The House

Malachi 3:10-12

It begins with the house

At least 4 things happen when we invest in miracles.

1. “That there may be food in My house”

Then God encourages a test!

2. Immeasurable blessings

God isn’t wasteful. In John 6:12 Jesus said, “Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted.”

3. Protection of your harvest

Galatians 6:7 and many other verses remind us that whatever we plant we will receive in harvest.

But the parable Jesus tells in Luke 8:4-8 also reminds us that many things can happen to the harvest.

Deuteronomy 28:38-40
This would happen to the harvest if Israel didn’t keep its partnership with God, because He is Lord of all harvests!

To the rich who gain their wealth in ways contrary to what God says is honest and just: Micah 6:15

Haggai 1:6-8
This was when Israel neglected their responsibility to THE HOUSE.

Yet in Malachi 3:11 God says to those who test Him with their tithes that He will not allow their harvests to be lost!

4. Conspicuously blessed!
