Tither’s Rights

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

Everyone wants the benefits of God’s lavish grace but are unwilling to yield to its demands.

Don’t kid yourself, walking in the spirit is serious business.

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:4 KJV

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. Romans 8:5 KJV

The promise that God will rebuke the devourer is only given to the Tither.


Pentecost

But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.
Acts 1:8 AMPC

Pentecost is not a denomination. It’s a personal enduement of power for every yielded believer.

Being baptized in the Holy Spirit is an enabling, empowering encounter with the Holy Spirit of Glory given to every yielded believer in Jesus the Christ.

To be “yielded” is to willingly present yourself as a soldier to your commanding officer for orders, to place a person or thing at one’s disposal.

When you willingly present yourself you receive the weapons of your warfare.

For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, 2 Corinthians 10:4 AMPC

For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. 2 Corinthians 10:3 AMPC


Holy Ghost

Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. Acts 2:33 KJV

Being filled with the Holy Ghost should be both observable and heard. This brings the question, Why are there so many Christians that have a problem with speaking in tongues?

Christians are supposed to be Holy Ghost filled people.

Glossolallia, speaking the language of the Spirit, should be the uncontestable normal Christian experience. Speaking in tongues is only one of the manifestations of the promise of the Father.

It is only one, yet an important one, of the manifestations of a life yielded to the Person and presence of the Holy Ghost.

The promise of the Father is to be baptized with the Holy Ghost and fire.

I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Matthew 3:11 KJV

The Holy Ghost baptism releases power while the fire purges and purifies.

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8 KJV

Be yielded. Be filled.


Having Eyes To See

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 KJV

Keep looking up with the eye of faith.

Raise your gaze.

Glean from the unseen.

See what can be.

Because, You can not go where you ca not see.

Spiritual eyes see through the darkness much like head lights on a car allow you to see at night.

Read the a word, meditate on the Word, pray in the spirit, and you will begin to see the path ahead.

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. John 16:13 KJV

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Romans 8:14 KJV


Anointed

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. Acts 10:38 KJV

The anointing of the Anointed One is in you so that you, too, can go about doing good and healing all that are oppressed of the devil.
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:  Colossians 1:27 KJV

God, Who cannot fail, is with you, in you, and for you! 


Hearing


He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination. Proverbs 28:9 KJV

Do you hear what I hear? It is possible to listen and not hear what is actually being said. There is spiritual ear as well as a natural ear. Sometimes spiritual immaturity can hinder what we hear. Pride, arrogance, indifference and all other carnality can block spiritual truth from being heard.

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. Matthew 11:15 KJV

We should pray to have our spiritual eyes enlightened and our spiritual ears tuned to the truth of God’s Word.


Web of Deception


For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 KJV

We war against the demon spirits behind the culture of violence and death, not the people caught in their deceptive, delusional web.
While we must speak out on behalf of Christ Jesus with the Gospel message and attempt to reason with people, the real power we wield is in prayer.

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:4‭-‬5 KJV

The devil and his demons are ruling the sense realm with feelings and emotion. We must stay in faith and speak the sound facts of the Word of God.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; Ephesians 6:13‭-‬18 KJV

Remember, We win!
