I Thank God for none of His words will go forth without fulfilling its purpose.Mal 3:10 saysBring all the tithes into the storehouse that there may be food in My house & try Me now in this, if I will not open for you the windows of heaven & pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive itthese has been my portion since I started tithing, sowing my 1st seed (1st salary) every year.God has sustained my job desperate challenges of diff kind.My prayer is for every christian to hold unto every word of God for it will surely come to pass, if we are faithful becos I am a witness.I pray for the grace to continue to pay my tithe and my 1st fruit yearly, give offering and give to the poor/needy too.

Don't confuse giving with the Biblical tithe. They have nothing in common.
NO ONE, absolutely NO ONE pays the Biblical tithe today.
Leviticus 27:30-33, Numbers 18: The First Tithe - a tenth of crops and animals and commanded to take the tithe to the Levites.
Deuteronomy 14:22-27: The Second Tithe aka The Festival Tithe - a tenth of crops, plus add to that the firstborn animals, and take for the yearly feast.
Deuteronomy 14:28-29: The Third Tithe aka The Three-Year Tithe aka The Poor Tithe - a tenth of crops, kept at home, and invite the Levites, widows, orphans, stranger to eat.
Now, tell me. Which of the above three tithes commanded by God does anyone follow today?
The ONLY people in the Old Testament that were commanded to tithe were those who INHERITED THE PROMISED LAND WITH EVERYTHING ON IT. They got the land, house, animals, crops, etc. ALL FREE AND CLEAR. No mortgage payment or rent to pay. And THEY were commanded to tithe on the crops and animals and take it to the Levites who INHERITED the tithe INSTEAD OF the promised land with everything on it. No one else tithed. Wage earners did not tithe. Jesus didn't tithe. Paul didn't tithe. Peter didn't tithe.
HOW CAN YOU COMPARE THAT WITH CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE TO PAY THEIR MORTGAGE PAYMENT OR RENT, INCOME TAXES, PROPERTY TAXES, SALES TAXES, ETC?
There is no way to justify making some "principle" out of the Biblical facts and then apply it to Christians today. It is just flat out wrong and makes no sense at all.
The New Testament teaches generous, sacrificial giving, from the heart, according to our means. For some, $1 might be a sacrifice, while for others, even giving 50% of their income might not induce a sacrifice. In the Old Testament, ONLY the farmers tithed, and it was equal percentage (a tenth). The New Testament teaches the principle of equal sacrifice instead of equal percentage. Equal sacrifice is much harder to achieve, if not impossible, than giving ten percent.

I am so thankful of the kingdom principle that is giving the portion that is for God. It really works in my life. May it physically,financially and even in protection.God is really faithful in His promises in giving the 10th portion of all the blessings and many grace I received from him. Specially the time I lost my job and suddenly you will be called and hired for another job.Amazing.At my age that I am suppose to retire but still I have given the opportunity to work as I am not depending to my brothers & sister.Living alone.Praise God.thanks for His goodness.Pearl..

God is really amazing. In the bible He said that we can't ask for proof about Him as its a sign of unbelief but with respect to giving and tithing, He told us that we can test Him in this. Truly, God is amazing. His grace is always sufficient to our needs. He has come so we may have life and that we may lived a life of abundance. God, you are great and awesome!
