[00:04:35] Speaker C: Amen. [00:04:36] Speaker B: Hallelujah, God. There was something going on around the Internet here about a week ago, two weeks ago, and I know you saw it. Actually, I'm going to talk about money on tonight, but there was something that was going on. It was just a question. And I know it was all fun and for giggles and all of that type of stuff have you all seen on there where it was saying that? And the question went, the church. If the church cash apps you $10,000, would you return it? [00:05:03] Speaker C: Be honest. [00:05:03] Speaker B: That's what they said. If the church cash apps, you get a cash app from the church for $10,000, what did they say? They accidentally cash apps you $10,000, would you return it? Be honest. That's all what it was saying. And, man, it was a bunch of people shared it. And you, I remember seeing, I didn't comment on none of it. I was too busy looking at the answers. And just when I think that we are headed in the right direction, just when I think we're doing good, the answers was surprising. Was not surprising, but disappointing. I'll put it that way. I didn't think. I seen not one answer. I mean, some of them had hundreds, but the ones that I did see, the ones that I did see, I didn't see. Not one of them say, I'll return it. Okay, now, first of all, let's get to the basic. The church is going to accidentally. Churches have finance committees and all of that. Why would somebody on a finance cash app you $10,000? First of all, I know you, Elder, you're being too literal. It's just a question. I know, but how does that happen? Why they got your cash app and cash app and you $10,000. But you know what? Okay, I'll play your silly game. Okay? You get $10,000 from your church. My God. The answers that I saw was, God don't make no mistakes. Won't he do it? I'm going to pay my tithes and offering of it and all that. God don't want your funky little ties and offering off of stolen money that ain't yours. Oh, God. You got to be kidding me. Won't he do it? Really? God don't make no mistakes. I'm like, man, come on, now. And some of it, like, no. Some of them just being straight up on they wouldn't do. I mean, my goodness. You know what? And like I said, surprising. Not surprising. I meant to say not surprising, but very disappointing. Because people just going to be people. Everybody always tell me they want to go into heaven, but that money. My goodness. First Timothy six and ten. And you all know where I'm going. It's about the love of money. First Timothy six and ten, what does it say? We know what it say, but I'm going to read it. And it goes beyond what I'm about to say here. Now, this is new King James version. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. I think King James just says, of all evil, but this says all kinds of evil. Amen. Right there. Right there. Now you know it says it's the root of all evil. The love. Love it. Even the OJs had it right back in the day when they said the love of them. Even they sang the song for the love of money. Y'all know what that is? That my cousin Gwen. That's when she was a young lady back then. Well, I know she used to pump that up in her ride. My pastor and all them. I'm quite sure they used to pump that up back in the day. [00:07:46] Speaker C: Amen. [00:07:46] Speaker B: I know they did. With the OJs just bumping and nodding their head into the beat. For the love of money. [00:07:51] Speaker C: Amen. [00:07:53] Speaker B: Money, the love of money is the root of all evil, as it says in one Timothy six and ten. But then it keeps going, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. They say with their greediness, you even have. Even men and women of God said, pimp, through the faith that have put money before God. It's a money deposit. You know that ain't yours. I ain't saying it's going to feel good returning it, but my goodness, it's not yours, man. Oh, I got my first brother on tonight. Minister Coleman. Thank you, man of God, for tuning in. Join in with all the ladies, because the ladies is leading the way, man. God bless you, minister. Money, the love of money. And people, like they say, even the song says it right. People will do all kinds of things for money. Women will sell their bodies and whatnot, and all of that type of stuff. People will steal to get money. People run all kind of schemes to get more money and all of that. The Bible is full of stuff, talking about rich people. And if you rich, you better be doing the right thing if you got a lot of money. That's all I'm saying. If you to the point where you are considered rich or you can afford to help people, but you're not, we know the peril about the rich man and his barns. We know about the rich young ruler. I'm going to talk about all that here on tonight, even though they're parables. But you have people with that kind of way of thinking. But for that to come out, people just put that out there. And I don't want to hear people. I was just playing. No, you were serious. If you get $10,000 in your bank account and you know where it come from and you know