I watched a video sermon on tithing from Life Church. It was titled “Tithing the Tithe”. One of the statements that the preacher made on the video was, “Why do so many people give and not see results, not see return, not see the covenant promises of God? It’s either the wrong motive or the wrong method. It’s not because the word of God is not true.”
If you are the one tithing, and not seeing the blessings, how many times have you heard a pastor say that you do not have the blessings because your heart must not be right? it’s so frustrating to hear that, as someone trying as best as he can to give with a good heart. I know. I’ve been there. What if I told you that you are not receiving a blessing from giving because you are under the curse for tithing?
5 Reasons Why Tithes are a Curse
- Obeying the law has a curse upon it (Galatians 3:10)
- You are fallen from grace (Galatians 5:4-6)
- God doesn’t say anything about loving a dedicated giver (2 Corinthians 9:7)
- Tithing makes you a slave (Galatians 5:1)
- Tithing makes you weak (Romans 8:3)
Ok. you get it, Israel was punished and cursed for disobeying the law, but doesn’t the bible say that we are free from the curse of the law? Yes, it does. Galatians 3:14 states, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us”. Of course, this sounds like great news, and it is, but this actually comes with bad news for some out there.
If you read four verses earlier in Galatians 3:10 it states, “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.“
For those of you who are continuing to practice the works of the law, including tithing, you are actually placing yourself back under the curse. Ouch! So, you practice tithing to protect yourself from the curse, but in actuality, you actually are bringing it upon yourself.
5 Reasons Why No Tithes are a Blessing
- You are under grace (Romans 6:14)
- God said He would supply all our needs without mentioning the tithe (Philippians 4:19)
- Our gifts are a sweet-smelling sacrifice that is acceptable and pleasing to God (Philippians 4:18)
- God Loves a Cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
- The Spirit gives life (Romans 8:5-10)
If you don’t practice tithing, you are free from the curse, free from the law, and free from tithing. So many feel led to give to someone outside their church but are terrified to do so because of the fear of the curse. It’s not that they don’t like their church or disagree, but in their heart, they have the desire to fill a more urgent need. When people pass up the opportunity to give from their hearts, they invite doubt or event guilt in their hearts, which robs them of their blessing
You can take away the punishment for not tithing and you can make it appear as graceful as possible; but underneath the sheep costume, tithing is still the Big. Bad. Law.
Let’s read a passage in Galatians 3:10
For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”
Tithing is part of the Old law. So, if you are trying to obey tithing by giving 10% of your increase, then I would suggest that you either obey the whole law or do not follow the law of tithing. Before I go any further, I did not say “do not give sacrificially”. I said, do not follow the law of tithing.
Obeying the law of tithing puts a curse on your life. Could that be the reason why you are not receiving the blessing? I’m not into the prosperity gospel thing at all, but I do believe God blesses his people for obedience. Some of that blessing can be external in financial rewards, and some of that blessing can be internal peace and satisfaction. I like to say that people reap what they sow. If you reap generosity you’ll sow generosity. It doesn’t always mean that if you reap $100 bucks, you’ll sow $200.
It’s up to you to decide in your heart the truth about tithing. God did not intend for his church to be under the giving requirements of the law. He gave us his Spirit to tutor us and help us down the road of sacrificial giving. Don’t be fooled by those that say “tithing is under the grace age so now we should give it by grace instead of the compulsion of the law”. Run far away as you can from that line of thinking. As you can see, the early church is still not the only one that struggled with mingling the old law with the new. We are still trying to do it today and they are putting others and themselves under the curse.
Rob Purser says
If you see God has given every one the ability to earn wealth, Duet 8.18, would you say that He has given each of us 100% of our wealth. I see it as this, If he has given us 100% to steward, then what ever the percentage He requires back is for His purpose for those who are in charge of the ministry finance. Tithe to me is a drag because it is a confusing message. Giving from the heart makes more sence, as the heart is where Faith comes from. Works without faith is dead right? The more we justify why we do or dont tithe tells me that there is alot of confusion still remaining in the body. If some one wants to give 10% to the Lord, great, it has nothing to do with anyone else. Tithes or offerings only become lawful when a man in authority places a high demand over the flock. It says to give from the heart. If you tithe or give either way under compulsion, your free will has been stolen. Fear based messages on giving is more toxic than wheather tithe of offering is biblical. My suggestion is to let the Holy Spirit guide you in all truth and walk in peace knowing that God loves a cheerful giver. Not someone who has been fleesed by an elder who then in turn becomes recentment. Faith is from the heart guys, if any works are not evident from the heart it is just deeds of the flesh and not of faith. That goes for transfering money from your pot into Gods. If we can be prepared to give 100% to Him at any given time, we will be open to what ever percentage He requires. All ministries have over heads. Just be right in your heart and at peace when you give to the Lord. My understand of being cursed is totally unbiblical as a believer. To many people believe in the power of curses than the power of blessing.
The subject on curses and blessings are confusing so many people, including me.Honestly i dont knoe what to believe anymore and is so frustrating.
Christ gave His all at the Cross. We abide in His perfect sacrifice. We cannot earn any merit. We give because He first gave us. That’s it.
