The concept of church, as known in the world today, is a seduction away from Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords. Jesus commanded His disciples, to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, not to build churches.
The real church, the Body of Christ, is not a building, or an organization. God does not live in buildings of stone, wood, steel and clay. He lives in the hearts of those who are born again, they are a temple of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus said:" “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him."John 14:23.
The members of the Body of Christ are individuals, disciples, His sheep, that hear His voice and follow Him. They are all of the same Spirit, the Holy Spirit. They are led by the Holy Spirit. They belong to Jesus, they listen to Him and follow Him.
Jesus' disciples never had a following. They made disciples of Jesus, and taught them to follow Him. They never built churches.. They met in houses, often in secret, because they were persecuted.
Churches seduce believers to follow the church leadership and serve the organization. Church organizations are not of the kingdom of God, they are of men. Church organizations are not inspired by God. They are inspired by the greed and ambition of men. Churches are not concerned about the souls of the people. They are only concerned about building their organization and raking in money from members. Church organizations are at war with each other. They steal each other's members. Churches do not take people to Jesus, they lure them to their church, with lies and false teachings, backed up by Bible verses that they distort to deceive the people. They promise them salvation, which they themselves do not have. It is just all lies and deception.
Jesus Christ alone is the way, not a church, or any man or woman. Do not be seduced by a church or a man. Seek Jesus and follow Him. Obey His commands, as also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Repent and be baptized in water, not by a church. You can be baptized by any born again follower of Jesus, just like the disciples of Jesus were, plain men.
Seek Jesus in prayer, and He will reveal Himself to you. He will guide and teach you.
Run from churches. Run to Jesus and stay with Him until the end.
May Jesus bless you.

satan uses Bible verses to deceive believers into disobedience and defeat, because Christians trust the Bible and do not listen to God. They are always looking for a Bible verse, they are not seeking to hear from God. When they are given a Bible verse they quote a different verse to support their opinion, the lie that they believe in.
satan did that when he tempted Jesus but Jesus said to him:"Away from me, Satan!”... “For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.’ ”Matthew 4:10. Jesus was not shaken nor deceived by satan because He came to do the will of the Father and He received His guidance from the Father, not from Bible verses or the opinions of other people.
God has a plan and a purpose for every person who accepts Jesus and is born again to become a child of God. The plan of God with your life is not written up in the Bible. The only way that you can know and perform God's plan for you, your life, is if you are led by the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised the Holy Spirit, to all those who believe in Him and obey Him, those who repent and are baptized in water and seek to follow Him. However believers have been deceived by Bible verses. They believe that they are saved if they just believe in Jesus, but they never follow Jesus. They do not obey His teachings, as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, they never repent and are not baptized in water and they do not seek nor receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. They are not led by the Holy Spirit that He gives to lead and guide them. They believe in the Bible, not in Jesus. They do not know Jesus.
Jesus said:”My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me.”John 10:27. Most believers do not know Jesus. They do not listen to His voice, They are not His sheep. Jesus does not know them and they do not follow Him, but they believe they are saved and going to heaven, because they believe selected Bible verses and they ignore and disregard other verses.
Most believers do not have the Holy Spirit and many who have received the Holy Spirit have been deceived by satan to rather trust in Bible verses than in Jesus. They rather seek a verse, or someone else's interpretation or application of the verse. That is how satan uses churches to deceive believers into following their doctrines.
Many believers study the Bible prophecies and develop their own theories and predictions about how the future will unfold. They predict the end of the world and the second coming of Jesus. They predict the false rapture that was developed from Bible verses. Many believers occupy themselves with endless Bible studies to determine and predict the future. They read and write books, attend seminars, run after false prophets, teachers and preachers, become involved in conspiracy theories. The end result is the same, believers are destroyed and end up in hell because they do not follow Jesus.
Prophecies given by God will be fulfilled in God's time and in His way, but men will not be able to predict or foretell how these will happen, unless it were given to them by the Holy Spirit. Even then it is futile to attempt to predict the future from prophecy. The Jews, to whom the oracles of God were given did not recognize Messiah, Jesus Christ, when He came, even though they studied and knew the prophecies of the prophets. He did not match up with the expectation that they had of Messiah, from their studies of the Scriptures. When Messiah came, they crucified Him. They trusted in the Scriptures and did not ask wisdom from God and that was why they were blinded to the truth.
Jesus has a specific plan for you and you can only live the life that He called you to live and do the works that He prepared for you to do if you are led by the Holy Spirit, not by reading the Bible and going to church. The Bible tells us how other disciples of Jesus lived and some of what they did, but we are each unique. We live in a different age, under different circumstances with different technology. We live in different countries, with different cultures. We are of different nations, of different races, of different gender. We were born with different unique qualities. We are each born unique. There is not, never was and never will be a replica of you. You are created wonderfully unique for a unique purpose. We are not to follow people, or attempt to be like the heroes of the Bible. We must follow Jesus and do what He tells us to do. We must follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit that He promised to those who love and obey Him.
We are called to become part of the kingdom of God. We can only be part of the kingdom of God if we are born again, and serve the King, Jesus Christ. We can only serve Him if we listen to His voice and do what He commands us to do. We can only know His will and have His specific directions for us if we follow and obey His direction, that He will give to us if we listen to Him. Jesus does not force anybody to serve Him. He invites us to follow Him. Listen to Him and obey Him, live our lives for Him. If we do He will give us eternal life, to be with Him for eternity. If we reject Him, we will spend eternity in damnation.
Jesus Christ is the WAY, not the Bible, the church or any other way. satan will do everything in his power to trick and deceive you, to not trust and follow Jesus. He will use the Bible also, all those things that you trust more than Jesus.
Do you trust in Jesus, obey Him, hear His voice and follow Him, every day?
May Jesus bless you.

