October 17, 2017 – Pastor Majid Michel Corrects Daddy Freeze Twisted Message On Tithing, Teaches Fans On How To Study The Bible
By Majid Michel
Now in the scripture, God established what we call tithing. Tithing was the act of paying God 10% of your income. And notice the emphasis is on “PAYiNG”. You don’t “GiVE” a tithe. A tithe is not a donation. it’s a Tax. According to the scripture, you owe God 10% of your total income and after you pay God what you owe Him, you then give as God has prospered you. Now i owe God 10% of my income and according to scripture, i owe God 10% of my income on behalf of who? Who was the tithe for?…. For the POOR! YES! The tithe was for the POOR.! Read how Ruth met Boaz in the Bible and study what we call Gleaning. All was for the poor. Better glass tinted widows, larger pipe organs, better carpet for the floor, better pews for the sanctuary, bigger fellowship hall, better Christian education building, we cheat God and we Rob from God by giving the money back to ourselves when God says it belongs to the poor. in the 70’s statistics said there were about 60million Americans that claim to be born again and committed to the Lordship and Authority of Jesus Christ and believe that the Bible is the word of God. Ok. These 60million, have a per capita income of 21 thousand dollars a year. This comes to something like 1.2 trillion dollars. if those people were obeying the word of God according to the scripture, it means that 120 billion dollars of their income belongs to the poor. And if Gods people were paying God what they owe Him on Behalf of the poor, there literally will be very little poverty in the world. And so the prophet asked a question, will a person rob God? i suggest to you that week in and week out, we rob God by not directing our income to where God says it ought to Go. Jesus is my savior. Not my religion. What we fail to realize is that God doesn’t need Your money. The church does. God is looking at your heart and loves a cheerful giver. if the church expenditure of money received is your issue, then address that. Don’t address giving to the Church. if you do your part, God will do his part ACCORDiNG to His PROMiSE. What the church does with the money has always been an issue. And that should not stop anyone from Giving to the Body of Christ.
Different Ways To Study The Bible
If you investigate the forms of bible study that goes on in your country, you can narrow it down to 3 basic forms. The first one, is called “DEVOTiONAL BiBLE STUDY”. This is where people study the scripture for what they can personally get out of it. if you are depressed, you read all the “up” verses. if you are unhappy you read all the “happy” verses. if you are broke you read all “money” verses. in other words whatever your particular situation is, you read the Bible to deliver you personally from that situation. The second form of bible study is “TELL ME WHAT iT MEANS TO YOU” bible study. Usually a small group of people draw up chairs in a circle, put their bibles on their lap and the leader of the group will say tonight we are going to study the prodigal son. Timothy you read verse one and tell us what it means to you. Pascal you read verse two and tell us what it means to you. Mawly you read verse three and tell us what it means to you. And by the time the meeting is over, you have “tell me what it means to you” bible study, and we all leave, knowing what the verse meant to everybody else in the group. The only problem is, if the Bible is the Word Of God, then MAYBE we ought to find out what it MEANS to GOD. The Third form of Bible study is the “OBJECTiVE STUDY OF HOLY SCRiPTURE iN ORDER TO GET THE MiND OF GOD”. in other words the real reason for studying the Word of God is to find out WHAT iS iN THE MiND OF GOD. And once finding out what is in the mind of God, THEN to DO iT!! The word of God says you will Love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your mind and with all your strength. And the only way i can prove that i love God is by doing what He tells me to do. And i cannot do what He tells me if i don’t know what He’s telling me. Which means with all my mind and with all my strength, i must find out what God is telling me, and with all my mind and with all my strength DO iT!!! The Bible is there to read… but anyone can translate it into their own meaning. Quoting scriptures doesn’t make one right.
