  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: THE LAW
  • 00:00:11.080 --> 00:00:14.080
  • OF FIRST FRUITS IS A GIANT STEP
  • 00:00:14.080 --> 00:00:16.170
  • IN CLIMBING THE STAIRWAY
  • 00:00:16.170 --> 00:00:17.260
  • TO THE STARS OF SUCCESS
  • 00:00:17.260 --> 00:00:20.010
  • AND PERSONAL PROSPERITY.
  • 00:00:20.010 --> 00:00:22.110
  • WHEN YOU OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:00:22.110 --> 00:00:23.240
  • OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:00:23.240 --> 00:00:25.000
  • GOD'S PROMISE THAT HE WILL
  • 00:00:25.000 --> 00:00:27.070
  • POUR OUT HIS PROSPERITY

  • EXCEEDINGLY,
  • 00:00:29.240 --> 00:00:30.190
  • ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:00:30.190 --> 00:00:31.170
  • ABOVE WHAT YOU CAN ASK
  • 00:00:31.170 --> 00:00:32.230
  • OR IMAGINE.
  • 00:00:32.230 --> 00:00:34.110
  • IF YOU IGNORE THE LAW
  • 00:00:34.110 --> 00:00:35.290
  • OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:00:35.290 --> 00:00:37.280
  • GOD SAYS YOUR LACK
  • 00:00:37.280 --> 00:00:39.160
  • WILL NEVER END.
  • 00:00:39.160 --> 00:00:41.030
  • IT WILL AFFECT YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:00:41.030 --> 00:00:42.210
  • IT WILL AFFECT YOUR BUSINESS
  • 00:00:42.210 --> 00:00:44.140
  • FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.

  • TODAY I'M GOING TO OPEN
  • 00:00:46.260 --> 00:00:48.030
  • THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:00:48.030 --> 00:00:49.260
  • THE GREATEST FINANCIAL MANUAL
  • 00:00:49.260 --> 00:00:51.240
  • THAT YOU'VE EVER READ
  • 00:00:51.240 --> 00:00:52.240
  • IN ALL OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:00:52.240 --> 00:00:54.150
  • AND GIVE DIVINE EVIDENCE
  • 00:00:54.150 --> 00:00:56.180
  • TO CONFIRM THIS POWERFUL BIBLE
  • 00:00:56.180 --> 00:00:59.140
  • TEACHING TO DETERMINE
  • 00:00:59.140 --> 00:01:02.120
  • THE QUALITY OF YOUR PROSPERITY
  • 00:01:02.120 --> 00:01:04.190
  • IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:01:04.190 --> 00:01:05.290
  • LET'S READ EXODUS 34:22
  • 00:01:05.290 --> 00:01:08.270
  • AND FOLLOWING.
  • 00:01:08.270 --> 00:01:09.160
  • READY?
  • 00:01:09.160 --> 00:01:10.140
  • "AND YOU SHALL OBSERVE
  • 00:01:10.140 --> 00:01:11.150
  • THE FEAST OF WEEKS OF THE

  • FIRST FRUITS OF WHEAT HARVEST
  • 00:01:13.060 --> 00:01:15.060
  • AND THE FEAST OF INGATHERING
  • 00:01:15.060 --> 00:01:17.070
  • AT THE YEAR'S END.
  • 00:01:17.070 --> 00:01:18.280
  • THREE TIMES IN THE YEAR,
  • 00:01:18.280 --> 00:01:20.240
  • ALL YOUR MEN SHALL APPEAR
  • 00:01:20.240 --> 00:01:22.160
  • BEFORE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:01:22.160 --> 00:01:25.130
  • FOR I WILL CAST OUT THE NATIONS
  • 00:01:25.130 --> 00:01:27.080
  • BEFORE YOU,
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:28.170
  • AND ENLARGE YOUR BORDERS.
  • 00:01:28.170 --> 00:01:30.220
  • NEITHER WILL ANY MAN COVET
  • 00:01:30.220 --> 00:01:32.250
  • YOUR LAND,

  • WHEN YOU GO UP TO APPEAR BEFORE

  • THE LORD YOUR GOD THREE TIMES
  • 00:01:35.160 --> 00:01:37.210
  • IN THE YEAR.
  • 00:01:37.210 --> 00:01:39.000
  • YOU SHALL NOT OFFER THE BLOOD
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:41.010
  • OF MY SACRIFICE WITH LEAVEN,
  • 00:01:41.010 --> 00:01:43.090
  • NOR SHALL THE SACRIFICE
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:44.200
  • OF THE FEAST OF PASSOVER BE LEFT
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:47.010
  • UNTIL MORNING.
  • 00:01:47.010 --> 00:01:48.130
  • THE FIRST OF THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:01:48.130 --> 00:01:50.090
  • OF YOUR LAND,
  • 00:01:50.090 --> 00:01:51.080
  • YOU SHALL BRING TO THE HOUSE
  • 00:01:51.080 --> 00:01:53.200
  • OF THE LORD YOUR GOD."
  • 00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:55.210
  • FATHER GOD,
  • 00:01:55.210 --> 00:01:56.190
  • THANK YOU FOR THE WORD
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:01:59.120
  • THAT IS A LIGHT UNTO OUR FEET
  • 00:01:59.120 --> 00:02:02.070
  • AND A LIGHT UNTO OUR PATHWAY.
  • 00:02:02.070 --> 00:02:05.020
  • LET US HEAR IT.
  • 00:02:05.020 --> 00:02:07.060
  • LET US EXPERIENCE IT.
  • 00:02:07.060 --> 00:02:09.190
  • LET US PRACTICE IT.
  • 00:02:09.190 --> 00:02:11.180
  • FOR IT IS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:02:11.180 --> 00:02:13.190
  • FOR THIS CONGREGATION
  • 00:02:13.190 --> 00:02:15.240
  • AND FOR RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE
  • 00:02:15.240 --> 00:02:17.290
  • WHO DESIRE TO LIVE
  • 00:02:17.290 --> 00:02:19.060
  • ON THE ECONOMY OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:02:19.060 --> 00:02:21.060
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:02:21.060 --> 00:02:23.080
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:02:23.080 --> 00:02:24.220
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:02:24.220 --> 00:02:25.290
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:02:25.290 --> 00:02:26.270
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:02:26.270 --> 00:02:28.140
  • LET'S BEGIN WITH THE BASICS
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:30.180
  • THAT GOD DEMANDS TO BE FIRST.
  • 00:02:32.050 --> 00:02:35.050
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:02:35.050 --> 00:02:36.010
  • "SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM
  • 00:02:36.010 --> 00:02:37.010
  • OF GOD
  • 00:02:37.010 --> 00:02:38.250
  • AND ALL OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:02:38.250 --> 00:02:41.070
  • AND ALL OF THESE THINGS SHALL
  • 00:02:41.070 --> 00:02:43.000
  • BE ADDED UNTO YOU."
  • 00:02:43.000 --> 00:02:45.000
  • HEAR THAT ONE PHRASE,
  • 00:02:45.000 --> 00:02:46.290
  • "ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:02:46.290 --> 00:02:49.240
  • SHALL BE ADDED,"
  • 00:02:49.240 --> 00:02:51.030
  • BECAUSE YOU SEEK FIRST
  • 00:02:51.030 --> 00:02:53.040
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:02:53.040 --> 00:02:54.050
  • WHY DO WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY?
  • 00:02:54.050 --> 00:02:56.110
  • WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY
  • 00:02:56.110 --> 00:02:57.110
  • BECAUSE JESUS ROSE
  • 00:02:57.110 --> 00:02:58.150
  • FROM THE DEAD ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:02:58.150 --> 00:03:00.100
  • SUNDAY IS THE FIRST DAY
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:01.180
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:01.180 --> 00:03:02.220
  • IT IS THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:03:02.220 --> 00:03:04.160
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:04.160 --> 00:03:05.230
  • LISTEN.
