Malachi was the last prophet in the Old Testament
he'd asked the people were they aware of the message that God sent
that the blessing of the Lord brings wealth but no trouble is added to it
to give to God as He gives to you in the nature of the Holy Spirit
it's not just about monetary gains it's about being blessed by the Lord
so that one can experience the full totality of one's inheritance in all accord
so what good is it to have great wealth if you in turn have terrible health?
what good is it to have a high paying job yet when it comes to tithing its God you rob?
what good is it to have a fabulous home if you live in it all alone?
the blessing of the Lord is the answer to all life's anxiety
the blessing of the Lord will give you abundant prosperity

God's blessing can open any door and snatch the victory out of the jaws of defeat
God's blessing is given exceedingly and can make your life complete
for to get God's blessing is to gain God's favor
is to do as God desires in terms of your behavior
to follow God's master plan to repent and atone
to live a full and happy life in the spiritual zone
to be uplifted, to be joyful, no longer anxious nor uptight
to turn it all over to God by walking in His truth and light
not to feel defeated, not to feel depleted not to feel torn down
to be like Malachi and me now standing on higher ground

by letting go of one's fear knowing God will be right there
by removing any and all sin that's destroying you from without and within
many think that to worship God is to give up all worldly fun
but when you live in the spirit you will in turn see how it's done
by being a more loving human being following the word of God
to no longer have a rebellious nature within your heart
no longer angry, no longer  stressed
because you know by God you're blessed
eager to release the tithes of God from all that you've earned
knowing that by the Lord God you will be blessed in return

my personal testimony is that for a job to God I did pray
and then God opened a window for me one day
not only did I get the job but the bus that takes me to work
drops me off every Sunday morning right in front of my church
to be like Malachi and me living a life of blessed prosperity
now standing under that open window where the blessing of the Lord overflows
being showered with the goodness and grace from the God I worship and know
so if you want to be like Malachi and me
give to God as He gives to you for all eternity
