  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: THE LAW
  • 00:00:12.050 --> 00:00:15.050
  • OF FIRST FRUITS IS A GIANT STEP
  • 00:00:15.050 --> 00:00:17.140
  • IN CLIMBING THE STAIRWAY
  • 00:00:17.140 --> 00:00:18.250
  • TO THE STARS OF SUCCESS
  • 00:00:18.250 --> 00:00:21.000
  • AND PERSONAL PROSPERITY.
  • 00:00:21.000 --> 00:00:23.120
  • WHEN YOU OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:00:23.120 --> 00:00:24.250
  • OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:00:24.250 --> 00:00:26.030
  • GOD'S PROMISE THAT HE WILL
  • 00:00:26.030 --> 00:00:28.110
  • POUR OUT HIS PROSPERITY
  • 00:00:28.110 --> 00:00:30.290
  • EXCEEDINGLY,
  • 00:00:30.290 --> 00:00:31.250
  • ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:00:31.250 --> 00:00:32.230
  • ABOVE WHAT YOU CAN ASK
  • 00:00:32.230 --> 00:00:34.000
  • OR IMAGINE.
  • 00:00:34.000 --> 00:00:35.190
  • IF YOU IGNORE THE LAW
  • 00:00:35.190 --> 00:00:37.080
  • OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:00:37.080 --> 00:00:39.080
  • GOD SAYS YOUR LACK
  • 00:00:39.080 --> 00:00:40.260
  • WILL NEVER END.
  • 00:00:40.260 --> 00:00:42.140
  • IT WILL AFFECT YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:00:42.140 --> 00:00:44.030
  • IT WILL AFFECT YOUR BUSINESS
  • 00:00:44.030 --> 00:00:45.280
  • FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.
  • 00:00:45.280 --> 00:00:48.100
  • TODAY I'M GOING TO OPEN
  • 00:00:48.100 --> 00:00:49.190
  • THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:00:49.190 --> 00:00:51.130
  • THE GREATEST FINANCIAL MANUAL
  • 00:00:51.130 --> 00:00:53.120
  • THAT YOU'VE EVER READ
  • 00:00:53.120 --> 00:00:54.120
  • IN ALL OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:00:54.120 --> 00:00:56.040
  • AND GIVE DIVINE EVIDENCE
  • 00:00:56.040 --> 00:00:58.080
  • TO CONFIRM THIS POWERFUL BIBLE
  • 00:00:58.080 --> 00:01:01.080
  • TEACHING TO DETERMINE
  • 00:01:01.080 --> 00:01:04.050
  • THE QUALITY OF YOUR PROSPERITY
  • 00:01:04.050 --> 00:01:06.140
  • IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:01:06.140 --> 00:01:07.240
  • LET'S READ EXODUS 34:22
  • 00:01:07.240 --> 00:01:10.240
  • AND FOLLOWING.
  • 00:01:10.240 --> 00:01:11.130
  • READY?
  • 00:01:11.130 --> 00:01:12.120
  • "AND YOU SHALL OBSERVE
  • 00:01:12.120 --> 00:01:13.130
  • THE FEAST OF WEEKS OF THE

  • FIRST FRUITS OF WHEAT HARVEST
  • 00:01:15.050 --> 00:01:17.060
  • AND THE FEAST OF INGATHERING
  • 00:01:17.060 --> 00:01:19.090
  • AT THE YEAR'S END.
  • 00:01:19.090 --> 00:01:21.000
  • THREE TIMES IN THE YEAR,
  • 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:22.270
  • ALL YOUR MEN SHALL APPEAR
  • 00:01:22.270 --> 00:01:24.200
  • BEFORE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:01:24.200 --> 00:01:27.200
  • FOR I WILL CAST OUT THE NATIONS
  • 00:01:27.200 --> 00:01:29.160
  • BEFORE YOU,
  • 00:01:29.160 --> 00:01:30.250
  • AND ENLARGE YOUR BORDERS.
  • 00:01:30.250 --> 00:01:33.010
  • NEITHER WILL ANY MAN COVET

  • WHEN YOU GO UP TO APPEAR BEFORE

  • THE LORD YOUR GOD THREE TIMES
  • 00:01:37.280 --> 00:01:40.040
  • IN THE YEAR.
  • 00:01:40.040 --> 00:01:41.140
  • YOU SHALL NOT OFFER THE BLOOD
  • 00:01:41.140 --> 00:01:43.150
  • OF MY SACRIFICE WITH LEAVEN,
  • 00:01:43.150 --> 00:01:45.250
  • NOR SHALL THE SACRIFICE
  • 00:01:45.250 --> 00:01:47.070
  • OF THE FEAST OF PASSOVER BE LEFT
  • 00:01:47.070 --> 00:01:49.190
  • UNTIL MORNING.
  • 00:01:49.190 --> 00:01:51.030
  • THE FIRST OF THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:01:51.030 --> 00:01:53.000
  • OF YOUR LAND,
  • 00:01:53.000 --> 00:01:53.290
  • YOU SHALL BRING TO THE HOUSE
  • 00:01:53.290 --> 00:01:56.120
  • OF THE LORD YOUR GOD."
  • 00:01:56.120 --> 00:01:58.140
  • FATHER GOD,
  • 00:01:58.140 --> 00:01:59.130
  • THANK YOU FOR THE WORD
  • 00:01:59.130 --> 00:02:02.100
  • THAT IS A LIGHT UNTO OUR FEET
  • 00:02:02.100 --> 00:02:05.040
  • AND A LIGHT UNTO OUR PATHWAY.
  • 00:02:05.040 --> 00:02:08.010
  • LET US HEAR IT.
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:10.060
  • LET US EXPERIENCE IT.
  • 00:02:10.060 --> 00:02:12.200
  • LET US PRACTICE IT.
  • 00:02:12.200 --> 00:02:14.200
  • FOR IT IS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:02:14.200 --> 00:02:16.220
  • FOR THIS CONGREGATION
  • 00:02:16.220 --> 00:02:18.280
  • AND FOR RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE
  • 00:02:18.280 --> 00:02:21.050
  • WHO DESIRE TO LIVE
  • 00:02:21.050 --> 00:02:22.120
  • ON THE ECONOMY OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:02:22.120 --> 00:02:24.130
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:02:24.130 --> 00:02:26.160
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:02:26.160 --> 00:02:28.010
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:02:28.010 --> 00:02:29.090
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:02:29.090 --> 00:02:30.070
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:02:30.070 --> 00:02:31.250
  • LET'S BEGIN WITH THE BASICS
  • 00:02:31.250 --> 00:02:34.010
  • THAT GOD DEMANDS TO BE FIRST.
  • 00:02:35.200 --> 00:02:38.200
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:02:38.200 --> 00:02:39.160
  • "SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM
  • 00:02:39.160 --> 00:02:40.180
  • OF GOD
  • 00:02:40.180 --> 00:02:42.120
  • AND ALL OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:02:42.120 --> 00:02:44.260
  • AND ALL OF THESE THINGS SHALL
  • 00:02:44.260 --> 00:02:46.200
  • BE ADDED UNTO YOU."
  • 00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:48.210
  • HEAR THAT ONE PHRASE,
  • 00:02:48.210 --> 00:02:50.200
  • "ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:02:50.200 --> 00:02:53.170
  • SHALL BE ADDED,"
  • 00:02:53.170 --> 00:02:54.270
  • BECAUSE YOU SEEK FIRST
  • 00:02:54.270 --> 00:02:56.290
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:02:56.290 --> 00:02:58.010
  • WHY DO WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY?
  • 00:02:58.010 --> 00:03:00.100
  • WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:01.110
  • BECAUSE JESUS ROSE
  • 00:03:01.110 --> 00:03:02.150
  • FROM THE DEAD ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:04.090
  • SUNDAY IS THE FIRST DAY
  • 00:03:04.090 --> 00:03:05.180
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:05.180 --> 00:03:06.220
  • IT IS THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:03:06.220 --> 00:03:08.170
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:09.260
  • LISTEN.
  • 00:03:09.260 --> 00:03:11.000
  • YOUR SUCCESS FOR THE WEEK
  • 00:03:11.000 --> 00:03:13.110
  • BEGINS ON SUNDAY BY HONORING
  • 00:03:13.270 --> 00:03:16.270
  • THE LORD AS THE LORD
  • 00:03:16.270 --> 00:03:18.040
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:18.040 --> 00:03:19.170
  • THE FIRST FRUIT SANCTIFIES
  • 00:03:20.130 --> 00:03:23.130
  • THE FOLLOWING FRUIT.
  • 00:03:23.130 --> 00:03:25.030
  • PUTTING GOD FIRST IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:03:25.030 --> 00:03:27.110
  • ESTABLISHES HIS LORDSHIP.
  • 00:03:27.110 --> 00:03:30.000
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:03:30.000 --> 00:03:31.210
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:03:31.210 --> 00:03:33.110
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD,
  • 00:03:33.110 --> 00:03:34.230
  • THERE IS NO BLESSING,
  • 00:03:34.230 --> 00:03:36.060
  • THERE IS NO FAVOR,
  • 00:03:36.060 --> 00:03:37.200
  • THERE IS NO PROSPERITY;
  • 00:03:37.200 --> 00:03:39.190
  • AND YOU LIVE,
  • 00:03:39.190 --> 00:03:41.040
  • ACCORDING TO MALACHI,
  • 00:03:41.040 --> 00:03:42.140
  • UNDER A CURSE.
  • 00:03:42.140 --> 00:03:44.070
  • C.S. LEWIS SAYS,
  • 00:03:44.070 --> 00:03:45.100
  • "WHEN FIRST THINGS ARE PUT
  • 00:03:45.100 --> 00:03:46.180
  • FIRST,
  • 00:03:46.180 --> 00:03:47.200
  • SECOND THINGS BEGIN
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:49.130
  • TO INCREASE."
  • 00:03:49.130 --> 00:03:50.250
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:51.140
  • TO BE FIRST?
  • 00:03:51.140 --> 00:03:52.240
  • FIRST IS PRECEDING ALL OTHERS
  • 00:03:52.240 --> 00:03:55.170
  • IN TIME IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE.
  • 00:03:57.000 --> 00:04:00.020
  • IF YOU GO OUT AND RUN A RACE
  • 00:04:00.020 --> 00:04:02.020
  • BY YOURSELF,
  • 00:04:02.020 --> 00:04:03.200
  • YOU COME IN FIRST,
  • 00:04:03.200 --> 00:04:05.230
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS NOBODY ELSE
  • 00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:07.040
  • RUNNING AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:09.090
  • SO IF YOU REALLY ARE
  • 00:04:09.090 --> 00:04:10.100
  • NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:11.100
  • THERE HAS TO BE A SEQUENCE
  • 00:04:11.100 --> 00:04:12.250
  • OF SOMEBODY BEHIND YOU
  • 00:04:12.250 --> 00:04:15.080
  • BEFORE YOU CAN MAKE
  • 00:04:15.080 --> 00:04:16.080
  • THAT DECLARATION.
  • 00:04:16.080 --> 00:04:17.260
  • FIRST DOES NOT MEAN NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:04:17.260 --> 00:04:19.240
  • IT DOES NOT MEAN THE ONLY ONE.
  • 00:04:19.240 --> 00:04:22.130
  • NOTHING CAN BE FIRST UNLESS
  • 00:04:22.130 --> 00:04:24.090
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE TO BE
  • 00:04:24.090 --> 00:04:26.060
  • FIRST OF.
  • 00:04:26.060 --> 00:04:27.260
  • FIRST FRUITS IS THE OFFERING
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:30.000
  • OF THE FIRST GRAIN HARVESTED
  • 00:04:30.000 --> 00:04:31.190
  • IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:31.190 --> 00:04:33.040
  • IF YOU DID NOT BRING YOUR FIRST
  • 00:04:33.040 --> 00:04:34.190
  • FRUITS TO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:04:34.200 --> 00:04:37.200
  • GOD INSTRUCTED ISRAEL THAT
  • 00:04:37.200 --> 00:04:40.120
  • THERE WOULD BE NO ADDITIONAL
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:42.010
  • FRUIT FOR THE HARVEST;
  • 00:04:42.010 --> 00:04:44.060
  • THEREFORE,
  • 00:04:44.060 --> 00:04:46.170
  • WHENEVER YOU AS A FARMER,
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:48.250
  • IN THE TIME OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:04:48.250 --> 00:04:50.270
  • DID NOT HAVE THE BLESSINGS
  • 00:04:50.270 --> 00:04:51.290
  • OF GOD BECAUSE YOU REFUSED
  • 00:04:51.290 --> 00:04:54.250
  • TO BRING THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:04:54.250 --> 00:04:55.290
  • TO THE HOUSE OF GOD,
  • 00:04:55.290 --> 00:04:57.220
  • YOU WERE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:04:57.220 --> 00:04:59.210
  • GOD IS THE LORD OF ALL
  • 00:04:59.210 --> 00:05:01.060
  • OR HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:05:01.060 --> 00:05:03.130
  • GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:05:03.130 --> 00:05:04.260
  • AND PLACED THEM IN THE PARADISE
  • 00:05:04.260 --> 00:05:06.240
  • OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
  • 00:05:06.240 --> 00:05:08.170
  • ADAM WENT TO SLEEP
  • 00:05:08.170 --> 00:05:10.130
  • AND HE WOKE UP MARRIED.
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:12.110
  • IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE AN INSOMNIAC
  • 00:05:12.110 --> 00:05:13.210
  • OUT OF YOU.
  • 00:05:13.210 --> 00:05:15.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:15.120 --> 00:05:16.000
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO WORK
  • 00:05:16.000 --> 00:05:16.250
  • 60 HOURS A WEEK TO GAIN.
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:19.270
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO FIGHT
  • 00:05:19.270 --> 00:05:21.230
  • THE TRAFFIC GOING TO WORK
  • 00:05:21.230 --> 00:05:23.210
  • AND FROM WORK,
  • 00:05:23.210 --> 00:05:25.050
  • THE SMOG,
  • 00:05:25.050 --> 00:05:25.290
  • THE IRS,
  • 00:05:25.290 --> 00:05:27.090
  • AND THE INCESSANT RINGING
  • 00:05:27.090 --> 00:05:29.250
  • OF A CELL PHONE.
  • 00:05:29.250 --> 00:05:31.180
  • I'VE OFTEN SAID,
  • 00:05:31.180 --> 00:05:32.130
  • "IF I WAKE UP IN ETERNITY
  • 00:05:32.130 --> 00:05:33.240
  • AND HEAR A PHONE RING,
  • 00:05:33.240 --> 00:05:35.030
  • I KNOW I DIED AND WENT TO HELL."
  • 00:05:35.030 --> 00:05:38.030
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:38.030 --> 00:05:38.260
  • GOD GAVE ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:05:38.260 --> 00:05:40.090
  • ONE COMMAND,
  • 00:05:40.090 --> 00:05:41.200
  • "LEAVE THE FRUIT ON THE TREE
  • 00:05:41.200 --> 00:05:43.190
  • OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD
  • 00:05:43.190 --> 00:05:44.170
  • AND EVIL ALONE;
  • 00:05:44.170 --> 00:05:46.030
  • IT IS FORBIDDEN FRUIT."
  • 00:05:46.030 --> 00:05:48.120
  • DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
  • 00:05:48.120 --> 00:05:51.030
  • WHY DID GOD CREATE THAT TREE?
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:53.130
  • THE ANSWER IS TO SEE IF ADAM
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:55.150
  • AND EVE WOULD PUT HIM FIRST
  • 00:05:55.150 --> 00:05:57.120
  • WHENEVER SATAN CAME
  • 00:05:57.120 --> 00:05:58.140
  • TO TEMPT THEM,
  • 00:05:58.140 --> 00:05:59.220
  • BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT TEMPTATION
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:01.060
  • WAS COMING.
  • 00:06:01.060 --> 00:06:03.000
  • GOD WANTED TO SEE IF THEY WOULD
  • 00:06:03.000 --> 00:06:04.170
  • PUT THE THEIR WILL
  • 00:06:04.170 --> 00:06:06.100
  • ABOVE HIS WILL.
  • 00:06:06.100 --> 00:06:08.130
  • GET THAT PHRASE.
  • 00:06:08.130 --> 00:06:10.130
  • WHEN YOUR DESIRES,
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:12.060
  • YOUR PLANS,
  • 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:13.160
  • YOUR IDEAS,
  • 00:06:13.160 --> 00:06:15.060
  • BECOME MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU
  • 00:06:15.060 --> 00:06:16.250
  • THAN GOD'S PLAN,
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:18.210
  • YOU HAVE ADOPTED THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:06:18.210 --> 00:06:20.120
  • OF LUCIFER.
  • 00:06:20.120 --> 00:06:22.130
  • LUCIFER CHALLENGED GOD.
  • 00:06:22.140 --> 00:06:25.140
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:06:25.140 --> 00:06:26.240
  • "I WILL ASCEND TO THE HILL
  • 00:06:26.240 --> 00:06:28.020
  • OF GOD, I WILL BE LIKE GOD,
  • 00:06:28.020 --> 00:06:29.290
  • I WILL, I WILL, I WILL..."
  • 00:06:29.290 --> 00:06:32.060
  • THOSE FIVE "I WILL'S"
  • 00:06:32.060 --> 00:06:33.150
  • ARE IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH.
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:35.140
  • THE FACT IS YOU CAN HAVE
  • 00:06:35.140 --> 00:06:36.250
  • THE ATTITUDE OF LUCIFER
  • 00:06:36.250 --> 00:06:38.160
  • AND CONFESS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:06:38.270 --> 00:06:41.270
  • WHEN YOUR WILL BECOMES GREATER
  • 00:06:41.270 --> 00:06:44.170
  • THAN GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:06:44.170 --> 00:06:46.010
  • YOU HAVE AN IDOLATRY PROBLEM.
  • 00:06:46.010 --> 00:06:48.140
  • WHEN JESUS AND THE 12 DISCIPLES
  • 00:06:48.140 --> 00:06:50.210
  • WERE REJECTED
  • 00:06:50.210 --> 00:06:51.150
  • BY THE SAMARITANS,
  • 00:06:51.150 --> 00:06:53.040
  • JAMES AND JOHN CAME TO JESUS
  • 00:06:54.070 --> 00:06:57.070
  • AND ASKED PERMISSION FROM JESUS
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:58.250
  • TO CALL FIRE DOWN ON THOSE
  • 00:06:58.250 --> 00:07:01.210
  • PEOPLE THAT WOULDN'T
  • 00:07:01.210 --> 00:07:02.170
  • ACCEPT THEM.
  • 00:07:02.170 --> 00:07:03.280
  • BURN THEM UP!
  • 00:07:03.280 --> 00:07:06.050
  • JESUS LOOKED AT THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:07:06.050 --> 00:07:08.200
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:09.120
  • ASKING.
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:11.060
  • "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT MANNER
  • 00:07:11.060 --> 00:07:12.120
  • OF SPIRIT YOU'RE OF,"
  • 00:07:12.120 --> 00:07:13.210
  • LUKE 9:55.
  • 00:07:13.210 --> 00:07:16.100
  • SAINT PETER HAD LUCIFER'S
  • 00:07:16.100 --> 00:07:17.140
  • ATTITUDE.
  • 00:07:17.140 --> 00:07:18.030
  • PETER SAID TO JESUS,
  • 00:07:18.030 --> 00:07:19.150
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:19.150 --> 00:07:20.090
  • TO THE CROSS."
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:21.260
  • WHEN THE ROMAN SOLDIERS
  • 00:07:21.260 --> 00:07:23.050
  • IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
  • 00:07:23.050 --> 00:07:25.200
  • THREATENED TO TAKE HIM,
  • 00:07:25.200 --> 00:07:27.160
  • PETER SAID,
  • 00:07:27.160 --> 00:07:28.030
  • "WE'LL TAKE UP SWORDS
  • 00:07:28.030 --> 00:07:29.060
  • AND WE'LL DEFEND YOU."
  • 00:07:29.060 --> 00:07:31.110
  • JESUS LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:07:31.110 --> 00:07:32.200
  • "GET BEHIND ME SATAN."
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:34.050
  • WHY?
  • 00:07:34.050 --> 00:07:35.100
  • BECAUSE THE WHOLE PURPOSE
  • 00:07:35.100 --> 00:07:36.180
  • FOR CHRIST COMING INTO THE EARTH
  • 00:07:36.180 --> 00:07:39.070
  • WAS TO DIE ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:07:39.070 --> 00:07:41.140
  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION SAYS,
  • 00:07:41.140 --> 00:07:42.260
  • "FROM THE FOUNDATIONS
  • 00:07:42.260 --> 00:07:43.290
  • OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:07:43.290 --> 00:07:45.010
  • HE WAS PREDESTINED TO DIE AS
  • 00:07:45.100 --> 00:07:48.100
  • THE LAMB OF GOD THAT TOOK AWAY
  • 00:07:48.100 --> 00:07:50.150
  • THE SINS OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:07:50.150 --> 00:07:52.110
  • AND WHEN PETER WAS SAYING,
  • 00:07:52.110 --> 00:07:53.160
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:54.130
  • TO THE CROSS,"
  • 00:07:54.130 --> 00:07:55.250
  • THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT SATAN
  • 00:07:55.250 --> 00:07:57.210
  • DID NOT WANT TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:57.210 --> 00:07:59.240
  • AND JESUS LOOKED AT
  • 00:07:59.240 --> 00:08:00.270
  • HIS FOLLOWER AND SAID,
  • 00:08:00.270 --> 00:08:02.270
  • "YOU ARE SPEAKING THE MESSAGE
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:06.060
  • OF SATAN IN MY EAR;
  • 00:08:06.060 --> 00:08:08.120
  • GET BEHIND ME."
  • 00:08:08.120 --> 00:08:09.240
  • TRANSLATION: SHUT UP.
  • 00:08:10.130 --> 00:08:13.130
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:14.230 --> 00:08:17.230
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:08:17.230 --> 00:08:19.050
  • IF YOUR ATTITUDE IS CONTROLLED
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:21.120
  • BY SATAN?
  • 00:08:21.120 --> 00:08:22.190
  • THE ANSWER IS,
  • 00:08:22.190 --> 00:08:23.240
  • WHEN YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD
  • 00:08:23.240 --> 00:08:25.160
  • FIRST.
  • 00:08:25.160 --> 00:08:26.190
  • WHEN YOUR WILL
  • 00:08:26.190 --> 00:08:27.180
  • IS NOT GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:08:27.290 --> 00:08:30.290
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU ARE
  • 00:08:30.290 --> 00:08:31.290
  • IN A DANGEROUS TERRITORY.
  • 00:08:32.060 --> 00:08:35.060
  • SATAN DID NOT PUT GOD FIRST.
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:37.130
  • AND EVEN THOUGH HE WAS
  • 00:08:37.130 --> 00:08:38.100
  • AN ARCHANGEL,
  • 00:08:38.100 --> 00:08:40.000
  • ONE OF THE TOP THREE IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:08:40.000 --> 00:08:41.260
  • GOD KICKED HIM OUT OF HEAVEN
  • 00:08:41.260 --> 00:08:43.200
  • AND HE BECAME THE DEVIL.
  • 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:45.200
  • WHY?
  • 00:08:45.200 --> 00:08:46.150
  • BECAUSE HE WORSHIPED HIS WILL.
  • 00:08:46.150 --> 00:08:48.160
  • ADAM AND EVE HAD ONE THING
  • 00:08:48.160 --> 00:08:50.160
  • TO DO AND THEY BLEW THAT,
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:53.110
  • AND GOD KICKED THEM OUT
  • 00:08:53.110 --> 00:08:54.150
  • OF THE GARDEN FOR NOT PUTTING
  • 00:08:54.150 --> 00:08:56.250
  • HIS WILL FIRST.
  • 00:08:56.250 --> 00:08:58.160
  • EVE WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:58.160 --> 00:09:00.060
  • ADAM WAS CURSED.
  • 00:09:00.060 --> 00:09:01.250
  • THE GROUND WAS CURSED.
  • 00:09:01.250 --> 00:09:03.120
  • "THORNS AND THISTLES
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:04.240
  • SHALL IT GROW."
  • 00:09:04.240 --> 00:09:05.270
  • AND THAT CURSE LIVES
  • 00:09:05.270 --> 00:09:07.140
  • UNTIL THIS DAY!
  • 00:09:07.140 --> 00:09:10.000
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:09:10.000 --> 00:09:12.030
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:09:12.030 --> 00:09:13.120
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD OF ALL,
  • 00:09:13.120 --> 00:09:15.240
  • THEN HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:18.170
  • CAN I GET A WITNESS TO THAT?
  • 00:09:18.210 --> 00:09:21.210
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:22.200 --> 00:09:25.200
  • NOW LET'S LOOK AT ABRAHAM.
  • 00:09:25.200 --> 00:09:27.090
  • WHY DID GOD CHOOSE ABRAHAM
  • 00:09:27.090 --> 00:09:28.210
  • TO BE THE FATHER OF ALL
  • 00:09:28.210 --> 00:09:29.200
  • WHO BELIEVE?
  • 00:09:29.200 --> 00:09:31.140
  • WHY IS IT THAT THOUSANDS
  • 00:09:31.140 --> 00:09:32.210
  • OF YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH,
  • 00:09:32.210 --> 00:09:34.110
  • PEOPLE STILL KNOW HIM BETTER
  • 00:09:34.110 --> 00:09:36.110
  • THAN MOST ANY PERSON
  • 00:09:36.110 --> 00:09:37.060
  • ON THE EARTH?
  • 00:09:37.060 --> 00:09:38.240
  • BECAUSE HE UNDERSTOOD THE LAW
  • 00:09:38.240 --> 00:09:40.050
  • OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:09:40.050 --> 00:09:41.210
  • WHEN ABRAHAM TIED ISAAC
  • 00:09:41.210 --> 00:09:43.130
  • AND PLACED HIM ON THE ALTAR
  • 00:09:43.130 --> 00:09:45.060
  • TO SACRIFICE HIM TO GOD,
  • 00:09:45.060 --> 00:09:47.120
  • HE LIFTED HIS DAGGER,
  • 00:09:47.120 --> 00:09:48.180
  • AND THE ANGEL OF GOD STOPPED
  • 00:09:48.180 --> 00:09:49.280
  • HIM.
  • 00:09:49.280 --> 00:09:51.030
  • AND THEN THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:09:51.030 --> 00:09:52.040
  • "I KNOW THAT YOU FEAR GOD,"
  • 00:09:52.040 --> 00:09:53.270
  • GENESIS 22:12.
  • 00:09:53.270 --> 00:09:55.290
  • THE LIVING BIBLE RENDERS
  • 00:09:55.290 --> 00:09:57.030
  • THIS VERSE THIS WAY;
  • 00:09:57.030 --> 00:09:58.120
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:58.120 --> 00:09:59.100
  • "I KNOW THAT GOD IS FIRST
  • 00:09:59.100 --> 00:10:01.100
  • IN YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:10:01.100 --> 00:10:03.090
  • ONLY WHEN YOU PUT GOD FIRST
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:05.240
  • IS GOD ABLE TO PROVIDE
  • 00:10:05.240 --> 00:10:07.260
  • WHAT HE PROMISES.
  • 00:10:07.260 --> 00:10:10.050
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:10.050 --> 00:10:11.250
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:12.260

