The Rainbow Pledge of God's Grace

Bruce White uses the rainbow to prove that TITHING is still God's Law. However, the rainbow pledges rain for the good, the bad and the ugly. God does not bring a curse upon those who do not tithe but upon those who usurp the role of priests but who refuse to teach the Word as it has been taught. (not checked yet)

DON'T BELIEVE IT: When you see the rainbow remember that God isn't clergy and does not threaten you with a curse if you don't give HIM 10% of your CASH which not even those under destructive law ever demanded. The widow's mite says that God will bless your sacrificial love but He will TEAR DOWN the houses of any den of robbers who will accept it. The Jubilee began getting you by bare teeth and dragging you back PAST the cross. The musical worship teams restored (according to Catholic Encyclopedia) the Levitical Sounders during service as "hard bondage." That is ok for Catholics since they crucify Christ afresh in the Eucharist. It is ok for those selling Believer's Baptism because they must live under law and have Jesus personally die for them. But it is not ok for the church of Christ which spewed clergy out of its mouth and with it the Law of Giving which violates 1 Corinthians 16:2

You had better go to Benny Hinn to get this POT!

("The Rainbow Pledge of God's Grace") ("Tithing, Clergy Robbing Laity") ("It Is More Blessed to Give Than to Receive") ("Falling from Grace through Tithing") ("I Corinthians 16:2")

Notes from a recordes sermon on the demand to tithe by C. Bruce White at Madison Church of Christ in the Nashville area. Rough notes from the sermon are here.

Bruce White: Now, "tithing" is referred to in the Bible about 50 times, and "tithe" 13 times, "tithes" (plural) 13 times, and a "tenth" 45 times. The New Testament refers to tithing in the likes of Jesus in Luke 15:12, with the Pharisees in Matthew 23:23, and with Abraham in Hebrews 7 and verse 2.

So Abraham was tithing long before Moses gave the Law. And ... and ... and so tithing has been a thing with God all along.

Now, someone may think that, say, "Well, I don't tithe; I don't believe in tithing because we're not under the Law and [uh] we're not under the Old Testament; that's the Old Testament."

Listen, 1st Corinthians 6:10, "There'll be no thieves ... to inherit the kingdom of God [passage not audible, KJV by d.c.]."

We noted in the series on Babylon tithing that Abraham knew about tithing in Babylon. There is some historical connection to an Abraham in the Babylonian tablets showing him renting lands. All people tithed because the lands as in later Canaan belonged to the gods. Rather than just assume title to property you paid a tithe to the temple state. In exchange for that the temple stored surplus grain, your money and did many civil things including RELIGION which was always CIVIL duty.

Melchizedek was the king of Salem or at David's time a Jebusite high place. Therefore, one owed a tithe to the king--priests. Melchizedek is like Jesus only in that he is without beginning of days.

Annanias and Saphira were LIARS because they claimed to give all but gave half. However, God tells them that when they sold their own property it was ALL THEIRS. That means that through Peter he REPUDIATED the modern stealing through tithing.

Others were called thieves because they pretended the seat of Moses and did it for MONEY.

And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the market places, Mark 12:38

And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts: Mark 12: 39

Which devour widows houses, and for a pretense make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation. Mark 12: 40

Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses seat: Mt.23:2

All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. Mt 23:3

For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on mens shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. Mt 23:4

Strange and prophetic: these were the professional preachers but Jesus refused to speak TO them or THROUGH them because they had no love for the truth. The proof was that they were postmodern: they made up their own songs and sermons to FIT THE TIMES. Jesus called them liars because they like the Devil their father "spoke on their own."

God never calls poor people thieves: only the self-selected clergy who claim the office of EVANGELIST but who have ugly and tender feed and refuse to GO to collect their support stolen from widows.

Some think that they cuddled up to widows and got them to will their property to the "church" and therefore swindled the children out of their inheritance.

Bruce White: Let me ask you a question. And you ... you think about this at home. Sometimes [~~] after a rain shower the sun comes out and we get a rainbow in the shower, do you think that's just a happenstance of nature? Do rainbows mean anything to you? [~~~~~~] God said [~~] destroy the world again by a flood, isn't it? Where you learned that? John the Baptist preached that in the New Testament? The book of Hebrews? Where did you get that?

That's the Old Testament.

That was true centuries before the Old Testament was written. It has nothing to do with religion. Many people burned children in sacrifice as in Jerusalem but that had nothing to do with their religion.

Bruce White: We still believe today that God [~] promised [~] the flood [~] the sign of the rainbow.

Well, [~] the Old Testament.