they ain't wanting supposed to send that to you. More like you wouldn't return it. A lot of people wouldn't and whatnot. So then that's just some born, that's some born again saved christians knowing that they get full well money like that from a church, your own church. You mean to tell me you wouldn't give it back? So you just go keep it? Like, you know, people have found money, like in bank bags. I'll just use bank of America, for instance. With all of that money, everybody ain't doing everything online. Sometimes you have to physically take money to the bank and drop it and all of that type of stuff. Sometimes you have to do that. Bank of America bags and bank bags have been found on the ground with thousands of dollars in there. But the bag itself has the baked name on there. It has the name on there. A lot of it is checks and different things, but a lot of it is cash as well. The point is, you see that. Now what you going to do now? Are you going to return to the bank of America, as we say on the street? They used to say, charge it to the game. Whoever did this, they shouldn't have dropped it or whatnot. See, now this individual who didn't drop that money, now they worried. They panic to death now trying to worry about what happened to that. Let's just say if it was $10,000 worth of stuff in that bag, now they are worried about. Because now you got to tell your supervisor or whomever and whatnot that you came up $10,000 short, that you don't know it, and they go look at you like, okay, well, we just write it off. No problem, man. Please. You know how much trouble somebody get in for that? It was just an honest, it dropped. Whatever the case may be, who's going to pick it up and return that? No matter how bad you might need it, no matter how bad you in debt, you know that money don't belong to you. It's different if it's unidentifiable or you see something and whatever and you pick it up and keep it, but certain things has name on it. Armored trucks have been stolen. That happened here in Columbia, South Carolina, several years ago. People always saying, what would you do if you walking in the wind, just happened to see an armored truck there? My goodness, all of that type of stuff. People steal armored trucks and all of that money, and they part. So what now? When you come across it, know, you take that money as federal money and all of that, and people have gotten in trouble for doing that and whatnot, because some of them got greedy that stole it, and they're going to strip clubs and they say, making it range and throwing it all up in the money and all the money. You ain't never did that before. Now all of a sudden you got all kinds of money that you can just blow, buying everybody drinks and all that. So you're telling on yourself all of that type of stuff, money and whatnot. The love of it has gotten people killed in jail. We go, just go ahead and read some more. Like the rich young ruler, for instance, in Matthew 19, for instance, in Matthew 19, he did ask a question, and that's a question. I think, that every born again believer would love for somebody to ask them. That's the name of the parable, the rich young ruler. They don't call him that in here, but that's just always the title. He came up to Jesus and said, how may I have eternal life? My God? It ain't that a good question. If somebody was to ask you that, if somebody would come up to you and say, how may I be saved? Boy, that's a question we would all love to hear for somebody to ask us so we can tell them about the roman road, the road to salvation, and accepting Jesus as your personal savior. My God. Hallelujah. I know you did, cousin. I know you listened to them ojs back in the day, bumping it up. For the love of money. Hallelujah. I was too young back then. I ain't know nothing about that. The rich young ruler at Matthew 19, starting at verse 16, it says, now, behold, one came and said unto him, good teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life? And this is Jesus talking and said, why do you call me good? No one is good, but that is God. But you want to enter life, keep the commandments. And he told him about, thou shalt not murder. Thou shalt not commit adultery. You shall not bear false witness. You should not steal. And he said, I done did all of that. I did all of that since I was a youth. That's what he said. He said, all these things I've kept from my youth, what do I still lack? And Jesus said, if you want to be perfect, go sell all that you have. Give to the poor and you will have a treasure in heaven and come follow me. So this is what God told him to do. Sell every. Get rid of all of your stuff, sell it to the poor. Give it away. Come and follow me, he said. But when the young man heard it, he went away sorrowful because he had great possessions. Now the very thing. There you go. Stan the man, my retired man I know retired life must be lovely. God bless you, man of God. Thank you for tuning in, Stanley. Good to see you, brother. Verse 23. But Jesus said to his disciples, assuredly, I say unto you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven