People know very well how to follow after celebrities and famous people, even if they have never met them. They know how to follow after the devil, especially when they are dissatisfied or when they are annoyed, mad. The devil plants the thoughts and the words in their mind and they just speak wicked things, they get into action and do wrong, but when you try to explain to believers how to follow Jesus, they cannot understand what you are talking about. At least that is what they say.
When you talk about following Jesus people find it abstract but they have no problem following and obeying satan. They are so filled with satan that he manifests through them. It is their choice to follow satan and do evil. The only problem is that if we keep on following satan and fulfilling our own selfish desires, we will certainly end up in hell. Many have been told that if they just believe in Jesus they will have salvation, but that is a lie.
The only way to have salvation is to obey, serve and follow Jesus Christ. You have to turn from your evil ways, stop sinning, repent, and follow after Jesus. The same as you went after your own sinful desires, lusts, ambitions and worldly pleasure, celebrities, sin and the devil, you have to go after Jesus and do what He requires of you. Instead of listening to the devil and having him as your guide and companion, you need to follow Jesus and let Him fill your mind. Stop listening to satan, and listen to Jesus. If you ask Jesus, He will guide you.
Who do you follow? satan or Jesus? Where do you want to end up? Heaven or hell? What is your choice?
Churches preach humanism , tolerance, compromise, prosperity and freedom. Churches tickle the ears of the congregation and make them feel comfortable in their sin.
The gospel that is preached in churches is not the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel of Jesus Christ does not convert you into a church goer, it makes you a New Creation, an OBEDIENT Child of God, a Disciple of Jesus Christ, a Saint.
A born again child of God is RADICALLY different from what he used to be before he started following Jesus. The gospel of Jesus Christ requires utter obedience, willfully obeying the commands and discipline of Jesus Christ.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is His words, His commands as also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The words of Jesus are harsh. They leave no room for sin or disobedience. No sinners will go into heaven. That is why sinners will not follow Jesus. Jesus has zero tolerance for sin and disobedience. Those who continue to practice sin will not enter heaven. They will go into eternal damnation. Without holiness, no man shall see God.
Go and read the words of Jesus, as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Read Matthew 5 and see how strict the words of Jesus are. Those are the words by which all men will be judged. Jesus requires perfection. "Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
We need to obey Jesus to have eternal life.
The wishy washy, ineffectual, weak and watery gospel that is preached in churches, will take many to hell.
Those who disobey Jesus will perish.
We will all be judged by our DEEDS, not just by our faith, as so many believe.
Are our DEEDS worthy of Jesus? Do our FRUIT show that we are children of God? Or will our fruitless sinful deeds cause us to end up in hell.
Take Jesus Christ seriously, obey His words and you will live.
Churches are a scam, a hoax. They trick people into believing that they need to belong to a church to have salvation. Not only are they tricking believers, they are dishonest, fraudulent, swindling believers out of their money. Their agenda is to control and exploit church members, those whom they have brainwashed, the souls that they have captured. In order to do this, these crafty sons of the devil, do the same as their master, satan. They twist the truth. They twist the Scriptures, they use the Bible just like satan did when he tempted Jesus, by twisting Scriptures.
No single church or person can facilitate your eternal salvation. The only one who can save you from hell is Jesus Christ, not a church, not any other human being.
You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. Do not believe the lies of the church.
Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY. Jesus Christ is the TRUTH, His words, as also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Obey the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Go on your knees and cry out to Jesus Christ to save you, to make you new inside, a child of God. Demonstrate to Jesus that you are serious about following Him. Repent, stop sinning, turn away from your wicked ways. Be baptized in water, as Jesus commanded. Obey His words, live according to His commands. Seek Him in prayer. He will answer you, and He will give His Holy Spirit in you, to be with you, to teach and guide you. His Holy Spirit will come and dwell in you, and communicate with you in your spirit. Obey and follow Him and He will give you eternal life.
Get out of the prison and bondage of CHURCH. They will take you to HELL with them. Stop believing their lies and go after Jesus. You don't need a church. You don't need other people. All you need is Jesus.
Follow and obey Him and stay with Him until the end, and you will have LIFE.
Those who wish to follow Jesus need to repent of self-confidence. Self-confidence is in direct opposition to trusting in Jesus. Trusting in your own abilities and judgment will prevent you from following and obeying Jesus.
