The Book of UJU

Tithe Offering



A message from Uju a servant of Christ Jesus by the grace of God through Christ Jesus, according to the Word in the scripture,

2. To CHRISTENDOM; glory and honor be unto LORD God Almighty and Christ Jesus our Lord savior forever and ever. Amen.

3. According to Amos 7.14-15:

“Then Amos answered Amaziah, I am no prophet, nor a prophet’s son; but I am a herdsman, and a dresser of sycamore trees, and the LORD took me from following the flock, and the LORD said to me, “Go prophesy to my people Israel.”

4. So am I, Uju, a worker of art by trade; the Word of God, the Spirit of God, in the name of Christ Jesus appeared to me in a flame of fire from the Scripture; and I immediately prophesied saying, “Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand” to people of the world.

5. I am no pastor, evangelist, prophet nor an apostle, but by the grace and mercy of God the father of Christ Jesus, I am writing this message to Christendom according to the scripture.


6. IN the Book of Genesis 14.18-29, it is written:

“And Melchizedek King of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was priest of God Most High. And he blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, maker of heaven and Earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand! And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.”

7. Abraham the patriarch gave Melchizedek a tithe of the spoils – Heb7.4.

8. It is evident Abraham was the first to be mentioned in the scripture concerning tithe offering.

9. Heb 7.6 states that:

“But this man (Melchizedek) who has not their genealogy received tithes from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises.”

10. Heb .9-10 further mentioned:

“One might even say that Levi himself, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham for he was still in the loins of his ancestor, when Melchizedek met him.”

11. From the above scene, it is clear that the priests of God received tithes: one, Melchizedek and two, the Levites.

12. “Melchizedek, is first by translation of his name, King of righteousness, and then he is also King of Salem, that is King of peace. He is without father or mother or genealogy, and has neither beginning   of days nor end of life, but resembling the son of God he continues a priest forever” – Heb7.23.

13. The Levites are the priests of LORD God by the order of Aaron in the 1st Covenant; descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

14. In Gen28.22, during Jacob’s flight and vision that led to his naming of Bethel (House of God), made a vow to God: “and of all that thou givest me I shall give the tenth to thee.”

How come about tithe offering in Levitical Priesthood?

15. It is without dispute that tithes originated from God, and instituted in Levitical priesthood by Him. The priesthood was a gift from God to Aaron’s household: “And you and your sons with you shall attend to your priesthood for all that concerns the altar and that is within the veil; and you shall serve. I give your priesthood as a gift, and anyone else who comes near shall be put death.” – Num 18.7.

 16. So also the tribe of the Levites was given to Aaron as a gift by God: “And behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the peoples of Israel: they are a gift to you, given to the LORD, to do the service of the tent of meeting – Num 18.6

17. By this setting, both Aaron, his household and the Levites have become the portion and inheritance of God among the people of Israel, and shall no longer have inheritance with their brethren. God would cater for their livelihood from tithe offering and other offerings from their brethren as a reward for their services which they render at the tent of meeting – Num 18. 1-21

18. Tithe offering is one among the many offerings to God by the people of Israel. They quite understood the relevance of it right from their forefathers – Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; so, it is never new to them.

19. The newness of it is when it was given as a gift to Aaron, his household and the Levites as an institution. It became a law – a perpetual statute throughout their generation; with a death penalty for the offenders of the priesthood of Aaron – Num 18.7. This explains how serious it was to them before God.

20. Num 18.23-24 emphasizes that:

“But the Levites shall do the service of the tent of meeting, and they shall the iniquity; it shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations; and among the people of Israel, they shall have no inheritance. For the tithe of the people of Israel, which they Present as an offering to the LORD, I have given to the Levites for an inheritance; therefore, I have said of them that they shall have no inheritance among the people of Israel.”

Covenant of Salt

21. Every offering by the people of Israel belongs to God. It is offered by the people of Israel to God: from tithe offering to burnt offering – Lev 1.3-17; cereal offering – Lev 2.1- 16; peace offering – Lev 3. 1-17; sin offering – Lev 4 .1-35 and Lev 5. 1-13; guilt offering – Lev 15. 14-19 and Lev 16. 1-7.

22. From these offerings God makes His gifts as pleases Him. To whom that pleases Him, He gives gifts from the offerings – Num 18.6-7. So, all the offerings especially tithe offerings are gifts of God.

