THE BLESSINGS IN TITHING
MAIN TEXT- Malachi 3:8
Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.
Tithing is directly associated with opening the windows of heaven. This opening is what releases the blessings of God, His abundant provision upon His people. No matter what fields of business we are in, we all depend on some things that are completely out of our control. The opening of the windows of heaven refers to those situations that we have no control over. God says He will arrange favorable circumstances for us in certain areas if we are faithful in bringing the tithe to his storehouse.
The purpose of tithe – Exodus 11:1-2, The borrowing of Jewels and raiment by the Israelites became the seed for God’s people to give gifts to:
- Worship God
- To support the priests
iii. To provide for maintenance of God’s house
- To prosper individually – Deut 12:22
Throughout scripture both blessings and curses are promised as a result of the choices we make, either of the two can impact a person’s life in a powerful way. When we fail to tithe, we invite a curse into our lives, that brings with it loss of many good things. However when brought to the house of the Lord, it becomes a blessing. – Joshua 6:16-19.
When we fail to tithe, the door to the devil is left open. The devourer is able to gain access to the resources and provisions of our lives and destroy them – John 10:10. When we tithe, our source of income is protected from destruction.
TITHE IS THE KEY THAT OPENS THE DOORS OF FINANCIAL BLESSINGS
