After almost three chapters of blistering accusations in Malachi against His people and His priests, the Lord offers a profound challenge to them based on their obedience. And the area in which He challenged them was, of all things, money.
Command: “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house.”
Challenge: “and try Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts.
Promise: “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.”
Results: “And all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land,” says the LORD of hosts (Malachi 3:10, 12).
Do you believe the promise given to them also applies to you? If so, will you accept the challenge to not rob God? And, if not, why?
The following is a study on Malachi 3:6-12.
