Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” I make the following statement…
Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” I believe the tithes MUST be observed according to the way that God decreed they are to be observed in His word.
Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” you MUST tithe only from land that you have inherited in the land of Canaan, where God’s Word said tithing is to be observed. (Deuteronomy 12:1-11 )
Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” you MUST tithe from the increase of agricultural crops, flocks, and herds on the land you have inherited in Canaan. (Leviticus 27:30-33; Deuteronomy 12:1,10-11)
Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” you MUST take firstfruits from and crops crops and livestock annually to the Temple in Jerusalem (Nehemiah 10:37)
Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” you MUST not take your tithes to the Temple Storehouse in Jerusalem, but instead, you must take your tithes annually to Levites, who in turn will take a tithe of those tithes to the Temple Storehouse. (Numbers 35:1-8; Nehemiah 10:37-38)
Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” you MUST give your tithes to the Levitic bloodline of the twelve tribes of Israel (Numbers 18:21-28; Nehemiah 10:37-38)
Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” you MUST have an Aaronic Priest present at the time that you give your tithes. (Nehemiah 10:37-38)
Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” you MUST also take a second tithe annually to Jerusalem to the Feast of Tabernacles, and eat that tithe with your family and with the Levitic bloodline of the twelve tribes of Israel. (Deuteronomy 14:22-27)
Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” you MUST not eat a tithe every third year, but must set that tithe apart in your own city every three years in a seven year cycle to feed the Levitic bloodline of the twelve tribes of Israel, widows, orphans and foreigners in your city with the tithe for that year (Deuteronomy 14:28-29 )
Since you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” you will get a full one year reprieve from tithing your agricultural crops every seven years as you will not be able to harvest, nor plant your fields that year. (Leviticus 25:4)
If you insists that “Tithing is a MUST,” and are willing to tithe the way that God decreed tithes are to be observed in His ordinances, (Deuteronomy 12:8 ) God has no problem with you tithing at all.
Exodus 12:49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.
If you choose to tithe according to the order set forth in God’s Holy Word you should not teach people living outside of Canaan that they are required to tithe (Acts 15:10,24-29; 21:23-25)
Pastors and Teachers should, at the very least, have the decency and respect for the word of God and for the God of the word, to teach that tithes are only required in Canaan…
…where God’s word clearly says His commanded tithe is to be observed.
Pastors and Teachers MUST NOT berate people living outside of Canaan that do not tithe, since God’s word states that other nations were not given the Law that He gave to the children of Israel, (Psalm 147:19-20) and that the Mosaic Law should not be imposed on Gentile Believers. (Acts 15:10,23-29)
One last thing…
If you insist that “Tithing is a MUST,” you’d BETTER observe all other commands written in the Mosaic Law as well…or the apostle Paul declares you to be cursed. (Galatians 3:10) This would include the command to stone rebellious children, as well as the command to offer sacrifices for sin…which, of course… would be rejecting Christ’s death on the cross. (Galatians 5:4)
Luke 23:45 “And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.” LUKE 23:45
The veil spoken of here reached from the ceiling to the floor, from wall to wall, and separated the Holy of Holies from the holy place in the temple. Solomon’s temple was 30 cubits high (1 Ki. 6:2), but Herod increased the height to 40 cubits according to the writings of Josephus, a first century historian. Therefore, depending on what standard you use to convert cubits to feet (there is uncertainty as to exactly what a cubit equaled in our feet and inches), this veil was somewhere between 60 feet and 90 feet high.
It is significant that this veil was rent from top to bottom (Mt. 27:51; Mk. 15:38). No man could have torn the veil in this fashion. It was definitely God that rent the veil. The time when this veil was rent corresponds exactly with the moment Jesus died. Hebrews 9:1-9 tells us that the veil separated the Holy of Holies, where God dwelt, from the rest of the temple, where men dwelt. This signified that man was separated from God by sin (Isa. 59:1-2). Only the high priest was permitted to pass beyond this veil, and only once each year (Ex. 30:10; Heb. 9:7). This symbolized the Christ who would enter into God’s presence for us and make an atonement.
