Slipping Due To Hearing Problems

Tithes
Slipping Due To Hearing Problems Three elderly gentlemen are sitting on a park bench.

#1: It's windy today.
#2: No, today is Thursday.
#3: So am I. Let's go get a drink from that fountain.
#1: I don't want to sing on the mountain.
#2: What did you say was sinful sounding?

The three men in the illustration enjoyed each others company that windy day. Yet because they were not listening carefully to one another's words, their words were lost with each other.

So it is with many people today.

Hebrews 2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

What is it we have heard? That the tithe was for the children of Israel.

Leviticus 27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

The command to tithe was not given to Gentiles. So many have allowed themselves to be deceived that God expects them to tithe due to a hearing problem.

Mark 8:18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?

Because of hearing problems, the saints have let the things they have heard slip.

The Word of God reveals the tithe was agricultural.

Leviticus 27:30-33 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. And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD. He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.

Mark 8:18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?

Because of hearing problems, the saints have let the things they have heard slip.

Revelation 2:29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Acts 15:28 For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;

Mark 8:18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?

Because of hearing problems, the saints have let the things they have heard slip.

God said the tithes were agricultural, but because of hearing problems people attempt to tithe money.
God said the tithes were for the children of Israel, but because of hearing problems, Gentile Converts were easily deceived into believing that God expects them to tithe.
God said the tithes were to be eaten by Levites, widows, orphans, foreigners in Israel, the tither and his family. But because of hearing problems, Gentile Converts believe that they are to give tithe in the form of money to a Church at the detriment of caring for self and others.
So many in the Church today have a great hearing problem. And because of their hearing problem, they do not understand what God says when He speaks to them in His Word concerning what He said tithes were.

Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:

So many today, because the will not hear the Word of the Lord, because they will not study the Word of the Lord, because they will not search the Scriptures to see if what their pastors have told them is so, will one day find that they will not be able to hear the Word of the Lord at all. God will allow the Word to be taken away from them. And all they will have left is memories.

Are you memorizing the Word of God? David said, "Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee." Commit yourself to the studying of the Word. Commit yourself to searching the Scriptures. If you don't learn it, when it is taken away, what will you have left?

So many today try to quote verses, such as, "He that spareth the rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes." Yet, the majority, though believing they know what that verse says, so often misquote it. "He that spareth the rod spoils the child" is often the quote that is given.

How much more of the Bible do they misquote? A misquote is not the Word of God, my friends. It is the result of one who does not hear God's Word. Just as the words that the three elderly gentlemen were speaking were fruitless due to their hearing problems, God's Word is fruitless to the one who will not hear.
