                        “Tithing Revised” by Rev Essie Scott

Good Morning, Good Afternoon and/or Good Evening wherever you are. I pray that your day is blessed and if it doesn’t seem to be going that way…..Bless it yourself! God lives in you. Today the topic is “Tithing Revised.” Now years ago, I felt a lot different than I have been feeling lately. I have to admit that, because of greedy preachers and abusers of the Word, I had become hard-hearted about tithing and even lost some so-called “friends” over the topic. I didn’t absolutely hate tithing, no, but I was morbid about the way that ministers stood in the pulpit and instilled fear about tithing upon all who listened. God is not pleased with the fear-mongering going on in His pulpit today. And no, God is not going to strike you and your household with illnesses or flatten your tires, but He will give you awesome favor if you bless His Kingdom. I have a myriad of notes here so hang in there with me. There may be a few that you will have to write down and study later ok? So get your Swords, a drink and a snack, and maybe a tablet and pen and sit back and I will delve into this subject, right after this.

(SONG: Dulcimer- Give Thanks.)

(Prayer) Thank you Father for rising us up this morning and being Who you are in our lives. You are the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last. We worship, praise and adore you Father. Jesus said “The Father and I are One” and we are saying that today and everyday to remind the enemy that we are nothing to contend with in Jesus name. We are the righteousness of God, the Children of the Most High. Nothing by any means shall hurt us. By your stripes Jesus we’ve actually BEEN healed. We thank you for that. In Jesus name, I speak peace, love and joy into the hearts and households of those who come on to listen to the Word. Psalm 23, we shall want for NO THING! Use me Holy Spirit to teach the correct way and show people that you bless others by using our hands. We don’t want to be stingy Christians or those with the poor victim mentality. Forgive us for being hard-hearted against allowing you to use our hands and time. Father we pray for those who may be considering suicide which is what you showed me in my dream last night. To that person who may be listening right now, know that God hears you and is answering your prayers. Hold on to God’s unchanging hand. Wait for another day, it may contain your answer. In Jesus name, amen.

{SERMON}

God shows Abram the stars and makes him Father of many.
Gen 15:5  And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
Gen 15:6  And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

I’ll start out with “The Priestly Order of Melchizedek”
Melchizedek was a Priest without mother or father, beginning nor end and is said to be a pre-incarnate Christ of which Abraham tithed a tenth to even before it was required to do so. He showed up out of nowhere to bless Abraham. Abraham knew something. Abraham had faith and trusted God. Melchizedek meets Abraham on his return from battle, gives him bread and wine (which has been interpreted by some Christian scholars as a precursor of Communion, and blesses Abraham in the name of “God Most High” (in Hebrew El ʿElyon). In return, Abraham gives him a tithe of the booty.
Melchizedek means “My King Is [the god] Sedek” or “My King Is Righteousness” (the meaning of the similar Hebrew cognate). Salem, of which he is said to be king, is very probably Jerusalem. Psalm 76:2 refers to Salem in a way that implies that it is synonymous with Jerusalem, and the reference in Gen. 14:17 to “the King’s Valley” further confirms this identification. The god whom Melchizedek serves as priest is “El ʿElyon.”
Abram Blessed by Melchizedek
Gen 14:17  And the king of Salem went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king’s dale.
Gen 14:18  And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
Gen 14:19  And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
Gen 14:20  And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
Gen 14:21  And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.
Gen 14:22  And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,
Gen 14:23  That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
Gen 14:24  Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.


Heb 7:1  For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
Heb 7:2  To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
Heb 7:3  Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
Heb 7:4  Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
Heb 7:5  And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:
Heb 7:6  But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.
Heb 7:7  And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.
Heb 7:8  And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.
Heb 7:9  And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
Heb 7:10  For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.

