SUCH A DEAL : HAVE YOU SOLD YOUR BLESSING FOR A MEASLY BOWL OF SOUP

SUCH A DEAL

Gen 25:30-33
30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.

31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.

32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?

33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
KJV


Such a deal made Jacob with Esau. The topic of many a sermon. How harshly the Body of Christ has dealt with this man Esau. The very THOUGHT of selling his birthright for a measly BOWL OF SOUP! How sorrowful this exchange; and Jacob------so willing to accommodate. How can it be? Doesn’t this really show the shallowness of the Old Testament faith? Aren’t you glad that you were born AFTER the Cross? Aren’t we in a better position today; to be blessed by the presence of the Holy Spirit, who is ABLE to steer us from such shallowness-----------------OH REALLY?

Have you considered your own SHALLOWNESS? Have you considered what YOU have sacrificed for a bowl of soup? WHO ME? You talk,n to ME?--------Yes I’m talking to YOU. Haven’t you sold your BIRTHRIGHT to Satan. Haven’t you yielded your most precious gift to BRICK and MORTER? Have you never heard that YOU ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD? Have you not read I Corinthians 6:19 ?



1 Cor 6:19-7:1
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

KJV


Why are you so harsh with poor ole Esau? After all; he did not have the Holy Spirit as we today. He never benefited from that blessed experience of being BORN AGAIN. His spirit did not BARE WITNESS with the Spirit of God as ours---------and yet, we have this deep, and persistent heresy that lulls us to a comfortable acceptance. It is a heresy that began very early in Christian history. It is this BOWL OF SOUP which has seduced us, comforted us, and caused us to subtlety and with willingness---------give away our VERY IDENTITY.

Jesus stood on the mount of Olives just hours before his crucifixion, and said these words------


Matt 24:2
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
KJV


FROM THAT DAY FORWARD------there was never again the possibility that God would dwell in a building MADE OF HUMAN HANDS! God was THROUGH with such miserable failure. Now he would personally engineer a TEMPLE for himself--------not touched by HUMAN HANDS! Now his law would CEASE to be pressed into parchment, but rather, would be burned into the HOLY OF HOLIES of his own making. Now his TEMPLE would become MAN HIMSELF---------Christ the FOUNDATION--------and THE APOSTLES, the MASTER BUILDERS----------


Eph 2:20-22
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
KJV


WHY HAVE YOU DONE THIS THING?

Has God done some evil unto you. Are you DISCONTENT with your exceeding HIGH CALLING? Is it SHAMEFUL TO YOU to be called THE TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD? Is the BRICK and MORTOR laid by SINFUL MAN become more precious to you ? Perhaps you feel unworthy of such an endowment. HOW SAD YOU ARE! Listen to these words again---------



;Eph 2:21-22
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
KJV


AN HOLY TEMPLE

AN HOLY TEMPLE

AN HOLY TEMPLE

HABITATION OF GOD

HABITATION OF GOD

HABITATION OF GOD


Is God concerned with the PLUMBLINE, and the CORNERSTONE of a MAN MADE BUILDING? Will it NOT BURN?---------------WHY IS IT SO HEAVILY INSURED if it is eternal ?
Why are God’s people FEEDING this monstrosity that has NO THOUGHT----------OR FEELING----------OR PASSION OF ANY KIND ? Why are children COLD, and STARVING, while this TEMPLE FROM HELL devours the “TITHE”? Where is your shame.-------------

1 Tim 3:15
15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, WHICH IS THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, the pillar and ground of the truth.
KJV


Heb 10:29
29 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 SPITE UNTO THE SPIRIT OF GRACE?
KJV



WHY HAVE YOU RETURNED TO THAT WHICH GOD HAS DESTROYED?



Heb 6:4-6
4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
KJV


What is better-------to worship IN THE TEMPLE ?----------------------or to actually BE THE TEMPLE ?



WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO THE CHILDREN?

“Hey there young man---------take off your hat-------don’t you know you are in "GOD’S HOUSE”. Are you even aware that you have introduced a terrible HERESY into the life of a LITTLE CHILD ?---------


Matt 19:14
14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
KJV


From their childhood you have taught LITTLE CHILDREN to honor BRICK and MORTOR above that which the Lord has done in their tender hearts. What blasphemy! What judgment shall come to those who hold the TRADITIONS OF MEN in higher esteem than the teachings of the Apostles of Jesus.




LET ME SAY THIS SO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND-----



THE BODY OF CHRIST IS “GOD’S HOUSE” !

THE BODY OF CHRIST IS THE “TEMPLE OF GOD” !

ANYTHING ELSE IS CHURCH HERESY !


WELCOME TO GOD’S HOUSE


The next time some preacher welcomes you into “God’s House”-----------GET UP AND LEAVE ! This man obviously does not know who he is talking to, nor does he recognize his own HIGH CALLING. His invitation is deeply heretical, and is an instrument of Satan!


GETTING READY FOR CHURCH

I recall as a young man---------GETTING READY FOR CHURCH. This usually entailed a bath, clean clothes, and some kind of greasy, oily stuff that my mother spread through my hair in order to paste it to my scalp. Then we would “GO TO CHURCH”, where all the other kids also had their hair pasted to their scalps. The folks looked so clean and nifty. The men all wore neckties, and long sleeved, white shirts. The women all had very long hair rolled into a tight little bun. Their dresses were stiffly pressed, and starched, and hung below the knee--------NO JEWELRY!-----NO MAKE-UP which SOME direly needed.

In NEW TESTAMENT TERMS---------THIS WAS ALL A FARCE! The Temple of God CANNOT BE ADORNED FROM THE OUTSIDE! The HOLY OF HOLIES lies WITHIN! The TRUE TEMPLE can only be adorned from the HOLY OF HOLIES----------OUTWARD, and becomes more, and more MODEST as it reaches the surface.


We are DANCING FOR SATAN

God is NOT IMPRESSED with your attire; whether adorned in the “HOLINESS” fashion, or blue-jeans, T-shirt, and sandals. We are DANCING FOR THE DEVIL when we spend valuable TIME trying to please God by adorning the flesh-------only to enter into SATAN’S DEN----------to SACRAFICE OUR HIGH CALLING-----on an alter most willing to receive.


LET’S GO HOME


It is time to RETURN TO THE NEW TESTAMENT. It is time to hold the WORD OF GOD in higher esteem than Church Tradition. It is time to REJECT-----------ALL THAT IS UNBIBLICAL!--------------- It is TIME TO ENTRENCH!


GIFTS FROM HELL
Many heresies have come to us over the centuries. Only the New Testament can wash us from these GIFTS OF SATAN. They are the GIFTS THAT KEEP ON GIVING-----------century unto millennia. Why is it so hard to root out these long held diseases of the spirit? Why is it so easy to give up one’s birthright in Christ? Semantics you say?--------Jesus said “THE LITTLE FOXES SPOIL THE VINE”. It’s time to EXAMINE EVERY BELIEF---------EVERY DOCTRINE---------EVERY SILLY PRACTICE---------EVEN THE LORD’S TABLE----------and ROOT OUT that which is abominable.



BOTTOM LINE

I have found the truth of the New Testament to be lovelier than anything ever created by the hands of man. No temple is more beautiful than the TEMPLE OF GOD [which TEMPLE YE ARE]. Don’t trade your blessing for a MEASLY BOWL OF SOUP.
