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 it.
Key verse: Isaiah 1:19
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.
Jesus took Angelica Zambrano to hell fire, and she saw torments of tithe defaulters. Here is her account: We went down among flames, and I heard the screams of millions of people. I heard someone saying, “I ask for Your forgiveness now, Lord, because I have stolen from You. Forgive me for stealing. I stole from You, Lord, and I do not want to do it again.” I asked, 'Lord, who is he and why does he say he stole from You?' 'My child I will show you who he is.' We entered his cell and I saw a disfigured man that was being tormented. All the people in hell have plates on their chests and 666 on their foreheads. This man extended his hand and said, 'Lord forgive me.' I asked, 'Why are you here, why are you asking for forgiveness from the Lord, why? You say you have stolen from God, but nobody can steal from God? This is impossible, why do you say you have stolen from Him?'
He replied, I will tell you my story. I was a Christian leader. For 20 years I had known Christ but during the 20 years I said: All the money from my tithes and offerings were just going to sustain the pastors but I regret it because I now know that it wasn't for them; it was for the Lord and that is why I say I have stolen from God. At this very moment there are many people on Earth that are robbing the Lord like I did. When you return to Earth, tell all those people who don 't want to give their tithes and offerings, not to steal from the Lord, otherwise, they'll wind up in hell. No thief will enter the kingdom of heaven. I knew the holy word, but now I regret that I robbed the Lord. Tell the people that when they give to God, they should give with true love.' This man kept pleading, 'Lord, forgive Me.' But the Lord replied, “It is too late. There is no opportunity for you.” I asked the man, 'But why did you rob God, why? You knew very well we cannot steal God's tithes and offerings. 'He answered, 'Yes, I knew very well, but never did follow it. I never did because I was a very proud man.’ Don't ever steal from the Lord. Give your tithes and offerings to God because what we give the Lord is not for men.
Thought for the day: What we give to God with all our heart is for the King of kings.
Song for the day: The cry you will cry, when the saints have gone home, cry it now…
Bible reading for the day: Hosea 12-14; Revelation 3
