  • And Gloria, it is great to be back with you again. What a time
  • 00:01:07.100 --> 00:01:10.150
  • we have had, over all of these broadcasts that we've done, and
  • 00:01:10.160 --> 00:01:14.290
  • I'm so excited about this week because this week as we reach
  • 00:01:15.000 --> 00:01:18.230
  • the Friday broadcast, we will have 365 days of prosperity.
  • 00:01:18.240 --> 00:01:24.220
  • Isn't that exciting? I remember when we first started teaching
  • 00:01:24.230 --> 00:01:29.280
  • on prosperity together and one of the first broadcast that you
  • 00:01:29.290 --> 00:01:33.180
  • and I did, I said, Gloria, you just can't exhaust the subject
  • 00:01:33.190 --> 00:01:36.260
  • of prosperity. And you said, let's try. GLORIA: We're still
  • 00:01:36.270 --> 00:01:40.150
  • trying. GEORGE: We're still trying. Well there's so much to
  • 00:01:40.160 --> 00:01:43.250
  • it. It's so vast. It is so vast and it's what God wants to do
  • 00:01:43.260 --> 00:01:47.170
  • for us. It is his will for us to prosper. GLORIA: Why do you
  • 00:01:47.180 --> 00:01:50.190
  • think Heaven's like it is. GEORGE: Well that's true.
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:53.200
  • Exactly. GLORIA: It's over the top. GEORGE: It's over the top.
  • 00:01:53.210 --> 00:01:57.050
  • And just before we started the broadcast today we were talking
  • 00:01:57.060 --> 00:02:01.110
  • about the garden of Eden and you made a great comment. You said,
  • 00:02:01.120 --> 00:02:05.000
  • you said that everything good was in the garden. And that's
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:08.250
  • what we're coming back to. We're coming back to days of the
  • 00:02:08.260 --> 00:02:12.000
  • garden of Eden. And so we've got as we moved towards our 365th
  • 00:02:12.010 --> 00:02:16.020
  • broadcast this week, it's so exciting. And Gloria, we have,
  • 00:02:16.030 --> 00:02:19.280
  • we have now on the notes that we've preached over 1.5 million
  • 00:02:19.290 --> 00:02:25.170
  • downloads of those notes and those notes are available to
  • 00:02:25.180 --> 00:02:29.020
  • you. Just go to kcm.org and look for the picture of Gloria and me
  • 00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:33.030
  • and you can click onto it and you can download all of the
  • 00:02:33.040 --> 00:02:36.040
  • notes that we've done from the very beginning as well as the
  • 00:02:36.050 --> 00:02:39.020
  • notes that we're doing here. And Gloria, I told you... GLORIA: I
  • 00:02:39.030 --> 00:02:42.120
  • believe for return on that. For us. You and me George. GEORGE:
  • 00:02:42.130 --> 00:02:44.200
  • Absolutely, yes. We'll take that. We'll take that. And what
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:45.290
  • I wanted to do on each one of these days, because it's so
  • 00:02:46.000 --> 00:02:50.010
  • special this week, just a couple of testimonies every. GLORIA:
  • 00:02:50.020 --> 00:02:53.140
  • Oh, that'd be good. I'd like to hear that. GEORGE: That I wanted
  • 00:02:53.150 --> 00:02:55.210
  • to read. So here's one. Uh, when George and Gloria prayed for
  • 00:02:55.220 --> 00:02:58.260
  • supernatural debt cancellation, I received a letter in the mail
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:03:02.170
  • that a large debt that was really weighing me down and
  • 00:03:02.180 --> 00:03:06.140
  • taking forever to pay off was cancelled. Glory to God. GLORIA:
  • 00:03:06.150 --> 00:03:10.230
  • You know what was possible. It was possible that, that person
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:14.230
  • that cancelled the debt saw those broadcasts. GEORGE: Well,
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:17.250
  • that's true. GLORIA: Isn't that fun. GEORGE: That's really, good
  • 00:03:17.260 --> 00:03:21.240
  • observation. Yeah. Here's another one. Thank you, for your
  • 00:03:21.250 --> 00:03:25.180
  • help with all your teachings on prosperity. Since July of this
  • 00:03:25.190 --> 00:03:29.110
  • year, I've been faithfully tithing and sowing and believing
  • 00:03:29.120 --> 00:03:32.120
  • God for a hundred-fold return. And praise God, I received a
  • 00:03:32.130 --> 00:03:35.180
  • blessing on December 15th, 2018. I thank you again. I'm filled
  • 00:03:35.190 --> 00:03:40.260
  • with faith filled words and now live my life according to the
  • 00:03:40.270 --> 00:03:44.100
  • word of God. GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: And then here's one.
