  • 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
  • 00:09:44.140 --> 00:09:45.180
  • 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
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:58.130 --> 00:10:00.010

  • 00:11:33.230 --> 00:11:35.150
  • I'VE JUST READ IT TO YOU
  • 00:11:35.150 --> 00:11:36.160
  • IN THE TEXT.
  • 00:11:36.160 --> 00:11:37.290
  • GOD ESTABLISHED A SYSTEM
  • 00:11:37.290 --> 00:11:39.050
  • OF SACRIFICE IN WHICH ANIMALS
  • 00:11:39.050 --> 00:11:41.160
  • WERE TO BE BURNED AS AN OFFERING
  • 00:11:41.160 --> 00:11:43.030
  • UPON THE ALTAR.
  • 00:11:43.030 --> 00:11:44.090
  • IN LEVITICUS 1,
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:45.140
  • GOD DESIGNATED FIVE DIFFERENT
  • 00:11:45.140 --> 00:11:47.050
  • ANIMALS THAT WERE ACCEPTABLE
  • 00:11:47.050 --> 00:11:49.110
  • FOR SACRIFICES.
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:51.000
  • THE FIVE CLEAN ANIMALS WERE
  • 00:11:51.000 --> 00:11:52.190
  • OXEN, GOATS, SHEEP,
  • 00:11:52.190 --> 00:11:54.200
  • PIGEONS, AND TURTLE DOVES.
  • 00:11:54.200 --> 00:11:56.220
  • AND THE ANIMAL YOU SACRIFICED
  • 00:11:56.220 --> 00:11:59.060
  • WAS A REFLECTION
  • 00:11:59.060 --> 00:12:00.270
  • OF YOUR FINANCIAL ABILITY.
  • 00:12:00.270 --> 00:12:03.030
  • BUT THIS WAS THE COMMAND
  • 00:12:03.030 --> 00:12:04.130
  • TO EVERY PERSON IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:12:04.130 --> 00:12:06.170
  • "DON'T COME EMPTY HANDED
  • 00:12:06.170 --> 00:12:09.110
  • BEFORE THE LORD."
  • 00:12:09.110 --> 00:12:11.180
  • IF ALL YOU CAN AFFORD IS A BIRD,
  • 00:12:12.020 --> 00:12:15.020
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:17.100
  • IF YOU CAN AFFORD A THOUSAND
  • 00:12:17.100 --> 00:12:18.290
  • OXEN AS SOLOMON,
  • 00:12:18.290 --> 00:12:20.250
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:12:20.250 --> 00:12:22.120
  • BUT DO NOT COME EMPTY HANDED.
  • 00:12:22.230 --> 00:12:25.230
  • IN THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:12:25.230 --> 00:12:26.280
  • EVERYTHING IS EITHER SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:26.280 --> 00:12:29.050
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:29.050 --> 00:12:30.000
  • GET THOSE TWO WORDS,
  • 00:12:30.000 --> 00:12:31.240
  • "SACRIFICED" OR "REDEEMED."
  • 00:12:31.240 --> 00:12:34.230
  • EXODUS 13:2,
  • 00:12:34.230 --> 00:12:36.080
  • "CONSECRATE TO ME
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:37.160
  • ALL THE FIRSTBORN.
  • 00:12:37.160 --> 00:12:39.110
  • WHATEVER OPENS THE WOMB
  • 00:12:39.110 --> 00:12:40.220
  • AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:12:40.220 --> 00:12:42.020
  • BOTH OF MEN AND BEASTS,
  • 00:12:42.020 --> 00:12:43.160
  • IT IS MINE."
  • 00:12:43.160 --> 00:12:45.260
  • I'M READING THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:45.260 --> 00:12:47.130
  • ACCORDING TO OLD TESTAMENT LAW,
  • 00:12:47.130 --> 00:12:49.120
  • THE FIRSTBORN WAS TO BE EITHER
  • 00:12:49.120 --> 00:12:51.050
  • SACRIFICED OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:51.050 --> 00:12:53.000
  • THERE WAS NO THIRD OPTION.
