Tamari's Testimony Part 1
The angel called me, “Pilgrim on the journey to heaven” “Here I am,” I said. He asked, "Have you returned to God by giving your tithes, or did you continue in rebellion against the Most High God?"
In the midst of unpublished severe persecution inside Rwanda, in a place where killings, kidnappings, enforced disappearances, imprisonment and gross injustice are taking place daily - God is visiting many Rwandans in a face to face encounters. God shows them heaven, hell and the vast spiritual world. The revelations are life changing but they come at a very heavy and high price.
A Journey to the Heavenly Gate
A Rwandan woman by the name of Tamari Mukarugwiza gave her life to Jesus and began to follow God faithfully. She was tested to overcome the loss of her husband, the loss of her 6 children out of 12. In spite of severe trials, she continued to serve God faithfully. She was tested to overcome the idols in her husband family; she was severely beaten 12 times to the point of death and endured the beatings with LOVE & FORGIVENESS to the end. On her 12the time beating, Jesus came and comforted her and took her to show her the glory of heaven. Following is an excerpt from her journey, and the lesson here is about Tithing and the tither’s book of records.
Have You Opened Your Heavenly Bank Account?
After much suffering and persecution for His name's sake, Jesus came and took me to the Heavenly Kingdom. We reached a roadblock when they stopped me. Because Jesus is the King of kings, no one can stop Him. On this roadblock, I found a very large building, the like of which I had never seen in this world before. The door to the building was closed. A certain man was there and called me, "Pilgrim on the heavenly journey, come here, I have something I want to ask you."
When I got close to him, he said, "I'm going to ask you some questions, so please answer me." He asked me, "Are you ready?" I said, "Yes." He said to me, "Do you remember the words that Jesus said while He was on earth?"
“Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished” Matthew 5:17-18. May the God of Peace be praised!
He asked me, "do you remember these words?" I responded that I remembered them. He asked me then, "once you learned that Jesus did not come to abolish the commandments or the prophets, do you remember also the words which Malachi prophesied when he was inspired by God's Spirit, when God sent him to His people?” I also told him that I remembered them as it is written in Malachi 3:7-10 “From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My statutes and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” says the LORD of hosts. “But you say, ‘How shall we return?’ “Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, ‘How have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. 9“You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing Me, the whole nation of you! “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.”
He called, “Pilgrim on the journey to heaven” “Here I am,” I said. He asked, "Have you returned to God by giving your tithes, or did you continue in rebellion against the Most High God?" I told him that I returned to God with all my heart and that I give Him my tithes. He thanked me very much and opened the building for me. I went inside and looked. I saw that there was a great number of books that I couldn't tell how many. He told me that as in the world they have banks, each member having a membership card so that when they go to that bank, though they might find new bank staff, they would be welcome in, in the same way, by having the membership, they are immediately served, welcomed and all their problems attended to.
Records for Tithers
He explained that this means that even these books you see here, they are for those who profess to be the members of the Heavenly Kingdom. “These books you are seeing here are the records for tithers. When they tithe, they open their account in the Kingdom of heaven. On earth, humans keep the bank cards/check books and take them everywhere they go. Members of the Heavenly kingdom, once they start tithing, it means they have opened their accounts and this is a place where their books are kept. When pilgrims reach this place then, we ask them to come into this building but we first ask if they have opened their account in the Heavenly Kingdom by giving their tithes." He continued to say, "when they reach here, we welcome them in this building so that they can show us their own book of record for their tithes. So come on in, after you find yours, we will verify the status of your membership; we will then give you a pass certificate that you will present once you reach the gates of heaven.” He asked me again if I had opened the account in the kingdom of heaven and I nodded. He thanked me and told me that I could proceed to find my book of tithes records so that they can verify that I was indeed a true member of the kingdom of heaven.
But he asked me also, “before you open the book for us, there is one more question I would like to ask you before you come in. Dear fellow pilgrim on the journey to heaven, after you have opened your account to give tithes, do you remember the advice Jesus Christ gave to His people who would open the account in heaven?” I told him that I remembered the advice. My beloved friend, what advice did Jesus Christ give to those who would open the account in heaven and begin to give tithes? “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:19-21)
“Now, my dear fellow pilgrim on the journey to heaven, after knowing the advice Jesus Christ gave to His people who have opened their account in heaven, did you just open an account and did nothing else or did you open an account and continue to deposit into it.” I let him know that I was a tither and he thanked me for that. And confirmed, “indeed, it is the advice He gave to them, to not store up their riches in the world.”
