As can be seen, the tithe, or a tenth of one’s income became a voluntary donation, or the amount that the person could TRULY afford. There was, however, no restriction on the amount, which could be far more than the tenth of the person’s income or profits.

It will always remain a matter of conscience, but Jehovah God, with His abundance of undeserved kindness cannot be petty, but He will exact judgement where disrespect is apparent, where either too much or too little is donated, and with the wrong motivation.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL POSTS WILL BE PRECEDED BY THE IMPORTANT WORDS BELOW!

NOT ONLY WILL THE TRULY “WICKED” PEOPLE BE ETERNALLY DESTROYED BUT ALSO ALL THAT ARE UNACCEPTABLE TO OUR CREATOR JEHOVAH GOD! THE ONUS IS ON EACH AND EVERY PERSON TO ENSURE THAT THEY AND THEIR MINOR CHILDREN ARE ALL ACCEPTABLE! MILLIONS OF “NICE” PEOPLE WERE ALSO ALL DESTROYED IN THE FLOOD OF NOAH’S DAY! REMEMBER . . . JUST GOING TO CHURCH DOES NOT MAKE ONE A CHRISTIAN ANY MORE THAN SITTING IN A GARAGE MAKES ONE A MOTORCAR, AND LIFE WITHOUT PERSEVERING IN DOING JEHOVAH GOD’S EXPLICIT WILL TO THE BEST OF ONE’S ABILITY IS LIKE AN UNSHARPENED PENCIL . . . IT HAS NO POINT!

2 CORINTHIANS 13:5 & 6

5 KEEP TESTING WHETHER YOU ARE IN THE FAITH, KEEP PROVING WHAT YOU YOURSELVES ARE. OR DO YOU NOT RECOGNISE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS IN UNION WITH YOU? UNLESS YOU ARE DISAPPROVED! 6 I TRULY HOPE THAT YOU WILL COME TO KNOW WE ARE NOT DISAPPROVED. (The onus is on each and every person to frequently ensure that they are endeavouring to persevere in doing Jehovah God’s EXPLICIT will to the best of their ability! They must ENSURE that they are in Jehovah God’s ONE and ONLY TRUE FAITH!)

All remarks in Italics are also pertinent to the other subjects that have been or will be discussed, and also relevant to the Scripture that is being given now and those given later.

TITHE

Jehovah God had a purpose in introducing the Tithe. The upkeep of the church and the basics required were known down to the finest detail by Jehovah God.

So, the Tithe would definitely suffice.

Jehovah God never had enormous and very expensive buildings in mind that cost billions of dollars, and then to add insult to injury, that those “monstrosities” should or would be erected in the vicinity where billions would be living in dire squalor, hunger and poverty.

Let us have a look at a few Scriptures from the Bible:

2 Kings 12:4

And Je·ho’ash proceeded to say to the priests: “All the money for the holy offerings that is brought to the house of Jehovah, the money at which each one is assessed, the money for the souls according to individual valuation, all the money that it comes up on the heart of each one to bring to the house of Jehovah,

2 Kings 12:8

At that the priests consented not to take any more money from the people and not to repair the cracks of the house.

1 Chronicles 29:9

And the people gave way to rejoicing over their making voluntary offerings, for it was with a complete heart that they made voluntary offerings to Jehovah; and even David the king himself rejoiced with great joy.

Luke 11:42

But woe to YOU Pharisees, because YOU give the tenth of the mint and the rue and of every [other] vegetable, but YOU pass by the justice and the love of God! These things YOU were under obligation to do, but those other things not to omit.

Luke 18:12

I fast twice a week, I give the tenth of all things I acquire.’

Luke 21:2

Then he saw a certain needy widow drop two small coins of very little value there,
