    John Clark teaches that the blood of Christ is the Holy Spirit.


John David Clark Sr. is the leader of what he calls an "independent church" in Henderson, NC.  Clark's followers refer to him as their "pastor" but he refers to himself on the internet as "seer." He took over the "church" when his father, George C. Clark, became too old to lead the group.  It is unclear from the "church" web site exactly what John David Clark's "qualifications" are for leading this "church."  Despite the number of visitors to the "church" web site, this little "church" has less than 100 followers worldwide.1  John Clark leads his followers with "revelations" which he claims to get straight from God. Most of these "revelations" contradict the Bible and some of them even contradict Mr. Clark's other "revelations."  This group is very exclusive as can be seen from a "revelation" which was allegedly given to Clark on October 18, 1998 when he claims that "the Spirit of God spoke" to him telling him that he now had "permission to tell any of God's people in any Christian denomination that they are NOT seeking (God), and that they are NOT obeying (God)."  Clark claims that this is true "in EVERY case."2

Many of Clark's other "revelations" are just as bizarre.  He claims that the Holy Spirit is the blood of Jesus. He believes that none are truly saved who do not speak in tongues.  He denies the doctrine of the Trinity.  He lowers the deity of Christ to the level of an exalted man.  He believes that God has abolished the ordinances of water baptism and the Lord's Supper.  Clark either denies or distorts almost every doctrine of evangelical Christianity.  It might be interesting to note that he adamently teaches that tithes should be given to the "minister of God."  Then, he uses his own absurd and unbiblical teachings to make himself the only "minister of God" in the whole world who is seemingly worthy of receiving tithes. 3

Gary Savelli responds to most of the questions sent to this little church's "Isaiah 58 Broadcast and Tract" web site.  In the Questions and Answers section of the web site Savelli claims to have been an Assembly of God pastor. 4   When I questioned Mr. Savelli about this he responded that he had been "licensed October 24th, 1990, by the Northern California / Nevada District."  A phone call to that district office revealed that Savelli had been licensed to minister by the district, but he had never been the senior pastor of an Assembly of God church.  He has never been elected to the position of pastor.  He has never been called by an Assembly to be a pastor. Yet, he claims to have been a pastor. He claims to have held that position.  This is a strange claim from Savelli since he also states that those who hold the position of a pastor are out of the will of God.  Why would he claim to have been a pastor which he repudiates as a sinful position and contrary to the will of God?  Especially if he had never actually held that position.  This is just one of the many bizarre things which are found on the "Isaiah 58 Broadcast and Tracts" web site.

There is only ONE TRUE GOD, in the Bible.  All the rest are false gods and no gods at all (2Chron.13:9, Isa.37:19, Acts 19:26, Gal.4:8).  When John David Clark relegates Jesus to being a lesser God than Jehovah (as he does in his tract titled "Is Jesus God"5 ), then he has in essence made Jesus a false god and no god at all. The Jews whom God used to write the Bible were monotheists, believing in the existence of only one God. Monotheism is the only understanding which is true to the whole revelation of God.  Monotheism is what the Bible teaches.  Polytheism (the belief in more than one god) is a pagan belief, and is the exact opposite of what the Jews believed.  In spite of the fact that some have claimed that the doctrine of the Trinity is polytheistic, this is not the case. Trinitarians teach the Biblical doctrine of  ONE GOD in three Persons.

Isaiah 43:10 teaches that there is no God but Jehovah. John 1:1 teaches that Jesus is God. Therefore, Jesus must be Jehovah.
Isaiah 43:10 (ASV)
10  Ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me."
John 1:1
1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us...

Was there ANY god formed BEFORE Jehovah?   The text says NO. Is there ANY god AFTER Jehovah?  The text says NO. This means that the only God that exists is Jehovah.  Any time a true and living God is mentioned in the Bible it must be Jehovah that is referred to because Isaiah 43:10 (quoted above) is very plain that the only God that exists is Jehovah.  Since John 1:1 states that Jesus is God, Jesus must be Jehovah.

