Verse of the Day: Tithing in Leviticus

May 24, 2007


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 to the Lord.

Leviticus 27:30 (NKJV)

Hope you guys and gals aren’t sick of tithing verses, because there’s a ton of them in the Bible! Here’s another one from Leviticus.

This concept is repeated throughout Scripture that the tithe belongs to God and that it is expected of Christians to pay the tithe to the Lord through your home church where you are being fed. This is so important in my life that I tithe 10% of my income every month and I have always had shelter, food, and clothing. God has never let me down in the past and He will not in the future because He’s promised it in His Word. He will supply all your need. Not some, all! But remember the difference between need and want.

All I can say is try it. I’ve even heard of a church that offered a 100% tithe guarantee that if they weren’t satisfied, the church would return their money! Who needs a guarantee from man? God’s the one who guarantees it!

  1. There are tens of thousands who have tithed all of their lives and are still the poorest people in the ghettos. God does not bless NT Christians using OT blessings for keeping ALL of the Law. Many Christians turn Lev 27:30-34 into four lies. (1) They define the tithe as money instead of only food (vs 30, 32). (2) They define the tithe as the firstfruits instead of the tenth (vs 32). (3) They define the tithe as the best instead of the tenth (vs 33). (4) They define the tithe as part of the New Covenant instead of the only covenant (vs 34). Plesse stop misusing God’s Word.

    I agree with Russell Earl Kelly.

    Tithe teaching is totally abused. Lev 27:32 differs from what you and others teach. God never required poor herders to tithe. If a person had less than 10 in the herd, then they were NOT required to tithe. God never directed animal sacrifice, tithing, and killing children for cursing God, and all the other 600+ plus laws to Christians. God’s principles do remain but the principles are the reasons behind the laws and not the laws or methods themselves.
