Discipleship not just Salvation
The kingdom of God is not just about salvation, about believing in Jesus Christ. It is about being reconciled with God Himself. Jesus Christ is God.
Jesus Christ is God who came in the flesh to draw man unto Himself, to reconcile man with Himself, but few believe in Jesus Christ. Few believed when Jesus came and few believe today.
If we believe that Jesus Christ is indeed God and we OBEY Him, we turn away from our sinful wicked ways, from our selfishness and we follow and obey Him, we live our lives to please Him then we become part of the kingdom of God.
Jesus Christ did not command His disciples to save the world. He commanded them to go into all the world and make DISCIPLES like they were, disciples who would turn away from their own ways, be reconciled with God, follow an OBEY Him, become part of His kingdom. Merely believing in Jesus Christ cannot save you. That is a deception, a lie from satan. Being part of a church cannot save you. Doing Bible study cannot save you. You need to be reconciled with God. You need to come on your knees before the living God JESUS CHRIST, believe in Him, accept Him as GOD, as your King, your Lord, your Master and SERVE Him, live a life that pleases Him, in obedience to Him. Be holy, be righteous. Without holiness no man shall see God. We cannot be part of the kingdom of God if we do not obey and serve Him. We cannot be part of His kingdom if we do not have His Spirit living in us. If we do not have the Spirit of Christ we do not belong to Him. Jesus Christ calls us to be reconciled with Him, to become part of His kingdom, but we have to abandon all else, abandon our own ways, turn away from the ways of the world, deny ourselves, turn away from our own pleasures and our own desires and do His will. We need to become ONE with Him, be lead by His Spirit, be disciples of the kingdom of God or else we cannot be saved, we cannot be saved from the corruption that is in the world through lust and through sin. we need to be reconciled with God and do the will of God, become part of His kingdom or else we will perish.
Repent from your own ways. Turn away from sin. Turn away from doing your own desires and do the will of God. Seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the other things will be added unto you, and He will give you LIFE, eternal life.
Do you believe that Jesus Christ is indeed God? Do you follow and obey Him? Or are you also deceived? If you do not follow and obey Him, become part of His kingdom, you will perish. Not everyone who says to Jesus Lord, Lord, will enter into His kingdom, but those who DO His will, who follow Him every day, who are lead by His Spirit and who DO His will, they become part of the kingdom of God and they will have LIFE. Those who refuse and who reject Him will PERISH.
Are you part of the kingdom of God or are you still going your own way and will you end up in destruction? Turn or BURN. Follow Jesus Christ or you will perish.
May Jesus bless you.