  • 00:12:53.000 --> 00:12:55.030
  • FAST FORWARD
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:55.240
  • TO THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:12:55.240 --> 00:12:57.050
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST MEETS
  • 00:12:57.050 --> 00:12:59.090
  • JESUS CHRIST ON THE BANKS
  • 00:12:59.090 --> 00:13:00.280
  • OF THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 00:13:00.280 --> 00:13:02.170
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:13:02.170 --> 00:13:03.080
  • "BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
  • 00:13:03.080 --> 00:13:04.170
  • THAT TAKES AWAY THE SIN
  • 00:13:04.170 --> 00:13:05.240
  • OF THE WORLD,"
  • 00:13:05.240 --> 00:13:07.000
  • JOHN 1:29.
  • 00:13:07.000 --> 00:13:08.260
  • JESUS WAS GOD'S ONLY
  • 00:13:08.260 --> 00:13:10.070
  • BEGOTTEN SON.
  • 00:13:10.070 --> 00:13:11.280
  • HE HAD TO BE SACRIFICED
  • 00:13:11.280 --> 00:13:14.060
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:13:14.060 --> 00:13:15.190
  • GOD ALLOWED HIS SON,
  • 00:13:15.190 --> 00:13:17.170
  • A MALE LAMB,
  • 00:13:17.170 --> 00:13:19.000
  • WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE,
  • 00:13:19.000 --> 00:13:20.270
  • TO BE SACRIFICED FOR THE SINS
  • 00:13:20.270 --> 00:13:22.240
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:13:22.240 --> 00:13:24.020
  • THE POINT IS,
  • 00:13:24.020 --> 00:13:25.050
  • IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT CHRIST AS
  • 00:13:25.050 --> 00:13:27.180
  • YOUR SUBSTITUTE ON THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:27.180 --> 00:13:30.050
  • YOU MUST DIE FOR YOUR SIN,
  • 00:13:31.050 --> 00:13:34.050
  • BECAUSE THE WAGES OF SIN IS
  • 00:13:34.050 --> 00:13:36.280
  • DEATH.
  • 00:13:36.280 --> 00:13:38.110
  • JESUS PAID THE BILL FOR US
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:41.020
  • TO BE REDEEMED FROM THE POWER
  • 00:13:41.020 --> 00:13:43.110
  • OF SIN AND DARKNESS.
  • 00:13:43.110 --> 00:13:45.020
  • BECAUSE OF THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:45.020 --> 00:13:46.220
  • WE ARE FREE,
  • 00:13:46.220 --> 00:13:47.290
  • WE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 00:13:47.290 --> 00:13:49.190
  • WE HAVE HEALING FROM SICKNESS
  • 00:13:49.190 --> 00:13:51.150
  • AND DISEASE.
  • 00:13:51.150 --> 00:13:52.260
  • THERE IS VICTORY OVER
  • 00:13:52.260 --> 00:13:54.120
  • THE WORLD, THE FLESH,
  • 00:13:54.120 --> 00:13:55.220
  • AND THE DEVIL.
  • 00:13:55.220 --> 00:13:56.240
  • THERE'S THE PROSPERITY
  • 00:13:56.240 --> 00:13:58.170
  • OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:13:58.170 --> 00:13:59.230
  • THE PEACE OF GOD THAT SURPASSES
  • 00:13:59.230 --> 00:14:02.070
  • UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:14:02.070 --> 00:14:03.170
  • HALLELUJAH FOR THE CROSS!
  • 00:14:03.170 --> 00:14:05.150
  • GIVE HIM PRAISE AND GLORY
  • 00:14:05.150 --> 00:14:07.030
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:14:07.030 --> 00:14:09.110
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:10.160 --> 00:14:13.160
  • CONCERNING FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:14:13.160 --> 00:14:15.090
  • WHATEVER IS DONE
  • 00:14:15.090 --> 00:14:16.120
  • WITH FIRST FRUITS DETERMINES
  • 00:14:16.120 --> 00:14:19.020
  • WHAT HAPPENS TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:14:19.020 --> 00:14:21.220
  • SO FOLLOW THIS;
  • 00:14:21.220 --> 00:14:23.070
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRSTBORN SON
  • 00:14:23.070 --> 00:14:24.250
  • OF ABRAHAM.
  • 00:14:24.250 --> 00:14:26.050
  • AS FIRSTBORN,
  • 00:14:26.050 --> 00:14:27.290
  • HE WAS TO BE REDEEMED
  • 00:14:27.290 --> 00:14:29.290
  • OR SACRIFICED.
