  • 00:01:54.020 --> 00:01:56.030
  • FATHER GOD,
  • 00:01:56.030 --> 00:01:57.020
  • THANK YOU FOR THE WORD
  • 00:01:57.020 --> 00:01:59.250
  • THAT IS A LIGHT UNTO OUR FEET
  • 00:01:59.250 --> 00:02:02.200
  • AND A LIGHT UNTO OUR PATHWAY.
  • 00:02:02.200 --> 00:02:05.150
  • LET US HEAR IT.
  • 00:02:05.150 --> 00:02:07.190
  • LET US EXPERIENCE IT.

  • LET US PRACTICE IT.
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:12.010
  • FOR IT IS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:02:12.010 --> 00:02:14.020
  • FOR THIS CONGREGATION
  • 00:02:14.020 --> 00:02:16.060
  • AND FOR RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE
  • 00:02:16.060 --> 00:02:18.120
  • WHO DESIRE TO LIVE
  • 00:02:18.120 --> 00:02:19.190
  • ON THE ECONOMY OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:02:19.190 --> 00:02:21.180
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:02:21.180 --> 00:02:23.200
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:02:23.200 --> 00:02:25.040
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:02:25.040 --> 00:02:26.110
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:02:26.110 --> 00:02:27.090
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:02:27.090 --> 00:02:28.260
  • LET'S BEGIN WITH THE BASICS
  • 00:02:28.260 --> 00:02:31.010
  • THAT GOD DEMANDS TO BE FIRST.
  • 00:02:32.170 --> 00:02:35.170
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:02:35.170 --> 00:02:36.130
  • "SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM
  • 00:02:36.130 --> 00:02:37.140
  • OF GOD
  • 00:02:37.140 --> 00:02:39.070
  • AND ALL OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:02:39.070 --> 00:02:41.190
  • AND ALL OF THESE THINGS SHALL
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:43.130
  • BE ADDED UNTO YOU."
  • 00:02:43.130 --> 00:02:45.120
  • HEAR THAT ONE PHRASE,
  • 00:02:45.120 --> 00:02:47.110
  • "ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:02:47.110 --> 00:02:50.060
  • SHALL BE ADDED,"
  • 00:02:50.060 --> 00:02:51.160
  • BECAUSE YOU SEEK FIRST
  • 00:02:51.160 --> 00:02:53.170
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:02:53.170 --> 00:02:54.170
  • WHY DO WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY?
  • 00:02:54.170 --> 00:02:56.240
  • WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY
  • 00:02:56.240 --> 00:02:57.240
  • BECAUSE JESUS ROSE
  • 00:02:57.240 --> 00:02:58.280
  • FROM THE DEAD ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:02:58.280 --> 00:03:00.230
  • SUNDAY IS THE FIRST DAY
  • 00:03:00.230 --> 00:03:02.000
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:02.000 --> 00:03:03.040
  • IT IS THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:03:03.040 --> 00:03:04.280
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:04.280 --> 00:03:06.060
  • LISTEN.
  • 00:03:06.060 --> 00:03:07.100
  • YOUR SUCCESS FOR THE WEEK
  • 00:03:07.100 --> 00:03:09.190
  • BEGINS ON SUNDAY BY HONORING
  • 00:03:10.030 --> 00:03:13.030
  • THE LORD AS THE LORD
  • 00:03:13.030 --> 00:03:14.100
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:14.100 --> 00:03:15.220
  • THE FIRST FRUIT SANCTIFIES
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:19.160
  • THE FOLLOWING FRUIT.
  • 00:03:19.160 --> 00:03:21.040
  • PUTTING GOD FIRST IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:03:21.040 --> 00:03:23.120
  • ESTABLISHES HIS LORDSHIP.
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:25.290
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:03:25.290 --> 00:03:27.190
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:03:27.190 --> 00:03:29.090
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD,
  • 00:03:29.090 --> 00:03:30.190
  • THERE IS NO BLESSING,
  • 00:03:30.190 --> 00:03:32.020
  • THERE IS NO FAVOR,
  • 00:03:32.020 --> 00:03:33.150
  • THERE IS NO PROSPERITY;
  • 00:03:33.150 --> 00:03:35.130
  • AND YOU LIVE,
  • 00:03:35.130 --> 00:03:36.270
  • ACCORDING TO MALACHI,
  • 00:03:36.270 --> 00:03:38.070
  • UNDER A CURSE.
  • 00:03:38.070 --> 00:03:39.280
  • C.S. LEWIS SAYS,
  • 00:03:39.280 --> 00:03:41.010
  • "WHEN FIRST THINGS ARE PUT
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:42.080
  • FIRST,
  • 00:03:42.080 --> 00:03:43.090
  • SECOND THINGS BEGIN
  • 00:03:43.090 --> 00:03:45.010
  • TO INCREASE."
  • 00:03:45.010 --> 00:03:46.130
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN
  • 00:03:46.130 --> 00:03:47.010
  • TO BE FIRST?
  • 00:03:47.010 --> 00:03:48.110
  • FIRST IS PRECEDING ALL OTHERS
  • 00:03:48.110 --> 00:03:51.020
  • IN TIME IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE.
  • 00:03:52.130 --> 00:03:55.130
  • IF YOU GO OUT AND RUN A RACE
  • 00:03:55.130 --> 00:03:57.120
  • BY YOURSELF,
  • 00:03:57.120 --> 00:03:58.290
  • YOU COME IN FIRST,
  • 00:03:58.290 --> 00:04:01.030
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS NOBODY ELSE
  • 00:04:01.030 --> 00:04:02.130
  • RUNNING AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:04:02.130 --> 00:04:04.160
  • SO IF YOU REALLY ARE
  • 00:04:04.160 --> 00:04:05.170
  • NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:04:05.170 --> 00:04:06.170
  • THERE HAS TO BE A SEQUENCE
  • 00:04:06.170 --> 00:04:08.000
  • OF SOMEBODY BEHIND YOU
  • 00:04:08.000 --> 00:04:10.130
  • BEFORE YOU CAN MAKE
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:11.120
  • THAT DECLARATION.
  • 00:04:11.120 --> 00:04:12.290
  • FIRST DOES NOT MEAN NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:04:12.290 --> 00:04:14.260
  • IT DOES NOT MEAN THE ONLY ONE.
  • 00:04:14.260 --> 00:04:17.130
  • NOTHING CAN BE FIRST UNLESS
  • 00:04:17.130 --> 00:04:19.080
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE TO BE
  • 00:04:19.080 --> 00:04:21.040
  • FIRST OF.
