  • I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:12.030 --> 00:00:19.150
  • GLORIA: Hello everybody. Welcome to the
  • 00:00:24.060 --> 00:00:26.000
  • believers voice of victory broadcast. Pastor George
  • 00:00:26.010 --> 00:00:29.050
  • is back with us again, giving us some more good information on
  • 00:00:29.060 --> 00:00:32.280
  • how to be blessed financially. Of course, if you're not
  • 00:00:32.290 --> 00:00:37.080
  • interested in that well you can watch some other thing on TV,
  • 00:00:37.090 --> 00:00:41.100
  • but if you want to be blessed, the best way to do it is with
  • 00:00:41.110 --> 00:00:45.070
  • the Bible. GEORGE: It is the will of God for us to be
  • 00:00:45.080 --> 00:00:49.110
  • prosperous. GLORIA: That's right. GEORGE: I learned that a
  • 00:00:49.120 --> 00:00:52.060
  • long time ago from a very smart woman of God. I'm sitting across
  • 00:00:52.070 --> 00:00:56.030
  • from her right now. GLORIA: Thank you very much. GEORGE: I
  • 00:00:56.040 --> 00:00:58.240
  • remember your book that came out. God's will is prosperity
  • 00:00:58.250 --> 00:01:01.050
  • and how revolutionary that was really to all of us. It was the
  • 00:01:01.060 --> 00:01:05.140
  • things that you taught in at the a hundred fold return, all of
  • 00:01:05.150 --> 00:01:10.010
  • the principles and these were some of those principles you
  • 00:01:10.020 --> 00:01:14.040
  • were teaching were hot off the press. These are things that the
  • 00:01:14.050 --> 00:01:17.010
  • Lord had just been showing you in revealing to about
  • 00:01:17.020 --> 00:01:20.000
  • prosperity. And you know, I really took that to heart and
  • 00:01:20.010 --> 00:01:23.190
  • really took it seriously between that book and Kenneth's book. On
  • 00:01:23.200 --> 00:01:27.260
  • the laws of prosperity. Boy that was a one, two punch that really
  • 00:01:27.270 --> 00:01:31.260
  • set my course straight and here we are, these outlines that we
  • 00:01:31.270 --> 00:01:36.140
  • provide for you, which by the way, you can get them kcm.org
  • 00:01:36.150 --> 00:01:39.270
  • and you can go to the picture of Gloria and me on the the website
  • 00:01:39.280 --> 00:01:44.030
  • and click onto it and it will take you not only to these notes
  • 00:01:44.040 --> 00:01:47.120
  • that we're teaching, but Gloria today is our 359th day of
  • 00:01:47.130 --> 00:01:53.130
  • prosperity. So soon we're going to be reaching our 365th day.
  • 00:01:53.140 --> 00:02:00.120
  • And what I'd like to do in the meantime, please, please send
  • 00:02:00.130 --> 00:02:03.160
  • your testimonials. If you've been following Gloria and me
  • 00:02:03.170 --> 00:02:07.060
  • talking about prosperity over all of these years and you've
  • 00:02:07.070 --> 00:02:10.170
  • seen changes, you've seen debt freedom, you've seen things
  • 00:02:10.180 --> 00:02:14.290
  • happen. I really want to make a call for testimonies and I'll
  • 00:02:15.000 --> 00:02:18.110
  • have our people here watching for those. They'll put them all
  • 00:02:18.120 --> 00:02:22.020
  • together. And what I'd like to do when we teach that week, the
  • 00:02:22.030 --> 00:02:26.090
  • week of our year anniversary, I want to read some testimonies
  • 00:02:26.100 --> 00:02:30.120
  • every day and get those people. GLORIA: You know that blesses
  • 00:02:30.130 --> 00:02:34.000
  • people, they know if it's working for them, it'll work for
  • 00:02:34.010 --> 00:02:36.090
  • me. GEORGE: Yeah. GLORIA: And so it's a good thing. GEORGE: Like
  • 00:02:36.100 --> 00:02:39.010
  • Keith Moore says, I'm in that blessing line. GLORIA: Me too!
  • 00:02:39.020 --> 00:02:41.180
  • GEORGE: Like I tell our church, it happens to me all the time.
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:44.230
  • That happens to me all the time. You're debt free. That happens
  • 00:02:44.240 --> 00:02:49.080
  • to me all the time. So we're getting to that place. And then
  • 00:02:49.090 --> 00:02:52.210
  • with those outlines, you can download them, you can
  • 00:02:52.220 --> 00:02:56.060
  • distribute them, you can give them to friends. We don't care.
