Religious people are
constantly living in fear, because they have to comply with the rules
and regulation of the religion, of their church, or else they will be
excluded and rejected, but the disciples of Jesus Christ, the true
sons of God, are free. They are free to do the will of God. They do
not care what people think about them, they do not care for the
things of the world, they only care to be pleasing to Jesus, and
therefore they are free to do what Jesus requires of them, without
being concerned whether people approve of them or reject them. All
that matters to them is the approval of Jesus Christ.
If you follow Jesus
Christ, then you have laid down your desires for the world. You have
turned your back on the pleasures of sin and you don't care what
people think about you. You only care about Jesus. You are free to do
the will of God.
Are you still a slave to
religion, to churchianity? Or have you repented of religion and are
you following Jesus Christ? Have you become a disciple of Jesus
Christ and a son of God, and are you living in the freedom of the
sons of God, that only seek to do the will of God?
Jesus Christ does not need
you or me, but He loves us and He cares for us, and He invites us to
follow Him; to become children of God and to become part of His
kingdom, but we have to submit ourselves to Him. We have to forsake
ourselves to become part of His kingdom and to serve Him.
Nothing that we are, that
we have, can please Jesus. It is only our submission, our willingness
to Him and our obedience to Him that makes us suitable for the
kingdom of God. We have to submit to Him, so that He can crush us and
mold us and make us into useful instruments, that He can use for His
kingdom. Jesus will crush our self-confidence, our worldliness, our
confidence in the things of the world, He will crush our wisdom. He
will crush our independence, so that we can learn, that without Jesus
we can do nothing. That is why Jesus says that if we wish to follow
Him we have to deny ourselves and pick up our cross every day, follow
None of our initiatives,
our plans or our wisdom is useful to the kingdom of God, because our
thoughts our plans and everything about us is worldly. The flesh I
cannot please God, as Jesus said:"The flesh is worthless."
We must submit ourselves to Jesus and allow Him to crush us, to make
us, to mold us, and to teach us, so that we will be in perfect
obedience to Him and His discipline, the guidance of His Holy Spirit;
so that we can do His will.
We cannot bear fruit if we
are not grafted into the Vine. We cannot bear fruit for the kingdom
of God and bring glory to Jesus, if we do not follow and obey Him and
do what He commands. Our words, our thoughts, our plans, our
initiatives, cannot please Jesus, because His thoughts, His mind, His
plans are higher than our thoughts. That is why we must forsake our
self, and we must submit our self to Jesus, allow ourselves to be
transformed into useful instruments. We must have the mind of Christ,
and be led by the Holy Spirit of Christ, to be useful for the kingdom
of God, and to bear fruit for the kingdom of God so that Jesus can be
Most believers are not
willing to submit themselves to Jesus so that He can crush them, and
make them mold them, and use them, and therefore they become
worthless for the kingdom of God; they get cut off and burned and
they end up in damnation with the children of disobedience. To follow
Jesus means for us to willfully submit ourselves to His discipline,
so that He can use us for His glory.
Very few people understand
this, because many believe that Jesus came to glorify them. We are
here to glorify Him, to bring glory to Him, because He is the Lord of
glory. We have to submit ourselves to Jesus and totally lose our self
in Him, to become part of his kingdom, so that He can receive the
glory and the praise that is due to Him.
Jesus Christ alone is
worthy. Worship and serve Him in utter holiness and obedience. Submit
to Jesus and let Him use you for His kingdom or else you will not
enter. You will not be part of His kingdom, you will be cast out,
shown away, and doomed to destruction. Submit to Jesus and follow
Him, become part of His kingdom.
Most Christian believers never become mature children of God. A mature
born again child of God is led by the Spirit if God, he follows Jesus
Christ. He knows the Master's voice and he bears fruit for the kingdom
of God. He bears fruit because he is led by the Spirit and he is IN
Christ, he does what the Holy Spirit guides him into doing.
Most Christian believers never grow to that maturity. The majority of
them die as spiritual babes. Many think that they have salvation because
they just believe in Jesus Christ, but they do not realize that Jesus
will say to them one day:"Go away I never knew you, you workers of
We need to have a real relationship with Jesus Christ, the living God.
We must bear fruit for the kingdom of God, and we can only do that if we
have received and are led by the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ.
Without Jesus Christ we can do nothing. Most believers are busy with
dead religious practices. Others occupy themselves with Bible study, and
many run after other people. They run after preachers, they look for
the fellowship of other believers, other Christians, but they have no
fellowship with Jesus.
We can only know Jesus for real, follow Him, and do what is pleasing to
Him if we are close to Him, if we hear His voice, if we know Him for
Most believers never reach that maturity. They never get that close to
Jesus. They never take the time and the effort to truly seek Jesus with
all their heart, so that they can hear from Him, learn from Him, be led
by Him and receive revelation from Him.
Are we following Jesus? Do we truly know Him? Have we come to spiritual
maturity, where we know Jesus and nothing deters us, nothing prevents us
from following Jesus? Is our trust in Him? Are we so sure of our
relationship with Jesus that nothing moves us from following Him,
obeying Him and doing His will?
We have to grow to maturity to be able to bear fruit for the kingdom of
God. It is only through our relationship with Jesus, our obedience to
Him, being led by His Holy Spirit and doing His will, that we can be
pleasing to Him.
Have we become spiritually mature? Are we striving and seeking? Do we
really want to get into that close relationship with Jesus, or do we not
care enough about Jesus and the kingdom of God? Because, if we are not
serious about Jesus then we will have no place in His kingdom.
We must grow to spiritual maturity, as children of God, so that we can
work for the kingdom and inherit the kingdom of God that is promised to
those who love and obey Jesus Christ.
May Jesus bless you.
Those who believe in Jesus Christ are called to obey, and follow Him, to serve Him as Lord and to work for the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ will reward everyone according to their deeds.
Many believers refuse to work for the kingdom of God because they say that they do not work for their salvation. We work for the kingdom of God if we have become part of the kingdom of God.
If we follow Jesus Christ, then we work for His kingdom and our inheritance, our reward is with Him. Many work for churches and they think that they are working for God, they are not. They are working for the organization, and they receive their rewards. They will have no reward with Jesus.
We have to follow and obey Jesus and be led by the Holy Spirit. Without Jesus we can do nothing. If we are not willing to work for the kingdom of God, we will have no inheritance. Those who refuse to work for the kingdom of God, will not have eternal life because they do not belong to Jesus, they do not belong to His kingdom
Are we working for Jesus? Are we in service of the Master and are we serious about the kingdom of God?
May Jesus bless you.
A born again child of God speaks and testifies of different things than a religious believer, because a born again child of God can see the kingdom of god. His faith is not based on hear say, on what he has read in the Bible, his faith is based on what has been revealed to him. He has seen the kingdom of God.
We read in John 3:3 Jesus said: “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Many believers are not born again and they do nto have the Holy Spirit and that is why they cannot see nor understand the kingdom of God. The mysteries of the kingdom of heaven are closed to them, because they are not born again, they do not have the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ promised the Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth and to reveal to us the mysteries of the kingdom of God.
