Hello Reader, I Believe It Is Very Important Not Steal From Anybody, But Can You Believe There Are Many Who Don’t Steal From People Yet Rob God!
“For I am the LORD, I do not change; therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob. Yet from the days of your fathers you have gone away from My ordinances and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord of hosts. “But you said, ‘In what way shall we return?’ “Will man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, for you have robbed Me, even this whole nation. Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.” Malachi 3.6-10 NKJV
So we can see from these bible verses that God doesn’t change, so the children of Israel, even the believers and Christians of nowadays have no right blaming God for their financial difficulty. The reality is that we change and because of this, we lose out on God’s blessing, protection, provision etc… As long as we are faithful to God and serve Him faithfully with quality, out financial life specifically will have quality.
Unfortunately due to the many distraction of this world, back then during the time of the prophet Malachi and even today, many choose to stop following the commandments of God. Every company, every institution and every nation has statutes to keep their standards. And these laws must be respected. Failure to follow them will bring drastic consequences to their offenders. God is no different. There are statutes that have to be kept and those who stray from them will suffer consequences.
God said, “Return to Me, and I will return to you.” & they replied,
“BUT IN WHAT WAY shall I return?” meaning the people believed they were doing everything that needed to be done.
Then God answered this question with: “Will man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me!
“IN WHAT WAY have we robbed You?”
“In tithes and offerings.”
How can a righteous person accept the fact that they are stealing from someone, especially from God? This is why curses were part of their lives. Curses come from disobedience, but our God blesses everyone.
God asks the people to bring their tithes and offerings, and suggests them to try Him. Nowhere else does God invite people to try Him, except when it comes to tithes and offerings.
To those who try Him, He promises to open the windows of heaven and pour out blessings beyond measure. It would be one thing to receive blessings that can be measured, but it’s to receive blessings that are beyond measure, and such is His greatness.
He rebukes the devourer Himself. This is so strong that God Himself says to the devil: “I rebuke you because this person serves Me!”
The rest is pretty self explanatory, those who are part of this holy nation, people that exclusively belong to God, must be considered happy by all. The land of this nation has to be different – a delightful land.
