2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.” What the verse is saying is if we study the word for ourselves, we will be able to persistently reject profane and vain babblings that most pastors get caught up teaching the people. There are many victims out there who got trapped in the tithing scam. I was one of the victims until last year when my eyes were opened. As bad as I wanted to get upset with these pastors who allegedly manipulate the word of Yahuah to get my money I couldn’t. You know why because I didn’t take heed to the word. Our Messiah warned us several times about these false prophets. Matthew 5:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Unfortunately, we are too lazy to read the word and rather listen to someone telling us lies. They call it a feel-good message, right? That same feel-good message robbing you blind of eternal life.
So, for those of you who don’t care about giving 10% of your hard earn money to your pastor because he or she told you that you would go to heaven if you enrich him or she takes the blue pill and ends this blog. However, those of you who are tired of being scammed or robbed of your 10% hard earn money take the red pill, stay in Wonderland with me and let see how deep the rabbit hole goes. Although, you can’t blame anyone else but yourself. Here we go! The question is where do pastors get the message that we must give our 10% tithing increase to the church? Is it scriptural that we should give 10% of our income, absolutely not? Their tithing message is baseless, and it’s not even in the Bible that you should give 10% of your money to the pastor. Why do they create this lie is simply because of greed. The church has become a place of business, and it has nothing to do with preaching the word of God. If it were so, they would never bring pagan worship to the church and teach man-made doctrine.
I kid you not, I used to attend a church many years ago, and the pastor dared to tell us that if we miss tithing from one paycheck, we must add interest to it when paying it back. I have seen people go and open church, so they don’t have to work just to collect tithing. It is a disgrace to see how greedy people have gotten to a point to use the word of God to get money from people. I think many of these pastors forget Romans 14:12 “So then every one of us shall give an account of himself to our Father God.” The love of money and power that’s what dragging these people to sin against our Father God. I don’t want any of you to be confused because the Bible does talk about Tithing but not the type of tithing you are hearing many pastors preaching in church. People, here this tithing has nothing to do with money but food. And get this, the tithing is for you not to give to your pastor. The only thing the Bible requires of you giving is Alms or offering, and it’s whatever you can give. Wake up! Many of you stop paying your bills, feeding your children, giving all your saving to someone lying to you, and taking you straight to hell.
Here is the proof Leviticus 27:30-34 you must read it but I’m focusing on verse 32- “And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto God.” Some of the pastors have gotten clever and said that back in the days they didn’t have money. Or many of us don’t have flocks or are farmers therefore we work, and it’s the money we work for we have to bring to the house of God. I’m not joking when I said this because that was the explanation of a pastor when they questioned him about tithing. Most pastors never read all the verses about tithing. In my many years of going to church Malachi 3: 8 “Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.” This is one of the famous verses pastors use to make you feel bad so you can pay your tithe. However, they never go through the whole chapter because it tells you why he said we had robbed Him in tithing and offerings.
Deuteronomy 4: 2 “You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of God your Father which I command you.” Do pastors who are telling people to bring 10% of their money to the church take away from the highest commandments, yes. Do you still believe that tithing has to do with money let’s see what Deuteronomy 14:22-29 “Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year? And thou shalt eat before God your Father, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear God your Father always.” Please, tell me where in this verse it says to give your tithe to your pastors. Oh, it gets better, in verses 24-26 it says that, if the place the highest chose is too far to carry your tithing; you shall turn it into money and bind up the money in thine hand, and go to the place God chooses: “and thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusted after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatever thy soul desired: and thou shalt eat there before God your Father, and thou shalt rejoice thou, and thine household.”
Again, do these verses say anything about bringing your 10% to the church so the pastor could dance over it and take it to his bank account? Now, what the highest said in verse 28-29 is at the end of the three years you shall bring your increase the same year and it was still talking about food not money food to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow within your gates shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied. Read it for yourself. So, where do pastors get their tithing message from? Oh, it’s in the New Testament as well let see what it says in Matthew 23:23 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith:” It’s all food nothing to do with money. Here are some other references: Nehemiah 10:36-39; Malachi 3:8-10; Malachi 1:12-14; Like I always encourage you to do your research and study.
Keep in mind that the Levites have no inheritance. God is their inheritance and he gave them 10% for their services forever. Numbers 18:21-26 “And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.22 Neither must the children of Israel henceforth come nigh the tabernacle of the congregation, lest they bear sin, and die.23 But the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity: it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel they have no inheritance.24 But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as a heave offering unto the Lord, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. 25 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 26 Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up a heave offering of it for the Lord, even a tenth part of the tithe.”
2 Chronicles 31:4-5 “He ordered the people living in Jerusalem to give the portion due to the priests and Levites so they could devote themselves to the Law of the God. As soon as the order went out, the Israelites generously gave the firstfruits of their grain, new wine, olive oil and honey, and all that the fields produced. They brought a great amount, a tithe of everything.”
1 Timothy 6:3-12 but it says in verse 3- “If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of Yahusha Hamasiach (They call Jesus), and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; he is proud, knowing nothing.” Look, I’m sharing the word with you, but it’s up to you if you want to stay in the Matrix and go to hell with them. You can do two things accept the truth for what it is or keep living the lie you’ve been told. With that note, I will say until next time.