We read the words of Jesus in John 16:7. He said to His disciples:7“But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.8“And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment; 9concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me;10and concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me; 11and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.
12“I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.13“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14“He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. 15“All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you."
The Holy Spirit was given on the day of Pentecost and all the disciples of Jesus received the baptism in the Holy Spirit as we read in Acts 2. Also there was another man that was called by Jesus, and He also received the Holy Spirit and he received the gospel through revelation. He received revelation of the kingdom of God through the Holy Spirit, which He writes of in 1 Corinthians 2:1 "And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. 2For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 3I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, 4and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.
6Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; 7but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; 8the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;
9but just as it is written, “THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”
10For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 11For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts
of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, 13which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.
14But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. 15But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. 16For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But we have the mind of Christ."
Those who have received the Holy Spirit have the mind of Christ, because the Holy Spirit reveals to them the mind of Christ, reveals to them the mysteries of the kingdom of God, things not written in the Bible, things that other people cannot tell you about, things that only the Holy Spirit can reveal to you IF you are born again, if you have received the Holy Spirit, and most importantly, if you are in tune with the Holy Spirit.
Many believers have believed the gospel of Jesus Christ. They have repented and been baptized in water and they received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, the indwelling Spirit of Christ in them, but these people are not tuned in. They are not following the guidance of the Holy Spirit, they are not taught by the Holy Spirit and therefor they do not receive revelation of the kingdom of God and of the mysteries of God through the Spirit, they are not tuned in.
If we are not tuned in to the Holy Spirit, we will not receive revelation from the Holy Spirit. We need to tune in through prayer, through waiting on Him , through seeking Him and then He will reveal Himself to us. If we have no desire for the kingdom of God and we do not seek the kingdom of God, we will receive nothing. We must tune in, we must strive hard. We must seek the revelation of the Holy Spirit. we must ask Jesus and He, the Spirit of Christ, will reveal to us the mysteries of Christ.
Are you tuned in to the Holy Spirit? Are you receiving revelation of the mysteries of the kingdom of God. are you being led by the Spirit of God, by the Holy Spirit?
A born again child of God
will go on many missions because Jesus Christ called us so that He
can send us and use us for His kingdom. Jesus said to Nicodemus that
a person who is born of the Spirit of God is like the wind, you don't
know where he's coming from you don't know where he's going. That
person himself does not even know where he is going next because he
is led by the Spirit of God. That is why Jesus calls us to
discipleship, and we have to be willing to give up everything, to
leave everything behind, in order to follow Jesus and to complete the
mission on which He sends us.
If we follow Jesus Christ
and we serve Him as Master, if we are His true disciples, then He
will send us on many missions, short missions, long missions. He will
teach us, He will guide us and He will use us for His kingdom. He
might tell us to go and see a certain person, to deliver a message,
to go and pray for a specific person, to send somebody money, to
encourage someone, to go and witness to a specific person. He might
tell us to go to a different country, give up everything and go where
He sends us, but we must be led by the Holy Spirit. We must know the
Master's voice. We must follow and obey Him and we must be willing to
go where He sends us. We must obey Him or else we cannot do what He
tells us to do, what He commands us to do, what He sends us to do.
If you read the book of
Acts you will see that the Holy Spirit sent the disciples to various
places, and they were not always received very well. Many of them
were persecuted, they were killed, but they went because they obeyed
the guidance of the Holy Spirit. If we follow Jesus and we serve Him,
if we are truly His followers and His disciples, we will be like the
wind. We will be used sent, guided, by the Holy Spirit. He will use
us for His kingdom, but we have to be willing. We have to be
available, we must obey and if we don't do it we are useless for the
kingdom of God. We must make ourselves available to Jesus, not to a
church or an organization, because then you are working for the
church, you're working for the organization. You might be working for
yourself, you might be on your own mission. If we are not led by the
Holy Spirit, we will stand before Jesus and He will tell us that we
were busy with dead works.
We can only do the will of
God, we can only serve Jesus Christ, if we remain in Him, if we are
led by the Holy Spirit, and we can only be led by the Holy Spirit if
we obey Jesus Christ. We must turn away from sin from our own ways,
our own desires and ambitions, and our ambition must be to follow
Jesus Christ, to serve the kingdom of God and we must keep our eye on
Jesus, stay faithful to Him, serve Him. Be available to him and go
when He sends us, when he tells us to do something. That is how we
serve the body of Christ by listening to the Head, Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the head of the body and every individual live member
takes his instructions from the Head, not from other people, not
from each other each, and every disciple must seek the approval and
the guidance of Jesus Christ Himself. If we start looking for the
approval of other people and their acceptance then we are not seeking
the approval of Jesus Christ.
We are called to serve
Him, to bear fruit for His kingdom, but we have to be ready,
available and willing to go on every mission that He sends us. Are we
available for Jesus? Are we ready to go on the mission that He is
calling us to do today?
You must follow and obey
Jesus Christ to have salvation, not just believe in Him as so many
people wrongly believe. Faith without works is dead. If we confess
that we believe in Jesus but we do not follow nor obey Him, then our
faith cannot save us.
Jesus Christ is the way
and the truth and the life and we have to follow Him to have eternal
life. We cannot follow Jesus unless we turn from our own ways and go
after Him. We cannot follow Him if we do not know Him. We cannot
follow Him if we do not hear His voice. If we believe in Jesus we
will obey His commands, we will repent of going after our own ways,
we will repent of sin and we will go after Jesus, and we will obey
His commands; repent and be baptized and Jesus promised to give His
Holy Spirit in those who obey Him, who repent and who are baptized
and the Holy Spirit the Spirit of Christ in us will guide us into all
truth. We cannot follow Jesus unless we have the Holy Spirit. We
cannot be pleasing to Jesus unless we follow the guidance of the Holy
You need to repent and be
baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit before you can follow Jesus
Christ. Many believe that they are saved just because they believe in
Jesus, but they are deceived. They do not know Him. How can they
follow Him? Have you repented and been baptized in water and have you
received the Holy Spirit? Do you know the Master's voice? Do you
follow and do you obey Him, or do you just believe that you are
saved? Because, if you don't know Jesus He will say to you:"Go
away, I never knew you." We need to follow and obey Jesus Christ
and stay with Him until the very end to have eternal life.
Each and every one of us
must work out our own salvation. Our salvation depends on our
relationship with Jesus Christ. Our salvation does not depend on what
we believe or just whom we believe in, but if we believe that Jesus
Christ is Lord and that He is the final authority, that He will
decide who will go into heaven and who will go into hell then, we
have to take Him seriously.
We have to obey Him and we
have to make sure that He is pleased with us. Many people think that
they only need to believe in Jesus for salvation, but if we do not
know Him, follow Him and obey Him then we will not enter His kingdom.
Nobody else can work on your relationship with Jesus for you. You
need to work on your own relationship with Jesus and make sure that
He is pleased with you. Jesus said that if we obey His words, His
commands, if we repent and are baptized in water, and live according
to His teachings then He will reveal Himself to us. He will give his
Holy Spirit in us to teach and guide us. He will come and dwell in us
and He will be with us until the very end, but we have to stay with
Him. We have to go after Him. If we leave Him then we will go stray.
