Do Not Sin



The wages of sin is death. Those who keep on sinning will end up in hell. Jesus warned that if you even look at a woman with lust, you will end up in hell. We read the words of Jesus in Matthew 5: 27“You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’; 28but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29“If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30“If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.

Jesus said:"Sin no more." Those who do not repent, stop sinning and obey Jesus, will end up in hell.

We read in 1 John 1:5"This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. 6If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; 7but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us."

Many say that they love Jesus and that they believe in Him but they keep on sinning. They are only deciving themselves. They will end up in hell if they do not stop sinning and live holy.

We read in Hebrews 10:26 "For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27but a terrifying expectation of judgment and THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILL CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES. 28Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30For we know Him who said, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY.” And again, “THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE.” 31It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God."

Those who keep on sinning will end up in hell. Without holiness no man will see God. No sinners will enter heaven.

May Jesus bless you

Does God want you to be homeless?



Most believers have a misconception about the words fo Jesus when He said that we have to be willing to give up everything to follow Him. It is of no use to do as Jesus said to the rich jong man:" sell all that you possess and distribute it to the poor," if you do not also do the latter part of the command:"and come, follow Me.” Luke 18:22

Becoming homeless, being a hermit, living in seclusion, becoming a monk or a nun does not bring you closer to Jesus. You need to be willing to give up everything, to follow Jesus. Jesus said:"If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple."Luke 14:26.  You must be willing to reject the advice and demands of father, mother, wife, children even your own desires to obey Jesus and submit to Him in all that He requires of you, but you need to hear from Him in order to follow and obey Him. If you did not hear from Jesus then you are acting on your own initiative. Abraham was willing to sacrifice Isaac, his son, when commanded to do so by God, but that was only AFTER God had told him to do so.

Faith comes by the hearing of the word of God. We can only act in faith and obedience to Jesus AFTER we have heard from Him. If we act on our own initiative, we are not acting in faith, but rather in presumption.

Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. If you do not act because you have heard from Jesus then you are not following Him. If you follow Jesus He will provide in all your needs and those of your dependents. He will provide everything that you need to fulfill His will, BUT you have to be following Him, not your own mind or other people. You have to hear from Jesus for yourself.

Three times in my life I sold everything, gave it away, both my wife and I, we got rid of everything that we owned, apart from some clothes and a few other items, that could fit in a travel case, and we went where Jesus sent us. We are where Jesus wants us to be and we are doing what He tells us to do and He supplies in all our needs. We have no affiliations, belong to no organization, have no official sponsors, have no followers. We follow Jesus. We do not ask anybody for donations or support. Jesus has laid it on some of His followers to support us, but we have never asked for anything and we have never come short of anything ether. We have slept on the floor and we have enjoyed luxury. Above all our greatest joy is to know Jesus, to know His voice, to be in His will and to be able to bring others to Jesus. We would not trade that for a mansion and many riches, because then we would not be dependant on Jesus, as we now are.

The more you have, the more independent and separated from Jesus you become. That is why a rich man will hardly enter the kingdom of heaven. A rich man buys everything that he needs and wants, he has no need of God. That is why Jesus said that we cannot be His disciples if we are not willing to give up all our treasures and securities so that we can learn to trust Him, to be totally dependant on Him. It is only when you are totally, desperately dependant on Jesus that you learn to trust Him and that you stop worrying about the things of the world. Those with many possessions have many worries. They worry about losing their possessions, their securities, their support. People worry about being rejected, losing their status, popularity, friends, sponsors and following. Paid preachers cannot afford to offend their church members and followers by speaking the truth. They are slaves to their employers. They are bound, captives, ensnared, by possessions and conventions  that make them unfruitful and unsuitable for the kingdom of God.

Those who have given up everything and who follow Jesus as disciples are free from the bondage of human acceptance and approval. They are free to speak the words of Jesus and to do His will. Their concern is to stay close to Jesus and to do what is pleasing to Him. They get to intimately know Him and  trust Him, through practice. To follow Jesus is never easy. Trials, and tribulations are many. Often the road seams impossible, but they overcome because Jesus guides and upholds them. They know, that without Jesus we can do nothing and thus they do not trust in or hold on to worldly treasures and securities. They trust and follow Jesus.



May Jesus bless you.

God frustrates the plans of the wicked



The unrighteous will not prosper. They labor in vain. We read in Ecclesiates 2:26 "To the man who is pleasing in His sight, He gives wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to the sinner He assigns the task of gathering and accumulating that which he will hand over to one who pleases God."

We read in Luke 12:15 Jesus said: “Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions.” 16And He told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man was very productive. 17“And he began reasoning to himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place to store my crops?’ 18“Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19‘And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.”’ 20“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’ 21“So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

      22And He said to His disciples, “For this reason I say to you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. 23“For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24“Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds! 25“And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span? 26“If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters? 27“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 28“But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith! 29“And do not seek what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not keep worrying. 30“For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things. 31“But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. 32“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.

