The Remnant Church of Jesus Christ
TITHES AND OFFERINGS
We believe Tithe is one-tenth or ten percent, (GENESIS 28:22)  “AND THIS STONE, WHICH I HAVE SET FOR A PILLAR,
SHALL BE GOD’S HOUSE:  AND OF ALL THAT THOU SHALT GIVE ME I WILL SURELY GIVE THE TENTH UNTO
THEE.”

We believe and practice the paying of Tithe and Offerings unto God, (MALACHI 3:10)  “BRING YE ALL THE TITHES INTO
THE STOREHOUSE, THAT THERE MAY BE MEAT IN MINE HOUSE, AND PROVE ME NOW HEREWITH, SAITH THE
LORD  OF HOSTS,  IF I  WILL  NOT OPEN  YOU  THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN, AND POUR YOU OUT A BLESSING,
THAT THERE SHALL NOT BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE IT.”  
(PSALM 50:14)  “OFFER UNTO GOD
THANKSGIVING; AND PAY THY VOWS UNTO THE MOST HIGH:”  
(EXODUS 25:1-2)  (1)  “AND THE LORD SPAKE
UNTO MOSES, SAYING, (2) SPEAK UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, THAT THEY BRING ME AN OFFERING:  OF
EVERY MAN THAT GIVETH IT WILLINGLY WITH HIS HEART, YE SHALL TAKE MY OFFERING.”  
(PSALM 96:8)
“GIVE UNTO THE LORD THE GLORY DUE UNTO HIS NAME:  BRING AN OFFERING, AND COME INTO HIS
COURTS.”  
(Luke 21:1-4; Gen. 28:22).

The Tithe is the paying of ten percent of your gross earnings.  The Offering is whatever amount your heart wants to give God.  
We believe that the Christian can not afford to withhold their tithe from God for two reasons:  (1)  God can bless the nine-tenths
and make it go a lot farther than if you kept the entire amount, Haggai 1:6-7,9; and (2) We definitely do not want to rob God of
His Tithes and Offerings.

We believe that to withhold the Tithe and Offerings (or any part of it) from God is to rob Him,
 (MALACHI 3:8-9)  (8)  “WILL
A MAN ROB GOD?  YET YE HAVE ROBBED ME.  BUT YE SAY, WHEREIN HAVE WE ROBBED THEE?  IN TITHES
AND OFFERINGS.  (9)  YE ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE:  FOR YE HAVE ROBBED ME, EVEN THIS WHOLE
NATION.”

We believe that God has commanded us to pay our  tithe on the first fruits of our labor or on the gross wages and increase, not on
the net or that which is left over,
(PROVERBS 3:9)  “HONOUR THE  LORD  WITH  THY  SUBSTANCE,   AND  WITH  THE
FIRSTFRUITS OF ALL THINE INCREASE:”  
(NEHEMIAH 12:44)  “AND AT THAT TIME WERE SOME APPOINTED
OVER THE CHAMBERS FOR THE TREASURES, FOR THE OFFERINGS, FOR THE FIRSTFRUITS, AND FOR THE
TITHES, TO GATHER INTO THEM OUT OF THE FIELDS OF THE CITIES THE PORTIONS OF THE LAW FOR THE
PRIESTS AND LEVITES:  FOR JUDAH REJOICED FOR THE PRIESTS AND FOR THE LEVITES THAT WAITED.”  
(Nehemiah 10:35,37; Deut. 14:22).

We believe that God has commanded us to pay tithe on all of our increase, such as money that is received as wages, investments,
interest earned, a gift, an inheritance, money that was found and/or from the sale of anything that has brought a profit,
(PROVERBS 3:9)  “HONOUR THE LORD WITH THY SUBSTANCE, AND WITH THE FIRSTFRUITS OF ALL THINE
INCREASE:”

We believe  that all of  God’s ministers  must pay Tithe and Offerings also,  (HEBREWS 7:4-5,9)  (4)  “NOW CONSIDER
HOW GREAT THIS MAN WAS, UNTO WHOM EVEN THE PATRIARCH ABRAHAM GAVE THE TENTH OF THE
SPOILS.  (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 CAME OUT OF THE LOINS OF ABRAHAM:  (9)  AND AS I MAY SO SAY,
LEVI ALSO, WHO RECEIVETH TITHES, PAID TITHES IN ABRAHAM.”

