Famous Mega Church Pastor Creflo Dollar recently did a Sermon to his congregation where he apologized for teaching them to tithe. He later explained in the message that there is no need to tithe when you are under "Grace." Implying to his members that they do not need to follow Gods Laws, because they are under Grace. Are we supposed to tithe? 'This is the share due the priests from the people. You are to give them the firstfruits of your grain, new wine and olive oil, and the first wool from the shearing of your sheep, for the Lord your God has chosen them and their descendants out of all your tribes to stand and minister in the Lord ’s name always (forever). ' Deuteronomy 18:3-5 (Paraphrased)

It is my prayer that if I ever say anything, that you disagree with. That you go to the scriptures find the "Laws of God" and see if what I am saying aligns with "Gods Word." We've seen the money misused so many times by these Pastors that everyone is reluctant to give a tithe. Nonetheless, we forget that we are not giving the money to the "Man," but to God who sees your giving from above: 'At the end of every three years, bring all the tithes of that year’s produce and store it in your towns, so that the Levites (who have no allotment or inheritance of their own) and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.' Deuteronomy 14:28-29

There is back to back scriptures on tithing and the Lord Elohim, Yahuah says that if you tithe he would bless the work of your hands. I truly believe that many of us are not blessed because we do not tithe. Think about the so-called awaken community, we do not tithe at all. I have never seen someone who was righteous, who tithed to God, not be prosperous. I have never seen it in my entire life, tithing does work forsure and in this message above I give a personal testimony about my life and how tithing, being obedient to Gods Laws, his ideals, his principles has blessed me: 'Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will watch over me on this journey I am taking and will give me food to eat and clothes to wear so that I return safely to my father’s household, then the Lord will be my God and this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God’s house, and of all that you give me I will give you a tenth.”' Genesis 28:20-22

Lastly, yes we are supposed to tithe our money: 'Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year. But if that place is too distant and you have been blessed by the Lord your God and cannot carry your tithe (because the place where the Lord will choose to put his Name is so far away), then exchange your tithe for silver, and take the silver with you and go to the place the Lord your God will choose. Use the silver to buy whatever you like: do not neglect the Levites living in your towns, for they have no allotment or inheritance of their own. ' Deuteronomy 14:22-27

“Don’t you know that those who serve in the temple get their food from the temple, and that those who serve at the altar share in what is offered on the altar? In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel.” 1 Corinthians 9:13-14

“If we have sown spiritual seed among you, is it too much if we reap a material harvest from you? If others have this right of support from you, shouldn’t we have it all the more? But we did not use this right. On the contrary, we put up with anything rather than hinder the gospel of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 9:11-12
