Deuteronomy 29:9 “Carefully follow the terms of this covenant, so that you may prosper in everything you do.”
The Scene: Stalks of freshly hand-cut wheat, representing God’s provision.
Just as in the Old Covenant, God is faithful to those who believe and heed His Word, just as in Moses’ day. At the harvest time a “first fruits” offering was given, a tithe–10%– as commanded by the Lord, thus insuring God’s promise of abundance in the next growing season.
Psalm 147:14 “He grants peace to your borders and satisfies you with the finest of wheat.”
Today, Jesus tells us that when we give to those in need, according to His Word, He can and will bless us. Christians need to be led of the Holy Spirit in giving tithes and offerings, as well as in giving gifts to others.
Malachi 3:10 ” ‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty,’ and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.'”