after he walked away sad. God told his disciples that. Or Jesus told him, that is hard for a rich. But yet everybody want to be rich. Everybody want to have hundreds of millions of dollars in the bank. But what you gonna do when you get it? Just keep it for yourself, see, because we will talk about that here in a minute. Keep it to yourself or just help out a few family members or whatnot. Because you say, I got mine, you got to get yours. All of these hurting people out here, all of these poor people out here, all people that are struggling, making a mortgage payment and making car payments and making all kinds of things and whatnot. But nevertheless, it said, it's hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. So I'm supposed everybody still want to be rich. And this comes out of Jesus'mouth. It's easy to say what you go do until you get it. Until you get it. It's easy to talk about what you go do with all that money to you. How many people are you going to help? Hallelujah, God. You go open up a homeless shelter that costs millions of dollars. If you go do that, what else are you going to do? You go try and do something to help out orphans and things of that nature. Are you going to donate the money to St. Jude hospital or millions of dollars to help those kids with cancer? And thank God for St. Jude's, a place like that, because the parents don't have to pay anything or nothing like that. They can treat the kids and whatnot. They run off of donations and all that. You get millions of dollars and you go help them out. Things of that nature like that right there. Children and kids with special needs and all of that type of stuff. It's plenty of money to spend on that deal. Plenty of money to spend on that deal. But it said it's hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Everybody wants to have rich, but they don't want to help nobody and whatnot. So you got to look at that saints. Even Jesus said that the Bible is full of things, talking about money. It even says, woe to the rich. Don't trust in man. Don't put your trust in riches, but put your trust in God. All of them scriptures out there, all you got to do is Google. What does the Bible say about getting rich? And all kinds of scriptures and stuff will come up. All kinds of it will come up. These are just a few, and I only got four of them that I put down, some of the key points that I was trying to prove. See, that's new testament. Now I'm about to go to proverbs and deuteronomy, because in proverbs, I think, 28 and 22, it talks about having those that chase out the riches quickly. You're going to end up going into poverty chasing out the riches. Proverbs 28 and 22. [00:16:23] Speaker C: Amen. [00:16:23] Speaker B: Proverbs 28 and 22 basically says, or the one that has an evil eye, it says, what does? It says that a man with an evil eye hastens after riches and does not consider that poverty will come upon him. Hallelujah, God, that poverty will come upon him chasing after riches and whatnot. Is there anything wrong with having a lot of money? Absolutely not and whatnot. But what are you doing with it that you got it? [00:16:46] Speaker C: Amen. [00:16:47] Speaker B: Yes, there's a lot of rich athletes that are helping out people and stars, but some of them don't do none. Some of them are mean and very nasty to people and whatnot. Shaquille O'Neill does a lot of things. He just went, and I've stories about Shaquille O'Neill being Walmart at the layaway thing, and just noticed a single lady coming there with her child and whatnot. And he would just sit there and pay stuff off for them that they didn't have on layaway. Not parents, but single ladies that were coming there with their child. He's been known to do that. He's been known to be in a shoe store, and somebody's looking for shoes and whatnot. And he told him, just go ahead and get what you want to get. These are documented things, and not just trying to do it so everybody can see him. That's just who he is. Years and years and years ago, even when he was with the Orlando magic, long before he became a Los Angeles Lakers, do you remember when toys r us was open? Shaquille O'Neill would literally shut down the store, get a big 18 wheeler, fill it all up with all the toys and whatnot, and give them away and all of that type of stuff, and give it to needed children, he would do that. He's not the only one. Others do some things, too, with things like that. Go to a toy store and rent it out and get things and whatnot, and give them to kids and children and whatnot. So you do have people that are doing things like that, and God bless them for it. They don't not necessarily have to be men and women of God to do something like that. They just have it in a heart to do something like that. Especially the ones that came up a real rough way and whatnot. Even those that have children, they teach their children about the meaning of giving to giving away to the poor. He said, because, see, as a child, you go get all year long anyway because your parents is rich. So what's Christmas to