When The Imagination Becomes Your Priesthood

Imagination Verses The Priesthood Of Faith

When the imagination replaces the priesthood of faith then the deceived vessel finds little reason to value any governing authority outside of their experience. But Noah ‘found grace’. Not in the imagination about God but the sanctified altar of the covenant, which Enoch, Noah’s great grandfather instructed the people on the mount.

Which Hill Are You Standing On: Blessing Or The Curse

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every IMAGINATION of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the IMAGINATION of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more everything living, as I have done." (Genesis 6:5; 8:21)

Noah reflected on the revelations of Enoch which shows that Enoch’s revelation written in the 7th heaven were and is still divinely inspired  ‘God breathed’ for sustaining the life of faith in our soul today.

BY FAITH NOAH, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.”  (Hebrews 11:7)

The righteousness of God is not nurtured by the power of thought but by faith in the covenant priesthood of Christ. Our history is in the bosom of God and Jesus Christ is the captain of our salvation to lead us into the eternal experience of His Light. The imagination flatters the soul with words but God nurtures the soul with His grace and truth.
When His Compassion Replaces The Mercy Of His Covenant: Fables Abound

Where God answers prayers regardless of the issues a person may be faced with, people desire to weigh this answer to prayer to take it captive for their own personal use. God healed so-in-so because of their love, and so they assess and recalibrate their behaviour to match the results accordingly. But then after many years of delay to receive their own blessing accuse God of folly and deny any miracle had ever taken place. Here we see the imagination tethered to scripture to project a desired blessing or profitable outcome. False faith turns to despair.

Prophecy and Promise = Text + Aspiration: The Unequal Yoke

So Ahab called together all the students of Jezebel (Provost) to confirm his desires. False prophets practice by the same spirit today and using the imagination for the scale of inspiration they speak forth by the seducing spirit using the evident circumstances as a witness of truth.  

 “And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to RAMOTHGILEAD, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the king's hand.” “So he came to the king. And the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go against RAMOTHGILEAD to battle, or shall we forbear? And he answered him, Go, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the hand of the king.” (1Kings 22:12 &15)

 

See how dangerous the imagination can be when Satan sees the drive of the aspirations to abandon the reason of faith to accomplish the desired results. No patience is needed, and no faith is required, and why do we need apostles if I can get what I want anyway. 

And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one CASTING OUT devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.(Mark 9:38)

The Altar of Compassion or the Altar of Mercy

My Father’s compassion is seen here which I cannot speak against, but follow Me and you shall see greater things in My mercy. We see this scenario played out over and over again since history was recorded  in the 7th heaven. Satan (father of iniquity) set a record of the heart for all those that desire to change the testimony of God into the fruit of their aspirations. And the fallen Watchers taught sinners to abandon the plan of God and follow their heart. They provided a rich array of choices for the aspirations and rewarded their slaves accordingly with false grace.

When the children of Israel had eaten and were full, even when the food was being chewed they found fault with authority that would rob them of their pleasure. And God sent a plague, a consuming curse upon the soul that would yoke them to despair.

And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was CHEWED, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.” (Numbers 11:33)

Today the False Religious System (FRS) pursues the habits of the self made Christian Faith Culture (CFC) even when God in His compassion gave them dreams and visions, not to confirm them but to fulfil His word to His church. We honour the Father when we honour the Son and we honour Him in the terms of His covenant where His mercy is as the Mercy seat upon the Ark of the covenant. This teaches us that the Witness is greater than the Record because the sanctification is necessary for His mercy to be revealed.

When God authorized a healing to take place (as the Spirit wills) then the FRS took ownership of His compassion in healing and made a standard of authenticity. They wrote many books on the how-to healing ministry. People then would flock to the miracle and those preachers interpreted this crowd as the heart of God, then assigned this a doctrine to promote evangelism, and even to justify greed.

The FRS replaced the priesthood of Christ with the imagination about Christ and history of His presence (Jesus in the manger)  became the spoken witness. So then when anyone professes the truth of the history  and says they believe in God is then weighed to the scales of this profession. Why do we need apostles if a person can claim themselves to be a Christian without them?

When the true spiritual priesthood of Christ is removed for their  faith then those unconverted believers step in and can claim biblical authority as resourcing the text, to stand for their faith. This creates confusion of face to where even religious sinners can be honoured for their achievements or grand visions of big ministries and large churches as if God ordained this practice.

Where the true priesthood of Christ is absent in the heart then the spiritual void (defiled conscience) seeks rest by outside entertainments, and the music industry capitalises in this area. Religious passions are enflamed by the words and rhythm about Jesus. We see that even aspirations can take on religious overtones and pass the carnal eye as 'of the Lord'. We use our imagination for our religious authority calling that God.