23. In Num 18. 19-20, LORD God said:

“All the holy offerings which the people of Israel present to the LORD I give to you and your sons and daughters with you as a perpetual due; it is a Covenant of Salt forever before the LORD for you and your offspring with you.”  And the LORD said to Aaron,

“You shall have no inheritance in their land, neither shall you have any portion among them; I am your portion and your inheritance among the people of Israel.”

A Tithe of the Tithe

1. Every tithe offering from the people of Israel, God gave as a gift to the Levites.

2. Then, from God’s gifted tithe offering to the Levites, the Levites were required by God to gift a tithe to Aaron and his household, called a tithe of the tithe. Aaron was the priest, and his brethren the Levites were the ministers. All to LORD God!

3. As written in Num 18. 25-29:

And the LORD said to Moses, “Moreover you shall say to the Levites, when you take from the people of Israel the tithe which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then you shall present an offering from it to the LORD, a tithe of the tithe. And your offering shall be reckoned to you as though it were the grain of the threshing floor, and as the fullness of the wine press. So shall you also present an offering to the LORD from all your tithe, which you receive from the people of Israel; and from it you shall give the LORD’s offering to Aaron the priest.”

4. God’s gifts of the tithe offerings to Aaron and the Levites were their reward in return for their services in the tent of meeting, which was instituted by God in Levitical priesthood after the order of Aaron.

The Problem with Tithe Offering

 5. Tithe offering among other offerings were an integral part of the 1st Covenant between God and the people of Israel, which Moses was the mediator – a Levite and a servant of God.

6. The 1st Covenant contained the Law, Statutes and Ordinances.

7. The obedience of the 1st Covenant could have led the people of Israel to perfection and God’s rest, but couldn’t, because they did not purse it with faith.

8. The essence of tithe offering in Levitical priesthood was to sustain the priest and the ministers, in reward for the services rendered in the tent of meeting.

8. To encourage tithe offering by the people of Israel, God promised a lot of blessings to the faithful. This is evident in Malachi 2. 6 -12. In this verse of Malachi, God lamented about their cheating; Israel were robbing God in the act. Some failed to offer, and when they did, they offered blind, lame, sick animals; some offered rotten cereals and soured wines. God was very angry.

9. Tithe offering was obviously abused by the people of Israel. Though tithe offering was not a seed of salvation like justice, mercy, faith and love; they misunderstood the essence of it and used it in error to score religious goals.

10. Sons of Jacob overwhelmingly chose tithe offering over weightier matters of the Law – Matt 23.23.

11. Remember, the incident of the widow’s might in Matt 12. 14-44; remember also the word: Corban, in Mark 7. 9 -13.  Instead of aiding perfection it brought destruction; and hence was set aside. They made it an object of worship (mammon), well and above God, which led them to idolatry.

Jesus Christ: The Beginning and End of Tithe Offering

1. 1Cor 10.23 states that:

“All things are lawful’, but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful’, but not all things build up.”

2. Yes, tithe offering is scriptural; it was lawful, but no longer helpful.

3. Yes, tithe offering is biblical; it was lawful; instead of building up it became destructive!

4. Tithe offering contributed in leading the people of Israel away to eternal damnation, instead of leading them to eternal life.

5. Tithe offering as condemned by Christ Jesus in Matt 23.23, became the main focus, drive and foundation of worship to increase religious and material gains instead of the salvation of souls: it became the seed of covetousness – greed, avarice and hypocrisy.

6. Remember the cleansing of the temple in Jerusalem by Christ Jesus in Matt 21. 12 – 13, the Lord re-emphasized that: “My house shall be called a house of prayer; but you make it a den of robbers.”

7. Christ Jesus the begotten son of God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, is the beginning and end of tithe offering. He is both the 1st and 2nd Covenants; he is the law, statutes and ordinances; he is the Lord of Sabbath, meaning he is the worship. He is also the tithe offering; the High Priest, one seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven. He offered the sacrifice once and for all.

8. Remember, everything was created for him, by him and through him, both in heaven and on earth. He is the power of creation and the righteousness of LORD God – Col 1. 15-20; Prov 8.22-31; Heb 1.2-3.

