THE TITHE: What does the Bible say?

WHAT IS A TITHE? It is 10% of the gross.
The tithe belongs to The Lord. It is sacred. It is not supposed to be touched by us. (Lev 27:30) And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD'S: it is holy unto the LORD

Kadash is a root word that means to set apart, to distinguish, to sanctify, or to hallow. Kadash connotes that which belongs to the sphere of the sacred, and thus is distinguished from the common or profane. Other words that use this root include: sanctified, sacred, consecrated, set apart, holy.

WHAT IS HOLY UNTO THE LORD IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE TOUCHED BY MEN.
i) When man touches the tithe, he gets in trouble.
ii) When man touched the tree of knowledge of good and evil, he got in trouble for touching what was of God: that is how sin entered into the world. That was a type and a shadow of what is set apart for The Lord and man has no business touching it. It is like a tithe.
iii) When Joshua went to conquer the city of Jericho, it was the first city and therefore it was supposed to be burnt and left for The Lord. When Achan took of some of the spoils of the city, he took what was sacred and belonged to God and the whole nation fell under a curse.
Achan had taken the sacred thing....again that which belonged to The Lord.

Taking the tithe is one way we commit a financial iniquity.

WHAT DO WE TELL GOD BY OUR TITHING?

i)   We put Him first and trust Him fully.

ii) We acknowledge He owns it all

iii) We sanctify everything else that He has given to us.

The bible talks of the FIRST being holy unto The Lord.
God wants to be the FIRST in our lives. We shall have no other God but Him. He wants us to seek Him first, keep Him first, give Him first, worship Him first, and always consider Him first.
Matt 6:33 - Seek first His kingdom and righteousness and all other things shall be added unto you.
Proverbs 3:9-10 - Honor God with the first fruits of your increase and He will cause your barns to overflow in plenty.

Everything that is first belongs to God because God is first in everything.  When we get fruits, the first of those fruits are holy and belong to The Lord. As a result, they sanctify everything else. (Rom 11:16): If the first fruits be holy, the whole bunch is holy. And if the root be holy, so are the branches.

Tithing off the top of the gross is one way we sanctify our possessions. Begin to practice tithing and watch God open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that there shall be no room to receive it. He will rebuke the devourer for your sake and He will ensure that your crops do not fail. Then all the people of the earth shall call you blessed because you shall be a delightful land (Malachi 3:10). Do not allow the enemy to steal this blessing from you!
