- There are 10 commandments (Read: Exodus 20:1-17). There is a responsibility of man to keep the LORD's commandments. Deuteronomy 28 outlines that there are blessings associated with our obedience and curses for our disobedience.
Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you because you obey the voice of the Lord your God.
-- Deuteronomy 28:1
- A tithe is a 10th of our earnings and is a testimony of our faith in the LORD. We have a choice, and there are outcomes associated with our choice. In Malachi 3:8-10, God reminds us of His order for us to tithe. He has given us His assurance for blessings associated with our obedience and curses for our disobedience.
“Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me. But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you? In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."
-- Malachi 3:8–10
Lord, we repent for breaking Your divine order, and we seek Your forgiveness. We make a commitment that we will choose to obey Your divine law given to us through Your Word, Will and Ways. Holy Spirit, guide, direct and help us to act in obedience to God’s will and purposes; not the pleasures of this evil world and lusts of the flesh. We make a commitment to live in God's divine power as the source of our righteousness and godliness and to remain in right standing with God. Lord, we surrender entirely and comprehensively to You to take full control of our lives. We let go and let God! Lord, You have divine government and Lordship over our lives. We activate the truth of the Word of God to be alive, active and powerful in our lives. Lord, wash us and cleanse with the Blood of Jesus from all our sins, shame, sorrows and sufferings. Blood of Jesus, break the curses associated with our disobedience from our lives and generations, in Jesus name.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and He delighteth in his way.
-- Psalm 37:23
Upon the confession of our faith and repentance of our sins, God has issued a new order over our lives for restoration, redemption and revival. Christ, however, makes the old order obsolete and makes the perfect sacrifice. The old order of barrenness, unfruitfulness, bondage, spiritual death and destruction is expired and outdated, in Jesus name. In this new season, your steps are ordered by the Lord.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].
I decree and declare that October 2017 shall be a month of the manifestation of the faithfulness, covenant promises and all blessings of God associated with our obedience to His perfect divine order. We are directed by the Holy Spirit to be obedient to God's divine order, and our lives shall manifest God's Glory, Greatness and Excellence. We shall taste, see, experience and testify of spiritual growth, divine upliftment, high favour, promotion, deliverance and supernatural breakthrough in all ramifications in the name of Jesus, Amen.
