***Tithing is an Act of Worship; Worship is a Key ***
Now: Because of Adams disobedience to God, He lost dominion of the earth to Satan which meant Satan became the ruler of the earth and in order for God to continue in relationship with Adam and protect him, there was a need to appease God through designated sacrifice which without it, God could not intervene in the earth realm.
It became necessary that Adam after tilling the land had to offer sacrifices to God and one of this was the tithe, which represented one tenth of his harvest and this principle was what he passed on to Cain and Abel (See Genesis 4:2-4; Genesis 14:18-20).
But despite Cain awareness of God’s requirement, he still transgressed and offered profane sacrifice to the Lord and unfortunately most of us still do this by not following what the Lord prescribed as tithe offering but yet we expect the best from God.
Luke 4: 5-7 Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.”
Note: Satan also knows the importance of worship and demands such from every of his followers.
I Pray today that you will choose to worship and honour God through the grace in Jesus Christ. Amen
