There is a separation taking place between those who are evil at heart and those who seek the truth.
The apostle John foretold this in Revelation 22: 11“Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”
12“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. 13“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
14Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. 15Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying."
The Christian churches have been infiltrated by satan. Most churches have become worldly institutions that preach fables. We read about them in Jude 1:4 "For certain men have crept in among you unnoticed — ungodly ones who were designated long ago for condemnation. They turn the grace of our God into a license for immorality, and they deny our only Master
and Lord, Jesus Christ."
If we want to enter the kingdom of heaven we have to separate ourselves from false Christians, purify ourselves of all evil and follow Jesus in holiness.
Those who follow Jesus are a small flock. They hear His voice and they do what is pleasing to Him. They do not fit in with main stream Christianity.
The unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God. We read in 2 Corinthians 6:14"Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?
16Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said,
“I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM;
AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.
17“Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE,” says the Lord.
“AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN;
And I will welcome you.
18“And I will be a father to you,
And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,”
Says the Lord Almighty."
Sadly many of those who call themselves believers are not followers of Jesus. They call themselves Christians but they are false. They are not children of God.
Separate yourself from them and follow Jesus. Come out from among them and Jesus will accept you. Purify yourself, stop sinning, obey Jesus, be baptized in water, be filled with the Holy Spirit, follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit and you will be pleasing to Jesus.
May Jesus bless you.

Many people claim to be Born Again but obviously they are not Children of God because they are SINNERS.
We read in 1 John 3:9 "No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God."
If you are a Born Again Child of God you do not sin, you are like your Father, you do as Jesus did. He did not sin while walking on this earth. He showed us the way, He gave us the example of how to live and He told us what do do.
Jesus did not leave us to our own devices, He did not write a manual. He instructed His disciples, who recorded many of His words in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. He also gives His Holy Spirit to be in and with those who accept and obey Him, those who wish to follow Him, who repent and are baptized in water, as He commanded. The Holy Spirit will remind them of the words that Jesus taught, will teach and guide them in all truth and will reveal to them things to come.
A Born Again Child of God lives like Jesus. He follows the guidance of the Holy Spirit and DOES NOT practice sin.
If a believer is still a sinner, he is not born again, he is not a child of God, as we read in 1 John 3:4-10 "4Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. 5You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. 6No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. 7Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; 8the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 9No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother."
Have you been Born Again? Have you repented and been baptized in water? Have you received the baptism in the Holy Spirit and are you following His guidance? Have you stopped practicing sin and are you bearing fruit for the kingdom of God?. Is it obvious from your fruit, whether you are a child of God or not.
May Jesus bless you.

