Your salvation is your responsibility



Each and every one of us
must work out our own salvation. Our salvation depends on our
relationship with Jesus Christ. Our salvation does not depend on what
we believe or just whom we believe in, but if we believe that Jesus
Christ is Lord and that He is the final authority, that He will
decide who will go into heaven and who will go into hell then, we
have to take Him seriously.
We have to obey Him and we
have to make sure that He is pleased with us. Many people think that
they only need to believe in Jesus for salvation, but if we do not
know Him, follow Him and obey Him then we will not enter His kingdom.
Nobody else can work on your relationship with Jesus for you. You
need to work on your own relationship with Jesus and make sure that
He is pleased with you. Jesus said that if we obey His words, His
commands, if we repent and are baptized in water, and live according
to His teachings then He will reveal Himself to us. He will give his
Holy Spirit in us to teach and guide us. He will come and dwell in us
and He will be with us until the very end, but we have to stay with
Him. We have to go after Him. If we leave Him then we will go stray.
He will not hold us back, but we have to go after Him and seek His
approval. We must make sure that we are pleasing to Jesus.
We have to work out our
own salvation with fear and trembling. We have to make sure that our
relationship with Jesus is right, every day until the very end. Many
believe they are saved but they do not know Jesus, they do not obey
Him, they have not received His Holy Spirit, they do not know His
voice and they do not follow Him. Many of them are preachers,
believers, people who know the Bible well, religious people, but
they do not know Jesus and they do not follow Him. They are
practicing religion and when they die they will stand before Jesus
and He will say to them:"Go away, I never knew you, you workers
of wickedness."
The only way that we can
be pleasing to Jesus is if we follow Him, if we hear His voice and
listen to him and if we receive confirmation from Him that he is
pleased with us. Work out your own relationship with Jesus. Do not
trust anybody else, because nobody else can work on your relationship
with Jesus. It is your own responsibility. Your relationship with
Jesus will determine where you spend eternity, in heaven or in hell.
Is Jesus pleased with you. Are you living in close relationship with
Jesus and doing what is pleasing to Him.
May Jesus bless you.

Cry out to Jesus



Jesus is alive and He
answers the prayers of those that cry out to Him in their distress.
Many times in my life the Lord has answered my prayer when I was in
deep trouble. Countless times I called out to Jesus when I was in
fear of death or in sickness or in an accident.
At one time I was
traveling in a remote area with my family, towing a camping trailer
with my truck and the front wheel of the truck burst. I just
said:"Lord help!" and the next thing the truck left the
road, it jackknifed and rolled. Both the truck and the camper were
totally destroyed . We were six souls in that truck and we crawled
out of the truck hardly scathed, just a few scratches and bruises.
The people that drove behind us and saw the accident happening were
looking for dead bodies. There were none. We were all alive. Jesus
kept us I just cried out to Him and said:"Lord help!" He
helped and He kept us alive.
I was once poisoned.
Somebody put poison in my coffee and I cried out to Jesus and He kept
me alive. The next day when I got to work and that person who had
poisoned me saw me alive he ran away. He couldn't believe that I was
still alive.
I was a pilot. I flew my
own aircraft and many times Jesus kept me alive in terrible weather
conditions. I recall one day I was flying and the weather closed in
on me. The next thing I was right in the middle of a thunderstorm,
with lightning striking all around me. It was pitch dark and I cried
out to the Lord, and the next thing a small path opened, and I could
fly along that path out of the storm to safety.
Almost twenty years ago I
had a heart attack and I died. I left my body and I was going down a
deep black hole, I was on my way to hell, but I cried out to Jesus
and He allowed me to come back to come and testify to the whole world
that Jesus Christ is alive.
Many times I was in severe
trouble, sometimes of my own making, but I cried out to the Lord and
He delivered me. Jesus is alive. He is God and He cares for us. He is
compassionate and He answers the prayers of those who call out to
Him, and therefore I'm here today to bring glory and thanks to Jesus,
and to encourage you to cry out to Jesus because he will answer you.
He will deliver you but you must give Him thanks, glory and honor.
Our God is an awesome God! Jesus Christ is Lord. He is alive. He is
Almighty and He saves those who cry out to Him. Cry out to Jesus, He
will answer you and He will deliver you.
May Jesus bless you.

