Why We Give Tithe & Offering
YaHUaH(God) loves an obedient child. YaHUaH tells us to test Him with our tithes(Malachi 3:8-10), He 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, Father is begging us to challenge Him in our obedience in tithe and offering. It doesn't matter where you choose to give your offering, the objective is that you do it faithfully and with a sincere heart.
Some people don’t understand where the ten percent came from. It is quite simple, it came from Genesis.
Bereshis(Genesis) 28:20-22 –
And Ya’akov vowed a neder (vow), saying, If Elohim will be with me, and will be shomer over me in this derech (way, journey) that I go, and will give me lechem to eat, and beged (clothes) to put on, So that I return to bais avi in shalom; then shall Hashem be for me Elohim (my G-d). And this even (stone), which I have set for a matzevah (pillar), shall be Beis Elohim: and of all that Thou shalt give me I will surely give the aser (tenth) unto Thee.
Tithing is an important part of the believers walk. It allows you a moment in your life to put YaHUaH(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. May the EL of Israel bless you. Thank you for your continued support.
