Not once, in the entire Bible do we read that it is necessary for the saved in Christ Jesus to give ten percent of their money to God or to the church they attend.  Leviticus 27:30,32 reveals that God’s commanded tithe was to be agricultural crops, flocks, and herds.  Deuteronomy 12:10-11 reveal that God’s commanded tithe is not to be observed until crossing the river Jordan and entering the land of Canaan to live there as a citizen of that land. 

Therefore, we know that God never intended people all over the world to tithe. Only those people living in the land of Canaan were required by God to tithe.


Seek direction from God as to whether He wants you to tithe or not?  I did.  He doesn’t.

They Took Their Tithe to Jerusalem
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 29, 2019)

The more I read the word of God, the more light God shines through it. As I was reading Deuteronomy 12:10-11 this morning, I realized something that so many people overlook today, and I myself had overlooked.

The children of Israel were to travel to Jerusalem with their tithe.

Deuteronomy 12:1 These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the 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:

2 Chronicles 6:5 Since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build an house in, that my name might be there; neither chose I any man to be a ruler over my people Israel:
2 Chronicles 6:6 But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.

God chose the city of Jerusalem for the children of Israel to take their tithe.

Yes, I know..I’ve shared these passages before. However, I had previously used Nehemiah 10:37-38 to say that the congregation aka the children of Israel were to keep the tithe in the farming communities scattered throughout Canaan for the Levites to collect there.

I was wrong.

If they kept the tithe in the farming communities, they would have transgressed the command that they were to take the tithe to Jerusalem. So, they did not keep the Levitc tithe in their cities for the Levite to collect there…they took it to Jerusaelm.

Now, Nehemiah 10:37-38 makes it clear that they did not take the tithe to the House of God, when it says,

Nehemiah 10:37 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.
Nehemiah 10:38 And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the Levites take tithes: and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes unto the house of our God, to the chambers, into the treasure house.

It would be impossible for the Levites to take the tithe of the tithe up to the House of God if the tithe was already at the House of God. So, the tithe that was to go to the Levite went to Jerusalem, but did not go to the House of God.

There must have been a meeting place in Jerusalem other than the House of God, where the Levite collected the tithe and took a tithe of the tithe to the House of God.

Now, beside the tithe that was to go to the Levite each year, there was a second tithe that the children of Israel were to take to Jerusalem and eat before the LORD.

Deuteronomy 14:22 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.
Deuteronomy 14:23 And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.
Deuteronomy 14:24 And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee:
Deuteronomy 14:25 Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose:
Deuteronomy 14:26 And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,

Then, every third year, instead of eating a tithe before the Lord in Jerusalem, they were to keep that tithe in their cities to give to the Levite, to the widow, to the fatherless, and to the stranger living in their cities.

Deuteronomy 26:12 When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled;

They were still obligated to give the Levite his tithe even though the Levite shared a tithe every third year.

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.

No Wonder
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 29, 2019)

Does the Bible mean anything to the church anymore?

a) The Bible says God’s tithe is to be agriculture.
The church says God’s tithe is to be money.

b) The Bible says the tithe ordinance was given to the children of Israel.
The church says the tithe ordinance is given to the church.

c) The Bible says the tithe is not to be observed until living in the land of Canaan.
The church says the tithe is to be observed around the world.

d) The Bible says the tithe is to be taken to Jerusalem.
The church says the tithe is to be given in your local town that is not Jerusalem.

e) The Bible says the tithe is to be given to the Levitic tribe in Canaan.
The church says the tithe is to be given to the church.

f) The Bible says to eat a tithe in Jerusalem.
The church says do not eat the tithe.

g) The Bible says to give tithes to Levites, widows, fatherless, and strangers every third year.
The church says the tithe belongs in your local church.

h) The Bible says the year of tithing is every third year in a seven year cycle.
The church says you are to tithe every time you get paid from your work or you receive a government check.

i) The Bible says that the storehouse was a three-tiered structure attached to the Temple in Jerusalem.
The church says that the church is the storehouse.

j) The Bible says Malachi was telling the Priests of Israel to return stolen tithes to the Temple in Jerusalem.
The church says that Malachi is telling church members to bring tithes to the local church.

With all the lies and contradictions being taught and embraced in church assemblies around the world, it is no wonder Jesus uttered this words in Matthew 7:21-23…

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

When it comes to the topic of tithing, the church has departed from God and is teaching a doctrine that is totally foreign to the pages of God’s word. For this reason, the worship in the church…is vain.

Matthew 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Educate, Convince, Convict, and Correct
written by Ronald W Robey
(written December 26, 2019)

All Scripture is profitable for doctrine, (teaching and learning) for reproof, (convincing and convicting) for correction, (adjusting wrong behavior or beliefs) for instruction (training) in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)

How can one be allowing Scripture to correct him, when he insists God’s tithe is to come from his employment wages/government benefits/household monetary income, yet the Scriptures say that God’s tithe is to come from agricultural increase? How can one be allowing Scripture to correct him, when he insists God’s tithe can be observed in a land outside of Canaan, yet the Scriptures say that tithes are to be taken to Jerusalem in the land of Canaan? Doesn’t sound like Scripture is being allowed to convince, convict, and correct at all.

We are to both learn, and teach, from the Old Testament. However, to teach the Old Testament correctly, one must teach that Scripture says

1) God’s tithe is to be agricultural…

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.

Leviticus 27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.

To teach that God’s tithe is to be money is teaching neither Old nor New Testament. For such a doctrine is totally foreign to the pages of both Testaments and actually contradicts both Testaaments.

2) The children of Israel were required to tithe and no other nation…

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

Psalm 147:19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.
Psalm 147:20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.

