Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house and try Me now in this, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field says the Lord of hosts – Malachi 3 : 10 – 11; Nehemiah 10 : 37.
This is what many of us don’t want to hear in the body of Christ. This very words has driven many people from church because some of us only want to recieve without first giving and it does’nt work like that. Brethren, the truth must be said and we have to better start accepting it or we reject the blessing of God. If we are Christ’s ambassador, we have to obey His commands whether we like it or not. Christ has shown us that He is a good friend and we will not always hear what we like from a good friend. The advise of a good friend is always very hard for us to take. We think he is not giving us a good advise but sooner or later we will always see and have the impact of that good advise we’ve tried to reject and we will come back to say thank you for the advise.
The scripture says that ”For the word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edge sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” – Hebrews 4 : 12 No matter how inconvenient that advice might be to your friend, if you really love him, you will always give him that good advise that is expected from you. Tithe is a seed and what is a seed? According to the dictionary meaning of a seed, it says that ”it is the fertilized ripened ovule of a flowering plant containing an embryo and capable normally of germination to produce a new plant” From this explanation, it has the capability of producing a plant and as we know, a plant will in turn produce many seed which will in turn bring many more plants that is how tithe works. Without sowing, some people want to only be at the recieving end which is not possible. To harvest, we have to first and foremost plant.
He promised that He will open the windows of heaven and pour out His blessing on us and moreso, He will rebuke the devourer for our sake, so that he will not destroy the fruit of our ground. Whom are we if not for His love and the sacrifice Jesus Christ has sacrificed for us that gave us the qualification for this great blessing? Why then can’t we approach the tone Grace by obeying His command which He has given us the capacity and strength which we need to obey this command. I believe it is high time we obey God’s instructions with ultmost seriousness if we want to have an impact of God’s presence in our lifes. There is nothing He cannot giveand there is nothing He cannot do if we are ready to honor Him. He said forever, His word is settled in heaven. Let’s obey Him and we will see open heaven as He has promised not only in finance but rather in all area of our lifes.
