TOPIC : BENEFITS OF GIVING FIRST FRUIT OFFERING
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Leviticus 10, Leviticus 11, Leviticus 12, Acts 11, Acts 12, Acts 13
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Exodus 23:15-19 (KJV)
15 Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)
16 And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.
17 Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord God.
18 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread; neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain until the morning.
19 The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk.
MEMORY VERSE: “All the best of the oil, and all the best of the wine, and of the wheat, the firstfruits of them which they shall offer unto the Lord, them have I given thee.” – Numbers 18:12
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES: Faithful, cheerful and obedient givers will never lack any good thing from the Almighty God.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP: Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY: As from today, your faithful obedience shall bring you unimaginable blessings and unequalled prosperity, in the name of Jesus
The Almighty God has several benefits for obedient believers who give their first fruit willingly and cheerfully. Dearly beloved, here are some of the benefits:
First, the Lord God will give you good health and sound mind. Isaiah 33:24 that states that none of the inhabitants of Zion shall say I am sick will be fulfilled in your life. Second, you will experience and enjoy dominion prosperity, thereby becoming a channel of blessing to others. Third, you will experience uncommon promotion and lifting in all areas of life. Fourth, God will command others to serve and bless you. Fifth, you will leave great inheritance for your children’s children. Sixth, God will favour and protect you supernaturally.
The first fruit will activate other blessings for you. Angels of God will walk with you and lead you; God will be an enemy to your enemies; there will be no miscarriage or infertility in your land; you will enjoy long and fruitful life, and unlimited blessings will be your portion.
Some years ago, a brother listened to my message on first fruit offering. He had been jobless for a long time. Then he got a job, but he was borrowing money to pay transport fare to work. The practice in his place of work was to pay the first three months’ salaries in bulk at the end of the first month. He heard the sermon on first fruit offering around the time that he received the bulk salary.
He gave the whole of the three-month salary as first fruit offering. He ignored the devil who was telling him to take one month salary out of it. Immediately the service ended that day, he received a phone call from his boss and it changed his life. His boss told him that the managing director had resigned. Surprisingly, the brother was offered the same position without hesitation.
When he got to work the next day, he got a bigger surprise when he learnt that his entitlements for the new position included a house, a car and a driver along with other allowance. What a sudden and mind-blowing divine intervention!
Beloved, testimonies of supernatural turnaround will be your portion, as you give your first fruit to God this year, in Jesus’ name.
