A. Basic principles of Tithes and Offerings
- Basic principles of Tithes and Offerings
- Following the example of Melchizedek who provided a Holy Communion with bread and wine (Ge 14:17-20),
- and to give offerings with thanksgiving (Rev 5:12/Rev 7:12),
- and overflowing joy (2 Co 8:2),
- Voluntarily on your own (2 Co 8:3-5).
The church in Philadelphia, which is called the “First Heaven” on earth because there is a gate to heaven opened by the key of David (Ge 28:12-14/Isa 22:20-22), is a place where people can tithe with thanksgiving and give the glory to God and also where the presence and the second coming of Jesus has been promised(Rev 3:11), just as the gates of heaven were shown to Jacob, symbolizing Israel, the one who overcomes, in Bethel.
(Ge 28:16-22) 16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not. 17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. 18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. 19 And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first. 20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, 21 So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God: 22 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.
Also, the church in Philadelphia is the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion(Rev 3:12/Isa 18:7) and the fruit of the new covenant in the end times will be borne for the believers of the church in Philadelphia who have gathered under the flag of the brides of Jesus Christ. (Ps 20:4-6/2 Th 1:11-12)
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah: And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah. And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so, he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.” (Isa 22:20-22)
(Ge 17:2-5) 2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. 3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, 4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. 5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
(Rev 3:7-10) 7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; 8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
In the end times, Zion is the place of the name of the LORD of hosts and Mount Zion represents God’s community, a bridal symbiotic community of Jesus consisted of the holy people of God (Da 7:27). In other words, it symbolizes the holy people of the Church in Philadelphia, the first heaven in which the name of God has been placed (Rev 12:1/Rev 13:6/Mic 4:1-8/Gal 4:26)
(Rev 3:12) 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
(Isa 18:7) 7 In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.
Also, “Beulah and Philadelphia”, the name of the new Jerusalem, represents the brides who are the wives to be married with Jesus (Rev 21:9-10/Rev 22:17) and is symbolized by the bridal community of Jesus, “those who are married with Jesus – Beulah”, which is God’s human network of the Holy City consisted of members of the symbiotic community of promise (Rev 19:8-9) who participate in the marriage party with Jesus. They are the chosen people by Jesus in the end times.
Here, the Philadelphia is a term based on the word from a combination of Phil, which means love, and Adelphic, which means sisters who have same husband, it symbolizes the bridal symbiotic community of Jesus with love (Rev 21:9-10). It means the brides network of Jesus like Beulah. (Isa 62:4)
(Isa 62:4) 4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.
(Rev 21:9-10) 9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. 10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
(Rev 21:17) 17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
(Rev 21:14) 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb
(Rev 22:17) 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
Especially, in Rev 3:10, by Jesus’ saying to the righteous believers of the church in Philadelphia who obeyed the word of prophecy as shown in Verse 10, “because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth”, he tells us that the church in Philadelphia is the place that avoids the hardships of temptation that come upon the entire world in the Revelation times as well as the place of “Passover” for the kingdom and the priests of God who possess olive oil and wine, which symbolize the word of life. Like this, the church is the castle of truth that moves forward with Jesus while accurately aiming at following the prophecy of Jesus and also the place where the word of the way to righteous salvation exists and, thus, Jesus personally protects the hearts and thoughts of his believers. (Isa 65:16-17/Jer 31:31-34/Eph 1:7-19/Ps 15:1-5)
“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” (Rev 3:10)
(Ex 12:2-13) 2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. 3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: 4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. 5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: 6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. 7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. 8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. 9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. 10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. 11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’s passover 12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. 13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
In other words, Revelation 3:10 represents that the church in Philadelphia is the spiritual Noah’s Ark as the place of “Passover” for the kingdom and the priests of God in the end times
Also, in the Revelation times during which a spiritual temptation will come upon the whole world (Rev 3:10), the church in Philadelphia is a place, we call the mount Zion(Rev 3:12/Isa 18:7), that shows God’s complete plan of revealing the hidden mysteries of Christ towards eternal life for all the thirsty seekers of truth who desire the word of living waters and hold onto the hope of resurrection as well as believers of all nations who wish to be the brides of Jesus (2 Co 2:14-17/Ps 121:1-2).
(Dt 12:5-7) 5 But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come: 6 And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks: 7 And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.
(Isa 60:8-9) 8 Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows? 9 Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.
(Mt 23:23) 23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
(Ge 14:18-20) 18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God 19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: 20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
Also, through a genuine relationship of sharing without asking for rewards, the believers of the church in Philadelphia set their goal on leading outsiders to the path of eternal life, personally experience the grace of Jesus Christ, the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit, do not interfere with the Holy Spirit, fulfill the law of Christ of sharing one another’s burdens, (Gal 6:2) and participate in the first resurrection as they are written in the book of life. They are the final recipients of Revelation and members of the new Jerusalem as they are borne into a good tree on a good soil and form the kingdom of Christ (Lk 8:15/Rev 11:15).