Isa. 44:24 teaches that Jehovah made all things while John 1:3 says Jesus made all things.  Obviously, Jesus is Jehovah.
Isa 44:24 (ASV)
24  Thus saith Jehovah, thy Redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb: I am Jehovah, that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth (who is with me?);
John 1:3
3  Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has
been made

Isa. 43:11 teaches that Jehovah is the only Savior, and Titus 2:13 tells us that Jesus is the Savior. Therefore, Jesus must be Jehovah.
Isa.43:11 (ASV)
11  I, even I, am Jehovah; and besides me there is no saviour.
Titus 2:13
13  ...while we wait for the blessed hope--the glorious appearing of our great God
and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 6:1-5 says Isaiah saw Jehovah's glory, and John 12:41 teaches that Isaiah saw Jesus' glory. Thus, Jesus must be Jehovah.
Isa. 6:1-5 (ASV)
1  In the year that king Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple.
2  Above him stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
3  And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is Jehovah of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
4  And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5  Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of hosts.
John 12:41 (NIV)
41 Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus' glory and spoke about him.
Isaiah 24:8 teaches that Jehovah will not share His glory with any other, whereas Revelation 5:12-13 teach that the Father and Jesus the Son receive glory together.  Obviously, they share glory, thus they are both Jehovah.
Isaiah 42:8 (ASV)
8  I am Jehovah, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another,
Revelation 5:12-13
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.
13  And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

Exodus 34:14 and Matt. 4:10 teach that only Jehovah is to be worshipped, whereas Matthew 28:16-17 and Hebrews 1:6 teach that Jesus is worshipped.  Therefore, Jesus must be Jehovah.
Exodus 34:14 (ASV)
14  for thou shalt worship no other god: for Jehovah, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:
Matt. 4:10
10  ...Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Matt. 28:16-17
16  Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
17  And when they saw him, they worshipped him:
Hebrews 1:6 (NIV)
6  And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says,  "Let all God's angels worship him."

   A. From Prov. 8:22-23 and 29-30 John Clark falsely teaches that Christ was created.
In John Clark's tract, "The Father and the Son" he falsely teaches that the "wisdom of God" in Proverbs 8 is a refererence to Christ.  Clark states:
        "...Christ, the 'wisdom of God', speaks of the beginning of his life with Jehovah the Father:
        The Lord created me in the very beginning of His way, long before His works. I was made
        in eternity, at the first, before the world began...
        ...King David continued his glorious testimony of God's Son in Proverbs 8: When He
        appointed the foundations of the earth, then I was by Him, as one brought up with Him.
        And I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him..." 6

Compare how this passage is rendered in the New American Standard Bible.
Proverbs 8:22-23 & 29-30 (NASB)
22  The LORD possessed me at the beginning of His way, Before His works of old.
23  From everlasting I was established, From the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth.
29  ...When He marked out the foundations of the earth;
30  Then I was beside Him, as a master workman; And I was daily His delight, Rejoicing always before Him

As any faithful student of the Scriptures can see, Clark's interpretation of Proverbs 8 not only violates the context of the Book of Proverbs, it also violates the whole of Scripture.  The first nine chapters of Proverbs deal with wisdom personified.  Personification is a rhetorical figure of speech in which inanimate objects or abstract concepts are endowed with human qualities or are represented as possessing human form.  In Proverbs chapters 1-9, wisdom is figuratively endowed with human qualities.  Clark consistently fails to understand the concept of personification in the Scriptures and misinterprets numerous other passages for the same reason as here.  Notice that there is nothing in chapter eight which indicates it should be interpreted any differently from chapters 1-7 and 9.  This being so, if we take Proverbs 8:22-23 and 8:29-30 to speak literally about Christ, we must also assume that Christ is a woman who cries in the streets (1:20-21), and that Christ once lived with someone named Prudence (8:12) in a house with seven pillars (9:1).  Proverbs 1-9 makes no sense when one attempts to read Christ into it!

Furthermore, the word in Proverbs 8:22 which Clark has rendered as "created," is the Hebrew word "qanah."  This word is used frequently in Proverbs, but NEVER with the meaning of "create." It is usually translated as "get" or "buy" as with money (Prov.1:5, 4:5, 7, 8:22, 15:32, 16:16, 17:16, 18:15, 19:8, 20:14, 23:23). That is also its consistent translation and meaning in the close to seventy other places where it is used in the Old Testament (see Wigram's Englishman's Hebrew and Chaldee Concordance).

Proverbs 8 reads more smoothly as a poetic expression of how wisdom pre-existed eternally with the Lord.  In previous chapters Solomon has urged his son to "get" wisdom (where "get" is "qanah" the same word as mentioned above from 8:22) (Prov.4:5,7), and this challenge is continued in later
chapters (16:16, 17:16, 19:8).  In Proverbs 3:19-20 Solomon states briefly that God exercised wisdom in His work of creation. Throughout Proverbs chapters 1-9, and especially in chapters 8 and 9, wisdom is personified as a woman who calls out to the city to take instruction from her (ch.8)
and to come to eat at her table in her house (ch.9).