  • 00:02:56.070 --> 00:03:00.200
  • You go right ahead and do that. 1.5 million of those have been
  • 00:03:00.210 --> 00:03:04.030
  • downloaded since you and I started together doing these
  • 00:03:04.040 --> 00:03:08.080
  • broadcasts. So I just wanted to let you know about that. That's
  • 00:03:08.090 --> 00:03:12.030
  • important to be able to study these out and to be able to get
  • 00:03:12.040 --> 00:03:15.020
  • this down on the inside to where you're renewing your mind. Renew
  • 00:03:15.030 --> 00:03:18.260
  • your mind that you are a prosperous person. GLORIA: Amen.
  • 00:03:18.270 --> 00:03:23.220
  • GEORGE: He wants, there's a word from the Lord that Kenneth gave
  • 00:03:23.230 --> 00:03:28.010
  • some years ago and the Lord said to him through Brother Copeland
  • 00:03:28.020 --> 00:03:33.150
  • that he wanted to bless us beyond our wildest dreams. He
  • 00:03:33.160 --> 00:03:41.200
  • wanted to bless us beyond our wildest dreams, I believe. And
  • 00:03:41.210 --> 00:03:47.230
  • so he has that for us. It's stored up for us. GLORIA:
  • 00:03:47.240 --> 00:03:50.290
  • Simple. He's done all the work. He'll do all the doing. We just
  • 00:03:51.000 --> 00:03:54.160
  • have to received. And He does what He saids. GEORGE: That's
  • 00:03:54.170 --> 00:03:57.010
  • right. GLORIA: And we can walk in a enormous, marvelous,
  • 00:03:57.020 --> 00:03:59.130
  • wonderful blessing all the days of our lives. All the days. All
  • 00:03:59.140 --> 00:04:06.160
  • the days of our long lives. GEORGE: I was out driving the
  • 00:04:06.170 --> 00:04:10.250
  • other day and the Lord just had me meditate on this for a while
  • 00:04:10.260 --> 00:04:13.150
  • while I was driving and that was, I'm a receiver, I'm a
  • 00:04:13.160 --> 00:04:16.110
  • receiver, Lord, whatever you want me to have, I'm a receiver.
  • 00:04:16.120 --> 00:04:22.000
  • I opened my heart to receive that and I get any kind of
  • 00:04:22.010 --> 00:04:27.050
  • poverty mentality, lack mentality out of my thinking
  • 00:04:27.060 --> 00:04:30.150
  • because I have a good father and he takes care of me and he takes
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:34.140
  • care of us. But you know, this leads me into what we're talking
  • 00:04:34.150 --> 00:04:37.240
  • about here because when let's say a person starts out, they
  • 00:04:37.250 --> 00:04:43.060
  • don't have anything, they begin to study these principles and
  • 00:04:43.070 --> 00:04:46.220
  • money starts coming into their lives, well then comes a new
  • 00:04:46.230 --> 00:04:50.010
  • challenge and that is how to handle that wealth. You know,
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:54.170
  • Gloria, there's so many people. GLORIA: And don't let it handle
  • 00:04:54.180 --> 00:04:58.170
  • you. GEORGE: And don't let it handle you. I like that. Don't
  • 00:04:58.180 --> 00:05:01.150
  • let it handle you. That's right. GLORIA: How to handle wealth and
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:04.220
  • not let it handle you, GEORGE: Not let it handle you. That
  • 00:05:04.230 --> 00:05:09.070
  • sounds like a gloryism to me. That's so good. Gloria, how did
  • 00:05:09.080 --> 00:05:19.120
  • you let it handle you? And that's what we have to do
  • 00:05:19.130 --> 00:05:24.050
  • because when money comes into things like for instance a
  • 00:05:24.060 --> 00:05:27.280
  • family, I'm thinking about a very wealthy, wealthy family
  • 00:05:27.290 --> 00:05:33.240
  • right now. I won't mention the name, but it's a very famous
  • 00:05:33.250 --> 00:05:37.030
  • wealthy family. And because of some things that I have known
  • 00:05:37.040 --> 00:05:41.250
  • about concerning them, when the patriarch of the family was in
  • 00:05:41.260 --> 00:05:45.150
  • the hospital starting to die, they were out side of the
  • 00:05:45.160 --> 00:05:49.030
  • hospital door fighting over who's going to get what?
