I recently came across this list of ten benefits of tithing and I thought it would be nice to share the list with the readers of Gather Little by Little. I have also included Scripture references for you to check out if you desire along with some editorial comments.

See if you agree:

  1. God is pleased by your obedience. Malachi 3:10 Regular giving is a sign of obedience to Christ. We prove our lover for Christ by obeying his commands.
  2. God is honored by your faithfulness. Proverbs 3:9 He deserves our faithfulness.
  3. Tithing helps to keep your priorities straight. Matthew 6:21 I believe that giving to the Lord is the number one priority for a believer.
  4. You are eligible for a blessing. Malachi 3:10 But remember, the blessing is not always monetary – God has not promised “health and wealth” to the Christian. The believer is to be content in whatever state he is placed and God has promised to shield us from trials that we are not strong enough to face.
  5. Guards Christians from selfishness. Acts 20:35 Tithing reminds us that ultimately our money does not belong to us.
  6. God loves a cheerful giver. II Corinthians 9:6-12 Are you excited about the opportunity to serve God with your finances?
  7. Tithing supports the Great Commission. Matthew 28:19,20 Your tithe should go to your local church and God has chosen to work through the church during this ages.
  8. Tithing ensures that your needs will be met. Matthew 6:33 God has promised that our needs will be met. Needs – but not necessarily “wants”.
  9. Tithing helps to meet the needs of God’s people. I Corinthians 16:1,2 Hopefully your church seeks to use at least a portion of its budget to help those less fortunate.
  10. Tithing reminds us that God is the true owner and giver of all that we have. I Timothy 6:17,18 All we have belongs to God and the tithe helps to remind us of this fact.

I do not believe that the tithe must necessarily be a tenth of one’s income. The tenth was the standard for the Old Testament Jews who were governed by the Law. Today, those of us who are privileged to live under grace, are simply challenged to give regularly and willingly to the Lord’s work.

The reality is that the tithe is just the beginning of your service to Christ.

    Re: Number 4 “God has promised to shield us from trials that we are not strong enough to face.” I hear this repeated a lot in the Christian community, things like “God won’t give you more than you can handle.”
    Is there any scriptural basis for this mantra? I think the opposite is true. If God only gave us what we could handle, then why would we need God?
    When do you turn to God more often? When life is going great and there’s nothing you can’t handle, or when things are falling apart and everything looks hopeless?

  2. Pete Says:

    I think the idea in number 4 that you’re referencing comes from this verse:

    “God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength but with your testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).

    I think the verse may be talking more about temptation and sin than going through hard times, but I think that God often does give us the strength to endure our trials – when we rely on him.

  3. Matt Says:

    Certainly your last point is what I was looking for and what I think most people miss (or at least it’s not emphasized enough). With God’s help there is nothing we can’t handle; on our own, we’re pretty much doomed.

  4. rocketc Says:

    Matt, look at I Corinthians 10:13. The word “tempt” also has the meaning of “trial” or “test”:

    No temptation has overtaken you that is unusual for human beings. But God is faithful, and he will not allow you to be tempted beyond your strength. Instead, along with the temptation he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to endure it.

    Certainly, the key here is that God is the one providing the way of escape. This promise allows us to meet trials with confidence. Defeat is not an option for the believer.

  5. rocketc Says:

    Oops, I just read Pete’s comment. He already covered it.

  6. Cortni Says:

    Awesome! I recently wrote an article on the importance of tithing in tough economic times and was surprised to see many comments from Christians against tithing! http://www.crosswalk.com/finances/11578198/

  7. castocreations Says:

    My question is this…As a Christian who believes in God and believes that Jesus died for my sins, I still don’t go to church. I am a member of one but haven’t attended in several years. I tithed when I went and sometimes did give 10% but that was before marriage as my hubby pretty much forbid it.

    Since I don’t attend a church my donations go out to charities now and while not yet equal to 10% of my salary, that is my goal. Do you think that this counts as a tithe? Or does it need to go directly to the church? Some of the charities I donate to are Christian/Catholic organizations. Some are for animals.

    I always feel very guilty about this for some reason.

  8. "Mo" Money Says:

    I beleive the tithe is 10%. If you give less than 10% you are not tithing. I don’t see that changed anywhere else in the bible.

  9. Kristen Says:

    I work in an industry where we deal with many people who are in very difficult financial situations. Many of them get offended if we recommend they cut back on their church donations, so we try to be very careful about mentioning that. I think it’s great to give if you have it, but I also hate to think that churches would want someone who can’t pay their electric bill or buy groceries to give money to the church instead of feeding their family.

    I think it’s important for people in a really tough economic situation to consider that they can contribute to their church in other ways (teaching Sunday School, helping at dinners, etc.) without giving money, at least until their situation improves. But, that’s just my opinion. :)

  10. rocketc Says:

    Kristen,

    When I was part of a very successful debt counseling organization, we taught that the first step to righting one’s financial boat was to begin to tithe. We took God’s promise to meet one’s needs seriously. :)

    castocreations, I firmly believe that our regular giving should be given to the local church. God has ordained the church as the focus of the believer’s life in this age. At the same time, I do not believe that you should go against your husband’s wishes in this matter. . . but that is a whole ‘nother topic. Giving is not about guilt. Don’t feel guilty, do your best and rest in the promises of God.

    “Mo”money, the New Testament does not give the specific instructions that were handed down under the Law in the Old Testament. The rigid 10% idea is never mentioned in the NT. The NT emphasizes that we should give regularly to the work of God. The amount is up to you. 10% is a nice place to start, but the reality is that for the believer, all we have belongs to Christ.

