Rewarder

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6 KJV

We being Diligent seekers find God, in Christ, is our Rewarder.

A haphazard, carnal, laxidaisicle approach to the things of God will never bring you into the riches found in Christ.

It is to the diligent seeker His glory is seen.

Be a diligent seeker.


Brother

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV

Alexander the great would gather his soldiers and honor the most valient in battle by embracing them and declaring, ” This man is my brother.”

What a friend we have in Jesus. He sticks closer than a brother. Yes, when you ask God to walk through life with you He will never desert you nor will He fail you. In fact, He will fight your battles for you.

For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother. Mark 3:35 KJV


For You

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV

When you are on God’s side He is on your side. When you are in Christ Jesus is always for you.

His love is unfailing and so is His commitment to do you good. This is His covenant promise.

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord , and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord . Isaiah 54:17 KJV


Unprofitable?

Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you. Hebrews 13:17 KJV

Obedience and willing obedience to delegated authority seems to be a foreign concept to many Christians in the West; even when God delegates His authority.

The Centurian, whose servant was ill, recognized Jesus’ was under authority of God the Father as he was to Ceasar and gained his servant’s healing by a word.

Biblical profit is gained by those who esteem the gift that God has given to “watch for [their] souls” and determine to bring them joy rather than grief.

But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Hebrews 13:16 KJV

Not For Everyone

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1 KJV

Why is it that that Christians believe that every promise in scripture is for them irregardless of their life-style?

The covenant promises are actually only for those who honor and walk in covenant with God.

His great and precious promises are only given to those who are not only in Christ but to those are also walking after the Spirit rather than carnally.

To claim Christ as Lord and Savior but to live willfully walk after the flesh is to block the benefits of salvation from being manifest.

The result of disobedience is to walk in guilt, shame, insecurity, and condemnation.

Walk in a loving relationship, be married to the Lord, and you will receive every promise as “yes and amen” and you will walk in covenant confidence.


Covenant

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10 KJV

Give God His just due. The Tithe (10% of your gross inctease) belongs to Him. Walk in covenant with God and receive His blessing to prosper.

The Tithe is Holy and to keep it for yourself is to break covenant with God and to bring a curse upon yourself and your family.

But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV


Tithers Rights


Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10 KJV

There are certain rights that tithers have. One of which is that the Lord will rebuke the devourer when he comes to steal, kill, and destroy.

And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts. Malachi 3:11 KJV

Another is that the tithe will live under an open heaven and will be showered with heaven’s blessings.

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 KJV

Everyone wants the benefits of being in covenant with God in Christ, but many refuse to keep their side of the covenant, to be willing and obedient.

If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: Isaiah 1:19 KJV

Time to get our house in order, don’t you think?