Some of you got out last spring and you plowed your little topsoil and you buried little seeds and all; why did you do that? Well, because you know that it's going to grow up and in the fall you're going to be able to produce [~~~~~]. Where you learned that?

That is a fact but it is fiction that there is gold at the end of the rainbow.

I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Ge.9:13

But the TITHE is not a sign of an eternal covenant. It was rent on the free lands ONLY in Canaan and only to the tribe of LEVI.

Those from the tribe of Judah never used Dr. White's theology to claim the tithe for them. Why not? Why, they knew that it was limited to the tribe of Levi.

When the Jews left the land of Canaan they did not tithe based on the COVENANT MADE WITH LEVI.

Why doesn't Bruce White have someone carry the Ark of the Covenant?

At that time the Lord separated the tribe of Levi,

to bear the ark of the covenant of the Lord,

to stand before the Lord to minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day. De.10:8

You can even get killed for trying to steal someone's covenant.

God told Abraham to sacrifice his son:

that's in the Bible.

Why doesn't Bruce White sacrifice his child?

Because he knows that the COMMAND was directed only to Abraham and you can go to the electric chair for being presumptions.

The COVENANT OF LEVI involved tithing.

That's in the Bible.

Why doesn't Bruce White Tithe?

Why he knows that it was made ONLY with the tribe of Levi! And he knows that any "lay" man would get killed for playing music (noise) while they sacrifice the animals prefiguring the killing of Jesus while the Levitical or Military musicians mocked him or sounded holocaust.

Oops! Failed the logic test. Well, is there any OFFICE such as helping the priest slaughter and burn animals to atone for the sins of church members?

No, there is not. Christ did that ONCE FOR ALL and the Levites mocked him just as they mocked the dead animals with a great crashing sound where their "service" was a hard bondage.

Well, if there is no JESUS to slaughter and throw His blood on the altar they HOW can Bruce White get paid the TITHE for "programs"?

The fact is that he cannot and to make the claim is to totally repudiate and reject the Once for All sacrifice of Christ and the TITHE and MUSIC are the MARKS.

And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation. Nu.18:21

That's in the Bible. Let Bruce White go to Israel and claim a tithe and they will mock him out of the land.

Let a true LEVITE ask any Jew for a tithe and he will be treated like the guy who comes to the door claiming that the Electric Company sent him to collect the bill: they will put him on the rock pile where he belongs.

Only FOOD PRODUCERS tithe for the nation: 1% which goes ONLY to the poor or is burned because LITERATE Jews understand that there are no PRIESTS in Israel and pretenders will be lumped with criminals.

Is Bruce White an Israelite? No, he is not. Is Bruce White a member of the tribe of Levi? No, he is not. Is Bruce white living in Canaan? No, he is not. Does Bruce white serve in the TABERNACLE of the congregation? No, he has no role to play.

Therefore, Bruce White and no other Christian can claim the tithe as pay for doing something which he is not able or authorized to do. And his claim is based on the role of priest typically SLAUGHTERING Lord Jesus: does he really want to claim the tithe?

And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that

my covenant might be with Levi, saith the Lord of hosts. Mal.2:4

A Tea Taster goes to the paymaster and demands his salary. The paymaster calls the SWAT TEAM and they haul him away as both dangerous and criminal. Why is that? That is because the office of Tea Taster was made with the one hired as Tea Taster: it was not made with Bruce White.

Guy wants to get paid for making Buggy Whips: as far as I know there is no law which says "there shalt be no more Buggy Whip Makers." Therefore, the LAW must still be in effect. Well, you can sacrifice Lord Jesus each "mass" or Eucharist as you eat His body and drink His blood. Or you can restore the LAW OF MOSES which must be participated in before you can get Lord Jesus to die for YOU PERSONALLY in the old pagan "Believer's Baptism."

But, you won't like the consequences.

God issued the command to build the Ark to Noah and never told everyone else to build an ark. However, common sense knows that if a command is directed to a specific person or group then those not defined are not included.

If you say that 11 tribes pay the tithe to 1 tribe of Levi then you are out on a limb if you cannot figure that the Tribe of Judah representing Lord Jesus Christ DOES NOT EXACT a tithe. If you claim TITHE once for Levi must now go to you then you may claim that you are a Levi or Aaronic Priest and heap the blood of Christ upon your poor head.

Here is the Seed Money Program:

Bruce White: They taught that in agriculture at Auburn University; you better believe this. But I knew it long before that. Why? Because God said so, there's seedtime, harvest time. You plant a seed; you're going to harvest crops.

