  • (Singing) I know my God has made the way for
  • 00:01:20.200 --> 00:01:27.260
  • me. I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:01:27.270 --> 00:01:39.130
  • GLORIA: Hey everybody, welcome to the believers
  • 00:01:44.290 --> 00:01:47.020
  • voice of victory broadcast pastors back with us.
  • 00:01:47.030 --> 00:01:50.230
  • Pastor George, he's got some more good things for us. You
  • 00:01:50.240 --> 00:01:54.270
  • know, the Word of God can make a marvelous, just a huge
  • 00:01:54.280 --> 00:01:59.240
  • difference in our lives if we'll feed on it. That's where faith
  • 00:01:59.250 --> 00:02:03.230
  • comes from. And faith what changes things. So, pastor,
  • 00:02:03.240 --> 00:02:07.150
  • we're all ears. GEORGE: Well, Gloria, we've been talking this
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:10.030
  • week about God is my source and we've been looking at different
  • 00:02:10.040 --> 00:02:13.240
  • scriptures just reviewing and talking about the fact that he
  • 00:02:13.250 --> 00:02:17.270
  • is the source of everything that we need. If there is any worry
  • 00:02:17.280 --> 00:02:21.250
  • or concern about financial issues in our lives, we can look
  • 00:02:21.260 --> 00:02:25.150
  • to him because he's the ultimate source of everything that we
  • 00:02:25.160 --> 00:02:29.000
  • need. And the fact that we have a covenant with him, and it's a
  • 00:02:29.010 --> 00:02:33.020
  • covenant of provision. It's a covenant of wealth. It's a
  • 00:02:33.030 --> 00:02:35.230
  • covenant of Health, it's a covenant of peace. And that in
  • 00:02:35.240 --> 00:02:39.140
  • that covenant, he guarantees that he will take care of our
  • 00:02:39.150 --> 00:02:42.240
  • lives. And so that's what we're talking about this week. And
  • 00:02:42.250 --> 00:02:45.240
  • Gloria, this is our 354th day of prosperity. 1.5 million
  • 00:02:45.250 --> 00:02:52.080
  • downloads, and if you'd like to get our outlines, just go to the
  • 00:02:52.090 --> 00:02:56.290
  • kcm.org website. Look at the picture of Gloria and me, click
  • 00:02:57.000 --> 00:03:02.130
  • onto it and it will take you to not just this outline today or
  • 00:03:02.140 --> 00:03:06.200
  • these outlines this week but you'll get all of the outlines
  • 00:03:06.210 --> 00:03:09.020
  • that we've taught. Since 2010 we've been doing this. And so
  • 00:03:09.030 --> 00:03:14.270
  • yesterday, Gloria, we were talking about our covenant with
  • 00:03:14.280 --> 00:03:18.090
  • God and how in that Covenant He provides everything that we
  • 00:03:18.100 --> 00:03:23.070
  • need, everything that we could possibly need on earth. And
  • 00:03:23.080 --> 00:03:26.220
  • there was a second page to our notes and we never got to the
  • 00:03:26.230 --> 00:03:29.270
  • second page. And you mentioned during the broadcast, at the end
  • 00:03:29.280 --> 00:03:33.060
  • of the broadcast when we got through, you said we need to go
  • 00:03:33.070 --> 00:03:36.070
  • through this list with the people on the next broadcast. So
  • 00:03:36.080 --> 00:03:40.080
  • let's do that. We're talking about covenant provision. It is
  • 00:03:40.090 --> 00:03:43.080
  • the will of God for you to prosper and his desire, his
  • 00:03:43.090 --> 00:03:47.160
  • great covenant desire to see to it that our needs are met and it
  • 00:03:47.170 --> 00:03:52.060
  • comes from him. He is the source. So I did a little study
  • 00:03:52.070 --> 00:03:56.060
  • here on covenant provision in Psalms, so I thought we'd go
  • 00:03:56.070 --> 00:04:00.230
  • through this together and read the psalms 34:10 it says, the
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:06.010
  • young lions do lack and suffer hunger, but they that seek the
  • 00:04:06.020 --> 00:04:09.260
  • Lord shall not want any good things. That's a great word. And
  • 00:04:09.270 --> 00:04:15.230
  • you know, I think the operative phrase in there, Gloria, is they
  • 00:04:15.240 --> 00:04:18.260
  • that seek the Lord. That's the important part. GLORIA: That
  • 00:04:18.270 --> 00:04:21.230
  • opens you up. GEORGE: Yeah. Well we talked about Matthew 6:33
  • 00:04:21.240 --> 00:04:24.260
  • seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and then
  • 00:04:24.270 --> 00:04:29.050
  • all of these things will be added unto you. GLORIA: Seeking
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:31.190
  • is very important. What does that mean? You're giving him
  • 00:04:31.200 --> 00:04:35.010
  • your attention. You know, people are busy they're going here,
  • 00:04:35.020 --> 00:04:38.120
  • there. They've given their attention everywhere else, but
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:41.120
  • we've got to give attention to the Lord if we want to receive
  • 00:04:41.130 --> 00:04:44.120
  • from him. And he's the one that knows everything. GEORGE: Yes,
  • 00:04:44.130 --> 00:04:47.030
  • absolutely. GLORIA: That would only be wise. GEORGE: I liked
  • 00:04:47.040 --> 00:04:49.220
  • that. I liked the fact you give your, you give your attention to
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:52.190
  • him. You could really read it like that. They that give their
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:55.160
  • attention to the Lord shall not want any good thing. Why is
  • 00:04:55.170 --> 00:04:59.070
  • that? Because you've turned your eyes to the provider himself.
