  • I R GATPHOH on 2 Corinthians 9
    Note that God's grace is here tied to an abundance of good works. And note as well, God is able. Walking by the grace of God, living it out day-by-day, hinges on the ability of God. A life of good works is not dependant upon our strength, our power, or our resolve. It hinges on His ability alone. And God is able.

  • D W L on 2 Corinthians 9
    Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. -- Jesus said not to leave the other Tithe undone. If Jesus said it its so.

    Sometimes it is difficult to get the full understanding of a scripture as written in the KJV because it's written in that old English way of speaking. Remember, that's not the original verbiage. I strongly recommend looking at some other versions for a better understanding of some scriptures. God bless!
  • Sheba on 2 Corinthians 9
    Sow bountifully out of love, and you shall reap bountifully. I have experienced this over and over in the time I needed it most. God's rules are permanent and I love his laws. God truly has unspeakable gifts. Be enriched by God's grace.
  • Brianna Vs. 8 on 2 Corinthians 9
    I love sharing this scripture with others. This scriptures gives encouragement that our ability to survive in this world whether it be emotionally, mentally, or even financially is dependent upon our relationship with Him. Whether we are single, poor, or disadvantage Jehovah God's blessing can make us self sufficient in all things. Then we can be truly happy, despite our circumstances.
  • A disciple on 2 Corinthians 9
    '...touching the ministering to the saints," I want to hammer on something again, that is apparently completely unknown or despised by many Churches. If you're wondering why I "hammer" on the Churches; its because they are hugely responsible for the great falling away of many and the overflowing of all bounds and restraint in the world today! TITHINGS AND OFFERINGS ARE FOR THE NEEDS OF THE SAINTS!
  • God39s Property - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 9
    Yes! Absolutely correct. It's not for building wealth in the 'church'; building megachurchs, having worldwide radio stations; etc; etc. It is for the needs of the saints..some of whom are almost preyed on, giving the 'widow's mite' to support these other ventures of 'ministry'.

    Thank you, brother

    I read your comment with interest. Many fail to understand that tithing is not a part of the New Testament church. No where in the New testament did Paul state "tithes." That was in the OT as it involved more than monetary giving. In the NT it is "only" offering" as one profited.
  • Charles Bonsu on 2 Corinthians 9
    Amen.
  • Peter A. Okebukola on 2 Corinthians 9
    Eternal truths- He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
  • A disciple on 2 Corinthians 9
    Mahlon; The Glad Tidings of God and our salvation in Christ has NOTHING to do with Tithing! Have you ever read what Jesus said about false teachers and false prophets "Making Merchandise" of us? A Man of God would more likely go to work and earn his own living, and not say a thing about money; than to give appearance of covetousness. Beware of connecting money with the word of God being preached!
  • Mahlon on 2 Corinthians 9
    Tithing is a Faith Message begins with Abraham not with Jacob. Just because Jacob didn't is not an excuse for us not to do it Malachi teachers the word about tithing. God bless you today
  • Brianna vs. 7 on 2 Corinthians 9
    The Bible definitely encourages the act of gift giving and to be generous with such. I know many people apply this scripture to tithes, but when you read the full chapter it goes beyond that. Paul encouraged Christians here to be generous towards those who renounced material possession to assist people spiritually, and also to be generous towards a "relief" ministry.
  • Steven on 2 Corinthians 9
    Does Genesis 14 establish prelaw tithing as a doctrine? Abraham tithed the spoils of war. And then gave the other 90% back to the King of Sodom. Not according to Numbers 31: 27-30 7 Genesis 28 Jacob vowed to tithe but never did so how does that establish tithing as a doctrine. 2CORN 9:7 Necessity: imposed either by the circumstances, or by law of duty regarding to one's advantage, custom, argument.

  • Iene123 on 2 Corinthians 9
    "..... His unspeakable gift." the Holy Ghost, Acts 2:38. John 15:5 - " ..... he that abideth in me and I IN HIM ..... without me ye can do nothing."
  • Hope - I do not understand the comment "directed to the israelits not anybody else". Those in Achaia and Corinth were belivers not just Israelites. Are you making the distinction between regular tithing and simple helping those in time of need?
  • Verse 15 talks about the indescribable or unspeakable gift that God has given us by the sacrifice of Jesus' life in our behalf.
  • I have been going through verses about tighing, it was indeed directed to the israelits not anybody else, but as you know people takes advantage of other people especially if you are lazy to read scriptures. God loves a cheerfully giver
  • Oriana on 2 Corinthians 9:6
    I think that it shall be a good lesson for children to learn what is a reward of working hard and will encourage others to work hard to get good rewards and if you fail and work a little you will gets conseqences.
  • Lilian on 2 Corinthians 9
    God loves a cheerful giver, giving tithes is our obedience in Christ. God is our supply and all things belongs to him. We must share our blessings and this is the fruit of our blessing from God that we have sowed. God have commanded us to do what he says coz By Giving we can only recieve God 's blessings. We must love one another as he commanded us to do. He who loves Jesus will keep his commandments until rapture. Thanks God for the blood he shed for us.
  • Robert on 2 Corinthians 9:8
    God has given every born again Christian , spirit Filled, all things for the work of the ministry. So we have no excuse to not do all things
  • Seun on 2 Corinthians 9
    Paying Tithe is a contract of God to Abraham children

    I believe in planting seed but I started to ignore Gods words I repent from my sin and start to be obedience to Gods word and I start to see his word activate on my seed I Praise You Lord. Amen
  • Olgar Mbota on 2 Corinthians 9
    since i learnt that sowing of seeds could be either material or any service done in sincerity for God ' seek. I find it a joy and its bearing fruits unto my God. Bless the Lord my soul.
  • BETTY ASANTEWAA ARTHUR on 2 Corinthians 9:7
