No Better

Argument: “The church cannot be funded properly if we do not obey the Spirit of God and give our tithes. It is our tithes that fund the operations of His Kingdom.

Rebuttal: The Bible says that God’s commanded tithe is to be

a) seed of the land. (Le. 27:30)
b) fruit of the tree. (Le. 27:30)
c) every tenth animal to pass under the rod. (Le 27:32)
d) corn. (De. 12:17)
e) wine. (De. 12:17)
f) oil. (De. 12:17)
g) seed. (De. 14:22)
h) corn. (De. 14:23)
i) wine. (De.14:23)
j) oil. (De.14:23)
k) oxen. (De. 14:26)
l) sheep. (De. 14:26)
m) wine. (De. 14:26)
n) strong drink. (De. 14:26)

Holy men of old wrote these things under inspiration of the Holy Spirit. So I highly doubt that the Holy Spirit is going to tell anyone, “No…that’s not right. God did not require tithes of seed of the land; fruit of the tree; every tenth animal to pass under the rod; oil, wine, strong drink…God required tithes of money…and requires tithes of your money today.”

I’ll continue to preach what is written in God’s word concerning His required tithes. If I’m wrong, then God’s word is also wrong.

If God’s Kingdom must be funded through doctrines that contradict the Bible, then God’s Kingdom is no better than Satan’s Kingdom.

You’re Doing It All Wrong!

In the Bible, God tells us WHAT His required tithe are to consist of. (see Leviticus 27:30,32; Deuteronomy 12:17)

In the Bible God tells us WHO is required to tithe. (see Leviticus 27:30-34; Numbers 18:26)

In the Bible, God tells us WHO is to receive tithes. (see Numbers 18: 21-26; Deuteronomy 14:27-29; 26:12-17)

In the Bible, God tells us HOW His required tithe is to be observed. (see Numbers 18:21-31; Nehemiah 10:37-38)

In the Bible, God tells us WHERE tithes are to be observed. (see Deuteronomy 12:10-11; 2 Chronicles 6:5-6)

In the Bible, God tells us WHO He requires to tithe to the House of God. (see Numbers 18:26-31; Nehemiah 10:37-38)

In the Bible, God tells us WHEN His required tithes are to be observed. (see Deuteronomy 14:22-26,28-29; 26:12-17)

In the Bible, God tells us WHY tithes are to be observed. (see Numbers 18:21-23; Deuteronomy 14:22-23)

Sadly, while the what’s; who’s; how’s; where’s; when’s; and why’s concerning God’s commamnded tithes are carried to the pulpits in many religious institutions around the world, they never reach the ears of the members of the congregation’s in these religious institutions.

Instead, the pastor will open the Book that contains the what’s; who’s; how’s; where’s; when’s; and why’s of God’s commanded tithe and then preach an entirely different tithe that is to be observed by an entirely different people in an entirely different location in an entirely different manner.

And then they have the audacity to tell the members of their congregations that it is “God’s tithe” they are preaching.

Wake up saints…you’re doing it all wrong. And therefore God doesn’t even recognize your “obedience to tithing” as obedience to Him.

James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

If He Contradicts the Bible…He’s Lying!
by Ronald W Robey
(written July 21, 2021)

There is a way to tell if a pastor is lying to his congregation when he preaches a tithe sermon.

1. If the pastor teaches that God requires monetary tithes, he contradicts Leviticus 27:30,32 & Deuteronomy 12:17.

2. If a pastor preaches that God requires the saved in Christ to tithe, he contradicts Leviticus 27:34; Psalms 147:19-20; & Acts 15:28-29.

3. If a pastor preaches that God requires him to take tithes from his congregation, he contradicts Numbers 18:21 & Psalms 147:19-20.

4. If a pastor teaches that God requires the congregation to bring tithes to the House of God, he contradicts Numbers 18:21-23 & Nehemiah 10:29,37-38.

5. If a pastor that lives outside of the land of Canaan preaches that tithes are to be brought to his local church, he contradicts Deuteronomy 12:10-11.

