This is “The Rewards of the Generous.” There are immediate rewards for generous people. Don’t rob God of the opportunity to bless you by neglecting generosity—make it a priority. The divine purpose of giving is not to receive it is to honor God. In this message, learn the five “I wills” from God, where He says if you will, I will … and see if God does not open a floodgate of blessing over YOUR life.

the following program is sponsored by

friends and partners of Kingdom

connection he said I’ll rebuke the

Devourer for your sake I’ll prevent the

pests from devouring your crops

anybody got any pest your pests may be

your own weaknesses I’ll hide your

weaknesses until you figure it out I’ll

let you get a job that you aren’t

qualified for and they don’t know it and

I’ll give you time to learn because I

believe in you more than you believe in

you and I’ll bless you and I’ll rebuke

the Devourer no stop how blessed are we

how good has God been to us how

excellent has he been to us I want to

talk to you about the rewards of

degeneres these are five I wheels that

I’m going to give you the Lord willing

I’m going to give you five things that

God said he would do to the person who

honors God in their resources with

tithes and offering the fact that you

have a harvest is proof that harvest

exists the fact that you have a house

that you slept in last night or an

apartment that was your harvest and it’s

proof that more harvests exist the fact

that you drove here to church today

wherever you are is proof that there is

a harvest the fact that you have a job

anything that blesses you is a harvest

your husband is a harvest

we try it again your husband is a

harvest your wife is a harvest


sounds like the women need a little bit

more convincing than the men

if you found someone who thinks putting

up with your weakness is worth it

that’s a harvest that’s what marriage is

your health is a harvest there are

people in the hospital today but here we

are and I’m saying to you our health is

a harvest and it’s proof that God is

good can you say man you’ve got a job

your job is a harvest your job says

someone has perceived your distinctive

gift and decided to write you a check

every week for it and don’t you take

that harvest for granted don’t you take

that check for granted that job for


it is God’s harvest in your life love is

a harvest I wrote this one down good

looks are a harvest you could very

easily be ugly come on say man you have

no idea how close to ugly you are

all God would have to do is raise the

tip of your nose back a half an inch and

you would look like porky the peach but

God was good to you turn to your

neighbor and say you barely made it but

but I’m just telling you I’m just

telling you good looks are a harvest

isn’t it wonderful that somebody finds

you attractive

because there’s people who don’t think

you are I’m just telling you and they

were shocked when you got married they

never dreamed you would ever find

anybody I’m talking about today the

results of being generous all around you

God wants to bring rewards immediate

rewards to people who are generous and I

want to talk to you about that because I

think that once you understand what I’m


it’s gonna open your eyes you see the

tithe is talked about in Leviticus 27 in

verse 30 it says the tithe of the land

which the word tithe means 10 whether

the seed of the land of the fruit of the

tree is the Lord’s notice these words it

is holy to the Lord if a man wants to

redeem all of his ties he shall add one

fifth to it what God is saying here is

this is mine it’s when he says it’s holy

he doesn’t mean just like holiness he

means is sanctified it’s set apart the

tide or the tent is set apart it’s mine

and he said if anybody takes that tie

this is Old Covenant so just let me

teach it but it’s got a great point to

it if you take the tithe and you don’t

give it to me and you use it he said if

you want to get right then you have to

bring one-fifth interest God saying is

so much mine the the point is this is so

much mine that I want you to understand

that if you don’t give it to me I have a

right to charge you interest and he says

the interest would be 1/5 or about 20%

that’s Old Covenant God doesn’t make us

live under that but he’s emphasizing the

point he’s emphasizing the point that

it’s mine so much so that I have a right

to charge you interest if you don’t

honor me with it he goes on to say in

verse 32 and concerning the time of the


the flop or whatever passes under the

rod the tenth one shall be holy to the

Lord God was so specific about this that

he says I want you to every ten animals

go count them off and take one out of

the ten and say it’s holy unto the Lord

take let the ten ox and go food get to

take one out ten goats go through take

one out ten sheep go through take one

out of the ten as they pass under grab

it and the rest you keep but that is

holy unto the Lord ten chickens one

here’s the grain take it out this is how

serious God was about it the reason that

he says I want this percentage this 10%

is because 10 is symbolic listen very

carefully of the whole our numerical

system teaches in terms of 10 if you can

count to 10 you can count to a hundred

if you can count to ten you can count to

