Doctrine of Tithing has been Abolished

January 5, 2014

Malachi 3:10-12 was abolished along with the Mosaic Law!

Most preachers teach that tithing is a NT practice, and most don’t understand the Mosaic Law or the Law of tithing or who it was designed for. And it wasn’t even money that was tithed! Can someone eat money? According to biblical tithing, you could BUY back your own tithes from the priests. (See Lev 27:31)

Common sense should tell preachers that it doesn’t make sense for someone to BUY back their own money. It was talking about AGRICULTURE not money.

Those that preach tithing don’t understand tithing, but they are quick to pronounce a curse on God’s people with an unbiblical curse that is NOT found anywhere in the New Testament.

Is the Messiah’s Bride (the church) cursed with a curse? What curse is Malachi 3 talking about? Could it be the curse of the LAW? Absolutely!

Many preachers today have the guts to call God’s people who don’t believe in tithing, “God robbers,” and  “cursed with a curse,” but they don’t even understand Malachi 3 themselves. But in their greed and hunger for your money, they love to quote it.

(Mal 3:8-11) Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me. But you say, Wherein have we robbed You? In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse: for you have robbed Me, even this whole nation. Bring you all the tithes into THE STOREHOUSE, that there may be MEAT IN MY HOUSE, and prove Me now herewith, says 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. 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, says the LORD of hosts. (Mal. 3:8-11)

This is NOT talking about MONEY! The “storehouse” (a room in the temple) was filled with FOOD. I would like to know who is crazy enough to eat money? Who thinks money is MEAT? Who has eaten a bag full of nickels? What does God mean He would open up the windows of heaven and pour out a
blessing? Simple! He would send down RAIN. What is the devourer? Simple! The locust! God
told Israel that He would rebuke the devourer that he shall not destroy the fruits of their
GROUND, not the fruits of their wallet or their Old Testament check books!
Below is a real cross-reference of Malachi 3:10-12 and how that the “blessings” and “curses”
are the blessings and curses of the Law of Moses mentioned in Deuteronomy 28.

(Mal. 3:10-12)
Bring you all the tithes into THE STOREHOUSE, that there may be meat in My house, and
prove Me now herewith, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not OPEN YOU THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN, AND POUR YOU OUT A BLESSING [Deut. 28:12], that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke THE DEVOURER [Deut. 28:38] for your sakes, and HE SHALL NOT DESTROY THE FRUITS OF YOUR GROUND [Deut. 28:42]; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before  the time in thefield, saith the LORD of hosts. And ALL NATIONS SHALL CALL YOU BLESSED
[Deut. 28:8] for YOU SHALL BE A DELIGHTSOME LAND [Deut. 28:4], says the LORD of hosts.