    In Love, and gentleness…

    Rocket: Niether the curses nor the blessing in Malichi can apply to the believer in the Messiah, since as you pointed out, they are both legal tenants that should not be a basis for governing our lives as Kings & Priests, and the Sons of God.”1. God is pleased by your obedience. Malachi 3:10 Regular giving is a sign of obedience to Christ. We prove our lover for Christ by obeying his commands.” — Yes, regular giving is a sign of obedience to Christ… but not tithing. He gave no command to Gentile believers concerning the tithe. Only that we should give… and give… and give some more… there is no percentage limitation in scripture for His followers. And even then it’s only accepted according to what you have the ability to give… and not what you don’t have. 2 Cor 8

    Cortni: “Christians” are waking up to to the fact that they do not have to be slaves to the “church” – many studies have been done to prove that over 80% of tithes and offerings go to building and salaries while most attendees of the “church” go hungry and broke. You must realize that YOU ARE THE “CHURCH” not a building… and as the King, Priest, and Son of God that you are, all the provision of the Kingdom belong to you. And, I might add, not to the Corporate Fiction known as a 501(c)3. There has been no “changing of the guard” where we once again must worship by proxy through the instructions of the “spiritual” elite who dictate to their “EQUALS” in the Kingdom when, how, and why they should worship. The word poorly interpreted “church” comes from a pagan word that means “house of a god”. We on the other hand belong to the Ecclesia – a secular word that means “town counsil” hence “called out ones”. It was no mistake that the Rabbi used this word, and said that it was upon the foundation that HE is the Christ, Son of the Living God (Meshiach – Anointed King, High Priest, and Prophet) he would “establish” those who represented His authority here on earth (Ecclesia) – We are the Lively Stones, We are his house, we are His Body, We are the 1 loaf. He alone is the head!

    Humbly submitted…

  12. 1WealthBuilder Says:

    my comments dint get posted… oh well

  13. glblguy Says:

    1WeathBuilder – Fixed your comment so it now displays.

  14. castocreations (hzk) Says:

    Thank you WealthBuilder. The church where I am a member has gone through a lot of remodeling – though they did ask specifically for those donations separate from regular donations. I just really like to give my money to specific causes where I know what it will do and who it will help.

    I do often feel guilty for not going to church. Even though I DO know that the church can be just me or just me and hubby. Or whenever two people gather. :)

  15. 1WealthBuilder Says:

    Well put, castocreations.

    If you are free, then you are free to worship everywhere that “you” are.

    Unfortunately, we (like the children of Israel) want a king. So, the guy who speaks the eliquentist (not a word) and has a following, obviously should be leading our families.

    When we awaken to the truth… that anything that stands between us and the Messiah (Christ) is Anti-Messiah (well you know).

    We can no longer afford to abdicate the teaching of our families the ways of the Lord to anyone else but the heads of the home, and their Head (God is the Head of Christ, the Head of Man, the Head of the Woman) Head meaning authority and covering.

    People love to judge you and ask “why did you leave the ‘church'”… How can you separate yourself from who you are?

    As a caveat.. God still saves, fills with His Spirit, and speaks to those who walk this way. He has to. The real issue is that they can never function in their proper place in the body as long as all gifts must be submitted to the Corporate Fiction and its CEO.

    Offered without judgment…

  16. Pete Says:

    My humble opinion on the subject that while I’m not sure that 10% tithe is required biblically (I’ve seen it explained eloquently both ways), I do think that as a fruit of our faith we are required to give. For me that means giving 10% to our church, and any additional we can to sponsor a child, give to local food shelves, etc. God loves a joyful giver, and we’re doing our best to do just that. We’re debt free besides the mortgage, so for us this isn’t that hard to do.

    I’m not sure I would say that if you’re in a situation where you’re having a hard time feeding your family – that you’d still be required to give. This verse pops out at me:

    “If anyone does not take care of his own relatives, especially his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Timothy 5:8”

    Tough subject!

  17. ChristianPF Says:

    @Castocreations
    I would say be careful not being planted in a “church”. I agree that the church is not just a building, but the psalms say that those who are planted in the house of GOd will flourish, and the new testament (I believe paul) said that you should not forsake assembling as is the habit of some.

    I know from experience that church life can get tough – there are lots of imperfect people there! :) But as a brother I would encourage you to prayerfully consider attending more frequently.
    for what its worth

    @Rocket
    good post – just to look at the other side of the coin, I have heard someone say that if they tithed according to the law in the old covenant – what should we be giving by grace?

  18. 1WealthBuilder Says:

    @ChristianPF (I love that… it’s like twitter) – I also would encourage you as a brother in the Lord to be careful in directing others to “church”… as you said “it’s not just a building”… Truth is Its Not a Building At All! Never has been.

    In Davids day “planted in the House of God” referred to the tabernacle (as Solomon had not yet built the temple) and all of its requirements (sacrifices for sin, etc.). However, David being the prophet that He is, would simply now refer to our attachment to the Head, the chief cornerstone.

    Now, building off of that point (no pun intended) He is the Chief corner and we are His building – hence the “assembling” of ourselves that is forsaken by not just some, but quite a few… This can also in proper context be carried over into the Assembly of the “Body of Christ” (Where the Head properly fits).

    Most “Christians” after “planting” themselves in a “church” almost immediately begin forsaking the assembly in that 1) they wont fellowship in true love with other believers of different doctrinal backgrounds, and B)They don’t properly “discern” (I Cor 11:29 KJV)the Lords Body for what it truly is… The individual believers fitly joined together and every part providing what every other part needs.

    I humbly offer I Cor 12, Rom 12, and Eph 4 as truly synaptic (saying the same thing) on this issue. We should encourage each other to fellowship more intimately… from house to house (even if its just cell groups of larger “brick and mortar” “churches” – for herein is where relationship, accountability, free functioning of everyone’s gifts, and true communion can be realized.

    Submitted in Love and service…

  19. Matt Says:

    @ChristianPF C.S. Lewis challenges us to tithe to the point of poverty. That’s a tall order, and one I’m thus far unable to swallow… Any thoughts?

  20. rocketc Says:

    Good thoughts and discussion – all. Just a couple of comments:

    I think the tithe is a great place to start, but certainly not the end of our giving.

    The NT does connect promises to giving, I chose OT passages here, but probably would have been more consistent to stick with the NT.

    The church is not a building, yet the local church or local assembly is the focus of God’s plan for mankind today. Numerous passages bear out the idea that the believer is to seek out and remain faithful to a local assembly of believers. Paul and John addressed their letters to specific bodies of belivers. Paul started numerous churches. The passage states that “where two or three are gathered, there am I” does not call that gathering a “church”. God simply states that He will be present. Another familiar passage is that the church is the “pillar and ground” of the truth.

    With that I will close. Thanks for your time!

  21. 1WealthBuilder Says:

    Well put Rocket…

    Jesus said, “Unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees…”

    I have always felt that 10% is the minimumumum we can do. Our lives as localized and global believers should be an open readiness to expend all for our brothers.

