Does Malachi 3:10 speak of material or spiritual blessing?

Their basis on being blessed is material wealth. "He bought a house in Ayala Alabang," that's what they call a blessing. Is that true? Listen to what is written in the Bible, in the book of Luke, here's what it says. And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. 'See? Salvation consisteth not in the abundance of the things which you possesseth. Take heed, said Christ. Look around. Beware of any form of covetousness. Don't be too greedy. You keep on asking for donations that are not in the Bible.

God said, "Beware of covetousness: for a man's life

consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. You don't have to expound on that because it is clear enough. The truth about what the Bible says about "pressed down, and shaken together, and running over," is not literal at all. Here's a proof that it's not literal. Malachi 3:10. 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. How many blessings? Only one, indeed. A blessing. But what kind of blessing is that? "there shall not be room enough to receive it" My question to those of you who preach tithing, greedy about tithes. You keep promising your members by reading Malachi 3:10. Is that a literal blessing? Does that talk about money? Who among you don't have anymore room to store his money? I bet your leader can still store his money in the bank and banks can still take it. What the Bible refers to as a blessing is not literal because it's a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Is it literal then? SM [Shoemart - a shopping mall] alone cannot be filled with money. This one has not enough room to receive it. When God showers this blessing, " I will open you the windows of heaven." Do you have any idea how big heaven is? Has anyone been able to calculate the vastness of heaven? And how big is earth by the way? It has a measurement. Therefore, when God opens up heaven, and pours down the blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive, if that is literal, even earth can't contain it. Heaven is way much bigger. That's how you deceive your members, you felons! Money-sucking pests! Pastors of the devil who are gluttons for tithes Tithing is no longer a commandment in our dispensation. That's meant for Israelites. And God promised a blessing that goes with it. "I will give you a blessing," which refers to only one. "There shall not be room enough to receive." Is that money? Is that a house? A land? No, because it says "there shall not be room enough to receive". Nothing in this world can contain that blessing. It's not literal indeed. As a proof to those of you who give tithes, does it happen to you literally? Isn't it true that up to now you're still indebted? Do you realize that? Imagine yourself being showered with blessings that no room is big enough to receive. Granting that your leader receives such blessing, it should follow that members also receive the same thing. So that there'll be no beggars and no squatters anymore. But many of you are still squatters. Am I not right? You still have beggars among you. Why is this not fulfilled in the midst of you? Because it's not literal. Just because you have lots and lots of money does not automatically mean it's God's blessing. Remember the verse. Lucas 12:15 states "Take heed, said Christ. Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." Therefore, God's blessing, in reference to that verse, is not literal. It's spiritual. And if that's what you receive, then nothing can contain it. You'll have more than enough joy. The problem with these other pastors, whenever they come across this verse, they go, "pressed down, and shaken together, and running over". They easily regard that as money. Has your money run over yet? I have not seen anyone yet, whose bills ketp falling out of his pocket because they ran over. And not even the banks can't accept them anymore because it's too much for them to keep. There's no such thing. You're leader could be that rich. "Pressed down, and shaken together, and running over." What about you? Lacking, sunken, crushed. Beware! If you join any religious group, brethren, we should not easily believe a pastor's sweet tongue. We must live not by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Every word that proceedeth, not from the mouth of a pastor, but of the mouth of God.

Are the "prosperity pastors" right by concluding that material riches can be gained out of tithing?
