Are you paying Jesus tax?
Under the New Covenant we become like Christ and we are led by the Spirit as cheerful givers, exactly as He did it.
Jesus spoke in Matthew 23:23 to those still under the old covenant and He never said anything about money. The priests that served in the temple were provided for out of the produce of the land so they might have food to eat and that is why Jesus said “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, justice, mercy, and faith: these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone.”
Nowhere under the New Covenant are we commanded by God to pay tithes yet the harlot fleshly churches of men charges God’s people for her services.
If a preacher tells you that the blessing of Abraham will come upon you if you pay ties then he is lying to you because Abraham was already blessed by God before he ever met Melchizedeck.
Zack Poonen wrote – “Consider the matter of tithing, for example. This was a law under the old covenant. But it is never commanded by Jesus or the apostles to those under the new covenant.
Yet multitudes of covetous pastors compel their congregations to tithe compulsorily either through promises of divine reward or through threats of divine judgment. The people pay up, but without joy. It is not spontaneous giving, but grudging, reluctant giving. The pastors are happy when the offering boxes are full, but God is not. Pastors love large givers, but God loves only cheerful givers!
The new covenant principle is NOT, “Give as much as you can give”, but , “Give as much as you can give cheerfully”. God does not want any more than that. Of course you will receive in the same proportion as you give (2 Cor. 9:7; Lk. 6:38) – but that is another matter. God does not, however, desire any labour or gifts that are unwillingly given. What we do without joy is a dead work.
What God says about paying tithes.
Pieter v Oudshoring is a friend of mine. He is a precious servant of God and the Lord speaks to him through divine encounters.
13 March 2018
I was greeted this morning as follows: Do not be afraid. Let your heart no longer attack your mind. Be blessed in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. May your mind be soothed so that your heart can be calm, may you find the rest in the Son of JHWE that your soul desire.
Wisdom stood in front of me and he said: “Your teaching starts today. You have asked why the current day church is called a WHORE and not a bride. You will be instructed from the written word and you must write it down as you are instructed!”
He opened a scroll and he gave me a long quill and a block of white paper to write on. The quill was filled with a luminescent blue ink. He said; “Blue is the living Word of JHWE. It is the most sublime colour and it brings the healing power of JHWE to the church. Write down.
The WHORE takes little portions of the Word and turn it into a complete teaching.
The WHORE preaches these teachings as truth.
The WHORE accuses her congregation of lies and thievery if they do not pay as she demands.
The WHORE quotes from the Word with perfect reference, but not in the context of the full word spoken.
The WHORE places fear in the hearts of her congregation by placing a curse on them if they do not bring their money into her coffers.
Write down these scriptures. Genesis 14: 20-25
(20) And praise be to God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.” Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything. (21) The king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the people and keep the goods for yourself.” (22) But Abraham said to the king of Sodom, “With raised hand I have sworn an oath to the Lord, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth, (23) that I will accept nothing belonging to you, not even a thread or the strap of a sandal, so that you will never be able to say, ‘I made Abram rich.’ (24) I will accept nothing but what my men have eaten and the share that belongs to the men who went with me to Aner, Eshkol and Mamre. Let them have their share.”
Note the WHORE’s lie, Rock of God. She professes that Abraham paid Tithes to God and was blessed, therefore you must pay tithes in order to be blessed. But what she does not say, is that this was the covenant between Melchizedek and Abraham on the spoils of the riches found when Lot was saved from capture. She has told over the ages that Abraham made a covenant with God, that if he receives the victory in the approaching war, then he would pay a tithe of the spoils to God.
The truth in the Word which she never reveals is that Abraham was already Blessed before Melchizedek met him, therefore Abraham’s wealth was not contingent upon him paying tithes to God. The scriptures, when read in the full context reveals what really happened was that Abraham went to war to recover his relative Lot, who had been taken hostage and all Lot’s possessions were taken. In the war waged to relieve Lot from captivity, Abraham also recovered the goods of King Sodom.
The WHORE always quotes the 20th verse but fail to seek the meaning of verses 21 & 22, and never reveal the true meaning thereof to the congregation.
Again, write this down:
18 Then Melchizedek, king of Salem, brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, 19 and he blessed Abram, saying, “Blessed be Abraham by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth.
Explain the lie of the WHORE my son, tell the bride that the only way you can pay tithes according to the Abraham reference is to go to war on behalf of your brother, to recover your brother’s stolen goods from the thief who is also the next door neighbor, and then pay your brother in arms who came to your assistance a tenth of your own brother’s possessions for aiding you to retrieve it.
