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.
