Divine principles of prosperity and abundance – Part 7
If we obey God and follow His principles the following becomes our portion: “If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.
And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.
And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword.
And five of you shall chase a hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.
For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.
And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because of the new.
And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you.
And I will walk among you and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.
I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright” Leviticus 26:3-13.
It is God that will make you not any other thing; He told Abram “I will bless you…” It is God that will give us favour, honour, increase, protection etc. But if we, however, disobey His decrees, the reverse will be the case.
“And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of those stones; and he shall take other morter, and shall plaister the house” Leviticus 14-42.
I hope you are following the Bible teaching from the book of Leviticus 25. It will help you understand the mystery act call tithe. In Leviticus 27, the Lord said to Moses in verse 1 and after the secrets of lands and harvest, the Lord brought in a proviso, a caveat:
And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD, Leviticus 27:30.
A tithe of everything is the Lord’s portion and must be hallowed because it is holy. This the Lord did to show His presence in everything we have, to prove our trust and loyalty to Him. He said if perhaps for any reason you eat/spend the tithe, you must add five per cent interest on it as you come to redeem it.
“And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD” Leviticus 27:31-32.
