"A New Lease on Life"

“A New Lease on Life”


For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.        Hebrews 9:13-14


The blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with ashes of a heifer, were used for ceremonial cleansing of the body, and performed on a regular basis in the times, before the DEATH and RESURRECTION of Christ, but could NEVER reach the HEARTS and MINDS of mankind.   The blood of Jesus Christ, however, was shed ONCE and for ALL, and could CLEANSE the HEARTS and MINDS of ALL who would ACCEPT this NEW LEASE on LIFE, which is ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, by TURNING AWAY FROM their sinful life style and TURNING TO GOD for the SALVATION of their BODY and SOUL.  The BODY and SOUL will be reunited at the RAPTURE of the Saints of God, and will spend ALL of ETERNITY in Heaven. 


What the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of ashes of a heifer on the defiled person COULD NOT DO, the blood of JESUS CHRIST, DID.  And that was to PROVIDE a ONCE for ALL sacrifice for the souls of the defiled people.  But the defiled person must Accept, Believe, Confess, and be willing to serve the Risen Lord, their REDEEMER. 


Once we have gone through this CLEANSING and PURIFICATION of our souls, we should be WILLING to SERVE the LIVING GOD, who provided our SALVATION through the shed blood of the ONCE for ALL SACRIFICE, of His Son, our SAVIOR and Lord, Jesus Christ.  Have you been CLEANSED by the BLOOD of JESUS?  Are you SERVING the LIVING God?  Will you be spending YOUR ETERNITY in HEAVEN or HELL? 


If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you have NOT been CLEANSED by the BLOOD of Jesus, and you are NOT SERVING the LIVING GOD, and you are headed for an ETERNITY in HELL.  However, God in His INFINITE MERCY and AMAZING GRACE is offering you a NEW LEASE on LIFE, by TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO Him, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and His NEW LEASE on LIFE for YOU, with an ETERNITY in HEAVEN.  So do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
