God’s Storehouse blessings

Note: This post is for SDA and Davidians, if you are not one, it may not be understandable to you.

She said again and again “I can’t believe I did that”.  We were both in a bit of a haze, she had just broadsided me on my drivers door as we came toward the intersection. Thank God she  did it at an angle and no one was hurt. This accident happened about 2 months ago, little did I know at the time, God’s hand was in it.

One of the most emphatic promises made by our Lord was given in His last Old testament book – Malachi. In (Mal 3:10) we read “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food  in My house, and try Me now on this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessings that there will not be room enough to receive it.”

As I had mentioned above, little did I know that through this accident , God was keeping His word in that Malachi promise. And I have no doubt , this is just the beginning! I’ll finish a bit later on this story.

Today in our “Christian” world the promises of (Mal.3:10) have been so perverted and mis-aligned that the Lord Himself must be in utter disgust, to see how the many false teachers and sooth sayers (especially on TV and Radio) are using these words to scam the people into pouring out millions and millions of dollars each and every year. It’s the ol “give to get” philosphy that these twisted men and women use to line their, and their croonies pockets.

One thing is sure, almost all of these scammers have luxury homes, and very expensive cars, not to mention the large annual salaries. It’s a pathetic misapplication of God’s word. They speak  nothing of present truth in regards to God’s storehouse.  Let’s look at the real intented meaning of this clear promise.

First we notice God tells us the “bring all the tithes into the storehouse.” Two things here we notice, all our God intended funds (tithes) should go into to His storehouse.  We should know just what is God’s “storehouse”.

In Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 30:18, we read ” The statement, “bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse,” implies that some are already bringing  into it, but not all. This, along with the charge that the whole nation is robbing God, positively shows that the tithes are now brought, not to God’s storehouse, but to some other house. To repeat, God’s storehouse has ever been and ever will  be where “the message of the hour” is, where “Present Truth” is, the house from which “meat in due season” is dispensed at the time the tithes are paid.”  – Victor T. Houteff

Also brother Houteff says we can deceive ourselves by thinking our charitable gift can replace the tithes to God. His command is, “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse,

Tract 4                            43

that there may be meat in Mine house. “Mal. 3:10.  The storehouse is the only place designated where one may bring the tithes and offerings and unload from his shoulders the heavy responsibility which a faithful stewardship imposes.  To do otherwise with them, is to leave one’s account in the heavenly ledger standing in the red, even though one may appropriate them to some meritorious work of charity.  While it is yet today, therefore, flee from this sin of Achan before it is forever too late!  “As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?” Ezek. 33:11.

So we see that the real storehouse brings the present truth to the people and fills the people up with their “meat in due season”. This being the case, can we see that almost all of the churches today are not speaking and dispensing “meat in due season”, therefore can’t really be called God’s storehouse.(For info on what is present truth -please see our last post)

God’s storehouse is currently teaching the “Elijah meesage” or also know as the Davidian message. This is the solemn warning message of the Lord’s imminent return to His churches to begin the beginning phase of the judgement for the living. The old past truths being taught week after week to satisfy the lukewarm laodiceans, is not where God’s storehouse is.

But we must be ever understanding that almost all of us today within the SDA, are currently going to a local church that is not preaching and teaching present truth. What to do? Well,  I stand on solid ground when I say —do not quit that church.  But what to do about the tithe? Here’s the best answer God has inspired me to give.

Week after week we go to our local SDA church, we use their electricity, their pews, their carpet, their meals (at times), their ac./heating, etc.  Would it be right in God’s eyes to take and take, without contributing? I would say not. Therefore we should give  weekly to our local church for their expenses. Many of us feel we are not contributing to God’s storehouse, but we are paying our dues, to fellowship with our friends and family.

But let us be mindful of our Lord’s quote “Give to Ceasar what is Ceasar’s give to God what is God’s” (Mark 12:17). On God’s intended funds to His storehouse we can send it (most likely by mail) to a real storehouse of God. Then and only then can God keep His promise to pour out  blessings that we have not have room enough to receive it.

Where then is the storehouse of God? As we read above, it’s where present truth is taught, the message of the hour. Not stale old messages consisting of present truth for a generation past, but our meat in due season. Lukewarm sermons are certainly not the “message of the hour”.The Lord is about to enter upon His churches –He want’s this message out there now.

Here’s a short list of 2 of God’s storehouses, which I have found are teaching present truth.

Ok, back to the story. As we had just collided, we got out and inspected each others truck/car. I remember her in a stupor saying more than once “I can’t believe  I did that”. Those words somehow struck me as a message to me for some reason. We politely exchanged info, and even called the police for a report (she requested it).

We were both going toward the upcoming intersection, but she was ahead and had stopped , due to the backed up traffic at the red light ahead. I was behind but saw that it was better to go on the right side passing lane because I was going to be going right ahead. As I pulled over and continued on ahead, she all of a sudden pulls out of her lane and goes right, into my left side door.

So after the accident we were able to (fortuantely) drive our vehicles home. But as I got home, thoughts started to swirl in my head. I knew it was her fault and she did have insurance but even still doubts creep in as to the final outcome. I really didn’t need this headache I thought. Then the Holy Spirit spoke. I listened.

It reminded me that I had just recently started sending my tithes to the above mentioned storehouses. Suddenly I understood! This was from God! The plan shown me was that I would receive a large check , much more than it would cost to fix the truck, and that I would be able to funnel much of that back into God’s work, what an excellent blessing!

The final blessing was this — I got to keep my truck amd get 2314.00 check, which the actual repair will be close to 500.00 to fix. God had poured out a blessing, and I will use much of it  for God’s purposes, maybe even alittle treat here and there too 🙂

So my brethren God keeps His word, and if we start putting HIS tithes into HIS storehouse, we shall reap His promises.