Without Jesus we can do nothing. Without Jesus you will not make it into heaven. True faith in Jesus requires that you submit yourself fully and unconditionally to Him. Firstly you have to obey His teachings, live according to His commands as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Repent of sin and of going after your own ways, be baptized in water, as Jesus commanded. Seek Jesus, seek His guidance. He will give His Holy Spirit in you to teach and guide you, but you have to TRUST Him more than your SELF, or else you will not obey Him. The commands of Jesus and the guidance that He gives you, will not always make logical sense to you. If you trust and follow Jesus you will be regarded as crazy, by the world and by unbelievers, even professing Christians. Most professing Christians will reject, ridicule and persecute you, because they trust in themselves, their Bible knowledge, their church, worldly systems and other people.
Faith in Jesus, means to deny yourself, deny your self-confidence, and trust in Him above all things. If you do not trust AND follow Jesus your faith is useless. If you do not OBEY Him but rather follow after your own opinion or interpretation of the Bible, then you are Antichrist, unbelieving, not fit for heaven.
"Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons (children) of God."Romans 8:14.
Is your trust and and confidence in Jesus? Do you follow Him, or do you rather trust in yourself?
God will repay each one according to his deeds. To those who by perseverance in doing good seek glory, honor, and immortality, He will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow wickedness, there will be wrath and anger.
There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil, first for the Jew, then for the Greek; but glory, honor, and peace for everyone who does good, first for the Jew, then for the Greek. For God does not show favoritism. Romans 2:6-11.
"For the wages of sin is death."Romans 6:23
"Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. Whatever a man sows, he will reap in return. 8The one who sows to please his flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; but the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life."Galatians 6:7,8.
Dear friends, after spending our life on this earth, what wages do we expect when we stand before the judgment throne of Jesus Christ? What did we sow? We will reap what we have sown, either eternal life or eternal torment in damnation.
Many professing Christians have the wrong emphasis. They are busy with unfruitful religious practices that will not get them into heaven. There is only one thing that will determine your eternal destiny and that is your obedience to Jesus.
Jesus said:“Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47“Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: 48he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. 49“But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly, is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great.”Luke 6:46-49.
Many Christian believers think they have salvation but they ignore the words of Jesus. They do not obey Him. They will end up in hell if they do not repent, stop sinning, be baptized in water, and live according to the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. They will not enter heaven if they are not born again of water and of the Spirit of God. They cannot follow Jesus if they do not seek and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Our emphasis must be on Jesus, obeying His words, being guided by Him, through the Holy Spirit that He gives in and with those who seek to follow Him.
Religion, going to church, endless Bible studies and teachings, fellowship with other believers, will not save you.
It is all about Jesus, knowing, obeying and following Him, every day, in all things. Jesus Christ alone is the way the truth and the life. Without Him, we can do nothing. Without Jesus we have no hope of salvation.
Is your emphasis on Jesus, obeying Him, following Him and having His approval? Is Jesus your Lord?
Jesus said:"Follow Me." He never said to just believe in Him. He said we must become His disciples to have eternal life. If you believe in Jesus, you have to obey Him.
Jesus never said salvation is free. He said:“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters— yes, even his own life— he cannot be My disciple. 27And whoever does not carry his cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple."Luke 14:26. If we love anything more than Jesus, we are not worthy of Him.
Does it mean that you have to hate your loved ones in order to follow Jesus? No. It means that you have to love and obey Jesus MORE than them.
In order to follow Jesus you have to repent, turn from sin and from following after your selfish desires. Turn to Jesus and commit to obey and follow Him. You have to obey His words, His teachings as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Be baptized in water and live holy. Seek fellowship with Jesus in prayer and He will give His Holy Spirit to be in and with you to teach and guide you. Put your mind on Jesus and on pleasing Him and He will guide you, so that you can follow Him and do what He tells you to do. He will clearly guide you, speak to you in your spirit, in your heart.
He will tell you what He wants you to do. He will convict you of things that you need to stop doing, things you need to get rid of. He will send you to speak to people. He will put the words that you have to speak in your mouth and in your mind, but if you do not follow and obey Him, you cannot be pleasing to Him, you cannot be His disciple. If you care more for the reaction or feelings of others than for what Jesus commands, you cannot obey Him. If you care more for your possessions, securities and your own comforts than for obeying Jesus, you cannot be His disciples, you cannot follow Him, you cannot be pleasing to Him. You have to be willing to give up everything in order to follow Jesus and do what He commands.