Will You please clear all of this up (for the whole body of Christ)? It is really confusing, it is causing a lot of division, and it seems to make an entry point for many new believers to stumble in their faith; wondering, “what else of the law of Moses do I need to do to be ‘ok’ with God?”. Or, by making it easy to think that we can obtain the promises of Abraham through works unto redemption from a curse. Is Jesus enough, or do I need to tithe not to be cursed? What do you expect of gentiles? Are gentiles to follow the Law of Moses? If Peter, who was a Jew, was living as a gentile- after coming to faith in Christ… am I, as a Gentile expected to live as a Jew? If I tithe from my money, will You save me from this curse? I don’t want to be cursed, Lord. I want to have relationship with You and I want to do what I see you doing. I want to follow You personally. How can I be good enough to do this? Is faith in Jesus Christ, love for one another, and keeping myself unspotted from the world enough, or not? Did Jesus and the Apostles tithe out of their money? Why would Jesus, being a carpenter, tithe? What would He tithe? Who would He tithe too (being the Lord of the Sabbath, greater than all – yet making Himself a servant of all- and the first fruits of His creatures, inheriting Earth and Heaven together as a Groom and Bride and co-heirs)? What would fishermen tithe? What would tax collectors and doctors tithe? The pharisees tithed even of their ‘herbs,’ being so righteous, yet even a greater righteousness than this is need to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Do you want me to tithe of my food? Wouldn’t that be closer to giving You what the ‘priests’ were stealing from You, recorded in Malachi? Am I free, or am I in bondage? What do I need to do to be free from You cursing me? Who can set me free? If Abraham tithed to Melchizedek, and gave the rest to the king of Sodom, does that mean that I have to give 90% of my income to the wicked? Is a pastor greater than I, or anyone else in the Kingdom of Heaven? Who is greater in the Kingdom of Heaven? Isn’t the least considered to be the greatest? Did the priests in Malachi, who were stealing from You, tithe to other priests? Who did they tithed to?? If I am a king and a priest in Christ, do I tithe to other priests? Are they greater than I am? Isn’t the one that is greater the one that receives the tithe? As a debt free (to God) king, in Christ; am I to be in debt to any man, other than the debt of love? Since money was not tithed, do you want me to tithe out of my food, or herbs as the pharisees? Who do I give it to? Where is the man who is greater than I, that I can give Your tithe to? Didn’t Jesus say, give alms of what You have and the rest will be clean? Aren’t alms given to the poor? When I give to the least of Your brothers, am I not giving to You? Are not Your brothers, mothers, and sisters those who do the will of God? So the least of these, in the Kingdom of Heaven, would be greater than me, right? Do they deserve only 10% of my food and livestock, my money (as tithing is taught today), or do they deserve my life, as You gave me Yours? Am I not to love them as You have loved me? …..Lord, what is Love? Will You answer us plainly concerning all of this, as Your friends? And will You please forgive me for trying to seek righteousness and the blessings of Abraham through keeping the law of Moses, working backwards to obtain the down payment of the Promise of eternal life by the sealing of the Holy Spirit, which I have already obtained by faith and confession of Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior? Will you please forgive me and redeem me from the curse of the Law and save me from Your words, by my faith and confession of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God; and will you let me see my faith work by love? Will you please get people to pray for me to be healed? I pray for them to be forgiven and healed too, when they repent and give all to the least of those who do Your will; loving one another and taking care of one another, not biting and devouring one another and exiling and cursing one another.….Lord, when you show me what Love is, and when it begins to work through me by my faith in Christ, exponentially, will you help me to show it to my brothers and sisters, in Christ? Will You help me to walk as You walked, and to do even greater things than You did? ….In Power and Love, multiplying food, and walking in the grace of God to give my all to those who need a physician? Judas can keep the money, I just want to eat Your will Lord.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
1Ti 6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
just sounds like excuses to not pay tithe but its ok to pay he gov’t lol is God not worth 10%
S A says
The dispute is not to pay tithes, just lying about it and trying to make people think they must pay God for his favor when Jesus already said Paid in full, as in It is finished.
I’m also outraged on how these liars try to put the Malachi 3:8-10 curse on Christians when Galatians 3:13 declares that Christ has redeemed us from the curses by becoming cursed for us on the cross.
Does your bible say ” thou shall NOT covet thy neighbors wife , house, car, property or income (10%) ?
Yes or No ?
God never included poor people to pay any sort of tithe, food or money in the Old testament or New.
It was freewill giving
If you can not force people to love you then you can not force people to give you money that is robbery.
God wants a relationship with us not robots
Please do not treat Jesus who died for us as an automatic teller machine because of your lack of knowledge and understanding of scripture
Greed always finds a way to justify fraud and stealing other peoples money
Jesus is not involved in Fraud or Greed
Truth??? You need to change your screen name. Each of as as Christians are to give what we purpose in our heart. There is no percentage. Come on and please let The Holy Spirit lead you into all truth- Truth. The Bible is very clear on this. Do you believe the Bible or man? Tithing is obsolete. Giving is what we are called to do and NEVER out of compulsion. I personally give 20 to 25% but that is between God and I. I don’t make excuses to get out of tithing. I just don’t call it that because that is ridiculous and WRONG! Men, who are sinners just like you and I tell you something and you run with it rather than seeking the guidance of The Spirit. Religion sucks, in fact it was the religious leaders of Christ’s time on earth who had him killed! So you still want to follow the Religious leaders of today? That is just plain sickening and foolish.
