Increasing giving of tithe to the House of God
Note to reader: It is interesting to read the testimony of people who had gone to heaven and hell. Please do not take it as the theological replacement for bible in any context. As long as there is truth in it and consistent with biblical teaching, it is better to believe while enjoying. Being a writer for “One Man’s Vision is another’s Man illusion” I care to believe these spoken words by the authors. It is our privilege to be able to read this message because we have brothers and sisters who willingly risked their life to take the journey to Heaven and Hell in their “Transformed body” with Lord Jesus. There are people who does OBE and lost their live, of course, likely they practiced sorcery without Our Lord Jesus’ guidance.
Tithe is offering of one tenth of your produce to God. Before we talk about giving tithe to house of God, let’s talk about why it is compulsory to give.
Actually some Christian do not pay tithe at all. Here is important message Jesus said to a Servant of God who went to Heaven:-
FOURTH MESSAGE by Brani Duyon @ Efendie from Sabah, East Malaysia in May 2006: You can read the whole testimony by Clicking Choo Thomas Urgent messages
“Tell My Children, they must be obedient to give tithe and offerings. While Jesus gave this message, He said My child, look there” He showed me beautiful houses which are ready for His children. My child, these houses are ready, I prepared for all My children, that believe and are obedient to Me. “Then He showed me the houses which are not yet completed. I ask Lord, why these house are not yet completed? “Lord Jesus said My child, these houses belong to my children that not generous giving tithe and offerings. These houses will be ready and completed after My children give more tithe and offerings to My House.”
God, who is the creator of universe don’t need gold nor silver. By his words, he can create anything he want at his will.
Then why ask of God’s people to give tithe?
It is really a test of your heart.
If you do not tithe, it is because your heart is bonded to the love of money. It is very difficult for you to part with something that you love, the money. As a matter of fact, some people loved money so much that it had become an integral part of their body. The arms and hands became a dollar note; and their legs also became dollar note. We have new breed of funny man, and also their face become money face, all they talk is money money. Ask them to put offering or tithe to Church, they would said that they can’t do it! It is too painful because money had becomes part of their body. Believe me, these group of people are very willing to spent thousands of dollar for lustful enjoy over food and entertainment while being asked to give out small amount to bless someone, they will hold back because it was too painful for them to gives.
Matt 5:20 “And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”
Here is the story of a rich young man who wanted to have eternal life:-
Mattew 19:20-23 The young man said to Jesus, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?” Jesus said to him, “if you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and gave to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possesions. Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.”
Paying tithe is the test for your heart and soul, whether you have absolute obedient or not.
Disobeying God will leads one to lose his or her rights to be a resident in Kingdom of Heaven.
Once, a new Christian asked me if giving tithe is compulsory. Then, I told him that if he gave with unwilling heart, God will not accept the tithe and he might as well keep it. Remember King Saul? He kept the best Ram from Amalekites as offer to God but was rejected because he disobeyed God. God commanded him to destroy everything! Even if the offering is the best, God will not accept if you are not obedient.
All of us must understand, giving tithe is the blessing of a tenth of your produce to God but God bless you with the other 90% for you to keep. Do you agreed that Lord Jesus is our best business man of the whole universe? If you can recall the bible passage. He told the fishermen “Cast your net to the right and you will catch a multitude of fishes.” True enough, the fishermen obeyed Jesus and they caught such a multitude of fishes that the net can’t hold. In fact this is the message that moved me to be reborn again on 2nd Dec 2007. Isn’t Lord Jesus your best business partner? Where on earth can you find a business partner in this world that do most of the work for you and yet he takes only 10% for tithing while you get to keep the other 90%?
Love for God must be so extreme that other things must be a hatred when put side by side. There is no comparison! God, Our Lord Jesus had perfectly love for everyone and is not bias and it is so absolute that he gave out his own life for everyone so that all shall not perished but lived.
Got a question for you, if you have something that you hate very much, would you keep it in your heart as treasure? Definitely not!
Luke 14:26: If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters,yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
Many people would think that this bible script is very controversial such that they psychologically “tear” this part of the bible off in order not to read it. Please don’t! The writing of bible scripts has been inspired by the Holy Spirit from Genesis to Revelations. Love for God must be absolute. Putting side by side between loving God and family, because of Jesus’ extreme perfect love, all things becomes hatred. There is no comparison! Our perfection, put side by side with Jesus becomes imperfection!
Just like by the Sea of Galilee, Simon and Andrew followed Jesus, leaving his family members behind. This action was seen as hatred for the family because they chose to follow Jesus instead.
Mark 1:16-17 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishersmen. And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
Many who had loved their family very much would not followed Jesus. Understand this; we are not saying that you must not love your parents, family members or friends. And yet when put love for family side by side with Lord Jesus, it must be hatred. Love God and loving people fervently is utmost important.