He said, “first, we will check to see if you have truly opened an account and tithed and after this, we will give you a letter that you must take with you which will be your pass.
Secondly, we will also check to see if you have made any deposits in that account. After that we will put a seal upon it.” He then told me to enter in, and that when I find the book, they would verify those two things.
Do Not Bank in the Kingdom of satan
Those who have banked in the devil’s kingdom will dwell with the devil. Those who banked in heaven will live in heaven with their heavenly Father. I entered the house to find my book. I went, looked for the book and I found it. I submitted it to them so that they may check that I had done it right. After I submitted my book, they began to review it and I noticed that there were others also who had come before me. I saw that amongst them, there were those who were given their books back.
To the first one, I saw that they brought back the book saying, “your book of records is full of fraud. You must take it and give it to your father satan, he is a deceiver, and the people who serve him are deceivers. Go find the devil whom you served. But God is holy and He works with those who are holy. Deceivers are the devil’s. Go and find your father whom you served.” After they gave it back to this person, they received it and started looking at it. When the person looked at it, they said, "My fellow pilgrim, partaker on the journey to heaven, please help advocate for me. I didn't know that there is injustice here, but I have been wronged here in this place.” We asked how and what injustice it was. The person told us we should take a look at their book.
Is There a Question Mark on Your Tithes?
We approached and looked into that book they had returned to the person. On the first page, we saw that they had written: The date, the month, the year and after that there was a question mark (?).
On the following paragraph, they wrote: The date, the month, the year and after that there was a question mark (?).
And the next one: Date, month, year and a question mark (?).
In short, it was a book full of question marks. After that we told the person, “Dear fellow pilgrim on the journey to heaven, you are asking us to advocate for you; we see that they wrote in this book in this manner, we see the times and question marks but we do not understand what it means. How can we advocate for you? When they wrote in this book, we were not here, how can we know what it means? The person said, “no, please help me, advocate for me because I have done nothing wrong. Even my earthly teacher who led us can testify to this.” The person pointed to the earth where we had come from, showing us that even the teacher who was the spiritual authority was giving a testimony about the person saying that they have made it to heaven. The person said, “but look, here in this place they are telling me to go and join my father satan.”
We then looked at the book the teacher was holding so that we can match both of them. We saw the teacher who used to be the spiritual authority had also a book. We looked and we started matching both books to see what relationship they had in common. We looked in both books, we saw that in the book the teacher held it showed that: On the 5th of January of a certain year, the record was in both books. Dates, days and years matched perfectly. The difference was that the book at the roadblock had a question mark at the end, but at the teacher’s book of records, there was a certain amount of money.(Please note the tithing amount is in Rwanda Francs).
When they recorded for example the 5th of the first month, in a certain year, where the angels put a question mark, in the teacher’s book, it had instead 5,000. On the next line, it was written the date, the month and the year and they had put a question mark; but in the teacher’s records there was written 4,000. On the next line, it was also the date, month and year and there was a question mark but in the teacher’s records, it was 10,000. We kept looking and saw that at the teachers there were 40,000 but in the angels’ records there was a question mark. We kept looking and the teachers records showed 50,000 but in the angel’s records, it showed a question mark.
At the end we concluded that this person had been indeed denied justice. We said that the problem is that these two books almost match, the only difference was that there were the earthly records which showed the amount while the heavenly records showed only a question mark.
After looking back, we began to talk about the amount of money the person tithed. The first time, they gave 5,000 and it was rejected; the second time, they gave 4,000 and they rejected it. The third time, they gave 10,000 and it was also rejected. Next, the person gave 40,000 and it was also rejected. And then they gave 50,000 and it was also rejected. We began to think. Rejecting their tithes show that the person is indeed suffering from injustice. Wasn’t this money enough? By rejecting it, isn’t that a proof that this person is victim of some type of injustice? After this we said that there is no one who is going to win their case here, no one is going to say that they will make it to heaven. See how the person gave 50,000 and it was rejected, when they gave 40,000 it did not pass either, we concluded that it was clear, nobody was going to make it to this heaven!
