There are many who still have not learned the deep and very important truth that: don’t give according to how much you think you do not have to give from….. but learn to “Give by faith” in honor of God’s Promise.
Many think that tithing is absolutely awful because they think God is asking too much, when they have so little!
I have had many tell me, “I cannot afford to give.”
“Wow,” I said, “Really? Well is there no way to simply just give by faith anyway, seeing that you have so very little to start with, because you don’t have enough to live on already. What is there to lose?
“If you only receive one-dollar-a-day in wages, you should by Faith give God the ten cents of it, in Faith and believe His Promise!”
“Wow, really? Would you receive ten cents a day if given in the offering plate?”
“Absolutely and for sure!” I said, “but you must know that if everyone gave ten cents per day and there were 100 people giving the same, it would be $10.00. And, if you had 1000 — poor people who only earned one dollar a day and did tithe one tenth — “By Faith“, that would add up to $100.00 per day.
If I was a pastor in India, that perhaps would be a lot! I saw, when I went to India, people lined up on the street trying to make ten cents, and if they could they could, they possibly could eat one meal every three days! Now that was poor!
Surely everyone here in the us could give $7.00 every week? If you don’t have that, surely you could mow someones grass, carry trash, or sell aluminum cans, and earn one dollar a day?
If that was a tithe, that would only prove to “You” that you have a very poor job! In America, you cannot live a week on that!
Well consider this, The Word of God says and promises:
“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.
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.
And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith The LORD of Hosts.” Malachi 3:10-12.
So I understand from this promise :
If these poor people did only give one tenth of what they earn, even if they only earn $1.00 a day, they would not be poor much longer because god would change their wages!
Suddenly they would see heaven open and they would receive such a great blessing, that they would not have a house large enough to hold all of it!
On top of this “Poured out blessings” they would suddenly realize that the enemy who is destroying their job opportunities or fields planted, and taking away their harvest….
Would be killed or destroyed! Well, would that not help in the earnings department?
And if their enemy is dead… then they are above all men most blessed! Suddenly they begin to prosper because the one working against all they do, is gone!
So, please tell me, how can you “afford” to not give from your poverty by faith?
Many of you cannot even trust god to do what he promises.
This then is the real sin. No Faith in God to do what He says He will do!
Scriptures to read:
“Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed Me. But ye say, wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed Me, even this whole nation.
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. 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. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith The LORD of Hosts.”Malachi 3:8-12.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.” Hebrews 11:1-2.
“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.

As I see and hear it, now I write what I hear.
LORD help Your People who think they are poor, say they are rich.
For truly they are by faith — if they will walk in Faith!
