Things To Remember

•Jericho would be the first city the Israelites would conquer.
•Because Jericho was first, it was ‘the devoted thing’.
•Everyone in the Israeli army believed God’s promise except a man named Achan.
•Achan’s faith failed.

•God could not tolerate a violation of his law.
•We don’t ever really break a law; we violate laws and pay the consequences.
•God has undeniably set in place natural and spiritual laws that have immediate repercussions for those who do not show a respect for them.
•God’s law of first things is your insurance that God will rebuke the destroyer and break the curse over your life.
•If you ever lose sight of the promise of God, you will be tempted, as Achan was, to grab the tangible ‘now’ in lieu of the future promise.

•God is a Creator, not a consumer.
•By faith, Abraham had given Isaac to God, becoming qualified to be multiplied through Isaac, thus fulfilling the promise God had given him.
•Sin no longer requires death for redemption. Jesus died once for everyone, and if the destroyer sees Jesus’ blood applied to your life, he must pass over you!
•Why must it be first? Because when it’s given first it breaks the curse of destruction off of the remaining 90%, releasing it to be used for its best purpose!

•Tithe is given first in faith to guarantee God that he deserves the first place because of who He is, not what He provides.
•It may be ten percent but if it is not the first it doesn’t count as tithe, it is just an offering.
•Abel brought an offering of the firstborn, but Cain brought only an offering of some!
•Abel put God first, Cain did not.

•The order of that which is given to Him clearly defines His place in your life.
•When the first is given, it buys back (or redeems) all that remains from the curse of destruction.
•It is not an issue of heaven or hell. it is an issue of success or failure.
•It is in keeping what belongs to God and denying the provision and protection of Lordship that is the curse.

•When we put him first, He reverses the curse of the devourer and rebukes him for our sake, because He is Lord.
•God has established laws and perimeters that He operates within, and He will not violate those laws.
•The choices we make concerning our time and the dispensing of our finances are two of the primary ways that we show God His place in our lives.
