9. Honour the LORD with thy Substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine Increase:
10. So shall thy barns be filled with Plenty, and thy Presses shall burst out with New Wine.
10. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
*Blessings are in Degrees – We have:*
1. The Destitute.
2. The Poor.
3. The Comfortable.
4. The Rich.
5. The Wealthy.
6. The Prosperous.
7. The Flourishing.
8. The “Double-Portion” Blessed.
*We are serving a God who is “The Almighty” – All Powers belong to Him in Heaven, on Earth, Underneath the Earth.*
His Name is “The Most High” – Higher than the highest. His Name is “The Almighty” – Stronger than the strongest. There is no One like Him – None!
When He speaks, it is done – Psalms 33: 8-9 says: Let the whole Earth fear before Him.
Why? – Because He speaks and it is done. He rules by Decrees.
Psalms 119: 89 says: Forever Oh Lord, thy Word is Settled.
But He is Sovereign, the Most Powerful, Most High, Richest, the Heavens belongs to Him, the Earth belongs to Him, the Fullness thereof belongs to Him, the Cattle upon the Thousand Hills they all belongs to Him.
… He is just Incredible!
But then the Bible says in Psalms 115:3 – Our God is in the Heavens, He does as He Pleases.
So that for Example in 1 Samuel 2:30; He said: Go and tell Eli – I said that indeed you and your father’s house will stand before me forever but now I’m saying I’m not saying so anymore.
But they said: When you speak, it is done; they said forever Oh Lord thy Word is Settled. How can you say I said and now you are not saying so again? He said: Well, if you don’t like it sue me!
Many of us don’t even know the God that we are serving! Many People think that God is a Father Christmas. He is not!
The Bible says that He is even Fearful in Praises – That when you are even Praising Him, you should do so with an Element of Fear.
So, if He says that this is what I’m going to do and then He turns around and say I am not doing so anymore; who is there to Challenge Him?
You want to sue Him? Let’s find out who is going to be the Judge? Let’s find out the Senior Advocate that is going to take your Case?
Just tell Him that I’m suing You before Justice “So and So” and before the date of the Meeting, He (God) will cancel the Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) of the Judge.
You are here on Earth because He gave you Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) to occupy the Earth.
… That’s my Daddy! That’s my God!
Like I told some People not too long ago – He (God) told me Specifically: Son, you know that I love you and you belong to me. I will take no Nonsense from you – Misbehave and I will deal with you.
I mean some years ago, one Military Governor of Ogun State says that he wanted to close down The Redemption Camp.
I told him that my Daddy gave me this Land – The whole Land belongs to Him and He gave me this small Portion of it.
He said that he will cancel my Certificate of Occupancy (C of O). And I said that my Father will cancel your own Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) to stay here on Earth.
*But as Powerful as He (God) is, as Sovereign as He is; there is one Law that He made that He Himself won’t break – And that Law is called “The Law of Harvest”.*
In Galaxies 6:7 – He said: Be not deceived, God is not mocked; whatever a Man sows that he shall also reap.
*That is one Law that God can never, never break – He can’t say that I didn’t say so when it comes to “The Law of Harvest”.*
*You want me to Prove it to you? – I will.*
Mark 4:36 – Jesus Christ was Praying intensely. The Bible says that He was Praying so fervently that He was sweating Blood.
What was His Prayer? – Father, all Things are Possible with You. I know that You are my Daddy and You can do anything. Let us Change this Plan of Salvation – Take this Cup away from me.
And Daddy (God) says No!
Why did He say No? – He says that I must sow for me to reap! I must give my “First Fruit” if I am going to have “Overflowing Number of Children”.
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son.
Romans 8:29 tells us why? – That Jesus Christ might become the first born of many Brethrens.
Son, You are going to die; they are going to bury You. I must Sacrifice You, You must go into the Ground, You must be Planted.
When You are Planted, then You grow again – Resurrection. And then Multiplication will come.
*”The Law of Harvest”; God Himself can’t break it.*
*Now, this “Law of Harvest” has two (2) Branches:*
1. The Law of First Fruit
2. The Law of Tithe.
… They are two (2) Pillars and two (2) Branches of the same River.
*The Secret of “Overflowing Blessings”, the Law of Double Portion Blessings are only find in two (2) Places in the Bible – The Places where God says: Do this and I will bless you so much that there won’t be enough Room to receive it. I read those Places to you this Morning in our Bible Texts (Proverbs 3: 9-10 and Malachi 3:10).
Not too long ago, there were some so many Clever People who are speaking against Tithing, against First Fruits et cetera et cetera.
One of them finally confess to his People – I told you to stop Giving Tithes; I regretted it.
Why? – He broke the Law and God responded and his Resources dried up. He has to close down his Television Program, he couldn’t even get food to eat. Quietly, he repented.
Pastor Adeboye didn’t write the Bible.
They say that “Tithing is Law”. No, Abraham gave Tithe in Genesis 14: 18-20; hundred of years before Moses was born.Moses was the one who brought the Law.
Before Moses was born at all – Hundred of years after, Abraham died; after, Isaac came; then Jacob and then the children of Israel went to Egypt and were there four hundred and thirty (430) years et cetera et cetera. That was before Moses came. Abraham had Paid Tithe.
So, it is not a Question of Law.