  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:47.240
  • OF SACRIFICE IN WHICH ANIMALS
  • 00:11:47.240 --> 00:11:50.060
  • WERE TO BE BURNED AS AN OFFERING
  • 00:11:50.060 --> 00:11:51.240
  • UPON THE ALTAR.
  • 00:11:51.240 --> 00:11:53.010
  • IN LEVITICUS 1,
  • 00:11:53.010 --> 00:11:54.060
  • GOD DESIGNATED FIVE DIFFERENT
  • 00:11:54.060 --> 00:11:55.280
  • ANIMALS THAT WERE ACCEPTABLE
  • 00:11:55.280 --> 00:11:58.050
  • FOR SACRIFICES.
  • 00:11:58.050 --> 00:11:59.250
  • THE FIVE CLEAN ANIMALS WERE
  • 00:11:59.250 --> 00:12:01.170
  • OXEN, GOATS, SHEEP,
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:03.190
  • PIGEONS, AND TURTLE DOVES.
  • 00:12:03.190 --> 00:12:05.220
  • AND THE ANIMAL YOU SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:05.220 --> 00:12:08.080
  • WAS A REFLECTION
  • 00:12:08.080 --> 00:12:09.280
  • OF YOUR FINANCIAL ABILITY.
  • 00:12:09.280 --> 00:12:12.050
  • BUT THIS WAS THE COMMAND
  • 00:12:12.050 --> 00:12:13.160
  • TO EVERY PERSON IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:12:13.160 --> 00:12:15.210
  • "DON'T COME EMPTY HANDED
  • 00:12:15.210 --> 00:12:18.170
  • BEFORE THE LORD."
  • 00:12:18.170 --> 00:12:20.250
  • IF ALL YOU CAN AFFORD IS A BIRD,
  • 00:12:21.110 --> 00:12:24.110
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:12:24.110 --> 00:12:26.200
  • IF YOU CAN AFFORD A THOUSAND
  • 00:12:26.200 --> 00:12:28.100
  • OXEN AS SOLOMON,
  • 00:12:28.100 --> 00:12:30.070
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:31.250
  • BUT DO NOT COME EMPTY HANDED.
  • 00:12:32.080 --> 00:12:35.080
  • IN THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:12:35.080 --> 00:12:36.130
  • EVERYTHING IS EITHER SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:36.130 --> 00:12:38.220
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:38.220 --> 00:12:39.180
  • GET THOSE TWO WORDS,
  • 00:12:39.180 --> 00:12:41.130
  • "SACRIFICED" OR "REDEEMED."
  • 00:12:41.130 --> 00:12:44.130
  • EXODUS 13:2,
  • 00:12:44.130 --> 00:12:45.280
  • "CONSECRATE TO ME
  • 00:12:45.280 --> 00:12:47.080
  • ALL THE FIRSTBORN.
  • 00:12:47.080 --> 00:12:49.040
  • WHATEVER OPENS THE WOMB
  • 00:12:49.040 --> 00:12:50.150
  • AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:12:50.150 --> 00:12:51.260
  • BOTH OF MEN AND BEASTS,
  • 00:12:51.260 --> 00:12:53.100
  • IT IS MINE."
  • 00:12:53.100 --> 00:12:55.220
  • I'M READING THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:55.220 --> 00:12:57.100
  • ACCORDING TO OLD TESTAMENT LAW,
  • 00:12:57.100 --> 00:12:59.100
  • THE FIRSTBORN WAS TO BE EITHER
  • 00:12:59.100 --> 00:13:01.060
  • SACRIFICED OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:13:01.060 --> 00:13:03.020
  • THERE WAS NO THIRD OPTION.
  • 00:13:03.020 --> 00:13:05.060
  • FAST FORWARD
  • 00:13:05.060 --> 00:13:05.280
  • TO THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:13:05.280 --> 00:13:07.090
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST MEETS
  • 00:13:07.090 --> 00:13:09.150
  • JESUS CHRIST ON THE BANKS
  • 00:13:09.150 --> 00:13:11.020
  • OF THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 00:13:11.020 --> 00:13:12.220
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:13:12.220 --> 00:13:13.140
  • "BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
  • 00:13:13.140 --> 00:13:14.230
  • THAT TAKES AWAY THE SIN
  • 00:13:14.230 --> 00:13:16.020
  • OF THE WORLD,"
  • 00:13:16.020 --> 00:13:17.080
  • JOHN 1:29.
  • 00:13:17.080 --> 00:13:19.050
  • JESUS WAS GOD'S ONLY
  • 00:13:19.050 --> 00:13:20.160
  • BEGOTTEN SON.
  • 00:13:20.160 --> 00:13:22.080
  • HE HAD TO BE SACRIFICED
  • 00:13:22.080 --> 00:13:24.180
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:13:24.180 --> 00:13:26.010
  • GOD ALLOWED HIS SON,
  • 00:13:26.010 --> 00:13:28.010
  • A MALE LAMB,
  • 00:13:28.010 --> 00:13:29.150
  • WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE,
  • 00:13:29.150 --> 00:13:31.130
  • TO BE SACRIFICED FOR THE SINS
  • 00:13:31.130 --> 00:13:33.110
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:13:33.110 --> 00:13:34.200
  • THE POINT IS,
  • 00:13:34.200 --> 00:13:35.230
  • IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT CHRIST AS
  • 00:13:35.230 --> 00:13:38.070
  • YOUR SUBSTITUTE ON THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:38.070 --> 00:13:40.260
  • YOU MUST DIE FOR YOUR SIN,
  • 00:13:41.290 --> 00:13:44.290
  • BECAUSE THE WAGES OF SIN IS
  • 00:13:44.290 --> 00:13:47.230
  • DEATH.
  • 00:13:47.230 --> 00:13:49.060
  • JESUS PAID THE BILL FOR US
  • 00:13:49.060 --> 00:13:51.290
  • TO BE REDEEMED FROM THE POWER
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:54.100
  • OF SIN AND DARKNESS.
  • 00:13:54.100 --> 00:13:56.010
  • BECAUSE OF THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:56.010 --> 00:13:57.220
  • WE ARE FREE,
  • 00:13:57.220 --> 00:13:59.000
  • WE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 00:13:59.000 --> 00:14:00.220
  • WE HAVE HEALING FROM SICKNESS
  • 00:14:00.220 --> 00:14:02.200
  • AND DISEASE.
  • 00:14:02.200 --> 00:14:04.020
  • THERE IS VICTORY OVER
  • 00:14:04.020 --> 00:14:05.190
  • THE WORLD, THE FLESH,
  • 00:14:05.190 --> 00:14:06.290
  • AND THE DEVIL.
  • 00:14:06.290 --> 00:14:08.010
  • THERE'S THE PROSPERITY
  • 00:14:08.010 --> 00:14:09.260
  • OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:14:09.260 --> 00:14:11.030
  • THE PEACE OF GOD THAT SURPASSES
  • 00:14:11.030 --> 00:14:13.160
  • UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:14:13.160 --> 00:14:14.270
  • HALLELUJAH FOR THE CROSS!
  • 00:14:14.270 --> 00:14:16.260
  • GIVE HIM PRAISE AND GLORY
  • 00:14:16.260 --> 00:14:18.140
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:14:18.140 --> 00:14:20.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:22.010 --> 00:14:25.010
  • CONCERNING FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:14:25.010 --> 00:14:26.250
  • WHATEVER IS DONE
  • 00:14:26.250 --> 00:14:27.290
  • WITH FIRST FRUITS DETERMINES

