Tithing – The Secret Prosperous Ingredient in the Wealth and Abundance Recipe!
The Power of Tithing to Tap Into the Source of All Supply!
God is the Source of all supply.
How do we tap into this supply?
We can tap into the abundant Source of all supply
through our giving of tithes.
This takes faith and action, just like prayer takes spiritual and natural steps to connect with God to request His help.
Who Do You Trust as Your Financial Source?
Tithing is a natural activity with a spiritual foundation. It requires faith and action. Believe that God is your source and supply and have faith that He will take care of you financially.
The tithe is our first fruits; the first ten percent of our increase. (Proverbs 3:9) And God tells us to bring all the tithes into the storehouse, which is His house. He even tells us to test Him in this and see if He does not poor out a blessing greater than we can receive. (Malachi 3:10)
Tithing is a step of trust and obedience that God will take care of your finances.
It’s Not About the Money, It’s About Your Heart
It has been said that there are over 2,000 scriptures in the Bible on money. That is a lot to say about money. But get this: The tithe is not ultimately about your money – it’s about your heart. God doesn’t want your money, he wants your heart.
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
— Luke 12:34
Our money is a reflection of who we love. And we can, on purpose, choose where our heart will be by choosing where our money goes. The tithe is about our attitude and honoring God!
Give the Best, Receive the Best
As previously stated, and worth repeating: God is the source of all supply. It’s important that we stop looking at people as our source, and look to God.
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.”
— Psalm 24:1
Tithing is partnering with God and I’m sure you’ll agree there is no better partner to have than God. A sweet deal for sure.
God is the biggest giver and first gave to us freely and in abundance. All that we have came from God, and He wants us to be blessed coming in and going out. The giving of our tithes keeps us tapped into His flow of abundant provision.
David is an encouragement to us in that he prepared with all his might to give. Giving is an act of worship and thanks to the God who provides for us. And think about it: As children of God we have the Holy Spirit living in us and He is not stingy. Our giving is a sign of the Holy Spirit at work in our lives.
Remember: A man’s harvest in life depends entirely on what he sows. God loves a cheerful giver because it shows our heart is right when we give. And as we tithe and give generously, God shows up on the scene and does things money can’t do. He shows us the secrets to unlock wealth and abundance.
May God multiply your faithful giving of tithes and offerings and shower your life with growing prosperity!

The Path To Wealth Book Review
by T.S. Linscott
This book was first published in 1888 with the complete title:
“The Path to Wealth; or, Light From My Forge.”
Revealed within the pages of this
valuable book you’ll find powerful,
timeless teachings regarding God’s money laws…
- A DISCUSSION OF GOD’S MONEY LAWS
- THE RELATION BETWEEN GIVING AND GETTING
- CASH AND CHRISTIANITY
The teachings in this book are provided in a series of ‘talks’ that take place in a blacksmith shop over 100 years ago. The discussions include important insights into monetary principles from God’s Word; which continue to reveal to us today How to Acquire Wealth and Have Financial Success!
In this wealth and financial success book, author T.S. Linscott, shares the dynamic tithing truths that have helped thousands of others discover the ‘secret’ of supernatural growing prosperity.
The following is an excerpt from pages 80-81 of “The Path To Wealth”:
“A good deal of our preaching, our thinking, and even our devotions, either vaporize or spiritualize God’s promises. Our natural unbelief tends to put off the fulfillment of them until we get to heaven or sometime in the future. Unbelief hates literal and present tense promises. But these promises are literal and material; they are for here and now; they are to be enjoyed on earth; they challenge us to a contract or bargain with God.
As stated before, He promises money for money; you pay me a tenth, says God, and I will give you earthly and material blessings. I will give your fingers skill as mechanics; I will incline employers toward you; you shall get the highest wages; strikes shall not affect you; I am with you, and will see that you are provided for.
I will make you prosperous as businessmen; I will incline you where you can make good bargains; I will send the people around to you to buy; while the man next door, who neglects My cause may become bankrupt, this curse shall not touch you. I will look out for your bills when they are coming due; I will see that your bank account is sufficiently large; in a word, I am your partner and will look out for the interests of your business.
And to you thinkers, who earn your living by your brains, I will make your thoughts clear; I will give you the holy impulse to originate ‘thoughts which breathe, and words which burn;’ your productions shall stir men’s hearts; your works shall be in demand; I will make people buy the productions of your heart and brain; only pay me your tenth, and you shall be cared for.
