TITHE is NOT money Pt 1
TITHES: THE TRUTH REVEALED! The tithe was not money. It was crops and animals. Israelites did have money but God did not command Israel to tithe money because it was not holy unto him. Mal. 3 is not is addressing us but it is addressing the addressing the Levitical Priest who were given a different command on their tithes and offering which is found in the book of Numbers. The nation of Israel was discourage due to the priest lack of obedience and integrity to keep the law and offer up their own tithe and offering, in which they had to only give the best of what they received from the children of Israel. There's a lot of confusion on this matter but the scriptures clearly makes it plain. We must study to show ourselves approved daily in order to make sure we are not teaching a false doctrine that God will hold us accountable for and once we learn the truth we must repent and teach the truth not a false tradition. God is faithful to forgive us is we did believe and teach the lie of tithing. Read Galations, Read Romans, Read Colosians, Read Ephesians! And do not forget to read the book of Hebrew! These books will help us to understand what Christ did for us on the cross. We are to give cheerfully, not out of obligation routine or compulsion which is pretty much the definition of modern tithing being taught in churches all over this world. People are suffering, children are suffering, the elderly and disable are suffering giving there last dime while the church overlooks the fact that they should be using most of their funds to feed their congregations and cloth them. Faith without works is dead. Pastors are not to heap up riches and cover it by calling it ministry. This is not of God and they know it is all a scheme! Just know you are not cursed with a curse because you are not able to tithe or choose not to tithe. Per Gods laws under Moses, the way we tithe now is not even correct. First you have to take it to Jerusalem, then to the temple, and then eat it with all the people and your household and not to forget the priest. In the 3rd year you are to keep it in your own town and not take it to Jerusalem. The temple is destroyed, I don't know any Levites, plus we are now the Royal priesthood and in the book of Hebrew, we are told that the priest can not eat from the alter anymore. It's very clear. God bless and be a berean, study daily and then many will be saved!
