Dirty Faith: An Unclean Religion And Unsanctified Hope

 Is Your Faith Dirty | An Unclean Religion
Why God Makes Distinctions
 
Since the beginning, God established a pattern in our thinking that the Lord indeed makes distinctions for His ownership. Though all the nations bear the marks of Adam, yet only those that bear the mark of Christ are His firstborn as the apostle Paul said, “From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the MARKS of the Lord Jesus.” (Galatians 6:17)
 
Abraham was separated from his father’s house of idols to begin another new house of faith.
This separation shows his love for God was greater than the blood of relatives. Jesus also teaches His small group of followers saying:
 
“He that loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” (Matthew 10:37)
 
And again setting priorities He said, “He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.”(John 12:25)
 
The knowledge of this world is sin. Its origin comes from the roots of iniquity being found in the foundation of Satan’s heart, the father of lies, (The record of all falsehoods).
 
 When Your Faith Is Unclean
 
Jesus also identifies His own sanctification as being of the Father and separate of Adam as those of no faith.  By the tether of His faith He kept His sanctification pure for the building of His Father’s House.
 
“And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be SANCTIFIED through the truth.” (John 17:19)
 
This separation was by a new knowledge and a new stewardship which is empowered by the Holy Ghost. The form of dead knowledge which works with the imagination and confirms the aspirations of man is unclean for faith. The whole world at the time of Jesus was emerged in the waters of sin. Every imagination of the heart was overflowing with Satan’s record. The Spirit of God has no confirmation with the spirit of this world as Jesus affirmed to His apostles saying:
 
“Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.” (John 14:30)
 
This verse shows that Jesus’ sanctification for faith was indeed pure for us to be saved from the knowledge of Sin.  For the knowledge of sin is death! Jesus had established the pattern for our faith in His flesh which Satan will try to redirect into the law.
 
But He kept His separation by the tethering of the Spirit for our faith which the world cannot see nor understand, because His word to us replaces the letter of the law for us so that we would obey Him.
 
Unclean Faith is Born of the Waters of This Kingdom
 
Unclean faith is born out of the waters of this kingdom on earth or the signature of the soul. God set our sanctification in Christ for the conscience to be pure to mirror Him. So God selected a people out of the world that would bear His likeness in the conscience, and Jesus being our prototype teaches this separation by being born of a virgin.
 
“If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (John 15:19)
 
Satan shows hostility towards those God separates because they leave off the image of death to take on the yoke of faith, which crucifies the aspirations of the imagination which is moulded by the spirit and knowledge of this world being antichrist.   
 
Abraham: A Pattern Must Be Set For Discernment Of Love
 
Lot was sanctified by association with Abraham as the apostles were sanctified by Jesus Christ. Those at are joined to him also partake of the benefits as Lot was delivered from the wrath of God.
  
“Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me.” (Genesis 13:9)
 
Lot believed the revelations of Abraham and endured the oppressions of Egypt with Abraham and received the reward of his overcoming. Jesus said:
 
“Ye are they which have continued with me in my TEMPTATIONS.” (Luke 22:28)
 
Your love of obedience under My stewardship was more than your love of the world and because of this you also shall share in the rewards.
 
Jesus spoke of the faith of Abraham for our benefit of understanding the importance of sanctification by association with the stewardship for the stewardship carries the key of opening and closing. This key is necessary for making the separation between the religious aspirations and the man of faith.
  
The Season God Assigned to Moses
 
Through Moses, God opened another new week. This new season was the time of the law which God issued to Moses for the sanctification of the people and the perfection of their faith.
 
But Moses warned the people that there will be another new season following his. This season will be the time of David as the tabernacle of skin would be put into a new frame of a temple of stones. For the angel that carries His name sanctifies the tokens God gives for faith.
 
God separates for us time, days, people and events to sieve and refine His people. As Jesus used the example of Wheat to Tares and Sheep to Goats to teach us this example of the clean and unclean vessels.
  
 From the people of Israel God separated the Levites and from the Levites it was Kohath and from Kohath, Moses.
 
“Thus shalt thou SEPARATE the Levites from among the children of Israel: and the Levites shall be mine.” (Numbers 8:14)
 
“And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;” (Leviticus 10:10)
 
Each separation being justified for the assigned activity by the revelation of the angel that sanctified them. By this tethering they possessed living faith. Faith that was not joined to the knowledge of this world. Faith that manifested an activity to express your love to God. By these commandments we are saved.
 
Is Your Believing Complete?
 
Can a person believe in God apart from keeping His commandments. Yes! But their believing is not completed outside of the sanctified activity that God sealed for your perfection.
 
For the conscience will remain unpurged and your charity will not be accepted if it is touching that unsanctified altar and not touching Jesus Christ.
 
“Even so faith, if it hath not works, is DEAD, being alone.” (James 2:17)
 
Only the Works That God Has Separated For Faith in Called Good
 
Only the works that God has separated for faith is called ‘good’. But works that bear the image of man and promote religious riot and lawlessness towards stewardship is dead.
 
“But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is DEAD?” (James 2:20)

To be born of the Spirit requires an adoption of faith for God to wash and sanctify the soul for habitation of His House. Those that carry His likeness learn new habits being taught to function at the altar of the Lord. The robes of our righteousness is the Light of Christ. Unless you are clothed with His robes you will not have access to His House. The adoption for His eternal inheritance begins with your sanctification.
When the conscience is unsanctified it struggles for purity by the law of the moral-code and fights faith in God (is hostile to His righteousness) refuses to reciprocate His grace. The flesh demands equality to faith and desires God to confirm their works with His peace and rest. But the Spirit of Truth only works with the record of Jesus Christ. (John 14:26; 15;26)
 
26 For as the body without the spirit is DEAD, so faith without works is DEAD also.
 
The house of Baal is absent of His sanctification as the body without the spirit is dead, being unresponsive to His grace. But alive to the imagination as the works of Genun drew the attention of the children of Seth by worldly activity regardless of the protesting of the elders to remain on the mountain. (1 Peter 3:20)
 
But by the preaching of Methuselah many hearts were turned back to God. They accepted the gospel and stewardship of Methuselah to be saved though they were forbidden to return to the mountain.
 