He will not hold us back, but we have to go after Him and seek His
approval. We must make sure that we are pleasing to Jesus.
We have to work out our
own salvation with fear and trembling. We have to make sure that our
relationship with Jesus is right, every day until the very end. Many
believe they are saved but they do not know Jesus, they do not obey
Him, they have not received His Holy Spirit, they do not know His
voice and they do not follow Him. Many of them are preachers,
believers, people who know the Bible well, religious people, but
they do not know Jesus and they do not follow Him. They are
practicing religion and when they die they will stand before Jesus
and He will say to them:"Go away, I never knew you, you workers
The only way that we can
be pleasing to Jesus is if we follow Him, if we hear His voice and
listen to him and if we receive confirmation from Him that he is
pleased with us. Work out your own relationship with Jesus. Do not
trust anybody else, because nobody else can work on your relationship
with Jesus. It is your own responsibility. Your relationship with
Jesus will determine where you spend eternity, in heaven or in hell.
Is Jesus pleased with you. Are you living in close relationship with
Jesus and doing what is pleasing to Him.
Jesus is alive and He
answers the prayers of those that cry out to Him in their distress.
Many times in my life the Lord has answered my prayer when I was in
deep trouble. Countless times I called out to Jesus when I was in
fear of death or in sickness or in an accident.
At one time I was
traveling in a remote area with my family, towing a camping trailer
with my truck and the front wheel of the truck burst. I just
said:"Lord help!" and the next thing the truck left the
road, it jackknifed and rolled. Both the truck and the camper were
totally destroyed . We were six souls in that truck and we crawled
out of the truck hardly scathed, just a few scratches and bruises.
The people that drove behind us and saw the accident happening were
looking for dead bodies. There were none. We were all alive. Jesus
kept us I just cried out to Him and said:"Lord help!" He
helped and He kept us alive.
I was once poisoned.
Somebody put poison in my coffee and I cried out to Jesus and He kept
me alive. The next day when I got to work and that person who had
poisoned me saw me alive he ran away. He couldn't believe that I was
I was a pilot. I flew my
own aircraft and many times Jesus kept me alive in terrible weather
conditions. I recall one day I was flying and the weather closed in
on me. The next thing I was right in the middle of a thunderstorm,
with lightning striking all around me. It was pitch dark and I cried
out to the Lord, and the next thing a small path opened, and I could
fly along that path out of the storm to safety.
Almost twenty years ago I
had a heart attack and I died. I left my body and I was going down a
deep black hole, I was on my way to hell, but I cried out to Jesus
and He allowed me to come back to come and testify to the whole world
that Jesus Christ is alive.
Many times I was in severe
trouble, sometimes of my own making, but I cried out to the Lord and
He delivered me. Jesus is alive. He is God and He cares for us. He is
compassionate and He answers the prayers of those who call out to
Him, and therefore I'm here today to bring glory and thanks to Jesus,
and to encourage you to cry out to Jesus because he will answer you.
He will deliver you but you must give Him thanks, glory and honor.
Our God is an awesome God! Jesus Christ is Lord. He is alive. He is
Almighty and He saves those who cry out to Him. Cry out to Jesus, He
will answer you and He will deliver you.
Only Jesus Christ can give
us eternal life. Only Jesus Christ can guide us into all truth, but
we have to go to Him. We have to ask Him, we have to seek Him and we
have to follow Him. Most believers do not go to Jesus when they are
in trouble, when they're looking for solutions. Many of them go to
their Bible. They seek solutions in the scriptures. Others run to
other people, but they don't go to Jesus and that is why they do not
Believers want other
believers to pray for them, they want other believers to ask God for
them, but they themselves don't go to Jesus. Jesus Christ is the only
one who can help us, but if we don't go to Him we will not receive,
and that is why believers perish. They don't go to Jesus. They don't
follow Jesus, they don't obey Jesus, and therefore they do not have
the confidence to go to Him in prayer. They do not really believe.
Jesus Christ alone is the
way and the truth and the life. He is the one that gives life to
everything, but if we don't go to him and if we don't stay with Him,
we will not have life. Are you following Jesus? Are you with Jesus?
Do you go to Jesus with everything? Do you have life? Do you have
Many Christian believers
are looking for gifts from God. They want security of salvation.
Others want the baptism in the Holy Spirit, they want to be able to
speak in tongues. Others want the gifts of healing and other
spiritual gifts but the greatest gift of all they do not want. They
don't want Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ Himself is
the greatest gift, the Spirit of Christ living in us. Jesus said that
the one who has his commands and keeps them is the one who loves Him,
and Him and the Father will come and dwell with that person. He will
give His Spirit in them, to be with them, to teach them and to guide
The greatest gift is
Emmanuel, Christ with us, Christ in us, but believers want gifts from
God, they don't want Jesus Christ. They want to believe in Jesus for
salvation, but they are not interested in Jesus. They don't want to
hear His voice, they don't want to follow Him, they don't want to
obey Him,and therefore they perish.
Many have received gifts.
They speak in tongues, but they're also curse like sailors, they are
sinners. Many heal the sick, they preach in the streets, but they are
sinners. They've received the gift and they have deserted, gone away
from the Giver. They think that they have security in their gift but
without Jesus we have nothing. We might have His gifts, but if we
don't have Jesus we are lost and doomed. Without Jesus we can do
nothing. Without Jesus we cannot bear fruit.
Jesus said that if we do
not remain in Him and Him in us, we cannot bear fruit, but if we stay
in Him, if we obey Him, walk with Him, follow Him do His will, then
we will bear much fruit for the kingdom of God. If we don't bear
fruit, we all get cut off and burned. Many believers don't want to
bear fruit, they just want the gifts.
Do we want Jesus? Do we
have a desire for Jesus? Do we cherish His presence? Do we spend time
with Him, pray? Do we listen to His voice? Do we seek Him? Do we seek
His will? Are we serious about Jesus Christ or are we only looking
for the gifts? If we have Jesus we have everything, but without Jesus
we have nothing and we can do nothing. Do you have Jesus?
Many believers expect
Jesus Christ to take control of their lives, but that is not what
Jesus said. Jesus said:"Whoever wishes to come after Me, must
deny himself pick up his cross every day and come here follow Me."
We have to take action. We have to take control of our own lives. We
have to make up our mind to follow Jesus Christ and therefore we must
obey Him. Obey his commands; repent,turn away from sin, stop sinning,
be baptized in water, and seek Jesus for the
baptism in the Holy
We have to take action we
have to take control. We have to go after Jesus Christ, we have to
seek His approval. We have to seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit,
the indwelling Holy Spirit in us, to teach and guide us. We have to
seek to hear His voice. Jesus will not take control of us. He will
not come and change your life.You have to change your life. You have
to stop sinning, you have to change your ways, you have to go after
If we submit ourselves to Jesus and obey Him,
repent and be baptized, then He will set us free from the bondage of
sin. He will set us free from addictions so that we can follow Him,
so that we can be in control. Jesus Christ puts you in control of
your own life again, but then you must take control and go after
Jesus. Don't use that control that you've got to go back to sin, and
do wrong things.