May God richly bless you with the REAL Truth…..
You earned your wealth by your own merit according to tithing. In the NT I received my grace, ie unmerited favor by Jesus at salvation. I give but it has nothing to do with deserving what Christ did for me by taking all the curse of the Law on the tree.
Patricia Backora says
When the need ceases the sacrifice should also cease. Do professional preachers really need that brand new Lexus if their old car is still running? Jesus took up money for the poor, not the rich. This shame game of If you love Jesus you’ll tithe anyway” is a guilt tactic to get more money out of the working poor, and preachers know it. The institutional church is a white elephant on God’s back. It costs a fortune to support it and Paul NEVER taught Christians to tithe to pay for some building. Tithing is Old Testament. Let the children first be fed.
One way the seminary-trained preacher suckers you into tithing (even though he KNOWS the apostles never taught it) is to say, well, it may not be a law but it’s a PRINCIPLE. I looked this word up in the dictionary and A PRINCIPLE IS A LAW! Why don’t preachers teach ALL the tithing law instead of just latching onto the ten per cent figure? The Jews had a third-year tithing law where ALL the tithe went to the poor (Deut.14:28). A tither could spend his tithe on BOOZE (Deut.14:26). No sermons on these scriptures, but they don’t make much money for the preacher, eh?
AMEN TO THAT SISTER PATRICIA
speaking of the lords prayer he taught, give us this day our daily bread , scripture teaches we have not because we ask not , not we have not because we tithe not. lordy lordy those of you who are bound by malachi law you will have to pay three different tithes and six types of offering to not be cursed or robbing god / oh I forgot your pastor did not tell you that
Robert Munyui Kamunyu says
Tithing was under and is under the law with a curse for Christians seeking salvation under the law, Galatians 3:3-13, Malachi 3:1-18. When pastors and priest lie by quoting Malachi 3:1-18, under the law IN OLD COVENANT , how many Christians line up to be served with food when tithes and offering under the law are given? Is the storehouse pastors’ and priests’ house or the Church being the body of Christ? Saved Christians by grace IN NEW COVENANT , who are lead by the Holy Spirit are not under law. They are ministers of the new testament born of love with exceeding glory which surpassed the glory that was in law in Moses . We have been redeemed from the curse of the law to adoptions of sons in Royal Priesthood ( Pastors ,Priest and Bishops who are servants of God cannot subject sons of God in Royal Priesthood to tithe taxes- absolute illegal) and are not under the law, Galatians 5:1, Galatians4:4-5,2 Corinthians 3:1-18 . Salvation under the law one attains it at last breath on earth having done all that pertains to the law which is hard for one to accomplish. Even the tithe which was given by Abraham was under the law of sin and death from the fall of Adam and Eve. Those who lie would like to deceive Christians that tithe was before the law but before which law. When Christ was born He was given gifts and not tithes Mathew 2:11-12. Salvation under spiritual law of love by grace is freely given and attained with free miracles from God our Father, Ephesians 2:4 -9, Ephesians 2:13 -20. Under Leviticus priesthood tithes were given for the tribe of Levi and tithe of tithe to the high Priest for they shared no land apart from the walled towns they were allocated to stay in for their continuous sacrifice to God, Numbers 18:20 -29.Widows, strangers ,fatherless and orphans benefited from tithes and offerings given to Levites, Deuteronomy 14:22-29. In Christianity widows were asked to be catered by close brethren to ease burden to the Church. There were also tithes of different kinds in Israel. There was also a tithe where a family had to eat all before the Lord, Deutreronomy12:6-7. In Christ Jesus we are saved by grace to adoptions of sons in Royal Priesthood of Christ and not by works of law ,Galatians 3:8-13,Acts13: 38-39, Galatians 4: 4-5, Galatians2:16-21, Galatians 5:18. Sons have direct access to the Father and free common inheritance not bought or worked for from the father. For servants ( Pastors and Priest) are servants of God worthy all respects and due help . NEW TESTAMENT two priesthood are compared Hebrew7: 7-28, Hebrew8:6 -13, Hebrew 9:6-9, Hebrew 10:8-23. Leviticus priesthood under the law with tithes, death, discontinuity and its acceptance under glory of law without the great commission was done away in Christ and the holy priesthood of Christ without tithes, death and discontinuity with exceeding glory under which Christians are in salvation being a Holy nation and Loyal Priests to preach to the world GOD being their Father in new covenant ministry. Tithing weakens the Royal Priesthood of Christians in Christ where Christians are supposed to give themselves as living sacrifice in the mission vision fields. The Christians Royal Priesthood in Christ Jesus is internally weekend from within ,fought and economically drained mostly for indoors ministries under revival of Leviticus priesthood by pastors. The Royal Priesthood is internally spiritually emaciated and trodden upon.2 Corinthians2:1-13, 2Peter 2:5-9. Priesthood involves sacrifices. The priesthood was changed from the old covenant( Leviticus Priesthood) to the new covenant (Loyal Priesthood of labor in Christ without tithes allocations which is not appreciated) and the law governing it was changed. Jesus Christ told Peter look after his lambs and later to look after His sheep ( service) in clear shift from Leviticus priesthood John 21:15-17. Under Leviticus priesthood an animal for sacrifice was alive between the alter of sacrifice and the Levite priest holding the sacrificial knife. Sheep remained alive for a period of time only when they were delivered many animals for sacrifice and the alter could not hold them all for sacrifice .We are dead to sin and alive in Christ who live in us being a living sacrifice to God. Levite Pastors and Priest are comfortable with brethren who live like dead sacrifice. Levite priests were to labor to sacrifice and not tendering the flocks. Pastors and Priests who revive the Leviticus