MERCHANTS OF FAITH

1. FAITH is God reaching out to man, not the other way, “So then FAITH COMETH BY hearing, and HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD” [Romans 10:17] Beloved, FAITH does not come by joining a Church, but by HEARING; HEARING the Preacher and then HEARING God in your SPIRIT MAN and “The SPIRIT BEARETH WITH OUR SPIRIT, that we are the CHILDREN OF GOD” [Romans 8:16] By FAITH we are DEAD to the FLESH but ALIVE in Jesus Christ, “And they that are Christ’s have CRUCIFIED THE FLESH WITH THE AFFECTIONS and LUSTS” [Galatians 5:24] We LIVE to become WHAT GOD WANTS US TO BE, and not after the pursuit of carnal AMBITIONS and AFFECTIONS. FAITH, therefore, is the ability of God in us to accomplish His PURPOSE, “For it is GOD WHICH WORKETH IN YOU both TO WILL and TO DO of HIS GOOD PLEASURE” [Philippians 2:13] Let us, therefore, be established in the TRUTH and be wary of MERCHANTS OF FAITH who turn the Bible upside down, “For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath” [Mark 4:25]

2. FAITH is kindled in our INNER MAN by REVELATION of God’s IDENTITY, so then, every man “… that cometh to God MUST BELIEVE HE IS, and that HE IS A REWARDER of them that diligently seek him” [Hebrews 11:6] God alone settles the MYSTERY of His IDENTITY, as He did to Peter “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for FLESH and BLOOD HATH NOT REVEALED IT UNTO THEE, BUT MY FATHER which is in heaven” [Matthew 16:17] The MYSTERY is resolved in Jesus Christ, “And without controversy great is the MYSTERY OF GODLINESS: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, … “ [1 Timothy 3:16] When we ACCEPT Jesus Christ as God manifest in FLESH, our INNER MAN is delivered from bondage to SIN, quickened by FAITH and empowered by the SPIRIT of Christ to WILL and DO to PLEASE God. Be warned, those who promise LIBERTY from SIN outside the REVELATION of God manifest in Christ are MERCHANTS OF FAITH, “While they PROMISE THEM LIBERTY, they themselves are the SERVANTS OF CORRUPTION: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage” [2 Peter 2:19] Friend, if all you have is the WITNESS of men, those who assure you of SALVATION in Jesus Christ are MANIPULATE your ignorance, thus says the Lord: “No man can come to me, except the FATHER WHICH HAS SENT ME DRAW HIM: and I will raise him up at the last day [John 6:44]

3. FAITH is the STRENGTH of our CONFIDENCE, “In HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE, WHICH GOD, that cannot lie, PROMISED BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN” [Titus 1:2] Whereas every PROMISE of God is rooted in ETERNAL LIFE, we have by FAITH the SUBSTANCE of EVERLASTING LIFE in this BODY, as it is written: “Now FAITH is the SUBSTANCE of THINGS HOPED FOR, the EVIDENCE of THINGS NOT SEEN” [Hebrews 11:1] The “THINGS HOPED FOR” pertain to TREASURES of EVERLSTING LIFE, of which “… EYE HATH NOT SEEN, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things WHICH GOD HATH PREPRED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM” [1 Corinthians 2:9] Beloved, FAITH is programmed for heavenly TREASURES; those who collect MONEY from you with promises of Abraham’s BLESSING make MERCHANDIZE of your FAITH. Be not deceived, the BLESSING of Abraham was the PROMISE of ETERNAL LIFE, made to the FATHER of FAITH, “That the BLESSING OF ABRAHAM might COME ON THE GENTILES THROUGH JESUS CHRIST; that we might RECEIVE the PROMISE OF THE SPIRIT through FAITH” [Galatians 3:14, read also Hebrews 11:10] The SPIRIT of Christ, which we receive by FAITH is the SUBSTANCE of our FAITH, the “… EARNEST OF OUR INHERITANCE…” in Jesus Christ [Ephesians 1:14] Those who peddle FAITH as MAGNET for earthly goods are MERCHANTS OF FAITH, “… destitute of the truth, SUPPOSING THAT GAIN IS GODLINESS: from such WITHDRAW THYSELF” [1 Timothy 6:5]

4. FAITH is God in us, not a COMMODITY that may be bought, imparted or sold. EVIDENCE of our FAITH are not in “THINGS” that are SEEN, but in living in CONFORMITY to God’s prescribed PATTERN: “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, that he might be the FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN” [Romans 8:29] FAITH is the VALUE of our relationship with God and each man’s FAITH is the measured according to CONFORMITY with Jesus Christ. I must, therefore, warn you of some who present themselves as MODEL for your FAITH, and DISTRACT you with false pretenses. Listen carefully, FAITH is PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with God, not MENTORSHIP, “LOOKING UNTO JESUS the AUTHOR and FINISHER OF OUR FAITH; who for the joy that was set before him ENDURED THE CROSS, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” [Hebrews 12:2] Be prepared to SUFFER, if need be for your FAITH, and “… know ye not that the FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? whosoever therefore will be a FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD” [James 4:4] Resist with all your strength, the entreaties of those who sold their SOUL to be “FRIEND OF THE WORLD”, “That the TRIAL OF YOUR FAITH, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, MIGHT BE FOUND UNTO PRAISE and HONOUR and GLORY AT THE APPEARING OF JESUS CHRIST”[1 Peter 1:7]

5. Accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Saviour, amen
