    • Why we pay Tithe?

      Why we pay Tithe?

      1. It belongs to God.
      2. It is Holy.
      3. Because we love Him.
      4. We Obey God's commandments.
      5. God appointed Jesus to receive Tithe.
      6. There is no lacking in God's House
      7.We may receive bountiful blessings.
      8. There is no lacking in servant of God's life.


      • AMEN!!


        • 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.


          • Amen! I don't tithe out of legalism or some kind of duty, but out of honor to my Heavenly Father who gives me the ability to earn what I receive!


            • I don't know that I would consider anything about tithing to be legalism per se, it's about obeying the Lord and he has commanded that we give to the Lord what is the Lord's Matthew 2:21, Hebrews 7:1-12 and I think the "10%" stems from verses 2 & 4 where Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils to Melchisedec the king of Salem. Remember that the "tithe" or giving goes to the Church for a variety of reasons. Usually the Church doesn't expect anything from those that are not members, tithing or giving is usually referring to the members and it goes to support the teaching of the Lord's Word, it goes to missionary programs so the Gospel can get out, it goes to youth programs, etc....even if the Bible didn't instruct us to give, I would STILL give to help support the work of my Church, the reaching out of my Church.


              • The Lord would rather you give ten cents happily than ten percent grudgingly.


                • From what I understand, everything belongs to God, and as we, in the Church age, are not under the OT Law, we should realize that we (to use a popular saying) cannot out give God.

                  But, in the Scripture, the Lord has only required 10% as belonging to HIM. Anything above that is an offering. BUT, I feel, if any of this is given out of "obligation" or "for earthly acknowledgment" and not given out of gratitude, I wonder how much it will mean to God?
                  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

                  Psalms 2:2-4a

                      • Tithing Info needed

                        Hello all,

                        My wife and I are not currently with a church so we try to tithe online. We have given to Christian Radio stations and John Hagee Ministries in the past. With JHM, We have given to the Exodus program.

                        My question is, are there any other Jewish programs that I can tithe online to? If not I will go with the Exodus program again.


                        • Hi GodsForgiven,

                          The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability is a good place to search for responsible ministries. You can search by member name, state or ministry type. For instance, the below link is from searching their list under "Messianic, Jewish Ministry"


                          Thank you, Mary Rae, for your lovely picture!

                          "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21
