The world has no idea just how important Christ’s body is to them. They think church folks are weak and have an illusion of some mystical relationship with God. They openly criticize what they don’t understand and they are not shy about it. They don’t realize what they have but they will miss the Christians after they are taken out. But what about now? What is the connection between the church of Jesus Christ and the heathen world?
Genesis 12:1-3 Now the Lord said unto Abram, leave your father’s house and I will bless you and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.
All the families. Makes no exceptions when Abram obeyed, God would bless the entire world. Abram left his father’s house and became a “mobile nation.” He had three hundred and eighteen servants, flocks, herds, camels, silver and gold. When Abram came to a city he would have a major impact on the economy. When a man had camels they were the world’s first “freight company.” Abram bought and sold. He could supply most cities with the goods they needed.
Genesis 14:20 ...and Abram gave tithes of all he had…
Tithing did not originate with the Mosaic law, it really began in the garden of Eden. Abram said that no man would make him rich, but his God would. All the families in the world were blessed by Abram and all his wealth. Several times now I heard Kenneth Copeland make this statement:
The world economy is in a mess because God’s people are not tithing.
A recent study showed that less than seven percent of the Christians pay their tithes. If all the believers would give God His tithes we could bless all the families of the earth. The church should be in charge of the welfare system, not the government. The government has poured trillions of dollars into entitlements, but the people are not better off.
Ecclesiastes 9:16 ...the poor man’s wisdom is despised and his words are not heard.
Most churches are struggling financially. They do not have a voice the world is interested in. The ministers that are thriving are despised. Folks think all churches should be poor. Most folks ignore the poor, they have nothing to offer that they can’t borrow and get for themselves.
Malachi 3:10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse and I will open over you the windows of Heaven and pour you out the blessing you won’t have room for all of it.
If God’s people will tithe, they will have enough to operate all ministries and enough to bless all the families of the earth. Early on in our ministry we began to tithe and God blessed us. We built everything debt-free. We don’t have any money dedicated to a mortgage. We are in a position to be a blessing. We can offer the world blessings the world can never offer. If your not a tither, repent and give God His due. You will love living under an open Heaven.
The best gift I can give to a brother is to forgive them.
If I sow forgiveness,
I will reap mercy.
I have power to get wealth
and It’s all in my willingness to give.
My giving is my seed
and my reaping is my prosperity.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
