Wesley's Notes for Malachi 3:11


3:11 The devourer - All kind of devourers, the locusts, the canker - worm, and the caterpillar, which though they are in incredible multitudes, yet a rebuke from God will check them all at once, as if they were but one. For your sakes - For your good. Your vine - Your vine shall carry their fruit 'till they are fully ripe.

    AMEN! PASTORS PUT SUCH A GUILT TRIP ON THE MEMBERS THAT HAVE SO CLOSE TO NOTHING TO BEGIN WITH.IT DETERS MANY AWAY FROM THE CHURCH.
  • I Strongly Believe That That The Word Of God Can Not Lie It Is True And Lives Till Date And The Word Of God Can Only Work For You When You Believe In It It Yar By Faith That Abraham Recieved Isaac As A Promised Son And After All The Bible Says That God Is Not A Man That He Should Lie Or Change His Mind God Will Always Look Forward To FullFilling His Promises And If He Dose Not Then It Would Make No Sense At All As The Bible Says Lets Trust The Lord With All Our Heart And We Should Lean On Our Own Understanding So Lets Be A Generation Of Faith And Stop Debating The Word Of God Instead Lets Live By The Word Of God God Bless You All In Jesus Name
  • MockingBird for verse 10
    The tithe : 10th belongs to God the Storehouse is the Church where you have been called to go. If the people that are in charge of the finances are doing wrong : then take with you 2 or 3 and confront those people : Pastor goes also and ask for a record of the finances : If you are not paying your part to God then you have no right to do this : A steward must give account of where his stewardship is producing : And yes : We are Blessed when we give back to God what is due Him : More Blessed when we give above : First 10th : Then in food , clothing : And so on : Time : Talents : God has a standard order of doing things :
