HUMBLE SERVANTS



In this world people strive for status, recognition and fame. Even in
churches there are titles  and high ranking officials,  men
and women of statue and importance. However, in the kingdom of God
those things are of no importance.
Jesus rebuked the
pharisees and was teaching His disciples. He said:
“They love
the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues,
7and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called
Rabbi by men. 8“But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your
Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9“Do not call anyone on earth
your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10“Do not
be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. 11“But
the greatest among you shall be your servant. 12“Whoever exalts
himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be
exalted." Matthew 23:6-12.
We are called to be humble
servants of Jesus,  undeserving, without title or status. Jesus
said to His disciples:7“Which of you, having a slave plowing or
tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from the field,
‘Come immediately and sit down to eat’? 8“But will he not say
to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat, and properly clothe
yourself and serve me while I eat and drink; and afterward you may
eat and drink’? 9“He does not thank the slave because he did the
things which were commanded, does he? 10“So you too, when you do
all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy
slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have done."
Luke  17:7-10.
Are we ready to be undeserving,  humble
servants of Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.

The Gospel of Jesus is about GIVING


God gave LIFE to the world,  by
giving Jesus  Christ.  We read in John 3:16 “For God so
loved the world, that He GAVE His only begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." God
SACRIFICED His Son.
Jesus willingly sacrificed Himself, gave up
His life, to save the world. If we wish to follow Jesus and have
eternal life, then we have to sacrifice ourselves, our own
desires, ambitions, plans, even our life and follow Him. We read in
Romans 12:1,2. "Therefore 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 read in 1
Peter 4:1 "Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh,
arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has
suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2so as to live the rest of
the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the
will of God. 3For the time already past is sufficient for you to have
carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of
sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties and
abominable idolatries. 4In all this, they are surprised that you do
not run with them into the same excesses of dissipation, and they
malign you; 5but they will give account to Him who is ready to judge
the living and the dead. 6For the gospel has for this purpose been
preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in
the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will
of God."
Jesus said: “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he
must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. 25“For
whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his
life for My sake will find it. 26“For what will it profit a man if
he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man
give in exchange for his soul? 27“For the Son of Man is going to
come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY
EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS." Matthew 16:24-27.
That is
the cost of eternal life, the price that we have to pay to have
salvation. Just believing in Jesus will not save us if we do not
sacrifice our will, obey Jesus and follow Him until the end.
May
Jesus bless you.

FOOLISH EXPECTATIONS


Many Christian believers are foolish in
their expectations. They are not willing to pay the price, but they
expect to enter heaven and have eternal life, when they die. They are
not willing to follow Jesus but they expect to find the narrow door
into heaven.
You cannot buy or earn salvation, neither can
anybody else work out your salvation for you. Others can pray for you
and encourage you but you have to walk your own walk with
Jesus.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.  He
paid the price for the redemption of the world and He will decide who
will go into heaven and who not. Jesus clearly explained the
conditions for eternal life. His words and commandments are recorded
in Matthew,  Mark, Luke and John. Those are the words of eternal
life. Those who disregard and disobey them will not have
LIFE.
Jesus promised eternal life to those who believe
in Him AND therefore follow and obey Him.
Your relationship
with Jesus is just like every other thing in life. If you do not
invest in it, do not expect to get anything out.
Many Christians
are not willing to do or give anything for Jesus and His kingdom.
They will be terribly disappointed when they die. They will learn too
late that they were deceived by satan and the false prophets, to
disobey Jesus and not to work on their relationship with Jesus,
not to work for His kingdom.
Many Christians work for their
churches, some even build churches. Others preach and evangelize,
even perform miracles in the name of Jesus,  but they have no
relationship with Him. Neither are they working for Him or His
kingdom. They are working for themselves and their own glory. Many
are famous preachers and church leaders.  They expect to receive
great rewards, crowns and accolades in heaven, but they have foolish
expectations.  Jesus warned: “Not everyone who says to Me,
‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does
the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22“Many will say
to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name,
and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many
miracles?’ 23“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew
you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’ Matthew
7:21-23.
What is our expectation? How much are we investing in our
relationship with Jesus? Are we living and working for Him and His
kingdom? What can we reasonably expect to receive?  As a man
sows, so shall he reap.
Are we seeking the kingdom of God
and sowing our time, our resources,  our work, effort, even our
life, into the kingdom of God?
May Jesus bless you.