Take control of yourself, everyday pick up your
cross follow Jesus. When you wake up in the morning or during the
night, put your mind on Jesus. Get rid of the things that distract
you, get rid of that TV. Stop watching the wrong videos, stop going
to the wrong places. Stop being worldly, stop going after worldly
friends and go after Jesus. Seek Him, seek His approval. Seek His
ways. Do what is pleasing to Him. Seek His voice. He will speak to
you, but if you don't go after Him, then you will not follow Him, you
will not hear His voice. He might speak to you, but if you don't
trust Him and if you're not committed to follow Him, you will
distrust Him and then He will stop speaking to you.
We have to take control of
our own life, of our own salvation, work out our own salvation with
fear and trembling. Don't run after other people. Don't look for
solutions other places, in the Bible or from other people. Go on your
knees and speak to Jesus. Get your mind on Jesus. Be filled with the
Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ dwelling in you. Trust Him, listen
to Him, follow Him, obey Him and He will guide you, but you will
always be in control.
You must take control of
yourself and follow Jesus Christ every day until the very end. You
must make up your mind to follow Jesus, and you must endure with him
until the very end you must pick up your cross and follow Jesus
Christ every day until the end to be saved.
This is a very important message. I do not want to miss any of it, so I wrote it down and I read it.
Every child of God must be fruitful for the kingdom of God. Jesus said
that every branch in Him that does not bear fruit will get cut off and
burned. Every newly born again believer needs to be brought up and
transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ to
be useable for the kingdom of God. That transformation is achieved
through our relationship with Jesus Christ.
We are not useable for the kingdom of God in our unchanged form, with a
worldly mindset and way of living, our self-reliance and worldly wisdom.
We need a kingdom mindset. We need to learn to think, live and act like
a child of God. We read in Romans 12:1,2.
"1Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present
your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is
your spiritual service of worship. 2And do not be conformed to this
world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,
so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and
acceptable and perfect."
We need to take on and live the Jesus way, according to His teachings
and commands, as they are also recorded in the gospels Matthew, Mark,
Luke and John. We need to be filled with the Holy Spirit and learn to
follow and obey the guidance and direction of the
The apostle Paul did not just immediately start preaching after he met
Jesus on the Damascus road. He first was taught by Jesus, through
revelation. Galatians 1:11-24"For I would have you know, brethren,
that the gospel which was preached by me is not according
to man. 12For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I
received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.
13For you have heard of my former manner of life in Judaism, how I
used to persecute the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy
it; 14and I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries
among my countrymen, being more extremely
zealous for my ancestral traditions. 15But when God, who had set me
apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was
pleased 16to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the
Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh
and blood, 17nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles
before me; but I went away to Arabia, and returned once more to
18Then three years later
I went up to Jerusalem to become acquainted with Cephas, and stayed
with him fifteen days. 19But I did not see any other of the apostles
except James, the Lord’s brother. 20(Now in what I am writing to you, I
assure you before
God that I am not lying.) 21Then I went into the regions of Syria and
Cilicia. 22I was still unknown by sight to the churches of Judea which
were in Christ; 23but only, they kept hearing, “He who once persecuted
us is now preaching the faith which he once
tried to destroy.” 24And they were glorifying God because of me."
Paul was a changed man, and you will also be different when you walk with Jesus and are taught by Him.
After repentance, water baptism and Holy Spirit baptism we need be
reshaped through our relationship with Jesus, submitting ourselves to
Him, to the working and discipline of the Holy Sprit.
We do not easily change our ways and our thinking. Often Jesus has to
discipline us in unpleasant, often brutal ways, through loss, pain and
suffering. He does it for our own good, not because He hates us. Like
clay in the hand of the potter, we need to be
crushed, milled, molded and formed to be transformed into the
instrument that Jesus wants to make out of us, to be used for His
kingdom and His glory. We must submit to Him, yield, trust and obey,
even when we suffer.
Jesus Himself, when in the form of a man, learned obedience through
suffering. In Hebrews 5:8 we read:"Although He was a Son, He learned
obedience from the things which He suffered. 9And having been made
perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source
of eternal salvation."
The process never stops, because Jesus is working perfection in those
who follow Him, and who stay with Him. John 15:1 Jesus said: I am the
true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2“Every branch in Me that
does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every
branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.
3“You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
4“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself
unless it abides in the vine, so neither can
you unless you abide in Me. 5“I am the vine, you are the branches; he
who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me
you can do nothing. 6“If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away
as a branch and dries up; and they gather them,
and cast them into the fire and they are burned. 7“If you abide in Me,
and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done
for you. 8“My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and
so prove to be My disciples.”
All the servants of God, disciples of Jesus, are transformed, changed
people. They are not like the world. They are not sinners, they are
saints. They are not just believers, they are followers of Jesus,
disciples and servants of the kingdom of God.
We will only be useable and suitable for the kingdom of God as long as
we keep on bearing fruit. We can only bear fruit if we remain yielded to
Jesus, to be broken, molded and transformed to be used by Him. Psalm
92:14 “They will still yield fruit in old age;
They shall be full of sap and very green,”
Those who refuse to submit to Jesus to be transformed and used by Him,
will be cut off and burned. They will not enter His kingdom.
Do not believe the false gospel, that you only need to believe in Jesus
to be saved and be part of His kingdom. Become a disciple and follow
Jesus all the way. There is only one way to have eternal life: Obey
Jesus Christ and follow Him all the way, until the
The words of Jesus are not
nice, and that is why the world rejects Jesus. That is why people do
not want to follow Jesus. The words of Jesus pierce us, they cut us
to pieces. Jesus guides His sheep, they listen to Him and they follow
Him but His words to them are not always nice.
The words of Jesus bring
us into the right relationship with Him, they make us humble and they
bring us into the fear of God. Most Christian believers do not know
Jesus and therefore they do not know His words. They do not recognize
when He is speaking to them. They want Jesus to speak to them but
they expect Him to be nice with them, to tell them nice things about
themselves. They have the wrong expectation. The words of Jesus
purify us, cleanse us, correct us, discipline us.
The discipline of Jesus is
firm. The guidance of the Holy Spirit is exact. When Jesus speaks to
us then we shrivel and we come under the fear of God, we realize own
insignificance and His holiness, we realize that He is Lord and that
we have to serve Him. We have to follow him His way. When Jesus
disciplines us, when He puts sickness onto us, we cannot a shrug off
His hand and say:" I did not feel it." If Jesus puts you
into a sickbed to speak to you, you can run to the doctor, you can
take medication; it will not help, because when Jesus speaks to you
you will hear, because you cannot shrug off the hand, and the
discipline of Jesus Christ. He makes sure that He gets your
The guidance of the Holy
Spirit is exact, because Jesus requires obedience of us, utter
obedience. We have to do exactly what He tells us to do. We cannot
follow our own mind. If we follow Jesus we must submit ourselves to
His guidance and to His discipline. We must fear Him and we must
respect Him, and when He speaks to us we must humble ourselves and
submit to Him, because He is God, He is Lord. Our God is a consuming
fire and those who walk with Him walk with fire, they fear Him they
respect Him and they love Him.
