Like I,said before,FALSE WITNESS,FALSE WITNESS! ONLY GOD KNOWS THE TIME DATE AND HOUR.So,world,its been going on for a long time and will keep
happening,until it really happens.So,my friends,just be ready,because we don't know when it will happen.But Jesus did say,watch for the signs,they
will be there.So,since 1948,things are coming to past,Jesus said look up and be ready.But don't set dates,hour or time,that is God almighty's
job.Everyone needs to go back and reread the gospels and the bible,the truth is there.Man kind is telling it wrong,Not even the angels,or Jesus knows
Mark 13:32 "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Acts 1:7 He said to them: "It is
not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.
This song keeps coming across my mind.about people why they go to church.Do,you really know why you are there? Search your heart,good works and being
just good,won't get you into heaven.As for the money part,I,posted it on the facebook article.
We are tithe,but do it the way Jesus said to do it.
The tithe first appears in Genesis 14:20 where Abram gave to Melchizedek of tithe of all. This passage tells us nothing else about whether this was
what God expected or what we should emulate. In Genesis 28:22, Jacob made a promise to God to give a tithe if God brought him back to the land. The
tithe appears again in the law where God gave to the Levites the tithes of the Israelites and gave to the priests the tithe of the Levites (Numbers
18:21-26). God also commanded a tithe for the support of celebration (Deuteronomy 14:23-29).
In Malachi 3:8, the passage most often quoted on the subject, God tells the Israelites that they have robbed Him in their tithes and offerings. In the
New Testament, the tithe is not commanded, unless the reference in Matthew 23:23 & Luke 11:42 is seen as an indirect command.
Though the New Testament teaches much on giving, it is strangely silent concerning the tithe. Thus, passages such as Romans 12:13, 20; 1 Corinthians
13:3; 16:2; 2 Corinthians 8 & 9; Galatians 6:6, 10; Ephesians 4:28; Philippians 4:14-19; 1 Timothy 5:17-18; 6:17-19; Titus 3:1, 8; Hebrews 13:16;
James 2:14-16; I John 3:17-18 give us a great deal of instruction on giving, yet without ever mentioning the tithe.
I think the answer is in who we are. Once we come to Christ, we die to the law (Romans 7) and we become a new creation, the first part of the eternal
state God will create. As such, we die to the old creation and we are no longer under law. We are now simply His servants, responsible as stewards to
do His will, answerable to Him for every action we take, and every dollar that He brings into our possession. Some of those dollars should be used to
support ourselves (2 Thessalonians 3:12). That is where Paul begins with those who are not working. They should work and eat their own bread. Then, we
should work to support our families. Paul tells us that if we do not support our families, we are worse than an infidel (1 Timothy 5:8). Then we
should work to support others in need (Ephesians 4:28). We should support God's ministers (1 Corinthians 9:9-14; Philippians 4:18; 1 Timothy
5:17-18). We should use our resources to lay up treasure in heaven, as Jesus taught.
Because of this, I think that the question is no longer whether we give a tithe, but whether we have given our all to Christ. If we give our goods to
feed the poor, it profits us nothing without first giving ourselves to God in love (1 Corinthians 13:3). Once we realize that we have died to
ourselves and the focus of our lives is now on serving our Lord Jesus, then as a good servant we no longer are free to act as if His resources are
ours to use as we desire; they are His to use as good stewards of that resource.I,think maybe this is what these people think they are doing.This is
what we have been taught,,,,,
but,I,found this article,
I,really like it,I,believe it to.Must read,Its the way the true tithing should be and
how it really was back then.We,are to still do it this way. This will upset pastors,I,find it very interesting.I,am going to study it more.They say
you learn something new everyday.I,am open for truth and facts.So,these people giving for the rapture,even got it wrong on giving ,this man is taking
it all,I,wonder if he is really is a true Christian.He has done this all wrong and a false witness to god. Here is the song,I was talking about,It
makes you stop and think.
,This is my testimony,both of these songs,
what they said,we as Christian need to step back and be like Jesus.
First know, I am a Christian. I am not attacking the Christian faith, but I am strongly objecting to how more and more Christians are treating
nonbelievers. This is my response to what I see as more and more judgmental Christians out there who seems to think they are something special and
snub those that aren't believers. The only people Jesus ever blasted were the religious leaders of His time. They put Him down for hanging out with
'sinners', for eating with them, for even being around them, yet Christ said He came not for the righteous but for the sinners of which we all are.
The only difference between us and others is we are saved sinners. Of course we strife to be Christ like and through the Holy Spirit many of those
sins are gone but we commit one of the worse sins by driving people away by being hateful towards them! Jesus said the world would hate us for loving
Him...but is that the reason you are hated? Or its it because you bully and put down others and try to dictate their lives? If you notice the Jews
were being run by the worse nation in the world, Rome, yet Jesus did nothing to try to change Rome. He never fought against it, never ranted about
their pagan gods, nor how badly they treated the Jews...why was that? Because change comes through the heart first. Eventually Rome fell, due to
changed hearts but not by bullying or forcing their ways on them. We cannot ignore the teachings of Christ to love others, even our enemies saying
well He is going to judge the world's sins and smite 'the wicked'! If He does, that is for Him alone to do...not us. I do not see one verse in the
bible that says we have the right to past judgment on others or condemn them either. Christians are becoming lost themselves and hearing too many
Christian leaders telling us to 'fight back' and do this and that and we have gone past the defense mode, to the attack mode and this goes against
everything Christ taught us. Too many have become just plain hateful, twisting scriptures to justify it. The bible only says we can judge other
Christians, NOT outsiders. The only one worthy of judging is Christ Himself...not one of us can judge others salvation. I realize Christians get worn
down by the attacks we encounter constantly on the net and at times in our day to day lives, but you cannot assume everyone is out to attack your
faith and be so defensive all the time. Approach those that do want to know more with love and kindness! You are representing Christ in everything you
do. This is in the bible. One day you will have to give an account for how you treated people. I think this is something that oughta cause alot of
trembling knees... The song is just the chorus of "Love them like Jesus" by Casting Crowns
Then I,was like the woman at the well.That's why I,don't judge.I,remember where I,cam from.We,need to treat non-believers better then we do.That's
why Non-believers run.Christians act like goody to shoes,this is wrong.We,once were bad to.and we still make mistakes,we aren't perfect.But we know
where to go and repent.
,This is my life story.I,love this song.He can do it for you.I,am
sorry,this is a long article,but it is a article of love.I,am saying there will be a rapture,I,just don't know when,just be ready.This is a very
serious matter.It is a spiritual war,good and evil.Evil has set SATURDAY UP!
This is to let you know who I,am and what I,believe in.This is why I.speak strong on biblical issues.If it wasn't for Jesus,I,wouldn't be here
today.I,had a very hard past life.I,experienced things,a child should of never experienced,all the way to a adult.But people and God never gave up on
me.So,I,AM HERE TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCES.It,may help someone.If It just helps one,I,feel,I,did something right.God is first in my life.I,pray for all
of you,no matter what you think of me.I,know one day my prayers will be answered.I,really feel for these people about SATURDAY.They will need prayer
and help and forgiveness.This rapture business is very serious.You see there is a spiritual war going on between good and evil.Evil is doing this
Saturday stuff,laughing at man kind and God.But evil will lose.Pray for them Saturday and pray for ISRAEL,THEY WILL NEED US MORE THEN EVER.THANK YOU
