Truth About Tithing: Sunday Morning Stick-up?
Editor’s Note: Do you want to know the truth about tithing? Will a man rob God’s people? Read on. As a Pastor’s son I have been in Church literally all of my life including on the weekdays for private Christian school. I have always questioned tithing in my mind even though I gave because I didn’t want to be “cursed with a curse” as the Preachers say.
But the Apostle Paul instructed certain members of the Church of Corinth to set aside money for his income so that when he arrived, there will be no need to collect money from the congregation. (1 Cor. 16:1-4 NKJV) Can you find the word “tithe” in the New Testament? Did Jesus pay tithes? He paid the temple taxes. (Matthew 17:24-27 NKJV)
Sad enough, we have an article written as a result of CNN’s investigation into tithing as if we as the Body of Christ don’t have enough reasons the world won’t come to Church. Take a look:

For many conservative evangelicals, Jerusalem is not about politics. It is not about peace plans or Palestinians or two-state solutions. It is about prophecy. About the Bible. And, most certainly, it is about the end-times.
History of Christmas
Christmas is both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon. For two millennia, people around the world have been observing it with traditions and practices that are both religious and secular in nature. Christians celebrate Christmas Day as the anniversary of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, a spiritual leader whose teachings form the basis of their religion. Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending church, sharing meals with family and friends and, of course, waiting for Santa Claus to arrive. December 25–Christmas Day–has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1870.
Is Yeshua Hebrew For Jesus?
Question: “Is Yeshua Hamashiach the proper Hebrew name/title for Jesus Christ?”
Answer: Yeshua Hamashiach means “Jesus the Messiah.” The name Jesus is the Greek form of the Hebrew name Yeshua, which is the shortened form of the name Yehoshua. From this Hebrew word we also get the name Joshua (Joshua 5:15) or Hoshea (Numbers 13:8; Deuteronomy 33:44). The name means “salvation” and is found more than often throughout the Old Testament. This is the name from which we get the Greek word Iesous, prounounced “yay-sus,” or as we say it, “Jesus.”
In the Word Of The Day, God speaks only to His Churches in Revelation 3:6, because by this time, most of the world has rejected the Gospel and turned a deaf ear to His Words. Therefore God prepares His church for what’s to come, by making it clear that they better listen. And those that do listen are granted extra blessings by doing so in Revelation 1:3 KJV.

The Truth About Christmas
Does Christmas really celebrate the birthday of Jesus? Was He born on December 25th? Did Paul, the apostles, and the early Church of the New Testament celebrate Christmas? Do you know what the BIBLE says about the Christmas tree?

Deal With The Devil: K Michelle
I was watching the Soul Train Awards tonight and could not believe what I saw! K Michelle’s new album cover featuring the colors, signs, and symbols that all signal that she has signed a deal with the devil in exchange for fame and fortune. Now as a graphic designer I can surely explain the elements used in the cover design was no accident as it passed across the screen of the executives at Atlantic records who approved the artists layout. To better understand what you are seeing you must understand the occult’s signs and symbol’s that are used to communicate silently in the spirit realm.