  • 00:03:05.230 --> 00:03:06.270
  • YOUR SUCCESS FOR THE WEEK
  • 00:03:06.270 --> 00:03:09.060
  • BEGINS ON SUNDAY BY HONORING
  • 00:03:09.210 --> 00:03:12.210
  • THE LORD AS THE LORD
  • 00:03:12.210 --> 00:03:13.270
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:13.270 --> 00:03:15.100
  • THE FIRST FRUIT SANCTIFIES
  • 00:03:16.040 --> 00:03:19.040
  • THE FOLLOWING FRUIT.
  • 00:03:19.040 --> 00:03:20.220
  • PUTTING GOD FIRST IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:03:20.220 --> 00:03:22.290
  • ESTABLISHES HIS LORDSHIP.
  • 00:03:22.290 --> 00:03:25.170
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:03:25.170 --> 00:03:27.070
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:03:27.070 --> 00:03:28.260
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD,
  • 00:03:28.260 --> 00:03:30.070
  • THERE IS NO BLESSING,
  • 00:03:30.070 --> 00:03:31.190
  • THERE IS NO FAVOR,
  • 00:03:31.190 --> 00:03:33.020
  • THERE IS NO PROSPERITY;
  • 00:03:33.020 --> 00:03:35.000
  • AND YOU LIVE,
  • 00:03:35.000 --> 00:03:36.150
  • ACCORDING TO MALACHI,
  • 00:03:36.150 --> 00:03:37.240
  • UNDER A CURSE.
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:39.150
  • C.S. LEWIS SAYS,
  • 00:03:39.150 --> 00:03:40.180
  • "WHEN FIRST THINGS ARE PUT
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:41.260
  • FIRST,
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:42.270
  • SECOND THINGS BEGIN
  • 00:03:42.270 --> 00:03:44.190
  • TO INCREASE."
  • 00:03:44.190 --> 00:03:46.000
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN
  • 00:03:46.000 --> 00:03:46.190
  • TO BE FIRST?
  • 00:03:46.190 --> 00:03:47.280
  • FIRST IS PRECEDING ALL OTHERS
  • 00:03:47.280 --> 00:03:50.190
  • IN TIME IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE.
  • 00:03:52.000 --> 00:03:55.000
  • IF YOU GO OUT AND RUN A RACE
  • 00:03:55.000 --> 00:03:56.290
  • BY YOURSELF,
  • 00:03:56.290 --> 00:03:58.170
  • YOU COME IN FIRST,
  • 00:03:58.170 --> 00:04:00.200
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS NOBODY ELSE
  • 00:04:00.200 --> 00:04:02.000
  • RUNNING AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:04:02.000 --> 00:04:04.040
  • SO IF YOU REALLY ARE
  • 00:04:04.040 --> 00:04:05.050
  • NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:04:05.050 --> 00:04:06.040
  • THERE HAS TO BE A SEQUENCE
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:07.180
  • OF SOMEBODY BEHIND YOU
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:10.000
  • BEFORE YOU CAN MAKE
  • 00:04:10.000 --> 00:04:10.290
  • THAT DECLARATION.
  • 00:04:10.290 --> 00:04:12.160
  • FIRST DOES NOT MEAN NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:14.130
  • IT DOES NOT MEAN THE ONLY ONE.
  • 00:04:14.130 --> 00:04:17.010
  • NOTHING CAN BE FIRST UNLESS
  • 00:04:17.010 --> 00:04:18.260
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE TO BE
  • 00:04:18.260 --> 00:04:20.220
  • FIRST OF.
  • 00:04:20.220 --> 00:04:22.110
  • FIRST FRUITS IS THE OFFERING
  • 00:04:22.110 --> 00:04:24.130
  • OF THE FIRST GRAIN HARVESTED
  • 00:04:24.130 --> 00:04:26.020
  • IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:26.020 --> 00:04:27.160
  • IF YOU DID NOT BRING YOUR FIRST
  • 00:04:27.160 --> 00:04:29.000
  • FRUITS TO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:31.290
  • GOD INSTRUCTED ISRAEL THAT
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:34.200
  • THERE WOULD BE NO ADDITIONAL
  • 00:04:34.200 --> 00:04:36.090
  • FRUIT FOR THE HARVEST;
  • 00:04:36.090 --> 00:04:38.120
  • THEREFORE,
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:40.220
  • WHENEVER YOU AS A FARMER,
  • 00:04:40.220 --> 00:04:42.280
  • IN THE TIME OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:04:42.280 --> 00:04:44.290
  • DID NOT HAVE THE BLESSINGS
  • 00:04:44.290 --> 00:04:46.010
  • OF GOD BECAUSE YOU REFUSED
  • 00:04:46.010 --> 00:04:48.250
  • TO BRING THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:04:48.250 --> 00:04:49.290
  • TO THE HOUSE OF GOD,
  • 00:04:49.290 --> 00:04:51.210
  • YOU WERE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:04:51.210 --> 00:04:53.190
  • GOD IS THE LORD OF ALL
  • 00:04:53.190 --> 00:04:55.010
  • OR HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:04:55.010 --> 00:04:57.070
  • GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:04:57.070 --> 00:04:58.180
  • AND PLACED THEM IN THE PARADISE
  • 00:04:58.180 --> 00:05:00.170
  • OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
  • 00:05:00.170 --> 00:05:02.090
  • ADAM WENT TO SLEEP
  • 00:05:02.090 --> 00:05:04.040
  • AND HE WOKE UP MARRIED.
  • 00:05:04.040 --> 00:05:06.010
  • IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE AN INSOMNIAC
  • 00:05:06.010 --> 00:05:07.110
  • OUT OF YOU.
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:09.010
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:09.010 --> 00:05:09.180
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO WORK
  • 00:05:09.180 --> 00:05:10.130
  • 60 HOURS A WEEK TO GAIN.
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:13.130
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO FIGHT
  • 00:05:13.130 --> 00:05:15.080
  • THE TRAFFIC GOING TO WORK
  • 00:05:15.080 --> 00:05:17.050
  • AND FROM WORK,
  • 00:05:17.050 --> 00:05:18.180
  • THE SMOG,
  • 00:05:18.180 --> 00:05:19.120
  • THE IRS,
  • 00:05:19.120 --> 00:05:20.210
  • AND THE INCESSANT RINGING
  • 00:05:20.210 --> 00:05:23.050
  • OF A CELL PHONE.
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:24.280
  • I'VE OFTEN SAID,
  • 00:05:24.280 --> 00:05:25.230
  • "IF I WAKE UP IN ETERNITY
  • 00:05:25.230 --> 00:05:27.020
  • AND HEAR A PHONE RING,
  • 00:05:27.020 --> 00:05:28.110
  • I KNOW I DIED AND WENT TO HELL."
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:31.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:31.100 --> 00:05:32.020
  • GOD GAVE ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:05:32.020 --> 00:05:33.140
  • ONE COMMAND,
  • 00:05:33.140 --> 00:05:34.250
  • "LEAVE THE FRUIT ON THE TREE
  • 00:05:34.250 --> 00:05:36.230
  • OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD
  • 00:05:36.230 --> 00:05:37.200
  • AND EVIL ALONE;
  • 00:05:37.200 --> 00:05:39.050
  • IT IS FORBIDDEN FRUIT."
  • 00:05:39.050 --> 00:05:41.130
  • DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:44.030
  • WHY DID GOD CREATE THAT TREE?