Solomon has continually told his son throughout Proverbs to get wisdom from God and the passage in question (8:22) is simply an answer to the son's implied question of, "When did God get wisdom?" The answer is clear from the context: God had wisdom from everlasting.  In spite of what John Clark teaches, Proverbs 8 does not teach a creation of Christ, but rather points to the fact that God used wisdom in creating the world, therefore wisdom should be used by those living in the world.

  B. From Rev. 3:14 Clark falsely teaches that Christ is a created being.
In John Clark's tract, "The Father and the Son" he falsely teaches from Rev. 3:14 that Christ is a created being:
            "In John's Revelation, Jesus reaffirmed this testimony of his own creation by calling
            himself "the beginning of the creation of God" (Rev.3: 14). 6

In response to Clark's claims that Rev. 3:14 teaches a Christ which had a "beginning" it should be noted that the Greek word "arche" is translated "beginning" in the KJV and "ruler" in the NIV. Vine's Expository Dictionary says, "The root 'arch' primarily indicated what was of worth. Hence the verb 'archo' meant 'to be first,' and 'archon' denoted 'a ruler.' This word is Strong's Gk # 746 which carries the meaning of: beginning, corner, first, magistrate, power, principality, principle, ruler depending on the context.
In the following verses it is translated as "magistrates":
    Luke 12:11 "...when they bring you...unto magistrates..."
    Titus 3:1 " obey magistrates..."
In the following verses it is translated as "prinicipalities":
    Romans 8:38 "...nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers..."
    Eph 1:21 "Far above all principality, and power..."
    Eph 3:10 "To the intent that now unto the principalities..."
    Eph 6:12 "...but against principalities..."
    Col 1:16 "...whether they be thrones...or principalities..."
    Col 2:10 "...the head of all principality and power:"
    Col 2:15 "And having spoiled principalities and powers..."
Compare how the New International Version correctly translates this passage, stating that Christ is the "ruler" of creation rather than its "beginning."
Rev 3:14 (NIV)
14  To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God's creation.

  C. From John 17:5 John Clark falsely claims that Jesus is a created being.
In the tract, "The Father and the Son" John David Clark falsely teaches of a created Christ from John 17:5.
            "Before anything existed, the Father created for Himself a Son (Jn.17:5), who then
            created everything else (Col.1:16-17)." 6

In response to Clark's teaching, I will merely quote John 17:5 below showing the obvious fact that there is no mention in this verse of Christ being "created."
John 17:5 (KJV)
5  And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

Back to Table of Contents

  D. From Colossians 1:16-17 John Clark falsely teaches that the Father created the Son.
In the tract, "The Father and the Son" John David Clark falsely teaches of a created Christ from John 17:5.
            "Before anything existed, the Father created for Himself a Son (Jn.17:5), who then
            created everything else (Col.1:16-17).  The Father created the Son, "the firstborn
            of every creature", and the Son created all other things. This is easily understood
            and clearly proclaimed in the Scriptures." 6

Since I have had ample experience dealing with these same verses when conversing with Jehovah's Witnesses, and since it is obvious that Clark has taken much of his theology of the Godhead from the Jehovah's Witnesses, I presume that he meant to reference Col.1:15-16 rather than verses 16-17 above. I will quote verses 15-17 below and deal with all three verses.

Colossians 1:15-17
15  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

The word "FIRSTBORN" is the English translation of the Greek word "prototokos" pronounced (pro-tot-ok'-os) which is Strong's #4416 which means first-born (usually as a noun, literally or figuratively). A literal firstborn must be the child that is born first to his parents. The figurative firstborn is the one who although not born to those parents, still has the benefits of the firstborn.  Jesus was not a literal firstborn of God, He is figuratively the firstborn in that He has the responsibilities and benefits of the firstborn of God.  He passes those privileges on to us and makes us joint-heirs with Him.

Vine's Expository Dictionary says:
            prototokos ^4416^, "firstborn" (from protos, "first," and tikto, "to beget"), is used of
   His relationship to the Father, expressing His priority to, and preeminence
            over, creation, not in the sense of being the "first" to be born. In Col. 1:15, where His
            eternal relationship with the Father is in view, the clause means both that He was
            figuratively the "Firstborn" before all creation and that He Himself produced creation
            (the genitive case being objective, as <v. 16> makes clear). Christ was figuratively the
            firstborn and He is unique in His relation to the Father in that, being an eternal Being,
            He was not literally created or birthed of God. He is figuratively the firstborn and is
            given the benefits and the responsibilities of the Firstborn of Almighty God.

Col 1:16-17 proves this fact when it says "ALL" things were created through Him. If He was a created being, it would have to say "all other things" were created by Him.

