • WERE BROKE DOWN.
  • 00:50:39.220 --> 00:50:41.140
  • SO HE REBUILT THE WALLS
  • 00:50:41.140 --> 00:50:42.180
  • TO PROTECT THE CITY.
  • 00:50:42.180 --> 00:50:43.220
  • AND THEN HE PUT UP GATES
  • 00:50:43.220 --> 00:50:45.010
  • SO THAT THE RIGHT THINGS COULD
  • 00:50:45.010 --> 00:50:46.230
  • COME IN AND THE WRONG THINGS
  • 00:50:46.230 --> 00:50:48.280
  • COULD GO OUT.
  • 00:50:48.280 --> 00:50:51.050
  • AND I WANT TO CLOSE