  • 00:05:49.040 --> 00:05:53.070
  • Wrestling. That's what money does. If you don't get a handle
  • 00:05:53.080 --> 00:05:56.240
  • on it, if you don't let that, if you don't get a handle on that
  • 00:05:56.250 --> 00:06:01.000
  • now and how you're going to act and what you're going to be,
  • 00:06:01.010 --> 00:06:04.260
  • then it's going to, it'll, it'll chew you up and spit you out if
  • 00:06:04.270 --> 00:06:08.240
  • you can't, if you can't handle that. So that's why we're doing
  • 00:06:08.250 --> 00:06:12.090
  • this, Gloria. It's like Gloria and I are having a how to handle
  • 00:06:12.100 --> 00:06:14.280
  • wealth seminar. GLORIA: Okay. GEORGE: And how to do it in the
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:19.110
  • scripture. The foundation scripture is 1 Timothy 6:17-19
  • 00:06:19.120 --> 00:06:24.060
  • Paul told Timothy to "charge them that are rich in this
  • 00:06:24.070 --> 00:06:28.140
  • world, that they be not high minded nor trust in uncertain
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:32.210
  • riches, but in the living God." GLORIA: Amen. GEORGE: "Who gives
  • 00:06:32.220 --> 00:06:37.010
  • us richly all things to enjoy, that they do good, that they be
  • 00:06:37.020 --> 00:06:40.110
  • rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to
  • 00:06:40.120 --> 00:06:44.290
  • communicate, laying up in store for themselves a good foundation
  • 00:06:45.000 --> 00:06:48.040
  • against the time to come that they may lay hold on eternal
  • 00:06:48.050 --> 00:06:51.160
  • life." GLORIA: Praise God! Amen. GEORGE:So what we talked about
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:54.050
  • yesterday, Gloria, we talked about that, that point there. He
  • 00:06:54.060 --> 00:06:58.020
  • told Timothy to tell you, charge the rich people in your church
  • 00:06:58.030 --> 00:07:03.250
  • to not be high minded. Don't be arrogant and don't be filled
  • 00:07:03.260 --> 00:07:07.040
  • with pride. Stop controlling people. Stop pushing them
  • 00:07:07.050 --> 00:07:11.100
  • around. Stop ordering them around. That was, that's what
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:14.140
  • was going on in the church GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: So he told
  • 00:07:14.150 --> 00:07:16.180
  • them, you've got to teach people this. You got to teach them to
  • 00:07:16.190 --> 00:07:19.010
  • not be arrogant. Then he goes on here to say, nor trust in
  • 00:07:19.020 --> 00:07:24.200
  • uncertain certain riches, but. TOGETHER: in the living God
  • 00:07:24.210 --> 00:07:29.080
  • GEORGE: But let's look at this, don't trust in wealth. Look at
  • 00:07:29.090 --> 00:07:34.120
  • that NIV. Would you read the NIV translation and number one
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:38.010
  • there? GLORIA: Yeah, "Command those who are rich in this
  • 00:07:38.020 --> 00:07:40.280
  • present world. Not to be arrogant, nor to put their hope
  • 00:07:40.290 --> 00:07:44.220
  • in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope
  • 00:07:44.230 --> 00:07:47.280
  • in God, who richly provides us with everything for our
  • 00:07:47.290 --> 00:07:52.080
  • enjoyment." GEORGE: That's a good, that is a good translation
  • 00:07:52.090 --> 00:07:57.030
  • right there. GLORIA: That's good, that's excellent. GEORGE:
  • 00:07:57.040 --> 00:07:59.080
  • He don't we. That's where we put here. Where do you put your
  • 00:07:59.090 --> 00:08:02.080
  • hope? We put our hope in God. We put our hope in him and no
  • 00:08:02.090 --> 00:08:04.290
  • matter how much you have. No matter if you're at the starting
  • 00:08:05.000 --> 00:08:09.290
  • point and you're endeavoring to make it from paycheck to
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:13.140
  • paycheck, you, you, you then begin to study these principles
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:18.030
  • and you move from paycheck to paycheck to now you're, you got
  • 00:08:18.040 --> 00:08:22.040
  • some money leftover and now you're beginning to build your
  • 00:08:22.050 --> 00:08:25.160
  • reserves and your accounts are building up and as it begins to
  • 00:08:25.170 --> 00:08:28.240
  • grow and increase, you have to keep the same mentality that we
  • 00:08:28.250 --> 00:08:33.090
  • can not be arrogant. The more that comes in, we cannot be
  • 00:08:33.100 --> 00:08:36.210
  • arrogant, but we have to keep our trust in God. GLORIA: You
  • 00:08:36.220 --> 00:08:40.170
  • keep sowing. GEORGE: Yup, you keep sowing, you keep tithing.
  • 00:08:40.180 --> 00:08:42.230
  • Like you said, tithing really keeps you in a place of safety
  • 00:08:42.240 --> 00:08:48.020
  • and protection and stability. GLORIA: It does, it really does.
  • 00:08:48.030 --> 00:08:50.150
  • GEORGE: I use Gloria's words on that. That's so powerful. It
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:52.150
  • keeps us in a place of protection. Go ahead and read
  • 00:08:52.160 --> 00:08:55.040
  • the New Living on that one, Gloria. That's point two.