Therefore, we must view the people of God who live in suffering with compassion, sympathy, empathy and spiritual communion. When we share their burdens as we feel certain that the sufferings will bring greater blessings of purification, we are able to participate in the kingdom of the Lord and Christ (Rev 11:15) as we wholly accomplish the laws of Christ (Gal 6:2).
(Ac 2:38-47) 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. 40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the 42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
About Riches and Thanksgiving
“Comparison of Revelation 5:12 and 7:12”
(Rev 5:12) 12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
(Rev 7:12) 12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
Comparison of Revelation 5:12 and 7:12
Worthy for Jesus, the Lamb (Rev 5:12)
Belonging to God for ever and ever (Rev 7:12)
All riches are not ours but Jesus’ that we have received by his grace. If we do not give thanks to God for these riches, we do not belong to Him.
Tithes given voluntarily with faith and earnestness are confirmations of our thanksgiving hearts to the Lord and religious confessions to the Lord that, in addition to the 1/10 of offering, we also will not spend the rest prodigally for we belong to God.
9. Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
10. So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
17. And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
- But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he tha giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
- 19. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.
- As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God.
14. Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
15. And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
16. But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
17. Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.
18. When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
19. Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
20. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son.
21. These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
22. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
23. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.
1. Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3. Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4. Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5.A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6. Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
8. His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
9. He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
10. The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
17. Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
19. Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
27.Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
From now on, by taking care of the needy and the weak, we must first fulfill our callings as the priests of the kingdom of the Lord and Christ, truly give thanks to God and give Him the glory. Then, the cups of blessing will overflow with abundance and the spiritual wealth and happiness will definitely be in the house. From this the crown of prosperity will be obtained and the eternal life reached, and we will forever reside in the Holy City. (Mt 25:31-46)
19. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
20. Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
8. Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.
24. No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
15. And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
16. And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
17. And he thought within himself, saying, what shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
18. And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
21. So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
5. Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
6. But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
9. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
B. The Management System of Tithes by Mentor
Becoming a Mentor
When you gather more than one partnering disciple (Crown) who is member, you become the mentor of the partnering disciples. (*Based on the evangelistic structure, recommender who initially recommended the Member is to become the Mentor of the Member.)
(Isa 66:18-22) 18 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory. 19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles 20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD. 21 And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD. 22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
(Isa 24:1-2) 1 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. 2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.
The mentor who acts as a Guide of meeting can gather Tithes and Offerings for mission activities according to following system. (Mentor can gather Tithes from only his or her own crowns directly, not from grand crowns)
Basic principles of Tithes and Offerings
- Following the example of Melchizedek who provided a Holy Communion with bread and wine (Gen 14:17-20),
- and to give offerings with thanksgiving (Rev 5:12/Rev 7:12)
- and overflowing joy (2 Co 8:2),
- Voluntarily on our own (2 Co 8:3-5).
(1 Pe 2:4-5) 4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, 5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
(Isa 66:20-22) 20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD. 21 And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD. 22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
(Nu 18:24-26) 24 But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as an heave offering unto the LORD, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. 25 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
26 Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for the LORD, even a tenth part of the tithe.
The Management System of Tithes by Mentor
The Beulah Mission of the Church in Philadelphia has a unique Management System of Tithes by Mentor as follows. If mentor needs effective and quick economical independency, he or she can choose it with the fulfillment of down below “Quick Start” diagram system.
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:” (1 Pe 2:9)
The basic principle of this system is, first of all helping Mission Activities and your Neighbors.
The choice of this system depends on mentor’s decision. (And when you choose this management system, after informing it to your mentor, you need to explain to your partnering disciples who are crowns how to apply this system before starting activities.)
(Php 4:1) 1 Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.
Just for the case of Tithes,
Your Mentor ▲
1. 10% of your personal income as your own tithe
2. All the amounts of the tithes that you gather from your crowns
(Give 1. and 2. separately to your mentor)
1) Give 10% of your personal income to your mentor as your tithe within the first week of every month.
2) And give to your mentor the total amounts of the tithes that you gather from your crowns.
3) And then your mentor who received all the amounts of the tithes that you gather from your crowns, will give 10% of the total amounts as tithe to the Beulah Mission of Phila Church for worldwide online mission activities.
-For giving tithes to the Beulah Mission of Phila Church, please refer to Donation.
4) And then your mentor who received all the amounts of the tithes that you gather from your crowns, will give 10% of that amount to the church of in which he or she belongs. If there is no church that your mentor is attending currently, he or she will spend 10% of the total amounts for widows, orphans, poor people, travelers, and missionaries etc.
And then for mission activities and living, your mentor can spend and manage 80% of the total amounts of the tithes that you gather from your crowns.
