We going to let the Holy Spirit of God guide us through His words so that we could know the truth, and the truth is going to set us free. Let us start from the beginning when Abraham gave melchizedek a tenth part from his gain. Ge. 14: 16-24. Now let’s proceed to Jacob and his twelve sons, which is called the twelve tribes of Israel. God has chosen the Levites to work as priests for the children of Israel in the tabernacle, that they should not received any inheritance, but the land and the animals was to be divided among the other eleven brothers. God commended them to give 10% of they gain from they animals and they fruits and vegetables to the Levites, so they may perform God work in the tabernacle. Nun. 18: 21-24.
Let us see what Jesus had to say about tithing in Mt. 23: 23-24. I want you to keep in mind that Jesus was born under the law, yes He pays his tithes and keep the Sabbath till He say on the cross it is FINISHED, that mean He fulfill the requirements of the law that was against us, Col. 2: 14, with that been said, Jesus call the priest in His days hypocrites because they were more interested of getting 10% of mint and anise and cummin, nothing said about money.
Now we know the so called born again prosperity teachers, condemn the Adventist for holding the Sabbath of the old covenant, but they using Malachi. 3: 8-10. Which is also part of the old covenant, they favorite saying is that you robbing God if you don’t pay your tithes, this could cause you to go to hell because it’s in the Abrahamic covenant. Jesus said in Jh. 8: 53-58. That He was greater than Abraham and all the prophets, because He told them before Abraham I AM. As children of the New Covenant, been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord who gave 💯% of Himself to give us life, if you think that Jesus will except 10% from you, I will tell you my friend you been deceived.
Satan biggest lie is to cause you to give God 10% and rob God of 90%, and go to the lake of fire with him. Re. 20: 10-15. Apostle Paul said in Galatians 2: 20. I am crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. In Philippians. 3: 6-10. Apostle Paul counts all things as loss to win Christ. In Luke. 21: 1-4. Jesus spoke of a widow that gave her last, and He said she gave more than all the people. Now the rich young man in Mark. 10: 17-31. He did not make it in the kingdom because he did not give his all when Jesus ask him to do so, but in verse 28 Peter confess that they all left all to fallow Jesus.
In Luke. 14: 26-27. Jesus said we must let go of everything even our own life if we want to be His disciple. Let us go after the resurrection at Pentecost in Acts 2: 1-47. After the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire great power fell on them, this is the beginning of the foundation of the Church by the Holy Spirit, now let us observe how the Holy Spirit wants us in the body of Christ to give, three thousand souls was added to the body of Christ, the Holy Spirit cause them to sell all they position and bring them together and share with one another so that no one was in need.
I will give you a illustration, when you eat a Apple all the parts of your body benefits from the nutrition, the same it should be with the body of Christ, the Holy Spirit repeated that again in Acts 4: 1-37. He caused the five thousand that believed to give 💯% of all that they have, and separation was made so that all was alike, God was so happy that they were of one heart one soul one mind, no one thought anything was his, God even shock the place were they assembled together, as a sign of His happiness.
But in Acts 5: 1-11 We see Ananias and his wife Sapphira hold back part of the money they were suppose give, from what they sold, but Peter confronted Ananias first and ask him why? He aloud Satan to filled his heart to lie to God, people that are giving 10% should watch what the Holy Spirit did to Ananias, He kill him on the spot, and his wife also conspired and lie to God and suddenly she dropped dead.
Now I have a simple question, if a billionaire show up at your church and ask if anyone will share all they have with me, I will share all I have with them? How many of you will ignore him, or give him just 10%? Well the creator of heaven and earth send me to tell you He wants to enter a new covenant with you. Yes you! If you give Him 💯% He will give you 💯% do you believe that?
Now let me explain how God will operate this contract, everything you have will be at the disposal of the Holy Spirit of God, only He could tell you what to do with all your position, and that you should trust no men, and in return He promised to give you whatsoever you need if you seek His kingdom first and live righteously before Him. Mt. 6: 24-34. In case you don’t want to believe me, Believe in the word of God. May the Holy Spirit favor you to sign this contract with Jesus, as a reminder my friend He die for you to have life, and He will not uphold anything that is good from you. But in case you don’t get it, you came to this world with nothing and it is certain you living with nothing, it’s all His anyway. Col. 1: 15-16. May the Lord richly bless you in Jesus Almighty name. Amen.
