2 Chronicles 31

1 Now when all this was finished, all Israel that were present went out to the cities of Judah, and brake the images in pieces, and cut down the groves, and threw down the high places and the altars out of all Judah and Benjamin, in Ephraim also and Manasseh, until they had utterly destroyed them all. Then all the children of Israel returned, every man to his possession, into their own cities.

And Hezekiah appointed the courses of the priests and the Levites after their courses, every man according to his service, the priests and Levites for burnt offerings and for peace offerings, to minister, and to give thanks, and to praise in the gates of the tents of the Lord.

He appointed also the king’s portion of his substance for the burnt offerings, to wit, for the morning and evening burnt offerings, and the burnt offerings for the sabbaths, and for the new moons, and for the set feasts, as it is written in the law of the Lord.

Moreover he commanded the people that dwelt in Jerusalem to give the portion of the priests and the Levites, that they might be encouraged in the law of the Lord.

And as soon as the commandment came abroad, the children of Israel brought in abundance the firstfruits of corn, wine, and oil, and honey, and of all the increase of the field; and the tithe of all things brought they in abundantly.

And concerning the children of Israel and Judah, that dwelt in the cities of Judah, they also brought in the tithe of oxen and sheep, and the tithe of holy things which were consecrated unto the Lord their God, and laid them by heaps.

In the third month they began to lay the foundation of the heaps, and finished them in the seventh month.

And when Hezekiah and the princes came and saw the heaps, they blessed the Lord, and his people Israel.

Then Hezekiah questioned with the priests and the Levites concerning the heaps.

10 And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok answered him, and said, Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat, and have left plenty: for the Lord hath blessed his people; and that which is left is this great store.

11 Then Hezekiah commanded to prepare chambers in the house of the Lord; and they prepared them,

12 And brought in the offerings and the tithes and the dedicated things faithfully: over which Cononiah the Levite was ruler, and Shimei his brother was the next.

13 And Jehiel, and Azaziah, and Nahath, and Asahel, and Jerimoth, and Jozabad, and Eliel, and Ismachiah, and Mahath, and Benaiah, were overseers under the hand of Cononiah and Shimei his brother, at the commandment of Hezekiah the king, and Azariah the ruler of the house of God.

14 And Kore the son of Imnah the Levite, the porter toward the east, was over the freewill offerings of God, to distribute the oblations of the Lord, and the most holy things.

15 And next him were Eden, and Miniamin, and Jeshua, and Shemaiah, Amariah, and Shecaniah, in the cities of the priests, in their set office, to give to their brethren by courses, as well to the great as to the small:

16 Beside their genealogy of males, from three years old and upward, even unto every one that entereth into the house of the Lord, his daily portion for their service in their charges according to their courses;

17 Both to the genealogy of the priests by the house of their fathers, and the Levites from twenty years old and upward, in their charges by their courses;

18 And to the genealogy of all their little ones, their wives, and their sons, and their daughters, through all the congregation: for in their set office they sanctified themselves in holiness:

19 Also of the sons of Aaron the priests, which were in the fields of the suburbs of their cities, in every several city, the men that were expressed by name, to give portions to all the males among the priests, and to all that were reckoned by genealogies among the Levites.

20 And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the Lord his God.

21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

  1. Vs 1 When we get right with God, and are truly seeking his will, we will rid our lives of those things that are not pleasing to him.
    Vs 21 when we seek god with all our heart and mind, our life will prosper.

  2. v-12 And brought in the offerings and tithes and the dedicated things faithfully: over which Cononiah the Levite was ruler, and Shimei his brother was the next.

    Our Great GOD delights in a cheerful and faithful giver that HE recorded the names of these faithful men. This let’s us know that no sacrifice escapes the attention and reward of our GOD.
    GOD specializes in taking our gifts and multiples them to benefit HIS Kingdom. No gift is too small or too great HE judged our gift according to our ability and attitude and not so much the amount.
    GOD will exceed our giving, as we obey and depend on HIM. This obligates GOD to care for all our needs. ” According to all his riches in glory”
    GOD help us to learn the secret of giving. It will richly bless us so we can bless others too.