  • 00:03:44.110 --> 00:03:46.240
  • I've been meditating on, "God's Will is Prosperity," and, "The
  • 00:03:46.250 --> 00:03:52.220
  • Laws of Prosperity," since late November of 2017 and you wrote
  • 00:03:52.230 --> 00:03:57.130
  • the book, God's will is prosperity. You wrote that in
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:04:01.020
  • 1978. So it's been, it's been around and this person just
  • 00:04:01.030 --> 00:04:04.190
  • found it in 2017. In addition to the debt free teaching, uh,
  • 00:04:04.200 --> 00:04:09.260
  • since starting on this journey of debt freedom and financial
  • 00:04:09.270 --> 00:04:13.120
  • increase, I've been releasing my faith for my household budget to
  • 00:04:13.130 --> 00:04:16.190
  • be met. And God has been faithful. On two occasions I've
  • 00:04:16.200 --> 00:04:19.220
  • had people put money in my hand and just last week between
  • 00:04:19.230 --> 00:04:22.190
  • Monday and Thursday, God blessed me with $500 in addition to
  • 00:04:22.200 --> 00:04:25.290
  • giving me a suggestion that saved me $50 a month on my
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:31.090
  • internet bill. The word works. GLORIA: Well, praise God.
  • 00:04:31.100 --> 00:04:33.210
  • Hallelujah. Doesn't that just tickle you? GEORGE: So people
  • 00:04:33.220 --> 00:04:35.150
  • are getting so much out of this. Well, Gloria, we began...
  • 00:04:35.160 --> 00:04:39.050
  • GLORIA: I've enjoyed it. GEORGE: We've began less time talking
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:41.290
  • about how to handle wealth and we spent a week talking about
  • 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:45.120
  • that. So, we're going into our second week now. And you have
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:48.160
  • there, uh, the outline of just the review. And I wanted to do a
  • 00:04:48.170 --> 00:04:53.000
  • quick review if we could of what we talk about last week. And
  • 00:04:53.010 --> 00:04:56.270
  • last week we talked about the fact that, rich is not a dirty
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:05:00.030
  • word, it is a Bible word. And Proverbs 10:22, "The blessing of
  • 00:05:00.040 --> 00:05:03.240
  • the Lord, it makes rich and he adds no sorrow with it." And we
  • 00:05:03.250 --> 00:05:09.190
  • found out that worldly wealth is about self. Godly wealth is
  • 00:05:09.200 --> 00:05:14.270
  • about serving others. Now I like this quote, Gloria, that you
  • 00:05:14.280 --> 00:05:18.200
  • gave. It says whether money is good or bad depends on who has
  • 00:05:18.210 --> 00:05:22.260
  • the money. GLORIA: That's right. GEORGE: Yeah. GEORGE: The
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:25.200
  • righteous, do good things with it. The wicked do bad things
  • 00:05:25.210 --> 00:05:28.280
  • with it. So when we're talking about the wealth. We're really
  • 00:05:28.290 --> 00:05:35.110
  • talking about something that is God's will for us to be able to
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:39.130
  • have our bills paid and with enough leftover to be able to do
  • 00:05:39.140 --> 00:05:44.050
  • the things that we desire to do in our lives. GLORIA: You know,
  • 00:05:44.060 --> 00:05:47.130
  • if you just looked at heaven, you could figure out that He's
  • 00:05:47.140 --> 00:05:50.220
  • not stingy. He has gold streets. Mansions. Whatever you want up
  • 00:05:50.230 --> 00:05:58.190
  • there. GEORGE: That's so true, Gloria. That's so true. GLORIA:
  • 00:05:58.200 --> 00:06:02.130
  • We're so slow to catch up. GEORGE: I know. GLORIA: But now
  • 00:06:02.140 --> 00:06:05.080
  • we are catching up. GEORGE: That goes right along with the
  • 00:06:05.090 --> 00:06:07.210
  • scripture. Thy will be done on earth as it as it is in heaven.
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:10.140
  • GLORIA: That's good. GEORGE: So we should be experiencing that
  • 00:06:10.150 --> 00:06:13.120
  • on earth. The goodness of God. Days manifest from Deuteronomy,
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:18.210
  • book of Deuteronomy, days of heaven on earth. Wow, I like
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:22.090
  • that heaven. GLORIA: And it is exactly the truth. I believe it
  • 00:06:22.100 --> 00:06:25.120
  • with all my heart. That's the will of God for us to have, to
  • 00:06:25.130 --> 00:06:28.220
  • be serving him with our whole heart. Obeying him, doing what
  • 00:06:28.230 --> 00:06:32.190
  • He says. Prospering in every direction, every need met.