9. Before Abraham, he was. He is the tree of life in the Garden of Eden; the rock of living water struck by Moses in the wilderness; the very manna from heaven.

 10. Aaron and the Levites offered tithes through him, by him and for him, because he is the worship.

11. Christ Jesus is the worship – the worship of God, he obtained a supreme ministry: a ministry of reconciliation, where all who draw near received without payment. He set up a new structure of worship and obtained a perfect priesthood by the order of Melchizedek, and abolished the old one: the imperfect Levitical priesthood which was by the order of Aaron- Heb 7. 1-28.

12. Christ Jesus is the mediator of the New Covenant, where all manner of worship is anchored: he therefore, established a ministry, and called and chosen ministers not only from the house of Jacob, but the entire world! The exclusive right to tithe offering by Aaron and the Levites was abolished, and replaced with offerings for the saints: the saints being the ministers of the New Covenant – 2Cor 3.6.

13. Obviously, every worker deserves his wages: “you should not muzzle the ox when threshing out the grain”, says the Lord. He who serves the temple, should live by it; he who sows spiritual seed, should reap its material fruits.

14. Should we therefore, reap the material fruits by exaction? By no means! Should we serve the temple by extortion and hypocrisy? No way! Should we sell our consciences for prosperity? God forbid!

15. Then, by what means shall the ministers of Jesus Christ Live?

16. Excellent! The new life in the New Covenant is based not on the works of the law, but on grace and mercy in the law of Liberty – the perfect law: James 1. 25 and 2.12. Freely did you receive, freely shall you give – Matt 10.8.

No more Tithe Offering, but offering for the saints!

1. The manifestation of the death of tithe offering was evident in the case of Ananias and Sapphira: Acts 5. 1-11. It was the first display in the lives of the apostles and faithful disciples of the Lord that offerings in the new dispensation of life are no longer by exaction (tithe offering), but by free will (Offering for the saints – 2 Cor 9.1).

2. The life of Christ Jesus on earth was on charity: faithful followers provided for them freely out of their means – Lk 8. 1-3.

3. Jesus Christ, the apostles and faithful disciples set the rule straight by example regarding the means of livelihood of the ministers of the New Covenant. They never put any obstacles in the way of spreading the gospel to the adherents.

4. As against the Levitical priesthood, the ministers of the Lord worked sometimes for their livelihood: Paul and Aquilla were tent makers by trade – Acts 28.30; 4.32-37. They even condemned anyone by the name of brethren living in idleness – 2 Thess. 3. 6-12, stressing that if anyone will not work let him not eat. This is a complete turnaround in the lifestyles of the ministers of the aborted 1st Covenant.

5. The Lord said in Matt 10.10: “The laborer deserves his food.” “And, you shall not muzzle the ox when threshing out the grain” – Deut. 25.4; 1Cor 9.9.  In every respect, it is the right of ministers of the Lord to live by the gospel – 1Cor 9.14, not by tithe offering anymore, but by free will contributions.

6. In Rm 15. 25-28 – free will contributions for the saints in aid to their livelihood was in action from the people of Macedonian and Achaia as Paul was passing through Spain in his letters to the Romans. It wasn’t tithe! It was gift! And these free gifts to the saints sometimes were by voluntary partnerships.

7. The offering for the saints in Christ Jesus was more explicit in 2Cor 9.1-15. It is underlined in 2Cor 9.5:

“So, I (Paul) thought it necessary to urge the brethren to go on to you before me, and arrange in advance for this gift you have promised, so that it may be ready not as an exaction but as a willing gift.”

8. The same is stated in 2 Cor 9.7:

“Each one must do as he has made up his mind not reluctantly or under compulsion for God loves a cheerful giver.”

9. Recall that this is in contrast to a tithe payer, who is under compulsion to pay the mandatory tithe offering, accompanied by guilty conscience if he fails to pay. And most times cannot fulfill the payment

10. A tithe payer is not a cheerful giver – because he was compiled to pay out of his means. He is Squeezed to pay; yes, it is an exaction: a grievous sin in the ministry of Christ Jesus!

