Righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost is the Kingdom of God
Not tithing, first fruits and money consciousness
Let me quote the whole verse I was referring to in that first sentence.
“The kingdom of God is not in meat and drink, but in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit”
But an emphasis on tithing in the church with church leaders using their authority to push that false doctrine has presented the kingdom of God as meat and drink, as things earthly.
They say you must be born again for heavenly assurance but tithe for earthly assurance.
They say things like, if you don’t tithe you have signed up for penury (oh, how scary hahahahaha)
They say tithing opens the windows of heaven, while still maintaining that we have been blessed and are seated with Jesus in the heavenly
They say tithing prevents the devourer and they also say that Jesus appears to destroy the works of the devil
(Are they not the epitome of confusion?)
They say God commands tithing, while again saying that Moses and Jesus appeared on a mountain and God said from heaven: “this is my beloved son, hear him”. And Moses disappeared.
(They are two faced, double minded and cannot receive anything from God.)
They want us to go back to Moses (who is dead, as we are dead to the law), when Joshua (Jesus) is meant to take us to the promised land, our inheritance.
They have divided the gospel into two things,
what Christ as done for you
what you should now do for prosperity. The call the latter different names
Kingdom wealth principles
Covenant wealth, Covenant responsibilities. etc.
They are spiritual illiterates though they bear titles of PhD.
They push the materialistic gospel which is the false gospel.
It is the meat and drink gospel, which is no gospel at all, which perpetually points you to your own works and away from Christ. So you boast and you feel guilty in turn, tossed to and fro.
Those pushing this are therefore disqualified from building the kingdom of God because the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, not something physical.
The materialistic gospel is no gospel at all because it turns the words of Jesus on the cross from “It is finished” to “Go and finish it”. It is the anti Christ spirit because it contradicts the works of Christ, which is finished.
Don’t be deceived. Whatsoever a man sows he will reap. In tithing you sow to the flesh (your early life, sowing to meat and drink) and you will reap corruption, regardless of what you think you are reaping.
The scriptures cannot be broken. You are reaping corruption instead of moving into glorious liberty where you will lead the creation into freedom from corruption.
The Old covenant is the ministration of death. When you preach tithing you are ministering death. You have no excuse not to change, except you are stiff-necked and determined to resist the Holy Spirit.