  • 00:05:44.030 --> 00:05:46.110
  • THE ANSWER IS TO SEE IF ADAM
  • 00:05:46.110 --> 00:05:48.120
  • AND EVE WOULD PUT HIM FIRST
  • 00:05:48.120 --> 00:05:50.080
  • WHENEVER SATAN CAME
  • 00:05:50.080 --> 00:05:51.090
  • TO TEMPT THEM,
  • 00:05:51.090 --> 00:05:52.160
  • BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT TEMPTATION
  • 00:05:52.160 --> 00:05:53.280
  • WAS COMING.
  • 00:05:53.280 --> 00:05:55.210
  • GOD WANTED TO SEE IF THEY WOULD
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:57.070
  • PUT THE THEIR WILL
  • 00:05:57.070 --> 00:05:58.280
  • ABOVE HIS WILL.
  • 00:05:58.280 --> 00:06:01.030
  • GET THAT PHRASE.
  • 00:06:01.030 --> 00:06:03.020
  • WHEN YOUR DESIRES,
  • 00:06:03.020 --> 00:06:04.230
  • YOUR PLANS,
  • 00:06:04.230 --> 00:06:06.030
  • YOUR IDEAS,
  • 00:06:06.030 --> 00:06:07.220
  • BECOME MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:09.100
  • THAN GOD'S PLAN,
  • 00:06:09.100 --> 00:06:11.050
  • YOU HAVE ADOPTED THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:12.250
  • OF LUCIFER.
  • 00:06:12.250 --> 00:06:14.250
  • LUCIFER CHALLENGED GOD.
  • 00:06:14.250 --> 00:06:17.240
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:19.040
  • "I WILL ASCEND TO THE HILL
  • 00:06:19.040 --> 00:06:20.110
  • OF GOD, I WILL BE LIKE GOD,
  • 00:06:20.110 --> 00:06:22.070
  • I WILL, I WILL, I WILL..."
  • 00:06:22.070 --> 00:06:24.130
  • THOSE FIVE "I WILL'S"
  • 00:06:24.130 --> 00:06:25.210
  • ARE IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH.
  • 00:06:25.210 --> 00:06:27.190
  • THE FACT IS YOU CAN HAVE
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:28.290
  • THE ATTITUDE OF LUCIFER
  • 00:06:28.290 --> 00:06:30.190
  • AND CONFESS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:06:30.280 --> 00:06:33.280
  • WHEN YOUR WILL BECOMES GREATER
  • 00:06:33.280 --> 00:06:36.170
  • THAN GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:06:36.170 --> 00:06:38.000
  • YOU HAVE AN IDOLATRY PROBLEM.
  • 00:06:38.000 --> 00:06:40.110
  • WHEN JESUS AND THE 12 DISCIPLES
  • 00:06:40.110 --> 00:06:42.180
  • WERE REJECTED
  • 00:06:42.180 --> 00:06:43.110
  • BY THE SAMARITANS,
  • 00:06:43.110 --> 00:06:44.290
  • JAMES AND JOHN CAME TO JESUS
  • 00:06:46.000 --> 00:06:49.000
  • AND ASKED PERMISSION FROM JESUS
  • 00:06:49.000 --> 00:06:50.170
  • TO CALL FIRE DOWN ON THOSE
  • 00:06:50.170 --> 00:06:53.090
  • PEOPLE THAT WOULDN'T
  • 00:06:53.090 --> 00:06:54.050
  • ACCEPT THEM.
  • 00:06:54.050 --> 00:06:55.150
  • BURN THEM UP!
  • 00:06:55.150 --> 00:06:57.210
  • JESUS LOOKED AT THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:06:57.210 --> 00:07:00.070
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:07:00.070 --> 00:07:00.280
  • ASKING.
  • 00:07:00.280 --> 00:07:02.210
  • "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT MANNER
  • 00:07:02.210 --> 00:07:03.270
  • OF SPIRIT YOU'RE OF,"
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:05.050
  • LUKE 9:55.
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:07.230
  • SAINT PETER HAD LUCIFER'S
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:08.260
  • ATTITUDE.
  • 00:07:08.260 --> 00:07:09.150
  • PETER SAID TO JESUS,
  • 00:07:09.150 --> 00:07:10.260
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:10.260 --> 00:07:11.190
  • TO THE CROSS."
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:13.060
  • WHEN THE ROMAN SOLDIERS
  • 00:07:13.060 --> 00:07:14.130
  • IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
  • 00:07:14.130 --> 00:07:16.280
  • THREATENED TO TAKE HIM,
  • 00:07:16.280 --> 00:07:18.230
  • PETER SAID,
  • 00:07:18.230 --> 00:07:19.090
  • "WE'LL TAKE UP SWORDS
  • 00:07:19.090 --> 00:07:20.120
  • AND WE'LL DEFEND YOU."
  • 00:07:20.120 --> 00:07:22.150
  • JESUS LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:07:22.150 --> 00:07:23.230
  • "GET BEHIND ME SATAN."
  • 00:07:23.230 --> 00:07:25.070
  • WHY?
  • 00:07:25.070 --> 00:07:26.120
  • BECAUSE THE WHOLE PURPOSE
  • 00:07:26.120 --> 00:07:27.200
  • FOR CHRIST COMING INTO THE EARTH
  • 00:07:27.200 --> 00:07:30.070
  • WAS TO DIE ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:07:30.070 --> 00:07:32.130
  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION SAYS,
  • 00:07:32.130 --> 00:07:33.240
  • "FROM THE FOUNDATIONS
  • 00:07:33.240 --> 00:07:34.260
  • OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:07:34.260 --> 00:07:35.280
  • HE WAS PREDESTINED TO DIE AS
  • 00:07:36.050 --> 00:07:39.050
  • THE LAMB OF GOD THAT TOOK AWAY
  • 00:07:39.050 --> 00:07:41.090
  • THE SINS OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:07:41.090 --> 00:07:43.040
  • AND WHEN PETER WAS SAYING,
  • 00:07:43.040 --> 00:07:44.080
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:44.080 --> 00:07:45.050
  • TO THE CROSS,"
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:46.160
  • THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT SATAN
  • 00:07:46.160 --> 00:07:48.100
  • DID NOT WANT TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:48.100 --> 00:07:50.130
  • AND JESUS LOOKED AT
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:51.130
  • HIS FOLLOWER AND SAID,
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:53.120
  • "YOU ARE SPEAKING THE MESSAGE
  • 00:07:53.190 --> 00:07:56.190
  • OF SATAN IN MY EAR;
  • 00:07:56.190 --> 00:07:58.240
  • GET BEHIND ME."
  • 00:07:58.240 --> 00:08:00.070
  • TRANSLATION: SHUT UP.
  • 00:08:00.240 --> 00:08:03.240
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:05.020 --> 00:08:08.020
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:08:08.020 --> 00:08:09.130
  • IF YOUR ATTITUDE IS CONTROLLED
  • 00:08:09.130 --> 00:08:11.190
  • BY SATAN?
  • 00:08:11.190 --> 00:08:12.250
  • THE ANSWER IS,
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:13.290
  • WHEN YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD
  • 00:08:13.290 --> 00:08:15.210
  • FIRST.
  • 00:08:15.210 --> 00:08:16.230
  • WHEN YOUR WILL
  • 00:08:16.230 --> 00:08:17.210
  • IS NOT GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:08:18.010 --> 00:08:21.010
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU ARE
  • 00:08:21.010 --> 00:08:22.000
  • IN A DANGEROUS TERRITORY.
  • 00:08:22.050 --> 00:08:25.050
  • SATAN DID NOT PUT GOD FIRST.
  • 00:08:25.050 --> 00:08:27.110
  • AND EVEN THOUGH HE WAS
  • 00:08:27.110 --> 00:08:28.080
  • AN ARCHANGEL,
  • 00:08:28.080 --> 00:08:29.270
  • ONE OF THE TOP THREE IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:08:29.270 --> 00:08:31.220
  • GOD KICKED HIM OUT OF HEAVEN
  • 00:08:31.220 --> 00:08:33.140
  • AND HE BECAME THE DEVIL.