  • 00:04:59.080 --> 00:05:03.180
  • Yehovah Yirah. GLORIA: The one who knows everything. GEORGE:
  • 00:05:03.190 --> 00:05:07.120
  • The one who knows everything, the one who has everything and
  • 00:05:07.130 --> 00:05:10.160
  • he will provide for us. The second one, Psalm 36:8, now I
  • 00:05:10.170 --> 00:05:15.180
  • chose the amplified classic translation. It says they relish
  • 00:05:15.190 --> 00:05:19.040
  • and feast on the abundance of your house and you caused them
  • 00:05:19.050 --> 00:05:23.290
  • to drink of the stream of your pleasures. He talks about the
  • 00:05:24.000 --> 00:05:28.000
  • abundance. GLORIA: Your house is God's house. GEORGE: Yeah,
  • 00:05:28.010 --> 00:05:30.120
  • that's right. That's right. And in his house there is abundance.
  • 00:05:30.130 --> 00:05:34.060
  • There is great abundance available to us, so whatever
  • 00:05:34.070 --> 00:05:37.280
  • need that we might have or whatever outstanding bills there
  • 00:05:37.290 --> 00:05:41.140
  • are or debts to be paid, he has what it takes to be able to do
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:45.290
  • it. All right. Psalm 66:12 that has caused men to ride over our
  • 00:05:46.000 --> 00:05:52.170
  • heads. We went through fire and through water, but you brought
  • 00:05:52.180 --> 00:05:56.190
  • us out into a wealthy place. GLORIA: There was a hard place.
  • 00:05:56.200 --> 00:06:02.020
  • We got into a situation or two. But God brought him out. GEORGE:
  • 00:06:02.030 --> 00:06:07.280
  • He brought him out and brought him into that wealthy place. So
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:10.160
  • the Lord's bringing you into a wealthy place. He's taking you
  • 00:06:10.170 --> 00:06:13.120
  • out of that hard place, and if you will receive that from him
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:16.270
  • and you seek him and you put the Word of God first place and give
  • 00:06:16.280 --> 00:06:21.070
  • it the first, the ultimate authority in your lives, then
  • 00:06:21.080 --> 00:06:25.070
  • you'll see this happen. GLORIA: It means you do what it says.
