Put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
How does that sound? GOD actually says… “Test Me! I WILL bless you so much you will be completely satisfied… content… lacking nothing.” If that sounds like a good deal, here’s how to receive God’s promised blessing… tithe. Malachi 3:10…
Bring the full tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
Whether or not Christians receive this blessing is based on believing God. If we believe Him, we’ll tithe. If we don’t, we won’t. Jesus affirmed this in Matthew 23:23…
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.
To keep the command of Malachi 3 has these benefits… “11 I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the Lord of hosts. 12 Then all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts.”
So back to my question… Need a blessing? If so, believe God and follow His command.
