Preposterous Christians

This morning the Lord spoke to me word
that I did not understand "preposterous Christians". I had
to go and determine the meaning of the word "preposterous".
I went on google and this is what I found, among other things: silly,
stupid, completely contrary to reason or common sense, absurd,
senseless, utterly foolish. Preposterous Christians, silly, stupid,
foolish, that is what the Christendom has become.
People call themselves Christians but
they have no resemblance of Jesus Christ. They are not like Jesus
because they do not follow Him. They are like the world. The apostle
Paul wrote to the Philippians to be like Jesus. I read from
Philippians chapter 2 verse 3: "Do nothing from selfishness or
empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more
important than yourselves. Do not merely look out for your own
personal interests but also for the interests of others. Have this
attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus who although He
existed in the form of God did not regard equality with God a thing
to be grasped, but He emptied Himself, taking the form of a
bond-servant and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in
appearance as a man He humbled himself by becoming obedient to the
point of death, even death on the cross. For this reason also God
highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the Name which is above every
Name so that at the Name of Jesus, every knee will bow, of those who
are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue
will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the
Father. So then my beloved just as you have always obeyed not as in
my presence, only but now much more in my absence, work out your
salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who is at work in
you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure." Unless we
follow Jesus Christ, obey Him and become like Him we are only
fooling ourselves.
Modern-day Christians follow after the
world and the customs of the world. They are not following after
Jesus Christ. Jesus emptied Himself, He did not regard His status as
Son of God something to hold onto. He emptied Himself of His status
of that which He was, and He left the glory of heaven and He took on
the form of a man, that which we are, and not just of a man but of a
bond-servant, of a servant. He came to serve not to be served, and He
submitted himself. He obeyed the Father even to the point of death.
He did not hold on to His sonship, to his status.
Modern-day Christians want to be like
the world. They want to excel in the world. They want to compete with
the world and win in worldly matters. There is no desire to be like
Jesus. Their desire is to be worldly, to be rich, to be regarded, to
have status in this world, whereas Jesus Christ is the opposite.
Modern-day Christians are preposterous, they think that they can be
of the world and part of the world, and still go to heaven. They
believe that they are saved, but they don't know Jesus Christ. They
do not have the nature of Christ. They do not obey Him. Most of them
are not willing to work for the kingdom of God. They refuse to obey
the commands of Jesus and yet I believe they are saved. What are the
saved of? They are in sin. They are not saved of sin? They are not
saved of their worldly desires. They are as much worldly and even
more than those who do not profess to be Christians.
These people are silly, stupid,
completely contrary to reason or common sense, absurd, senseless,
utterly foolish, they are preposterous. That is what God calls them.
They will not enter the kingdom of heaven if they do not repent and
obey Jesus Christ. Are we disciples of Jesus Christ that follow and
obey Him everyday or are we also preposterous and on our way to hell?
May Jesus bless you.
