Freedom of Giving

Today’s Tithes are not the tithing system of the Bible, we must be free financially, we must have faith with works to lead to the goal of financially independence, and the Lord wants us to be free up and to be free from the bondage of tithing and have the freedom of giving. –(Matt. 15:3)

The Tithing that we hear in teaching or preaching and the tithing that we have so long practice has no scripture foundation. Jesus and the apostles never tithe, the early church never tithe, apostle Paul never said to any believer to tithe, what Apostle Paul teach us is the power of grace giving. –(2 Cor. 8,9)

Biblical tithing was done with food, and not with money, only those who were farmers and ranchers tithe, and only those who were farmers and ranchers that lived in Israel tithe. When Abraham tithed to Melchizedek, he didn’t tithe from his own, he tithed from another, and this was not a practice for him, it was a one-time thing. When Jacob tithes it was a tithing only for him. If you say we are still under the law, then tithe according to the law. Under the covenant of Moses only those who lived in the land of Israel and only those who were farmers and ranchers and they only tithe food. In Malachi three that was the poor tithe that was giving every third year, and they only give food, and only farmers and ranchers in the land of Israel tithe. –(Lev. 27:30-34)

Biblical giving is grace giving, the Lord gives each believer grace and seed in order to give in faith, in grace, in worship, with a willing heart. You are to give according to what you have prospered and then you are to give willing, as you desire what amount to give. –(1 Cor. 16:1-2, 2 Cor. 8, 9, Phil. 4:10-20)

Freedom of giving, to give from your heart and to give willing, to allow the Holy Spirit to lead you and speak to you about giving, you are not to give in the bondage of the tithing system instead you are to giving in the freedom of the grace giving system. Yes you are to give, instead it is up to you, and you are not burden by others, you give by faith, by worship, and by the leading of the Holy Spirit. –(2 Cor. 9:7)

Tithing vs. grace giving is a reformation issue; what keeps dead churches alive, and what keeps so-called Spirit Filled churches alive is the unbiblical tithing system. If the tithing system is done away with, and the believers move from bondage to freedom in giving most dead churches will close their doors, and the churches that obey the reformation will flow and increase. –(Heb. 9:10)

What happens to those who don’t obey grace giving? All giving to God is bless, and giving is bless, but those who give in grace, grace giving will be blessed more. –(2 Cor. 9:6-8)

We are not to allow division to enter in, there are those who preach and teach tithing as Bible, we are to love them and not attack them, fellowship with all believers in Christ, fellowship begins with the New Birth and the Common Ground of all believers, and the life of the Spirit. –(1 Cor. 1:9-10)