  • 00:08:33.140 --> 00:08:35.140
  • WHY?
  • 00:08:35.140 --> 00:08:36.080
  • BECAUSE HE WORSHIPED HIS WILL.
  • 00:08:36.080 --> 00:08:38.080
  • ADAM AND EVE HAD ONE THING
  • 00:08:38.080 --> 00:08:40.070
  • TO DO AND THEY BLEW THAT,
  • 00:08:40.070 --> 00:08:43.010
  • AND GOD KICKED THEM OUT
  • 00:08:43.010 --> 00:08:44.040
  • OF THE GARDEN FOR NOT PUTTING
  • 00:08:44.040 --> 00:08:46.120
  • HIS WILL FIRST.
  • 00:08:46.120 --> 00:08:48.020
  • EVE WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:48.020 --> 00:08:49.190
  • ADAM WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:49.190 --> 00:08:51.080
  • THE GROUND WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:51.080 --> 00:08:52.240
  • "THORNS AND THISTLES
  • 00:08:52.240 --> 00:08:54.050
  • SHALL IT GROW."
  • 00:08:54.050 --> 00:08:55.070
  • AND THAT CURSE LIVES
  • 00:08:55.070 --> 00:08:56.240
  • UNTIL THIS DAY!
  • 00:08:56.240 --> 00:08:59.080
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:08:59.080 --> 00:09:01.120
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:09:01.120 --> 00:09:02.200
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD OF ALL,
  • 00:09:02.200 --> 00:09:05.010
  • THEN HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:09:05.010 --> 00:09:07.230
  • CAN I GET A WITNESS TO THAT?
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:10.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:11.210 --> 00:09:14.210
  • NOW LET'S LOOK AT ABRAHAM.
  • 00:09:14.210 --> 00:09:16.090
  • WHY DID GOD CHOOSE ABRAHAM
  • 00:09:16.090 --> 00:09:17.210
  • TO BE THE FATHER OF ALL
  • 00:09:17.210 --> 00:09:18.190
  • WHO BELIEVE?
  • 00:09:18.190 --> 00:09:20.120
  • WHY IS IT THAT THOUSANDS
  • 00:09:20.120 --> 00:09:21.190
  • OF YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH,
  • 00:09:21.190 --> 00:09:23.080
  • PEOPLE STILL KNOW HIM BETTER
  • 00:09:23.080 --> 00:09:25.070
  • THAN MOST ANY PERSON
  • 00:09:25.070 --> 00:09:26.010
  • ON THE EARTH?
  • 00:09:26.010 --> 00:09:27.180
  • BECAUSE HE UNDERSTOOD THE LAW
  • 00:09:27.180 --> 00:09:28.290
  • OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:09:28.290 --> 00:09:30.140
  • WHEN ABRAHAM TIED ISAAC
  • 00:09:30.140 --> 00:09:32.050
  • AND PLACED HIM ON THE ALTAR
  • 00:09:32.050 --> 00:09:33.270
  • TO SACRIFICE HIM TO GOD,
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:36.020
  • HE LIFTED HIS DAGGER,
  • 00:09:36.020 --> 00:09:37.070
  • AND THE ANGEL OF GOD STOPPED
  • 00:09:37.070 --> 00:09:38.160
  • HIM.
  • 00:09:38.160 --> 00:09:39.210
  • AND THEN THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:09:39.210 --> 00:09:40.210
  • "I KNOW THAT YOU FEAR GOD,"
  • 00:09:40.210 --> 00:09:42.130
  • GENESIS 22:12.
  • 00:09:42.130 --> 00:09:44.140
  • THE LIVING BIBLE RENDERS

  • THIS VERSE THIS WAY;
  • 00:09:45.180 --> 00:09:46.250
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:46.250 --> 00:09:47.230
  • "I KNOW THAT GOD IS FIRST
  • 00:09:47.230 --> 00:09:49.220
  • IN YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:09:49.220 --> 00:09:51.200
  • ONLY WHEN YOU PUT GOD FIRST
  • 00:09:51.200 --> 00:09:54.030
  • IS GOD ABLE TO PROVIDE
  • 00:09:54.030 --> 00:09:56.040
  • WHAT HE PROMISES.
  • 00:09:56.040 --> 00:09:58.130

  • 00:11:26.200 --> 00:11:29.020

  • 00:11:44.070 --> 00:11:46.210
  • WAS A REFLECTION
  • 00:11:46.210 --> 00:11:48.110
  • OF YOUR FINANCIAL ABILITY.
  • 00:11:48.110 --> 00:11:50.160
  • BUT THIS WAS THE COMMAND
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:51.270
  • TO EVERY PERSON IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:11:51.270 --> 00:11:54.010
  • "DON'T COME EMPTY HANDED
  • 00:11:54.010 --> 00:11:56.240
  • BEFORE THE LORD."
  • 00:11:56.240 --> 00:11:59.020
  • IF ALL YOU CAN AFFORD IS A BIRD,
  • 00:11:59.150 --> 00:12:02.170
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:12:02.170 --> 00:12:04.260
  • IF YOU CAN AFFORD A THOUSAND
  • 00:12:04.260 --> 00:12:06.150
  • OXEN AS SOLOMON,
  • 00:12:06.150 --> 00:12:08.110
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:12:08.110 --> 00:12:09.270
  • BUT DO NOT COME EMPTY HANDED.
  • 00:12:10.090 --> 00:12:13.090
  • IN THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:12:13.090 --> 00:12:14.130
  • EVERYTHING IS EITHER SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:14.130 --> 00:12:16.210
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:16.210 --> 00:12:17.160
  • GET THOSE TWO WORDS,
  • 00:12:17.160 --> 00:12:19.100
  • "SACRIFICED" OR "REDEEMED."
  • 00:12:19.100 --> 00:12:22.090
  • EXODUS 13:2,
  • 00:12:22.090 --> 00:12:23.230
  • "CONSECRATE TO ME
  • 00:12:23.230 --> 00:12:25.020
  • ALL THE FIRSTBORN.
  • 00:12:25.020 --> 00:12:26.270
  • WHATEVER OPENS THE WOMB
  • 00:12:26.270 --> 00:12:28.070
  • AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:12:28.070 --> 00:12:29.180
  • BOTH OF MEN AND BEASTS,
  • 00:12:29.180 --> 00:12:31.010
  • IT IS MINE."
  • 00:12:31.010 --> 00:12:33.120
  • I'M READING THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:33.120 --> 00:12:34.290
  • ACCORDING TO OLD TESTAMENT LAW,
  • 00:12:34.290 --> 00:12:36.280
  • THE FIRSTBORN WAS TO BE EITHER
  • 00:12:36.280 --> 00:12:38.210
  • SACRIFICED OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:40.160
  • THERE WAS NO THIRD OPTION.
  • 00:12:40.160 --> 00:12:42.190
  • FAST FORWARD
  • 00:12:42.190 --> 00:12:43.100
  • TO THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:12:43.100 --> 00:12:44.200
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST MEETS
  • 00:12:44.200 --> 00:12:46.250
  • JESUS CHRIST ON THE BANKS
  • 00:12:46.250 --> 00:12:48.110
  • OF THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 00:12:48.110 --> 00:12:50.000
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:12:50.000 --> 00:12:50.220
  • "BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
  • 00:12:50.220 --> 00:12:52.000
  • THAT TAKES AWAY THE SIN
  • 00:12:52.000 --> 00:12:53.080
  • OF THE WORLD,"
  • 00:12:53.080 --> 00:12:54.140
  • JOHN 1:29.
