In Nehemiah 10:37-38, God’s Prophet Nehemiah establishes six facts concerning the manner in which God’s tithe is to be observed. These facts are…
 
1. The fact that God’s word says the tithe is to be given to the bloodline descendants of Levi (Neh. 10:37-38)…makes it wrong to give it to Pastors who are not Levites.
 
3. The fact that God’s word says an Aaronic Priest is to be present when His tithe is given (Neh. 10:37-38)…makes it wrong to give tithes when no Aaronic Priest is present.
 
3. The fact that God’s word says that members of the congregation are not permitted to tithe to the House of God (Neh. 10:37-38) makes it wrong for the congregation to take tithes to the House of God.
 
4. The fact that God’s word says only bloodline descendants of Levi are to take tithes to the House of God (Neh. 10:37-38)…makes it wrong for anyone who is not a bloodline descendant of Levi to take tithes to the House of God.
 
5. The fact that God’s word says the congregation is to take their tithe to rural cities (Neh. 10:37-38)…makes it wrong for anyone to take their tithe to urban cities.
 
6. The fact that God’s word states that the congregations’ firstfruit offering and the tithe are not to go to the same building (Neh. 10:37-38) makes it wrong for members of the congregation to take their firstfruit and tithe offerings to the same building.
 
Nehemiah 10:37-38 And [that] we should bring the firstfruits of our dough, and our offerings, and the fruit of all manner of trees, of wine and of oil, unto the priests, to the chambers of the house of our God; and the tithes of our ground unto the Levites, that the same Levites might have the tithes in all the cities of our tillage.
 
These facts established, we can safely list four more facts…
 
7. Any preacher whose sermon teaches congregants that God requires them to tithe to the religious institution they attend or are a member of is handling the word of God deceitfully.
 
8. Any preacher whose sermon teaches congregants that God requires them to tithe to the religious institution they attend or are a member of is lying to his congregation
 
9. Any preacher whose sermon teaches congregants that God requires them to tithe to the religious institution they attend or are a member of is calling the word of God a lie.
 
10. Any preacher whose sermon teaches congregants that God requires them to tithe to the religious institution they attend or are a member of is calling the God of the word a liar.