  • 00:06:25.080 --> 00:06:28.040
  • GEORGE: You do what it says. You know, I've seen that again, you
  • 00:06:28.050 --> 00:06:31.150
  • and Kenneth have been the, the examples that the Lord has given
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:35.280
  • me to look at over all of these years. I was 22 when I first
  • 00:06:35.290 --> 00:06:39.210
  • came here and now 43 years later, do the math. 43 years
  • 00:06:39.220 --> 00:06:45.070
  • later, I'm still, I have watched the two of you progress in this
  • 00:06:45.080 --> 00:06:51.130
  • ministry and when I came here, there were only 12 people on
  • 00:06:51.140 --> 00:06:55.060
  • staff. GLORIA: That was a long time ago. GEORGE: Now in the
  • 00:06:55.070 --> 00:06:57.220
  • United States alone, we've got about 400-475 people here, but
  • 00:06:57.230 --> 00:07:02.180
  • you have offices all over the world. This is grown. It's the
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:06.100
  • Lord has taken you into a wealthy place and he's done the
  • 00:07:06.110 --> 00:07:10.080
  • same thing with me. Yeah. I like, I like what Gloria talks
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:13.090
  • about. When I first came here, I had a pair of pants that she
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:17.050
  • called, floods. Floods were way up over my socks and we got rid
  • 00:07:17.060 --> 00:07:24.180
  • of those. Actually. Nani got rid of those. Yeah. When I was, when
  • 00:07:24.190 --> 00:07:28.100
  • I first came here, I went to live with A.W. and Vinita
  • 00:07:28.110 --> 00:07:31.100
  • Copeland, Kenneth's parents. That was before Terri and I were
  • 00:07:31.110 --> 00:07:34.040
  • married, so I live with them and about first or second day I was
  • 00:07:34.050 --> 00:07:37.040
  • there. I got up one morning, I was looking for my clothes. I
  • 00:07:37.050 --> 00:07:40.190
  • had some clothes, but I wondered where the rest of my clothes
  • 00:07:40.200 --> 00:07:44.020
  • were and Nonnie said, oh honey, we took those to the goodwill,
  • 00:07:44.030 --> 00:07:47.030
  • but then Granddad took me shopping. GLORIA: It turned out
  • 00:07:47.040 --> 00:07:53.120
  • all right. GEORGE: It turned out just fine. He took me into a
  • 00:07:53.130 --> 00:07:56.000
  • wealthy place. Well, that's what the Lord wants to do with us. He
  • 00:07:56.010 --> 00:08:01.090
  • wants to take care of every need that we have. Even to the degree
  • 00:08:01.100 --> 00:08:05.030
  • of, I know that there are people who have children who have gone
  • 00:08:05.040 --> 00:08:09.190
  • off to college and they're paying college tuition. The Lord
  • 00:08:09.200 --> 00:08:12.230
  • wants to meet that need. He wants to be your source of
  • 00:08:12.240 --> 00:08:16.290
  • supply. He is our source of supply in Psalm 68:19 bless the
  • 00:08:17.000 --> 00:08:23.030
  • Lord who daily loads us with benefits. GLORIA: Don't you like
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:27.160
  • that? Benefit. GEORGE: I like that. GLORIA: Good benefit.
  • 00:08:27.170 --> 00:08:30.070
  • GEORGE: I liked it. Good benefits on a daily basis. I'm
  • 00:08:30.080 --> 00:08:33.140
  • expecting it every day. GLORIA: It can't be of benefit unless it
  • 00:08:33.150 --> 00:08:37.070
  • benefits. GEORGE: That's true. It can't be a benefit unless it
  • 00:08:37.080 --> 00:08:41.260
  • benefits. I like that. In Psalm 84:11, no good thing will he
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:47.100
  • withhold from them that walk uprightly I see it. I see a
  • 00:08:47.110 --> 00:08:51.270
  • pattern here, Gloria, of some things that that prosperity is
  • 00:08:51.280 --> 00:08:55.170
  • connected to righteousness. It's connected to obedience. It's
  • 00:08:55.180 --> 00:08:59.260
  • connected to our attention that we give to him and it says here,
  • 00:08:59.270 --> 00:09:03.190
  • no good thing will he withhold from them who walk uprightly.
  • 00:09:03.200 --> 00:09:07.210
  • GLORIA: Well, isn't that the way probably you were raised if you
  • 00:09:07.220 --> 00:09:12.050
  • didn't do right, you didn't get right. GEORGE: Yeah, that's
  • 00:09:12.060 --> 00:09:16.270
  • true. That's true. GLORIA: Mom and Daddy, you weren't too
  • 00:09:16.280 --> 00:09:20.120
  • blessed. GEORGE: No, I wasn't. Well I wasn't. I had to obey. I
  • 00:09:20.130 --> 00:09:25.080
  • had to be obedient to them. Yeah, I did. In Psalm 85:12 the
  • 00:09:25.090 --> 00:09:30.240
  • amplified translation. Um, yes, the Lord will give what is good
  • 00:09:30.250 --> 00:09:35.230
  • in our land will yield its increase. So the Lord gives
  • 00:09:35.240 --> 00:09:38.240
  • what's good into the land. Psalm 103:2, bless the Lord o my soul
  • 00:09:38.250 --> 00:09:44.010
  • and forget not all his benefits. He is. We cannot forget that he
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:49.090
  • is the source. He is the provider. GLORIA: In the word
  • 00:09:49.100 --> 00:09:53.080
  • are the benefit. You know and remember. Are the ones that
  • 00:09:53.090 --> 00:09:57.260
  • faith you have faith for. GEORGE: Right and you have to
  • 00:09:57.270 --> 00:10:00.180
  • have, you have to exercise your faith in the Word . GLORIA:
  • 00:10:00.190 --> 00:10:03.250
  • Receive, those are the ones you receive. GEORGE: I go back. As a
  • 00:10:03.260 --> 00:10:07.010
  • matter of fact, right now I'm listening to a series a that
  • 00:10:07.020 --> 00:10:10.230
  • Kenneth did back in the 80s called "Faith: How it works."
