When You Give, Let it Go!

GIVING

“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” Colossians 3:17

When we give, God says it’s to be with NO STRINGS ATTACHED! – “But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:” (Matthew 6:3) The idiom “let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth” speaks of true humility and brokenness in our giving – and it’s “more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35)
It’s witchcraft to use your giving against someone you gave to. This is an inner evil, an iniquity that must be repented of and denounced. If you are going to give – just let it go! It’s wasn’t yours in the first place. You own nothing – it’s all God’s. “all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.” (1 Chronicles 29:14) ….

Of Matthew 6:3 William MacDonald writes:

“When the follower of Christ does a charitable deed, it is to be done in secret. It should be so secret that Jesus told His disciples ‘let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:’ Jesus uses this graphic figure of speech to show that our charitable deed should be for the Father, and not to gain notoriety for the giver. This passage should not be pressed to prohibit any gift that might be seen by others, since it is virtually impossible to make all one’s contributions strictly anonymous. It simply condemns the blatant display of giving.” William MacDonald, Believer’s Bible Commentary, p. 1223

Here’s a wider view of the passage:

mathew
“Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
Mat 6:2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Mat 6:3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
Mat 6:4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.” Matthew 6:1-4

How We Know the Bible is the only Holy Book

Jesus-angry-look

This is an essential component of divine truth imperative for a sound foundation.

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:” Isaiah 46:9-10

ONLY GOD COULD KNOW “THE END FROM THE BEGINNING.” (ISAIAH 46:9-10) PLEASE MEDITATE ON THIS. THE WORD OF GOD IS SEEN TO BE JUST THAT BECAUSE IT FORETOLD IN DETAIL BEFOREHAND MANY EVENTS THAT HAVE COME TO PASS JUST AS THEY WERE SPOKEN HUNDREDS AND SOMETIMES THOUSANDS OF YEARS BEFORE THEY HAPPENED. FOR EXAMPLE: THE EXACT TOWN THE MESSIAH WAS TO BE BORN IN WAS FORETOLD (BETHLEHEM) AND HE WAS (MICAH 5:2), THAT HE WOULD BE MIRACULOUSLY BORN OF A VIRGIN AND HE WAS (ISAIAH 7:14), THAT HE WOULD BE CALLED EMMANUEL AND HE WAS AND IS (ISAIAH 7:14), THAT HE WOULD BE BETRAYED FOR 30 PIECES OF SILVER AND HE WAS (ZECHARIAH 11:12-13), …. MORE ON THE CHART BELOW.

The LORD told us in His Word that not one of His promises, including the prophecies of His and our Messiah, would ever fail. They are as sure as life and the One who gave it.

“Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail … ” Isaiah 34:16

No other “holy book” can make this claim (foretelling the future and their exact fulfillment) which makes them false, counterfeit.

THESE PROPHETIC PROMISES AND THEIR FULFILLMENT WOULD BE STATISTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE UNLESS THEY ORIGINATED FROM GOD WHO TELLS THE END FROM THE BEGINNING.

More prophecies and their fulfillment on the chart below. Please pore prayerfully over the list of these prophecies and their fulfillment and please help others to know this amazing, divine phenomenon.  This will be the most foundation-building study of your whole life. This is essential in being truly grounded in Christ.
