Our FREE Tickets!
Our FREE tickets, one is issued, however we have the choice to refuse it! The other is a GIFT that we need to accept and receive!
The opening scripture is very direct, please listen carefully:
Mark 7:21-22(AmpCE) – 21For from within, [that is] out of the hearts of men, come base and wicked thoughts, sexual immorality, stealing, murder, adultery, 22Coveting (a greedy desire to have more wealth), dangerous and destructive wickedness, deceit; unrestrained (indecent) conduct; an evil eye (envy), slander (evil speaking, malicious misrepresentation, abusiveness), pride (the sin of an uplifted heart against God and man), foolishness (folly, lack of sense, recklessness, thoughtlessness).
This sounds like our culture today and is a stern reminder to David’s words in Ps. 51 and 53; I will read a couple of verses.
Psalm 51:5 (Amp) – I was brought forth in [a state of] wickedness; In sin my mother conceived me [and from my beginning I, too, was sinful].
Psalms 53:3 (Amp) – Every one of them has turned aside and fallen away; together they have become filthy and corrupt; There is no one who does good, no, not even one.
Please allow me to clarify my statement about the above scriptures, as it’s written in GOD’s Word, before we encounter GOD, JESUS CHRIST or the HOLY Spirit we operate in the flesh, we do things according to the worldly carnal way of life, our carnal desires and flesh rule.
For this reason, I say, one of our free tickets is issued, it’s actually received at birth, by the sin that entered the world through Adam, yes, we are all on a journey to hell because of our “humanity” ticket, we received.
The heading of this section of scripture I am sharing now is “Unbelief and it’s consequences.” I am sharing this with you as I believe the Author of the book of Romans nailed it. It’s quit a long passage so please read with me.
Romans 1:18-32 (Amp) – 18For [God does not overlook sin and] the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth, 19because that which is known about God is evident within them [in their inner consciousness], for God made it evident to them. 20For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defence. 21For even though they knew God [as the Creator], they did not honour Him as God or give thanks [for His wondrous creation]. On the contrary, they became worthless in their thinking [godless, with pointless reasonings, and silly speculations], and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory and majesty and excellence of the immortal God for an image [worthless idols] in the shape of mortal man and birds and four-footed animals and reptiles. 24Therefore, God gave them over in the lusts of their own hearts to [sexual] impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin], 25because [by choice] they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. 26For this reason, God gave them over to degrading and vile passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural [a function contrary to nature], 27and in the same way also the men turned away from the natural function of the woman and were consumed with their desire toward one another, men with men committing shameful acts and in return receiving in their own bodies the inevitable and appropriate penalty for their wrongdoing. 28And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or consider Him worth knowing [as their Creator], God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do things which are improper and repulsive, 29until they were filled (permeated, saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice, and mean-spiritedness. They are gossips [spreading rumours], 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors [of new forms] of evil, disobedient, and disrespectful to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful [without pity]. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree and His judgment, that those who do such things deserve death, yet they not only do them, but they even [enthusiastically] approve and tolerate others who practice them.
Does this not describe the current condition of our world, the current state of society? I know, it’s harsh words and you might feel offended, however it is never the intention of GOD’S Word to offend, but rather to correct and guide.
By reading the above I want us all to do serious introspection to realise where and who we are as people, what standard are we living? Ok enough thinking.
Why do I say But GOD? Well, I am sure that all of you that is watching this has made the correct decision, however, many have made the choice to refuse the free ticket that’s on offer
Please think of what JESUS CHRIST did for all of us on the cross, the sacrifice GOD made by offering HIS SON is so overwhelming and I am eternally greatful for what I have experienced in my life since accepting this free Alternative ticket. I have received so much, just to name a few: Freedom, Blessings, Love, Salvation, Anointing and most of all, Peace that my mind can’t phathom or verbalize.
I get so excited, just reading this scripture:
2 Corinthians 5:17 (Amp) – Therefore, if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Saviour], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].
Hallelujah, thank YOU LORD
Yes, we can all be excited; there is no cost to being renewed. By making the choice to be renewed we are filled with joy as we have accepted JESUS CHRIST as SAVIOR and REDEEMER, we can eternally live a grateful and thankful life in service to GOD ALMIGHTY our KING.
Galatians 2:20(AmpCE) – I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
I want us all to think of this and then of other people, the world out there, friends, family and loved ones, have we shared or are we sharing the GIFT we received? Is there an urgency in your soul to see others come to salvation? Have they made the choice to acknowledge, accept and receive the BLESSING, the Alternative Ticket namely JESUS CHRIST after encountering us?
JESUS speaking, HE said the following:
John 14:20-21 (AmpCE) – 20At that time [when that day comes] you will know [for yourselves] that I am in My Father, and you [are] in Me, and I [am] in you. 21The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]
Are we seeing GOD manifest Himself in our lives and those of other people as we pray for them, do we see GOD working, do we see miracles and healing taking place, living a loving life in JESUS CHRIST through faith will bring GOD to the forefront, confirming HIS presence in our world?
Romans 12:2 (Amp) – And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs] but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].
In the above scripture it is clear that we have a part in this renewing of our minds, let’s take up this responsibility, let’s study GOD through HIS Word and be transformed. I want to urge you, yes, you who are watching me right now, to share the GIFT of Life that we have received through the HOLY SPIRIT, let’s share this GOOD News, let’s share the Life giving ticket JESUS CHRIST, let’s share HIS Unconditional Love!
A reminder to all: there is pleasure, fun and much satisfaction in Giving!
Living this unconditional love in CHRIST JESUS, we will contribute in making this world a better and happier place!
GOD bless, with much love from me and my family, goodbye.