  • 00:06:32.200 --> 00:06:36.000
  • Healed, well. Glory to God. GEORGE: Praise God. That's His
  • 00:06:36.010 --> 00:06:40.170
  • walking in love. GLORIA: Walking in love. GEORGE: Then during
  • 00:06:40.180 --> 00:06:43.050
  • that last week's broadcast on point B of your page there,
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:48.070
  • Gloria. Paul gave instructions to the rich. He said in 1st
  • 00:06:48.080 --> 00:06:52.190
  • Timothy 6:17 and 18 tell those of the King James says, charge
  • 00:06:52.200 --> 00:06:57.070
  • those who are rich in this world's wealth to quit being so
  • 00:06:57.080 --> 00:07:01.100
  • full of themselves and being so obsessed with money, which is
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:04.040
  • here today and gone tomorrow. Tell them to go after God who
  • 00:07:04.050 --> 00:07:07.050
  • piles on all the riches we could ever manage. I like that. To do
  • 00:07:07.060 --> 00:07:11.200
  • good, to be rich and helping others and to be extravagantly
  • 00:07:11.210 --> 00:07:17.090
  • generous. That's the message translation. GLORIA:
  • 00:07:17.100 --> 00:07:19.250
  • Extravagantly generous. GEORGE: Extravagantly generous. So Paul
  • 00:07:19.260 --> 00:07:23.210
  • didn't tell Timothy to throw the wealthy out of the church.
  • 00:07:23.220 --> 00:07:26.200
  • GLORIA: No GEORGE: No, on the contrary, he told Timothy to
  • 00:07:26.210 --> 00:07:30.080
  • instruct the wealthy, how they worked to conduct themselves.
  • 00:07:30.090 --> 00:07:34.230
  • GLORIA: That's the key of wealth, to having wealth, and
  • 00:07:34.240 --> 00:07:36.270
  • doing it right. It's knowing what the Bible says and do it,
  • 00:07:36.280 --> 00:07:41.020
  • right? GEORGE: Yup. GLORIA: And then you'll be okay. GEORGE: I
  • 00:07:41.030 --> 00:07:43.290
  • like that. Having wealth and doing it right. That's a good
  • 00:07:44.000 --> 00:07:47.190
  • title. Having wealth and doing it right. GLORIA: I'll write
  • 00:07:47.200 --> 00:07:50.190
  • that down. GEORGE: Well then finally, Gloria, in summary, we
  • 00:07:50.200 --> 00:07:53.080
  • talked about the character development for those who are
  • 00:07:53.090 --> 00:07:56.280
  • wealthy. How do we handle that wealth? how do we conduct
  • 00:07:56.290 --> 00:07:59.120
  • ourselves with wealth? and it says in that 1st Timothy 6. We
  • 00:07:59.130 --> 00:08:02.140
  • started talking about last time. Don't be high minded, don't be
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:07.000
  • arrogant because the wealthy people in Timothy's church were,
  • 00:08:07.010 --> 00:08:11.070
  • were doing that, they were being arrogant and Paul told them,
  • 00:08:11.080 --> 00:08:17.200
  • don't do that. Then, we talked about trusting in the living
  • 00:08:17.210 --> 00:08:19.280
  • God, not trusting in money but trusting in the living God. And
  • 00:08:19.290 --> 00:08:23.240
  • here's a quote from Kenneth down here, you'll have to judge
  • 00:08:23.250 --> 00:08:27.150
  • yourself every day of your life on your own inner attitude and
  • 00:08:27.160 --> 00:08:31.080
  • faith to make sure you are depending on God and not what
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:35.120
  • you have in the bank. Those are powerful words. Those are, those
  • 00:08:35.130 --> 00:08:40.160
  • are very strong words. GLORIA: Sometimes it's easier if you
  • 00:08:40.170 --> 00:08:43.100
  • don't have anything in the bank. GEORGE: That's true. GLORIA: You
  • 00:08:43.110 --> 00:08:46.210
  • have to defend on the word of God. GEORGE: You have to depend
  • 00:08:46.220 --> 00:08:49.250
  • on God. You have to depend on the him. So if you go to your
  • 00:08:49.260 --> 00:08:52.200
  • next page, Gloria. GLORIA: I can't get the top long sleeve
  • 00:08:52.210 --> 00:08:55.030
  • here. Oh I got it. Thank you very much. GEORGE: If you go to
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:57.260
  • the next page. So the next page, we're continuing on with what we
  • 00:08:57.270 --> 00:09:01.290
  • started on Friday and going back to our foundation scripture,
  • 00:09:02.000 --> 00:09:07.010
  • there Gloria. Charge them that are rich in this world, not to
  • 00:09:07.020 --> 00:09:10.230
  • be highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the
  • 00:09:10.240 --> 00:09:13.290
  • living God. GLORIA: Yes. Amen. GEORGE: Who gives us all things
  • 00:09:14.000 --> 00:09:16.290
  • richly to enjoy; that they do good. They'd be rich in good
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:21.070
  • works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate, laying
  • 00:09:21.080 --> 00:09:25.040
  • up in store for themselves, a good foundation against the time
  • 00:09:25.050 --> 00:09:29.030
  • to come that they may lay hold on eternal life. GLORIA: Now,
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:32.180
  • think about it, George. We've sown and we've reap, we've had
  • 00:09:32.190 --> 00:09:38.290
  • good harvest. But think about the harvest that is ahead for
  • 00:09:39.000 --> 00:09:42.150
  • us. Think about it. GEORGE: That is so true. What we have ahead
  • 00:09:42.160 --> 00:09:48.180
  • of us. Wow. GLORIA: When would you graduate on to the next
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:53.150
  • portion of our lives? GEORGE: You know, I hadn't thought about
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:57.110
  • that. Now, here's a title for you. Your harvest in heaven.
