This is the second part of our discussion of the topic ‘toward understanding how to take delivery of God’s abundant blessing”. I hope that you have read part one for a better understanding? If not, GO HERE to read part one.
In part one, we saw one of the reasons some Christians are poor and may remain poor till they die. In this segment, we shall be looking at another reason why some Christians are poor.
As we saw in part one, some Christians are responsible for their being poor because they failed to utilize the power God gave them to get wealth.
It is worthy to point out that most of the Christians that are poor claim to be paying tithe, sowing seed, and giving quality offerings. The question is why are they still poor?
The major reason some people who are committed to paying tithe, sowing seed, and giving quality offerings, but are still poor is they’re faulty.
Some Christians, because they are committed to paying tithe, are expecting that God will prosper them, but feel disappointed that they are still poor despite their faithfulness in paying tithe.
Please, the problem is not with God, but with individuals getting the full benefit of paying tithe has to do with our knowledge and understanding about what to do or how to take delivery of God’s abundant blessing.
For the avoidance of doubts, God never promised that He will prosper us if we pay tithes. Please read Malachi chapter three very well.
Rather, God promised that if we are faithful in paying tithe. God promised that he will open for us the windows of heaven, And pour out for us such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.
Most Christians who are paying tithe, but are still poor are trying to prove that God is not faithful in opening for us the windows of heaven, And pouring out for us such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.
Please this is not so as God is too faithful to fail. What happened is that the problem with these Christians is that they failed to take delivery of God’s abundant blessing released to them as a result of an open heaven.
As said, the issue with many Christians is that they are continually bombarding heaven, expecting God to pour them currency or to be getting multiple credit alerts in their bank.
Please, I am not saying that you cannot get a miracles credit alert. What I am saying is that our issues have to do with our taking delivery of the blessing that God released for us.
The major cause of our failure to take delivery of the blessing is that many Christians are ignorant of how this blessing comes. Please stop expecting God to prosper you because you are paying tithe because you will end till eternity without getting it.
The reason is that God never promised us that. Rather, what he promised is to open for us the windows of heaven, And pour out for us such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.
The blessing God poured as a result of an open heaven, it is highly unfortunate that only a few Christians were able to take custody or delivery of it.
The majority of Christians are ignorant, therefore, failed to take delivery of the blessing. Secondly, some are expecting God’s blessings. Please, God never promised us blessings, rather, he promised us the blessing.
This is one knowledge I wish that Christians should have. The book of Proverbs 10:22 said that this blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.
The blessing, once it comes upon a man, it makes the man rich by provoking other blessings. This brings us back to the reason some tithers are poor and may remain poor till they die.
God promised that he will open the window and pour a tither a blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it. However, a Christian may be blessed but still remain poor if he fails to use the blessing to make himself rich.
Please get the point very well, a blessing is not riches because it is the blessing that is used to make rich. This then comes the question of how do I translate the blessing to become riches?
Before going ahead, I wish to point out that translating the blessing into riches is solely our personal responsibility and the reason some Christians are poor is that they lacked the knowledge of how to translate the blessing into riches.
Having said that, it is those Christians that possessed the relevant knowledge of how to translate the blessing to become riches that ended up commanding the kingdom’s prosperity.
Will you be among those tithers that are in command of kingdom prosperity by having adequate knowledge and understanding about taking custody or taking delivery of God’s abundant blessing, and as well adequate knowledge of how to translate the blessing to become riches?
The level of adequate knowledge we possess determines how much of the blessing we will be able to translate into riches. This brings us to the end of part two. We will continue our discussion in part three, so keep a date with us. Shalom!