  3. Its A Heart Condition

    In this way, King Hezekiah handled the distribution throughout all Judah, doing what was pleasing and good in the sight of the LORD his God. In all that he did in the service of the Temple of God and in his efforts to follow God’s laws and commands, Hezekiah sought his God wholeheartedly. As a result, he was very successful. (2 Chronicles 31:20, 21 NLT)

    The spiritual condition of your heart is reflected in how we prosper.

    God blesses those whose hearts are pure,
    for they will see God. (Matthew 5:8 NLT)

    The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith. (1 Timothy 1:5 NLT)

    If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work.
    Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. (2 Timothy 2:21, 22 NLT)

    Whoever loves a pure heart and gracious speech
    will have the king as a friend. (Proverbs 22:11 NLT)

  4. 31:20-21
    The Bible describes King Hezekiah as a leader who “did what was good and right and true before the Lord his God. And in every work that he began…he did it with all his heart.” Hezekiah paid the price to get the job done. But what is the price of commitment? 1.Change of lifestyle 2.Loneliness 3.Faith in God 4.Criticism 5.Hard work and money 6.Daily discipline 7.Constant pressure

  5. 5 And as soon as the commandment came abroad, the children of Israel brought in abundance the firstfruits of corn, wine, and oil, and honey, and of all the increase of the field; and the tithe of all things brought they in abundantly.

    6 And concerning the children of Israel and Judah, that dwelt in the cities of Judah, they also brought in the tithe of oxen and sheep, and the tithe of holy things which were consecrated unto the Lord their God, and laid them by heaps.

    2 Corinthians 9:7

    King James Version (KJV)

    7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

    It is biblical to pay your tithes FIRST when you get your paycheck or an incease in your pay. If you are not giving God your FIRST ten percent you are robbing God. I have learned in the past that if you don’t pay your tithes first God will get what belongs to him weather it be your car breaking down, dishwasher broke, etc……So I have learned to give God his first and God will take care of his people.

  6. Illegitimate worship was removed from all Israel, and the system for proper worship was reinstated. All of vs1 explains how Israel took place alongside Judah in knocking down and obliterating these idols and ‘sacred pillars’ which were wedging a gap between their relationship with God. Praise the Lord for the veil which masked their view of sin, had convicten them enough to tear down these idols! This is one great step towards the Lord and leap toward blessings.

    Hezekiah’s reforms parallel the work of David and Solomon in vs21 “and in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, in the law and in the commandment, to seek his God he did it *with all his heart*. So he prospered.” He saw that when he did everything God commanded with a pure heart that his people would be blessed. Not only was Judah blessed but also was the northern kingdom of Israel, his evangelism during feasting paid off. He reinstated the obedience to Gods command of 10% tithing and offering which “they laid in heaps” and when he saw it he blessed the Lord. He praised the Lord for softening their hearts and providing good soil for these children of God to grow and show their faithfulness to God and his law. God blessed it, and God will bless us when we freely give with a pure heart our tithe and ofering as well for vs10 says “since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat and have plenty left, for the Lord has blessed His people; and what is left is this great abundance.” Hallelujah! An important vs is 7 “In the 3rd month they began laying them up in heaps, and they finished in the 7th month.” This tells me that they kept giving, it wasnts a one time thing just to see if they would get an instant miracle or blessing. They recognized that it wasnt about ‘themselves’ for they kept giving, they were commited and obedient. I believe this was the recipe for blessings to ‘heap up’. Keep giving for God has a blessing in store.

    Abundant Living

    4 Moreover he commanded the people that dwelt in Jerusalem to give the portion of the priests and the Levites, that they might be encouraged in the law of the Lord.

    When the people’s hearts were cleansed and when the man of God taught (and commanded) the people about giving, there was an abundant flow of blessings for everyone.

    Thank The Lord we have a Pastor who teaches and also expects us to give unto The Lord.

    Baptists move over, the teachings and blessings of God have the Boat of Alexandria sailing through Fort Worth heading for POFW.