  • 00:04:21.040 --> 00:04:22.230
  • FIRST FRUITS IS THE OFFERING
  • 00:04:22.230 --> 00:04:24.260
  • OF THE FIRST GRAIN HARVESTED
  • 00:04:24.260 --> 00:04:26.140
  • IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:26.140 --> 00:04:27.290
  • IF YOU DID NOT BRING YOUR FIRST
  • 00:04:27.290 --> 00:04:29.130
  • FRUITS TO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:04:29.130 --> 00:04:32.120
  • GOD INSTRUCTED ISRAEL THAT
  • 00:04:32.120 --> 00:04:35.030
  • THERE WOULD BE NO ADDITIONAL
  • 00:04:35.030 --> 00:04:36.210
  • FRUIT FOR THE HARVEST;
  • 00:04:36.210 --> 00:04:38.250
  • THEREFORE,
  • 00:04:38.250 --> 00:04:41.040
  • WHENEVER YOU AS A FARMER,
  • 00:04:41.040 --> 00:04:43.110
  • IN THE TIME OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:04:43.110 --> 00:04:45.120
  • DID NOT HAVE THE BLESSINGS
  • 00:04:45.120 --> 00:04:46.130
  • OF GOD BECAUSE YOU REFUSED
  • 00:04:46.130 --> 00:04:49.070
  • TO BRING THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:04:49.070 --> 00:04:50.110
  • TO THE HOUSE OF GOD,
  • 00:04:50.110 --> 00:04:52.030
  • YOU WERE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:04:52.030 --> 00:04:54.010
  • GOD IS THE LORD OF ALL
  • 00:04:54.010 --> 00:04:55.140
  • OR HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:04:55.140 --> 00:04:57.190
  • GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:04:57.190 --> 00:04:59.010
  • AND PLACED THEM IN THE PARADISE
  • 00:04:59.010 --> 00:05:01.000
  • OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:02.220
  • ADAM WENT TO SLEEP
  • 00:05:02.220 --> 00:05:04.170
  • AND HE WOKE UP MARRIED.
  • 00:05:04.170 --> 00:05:06.140
  • IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE AN INSOMNIAC
  • 00:05:06.140 --> 00:05:07.230
  • OUT OF YOU.
  • 00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:09.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:09.130 --> 00:05:10.010
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO WORK
  • 00:05:10.010 --> 00:05:10.260
  • 60 HOURS A WEEK TO GAIN.
  • 00:05:10.260 --> 00:05:13.260
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO FIGHT
  • 00:05:13.260 --> 00:05:15.210
  • THE TRAFFIC GOING TO WORK
  • 00:05:15.210 --> 00:05:17.180
  • AND FROM WORK,
  • 00:05:17.180 --> 00:05:19.010
  • THE SMOG,
  • 00:05:19.010 --> 00:05:19.240
  • THE IRS,
  • 00:05:19.240 --> 00:05:21.040
  • AND THE INCESSANT RINGING
  • 00:05:21.040 --> 00:05:23.180
  • OF A CELL PHONE.
  • 00:05:23.180 --> 00:05:25.100
  • I'VE OFTEN SAID,
  • 00:05:25.100 --> 00:05:26.050
  • "IF I WAKE UP IN ETERNITY
  • 00:05:26.050 --> 00:05:27.150
  • AND HEAR A PHONE RING,
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:28.230
  • I KNOW I DIED AND WENT TO HELL."
  • 00:05:28.230 --> 00:05:31.220
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:32.140
  • GOD GAVE ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:05:32.140 --> 00:05:33.270
  • ONE COMMAND,
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:35.070
  • "LEAVE THE FRUIT ON THE TREE
  • 00:05:35.070 --> 00:05:37.050
  • OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD
  • 00:05:37.050 --> 00:05:38.020
  • AND EVIL ALONE;
  • 00:05:38.020 --> 00:05:39.180
  • IT IS FORBIDDEN FRUIT."
  • 00:05:39.180 --> 00:05:41.250
  • DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
  • 00:05:41.250 --> 00:05:44.150
  • WHY DID GOD CREATE THAT TREE?
  • 00:05:44.150 --> 00:05:46.240
  • THE ANSWER IS TO SEE IF ADAM
  • 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:48.250
  • AND EVE WOULD PUT HIM FIRST
  • 00:05:48.250 --> 00:05:50.210
  • WHENEVER SATAN CAME
  • 00:05:50.210 --> 00:05:51.210
  • TO TEMPT THEM,
  • 00:05:51.210 --> 00:05:52.290
  • BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT TEMPTATION
  • 00:05:52.290 --> 00:05:54.110
  • WAS COMING.
  • 00:05:54.110 --> 00:05:56.040
  • GOD WANTED TO SEE IF THEY WOULD
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:57.200
  • PUT THE THEIR WILL
  • 00:05:57.200 --> 00:05:59.110
  • ABOVE HIS WILL.
  • 00:05:59.110 --> 00:06:01.160
  • GET THAT PHRASE.
  • 00:06:01.160 --> 00:06:03.150
  • WHEN YOUR DESIRES,
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:05.060
  • YOUR PLANS,
  • 00:06:05.060 --> 00:06:06.150
  • YOUR IDEAS,
  • 00:06:06.150 --> 00:06:08.050
  • BECOME MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU
  • 00:06:08.050 --> 00:06:09.230
  • THAN GOD'S PLAN,
  • 00:06:09.230 --> 00:06:11.180
  • YOU HAVE ADOPTED THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:06:11.180 --> 00:06:13.080
  • OF LUCIFER.
  • 00:06:13.080 --> 00:06:15.080
  • LUCIFER CHALLENGED GOD.
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:18.070
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:06:18.070 --> 00:06:19.160
  • "I WILL ASCEND TO THE HILL
  • 00:06:19.160 --> 00:06:20.240
  • OF GOD, I WILL BE LIKE GOD,
  • 00:06:20.240 --> 00:06:22.200
  • I WILL, I WILL, I WILL..."
  • 00:06:22.200 --> 00:06:24.250
  • THOSE FIVE "I WILL'S"
  • 00:06:24.250 --> 00:06:26.040
  • ARE IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH.
  • 00:06:26.040 --> 00:06:28.020
  • THE FACT IS YOU CAN HAVE
  • 00:06:28.020 --> 00:06:29.110
  • THE ATTITUDE OF LUCIFER
  • 00:06:29.110 --> 00:06:31.020
  • AND CONFESS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:34.110
  • WHEN YOUR WILL BECOMES GREATER
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:36.290
  • THAN GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:06:36.290 --> 00:06:38.130
  • YOU HAVE AN IDOLATRY PROBLEM.
  • 00:06:38.130 --> 00:06:40.240
  • WHEN JESUS AND THE 12 DISCIPLES
  • 00:06:40.240 --> 00:06:43.000
  • WERE REJECTED
  • 00:06:43.000 --> 00:06:43.240
  • BY THE SAMARITANS,
  • 00:06:43.240 --> 00:06:45.120
  • JAMES AND JOHN CAME TO JESUS
  • 00:06:46.130 --> 00:06:49.130
  • AND ASKED PERMISSION FROM JESUS
  • 00:06:49.130 --> 00:06:51.000
  • TO CALL FIRE DOWN ON THOSE
  • 00:06:51.000 --> 00:06:53.220
  • PEOPLE THAT WOULDN'T
  • 00:06:53.220 --> 00:06:54.180
  • ACCEPT THEM.
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:55.270
  • BURN THEM UP!
