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)
According to the Bible, the ONLY tithe that is to be given to God is a tithe required of the tribe of Levi.
God said that the congregation was to give their tithes to the tribe of Levi because the tribe of Levi had no inheritance of land amongst them.
Numbers 18:21 And, 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.Numbers 18:22 Neither must the children of Israel henceforth come nigh the tabernacle of the congregation, lest they bear sin, and die.Numbers 18:23 But the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel they have no inheritance.
The context of verse 22 of the above passage proves the congregation was forbidden by God to even go near the House of God with their tithes.
The tithe of the congregation was the inheritance of the tribe of Levi…
…not the property of the House of God.
The tribe of Levi, upon receiving their inheritance (tithes) from the congregation, was to take a tithe of their inheritance to the House of God.
Numbers 18:24 But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as an heave offering unto the LORD, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance.Numbers 18:25 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,Numbers 18:26 Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for the LORD, even a tenth part of the tithe.Numbers 18:27 And this your heave offering shall be reckoned unto you, as though it were the corn of the threshingfloor, and as the fulness of the winepress.Numbers 18:28 Thus ye also shall offer an heave offering unto the LORD of all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel; and ye shall give thereof the LORD’S heave offering to Aaron the priest.Numbers 18:29 Out of all your gifts ye shall offer every heave offering of the LORD, of all the best thereof, even the hallowed part thereof out of it.Numbers 18:30 Therefore thou shalt say unto them, When ye have heaved the best thereof from it, then it shall be counted unto the Levites as the increase of the threshingfloor, and as the increase of the winepress.Numbers 18:31 And ye shall eat it in every place, ye and your households: for it is your reward for your service in the tabernacle of the congregation.
Nehemiah 10:29 They clave to their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse, and into an oath, to walk in God’s law, which was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the LORD our Lord, and his judgments and his statutes;
Nehemiah 10:37 And that we should bring the firstfruits of our dough, and our offerings, and the fruit of all manner of trees, of wine and of oil, unto the priests, to the chambers of the house of our God; and the tithes of our ground unto the Levites, that the same Levites might have the tithes in all the cities of our tillage.Nehemiah 10:38 And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the Levites take tithes: and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes unto the house of our God, to the chambers, into the treasure house.
The Bible proves that God never wanted a tithe from the congregation…
…He wanted a tithe from the tribe of Levi.
Even in Malachi, God was telling the Levite Priests (sons of Aaron) in Israel to bring the tithes they had stolen to the House of God. He was not speaking to the congregation.
Malachi 1:1 The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.
Malachi 1:6 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?Malachi 1:7 Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the LORD is contemptible.Malachi 1:8 And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts.Malachi 1:9 And now, I pray you, beseech God that he will be gracious unto us: this hath been by your means: will he regard your persons? saith the LORD of hosts.Malachi 1:10 Who is there even among you that would shut the doors for nought? neither do ye kindle fire on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you, saith the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.Malachi 1:11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.Malachi 1:12 But ye have profaned it, in that ye say, The table of the LORD is polluted; and the fruit thereof, even his meat, is contemptible.Malachi 1:13 Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the LORD of hosts; and ye brought that which was torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? saith the LORD.Malachi 1:14 But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen.
Malachi 2:1 And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.
Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.Malachi 3:7 Even 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 3:8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.Malachi 3:9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.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.Malachi 3:11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.Malachi 3:12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.
Luke 23:45 “And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.”
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.
If you don’t read and study the bible then you don’t hear God.
The bible speaks everything your life is in need of.
The bible is the complete voice of God.
Read it, Live it.
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.
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.
