Malachi 3:10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!…
“so there will be enough food in my Temple.”
God called (employed) his full time workers and he made a legal provision channel for there wages. It is written, ” a labourer is worthy of his wages”. The work of God is divided basically into two: 1) In house work in the Church and: 2) Field work (outreaches) out of the Church. The full time men and women serving at different capacities, including full time musicians and singers, are purposefully designed to be cared for basically with the basic tithe and (meet) offering by God. Everyone in the old testament “Church ” knew and understood the God intended purpose. It was not used for any other use except the God intended purpose. So, there was no issues.
The use of tithe and (meet) offering for something other than the God intended purpose is an abuse of the God’s sacred order. Tithe and (meet) Offering is God’s wages structure and system for his workers here on earth. It is written, “the labourer is worthy of his wages”. This is why Paul said in
1 Corinthians 9:13-14 Do you not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? Even so has the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
The problem in today’s Church is that the Church leaders are not emphatically teaching the Church this true purpose of tithe and (meet) offering. Instead the Church is been taught that, it is used for Church facilities procurement and maintenance. Whereas God Established a different offering to be raised for such separately, which is the Kingdom Project offering with a unique blessing entirely different from the blessing of tithe and (meet) offering. This you can read in Haggai chapter 1 from the beginning to the end.
When God wanted to build the Tabernacle in the days of Moses, it did not use tithe and meet offering. He asked Moses to raise an offering for it Exodus 25. Both the Tabernacle and all that was needed inside of the Tabernacle for the worship of God. So it was not the tithe and (meet) offering that was used. It was the project offering that was raised.
Now the expectation of the Church for the use of tithe and (meet) offering will shift when they are taught this truth. God also ordained unique blessing for those who willingly obey to consistently and continually bring their tithe and (meet) offering to his house (Church). Those who refuse to bring their tithe and (meet) offering are exempted from the blessing. Why, because God is just. Also, the blessing of tithe and (meet) offering is different from the blessing of project offering and so on.