  • 00:06:55.270 --> 00:06:58.040
  • JESUS LOOKED AT THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:06:58.040 --> 00:07:00.190
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:07:00.190 --> 00:07:01.110
  • ASKING.
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:03.040
  • "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT MANNER
  • 00:07:03.040 --> 00:07:04.090
  • OF SPIRIT YOU'RE OF,"
  • 00:07:04.090 --> 00:07:05.180
  • LUKE 9:55.
  • 00:07:05.180 --> 00:07:08.050
  • SAINT PETER HAD LUCIFER'S
  • 00:07:08.050 --> 00:07:09.090
  • ATTITUDE.
  • 00:07:09.090 --> 00:07:09.270
  • PETER SAID TO JESUS,
  • 00:07:09.270 --> 00:07:11.090
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:11.090 --> 00:07:12.020
  • TO THE CROSS."
  • 00:07:12.020 --> 00:07:13.180
  • WHEN THE ROMAN SOLDIERS
  • 00:07:13.180 --> 00:07:14.260
  • IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
  • 00:07:14.260 --> 00:07:17.100
  • THREATENED TO TAKE HIM,
  • 00:07:17.100 --> 00:07:19.050
  • PETER SAID,
  • 00:07:19.050 --> 00:07:19.220
  • "WE'LL TAKE UP SWORDS
  • 00:07:19.220 --> 00:07:20.240
  • AND WE'LL DEFEND YOU."
  • 00:07:20.240 --> 00:07:22.280
  • JESUS LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:07:22.280 --> 00:07:24.060
  • "GET BEHIND ME SATAN."
  • 00:07:24.060 --> 00:07:25.200
  • WHY?
  • 00:07:25.200 --> 00:07:26.250
  • BECAUSE THE WHOLE PURPOSE
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:28.020
  • FOR CHRIST COMING INTO THE EARTH
  • 00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:30.200
  • WAS TO DIE ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:07:30.200 --> 00:07:32.250
  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION SAYS,
  • 00:07:32.250 --> 00:07:34.070
  • "FROM THE FOUNDATIONS
  • 00:07:34.070 --> 00:07:35.090
  • OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:07:35.090 --> 00:07:36.100
  • HE WAS PREDESTINED TO DIE AS
  • 00:07:36.180 --> 00:07:39.180
  • THE LAMB OF GOD THAT TOOK AWAY
  • 00:07:39.180 --> 00:07:41.220
  • THE SINS OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:07:41.220 --> 00:07:43.170
  • AND WHEN PETER WAS SAYING,
  • 00:07:43.170 --> 00:07:44.200
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:44.200 --> 00:07:45.170
  • TO THE CROSS,"
  • 00:07:45.170 --> 00:07:46.290
  • THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT SATAN
  • 00:07:46.290 --> 00:07:48.230
  • DID NOT WANT TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:48.230 --> 00:07:50.260
  • AND JESUS LOOKED AT
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:51.250
  • HIS FOLLOWER AND SAID,
  • 00:07:51.250 --> 00:07:53.240
  • "YOU ARE SPEAKING THE MESSAGE
  • 00:07:54.020 --> 00:07:57.020
  • OF SATAN IN MY EAR;
  • 00:07:57.020 --> 00:07:59.060
  • GET BEHIND ME."
  • 00:07:59.060 --> 00:08:00.200
  • TRANSLATION: SHUT UP.
  • 00:08:01.070 --> 00:08:04.070
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:05.140 --> 00:08:08.140
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:08:08.140 --> 00:08:09.260
  • IF YOUR ATTITUDE IS CONTROLLED
  • 00:08:09.260 --> 00:08:12.020
  • BY SATAN?
  • 00:08:12.020 --> 00:08:13.070
  • THE ANSWER IS,
  • 00:08:13.070 --> 00:08:14.120
  • WHEN YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:16.030
  • FIRST.
  • 00:08:16.030 --> 00:08:17.060
  • WHEN YOUR WILL
  • 00:08:17.060 --> 00:08:18.040
  • IS NOT GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:08:18.130 --> 00:08:21.130
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU ARE
  • 00:08:21.130 --> 00:08:22.120
  • IN A DANGEROUS TERRITORY.
  • 00:08:22.180 --> 00:08:25.180
  • SATAN DID NOT PUT GOD FIRST.
  • 00:08:25.180 --> 00:08:27.230
  • AND EVEN THOUGH HE WAS
  • 00:08:27.230 --> 00:08:28.200
  • AN ARCHANGEL,
  • 00:08:28.200 --> 00:08:30.100
  • ONE OF THE TOP THREE IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:08:30.100 --> 00:08:32.050
  • GOD KICKED HIM OUT OF HEAVEN
  • 00:08:32.050 --> 00:08:33.270
  • AND HE BECAME THE DEVIL.
  • 00:08:33.270 --> 00:08:35.270
  • WHY?
  • 00:08:35.270 --> 00:08:36.210
  • BECAUSE HE WORSHIPED HIS WILL.
  • 00:08:36.210 --> 00:08:38.200
  • ADAM AND EVE HAD ONE THING
  • 00:08:38.200 --> 00:08:40.190
  • TO DO AND THEY BLEW THAT,
  • 00:08:40.190 --> 00:08:43.130
  • AND GOD KICKED THEM OUT
  • 00:08:43.130 --> 00:08:44.160
  • OF THE GARDEN FOR NOT PUTTING
  • 00:08:44.160 --> 00:08:46.250
  • HIS WILL FIRST.
  • 00:08:46.250 --> 00:08:48.150
  • EVE WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:48.150 --> 00:08:50.020
  • ADAM WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:50.020 --> 00:08:51.200
  • THE GROUND WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:51.200 --> 00:08:53.070
  • "THORNS AND THISTLES
  • 00:08:53.070 --> 00:08:54.170
  • SHALL IT GROW."
  • 00:08:54.170 --> 00:08:55.200
  • AND THAT CURSE LIVES
  • 00:08:55.200 --> 00:08:57.060
  • UNTIL THIS DAY!
  • 00:08:57.060 --> 00:08:59.210
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:08:59.210 --> 00:09:01.240
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:09:01.240 --> 00:09:03.030
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD OF ALL,
  • 00:09:03.030 --> 00:09:05.130
  • THEN HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:09:05.130 --> 00:09:08.050
  • CAN I GET A WITNESS TO THAT?
  • 00:09:08.070 --> 00:09:11.070
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:12.040 --> 00:09:15.040
  • NOW LET'S LOOK AT ABRAHAM.
  • 00:09:15.040 --> 00:09:16.220
  • WHY DID GOD CHOOSE ABRAHAM
  • 00:09:16.220 --> 00:09:18.040
  • TO BE THE FATHER OF ALL
  • 00:09:18.040 --> 00:09:19.020
  • WHO BELIEVE?
  • 00:09:19.020 --> 00:09:20.250
  • WHY IS IT THAT THOUSANDS
  • 00:09:20.250 --> 00:09:22.010
  • OF YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH,
  • 00:09:22.010 --> 00:09:23.200
  • PEOPLE STILL KNOW HIM BETTER
  • 00:09:23.200 --> 00:09:25.190
  • THAN MOST ANY PERSON
  • 00:09:25.190 --> 00:09:26.130
  • ON THE EARTH?