Jesus Compared to Melchizedek
Heb 7:11  If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron? {If the Law was so great, what need would we have for Jesus?}
Heb 7:12  For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
Heb 7:13  For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
Heb 7:14  For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
Heb 7:15  And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
Heb 7:16  Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
Heb 7:17  For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Tithing defined in the religious sense is a tenth, the tenth part. Hebrew word being “Ma’ asar” . “Asar” – a prime root word, ten, to tithe, take or give a tenth. Greek, “Apodekatoo” to tithe, as a debtor or creditor. “Apo” means off or away. “Dekatoo” means to tithe, to give, take a tenth. “Dekate” a tenth. Even the word “Decade” means 10 years. In Genesis 28:22 we see that Jacob gave a tenth. The Hebrew word used is “asar” which means to tithe. Now there is a difference between tithing, offering, giving and alms. Yes, God wants us to give but not as though you belong to the local Lodge or a club. He wants you to give out of your heart. Tis better to give than to receive. Another proverb: Don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give it away and bless somebody before the devil tries to stop you!!! God loves a cheerful GIVER. Luke 12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Giving to ministries gives Eternal results. 1Co 9:9  For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? You are supposed to give where you are spiritually fed and see that others are fed, encouraged and challenged. It provides spiritual nourishment. You are actually giving directly to God. He is the one who will multiply the seed. 2 Cor 9:6 Sow sparingly reap that way. Sow generously, you reap that way.
1Co 9:10  Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
1Co 9:11  If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?

Jesus commanded us to:

Luk 10:7  And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
Luk 10:8  And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
Luk 10:9  And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

Abuse of the calling to tithe:

Pastors all over the World immediately go to Malachi 3:10 and 11 when they describe tithing to their congregants which says: 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.
Mal 3:11  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, saith the LORD of hosts.
Mal 3:12  And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

What many folks don’t realize is that before Malachi 3, God speaks to Pastors/Leaders/Priests in Malachi 1 and 2 who were stealing from the tithes, but you barely if not rarely hear any preaching out of those chapters. And some of you on today may have never even realized that Malachi 2 was dedicated to gangster Priests. Yes, it speaks of all of us, but these passages are mainly for those who were called after the order of Melchizadek – to stop robbing God! Check out Malachi 2 which is even titled in most of our bibles as “The Lord rebukes Priests” which reads like this:

The Lord Rebukes the Priests

Mal 2:1  And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.
Mal 2:2  If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.
Mal 2:3  Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.
Mal 2:4  And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
Mal 2:5  My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.
Mal 2:6  The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
Mal 2:7  For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
Mal 2:8  But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
Mal 2:9  Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law. (They were “do as I say” people not “do as I do” much like today. Giving the Word but not living it.)

In short… the Priests were greedy, they were stealing, robbing God. Mal 3:8  Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Here’s the catch: Where it asks “Will a man rob God?” Preachers used to throw that sentence across the pulpit like we were sinners going to Hell didn’t they? What they failed to know, study or share is the fact that those scriptures were aimed at them not necessarily the congregation. Did you know that? Did they ever explain that to you during Wednesday night bible studies?

➢➢➢😇My problem with the abuse of tithes:
For years I’ve argued the use of Malachi 3 being used by some pastors who were more worried about making their Mercedes payments instead of paying the churches bills and helping out the widows and orphans or the single parents who need to keep their water, electric or gas on. Have you ever seen churches where the Building Fund never really does build anything and the furnace and roof are 1 year of falling out and/or through? You almost have to bring an electric blanket with you on Winter Sundays because it’s so cold and the furnace only covers part of the church building. How many of you are still waiting for a new sidewalk or a new roof with your churches building fund? Or maybe even a handicap ramp so folks can come and get healed and walk back out of the church! What about the churches that charge for funerals like McDonald’s restaurant’s numbered meals? You can pay so much for the funeral but there’s more charges if you want various types of food for those who attend. It’s even more if you want a singer or instrumentalist. It’s like a Catering Business!!!!!! And God forbid that you choose pork chops and macaroni and cheese over baked chicken and greens! But yet the person in the back of the church who owes $600 for taxes to save their house before getting a Sheriff’s sale is refused because the church got an $18,000.00 carpet job done, and that person loses their home. This is a real story folks and you know what? 2 weeks later the church got flooded horribly. That person just may have been sent by God to bless that church. We’ll never know. Choose wisely.