Many Christian believers do not understand WHO Jesus Christ really is. To many He is just the instrument of their salvation, a salvation which they believe that they have.
They do not understand that Jesus Christ is the Highest and Final Authority, the judge of all mankind. All power and all authority belongs to Him, in heaven and on earth.
Salvation is not just a matter of confessing that you believe in Jesus. It is a matter of accepting Him as your Lord and Master and serving Him. Believing in Jesus requires that you obey Him, obey His words, His teachings, and live according to His commands.
You cannot fool Jesus. You cannot lie to Him. You cannot hide anything from Him. Many only pay Jesus lip service. They are pretenders They think that He does not see and know their thoughts and wicked deeds. They forget that Jesus said:" I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29“If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30“If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell."Matthew 5:28-30.
Many listen to their lying preachers who tell them that Jesus was not serious. They do not fear Jesus, because they do not know Him.
If you know Jesus and really believe His words you will fear Him and do what He commanded.
You will serve and obey Him and stay with Him. You will repent of all evil and live holy, righteously. You will not willfully sin. If you stumble and commit sin, you will immediately repent and plead His forgiveness. You will guard your relationship with Him above all things. "There is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do." Hebrews 4:13.
Do you know Jesus as Lord and Master? Do you follow, serve and obey Him? Is Jesus your LORD?
May Jesus bless you.

If you want to enter the Kingdom of Heaven and have eternal life you will have to follow and obey Jesus Christ. Jesus came, not to do His own will, but the will of the Father.
Jesus said:"49I have not spoken on My own, but the Father who sent Me has commanded Me what to say and how to say it. 50And I know that His command leads to eternal life. So I speak exactly what the Father has told Me to say.”John 12:49,50.
God is not interested in the doctrines and opinions of men and churches, neither in their interpretations of the Bible. Jesus came and delivered the words of eternal life. Those who reject and disobey the words of Jesus will NOT enter heaven. They will not have eternal life. 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."John 8,47-48.
The words of Jesus, the words of eternal life, were recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. If you do not understand what Jesus meant, pray, ask Him, and He will give you understanding. If you obey His words, He will reveal Himself to you. He will, guide and teach you. If you follow and obey Him, He will lead you to eternal life.
Obey Jesus, repent, stop sinning, be baptized in water. Deny yourself, stop going after your own desires and lusts, your own opinion. Go after Jesus. He will come and dwell with you, in you, with you. If you stay with Him and keep on obeying Him, He will lead you to eternal life.
Jesus is Lord, obey and follow Him or else you will not enter the kingdom of heaven and have eternal life.
May Jesus bless you.

