Most professing Christians are practicing a useless, fruitless religion and in the end they will end up in hell. They are wasting their time!
Jesus Christ said: ( Mark 7:6-8) “And He said to them, "Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: 'THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME. 'BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.'"Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men."
The only way that we will have eternal life is if we OBEY Jesus Christ but very few professing Christians will quote Jesus Christ, they will say that “they say,” the pastor says, the Bible says, Paul says, Peter says... What really matters is WHAT JESUS SAYS and whether we are DOING what Jesus SAYS, what He tells us to do.
Jesus said: (John 14:23) "Anyone who loves me will OBEY MY TEACHING. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.” The CONDITION is that we must OBEY the TEACHINGS of Jesus as they are also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
Further Jesus says in John 14:21 “Whoever HAS MY COMMANDS and KEEPS THEM is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and SHOW MYSELF TO THEM." If we OBEY Jesus Christ, truly love Him, serve Him with all our power, all our heart, not just a show, not just religion but from the heart, then Jesus Christ will reveal Himself to us and we WILL GET TO KNOW HIM, Him and the Father will come and live WITH US, make their home with us, inside of us.
Jesus said: (John 14:15) “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.16“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; 17that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.” Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to those who OBEY Him, who REPENT from their fruitless lifestyle of sin and self-gratification and OBEY Him, who live in holiness and righteousness, who REPENT and are BAPTIZED IN WATER in obedience to Jesus, He promises the Holy Spirit to them, the Holy Spirit that will guide them into all truth. He did not send us a Bible, He promised the Holy Spirit who will guide us.
We read in John 16:12-14 “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14“He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you.” 15“All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.“ Jesus Christ promised the Holy Spirit to those who truly love Him, who seek Him, who want to follow Him and they will be led by the Holy Spirit, who will TEACH THEM ALL THINGS. Jesus did not disclose everything that was to be disclosed and was to be known. He said to the disciples that they could not bear it, they could not handle it, they would not understand it and therefor He promised the Holy Spirit who would reveal these things to them and to us who truly love Him and who follow Him. Going to church and practicing religion will not get you into heaven. You have got yo OBEY Jesus, SEEK Him, REPENT, be BAPTIZED IN WATER IN WATER, FOLLOW Him, SEEK His Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth.
It is not what others say, not what the pastor says, what Paul says, what Peter says, what the Bible says (the verses that you pick and choose) it is what the Holy Spirit says that matters. If you do not have the Holy Spirit and do not LISTEN to the Holy Spirit, FOLLOW HIM, then you are practicing a useless religion and you will end up in hell because you will not get to know Jesus Christ!
Are you LED by the Holy Spirit? Do you truly LOVE and FOLLOW Jesus Christ under guidance of His Spirit, or are you practicing a useless religion? May Jesus bless you.
