Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the first and best part of all your income. Proverbs 3:9 (GWT)
Tithing (paying the tenth) is how you honor the Lord with your wealth and the first and best part of your income. The Tithe is an idea from the Mind of God, the Great I AM! Tithing in line with the scriptures will make you rich.
What is a tithe? The word tithe means a tenth. To tithe is to return 10 percent of all we receive to the person, place or institution where we have received spiritual food.
After the biblical Jacob took the birthright from his older brother Esau, he was forced to leave home. God made him a promise of prosperity and success similar to the rich promises He had made earlier to Jacob’s father Isaac and his grandfather Abraham. In return for these rich promises, Jacob made a success covenant with God, which had two parts: what he desired of God and what he would do for God, which was to tithe. As a result God made him rich! A Covenant is a solemn agreement between two people, to do specific things and to achieve specific results.
“If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, then Jehovah will be my God… Of all that Thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto Thee” (Genesis 28:20-22).
“I AM A TITHE PARTNER WITH ATLANTA NEW THOUGHT. I AM PUTTING MY TRUST IN GOD FOR MY SUPPLY. I AM NOT DEPENDING ON PERSONS OR CONDITIONS FOR MY PROSPERITY. GOD IS THE SOURCE OF MY SUPPLY AND MY UNLIMITED ABUNDANCE OF EVERYTHING NOW. I PUT GOD FIRST FINANCIALLY! I TITHE MY WAY TO PROSPERITY! I ATTRACT THE WEALTH OF THE WORLD!”
