Friends,

There has been an alarming and disturbing trend in recent days.  Since Obama was re-elected on November 6th, tithes and offerings to this ministry have plunged.  Now I know that many of you are disappointed, and I know many are concerned about the future. I know many of you are looking for areas in your budget to cut back.

I want to emphasize to you that prosperity does not result from withholding tithes and offerings.  To the contrary the Scripture says:

8 Will a man rob Elohim? Yet you rob Me. But you say: 'Wherein have we robbed You?' In tithes and heave-offerings.
9 You are cursed with the curse, yet you rob Me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring you the whole tithe into the store-house, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now herewith, says YHWH Tzva’ot, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall be more than sufficiency.
(Malchi 3:1-10 HRV)

The fact is that as tithes and offerings have plummeted since Obama's re-election, the WNAE store-house has depleted and become empty!

Things have become so bad, that I have gone unpaid.  We recently had to borrow money from a friend just to get by.  Last week we had to repair the brakes on our car.  We actually spent the last of our money today on Macc and Cheese for dinner.  My wife (who is disabled and has a neurological disorder) has an appointment to see her neurologist tomorrow because her symptoms have gotten worse.  She had to wait several weeks for this appointment, but if donations do not come in by tomorrow, we will not have the gas to take her, and she will have to reschedule (taking several more weeks to get in). On top of all of this I am having to personally write a "brief" due on Monday in our case to save our home from a fraudulent foreclosure, because we cannot afford an attorney.

Am I not "a workman worthy of his wage"? (Matt. 10:10; 1Tim. 5:18)

The Scriptures tell us that when we withhold tithes and offerings, we "oppress the hireling in his wages" (Mal. 3:5, 8-10)

Is this work worthy of your support?

What other ministry provides this kind of teaching? What other ministry is doing this kind of work?
In the Wisdom of Ben Sira we read:

In a generous spirit pay homage to YHWH,
Spare not freewill gifts.
With each contribution show a cheerful countenance,
and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy.
Give to Elyon as he has given you,
generously, according to your means.
For YHWH always repays,
and he will give back to you sevenfold.
(Sira 35:8-10 HRV)

Don't believe me, believe your Scriptures, believe Elohim!

 

Help us keep the vision alive!

Our Messiah Yeshua said:

A thief does not come, except to steal,
and to kill, and to destroy.
I have come that they might have life,
and they might have that which is abundant.
(Jn. 10:10 HRV)

Notice that there are two forces at work here. YHWH wants us to have abundance but HaSatan wants to steal this
from us. The Torah tells us that YHWH promises us blessings if we observe His Torah:

1 And it shall come to pass, if you shall hearken diligently unto the voice of YHWH
your Elohim, to observe to do all His commandments which I command you this day,
that YHWH your Elohim will set you on high, above all the nations of the earth.
2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you shall hearken
unto the voice of YHWH your Elohim.
3 Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field.
4 Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your land, and the fruit of your
cattle, the increase of your kine, and the young of your flock.
5 Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading-trough.
6 Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
7 YHWH will cause your enemies that rise up against you, to be smitten before you: they
shall come out against you one way, and shall flee before you seven ways.
8 YHWH will command the blessing with you in your barns, and in all that you put your
hand unto: and He will bless you in the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you.
9 YHWH will establish you for a Set-Apart people unto Himself, as He has sworn unto
you, if you shall keep the commandments of YHWH your Elohim, and walk in His ways.
10 And all the peoples of the earth shall see that the Name of YHWH is called upon you,
and they shall be afraid of you.
11 And YHWH will make you over-abundant for good: in the fruit of your body, and in
the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your land, in the land which YHWH swore unto
your fathers to give you.
12 YHWH will open unto you His good treasure: the heaven to give the rain of your land
in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. And you shall lend unto many
nations, but you shall not borrow.
13 And YHWH will make you the head and not the tail. And you shall be above only,
and you shall not be beneath, if you shall hearken unto the commandments of YHWH
your Elohim, which I command you this day, to observe and to do them,
(Deut. 28:1-13 HRV)

Likewise if we are not Torah observant we face a number of curses:

14 And shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the
right hand or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
15 But it shall come to pass, if you will not hearken unto the voice of YHWH your
Elohim, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command you
this day, that all these curses shall come upon you, and overtake you:
(Deut. 28:14-15 HRV)

The text goes on in Deut. 28:16-68 and also in Lev. 26 to give a list of curses we will face if we do not observe YHWH’s Torah.

