God will not spoon feed you

Jesus Christ never
promised anybody easy salvation. Jesus said that:"Whoever wishes
to come after Me, must deny himself, pick up his cross every day and
come here, follow Me." He does not expect you to go out of your
way to follow Him. He expects you to abandon your own ways, to
abandon your own life, your own plans, your own ambitions, and your
own desires, to sacrifice yourself, your own pleasures, and to go
after Him. Jesus did not promise to spoon feed anybody. He said:
"Whoever wishes to come after Me must deny himself. If you want
to go after Jesus and have eternal life, you have to obey Him obey
His words, repent, stop sinning, be baptized in water, and seek Jesus
with all your heart.
He promised His Holy
Spirit to come and dwell in those who seek Him, who obey Him. He did
not promise to spoon-feed them, to give them a certificate, to
pamper them all the way. Jesus never begged anybody to follow Him.
His sheep hear His voice and they follow Him, but they go after Him.
Most believers do not hear His voice, because they do not go after
Him. They don't care about Him, they believe the lies that they've
been told a church, that if they only believe in Jesus, that they
will have salvation. That is not what Jesus said. If you believe that
Jesus Christ is Lord, that He is God, that He is the final authority,
your will fear Him, you will obey Him, you will go after Him, you
will seek Him with all your heart, you will abandon your own life,
and go after Jesus. You will seek to please Him you will seek to hear
His voice. If you don't hear His voice it is because you are not
Jesus will not come and
beg you to follow Him. Jesus said He will reveal Himself to you if
you obey His words, if you repent and turn away from your own ways,
and if you live in holiness and righteousness, if you seek Him with
all your heart you will find Him. But most believers never find Him
because they are not interested. They want to be spoon-fed like at
church. They want to go there to be served, like at a restaurant,
they want everybody to do everything for them, they want Jesus to be
there butler, to take care of them, to make them rich, to make them
prosperous. They don't care for Jesus, they don't care for the
kingdom of God. They only care for their own lusts, and for sin, and
for the pleasures of the flesh. They have no desire for God, they
have no fear of God, they have the knowledge of God, they don't know
His voice and that is why Jesus will say to most believers:"Go
away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness," because they
are sinners, they are not holy. They are unrighteous. They are
exactly like the rest of the world. Most of them are even more wicked
than the rest of the world, they are hypocrites and they think that
because they confess Jesus that they will have eternal life. They
will be terribly disappointed when Jesus turns them down, when He
shows them away, when He says to them:"Go away, I knew you."
Jesus said:"Narrow is
the door and few there be that find it, strive hard to enter the
straight gate." Most believers do not believe that. They believe
their pastor and the lies that the hear at church. They do not know
Jesus Christ and that is why most believers will end up in hell. They
have no knowledge of Jesus Christ. Dear friend, if you want eternal
life, if you want to enter the kingdom of God, you have to strive
hard, you have to abandon yourself, your own desires, own pleasures
and go after Jesus every step of the way, live in holiness and
righteousness, and seek Him with all your heart. He will speak to
you, He will guide you, if you go after Him. If you don't care for
Him, you will not enter His kingdom. The kingdom of heaven is for
those who endure with Jesus, who follow Him until the very end. The
rest will be disappointed when Jesus Christ turns them away. Will you
be disappointed or are you going after Jesus Christ every day,
seeking to hear His voice to serve Him to do is will? Are you serious
about the kingdom of heaven? Work out your own salvation with fear
and trembling, because very few will enter into the kingdom of
heaven. Seek Jesus with all your heart and you will find Him.
May Jesus bless you.
