After my last posting on “Giving and Tithing”, some of you showed your love and faith by your works according to James 2:14-18. And I greatly appreciate your love and faithfulness. However, some did not agree with the posting and I was given mainly two arguments by readers. One being that tithing is no longer for today. Another is that we are all under grace and there is no curse for those that believe in Jesus even if we do not tithe.
But I don’t fault these dear saints for their beliefs. We all have been lied to so much by the enemy in the churches that many are deceived and misinformed. One of the biggest lies of the religious churches today is that anyone who believes in Jesus is redeemed from the curse. This is far from the truth and is creating multitudes of hell-bound sinners. The sinful nature of man is under a curse and how could anyone live according to their sinful flesh and claim that they are redeemed from the curse simply by having a belief in Jesus? Can you all not see the fallacy in this type of thinking? Do we not know that God’s wrath is against ALL unrighteousness according to Romans 1:18? One can believe in Jesus all they want, but will still face God’s judgment if they are disobedient.
But in any respect, this morning I was seeking the Lord about the responses I was getting from other saints on the subject of giving and tithing. I was seeking His heart on the matter and the misconceptions of His people.
He told me that it is His desire is for His people to love Him with all their heart, soul and mind, and our neighbors as ourselves. For if we did, then all that we have is His and we would all give cheerfully and there would be no need for tithing. If we could be led by the Spirit, then we are not under the law of tithing because we are led by the Spirit in our giving and we do it cheerfully. (Gal. 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.) But because of the disobedience of His people, He must command tithing for the sake of building His house (His true Church). It is time to build His true church and He is VERY serious about this. It is time for those that will not lay down their lives and be joined in this to be separated from those of us that will.
I do understand that many have been wounded by the apostate church that in their greed, manipulate people into tithing. But we must be careful to not throw away the baby with the bath water. We are to come out of the apostate churches and no longer give to those that manipulate and fleece the sheep for their own greed for money. But on the other hand, we do not neglect obedience in giving…
Hear what the Father has to say to His body about this matter of tithing so that His house may be built.
Word from the Father:
Oh My children, think not that you can rob God and get away with it. Oh, but you all ask, how are we robbing God? I tell you, My children, when My house, the true house of the Lord, goes on without being built and yet you all continue in building your own kingdoms, is this not robbing God?
Oh, but many of you say that you’re now under grace and no longer under the law and curse simply because you believe in My Son’s name. Well you may believe in His name but you do not believe Him. For if you truly believed My Son, you would hear His voice and follow Him as My word commands you to. But many of you do not listen to My Son’s voice and therefore do not follow Him. Many of you have chosen to follow man’s doctrines instead and claim that that is following My Son. Fools, do you really think that this shall redeem you from the curse that I have sent upon man and the earth? ONLY those led of My Spirit are redeemed from the curse. For is it not true that there is no law against My Spirit? But all that are under the law are still under a curse. Therefore, if you hear My Son’s voice by My Spirit and follow Him, then and ONLY then are you no longer under the law and consequently, no longer under the curse.
My dear little children listen to your Heavenly Father this day. I do not desire that any of you be under a curse. And for this reason I have made a way for you all through the shed blood of My son to be set free from the curse. But My children, I tell you now that many of you have been lied to by the false teachers and prophets. You are NOT redeemed from the curse simply by believing on My Son’s name. Do not even the devil and his angels believe and tremble at My Son’s name? And yet I tell you that they are not redeemed from their curse. Do you not think that even they would desire to be restored to their former glory? But I tell you a mystery. The devil and his angels CANNOT be redeemed from their curse for I have not made a way for those in rebellion to Me to be redeemed. So, My little ones. Do not think that you can do your own thing and be redeemed from the curse simply by believing in My Son’s name. Redemption from the curse is ONLY for those that are obedient to My Son’s voice and therefore led by My Spirit.
But do not take to heart that you are doomed if you have not yet learned to hear My Son’s voice. Have I not considered even the babes in Christ that desire to be obedient? For I tell you, My little ones, those that cannot yet discern My Son’s voice for themselves, but desire My righteousness; for them I have given My laws as their schoolmaster that they may be led unto all truth and eventual redemption from the curse by learning to be led by My Spirit in all things.
But I tell you now, the false shepherds have lied to My children. Many claim that everyone is under grace and no longer under the law of My word. Fools, I tell you. Anyone who has believed such lies is a fool and has not studied My word for themselves. For did I not say in My word that I have not done away with the law? (Matt. 19:16-21, Rom 2:8-18, 3:31) Then why do many of you go about doing your own thing and claim that you are under grace and no longer under law? Again, I say FOOLS. Read My word. Did I not strike down Ananias and Sapphira? And yet the early church spoken of in My word was under GREAT grace. (Acts 4:33)
Oh, My little children, I do not come to you all this day to declare that you are under a curse. But I come to you declaring the truth of My word so that you all may be set free from the curse.
