  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: THE LAW
  • 00:00:11.090 --> 00:00:14.090
  • OF FIRST FRUITS IS A GIANT STEP
  • 00:00:14.090 --> 00:00:16.170
  • IN CLIMBING THE STAIRWAY
  • 00:00:16.170 --> 00:00:17.270
  • TO THE STARS OF SUCCESS
  • 00:00:17.270 --> 00:00:20.010

  • WHEN YOU OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:00:22.120 --> 00:00:23.240
  • OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:00:23.240 --> 00:00:25.010
  • GOD'S PROMISE THAT HE WILL
  • 00:00:25.010 --> 00:00:27.070

  • ABUNDANTLY,

  • ABOVE WHAT YOU CAN ASK
  • 00:00:31.170 --> 00:00:32.230
  • OR IMAGINE.
  • 00:00:32.230 --> 00:00:34.110
  • IF YOU IGNORE THE LAW
  • 00:00:34.110 --> 00:00:35.290
  • OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:00:35.290 --> 00:00:37.280
  • GOD SAYS YOUR LACK
  • 00:00:37.280 --> 00:00:39.150
  • WILL NEVER END.

  • THE GREATEST FINANCIAL MANUAL

  • AND GIVE DIVINE EVIDENCE
  • 00:00:54.150 --> 00:00:56.170

  • THE QUALITY OF YOUR PROSPERITY
  • 00:01:02.110 --> 00:01:04.180
  • IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:01:04.180 --> 00:01:05.280
  • LET'S READ EXODUS 34:22
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:08.260
  • AND FOLLOWING.

  • FIRST FRUITS OF WHEAT HARVEST
  • 00:01:13.050 --> 00:01:15.040
  • AND THE FEAST OF INGATHERING
  • 00:01:15.040 --> 00:01:17.060
  • AT THE YEAR'S END.
  • 00:01:17.060 --> 00:01:18.260
  • THREE TIMES IN THE YEAR,

  • BEFORE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:01:22.140 --> 00:01:25.120
  • FOR I WILL CAST OUT THE NATIONS
  • 00:01:25.120 --> 00:01:27.070
  • BEFORE YOU,
  • 00:01:27.070 --> 00:01:28.150
  • AND ENLARGE YOUR BORDERS.
  • 00:01:28.150 --> 00:01:30.200
  • NEITHER WILL ANY MAN COVET

  • NOR SHALL THE SACRIFICE

  • OF THE FEAST OF PASSOVER BE LEFT
  • 00:01:44.170 --> 00:01:46.290
  • UNTIL MORNING.
  • 00:01:46.290 --> 00:01:48.110
  • THE FIRST OF THE FIRST FRUITS