  • 00:10:10.240 --> 00:10:16.060
  • It's a very basic teaching on faith. But what am I doing? I'm
  • 00:10:16.070 --> 00:10:21.250
  • renewing my mind. I'm feeding my spirit. I'm getting new things
  • 00:10:21.260 --> 00:10:26.020
  • out of it that I hadn't heard before. I go back and review
  • 00:10:26.030 --> 00:10:29.190
  • these things. I have to stay up on that because I'm still
  • 00:10:29.200 --> 00:10:34.170
  • believing God for provision, not only for my household, but now
  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:39.230
  • we have five grandchildren and a good man leaves an inheritance
  • 00:10:39.240 --> 00:10:44.080
  • for his children's children. And four of those are girls. GLORIA:
  • 00:10:44.090 --> 00:10:48.160
  • Tell them, but they call you. GEORGE: They call me poppy. They
  • 00:10:48.170 --> 00:10:52.060
  • call me, they call me poppy, and I love them. GLORIA: You had to
  • 00:10:52.070 --> 00:10:57.000
  • work hard to get that name, George. GEORGE: I, well, I
  • 00:10:57.010 --> 00:10:59.220
  • actually gave myself that name and the littlest one, the two
  • 00:10:59.230 --> 00:11:03.170
  • year old, this last weekend, they were with us and she kept,
  • 00:11:03.180 --> 00:11:06.220
  • she call me poppy sometimes. Then she'll say, papa, I'm like,
  • 00:11:06.230 --> 00:11:10.020
  • no, I'm poppy. She would go papa. GLORIA: You're whoever she
  • 00:11:10.030 --> 00:11:13.290
  • says you are. GEORGE: But so, but I'm, I want to bless them. I
  • 00:11:14.000 --> 00:11:17.130
  • want to be a blessing to those children. And my children are
  • 00:11:17.140 --> 00:11:23.090
  • raising their children in the nurture, in the stature of the
  • 00:11:23.100 --> 00:11:26.240
  • Lord. It's amazing, Gloria, how they are training and teaching,
  • 00:11:26.250 --> 00:11:30.140
  • uh, these children and how, how proficient they are in the word
  • 00:11:30.150 --> 00:11:36.080
  • of God and how they look to the Lord. GLORIA: They'll be blessed
  • 00:11:36.090 --> 00:11:39.140
  • all their lives. GEORGE: They will be. Alright in um, Psalm
  • 00:11:39.150 --> 00:11:44.180
  • 107:9, he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good
  • 00:11:44.190 --> 00:11:49.020
  • things. See, all of these scriptures that we're reading
  • 00:11:49.030 --> 00:11:52.060
  • right now connect directly to the fact that God is our source.
  • 00:11:52.070 --> 00:11:55.250
  • He's the provider. He's the suppliers in and he is the, he's
  • 00:11:55.260 --> 00:12:01.280
  • the blessing. He is. He has us operating under the blessing and
  • 00:12:01.290 --> 00:12:07.020
  • really, if you want to go and read Deuteronomy 28 the first 15
  • 00:12:07.030 --> 00:12:10.280
  • verses, it talks about the blessing of the Lord. We're
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:14.190
  • blessed coming in. We're blessed going out. We're blessed in the
  • 00:12:14.200 --> 00:12:18.010
  • city. GLORIA: And what was the necessity to that blessing?
  • 00:12:18.020 --> 00:12:21.160
  • Doing what you're told. GEORGE: Doing what you're told, if you
  • 00:12:21.170 --> 00:12:25.160
  • will hearken- GLORIA: Because doing what God says works.
  • 00:12:25.170 --> 00:12:27.280
  • GEORGE: Yes. Yeah, exactly. Let me look up that scripture really
  • 00:12:27.290 --> 00:12:31.010
  • quick here, Gloria, because you mentioned something important.