  • 00:09:57.120 --> 00:10:04.110
  • GLORIA: Okay. I like it. I like it. GEORGE: Oh, I've got the
  • 00:10:04.120 --> 00:10:07.050
  • glorious and anointing on me today. Our harvest in heaven.
  • 00:10:07.060 --> 00:10:11.040
  • What is waiting for us in heaven and the harvest that we have on
  • 00:10:11.050 --> 00:10:14.020
  • earth? It's huge. GLORIA: It's been awesome. GEORGE: Yes, it
  • 00:10:14.030 --> 00:10:16.260
  • has been awesome. Well, here in the scripture, Paul told,
  • 00:10:16.270 --> 00:10:20.130
  • GLORIA: You know, think about it. Now heaven is over in the
  • 00:10:20.140 --> 00:10:24.210
  • book. Let me, how many gold streets have you seen down here
  • 00:10:24.220 --> 00:10:28.210
  • on the earth? How many of all the things that the Bible
  • 00:10:28.220 --> 00:10:32.240
  • describes about heaven? That's so true. Everybody's got a
  • 00:10:32.250 --> 00:10:36.130
  • mansion. You think there are any rinky dinky little houses? No.
  • 00:10:36.140 --> 00:10:40.050
  • GEORGE: No, I dont think so. I don't think so. I think they're
  • 00:10:40.060 --> 00:10:44.070
  • all, they're all marvelous in magnificent places. GLORIA: And
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:47.180
  • then think about it. Yeah. When we get there, we'll have life
  • 00:10:47.190 --> 00:10:51.200
  • abundantly of cource. But there won't be any opposition.
  • 00:10:51.210 --> 00:10:57.230
  • There won't be any limit. Oh, as long as we walk with, we can do
  • 00:10:57.240 --> 00:11:04.060
  • anything but walk with the lord. GEORGE: That's true. GLORIA: Not
  • 00:11:04.070 --> 00:11:06.240
  • gonna have any trees up there. Nope. GEORGE: No limit, no
  • 00:11:06.250 --> 00:11:09.290
  • limit. GLORIA: Just blessing. Just everybody's well.
  • 00:11:10.000 --> 00:11:14.170
  • Everybody's full of joy, love, joy, peace, patience, goodness,
  • 00:11:14.180 --> 00:11:18.020
  • goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.
  • 00:11:18.030 --> 00:11:20.190
  • That's why it is in heaven. Wow. Well that'd be fun. GEORGE: Yes,
  • 00:11:20.200 --> 00:11:25.030
  • it will be. I'm looking forward to that. GLORIA: I'm going to
  • 00:11:25.040 --> 00:11:26.110
  • come see your house. GEORGE: And you can come visit mine. Maybe
  • 00:11:26.120 --> 00:11:31.100
  • it will be next door to each other, so we can keep talking
  • 00:11:31.110 --> 00:11:34.230
  • about prosperity through eternity. GLORIA: We'll really
  • 00:11:34.240 --> 00:11:37.040
  • be talking. GEORGE: We'll really be talking about prosperity. But
  • 00:11:37.050 --> 00:11:40.150
  • this, you know, and what we're talking about here, Paul told,
  • 00:11:40.160 --> 00:11:43.020
  • basically told the wealthy; Love God, don't love money. That's
  • 00:11:43.030 --> 00:11:47.070
  • big. That's big. GLORIA: That's vital. GEORGE: It's vital.
