TITHING & GIVING

Tithing is a way of honoring GOD with our substance and as a means of serving Him in the preaching of the Gospel, the care of the Church and helping the needy. The tithe is given out of pure faith and obedience to GOD. To “tithe” (meaning in both Hebrew and Greek “to give or take the tenth of”) means to give a tenth of “all the increase” (Deuteronomy 14:22) derived from one’s produce, property, or income, for the support of “kingdom building” through the church. The motivation to tithe is a worshipful recognition of GOD as the Creator and Possessor of the earth and everything in it, including us. Giving is a fundamental principle that is taught in the “Word” of GOD. The church and all its ministries are funded by the faith and obedience of the believer in the area of giving tithes and offerings (Malachi 3:10, “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse that there may be meat in my house”). We do not give in order to receive anything back from GOD; we give out of shear faith and obedience

(Malachi 3:8-10) Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me. “But you ask, ‘How do we rob you?’ “In your giving (tithes and offerings), you are under a curse-the whole nation of you-because you are robbing me (When we do not line up in the giving of our tithe and offerings, the bible teaches we are cursed with a curse). Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, “says the Lord Almighty. When we are faithful and obedient in our tithe and offerings, GOD releases HIS seven “I Will” promises according to Malachi 3rd Chapter verses 10-12;17:

  • I will open up the windows of Heaven .I will give you open access to all I own.

  • I will pour you out blessings you will not have room enough to receive . I will create overflow in your life.

  • I will rebuke the devour and he will not destroy the fruit of your vine . I will cancel out Satan’s attack on your prosperity allowing release on your increase.

  • Neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field .I will create perfect timing in your prosperity.

  • All nations will call you blessed . I will make your blessings obvious to all, not just believers.

  • You will be a delightsome land . I will make others desire to be like you based on how blessed you are (Delightsome/Chephets-[Hebrew] desire, longing)

  • I will spare them like a father spares a son that serves him. I will spoil you like a father spoils a son that serves him (Spare/Chamal-[Hebrew]deep compassion)

Sacrificial Offering
GOD requires us to give of our tithe and regular offerings. Sacrificial giving is an offering given beyond your tithe and normal Sunday
Sacrificial giving is a great opportunity to release your faith and watch the power of GOD as it operates on an unusual level. As you seek GOD’s face, in every sacrificial giving opportunity, you are stepping out on faith knowing wherever GOD guides GOD will provide.