The kingdom of God is not
about your feelings or your image, it is about Jesus Christ. It is
about dying to self and living for Jesus. It is about obedience and
the fear of God, to serve Him with awe and reverence, because He is
an awesome God. Most believers do not recognize when Jesus is
speaking to them because they do not expect Him to speak to them
harshly, they say it's the devil, but they do not recognize Him
because they do not know Him.
When we follow Jesus, we
live and walk under the fear of God, and we subject ourselves to the
discipline of the Holy Spirit, we serve Him as Lord and Master.
Jesus Christ will never
leave us and He will never forsake us. He will always be there with
us, but we have to stay with Him until the very end. We have to guard
our walk with Him. If we stray from Jesus, if we leave Him, He will
not hold us back. He will call us back.
If we stray He might
discipline us, put circumstances in our way to turn us from our
wicked ways, to turn us back to Him. Many believers do not recognize
the hand of God when He disciplines them. They become hardened of
heart through the deceitfulness of their sin, because they went their
own way. The Holy Spirit will call us back, convict us to change our
ways, but He will never force us.
Our relationship with
Jesus, our walk with Him, is our responsibility. The quality of our
walk with Him depends entirely on us, because Jesus is faithful, but
if we are unfaithful we will lose Him, we will lose eternal life. We
have to guard our walk with Him and make sure that we are doing what
is pleasing to Him. We must make sure that we obey His commands, that
which He taught, that which He commanded as also recorded in the
Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
We must seek Him. We must
seek His voice, His Spirit, His guidance. If we seek Him, we find
Him; if we draw closer to Him, He draws closer to us. If we ask Him
He will speak to us. He will guide us, He will teach us, but if we
turn away from Him, if we stray from Him, we will perish, if we do
not repent. We have to guard our walk with Jesus. We have to make
ourselves available to Him. We have to seek His guidance, we have to
seek to be pleasing to Him, because if we don't we are not worthy of
Him. If we do not guard our walk we will go stray and we will end up
Our relationship and our
walk with Jesus depends entirely on us. If we are not willing He will
not force us. If we don't want to follow Him He will not force us. He
loves us, He cares for us, but He will never force us. If we don't
love Him and if we don't care for Him and we don't care for our
relationship with Him, our walk with Him, then we will not enter His
kingdom. We need to seek to hear His voice. We need to seek to be
guided by him. We need to seek His kingdom and His righteousness. We
need to seek Jesus Himself. If we don't, in the end we will only have
ourselves to blame when He turns us away, and He says to us:"Go
away, I never knew you, you workers of wickedness." We need to
cleanse our lives, repent, be baptized in water, seek the baptism in
the Holy Spirit, seek to hear His voice every day. If we don't, we
will stray from Him. It depends entirely on us where we will end up.
Jesus is willing and He is eager to save us, but if we don't want to
be saved, if we don't want to walk with Him and follow Him, in the
end He will deliver us to our desires. If we love other things more
than Him, then we will end up where those other things take us.
How is our walk with
Jesus? Are we close to Him? Do we seek to obey Him? Do we seek to
hear His voice? Are we serious about the kingdom of God? Are we
seeking revelation from Him, or don't we care? Is it not a priority
in our lives. If it's not a priority then, we're not worthy of Jesus.
If we are lukewarm, He will spew us out" We have to serve Jesus
and follow Him, go after Him with all our heart, with everything that
is in us. Not many are being saved. Jesus said:"Strive hard,
because Strait is the gate and narrow is the door and few there be
that find it ." Very few want to walk with Jesus. Very few guard
their walk with Jesus. Are we serious with Jesus? Do we really love
Him and do we really want to enter His kingdom?
Jesus Christ is not
impressed with religion. Jesus said:"Why do you call Me Lord,
Lord and do not what I say?" What did Jesus say? He said:"Come
here, follow Me. He is calling us to follow Him, to be in close
relationship with Him, Him with us, guiding us, teaching us, coaching
us, every day of our lives. He calls us to be one with Him, not to
Jesus calls us to turn
away from running after our own desires, and after our own plans,
after the pleasures of sin, and come to Him, to be with Him, to
become part of His kingdom. He wants to come and dwell with us, give
His Spirit in us, so that we can be with Him, all the time, forever,
Religion is just a show.
It's just a book of rules, it does not bring you closer to Jesus.
Jesus is calling us. He says:"Come here, follow Me, obey Me,
repent, turn away from your sin, cleanse your life, be baptized in
water for the washing off of your sin, come and walk with Me,"
and He will give His Spirit in us, His Spirit; to dwell with us, to
be with us, all the time. But people do not know that. They think
that they will have eternal life through religion, through going to
church, reading the Bible, talking about Jesus, religious practices,
but that does not bring us closer to Jesus.
Jesus said He will say to
many religious people:"Go away, I never knew you," because
they never came to Him. They never followed Him. They practiced
religion. Jesus calls us to come to Him, to come and be with Him, not
just to pray and then to walk away, but to be united with Him, to be
in constant relationship, constant companionship, with Him, to share
our thoughts with Him, His Spirit with our spirit, in unity with Him,
in fellowship with Him. He calls us to walk with Him.
Have you understood the
message of Jesus Christ? He says:"Come here, follow Me."
Have you turned away from running after your own desires and your own
plans, and the pleasures of sin? Have you turned to Jesus? Have you
come to Jesus and received His Spirit? Are you walking with Him? Do
you know Him? Does He teach you? Does he guide you? Those who are
being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God. If we
do not have the Spirit of Christ, then we don't belong to Him. If we
are not in close communion relationship with Jesus all the time, then
we do not know Him and we cannot follow Him.
Jesus is calling you and
me to follow Him, not to religion, but to Himself, to become one with
Him, one spirit, to become part of His kingdom. Will you answer to
the call? Will you follow Jesus?
There are no restrictions
for anybody to become a disciple of Jesus Christ and to be used by
Him in a mighty way. Nothing can prevent you from being used by Jesus
in a mighty way. The only thing that can prevent you is your own
Jesus invites everybody to
follow Him, to become part of His kingdom. He has a plan and a
purpose for everyone, for every disciple, for everyone who becomes
part of His kingdom, but there is one requirement, and that is, we
must be willing. We must totally submit to Jesus, obey Him, follow
Him, trust Him, and He will use us in a mighty way.
Jesus uses those who are
willing to abandon everything, to abandon their own wisdom, our own
abilities, their own mind, their own desires, and subject everything
to Him, to His lordship; to serve Him as Lord and Master. That is the
only way to be pleasing to Jesus. That is the only way to enter His
kingdom, is to totally submit to Him, to trust Him, to abandon
ourselves and thrust ourselves onto Him, and He can use us for His
There will not be any
excuses for anybody for not following Jesus Christ. They will only
have themselves to blame, but we have to go with Him all the way,
until the very end. We have to obey Him, submit to Him, follow Him,
trust Him and stay with Him until the very end.
Are you willing to follow
Jesus Christ? Are you willing to become part of His kingdom, to serve
Him and be used by Him? If you are not willing, you are not worthy of
Jesus. Jesus Christ. is the only way to eternal life, but we have to
obey Him, and serve Him as Lord and Master.
