The Law of Tithing

By Ananda Ma

I believe and follow the Law of Tithing. It brought order, balance, and peace into my life back all those years ago when my life could only be described as being in chaos. May I suggest that we all read or re-read for ourselves the third chapter of Malachi and the first chapter of Haggai in the Bible, and what Maitreya has written in The Holiest Of The Holies on the Law of Tithing, and/or said in the Satsangs (Discourses), etc.

The Prophet of God, Maitreya (GIWH), is now on earth. He has brought us the Revelation of the Seventh Seal. He has shown us the Way of God. Years ago he revealed that New Jerusalem will be built here in Rio Rancho, New Mexico (of course, the True New Jerusalem is Heaven Itself). He suggested a way to start acquiring land so to start a Community of Light. As we know, a true Community of Light is one where the Eternal Divine Path and God's Laws are followed. The Communities of Light are also the base for the Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth. Could Tithing be the missing key in the implementation of God's Plan on earth?

In the book of Haggai, chapter 1, verses 4-7, we find God warning His people:

Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?

Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.

Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.

Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.

As Maitreya has said, God did not ask our opinion of His Laws. Like the Ten Commandments and keeping the Holy Days of God, Tithing is the Law of God. He demands that we accept and follow His Laws. Why? It is because His Laws help us to be focused on Him and His Ways so that we might progress to reach our Goal, to be(come) Divine.
