In John 10:27 Jesus Christ said, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
 
A question could be asked today, why so many who claim to know and love Christ are not hearing His Word? Are they truly following Him?
 
God said in Leviticus 27:30-33 that His holy tithe is agricultural. Are you hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd and following Him? or are you following an extortioner who says the commanded tithe is money?
 
God said in Numbers 18:21,24,26,28 that He gave His tithe to the Levitic tribe of the children of Israel. Are you hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd and following Him? or are you following an extortioner who says you are to tithe to people who are not of the Levitic tribe?
 
God said in Deuteronomy 6:1-3 & Deuteronomy 12:10-11 that one was not to start tithing until one crossed Jordan and entered Canaan. Are you hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd and following Him? or are you following an extortioner that requires tithing on Gentile soil?
 
God said in Deuteronomy 14:22-27 that a second tithe was to be taken to a Jewish Feast and eaten by the tither before the LORD God. Are you hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd and following Him? or are you following an extortioner that says we must tithe to our Church and nowhere else?
 
God said in Deuteronomy 14:28-29 that a third tithe was to be given every three years to feed the widows, the orphans, the Levites and foreigners in Israel. Are you hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd and following Him? or are you following an extortioner that says the tithe must go to your Church?
 
God said in Nehemiah 10:37-38 that the firstfruits were to be taken to the Temple storehouse in Jerusalem, and the tithes were to be taken to the Levites. Are you hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd and following Him? or are you following an extortioner that says tithes are to go to pastors on Gentile soil?
 
God said in Psalm 147:19-20 that His statutes and judgments were given to Israel and Israel alone. Are you hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd and following Him? or are you following an extortioner that says the Mosaic Law is to be obeyed by all people of every nation?
 
God’s Word tells us in Acts 15:5,10,19-20,24,28-29 that Gentile Believers are not to be required to keep the Mosaic Law. Are you hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd and following Him? or are you following an extortioner that demands Gentile Believers obey the Mosaic Law?
 
In the last chapter that tithing is mentioned in God’s Holy Word, (Hebrews 7:5-8 ) we are told that the commanded tithe is the same agricultural tithe commanded in the Pentateuch more than 1500 years earlier. It is, “according to the Law.” Are you hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd and following Him? or are you following an extortioner that says the commanded tithe is money?
 
Are you Are you hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd and following Him? or have you rejected His decrees concerning His holy tithe and chosen your pastor’s path of deceit?
 
Extortion: The obtaining of property from another, with his consent, induced by wrongful use of actual or threatened force, violence, or fear, or under color of official right.
 
Pastor’s are deceitfully preaching a a monetary tithe command as if it is a doctrine ordained and directed by God,” under color of official right,” It is not. They are deceiving many, taking money from them, in a manner that God never authorized any of His ministers to do.
 
There is not one Scripture in the entire Bible where God amended His tithe command to extend to the New Testament Church. Nor is there an amendment in His Word to make the tithe a monetary tithe instead of an agricultural one.
 
If God didn’t amend the tithe in His Word, how can we, who are supposed to hear the voice of God and follow Him, say He requires tithes of money? There is absolutely no justification for such an action.
 
Proverbs 30:6 tells us we are not to add to God’s Word. For that reason, we cannot change the tithe that He said was to be agricultural into a monetary tithe. we cannot, in good conscience, bring a tithe that was meant for Israel alone to observe to another geographical location.
 
You see, you cannot just focus on the fact that God commanded a tenth, and then totally ignore what that tenth was to consist of, where it was to be taken to, to whom it was to be given, and when it was to be given. You are picking and choosing that a tithe is required, yet dismissing all other aspects concerning God’s holy tithe.
 
Those who teach contrary to the written Word of God are not hearing the voice of God and therefore, can not be following Him.
 
Monetary tithing exists in our religious institutions today because of lied from the pulpits and ignorance in the pews.
