Most people are oblivious to any problems they may have with God, for they are blinded by their membership and inclusion in their own little religious world. If all is well in their religious world, they reason, all is well with God.

I want you to carefully consider this question: When you read the bible, do you merely read the words, or do you read, study, meditate, pray and THINK upon the word? Do you imagine yourself as living in the biblical setting? Do you roll the scene forward to today, and change the setting and the backdrops to accommodate modern technology? Do you try to catch the principles in the old stories and apply them to your life today?

Consider this incredible recent teaching from Bob Neumann:

“For 40 YEARS a mass of people had been camping out in one of the worst habitats on the whole world. In the CENTER of THEIR ENCAMPMENT is a WHITE TENT....and above this WHITE TENT rose up into the air a massive pillar of "cloud" during the day. High enough to be seen for miles and miles and miles. Even better, when night falls....THE CLOUD CHANGES TO one can not notice it.”

Imagine that you are one of the “ite” tribes, and you have sent spies out into the Wilderness of Sinai. You have heard there is a nation out there, under the stars. There are many stories about them. Your spies report back what they have seen as they have lifted their heads just over the rocks at night to behold the millions who are dwelling in tents in the valley below, with a pillar of fire stretching up to the skies over a tent in the middle of the camp. Don’t you think those neighboring “ite” tribes knew they had a problem on their hands?

That is what I am talking about! Did you think about the “ite” neighbors who looked at that cloud and pillar of fire for forty years? Or, were your thoughts restricted to the very strictest sense of what was written?

Those “ite” tribes knew they were in trouble. How about you? But, you say you have seen no pillar of fire or parted sea. You see no evidence that God has begun to lift His hand toward you.

The word of God has many admonishments and warnings to a group of people who are known in the bible as “the wicked”. Of course, no good religious person pays much attention to these warnings, because no good religious person would possibly qualify as one of “the wicked”, could they? Surely, only the “ites” could be wicked, right?

Do you study just exactly what a wicked person is, and what he does? Do you study it only in the strictest sense, or do you really pray and THINK about it? Are you in any danger of being regarded as a wicked person by God?

What is it that leads to biblical wickedness? Is it possible for religious people to be wicked?

Consider this section from Isaiah 66
3 He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

According to Ussher, this passage was written about 698 B.C.. Isaiah wrote it to the people of God. Their sacrifices had become abominations to God. Their God ordained religion had become a stench to God. Instead of praise and blessing from God, they were set to receive AN AWFUL HOWL….a ROAR out of Zion by the Lion of Judah. Why?

These people were holding all the right meetings, and making all the prescribed sacrifices, but something was dreadfully wrong, because God had now spoken to them by using the harshest language He ever used in scripture. Isaiah said that God called, but no one answered; God spoke, but they did not hear.

Now, roll that one principle forward to our day.

I do not seriously believe there is one assembly with forty or more souls meeting there, called a “Church” in the United States of America, that is anything but wicked in God’s sight! That is right! Not even ONE.

Many have argued with me. They tout this assembly or that assembly, and say it is pretty good, or not too bad. They say they are a remnant assembly. They say they listen to prophecy. They say they do not collect tithes. I don’t believe it. NOT ONE! I do not believe there is even ONE who hears the word of God and takes obedient action on what they have heard to obey that word.

Where did this start in scripture…these pronouncements upon the people of God? This was really the first hint of this, coming forth from the Lord in scripture. Ussher had the date of it at around 787 B.C., from the prophet Amos, chapter 5
21 I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
22 Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.
23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.

Again, all the right moves are made by the religious, but God is not impressed. Why? How had religion failed God’s people?

Proverbs 15 says that when things digress to this point, God is REALLY dealing with wicked people. When God rejects a sacrifice or offering, the reason is that God is regarding that person as a wicked person :
8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.
10 Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.

And, from Psalm 50
16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son.
21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

Wicked people hate instruction, follow their own counsel and do not want to listen when God is speaking about things that make them uncomfortable. Now, are beginning to see how this applies to our age, and our churches? Does it apply to you?

Forty years ago, a Father could seriously and joyfully refer to his son as bright and gay. Something has happened to the language: hijack. A certain word once had a noble meaning, but now, that is no longer the case.

Twenty years ago, the sighting of a rainbow caused one to think of God and the flood. Now, it is the national symbol for gay pride. What happened?

Let us consider the words tithe, tithing and tenth.

Paul did not consider it necessary to write these words once in 13 epistles penned by him. He said NOT ONE WORD about tithing. Paul pronounced a double curse on anyone who would add to his gospel. His gospel was to the Gentiles. The gentiles were never told once to TITHE. They were told to store up and give, but not to tithe. Where would YOU look in the bible to find Paul’s gospel to the gentiles?

Some churches today make tithing a legal condition for membership, but all of them uniformly teach that you MUST bring the whole tithe into the local church. How did we arrive at this place?

The laws regarding tithing had a noble use in Israel as a part of the Jewish law. The eight tithes of scripture are discussed in about twenty old testament scriptures. This is hardly a major old testament doctrine, but it has been hijacked and turned into an abominable new testament law by that abomination known as “church” in America, and this doctrine has been exported around the world.

I tell you, as a prophet of the Lord Jesus, that GOD HAS DECLARED WAR on this 90/10 false teaching.

Most of you know that I have written and preached extensively about this. If you have not read my other works, I can send you the links.