  • SO FOLLOW THIS;
  • 00:14:33.110 --> 00:14:34.270
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRSTBORN SON
  • 00:14:34.270 --> 00:14:36.170
  • OF ABRAHAM.
  • 00:14:36.170 --> 00:14:37.270
  • AS FIRSTBORN,
  • 00:14:37.270 --> 00:14:39.220
  • HE WAS TO BE REDEEMED
  • 00:14:39.220 --> 00:14:41.230
  • OR SACRIFICED.
  • 00:14:41.230 --> 00:14:43.170
  • WHEN ABRAHAM PUT ISAAC
  • 00:14:43.170 --> 00:14:44.230
  • ON THE ALTAR,
  • 00:14:44.230 --> 00:14:46.240
  • GOD SENT A RAM TIED BY THE
  • 00:14:46.240 --> 00:14:49.140
  • HORNS IN A THICKET TO REDEEM
  • 00:14:49.280 --> 00:14:52.280
  • ISAAC.
  • 00:14:52.280 --> 00:14:54.120
  • WHEN THE FIRST FRUITS WAS
  • 00:14:54.120 --> 00:14:55.180
  • GIVEN,
  • 00:14:55.180 --> 00:14:56.080
  • IT BRINGS A MIGHTY HARVEST.
  • 00:14:56.080 --> 00:14:58.030
  • FOLLOW THE HISTORY.
  • 00:14:58.030 --> 00:14:59.290
  • WHATEVER IS DONE WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:14:59.290 --> 00:15:01.190
  • PORTION DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:15:01.190 --> 00:15:04.020
  • TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:15:04.020 --> 00:15:05.220
  • WE GO TO CHURCH
  • 00:15:05.220 --> 00:15:06.200
  • ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:15:06.200 --> 00:15:08.080
  • IT DETERMINES THE QUALITY
  • 00:15:08.080 --> 00:15:10.210
  • OF THE REST OF THE SIX DAYS.
  • 00:15:10.210 --> 00:15:13.080
  • YOU GIVE TO GOD YOUR TITHE
  • 00:15:13.080 --> 00:15:15.120
  • FIRST,
  • 00:15:15.120 --> 00:15:16.070
  • AND HE BLESSES WHAT IS LEFT.
  • 00:15:16.070 --> 00:15:18.290
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:15:18.290 --> 00:15:21.080
  • HE HAD TWO SONS,
  • 00:15:21.080 --> 00:15:22.190
  • JACOB AND ESAU.
  • 00:15:22.190 --> 00:15:24.070
  • JACOB HAD 12 SONS,
  • 00:15:24.070 --> 00:15:26.060
  • AND THEIR DESCENDANTS BECAME
  • 00:15:26.060 --> 00:15:27.290
  • THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:15:27.290 --> 00:15:30.060
  • GOD SENT JOSEPH INTO EGYPT
  • 00:15:30.060 --> 00:15:32.150
  • WHERE HE BECAME
  • 00:15:32.150 --> 00:15:33.070
  • THE PRIME MINISTER.
  • 00:15:33.070 --> 00:15:34.200
  • JOSEPH SENT FOR HIS FAMILY,
  • 00:15:34.200 --> 00:15:36.170
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO WERE 70
  • 00:15:36.170 --> 00:15:38.250
  • IN NUMBER.
  • 00:15:38.250 --> 00:15:40.010
  • AND THEY STAYED IN EGYPT
  • 00:15:40.010 --> 00:15:41.220
  • FOR 430 YEARS.
  • 00:15:41.220 --> 00:15:44.030
  • THEY BECAME A MIGHTY NATION
  • 00:15:44.030 --> 00:15:46.110
  • OF ALMOST TWO MILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:46.110 --> 00:15:48.200
  • EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE
  • 00:15:48.200 --> 00:15:49.210
  • PERSECUTED,
  • 00:15:49.210 --> 00:15:51.020
  • THEY PROSPERED AND THEY GREW.
  • 00:15:51.020 --> 00:15:53.140
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:53.140 --> 00:15:54.130
  • BECAUSE THE FIRST FRUIT,
  • 00:15:54.130 --> 00:15:56.050
  • ISAAC ON MOUNT MORIAH,
  • 00:15:56.050 --> 00:15:58.190
  • HAD BEEN GIVEN TO GOD.
  • 00:15:58.190 --> 00:16:00.140
  • AND WHAT YOU DO WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:16:00.140 --> 00:16:01.270
  • FRUIT DETERMINES THE GUARANTEE
  • 00:16:01.270 --> 00:16:04.200
  • OF EVERYTHING THAT COMES
  • 00:16:04.200 --> 00:16:05.270
  • AFTER IT!
  • 00:16:05.270 --> 00:16:06.220
  • THAT'S WHY THEY ARE BLESSED
  • 00:16:06.220 --> 00:16:08.140
  • AND ALWAYS WILL BE BLESSED,
  • 00:16:08.140 --> 00:16:10.210
  • BECAUSE GOD IS KEEPING
  • 00:16:10.210 --> 00:16:12.140
  • HIS COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM!
  • 00:16:12.140 --> 00:16:14.150
  • GIVE THE LORD A SHOUT OF PRAISE
  • 00:16:14.150 --> 00:16:16.140
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:16:16.140 --> 00:16:18.130
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:16:20.030 --> 00:16:23.030
  • NOW LET ME SHOW YOU HOW THAT
  • 00:16:23.030 --> 00:16:23.290
  • WORKS IN REVERSE.
  • 00:16:23.290 --> 00:16:25.160
  • IF YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD FIRST,
  • 00:16:25.160 --> 00:16:27.270
  • IT DOESN'T STOP
  • 00:16:27.270 --> 00:16:28.240
  • GOD FROM BEING FIRST;
  • 00:16:28.240 --> 00:16:31.140
  • IT ONLY RELEASES THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:16:31.140 --> 00:16:33.130
  • OF GOD UPON YOU.
  • 00:16:33.130 --> 00:16:35.120
  • IT RELEASES THE CURSE UPON
  • 00:16:35.120 --> 00:16:37.190
  • EVERYTHING YOU PUT YOUR HANDS
  • 00:16:37.190 --> 00:16:39.040
  • TO FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:16:39.040 --> 00:16:41.220
  • UNTIL YOU GET YOUR ACT
  • 00:16:41.220 --> 00:16:42.240
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:16:42.240 --> 00:16:44.020
  • THE ONLY WAY OUT IS REDEMPTION,
  • 00:16:44.020 --> 00:16:46.120
  • WHICH MEANS TO BUY BACK
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:48.080
  • FROM DESTRUCTION BY OBEYING
  • 00:16:48.080 --> 00:16:50.270
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:51.200 --> 00:16:54.200
  • WOW.
  • 00:16:54.200 --> 00:16:56.260
  • CONSIDER THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:16:56.260 --> 00:16:58.140
  • AND THE FALL OF JERICHO.
  • 00:16:58.140 --> 00:17:00.120
  • FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:01.150
  • OF SLAVERY IN EGYPT WAS
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:02.250
  • FOLLOWED BY 40 YEARS OF HEAT
  • 00:17:03.150 --> 00:17:06.150
  • AND GRIT IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:17:06.150 --> 00:17:08.290
  • WITH JOSHUA AS THEIR LEADER,
  • 00:17:08.290 --> 00:17:11.020
  • GOD RELEASED A PLAN THAT WOULD
  • 00:17:11.020 --> 00:17:13.010
  • BEGIN THE CONQUEST
  • 00:17:13.010 --> 00:17:14.220
  • OF THE HOLY LAND.
  • 00:17:14.220 --> 00:17:16.100
  • THINK OF JERICHO
  • 00:17:16.100 --> 00:17:17.150
  • AS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:17:17.150 --> 00:17:18.210
  • JERICHO'S THE CITY.
  • 00:17:18.210 --> 00:17:21.040
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY
  • 00:17:21.040 --> 00:17:22.150
  • THAT STOOD BETWEEN ISRAEL
  • 00:17:22.150 --> 00:17:24.150
  • AND THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:17:24.150 --> 00:17:26.290
  • GOD MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE WAS
  • 00:17:26.290 --> 00:17:28.260
  • GIVING JERICHO TO THE JEWISH
  • 00:17:28.260 --> 00:17:31.140
  • PEOPLE AS A GIFT,
  • 00:17:31.140 --> 00:17:33.170
  • BECAUSE THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:34.240
  • "I'M GOING TO FIGHT FOR YOU."
  • 00:17:34.240 --> 00:17:37.090
  • THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING
  • 00:17:37.090 --> 00:17:38.130
  • THAT WAS FORBIDDEN?
  • 00:17:38.130 --> 00:17:39.180
  • JOSHUA 6:18 AND 19,
  • 00:17:39.180 --> 00:17:42.030
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:17:42.030 --> 00:17:42.250
  • "THE GOLD AND THE SILVER
  • 00:17:42.250 --> 00:17:44.170
  • OF JERICHO BELONG TO ME.
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:47.230
  • AND YOU, BY ALL MEANS,
  • 00:17:47.230 --> 00:17:49.150
  • ABSTAIN FROM THE ACCURSED THING,
  • 00:17:49.150 --> 00:17:51.260
  • LEST YOU BECOME ACCURSED WHEN
  • 00:17:51.260 --> 00:17:54.080
  • YOU TAKE THE ACCURSED THING AND
  • 00:17:54.080 --> 00:17:55.280
  • MAKE THE CAMP OF ISRAEL A CURSE
  • 00:17:55.280 --> 00:17:58.200
  • AND A PLACE OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:17:58.290 --> 00:18:02.010
  • BUT ALL THE GOLD,
  • 00:18:02.010 --> 00:18:03.110
  • AND ALL THE SILVER,
  • 00:18:03.110 --> 00:18:04.280
  • AND ALL THE VESSELS OF IRON,
  • 00:18:04.280 --> 00:18:07.030
  • ARE CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:18:07.030 --> 00:18:09.060
  • THEY SHALL COME INTO
  • 00:18:09.060 --> 00:18:10.140
  • THE TREASURY OF THE LORD."
  • 00:18:10.140 --> 00:18:13.000
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:18:13.000 --> 00:18:14.040
  • BECAUSE ISRAEL FULLY UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:18:14.040 --> 00:18:15.290
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:18:15.290 --> 00:18:17.130
  • THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:18:17.130 --> 00:18:19.040
  • IN JERICHO BELONGED
  • 00:18:19.040 --> 00:18:20.210
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:18:20.210 --> 00:18:21.190
  • KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF IT,
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:22.290
  • BECAUSE GOD WAS GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:18:22.290 --> 00:18:24.110
  • YOU EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WOULD
  • 00:18:24.110 --> 00:18:25.210
  • COME AFTER IT.
  • 00:18:25.210 --> 00:18:26.220
  • EVERYBODY GOT THE MESSAGE
  • 00:18:26.220 --> 00:18:28.260
  • BUT ONE GUY, ACHAN,
  • 00:18:29.210 --> 00:18:32.210
  • BECAUSE HE WAS THE SMART ALECK
  • 00:18:32.210 --> 00:18:35.010
  • WHO KNEW BETTER.
  • 00:18:35.010 --> 00:18:36.180
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE RELATIVES
  • 00:18:36.180 --> 00:18:37.230
  • THAT ALWAYS KNOW BETTER?
  • 00:18:37.230 --> 00:18:40.150
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:40.150 --> 00:18:41.040
  • THEY ALWAYS HAVE THE BETTER
  • 00:18:41.040 --> 00:18:42.090
  • IDEA,
  • 00:18:42.090 --> 00:18:43.090
  • AND IT ALWAYS TURNS OUT
  • 00:18:43.090 --> 00:18:44.170
  • TO BE A DISASTER.
  • 00:18:44.170 --> 00:18:46.150
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:46.150 --> 00:18:47.050
  • THE BATTLE OF AI,
  • 00:18:47.050 --> 00:18:48.020
  • ISRAEL'S ARMY WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:18:48.140 --> 00:18:51.140
  • JOSHUA INQUIRED OF THE LORD,
  • 00:18:51.140 --> 00:18:53.080
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:18:53.080 --> 00:18:53.260
  • "GET UP;
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:54.120
  • THERE'S SIN IN THE CAMP."
  • 00:18:54.120 --> 00:18:55.270
  • AND THEY WENT TENT BY TENT
  • 00:18:55.270 --> 00:18:57.230
  • SEARCHING.
  • 00:18:57.230 --> 00:18:58.230
  • THEY SEARCHED 11 TRIBES.
  • 00:18:58.230 --> 00:19:01.130
  • AND THEY REACHED ACHAN'S TRIBE.
  • 00:19:01.130 --> 00:19:03.260
  • THE TRIBE OF JUDAH WAS LAST.
  • 00:19:03.260 --> 00:19:05.260
  • AND THEY CAME TO HIS TENT,
  • 00:19:05.260 --> 00:19:07.140
  • AND JOSHUA COMMANDED ACHAN
  • 00:19:07.140 --> 00:19:09.100
  • IN JOSHUA 7:19,
  • 00:19:09.100 --> 00:19:11.090
  • "GIVE GOD THE GLORY."
  • 00:19:11.090 --> 00:19:13.040
  • THAT MEANS THE THINGS
  • 00:19:13.040 --> 00:19:14.040
  • YOU'VE STOLEN,
  • 00:19:14.040 --> 00:19:15.130
  • GIVE THEM BACK.
  • 00:19:15.130 --> 00:19:16.260
  • ACHAN HAD STOLEN THE GLORY
  • 00:19:16.260 --> 00:19:18.100
  • OF GOD BECAUSE HE TOOK
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:19.130
  • THE THINGS THAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:19:19.130 --> 00:19:21.210
  • THE RESULT WAS THAT ACHAN,
  • 00:19:21.230 --> 00:19:24.230
  • HIS WIFE,
  • 00:19:24.230 --> 00:19:26.060
  • HIS SONS,
  • 00:19:26.060 --> 00:19:26.260
  • HIS DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:19:26.260 --> 00:19:27.190
  • HIS LIVESTOCK,
  • 00:19:27.190 --> 00:19:28.290
  • WERE STONED TO DEATH
  • 00:19:28.290 --> 00:19:30.060
  • BY ALL OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:19:30.060 --> 00:19:32.000
  • AND THEY STACKED THEIR BODIES
  • 00:19:32.000 --> 00:19:33.140
  • IN A PILE AND BURNED THEM WITH
  • 00:19:33.140 --> 00:19:35.060
  • FIRE TO PURGE ISRAEL OF THE SIN
  • 00:19:35.160 --> 00:19:38.160
  • OF TAKING WHAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:19:38.160 --> 00:19:41.080
  • THINK ABOUT THIS STORY.
  • 00:19:41.080 --> 00:19:42.200
  • BECAUSE OF ONE MAN'S
  • 00:19:42.200 --> 00:19:44.000
  • DISOBEDIENCE,
  • 00:19:44.000 --> 00:19:45.050
  • THE ENTIRE NATION SUFFERED
  • 00:19:45.050 --> 00:19:47.110
  • THE CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:19:47.110 --> 00:19:48.290
  • THEY HAD TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:19:48.290 --> 00:19:50.110
  • THE ACHAN FACTOR.
  • 00:19:50.110 --> 00:19:53.010
  • ARE YOU TAKING WHAT BELONGS
  • 00:19:53.010 --> 00:19:54.110
  • TO THE LORD?
  • 00:19:54.110 --> 00:19:56.000
  • IS YOUR FAMILY OR YOUR CHILDREN?
  • 00:19:56.000 --> 00:19:58.060
  • WILL GENERATIONS AFTER YOU
  • 00:19:58.060 --> 00:20:00.070
  • SUFFER BECAUSE OF YOUR REFUSAL
  • 00:20:00.070 --> 00:20:02.220
  • TO OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:20:02.220 --> 00:20:03.220
  • OF FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:20:03.220 --> 00:20:05.130
  • IF THE CHURCH IS ONE BODY
  • 00:20:05.130 --> 00:20:07.000
  • FITLY JOINED TOGETHER,
  • 00:20:07.000 --> 00:20:08.260
  • THEN YOUR DISOBEDIENCE AFFECTS
  • 00:20:08.260 --> 00:20:10.170
  • THE WHOLE BODY.
  • 00:20:10.170 --> 00:20:11.180
  • IF ONE MAN AFFECTED TWO MILLION
  • 00:20:11.180 --> 00:20:13.110
  • PEOPLE IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:14.200
  • CERTAINLY ONE MAN
  • 00:20:14.200 --> 00:20:15.210
  • CAN AFFECT 22.000 HERE
  • 00:20:15.210 --> 00:20:17.190
  • AT CORNERSTONE CHURCH.
  • 00:20:17.190 --> 00:20:19.280
  • THIS EXPLAINS WHY SOME CHURCHES
  • 00:20:19.280 --> 00:20:21.230
  • DO NOT FINANCIALLY PROSPER.
  • 00:20:21.230 --> 00:20:24.000
  • WHEN ISRAEL WAS IN THE DESERT,
  • 00:20:24.000 --> 00:20:25.120
  • ALL THEY HAD WAS MANNA.
  • 00:20:25.120 --> 00:20:27.020
  • NONE OF THEIR CLOTHES WORE OUT.
  • 00:20:27.020 --> 00:20:28.210
  • THEY WERE NOT SICK NOR FEEBLE,
  • 00:20:28.210 --> 00:20:30.120
  • NO ONE, FOR 40 YEARS.
  • 00:20:30.180 --> 00:20:33.180
  • GOD'S ABUNDANCE WILL BE
  • 00:20:33.180 --> 00:20:35.120
  • WITHHELD FROM THE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:20:35.120 --> 00:20:38.060
  • REFUSE TO HONOR HIM AS FIRST.
  • 00:20:38.180 --> 00:20:41.180
  • THE SPIRIT OF ACHAN TAKES WHAT
  • 00:20:41.180 --> 00:20:43.070
  • BELONGS TO GOD AND KEEPS IT
  • 00:20:43.070 --> 00:20:45.140
  • FOR HIMSELF AT THE EXPENSE
  • 00:20:45.140 --> 00:20:48.020
  • OF OTHERS.
  • 00:20:48.020 --> 00:20:49.210
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:20:49.210 --> 00:20:50.240
  • AND TITHING.
  • 00:20:50.240 --> 00:20:51.170
  • TITHING IS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:51.170 --> 00:20:53.100
  • LET'S REVIEW WHAT WE'VE
  • 00:20:53.100 --> 00:20:54.090
  • LEARNED.
  • 00:20:54.090 --> 00:20:55.110
  • THE FIRST FRUITS INCLUDE
  • 00:20:55.110 --> 00:20:56.160
  • CHILDREN, ANIMALS, CROPS,
  • 00:20:56.160 --> 00:20:58.260
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:20:58.260 --> 00:21:00.210
  • GOD SIMPLY SAYS,
  • 00:21:00.210 --> 00:21:01.240
  • I WANT TO BE THE FIRST
  • 00:21:01.240 --> 00:21:02.270
  • OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:21:02.270 --> 00:21:04.020
  • WHEN GOD DESTROYED JERICHO,
  • 00:21:04.020 --> 00:21:05.240
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY CONQUERED
  • 00:21:05.240 --> 00:21:07.190
  • ON THE WAY
  • 00:21:07.190 --> 00:21:08.060
  • TO THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:21:08.060 --> 00:21:09.110
  • IT WAS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:21:09.110 --> 00:21:10.170
  • AND GOD SAYS, IT'S MINE.
  • 00:21:10.170 --> 00:21:12.250
  • YOUR INCOME IS EITHER
  • 00:21:12.250 --> 00:21:14.110
  • CONSECRATED OR CURSED.
  • 00:21:14.110 --> 00:21:17.060
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:21:17.060 --> 00:21:18.040
  • IT'S EITHER CONSECRATED
  • 00:21:18.040 --> 00:21:19.180
  • OR CURSED.
  • 00:21:19.180 --> 00:21:20.090
  • THE TITHE, IN THE SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:21:20.090 --> 00:21:22.030
  • IS CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:21:22.030 --> 00:21:24.010
  • IF YOU KEEP IT FOR YOURSELF,
  • 00:21:24.010 --> 00:21:26.000
  • IT BECOMES A --
  • 00:21:26.000 --> 00:21:27.220
  • [Curse.]
  • 00:21:27.220 --> 00:21:28.150
  • -- CURSE,
  • 00:21:28.150 --> 00:21:30.010
  • BECAUSE IT'S STOLEN FROM GOD.
  • 00:21:30.010 --> 00:21:33.010
  • GOD MAKES THAT CLEAR
  • 00:21:33.010 --> 00:21:34.080
  • IN MALACHI 3:8 AND 9.
  • 00:21:34.080 --> 00:21:36.230
  • "WILL A MAN ROB GOD?
  • 00:21:36.230 --> 00:21:37.260
  • YOU'VE ROBBED ME.
  • 00:21:37.260 --> 00:21:39.140
  • HOW DID WE ROB YOU?"
  • 00:21:39.140 --> 00:21:41.000
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:21:41.000 --> 00:21:41.190
  • "YOU HAVE STOLEN THE TITHE
  • 00:21:41.190 --> 00:21:44.090
  • AND THE OFFERING FROM ME.
  • 00:21:44.090 --> 00:21:45.210
  • YOU ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE;
  • 00:21:45.210 --> 00:21:47.080
  • FOR YOU HAVE ROBBED ME."
  • 00:21:47.250 --> 00:21:50.250
  • THE TITHE IS A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:52.010 --> 00:21:55.010
  • IT'S NOT A DEBT WE OWE;
  • 00:21:55.010 --> 00:21:56.120
  • IT'S A SEED WE SOW.
  • 00:21:56.120 --> 00:21:58.280
  • WHEREVER THERE IS THE NUMBER
  • 00:21:58.280 --> 00:22:00.020
  • OF TEN INVOLVED,
  • 00:22:00.020 --> 00:22:01.230
  • THERE'S A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:22:01.230 --> 00:22:03.270
  • THE PLAGUES WERE USED TO SET
  • 00:22:03.270 --> 00:22:05.120
  • ISRAEL FREE FROM PHARAOH,
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:07.060
  • TEN PLAGUES.
  • 00:22:07.060 --> 00:22:08.130
  • TEN COMMANDMENTS WERE GIVEN
  • 00:22:08.130 --> 00:22:09.280
  • TO SET THE WORLD FREE
  • 00:22:09.280 --> 00:22:11.250
  • FROM THE TYRANNY OF EVIL.
  • 00:22:11.250 --> 00:22:13.270
  • TEN DONKEYS WERE SENT BY JOSEPH
  • 00:22:13.270 --> 00:22:15.290
  • TO BRING JACOB AND ALL OF
  • 00:22:15.290 --> 00:22:18.030
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY
  • 00:22:18.030 --> 00:22:20.060
  • TO THE LANDS OF EGYPT.
  • 00:22:20.060 --> 00:22:22.010
  • THE TENTH PART OF YOUR INCREASE
  • 00:22:22.010 --> 00:22:24.030
  • IS THE REDEMPTION
  • 00:22:24.030 --> 00:22:24.290
  • OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:22:24.290 --> 00:22:26.020
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GIVE 10%
  • 00:22:26.100 --> 00:22:29.100
  • OF YOUR INCOME
  • 00:22:29.100 --> 00:22:30.160
  • AND NOT GIVE THE FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:22:30.160 --> 00:22:32.180
  • THAT'S A QUESTION.
  • 00:22:32.180 --> 00:22:33.150
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:33.150 --> 00:22:35.110
  • LET'S PRETEND FOR JUST A MOMENT
  • 00:22:35.110 --> 00:22:37.020
  • THAT EACH ONE OF THESE ONE
  • 00:22:37.020 --> 00:22:39.120
  • DOLLAR BILLS IS A HUNDRED

