TEXT: MALACHI 3:8-10
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.
10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive
Key verse: Hebrews 12:29 “For our God is a consuming fire.”
IJesus took seven Colombian youths to hell to see the tortures of hell fire. They saw Christians, who did not give tithes and offering to God, passing through great torments. Here is their account: "We saw thousands and thousands of people in torments; young people, adults and elderly people. We arrived in a place that looked like a big swimming pool of fire, with thousands of men and women inside. Each had a metal plate on the chest that read: 'I am here for not giving tithes and offerings.' I asked the Lord, 'Lord, how can this be possible, that people are here for this reason?' The Lord responded, 'Yes, because these people thought that tithes and offerings were not important, when My word shows it as a command. When people withhold their tithes, they hinder My work and the gospel is not preached. People here suffered a thousand times worse than others because they knew the word but disobeyed it.
Divine Revelation of Hell Fire to Emmanuel Angyarko:
Jesus Christ took him to hell and he saw defaulters of tithes and offerings passing through the judgment of God. Here is his account: 'I saw four pastors in hell, who were there because they did not pay their tithes. One was called Albert and another was Daniel, a pastor of Church of Christ; this church does not believe in tithing. Daniel said he told his congregation not to pay tithes as it was no longer necessary. He was in hell for basically two things: first of all, he was not paying tithes himself and secondly, because he also stopped others from paying it. For Albert, his church believed in paying tithes, but he thought it was meant for only the congregation and that pastors were excluded from paying tithes. He wished he could come back to earth to start all over again to pay his tithes. The other two pastors also did not pay their tithes. One of them simply said that he did not think he had to pay tithes, even though he knew he should be paying his tithes. The other one said he thought ministering before God is not working, so there was no need to pay any tithes.
Thought for the day: It is time to bless God with our tithes and offering.
Song for the day: Remember me O Lord, remember me in Your kingdom.
Bible reading for the day; Psalm 132 -135;1 Corinthian 8
