The blessing is an empowerment to have results in every area of your life. It is a supernatural enablement. The curse, on the other hand, is an empowerment to fail and it always has a cause.

While Believers are already blessed by God, they can block the blessing
from flowing in their lives by not tithing. Tithing is not so much a New
Testament law as it is an act of love for God. When we truly love Him,
we willingly give 10% of our financial increase to Him.

  1. The day you are born again God deposits His blessing within you (Ephesians 1:3).
    1. You already possess God's blessing.
      1. You can block the blessing from flowing in your life.
      2. A curse doesn't come without a cause (Proverbs 26:2).

  2. Tithing releases the blessing in your life.
    1. Tithe means a tenth portion.
      1. Example: a tithe of $100 is $10.00.
    2. Tithing is a way to activate the blessing in your life.
    3. Abraham brought a tenth of his spoils from battle to the high priest, Melchizedek.
      1. In exchange for the tithe, Melchizedek released the blessing upon Abraham (Genesis 14:18-24).
      2. The tithing exchange allowed Abraham to receive Melchizedek's blessing and Abraham was empowered to prosper as a result.
        1. The blessing is the root to the fruit.
        2. When you have the blessing, you will see the manifestation of it as Abraham did.

  3. Jesus is our High Priest just as Melchizedek was to Abraham (Hebrews 6:20).
    1. Jesus became our High Priest so that the seed of Abraham (Believers) could go through the same process Abraham did to release the blessing flow in his life
      through the tithe.
    2. Tithing is something you do out of your love for God.
      1. Abraham's motive for giving a tenth to the high priest was not because it was required by the law or a specific commandment to tithe. He tithed because He loved God (Hebrews 7:2-19).
    3. Jesus never commanded people to tithe in the New Testament but the commandment to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength encompasses all the laws in the Old Testament, including
      1. When you operate in the law of love, you fulfill all the other commandments in the Bible.
      2. When you keep the commandment of love, you will want to tithe out of your love and appreciation for God.
      3. Your love for God should motivate you to give (Luke 10:27).

  4. Tithing stops the enemy from devouring your life (Malachi 3:6-12).
    1. When you are a tither, you have an advantage over Satan and his schemes to destroy your life.
      1. God promises to rebuke the devourer for your sake.
      2. God will manifest Himself to you when you tithe.
