"Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me, and keep me in this way that I am going, and give me bread to eat and clothing to put on, 21 so that I come back to my father’s house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God. 22 And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God’s house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You.” Genesis 28: 20-22 (NKJV)
Bible Readings: John 13: 34, Leviticus 27: 30-31, Matthew 23: 23, Hebrews 7: 7, Genesis 33: 4, Haggai 2: 8-9, 2 Corinthians 9: 6-8, Genesis 32: 24-30, Genesis 31: 11.
The reason why the church is not seeing the glory of God in the way it should is because there is no love within the church. The foundation of going high in life is love.
The law and principle of tithing has been misunderstood in the church. Tithe existed in 3 stages in the bible; before the law with Jacob, with Abraham & at the garden of Eden, it was reenacted during the law. The reason why you are not going higher is because you have robbed God. The part of the scripture you are not keeping and breaking, is the part that is breaking parts of your life.
Tithe is the first thing you remove! It is 10 percent of whatever you receive. You remove tithe from everything you get. Your organization/ business has to tithe. If you don't tithe, the devil carries it by force and it blows away.
When you tithe;
⁃ God pours out an overflowing blessings upon you.
⁃ God protects the remaining 90%
⁃ Your tithe speaks for you
⁃ God preserves you, your children and your seed.
⁃ God provides.
⁃ God prepares your tomorrow and you for your tomorrow.
⁃ God shows you a plan for prosperity.
