Obedience is Better Than Sacrifice

There is no doctrine in the Holy Bible that says that the Believer can forsake the Commands of God and live Anyway they want.
The bible is very clear in the epistles……1Pe 1:13 So brace up your minds; be sober (circumspect, morally alert); set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine favor) that is coming to you when Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is revealed.
1Pe 1:14 [Live] as children of obedience [to God]; do not conform yourselves to the evil desires [that governed you] in your former ignorance [when you did not know the requirements of the Gospel].
1Pe 1:15 But as the One Who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living.
1Pe 1:16 For it is written, You shall be holy, for I am holy.
The bible says that Judgment will begin in the House of the Lord…..what do you think that means?
It means…..at the Time of Jesus Appearing, those believers who have not obeyed his Gospel, those who forsook his ordinances and commandments, those who did not surrender to his Lordship in their hearts, those who did not seek to overcome sin in their lives WILL NOT FIND THE GRACE TO BE RAPTURED.
Rev 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
What CROWN is he referring to? The Crown that the Believer will receive upon entering heaven as an OVERCOMER of Sin.
The Apostle Paul speaks of this……2Ti 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
The bible says……. Rev 3:10 Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you], I also will keep you [safe] from the hour of trial (testing) which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth.
Rev 3:11 I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one may rob you and deprive you of your crown.
Rev 3:12 He who overcomes (is victorious), I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of My God; he shall never be put out of it or go out of it, and I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which descends from My God out of heaven, and My own new name.
Rev 3:13 He who can hear, let him listen to and heed what the Spirit says to the assemblies (churches).
The Righteous and Holy Life that Jesus went to the Cross for is in reach of every person who will seek it.
Eph 4:21 Assuming that you have really heard Him and been taught by Him, as [all] Truth is in Jesus [embodied and personified in Him],
Eph 4:22 Strip yourselves of your former nature [put off and discard your old unrenewed self] which characterized your previous manner of life and becomes corrupt through lusts and desires that spring from delusion;
Eph 4:23 And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude],
Eph 4:24 And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness.
Take the time out and really think about where you stand with God, Are you still living like you did before you receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, if you are then you need to repent and surrender your life to the Lordship of Jesus and become his disciple Today.