priesthood removed by Christ and merge it to the Loyal priesthood of Christ do so for personal gains in mass cheating for self tithes allocations. Leviticus priesthood under law remained hostile to the Ministry of Christ and His disciples who suffered in their hands even after Christ death. Levite priests beat and wanted to kill all disciples of Christ whom they told not to preach in His name. Acts 5:17-42. What pastors are not telling the Church (the bride/sons/ ambassadors /advocate of the word/children) is the reason Christ had in choosing the twelve disciples ( under new covenant in Grace ) and opted not to use the Levite Priests ( in old covenant under law) that were well established and placed had they to be chosen preach to the world. LET PASTORS , BISHOPS AND PRIESTS HONESTLY PURGE THEIR HEARTS AND SPEAK THE TRUTH ON TITHES. CHRIST IS THE END OF THE LAW IN THE OLD COVENANT. The intrigue of doctrinal falsehood on tithes smartly engineered and flamboyantly taught by them worldwide cannot be justified or be cleansed by their religious social status. Christians should not be for entertainments but for truth preached and taught which is not in contest with numbers. Let Bishops ,Pastors, Priests and Church Elders handle the Church of Christ within Christians doctrines established by Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Apostles in the mission field vision. CHRISTIANS MUST FACE AND ADDRESS THE MASS SWEEPING AND SOOTHING FALSEHOOD TAUGHT BY SOME WELL EDUCATED ELITE CHRISTIANS ABOUT TITHES IN A SOBER SPIRITUAL REALITY FACE OUT. This is real unexpected falsehood from those held dearly in trust by many Christian. The Royal Priesthood in grace is quite different from Leviticus Priesthood under the law. Leviticus Priesthood in the old covenant belonged to the Levite tribe among the eleven tribes in Israel but the Royal Priesthood in the new covenant under oppression and suppression belongs to all brethren in the world in Christ Jesus ( the Church / the body of Christ) who are commissioned to preach to the world. The Royal Priesthood is well placed to reach the world more effectively at close quarters in Christ love and glory expected. It is quite unfortunate that Christians unknowingly are victims of systematic unmarked professional intellectual falsehood commercialization cover up in tithes teaching by learned Christians brethren which is disservice to the (church) body of Christ. But Christians have been warned not to be fools since for some preaching and teaching falsehood is an act energetically engaged smartly and Christians are smartly conned .Ephesians 5:15-16. Tithing under law impoverish the Royal Priesthood of Christ physically and spiritually which make the Great commission less effective. When all saved Christians are in Royal Priesthood, to whom do you tithe to in the in new covenant? The Royal Priesthood needs to take its place in Christian missions empowered in New Covenant for Christians to work in love in intended glory in grace as the body of Christ.
A fountain cannot produce sweet and bitter water the same time. James 3:8-18. We Christian are saved by GRACE IN CHRIST LOVE(Spiritual Law) for we cannot be subjected to law of sin and death crucified and done away by Christ on cross of Calvary. We are subjected to spiritual law of life in Christ Jesus and ought to have the spiritual understanding of the Word of God in liberty without corrupting the Word of God. Roman 8:1-2, Colossians 1:9-10. As God has blessed us in common inheritance of the saints, we should give sacrificially as we have purposed in our hearts in liberty and in love, Galatians 5:1, 2Corinthians 9;6-7, Galatians 6:6-7, Hebrew6:6-12,Hebrew13:11-16. Christ taught spiritual giving to God and to our parents, Luke 6:8 ,Matthew15:5-9. Paul also taught the same .2Corinthians 9:6-14, Philippians 2:4-5. Aaron was given unto Moses, the Levite tribe was given unto Aaron, the eleven tribes of Israel were given unto Levite tribe to serve them but we Christians are purchased through the blood of Christ we are no man servants but servants of Christ 1Corinthians 7:21-2 , God is our father and our readily help in times of needs and not men. We are warned not to call any man our father in the spirit. Mathew23:9. Some have made men their fathers and call them fathers turning them their gods on earth. Numbers 3:9-15. No servant can hinder children access to the Father and His blessed inheritance. Are pastors, priest and Bishops in the Royal Priesthood of Christ or are in the Leviticus priesthood? Who ordinate pastors only to work for Christ for a living. Apostles of Christ worked with their hands for a living and for preaching the Gospel of Christ. All saved Christians are servants of Christ in the Royal Priesthood of Christ. Do we make the spiritual understanding between the Leviticus Priesthood under the law and the Royal Priesthood in grace in the New Covenant or do we mix the two distinctive priesthoods cunningly for selfish gain to eliminate the so called clergy poverty and mess up with the doctrine of salvation in Grace? Christ gave some apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and some teachers for the perfecting of saint in the work of the ministry for edifying the( church) body of Chris not to be deceived Ephesians4:11-19. Who set aside and allocated poverty and tithes to the pastors in preaching the Gospel of Christ for those who preach the Gospel shall live by the Gospel or who bear the burden of mercy for the clergy to teach and preach falsehood on tithes for them not to be poor? When did they become pastors in poverty for the church to eliminate their poverty? Christians should share their wealth with the clergy but not in law. We are saved in Grace in Christ love and our sharing should be in love. We are not justified by the law. Galatians 2:21. We saved Christians are servants of Christ Jesus in the Royal Priesthood of the saints. Why do many talk about key poverty of pastors on tithes among the five fold ministry? Where is their care and concerns for the other four ministries? Should the pastors ministry overshadow other ministries? All ministries should work as one body in the body of Christ. Christians should bear no apology to anyone for teaching and preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ of truth.