“Lord,” someone asked Him, “will only a few people be saved?” Jesus answered, 24“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. 25After the master of the house gets up and shuts the door, you will stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’
But he will reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’
26Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’
27And he will answer, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers.’
28There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth"Luke 13:23-28.
Revelation 20:11-15 "Then I saw a great white throne and the One seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from His presence, and no place was found for them. 12And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne.
And there were open books, and one of them was the book of life. And the dead were judged according to their deeds, as recorded in the books. 13The sea gave up its dead, and Death and Hades gave up their dead, and each one was judged according to his deeds.
14Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death—the lake of fire. 15And if anyone was found whose name was not written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."
Jesus Christ writes your name in the book of life when you accept Him, but He will also delete your name from the book of life if you keep on disobeying Him.
Jesus is the way, the life and the truth. He is the only door through which you can enter heaven. Those whose names are not written in the book of life will not enter heaven.
Is your name written in the book of life? Do you follow and obey Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.

You must be born again to become a child of God. You must be born of the Spirit of God and of water, through baptism as Jesus commanded.
The first man, Adam was made by God. He was a son of God, until he sinned and was cast out of Paradise. Since then the offspring of Adam were not children of God but sons of men.
Jesus Christ was the second Adam, born of a women but of the Spirit of God, not of the seed of a man. He was born of God and He did the will of God. He is the Son of God.
Those who believe in Jesus, accept and obey Him, repent and are baptized in water, become born of the Spirit of God. They become children of God, sons of God, but if they sin, like Adam they will be cast out and will not enter heaven.
We read in John 1:12,13 "12But to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God— 13children born not of blood, nor of the desire or will of man, but born of God.
Jesus said:"He who is of God hears the words of God; John 8:47.
He said:27“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. John 10:27,28.
"No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God."1 John 3:9
"For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world-- our faith."1 John 5:4.
You must be born again to enter the kingdom of heaven. Jesus said:"I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."John 3:5.
Have you been born again? Have you believed in Jesus, repented and been baptized as He commanded? Have you received the Holy Spirit that He promised to those who obey Him? Do you hear the words of God? Are you one of His sheep? Do you hear His voice? Do you follow Him? Have you stopped sinning? Do you overcome the flesh and the world? Are you truly born again of the Spirit of God?
May Jesus bless you.

Many believers claim that you cannot stop sinning, follow Jesus and do what He requires in your own power. They are deceived.
All the power that we have, comes from Jesus and we can decide how we use that power. We can use it for our own pleasures and sin or we can use it to follow and glorify Jesus.
If we need more power, we can ask Jesus, but we must first use up what He has already given us. Without Jesus, we can do nothing.
Without Jesus we cannot even breathe.
"28Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will never grow faint or weary;
His understanding is beyond searching out.
29He gives power to the faint
and increases the strength of the weak.
30Even the youths may faint and grow weary,
and young men stumble and fall.
31But those who wait upon the LORD
will renew their strength;
they will mount up with wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary;
they will walk and not faint."
Without Jesus, we can do nothing.
Without Jesus we cannot even breathe.
Use the power that He has given you to glorify Him. Seek Him, follow Him and obey Him, and He will give streams of living water to flow through you. Jesus is all the power that you need. I you don't have power it is because you are not with Jesus.
May Jesus bless you.

Many believers have been taught to obey the church and the church leadership. That is antichrist. We have to follow and obey Jesus and submit ourselves to Him, not to men. The Roman Catholics call their priests "father."
Jesus said:" 8“But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9“Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10“Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ." Matthew 23:9,10.
Churches use Bible verses and their own teachings to deceive, control and manipulate believers. They make them slaves to the the church organization and the leadership.
Jesus is Lord. We will be judged by His words. Go and read His teachings and commands in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Repent and be baptized, follow and obey Jesus alone, not churches or men.
Run from churches. They will take you to hell. Follow Jesus and you will live.
May Jesus bless you.

The whole world is enslaved, being deceived and misled through lies. Jesus said to some who believed in Him:"If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”John 8:31,32.
Jesus Christ IS the way, the life and the truth. He gives the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth in those who follow Him. The Holy Spirit will guide them into all truth. Jesus said:"13“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14“He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. 15“All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you." John 16:13-15.
Those who follow Jesus will know the truth, they walk in the Light, they will not be in darkness. Very few believers follow Jesus. Very few know the truth, because they do not obey and follow Jesus. They do not have and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. They are being deceived. They are in bondage of lies, being manipulated and controlled by worldly churches, the world system, people and the media. They are slaves to sin and to the satanic systems of the world, all because they do nto follow Jesus.
Do you know and follow Jesus? Are you led by the Holy Spirit? Are you free, or are you in bondage and enslaved through lies and deception?
IF you follow Jesus, you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
May Jesus bless you.

