Church Tithe and Offering Spreadsheet

Church Tithe and Offering Spreadsheet – This is not a very much discussed subject, but it is of tremendous importance for the life of the church. Many people have problems in the financial (economic) area, for not contributing or contributing in the wrong way
Unstable people in their tenth, tend to be unstable in their financial life. People who have difficulty giving, have difficulty receiving.
Example: “If the person is with the hand closed to give, it will not receive. For God to put something in his hand, it has to be open.”

THE WORD OF GOD SAYS “It is more blessed to give than to receive” Acts 20:35
We need to understand that our commitment to the body is also a financial commitment.
There are still many wrong approaches to this issue and much that needs to be restored. Some sin for the excess, others for the scarce, and others for the profit, etc.

TITHES

WHAT IS THE TITHE?
The concept is simple: tenth or 10%
It consists in returning to the lord the tenth part (or sea 10%), of all that he does not give.

WHY DOES GOD WANT 10%?

1. Because he is merciful and good
? Whose is all the gold, all the silver, and all the money? Of the lord
? Whose is the world and all that in it hay? Of the lord
We plant, harvest, work, receive, live, and breathe in the world that is the Lord. And he only asks instead 10% of what he receives.

2. He wants to produce in us faith and obedience
God does not need money, he does not need our money, but he wants us to be faithful and obedient. Carefree for money and attentive to the needs of the church and each other.
For that we need to have faith, he cares for us, to depend on him for our sustenance. We need to know that our livelihood comes from the Lord. He is our providence always.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?

Dt.14: 22
“You shall surely tithe all the grain that your field yields each year.”
The tithe belongs to the lord, it is his property, and not ours.
(This is a fundamental concept).
Tithing is not part of our income we give to the Lord. It is the 10% belonging to God, of everything that gives us gives. It’s his.
We do not give, but we do return the tithe to the Lord. (It is owned by him). That is why we should not give of our surplus, and of the firstfruits of our fruits.

Pv. 3: 9.
Tithing is a matter of fidelity and obedience to the Lord. When we are not faithful in the tithe and we use the money that is of the lord for other things, we are robbing to God.

Mal. 3: 8-9.
Will man rob God? For you have stolen me. And you said, what have we stolen from you? In your tithes and offerings.
You are cursed with curses, because you, the whole nation, I have stolen. ”
When we do not give the tithe, we bring a curse to ourselves.
Sometimes people do not give the tithe and end up spending with things that do not feed. And in this way everything they earn goes where no one knows.

Some do not give the tithe because:
? Because there is never enough, (more, not to give the leftover).
? Why they are always in the financial difficulty, and this comes from the retention of tithe, or that the tithe is a magic formula to reverse any financial crisis.
But there is a principle of faith and obedience, to bring tithing we will be blessed. (Reverence, humiliation).

Mal. 3: 10-11
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, and there was food in my house, and prove me now in this, saith the LORD of hosts, if I do not open the windows of heaven, and pour out on the two blessings until it overflows.
I will rebuke the devourer for you, and not destroy the fruit of the earth, neither shall the vine in the field be barren, saith the Lord of hosts. ”
Whenever you obey a principle of God, we are blessed: in this case it is not different.

The Lord says that:
• Will open the windows of the heavens
• Rebuke the devourer
• It will make our land bear fruit.

This is the consequence of faith and obedience.
This text also shows us to whom we must give the tithes.

The text says “my house”.
What is the house of God?
? Church
? Treasure house.

We take the tithes to the church, from there, the responsibility of administering these resources is left to the people indicated by the ministry.

We will not go into details of how tithes are distributed. But we see in A. T. that he had a specific purpose:

It was for the sustenance of the Levites: people who looked after the house of God.
Dt. 26:12
Nm.18: 21

When the people of Israel came to the promised land, the land was divided among the tribes of Israel. And the Levites received nothing. God prepared it for himself. They would only work for the Lord, and the Lord himself would take care of them. That is why God reversed the tithes for them.
The people of Israel are a figure of the church: and the Levites represent the people who serve in the house of God, that is, the presbyters, deacons, and others who govern and administer the church.
Tithes are used for all purposes that glorify the name of the Lord, for the salvation of souls, to expand (spread) the work of God, for the maintenance (pay rent) of the house of the Lord.

LAW AND GRACE
Some people say:
“This tithe thing comes from the law, and as I am free from the law I do not need to give.”
This is a great deception, for the law establishes the tithe, and places it as a duty (no one should give the tithe out of obligation). More tithe exists much more before the law.

THE CONCEPT OF TITHE DOES NOT COME FROM THE LAW.
• We see that in the beginning the tithe already existed in Eden (fidelity)
• We also see that 700 years before the law. Priest of the Most High God (figure of Jesus).

Gn.14: 18-20
• Melchizedek was king, did not need to be supported by Abraham
• Abraham gave the tithe in recognition of sovereignty and authority of Melchizedek (reverence).
• It was not God’s requirement, He gave it spontaneously.
• Later, his grandson Jacob followed his example and gave the tithe when he had the revelation of the house of God.

Gn.28: 22.
The law regulates tithing, but the principle of tithe is much deeper, and it does not depend on the law.
Grace always exceeds the law. The old covenant (covenant) was based on the law of Moses.
But the new covenant is based on grace.
The new covenant (covenant) is much, more superior to the old one.
In the sermon on Mount Christ he makes a comparison between the commandments Moses transcribed (law), and his commandments (grace).

