Thread: More about tithing

    What’s the real deal behind tithing and why is a right revelation of it so important? In this compelling message preached at Hillsong London, Joseph Prince shows you from the Scriptures what it means to tithe under the high priesthood of Jesus and how tithing is God’s system to keep you and your future generations provided for. Discover the heart with which God wants us to tithe, and how this practice breaks the hold of money on our lives. As you begin to tithe out of revelation and not obligation, get ready for disproportionate influence and blessings that show God’s power in your life!

    Hebrews 5:6-14 - The truths about Melchizedek are for mature people.

    "As He also says in another place: “You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek”; who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear, though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, called by God as High Priest “according to the order of Melchizedek,” of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil." (Hebrews 5:6-14 NKJV)

    Hebrews 7:1-10 - God doesn't need our money. He owns heaven and earth, and all the cattle on a thousand hills. We are not obliged to give the tithe. Abraham gave the tithe because he recognised how great Melchizedek is. We tithe because we recognise how great Jesus is! When we tithe, it is Jesus who receives our tithe! Holy Communion is to proclaim Jesus's death. When we tithe, we proclaim that Jesus lives! When we tithe, we are affecting generations. Our tithing blesses our succeeding generations! Even if our descendants don't believe in Jesus, they will still enjoy the blessings thanks to the tithes given by the ancestors. It is no coincidence that some of the most wealthy and inventive people are Jews - some examples are Mark Zuckerberg who founded FaceBook; MGM, Universal Studios are also founded by Jews.

    Don't you just love it when someone's answer is to cut and paste other people's interpretations of the Word instead of actually going to the Word!

    Well, I sure as heck didn't actually "know" that Jesus lives. I missed that tithing is related to communion, communion is related to Jesus being alive.

    I wonder if the Iranian and Chinese Christians being put in jail and cannot possibly tithe, if they are really in communion with Jesus, because you know....they sure as heck can't tithe.

    The stuff people say....

    We cannot build sound doctrine based on taking scriptures out of context. Who was being spoken to, what was being said, and why was it being said to them. The New Covenant had not yet been instituted. Everything prior to the death and resurrection of Jesus was Old Covenant.
    When building sound church doctrine we must look at what Jesus taught, and how His disciples/apostles reacted to what He said. We must also look at what they taught to the NT church. Which brings us to the point that tithing was not taught in any of the epistles to the church. What was taught was NT giving. That nobody in the congregation should be without what they have NEED of. They all shared with each other.
    Ezekiel, sir, I don't wish to engage in the tithing debate, but I am curious about the point you made above.

    I have always believed that the words that Jesus spoke: his commandments, his teachings, the parables, the Sermon on the Mount, etc. apply to all Christians, for all time.

    Are you prepared to keep the entire law of Moses from beginning to end, the way the lawteachers and Pharisees of 30 AD taught it ? Please obey your master without question :

    Mat 23:1 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples:
    2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat.
    3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you.

    And no, context does not matter. Jesus commanded it, now do it.
