THE TITHE IS KINGDOM COMPREHENSIVE INSURANCE POLICY THAT PROTECTS MAN’S EFFORT AND INVESTMENTS

YOU CAN USE YOUR TITHING TO CLAIM YOUR HEALTH; YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO WASTE MONEY ON WHAT PEOPLE WASTE MONEY ON.

The tithe is Kingdom comprehensive insurance policy that protects man’s effort and investments (Malachi 3:10-11). Listen; the wealth of a non-tither can never be guaranteed. The future of the non-tither can never be guaranteed. If you don’t pay it to God, you will pay it somewhere.

Do you know comprehensive insurance policy? The percentage is 12 per cent. You bought a new car for, let’s say ten million and then, they said you should bring 1.2 million for comprehensive insurance. Most people will say, “I should bring 1.2 million naira, I dey craze, they charm me?” But you gave them that 1.2 million, God forbids, either the car was stolen or crashed beyond repair, it will be replaced with brand new car – it works!

One of the men who gave us a big aircraft for the crusade sometimes ago, the first time that aircraft worked, he brought me an offering. He said, this is first charter and I am bringing first fruit and he brought that first fruit and then, the flight just worked and worked and after a while, he had a major problem that will cost 1.2 million Euro, that’s the cost of the repair. I said, “How do you do it?” He said, “It has comprehensive insurance, so insurance took care of it.” He only paid 20-30 per cent and the insurance cleared the balance. That is what happens in the realm of the Spirit. If an earthly insurance corporation can safeguard your earthly welfare, how much more Heaven’s insurance?

I wish we can begin to prove God. A cotton farmer in Kenneth Copeland’s ministry; you know in America, farmers are billionaires and millionaires; you can have the whole land like almost the whole of half of Abuja as a farm and a cotton farmer, the boll weevil was devastating the farmlands, people were losing billions. At a particular time, the cotton needs to open and if it doesn’t open up at that time, then everything is gone and all farms have been destroyed and this man, carried his tithe booklet and stood in front of his farm and just began to wave it; “Lord, I am a tither. You said You will rebuke the devourer for my sake. I stand in front of this farm and I lift up my evidence – I tithe. My investment cannot go the way others have gone” and he stepped off.
See, this farm was devastated from here up to here and then jumped this farm and continued with accuracy, with precision – insurance. Insurance of your health, family; you are not permitted to waste money on what people waste money on. You can use your tithing to claim your health.
– I prophesy to somebody here today, in the name of Jesus, the devourer shall not devour your life, destiny, body and your land!

At the age of 75, Oral Roberts was about to pass on; massive heart attack, he called the wife and said; “Tell God, I am a giver but I’m about to give everything in my account now and tell Him, I don’t want to die” – that’s at age 75. Now, in our area of the world, 75 is already old according to us, but he didn’t want to go at 75; “Tell God I am a giver, but tell Him now, I empty all my account and release it for the sake of the Kingdom.

I want to stay here much longer.” God gave him over 15 more years. He died at age 91, that is 16 more years by pulling the plug on his giving.
– I prophesy to somebody here, you shall fulfill your days!

SECRETS OF FINANCIAL BLESSING OVERFLOW’ (PART 2)
We shall be looking at the subject of being a blessing. After that, we’ll do the wealth mantle impartation.

Somebody will leave here very, very financially massive this morning!
Genesis 12:2-3
Our objective this morning is to understand the power of being a blessing. I want to start by saying that being a blessing is a major secret of being blessed by God and being a blessing is the ultimate of being blessed.

Let me say five things about the matter of being a blessing:
1). The objective of God is not just the blessing of man but making man a blessing to his generation. God’s focus is not just to bless you; His focus is to make you a blessing.

2). There’s something better than being blessed and that is being a blessing. There’s something far better than being blessed; far better than just having a car, house, money to send your children to school in Nigeria or abroad or anywhere.

There is something better than being blessed. In fact, there is something higher than being blessed and that is being a blessing.

