KCM -Tithers’ Right : The Devourer Will Be Rebuked in Your Family
“And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes….’” –Malachi 3:11 (NKJV)
Did you know when God said He will rebuke the devourer for your sake, it includes more than money? As a tither, you have rights that extend beyond the financial realm— you have the promise that God will rebuke the devil from devouring anything in your life.
The family of Pastor Mark Barclay learned this truth a few years ago when tragedy tried to strike. The family had gathered at Mark’s daughter and son-in-law’s home for a party and picnic. After a time, they noticed that Mark’s 9-year-old granddaughter had not been seen in quite a while. As they looked for her, they saw her at the bottom of the pool. Her hair had caught in the suction drain and she couldn’t get loose.
Her dad jumped in and pulled her out, but she had drowned and wasn’t breathing. The paramedics came and began to declare her deceased. But before they could speak, Mark’s son-in-law, the little girl’s father, shouted at the top of his voice, “No you don’t! I claim my tithing rights! The devourer has been rebuked for my sake! You take your hands off my child!” He continued walking around the pool shouting, “Tithing rights! Tithing rights!”
Within minutes, the little girl sat up and was completely fine. The paramedics insisted on taking her to the hospital. When they arrived, the doctor said, “Where’s the patient?” The paramedic pointed to the little girl. He said, “You?” She said, “Yes! Jesus just raised me from the dead!” Hallelujah! Tithers’ rights.
The devourer has been rebuked by God for our sake in every area of our lives—including our health, our unborn children or our right to bear children (Malachi 3:11). All we have to do is enforce it.
We are declaring by faith the Tither’s Rights regarding our families, health, finances, marriages, increase, whatever is devouring our life and theirs.
