Gina Bearfighter shared, "For the cares of this life are bound to the god of this world, but faith is bound to the altar of Christ in the building of the kingdom of God that is to come."
Amen! This bonding is as an umbilical cord sustaining the offspring of the kingdom we are joined too.
This is why false knowledge, even when our desire was to please God, resulted in an increase of that which we didn't want. False knowledge promises to put flesh to death even as iniquity is being nurtured and confidence in early things increases our boast in self. Not at all what we expected. That's why God calls that record a lie and antichrist.
Only the circumcision of the heart, ears, and eyes though faith in Christ brings about death to flesh and then... Because we are separating our faith from darkness by joining faith only to Christ... We experience the old man doing within us as the new man is showing signs of life and growing stronger daily.
We only know Him through this fellowship we have with Him through this process of consecration, working with revelation, and trusting only that which the Spirit is initiating for us to know Him by.... The gifts and tokens of His grace.