  • 00:14:29.290 --> 00:14:31.220
  • WHEN ABRAHAM PUT ISAAC
  • 00:14:31.220 --> 00:14:32.270
  • ON THE ALTAR,
  • 00:14:32.270 --> 00:14:34.270
  • GOD SENT A RAM TIED BY THE
  • 00:14:34.270 --> 00:14:37.150
  • HORNS IN A THICKET TO REDEEM
  • 00:14:37.280 --> 00:14:40.280
  • ISAAC.
  • 00:14:40.280 --> 00:14:42.110
  • WHEN THE FIRST FRUITS WAS
  • 00:14:42.110 --> 00:14:43.160
  • GIVEN,
  • 00:14:43.160 --> 00:14:44.060
  • IT BRINGS A MIGHTY HARVEST.
  • 00:14:44.060 --> 00:14:46.000
  • FOLLOW THE HISTORY.
  • 00:14:46.000 --> 00:14:47.250
  • WHATEVER IS DONE WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:14:47.250 --> 00:14:49.110
  • PORTION DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:14:49.110 --> 00:14:51.240
  • TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:14:51.240 --> 00:14:53.130
  • WE GO TO CHURCH
  • 00:14:53.130 --> 00:14:54.100
  • ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:55.270
  • IT DETERMINES THE QUALITY
  • 00:14:55.270 --> 00:14:58.090
  • OF THE REST OF THE SIX DAYS.
  • 00:14:58.090 --> 00:15:00.270
  • YOU GIVE TO GOD YOUR TITHE
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:03.000
  • FIRST,
  • 00:15:03.000 --> 00:15:03.240
  • AND HE BLESSES WHAT IS LEFT.
  • 00:15:03.240 --> 00:15:06.140
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:15:06.140 --> 00:15:08.220
  • HE HAD TWO SONS,
  • 00:15:08.220 --> 00:15:10.020
  • JACOB AND ESAU.
  • 00:15:10.020 --> 00:15:11.190
  • JACOB HAD 12 SONS,
  • 00:15:11.190 --> 00:15:13.170
  • AND THEIR DESCENDANTS BECAME
  • 00:15:13.170 --> 00:15:15.090
  • THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:15:15.090 --> 00:15:17.150
  • GOD SENT JOSEPH INTO EGYPT
  • 00:15:17.150 --> 00:15:19.230
  • WHERE HE BECAME
  • 00:15:19.230 --> 00:15:20.150
  • THE PRIME MINISTER.
  • 00:15:20.150 --> 00:15:21.270
  • JOSEPH SENT FOR HIS FAMILY,
  • 00:15:21.270 --> 00:15:23.230
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO WERE 70
  • 00:15:23.230 --> 00:15:26.000
  • IN NUMBER.
  • 00:15:26.000 --> 00:15:27.040
  • AND THEY STAYED IN EGYPT
  • 00:15:27.040 --> 00:15:28.240
  • FOR 430 YEARS.
  • 00:15:28.240 --> 00:15:31.050
  • THEY BECAME A MIGHTY NATION
  • 00:15:31.050 --> 00:15:33.120
  • OF ALMOST TWO MILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:33.120 --> 00:15:35.190
  • EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE
  • 00:15:35.190 --> 00:15:36.200
  • PERSECUTED,
  • 00:15:36.200 --> 00:15:37.290
  • THEY PROSPERED AND THEY GREW.
  • 00:15:37.290 --> 00:15:40.100
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:40.100 --> 00:15:41.090
  • BECAUSE THE FIRST FRUIT,
  • 00:15:41.090 --> 00:15:43.000
  • ISAAC ON MOUNT MORIAH,
  • 00:15:43.000 --> 00:15:45.120
  • HAD BEEN GIVEN TO GOD.
  • 00:15:45.120 --> 00:15:47.040
  • AND WHAT YOU DO WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:15:47.040 --> 00:15:48.170
  • FRUIT DETERMINES THE GUARANTEE
  • 00:15:48.170 --> 00:15:51.080
  • OF EVERYTHING THAT COMES
  • 00:15:51.080 --> 00:15:52.150
  • AFTER IT!