    Love to all….

  22. 007agentgrace Says:

    I don’t BUY it. Prosperity peachers are the only ones who prosper from teaching a FAKE meaning of tithes. Malachi 3:10 has absolutely nothing to do with your weekly pay check. Tithes were specific animals, crops from the land, that HAD to be BURNT unto the Lord using specific methods, and placed upon a divinely created alter, NOT to be offered on any old alter. Tithes were offered ONCE a year, sometimes every three years..The tithe was typically BLOOD SACRIFICES for sin and specific crops that were shared with the Widows, orphans and aliens. This is how God doesn’t change. Jesus was the ONLY perfect sacrifice and to be a pure Christian we are to take care of the WIDOWS, orphans and aliens, not make a preacher rich-who doesn’t take care of the widows orphans and strangers. Why should they be treated better than Jesus, who at times didn’t have a place to rest his head? There were 613 Jewish laws, and tithing was just one of them, and if we practice one law we are to practice ALL of them. This means your fake tithe preaching preacher should be preaching not to eat BBQ pork, bacon, pork chops, and stay away from leven bread, and be certain to circumcise your children…and telling his members not to touch a woman on her period and to stay away from the temple for 7 days until she is done…These were laws too, but nobody talks about them. Fake preacher like to twist scriptures to INVENT ways to get your money. They’ll even tell you they didn’t have money back then so this is why you give money instead. NOT TRUE, they had money, as early as Genesis…Anyone who believes if they tithe their weekly pay check and in return they’ll receive a financial blessing so big their bank account cannot contain it has been banboozled. Force Tithing is the biggest Christian con game. Watch out for false apostles they make merchandize of your soul. They’re cunning, they draw men unto themselves…Nobody will testify acount their bankruptcy, foreclosures, only their mysterious tax return…forking over hundreds of dollars a month…when you can’t afford is steals from your children, and your retirement, the dream of owning a house!

  23. Matt Says:

    If you are putting the ‘dream of owning a house’ before your charitable giving then it is an idol. If the bible is God breathed then tithing is in there for a reason. Yes Jesus fulfilled the law, but that doesn’t mean we have nothing to learn from it. A 10% tithe is a good starting place, but all Christians should be giving as the Spirit leads us. Whether that is to our local church organization, to international aid, sponsoring children, supporting missionaries, or wherever isn’t as important as out attitude about our own giving. We shouldn’t feel required to give; we should desire to do so. The Lord loves a cheerful giver.

    BTW, blood sacrifices for sin were offered on the Day of Atonement on behalf of the nation of Israel and we’re not a part of the tithe AFAIK. Tithe was for the tribe of Levites to live off of. They did not receive a share of the land, but instead were to got the tithe of the other 11 tribes for their work as priests. (Numbers 18:21)

  24. Daniel Says:

    Re: tithing not being 10% – you do realize that the word tithe means 10 percent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tithe)? I always have a hard time with people’s reluctance to accept a tithe as being 10%. I realize that it began with the Jews, however, if you want to follow the Old Testament you could always follow Jesus’ advice to the rich young ruler: “Sell everything you have, and give the money to the poor.”

    Jesus never let us off the hook as far as the law he gave in the Old Testament – he simply fulfilled it and gave it a higher purpose. If someone can’t give God a measly 10% of their income (you truly cannot outgive God – while that’s not a good motivation, I think it’s worth saying that if you’re faithful you CAN afford 10% or more) I’d question why. I think 10% is a starting point (I’d at least make it a goal to get there soon) not a destination. Someone way better than I had a goal to give God 90% and live on 10% (which we may be able to do once we’re debt free and have a good nest egg) – what better way to put God first?

    Hello there, just doing some research for my 7 for all Mankind site. Lots of information out there. Looking for something else, but cool site. Have a great day.

  26. Lillian Says:

    Tithing helps you out, God does not need your money he is making a way to bless you. God is a god of order and he cannot go against or contradict his word. The tithe is 10% of your gross income and you are not giving until you have giving above the tithe (offerings). I dont care if all you have left after giving the tithe is 1 cent, give and it shall be giving to you, good measure pressed down and running over. He is the God that multiplies your seed and he is your source. God said prove him now that he will open the windows of heaven and poor you out a blessing that you do not have room enough to receive. You must believe in God more that you believe in the mortgage co, power co, or government. Let God be true and every man a liar.

    Even if you are behind on your bills, put God first, confess the word, meaning you say what the word of God says about your situation by thanking him that he has already gone before you and made the crooked places straight and he already knew what was going to happen because nothing takes him by surprise so that means he has already made a way for you, you just have to believe and thank God for he is a God that cannot lie. You can rob God now and things in your life may seem to go well for the moment but later is always longer that now. David said he was young and now he is old and he has never seen the righteous forsaken nor their seed begging bread. If you want to give God a “sick” offering, meaning less than 10% of your gross, then you need to keep your money because your going to need it. God can’t bless you the way he wants to when you go against his word.

    He who makes provisions for this life alone is wise for a moment but a fool forever…

  27. FRED UP Says:

    I’m not against supporting my church, just mandatory laws that God never gave the Christian churches. Tithing, keeping Leviticus laws like Saturday Sabbath, the Pass Over Feast, Circumcision & tithing were never given to one Gentile Christian to keep, period!

    Twelve Negatives of Tithe Legalist:

    1). In various churches Tithing is taught like paying a bill as if one must buy the free grace and favor of God when Jesus declared from his Cross “Paid in full. Not Pay in full. This misrepresents the love, mercy and character of Jesus. Romans 10:4 Christ is the endd of the law for every believer. Romans 8:32 God with His Son freely gives us all things.

    2). Mandatory tithe teaching takes all the focus off the payment Jesus made and places it on the money people pay. They then feel they paid for their blessing and some even feel they paid for their salvation, instead of Jesus.
    Tithe teaching in some cases is a slippery slop into heresy where some are preaching tithe for salvation. The bible is clear that man was helpless to save himself which is why Jesus had to come save a lost & dying world.

    3). Tithe boasting produces pride in works and diminishes the work of grace threw faith in Jesus, thus producing self glorification, and self reliance.

    4). ENFORCED TITHING throws redeemed Christians back under an Old Covenant which they were never given. Christians came to God under a completely separate and different (New) Covenant based on the payment Jesus made for us on the Cross.

