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
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
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….
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
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
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
HOLD UP, WHEN DID YOU BECOME THE HOLY SPIRIT?!!
Daily we water down the standard of God..
We ARE NOT MORE MERCIFUL THAN GOD..

Go check out Church Evangelical teams of like 50

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)
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
