Malachi 3:8-11 “Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, In what way have we robbed You? In tithes and offerings.
You are cursed with a curse, For you have robbed God,he says, Even this whole nation,has robbed him ,and forgotten him.They have forgotten his
blessings,look at the media, USA is being punished.WE have forgotten to pray to him and give him his dues,and to thank him.
Bring all the tithes into his storehouse,the church,his temple,where we pray to him, That there may be food in his house, that's the tithes we give
him, And try Him now in this, Says the LORD of hosts, If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there
will not be room enough to receive it.
And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in
the field, Says the LORD of hosts;” these are quotes from our bible to help you.God says this in the bible.I,believe him,when we don't do this,it
upsets him,and he turns his face,because he gave us all his,and what do we give back to him,nothing? Then we wonder why we have so many problems here
on earth.We brought it all upon our self.Consequently, he is not his wife’s pastor. He will carefully guard himself from infringing on the wife’s
spiritual privileges. He will regard her as a helpmeet to himself, both domestically and spiritually, and will accept this help in both spheres. His
wife will be more to him than a household servant or baby-machine. He will take pains for her welfare and will, as the scriptures state, truly nourish
and cherish her.Instead of judging and arguing with her.Meet her half-way my friend,it won't hurt honestly,You might actually learn or hear something
you like.Or maybe try a different church,if this church isn't preaching the true bible and truth.Find out where the church is and what they believe
in.Find out what she is believing in.But please don't judge her,and she shouldn't judge you either.She needs to listen to,and pray about it,and open
her heart to.Please don't stop her being baptist,as long as she isn't in a cult,or hurting herself or anyone.You are married in gods eyes you are
one,so you decide together as one.You are the head,but she is also equal with you(you are one remember).she stand with you,(beside you),not behind or
ahead of you.To make a marriage work,you must talk,and meet each other half-way.I,learned this long time ago.I,have been with my guy 24 years now,HE
believes in god,doesn't go to church,did when he was a child.we talk about God all the time,good conversations.I,don't force nothing on him,I,know
when its time to talk about the bible with and not when to.He,doesn't stop me of going to church.I,don't shove or push anything down his throat.I,pray
for him.I,know he will come with me soon,he is getting more closer,i can tell by the way he acts and talks.I,leave him to God,but i,am here if he
wants me.I,hope this helps.To your wife,keep your faith,and pray for him,be there for him,he will come to you when he ready.to your wife,they watch
us,so walk and talk with god.all will be okay.May god bless you all and safe in JESUS ARMS,I AM PRAYING FOR YOU BOTH AND THE WORLD.
It All Comes From God,this is why we give tithes,Elsewhere, the Bible says, “The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine, says the LORD of hosts”
(Hag. 2:8). Before we become possessive about the treasures of this world, let us first remember that He created this planet and everyone on it, and
even though Satan holds a temporary dominion through sin (2 Cor. 4:4), the earth still belongs to God.
Furthermore, God is responsible for every means that people have to make a living (John 3:27, Jas. 1:17). Are you a farmer? You plant God’s seeds in
His earth and rely upon His rain and sunshine to ripen it to harvest. Are you an auto worker? All the steel, glass, rubber, plastic, oil and gasoline
are products from God’s earth. Are you a craftsman? Your talent or skill to work at a trade is given by God. He has given you your brain, eyes,
ears, mouth, hands, fingers, legs, and feet that you use to earn your living. Even the silver and copper in our coins, and the wood pulp in our paper
currency comes from God’s earth. It is fair of God to only require a tenth to be returned to Him, since He owns 100% of this planet.Don't you
think,HE DOES SO MUCH FOR US.
