How to validate God’s word in your finance [INTRO. Part I]- Rev. Dr Obi Peters

 

2ndService: [Sunday 8am] Milk service

Text: Mal 3:1-9, I Peters 2:9, Exo 25:1-3, Job 42: 7-10, Exo 30:15

Declaration: I see wonderful creatures. I see containers of virtue, billionaires and millionaire; I see happy families and healthy men here.

I see you manifesting glory; I see your life becoming what God says you are.

Until you know who you are you will remain a story teller. Your secondary opinion cannot change the wonderful work of God. In the midst of your enemies you shall excel.

Offering has become a subject that many of us do not care about in church!

How to get God to come down and discuss with you by offering; not by sacrifice nor by prayers. Balaam offered an offering that made God come down but God can not curse Israel because they are His people.

People in church have neglected offering. They have reduced offering to a practice of abuse and an insult to God. Whenever offering is mention, men look for small things to offer to God because they do not understand.

The sign of rejection in God’s word is the thing you do thinking you are wise but you are only robbing God!

Unfaithfulness in offering can rob one of his Blessings.

 

..You have robbed ME in tithe and in offering.”

                                                                [Mal 3:8 kjv]

Everything that works in the kingdom works by covenant. For the blessing of Abraham to be on you for a possession, you must continue in the practice of what your Father Abraham practiced before God.

No man under the covenant can suddenly become a victim!

“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he [is] like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: And he shall sit [as] a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.” [Malachi 3:1-4 KJV]

Who are the sons of Levi?

The sons of Levi are the priests of God.

“But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:” [I pet 2:9 KJV]

It is from one man that we have a nation. So, what you produce will determine how far you’ve gone and how well you’ve done. The covenant of Levi is extended to you by extension. The days of old are gone, our day is now. What we do with it now will determine what the future will be. What we do with our new generation is determined by what God has for us.

Your offering has the ability to move God to fight against your oppressor!

 “And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in [his] wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger [from his right], and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.” [Malachi 3:5 KJV]

Your offering is like an exchange for your calamity. When you give God an offering in service, you have given Him an exchange for your soul.

Whose idea was offering?

“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering. And this [is] the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,” [ Exodus 25:1-3KJV]

God said they should bring gold, silver and brass because He knew their value never depreciates in the market.

“Our offering is our ultimate service and worship to God”

When you have closed service for the day, your offering is what tells God whether you are qualified nor not. If your measure of offering is 2000 naira and what you are giving to God is 1000, then I’m sorry for you. When you give God a rejected offering, how will God fight against your oppressors when your offering can’t even move Him?

A man that prepares quality venison is a man that enters his vision without struggle!

Your offering is what opens the mouth of God. The mouth of Isaac could not open until there venison. God wants to taste your meal before He will speak and grant you open heaven. Your offering to God shows your humility. Your offering to God can be a wave offering.

There is something your offering sparks for you in the mouth of God. When you give an offering that appreciates in value, you will keep appreciating. If you want to be an international, step up in you offering.

What an offering is-

  1. Offering is as old as creation
  2. Offering is God’s idea
  3. Offering is not given
  4. Offering is beyond the pastor and the priest
  5. Offering is not helping the church
  6. Offering is a show of honour, respect and allegiance to the one you worship
  7. Offering is a command
  8. Offering links humanity to divinity
  9. Offering is not a religious right to complete church services.

Your offering must have these 3 things:

  1. must consider your God
  2. must consider your person
  3. must consider itself

Any offering that must command God’s attention must first understand who God is.


Your offering to God is a revelation of how you see God. What you did not say with your mouth, only by your offering, God has heard your heart.

A son honoureth [his] father, and a servant his master: if then I [be] a father, where [is] mine honour? and if I [be] a master, where [is] my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name? Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the LORD [is] contemptible. [Malachi 1:6-7 KJV]

The offering you give to God is a voice, it tells God of your personality.

Your offering is a revelator of who you are. It tells God where you have placed Him. Every offering must consider the man that gives it. You don’t give God an offering by complaining or with an offence in your heart.

When you come before God to give an offering and there you remember you have a quarrel with you brother yesterday, Jesus said you should leave that offering in the altar and go back and amend with your brother first. If you don’t do that, what you gave is not offering; you just dashed your offering.

God does not honour men in the church by their title; He blesses men by spiritual authority.

“And it was [so], that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me [the thing that is] right, as my servant Job [hath]. Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you [after your] folly, in that ye have not spoken of me [the thing which is] right, like my servant Job. So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite [and] Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the LORD commanded them: the LORD also accepted Job. And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.” [Job 42:7-10KJV]

There is a measurement God uses to measure everyone’s offering whether you are rich or poor.

The rich and poor are equal in the sight of God. Anything that man can not give makes that man a slave under it!

“The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when [they] give an offering unto the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.” [Exodus 30:15KJV]

Prayer of Confession;

Father, before I give my offering today, that man or woman that I hold something against, Lord, I free my heart. I forgive them today. Father Forgive and accept my offering today.

Prayer of Commitment:

Father, today, I make a choice, my offering will end my captivity.
