The Tithe of the Land
by Ronald W Robey
(written August 20, 2021)

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.

In many church assemblies around the world today, church leaders will use the text of Leviticus 27:30 as “proof-text” that Christians are required by God to tithe their money to the local church. However, rightly dividing the word of truth will reveal that Leviticus 27:30 is neither speaking of church assemblies around the world, nor of money.

The “land” referred to in Leviticus 27:30 is not speaking of the entire land mass of the planet Earth. Rather, it is speaking of the land of Canaan.

Notice who the command to tithe was given to in Leviticus 27…

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

Not once in the text of Leviticus 27:30-34 are Christians mentioned. The command to tithe was given solely to the biological bloodline descendants of the biblical patriarch Jacob. Now notice…

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:

The place the children of Israel were to take their tithes was in the land of Israel…not in the wilderness that they were wandering in when God told them that they were to tithe. There was no place for them to tithe while in the wilderness. We know this because of further reading of the word of God…

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 had not named a place for them to take their tithes while they were in the wilderness. He just told them that the tithes were His. They did not begin to tithe until four hundred fifty years AFTER they entered the land of Canaan to live there and they were not warring against their enemies.

The command to tithe was not a command that God expected people to be observed all over the world…

…it was a command that God expected of the owners of the land of Canaan. If you are not an owner of a portion of the land of Canaan, (known as Israel today) then the command to tithe does not apply to you at all.

And Leviticus 27:30-34 is speaking of agricultural tithes, not monetary tithes. It says that God’s holy tithe is to be “the seed of the land; (fruit, vegetables, and grain) the fruit of the tree; (fruits, wine, and oils) and every tenth animal to pass under the rod.” (cattle, sheep, and goats)

A Multi-faceted Contradiction
by Ronald W Robey
(written August 18, 2021)

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2 Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
Since all Scripture is for correction, the Holy Spirit will never contradict the written word of God.


The monetary tithe requirement doctrine is a multi-faceted contradiction to the written word of God.

1. It contradicts the fact that the written word of God reveals that God’s commanded tithe is to be agriculture and agricultural food by-products.

2. It contradicts the fact that the written word of God reveals that God said the command to tithe was given to the Israelites.

3. It contradicts the fact that the written word of God reveals that the place that His tithe is to be observed is in the land of Canaan.

4. It contradicts the fact that the written word of God reveals that God said the congregation is not even to go near the House of God with their tithes.

5. It contradicts the fact that the written word of God reveals that only the tithe of the tithe was to be given to the House of God.

6. It contradicts the fact that the written word of God reveals that only thre tribe of Levi was commanded by God to take tithes to the House of God.

7. It contradicts the fact that Malachi was speaking to Levite Priests when he said to bring the tithes into the storehouse.

8. It contradicts the fact that the storehouse for God’s tithe was a structure in Jerusalem.

Since the monetary tithe requirement contradicts the word of God, this can mean only one of two things…

a) either the written word of God is lying about God’s commanded tithe
or
b) pastors are lying about God’s commanded tithe

Amos 3:3 asks the question:

Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

How can pastors be walking with God, when they don’t agree with His written word?

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.

Are You Really Obeying God?
by Ronald W Robey
(written August 08, 2021)


So many today say they want to obey God in the tithe. Here’s how to obey God in the tithe:

a) if you want to obey God in the tithe, you must first have inherited land in the land of Israel and move to the land of Israel. If you have not moved to Israel as commanded in Deuteronomy 12:10-11, you are not obeying God in the tithe.

b) if you want to obey God in the tithe, you will tithe agriculture and agricultural food by-products from the land you have inherited in Israel, as commanded in Levitcus 27:30,32; Deuteronomy 12:17. If you are giving a tenth of your money as tithe, you are not obeying God in the tithe.

c) if you want to obey God in the tithe, you will give the tithe to the tribe of Levi as commanded in Numbers 18:21-23. If you are not giving the tithe to the tribe of Levi, you are not obeying God in the tithe.

d) if you want to obey God in the tithe, you will not take your tithe to the House of God (unless you are a bloodline descendant of the biblical patriarch Levi; in which case, you will not have inherited land in Israel but must still be living in Israel) as commanded in Numbers 18:21-22. If you are not a Levite, but are taking your tithe to the House of God, you are not obeying God in the tithe.

e) if you want to obey God in the tithe, you will have a Priest from the biological bloodline of the biblical patriarch Aaron present at the time that you give your tithe as commanded in Numbers 18:24-31. If there is not a descendant of the biblical patriarch Aaron present at the time you give your tithe, you are not obeying God in the tithe.

Remember, the apostle James said, “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” (James 2:10)

Therefore if you are trying to obey God in the tithe but not obeying all that God said concerning the observance of His commanded tithe, (see points ‘a-e’ above) you are guilty of not tithing at all.

Monetary Tithing: A Doctrine Built on Silence
by Ronald W Robey
(written August 09, 2021)


We are not to build our doctrines on silence. We are to build them on the word of God.

The word of God says that the tithes God comamdned are to be agriculture and agricultural food by products. (Le. 27:30,32; De. 12:17) To teach that tithe sare to be money is to call the word of God a lie and the God of the word a liar.