  • 00:11:47.080 --> 00:11:50.220
  • That's right. It's totally vital. And look at this
  • 00:11:50.230 --> 00:11:54.240
  • scripture here that I wrote down on point A. Number one. This is
  • 00:11:54.250 --> 00:11:57.240
  • 1st Timothy 6-9. But they that will be rich fall into
  • 00:11:57.250 --> 00:12:02.170
  • temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts,
  • 00:12:02.180 --> 00:12:06.090
  • which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of
  • 00:12:06.100 --> 00:12:10.010
  • money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after,
  • 00:12:10.020 --> 00:12:16.060
  • they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through
  • 00:12:16.070 --> 00:12:20.220
  • with many sorrows. So we find here, Gloria, a very important
  • 00:12:20.230 --> 00:12:23.270
  • point in this scripture is so miscommunicated when people say
  • 00:12:23.280 --> 00:12:29.080
  • that money is the root of all evil. That's not true. That's
  • 00:12:29.090 --> 00:12:32.240
  • not true. It's the love, the love of money. So we have to
  • 00:12:32.250 --> 00:12:38.210
  • make a decision. Do we love money or do we love God? Well of
  • 00:12:38.220 --> 00:12:41.090
  • course we love him. GLORIA: That's one valuable thing that
  • 00:12:41.100 --> 00:12:44.110
  • tithing does, Oh tell me it cures you from the love of
  • 00:12:44.120 --> 00:12:49.270
  • money. GEORGE: It does. GLORIA: Because and even if you tithe,
  • 00:12:49.280 --> 00:12:53.120
  • you know, you don't want to, you just do it because you have to,
  • 00:12:53.130 --> 00:12:57.140
  • that's not working. GEORGE: That's right. GLORIA: But
  • 00:12:57.150 --> 00:13:02.030
  • because the Lord says to do it and the blessings in it, it's a
  • 00:13:02.040 --> 00:13:05.020
  • blessing to get to tithed. And it's like all your other income
  • 00:13:05.030 --> 00:13:10.120
  • and everything else you do blessed GEORGE: And it keeps
  • 00:13:10.130 --> 00:13:13.160
  • you, like you just said, it keeps you from loving money
  • 00:13:13.170 --> 00:13:16.190
  • because that's the first. If you give the first, yeah, then your
  • 00:13:16.200 --> 00:13:21.150
  • barns will be overflowing with plenty. The vats will be
  • 00:13:21.160 --> 00:13:24.270
  • overflowing. GLORIA: That's how you overcome that. GEORGE: But
  • 00:13:24.280 --> 00:13:28.150
  • that you, we can't have the attitude that we love money
  • 00:13:28.160 --> 00:13:31.060
  • because the love of money is at the root of all evil. GLORIA: I
  • 00:13:31.070 --> 00:13:36.010
  • think some people have the attitude, well, I know the Bible
  • 00:13:36.020 --> 00:13:39.040
  • teaches tithing and I'm going to do it as soon as I have the
  • 00:13:39.050 --> 00:13:43.120
  • money. Don't you agree, that's what people do? I'm going to
  • 00:13:43.130 --> 00:13:48.270
  • tithed as soon i get the money. GEORGE: Or they say, I can't
  • 00:13:48.280 --> 00:13:51.220
  • afford to tithe. Well, I've heard you say this before. You
  • 00:13:51.230 --> 00:13:55.020
  • can't afford not to tithe, is so important. The 10% right off the
  • 00:13:55.030 --> 00:14:00.160
  • top and the Lord spoke to brother Copeland in 1982 to do
  • 00:14:00.170 --> 00:14:04.140
  • the same thing with Kenneth Copeland ministries. 10% of
  • 00:14:04.150 --> 00:14:08.060
  • everything that comes into this ministry goes right back out
  • 00:14:08.070 --> 00:14:10.140
  • again, and we sow it into other ministries to do the work of the
  • 00:14:10.150 --> 00:14:14.170
  • gospel all over the world. So we can't love money. that's a huge
  • 00:14:14.180 --> 00:14:19.020
  • point. GLORIA: That would be a big mistake. GEORGE: Well,
  • 00:14:19.030 --> 00:14:21.140
  • listen to this. This is 2 there. Ecclesiastes 5:10 and 11 this is
  • 00:14:21.150 --> 00:14:26.090
  • the NIV translation. Whoever loves money never has money
  • 00:14:26.100 --> 00:14:29.010
  • enough. That's right. Whoever loves wealth is never satisfied
  • 00:14:29.020 --> 00:14:32.160
  • with his income. This too is meaningless as goods increase.
  • 00:14:32.170 --> 00:14:38.010
  • So do those who consume them and what benefit are they to the
  • 00:14:38.020 --> 00:14:42.140
  • owner except to feast his eyes on them. So again, loving money.