  • 00:12:31.020 --> 00:12:33.080
  • You said what? There's, there's this provisional side to the
  • 00:12:33.090 --> 00:12:37.240
  • blessing and it says in Deuteronomy 28:1, and it shall
  • 00:12:37.250 --> 00:12:42.150
  • come to pass if you will, hearken diligently unto the
  • 00:12:42.160 --> 00:12:45.190
  • Voice of the Lord thy God, and to observe and to do his
  • 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:50.010
  • commandments, which I command thee this day. Then it says, the
  • 00:12:50.020 --> 00:12:54.230
  • Lord Thy God will set you on high above all nations, of the
  • 00:12:54.240 --> 00:12:59.230
  • nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come on
  • 00:12:59.240 --> 00:13:03.240
  • you and they will overtake you. But it comes from hearkening to
  • 00:13:03.250 --> 00:13:08.260
  • the Lord being obedient to him and being able to receive him as
  • 00:13:08.270 --> 00:13:13.130
  • our source. GLORIA: Diligently is a big word there. It doesn't
  • 00:13:13.140 --> 00:13:17.220
  • say if you'll go to church, you can be blessed. Well it's a
  • 00:13:17.230 --> 00:13:23.120
  • blessing in going to church, but he's talking about the blessing
  • 00:13:23.130 --> 00:13:26.080
  • and he's talking about him. Uh, I'm all always want to say here
  • 00:13:26.090 --> 00:13:30.250
  • Ken, cause that's what I thought about. He's talking about doing
  • 00:13:30.260 --> 00:13:34.230
  • what you're told. That's how we've prospered. We've started
  • 00:13:34.240 --> 00:13:37.190
  • doing what the Bible says. And believe in what it says. Saying
  • 00:13:37.200 --> 00:13:41.160
  • what it says and we've prospered. You did the same
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:45.110
  • thing in your family. GEORGE: Even to this day, I watch you do
  • 00:13:45.120 --> 00:13:47.200
  • that. I watch Kenneth to do that. You are both sticklers for
  • 00:13:47.210 --> 00:13:50.240
  • the word. GLORIA: We are. It works. We're not going to give
  • 00:13:50.250 --> 00:13:53.180
  • it up. GEORGE: It works. In Psalm 115:12-15, The Lord has
  • 00:13:53.190 --> 00:13:57.180
  • been mindful of us. He will bless us. He will bless the
  • 00:13:57.190 --> 00:14:00.210
  • House of Israel. He will bless the house of Aaron. He will
  • 00:14:00.220 --> 00:14:03.190
  • bless them. That fear the Lord, both small and great. The Lord
  • 00:14:03.200 --> 00:14:06.190
  • shall increase you more and more. You and your children. You
  • 00:14:06.200 --> 00:14:11.250
  • are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth God. Now
  • 00:14:11.260 --> 00:14:15.110
  • notice here it says, the Lord shall increase you. He's the
  • 00:14:15.120 --> 00:14:18.290
  • source. It comes from him, so you have to confess that you
  • 00:14:19.000 --> 00:14:23.010
  • have to declare that. I declare that over my life. I declared
  • 00:14:23.020 --> 00:14:26.060
  • over this ministry. The Lord is increasing us more and more.
  • 00:14:26.070 --> 00:14:30.140
  • He's increasing this ministry. He's increasing us. He's
  • 00:14:30.150 --> 00:14:34.110
  • increasing our outreach. He, he, the Lord gave Brother Copeland a
  • 00:14:34.120 --> 00:14:38.090
  • word back in 1976 and that was to preach this uncompromised
  • 00:14:38.100 --> 00:14:43.100
  • word of faith on every available voice from the top of the world
  • 00:14:43.110 --> 00:14:47.220
  • to the bottom and all the way around. GLORIA: We're still
  • 00:14:47.230 --> 00:14:50.020
  • working on. GEORGE: We're still working on that. We're still
  • 00:14:50.030 --> 00:14:52.140
  • expanding and enlarging. We're like, we're, we're kind of like
  • 00:14:52.150 --> 00:14:56.160
  • the universe of God. We're still expanding. Yeah, we're still
  • 00:14:56.170 --> 00:14:59.140
  • enlarging because the Lord is not done with us yet. He's not
  • 00:14:59.150 --> 00:15:03.070
  • through with this ministry. He wants this uncompromised word of
  • 00:15:03.080 --> 00:15:06.250
  • faith to get out there and he is our source to be able to pay for
  • 00:15:06.260 --> 00:15:11.090
  • everything that it takes to get it done. GLORIA: Amen, he's
  • 00:15:11.100 --> 00:15:13.260
  • faithful. GEORGE: He's faithful. And then finally, Psalm 116:12
  • 00:15:13.270 --> 00:15:17.110
  • in the amplified, um, what will I give to the Lord in return for
  • 00:15:17.120 --> 00:15:22.030
  • all his benefits toward me? How can I repay him for his precious
  • 00:15:22.040 --> 00:15:26.100
  • blessings? So all of that is that it comes, it comes from
  • 00:15:26.110 --> 00:15:31.280
  • him. It all comes from him. So, those are all the scriptures
  • 00:15:31.290 --> 00:15:35.080
  • that we missed yesterday, that we, that we picked up today.
