You have just taken a step that is going to radically and completely change your life ... forever! You have taken the first step towards "sowing life" into our church, and into our ministry by giving of your finances, by giving of your time in prayer, and by getting involved ... in the ministry that God has placed into our trust!
In Malachi chapter 3, the Bible tells us that the reason financial problems are a part of our daily life is because we aren't tithing, and because we aren't giving ... but it also says that it's because of what we are "saying" ... with our mouths! You see, it's not enough to "tithe" into your local church (where you attend and get fed), but you also have to "give", or make "offerings" into other ministries and works of God. These things open up the windows of heaven for you!
The book of Malachi also tells us, though, that the children of Israel were complaining that is was a "vein thing to serve God" because though they were serving God they were not prospering, financially. If you'll read on you'll find that God says it's because they were "murmering" ... they were grumbling about God and saying that "it doesn't work"! Folks, if you're going to give into this ministry, don't bring your doubt and unbelief with you - WE DON'T WANT IT! There is a "curse" that comes with that unbelief, and it's call "lack"! You need to purpose in your heart that you are going to praise God and worship God, and be "thankful" for anything and everything that He sends your way!
You need to know that God wants to bless you ... He literally WANTS YOU TO BE PROSPEROUS!
But you have also got to know that there is an enemy that does NOT want you to prosper! The devil wants you to fail, and fail miserably, at finances! But he doesn't have to be the final word in your finances, if you'll do 3 things that will change your life - financially! Just 3 things, and as the effects of these changes begin to take place in your life, you are going to see a change in financial blessings ... and the "favor of the Lord" will come upon you ...
Three Keys To Your Financial Success!
First, you have to commit to tithing! (10% - tithes)
This is a "NO OPTION" choice ... We are "commanded" to bring the whole tithe into the storehouse.
Tithes means 10% ... I've been asked, "Do I give 10% off of the gross or the net?" When I asked God about this He laughed and said, "Which would you prefer, gross or net blessings?" The answer was simple. Tithe on it all!
Second, you have to start giving regularly! (over the 10% - offerings)
This is one of the two reasons God gave the house of Israel as a reason for their lack. He said they had robbed Him in "tithes" and "offerings"! Offerings is "giving". So, find a ministry, or ministries, and get involved in sowing into them, regularly. We have several ministries that we are affiliated with. They are excellent soil to get involved with! Set up a monthly, automatic allotment, that will give into the ministries that you decide to support. I can tell you from experience, there is nothing like "regular consistent" giving to make our job in ministry easier!
Third, you have to watch your words! (this is the "ON/OFF" switch)
Your words are like the rudder of a ship. When you speak, you "turn" this rudder in a particular direction. If you've ever studied sailing you know that when you turn the rudder, you don't usually see immediate results. The larger the ship, the longer the delay in seeing the results. Nonetheless, when you turn that rudder, something is already happening! The ship is beginning to turn. If you'll be patient, you will eventually begin to see what has already been happening below ... the ship will begin to turn!
The same is in your life. God told the house of Israel that they were grumbling and complaining, and saying that is was not profitable to serve God! He said there "words are stout against Me". Simply put, they were NOT speaking in line with God's promises, but rather saying what already "appeared" to be happening in their lives. As a result, God could not move on their behalf. Their "words" took away His permission to be a part of their finances and financial blessing in their lives!
So think of your mouth as a "switch". You speak against God's blessings, you turn "OFF" the flow. You speak in harmony with what God has promised in your life, and you turn the flow back "ON". Your "tongue" is the rudder, and directs the degree of your blessing, and how much you are willing to receive in your life, financially!
his is a "NO OPTION" choice ... We are "commanded" to bring the whole tithe into the storehouse.
2010 - The Year We Make Contact!!
In January, 2010, we are moving into full-swing, establishing the vision and calling that God has entrusted us with ...
Finances and funding play a major part in being able to move when God says to "move". Your help in that area, with your consistent and regular giving, makes it possible for us to plan, and project more accurately. We do need you!
This new year will be the "new beginning" of our ministry's local church meetings, and can also be a new beginning for your financial breakthrough ... if you are willing and committed to success with God, in finances, then you are ready to move forward with other things as well. In this ministry, we are committed to helping you grow and mature as a Believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. It's not enough to just love on Him. He wants you to "grow up" to a mature man (or woman) in faith, and to be able to apply the "Word" that He has worked so hard to make available to you. GOD wants to see you develop into a powerful, prosperous, and productive member of the Body of Christ. And that is going to come through study of His Word.
After you set up your financial giving, please make sure and sign up for our newsletters. Find the ones you are interested in becoming involved in. We try to keep them brief and to the point, but we do use these to get out the word of what we're doing. We also use these to communicate new services and features available to you, as a partner with our ministry.
Thank you again for becoming a part of this ministry.
Please, don't let financial giving be the only way you play a role. We also need your prayer support! Prayer opens up doors that otherwise might remain closed. Keep us in your prayers! Stay in touch with us. We want to hear what God is doing in your life, and what we can do to help.