6. If a pastor preaches that the congregation is not to eat their tithes, he contradicts his own statement that tithes are money.

7. If a pastor preaches that tithes and firstfruits are the same, he contradicts Nehemiah 10:29,37-38.

8. If a pastor preaches that Malachi 3:10 is instruction for the congregation of the new covenant Body of Believers in Christ Jesus to tithe, he contradicts Malachi 1:1; 2:1; & 3:6.

9. If a pastor preaches that Matthew 23:23 & Luke 11:42 say that God requires monetary tithes, he contradicts the words of Jesus Christ in Matthew 23:23 & Luke 11:42.

10. If a pastor teaches that Matthew 23:23 & Luke 11:42 are verses that prove Chrstians are to tithe, he contradicts the words of Jesus Chirst in Matthew 23:23 & Luke 11:42.

11. If a pastor preaches that Luke 18:9 is saying that we are required to tithe our money, he is contradicting Leviticus 27:30, Deuteronomy 12:17, Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:42; & Luke 9.

12. If a pastor teaches that Hebrews 7:8 says that the saved in Christ are requried to tithe their money, he contradicts the context, i.e Hebrews 7:5-9.

How do you know if a pastor is lying? If he contradicts the Bible…

…he’s lying!.

It Was Impossible!
by Ronald W Robey
(written July 19, 2021)

Under the Law, it was impossible for Gentiles to tithe to God..

Leviticus 27:30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD.

In Leviticus 27:30 God said that the tithe of the land is His. Verse 34 of this same chapter tells us that the command to tithe was given to the children of Israel.

Leviticus 27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

In Deuteronomy 12:10-11 we read that the place to tithe is located in the land of Canaan. Therefore, when God said that the tithe of the land is His in Leviticus 27:30, He was specifically referring to the land of Canaan.
He was not speaking of the entire Earth.

Deuteronomy 12:10 But when ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the LORD your God giveth you to inherit, and when he giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety;
Deuteronomy 12:11 Then there shall be a place which the LORD your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD:
One may argie, “But Exodus 12:49 says, ‘One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.’ Therefore tithing is not just for Israelites to observe, but for Gentiles also.”

Not so fast…

The children of Israel inherited the land of Canaan, and the tithe was to come from the agriculture that the land produced. Gentiles owned no part of the land. This begs the question…

What would Gentiles tithe, if they owned no land on which to raise/breed the items that God said were to be tithed?

The answer, of course, is they could not tithe at all. So the argument that so many Gentiles give, “God never told us to stop tithing” fails miserably. Gentiles could not tithe, so why would God tell them to stop doing what they were not doing to begin with?

It was impossible for Gentiles to even obey God’s command to tithe.

Yes, But Is it Working God’s Way?
by Ronald W Robey
(written July 01, 2021)

You say tithe is working for you, and you will continue to tithe? Tithe may be working for you, but if it is not working in the manner God said it will work, you must not be tithing in the manner God said to tithe.
.
Malachi 3:10 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.Malachi 3:11 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.Malachi 3:12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

Question: Has God opened the windows of Heaven and poured out a blessing that was so large that you had absolutely no room in your house or in your barn to contain that blessing as He promised?

Question: Has God truly rebuked the devourer, so that your gardens were not damaged by insects as He promised?
Question: Has He kept the fruit in your gardens from falling off the vine prematurely as He promised?

Question: Do all nations of the world call your nation blessed as He promised?

Question: Is your land a delightsome land as He promised?

If not, then God has not bestowed upon you the promises He gave in Malachi 3:10-12 and you must not be tithing in the manner God commanded.

Might want to Study the Scriptures diligently to see what exactly God said concerning

a) who He required to tithe
b) who He said the tithe is to be given to
c) what He said His tithe is to consist of
d) where He said His tithe is to be taken
e) who He said is required to tithe to the House of God

James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

If you offend in just one point of God’s tithe ordinance, you are guilty of not tithing at all. You must keep all the commands written in the ordinance in order to experience the blessings promised for observing the ordinance.

