Concepts of tithing. 2. Thieves tithe 3. Choice of tith ing 4. Tithing Truths 5. Conclusions tithing excuses To make matters worse, we'll play with not very deep on implied truths of tithin g. Finally, it can never fail: discuss about the most common excuses for not tit hing. Study Part A Concepts of tithing Etymological formed by the prefix "ten", meaning a tenth. So tithing is to give the Lord a tenth (10%) of our income. Semantic. 1. It is the duty to live on thi s planet. 2. God gave us this land for our benefit, but on one condition: to giv e 10% of everything we produce. Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it have dominion ove r the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens and every living thing that move s upon the earth. Gen 1: 28 (RV1995) The tithe of all products of the field, whe ther grain from crops or fruit trees, belongs to the Lord, for he is consecrated .

They plan and execute heists. Whether big or small. Thieves by hobby. They are called cleptomanÍacos. And because they are characterized m eets steal little things. Oblivion thieves. 1. The people of Israel suffered a " collective forgetting." When the Lord said "you are robbing me, they said: What are you stealing? 2. Have you ever had something like that? Some, distracted, su ffer from this weakness. So it's good to remind us constantly. 3. The people of Israel did not realize how terrible they were committing. Apparently, it was a s mall breach, but no. Stealing is stealing, is a penny or a thousand suns. And ye t, when we stole the Lord Almighty, in whose sight nothing is hidden. 6 I the Lord do not change. That is why you descendants of Jacob, have not been ex terminated. 7 From the time of their ancestors have moved away from my decrees a nd have not saved. Turn to me, and I will return to you says the Lord Almighty. But you reply: In what sense we have to return? 8 Does the man steals God? You a re robbing me! [Robbed and cheated, AMP] But you ask, How do we rob you? In tith

es and offerings. Mal 3:6-8 (NIV). E l D ie z m o: P a g a r o b a r R o Part C Choice of tithing Paying the tithe to the Lord. When you give your tithe, you get the blessings of God. What does that mean? Open windows and reprimanded eater. 1. Open windows means to be under divine favor. "I will open windows heaven and pour out so much blessing that abound on and. " (Mal 3:10) Image: 2R 7:2,19 2. Eater reprimanded, or protected. "Rebuke for you to consuming, and not destroy the fruit of your land or your vine in the field will be barren. " (Mal 3:11 a) The NIV says, "cut off the lobster, not to ruining their crops and vines in the fields do not lose their fruit says the Lor d Almighty. " About Who is devouring devouring? In Eden the devil is typified by a snake here, the devourer, call lobster (NIV), caterpillar, grasshopper, grasshoppers, etc.. What makes the eater? The eater would eat the fruit of their crops (the result of your effort). The devouring their crops destroyed (the source of your livelih ood). Mal 3:11 b The passage of devouring the countryside left the vines complet ely sterile (symbols of protection, honor and wealth). Mal3: 11c On the blessing. God has promised his children prosper. But as every promise, ha s its conditions. Someone said "every promise of the Lord has three conditions." Each condition set forth in the Bible implies an act of obedience. And all obed ience involves blessing (the blessing follows obedience, Dt 11:26-28). Here, the promise is "a blessing, that over and abound." And the condition is to pay the tithe to the Lord. And it's the only time God says "prove me in this." Prosperit y is not just receive€but also to manage wisely and correctly blessing. Illustr ation: One day I asked why, despite the fact that tithes and offerings, I'm not so prosperous. Most will claim the Lord, until at analyzing my accounts (revenue s and expenses) I realized that my problem was "lack of blessing" but "waste of blessing." To steal the tithe to the Lord. 1. If you do not tithe, voluntarily put you unde r the curse of the devil. It means: Windows closed eater loose. 2. Keep the windows closed means not having God's favor on our lives, which mean s not only in economic performance. 3. An eater loose in our life and ministry i s able to eat and what we produce. On the curse in Christ we have been blessed with every blessing (Eph 1:3) and ca n not be cursed. That is, the devil has no dominion over us, nor can have more. But the devil is prowling, looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). He has n o right to touch a single hair of ours, unless you offer it. All sin (disobedien ce) is a way to open the door to the devil. If you do not ask forgiveness immedi ately (start to obey), the devil will come into your life. And if you do not do anything about it, the devil will destroy your life. Everything, not because the devil is the greatest, but because you allow it. No tithing is a form of disobe dience that gives the enemy legal right to devour our blessing. If lack of forgi veness opens the door to the torment, depression and confusion, not tithing open s the door for consuming activity. E l D ie OMZ: E l M in is te rio ra dor D evo V s.

By giving these cushioning your selfishness. 2. By giving these training you to minister better (love, serve, help, etc.).. That is, to "collaborate in God. " O LABO R AR Part E Excuses to tithing Ignorance. 1. Some people do not tithe because you never taught them. Acts 17:30 2. Others, because they know the subject so supercialmente (is that just taught ) that it is as if they knew nothing. For disobedience. 1. Tithing liability fai th is not an act, therefore useless. Heb 11:6 2. Tithing is an act of obedience of faith, and faith pleases God. 1Jn 2:4 For disbelief. 1. Disbelief is lack of faith. 2. Faith is only possible with the word (listening and re-listen).

T hose who do not tithe, and owes a debt to God. Rom 13:7 2. If God is first in your life, you first pay your tithes to the Lord, based and confident in what God says, "prove me now herewith" (Mal 3:10). Then, with what the Lord will continue supplying, pay your other bills. For MICI. 1. A n excuse is unreasonable "not to, because they have." But "giving" is a reasonab le motivation for "ask." Luc 6:38 2. When you have your heart to give, immediate

ly God will supply for des. The Bible says that God is who gives us bread (to ea t) and the seed (for planting). 2Cor 9:10 For traumas. 1.

Tithing is a biblical figure, so (like everything God has said and done) for our blessing. Forget the past and walk into the future, but in obedience to the Lord. Fil 3:13 3. A brother cheated overcame his trauma after his wife told him: "Your problem is not seeing what you do with your tithe, but give to God what b elongs to God." 4. How we use your trauma?

Ci the ci ion Conclusions 1. Legislation in the Old Testament stated that it had to tithe. Today, in the N ew Testament tithe not because it is a law but by love. And obedience is a produ ct of love. Jn 14:15 And it is obedience that attracts every blessing. 2. With r egard to the tithe we have two options: Pay or Steal. If we pay we come under bl essing, if we steal, we put ourselves under a curse. 3. The tithe reminds us who God is (owner) and who are we (administrators). 4. Learn a little about the tit

he to do it with faith, and face it victoriously every excuse. 5. Cultivate the habit of systematically. That is, no sooner get money first and save the tithe a way in an envelope. When Sunday comes, go and take it to the house of the Lord. 1 Cor 16:2