3). God will only bless you to the capacity of your willingness to be a blessing to your generation. God can never bless you higher than your willingness to be a blessing. So, the blessing is directly proportional to your capacity of being a blessing. That is, God will never bless you beyond your level of existence as a blessing to your generation.

4). It is a blessing to receive but it is a greater blessing to release.

Getting is a blessing but giving is a higher blessing. Those who get are plenty; those who give are few (Acts 20:35).

You can imagine somebody say, “what is the bill, like up to sixty or seventy-five million; can we just make it round figure to hundred million? Can you be that? Those are people who understand the power of release. It is a blessing to receive; it is a greater blessing to release.

Beloveth, what God wants to do with you is not to make you a depot; He wants to make you a channel. God does not want to turn you into a container; He wants to turn you into a channel. He doesn’t want to make you a pool; He wants to make you a river. He is not planning to turn you into a lake; He wants to produce an ocean out of your life!

When we talk about being a blessing, what are the dimensions of being a blessing?
1). Being a Blessing to God and the Kingdom (Matthew 6:33).

Listen to this; everything you do in life makes sense and produces results only when God is placed first. That is, in your journey of life, anything that must make sense, that must produce results; God must come first. For example, if your time must make sense and must produce results, that time must be given to God first. That is, seek God first in the morning.

Martin Luther said, “I have so much to do today that I must spend the first three hours in prayer before God. That is, if I don’t put God first in the morning, the balance of the day will be wasted.” It applies to every area, including the area of being a blessing.

There are those who can have the mind of giving something to the poor or try to do charity here and there but giving directly to God is not in their dictionary. So they are wondering why things are not working the way they should.

Everything in life makes sense and produces results only when God is placed first. That is, you can bless as many people as you want, but there is a direct giving to God that is the master of all givings and when we say being a blessing to God, somebody say can we bless God? Yes, Psalm 34:1 says I will bless the Lord at all times; in addition to blessing the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

So, being a blessing to God must come first through the following channels:
a). The tithe.
The tithe is a channel and the tithe can be located through scripture in five locations:
i). Before the law of Moses, the tithe existed (Genesis 14:18-20).

Some people argue and say the tithe is a matter of the law and we are not under the Old Testament law anymore. No Sir! That is not true, the tithe came 430 years before the law.

ii). The tithe existed in the law; it was part of the law of Moses (Leviticus 27:30).

iii). The tithe existed in the prophets (Malachi 3:8-12).

iv). The tithe existed in the Gospel, that is from the Master Jesus Himself (Matthew 23:23). Jesus said, what is the use of tithing when you are in bitterness, when you cannot forgive those who offended you? What is the use of tithing when you are living a negative lifestyle? So, it was a validation of tithing.

v). The tithe exists in the epistles, that is inside the new covenant (Hebrews 7:6-8). Paul the Apostle speaking, that the One who sits on the Throne is still receiving tithe. That is, the Church may count the offering, the account office may give you a receipt, but the real Person who receives the tithe is our High Priest that is on the Throne there.

This is important because it is not just what you do that produces you results; it is the understanding with which you do them.

Because it is possible to do the right thing continuously without seeing the right results because results come as a product of revelation, understanding and insight.

I’ll like you to take the following note about the tithe:
1). Tithing is not about the law but about the covenant of supernatural supplies. It is not an issue of the law; it is an issue of supernatural supplies.

2). The tithe existed over 400 years before the law of Moses was given.

3). Abraham, the Father of faith and the symbol of the blessing, was the first tither in scripture.

4). Abraham’s walk with God gave him access to the understanding and the practice of the tithe. He didn’t read it from anywhere, nobody taught him. It appeared as if God in His discussion with him, God began to tell Abraham; “Now, I have promised you greatness, I want to make you big. If you want this thing to work, don’t eat everything I give you.

Set for me the first ten per cent of all that enters your hand and see what I will do with you.” If you get the secret of people, you can get their success. Secrets are the sponsors of success; if you can access the secrets of people, you can access the success of people.

This has nothing to do with the commandment; it has to do with a revelation, a secret that was delivered to a man. That’s was Abraham’s secret behind Abraham’s success.