And Nobody forced Abraham to Pay Tithe but somehow, there is something in him that told him that I am a friend of God.
And God Himself said: Wait a Minute Abraham; the whole world will be blessed through you.
All over the world now; there are children of Abraham awake this Morning
*And when He is talking about Tithing, talking about First Fruits; He is simply Testing you.
He is simply waiting to see if you will say like Jesus Christ said – Daddy I know that You can do All Things. But not my Will, but thy Will be done!
*We are inside a Year of Unlimited Opportunities!
*I told those of you who are in the RCCG Cross Over Service that “Opportunities will be Mind Bubbling” and it will be for those who will do His Will one hundred Percent (100%).*
Try Him (God) and see!
I will remind you of two (2) Stories quickly in my Life and then it will be time to Pray!
1. In our first year here on this Camp; we are just building the first Auditorium – That was Great then: 100m by 50m.
To roof it, we needed #17,000. And we have some little, little Areas with Area Pastors. And we told them that you build Accomodations for People from your Areas,
So, they were building what Someone called “Chicken Pen” – Drove some sticks into the Ground, roof it. And then build a little wall so that when People are removing their Clothes, People outside won’t see them.
I needed #17,000 to roof the Auditorium and the Area Pastors needed #1,000 to roof their Dormitories.
I was looking for #17,000 and I had only #1,000 and one Area Pastor came for me to give him #1,000 to roof his Dormitories – I didn’t even know how he knew that I had #1,000.
I said that if you don’t get out of here – I am looking for extra #16,000 and you are looking for only #1,000. He saw the way I spoke, so he ran.
As he was running away, my Father spoke to me – Give him the money.
Ha, if I didn’t know His Voice, I would have said to Him – Get thee behind me Satan. I am still trusting You (God) for #16,000 and this one only needs #1,000.
Anyway, I called him back, gave him the #1,000 because my Commander-In-Chief has spoken.
He collected the money and began to gallop away with Joy – I said that it’s not your fault, your Problem is solved and I’m back to Level Zero.
And God spoke to me – He said: Why are you grumbling? There were two (2) Problems before and I used you to solve one (1). And so, it is one (1) Problem left.
And far away in Port, a Woman just collected her House Rent and God spoke to her to take the money to His Son in Camp. And it was exactly #17,000.
God will not break “The Law of Harvest” – I had to sow; I had to put in first. I heard His Voice and I obeyed.
2. I was just having fun with my Daddy when He suddenly asked me – Son, what kind of Pastor will you like to be?
As a Mathematician, I said: Lord, I don’t understand the Question and so I can’t answer.
So, He said: Well, will you like to be the Best or Worst? If I have to choose, there is no Humility in saying that I want to be the Worst and so I said that I want to be the Best.
The Greatest or Smallest? – I want to be the Greatest.
The Richest or the Poorest? I have been Poor and Poverty is not Good.
*I decree in the Name above all names that None of you will die Poor – Amen!*
I said Richest Lord. And He kept quiet.
It wasn’t long after that, that we were in a Meeting not in The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) but in another Ministry and it was Offering Time.
And God said: Son, what kind of Pastor do you said you want to be? – I want to be the Greatest, the Best, the Richest et cetera et cetera.
He said: Will you give me the Biggest Denomination in your Pocket?
And at that time, the Biggest Denomination was #100.
Oh God! Can that be God? He said that it is me and not the devil.
Almost grudgingly, I brought it out.
It wasn’t long after that He said: Can we Double that?
After some time, can we multiply by three (3)?
I don’t need to tell you how much I Give in Offering now!
Somebody was checking through in a Particular Place and saw what I gave in an Offering and he brought it back.
He said: Sir, I hope it is not a mistake? I said what is your Problem? It’s my Signature that is there sir.
Like I said to some of you during the Lers-Go-A-Fishing Program – Look at me today:
1. I am not the Greatest yet but I am on my way.
I am telling you with all Humility – Some fourteen (14) years ago (In 2008); they listed in the Number One Journal in America the List of the Fifty (50) Most Influncier People in the world.
They mentioned only two (2) Men of God – The Pope and your daddy.
2. I am not the Richest yet but I’m on my way.
And there is no where in the world that you can find a Camp belonging to a Church that is anywhere near ten Percent (10%) of the Redemption Camp.
God said clearly – Walk with me Straight and I will walk with you Straight; walk with me crooked and I will show you that I can be crooked too.
Stand on your feet!
*This Year (2023); some People are going to be Blessed beyond Imaginations – Amen !
Are you going to be one of them?
It is not really in the Hand of God but in your hand – There are Laws that He (God) can never break.
So, those of you who has not given your Life to Jesus – If you like, come and surrender to Him now or if you like, keep on Pretending. The Choice is yours!
We are not going to wait for you – The rest of us will talk to God.
Talk to the Almighty God loud and clear and say: Father, I have made up my Mind that I will do Your Will in every way.
Go ahead and talk to the Almighty God!
Those of you who want to give your Life to Jesus Christ; come and surrender to Him.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!
*PRAYER FOR SALVATION
My Father and my God, I want to Thank You for Your Words and I want to give You all the Glory and Honour for these People who has decided to come forward and surrender their lives to You.
Father, Please receive them, have Mercy on them, let Your Blood wash away their sins; save their Souls Oh Lord, give them Genuine Salvation. And from now on, let them serve You till the End.