Unfortunately, many Christians AND NON-BELIEVERS misunderstand the idea of tithing. They often think of it as giving a tenth from “their own”
property to God. However, in reality it is God that has done the giving to us, and claims the return of only 10% of His own property. Tithing is not
taking a tenth of our own money and giving it to God, but it is returning a tenth of what was already His to begin with! The scripture says,“But who
am I, and who are my people, That we should be able to offer so willingly as this? For all things come from You, And of Your own we have given You”
(1 Chron. 29:14). God is so generous to us. He gives us the 90% and retains only 10% of what is rightfully His.Genesis 28:22 gave us the answer,
“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.” So we are
to pay tithe into the house of GOD, see also Malachi 3:10.We are never to give our tithe to any MOG or pastor but paid into the house of GOD. The next
thing to consider is what happens after paying our tithe? I must point out that one of the ways the devil try to rob many of the benefit or blessing
that goes with tithing is our trying to poke nose into the way and manner tithe paid are used in the house of GOD . They try to know what happens to
the tithe they paid, and by so doing the devil corrupt their mind by telling them that the pastor is using their tithe for their private or personal
benefits. This is a wrong perceptive of tithing,now,I,hate to admit,their is corrupt pastors and faith teachers,but they will be judged by god,they
will be judge worse then us,god says.. Since it is not to the pastor you paid tithe to but to GOD, you should let your mind go, as to how it is used
or misused, It is GOD that will punish the person that misuses GOD’S tithe and not you. All you know is that you have performed your obligation
with GOD ALMIGHTY,NOT MANKIND and should expect the reward or blessing that goes with it from GOD.
DOES TITHING ONLY INVOLVE MONEY? No tithing does not involve only money .We are to tithe from the resources that came our way, whether from farm
crops, if you are a crop farmer or from animal if you are an animal farmer or from the fruits from our farm. See the definition of tithe again in
Genesis 28:22, “ And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be GOD’S house and ALL THAT YOU GIVE ME I WILL SURELY GIVE TENTH TO YOU”.
However, money issue came into picture in tithing in DEUT. 14:22-29. Here GOD gave the instruction that resources mentioned above (animals, crops,
wine, fruits etc) could be exchanged for money see verse25. That is to say a farmer is free to pay tithe from the physical items from his or her farm
such as chicken or live animals, crops or fruits etc. But if he sells those items, he could pay tithe of money proceeds from the sells.i.e.from what
he realized from the sales. Many farmers prefer to pay tithe of money because it is easy to calculate tithe from money proceeds. For example, a farmer
who has four ram from his farm, how do you expect him to pay tithe of live ram from that four collection? But if he sells the four rams he could pay
tithe from the proceeds from the sells.you must be qualified to pay tithe (you must be in the covenant, you must be born again).Those who have no
covenant relationship with GOD are not expected or required to pay tithe. So the first thing GOD expects from you before you start to pay tithe is to
enter into a covenant relationship with HIM-get born again.
Secondly tithing must be paid correctly and from the dept of your heart not as if you are been forced or compelled to do so. Some ignorantly
use number six (natural reasoning) in treating tithe matter. As a result, they just give any thing as tithe. For emphasis, tithe is not just any
amount; it must be 10% of the resources that comes your way. The principle is that you must be faithful to compute your tithe obligation correctly
before GOD can accept it and bless you back. Remember GOD is not in need or a beggar. HE knows the resources that came your way and the tithe you
suppose to pay. (Remember the offering of CAIN and ABEL in Genesis!)
I want you all to be very careful in dealing with tithe issue so that the devil will not rob you the benefit of tithing by refusing to tithe
simply because some so called person or people are abusing proceeds of tithing. Yes, it is true some lazy and ignorant and self appointed person or
people are abusing tithe payment. They are ignorant of the meaning and essence of tithe that is why they view tithe as avenue to raise money and put
food on their table. You will see and know such person by their constant coercing and begging their members to pay their tithe. For emphasis tithe
payment must never be coerced, forced or begged for. It must flow or paid willingly or it will not be accepted. by GOD.
You asked me why should I, pay tithes? if I don’t pay my tithes,I,personally won't receive any blessings and God would turn away from me. I,am so
thankful for all the blessing he gave me and my family. Let us look at what happens if I faithfully pay my tithe; The answer is in MALACHI Chapter 3
verses 10 to 12: First GOD said HE will open the windows of heaven and pour US a blessing……, ”
Secondly, GOD said HE will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your grounds…, ” I,really believes this,
every time,I,needed a answer,or needed money bad,a answer always came for me,it may not always been the money,it maybe a time given for me to get
it.they always worked with me,or the money showed up from weird places.Or some good person helped me.I,didn't always get the answer i expected,but god
always helped me,out my problem.You see I, have that much faith in God,I,give it all to him,not just a little part of me.He always listens,he is never
late.Also,I,don't get a answer right that minute,I,prayed for a 3 BR home,tried everything,then all a sudden 2 years later,a house fell into my
hands.I,made god a promise,and I,will keep it.That I,will start bible study in my home,if he gave a house .now,I,asked about a vehicle,to get us
around,my broke,I,need one for my wheelchair.I,live on ssi.I,know when God thinks,I,need one,I,will get one.
