THEME: THE POWER OF TITHING
TEXT: MALACHI 3:9-12
MEMORY VERSE: MALACHI 3:11A “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground…..”
The teaching about tithe on church pulpit seems to have been misconstrued. The most recent awful teaching is this “Christ has paid it all there is no need for you to tithe” However, testimonies about payment of tithes galore for those who had been faithful to it – I am one of the victims who have seen the blessing of paying tithes faithfully.
Tithe is tenth of your income or produce, be it livestock or anything (Lv.27:30-32). Malachi Chapter 3 opens our eyes to all blessings and attached to behind tithing and non-tithing. The beauty of the blessing cannot be seen and understood until when you are faithful to God in it. I advise you to try it today and you will understand the power in tithing.
I was once a staff in a College of Education. Initially, I was discouraged to pay my tithes when I discovered the amount to be tithed out of my salary. I later summoned up the courage of payment and I received the attendant blessings. Sickness and all odds left me; I received mercy from my boss, promotion at an appropriate time came my way and all good things needed to make my life comfortable started manifesting in me and I know that God was at work.
As noted in the text, devourers will be banned from all your endeavours when you faithfully pay your tithes. Paying faithfully means paying exactly 10 per cent of your income to God. Non-payment of Tithes brings curses on non-payers. They work and nothing to show for it because devourer will enter their harvests.
Beloved stop deceiving your self FAITHFULLY PAY YOUR TITHES AND RECEIVE GOD’ BLESSING TODAY.
HYMN: EMHB 679 – PLEASANT ARE THY COURTS ABOVE
PRAYER: Lord God, give me the grace to faithfully pay to my tithe in Thy tabernacle and let the power of tithe manifest in all I do in Jesus mighty name.