    5). Enforced tithing makes Christians believe they came to God under the Old Covenant of performance and works. God never gave one Gentile the tithe law!
    Galatians 4:30 God said “Cast out the bond woman and her son for she shall not inherit the promise with the free woman” Paul said this is an allegory (ANALOGY) of Law vs. Grace. Bible illiterates have no on the difference in Old Covenant vs New. They need to read and re-read Galatians 3:13, Gal. 5:4 Gal.3:24 & 25, Hebrews 8:6 & 7
    Romans 8:3, Hebrews 7:2

    6). Most Christians are ignorant to the fact that Devout Orthodox Jews this day no longer pay tithes but give free will offerings. God specified all Tithes be given in a specific manner. Only the Tribe of Levi was authorized to collect the tithes from those Tribes who were given an allotment of the Promised Canaan Land.

    7). Jesus did not promote tithing even to the proud tithing Pharisees in Matthew 23:23 AND THEY WERE JEWS UNDER THE LEVITICAL LAW BEFORE JESUS SAID PAID IN FULL. JESUS said tithing was not even the most important aspect of the law. Yes Jesus called it a law

    8). No One can find one mandatory command from God to Gentile Christians to keep the tithe law, infact the bible is clear that no man is justified by keeping any law. We now have the Holy Spirit as a guide the bible is clear the law saved no one it only pointed out our sin and need of grace.

    9). Galatians 2:16 know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified.

    10). Paid in full means Paid in full, not 80 percent but 100 percent

    11). Abraham was not justified by his voluntary one time tithe to Melchizedek
    Romans 4:2 If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had
    something to boast about–but not before God.

    12). Tither boast in their tithe record and give it the credit instead of the payment Jesus made on the cross

    13 Bonus one: Christ has redeemed us from the curse which means they have no right to quote the Malachi 3:8-9 curse to the Lord’s redeemed to collect tithes.
    Those redeemed by Christ can give as the Holy Spirit leads and guides.

  28. FRED UP Says:

    Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us– for it is written, “CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE “–
    So this pretty much voids the Malachi 3 curse which anyone who has read their whole bible would know was to a completely different nation called the Nation of Israel before Jesus ushered us into the Dispensation of grace. If you are redeemed you have God’s favor free of charge.
    It is not being obedient to keep one Levitical law which was never given to one Gentile Christian. James 2:10 says to keep one law and break the others voids them all!

  29. FRED UP Says:

    Galatians 3:13-14 Christ redeemed us from the curse, Christ redeemed us from the curse, Christ redeemed us from the curse…

    Keep repeating this till you actually believe it. Don’t accept a curse in Malachi for not tithing. Christ redeemed us from the curse.. this includes, sickness, poverty and lack.
    Christ redeemed us from the curse, that’s it keep repeating it, some Christians have had a life time of brainwashing on paying those tithes.

    Col.2:14 He nailed the ordinances that was against us to the cross.

  30. Isaac Says:

    tithing indeed re-affirms our dependence on God and acknowledges him as our only source.

  31. Louis Says:

    Tithing is not a practice of OT Law, tithing was established years before the Law. Please study to show thyself approved and do not lead others into unfaithfulness by assumptions. Abraham tithed to Melchizidek, he wasn’t bound by the Law to do it. Also if you believe the Law should require us to do less, Jesus said if you look at a woman to lust, it’s adultery, where the Law said the actual act of sleeping with a woman was adultery. Under grace we are held to a higher standard of faithfulness. Please remove your “opinion” on tithing and do not cause any more of your brothers and sisters to stumble in regards to giving.

  32. phil Says:

    to Matt-
    Is there any scriptural basis for this mantra? I think the opposite is true. If God only gave us what we could handle, then why would we need God?
    ans: read 1st Corinthians 10 vs 13 and this is assured to those in the Lord which is 1 of many reasons why we need God

    When do you turn to God more often? When life is going great and there’s nothing you can’t handle, or when things are falling apart and everything looks hopeless?
    ans: turning to God shouldn’t be like “more often” but as soon as you see the light that’s when you turn to Him and stay in Him. when life is great you give thanks but when things are falling apart you ask for strength.

  33. onasis Says:

    i have been tithing for years now and has seen my life transformed from just an ordinary person to a somebody.

    try it!! Results are there.
    God bless you all Tithers!