a child that's growing up rich because their parents are rich and whatnot. What's Christmas to them? Anything they want, they can get from January to December, before Christmas, even get here. Why they all in the bed can't wait for Christmas Day? You don't got everything because your parents original, some of them might make you earn it and wait, but most time with the new Playstation six comes out, if it comes out in March, more than likely originally, they'll go ahead and get that for their child, and I go make them wait to December and all of that because it costs 800, 900 or $1,000, please. That's nothing to somebody with hundreds of millions in the bank. That's what I'm getting at. They get everything and whatnot. But there are people out here that are struggling to make ends meet. Just like the rich man with the peril about the rich man. I thought I wrote it down. Remember the rich man? He had so much that he said, I'm going to tear down my old bonds and I'm going to build bigger barns to hold all of my stuff. And after that, I'm going to just say to myself, you can sit back and relax, eat, drink, and be merry. That's a parable. And then the spirit of the Lord came to him and said, you fool. Called him a fool. Your soul will be required of you this night. In other words, he was about to die. In other words, you got all of this stuff and don't want to help nobody. He said, I'm going to build bigger barns to hold all my stuff, not give this stuff away. Now, you know, right now, if you got a deep freezer and you can barely close it, don't you think you need to do something? Obviously you blessed to have all that stuff in there. But you need to be giving that stuff away to somebody. [00:19:45] Speaker C: Amen. [00:19:45] Speaker B: They go, my old roommate from Korea. [00:19:47] Speaker C: Amen. [00:19:47] Speaker B: AJ, my man. [00:19:49] Speaker C: Amen. [00:19:50] Speaker B: God bless you, boy. How you doing? Good to see you, man. [00:19:53] Speaker C: Amen. [00:19:55] Speaker B: You got all of that stuff, so you just go tat down your old barns and build bigger barns and what that. And keep all of that to yourself. That's why this time of year, they ask it on the gospel radio station. Now they need 200 people to give $25 apiece because they got to reach their goal and whatnot. Always this year, first of all, we should be giving year round, but especially this type of year, they're always asking for, if you got extra, get some extra canned goods, do something. Our church has a thing called missions, where we can pay money to, and we go out and we feed the homeless on certain days and do things of that nature and whatnot. We've known. I said, I've said it before. We go out on Christmas day and things of that nature. Sometimes that's really putting yourself or your selfish needs to decide when you're going out on a holiday where everybody's home and eating and doing things, and you're going out early that morning and doing some things for the homeless and whatnot. But for you to just sit there and say, I'm just going to keep all of this to myself, that's selfish. And there's people out here that need stuff. This stuff ain't going to hurt you. How many y'all got clothes in the closet? Still got the tag on it, and it's been in your closet before. The mean, come on, now. I mean, some of this. Just give that stuff away. Go to the goodwill or go somewhere and give it away. You ain't using it. That's one thing I can say. He's not on the line tonight by elder Price. Elder Robert Price. As much as we do things, God bless you. I see you. The child's family. God bless you. We went out to do a homeless ministry, some men of God. And we went, and it was a big, heavyset white man out there. Tall, big, and he had cleats. Anybody that played sports know anything about cleats? Cleats has a hard bottom. That's uncomfortable if you got to walk around, yes, you got shoes on your feet, but nevertheless, that's uncomfortable. I don't see nobody ain't gonna want to walk around in cleats all day with a hard bottom and them little plastic hard spikes sticking out and you got to walk. That's what he had on his feet, as a matter of fact, Stanley. Yeah. Robert Price. Robert Price went into his trunk. He said, what size you wear, man? Because you can tell he has some big feet. He had maybe a 1212 or 1311, something like that. He has some shoes in his trunk that he only wore maybe one time. Now, he paid money for that. Still pretty white whatever it was. He gave them shoes away to that man. Just gave it to him. Now, that really touched me. He didn't have to do that now. He just could have gave him some money. Just could have gave him some food or whatever, but he felt sorry for that man walking around in a pair of cleats on his feet and gave him them shoes that was in the trunk of his car. So that man can wear. I myself, many, many years ago, we was feeding. We was out there doing something with the homeless on a Saturday, and it was cold because it was like February or something like that. And I had my Scully. Had a nice gamecock Scully on. Everybody