  • OF YOUR LAND,

  • YOU SHALL BRING TO THE HOUSE

  • OF THE LORD YOUR GOD."
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:55.180
  • FATHER GOD,
  • 00:01:55.180 --> 00:01:56.170
  • THANK YOU FOR THE WORD
  • 00:01:56.170 --> 00:01:59.100
  • THAT IS A LIGHT UNTO OUR FEET
  • 00:01:59.100 --> 00:02:02.050
  • AND A LIGHT UNTO OUR PATHWAY.
  • 00:02:02.050 --> 00:02:05.000
  • LET US HEAR IT.
  • 00:02:05.000 --> 00:02:07.030
  • LET US EXPERIENCE IT.
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:09.170
  • LET US PRACTICE IT.
  • 00:02:09.170 --> 00:02:11.150
  • FOR IT IS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:02:11.150 --> 00:02:13.160
  • FOR THIS CONGREGATION
  • 00:02:13.160 --> 00:02:15.210
  • AND FOR RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE
  • 00:02:15.210 --> 00:02:17.260
  • WHO DESIRE TO LIVE
  • 00:02:17.260 --> 00:02:19.030
  • ON THE ECONOMY OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:02:19.030 --> 00:02:21.030
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:02:21.030 --> 00:02:23.040
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:02:23.040 --> 00:02:24.190
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:02:24.190 --> 00:02:25.250
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:02:25.250 --> 00:02:26.230
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:02:26.230 --> 00:02:28.100
  • LET'S BEGIN WITH THE BASICS
  • 00:02:28.100 --> 00:02:30.150
  • THAT GOD DEMANDS TO BE FIRST.
  • 00:02:32.010 --> 00:02:35.010
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:02:35.010 --> 00:02:35.270
  • "SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM
  • 00:02:35.270 --> 00:02:36.280
  • OF GOD
  • 00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:38.210
  • AND ALL OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:02:38.210 --> 00:02:41.030
  • AND ALL OF THESE THINGS SHALL
  • 00:02:41.030 --> 00:02:42.260
  • BE ADDED UNTO YOU."
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:44.260
  • HEAR THAT ONE PHRASE,
  • 00:02:44.260 --> 00:02:46.250
  • "ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:49.200
  • SHALL BE ADDED,"
  • 00:02:49.200 --> 00:02:50.290
  • BECAUSE YOU SEEK FIRST
  • 00:02:50.290 --> 00:02:53.000
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:02:53.000 --> 00:02:54.010
  • WHY DO WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY?
  • 00:02:54.010 --> 00:02:56.070
  • WE WORSHIP ON SUNDAY
  • 00:02:56.070 --> 00:02:57.070
  • BECAUSE JESUS ROSE
  • 00:02:57.070 --> 00:02:58.110
  • FROM THE DEAD ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:02:58.110 --> 00:03:00.060
  • SUNDAY IS THE FIRST DAY
  • 00:03:00.060 --> 00:03:01.130
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:01.130 --> 00:03:02.170
  • IT IS THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:03:02.170 --> 00:03:04.110
  • OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:03:04.110 --> 00:03:05.190
  • LISTEN.
  • 00:03:05.190 --> 00:03:06.220
  • YOUR SUCCESS FOR THE WEEK
  • 00:03:06.220 --> 00:03:09.020
  • BEGINS ON SUNDAY BY HONORING
  • 00:03:09.160 --> 00:03:12.160
  • THE LORD AS THE LORD
  • 00:03:12.160 --> 00:03:13.230
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:13.230 --> 00:03:15.050
  • THE FIRST FRUIT SANCTIFIES
  • 00:03:15.290 --> 00:03:18.290
  • THE FOLLOWING FRUIT.
  • 00:03:18.290 --> 00:03:20.170
  • PUTTING GOD FIRST IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:03:20.170 --> 00:03:22.240
  • ESTABLISHES HIS LORDSHIP.
  • 00:03:22.240 --> 00:03:25.110
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:03:25.110 --> 00:03:27.020
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:03:27.020 --> 00:03:28.210
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD,
  • 00:03:28.210 --> 00:03:30.010
  • THERE IS NO BLESSING,
  • 00:03:30.010 --> 00:03:31.140
  • THERE IS NO FAVOR,
  • 00:03:31.140 --> 00:03:32.270
  • THERE IS NO PROSPERITY;
  • 00:03:32.270 --> 00:03:34.250
  • AND YOU LIVE,
  • 00:03:34.250 --> 00:03:36.090
  • ACCORDING TO MALACHI,
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:37.190
  • UNDER A CURSE.
  • 00:03:37.190 --> 00:03:39.100
  • C.S. LEWIS SAYS,
  • 00:03:39.100 --> 00:03:40.130
  • "WHEN FIRST THINGS ARE PUT
  • 00:03:40.130 --> 00:03:41.200
  • FIRST,
  • 00:03:41.200 --> 00:03:42.210
  • SECOND THINGS BEGIN
  • 00:03:42.210 --> 00:03:44.130
  • TO INCREASE."
  • 00:03:44.130 --> 00:03:45.250
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN
  • 00:03:45.250 --> 00:03:46.130
  • TO BE FIRST?
  • 00:03:46.130 --> 00:03:47.220
  • FIRST IS PRECEDING ALL OTHERS
  • 00:03:47.220 --> 00:03:50.130
  • IN TIME IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE.
  • 00:03:51.240 --> 00:03:54.240
  • IF YOU GO OUT AND RUN A RACE
  • 00:03:54.240 --> 00:03:56.230
  • BY YOURSELF,
  • 00:03:56.230 --> 00:03:58.100
  • YOU COME IN FIRST,
  • 00:03:58.100 --> 00:04:00.140
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS NOBODY ELSE
  • 00:04:00.140 --> 00:04:01.240
  • RUNNING AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:04:01.240 --> 00:04:03.270
  • SO IF YOU REALLY ARE
  • 00:04:03.270 --> 00:04:04.280
  • NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:05.280
  • THERE HAS TO BE A SEQUENCE
  • 00:04:05.280 --> 00:04:07.110
  • OF SOMEBODY BEHIND YOU
  • 00:04:07.110 --> 00:04:09.240
  • BEFORE YOU CAN MAKE
  • 00:04:09.240 --> 00:04:10.230
  • THAT DECLARATION.
  • 00:04:10.230 --> 00:04:12.100
  • FIRST DOES NOT MEAN NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:04:12.100 --> 00:04:14.070
  • IT DOES NOT MEAN THE ONLY ONE.
  • 00:04:14.070 --> 00:04:16.240
  • NOTHING CAN BE FIRST UNLESS
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:18.190
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE TO BE
  • 00:04:18.190 --> 00:04:20.150
  • FIRST OF.
  • 00:04:20.150 --> 00:04:22.040
  • FIRST FRUITS IS THE OFFERING
  • 00:04:22.040 --> 00:04:24.070
  • OF THE FIRST GRAIN HARVESTED
  • 00:04:24.070 --> 00:04:25.250
  • IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:25.250 --> 00:04:27.090
  • IF YOU DID NOT BRING YOUR FIRST
  • 00:04:27.090 --> 00:04:28.230
  • FRUITS TO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:04:28.230 --> 00:04:31.220
  • GOD INSTRUCTED ISRAEL THAT
  • 00:04:31.220 --> 00:04:34.130
  • THERE WOULD BE NO ADDITIONAL
  • 00:04:34.130 --> 00:04:36.010
  • FRUIT FOR THE HARVEST;
  • 00:04:36.010 --> 00:04:38.050
  • THEREFORE,
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:40.140
  • WHENEVER YOU AS A FARMER,
  • 00:04:40.140 --> 00:04:42.210
  • IN THE TIME OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:04:42.210 --> 00:04:44.220
  • DID NOT HAVE THE BLESSINGS
  • 00:04:44.220 --> 00:04:45.230
  • OF GOD BECAUSE YOU REFUSED
  • 00:04:45.230 --> 00:04:48.170
  • TO BRING THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:04:48.170 --> 00:04:49.210
  • TO THE HOUSE OF GOD,
  • 00:04:49.210 --> 00:04:51.130
  • YOU WERE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:04:51.130 --> 00:04:53.110
  • GOD IS THE LORD OF ALL
  • 00:04:53.110 --> 00:04:54.230
  • OR HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:04:54.230 --> 00:04:56.290
  • GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:04:56.290 --> 00:04:58.100
  • AND PLACED THEM IN THE PARADISE
  • 00:04:58.100 --> 00:05:00.090
  • OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
  • 00:05:00.090 --> 00:05:02.010
  • ADAM WENT TO SLEEP
  • 00:05:02.010 --> 00:05:03.260
  • AND HE WOKE UP MARRIED.
  • 00:05:03.260 --> 00:05:05.230
  • IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE AN INSOMNIAC
  • 00:05:05.230 --> 00:05:07.020
  • OUT OF YOU.
  • 00:05:07.020 --> 00:05:08.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:08.230 --> 00:05:09.100
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO WORK
  • 00:05:09.100 --> 00:05:10.050
  • 60 HOURS A WEEK TO GAIN.
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:13.050
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO FIGHT
  • 00:05:13.050 --> 00:05:15.000
  • THE TRAFFIC GOING TO WORK
  • 00:05:15.000 --> 00:05:16.260
  • AND FROM WORK,
  • 00:05:16.260 --> 00:05:18.100
  • THE SMOG,
  • 00:05:18.100 --> 00:05:19.030
  • THE IRS,
  • 00:05:19.030 --> 00:05:20.130
  • AND THE INCESSANT RINGING
  • 00:05:20.130 --> 00:05:22.270
  • OF A CELL PHONE.
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:24.190
  • I'VE OFTEN SAID,
  • 00:05:24.190 --> 00:05:25.140
  • "IF I WAKE UP IN ETERNITY
  • 00:05:25.140 --> 00:05:26.230
  • AND HEAR A PHONE RING,
  • 00:05:26.230 --> 00:05:28.020
  • I KNOW I DIED AND WENT TO HELL."
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:31.010
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:31.010 --> 00:05:31.230
  • GOD GAVE ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:05:31.230 --> 00:05:33.050
  • ONE COMMAND,
  • 00:05:33.050 --> 00:05:34.160
  • "LEAVE THE FRUIT ON THE TREE
  • 00:05:34.160 --> 00:05:36.140
  • OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD
  • 00:05:36.140 --> 00:05:37.110
  • AND EVIL ALONE;
  • 00:05:37.110 --> 00:05:38.260
  • IT IS FORBIDDEN FRUIT."
  • 00:05:38.260 --> 00:05:41.030
  • DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
  • 00:05:41.030 --> 00:05:43.230
  • WHY DID GOD CREATE THAT TREE?
  • 00:05:43.230 --> 00:05:46.020