5) In case there is no mentor for you, -you may use and manage the tithes (80%) for mission activities and you’re living. – (The rest 20%: will give 10% of the total amounts to the Beulah mission of phila church for worldwide online mission activities. – And will give 10% of that amount to the Church in which you belong. – If there is no church that you are attending currently, you will spend 10% of the total amounts for widows, orphans, poor people, travelers, and missionaries etc. (80%+10%+10%=100%)
6) Except tithes, for the other Offerings that you gather from your crowns, you can use and manage for mission activities and your own living.
In the same way, when your own crowns (partnering disciples) gather tithes from your grand crowns, they will give all the amounts to you. (You need to inform them before starting activities.)
After giving 10% of the total amounts as tithe to the Beulah Mission of Phila Church for worldwide online mission activities, you will give 10% of that amount to the church in which you are attending. If there is no church that you are attending currently, you will spend 10% of the total amounts for widows, orphans, poor people, travelers, and missionaries etc.
And then for mission activities and living, you can spend and manage 80% of the total amounts of the tithes that your crowns gather from your grand crowns.
When your own crowns (partnering disciples) gather tithes from your grand crowns, you will receive the total amounts that they gather. And you have to divide voluntarily for the uses of the total amounts as follows.
And then you will give 10% of the total amounts as tithe to the Beulah Mission of Phila Church for worldwide online mission activities.
And you will give 10% of total amounts to the church in which you are attending. If there is no church that you are attending currently, you will spend 10% of the total amounts for widows, orphans, poor people, travelers, and missionaries etc.
And then for mission activities and living, you can spend and manage 80% of the total amounts of the tithes that your crowns gather from your grand crowns.
= Total 100%
(Jn 4:36-38) 36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. 37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. 38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
At the first time, each of the 7 can gather 7 partnering disciples to build 49 people quickly with your family, relatives, neighbors, and friends etc. which forms like below diagram. If possible, you can try quickly within a week (seven days) to gather the first 7 stars (your own crowns) like the period of the Feast Unleavened Bread. Also, you can try to bring together 49 grand crowns within 7 weeks (49 days) as follows.
(Ac 16:31) 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
(Col 2:16-17) 16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
(1 Sa 2:5) 5 They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven; and she that hath many children is waxed feeble.
For instance, in case of quick start, if 24 peoples in 49 peoples of grand crowns could offer tithe of about $200 per each person monthly, the mentor (branch) could gather about $4,800(24 X 200) per month through this system.
And the mentor can use monthly 80% of the total amounts -about $3,840($4,800 – $960) for mission activities and living after giving 10% (about $480) of the total amounts as tithe to the Beulah Mission of Phila Church for worldwide online mission activities and after giving additional 10% (about $480) of total amount to the church in which you are attending. (Also, if you are with your spouse, it can be double amounts of about $3,840.)
If there is no church that you are attending currently, instead, you will spend 10% (about $480) of the total amounts for widows, orphans, poor people, travelers, and missionaries etc. ($4,800-$480-$480-$3,840=0)
Here, each branch(member) becomes the mentor of his or her own Crown who becomes the mentor of Grand-Crown (*Based on the evangelistic structure, Recommender who initially recommended the Branch is to become the Mentor of the Member.)
(2 Co 9:6) 6 But this I asy, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
(Gal 6:6-10) 6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 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. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
(Lk 12:29-34) 29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Also, a mentor must realize oneself that he or she is a clergy in the end times working to spread the everlasting gospel (Rev 14:6), who can receive the rightful wage through Tithes and Offerings as a gospel evangelist, seek and use materials for evangelizing and missions as foot soldiers of Christ according to God’s purpose. This is definitely not favor-seeking faith of worldly blessings based on materials. (Lk 22:36/Zec 8:3-12)
(Col 3:5) 5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
(Jas 5:1-5) 1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
(Zec 8:3-12) 3 Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain. 4 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age. 5 And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof. 6 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the LORD of hosts. 7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; 8 And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness. 9 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built. 10 For before these days there was no hire for man, nor any hire for beast; neither was there any peace to him that went out or came in because of the affliction: for I set all men every one against his neighbour. 11 But now I will not be unto the residue of this people as in the former days, saith the LORD of hosts. 12 For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.
(Mal 3:10-12) 10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. 11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. 12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.
To become a good foot soldier of Jesus, we must be free ourselves of materialistic restrictions and mammonism so prevalent, emanate the scent and light of Christ as the kingdom and the priests of God in the end times with the influence of the Holy Spirit, and hold up the God-centered religion in the proper way.
(2 Ti 2:2-6) 2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. 6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
(1 Ti 5:17-18) 17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. 18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
(Dt 25:4) 4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.
(1 Co 9:9-14) 9 For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? 10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope. 11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things? 12 If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ. 13 Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? 14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
(Eze 37: 1-10) 1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, 2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. 3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. 4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. 5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: 6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. 8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. 9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