Go Directly To Jesus



Only Jesus Christ can give
us eternal life. Only Jesus Christ can guide us into all truth, but
we have to go to Him. We have to ask Him, we have to seek Him and we
have to follow Him. Most believers do not go to Jesus when they are
in trouble, when they're looking for solutions. Many of them go to
their Bible. They seek solutions in the scriptures. Others run to
other people, but they don't go to Jesus and that is why they do not
receive.
Believers want other
believers to pray for them, they want other believers to ask God for
them, but they themselves don't go to Jesus. Jesus Christ is the only
one who can help us, but if we don't go to Him we will not receive,
and that is why believers perish. They don't go to Jesus. They don't
follow Jesus, they don't obey Jesus, and therefore they do not have
the confidence to go to Him in prayer. They do not really believe.
Jesus Christ alone is the
way and the truth and the life. He is the one that gives life to
everything, but if we don't go to him and if we don't stay with Him,
we will not have life. Are you following Jesus? Are you with Jesus?
Do you go to Jesus with everything? Do you have life? Do you have
Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.

The Greatest Gift



Many Christian believers
are looking for gifts from God. They want security of salvation.
Others want the baptism in the Holy Spirit, they want to be able to
speak in tongues. Others want the gifts of healing and other
spiritual gifts but the greatest gift of all they do not want. They
don't want Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ Himself is
the greatest gift, the Spirit of Christ living in us. Jesus said that
the one who has his commands and keeps them is the one who loves Him,
and Him and the Father will come and dwell with that person. He will
give His Spirit in them, to be with them, to teach them and to guide
them.
The greatest gift is
Emmanuel, Christ with us, Christ in us, but believers want gifts from
God, they don't want Jesus Christ. They want to believe in Jesus for
salvation, but they are not interested in Jesus. They don't want to
hear His voice, they don't want to follow Him, they don't want to
obey Him,and therefore they perish.
Many have received gifts.
They speak in tongues, but they're also curse like sailors, they are
sinners. Many heal the sick, they preach in the streets, but they are
sinners. They've received the gift and they have deserted, gone away
from the Giver. They think that they have security in their gift but
without Jesus we have nothing. We might have His gifts, but if we
don't have Jesus we are lost and doomed. Without Jesus we can do
nothing. Without Jesus we cannot bear fruit.
Jesus said that if we do
not remain in Him and Him in us, we cannot bear fruit, but if we stay
in Him, if we obey Him, walk with Him, follow Him do His will, then
we will bear much fruit for the kingdom of God. If we don't bear
fruit, we all get cut off and burned. Many believers don't want to
bear fruit, they just want the gifts.
Do we want Jesus? Do we
have a desire for Jesus? Do we cherish His presence? Do we spend time
with Him, pray? Do we listen to His voice? Do we seek Him? Do we seek
His will? Are we serious about Jesus Christ or are we only looking
for the gifts? If we have Jesus we have everything, but without Jesus
we have nothing and we can do nothing. Do you have Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.

Take Control Of Your Life Your Destiny



Many believers expect
Jesus Christ to take control of their lives, but that is not what
Jesus said. Jesus said:"Whoever wishes to come after Me, must
deny himself pick up his cross every day and come here follow Me."
We have to take action. We have to take control of our own lives. We
have to make up our mind to follow Jesus Christ and therefore we must
obey Him. Obey his commands; repent,turn away from sin, stop sinning,
be baptized in water, and seek Jesus for the

baptism in the Holy
Spirit.
We have to take action we
have to take control. We have to go after Jesus Christ, we have to
seek His approval. We have to seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit,
the indwelling Holy Spirit in us, to teach and guide us. We have to
seek to hear His voice. Jesus will not take control of us. He will
not come and change your life.You have to change your life. You have
to stop sinning, you have to change your ways, you have to go after
Jesus Christ.

