The Hebrew year 5781, on our calendar year 2021, means “to widen your mouth in silence.” That your life is a sign of worship – God knows the worship of your heart, and in this time – as you are silent in battles in the natural, the worship that comes forth will be your weapon, and God will restore, deliver, and give you victory! Strongs Concordance shows the number “2021” (hotsen) means: a weapon of war. This is a year to worship in all we do…
I declare your worship will be a weapon against the attacks of the enemy. I proclaim that every act of worship will bring you prosperity and abundance for your year- It all begins with honoring God with His First Fruits as instructed in His Word.
We have to enter 2021 strong! Often, it’s not that we are doing something wrong but not doing enough of what is right! THIS ALL BEGINS WITH HONORING GOD’S PRINCIPLE OF FIRST FRUITS! We put Him first in EVERYTHING – it is our worship!
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 His people who honor Him succeed, He has put a principle into place FOR YOU called: “First Fruits.”
He wants to see YOU succeed and prosper! …but He desires it HIS WAY, not ours. It is all about Him, not us. The Bible references first fruits or first things or devoted things no less than 32 times…
“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)…
“Honor the Lord with your substance (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). BLESSINGS flow through your WORSHIP!
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! 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- and I stand in agreement with you that 2021 will be A YEAR OF UNPRECEDENTED BLESSING!!
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! It all begins with your obedience…
As you remember, or worship 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.
I challenge you to put First Things First and honor God! I challenge you to start activating the Word by offering God your First Fruits as a seed for your harvest in 2021. I challenge you to set aside time for him every day. Maybe you feel led to fast for a portion of this first month… 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.” ACTIVATE IT! This is your year.- 2021.
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).
Give your very best as a first fruits offering and watch God’s unlimited blessings pour into your life and your family. BELIEVE and WATCH WHAT GOD WILL DO! I believe your holy act of silently laying your First Fruits Seed down at the altar right now, in worship, is a weapon of war against the enemy…
I want to bless you this season when you give your very Best First Fruits Offering! With your best First Fruits seed today, I will rush to you my brand-new for 2021, 4-Disc series and digital download: “First Things First: The Principle of First Fruits.”