  • THE ANSWER IS TO SEE IF ADAM
  • 00:05:46.020 --> 00:05:48.020
  • AND EVE WOULD PUT HIM FIRST
  • 00:05:48.020 --> 00:05:49.280
  • WHENEVER SATAN CAME
  • 00:05:49.280 --> 00:05:50.290
  • TO TEMPT THEM,
  • 00:05:50.290 --> 00:05:52.070
  • BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT TEMPTATION
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:53.180
  • WAS COMING.
  • 00:05:53.180 --> 00:05:55.110
  • GOD WANTED TO SEE IF THEY WOULD
  • 00:05:55.110 --> 00:05:56.280
  • PUT THE THEIR WILL
  • 00:05:56.280 --> 00:05:58.190
  • ABOVE HIS WILL.
  • 00:05:58.190 --> 00:06:00.230
  • GET THAT PHRASE.
  • 00:06:00.230 --> 00:06:02.220
  • WHEN YOUR DESIRES,
  • 00:06:02.220 --> 00:06:04.130
  • YOUR PLANS,
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:05.230
  • YOUR IDEAS,
  • 00:06:05.230 --> 00:06:07.120
  • BECOME MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU
  • 00:06:07.120 --> 00:06:09.000
  • THAN GOD'S PLAN,
  • 00:06:09.000 --> 00:06:10.250
  • YOU HAVE ADOPTED THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:06:10.250 --> 00:06:12.150
  • OF LUCIFER.
  • 00:06:12.150 --> 00:06:14.150
  • LUCIFER CHALLENGED GOD.
  • 00:06:14.150 --> 00:06:17.140
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:06:17.140 --> 00:06:18.230
  • "I WILL ASCEND TO THE HILL
  • 00:06:18.230 --> 00:06:20.010
  • OF GOD, I WILL BE LIKE GOD,
  • 00:06:20.010 --> 00:06:21.270
  • I WILL, I WILL, I WILL..."
  • 00:06:21.270 --> 00:06:24.020
  • THOSE FIVE "I WILL'S"
  • 00:06:24.020 --> 00:06:25.110
  • ARE IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH.
  • 00:06:25.110 --> 00:06:27.090
  • THE FACT IS YOU CAN HAVE
  • 00:06:27.090 --> 00:06:28.180
  • THE ATTITUDE OF LUCIFER
  • 00:06:28.180 --> 00:06:30.080
  • AND CONFESS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:06:30.170 --> 00:06:33.170
  • WHEN YOUR WILL BECOMES GREATER
  • 00:06:33.170 --> 00:06:36.060
  • THAN GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:06:36.060 --> 00:06:37.190
  • YOU HAVE AN IDOLATRY PROBLEM.
  • 00:06:37.190 --> 00:06:40.000
  • WHEN JESUS AND THE 12 DISCIPLES
  • 00:06:40.000 --> 00:06:42.070
  • WERE REJECTED
  • 00:06:42.070 --> 00:06:43.000
  • BY THE SAMARITANS,
  • 00:06:43.000 --> 00:06:44.180
  • JAMES AND JOHN CAME TO JESUS
  • 00:06:45.190 --> 00:06:48.190
  • AND ASKED PERMISSION FROM JESUS
  • 00:06:48.190 --> 00:06:50.060
  • TO CALL FIRE DOWN ON THOSE
  • 00:06:50.060 --> 00:06:52.280
  • PEOPLE THAT WOULDN'T
  • 00:06:52.280 --> 00:06:53.240
  • ACCEPT THEM.
  • 00:06:53.240 --> 00:06:55.030
  • BURN THEM UP!
  • 00:06:55.030 --> 00:06:57.100
  • JESUS LOOKED AT THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:06:57.100 --> 00:06:59.230
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:06:59.230 --> 00:07:00.160
  • ASKING.
  • 00:07:00.160 --> 00:07:02.090
  • "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT MANNER
  • 00:07:02.090 --> 00:07:03.150
  • OF SPIRIT YOU'RE OF,"
  • 00:07:03.150 --> 00:07:04.240
  • LUKE 9:55.
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:07.110
  • SAINT PETER HAD LUCIFER'S
  • 00:07:07.110 --> 00:07:08.140
  • ATTITUDE.
  • 00:07:08.140 --> 00:07:09.030
  • PETER SAID TO JESUS,
  • 00:07:09.030 --> 00:07:10.140
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:10.140 --> 00:07:11.070
  • TO THE CROSS."
  • 00:07:11.070 --> 00:07:12.240
  • WHEN THE ROMAN SOLDIERS
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:14.010
  • IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
  • 00:07:14.010 --> 00:07:16.150
  • THREATENED TO TAKE HIM,
  • 00:07:16.150 --> 00:07:18.100
  • PETER SAID,
  • 00:07:18.100 --> 00:07:18.270
  • "WE'LL TAKE UP SWORDS
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:19.290
  • AND WE'LL DEFEND YOU."
  • 00:07:19.290 --> 00:07:22.030
  • JESUS LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:07:22.030 --> 00:07:23.110
  • "GET BEHIND ME SATAN."
  • 00:07:23.110 --> 00:07:24.250
  • WHY?
  • 00:07:24.250 --> 00:07:26.000
  • BECAUSE THE WHOLE PURPOSE
  • 00:07:26.000 --> 00:07:27.070
  • FOR CHRIST COMING INTO THE EARTH
  • 00:07:27.070 --> 00:07:29.240
  • WAS TO DIE ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:07:29.240 --> 00:07:32.000
  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION SAYS,
  • 00:07:32.000 --> 00:07:33.110
  • "FROM THE FOUNDATIONS
  • 00:07:33.110 --> 00:07:34.130
  • OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:35.150
  • HE WAS PREDESTINED TO DIE AS
  • 00:07:35.220 --> 00:07:38.220
  • THE LAMB OF GOD THAT TOOK AWAY
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:40.260
  • THE SINS OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:07:40.260 --> 00:07:42.210
  • AND WHEN PETER WAS SAYING,
  • 00:07:42.210 --> 00:07:43.250
  • "YOU DON'T NEED TO GO
  • 00:07:43.250 --> 00:07:44.220
  • TO THE CROSS,"
  • 00:07:44.220 --> 00:07:46.030
  • THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT SATAN
  • 00:07:46.030 --> 00:07:47.270
  • DID NOT WANT TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:47.270 --> 00:07:50.000
  • AND JESUS LOOKED AT
  • 00:07:50.000 --> 00:07:51.000
  • HIS FOLLOWER AND SAID,
  • 00:07:51.000 --> 00:07:52.280
  • "YOU ARE SPEAKING THE MESSAGE
  • 00:07:53.060 --> 00:07:56.060
  • OF SATAN IN MY EAR;
  • 00:07:56.060 --> 00:07:58.100
  • GET BEHIND ME."
  • 00:07:58.100 --> 00:07:59.220
  • TRANSLATION: SHUT UP.
  • 00:08:00.110 --> 00:08:03.110
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:04.180 --> 00:08:07.180
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:08:07.180 --> 00:08:09.000
  • IF YOUR ATTITUDE IS CONTROLLED
  • 00:08:09.000 --> 00:08:11.050
  • BY SATAN?
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:12.110
  • THE ANSWER IS,
  • 00:08:12.110 --> 00:08:13.150
  • WHEN YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:15.070
  • FIRST.
  • 00:08:15.070 --> 00:08:16.090
  • WHEN YOUR WILL
  • 00:08:16.090 --> 00:08:17.070
  • IS NOT GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:08:17.170 --> 00:08:20.170
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU ARE
  • 00:08:20.170 --> 00:08:21.150
  • IN A DANGEROUS TERRITORY.
  • 00:08:21.210 --> 00:08:24.210
  • SATAN DID NOT PUT GOD FIRST.
  • 00:08:24.210 --> 00:08:26.260
  • AND EVEN THOUGH HE WAS
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:27.230
  • AN ARCHANGEL,
  • 00:08:27.230 --> 00:08:29.130
  • ONE OF THE TOP THREE IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:31.080
  • GOD KICKED HIM OUT OF HEAVEN
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:33.000
  • AND HE BECAME THE DEVIL.
  • 00:08:33.000 --> 00:08:34.290
  • WHY?
  • 00:08:34.290 --> 00:08:35.230
  • BECAUSE HE WORSHIPED HIS WILL.
  • 00:08:35.230 --> 00:08:37.230
  • ADAM AND EVE HAD ONE THING
  • 00:08:37.230 --> 00:08:39.220
  • TO DO AND THEY BLEW THAT,
  • 00:08:39.220 --> 00:08:42.160
  • AND GOD KICKED THEM OUT
  • 00:08:42.160 --> 00:08:43.190
  • OF THE GARDEN FOR NOT PUTTING
  • 00:08:43.190 --> 00:08:45.270
  • HIS WILL FIRST.
  • 00:08:45.270 --> 00:08:47.170
  • EVE WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:47.170 --> 00:08:49.040
  • ADAM WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:50.230
  • THE GROUND WAS CURSED.
  • 00:08:50.230 --> 00:08:52.090
  • "THORNS AND THISTLES
  • 00:08:52.090 --> 00:08:53.190
  • SHALL IT GROW."
  • 00:08:53.190 --> 00:08:54.220
  • AND THAT CURSE LIVES
  • 00:08:54.220 --> 00:08:56.080
  • UNTIL THIS DAY!
  • 00:08:56.080 --> 00:08:58.230
  • IF JESUS IS NOT FIRST,
  • 00:08:58.230 --> 00:09:00.260
  • HE IS NOT LORD.
  • 00:09:00.260 --> 00:09:02.050
  • AND IF HE'S NOT LORD OF ALL,
  • 00:09:02.050 --> 00:09:04.150
  • THEN HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL.
  • 00:09:04.150 --> 00:09:07.070
  • CAN I GET A WITNESS TO THAT?
  • 00:09:07.090 --> 00:09:10.090
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:11.050 --> 00:09:14.050
  • NOW LET'S LOOK AT ABRAHAM.
  • 00:09:14.050 --> 00:09:15.240
  • WHY DID GOD CHOOSE ABRAHAM
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:17.050
  • TO BE THE FATHER OF ALL
  • 00:09:17.050 --> 00:09:18.030
  • WHO BELIEVE?
  • 00:09:18.030 --> 00:09:19.260
  • WHY IS IT THAT THOUSANDS
  • 00:09:19.260 --> 00:09:21.030
  • OF YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH,
  • 00:09:21.030 --> 00:09:22.220
  • PEOPLE STILL KNOW HIM BETTER
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:24.210
  • THAN MOST ANY PERSON
  • 00:09:24.210 --> 00:09:25.150
  • ON THE EARTH?
  • 00:09:25.150 --> 00:09:27.020
  • BECAUSE HE UNDERSTOOD THE LAW
  • 00:09:27.020 --> 00:09:28.120
  • OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:09:28.120 --> 00:09:29.280
  • WHEN ABRAHAM TIED ISAAC
  • 00:09:29.280 --> 00:09:31.190
  • AND PLACED HIM ON THE ALTAR
  • 00:09:31.190 --> 00:09:33.110
  • TO SACRIFICE HIM TO GOD,
  • 00:09:33.110 --> 00:09:35.160
  • HE LIFTED HIS DAGGER,
  • 00:09:35.160 --> 00:09:36.200
  • AND THE ANGEL OF GOD STOPPED
  • 00:09:36.200 --> 00:09:38.000
  • HIM.
  • 00:09:38.000 --> 00:09:39.040
  • AND THEN THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:09:39.040 --> 00:09:40.040
  • "I KNOW THAT YOU FEAR GOD,"
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:41.260
  • GENESIS 22:12.
  • 00:09:41.260 --> 00:09:43.270
  • THE LIVING BIBLE RENDERS