In other words, if you don’t pay your tithe, you will never enjoy the full blessings GOD in your life. Secondly you will continue to suffer
under the bondage of EVIL............... Also about your marriage,and your wife always asking you to come to church,this is the bible to....Who is
wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom But if you have bitter envy and
self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For
where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle,
willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those
who make peace.
Being a Christian is not a birthright...It is a relationship with Jesus.You have to repent,and do his will,Jesus is tugging at your heart,this is why
it upsets you,you aren't ready to change yet.Only you can make that choice.You need to pray to God,read his word and ask questions,like you are
doing,and have faith,The answers are in our bible and Gods word.He is always truth,not mankind. Its very simple,Someone had to create everything,it
had to be said,god spoke it and and it happen.Its beyond our knowledge,he is the beginning and the end,Always been and always will be.God will explain
it to us,when the time comes.He is spiritual(GOD).WE ARE IN A SPIRITUAL WAR,WITH MAN KINDS SOULS,WITH EVIL AND BAD.You can't stand in the middle of
the road,you have to chose which side you want,good or bad(wide road,or narrow road),you see most are on the wide road.They think just because they
good,they will go to heaven,God says nope,you have to things to get to be with him.He is perfect,we were to,until the garden of Eden happen.Love your
wife,god commands this,don't let this mess you up,because of your belief."Do not be harsh with your wife."(Colossians 3:19) When a wife is sensitive
realize that harsh answers, angry looks, irritated tones of voice and impatience will deeply affect your wife. Rejoice that she is a lady and isn't
like you - remember that she is a precious gift God has given you.
"The husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife."(I Corinthians 7:3-5),Love your wife as Christ loved the Church."(Ephesians
5:25) Risk your life to help or save your wife. Christ's love for the church is without limits, nothing is held back. He gave His life for the church
- before you loved Him. His love does not depend on your love for Him. Under God's authority - love your wife as service--as giving your life to
God.She is doing this.The symbol of Christianity is the cross. What is that all about? It is all about the self-sacrifice of Jesus, by which men and
women are reconciled to God, and are brought into the experience of redemption and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit. They have the forgiveness of sins,
receive the gift of eternal life, and are bound for eternity. They are baptized into the community of faith, become members of the church and know
that one day they’ll be part of a Glorious Church around the Throne of God, out of every kindred, tongue, tribe and nation, and it's all because of
the cross.Christ gave Himself for the church intentionally and purposefully. Paul goes on to say this: “Christ loved the church and gave himself up
for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the Word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church” (Eph.
5:26-27). The sacrifice of Christ was intentional. It was purposeful; He was doing it for a reason. In the same way, “Husbands, love your wives,
intentionally and purposefully.”Men and women, this is your wake-up call from the Lord! The secular culture and the secular norm is producing utter
disaster in marriages and families. you all better get your acts together with each other.If not you will be lonely and divorced.Remember what brought
you all together,and start back there.Remember through bad times and good times.Yo all know you really love each other.You must listen to each
other,and communicate.You did in the beginning,you can still do it.God never stops loving us,He always listens and communicates with us,also give us
many chances.Jesus said forgive 70 times,seven to forgive.
Husbands, love your wives. That is your duty. A husband who truly loves his wife will understand that she is a human being with feelings and
emotions. She needs more than food to eat and a roof over her head. He will understand that she needs, yea, demands his time, attention and affection.
He will feel tender toward her needs and will do all within his power to see that her domestic requirements are attended to. He will not come home and
perch on his recliner like a king, demanding that she wait on him, hand and foot. We know this, because Christ is not such an husband to the church,
and it is this comparison that the husband needs to live up to.this will help to save your marriage with your wife to.
Love, TOGETHERNESS, and Humility WILL HELP BOTH OF YOU.
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfil GOD'S
joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in
lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made
Himself of no reputation,and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the
point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the
name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord.I,just wanted to say,love one another,don't give up on each other,keep your marriage,its worth saving,Don't give up because
of the church.