  8. Encourage our Pastor

    4 Moreover he commanded the people that dwelt in Jerusalem to give the portion of the priests and the Levites, that they might be encouraged in the law of the Lord.

    Our tithe and offering helps so our pastor does not have to worry about finances but keep his mind in the WORD OF GOD. Our pastor is a great man of God, he keep us fed spiritually, he takes the word and with his passion for God makes it understandable, breaks it down so we can hear from the Lord. Can you imagine how is going to be when he does not have the need of a new building in his mind? He is going to be able to take the Word and is watch out from that moment on. There is no doubt that we are in the last days and the harvest is white and ready; but we need to be in intersession prayer, supporting our pastor, and his vision for Ft. Worth.

    Acts 2:18-19 “18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

    19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:”

    God puts EVERYTHING in a specific order and if you take your time to read this passage it sounds to me like WE the servants and handmaidens should be in intersession prayer with prophesies, prayers in the Spirit (speaking in tongue) and then as an answer to the prayers He will shew wonders & miracles. So lets not forget to pray, to share the word of God, to teach the truth, 1 Faith, 1 God, 1 Baptism.

    Pick up your sickle & go harvest.

  9. When we get the sin out, and reestablish our submission to authority, commitment to the kingdom, and relationship with God, He makes us to prosper in all we do!

    21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

    All in!

  10. All in!

    At first I was captured by the bringing in of the tithes; the first fruits. How can the bible be clearer about when/how to deal with tithes? However, when finishing the chapter the last verse lit me up! “He did it with all his heart” Awesome! Have we ever came to church because we were expected to by others? Have we handed over tithes and offerings to stay out of trouble with Pastor? I have on both accounts. However I am learning that doing “these things” with all my heart for the Kingdom; not for duty, makes all the difference.

    It feels different giving freely. I have heard it said and the bible is plain: God does not want your money! That seems hard to believe with so many scriptures dealing with giving. What I have learned is God wants your intentions. He wants you to, well, want to.

  11. 20 And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the Lord his God.
    21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

    God wants is to give Him our all. Not withholding anything. The good, the bad, all of it. For He will take it ,bless it, and use it for His Glory. The king sought God in all His ways, and jd was blessed for that. I find it amazing how as Christians we all go throught this phase of thinking that” God doesn’t want all of me” mentality. Yet that’s exactly what He wants from us. To give Him our all.

  12. This chapter illustrates correctness. The children of Israel that were present desired too do that what was right, which was shown when they destroyed the high places. Hezekiah also wanted to do what was right as such he commanded the people to give, which they did accordingly and therefore there was abundance for all. One must turn from the ways of the world and towards Jesus, and his Word, if one wants to please him and receive his blessings. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  13. Commitment is a “charm” with the Lord. I pray that when I do unto the Lord, I will be committed, with whatever task He asks of me. Sounds this passage can be for everyone that follows God and that is called according to His purposse.
    I hear you Lord when you “call”….thank you for hearing me….what a friendship that anyone can have whrn your closest friend leaves you Jesus wont.
    PSALM 4:1-
    Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness; thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

  14. The king contributed some of what he owned for burnt sacrifices, including the morning and evening burnt sacrifices and the burnt sacrifices made on Sabbaths, new moon festivals, and at other appointed times prescribed in the law of the Lord. -2 Chronicles 31:3NEV

    Once again in today’s chapter we see that the king is leading in giving to the work of God. Not only should we give of our time and energy but of the material substance that we own. In order to fulfilled the requirements of the law of the Lord the people had to give.

    The people willingly gave to the work of God.

    And as soon as the commandment came abroad, the children of Israel brought in abundance the firstfruits of corn, wine, and oil, and honey, and of all the increase of the field; and the tithe of all things brought they in abundantly. -2 Chronicles 31:5

    Hezekiah sought the Lord with all his heart and held nothing back.