Note carefully son, in this account of the payment of a tenth between Abraham and Melchizedek, a tithe equated to things, possessions, assets, and food. The only way to truly remain accurate to this principal is for those who are in the congregation to give to their Melchizedek one tenth every week from possessions and riches that never belong to them in the first place.
Wisdom asked: “Do you understand son?
Abraham was neither blessed by God for paying a tithe, nor did he pay a tithe to JHWE nor was he blessed by the payment of that tenth.
It was a covenant between men on possessions that belonged to those who were rescued and nothing more.”
WRITE DOWN THIS SCRIPTURE”
Gen 28: 18 to 22 18 So early in the morning Jacob took the stone that he had put under his head and set it up for a pillar and poured oil on the top of it. 19 He called the name of that place Bethel,[a] but the name of the city was Luz at the first. 20 Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear, 21 so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God, 22 and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God’s house. And of all that you give me I will give a full tenth to you.
The WHORE professes that Jacob made a pledge to God, and like Jacob we should also pledge to Tithe. Some shepherds even go so far as to say: “Jacob pledged the Lord his life and a tenth of all possessions in tithe, therefore you should have no hesitation when asked to give a tenth of your income.”
The lie of the WHORE is this! Yes, it is true that Jacob made this pledge to God to pay one tenth of all of his possessions, but herein is the lie. She does not want you to know and realize that this pledge he made was a Conditional pledge. She only holds the payment of the tenth before the congregation. She never reveals that Jacob had the one condition placed on his vow.
Write it again and read with the clear vision of the Spirit of God.
18 So early in the morning Jacob took the stone that he had put under his head and set it up for a pillar and poured oil on the top of it. 19 He called the name of that place Bethel,[a] but the name of the city was Luz at the first. 20 Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear, 21 so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God, 22 and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God’s house. And of all that you give me I will give a full tenth to you.
“See that Jacob made a condition to his vow in verse 20. Jacob required from JHWE to act first and in pledge of the requested victory he would then pledge a tenth of all his possession. The WHORE requires from the congregation today to throw money at the feet of their shepherd.
Jacob said: “if you be with me”.
Jacob said: “if you give me”.
The Tithe in this scripture is on condition that God does something first, not the bride.
The WHORE has taught you that if you tithe first then you will receive a Blessing, but Jacob’s Pledge never promised that. Man may decide to support a congregation or a man of JHWE from the wealth that God has provided to him, and then man does so out of his free will.
It is important that you understand that you’re not required according to the “Jacob’s Pledge” to do anything first, Jacobs plan was to see the real blessing from God first before he paid tithes. The WHORE will react violently when you challenge her, and when you declare that you will support her church only after God has blessed you and render you able to do so, and not before.
Son, write down this scripture from the prophets of JHWE. The WHORE quotes this word in seclusion from the complete instruction and the complete word.
8 “Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. 9 You are cursed with a curse. For you have robbed Me, Even this whole nation. 10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this”, Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.
“The WHORE gleefully proclaims that if you don’t Tithe then you will be cursed with a curse. If you’re not paying tithes, then you are robbing God. This is the scripture the WHORE relies on the most to place the congregation under false fear of the Lord your God, of JHWE.
The WHORE never misses an opportunity to quote it.”
Note this very well my son, the whole book of Malachi is speaking to the priests before Christ and the priests after the death of Christ.
The learned in the Word, even after a very short time spent in the Word of JHWE knows and are aware that Malachi was directed at Priests, the only problem is their members remain without the full knowledge.
For it is also written that the bride of JHWE perishes because of her lack of knowledge. If you show me an ignorant congregation, then I will show you a very wealthy man, one who’s riches far exceed those of others in the same congregation and within their midst. There is always someone who emerges extremely wealthy off ignorant people, and the church is no exception to that rule.
Whenever you hear the WHORE proclaiming that you’re robbing God if you don’t pay your tithes, then you must recognize that your shepherd is using the Book of Malachi to manipulate you into Giving. Warn the congregation, the members of the bride, that the book of the prophet Malachi is not a book that can simply be started by reading from the middle, because if man is to do that, then he will get the impression that God is referring to him directly. Now hear this and expose the lies of the WHORE to all who will hear!
Tell them that the entire Book of Malachi was addressed to the Levi Priests. The priests were the only ones who were allowed to approach the alter for offering and sacrifice, which is why the content in Malachi is a direction, an instruction that proclaims the quality of the offerings brought into the temple of God. If the man or woman who reads these words are affronted by it and if they declare it to be herecy than write this down as well:
Malachi 2:1 And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. 2 If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, says the Lord of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.
Tell them to yet again ponder and meditate on the word as it is written in chapter 3:10 Bring ye all the Tithes into the storehouse that there may be meat.
