3 Tithers’ Rights Every Christian Should Know

God wants you blessed! There’s no question about it—God’s will is for His people to prosper and enjoy a life of “always having all sufficiency in all things” (2 Corinthians 9:8, KJV). Why don’t Christians always live this way? The answer is often a lack of obedience and a lack of knowledge. However, when you’re in obedience to God’s Word, as a tither, you are a candidate for prosperity!

But you’re going to have to protect your rights because you have an enemy who wants to steal, kill and destroy everything that belongs to you. Here is something you need to know: Satan has no authority in your life—but he’s an outlaw, so he sure is going to try anyway. Your job? To enforce your rights according to the Word of God.

There are promises in His Word reserved for those who act on it through tithing. Yet, most tithing Christians have not learned how to claim those rights! Malachi 3:10-11 is clear about what a tither can expect to receive from the Lord:

“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” says the Lord of hosts (NKJV).

This verse covers a lot of spiritual ground. There’s a world of revelation waiting to be discovered within these powerful words. And it all starts with the tithe.

上帝希望你幸福!毫无疑问 – 上帝的旨意是让他的子民繁荣昌盛,享受“万事都充足”的生活(哥林多后书9:8,KJV)。基督徒为什么不总是这样生活?答案通常是缺乏服从和缺乏知识。然而,当你顺从上帝的话语时,作为一个标准,你就是繁荣的候选人!

但是你必须保护自己的权利,因为你有一个敌人想偷窃,杀死和摧毁属于你的一切。这是你需要知道的事情:撒旦在你的生活中没有权威 – 但他是一个歹徒,所以无论如何他肯定会尝试。你的工作?根据神的话语来强制执行你的权利。




Tithe simply means “tenth.” To tithe is to give 10 percent of your gross income to the Lord. It is God’s design to increase and prosper His people through the principles of giving and receiving return on that giving (Luke 6:38).

When did tithing begin?

It is amazing how many believers waste their energies arguing whether or not tithing is a New Testament doctrine. Tithing didn’t begin with the Law! According to Genesis 4:2-4, before the Law was ever given to Moses, Abel and Cain brought the firstfruits of their labor to God. Again in Genesis 14, we find that Abraham tithed—before the Law.

But Old Testament tithing was just a shadow of what was to come. Although the Old Covenant saints were blessed through their tithing, we enjoy even greater blessings through our tithing today, because we bring our tithes to a High Priest who is greater than Melchizedek or any other Old Covenant priest (Hebrews 4-8)!

But above all else, tithing is giving honor to God. Proverbs 3:9-10 says, “Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine” (NKJV). It is such an honor and privilege to respect and honor our Provider with such a small gift as the tithe.

That’s why tithing isn’t just a matter of the pocketbook. It is a matter of the heart. So, if you’ve been tithing as a religious routine, out of compulsion or without faith—that’s just bucket plunking. That’s not tithing. One who gives cheerfully is a true tither in the eyes of God (2 Corinthians 9:7). If you’re not a tither, repent and get in on the tithing blessing! 






Tithers’ Right No. 1: God Rebukes the Devourer for Your Sake in Finances
“And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes….” –Malachi 3:11 (NKJV)

If you’re not actively engaged in acting on the Word of God in tithing, you’re missing out on the devourer being rebuked for your sake. It won’t matter how loud you holler and scream at the devil, if you refuse to tithe, then God is not obligated to rebuke the devourer on your behalf.

As one preacher said, tithe money that isn’t devoted to the Lord will just blow up in your pocket. You’ll have to spend it on one crisis after another until it’s all used up. Right after the refrigerator needs repair, the car will break down. Or you will have unexpected medical bills, and on and on it goes.

But the tither has privileges.

One of those is protection from the devourer. He comes to steal your money, your seed, your job and your possessions. And he’ll often get away with it—unless you put a stop to it. So, when lack tries to come in your life, you say “No, you don’t, lack!” If you get laid off you say, “Lord, where’s my better job? Show me where to find a better job. I never go without. I am prosperous. I am blessed. I am a tither. The windows of heaven are open to me.”

Tithers’ rights cover every economic situation—they put you above and not beneath the economy. No recession is going to shut the tithers’ windows of heaven—not even something as severe as the Great Depression.

That’s what Kenneth Copeland’s parents found out when they were first married. Their commitment to tithing delivered them out of what could have been deep financial trouble. They had such a deep understanding of the importance of tithing that they included a commitment to tithe in their wedding vows. Then the Great Depression hit. People all around them were unemployed, struggling and suffering. But Kenneth’s father always had a job. He was blessed and protected. God took care of them through the Depression, and they never experienced the hurt, shame or agony of those difficult times like so many others. They were “always having and always abounding” (2 Corinthians 9:8; 1 Corinthians 15:58) under their tithers’ rights.

That’s the kind of protection you should expect in your finances as a tither. Sometimes, you’ll have to contend for it. If Satan attacks your job or your business, you support God’s rebuke and remind the devil, “You are rebuked for my sake. You’re a liar and the father of it. Now take your hands off my money, my job and my possessions!” Take those tithing check stubs and knock him in the head with them. You show him that receipt from your heavenly account and tell him to turn tail and run the other way. You have tithers’ rights!

Those rights cover your possessions, too. Pastor George Pearsons shared a story about the time when the microwave in his kitchen went out. The clock was going, but it wasn’t working on the inside. It went on for a while until revelation came on the inside of him. He walked up to it, slapped it and said, “Tithers’ rights. In the Name of Jesus, we are tithers, and our stuff works.” And it began to work again!

You should replace your possessions when you want to—not when they try to tell you to. Everything you own should last longer and work stronger than it would in the

“为了你的缘故,我会责备吞噬者……” – 马拉基书3:11(NKJV)



其中之一就是保护者免受伤害。他来偷你的钱,你的种子,你的工作和你的财产。他经常会侥幸逃脱 – 除非你制止它。所以,当你的生活缺乏尝试时,你说“不,你没有,缺乏!”如果你被解雇,你会说,“主啊,哪里是我更好的工作?告诉我在哪里找到更好的工作。我永远不会没有。我很兴旺。我很幸运。我是一个骗子。天堂的窗户向我敞开。“

利益相关者的权利涵盖了每一种经济形势 – 他们把你置于经济之上,而不是经济之下。没有经济衰退会关闭天秤座的天堂之窗 – 甚至不会像大萧条那样严重。

这就是Kenneth Copeland的父母在他们刚结婚时发现的。他们对十分之一的承诺使他们摆脱了可能造成严重财务困境的困境。他们对十分之一的重要性有着如此深刻的理解,即他们在婚礼誓言中承诺十分之一。然后大萧条袭来。他们周围的人都失业,挣扎和痛苦。但肯尼斯的父亲总是有工作。他很幸福并受到保护。上帝通过大萧条照顾他们,他们从来没有像许多其他人那样经历过那些困难时期的伤害,羞耻或痛苦。在他们的权利人的统治下,他们“总是拥有并且总是充足”(哥林多后书9:8;哥林多前书15:58)。


这些权利也包括你的财产。牧师George Pearsons分享了一个故事,讲述了厨房里微波炉出炉的时间。时钟已经过去了,但它没有在里面工作。它持续了一段时间,直到他的内心出现了启示。他走了过去,拍了拍耳语,说道:“有了Tithers的权利。以耶稣的名义,我们是十分之一,而我们的东西也是有效的。“它又开始起作用了!

你应该在你想要的时候更换你的财产,而不是在他们试图告诉你时。你拥有的一切都应该比自然更长久,更强大。这是有利的 – 这是你作为一个标准的权利。
