Overwhelmed by unexplainable hardships?
You are likely neglecting sins that come from bad teaching and
MYTHS like ‘No Christian can rob God of tithes or offerings’
Have you given more than a few hundred dollars to a church or ministry?
Or do you handle large amounts of money for a church or ministry?
Then it’s almost definite that curses or hardships you and your family suffer from are from robbing God of tithes and offerings.
DID GOD SAY FOR NO REASON? "You are under a curse - your whole nation -
because you are robbing Me [of tithes and offerings].” (Malachi 3:9)
Malachi 3:9 does NOT apply only to Jews as many think, but refers to the Christian Age, because it falls in between John the Baptist coming in Malachi 3:1 and Christ returning in Malachi 4:5-6, so may you consider this sin of robbing God seriously as a reason you have sufferings that cannot be explained from any other sin.
May you do what is needed to reconcile with God and come out of curses from robbing Him. It is for reason you and your family suffer from loss, illness, & tragedy because,
"Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse
[judgment for sin] does not come to rest." (Proverbs 26:2)
If you respect God and His kingdom, and wish to come out of curses from robbing Him, then may you pay Him back by giving to His servants who know how to handle the curses coming from mishandling holy money, for holy is what God calls His tithe - it is His sacred portion (Deuteronomy 26:13)
. So truly, it’s for good reason the Lord says His people rob Him.
But in Malachi 3, God says He is robbed of BOTH
offerings (Malachi 3:8)
, so all money given to God or specific ministry purposes must be treated with more care than the church commonly understands. If you do not want to continue letting God be robbed and be accused of it, then please take care to give to His servants who know how to safeguard the integrity of holy money.
And if you steward the Lord’s money, then please contact us for instruction.
If you scoff at this information because you don't think you or the church have curses from robbing God, then look at God's proof for true sins which do include mishandling God's money (see God's Proof For Sin in 383 for details)
. Also understand that being saved in Christ does NOT
negate the consequences of sin in this life. The New Covenant negates the penalty of sin for the next
life - we get into heaven despite the wrongs we've done - Grace in Christ never took away penalties in this life for sin.
Also know that God is slow to anger (Exodus 34:6; Numbers 14:18; Nehemiah 9:17; Psalm 86:15, 103:8, 145:8; Joel 2:13; Jonah 4:2; Nahum 1:3). This does NOT mean He will leave sin unjudged, but means He will let people sin over long periods of time before bringing judgment on them.
These points are major reasons why more severe curses, like crippling illness and tragedy, afflict older people. It is not simply because of old age, but because sin has built up over time and judgment comes in the form of curses later in life.
So remember again, being saved in Christ does not negate the consequences of sin in this life. God's infinite grace in the New Covenant atones for our sins for the next life, so that none of our sins keep us out of heaven so long as we maintain public loyalty and faith in Yeshua (Jesus) until the moment of death -- that is God's great free gift of grace in Christ. It is not based on any other works of righteousness (such as leaving sin or doing good), so that no one can boast in themselves (Ephesians 2;8-9).
May you not be like those who don't believe and let sin overtake you later, but take care of it now. The prudent sees evil and avoids it, but the naive go on doing wrong and are punished for it. The reward of humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, honor, and life (Proverbs 22:3-4).
Be much blessed through it in the name of Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus). Amen.
