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.

Do You Qualify?
by Ronald W Robey
(written June 17, 2021)

Do you qualify to receive God’s commanded tithes? Let’s find out, shall we?

The Bible only names four classes of people that are eligible to receive God’s commanded tithes…

a) the tribe of Levi (Num 18:21-26)

b) women who lost their husbands to death (Deut 26:12-17)

c) children who lost their fathers to death or whose fathers have abandoned them (Deut 26:12-17)

d) foreigners (Deut 26:12-17)

There is an additional prerequisite that must be met in order for any of these four classes of people to be eligible to receive God’s commanded tithes…

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:

…they must be living in the land of Canaan/Israel.

Even if you can prove that you are a biological descendant of the biblical patriarch Levi; even if you are a widow; even if you have no earthly father in your life; even if you are a foreigner…

…if you are not living in the land of Canaan, you are not qualified to receive God’s commanded tithe.

The same applies to your pastor. If he is not living in the land of Canaan, he also is not qualified to receive God’s commanded tithe.

Let’s stay true to the word.

The Bible Says…
by Ronald W Robey
(written June 16, 2021)

For those who insist that the Bible says that God requires tithes……just a reminder that the Bible also says that

a) the congregation is not to go near the House of God with their tithes(Numbers 18:21-23)

b) the congregation is to take their tithes to Jerusalem (Deut. 12:10-11; 2 Chr. 6:5-6)

c) the congregation is give their tithes to biological descendants of the biblical patriarch Levi. (Num. 18:21-26)

You’re welcome.

Oh, and the tithes must be agricultural, not money…

God’s commanded tithe is

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)
o) oxen. (2 Ch. 31:6)
p) sheep. (2 Ch. 31:6)
q) tithes of our ground. (Ne. 10:37)
r) tithes out of the fields. (Ne. 12:44)
s) corn. (Ne. 13:5)
t) wine. (Ne. 13:5)
u) oil. (Ne. 13:5)
v) corn. (Ne. 13:12)
w) wine. (Ne. 13:12)
x) oil. (Ne. 13:12)
y) food. (Mal. 3:10)
z) mint. (Matt. 23:23)
aa) anise. (Matt. 23:23)
ab) cummin. (Matt. 23:23)
ac) mint. (Lu. 11:42)
ad) rue. (Lu. 11:42)
ae) herbs. (Lu. 11:42)

If your tithe is not agricultural; if you are not taking your tithe to Jerusalem; if you are not giving your tithe to biological descendants of the biblical patriarch Levi…

If your tithe is not agricultural; if you are not taking your tithe to Jerusalem; if you are not giving your tithe to biological descendants of the biblical patriarch Levi…

…You are not obeying God in the tithe!



Not Just a Man
by Ronald W Robey
(written July 14, 2021)

There are many who say that when Jesus walked the Earth, He was a mere mortal who was given powers by God to do miracles. I contend that He was no mere mortal, but that He was God in the flesh.

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.

Jeremiah 17:5 proves that Jesus was not a mere mortal man when He walked the Earth. For the Bible says that man that trusts in man is cursed.

When Jesus was on this Earth, He was God in the flesh. He was God before His Father sent Him to be born of the virgin. He was God on Earth. He is God for ever.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, (in time past) and to day, (in time present) and for ever. (in time future)

Jesus even said He was God in John 8:24…

John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins.
and in John 5:24, we read:

John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

A mere mortal man could not utter the words Jesus spoke in John 5:24 & John 8:24, for man that trusts in man is cursed.

A mere mortal who preaches the word of God cannot utter the words Jesus spoke in John 5:24 & John 8:24, for man that trusts in man is cursed. Jesus was no mere mortal. He was God in the flesh. And that is why He was able to speak the words that He spoke.

” if ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins.”

Jesus never ceased being God.