  • 00:09:26.130 --> 00:09:28.010
  • BECAUSE HE UNDERSTOOD THE LAW
  • 00:09:28.010 --> 00:09:29.110
  • OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:09:29.110 --> 00:09:30.270
  • WHEN ABRAHAM TIED ISAAC
  • 00:09:30.270 --> 00:09:32.180
  • AND PLACED HIM ON THE ALTAR
  • 00:09:32.180 --> 00:09:34.100
  • TO SACRIFICE HIM TO GOD,
  • 00:09:34.100 --> 00:09:36.140
  • HE LIFTED HIS DAGGER,
  • 00:09:36.140 --> 00:09:37.190
  • AND THE ANGEL OF GOD STOPPED
  • 00:09:37.190 --> 00:09:38.290
  • HIM.
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:40.040
  • AND THEN THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:41.030
  • "I KNOW THAT YOU FEAR GOD,"
  • 00:09:41.030 --> 00:09:42.260

  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:47.080 --> 00:09:48.060
  • "I KNOW THAT GOD IS FIRST
  • 00:09:48.060 --> 00:09:50.050
  • IN YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:09:50.050 --> 00:09:52.020
  • ONLY WHEN YOU PUT GOD FIRST
  • 00:09:52.020 --> 00:09:54.160
  • IS GOD ABLE TO PROVIDE
  • 00:09:54.160 --> 00:09:56.170
  • WHAT HE PROMISES.
  • 00:09:56.170 --> 00:09:58.250

  • 00:11:33.030 --> 00:11:35.050
  • AND THE ANIMAL YOU SACRIFICED
  • 00:11:35.050 --> 00:11:37.190
  • WAS A REFLECTION
  • 00:11:37.190 --> 00:11:39.090
  • OF YOUR FINANCIAL ABILITY.
  • 00:11:39.090 --> 00:11:41.140
  • BUT THIS WAS THE COMMAND
  • 00:11:41.140 --> 00:11:42.250
  • TO EVERY PERSON IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:11:42.250 --> 00:11:44.280
  • "DON'T COME EMPTY HANDED
  • 00:11:44.280 --> 00:11:47.220
  • BEFORE THE LORD."
  • 00:11:47.220 --> 00:11:50.000
  • IF ALL YOU CAN AFFORD IS A BIRD,
  • 00:11:50.130 --> 00:11:53.130
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:11:53.130 --> 00:11:55.220
  • IF YOU CAN AFFORD A THOUSAND
  • 00:11:55.220 --> 00:11:57.110
  • OXEN AS SOLOMON,
  • 00:11:57.110 --> 00:11:59.070
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:00.250
  • BUT DO NOT COME EMPTY HANDED.
  • 00:12:01.060 --> 00:12:04.060
  • IN THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:12:04.060 --> 00:12:05.110
  • EVERYTHING IS EITHER SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:05.110 --> 00:12:07.190
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:07.190 --> 00:12:08.140
  • GET THOSE TWO WORDS,
  • 00:12:08.140 --> 00:12:10.080
  • "SACRIFICED" OR "REDEEMED."
  • 00:12:10.080 --> 00:12:13.070
  • EXODUS 13:2,
  • 00:12:13.070 --> 00:12:14.210
  • "CONSECRATE TO ME
  • 00:12:14.210 --> 00:12:16.000
  • ALL THE FIRSTBORN.
  • 00:12:16.000 --> 00:12:17.250
  • WHATEVER OPENS THE WOMB
  • 00:12:17.250 --> 00:12:19.050
  • AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:12:19.050 --> 00:12:20.160
  • BOTH OF MEN AND BEASTS,
  • 00:12:20.160 --> 00:12:21.290
  • IT IS MINE."
  • 00:12:21.290 --> 00:12:24.100
  • I'M READING THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:24.100 --> 00:12:25.270
  • ACCORDING TO OLD TESTAMENT LAW,
  • 00:12:25.270 --> 00:12:27.260
  • THE FIRSTBORN WAS TO BE EITHER
  • 00:12:27.260 --> 00:12:29.190
  • SACRIFICED OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:29.190 --> 00:12:31.140
  • THERE WAS NO THIRD OPTION.
  • 00:12:31.140 --> 00:12:33.160
  • FAST FORWARD
  • 00:12:33.160 --> 00:12:34.080
  • TO THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:12:34.080 --> 00:12:35.180
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST MEETS
  • 00:12:35.180 --> 00:12:37.230
  • JESUS CHRIST ON THE BANKS
  • 00:12:37.230 --> 00:12:39.090
  • OF THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 00:12:39.090 --> 00:12:40.280
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:12:40.280 --> 00:12:41.200
  • "BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
  • 00:12:41.200 --> 00:12:42.280
  • THAT TAKES AWAY THE SIN
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:44.060
  • OF THE WORLD,"
  • 00:12:44.060 --> 00:12:45.120
  • JOHN 1:29.
  • 00:12:45.120 --> 00:12:47.080
  • JESUS WAS GOD'S ONLY
  • 00:12:47.080 --> 00:12:48.180
  • BEGOTTEN SON.
  • 00:12:48.180 --> 00:12:50.090
  • HE HAD TO BE SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:50.090 --> 00:12:52.180
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:52.180 --> 00:12:54.000
  • GOD ALLOWED HIS SON,
  • 00:12:54.000 --> 00:12:55.290
  • A MALE LAMB,
  • 00:12:55.290 --> 00:12:57.110
  • WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE,
  • 00:12:57.110 --> 00:12:59.080
  • TO BE SACRIFICED FOR THE SINS
  • 00:12:59.080 --> 00:13:01.070
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:13:01.070 --> 00:13:02.160
  • THE POINT IS,
  • 00:13:02.160 --> 00:13:03.190
  • IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT CHRIST AS
  • 00:13:03.190 --> 00:13:06.010
  • YOUR SUBSTITUTE ON THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:06.010 --> 00:13:08.180
  • YOU MUST DIE FOR YOUR SIN,
  • 00:13:09.190 --> 00:13:12.190
  • BECAUSE THE WAGES OF SIN IS
  • 00:13:12.190 --> 00:13:15.120
  • DEATH.
  • 00:13:15.120 --> 00:13:16.240
  • JESUS PAID THE BILL FOR US
  • 00:13:16.240 --> 00:13:19.150
  • TO BE REDEEMED FROM THE POWER
  • 00:13:19.150 --> 00:13:21.250
  • OF SIN AND DARKNESS.
  • 00:13:21.250 --> 00:13:23.150
  • BECAUSE OF THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:25.050
  • WE ARE FREE,
  • 00:13:25.050 --> 00:13:26.130
  • WE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 00:13:26.130 --> 00:13:28.020
  • WE HAVE HEALING FROM SICKNESS
  • 00:13:28.020 --> 00:13:29.290
  • AND DISEASE.
