This week Pastor Stuart Price talks about the Open Windows of Heaven. God tells us through his Prophet Malachi in Malachi 3:10 " Bring the full amount of your tithes to the Temple, so that there will be plenty of food there. Put me to the test and you will see that I will open the windows of heaven and pour out on you in abundance all kinds of good things." (GNB). The Message Bible says "Bring your full tithe to the Temple treasury so there will be ample provisions in my Temple. Test me in this and see if I don't open up heaven itself to you and pour out blessings beyond your wildest dreams.". Blessings beyond your wildest dreams, who wouldn't want that?
God is talking about His principle of tithing he will open up the windows of Heaven over you and you will be blessed beyond what you can imagine.
We all face many things, and feel; I have come to the end of myself, I can't go on, I give up. But the good news is that you are not alone, because you are a giver you are under the Open Windows of Heaven.
God will rain down good things on your life, the medical report may look bad, but under the Open Windows of Heaven healing is pouring down.
Many are faithful in their giving and because of that they are under the open Windows of Heaven and are living a supernaturally blessed life; they are blessed with good health, marriages, families and relationships, their business's are blessed, or their employment is blessed.
But for some it doesn't feel like the windows are open, they think of their lack in areas of health, finance and relationships, and cry out to God why? I'm a giver and I'm still in lack.
The revelation we hope you will receive from this message is that what you think you will have. If you think blessed beyond imagination you will be. If you think, ponder, meditate on, worry over, live lack you will have lack.
If you are thinking lack, turn it around say "I have everything I need. I am blessed under the Open Windows of Heaven." When you start to think about lack, or a bad report (medial or employment) start saying "I have everything I Need. I am Blessed under the Open Windows of Heaven."
There is a relationship between what you think in your mind and the way you live. If you are constantly worried you will be physically and psychologically stressed. That is why Jesus said not to worry about anything.
Malachi 3:10 is the only place in the entire Bible where God says test me, in the Hebrew test means; investigate: - examine, prove, tempt, try (trial). God is openly telling you that in this area you can test Him.
Blessings cannot be contained or explained. God can send help to you, He will fight for you, you just need to let the seed take root in your spirit. He promises to Open Heaven over you and rebuke the devourer.
Think for just a while about the times He has blessed you, then thank Him for every time.
God can bless without a source. We are told in Matthew that a Angle came to Mary and told her she was with child, but she was still a virgin. In Numbers 20:11We are told how "Moses raised the stick and struck the rock twice with it, and a great stream of water gushed out, and all the people and animals drank." (MKJV) There was no source of water. Proof can be found in Deuteronomy 8:15 "He led you through that vast and terrifying desert where there were poisonous snakes and scorpions. In that dry and waterless land he made water flow out of solid rock for you." What can God do in your life.
In Genesis 1:4 God said, Let there be light and there was light, there was no source for the light except the words He spoke. He said let there be light long before he created the sun in Genesis 1:16.
We all need to stop! Stop looking at what we don't have, thinking about; lack, bad medical reports, broken relationships and start looking at what we do have and start praising God for all you have. Because He is the supernatural God of suddenly.
To conclude a simple explanation of how to open the Windows of Heaven
·Honour the Lord, with your first fruits and tithes
·Live a life that is right in the eyes of God
And see what God will do for you under the Open Windows of Heaven