So today, in this new season of the church as the tribulation draws near called the second consummation, many hearts are being manifest by the challenges God has determined to test the hearts. Again the key of stewardship has taken a direction which those unconverted believers will protest against and mock. (2 Peter 2:10; Jude 1:8)
 
Esau: Unsanctified Hope
 
Though Esau was the son of Isaac the son of the promise, yet he was only sanctified by association with his father. But once Esau separated himself from his father’s house he was consumed with the course of the world and fought his brother.
 
“For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.” (1 Corinthians7:14)
 
Today the church of Esau (Baal) in departing from the sanctified stewardship will resist the knowledge and the direction of the Spirit. Jacob then became the next steward of the House of Abraham. God confirming these things in dreams and visions to him. In time Jacob will have to take his house in the direction Isaac protested. Back to Egypt.
 
“For both he that SANCTIFIES and they who are SANCTIFIED are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren.” (Hebrews 2:11)
 
 Low Value Anointing = Torment
 
When the moral-code is joined to the knowledge of God it takes on its own character. Instead of the fruit of the Spirit this power (seducing spirit) imitates a virtue of its own. It defines charity in the light of unsanctified good works which the world can associate with by struggling with behavioural modifications to match that of scripture. What it reads its imitates, and creates a false piety.
 
When grace and truth is present this spirit feels uncomfortable and tormented. But to combat the grace of God from entering to challenge the state of the conscience, this person as Esau seeks resolve by similarities called today apologetics. Instead of confirming the covenant it will marry the daughter of Ishmael. A sleek compromise for approval to settle the conflict with his parents but no faith. (Genesis 27:46; 28:9)
 
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath TORMENT. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” (1John4:18)
 
“And he TREMBLING and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.” (Acts 9:6)
 
Because the unconverted believer is lacking the foundation of truth, though they feel their personal bible study qualifies them to have it, they will extrapolate discernment from their own personal library of theology, much like running into the idols temple to validate the senses.
 
This anointing is false to God because it is not empowered by His grace but stimulated in the senses of their logic by a seducing spirit (antichrist) to re-set the thinking but withhold the will from grace.
As Satan, they can change their thinking to solace the agitation of the conscience but in the presence of truth this power will manifest again to resist. (John 8:9; 40-46)

“But the ANOINTING which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same ANOINTING teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” (1John 2:27)
 
Jesus Christ the anointed One said, Satan has no place in Me. The record of Satan speaks of himself, or independent of the Godhead. Being unsanctified and ruin in faith will set your feet upon the same path of destruction by his influence through false knowledge. Satan has created a rival and unholy religion to imitate Christ on the level of sedition.
 
 “This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, SENSUAL, devilish.” (James 3:15)
 
This spirit promises a hope that is not real to faith. It works well with the imagination but is offended at truth.
 
Dead Religion
 
Only that which God sanctifies for faith is good works. God sanctified His Son for us to represent His conscience. We see this sign in the pure river of Life which proceeds from His throne. Unless we drink of Him, we will not experience His fullness of peace and rest.

“And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be SANCTIFIED through the truth.” (John17:19)
 
 Zombies In the Pew: The Peep and Mutter “P”
 
When preachers separate the knowledge from the Spirit of grace they also replace faith with the works of the moral-code. People must feel they are sharing in something that will benefit them to barter with God
 
 While the imagination promises them a future substance which they are not presently experiencing, they will moderate their priority to accompany the hope. This feeling is what they call God, which is not God.
 
“And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that PEEP, and that MUTTER: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?”
 (Isaiah 8:19)
 
Under this influence they are spiritually dead and immobilized to faith. For when the will is weak the imagination is strong, but where the grace of God is strong the imagination dies with the aspirations and the principle. In this state you are crucified with Christ.

“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are SANCTIFIED.” (Acts 20:32)

“For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for SALVATION unto the ends of the earth.” (Acts 13:47)
 
The apostolic stewardship is not claiming to be saviours replacing Jesus Christ but that His sanctification in them makes them worthy of fellowship for your sanctification. Through the calling which God placed on them they scrub the soul of dirty faith making the hope clear and giving the church the true religion.

“By the which will we are SANCTIFIED through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”
 
Without this knowledge for faith our sanctification remains only a goal for the imagination
 “For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are SANCTIFIED.”
 
Jesus provided Himself as our covenant by which terms we keep by the Spirit which raised Him from the dead. God separates us from the world to Himself calling us His firstborn.
 
“Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was SANCTIFIED, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?” (Hebrews 10:10,14,29)
 
False religion will rival the stewardship for credibility according to their own standards of control.
 
“Do we begin again to COMMEND ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?” (2 Corinthians 3:10)
 
A person is then not saved unless they follow His sanctification for salvation which includes the stewardship, the truth ,and the functioning priesthood for separation to be complete and your joy to be full.

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...

When The Imagination Becomes Your Priesthood
Beware of the snares of the imagination Satan uses to feed the soul folly to fight the plan of God today. When religious people use the scales of the flesh to measure truth, the feelings about truth will always shift into the gears of their own logic. Such a perception will stand opposed to the kingdom of God and the spirit of the Pharisee will emerge again to smite Christ and mock His plan. The imagination muses in wonder and will perish in the application as the fowls of the air will devour the Word they hear but not assess as the true peril of great price.   more...
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...
