Wesley's Notes for Malachi 3:10


3:10 Bring ye - Make a punctual and full payment of all tithes; about this did Nehemiah contend with the rulers, and made them comply, and then all Judah obeyed and did the like, #Nehem 13:10 |- 13. To the store - house - This was one or more large rooms, built on purpose for this use. That there may be meat - For the priests and Levites to live upon. Prove me - Make the experiment. The windows of heaven - A kind of proverbial speech, to express great abundance. A blessing - First of rain to water the earth, next a blessing of corn, wine and oil, and all other products of the earth.

    Do as Zacchaeus; Luke19 Get to know the Lord better by reading your Bible an average of 5 days/week about 20 Min. Before you start reading, ask him to reveal himself to you You will know how much God really loves you, be healed and empowered to fulfill his purpose for your life - Philipians 2:13 . Meet at a church. Hebrew 10:25

    peter ndubusi the best place to start is to pray to God in the Name of Jesus to lead you and ask Him what you should do. Roman 3:23 tells us we all fall short of the Glory so nobody is perfect, As Christians we fall . we pray for forgiveness. we pray for strength to resist temptation we try to do what Jesus said and live by the ten commandments.Trust in God for everything Talk to God ,