Now this brings us to Malachi Chapter 3

8 Will a man rob Elohim? Yet you rob Me. But you say: 'Wherein have we robbed You?' In tithes and heave-offerings.
9 You are cursed with the curse, yet you rob Me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring you the whole tithe into the store-house, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now herewith, says YHWH Tzva’ot, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall be more than sufficiency.
(Malchi 3:1-10 HRV)

And in the Wisdom of Ben Sira (in the Apocrypha) we read:

In a generous spirit pay homage to YHWH,
Spare not freewill gifts.
With each contribution show a cheerful countenance,
and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy.
Give to Elyon as he has given you,
generously, according to your means.
For YHWH always repays,
and he will give back to you sevenfold.
(Sira 35:8-10 HRV)

It has been said that religion and money are delicate enough subjects on their own and that the man who broaches both at the same time is sticking his neck out. And unfortunately many who have come to the truth of Torah and Messiah have come out from bad experiences in Churchianity in which they often encountered “fishers for dollars” rather than "fishers for men".

 

No matter how delicately it is put, people will often misunderstand when the subject of tithing is taught. Yet the tithe is part of the Torah and it needs to be taught just like the Sabbath or any of the other mitzvahs. And just as we encourage believers to observe the Sabbath, we must also encourage believers to observe the tithe. It is important to realize that the tithe (10%) is the floor and not the ceiling. The Tithe already belongs to YHWH (Lev. 27:30). No one is ever said in the Scriptures to GIVE the tithe. The tithe is paid, not GIVEN. Freewill offerings are gifts, but the tithe already belongs to YHWH and when we do not pay it, we have stolen from YHWH. Some people tell me that they will tithe after YHWH blesses them, but how can one expect to experience blessings in one's life when one is stealling from YHWH Himself.

 

You may have heard that for some reason or another we do not need to pay the tithe today. That teaching is absolutely false. If you have any questions about the Tithe and whether or not we should pay the tithe today, see our article The Tithe of YHWH.

The tithe is the one commandment about which YHWH actually challenges us to test him and see if he will not bless us.

HaSatan HATES the tithe, he wants to steal the blessings that YHWH has in store for us, and he wants to destroy the work of YHWH. He is terrified at the thought of Nazarenes all over the world tithing. If we wish to stand against HaSatan we must start by getting serious about the Tithe. Go ahead... test YHWH and see if he does not repay you seven fold in His blessings!

HaSatan wishes "to steal and to kill and to destroy" (Jn. 10:10) and he knows the time is short and has stepped up his war with those who proclaim both Torah Observance and Faith in Messiah (the two pillars of Nazarene Judaism) (Rev. 12:12, 17; 13:7). But no weapon forged against us will prosper (Is. 54:17).

Elohim requires a physical tithe to run his kingdom and to accomplish his work upon this earth.He could do it all, but that is not the plan, he has given a most precious gift, the chance to learn to be like him, but it requires great love of Elohim, spiritual connection and sacrafice.  From what has been stated so far and from what I believe from what I see in Scriputure, he requries a 100% spiritual tithe, to completely please and honor him and from what I see, those who are not, will most likley not survive these end of time years intact.

A side note, beside tithing, to help this work move along; I have noticed that there are quite a few thousand members, if only each or most of the members submitted a dollar of few, the Dr Trimm would not be in such dire straights each month. Besides tithe, Dr.  Trimm is due his worth, he does a lot for the cause, a man should be paid for his services and needs. Amongst Elohim's people, there should be no want for physicasl or spiritrual needs. Granted, this is in perfect world and this world is far from that, but we shouild be striving to be a Zion people, a people of one heart and mind, to the will and love of Elohim.

If 100 people would give $30 right now, the goal would be met.

That's one dollar per day for a month.  I'm personally doing it right now.

Are there 99 others?