To teach that God’s tithe is to be observed by people other than those living in Canaan is teaching neither Old nor New Testament. For such a doctrine is totally foreign to the pages of both Testaments and actually contradicts both Testaaments.

3) Tithing is not to be observed until entering Canaan to live there and finding rest from enemies…

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:

To teach that God’s tithe is to be observed outside of the land of Canaan is teaching neither Old nor New Testament. For such a doctrine is totally foreign to the pages of both Testaments and actually contradicts both Testaaments.

One should not argue that God’s tithe is to be obeyed, and then tithe money. God doesn’t recognize that as obedience to His tithe command at all. One should not argue that God’s tithe is to be obeyed, and then tithe outside of Canaan. God doesn’t recognize that as obedience to His tithe command at all.

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

Prophetic Revelation? or Deceit?
by Ronald W Robey

There are many today who profess to be of the Body of Christ who say that I should open to ” prophetic revelation” from God concerning how we, as Christians should live. Their argument is that we cannot live by the Bible, for, “the letter killeth.” To this, I say, “Hogwash!”

They base their argument on a statement that the apostle Paul made in his second epistle to the church at Corinth in which Paul was speaking of being an able minister of the New Testament. Their argument is taken out of context. The New Testament in no way advocates the rejection of the truths contained in the Bible for “prophetic revelation.”

Any “revelation” that contradicts what is written in the Bible is not revelation at all…it is deceit.

The Bible says that God’s word is for ever settled in Heaven. True “prophetic revelations” will never contradict what God has already spoken in His word.

Further, Jesus Christ Himself said that man shall live by EVERY WORD that proceeds from the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4) “Every word” includes both those spoken from Heaven today, (should God speak from Heaven today) and those given us in the Bible. This is how we know that God will never contradict what He has spoken in the Bible.

Further, the apostle Paul, in his first epistle to the young evangelist Timothy, wrote that “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” If what is written in Scripture is no longer valid, then the Scripture is not profitable for any of those things that the apostle Paul told the young evangelist Timothy they are profitable for.

I reject any alleged “prophetic revelation” that contradicts what God has said in the Bible, as “prophetic revelation” that contradicts what God has spoken in the Bible is the same to me as if the serpent is saying, “Yea, hath God said…?”

The Coin That Was Not Tithed
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 24, 2019)

Matthew 22:21 They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

Many people today quote the words of Jesus, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.” They then make an off-the-wall claim that “See…Jesus said to give God ten percent of your money, and give the government the remaining ninety percent.”

Jesus said no such thing. Jesus was not speaking of tithing money in Matthew 22:17-21. This is easily proven by reading Matthew 17:24-27.

Matthew 17:24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?
Matthew 17:25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?
Matthew 17:26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.
Matthew 17:27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

If Jesus meant that ten percent of your money belongs to God in Matthew 22:17-21, why did He not give ten percent of the coin in Matthew 17:24-27 to God? Why did He give the entire coin to Roman Tax Collectors instead? Did Jesus have a ‘lapse of memory’ in Matthew 17:24-27, but suddenly remembered that money is to be tithed in Matthew 22:17-21?

Of course not! Jesus did not tithe the money in Matthew 17:24-27 because He knew that His Father in Heaven did not require tithes of money. God said tithes were to be agricultural crops, flocks, and herds.

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.

Leviticus 27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.

In Matthew 17:24-27, Jesus gave the coin to the Roman Tax Collectors because the coin rightly belonged to the Roman government…it has the image and superscription of Caesar on it…just like the coin in Matthew 22:17-21 did.

Coins minted with the image of government rulers on them belong to the government. Man was created in God’s image, and should yield himself to God for God’s service.

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

No Longer Truth
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 15, 2019)

You would be appalled if I told you to

a) reject what is written in your Bible

and that

b) the Bible is no longer God’s truth

Relax…I would never tell anyone to reject what is written in the Bible. Nor would I tell them that what is written in the Bible is no longer truth. But, what if I told you that someone else has already convinced you to believe that you are to reject what is written in your Bible and that the Bible is no longer truth…

…and that you don’t even realize that you have been bewitched into believing those things?.

For instance,

a) God’s word says that His tithe is to be agricultural crops, flocks, and herds. (Leviticus 27:30,32) But many pastors have conditioned their congregations to believe that God’s tithe is a tenth of their money.

If your pastor teaches you that God’s tithe is to be a tenth of your money, your pastor is inadvertently telling you to reject God’s word, because God’s word is no longer truth.

b) God’s word says that the only people God commanded to tithe were the children of Israel. But many pastors have conditioned their congregations to believe that God commands them to tithe.

If your pastor teaches you that God commands you to tithe, your pastor is inadvertently telling you to reject God’s word, because God’s word is no longer truth.

c) God’s word says that the congregation is not to tithe to the House of God. (Numbers 18:21-22; Nehemiah 10:29,37-38) But many pastors have conditioned their congregations to believe that they are to tithe to the House of God.

If your pastor teaches you that the congregation is to “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse,” your pastor is inadvertently telling you to reject God’s word, because God’s word is no longer truth.

d) God’s word says that the place to take tithes is Jerusalem. (Deuteronomy 12:10-11; 2 Chronicles 6:5-6) But many pastors have conditioned their congregations to believe that tithes are to be be brought to their local church that is not in Jerusalem.

If your pastor teaches that tithes are to be brought to your loccal church, your pastor is inadvertently telling you to reject God’s word, because God’s word is no longer truth.

Now, compare what your pastor has told you concerning God’s comanded tithes with the Scripture references I posted in “a-d” above. If you reject what the Scriptures clearly say, but embrace what your pastors have taught you…

…you have successfully been conditioned by your pastor to believe that the Bible is no longer truth and is to be rejected..

Amos 3:3 asks the question, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” I have to ask, are you walking with God? or are you walking with your pastor?

Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
