Leviticus 27:30

The Tithe is the Lord’s

Transcript

Leviticus 27:30 thus all the tithe of the land of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree is the LORD’S it is holy to the LORD Shabbat Shalom today is another day we get to celebrate the Lord’s Shabbat a day to be dedicated to the Lord to be set aside, separated and we’re going to talk today a little bit about the tithe I find that this is something that is very misunderstood by so many people God showed me an incredible revelation from this scripture we just read many many years ago that the tithe is something entirely different than offerings it’s interesting it says two things about the tithe here it says the tithe is the Lord’s or is Yahweh’s you know what I always thought the tithe was all my Christian life I thought the tithe was me giving God 10% of my money and one day when I read this particular passage I realized oh the tithe is not me giving God 10% of MY money the tithe IS His it belongs to Him so if the tithe is Yahweh’s whose is it not and I realized it’s not mine so the tithe is not me giving God 10% of my money the tithe is me having an opportunity to learn to manage someone else’s money and the second thing that it said that was new to me something I didn’t understand it says the tithe is holy unto Yahweh holy unto the Lord so what does holy mean I always thought Holy meant very very righteous very high moral standard I did a word study on that it’s the Hebrew word kadosh and I realized holy doesn’t mean very very righteous holy actually means just a very simple thing dedicated, set aside, separated so the tithe is money that’s dedicated, set aside, separated when we look at that holy it’s interesting the reason we may maintain a standard of righteousness and purity in our lives is because we’re dedicated to Yahweh dedicated to God so yes that may produce righteous behavior but Holy actually means dedicated, set aside, separated so for example if I had 5 telephone lines going into an office 4 of them go to voice communication they’re common lines by the way the opposite of holy is the word common so holy is dedicated common is that which is not dedicated so in the office example 4 telephone lines come in that go to voice communication they’re common we use them to talk to anybody the 5th line for example we call that a dedicated line it goes to a fax machine dedicated to the fax machine another word for dedicated and I know this is a strange usage of this word but we could say with an absolutely appropriate usage this 5th line is holy unto the fax machine what does that mean that means it’s set aside it’s separated it’s dedicated is it made out of a different material no why is it holy the reason is it’s dedicated set aside or separated so what is the tithe the tithe is your opportunity to manage money which doesn’t belong to you Yeshua said in Luke 16:10-12 who will give you that which is your own if you have never learned to manage that which belongs to another do you know what the tithe is the Lord’s tithe it’s your opportunity to learn how to manage money that doesn’t belong to you and there by qualify yourself to manage a larger account of God’s money for example suppose a multi trillionaire came to your city looking for faithful administrators through whom he could channel money into the Kingdom of God for example and He said I want to find 10 people that I could give $100,000 a month to pass it through them and your job if you’re one of these chosen ones is to just administrate my $100,000 I’ll take care of you I’ll pay your expenses I’ll give you a good wage but $100,000 doesn’t belong to you it belongs to me and your job is just to administrate it to be an agent an administrator of my money many people would like that job but if I were that multi billionaire how would I find 10 faithful people you know what I would do I would maybe chose 100 people give each of them a small qualification test of say $100 or $500 a month of my money and say I want you to channel this into the Kingdom as I direct you if you’re faithful to do that you may qualify yourself to be one of the ones I give $100,000 to what if that person doesn’t realize it’s my money and they use it like it was their own they spend it they pay their bills sometimes they bring half of it sometimes they bring all of it would I qualify that person to manage a larger account and the answer is of course not who am I looking for someone who is faithful to manage a small account of my money qualifies himself or herself to manage a large account of my money I believe that is exactly the purpose of the tithe it’s God’s qualification test to determine who has learned to manage a small account of money that doesn’t belong to them like an escrow agent or like a lawyer managing an account of somebody else’s money a stock broker managing an account of somebody else’s money the tithe is your opportunity to learn to manage a small account of money that doesn’t belong to you it belongs to God it’s dedicated, set aside, holy and it’s to be delivered to the storehouse regularly what’s the storehouse that’s the place where you’re regularly where you regularly fellowship where you’re fed where you’re ministered to that’s the storehouse what I found is this principle when you’re faithful to manage a small account of God’s money He releases a large account of His money to pass through you as a steward to manage on His behalf I pray today that when you learn to manage the Lord’s tithe to faithfully deliver it to the storehouse that you qualify yourself to be one of those ones that the Lord uses to release a large amount of His finances flowing through your life I just want to pray that for you I just pray for you today in the mighty name of Yeshua that as you manage the small account of the Lord’s tithe it releases miracles financially in your life and that you would qualify yourself before the Lord to manage a huge account of His money passing through you I pray today God’s grace would be upon you to manage the small account of the Lord’s tithe to dedicate it, set it aside I encourage you as a matter of fact put it in a separate account don’t even mix it with your own common funds in your checking account put it in a separate account so that its dedicated and deliver it directly to the storehouse I pray for God’s grace on you to do that for multiplication in your finances in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