  34. 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 priests lie by quoting tithes in Malachi 3:1-18,under the law IN OLD COVENANT which was a prime contribution for the Levite tribe and Leviticus Priesthood, 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 bride and body of Jesus Christ? Saved Christians by grace IN NEW COVENANT who are lead and taught by the Holy Spirit are not under law or in generation curse in the law. Tithes in Malachi 3:1-18 were primarily for the tribe of Levi which was not allocated land for sharing among themselves , Numbers 18:20-28 . Those who simply imply Christians are under curse for not tithing put into question about unfinished work of redemption (SALVATION) by Christ Jesus on cross of Calvary which is bought and maintained continuously in tithes paid to them. Yet Christ is not ashamed to call us brethren whom He has sanctified. Hebrew 2:9-13.We have been redeemed from the curse of the law, Jesus Christ being made a curse for us : for it is written, cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree. Galatians 3:8-13. Christians saved by grace are able ministers of the new testament born of love with exceeding glory which surpassed the glory that was in law with Moses. Offerings made in Christian Churches are for ministering the Body of Jesus Christ. We have been redeemed from the curse of the law to adoptions of sons in Royal Priesthood from the time the curtain partitioning the Holy of Holies was torn apart in into two when Jesus Christ was crucified and gave us free access to God our Father, Mathews 27:50-52. Pastors ,Priest and Bishops who are servants of God cannot subject sons of God in Royal Priesthood to tithe taxes which is absolutely illegal for we are not under the curse of the law, Galatians 5:1, Galatians4:4-5,2 Corinthians 3:1-18. Sins sacrifices ,offerings under the law, curses, and generation curses under law in the old covenant remained up to death of Jesus Christ on Calvary when He fulfilled the prophecy and requirements of the law. 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 fallen state of Adam and Eve at the garden of Aden. Those who lie would like to deceive Christians that tithe was before the law but before which law. When Christ our High Priest was born He was given gifts and not tithes Mathew 2:11-12. Jesus Christ our High Priest and Apostles of Jesus Christ did not ask for tithes. To whom do they pay allegiance to for them to justify asking for tithes today? 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 which belonged to the tribe of Levi, tithes were given to Levites priests for use by the whole 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 (for Christians saved by grace )and not by works of law under curse ,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 Priests) are servants of God worthy all respects and due help. Much preaching is done in grace and love to Christians at early stages who are later sleeking entangled and enslaved in fear under the bondage of law in tithes emphatically taught by many in seeking dwindling fortune entrenched in tithes falsehood. The Church of Christ is founded in love by grace and a worker is worthy his labor. The Apostles and disciples of Jesus Christ understood from onset of Christ’s Ministry that they were not under Leviticus Priesthood and had no share in Leviticus Priesthood allotments. Thus questions were raised of their take and benefits in the Royal Priesthood of Jesus Christ Ministry in the New Covenant, Mathew 19:23-30 . Leviticus Priesthood which was upheld under the glory and the righteousness of law without partiality had allotments which existed before well-known and were already defined in obliged tithing. God had also to deal with wayward priesthood and a rebellious nation under the law. Malachi 2:1-17, Malachi 3:1-18. Christians were never left under leadership of Leviticus Priesthood. Christians are humbly called upon to support tithes sweetened falsehood purposed to enhance good glorious intentions communicated a smart way which forms practically some mega success which should not divert Christians from free spiritual giving. The essence of Christians righteousness in salvation by grace in the Loyal Priesthood of Jesus Christ is more falsely tied to tithes by the clergy and the bar raised often higher as they become masters of confusion in tithes falsehood teaching. Even Judas Iscariot is not recorded asking for tithes. We firmly stand by the truth our mouths being boldly louder and we faint not as we manifest the truth to man’s conscience to God without honoring personality clout in uncovering tithes falsehood taught,2Corinthians 4:1-2.They keep asking what is wrong with us to be at pains on tithes forced falsehood treasured? There is nothing wrong with us and we have wronged no one except those who stumble on the plain truth who want to appease in altered falsehood.
    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. 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. 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:-13. God related with Adam and Eve in the garden of Aden under command of not eating from tree of knowledge and evil , Abraham related to God in faith when he was called out of Ur. The Israel related to God under law given to Moses under old the Covenant and we saved Christians relate to God under Spiritual law of love by grace in Jesus Christ in New Covenant where we get our salvation. 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 and Jesus Christ did not choose Priesthood among the five fold ministry since all saved Christians are in the Royal Priesthood of Christ and we have been asked to give ourselves as living sacrifice. 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 Hebrews 7:7-12. Christ requested His disciples to give the crowd food to eat , Matthew 14:15-16. Jesus Christ told Peter look after his lambs and later to look after His sheep ( service) in clear shift from Leviticus priesthood which does not apply to Christians, John 21:15-17. JESUS CHRIST our High Priest is the mediator of the better New Covenant established upon better promises. Hebrew8:6-8. Under Leviticus priesthood an animal for sacrifice was alive between the altar 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 altar 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. Christians saved by grace in love of Christ Jesus in Royal Priesthood within the New Covenant cannot be dragged back to curses enslavement in the law in Leviticus Priesthood in Old Covenant. The Royal Priesthood of labor of service in Christ Jesus is loathed by many clergy who opt for Leviticus Priesthood of waiting at the sanctuary for provision given for altar sacrifices. It is only through concealed falsehood that the clergy merge the Leviticus Priesthood under law in old Covenant ( which remained hostile to Christians), with the Royal Priesthood by grace in Christ love liberated in New Covenant. The Royal Priesthood of Jesus Christ bears no self-restrictions or inhibitions in fear of men in preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ since it has no people driven demand support pegged on expectations anchored under the law. Christians should give liberally in love as God has blessed us ,2 Corinthians9 :6-7, Galatians 5:1. Galatians6:6-10. Tithes crusader 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 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 (Covenant ) BLINDED BY THE VAIL that is in law that was done away in Jesus Christ keep Christians in fear under bondage of law which is abolished 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 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. IF SAVED CHRISTIANS WHO ARE LOYAL PRIESTS (clergy under Loyal Priesthood of Jesus Christ) ARE SUBJECTED BACK TO THE LAW,THEN THEY SHOULD 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. Without fulfilled prophesy and law there would be no room for grace. Before HIS DEATH THE LAW WAS UPHELD TO THE LETTER .Mathew5:17-19, Ephesians 2:4—20. He paved the narrow highway of righteousness in salvation by grace, Isaiah35:1-10. Tithes falsehood nullifies grace and love bestowed on them by Jesus Christ. Those who want to seek salvation under law with curses of the law should continue in glory of the law and fulfill the whole law without entangling salvation by grace in Christ’s love with law in any lewd manner since the glory in law in old testament at fault (where God found faults with them) was to be done away and was abolished, 2Corinthians 3:1-18 Galatians2:16-21, Galatians3:1-13 ,Galatians4:4-5, Hebrew8:6-13. The Church of Jesus Christ is established by grace in Christ’s love in the glory of the new testament that excels . Christians must move forward Spiritually Holy away from all forms of non-doctrinal spiritual slavery exploitation honored and established . It is quite amazing how the so called spiritual clergies who bear tithes compliance records can overlook tithes falsehood over their shoulders and tell Christians that tithing is the best way of starting giving though they agree it is not instructed in the New Covenant.
