Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down this Tithe
Remember the wall in Germany and the division between East Berlin and West Berlin? East Berlin was so prosperous, why? Because of their freedom. Along with their freedom they had more responsibility. That’s what I am trying to say with tithing. Although the NT covenant promotes freedom there is still more responsibility than the other side of the wall, which is the OT covenant. In order to open up the minds of those being burdened under OT commands, then you have to tear down that wall. That wall is tithing. Tithing is like a security blanket. As long as ministers can hold on to that for financial security then the more control they have. Although the wall had no power in and of itself, it dictated what the people did. Yes, people could migrate east and west, but overall that wall had mind control and limited the boundaries of the heart and mind. The law of tithing allows people to migrate over to the other side of freewill giving by giving offerings, but overall it will dictate and minimize the minds of the people. Yes, you can create equality through the tithe, just as communism and West Berlin created equality with communism. Through all that time, the people of West Berlin had the power to overcome the burden that the wall and communism had on them. But over time the wall minimized the minds of the people. It took a free person living outside the walls of West Germany to help tear down that wall. The people inside West Germany could only see what was inside and had no vision of beyond that wall.
That is what I present to you. Tear down the wall. It’s a dictator that only acts as a curtain and a security blanket. Maybe you see beyond the wall in your own life, because you’ve migrated to the free side with the offerings you give, but it is not so for others, whether you like it or not.
