NUGGETS OF FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS – PART 9
NUGGETS OF FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS
Malachi 3:10-12 “Bring all the tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My Temple. And test Me now with this, says Yahweh of Hosts, whether I will not open the windows of the heavens for you and pour out a blessing until there is no sufficiency of room to store it. 11And I will rebuke the devourer for you, and he shall not destroy the fruit of your ground against you; nor shall your vine miscarry against you in the field, says Yahweh of Hosts. 12And all nations shall call you blessed, for you shall be a delightful land, says Yahweh of Hosts.”
The biblical tithe is ten percent (10%). The tithe was a statute for the landowner, farmer, rancher, or business owner. The lowly wage earner was never required to pay a tithe. A wage earner makes no profit, so has no increase to tithe upon. So let’s say, as some believe and teach, the Law was done away with. If that is true, then the tithe was also done away with. Do the prosperity preachers ever consider that? But praise Yah, the Law was not, is not, and never will be done away with. If you study the tithe in the Old Testament, you will discover that tithing was around long before the Law was given at Mt. Sinai. Tithing is an eternal precept of Yahweh, not just a law of Moses.
Today, Yeshua wants us to give as much as we want to give. No limits. 2 Cor 9:6-15, “But remember this: the one sowing sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one sowing generously will also reap generously. 7 Each one as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or out of necessity, for Yahweh loves a cheerful giver. 8 And Yahweh is able to make all grace to abound toward you, that in everything, always having all self sufficiency, you may abound to every good work; 9 even as it has been written, “He has distributed liberally, He has given to the poor, His righteousness abides forever.” 10 Now He that supplies seed to the Sower and bread for eating, may He supply and multiply your seed and increase the fruits of your righteousness, 11 in everything you being enriched to all sincerity, which works out thanksgiving to Yahweh through us. 12 Because the ministry of this service is not only making up the things lacking of the saints, but also multiplying through many thanks-givings to Yahweh, 13 through the proof of this charitable service, they glorifying Yahweh by your freely expressed submission to the gospel of Messiah, and through your generosity you have become partakers with them and with all men; 14 and they offer prayer on your behalf with greater love, because of the overflowing grace of Yahweh which is on you. 15 But thanks be to Yahweh for His unspeakable free gift.”
So, let’s blow the lid off that 10% limitation tithe. We owe Yeshua everything, 110% at least!! We love Him with every fiber of our being, so let’s give a token back to Him through a worthy ministry. He loved us enough to die for us, so the least we can do is die to our selfish self and give as free people should! Bless His holy Name forever! Partner with us, folks. We’re going forward and upward in the Kingdom, and we would love to go with you into all the world. Let’s give our all for Yeshua! Freely you have received, freely give. Mat 10:8b.