  • 00:14:42.150 --> 00:14:46.070
  • We just have to settle the fact that we are not going to fall in
  • 00:14:46.080 --> 00:14:49.100
  • love with money, that we are in love with God. GLORIA: It won't
  • 00:14:49.110 --> 00:14:52.100
  • be, we're not going to put it in first places, instead of the
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:54.090
  • Lord. GEORGE: In Proverbs 8 read that one for me. GLORIA: I love
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:56.150
  • those who love me; and those that seek me, find me. with me;
  • 00:14:56.160 --> 00:14:59.290
  • riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity with me
  • 00:15:00.020 --> 00:15:05.140
  • are riches and honor. Enduring wealth and prosperity. My fruit
  • 00:15:05.150 --> 00:15:10.120
  • is better than fine gold; what I yield suppresses choice of
  • 00:15:10.130 --> 00:15:15.250
  • silver. I walk in the way of righteousness along the paths of
  • 00:15:15.260 --> 00:15:19.290
  • justice, bestowing wealth on those who love me. And making
  • 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:22.270
  • their treasuries fool. That's what the Lord says. I'll walk in
  • 00:15:22.280 --> 00:15:27.290
  • the way of righteousness along the paths of justice, bestowing
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:35.160
  • wealth on those who love me. Now, who would it be? He'd be
  • 00:15:35.170 --> 00:15:39.110
  • talking about in this context? would be those who put him first
  • 00:15:39.120 --> 00:15:43.060
  • with their money. GEORGE: Yes, exactly. GLORIA: Because the
  • 00:15:43.070 --> 00:15:45.210
  • root, the love of money's the root of all
  • 00:15:45.220 --> 00:15:47.240
  • evil. Yes. So the cure for that would
  • 00:15:47.250 --> 00:15:51.040
  • be loving God with your money and being a tither. GEORGE:
  • 00:15:51.050 --> 00:15:53.210
  • That's perfect! GLORIA: Isn't it? GEORGE: That's why, I like
  • 00:15:53.220 --> 00:15:56.030
  • coming and teaching with you. What you just said. GLORIA: I
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:59.090
  • like it too, George. Because I hear things. You teach me
  • 00:15:59.100 --> 00:16:02.030
  • things. GEORGE: Absolutely outstanding. He'd bestows wealth
  • 00:16:02.040 --> 00:16:05.120
  • on those who love me. That's what he does. So we have to, and
  • 00:16:05.130 --> 00:16:09.270
  • that's what Paul was telling Timothy, to not love money, but
  • 00:16:09.280 --> 00:16:16.120
  • to love God. To put him first, not to trust, not to trust in
  • 00:16:16.130 --> 00:16:22.070
  • uncertain riches, but to trust in the living God. That's what
  • 00:16:22.080 --> 00:16:26.050
  • we're supposed to do. All right, page two of our notes and we are
  • 00:16:26.060 --> 00:16:31.000
  • to seek after God and not after money. Let's read through these,
  • 00:16:31.010 --> 00:16:35.100
  • Gloria. GLORIA: Well I'm looking for page two. GEORGE: Page two
  • 00:16:35.110 --> 00:16:37.250
  • is right there. You got it. GLORIA: Okay. GEORGE: Psalm
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:42.120
  • 34:10. Seek God, not money. It says the lions grow weak and
  • 00:16:42.130 --> 00:16:47.240
  • hungry, but those who seek the Lord will lack, no good thing.
  • 00:16:47.250 --> 00:16:53.160
  • GLORIA: That's the truth. GEORGE: Read the 2nd Chronicles
  • 00:16:53.170 --> 00:16:55.250
  • 1, number 2 there, if you would. GLORIA: He set himself to seek
  • 00:16:55.260 --> 00:16:58.220
  • God in the days of Zechariah, who instructed him, in the
  • 00:16:58.230 --> 00:17:03.240
  • things of God: So Zachariah instructed him, in the things of
  • 00:17:03.250 --> 00:17:07.270
  • God and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper.
  • 00:17:07.280 --> 00:17:12.150
  • GEORGE: Yeah. GLORIA: See how tithing had helped you do that?
  • 00:17:12.160 --> 00:17:17.120
  • GEORGE: Oh, I see it! GLORIA: Instead of putting money first,
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:19.260
  • put God first. GEORGE: Put God first. GLORIA: And all the other
  • 00:17:19.270 --> 00:17:22.040
  • things, follow it. GEORGE: That's it. That's it. Everything
  • 00:17:22.050 --> 00:17:25.090
  • else, the wind. Well it opens the windows of heaven. GLORIA:
  • 00:17:25.100 --> 00:17:28.010
  • That's what it does. GEORGE: The windows of heaven. GLORIA:
  • 00:17:28.020 --> 00:17:30.180
  • Where's that scripture, George? GEORGE: That's Malachi. Malachi
  • 00:17:30.190 --> 00:17:33.090
  • 3:10. This just, this just hit me because you were talking
  • 00:17:33.100 --> 00:17:37.120
  • about heaven. GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: Tithing, not loving
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:41.070
  • money. Putting the tithe first, loving God with the tithe, opens
  • 00:17:41.080 --> 00:17:46.140
  • the windows of heaven. What you and I were just talking about a
  • 00:17:46.150 --> 00:17:50.120
  • little while ago was heaven itself and what's in heaven? And
  • 00:17:50.130 --> 00:17:54.050
  • heaven's windows open up and pour out a blessing. GLORIA:
  • 00:17:54.060 --> 00:17:56.280
  • There's not room enough to receive! GEORGE: Not room enough
  • 00:17:56.290 --> 00:18:01.270
  • to receive it. Something is coming out of heaven, the
  • 00:18:01.280 --> 00:18:04.100
  • blessing is coming out of heaven. GLORIA: We you know, if
  • 00:18:04.110 --> 00:18:08.070
  • that's happened and you put money first. GEORGE: Right?
  • 00:18:08.080 --> 00:18:13.110
  • GLORIA: You wouldn't tithe because you put money first.
