by CCSJ Admin
3rd day session of Bp. Geronimo at The Church of Saint Joseph:
We have heard from our parents that the best inheritance to their children is education. But this is only part of it. God should be King of our lives. We should seek Him first.
The importance of tithes. Tithes are a tenth of the increase. increase comes from: the salary; part-time job, stock dividends; passive income; family allocation from govt.; pensions; sales, etc.
Malachi 3:8-9 will a man rob God, We have robbed Him in tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse for you have robbed God.
We must be begin to act on God’s Word. We must choose life. This means that we must get away from the old life, from the cursed life- for God has already redeemed us from the curse.
Verse 10- Bring all the tithes into the storehouse that there may be food in My house.
Man has a tendency to look into his balance sheet most of the time and this hinders him from giving his tithes. But it shouldn’t be this way.
When we honor the Lord with our tithes, we will have food. God will pour forth His blessings.
There will be times of testing- but we should stand in His Word. If we continue to stand, we will indeed reap the benefits.
Verse 11- God will rebuke the devourer from our midst.
Verse 12- and all nations shall call us blessed.
Zecheriah 9 exhorts us to return to the stronghold and He will restore double to us.
We should not be afraid of opposition, of persecution. We should not retaliate for God will be on our side when we honor Him.
