Tithing has become a major topic of discussion in the world today among Christians and even unbelievers. Many pastors have tenaciously held on to the opinion that it is a basis for God's blessing and that it is a law that transcend beyond the mosaic covenant.
While tithing is indisputably not outlawed by the doctrines of Christ in the new testament, there are some weightier matters that can breed curses and blessings.
One may begin to wonder why some men of God these days lay so much emphasis on tithe rather than the other instructions of God that makes for undenied, proof guaranteed wealth.
If you check all the great and rich men of God today, you will find these other principles made them rich and not just tithe.
Honour to biological parents
The first commandment of God with a promise is "honor your father and your mother. Exodus 20:12
Ephesians 6:2-3 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
Sadly enough many pastors have also used this to refer to spiritual parents, neglecting the biological parents and even making many call their parents witches and wizards.
Jesus said, Luke 11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Mark 7:10-13 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
From scriptures, we see that the blessing is trans generational, it passes from parents to children. Ask Abraham, ask Isaac and Jacob. Even ask David and Solomon. If you neglect your parents, you cannot be blessed. Infact you are already cursed.
Study of Gods word
The blessings and prosperity of God is tied to the level of word insight you have. If you neglect knowledge and wisdom of God, you are already cursed. Hosea 4:6, tells us that we ought to operates as Gods, but for lack of knowledge, we die as ordinary men. Gods word opens you up to practical wealth principles through physical identification of opportunities and investments.
Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Deuteronomy 28:1-2 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