Those under the law are under curse and the law kills 2 Corinthians 3:6. Those lead by the Spirit are not under law and curses Galatians5: 6, Galatians 3:8-13. Christians are redeemed from the curse of the law to adoption of sons .Galatians4:4- 5.
.Are they telling Christians curses under law are blessings for them or they have powers to remove curses when Christians tithe to them? Christians must remain spiritually alert and be not be spiritually blind, They have directed Christians to deceptive ways of curses for their own benefits and not blessings. The bounty of terror of deceptive covetousness is professionally tactically presented as blessing based on salvation under yard stick of tithes. Many pastors have illegally allocated all tithes to themselves. Tithes were for specifics needs under old covenant for specific people help. Apostles of CHRIST did not use concealed deceptive covetousness to preach the Gospel .1Thessalonians2:3-6.We should renounce hidden things of dishonesty and not walk craftily handling the Word of God deceitfully 2Corithians 4:1-2. The body of CHRIST has been subjected to doctrinal mess by Levite priests and Levite pastors. TITHE IS A PURE SLEEK DOCTRINAL FALSEHOOD FOR CHRISTIANS CULTIVATED IN UNMATCHED PERSONAL CONCEALED ZEAL BY PASTORS IN LEADERSHIP FOR PERSONAL INTERESTS AND GAINS WHO UNDERSTAND UNIVERSALLY ON TITHES AND SALVATION AND FAIL TO APPRECIATE THE TIME OF LAW AND THE TIME OF GRACE DISPENSATION. In willful deception by calling themselves the Levites of today who persecuted Christians and plunder Christians pockets today they are able to demand to be given tithes. Levites priests and elders never gave a helping hand to Christians. Christ did not leave His Church under Leviticus Priesthood. Leviticus Priesthood is forced on the throats of Christians by pastors for perfectly concealed selfish interests and gains. Do they want to tell us that Christ and Apostles of Christ forgot to ask for tithes during the formative Christian Ministry stage. When we take the Word of God out of its content and contest ,we have contempt for the Word of God. He (GOD)who brought tithing under the old Covenant took it away in His(CHRIST) own rights in the new Covenant.
We can preach the Word of God quoting scriptures like the devil when he tested Jesus or quote the scriptures like CHRIST when He answered satan in time of need. Matthew 4:1-11 . Jesus Christ taught men can teach commandments of men for doctrines. Mathew15:5-9. This addressed falsehood which can come from those in authority in the Church ( bishops, pastors, priest and elders) leadership. We can have a zeal of faith and commitment to establish our own righteousness not according to righteousness of God in the knowledge of his Word. Roman 10:1-4. Pastors and priests calling themselves Levites today have capitalized on low level Christian doctrinal knowledge teachings among Christians. Tithing contradict the doctrine of salvation in GRACE and deprive the Christians in Loyal Priesthood in Christ Jesus the individual empowerment to do the Great Commission. When we are loyal Priests to whom do we tithe to? Is it not even if it were in Natural world for servants to tithe to Loyal Priests? Pastors Priest and Bishops are also in the Loyal Priesthood of Jesus Christ all of us being sons and servants composing the body of Christ unless they exclude themselves. The underlying mystery is to deliver the Church of Christ in concealed form to Leviticus Priesthood for Priests ,Pastor and Bishops to enable them get tithes. Mathew15:5-9. We can preach the Word of God making the Church a house of merchandise to make merchandise of Christians and those who do so whose God is their belly which made Adam and Eve to fail in their relationship with God .It is a lucrative profitable business based on arithmetic of numbers cunningly preserved with tactical appreciations to the body of Christ and spreading of the Gospel. Are elect Christians deceived out of their wits? Romans 16:17 -19 ,2 Peter 2:1-3, John 2:16, Philppians3:17-19. We can preach Christ out of envy, strife or of good will. Philippians 1:15-17,2Corinthians4:1-2. It is the body of Christ the Church which is sent to preach to the world also as individuals brethren bearing the burden to preach to the world as Apostles of Christ did. The responsibility has not been on shoulders of priests and pastors only. Brethren are the loyal priests and ambassadors of Christ and has committed unto us the Church the word of reconciliation, 2 Corinthians :19-20. THERE WERE NO FENCE SITTINGS AND ARE NO FENCE SITTINGS IN THE NEW COVENANT MINISTRY MEDIATED BY OUR APOSTLE AND THE HIGH PRIEST OF OUR FAITH LORD JESUS CHRIST. Apostles labored with their hand to provide for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Christians offerings they received were not tithes. No one is specially chosen to be at receiving end of tithes so as to preach the Gospel of Christ. We saved Christians are the Loyal Priests AND Ambassadors of Christ.2 Peter 2:1-9, 2 Corinthians5:14-20.
