Doing the will of God

If you constantly make yourself aware of the presence of Jesus Christ and seek to be pleasing to Him then He puts His mind into you, His wisdom, and He guides your footsteps so that you WILL DO those things that are pleasing to Him.
Is your mind set on Jesus Christ? Do you really want to please Him? Because for those who love Him and who follow Him ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE and the OVERCOME because they follow Him every step of the way.
Do YOU want to overcome? Do you want to have eternal life? Then keep your eyes on Jesus and He will guide you every step of the way.

May Jesus bless you.

Jesus NOT the Bible

Eternal life IS Jesus Christ, the only true and living God, KNOWING HIM and living in constant communion with Him. Those who KNOW Him and FOLLOW Him talk about Him. They tell the world about Him because they KNOW Him.
Many only know the Bible, many are only religious, that is all that they can talk about because they DO NOT KNOW JESUS CHRIST. They do not live in communion with Him.
Do you KNOW Jesus Christ? His sheep LISTEN to His voice and they FOLLOW Him every day. He IS their LIFE. Do you KNOW Jesus? Have you found the only true living God, Jesus Christ and are you living in CONSTANT COMMUNION with Him?

May Jesus bless you.

Like the Wind

You MUST be born again to be a child of God and SEE the Kingdom of God. You cannot be EDUCATED into being a child of God. Jesus Christ said that the wind blows where it wishes (John 3:8), you don't know where it is coming from and where it is going, such is everyone who is born of the Spirit of God A person who is born again does not go after his own desires or ambitions, but like the wind blows where it wishes, the Holy Spirit of God takes them and uses them where God wishes. It is not a matter of EDUCATION but of BEING LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
A child of God does the will of God, that is his PURPOSE, he is part of the Kingdom of God.
Have YOU been born again? Do you SEE the Kingdom of God and are you GOING AFTER GOD'S PURPOSE? Are you LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD or are you merely RELIGIOUS? You need to be BORN AGAIN to SEE the Kingdom of God. You need to be born of the Spirit of God to be a child of God.
Have you been born again? Are you like the wind or have you just been indoctrinated?

May Jesus bless you.

Everything is POSSIBLE

Everything is possible for those who follow Jesus Christ because He Himself goes ahead of them. Many so-called believers say they cannot stop sinning. It is because they are not following Jesus.
Make up your mind, deny yourself, pick up your cross every day and follow Jesus Christ and NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU.

May Jesus Bless you.

Show that you are serious

Many people say that they love Jesus but at the same time they also confess that they cannot stop sinning. It is the same as being married and having many other lovers. The same people also say that Jesus does not talk to them, they don't hear His voice.
If you do not show by your deeds that you are serious about your relationship with Jesus Christ HE WILL NOT ANSWER YOU. Your faith is in vain. If we draw closer to Him, He draws closer to us. Show by your DEEDS that you are serious about following Jesus. REPENT, STOP SINNING, BE HOLY, OBEY JESUS, BE BAPTIZED IN WATER for the washing off of your sin, GO AFTER Jesus, seek Him with all your heart and He will reveal Himself to you.
May Jesus bless you.

The Fatal Mistake Many Christians Make

Most people who profess to be Christians make the fatal mistake of not getting to know Jesus Christ for real. They only believe IN Him but they have no real relationship with Him.
Jesus Christ gives the Holy Spirit to those who OBEY Him, who REPENT from sin and from going after their own lusts and their own desires, their own ambitions and turn around, FOLLOW Him. Those who OBEY Him and who are baptized in water and who SEEK Him to them He gives the Holy Spirit, His very own presence, to be with them and to guide them every step of the way, to teach them, to transform them into children of God, to those who EARNESTLY SEEK and FOLLOW Him. They are the ones who get to KNOW Him for real.
But those who do not seek Him, who do not get to know Him make the fatal mistake of believing that they are saved and when they stand in front of Him He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you, workers of wickedness.”
Have you come to KNOW Jesus Christ, do you follow Him every day? Do you obey Him or are you making the fatal mistake of just believing in Jesus Christ?