  • 00:18:13.120 --> 00:18:16.230
  • Money would help you die young and do all kinds of bad things
  • 00:18:16.240 --> 00:18:20.270
  • in your life. GEORGE: It would help you along the way, wouldn't
  • 00:18:20.280 --> 00:18:23.090
  • it? GLORIA: Yes, It would! GEORGE: Love for money.
  • 00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:25.270
  • GLORIA: You'd be doing the wrong thing. GEORGE: in 2nd
  • 00:18:25.280 --> 00:18:28.060
  • Chronicles 26:16, But after Isaiah become powerful,
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:31.210
  • his pride led to his downfall. He was unfaithful
  • 00:18:31.220 --> 00:18:34.280
  • to the LORD his God. So King Uzziah, he did
  • 00:18:34.290 --> 00:18:39.250
  • seek after God, but after a while his pride led to his
  • 00:18:39.260 --> 00:18:44.250
  • downfall. GLORIA: Why would he, What would his pride?
  • 00:18:44.260 --> 00:18:49.260
  • He was prospering, he was getting rich. His pride
  • 00:18:49.270 --> 00:18:53.080
  • got to him, but he didn't tithe, He didn't give God his part.
  • 00:18:53.090 --> 00:18:56.130
  • He kept God's part. GEORGE: Now that's so
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:18:58.260
  • powerful, what you just said! His pride, that's what
  • 00:18:58.270 --> 00:19:03.280
  • happens with wealth. If you don't stay on top of it,
  • 00:19:03.290 --> 00:19:07.250
  • you can get to a place where you get so full of pride. That you,
  • 00:19:07.260 --> 00:19:11.060
  • lord over it. GLORIA: Look what I've done. GEORGE: Look what
  • 00:19:11.070 --> 00:19:15.270
  • I've done. Look what I've accomplished. And you begin to
  • 00:19:15.280 --> 00:19:18.240
  • treat people with disrespect and dishonor because you have all of
  • 00:19:18.250 --> 00:19:21.030
  • this money. And that's not what God wants us to do. That's not
  • 00:19:21.040 --> 00:19:24.010
  • the way we act. Well, let's jump in. GLORIA: Okay, jump! GEORGE:
  • 00:19:24.020 --> 00:19:29.030
  • We've got what, three minutes left? I think. Two and a half
  • 00:19:29.040 --> 00:19:34.020
  • minutes left. Job 36;11 and 12. We are to obey God and not money
  • 00:19:34.030 --> 00:19:40.180
  • if they obey and serve him. They will spend the rest of their
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:44.070
  • days in prosperity and their years in contentment.
  • 00:19:44.080 --> 00:19:46.290
  • But if they do not listen, they will perish by the sword
  • 00:19:47.000 --> 00:19:51.180
  • and die without knowledge. And let me read here. Matthew 6:24;
  • 00:19:51.190 --> 00:19:54.150
  • No one can serve two masters. This is big. Either he will hate
  • 00:19:54.160 --> 00:19:59.100
  • the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one
  • 00:19:59.110 --> 00:20:02.220
  • and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
  • 00:20:02.230 --> 00:20:08.240
  • So I wrote down here the role of money in our lives. Some are
  • 00:20:08.250 --> 00:20:13.110
  • slaves to money, they're driven to earn it and they're driven to
  • 00:20:13.120 --> 00:20:17.070
  • keep it. Yeah. But on the other hand, money serves us. We don't
  • 00:20:17.080 --> 00:20:22.070
  • serve money. GLORIA: And then it says the love of money is the
  • 00:20:22.080 --> 00:20:27.200
  • root of all evil. So it's a dangerous thing, to love money
  • 00:20:27.210 --> 00:20:32.010
  • above God. GEORGE: Yeah, We can't do that. Psalm 104:14; He
  • 00:20:32.020 --> 00:20:39.070
  • causes the grass to grow for the cattle, And herb for the service
  • 00:20:39.080 --> 00:20:42.030
  • of man, So that he may bring forth food out the earth. Well,
  • 00:20:42.040 --> 00:20:45.250
  • the service of men, that is our seed, seed is to serve us. We
  • 00:20:45.260 --> 00:20:52.240
  • don't serve money, we don't love money. We love God with it. And
  • 00:20:52.250 --> 00:20:55.260
  • finally this last quote here. This is Brother Copeland, March
  • 00:20:55.270 --> 00:21:00.060
  • 25th, 2015. "If you make decisions based on money, you'll
  • 00:21:00.070 --> 00:21:05.010
  • be wrong. 99% of the time. If you make decisions based on the
  • 00:21:05.020 --> 00:21:11.030
  • anointing, you'll be right 99% of the time. Even if you miss
  • 00:21:11.040 --> 00:21:15.150
  • it, you'll be in position for God to correct you." So what we
  • 00:21:15.160 --> 00:21:19.120
  • have to do here is make sure that we have a right
  • 00:21:19.130 --> 00:21:24.010
  • relationship with money. We don't love it. We love God. And
  • 00:21:24.020 --> 00:21:28.170
  • that's what we're supposed to do with our way. GLORIA: Tithing
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:32.280
  • really is a protective thing. GEORGE: Oh, it is. GLORIA:
  • 00:21:32.290 --> 00:21:36.110
  • Because the love of money is easy to get into, but if you
  • 00:21:36.120 --> 00:21:42.000
  • take the top 10% in the best of your money, and you worship God
  • 00:21:42.010 --> 00:21:47.000
  • with it. You'll be safe and you'll prosper more. GEORGE: You
  • 00:21:47.010 --> 00:21:51.090
  • take the 10% worship God with it and you'll be safe. GLORIA: And
  • 00:21:51.100 --> 00:21:55.200
  • then you'll be abundantly, abundantly, abundantly. GEORGE:
  • 00:21:55.210 --> 00:21:59.160
  • Triple, abundantly blessed. GLORIA: What is he telling me?
