He May Be A Levite, But...


Standing Firm In Christ

1,382 views

A person once posed the question, "If we did a bloodline test, and it proved my pastor is a descendant of Levi, is he eligible to receive tithes?"

Bloodline test, DNA, genealogy,... any other evidence that would prove your pastor in "yourcity, planet Earth", is a Levite still would not excuse him from preaching the lie that God requires tithes of money.

There is not one single command in the Word of God for money to be tithed. If your pastor IS a Levite, the only tithe he would have been qualified to receive are tithes of agricultural nature... ACCORDING TO THE LAW. I said, "would have been", because Hebrews 7:18 tells us that the command for Levites to take tithes has been cancelled. Notice:

Hebrews 7:18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.

What commandment was the author speaking of? The commandment to take tithes of their brethren according to the Law.

Hebrews 7:5 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:


In AD 66, God said the commandment to take tithes was weak and unprofitable. It was beneficial for a time, but the economy was different in AD 66. Tithes were no longer needed.

By the way, the Law did not just say Levites were to recieve the agricultual tithe, it said where they were to receive it... in the land of promise. (see Deuteronomy 12:1-18 ) USA is not the Levite's "land of promise" That land is in an entirely different location altogether. Levites were not authorized to receive tithes in America, Germany, Italy, Norway, North Pole, South Pole, or any point in between except the land promised to their fathers.

    • Bro. Jim, Yes, this is me. I guess now everyone will know what I look like. I normally have not, since this time, put any videos of myself up on Online Baptist due to a couple of reasons. Due to the seriousness of some of the doctrinal problems within independent Baptist churches I decided to put up this sermon of myself instead of a written sermon. This in one of the English prophecy messages that I did at our church, Victory Baptist Church, in Hua Lien, Taiwan awhile back. We have an
    • Bro. Alan, is this sermon yours or by someone else? I ask simply because I do not know what you look like and therefore do not know who the speaker is.
    • Thank you for the fine sermon, and illustration, of the doctrine of the preservation of the written word of God. Jeremiah 36:1-32 is an excellent illustration of God preserving His word.
    • I appreciate the sermon and the appropriate quotes by some of the founding fathers of the United States: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John Jay, and Benjamin Franklin,
    • Yes, in spite of his environment, and his parents, and his conversations with God, Cain went bad and chose evil. A fruit tree without fruit is not much value. Jude 11-16 You are correct, a lot of people, saints included, do not want the punishment that they deserve. Folks try and justify the sins in their life, or, try and minimize their sins with no true repentance, in order to get rid of punishment. Cain is a warning to the saints and to the sinners. I appreciate your quote
    • It would have been much better if this was said at the beginning.
    • Repentance means a change of mind and heart toward God concerning sin.   When a person realizes that he is a sinner, repents of his sin, it is not a work.. repentance of sin is not a work.  A person who loves sin will not trust in Jesus.  Only those who realize their sinfulness and its condemnation, and need for deliverance would trust in Jesus as Savior.  Jesus said, I did not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance (Mark 2: 17) .     There is no physical effort or physic
    • That's a very heavy rock to carry, thanks to the Grace of God, we do not have to carry it . When a person hear the gospel of salvation for the first time, can he or she accept Christ, for salvation without realizing they are a sinner. Do you want to accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior? Yes I do, just pray and say I believe in Jesus. That it, that easy? I believe a person must realize, that he or she is lost, and that we were born sinners.         (Repent means to realize)     
    • My question is you said that repentance of sin is a physical work, so do you believe that the sinner must repent of sin and believe to be saved, or you believe that it does not involve repentance of sin to be saved?   Do you believe that salvation is by works or by grace?      IS REPENTANCE OF SIN A WORK THAT YOU MUST STRIVE FOR? Thursday, May 14, 2020   According to some modern preachers, that repentance of sin is a work that you must strive for, that in order
    • Both, with the soul and physically. You have to be alive and breathing. Not by good works, (effort) but we seek to do good works, after we are saved. To please and be obedience, to  God. Not to be a busybody pleasing some pastor or man.
