Scripture: Matthew 23:23, Hebrews 7:1-8
Hebrews 7:1-8 says, “…or this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated ‘king of righteousness,’ and then also king of Salem, meaning ‘king of peace,’ without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually. Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils. And indeed those who are of the sons of Levi, who receive the priesthood, have a commandment to receive tithes from the people according to the law, that is, from their brethren, though they have come from the loins of Abraham; but he whose genealogy is not derived from them received tithes from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises. Now beyond all contradiction the lesser is blessed by the better. Here mortal men receive tithes, but there he receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives.” According to Hebrews 7, it is obvious that Jesus lives today and is still receiving tithes today. Matthew 23:23 says, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.” When Jesus said, “These you ought to have done without leaving the other undone”, He was putting His seal of approval on the tithe and telling us that the tithe is New Testament. In this passage Jesus said the people had majored on tithing and He approved of that. He made it clear that tithing is still in effect and that it is the foundation of our authority in the financial realm today. It is backed up in the book of Hebrews which says, “Christ still lives and receives tithes today.” Our Covenant-Keeping God did not break tithe and it is still New Testament. It is our access point to the authority to spoil. The judicial authority to dry up the provision of the wicked and pray them into financial downfall is a God-given authority that Jesus bought and paid for. Praying in tongues will guide the way as we enter this realm. Walking out the action of giving and using our prayer language through the process is essential if we want to move toward spoiling the wicked for Kingdom purposes. The earth groans and travails for the saints to arise. It is about time we get in sync with the Holy Spirit and start praying and see where God leads us in doing our part to defund evil. God is ready. I trust we are getting there quickly! The Judicial anointing opens up new vistas heretofore unopened! God used the threat of judgment to gain Nineveh’s repentance. Is the judicial anointing the key to winning cities? If so, praying in the Spirit is our path in!
