I would like to share with you these Spiritual Sacrifices for Edification:
God preserves the soul through the contact points of His Spirit; that is, His government, His truth, His Spirit, the gifts, the callings, manifold grace of God; prayer, preaching and prophecy.
Through covenant faith we keep the Lord's commandments having the image and likeness of Christ birthed within us.
Through the contact points of the Spirit we touch God; that is, we partake of Christ not in part but in His fullness and thus our faith is perfect before God.
Believers possess the mind of Christ at they go through God's due process of regeneration.
As Christ is perfect so is our faith when His record is the expression thereof.
Our spiritual warfare is on the battlefield of faith with the works of the Covenant wherein we are responsible with our priestly duties for that which is carnal is waged with the works of the flesh; the tools of iniquity.
Those who express faith in God by precept and line of scripture live by the philosophy of grace for to live by the power of grace is to labor in faith with the tools of the covenant for 'God is living and not a dead letter.'
As we keep our vessels full of faith we become stronger in Christ.
Reflecting on Christ brings confidence in the things of Christ whereas reflecting upon our frailty results in doubt wherewith we loose confidence in God.
Those who trust in themselves boast not in the Lord but in the record of their own soul rather than Christ; this is false confidence for the conscience of the righteous is the result of the witness of the Spirit and not the tools of iniquity.
To the calling of the apostle has God given the measure of grace to make known the mystery of Christ.
Believers are enabled to respond to the grace of God in obedience of faith under Apostolic Stewardship for God has given the calling of the apostle the measure of grace to make known the mystery of Christ.
We abide in Christ through diligence of faith wherewith our faith grows exceedingly.
The Lord shall not come as a thief to those who through faith and patience wait upon Him daily.
Having received all things through the apostles office and doctrine believers are equipped to grow unto maturity in Christ for there is no decrease when tethered to God.
Although God set the apostle's calling first; it is to one person; His chosen steward that He gives the "key" (revelation and direction) which true prophets don't add to but confirm.
Those who express faith by precept and line of scripture walk not after the Spirit (Sion) but after the flesh (Zion). For those who walk after the Spirit pick up the tools of the Covenant and work at the altar of Christ.
The tidings of Mount Gershon are true; for it is the mountain of the blessing whereas the tidings of Mount Ebel are false; for it is the mountain of the curse.
The true and false gospel use the same language but take different direction; those who embrace the false gospel despise spiritual government whose end is destruction having no direction for faith whereas those who embrace the true gospel come under the headship of Christ which is observed through the apostles office and doctrine.
Before unconverted Christians can depart from the false religious system; the house of Baal; Babylon, they must be awakened by God's grace to His stewardship and priesthood; the sign and the token.
