Will a Man Bribe God?
by Ronald W Robey

Will a man bribe God? Yet, you have bribed Him.

 
But you say, “How have we bribed Him?”
 
With ten percent of your money. You are cursed with a curse because you have bribed Him,… everyone of you. You have attempted to pay God ten percent of your money in order to receive His divine favor and His protection.
 
 
Repent of this wickedness you are doing! Jesus Christ already paid for God’s divine favor upon your life. It is because of faith in Jesus Christ that God’s mercies are new every morning,… not because you give ten percent of your money to a religious institution doing business as a “church”.
 
God is not a mob Boss. He is not a Mafia Don who sends out thugs to collect protection money from people. He does not threaten people with curses if they fail to give them ten percent of their financial income.
 
Wake up, people! You have allowed ravenous wolves to enter in among you, and they are extorting your money and pointing your to a god that does not have the power to save you. The god these wolves are preaching requires you to tithe your monetary income, while the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth, the God that sits upon His throne in the third Heaven,… NEVER spoke such a command from Heaven to any Apostle or Prophet of His.

Monetary tithing is a criminal act against the God of Heaven and against the cross of Christ.

Nuggets of Truth from Malachi
by Ronald W Robey
 
The last Book in the Old Testament section of our Bible holds many precious nuggets of truth that so many people today never realized. They do not realize these nuggets are in Malachi for two reasons,..
 
1. Their Pastor’s do not tell them these nuggets of truth are in Malachi.
2. They themselves do not study the Bible as they should, but instead allow their Pastor’s to teach them falsely.
 
Let us look at just a few of the nuggets we can find in the pages of the Book of Malachi, shall we?
 
a) The storehouse Malachi is speaking of is attached to the Temple in Jerusalem.
 
b) My local New Covenant Church is not the storehouse Malachi was speaking of.
 
c) Malachi is not saying to tithe your monetary income to God’s House.
 
d) Malachi was speaking to a people living under the Mosaic/Levitic Law.
 
e) Malachi could not have been speaking of any other kind of tithe than that which was required by Mosaic/Levitic Law, i.e.; a tithe of agricultural crops, flocks and herds.
 
f) Malachi 1:6; & 2:1 reveal that Malachi was speaking to the corrupt Priest’s in Malachi 3:6-12.
 
g) The tithes and offerings had been stolen by the Priest’s,… not by the congregation.
 
h) When Pastor’s use Malachi to teach a monetary tithe, they are guilty of handling the word of God deceitfully.
 
i) The Priest’s of Israel were guilty of despising God’s name because they exchanged the best animals for lame and blind animals
 
j) Pastor’s are guilty of despising God’s name because they have exchanged His commanded agricultural tithes for monetary tithes.
 
k) In doing things their own way instead of God’s way, the Priest’s of Israel were robbing God of His authority in their lives.
 
l) In doing things their own way instead of God’s way, the Priest’s of God had robbed the nation of Israel of God’s blessing.
 
m) In teaching their own way instead of God’s way, Pastor’s today are guilty of robbing God of His authority in their lives.
 
n) In teaching their own way instead of God’s way, Pastor’s today are guilty of robbing God of His authority in the lives of their congregations.
 
o) In doing things their own way instead of God’s way, Pastor’s are guilty of robbing their congregations of God’s blessing.
 
p) When Malachi promised that God would open the windows of Heaven, Malachi was speaking clouds giving rain to the land of Israel so that plants could grow
 
q) The devourer that Malachi was speaking of was the locust.
 
There are many, many more precious and wonderful nuggets written within the four chapters of the Book of Malachi. I encourage you to take time to study this Book and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal them to you.

A Cunning Deception
by Ronald W Robey
 
Many Pastors claim that tithing is a “eternal principle”? Not one of these Pastors can answer the question as to why neither the Patriarchs; nor the Prophets; nor the Apostles; nor the Lord Jesus Christ Himself taught this “eternal principle” of a monetary tithe that is taught in pulpits around the world today?
 
 
A principle is a tenet, a rule or standard.
 
 
If tithing is an “eternal principle” as so many of these modern preachers claim, then in order for it to be an “eternal principle,” the tithe would consistently, and without deviation, have to be of either war spoils only, (Genesis 14:16-20) or of agricultural increase only (Leviticus 27:30-33)
 
The only tithes mentioned in the Bible are tithes of war spoils and tithes of agricultural products. A monetary income tithe is totally foreign to the word of God.
 
The fact that once the Law was established, man could no longer tithe war spoils proves that the tithing of war spoils was not “eternal”.
 
The fact that Malachi 3:7-10 reveals that tithing was an ordinance, and that Ephesians 2:14-15 reveals that the ordinances were “abolished” in Christ’s flesh, proves that the tithing of agricultural increase was not “eternal”.
 
Since a monetary income tithe cannot be found in the word of God, it is clear that it is a fairly new doctrine, and therefore, not an “eternal principle” at all.
 
 
Also, the only geographical location that we ever see tithing practiced in the Bible is in that area of the world known as “the Holy Land” (Genesis 14:16-20; Deuteronomy 12:1-11).
 
If tithing is an “eternal principal” as many modern preachers claim, then since the only place we see tithing done is in the Holy Land, tithes must be restricted to the Holy Land in order for them to be an “eternal principle”.
 
