“BEFORE ABRAHAM NO ONE PAID TITHE; SO WHO TAUGHT HIM TITHING?” – PASTOR ENENCHE DEMYSTIFIES HOW THE BIBLICAL ABRAHAM LEARNT TITHING
EXPLAINS THE PURPOSE OF THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN
IF YOU KNOW GOD, YOU WILL BELIEVE HIM. YOU HAVE NOT KNOWN HIM SO YOU CAN’T BELIEVE HIM. IF YOUR FAITH IS FAILING ASK HIM TO REVEAL HIMSELF TO YOU
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW GOD FOR ANYTHING, PLEASE TRY AND KNOW GOD FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR FAITH BECAUSE YOUR FAITH IS KEY TO YOUR SURVIVAL
THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IS KEY TO AUDACIOUS FAITH AND CONFIDENCE IN GOD; IT IS KEY TO THE SECRETS OF GOD
WHEN YOU SEE A MAN WHO IS AUDACIOUS, BEHAVES LIKE FEAR DOES NOT EXIST, THERE IS SOMETHING HE KNOWS OTHERS DON’T KNOW
EVERY TIME YOU GO CLOSE TO GOD, HE WILL SHOW YOU THINGS THAT HE DOESN’T SHOW ANY OTHER PERSON
THERE IS A PRESSURE ATTACHED TO THE PRECIOUS! EVERYTHING PRECIOUS CARRIES A PRICE.
THERE IS A DESPERATION THAT PRECEDES REVELATION. IF YOU WANT REVELATION, PAY ATTENTION
THERE IS NO ATTENTION WITHOUT TENSION. IF YOU WANT REVELATION, BE AT AT-TENSION
– Dr Pastor Paul Enenche on “THE PRODUCT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD” at the North America Revival Fire Conference 2022 || Day 3 Morning Session.
6. The knowledge of God is key to audacious Faith and confidence in God: when you see a man who is audacious, behaves like fear does not exist, there is something he knows others don’t know. In 2 Timothy 1:12, if you know Him, you will believe Him. You have not known Him so you can’t believe Him. It’s hard to believe strangers.
You want to find out the secret of my belief? It is rooted in my knowledge of him. In the course of my knowledge of him, I understudied his ability. When I got close to him, I got to know his capability – what He is able to do and what He can’t do.
On the basis of that, I am over convinced that anything I commit to Him He can keep. If your faith is failing ask him to reveal Himself to you. “I am not fully persuaded because I don’t know you as I should. My faith is still shaky. There are times I am confident and at times I am afraid because I don’t fully know you.”
They sent you a threat of death and you are afraid of a witch is because you don’t really know Him. If you knew Him, you will realize that a man in Downtown Chicago on the 60th floor of a skyscraper has no need to be afraid of a snake on the ground floor because if you know that you are seated in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus… (Ephesians 1:21), it is a waste of fear.
If you don’t want to know God for anything, please try and know God for the sake of your faith because your faith is key to your survival. Hebrews 10:38.
You may be cut short before your time if your faith is not alive, not working. What I am sharing with you today, this Scripture I am reading to you, I am saying it for the first time.
7. The knowledge of God is key to the secrets of God: those who know God and who are known by God, they have access to His secrets. My wife knows me and I know her and there are information of each other that we are privileged to have by virtue of knowledge.
I can’t see a stranger today and tell him everything about my family. Job 29:4-5. Intimates share secrets. Job 36:22. Every time you go close to God, He will show you things that He doesn’t show any other person.
You remember Abraham? How many of you remember the first place in the Scripture that tithe was mentioned? With Abraham in Genesis 14. Before then was there any mention of tithe? Was there any law about tithe?
The Law of Moses came 430 years later where the tithe was mentioned as a matter of decree and commandment. Before Abraham no one paid tithe; so who taught him tithing? There was no book for him to read it from.
This is what happened: in the course of His walk with God and God had told Him about the blessing, he said, “You know what my friend? This blessing that I told you about there is a secret to it and it is called the tithe. You know when I created man in the Garden of Eden, I gave him every fruit to eat but there was one I asked him not to eat.
That was to be consecrated.” So what was Adam meant to do with it? (You may ask) “Oh, he was to gather it. Every time I appear he will say Lord, this is what you said I shouldn’t touch – have it. And because he ate what I asked him not to eat, he lost the garden.
So, Abraham for us to work together, a portion of what you have belongs to me. Always surrender it.”
What I am telling you, you won’t find it in any book. I am just giving you a privilege.
I have not told any other person before you because I want you to be the father of the blessing.
I’ll like somebody here to get ready, God is about to show you something, something that will be so new, so fresh, and a business idea, a wisdom, a revelation. Something that is so new, so fresh, people will be wondering how did you know, where did you read it from, how did you see this thing, as a result of your relationship, a result of your walk with God. He will show you something you have not seen before, you have not read before.
That is why it is a disaster to be addicted to tradition, because it excludes you from revelation. You are not open to see anything or hear anything that God will say to you because you are married to tradition!
Stand up on your feet everybody!
Something is happening, something is happening!
Abraham saw it from no book. He saw it from God. The Book came 400 years later, but Abraham was already walking in it.
Are you hearing what I’m saying here today? While God was giving me this word, I almost exploded myself! I am personally ushered into a realm.
“I’m about to do something concerning Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham. I’m just telling you this because we are together, nobody is aware of this. And don’t tell anybody for how.
But I know you have a nephew there, his name is Lot, so just try and see how you can rescue him.”
God was telling Abraham. Can I do a thing and not tell my friend Abraham? Lot was not a good boy, I will talk about him later, if we have time.
He was very disrespectful of his uncle. He behaved in very rude ways for the man who brought him out and made him into something. Was striving with his uncle.
But God said, For your sake Abraham, I will save him and I’m telling you this, you won’t hear it on CNN. It’s not on Fox News. You won’t find it anywhere. CNN won’t tell you about that.
But something is about to happen to someone!
I’ll take it from here in the evening.
How do I know God?
“Then shall we know, if we press…” Hosea 6:3. If we press, if we follow on to know. There is a pressure that is attached to the precious.
Everything that is precious carries a price. There is a pressure! Then shall we know if we follow… If we come to the point where you say Lord I agree that I don’t know you. I need to know!
There is a desperation that precedes revelation. You want revelation, you pay attention.
And there is no attention without tension. At-tension. You have to be at tension. There are people who are too casual to see anything.
There are times I’m preparing a message; my wife can’t talk to me. If she greets, she may not expect a reply. And she knows that there is no challenge. She knows that nobody loves wife like myself; but for that moment, I am at tension.
-Lift up your hands, lift up your hands! I want to know you, I want to know you. This evening we are going to have an anointing session. If you need God to release His power on a bottle of oil for you, feel free. We are going to have a session for you.
Tonight something will explode, something will explode!
Now lift up your hands and your voices and begin to speak to God right now. Speak to God right now. Speak to God right now. Speak to God right now.
-Lift up your right hand say Father I am asking for the rain of revival by your knowledge. I am asking for supernatural strength by your knowledge. I am asking for spiritual power from your knowledge. I am asking for the transformation of my life through your knowledge; that you will position me in responsibility by your knowledge.
Father, step me into the realm of audacious faith by your knowledge. Help me Lord to access your secrets through your knowledge in this season, in the name of Jesus!
