Saints and fellow five-fold Ministers, MERCHANDISING the Gospel is Sin. It is INIQUITY.
Some of the verses translate it “trafficking,” “trading,” “merchandising.” Yes, it increases your riches, but the riches when hoarded to your selves causes your hearts to be lifted up it will also cause you to be cast out of the mountain of God as PROFANE.
it DEFILES the SANCTUARY. it is DISOBEDIENCE and the opposite of holiness without which no man shall see the Lord.
It will cause you lose your birth right as well as cause the anointing upon you to lift it in the new testament the FALSE Prophets and teachers made merchandise of the saints of God.
Jesus commanded us to FREELY receive and freely give. The Book of Proverbs tells us to buy the truth and SELL it not IT CAUSES THE WAY OF TRUTH TO BE EVIL SPOKEN OF.
if you disobey the direct commands of Jesus, you do not love the truth and will be given over to strong delusion and your signs and wonders are probably lying signs and wonders. Though may have had genuine ones to start with with and God allowed you to still operate in the anointing because of your ignorance, now you have been warned and it will be direct disobedience to continue doing so.
God does not want any of you to perish and neither do I. The remnant prays for your souls for Godly sorrow to come upon you REPENT! And do it quickly.
It is this and other sins that will cause the latter rain to be with held from you and the reason we have no great awakening and we are not shaking our Cities for God
