There is no subject in the Bible more inflammatory and controversial than anything dealing with money. Opinions abound. The tithe as seed has been a predominant teaching for many years. When the revelation of seed faith came back into the body of Christ it seemed that everything became a seed – including the tithe.

If you were in need of a blue suit you would probably go to the shopping mall and look at the different stores until you found the one you wanted. Sometimes I go shopping and just look at what they have and then buy something that really speaks to me.

God has a flow. When we get in that flow things work.

Jesus lived in the flow of God. He said, (in paraphrase), “I only do what I see my Father do and I only say what I hear my Father say.” He also said about the Father, “He does the works.” Jesus never failed, He never went without, and He never even struggled with needs being met for Himself or for His entire team.

We live in a culture obsessed with accomplishment. Those are the types of things that have led to the collapse of the “Enrons” of our time. That spirit of obsession has given license to many to adopt an “end justifies the means” approach to ministry. In his book, The Triumphant Church, Kenneth Hagin said that we must be careful to not let spirits of the world get into the church by yielding to their influence.

In my twenty-five years of ministry I am finding it more difficult to minister in the present culture than at any other time.  Few of the saints and few ministries appreciate the pursuit of the Biblical patterns and the ways of the Spirit these days.