Oh, My little ones, many of My children stumble over the teaching of tithing. My children, hear Me well this day. Do I not provide for you all your substance? Then why would you accept from My hands and not give back that My house may be built? Oh, but many of you say that My houses are built everywhere. Oh, My little ones. Do not think that your churches are what I consider to be My house. For My house shall be built without the hands of man. And I have not called those false pastors and prophets that build big buildings and kingdoms unto themselves and accumulate wealth by fleecing My sheep.
My little children, My house is My children building My kingdom. And yes, it does take of your finances to do this. Don’t you think that My true servants of My word have to pay for their livelihoods? And don’t you think that they have to pay if I send them out somewhere? Or do you think that the airports, hotels and restaurants shall give freely to them simply because I have sent them to do My work? Oh My little children, I am commissioning My true warriors to do My work in this world that many of you know not of. And as long as you all are still in this world, My work in this world will cost money for My servants.
Oh, but I can already hear many of your hearts crying out, “Well if they’re truly servants of God, then God will provide for them”. And yes, in this saying you are right. But just HOW, My little ones, do you think that I shall provide for them? Do you think that I have blessed your finances so that you may store up for yourselves as the false prophets and teachers do? For did I not show you in My word that My church shall have all things in common? (Acts 4:32) Then I ask you, where is My house? Where is the storehouse that My people may have all things in common?
Oh, My little ones, you have all been lied to by the false prophets and teachers. And for this reason, many of you do not understand My ways. But I tell you all now, come out! Come out from among them. Come out of that harlot church system of man and build My church, which is My people. I have called you all unto Myself. But many of you have instead preferred the religious systems of man.
Oh, My little ones, time is short and soon you shall see My wrath that I shall pour out upon that religious harlot. But not before she has been used by the beast to bring in all those that will follow her defiling ways. And she shall persecute My true church. And at that time, you shall truly know those who are of My church and those who are of that harlot church of man.
My children, I come to you this day to tell you that it is time that I build My true church. Will you join with Me, My little ones? Do not take offense if I ask you of your money. For am I not the supplier of all things? And have I not supplied for each of your needs? And for those of you that I have supplied abundance to, do you not think that I have done this so that those that have much may give to those that have little?
Oh, My little children. Why is it such a hard thing for My children to tithe? Oh, but many of you have listened to the enemy in twisting My scriptures to say that tithing is not for today. Well I come to you this day, My little ones and tell you the truth. If you do not tithe from My supply to you, then you ARE under My curse. Yes, My children, again I say, if you do not tithe, you are under My curse. For I have not given to you that you may build your own houses and kingdoms while My house and kingdom lays waste. And now in this day and hour I shall begin to build My kingdom throughout the earth. And if any of you desire to be part of My kingdom, then you shall NOT hold back what is MINE, sayeth the Lord.
Oh, but I can already hear many of your hearts saying, “This man is deceived, for we are not bound by any law to tithe”. And for those of you that say this, I bid you farewell. For you shall no longer follow Me in these last days if you hold anything back. For I tell you now is the day and the hour that those that are Mine shall forge ahead. And those who have pretended and have followed Me only for My blessings, shall now begin to fall away. For now is the time that I am calling forth My great army. And those that do not lay down their lives for Me cannot and will not be part of My last day army.
So I say to you all this day, bring all your tithes into My storehouse and see if I shall not open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing upon you. And for those that say this command is no longer for today, then I bid you farewell. And see how long your finances will last in these last days. For once again, I shall strike your economy. And many, I say MANY shall cry and wail when their treasure is no more. But for those that have chosen to follow Me in building My house, I shall supply abundantly for you in this time of economic crisis. And there shall be plenty in My house in these last days. But for those of the world and outside My house, their shall be lack.
Oh, My children, have I not warned you of these last days. Many shall turn away and follow the lawless one for their security and provisions. But I tell you now, those in My house shall have plenty and shall dwell safely in the hands of the Lord. So again, I tell you My little ones. Give of your substance that I may build My house. And those that trust Me in this shall not be ashamed.
Galatians 5:18 But IF ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Nehemiah 2:17 Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach.
Haggai 1:4-6 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house (the Lord’s house) lie waste? Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD. Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house. Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit. And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands.
The above scriptures describe the same curse of not tithing in Malachi because the people did not build the house of God. These days the Lord is taking very serious the building of His house which is His body of believers.
Malachi 3:8-12 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.
