Dearly beloved brethren, Abraham in deed was the Father of faith, because there were so many good saintly virtues to learn from him.

After God helped him to overcome those that took Lot and his household prisoners of war, he did something in appreciation of what our Father in heaven, did for him.

He paid tithes of all to the servants of the Lord. See it yourself

And he gave him tithes of all.

Dearly beloved brethren, no doubt times are hard, but are you still faithfully obeying God in matters of tithes and offerings?

You answer must be affirmative yes.

If it is no, there is fearsome consequences now and in eternity.

What is tithe and offerings?

Tithe is the ten percent of your total earnings, given to the Lord joyfully.

Leviticus 27:30
And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD.

Leviticus 27:32
And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.
Where do you pay your tithe? To your local church where you are being fed spiritually.

Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. 14:19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: 14:20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all. – Genesis 14:18-20

 

And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the most high God – Genesis 14:18-20

But how about offerings?

You also pay your offerings to help in running projects for advancements of the kingdom in your local church or if you are so led by the blessed Holy Spirit to any other minister of God, who is edifying you spiritually.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again

Romans 12:8
Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the most high God – Genesis 14:18-20

1 Corinthians 16:2
Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
But then all of these must be done cheerfully while you are living in biblical righteousness and true holiness lifestyle.

Matthew 23:23
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Luke 11:42
But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
Jesus Christ our Lord rebuked the Jews who thought paying tithes is the ultimate while living ungodly lifestyle. See it yourself.

Luke 18:12
I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess

And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the most high God – Genesis 14:18-20

Paying tithes and giving offerings while living contrary to God’s unchanging, unfailing, infallible, and eternal words of God, can not profit anyone in this life or the one to come.

However, when you are paying tithes and offerings and you are living in biblical righteousness and holiness lifestyle, you shall profit exceedingly now and even in the world to come.

Rewards on earth.

Proverbs 3:9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: 3:10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

Malachi 3:8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. 3:9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. 3:11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. 3:12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the most high God – Genesis 14:18-20

Rewards in eternity

Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

1 Timothy 6:19
Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the most high God – Genesis 14:18-20

Beloved brethren, always remember this, when you pay your tithe to your local church, it doesn’t end up there.

You are actually paying it to Christ in heaven

Hebrews 7:8
And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he lieth

Revelation 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

So beloved brethren, like Abraham, be very faithful in paying your tithe and offerings, while living biblical holiness and righteousness lifestyle.

Then you shall be abundantly blessed here and hereafter in Jesus name.

And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the most high God – Genesis 14:18-20