May Jesus bless you.

The Unknown God

Many people call themselves Christians but most of them do not know Jesus Christ, they do not know His voice, they do not LISTEN to Him and they do not follow Him. Most of those people are just religious, they have no real relationship with Jesus Christ. Many of them are preachers but they don't know Jesus. And that is why Jesus will say to many of them:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.”
Do you know Jesus Christ? Do you listen to His voice or is He to you also the UNKNOWN GOD. Jesus Christ IS God Almighty and He reveals Himself to those who earnestly seek Him. Have you found Jesus Christ?

May Jesus bless you.

Jesus Christ Is BIGGER than the Bible

God Almighty, the Creator of all things revealed Himself to mankind in the form of Jesus Christ but the world did not accept Him they rejected Him. Even today people regard the Bible higher than Jesus Christ, they seek for eternal life within the pages of the scriptures, of the Bible, but they reject Jesus Christ. They do not know Him.
When God Himself in the form of Jesus walked this earth He said to the people:”You diligently search the scriptures, in there to find eternal life but you REFUSE to come to Me and HAVE LIFE.” Jesus Christ Himself IS GOD, He is the Way the Truth and the Life, there is no other. You do not need a Book, You do not need other people's advice. All you need is Jesus Christ Himself!
If you seek Him, you will find Him. If you do not seek Him and you reject Him you will perish because He is God Almighty. HE IS GREATER THAN EVERYTHING. He is the ALMIGHTY!
Do you know Jesus Christ the ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD and DOES HE KNOW YOU? When you pass from this earth, when you leave this body, will you see Jesus as He is and will He accept you, invite you into His Eternal Kingdom? Or will He say to you:”Go away I never knew you, you worker of wickedness. You UNBELIEVER, you never believed in ME. You believed in other people, you believed in the Bible but you never ACCEPTED ME.”
Have you ACCEPTED that HE IS GOD and do you give Him the respect and reverence, do you SERVE HIM as God and Master? Are you continuously in AWE of your Master Jesus Christ OR do you not know Him?

May Jesus bless you.

Make Every Effort

We read in the gospel of Luke 13:24 that somebody asked Jesus whether those who are being saved are few. Jesus replied and said:”MAKE EVERY EFFORT to enter the narrow door because many will try hard and not be able.” Many believers say that they cannot stop sinning, they cannot obey the words of Jesus, they say they cannot be perfect as Jesus commanded. Jesus said:”Be perfect like your Father in heaven is perfect.”
How much EFFORT are we putting into following and obeying Jesus Christ? How hard are we trying? If we do not put every effort into seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness we will enter! We will not find the narrow door. How much EFFORT are we putting into following and obeying Jesus Christ? Are we putting every bit of energy, EVERY EFFORT into DOING THE WILL OF GOD? Or do we just believe that we will be saved because we believe in Jesus? Then we are living in a fool's paradise.
We have to put EVERY EFFORT into doing the will of God because many will try hard and not be able. How hard are we trying? How much effort are you putting into your relationship with Jesus Christ?

May Jesus bless you.

What Matters is How you Finish

Many people hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and then they say a sinners prayer, they accept Jesus Christ as their Lord, Master and Savior. They promise to follow Him and obey Him in that prayer but very soon they turn away from Him, they don't keep their promise, they leave Him.
Many people fall in love with somebody and they get married, they make marriage vows but very soon their love grows cold, They find somebody else and they leave the one to whom they vowed to be faithful for life.
It is only those who remain faithful to Jesus until the very end that will have eternal life, it is only those who keep their vows. Many turn away from Jesus. Some want to go back. What is important is not how you start the race but how you finish it. You might have known Jesus, you might have followed Jesus and then backslidden into the world. What matters is HOW YOU END. GET BACK TO JESUS. Love Him, obey Him, follow Him and KEEP YOUR VOW, stay with Him until the end and He will give you LIFE. It is only those who endure until the end that will have eternal life.
What really matters is not how you start but how you finish. Are you running the race with endurance in such a way that you will win the prize? How do you intend to finish?

May Jesus bless you.