    Levites Pastors and Priests are comfortable and friendly to brethren who live like dead sacrifice with almost free access to tithes. Levites priests were to labor to sacrifice and not tendering the flocks or do any farming ,Numbers 18:20-32 Joshua7:7.They lived in walled towns .Pastors and Priests who revive the Leviticus priesthood removed by Christ for Christians and meticulously merge it to the Loyal Priesthood of Christ do so for personal gains in mass concealed cheating in tithes allocations. The old covenant had amassed personal sought atonement for sins through animals sacrifices but the new covenant has atonement for sins in Christ’s blood. Leviticus priesthood under law remained hostile to the Ministry of Jesus Christ and His disciples who suffered in their hands even after Christ’s death, Mathew 27:12-17. Levite priests beat and wanted to kill all disciples of Christ whom they told not to preach in His name. Acts 5:17-42. Today Levite clergy tell Christian that their salvation by grace is not complete without paying them tithes which is a lie. 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 Acts;5:17-42. What pastors are not telling the Church (the bride/sons/ ambassadors /advocate, royal priests, and ministers of the new covenant in the Word/children and servants made friends by His Holy calling) is the reason Jesus 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 in Holiness preached and taught which is not in contest in numerical strength for acceptance. It quite clear from the Bible that there is no perfection and justification under works of the law. Galatians 2:16- 21, Galatians 3:8-13,Galatians 4;4-5,Galatians 5:1,18. FOR CHRISTIANS GOD HAS NO PLEASURE FOR SACRIFICES AND OFFERINGS AND BURNT OFFERINGS AND OFFERINGS FOR SINS AND FOR WHICH IS OFFERED UNDER THE LAW. HEBREW 10: 8-9 . THIS SCRIPTURE THEY WOULD WISH IT NEVER EXISTED. Can those who advocate for tithes honestly deny openly that there were sacrifices and offerings under law not acceptable to God for Christians? Tithes advocates call Christians passionately to tithe an illustration of spiritual disconnect to bridge. WHY WOULD THE CLERGY NOT TELL CHRISTIANS TO SACRIFICE FOR THEIR SINS BUT TITHE? Selective preaching and teaching on tithes falsehood cover up still remains. Tithes falsehood taught has remained guarded and guided in shrewd cover up of honored fortune justification hidden in tithes falsehood teaching proliferation by professional Christians.. Christians must know the truth to be free and move from being trapped in great justified doctrinal falsehood taught ,Ephesians4:11-14. In law men in old covenant remained the instructors and enforcers of the law. In new covenant the Holy Spirit remains our wonderful teacher and counselor in grace. For sure those who are in bondage of the law have men appreciation at hand but those lead by the Holy Spirit in Liberty within the yoke of Christ in grace have the acceptance of God. Christians should not be held spiritually hostage by unifying falsehoods taught in concealed falsehood out of labor. This would be spiritual blindness and slavery for many Christians hard for some to overcome. Apostles did not teach and preach the Gospel Of Jesus Christ through deceptive greediness but by sound doctrines, 2Peter:1-3. Christians taught for doctrines the commandments of men replace Jesus Christ for men who become their gods (idol worship based on men). They admire them for their earthly great achievements and they testify much of their stardom. Mathew 15: 5-9. There is the church of men where men teach for doctrines commandments of men and Church of Jesus Christ which cannot be swallowed by institutionalized organized falsehood and greed concealed in martyrdom of false knowledge which is not in the True Word of God. Even those workers of iniquity with miracles shall not cheat and defeat the church of Christ since He holds the Church in His holy hands in due time. Matthew15:8-9. The gates of hell shall not prevail over the Church of Jesus Christ. Mathew16:18. The Church of Christ cannot live by glorious commandments instituted by men standards. Christians must break free and be clean from men commandments enslavement. Christians’ true love and care will then freely flourish. Christians should not feel comfortable for being appreciated for accepting and supporting goals of concealed falsehood taught through feigned words in covetousness to make merchandise of us,2 Peter2:1-3. Falsehood clarified and justified in concealed covetousness is hard for many Christians to overcome. Many Christians plunged globally into tithe doctrinal falsehood and held spiritually captive by clergy that are Levites require spiritual rescue and deliverance. The Church must wrestle herself free from shrewd elite spiritual con-men who keep the Church of Jesus Christ under bondage of the law. The tithe given by Abraham in faith in God and tithes given by Israel under the law given to Moses are not in the Royal Priesthood in new Covenant of Jesus Christ put under carpet by tithes crusaders. Tithe given by Abraham to Melchisedec had no third party human usage tied to it. Tithes given under the laws had personal usage, third party human usage and were used by the Levites Priests and the Levites tribe. Windows ,orphans and strangers benefited from the tithes offerings and offerings received by the Levite priests. To quote the first tithe given out of war by Abraham the father of faith to justify tithes given by the Royal priests (Saved Christians by Grace ) is more mischievously misleading even when tied to helping the spread of the Gospel Jesus Christ a self- righteousness imposed requirement under men law for doctrine. Jesus Christ did not allocate tithes to spreading of the Gospel in the hands of Levites Priests and Pastors who are taking Christians Spiritually for a ride. Success built on falsehood should not dampen Christians quest for truth and justice in holiness without deceit. For many to hear the truth that tithe is not a Christian doctrine in the ROYAL PRIESTHOOD OF JESUS CHRIST, it is like venom to them. The only option left for them is to rush to the final line of defense and hid under falsehood by using well endorsed and educated elite Christians to teach humbly tithes falsehood escalation with well loaded professional cover up backing. Let the clergy deny openly falsehood on tithes taught and not use third parties blinded by the veil in reading the old testament that was removed by Jesus Christ for a cover up, 2Corinthians 3:1-18. Truth is easily dismissed but never nullified. Christians should not embrace scheduled resourceful falsehood taught in honor. Christian Churches must remain Sanctuaries of true love in grace instituted by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God calls us to the holy mountain of reasoning in liberty of faith in Christ Jesus, Isaiah 1:18-20, Galatians5:1, 18. The implication of self-imprisonment by Christians in men’s law for doctrines is spiritually devastating. The glory achieved is the glory of men. Faith without work is dead but work in the Holy Faith in Christ Jesus is not bound by the law. We are not men’s servants, 1Corithians 6:20, 1 Corinthians 7:21-24, 1peter18:21. We are redeemed with a price the blood of Jesus Christ to establish the law fulfilled by Him through the righteousness of the law of faith in Christ Jesus being justified freely from sins in His blood by Grace to liberty from the law,Roman3:1-31,Galatians2:16-21, James 2:17-26.
