We are all given a responsibility to be good stewards of God’s Kingdom and all of its resources. Money is a vital part of those resources. The Word of God speaks a great deal about money and how we are to distribute it in the Kingdom of God. Jubilee International Ministries is not a storehouse where God's money and resources lie dormant; we are a distribution center, giving into His Kingdom for His glory!
Malachi 3:10-12 -- "10 '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. 11 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; 12 'And all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land,' says the Lord of hosts."
The tithe is the Lord's and is a holy thing. It is an obligation we owe. There are commanded blessings for being faithful in paying the tithe. The tithe is the circumcision of your money. It sanctifies and literally marks your money for blessing and increase.
Luke 6:38 -- "Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you."
When you give an offering you are laying a foundation for God to command men to bless you.
Proverbs 19:17 -- "He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord. And He will pay back what he has given."
2 Corinthians 9:6-8,10 -- "But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 10 Now may He Who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness."
Alms giving is sowing seed outside the church into the life of those who have a need. It is ministering to the poor both physically and spiritually. Outreach ministries, benevolence and missions would come under this kind of giving. This giving is like sowing seed. You receive a return based on the kind and amount of seed you sow. This giving releases unlimited supply.
Giving is an important aspect in the life of a born-again believer. If you would like to pay your tithe or make an offering to the Lord online, please click the link at the top of the column to the right.