  E. From Psalms 82:1 and 97:7 John Clark falsely teaches that men are true "gods."
In the tract titled "Is Jesus God", Clark falsely teaches that men may truly be gods:
            In light of such comments, found throughout the writings of the prophets, it is remarkable
            that we should also find in certain Scriptures that "gods" are mentioned as if they were
            real beings! For example, "God standeth in the congregation of the mighty. He judgeth
            among the gods" (Ps.82:1), and "Worship him, all ye gods" (Ps.97:7). How is it possible
            that God "judges among the gods", if there are no other gods? Or how can the gods
            worship Him, as the Psalmist demands, if those gods do not exist? The answer to these
            seemingly contradictory statements is that, while the idols were vain, and the gods they
            represented were nothing, there were certain people who were called "gods", even by
            God Himself! 7

Compare these verses as they are rendered in the two following translations:
Psalm 82:1 (NASV)
1  God takes His stand in His own congregation; He judges in the midst of the rulers.
Psalm 97:7 (NRSV)
7  All worshipers of images are put to shame, those who make their boast in worthless idols; all gods bow down before him. (notice that the false wooden "gods" will fall or bow down to the Living God)

In this tract Clark claims that there are many creatures recognized in the Bible as "gods" in the sense of mighty ones.  Under the term "gods" Clark eventually includes Jesus Christ, Moses, angels, human
judges, and Satan among others.  To even insinuate that an orthodox Jew would recognize more than one God is simply out of the question.  Historically the Jews have been monotheists, believing in only one God.  In his tract "The Father and the Son" when Clark speaks of the O.T. writers not understanding who Jesus was, he implies the same thing that I am explicitly stating here about the Jews being monotheists.  He seems to have forgotten that teaching when he received this supposed "revelation" about the Jews believing that men were "gods."

Furthermore, the Bible plainly teaches that there is only ONE TRUE GOD (John 17:3, 2Chron.15:3, Jer.10:10, 1Thess.1:9, and 1John 5:20), in contrast to all other gods, (which are FALSE GODS), WHO ARE NO GODS AT ALL (Ps.96:5, Isa.37:19, 41:23-24, 29, Jer.2:11, 5:7, 16:20, 1Cor.8:4, 10:19-20).  According to the whole counsel of God, there are only two categories of "gods": true Gods (of which there is only one - that is Jehovah) and false gods (of which there are many).  See the section above on Jehovah to learn the Scriptural truth that Jesus is Jehovah and that Jehovah is the name of the Trinity.

  F. From Rev 3:14 and 22:13 Clark teaches that the Father only created the Son (Jesus).
In the tract titled "Is Jesus God", Clark falsely teaches that the Father created Jesus Christ, then he further teaches the false doctrine that the Son was the only creation of the Father.
            "The Son is "the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last" of
            the Father's creation (Rev.3:14; 22:13), for he is all that the Father ever personally
            created. After being created by the Father, the Son created everything else." 7

First, notice that neither of the verses referenced by John necessarily say that the Father "created" the Son.
Rev.3:14 (NIV)
14  To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:  These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God's creation.
Rev.22:13 (NIV)
13  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

Next, notice that Isaiah 40:28, 42:5, 44:24, and 45:18 show that Jehovah created the heavens and the earth. Since the Scriptures also teach that Jesus created all things, Jesus must be Jehovah.
Isaiah 40:28 (ASV)
28  Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard? The everlasting God, Jehovah, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary; there is no searching of his understanding.
Isaiah 42:5 (ASV)
5  Thus saith God Jehovah, he that created the heavens, and stretched them forth; he that spread abroad the earth and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
Isaiah 44:24 (ASV)
24  Thus saith Jehovah, thy Redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb: I am Jehovah, that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth (who is with me?);
Isaiah 45:18 (ASV)
18  For thus saith Jehovah that created the heavens, the God that formed the earth and made it, that established it and created it not a waste, that formed it to be inhabited: I am Jehovah; and there is none else.

Before we leave Mr. Clark's teaching above on "the first and the last" please notice also that he agrees with Christian theology that Jesus is "the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last" (Rev 1:10, 11, 12, 17-18).  Yet the Bible teaches that Jehovah alone is "the first, and . . . the last"  in Isaiah 44:6. Since, by simple definition, there can be only one first and one last, it is obvious that Jesus is Jehovah. God has manifested Himself in Jesus Christ "the first and the last" (Revelation 1:17,18) as the Scriptures and the Christian Church maintain.

