Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Malachi 3:6

3:6 I change not - I have an unchangeable hatred to sin: and my long suffering also changeth not, therefore you are not consumed in your sins. Not consumed - God is the same in his wisdom to order the rewards of good and bad in the fittest season, therefore neither the one nor the other are consumed, but preserved to the season appointed of God.

Discussion for Malachi 3

  • Galatians 2:20
    What carnal logic human can conclude determinately and cast hypocritical judgement on another?... tithe what you will to this world but it will not buy the next...amen

    In these wicked last days, verse 18 brings out how it will be plain to see the distinction between a righteous person and a wicked person.
  • Michael C.
    Talking about Tithing; Supporting the widow, and the orphan, is counted as tithing. Supporting the poor and the stranger is counted tithing. Supporting the "Levite" who is within your gates, is considered tithing. Tithing was done every three years; not every Sunday. Read the law! Collections were to be gathered for the poor Saints in Judea, the first of the week, so Paul could send by messengers.

    If you do not tithe you are disobeying God. If you are a real child of God with his Holy Spirit in you not tithing will make you live in fear and guilt. You will have no peace cos you are living in disobedience. Do I have a witness? If you agree with me you have the Spirit of God, please repent and trust him he won't fail. I have been there and hey teach your children tithing
  • Mark cent
    I so much beleive that the best one can do is to help the needy and the less privellaged,the idea of paying tithe is good but not when u do not know what the money is being used for,
    how can one pay tithe to a pastor that is riding on cars what 100ds of millions,or pastors that has private jets,
    i strongly disagree on tithe but i beleive in word of God.
    Tithe is for the farmers not money
  • Christina
    I believe tithing is 10% or more of anything, the Lord gives, wether it be ,
    Wisdom, money, food , helping hand, ANYTHING, giving unto the Lord, as he gave to you, without expecting anything in return.