  • DOLLAR BILL.
  • 00:22:41.200 --> 00:22:42.120
  • THIS IS A LOW BUCKET
  • 00:22:42.120 --> 00:22:43.290
  • ILLUSTRATION HERE.
  • 00:22:43.290 --> 00:22:45.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:45.180 --> 00:22:46.020
  • THE QUESTION IS;
  • 00:22:46.020 --> 00:22:47.040
  • CAN YOU GIVE GOD A TENTH
  • 00:22:47.040 --> 00:22:48.090
  • AND NOT PAY TITHE?
  • 00:22:48.090 --> 00:22:49.130
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:49.130 --> 00:22:51.290
  • IF YOU SIT DOWN TO PAY
  • 00:22:51.290 --> 00:22:53.030
  • YOUR BILLS,
  • 00:22:53.030 --> 00:22:53.250
  • AND YOU DO YOUR HOUSE NOTE,

  • YOUR CAR NOTE,
  • 00:22:56.040 --> 00:22:57.020

  • TO HIM.
  • 00:23:11.240 --> 00:23:12.100
  • AND IF HE WANTED,
  • 00:23:12.100 --> 00:23:13.000
  • HE'D GET IT ALL.
  • 00:23:13.000 --> 00:23:15.090
  • WHAT HE WANTS IS THIS ONE.
  • 00:23:15.090 --> 00:23:18.020
  • THIS IS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:23:18.020 --> 00:23:20.170
  • WHEN HE GETS THIS ONE,
  • 00:23:20.170 --> 00:23:21.290
  • ALL OF THESE ARE CONSECRATED.