There are many people who say that they BELIEVE IN JESUS, that they are Christians. But there is no fruit of REPENTANCE in their lives. They are exactly the same as the world. They haven't changed. What does REPENTANCE MEAN my friend? Repentance means that you DON'T SIN ANY MORE. It doesn't mean that I am sorry and I have done it again and o man I am a sinner and I am going to do it again, No! It means, I don't go there no more. I am not a smoker any more, I am not a fornicator any more, I am not an adulterer any more. I FOLLOW JESUS, I have TURNED AWAY from that. I am not serving me any more, I serve Jesus. I don't walk after my own mind and the desires of my flesh. I follow Christ. That is what repentance means my friends.
We read in Matthew about John the Baptist when he preached the coming of the Kingdom of God, of Jesus Christ coming. Then many people came to be baptized and amongst them were the RELIGIOUS PEOPLE of the day, they also came. They also wanted to be baptized, just to have a security, an insurance. Like many people today, they got to have a Church,
they got to belong to a Church. They just want, you know the insurance. It is not going to pay out my friend. Like many insurances, most insurances don't pay out.
Your Church is a bad insurance. The only true insurance is REPENTANCE. So these people also came to John the baptist to be baptized. Because they wanted this, just to make sure, you know. They also wanted to be baptized just in case. What did John the Baptist say to them? We read in Matthew 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Saducees, these are of religious people, coming for baptism. He said to them,”You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Therefore bring forth fruit in keeping with your repentance and do not suppose to say that you can say to
yourselves, we have Abraham as our father, for I say to you that God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham. And the axe is already laid at the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear fruit, is cut down, and thrown in the fire.”
My friends, we need to grow fruit, we need to produce fruit of repentance. FRUIT OF REPENTANCE MEANS, that everybody can see, Johnny is not the same guy any more. He is CHANGED. He don't curse any more, he doesn't go to these places, he doesn't drink. He doesn't listen to dirty jokes, he got rid of his television. He is not interested, he is interested in ONE THING, IN JESUS CHRIST. He is not interested in the insurance of Church any more because he found out that those guys are just selling insurance. They themselves don't know Jesus, because they are sinners. Their preacher tells them from the pulpit that they are all sinners. Because they are sinners. Johnny has changed, he is not going to that church any more. HE IS FOLLOWING JESUS! He has changed, he is a new man. He has become a CHILD OF GOD, he does not sin any more. He is not scared to testify for Jesus, he tells every body, that Jesus has came into his life, and has changed him, has delivered him, from all those vices. He is now a SON of GOD. He tells every body, he warns them, he is concerned about them, because they are going to HELL. He's got the LOVE OF CHRIST in him That is REPENTANCE my friend, that is showing the FRUIT OF REPENTANCE, it is when you become HOLY. And you WALK WITH GOD. You are not concerned about yourself any more, about self realization, about ME. You become concerned about Jesus, about the Kingdom of God. Because my friend, every tree, every branch, that does not bear fruit, will be cut off. Jesus said that, He said every branch in Me, that does not bear fruit, will be cut off. And the axe is already lying at the root of the tree. Is the axe lying at your root my friend? Are you bearing fruit? Are you BEARING FRUIT OF REPENTANCE or have you just bought some insurance? You just say I BELIEVE IN JESUS and that is where it stops. Because the devil also believes in Jesus and he SHUDDERS. Do you SHUDDER like satan, he is scared my friend. satan shudders, because he knows, he knows what is waiting for him. He knows he is going into HELL, into the pit. But he also wants to take you along, that is why he is telling you a nice story. He says don't worry, God don't care man, You got the insurance, you got a church, you know those guys, the pastor says my brother, God bless you. But you know what, you don't know God.
If you KNOW GOD my friend, if you KNOW JESUS CHRIST, you BEAR FRUIT of REPENTANCE. Then this life is not interesting to you anymore, all that is interesting to you, is PLEASING JESUS CHRIST. Is testifying for Him, telling the world, to REPENT. Say my friend you got to repent, you are on your way to hell. There is only ONE WAY and that is JESUS CHRIST. You want to see your friends in HELL? You want to go to hell my friend? You got to bear fruit of repentance, you got to show them the way. You know who the WAY is? JESUS CHRIST. And if Jesus is in you my friend,
you will bear fruit of repentance. Many people say Jesus is in them, but they bear the fruit of the devil my friends. What fruit do you bear? Are you bearing fruit of repentance? Are you a child of God? Or are you by profession a child of the devil, because you keep on sinning. You do the works of your father, satan. Have you REPENTED? Are you a SON OF GOD? Can you only talk about Jesus. Are you on a new course? Have you changed direction? Can everybody see it in you, does Christ speak through you and in you? Does He live in you? Or are you still a SINNER?
REPENT my friend and BEAR FRUIT OF REPENTANCE, unless the tree gets CUT off. Because the axe is already lying at the root of the tree.
May Jesus Bless you.

