and I will bring you today biblical answers to Perfect WORDS, Perfect WORKS, Perfect WONDERS (WWW): Why didn’t the Early Apostles Collect Tithe? +Last counsel in being SLAIN in the spirit + Your PURPOSE or DESTINY, whose is it to PERFORM and PERFECT?.
David did a good job looking at the issue of tithe collection from Jesus’s perspective in our last post.
Now let’s look at this topic from the early Apostles perspective. The Apostles never for once mentioned to anyone to bring tithe into God’s house
– Not Paul, throughout his Epistles, not Peter, not John or James who were in the inner core of Jesus ministry after the Pentecost because the priesthood order, as per the way it was done in the old testament, was taken down by Christ finished work upon the cross, giving you and me direct access to God’s throne – We the new believers became priest and king unto our God.
So the disciples collected free will offering as people were led by the Holy Spirit to give sacrificially as they had need amongst them. Tithe was old covenant or law where a priest served as intermediary between God and man.
Jesus, once and for all sacrifice obliterated, took down that order of arrangements and made *all of us* His ambassadors( His priest and kings) here on Earth
You can find scriptural backing as follows and take time to Meditate because the requirements for giving in the new testament goes FAR beyond 10%, as the saw need, they sold possessions and give sacrificially: Let look at some scriptures in the light of perfect Words, Works and Wonders:
King James Version
_6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen_
*Revelation 5:10* _You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth_
*1 Peter 2:9 New International Version*
_9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession,that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light._
So, when 1 Peter says we are a royal priesthood, what that means is we are both a *king and a priest at the same time.* We are a king who takes territory and expands the Kingdom of God with authority and influence, and we are a priest who serves God with direct access and fellowship with Him in the throne room of God.
_and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel.”_
1 Peter 2:5
_you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ._
_But you will be called the priests of the Lord; You will be spoken of as ministers of our God.You will eat the wealth of nations, And in their riches you will boast._
*Now if perfection was through the Levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the people received the Law), what further need was there for another priest to arise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be designated according to the order of Aaron?*
_The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind, “You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.”_
_So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”_
New International Version
*The Believers Share Their Possessions*
_32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need._
_36 Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means “son of encouragement”), 37 sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles’ feet_
I can give you more scriptures so that perfect words, perfect works and perfects wonders will return into our midst.
To tell you how important ” perfect words” are to God, read this from David in PSALMS 138 ( Messianic Edition)2
*Complete Jewish Bible*
2 I bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to Your name for Your grace and truth;
*for You have made Your word [even] greater than the whole of your reputation.*
*In summary,* in your giving, be led by the Spirit of God because this is the era of the Holy Spirit.
We are no longer in the law of 10% of the old levitical order. That is the law of human effort and not grace. We should not pick and choose what we want from the old and the new. Jesus advised against it. Like sawing a new garment with a patch from old and new materials. Paul spoke against this returning to the law in Galatians chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4 Does that mean you can’t be bless if you give 10%? You will be blessed ( give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down and running over shall men give unto your bossom.-Luke 6:38) that cannot be broken but better to be led and don’t retract or restrict your giving. God is beyond 10% give sacrificially.
*Last counsel in being SLAIN in the spirit*
Concerning being SLAIN in the spirit, you can fall but don’t come up the same way you were when you went down.
Their must be a change, a healing, a deliverance and a restoration. Don’t go blank, it is not scriptural – going blank open doors for the demonic. The Holy Spirit does not make one go blank. He works in partnership with you and not outside of your consciousness. Don’t do being SLAIN to bring attention to yourself. The Holy Spirit is at work in you to bring attention and glory to Christ the Messiah and our Father in heaven.
During my encounter with the divine, I had full consciousness. I was vibrating all over but I never for once loose sight of what was going on around me. I saw His form and I never remain the same and so must YOU
Now let’s look at the last part of our title today- *Perfect WORDS, Perfect WORKS, Perfect WONDERS (WWW): Why didn’t the Early Apostles Collect Tithe? +Last counsel in being SLAIN in the spirit + Your PURPOSE or DESTINY, whose is it to PERFORM and PERFECT?*
Your purpose or destiny, whose is it to PERFORM and PERFECT?