Tithing is a hard topic to teach without spiritual understanding since we have many high profile elite preachers teaching on the same with books written of great hoped promises and condemnation on the same for those who do not tithe, Ephesians 5:6-7, 1Thessalonians 2:3-4. Some well educated elite Christians are involved in deceptive teaching on tithes which is warmly appreciated from the pulpit. They are the magnetizing force with alluring great hoped blessed promises of wealth based on tithes. When will it dawn on them that they teach doctrine of men a false doctrine on tithes for Christians saved by grace. On moving from church to church or by taking a flight from continent to continent on falsehood mission, lies taught on tithes by them cannot be justified by cost incurred to do so. Only when they uphold the truth and uplift Christ as they decrease and Christians stop earthly social status cult adoration in respect of human beings. Pharisees and the Scribes were most well educated and Jesus said woe unto them seven times for being stumbling blocks in faith. Mathew 23:9-39. We only need to rightly divide the Word of God and know whether we are Christians seeking salvation under the law or we are Christians saved by grace in Christ through the Spiritual law of love, Corinthians 1:12-16,2 Timothy 2:15 . We redeemed sons of God who are made Kings and priests unto God have a common inheritance in Christ Jesus, Galatians 4:4-5, Colssians1:9-14 ,1Corinthians 2:12-16. Revelation 1;4-6 .Let well educated brethren teach the Word of God the same way as learned Doctor Luke and Br. Paul did for spiritual growth of the body of Christ. Let well educated Christians stand for justice like Dr . Gamaliel who was a doctor of law who in his response rescued the apostles from eminent death in the hands of Levite priests. We are called spiritual sons of God after salvation not before in fallen state and who are enabled to do the righteousness that was in the law but we are not under the law. The same priests and pastors wreck the spiritual scriptures when they teach fallen Angles are called sons of God who married daughters of men giving offspring of giants , Genesis 6:1-8. God says he has never called any angles his son, Hebrew 1:4-5.When were fallen angles redeemed and sanctified to be called sons? The ownership of increased daughters is unto men before being referred to as sons of God and the lust to polygamous marriage was with men. Are beautiful daughters born today for men? Shall we have another episode of fallen angles marrying daughters of men before the close of age? Many have taught the Word of God outside Biblical doctrines so many are deceived in their teaching and preaching which condemn God as unjust since no judgment is passed to angles they refer to as sons of God. When men dropped further from grace when they practiced polygamous marriage and their life span was reduced to one hundred and twenty years , no judgment is passed to purposed angles they teach us sons of God. The sons of God were men who had done reconciliation to God the same way Abel had done and was accepted by God. The judgment is specifically to mankind and giants born in sin of polygamous marriage do not qualify the sons of God to be angles. Angles are ministering spirits with no reproductive empowerment, Matthew 22:29-32, Hebrew 1:14-14.
Our relationship to God our Father is in love in our loyal priesthood to the world. Roman 8:14-17. Only those who are not sincere mix teaching under carnal law and spiritual teaching enlightenment under spiritual law. When we study the old covenant it should help us get rooted deeply in the new covenant. The devil uses the nobles, evil and false witness to do his will according to circumstances, Acts 13;50-51 Acts 6: 9-14. Christians must remain wise and not be cheated by devils workers transforming themselves as angles of light which corrupt the Word of God, 2Corinthians2:17, 2Corinthians11: 13-15. Levites Pastor, Priests and some Christians misquote Jesus Christ on judgment. Judge not that you may be not judged . Matthew7:1-5. They say God prohibit judgment which is not true since it is based on taking the scripture out of content and contest on understanding Jesus statement. It has given them a highway of teaching lies without being questioned. They have separated themselves from the body of Christ to ideal entity who cannot be censured. Shall you close your eyes to evils committed that they may not judge you. Do you buy yourself freedom from being judged for not condemning evil or commenting on anything positive or negative. The preaching of the Word of God is based on judgment on sins and righteousness . God requires from us righteous judgment in wisdom and in love which condemn sins which leads man to repentant of sins and redemption. The Word of God in its content and contest states judgment on sins and righteousness. All living beings and organic life are in constant judgment for existent. If we can stop all processes of judgments life will come to a standstill and ultimate death with final judgment of decay. Life and all creation were established in good judgment by God and close of age shall end in judgment to eternal life or eternal death which is eternal life of suffering and separation from God. Genesis 1:1-31, Genesis 2:1-25. Even our bodies judge us out of energy and we hunger for food and thirst for water. All witty discoveries are results of acknowledgment of positive judgments on active well coordinated principals. Christians are encouraged to solve cases in judgment among themselves. 1Corinthians 6:1-7,The Bible encourage us that our love may abound yet more in knowledge and in all Judgment and we judge ourselves dead in Christ, 2 Corinthians5:14 ,Philippians 1:9-12. Life is in active constant judgments and the creation mourns for final judgment which it shall be subjected by God. We relate in evaluation to all things in judgment. What we known and do not know is based on judgment. What we believe right or wrong is based on judgment. Irrespective of any judgment delivered on us we should delivers the Heavenly Kingdom judgment to sins . We saved Christians are counted and judged worthy to suffer tribulations together with Christ when we live Christian life in love ,Revelation Chapter1,2 and3. We thus judge ourselves dead in Christ.