Seed time and harvest shall never fail you farmers; I will bless your crop; I will multiply your stock; the blight and the mildew shall be kept from your farms; remember, I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; I will do to you as I did to them, only remember me as they did.
I will give health to all of you; death shall not take away your little ones; they shall live to a ripe old age; I will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
These are the blessings promised by God in the Bible. Who among this company will this day pledge his tenth to God?” (end of excerpt)
“Are You Tired of Going in Circles Where Your Finances are Concerned?”
In days of economic uncertainty, it is important for everyone to get a working knowledge of truth to prosper.
You can prosper by using God’s spiritual principles in your finances!
The source of all financial abundance is God and with Him there are no limits. Trouble is, too many people are slow to learn the principles that will cause them to excel financially.
Get your thinking clear on how to work them and you’ll no longer use words like recession, poverty, and lack.
In order to receive financial abundance from God, we must do our part. If we do our part, He’ll do His part and meet our needs according to His riches in glory.
Most people don’t like to hear about tithing and it puts them in fear. But you’ll have no problem tithing if you see God as your source of supply.
The tithe is seed money of wealth and is compared to sowing. The more a person gives, the more that person receives. Financial prosperity is one benefit of tithing. It puts us in partnership with God.
We are told to bring the tithes into God’s house and then test Him and see if He does not open the windows of heaven and pour out such a blessing on us that we don’t have room enough to contain it! (Malachi 3:10)
Tithing is a step of obedience and trust that God will take care of our finances. God promises to pour out a blessing to the tither.
I truly believe tithing is a key to living a godly, successful, and prosperous Christian life.
“The Path to Wealth” book has been republished and is now easily available in an affordable print version.
In it many of the common questions people have about tithing are addressed and answered, such as:
- Is Tithing Still For Us Today?
- Who Should Tithe?
- Is a Person In Debt Obligated to Tithe?
- If God is the Source of All Supply, Why Does He Need My Money?
- Where Should the Tithe Be Given?
- How is the Tithe Calculated?
In “The Path to Wealth”, Linscott also points out many of the biblical advantages of tithing.
God put it on my heart almost two years ago to republish this book, and it is my earnest wish and prayer, just as it was of the original author, that this book may be productive of good, and lead many a person to ‘bring all the tithes into the storehouse’ in response to the demand of God.
“Where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”
— Luke 12:34

Manifesting Abundance – The Power of Changing Your Thinking to Manifest Money!
Your Thoughts and Beliefs Hold Great Power to Manifest Money!
requires managing your thinking.
Make no mistake about it;
there is great power in thoughts and beliefs.
So what thoughts and beliefs do you currently hold about money?
Common Negative Thoughts About Money
- It is not good to have a lot of money.
- Rich people really aren’t happy.
- Money isn’t everything and I don’t care about money.
- Money isn’t important.
People who say these things might not care about money, but you can be sure that the landlord does, and the banker, the car dealer, the utility company, etc. A common misconception regarding money relates to its importance. Truth is, who can deny how important money is to any person living in a civilized society and using it as their currency.
Money has a greater influence in our lives than almost any other commodity. It is one of the most talked about subjects in the Bible. Consider how a sudden loss or gain of money affects a person’s attitude to a great extent.
I think you would agree that we all should have a practical understanding of exactly what money is and the laws governing its manifestation. This one individual area of study will not only affect your own life, but the lives of those around you.
Out with the Negative and In with the Positive Money Thoughts
Thinking is the highest function we are capable of. Yet many people fool themselves into believing they are thinking, when often they are just replaying old movies in their mind. It is important to take notice of this and begin choosing your thoughts and developing a prosperity conscious mindset.
Mental awareness of prosperity always precedes manifested wealth. Thoughts will create ideas, which will help you create a plan of action to then go do those things, and put yourself in the position to manifest more money.
“Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” — Romans 12:2
Think of children born into prosperous families; they have been conditioned from birth to be prosperity conscious and think prosperous thoughts. These children only see themselves surrounded by wealth, and they in turn play that out in their adult life with their choices of careers, like minded spouses, and lifestyles. It’s as if they feel it is their birth right and they don’t even entertain thoughts of poverty and lack. Any setbacks are only temporary because they are prosperity conscious.
