Abrahamic Tithe and Jacob Vow

Jacob did not tithe, he vowed to tithe but was not fulfilled in his lifetime.

“Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me, and keep me in this way that I am going, and give me bread to eat and clothing to put on, so that I come back to my father’s house in peace, then the LORD shall be my God. And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God’s house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You.”Genesis‬ ‭28:20-22‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Since promise to God should not be broken, God asked what had been vowed to Him through Jacob or Israel as people.

Part of Jacob’s vow was to give a tenth of what will God give him and God gives the land of Canaan therefore, a tenth of the land was returned for the promise to be fulfilled.

Abraham did tithe but was not commanded to do so. He tithed without any rule of what and to whom the tithe shall be given.

Any act of giving 10% to whoever and whatever is called tithing if based before the law. There are no rules to bound, where, whom, what is tithing since there is no law about it before the law. So, if I give 10% to the needy and have faith that by doing so, I’m giving to God, I’m basically tithing the same as Abraham which was by faith or believing that you are giving to God.

Also, you cannot really follow how Abraham tithed since he gave it to someone who was described in Heb. 7: 1-3 to be of no beginning, nor end of life. I’m pretty sure that no man today lives forever.

Have Faith as a Mustard Seed

“So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew‬ ‭17:20‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

What does the verse above mean?

Let’s analyze:

Mustard seed though small can grow to a great height. What the verse is trying to imply is that, no matter how you feel insignificant in this world like a mustard seed, if you just have faith or a strong belief in God, yourself and in all the things that you do and wish to happen, you can achieve it.

In secular terms, this is also called the law of attraction it is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It is believed that regardless of age, nationality or religious belief, we are all susceptible to the laws which govern the Universe, including the Law of Attraction. It is the Law of Attraction which uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality. In basic terms, all thoughts turn into things eventually. If you focus on negative doom and gloom you will remain under that cloud. If you focus on positive thoughts and have goals that you aim to achieve, you will find a way to achieve them with massive action.

This law was placed in the universe by God since the beginning of time and no matter who you are, how small you feel like, if you just believe strongly or have faith that whatever you set in your mind will happen, it probably will.

Like the black mustard seed which has the potential to grow to over ten feet in height. A man really has the same potential to achieve great things but, one must have that strong belief in God who made the law, to himself and to the things he does.

Logos and Rhema

Logos is a principle of divine reason which can be express in rhema. In John 1:1 The Word (Logos) refers to Jesus since there was no other flesh in John 1:14 that embodies this divine reason but Jesus.

Rhema are things spoken.

“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words (rhema) that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.” John‬ ‭6:63‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

In any case, a divine reason need to be uttered or spoken.

Jesus in itself is the Logos or the divine reason and He expressed this by his rhema or from the things He spoke.

Overall, Jesus is both the divine reason and the expression of this divine reason. Or, Jesus is both the Logos and Rhema meaning, He is THE WORD and words.

One Name of Father and Son

(1) The LORD will become king over all the land. (2) On that day the LORD will be one, and the (3) LORD’s name will be one.”Zechariah‬ ‭14:9‬ ‭CEB‬‬

The bible said;

“I say to you very seriously that as long as heaven and earth exist, neither the smallest letter nor even the smallest stroke of a pen will be erased from the Law until everything there becomes a reality.”Matthew‬ ‭5:18‬ ‭CEB‬‬

Zechariah 14:9 was already fulfilled but when it was fulfilled, it was just a start not the end of it.

The Lord is One- Jesus

The Name is One – Jesus

Being fulfilled until He fully becomes the King over all the Land.

One name carried by the Father and the Son.

JESUS

The Son confessed.

He came in His Father’s name. And, the name given to Him was His Father’s name.

Be Content With Your Wage?

“Likewise the soldiers asked him, saying, “And what shall we do?” So he said to them, “Do not intimidate anyone or accuse falsely, and be content with your wages.” Luke‬ ‭3:14‬

Be content with your wage, it does not say though to be content with what you had achieved.

Wage is relative to what you can achieve.

If you are a mailman and you have a salary of $1000, be content with this salary but don’t be stuck up or be contented by being a mailman for the rest of your life unless, your salary is enough to help the needy, support yourself, your household and still enough to leave inheritance to your children’s children.

Remember to take the following verses also into consideration:

“A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous. Proverbs” 13:22

“Those who give to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to them receive many curses” Proverbs 28:27

“Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever” 1 Timothy 5:8

An Introductory Name

Are you not wondering? The law was only a shadow or a preview of the things that would come. Yet, the name that Moses received was a personal/preferred/final name? For consistency sake, since the law was just a preview or introduction of the things that came, the name given to Moses should also be the same, it must be also a preview of who came- THE LORD.

It does not make sense that God would give His most personal/preferred/final name to Moses when the law He gave was only a preview of the things that came.

Some argue that THE LORD there is YHWH. But, I will argue that God for some reason wanted us to realize that He made a way on how to established this matter whether it should be THE LORD or YHWH.

This way is based on the verse below;

This will be my third visit to you. “Every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.” 2 Corinthians 13:1

It says every matter must be established by 2-3 witnesses if we put it by ratio. It would follow that

-Out of 4 witnesses, at least, 3 must agree to each other.

-Out of 8 witnesses, at least, 6 must agree to each other

-Out of 12 witnesses, at least, 9 must agree to each other.

-And, so forth.

Now, lets established this matter by getting 8 translation, at least 6 of these translation must agree to each other.

I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not give my glory to anyone else, nor share my praise with carved idols.”Isaiah 42:8 NLT

I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”Isaiah 42:8 KJV

I am Jehovah, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise unto graven images.”Isaiah 42:8 ASV

I am Jehovah. That is my name; I give my glory to no one else, Nor my praise to graven images” Isaiah 42:8 NWT

I am the LORD; that is my name; I don’t hand out my glory to others or my praise to idols.” Isaiah 42:8 CEB

I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols.” Isaiah 42:8 NIV

I am the Lord, this is my Name, and my glory wil I not giue to another, neither my praise to grauen images.”Isaiah 42:8 GNV

I am the LORD! That is my name! I will not share my glory with anyone else, or the praise due me with idols.”Isaiah 42:8 NET

As you can see, out of 8 translation, 6 have said that the name is THE LORD. 2 of the translation says Jehovah.

Applying the principle of how to established any matter, the bible therefore established it that the name given to Moses was THE LORD, same as the law, this name is a preview of who came that became the Christ.

THE LORD JESUS.

Are you being Objective or Subjective?

It’s an illusion to be objective when the subject false under belief.

We can only be subjective.

Whether you like it or not, interpreting the bible will always fall under subjective. You will always shape the interpretation of the bible to what makes sense to you and what makes sense to you is subjective. Meaning, it may make sense to you but may not to others.

For this reason, we have a different interpretation of the bible since what makes sense to you may not make sense to me and to others. Now, to tell someone that you are being objective than the other is you in attempt to tell that what you believe is the one that makes sense than the others because you are objective when in fact, you only believe that you are being objective to which, by doing this you are being subjective.

This is real talk! There is no objective when it comes to belief, believing in God is personal and will always be subjective.