  • 00:08:55.050 --> 00:08:58.250
  • GLORIA: Point two "Teach those who are rich in this world not
  • 00:08:58.260 --> 00:09:02.180
  • to be proud nor to trust in their money, which is so
  • 00:09:02.190 --> 00:09:06.050
  • unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us
  • 00:09:06.060 --> 00:09:10.230
  • all we need for our enjoyment." Isn't that an awesome scripture.
  • 00:09:10.240 --> 00:09:16.190
  • GEORGE: It is, and the point being there is not to trust in
  • 00:09:16.200 --> 00:09:19.110
  • their money, which is so unreliable, but our trust should
  • 00:09:19.120 --> 00:09:23.140
  • be in Him. GLORIA: Amen. GEORGE: If we maintain our trust in Him,
  • 00:09:23.150 --> 00:09:28.000
  • the money's going to be there. It won't slip away. GLORIA: No,
  • 00:09:28.010 --> 00:09:32.210
  • and we'll know what to do. GEORGE: Yeah, we'll know what to
  • 00:09:32.220 --> 00:09:35.200
  • do. We'll know what to do with it. We'll know. GLORIA: How to
  • 00:09:35.210 --> 00:09:38.010
  • treat things, how to treat money, how to treat people.
  • 00:09:38.020 --> 00:09:40.040
  • GEORGE: Exactly in the message translation, "Tell those rich in
  • 00:09:40.050 --> 00:09:44.080
  • this world's wealth to quit being so full of themselves and
  • 00:09:44.090 --> 00:09:48.210
  • so obsessed with money, which is here today and gone tomorrow.
  • 00:09:48.220 --> 00:09:52.090
  • Tell them to go after God, who piles on all the riches we could
  • 00:09:52.100 --> 00:09:56.210
  • ever manage." Isn't that interesting that he says here he
  • 00:09:56.220 --> 00:10:01.210
  • says that which is here today and gone tomorrow. Well, that's
  • 00:10:01.220 --> 00:10:06.250
  • what happens, not to us. That doesn't happen to us. The
  • 00:10:06.260 --> 00:10:12.100
  • principle of here today gone tomorrow. If we're walking on
  • 00:10:12.110 --> 00:10:16.020
  • the Word, if we're keeping the Word of God first place, if
  • 00:10:16.030 --> 00:10:18.270
  • we're tithing, if we're doing the things that God is showing
  • 00:10:18.280 --> 00:10:21.230
  • us to do and we're being obedient to him and we're
  • 00:10:21.240 --> 00:10:24.060
  • walking in love with each other, then it won't be here today,
  • 00:10:24.070 --> 00:10:26.190
  • gone tomorrow. GLORIA: That's right. GEORGE: It will continue
  • 00:10:26.200 --> 00:10:30.010
  • to increase. GLORIA: You can see what a safeguard tithing is.
  • 00:10:30.020 --> 00:10:31.270
  • GEORGE: You really can. GLORIA: Because if you, if you're
  • 00:10:31.280 --> 00:10:34.120
  • trusting in your money instead of in your Father GEORGE: Yeah.
  • 00:10:34.130 --> 00:10:38.110
  • GLORIA: You won't want to tithe. GEORGE: Yeah. GLORIA: But we
  • 00:10:38.120 --> 00:10:41.160
  • trust in the Father, and he always gives us rich rewards,
  • 00:10:41.170 --> 00:10:46.170
  • blessings increase. It's the rewards of the tither is great.
  • 00:10:46.180 --> 00:10:52.090
  • GEORGE: Yeah and you don't, you don't get to the place where
  • 00:10:52.100 --> 00:10:55.270
  • it's here today, gone tomorrow. The Kingdom of God operates on
  • 00:10:55.280 --> 00:11:01.230
  • the principle of increase. Even if, I've got two scriptures
  • 00:11:01.240 --> 00:11:06.280
  • going on in my mind at once, GLORIA: Well we got time.
  • 00:11:06.290 --> 00:11:09.240
  • GEORGE: Let me, let me read them to you. GLORIA: Okay. GEORGE:
  • 00:11:09.250 --> 00:11:13.110
  • This, this first one that the Lord just dropped into my heart.
  • 00:11:13.120 --> 00:11:15.190
  • This is Psalm 115 and it says in verse 14 that's not on your page
  • 00:11:15.200 --> 00:11:19.010
  • there, I'm just jumping at this. The Lord says, "the Lord shall
  • 00:11:19.020 --> 00:11:21.250
  • increase you more and more, you and your children." GLORIA:
  • 00:11:21.260 --> 00:11:26.010
  • Isn't that great scripture. GEORGE: That's a wonderful
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:27.260
  • scripture. GLORIA: Mhm. GEORGE: But, we have to put the
  • 00:11:27.270 --> 00:11:29.250
  • principles of the Word of God in place and keep them in place.
