What Jesus Did Will Not Determine Your Destiny

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.

May Jesus bless you.