  • THIS VERSE THIS WAY;
  • 00:09:45.010 --> 00:09:46.080
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:46.080 --> 00:09:47.060
  • "I KNOW THAT GOD IS FIRST
  • 00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:49.050
  • IN YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:09:49.050 --> 00:09:51.030
  • ONLY WHEN YOU PUT GOD FIRST
  • 00:09:51.030 --> 00:09:53.160
  • IS GOD ABLE TO PROVIDE
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:55.170
  • WHAT HE PROMISES.
  • 00:09:55.170 --> 00:09:57.250
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:57.250 --> 00:09:59.140
  • THINK ABOUT IT.

  • BLESSED YOUR LIFE?

  • DO YOU WANT TO SHARE

  • YOUR BLESSINGS WITH OTHERS?

  • I'VE JUST READ IT TO YOU

  • IN THE TEXT.
  • 00:11:13.260 --> 00:11:15.100
  • GOD ESTABLISHED A SYSTEM
  • 00:11:15.100 --> 00:11:16.150
  • OF SACRIFICE IN WHICH ANIMALS
  • 00:11:16.150 --> 00:11:18.270
  • WERE TO BE BURNED AS AN OFFERING
  • 00:11:18.270 --> 00:11:20.140
  • UPON THE ALTAR.
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:21.190
  • IN LEVITICUS 1,
  • 00:11:21.190 --> 00:11:22.240
  • GOD DESIGNATED FIVE DIFFERENT
  • 00:11:22.240 --> 00:11:24.150
  • ANIMALS THAT WERE ACCEPTABLE
  • 00:11:24.150 --> 00:11:26.210
  • FOR SACRIFICES.
  • 00:11:26.210 --> 00:11:28.100
  • THE FIVE CLEAN ANIMALS WERE
  • 00:11:28.100 --> 00:11:29.290
  • OXEN, GOATS, SHEEP,
  • 00:11:29.290 --> 00:11:32.000
  • PIGEONS, AND TURTLE DOVES.

  • 00:11:43.250 --> 00:11:46.180
  • BEFORE THE LORD."
  • 00:11:46.180 --> 00:11:48.260
  • IF ALL YOU CAN AFFORD IS A BIRD,
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:52.090
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:54.170
  • IF YOU CAN AFFORD A THOUSAND
  • 00:11:54.170 --> 00:11:56.070
  • OXEN AS SOLOMON,
  • 00:11:56.070 --> 00:11:58.030
  • BRING THAT.
  • 00:11:58.030 --> 00:11:59.190
  • BUT DO NOT COME EMPTY HANDED.
  • 00:12:00.020 --> 00:12:03.020
  • IN THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:12:03.020 --> 00:12:04.070
  • EVERYTHING IS EITHER SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:04.070 --> 00:12:06.140
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:06.140 --> 00:12:07.090
  • GET THOSE TWO WORDS,
  • 00:12:07.090 --> 00:12:09.030
  • "SACRIFICED" OR "REDEEMED."
  • 00:12:09.030 --> 00:12:12.020
  • EXODUS 13:2,
  • 00:12:12.020 --> 00:12:13.160
  • "CONSECRATE TO ME
  • 00:12:13.160 --> 00:12:14.250
  • ALL THE FIRSTBORN.

  • AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:12:18.000 --> 00:12:19.110
  • BOTH OF MEN AND BEASTS,
  • 00:12:19.110 --> 00:12:20.240
  • IT IS MINE."
  • 00:12:20.240 --> 00:12:23.050
  • I'M READING THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:23.050 --> 00:12:24.220
  • ACCORDING TO OLD TESTAMENT LAW,
  • 00:12:24.220 --> 00:12:26.210
  • THE FIRSTBORN WAS TO BE EITHER
  • 00:12:26.210 --> 00:12:28.140
  • SACRIFICED OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:28.140 --> 00:12:30.090
  • THERE WAS NO THIRD OPTION.
  • 00:12:30.090 --> 00:12:32.110
  • FAST FORWARD
  • 00:12:32.110 --> 00:12:33.020
  • TO THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:12:33.020 --> 00:12:34.130
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST MEETS
  • 00:12:34.130 --> 00:12:36.170
  • JESUS CHRIST ON THE BANKS
  • 00:12:36.170 --> 00:12:38.040
  • OF THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 00:12:38.040 --> 00:12:39.230
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:12:39.230 --> 00:12:40.140
  • "BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
  • 00:12:40.140 --> 00:12:41.230
  • THAT TAKES AWAY THE SIN
  • 00:12:41.230 --> 00:12:43.000
  • OF THE WORLD,"
  • 00:12:43.000 --> 00:12:44.060
  • JOHN 1:29.
  • 00:12:44.060 --> 00:12:46.020
  • JESUS WAS GOD'S ONLY
  • 00:12:46.020 --> 00:12:47.120
  • BEGOTTEN SON.
  • 00:12:47.120 --> 00:12:49.030
  • HE HAD TO BE SACRIFICED
  • 00:12:49.030 --> 00:12:51.120
  • OR REDEEMED.
  • 00:12:51.120 --> 00:12:52.240
  • GOD ALLOWED HIS SON,
  • 00:12:52.240 --> 00:12:54.230
  • A MALE LAMB,
  • 00:12:54.230 --> 00:12:56.050
  • WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE,
  • 00:12:56.050 --> 00:12:58.020
  • TO BE SACRIFICED FOR THE SINS
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:12:59.290
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:12:59.290 --> 00:13:01.100
  • THE POINT IS,
  • 00:13:01.100 --> 00:13:02.130
  • IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT CHRIST AS
  • 00:13:02.130 --> 00:13:04.250
  • YOUR SUBSTITUTE ON THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:04.250 --> 00:13:07.120
  • YOU MUST DIE FOR YOUR SIN,
  • 00:13:08.120 --> 00:13:11.120
  • BECAUSE THE WAGES OF SIN IS
  • 00:13:11.120 --> 00:13:14.050
  • DEATH.
  • 00:13:14.050 --> 00:13:15.180
  • JESUS PAID THE BILL FOR US
  • 00:13:15.180 --> 00:13:18.090
  • TO BE REDEEMED FROM THE POWER
  • 00:13:18.090 --> 00:13:20.180
  • OF SIN AND DARKNESS.
  • 00:13:20.180 --> 00:13:22.080
  • BECAUSE OF THE CROSS,
  • 00:13:22.080 --> 00:13:23.280
  • WE ARE FREE,
  • 00:13:23.280 --> 00:13:25.060
  • WE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 00:13:25.060 --> 00:13:26.250
  • WE HAVE HEALING FROM SICKNESS
  • 00:13:26.250 --> 00:13:28.220
  • AND DISEASE.
  • 00:13:28.220 --> 00:13:30.020
  • THERE IS VICTORY OVER
  • 00:13:30.020 --> 00:13:31.190
  • THE WORLD, THE FLESH,
  • 00:13:31.190 --> 00:13:32.280
  • AND THE DEVIL.
  • 00:13:32.280 --> 00:13:34.000
  • THERE'S THE PROSPERITY
  • 00:13:34.000 --> 00:13:35.230
  • OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:13:35.230 --> 00:13:37.000
  • THE PEACE OF GOD THAT SURPASSES
  • 00:13:37.000 --> 00:13:39.110
  • UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:13:39.110 --> 00:13:40.220
  • HALLELUJAH FOR THE CROSS!
  • 00:13:40.220 --> 00:13:42.190
  • GIVE HIM PRAISE AND GLORY
  • 00:13:42.190 --> 00:13:44.070
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:13:44.070 --> 00:13:46.150
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:47.190 --> 00:13:50.190
  • CONCERNING FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:52.120
  • WHATEVER IS DONE
  • 00:13:52.120 --> 00:13:53.160
  • WITH FIRST FRUITS DETERMINES

