God’s commandment is eternal, God commanded not to eat the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Now, why is it not applicable already today when God’s word is eternal? The answer is because God already remove the tree of knowledge of good and evil from the garden and even if human wish to obey or disobey this commandment, it simply is not doable because the tree of good and evil is hidden or nowhere to be found.
This reasoning applies to tithing, this commandment of God is simply not doable in the time of Christ because Christ already remove the one who has the commandment to collect it- the sons of Levi (Hebrews 7:5) and, change it to Himself who came from the line of Judah.
“Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called according to the order of Aaron? For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law.” Hebrews 7:11-12 NKJV
Now, you may say that tithing was given before the law. Well, actually tithing was not given before the law. Abraham was not commanded to tithe nor Melchizedek was commanded to collect it. For you to obey something, someone must have commanded it but neither Abraham or Melchizedek was commanded to give or collect it. The only commandment of tithe was during the law to which, the sons of Levi has the commandment to collect it.
You might argue and say; Hebrew 7:11-12 means that, Yes, the levitical priesthood already has been change to Jesus Christ. Now, we are not giving to any levitical priest or to any man rather we are giving our tithes to Jesus Christ since He replaces the levitical priesthood. With this I say, under the law, when they don’t give tithes, who are they robbing? Is it not God? Tithes belongs to God so, under the law, when they give tithes, they give it to God through levitical priesthood. But, God is also Jesus Christ. Therefore, under the law, when they give tithes, they are giving it to Jesus Christ through levitical priesthood. But, when levitical priesthood was remove, there is no more middle man authorise to receive biblical tithe in behalf of God or Jesus Christ.
You might ask, if this is the case, then why is my Pastors still require and or ask for it when he did not even descend from Levi or even if he did, he would not still qualify because, sons of Levi were already change? The answer, you are gullible and naive with the word of God hence, you are constantly being robbed with your 10% income when in the first place it was not even money all in the name of God.