Now the word of JHWE clearly prohibits the priests of Levi to own land, or possessions of any kind and prohibits them to farm or cultivate their own food, as the God of Hosts would supply all their needs.
Recall the Word as it was given to Israel, that they should bring offerings into the house of JHWE so that the priests may make offerings to JHWE and that they may also not perish of hunger. The Priest were eating the best meat that was delivered to the Temple – and the scraps of fat they placed on the alter. As it was then – as it is now. Tithing is the quickest way to wealth for a priest because he gets first pick of the Meat or the treasures. In this part of the word, Meat referred to food, and not money.
JHWE wanted food in His house so the people would have something to eat in the flesh. Spiritual food does not soothe real hunger pains. Even in the old testament the tithe was consumed and shared with the poor.
Now son, ask yourself, when was the last time your church gave you some Meat / Money? The WHORE no longer cares for her flock, she manipulates the flock to care for her. Her lust after riches and her desire for gold and fine clothes, has drowned her hankering after the word of JHWE.
Those who are offended and will shout from the rooftops that this word is false and that the writer hereof is serving his own lack of commitment, will say that even in the new testament, Christ Jesus commanded that the tithes belong in the church of JHWE.
Write down this word!
Mark 21:22 21 Then he said to them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
The WHORE have taught that this passage of scripture is saying render the tithe unto God, but when the Spirit of God opens the eyes of the reader, he will find that this scripture has nothing to do with paying tithes. There is no relevance or even a connection between the scripture and the tithes.
Read the Word of God with an open eye.
In the days before this scripture was written down the Pharisees and Sadducees, during the last days of Christ on earth, got together, and plotted on how to ensnare Christ Jesus in a state of Treason with Rome. Their plan was to present Jesus with a coin which had an impression of The Ruler Caesar, as your money today contains impressions of rulers.
They asked Jesus should a believer pay tribute, honour, or taxes to the Head of State, as Caesar was honoured and due with the currency of Rome. Christ Jesus answered their question by proclaiming: “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s” because that form of currency belonged to Rome.
Wisdom, for the first time since my first encounter with them, sat down in front of me and he said: “The ruler had the money designed to honour himself, so then the same money should be rendered unto him in the form of taxes. The face of JHWE cannot be seen by man and therefor the face of JHWE was never placed on a coin. The Savior didn’t have a matching form of currency. If you have no money, then what could you still render unto God? Christ Jesus never placed a charge to us for Prayers or Worship, but to charged is to worship at his feet. Praise and worship, the breaking of bread and the teaching of the Word in the WHORE church will cost you an offering or a tithe.
Note with care Rock of God, that the Pharisees and Sadducees had money from Caesar however the scripture never recorded The Son of God as having the same money. Whereas Caesar had a Tax due and payable to Rome, JHWE never placed Man under a burden of Tax for the gift of his Son Christ Jesus. But the WHORE has. JHWE demanded that man is to have no other God and He demanded man to Love thy neighbor – these are just two of the things that man must render unto God.
Every time man pay a Tithe to the WHORE, man is in fact paying a Jesus Tax.
Take up your quill and write down this word, for the WHORE professes that the payment of one tenth of your possessions is also demanded in the New Testament. She again takes and isolates a portion of the Word of JHWE and then she deceives man to bring into the coffers of her temple:
Hebrew 7:8 “And here men that die receive tithes; but there he will receive them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives.”
The WHORE deceives man into believing her rendition of the Word of JHWE and they never question the presentation of this scripture, because they believe their WHORE teacher when he says it serves as proof of tithing in The New Testament. Her priests also use the same scripture to prove that Redeemed children of JHWE. My son, this is only manipulation to serve her own purpose!
Meditate and read the word in its complete body and then you would clearly see that the writer starts the instruction by recalling to memory, the rescue of Lot by Abraham. Divide the instruction in two parts and you will find that the first half of Hebrew Chapter 7 is written to man in the shape of a parable or a story, so that man does not need to have another man interpret the simple and clear word of JHWE. It serves as a recalling of Genesis Chapter 14. When man does not read the complete instruction, from verse 1 to the end, then man could easily be cheated to come under the impression in verses 1 to 9 that the redeemed son of God, Paul, is instructing man to pay tithes as Abraham paid tithes, but that is not is a lie told by the WHORE, to place the children of JHWE under a curse and fear of not doing her will.
Meditate on the complete instruction from the beginning to the end and you will see that the writer says in so many words that those men died because none of them were Levi Priest nor descendants of the original Levi Tribe (The Tribe of The Priests), therefore their deaths were justified.
