MORNINGTIME 3818 

When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, IT IS FINISHED: and He bowed His head, and gave up the Ghost. John 19:30. ALL RELIGIONS, FAITHS AND DENOMINATIONS REQUIRE YOU TO DO THINGS, if you're going to be accepted by their god. If you don't, you may very well not be granted entrance into heaven, or into the harem of waiting virgins, or into purgatory to try to pray your way out. Some require that you wear special magical underwater, some require chanting the same stuff over and over again. Playing with beads sometimes helps. Having to go door to door all day long to make your quota might help. MAN PUTS MANY REQUIREMENTS IN YOUR WAY TO WORK YOUR WAY THROUGH, OR ELSE YOU DON'T GET IN. These "teachings" are ALL straight from the pit of Hell. Doing these things brings no satisfaction, no joy, no peace, and no assurance of anything but questions, doubts and hopelessness. CHRIST HAS DONE IT ALL, IT IS FINISHED, AND YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING TO HELP. For you to try to even do just one thing is like you picking up a laser powered scalpel and trying to help the world's best brain surgeon work on someone. Your efforts to "help" will actually do damage to the intended outcome. Satan himself will custom tailor just enough religious "stuff" for you to do so that you can "feel contented" that you're actually doing SOMETHING to help you get to your great reward. Christ says, "Come to Me just as you are, in your sins and filth, AND I WILL CLEAN YOU UP AND MAKE YOU PRESENTABLE TO THE FATHER ON HIS TERMS. I KNOW WHAT HE REQUIRES AND I WILL MAKE YOU HOLY, RIGHTEOUS AND PURE BY MY BLOOD COVERED WORK ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY". Just Rest in Christ, period. The thief on the cross next to Christ could do NOTHING to earn his way into Heaven. He Believed Christ and His Words and died Heaven Bound. The Holy Spirit will direct your steps away from worldliness and into CHRISTLIKENESS, and that does take Obedience TO HIM, as He changes you from Glory to Glory, and you WILL, Be Blessed.