How to Obey God in the Tithe
by Ronald W Robey
(written August 22, 2019)

How to be obedient to God in tithing:


1. Move to the land of Israel before you begin tithing. Deuteronomy 12:10-11


To tithe in any other land than the land of Israel is an act of disobedience to God’s tithe command.


2. Tithe only from agriculture and agricultural food by-products. Leviticus 27:30,32; Deuteronomy 12:17; 14:22-23,26


To tithe from anything other than agriculture and agricultural food by-products is an act of disobedience to God’s tithe command.


3. In years one, two, four, and five of a seven-year-cycle, take a family vacation to Jerusalem and eat a tithe in Jerusalem there with your family. Deuteronomy 14:22-26


To not travel to Israel years one, two, four, and five in seven-year-cycle to eat a tithe with your family in Jerusalem is an act of disobedience to God’s tithe command.


4. In years three and six of a seven-year-cycle, do not eat your tithe, but give it to bloodline descendants of the biblical patriarch Levi; to women who have lost their husbands to death; to children who have lost their fathers to death or whose fathers have abandoned them; and to foreigners visiting the land of Israel. Deuteronomy 14:28-29; 26:12-17


To not give a tithe to bloodline descendants of the biblical patriarch Levi; to women who have lost their husbands to death; to children who have lost their fathers to death or whose fathers have abandoned them; and to foreigners visiting the land of Israel every third and sixth year in a seven-year-cycle is an act of disobedience to God’s tithe command.


note: the seventh year in the seven-year-cycle, you cannot plant seed or reap a harvest. So, no tithe of crops will be required that year; Leviticus 25:1-6


5. If you are not from the bloodline of the biblical patriarch Levi, do not tithe to the House of God. Numbers 18:21-22; Nehemiah 10:29,37-38


To tithe to the House of God when you are not a bloodline descendant of the biblical patriarch Levi is an act of disobedience to God’s tithe command.


6. Do not give tithes to a bloodline descendant of the biblical patriarch Levi unless a bloodline descendant of the biblical patriarch Aaron is present with him. Nehemiah 10:37-38


To give tithe when a bloodline descendant of the biblical patriarch Aaron is not present is an act of disobedience to God’s tithe command.


7. If you are a bloodline descendant of the biblical patriarch Levi, take a tithe of the tithes you receive from others to the House of God.


To tithe to the House of God when you are not a bloodline descendant of the biblical patriarch Levi is an act of disobedience to God’s tithe command.


These are the guidelines that God has given in His word concerning the elements of His commanded tithe; the givers of His commanded tithe; the recipients of his commanded tithe; the location of his commanded tithe; and the time of His commanded tithe.


If you cannot meet any one of the seven biblical requirements above, then it is best that you not attempt to tithe at all. For to be guilty of one point of the Law is to be guilty of all, and is to bring a curse upon you.


James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.


Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

Why Should God be Pleased?
by Ronald W Robey
(written June 24, 2021)


Many church members around the world today are told by their pastors that if they give their tithes faithfully, God will be pleased with them. Why would their tithes be pleasing to God, when

a) they are not tithing what God said was to be tithed, i.e agriculture and agricultural food by-products? Levitiicus 27:30,32; Deuteronomy 12:17; 14:22-23,26

b) they are not taking the tithe to where God said the tithe is to be taken, i.e the city of Jerusalem? Deuteronomy 12:10-11; 2 Chronicles 6:5-6

c) they are not giving the tithe to whom God said the tithe is to be given, i.e the tribe of Levi? Numbers 18:21-26; Deuteronomy 14:27-29; 26:12; Nehemiah 10:29,37-38

d) they are not giving the tithe when God said the tithe is to be given, i.e the third year? Deuteronomy 14:28-29; 26:12

Why should God be pleased, when people are not observing tithes as He decreed in His word they are to be observed?