Many newly reborn christians and the worst off dormant christians do not know how to co-relate God as their sovereign father. When needed answer to their problem, who would they turn to? Most likely, they will not hesitate to call someone senior then them, their leader. Lord Jesus once asked Pastor Alex Abraham (from Indonesia, Pastor of GDI with 130,000 member), “Where is my address?” He answered “Sitting on the Right hand side of throne in heaven.” Jesus said “No, that is not right, I am in you!” Many couldn’t speak to Jesus in prayer as the first person to contact when they are in trouble because they DO NOT have intimate relationship with him through the Holy Spirit. If one can’t love our Lord Jesus to the extreme, such that all things become hatred, then it is hard for one to believe that Lord Jesus will actually speak to them. They will continue to make other people their First love, the first call to their rescue. The worst off situation is that they use the easy way out and unintentionally idolize some leader. There are some success story of leader giving good guidance (those who are spirit minded) but we have raving wolfs who are operated by the Shadow of Darkness in Sheep outfit, they gives instructions that leads the individual to destruction. So, Friends, the only safe way is Jesus’ way. HE MUST BE YOUR FIRST LOVE, the first person to call when you’re in trouble. Understand this, we are not saying that you should not consult your ordained spiritual leader for certain issues. We are saying Jesus must be your first consultant. Occasionally, you will be guided by the Holy Spirit to talk to someone of your problem, thus fulfilling the Law of Christ, fellowshipping by sharing burden.
Gal 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
Certainly, I have been trying to fully understand the revelation message by Pastor Kong Hee on 28/09/2008; that “We should not be adding assets to generate profit and then increase the tithe offering.”
Det 8:6-7 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him. For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills.
The above Bible script tells us that our job is to keep the commandments of God, Our Lord Jesus. Walk his ways, and to fear him. Then God will bring you to the land of abundant.
Keeping the commandments, it appeared as easy since they are all written in Biblem but not so.
Walk his ways, and to fear Him. This seems problematic for all. How do you know which way to walk and how to fear someone whom you had not seen nor hear? Jesus said he is the way and the life. When he ascended to the throne after resurrection, he gave to us the anointing of the Holy Spirit who will teach us ALL THINGS.
John 14:16 “But the helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you All THINGS.”
So it is crystal clear. One has to be in daily walk with the Holy Spirit. He is our direct connection to God. Many Christians had grieved the Holy Spirit by not being obedient to his inner voice. If you have the Holy Spirit in you, then giving tithe is natural.
All things must be arranged by Our Lord Jesus so that you will be blessed. Below is some true story:-
The Gardener leave workplace due to hurts
I was once in this work place, just simply put as garden. The Manager, The Gardener, suddenly decided to leave for another job. I was really disturbed spiritually because every morning I came to work early and prayed for everyone from 8am to 8.30am, even empty seats were being prayed for God’s protection that all Angels shall sit on the empty chair leaving no room for the shadow of darkness to occupy. The Lord answered my prayer, the sick were healed and getting better and sales results were astoning, but I stopped the prayer for 3 days, wondering why the Gardener had to leave. I recalled once I was moved wrote a message to her “God’s Work must continue” somewhere Dec 2007. Then Lord Jesus arranged 4 persons to speak to me. With the discerning ability and God’s wisdom, it has been concluded that she was very hurt by the inaction of the people there. That is to say, that she turn the eyeballs inward to look at herself “I had done so much, and sacrifices and yet they can’t compromise with my good intention of giving a treat.” The decision to leave the Garden suddenly is due to her hurts. Then, she had a sharing with us that she had found a job with perfect number match. I don’t know why, I just felt something wrong with this statement. Then on Monday morning, while in prayer, our Holy Spirit spoke to me ‘BEWARE OF PERFECT NUMBER MATCH” As usual, I would asked 2 questions, “What do you mean, Lord? What do you want me to do?” Very often, the Holy Spirit would inspire me to write it down. Thus with this revelation, it give me the understanding that when you are hurts, you do a drastic action such as this case, changing of job. You will not be blessed because it is your action. (NOT ARRANGED BY GOD, OUR LORD JESUS.) Actions arise from hurts would birth to bad undivine happening. She gotten sick easily, I felt that she wasn’t happy at the new work place. It is good thing that she no longer works there.
Click this Perfect Number match, is it from God?
Business people venturing into market place must seek God’s wisdom and direction. Or else they could get themselves into possible trouble. They are like chasing after the wind and in the end catches nothing. Read this article Man seeking wisdom
In conclusion, love God fervently and do his Will and all these things (assets) shall be added onto you. Where, you will have abundant and you can increase the tithe. Constantly sing praise to God for his grace and glory.
Friends, many had been blessed with abundant because they are willing to be in complete obedient to the voice of our Holy Spirit. Choo Thomas was given new car and bigger house though she objected because she was already been very comfortable with what she have. We have a testimony of our church member on stage recently, that he cried because his leader advice him not to take up the$10K/month job because he would not be able to attend church oversea. He was blessed with another job in Singapore that is double blessing instead. If you have testimony of being blessed with abundant, Email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I would like to put up in this Esharing Portal, to extend the blessing to many people 24/7.
Friends, remember. DO NOT test God’s patience. The only things you are allowed to test God is tithing. Read this script:-
Mal 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.
Many like to do things according to their hearts’ desires and said that it is from God. This is like clothing oneself with garment and claim to be from God, layers after layers. God will remove any unauthorised Garment!
Read this script to understand what Garment is right with God, Two nakedness mentioned in Bible
Last Monday, 27th Oct 2008, I received this revelations that “God is transferring the wealth from the rich to the poor” So, if the riches was not approved by God, you may loose it. Those want to have abundants must have God’s wisdom and must have the ability to listen to Lord Jesus’ commandment. You try to catch fish whole day but ended up nothing much. But hearing Jesus’ voice “Cast your net to the RIGHT side of boat” you will catch a magnitude of Fishes, such that the net can’t hold. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord.