  • 00:13:29.290 --> 00:13:31.100
  • THERE IS VICTORY OVER
  • 00:13:31.100 --> 00:13:32.260
  • THE WORLD, THE FLESH,
  • 00:13:32.260 --> 00:13:34.050
  • AND THE DEVIL.
  • 00:13:34.050 --> 00:13:35.070
  • THERE'S THE PROSPERITY
  • 00:13:35.070 --> 00:13:37.000
  • OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:13:37.000 --> 00:13:38.070
  • THE PEACE OF GOD THAT SURPASSES
  • 00:13:38.070 --> 00:13:40.180
  • UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:13:40.180 --> 00:13:41.290
  • HALLELUJAH FOR THE CROSS!
  • 00:13:41.290 --> 00:13:43.270
  • GIVE HIM PRAISE AND GLORY
  • 00:13:43.270 --> 00:13:45.140
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:13:45.140 --> 00:13:47.230
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:48.270 --> 00:13:51.270
  • CONCERNING FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:13:51.270 --> 00:13:53.200
  • WHATEVER IS DONE
  • 00:13:53.200 --> 00:13:54.240
  • WITH FIRST FRUITS DETERMINES

  • WHAT HAPPENS TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:13:57.130 --> 00:14:00.050
  • SO FOLLOW THIS;
  • 00:14:00.050 --> 00:14:01.210
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRSTBORN SON
  • 00:14:01.210 --> 00:14:03.090
  • OF ABRAHAM.
  • 00:14:03.090 --> 00:14:04.180
  • AS FIRSTBORN,
  • 00:14:04.180 --> 00:14:06.120
  • HE WAS TO BE REDEEMED
  • 00:14:06.120 --> 00:14:08.120
  • OR SACRIFICED.
  • 00:14:08.120 --> 00:14:10.050
  • WHEN ABRAHAM PUT ISAAC
  • 00:14:10.050 --> 00:14:11.110
  • ON THE ALTAR,
  • 00:14:11.110 --> 00:14:13.110
  • GOD SENT A RAM TIED BY THE
  • 00:14:13.110 --> 00:14:15.290
  • HORNS IN A THICKET TO REDEEM
  • 00:14:16.110 --> 00:14:19.110
  • ISAAC.
  • 00:14:19.110 --> 00:14:20.250
  • WHEN THE FIRST FRUITS WAS
  • 00:14:20.250 --> 00:14:21.290
  • GIVEN,
  • 00:14:21.290 --> 00:14:22.200
  • IT BRINGS A MIGHTY HARVEST.
  • 00:14:22.200 --> 00:14:24.140
  • FOLLOW THE HISTORY.
  • 00:14:24.140 --> 00:14:26.090
  • WHATEVER IS DONE WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:14:26.090 --> 00:14:27.250
  • PORTION DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:14:27.250 --> 00:14:30.070
  • TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:14:30.070 --> 00:14:31.270
  • WE GO TO CHURCH
  • 00:14:31.270 --> 00:14:32.240
  • ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:14:32.240 --> 00:14:34.110
  • IT DETERMINES THE QUALITY
  • 00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:36.220
  • OF THE REST OF THE SIX DAYS.
  • 00:14:36.220 --> 00:14:39.080
  • YOU GIVE TO GOD YOUR TITHE
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:41.110
  • FIRST,
  • 00:14:41.110 --> 00:14:42.050
  • AND HE BLESSES WHAT IS LEFT.
  • 00:14:42.050 --> 00:14:44.250
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:14:44.250 --> 00:14:47.040
  • HE HAD TWO SONS,
  • 00:14:47.040 --> 00:14:48.130
  • JACOB AND ESAU.
  • 00:14:48.130 --> 00:14:50.010
  • JACOB HAD 12 SONS,
  • 00:14:50.010 --> 00:14:51.290
  • AND THEIR DESCENDANTS BECAME
  • 00:14:51.290 --> 00:14:53.210
  • THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:14:53.210 --> 00:14:55.260
  • GOD SENT JOSEPH INTO EGYPT
  • 00:14:55.260 --> 00:14:58.050
  • WHERE HE BECAME
  • 00:14:58.050 --> 00:14:58.260
  • THE PRIME MINISTER.
  • 00:14:58.260 --> 00:15:00.110
  • JOSEPH SENT FOR HIS FAMILY,
  • 00:15:00.110 --> 00:15:02.070
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO WERE 70
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:04.130
  • IN NUMBER.
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:05.180
  • AND THEY STAYED IN EGYPT
  • 00:15:05.180 --> 00:15:07.080
  • FOR 430 YEARS.
  • 00:15:07.080 --> 00:15:09.180
  • THEY BECAME A MIGHTY NATION
  • 00:15:09.180 --> 00:15:11.250
  • OF ALMOST TWO MILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:11.250 --> 00:15:14.030
  • EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE
  • 00:15:14.030 --> 00:15:15.030
  • PERSECUTED,
  • 00:15:15.030 --> 00:15:16.130
  • THEY PROSPERED AND THEY GREW.
  • 00:15:16.130 --> 00:15:18.230
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:18.230 --> 00:15:19.220
  • BECAUSE THE FIRST FRUIT,
  • 00:15:19.220 --> 00:15:21.140
  • ISAAC ON MOUNT MORIAH,
  • 00:15:21.140 --> 00:15:23.260
  • HAD BEEN GIVEN TO GOD.
  • 00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:25.180
  • AND WHAT YOU DO WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:15:25.180 --> 00:15:27.000
  • FRUIT DETERMINES THE GUARANTEE
  • 00:15:27.000 --> 00:15:29.220
  • OF EVERYTHING THAT COMES
  • 00:15:29.220 --> 00:15:30.280
  • AFTER IT!
  • 00:15:30.280 --> 00:15:31.220
  • THAT'S WHY THEY ARE BLESSED
  • 00:15:31.220 --> 00:15:33.130
  • AND ALWAYS WILL BE BLESSED,
  • 00:15:33.130 --> 00:15:35.190
  • BECAUSE GOD IS KEEPING
  • 00:15:35.190 --> 00:15:37.110
  • HIS COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM!
  • 00:15:37.110 --> 00:15:39.110
  • GIVE THE LORD A SHOUT OF PRAISE
  • 00:15:39.110 --> 00:15:41.090
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:15:41.090 --> 00:15:43.070
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:44.250 --> 00:15:47.250
  • NOW LET ME SHOW YOU HOW THAT
  • 00:15:47.250 --> 00:15:48.200
  • WORKS IN REVERSE.
  • 00:15:48.200 --> 00:15:50.060
  • IF YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD FIRST,
  • 00:15:50.060 --> 00:15:52.160
  • IT DOESN'T STOP
  • 00:15:52.160 --> 00:15:53.130
  • GOD FROM BEING FIRST;
  • 00:15:53.130 --> 00:15:56.010
  • IT ONLY RELEASES THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:15:56.010 --> 00:15:57.290
  • OF GOD UPON YOU.
