Many people hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and they believe. many of
them are born again but very few of them survive. Very few of them
endure with Jesus Christ until the end, because they do not realize that
when you accept Jesus Christ and you are born again of the Spirit of
God, you enter into a spiritual battle field, satan and his armies are
against you and he will try to destroy you.
We cannot fight against
the devil in the natural. Even with your best intentions,even with all
the Bible knowledge in the world, and all your own power you cannot
stand against satan, you cannot stand against the wiles of the devil.
cannot survive on your own. Most believers do not make it, they are
destroyed by satan. The reason is that they never earned to trust in
Jesus, never learned to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. satan
will try his utmost to snare you, to lay traps for you, to distract you,
and in most cases he succeeds, because believers trust in their natural
abilities, natural senses and then their own power, to overcome satan.
We cannot overcome on our own. We need to follow the guidance of the
Holy Spirit, we need to be spiritually perceptive to overcome, and we
can only be spiritually perceptive if we are tuned in to the Holy
Spirit; through prayer, through being filled with the Holy Spirit and
following the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Without Jesus Christ we can
do nothing. He sent the Holy Spirit to teach us and to guide us into all

knowledge, we cannot be led by other people. We need to be led by the
Holy Spirit and that is why most believers do not survive. They have a
good intentions but they don't survive because they are fighting in
their own power. They trust in other people, they trust in themselves,
they trust in their own knowledge of the Bible, but they do not trust in
the Holy Spirit, they do not trust in Jesus. They have never learned to
listen to Him, to trust Him, to obey Him and to follow Him and that is
why their perish, that is why they do not survive.
Are you being led
by the Holy Spirit? Is your focus on Jesus Christ or are you trusting in
the Bible, your preacher, other people? Without Jesus we can do
nothing. Go on your knees and cry out to Him, seek Him with all your
Ask Him to always fill you with His Spirit. Seek more of Jesus
every day. Let Him live in you and dwell in you, and stay tuned in,
vigilant. Listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit and trust Him. Let Him
guide you and teach you. That is the only way that you will endure and
survive until the end.
May Jesus bless you.