There are may be those who preach tithing to saved Christians for lack of spiritual understanding. We should girdle up the loins of our minds as the knowledgeable wise sharers of the Word of God . 1Peter :13-15.Roman 10:1-4. We shall be off the hook of being soothed ,cornered, and been cheated on doctrinal issue in Christianity. God bless us in abundant grace of spiritual revelation and spiritual understanding of His Holy Word, Colssians1:9-14, Ephesians 5:6 -7,1Thessalonians 2:3-6, 2Timothy2:15, 2Timothy 2:24-26 . Amen

I always like to recap on tithing because so many people do it. I’ve been studying this for 15 years plus on and off. During this time I haven’t tithed, that’s not to say I haven’t given as God has suggested and that hasn’t been often. I used to tithe many years ago and I was poor as one could get, during that time I observed my pastor going on holidays twice a year. When I stopped tithing the windows of heaven opened, even 2 years ago someone gave me £10,000 (praise Jesus). Tithing is a hoax but giving whatever God lays on your heart through praying isn’t and that ‘whatever’ literally means anything not just monetary. Thx for an excellent article.
This is such a disturbing topic,,so confusing,,,the bible say salvation is for free,,then your told you need to tithe to be blessed and to be protected if you happen to loose your wallet with money ,your told its bus ypur not tithing God is not protecting you,,,,my question is that the truth is that no one is yet full perfect ,,so if God’s blessings still depend on what we do and all so honestly what hope do we have,,,bcs you might be tithing and struggling with e.g. patience,anger,whatever ,,therevwil, all way be something u ntill our Lord comes and give us the Glorious body,perfect body,so if I go to my pastor and tell him I am tithing but not seeing results and he tells me maybe I have a grudge with someone ,,,that means I cnt really expect any blessing from God bus I am far from being perfect,,each day God is working out something in me to be a better person ,but it’s mot instant for my character and personality to be confirmed to that of my Lord,,,Lord Jesus help us….
Jesus became the curse to set us free from the law, sin and death. Amen we a free from tithing – period!

Tithes crusaders teach well packaged tithes falsehood from the pulpit managed humbly in sheep skins. Christians are increasingly facing common mounted front in tithes falsehood which is demanded by elites clergies as a Christian doctrine in Churches. It is easy for many unsuspecting Christian to take it as the Gospel truth. The remnant few faithful Christians must firmly remain in the narrow highway of faith and teach Christian doctrine on giving bearing in mind they stand on highways of interests of elites clergies on tithes falsehood taught with awkward elite professional church elders support . The humble craving of comfortable falsehood artistically and passionately taught on tithes by the clergy should not make Christians lose focus in Christian giving in love. Bishops, pastors, priests, church elders and those read the OLD TESTAMENT( Old Covenant ) BLINDED BY THE VAIL that is in law that was done away in Jesus Christ keep Christians in fear of curses under bondage of law which was abolished by Jesus Christ and miss the righteousness in liberty sanctified in Jesus Christ in the New Covenant,2Corithians3: 6-18 . Successful prosperity based on falsehood cannot be accepted as a measure of blessing in holiness. Truth is easily dismissed but never nullified on tithes falsehood openly taught by the clergy. Christians must remain Pentecostal and evangelical in the Royal Priesthood of Jesus Christ without entangling themselves in Leviticus Priesthood bound in bondage of the law. We are persuaded of better things in our work of liberty in love in salvation by Grace for God is not unrighteous to forget our work and labour of love , Hebrew6:9-12, Galatians 5:1, 18. IF SAVED CHRISTIANS WHO ARE LOYAL PRIESTS (clergy under Loyal Priesthood of Jesus Christ) ARE SUBJECTED BACK TO THE LAW,THEN THEY SHOULD SURELY EQUALLY SHARE TITHES WITH THE CLERGY FRATERNITY. Christ came to not to destroy the law and the prophets but to fulfill so as the enmity that was against us in the law was abolished on the cross. Falsehood is taught that Christ came to strength the law. A way in love by Grace in Jesus Christ’s love for mankind was established for our salvation after Christ fulfilled the prophecy and the law and He defeated the enmity of law that was against us.