  • 00:15:57.290 --> 00:15:59.270
  • IT RELEASES THE CURSE UPON
  • 00:15:59.270 --> 00:16:02.040
  • EVERYTHING YOU PUT YOUR HANDS
  • 00:16:02.040 --> 00:16:03.190
  • TO FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:16:03.190 --> 00:16:06.060
  • UNTIL YOU GET YOUR ACT
  • 00:16:06.060 --> 00:16:07.070
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:16:07.070 --> 00:16:08.140
  • THE ONLY WAY OUT IS REDEMPTION,
  • 00:16:08.140 --> 00:16:10.230
  • WHICH MEANS TO BUY BACK
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:12.180
  • FROM DESTRUCTION BY OBEYING
  • 00:16:12.180 --> 00:16:15.050
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:15.260 --> 00:16:18.260
  • WOW.
  • 00:16:18.260 --> 00:16:21.010
  • CONSIDER THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:16:21.010 --> 00:16:22.180
  • AND THE FALL OF JERICHO.
  • 00:16:22.180 --> 00:16:24.130
  • FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS
  • 00:16:24.130 --> 00:16:25.160
  • OF SLAVERY IN EGYPT WAS
  • 00:16:25.160 --> 00:16:26.250
  • FOLLOWED BY 40 YEARS OF HEAT
  • 00:16:27.130 --> 00:16:30.130
  • AND GRIT IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:16:30.130 --> 00:16:32.260
  • WITH JOSHUA AS THEIR LEADER,
  • 00:16:32.260 --> 00:16:34.280
  • GOD RELEASED A PLAN THAT WOULD
  • 00:16:34.280 --> 00:16:36.250
  • BEGIN THE CONQUEST
  • 00:16:36.250 --> 00:16:38.160
  • OF THE HOLY LAND.
  • 00:16:38.160 --> 00:16:40.030
  • THINK OF JERICHO
  • 00:16:40.030 --> 00:16:41.070
  • AS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:41.070 --> 00:16:42.120
  • JERICHO'S THE CITY.
  • 00:16:42.120 --> 00:16:44.240
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY
  • 00:16:44.240 --> 00:16:46.040
  • THAT STOOD BETWEEN ISRAEL
  • 00:16:46.040 --> 00:16:48.030
  • AND THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:50.150
  • GOD MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE WAS
  • 00:16:50.150 --> 00:16:52.110
  • GIVING JERICHO TO THE JEWISH
  • 00:16:52.110 --> 00:16:54.290
  • PEOPLE AS A GIFT,
  • 00:16:54.290 --> 00:16:57.000
  • BECAUSE THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:16:57.000 --> 00:16:58.060
  • "I'M GOING TO FIGHT FOR YOU."
  • 00:16:58.060 --> 00:17:00.220
  • THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING
  • 00:17:00.220 --> 00:17:01.250
  • THAT WAS FORBIDDEN?
  • 00:17:01.250 --> 00:17:03.000
  • JOSHUA 6:18 AND 19,
  • 00:17:03.000 --> 00:17:05.130
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:17:05.130 --> 00:17:06.050
  • "THE GOLD AND THE SILVER
  • 00:17:06.050 --> 00:17:07.260
  • OF JERICHO BELONG TO ME.
  • 00:17:08.000 --> 00:17:11.000
  • AND YOU, BY ALL MEANS,
  • 00:17:11.000 --> 00:17:12.210
  • ABSTAIN FROM THE ACCURSED THING,
  • 00:17:12.210 --> 00:17:15.010
  • LEST YOU BECOME ACCURSED WHEN
  • 00:17:15.010 --> 00:17:17.110
  • YOU TAKE THE ACCURSED THING AND
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:19.000
  • MAKE THE CAMP OF ISRAEL A CURSE
  • 00:17:19.000 --> 00:17:21.220
  • AND A PLACE OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:17:21.280 --> 00:17:24.280
  • BUT ALL THE GOLD,
  • 00:17:24.280 --> 00:17:26.080
  • AND ALL THE SILVER,
  • 00:17:26.080 --> 00:17:27.240
  • AND ALL THE VESSELS OF IRON,
  • 00:17:27.240 --> 00:17:29.280
  • ARE CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:17:29.280 --> 00:17:31.290
  • THEY SHALL COME INTO
  • 00:17:31.290 --> 00:17:33.070
  • THE TREASURY OF THE LORD."
  • 00:17:33.070 --> 00:17:35.210
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:17:35.210 --> 00:17:36.250
  • BECAUSE ISRAEL FULLY UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:17:36.250 --> 00:17:38.190
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:17:38.190 --> 00:17:40.020
  • THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:17:40.020 --> 00:17:41.220
  • IN JERICHO BELONGED
  • 00:17:41.220 --> 00:17:43.080
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:17:43.080 --> 00:17:44.060
  • KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF IT,
  • 00:17:44.060 --> 00:17:45.150
  • BECAUSE GOD WAS GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:46.260
  • YOU EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WOULD
  • 00:17:46.260 --> 00:17:48.060
  • COME AFTER IT.
  • 00:17:48.060 --> 00:17:49.060
  • EVERYBODY GOT THE MESSAGE
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:51.080
  • BUT ONE GUY, ACHAN,
  • 00:17:52.010 --> 00:17:55.010
  • BECAUSE HE WAS THE SMART ALECK
  • 00:17:55.010 --> 00:17:57.110
  • WHO KNEW BETTER.
  • 00:17:57.110 --> 00:17:58.260
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE RELATIVES
  • 00:17:58.260 --> 00:18:00.030
  • THAT ALWAYS KNOW BETTER?
  • 00:18:00.030 --> 00:18:02.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:02.240 --> 00:18:03.120
  • THEY ALWAYS HAVE THE BETTER
  • 00:18:03.120 --> 00:18:04.160
  • IDEA,
  • 00:18:04.160 --> 00:18:05.160
  • AND IT ALWAYS TURNS OUT
  • 00:18:05.160 --> 00:18:06.230
  • TO BE A DISASTER.
  • 00:18:06.230 --> 00:18:08.200
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:08.200 --> 00:18:09.100
  • THE BATTLE OF AI,
  • 00:18:09.100 --> 00:18:10.060
  • ISRAEL'S ARMY WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:18:10.160 --> 00:18:13.160
  • JOSHUA INQUIRED OF THE LORD,
  • 00:18:13.160 --> 00:18:15.090
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:18:15.090 --> 00:18:15.270
  • "GET UP;
  • 00:18:15.270 --> 00:18:16.130
  • THERE'S SIN IN THE CAMP."
  • 00:18:16.130 --> 00:18:17.270
  • AND THEY WENT TENT BY TENT
  • 00:18:17.270 --> 00:18:19.210
  • SEARCHING.
  • 00:18:19.210 --> 00:18:20.210
  • THEY SEARCHED 11 TRIBES.
  • 00:18:20.210 --> 00:18:23.070
  • AND THEY REACHED ACHAN'S TRIBE.
  • 00:18:23.070 --> 00:18:25.200
  • THE TRIBE OF JUDAH WAS LAST.
