About the Author
We were all commissioned to teach, but not all teach the same thing. We all have specialized talent. So, what is he commissioned to do? He believes strongly, “to keep them honest” (AC 360). God will always provide a way out and will always raise someone up from among His people. Why? There are many that are not reaping the benefits of His promises, because they do not fully understand. What is he saying? The Holy Ghost sent Phillip to meet up with the Eunuch, and he asked him, do you understand what you read? The Eunuch answered in frustration, “How can I, except some man should guide me?” Act 8:31 He is commanded and dedicated to help as many understand the scriptures more clearly, least any one should cause his own destruction. 2Pe 3:16
God commanded the Israelites to bring a tithe to His storehouse. So, He may have food for the poor, the needy, the fatherless, the widows, but He had the time of His life getting the Israelites to obey Him. They just would not comply. Today, the believers have not been commanded to tithe, yet it appears they would stop at nothing to take a tithe to their church. Go figure!
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.