Jesus does not ask for sacrifice. He wants obedience. Giving up your earthly pleasures does not please Jesus. He requires you to do what He tells you to do. In the process you will have to give up certain things. If you refuse, those things or relationships will prevent you from following Jesus and obeying Him.
Jesus will never force us to follow Him, but if we refuse to pay the price of obedience, we cannot please Him, we cannot be His disciple and we will not inherit eternal life. We need to die to self and live for Jesus, to have eternal life.
Do not be fooled into believing the lies of the easy believerism preachers, that say that you only need to believe in Jesus to have salvation. Faith without works is dead. If you do not follow and obey Jesus, and pay the price of obedience to Him, you will not have salvation.
Get serious with Jesus. Follow and obey Him until the end or you will not have salvation.
Jesus told His disciples not to worry and not fear.
We read in Luke 12:22"And He said to His disciples, “For this reason I say to you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. 23“For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24“Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds! 25“And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span? 26“If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters? 27“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 28“But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith! 29“And do not seek what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not keep worrying. 30“For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things. 31“But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. 32“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.
33“Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves money belts which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near nor moth destroys. 34“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
If we follow and obey Jesus we need not fear nor stress. If we seek His will, His kingdom, then we have peace in our heart, because we know that He cares for us and makes all things work together for good for those who obey Him.
Those who sin and disobey Jesus, and go after their own desires, have reason to fear and stress, because they will not inherit His kingdom, they will not enter heaven, unless they repent and follow Jesus..
Do we follow Jesus, obey Him and seek His approval? Can we pray with confidence and know He hears our prayers because we do what is pleasing to Him?
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."Proverbs 9:10. The reason why Christians do not stop sinning is because they do not know Jesus, and therefor they do not fear and respect Him. They are foolish. They have no knowledge of God.
Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:34 "Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on sinning. For some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame."
That is what is wrong with most professing Christians. They have never met Jesus. They do not know Him. They are on their way to hell. They have an image of Jesus in their mind, but it is false.
Those who know Jesus fear and respect Him. We read in Hebrews 12:29 "For our God is a consuming fire." You cannot walk with God and live in sin. The reason why you sin is because you are far from God. "Without holiness no man shall see God" Hebrews 12:14.
Repent, stop sinning, be holy. Seek Jesus before it is too late. Know Him, fear Him and obey Him or you will perish.
Many people claim to be born again but they are not. How would you know if you are born again? We read in 2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new."
The moment that you accept Jesus Christ and invite Him into your life you are changed, you are made new, you become a new creation, you are born again, you see the Light, you see the kingdom of heaven and you want to go in there. Immediately you have new desires, a new taste, an appetite for the things of the kingdom of heaven and for being with Jesus. Immediately you find your old life of sin and your old ways repulsive, because you have been born again. You feel that you do not fit in with this world and the wickedness that is in it any more.
You don't need to be taught or indoctrinated to become a child of God, you are born again of the Spirit of God. You don't want to sin any more. You want to be pure and holy because you have a new heart. You did not just have a change of heart or a change of mind, you have a new heart and a new mind.
Jesus will never leave you, but if you leave Him and go back to your old ways of sin, you will spiritually die. You have to stay with Jesus and obey your new heart. You have to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit that reminds you of the words of Jesus and you have to obey Jesus, turn away from your old ways of sin, turn away from your old friends, be baptized in water as Jesus commanded. Tune in to the Holy Spirit and ignore the devil speaking in your ear.
Draw closer to Jesus in prayer and He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire, to cleanse you and burn out all the dross in you, worldliness and selfish desires of the flesh. Stay IN Christ, IN His will by OBEYING His voice speaking in your heart, then you will grow spiritually and produce fruit of righteousness and holiness. You will be a witness for Jesus through your words and actions. Stay with Jesus, stay IN Him and you will grow and bear much fruit. You will bring others to Jesus so that they can be born again and become children of God..
If you listen to the devil and go back to sin you will dwindle and die spiritually. Eventually you will be cut off and burned, you will end up in hell.
Have you been born again? Are you a new creature and are you staying IN Christ? Are you growing in your relationship with Jesus? Are you bearing fruit? If you have strayed from Jesus, run back to Him, repent and follow Him.
If you have never been born again, now is the time to invite Jesus into your life so that you can become born again, a child of God, for ever to stay with Him, for eternity.