If we submit ourselves to Jesus and obey Him,
repent and be baptized, then He will set us free from the bondage of
sin. He will set us free from addictions so that we can follow Him,
so that we can be in control. Jesus Christ puts you in control of
your own life again, but then you must take control and go after
Jesus. Don't use that control that you've got to go back to sin, and
do wrong things.

Take control of yourself, everyday pick up your
cross follow Jesus. When you wake up in the morning or during the
night, put your mind on Jesus. Get rid of the things that distract
you, get rid of that TV. Stop watching the wrong videos, stop going
to the wrong places. Stop being worldly, stop going after worldly
friends and go after Jesus. Seek Him, seek His approval. Seek His
ways. Do what is pleasing to Him. Seek His voice. He will speak to
you, but if you don't go after Him, then you will not follow Him, you
will not hear His voice. He might speak to you, but if you don't
trust Him and if you're not committed to follow Him, you will
distrust Him and then He will stop speaking to you.
We have to take control of
our own life, of our own salvation, work out our own salvation with
fear and trembling. Don't run after other people. Don't look for
solutions other places, in the Bible or from other people. Go on your
knees and speak to Jesus. Get your mind on Jesus. Be filled with the
Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ dwelling in you. Trust Him, listen
to Him, follow Him, obey Him and He will guide you, but you will
always be in control.
You must take control of
yourself and follow Jesus Christ every day until the very end. You
must make up your mind to follow Jesus, and you must endure with him
until the very end you must pick up your cross and follow Jesus
Christ every day until the end to be saved.
May Jesus bless you.

Broken Molded and Transformed



This is a very important message. I do not want to miss any of it, so I wrote it down and I read it.

Every child of God must be fruitful for the kingdom of God.  Jesus said
that every branch in Him that does not bear fruit will get cut off and
burned. Every newly born again believer needs to be brought up and
transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ to
be useable for the kingdom of God. That transformation is achieved
through our relationship with Jesus Christ.

We are not useable for the kingdom of God in our unchanged form, with a
worldly mindset and way of living, our self-reliance and worldly wisdom.
We need a kingdom mindset. We need to learn to think, live and act like
a child of God. We read in Romans 12:1,2.
"1Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present
your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is
your spiritual service of worship. 2And do not be conformed to this
world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,
so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and
acceptable and perfect."

We need to take on and live the Jesus way, according to His teachings
and commands, as they are also recorded in the gospels Matthew, Mark,
Luke and John. We need to be filled with the Holy Spirit and learn to
follow and obey the guidance and direction of the
Holy Spirit.

The apostle Paul did not just immediately start preaching after he met
Jesus on the Damascus road. He first was taught by Jesus, through
revelation.    Galatians 1:11-24"For I would have you know, brethren,
that the gospel which was preached by me is not according
to man. 12For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I
received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

      13For you have heard of my former manner of life in Judaism, how I
used to persecute the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy
it; 14and I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries
among my countrymen, being more extremely
zealous for my ancestral traditions. 15But when God, who had set me
apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was
pleased 16to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the
Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh
and blood, 17nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles
before me; but I went away to Arabia, and returned once more to
Damascus.

      18Then three years later
I went up to Jerusalem to become acquainted with Cephas, and stayed
with him fifteen days. 19But I did not see any other of the apostles
except James, the Lord’s brother. 20(Now in what I am writing to you, I
assure you before
God that I am not lying.) 21Then I went into the regions of Syria and
Cilicia. 22I was still unknown by sight to the churches of Judea which
were in Christ; 23but only, they kept hearing, “He who once persecuted
us is now preaching the faith which he once
tried to destroy.” 24And they were glorifying God because of me."