11. What else are we to say concerning the Philippians’ gifts: their free partnership with the ministers of the Lord in Phil 4. 14-19. This is emphasized in Phil 4.15:

“And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I (Paul) left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving except you only;”

Tithe payment today in the name of Jesus Christ – a grievous sin:

1. The first commandment of LORD God is: “You shall have no other gods before me.” – Deut. 5.7

2. Disobedience to this commandment is called idolatry. Disobedience in itself is an act of idolatry. This is because if you don’t obey God, you are obeying Satan: you cannot obey God and at the same time Satan. You cannot serve two masters at the same time.

3. In Lk 16. 13, the Lord said that:

“No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

4. We are in the New Covenant with God, today! The Old Covenant couldn’t lead us to perfection and God’s rest; so, it was set aside – Heb 8. 7-13.

5. The New Covenant was already prophesied by Jeremiah in Jer. 31. 31-34; and the prophesy of its mediator; the Messiah, Prince of Peace, Mighty God, Immanuel, etc.; was given by the prophets of the old notably by Isaiah – Is 7.14; Is 9.6.

6. The mediator of the New Covenant, Christ Jesus is the tithe paid: the Lord of Sabbath, the very worship of God and our high priest in heaven! The living water, the light of men, the resurrection and the life, son of David, the Lamb of God, the righteousness of God, the power of Creation, etc!

7. Please, how come the payment of tithe today in the name of Jesus Christ? Who are these ministers collecting tithe today in the name of the Lord? Who are these tithe payers today in the name of son of David? Please, who are these idol worshippers? We will find out!

8. In human setting: can any nation be ruled by degree and constitution at same time? The military rule by degree, and civilian by constitution: one must give way to the other.

9. So is with the 1st and 2nd Covenants, when there is a change in the government, there is also a change in the law. This is applicable in God, who is the maker of the ruler and the ruled.

10. Heb 7.12, states that:

“When there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessary a change in the law as well.”

11. We are now in the priesthood of our savior, Christ Jesus, who has obtained a supreme ministry of eternal life in glory built on the law of liberty. God the Father, in His infinite mercy called and chose many impartially to be ministers of the New Covenant, not in a written a code, but in the spirit; for the written code kills (1st covenant), but the spirit gives life (2nd Covenant).

12. So how come the mixing together the practices of the Old and New Covenants? The resultant mixture became a hybrid – a monster, a beast, a ravenous beast destroying all and sundry: bestriding the entire religious jurisdiction, called Babylon – meaning Christendom!

13. Who is responsible for the tithe payment in name of the Lord, today? Is it not the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan- Rev 20.2! Is Satan not working in collaboration with the beast and the false prophet (Rev 19.20) to deceive those destined to eternal destruction?

14. This is why the deceitful workmen (ministers of Christendom) are being led astray to perpetual damnation by Satan who disguises himself as an angel of light as written in 2 Cor 11 .13-15:

“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So, it is no strange if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.”

15. Mammon is the spirit behind tithe payment in the name of Jesus Christ in Christendom. It is the spirit of Satan: an evil spirit. Mammon is a god in itself. If you are a tithe collector, a preacher of tithe payment and a prosperity minister in the name of Jesus Christ: you are obviously worshipping a god called mammon. If you are worshipping another god other than the God of Israel, you are committing idolatry!

16. Please if you are ignorant of it, this is the time to repent. Today, when you hear his voice: the silent voice of your conscience, don’t harden your heart; O preachers of tithe payment!

17. What about the hypocrisy? Worse than an acclaimed sinner. The hypocrisy in The Great Denunciation by the Lord in Matt 23. 1-39: the many woes pronounced on the scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees. They are today the false men of God of Christendom: the tithe collectors, the prosperity preachers, the Nicolaitans – Rev 2. 6, 15. False prophets; by their fruits you shall know them; Matt 7 .15-20.  

18. Hypocrisy today, in the sense and call for seed sowing alluding to tithe payment for the salvation of your soul. What wickedness! Awful hypocrites – Matt 23.1-29: religious fraudsters!

19. So wicked and shameless are these false ministers of the Word in flaunting the covetous wealth in pretense that it is a sign and reward for righteousness: fooling themselves and their captives in the believe that the more you pay tithe, the more the blessings you receive. They go ahead to quote Mal 2. 8-12, in support of their deceptive claims. Workers of iniquity; chameleons.

20. They are the Nicolaitans; false teachers, distinctively described in Jude 2-16. Evildoers: Matt 7.21-23.

The idolatrous mixture called Babylon: Christendom!