It appears that people in the church are satisfied with doing things their own way and not God’s way.
Why should He be pleased?

Emulating the Serpent
by Ronald W Robey
(written June 23, 2021)

Why pastors are wrong to teach that God requires monetary tithes…

…because the doctrine of a monetary tithe requirement doctrine is on the same level as the serpent in the garden that asked the woman, “Yea, hath God said,…?”

God’s word is clear. His commanded tithe was to be
a) agricultural based, not money based. (Lev. 27:30,32; Deut. 12:17; 14:22-23,26)

b) required only of the twelve tribes of Israel. (Lev. 27:34; Psa. 147:19-20)

c) not to be observed outside of the land of Canaan/Israel. (Deut. 12:10-11)

Further, God said that

d) the congregation is not to take tithes to the House of God. (Num. 18:21-23; this is reaffirmed in Neh. 10:29,37-38)

e) only the tribe of Levi is commanded and authorized to take tithes to the House of God. (Num. 18:24-31; Neh 10:29,37-38)

Given the Scriptural proof of what God’s commanded tithe is; who was commanded to tithe; and where God’s commanded tithe was to be observed, it is clear that pastors that teach that God requires monetary tithes are emulating the serpent in the garden.

They call the word of God a lie and the God of the word a liar.

Get a Job!
by Ronald W Robey
(written June 22, 2021)


In the Bible, the tribe of Levi aka, Levites, were given authority by God to take tithes of the children of Israel aka, the congregation. The Levites were to be given these tithes for two reasons:

1. Because they received no land inheritance among the children of Israel

2. For their service in the Tabernacle/Temple aka, the House of God


Numbers 18:21 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.
Numbers 18:22 Neither must the children of Israel henceforth come nigh the tabernacle of the congregation, lest they bear sin, and die.
Numbers 18:23 But the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel they have no inheritance.
Numbers 18:24 But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as an 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.


In post-crucifixion church assemblies, Ministers of the Gospel have no authority to take tithes of their congregations. Why not?


a) Ministers of the Gospel, if saved, have received the same inheritance as the saved members of their congregations…
…eternal life.


John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
Ephesians 1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.


b) Ministers of the Gospel are to work a job apart from their Ministerial calling to support themelves.


Acts 20:33 I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel.
Acts 20:34 Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.
Acts 20:35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Did they, or didn’t they inherit enternal life when they professed Christ? Weren’t they told to get a job apart from ministering to support themselves?

They have no right taking tithes of anyone. They need to get a job!

Wrong Jurisdiction
by Ronald W Robey
(written June 20, 2021)


Scenario: You live in Nashville, Tennessee. Tomorrow morning, as you are getting ready for work, you hear a knock at your door. It is two police from Selma, Alabama
The Selma Police accuse you of being a thief. Why? Because Selma City Council passed a Law that says that all citizens of Selma, Alabama are to pay annual taxes to the Selma City Government, and you have not paid those taxes.

What would your reaction be?

No doubt, you would be furious. You would respectfully tell them that you live in Nashville, not Selma. You would respectfully tell them that the taxes imposed upon the citizens of Selma by the Selma City Council have no bearing on the citizens of Nashville, would you not? You would respectfully tell the Selma Police that the Selma City Council has no jurisdiction over the citizens of Nashville, Tennessee.

Now compare the above scenariowith the tithe that God requires in the Bible. According to the Bible, the command to tithe was given to the children of Israel (Lev. 27:30-34) and was to be observed once they were living in the land of Canaan and were at rest from their enemies. (Deut. 12:10-11)

In other words, the command to tithe was a centralized command, not a global command. It was required only of the citizens of the land of Canaan.

So you should be exercising the same attitude in the matter of God’s tithe requirement that you would have toward the Selma Police in the above scenario…

…respectfully tell those who are demanding that you tithe that you do not live in the land of Canaan where God said His commanded tithe is to be observed, and are therefore exempt from the biblical requirement to tithe.

Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