Those of you who are “tithing” to your local church religiously are almost certainly committing an abomination before the Lord your God. You have brought yourselves under a double curse, uttered by Paul, and you simply CANNOT see it, can you. You think that I am a madman and have lost my mind. Ignore me at your peril.

Ironically, tithers are almost uniformly against free will giving, and they do not give to support the poor and orphans. They find many thoughtful sounding reasons for doing so. They methodically stroke their tithing checks to their local churches, once per week, in performance of a duty that God never gave them, but they ignore the widows, orphans and the poor, whom Jesus ordered them to support.

They never will support a missionary, when Jesus himself gave them the great commission to take the gospel to other nations and ethnic groups. Because these people tithe but NEVER GIVE, they can never have anything given to them by God: they can never truly reap from God. Because they sow only into dead soil, they reap a harvest of death.

Oh, they may reap a FAUX HARVEST from their idol, but it is not a lasting harvest with eternal reward. In the same way, Catholics who pray to the blessed virgin receive a FAUX blessing, for a season. God will slicken the pathway to hell by sending the promised strong delusion to the wicked. And so, those who TITHE legally can never receive by faith. You can NEVER truly be blessed as true faith givers are blessed.

Some will argue. They say they gave when the African came to their church, and he was supporting forty orphans and showed the pictures. He didn’t even have a car. I tell you that you were manipulated. The African sold his car in Africa before he came to America so that he might appear more pitiable and pathetic in front of the Americans. You think I am joking? I am telling you about an actual case of an African orphanage that relies on American support. I want to know: have you given in response to God’s voice, or have you responded to manipulation?

Some of you think this is too strong. You are wrong. I will be given stronger words to denounce all of this by the grace of God.

You legal tithers: I challenge you. Have you given to orphans, widows, missionaries and the poor? I mean, have you really given by faith, and not by manipulation of your feelings? Have you given in response to the voice of the Lord? How will you ever become a true giver while you are still under a double curse? You must break free of this legal tithing curse so that you may begin to have the discernment necessary to recognize when you are being manipulated in your feelings.

Study, really study the scriptures that refer to our time: the end of the age. What you find described there is a hijacked church that has lost love, and has no faith. The hijacked church, according to scripture has a form of godliness, but denies the power thereof.

Finally, the hijacked church that has heard some of the word, and has had some power, has refused the full counsel of God. A few, very few churches in America, will sit still and listen to the speaking of a true prophet, but WILL THEY DO ANYTHING? Will they change? Will they prepare at all for coming trouble? In doing so, the hijacked church has become wicked in the sense of Isaiah 66. The hijacked church has uniformly rejected the prophets of God. It always has, and always will.

4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

The harlot: the hijacked church, lives from the lifeblood of its’ hijacked tithe. I do not believe there is one……NOT ONE assembly of greater than FORTY persons in America that will invite me: Stephen L. Bening and Randy McKee to come to instruct them on the BIBLICAL TITHE. Why? Because they do not really want to know the truth. I have not been invited even ONCE since God gave me the true revelation on this one year ago, and I do not expect to receive ONE American invitation. Meanwhile, I have more African invitations than I can reach in several years time.

I challenge you. Invite any two of the four of us: Stephen Bening, Randy McKee, Joseph Cook or Robert Neumann. We will hold five days of meetings: four times per day. That is 20 meetings in five days in your assembly.

You say that is impossible. That is what we do in Africa. The Africans want the truth. That is why the scepter to lead the church has been given to them, and taken away from the church in America. A small market town of 1,000 people turned out a minimum of 200 people for each meeting.

The message on the EIGHT TITHES OF SCRIPTURE took me THREE HOURS to deliver in Kapkateny, Western Province, Kenya. Not a single person left the meeting from fatigue. All the pastors were there, or so I was told. They begged me to give the full teaching, and not to hold back because of any time constraints. Many of the pastors in the leadership of the churches at Kapkateny have publicly repented of this abominable practice, and the revival fire of God is sweeping their region.

Can you even imagine 200 Americans, gathered in the largest American city, let alone a small town, sitting still to listen to a TRUE message about tithing for THREE HOURS?

Why does it take THREE HOURS? Consider that I must deal with TWENTY SCRIPTURES, and how the hijacked harlot church has twisted many of them into the resulting false legal doctrine we find today. Consider that to understand the true biblical tithe, you must know biblical history.

Some African areas are receiving correction and the truth. Others are continuing on in their error. God is marking those who repent for blessing.

Begin to give in this order, after you pray and are led by the Lord: 1) Orphans, 2) Widows, 3) Missionaries 4) The poor and 5) Works of God.

Stop giving a tithe to a local church by duty, rote, habit or law.

If you are holding a church assembly, repent of collecting tithes. Destroy all envelopes with the word TITHE written on them. The word has been hijacked. You cannot use it without causing misunderstanding in the minds of the people.

Unless you are certain that your assembly will listen and hearken unto the full counsel of God, get out of that assembly.

If your assembly is making no preparations for hard times in America, you should get out of that assembly.

You will be spiritually defiled by gathering together with people in a defiled assembly that is under the judgement of God. It is better for you to be alone with Jesus and clean by His blood, in your prayer closet, than for you to be spiritually defiled in a hijacked assembly of abomination.

1 Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.
2 Israel shall cry unto me, My God, we know thee.
3 Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him.
4 They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.
5 Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocency?
6 For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces.
7 For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.
8 Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure.
9 For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers.
10 Yea, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes.
11 Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.
12 I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.
13 They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat it; but the LORD accepteth them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt.
14 For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.
