  • Activating the return on your tithe… (2)

    1. 1. 1 Activating the Return on Your Tithe… Learning to Open the Windows of Heaven… Scripture Refs: Deut. 26, Heb. 7:1-8, Heb 3:1
    2. 2. 2 What Do You Think About When You Tithe?  Do you have a clear focus and intent for your giving?  Do you have a clear focus, understanding and expectation for your Return?  Or, are your thoughts focused on what you don’t have?
    3. 3. Action Drill # 1: Pull Out a Piece of Paper Right Now And…  Honestly Write Down On It What You Are Thinking About As You ‘Tithe’…  Be honest. If it’s nothing, then write down nothing.  If it’s certain things you are worried about, write that down.  If it’s dinner, or the 1:00 pm Game, what ever it is you usually think about when you Tithe, write it down now and turn it in to Ms Velma… 3
    4. 4. 4 What Do You Believe When You Tithe? Do you actually choose to Believe that things will get better for you and your family… Or Are You Left Just ‘Hoping’ That They Will Some How…
    5. 5. Action Drill # 2 …Homework…  What are you Believing when you Tithe?  Anything? Nothing?  Stop! We are not looking for impressive, wordy, profound, religious sounding answers here. But in reality, for just good honest answers. We can’t help you grow and neither can the Lord, if first of all we are not honest with Him, and with ourselves and with each other…  Turn this homework in at next Wed Night’s Class. 5
    6. 6. 6 Finally, What Do You ‘Say’ When You Tithe? Did You Know That The Bible Actually Requires You To ‘Say’ Something When You Tithe? – Deuteronomy Chapter 26 lays out a Basic pattern for us to use in Tithing, and viewing it in light of the New Testament, we can follow these Principles and apply them in our lives and activate and receive the Abundance of it in our lives—today…
    7. 7. Learning to Follow the Word— Not Just Traditions… Well, if you are anything like me, then you have been giving your Tithe (placing it in the bucket), but you haven’t been ‘Tithing’—there’s a difference. What you say as you give is Tithing, and what you say as you give, is just as important as what you give… Wow! Ain’t that a shocker! 7
    8. 8. 8 The Bible Says That We Have a ‘High Priest…’ Heb. 3:1: Let us consider, Jesus the Apostle and High Priest of Our Profession…* What is the ‘job’ of a High Priest? One of the jobs of a High Priest is to worship God, and specifically worship God with the ‘Sacrifices and Offerings’ of the People. *From the Grk word ‘Homologia’, and it means ‘Confession’, or to ‘say the same thing as’. The same thing as Who? The Lord, the Father, the Holy Spirit, and The Word.
    9. 9. 9 The Lord Jesus’ Job as High Priest is to Worship The Father with Your Tithe ‘and’ Your Words About Your Tithe…  Deut. 26:3 “…And thou shalt go unto the priest that shall be in those days, and say unto him, I profess this day unto the LORD thy God…”  So, again, what are you thinking, saying, and Believing when you ‘Tithe’. We must be aware of this and act accordingly if we want the full Return that He Promised. You’ve got a partial return, and so have I. But our Father is not satisfied with that partial Return—so why should we be? Partial Obedience=Partial Return.
    10. 10. 10 Tithing is More Than Just Dropping Your Envelope in the Basket… It is What You Say to The Lord as You Submit it. It is What You Believe as You Submit it. It is What You Think upon as You Submit it. It is Even How You Act (Carry Yourself ) as You Submit it… Just Like David Did Before Goliath, You Must Speak and Act in Confidence. Why?
    11. 11. 11 Because God, Your Father, Jesus, Your Lord, High Priest and Savior, and Even the Devil is Listening to HOW You Speak Over Your Tithes…  And What You Believe God is Going to Do, with Them… – God Said He Would Open the Windows of Heaven and Pour You Out Such a Blessing There is NOT Room Enough to Receive It All. SOME body Has Got to Believe Like That, Think Like That, Act Like That and Speak Like That—And Not Merely for 10 Minutes, (Then Forget it as Soon as They Reach the Parking Lot!) – God said, That He will Rebuke The Devourer—For Your Sake. But What Have YOU Been Saying About That? – What ELSE did He Say? _____So, What Are You Saying ?
    12. 12. 12 God Has Said a Lot For You and Over You—The Catch is, It Doesn’t Work Unless You Say It And Believe It Too…  Deut. 26:4 “And the priest shall take the basket out of thine hand, and set it down before the altar of the LORD thy God. 5 “And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God…”  Num. 14: 28 Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in Mine ears, so will I do to you:  Are you speaking Good or Bad over yourself? Are you believing for the ‘specific’ return He’s Promised?
    13. 13. 13 And What About After You Tithe… You Again Must Be Mindful of How You Think, Talk, Act and Speak! Because Your High Priest is Still Listening! And Because Your Words ‘Water’ Your Seeds and Your Spiritual Crops!