Salvation is not about the Bible. It is about your relationship with Jesus Christ, the Living God; knowing, obeying and following Him.
Only Jesus Christ can give you eternal life. Jesus Christ alone is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Jesus reveals Himself to those who seek the way to heaven, who seek truth and who seek eternal life.
Most Christian believers do not know Jesus. They are just religious. They believe in the Bible and they believe the doctrines and teachings of men. Many do religious practices, They go to church, listen to the teachings of preachers and have fellowship with other like minded people who also do not know Jesus. They all belong to the same
church denomination because they believe the doctrines of the church. They believe that they belong to the right group with the right beliefs. They feel themselves superior to those who do not belong to their group but still, they do not know nor follow Jesus. There are thousands of church denominations that have different beliefs, but they all believe they are right, they are only deceived hypocrites on the broad way to destruction.
Many study the Bible because they think that their knowledge of the scriptures will help them to get into heaven, but they do not obey the words of Jesus (the red letter words in some Bibles), as recorded in the Bible, in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
The only way to have eternal life is to know Jesus, to obey and follow Him. The only way to meet Jesus is to humble yourself before Him, on your knees and to pray, seek Him with all your heart. Obey the gospel of Jesus, repent, turn away from sin and from going after your own ways. Turn to Jesus, plead Him forgiveness for your past sins, stop sinning, sin no more, be holy, be baptized in water as He commanded. He will make you new inside and take away the guilt of your past sin.
You must be born again to enter the kingdom of heaven, you must become a child of God. Jesus gives you the new birth in your spirit, when you obey Him, repent and are baptized in water. He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit if you stay with Him. His Spirit, the Holy Spirit will come and dwell in you to teach and guide you in all things so that you can follow Jesus and do what is pleasing to Him.
It is all about your relationship with Jesus. you have to seek Him and stay with Him. Other people cannot help you. You must walk with Jesus every day. It is a lonely road, but it is the only road. Not many are willing to follow and obey Jesus. That is why not many are His true followers, children of God, who do the will of God.
In the Bible we read the testimonies of those who walked with Jesus, who heard Him speak and who followed Him, His disciples. They became the apostles who wrote the books of the New Testament, John, Peter, James and Paul, among others. Their testimonies were recorded to encourage the readers to follow and obey Jesus as they did. It is good to read but we have to follow Jesus ourselves and have our own relationship with Him. We have to know Him through His revelation of Himself to us. We have to know and follow Jesus.
Do you know Jesus? Do you obey and follow Him? Seek Him today and you will find Him. Follow and obey Him, stay with Him until the end. Without Jesus we have no hope of salvation.
May Jesus bless you.

God has written His laws in the hearts of all men. We all have a conscience. We all know right from wrong.
God will judge all men according to their deeds. There will be no exception. Those who repent, turn from their evil ways and obey the voice of God speaking in their heart, will find mercy. To those who seek the truth God will reveal Himself in Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit convicts the whole world of sin, righteousness and judgment, but few listen and take heed and that is why they will perish. People are evil. They accept and go after evil. They listen to demons and reject the voice of their own conscience as well as the conviction of the Holy Spirit. On judgment day they will have two witnesses testifying against them, their own conscience and the Holy Spirit.
If we obey our conscience, we will do good, not evil. If we obey the Holy Spirit of God and seek the Truth, the Holy Spirit will reveal Jesus to us and He will guide us into all truth.
God has revealed Himself to mankind in many ways, through our conscience, through creation, through nature, He has spoken through holy men and prophets. He revealed Himself through Jesus Christ, who did many miracles, was rejected, crucified, and resurrected to die no more. The dealings of God with man were recorded by men and were included in the Bible, that is freely available to most of the world. God also gave His Holy Spirit to convict the whole world, and guide those who seek the truth, into the whole truth.
Most people are evil and selfish. They seek their own desires at all cost and reject the truth. That is why they will be condemned and cast into eternal punishment and torment in damnation.
Jesus Christ is the only way, life and truth and the Holy Spirit will reveal Jesus to us if we seek the truth. Nobody will have any excuse on judgment day.
Today is the day of salvation. Seek Jesus today. Repent from all evil, stop sinning and obey the words of Jesus as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Repent and be baptized as Jesus commanded, seek Him with all your heart and He will give His Holy Spirit in you to teach and guide you into all truth. Obey Him and stay with Him until the end, then you will do right and He will give you eternal life.
May Jesus bless you.