Paul was a changed man, and you will also be different when you walk with Jesus and are taught by Him.

After repentance, water baptism and Holy Spirit baptism we need be
reshaped through our relationship with Jesus, submitting ourselves to
Him,  to the  working and discipline of the Holy Sprit.

We do not easily change our ways and our thinking. Often Jesus has to
discipline us in unpleasant, often brutal ways, through loss, pain and
suffering. He does it for our own good, not because He hates us. Like
clay in the hand of the potter, we need to be
crushed, milled, molded and formed to be transformed into the
instrument that Jesus wants to make out of us, to be used for His
kingdom and His glory. We must submit to Him, yield, trust and obey,
even when we suffer.
Jesus Himself, when in the form of a man, learned obedience through
suffering. In Hebrews 5:8 we read:"Although He was a Son, He learned
obedience from the things which He suffered. 9And having been made
perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source
of eternal salvation."

The process never stops, because Jesus is working perfection in those
who follow Him, and who stay with Him. John 15:1 Jesus said: I am the
true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2“Every branch in Me that
does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every
branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.
3“You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
4“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself
unless it abides in the vine, so neither can
you unless you abide in Me. 5“I am the vine, you are the branches; he
who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me
you can do nothing. 6“If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away
as a branch and dries up; and they gather them,
and cast them into the fire and they are burned. 7“If you abide in Me,
and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done
for you. 8“My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and
so prove to be My disciples.”
All the servants of God, disciples of Jesus, are transformed, changed
people. They are not like the world. They are not sinners, they are
saints. They are not just believers, they are followers of Jesus,
disciples and servants of the kingdom of God.
We will only be useable and suitable for the kingdom of God as long as
we keep on bearing fruit. We can only bear fruit if we remain yielded to
Jesus, to be broken, molded and transformed to be used by Him. Psalm
92:14 “They will still yield fruit in old age;
            They shall be full of sap and very green,”
Those who refuse to submit to Jesus to be transformed and used by Him,
will be cut off and burned. They will not enter His kingdom.
Do not believe the false gospel, that you only need to believe in Jesus
to be saved and be part of His kingdom. Become a disciple and follow
Jesus all the way. There is only one way to have eternal life: Obey
Jesus Christ and follow Him all the way, until the
very end.
May Jesus bless you.

Jesus speaks HARSHLY His guidance is FIRM



The words of Jesus are not
nice, and that is why the world rejects Jesus. That is why people do
not want to follow Jesus. The words of Jesus pierce us, they cut us
to pieces. Jesus guides His sheep, they listen to Him and they follow
Him but His words to them are not always nice.
The words of Jesus bring
us into the right relationship with Him, they make us humble and they
bring us into the fear of God. Most Christian believers do not know
Jesus and therefore they do not know His words. They do not recognize
when He is speaking to them. They want Jesus to speak to them but
they expect Him to be nice with them, to tell them nice things about
themselves. They have the wrong expectation. The words of Jesus
purify us, cleanse us, correct us, discipline us.
The discipline of Jesus is
firm. The guidance of the Holy Spirit is exact. When Jesus speaks to
us then we shrivel and we come under the fear of God, we realize own
insignificance and His holiness, we realize that He is Lord and that
we have to serve Him. We have to follow him His way. When Jesus
disciplines us, when He puts sickness onto us, we cannot a shrug off
His hand and say:" I did not feel it." If Jesus puts you
into a sickbed to speak to you, you can run to the doctor, you can
take medication; it will not help, because when Jesus speaks to you
you will hear, because you cannot shrug off the hand, and the
discipline of Jesus Christ. He makes sure that He gets your
attention.
The guidance of the Holy
Spirit is exact, because Jesus requires obedience of us, utter
obedience. We have to do exactly what He tells us to do. We cannot
follow our own mind. If we follow Jesus we must submit ourselves to
His guidance and to His discipline. We must fear Him and we must
respect Him, and when He speaks to us we must humble ourselves and
submit to Him, because He is God, He is Lord. Our God is a consuming
fire and those who walk with Him walk with fire, they fear Him they
respect Him and they love Him.
The kingdom of God is not
about your feelings or your image, it is about Jesus Christ. It is
about dying to self and living for Jesus. It is about obedience and
the fear of God, to serve Him with awe and reverence, because He is
an awesome God. Most believers do not recognize when Jesus is
speaking to them because they do not expect Him to speak to them
harshly, they say it's the devil, but they do not recognize Him
because they do not know Him.
When we follow Jesus, we
live and walk under the fear of God, and we subject ourselves to the
discipline of the Holy Spirit, we serve Him as Lord and Master.
May Jesus bless you.