  • 00:11:29.260 --> 00:11:33.090
  • And what you said about the tithe, now here's the scripture
  • 00:11:33.100 --> 00:11:36.050
  • about the tithe. GLORIA: Okay. GEORGE: Proverbs 3:9-10 "Honor
  • 00:11:36.060 --> 00:11:38.150
  • the Lord with your substance and with the first fruits of all
  • 00:11:38.160 --> 00:11:45.210
  • your increase, So shall your barns be filled with plenty and
  • 00:11:45.220 --> 00:11:50.110
  • your presses shall burst out with new wine," GLORIA: Praise
  • 00:11:50.120 --> 00:11:54.100
  • God! GEORGE: That's Proverbs 3:9-10. GLORIA: Amen. GEORGE: So
  • 00:11:54.110 --> 00:11:57.230
  • what happens is as we, as we regulate our lives, even if
  • 00:11:57.240 --> 00:12:01.170
  • money is growing, even if the wealth is growing, we regulate
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:04.060
  • our lives to make sure that we're following the principles
  • 00:12:04.070 --> 00:12:08.080
  • that the apostle Paul laid out in Timothy, and we are tither's.
  • 00:12:08.090 --> 00:12:11.200
  • The thing that I like about what you said is that when you're a
  • 00:12:11.210 --> 00:12:15.210
  • tither, that's the first thing you do. That's the first thing
  • 00:12:15.220 --> 00:12:19.230
  • you do when money comes in, is you tithe. So it puts your
  • 00:12:19.240 --> 00:12:23.190
  • attention on it, It gets your attention on the money, but it
  • 00:12:23.200 --> 00:12:29.100
  • gets your attention on the money that's going out, that belongs
  • 00:12:29.110 --> 00:12:32.180
  • to God. It really is, it's an exercise. GLORIA: God's money.
  • 00:12:32.190 --> 00:12:35.270
  • GEORGE: It's his money, so it's an exercise to keep us on track
  • 00:12:35.280 --> 00:12:38.200
  • that we've put in, we put in first place. The problem comes
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:43.070
  • in when you have wealthy people who have tithed and they were
  • 00:12:43.080 --> 00:12:47.170
  • tithers when they, when they had nearly nothing and now they've
  • 00:12:47.180 --> 00:12:51.270
  • amassed in their finances and they stop tithing. GLORIA: No,
  • 00:12:51.280 --> 00:12:56.120
  • no, no. GEORGE: So Paul in point four there, Gloria, in the
  • 00:12:56.130 --> 00:13:02.150
  • notes, Paul understood that the rich were tempted to replace
  • 00:13:02.160 --> 00:13:06.090
  • their trust in God with their trust and wealth. GLORIA: Oh,
  • 00:13:06.100 --> 00:13:09.270
  • that's a no, no. GEORGE: We can't do that. We can't do that.
  • 00:13:09.280 --> 00:13:11.260
  • I'm thinking about something right now that Brother Copeland
  • 00:13:11.270 --> 00:13:16.090
  • has taught me through the years and as executive director, boy,
  • 00:13:16.100 --> 00:13:19.180
  • I keep that, I have to keep that before me all the time. He said,
  • 00:13:19.190 --> 00:13:23.020
  • you cannot make decisions based on money. If you make decisions
  • 00:13:23.030 --> 00:13:26.170
  • based on money, you'll be wrong 99% of the time. GLORIA: That's
  • 00:13:26.180 --> 00:13:30.180
  • right, yeah. GEORGE: He said, you have to base your decisions
  • 00:13:30.190 --> 00:13:32.280
  • on the anointing and what the Spirit of God is leading you to
  • 00:13:32.290 --> 00:13:37.030
  • do. He said, when you do that, the money will be there. I
  • 00:13:37.040 --> 00:13:41.070
  • listened very carefully to him. Every conversation I have, when
  • 00:13:41.080 --> 00:13:46.190
  • he calls me, he, he called me early this morning about
  • 00:13:46.200 --> 00:13:51.160
  • something. GLORIA: He did? GEORGE: He did. GLORIA: Well
  • 00:13:51.170 --> 00:13:53.160
  • good for him. GEORGE: He was getting ready to come here and
  • 00:13:53.170 --> 00:13:56.130
  • it's, I have it on my phone as Kenneth Copeland. I mean because
  • 00:13:56.140 --> 00:14:00.120
  • when it comes on my phone, I don't let it ring twice. I
  • 00:14:00.130 --> 00:14:04.210
  • answer that phone. That's one of the main reasons I have a phone.