 
It is quite clear that this alleged “eternal principle” of tithing being preached to congregations from coast to coast on every continent of the world, doesn’t even agree with what is written in the word of God. It is therefore, a cunning deception invented by man and not an “eternal principle” at all.
 
Who Has Bewitched You?
by Ronald W Robey
 
O foolish congregation, who has bewitched you, that you should not know and understand the truth?  Who has cast a spell on you, that you should not know what is written in God’s word?
 
If people would take time to study the word of God, they would discover that Pastor’s that teach that God’s tithe is money and required of New Covenant Believer’s in Christ Jesus are guilty of witchcraft..
 
They have bewitched many in their congregations into believing that God requires monetary tithes, when there is no such requirement written anywhere in the pages of God’s Holy word.
 
There are three reasons as to why many today believe that God requires tithes of their monetary income:
 
1. Lack of proper study of God’s Holy word.
 
2. Lack of understanding what God said His holy tithe is.
 
3. Lack of sound doctrine from the pulpits in the religious institution they attend
 
The only commands that God has given in His word concerning His holy tithe are:
 
1. They are to be agricultural. Leviticus 27:30-33
 
2. They are to be observed in the Promised Land. Deuteronomy 12:1,10-11
 
3. They are to be given to Levites, widows, orphans and foreigners in the Promised Land every three years in a seven year cycle. Numbers 18:24-26; Deuteronomy 14:27:29; 26:12
 
4. The tither is also supposed to eat of a tithe with his family . Deuteronomy 14:22-26
 
5. If one is not a Levite, one is not to take his tithe to the House of God. Nehemiah 10:37-38
 
6. If one is not a Levite, one is to take his tithe to a farming community to give to a Levite. Nehemiah 10:37-38
 
7. A descendant of Aaron MUST BE PRESENT at the time that the tithe is given. Nehemiah 10:37-38
 
The above referenced verses reveal that:
 
a) If you are tithing money instead of agriculture, you are not obeying the word of God.
 
b) If you are tithing in any geographical location other than the Promised Land, you are not obeying the word of God.
 
c) If you are not giving your tithe to Levites, widows, orphans and foreigners in the Promised Land every three years, you are not obeying the word of God.
 
d) If you are not eating a tithe with your family, you are not obeying the word of God.
 
e) If you are not a Levite, but take your tithe to the House of God, you are not obeying the word of God.
 
f) If you are not taking your tithe to a farming community in the Promised Land, you are not obeying the word of God.
 
g) If you are giving your tithe with no descendant of Aaron present, you are not obeying the word of God.
 
If you have been bewitched into believing the lie that God’s commanded tithe is monetary, and are yielding to that lie, you are following man, not God.
Vain Worship
by Ronald W Robey
 
According to Leviticus 27:30-33, the elements of God’s tithe were agricultural increase, not monetary income..
 
According to Leviticus 27:30-34, God’s tithe ordinance was given to the children of Israel.
 
According to Deuteronomy 12:1,10-11, the children of Israel were not to begin tithing until they crossed the river Jordan and were dwelling safely in the land of Canaan.
 
According to Psalms 147:19-20, the command that God gave to Israel were given to no other nation.
 
This means that, in order to rightly teach that God requires Gentile nations to tithe, one must have Scripture that says God commands Gentile nations to tithe.
 
There is no such command found in the entire KJV Bible.
 
Hebrews 7 speaks of Abram’s tithe of war spoils to Melchizedek. It speaks of Israel’s tithe of agricultural crops, flocks and herds to the Levites. But it says absolutely NOTHING of a monetary tithe for the New Covenant Church.
 
In Matthew 15:9, we read that the worship of the Pharisees was in vain because they were teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. The monetary tithe requirement is totally foreign to the word of God. It is therefore, a commandment of men.
 
This begs the question,… Since churches are teaching for doctrine a commandment of men, could their worship also be in vain?
They Are Mistaken
by Ronald W Robey
 
Some people attend worship services at their religious institution with $100 in their wallet, put $5 in the offering plate, and think they have given the Lord His “tithe”.
 
They are mistaken. They have not given God His tithe. They have only given five percent of their money to a religious institution.

God’s word says that His holy tithe is agricultural, not monetary.
They Emulate the Serpent
by Ronald W Robey
 
In the garden of Eden, the serpent used the word of God deceitfully, “Yea, hath God said, Thou shalt not eat of every tree of the Garden.”
 
Today, Pastor’s use the word of God deceitfully, “The tithe is the LORD’s; it is holy unto the LORD.”
 
The serpent added to the word of God, inserting the words “every tree” to God’s command. Pastor’s add to the word of God, saying “God’s tithe is a tenth of your monetary income.” Pastor’s deceitfully add “money” to God’s tithe command..
 
They will then tell you that, “God expects you to obey Him in the tithe.”
 
Tithing money is not “obedience” to God. Rather, it is obedience to a liar. God’s tithe is to come from “the seed of the land; the fruit of the tree; and every tenth animal from the flock or herd to pass under the rod.”
 
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 27:31 And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
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.
Leviticus 27:33 He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.
 
Further, the “land” that God’s tithe is to be observed in is speaking of a specific geographical location,… the children of Israel (who were given the tithe command) were not to begin tithing until they took up residence in the land of Canaan. In other words, the command to tithe was centralized,… not global.
 
Leviticus 27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
 
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:

Just as the serpent beguiled Eve in the garden of Eden, many Pastor’s around the world beguile the members of their flock.  In doing so, they emulate the serpent.