  • 00:15:52.150 --> 00:15:53.090
  • THAT'S WHY THEY ARE BLESSED
  • 00:15:53.090 --> 00:15:55.000
  • AND ALWAYS WILL BE BLESSED,
  • 00:15:55.000 --> 00:15:57.060
  • BECAUSE GOD IS KEEPING
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:58.280
  • HIS COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM!
  • 00:15:58.280 --> 00:16:00.290
  • GIVE THE LORD A SHOUT OF PRAISE
  • 00:16:00.290 --> 00:16:02.270
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:16:02.270 --> 00:16:04.250
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:16:06.130 --> 00:16:09.130
  • NOW LET ME SHOW YOU HOW THAT
  • 00:16:09.130 --> 00:16:10.080
  • WORKS IN REVERSE.
  • 00:16:10.080 --> 00:16:11.250
  • IF YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD FIRST,
  • 00:16:11.250 --> 00:16:14.040
  • IT DOESN'T STOP
  • 00:16:14.040 --> 00:16:15.010
  • GOD FROM BEING FIRST;
  • 00:16:15.010 --> 00:16:17.190
  • IT ONLY RELEASES THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:16:17.190 --> 00:16:19.170
  • OF GOD UPON YOU.
  • 00:16:19.170 --> 00:16:21.150
  • IT RELEASES THE CURSE UPON
  • 00:16:21.150 --> 00:16:23.210
  • EVERYTHING YOU PUT YOUR HANDS
  • 00:16:23.210 --> 00:16:25.050
  • TO FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:16:25.050 --> 00:16:27.220
  • UNTIL YOU GET YOUR ACT
  • 00:16:27.220 --> 00:16:28.230
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:16:28.230 --> 00:16:30.010
  • THE ONLY WAY OUT IS REDEMPTION,
  • 00:16:30.010 --> 00:16:32.090
  • WHICH MEANS TO BUY BACK
  • 00:16:32.090 --> 00:16:34.040
  • FROM DESTRUCTION BY OBEYING
  • 00:16:34.040 --> 00:16:36.220
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:37.120 --> 00:16:40.120
  • WOW.
  • 00:16:40.120 --> 00:16:42.170
  • CONSIDER THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:16:42.170 --> 00:16:44.040
  • AND THE FALL OF JERICHO.
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:45.290
  • FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS
  • 00:16:45.290 --> 00:16:47.020
  • OF SLAVERY IN EGYPT WAS
  • 00:16:47.020 --> 00:16:48.120
  • FOLLOWED BY 40 YEARS OF HEAT
  • 00:16:49.000 --> 00:16:52.000
  • AND GRIT IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:16:52.000 --> 00:16:54.120
  • WITH JOSHUA AS THEIR LEADER,
  • 00:16:54.120 --> 00:16:56.140
  • GOD RELEASED A PLAN THAT WOULD
  • 00:16:56.140 --> 00:16:58.120
  • BEGIN THE CONQUEST
  • 00:16:58.120 --> 00:17:00.040
  • OF THE HOLY LAND.
  • 00:17:00.040 --> 00:17:01.210
  • THINK OF JERICHO
  • 00:17:01.210 --> 00:17:02.250
  • AS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:17:02.250 --> 00:17:04.010
  • JERICHO'S THE CITY.
  • 00:17:04.010 --> 00:17:06.120
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY
  • 00:17:06.120 --> 00:17:07.230
  • THAT STOOD BETWEEN ISRAEL
  • 00:17:07.230 --> 00:17:09.220
  • AND THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:17:09.220 --> 00:17:12.040
  • GOD MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE WAS
  • 00:17:12.040 --> 00:17:14.000
  • GIVING JERICHO TO THE JEWISH
  • 00:17:14.000 --> 00:17:16.170
  • PEOPLE AS A GIFT,
  • 00:17:16.170 --> 00:17:18.190
  • BECAUSE THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:17:18.190 --> 00:17:19.250
  • "I'M GOING TO FIGHT FOR YOU."
  • 00:17:19.250 --> 00:17:22.090
  • THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING
  • 00:17:22.090 --> 00:17:23.120
  • THAT WAS FORBIDDEN?