➢➢💳$€ In Malachi 2, the people were tithing to the Priests as they were called to do but the Priests were dipping in the Tithe for a more ‘pleasant’ lifestyle. The flesh always tries to steal from God. That’s something to think about. And get this, fleshly churches could care less about your Sheriff’s Sale, whether you have kids or not.
☑️ I love this:
In the Word, some of the people gave food, some gave money and some gave livestock but they WERE giving. There were different ways that people of different backgrounds and lifestyles were to give. Here’s something to think about, notice in the bible it doesn’t necessarily say that Jesus tithed. The Word does say that He practiced Israeli ways but the subject is not clearly brought up. Not only that, Priests enjoy the tithe. I believe that it wasn’t clearly brought up because Jesus was a Carpenter and carpenter’s didn’t tithe. Tithe was mainly money, livestock or crops.

ANYTHING that you can give to the body of Christ or your local church or minister helps. It’s not always money but according to the Word, Money does answer all things. Ecc 10:19  A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things. It allows your Pastor to make up their mind what they want to fix, help or feed with the offerings and tithes.

This is where the rubber meets the road folks:

God created the Heavens and the Earth. Man created money. God doesn’t need our self-created cash BUT your fellow Christian and/or leader in Christ does. God uses people to bless people!!!!! Barbra Streisand had a point when she sang “People who need people are the luckiest (blessed) people in the World.” And no ‘luck’ does not always refer to “Luc-ifer” but is meant to be ‘blessings’ as well. It’s all in the heart and the way that you mean it.
It makes sense that our bodies need food. Pastors and the Priests cannot eat money, but they surely can eat with the money. Amen? Try to give them more than just money though. That can be considered as a tithe. If they need something for their ministry, go into your QVC, Fingerhut, Amazon, Walmart, or Kohl’s account and get it for them! Have it sent to their address or the church! Send them a swivel chair for their office, a beautiful bible, Strongs concordance, pen and pencil set, a copier for their office or something! Amen? You can give them your time as well. Volunteer to help at the church or pay a bill for them. Bring in some food to give away or clothing. Clean the bathroom or sweep the floor sometimes. Jehovah Jireh provides ALL not just money.

Since I began to understand the tithe, I’ve been blessed to the fullest. As David said, “I shall not want.” It comes to me in bits and pieces and I like it like that. I can see God in it. There is always a ram in the bush. No one can say that if it weren’t for them, Rev Essie wouldn’t have a dime. God sees to that. God is good. It comes from the North, South, East and West. I never know where my next blessing will come from! That is real folks. Something has been happening to me. I can testify about that. It can happen to you as well if you just open your heart and start tithing and/or giving. Tithing is NOT a hoax. Tithing is real. And it surpasses magic by a long shot. No voodoo doll or spell will bring anything to you like the blessings of tithing can! Praise Jesus! That’s temporary stuff, God’s blessings are eternal. God is good!

Don’t boast about it:

Giving to the Needy
Mat 6:1  Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
Mat 6:2  Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Mat 6:3  But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
Mat 6:4  That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Rewards of tithing/giving:
Mat 25:34  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
Mat 25:35  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Mat 25:36  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Mat 25:37  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
Mat 25:38  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Mat 25:39  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
Mat 25:40  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

We give/tithe because it is the Lord’s. Lev 27:30 “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s: it is holy unto the Lord. And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord. He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy: it shall not be redeemed. These are the commandments which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in Mount Sinai.”

