God Bless you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We hope your 2012 has started off with many blessings from above.

One of the most important topics for us as individual believers to study and understand is our role, actions, attitudes and behaviors relating to our relationship with God.

God's Grace and Mercy Runs Full Circle like Pi knowing no limits.God's Grace and Mercy
Runs Full Circle with
No Limits

Thousands of people come to be born again each year.

They accept Christ as their savior, acknowledge there is a God, our father- and some may even study the Bible a bit to learn more about their spiritual family.

God wishes for us ALL to come to the FULL knowledge of His truth.

Part of that full knowledge means truly understanding what Grace is... and then taking a proactive part of living according to the Word.

To help you understand how to improve and strengthen your walk with God, we start out this year by sharing a teaching to help you learn about Grace and your role and responsibility around it.

The Bible says: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8-9

That verse, among a few others, is where it all begins for a new believer, one who has devoted themselves to following Christ, not where it ends.

Too many Christians get born again, say they are saved then sit down and do nothing else for God. They think they can go through life sinning again. Go breaking the commandments of Christ, following their own selfish desires and wicked whims of the world coming out unscathed.

Read this article to find out more on this subject to learn if you have unknowingly walked away from God's Grace and Mercy .


Tithing, Giving and Abundant Sharing

God will bless you when you are sharing, giving or tithing from your heart.God will bless your sharing, giving or tithing from when done
from your heart.

One of the prayers we frequently hear from people involves asking God to supply increase in finances and blessings.

God wants to supply you with all you need and more, however, to help Him help you, understanding the law of reciprocity (or the law of Give and Receive) is necessary.

There is often a mindset that the adversary puts in the way of people which is "I have so little now to give. If I tithe off of what little I have, there will not be enough for my daily needs". That mindset is a straight out deception from the devil.

God's word is all about putting HIM (God) first, and following His ways for abundance and blessings. Abundance and blessings are not just about our finances. God's word clearly tells us that if we give to Him our first fruits - even if it is very small to start- when we give with a loving and trusting heart, He can and Will bless us tenfold in return.

If one of your prayers or goals for this year is to break the chains of bondage around small finances, ill health, strife and frustration in your life- then this study is for you.

God wants to help you to understand the law of reciprocity. Under the law failure to tithe is robbing God of what is due Him.

In Malachi 3:8-9, God spells out the results when the nation of Israel does not repay Him what they owe: "Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me. But you ask, 'How do we rob you?' In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse, the whole nation of you because you are robbing me."

When we tithe, we receive many blessings from God. "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap" (Luke 6:38). And what blessings were promised to the people of Israel, if they would once again tithe!

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit," says the Lord Almighty (Malachi 3:10-12).

You Can Test God with Tithing

God is really amazing with respect to giving and tithing, in Malachi 3:10-11 He told us that we can test Him in this.

To really learn more about Tithing and how it is one of the actions to do in order to free yourself from the chains and bondage of the adversary- read this article on Tithing and Giving.

Then, walk forth with believing in God- and 'Go Do.' Test God and give Him the chance to really bless you in ways you have never experienced before.

If you have further questions about this subject, contact us with an email and we will be glad to help you study and grow in this area. May God richly bless you as you continue to learn the Bible, grow in the spirit and stand on the truth of God's wonderful Word.

"He which sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or out of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver." 2 Cor 9:6-7