5). To follow the faith of Abraham and access the blessing of Abraham, you must take the steps of Abraham. If I take the steps of Abraham, if I want to follow the faith of Abraham, I want to access the blessing of Abraham; I am duty bound to take the steps of Abraham because God is no respecter of persons (Hebrews 6:12, Galatians 3:9, Romans 4:12).

6). God never gave man the license to eat everything He gives to man (Genesis 2:16-17). Somebody says if God did not want them to eat the fruit, what happens when the fruit becomes ripe and when the fruit drops? They should just leave it?

No, they will gather it because God pay them periodic visit in the cool of the day.
“Sir, since the last time you came till now, the fruit You said we should not eat, we have one hundred of them, just to let You know and this is it.”
“Alright, I bless you” and then angel, carry the fruits.
If we are not to eat it, we are to present it to the One who owns it. Never has God given man the license to finish everything from then till now.

7). There is what to give to Caesar and there is what to give to God. In all the things that we have, something belongs to Caesar; something belongs to God. Caesar refers to the government, the authority (Mark 12:14-17).

They were asking about tax and He gave them another message. Do you know the summary of the message? Pay your tax; pay your tithes. Don’t dodge the tax and don’t dodge the tithe. Out of your resources, there is what belong to Caesar. How many of you know that many of us, you pay tax whether you like it or not? Every time you make a purchase, they’ve already added it – Value Added Tax, all manner of taxation is happening everywhere and you are not arguing, you are not quarreling; you are not say, why are you deducting this? And meanwhile, you are paying the tax, but there is still no light.

In the Western world, you pay your tax and everything is working; the road is working, the power is working, everything is working. But you pay the tax and you are still struggling with light, water, every single thing but you don’t complain. But God is saying, “give me your tithe; I am the Owner of your life” and you say why? What if He carries the life the way they carry light? Or carries your heartbeat or your beating rate?

God forbids!

Look at your neighbor and say;
“Give to Caesar what you should give to Caesar and give to God what you should give to God. Give to the government what you should give to the government and give to God what you should give to God. Pay your tax and pay your tithe.”

In summary of this point here, what is the benefit of the tithe? Like I said, it is not what you do that produces results; it is the revelation with which you do them. You can do the right thing without knowing what to expect. In the village, they call tithe, “divide it by ten” in the village churches but the status of life never changed for most of them because the revelation is not there; it was just a religious duty.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE TITHE?
1). The tithe confirms man’s stewardship and God’s Ownership of the resources in man’s custody. That is, it confirms that what you have is not your own and it confirms that you can be trusted and entrusted to any extent (Luke 16:10).

When ten million hits your hand and you took one million out of it and say; “Lord, I give You this as my tithe,” you are saying to God, “I confirm that I don’t own this ten million, since I am not the one who gave myself the life that was available to get the money; I didn’t give myself the breath, the brain and the energy that works or anything; You own everything, I confirm that You own all this money and I just release this as a confirmation of Your Ownership and of my stewardship. I am a good caretaker.”

The meaning of that is, “I am available Lord to be trusted with more.” Some people say, it is because I don’t have much money, that’s why I cannot give any tithe. Listen, if you cannot give on ten Naira, you will never be able to give on one thousand, on ten million, not to talk of one billion. God will not even try you near that.

In preaching we said, if you cannot make sense in five minutes; you will not be able to make sense in fifty minutes, you will just be beating around the bush. This is very, very important; your tithing makes God to confirm your trustworthiness, that you can be trusted and can be entrusted. God is not afraid to pass any amount of money through my hands because there is no struggle, not now; from the year of 1986 – higher institution days.

2). The tithe establishes mastery over money and the conquest of greed in the heart of man. One of the challenges of most people is when they get money, then money got them, instead of mastering money, money mastered them. Instead of using money, money is using them.

Instead of controlling money, money is controlling them. But the power of release breaks the power of mammon. If there is the power to release, especially towards God first and then towards anybody, it breaks the grip of mammon (Matthew 6:24).

Tithing influence your character in the area of money; your character is adjusted where money does not make you useless.