Unfortunately, the majority of people have not been born into that kind of environment and raised to have a prosperity mindset. The opposite is too often the case and living in a poor environment with poor thinking and poor conversations is the norm.
Anyone can change their way of thinking. It is not always easy, and takes a desire to do so and a lot of effort. But the results from the effort will be well worth it.
Lack and limitation only exists when we give it room in our minds. Opening our minds to prosperity consciousness helps us see money as an obedient servant that we are master over, and that we can tap into unlimited earnings potential.
Remember, that we must have something mentally before we have it physically. So let’s make those private thoughts and conversations in our minds be wealth conscious, and move us to a higher potential.
You can begin to positively affirm:
- I am prosperous and wealthy.
- Money is good and I am blessed to be a blessing.
Just think about it. God created this world full of abundance and has given each of us talents and abilities, far surpassing what we use. With God’s help we have what it takes to be a success. With God there is no lack and He gave us the ability to think. So why not start to penetrate the world of wealth today by using the power of thought to manifest money.
May you use the power of thought to create a life of growing prosperity!

Growing Prosperity – Get Yourself Prepared to Prosper!
Grow Financially as You Grow Spiritually
a process that…
requires starting at the beginning.
This means we have to prepare to prosper.
First we have to lay the foundation…
and then build on it.
Build a Strong Foundation to Prosper
Think about it. You would never try to build a house without first laying a foundation. It doesn’t matter how excited you are to finish the house so you can buy furniture and decorate, you must take time to put down a solid foundation first. Otherwise, you’ll soon find you’re living in a house so unstable, it comes tumbling down.
Now, that’s simple advice, isn’t it? Anyone with a little common sense knows it.
Yet why is it then, that in the spiritual realm, people make that mistake over and over?
We so often get excited when we see a blessing God has promised us in His Word. And we are so eager to have it, that we can find ourselves ignoring the foundational basics of godly living and pursue just that one thing.
This seems to be especially true in the area of prosperity. Out of desperation for a quick financial fix, people often pull a few prosperity promises out of the Bible and try to believe them, but without allowing God to change anything else in their lives.
Then of course, when it doesn’t work, those same people end up disappointed. And many will also then come to the conclusion that it just wasn’t God’s will for them to prosper.
Grow Financially as You Grow Spiritually
In preparing to prosper we need to come to the understanding that it is God’s will for all of His children to prosper.
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.” — 3 John 2
Notice that this verse doesn’t just say ‘I want you to prosper.’ But it says, ‘I want you to prosper as your soul prospers.’ Financial prosperity is tied to the prosperity of our mind, will, and emotions.
We grow financially as we grow spiritually. How can we expect to handle financial prosperity without being spiritually mature? God knows how dangerous it is to put great wealth into the hands of someone who is too spiritually immature to handle it.
“The Prosperity of fools shall destroy them.” — Proverbs 1:32
You don’t have to look far to see evidence of that fact in the lives of people who have acquired financial riches apart from God and His ways. Most of the time, such riches just help people die younger and in more misery than they would have if they had been poor.
Why? Because they use their wealth to sin in greater measure. They often use their money to buy illegal and addictive substances and pay for an immoral lifestyle that eventually destroys them. So, when people gain wealth and use it to sin, it results in doing them more harm than good.
In light of this, it’s easy to see why God wants us to increase financially as we increase spiritually. In order for our prosperity to bring us blessing and not harm, we need to outgrow our fleshly foolishness.
Get Busy Growing and Prosper
“Okay, okay,” you say, “But I need financial help fast!”
Then quickly get busy growing and building your foundation for prosperity.
How? By finding out what God says in His Word and doing it. You see, the foundation of prosperity is a continual lifestyle built on the Word of God. It is doing, thinking, and saying what His Word says.
Financial miracles and breakthroughs can happen at any time, but that doesn’t mean we stop growing spiritually and building on the foundation. Godly prosperity is the result of putting God’s Word, all of it, not just the parts about financial prosperity, first place in life.
Make no mistake about it: Growing prosperity continues when we apply these principles on a daily basis and not just because we want money. We always put ourselves in position for increase when we seek after God and do things His way. Go now and build your foundation, continue to grow spiritually, dare to believe, and you will surely prosper.
May you get yourself prepared to prosper and live a life of growing prosperity!

Expect Abundance – How to Use Expectation to Trigger the Law of Attraction!
Increase the Flow of Wealth Into Your Material World
What are you doing to generate increase?