a million because all you do after ten

is repeat again so the way you get to a

hundred is you count to ten

and then you start over again with one

at twenty one twenty two and then you

get to thirty thirty one you’re counting

to ten again and so everything comes out

of the ten the genius of God when he

said I won’t the ten is he saying the

90% is in the 10% and if you honor me

with the 10% I’ll see it as everything

that you have you’re giving it to me

you’re saying that it belongs to you

Lord and I’m honoring you with the tithe

I’m saying today that we need to

understand that it is not the amount it

is the fact that our heart wants to

honor God

I heard the true story about a man who

went to New York and he said he bought

his wife and extremely expensive dress

as a gift because he loved her and he

wanted to bring

this gift home to her when he got home

from this trip so he picked it out and

he bought it and he paid a lot of money

for it and just as they were wrapping it

up as a gift he said wait just one

minute he grabbed a piece of paper and

he wrote these words on it you are

always on my mind it’s pretty good you

are always on my mind and put it inside

wrapped it up she got it she opened it

up and she looked at the dress and as

most women do if the man picks the dress

she was not very impressed she took that

expensive dress out he said hung it in

the closet and to this day she has never

worn it but she took that card that said

you were always on my mind

stuck it in the mirror and it’s been

there for several years it was not the

act of the gift and how expensive it was

it was the fact that he cared enough to

say to her you are always on my mind

that’s what we’re doing with the time

God does not need your gift he can hang

it in his closet and never touch it it’s

the fact that you honored him enough to

say you are always on my mind when you

bring the time and you bring the

offering what blesses God is the spirit

of obedience the woman with the

alabaster box broke it open one year’s

wages and poured it on the feet of Jesus

and Jesus was moved by her gift he was

moved by it obedience obedience is

powerful that’s why Malachi chapter 3

and verse 10 said bring all of the time

all of it everybody say all bring all

the tithes into the storehouse that you

may that I may have meat in the house

look at these words and prove me now

with this the word prove me means

provoke me ha I can provoke God

challenge me as another word test me in

this prove me provoke me tes

me bring me a tithe and see if I will

not pour you out open up the windows of

heaven and pour you out a blessing there

shall not be room enough to receive it

he said if you will if you will honor me

and bring me the tithe and the offering

that there is in the house of God that

you attend a floodgate some translations

say window of heaven but the original if

you read it it actually means floodgate

it means a floodgate is like when

there’s so much coming and the gate is

down and it just keeps piling up and it

gets deeper and deeper and deeper and

when you bring me the tithe in the

offering I command the flood gate in my

house to flow from my house to your


so you’re the priest of your home if

you’re the parent the dad or the mom

you’re the priest of your home you are

the government of that home and you

connect to the house of God you become a

partner with God when you bring the

tithe in the offering and and it goes

from priest to priest on the spiritual

pasture over this particular flock that

God has trusted me with and what we do

with the resources God will judge me for

and those of us who are in control of

the resources but when you connect your

house to this house we in return are

connected to the high priest Jesus and

he says the windows of heaven are the

flood gate of heaven is full of

blessings and now because that’s a

giving Church I’m gonna lift up the

flood gate it’s going to hit that house

and it has I said it hands

and now the floodgate is down for your


but you bring the tithes and offering to

this house and God says whatever is in

that house just like what was on Moses

came on the seventy elders just like

what is on this house the anointing on

this house it now comes into your house

this is the blessing of the generous

person and I love what he said we’re

floating in blessings and he said and

all of these blessings will overtake you

one translation said they will tackle

you that there will when the flood gate

comes open from heaven to the house of

God from the house of God to your house

the flood gate starts pouring and

suddenly it’s hitting your life and it’s

like a tidal wave and it’s like being

tackled by blessing and it overtakes you

and I’ve found in the Word of God that

if we will do it certain things bring

the tithe and the offering God gives

five our wheels that I’m gonna close

with God says if I’m your father

show me honor proverbs three said honor

the Lord with your possessions and with

the first fruits of your increase so

that your barns will be filled with what

and your presses will burst out with new

wine the wonder original translation

says overflow overflow plenty listen to

God’s language plenty overflow what are

the benefits I want to give you the five

