A Jesus Christ Church
Not A Money Church
Most “churches,” ask you for your “tithe,” your money many times during a service. They spend more time trying to get more money from you than speaking life into you.
It is no secret why they are there, and it is not for The Lord.
Most “churches” are about profit and wealth, not to give more to those in need, but for the so-called “preachers” and “church leaders” to live like kings and queens.
They do enough to point and say, “see, we do this, and we do that,” but most of the money goes to keep them in their life of luxury.
We lose Christians and would-be Christians because of the hypocrisy and greed in these so-called “church leaders” hearts.
Those false prophets, those wolves that preach in those "churches," do not roam in this church. If they serve money, they cannot serve Him.
24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
“Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.”
These wolves are not only leading the people in their “churches” into darkness but staining the word Christian as they do it.
“29 I know that false teachers, like vicious wolves, will come in among you after I leave, not sparing the flock. 30 Even some men from your own group will rise up and distort the truth in order to draw a following.”
A Jesus Christ Church
There Is Another Way: “The Way”— Our Way, Which Is His Way.
We are a Church that will never pass a basket, never try to tell you things you want to hear so that you can feel good enough about yourself to give more money and things.
Here is a Church that wants to spread His Love more than we want your money.
Here is a Church that wants you to have a committed relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ more than we want your money.
Why? Because the way to your best self and Eternal Life is by knowing and Loving The Lord Jesus Christ.
He sent us to get you and tell you He Loves You. Now let us get the rest of our brothers and sisters.
“And This Is His Commandment: That We Should Believe On The Name Of His Son Jesus Christ And Love One Another, As He Gave Us Commandment.”
I, Shepherd JW Zepeda, As Servant Of The Highest, Want You To Use The Tithe, The Money, You Would Normally Give This Church, To Love Others With Instead.
Therefore, For Most Of You, Keep Your Tithe That You Would Normally Give This Church If You Are Willing To Love Others With It.
Instead Of Tithing To This Church, Let Us Spread The Spread Love As Fast As We Can. Go Out There And Love Others In Need.
Let us Love each other the way we would like to be Loved ourselves. The Lord’s Golden rule.
You will not have to go far to find those in need of Love, in need of help, in need of hope, in need of The Lord.
Love others and be messengers for The Lord in the most powerful way, not by speaking about The Lord but by being about The Lord.
The Book of James tells us in 2:14-17. that if you claim to have faith yet see others in need and do nothing, that kind of faith is useless, fake: and dead.
You cannot say you Love The Lord and see His children, your brothers, and sisters, suffering and doing nothing.
If you cannot go and Love others for any reason, give the tithe to this Church so that we can spread the Love faster.
Regarding Love offerings and the gifts that The Lord calls you to give to this Church, we appreciate and value your support.
The tithe was never all that we gave to The Lord. The tithe was just the minimum. We give, after we tithe, because our heart calls us to. Anybody can do what we are supposed to do, but what we do just because we want to shows what is in our hearts.
In Deuteronomy 12:17., The Old Testament called the gifts from your heart “freewill offerings.”
The Lord chose the Apostle Paul to give the Gospel of Our Lord to the world outside of Israel. Paul wrote in The New Testament about giving from your heart and the blessing you get for doing so. 2 Corinthians 9:6-9. “The Cheerful Giver.”
Paul says that you will get what you give. If you give more, you will get more.
Paul says everybody should give from their heart, not with bad feelings or because they must, but because they want to. “For God Loves A Cheerful Giver.”
Paul says that when you give to The Lord, you will be “Enriched” in every way. The Lord will provide for you, and you will have enough to give more.
This Church has its Mission, and we need funding like the rest. But we will only take money from the wealthy, businesses, and those who cannot spread the Love themselves.
Abraham, the first man God found to be righteous (righteous means a person who is not controlled by sin but strives to live Godly: a Christlike existence), was the first to tithe.
Abraham tithed to King and Priest of Almighty God: Melchizedek. Here, the tradition of the tithe takes root and calls followers of Almighty God to give a 10th of all they have to The Lord’s work.
Later, God commanded the eleven tribes of Israel through Moses to give a 10th of all they had to another tribe: Levi (there were twelve tribes in all) because the tribe of Levi (the Levitical Priesthood) were the workers of Almighty God.
Since the Levites worked strictly for Almighty God, the Levites would live off the tithes to survive.
The Book of Malachi tells us that not giving your tithe is to rob God.
There are some who have falsely claimed that the tithe was a Jewish tradition and Christians are not under the same law, but they are wrong. The Lord Jesus Christ said we should tithe.
“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your herb gardens, but you ignore the more important aspects of the law—justice, mercy, and faith. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things.”
“What sorrow awaits you Pharisees! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your herb gardens, but you ignore justice and the Love of God. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things.”
Next, the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 9:6-9., said that the more you give, the more you receive. Paul says that if we live the word, we should be "Cheerful Givers," not giving solely because we are told to, but to give because we want to.
Finally, The Lord Jesus Christ told people to give alms (things to help the poor). The Lord said sell what you have if that is the only way to help others.
“32 "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you The Kingdom. 33 Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
The Lord is saying to us that by helping others, we make the deposits in Heaven that will serve to save our souls.
