In the New Testament, the word “firstfruits” was mentioned about 8 times, and none was refereed to for offering or money, because in the New Testament, Jesus Christ became our Firstfruits sacrifice of offering unto God, and the offering of firstfruits is no longer necessary and biblical.

1 Corinthians 15:20, “But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.”

1 Corinthians 15:23, “But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.”

In the New Testament, first-fruits is no longer monetary or food offering but Christ became our Firstfruits, and then every person who first gives his life to Jesus in a family is the firstfruit of that family; people who first give their lives to Jesus in a particular community or country are the firstfruits of that location, and every first church in a particular community or country is the first-fruit of that place.

Romans 16:5, “Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who is the first-fruits of Achaia to Christ.”

James 1:18, “Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first-fruits of His creatures.”

There is nothing like first fruits offering in the New Testaments. First fruits offering became popular in the recent time from modern prosperity preachers. If your church or G. O is asking you to your first salary as a first fruit, know for sure that, that church cares for your money than your soul.

Jesus Christ never asked for firstfruits, Apostles never asked the church for firstfruits, even Apostle Paul in all the collections of offerings from churches never asked for firstfruits offering.

You must be a Bible believing Christian, not a church or daddy G.O believing Christian. In this end time, only Christians who search and stand solely on the Bible will not be scammed or strayed away.

God bless you!