Wealth will not come into your material world…
until you first expectantly visualize the wealth in your mind.
But what does that really mean?
Before we can begin to overcome the poverty surrounding us in our external world, we need to claim victory over the impoverishment buried deep within ourselves. Prosperity begins with an inward awareness that an unlimited supply abounds within the spiritual realm all around us.
“It’s almost as if there is an invisible reservoir of abundance in the universe that can be tapped if you will just obey certain spiritual laws.”
— Norman Vincent Peale
It is impossible to feel poor with an understanding and consciousness of being surrounded by the infinite God of the universe; a God that never lacks. The lack that we experience in life is simply caused from our own limited awareness.
The Light Bulb Story
There is a story told of a poor couple that moves into a small village and is astonished to discover their new home is lighted by electricity. They had no prior experience with the power and force of electricity and they never saw an electric light before.
After several months, the couple adjusts to this new found discovery when a salesman stops by and recommends they upgrade their 8 watt bulbs with 60 watt bulbs; to better meet their needs. Once the new bulb is plugged in, the entire room is illuminated.
The couple never imagined, in their wildest dreams that the source of this new flood of magnificent light had been there all the time. They didn’t know this abundant increase of light could come from the same current that was feeding their 8 watt bulb.
Plugging Into Abundance with Expectation
The truth is; most of us are even less aware of the power available to us than this couple was of the electric power current. We never dream that the infinite, abundant, current which surrounds us could flood our lives with light more magnificent than the most powerful light bulb.
In order to experience increase we need to plug a larger, more prosperous, expectant idea into the current of the infinite abundance of God. Unfortunately though, most of us strangle our supply with negative energized thoughts of doubt, fear, and poverty; which only cutoff the inflow of prosperity.
Now is the time to change that negative, habitual, pattern of thinking. Remember, the stream of plenty flows toward the expectant mind. We must live by faith expecting to receive.
Firmly establish the desired goal in your mind and live expectant. Expect good things to happen. Expect to be blessed. Imagine already being in possession of wealth and develop the prosperity you seek in your mind first. Know where you are and where you are going; and expect to get there!
Allow your expectation to trigger the attractive force that will help move your desired goals in your direction.
“As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
— Proverbs 23:7
Let the law of attraction help manifest your prosperous thoughts.
Remember: As you think means the innermost thoughts of your heart; which you control. That is what you expect, what you attract, and what you will ultimately receive.
May you live by faith, expecting to attract a life of growing prosperity!

Prosperous Living – Shortcut Your Path to Wealth by Acknowledging the True Source of Abundance!
Who Do You Acknowledge and Trust to Supply Your Needs in Life?
on the path to wealth.
One of the primary shortcuts,
in reaching our destination,
involves acknowledging the true source of abundance.
One Infinite Source
There is only one true source in the universe that holds unlimited supply. God it the true source of all wealth; including financial wealth and spiritual and physical prosperity.
It is important to understand that when we acknowledge God as our source, temporary financial struggles no longer need to dictate our outcome. Why? Because, there are many ways and means that God can use to supply our needs. And His supply never runs dry.
God is the source and everyone else is His instrument. Many people make the mistake of thinking that their job is the source of their supply. But they need to realize that God is the source, and He simply uses their work as a means to let the funds flow to them.
“My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches.”
— Philippians 4:19
Notice it says ‘My God’, not the company you work for. God is your source.
An Invisible Reservoir of Abundance
Norman Vincent Peale talks about an invisible reservoir of abundance in the universe. This is a great image of the abundance of God.
As we continually acknowledge God as the source of our supply, we’ll find that we are divinely guided on our path to wealth. God is able to make a way when there seems to be no way. Realize it is our choice to recognize God’s power and ownership over everything. And remember we are only stewards of what He supplies us.
Putting our faith and trust in a job, a person, or any other income source, has been proven to be a letdown at one time or another in life.
Prosperity is the result of our choice to accept and trust that God’s ways are higher than ours. When we live by His ways, they will guide us on the path to wealth and allow us to tap into the invisible reservoir of abundance…
We will then be like trees planted by rivers of water and prospering in everything we put our hand to. (Psalm 1:3)
Make no mistake about it: We will never go wrong acknowledging God as the source of our supply. However, be fair warned, if we choose not to, we can expect a lot of detours on our path to wealth.
May your eyes always be fixed on God as your source and may your life be filled with growing prosperity!
