Spiritual Perception - In touch with God
Many people call themselves Christians, they believe in Jesus Christ and they believe that they are SAVED, they believe that they have salvation and if they die they will have eternal life, but these same people have no SPIRITUAL PERCEPTION, they are not in touch with God.
Jesus Christ said:"My sheep hear My voice and they follow Me." If we are not in touch with Jesus, if we do not hear His voice then we are not His sheep, then we do not have any relationship with Him. We need to come into relationship with Jesus Christ. We need to live IN TOUCH with Him.
Jesus Christ said that if we obey Him , He will reveal Himself to us. I read from John 14:21“He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”
Verse 23“If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him. 24“He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me. "
Most Christian believers are not IN TOUCH WITH GOD. They do not know where they stand with Jesus Christ. They do not know Him because they do not obey Him. Sin and disobedience separates us from God. If we are living in sin we cannot have any relationship with God. He does not abide with sinners. Jesus Christ said that Him and the Father abide IN and WITH those who OBEY His commands. Many believers refuse to obey Jesus Christ. They refuse to obey His words. They rather go with people, listen to their preachers, but they don't know Jesus, they don't follow him, they don't obey Him. Jesus commanded that we repent and be baptized in water and then He will give His Holy Spirit in us to guide us into all truth.
Most believers have a Bible, they have a church, they believe they are saved but they have no SPIRITUAL PERCEPTION they are NOT IN TOUCH WITH GOD. They do not hear from God. They are not His sheep. They are lost and yet they believe that they are saved. They believe that they have salvation based on some Bible verses. Jesus Christ will say to most believers the day that they die, He will say to them:"Go away from Me I never knew you, you workers of wickedness." He will say that to many preachers, many people who were very religious. Jesus will deny them because they were never in touch with Him, they just practiced religion.
We cannot follow Jesus Christ , we cannot be part of his kingdom, we cannot do what is pleasing to Him if we are not IN TOUCH with Him, if we are not lead by the Holy Spirit. Most Christian believers do not have the Holy Spirit, they do not know Jesus Christ.
Do you have SPIRITUAL PERCEPTION? Do you know where you stand with God? Do you HEAR His VOICE? Do you LISTEN to Him and do you follow Him? Do you DO what is pleasing to Him? Are you lead by the Holy Spirit? Are you TRULY a child of God? Do you know whether Jesus is pleased with you? Are you IN TOUCH with Him?
Is your relationship with Jesus Christ REAL? Do you truly KNOW Him?
May Jesus bless you.