1. Remember the words of Jeremiah in 51. 6-9: the fall of Babylon; and in particular in verse six:

“Flee from the midst of Babylon, let every man save his life! Be not cut off in her punishment, for this is the time of the LORD’s vengeance, the requital he is rendering her.”

2. The fall of Babylon meaning Christendom is more evident in Rev 18. 2-24, with particular reference to verse 2:

“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! It has become a dwelling place of demons, a haunt of every foul spirit, a haunt of every foul and hateful bird;” Verses 4-6:

“Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues; for her sins are heaped high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her as she herself has rendered, and repay her double her double for her deeds; mix a double draught for her in the cup she mixed.” Verse 24:

“And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on earth.”

3. You see her judgment? The judgment of Babylon the great- Christendom: a religious jurisdiction!

4. The foundation of Babylon – Christendom, is idolatry; and their stock in trade is mammon. They have erected again the destroyed Tower of Babel – Gen 11. 1-9: their ministers are the preachers of mammon; our present-day scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees, condemned by the Lord in Matt 23. 1-39

5. Be wise, O my people! Can’t you see the idolatrous mixture of the 1st and 2nd Covenants with the resultant hybrid – a monster called Babylon: Christendom. How they singled out tithe offering among the many offerings: sin offering, burnt offering, cereal offering, peace offering, guilt offering, etc in the the worship of the 1st Covenant and mixed it in the worship of the 2nd Covenant!

6. They have become Aaron and the Levites in the name of Jesus Christ as pastors, bishops, general overseers, evangelists, apostles, prophets, etc; establishing centers of tithe collections in the name of “churches”.

7. Levites as the ministers, collected tithes from the people of Israel and paid a tithe of the tithe to Aaron, the priest. Aaron even brought out a tithe from his tithe and gave to the needy! This was the setting in tithe offering in Levitical priesthood.

8. But, today’s setting in Christendom is full of greed, avarice and wickedness: the so-called men of God, the heads and acclaimed owners of the “churches” gather all the offerings from their captives as their own, and hand out little or nothing to the ones that minister for them.

9. These disguised devils use the idolatrous money to live a lavish lifestyle. Living in heavy mansions and villas; on the wings of private jets, exotic cars and hosts of priceless apparels; establishing huge investments with the seed capital of tithe offerings. Conmen! You can deceive the people, and not all the people. And not God, either!  

10. Your judgment is already on; the judgment of Babylon: Christendom. A religious jurisdiction! 

God is never against being rich!

11. Heaven and earth are mine, and all the things thereof – said the LORD God. All the men that serve God in spirit and truth are never poor: past, present and future.

12. From Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, the prophets, the apostles and all faithful ones of the Lord have never been poor. Anyone who is poor by worldly standard is by choice, and not by condition. He chose to be worldly poor in other to make you rich in the Lord – 2Cor 8.9.

13. God is love, and love is God: He made rain to fall on the rooftops of both sinners and righteous. Are not some of His enemies – the disobedient of the Word extremely rich? How much more His beloved ones!

14. God is against seeking wealth sinfully. He said: money answers to all things, but the love of it, is evil. The love of money is idolatry: mammon – evil spirit associated with wealth. How much more when you seek it deceitfully in His name; using His name to accumulate wealth, fraudulently.

15. In Matt 6.33, the Lord said:

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.”

16. Remember, heaven is not food and drinks (wealth), but peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. And the Lord said again that what will it profit a man to gain the whole world (ill-gotten wealth), and lose his own soul?

God loves a cheerful giver!

17. “You shall not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the grain” – Deut. 25.4; 1Cor 9.9. In the same way, the lord, said that, those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel – Matt 10.10.

18. And, in 2Cor 9 .1 offerings for the saints is clearly stated.

19. Remember everything you have comes from God. The life you live is a gift of God! O! Merciful God!

20. It is good to receive, but more excellent and rewarding to give. The hand of the giver is always on the top, while that of the receiver is below.

21. God first gave to you in love through Christ Jesus, such that you can give to one another not by exaction but cheerfully: God loves a cheerful giver – 2Cor 9.7.

22. The preachers of the good news (the gospel), are giving to you first with expectation of nothing in return, but love. A cheerful giver is a giver of love, because God is love, and love is God.

