The Proper Teaching of Malachi 3:7-11

The proper teaching from Malachi 3:7-11 should be that tithing was an ordinance given to national Israel, not to the Church.

The proper teaching from Malachi 3:7-11 should be that Malachi was referring to a tithe of crops and livestock... not money.

The proper teaching from Malachi 3:7-11 should be that the curse associated with not tithing was locusts and withholding of rain... not loss of jOB, loss of money, ill health, automotive repairs, etc..

The proper teaching from Malachi 3:7-11 should be that the blessings associated with tithing was rain from heaven and withholding the locust from eating the crops... bringing about a bountiful harvest... not more money, better jOB, good health, close-knit family, etc..

The proper teaching from Malachi 3:7-11 is that it was written to Israel, not to the Church. The Church was not rOBbing God... the Priests of Israel were.

Monetary tithe requirement teachers clearly distort the proper teaching of Malachi 3, turning the rebuke and exhortation into something that God never said. The monetary tithe requirement doctrine is in improper doctrine and has no place in the post-cross Church.

Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Pastors need to allow the light to shine upon Scripture as they study it. Take off the blinders of religion and tradition, and let the mind of Christ interpret the Scripture. If they do, God will reveal to them that which He has revealed to many concerning the tithes of the Mosaic/Levitic Law.

    • Thank you for the fine message on Romans 1:16 & 17 concerning the gospel of Christ; true belief in Christ, repentance, humbleness in the sight of God, and salvation in the work of Christ, and His righteousness, alone. Thank you also for your four thoughts in soul-winning efforts, your love for soul-winning, and bringing out the fruits of repentance. Keep up your soul-winning preaching and efforts. "In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest
    • Thank you for your kind words. "As the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so is a man to his praise." Proverbs 27:21 Thank you also for this wonderful statement. I am sure it will be a blessing to all.
    • A wonderful devotion and commentary of Joseph Bro. Alan. I have always loved the story of Joseph, not just for the story, but also for the inspiration his life is in so many ways. It is not limited to simply old testament history, but gives us today the inspiration to overcome under even the most adverse of life's situations. While Joseph is certainly a type of Christ, when viewed in this capacity he exhibits the power and determination to use his life situations for God's glory as well as
    • You are hitting the leftist nail on its head my friend: Trump Derangement or something much darker?
    • Brethren, I would like to add this note on the interpretation of the two dreams of Joseph  in Genesis 37:5-11.  Alan The Unbelief of the Dreams of Joseph by Pastor Steven Anderson Pastor Steven Anderson does not believe that two dreams of Joseph is fulfilled in the proper interpretation of the symbolism in Revelation 12:1-6. Pastor Anderson states, “So because of that dream that Joseph had, people will often look at Revelation chapter 12, and they see a woman clothed with the

    • I added more information concerning this topic today, and corrected some grammatical errors; I also made some mistakes by leaving out certain cross references that needed to be added, but hopefully they are corrected. 
    • I do hope that the "Relaxing Instrumental Hymns," uploaded by, "Christian Music World," is a blessing to your soul.   May the Lord bless all of you. Alan
    • "For it is impossible for those who were once [enlightened], and have [tasted of the heavenly gift], and were made [partakers of the Holy Ghost], And have [tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come], If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame." (Hebrews 6:4-6) There will come a point in every person's heart where they will NEVER repent and accept the message of the
    • Jim, I am glad to hear that the devotion was a blessing to you. As with many other saints, the life, the character, and the moving incidents in the life of Joseph, are an inspiration.  Throughout the life of Joseph, we can see God moving His hand in the life of Joseph to use him for the deliverance of the Jewish race, the deliverance of the Egyptians, and we can see the character of Christ. Truly, Romans 8:28 is evident in Joseph's life, "And we know that all things work together
