The Incorrect Offering

Genesis 4:5

King James Version (KJV)

 5But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

God did not respect Cain’s offering. Why? Because Cain didn’t offer the animal sacrifice. While he did give of his ground, he did not give what God required. Cain could have sold his fruit and vegetables to Abel to receive an unblemished lamb. These boys knew what to do because they watched their father for years. Adam knew how to sacrifice to the Lord. Adam knew how to give his very best. I am positive he taught his family how to honor the Lord with their increase. I believe Adam was a great dad. Why? Because he was made in the similitude (likeness) of God.

Today the church is lacking in the proper Tithes and Offerings. Why? Because Fathers and Mothers are not teaching their children what it means to be a blessing. The body of Christ is lacking today because the lack of teaching from the pulpit. Some Pastors are lacking in the teaching of tithes and offerings because it makes them feel as if they’re trying to dig into people’s wallets. Well Pastors, you don’t have to feel that way ever again. Congregates you don’t have to feel that way either. The Pastors are not asking for the tithes and offerings, God is. God is the one who ordained Tithes and Offerings. We can see this in Malachi chapter 3. You can also find out why it is important to teach on Tithes and Offerings in the New Testament in Hebrews 7. God has made it clear that He wants the first of your increase. You are also to bring an offering.

If you are not doing your part where the Word is concerned you will be able to see why God has not blessed you with an overflow. Many churches are lacking and dying because of the lack of teaching tithes and offerings. The people perish for a lack of knowledge. Why? Because the people are not being taught what the Bible says. This is true where Fatherhood is concerned. Men need to teach their children to honor the Lord and honor His house. Pastors are like Fathers. Pastors need to teach the people how to offer a correct tithe and offering.

I don’t know about you, but I refuse to be a fake Pastor. I refuse to let the people escape from the Word of God. I refuse to give in and shut up. I will continue to teach on Tithes and Offerings in our church. I will continue to show the people and not just teach them. I will continue to offer God the correct Tithe and Offering. I don’t want God to be disrespected. I will pay what is due and offer freely with a cheerful heart. God wants my best in money and everything else. I will cheerfully do this because it will cause the blessing to come and overtake me.

This Sunday I challenge all who read this to start tithing and bring offerings. I challenge you to test God to see if He will open the windows of Heaven and pour out a blessing. The tithe is ten percent of the gross amount on your check. The offering is above the tithe and that is to be freely and cheerfully given. You can’t know if you’re not taught and you can’t grow if you’re not challenged. I love you all and I want the blessing to overtake you!

Scripture Study: Malachi 3:6-12

Be Blessed!

  1. Paul says:

    Powerful word Pastor Phil, yes God wants whats his and “wow” how much more of himself does he give back. God open up that window of heaven over Texas and Wales in Your name.

    //Pastors are like Fathers.//

    1 Corinthians 4:15-
    “Even though you have ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel.”

    I always pull this one out when people get bent out of shape over some Christians calling their pastors fathers…Paul called himself a father as did John. It even has a Jewish context as the father of the household would preside over the family’s prayers and worship.

    • Yes. Pastors are like Fathers.
      They are supposed to nurture and care for the church body. Many times the Pastors are not caring for the body (sheep). Usually they are the ones beating the sheep and causing great harm. Real fathers know how to love and care for their family. It’s sad to think that people don’t think of Pastors like fathers. The bible says we are made in the similitude of God. We are made like the Father and our actions are imitate those of a Father. Have a blessed day! Thank you for visiting my blog and thank you for your comment. Pastor Philip
