Tithing in the KJV BibleIf you look up Numbers 18:26-32, it should mention it there. Answer

The above answer does mention tithing. But the main scripture is in the book Malachi where it talks about how we are cursed if we don't tithe. Also in The Bible and I can't remember where and I'm tring to find it it mentions that a tithe is 10% but anything more than that is a gift or offering.

In Malachi 3: 8-12

"Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, 'In what way have we robbed You?' In thithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse for you have robbed Me, even this whole nation. Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may food in my house, And try me now in this," Says the Lord of Hosts. If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. "

And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, not shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field.

Inother words God telling us to test him and see if he wont come through with the promise of such blessings that we can barely contain it. Kinda like the story in John 21 about the disciples who caught so much fish they had to have help getting the net in the boat.

Hope this helps

No - paying tithes is similar to paying taxes.

How does first fruits apply to us today?

Do the very best that you can, give of the best you have. That is all that is expected of you. The first fruits for the church are our tithes and offerings, or more correctly God's tithes and offerings. the first fruits of our total income each week, one-tenth of all we earn or is given to us to each week. we should give to the church to support its ministries and world evangelism. Malachi 3:10-12: because today only a few of us are farmers, therefore, we bring one-tenth of our gross income each week into God's Storehouse, the Christian Church. will a man rob God, yes he will, but how. in tithes and offerings Malachi 3:8: because he will not pay God's tithes and offerings to the church as God has commanded us to do.

A "robber of God" is a person who does not pay God 10% of their income. Although to some it may seem like a way for churches to get money, that is not so. In Malachi 8 and 9 of the Old Testament, it says, "Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation."Paying our tithes, or the ten percent of our income, is very important to God. It shows Him that we are serious about Him, and that we do indeed put Him as the first priority in our lives.
