And Melchizedek King of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the Most High God. And he blessed him, and said, “Blessed be Abrahm of the Most High God, possessor of heaven and earth: and blessed be the Most High God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all. (Genesis 14:18-20).
Abraham was the first person recorded in the Bible to give tithes. He gave tithes to Melchizedek over 430 years before the Law was given to the children of Israel, proving that tithing existed before the Law.
The Bible tells us Abraham is the father of faith, and that all those who are of faith are children of Abraham, and we belong to Christ Jesus! “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29).
Abraham demonstrated his faith by giving tithes of all to Melchizedek, who was a manifestation of Christ to him. The Bible admonishes us to walk in the steps of the faith of father Abraham (Romans 4:12). When you give your tithes, you’re walking in his steps of faith. You’re affirming yourself as a child of faith and a seed of Abraham and you can expect the blessings of Abraham to be yours also.
Instead of giving your tithe just because you were commanded to do so, which is good, start giving it with understanding and by revelation. Begin to act by faith in giving your tithes. Rejoice and thank God every time you give it. Then you can enjoy the full benefits of it.
Dear Heavenly Father! You have made me a partaker of the Abrahamic blessings through Our Lord Jesus Christ. I present my tithes to You as a token of my covenant relationship with You and the connection to the Abrahamic blessings. Therefore, the devourer is rebuked from my finances, every form of sickness is destroyed and failure is completely removed from my life, in Jesus Christ Name! Amen!