  • 00:14:04.220 --> 00:14:10.000
  • I've got it with me even right now, I have a phone to keep in
  • 00:14:10.010 --> 00:14:13.090
  • touch with my wife and to keep in touch with Kenneth Copeland
  • 00:14:13.100 --> 00:14:17.040
  • so that if he needs me for anything, I'm right there.
  • 00:14:17.050 --> 00:14:20.010
  • GLORIA: I appreciate that. GEORGE: I don't, I don't turn my
  • 00:14:20.020 --> 00:14:22.200
  • phone off at night. It sits right next to my bed because I
  • 00:14:22.210 --> 00:14:25.220
  • never know when Kenneth Copeland may call and he called me about
  • 00:14:25.230 --> 00:14:28.130
  • something this morning. He'd been in prayer about a decision
  • 00:14:28.140 --> 00:14:32.190
  • that we're making about something here. He said, George,
  • 00:14:32.200 --> 00:14:36.100
  • I think, I think, I believe that I've heard from the Lord and we
  • 00:14:36.110 --> 00:14:40.110
  • need to hold off on that decision right now. Well, I was
  • 00:14:40.120 --> 00:14:43.020
  • really thankful about that. I love when I get input from both
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:47.040
  • of you about things that helps me so much. But, but what he
  • 00:14:47.050 --> 00:14:50.210
  • said that what he said to me, we, we could have saved some
  • 00:14:50.220 --> 00:14:57.250
  • money over here with that if we had gone ahead and made that
  • 00:14:57.260 --> 00:15:01.210
  • decision. But he's listening to the Lord and I know he's got,
  • 00:15:01.220 --> 00:15:05.150
  • he's, he's hearing from God. GLORIA: Praise God, amen.
  • 00:15:05.160 --> 00:15:08.220
  • GEORGE: So the decision that he made was not based in money. It
  • 00:15:08.230 --> 00:15:12.080
  • was based in what he heard from the Lord. GLORIA: God. That's
  • 00:15:12.090 --> 00:15:16.050
  • good. GEORGE: So that's, that's something that's so important.
  • 00:15:16.060 --> 00:15:19.060
  • GLORIA: That's important, very important. GEORGE: For us to
  • 00:15:19.070 --> 00:15:21.070
  • know, but Paul understood the rich were tempted to replace
  • 00:15:21.080 --> 00:15:24.130
  • their trust in God and all that to say, Kenneth is trusting God.
  • 00:15:24.140 --> 00:15:26.130
  • He's trusting God for the particular thing that we're,
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:29.120
  • we're talking about and the thing that we're doing, he's
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:32.110
  • trusting the Lord in it. GLORIA: Amen. GEORGE: So you don't, you
  • 00:15:32.120 --> 00:15:35.010
  • do not, you know this, you don't go to him on the basis of money.
  • 00:15:35.020 --> 00:15:40.080
  • Kenneth, now this is going to cost too much. I can't even
  • 00:15:40.090 --> 00:15:45.040
  • believe I'm saying. GLORIA: That is not a valid. GEORGE: I can
  • 00:15:45.050 --> 00:15:46.120
  • hardly. GLORIA: That is not a valid argument with him. GEORGE:
  • 00:15:46.130 --> 00:15:50.050
  • I can hardly utter those words because. GLORIA: That's just too
  • 00:15:50.060 --> 00:15:52.270
  • much. GEORGE: When you're around 43 years, like I have been, you
  • 00:15:52.280 --> 00:15:55.260
  • learn, you learn how to operate with the Prophet and when the
  • 00:15:55.270 --> 00:15:59.040
  • Prophet says, I have heard from the Lord and we're doing this.
  • 00:15:59.050 --> 00:16:02.130
  • GLORIA: Zip it up. GEORGE: That's exactly, GLORIA: Don't
  • 00:16:02.140 --> 00:16:06.040
  • tell him why it won't work. GEORGE: That's exactly right.
  • 00:16:06.050 --> 00:16:10.070
  • GLORIA: No, it'll work. GEORGE: We made a decision about
  • 00:16:10.080 --> 00:16:12.190
  • something. He made a decision about something and I was, I was
  • 00:16:12.200 --> 00:16:14.170
  • getting a little bit of flack from the leaders around me about
  • 00:16:14.180 --> 00:16:17.270
  • it, questioning it, wondering about it. So we were over at
  • 00:16:17.280 --> 00:16:20.290
  • your house one day and I had all that team with me. And um, we,
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:23.230
  • it came to the point of discussing that thing that
  • 00:16:23.240 --> 00:16:28.060
  • Brother Copeland wanted to do. So I stood up, I stood up
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:31.200
  • amongst all of us. GLORIA: Get ready. Get ready, get ready.