That's Old Testament.

You believe it. You practice it. You think God's promise is right.

Neither Bruce nor anyone in the church believes that. If they did they would "sell all of the PLANT" and give it to the poor. Jiffy Quick this SEED MONEY GIVING would sprout and you would have to tell the "synagogue" buiilders to quit giving altogether.

Well, they assuredly did not teach much Biblical fact or respect for Biblical fact or respect for people: "You can never rule over people until you first learn to hate them." The Rainbow is defined as an eternal covenant but there is no command to do anything about the rainbow:

And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: Genesis 9:12

I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. Genesis 9:13

Contrary to the NIV, the rainbow is not a toke of our salvation "by faith only." Noah and his tiny remnant family lived by faith. Noah obeyed the command of God and built the ark. God shut his family in and he was saved by WATER as a Biblical type of Baptism. The people were saved by "baptism" in obedience to God and the rainbow was a covenant that mankind will never have to go through that death to self again.

Rain and nature have nothing to do with the Christian System: I watered my persimmon tree this morning and saw lots of rainbows. But, woe is me, I couldn't think of God's covenant because of the LEGALISM heaped on my head about being a cursed criminal for not tithing!

it is a law of nature and was not MADE THAT way as a result of Moses recording it perhaps 3600 years after it began to rain:

That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Mt.5:45

I suppose that the postmodern, narrative theologians would say that the rainbow is a covenant of salvation to both believers and unbelievers?

The TITHE OF THE TITHE was food which went to the storehouse--Not 10%:

And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the Levites take tithes: and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes unto the house of our God, to the chambers, into the treasure house. Neh 10: 38

Bruce White: Well, God said, "If my people will bring the tithes to my storehouse, I will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing to them they can't receive." Where you learned that?

Old Testament. (Malachi 3:10) Oh, well, that's Old Testament.

The returnees tithe failed because the priest tossed out the food from the pantry and made an appartment for his new "Resident Missionary" who was the avowed enemy of the Jews, the laws of the Jews and the God of the Jews.

For the priests lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth:

for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts. Mal 2:7

The priest CANNOT be the oracle of God and "compose" his songs or sermons. When he tries, here is always what happens:

But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the Lord of hosts. Mal 2:8

You have to toss out the priest and the MINISTRY TEAM before the renters of the land in Israel are required to bring in the FOOD AND DRINK ONLY.

Bruce White: Well, Jesus said, over in Luke 6:38, "If you give to me, I will give back to you, pressed down, shaken over, running over."

That's New Testament on the Old Testament saying,

if you give the tithes, God will open the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing.

No, this is the principle of "being judged as you judge." Note that in the following that if you give a baker's dozen to Joe the Miller, he will return the favor and press the flour down.

The teacher COMMUNICATES only the Word and the taught pays their teachers. However, if the teacher does not SOW THE WORD then he is sowing to the flesh.

Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. Gal 6:6

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Gal 6:7

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Ga.6:8

He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; Mt.13:37

The sower soweth the word. Mk.4:14

Clement Stromata: But there is that species of knowledge which is characteristic of the herald, and that which is, as it were, characteristic of a messenger (herald),

and it is serviceable in whatever way it operates, both by the hand and tongue.

"For he that soweth to the Spirit, shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well-doing." [ Gal. vi. 8, 9.]

On him who by Divine Providence meets in with it, it confers the very highest advantages,-

the beginning of faith,
readiness for adopting a right mode of life,
the impulse towards the truth,
a movement of inquiry,
a trace of knowledge;

in a word, it gives the means of salvation.

And those who have been rightly reared in the words of truth, and received provision for eternal life, wing their way to heaven.

If the preacher is sowing the SEED MONEY trick then he is sowing to the flesh hoping to reap MORE MONEY. Therefore, the person is NOT BEING TAUGHT the Word: he should not listen to it and has no duty to communicate food help.

Clement Continues: It therefore follows, that every one of those who undertake to promote the good of their neighbours, ought to consider whether he has betaken himself to teaching rashly and out of rivalry to any;

if his communication of the word is out of vainglory;

if the the only reward he reaps is the salvation of those who hear, and if he speaks not in order to win favour:

if so, he who speaks by writings escapes the reproach of mercenary motives.

"For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know," says the apostle, "nor a cloak of covetousness. God is witness.

Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others,

when we might have been burdensome as the apostles of Christ.

But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children." [1 Thess. ii. 5, 6, 7.]