To follow Jesus is not easy. To follow Jesus where He leads you often seams impossible, because Jesus leads you into and through the impossible. Without Jesus you cannot go where He leads you and you cannot do what He tells you to do, because without Jesus we can do nothing.
To follow Jesus requires faith and endurance. If you follow Jesus you must expect resistance, rejection and closed doors but if you stay with Jesus you will overcome. You will conquer and succeed and the glory will go to Jesus, because it will be obvious to all that without Jesus your could not have done it.
If you do not stay with Jesus you will fail and not be suitable for His kingdom because He said that: “No one who puts his hand to the plow and then looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:62.
Even when Jesus sends you and guides you the road will often seam impossible. You will come up against closed doors, but if you call on Jesus, pray and stay with Him, He will make a way. Never give up. It is written:"BUT MY RIGHTEOUS ONE SHALL LIVE BY FAITH; AND IF HE SHRINKS BACK, MY SOUL HAS NO PLEASURE IN HIM."Hebrews 10:38.
Press on, endure, follow Jesus until the end, never give up, or you will fail and not be fit for the kingdom of Heaven
May Jesus bless you.

Start your day right. When you wake up, thank Jesus for the new day and for His blessings, name them. Then ask Him to fill your mind. Stay aware of Jesus all day. You will not sin, you will experience His joy and peace.
May Jesus bless you.

Many Christian believers are fast asleep. They believe lies, the doctrines of men. They have been lulled asleep by lying preachers. They go back to church every Sunday to be tranquilized into fruitlessness by their pastors. They are not bearing fruit for the kingdom of heaven because they are not witnessing for Jesus. They are useless for the kingdom of God.
Salvation is about following Jesus, day by day, being led by the Holy Spirit, doing the will of God. It is not about going to church and having fellowship with other believers. It is not about taking others to church. It is about taking them to Jesus, making disciples of Jesus, encouraging them to endure with Jesus until the end..
The gospel of Jesus Christ, His words, as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, is about, turning from sin, turning from our own ways, repenting and following Jesus EVERY DAY, being in close relationship with Him. We can only witness for Jesus if we know Him, through our relationship with Him. We can only bear fruit for the kingdom of God and bring glory to Jesus if we stay with Him.
The whole world is paranoid about education, studies and qualifications. Christians are paranoid about Bible study, but they are not concerned about knowing and following Jesus, about having and being led by the Holy Spirit.
Jesus gives the Holy Spirit in those who obey Him, repent, are baptized in water and who seek Him with all their heart. The Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth, will teach us all things.
A tree is known by it's fruit. If we are not fruitful witnesses of Jesus and for Jesus, then we are not of Him. If we do not obey His words, live holiness and righteousness, sin no more, then we are not grafted into the True Vine, Jesus Christ.
Those who are led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God. If we do not have the Spirit of Christ, we do not belong to Him. If we are led by the Holy Spirit, we will be Light, not darkness, we will be saints, not sinners.
Can the world see that we are different? Can the world see Jesus in us? If not, we are only fooling ourselves.
May Jesus bless you.

All things are possible with Jesus, but without Jesus we can do nothing. Many professing Christians say that they cannot stop sinning. That is because they are not with Jesus.
The apostle Paul wrote:"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13.
Jesus requires of us that we repent, stop sinning, be holy, follow Him, and bear fruit in order to have eternal life.
"His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 4Through these He has given us His precious and magnificent promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, now that you have escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
5For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith virtue; and to virtue, knowledge; 6and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. 8For if you possess these qualities and continue to grow in them, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But whoever lacks these traits is nearsighted to the point of blindness, having forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins." 2 Peter1:3-9.
The words and commandments of Jesus, His requirements of those who follow Him, as also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, are clear and precise. Those who disobey Jesus will perish. His words are impossible to keep, for those who do not trust in Him and stay with Him, but those who stay with Jesus can overcome. They can do everything that He requires of them.
Are you overcoming? Have you repented, stopped sinning and are you living in obedience to Jesus. Are you fruitful, multiplying, bringing other souls to Jesus. Are you living in victory because you are following Jesus and staying with Him?
May Jesus bless you.