    They are amazed and bitter for we stand for Christ without seeking their favor or consultation on tithes issues without joining the sweeping wave in teaching tithes falsehood benefits acclaimed. The way some have reacted vilely to those who are opposed to tithes as a doctrinal falsehoods for Christians shows well from the comfort of their hearts that they are deeply dismayed and battered by the truth and have realized they are known on cheating on tithes fortunes acclaimed. It befit us well to be called Christians of low estate with little minds rattling for we have not been soothed smoothly cool to support tithes falsehood taught in order for us to fit perfectly in the will of Jesus Christ with no regrets. We are satisfied with what God has provided us without gains of falsehood. We do not clamor for glamorous wealth of falsehood taught. They have stood as heroes in championing tithing as a way getting blessings for Christians from God which we have totally disagreed with them which they took as affront to their spiritual dignity clout. They have degraded the Royal Priesthood of Christ and nullified grace and love of Christ to themselves. We are aware there are spiritual babies on milk and feeble who are tossed to and fro by every kind of doctrines who have not come to the full knowledge of truth. It will be unjust to us if do not take spiritual care of them and love them in Christ’s love, Hebrew5: 13-14. Those asking for revelation on tithes are asking for undeserved free room of manipulation to lie. Their theoretical assumption on tithes as the only easy way of meeting Church needs requirements through tithes justified falsehood taught to Christians saved by grace deserve spiritual analyses with no regrets. Blessing and curses dealt with in tithes in old covenant are clear to those who seek truth in clear knowledge of wisdom. The same is theoretically assumed and taught on Abel offering being accepted because he offered animal sacrifice and burnt fats as sweat savor to God. Cain offering was not accepted just because were seeds and fruits. Abel chose the best and considered the even age of his sacrifice offered to God. No special sacrificial preparation on Cain offering was dedicated to God. Cain did not pay deserved attention on what he offered to sacrifice to God. God told him if he did well his offering would be accepted. God did not tell Cain to replace his offering with animal sacrifice. He was to do well to his offering for his acceptance and offering. Genesis 4:1–7. Cain offering had no respect for God and God had no regards for it. CEREALS AND FRUITS WERE NOT REMOVED FROM BEING OFFERED IN THE OLD COVENANT.
    THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE MANY UNSUSPECTING BELIEVERS NOT KNOWING WHAT THEIR ARE TAUGHT MANY TIMES HAD BEEN DISCUSSED IN COUNCILS OF MEN FOR UNIFORMITY AND NOT WITH THE HOLLY SPIRIT. IF TITHES WERE TO BE APPLICABLE AND JUSTIFIABLE IN THE NEW COVENANT ,ALL TITHES SHOULD BE SHARED EQUALLY AMONG ALL BRETHREN SINCE WE ARE THE ROYAL PRIESTS MINISTERING THE NEW COVENANT. The tithe burden is not for Christians . 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 BENEFITS AND BLESSINGS IN A SOBER SPIRITUAL REALITY FACE OUT. Tithes teaching is unexpected real falsehood investment from those held dearly in trust by many Christians who regard them us spiritual leaders. The situation becomes more murky and tricky when church elders are accomplished in the classic falsehood which puts the church into mental slavery. 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 being the bride of Christ / the body of Christ) who are ministers of the new covenant commissioned to preach to the world. Irrelevant testimonies are given of blessed Christians even who gave beyond 70% and remained richly blessed to encourage giving beyond 10% for more blessings. Having given 70% and being left with 30% translates to millions of dollars left for their personal use. The same 70% if applied by Christians of minimal income will leave them in the cold without basics needs requirements being meet. They have encouraged Christians even to give beyond the law requirement to appear more spiritual. This is bound to impoverish Christians who will appear to have enmity with God in their old age. When the Government taxation is at 30% and the pastors at 10% without being end of requirement to give, almost 50% income is gone from the Christians who are offered weekly prayers for prosperity and blessings. How committed will these Christians be us Royal Priests to the great commission at grass root levels? Tithing is more emphasized to salaries without shame. Some have tragically wished Christians not to be employed who do not tithe to them. It would be sheer folly for Christians to become submissive hopeful prisoners under falsehood taught by those blinded by veil in bondage under law in the old covenant, Galatians 31-13, Galatians 5:1. Christians cannot buy salvation from the hands of the clergy under yard stick of salvation justification in tithes set by the clergy.
    It is quite easy to justify tithes falsehood based on easily acquired wealth which meet the church needs which operates under Leviticus Priesthood. 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 ministers of the new covenant 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 high professional intellectual falsehood commercialization cover up in tithes teaching by learned elites Christians brethren which is a disservice to the (church) body of Christ. But Christians have been warned not to be fools since for some preaching and teaching falsehood is a smart act energetically engaged and Christians are openly conned .Ephesians 5:15-16. Tithing under law impoverishes 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 glory of Christ love intended for the body of Christ. It quite clear from the Bible that there is no perfection and justification under works of the law. Galatians 2:16- 21, Galatians 3:8-13,Galatians 4;4-5, Galatians 5:1,18. Hebrew 10;8-9. Jesus Christ and his twelve disciples did not ask for tithes but only comments were made on tithes under the law. As early church had needs equally relevant to their time and did not ask for tithes, we too have needs relevant to our time which require sacrificial offerings to solve problems but no through tithes offerings under the law with a curse. Saved Christians ( The Body of Christ /Church/ Royal Priests) are able ministers of the new testament of the spirit and not of the law which is not sorely the burden of the clergy as some would like us to believe in their theoretical tithes justification support for the clergy and meeting Church needs requirements, 2Corithians 3:6 .
    A fountain cannot produce sweet and bitter water the same time. James 3:8-18. A new piece of cloth does not patch an old cloth nor do men put new wine in old bottles. Matthew 9:16-17. And with the priesthood changed there was need of changing the law governing it. Our royal priesthood in Christ Jesus is not after law of carnal commandment but after power of endless life Hebrews 7:7-26 .We Christian are saved by GRACE IN CHRIST LOVE(Spiritual Law) for we cannot be subjected to carnal law of sin and death crucified and done away by Christ on cross of Calvary. We are subjected to spiritual law of life in New Covenant 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 priests were 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 coordinate pastors only to work for Christ for a living. Apostles of Christ worked with their own 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 Christ so us not to be deceived Ephesians4:11-19. Who set aside and allocated poverty and tithes to the pastors in preaching the Gospel of Christ since those who preach the Gospel (Christians/Royal priests) 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 willingly in Christ love but not in law. We are saved by Grace in Christ’s love and our sharing should be in love. We saved Christians 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 for they vouched for tithes not for the benefit of the body of Christ? This has brought a flood gate of preaching entrepreneurship boom diligently anchored by many on salvation under yardstick of tithes obligation. Some have spoken from the pulpit of brethren who don’t allow them eat tithes from their labor. Do they preach and teach for souls to be saved or for economic gains in tithes eating? Are they in LEVITICUS PRIESTHOOD or in THE ROYAL PRIESTHOOD OF JESUS CHRIST? A GENUINE ANSWER IS REQUIRED FOR NON DOUBLE STANDARD DOCTRINAL FAITH. For Christians it should be precepts upon precepts without contradictions under Royal Priesthood of Christ Jesus.