3). Tithing grants access to resources beyond earthly scope, limitations and conditions. That is, you are tapping into resources not under the control of the earthly limitations or scope (Malachi 3:10).

The tithe connects earthly resources with Heavenly sources. It is a supernatural flow that cannot be arrested.

Very, very soon, somebody is stepping into a realm of wealth and resources that inflation and deflation cannot affect!
If you are not faithful as a giver, the future of your resources cannot be guaranteed. One day I went to dedicate the business of someone. At that time, it was worth nine zeros in billions and all of a sudden, the whole thing crashed down to zero; crashed so much until it involved court case, imprisonment and so on and I asked the man, what happened? Are you faithful in your covenant practice; in your giving? Because when you deal in this realm, you don’t want to give any chance to any devil. He said, “No Sir, I wasn’t.” He just took things for granted, I did whatever I wanted to do, whenever it is convenient.

I actually assisted him at that down turn with cash. He sowed a car seed before, I returned it back to him. I said, you know what? I want to help you; I don’t want you stranded. I knew it was with your good heart but, I want you to take it back and he appreciated and said, “thank you Sir” and I was happy with that and tutored him back.

You don’t know what you have until you lose it. So, he returned back to the path and then, God brought him back. I said, “How are you now?” He said, “I’m back, about two billion passed through my hand last year.”
He is a merciful God; He is a God who gives you a chance; you blow it, He gives you another chance.

I believe that there’s somebody here today, God is giving you another chance!

4). The tithe is the blessing covenant connector; it is your link to the promised blessing in scripture. The tithe point is the blessing point (Genesis 14:18-20).

There are many who are only quoting the Bible; “I am the head and not the tail, above only and never beneath. My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory.” It doesn’t work like that; there is a connector, there is an adaptor. There are people who are so frustrated quoting promises; when you discharge your responsibilities, you don’t need to beg for your possibilities. It is a blessing covenant connector (Hebrews 7:6-8). As Melchizedek received the tithes, he turned the promises into blessings.

I prophesy to somebody here today, you shall move from the realm of promises into the realm of the blessings!
As you begin to be faithful in your covenant practice, you move from the realm of the promises into the realm of the blessings!
5). The tithe activates divine involvement in human endeavour and assignment. Another way to say this is; It is connecting divine support to human effort. Whenever you brought the tenth, that is you are involving God in what you do. I made a promise of 500,000 from my spare part business in the month of February, when I bring 50,000 to God, I am saying, “God, this business is me and You. I involve You in partnership with this business. This business cannot crash because Your interest is inside.”

“Father, we release the tithe of this ministry to You to cause the Heavens to remain open over this house.” When you bring the tenth of your salary to God, I am saying this so you can understand because it is possible to be tithing without knowing what to expect; “Lord, I am involving You in this work, when they are downsizing people, I am not the one they will start with. I am the one the job will lose, I can’t lose job. When I don’t have that job anymore, it was job that lost me; that is, I’ve found something better to do. I can’t lose a job, I am covenantly tied to God in that job.

I have no re-sit in the University, my pocket money was tithed from thirty naira in the year of 1986 – no re-sit, no carry over. When I told somebody the number of points I had from A-level; biology, chemistry, physics – he said, what? People are struggling with 4, 5, 6 points, you are talking of how many points? My cut-off was far above the cut-off for medicine. Don’t labour alone, don’t suffer alone, don’t just face what you are doing by yourself; let God be a Partner in your assignment, let God be involved in the work of your hands and you will see a difference in your life. There are pastors and there are ministries that don’t know anything about tithing. They are only Melchizedek, they collect from people; they give to nobody and the difference is clear. We don’t beg, we don’t take any offering on crusade ground and we are not stranded and things are moving.

6). The tithe is giving God the license and permission to demonstrate His benevolence and generosity in your life (Malachi 3:10).

7). The tithe is Kingdom comprehensive insurance policy that protects man’s effort and investments (Malachi 3:10-11). Listen; the wealth of a non-tither can never be guaranteed. The future of the non-tither can never be guaranteed. If you don’t pay it to God, you will pay it somewhere.

