MORNINGTIME 2484
 
In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.....  I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite. Luke 12:1, (All the way through to), 59. The whole chapter. As you read all the way through this chapter, look at it through the eyes of a lawyer. Christ is Preaching and Teaching all about man's relationship to man, with relevant parables, FROM A LEGAL PERSPECTIVE. The theme of this whole chapter is, treat your fellow man decently and with respect, because if you don't, and you get hauled into court, if you're found guilty as charged, the Judge may throw the book at you and you'll not get out until you've paid the last penny. The implication is, when you're in jail for your crimes, you'll be there forever with no way to pay, UNLESS AND UNTIL SOMEONE COMES TO PAY FOR YOUR CRIMES WITH THEIR OWN LIFE, BECAUSE YOU'RE ON DEATH ROW. And here's the GOoD News of all this, Jesus, The Christ has ALREADY Paid In Full for ALL your crimes against Him. THE ONE YOU HAVE OFFENDED IS THE ONE WHO HAS COME TO SET YOU FREE. Your jail cell door is unlocked and open, and all you have to do is acknowledge Christ THE REDEEMER, and walk out of jail, A FREE MAN. As you turn to say "Thank You", you'll see Him stepping into your cell in your place, and dying the death you were going to die. Then you'll see Him being buried, in your place, AND RISING FROM THE DEAD, TO SHOW YOU THAT THERE IS LIFE AFTER DEATH BECAUSE DEATH HAS NO HOLD ON HIM. His  Payment even covers your Eternity. If you'll not accept this Eternal  Redemption Offer, you'll die in prison, " I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, (from prison), till thou hast paid the very last mite". Luke 12:59. The choice should be easy, Follow Christ, and, BE BLESSED.
