It’s impossible for any human being on earth today to pay tithe as defined in the bible to God. Even Israelites to whom the Law was given can no longer pay tithe to God as prescribed in the Mosaic enactment.
To pretend to pay monetary tithe to God is blasphemous of the Holy Spirit who is currently building the church of Jesus Christ. No blasphemer of the Holy Spirit can be included in the resurrection and airlift of saints to heaven.
Apart from the blasphemy, the payment of monetary tithe to Almighty God activates the curse written in Gal 3:10. Nobody operating under a curse can qualify for inclusion in the rapture of the ekklesia.
You cannot pay tithe to God if you are not a Jew.
You cannot pay tithe to God if you are not ordinarily resident in the Promised Land of Israel.
You cannot pay tithe with the Tabernacle of David in ruins.
There must be a Temple dedicated to and approved of, by God.
There must be Priesthood – Aaronic priesthood & Levitical order.
There must be animal sacrificial system in place.
Tithing must follow a seven-year cycle: 1st 3 years, 2nd 3 years and 7th year of Jubilee.
There are clear provisions in the bible regarding:
- What to tithe;
- Beneficiaries of tithing;
- Where to tithe; and
- Who to receive tithe from those authorized to pay tithe.
To pay monetary tithe to God is to make a sacrifice in His name. Your money is your blood. By sacrificing a tenth of your monetary increase to God, you are saying one of two things:
1. The sacrifice made by Jesus on Calvary’s cross is of no effect.
2. The death of Jesus on the cross was a good sacrifice but not enough to give salvation to mankind.
A Christian can contract to pay tithe to a religious leader or a denomination but you can’t covenant to pay tithe to God. It attracts divine sanction.
“For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, ‘cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.’” (Gal 3:10)
A cursed person cannot participate in the rapture of the church of Jesus Christ. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
