Ezra 2:68-69 ‘…they offered FREELY for the house of God to set it up in His place: They gave after their ability unto the treasure of the work.’
3:7 ‘They gave money also unto the masons, and to the carpenters…’
When? On the first day of the week.
I 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.’
Notice who gives what, when, and who gave the prosperity – ‘as God hath PROSPERED him’.
II Corinthians 9:6-7 ‘But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly, and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly or of necessity: for God loveth a CHEERFUL GIVER.’
Oops! There goes that special offering ‘not out of necessity’
‘Lord supply our needs’ Really? All of your wants, needs, and desires are already taken care of.
Sow pennies – reap pennies. Sow dollars – reap dollars. Sow hundred dollar bills and reap thousands.
Your reaping will always be proceeded by your sowing.
The Tithe – always 10% - ‘the first fruits of ALL THINE INCREASE’
The tithe is used for the wrong thing in Churches today.
Malachi 3:8-10 ‘BRING ye ALL the tithes into the storehouse’
Don’t SEND it to every Tom, Dick, and Harriet on television
BRING it to the House of God
You are blessed on the tithes and offerings but not just on the tithe.