  • 00:12:54.140 --> 00:12:56.100
  • JESUS WAS GOD'S ONLY
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:57.200
  • BEGOTTEN SON.
  • 00:12:57.200 --> 00:12:59.110
  • HE HAD TO BE SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:59.110 --> 00:13:01.220
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:13:01.220 --> 00:13:03.040
  • GOD ALLOWED HIS SON,
  • 00:13:03.040 --> 00:13:05.030
  • A MALE LAMB,
  • 00:13:05.030 --> 00:13:06.160
  • WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE,
  • 00:13:06.160 --> 00:13:08.120
  • TO BE SACRIFICED FOR THE SINS
  • 00:13:08.120 --> 00:13:10.090
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:13:10.090 --> 00:13:11.180
  • THE POINT IS,
  • 00:13:11.180 --> 00:13:12.210
  • IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT CHRIST AS
  • 00:13:12.210 --> 00:13:15.030
  • YOUR SUBSTITUTE ON THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:17.200
  • YOU MUST DIE FOR YOUR SIN,
  • 00:13:18.210 --> 00:13:21.210
  • BECAUSE THE WAGES OF SIN IS
  • 00:13:21.210 --> 00:13:24.140
  • DEATH.
  • 00:13:24.140 --> 00:13:25.260
  • JESUS PAID THE BILL FOR US
  • 00:13:25.260 --> 00:13:28.170
  • TO BE REDEEMED FROM THE POWER
  • 00:13:28.170 --> 00:13:30.270
  • OF SIN AND DARKNESS.
  • 00:13:30.270 --> 00:13:32.170
  • BECAUSE OF THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:32.170 --> 00:13:34.070
  • WE ARE FREE,
  • 00:13:34.070 --> 00:13:35.150
  • WE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 00:13:35.150 --> 00:13:37.040
  • WE HAVE HEALING FROM SICKNESS
  • 00:13:37.040 --> 00:13:39.010
  • AND DISEASE.
  • 00:13:39.010 --> 00:13:40.120
  • THERE IS VICTORY OVER
  • 00:13:40.120 --> 00:13:41.280
  • THE WORLD, THE FLESH,
  • 00:13:41.280 --> 00:13:43.070
  • AND THE DEVIL.
  • 00:13:43.070 --> 00:13:44.090
  • THERE'S THE PROSPERITY
  • 00:13:44.090 --> 00:13:46.020
  • OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:13:46.020 --> 00:13:47.090
  • THE PEACE OF GOD THAT SURPASSES
  • 00:13:47.090 --> 00:13:49.200
  • UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:13:49.200 --> 00:13:51.010
  • HALLELUJAH FOR THE CROSS!
  • 00:13:51.010 --> 00:13:52.290
  • GIVE HIM PRAISE AND GLORY
  • 00:13:52.290 --> 00:13:54.160
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:13:54.160 --> 00:13:56.250
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:57.290 --> 00:14:01.010
  • CONCERNING FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:14:01.010 --> 00:14:02.240
  • WHATEVER IS DONE
  • 00:14:02.240 --> 00:14:03.280
  • WITH FIRST FRUITS DETERMINES
  • 00:14:03.280 --> 00:14:06.170
  • WHAT HAPPENS TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:14:06.170 --> 00:14:09.070
  • SO FOLLOW THIS;
  • 00:14:09.070 --> 00:14:10.230
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRSTBORN SON
  • 00:14:10.230 --> 00:14:12.110
  • OF ABRAHAM.
  • 00:14:12.110 --> 00:14:13.200
  • AS FIRSTBORN,
  • 00:14:13.200 --> 00:14:15.140
  • HE WAS TO BE REDEEMED
  • 00:14:15.140 --> 00:14:17.140
  • OR SACRIFICED.
  • 00:14:17.140 --> 00:14:19.070
  • WHEN ABRAHAM PUT ISAAC
  • 00:14:19.070 --> 00:14:20.130
  • ON THE ALTAR,
  • 00:14:20.130 --> 00:14:22.130
  • GOD SENT A RAM TIED BY THE
  • 00:14:22.130 --> 00:14:25.010
  • HORNS IN A THICKET TO REDEEM
  • 00:14:25.130 --> 00:14:28.130
  • ISAAC.
  • 00:14:28.130 --> 00:14:29.270
  • WHEN THE FIRST FRUITS WAS
  • 00:14:29.270 --> 00:14:31.010
  • GIVEN,
  • 00:14:31.010 --> 00:14:31.220
  • IT BRINGS A MIGHTY HARVEST.
  • 00:14:31.220 --> 00:14:33.160
  • FOLLOW THE HISTORY.
  • 00:14:33.160 --> 00:14:35.110
  • WHATEVER IS DONE WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:14:35.110 --> 00:14:36.270
  • PORTION DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:14:36.270 --> 00:14:39.090
  • TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:14:39.090 --> 00:14:40.290
  • WE GO TO CHURCH
  • 00:14:40.290 --> 00:14:41.260
  • ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:14:41.260 --> 00:14:43.130
  • IT DETERMINES THE QUALITY
  • 00:14:43.130 --> 00:14:45.240
  • OF THE REST OF THE SIX DAYS.
  • 00:14:45.240 --> 00:14:48.110
  • YOU GIVE TO GOD YOUR TITHE
  • 00:14:48.110 --> 00:14:50.130
  • FIRST,
  • 00:14:50.130 --> 00:14:51.070
  • AND HE BLESSES WHAT IS LEFT.
  • 00:14:51.070 --> 00:14:53.270
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:14:53.270 --> 00:14:56.060
  • HE HAD TWO SONS,
  • 00:14:56.060 --> 00:14:57.160
  • JACOB AND ESAU.
  • 00:14:57.160 --> 00:14:59.030
  • JACOB HAD 12 SONS,
  • 00:14:59.030 --> 00:15:01.030
  • AND THEIR DESCENDANTS BECAME
  • 00:15:01.030 --> 00:15:02.250
  • THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:15:02.250 --> 00:15:05.000
  • GOD SENT JOSEPH INTO EGYPT
  • 00:15:05.000 --> 00:15:07.090
  • WHERE HE BECAME
  • 00:15:07.090 --> 00:15:08.000
  • THE PRIME MINISTER.
  • 00:15:08.000 --> 00:15:09.130
  • JOSEPH SENT FOR HIS FAMILY,
  • 00:15:09.130 --> 00:15:11.090
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO WERE 70
  • 00:15:11.090 --> 00:15:13.150
  • IN NUMBER.
  • 00:15:13.150 --> 00:15:14.200
  • AND THEY STAYED IN EGYPT
  • 00:15:14.200 --> 00:15:16.100
  • FOR 430 YEARS.
  • 00:15:16.100 --> 00:15:18.210
  • THEY BECAME A MIGHTY NATION
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:20.270
  • OF ALMOST TWO MILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:20.270 --> 00:15:23.050
  • EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE
  • 00:15:23.050 --> 00:15:24.060
  • PERSECUTED,
  • 00:15:24.060 --> 00:15:25.150
  • THEY PROSPERED AND THEY GREW.
  • 00:15:25.150 --> 00:15:27.260
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:27.260 --> 00:15:28.240
  • BECAUSE THE FIRST FRUIT,
  • 00:15:28.240 --> 00:15:30.160
  • ISAAC ON MOUNT MORIAH,
  • 00:15:30.160 --> 00:15:32.280
  • HAD BEEN GIVEN TO GOD.
  • 00:15:32.280 --> 00:15:34.200
  • AND WHAT YOU DO WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:15:34.200 --> 00:15:36.030
  • FRUIT DETERMINES THE GUARANTEE
  • 00:15:36.030 --> 00:15:38.240
  • OF EVERYTHING THAT COMES
  • 00:15:38.240 --> 00:15:40.000
  • AFTER IT!