  • 00:21:59.170 --> 00:22:03.210
  • He's saying we are out of time. GEORGE: He is. It's that time
  • 00:22:03.220 --> 00:22:06.110
  • again! GLORIA: George and I'll be right back.

  • true and obey his word and when we do that he can prosperous in

  • so we're safe and prosperous. Pastor George, what have you
  • 00:24:27.260 --> 00:24:32.010
  • got? GEORGE: Well, I have the product here, but let me mention
  • 00:24:32.020 --> 00:24:34.270
  • this to you. This was a discussion she and I had, uh,
  • 00:24:34.280 --> 00:24:38.200
  • before we started rolling the cameras here and you came up
  • 00:24:38.210 --> 00:24:42.040
  • with a great Gloriaism. Tithing is a shield to protect you from
  • 00:24:42.050 --> 00:24:46.240
  • the love of money. GLORIA: I believe that! GEORGE: That is
  • 00:24:46.250 --> 00:24:50.100
  • really, really good, Gloria. Tithing as a shield to protect
  • 00:24:50.110 --> 00:24:53.270
  • you from the love of money. And then Tim Fox hollered out here.
  • 00:24:53.280 --> 00:24:59.120
  • Tither qualifies for prosperity. GLORIA: Amen. GEORGE: So there
  • 00:24:59.130 --> 00:25:04.170
  • you go. Those, that's the revelation about tithing and
  • 00:25:04.180 --> 00:25:07.250
  • wealth. But to help to help the people we have these two
  • 00:25:07.260 --> 00:25:11.260
  • products that we want to give to them. First, the Gloria Copeland
  • 00:25:11.270 --> 00:25:15.070
  • book builds your financial future. You have to have a good
  • 00:25:15.080 --> 00:25:17.290
  • foundation for financial future. And that's what you talk about
  • 00:25:18.000 --> 00:25:20.210
  • in this book. And then Brother Copeland blessed to be a
  • 00:25:20.220 --> 00:25:23.120
  • blessing. And this, this would be a really a good foundational
  • 00:25:23.130 --> 00:25:27.040
  • teaching to anyone who is walking in prospering and they
  • 00:25:27.050 --> 00:25:30.200
  • need to know how to handle their money. And this goes right along
  • 00:25:30.210 --> 00:25:33.220
  • with the teaching that we're talking about here. GLORIA: And
  • 00:25:33.230 --> 00:25:36.200
  • once you get the word on tithing, faith comes because you
  • 00:25:36.210 --> 00:25:40.190
  • know you're going to prosper. When I do this, I'm going to
  • 00:25:40.200 --> 00:25:43.100
  • increase and it makes it a lot more fun. Plus the fact that it
  • 00:25:43.110 --> 00:25:46.030
  • works. So we're going to pray for you today. Father, we lift
  • 00:25:46.040 --> 00:25:49.120
  • up every person. We thank you Lord, that is your will for us
  • 00:25:49.130 --> 00:25:54.030
  • to prosper and you've given us how to prosper and we can all do
  • 00:25:54.040 --> 00:25:58.110
  • that and we will do it and we will prosper and be blessed.
  • 00:25:58.120 --> 00:26:01.290
  • Father, I pray for every person listening. I'm asking you
  • 00:26:02.000 --> 00:26:05.170
  • specifically today to prosper them financially, reveal to them
  • 00:26:05.180 --> 00:26:10.210
  • what they need to do to qualify and to be in the place of
  • 00:26:10.220 --> 00:26:14.010
  • abundant blessing. We thank you. It's your will for us to be
  • 00:26:14.020 --> 00:26:18.190
  • whole spirit, soul, body, financially, every way and we
  • 00:26:18.200 --> 00:26:23.070
  • expect we're so grateful to you. Thank you so much. In Jesus'
  • 00:26:23.080 --> 00:26:28.250
  • name, we say we are tithers and we are blessed in Jesus name.
  • 00:26:28.260 --> 00:26:35.140
