First Fruit Is Holy

First Fruit Is Holy
Jesus is the first fruit of God and is holy unto God.
And the human race was made holy before God through Him only.Through the study of the first fruit, we have understood that the first fruit is holy unto the Lord
And whatever is holy God will accept it.
Do you want God to accept you?
Say- I am holy!
Put God first in everything
In your studies
In your friendship
In your relationship
In your job
In your finances
In everything whatever you do
Read Matthew 6:33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as.
Where is the kingdom of God?
Where we find the rules and regulations of God being followed.
Where can we find the rules and regulations of God being followed?
Say – In me!
 Luke 17:20-21
Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.
Luke 11:20
But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
Say- Kingdom of God is among us!
Read Leviticus 23: 14
You must not eat any bread, or roasted or new grain, until the very day you bring this offering to your God. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.
God will truly bless you
Now Read Leviticus 23:20
The priest is to wave the two lambs before the Lord as a wave offering, together with the bread of the firstfruits. They are a sacred offering to the Lord for the priest.
Giving is always a blessing and when it is done as per the word of God definitely it will produce the result accordingly.
Read Rom 11:16
If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.
Our God’s never-changing and His principles are never changing too.
All his commandments are for our abundance, for our provision
God wants all best possession to happen in our lives
So what we must do?
We must follow the truth of the Word of God
When the “first” of anything is holy to God then as per Rom 11:16 His presence and provision covers the rest of it.
Say - I have God's presence and provision for me and my family!
As per Leviticus 23 the children of Israel were instructed to bring a special offering to the Lord at the start of each harvest season.
January month is our starting season of our harvest of whatever we do.
The offering given out of that portion was called “first-fruits” because it represented the first portion of much more to come. ( first portion of another 11 months, it means God will take care through out)
 Say -Lord, we offer this first portion to you because we know the entire harvest (salary etc.) comes from your hand. ( one day’s salary and tithe, one week’s salary and tithe or one month’s salary, give as per your faith level but with cheerful heart no complains)
Say - We give the first fruits because it all belongs to God.”
Say -This is a wonderful biblical principle that applies to our giving as children of God.
Say - When we offer our gifts to the Lord, we are saying that all we have belongs to him,
And we believe the Lord will provide for all our needs.
First Fruit Is Holy
Jesus is the first fruit of God and is holy unto God.
And the human race was made holy before God through Him only.
Father I pray in Jesus name that the practice of “first fruits” is a way to remind us of the power of God, and of His intimate connection with every part of the world in which we live. As we offer our Firstfruits we ask the presence and provision of God to be in our lives in Jesus name.