  • 00:15:40.000 --> 00:15:40.240
  • THAT'S WHY THEY ARE BLESSED
  • 00:15:40.240 --> 00:15:42.160
  • AND ALWAYS WILL BE BLESSED,
  • 00:15:42.160 --> 00:15:44.210
  • BECAUSE GOD IS KEEPING
  • 00:15:44.210 --> 00:15:46.130
  • HIS COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM!
  • 00:15:46.130 --> 00:15:48.130
  • GIVE THE LORD A SHOUT OF PRAISE
  • 00:15:48.130 --> 00:15:50.110
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:15:50.110 --> 00:15:52.090
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:56.270
  • NOW LET ME SHOW YOU HOW THAT
  • 00:15:56.270 --> 00:15:57.220
  • WORKS IN REVERSE.
  • 00:15:57.220 --> 00:15:59.080
  • IF YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD FIRST,
  • 00:15:59.080 --> 00:16:01.200
  • IT DOESN'T STOP
  • 00:16:01.200 --> 00:16:02.170
  • GOD FROM BEING FIRST;
  • 00:16:02.170 --> 00:16:05.050
  • IT ONLY RELEASES THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:16:05.050 --> 00:16:07.030
  • OF GOD UPON YOU.
  • 00:16:07.030 --> 00:16:09.010
  • IT RELEASES THE CURSE UPON
  • 00:16:09.010 --> 00:16:11.060
  • EVERYTHING YOU PUT YOUR HANDS
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:12.210
  • TO FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:16:12.210 --> 00:16:15.080
  • UNTIL YOU GET YOUR ACT
  • 00:16:15.080 --> 00:16:16.090
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:16:16.090 --> 00:16:17.160
  • THE ONLY WAY OUT IS REDEMPTION,
  • 00:16:17.160 --> 00:16:19.250
  • WHICH MEANS TO BUY BACK
  • 00:16:19.250 --> 00:16:21.200
  • FROM DESTRUCTION BY OBEYING
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:24.070
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:24.280 --> 00:16:27.280
  • WOW.
  • 00:16:27.280 --> 00:16:30.030
  • CONSIDER THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:16:30.030 --> 00:16:31.200
  • AND THE FALL OF JERICHO.
  • 00:16:31.200 --> 00:16:33.150
  • FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS
  • 00:16:33.150 --> 00:16:34.180
  • OF SLAVERY IN EGYPT WAS
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:35.270
  • FOLLOWED BY 40 YEARS OF HEAT
  • 00:16:36.150 --> 00:16:39.150
  • AND GRIT IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:16:39.150 --> 00:16:41.280
  • WITH JOSHUA AS THEIR LEADER,
  • 00:16:41.280 --> 00:16:44.000
  • GOD RELEASED A PLAN THAT WOULD
  • 00:16:44.000 --> 00:16:45.270
  • BEGIN THE CONQUEST
  • 00:16:45.270 --> 00:16:47.180
  • OF THE HOLY LAND.
  • 00:16:47.180 --> 00:16:49.050
  • THINK OF JERICHO
  • 00:16:49.050 --> 00:16:50.090
  • AS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:50.090 --> 00:16:51.140
  • JERICHO'S THE CITY.
  • 00:16:51.140 --> 00:16:53.260
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY
  • 00:16:53.260 --> 00:16:55.060
  • THAT STOOD BETWEEN ISRAEL
  • 00:16:55.060 --> 00:16:57.050
  • AND THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:16:57.050 --> 00:16:59.180
  • GOD MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE WAS
  • 00:16:59.180 --> 00:17:01.160
  • GIVING JERICHO TO THE JEWISH
  • 00:17:01.160 --> 00:17:04.030
  • PEOPLE AS A GIFT,
  • 00:17:04.030 --> 00:17:06.040
  • BECAUSE THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:17:06.040 --> 00:17:07.100
  • "I'M GOING TO FIGHT FOR YOU."
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:09.240
  • THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING
  • 00:17:09.240 --> 00:17:10.270
  • THAT WAS FORBIDDEN?
  • 00:17:10.270 --> 00:17:12.020
  • JOSHUA 6:18 AND 19,
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:14.150
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:17:14.150 --> 00:17:15.070
  • "THE GOLD AND THE SILVER
  • 00:17:15.070 --> 00:17:16.280
  • OF JERICHO BELONG TO ME.
  • 00:17:17.020 --> 00:17:20.020
  • AND YOU, BY ALL MEANS,
  • 00:17:20.020 --> 00:17:21.230
  • ABSTAIN FROM THE ACCURSED THING,
  • 00:17:21.230 --> 00:17:24.030
  • LEST YOU BECOME ACCURSED WHEN
  • 00:17:24.030 --> 00:17:26.130
  • YOU TAKE THE ACCURSED THING AND
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:28.030
  • MAKE THE CAMP OF ISRAEL A CURSE
  • 00:17:28.030 --> 00:17:30.240
  • AND A PLACE OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:17:31.000 --> 00:17:34.000
  • BUT ALL THE GOLD,
  • 00:17:34.000 --> 00:17:35.100
  • AND ALL THE SILVER,
  • 00:17:35.100 --> 00:17:36.260
  • AND ALL THE VESSELS OF IRON,
  • 00:17:36.260 --> 00:17:39.000
  • ARE CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:17:39.000 --> 00:17:41.010
  • THEY SHALL COME INTO
  • 00:17:41.010 --> 00:17:42.090
  • THE TREASURY OF THE LORD."
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:44.230
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:45.270
  • BECAUSE ISRAEL FULLY UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:17:45.270 --> 00:17:47.210
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:17:47.210 --> 00:17:49.040
  • THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:17:49.040 --> 00:17:50.240
  • IN JERICHO BELONGED
  • 00:17:50.240 --> 00:17:52.100
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:17:52.100 --> 00:17:53.080
  • KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF IT,
  • 00:17:53.080 --> 00:17:54.170
  • BECAUSE GOD WAS GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:17:54.170 --> 00:17:55.280
  • YOU EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WOULD
  • 00:17:55.280 --> 00:17:57.080
  • COME AFTER IT.
  • 00:17:57.080 --> 00:17:58.080
  • EVERYBODY GOT THE MESSAGE
  • 00:17:58.080 --> 00:18:00.120
  • BUT ONE GUY, ACHAN,
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:04.050
  • BECAUSE HE WAS THE SMART ALECK
  • 00:18:04.050 --> 00:18:06.150
  • WHO KNEW BETTER.
  • 00:18:06.150 --> 00:18:08.000
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE RELATIVES
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:09.050
  • THAT ALWAYS KNOW BETTER?
  • 00:18:09.050 --> 00:18:11.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:11.260 --> 00:18:12.140
  • THEY ALWAYS HAVE THE BETTER
  • 00:18:12.140 --> 00:18:13.180
  • IDEA,
  • 00:18:13.180 --> 00:18:14.180
  • AND IT ALWAYS TURNS OUT
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:15.260
  • TO BE A DISASTER.
  • 00:18:15.260 --> 00:18:17.220
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:17.220 --> 00:18:18.120
  • THE BATTLE OF AI,
  • 00:18:18.120 --> 00:18:19.080
  • ISRAEL'S ARMY WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:22.180
  • JOSHUA INQUIRED OF THE LORD,
  • 00:18:22.180 --> 00:18:24.110
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:18:24.110 --> 00:18:24.290
  • "GET UP;
  • 00:18:24.290 --> 00:18:25.150
  • THERE'S SIN IN THE CAMP."
  • 00:18:25.150 --> 00:18:26.290
  • AND THEY WENT TENT BY TENT
  • 00:18:26.290 --> 00:18:28.230
  • SEARCHING.