      33“Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves money belts which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near nor moth destroys. 34“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

Where is our treasure and our desire? Are we seeking and doing the will of God or are we living in selfishness and wickedness, greed and immorality? Are we seeking worldly riches and going after the pleasures of the flesh or are we going after Jesus?

The wicked will lose everything that they worked for and they will end up in damnation.

Turn from sin and evil. Seek Jesus. Obey and follow Him and you will have Life, now and for eternity.

May Jesus bless you

Believe to Receive



Jesus Christ is Lord, He is alive and if we stay in obedience to Him we can pray with confidence and expect to receive what we have asked for. Jesus said: 13“Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14“If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. John 14:13,14.

We read in Matthew 21:22 Jesus said:“And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”

Many believers pray and they do not receive. Many ask Jesus for guidance and wisdom, but they doubt, whether it is not the devil that gives them an answer. The reason why they do not receive and answer is because they do not believe.

The apostle James wrote:"5But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. 7For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, 8being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways." James 1:5-8.

Do you receive when you pray? Do you really believe, when you pray?



 May Jesus bless you.

Be Holy



Followers of Jesus are commanded to be holy. The apostle Peter wrote: 15But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do, 16for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”1 Peter 1:15.16.

Be holy in ALL you do, in mind, in speach, in deeds. Do not associate with the unrighteous.

Do not listen to fowl talk and dirty jokes.

Do not watch worldly movies. Do not allow watch pornography. You are defiling your soul.

Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit of God to dwell in. Do not defile it with sin, immorality, fornication, piercings and tattoos. Be separate, holy, and glorify Jesus in all that you do.

We read in Psalm 1: 1How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,  Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! 2But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. 3He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water. Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.

4The wicked are not so, But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.

5Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

 6For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked will perish."

We read in Hebrews 12:14

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

Be holy in all you do.

 May Jesus bless you.

Why most believers will not enter heaven





Most Christian believers will not enter heaven because they never followed Jesus. Faith without works is dead. Real faith in Jesus leads to action. Those who truly believe in Jesus  obey Him, repent, stop sinning, live holy, are baptized in water and live according to His teachings, as also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. They seek to please Him and He gives His Holy Spirit in them to guide them into serving Him. They hear His voice and they follow Him. They are His sheep, His true disciples.

Do you just believe in Jesus or do you know His voice and follow Him? Have you become a disciple of Jesus Christ?

 May Jesus bless you.

Don't be religious Listen to the Holy Spirit



Many believers think they have to live up to a religious image, act in certain ways, put up a religious front. That is falsehood.

We have to be ourselves but be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and do as He guides us to do. Only then can we bear fruit that is pleasing to Jesus. Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God.

 May Jesus bless you.

How to recognize wolves in sheep's clothing



Many preachers are false prophets and wolves in sheep's clothing. They are the prosperity and grace preachers.

Jesus said:“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. 14“For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

 15“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18“A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20“So then, you will know them by their fruits.

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 7:13-23.

Jesus warned us to stay on the narrow way, to obey His teachings and commandments, to repent of sin and sin no more. There will be no grace for believers who keep on sinning.

Many preachers declare that we are all sinners. They are bad trees that bear bad fruit. They lead the people astray and they will be cut off and burned.  Jesus never promised His followers prosperity or riches. He said that those who wish to follow Him must be willing to give up all their earthly possessions, deny themselves and follow Him until the end. He also said: “Truly I tell you, it is difficult for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”Matthew 19:23,24.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is about discipleship, self denial, holiness, righteousness and obedience to Jesus. Those who preach a different message are false prophets, wolves in sheep's clothing.



 May Jesus bless you.

Bible Believers are DUMB DECEIVED and LOST



Bible believers pick and choose scriptures from the Bible and they believe what they choose to believe based on those scriptures. That is why there are so many different doctrines from the same Bible.

Believing in the Bible cannot save you. Jesus Christ saves those who follow and obey Him. Jesus Christ is the only way.

The only way to be saved from hell and have eternal life, is to believe in and OBEY Jesus, His teachings and commands as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is, in short. Repent and be baptized. Follow and obey Jesus, and you will live.

It is no of no use to study the Bible if you do not obey the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is LORD, and He will decide who will go into heaven and who not. Those who disobey and disregard Him will perish.

Do you follow and obey Jesus Christ?



 May Jesus bless you.

Most people love darkness



Most people love sin. They love darkness. That is why they do not want to follow Jesus. That is why most people will end up in hell.

 Jesus said:“I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”John 8:12

Jesus also said:“This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20“For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21“But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.” John 3:19-21.

If we love Jesus, we will follow and obey Him. We will not sin. We will do what is pleasing to Him.

Jesus said:“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18“A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20“So then, you will know them by their fruits.

      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.’

There is no such thing as a sinning Christian. Those who sin love darkness and they are already judged and doomed. If we follow Jesus, we walk in the Light, we bear good fruit and live righteously and holy.

May Jesus bless you.