The Church of Christ is founded in love by grace and a worker in preaching the Gospel will live by the Gospel is worthy his labor. Bro Paul did not apportion the spreading of the Gospel as the only work for the early Christian reward in daily bread hence the notion for not eating for those who were not working being busybodies among early Christians, 2Thesaalonians 3:8-15. Paul taught brethren to work with their own hands, 1Thessalonians 4:11-12. What would happen if all Royal Priests ( saved Christians ) apportion themselves the only labour of spreading the Gospel? We would go back to the same situation Paul had with busybodies. Yet those who solely preach the Gospel should get support from brethren and from their labour in preaching the Gospel ( those that wait at the altar including apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers) beside if they have to get more rewards of doing other jobs quietly and eat their own bread.. 1Corithians 9: 1-14. Disciples of Jesus Christ laboured with their own hands in spreading the Gospel and did not receive tithes. Jesus called Peter and Andrew his brother and made them fishers of men, Matthew 4:18-20. When Peter went fishing with other disciples after death of Jesus Christ, it was normal to them. Peter did not say he was to borrow a boat, fishing lines and net to go fishing. It was trade he had upheld. JESUS CHRIST did not rebuke His disciples for fishing beside spreading the Gospel when He appeared unto them after resurrection John21:1-25. We do not expose to poverty the Royal Priesthood of Jesus Christ from the tribe of Juda for not tithing as some exhibit in their teachings since the Royal Priesthood of Christ for Christians is not founded on Leviticus Priesthood under the law.

There are may be those who preach tithing to saved Christians for lack of spiritual understanding. We should girdle up the loins of our minds as the knowledgeable wise sharers of the Word of God . 1Peter :13-15.Roman 10:1-4. We shall be off the hook of being soothed ,cornered, and been cheated on doctrinal issue in Christianity, 2Timothy4:3-4. When we stand for truth we build the body of Jesus Christ, in contradiction to accusation of bringing down the church. Those feelings were there when PENTECOSTAL AND EVANGELICAL Movements came into play. The cleansing bloom is more on them. Those who cannot bear the Holy Bible Doctrine in Christians giving condemn themselves. In truth the Church grows stronger, regrets and dismay are removed from our Spiritual Christian life growth since we do not wear the coat of hypocritical harm. The storm of tithe falsehood is halted and bears no apology. When we expose falsehood as God is clear in HIS Word that we Christians should be spiritually awake and aware of false preaching and teaching, we shy not being falsely accused. God bless us in abundant grace of spiritual revelation and spiritual understanding of His Holy Word, Colssians1:9-14, Ephesians 5:6 -7,1Thessalonians 2:3-6, 2Timothy2:15, 2Timothy 2:24-26 .

IN NEW TESTAMENT two priesthood are compared and the need to replace the Old Covenant expounded. Hebrew7: 7-28, Hebrew8:6 -13, Hebrew 9:6-9, Hebrew 10:8-23. Surprisingly the comparison intended in verses referred to under Old Covenant are false fully endorsed as justification for tithes as the purposed comparison intention between the old Covenant and the New Covenant for better choice is cunningly phased out in a hoodwink halve way scripture reading crafted from the pulpit. A flood gate of falsehood is humbly opened from the pulpit of quoting scriptures out of content and contest. Leviticus priesthood under the law with tithes, death, discontinuity and its acceptance under glory of the law without the great commission was done away in Christ Jesus and the Holy Priesthood of Jesus Christ without tithes, death and discontinuity with exceeding glory that excel in New Covenant under which Christians are in salvation being a Holy nation and Loyal Priests with a duty to preach to the world GOD being their Father in New Covenant Ministry. We cannot turn the grace of our God unto lust. Jude1:4. In that He said, a new covenant He has made the first old. Now that which decays and waxed old is ready to vanish away Hebrew8:6-13.

Hebrew 10 : 8-10, 8 Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law), 9 then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, [a]O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. 10 By that will we have been [b]sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Roman10:1-4, 10 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for [a]Israel is that they may be saved. 2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.Christians saved by grace are not debtors to law for them to pay tithes.
28 “The rest of the people—priests, Levites, gatekeepers, musicians, temple servants and all who separated themselves from the neighboring peoples for the sake of the Law of God, together with their wives and all their sons and daughters who are able to understand— 29 all these now join their fellow Israelites the nobles, and bind themselves with a curse and an oath to follow the Law of God given through Moses the servant of God and to obey carefully all the commands, regulations and decrees of the Lord our Lord.
This alone tells us if tithing is a blessing or curse…
All i can say is if you feel confused about to tithe or not, I would really recommend you to talk to God personally and let him guide you through his Holy Spirit and through his word. let him put in your heart what he wants you to do. I understand that Jesus took every sin and that we who are no longer in curse. Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written ;Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.so those for those who are in Christ are no longer in curse anymore but if you feel to like giving a tithe or a offering go for it don’t wait and let God be the one guiding you.