  • 00:18:25.200 --> 00:18:27.190
  • AND THEY CAME TO HIS TENT,
  • 00:18:27.190 --> 00:18:29.060
  • AND JOSHUA COMMANDED ACHAN
  • 00:18:29.060 --> 00:18:31.000
  • IN JOSHUA 7:19,
  • 00:18:31.000 --> 00:18:32.290
  • "GIVE GOD THE GLORY."
  • 00:18:32.290 --> 00:18:34.220
  • THAT MEANS THE THINGS
  • 00:18:34.220 --> 00:18:35.220
  • YOU'VE STOLEN,
  • 00:18:35.220 --> 00:18:37.000
  • GIVE THEM BACK.
  • 00:18:37.000 --> 00:18:38.120
  • ACHAN HAD STOLEN THE GLORY
  • 00:18:38.120 --> 00:18:39.250
  • OF GOD BECAUSE HE TOOK
  • 00:18:39.250 --> 00:18:40.280
  • THE THINGS THAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:18:40.280 --> 00:18:43.050
  • THE RESULT WAS THAT ACHAN,
  • 00:18:43.050 --> 00:18:46.050
  • HIS WIFE,
  • 00:18:46.050 --> 00:18:47.170
  • HIS SONS,
  • 00:18:47.170 --> 00:18:48.070
  • HIS DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:18:48.070 --> 00:18:48.290
  • HIS LIVESTOCK,
  • 00:18:48.290 --> 00:18:50.090
  • WERE STONED TO DEATH
  • 00:18:50.090 --> 00:18:51.150
  • BY ALL OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:18:51.150 --> 00:18:53.080
  • AND THEY STACKED THEIR BODIES
  • 00:18:53.080 --> 00:18:54.210
  • IN A PILE AND BURNED THEM WITH
  • 00:18:54.210 --> 00:18:56.120
  • FIRE TO PURGE ISRAEL OF THE SIN
  • 00:18:56.210 --> 00:18:59.210
  • OF TAKING WHAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:18:59.210 --> 00:19:02.130
  • THINK ABOUT THIS STORY.
  • 00:19:02.130 --> 00:19:03.240
  • BECAUSE OF ONE MAN'S
  • 00:19:03.240 --> 00:19:05.040
  • DISOBEDIENCE,
  • 00:19:05.040 --> 00:19:06.080
  • THE ENTIRE NATION SUFFERED
  • 00:19:06.080 --> 00:19:08.120
  • THE CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:19:08.120 --> 00:19:10.000
  • THEY HAD TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:19:10.000 --> 00:19:11.110
  • THE ACHAN FACTOR.
  • 00:19:11.110 --> 00:19:13.290
  • ARE YOU TAKING WHAT BELONGS
  • 00:19:13.290 --> 00:19:15.090
  • TO THE LORD?
  • 00:19:15.090 --> 00:19:16.270
  • IS YOUR FAMILY OR YOUR CHILDREN?
  • 00:19:16.270 --> 00:19:19.020
  • WILL GENERATIONS AFTER YOU
  • 00:19:19.020 --> 00:19:21.020
  • SUFFER BECAUSE OF YOUR REFUSAL
  • 00:19:21.020 --> 00:19:23.150
  • TO OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:19:23.150 --> 00:19:24.150
  • OF FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:19:24.150 --> 00:19:26.050
  • IF THE CHURCH IS ONE BODY
  • 00:19:26.050 --> 00:19:27.210
  • FITLY JOINED TOGETHER,
  • 00:19:27.210 --> 00:19:29.160
  • THEN YOUR DISOBEDIENCE AFFECTS
  • 00:19:29.160 --> 00:19:31.050
  • THE WHOLE BODY.
  • 00:19:31.050 --> 00:19:32.060
  • IF ONE MAN AFFECTED TWO MILLION
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:33.280
  • PEOPLE IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:19:33.280 --> 00:19:35.070
  • CERTAINLY ONE MAN
  • 00:19:35.070 --> 00:19:36.070
  • CAN AFFECT 22.000 HERE
  • 00:19:36.070 --> 00:19:38.040
  • AT CORNERSTONE CHURCH.
  • 00:19:38.040 --> 00:19:40.110
  • THIS EXPLAINS WHY SOME CHURCHES
  • 00:19:40.110 --> 00:19:42.050
  • DO NOT FINANCIALLY PROSPER.
  • 00:19:42.050 --> 00:19:44.110
  • WHEN ISRAEL WAS IN THE DESERT,
  • 00:19:44.110 --> 00:19:45.230
  • ALL THEY HAD WAS MANNA.
  • 00:19:45.230 --> 00:19:47.120
  • NONE OF THEIR CLOTHES WORE OUT.
  • 00:19:47.120 --> 00:19:49.000
  • THEY WERE NOT SICK NOR FEEBLE,
  • 00:19:49.000 --> 00:19:50.200
  • NO ONE, FOR 40 YEARS.
  • 00:19:50.240 --> 00:19:53.240
  • GOD'S ABUNDANCE WILL BE
  • 00:19:53.240 --> 00:19:55.170
  • WITHHELD FROM THE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:19:55.170 --> 00:19:58.100
  • REFUSE TO HONOR HIM AS FIRST.
  • 00:19:58.200 --> 00:20:01.200
  • THE SPIRIT OF ACHAN TAKES WHAT
  • 00:20:01.200 --> 00:20:03.080
  • BELONGS TO GOD AND KEEPS IT
  • 00:20:03.080 --> 00:20:05.140
  • FOR HIMSELF AT THE EXPENSE
  • 00:20:05.140 --> 00:20:08.000
  • OF OTHERS.
  • 00:20:08.000 --> 00:20:09.190
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:20:09.190 --> 00:20:10.200
  • AND TITHING.
  • 00:20:10.200 --> 00:20:11.140
  • TITHING IS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:11.140 --> 00:20:13.060
  • LET'S REVIEW WHAT WE'VE
  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:14.040
  • LEARNED.
  • 00:20:14.040 --> 00:20:15.050
  • THE FIRST FRUITS INCLUDE
  • 00:20:15.050 --> 00:20:16.090
  • CHILDREN, ANIMALS, CROPS,
  • 00:20:16.090 --> 00:20:18.190
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:20:18.190 --> 00:20:20.110
  • GOD SIMPLY SAYS,
  • 00:20:20.110 --> 00:20:21.130
  • I WANT TO BE THE FIRST
  • 00:20:21.130 --> 00:20:22.150
  • OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:20:22.150 --> 00:20:23.190
  • WHEN GOD DESTROYED JERICHO,
  • 00:20:23.190 --> 00:20:25.100
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY CONQUERED
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:27.040
  • ON THE WAY
  • 00:20:27.040 --> 00:20:27.210
  • TO THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:20:27.210 --> 00:20:28.260
  • IT WAS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:28.260 --> 00:20:30.010
  • AND GOD SAYS, IT'S MINE.
  • 00:20:30.010 --> 00:20:32.080
  • YOUR INCOME IS EITHER
  • 00:20:32.080 --> 00:20:33.230
  • CONSECRATED OR CURSED.
