*The bible is the Word of God because it contains the Word of God
*God gave the scriptures, not man
It is written in the prophets, and they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
John 6:45 KJV
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Acts 17:11 KJV
Don’t depend on men to understand scriptures, listen to them but go home and research with an open heart to the Father.
*You cannot understand the scripture by human intellect, understanding comes by revelation.
No matter how far you’ve gone on a wrong road, turn back. But pride will not let many turn back. Disobedience and greed will not let many turn back. Not being open minded will not let a lot of people turn back.
Wrong teaching is wrong no matter who has been teaching it.
Any teaching that exalts works is wrong teaching; whenever the finished work of Christ is exalted Christ is exalted and He gets the glory that him alone deserves.
*Christ paid the ultimate price, a child of God should not feel condemnation in any way.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:1 KJV
Telling a priest to tithe is a wrong teaching, even when tithing was practiced in time past, priest don’t tithe… The tribe of Levi don’t with because it was the tribe of priesthood.
Today, we who are in Christ are priest and we are not supposed to tithe. We have tithed in Abraham as Levi was recorded to have given his in Abraham.
Again, it is mortal men that receive tithe and we who are in Christ have put on immortality because Christ is immortal and we are ONE in Him.
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us KINGS and PRIESTS unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Revelation 1:5-6 KJV
*Priests do not tithe to priests. Tithes are paid to the high priests, and Jesus is our high priest.
*You are immortal. You are God the son of God the Father.
And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.
Hebrews 7:8 KJV
“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your herb gardens, but you ignore the more important aspects of the law—justice, mercy, and faith. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things.
Matthew 23:23 NLT
*Do not neglect the truth of the gospel. Spread the truth of Jesus.
