I realize that one of the major challenges before The Church of Christ is to HALT EVERY OTHER RAT RACE INDUCED BY THE WORLD through the preaching of a True/Balanced Gospel. Then would we see the distinction between unbelievers/carnal believers (who primarily ‘seek things present’) and Christians (called to ‘seek things above’)
Heb. 11:8 ‘By Faith (i.e. Beginning of His Walk/Faith) Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance (i.e. End of His Walk/Faith), obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went’.
We can see that the Faith that the apostles came into was neither the initial kind of ‘Faith Towards God’ which was described as ‘Faith in The Lord Jesus’ to churches in Ephesus and Colosse (Eph. 1:15/Col. 1:4), but rather, Christ’s Own Kind Of Faith that would make a believer beat every scheme of the enemy hands down
2 Cor. 6:17-18 ‘Wherefore come out from among them and be ye separate saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you and will be a Father unto you and ye shall be my sons and daughters saith the Lord Almighty.
(This is a promise that would be delivered by the revelational Face Ministry of Christ and not the Ministry of His Hands where we can get miracles)
You may therefore agree with me that the Faith Father Abraham used to lay down Isaac on Mount Moriah was Faith according to Knowledge and not the initial Faith according to Believing which we he used to believe God for a child and to increase in silver and Gold! It was a type of God’s Faith at work in Him that made him Know Isaac would be raised from the dead by resurrection power!
Such faith so pleased God that he began a lineage in the Spirit through him, of those who would come into their spiritual inheritance, making you and I become Abraham’s seed meant to grow into ‘Trees of Righteousness’ and this can only take place when we change meals from The Milk to The Meat of God’s Word, from one kind of faith to another!
Like Joshua and Caleb, we must with a ‘different spirit/finishing faith’ press into our promised land which in the New Testament is a Spiritual/Eternal Inheritance in heavenly Places in Christ Jesus! Eph. 1:3
