Miracles And Faith Acts - Should They Always Be Accompanied By Seeds/offerings?

I Strongly believe in God Almighty, Jesus Christ his only Son our Saviour and the Holy Spirit, Amen!

But I have a Dilemma here, I would like genuine and true Christian Brothers/Sisters to please, help if you can.  Also, as a democrat, I welcome every opinion - no matter how negative. 

You see, some Religious Ministries that claims Miracles and Prophesies these days seems to worry me a lot with their attitudes towards money. They Prophesy a lot of things that are yet to be manifested and at the same token make requests of seeds sowing and offerings into the Ministry.  Personally, I do not consider it wrong in sowing seeds and giving thanks Offerings to God's Words the best you can, as God has given his Authority to this in Corinthians ? Ch.v 'To give generously and according to our abilities'. (Sorry, can't remember the chapter right now!)

However, my confusion here is sometimes, they hint on how much one should sow or openly request a particular amount of money to be sowed, why? Is this appropriate for a God's Ministry to do so or,

If so, is it the Will of God they request Seeds and Offerings from almost every prayer need (one has), Prophesy and it's accompanying Faith Acts in honour of God's Words? To make these request seem appropriate, they go on to justify them with a quote from the Bible "One must not come to God with Empty hands".  Please, educate me here as I am considering backing off the whole idea of joining a Ministry but please, don't suggest any Ministry either as I know the Holy Spirit will lead here. Thanks in anticipation!

Hey lady, it varies from the biblical perspective in which you see the whole scenario, however u also do not expect all the so-called Christians of the New Covenant (New Testament Laws) to abide by it, there must be false doctrines which contradicts the New Testament Laws of Jesus Christ.

This is the more reason why U and I need the Holy Spirit to guide us through to know what and do the right things.

If u read the book of Hebrews 11 there u'll find out what "FAITH" is all about as faith is what interpretes our actual position with God in the Christian race.

@Topic.

You need to know what works best for u, though i myself am not so grinded in the word but by His Grace i can do all things. The only Law i know of is the commandment of "Sowing Seeds" and giving/paying Tithes and Offerings. Jesus made so much emphasis on these. (can't place any reference now)

NOW!! The bible says do not judge nor condemn 'a man of God (my opinion), yes i know there are false pastors and prophets, Just know what works best for you by sowing seeds for prayers. I'll be back to tell u more.

You are a liar, Jesus NEVER emphasized offerings, tithes and seed sowing. His only emphasis was giving to the poor and the needy and it is crooked pastors that are twisting his word to get the flock to give to them instead.

oral roberts claims the revelation of seed faith was given to him 61 yrs ago by God. i believe him. he says it worked for him to get out of debt but you know in the christian world, there are always bandwagoners. everyone jumps on every new revelation given to someone else rather than seek god for themselves. of course God does not always require seed/offering for miracles that would make them bribery. if you remember the story of naaman the leper, when he attempted to give elisha the gifts, elisha rejected the gifts. seeding may be required on occasion but you need to hear from god. that is why god desires a personal relationship with everyone. the pastor should not be your middle man to god but he is your shepherd. that is not to say that God does not reveal stuff to his servants to tell his children but we too should learn to cultivate that intimacy with HIm.