THE CHRISTIAN BUBBLE


Most Christian believers live in a
bubble of religious deception, lies and false security. All
Christians reference the Bible as their source  of teaching but
they all have varied versions of the truth. They  all believe
their version to be the best, and some even believe that all
Christians will have eternal life as long as they confess to believe
in Jesus.
The Scriptures testify of the truth, which is
Jesus Christ. All Scripture points to Jesus. He is the way,  the
life and the truth. Scripture as written in the Bible, leads to faith
in Jesus, obedience to Him, and eternal life for those who obey Him.
The words of Jesus,  as recorded in the Bible,  in
Matthew,  Mark,  Luke and  John, are the words of
eternal life.
There is only one truth and one narrow road,
that leads to eternal life, and that is Jesus,  living by His
words  and commandments and follow His guidance, through the
Holy Spirit that He gives in those who seek to follow Him.
The
truth has been  perverted by people who added  their own
teachings and interpretations to what was written in the Scriptures.
All churches have their own teachings, doctrines,  rules and
beliefs, bubbles of lies and deception whereby church members are
encapsulated. Many believers have their own false perceptions. Others
have been  deceived by the words and teachings of other men and
women. All believers have been veiled by lies and layers of
deception. They are living in bubbles of lies and deception.
I was
also deceived by many teachings, perceptions, false beliefs, hoaxes,
false prophecies and my own ignorance. I was also living in false
security of salvation. I also believed I was saved and assured of
eternal life, until I died of a heart attack and found myself on my
way to hell. By my understanding, in my bubble of deception, I was
safe and secure. I was obviously not.
That happened more than 20
years ago. I did not realize how deceived I was and how deceived most
Christians are. Jesus started teaching me, showing me the deception
that is in the world, but more so in churches, how Christians are
being deceived and defrauded by lies from satan.
satan will do
everything to keep you away from Jesus and from following the Holy
Spirit, because Jesus is the WAY and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of
Truth,  that will guide you into all truth, IF you follow
Him.
Jesus gives wisdom, understanding to, and He guides every
person that believes in Him, obeys Him and TRUSTS Him. He is the
Light of the world. Those who follow Him, will not be in
darkness.
That is why most Christians are in darkness, living in a
religious bubble. They are not following Jesus.  They do not
trust Him and they do not know Him, never met Him. Even those who met
Him and were born again do not trust and follow Him. They follow
after people,  churches, their own "interpretation" of
the Bible, that which they choose to  believe. They prefer to
stay in their religious bubble,  rather than to trust Jesus and
follow Him, and that is why they will perish.
You will know the
truth, and the truth will set you free, IF you trust in Jesus,
follow Him and BELIEVE what He tells you.
Do you really want to
know the TRUTH? Then follow Jesus. Get serious with Him. Humble
yourself before Him in prayer. Accept Him. Trust Him and obey Him.
Repent of all sin, stop sinning. Be baptized in water for the washing
off of your sin. Be Holy, sin no more.  Obey the words of
Jesus,  His teachings and commandments as also recorded. In
Matthew,  Mark,  Luke and  John.  Seek
Jesus with all your heart and He will give His Holy Spirit in you,
to teach and guide you.
Come out of the bubble, and trust
Jesus.  Follow Him, and you will know the truth, you will walk
in the Light and He will give you eternal life if you stay with Him
until the end.
May Jesus bless you.