  • 00:29:29.060 --> 00:29:30.130
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO TO PSALMS
  • 00:29:30.130 --> 00:29:31.230
  • OR PROVERBS WHERE ALL
  • 00:29:31.230 --> 00:29:32.270
  • OF THE LOVE VERSES ARE FOUND.
  • 00:29:32.270 --> 00:29:34.240
  • I'M GOING TO LOOK AT THE LIFE
  • 00:29:34.240 --> 00:29:36.100
  • OF NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:29:36.100 --> 00:29:37.020
  • BECAUSE HE WAS A WALL BUILDER.
  • 00:29:37.130 --> 00:29:40.130
  • AND I WANT YOU TO SEE
  • 00:29:40.130 --> 00:29:41.110
  • THE PRINCIPLES THAT HE USED
  • 00:29:41.110 --> 00:29:43.050
  • IN HIS CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
  • 00:29:43.050 --> 00:29:44.250
  • AND ALLOW THEM TO BLESS YOU
  • 00:29:44.250 --> 00:29:47.140
  • IN YOUR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
  • 00:29:47.140 --> 00:29:49.080
  • WHEN IT COMES TO BUILDING
  • 00:29:49.080 --> 00:29:50.210
  • A GOOD FAMILY,
  • 00:29:50.210 --> 00:29:52.140
  • BECAUSE THE BORDERS
  • 00:29:52.140 --> 00:29:53.140
  • OF THE FAMILY IN THIS NATION
  • 00:29:53.140 --> 00:29:55.160
  • ARE BROKEN.
  • 00:29:55.160 --> 00:29:57.070
  • AND BY GOD'S GRACE,
  • 00:29:57.070 --> 00:29:58.090
  • BY THE TIME THIS SERVICE
  • 00:29:58.090 --> 00:29:59.070
  • IS OVER,
  • 00:29:59.070 --> 00:29:59.220
  • WE WILL ALL UNDERSTAND WHAT OUR
  • 00:29:59.220 --> 00:30:01.160
  • RESPONSIBILITY IS TO SEE THEM
  • 00:30:01.160 --> 00:30:03.190
  • REBUILT IN AMERICA TODAY.
  • 00:30:03.200 --> 00:30:06.200
  • LET'S READ NEHEMIAH 2:17.
  • 00:30:07.000 --> 00:30:10.000
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:30:10.000 --> 00:30:10.230
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:30:10.230 --> 00:30:11.210
  • "THEN I SAID TO THEM,
  • 00:30:11.210 --> 00:30:14.080
  • 'YOU SEE THE DISTRESS
  • 00:30:14.080 --> 00:30:16.080
  • THAT WE ARE IN,
  • 00:30:16.080 --> 00:30:17.140
  • HOW JERUSALEM LIES WASTE
  • 00:30:17.140 --> 00:30:19.070
  • AND ITS GATES ARE BURDENED
  • 00:30:19.070 --> 00:30:20.110
  • WITH FIRE.
  • 00:30:20.110 --> 00:30:21.190
  • COME LET US BUILD THE WALL
  • 00:30:21.190 --> 00:30:23.150
  • OF JERUSALEM;
  • 00:30:23.150 --> 00:30:24.180
  • THAT WE MAY NO LONGER BE
  • 00:30:24.180 --> 00:30:26.140
  • A REPROACH.'
  • 00:30:26.140 --> 00:30:27.280
  • AND I TOLD THEM OF THE HAND
  • 00:30:27.280 --> 00:30:29.250
  • OF GOD,
  • 00:30:29.250 --> 00:30:30.120
  • WHICH HAD BEEN GOOD UPON ME,
  • 00:30:30.120 --> 00:30:32.060
  • AND ALSO OF THE KING'S WORDS
  • 00:30:32.060 --> 00:30:34.010
  • THAT HE HAD SPOKEN TO ME.
  • 00:30:34.010 --> 00:30:36.040
  • SO THEY SAID,
  • 00:30:36.040 --> 00:30:37.020
  • 'LET US RISE UP AND BUILD.'
  • 00:30:37.020 --> 00:30:40.010
  • AND THEN THEY SET THEIR HANDS
  • 00:30:40.010 --> 00:30:42.040
  • TO DO THIS GOOD WORK."
  • 00:30:42.170 --> 00:30:45.170
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:30:45.170 --> 00:30:46.230
  • LET YOUR WORD COME ALIVE IN US
  • 00:30:46.230 --> 00:30:48.190
  • TODAY;
  • 00:30:48.190 --> 00:30:50.000
  • THAT WE,
  • 00:30:50.000 --> 00:30:50.190
  • LIKE THE PEOPLE IN JERUSALEM
  • 00:30:50.190 --> 00:30:52.000
  • IN NEHEMIAH'S DAY,
  • 00:30:52.000 --> 00:30:54.050
  • WOULD SET OUR HANDS TO DO
  • 00:30:54.050 --> 00:30:55.230
  • THE GOOD WORK OF BUILDING
  • 00:30:55.230 --> 00:30:57.080
  • GODLY FAMILIES.
  • 00:30:57.080 --> 00:30:59.090
  • LET THE POWER
  • 00:30:59.090 --> 00:31:00.050
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:31:00.050 --> 00:31:01.050
  • CARRY THIS WORD PAST
  • 00:31:01.050 --> 00:31:02.210
  • THIS SERMON AND THIS SANCTUARY
  • 00:31:02.210 --> 00:31:04.160
  • INTO OUR HEARTS AND LIVES;
  • 00:31:04.160 --> 00:31:06.230
  • THAT WE COULD CHANGE THE FUTURE
  • 00:31:06.230 --> 00:31:08.030
  • OF THIS NATION FOR THE CAUSE
  • 00:31:08.030 --> 00:31:10.050
  • OF CHRIST' AND RIGHTEOUSNESS'
  • 00:31:10.050 --> 00:31:11.090
  • SAKE.
  • 00:31:11.090 --> 00:31:12.100
  • IT'S IN JESUS' NAME
  • 00:31:12.100 --> 00:31:12.280
  • THAT WE PRAY AND ASK.
  • 00:31:12.280 --> 00:31:13.240
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:31:13.240 --> 00:31:15.200
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:31:15.200 --> 00:31:16.190
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:31:16.190 --> 00:31:17.140
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:31:18.090 --> 00:31:21.090
  • I LIKE WHAT NEHEMIAH 2:18 SAYS.
  • 00:31:21.090 --> 00:31:24.070
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:31:24.070 --> 00:31:24.210
  • "THEY SET THEIR HANDS TO DO
  • 00:31:24.210 --> 00:31:27.120
  • GOOD WORK."
  • 00:31:27.120 --> 00:31:30.030
  • "GOOD WORK."
  • 00:31:30.030 --> 00:31:32.010
  • NOTICE THAT THERE'S
  • 00:31:32.010 --> 00:31:32.220
  • A DISTINCTION THAT NEHEMIAH
  • 00:31:32.220 --> 00:31:34.020
  • MAKES ABOUT THE WORK
  • 00:31:34.020 --> 00:31:35.030
  • THAT'S BEING DONE.
  • 00:31:35.030 --> 00:31:36.070
  • IT'S NOT JUST ANY WORK;
  • 00:31:36.070 --> 00:31:38.010
  • IT'S GOOD WORK.
  • 00:31:38.010 --> 00:31:39.230
  • ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:31:39.230 --> 00:31:40.110
  • THAT I BELIEVE IS IMPORTANT,
  • 00:31:40.110 --> 00:31:41.200
  • BEFORE WE CAN EVEN BEGIN TO
  • 00:31:41.200 --> 00:31:43.180
  • EXPECT MARRIAGES TO GET BETTER,
  • 00:31:43.180 --> 00:31:45.260
  • IS THAT WE HAVE GOT TO MAKE
  • 00:31:45.260 --> 00:31:47.050
  • A DECISION THAT WE ARE GOING
  • 00:31:47.050 --> 00:31:48.200
  • TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:31:49.030 --> 00:31:52.030
  • BECAUSE WHETHER YOU KNOW IT
  • 00:31:52.030 --> 00:31:52.260
  • OR NOT,
  • 00:31:52.260 --> 00:31:53.110
  • WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:31:53.110 --> 00:31:54.160
  • RIGHT NOW EACH AND EVERY ONE
  • 00:31:54.160 --> 00:31:56.000
  • OF US ARE WORKING ON
  • 00:31:56.000 --> 00:31:57.240
  • OUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:31:57.240 --> 00:31:58.280
  • YOU SAY, "WELL, I'M SINGLE."
  • 00:31:58.280 --> 00:32:00.080
  • DON'T WORRY;
  • 00:32:00.080 --> 00:32:00.240
  • YOU'RE STILL WORKING ON
  • 00:32:00.240 --> 00:32:01.250
  • YOUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:32:01.250 --> 00:32:04.140
  • YOU'RE EITHER DOING GOOD WORK,
  • 00:32:04.140 --> 00:32:05.280
  • GETTING READY TO BE
  • 00:32:05.280 --> 00:32:06.230
  • A GOOD SPOUSE;
  • 00:32:06.230 --> 00:32:07.190
  • OR YOU'RE DOING BAD WORK,
  • 00:32:07.190 --> 00:32:09.000
  • GETTING READY TO BE A PROBLEM
  • 00:32:09.000 --> 00:32:10.130
  • FOR SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:32:10.190 --> 00:32:13.190
  • SINGLE PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:32:13.190 --> 00:32:14.120
  • "I'M WAITING FOR MARRIAGE
  • 00:32:14.120 --> 00:32:15.110
  • TO COMPLETE ME."
  • 00:32:15.110 --> 00:32:16.240
  • BELIEVE ME,
  • 00:32:16.240 --> 00:32:17.220
  • JERRY MCGUIRE LIED.
  • 00:32:17.220 --> 00:32:20.190
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:32:20.190 --> 00:32:23.010
  • IF YOU ARE A BROKEN PERSON
  • 00:32:23.010 --> 00:32:24.250
  • BEFORE YOU GET MARRIED,
  • 00:32:24.250 --> 00:32:26.100
  • MARRIAGE IS NOT GOING TO FIX
  • 00:32:26.100 --> 00:32:27.240
  • YOUR BROKENNESS.
  • 00:32:27.240 --> 00:32:28.250
  • IT'S JUST GOING TO BREAK DOWN
  • 00:32:28.250 --> 00:32:30.010
  • WHAT'S ALREADY BROKE.
  • 00:32:30.010 --> 00:32:31.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:32:31.240 --> 00:32:33.060
  • SO WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THIS
  • 00:32:33.060 --> 00:32:34.050
  • MESSAGE TODAY ABOUT MARRIAGE,
  • 00:32:34.050 --> 00:32:36.100
  • DON'T TUNE ME OUT
  • 00:32:36.100 --> 00:32:37.260
  • BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE A RING
  • 00:32:37.260 --> 00:32:38.290
  • ON YOUR FINGER.
  • 00:32:38.290 --> 00:32:39.270
  • RECOGNIZE THAT THESE PRINCIPLES
  • 00:32:39.270 --> 00:32:41.240
  • ARE REQUIRED OF ALL OF US.
  • 00:32:41.240 --> 00:32:44.110
  • SOME OF YOU SAY,
  • 00:32:44.110 --> 00:32:44.230
  • "WELL I'VE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:32:44.230 --> 00:32:45.160
  • 40 YEARS."
  • 00:32:45.160 --> 00:32:46.160
  • HALLELUJAH.
  • 00:32:46.160 --> 00:32:47.110
  • YOU HAVE THE SECRET TO HELPING
  • 00:32:47.150 --> 00:32:50.150
  • OTHERS SUCCEED
  • 00:32:50.150 --> 00:32:52.020
  • IN THEIR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:32:52.020 --> 00:32:54.040
  • DON'T TUNE ME OUT
  • 00:32:54.040 --> 00:32:55.170
  • BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU'VE
  • 00:32:55.170 --> 00:32:56.070
  • ALREADY GOT THIS THING FIXED.
  • 00:32:56.070 --> 00:32:58.020
  • YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE
  • 00:32:58.020 --> 00:32:59.210
  • WHO NEED YOUR HELP
  • 00:32:59.210 --> 00:33:00.200
  • GETTING THINGS FIXED.
  • 00:33:00.200 --> 00:33:02.270
  • SO MAKE YOURSELF AVAILABLE
  • 00:33:02.270 --> 00:33:04.020
  • TO THEM.
  • 00:33:04.020 --> 00:33:05.200
  • BUT WE'RE GOING TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:33:05.200 --> 00:33:07.020
  • THROUGH NEHEMIAH'S LIFE,
  • 00:33:07.020 --> 00:33:08.090
  • THE PRINCIPLES THAT GOD WANTS
  • 00:33:08.090 --> 00:33:09.250
  • US TO APPLY TO OUR LIFE.
  • 00:33:09.250 --> 00:33:11.200
  • BUT THE FIRST PRINCIPLE IS
  • 00:33:11.200 --> 00:33:13.090
  • WE HAVE GOT TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:33:14.000 --> 00:33:17.000
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:33:17.000 --> 00:33:17.280
  • GOOD WORK.
  • 00:33:17.280 --> 00:33:20.040
  • BECAUSE IF WE DON'T DO
  • 00:33:20.040 --> 00:33:21.090
  • GOOD WORK,
  • 00:33:21.090 --> 00:33:21.280
  • WE'RE GOING TO TEAR DOWN
  • 00:33:21.280 --> 00:33:23.040
  • INSTEAD OF BUILD UP.
  • 00:33:23.040 --> 00:33:25.010
  • WE'RE GOING TO USE OUR WORDS,
  • 00:33:25.010 --> 00:33:26.170
  • NOT TO ENCOURAGE,
  • 00:33:26.170 --> 00:33:27.170
  • BUT TO CREATE BITTERNESS
  • 00:33:27.170 --> 00:33:29.020
  • AND STRIFE.
  • 00:33:29.020 --> 00:33:30.100
  • WE'RE GOING TO WEAKEN
  • 00:33:30.100 --> 00:33:31.140
  • RATHER THAN STRENGTHEN
  • 00:33:31.140 --> 00:33:32.280
  • THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT GOD
  • 00:33:32.280 --> 00:33:34.050
  • HAS GIVEN US.
  • 00:33:34.050 --> 00:33:35.240
  • WHEN WE COMMIT OURSELVES
  • 00:33:35.240 --> 00:33:36.270
  • TO DOING GOOD WORK,
  • 00:33:36.270 --> 00:33:38.100
  • WE GIVE OUR MARRIAGES
  • 00:33:38.100 --> 00:33:39.270
  • THE PRIORITY THAT THEY DESERVE.
  • 00:33:39.270 --> 00:33:42.220
  • THE NATIONAL HEALTH AND SCIENCE
  • 00:33:42.220 --> 00:33:43.240
  • CENTER DID A STUDY.
  • 00:33:43.240 --> 00:33:45.020
  • AND IT SAID THAT 80%
  • 00:33:45.020 --> 00:33:46.180
  • OF MARRIED COUPLES TODAY
  • 00:33:46.180 --> 00:33:48.020
  • WILL NOT CELEBRATE
  • 00:33:48.020 --> 00:33:49.160
  • THEIR 20TH ANNIVERSARY.
  • 00:33:49.160 --> 00:33:52.130
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:33:52.130 --> 00:33:54.150
  • WHEN WE GATHER AT A WEDDING,
  • 00:33:54.150 --> 00:33:55.280
  • DO WE TOAST THE BRIDE AND GROOM
  • 00:33:55.280 --> 00:33:58.030
  • BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:33:58.030 --> 00:33:59.000
  • FOR THE NEXT 19 YEARS,
  • 00:33:59.000 --> 00:34:00.180
  • THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE
  • 00:34:00.180 --> 00:34:01.110
  • EACH OTHER MISERABLE?
  • 00:34:01.110 --> 00:34:03.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:34:03.050 --> 00:34:04.090
  • NO.
  • 00:34:04.090 --> 00:34:06.040
  • WE TOAST THEIR POTENTIAL.
  • 00:34:06.040 --> 00:34:08.280
  • WE TOAST WHAT WE BELIEVE
  • 00:34:08.280 --> 00:34:10.140
  • WE SEE IN THEIR FUTURE.
  • 00:34:10.140 --> 00:34:12.020
  • WE TALK ABOUT THE GOOD THINGS
  • 00:34:12.020 --> 00:34:13.150
  • THAT ARE TO COME.
  • 00:34:13.150 --> 00:34:14.270
  • WE DON'T FLIP A COIN AND SAY,
  • 00:34:14.270 --> 00:34:16.060
  • "WHICH ONE WILL YOU BE?
  • 00:34:16.060 --> 00:34:17.100
  • DIVORCED OR TOGETHER?"
  • 00:34:17.100 --> 00:34:20.050
  • THE THING THAT REQUIRES
  • 00:34:20.050 --> 00:34:21.220
  • YOUR MARRIAGE TO CONTINUE IS
  • 00:34:21.220 --> 00:34:23.180
  • YOUR WILLINGNESS TO CONTINUE
  • 00:34:23.180 --> 00:34:25.090
  • TO DO GOOD WORKS.
  • 00:34:25.090 --> 00:34:26.120
  • WHEN PEOPLE STOP AND THEY SEE
  • 00:34:26.120 --> 00:34:27.230
  • ALL OF THE DAMAGE THAT'S BEEN
  • 00:34:27.230 --> 00:34:28.270
  • DONE IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:34:28.270 --> 00:34:30.130
  • RATHER THAN START TO REBUILD
  • 00:34:30.130 --> 00:34:32.030
  • THE BROKEN BARRIER
  • 00:34:32.030 --> 00:34:33.000
  • OF THEIR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:34:33.000 --> 00:34:33.290
  • THEY THINK IT'S JUST EASIER
  • 00:34:33.290 --> 00:34:35.020
  • TO START OVER WITH A BRAND NEW
  • 00:34:35.020 --> 00:34:36.130
  • CONSTRUCTION COMPANY.
  • 00:34:36.160 --> 00:34:39.160
  • BUT GUESS WHAT THEY FIND
  • 00:34:39.160 --> 00:34:40.100
  • WHEN THEY GET THERE?
  • 00:34:40.100 --> 00:34:41.200
  • MORE WORK.
  • 00:34:42.140 --> 00:34:45.140
  • WE'VE GOT TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:34:45.140 --> 00:34:47.190
  • AND NEHEMIAH GIVES US
  • 00:34:47.190 --> 00:34:48.220
  • PRINCIPLES FOR DOING GOOD WORK.
  • 00:34:48.220 --> 00:34:50.230
  • AND THE FIRST PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:34:50.230 --> 00:34:51.240
  • HE GIVES US GOES RIGHT BACK
  • 00:34:51.240 --> 00:34:53.090
  • TO TALKING TO SINGLE PEOPLE,
  • 00:34:53.090 --> 00:34:54.250
  • AND THAT IS THIS;
  • 00:34:54.250 --> 00:34:55.220
  • BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE WORK,
  • 00:34:55.220 --> 00:34:57.040
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A PERMIT.
  • 00:34:57.270 --> 00:35:00.290
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:35:00.290 --> 00:35:03.240
  • NEHEMIAH IS THE CUPBEARER
  • 00:35:03.240 --> 00:35:05.280
  • FOR KING ARTAXERXES.
  • 00:35:05.280 --> 00:35:08.040
  • NOW THESE MIGHT SOUND LIKE
  • 00:35:08.040 --> 00:35:09.030
  • INSIGNIFICANT NAMES.
  • 00:35:09.030 --> 00:35:10.050
  • BUT IN THEIR DAY,
  • 00:35:10.050 --> 00:35:11.110
  • THEY WERE VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:35:11.110 --> 00:35:12.120
  • WHY?
  • 00:35:12.120 --> 00:35:12.240
  • BECAUSE KING ARTAXERXES WAS