  • 00:15:35.090 --> 00:15:38.140
  • Now, today, Gloria, with the time that we do have left, we're
  • 00:15:38.150 --> 00:15:43.000
  • talking about God is my source. The blessing makes us rich,
  • 00:15:43.010 --> 00:15:47.010
  • rich. GLORIA: Now he said that we said that because he said it,
  • 00:15:47.020 --> 00:15:51.070
  • the blessing of the Lord makes rich. GEORGE: It makes rich,
  • 00:15:51.080 --> 00:15:55.070
  • rich is not a dirty word. GLORIA: Rich is abundantly
  • 00:15:55.080 --> 00:15:58.140
  • supplied. GEORGE: It is abundantly supplied. It is a
  • 00:15:58.150 --> 00:16:01.100
  • blessing word. And we, we certainly in this particular
  • 00:16:01.110 --> 00:16:06.040
  • series that we're doing, we don't have the time to really
  • 00:16:06.050 --> 00:16:09.010
  • delve into that. But you and I spent, we spent two weeks, one
  • 00:16:09.020 --> 00:16:12.200
  • time talking about the rich and their conduct and how they
  • 00:16:12.210 --> 00:16:17.190
  • handled themselves and what Paul told Timothy to tell those who
  • 00:16:17.200 --> 00:16:21.290
  • were rich in the things of the world. He didn't tell them you
  • 00:16:22.000 --> 00:16:24.260
  • didn't have to be rich. He told them how to conduct themselves.
  • 00:16:24.270 --> 00:16:27.200
  • And so you and I, we, we spent a lot of time talking about that.
  • 00:16:27.210 --> 00:16:31.100
  • But for today, the blessing of the Lord, it makes rich and he
  • 00:16:31.110 --> 00:16:35.170
  • adds no sorrow to it. Look at the word rich there in the
  • 00:16:35.180 --> 00:16:39.120
  • Hebrew, it means to accumulate. It means to grow rich, it means
  • 00:16:39.130 --> 00:16:43.280
  • to become wealthy. GLORIA: To have more than enough to have.
  • 00:16:43.290 --> 00:16:47.120
  • GEORGE: More than enough. Exactly. And the good news
  • 00:16:47.130 --> 00:16:49.280
  • translation says, it is the Lord's blessing that makes you
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:53.170
  • wealthy. I like this Brenton translation. It says, the
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:57.200
  • blessing of the Lord is on the head of the righteous. It
  • 00:16:57.210 --> 00:17:00.220
  • enriches him and grief of heart shall not be added to it.
  • 00:17:00.230 --> 00:17:04.120
  • GLORIA: You know, I don't have that translation. I don't, I've
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:06.170
  • never heard of it. GEORGE: The Brenton. It's a great
  • 00:17:06.180 --> 00:17:08.080
  • translation. Yeah. Yeah. And so the, the blessing of the Lord,
  • 00:17:08.090 --> 00:17:11.150
  • the blessing makes us rich. It makes us wealthy and it makes
  • 00:17:11.160 --> 00:17:16.290
  • wealthy those who know how to handle it. You know, Gloria
  • 00:17:17.000 --> 00:17:22.190
  • you've talked about how uh, people can be controlled by
  • 00:17:22.200 --> 00:17:28.000
  • money. They have to know how to use it. And so he's taught us
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:32.000
  • how to use it. He's taught us how to tithe and he's taught us
  • 00:17:32.010 --> 00:17:34.220
  • how to give. But it's the blessing of the law. Yeah.
  • 00:17:34.230 --> 00:17:38.140
  • GLORIA: If you're rich, that means you have more than enough.
  • 00:17:38.150 --> 00:17:42.240
  • That means you can do whatever you, whatever you want to do.
  • 00:17:42.250 --> 00:17:47.180
  • Now, if you don't want to do something good, you're in
  • 00:17:47.190 --> 00:17:50.270
  • trouble. Cause you'll use your riches to add sand upon sand and
  • 00:17:50.280 --> 00:17:57.170
  • curse upon curse. So it, it's, it's important. GEORGE: That's,
  • 00:17:57.180 --> 00:18:03.020
  • that's exactly right. As a matter of fact, let me just-
  • 00:18:03.030 --> 00:18:05.230
  • GLORIA: The blessing of the Lord is on the head of the righteous.