You don't need a Bible to
follow Jesus Christ. Many believers will immediately attack me now
and say that I'm against the Bible, that's not true. Most believers
do not follow Jesus Christ. They have Bibles but they do not obey
Jesus Christ. They are not His followers. They are just believers.
They believe that they have salvation because they believe in Jesus
Christ, but they do not have salvation because you cannot have
salvation if you do not have Jesus, and if you do not follow Him.
You cannot follow Jesus
Christ if you do not have the Holy Spirit. The Bible says, Romans
8:14, "those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are
the children of God, they are the sons of God." You need the
Holy Spirit to follow Jesus Christ.
Most believers do not want
to follow Jesus. They believe that they are already saved because
they just believe in Him for salvation, but they are deceived. Jesus
Christ is the way and the truth and the life, and we need to follow
Him to have eternal life. We need to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ,
as recorded in your Bible, in the Gospels Matthew Mark Luke and John,
you need to repent and be baptized in water, turn from sin, and from
your own ways, and follow Jesus. Seek Him with all your heart. He
will give His Spirit in you to teach and guide you. He will baptize
you in the Holy Spirit .
None of the disciples had
Bibles. None of the first followers of Jesus Christ had Bibles, but
they had the Holy Spirit, because they obeyed the gospel of Jesus
Christ. We read in Acts 2:38 On the day of Pentecost Peter said to
the people" repent and be baptized and you will receive the gift
of the Holy Spirit, that is promised to you and to your children and
to all those whom the Lord our God will call unto Himself. Without
the Holy Spirit we cannot follow Jesus Christ. You might have a
Bible. You might know the scriptures, you might know the Bible very
well, but that is of no benefit if you are not following Jesus. That
is of no benefit if you do not have the Holy Spirit. You cannot
follow Jesus Christ if you do not have the Holy Spirit and you only
receive the Holy Spirit when you obey Him ,when you obey the gospel;
repent and be baptized and then He promised to give the Holy Spirit
in you, to teach you and to guide you, to be with you, until the very
end. Without the Holy Spirit you cannot follow Jesus Christ.
Have you received
the Holy Spirit that Jesus Christ promised to those who obey Him and
are you following the guidance of the Holy Spirit every day? Those
who do not have the Spirit of Christ do not belong to Him. Do you
have the the Holy Spirit?
Jesus Christ commanded His
disciples to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey all that Jesus commanded them. Jesus
requires His followers to be disciples. What is wrong with the world
today is that Christians are converts, proselytes, they are not
disciples of Jesus Christ and this is what Jesus said to the
I read from a Matthew
23:15 "Woe to you,, scribes and Pharisees hypocrites because you
travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte and when he
becomes one you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves."
What is wrong with a Christian world today is that it is full of
converts, proselytes, believers; they believe in Jesus Christ, they
believe in the Bible, they have converted to Christianity, but they
have not become disciples of Jesus Christ. They are not born again
and they are not children of God. They are sons of hell. A disciple
is a born again a child of God, a person who is born of water and of
the Spirit of God, a person that knows and follows Jesus Christ, His
sheep that listen to His voice and who follow Him. They do not just
believe in Him, but they know Him. They serve Him and they follow
Those who just believe in
Jesus Christ will not be saved, it is those who follow and obey Him
that will have eternal life. Jesus called disciples not converts and
proselytes, not Christians by name, because that means nothing. By
their works you can know what they are, by their fruit you will know
them, they are sinners they are not children of God. If a person
follows Jesus Chris, if he has become a disciple of Jesus then he
does not sin. He follows and obeys Jesus Christ, he is a child of
Are you a disciple of
Jesus Christ, or do you just believe in Jesus for salvation? Because
if you do not follow and obey Him, if you are not a disciple then you
are none of Him, and He will say to you:"Go away I never knew
you you worker of iniquity."
There is much confusion
among Christian believers whether they should obey the Ten
Commandment, the law of Moses, when they come to faith in Jesus
Christ. Salvation is through obedience to the gospel of Jesus Christ,
not through keeping, observing, the law of Moses or the Ten
Commandments. You need to be born again to enter the kingdom of God.
Jesus said that unless a
man is born of water and of the Spirit of God he cannot enter the
kingdom of God. Jesus Christ came to take away the sins of the world
and He takes away the sin of those who obey Him, who obey His gospel.
The commands of Jesus
Christ are different from the Ten Commandments or the law of Moses.
Jesus Christ commands us to repent of all sin, to turn to Him and to
be baptized in water, to be filled with a Holy Spirit so that we can
come into communion with Him.
We must be born again born
of water, through baptism, and born of the Spirit of God that comes
and dwells in us and guides and teaches us. If you decide to stop
sinning and then observe the 10 commandments it cannot save you. The
law of Moses required a blood sacrifice for the forgiveness of sin,
for the blotting out of sin. Jesus Christ came and He Himself became
the perfect sacrifice. He took on Himself the sin of the world, to
take away the guilt of sin for those who obey Him, who accept Him and
who serve Him, those who obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Salvation
is through Jesus Christ alone, not through keeping the commandments.
We cannot have salvation
without Jesus Christ, but if we follow Jesus we must turn away from
all unrighteousness and bear good fruit. Sin separates us from Jesus.
Even the slightest disobedience separates us from Him. He does not
tolerate disobedience but He does not require us to keep the law of
Moses. He requires of us to obey His commands, to repent and be
baptized as He commanded His disciples. He said: Go into all the
world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name
of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey
all that I commanded you."
Salvation is through
obedience to Jesus Christ, and when we obey the gospel of Jesus
Christ, His Words, if we repent and turn to Jesus and we are baptized
in water for the washing off of our sin, and we embrace Jesus with
all our heart, we obey His commandments, then he gives His Holy
Spirit in us, to come and dwell with us. We come into communion with
Jesus Christ, we are led by the Holy Spirit, we follow and obey Jesus
Without Jesus we can do
nothing. You cannot save yourself by obeying the 10 commandments.
Only Jesus can save us, but we have to obey Him. We have to be led by
the Holy Spirit. We have to be in close relationship with Jesus. His
sheep hear His voice, they listen to Him and they follow Him. The
unbeliever, those who are not born again of the Spirit of God, do not
hear the voice of God, and many who are born again have not been
taught to listen to Jesus, and that is why they do not follow Him.
That is why they do not know Him. We have to be led by the Holy
Spirit. His sheep hear His voice. They listen to Him and they follow
Him. It is not just a matter of living holy, righteous and without
sin, it is about living in obedience to Jesus Christ.
Jesus said:"if you do
not remain in Me you cannot bear fruit." If we are not led by
the Holy Spirit and we do not serve and follow Jesus under the
guidance of His Spirit, we cannot be pleasing to Him. It is all about
our relationship with Jesus Christ. If we follow Jesus we will not
sin, because there is no sin in Him and he will not guide us into
sin. We do not become Jews and we do not take on the law of Moses
when we believe in Jesus Christ. We accept Jesus, we embrace Him, we
follow and obey Him, and He saves those who submit themselves to Him;
who accept Him as their Lord and Master.