  • 00:17:23.120 --> 00:17:24.160
  • JOSHUA 6:18 AND 19,
  • 00:17:24.160 --> 00:17:27.000
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:17:27.000 --> 00:17:27.210
  • "THE GOLD AND THE SILVER
  • 00:17:27.210 --> 00:17:29.120
  • OF JERICHO BELONG TO ME.
  • 00:17:29.170 --> 00:17:32.170
  • AND YOU, BY ALL MEANS,
  • 00:17:32.170 --> 00:17:34.080
  • ABSTAIN FROM THE ACCURSED THING,
  • 00:17:34.080 --> 00:17:36.170
  • LEST YOU BECOME ACCURSED WHEN
  • 00:17:36.170 --> 00:17:38.280
  • YOU TAKE THE ACCURSED THING AND
  • 00:17:38.280 --> 00:17:40.170
  • MAKE THE CAMP OF ISRAEL A CURSE
  • 00:17:40.170 --> 00:17:43.080
  • AND A PLACE OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:17:43.140 --> 00:17:46.140
  • BUT ALL THE GOLD,
  • 00:17:46.140 --> 00:17:47.240
  • AND ALL THE SILVER,
  • 00:17:47.240 --> 00:17:49.100
  • AND ALL THE VESSELS OF IRON,
  • 00:17:49.100 --> 00:17:51.140
  • ARE CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:17:51.140 --> 00:17:53.160
  • THEY SHALL COME INTO
  • 00:17:53.160 --> 00:17:54.230
  • THE TREASURY OF THE LORD."
  • 00:17:54.230 --> 00:17:57.080
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:17:57.080 --> 00:17:58.110
  • BECAUSE ISRAEL FULLY UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:17:58.110 --> 00:18:00.080
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:18:00.080 --> 00:18:01.200
  • THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:18:01.200 --> 00:18:03.100
  • IN JERICHO BELONGED
  • 00:18:03.100 --> 00:18:04.260
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:18:04.260 --> 00:18:05.240
  • KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF IT,
  • 00:18:05.240 --> 00:18:07.030
  • BECAUSE GOD WAS GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:18:07.030 --> 00:18:08.150
  • YOU EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WOULD
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:09.240
  • COME AFTER IT.
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:10.240
  • EVERYBODY GOT THE MESSAGE
  • 00:18:10.240 --> 00:18:12.270
  • BUT ONE GUY, ACHAN,
  • 00:18:13.200 --> 00:18:16.200
  • BECAUSE HE WAS THE SMART ALECK
  • 00:18:16.200 --> 00:18:18.290
  • WHO KNEW BETTER.
  • 00:18:18.290 --> 00:18:20.140
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE RELATIVES
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:21.190
  • THAT ALWAYS KNOW BETTER?
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:24.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:24.100 --> 00:18:24.290
  • THEY ALWAYS HAVE THE BETTER
  • 00:18:24.290 --> 00:18:26.020
  • IDEA,
  • 00:18:26.020 --> 00:18:27.020
  • AND IT ALWAYS TURNS OUT
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:28.100
  • TO BE A DISASTER.
  • 00:18:28.100 --> 00:18:30.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:30.070 --> 00:18:30.260
  • THE BATTLE OF AI,
  • 00:18:30.260 --> 00:18:31.220
  • ISRAEL'S ARMY WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:18:32.030 --> 00:18:35.030
  • JOSHUA INQUIRED OF THE LORD,
  • 00:18:35.030 --> 00:18:36.260
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:18:36.260 --> 00:18:37.130
  • "GET UP;
  • 00:18:37.130 --> 00:18:37.290
  • THERE'S SIN IN THE CAMP."
  • 00:18:37.290 --> 00:18:39.140
  • AND THEY WENT TENT BY TENT
  • 00:18:39.140 --> 00:18:41.080
  • SEARCHING.
  • 00:18:41.080 --> 00:18:42.080
  • THEY SEARCHED 11 TRIBES.
  • 00:18:42.080 --> 00:18:44.240
  • AND THEY REACHED ACHAN'S TRIBE.
  • 00:18:44.240 --> 00:18:47.060
  • THE TRIBE OF JUDAH WAS LAST.
  • 00:18:47.060 --> 00:18:49.050
  • AND THEY CAME TO HIS TENT,
  • 00:18:49.050 --> 00:18:50.220
  • AND JOSHUA COMMANDED ACHAN
  • 00:18:50.220 --> 00:18:52.160
  • IN JOSHUA 7:19,
  • 00:18:52.160 --> 00:18:54.150
  • "GIVE GOD THE GLORY."