  • 00:18:05.240 --> 00:18:09.070
  • GEORGE: Let me just read this to you. It's not on our notes,
  • 00:18:09.080 --> 00:18:12.080
  • Gloria, but I just thought when you mentioned this, this came to
  • 00:18:12.090 --> 00:18:14.210
  • me, this is first Timothy 6:17, the apostle Paul told Timothy,
  • 00:18:14.220 --> 00:18:20.110
  • because Timothy was having a hard time with rich people in
  • 00:18:20.120 --> 00:18:22.290
  • his church. They were, they were being controlling, they were
  • 00:18:23.000 --> 00:18:27.020
  • being haughty and demanding. And Paul told Timothy, he said,
  • 00:18:27.030 --> 00:18:31.070
  • charge them, tell them, command them. GLORIA: Charge them that
  • 00:18:31.080 --> 00:18:35.000
  • are rich in this world. GEORGE: That are rich in this world. And
  • 00:18:35.010 --> 00:18:38.140
  • he didn't say, charge them that are rich in this world that they
  • 00:18:38.150 --> 00:18:40.120
  • can't be rich anymore. No, he said, charge them that are rich
  • 00:18:40.130 --> 00:18:43.200
  • in this world that they be not high minded nor trust in
  • 00:18:43.210 --> 00:18:47.240
  • uncertain riches, but in the living God who gives us richly
  • 00:18:47.250 --> 00:18:52.100
  • all things to enjoy that they do good, that they be rich in good
  • 00:18:52.110 --> 00:18:56.290
  • works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate, laying
  • 00:18:57.000 --> 00:19:01.000
  • up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time
  • 00:19:01.010 --> 00:19:05.000
  • to come, that they may lay hold of eternal life. So you are
  • 00:19:05.010 --> 00:19:09.070
  • talking about the rich. That's how the rich conduct themselves.
  • 00:19:09.080 --> 00:19:12.160
  • GLORIA: Yeah. That's how the- if the rich don't consult
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:16.000
  • themselves that way, they all turn out unreached, the wrong
  • 00:19:16.010 --> 00:19:21.260
  • way. GEORGE: The wrong way. Um, how much time do we have? We
  • 00:19:21.270 --> 00:19:25.260
  • have one minute. Gloria, let me just read this to you as we
  • 00:19:25.270 --> 00:19:29.130
  • finish up. Genesis 1:27-28, God created man in his own image, in
  • 00:19:29.140 --> 00:19:35.070
  • the likeness and image of God created he, him, male and female
  • 00:19:35.080 --> 00:19:38.150
  • created he them and God blessed them and said to them, be
  • 00:19:38.160 --> 00:19:42.090
  • fruitful. Multiply, fill the earth, subdue it. Using all the
  • 00:19:42.100 --> 00:19:46.050
  • vast resources in the service of God and man, and have dominion
  • 00:19:46.060 --> 00:19:50.000
  • over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every
  • 00:19:50.010 --> 00:19:52.250
  • living creature that moves upon the earth. And Brother Copeland
  • 00:19:52.260 --> 00:19:56.280
  • said this, and I'll finish up with this to bless actually
  • 00:19:56.290 --> 00:20:00.080
  • means to empower. So the first words Adam ever heard, the first
  • 00:20:00.090 --> 00:20:04.290
  • sound that ever struck his eardrums was the sound of God's
  • 00:20:05.000 --> 00:20:08.000
  • voice. Empowering him with a divine creative ability to reign
  • 00:20:08.010 --> 00:20:12.060
  • over the earth and make it a perfect reflection of God's best
  • 00:20:12.070 --> 00:20:15.230
  • and highest will. Gloria, that blessing has not changed. The
  • 00:20:15.240 --> 00:20:20.160
  • blessing of the Lord is still on us. And the blessing of the Lord
  • 00:20:20.170 --> 00:20:25.200
  • makes us rich. God praise God. GLORIA: And he adds no sorrow
  • 00:20:25.210 --> 00:20:30.200
  • with it. GEORGE: And He adds no sorrow. GLORIA: That's a big
  • 00:20:30.210 --> 00:20:32.280
  • part, that's better than being rich. GEORGE: It
  • 00:20:32.290 --> 00:20:35.080
  • really is. No sorrow with it. GLORIA: Praise
  • 00:20:35.090 --> 00:20:39.050
  • the Lord, George and I'll be right back.
