Many Christians are very confident that they will go to heaven when they die, but the majority will be very disappointed when they stand before Jesus and He says to them:"Go away I never knew you, you workers of iniquity."
Our deeds will determine our destiny. It is only when we obey Jesus that we get to know Him, because then He reveals Himself to us. The only way to have salvation is to obey and follow Jesus, His words, His commands, the gospel of Jesus Christ, as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Those are the words of salvation to those who obey them. Those who disobey Jesus will perish, even if they believe in Him. Those who keep on sinning will end up in hell.
Jesus commands us to repent, turn from sin and evil, live holy and righteous, be baptized in water and follow Him. Those who do not believe and therefor do not obey Jesus, will be condemned. They will be disappointed when Jesus sends them to hell.
Many Christians have never repented, neither been baptized in water. They live in sin and sin every day without remorse. Their deeds are evil and therefor they will be disappointed when they end up in hell. They have been told that they only need to believe in Jesus to have salvation. That is a lie.
Jesus said that every branch in Him, every born again believer who has become a child of God, who does not bear good fruit, will get cut off and burned. We have to be holy, obey Jesus, sin no more, but live for Him, be light in darkness and thus bring glory to Him.
Do you know Jesus? Have you repented and stopped sinning? Have you been baptized in water? Do you obey and follow Jesus every day? Are your deeds pleasing to Jesus?
Do not be deceived. Obey Jesus and do as He commanded. Follow Him every day or else you will be disappointed.
May Jesus bless you.