Guard Your Walk



Jesus Christ will never
leave us and He will never forsake us. He will always be there with
us, but we have to stay with Him until the very end. We have to guard
our walk with Him. If we stray from Jesus, if we leave Him, He will
not hold us back. He will call us back.
If we stray He might
discipline us, put circumstances in our way to turn us from our
wicked ways, to turn us back to Him. Many believers do not recognize
the hand of God when He disciplines them. They become hardened of
heart through the deceitfulness of their sin, because they went their
own way. The Holy Spirit will call us back, convict us to change our
ways, but He will never force us.
Our relationship with
Jesus, our walk with Him, is our responsibility. The quality of our
walk with Him depends entirely on us, because Jesus is faithful, but
if we are unfaithful we will lose Him, we will lose eternal life. We
have to guard our walk with Him and make sure that we are doing what
is pleasing to Him. We must make sure that we obey His commands, that
which He taught, that which He commanded as also recorded in the
Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
We must seek Him. We must
seek His voice, His Spirit, His guidance. If we seek Him, we find
Him; if we draw closer to Him, He draws closer to us. If we ask Him
He will speak to us. He will guide us, He will teach us, but if we
turn away from Him, if we stray from Him, we will perish, if we do
not repent. We have to guard our walk with Jesus. We have to make
ourselves available to Him. We have to seek His guidance, we have to
seek to be pleasing to Him, because if we don't we are not worthy of
Him. If we do not guard our walk we will go stray and we will end up
in hell.
Our relationship and our
walk with Jesus depends entirely on us. If we are not willing He will
not force us. If we don't want to follow Him He will not force us. He
loves us, He cares for us, but He will never force us. If we don't
love Him and if we don't care for Him and we don't care for our
relationship with Him, our walk with Him, then we will not enter His
kingdom. We need to seek to hear His voice. We need to seek to be
guided by him. We need to seek His kingdom and His righteousness. We
need to seek Jesus Himself. If we don't, in the end we will only have
ourselves to blame when He turns us away, and He says to us:"Go
away, I never knew you, you workers of wickedness." We need to
cleanse our lives, repent, be baptized in water, seek the baptism in
the Holy Spirit, seek to hear His voice every day. If we don't, we
will stray from Him. It depends entirely on us where we will end up.
Jesus is willing and He is eager to save us, but if we don't want to
be saved, if we don't want to walk with Him and follow Him, in the
end He will deliver us to our desires. If we love other things more
than Him, then we will end up where those other things take us.
How is our walk with
Jesus? Are we close to Him? Do we seek to obey Him? Do we seek to
hear His voice? Are we serious about the kingdom of God? Are we
seeking revelation from Him, or don't we care? Is it not a priority
in our lives. If it's not a priority then, we're not worthy of Jesus.
If we are lukewarm, He will spew us out" We have to serve Jesus
and follow Him, go after Him with all our heart, with everything that
is in us. Not many are being saved. Jesus said:"Strive hard,
because Strait is the gate and narrow is the door and few there be
that find it ." Very few want to walk with Jesus. Very few guard
their walk with Jesus. Are we serious with Jesus? Do we really love
Him and do we really want to enter His kingdom?
May Jesus bless you.