You cannot enter the kingdom of heaven if you are not born again and IN Christ.
Many Christian believers think they are saved because they believe in Jesus. They think they can sit back and have a party in church, have doughnuts and coffee, while they wait for the rapture and snarl "unbelievers," that are not "saved" or not members of their church, those who do not go to church.
Jesus never called us to a party. He never called us to "church." He calls us to follow Him and work for His kingdom. There is a race to be run. There is a fight to be fought, there are battles to be won.
Jesus has not done it all for you. You need to gird your loins and get into the fight. Get up, get into action, deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Jesus, every day. Repent and be holy. Be baptized in water as Jesus commanded. Put on Jesus, be filled with His Holy Spirit and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Bear good fruit, multiply, be a disciple of Jesus Christ and make disciples.
If you don't bear fruit, you will get cut off and burned. You will not enter heaven.
There will be a celebration in heaven for those who followed Jesus, won the race, the battles, overcame, made disciples for Jesus and endured with Him until the end.
Do not sit back and become complacent. There is no time for celebration now. You first have to win the prize of eternal life by following Jesus and enduring with Him, until the end.
If you seek the truth, you need the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth.
Most Christian believers do not want the Holy Spirit because they hate the truth. They are running after their own desires and fables, stories, theories made up by people.
Many claim to have the Holy Spirit but they are not walking in truth, they are in darkness. They are fumbling around and running after every new storie or false prophecy made up by men. Others follow their own mind and their own insight and interpretation of the Bible, because they do not trust Jesus and they do not trust the Holy Spirit.
Some speak in tongues but they live in sin. They might at some time have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, but they are not following the Holy Spirit. By their deeds it is obvious that they are following satan, they have demons.
If you have the Holy Spirit and you are following the guidance of the Holy Spirit you will be walking in truth, because the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth. You will not sin. You will live holy and righteously. You will not seek guidance from men, or from the Bible, or from any other source. You will follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit and do the will of God.
Do you have the Holy Spirit and do you follow His guidance?
All men are born with the ability to interact with God, but many seek their own way, they reject their Maker.
God has written His laws in our hearts, in our conscience, so that no man will have any excuse for doing wrong. Our conscience is from God, not from ourselves. It is the voice of God in us, speaking to those who listen.
The only way to interact with God is through prayer. If we seek Him, we find Him and He reveals Himself to us through Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. Jesus is the ONLY way. Without Jesus there is no life, no hope. Jesus said:“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6.
If we do not interact with Jesus, if we do not know Him and He does not know us, we will not enter heaven.
Jesus said:"My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me." John 10:27.
Not all people, or believers are His sheep, only those who have been born again and who listen to Him, who follow and obey Him.
Seek the truth. Seek Jesus. Pray, call on Him. Repent of your sin and wicked ways. Plead Jesus forgiveness. Accept Him as your Lord and Master, to LISTEN to Him and to OBEY Him. Be baptized in water as He commanded. Obey His words as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. He will accept you as His own and make you new inside, born again. He will give His Spirit, the Holy Spirit, in you, to teach and guide you, so that you can interact with Him.
Jesus is not part of a one-sided religion, as preached in most churches. You need to pray, seek Jesus. He will reveal Himself to you, so that He will know you, and you will know Him.
Do you know Jesus? Do you interact with Him? Do you follow and obey Him, or do you practice a one-sided religion?
Many people say that they believe in Jesus, and profess to be Christians, but they do not know Him, nor follow Him. Their faith is in vain, because they will not enter heaven.
Jesus said:"Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness.’" Matthew 7:21-23.
Many believers only believe in Jesus but they do not know Him, neither does He know them. We only get to know Jesus if we obey His words, as also recorded in the gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, because if we obey Jesus then He reveals Himself to us.
Do you know Jesus? Do you obey Him and follow Him? Have repented and been baptized in water? Have you received the Holy Spirit that Jesus promised to those who love Him? Has Jesus revealed Himself to you and do you know Him? Does Jesus know you, or will He say to you:"I never knew you; depart from Me, you worker of lawlessness."?
Churches do not teach holiness any more. They teach believers to be lawless. They twist the scriptures to deceive the people. They twist the words of Paul and encourage believers to continue living in sin because they say that since believing in Jesus they are under grace, not under law.
The apostle Jude wrote in Jude 1:4"For certain men have crept in among you unnoticed — ungodly ones who were designated long ago for condemnation. They turn the grace of our God into a license for immorality, and they deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ."