Now we examined ourselves and I said that sometimes I tithed just 500, or 1,000; I sometimes gave 2,000 or 3,000; others testified that they just gave 100, or 200. So we concluded by looking at the amount the person had given. The person had given 5,000 and it got rejected, even when they gave 4,000 it was also rejected; when they gave 40,000 it was also rejected even 50,000 was rejected. We said “what about us who gave 20, 50; can we even be accepted? Is there any hope to be accepted. We said, if 50,000 was rejected, do you think our tithes have even a value here? We decided, “Let's stand together here and defend this person; there is no one who will win their case here. If they see us standing and united together, speaking and standing for one person, maybe they will say that these people have been denied all justice and maybe let them cross over to the other side. So, let's stand together and support each other; let’s support this person, and then they also can come to defend us. You see here, it does not seem like anyone will pass, they will make us go back.”
We were hoping that they may hopefully look at the great number of people and change their minds, just like how on earth they pay attention to the multitude. We were hoping that if they see a great multitude of us together, they would say that this person indeed is winning.
We told the person that we will advocate for them but we requested the person that after their case, they should also remain and not leave so that they can also help us. The person agreed.
The Angel of Interpretation
While we were thus busy talking about these things, the angel who had told us to find our books told us to wait for the Angel of Interpretation who will come to give us explanation.
The Angel Interpreter came. We were very emotional when this angel entered through the door, knowing the case of our new friend and having promised that we will advocate for him. We said quickly, "there is a person here who is enduring injustice. We will defend this person." We all raised our voice to speak up for the person. While we said thus, we wanted our friend to be strong, and know that we are behind them and that also after their case, they should also come to our defense."
The angel of interpretation came, He raised his right hand and bid us to be still. He said that lawyers were not allowed in that place. After He spoke, it was all calm. All of us were speechless. We quieted down and said that we must wait, how can it be that this person is denied the pass to move forward? So we had thought that if they see a lot of people on the person side, they should let the person go but that's not how they work there.
A Fearful Barrier
I have to say that since then that place is a fearful place to me. This roadblock is terrible place. Imagine a place where you might come walking with your husband, and they tell you, “Go back" and your husband cannot speak up for you because there are no lawyers allowed in that place! Imagine a place where you might go together with your wife and they tell her, “Depart, go to your father the devil" and the husband is unable to speak for you because there are no lawyers allowed! A place Where parents will be with their children, and when the parents are turned back, the children are not able to speak! This is the place I saw the most terrifying. This barrier is a terrible place.
The Interpreting Angel approached the owner of the book and said, "you who have questions, I am coming to give you explanation as to why they gave you back this book and why they told you to go back to your father satan."
He approached the person and said, "do you remember that on the 5th day of the first month, God blessed you with 60,000? Do you remember this?" The interpreter angel turned towards us and told us So, "you who want to be the lawyers, how much is the tithe of 60,000?" We all said 6,000. He asked us, "You who are testifying that this person is a righteous person who is going home to heaven, how much money is written in the teacher's records?" We all said, 5,000. The angels asked us if the tithe was worthy or not worthy? We all said that it was not worthy. The angel asked the owner of the book, "is this tithe whole?" And the person responded that it was not the whole tithe. After this, he explained that here they do not write down the amount people give. If we were to put the amount we would write down: They gave 5,000 and defrauded 1,000. So because we do not write down the amount of money, instead we put a question mark, and you can defend yourself when you arrive here. What does this mean? It means that when people give part of their tithes instead of the whole tithe, we put a question mark and people can defend their case when they are here.
Fellow brothers and sister in Christ, anyone who hear this message, if you are a Christian who do not give the whole tithe, please know that there are questions marks on your records; and you will have to stand in court for judgement and give an account when you arrive there.
