Brother Branham Quotes on Tithes and Offerings

Can a Christian go to Heaven if he or she does not pay tithe?

43  Now, that’s one that I could not answer, scripturally.

44  Now, this “Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,” if the minister is sincere, just let–let us know, you see, we’d be glad…Brother Neville and myself, or Brother Beeler, or Brother Collins, or any of these ministers here who are ordained to this ministry, and so forth, can–can do so.

Now, but now: Does a Christian not get to Heaven because they do not pay tithe?

45  I–I could not say “yes” or “no” to that. But I do believe that every Christian is obligated to pay tithings because it is a commandment of the Lord. “And blessed is…are they that do all His commandments, that they might have a right to enter into the Life, the Tree of Life.” Now, I do believe that tithe-paying is essential to Christian experience. For I’ll get to that in another question in a few moments, I know there’s another one in here pertaining to that.

  Brother Branham, don’t you feel that everyone who claims to be a Christian should pay tithes, pay their tithes into the storehouse of the Lord? Please give Scripture to this question.

111  All right, if you will…That is right, that the Bible said in Malachi, the 4th chapter, “Will a man rob God? And you say, ‘Where have’ you ‘robbed Thee?’ In tithe and offerings. Bring all of your tithe and offerings into My storehouse, and prove Me,” saith the Lord, “if I will not open up the windows of Heaven, and pour out a blessing that there’ll not be room enough to receive.”

112  That’s a challenge to any individual! And if I only had the time, and would not get to this little Scripture that I wish to get to in about the next ten minutes, I would like to give you a personal testimony of how that I was even hungry, and my mother and them hungry, and my daddy sick, but I took my tithes out first and give it to God, and you ought to see what happened. I have never seen in my life, that any man or a woman, that if you only make one dollar a week, will bring the ten cents of that money and put it into your storehouse, or a church where you come, if God don’t bless that call me a hypocrite. Yes, sir. That’s a challenge to anybody. And every Christian…That goes to this other question. Every Christian should pay tithes! That’s right. It should be done. All right, now:

  Would it be wrong to use tithes on church building funds?

176  Well now, here–here’s a touchy little thing for the church now. No, correctly tithes is to go to the minister. That’s right! In the Bible they had a box they’d set at the door in the Old Testament when the–building. This box was a fund where the people put in there for the repairing…You’ve read it many times in the Old Testament. They kept up the buildings and things like that…All the repairs on the building was taken care out of that fund. But a tenth of that went–a tenth of the tithings–all the tithings went to their priests, their pastors. Yes, tithings are to go for nothing else.

177  I know people take their tithes and give them to a widow woman. That’s wrong. If you’ve got anything to give the widow woman, give her, but don’t give her God’s money. That’s not yours in the first place. That’s God’s!

178  If you sent me downtown to get a loaf of bread, and you give me twenty-five cents to get the loaf of bread, and I met somebody on the street wanted it…something else, and I’d give him the twenty-five cents, see, I give them your money. If they asked me for something, let them get it over here in this pocket and give them my money; but this is your money. And a tenth of it is the Lord’s. And Levi, the priesthood, lived by the tenth.

179  The tenth is to be a tithing that’s to be brought into the storehouse with a promise of God to bless it. And a proof, He said, “If you don’t believe it, come and prove Me and see if I won’t do it.” See? That’s right!

180  The tithings goes into the church for the pastor and so forth like that to live on. And then the–the–the building funds and things like that is a separate fund altogether. Now, that–that is Scriptural.

181  One time when we get started, I want to take a night…I’ve went here some time ago before I left the tabernacle and taken about two or three weeks and just on subjects like that and went plumb through it and showed what tithings was in the church.

  Should a person pay tithes to an individual, or should a Christian work?

180  Sure he should. He’s the one man that will work, is a Christian.

181  “Pay tithes to an individual?” It depends on who the individual is. See? That’s right. In Hebrews 7, the first time tithings was talked about in–in a stand that we…Wait a minute, I believe, number two question. No! Uh-uh. No! For Brother…Said, “Two questions for Brother Branham.”

182  When…In Hebrews the 7th chapter, when Abraham, returning from the slaughter of the kings, met Melchisedec, he paid Him a tithe. That was Melchisedec, the King of Salem, which is King of Peace, and King of Righteousness, which was nobody but God Himself. See?

183  But when you pay tithings…Really, where you owe tithings is where you get your food. “Bring ye all your tithings into My storehouse, saith the Lord. (That right?) And prove Me wherein saith God, that if I’ll not open the windows of Heaven and pour out a blessing that you would not have room enough to receive it.” I challenge any man or woman that’s not a tithe payer to accept that.

184  I could stand here till in the morning, telling you just what happened when I seen that, and what condition I was in. But just as loyal as I ever could, I paid tithes. And when I took my own money from the church here or from my campaigns, I’d take more–I’d give a tenth. Then I’d give it out to ministers, and give the rest of it to ministers.

Then, when I couldn’t do that, then the thing I did, I kept ten percent and give God ninety. And then, when the law told me I couldn’t do that, I’d have to take…And if I did, it was all to be charged to it, then I had to take and bypass it into foreign missions and so forth, and then just take a wage out of that of a hundred dollars a week; and I pay my tithes from that.

185  Yes, sir! I believe in paying tithes. It’s one of God’s blessings that’s proven to be a blessing. You say, “That’s of the Old Testament.” It is of the New Testament too! Yes, sir!
