THE WORD 9
Matthew 6:24 “You can’t worship two gods at once. Loving one god, you’ll end up hating the other. Adoration of one feeds contempt for the other. You can’t worship God and Money both.
MELCHIZEDEK (PRE INCARNATE CHRIST)
Genesis 14:18 And Melchizedek, the king of Salem and a priest of God Most High, brought Abram some bread and wine. 19 Melchizedek blessed Abram with this blessing: “Blessed be Abram by God Most High,Creator of heaven and earth.20 And blessed be God Most High,who has defeated your enemies for you.” Then Abram gave Melchizedek a tenth of all the goods he had recovered.
LUKE 41:42 “What sorrow awaits you Pharisees! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your herb gardens, but you ignore justice and the love of God. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things.
THE TITHE – Not to be taken, but given
· My first ten percent is a trust agreement of value between myself and the Lord.
· I willingly put myself in a position that I look to God as my source and the root of blessing
· It is a decision, not a feeling. Walk by faith not by sight.
· Faith = Surrender
