OPEN HEAVEN 24 OCTOBER 2020 SATURDAY: GIVING THAT PLEASES GOD II

OPEN HEAVEN 24 OCTOBER 2020 MEMORIZE: Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7

OPEN HEAVEN 24 OCTOBER 2020 BIBLE READING MATTHEW 6:1-4

1. Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

2. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

3. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

4. That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

OPEN HEAVEN 24 OCTOBER 2020 MESSAGE

In assessing our offering, God looks at the motive of the giver. If anyone gives to God for the wrong reasons, He will not accept, let alone reward such giving.

“Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 6:1

No matter how large, offering iII-gotten wealth to God can incur His wrath.

God frowns at people who try to clear their guilt by tithing from stolen funds. He hates sin and anything given by a sinner. Proverbs 15:8 says:

The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is His delight.

God taught me a lesson on my way back from llorin, Nigeria where I had gone to preach some time ago.

I had refilled my car unknowingly with adulterated fuel and it wouldn’t start.

While a mechanic was trying to fix it, the Lord taught me a lesson from that experience.

He told me I can’t accept offerings from many people because their gifts are a mix of clean and unclean sources.

If you add money made from shady means to those from clean sources and then give to God, the dirty money in the mix will contaminate the entire offering and make it unacceptable.

God is displeased with any offering given grudgingly; He will reject such. However, He loves cheerful givers (2 Corinthians 9:7).

Sometime ago, I was at a service in another denomination.

While the programme lasted, I grew tired of the numerous offerings we were asked to give so much that when they called for another donation, I angrily dipped my hand in my pocket to give.

Then God said Keep your money, I am not a beggar.

I immediately realised my mistake, asked for forgiveness and cheered myself up internally before giving the offering

Please God with your offering; give cheerfully.

OPEN HEAVEN 24 OCTOBER 2020 HYMN

BE GLAD IN THE LORD AND REJOICE

1. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice,
All ye that are upright in heart;
ye that have made Him your choice,
And Bid sadness and sorrow depart.

CHORUS
Rejoice!.. rejoice!..
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice!
Rejoice!.. rejoice!..
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice!

2. Be joyful, for He is the Lord
On earth and in Heaven supreme;
He fashions and rules by His word;
The “Mighty” and “Strong” to redeem.

3. What tho’ in the conflict for right
Your enemies almost prevail!
God’s armies, just hid from your sight,
Are more than the foes which assail.

4. Tho’ darkness surround you by day,
Your sky by the night be o’ercast,
Let nothing your spirit dismay,
But trust till the danger is past.

5. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice,
His praises proclaiming in songs
With harp, and with organ, and voice,
The loud hallelujahs prolong!

First time commenting, 1)why is it that the offering (money) contaminate that of the righteous?.
2) If someone is not born again, is that person tithe acceptable?.
3) if someone is not going to church because of he/her work and person is paying tithe & offering online is it acceptable?
I will be glad for answers, thanks

You need to be born again to understand the principles in giving. You need to understand the law of the spiritual life in Christ Jesus and the law of natural life. In the law of natural when you give, you give it out and it’s no longer there again but in the law of the spiritual life in Christ Jesus, giving is receiving because God supplies your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus. Amen. So you need to be born again to understand this principles