In the course of the last 7 to 10 days, I have been meditating on Psalm 90, a prayer of Prophet Moses. I have not been able to move beyond this in my prayers for self and others.
Here is the part that stood out for me : Psalm 90:14-17
Complete Jewish Bible
*14 Fill us at daybreak with your love, so that we can sing for joy as long as we live.*
_15 Let our joy last as long as the time you made us suffer, for as many years as we experienced trouble._
*16 Show your deeds to your servants and your glory to their children.*
*17 May the favor of Adonai our God be on us, prosper for us all the work that we do — yes, prosper the work that we do*
In the light of the title today, is that, our purpose and destiny comes direct from God to us. He will make known to us what He wants done as we develop a secret place Relationship with Him and in that secret place He will embody us with His power, ability and grace to do those things He wants us to do and to be that will bring glory to His name. Ours is to develop a childlike willingness, no matter how difficult the task before us may be. We can’t fulfill God’s purpose by ourselves alone. We do this in complete partnership with Him. Jesus say, “I do nothing except what I see my Father doing”.
New International Version
19 Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed.
May we key into Him so that He can key into us and do the work through us for His glory as His ambassador here on earth in Jesus name, amen.
My prayer for you is in *Psalm 138:8*
Complete Jewish Bible
*8 Adonai will fulfill his purpose for me. Your grace, Adonai, continues forever. Don’t abandon the work of your hands!*
Our Father, the Lord Jesus Christ and the presence of the Holy Spirit in You and I will PERFECT and PERFORM His purpose, His destiny for you and me in Jesus name, amen
God is orchestrating the events in our lives according to His good plan even before we were born. Read this in closing:

139 (0) For the leader. A psalm of David:
(1) Adonai, you have probed me, and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I stand up,
you discern my inclinations from afar,
3 you scrutinize my daily activities.
You are so familiar with all my ways
4 that before I speak even a word, Adonai,
you know all about it already.
5 You have hemmed me in both behind and in front
and laid your hand on me.
6 Such wonderful knowledge is beyond me,
far too high for me to reach.
7 Where can I go to escape your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I climb up to heaven, you are there;
if I lie down in Sh’ol, you are there.
9 If I fly away with the wings of the dawn
and land beyond the sea,
10 even there your hand would lead me,
your right hand would hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Let darkness surround me,
let the light around me be night,”
12 even darkness like this
is not too dark for you;
rather, night is as clear as day,
darkness and light are the same.
13 For you fashioned my inmost being,
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I thank you because I am awesomely made,
wonderfully; your works are wonders —
I know this very well.
15 My bones were not hidden from you
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes could see me as an embryo,
but in your book all my days were already written;
my days had been shaped
before any of them existed.
17 God, how I prize your thoughts!
How many of them there are!
18 If I count them, there are more than grains of sand;
if I finish the count, I am still with you.
19 God, if only you would kill off the wicked!
Men of blood, get away from me!
20 They invoke your name for their crafty schemes;
yes, your enemies misuse it.
21 Adonai, how I hate those who hate you!
I feel such disgust with those who defy you!
22 I hate them with unlimited hatred!
They have become my enemies too.
23 Examine me, God, and know my heart;
test me, and know my thoughts.
24 See if there is in me any hurtful way,
and lead me along the eternal way.
May the Lord bless you and keep you, may the Lord cause His countenance to shine brightly upon you and give you peace and joy in the Holy Ghost, may He fulfil and perfect all the plans, the purpose, the destiny for your life in Him, every one of it. May He work and walk with you and in you to do and be that that brings Him glory and Honor and adoration in Jesus name, amen.
Merry Christmas for you and all your loved ones. May the meaning, the message and the purpose of the one we celebrate – Jesus Christ be entrenched and vested completely, submerged in you and thought you this season
May you and in *Ephesians 1:11-12*

11 Also in union with him we were given an inheritance, we who were picked in advance according to the purpose of the One who effects everything in keeping with the decision of his will, 12 so that we who earlier had put our hope in the Messiah would bring him praise commensurate with his glory
In union with Him in Jesus name, amen