    14. 14. 14 Not Just Any Ole Water Will Do, You Must Use Fresh Water To Produce Fresh Fruit and Produce—A Good Crop! Just Because You Think About Your Return is Not Enough—How Do You Think About Your Return. How Do You See it Coming? – Because Not Just ‘Any Ole Kind of Water’ on Your Plants Will Do! Rusty Run-off from a Junk Yard is ‘water’ alright, But How Will it Affect Your Spiritual Crops?
    15. 15. Action Drill # 3 Write down 3 Powerful Promises from the Word of God on a 3 X 5” Card and for the next 7 days, first thing in the morning look in the mirror and speak them out-loud to yourself. Don’t miss a day. Then note the results after 7 days. If you really want to see a difference in your person, do this twice a day… 15
    16. 16. 16 You Can’t Live Off of Rusty Water, So How Can Your Spiritual Crops Live off of Negative Words and Thoughts? Note the Plants Around the Hydrant, Lack Lustre and Dry—Half Dead.
    17. 17. 17 Just Like You, Your Crops Must Have Fresh Water—Daily God’s Word, Coming of Your Mouth in Confidence, Determination, Love and Faith Directed At Your ‘Seed’ (What You Have Given) is Fresh Water!
    18. 18. 18 Fresh Water Produces Fresh Fruits, Crops and Strong Vibrant Plants!
    19. 19. 19 **Your Words, Thinking And Resultant Actions Water Your Life and the Seeds You Have Sown In It…  And They Either Make Sickly Results…  Or Strong Powerful Crops… **
    20. 20. 20 And You Control The Results! And Don’t Worry About Getting Your Seed ‘Dirty’. Water Them Well!.
    21. 21. 21 Believe, Act, Think and Speak… Just as Strongly After You Tithe, as You do Before You Tithe, And Who Knows, One Day We May Hear You Tell Your Story of Abundance and Wealth…
    22. 22. 22 Activating the Return on Your Tithe… On The Larry King Show When He Comes Out of Retirement…
    23. 23. 23 Activating the Return on Your Tithe… Action Drill # 4: Getting Started Take Some Time to Tithe—Don’t Just Rush Through It Do it the night before, (then give it Sunday) or even a day or two before, do it as a family, if you can. Or as a couple, or if you must, even by yourself, but the Lord is there and remember—you are speaking directly to Him, and then to the Father. So, you are not really alone. Tithing is first personal. It is between you and the Lord, your High Priest, and your Father, God. Here’s a sample…
    24. 24. 24 Activating the Return on Your Tithe… Action Drill # 4 Continued…  “(I) We profess this day unto the Lord our God that we have come into the Inheritance which the Lord swore to give us. We are in the Land which You have provided for us in Jesus Christ, the Kingdom of Almighty God (Colossians 1:13). We were sinners in bondage by Satan; but we called upon the Name of Jesus and You heard our cry and delivered us from the power and authority of darkness and translated us into the Kingdom of Your Dear Son."  “Lord Jesus, You are our Lord and High Priest, we bring the Firstfruits of our income to You and along with You, we Worship our Father God with it. We rejoice in all the good which You and the Father have given to us and our household. We have hearkened to the voice of You, the Lord our God and have done according to all that You have commanded us. Now, look down from Your holy habitation from Heaven and bless us as You said in Deuteronomy 26:14,15 and Malachi 3:10-12, Deuteronomy 8:18, Deuteronomy 28:1-14, 2 Cor. 8:9, 2 Cor. 9:8... "
    25. 25. Activating the Return on Your Tithe… The 7 Promises of God to the Tither…  1.Bring ye all the Tithes into the Storehouse that there may be meat in my House, and prove Me now herewith, saith the Lord of Host if I will not  2. Open you the Windows of Heaven and pour you out a blessing and there shall not be room enough to receive it.  3. And I will Rebuke the Devourer for your sake  4. And he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground 25
    26. 26. Activating the Return on Your Tithe… The 7 Promises of God to the Tither… 5. Neither shall your Vine cast forth her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord.  6. And all Nations shall call you blessed  7. For Ye shall be a Delightsome Land saith the Lord of Hosts…  I avouch You to be my God, and You Avouch Me to be Your People…  We Prove you now here with and apply Isa. 45:11. You have opened unto us the Windows of Heaven Blessing – Now, in Jesus Name! Father, Thank You, and Do as Thou hath Said… 2 Sam. 7:25 26
    27. 27. 27 Activating the Return on Your Tithe…  And When You Come to Church to Submit Your Tithe, Speak Bethany’s Joint Church Confession…  Eventually Create your own from the Word of God that you can use at Home (see enclosed Lesson example).  Your Combined Faith at Church Adds Additional Power and Strength To the Words You Speak.  The Result for Jacob was, That in a Year That Was Full of Famine for the World, His ‘Crops’ Grew and He Reaped 100 Fold in the Very Same Year…  Keep Your Crops Watered…
    28. 28. Action Drill # 5: Tracking Long Term Results After you have finished ‘Tithing’ and have given your Tithe, Meditate on the 7 Promises of God to the Tither, and speak them out loud to yourself for the next 30 days and note the results—big or small and record the results in a small notebook for that purpose, and date and track the results for 1 year. 28