  • 00:35:12.240 --> 00:35:14.200
  • THE RULER OF THE KNOWN WORLD.
  • 00:35:14.200 --> 00:35:16.100
  • HE WAS THE KING IN BABYLON.
  • 00:35:16.100 --> 00:35:17.240
  • AND BABYLON HAD CONQUERED
  • 00:35:17.240 --> 00:35:19.020
  • PRETTY MUCH ALL
  • 00:35:19.020 --> 00:35:19.220
  • OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD.
  • 00:35:19.220 --> 00:35:20.220
  • NEHEMIAH STOOD IN FRONT OF HIM
  • 00:35:20.220 --> 00:35:22.240
  • ON A DAILY BASIS
  • 00:35:22.240 --> 00:35:24.000
  • AS HIS CUPBEARER.
  • 00:35:24.000 --> 00:35:25.290
  • WHEN YOU'RE A CUPBEARER,
  • 00:35:25.290 --> 00:35:27.040
  • YOU HAVE GOT A PRETTY PATHETIC
  • 00:35:27.040 --> 00:35:28.270
  • EXISTENCE.
  • 00:35:28.270 --> 00:35:30.170
  • AND THE REASON YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:35:30.170 --> 00:35:31.090
  • A PATHETIC EXISTENCE
  • 00:35:31.090 --> 00:35:32.150
  • IS BECAUSE YOUR JOB IS
  • 00:35:32.150 --> 00:35:33.240
  • TO BRING THE KING HIS WINE.
  • 00:35:33.240 --> 00:35:35.160
  • AND YOUR PURPOSE IS NOT TO BE
  • 00:35:35.160 --> 00:35:37.080
  • THE SOMMELIER THAT TELLS HIM
  • 00:35:37.080 --> 00:35:38.260
  • ALL OF THE WONDERFUL FLAVORS
  • 00:35:38.260 --> 00:35:39.290
  • HE'S ABOUT TO ENJOY.
  • 00:35:39.290 --> 00:35:42.120
  • YOUR JOB IS TO SIP THE WINE
  • 00:35:42.120 --> 00:35:44.150
  • BEFORE THE KING DOES
  • 00:35:44.150 --> 00:35:45.220
  • SO THAT IF ANYBODY'S TRYING
  • 00:35:45.220 --> 00:35:46.280
  • TO POISON THE KING,
  • 00:35:46.280 --> 00:35:48.080
  • YOU DIE.
  • 00:35:48.080 --> 00:35:49.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:35:49.280 --> 00:35:51.290
  • SO NEHEMIAH KNOWS THAT
  • 00:35:51.290 --> 00:35:53.150
  • WITH HIS NEXT SIP,
  • 00:35:53.150 --> 00:35:54.230
  • HE COULD TAKE HIS FINAL TRIP.
  • 00:35:55.050 --> 00:35:58.050
  • NOW I KNOW SOME OF YOU THINK
  • 00:35:58.050 --> 00:35:59.030
  • YOU'VE GOT STRESSFUL
  • 00:35:59.030 --> 00:36:00.070
  • WORK ENVIRONMENTS,
  • 00:36:00.070 --> 00:36:01.040
  • BUT THINK ABOUT HIS JOB.
  • 00:36:01.040 --> 00:36:03.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:36:03.120 --> 00:36:04.280
  • IF NEHEMIAH DIES,
  • 00:36:04.280 --> 00:36:06.070
  • THEY JUST DRAG HIM OUT AND THEY
  • 00:36:06.070 --> 00:36:07.240
  • BRING IN A BRAND NEW CUPBEARER.
  • 00:36:08.060 --> 00:36:11.060
  • NOT ONLY IS HIS JOB STRESSFUL,
  • 00:36:11.060 --> 00:36:12.220
  • BUT THE MEN HE'S WORKING FOR
  • 00:36:12.220 --> 00:36:14.030
  • IS TEMPERAMENTAL.
  • 00:36:14.030 --> 00:36:15.000
  • KING ARTAXERXES IS NOT KNOWN
  • 00:36:15.000 --> 00:36:16.290
  • FOR BEING A MILD-MANNERED
  • 00:36:16.290 --> 00:36:18.040
  • KIND OF GUY.
  • 00:36:18.040 --> 00:36:19.140
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT,
  • 00:36:19.140 --> 00:36:20.060
  • ONE OF THE EDICTS THAT
  • 00:36:20.060 --> 00:36:21.100
  • ARTAXERXES WROTE IS RECORDED
  • 00:36:21.100 --> 00:36:23.080
  • IN THE BOOK OF EZRA.
  • 00:36:23.080 --> 00:36:24.160
  • AND IN THE BOOK OF EZRA,
  • 00:36:24.160 --> 00:36:25.190
  • HE WRITES IN 7:26,
  • 00:36:25.190 --> 00:36:28.140
  • "WHOEVER DOES NOT OBSERVE
  • 00:36:28.140 --> 00:36:29.200
  • THE LAW OF THE KING,
  • 00:36:29.200 --> 00:36:30.220
  • LET JUDGMENT BE BROUGHT UPON
  • 00:36:30.220 --> 00:36:32.060
  • HIM SPEEDILY,
  • 00:36:32.060 --> 00:36:33.110
  • WHETHER IT BE DEATH,
  • 00:36:33.110 --> 00:36:34.170
  • BANISHMENT,
  • 00:36:34.170 --> 00:36:35.050
  • CONFISCATION OF GOODS,
  • 00:36:35.050 --> 00:36:36.090
  • OR IMPRISONMENT."
  • 00:36:36.090 --> 00:36:37.050
  • HOW MANY OF YOU SEE A LITTLE
  • 00:36:37.050 --> 00:36:38.060
  • BIT OF TYPE A IN ARTAXERXES?
  • 00:36:38.060 --> 00:36:40.200
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:36:40.200 --> 00:36:42.280
  • HERE'S NEHEMIAH'S PROBLEM;
  • 00:36:42.280 --> 00:36:45.020
  • IN CHAPTER 1,
  • 00:36:45.020 --> 00:36:46.000
  • HIS BROTHER COMES
  • 00:36:46.000 --> 00:36:47.030
  • FROM JERUSALEM,
  • 00:36:47.030 --> 00:36:47.260
  • HIS HOMETOWN,
  • 00:36:47.260 --> 00:36:48.210
  • AND HE TELLS HIM,
  • 00:36:48.210 --> 00:36:49.180
  • "THE WALLS ARE BROKEN DOWN.
  • 00:36:49.180 --> 00:36:51.030
  • THE GATES ARE BURNED."
  • 00:36:51.030 --> 00:36:52.290
  • IT BREAKS NEHEMIAH'S HEART.
  • 00:36:52.290 --> 00:36:54.250
  • HE GOES BEFORE THE LORD
  • 00:36:54.250 --> 00:36:55.250
  • WITH FASTING AND PRAYER.
  • 00:36:55.250 --> 00:36:56.250
  • HE ASKS THE LORD TO DO
  • 00:36:56.250 --> 00:36:58.250
  • SOMETHING ON HIS BEHALF.
  • 00:36:58.250 --> 00:37:00.130
  • AND IF HIS OUTSIDE SITUATION
  • 00:37:00.130 --> 00:37:02.050
  • WASN'T BAD ENOUGH,
  • 00:37:02.050 --> 00:37:03.050
  • NEHEMIAH HAS GOT TO GO TO WORK.
  • 00:37:03.140 --> 00:37:06.140
  • SO HE GETS UP
  • 00:37:06.140 --> 00:37:07.020
  • AND HE GOES BEFORE THE KING.
  • 00:37:07.020 --> 00:37:08.150
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:37:08.150 --> 00:37:09.000
  • "I TOOK THE KING HIS WINE
  • 00:37:09.000 --> 00:37:10.230
  • AND I HAD NEVER BEEN SAD
  • 00:37:10.230 --> 00:37:12.200
  • IN HIS PRESENCE BEFORE."
  • 00:37:12.200 --> 00:37:14.020
  • NOW THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
  • 00:37:14.020 --> 00:37:15.050
  • WHY?
  • 00:37:15.050 --> 00:37:15.240
  • BECAUSE IF NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:37:15.240 --> 00:37:17.010
  • THE CUPBEARER, LOOKS SAD,
  • 00:37:17.010 --> 00:37:18.210
  • ARTAXERXES WONDERS
  • 00:37:18.210 --> 00:37:20.020
  • WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE DRINK.
  • 00:37:20.230 --> 00:37:23.230
  • AND IF ARTAXERXES
  • 00:37:23.230 --> 00:37:24.240
  • SUSPECTS THAT NEHEMIAH
  • 00:37:24.240 --> 00:37:27.060
  • IS A PART OF THE CONSPIRACY,
  • 00:37:27.060 --> 00:37:28.270
  • HE'D JUST HAVE HIM KILLED.
  • 00:37:28.270 --> 00:37:31.060
  • SO GOING TO WORK WITH A BAD
  • 00:37:31.060 --> 00:37:32.100
  • ATTITUDE FOR ARTAXERXES
  • 00:37:32.100 --> 00:37:34.030
  • DOESN'T GET YOU TIME OFF;
  • 00:37:34.030 --> 00:37:35.230
  • IT GETS YOUR HEAD OFF.
  • 00:37:35.230 --> 00:37:37.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:37:37.250 --> 00:37:38.130
  • AND XERXES LOOKS AT NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:37:38.130 --> 00:37:40.080
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:37:40.080 --> 00:37:40.230
  • "YOU HAVE NEVER HAD
  • 00:37:40.230 --> 00:37:41.200
  • A SAD COUNTENANCE BEFORE.
  • 00:37:41.200 --> 00:37:43.170
  • ARE YOU SICK
  • 00:37:43.170 --> 00:37:45.170
  • OR IS THIS SORROW OF HEART?"
  • 00:37:45.170 --> 00:37:48.020
  • AND NEHEMIAH SAYS,
  • 00:37:48.020 --> 00:37:48.220
  • "I BECAME DREADFULLY AFRAID."
  • 00:37:49.130 --> 00:37:52.130
  • AND NEHEMIAH GIVES HIM
  • 00:37:52.130 --> 00:37:53.100
  • THE ANSWER.
  • 00:37:53.100 --> 00:37:53.240
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:37:53.240 --> 00:37:54.110
  • "THE GATES OF MY CITY
  • 00:37:54.110 --> 00:37:55.050
  • ARE BURNED.
  • 00:37:55.050 --> 00:37:55.240
  • THE WALLS HAVE BEEN TORN DOWN."
  • 00:37:55.260 --> 00:37:58.260
  • AND XERXES RESPONDS.
  • 00:37:59.160 --> 00:38:02.180
  • HE SAYS, "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST?"
  • 00:38:03.070 --> 00:38:06.070
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:38:06.070 --> 00:38:07.090
  • "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST?"
  • 00:38:07.090 --> 00:38:09.140
  • NOW THAT'S A SERMON
  • 00:38:09.140 --> 00:38:10.080
  • FOR ANOTHER DAY.
  • 00:38:10.080 --> 00:38:11.020
  • WHEN THE KING ASKS YOU,
  • 00:38:11.020 --> 00:38:12.250
  • "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST,"
  • 00:38:12.250 --> 00:38:14.090
  • DON'T WASTE IT.
  • 00:38:15.050 --> 00:38:18.050
  • BUT NEHEMIAH LOOKS AT HIM
  • 00:38:18.050 --> 00:38:19.090
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:38:19.090 --> 00:38:20.000
  • "I NEED TWO LETTERS.
  • 00:38:20.000 --> 00:38:22.170
  • I NEED A LETTER THAT I CAN TAKE
  • 00:38:22.170 --> 00:38:24.040
  • WITH ME TO THE GOVERNORS
  • 00:38:24.040 --> 00:38:25.160
  • IN JUDEA SO THAT
  • 00:38:25.160 --> 00:38:26.210
  • WHEN I REBUILD THESE WALLS,
  • 00:38:26.210 --> 00:38:28.010
  • THEY KNOW I'M DOING SO
  • 00:38:28.010 --> 00:38:29.070
  • WITH YOUR BLESSING.
  • 00:38:29.070 --> 00:38:30.050
  • AND I NEED A LETTER
  • 00:38:30.050 --> 00:38:30.270
  • THAT I CAN TAKE TO ASAPH,
  • 00:38:30.270 --> 00:38:32.120
  • THE KEEPER OF THE FOREST,
  • 00:38:32.120 --> 00:38:33.190
  • SO THAT I CAN GET THE TIMBER
  • 00:38:33.190 --> 00:38:34.290
  • THAT'S NECESSARY TO REBUILD
  • 00:38:34.290 --> 00:38:36.070
  • THE GATES."
  • 00:38:36.070 --> 00:38:36.270
  • YOU SEE NEHEMIAH KNEW
  • 00:38:36.270 --> 00:38:38.190
  • WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE BEFORE
  • 00:38:38.190 --> 00:38:39.290
  • CONSTRUCTION COULD BEGIN.
  • 00:38:39.290 --> 00:38:41.120
  • HE HAD TO GET A PERMIT.
  • 00:38:42.020 --> 00:38:45.020
  • SO HERE'S WHAT I'M SAYING
  • 00:38:45.020 --> 00:38:46.000
  • TO SINGLE PEOPLE;
  • 00:38:46.000 --> 00:38:47.060
  • BEFORE YOU MOVE IN AND START
  • 00:38:47.060 --> 00:38:49.040
  • PLAYING HOUSE WITH SOMEBODY,
  • 00:38:49.040 --> 00:38:50.270
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET A PERMIT.
  • 00:38:51.050 --> 00:38:54.050
  • YOU HAVE GOT TO GET PERMISSION
  • 00:38:54.050 --> 00:38:56.060
  • FROM GOD ALMIGHTY
  • 00:38:56.060 --> 00:38:57.110
  • TO BE MARRIED.
  • 00:38:57.110 --> 00:38:58.200
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:38:58.200 --> 00:39:01.080
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:39:01.080 --> 00:39:02.080
  • "UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:39:02.080 --> 00:39:03.240
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:39:03.240 --> 00:39:04.230
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN
  • 00:39:04.230 --> 00:39:06.050
  • WHO BUILD IT."
  • 00:39:06.050 --> 00:39:06.220
  • WHEN IT COMES TO MARRIAGE,
  • 00:39:06.220 --> 00:39:08.010
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A PERMIT
  • 00:39:08.010 --> 00:39:09.200
  • BEFORE YOU START BUILDING.
  • 00:39:09.200 --> 00:39:11.070
  • ONE OF THE PROBLEMS
  • 00:39:11.070 --> 00:39:12.040
  • THAT WE HAVE IN AMERICA TODAY
  • 00:39:12.040 --> 00:39:13.230
  • IS THAT 49% OF COUPLES
  • 00:39:13.230 --> 00:39:15.250
  • IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:39:15.250 --> 00:39:17.010
  • ARE LIVING TOGETHER
  • 00:39:17.010 --> 00:39:18.020
  • OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:39:18.020 --> 00:39:20.290
  • WHEN THOSE COUPLES GET MARRIED,
  • 00:39:20.290 --> 00:39:22.150
  • ONLY 60% OF THEM STAY TOGETHER
  • 00:39:22.150 --> 00:39:24.210
  • FOR THREE YEARS.
  • 00:39:24.210 --> 00:39:25.210
  • WHY?
  • 00:39:25.210 --> 00:39:27.070
  • BECAUSE WHEN THEY'RE LIVING
  • 00:39:27.070 --> 00:39:28.010
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:39:28.010 --> 00:39:28.230
  • IT'S SELFISH LOVE;
  • 00:39:28.230 --> 00:39:30.030
  • AND WHEN THEY'RE MARRIED
  • 00:39:30.030 --> 00:39:30.280
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:39:30.280 --> 00:39:31.150
  • IT'S SACRIFICIAL LOVE.
  • 00:39:31.150 --> 00:39:33.280
  • AND YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH
  • 00:39:33.280 --> 00:39:35.130
  • OF THOSE IN THE SAME SENTENCE.
  • 00:39:35.130 --> 00:39:38.000
  • BIBLICAL MARRIAGE IS BUILT
  • 00:39:38.000 --> 00:39:39.060
  • UPON SACRIFICE,
  • 00:39:39.060 --> 00:39:40.190
  • LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:39:40.190 --> 00:39:42.030
  • SELFISH RELATIONSHIPS ARE BUILT
  • 00:39:42.030 --> 00:39:44.140
  • ON WHAT YOU DO PLEASES ME.
  • 00:39:44.140 --> 00:39:47.080
  • HERE'S WHAT THE BIBLE HAS
  • 00:39:47.080 --> 00:39:48.050
  • TO SAY ABOUT IT.
  • 00:39:48.050 --> 00:39:48.250
  • EXODUS 20:14: "THOU SHALT NOT
  • 00:39:48.250 --> 00:39:51.150
  • COMMIT ADULTERY."
  • 00:39:51.150 --> 00:39:53.090
  • THAT'S STILL IN THE BOOK,
  • 00:39:53.090 --> 00:39:54.210
  • FOLKS.
  • 00:39:54.210 --> 00:39:56.120
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE."
  • 00:39:56.120 --> 00:39:57.240
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:39:57.240 --> 00:39:58.240
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE."
  • 00:39:58.240 --> 00:40:00.150
  • WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?
  • 00:40:00.150 --> 00:40:01.150
  • BECAUSE A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE,
  • 00:40:01.150 --> 00:40:02.150
  • WHO ARE LIVING TOGETHER,
  • 00:40:02.150 --> 00:40:03.090
  • SAY, "WHAT'S THE POINT
  • 00:40:03.090 --> 00:40:04.090
  • OF GETTING MARRIED?"
  • 00:40:04.090 --> 00:40:05.100
  • GOD SAID,
  • 00:40:05.100 --> 00:40:06.070
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE.
  • 00:40:06.180 --> 00:40:09.180
  • AMONG ALL,
  • 00:40:09.180 --> 00:40:10.120
  • THE BED OF MARRIAGE
  • 00:40:10.120 --> 00:40:11.080
  • IS UNDEFILED."
  • 00:40:11.080 --> 00:40:12.140
  • BUT HERE'S HOW THE REST
  • 00:40:12.140 --> 00:40:13.050
  • OF THE VERSE READS.
  • 00:40:13.050 --> 00:40:14.020
  • "FORNICATORS AND ADULTERERS,
  • 00:40:14.020 --> 00:40:15.230
  • GOD WILL JUDGE."
  • 00:40:16.000 --> 00:40:19.000
  • THOSE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:40:19.000 --> 00:40:19.270
  • ENGAGED IN SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:40:19.270 --> 00:40:21.210
  • OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:40:21.210 --> 00:40:22.210
  • THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT
  • 00:40:22.210 --> 00:40:24.110
  • THE ONLY RELATIONSHIP THAT GOD
  • 00:40:24.110 --> 00:40:26.000
  • ENDORSES FOR TWO PEOPLE
  • 00:40:26.000 --> 00:40:27.100
  • TO SHARE A BEDROOM IN IS
  • 00:40:27.100 --> 00:40:29.000
  • THE RELATIONSHIP OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:40:29.000 --> 00:40:30.200
  • THAT'S HIS POLICY.
  • 00:40:30.200 --> 00:40:32.030
  • AND BEFORE YOU BEGIN
  • 00:40:32.030 --> 00:40:33.060
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:40:33.060 --> 00:40:34.070
  • YOU NEED HIS PERMISSION.
  • 00:40:34.070 --> 00:40:36.190
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:40:36.190 --> 00:40:37.200
  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:40:37.200 --> 00:40:39.040
  • WHAT GOD'S WORD HAS TO SAY

