The word 'all' there is the Hebrew word for 'whole', and the same Hebrew word is translated as 'whole' in verse 9. Some Commentaries seem to look at it as meaning 'whole' in verse 10 as well, and some versions translate it that way:bugala wrote:[kjv]Mal 3:8[/kjv] "...Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes AND OFFERINGS."
[kjv]Mal 3:10[/kjv] "Bring ye ALL the tithes..."
I believe this "All the tithes" refers to including the offerings as well, not just tithes.
What do you mean by 'holy spirits advice' ? I visited one church where they said that the way that you can know what God would have you give is by thinking of a number, doubling it, and then adding a little bit more, which seems sort of arbitrary and unbiblical to me.bugala wrote:To put it extremely short, is that you need to follow Holy Ghosts advice on where to give and how much. And by the way, if Holy Ghost instructs you to give more money than you have, then you havent followed his Financial plan for your life.
One thing that stuck out to me in the first video was that he said that if you are a christian with cancer, that you are already healed. I don't see how there is any support for that when the bible teaches people with sickness to deal with it, like having medicine( i.e. a little wine for your stomachs sake, etc.) , or having elders pray for you. But I guess that is a subject for another thread.bugala wrote: In this video: http://www.awmi.net/financial_seminar Paul Milligan points out
He didn't set a specific amount, like what is commanded in the Old Testament (tithe equalling 1/10th). Keep in mind that the Israelite community had a passel of Levites (priests, temple helpers, etc) to support, who did not work the land, or do business like the rest of the people, whereas the church did not have a specific group of people that they had to support 24/7.Now, in regard to the collection being made for God's people: you are to do the same as I directed the congregations in Galatia to do. Every week, on the Sabbath, each of you should set some money aside, according to his resources, and save it up; so that when I come I won't have to do fundraising. (1 Cor. 16:1-2)