Do you know comprehensive insurance policy? The percentage is 12 per cent. You bought a new car for, let’s say ten million and then, they said you should bring 1.2 million for comprehensive insurance. Most people will say, “I should bring 1.2 million naira, I dey craze, they charm me?” But you gave them that 1.2 million, God forbid, either the car was stolen or crashed beyond repair and it was replaced with brand new car, it works.

One of the men who gave us a big aircraft for the crusade sometimes ago, the first time that aircraft worked, he brought me an offering. He said, this is first charter and I am bringing first fruit and he brought that first fruit and then, the flight just worked and worked and after a while, he had a major problem that will cost 1.2 million Euro, that’s the cost of the repair. I said, “How do you do it?” He said, “It has comprehensive insurance, so insurance took care of it.” He only paid 20-30 per cent and the insurance cleared the balance. That is what happens in the realm of the Spirit. If an earthly insurance corporation can safeguard your earthly welfare, how much more Heaven’s insurance?

I wish we can begin to prove God. A cotton farmer in Kenneth Copeland’s ministry; you know in America, farmers are billionaires and millionaires; you can have the whole land like almost the whole of half of Abuja as a farm and a cotton farmer, the boll weevil was devastating the farmlands, people were losing billions. At a particular time, the cotton needs to open and if it doesn’t open up at that time, then everything is gone and all farms have been destroyed and this man, carried his tithe booklet and stood in front of his farm and just began to wave it; “Lord, I am a tither.

You said You will rebuke the devourer for my sake. I stand in front of this farm and I lift up my evidence – I tithe. My investment cannot go the way others have gone” and he stepped off.

See, this farm was devastated from here up to here and then jumped this farm and continued with accuracy, with precision – insurance. Insurance of your health, family; you are not permitted to waste money on what people waste money on. You can use your tithing to claim your health.

I prophesy to somebody here today, in the name of Jesus, the devourer shall not devour your life, destiny, body and your land!
At the age of 75, Oral Roberts was about to pass on; massive heart attack, he called the wife and said; “Tell God, I am a giver but I’m about to give everything in my account now and tell Him, I don’t want to die” – that’s at age 75. Now, in our area of the world, 75 is already old according to us, but he didn’t want to go at 75; “Tell God I am a giver, but tell Him now, I empty all my account and release it for the sake of the Kingdom.

I want to stay here much longer.” God gave him over 15 more years. He died at age 91, that is 16 more years by pulling the plug on his giving.

I prophesy to somebody here, you shall fulfill your days!
8). The tithe is the way to notable, visible blessedness and delightsomeness (Malachi 3:12). Nobody can look at you and claim ignorance of what God has done in your life; they shall call you blessed. When we say that the tithe makes God to be involved in what you do, you are open to inspiration and ideas; open to the wisdom that takes your assignment to the next level. Ideas and creativity flow because Heaven’s window is opened.

Finally and conclusion, please take the following note again on the tithe:

1). The tithe is a fixed percentage, not an arbitrary figure. It is the tenth of all income (Genesis 28:22, Leviticus 27:32). God is no respecter of title; there are pastors who don’t tithe and things are tight, poverty continues. This church does not fail to receive my tithe every month for the last twenty-five years, it’s impossible, it’s undreamable. It is the first cheque that is signed because you can’t preach what you are not doing.

I want you to become faithful in giving and let God change your life.

The power of God is coming upon you and every demon of scarcity is arrested off your life in the name of Jesus!
So, somebody got a profit of five billion; wow, God has blessed me! Let me give something generous to appreciate God in church and that is my tithe and he gave 100 million. That is big but that is not tithe; a generous offering never takes the place of tithe. Tithe is fixed. Papa Oyedepo said, every time he saw his grandmother, has a can besides the bed and she will be putting coin and money inside and he asked the grandmother (we should be careful what we teach our children), grandmother taught him tithe; where he is today, massive wealth. He said, “Mama, what are you doing?” She said, that is called the tithe. It is this one that makes the balance useful in your hands. Do you see what the grandmother taught a child? – This is the one I am putting aside now; it is what makes the balance in your hands useful. If you don’t give this one, whatever remains in your hand is useless.

