A Testimony on God’s Tithe Promise

Leighton – Tech. Talent. Together.
In Malachi 3:10 is found one of the greatest promises  given us from our Maker, let us read —

“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 to you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”

Key in on the promiseand pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”

Is God slack on His word?

“For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” ( Isaiah 55:10-11)

As the above Word shows God’s promise WILL come true, it’s only that we must do our part. Pay the tithes to His storehouse “meat in due season”, and we experience blessings beyond what we expect.

With the recent Covid-19 situation, many unfortunately, have fallen on hard times, indeed even dire times.  For the heathen, this can all be expected, but for God’s true people–no! They are held to a greater responsibility.

Let me give you my personal testimony as to this wonderful promise.

As we have reported in prior posts, we know that truth is ever advancing, the scroll continues to be unrolled. But as God “does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7) we must keep abreast of his advancing prophets. Thus when we do we see in Scripture the promise of one last prophet “Elijah” to come right before the great and dreadful day of the Lord.

This prophet, along with the prior prophetess, both told us that tithe reporting is extremely important. Let us read —

“Angels keep a faithful record of every man’s work, and as judgment passes upon the house of God, the sentence of each is recorded by his name, and the angel is commissioned to spare not the unfaithful servants, but to cut them down at the time of slaughter. And that which was committed to their trust is taken from them. Their earthly treasure is then swept away, and they have lost all.

And the crowns they might have worn, had they been faithful, are put upon the heads of those saved by the faithful servants whose means was constantly in use for God. And everyone they have been the means of saving, adds stars to their crown in glory, and increases their eternal reward.” (Testimonies, vol. 1, p.198)

 

Mal. 3:11-12 — “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. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts.”

Under no other conditions does He promise His blessings. You have hard luck? You cannot make ends meet? Start paying your tithes. Note carefully that God requires not only tithe but tithes; that is, tithe and free will offering. He does not want them spent on something of your own devising. You are to bring them into the “store house.” (Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 30, page 19)

 

“The command is, “…they shall not appear before the Lord empty.” Deut. 16:16.

God does not lie. He carries out His promises. He never fails. There is nothing more offensive to Him than unbelief and unfaithfulness in His Word.” (Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 30, page 20)

Both a fearful warning and an upbeat confirmation that paying our tithes cancels “hard luck”–wow!

As I continued my walk with the Lord, after about a couple years the Spirit of Truth guided me into the final message of Elijah (Mal. 4:5-6). This indeed truly awoke me and set in motion my faithful tithe paying career.

One of the greatest joys in my walk, I have discovered, is the joy of doing accounting and bookkeeping for God. I take delight in keeping track of the ingo/outgo of my secular business. In other words, I — get down to business — God’s business!

This dedication is firmly entrenched because I know that the promise will be fulfilled, indeed it has! Remember God says “try Me on this”! Not only does His Word make a promise, He says that even if you are skeptical –try it and see.

Not just a short “test trial of paying” but a commitment. This is how it will work. In other words, we don’t return His money back to Him to see what we can get, rather we do it for His kingdom’s sake, yet knowing that as a result, we will reap great benefits!

So as I became aware of God’s true storehouses today, those that have “meat in due season”, I began that weekly duty of returning His money back to Him as Malachi instructs us. Slowly but surely I began to see more and more business come. And soon, of the over 25 competitors in our large city (over 800,000) we became the number one rated company.

There seemed to be a guiding influence getting things done behind the scenes! Word spread and the money coming in began to be consistently steady and increasing. This success soon made me keenly aware of “why” all was running seamless and successful. God was doing as He said.

So despite these COVID restrictions, unlike some of our competitors, we have INCREASED  our business. We can only say Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!

Now, contrast this with sister C, she is a longtime so-called “present truth believer”. She talks a good game but has shown her money is not where her mouth is, as they say. Recently she called and we had a long talk. She complained about being down and out, the COVID situation greatly exasperating her situation.

We have talked to her many times before. She KNOWS what is required. The story of the little old lady and the mite should be straight counsel to her —

“And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings [b]for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.” (Luke21:1-4)

Even if we are not well off financially that is no excuse for us to neglect our proper bookkeeping and returning His portion due. I asked her “are you accounting for your ingo/outgo”? She responded no as she “doesn’t even make ends meet”. That is still not the attitude. You DO THE ACCOUNTING anyway, to know what is what.

In closing, the Lord has His hand out for a deal, are we willing to extend ours to shake the hand of the GREAT KING OF THE UNIVERSE?  A BINDING agreement?

Here are God’s true storehouses that we have paid into and seen His Word fulfilled in bountiful ways.