The Profit Motive

The whole world is driven by the profit motive. People are always scheming, thinking of how they can benefit from what they say or what they do. Their motives are selfish. Even preachers and churches want to benefit from the people.
The child of God is motivated by the Spirit of God, his only desire is to be pleasing to Jesus. What is YOUR and my motive? Why do we do things? Do we want to achieve some selfish ambition or gain some benefit or are we seeking to be pleasing to Jesus? What motivates us, the Spirit of God or our own selfish desires? Are we TRULY children of God?

May Jesus bless you.

The Judgment

We read in John 3:18 why men will be judged. Jesus said:”This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world but men loved darkness more than Light because their deeds were evil.” Jesus Christ is the Light of the world, and He came into the world to expose darkness, to expose the sin of mankind, to take away the sin of the world for those who WANT to be pure and holy like Him. But those who love darkness are already judged because they hate the Light and they love wickedness, they love sin.
Many profess to be believers but they love sin, they don't come to Jesus, they are only religious. They quote Bible verses and they go to church, they might carry a Bible but they are evil because they don't come to the Light. They do not walk with Jesus, they do not STOP SINNING.
Jesus said that those who love the Light come to the Light so that their deeds can be shown that they are pure and holy and that they are done in and through Him but those who love darkness, who love sin, they run away from Jesus, they run away from the Light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. That is why most Christians cannot stop sinning, THEY LOVE SIN. They hate the Light. They don't want to come to the Light, they don't walk in the Light, they walk in darkness and they are darkness, they are separated from God because they refuse to come to the Light. ”This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world but men loved darkness more than Light because their deeds were evil.”
Do you love the Light and walk in the Light? Or do you run away from the Light and try to defend your sins and wickedness? Are you OF the Light or of darkness?

May Jesus bless you.

Rich People

Rich people are arrogant and self sufficient. They think that they control their own lives, they think that they rule the the world and they think that they can serve God on their own terms. A rich ruler came to Jesus and said to Him:”Master, What must I do to have eternal life?” and Jesus said to him:”Keep the commandments.” He said:”I have done all of that since my youth.” And Jesus said to him:”If you want to be PERFECT, sell all you have, give it to the poor and come here, follow Me.” He walked away very sad. And Jesus said:”It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of Heaven.”
Do you want to be PERFECT? Do you want to be part of the kingdom of God? Then you have to give up all your riches, your money, your position, your knowledge, your arrogance, become poor, submit yourself to Jesus and you will inherit the kingdom of God. Jesus said:”Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the other things will be added unto you.”
Do you want to be PERFECT and fit into the kingdom of Jesus Christ or do you want to be rich arrogant, self sufficient, in-submissive to Jesus and end up in eternal damnation?

May Jesus bless you.

A New Nation

If you want to have eternal life you have to become part of a NEW NATION, the Kingdom of God. You have to accept Jesus Christ as LORD, KING and MASTER and you have to SERVE HIM. You will have to GIVE UP your own identity, your country, your patriotism, your RIGHTS to yourself, totally SURRENDER YOURSELF to Jesus Christ and SERVE HIM as Lord and Master. You have to OBEY every command that He gives you. You have to be led by His Spirit and DO what He tells you to do.
You have to become part of the NEW NATION, the children of God. They are ALIENS and passers through in this world. They are IN this world but not OF this world. Their ambition is to do the WILL OF THEIR FATHER, God. They do not have any earthly ambitions. They do not seek to establish and fulfill themselves, their only purpose is to fulfill the purpose for which God wants to use them. They become like Jesus Christ who did not come to do His own will but to do the WILL OF THE FATHER. He did not say or do anything on His own initiative but everything that the Father told Him He DID and He SAID. If you are a Child of God, part of the NEW NATION, the NATION OF GOD, the KINGDOM OF GOD then you LIVE to do the will of God. If you do not LIVE FOR JESUS you will perish for sin and for your own desires.
Have you become part of the NEW NATION, are you living for Jesus Christ, for God your Father? Are you part of the Kingdom of God?

May Jesus bless you.