Religious public opinion became the confirmation as the ratings were used and the finances flowed in and this opinion took the front pages of Christian magazines and media.

When the moral-code replaces faith then logic replaces reason of faith and the soul is left as an open window for the adversary Satan to exploit the ignorance of the person. He will enter again by way of the serpent but the face of the serpent will look and sound different. His voice will be the passions of a friend or relative to distract you from seeing the face of God who awaits your fellowship at the altar of Christ. God’s food of faith will bring equity to the appetites of the soul to keep you from wandering the dry hills of the wilderness and looking into those empty wells. His priesthood is your life line into the eternal inheritance.
Those of the Public Eye Stood up to Bat: Strike Three!

Church institutions of learning and pastors and doctorate thesis were written  and   denominational canonisation followed and every religious practice was viewed as Christ. Sinners in the pulpit called ministers of unrighteousness by the apostles set the pace.

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their IMAGINATIONS, and their foolish heart was darkened.” (Romans 1:21)
 
“Casting down IMAGINATIONS, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
(2 Corinthians 10:5)

Government Stewardship Warned The Church: The FRS Was Blind

They would say, we don't need apostles because we have the bible, and so they would preach this perception until more confirmations would be forthcoming as the selected testimonies would be used to canonise this sermon into a holy doctrine for that denomination. And as the Church Pharaohs ruled in the pulpit throne the pew sitters were brought into their textual bondage and addicted to gather stubble and straw for bricks. We see how the imagination worked in the prosperity gospel.

When the imagination is used in place of faith, then truth is abominated as being cold and lifeless. They would say, your truth is not Jesus because it replaces my passion with the dead letter. Truth to them is a dead letter. Satan rules the passions through this imagination which is like an open window  in the city on a hot day.

Satan enters the soul through the imagination. God cursed the imagination when sinners used this power to justify their sins before God. The imagination is not a sanctified token for faith nor can the conscience be cured by mental therapy or trans-mental meditation.

The priesthood of Christ in the saint prepares the heart for virtue which takes humility of mind to His grace. This cannot be a reality for those of the FRS because the very tokens God sanctified for the transition from darkness to light cannot be possible absent from the oversight of the stewardship, and absent of truth and absent from the Comforter.

Apostle's Today restore the mind of Christ to His Church. Why would they desire to think otherwise?

Standing for the Truth in an Age of Unbelief and Apostasy-Part 3

Why the Church is Confused
Much of today's teaching in the church is very confusing. There are now 38,000 Christian denominations whereas just a few years ago there were only 33,000 Christian denominations. God refers to one Spirit and one truth! There is time to reverse the damage Satan did to your faith.   more...
Paul Planted Apollos Watered- I Planted my Own Garden
Ever since God called upon Adamites to be responsible to His covenant He selected individuals to represent His kingdom. It is simple to understand that even though His choice of servants may possess frailties as Samson, David, Jephthah, Gideon and others in the book of Hebrews 11, yet God has always supervised the direction and substance of faith. It is a marvel to see how the Lord navigates around the standards of the gainsayers and makes the wisdom of man foolish. Satan knows that without stewardship the church has no eyes to see nor understanding of the order of His kingdom.   more...
The New Covenant is the Right Choice

Remembrance: Dead Faith and Careless Revelations
The torment of unbelief causes withdraw from His grace to set a different pattern for the Christian walk. This contrariness will resist the oversight of government in the fear of losing their own free-will of doctrinal choice and practice. When God communicates in dreams and visions to correct or circumcise corrupt traditions these not functioning inside the House of God will use revelations to the point of fables to justify their independent position severed from the true Vine our Lord Jesus Christ. In this state they are not keeping in remembrance those godly admonitions of the stewardship and will fall away not from their traditions but from His sanctification which will blot out their names from the book of Life.   more...
Dirty Faith: An Unclean Religion And Unsanctified Hope
To be crucified with Christ we must first bear His mark of ownership beginning with the seal for our obedience of faith. True sanctification is tethered to the Father and the Son. That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit. Follow the Spirit and live.   more...
Jesus sets the record straight
God established the true tradition faith in His Son Jesus Christ. Christians are taught that it is only through Christ can they have the power to overcome self, Satan, and the world, but void of His knowledge many Christians still walk in bondage to the system of sin. Learn how Jesus set the record straight in the pattern that he set for our overcoming and salvation in Him.   more...

Print Your Name on My Door: Enter My Gate
By a word of knowledge the Lord opens the understanding for us to contribute to His House. As the Passover blood was put on the door, so the charity of our faith is put upon the door for our entrance into the Holy City.