know I'm a south Carolina Gamecock fan. Had my Scully on and my jacket. I'm glad I had a hoodie on also. So it was a man idea. Barely had any hair on his head, and it was cold. And by that time, I don't think we had any knit caps to give out. I felt some type of way. I was like, man, I might have another skull cap in the car. And I kind of knew, well, you ain't got no skull cap in the car. But I went just to look, just to see. I'm looking all up under the seats and nothing. And it was pricked in my heart. Go and get that man, that Gamecock hat, that Scully hat. He needed more than you do. Gave that man, that man started crying. He started crying when I gave it to him. I hugged him. So I'm thinking it was cold. I said, last year, all I did was just put on my hoodie then and tied it like that. Gamecock hat is just a hat, guys. He needed it more than I did. Worldly possessions. Come on, now. You can't take them with you. I mean, come on now. That's why that's a good ministry, to get involved in the homeless shelter, battered women, all kind of things of that nature, man. It's many things that we can do with our money to help people out instead of just keeping it all to ourselves. Stop being so greedy. Oh, there you go, Deacon. The wrong team. Stop being so greedy. You know, I love my game cards. Give stuff away that you're not using even stuff that you are using, somebody needs it more than you do. They really do. Bishop gives an example all the time. Back in the day, back when he was passing out papers back in Fayetteville, North Carolina, he was throwing papers four, five in the morning, and he seen a man there shivering, whatnot, standing there. I mean, he tells a beautiful story. I heard him say it about a hundred times, but it's a beautiful story about his leather. Had a brand new leather jacket on. He said, my goodness, boy, that man. He said, that man, he said, he gave that man his leather jacket. It's a whole lot more to the story about taking a man to the bus station and some other different things. But he gave the man his leather jacket. This was back in either in the early 90s or late 80s or something like that. He said, that was a good leather jacket, and it cost a lot of money, and he gave it away. We as men and women of God, cannot be valuing possessions over people that need it and whatnot. The love of money, my God, is the root of all evil. Yes, it may cost some more money. Well, you can say, well, I got to keep this jacket because it cost me $150 or it cost me $200. He gave that jacket away, price. Gave those shoes away brand new. And that Scully that I had, it wasn't too raggedy. It was a nice Scully. Gave it away and whatnot. You have to do things like that. I mean, we're not trying to do things just to get brownie points in heaven. You got to do them things from the heart, because people need it from you. [00:25:20] Speaker C: Amen. [00:25:21] Speaker B: People need it from you. And you just heard what my pastor say. It's better to more to give than to receive. Amen, pastor. The word even says that. [00:25:28] Speaker C: Amen. Hey, baby. [00:25:30] Speaker B: How are you doing, honey? Brown sugar just walked in. [00:25:33] Speaker C: Amen. [00:25:34] Speaker B: It's better to give than to receive. You just got to do those things. You got to give up some of them possessions that you got. I know it hurt. You got to give up your time sometime to go out and do things like that on Thanksgiving or Christmas or whatever the case may be. Hallelujah, God. To help people in need. [00:25:50] Speaker C: Yes. [00:25:50] Speaker B: There are a lot of volunteers out there, and I thank God for them, and I thank God for those churches that are going out there and doing things. [00:25:56] Speaker C: Amen. [00:25:56] Speaker B: There's so many other things that I wanted to come at tonight. I think it was a couple of other examples that I wanted to use, and it'll probably come to me in a minute, but we have to. We got to put other people in front of ourselves. [00:26:08] Speaker C: Amen. [00:26:09] Speaker B: When it comes to that, it's just disappointing to hear people saying if you accidentally get $10,000 that the church sent to you, that you would actually keep that money instead of returning it and whatnot like that. But yet everybody wants to go to heaven. Everybody wants to holler, God is good. And all of this type of stuff. I'll accept any type of money as long as it's not stolen. As long as it's not stolen. I can deal with that. People always, often have. What if a drug dealer wants to donate $1,000 to your church? First and foremost, how you know it's a drug dealer? Who in the world is going to stand up in a church and announced that they sell dope? You don't know who's in there. You know this. Police officers are always on duty just because they're not in uniform. I ain't saying they got to be undercover. This is a church that they go to on Sunday. They in there with their families, and you think that some fool go walk up and tell me, well, I sell dope for a living. This is what I do, and I want to donate $1,000. Who