  • 00:20:39.060 --> 00:20:41.030
  • BECKY HAAS: This is so fulfilling being a part of
  • 00:20:47.250 --> 00:20:50.020
  • something that I really never could have imagined that God
  • 00:20:50.030 --> 00:20:53.230
  • would have had me in the middle of, um, to feel like you can
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:57.030
  • make a difference. Uh, in some of the stories by being involved
  • 00:20:57.040 --> 00:21:01.130
  • with some of the public schools, public housing. We hear about
  • 00:21:01.140 --> 00:21:05.000
  • children that are sleeping in a closet at night because a parent
  • 00:21:05.010 --> 00:21:09.000
  • is a heroin addict. And when the parent passes out with the
  • 00:21:09.010 --> 00:21:12.230
  • drugs, then this child is being violated by the other people
  • 00:21:12.240 --> 00:21:16.090
  • that are there. And we hear stories of kids with not enough
  • 00:21:16.100 --> 00:21:20.150
  • food, not enough clothing. And because my ministry background,
  • 00:21:20.160 --> 00:21:25.140
  • um, I started, uh, almost six years ago, a meeting at the
  • 00:21:25.150 --> 00:21:29.060
  • police department to bring the faith leaders to the department.
  • 00:21:29.070 --> 00:21:32.100
  • We meet in the strategy room, which is, uh, where the police
  • 00:21:32.110 --> 00:21:35.150
  • captains and all they work on strategies and we come in and I
  • 00:21:35.160 --> 00:21:39.200
  • bring in the service providers, housing authority, public
  • 00:21:39.210 --> 00:21:43.100
  • schools, and they just share the needs homeless services. And so
  • 00:21:43.110 --> 00:21:47.180
  • our church in Johnson city, every denomination, baptist,
  • 00:21:47.190 --> 00:21:50.210
  • Methodist, Presbyterian spirit field, charismatic, um, coming
  • 00:21:50.220 --> 00:21:54.240
  • together and meeting every other month to hear about these needs.
  • 00:21:54.250 --> 00:21:59.120
  • And now churches will call me and say, we've got a group
  • 00:21:59.130 --> 00:22:02.070
  • that's going to be available Saturday. Could we pick up
  • 00:22:02.080 --> 00:22:04.170
  • trash? Could we paint a room in the homeless shelter? And so I'm
  • 00:22:04.180 --> 00:22:08.000
  • Kinda like the air traffic control. Um, but it's just so
  • 00:22:08.010 --> 00:22:11.140
  • rewarding to really see people's lives, um, being changed and
  • 00:22:11.150 --> 00:22:16.230
  • being helped. And I could tell you story after story, I had no
  • 00:22:16.240 --> 00:22:21.030
  • idea it was so prevalent in our community where kids were
  • 00:22:21.040 --> 00:22:25.010
  • growing up in this environment. And, and so I feel like God is
  • 00:22:25.020 --> 00:22:29.220
  • wanting me to sound an alarm to, to bring rescue. In Psalms it
  • 00:22:29.230 --> 00:22:35.140
  • says that God sees tears no one else sees. And he collects them
  • 00:22:35.150 --> 00:22:39.020
  • in a bottle. And God's been seeing these tears and northeast
  • 00:22:39.030 --> 00:22:42.200
  • Tennessee for years. And, and I believe that the church is there
  • 00:22:42.210 --> 00:22:46.210
  • to, to be the one like Jesus, a bruised reed. He won't break
  • 00:22:46.220 --> 00:22:50.240
  • that. We're the ones to fan the flame and, and to rescue these.
  • 00:22:50.250 --> 00:22:54.070
  • And so I'm probably the most ordinary person that you would
  • 00:22:54.080 --> 00:22:58.230
  • ever meet, but to see what God's blessing on your life and when
  • 00:22:58.240 --> 00:23:03.180
  • you have compassion for your town and you, whether it's your
  • 00:23:03.190 --> 00:23:08.060
  • school, whether it's your neighborhood to start where you
  • 00:23:08.070 --> 00:23:11.090
  • are, but no matter what, how small of a stamp you take to,
  • 00:23:11.100 --> 00:23:15.240
  • how big you might help change the rate of recidivism in your
  • 00:23:15.250 --> 00:23:19.170
  • state. But many of the things that we're praying about, God
  • 00:23:19.180 --> 00:23:22.240
  • might want you to be the answer to it if we'll just step out and
  • 00:23:22.250 --> 00:23:26.230
  • make ourself available. So literally your city is waiting
  • 00:23:26.240 --> 00:23:29.290
  • on you. You know, I've heard the Copeland say before that really
  • 00:23:30.000 --> 00:23:33.150
  • God is not, we're not waiting on God. God is already moving and,
  • 00:23:33.160 --> 00:23:37.240
  • and our cities are waiting on us and every person can make a
  • 00:23:37.250 --> 00:23:41.210
  • difference in your job. We should be as excited about

  • going to work on Monday as we are about going to
  • 00:23:44.200 --> 00:23:46.150

  • 00:23:46.160 --> 00:23:50.130
