DRIVEN BY ETERNAL PURPOSE
Theme: THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY DIVINE WISDOM Part 14.
Beloved Saints, good morning. We continue looking at WISDOM AND MONEY.
God is already blessed. All things are His but He has a system that when you follow, His resources start flowing to you. When you don’t you accuse yourself of being bewitched or cursed. Satan does likewise but in a very bad way.
Wisdom is using your knowledge and understanding what God is saying and doing it to get results. Many still argue against tithes, yet they see their financial life failing. God said try me and test me in this and see if I will not open up the windows of heaven. Why not try Him? Let us look at a Biblical cross section today.
God commands Crops to be tithed.
Deuteronomy 14:22 (GNT)
“Set aside a tithe—a tenth of all that your fields produce each year.
In the New Testament we read that God commanded Israel to give tithes to make the priests or Levites live. But time came when Israel disobeyed the Lord in tithes.
Hebrews 7:5 (GNT)
And those descendants of Levi who are priests are commanded by the Law to collect one tenth from the people of Israel, that is, from their own people, even though they are also descendants of Abraham.
But when people stopped tithing in Israel disaster fell, the church was abandoned by the the Pastors and Bishops even servants in the churches…. Temples, all left the church empty to find life in the farms.
Nehemiah 13:10 (GNT)
I also learned that the Temple musicians and other Levites had left Jerusalem and gone back to their farms, because the people had not been giving them enough to live on.
Then Nehemia commanded people to start giving tithes again and the church of God was restored. Bishops and Pastors returned to serve God again in the Church or temple.
Nehemiah 13:12 (GNT)
Then all the people of Israel again started bringing to the Temple storerooms their tithes of grain, wine, and olive oil….
But tithe is not for show, not for pride, it is a spiritual law that came with God through Abraham, not Moses.
Luke 18:12 (GNT)
I fast two days a week, and I give you one tenth of all my income.’
Those who tithe with regret, pain and by force, God cannot accept. God loves a cheerful, understanding giver not a greedy giver. You cannot outgive God. Solomon tried but he ended up making himself richer than all till today by God.
2 Corinthians 9:7 (GNT)
You should each give, then, as you have decided, not with regret or out of a sense of duty; for God loves the one who gives gladly.
Tithes, giving to God is called honoring Heaven. And God therefore will also honor and exalt you.
Proverbs 3:9 (GNT)
Honor the Lord by making him an offering from the best of all that your land produces.
Abraham gave tithe to Melchizedeck the Priest of the Most high God even though he was not a Jewish Levite. God commanded Abraham to do so. God commands our spirits to obey and do His will all the times. Then this Priest blessed Abraham.
Hebrews 7:6 (GNT)
Melchizedek was not descended from Levi, but he collected one tenth from Abraham and blessed him, the man who received God’s promises.
The higher authority, the higher in anointing, the higher in calling, the high Priest of God, God given Melchizedek is the one who can bless the lesser or lower. Blessings and anointing flows from a higher zone to a lower level.
Hebrews 7:7 (GNT)
There is no doubt that the one who blesses is greater than the one who is blessed.
Psalms 133:2 (KJV)
It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: (from Moses) that went down to the skirts of his garments (down to all servants and Israel);
Those who rebelled against Moses did not survive as they cut off from the anointing cover.
Be it known to you that tithes are received by the Lord Jesus Christ who never tithes, represented here by Melchizedek. This is a very highly spiritual law. It is not Mosaic law. Moses who brought the law he found tithes already in existence. Those who oppose this will suffer financial catastrophes.
Hebrews 7:8 (GNT)
In the case of the priests the tenth is collected by men who die; but as for Melchizedek the tenth was collected by one who lives, as the scripture says.
But Jesus talks about your committed heart to Him, loving, humble and obedient heart. Tithe with the best disposition and not mechanical heart. Tithing and immorality doesn’t work at all. He never condemned tithe but instructed how best to live with God. Advice is not condemnation. At www.DivineRevelation.org/info, Google Angelica Zambrano on failure to Tithe after this life, what she saw. Hyper-grace can become hyper-grave without wisdom.
Pray: My Blessed Father, give me wisdom to understand spiritual laws that may not be necessarily found in my congregation. Let me be answerable to you as you live eternally. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
May God bless your day as you focus on Divine Economic Wisdom, and seek and save the lost souls in love.
Always Love and Prayers.
