"Aunty, please take this money for your upkeep". Lanre said as he squeezed 10,000 Naira into Aunty Bose's hands
" Haaa! Thank you my son, this is a lot of money o, only me? Thank you o"
Lanre got into the car and sped along. She watched the car turn the corner and then she hissed and went into the house. "So this small boy is mocking me abi, because my own children are not doing well, he decided to show off by giving me 10,000, he thinks I am a beggar abi, I will show him not to mess with me, that his money thats making him pompous will soon finish"
Aunty Bose went into her room and brought out a statue carrying a calabash, the statue had palm oil smeared all over it. She began to chant incantations and then she said "Lanre, this is the money you have given me, I am placing it before ogun, let all things that have metal begin to work against you".
As she finished speaking, her eyes began to scratch her and then she couldn't see, she started using her hands to find her way back outside when she tripped on her slippers, she landed on a sharp cutlass, Baba Kunle, her husband put at the corner and she began to bleed, she cried for help but nobody could hear her until she bled to death. It was when Baba Kunle came back in the evening that he discovered her body. He began to cry, he knew his wife was depressed but he never thought she could commit suicide.
The bible says in Malachi 3:11 (ESV) I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the LORD of hosts.
A devourer is anything or anyone who wants to stop the good thing God is doing in your life. God calls Himself, the LORD of Hosts in this verse, it refers to when God is going to battle. The Yoruba bible translates it as "Oluwa Awon Omo Ogun (God of War).
As a tither, whoever messes with the money you pay tithe from or the job or business you get the tithe should get ready for violence.
The word 'rebuke' in Hebrew according to Strong's Exhaustive Concordance means to 'corrupt or reprove'. God says He will contaminate the life of your devourers! If God is facing you in battle, who would you run to? Isaiah 45:9 (GWT) How horrible it will be for the one who quarrels with his maker. He is pottery among other earthenware pots.
Whatever job or business you FAITHFULLY tithe from cannot go down! Even when you have challenges that may seem to take you down, you will realise it was to take you higher!
The tithe also activates the blessing in Genesis 1:28 (NLT) Then God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground."
Don't read all those articles telling you that the tithe is old testament. The tithe was BEFORE the law, it is a spiritual principle! He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying.