  • 00:18:54.150 --> 00:18:56.080
  • THAT MEANS THE THINGS
  • 00:18:56.080 --> 00:18:57.080
  • YOU'VE STOLEN,
  • 00:18:57.080 --> 00:18:58.170
  • GIVE THEM BACK.
  • 00:18:58.170 --> 00:18:59.280
  • ACHAN HAD STOLEN THE GLORY
  • 00:18:59.280 --> 00:19:01.140
  • OF GOD BECAUSE HE TOOK
  • 00:19:01.140 --> 00:19:02.170
  • THE THINGS THAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:19:02.170 --> 00:19:04.230
  • THE RESULT WAS THAT ACHAN,
  • 00:19:04.240 --> 00:19:07.240
  • HIS WIFE,
  • 00:19:07.240 --> 00:19:09.050
  • HIS SONS,
  • 00:19:09.050 --> 00:19:09.260
  • HIS DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:19:09.260 --> 00:19:10.180
  • HIS LIVESTOCK,
  • 00:19:10.180 --> 00:19:11.270
  • WERE STONED TO DEATH
  • 00:19:11.270 --> 00:19:13.030
  • BY ALL OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:19:13.030 --> 00:19:14.260
  • AND THEY STACKED THEIR BODIES
  • 00:19:14.260 --> 00:19:16.100
  • IN A PILE AND BURNED THEM WITH
  • 00:19:16.100 --> 00:19:18.010
  • FIRE TO PURGE ISRAEL OF THE SIN
  • 00:19:18.090 --> 00:19:21.090
  • OF TAKING WHAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:19:21.090 --> 00:19:23.290
  • THINK ABOUT THIS STORY.
  • 00:19:23.290 --> 00:19:25.110
  • BECAUSE OF ONE MAN'S
  • 00:19:25.110 --> 00:19:26.200
  • DISOBEDIENCE,
  • 00:19:26.200 --> 00:19:27.240
  • THE ENTIRE NATION SUFFERED
  • 00:19:27.240 --> 00:19:29.290
  • THE CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:19:29.290 --> 00:19:31.160
  • THEY HAD TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:19:31.160 --> 00:19:32.280
  • THE ACHAN FACTOR.
  • 00:19:32.280 --> 00:19:35.160
  • ARE YOU TAKING WHAT BELONGS
  • 00:19:35.160 --> 00:19:36.250
  • TO THE LORD?
  • 00:19:36.250 --> 00:19:38.130
  • IS YOUR FAMILY OR YOUR CHILDREN?
  • 00:19:38.130 --> 00:19:40.180
  • WILL GENERATIONS AFTER YOU
  • 00:19:40.180 --> 00:19:42.180
  • SUFFER BECAUSE OF YOUR REFUSAL
  • 00:19:42.180 --> 00:19:45.010
  • TO OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:19:45.010 --> 00:19:46.010
  • OF FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:19:46.010 --> 00:19:47.210
  • IF THE CHURCH IS ONE BODY
  • 00:19:47.210 --> 00:19:49.080
  • FITLY JOINED TOGETHER,
  • 00:19:49.080 --> 00:19:51.030
  • THEN YOUR DISOBEDIENCE AFFECTS
  • 00:19:51.030 --> 00:19:52.220
  • THE WHOLE BODY.
  • 00:19:52.220 --> 00:19:53.230
  • IF ONE MAN AFFECTED TWO MILLION
  • 00:19:53.230 --> 00:19:55.150
  • PEOPLE IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:56.230
  • CERTAINLY ONE MAN
  • 00:19:56.230 --> 00:19:57.230
  • CAN AFFECT 22.000 HERE
  • 00:19:57.230 --> 00:19:59.200
  • AT CORNERSTONE CHURCH.
  • 00:19:59.200 --> 00:20:01.280
  • THIS EXPLAINS WHY SOME CHURCHES
  • 00:20:01.280 --> 00:20:03.220
  • DO NOT FINANCIALLY PROSPER.
  • 00:20:03.220 --> 00:20:05.280
  • WHEN ISRAEL WAS IN THE DESERT,
  • 00:20:05.280 --> 00:20:07.090
  • ALL THEY HAD WAS MANNA.