There is no other way to
have salvation. There is no other way to enter the kingdom of heaven,
but through Jesus Christ, the Living Way. He is the way and the truth
and the life. He is alive, but you have to obey Him to get to know
Him. You have to obey His words, turn from sin, turn from a going
after your own desires. Turn to Jesus, repent and be baptized in
water, as He commanded. Seek Him with all your heart and He will give
His Spirit in you to teach you and guide you. You will experience
Jesus Christ for real, and you will know Him. You will see His
kingdom. He will teach and guide you in all things but, you have to
stay with Him until the very end to enter His kingdom. There is only
one way to have eternal life and that is Jesus Christ. Obey the
gospel of Jesus Christ. Seek Him with all your heart and you will
find Him. Stay with Him until the very end, and you will have life.
Jesus Christ alone is the
way and the truth and the life, there is no other. The words of Jesus
are the words of eternal life for those who accept them and who obey
them. Those who disobey Jesus Christ will perish. The only way to
have eternal life is to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, the words of
The Holy Spirit will also
remind us of the words of Jesus. The words of Jesus are Spirit and
life, and they give life to those who obey them, but those who
disobey the words of Jesus will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Never compromise the words of Jesus for the teachings and the words
of others. Many believers think that they have eternal life in
quoting other scriptures, the words of Paul and the words of some
other people, some doctrines and teachings of people.
The only words that can
save are the words of Jesus. Always go back to the words of Jesus.
Always test everything against: What did Jesus say? When we stand
before Him He will say: Why did you not obey Me? Jesus said:"Why
do you call me Lord, Lord and you do not what I say?" We are
called to follow and obey Jesus Christ, to obey His words as they are
also recorded in the Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
The Holy Spirit will
always remind us of the words of Jesus, to obey them, to keep them,
to observe them. The Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth. The
Holy Spirit will always guide us back to the truth, and that truth
Jesus Christ. His words are the words of life. Obey and follow Jesus.
Do not compromise Jesus. Do not compromise the words of Jesus. Obey
Jesus Christ and you will live.
The world does not know
who Jesus Christ really is, and sadly most professing Christians also
do not know who Jesus is. Jesus is the final authority. He is Lord.
He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is the beginning
and He is the end. He is the Creator of all things. He made all
things and He holds all things together by His power. Without Jesus
we can do nothing, but the world does not believe that, because they
do not know Jesus Christ.
When Jesus Christ walked
this earth the religious people also rejected Him. As He said to the
Pharisees, the religious people of the time, who were expecting
Messiah, He said to them: "You diligently search the Scriptures,
in there to find eternal life, but you refuse to come to Me to have
life." Jesus Christ is the only one who can give eternal life.
He is the only one who will decide who will go into heaven and who
will go into hell. Those who disregard Him, who reject Him and who
refuse Him will perish. Many of them will be Christians. He will say
to many believers in that day that they die, that they stand before
Him in judgment, He will say to them:"Go away, I never knew you,
you workers of iniquity." Many of them will profess to be
Christians. They will say that they believed in Jesus for salvation,
but they never knew Him, they never obeyed Him and never followed
Him. They never regarded Him as Whom He is. They did not know that
Jesus Christ is God. He is the final authority.
Every knee will bow, every
tongue will confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord; even those who killed
Him, who crucified Him, who rejected Him but for them it will be too
late. Do you know who Jesus is? Do you regard Him as the ultimate
authority? Do you respect Him? Do you seek His favor? Do you obey His
words? He is alive and He reveals Himself to those who seek Him, but
those who reject Him will perish. Do you know who Jesus Christ is? Do
you know Him, and more importantly does Jesus know you? Is your
relationship with Him real? Do you serve Him as Lord and Master or do
you only believe in Him for salvation? Because then your faith is in
vain. Only those who accept Him as their Lord and Master, who serve
Him as the King of kings and Lord of lords, who dedicate their lives
to Him and who obey Him, they are the only ones who will enter His
Do you know Jesus Christ?
Do you know who Jesus is and do you follow and obey Him?
Very few professing
Christians do actually know and follow Jesus Christ. The Christian
world is desperately deceived because people have been taught that as
long as they believe in Jesus Christ for salvation, that they are
Christians and that they are saved. The truth is that you need to be
born again and you need to follow and obey Jesus Christ to enter the
kingdom of heaven. Most professing Christians are not born again and
they do not know Jesus Christ. They do not follow Him and they do not
obey Him. They are just religious. Many of them occupy themselves
with religious practices, others occupy themselves with the Bible.
To be a Christian means to
know and follow Jesus Christ, the Living God, to be led by the Holy
Spirit. Most professing Christians do not have the Holy Spirit
because they are not born again, because they have never come to
obedience to Jesus Christ. If you believe in Jesus but you do not
obey Him, then your faith cannot save you. Jesus said:"Why do
you call me Lord Lord and do not what I say?" Jesus Christ will
decide who will go into heaven and who not. Those who do not know Him
and who do not follow and obey Him, are not part of His kingdom and
they will not enter. We need to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. You
need to repent of all sin, be baptized in water, seek Jesus with all
our heart and He will give His Holy Spirit in us. He will come and
dwell in us and He will guide us by His Spirit.
God is spirit and those
who are led by the Spirit of God they are the sons of God, they are
children of God. Those who just believe are only deceiving themselves
they have faith but they have nothing to back it up, because they
don't know Jesus Christ. Many will quote you Bible verses and tell
you that they belong to a church, but they are not Christians, they
are not following Jesus Christ, because they do not know Him.
Jesus Christ reveals
Himself in and to those who seek Him and who obey Him, they get to
know Him for real. They follow Him day by day. He guides them and He
teaches them. He gives them revelation, of Himself, of the kingdom of
God, and they get to know Him for real. They become part of the
kingdom of God because they do the will of God. If you have no
relationship with the Living God and if you do not follow and obey
Him then you cannot enter His kingdom. If you do not know Jesus, the
day that you die He will say to you:"Go away, I never knew you."
The Christian churches are deceived and they are deceiving people.
Believers are running after people. They are running after churches,
following the doctrines of men, practicing religion, but they are not
following Jesus Christ and therefore there are not Christians. They
are not children of God. Have you come to know Jesus Christ? Are you
a follower of Jesus? Are you a child of God? Are you part of His
kingdom or are you also deceived? Seek Jesus while you can. Seek the
truth. Jesus alone is the way and the truth and the life. He is
alive and He is real. He speaks, His sheep hear His voice and they
follow Him, they know Him for real. He gives them revelation of all
things, of the kingdom of heaven, of what God is doing on this earth;
they are not in darkness, because they know the Lord and Master. They
are true children of God. They know their Father's voice, and they
follow and obey Him. Are you a son of the King? Are you a child of
God or are you just deceiving yourself, believing that you have
salvation, but you do not know nor follow Jesus Christ?
child of God must receive their revelation from Jesus Christ, not
from other people. If God is our Father then we must hear from Him.