Religion does not impress Jesus Christ



Jesus Christ is not
impressed with religion. Jesus said:"Why do you call Me Lord,
Lord and do not what I say?" What did Jesus say? He said:"Come
here, follow Me. He is calling us to follow Him, to be in close
relationship with Him, Him with us, guiding us, teaching us, coaching
us, every day of our lives. He calls us to be one with Him, not to
become religious.
Jesus calls us to turn
away from running after our own desires, and after our own plans,
after the pleasures of sin, and come to Him, to be with Him, to
become part of His kingdom. He wants to come and dwell with us, give
His Spirit in us, so that we can be with Him, all the time, forever,
for eternity.
Religion is just a show.
It's just a book of rules, it does not bring you closer to Jesus.
Jesus is calling us. He says:"Come here, follow Me, obey Me,
repent, turn away from your sin, cleanse your life, be baptized in
water for the washing off of your sin, come and walk with Me,"
and He will give His Spirit in us, His Spirit; to dwell with us, to
be with us, all the time. But people do not know that. They think
that they will have eternal life through religion, through going to
church, reading the Bible, talking about Jesus, religious practices,
but that does not bring us closer to Jesus.
Jesus said He will say to
many religious people:"Go away, I never knew you," because
they never came to Him. They never followed Him. They practiced
religion. Jesus calls us to come to Him, to come and be with Him, not
just to pray and then to walk away, but to be united with Him, to be
in constant relationship, constant companionship, with Him, to share
our thoughts with Him, His Spirit with our spirit, in unity with Him,
in fellowship with Him. He calls us to walk with Him.
Have you understood the
message of Jesus Christ? He says:"Come here, follow Me."
Have you turned away from running after your own desires and your own
plans, and the pleasures of sin? Have you turned to Jesus? Have you
come to Jesus and received His Spirit? Are you walking with Him? Do
you know Him? Does He teach you? Does he guide you? Those who are
being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God. If we
do not have the Spirit of Christ, then we don't belong to Him. If we
are not in close communion relationship with Jesus all the time, then
we do not know Him and we cannot follow Him.
Jesus is calling you and
me to follow Him, not to religion, but to Himself, to become one with
Him, one spirit, to become part of His kingdom. Will you answer to
the call? Will you follow Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.

No Restrictions No Excuses



There are no restrictions
for anybody to become a disciple of Jesus Christ and to be used by
Him in a mighty way. Nothing can prevent you from being used by Jesus
in a mighty way. The only thing that can prevent you is your own
unwillingness.
Jesus invites everybody to
follow Him, to become part of His kingdom. He has a plan and a
purpose for everyone, for every disciple, for everyone who becomes
part of His kingdom, but there is one requirement, and that is, we
must be willing. We must totally submit to Jesus, obey Him, follow
Him, trust Him, and He will use us in a mighty way.
Jesus uses those who are
willing to abandon everything, to abandon their own wisdom, our own
abilities, their own mind, their own desires, and subject everything
to Him, to His lordship; to serve Him as Lord and Master. That is the
only way to be pleasing to Jesus. That is the only way to enter His
kingdom, is to totally submit to Him, to trust Him, to abandon
ourselves and thrust ourselves onto Him, and He can use us for His
kingdom.
There will not be any
excuses for anybody for not following Jesus Christ. They will only
have themselves to blame, but we have to go with Him all the way,
until the very end. We have to obey Him, submit to Him, follow Him,
trust Him and stay with Him until the very end.
Are you willing to follow
Jesus Christ? Are you willing to become part of His kingdom, to serve
Him and be used by Him? If you are not willing, you are not worthy of
Jesus. Jesus Christ. is the only way to eternal life, but we have to
obey Him, and serve Him as Lord and Master.
May Jesus bless you.