Law
 
Grace
Homicide was prohibited
Mt. 5: 21-23
It was forbidden even to anger
Adultery was forbidden
Mt. 5: 27-28
It is forbidden even to look impure.
Love of one’s neighbor is demanded, but
hatred toward the enemy is allowed .
Mt. 5: 43-44
Love was demanded of the neighbor, the brothers, and pray for those who persecute you.
Tithing was required
 
Mt. 3: 8, Lk. 14: 25-33

 

It demands life and all that it possesses.

 

Thus we see that by grace, God does not require 10%. He demands everything.
The least we can give is tithing, we would say the least of the least … but by grace we are free to give more.
Mt.5: 20
“For I say unto you, That if your righteousness be greater than that of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.”
The deepest meaning of tithe is:
? “God is not Lord of only 10% of my finances, He is Lord of all (100%).
THE BLESSINGS THAT FOLLOW THE TITHE
What we want to prove here, is not why you. Give the tithe that God will enrich it, or that all your financial problems will be solved. It is not for this purpose that we should give the tithe.
What we want to demonstrate is that this is a principle of God, and by obeying this principle of God, we are blessed.
Pv. 3: 9
“Honor the Lord with your good things, and with the firstfruits of all your fruits.”
Rm. 11:16
“If the firstfruits are holy, it is also the remaining mass, and if the root is holy, so are the branches.”
Returning the tithe we are honoring God, and consequently sanctifying all our fruits.
We give a part to God and he makes prosper (increase) the rest.
Mt. 3: 10-11
“And the ax is already set at the root of the trees, therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire.
And I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but he that cometh after me, whose shoe I am not worthy to bear, is mightier than I, he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire. “
It says that we must try (to experience) the lord. He will open the windows of the heavens, and pour out the blessings without measure.
• The faithful taxpayer does not pass needs.
• God does what little prosper (increase) and be sufficient.
OFFERINGS
Offering is giving.
In the Bible its concept is linked to the idea of ​​sacrifice.
? It is giving something that costs us, which is valuable to us.
2Sm. 24: 22-24
“And Araunah said unto David, Let my lord the king take and offer that which is good in his sight: behold, oxen for the burnt offering, and the threshing instruments and the yoke of oxen for wood.
All this, O king, Araunah gives to the king.
And Araunah said to the king, “May the LORD your God be propitious to you.”
And the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will buy it for a price, for I will not offer to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.” Then David bought the age and the oxen for fifty silver cycles. “
We must not offer to the Lord something that costs nothing to us, (eg, the wise men).
In the Bible we find several types of offerings:
• For sin
• Peaceful
• Release
• Thanksgiving
• Of incense
• From the first fruits
• For redemption, etc.
Example: Lv. 6: 24-30
These offerings or sacrifices were required with great exigency and always to obtain a forgiving gift.
• It was not any type of offering
• Not everyone could offer
• Only the high priest offered, and through him, the forgiveness was granted to the people.
All blessings, redemptions, and forgiveness of sins, we already have in Christ. That is why all these kinds of offerings and sacrifices were undone by the work of Jesus on the cross.
There were still two kinds of offerings among the people of God that were not associated with obtaining any blessing, or forgiveness of sins, or even religious ritual, but a principle of giving, of contributing.
That is why they were not undone and are stressed in the New Testament, practiced by the disciples of the early church and practiced to this day.
VOLUNTARY OFFERINGS
Voluntary offering is the one we offer to the Lord (or the needy, as the Lord), spontaneously, by a free will.
Dt. 16:10
“And thou shalt make the solemn feast of the weeks unto the Lord thy God, from the abundance of thy hand shall it be, according as the Lord thy God hath blessed thee.”
Ex. 35: 21-22
“And every man came to whom his heart stirred, and every one to whom his spirit gave him a willing offering, to the Lord for the work of the tabernacle of meeting, and for all his work, and for the holy garments.
Men and women came, all the volunteers of the heart, and brought chains and earrings, rings and bracelets, and all kinds of gold jewelry, and they all made offerings of gold to the Lord. “
1cr. 29: 6-8, 13-17
“Then the heads of families, and the princes of the tribes of Israel, heads of thousands and hundreds, with the administrators of the ascending of the king, volunteered.
And five thousand talents and ten thousand drachmas of gold, ten thousand talents of silver, and eighteen thousand talents of brass, and five thousand talents of iron, were given into the service of the house of God.
Now therefore, our God, we praise and praise thy glorious name.
For who am I, and who is my people, that we might willingly offer such things? For everything is yours, and we give you what is received from your hand.
For we, strangers and upstarts, are before thee as all our fathers, and our days upon the earth, as a shadow that endureth not.
O LORD our God, all this abundance which we have prepared to build a house for thy holy name, is of thy hand, and all is thine.
I know, my God, that you search the hearts and that righteousness pleases you, that is why I have willingly offered you all this with my heart’s righteousness, and now I have seen with joy that your people, gathered here now, have given For you spontaneously. “
HIGHLIGHTED OFFERINGS
The raised offering is the one raised with a specific purpose.
In the Old Testament, they were used primarily for the construction of the temple (1cr.29). In the New Testament, primarily to meet the needs of the disciples.
