    Devarim: The Words that Moses Spoke

    1 These are the words that Moses spoke to all Israel across the Jordan—in the wilderness, in the Arabah opposite Suph, between Paran and Tophel, Laban, Hazeroth and Di-Zahab. It is eleven days’ journey from Horeb by way of Mount Seir to Kadesh-barnea.

    Now Moses spoke to Bnei-Yisrael, according to all Adonai had commanded him for them—in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, after he had struck down Sihon king of the Amorites who lived in Heshbon, and Og king of the Bashan who lived in Ashtaroth and Edrei.

    Across the Jordan in the land of Moab, Moses began to explain this Torah saying, Adonai our God spoke to us at Horeb saying: ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Turn, journey on, and enter the hill country of the Amorites and all their neighbors, in the Arabah, the hill country, the lowland, the Negev, and by the seashore—the land of the Canaanites and the Lebanon as far as the great river, the Euphrates. See, I have set the land before you. Enter and possess the land that Adonai swore to your fathers—to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob—to give to them and to their descendants after them.’[a]

    Bad Report and Poor Response

    “I spoke to you at that time saying: ‘I am not able to bear the burden of you by myself. 10 Adonai your God has multiplied you—and here you are today, like the stars of the heavens in number.

    11 “‘May Adonai, God of your fathers, increase you a thousand times as many as you are, and may He bless you just as He has promised you!

    Haftarah Reading

    Isaiah 1 : 1 – 27

    1 The vision of Isaiah son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah:

    A Nation Sick With Sin

    Listen! Heavens, and hear, earth,
        for Adonai has spoken: “Sons I have raised and brought up, but they have rebelled against Me.
    The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its manger, but Israel does not know, My people do not understand.”

    Oy, a sinful nation, a people weighed down with iniquity, offspring of evildoers,
        sons dealing corruptly!
    They have abandoned Adonai.

    They have despised Israel’s Holy One.
    They have turned backwards.
    Where will you be struck again, as you stray away more and more?
    The whole head is sick, the whole heart faint.
    From the foot to the head there is no soundness.
    Wounds, bruises and raw sores:
        not pressed, nor bandaged, nor softened with oil.
    Your land is desolate;
    your cities are burned with fire;
    your fields, strangers devour it in your presence—a desolation, overthrown by strangers.
    So the Daughter of Zion is left as a sukkah in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
    Unless Adonai-Tzva’ot had left us a small remnant,[a] we would have been as Sodom,
        we would have been as Gomorrah.
    10 Hear the word of Adonai, you rulers of Sodom!
    Give ear to the Torah of our God, you people of Gomorrah!

    Mark 14 : 1 – 16

    Anointed for Burial

    14 Now it was two days before Passover and the Feast of Matzah. The ruling kohanim and Torah scholars were searching for a way to grab Yeshua by stealth and kill Him. “But not during the festival,” they were saying, “so there won’t be a riot among the people.”

    And while Yeshua was in Bethany at the house of Simon ha-Metzora, reclining at the table, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive oil of pure nard. Breaking open the jar, she poured it over His head. But some got angry and said among themselves, “Why was this fragrant oil wasted? It could have been sold for over three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor!” And they kept scolding her.

    But Yeshua said, “Leave her alone. Why do you cause trouble for her? She’s done Me a mitzvahFor you always have the poor with you, and you can do good for them whenever you want; but you won’t always have Me. She did what she could—she came beforehand to anoint My body for burial. Amen, I tell you, wherever the Good News is proclaimed in all the world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”

    10 Then Judah from Kriot, one of the Twelve, went out to the ruling kohanim to betray Yeshua to them. 11 They were delighted when they heard this and promised to give him money. And Judah began looking for a chance to hand Him over.

    Acts 9 : 1 – 21

    Saul Turns from Murder to Messiah

    9 Now Saul, still breathing out threats and murder against the Lord’s disciples, went to the kohen gadolHe requested letters of introduction from him to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any men or women belonging to the Way, he might bring them as prisoners to Jerusalem.

    As he was traveling, approaching Damascus, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. Falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”

    “Who are You, Lord?” Saul said.

    “I am Yeshua—whom you are persecuting. [aBut get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”[b]

    The men travelling with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one. [cSaul got up from the ground—but opening his eyes, he could see nothing. They led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. For three days he could not see, and he did not eat or drink.

    10 Now there was a disciple named Ananias in Damascus. The Lord said to him, “Ananias.”

    He said, “Here I am, Lord.”

Tithes and Offering

Tithes and Offering

CBN.com – The Law of Reciprocity

 

As Pat Robertson stated in his book, The Secret Kingdom, Christ's admonition to "give and it will be given to you" defines a remarkable spiritual principle. It can also be called the law of reciprocity, which is quite evident in the physical world: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Smile at another person, and he'll probably smile back at you. Be critical of others, and they'll respond in kind. As you give, you will receive. Give generously, and you'll receive in like measure.

Why Should We Tithe?

Since God owns everything — "the cattle on a thousand hills" and all there is — it might seem that He doesn't really need our tithes and offerings. He doesn't need them, true, but we need to give them. For, in instructing us to tithe, God is helping us to understand the law of reciprocity.

In addition, failure to tithe means we are actually robbing God of what is due Him. In Malachi 3:8-9, God spells out the results when the nation of Israel does not repay Him what they owe:

"Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me. But you ask, 'How do we rob you?' In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse — the whole nation of you — because you are robbing me."

When we tithe, we receive many blessings from God.

"Give,and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap" (Luke 6:38).

And what blessings were promised to the people of Israel, if they would once again tithe!

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.Test and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit," says the Lord Almighty (Malachi 3:10-12).

We are also told that when we give to others, we give to God:

"He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for what he has done" (Proverbs 19:17).

The Importance of Being Earnest

Yet, we should give not only because God expects us to. Our sincerity in returning to God a portion of His bounty is equally important. We're told:

"Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver" (II Corinthians 9:7).

The apostle Paul also tells us that we receive according to the way we give:

"Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously."

Luke likewise admonishes:

"For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

However, we're warned against making public our acts of giving:

"Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness' before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven" (Matthew 6:1).

An offering

An offering on the other hand is that what comes out of our access, it is anything, beside, above, or beyond our giving in tithes. When our first fruits (the tithe) is given it stands above or beyond the test of time and before the blessings of God. Within Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries we stress that Tithes and Offering is between you and God, it is not something WE require. We however have seen in our own lives and that of others the blessings that God bestows upon them that are joyful and faithful givers.

God's Outpouring of Blessings

When we're generous to Him and to others, God rewards us in a very generous fashion.

"And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written, ‘He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.' Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion,and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God" (II Corinthians 9:8-12).

What Should I Do Now?

In the Old Testament, the Jews were instructed to take their tithes" to the storehouse," which was the temple — the center of religion for the entire country. Today, since the Body of Christ has so many manifestations (churches, colleges, television and overseas ministries, hospitals, relief agencies, etc.), people can choose where their tithes should go.

It's important that you give your tithe to the place that feeds you spiritually. If you're a church member, you should honor your own church with consistent financial support, since membership entails responsibilities as well as privileges.

Done on a regular basis, giving serves as a constant reminder that God is our provider. You alone will decide how to account for your stewardship of the financial blessings God gives you — and how to honor Him with your tithes and offerings. May you be richly blessed as you are obedient in your stewardship to Him!
