JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT THE “BOOTH!”

… because by a single offering He has made perfect for all time those who are sanctified.  Hebrews 10:14 Berean Study Bible

Have you ever gone to a car dealer to purchase a car?  The salesmen comes out and then you look at the car and decide which one, and then he takes you to the booth.  It could be a cubicle, or another area but for all practical purpose its a waiting area until all the paperwork and mainly the financial portion of the transaction is all clear.  Most people are buying cars or trucks on credit so they have to get a credit check to see if they qualify

If they qualify and everything checks out, they can go home with the vehicle and can keep the car as long as they make all their payments.  Miss a few payments and a certain truck pulls up to one’s residence to reclaim what was theirs the whole time. Why was it really their’s the whole time.  Because the car was not fully paid for.  Some people are fine as they wait in the booth but others are sweating hoping their credit is good enough and that this blemish or that blemish does not shut down the whole deal.  I remember one time getting a vehicle and I had it for a week and they called me back and said you need to put down more money. Thank God that Salvation and Righteousness are not like that.  JESUS PAID IT ALL and He will never repossesses YOUR salvation because He gave it to you not based on what you did or could pay, but based on what He did!!!

Why am I bringing this up?  Because I continue to hear good and well meaning preachers in most cases,  knowingly or unknowingly dupe believers and unbelievers alike into thinking and believing that they have to qualify for the blessings and benefits of the Kingdom when Jesus already paid in full for you to HAVE EVERYTHING.

What I am leaving with you is shalom — I am giving you my shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. Don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened.  John 14;27 Complete Jewish Bible.

Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. THAT’S EVERYTHING.  Jesus just said He is leaving with you shalom. He then made it even clearer and said, “I am giving you My Shalom.”  Now look at what He says next.  “I don’t give the way the world gives.”  And finally He says as a result of that “Don’t let yourself be upset or frightened.”    When a man or woman of God tell you that you have to qualify for the blessings of God they are “putting you in the booth.”  They are telling you to look at yourself and see if you have any sin in your life because if you do your spiritual credit is not good enough to receive what Jesus bought and paid and GAVE YOU ALREADY.  I don’t care who the preacher is,  how anointed he  or she is suppose to be and how long they have been in ministry THIS IS WRONG and completely against scripture.  Check out Romans 8:32.

New Living Translation
Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?

English Standard Version
He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

Berean Study Bible
He who did not spare His own Son but gave up Him for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things?

Berean Literal Bible
For He who spared not the own Son, but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, with Him, grant us all things?

New American Standard Bible
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

King James Bible
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

I see the word freely. I see the word graciously.  I see the word grant. You don’t pay back a grant you pay back a loan.  Poppa did not give us Jesus on a loan if we do good.  Jesus does not bless us based on our works or actions.  He blesses us based on His finished perfect work.

… because by a single offering He has made perfect for all time those who are sanctified. Hebrews 10:14 Berean Study Bible

You have a decision to make.  Are you going to let some preacher or person who is ignorant of how righteousness works and GRACE (God’s undeserved unmerited favor which reigns thru righteousness) put you back in the booth to qualify? Or are you going to take God’s Word that its paid for and go home with your salvation and blessings fully paid for?

We will pick this up tomorrow.  All the blessed to you!!! Shalom!
