According to 1 Peter 3 : 15, we are highly advised to be scripturally loaded and braced up at all time to elucidate, validate and defend Christocentric Doctrine (Gospel of Christ) to everyone who asks you to account for your teaching cum hope in Christ. The reason why I want to throw light on this issue now is because the greatest battle in this end time, is the battle between the Truth and Deception. Jesus said in Luke 17: 26 as it was in time of Noah so it will be also in the time, Jesus will materialize on earth again, which means that exactly what was seen in Noah’s time will also be seen in our time. So, for better understanding according to 2 Peter 2: 4 – 6, only Eight People were saved in Noah’s time when the world was destroyed by flood. By biblical historians and scholars, more than three billion people perished in the flood. Similar thing in Noah’s time is urgently about to repeat itself in our time, which is in alignment with Luke 17:26.

No wonder! Bible says MANY PEOPLE will try very hard to enter into Kingdom of Heaven but they will never enter there according to Luke 13: 24.

The Truth of the matter is that only the Gospel of Christ gives you such access into Salvation, Spiritual illumination, service To God, Communion with Holy Spirit (Spirit of Christ), utter Emancipation and Paradise – (Romans 1: 9, 16, 17; Luke 4:18; Galatians 1: 6 – 9; 2 Corinthians 11: 4, 14; 2 John 1: 9 – 11; 2 Thessalonians 1: 7 – 9). The argument is that, Tithing is it validated and justifiable in New Testament because Jesus Christ obtained the Ministry of Mediation of the New Covenant (Hebrew 8: 6 – 8; Hebrew 9: 15 – 17) likewise we received the Ministry of the New Covenant / New Testament (2 Corinthians 3: 6, 14 – 16). This is the reason why we are loftily advised according to 2 Timothy 2: 15 to study intensively so that we will attract Divine Endorsement cum Autograph, Grounded Canonical knowledge Devoid of illogicality, and Rightful categorization And Application of Eternal Truth.

The TRUTH is that we have two types of Tithing, but before I demystify this recent heat – up puzzle in Christendom, I want you to open up your spirit – man (Inward Man) to Holy Spirit for in – depth divine imbibition and understanding. The question is that, did Jesus condemn Tithing, the answer is capital NO. You may be asking how do I arrive to this conclusion. Ok, Matthew 23: 23 contextually proved beyond any reasonable doubt that, there is a degree of significance and also the issue of Tithe, Justice, Mercy and Faith are mandatory sacrifices. In terms of weightier matters like Justice, Mercy and Faith are named into this category, but the whole truth in Matthew 23: 23 is that Tithe of Mint and Anise and Cummin which is called OTHER(S) must be done along side Justice, Mercy and Faith. In John 14: 15, Jesus said if you love Christ, keep His Commandments. So Jesus’ Commandments in Matthew 23: 23, Tithe, Justice, Mercy and faith are mandatory sacrifices, so keep them as Believers. Some people may now say that the Disciples of Christ in His day did not pay Tithe, the answer is capital YES but they obeyed Apostolic Doctrine that Required Believers to Bring All their Money Under The Control Of the Apostles. So, now choose one but in the absence of not choosing any, this depicts you are not a Believer, SIMPLE, because the two are in the light of New Testament Order. The Truth is that Christianity is not humanly institutionalized organization but divinely orchestrated lifestyle and nature of God in a man instigated only by the Gospel of Christ Romans 1: 16; 1 John 4: 11 – 13.

TYPES OF TITHING

Tithe is the tenth part of the increase arising from the profits made by you.

  • TITHING ACCORDING TO LAW: is based on levitical priesthood, in this case, sons of Levi have a commandment to receive Tithe from the people (Brethren) according to the law – Hebrew 7: 5, 11, 12. Christians are not under this type of Tithing now. This is how, so many people see Tithing, that is from Old Testament Perspective , which is the reason of all these Unresolved Argument everywhere due to scriptural
  • TITHING ACCORDING TO THE GRACE: is based on Melchizedek Priesthood, in this case, Spiritual Believers in Christ (Sons of Abraham) not lukewarm Christians that will be vomited by Christ at last, give their Tithes directly to Jesus Christ through His Human Representative Leaders on earth – Ephesians 4: 11 – 13; Revelation 3: 15 – 17. Abraham received the Gospel of Christ Spiritually 2, 000 years ago before the Incarnation and Materialization of Jesus Christ on  earth (Galatians 3: 8, 9, 29, 3; John 8: 58; Revelation 13: 8). Tithe under The Grace existed before Tithe under The Law and Abraham, father of faith paid this Type of Tithing under The Grace to Melchizedek which is like the son of God- Jesus Christ. This is a Prophetic Symbolism that Spiritual Believer (in this case, Abraham while in our case, Christians, Sons of Abraham) pays Tithe to King of Peace who lives in Eternity of the Eternities, Melchizedek (in our cases, Jesus Christ, no wonder in Hebrew 5: 5, 9, 10, Jesus Christ is a High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek) – Hebrew 7: 1 – 12, 15; 1 Corinthians 16: 1, 2.

Tithe according to the law was changed based on the change of former priesthood as showed in Hebrew 7: 11 – 12 and another one In The Likeness of Melchizedek (Abrahamic Tithe Pattern – Tithe According to Grace; Gospel of Christ received by Abraham which is prevalent today – Galatians 3: 8, 9, 29) Arises, that is The Perfect Order with its characteristics and commandments – Six Foundational Immutable Principles of Christ (Hebrew 6: 1, 2) Tithe According To Grace and other Teachings justifiable by the Gospel of Christ – Hebrew 7: 1, 4, 5, 11,12,15, 16; Matthew 23: 23; John 14: 15. Abraham existed 2, 000 years ago before Physical Appearance of Jesus on Earth based on Galatians 3: 8, 9, 29 and He received the Gospel of Christ.

So based on This Gospel of Christ, Abraham:

  • Paid Tithe – Genesis 14: 18 – 20; Hebrew 7: 1 – 5.
  • Ate Holy Communion – Genesis 14: 18, 19; 1 Corinthians 11: 24 – 26.
  • Ananias and Sapphris died woefully as a result of not submitting 100% of money gained from the sale of their plot of land to the Apostles as demanded by Apostolic Doctrine– Acts of Apostles 5: 1 – 11 (This one is Apostolic Doctrine)

SUMMARY: the choice is yours. You are only left with two options in New Testament: Tithe According to Grace or Apostolic Doctrine. I f actually you are a True Born Again Christian, you must practice one of them because bible said in John 14: 15, if you love Jesus Christ obey his commandment either Tithing According To Grace or Apostolic Doctrine. According to 1Corth16:22, if you do not love Jesus Christ, you will be ACCURSED.

Christianity is all about Spirituality which is rooted in Christocentrism. That is the rationale behind Romans 8: 1, 9, 14 that those Believers, that are led by the Living Spirit of God are the sons of God (Spiritually Matured Believers) because of the indwelling of the Spirit of Christ which on quotidian basis ensures our divine voyage, chinwag, direction and extrication from satanically instigated aberration from God’s word – John 10: 4, 5, 14, 27, 28; Acts 22: 14.  In the same vein, in my Encounter with the Lord in 2012 through heavenly Revelation, I was vehemently instructed and warned to be paying my TITHE.
