PROPHETIC MESSAGEPreachers Burden God’s Sheep
Lev.27:30; Ezra 7:24; Prov. 22:16; I Cor. 6:17; 7:23; 12:25What is this bleating of distress I hear daily, proceeding forth from thetroubled hearts of the overworked, overburdened sheep of Mypasture?Many cry out unto me in tears, “O Lord, please forgive me. I stole thetithe this month. My children had to eat. We needed a roof over ourheads. I just didn’t have the faith to give the whole amount. But Iswear I’ll make it up to You!Just who is stealing from whom, though? Did I ever once elevate theeducated, pulpit orator above the rest of My body to be a tribute-taker? Where did this devilish drivel come from? Are you not ALLappointed to be priests and kings in Christ Jesus? Search theScriptures. NOT ONCE will you discover any commandment to levy aten per cent church tax on the wages of the poor, not even under theOld Covenant! The true Biblical tithe consisted only of suchcommodities as fruit, vegetables, grain, honey, olive oil and theincrease in livestock, and ONLY from the Land of Israel. And titheswere NEVER taken from the High Priest and his family.Are you not made one spirit with your High Priest Christ the Lord, Whodwells in your hearts by faith? Who would dare place himself orherself in the shoes of being the High Priest of the church, due tributeand paying none himself? And who would dare say ye are not My sonsand My daughters, of My own priestly line, who are not subject to thetithe? This babylonish religious system in the earth has no right to putMy children under a yoke of bondage and fear in order to keep themas slaves and extort money out of them with unwarranted threats of my judgment! Instead, it is those who profiteer off fear who haveevery reason to shake in fear of My vengeance on the Day of Judgment!MEN place you under fear of stealing from some religious system of their own devising which I never did ordain. But they are stealingfrom YOU!! They themselves decide to place the congregation under aheavy burden of debt to build a new palace “in God’s honor”. Whilemultitudes are perishing, religious overlords construct expensivemonuments to their own glory, not to be outdone by the gorgeousedifice built by a competing “house of worship”.
