Long before man’s monetary system was introduced on earth, God’s economy for man was hinged on a prescription of Faith that would strictly be fueled by words/commandments (Gen. 2:16-17/Jn. 14:31/15:10). Long before Father Abraham slew Isaac, God had slain His Lamb before the foundation of this world (Rev. 13:8) not only to take away our sins but more importantly, to teach us how to bring fullness of pleasings to the father (Matt. 3:17/Mk 9:7) through His Precious Faith (2Pet. 1:1).
Through the perimeter of Christ’s graceful faith walk, He authored and finished the original edition of faith that God ordained for man, which had been hid in God from the foundations of this world (Eph. 3:9). He offered mankind a divine provision through (1Pet. 1:5) which he would journey until he inherits or partakes of God in the days of his flesh, and the only accurate response to this is for you and I to get accustomed to this faith like we were once with sin.
1Pet. 2:4 God who will have all men to be saved, and to COME (through The Faith Christ authored– 1Pet. 1:5) unto the KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH (the Father).
Heb 11:6 … for he that COMES to God must believe …
(i.e. the primary ordination of faith is to journey back to God)
So God began the project of restoring the faith of the living soul (Adamic faith) back on earth through Father Abraham and He used his life to explain how He has to lead a man contrary to earthly arrangements/timings so as to empty man of His vain Love, and thereby cause such to obtain the promise. For father Abraham, the bait was a land, an inheritance that typified Christ.
Father Abraham’s obedience gave God the legal ground to begin a genealogy that would end each subscriber in the Spirit, i.e. make souls purely spiritual (Matt. 22:32/Heb. 11:16/12:9), and the enterprise through which Jesus authored His peculiar kind of faith for a peculiar people was a costly one! IT COST GOD AN INTERIM “INTERUPTION” OF HIS ETERNAL FELLOWSHIP WITH THE WORD. FOR OVER 2000 YEARS, IT HAS COST HIS SPIRIT A COSTLY ADVENTURE TO A SIN-INFESTED EARTH, AND THE ONLY WAY WE CAN TRULY APPRECIATE THEM IS BY LEARNING TO SUBMIT TO THE FAITH SYLABUS OF THE SON WHICH GUARANTEES THAT WE WOULD END IN THE FATHER (Jn. 13:3b/14:3/14:23/17:21).
Though faith towards God gave birth to healing/financial prosperity movements etc, God’s enemies (rebel holders) have a height advantage over the judgements of this faith and many believers have remained carnal despite it, but what these fallen Spirits dread the most is that believers subscribe to the faith of the son, because thereby would we adventure into what would bring about the prosperity of the soul ( 1Jn 3:2). This is where fellowship with God’s secrets begins and continues over decades until we grow/come into the stature of grace and truth (God’s Love). This is where overcoming believers would dethrone Christ’s enemies from the realm that Adam and other disobedient sons mortgaged to the devil; the realm called THE AIR (Eph. 2:2/ Isa. 14:12/Rev. 12:9)
THIS IS THE REALM THAT MANY MATURED CHILDREN OF THE KINGDOM (SONS) MUST OCCUPY (Lk 19:13/ROM. 16:20). THE DIVIDEND OF SUCH CORPORATE OBEDIENCE TO CHRIST’S FAITH (ROM. 16:26) WOULD SUMMON THE LORD’S MANY GLORIOUS APPEARANCES/COMINGS (HEB. 9:28/Tit. 2:13/1Pet. 1:13), WHICH MUST TAKE PLACE LONG BEFORE THE RAPTURE (THE MEETING IN THE AIR – 1Thes. 4:17)
1Pet. 1:13 … hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ
(this is an ongoing faith-unveiling teaching process, which must produce priestly sons long before the event called “rapture”)
Lk. 18:8 Nevertheless when the Son of man comes, shall he find (His edition of) faith on the earth?
(this is currently ongoing, though sparingly, and so GOD AWAITS MANY MORE SUBSCRIBERS because JESUS HAS PROMISED (HIM) TO BRING MANY SONS TO GLORY)