Jesus said: 21“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’ Matthew 7:21
Without holiness no man shall see God. Lawless sinning believers will end up in hell. Do not be deceived by the false paid preachers in the worldly churches. If you keep on sinning you will end up in hell with them.
Church organizations and religious leaders do not care for the kingdom of God. They care for themselves and their organizations. Religion thrives on money. So called Christian churches and preachers use the Bible to advance their own agenda. They twist the scriptures and use them to manipulate believers to fulfill their selfish satanic objectives. They seek for popularity and the approval of people, not for truth nor the approval of God.
Paid preachers and organized churches follow their own agenda. They do not know nor follow Jesus Christ. They do not make disciples of Jesus Christ. They make proselytes that follow the church agenda. Churches fight against each other for members, stealing sheep from each other. It is all about membership which means money, tithes and offerings, membership fees. Jesus spoke of them saying:"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."Matthew 23:15. That is what they are, sons of hell. They do not know nor follow Jesus Christ. They are Antichrist. Flee from them. Do not be part of them. Do not associate with them.
The kingdom of God is not about church. Jesus is not interested in your church, which church denomination or group you belong to. What matters is whether you know Jesus and whether He knows you, whether He is pleased with you.
The only way to have eternal life is to follow and obey Jesus Christ, to follow Him not preachers, to belong to Him, not to a church.
Jesus will say to most believers, church members, followers of men:"Go away, I never knew you, you workers of iniquity." They are sinners, followers of men, sons of hell.
Evaluate your relationship with Jesus. Do you know Him? Do you know His voice and do you follow Him? Are you one of His sheep? Or do you run after preachers and belong to a church?
Who are you following? Jesus or men? Where are you heading? Heaven or hell?
The moment you decide to follow Jesus you are getting into a fight with the devil, and there is only going to be one winner, you or him. You cannot win a boxing match by staying in your corner or by being on the retreat and defense all the time.
Most Christians are being battered by satan. They are not even trying to fight back. They have given up. Others expect Jesus to protect them and to do the fighting for them.
If you want salvation, you have to overcome You have to overcome satan and you have to overcome your own flesh. You have to stop sinning and go after Jesus, follow and obey Him, build the kingdom of of God, destroy the kingdom of satan and bring souls to Jesus.
Many believers cannot even stop sinning. They are defeated by satan before they even start.
Without Jesus you cannot win. Without Jesus you cannot make it, but you have to take action, You have to stay close to Jesus and be led by the Holy Spirit. First you have to defeat the devil.
How do you defeat the devil? James 4:7 "Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9Grieve, mourn, and weep. Turn your laughter to mourning, and your joy to gloom. 10Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you."
Are you winning every day? Are you destroying the kingdom of satan, witnessing for Jesus, bringing souls to Him? Or are you cowering in a corner? Are you compromizing with the world and with satan? You do not overcome by being soft on yourself and being friendly with the world, being a compromizer. You cannot party with the world today and preach Jesus tomorrow. James 4:4 "You adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore, whoever chooses to be a friend of the world renders himself an enemy of God."
Stop being double-minded. If Jesus is your Lord, follow Him.
If you follow Jesus He leads you to victory. If you are not winning, you are not following Jesus. Get into action. Submit yourself to Jesus. Stand for righteousness. Stand for truth. Be a warrior, an overcomer, a saint. Fight the good fight every day and start winning. Win every day.
Are you serious about getting into heaven? Get Into Action. Start Winning and keep on winning, until the end. Salvation is for winners only, those who overcome.
Many people only believe in Jesus. They do not know Him, nor follow and obey Him. They are independent. They think they can get into heaven by their faith, their own power and their own wisdom. They practice their own form of Christianity, following their own doctrines, made up from selected verses from the Bible, using their own flavor and interpretation.
What these people do not realize is that without Jesus we can do nothing. Without Jesus we will not find the narrow door that leads to eternal life. Jesus Christ Himself is the way, the truth and the life. He Himself, guides His sheep through His Holy Spirit that He gives in them. They listen to His voice and they follow Him, because they know Him. They do not listen to strangers. They hold on to Him, not onto their Bibles, a church or a pastor or a set of doctrines. Their only desire is Jesus. They follow Him every day, where He guides them and they do His will, that which He tells them to do,
Are you holding on to Jesus? Do you follow Him only? Are you one of His sheep?
