Tithe and Offerings
YeHoVaH(God) loves a cheerful giver(2 Cor. 9:7.) YeHoVaH tells us to test Him with our tithes(Malachi 3:8-10), the Lord says to test Him and through our obedience, He will open the windows of heaven in our lives. He also tells us that in what measure we give, we shall receive in the same measure(Luke 6:38). Basically, the Lord is begging us to challenge Him in our obedience in tithe and offering. Why don’t you give it a chance in love and joy?
2 Corinthians 9:7 – 7 Let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not of grief or of necessity, for Elohim loves a joyous giver.
Matthew 10:8 – 8 “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. You have received without paying, give without being paid.
Malachi 3:8-10 – 8 “Would a man rob Elohim? Yet you are robbing Me! But you said, ‘In what have we robbed You?’ In the tithe and the offering! 9 “You have cursed Me with a curse, for you are robbing Me, this nation, all of it! 10 “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, and let there be food in My house. And please prove Me in this,” said יהוה of hosts, “whether I do not open for you the windows of the heavens, and shall pour out for you boundless blessing!
Some people don’t understand where the ten percent came from. It is quite simple, it came from Genesis.
Genesis 28:20-22 – 20 And Ya‛aqoḇ made a vow, saying, “Seeing Elohim is with me, and has kept me in this way that I am going, and has given me bread to eat and a garment to put on – 21 when I have returned to my father’s house in peace, and יהוה has been my Elohim, 22 then this stone which I have set as a standing column shall be Elohim’s house, and of all that You give me, I shall certainly give a tenth to You.”
Tithing is an important part of the believers walk. It allows you a moment in your life to put YeHoVaH(God) above money. It allows you the generosity to give out of love and obedience for the Father. It also gives back to the place in which you are fed the Word. God Bless and thank you for your tithes and offerings.
