Tithing

The First Ten Percent

Do you believe in tithing and giving offerings? In order for someone to be willing to invest their money they need to have trust in that investment. The difference between a worldly investment and giving to God is the worldly investment has some risk.

With God there is no risk. When you believe God you have finally found that no risk investment that is not available in the natural world.

But I Give Why do I
Still Struggle
to get by?

Givers always get their needs met somehow or another. They receive breakthroughs and even some miracles from time to time. Many go on to receive great riches and wealth beyond their wildest dreams.

Testimonies are abundant and many famous wealthy people have always practiced tithing. Still there are those who haven't exactly found that place of supernatural abundance. They get by but live pay check to pay check. Why?

Look at the many reasons people give.
Among Christians some give because they are afraid what others in the church would think of them if they didn't give. Maybe they feel obligated or think of it as some kind of "Dues" owed in order to belong. Others give so that it can be seen as their "Good works". Those that are tithing for admiration from men have their reward of men.

Then there are those well meaning Christians who want to give. Their heart breaks as they feel the crushing weight of bills and the pressers of this life pressing in on them and they cave under that presser. They are not at the place of perfect trust and the circumstances around them dictate to them that they just can't afford it now. Their heart wants to be tithing but they give according to what they believe they can afford.

Others have been taught fear and dread through doctrine using partial Scripture as a tool of fear. Have you ever heard similar saying as,... "pay the tenth or God will get His tithe out of your hospital bills!".
That's not God.

The only "fear" you should have toward God is the kind of fear that means respect, honor, reverence... That kind of fear we should all have.


When you give for the wrong reasons there is little blessing.It's more important Why you give than how much you give
referring to tithing or giving offerings.
It's all about your heart condition.



Is God Mad At Me
If I'm Not Tithing?

God is NOT Angry anymore with His children. All of His anger was poured out on Jesus on the cross. When we fail in what ever area we fail in, our sin is covered by the precious Blood of Jesus. A just God must allow the curse to follow sin but that's why Jesus came and became a curse for us.
Gal 3:13. And the wages of sin is death and Jesus took our death on His cross.

After Messiah suffered and died in Isiah 53: Listen to the heart of God as He speaks to you from the next chapter54:9-10

9 "For this is like the waters of Noah to Me; For as I have sworn That the waters of Noah would no longer cover the earth, So have I sworn That I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you. 10 For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed, But My kindness shall not depart from you, Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed," Says the Lord, who has mercy on you. NKJV

The Lord wants to..."open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough (to receive it)." The Lord tells us this in Mal 3:10 The vehicle of Faith God uses to do this in the earth is Tithing.
God is not trying to get something from you,
He is trying to gets something TO You.

Old Covenant
vs
New Covenant

No need to debate if tithing is for Old Testament or New Testament believers - it really doesn't matter. It has to do with a heart condition. For many this principle is misunderstood but it is vital for your abundance and prosperity that you understand it.

Under the Old Covenant, under Law, Malacki 3:8-12 teaches that you can trust God. If you gave to God you would get blessings from God. If you did not tithe, you robbed God of being able to open up the windows of heaven and pouring you out a blessing. God used tithing as legal right to bless His People.

God is Holy and Just as His Law is Holy and Just. He holds Himself to His Own Standards of perfection. But people many times failed to keep Gods laws including tithing.

The Bible tells us that if we break one law we are guilty of all. We can't keep law perfectly but the standards of God can not be compromised. So we find our self between a hard place and a rock. The Law when broken including tithing can bring a curse upon us If we don't know the truth.

The New Covenant in the Blood of Jesus teaches us that even though we fail the Blood covers us. We stand righteous before God because we believe and accept that Jesus died for our sins. Jesus did for us what we could not do for our self - be perfect.

Does this mean that we now can sin and not trust God with our finances? No, God forbid! Not by any means.

When Did Tithing Start?

It began with Abram. Father Abraham (Abram) gives us insight. He gave tithes of all his substance four hundred years before Moses received the Law. Abraham is known for his Faith in God. The Grace of God was on Abraham's life.

Out of respect, honor and Love for his God Abram gave tithes to Melchizedek who was the priest of God Most High, Jesus.
Gen 14:18-19 Heb 6:20

God gave promises to Abram. God said He was his shield and exceedingly great reward. After God told Abram this,.. then...(and this is key) then Abram believed in the Lord, and God accounted it to him for righteousness. God so greatly blessed him that even today we speak of the "Blessings of Abraham".

This is a Key to unlocking the blessings. Do we Believe God? Remember the promises about giving? Is what God says true to you? Check your emotions when you think about tithing. Do you feel anxious or unsure or any negative sinking feelings? Or do you have peace and a feeling of joy or excitement when you think of tithing? Your emotions tell you what you really believe.

We are not under the law nor the curse of the law because of Jesus. Thank You Lord. But tithing is for our profit and was offered unto God way before Moses. By Faith Abraham received the promises of God.




All These Things Will be Added onto You

God will meet your needs. Financial riches are a big part of it but trust in only Him.

God wants to prosper you in more ways than just one. There is much more to prosperity than just financial gain. Think about health or your loved ones. How much is your health worth or even more, your loved ones?

