The topic of tithing and giving has been much debated and there are many different interpretations of the Scripture regarding this topic. Both individuals and organizations have twisted the scriptures regarding tithing for their own benefit. The purpose of this study is to see what the Scripture teaches about tithing and how we should apply it in our lives. We are going to look into pre-mosaic tithing, mosaic tithing and what we can learn from Y’shua and history. What does Abba Yahovah require from us with regards to tithing and giving?

Can words be measured? Can words be weighed?
What is the measure of my words?
6 Let Him weigh me with accurate scales, And let יהוה know my integrity.
What does weighing and scales have to do with words or with integrity? Picture an old scale, maybe an ancient scale that uses weights for measurement. Now let us say Abba YHVH’s instructions are the weights against which our words are weighed. Put the Word of YHVH into the one weighing pan and your words in the other. How do your words measure against His Word? Would you not like your words to be in perfect balance with YHVH’s. Is that at all possible?
During this time of year we hear a lot of discussions as to whether or not we should join in the celebration of Rosh haShanah (Head of the new Year). We all know that Exodus 12:2 specifically tells us that the beginning of the year is in Aviv (spring time). Yet, we hear some very convincing tales as to why the Scriptures actually allows for more than one new year (like we have today – calendar year, fiscal year, school year, etc…) In this article I will proof to you that the Scriptures only refer to one new year and it is not Rosh haShanah on 1 Tishri!
What does scripture tell us about the first of the fall feasts? How much of what you have learned comes from men and how much from YHVH? We have mixed commandments and traditions so much that it becomes very difficult to tell the one from the other. As we get closer to Yom T’ruah it is good to look at what YHVH commanded regarding this moed. If we know what is commanded we can determine if the traditions are the rules of men or a valuable teaching aid. Every feast is a rehearsal and an opportunity to learn more as to how YHVH wants us to keep this moed with and for Him. We will also have a look at the prophetic significance of this feast. What does this feast have to do with the second coming of our Messiah?