  • 00:20:33.230 --> 00:20:36.160
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:20:36.160 --> 00:20:37.140
  • IT'S EITHER CONSECRATED
  • 00:20:37.140 --> 00:20:38.270
  • OR CURSED.
  • 00:20:38.270 --> 00:20:39.180
  • THE TITHE, IN THE SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:20:39.180 --> 00:20:41.110
  • IS CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:20:41.110 --> 00:20:43.080
  • IF YOU KEEP IT FOR YOURSELF,
  • 00:20:43.080 --> 00:20:45.060
  • IT BECOMES A --
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:46.270
  • [Curse.]
  • 00:20:46.270 --> 00:20:47.190
  • -- CURSE,
  • 00:20:47.190 --> 00:20:49.040
  • BECAUSE IT'S STOLEN FROM GOD.
  • 00:20:49.040 --> 00:20:52.020
  • GOD MAKES THAT CLEAR
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:53.090
  • IN MALACHI 3:8 AND 9.
  • 00:20:53.090 --> 00:20:55.220
  • "WILL A MAN ROB GOD?
  • 00:20:55.220 --> 00:20:56.250
  • YOU'VE ROBBED ME.
  • 00:20:56.250 --> 00:20:58.120
  • HOW DID WE ROB YOU?"
  • 00:20:58.120 --> 00:20:59.280
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:20:59.280 --> 00:21:00.180
  • "YOU HAVE STOLEN THE TITHE
  • 00:21:00.180 --> 00:21:03.060
  • AND THE OFFERING FROM ME.
  • 00:21:03.060 --> 00:21:04.180
  • YOU ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE;
  • 00:21:04.180 --> 00:21:06.040
  • FOR YOU HAVE ROBBED ME."
  • 00:21:06.190 --> 00:21:09.190
  • THE TITHE IS A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:10.230 --> 00:21:13.230
  • IT'S NOT A DEBT WE OWE;
  • 00:21:13.230 --> 00:21:15.030
  • IT'S A SEED WE SOW.
  • 00:21:15.030 --> 00:21:17.170
  • WHEREVER THERE IS THE NUMBER
  • 00:21:17.170 --> 00:21:18.190
  • OF TEN INVOLVED,
  • 00:21:18.190 --> 00:21:20.090
  • THERE'S A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:20.090 --> 00:21:22.120
  • THE PLAGUES WERE USED TO SET
  • 00:21:22.120 --> 00:21:23.260
  • ISRAEL FREE FROM PHARAOH,
  • 00:21:23.260 --> 00:21:25.190
  • TEN PLAGUES.
  • 00:21:25.190 --> 00:21:26.250
  • TEN COMMANDMENTS WERE GIVEN
  • 00:21:26.250 --> 00:21:28.100
  • TO SET THE WORLD FREE
  • 00:21:28.100 --> 00:21:30.060
  • FROM THE TYRANNY OF EVIL.
  • 00:21:30.060 --> 00:21:32.060
  • TEN DONKEYS WERE SENT BY JOSEPH
  • 00:21:32.060 --> 00:21:34.070
  • TO BRING JACOB AND ALL OF
  • 00:21:34.070 --> 00:21:36.100
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY
  • 00:21:36.100 --> 00:21:38.120
  • TO THE LANDS OF EGYPT.
  • 00:21:38.120 --> 00:21:40.060
  • THE TENTH PART OF YOUR INCREASE
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:42.070
  • IS THE REDEMPTION
  • 00:21:42.070 --> 00:21:43.020
  • OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:21:43.020 --> 00:21:44.040
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GIVE 10%
  • 00:21:44.110 --> 00:21:47.110
  • OF YOUR INCOME
  • 00:21:47.110 --> 00:21:48.160
  • AND NOT GIVE THE FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:21:48.160 --> 00:21:50.160
  • THAT'S A QUESTION.
  • 00:21:50.160 --> 00:21:51.140
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:21:51.140 --> 00:21:53.090
  • LET'S PRETEND FOR JUST A MOMENT
  • 00:21:53.090 --> 00:21:54.290
  • THAT EACH ONE OF THESE ONE
  • 00:21:54.290 --> 00:21:57.070
  • DOLLAR BILLS IS A HUNDRED
  • 00:21:57.070 --> 00:21:59.140
  • DOLLAR BILL.
  • 00:21:59.140 --> 00:22:00.080
  • THIS IS A LOW BUCKET
  • 00:22:00.080 --> 00:22:01.230
  • ILLUSTRATION HERE.
  • 00:22:01.230 --> 00:22:03.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:03.120 --> 00:22:03.250
  • THE QUESTION IS;
  • 00:22:03.250 --> 00:22:04.270
  • CAN YOU GIVE GOD A TENTH
  • 00:22:04.270 --> 00:22:06.020
  • AND NOT PAY TITHE?
  • 00:22:06.020 --> 00:22:07.040
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:07.040 --> 00:22:09.200
  • IF YOU SIT DOWN TO PAY
  • 00:22:09.200 --> 00:22:10.230
  • YOUR BILLS,
  • 00:22:10.230 --> 00:22:11.150
  • AND YOU DO YOUR HOUSE NOTE,
  • 00:22:11.150 --> 00:22:13.220
  • YOUR CAR NOTE,
  • 00:22:13.220 --> 00:22:14.190
  • YOUR TWO CAR NOTES,

  • YOUR POODLE SHAMPOO,

  • GOD DON'T WANT THIS.
  • 00:22:25.170 --> 00:22:28.060
  • YOU KNOW ALL OF IT BELONGS
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:29.020
  • TO HIM.
  • 00:22:29.020 --> 00:22:29.170
  • AND IF HE WANTED,
  • 00:22:29.170 --> 00:22:30.070
  • HE'D GET IT ALL.
  • 00:22:30.070 --> 00:22:32.150
  • WHAT HE WANTS IS THIS ONE.
  • 00:22:32.150 --> 00:22:35.060
  • THIS IS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:37.190
  • WHEN HE GETS THIS ONE,
  • 00:22:37.190 --> 00:22:39.010
  • ALL OF THESE ARE CONSECRATED.
  • 00:22:39.010 --> 00:22:41.270
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:50.000

  • HIS ABUNDANCE,
  • 00:22:51.240 --> 00:22:53.180
  • UNLIMITED VICTORY,

  • UNLIMITED FAVOR,
  • 00:23:02.280 --> 00:23:05.180
  • THEN GIVE THE LORD THE FIRST
  • 00:23:05.180 --> 00:23:06.250
  • FRUITS AND YOU WILL PROSPER.
  • 00:23:06.250 --> 00:23:09.140
  • THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
  • 00:23:09.180 --> 00:23:12.180
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO EXPLODE

  • WITH ABUNDANCE.
  • 00:23:16.270 --> 00:23:18.220
  • BUT HE WILL NOT REWARD
  • 00:23:18.220 --> 00:23:21.080
  • DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:23:21.080 --> 00:23:23.150
  • LOOK AT THE ILLUSTRATIONS
  • 00:23:23.150 --> 00:23:24.240
  • OF ADAM AND EVE,
  • 00:23:24.240 --> 00:23:26.240