  G. From John 10:34-35, John Clark teaches that some men are truly gods.
In John Clark's tract, "Is Jesus God" he makes the following statement:
            "Jesus stated that the Father "called them gods unto whom the Word of God
            came" (Jn.10:34-35). So, while heathen gods were "nothing", those men and
            women anointed by God to bear His Word to His people were "gods",
            because they had a divine authority to judge and to teach others." 7

John Clark has twisted this particular passage of Scripture to his own undoing.  No distortion of these verses can take away from the clear message of John 10:30 which plainly says that Jesus and the Father are one.  When John David Clark attempts to prove that men are "gods" in the same sense that Jesus is God, he runs squarely into the fact that worship of anointed men and women is totally wrong and is forbidden by God's Word. Peter refused to be worshipped (Acts 10:26). Angels refused to be worshipped (Rev.19:10 & 22:9).  It is wrong to worship any but the True and Living God (Matt. 4:10). On the other hand, Jesus openly accepted worship from his followers (Matt.28:9&17, John 20:28, Luke 24:52, Rev.5:13-14).  Therefore, Jesus must be the True and Living God.  The term "God" elicits honor and worship, however the term "gods" conveyed the idea of the corrupt judges which were mentioned in Psalm 82.  In going overboard in attempting to make the Son of God to be like the judges and prophets of the Old Testament, this false teacher (John David Clark) is coming close to exhalting them to a status where they would be worthy of worship among Clark's followers.  Furthermore, if Christ is a created being, as Clark claims in other places (see above) then worshipping Jesus would be creature worship according to Romans 1:25.
Romans 1:25 (NIV)
25  They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-who is forever praised. Amen.

Remission of sin required the shedding of blood.
Hebrews 9:22
22  ...and without shedding of blood is no remission.

Jesus was the appointed Lamb of God whose blood would remove the sin of the world.
John 1:29
29  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

According to Hebrews 9:14, Jesus shed His blood to cleanse us from acts that lead to death, and according to Romans 6:23 it is "sin" that leads to death.  Therefore, Jesus' literal blood paid the price for our sin.
Hebrews 9:14 (NIV)
14  How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
Romans 6:23a
23  The wages of sin is death...

Jesus justified us with His blood.
Romans 5:9
9  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him

Jesus released us from our sins with His blood.
Revelation 1:5 (NASV)
...To Him who loves us, and released us from our sins by His blood,

Back to Table of Contents

John Clark teaches that the blood of Christ is the Holy Spirit.  In his tract titled "The Blood of Christ," Clark makes the following statements about the Holy Spirit and the blood of Jesus:
            "This Spirit, sent from heaven upon these humble disciples, is the true blood of Christ
            which we must drink if we hope to live forever with God.  It is the true blood of Christ
            which still is flowing and cleansing souls from sin. Jesus' natural blood, precious as it
            was, could not reach the soul. Jesus' blood was human blood, as corruptible as is
            yours and mine. God never intended to use the natural blood which flowed in Jesus'
            human body to wash sins away... ...This is the Holy Ghost, the cleansing blood of
            Jesus Christ.  As a result of ignorance of this truth concerning the blood of Christ,
            many believe that the blood of Christ washed their sins away before they received, or
            were baptized with, the Holy Ghost. But sin cannot be washed away before one
            receives the Spirit, because the Spirit is the blood that washes sin away." 8

Seeing that John Clark rigidly believes that the blood of Jesus is the Holy Spirit, we should test his belief against the Scriptures by seeing if his definition of the blood of Jesus works when it is plugged into a passage of Scripture which he fails to mention or take note of.  If Clark is correct, then his definition of the blood of Jesus should work just as well as the term which it defines. Let's compare Luke 22:20.
Luke 22:20.
20  ...This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

To test Clark's definition, we will remove the word "blood" and replace it with the word "Holy Spirit."  If Clark was correct, it should make just as much sense to use the definition as it does to use the term "blood."  When we exchange the definition for the term, it says, "This cup is the new testament in my Holy Spirit, which *IS* shed for you."  Notice that Luke 22:20 doesn't say that Christ blood WAS shed, it says "IS" (present tense) shed.  Is the Holy Spirit presently "shed" from Christ?  No!  Does John Clark's definition of the blood of Christ work in this passage of Scripture?  No!  Is the blood of Jesus the Holy Spirit? NO!

As I have shown above, the blood of Jesus, was Christ's literal blood which was literally shed to put away our sin.

            ...We might also add that the tithe belongs to GOD'S minister, not "any" minister.
            Christian ministers are not God's ministers, because they are not preaching or teaching

            ...This man is a minister of Satan, and to give your tithe to him, is to give your tithe to
            the enemy of your soul, and the enemy of the Church. Your tithe belongs to the one
            who has an anointing, and ministers according to the power "that God giveth" - the
            power of the holy Ghost."