Carnal Mentality vs Kingdom Mindset

All people have a CARNAL MENTALITY. The way that they think is determined by where they grew up, the nation that they were born into, the culture from which they are, the work that they do. All of those things mold their thinking and that is carnal thinking which is not suitable for the Kingdom of God. When people come to Jesus they want to carry their carnal human thinking through to their relationship with Jesus Christ. Your MINDSET HAS TO CHANGE. You have to lose the carnal mentality. You have to become a child of God.
Different nations have different mentalities. Some nations are industrious. Some people live off the system, they have never worked in their lives, their parents never worked, they are part of the first world SYSTEM. Some countries are naturally deprived, poor countries, people just want to beg, they don't want to work and they think that if they serve Jesus they can be exactly the same.
You have to lose your CARNAL MENTALITY, you have to be TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWAL OF YOUR MIND in order to be a child of God and then you do not fit into any culture or any country, you fit into the Kingdom of Heaven.
Your mind can only be transformed if you follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, then you are born again, you are changed, you get a different mindset. The natural mindset has limitations. A child of God has no limitations. God has no limitations, whatever He wills He does. A child of God does the will of God without limitation. That is why people say they cannot stop sinning or this thing is impossible and that thing is impossible, they have got a CARNAL MINDSET, they have got a CARNAL MENTALITY. For those who believe in Jesus Christ and who follow Him nothing is impossible. Has your mindset been changed? Do you have a Kingdom mindset? Are you a child of God?
A child of God is PERFECT because he OBEYS his Father. Jesus said:”Be ye PERFECT like your father in Heaven is PERFECT.” You can only do the will of God if you have a Kingdom Mindset and you have lost your CARNAL MENTALITY. If you do not follow and obey Jesus Christ you will not acquire a Kingdom Mindset and you will not be suitable for the Kingdom of Heaven.

May Jesus bless you.

Knowing and Doing the Fathers Will

If you KNOW Jesus Christ and have been born again by the Spirit of God then GOD IS YOUR FATHER and He gives you the Holy Spirit so that you can KNOW what the will of God is. His Spirit guides you and teaches you and you don't need anybody to teach or guide or advise you, YOU LISTEN TO YOUR FATHER.
You don't need a Bible, you don't need a preacher, you ONLY NEED TO LISTEN TO YOUR FATHER, God, to be led by His Spirit because you ARE A CHILD OF GOD. Are YOU a child of God? Do you KNOW HIS WILL and do you DO IT?

May Jesus bless you.

Do Not Delay

Many people know that they are not right with Jesus. Many know that there are things that they need to do the Lord has called them to do. Many have not yet been baptized in water. Many have not yet started following Jesus Christ and they keep on putting it off for later.
Today is the day of salvation. Do not put off or delay doing what you have to do. Do it TODAY. When you hear the voice of the Master, ANSWER and DO what he tells you to do.
Follow Jesus Christ TODAY and every day and DO what he tells you to do.

May Jesus bless you.

Do Not Worship The Image

Most believers only worship an image of Jesus Christ, an image that they have created in their minds, an image with limitations and certain qualities that they attribute to Him, an image that is limited by their perception of the Bible. They do not know Jesus.
They have never met Him because then they would know that He is greater than any definition, than any image, than anything that you can think. Jesus Christ IS God Almighty. If you meet Him then you will realize how SMALL YOU ARE, HOW LITTLE YOU KNOW, how insignificant you truly are and how enormously great and magnificent, INDESCRIBABLE Jesus Christ is. You will fall down and worship Him and you will ask HIM to teach you, to reveal Himself to you and you will be constantly in AWE of Jesus Christ your Master.
Have you met Jesus Christ THE MASTER? Or do you worship an image?

May Jesus bless you.

