Building a Firm Foundation: Tithing, First Fruits First

Sunday September 25, 2011

Offering message: Heb. 5:5-11, Heb. 6:20, and Heb. 7:1-2. What do you give to your High Priest? First, you give the tithe, secondly your sacrifice of praise and worship (which reveals your heart), and thirdly your confession of sin (which cleanses you). Sermon message: Matt. 7:24-29 Build on the firm foundation. Matt. 6:33 Seek first the kingdom of God, then the rest will come. The tithe on your money is not yours, and Mal. 3:8-11 says that you have robbed God if you aren’t giving your tithes and offerings. Deut. 8:16-18 tells us that God gives us the power to get wealth. God’s covenant establishing power is subject to your wealth-gathering power. Prosperity is a spiritual tool to subject this world’s rulers to God. Finances in your hands are a tool.