Many people have been told to believe in Jesus for salvation, but you need to WALK WITH Jesus, to have salvation. Believing in Jesus will not save you if you do not obey and follow Him.
We read in John 1:12"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, 13who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God." Not all believers are children of God, because not all believers are born again. Not all believers have received Jesus as Lord and Master.
To those who receive Jesus and who receive and obey His words, He gives the POWER to become children of God. Those who believe in Him, repent and are baptized in water, they are born again, those who obey His words as they are also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Jesus baptizes in the Holy Spirit. He baptizes those who obey Him. He gives His Holy Spirit in them, to be with them, to teach and guide them, so that they can follow Him, and walk with Him.
"Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God," they are children of God. (Romans 8:14).
Many people are believers. They have a church, and a Bible, and a pastor, and they believe they have salvation, but they do not have Jesus. They never accepted Him, never obeyed Him, were never born again, never knew Him, never followed Him, never walked with Him. They believe in Jesus like they believe in father Christmas and ghosts, and halloween. To them Jesus is a story, a myth, a fable.
Many just walk with their Bible, in their head and under their arm, or nowadays, in their smart phone, but they don't have Jesus. They do not know Him. They are lost and doomed.
You need to accept Jesus, obey Him, be born again, filled with the Holy Spirit, and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit to be able to walk with Jesus.
Do you have Jesus? Have you been born again? Do you have His Holy Spirit in you? Do you walk with Him, follow Him, every day? Are you a child of God or just a believer?
Those who are born again followers of Jesus, and have received the Holy Spirit must follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit to be fruitful and pleasing to Jesus. We must not follow our own mind and the opinions of others. We must get our guidance from Jesus, through the Holy Spirit.
We have to get in tune with Jesus and stay in tune with Him every day to be able to follow Him. Without Jesus we can do nothing.
How do you get in tune with Jesus? You have to be born again. Repent, turn away from sin and from following your own mind. Turn to Jesus. Repent on your knees, pray, cry out to Jesus to accept you. Ask forgiveness for your past sin and for Him to make you new inside, a child of God. Then take action, change your ways, stop sinning, clean up your life, keep your mind on Jesus, not on yourself and your own desires. Obey the teachings of Jesus as they are recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Be baptized in water as Jesus commanded. Jesus promised the Holy Spirit, His Spirit, to be in and with those who obey Him. The Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth, will guide us in all things. Pray, ask Jesus to fill you with the Holy Spirit.
Spend time in prayer. Pray to Jesus. Ask Him to baptize you with the Holy Spirit, to put His mind in you. Praise Him, thank Him for His goodness to you. Yearn for Him, seek His presence in you. Ask Him to fill your mind with His thoughts, His guidance. Keep praying. Jesus will fill you with streams of living water. He will give His peace in you, peace that surpasses all human understanding. You will go out from there and feel encapsulated with the presence of Jesus. You will experience Him all day, but you have to stay in tune with Him, keep Him in your mind. Pray in your mind and He will guide your mind and your footsteps. He will keep you from stumbling and falling into sin. He will lead you into His ways. He will guide you in your daily tasks, school, work and family.
You have to stay in tune with Jesus, every day. Pray every day, tune in every day and stay tuned in all day. Do not allow yourself to be distracted by the things of the world, by temptation, sin, friends and entertainment, TV, movies, video games and social media. Pray in your mind and ask Jesus guidance in everything. Do not be anxious. Do not stress. Trust in Jesus, stay tuned in to Jesus and you will experience His peace even though things go rough. He will guide you, but you must stay with Him.
You cannot make it into heaven on your own. You have to stay tuned to Jesus. Follow and obey Him. He will guide you every step of the way. Are you tuned in to Jesus, today?
There is a false teaching being preached and believed by many, that because of Jesus dying on the cross, all those who profess to believe in Him will be saved. That is not the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a lie.
Jesus Christ is the only way. The only way to have eternal life is to obey Jesus Christ. Believing in Jesus, means to believe who He is and therefor to obey Him, His commands, His teachings as they were also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Faith without action is dead. If we do not obey Jesus our faith is worthless.
No sinners will go into heaven. Jesus came to take away the sins of the world. He takes away the guilt of the sin, of those who accept and obey Him, repent, stop sinning and are baptized in water. They are cleansed of their sin, but then they have to SIN NO MORE. If they return to sin, they will perish. The wages of sin is death.