  • ABOUT YOUR FINANCES?

  • IN SCRIPTURE

  • TO TRY HIM.
  • 00:40:46.110 --> 00:40:47.120

  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: SO NEHEMIAH

  • WANTS TWO PERMITS.
  • 00:41:52.190 --> 00:41:53.210
  • AND YOU NEED TWO PERMITS.
  • 00:41:53.210 --> 00:41:56.150
  • ONE,
  • 00:41:56.150 --> 00:41:57.030
  • YOU NEED A PERMIT
  • 00:41:57.030 --> 00:41:57.230
  • FROM THE KING.
  • 00:41:57.230 --> 00:41:58.250
  • YOU NEED PERMISSION FROM GOD.
  • 00:41:58.250 --> 00:42:01.050
  • TWO,
  • 00:42:01.050 --> 00:42:01.250
  • YOU NEED PERMISSION FROM
  • 00:42:01.250 --> 00:42:03.000
  • THE GIRL'S SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY.
  • 00:42:03.010 --> 00:42:06.010
  • DON'T SHOW UP AT HIS HOUSE
  • 00:42:06.010 --> 00:42:08.130
  • AND INTRODUCE YOURSELF FOR
  • 00:42:08.130 --> 00:42:09.240
  • THE FIRST TIME AS HER FIANCE.
  • 00:42:10.100 --> 00:42:13.100
  • YOU ASK THAT MAN FOR HER HAND.
  • 00:42:14.120 --> 00:42:17.120
  • WHY?
  • 00:42:17.120 --> 00:42:18.040
  • BECAUSE HE IS THE REASON
  • 00:42:18.040 --> 00:42:19.120
  • SHE'S HERE.
  • 00:42:19.120 --> 00:42:21.110
  • YOU DON'T GET HER WITHOUT HIM.
  • 00:42:21.260 --> 00:42:24.260
  • AND I'M SAYING THIS,
  • 00:42:24.260 --> 00:42:25.260
  • NOT ONLY AS A YOUNG MAN
  • 00:42:25.260 --> 00:42:27.020
  • WHO ASKED FOR MY WIFE'S HAND,
  • 00:42:27.020 --> 00:42:29.000
  • BUT I'M SAYING THIS, AS A MAN,
  • 00:42:29.000 --> 00:42:30.220
  • WHO HAS TWO DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:42:30.220 --> 00:42:31.230
  • THAT WILL REMOVE YOUR HAND FROM
  • 00:42:31.230 --> 00:42:33.080
  • YOUR BODY IF YOU DON'T DO THAT.
  • 00:42:33.080 --> 00:42:36.020
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:42:41.090 --> 00:42:44.090
  • THE SAME WAY THAT NEHEMIAH GETS
  • 00:42:44.090 --> 00:42:45.260
  • TWO PERMITS THAT ALLOWS HIM
  • 00:42:46.000 --> 00:42:49.000
  • TO MAKE PROGRESS;
  • 00:42:49.000 --> 00:42:50.010
  • YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE SURE THAT
  • 00:42:50.010 --> 00:42:51.240
  • YOU'VE GOT GOD'S PERMISSION.
  • 00:42:51.240 --> 00:42:53.280
  • "UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:42:53.280 --> 00:42:55.040
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:42:55.040 --> 00:42:55.200
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN
  • 00:42:55.200 --> 00:42:56.150
  • WHO BUILD IT."
  • 00:42:56.150 --> 00:42:57.260
  • PEOPLE WHO'VE BEEN LIVING
  • 00:42:57.260 --> 00:42:58.190
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:42:58.190 --> 00:42:59.000
  • SAY, "WELL WE'VE BEEN DOING
  • 00:42:59.000 --> 00:42:59.260
  • THIS FOR A LONG TIME."
  • 00:42:59.260 --> 00:43:00.210
  • LET ME GIVE YOU SOME FREE
  • 00:43:00.210 --> 00:43:01.190
  • AND SIMPLE ADVICE;
  • 00:43:01.190 --> 00:43:02.240
  • STOP IT.
  • 00:43:02.240 --> 00:43:05.230
  • STOP IT.
  • 00:43:05.230 --> 00:43:06.180
  • YOUR BEHAVIOR DOES NOT CAUSE
  • 00:43:06.180 --> 00:43:08.040
  • GOD TO AMEND OR ALTER
  • 00:43:08.040 --> 00:43:10.040
  • HIS POLICIES.
  • 00:43:10.040 --> 00:43:11.080
  • YOU CORRECT YOURSELF
  • 00:43:11.080 --> 00:43:12.270
  • ACCORDING TO HIS WORD.
  • 00:43:12.270 --> 00:43:14.040
  • HIS WORD DOES NOT CORRECT
  • 00:43:14.040 --> 00:43:15.170
  • ITSELF TO MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE.
  • 00:43:15.170 --> 00:43:18.050
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:43:18.050 --> 00:43:19.020
  • PRINCIPLE TWO,
  • 00:43:19.020 --> 00:43:21.130
  • JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:43:21.130 --> 00:43:22.150
  • PERMISSION DOESN'T MEAN YOU GET
  • 00:43:22.150 --> 00:43:24.020
  • A DAY OFF.
  • 00:43:24.020 --> 00:43:26.110
  • NEHEMIAH GOT PERMISSION
  • 00:43:26.110 --> 00:43:27.270
  • TO GO CUT THE TIMBER.
  • 00:43:27.270 --> 00:43:29.040
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:43:29.040 --> 00:43:29.280
  • THAT MEANS HE HAD TO GO
  • 00:43:29.280 --> 00:43:30.270
  • TO WORK.
  • 00:43:30.270 --> 00:43:32.020
  • NEHEMIAH GOT PERMISSION
  • 00:43:32.020 --> 00:43:33.060
  • TO REBUILD THE WALLS.
  • 00:43:33.060 --> 00:43:34.090
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:43:34.090 --> 00:43:34.290
  • THAT MEANS HE HAD TO GO
  • 00:43:34.290 --> 00:43:36.020
  • TO WORK.
  • 00:43:36.020 --> 00:43:37.040
  • HE DIDN'T GET THE PERMITS
  • 00:43:37.040 --> 00:43:38.140
  • AND OUTSOURCE THE WORK.
  • 00:43:38.140 --> 00:43:39.250
  • HE GOT THE PERMITS AND HE WENT
  • 00:43:39.250 --> 00:43:41.110
  • TO GO DO THE WORK.
  • 00:43:41.110 --> 00:43:42.260
  • THE SECOND PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:43:42.260 --> 00:43:44.010
  • NEHEMIAH TEACHES MARRIED PEOPLE
  • 00:43:44.010 --> 00:43:46.080
  • IS THAT ONCE YOU GET MARRIED,
  • 00:43:46.080 --> 00:43:48.030
  • GO TO WORK.
  • 00:43:48.030 --> 00:43:49.280
  • WHEN YOU SAY THAT I'M DATING
  • 00:43:49.280 --> 00:43:51.230
  • AND THIS IS A PREVIEW OF THINGS
  • 00:43:51.230 --> 00:43:53.130
  • TO COME,
  • 00:43:53.130 --> 00:43:54.110
  • MAKE SURE THAT WHAT COMES NEXT
  • 00:43:54.110 --> 00:43:55.280
  • IS BETTER THAN WHAT WAS.
  • 00:43:56.000 --> 00:43:59.000
  • PEOPLE WORK LIKE CRAZY
  • 00:43:59.000 --> 00:44:00.230
  • AT BEING ROMANTIC.
  • 00:44:00.230 --> 00:44:01.290
  • AND THEN WHEN THEY GET MARRIED,
  • 00:44:01.290 --> 00:44:02.290
  • IT TURNS INTO,
  • 00:44:02.290 --> 00:44:03.260
  • "HE USED TO..."
  • 00:44:03.260 --> 00:44:05.230
  • "HE USED TO BRING ME FLOWERS."
  • 00:44:05.230 --> 00:44:07.030
  • "HE USED TO WRITE ME LETTERS."
  • 00:44:07.030 --> 00:44:08.170
  • "HE USED TO TELL ME
  • 00:44:08.170 --> 00:44:09.150
  • HE LOVED ME."
  • 00:44:09.150 --> 00:44:10.110
  • "HE USED TO PICK UP THE PHONE
  • 00:44:10.110 --> 00:44:11.210
  • AND CALL ME
  • 00:44:11.210 --> 00:44:12.170
  • JUST TO HEAR ME BREATHE."
  • 00:44:12.170 --> 00:44:14.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:44:15.170 --> 00:44:18.170
  • (BREATHING DEEPLY)
  • 00:44:20.100 --> 00:44:23.100
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:44:23.100 --> 00:44:25.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:44:26.010 --> 00:44:29.010
  • NOW WHEN THE PHONE RINGS,
  • 00:44:29.010 --> 00:44:30.030
  • HE PICKS IT UP AND SAYS,
  • 00:44:30.030 --> 00:44:30.240
  • "WHAT DO YOU WANT?"
  • 00:44:30.240 --> 00:44:32.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:44:32.140 --> 00:44:34.120
  • THE THIRD PRINCIPLE
  • 00:44:34.120 --> 00:44:35.210
  • THAT NEHEMIAH TEACHES US
  • 00:44:35.210 --> 00:44:37.010
  • IS THAT WHENEVER YOU RECOGNIZE
  • 00:44:37.010 --> 00:44:38.260
  • THAT THERE'S DAMAGE,
  • 00:44:38.260 --> 00:44:40.010
  • EVALUATE YOUR PROBLEM
  • 00:44:40.010 --> 00:44:41.160
  • PRIVATELY.
  • 00:44:41.160 --> 00:44:43.170
  • YOU SEE THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:44:43.170 --> 00:44:44.150
  • THAT NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:44:44.150 --> 00:44:45.070
  • IN CHAPTER 2:11,
  • 00:44:45.070 --> 00:44:47.140
  • HE WENT TO JERUSALEM
  • 00:44:47.140 --> 00:44:48.180
  • WITH THE PERMITS.
  • 00:44:48.180 --> 00:44:51.040
  • AND BEFORE HE TOLD ANYBODY
  • 00:44:51.040 --> 00:44:53.060
  • WHY HE WAS IN TOWN,
  • 00:44:53.060 --> 00:44:54.180
  • BEFORE HE SHOWED ANYBODY
  • 00:44:54.180 --> 00:44:56.020
  • THE PERMITS,
  • 00:44:56.020 --> 00:44:56.270
  • BEFORE HE MADE IT KNOWN
  • 00:44:56.270 --> 00:44:58.010
  • THAT HIS PURPOSE WAS TO REBUILD
  • 00:44:58.010 --> 00:44:59.140
  • THE WALLS,
  • 00:44:59.140 --> 00:45:00.080
  • FOR THREE DAYS,
  • 00:45:00.080 --> 00:45:01.170
  • HE RODE AROUND AND HE SURVEYED
  • 00:45:01.170 --> 00:45:03.160
  • THE DAMAGE,
  • 00:45:03.160 --> 00:45:04.040
  • BUT HE DIDN'T SPEAK TO A SOUL.
  • 00:45:04.040 --> 00:45:07.040
  • THERE'S A LESSON THERE.
  • 00:45:07.040 --> 00:45:09.080
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:45:09.080 --> 00:45:10.250
  • THERE WILL BE SEASONS WHERE
  • 00:45:10.250 --> 00:45:12.140
  • THINGS WILL GET DIFFICULT,
  • 00:45:12.140 --> 00:45:13.180
  • AND DAMAGE AND HARM WILL COME
  • 00:45:13.180 --> 00:45:15.080
  • TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:45:15.080 --> 00:45:16.100
  • IT'S JUST PART OF LIFE.
  • 00:45:16.100 --> 00:45:17.080
  • IT'S PART OF HUMANITY.
  • 00:45:17.080 --> 00:45:18.180
  • TWO IMPERFECT PEOPLE
  • 00:45:18.180 --> 00:45:19.250
  • BEING MARRIED TO EACH OTHER,
  • 00:45:19.250 --> 00:45:21.030
  • SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:45:21.030 --> 00:45:21.280
  • THEY'RE GOING TO HURT
  • 00:45:21.280 --> 00:45:22.140
  • ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:45:22.140 --> 00:45:24.080
  • WHEN THAT HAPPENS,
  • 00:45:24.080 --> 00:45:26.020
  • SURVEY YOUR DAMAGE PRIVATELY.
  • 00:45:26.110 --> 00:45:29.110
  • DON'T TELL EVERY THIRD PERSON,
  • 00:45:29.110 --> 00:45:31.100
  • "WE'VE GOT A PROBLEM."
  • 00:45:31.100 --> 00:45:33.060
  • DON'T UPDATE YOUR FACEBOOK
  • 00:45:33.060 --> 00:45:34.210
  • STATUS WITH
  • 00:45:34.210 --> 00:45:35.110
  • "HAVE A MARRIAGE QUESTION."
  • 00:45:35.110 --> 00:45:37.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:45:37.080 --> 00:45:40.010
  • DON'T WALK INTO CHURCH
  • 00:45:40.010 --> 00:45:41.030
  • AND LOOK AT EVERY OTHER PERSON,
  • 00:45:41.030 --> 00:45:42.040
  • AND GO,
  • 00:45:42.040 --> 00:45:42.280
  • "UNSPOKEN; JUST PRAY."
  • 00:45:42.280 --> 00:45:45.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:45:45.280 --> 00:45:47.140
  • NO!
  • 00:45:47.140 --> 00:45:49.090
  • SURVEY THAT PROBLEM ALL BY
  • 00:45:49.090 --> 00:45:51.090
  • YOURSELF AND CONSIDER WHAT ROLE
  • 00:45:51.150 --> 00:45:54.150
  • AND RESPONSIBILITY YOU HAVE
  • 00:45:54.150 --> 00:45:56.130
  • IN SOLVING IT.
  • 00:45:56.130 --> 00:45:58.140
  • DON'T ASK EVERYBODY ELSE
  • 00:45:58.140 --> 00:46:00.030
  • TO HELP YOU SOLVE THAT PROBLEM.
  • 00:46:00.030 --> 00:46:01.210
  • AND THEN WHENEVER YOU GO ABOUT
  • 00:46:01.210 --> 00:46:03.100
  • SOLVING THE PROBLEM,
  • 00:46:03.100 --> 00:46:04.110
  • SOLVE IT ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:46:04.110 --> 00:46:06.190
  • CONSIDER THE STRATEGY AND
  • 00:46:06.190 --> 00:46:08.050
  • THE WISDOM OF NEHEMIAH'S PLAN.
  • 00:46:08.050 --> 00:46:09.260
  • HE DIDN'T COME TO TOWN AND TELL
  • 00:46:09.260 --> 00:46:11.210
  • ANYBODY WHY HE WAS IN TOWN.
  • 00:46:11.210 --> 00:46:13.090
  • WHY?
  • 00:46:13.090 --> 00:46:13.280
  • BECAUSE AS SOON AS HE WOULD
  • 00:46:13.280 --> 00:46:15.020
  • HAVE,
  • 00:46:15.020 --> 00:46:15.160
  • EVERYBODY WOULD HAVE HAD THEIR
  • 00:46:15.160 --> 00:46:16.220
  • OPINION ABOUT HOW TO BEST
  • 00:46:16.220 --> 00:46:18.110
  • PROCEED.
  • 00:46:18.110 --> 00:46:19.150
  • THE JEWS WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:46:19.150 --> 00:46:20.130
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD
  • 00:46:20.130 --> 00:46:21.080
  • THIS NEIGHBORHOOD FIRST."
  • 00:46:21.080 --> 00:46:22.140
  • THE PRIESTS WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:46:22.140 --> 00:46:23.180
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD THE TEMPLE
  • 00:46:23.180 --> 00:46:24.240
  • FIRST."
  • 00:46:24.240 --> 00:46:25.150
  • THE NOBLES WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:46:25.150 --> 00:46:26.180
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD THIS AREA
  • 00:46:26.180 --> 00:46:28.120
  • OF TOWN FIRST."
  • 00:46:28.120 --> 00:46:29.140
  • BUT RATHER THAN LET
  • 00:46:29.140 --> 00:46:30.070
  • EVERYBODY'S OPINION
  • 00:46:30.070 --> 00:46:31.040
  • GET INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS,
  • 00:46:31.040 --> 00:46:32.220
  • HE SURVEYED THE DAMAGE,
  • 00:46:32.220 --> 00:46:34.050
  • HE MADE A PLAN,
  • 00:46:34.050 --> 00:46:35.110
  • AND THEN HE WENT TO WORK
  • 00:46:35.110 --> 00:46:36.100
  • ON HOW TO GET THAT PLAN FIXED.
  • 00:46:36.100 --> 00:46:38.190
  • TAKE A JOURNEY OF
  • 00:46:38.190 --> 00:46:39.140
  • SELF-EXAMINATION AND UNDERSTAND
  • 00:46:39.140 --> 00:46:41.180
  • WHAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED.
  • 00:46:41.180 --> 00:46:43.030
  • ASK THE LORD TO LEAD
  • 00:46:43.030 --> 00:46:44.110
  • AND GUIDE YOU.
  • 00:46:44.110 --> 00:46:45.130
  • AND I ASSURE YOU,
  • 00:46:45.130 --> 00:46:46.110
  • HIS HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS WORD
  • 00:46:46.110 --> 00:46:48.050
  • WILL HELP YOU FIX A LOT MORE
  • 00:46:48.050 --> 00:46:49.150
  • PROBLEMS THAN THE UNQUALIFIED
  • 00:46:49.150 --> 00:46:51.190
  • EXPERTS AROUND YOU.
  • 00:46:51.210 --> 00:46:54.210
  • WHEN YOU, IN YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:46:54.210 --> 00:46:55.230
  • WALK AWAY
  • 00:46:55.230 --> 00:46:56.220
  • FROM GOD'S PRINCIPLES,
  • 00:46:56.220 --> 00:46:58.090
  • SUDDENLY OUTSIDE ATTACKS
  • 00:46:58.090 --> 00:47:00.080
  • NOW HAVE VALUE.
  • 00:47:00.080 --> 00:47:02.150
  • WHEN YOU SURVEY YOUR DAMAGE,
  • 00:47:02.150 --> 00:47:03.290
  • MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE WALKING
  • 00:47:03.290 --> 00:47:06.060
  • IN THE RIGHT PATH
  • 00:47:06.060 --> 00:47:07.260
  • OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:47:07.260 --> 00:47:09.120
  • THE FOURTH PRINCIPLE
  • 00:47:09.120 --> 00:47:10.110
  • THAT NEHEMIAH GIVES US
  • 00:47:10.110 --> 00:47:11.160
  • IS WORK WITH THOSE YOU TRUST.
  • 00:47:12.140 --> 00:47:15.140
  • NEHEMIAH SAW WHAT NEEDED
  • 00:47:15.140 --> 00:47:16.200
  • TO BE DONE.
  • 00:47:16.200 --> 00:47:17.090
  • AND HE GATHERED THE PEOPLE
  • 00:47:17.090 --> 00:47:18.190
  • AND HE TOLD THEM THE VERSES
  • 00:47:18.190 --> 00:47:20.010
  • WE READ.
  • 00:47:20.010 --> 00:47:21.080
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:47:21.080 --> 00:47:21.250
  • "YOU SEE THE DISTRESS WE'RE IN,
  • 00:47:21.250 --> 00:47:22.240
  • HOW JERUSALEM LIES WASTE.
  • 00:47:22.270 --> 00:47:25.270
  • LET US BUILD THE WALL SO THAT
  • 00:47:25.270 --> 00:47:27.140
  • WE'LL NO LONGER BE A REPROACH."
  • 00:47:27.140 --> 00:47:29.270
  • WHEN IT COMES TO REBUILDING
  • 00:47:29.270 --> 00:47:31.060
  • THE WALLS OF YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:47:31.060 --> 00:47:32.210
  • YOU NEED TO WORK WITH THOSE
  • 00:47:32.210 --> 00:47:34.010
  • YOU TRUST.
  • 00:47:34.010 --> 00:47:36.020
  • WHO ARE THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST?
  • 00:47:36.020 --> 00:47:38.240
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO BE
  • 00:47:38.240 --> 00:47:39.290
  • PEOPLE WHO TALK TO GOD
  • 00:47:39.290 --> 00:47:41.080
  • MORE THAN THEY TALK TO OTHERS.
  • 00:47:41.180 --> 00:47:44.180
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO BE
  • 00:47:44.180 --> 00:47:46.020
  • THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE
  • 00:47:46.020 --> 00:47:47.040
  • NO PERSONAL OPINION ABOUT HOW
  • 00:47:47.040 --> 00:47:49.040
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP SHOULD WORK;
  • 00:47:49.040 --> 00:47:50.150
  • THEY JUST WANT TO SEE IT
  • 00:47:50.150 --> 00:47:51.080
  • RESTORED FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:47:51.270 --> 00:47:54.270
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO
  • 00:47:54.270 --> 00:47:55.290
  • HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE THAN YOU.
  • 00:47:56.140 --> 00:47:59.140
  • DON'T ASK SOMEBODY,
  • 00:47:59.140 --> 00:48:00.250
  • WHO'S GETTING
  • 00:48:00.250 --> 00:48:01.140
  • THEIR THIRD DIVORCE,
  • 00:48:01.140 --> 00:48:02.090
  • HOW TO FIX YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:48:02.090 --> 00:48:04.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:48:04.090 --> 00:48:07.050
  • AND AS SILLY AS THAT SOUNDS,
  • 00:48:07.050 --> 00:48:08.120
  • THAT'S WHAT SOME PEOPLE DO.
  • 00:48:08.120 --> 00:48:10.210
  • PEOPLE IN THIS CONGREGATION,
  • 00:48:10.210 --> 00:48:11.240
  • WHO'VE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:48:11.240 --> 00:48:12.150
  • FOR DECADES,
  • 00:48:12.150 --> 00:48:13.130
  • NEED TO INVEST THEMSELVES
  • 00:48:13.130 --> 00:48:15.050
  • IN HELPING PEOPLE,
  • 00:48:15.050 --> 00:48:15.270
  • WHO'VE ONLY BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:48:15.270 --> 00:48:16.190
  • A FEW DAYS,
  • 00:48:16.190 --> 00:48:17.170
  • HOW TO SURVIVE THROUGH
  • 00:48:17.170 --> 00:48:18.240
  • THOSE DECADES.
  • 00:48:18.240 --> 00:48:20.210
  • THEY'RE PEOPLE YOU TRUST.
  • 00:48:20.210 --> 00:48:23.040
  • THE LAST PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:48:23.040 --> 00:48:24.020
  • NEHEMIAH SHARES WITH US IS THAT
  • 00:48:24.020 --> 00:48:25.250
  • HE KICKS THE OUTSIDERS OUT.
  • 00:48:26.250 --> 00:48:29.250
  • AS SOON AS HE BEGINS BUILDING,
  • 00:48:29.250 --> 00:48:31.250
  • IN VERSE 19,
  • 00:48:31.250 --> 00:48:32.270
  • HE HAS THREE ADVERSARIES,
  • 00:48:32.270 --> 00:48:34.270
  • SANBALLAT,
  • 00:48:34.270 --> 00:48:36.060
  • TOBIAH,
  • 00:48:36.060 --> 00:48:37.040
  • AND GESHEM.
  • 00:48:37.040 --> 00:48:38.290
  • THESE THREE INDIVIDUALS CAME
  • 00:48:38.290 --> 00:48:41.030
  • TO JERUSALEM AFTER THE WALLS
  • 00:48:41.030 --> 00:48:42.280
  • HAD BEEN TORN DOWN,
  • 00:48:42.280 --> 00:48:44.000
  • AFTER BABYLON HAD TAKEN OVER.
  • 00:48:44.000 --> 00:48:46.020
  • AND THEY BEGIN TO CREATE ALL
  • 00:48:46.020 --> 00:48:47.230
  • KINDS OF TROUBLE FOR NEHEMIAH.
  • 00:48:47.230 --> 00:48:49.200
  • THEY DON'T WANT THE WALLS
  • 00:48:49.200 --> 00:48:51.010
  • REBUILT.
  • 00:48:51.010 --> 00:48:51.200
  • AND THE FIRST THING
  • 00:48:51.200 --> 00:48:52.140
  • THAT NEHEMIAH TELLS THEM IS,
  • 00:48:52.140 --> 00:48:53.250
  • "THE GOD OF HEAVEN
  • 00:48:53.250 --> 00:48:55.190
  • WILL PROSPER US."
  • 00:48:55.190 --> 00:48:56.180
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:48:56.180 --> 00:48:57.140
  • "THE GOD OF HEAVEN
  • 00:48:57.140 --> 00:48:59.050
  • WILL PROSPER US."
  • 00:48:59.050 --> 00:48:59.280
  • HE WAS LETTING HIS ENEMIES
  • 00:48:59.280 --> 00:49:01.160
  • KNOW,
  • 00:49:01.160 --> 00:49:02.000
  • IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER TO ME
  • 00:49:02.000 --> 00:49:03.160
  • WHAT YOU SAY,
  • 00:49:03.160 --> 00:49:04.180
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME
  • 00:49:04.180 --> 00:49:05.200
  • WHAT YOU DO.
  • 00:49:05.200 --> 00:49:06.230
  • WHAT YOU SAY AND WHAT YOU DO
  • 00:49:06.230 --> 00:49:08.100
  • HAS NO BEARING ON MY OUTCOME.
  • 00:49:08.100 --> 00:49:10.160
  • MY OUTCOME IS DETERMINED
  • 00:49:10.160 --> 00:49:12.070
  • BY THE GOD OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:49:12.070 --> 00:49:13.170
  • HE'S THE ONE WHO'S GOING
  • 00:49:13.170 --> 00:49:15.100
  • TO PROSPER ME.
  • 00:49:15.100 --> 00:49:16.250
  • AND THEN HE LET THESE OUTSIDERS
  • 00:49:16.250 --> 00:49:18.150
  • KNOW,
  • 00:49:18.150 --> 00:49:19.070
  • "YOU HAVE NO HERITAGE."
  • 00:49:19.070 --> 00:49:20.260
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:49:20.260 --> 00:49:21.210
  • IN NEHEMIAH 2:20,
  • 00:49:21.210 --> 00:49:23.230
  • "YOU HAVE NO HERITAGE
  • 00:49:23.230 --> 00:49:25.150
  • OR MEMORIAL IN JERUSALEM."
  • 00:49:25.220 --> 00:49:28.220
  • HE WAS SAYING,
  • 00:49:28.220 --> 00:49:29.130
  • THIS IS A COVENANT LAND.
  • 00:49:29.130 --> 00:49:31.270
  • THIS HAS BEEN GIVEN BY GOD
  • 00:49:31.270 --> 00:49:33.180
  • TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,
  • 00:49:33.180 --> 00:49:35.140
  • AND THEIR GENERATIONS FOREVER.
  • 00:49:35.140 --> 00:49:37.050
  • I, NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:49:37.050 --> 00:49:38.130
  • AM A PART OF THAT COVENANT.
  • 00:49:38.130 --> 00:49:39.290
  • BUT YOU OUTSIDERS HAVE NO ROLE
  • 00:49:39.290 --> 00:49:42.050
  • IN THAT COVENANT.
  • 00:49:42.050 --> 00:49:43.020
  • SO YOU NEED TO LEAVE TOWN NOW.
  • 00:49:45.040 --> 00:49:48.040
  • THIS IS THE PURPOSE
  • 00:49:48.040 --> 00:49:49.230
  • OF REBUILDING THE BORDERS
  • 00:49:49.230 --> 00:49:51.050
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:49:51.050 --> 00:49:52.080
  • THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT
  • 00:49:52.080 --> 00:49:53.200
  • OF MARRIAGES DESTROYED
  • 00:49:53.200 --> 00:49:55.070
  • BY OUTSIDERS.
  • 00:49:55.070 --> 00:49:56.200
  • THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT
  • 00:49:56.200 --> 00:49:57.290
  • OF FAMILIES RIPPED APART,
  • 00:49:57.290 --> 00:49:59.260
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE,
  • 00:49:59.260 --> 00:50:00.140
  • WHO HAD NO PART
  • 00:50:00.140 --> 00:50:01.130
  • IN THAT COVENANT,
  • 00:50:01.130 --> 00:50:02.170
  • CAME INTO THAT RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:50:02.170 --> 00:50:04.230
  • AND THEY SCATTERED IT
  • 00:50:04.230 --> 00:50:05.240
  • LIKE STRAW IN THE WIND.
  • 00:50:05.240 --> 00:50:07.020
  • YOU HAVE A BIBLICAL PLACE TO
  • 00:50:07.020 --> 00:50:09.130
  • TAKE A STAND AND LET THEM KNOW,

  • IF YOU ARE NOT A PART
  • 00:50:11.090 --> 00:50:12.140
  • OF THIS COVENANT,

  • IF YOU ARE NOT A PART
  • 00:50:13.120 --> 00:50:14.130
  • OF THIS RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:50:14.130 --> 00:50:15.220
  • IF YOU ARE NOT A PART
  • 00:50:15.220 --> 00:50:16.180

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:50:23.230 --> 00:50:26.230
  • RIGHT AFTER NEHEMIAH BUILT

  • THE WALLS,
  • 00:50:29.030 --> 00:50:31.010
  • HE REHUNG THE GATES.

  • BETWEEN WALLS AND GATES.
  • 00:50:34.200 --> 00:50:35.270

  • BUT GATES ARE FOR ACCESS.
  • 00:50:43.040 --> 00:50:46.040

  • TO PROTECT THE CITY.
  • 00:50:51.180 --> 00:50:52.220
  • AND THEN HE PUT UP GATES

  • 00:50:55.230 --> 00:50:57.290
  • COULD GO OUT.
  • 00:50:57.290 --> 00:51:00.080
