TEXT: MALACHI 3: 6-8
6 For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
7 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?
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.
Key verse: Luke 6:38 “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”
Question: Some denominations don’t believe in tithe payment. I want to be cleared Sir. Another thing is that some people pay tithe personally to the minister, is it right?
Answer: If the church of God is one, then your payment of tithe is not limited to one place. Those that say you are a member of this church all your tithes must be in that church, have not understood the scripture well or else they are selfish people who are not interested in the general welfare of Christianity. HOREMOW does not have a Sunday morning service where people can gather on Sunday morning. It means you cannot give us money because you all have your churches. Then how do we serve you? How do we serve other people? How do we go to the world and save them because money answers all things; money is essential.
If the man over you as a pastor is a human being in your denominational church, is the one also coordinating the Holiness Revival Movement an angel? Does he have a stomach to eat food? Can he wear clothes too? If you feel that you wouldn’t give money here because your church says pay all the tithes here, how about this man that is coordinating HOREMOW? How does he eat? How does he dress? How does he go to headquarters and gather more information for you? How do we produce the material? That’s something you should understand.
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse that there may be food in My house. Is the house of God a building? Where two or three are gathered, there I am among them. So, the house of God is where people gather to do things that give glory to God. That saves humanity, that edifies mankind, that builds people, that overcomes the devil. Where people meet for fellowship. This is the house of God. Bring you, therefore, the tithes to this place so they can have enough. They cook for people to eat. They pay hotel bills for the ministers who preach to you.
Thought for the day: Do not forsake God’s house or His ministers.
Song for the day: Give, it shall be given unto you, good measure shaken together…
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 93-95; Romans 11:22-36