  • WHAT HAPPENS TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:13:56.050 --> 00:13:58.250
  • SO FOLLOW THIS;
  • 00:13:58.250 --> 00:14:00.120
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRSTBORN SON
  • 00:14:00.120 --> 00:14:02.010
  • OF ABRAHAM.
  • 00:14:02.010 --> 00:14:03.100
  • AS FIRSTBORN,
  • 00:14:03.100 --> 00:14:05.040
  • HE WAS TO BE REDEEMED
  • 00:14:05.040 --> 00:14:07.040
  • OR SACRIFICED.
  • 00:14:07.040 --> 00:14:08.270
  • WHEN ABRAHAM PUT ISAAC
  • 00:14:08.270 --> 00:14:10.030
  • ON THE ALTAR,
  • 00:14:10.030 --> 00:14:12.020
  • GOD SENT A RAM TIED BY THE
  • 00:14:12.020 --> 00:14:14.200
  • HORNS IN A THICKET TO REDEEM
  • 00:14:15.030 --> 00:14:18.030
  • ISAAC.
  • 00:14:18.030 --> 00:14:19.160
  • WHEN THE FIRST FRUITS WAS
  • 00:14:19.160 --> 00:14:20.210
  • GIVEN,
  • 00:14:20.210 --> 00:14:21.110
  • IT BRINGS A MIGHTY HARVEST.
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:23.050
  • FOLLOW THE HISTORY.
  • 00:14:23.050 --> 00:14:25.000
  • WHATEVER IS DONE WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:14:25.000 --> 00:14:26.160
  • PORTION DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:14:26.160 --> 00:14:28.280
  • TO ALL THE REST.
  • 00:14:28.280 --> 00:14:30.180
  • WE GO TO CHURCH
  • 00:14:30.180 --> 00:14:31.150
  • ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:14:31.150 --> 00:14:33.020
  • IT DETERMINES THE QUALITY
  • 00:14:33.020 --> 00:14:35.130
  • OF THE REST OF THE SIX DAYS.
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:37.290
  • YOU GIVE TO GOD YOUR TITHE
  • 00:14:37.290 --> 00:14:40.020
  • FIRST,
  • 00:14:40.020 --> 00:14:40.260
  • AND HE BLESSES WHAT IS LEFT.
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:43.160
  • ISAAC WAS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:14:43.160 --> 00:14:45.250
  • HE HAD TWO SONS,
  • 00:14:45.250 --> 00:14:47.040
  • JACOB AND ESAU.
  • 00:14:47.040 --> 00:14:48.210
  • JACOB HAD 12 SONS,
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:50.190
  • AND THEIR DESCENDANTS BECAME
  • 00:14:50.190 --> 00:14:52.110
  • THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:54.170
  • GOD SENT JOSEPH INTO EGYPT
  • 00:14:54.170 --> 00:14:56.250
  • WHERE HE BECAME
  • 00:14:56.250 --> 00:14:57.160
  • THE PRIME MINISTER.
  • 00:14:57.160 --> 00:14:58.290
  • JOSEPH SENT FOR HIS FAMILY,
  • 00:14:58.290 --> 00:15:00.270
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO WERE 70
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:03.030
  • IN NUMBER.
  • 00:15:03.030 --> 00:15:04.080
  • AND THEY STAYED IN EGYPT
  • 00:15:04.080 --> 00:15:05.280
  • FOR 430 YEARS.
  • 00:15:05.280 --> 00:15:08.080
  • THEY BECAME A MIGHTY NATION
  • 00:15:08.080 --> 00:15:10.150
  • OF ALMOST TWO MILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:10.150 --> 00:15:12.220
  • EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE
  • 00:15:12.220 --> 00:15:13.230
  • PERSECUTED,
  • 00:15:13.230 --> 00:15:15.030
  • THEY PROSPERED AND THEY GREW.
  • 00:15:15.030 --> 00:15:17.130
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:17.130 --> 00:15:18.120
  • BECAUSE THE FIRST FRUIT,
  • 00:15:18.120 --> 00:15:20.030
  • ISAAC ON MOUNT MORIAH,
  • 00:15:20.030 --> 00:15:22.150
  • HAD BEEN GIVEN TO GOD.
  • 00:15:22.150 --> 00:15:24.070
  • AND WHAT YOU DO WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:15:24.070 --> 00:15:25.200
  • FRUIT DETERMINES THE GUARANTEE
  • 00:15:25.200 --> 00:15:28.110
  • OF EVERYTHING THAT COMES
  • 00:15:28.110 --> 00:15:29.170
  • AFTER IT!
  • 00:15:29.170 --> 00:15:30.120
  • THAT'S WHY THEY ARE BLESSED
  • 00:15:30.120 --> 00:15:32.030
  • AND ALWAYS WILL BE BLESSED,
  • 00:15:32.030 --> 00:15:34.080
  • BECAUSE GOD IS KEEPING
  • 00:15:34.080 --> 00:15:36.000
  • HIS COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM!
  • 00:15:36.000 --> 00:15:38.000
  • GIVE THE LORD A SHOUT OF PRAISE
  • 00:15:38.000 --> 00:15:39.280
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:15:39.280 --> 00:15:41.260
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:43.140 --> 00:15:46.140
  • NOW LET ME SHOW YOU HOW THAT
  • 00:15:46.140 --> 00:15:47.090
  • WORKS IN REVERSE.
  • 00:15:47.090 --> 00:15:48.250
  • IF YOU REFUSE TO PUT GOD FIRST,
  • 00:15:48.250 --> 00:15:51.040
  • IT DOESN'T STOP
  • 00:15:51.040 --> 00:15:52.010
  • GOD FROM BEING FIRST;
  • 00:15:52.010 --> 00:15:54.190
  • IT ONLY RELEASES THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:15:54.190 --> 00:15:56.170
  • OF GOD UPON YOU.
  • 00:15:56.170 --> 00:15:58.150
  • IT RELEASES THE CURSE UPON
  • 00:15:58.150 --> 00:16:00.230
  • EVERYTHING YOU PUT YOUR HANDS
  • 00:16:00.230 --> 00:16:02.070
  • TO FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:16:02.070 --> 00:16:04.240
  • UNTIL YOU GET YOUR ACT
  • 00:16:04.240 --> 00:16:05.250
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:16:05.250 --> 00:16:07.020
  • THE ONLY WAY OUT IS REDEMPTION,
  • 00:16:07.020 --> 00:16:09.110
  • WHICH MEANS TO BUY BACK
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:11.060
  • FROM DESTRUCTION BY OBEYING
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:13.230
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:14.140 --> 00:16:17.140
  • WOW.
  • 00:16:17.140 --> 00:16:19.180
  • CONSIDER THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:16:19.180 --> 00:16:21.060
  • AND THE FALL OF JERICHO.
  • 00:16:21.060 --> 00:16:23.010
  • FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS
  • 00:16:23.010 --> 00:16:24.030
  • OF SLAVERY IN EGYPT WAS
  • 00:16:24.030 --> 00:16:25.130
  • FOLLOWED BY 40 YEARS OF HEAT
  • 00:16:26.010 --> 00:16:29.010
  • AND GRIT IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:16:29.010 --> 00:16:31.130
  • WITH JOSHUA AS THEIR LEADER,
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:33.150
  • GOD RELEASED A PLAN THAT WOULD
  • 00:16:33.150 --> 00:16:35.130
  • BEGIN THE CONQUEST
  • 00:16:35.130 --> 00:16:37.030
  • OF THE HOLY LAND.
  • 00:16:37.030 --> 00:16:38.200
  • THINK OF JERICHO
  • 00:16:38.200 --> 00:16:39.240
  • AS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:16:39.240 --> 00:16:40.290
  • JERICHO'S THE CITY.
  • 00:16:40.290 --> 00:16:43.110
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY
  • 00:16:43.110 --> 00:16:44.210
  • THAT STOOD BETWEEN ISRAEL
  • 00:16:44.210 --> 00:16:46.200
  • AND THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:16:46.200 --> 00:16:49.020
  • GOD MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE WAS
  • 00:16:49.020 --> 00:16:50.280
  • GIVING JERICHO TO THE JEWISH
  • 00:16:50.280 --> 00:16:53.150
  • PEOPLE AS A GIFT,
  • 00:16:53.150 --> 00:16:55.170
  • BECAUSE THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:16:55.170 --> 00:16:56.230
  • "I'M GOING TO FIGHT FOR YOU."
  • 00:16:56.230 --> 00:16:59.070
  • THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING
  • 00:16:59.070 --> 00:17:00.120
  • THAT WAS FORBIDDEN?
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:01.160
  • JOSHUA 6:18 AND 19,
  • 00:17:01.160 --> 00:17:04.000
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:17:04.000 --> 00:17:04.210
  • "THE GOLD AND THE SILVER
  • 00:17:04.210 --> 00:17:06.120
  • OF JERICHO BELONG TO ME.
  • 00:17:06.160 --> 00:17:09.160
  • AND YOU, BY ALL MEANS,
  • 00:17:09.160 --> 00:17:11.080
  • ABSTAIN FROM THE ACCURSED THING,
  • 00:17:11.080 --> 00:17:13.170
  • LEST YOU BECOME ACCURSED WHEN
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:15.270
  • YOU TAKE THE ACCURSED THING AND
  • 00:17:15.270 --> 00:17:17.160
  • MAKE THE CAMP OF ISRAEL A CURSE
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:20.070
  • AND A PLACE OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:17:20.140 --> 00:17:23.140
  • BUT ALL THE GOLD,
  • 00:17:23.140 --> 00:17:24.230
  • AND ALL THE SILVER,
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:26.100
  • AND ALL THE VESSELS OF IRON,
  • 00:17:26.100 --> 00:17:28.130
  • ARE CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:17:28.130 --> 00:17:30.150
  • THEY SHALL COME INTO
  • 00:17:30.150 --> 00:17:31.230
  • THE TREASURY OF THE LORD."
  • 00:17:31.230 --> 00:17:34.070
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:17:34.070 --> 00:17:35.100
  • BECAUSE ISRAEL FULLY UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:17:35.100 --> 00:17:37.040
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:17:37.040 --> 00:17:38.170
  • THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:17:38.170 --> 00:17:40.070
  • IN JERICHO BELONGED
  • 00:17:40.070 --> 00:17:41.230
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:17:41.230 --> 00:17:42.210
  • KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF IT,
  • 00:17:42.210 --> 00:17:44.000
  • BECAUSE GOD WAS GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:17:44.000 --> 00:17:45.110
  • YOU EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WOULD
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:46.210
  • COME AFTER IT.
  • 00:17:46.210 --> 00:17:47.210
  • EVERYBODY GOT THE MESSAGE
  • 00:17:47.210 --> 00:17:49.230
  • BUT ONE GUY, ACHAN,
  • 00:17:50.160 --> 00:17:53.160
  • BECAUSE HE WAS THE SMART ALECK
  • 00:17:53.160 --> 00:17:55.250
  • WHO KNEW BETTER.
  • 00:17:55.250 --> 00:17:57.110
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE RELATIVES
  • 00:17:57.110 --> 00:17:58.150
  • THAT ALWAYS KNOW BETTER?
  • 00:17:58.150 --> 00:18:01.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:01.270
  • THEY ALWAYS HAVE THE BETTER
  • 00:18:01.270 --> 00:18:03.010
  • IDEA,
  • 00:18:03.010 --> 00:18:04.000
  • AND IT ALWAYS TURNS OUT
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:05.080
  • TO BE A DISASTER.
  • 00:18:05.080 --> 00:18:07.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:07.050 --> 00:18:07.240