You can shut the door to the devourer who comes to kill steal and destroy and keep him away from you by following Gods instructions. Jesus came that we may have life, and that we may have it more abundantly. John 10:10

Hear Bible Verses about prosperity laws.

God knows you. He knows how best to prosper you. The Bible says in Prov 31:10-11 that a virtuous wife is worth far above rubies. The heart of her husband safely trusts her; This goes for faithful husbands also. Your marriage is worth more than money. Your relationship between family or the safety of your children and.... there is so much more you can prosper in.

Prosperity can come to you in many ways. Even those who live in third world countries can prosper when their cattle give birth to two calves instead of one. Or when their crops do not fail in a drought. Don't limit God or try to put Him in a box.
(He's to big - He won't fit.)

God knows you have need of food, clothing and shelter and He promises that all these things will be added unto you. How? By seeking first the Kingdom of God.

What's Your Focus on?

Thinking a lot about money puts focus on it unconsciously causing trust in money to sustain us. Thinking about God and the things of the Kingdom of God puts your focus on Jesus. And keeping your eyes on Jesus, focusing on Him opens a way up for Him to meet your needs and prosper you.

Jesus will break the generational curse of poverty over you by Belief in Him!

Gods will is to prosper you. It gives God pleasure when we prosper.
Ps 35:27"Let the Lord be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant."NKJV

Faith In Action

Another benefit of tithing and giving is that it exercises our faith. It begins to teach us how to let God have control in our lives. Tithing and giving is putting God first and begins to teach us how to lean on Him alone for your sustenance and for every thing else.

You can show your Faith by your works.
To give God His first ten percent of all your increase (Tithing) by the Spirit, is faith in action. Rely on God more than in your own ability to take care of yourself. When you really believe Him there is no longer need to hold on so tight to possessions.

But if you're just not at that place yet it's okay. Jesus does not leave us alone to muster up the faith to believe. Jesus is the author and finisher of our Faith. All He needs is your willingness, your permission to begin a good work in you. He will finish this work in you. In Him He will help you believe.

If you are willing to have faith to believe in God and walk in His ways all you need to do is just call on Him. Call on Him with an honest heart like the man in the Bible who cried out, "Lord I believe help my unbelief"! Jesus will do the rest as you rest in Him.

Works in the Flesh

There is such a thing as good works in the flesh as well as the good works in the Spirit.

You can force yourself to do good Works. But those works are of the sweat of your brow as you are in the flesh. They are like wood hay and stubble. They burn up quickly and do not last.

Giving in the flesh, out of what you comprehend as the little you have, can feel like a tree being pruned. You feel a loss. You wonder how can people be joyful doing this?

Good works in the flesh and good works in the Spirit can look the same From the outside. Two people can be tithing, one in the Flesh and one in the Spirit. Ask God about yourself; what is the power that accomplishes my work? Is it from my flesh(man power)? Or does it come as you surrender to the Spirit of God and in His power accomplish the work in you?

The motive is in the heart. It's a heart condition. Only God can tell the difference. This is not for us to judge each other about. It's none of our business. This is personal. Only God who can read the heart knows. This is between God and you.

When you do a good work in the Spirit it's not you doing it but the Spirit of God working in you doing it. You Can't do this on your own. Peter walked on water as long as he focused on Jesus and not on the circumstances that surrounded him. God Himself takes over for you and it suddenly becomes almost effortless. He will finish the work that He started in you.

If you want to ask Him to give you a new heart, He will.




It Becomes a Joy to Give

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 2 Cor 9:8-9 NKJV
When your needs are met you naturally begin to look for opportunities to bless other people joyfully. And you begin to look more and more like your Heavenly Father.

How do we become wealthy?
Hidden in the original language of the Bible is a treasure. The Hebrew word for Riches or wealth is hidden inside the Hebrew word for tithe. Think about that. How many ways can God try to tell us? Believe what He says, follow His instructions. And through putting God first, trusting Him with our finances we will find wealth of every kind in Him.

It's a kingdom principle...give and it shall be given you pressed down shaken together shall men give unto you. Give because you believe God, respect Him, honor Him not because we need to but because we get to. It is His good pleasure to give us the kingdom.

When we behold how GOOD God is and see Gods Grace so poured out on us we become so motivated that we look for anything to do to please Him. We can only thank Him by our love for Him. It becomes a joy to give just because it pleases Him.

The amazing thing is as we give with a new heart, we will discover it is indeed more blessed to give than to receive. It's actually more profitable for us to give because by honoring God and giving in Faith it causes a returning to us again multiplied! It's a kingdom law which is higher than natural law.

God gives you much more than you can ask or think. You can't out give God. God Himself is our reward and with Him is everything.

Believe

Trust Him. There is no risk, God can not lie.

As Jesus says,"Believe only". God will give you a new heart about tithing.

The Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. The righteous Fear God is honor and reverence toward God.

How is there a way to honor God?
Prov 3:9 Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase:KJV

It's all about Him and His Grace toward you and me.
Calling upon Him the author and finisher of your Faith.


Glory be to God when You can go even beyond the promises to Love itself. Love compels you when you can't help it. When the work seems effortless you know it's not natural. It's God working in you to do what is pleasing in His sight.

Heb 13:20-21....through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. NKJV


He has an awesome future for you. He waits for you to call His Name. When do you want to begin?

It's your call.



Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 2 KJV
