Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Proverbs – part 23

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 18:16

Scripture:

Prov. 3:9
Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:

Comment:

To honor the Lord with our belongings, and to give Him the first of all that we earn, can of course mean several things, but here we’ll talk about the importance of paying tithes.

Does tithing have anything to do with spiritual warfare? Yes, absolutely! We can’t be successful in spiritual warfare if we’re living under God’s curse. Curse??? Yes, you read correctly.

Mal.3:8-9
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.

To sin against God, in this case, stealing form Him, means stepping out of His protection.

“I thought tithing was only in the OT”, you might have heard someone say. Not at all! Jesus talked about it.

Matt. 23:23
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Jesus says that we ought to pay tithes as well as doing the other things He mentioned. One should not substitute the other.

In the spiritual war it’s incredibly important to have God’s protection. Don’t let the enemy trick you out of the protection, by making you not pay tithes to your church.
