The Abraham Covenant
Christians have been debating this argument for a very long time and I have attempted to study both sides of the argument. Should a Christian tithe since we live in the NT? After many years of struggle and studying this topic, I have come to the conclusion based on my own personal testimonies after 30 years of following Jesus.

I have tithed for many years and then there have been many times as a single full time father, when I did not have money to tithe. I have seen the grace of God and His blessing in both circumstances. I have made it a practice to study and memorize OT scripture (God's conditional promises) to help me prosper in my business. I have many testimonies to the proof of Abrahamic promises that renewed my way of thinking and daily activities to achieve success in this cursed world of Satan. My belief is that we are to bring the Kingdome of Heaven to earth as God commanded in the Lord's prayer. The Bible promises of God are all conditional.
My conclusion... I love to tithe to God out of an act of worship (not a legalistic tax approach) thanking Him for my provisions from Him. I also believe in the Abrahamic promises of God. I have seen first hand and up close God's promise stated in Malachi 3:11 "And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field," Says the Lord of hosts. I personally believe in tithing and a monthly first fruit offering for the richness of blessings in God as Abraham experienced, but when I come up short... God's grace is right there for my peace.

Satan's three cords of bondage must be broken:
The Spirit of Religion | The Spirit of Poverty |The Spirit of Infirmity

An example of how to speak God's promises into our lives

We have been living in very challenging times for most of us and probably our biggest challenge has been provisions, not just in America but abroad. To live in the Abraham covenant is to speak God's promises into our situations. It is a game changer. Just start with one verse and memorize it and then grow from there with additional verses to strengthen your renewed mind.


​1.  As Christians we are grafted into the Abraham Covenant and we are expected to partake in the blessings of being Abraham's seed. We are to prosper according to the promise from God to Abraham and his descendants.

Romans 11:17 (NKJV)
And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, 

​Genesis 12:1-3 (NKJV)
12 Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. 2 I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Galatians 3:29 (NKJV)... And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

2.  We can speak the promises of God's word into our financial challenges (other challenges as well).  Say these verses out loud to yourself frequently and watch God supernaturally change your circumstances. Pray these verses over others as well prophetically.

1 John 3:8 (NKJV)
The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.

If they obey and serve Him, They shall spend their days in prosperity,

But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. 9 You are cursed with a curse, For you have robbed Me, Even this whole nation. 10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it. 11 “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” Says the Lord of hosts; 12 “And all nations will call you blessed, For you will be a delightful land,” Says the Lord of hosts.
