I am Excited about the Supernatural Blessings God has for You in 2023. It all begins with God’s First Fruits!
God wants to take you FROM PROMISE… TO PROVISION!
You see, God desperately wants to bless you. It’s true— He will literally take us From Promise to Provision. And one of the keys is a very simple principle He created from the beginning. God gives us tools, principles and a roadmap.
Often it’s not that we are doing something wrong, but in fact not doing enough of what is right! THIS ALL BEGINS WITH HONORING GOD’S PRINCIPLE OF FIRST FRUITS! We put Him first in EVERYTHING! Read on…
First Fruits in Hebrew is “bikkurim” and literally means “promise to come.” And there is ONE who never breaks His promise – God! When you KEEP FIRST THINGS FIRST through faith and obedience, you turn God’s promise into provision…
Because He wants to see you succeed, He has put a principle into place called: “First Fruits.” He wants to see YOU succeed and prosper– but He desires it HIS WAY, not ours… It is about Him, not us.
I go into incredible detail about this in my new book. It is literally a roadmap to get you there. I discuss: What Is A Promise?, What Is Provision?, What Is Your Mindset?, What Is Stewardship?, What Pattern Are You Following?, What Does God Want?, What About Cain and Abel?, The Blessing of the Tithe, First Fruits, Honor, and more…
The Bible references first fruits or first things or devoted things no less than 32 times…
“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your increase” (Proverbs 3:9)…
The first represents the total. All firsts belong to God! and there is a reason why… “Honor the LORD with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow…” (Proverbs 3:9–10 NKJV).
Right now I declare that your obedience to honoring God will cause your barns to be filled with plenty and your vats to overflow in the name of Jesus!
“When you come into the land which I gave you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest” (Leviticus 23:9-10).
This divine establishment of God’s order is actually the root, the foundation that governs the rest.
“For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches” (Romans 11:16 NKJV).
God claims the FIRST of ALL THINGS! It rightfully belongs to Him. When we apply the Principle of First Fruits, we see that all firsts should be given to the Lord: the first of the day, week (Sabbath), month, and the first of our harvest. It is a principle…
Jesus declared, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness… all these things will be added to you,” (Matthew 6:33). God adds the “things” to you when the foundation is in place to be built upon. When we honor God with our FIRST FRUITS, He will unlock everything for the remainder of the year- your 2023 will be A YEAR OF BLESSING AND INCREASE!
You can put God first in every area of your life by:
- PRAYING: Give God your first thoughts in the morning.
- PLANNING: Where do you want to be 365 days from today?
- MAKING AN OFFERING: When you give your first fruits offering, you are planting a seed for the remainder of the year. There is a greater portion that awaits you in honor of your first fruits offering!
As you remember the Lord your God, according to Deuteronomy 8:18, through your first fruits offering, He gives you the power to acquire wealth to establish His covenant. Are you prepared for that?
Each January, I put God first and honor Him with the first of my sustenance by sowing a sacrificial First Fruits Offering. Some years that has been a week, other years a day or two, but there were some years I felt led to sow a month’s wages, that was my personal conviction and I obeyed.
Every year many others join us and sow a First Fruits Offering, but everyone gives their best- It is not that you “Have to”… you can miss your moment and the blessing that comes with it if you choose… but it is that you “Get to!” It is about Honoring God.
I believe what you do with your “first” in the opening days, weeks, and month of 2023 will greatly determine your entire year. This is going to be a year of supernatural favor for you. This is about us putting God First and sacrificing unto Him…
- I challenge you to put First Things First and honor God with a holy First Fruits Offering!
- I challenge you to start activating the Word by offering God your First Fruits as a seed for your harvest in 2023.
- I challenge you to set aside time for him every day. Maybe you feel led to fast for a portion of this first month… possibly setting a prayer/devotional schedule to be alone with Him… And although it is going to unlock unbelievable blessing all around your life, it is first and foremost about honoring God because He is worthy!
As you sacrifice your offering to Him, you set a precedent of what will come. You release a great promise of provision as a result of your obedience. C.S. Lewis wrote; “When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but increased…”
Remember: Everyone is to give their very best offering!
God says in Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three gather in MY name, there am I with them.” Let us be in agreement right now that your 2023 will be a year like never before- that your vats will overflow and your barns will be filled… I am believing… and God is with us!
According to Ezekiel 44, I will raise your offering up as a sacrifice, believing God to pour out His promises through your obedience!
“The best of all the firstfruit and of all your special gifts will be given to the priests. You are to give them the first portion so that a blessing may rest on your household” (Ezekiel 44:30).
In my new book, I show you a roadmap to His promises becoming His provision… Give your very best as a First Fruits Offering and watch God’s unlimited blessings pour into your life and your family. WATCH WHAT GOD WILL DO!
