Deuteronomy 3 : 23 – 7 : 11

Moses Pleads to Enter

23 “I pleaded with Adonai at that time, saying, 24 ‘O Lord Adonai, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your strong hand—for what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do deeds and mighty acts like Yours? 25 Please! Let me cross over and see the good land across the Jordan—that good hill country and the Lebanon.’

26 “But Adonai was angry with me because of you, so He would not listen to me. ‘Enough!’ Adonai said to me, ‘Do not speak to Me anymore about this matter. 27 Go up to the top of Pisgah, look around to the west and the north and the south and the east, and see with your eyes—for you will not cross over this Jordan. 28 But commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he will cross over before this people, and he will enable them to inherit the land that you will see.’ 29 So we stayed in the valley opposite Beth-peor.

Bnei-Yisrael Must Listen and Obey

4 “Now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and ordinances that I am teaching you to do, so that you may live and go in and possess the land that Adonai the God of your fathers is giving you. You must not add to the word that I am commanding you or take away from it—in order to keep the mitzvot of Adonai your God that I am commanding you. Your eyes have seen what Adonai did at Baal Peor, for Adonaiyour God has destroyed from among you everyone who followed Baal Peor. But you who held tight to Adonai your God are alive today—all of you.

Haftarah Reading

Isaiah 40 : 1 – 26

Comfort, Proclaim Good News

40 “Comfort, comfort My people,” says your God.
Speak kindly to the heart of Jerusalem and proclaim to her that her warfare has ended,
that her iniquity has been removed.
For she has received from Adonai’s hand double for all her sins.
A voice cries out in the wilderness, “Prepare the way of Adonai, Make straight in the desert a highway for our God.[a]

Every valley will be lifted up, every mountain and hill made low, the rough ground will be a plain and the rugged terrain smooth.
The glory of Adonai will be revealed, and all flesh will see it together.”
For the mouth of Adonai has spoken.

A voice is saying, “Cry out!”
So I said, “What shall I cry out?”
“All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
The grass withers, the flower fades.
For the breath of Adonai blows on it.
Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades.
But the word of our God stands forever.”[b]

Get yourself up on a high mountain,
you who bring good news to Zion!
Lift up your voice with strength, you who bring good news to Jerusalem!
Lift it up! Do not fear!
Say to the cities of Judah:  “Behold your God!”
10 Look, Adonai Elohim comes with might,
    with His arm ruling for Him.
Behold, His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.[c]
11 Like a shepherd, He tends His flock.[d]
He gathers the lambs in His arms carries them in his bosom, and gently guides nursing ewes.

Prophet
messianic Brit Chadashah Reading

Luke 22 : 13 – 38

13 So they left and found just what Yeshua had told them, and they prepared the Passover.

The Seder in the Upper Room

14 When the hour came, Yeshua reclined at table, and the emissaries with Him. 15 And He said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 16 For I tell you, I will never eat it again until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”

17 And when He had taken a cup and offered the bracha, He said, “Take this and share it among yourselves. 18 For I tell you that I will never drink of the fruit of the vine from now on, until the kingdom of God comes.”

19 And when He had taken matzah[a] and offered the bracha, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body, given for you. Do this in memory of Me.” 20 In the same way, He took the cup after the meal, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you. [b21 But look, the hand of the one betraying Me is with Mine on the table. [c22 For indeed, the Son of Man is going as has been predetermined; but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!”

23 So they began to discuss among themselves which of them it might be who would do this thing.

Matthew 23 : 31 – 39

31 So you testify against yourselves, that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers! 33 O snakes, you brood of vipers! How will you escape the condemnation of Gehenna?

34 “Because of this, behold, I’m sending you prophets and wise men and Torahscholars. Some of them you will kill and execute at the stake, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city. 35 And so, upon you shall come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berechiah,[a] whom you murdered between the Temple and the altar. [b36 Amen, I tell you, all these things will come upon this generation.”

Holy Temple to Be Destroyed

37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem who kills the prophets and stones those sent to her! How often I longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! 38 Look, your house is left to you desolate! [c39 For I tell you, you will never see Me again until you say, ‘Baruch ha-ba b’shem Adonai. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’”[d]

Mark 12 : 28 – 34

Love Ends the Argument

28 One of the Torah scholars came and heard them debating. Seeing that Yeshuahad answered them well, he asked Him, “Which commandment is first of all?”

29 Yeshua answered, “The first is, ‘Shema Yisrael, Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai echad. Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One. 30 And you shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ [a31 The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]There is no other commandment greater than these.”

32 “Well said, Teacher,” the Torah scholar said to Him. “You have spoken the truth, that He is echad, and besides Him there is no other! [c33 And ‘to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, and with all the strength,’[d] and ‘to love the neighbor as oneself,’[e] is much more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”

34 When Yeshua saw that he had answered wisely, He said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And no one dared any longer to question Him.

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!