  • 00:18:28.230 --> 00:18:29.230
  • THEY SEARCHED 11 TRIBES.
  • 00:18:29.230 --> 00:18:32.100
  • AND THEY REACHED ACHAN'S TRIBE.
  • 00:18:32.100 --> 00:18:34.220
  • THE TRIBE OF JUDAH WAS LAST.
  • 00:18:34.220 --> 00:18:36.210
  • AND THEY CAME TO HIS TENT,
  • 00:18:36.210 --> 00:18:38.080
  • AND JOSHUA COMMANDED ACHAN
  • 00:18:38.080 --> 00:18:40.020
  • IN JOSHUA 7:19,
  • 00:18:40.020 --> 00:18:42.010
  • "GIVE GOD THE GLORY."
  • 00:18:42.010 --> 00:18:43.240
  • THAT MEANS THE THINGS
  • 00:18:43.240 --> 00:18:44.240
  • YOU'VE STOLEN,
  • 00:18:44.240 --> 00:18:46.030
  • GIVE THEM BACK.
  • 00:18:46.030 --> 00:18:47.140
  • ACHAN HAD STOLEN THE GLORY
  • 00:18:47.140 --> 00:18:48.270
  • OF GOD BECAUSE HE TOOK
  • 00:18:48.270 --> 00:18:50.000
  • THE THINGS THAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:18:50.000 --> 00:18:52.070
  • THE RESULT WAS THAT ACHAN,
  • 00:18:52.080 --> 00:18:55.080
  • HIS WIFE,
  • 00:18:55.080 --> 00:18:56.190
  • HIS SONS,
  • 00:18:56.190 --> 00:18:57.090
  • HIS DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:18:57.090 --> 00:18:58.010
  • HIS LIVESTOCK,
  • 00:18:58.010 --> 00:18:59.110
  • WERE STONED TO DEATH
  • 00:18:59.110 --> 00:19:00.190
  • BY ALL OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:19:00.190 --> 00:19:02.120
  • AND THEY STACKED THEIR BODIES
  • 00:19:02.120 --> 00:19:03.250
  • IN A PILE AND BURNED THEM WITH
  • 00:19:03.250 --> 00:19:05.160
  • FIRE TO PURGE ISRAEL OF THE SIN
  • 00:19:05.250 --> 00:19:08.250
  • OF TAKING WHAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:19:08.250 --> 00:19:11.150
  • THINK ABOUT THIS STORY.
  • 00:19:11.150 --> 00:19:12.260
  • BECAUSE OF ONE MAN'S
  • 00:19:12.260 --> 00:19:14.060
  • DISOBEDIENCE,
  • 00:19:14.060 --> 00:19:15.100
  • THE ENTIRE NATION SUFFERED
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:17.140
  • THE CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:19:17.140 --> 00:19:19.020
  • THEY HAD TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:19:19.020 --> 00:19:20.130
  • THE ACHAN FACTOR.
  • 00:19:20.130 --> 00:19:23.010
  • ARE YOU TAKING WHAT BELONGS
  • 00:19:23.010 --> 00:19:24.110
  • TO THE LORD?
  • 00:19:24.110 --> 00:19:25.290
  • IS YOUR FAMILY OR YOUR CHILDREN?
  • 00:19:25.290 --> 00:19:28.040
  • WILL GENERATIONS AFTER YOU
  • 00:19:28.040 --> 00:19:30.040
  • SUFFER BECAUSE OF YOUR REFUSAL
  • 00:19:30.040 --> 00:19:32.170
  • TO OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:19:32.170 --> 00:19:33.170
  • OF FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:19:33.170 --> 00:19:35.070
  • IF THE CHURCH IS ONE BODY
  • 00:19:35.070 --> 00:19:36.230
  • FITLY JOINED TOGETHER,
  • 00:19:36.230 --> 00:19:38.180
  • THEN YOUR DISOBEDIENCE AFFECTS
  • 00:19:38.180 --> 00:19:40.080
  • THE WHOLE BODY.
  • 00:19:40.080 --> 00:19:41.080
  • IF ONE MAN AFFECTED TWO MILLION
  • 00:19:41.080 --> 00:19:43.010
  • PEOPLE IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:19:43.010 --> 00:19:44.090
  • CERTAINLY ONE MAN
  • 00:19:44.090 --> 00:19:45.090
  • CAN AFFECT 22.000 HERE
  • 00:19:45.090 --> 00:19:47.060
  • AT CORNERSTONE CHURCH.
  • 00:19:47.060 --> 00:19:49.130
  • THIS EXPLAINS WHY SOME CHURCHES
  • 00:19:49.130 --> 00:19:51.080
  • DO NOT FINANCIALLY PROSPER.
  • 00:19:51.080 --> 00:19:53.130
  • WHEN ISRAEL WAS IN THE DESERT,
  • 00:19:53.130 --> 00:19:54.250
  • ALL THEY HAD WAS MANNA.
  • 00:19:54.250 --> 00:19:56.140
  • NONE OF THEIR CLOTHES WORE OUT.
  • 00:19:56.140 --> 00:19:58.020
  • THEY WERE NOT SICK NOR FEEBLE,
  • 00:19:58.020 --> 00:19:59.220
  • NO ONE, FOR 40 YEARS.
  • 00:19:59.260 --> 00:20:02.260
  • GOD'S ABUNDANCE WILL BE
  • 00:20:02.260 --> 00:20:04.190
  • WITHHELD FROM THE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:20:04.190 --> 00:20:07.120
  • REFUSE TO HONOR HIM AS FIRST.
  • 00:20:07.220 --> 00:20:10.220
  • THE SPIRIT OF ACHAN TAKES WHAT
  • 00:20:10.220 --> 00:20:12.110
  • BELONGS TO GOD AND KEEPS IT
  • 00:20:12.110 --> 00:20:14.160
  • FOR HIMSELF AT THE EXPENSE
  • 00:20:14.160 --> 00:20:17.020
  • OF OTHERS.
  • 00:20:17.020 --> 00:20:18.210
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:20:18.210 --> 00:20:19.220
  • AND TITHING.
  • 00:20:19.220 --> 00:20:20.160
  • TITHING IS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:20.160 --> 00:20:22.080
  • LET'S REVIEW WHAT WE'VE
  • 00:20:22.080 --> 00:20:23.060
  • LEARNED.
  • 00:20:23.060 --> 00:20:24.080
  • THE FIRST FRUITS INCLUDE
  • 00:20:24.080 --> 00:20:25.110
  • CHILDREN, ANIMALS, CROPS,
  • 00:20:25.110 --> 00:20:27.210
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:20:27.210 --> 00:20:29.130
  • GOD SIMPLY SAYS,
  • 00:20:29.130 --> 00:20:30.150
  • I WANT TO BE THE FIRST
  • 00:20:30.150 --> 00:20:31.180
  • OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:20:31.180 --> 00:20:32.210
  • WHEN GOD DESTROYED JERICHO,
  • 00:20:32.210 --> 00:20:34.120
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY CONQUERED
  • 00:20:34.120 --> 00:20:36.060
  • ON THE WAY
  • 00:20:36.060 --> 00:20:36.230
  • TO THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:20:36.230 --> 00:20:37.280
  • IT WAS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:37.280 --> 00:20:39.030
  • AND GOD SAYS, IT'S MINE.
  • 00:20:39.030 --> 00:20:41.100
  • YOUR INCOME IS EITHER
  • 00:20:41.100 --> 00:20:42.250
  • CONSECRATED OR CURSED.
  • 00:20:42.250 --> 00:20:45.180
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:20:45.180 --> 00:20:46.160
  • IT'S EITHER CONSECRATED
  • 00:20:46.160 --> 00:20:47.290
  • OR CURSED.
