And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee. Genesis 28:22 KJV
The tithe is holy and is a sign of covenant relationship as it is brought to the local church where you attend and presented to the pastor who presents it to God.
No Tithe – No covenant.
Jesus is the Stone and the church is the pillar.
The local church is the pillar and ground of Truth when it honors God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit illumined Word (the Bible).
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 1 Timothy 3:15 KJV