Christians are human, just like all other people. Jesus cam to this earth as a man, in a human body, the same as we have. Although He was the Son of God, He had no super powers, He felt pain and was subjected to the same weakness and temptation as we are. When you become a born again child of God, you are still human, and just like other people, you are subject to the same threats and physical limitations. You can also get sick like other people.
Does Jesus heal all sickness of Christians that ask Him for healing? No. Can Jesus heal all? Yes.
Why does He not heal them? Only He knows, and He can reveal it to us, if we ask Him and He wants to reveal it to us.
Nothing happens in the life of a child of God, that God does not permit. He directs our footsteps, He cares for us, and the devil cannot touch us or do more to us than God permits. Jesus will also not allow us to be tempted above what we can endure.
We are called for Jesus' purpose. We have to live for Him and subject ourselves to Him in all things. We have to trust, follow and obey Him in all circumstances, in sickness and in good health, in good and bad times.
We must always ask Jesus for His guidance and His will to be done. Jesus can speak to us through sickness also. That is why we must pray and ask Him to show us why we are sick. He will show us and give us understanding, maybe not immediately, but if we trust Him and stay with Him, we will learn. Our sickness may be caused by many things, including self inflicted reasons, like bad eating habits, misusing our bodies or nutritional deficiencies.
We must always first go to Jesus, pray and ask Him to show us. We can ask Him to heal us, or give us direction as to what we should do. I once had terrible pain in my shoulder that lasted for months. I could not lift my arm above my shoulder and I could not sleep on it ether. I prayed and that night I dreamed that I was eating jello (gelatine). I started using gelatine and in a few days my shoulder pain disappeared. I had a nutritional deficiency. Many times I was sick, I prayed and Jesus healed me.
Twenty years ago, I died of a heart attack. I left my body was on my way to hell and pleaded with Jesus to let me come back to life. He let me come back to be His witness and He taught me that we have to bear fruit or else we will get cut off and burned. Last year I became very sick and was diagnosed with rectal cancer. I went through many surgeries, had sepsis, was unconscious for a month in ICU, died twice and was resuscitated, went through chemo and radiation, followed by more surgery, enduring much pain, but I had the opportunity to witness to many whom I would otherwise never have met. The doctors and medical staff marvel when I walk into the hospital, they say that me being alive is a miracle and that God has a purpose for me.
Is it wrong to go to the doctor? No it is not a sin to go to the doctor, but where do you go first? To Jesus or to the doctor? In whom do you trust? Jesus knows. We have to bear fruit for Jesus and the kingdom of God, or else we are useless. Like seed growing in good soil, we must multiply, or else we are worthless for the kingdom of God. We must be disciples and make disciples of Jesus through our testimony in words and in deeds.
The question that needs to be answered is: Do we only trust in Jesus when we prosper and when we are in good health? Do we stay with Him when life turns on us, when we lose everything, when we are sick? Jesus will never leave us, nor forsake us, even in our struggles, disappointments, trials and tribulations but we will be tested whether we are faithful to Him.
We have many examples of people who remained faithful to God in the Bible; Job, David and the prophets to name a few.
Sickness and eventually death, are part of life, but the questions to be answered are : Will we remain faithful to Jesus until the end? Will we bear fruit for the kingdom of God, even in old age? Are we like a tree, planted by the water stream, that bears fruit in and out of season? Are we faithful children of God, followers of Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.