STALE RELIGIOUSNESS



Many Christians are practicing stale
religiousness. Some of them are extremely devoted to their religious
routines, prayers, Bible study, church attendance, charities and
devotions which they religiously practice. They are in a routine or a
groove, and they feel safe and secure in their religiousness. By the
definition and standard of the religiosity that they practice, they
are performing well but there is no spirit, no life and no fruit.
Their hard work and effort is not bringing glory to Jesus, and so it
is fruitless for the kingdom of God.
Their Bible study is like absorbing old
stale bread. It is written that “man will not live from bread alone
but from every word that proceeds from the MOUTH of God.” The
“letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
2 Cor.3:6. It is only when we HEAR from Jesus and are LED by His
Holy Spirit that we can have LIFE in us and have LIFE flowing through
us.
God gave the Israelites manna, bread
from heaven, daily fresh bread. They could only pick up enough for
the day. If they gathered more and tried to keep it for longer it
would go rotten and have worms in it. Jesus is the Bread of Life, the
Word of God. We need to HEAR from Him, GATHER of that Bread every
day, for that day, then we will have LIFE in us and bear fruit for
His kingdom. Without Jesus we can do nothing.
Therefor we pray:”Give us this day,
our daily bread.” Have we heard from Jesus, TODAY? Have we HEARD
His WORDS OF LIFE, Him speaking to us, or did we feed on old stale
bread?
May Jesus bless you.

SPIRITUALLY BLIND AND DEAF


Many Christian believers are spiritually blind and deaf.  They cannot see the kingdom of God
and they cannot hear the voice of God, the reason being that they are
not born again. We read in John 3:1 "Now there was a man of the
Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; 2this man came to
Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You have come
from God as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do
unless God is with him.” 3Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly,
truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the
kingdom of God.”
It is only when a person is born again, that he
can understand the kingdom of God and experience Jesus Christ as Lord
and Master, hear His voice, serve and follow Him.
Many
Christians operate on the level of the intellect and their physical
senses. They believe in what they do not know. They believe in the
Bible and they say they believe in Jesus, but they do not know Him.
Professing to be wise, they have become foolish, because they are
irrational, they believe lies. They believe in an image of Jesus that
they have either made up in their own mind, or that others have
presented to them. They have never met Jesus and never received
revelation from Him. Therefore they do  not know Him, neither do
they HEAR  His voice. They are spiritually deaf. They cannot
understand that others who are born again HEAR Him, because they
expect to hear Him with their physical ears. God is spirit, and He
speaks to His children, those who are born again, in their spirit. He
reveals Himself to them in their spirit.
"Faith comes from
the hearing of the Word of God." Jesus said " “My sheep
hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give
eternal life to them," John 10:27,28. His sheep follow Him
because they HEAR  His  voice.  Many believers do not
HEAR His voice, because they are not born again. Many do not believe.
They trust in their own understanding. They read the Bible and pick
and choose what they want to believe, they listen to other people and
read their books and media, but they do not hear nor listen to Jesus.
They are not His sheep. They are just religious  and deceived.
They think that their  Bible knowledge and church membership
will give them eternal life, but they are not following  Jesus.
They  have no hope of eternal  life. They are spiritually
dead, deaf and blind.
Jesus gives LIFE to those who OBEY  His
words, those who accept Him, repent and are baptized in water and who
seek Him.  He makes them NEW, BORN AGAIN with spiritual ears and
eyes, so that they can hear, see and know the truth. He gives them
understanding of His ways and knowledge of His kingdom. He gives His
Holy  Spirit in them to teach and guide them.  They are not
in darkness because they walk in the Light.
Have you been born again of the Spirit
of God? Do you have spiritual ears and eyes? Do you see the kingdom
of God and hear Jesus speaking to you? Do you follow Him? Are you one
of His sheep?
May Jesus bless you.