  • 00:20:47.290 --> 00:20:48.200
  • THE TITHE, IN THE SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:20:48.200 --> 00:20:50.130
  • IS CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:52.100
  • IF YOU KEEP IT FOR YOURSELF,
  • 00:20:52.100 --> 00:20:54.080
  • IT BECOMES A --
  • 00:20:54.080 --> 00:20:55.290
  • [Curse.]
  • 00:20:55.290 --> 00:20:56.210
  • -- CURSE,
  • 00:20:56.210 --> 00:20:58.060
  • BECAUSE IT'S STOLEN FROM GOD.
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:21:01.060
  • GOD MAKES THAT CLEAR
  • 00:21:01.060 --> 00:21:02.130
  • IN MALACHI 3:8 AND 9.
  • 00:21:02.130 --> 00:21:04.260
  • "WILL A MAN ROB GOD?
  • 00:21:04.260 --> 00:21:05.290
  • YOU'VE ROBBED ME.
  • 00:21:05.290 --> 00:21:07.160
  • HOW DID WE ROB YOU?"
  • 00:21:07.160 --> 00:21:09.020
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:21:09.020 --> 00:21:09.200
  • "YOU HAVE STOLEN THE TITHE
  • 00:21:09.200 --> 00:21:12.080
  • AND THE OFFERING FROM ME.
  • 00:21:12.080 --> 00:21:13.200
  • YOU ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE;
  • 00:21:13.200 --> 00:21:15.060
  • FOR YOU HAVE ROBBED ME."
  • 00:21:15.210 --> 00:21:18.210
  • THE TITHE IS A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:19.250 --> 00:21:22.250
  • IT'S NOT A DEBT WE OWE;
  • 00:21:22.250 --> 00:21:24.050
  • IT'S A SEED WE SOW.
  • 00:21:24.050 --> 00:21:26.200
  • WHEREVER THERE IS THE NUMBER
  • 00:21:26.200 --> 00:21:27.210
  • OF TEN INVOLVED,
  • 00:21:27.210 --> 00:21:29.110
  • THERE'S A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:29.110 --> 00:21:31.140
  • THE PLAGUES WERE USED TO SET
  • 00:21:31.140 --> 00:21:32.280
  • ISRAEL FREE FROM PHARAOH,
  • 00:21:32.280 --> 00:21:34.210
  • TEN PLAGUES.
  • 00:21:34.210 --> 00:21:35.270
  • TEN COMMANDMENTS WERE GIVEN
  • 00:21:35.270 --> 00:21:37.120
  • TO SET THE WORLD FREE
  • 00:21:37.120 --> 00:21:39.080
  • FROM THE TYRANNY OF EVIL.
  • 00:21:39.080 --> 00:21:41.090
  • TEN DONKEYS WERE SENT BY JOSEPH
  • 00:21:41.090 --> 00:21:43.090
  • TO BRING JACOB AND ALL OF
  • 00:21:43.090 --> 00:21:45.120
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY
  • 00:21:45.120 --> 00:21:47.140
  • TO THE LANDS OF EGYPT.
  • 00:21:47.140 --> 00:21:49.080
  • THE TENTH PART OF YOUR INCREASE
  • 00:21:49.080 --> 00:21:51.090
  • IS THE REDEMPTION
  • 00:21:51.090 --> 00:21:52.040
  • OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:21:52.040 --> 00:21:53.070
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GIVE 10%
  • 00:21:53.130 --> 00:21:56.130
  • OF YOUR INCOME
  • 00:21:56.130 --> 00:21:57.180
  • AND NOT GIVE THE FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:21:57.180 --> 00:21:59.190
  • THAT'S A QUESTION.
  • 00:21:59.190 --> 00:22:00.180
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:00.180 --> 00:22:02.130
  • LET'S PRETEND FOR JUST A MOMENT
  • 00:22:02.130 --> 00:22:04.030
  • THAT EACH ONE OF THESE ONE
  • 00:22:04.030 --> 00:22:06.110
  • DOLLAR BILLS IS A HUNDRED
  • 00:22:06.110 --> 00:22:08.180
  • DOLLAR BILL.
  • 00:22:08.180 --> 00:22:09.100
  • THIS IS A LOW BUCKET
  • 00:22:09.100 --> 00:22:10.250
  • ILLUSTRATION HERE.
  • 00:22:10.250 --> 00:22:12.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:12.140 --> 00:22:12.270
  • THE QUESTION IS;
  • 00:22:12.270 --> 00:22:13.290
  • CAN YOU GIVE GOD A TENTH
  • 00:22:13.290 --> 00:22:15.040
  • AND NOT PAY TITHE?
  • 00:22:15.040 --> 00:22:16.070
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:16.070 --> 00:22:18.220
  • IF YOU SIT DOWN TO PAY
  • 00:22:18.220 --> 00:22:19.250
  • YOUR BILLS,
  • 00:22:19.250 --> 00:22:20.170
  • AND YOU DO YOUR HOUSE NOTE,
  • 00:22:20.170 --> 00:22:22.240
  • YOUR CAR NOTE,
  • 00:22:22.240 --> 00:22:23.210
  • YOUR TWO CAR NOTES,

  • YOUR POODLE SHAMPOO,
  • 00:22:25.070 --> 00:22:28.070
  • YOUR TRIP TOO HAWAII,

  • YOUR, YOUR, YOUR, YOUR...
  • 00:22:29.160 --> 00:22:31.220
  • AND YOU GIVE GOD THIS,
  • 00:22:31.220 --> 00:22:34.190
  • GOD DON'T WANT THIS.
  • 00:22:34.190 --> 00:22:37.080
  • YOU KNOW ALL OF IT BELONGS
  • 00:22:37.080 --> 00:22:38.040
  • TO HIM.
  • 00:22:38.040 --> 00:22:38.190
  • AND IF HE WANTED,
  • 00:22:38.190 --> 00:22:39.090
  • HE'D GET IT ALL.
  • 00:22:39.090 --> 00:22:41.170
  • WHAT HE WANTS IS THIS ONE.
  • 00:22:41.170 --> 00:22:44.080
  • THIS IS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:22:44.080 --> 00:22:46.210
  • WHEN HE GETS THIS ONE,
  • 00:22:46.210 --> 00:22:48.030
  • ALL OF THESE ARE CONSECRATED.
  • 00:22:48.030 --> 00:22:50.290
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:56.020 --> 00:22:59.020
  • IF YOU WANT GOD'S FAVOR,

  • HIS ABUNDANCE,
  • 00:23:00.280 --> 00:23:02.220
  • UNLIMITED VICTORY,
  • 00:23:02.220 --> 00:23:05.140
  • SUPERNATURAL HEALTH,

  • UNLIMITED FAVOR,
  • 00:23:12.000 --> 00:23:14.200
  • THEN GIVE THE LORD THE FIRST
  • 00:23:14.200 --> 00:23:15.270
  • FRUITS AND YOU WILL PROSPER.
  • 00:23:15.270 --> 00:23:18.160
  • THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
  • 00:23:18.200 --> 00:23:21.200
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO EXPLODE
  • 00:23:23.000 --> 00:23:26.000
  • WITH ABUNDANCE.
  • 00:23:26.000 --> 00:23:27.250
  • BUT HE WILL NOT REWARD
  • 00:23:27.250 --> 00:23:30.100
  • DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:23:30.100 --> 00:23:32.170
  • LOOK AT THE ILLUSTRATIONS
  • 00:23:32.170 --> 00:23:33.260
  • OF ADAM AND EVE,
  • 00:23:33.260 --> 00:23:35.260
  • OF ACHAN'S FAMILY.
  • 00:23:35.260 --> 00:23:37.210
  • HE JUST DOES NOT REWARD
