 There are seven practical actions that will lead you to kingdom prosperity: giving, working, thinking, trusting, waiting, talking and thanking. Tithing opens you up to receive kingdom prosperity. It is your covenant connector.

 


 
  1. In the kingdom of God, prosperity is determined by how much you give; in the world, it is determined by what you have.

    1. God will prosper you in a way that is different from how the world prospers you. 

    2. Free yourself from the fear of giving.

      1. Do all things in God, not in or by yourself. 

    3. Giving is living.

      1. Give to live and live to give. 

      2. A lack of giving leads to “spiritual constipation.” You can’t just take and not give. 

       

    4. God’s Word has four dimensions: principle, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16-17). 

    5. Many enjoy the principles, such as “If you do this, then you’ll receive this.” But most don’t gravitate toward instruction; therefore, they miss out on much of what God desires to give and do for them. 

  2. There is a law in the school of prosperity: Acquaint yourself with God, and good will come to you (Job 22:21).

    1. Agree with God; conform to and acquaint yourself with Him.
    2. Seek the Provider, not His provision.
    3. You were created to seek God.
  3. Tithing is the first dimension of giving (Malachi 3:10-12).

    1. Tithing is a commandment.

      1. God’s commandments give you access to His kingdom.
    2. Tithing opens the windows to the blessing (empowerment to prosper); it causes God to rebuke the Devourer (Satan) and keep him from destroying your life.
      1. Tithing opens your life to wisdom.
      2. Tithers have a right to the promises of God.

       

    3. Tithing is the master key to financial miracles.
      1. It is an inescapable covenant obligation.

       

    4. When you don’t tithe, you are cursed (Malachi 3:8-9).
      1. Anyone who despises tithing opens himself up to poverty, lack and want.
      2. Your lack of tithing blocks the blessing.

       

    5. A curse cannot come without a cause (Proverbs 26:2).
      1. Accept responsibility for the curses in your life.

       

    6. Your offerings cannot be accepted until you have tithed. 

  4. Tithing is not just a money issue; it is a covenant issue.
    1. Tithing is the covenant connector.
    2. Tithing existed before the law of Moses (Genesis 14:20).
    3. Jacob tithed to God (Genesis 28:22).
    4. The tithe is a “tenth of your increase” (gross income).
    5. Get rid of the notion that tithing is an Old Testament issue.
      1. Jesus encouraged tithing (Matthew 23:23).
    6. The tithe belongs to God, and it is holy (Leviticus 27:30).
  5. God made a covenant to bless man (Genesis 12:1-3).
    1. The blessing is an empowerment to establish God’s covenant in the earth (Deuteronomy 8:18).
    2. Abraham’s descendents are supposed to tithe.
      1. Your children and grandchildren will be blessed when you tithe.
      2. The lesser is blessed by the better.
    3. Abraham connected to the covenant by tithing to the High Priest, Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18-23; Hebrews 7:1-28).
      1. A covenant exchange took place.
    4. Jesus is our High Priest after the order of Melchizedek (Hebrews 6:20).
      1. We tithe to the ultimate High Priest—Jesus—and He blesses us.
      2. Christ’s priesthood is superior (Hebrews 7:16-28, AMP).
    5. Tithe the tithe (pray and confess scriptures over it) and thank God for your deliverance (Deuteronomy 26).