Godless Christians

The world is full of GODLESS CHRISTIANS. That is an oxymoron. How can a person be a Christian without God? But that is the truth. There are many who profess to be Christians but they are just like the world. They are fornicators, adulterers, they are in every respect exactly the same as the rest of the world. They also have churches and Bibles, they have religion and they think they have salvation but they don't have Jesus Christ.
They CANNOT STOP SINNING because they are not of Jesus. They just have a form of godliness but they have denied the power thereof. They are denying and rejecting Jesus Christ. Do you have Jesus? Or do you have all the other things? All you need is Jesus Christ. If you have Jesus then you will be like Him. You will not treasure or value the things of the world. All that will matter to you will be to be like Jesus and to be pleasing to God your Father.
Are you a son of God or are you as DECEIVED GODLESS CHRISTIAN?

May Jesus bless you.

If You Really Believe You Will

Just believing in Jesus Christ cannot save you. If you really believe in Jesus Christ you will go after Him, you will obey Him and follow Him, you will walk with Him moment by moment. You will not stray from Him. You will want to be pleasing to Him every moment. Most believers do not believe in Jesus. They believe in the Bible, they believe in other things. They do not walk with God. They walk with a Bible, they fellowship with other Christians, they ask their advice from other people. They watch videos. They listen to preachers but they do not follow Jesus, they do not pray. They do not LISTEN to HIM. They do not know Him!
If you believe in Jesus you will SERVE Him in your spirit. You will be constantly aware of HIM. You will be sensing His Spirit all the time and you will DO that which is pleasing to Him. Do you really believe in Jesus? Do you know Him? Do you SEEK HIM? Do you SERVE Him in your spirit? Is He always on your mind? Or don't you really believe? If you truly believe in Jesus you will not leave Him but you will follow Him, you will WALK WITH GOD because JESUS CHRIST IS GOD! Do you know Him and do you follow Him? Do you REALLY believe?

May Jesus bless you.

Happiness is

Happiness is knowing Jesus Christ and being pleasing to Him. Happiness is being approved of by Jesus, trusting Him and knowing that He will never let you down. Happiness is being content even when you have nothing and you have given up everything but you know that you HAVE Jesus Christ.
Happiness is hearing the voice of your Master IN THE STORM when your life is in turmoil and it seams as though everything is going wrong but you know that Jesus is with you, you have nothing to fear! There is nothing to be concerned about because Jesus is in control. Happiness is to know that your sins are forgiven and your Master is pleased with you. Happiness is to be able to sleep even in the storm.
Are you happy? Do you have Jesus Christ?

May Jesus bless you.

Beating Around The Bush

Most people who call themselves Christians never get to know Jesus. They never get into the right relationship with Him, that relationship of SERVANT / MASTER. They keep on beating around the bush. They don't seek Jesus, obey Him and get to know Him. They never follow Him, they don't pray, they do not know His voice. They never repent. Many are never baptized in water. Most of them never receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. They have no relationship with Jesus Christ. They do not know Him and when they die they will stand before Him and He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.”
Many of them quote the Bible, the PLAY RELIGION. They go to church, fellowship, praise and worship but they do not know Jesus. They have got no relationship with Him whatsoever. They talk about Him but they don't know Him, they don't LISTEN to Him and they ask other people what Jesus thinks of them or how they should go about things. You should be led by the Holy Spirit of God ONLY. If you follow Jesus you do not ask the opinion of other people. You ask Jesus about everything and you DO what he tells you to do or else you do not know Him.
Do you KNOW Jesus and do you FOLLOW Jesus? Or are you also beating around the bush? Get to know Jesus before it is for ever too late.

May Jesus bless you.

Sinning Believers Hate Jesus

When you meet Jesus you are immediately aware that you are poor, naked and blind, you are unworthy to be in His presence and you cry out to Him for mercy because you KNOW that you are undeserving of His grace and mercy. You KNOW that you need Jesus. You WANT to be clean, you want your filth washed off so that you can be with Him for ever and be in His presence.
MOST BELIEVERS HAVE NEVER MET JESUS CHRIST they don't know Him and THAT IS WHY THEY SIN. They have never met Jesus Christ. Some believers have met Jesus but like a dog they have gone back to their own vomit to eat it, like a pig, a sow that is washed they have gone back to the mud, gone back to sin.
If you KNOW Jesus and you love Him you will HATE SIN, you will run away from sin. You won't even want to have anything to do with it. You will just want to be PURE, CLEAN and HOLY so that you can experience the presence of Jesus Christ and be pleasing to Him.
Have you met Jesus Christ?