go say that? Ain't nobody going to come in, tell me they're a dope dealer and whatnot, because they just want to see what you go say and all of that type of stuff? Yeah, if it ain't stolen money. The word of God says, the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the righteous. That's the word. And whatnot. As long as it ain't stolen. As long as you know it ain't stolen. That's it. It's different if you don't know. Can't take money that don't belong to you, whether it's you personally or the church or anybody else. Lottery money is not stolen money. Because you heard some pastors say, we come from the lottery, ain't taking it. And mo pastors, like, nine out of ten pastors, yes, they would take that money if somebody get it. Just because I don't play it or you don't play it all the time means shoes. You want to make a nice donation off of that and whatnot, you get 3 million. You want to get 300,000. Who will turn that down? That ain't stolen money. But you know what? It's legal. It's not illegal. That's what I'm saying. And people got to realize that your church ain't no holier than mine. Because you won't take lottery money and you won't make it into heaven no faster than what my church, where my people will or whatnot. Like that. So you ain't impressing nobody to me as far as that's concerned. God is not going to give you no special for me because I'm not taking no lottery money. Whatever. If you don't want to take it, you don't have to. That's your right and your prejudice. You don't have to do so. A lot of pads say, oh, yes, they will take that money. And when that is not stolen, all right, none anyway. [00:28:23] Speaker C: Amen. [00:28:24] Speaker B: Will do. God bless you. [00:28:26] Speaker C: Amen. [00:28:32] Speaker B: God called you for a reason. That's what I'm saying. You can't be like everybody else. God called you for a reason. That's why it says you are sanctified. We're different. We're set apart. We're not like everybody else. If a stolen armored truck just happens to cross your path and whatnot, and wreck and turn over and all the money, the door fly open and all the money fly out, I guess you go be part of the afraid of going in and start grabbing and getting all that money. Come on now. Really, come on now. You can't do that. We are men and women of God. Yes. People go run right over there and get all that money. We work, we do other things. God is the source. Everything else is a resource. Depend on your source. Depend on your source. [00:29:20] Speaker C: Yes. [00:29:20] Speaker B: Somebody's at the door. I think somebody was going to come see me about something. God is the source. Everything else is a resource. Hallelujah. God bless your holy name. We put our faith and our trust in God. That's who we put our faith and trust in. Not the lottery system, not the government, not the job, but Jesus Christ himself. That's who we put our trust in. That's who we trust. Nobody else. [00:29:47] Speaker C: God. [00:29:48] Speaker B: The word tells you, don't put your trust in man. Don't put your trust in riches. Put your trust in God Almighty. That's who you put your trust in. Keep believing. Keep asking. [00:29:58] Speaker C: Amen. [00:29:59] Speaker B: And just keep doing what you do. [00:30:00] Speaker C: Amen. [00:30:02] Speaker B: Put your trust in God above everything else. He's first and foremost. He's first and foremost above everything else. The very first commandment of the Ten Commandments says, thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt put no other gods before me. He's first, not money. They knew exactly what he was doing. Timothy, when he was led by the Holy Spirit to say, for the love of money is the root of all evil. It's a crying shame what people do for money, and that's always on people's mind, is money. I told you before, I don't know who to be mad at more, the drug dealer or the drug addict and whatnot. Because you tan up your community selling that garbage, because you're concerned about money. And you know this person has strung out, ain't got no business having any more drugs in a system. You know they don't work. And hey, I'm bringing you money and you don't care where they got it or how they got it. You just go take your little funky little ten or $20 and give them that rock or whatever it is that they desire. I'm mad at both of you because you didn't heard me say it before. You ain't going to smoke it with them. That's why I'm mad at the drug addict. Don't you sell a property if that's your product? You stand by your product, but drug doesn't tell you quick. I'm not smoking it, but I'm going to sell it to you. And you crazy enough to keep during smoking it. That ought to tell you something right there. If a man or woman that's selling it to you won't do it, then you need to run from it. Now, you don't got hooked on that stuff and you just got to have it now money. Because the drug deal is greedy and that's all they want. They will kill and steal for it. You've heard even sayings out there. Drug dealers are sell to their own mother if she's strung out. Because you