23. If God loves a cheerful giver, then check out His bountiful blessings on him, well and above a tithe payer. A cheerful giver is: a free giver, a giver without regrets, and a giver in faith; a lover and doer of the Word!

1. Who then is compelling you to give out of your means?

2. Who is preaching to you to pay tithe in the name of Jesus Christ?

3. Who is quoting for you Mal 2. 8-12, in support of his deceitful and wicked act?

4. Who are these preachers of prosperity – placing mammon over righteousness?

5. Are they not the ones who claimed to be your general overseers, arch-bishops, bishops, senior pastors, evangelists, pastors, apostles, prophets; “church” founders and owners? Conmen!

6. But God has His own among these fake men of the Word; the Lord said that you should allow the crops and the weeds to grow together, and at the last day they shall be separated, and the weeds will be thrown in hell fire; and the crops will be taken to heaven.  

7. Come, you tithe payer!

8. Why do you succumb to pressure by reason of conscience to pay tithe? And in other to pay tithe you steal, defraud, commit various sins.

9. So, what are you expecting in return? You are expecting blessings, breakthroughs, open-doors, etc?

10. Because, these religious conmen have promised you blessings, breakthroughs and open-doors; you run from pillar to post to look for money to fulfill the seed-sowing call. O’ man you have been robbed!

11. These religious conmen are big time religious investors – bigger than the merchants of Venice! They are the merchants of Babylon! Rev 18. 1-24.

12. Do you know their stock in trade? Human Souls! Human souls are their stock in trade: Rev 18.11-13.

13. And, you are that soul! O’ tithe payer, you are their slave!

14. You are trapped, because of lack of spiritual wisdom and understanding. God has been begging you to ask, you shall receive; knock the door shall be opened for you. You failed to receive because you did not ask, or you asked wrongly.

15. Seek for spiritual wisdom and understanding from God, and He will bountifully give you. Please, I sincerely beg you, cry for spiritual wisdom and understanding as written in Proverbs: Chapters 2, 3 and 4; and Psalm 119. It will definitely lead you to the truth; and the truth shall set you free from the clutches of the evil one, whose power is sin and death.

16. There are more blessings to a cheerful giver than a tithe payer: 2 Cor 9.8-15. The reward for a free will giver will surely quicken him to salvation if it proceeds from faith: God will listen to the prayers of the saints for him for the salvation of his soul. The essence of life on earth is for salvation!


1. The scripture says the gentiles lord it over their subjects – an undue imposition. The same are the prosperity preachers and other lords of Christendom: gentile sinners!

2. The structure of worship in the 1st Covenant was lords and subjects with an undue imposition as written in Heb 9.1-10:

“According to this arrangement, gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot perfect the conscience of the worshipper, but deal only with food and drink and various ablutions, regulations for the body imposed until the time of reformation” – Heb 9.9-10

3. The same is noted in Col 2.16-23, and specifically underlined in Col 2.23:

“These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting rigor of devotion, and self-abasement and severity to the body, but they are of no value in checking the indulgence of the flesh! 

4. In the present setting in Christendom, there are more rigors of devotion, self-abasements, and ‘Worships of angels’ coupled with tithe payments and various ablutions imposed on their subjects.

5. This is the time of reformation!

6. The mixture of the 1st and 2nd covenants by the ministers of Christendom is idolatry. Now is the time of reformation. There is a new wave of persecution from Christendom to anyone opposed to their works and teachings: these Nicolaitans would go to any length to blaspheme any uncooperative fellow as they did to the Lord. But the persecution is a tonic to your sonship to God.

7. The anchor of worship in Christendom is mammon; and this is rooted in tithe payment and collection. It has stoked the ambers of religious affluence, and brought in head-on competitions among rivalries in Christendom. Mammon is therefore flaunted as epitome of righteousness: attracting emulations by their subjects, and more often than not leads to worship of the ministers instead of worship of God!

8. The allusion to tithe offering as seed-sowing is very sinful. Seed is the word of God, and not money. In the explanation of the Parable of the Sower in Lk 8.4-15, the Lord said:

“Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God” – Lk 8.11.