May Jesus bless you.

Understanding God

The only way that you can KNOW and UNDERSTAND God is if you know Jesus Christ because Jess Christ reveals God Himself to you. The apostle John wrote in 1 John 5:20 “And we know that the Son of God has come, and He HAS GIVEN US UNDERSTANDING so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God BECAUSE WE LIVE IN FELLOWSHIP WITH HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST. He is the only true God, and HE IS ETERNAL LIFE.”
If you do not KNOW Jesus you do not know God and you do not have LIFE. If you have no fellowship with Jesus you don't have eternal life. You cannot find God in the Bible. You cannot find UNDERSTANDING through your studies and through your endeavors. You need REVELATION of Jesus Christ and you find that when you seek the LIVING GOD, Jesus Christ ON YOUR KNEES, when you HUMBLE yourself before your MAKER and you CALL OUT TO HIM and you CONNECT WITH HIM in you SPIRIT and you say:”Lord I need Thee! Please, please reveal Thyself to me!”
If you seek Him you find Him and He will reveal Himself to you because HE IS GOD, He made you!. The only way to know God is to KNOW Jesus Christ THE LIVING GOD.
Do YOU know Jesus Christ?

May Jesus bless you.

Useless Fruitless Accumilation of Knowledge

The world has been brainwashed into accumulating fruitless knowledge that is never applied by those who accumulate the knowledge. People think that if they have education or qualifications that, that is the avenue to future prosperity and a good life.
That is a lie! The only ONE who gives LIFE, both here and in eternity is Jesus Christ, not the accumulation of KNOWLEDGE, be it secular knowledge or Bible knowledge. It is KNOWING Jesus, OBEYING and FOLLOWING Him that will give you EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEED for LIFE both now and for eternity.
Jesus said:”Seek FIRST the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all the other things will be added unto you.” If you OBEY and FOLLOW Jesus Christ, REPENT of your futile senseless lifestyle and turn from sin, turn from following your own mind and from being brainwashed by other people and you OBEY Jesus; REPENT, BE BAPTIZED IN WATER, SEEK Him for the Holy Spirit then He Himself by His SPIRIT will GUIDE you and will TEACH you TRUE KNOWLEDGE, will guide you and will give you REAL LIFE.
If you want LIFE all you need is Jesus. Jesus IS the way the life and the truth. SEEK Him, FOLLOW Him, TRUST Him and OBEY Him and you will have life, reject Him and seek knowledge and you will perish with your knowledge.

May Jesus bless you.

You Deserve HELL

All men have sinned and come short of the glory of God and they all deserve hell, that includes you and me. But IF we repent of our wicked ways and we embrace Jesus Christ as LORD and MASTER and we FOLLOW Him until the very end then He will lead us into the Kingdom of God, He will GIVE us eternal life.
We will never be or never become DESERVING of the grace of God. WE ARE UNWORTHY and that is why only through Jesus Christ we have any hope of eternal life. Without Jesus we can do nothing but we must follow and obey Him until the very end. We must never become arrogant and think that we are better than anybody else or that we deserve anything because then we are close to the fall. We must HUMBLY SUBMIT ourselves to Jesus every day and follow Him until the very end. We must always be humble before Jesus Christ our Lord and Master and know that our life hangs on a thread, that thread is the grace of God. Let us not despise the Grace of God. Let us not become boastful because then we will fall.
Jesus Chris is LORD and we are UNDESERVING, UNWORTHY. Let us SERVE Jesus Christ as LORD so that He can be pleased with us and accept us into His Heavenly Kingdom.

May Jesus bless you.

