The Ten Percent Gospel or Malachi Syndrome

Tithe, Tithe, Tithe!
Your money give to God
Tithe, Tithe, Tithe!
Will your God you rob?

Mix LAW and FAITH together
And set a precedent,
Mix LAW and FAITH together
But start at ten percent!

For me to tithe? it's not of faith
It's like - not eating ham,
For me to tithe? it's not of faith
Don't make the gospel a sham!

Give Freely, Freely, Freely
For, in the Christ you are made alive,
Give Freely, Freely, Freely
And make His ROOD your tithe! ! !

'Freely you have received, freely give.'

Matthew 10: 7-16; Acts 4: 36,37

(The tithe in Malachi was food, somewhere along the line it's been changed to money, most likely
by 'money hungry' pastors who see themselves a as type of Levitical Priesthood, and live like
parasites off the sheep, the 34th of Ezekiel says it all.)

The Wounds of a Friend

The wounds of a friend are faithful
That you might grow in the Lord
But the kiss of the enemy is deadly
As sure as the lunge of the sword.

A friend speaks words that are true
To the end you are edified,
But an enemy speaks in deceit
Whose kiss is from one mortified.

So, bear the wounds of a friend
His rebuke will cause you to love;
But beware the kiss of the enemy
That devil Judas was not from above! ! !

Proverbs 27: 6

Trusting

Trusting in YESHUA day by day
Trusting in God, the only way;
Trusting the Saviour every hour
Trusting in the Spirit's power.
For trusting means a rest in God
For those that have believed;
And precious was the gift of faith -
When God caused me to believe.

Trusting in the grace of Him
Trusting that the race I'll win
Trusting now and evermore
Trusting God's Son? for sure!

'By so much was Yeshua made a surety of a better testament.'

Hebrews 7: 22

Valleys

I thank God for the valleys
That he takes me through at times;
For valleys are the places where
God teaches the sublime.

For from the mountian top
The view is clear and far
But when in the valley depths -
You will find out who you are.

For at the bottom of the valley
Is the shadow that is of death;
The arena of many battles
Where Satan tries to steal your breath.

Yet in my darkest valley of life
Another one I see,
Who tells in soft and gentle words
'I have walked the deepest valley for thee'

So that all the valleys I now walk
Shall but lead me to higher ground,
For water always runs downhill
And at Yeshua's side it's found!

John 19: 34