2). The tithe is to be given or set apart before anything else, where possible. That is, money hits your hand, it is either the tenth of it is set apart if it cannot be immediately paid where possible so that the God-first principle can remain (Matthew 6:33).

There are people who finished doing everything, the tithe is not the first thing that comes to their mind, they have finished doing everything before they remember the tithe, it should not be so.

3). The tithe and every other form of giving, should be done willingly and excitedly to produce desired results. There are those who do it grudgingly, there are even those who think they are doing church a favour (2 Corinthians 9:6-7). Don’t do it like you are doing church a favour; don’t do it like you are under pressure and duress, don’t do it and be annoyed; it kills the result.

4). The tithe shall be given into your storehouse, the place of your meat and spiritual feeding. The storehouse is where the food is kept, the place of the bread (Malachi 3:10). Giving on fertile ground, I will not give my tithe to anybody I am sure does not pay tithe and I cannot give my tithe to anybody that will mismanage the resources. Papa Oyedepo said, an American pastor asked him, “why is it that people in our church don’t give offering?” He said “because they don’t trust you.” He was very blunt, “they don’t trust. See the size of life that you are living; in our country, a pastor of your size can’t drive this kind of car you are driving.”

Don’t let anybody prophesy to you on the road and say, “God said you should give me your tithe.” That is a fraud. I prayed for one sister many years ago at the beginning of our ministry, she was stranded; God brought increase, she got contracts, was it from NNPC or somewhere, money came in millions and at that time, church was still meeting either in Sheraton or somewhere and she said, that tithe was too big for the Church; the Church is a small church. So she distributed the tithe to somebody; help take this amount to this place, take this one to this place, take that one to that place. That person was a physical devourer, he ate all the money; the tithe didn’t reach anywhere. I’m not sure the person recovered up till now.

Don’t forget, the fertile soil, fertile ground; that place of your meat, that is the place of your tithe. One day, Papa Oyedepo preached a message like this in Lagos and there was a member of the Church who had followed them from Kaduna, twenty something years, elder and the elder said, “Okay, I now understand the tithe,” after 23 years of being in a church whose major pillar is faith and prosperity.

ou hear the tithe every year, yet the man did not understand and followed and continued in financial struggle for twenty something years. You can be old in the Church and still not understand what we are saying and there are those who can just step in; there’s someone here who is less than two or three years in the Church, this guy will pay tithe to the Church account; 2:00 AM, if alert hits his account and he gets income, he will wire it that same night. Now, paying tithe and giving and receiving a harvest of almost six zeros almost every week – new comer who just heard something and just jumped into it. But there are old timers who are analyzing everything until they paralyze everything.

Your story is changing!
Maybe you have heard it all this while and you are now hearing it today and it is making more sense to you today than ever, I decree your story is changing!

My counsel is:
Start from where you are and start immediately. If you wait for perfect conditions, you don’t get anything done and once you have started, don’t stop again. At times the devil will say, but the result hasn’t come yet. The Bible says, be not weary… (Galatians 6:9).

There was a time I was giving in my life and it appears as if there were no results, those who are not giving were doing better than me, as if those who were not practicing what I was practicing, they were appearing more successful but that is the lie of the devil. The devil will make things to look like that. But after a while, the difference came; from the difference, the gap came. The gap is a non-closable gap now.

There were those who appeared successful then without practicing the things we are saying. The days of cellular, they had cellular; we were still struggling then. Some of them don’t have house today. Not all that glitters is gold; they may be people who may appear fast today, but they fail later and there are those who appear slow today, but they succeed later.

I believe that shall be your portion!
God is opening a chapter for you, changing the story of your life, changing your destiny!
Lift your hands and give Him the praise, adoration, worship, supremacy, dominion, rule; Father, we thank You in the name of Jesus.

PRAYERS:
Father, thank You for the revelation of Your Word, I have received Your Word and I know my life can never remain the same in the name of Jesus. I receive the grace to practice what I have received; I receive that grace now in the name of Jesus!