THE CHURCH NARRATIVE


The church narrative is an age old plan of satan, to capture souls and make them slaves to the church system,
while making them believe that they are serving God unto salvation.
The church is presented as a vehicle to eternal bliss. The preachers
and clergy are portrayed as facilitators for heavenly passage and
oracles of God, appointed and ordained by God. It is all a lie, a
show, a scam.
Churches are peddling lies and false security,
based on Bible scriptures that have been twisted and applied in such
a way as to support the church narrative.
The church
narrative is a powerful delusion that brainwashes people  and
makes them firm believers and ardent followers of the church and it's
doctrines.  It puts them under bondage and demonizes those who
leave or oppose the church. People are enslaved to church and they
are placed under severe condemnation and persecution if they oppose
or leave the church.
Most of Christianity has been engulfed
by the church narrative and to most professing Christians it is
unthinkable, to be without or outside of a church.
The
church narrative is an evil conspiracy,  a deception that ruins
many souls and blinds them to the truth so that they do not repent
and follow Jesus, but rather follow after the doctrines and teachings
of their church. They submit themselves to the leadership of the
church and seek the approval and acceptance of the church, rather
than the approval of Jesus.
The gospel of Jesus Christ, His words
and commandments,  as also recorded  in Matthew,
Mark, Luke  and John,  makes you free, free from sin and
addictions and free from the narrative of church. The born again
child of God is FREE, free to follow and serve Jesus and the kingdom
of God.
If you want eternal life, you have to escape the narrative
of church, and follow Jesus. Church leads to bondage and damnation.
Jesus leads to eternal life. You cannot follow church and Jesus.
Jesus alone is the way, the truth and the life. Follow Him, and you
will live.
Obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Repent and be
baptized. Live holy and righteousness in obedience to Jesus,
His words as recorded in Matthew,  Mark, Luke and John. Be
filled  with the Holy  Spirit  and follow His
guidance, all the way, until the end, and you will have
LIFE.
Do not get involved in church, because that will be
the end of your walk with  Jesus and your hope of eternal
life.
May Jesus bless you.

THE FALSE GOSPEL FAKE NEWS


The false gospel that is preached in
most churches is not good news,  it is fake news, because it is
all lies. It does not lead to salvation, deliverance and freedom from
sin, but to bondage and deception and slavery to church
institutions.   Neither the preachers nor the believers
have any relationship with God. They are deceived and leading others
to deception,  blind leaders of the blind.
The false gospels
preached in churches are concoctions of Bible verses, held together
with lies, fantasies and doctrines of men. They twist the scriptures
to support their false teachings and promise ignorant gullible people
eternal life and salvation security, while turning them into
followers, donors and financial supporters, slaves of their lying
church institutions.
Millions are being deceived by the
false gospel. They believe it is good news, but they will wake up too
late when they die and stand before Jesus,  and He says to
them:"Go away,  I never knew you, you workers of
unrighteousness."
The true gospel of Jesus  Christ leads
to knowing Him, and Him knowing you, not just assurances based on
Bible verses and doctrines of men. The true Christians, the born
again followers of Jesus,  are His sheep; they know Him, He
knows them, they hear His voice, they follow Him and He gives them
eternal live.
Jesus saves those who accept Him, believe in Him and
obey His words, His teachings and commandments as they are also
recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and  John.
Following
and obeying Jesus leads to a new life, with purpose, sensible,
fruitful, productive,  rewarding and satisfying, filled with
hope, expectation, inner peace and joy.
The gospel of Jesus
Christ is not an ideology. It is not a new set of rules. It does not
mean taking on religion. It is not about Bible  study, religious
indoctrination and complying with certain rules and ceremonies. It is
not a change of mind but a total renewal.
The gospel of Jesus
Christ is powerful. It transforms those who believe and act on it,
from sinners to saints. They become born again, children of God. He
who is in Christ is a new creature, with spiritual senses, ears and
eyes. He sees the kingdom of God and hears the voice of God, he is a
child of God. He LISTENS to God, the Holy Spirit of God, that dwells
in Him. his guidance and confirmation is from God, not from
men.
Fulfillment comes from following and obeying Jesus, not from
men and the things of the world.  Those who are born again
experience Jesus now. Their hope is not on some pie in the sky. They
KNOW and have FELLOWSHIP with Jesus. They are not fascinated and
bewitched by the false fake gospel that is preached in churches. They
follow Jesus and live their lives to glorify Him.
The GOOD
NEWS,  is Jesus  IN and WITH those who know and follow
Him, not the false gospel that is preached in most churches.
Have
you accepted Jesus,  repented and been  baptized in water?
Have you been  born again? Is Jesus living in you, and are you
following Him?
May Jesus bless you.

