Do not be deceived
Most professing Christians are deceived. They believe false teachings of men. They believe they are saved and assured of going to heaven when they die, but they do not know nor obey the truth. Most seriously, they do not know Jesus Christ, the Living God and final judge of all men.
All men will be judged by the words of Jesus, not just some of His words, but ALL His teachings and commands. Most professing Christians do not live according to the words of Jesus. The teachings and commandments of Jesus were recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
We read in John 12:47, Jesus said: "47As for anyone who hears My words and does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 48There is a judge for the one who rejects Me and does not receive My words: The word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day."
Jesus commanded His disciples:19“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; Matthew 28:19,20
Do you obey Jesus and live according to His words? Have you repented, stopped sinning, been baptized in water, as He commanded, or have you been deceived by the teachings of men? Jesus gave no guarantee of salvation to those who believe in Him. He said:"Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able."Luke 13:23. He also said:"The one who endures to the end, he will be saved."Matthew 24:13.
Are you still a sinner, or are you following Jesus in obedience to His words? Jesus said:", “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. 35“The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. 36“So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed."John 8:34-36. Are you a slave to sin, or has Jesus made you free?
Are you bearing good fruit? Jesus said:"A tree is known by it's fruit" and "19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."Matthew 7:19. Are you bearing good fruit or are you in danger of being cut down and burned?
Do not be deceived by the lies of the devil and the doctrines of men. Read the words of Jesus as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, for yourself, and make sure that you obey Jesus, or else you will not enter His kingdom, you will end up in hell.
Your salvation is your responsibility. do not take it lightly. Very few believers are being saved::"Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, will seek to enter and will not be able."
May Jesus bless you.
