Discussion for Malachi 3:10

  • 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
  • Give to the poor, and not to the church alone. Give to the people who are in need... If your church is organizing outreach to the poor and needy, then you can entrust your resources to them, otherwise, give it to the poor personally. feed the hungry.
  • Tithe, is God 's command with promise and God is not mocked whatever a man soweth so he shall reap. Practically speaking I have experienced abundance through tithing, I have experienced good health without visiting hospitals for years via tithing, I have experienced peace of mind, success and answered prayers by obeying the Lord through tithing. I have also experienced the opposite by not obeying this principle, and this is because of fear of ability to meet up with other concerns that the Lord says we should cast unto Him for He cares for us all. In a nutshell, I have never seen a man that trade with the Lord and loose, God doesn 't owe us His desire is to meet all our needs according to His riches in glory, remember we are not talking of earthly reward alone, but heavenly treasures, domain where canker-worms, devourer and caterpillars, can 't reach. So I employ people to obey the Lord in everything, because He is the provider of what we possess and moreover we can 't hide anything from Him. Finally also bear in mind that the scripture also says faith without work is dead. The act of paying tithe is a progeny between faith and work -so pay the tithe.
  • Bernard Owusu for verse 10
    I really love his take on Tithes
  • why did GOD not just say " Give 10 of your money to the preachers? " why did GOD not say anything about money when talking about tithing? Please beloved of GOD reread your bibles and realize that tithing has to do with fruits of the land and herds of animals because they are GOD 's personal property... Today preachers are just self enriching themselves.
  • So why it doesn 't work? I was never as much poor and rejected than after I tried to tithe. If that verse worked, that will be known, and there will be no more poor people on the earth, but Jesus Himself said "For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good but me ye have not always. " Mark 14 7 So it seems that there are no solutions to the poverty. Malachi 3 10 is only false hope to poor peoples, because the church doesn 't do what he has to do "Neither was there any among them that lacked for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, and laid them down at the apostles ' feet and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. " Acts 4 34 35 So the thief is not the person who doesn 't tithe, but the church who doesn 't distribute...
