A Calculator for Testing God
The Bible contains, as it was counted, 3573 promises, which God gave to man. But their fulfillment is solely dependent on faith: "...According to your faith let it be to you" (The Bible, New Testament, Gospel according to Matthew, chapter 9, verse 29). For example, God used wasteful financial crisis of 1998, which touched Ukraine as well, to solve a rather difficult problem of our family, answering our faith in the words of the Holy Scripture: "...All things work together for good to them that love God" (The Bible, New Testament, Epistle to Romans, chapter 8, verse 28).
And if you don't yet have the faith, which appears, as it is written in the Bible, "...of hearing, and hearing by the Word of God"? (The Bible, New Testament, Epistle to Romans, chapter 10, verse 17). In this case, the merciful Heavenly Father invites people to test Him literally with a calculator in their hands: "Bring all the tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house. And test Me now with this, says the LORD of hosts, to see if I will not open the windows of Heaven for you, and pour out a blessing for you, until there is no sufficiency" (The Bible, Old Testament, Book of Prophet Malachi, chapter 3, verse 10).
When in 1991 I made my first attempt to give the tenth part of my salary back to God, in only five minutes He not only returned to me the sum 25 times greater, but also in an amazing way gave me favor in the eyes of people (whom I didn't know and who were very gloomy), and with whom I had to have some business relations.
And at the end a little piece of advice for those who would like to test God and gain His additional blessings - don't make a mistake in choosing the "storehouse" for your tithes (See "One Hundred Dollars and Church").