The word of God says that the command to tithe was given to the children of Israel (Le. 27:30-34) to be observed once they were safely living in the land of Canaan. (De. 12:10-11) To teach that tithes are required of Christians and are to be observed all over the world is to call the word of God a lie and the God of the word a liar.

The word of God says the congregation was forbidden by God to take tithes to the House of God. (Nu. 18:21-23; Ne. 10:29,37-38) To teach that the congregation is required by God to tithe to the House of God is to call the word of God a lie and the God of the word a liar.

The word of God says that the congregation is to give tithes to the tribe of Levi. (Nu. 18:21-26; Ne 10:29,37-38) To teach that the congregation is to give tithes to New Testament church leaders is to call the word of God a lie and the God of the word a liar.

The word of God says that God commanded only Levites to tithe to the House of God. (Ne. 10:29,37-38) To teach that God commands all Christians to tithe to the House of God is to call the word of God a lie and the God of the word a liar.

Tithing, as is taught in many mainstream religious denominations around the world today, is a doctrine invented from silence and contradicts the word of God and the God of the word in practically every facet of the doctrine..

When did God tell man to stop tithing? A better question would be, “When did God authorize pastors to teach a tithe that contradicts the tithe God commanded in His word?”

When Realization Sinks In
by Ronald W Robey
(written August 08, 2021)


So many today confuse tithing and giving. They equate them as being the same thing. They believe they have given God his tithe when they pull a five dollar bill out of their wallet that has one hundred dollars in it and drop that five dollar bill in the collection plate during their morning worship service. They have not tithed.

The word “tithe” means “tenth; tenth part.” It is not just a random amount one chooses to give…it is a set amount…

…either the tenth in numerical sequence, (see Lev. 27:32) or the tenth part of a whole. (see Heb. 7:4)

In the Bible, there are only forty-four verses that speak of tithes. Thirty-six of those forty-four verses speak of God’s commanded tithe. Those thirty-six verses tell the reader the following:

a) the ELEMENTS of God’s commanded tithe
b) the GIVERS of God’s commanded tithe
c) the RECIPIENTS of God’s commanded tithe
d) the LOCATION God’s commanded tithe is to be observed
e) the TIMES God’s commanded tithe is to be observed

1. When you compare what God said the elements of His tithe are to be with what is taught in many mainstream church assemblies, you realize that those church assemblies are not preaching the truth.

2. When you compare who God said is commanded to tithe with what is taught in many mainstream church assemblies, you realize that those church assemblies are not preaching the truth.

3. When you compare who God said is to receive His commanded tithe with what is taught in many mainstream church assemblies, you realize that those church assemblies are not preaching the truth.

4. When you compare where God said His commanded tithe is to be observed with what is taught in many mainstream church assemblies, you realize that those church assemblies are not preaching the truth.

5. When you compare when God said His commanded tithe is to be observed with what is taught in many mainstream church assemblies, you realize that those church assemblies are not preaching the truth.

Once you realize the truth, if you are in a church where the truth is not being preached, you have to wonder why are they lying about the tithe?

Is it because they are ignorant of what the Bible says about tithes, or is it because they know the truth but are rebellious and greedy? In either case, once you know truth, you have a responsibility to walk in that truth.
When realization sinks in, you have two options.

1. You can continue to live the lie
2. You can begin to walk in truth

I chose to walk in truth.

Something to consider…

God cannot lie. Nor is God in a lie. His church is built upon the truths written and spoken by the apostles and prophets in His word; Jesus Christ Himself being the Chief Cornerstone. A church built on lies may as well close its doors. God is not in such a church.

Our giving should not be dictated by lies and deceit. Our giving should only be dictated by the love we have for God and for our neighbor.

You’re Doing It All Wrong!
by Ronald W Robey
( written July 26, 2021)


In the Bible, God tells us WHAT His required tithe are to consist of. (see Leviticus 27:30,32; Deuteronomy 12:17)

In the Bible God tells us WHO is required to tithe. (see Leviticus 27:30-34; Numbers 18:26)

In the Bible, God tells us WHO is to receive tithes. (see Numbers 18: 21-26; Deuteronomy 14:27-29; 26:12-17)

In the Bible, God tells us HOW His required tithe is to be observed. (see Numbers 18:21-31; Nehemiah 10:37-38)

In the Bible, God tells us WHERE tithes are to be observed. (see Deuteronomy 12:10-11; 2 Chronicles 6:5-6)

In the Bible, God tells us WHO He requires to tithe to the House of God. (see Numbers 18:26-31; Nehemiah 10:37-38)

In the Bible, God tells us WHEN His required tithes are to be observed. (see Deuteronomy 14:22-26,28-29; 26:12-17)

In the Bible, God tells us WHY tithes are to be observed. (see Numbers 18:21-23; Deuteronomy 14:22-23)

Sadly, while the what’s; who’s; how’s; where’s; when’s; and why’s concerning God’s commamnded tithes are carried to the pulpits in many religious institutions around the world, they never reach the ears of the members of the congregation’s in these religious institutions.