If you meditate on this word with insight received from the Holy Spirit, [Hebrews Chapter 7] then you will understand just how serious Paul felt about the collecting of tithes if those who collected the tithes, were not descendants of the Levi Priests.
Meditate further on Hebrews 7 verse 8 and in this depiction of the Word of JHWE, you will find that the men who received the tithing die; but there he receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives. 9 And as I may so say, Levi also, who receive tithes, payed tithes in Abraham. 10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchizedek met him. 11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchizedek, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
[MY OWN MEDITATION AND DISCOVERY AFTER THE FACT: Here Paul displayed his respect for those of direct Bloodline to the Priests, and his discontent for the Law. We no longer have any living members of the Levitical Priesthood, nor were any alive at the time Paul wrote the Book of Hebrew.
The Levi Priests and their descendants were the only people allowed to collect tithes which explained why the imitators and imposters died.]
8 And here men that die receive tithes; but there he received them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives.
[AGAIN, MY RESEARCH REVEALED A STUNNING TRUTH: This is the reason the current Jews who still live according to the Law, do not require their communities to pay tithes. The Jews do not practice Tithing because there are no Levi Priests alive to take those offering to the alter – nor can they locate the original Alter. Paul goes on to conclude that we have no High Priest as ordained under the, Law but we do have Jesus, the one and only High Priest.]
22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. 23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: 24 But this man, because he continued ever, possessed an unchangeable priesthood.
“Contemplate this son of God, If Christ Jesus is the only living, true and remaining High Priest since after the resolve of The Melchizedek and his priesthood, then why are you paying Tithes to the church?
WARNING TO THE WHORE CHURCH.
Son of the Most High God, redeemed in the blood of Christ, convey this message to the multitude. This message was taught to you today to tear asunder the many lies used by the WHORE Church to justify tithing. There can be no doubt of this teaching as you have been placed in the knowledge of the truth by meditating on the Word of JHWE and by reading and understanding the truth as it is present in the Word of JHWE and not in the mouth of the WHORE Priests.
When man finds himself in a congregation, in the midst of redeemed children of JHWE, through Christ Jesus His Son, and he does not feel extorted, where he does not perceive pressure to give and pay a tenth of his possession every time he enters the temple, then he is surely blessed, for then he is in the gathering of a man of God, who follows God and who adhere to His Commands.
My son, recall the teaching of yesterday regarding fear.
How many redeemed believers live from day to day, from teaching to teaching, in a state of constant fear that God is going to curse them if they don’t give a tenth of their income to the Church?
Does JHWE operate in a spirit of fear?
Does JHWE rule by judgement?
Does JHWE curse His beloved bride?
JHWE is LOVE.
JHWE paid all your debts.
Bring offerings into His house as the Spirit of God leads you. Be under no condemnation, never in fear, but bring into the house of the Lord with a joyful heart, with praise and jubilation and the Everlasting God will clothe and feed you, will keep you safe and in good health, will bless you as the widow was blessed because she gave with the joy of the Lord, and she brought what she could and what she desired to give unto the Lord her God.
Bring with a thankful heart of what you received, but beware the deceit of the WHORE, for she presents herself as an angel of light, as a teacher of truth, yet she twists the written Word, by leaving aside the truth. She covers under a shroud what does not fit in her plan and she continue to be a robber in the house of the Lord.
[Again I researched through my theology books after the visitation and found the following, in the text books of the Dutch Reformed Church, under the hand of a man called Dr Zeiss. This is the same scaring tactics perfected by Pope Leo X and later became the reason the American Settlers ran from England – and the Church. They wanted to get away from Forced Tithing – unfortunately that same Tithing Infection has reappeared in our modern churches. The reason Tithing is back and stronger than ever, is due in part to its ability to raise a lot of money for Pastors, which has nothing to do with God.
God does not need your money – Pastors needs your money. The reason Pastors have developed an addiction to Tithes is because it takes a lot of money to maintain a Church. Your church is Top Heavy with Bills, and just like in the Corporate world of Free Enterprise, that high cost of operation is passed down to you – the consumer / member. The Pastor and his entire Family is also living directly out of the collection plate – which is the primary reason tithing is still alive.
If you really want to be a Blessing – then you also have the right in Christ to give your money directly to areas of need. The institution of Church has been successful in exempting you from your responsibility to give directly to the homeless, and pay light bills out of your own pocket.
Church has allowed you to hide behind a stingy Benevolence Fund and walk away from your weekly Feel Good Session with a false sense of ministry. If you have found yourself in a Jesus Business, then I close with the following reminder: You are the church Now Continue the wonderful work of Christ.]
