The tithing principle (Part 1) bible

The Chronicle

Tithing is one of the major key connectors, which facilitates the automatic opening of God’s heavenly floodgates or windows. It creates a spiritual gradient which allows the emptying of God’s abundant blessing upon your life. 

Malachi 3:12 says concerning tithers: “And all the nations will call you blessed for you will be a delightful nation.” KJV Malachi 3:10 says: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not open the flood gates of heaven and pour out so much a blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” The King James Version says, … and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

The Living Bible says: … and pour out a blessing so great that you won’t have room enough to take it in! Try it! Let me prove it to you. The Revised Standard Bible says: … and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. The New Jerusalem Bible says: … and pour out an abundant blessing for you. The New American with Apocrypha says: … to pour down blessing upon you without measure. The Hebrew word for tithe, ma’ser, literally means a tenth part. 

Tithing is giving to God a tenth of whatever we receive. It is not a donation to God, but a recognition of His ownership of our lives. In God’s law, the Israelites were required to give one-tenth of their livestock, the land’s produce, as well as of their income, as an acknowledgement that God had blessed them. Leviticus 27:30–32 says: “… and all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s. It is holy to the Lord … if a man wants at all to redeem any of his tithes, he shall add one-fifth to it. And concerning the tithe of the herd or the flock, of whatever passes under the rod, the tenth one shall be holy to the Lord.” (NKJV)
