Supplying Needs

“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” Malachi 3:10

Tithing was never meant to pay for our entertainment, fancy sound systems, pretty signs and wonderful looking structures, nor was it meant to pay our preacher’s salaries so they can have a comfortable living … The purpose of tithing to is to support the church’s sufficiency (such as paying bills and perhaps the provision of assistance on occasion for its members) Every church ought to have its own food bank and/or monetary treasury for its members to deposit into when they can afford it, and withdraw from when a member or visitor is in genuine need of it … rather than allow the government to take control of our needs, thereby ultimately convincing many people that God can do nothing for them …

Instead there is constant need and greed for more “fun” and use of worldy methods to draw people in. Vacation Bible School has become more like an entertaining time of playing. Many of our kids and neighbors kids are only there for the food and games. The learn nothing because they are not taught with proper tools of learning. They are attracted and distracted by all the puppet shows and jokes and flashing lights and fun videos. There is no Holy Ghost in any of it, neither does it benefit the children’s souls.

I am not speaking against fun and enjoyment or against the need to encourage worship, but sound boards, flashing lights and sesame street like puppet shows DO NOT provide that! You accomplish very little in the Spirit by spending so much money on all the projects and all the equipment. What you do provide is more and more disruption in the church and give the devil a way of leading your children and adults away from the teachings of God’s Word …

Enjoy your time of fellowship and picnics after church, like the old days, reserve service for hearing God’s Word and learning to do Gods will, not for the purpose of fulfilling your own ideas of what you think church should be! God does not need your help. Let the Spirit do its work!