know what he said? I've heard drug dealers say this. You know what they say? They say she go get it from somebody anyway. She might as well get it from me. That's the world we live in. That's the world we live in right now. It's sad. It really is. For all of these people to say. For all these people to say that I didn't know. God is not. Don't make no mistakes. Won't he do it? If the church accidentally cash app $10,000 in my account, you know good and darn well that money don't belong to you. You should cash app it right back to the Church if that were to happen. Even though we know that. I just get what the question is saying. Things do happen. But I mean, that was just a question of people. [00:32:18] Speaker C: Shit. [00:32:18] Speaker B: They just want to see what people go say won't he do it? I said, my goodness, really? I'll pay my tithes and offering of it. God don't make no mistakes. My God. Like I said, very disappointing but not surprising. Don't let money ruin you. Don't let money be the reason why you can't make it into heaven. Please don't do that. Don't be like the rich man and whatnot. You got all of that stuff and just go keep it to yourself. And when I give the stuff away, please. There's homeless places that need turkeys and ham and all of that type non perishables and all of that type of stuff. You got a cabinet full of stuff that's got dust on the can. You had them can of peas and corns for months. Get that stuff away. Give it to. Because somebody needs that stuff. Get that stuff away. Stop that. You look in your cupboard. Yes, you are highly blessed because you got all of that stuff that there's somebody who needs it more than you. I'm talking about those of you that just got full of beans and corn and all kinds of different things and peas and all of that type of stuff. Give this stuff away. Keep leaving it in there. How many of you to have stuff? And you had it so long you looked at bottom and it's been expired for six or seven months. Ouch. You didn't had the canned goods so long that it's expired. And you go in the grocery store today and get some canned goods. That stuff going to be good for two years, about at least another year and some change. The next thing you look at the bottom of it, you don't had it six months past the expiration date. You didn't had that can sitting in. They've almost two years or whatever it may be. May God help us all. Help us. Jesus, forgive me of my sins. God forgive us of our sins. God, don't be like the rich man. You got the stuff, give it away. God bless each and every last one of you. [00:34:05] Speaker C: Amen. [00:34:06] Speaker B: Hallelujah, God for tuning in on tonight. The Bible says so much about rich people and it's not good to be honest with you, but yet we all have a desire to be filthy rich. If you're going to be multi rich. If you hit the number and a lottery and whatnot, and them billions of dollars that be coming out and them hundreds of millions, and you just happen to hit and after all the taxes and stuff been taken out and you get that stuff deposited in your bank account, don't forget about the less fortunate. I'm not sitting here telling you to give all of it away, of course. But don't forget about the less fortunate. Help people out. People are having gofundmes for funerals and all kinds of things that people need. Help people. House just didn't burn down. They need a place to stay. You got hundreds of millions of dollars now. You can't buy nobody house furnished again, all of that. I mean, come on now. That's just the truth. I mean, you got millions of dollars now. I was going to hurt you to give a $200,000 house to somebody. Pay it all off. All they got to do is just pay the taxes on every year. Their house just burned down. They ain't got no clothes, no nothing. Smoke inhalation and tore up all the clothes. What you going to do? See, this is real and I'm raw. Raw. What you going to do? This is the type of teaching we need to hear. We can't keep forgetting about people that got it a little more than everybody else. But if you do happen to get money like that, help somebody out, please. That stuff be on the news all the time about somebody that lost their home. They stand in a hotel now. FEMA got them put up somewhere. I can't imagine nothing like that. That's hard. That's very hard. [00:35:32] Speaker C: Amen. [00:35:33] Speaker B: God bless each and every last one of you. Thank you, cousin. God bless you. God bless you. Thank you, pastor. God bless each and every last one of you. [00:35:40] Speaker C: Amen. [00:35:41] Speaker B: Hallelujah. [00:35:41] Speaker C: God.

[00:35:56] Speaker B: If you go store up anything, that's what you need to have love in your heart and spiritual wealth. I'm going to get ready to close out with a prayer and we're going to get ready to close it down for the night so you can go ahead and enjoy your Wednesday evening. [00:36:08] Speaker C: Amen. [00:36:09] Speaker B: I got some shows I need to watch and all of that type of stuff, so I want to enjoy the rest of my evening. God bless each and every last one of you.