  • THE BATTLE OF AI,
  • 00:18:07.240 --> 00:18:08.200
  • ISRAEL'S ARMY WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:18:09.000 --> 00:18:12.000
  • JOSHUA INQUIRED OF THE LORD,
  • 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:13.230
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:18:13.230 --> 00:18:14.110
  • "GET UP;
  • 00:18:14.110 --> 00:18:14.270
  • THERE'S SIN IN THE CAMP."
  • 00:18:14.270 --> 00:18:16.120
  • AND THEY WENT TENT BY TENT
  • 00:18:16.120 --> 00:18:18.050
  • SEARCHING.
  • 00:18:18.050 --> 00:18:19.050
  • THEY SEARCHED 11 TRIBES.
  • 00:18:19.050 --> 00:18:21.220
  • AND THEY REACHED ACHAN'S TRIBE.
  • 00:18:21.220 --> 00:18:24.040
  • THE TRIBE OF JUDAH WAS LAST.
  • 00:18:24.040 --> 00:18:26.030
  • AND THEY CAME TO HIS TENT,
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:27.200
  • AND JOSHUA COMMANDED ACHAN
  • 00:18:27.200 --> 00:18:29.140
  • IN JOSHUA 7:19,
  • 00:18:29.140 --> 00:18:31.130
  • "GIVE GOD THE GLORY."
  • 00:18:31.130 --> 00:18:33.060
  • THAT MEANS THE THINGS
  • 00:18:33.060 --> 00:18:34.060
  • YOU'VE STOLEN,
  • 00:18:34.060 --> 00:18:35.140
  • GIVE THEM BACK.
  • 00:18:35.140 --> 00:18:36.260
  • ACHAN HAD STOLEN THE GLORY
  • 00:18:36.260 --> 00:18:38.090
  • OF GOD BECAUSE HE TOOK
  • 00:18:38.090 --> 00:18:39.120
  • THE THINGS THAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:18:39.120 --> 00:18:41.180
  • THE RESULT WAS THAT ACHAN,
  • 00:18:41.190 --> 00:18:44.190
  • HIS WIFE,
  • 00:18:44.190 --> 00:18:46.000
  • HIS SONS,
  • 00:18:46.000 --> 00:18:46.210
  • HIS DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:18:46.210 --> 00:18:47.130
  • HIS LIVESTOCK,
  • 00:18:47.130 --> 00:18:48.220
  • WERE STONED TO DEATH
  • 00:18:48.220 --> 00:18:49.280
  • BY ALL OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:18:49.280 --> 00:18:51.210
  • AND THEY STACKED THEIR BODIES
  • 00:18:51.210 --> 00:18:53.040
  • IN A PILE AND BURNED THEM WITH
  • 00:18:53.040 --> 00:18:54.250
  • FIRE TO PURGE ISRAEL OF THE SIN
  • 00:18:55.040 --> 00:18:58.040
  • OF TAKING WHAT BELONGED TO GOD.
  • 00:18:58.040 --> 00:19:00.260
  • THINK ABOUT THIS STORY.
  • 00:19:00.260 --> 00:19:02.070
  • BECAUSE OF ONE MAN'S
  • 00:19:02.070 --> 00:19:03.170
  • DISOBEDIENCE,
  • 00:19:03.170 --> 00:19:04.200
  • THE ENTIRE NATION SUFFERED
  • 00:19:04.200 --> 00:19:06.250
  • THE CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:19:06.250 --> 00:19:08.120
  • THEY HAD TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:19:08.120 --> 00:19:09.240
  • THE ACHAN FACTOR.
  • 00:19:09.240 --> 00:19:12.120
  • ARE YOU TAKING WHAT BELONGS
  • 00:19:12.120 --> 00:19:13.210
  • TO THE LORD?
  • 00:19:13.210 --> 00:19:15.090
  • IS YOUR FAMILY OR YOUR CHILDREN?
  • 00:19:15.090 --> 00:19:17.140
  • WILL GENERATIONS AFTER YOU
  • 00:19:17.140 --> 00:19:19.140
  • SUFFER BECAUSE OF YOUR REFUSAL
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:21.270
  • TO OBEY THE LAW
  • 00:19:21.270 --> 00:19:22.270
  • OF FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:24.170
  • IF THE CHURCH IS ONE BODY
  • 00:19:24.170 --> 00:19:26.030
  • FITLY JOINED TOGETHER,
  • 00:19:26.030 --> 00:19:27.280
  • THEN YOUR DISOBEDIENCE AFFECTS
  • 00:19:27.280 --> 00:19:29.170
  • THE WHOLE BODY.
  • 00:19:29.170 --> 00:19:30.180
  • IF ONE MAN AFFECTED TWO MILLION
  • 00:19:30.180 --> 00:19:32.100
  • PEOPLE IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:19:32.100 --> 00:19:33.190
  • CERTAINLY ONE MAN
  • 00:19:33.190 --> 00:19:34.190
  • CAN AFFECT 22.000 HERE
  • 00:19:34.190 --> 00:19:36.160
  • AT CORNERSTONE CHURCH.
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:38.230
  • THIS EXPLAINS WHY SOME CHURCHES
  • 00:19:38.230 --> 00:19:40.170
  • DO NOT FINANCIALLY PROSPER.
  • 00:19:40.170 --> 00:19:42.230
  • WHEN ISRAEL WAS IN THE DESERT,
  • 00:19:42.230 --> 00:19:44.040
  • ALL THEY HAD WAS MANNA.
  • 00:19:44.040 --> 00:19:45.230
  • NONE OF THEIR CLOTHES WORE OUT.
  • 00:19:45.230 --> 00:19:47.110
  • THEY WERE NOT SICK NOR FEEBLE,
  • 00:19:47.110 --> 00:19:49.020
  • NO ONE, FOR 40 YEARS.
  • 00:19:49.050 --> 00:19:52.050
  • GOD'S ABUNDANCE WILL BE
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:53.280
  • WITHHELD FROM THE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:19:53.280 --> 00:19:56.210
  • REFUSE TO HONOR HIM AS FIRST.
  • 00:19:57.010 --> 00:20:00.010
  • THE SPIRIT OF ACHAN TAKES WHAT
  • 00:20:00.010 --> 00:20:01.190
  • BELONGS TO GOD AND KEEPS IT
  • 00:20:01.190 --> 00:20:03.250
  • FOR HIMSELF AT THE EXPENSE
  • 00:20:03.250 --> 00:20:06.110
  • OF OTHERS.
  • 00:20:06.110 --> 00:20:07.290
  • THE LAW OF FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:20:07.290 --> 00:20:09.010
  • AND TITHING.
  • 00:20:09.010 --> 00:20:09.240
  • TITHING IS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:09.240 --> 00:20:11.160
  • LET'S REVIEW WHAT WE'VE
  • 00:20:11.160 --> 00:20:12.140
  • LEARNED.
  • 00:20:12.140 --> 00:20:13.160
  • THE FIRST FRUITS INCLUDE
  • 00:20:13.160 --> 00:20:14.200
  • CHILDREN, ANIMALS, CROPS,
  • 00:20:14.200 --> 00:20:16.290
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:20:16.290 --> 00:20:18.210
  • GOD SIMPLY SAYS,
  • 00:20:18.210 --> 00:20:19.230
  • I WANT TO BE THE FIRST
  • 00:20:19.230 --> 00:20:20.260
  • OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:20:20.260 --> 00:20:22.000
  • WHEN GOD DESTROYED JERICHO,
  • 00:20:22.000 --> 00:20:23.210
  • IT WAS THE FIRST CITY CONQUERED
  • 00:20:23.210 --> 00:20:25.150
  • ON THE WAY
  • 00:20:25.150 --> 00:20:26.010
  • TO THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:20:26.010 --> 00:20:27.060
  • IT WAS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:20:27.060 --> 00:20:28.110
  • AND GOD SAYS, IT'S MINE.
  • 00:20:28.110 --> 00:20:30.180
  • YOUR INCOME IS EITHER
  • 00:20:30.180 --> 00:20:32.030
  • CONSECRATED OR CURSED.
  • 00:20:32.030 --> 00:20:34.260
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:20:34.260 --> 00:20:35.240
  • IT'S EITHER CONSECRATED
  • 00:20:35.240 --> 00:20:37.070
  • OR CURSED.
  • 00:20:37.070 --> 00:20:37.280
  • THE TITHE, IN THE SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:20:37.280 --> 00:20:39.210
  • IS CONSECRATED TO THE LORD.
  • 00:20:39.210 --> 00:20:41.180
  • IF YOU KEEP IT FOR YOURSELF,
  • 00:20:41.180 --> 00:20:43.150
  • IT BECOMES A --
  • 00:20:43.150 --> 00:20:45.070
  • [Curse.]
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:45.290
  • -- CURSE,
  • 00:20:45.290 --> 00:20:47.140
  • BECAUSE IT'S STOLEN FROM GOD.
  • 00:20:47.140 --> 00:20:50.120
  • GOD MAKES THAT CLEAR
  • 00:20:50.120 --> 00:20:51.180
  • IN MALACHI 3:8 AND 9.
  • 00:20:51.180 --> 00:20:54.020
  • "WILL A MAN ROB GOD?
  • 00:20:54.020 --> 00:20:55.040
  • YOU'VE ROBBED ME.
  • 00:20:55.040 --> 00:20:56.220
  • HOW DID WE ROB YOU?"
  • 00:20:56.220 --> 00:20:58.070
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:20:58.070 --> 00:20:58.250
  • "YOU HAVE STOLEN THE TITHE
  • 00:20:58.250 --> 00:21:01.150
  • AND THE OFFERING FROM ME.
  • 00:21:01.150 --> 00:21:02.270
  • YOU ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE;
  • 00:21:02.270 --> 00:21:04.130
  • FOR YOU HAVE ROBBED ME."
  • 00:21:04.280 --> 00:21:07.280
  • THE TITHE IS A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:09.020 --> 00:21:12.020
  • IT'S NOT A DEBT WE OWE;
  • 00:21:12.020 --> 00:21:13.120
  • IT'S A SEED WE SOW.
  • 00:21:13.120 --> 00:21:15.260
  • WHEREVER THERE IS THE NUMBER
  • 00:21:15.260 --> 00:21:16.280
  • OF TEN INVOLVED,
  • 00:21:16.280 --> 00:21:18.170
  • THERE'S A REDEMPTIVE WORK.
  • 00:21:18.170 --> 00:21:20.210
  • THE PLAGUES WERE USED TO SET
  • 00:21:20.210 --> 00:21:22.040
  • ISRAEL FREE FROM PHARAOH,
  • 00:21:22.040 --> 00:21:23.270
  • TEN PLAGUES.
  • 00:21:23.270 --> 00:21:25.040
  • TEN COMMANDMENTS WERE GIVEN
  • 00:21:25.040 --> 00:21:26.180
  • TO SET THE WORLD FREE
  • 00:21:26.180 --> 00:21:28.140
  • FROM THE TYRANNY OF EVIL.
  • 00:21:28.140 --> 00:21:30.150
  • TEN DONKEYS WERE SENT BY JOSEPH
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:32.160
  • TO BRING JACOB AND ALL OF
  • 00:21:32.160 --> 00:21:34.180
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:36.200
  • TO THE LANDS OF EGYPT.
  • 00:21:36.200 --> 00:21:38.140
  • THE TENTH PART OF YOUR INCREASE
  • 00:21:38.140 --> 00:21:40.150
  • IS THE REDEMPTION
  • 00:21:40.150 --> 00:21:41.100
  • OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:21:41.100 --> 00:21:42.120
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GIVE 10%
  • 00:21:42.190 --> 00:21:45.190
  • OF YOUR INCOME
  • 00:21:45.190 --> 00:21:46.240
  • AND NOT GIVE THE FIRST FRUITS?
  • 00:21:46.240 --> 00:21:48.240
  • THAT'S A QUESTION.
  • 00:21:48.240 --> 00:21:49.210
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:21:49.210 --> 00:21:51.160
  • LET'S PRETEND FOR JUST A MOMENT
  • 00:21:51.160 --> 00:21:53.060
  • THAT EACH ONE OF THESE ONE
  • 00:21:53.060 --> 00:21:55.150
  • DOLLAR BILLS IS A HUNDRED
  • 00:21:55.150 --> 00:21:57.210
  • DOLLAR BILL.
  • 00:21:57.210 --> 00:21:58.130
  • THIS IS A LOW BUCKET
  • 00:21:58.130 --> 00:21:59.290
  • ILLUSTRATION HERE.
  • 00:21:59.290 --> 00:22:01.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:01.190 --> 00:22:02.020
  • THE QUESTION IS;
  • 00:22:02.020 --> 00:22:03.040
  • CAN YOU GIVE GOD A TENTH
  • 00:22:03.040 --> 00:22:04.090
  • AND NOT PAY TITHE?
  • 00:22:04.090 --> 00:22:05.120
  • AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:07.270
  • IF YOU SIT DOWN TO PAY
  • 00:22:07.270 --> 00:22:09.000
  • YOUR BILLS,
  • 00:22:09.000 --> 00:22:09.220
  • AND YOU DO YOUR HOUSE NOTE,
  • 00:22:09.220 --> 00:22:11.290
  • YOUR CAR NOTE,
  • 00:22:11.290 --> 00:22:12.260
  • YOUR TWO CAR NOTES,

