Malachi 3: 10
There are a number of other principles that businessmen need to know and employ. Tithing is one such principle.
‘Tithe’ means ‘one-tenth of one’s income or produce’.
God has promised that in paying our Tithes, by doing that one thing for Him, He will do seven for us in return – He asks us to prove Him. He said:
1. “I will open the windows of heaven …”
What this means is that the Lord will give us New Businesses, New Investments,
New Ideas and Initiatives to present, New Products on the Market and the Best Quality Staff to enable and enhance your vision.
2. “I will pour out for you a blessing …!”
This means God’s power to produce in every area of your life. It also means Health, Wisdom, Knowledge and Interest on your Investment. (NB The word ‘Blessing’ comes from the Hebrew word ‘Barak’)
3. “There shall be no room enough to receive …”
This simply means expansion in every area!
4. “I will rebuke the Devourer for your sakes …”
Who is the Devourer? The Devourer is the devil and what this statement means is that God will prevent loss by theft, fraud, sabotage, industrial action, and setbacks in Strategic Planning. He will ensure that everything is insured by Him. You will not make a loss; you will achieve your monthly budget and earn profits. You will have a good family life! He will protect you from accidents. You will have job security and good health. You will also benefit from high staff morale levels. Only God can protect you from the Devourer! (John 10: 10)
5. “Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field …”
It does not matter what business you are in, He will prevent the devil from messing up your business – whether he attacks through witchcraft and other setbacks, which are designed to (and can) destroy your business.
6. He will deal with your vine, the very source.
He will ensure that your crop will not be dumped before the opportune time to
7. “…All nations will call you blessed …”
You want to be well thought of in your land and your job. You want the promotion. God will promote you and establish your reputation.
Once you are not paying your Tithes – whether you are a Christian or not, there is no guarantee that the benefits and blessings of the Lord will be yours.
Obedience Is Key!
We must recognize that all visions are given by God, and it is He who gives us the power to get wealth (Deuteronomy 8: 17 – 18). By excluding Biblical Principles, it will not be long before you are totally destroyed by the Devourer!