The moment that Christ died, the veil was torn in two, revealing that the sacrifice had been made and that there is no longer any separation between God and man. Jesus tore the veil, that is to say His flesh (Heb. 10:20), in two and opened up a new way unto God through Himself.
All the true christians are a vile wretched people who are saved by grace.
For you have been delivered by grace through trusting, and even this is not your accomplishment but God’s gift. You were not delivered by your own actions; therefore no one should boast. Ephesians (Eph) 2:8-9 CJB
Whenever you find a person calling himself/herself good, label them as non believers. They have not yet found Christ.
The only reason one would want Christ for is because He is the only savior, we are wretched and He is the saviour of the wretched.
Question: “How is the church supposed to keep its doors open if people don’t tithe?”
Answer: It amazes me how so many can’t figure out the simple fact that the church can run on voluntary, freewill, contributions.
Do the math folks…
If you give 10% as a voluntary, freewill contribution you will be giving the same amount you would have given if you were yielding to the monetary tithe requirement lie…
…only the voluntary, freewill contribtion is out of love instead of because of being lied to. The church would be getting no less from you.
Instead of yielding to the monetary tithe requirement lie and giving an extra offering of, say…7%, why can’t you give 17% as a voluntary, freewill contribution instead?
Why fight to keep the doors open to the church through money garnered by lies, when you can keep the doors open through money garnered out of love? A church built on lies is not in God’s will. God’s church is founded and operates on truth, not lies.
TITHE is not actually a COMMANDMENT. (And yes, TITHE can be converted to MONEY)
This is a result of not reading the bible.
CLARK OBI’M Empty claims on tithes.
Argument: Who told you that christians they should not do it as Abraham did? And who told you that spoils of war those aren’t his Wealth? Abraham recognized those things as his WEALTH .. read that Genesis you will see it there…. As I said earlier, Tithe wasn’t a COMMANDMENT but its a law of Increase. AND also, Tithe can be paid NOT only in LAND OR ANIMAL PRODUCE … For back then in Israel, Technology was still a baby people rely more on ANIMAL AND LAND FARMING .. but now, times are changing and Computer businesses are taking the lead….. (But one thing is sure., That whether you PAY or not PAY Tithe does not input Sin or Righteousness on you. ___________________(DO YOU KNOW WHAT MATTERS MOST?????
My response: CLARK OBI’M Everything you are saying is not biblical does the bible say 1. You should give tithe as Abraham did?
NO…. 2. Does the bible say you can pay tithes with money or anything? No.
You are using the word of God with opinions….3. do you mean God did not know technology will come?
4. Did God say when computer comes you should change his law? 5. Does the bible say tithe is not law? No. 6. Why are you cursed if you don’t obey the law of tithes? Malachi 3:9Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. God does not curse those who obey the law.
Galatians 3:10For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
7. Does the bible say doing what is written or what technology says? Be careful with your empty arguments sir. Stop using opinion on the written scripture please. Tithe is law and it will remain law as long as the bible has not changed your opinion is nothing to change what the bible says. Commands of God comes from His laws. Check here and keep your opinion to yourself.
Leviticus 27:30,34And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD.These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
Malachi 3:7Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?
Malachi 4:4Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
Stop changing scripture to suite your opinions that’s being satanic. A godly man obeys God no matter the technology. Last tithes where latter given to Levites who does not exist now. Check scripture below stop giving opinions on God’s word that’s dangerous.
Numbers 18:21And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.
Levitical priesthood ended when Christ came so there is a change of law. Stop what you are doing and obey what God says.
Hebrews 7:12For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. Hebrews 7:12,21-22For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.(For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
Please quite empty arguments. your opinion can not change what the bible says. If you will still argue then I don’t know who God is with you.
Revelation 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