In the same way, therefore, those who take part in the divine words,

ought to guard against betaking themselves to this, as they would to the building of cities, to examine them out of curiosity; that they do not come to the task

for the sake of receiving worldly things,

having ascertained that they who are consecrated to Christ are given to communicate the necessaries of life.

But let such be dismissed as hypocrites.

See Didache to know that Christianity has not professionals.

Paul continues to OUTLAW the TITHE for the Levites but shows the need to give ALMS to fellow Christians as they have need.

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Gal 6:9

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Gal 6:10

Furthermore, this has nothing to do with CHURCH which is a SCHOOL OF CHRIST and not a dispenser of social justice. The church, like the Synagogue, has no room for the STAFF INFECTION. In the end-time Babylon Whore religion there will be a Ministry of Grinding and a Ministry of Music. But that is pure Tower of Babylon Power because God is not a legalistic giver of gifts to the TITHER (just) and doing mortal harm to the NON-TITHERS.

Remember, the rainbow is a sign that the Rain is to the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

So, the rainbow PROVES that God does not just send rain which makes the crops EXPLODE just to the Tithers.

I'll betcha that if Vinter Joseph tithed of his wine and Shepherd Miriam did not give a penny, when the rains came the grapes would prosper and the lambs grow.

So, God wants a NON-LEGALISTIC tithe because He pours out SPIRITUAL blessings and does not give TESTIFIER A a new Jeep because he tithed and breaks sown withholder B's car because he didn't give Bruce 10% of his WAGES.

I'll bet there is a CURSE upon anyone who extorts a tithe when Jesus Paid it All.

Jesus assigned ALMS only to the poor and Paul assigned COLLECTIONS only to the poor and church history notes ONLY alms to the poor.

Bruce White: "God owns the cattle; we just tend His ranch." We be grateful; therefore, storing it.

True. The only debate is to WHOM shall we send God's rent money?

And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. Luke 6:34

But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Luke 6:35

If God owns all of the wealth on the earth the surely He does not want us to give 10% of our WAGES to Him. In addition, he is our friend so what do we prove by giving or lending to our friend. Therefore, we do not TITHE to our friends or fellow mortgage holders. Rather, if we tithe (and God would honor it) we MUST tithe to the POOR because the POOR cannot return the FAVOR of moving us into the inner circle of the Purpose Driven Cult or advance us from first base to second base.

He can GIVE BACK again so why ignore this passage and GIVE to God based on the premise that He will give more back to us. The preacher is rich so why not just obey God and give to the poor without expecting him to MULTIPLY our SEED MONEY giving?

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Luke 6:36

Mercy is required only to the poor, the borrower who cannot repay or the widow suffering through summer heat because the Pharisee urged her to tithe.

For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. Mk.9:41

This does not include Rubel Giving out $30,000.00 of the people's money to be given in random acts of kindness. One suspects that someone had to suffer so the church could look big.

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Luke 6:37

You could do no worse judging than to threaten people with a curse if they don't give you 10% of their WAGES which God never demanded.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over,

shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. Luke 6:38

God isn't poor and Jesus said that MEN SHALL GIVE back to you. So, he is not speaking of GIVING TO GOD.

The church is not destitute. The church can return the favor. If we give lots of money we will get promoted to the INNER CIRCLE of membership.

So, test God and GIVE TO THE POOR and wait for God to give the increase.

And he spake a parable unto them; Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? Luke 6:39

Luke knew about the tithe but he used another word.

Didomi (g1325) did'-o-mee; a prol. form of a prim. verb (which is used as an altern. in most of the tenses); to give (used in a very wide application, prop. or by impl., lit. or fig.; greatly modified by the connection): - adventure, bestow, bring forth, commit, deliver (up), give, grant, hinder, make, minister, number, offer, have power, put, receive, set, shew, smith (/ with the hand), strike (/ with the palm of the hand), suffer, take, utter, yield.

The tithe is a DEBT and not a true gift.

Since most buildings just HINDER the SCHOOL OF THE BIBLE process in its tracks as it invites the enemies of the Lord to live in the food pantry, there is a better way to test Bruce White's prosperity theology of the world.

You know that when you steal the church houses of widows that you force them to TITHE that which they have already contributed.

If the STOREHOUSE is empty, Nehemiah says, "Cast Tobiah the 'minister of the enemy' out of the storehouse for the poor and there will be no lack of money.

Rather than demanding a tithe which is a FURTHER MARK for those who have chased the poor out by letting the Musical Praise Minister. Therefore, restoring the free will giving could be restored by getting the PRIEST to teach the Word of God rather than to befuddle it.