hour wheels of God God’s five promises

to every tire and giver especially to a

church like this do you understand there

is a worldwide revival going on that

this church is a major part of

in your neighborhood and you act like

it’s just a church there are people who

are flying in on the weekends just to

sit in these services there are people

who are driving three and four hours a


you think I’m do you think I’m joking

don’t you you think I’m exaggerating

don’t you it’s in your neighborhood and

you treat God casually as though it’s no

big deal it’s just the church you know

why God put this church here for your

house you know why God putting this

house here for your house there’s family

blessing I’ve got a blessed family I’ve

got a blessed marriage I’ve got a bliss

and all of that can come on your house

it’s come from him it’s generational and

it can come to your house but God wants

to know you’ve always got him on your

mind now let me give you quickly and

closing the five hour wheels of God his

promise to the Tyler and the giver

number one I will open the floodgate or

the windows of heaven it’s an open

heaven God’s sudden strike capability he

can come out of nowhere because there’s

an open heaven just when the devil

thinks he’s got you trapped there’s an

open heaven and God sees all know

secondly I will pour you out notice the

word in a blessing that you will not

have room enough to receive I love the

fact that it’s a blessing one everybody

say one God’s got so much in one that he

said you can’t handle all that I want to

do did you catch it I’ll pour you out a

blessing and you won’t have off that one

blessing enough room to contain it

anybody got shirts and you’re in your

calls that you had worn in years

anybody got numerous pairs of shoes

ladies do not lie numerous paths pair

not just one one pair would be enough

but you’ve got more than

anybody got shelters out there with

lawnmowers and all kinds of stuff you

can’t even get it in your garage you

gotta have you got your garage fooled

and you got another thing full and you

act like a guy named Emily it’s me you

got you don’t even have room enough to

receive you coming cars you got now how

do you drive them both at the same time

how blessed are we how good has God been

to us how excellent has he been to us

come on church

I’m almost done one blessing one person

one Talent

Connor was telling me about one girl

that my daughter Connor she does some

modeling and stuff and she said there’s

a girl that she’s just got pretty hands

and she makes hundred so that I don’t

know what the rest of her looks like but

her hands her hands are beautiful and

she makes hundred one a blessing nothing

but pretty hands and she just does this

and they pay her hundreds of thousand

for hands she put a ring on it she just

the Canaanite woman understood it when

she said y’all can have the loaf just

table it’s loaded I don’t need the whole

loaf if I’ve got a blessing from the

table you can’t stop me you can’t run me

you thankful that he really will supply

all of your needs I’m believing that God

is going to open the windows of heaven

and pour you out blessings this year

receive you know what it all begins with

our acts of obedience if you don’t know

Jesus Christ is your Lord if you never

ask him to be your Savior I’m telling

you that there is a better life a more

abundant life and it’s waiting for you

all you have to do is surrender all you

have to do is say Lord I want you to

take control of my life there’s a

scripture in the book of Judges that

says the people willingly offered

themselves I’m asking you today to do

that to willingly surrender and offer

yourself to Jesus Christ pray this

prayer with me Lord Jesus say those

words I willingly surrender and offer

myself to you I give you my life I give

you my future I give you my

into your life get in a good church and

let God do something great this year in

our closing moments I want to encourage

you to pray about what God would have

you do to help us in the exchange

offering you see the beautiful thing

about this ministry is we’re at a unique

point where there are so many

opportunities coming at us to reach the

world with the gospel and do so many

exciting things and the way that we

decide yes or no whether or not we walk

through those opportunities is we depend

on people to hear God’s voice and

provide the supplies and resources that

we need to do what God has called us to

do the Apostle Paul said in the book of

Romans how will they hear unless someone

preaches but then he asked another great

question he said and how can they preach

listen to this unless their sinned I

thank God for the preachers I’m one of

them but we can’t do anything if we

don’t have sender’s I really thank God

more for the sender’s than I do the

preachers and many of you have been

senders and we’re so thankful but many

of you this year I believe are going to

hear the voice of God saying be a sender

of the gospel preach the gospel on TV

and the internet all over the world

through that ministry it’s not going to

happen unless the sender’s hear the call

of God and say I will give above and


this is what I live for this is who I am

going to give sacrificially and I tell

you one day when we get to heaven we’ll