POWER To Overcome

Our struggle is not in the natural. It is against evil forces of darkness that are doing their utmost to cause us to sin and to end up in hell. The reason why most believers cannot overcome and why they fail is because they are trying to overcome and defeat the devil by their own power, by their natural power. The only way that we can overcome satan, can overcome the desires of the flesh and the evil forces that attack us is if we do it by the POWER that Jesus gives to those who submit to Him and follow Him and that is the POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. All the knowledge in the world cannot help you to overcome the devil. You need the POWER and the WISDOM of the Holy Spirit of God. Without the Holy Spirit, without Jesus we can do NOTHING.
The only way that we can overcome is if we SUBMIT to Jesus, OBEY Him and get FILLED with the Holy Spirit and then we have the POWER to overcome satan. We have to then STAY WITH JESUS, stay IN HIM, IN OBEDIENCE IN SUBMISSION to Him and then HIS POWER ABIDES, stays in us and we overcome satan because we FOLLOW Jesus and DO as He commands us to do EVERY DAY, STEP BY STEP.
It starts with submitting yourself to Jesus, REPENTING. Repent of SIN, repent of DEPENDING ON YOUR OWN POWER, depending on your own wisdom and then depending on Jesus Christ alone and on His Spirit that He will put in you. You have got to OBEY Jesus, you have got to REPENT, turn away from sin, turn away from trusting in yourself and trust in Him alone, OBEY HIM. Be BAPTIZED IN WATER and PRAY, SEEK the BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT so that you can be FILLED WITH THE POWER OF GOD! Stay WITH Jesus, follow HIM, stay IN HIS POWER , stay IN OBEDIENCE TO HIM and you WILL defeat the devil.
On your own you can do nothing but WITH Jesus we WALK IN VICTORY every day!

May Jesus bless you.

Where He Leads

Jesus Christ is the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE and He gives eternal life to those who follow Him and who OBEY Him. But we have to go after Him and follow Him where He guides us. We have to DO what He commands us to do.
Jesus did not send us a road map or a guide book, He guides His disciples by His Spirit. every day, step by step. He said:”Whoever WISHES to come after Me must deny himself, pick up his cross every day and come here, follow Me.” Many start but very few endure. If we put our hand to the plow and look back we are not worthy of Jesus or of His kingdom. He said:”My righteous one will live by faith but if he withdraws My soul will have no pleasure in him.” Many start but very few endure until the very end. Very few STAY with Jesus and go where He guides them. Many just become religious, others just fall away. It is only those who endure until the very end that will win the prize of eternal life.
Are you willing to GO where He guides you, to follow where He leads you, to DO what he tells you? Are you willing to ENDURE until the very end?

May Jesus bless you.

Having a Good Time

The apostle Paul described the MODERN DAY CHRISTIAN to Timothy in 2 Timothy 3: 1 “But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2For men will be LOVERS OF SELF, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.”
This is your modern day Christian, this is what they are like. They have got no love for God, they love themselves. They are only interested in THEIR SALVATION and in having a GOOD TIME.
The words of Jesus in Luke 12:35 explains those who love HIM and who are pleasing to Him: “Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. 36“Be like men who are waiting for their master when he returns from the wedding feast, so that they may immediately open the door to him when he comes and knocks.37“Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them. 38“Whether he comes in the second watch, or even in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.
 39“But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 40“You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.”
      41Peter said, “Lord, are You addressing this parable to us, or to everyone else as well?” 42And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and sensible steward, whom his master will put in charge of his servants, to give them their rations at the proper time? 43“Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. 44“Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 45“But if that slave says in his heart, ‘My master will be a long time in coming,’ and begins to beat the slaves, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk; 46the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and assign him a place with the UNBELIEVERS.”
Dear fellow believer, where will Jesus find YOU and ME when He comes? With the drunkards and the pleasure seekers or with the faithful servants? Are we carousing and having a GOOD TIME or are we looking after our Master's affairs? Most believers don't want to WORK for God because that is a WORKS GOSPEL but they prefer to have the PLEASURES OF SIN.
Into which of these two pictures do you and I fit? Are we faithful servants or are we pleasure seekers in this world? Jesus will reward every man according to his deeds. Where will He find us when He comes?

May Jesus bless you.

