Many churches and other places of worship believe in the concept of tithing, or giving ten percent of one's net income to the organization. Some of them go a step further and try to embellish it by demanding ten percent of gross income, which for many, is an unbelievable sacrifice. The Israelite priests knew that they were to take ten percent of the tithes and offerings for themselves, and that in keeping with God's commands, the remainder was to be used to assist the poor and needy in the Israelite community. The tithes and offerings were never to be used to assist and/or to uplift the enemies of God. Enemies of God are those who refuse to obey his commands or to accept Jesus as Lord.
When the Lord God Almighty knew that Jesus, our Messiah, would need to return to the earth for a thousand years, in order to cleanse the earth, he decreed that tithes and offerings must be paid to him, and that those who refused to pay tithes and offerings should be cut off from the kingdom. If you are not asking the Lord what you should do with the ten percent that is due to him, then you are not deemed to be paying tithes and offerings to the Lord.
If you are in the kingdom of God, in that you have been sealed with the Holy Spirit Of God and raptured, you owe it to yourself and to your family to seek the Lord's guidance in the use of your tithe. You will never know the evil for which your tithe can be used and has been used. Nor will you ever see the persons who have been harmed. That is because churches have used the tithes and offerings to support foreign entities that are unrelated to the church, unrelated to their mission, and unrelated to their congregation. That is not a proper use of the tithes and offerings, and an improper use is the same as not paying tithes and offerings to the Lord.
When you know the good you ought to do and you refuse to do it, God considers it sin. When you see the good you ought to do and you refuse to do it, God considers it sin. When you hear, see, and know the good you ought to do and yet you refuse to do it, God views you as an infidel. An infidel cannot reap the benefits of being in the kingdom of God, nor can he or she have the power that is necessary for functioning in the kingdom of God. In the kingdom of Satan, everyone does exactly what Satan wants them to do with the money he gives to them. The same principle should apply to those who are in the kingdom of God.
