The Spirit of the Tithe that Makes the Difference in Catching the Vision of Giving

~ROliverLuce | 02-02-16

Question:
Why is it God’s people only get excited towards ‘giving’ and ‘tithing’ when they are whipped into an emotional type frenzy.

What seems to be the usual, is that well-meaning pastors usually believe in whipping up emotions that are always seemingly from the Holy Spirit. These pastors would do this by simply emphasizing, too much so, the promises of tithing and giving in their church bodies for the cause to have their members give into the work of the Lord, their churches. This seems to happen worldwide and especially in American churches and fellowships today?

Answer:
What are we missing when ‘giving’ and ‘tithing’ are only brought up in this particular way in emphasizing the so-called emotional Holy Spirit to move us to give without knowing the Lord and His love and grace?

Instead are we missing the real motivation and how to give from a generous and gracious heart that our God would inspire into our hearts for real action from the Spirit?

We must be motivated by the Word that is the real motivational factor here. This also means the leaders of every church must be walking in obedience and be true prayer warriors for their members who they watch over.

Us believers who follow Yeshua are liable to be destroyed from a lack of vision from not knowing the Word of Truth, the Word of Wisdom, the Word of God! We are destroyed by not being taught the Word, how to intercede in prayer, and how to walk out our salvation from the Word daily.

Finally:
Thus, if our motivation isn’t to JUST GET BACK BLESSINGS when we give then what shall we say?

Then we can say this: The “give and it shall be given to you” PRINCIPLE is to be our REWARD and not our MOTIVATION then. But in order to do this without doing it from the flesh is to SEEK THE KINGDOM FIRST and all these things that you need will FOLLOW! We do well to remember Luke 6.38 is not the motivation but only the reward of obedience and trust. We must keep our focus always on HIM even when we are poor or rich because HE will always meet our needs.

We also are reminded that the TITHE belongs to God and that everything we have and ourselves belong to God as well. To give back a tenth is to realize we are allowing God to bless the rest (the nine tenths).

Our God wants us to catch the vision of giving and NOT the vision of getting. And without the Word of God’s inspiration of The Holy Spirit, we will not GET IT.

Without the power of the Word and the Holy Spirit, we will not have the natural spiritual inclination and power to be at rest and not fearing for our needs. He will take care of us if we trust! Trust!! And this is our attitude: Deuteronomy 15:10. And attitudes are very spiritual if some of us haven’t noticed that yet. The physical can never be divorced from the spiritual.

God is Only a God of Righteousness & Justice; He Is Not The Author of Evil

~@ROliverLuce | 06-22-15

(^1) There are those who question whether God who is the God of creation creates darkness and woe! Isaiah 45:7 and 8 {CJB version}

Isa.45:7 “I form light, I create darkness; I make well-being, I create woe; I, ADONAI, do all these things. (NT) (Kindle Locations 19679-19686).”

(^2) True, but read on further…
Isa.45:8 “Heavens above, rain down justice; let the clouds pour it down. Let the earth open, so that salvation springs up, and justice sprouts with it. I, ADONAI, have created it.” (NT) (Kindle Locations 19679-19686).

And …

(^3) What’s more! Our God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob is …
Deuteronomy 32:4 The Rock! His work is perfect, for all his ways are just. A trustworthy God who does no wrong, he is righteous and straight. (Kindle Locations 9779-9781).

(^4) And here is HOW God created darkness which is not EVIL nor is it SIN that God was creating! HE is a wonderful God who CHANGES NOT!
Genesis 1:3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
Genesis 1:4 God saw that the light was good, and God divided the light from the darkness.
Genesis 1:5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. So there was evening, and there was morning, one day.
(Kindle Locations 1410-1413).

(^5) As for the Woe:
Finally as for God creating “Woe” He is after all a God of justice who repays those who refuses the Law of Sin and Death. For God will not allow sin to go unpunished.

(^6) Now let’s deal with the question why did God create Satan (other names) knowing Satan would fall since God is “omniscient” knowing all things: Job 37:16; Psalm 139:2–4, 147:5; Proverbs 5:21; Isaiah 46:9-10; and even in the B’rit Hadashah> 1John 3:19–20.
Now for a great quote: “First, we should understand that knowing Satan would rebel is not the same thing as making[/creating] Satan [to] rebel.”

God did not create Lucifer [as an evil being] (the devil); God created him good as noted in Genesis 1:31 as to “everything.”
As we all know, when God says “everything” He does means “everything” when He is creating! 🙂

And as we all know from Isaiah 14:13,14 Satan chose to be evil that did become a tool for God to raise a harvest of inheritors of the Kingdom of God to those whosoever will choose to accept His COVENANT of love and salvation from their sinful corruptible flesh egged on by Satan to tabernacle with God for eternity!

He is our creator, our Father, and He deserves our respect as like unto a loving Father who LOVES US! And our loving Father spoke a WORD that He will never rescind!!
