Then will the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasing to the Master as in the days of old and as in ancient years.
Then I will draw near to you for judgment; I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against the false swearers, and against those who oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, and who turn aside the temporary resident from his right and fear not Me, says the Master of hosts.
For I am the Master, I do not change; that is why you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.
Even from the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My ordinances and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says the Master of hosts. But you say, How shall we return?
Robing The Almighty Creator Of Our Beings ….?
Will a man rob or defraud the Almighty Creator? Yet you rob and defraud Me. But you say, In what way do we rob or defraud You? [You have withheld your] tithes and offerings.
You are cursed with the curse, for you are robbing Me, even this whole nation. [Lev 26:14-17]
Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Master of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. [Mal 2:2]
And I will rebuke the devourer [insects and plagues] for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine drop its fruit before the time in the field, says the Master of hosts.
