The reason why most Christians will perish is because they do not bear fruit. We can only bear fruit if we remain IN Jesus, if we stay with Him and stay IN HIS WILL. The fruit that He requires of us is righteousness, holiness, obedience and we must MULTIPLY, we must bring others unto Him. But if we do not testify for Jesus then we are fruitless trees. Many Christians are just DECORATIVE TREES, outwardly they look very good, they look very holy, pious, religious but they do not have the fruit of righteousness, holiness, and they do not witness for Jesus Christ.
Many believers are very religious and they will talk about their church, they will quote Bible verses, they will go to Bible study, they will work for the church but they are not working for the Kingdom of God and therefor they are not bearing fruit. They are not IN Christ, they are not led by the Holy Spirit and that is why they will perish. Those people do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ, they do not HEAR from Him and they are not GUIDED by the Holy Spirit and therefor they cannot bear fruit. Our fruit depends on our relationship with Jesus Christ.
Jesus will say to many believers who thought that they were saved, He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness” because they did not have fruit, they did not have that close relationship with Jesus. Maybe they read the Bible, they attended church, but they were not IN Christ, they were never WITH Jesus Christ and therefor they will perish. Are we CLOSE to Jesus? Are we bearing fruit because we are WALKING WITH HIM?
May Jesus bless you.