  • 00:16:31.210 --> 00:16:34.190
  • GEORGE: I said, brother Copeland, I said, you have asked
  • 00:16:34.200 --> 00:16:36.280
  • us to do this certain certain thing that you wanted the Lord,
  • 00:16:36.290 --> 00:16:40.040
  • the Lord told you to do it. And I looked at him, I said, I said,
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:43.110
  • is that what you want us to do? Because I was making a point. I
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:48.200
  • want everybody in the room to hear it. But I said, is that
  • 00:16:48.210 --> 00:16:50.260
  • what you wanted us to do? And he looked at me with those Kenneth
  • 00:16:50.270 --> 00:16:54.060
  • Copeland eyes. He said, George, I have heard from the Lord.
  • 00:16:54.070 --> 00:16:58.280
  • Don't ask me again. Then he, and then he laughed. He laughed.
  • 00:16:58.290 --> 00:17:06.090
  • GLORIA: You got the point didn't you? GEORGE: But I got the point
  • 00:17:06.100 --> 00:17:09.260
  • and I, we just, we had to solidify that point. But we
  • 00:17:09.270 --> 00:17:13.160
  • based it. We trust God. We trust God. GLORIA: And we trust the
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:19.010
  • word. We trust the word, the word he speaks to us in our
  • 00:17:19.020 --> 00:17:21.290
  • hearts. GEORGE: Go to page two! GLORIA: And it works.
  • 00:17:22.000 --> 00:17:25.030
  • Hallelujah! GEORGE: If we are just talking up a storm here,
  • 00:17:25.040 --> 00:17:27.060
  • this is great. A gloria store. Page two, this is the rich young
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:31.130
  • ruler. And he was somebody that was controlled by finances. And
  • 00:17:31.140 --> 00:17:38.170
  • I mean we know the story of the rich young ruler. And for time
  • 00:17:38.180 --> 00:17:42.020
  • sake. What I'd like to do, you know, Jesus looked at him and
  • 00:17:42.030 --> 00:17:47.080
  • said, one thing that you lack, and he said, go sell everything
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:50.280
  • you have given to the poor and you'll have treasure in heaven.
  • 00:17:50.290 --> 00:17:53.240
  • Then follow me. And in verse 22.4, it says, and the man's
  • 00:17:53.250 --> 00:17:57.250
  • face fell and he went away sad because he had great wealth.
  • 00:17:57.260 --> 00:18:00.290
  • Well, obviously great wealth had him, but I want to quote here,
  • 00:18:01.000 --> 00:18:05.250
  • this is a quote from Gloria Copeland. You did a series
  • 00:18:05.260 --> 00:18:08.230
  • called the Kingdom of God, days of Heaven on earth. Excellent
  • 00:18:08.240 --> 00:18:12.070
  • series. Wow. Powerful. You were talking about this very story
  • 00:18:12.080 --> 00:18:16.030
  • about the rich young ruler and this is what you said. Jesus was
  • 00:18:16.040 --> 00:18:20.120
  • telling him to sell and give to the poor, but why did he tell
  • 00:18:20.130 --> 00:18:24.290
  • him that? And we don't have any record of anything of him saying
  • 00:18:25.000 --> 00:18:28.070
  • that to at any other time because that's what his problem,
  • 00:18:28.080 --> 00:18:31.070
  • that was his problem. He was keeping the commandments, he was
  • 00:18:31.080 --> 00:18:35.250
  • doing what was good, but he had this one problem. He was trying
  • 00:18:35.260 --> 00:18:39.150
  • to set him free so that he could trust in him trusting in riches.
  • 00:18:39.160 --> 00:18:43.120
  • GLORIA: Jesus was trying to set the man free. GEORGE: Jesus was
  • 00:18:43.130 --> 00:18:48.020
  • trying to set him free so he could trust in Jesus. Trusting
  • 00:18:48.030 --> 00:18:50.100
  • in riches is the danger of being caught up in the world system.
  • 00:18:50.110 --> 00:18:56.130
  • This world system can only go so far. It is not the answer to
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:19:01.040
  • every need. Thank God, I am not dependent upon the world system.
