“TITHE AND OFFERING” A beloved man of God asked me this very important questions which I believed to be in the mind of some Christians aswell too! “Why did Jesus and the apostles not teach on this vital subject…Tithing & Offerings?” Did they really not taught on these vital subjects? Yes, I believed they did at a very deeper, higher, different and matured level. I titled their teachings on tithe & offerings as “THE PRINCIPLE & ACTS OF GIVING WILLINGLY & OBTAINING GOD’S FAVOUR” 1) Jesus corrected some leaders in New Testament (Matthew 23:23) “Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay TITHE of mint and anise and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith (note please) THESE YOU OUGHT TO HAVE DONE, WITHOUT LEAVING THE OTHERS UNDONE!” “Which simply means…Pay your tithes & offerings BUT forget not the care of the needy” 2) See These References: Matthew 19: 16-30 + 2 Corinthians 9: 5-15 + Acts 20:32-35 + 1Corinthians 13:1-4 +1 Timothy 6:17-19 + 1 Timothy 3:16-17. NOTE: ~Tithing & Offerings were established by God for the upkeep of His Temple and His Ministers, the strangers, the needy, the poor, the widow, and the orphans. Deuteronomy 26:11-14, Numbers 18, Leviticus 27: 30-31 The unfortunate things I’ve noticed is that, some Theologian’s have gone out of their way to ‘proved’ that paying tithe is subject to the Old Testament only. Well…I believed that your understanding of the principle of the Kingdom Triumphant as Christ taught it and your level of relationship to God will always dictates and determine your actions in all things! ******NOBODY CAN OUTGIVE GOD IN ANYTHING******* ~No one can love without giving either it’s called TITHE, OFFERINGS etc…It is still GIVING! But, anyone can give out of duty…without loving. ~A Gentile man in Acts 10: 1-48 gave and trust so much in God that Heaven recognised him and God rewarded him with Salvation! PS: His families, friends & relatives got SAVED too on his account! ~Tabitha, (Dorcas) a Christian woman in Acts 9: 36-43 also honoured God through her giving’s, offerings, dedications, and commitments so much so that, death lost its grip over her life! The questions are >When would we start giving without grumbling and analysing God COMMANDS? >Why do we find it hard to give to the ONE we proclaim to love? Is it out of greed, selfishness or is it just the love of mammon that make us grumble? You cannot serve God and mammon (mammon means MONEY) Matthew 6:23-25 at the same time! I pray, in your quest to be socially and intellectually correct, BECAREFUL! Release to God what belongs to Him. The quality of your worship will speak volumes here on earth, in heaven and in generations to come if Jesus tarries. I pray that you’ll have excellent existence by the virtue of your obedience in all things to God Almighty. Amen. I rest my case with deep SENCE OF PRAYER THAT GOD HELP US ALL.
