Abraham Did Not Tithe
As believers most don't study as commanded and the consequences of that can be deadly. The command to study rightly dividing the word of truth was given for our benefit. When it's done we can challenge any “word” we feel is not lining up with the written word of God. If not done then we can be destroyed for our lack of knowledge. For years you were mislead as to whether Abraham tithed or not. More
Abraham did not tithe, regardless of what all your Preachers, Pastors and Teachers may teach you. He did not know what tithe was, because God had not yet established it. When this event with Abraham and King Melchizedek took place his son Isaac had not yet even been born. Tithe was established by God through one of Abraham’s grandsons, Jacob, whose name was later changed to Israel some five hundred years later. Eph 4:11; Gen 14:20; Dt 12:6, 14:22-23; Lev 27:30
The bible says Abraham did tithe. You see this at both places, Genesis 14:20 of the Old Testament and Hebrews 7:2, 4 of the New Testament, so who in the world is this guy going against the written word? This guy gets his authority from the same written word found at 2 Tim 2:15. It tells him to rightly separate, break down and study the divine word of truth. In doing just that he can boldly say and show you “Abraham did not tithe”. 2 Tim 2:15(KJV).
The words tithe and tenth as they are used in the scriptures Gen 14:20 and Heb 7:2, 4 show you Abraham did not gave 100% of what he had, nor did he gave 50% of what he had, but only 10%. This 10% is called a tenth or a tithe. The scriptures clearly state he gave a tenth of all. When the two additional words, “of all or of everything” are used, it clearly shows they are not a tithe of God. A tithe of God, another meaning of the word tithe, is what they wish you to believe Abraham gave, and hope to keep you confused so you too may do the same. You
see, they are not rightly dividing the word “tithe”. Gen 14:20; Heb 7:2, 4; 2 Tim 2:15(KJV).
When you study the accounts of Abraham you see he was very obedient to God. He giving a tithe of God to a priest of the most High God would not have been an act of obedience. In those days God looked at obedience preferably over acts of sacrifice. God said His tithe was holy. When He instructed His people to give a tithe, He never instructed them to tithe from spoils of war. So! They teach you this with intent to further deceive, knowing all well, Abraham did not and could not have given a tithe in the manner they would have you to believe. Gen 12:1-5, 13:17, 14:20, 17:11-12, 23, 22:2-3; 1 Sam 15:22; Nu 18:28; Dt 12:6; Lev 27:30
Tithe/tenth “of all” and tithe of God were both tithe systems. Each of the systems were systems of provisions and both benefited those who received, but only the system established of God benefited both those who received and those who gave, along with the widows, the fatherless, and the poor. The “tithe of all” could have left the giver with nothing, or zero, causing one to come to a point of lack. The tithe of God was established with specific intent to prevent that. It was never in God’s plan for His people to come to zero or to lack from a result of His request unless through one’s disobedience. Dt 11:17, 14:29, 15:11.
This book is not too much on tithe as it is more about whether Abraham gave a tithe or not. You shall see for yourself, Abraham did not tithe.
