“The reason is God lays claim to all firsts,” White wrote on her site. “So when you keep for yourself something that belongs to God you are desecrating what is to be consecrated to God.”
White explained that in this case, the “firsts” are money, which “supernaturally unlocks amazing opportunity, blessing, favor and divine order for your life.”
White said she contributes a month’s pay each year as a “seed,” which is supposed to grow into prosperity. She called on her followers to do the same.
“When you honor this principle it provides the foundation and structure for God’s blessings and promises in your life, it unlocks deep dimensions of spiritual truths that literally transform your life!” she wrote. “When you apply this everything comes in divine alignment for His plan and promises for you. When you don’t honor it, whether through ignorance or direct disobedience there are consequences.”
White said these donations “belong to God and God alone,” but she wants you to send them to her.
