We have to put something in the ground at sometime if we want to eat.
Tithes,Offerings & God
This is an area where Father God has proven himself to me over and over again.
Let me share some facts with you so I can contend with the fiction many people are accustomed to hearing. Logically if Father is blessing you financially you will have no problem talking about money but when the subject of giving comes up to someone who has little to nothing they will contend with the word. It seems unreasonable to think God wants offerings and tithes from us when we have so little already but it is true He does want them but not for His sake but for ours.
In my past life I was doctor authorized and physically disabled. I lived on the welfare system of the state alongside government subsidies. I know what it is to be given permission to live out the disabled life and all it's contrived conveniences and yet when I met Christ all things changed. He challenged me to either accept His word as true or not. I embraced His word as truth and allowed Holy Spirit to lead me and guide me through and out of the tangled mazes of a worldly system that sought to keep me in bondage.
With the word of God I have successfully walked many people out of poverty and off the dependency of a system that would do nothing but lie to you. If God be true then it would make the systems of this world a liar would it not? We have to believe someone's report and I chose to believe Him and take Him literally at His word.
It is true many people debate and argue whether we should tithe, how we should, how much we should and so on. I am not ignorant of the debates but instead I quietly and resolutely go about my business, which is His business. He blesses me and has sustained me over these last 28 years and I don't see Him stopping as long as I obey Him and His word.
Our ministry is faith based. My life is faith based and it has been told me that without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He rewards of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
Giving Tithes,Offerings and Tribute are just a small gift compared to what He gave for all of us, eternal life.
Come study the word with us and experience for yourself how tithes and offerings are supposed to work.
Here is an example:
While they were eating Jesus took bread and blessed it. Then He broke it in pieces and gave it to His disciples saying, "Eat, this is my body..." Christ gave up material bread to open up the understanding of the receiver for the giver already had the understanding of the gift given.When it was time Jesus gave of himself for the sake and benefit of others. He knew the cost of the gift and gave sacrificially as He knew Father wanted. Many times in life Father will ask us to give, and yes often times sacrifice for the sake of the kingdom but do we heed His voice or do we draw back? It was this simple illustration that was recorded for our benefit. The disciples were already eating which denotes an act pertaining to self, feeding or taking care of oneself but Jesus ever the example stops right in the middle of the feast, blesses & breaks the bread then starts ministering to them about the true cost of discipleship. It's comes from the blessing, being broken and given away.
Your finances may appear as simple bread but placed in the hands of the master, He will bless them, show you how to break them and who to give them to. Little becomes much in His hands.
