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.

    Hi Ann; You have sure got that right! But you know? Birds of a feather flock together! How is it that some of us can feel it immediately and are totally convicted to Run for our lives whenever we get around those kinds? while others don't seem to care a thing for ANYTHING that you're talking about! God separates His own from those who are NOT! The times are made by the kind of people of that time.
  • Ann
    Not all who are teaching or preaching and not all who prophecy, are called to do so by God.
    I do believe whomever God calls to do his work, He will be provided for.
    A lot of these pastors are taxing their congregation to meet personal needs and the needs of the church building. They are not helping the orphan, the captive, the widow, the fatherless, etc.
    for some self ordained church=quick money

    Linus; This is one of the most misused Scriptures in the church world today: "Take heed, and beware of covetousness; for a man's life consists not in the abundance of things he possesses." It would be better to take the position Paul took, and rather work for one's living! 1 Cor. 9:12 "..Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ."

    MALACHI CHPT 3 VER 10 TO 11
    Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

    11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither

    Unfortunately, many of the brethren today misunderstand his rebuke. To help you understand, Malachi was not addressing the Christians of today. He was rebuking the House of Israel in his generation for not honoring God's Law. The law of tithing in Malachi's day was sacrificing 10% of their increase,(animals, money, herds and flocks) to be given in support of the families of Aaron and Levi.

    Hello Saints,

    I know church folks, who never pay tithes. I wonder what happens to people who go on home to heaven, who never paid tithes? Do you think their may be some laundry to do in heaven?