If you do not give your tithes as a whole, maybe I should encourage you to start looking for your own lawyers before time; but for us, when we arrived at this place, they refused telling us lawyers are not accepted. May the God of peace save us from all evil. They gave this person their book back because they had defrauded. We looked, we saw that they gave some of their tithes, and the teacher on earth was testifying and praising on their behalf that they were righteous, but today I want to tell you that instead of you receiving the testimony of people of this world, let God be the one to testify about you. The teacher on earth was saying that this person has gone to heaven to be with the Lord while at the roadblock they were telling the person “Depart and go be with your father the devil.” So my beloved friend, be righteous and fear the eye of God instead of fearing the eye of men.
A-Once-in a Life-Time Chance
I can say that this person was given rare chance, the last chance, an opportunity that is not given to many people. The person had an orphan child that they were raising up. The angels said because of this act of kindness, “you are given more time to live longer, go back to the earth, and mend your ways; learn to separate the shameful from what is praise worthy. Due to that child you have adopted, you are given this chance; let your good works be real and start all over, open your heavenly account so that you have a place where it can be written.”
As the person tithed partially, even their work did not count in the heavenly records because they did not have an account there, for their account was with satan, because they were deceivers, even their works were not being recorded in heaven. But because of the orphan they adopted, God's grace and chances were accorded to them so that they could open an account in heaven, so that what they did could begin to be recorded in heaven.
Now every time I preach and get to this, I always tell people to remember that the chances of the dove are not that of other birds. And the chances of a sheep are not that of a goat. There are times you might think to yourself that when you arrive at this roadblock, you will come back like it happened to this person but when you reach there, instead you find them telling you to go to satan your father. After this, the person was given their second chance.
There was another person who also had a book and had questions. This person also asked, "Angel of Interpretation, would you explain to me, because they also gave me the book and told me to go to my father the devil?" We will look then at what was written in this other book.
In this book was written the date, the month, the year and they added a dash. On the next line was written the date, the month, the year and they added a check mark And the next line was written date, month, year and they added a question mark. This person's book was composed of a dash, a check mark and a question mark _V ?
They gave the book back to the person telling the person to go and be with the father who is satan. After giving the book, they said that the person was treacherous. The person asked for some explanations. The angel drew closer, but before explaining, the angel asked, "you who are here, do you have understanding of who is given the book of tithes records? To whom is it written and when is it written? The angel explained that the book of tithes records is given to those believers who have been baptized, those believers who were immersed into the Jordan and are baptized. This book does not concern those who are not yet baptized. When then do they write this book for them?
___ Mark: I might not have a job with a salary; maybe I do not have a business so that I can give out of my gain but it is possible that someone may give me a gift of 20,000. The tithes for that means 2,000 but because maybe I have so much problem, I then borrow the 2,000 promising that I will bring it back. But days in, days out, I am unable to pay it back. Suppose that I go to church and there again they teach about giving the tithes, and I am convinced, then I ask God for forgiveness for not giving the tithe properly. Right there, the angel who keeps the records marks it with a DASH meaning that I used all the money that were meant for tithes. It means that you have asked for forgiveness for not tithing, you have used it but repented; they then add a DASH.
V Mark: It is possible that in a certain month, let's say December, I might borrow but then bringing it back becomes a problem. Let's say that in January things are looking better and when I get the money, I bring it because I already have my heavenly account, and let's say this time I bring the whole tithes. They then write the date, the month, and the year and then they mark it with V check because I brought the whole tithes.
? Mark: Where there is a question mark is where someone did not tithe at all or they only gave a partial amount of their tithes.
So Jesus Christ told me to tell the pilgrims on the journey to heaven that anyone who gives a divided tithe, a partial tithe is a robber and will incur a big loss. He said, “tell that person to go ahead and consume all of their tithes to the fullest, so that they will be punished once and for all for consuming it all. Instead of giving partial tithes so that they put a question mark to it, let that person consume all of their money and let them enjoy it once and for all to the fullest, because they already have a big loss.” The person who did not give it at all and the person who gave it partially, before God they are both treacherous and deceivers. When they reach this roadblock, they will be told to go to their father the devil whom they served. This is a big loss for the pilgrim on the journey to heaven. Instead of dividing and giving it partially, you would rather consume it once and for all and receive the beatings for it once and for all. May the Lord of peace help us!