Instead, the pastor will open the Book that contains the what’s; who’s; how’s; where’s; when’s; and why’s of God’s commanded tithe and then preach an entirely different tithe that is to be observed by an entirely different people in an entirely different location in an entirely different manner.

And then they have the audacity to tell the members of their congregations that it is “God’s tithe” they are preaching.

Wake up saints…you’re doing it all wrong. And therefore God doesn’t even recognize your “obedience to tithing” as obedience to Him.

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

If He Contradicts the Bible…He’s Lying!
by Ronald W Robey
(written July 21, 2021)

There is a way to tell if a pastor is lying to his congregation when he preaches a tithe sermon.

1. If the pastor teaches that God requires monetary tithes, he contradicts Leviticus 27:30,32 & Deuteronomy 12:17.

2. If a pastor preaches that God requires the saved in Christ to tithe, he contradicts Leviticus 27:34; Psalms 147:19-20; & Acts 15:28-29.

3. If a pastor preaches that God requires him to take tithes from his congregation, he contradicts Numbers 18:21 & Psalms 147:19-20.

4. If a pastor teaches that God requires the congregation to bring tithes to the House of God, he contradicts Numbers 18:21-23 & Nehemiah 10:29,37-38.

5. If a pastor that lives outside of the land of Canaan preaches that tithes are to be brought to his local church, he contradicts Deuteronomy 12:10-11.

6. If a pastor preaches that the congregation is not to eat their tithes, he contradicts his own statement that tithes are money.

7. If a pastor preaches that tithes and firstfruits are the same, he contradicts Nehemiah 10:29,37-38.

8. If a pastor preaches that Malachi 3:10 is instruction for the congregation of the new covenant Body of Believers in Christ Jesus to tithe, he contradicts Malachi 1:1; 2:1; & 3:6.

9. If a pastor preaches that Matthew 23:23 & Luke 11:42 say that God requires monetary tithes, he contradicts the words of Jesus Christ in Matthew 23:23 & Luke 11:42.

10. If a pastor teaches that Matthew 23:23 & Luke 11:42 are verses that prove Chrstians are to tithe, he contradicts the words of Jesus Chirst in Matthew 23:23 & Luke 11:42.

11. If a pastor preaches that Luke 18:9 is saying that we are required to tithe our money, he is contradicting Leviticus 27:30, Deuteronomy 12:17, Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:42; & Luke 9.

12. If a pastor teaches that Hebrews 7:8 says that the saved in Christ are requried to tithe their money, he contradicts the context, i.e Hebrews 7:5-9.

How do you know if a pastor is lying? If he contradicts the Bible…

…he’s lying!.

It Was Impossible!
by Ronald W Robey
(written July 19, 2021)

Under the Law, it was impossible for Gentiles to tithe to God..

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.

In Leviticus 27:30 God said that the tithe of the land is His. Verse 34 of this same chapter tells us that the command to tithe was given to the children of Israel.

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

In Deuteronomy 12:10-11 we read that the place to tithe is located in the land of Canaan. Therefore, when God said that the tithe of the land is His in Leviticus 27:30, He was specifically referring to the land of Canaan.
He was not speaking of the entire 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:
One may argie, “But Exodus 12:49 says, ‘One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.’ Therefore tithing is not just for Israelites to observe, but for Gentiles also.”

Not so fast…

The children of Israel inherited the land of Canaan, and the tithe was to come from the agriculture that the land produced. Gentiles owned no part of the land. This begs the question…

What would Gentiles tithe, if they owned no land on which to raise/breed the items that God said were to be tithed?

The answer, of course, is they could not tithe at all. So the argument that so many Gentiles give, “God never told us to stop tithing” fails miserably. Gentiles could not tithe, so why would God tell them to stop doing what they were not doing to begin with?

It was impossible for Gentiles to even obey God’s command to tithe.

Yes, But Is it Working God’s Way?
by Ronald W Robey
(written July 01, 2021)

You say tithe is working for you, and you will continue to tithe? Tithe may be working for you, but if it is not working in the manner God said it will work, you must not be tithing in the manner God said to tithe.
.
Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.Malachi 3:11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.Malachi 3:12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

Question: Has God opened the windows of Heaven and poured out a blessing that was so large that you had absolutely no room in your house or in your barn to contain that blessing as He promised?

Question: Has God truly rebuked the devourer, so that your gardens were not damaged by insects as He promised?
Question: Has He kept the fruit in your gardens from falling off the vine prematurely as He promised?

Question: Do all nations of the world call your nation blessed as He promised?

Question: Is your land a delightsome land as He promised?

If not, then God has not bestowed upon you the promises He gave in Malachi 3:10-12 and you must not be tithing in the manner God commanded.

Might want to Study the Scriptures diligently to see what exactly God said concerning

a) who He required to tithe
b) who He said the tithe is to be given to
c) what He said His tithe is to consist of
d) where He said His tithe is to be taken
e) who He said is required to tithe to the House of God

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

If you offend in just one point of God’s tithe ordinance, you are guilty of not tithing at all. You must keep all the commands written in the ordinance in order to experience the blessings promised for observing the ordinance.

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?