    And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered. -2 Chronicles 31:21

  15. 21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

    Working in the Kingdom should be our lifestyle. We find here Hezekiah ruled and was blessed, and so the blessings trickled down to the people he ruled. He purposed in his heart to live according to the commandments of the Lord as he had been taught in time past. He cleaned up and rid the nation of the idols, and showed the people by example how to offer sacrifice appropriately, to celebrate, praise and worship the true living God and now to bring their tithe to the house of the Lord. In everything he did, he did it unto the Lord, with all his heart, and God prospered and blessed him.

    If we will have the same attitude in everything we do for the Kingdom of God, do it with excellence and a desire to please the Lord, it will be come our nature and God will prosper and bless us.

    It’s not a habit, or a duty, It’s our life, it’s what we do.

  16. And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok answered him, and said, Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat, and have left plenty: for the Lord hath blessed his people; and that which is left is this great store. (2 Chronicles 31:10 KJV)
    There is more than enough for all, when we decide to give what rightfully belongs to the house of the LORD. Then will we never ever lack in the body (POFW/CHURCH/COMUNITY).

    But this only begins when we OBEY the voice of GOD, and the PASTOR!
    And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. (Acts 4:35 KJV)
    Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. (Luke 6:38 KJV)
    POFW…… We haven’t seen nothing yet!!!
    We are in the midst of great revival. And the need is great here in our cities!! There are people that are hungry, people who have physical needs for them and there children. And we will/are meeting needs as if yesterday. Yes we’re meeting their physical needs now, but most importantly we are meeting their spiritual needs! Store houses are being built, but the biggest one is even greater …. And that’s the Church!

  17. DESTROYING IDOLS

    1 Now when all this was finished, all Israel that were present went out to the cities of Judah, and brake the images in pieces, and cut down the groves, and threw down the high places and the altars out of all Judah and Benjamin, in Ephraim also and Manasseh, until they had utterly destroyed them all. Then all the children of Israel returned, every man to his possession, into their own cities.

    To the carnal eye it must have appeared to be disrespectful, devious and destructive to see the destroying of all that men had worked to build and erect. It may seem wrong to someone that could not understand why would you destroy something that was in the family for so long.

    The carnal mind will never understand the Godly Spiritual acts of a believer.

    They had just left the Celebration of the Passover. The Passover represents their deliverance from Egyptian bondage. The Blood of the Lamb on the doorposts, the Passing through the Red Sea and the Celebration altar service on the other side of the Red Sea. What this means to us is, under the covenant of Jesus we can celebrate the Passover every time we come together for Worship.

    Every time someone Repents of their sins, they apply the Blood of the Lamb to the doorpost of their heart.

    Every time someone is Baptized in Jesus name they pass through the RED SEA of the Blood of JESUS and are delivered from Egyptian bondage.

    Every time some in filled with the Glorious gift of the Holy Ghost, they celebrate at the altar of deliverance.

    What this means is every time we leave a Passover Celebration (Church) service we should go into the land of our lives and seek to destroy any idols that we have built, or even maybe our family has built. In other words we should leave every Holy Ghost filled Worship service with a revived hatred for sin and a revived desire for righteousness.

    Psalm 97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

    Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

    1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

    We accomplish this by Loving GOD with all of our HEART!

    21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

  20. There’s always a blessing in tithing even when we can’t see it, it’s happening in more ways than money. In everything that we do for the Lord if we do it with all of our heart we will live a lifestyle of prosperity!
    3 John 1:2
    Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thu soul prospereth, eth meaning continually.

  21. And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok answered him, and said, Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat, and have left plenty: for the Lord hath blessed his people; and that which is left is this great store.

    When we the people really catch hold of the spirit of giving the Lord will bless and multiply. The needs will be met and there was a great store of things left over. Just like when Joseph stored up food for the upcoming famine, the church can be prepared to minister to needs when the church is able to store up after the needs are met.

  22. 1 Now when all this was finished, ALL

    The one thing tha holds back victory is when ALL are not in it.

    they were ALL with one accord in one place
    and it filled ALL the house

    The word All means to the whole quantity, unity. before we can destroy strongholds, we must be united. no one left behind, or on the side of the road.