  • TO HIM.
  • 00:22:27.080 --> 00:22:27.240
  • AND IF HE WANTED,
  • 00:22:27.240 --> 00:22:28.140
  • HE'D GET IT ALL.
  • 00:22:28.140 --> 00:22:30.210
  • WHAT HE WANTS IS THIS ONE.
  • 00:22:30.210 --> 00:22:33.120
  • THIS IS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:22:33.120 --> 00:22:35.260
  • WHEN HE GETS THIS ONE,
  • 00:22:35.260 --> 00:22:37.070
  • ALL OF THESE ARE CONSECRATED.
  • 00:22:37.070 --> 00:22:40.030
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:45.060 --> 00:22:48.060
  • IF YOU WANT GOD'S FAVOR,

  • HIS ABUNDANCE,
  • 00:22:50.000 --> 00:22:51.240
  • UNLIMITED VICTORY,

  • UNLIMITED FAVOR,
  • 00:23:01.030 --> 00:23:03.230
  • THEN GIVE THE LORD THE FIRST
  • 00:23:03.230 --> 00:23:05.010
  • FRUITS AND YOU WILL PROSPER.
  • 00:23:05.010 --> 00:23:07.190
  • THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
  • 00:23:07.230 --> 00:23:10.230
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO EXPLODE

  • WITH ABUNDANCE.
  • 00:23:15.030 --> 00:23:16.280
  • BUT HE WILL NOT REWARD
  • 00:23:16.280 --> 00:23:19.130
  • DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:23:19.130 --> 00:23:21.200
  • LOOK AT THE ILLUSTRATIONS
  • 00:23:21.200 --> 00:23:22.290
  • OF ADAM AND EVE,
  • 00:23:22.290 --> 00:23:24.280
  • OF ACHAN'S FAMILY.
  • 00:23:24.280 --> 00:23:26.230
  • HE JUST DOES NOT REWARD
  • 00:23:26.230 --> 00:23:28.250
  • DISOBEDIENCE.

  • IN CLOSING,
  • 00:23:32.070 --> 00:23:32.290
  • TO BRING A BOY'S SACK LUNCH,
  • 00:23:32.290 --> 00:23:34.270
