Not Everyone Who Thinks They Are OK Are OK

Matthew 7:21 Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

·         Many think they are OK but are not

·         Some are hearing and doing – Building life and ministry on a rock

·         Some are hearing and not doing – Building life and ministry on sand

·         Many are Working Iniquity

 

ANCIENT KEY # 7 – THE DIVINE ORDER OF GIVING

Stop Robbing God From Making You Wealthy

Malachi 3:8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.

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

·         God speaks to his priests;

·         He tells them they are robbing him from blessing his people

·         If they will repent and obey the windows will open

·         The curse will be removed

·         The blessings will overflow

·         Are we there yet? – then let’s fix it

 

TWELVE BLESSINGS OF A TITHER

 

1.      Meat in the house                        I have a priest that feeds me with great teaching

2.      Open Window to heaven            I have an open communication with God, opportunities

3.      Abundance                                   I live in abundance, I have enough to lend

4.      Rebuke the devourer                  The enemy is stopped from stealing, killing and destroying

5.      Fruit protected                            I have a spiritual insurance policy

6.      No premature harvest                All of my plans, desires, and fruit come to completion

7.      People see you blessed of God   A distinct difference compared to non-tithers

8.      Delightsome land                        I live in a great house, have a great job in a great city

9.      Know it is a benefit to serve God People look at my life and see it is a benefit to serve God

10.  Book written about you              I am a history maker

11.  Considered one of His jewels     I am the apple of God’s eye

12.  Spared in the day of trouble      Evil will not come nigh my dwelling place

 

How Have We Robbed God From Blessing Us?

 ·         In Tithes And Offerings

·         Tithes - ma`aser (mah-as-ayr'); plural, tenth; especially a tithe

·         Offerings – teruwmah; a present (as offered up), especially in sacrifice or as tribute

 

We Lost This Key With The English Translation

 ·         We have used tithe as an all inclusive word for the tenth of anything

·         We have used the word offerings as an all inclusive word for…

o   Free will, burnt, heave, peace, drink, meat, wave, best, holy, thank, sin, etc…

·         We have translated many specific words into one catch all word = offerings

·         We have lost an ancient key to wealth

·         Each specific offering is a key to unlock kingdom wealth

GET READY FOR THE HEAPS

2 Chronicles 31:7 In the third month they began to lay the foundation of the heaps, and finished them in the seventh month.

8 And when Hezekiah and the princes came and saw the heaps, they blessed the Lord, and his people Israel.

9 Then Hezekiah questioned with the priests and the Levites concerning the heaps.

10 And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok answered him, and said, Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat, and have left plenty: for the Lord hath blessed his people; and that which is left is this great store.

 ·         When The People Began To Flow In The Divine Order of Giving

o   They had enough to eat

o   They had plenty left over

o   The Lord Blessed the people

o   A great amount was left in store in abundance

 

LEST YOU FORGET

 Deuteronomy 8:1-20

·         Silver and Gold

·         Deuteronomy 8:18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