These books are real and each person have their own book and it is written differently. Let each person examine themselves, how is yours written? How does it look like? Do you even have a book there? And if so, have you ever had the zeal to open and make deposits in your heavenly account? How is it marked? _ ? or V?
The person whom they give the pass certificate is a person who after they have repented for not paying their tithes, each time they get some revenue, each time they get paid, as they receive, they give it properly, these are the ones who receive the V mark. These are the people who will receive the pass that they show when they get to the gates of heaven. It is a proof that they have righteously given. Because our God is righteous, He works with the righteous. God is holy, He works with those who are holy. The treacherous, the deceivers are satan's, may the Lord save us!
Be Righteous in What God Has Given
Everyone must stand there individually, on their own. So, there was something we thought about when we saw this person who had a book containing the records. We told ourselves, if they had rejected 10 or 40 or 50 thousand, we who only gave little, what chances would we have in this place? But somehow, I came to like how tithes are recorded there. Those who give little, those who give more are all given a V mark. I might have a husband who has a job that pays him 1,000,000. That means he must bring 100,000 tithes into God's house. When he brings his tithes, they write the date, month, and year and add a V instead of the amount. So if I Tamari Mukarugwiza have a job, or I sell something and I earn about 500 only, this means I would bring my 50 in tithes. Here, they will write the date, month and year and add a V. They don't write the amount I gave. This means everyone should be righteous in what God has given him whether little or much. God does not look at how much we have given, but he looks at whether we have been faithful and righteous in what He has given us. It's not about the large amount you gave, but it is about how faithful you have been in what was given to you. Those who are righteous in their giving receive the V regardless of their amount.
This is where Jesus Christ said the following words,
“For it is just like a man about to go on a journey, who called his own slaves and entrusted his possessions to them. “To one he gave five talents, to another, two, and to another, one, each according to his own ability; and he went on his journey. “Immediately the one who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and gained five more talents. “In the same manner the one who had received the two talents gained two more. “But he who received the one talent went away, and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money. “Now after a long time the master of those slaves came and settled accounts with them. “The one who had received the five talents came up and brought five more talents, saying, ‘Master, you entrusted five talents to me. See, I have gained five more talents.’ “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’
“Also the one who had received the two talents came up and said, ‘Master, you entrusted two talents to me. See, I have gained two more talents.’ “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’
“And the one also who had received the one talent came up and said, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow and gathering where you scattered no seed. ‘And I was afraid, and went away and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have what is yours.’“But his master answered and said to him, ‘You wicked, lazy slave, you knew that I reap where I did not sow and gather where I scattered no seed. 27‘Then you ought to have put my money in the bank, and on my arrival I would have received my money back with interest. ‘Therefore take away the talent from him, and give it to the one who has the ten talents. “For to everyone who has, more shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. 30“Throw out the worthless slave into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’” Matthew 25: 14-30
The scriptures above are self-explanatory and there is no need to interpret them. However, the Lord Jesus asked me to share with you the following message found in Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’
Saying Lord, Lord is not what makes us enter the Kingdom of heaven. Those who do the will of our heavenly Father are the ones who enter. May the God of peace save us. There is something I liked about these books. You might hear this testimony and say, “I am finished!” I see that everyone has to find their own books but I do not even know how to read. Remember, it is the inner person who takes the journey, the outer man stays behind. The inner man has eyes and they can see. Do not therefore worry that you might not be able to find your book. Do not even say, “what about me who is blind, how will I find my book or who will help me?” Do not be concerned about that, it is the inner man who takes this journey. This is the place where the psalmist sang a song, “The way to heaven is a highway of holiness and righteousness. Those with unclean hearts will not pass there. Pilgrims though unlearned will not be lost on it.” To God be the glory!
God Blesses with the Right Hand, Extend the Left to Receive Your Tithes
Imagine what it is like to have a book full of questions marks before God! From today forward, please know that God blesses us with the right hand while He extends His left hand to receive our tithes. And also know that God sees everything and everywhere. Books are being written all the times and God looks at them. Though God remain silent, He sees all of them. On that historic day, if you see your book full of question marks, you will not be able to stand before God. There won’t be arguments, there won’t be a trial before God. The books will testify against you.
This is where in Revelation John said,
“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:11-15
Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Cor 9:7).