THE WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE


The words that Jesus spoke are the words of eternal life. Jesus said: “It
is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words
that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 64“But there are
some of you who do not believe.” John 6:63
Jesus
said: “If anyone hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not
judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the
world. 48“He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has
one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the
last day. 49“For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the
Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to
say and what to speak. 50“I know that His commandment is eternal
life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has
told Me.” John 12:47-50.
Jesus
delivered the Sermon on the mount and ended it with these words:
24“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on
them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.
25“And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and
slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been
founded on the rock. 26“Everyone who hears these words of Mine and
does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house
on the sand. 27“The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds
blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its
fall.” Matthew 7:24-27.
Jesus
said: 1“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. 9“Just as the Father has loved Me,
I have also loved you; abide in My love. 10“If you keep My
commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My
Father’s commandments and abide in His love.” John 15:1-10.
The
words that Jesus spoke and commanded were recorded in Matthew, Mark
, Luke and John. Sadly very few Christians obey and live according
to those words. They rather study and quote other scriptures. They
quote Paul and their famous pastors and Bible teachers. They are
foolish and they will perish, because they do not love, cherish nor
obey the words of Jesus. They are not His disciples. They will not
have eternal life.
Many
Christians reject and slander me because I preach and emphasize the
words of Jesus. They are not rejecting me. They are rejecting Jesus
and eternal life.
Do
you love and obey the words and commandments of Jesus? Are you His
disciple, or are you just a foolish believer, one of those who are
always studying the Bible and never coming to the knowledge of the
truth, never getting to know and follow Jesus?
Read
and obey the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John. Obey them, live by them, and you will get to know Jesus. He
will reveal Himself to you. He will guide and teach you and give you
eternal life if you stay with Him, until the end.
May
Jesus bless you.

NOTHING CAN HOLD YOU BACK


Nothing can hold you back if you really want to follow Jesus, because Jesus
came to set the captives free. Many believers are in bondage of sin,
they cannot stop sinning and therefore they cannot follow Jesus.
They are slaves to sin. Jesus said: “Truly, truly, I say to you,
everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. 35“The slave does not
remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. 36“So if
the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:34-36.
You
can be free from the bondage of sin, the lusts of the flesh and of
addictions, if you want to be free. Jesus can and will set you free
if you ask Him, but most people enjoy the pleasures of sin and the
lusts of the flesh. They do not want to stop doing those things. Even
if Jesus sets them free they go back to sin. They have no desire for
holiness.
Without
holiness no one will see the Lord. The unrighteous will not inherit
the kingdom of God. Sinners and sinning Christians have no fellowship
with Jesus, even if they are preachers and prophets. Jesus said:
21“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the
kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in
heaven will enter. 22“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord,
Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out
demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23“And then I
will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO
PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’ Matthew 7:21-23.
No
sin or any other things can hold you back if you really want to
follow Jesus. You will have no excuse when you stand before Him in
judgment. Jesus will set you free and give you all the power that you
need, to follow Him and do what is pleasing to Him. He will not force
you, but if you don't want to follow and obey Him, and be holy, He
will refuse you. He will say to you: DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE
LAWLESSNESS.
Do
you really want to follow Jesus?
May
Jesus bless you.