Then WISDOM said to write this down as well:
An open letter to the Teachers, Pastors, Priests, Dominee’s and church leaders:
When man is called to serve JHWE with his whole life, all his strength and all his soul, then he needs to remember that true service in the Name of JHWE is not the reciting of rehearsed messages. Nor is it the continued and extended reading of the scriptures to Believers during the gathering of the redeemed, the church and the congregation.
To walk in truth, to be the teacher and the minister to the flock of JHWE entrusted to him, means working every day to seek the Kingdom of JHWE. His Kingdom is to be found in the improving of the lives of those in need, EVERYDAY. The doors to the temple of JHWE should not be closed for the most majority of the week, for that evades the purpose of a real ministry! Man’s service to JHWE doesn’t have hours of operation, for if that was the truth, then Christ Jesus would have had hours of operation.
Make note if this man of God, this is the reason why the Saviour, the Son of God, Jesus Christ, is the only one allowed by Father JHWE, as it is commanded on His word throughout the New Testament, to collect a tithe, and everyone else should simply pay their offerings with a joyful heart. Never should they refer to it as a tithe for no one is allowed to receive such a tithe except for Christ Jesus, refer to the tithe as an offer only. If you’re the congregation a man belongs to is a true ministry and is doing the work of Christ, in His example, then man is free to bring his offerings into that house of God.
If the Teacher and the elders in his congregation plays the role of entertainment in the Name of Christ Jesus, they should take note that the time has come to root out the WHORE, to expose her for the WHORE she is and to eradicate the bride of her falsehood and her lust after mammon.
We were always at home today. I was schooled as if at the feet of the Master Himself. I could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit the entire time. As I listened and as I wrote, one thing became clear. The prosperity message was never intended to be a message from God. It became clear that JHWE always had our backs, that He always cared for us and that the prosperity message was the greatest feat of the Evil one in present day, to deceive children of God to follow and yearn after mammon, its worldly power and its demented nature.
Wisdom left me with an instruction and a blessing. The instruction follows hereunder, and the blessing was thus: “Be blessed in your come and go. Be blessed in the meditation of His word. Receive His revelation when you enter His presence and spend your days in Fasting and prayer. Pray for insight, revelation and strength. Pray for His guidance, care and shelter. Seek the expansion of the Kingdom of God so that He can expand your borders and bless you with sufficient to cover your every need. Be blessed in the Name of the Father, His Son Jehoshua and the Holy Spirit.
I was instructed to read up on the issues highlighted in green above. I was told where to look and what I would find and that I am not allowed to soften the wording of this message. I coloured the areas recited from the Word in Blue, even though the whole message was written with the blue ink I was handed.
I could close my eyes and type this message while reading from the document I wrote by hand. I have a horrible handwriting and I have been challenged even by professors to return to school and demand my school fees back because of the atrocious handwriting I have. This time it was as if it was printed in flowing letters, such as cursive writing and I truly desire to be able to write like that. Even more, I would really have liked if that hand-written document was placed in my hand and that it became a real tangible document. But the instructions stay the same. Spread this word. It is to expose the Great WHORE.
The Christian churches are very quick to point fingers at the Roman Catholic Church when they preach a sermon on the Great WHORE of the End Times. This message was directed at themselves first. The hand has to be stuck in own bosom and pointing to others is strictly forbidden. The time has come to confess, repent, star afresh. To become the caretaker of the flock. To feed the flock. To seek the Kingdom of God always. God will take care of the accounts.
In any event, where did God instruct man to build more temples?
Where did He instruct man to build places where they can gather?
He instructed Solomon to build THE TEMPLE. HIS TEMPLE. It was built where Jerusalem is today. That was His only Temple under direct instruction. Never has He ordered another man to build a second temple.
His house is a place where man should be allowed to come to serve God and to be fed. Not a place of splendour and exuberance.
It is a place where the greatness of JHWE can be taught and where man is welcome to seek the face of the Living God JHWE.
The money spent on the building, was money entrusted to the church of God to feed the hungry, to clothe the orphans, to comfort the old and the broken.
How many millions of people could have been cared for, and for how long would they have been cared for, if the mega church buildings were not built and that money spent on the instructions that God gave His sons?
The new testament church is the gathering of the redeemed saints in each other’s houses, as often as they could gather.
NOT ON SUNDAYS.
As often as they could. Not in the temple on the hill. Not in a massive building that can seat every man in the city. The instructions read that they should gather, as often as they could, wherever they could.
This was very different, and I am really looking forward to the teaching in the truths of the Word.
May all the readers be blessed.
IN the name of Jesus, the Christ.
