The Ticket is…. Holiness..

1 Peter 1:15-16
15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of  conversation;
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 

HOLINESS === TOTAL OBEDIENCE TO GOD..

God puts His word  First….

King James Version – KJV Psalms 138:2

2 I will worship toward thy holy temple,
and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy truth:
for THOU HAST MAGNIFIED THY WORD ABOVE ALL THY NAME .

…. Be ye holy; for I am holy…….

GOD IS SAYING DO MY WORD BECAUSE I DO IT TOO

GOD IS CONSTRAINED BY HIS WORD SO HE IS ASKING YOU TO DO THE WORD TOO…
image

But much more often than not, we ignore the word and say it’s not relevant to our time..

We deceive ourselves into thinking that some

things are more important to God than others

forgetting that…..

2 Timothy 3:16

16 All scripture  is given by inspiration of God, and  is profitable for doctrine, for  reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

We analyze the simplicity of the INSTRUCTIONS and

we ignore the CORRECTIONS….

Also…

2 Peter 1
20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

In modern day Christianity,  this scripture is

obsolete….

1 Corinthians 11 :4

4 Every man praying or prophesying, having  his head covered, dishonoureth his  head.  5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with  her head uncovered  dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.  6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a  woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.  7 For a man indeed ought not to cover  his head, forasmuch as he is the image and  glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.  8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.  9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.  10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on  her head because of the  angels. 

We rather justify it with….

15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for  her hair is given her for a  covering. 

We never even asked the Lord prayerfully if        our version was correct or

not, the lust OF THE EYES AND THE PRIDE OF

LIFE made us see it as “old school “….

We would pray and fast for A CAR AND A JOB..

But never to know from God His Holiness

Standard….

This is also obsolete in modern Christianity…

1 Peter 3

3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward  adorning of plaiting the hair, and of  wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;  4 But  let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible,  even  the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.  5 For after this manner in the OLD TIME THE HOLY WOMEN ALSO , who trusted in God,  adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: 

We say the standard of modesty has changed… And

The LUST OF THE EYES, THE LUST OF THE FLESH AND

THE PRIDE OF LIFE would allow us long to look

like the world with our excuse of “Blending in”

And not wanting to scare people away from

Christ……

HOLD UP, WHEN DID YOU BECOME THE HOLY SPIRIT?!!

Daily we water down the standard of God..

We ARE NOT MORE MERCIFUL THAN GOD..

PETER WASN’T WEARING DESIGNER CLOTHING THE DAY HE

CONVERTED 3000.

Go check out Church Evangelical teams of like  50

Designer wearing, tongue speaking, Brethren that

can’t convert 20 people after hours of evangelism….

WE RULED OUT THE HOLY SPIRIT AND RELY ON

The MATERIAL THINGS AND APPEARANCE  TO WIN A SOUL

How then do you explain a brother in a shameful

situation spreading Christianity like wild fire

in Asia? (Paul in Prison)

Hebrews 12:14

14 Follow peace with all  men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the  Lord: 

1 Peter 1. 17

17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to  every man’s work, pass the time of your SOJOURNING here in FEAR :

  THIS BOOK WILL JUDGE US ON THAT DAY…  AND Our  Version or Opinions will not Matter……

NO Holiness NO Heaven