  23. The Vision & The Choice

    1 Now when all this was finished, all Israel that were present went out to the cities of Judah, and brake the images in pieces, and cut down the groves, and threw down the high places and the altars out of all Judah and Benjamin, in Ephraim also and Manasseh, until they had utterly destroyed them all. Then all the children of Israel returned, every man to his possession, into their own cities.

    5 And as soon as the commandment came abroad, the children of Israel brought in abundance the firstfruits of corn, wine, and oil, and honey, and of all the increase of the field; and the tithe of all things brought they in abundantly.

    6 And concerning the children of Israel and Judah, that dwelt in the cities of Judah, they also brought in the tithe of oxen and sheep, and the tithe of holy things which were consecrated unto the Lord their God, and laid them by heaps.

    There is a theme in Israel’s history that whenever a king purposed to do good, it seemed rarely were the high places taken away. It seems this chapter reveals that the high places were something that remained in the hands of the people, that it had to come by the people’s choice and wasn’t simply something the king could command to have taken care of. Likewise, the tithe involved the personal choice of the people to get in line with the vision cast by the king.

    20 And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the Lord his God.

    21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

    But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. (Exodus 17:12 KJV)

    We at POFW also have a personal responsibility to *chose* if we will come in agreement with the vision God has given Pastor. Our support of Pastor could make or break the completeness of the success of the vision God has given him to fulfill; it is up to each of us to decide whether we will choose to uphold his arms in upholding the vision.

  24. 21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

    Four areas that Hezekiah Worked with all his heart:
    Service in the house of God
    The law
    The commandments
    To seek God

    These four areas he prospered in. No where here did it say fame, or riches, or anywhere else, except for that which pertains to God. That’s really the place it matters most , isn’t it? So why do we fight so hard in other areas when they won’t matter so much????

  25. And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok
    answered him, and said, Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat, and have left plenty: for the Lord hath blessed his people; and that which is left is this great store.

    When you give unto the Lord, he will bless you with plenty.

  26. 10 And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok answered him, and said, Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat, and have left plenty: for the Lord hath blessed his people; and that which is left is this “great store.”

    When we give with all our heart and not out of obligation we reap more than we need and want but it will over flow.

    Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10

    Let us “prove God” by giving out of heart service and not obligation or desire to get more.

  27. 5 And as soon as the commandment came abroad, the children of Israel brought in abundance the firstfruits of corn, wine, and oil, and honey, and of all the increase of the field; and the tithe of all things brought they in abundantly.
    They brought their first fruits that were abudsnt in their crops.
    Corn~The corn represents substunce.
    wine~old wine and new
    oil~
    honey~

  28. Obedience equals fulfillment

    Long befor God had told David that his family would prosper, but we see now generation after generation, only those who were obedient got the fulfillment of that word. The dons that were disobedient got rath. The sons that were obedient we’re blessed. Tithe and offering are a big part of obedience. As Pastor says, you can tell what is most important to a man if you look at his bank statement. You will see that we tithe and offer and we like to eat. Blessings are poured out when we hold fast to the order and commandments of God. Obedience is the key to blessing.

  29. Verse 20 and 21 show that Hezekiah did his best to do what was right in the sight of God. As a result he was blessed and the nation of Isreal prospered. It does matter as leaders how we live and that we strive to do the will of God by doing so we help others and bless our ministries.

  30. 20 And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the Lord his God.

    21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

    Seek God and his ways with all your heart and you will find him! Just as Hezekiah was blessed and prospered from attending to the service of the Lord and his house, we too will find those same blessings because Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever!

  31. God’s plan is for his people to support the Levites by giving their annual tithes (Nu 18:24) so the Levites can be free to “devote themselves to the Law of the Lord” (vs4). The people respond so enthusiastically that the offering is piled up into heaps in the temple. The heaps are so large that Hezekiah notices them immediately and praise God for the people’s willing generosity. We pray for resources like these to build up the kingdom that the ministers may focus of serving the people and tending to the temple. Our God is more than able to supply our needs. We might think what we give is only little but when we all come together joyfully giving and sacrificing God will multiply.
