Salvation is being ONE with God through His Spirit, the HOLY SPIRIT dwelling in us and bringing us into UNITY WITHE HIM so that we can KNOW HIM and SERVE HIM and DO His will, being part of HIS KINGDOM.
Jesus Christ brings us into the presence of God IF we OBEY Him. Sin separates us from God and Jesus takes away the GUILT of our sin IF we REPENT, turn away from sin and accept Him as our Lord and Master, which means that we must obey Him, repenting of sin and being baptized in water for the washing off of our sins and then in holiness and righteousness WAITING on the baptism in the Holy Spirit, the INFILLING, the CONNECTION with God, making us part of His Kingdom. Then we have to OBEY the Holy Spirit, live in holiness and obedience to Him to be part of the Kingdom of God. If we disobey Him then we separate ourselves from Him just like Adam separated himself from God through his disobedience.
God does not tolerate disobedience or sin. No sinners come into the presence of God. Most Christians do not know Jesus and therefor they do not know God. Most Christians have never repented, not been baptized in water, have not received that connection, the baptism in the Holy Spirit, the infilling with God's Spirit and they are not led by the Spirit of God, they are PRACTICING RELIGION. They DO NOT KNOW GOD and that is why Jesus will say to them:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.”
Have you got that CONNECTION with God? Are you led by the Holy Spirit? Jesus said:”My sheep LISTEN to My VOICE and they FOLLOW Me.” That is the REQUIREMENT of being a CHILD OF GOD. You must KNOW His VOICE, you must be connected by His Spirit that dwells in you. If you do not bow down before Jesus and REPENT of sin, stop sinning, be holy, accept Jesus as your Master and OBEY Him, follow Him every step of the way, then you will NOT COME INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD. You will not become part of the Kingdom of God. You can read and know your Bible as much as you want, you can believe what you want, you can quote as many verses from the scriptures as you please but if you are not led by the Spirit of God YOU ARE NOT A CHILD OF GOD! If you are not connected to Him and not obeying Him, following Him every day, then you are not HIS, then you are LOST. And that is why most Christians will end up in hell. They never repented, they never obeyed Jesus, they were never baptized in water, they never received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, they never became one with God and therefor they WILL PERISH.
Are you ONE with God? Are you a child of God being led by the Spirit of God that indwells you? Are you part of the Kingdom of God?
May Jesus bless you.