  • 00:19:01.050 --> 00:19:06.260
  • GLORIA: Think about it, George. There's no guarantee that goes
  • 00:19:06.270 --> 00:19:10.060
  • with the world system. GEORGE: None, whatsoever. GLORIA: But we
  • 00:19:10.070 --> 00:19:13.230
  • do have a guarantee that goes with the word of God. He's good
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:16.250
  • for it. He's good for it. You can trust him. GEORGE: There is
  • 00:19:16.260 --> 00:19:19.250
  • no guarantee with the world's system. This is the only
  • 00:19:19.260 --> 00:19:23.160
  • guarantee that we have. That's awesome. That's awesome. Let's
  • 00:19:23.170 --> 00:19:26.220
  • go through these. Let's do a lightening round together here
  • 00:19:26.230 --> 00:19:29.100
  • on this point c, let me read this first scripture. Then you
  • 00:19:29.110 --> 00:19:33.160
  • read the second one as we go down, but the first scripture is
  • 00:19:33.170 --> 00:19:37.110
  • this answers the question. Who Do you trust? Proverbs 11:28,
  • 00:19:37.120 --> 00:19:40.210
  • Trust in your money and down you go. But the Godly flourish like
  • 00:19:40.220 --> 00:19:43.150
  • leaves in spring, GLORIA: Praise God! GEORGE: Go ahead and read.
  • 00:19:43.160 --> 00:19:46.280
  • GLORIA: "Look what happens to mighty who don't trust in God.
  • 00:19:46.290 --> 00:19:50.040

  • like a bush in the wastelands; he will not see prosperity when
  • 00:21:00.270 --> 00:21:05.210
  • it comes. He will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:10.170
  • a salt land where no one lives. GEORGE: Now, that's the one who
  • 00:21:10.180 --> 00:21:15.060
  • trusts in himself. Yeah. Now here's the next two scriptures
  • 00:21:15.070 --> 00:21:18.120
  • following them. GLORIA: He will missed prosperity. GEORGE: But
  • 00:21:18.130 --> 00:21:21.030
  • here's what follows immediately. But blessed is the man who
  • 00:21:21.040 --> 00:21:25.070
  • trusts in the Lord whose confidence is in him. He will be
  • 00:21:25.080 --> 00:21:29.220
  • like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots from
  • 00:21:29.230 --> 00:21:34.010
  • this by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes, its leaves
  • 00:21:34.020 --> 00:21:37.230
  • are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and
  • 00:21:37.240 --> 00:21:42.030
  • never fails to bear fruit. GLORIA: Praise God! GEORGE: So
  • 00:21:42.040 --> 00:21:46.240
  • that's the difference between someone who trusts in the Lord.
  • 00:21:46.250 --> 00:21:49.110
  • Someone who doesn't trust him. GLORIA: Now, there's a couple of
  • 00:21:49.120 --> 00:21:52.100
  • things that stand out to me. GEORGE: Tell me. GLORIA: Let me
  • 00:21:52.110 --> 00:21:54.190
  • see. He does not feel, he will be like a tree planted by the
  • 00:21:54.200 --> 00:22:02.160
  • water. And then it says he does not fear. So fear is something
  • 00:22:02.170 --> 00:22:06.090
  • you want to watch for. Whether it's healing about your healing
  • 00:22:06.100 --> 00:22:09.220
  • or about your prosperity. Fear is the door, the open door for
  • 00:22:09.230 --> 00:22:12.270
  • the devil to come mess you up bad. Opposite of faith, If you
  • 00:22:12.280 --> 00:22:18.270
  • fear you're not in faith, the opposite of faith. When heat
  • 00:22:18.280 --> 00:22:22.240
  • comes, its leaves are always green. It does not fear. So
  • 00:22:22.250 --> 00:22:28.050
  • under pressure you could say, yeah, things are always green.
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:31.280
  • It's good. It's working. He has no worries. In a time of
  • 00:22:31.290 --> 00:22:34.070
  • drought, never fails to bear fruit. So you know, you could be
  • 00:22:34.080 --> 00:22:41.040
  • a farmer and you're not getting any rain, not getting any rain.
  • 00:22:41.050 --> 00:22:46.240
  • So this scripture tells us not to put our eyes on that, but to
  • 00:22:46.250 --> 00:22:51.180
  • put our eyes and trust in the Lord, he's got rain. GEORGE:
  • 00:22:51.190 --> 00:22:56.130
  • That's it. GLORIA: But fear has no rain. GEORGE: Yeah. GLORIA:
  • 00:22:56.140 --> 00:22:59.000
  • For that farmer. GEORGE: Yup. GLORIA: And faith has rain.
  • 00:22:59.010 --> 00:23:01.240
  • GEORGE: Even as wealth accumulates, there's fear that
  • 00:23:01.250 --> 00:23:04.190
  • they're going to lose it. So either way we cannot,
  • 00:23:04.200 --> 00:23:07.040
  • we cannot be in fear. How much time do we have
  • 00:23:07.050 --> 00:23:10.050
  • left? Absolutely. None! GLORIA: How did that
  • 00:23:10.060 --> 00:23:11.180
  • happened? Okay, George, and I'll be right back.