Jesus said:"My sheep hear My voice and they listen, they follow
Me." If Jesus Christ is our Shepherd, if he is our Lord then we
must hear His voice. Jesus said One is your teacher even the Christ
Himself. Jesus Himself will teach and guide each and every one of His
children, if they follow Him, if they listen to Him, if they are
truly born again.
Many people believe
they are born again but they do not know Jesus. They were never born
again. They never became born again children of God. They were not
born of the Spirit and of water, they just believed a lie. If we obey
the gospel of Jesus Christ, believe in Him, repent and are baptized
in water, and we obey His commands, if we live according to His
words, as also recorded in the gospel Matthew, Mark, Luke and John;
if we do those things, Jesus will reveal Himself to us. He will come
and dwell in us. He will give His Spirit in us and He will guide us.
He will teach us. We do not need any other teacher. If God is our
Father then we should know His voice. If Jesus is our Lord, then we
should be serving Him. Then we should be following Him, but most
believers do not know Jesus. Most have never met Him, and some who
have met Him, never followed Him. They followed after people. They
read the books and revelations of people. They seek eternal life in
The revelations that
are in Scripture were given to other people, but if we read those
things according to our own insight, in our own mind, we do not get a
clear picture. We need our own revelation from Jesus Christ. If we
do not go to Him, and if we do not ask Him then we will not hear from
Him, we will not learn from Him. If we keep on running after other
teachers, we will never get to know Jesus Christ, and that is the
problem with most believers. They believe they are saved but they
don't know Jesus. They do not know His voice, they do not receive
revelation from Him, because they do not seek Him, and they do not
If you are truly
born again and you are a child of God, then you will be taught by
God. You will ask Him for guidance. You will ask Him for revelation.
You will hear His voice, and you will follow Jesus Chris,t and you
will do what He commands you to do. If you are serious about
eternity, about the kingdom of God, then you will seek Jesus. You
will obey His words, you will do everything possible to be pleasing
to Him and you will hear from Him. Your revelation and your guidance
will be from Him, or else you are not a child of God, you are not one
of his sheep, you are just a deceived believer. You believe a lie,
you are not a child of God. If you are truly a born again child of
God, you will hear the voice of God. You will be led by Holy Spirit.
If you truly seek
Jesus, you will find Him. If you show Him that you are serious by
obeying Him; by repenting and being baptized in water and seeking Him
in prayer, dedicating your life to Him, living in holiness and
righteousness as He commanded, then He will reveal Himself to you. If
you seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness, you will find it,
but if you run after other teachers you will go into darkness and you
will be lost, and Jesus will say to you:"Go away, I never knew
Do you know Jesus?
Do you know His voice? Do you listen to Him? Do you follow Him? Are
you serious about your relationship with Jesus Christ? Is it real or
do you just believe that you are saved? Because then you are
deceived. Seek Jesus with all your heart and H will reveal Himself to
you. You will know Him for real and you will receive your revelation
and your guidance from Him.
Jesus Christ is the Light
of the world. In Him there is no darkness. Those who follow and obey
Him are like Him, they are the light of the world, they do not
tolerate lies, sin or unrighteousness. They keep themselves holy and
they shine as light in darkness.
If we sin we are in
darkness. Jesus said that:"If the light that is in you is
darkness, how great is not the darkness." Those who have
repented and been baptized in water and who follow Jesus Christ, do
not sin anymore. They keep themselves pure and holy, because they are
the light of the world.
If you sin you are
darkness, then you are not worthy of Jesus Christ, and you will not
enter His kingdom. You cannot be in Christ and also be in sin and in
darkness. Without holiness and no man shall see God. No sinners will
enter the kingdom of heaven.
Many believe that they are
saved but they are living in sin, and they sin every day. They are
not in Christ they are in sin they are in deception and they are on
their way to hell. If you follow Jesus Christ you will be light.
There will be no sin in you.
Jesus said that the time
has come and now is that the true worshipers will worship God in
spirit and in truth, because the Father seeks such that worship Him.
It has become fashionable
in churches to have worship teams and worship leaders, and big bands,
and they have special effects, and smoke, and they make a big noise,
but that is not the worship that is pleasing to God. What is pleasing
to God is that we worship Him in spirit and in truth, not just by
putting up a big show. We need to live our lives in such a way that
we prove that we are children of God. We need to live in obedience to
the words of Jesus Christ and prove that we are children of God, that
we are sons of God. If we do not obey Jesus then our worship is just
a noise, it is an annoyance to God. It does not bring glory to God.
If we live like the devil
we prove that we are sons of the devil. Jesus said:"If you love
Me, keep My commands." He said:"Why do you call Me Lord,
Lord, and you do not as I say." Jesus did not only give one
command. He did not just say we need to believe in Him. He gave many
commands on how we should live to be pleasing to God. We should live
our lives to please Him. We must go after Him, deny ourselves, pick
up our cross, and follow Him every day. We need to repent of all sin
and unrighteousness and live holy, be baptized in water, be filled
with a Holy Spirit and be led by the Holy Spirit, and then we will
produce good fruit. We will show by our deeds that we are children of
Jesus said that every
branch in Him that does not bear fruit will get cut off and burned.
We bring glory to God by our fruit, by doing that which Jesus guides
us into doing. Without Jesus Christ we can do nothing. God is not
impressed with a big noise and a big show. He requires of us that we
worship Him from the heart, that we live our lives to please Him that
we worship Him in spirit and in truth and that we produce fruit of
righteousness and holiness, that will be light in darkness and that
we bring others unto Him.
Are we bringing glory to
Jesus through our lives? Are we ambassadors for the kingdom of heaven
and for Christ, or are we just making a big noise. The Father seeks
those who worship Him in spirit and in truth. re we worshiping Him
and bringing Him glory through everything that we are, and that we
Sinning Christians are
under God's judgment and they will perish in hell if they do not
repent, because they are not following Jesus Christ, they are
following satan. If we follow Jesus we do not sin, we live holy and
righteously, we walk in the Light.
Jesus Christ is the Light
of the world. We read in John 3:16 "For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him,
shall not perish but have eternal life; for God did not send the Son
into the world to judge the world but that the world might be saved
through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged, but he who does
not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in
the Name of the only begotten Son of God."
Listen very carefully,
verse 19, "This is the judgment that the Light is come into the
world and men loved the darkness rather than the Light for their
deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light and does
not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed, but he
who practices the truth comes to the light so that his deeds may be
manifested as having been wrought in God." Those who sin are in
darkness, they are not following Jesus Christ. Many profess to
believe in Jesus Christ but they do not follow Him, they do not obey
If we follow Jesus Christ
we will bear fruit of righteousness, good fruit. Jesus warned that
every branch in Him that does not bear fruit will get cut off and
burned, will be thrown into the fire, into hell. Many profess to
believe in Jesus but they do not have the fruit of repentance, they
are sinners, and they will perish. They will get cut off and burned.
If we walk in the Light, then our deeds will show that they were done
in Christ because we are following Jesus Christ. If our deeds do not
show that we are children of God, if we do not bear good fruit, we
are judged already and we will get cut off and burned, if we do not
repent and bear fruit of repentance. If we follow Jesus Christ we
will not sin, we will do that which is pleasing to Him.
