Q: If Gentiles are not required to keep the law (feasts/sabbaths) then why are they required to keep the law (tithes)?

A: The ceremonial feasts and ceremonial sabbaths, and circumcision are all laws that were designed to divide Jews from Gentiles. The New Covenant is clear that those laws are optional.

It’s not a sin to keep our eyes on Yah’s calendar even while we live in the Antichrist system that has changed the calendar. The feasts are not sins to remember and do as a memorial.

However according to Hosea 2:11 the authority of the ceremonial feasts and extra sabbaths have ceased with the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. Also read Colossians 2, Romans 2, and Acts 15.

Hosea 2:11 I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.

Ceremonial laws are not critical to salvation. Why? Because YAH’s expressed prophetic purpose was to Unite Jews with Gentiles under Messiah Yahshuah. Ceremonial and cultural division is no longer His agenda.

In the New Covenant we use the Holy Spirit to make us holy, we don’t need holidays to make us holy. That’s how we have exceeded the righteousness of the Pharisees.

Law of Liberty and Royal Law
Moral laws (Ten Commandments) are eternal and they represent YAHUAH’s Authority of LOVE and Mercy. The Grace of Yashuah’s sacrifice gives us our Salvation and the Power we need to submit to YAH’s Authority and Moral Law (aka Law of Liberty, aka 10 Commandments.]

The 10 Commandments are actually the Father’s Will and Testament, and His Tables of Testimony are in heaven right now (Exodus 31:18, Revelation 11:19).

The 10 can also be summarized in the Royal Law of King Jesus, which summarizes the 10. The Greatest Commandment is to Love God with Everything which is reflected in Commandments 1-5. The 2nd Greatest Commandment is to Love your Neighbor As Yourself which is reflected in Commandments 6-10. The Father and the Son are ONE, and they are in complete agreement.

However Creation Principles (Laws) and Wisdom Principles (Laws) are different. They were established at Creation and they don’t change. Pork is still unclean. Shrimp is still a bottom feeder. Seed time and Harvest, Cold and heat shall not cease.

So when it comes to His Creation Principles: it’s not a matter of if the “law” as a “requirement”. It’s a matter of if you are smart enough to use Gods Principles to your own advantage and fruitfulness in your own life.

If you want apples, you use God’s Creation Wisdom and put an apple seed in the dirt. If you don’t want to grow apples, then you don’t. It’s not a “requirement” – it’s based on your own level of wisdom and energy.

Builders build using the wisdom principles (tools) of building. Engineers build cars and planes according to the God’s wisdom and principles of physics. Agriculturers produce food using the wisdom principles (tools) that God created.

Isaiah 28: 24 Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? doth he open and break the clods of his ground?
25 When he hath made plain the face thereof, doth he not cast abroad the fitches, and scatter the cummin, and cast in the principal wheat and the appointed barley and the rie in their place?
27 For the fitches are not threshed with a threshing instrument, neither is a cart wheel turned about upon the cummin; but the fitches are beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a rod.
28 Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen.
29 This also cometh forth FROM THE LORD of hosts, which is WONDERFUL IN COUNSEL, and EXCELLENT IN WORKING.

YAHUAH is in charge of all natural wisdom, because He is the Creator and Designer of all things, and He understands strategy and counsel in how to do Excellent Work.

If God give you wisdom on how to build a garden, and you use the tools He gave you to do it, then you can get the rewards of it. If God gives you the wisdom to build a house, and you use the tools He gave you to do it, then you get the benefits of building a house.

The tithe, firstfruits, and offerings are similar. They are simply tools that wise people use to build what they want to see in the earth.

If you want to see a Priesthood that is teaching the Word of God, Preaching the Gospel to All Nations, Ministering True Worship to the Most High, and Giving to the Poor, then you use the tools that God gave us to build up that Priesthood.

Tithing is a Creation principle (law) that connects our work on earth to the Priesthood of heaven. It’s not an issue of salvation. You only do it if you want to see the benefits of it.

If you don’t want the fruit, don’t plant the seed. If you don’t want to build up an Assembly (priesthood) of the Most High, then don’t build it.

A lot of people have been wounded spiritually because they tithed to an entertainment, or commerce, or tradition based ministry that taught lies… or that they later found out was greedy and wasn’t ministering to the poor. My prayer is that those people become healed and build or find a balanced and true Ecclessia that they can build with.