The Word of God is Active Sharp Living

The writer of Hebrews writes in Hebrews 4:12,13:”For the WORD OF GOD is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and ABLE TO JUDGE THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTIONS OF THE HEART. And there is no creature hidden from His SIGHT, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.”
The Word of God IS Jesus Christ, when He speaks to you it cuts you to the bone. It unsettles you, it brings you on your knees, it disrupts your life, it makes you realize that you are NOTHING, that you are in the presence of the living God. “Man shall not live from bread alone but from every WORD that proceeds from the MOUTH OF GOD.” That is for those who LISTEN, who TAKE HEED AND and who FEAR God.
Many people do not fear God. They apply the scriptures to their liking and they live as THEY please but they don't know God. When God speaks to you IT CUTS YOU, IT DISRUPTS YOU, IT DESTROYS YOU but it builds you into that which God wants you to be. Most believers do not know God. They do not know His voice. They do not follow Him.
Jesus said:”My sheep LISTEN to My voice and they FOLLOW Me.” Most believers do not LISTEN to Jesus because they do not know His voice. They are not His sheep. They do not know the ONE with whom they have to do but we will all stand before His throne. If we do not recognize and KNOW His voice right now, if we do not FEAR Him and OBEY Him it will be a fateful day when we stand before Him and He says:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.” Then those words will cut you for ever and for eternity. It is better to LISTEN to Jesus RIGHT NOW, to go on your knees and to seek Him, to say:”Speak Lord, Your servant is LISTENING.”
Are you LISTENING to the words of Jesus? Are those words piercing you, cutting you, disrupting your life, and sending you where He wants to? Are those words directing you and using you as an instrument for the Kingdom of God or are you following after your own pleasure. Do you HEAR the Word of God?

May Jesus bless you.

Seek God Not Just His Benefits

The whole world wants the benefits of God, the good things, the good life, eternal life but they do not want God's ways. Jesus Christ is God's WAY. God sent Jesus Christ to come and show us the WAY to be children of God and if we want eternal life we will have to follow Jesus Christ and His ways.
You cannot have God's benefits without having God's ways. If you reject Jesus Christ and His ways you will perish.
Are you following and obeying Jesus Christ? Are you going after Him and after His ways or do you just want God's benefits. People seek eternal life everywhere BUT Jesus. Jesus said to the pharisees:”You seek the scriptures in there to find eternal life but you refuse to come to Me and have life. Have you found Jesus? Are you going after Jesus and His ways? Are you seeking His approval? Have you received His Spirit and are you led by His Spirit? Do you follow and OBEY Jesus? Do you go after Him every day?
Jesus is the WAY. He is the DOOR and He will say to many in that day:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.” Why? They didn't follow after Jesus. They followed after their own ways and they thought that they could have God's life without Jesus. Without Jesus you have got NOTHING. You have got no hope. Are you going after Jesus and God's ways or are you just seeking the benefits? Because in the end you will be a fool. He will turn you away and say to you:”I don't know you where you are from.”
Do you know Jesus and does He know you? Are you seeking and following HIM every day?
May Jesus bless you.

Don't Go Naked

Government officials, soldiers and policemen wear uniforms that identify them with their job, with their country. They also wear name tags that identify THEM. The soldier of Jesus Christ also identifies with Jesus, he also PUTS ON Jesus when he wakes up every morning, he is the LIGHT of the world and his light shines wherever he goes.
If we do not put on Jesus every morning when we get up then we are not clothed, we are NAKED. Do you put on Jesus every morning? Are you clothed or do you go naked? Are you the LIGHT OF THE WORLD? I hardly ever go out without a t-shirt that identifies me as a child of God, a t-shirt with a message that warns people to REPENT, that tells them that I am a child of God and I identify with Jesus. On my car there are stickers that warn people to REPENT, that challenge them whether they are followers of Christ or whether they don't care about Jesus.
Do YOU identify with Jesus? Are you the LIGHT OF THE WORLD? Or do you go NAKED? When Jesus comes, will He find you clothed in your UNIFORM or will you be naked? Are you shy to identify yourself with Jesus. If we deny HIM before this wicked generation, He will certainly also deny us before His heavenly Father and His holy angels.

May Jesus bless you.