9. Today, these fake men of God have branded seed as money, and are compelling their captives to

sow seed (tithe payment) to be saved! You cannot buy the word of God, please. Remember the case of a man called Simon, when he offered money to the apostles to obtain the gift of God, and Peter replied him saying: “Your silver perishes with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money.” Acts 8. 18-21.

10. O’ tithe collector and payer, repent or likewise perish! O’ ministers of Christendom – prosperity preachers heed the voice of Christ Jesus and repent, and come together to reform. This is the time of reformation.

11. The offering for the saints is the source of the livelihood of the ministers of Jesus Christ, and not tithe offering.

12. Please I appeal to you in the name of the Lord: learn and practice the network involving the offering for the saints set up by the apostles through Christ Jesus and become prosperous according to the will of God, and not by your own will.

13. Learn the partnership associated with the offering for the saints in the course of the apostles spreading the gospel. Remember the Philippians’ gifts and the free will contributions of the people of Macedonian and Achaia: follow the pattern!

14. In as much as free will offerings is not the only character that would lead you to salvation, but it will go a long way in earning you the mercy of God.

You and God alone!

15. Read the book of Ezekiel concerning personal responsibility: Ezek 18. 1-32, you will immediately realize that is you and God alone. And God said:

“Behold, all souls are mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sins shall die.” Ezek 18. 4.

16. And in Ezek 18. 20, God reaffirmed that:

“The soul that sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.”

17. Salvation or eternal damnation therefore is a personal responsibility; either to the tithe collector or the tithe payer. If you are a pleaser of the congregation as a minister or you are a pleaser of a minister, as a worshipper:  bear in mind that it is at your own risk. Whatever you place above God is a sin, because it is idolatry.

18. That which does not proceed from faith is sin. This means that anything you do, and not in consideration of God first is sin, because you have put that first before God: you will bear the result.

19. Disobedience was the first sin of man; and from it came death. And death spread to all mankind. But obedience was the first act of righteousness that brought salvation by one man; and he did it once and for all mankind. Therefore, your commitment in life on earth is very personal: your conscience exonerating you or condemning you.

20. In your quiet moment, at the end of the day, your conscience speaks silently to you either for or against you; by this implication your judgment is going on every day of your life. The decision you take is regarded as “death”, after which is judgment; and if you fail to a take a decision and decide to sit on the fence, you case becomes worst: life does not tolerate a vacuum!

21. Either you are cold or hot; no lukewarm. If you are waiting until you pass on or die as a human being for you to be judged, you are obviously doomed. You must be judged while living on earth. While you are alive on earth your judgment is going on. If you do not know this, please do now. The decision you take on earth is either a spiritual death or a spiritual life.

22. If you die on earth, you will either resurrect to eternal life or to eternal death, because your name must have been written in the book of life or in the books of death while alive on earth. The final judgment is to call out those whose names have been written either in the book of life or in the books of death. Your activity on earth determines where you will end up with God through Christ – who is the judgment of both the living and the dead.

23. Whoever is telling you by quoting the scripture: after death comes judgment, by implication of when you die as a human being then comes your judgment is deceiving you; he does not understand the scripture. Your judgment is going on right away on you while alive on earth, and not when you die as a person.

24. Please, what’s your decision? The decision you take is the judgment. If you do not judge yourself, then you will be judged. And if you come into judgment, you are doomed forever.

25. It is better you judge yourself now while alive. If you are conscious of your judgment or you are judging yourself while alive definitely you will gain salvation! Your conscience is your judgment; and if you listen to your conscience you will be saved.

26. Eternal life or eternal death is of man’s heart!

27. And, your heart is your spirit!

28. And your spirit is your conscience! And in it your judgment goes on. No man will save you. Nothing on earth will save you; be it a minister or the “church”, but yourself through Christ Jesus. Salvation is in your own hands. Is you and God alone!

29. Whether you know the Bible or not; whether you go to “church or not; all you need to be saved isalready in you. There is evidence of the existence of God around and in you; so you don’t stand any chance to deny it.

30. The breath you breath is God! This is a clear example of the existence of God.

31. Salvation is not in any “church” or in any religious organization! Salvation is in your heart.

32. I am a refugee of Babylon the great – among those God in His Infinite mercy through Christ Jesus has called out from the city of Babylon: Rev 18.4.

33. May the Holy Spirit of God open your heart to understand this message and abide by it. Let the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, be with your spirit. Amen.