  • 00:20:07.090 --> 00:20:08.280
  • NONE OF THEIR CLOTHES WORE OUT.
  • 00:20:08.280 --> 00:20:10.160
  • THEY WERE NOT SICK NOR FEEBLE,
  • 00:20:10.160 --> 00:20:12.070
  • NO ONE, FOR 40 YEARS.
  • 00:20:12.100 --> 00:20:15.100
  • GOD'S ABUNDANCE WILL BE
  • 00:20:15.100 --> 00:20:17.030
  • WITHHELD FROM THE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:20:17.030 --> 00:20:19.260
  • REFUSE TO HONOR HIM AS FIRST.
  • 00:20:20.070 --> 00:20:23.070
  • THE SPIRIT OF ACHAN TAKES WHAT
  • 00:20:23.070 --> 00:20:24.250
  • BELONGS TO GOD AND KEEPS IT
  • 00:20:24.250 --> 00:20:27.010
  • FOR HIMSELF AT THE EXPENSE
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:29.170
  • OF OTHERS.
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:31.050
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:20:31.050 --> 00:20:32.070
  • AND TITHING.
  • 00:20:32.070 --> 00:20:33.000
  • TITHING IS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:33.000 --> 00:20:34.220
  • LET'S REVIEW WHAT WE'VE
  • 00:20:34.220 --> 00:20:35.200
  • LEARNED.
  • 00:20:35.200 --> 00:20:36.220
  • THE FIRST FRUITS INCLUDE
  • 00:20:36.220 --> 00:20:37.260
  • CHILDREN, ANIMALS, CROPS,
  • 00:20:37.260 --> 00:20:40.050
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:20:40.050 --> 00:20:41.270
  • GOD SIMPLY SAYS,
  • 00:20:41.270 --> 00:20:42.290
  • I WANT TO BE THE FIRST
  • 00:20:42.290 --> 00:20:44.020
  • OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:20:44.020 --> 00:20:45.060
  • WHEN GOD DESTROYED JERICHO,
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:46.270
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY CONQUERED
  • 00:20:46.270 --> 00:20:48.210
  • ON THE WAY
  • 00:20:48.210 --> 00:20:49.070
  • TO THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:50.120
  • IT WAS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:50.120 --> 00:20:51.180
  • AND GOD SAYS, IT'S MINE.
  • 00:20:51.180 --> 00:20:53.240
  • YOUR INCOME IS EITHER
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:55.100
  • CONSECRATED OR CURSED.
  • 00:20:55.100 --> 00:20:58.030
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:20:58.030 --> 00:20:59.010
  • IT'S EITHER CONSECRATED
  • 00:20:59.010 --> 00:21:00.150
  • OR CURSED.
  • 00:21:00.150 --> 00:21:01.060
  • THE TITHE, IN THE SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:21:01.060 --> 00:21:02.290
  • IS CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:21:02.290 --> 00:21:04.260
  • IF YOU KEEP IT FOR YOURSELF,
  • 00:21:04.260 --> 00:21:06.240
  • IT BECOMES A --
  • 00:21:06.240 --> 00:21:08.150
  • [Curse.]
  • 00:21:08.150 --> 00:21:09.080
  • -- CURSE,
  • 00:21:09.080 --> 00:21:10.230
  • BECAUSE IT'S STOLEN FROM GOD.
  • 00:21:10.230 --> 00:21:13.210
  • GOD MAKES THAT CLEAR
  • 00:21:13.210 --> 00:21:14.270
  • IN MALACHI 3:8 AND 9.
  • 00:21:14.270 --> 00:21:17.110
  • "WILL A MAN ROB GOD?
  • 00:21:17.110 --> 00:21:18.130
  • YOU'VE ROBBED ME.
  • 00:21:18.130 --> 00:21:20.010
  • HOW DID WE ROB YOU?"
  • 00:21:20.010 --> 00:21:21.160
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:21:21.160 --> 00:21:22.040
  • "YOU HAVE STOLEN THE TITHE
  • 00:21:22.040 --> 00:21:24.230
  • AND THE OFFERING FROM ME.
  • 00:21:24.230 --> 00:21:26.040
  • YOU ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE;
  • 00:21:26.040 --> 00:21:27.200
  • FOR YOU HAVE ROBBED ME."
