CLASS 11 – Kingdom Economy (Part Three)
Isaiah 55:10-11 (NKJV)
We should have “bread”, even without sowing.
2 Corinthians 9:10 (NKJV)
God is providing food, clothing, and needs without you sowing!
Matthew 6:25-26 (NKJV)
Philippians 4:19 (NKJV)
Birds do not sow and reap, yet their NEEDS are taken care of; won’t your NEEDS be taken care of without sowing and reaping you of little FAITH?
Galatians 6:7 (NKJV)
Sowing is NOT a command, but tithing was a command of giving back to God what belongs to Him, or first things first.
Malachi 3:8-12 (NKJV)
Tithes and offerings belong to God. They are for the storehouse, or the local church.
This is HOW His Church is supposed to have bread.
Tithe/offering = bread
The tithe/offerings should not be split up between places.
The tithe/offering is the principle of first things first.
Proverbs 3:9-10 (NKJV)
2 Corinthians 8:8-9 (NKJV)
Sowing is not a commandment; however, sowing is how you get RICH!
2 Corinthians 9:6-11 (NKJV)
Sowing is a decision.
2 Corinthians 9:6 (NKJV)
In the Old Testament the firstborn son would receive a double inheritance and would inherit his father’s role as head of the family.
The Firstborn possesses RIGHTS, AUTHORITY, and DOUBLE INHERITANCE.
Colossians 1:15-18 (NKJV)
Romans 8:29 (NKJV)
Hebrews 12:22-23 (NKJV)
Jesus existed before He was born. The birth of Jesus was not Him coming into existence, but the installation of Him as King of the earth!
Jesus was the Father’s Firstborn, but the Firstborn had to be sacrificed if there were going to be more like Him.
The Father sacrificed His authority, rights, and double riches on this earth!
THE FIRSTBORN HAS DOUBLE, BUT THE SACRIFICE OF THE FIRSTBORN BRINGS MULTIPLICATION!
Genesis 13:14-16 (NKJV)
Genesis 22:1-2 (NKJV)
Until Abraham offered his Firstborn, God could not have multiplied his descendants as the stars in the sky!
Sacrifice = to surrender or give up or have a disadvantage for the sake of something else. Can we put our “double” at a disadvantage for more?
WHATEVER YOU PUT FIRST WILL BE DOUBLED.
WHATEVER YOU PUT FIRST AND ARE WILLING TO SACRIFICE WILL MULTIPLY.
Proverbs 3:9-10 (NKJV)
Firstborn – First fruits
Malachi 3:10 (NKJV)
“Try Me now in the law of the First fruits” - God
John 15:13-14 (NKJV)
SACRIFICE IS THE FIRSTBORN OF LOVE!