  1. Reasons for tithing or giving, and I must add that tithing is NOT essential to your salvation. You will NOT go to Hell for NOT doing so. It’s helps and although some preachers make it seem this way but, it is not necessary in order to be saved. You will not be cursed and your car won’t shut down, your tires won’t go flat, your loved ones won’t get sick and you will not get Cancer for not tithing much to the devil’s (and his advocates chagrin.) But if you do make the decision to tithe, your blessings will rain back down upon you. Devils can’t stop the blessings that have been brought about by tithing. When you obey God’s commandments, demons have to step back and bow to your requests. I have to study up on it but I do not remember seeing anything about Daniel tithing. He prayed 3 times a day but he was under enemy kings (more than one) and I don’t know if he tithed to them or not. Maybe his service to them, I don’t know. It took 21 days to get his answer because the “Prince of Persia” (demon) battled the Angel who was to deliver the answer to Daniel. Tithing SURPASSES the 21 day limit. You don’t always have to wait. God said that He will POUR OUT YOUR BLESSINGS in Malachi 3:10. There are only ⅓ demons around us. There aren’t enough to stop God’s Rain, amen? God’s Rain + ⅔ angels brings about Victory!
    To spread the gospel, this is the biggest reason. Mark 16:15. Preach and teach to every creature. Matthew 28:20. To support God’s work and His ministers. Deut 12:19, 1 Cor 9:7-14, Phil 4:14-16. Please read those scriptures.
    Numbers 18:20-21 And the Lord spake unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance in their land, neither shalt thou have any part among them: I am thy part and thine inheritance among the children of Israel. 21 And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation. (No one can say that if it wants for them, the Pastor would have nothing. God is better than Allstate. (Insurance.)
    Watch what happens when your read it from a Jewish perspective which is the ‘original’ way to read it, the Complete Jewish Bible by David Stern says:
    “You are not to have an inheritance or portion in their land: I am your portion and inheritance among the people of Israel. To the descendants of Levi I have given the entire tenth of the “produce” collected in Israel. It is their inheritance in payment for the service they render in the tent of meeting.”
    There is a difference between money and produce. Tithing is not always money. We have to get this straight or the church will miss it’s blessings. Do you remember when people used to invite the preacher over for dinner and he’d enjoy it, laugh, talk and then go home satisfied? That’s a type of tithing. Food.
    Other places the tithe (mint, anise, and cummin is mentioned: Matthew 23:23, Luke 11:42
    Places where the tenth is mentioned: Hebrews 7:1-4
    Jacob mentioned giving a tenth in Genesis 28:20-22
    Mat 12:35  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
  2. Why do we tithe?
    We give/tithe because it is the Lord’s. Lev 27:30 “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s: it is holy unto the Lord. And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord. He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy: it shall not be redeemed. These are the commandments which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in Mount Sinai.” NOTE: NOT money but flock. Tithing is MORE THAN 💵💸💲
    Deuteronomy 14:22-23 “Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place His name there, the tithe of thy corn, wine and oil, the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.” (Give respect where respect is due.)
    Proverbs 3:9 “Honor the LORD with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase.” (NOT just money.)
    When and whatever you decide to tithe, God will honor it. Below are some blessings of tithing/giving:
    a. You will be blessed in all that you do. Deut 12:6-7 and Deut. 14:28-29.
b. Barns will be full. Prov 3:9-10
c. It shall be returned to you. Eccl 11:1 and Luke 6:38
d. Malachai 3….There will be meat in God’s house, the windows of Heaven will be open unto you and God will pour you out a blessing that you won’t have room to receive it. (Put others first and God will see it and bless you.)
    e. God will rebuke the devourer, he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground. 6. All nations shall call you blessed. Your light will shine. People will see that you are an obedient and loving Child of God.
f. Ye shall be a delightsome land.
  3. Where should you tithe/give?