    Should the pastors ministry overshadow other ministries? All ministries should work as one body in the body of Christ. Foot soldiers who support falsehood on tithes preaching and teaching are calling Christians who do not support tithing to ask for forgiveness in face saving cover up. They have stood as heroes of faith in tithes teachings falsehood. Christians bear no apology to no one for preaching and teaching the truth . Only those who preach and teach falsehoods are hurt by the truth. Christians should not be coaxed by great promises and deadly threats hedged in none doctrinal falsehoods promises taught in guarded personal ego gains. With God, the means justify the end in Jesus Christ. Christians should not be hoodwinked by GROANING DELIVERY OF FALSEHOOD AND THE GLORY associated with the fruits of falsehood benefits . As we speak on the falsehood on the doctrine of tithing for Christians, we have not closed our eyes to the needs of the Church nor have buried our heads in the sand devoid of understanding of our emotions to face the truth. We stand for truth aware of forces against the truth within the Church and outside the Church. We have been asked to ask for forgiveness for not supporting tithing without being told from whom to apply for forgiveness. We do not pursue and preserve justified falsehoods which meet easily the needs of the Church for with God, the means justify the end in Christ. We are told we point an accusing finger to the clergy on issues concerning tithes falsehoods. We are part of the body of Christ and no part of the body accuses other parts. All body parts coordinate in functions and take care of one another when giving our body parts that are not comely more honor .We only pin point doctrinal falsehood taught by clergy thus taking care of the body of Christ spiritually in love. We do not waver in our minds and hearts in our stand on tithes issues. If one is stuck in sticky clay of falsehood, us a Christian one has to owner up and warm up to the truth and shape up to be free in did. We are fully aware of glorious unstable spiritual empires built on quick sand by men through falsehood under threat from the truth. If the empires fall apart there is no loss for Christians to worry about for apology. We are warned of danger of teaching and preaching the truth by exposing ourselves to well organized affluent churches of able humble men. We stand for Christ in life and death without shame in removing the dark cloud of falsehood taught on tithes. Well organized fruitful falsehoods from those in authority do not translate to truth and righteousness, 2 Corinthians11:13-14.
    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 . Roman 8:1-17,Galatians4:4- 5. We saved Christians are not under law but under grace Roman6:13-14.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. In tithes teaching the clergy makes spot of the needs for the better faultless New Covenant in obtained excellent ministry established upon better promises which has specific intended goals in Love by Grace in Jesus Christ. Hebrew 8:6-8. Christians are Spiritually born in the new Covenant by Grace in Love in Christ Jesus.
    The body of CHRIST has been subjected to doctrinal mess by Levite priests and Levite pastors. TITHE IS A PURE CLASSIC 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 and no Levite priest was chosen as His Apostle . 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 early formative stage of Christian Ministry. 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 Divine rights( after the order of Melchisedec ) in the new Covenant. Perfection is in grace and not in law. Hebrew7: 7-26, Hebrew8:6-13 Hebrew9:1-27 Hebrew10:1-23. Leviticus Priesthood is impressive to many since it involves waiting at the sanctuary for provision and serving only at the altar of sacrifice. The order of Melchisedec was in Melchisedec Himself and existed before any tithe was offered. It is erroneously taught that tithes taught in the Old Covenant and comments made on tithes in the New Covenant in reference to Old Covenant sum up to uphold to tithe for Christians in order of Melchisedec which some teachings made suggest the order of Melchisedec in modeled on tithes. Now where is indicated in the Holly Bible that Abraham redeemed his first born sons Ishmael and Isaac when they were born since he operated in faith in God and not under the law. The law is not of faith. We are saved by grace from all sins of iniquities.
    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 did not say Amen to satan for quoting scripture. 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 of Christian doctrinal knowledge teachings among Christians. Tithing contradict the doctrine of salvation by GRACE and deprive the Christians in Loyal Priesthood in Christ Jesus the individual empowerment to do the Great Commission. When we are loyal Priests and the bride Of Christ 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 demand 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 Jesus Christ. We saved Christians are the Loyal Priests AND Ambassadors of Jesus Christ.2 Peter 2:1-9, 2 Corinthians5:14-20. The preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not entirely sorely in the hands of clergy. It is in the hands of the (Church in Loyal Priesthood) believers composing the body of Jesus Christ.
    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 on tithing for Christians saved by grace. On moving from one church to another or by taking a flight from one continent to another on falsehood mission, lies taught on tithes by them cannot be justified by the sacrificial 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 will truth prevails’. 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, Acts;5:17-42. 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 daughters is unto multiplied men who were 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. God said His spirit shall not always strive with man and He saw the wickedness of man was great. This time there is no wickedness associated with angles, Genesis6:1—7.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. Christians are saved by grace in Christ’s love and our judgment must remain under Spiritual law of love in Grace that leads to redemption and under perfect law of liberty to do righteousness in Christ love, James 1:20-25, James2:10-26. Thus to him that knows to do good in liberty and does not do it is sin to him, James 4:15 Bro James taught us to avoid judgment under carnal law that brings condemnation without redemption. Those who live under law shall face judgment without mercy for no man shall be justified by the works of the law,Galatians2:16-21 . 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 well active coordinated principals. Christians are encouraged to solve cases in judgment among themselves. 1Corinthians 6:1-7,The Bible encourages 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. We are encouraged to be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment, I Corinthians 1:10. 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 deliver 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 to sin in Christ Jesus. We cannot stop delivering Heavenly Judgments to buy ourselves freedom from being judged. Without sense of judgmental evaluation of good, evil or bad would never exist for humanity and humanity would enter into a void valueless state in life. Even when others say do not judge others , that statement bear judgment in itself. Our appreciation is in judgment. 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. 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 am happily blessed to interact with you on spiritual teachings. Hope we shall search more scriptures for our beneficial spiritual growth . Yearning to receive your input on the topic .God bless you. The message is freely given purely to the body of JESUS CHRIST worldwide.