We believe that God’s Tithe and Offerings are given to Him and not the ministers of the church, though they have been given the
stewardship over God’s treasury and will be answerable to God, as is the payers of tithe, offerings, and donations.  It is holy
unto the Lord,
 (LEVITICUS 27:30)  “AND ALL THE TITHE OF THE LAND, WHETHER OF THE SEED OF THE LAND,
OR OF THE FRUIT OF THE TREE, IS THE LORD’S:  IT IS HOLY UNTO THE LORD.”

We believe that God does not need our money.  The purpose of Tithe and Offerings is to teach us to give, to share, and to be
thankful,  
(PSALM 24:1)  “THE EARTH IS THE LORD’S, AND THE FULNESS THEREOF; THE WORLD, AND THEY
THAT DWELL THEREIN.”  
(HAGGAI 2:8)  “THE SILVER IS MINE, AND THE GOLD IS MINE, SAITH THE LORD OF
HOSTS.”  (Psalm 50:10-12).

We believe that God wants us to give our Tithe and Offerings with a cheerful and thankful heart-  not grudgingly, (II
CORINTHIANS 9:7)
 “EVERY MAN ACCORDING AS HE PURPOSETH IN HIS HEART, SO LET HIM GIVE; NOT
GRUDGINGLY, OR OF NECESSITY:  FOR GOD LOVETH A CHEERFUL GIVER.”  
(EPHESIANS 5:20)  “GIVING
THANKS ALWAYS FOR ALL THINGS UNTO GOD AND THE FATHER IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST;  
(ACTS 20:35)  “I HAVE SHEWED YOU ALL THINGS, HOW THAT SO LABOURING YE OUGHT TO SUPPORT THE
WEAK, AND TO REMEMBER THE WORDS OF THE LORD JESUS, HOW HE SAID, IT IS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE
THAN TO RECEIVE.”  
(I Thess. 5:18; Exodus 25:2).

We believe that it  is God  who gives  us our wealth and the ability to earn it,
 (DEUTERONOMY 8:18)  “BUT THOU SHALL
REMEMBER THE LORD THY GOD:  FOR IT IS HE THAT GIVETH THEE POWER TO GET  WEALTH,  THAT HE MAY
ESTABLISH HIS COVENANT WHICH HE SWARE UNTO THY FATHERS, AS IT IS THIS DAY.”
 (ECCLESIASTES 5:19)  
“EVERY MAN ALSO TO WHOM GOD HATH GIVEN RICHES AND WEALTH, AND HATH GIVEN HIM POWER TO
EAT THEREOF, AND TO TAKE HIS PORTION, AND TO REJOICE IN HIS LABOUR; THIS IS THE GIFT OF GOD.”

We  believe  that if  we  are  faithful  to  God, he will never forsake us, (PSALM 37:23-25)  (23) “THE STEPS OF A GOOD
MAN ARE ORDERED BY THE LORD:  AND HE DELIGHTETH IN HIS WAY.  (24)  THOUGH HE FALL, HE SHALL NOT
BE UTTERLY CAST DOWN:  FOR THE LORD UPHOLDETH HIM WITH HIS HAND.  (25)  I HAVE BEEN YOUNG, AND
NOW AM OLD; YET HAVE I NOT SEEN THE RIGHTEOUS FORSAKEN, NOR HIS SEED (family) BEGGING BREAD.”  
(HEBREWS 13:5)  “LET YOUR CONVERSATION BE WITHOUT COVETOUSNESS; AND BE CONTENT WITH SUCH
THINGS AS YE HAVE:  FOR HE HATH SAID, I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE.”