  • 00:21:28.060 --> 00:21:31.060
  • THE TITHE IS A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:32.090 --> 00:21:35.090
  • IT'S NOT A DEBT WE OWE;
  • 00:21:35.090 --> 00:21:36.200
  • IT'S A SEED WE SOW.
  • 00:21:36.200 --> 00:21:39.040
  • WHEREVER THERE IS THE NUMBER
  • 00:21:39.040 --> 00:21:40.060
  • OF TEN INVOLVED,
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:41.250
  • THERE'S A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:41.250 --> 00:21:43.290
  • THE PLAGUES WERE USED TO SET
  • 00:21:43.290 --> 00:21:45.120
  • ISRAEL FREE FROM PHARAOH,
  • 00:21:45.120 --> 00:21:47.050
  • TEN PLAGUES.
  • 00:21:47.050 --> 00:21:48.120
  • TEN COMMANDMENTS WERE GIVEN
  • 00:21:48.120 --> 00:21:49.260
  • TO SET THE WORLD FREE
  • 00:21:49.260 --> 00:21:51.220
  • FROM THE TYRANNY OF EVIL.
  • 00:21:51.220 --> 00:21:53.230
  • TEN DONKEYS WERE SENT BY JOSEPH
  • 00:21:53.230 --> 00:21:55.240
  • TO BRING JACOB AND ALL OF
  • 00:21:55.240 --> 00:21:57.260
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY
  • 00:21:57.260 --> 00:21:59.280
  • TO THE LANDS OF EGYPT.
  • 00:21:59.280 --> 00:22:01.240
  • THE TENTH PART OF YOUR INCREASE
  • 00:22:01.240 --> 00:22:03.250
  • IS THE REDEMPTION
  • 00:22:03.250 --> 00:22:04.200
  • OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:22:04.200 --> 00:22:05.230
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GIVE 10%
  • 00:22:05.290 --> 00:22:08.290
  • OF YOUR INCOME
  • 00:22:08.290 --> 00:22:10.040
  • AND NOT GIVE THE FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:22:10.040 --> 00:22:12.050
  • THAT'S A QUESTION.
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:13.020
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:13.020 --> 00:22:14.270
  • LET'S PRETEND FOR JUST A MOMENT
  • 00:22:14.270 --> 00:22:16.170
  • THAT EACH ONE OF THESE ONE
  • 00:22:16.170 --> 00:22:18.260
  • DOLLAR BILLS IS A HUNDRED
  • 00:22:18.260 --> 00:22:21.020
  • DOLLAR BILL.
  • 00:22:21.020 --> 00:22:21.240
  • THIS IS A LOW BUCKET
  • 00:22:21.240 --> 00:22:23.100
  • ILLUSTRATION HERE.
  • 00:22:23.100 --> 00:22:24.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:24.280 --> 00:22:25.120
  • THE QUESTION IS;
  • 00:22:25.120 --> 00:22:26.130
  • CAN YOU GIVE GOD A TENTH
  • 00:22:26.130 --> 00:22:27.180
  • AND NOT PAY TITHE?
  • 00:22:27.180 --> 00:22:28.210
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:28.210 --> 00:22:31.060
  • IF YOU SIT DOWN TO PAY
  • 00:22:31.060 --> 00:22:32.090
  • YOUR BILLS,
  • 00:22:32.090 --> 00:22:33.010
  • AND YOU DO YOUR HOUSE NOTE,
  • 00:22:33.010 --> 00:22:35.090
  • YOUR CAR NOTE,
  • 00:22:35.090 --> 00:22:36.060
  • YOUR TWO CAR NOTES,

  • TO HIM.
  • 00:22:50.180 --> 00:22:51.030
  • AND IF HE WANTED,
  • 00:22:51.030 --> 00:22:51.240
  • HE'D GET IT ALL.
  • 00:22:51.240 --> 00:22:54.010
  • WHAT HE WANTS IS THIS ONE.
  • 00:22:54.010 --> 00:22:56.220
  • THIS IS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:22:56.220 --> 00:22:59.060
  • WHEN HE GETS THIS ONE,
  • 00:22:59.060 --> 00:23:00.190
  • ALL OF THESE ARE CONSECRATED.
