The Church Has Sold The Truth

 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

Why would Jesus tell us to buy from Him, Because it will cost you your life.

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls.  When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.
Again Jesus is the treasure, to follow Him it will cost you all you have, His treasure is so great, it is so powerful, I assure you, you want what He has.

Buy the truth and do not sell it—
    wisdom, instruction and insight as well. The church is selling the truth that God gave them, for numbers and offerings. Destruction comes from selling the truth.

“‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ Oil is what comes from giving your life, being fasted up, prayed up, and doing the will of God, without it in these last days your oil will run out and you will fall.

Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction;
    pay attention and gain understanding.  I give you sound learning,
    so do not forsake my teaching. For I too was a son to my father,
    still tender, and cherished by my mother.
Then he taught me, and he said to me,
    “Take hold of my words with all your heart;
    keep my commands, and you will live.
 Get wisdom, get understanding;
    do not forget my words or turn away from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;
    love her, and she will watch over you.
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get[a] wisdom.
    Though it cost all you have,[b] get understanding.
Cherish her, and she will exalt you;
    embrace her, and she will honor you.
She will give you a garland to grace your head
    and present you with a glorious crown.

The fear of the Lord is the begging of Wisdom, understanding comes through a life of reading and obeying God, you do this because you fear the one who can send you to hell, the only one you fear is God. To get what He has, eternal life will cost you all you have, don't hold back from God, His word is plain, it aint free, it will cost you your life.
