1 Beholde, I will send my messenger, and he shal prepare the way before mee: and the Lord whom ye seeke, shall suddenly come to his Temple: euen þe messenger of the Couenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.
5 And I will come neere to you to iudgement, and I will bee a swift witnesse against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppresse the hireling in his wages, the widowe, and the fatherlesse, and that turne aside the stranger from his right, and feare not me, saith the Lord of hosts.
7 ∂ Euen from the dayes of your fathers yee are gone away from mine ordinances, and haue not kept them: returne vnto me, and I will returne vnto you, saith the Lord of hosts: But ye said, Wherein shall we returne?
10 Bring ye all the tithes into the store-house, that there may be meate in mine house, & proue me now herewith, saith the Lord of hostes, if I will not open you the windowes of heauen, and powre you out a blessing, that there shall not be roome enough to receiue it.
16 ∂ Then they that feared the Lord, spake often one to another, and the Lord hearkened and heard it, & a booke of remembrance was written before him, for them that feared the Lord, & that thought vpon his name.

Coop's Malachi Chapter 3 comment about verse 8 on 5/03/2013, 4:15am...
i think titheing is giving ten percent. I never had done it before until a Christian friend and I had several conversations about it. I also talked to my pastor about it. He was very compassionate. I felt like I already had an understanding about what it meant but kept finding excuses to not give my ten. I was very poor at the time. That was my biggest excuse. I sometimes, even now-six years later, try to talk myself out of giving my tenth. But after I started doing it, everything changed for me. God made sure I had enough to go on, though my bank acct never really balanced. I can't explain it. He just took care of me. All this, even though my wife went from a $50,000/yr salary to nothing due to layoffs, economy, etc., and I went into ministry, and was being paid nothing. It is unbelievable, I know. God works miracles, folks. That's all I know.

Tithing is not something a Christian does in order to receive from God,it is something we do to prove our devotion and our sense of worshiping Him as our Almighty King. It is not referring to money by itself. Tithing includes our love, worship and service to Him.
Mark 12:17 states,And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. We are to render to both Caesar
and God but if there is a contradiction,God has supremacy in our lives and in our worship.

There are things that God has bound together. These cannot and should not be separated. The Lord has bound Faithful return of tithes and offering with (1) "open windows of heaven", (2) "poured out blessing", (3)"rebuke to the devourer", (4)" being called blessed" and and (5) "being a delightsome land", saith the LORD of hosts.
Mark's Malachi Chapter 3 comment about verse 8 on 4/17/2013, 7:22pm...
it is obvious to me they said and answered the question it was not god speaking after "In tithes and offerings" it was the priests and i come to this conclusion because god said "But ye say, In what have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings."
Jesus said well render unto god what is gods and he gave us free will to humble it back to him and life by faith that pleases him!

I now understand what it means to tithe by giving 10 percent.

We do not give because we have, But we have because we Give. Just as the scripture says "test me therefore, and see if I will not POUR YOU OUT a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it"
Evalena Latham's Malachi Chapter 3 comment about verse 10 on 2/05/2013, 11:53am...
Jesus Christ has now come and fulfilled the Mosaic Law. We now live under Grace. If we live under the Law, we have fallen from Grace. We now give as we purpose in our hearts. However, if we choose to live by the Law, we must keep the whole Law and not pick and choose the ones we like best.
Biodun Williams's Malachi Chapter 3 comment on 1/19/2013, 8:41am...
The gospel of our LORD Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first and also to the Greek, for therein the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written the just shall live by faith. When it refers to the just, that talks about those that have, genuinely and truly given their lives to Jesus Christ, so that He can become, their LORD and Saviour, Romans 1:16, 17. Interestingly, Paul the apostle was not ashamed of it, and hence, we should not be ashamed of it either. And therefore, with reference to the issue of payment of tithe and giving of offering, these are doctrines that the New Testament dispensation approves- and because it is in the Old Testament does not mean it should be discarded. The Word says: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes Him should not perish, but have eternal life, John 3:16. It also says: As many as received Him, He has then given the power to become sons of God, even those who believe in His name, John 1:12. When you believe the Word of God and diligently act upon it, the power of the Holy Spirit will comes upon you. Have you not heard it when it says: Seek ye First the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you? Matthew 6:33. God is the covenant keeping God, hence when Godís Word is received , believed and acted upon, based on the law of love, God has no option but to honour His part of the covenant. That means, when Godís dictates are put in place, all argument ceases and that is because of Godís integrity, and the infallibility of the Holy Writ.
