Each time I read Hebrew 6:18 my mind gets blown, and my faith gets boast to realize that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie. That is to say that even if God wanted to, it is impossible for Him to lie.
For that reason, according to part of that verse, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. Prior to Hebrew 6:18, verse 17 says, “Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath.
In other words, it is because God determined to show more abundantly to us, the heirs of the promise, the immutability of His counsel. That He confirmed it by an oath and by reason of two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie.
Since it is impossible for God to lie, it follows then that the full realization of the promises in our lives is our responsibility. In other words, it is our faith that will determine whether we are going to realize the promises of God in our lives or not.
It may be for that reason that Jesus told some blind folks that came to him for healing, saying to them “according to your faith, let it be to you”.
That is equally the reason that you see some people living out the full potential of their destiny, while some are not. It is for that reason that Malachi asked in Malachi 3:8 saying, “Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me”!.
When God said that we are robbing him, it is not that we are robbing him of His glory or other tangible things. Rather, it means that we are robbing Him of the opportunities to bless us.
That is to say, we are robbing him of the opportunity to open the window of heaven and pour us blessings, and as Malachi 3:10 puts it, “it will not open for us the windows of heaven and pour out for us such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it”.
Obviously, this question still stands that is begging for an answer, “why are some people, especially some Christians living out their full potential as they are enjoying the fullness of God’s blessings while greater numbers are living far below their potential?.
Suffice it to say that some of those that are not living out their full potential or enjoying the fullness of God’s blessings. They are those that are robbing God of the opportunities to open the windows of heaven and pour out to them blessings.
It is with respect to the blessings of God that some are robbing God. According to part of Malachi 3:8, it says, “but you say, ‘In what way have we robbed God?. God, responded, saying that it is in tithes and offerings.
It is my sincere prayer, therefore, that this post will open your eyes of understanding so that you will know the truth, which Jesus said in John 8:32 that knowledge of the truth will set us free.
When we have true knowledge of the truth and apply such knowledge, we will surely fly higher in life. It is unfortunate that some genuine Christians, even genuine men of God or pastors, are celebrating their ignorance by claiming to know what they never knew.
Please the truth, I wish to reveal to you is that God determining to show more abundantly to us, the heirs of the promise, the immutability of His counsel. Had confirmed it by an oath and by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie.
It is when we fully realize that it is impossible for God to lie that our faith is boasted to trust and build confidence in God. Any area of our lives where we are able to believe and trust God, we will celebrate our freedom in that area.
Some are living in divine health because they have true or adequate knowledge and as well believed in and trusted God with respect to their health, while some are not.
Most people are enjoying the fullness of God’s blessings because they have adequate spiritual knowledge of the principles of the kingdom’s prosperity. By their correct application of this knowledge they have about the principles of the kingdom’s prosperity, they are prospering or flying high in life.
One of these kingdom principles that make for our flying high in life is the mystery of the tithe, or tithing. It is highly unfortunate that some who desire to prosper in this kingdom are ignorant of this mystery or principle.
That is to say, it is pure ignorance that prevents some from paying their tithe. Secondly, it is their lack of faith and trust in God that He will make good what he has promised that made them not pay their tithe while forgetting that God is ever committed to making good His promises.
I am equally sorry to say that even some genuine men /women of God are ignorant of the mystery of the tithe or tithing. As long as you are ignorant of this mystery, you will ever continue to struggle to pay tithe.
Some Ignorant Christians concerning the mystery of the tithe or tithing are always happy when they meet ignorant pastors who tell them that they don’t need to pay tithe.
Other categories of ignorant pastors are those who see the tithe as a financial obligation their church members owe to the church or ministry. That is, they see the tithe as a means to raise money for their church. For that reason, you always see such pastors coarse their members to pay their tithe.
Some members equally see the tithe as a compulsory financial obligation they owe to the pastor and the church. For that reason, they are paying the so-called tither with agony or with the pain of having to part with their meager income.
I am bold to point out that when you have true knowledge of the mystery of tithe, no man/woman on earth will ever encourage or discourage you about the issue of paying or not paying tithe.
This is the end of part one, we will continue our discourse in part two next. I really hope that you have gotten one or two things from the post? If yes, why not share the post with your friends and followers on social media.
I am really counting on you to share this post and other posts with your social media followers. Until I come your way again, remember that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie. That is to say that even if God wanted to, it is impossible for Him to lie. Shalom!.
