I PAID FOR YOU, BUT HOW MUCH OF YOU, DO I REALLY OWN? The salvation of your soul cost Me my life. I paid for your sin and covered it with my blood. You have been bought with a big price.
However this purchase is and always has been conditional, because you, the living product must fully agree, to be fully purchased. Your sin has been paid for in full and total forgiveness granted. Each person has a certain number of days to make good on My purchase, by fully agreeing to it, and thereby receiving the forgiveness. I alone know the number of days you have, to make this decision.
Many have agreed to a partial purchase, which is not valid in the kingdom. The kingdom contract is an all or nothing deal. Many desire to be partially purchased, agreeing to their soul being bought, to avoid hell in the next life, but not their heart, to serve Me in this life.
This attempt at a duel lifestyle produces luke warmness and causes spiritual schizophrenia. Soon, with the mind, will and emotion, they try to mimic those who allowed their heart to be purchased.
They study all the actions of the sold out one, until they are able to act like a Christian. These actions are all exterior and seldom hold up under pressure. They become one person in a church building, another at the work place, still another socially, yet another at home and a very different person when no one is watching them.
I will hold accountable the shepherds who feared rejection, and presented a cross-less gospel, holding the truth in unrighteousness. The purchase agreement must be made very clear at the offset, no fine print, or explaining later. Many shepherds have filled their buildings and lined their pockets preaching this gospel.
Except for My disciples, whom I hand picked, I tried to discourage anyone who wanted to follow me, by laying out the total cost, in detail. For Me to purchase you, it cost everything and for you to be bought, it will cost you everything.
My grace has made a way of escape, it's a way where there was no way, but it's only a way for those who will walk away from their sin and iniquity, and accept My full purchase of their heart and soul.
Examine yourself :
If I ask you to excuse yourself from a long awaited party, to wait on me, will you instantly do it, joyfully? If not, I do not own your heart yet!
If I ask you to break off a relationship, will you break it immediately, if not, your heart is not mine yet.
Ponder these things in your heart and see if My purchase of you is complete. If not, your luke warm and suffering spiritual schizophrenia. Repentance, will bring all the blessings of a total purchased redemption, along with the expected peace and joy that was missing in your partial purchase. Do it now, for only I know your time.
1 Corinthians 7:23 (AMP)
You were bought with a price purchased with a preciousness and paid for by Christ; then do not yield yourselves up to become in your own estimation slaves to men but consider yourselves slaves to Christ.

Ezekiel 34:2-3,7-10 (AMP)
Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them, even to the spiritual shepherds, Thus says the Lord God: Woe to the spiritual shepherds of Israel who feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the sheep?  You eat the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you kill the fatlings, but you do not feed the sheep.  Therefore, you spiritual shepherds, hear the word of the Lord:  As I live, says the Lord God, surely because My sheep became a prey, and My sheep became food for every beast of the field because there was no shepherd--neither did My shepherds search for My sheep, but the shepherds fed themselves and fed not My sheep--  Therefore, O you spiritual shepherds, hear the word of the Lord:  Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require My sheep at their hand and cause them to cease feeding the sheep, neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more. I will rescue My sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them.