Those who believe in Jesus must live according to His teachings. They have to do good, bear good fruit. If they do not bear good fruit, they will get cut off and burned, they will end up in hell. We can only bear good fruit if we obey Jesus and stay with Him. If we love Him, we will obey Him and He will come and dwell in us, with us. He will give His Holy Spirit in us to guide and teach us, but we must obey Him, stay with Him, until the end.
Those who sin and those who do not bear good fruit will not enter heaven. What you do will determine whether you go into heaven or into hell. The apostle Paul wrote in Romans 2:6 "God, 6who WILL RENDER TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: 7to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life; 8but to those who are selfishly ambitious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, wrath and indignation. 9There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek, 10but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 11For there is no partiality with God."
Obey the truth. Obey Jesus Christ and DO as He commanded, and you will live.
The very same as you should not open the door of your house to any stranger, you must not open the door of your heart to evil. If you do, they will come in and destroy you.
If you open your heart to temptation, lust, envy, jealousy, evil desires, rage, pride, self pity, anxiety, fear, animosity, hatred, enmity, doubt and other demonic influences, then you have allowed them in and given them legal right to live in you. They will entangle and enslave you so that you will not be able to exercise your free will any more. In the end they will control you and cause you to do things that you do not want to do, that will destroy your life and cause you to end up in hell.
Jesus said:"Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin."John 8:34 The wages of sin is death. Jesus came to set men free from the bondage of sin and addictions. “So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed."John 8:36. If you accept Jesus and invite Him into your life, He will set
you free from the bondage of sin, but then you have to reject and evict those evil forces that you invited into your heart.
Once Jesus has set you free, if you open the door to the devil and his demons, they will come in and enslave you again, and you will be worse off than before. Jesus said:"43“Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it. 44“Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came’; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. 45“Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation.”Matthew 12:42.
That is why Christian believers who once accepted Jesus, were set free from the bondage of sin, and then opened the door to sin, often become worse sinners than they were before. Many have been deceived to think that they are saved, even if they go back to sin. They will perish if they do not find repentance and deliverance from their sin. If you sin you will burn. No sinners will enter heaven.
Do not open the door to satan. If you have become entangled in sin and addictions again, you need to run back to Jesus. Only Jesus can set you free. The apostle James wrote:"Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9Grieve, mourn, and weep. Turn your laughter to mourning, and your joy to gloom. 10Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you."James 4:7.
Do not open the door to satan. Do not become conformed to the world. Do not watch TV and movies. Do not watch pornography. Do not participate in the same senseless sinful entertainment that the sinners do, in drinking and parties. Do not waste your money on sports. Do not play video games. You will be trapped by the devil. Be holy. Avoid temptation. Keep your mind clean, reserve it for Jesus. We read in James 4:4 "You adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore, whoever chooses to be a friend of the world renders himself an enemy of God. 5Or do you think the Scripture says without reason that the Spirit He caused to dwell in us yearns with envy?" If you open the door to the devil, he will come in and destroy you and you will end up in hell.
Invite Jesus in, invite His Holy Spirit to dwell in you. Pray, seek Him, listen to Him, follow and obey Him. Reserve yourself for Jesus and do what is pleasing to Him. Stay with Jesus and you will stay free. Do not open the door to satan.
God does not work through the multitudes, or through organizations. He works through individuals whom He calls and who are willing to follow Him in faith, listening to His voice, obeying Him and doing what He tells them to do. In the end the glory goes to God, because He does not share His glory with anyone.
God does not use cowards or conformists, those who look for strength in numbers, those who are always looking for human fellowship, those who go with the flow, popular opinion and convention. That is why most Christian believers are not suitable for the kingdom of heaven. They are not willing to follow Jesus. They want to join a group, a church, be part of the establishment. They want to associate with something that is accepted and recognized by the world. They are not willing to follow Jesus and be associated with Him.
God never works through great numbers, neither through cowards. All throughout history He used and still does use the champions, brave men and women of faith, who trust in Him.
You have to be willing to totally put your trust in Jesus and follow Him. If you obey Jesus, repent and are baptized, He will give His Holy Spirit in you to teach and guide you, every step of the way, but you have to trust Him and stay with Him all the way, every day, until the end. "The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever." 1 John 2:17. You can only do the will of God, if you trust and follow Jesus, under guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Are you willing to put your trust in Jesus, and follow Him, or do you want to go along with the world that is passing away?
