Believing in Jesus Christ is not a gate pass to heaven
The gospel of Jesus Christ has been perverted. Many people wrongly believe that merely believing in Jesus Christ gives you a gate pass into heaven. Jesus Christ is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE and we have to follow and obey Him to enter the kingdom of heaven, but first we must be born again. We must be born of water, through baptism, and be born of the Spirit of God through the Spirit of God that indwells us, the Spirit of Christ.
You cannot follow Jesus Christ if you are not born again because if you do not have the Spirit of Christ dwelling in you. then you do not belong to Him and you cannot see the kingdom of heaven, you cannot hear the voice of the Master and you cannot follow Him.
Jesus' sheep listen to His voice and they follow Him. They do not just believe in Him, they KNOW Him. They know His voice. The serve Him and they follow Him. They go after Him every day.
You need to KNOW Jesus Christ for REAL. You need to become a child of God. Those who follow and obey Jesus Christ become part of the kingdom of heaven. The Holy Spirit dwells in them and they serve the King, Jesus Christ.
Just believing in Jesus Christ cannot save you. You have to know Him, He has to know you and you must follow Him through the guidance of His Spirit dwelling in you.
Have you been born again? Have you received the Spirit of Christ, the Holy Spirit and do you follow and obey the guidance of the Holy Spirit? Do you serve the King, Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