Here is the test of the tithe:

Just GIVE all of the staff to the charismatic church down the street. Then God will be bound to return you 5 fold or ten fold for the same money. OK?

And to solve the financial problems just TITHE the total church property to the Community church down the street.

That a way, God will be OBLIGATED to give you a ten fold increase and you will be out of debt.

Don Finto pulled that one once. A friend came into the school giggling. Asked him why. He said that Don Finto had ordered his flock (Apostles can do that) to sell their EXPENSIVE CARS and buy BASIC TRANSPORTATION. Friend, a school president, rushed up and bought one of the cars and laughed all of the way home. When God makes buffoons out of those who reject the truth, laugh at them but for heaven's sake don't bet any money on the shell and pea game: the pea is under NONE of the shells.

What did Don's members do with the difference? Why, give it to the church. Test, check and see how many of them experienced prosperity as a result of being tricked out of their good cars?

The Modern Indulgence?

"there still remains the temporal punishment required by divine justice, and this requirement must be fulfilled either in the present life or in the world to come, i.e. in Purgatory. An indulgence offers the penitent sinner the means of discharging this debt during this life on earth" (Woodrow, Ralph, Babylon Mystery Religion, p. 66).

Tithing teaching says that not only will God NOT CURSE you with a curse but God will GIVE YOU INDULGENCE and MORE MONEY than you tithed. That is identical to the Catholic indulgence imposed by force when the church ran out of money when the people became more LITERATE.

"We Americans have tended to take Christianity for granted, and we have used our sophisticated intellects to concoct a myriad of pseudo-religious notions that we follow as if they were the gospel.

Many Americans file into church sanctuaries Sunday after Sunday

to hear befuddled ministers blather a confused mixture of Scripture, psychology, humanistic philosophy, and advice from Dear Abby.

Many of our seminaries send out graduates who aren't sure whether Jesus is the Son of God, whether the Bible is God's inspired Word, or even where to find the book of Hosea. We have invested tremendous amounts of money and raw human energy in our quest to know the truth about life;

all we have found are abstract philosophies, empty symbols, and a perverse kind of self-worship.

We have much in common with the Greeks and Romans... Professing to be wise, we have become fools". (Sumrall, Lester, Where was God when Pagan Religions Began, p. 81).

NO, don't tithe. If you do then you will DENY LORD JESUS and claim--as proven by the Music Team from Levite Land--that Jesus didn't finish the work of the Jubilee for the Atonement.

If you tithe you will DENY CHRIST and Him crucified to the beat of the musical Levites mocking Him but not prevailing.

Assuredly you will be cursed wth an eternal curse if you let anyone put the BURDEN of the Law of Moses on your backs, loading you down like pack animals.

That burden was "spiritual anxiety created by religious ritual" or people imposing the tithe on you. Jesus came to give REST and out "burden" is defined as just the "invoice" for the entire ship load of CARGO which only Lord Jesus can carry.

God put the burden of mediatiating upon the backs of the Levites and Priests.

Christ took that burden.

Your self-selected clergy are not priests.

Therefore, don't give the tithe or you claim them as your BURDEN BEARERS.

The clergy CANNOT carry your burden and true evangelists will strive to RELIEVE your burden: that is the meaning of the GOSPEL. Teaching the tithe is the urge to get you back under the bondage of the Law which was quite identical to that at the Towers of Babylon where the tithe originated. Well, that is what Bruce White claimed and it seems to be his source.

Furthermore, if anyone tries to make free-will giving into a Law of Giving Jesus, Paul and church history gives you total authority to withhold your 2.5% or whatever it is. Since the priests got 1% of the FOOD ONLY tithe to be consumed at the TEMPLE ONLY, you are already giving 2 1/2 times as much as you would as a Jew under Legalism. Just say no until they repent.

Remember that the rainbow is a pledge that God will treat you fairly (as we would) whether you are GOOD or BAD. Therefore, the rainbow is God's covenant of GOODNESS which CANNOT depend on any contribution from us.

DON'T get scammed that the illegal tithe will FORCE God to outgive you. Give your widow's mite if you wish and God will honor you. But, don't forget the "rest of the story." Jesus went out of the den of thieves and house of merchandise and promised to--as with all mega-temples--just tear it down for the third time.

Therefore, the example of the widow's little sliver of bronze or brass was HIS PLEDGE that with NO HOUSE and with NO JERUSALEM there could not ever again be PRIESTS AND levites. Therefore, the rainbow and the widow's mite forever abrogates SELLING the Free Water of the Word. Your tithe cannot save the temple which turns back to Babylon for authority.

The rainbow is not God's Covenant of Law.
