There has been an alarming and disturbing trend in recent days. Since Obama was re-elected on November 6th, tithes and offerings to this ministry have plunged. Now I know that many of you are disappointed, and I know many are concerned about the future. I know many of you are looking for areas in your budget to cut back.
I want to emphasize to you that prosperity does not result from withholding tithes and offerings. To the contrary the Scripture says:
8 Will a man rob Elohim? Yet you rob Me. But you say: 'Wherein have we robbed You?' In tithes and heave-offerings.
9 You are cursed with the curse, yet you rob Me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring you the whole tithe into the store-house, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now herewith, says YHWH Tzva’ot, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall be more than sufficiency.
(Malchi 3:1-10 HRV)
The fact is that as tithes and offerings have plummeted since Obama's re-election, the WNAE store-house has depleted and become empty!
Things have become so bad, that I have gone unpaid. We recently had to borrow money from a friend just to get by. Last week we had to repair the brakes on our car. We actually spent the last of our money today on Macc and Cheese for dinner. My wife (who is disabled and has a neurological disorder) has an appointment to see her neurologist tomorrow because her symptoms have gotten worse. She had to wait several weeks for this appointment, but if donations do not come in by tomorrow, we will not have the gas to take her, and she will have to reschedule (taking several more weeks to get in). On top of all of this I am having to personally write a "brief" due on Monday in our case to save our home from a fraudulent foreclosure, because we cannot afford an attorney.
Am I not "a workman worthy of his wage"? (Matt. 10:10; 1Tim. 5:18)
The Scriptures tell us that when we withhold tithes and offerings, we "oppress the hireling in his wages" (Mal. 3:5, 8-10)
Is this work worthy of your support?
What other ministry provides this kind of teaching? What other ministry is doing this kind of work?
In the Wisdom of Ben Sira we read:
In a generous spirit pay homage to YHWH,
Spare not freewill gifts.
With each contribution show a cheerful countenance,
and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy.
Give to Elyon as he has given you,
generously, according to your means.
For YHWH always repays,
and he will give back to you sevenfold.
(Sira 35:8-10 HRV)
Don't believe me, believe your Scriptures, believe Elohim!