    Numbers 18:21 To the minister of God. Deut 12:5-6 to the church/fellowship that God placed you in. Into the storehouse where you are being fed. Wherever you are receiving Good Word, fertile seed. Where the Word of God is being taught and where God is ministering through His minister. Some people give all of their attention to one minister but out of a manipulative spirit they give to another just to get attention and they attempt to manipulate their ministries. Example: The little old lady who gives so much to the church that she can tell the Pastor when to wind it up, with a simple double cough and a stare. Manipulation of tithing. Witchcraft at it’s finest form.
  4. Who should pay tithes?
    Everyone – Deut 12:6, 14:1, 22.
    Deu 12:6  And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks:
    Deu 12:7  And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.
    Paying of tithes is a principle of God, so therefore this same principle can be and should be applied to the church, minister or ministry.
    There is a minister within New Birth Ministries who was online once and saw good cans of food that she liked. The Lord laid it on her heart to send boxes and boxes of canned food and other staples to the ministers of NB. It was such a blessing and it was right on time. God is good. It was such a blessing to open the boxes and see all of that canned food! God bless her.
  5. Have a correct attitude.
    Without a correct attitude in the giving of your tithe, you will not receive any of the blessings. Give willingly – 2 Cor 8:12. Ex 25:2, Deut 12:6 (Not under bondage), 1 Chron 29:9.
Give freely – Matt 10:8
Not grudgingly – “Lupe” sadness, grief, grievous, heaviness, sorrow.
    Cheerful – “hilaios” see the word “hilarious” there? Merry. Prompt. Willing. Cheerful.
Not of necessity – Give not as under the law as in “I have to”. Give freely, cheerfully as having a spirit of giving. “I want to.” Deu 12:6  And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks: Deu 12:7  And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.
  6. Ways to give…..
    Give faithfully. 2 Chron 31:11-12, Matt 25:23
Not out of habit. Matt 23:23
Give to God, you are not just giving to a church or a preacher. Have God in your heart when you give. Don’t worry about what he/she does with it. God knows your intentions and sees your faithfulness. Give in secret. Matt 6:1-4
Not prideful or boastful. Luke 18:9-14
In faith. Malachi 3:10 Prove God. He’s waiting for you to do so. He will NOT let you down. Come to the point where we are willing to give all. Luke 14:33.
    One thing is for sure, Jesus set us all free from the bondage of the Law and put us in His Grace as of now. Hebrews 7:11-12 tells us that if the Levitical Priesthood was all that and a bag of chips we wouldn’t have needed Jesus to come straighten things out and give a way of escape. Verse 12 specifically states that “if the priesthood being CHANGED there is made of necessity a change also of the law.”
    Simply put, and I will use a term that some preachers don’t like but as you can see, it’s in your bible……JESUS ‘CHANGED’ THE LAW.
    Tithe if you can my friend, it’s a beautiful thing to do and you will receive many blessing from your Father in Heaven for doing so and being obedient for obedience is greater than sacrifice. If you feel that you can’t, that is according to your faith my friend. God is not in the Hell-sending business. Jesus paid the price, He would appreciate your helping others but He really doesn’t need your money. He wants YOU.

Are you saved? Now is the time to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. With all that is going on around the world, you need a friend. Jesus can be that special friend if you allow Him into your life. He is your helper and His Holy Spirit is your Comforter.
If you are not saved, just repeat the Romans Road after me: Say “Jesus, I repent of my sins, I am so sorry Lord. I believe that you died on the cross and rose 3 days later from the dead, just for me and I accept what you have done, I accept you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus, amen.” Now go find a bible believing, Holy Ghost filled church and learn of Him, it’s never too late. Your new life starts now. All old things are gone away. God throws them as far as the East if from the West. Now….go live, laugh and love! 
Num 6:24  The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25  The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26  The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
Thank you for coming on today and I pray that your week goes by Victoriously! 
Rev Essie signing off! God bless and have a great day!