Most believers have no relationship with Jesus. They trust in preachers and prophets. Many run after prophets and follow prophecy sites on the internet. Their trust is in men and women, not in God. Therefor they are cursed by God and close to destruction.
We read in 1 Kings 22 about Ahab, king of Israel, who trusted in the prophets while his heart was far from God. God put a lying spirit in the mouth of the prophets to entice him to go out to war so that he would be killed in battle.
(I will paste the chapter in the comments to this video so that those who are interested can read it).
God does speak through preachers and prophets, but only to warn His people to come to Him, obey Him and follow Him.
Jesus guides each and every person, who seeks Him, trusts Him and wishes to follow Him. His sheep HEAR His VOICE and they follow Him. Jesus gives His Holy Spirit in every individual who seeks Him; repents, is baptized in water and lives in holiness, in obedience to Him. He Himself guides His sheep.
Those who follow after people and seek their guidance from men and women, will be deceived, they will perish.
Jesus Christ alone is the way, the truth and the life. Seek Him, trust Him, follow Him alone, and you will not be deceived, you will not be in darkness.
May Jesus bless you.
"1Three years passed without war between Aram and Israel. 2In the third year Jehoshaphat the king of Judah came down to the king of Israel. 3Now the king of Israel said to his servants, “Do you know that Ramoth-gilead belongs to us, and we are still doing nothing to take it out of the hand of the king of Aram?” 4And he said to Jehoshaphat, “Will you go with me to battle at Ramoth-gilead?” And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, “I am as you are, my people as your people, my horses as your horses.”
5Moreover, Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, “Please inquire first for the word of the LORD.” 6Then the king of Israel gathered the prophets together, about four hundred men, and said to them, “Shall I go against Ramoth-gilead to battle or shall I refrain?” And they said, “Go up, for the Lord will give it into the hand of the king.” 7But Jehoshaphat said, “Is there not yet a prophet of the LORD here that we may inquire of him?” 8The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “There is yet one man by whom we may inquire of the LORD, but I hate him, because he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. He is Micaiah son of Imlah.” But Jehoshaphat said, “Let not the king say so.” 9Then the king of Israel called an officer and said, “Bring quickly Micaiah son of Imlah.” 10Now the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah were sitting each on his throne, arrayed in their robes, at the threshing floor at the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets were prophesying before them. 11Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made horns of iron for himself and said, “Thus says the LORD, ‘With these you will gore the Arameans until they are consumed.’” 12All the prophets were prophesying thus, saying, “Go up to Ramoth-gilead and prosper, for the LORD will give it into the hand of the king.”
13Then the messenger who went to summon Micaiah spoke to him saying, “Behold now, the words of the prophets are uniformly favorable to the king. Please let your word be like the word of one of them, and speak favorably.” 14But Micaiah said, “As the LORD lives, what the LORD says to me, that I shall speak.”
15When he came to the king, the king said to him, “Micaiah, shall we go to Ramoth-gilead to battle, or shall we refrain?” And he answered him, “Go up and succeed, and the LORD will give it into the hand of the king.” 16Then the king said to him, “How many times must I adjure you to speak to me nothing but the truth in the name of the LORD?”
17So he said,
“I saw all Israel
Scattered on the mountains,
Like sheep which have no shepherd.
And the LORD said, ‘These have no master.
Let each of them return to his house in peace.’”
18Then the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Did I not tell you that he would not prophesy good concerning me, but evil?”
19Micaiah said, “Therefore, hear the word of the LORD. I saw the LORD sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him on His right and on His left. 20“The LORD said, ‘Who will entice Ahab to go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?’ And one said this while another said that. 21“Then a spirit came forward and stood before the LORD and said, ‘I will entice him.’ 22“The LORD said to him, ‘How?’ And he said, ‘I will go out and be a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ Then He said, ‘You are to entice him and also prevail. Go and do so.’ 23“Now therefore, behold, the LORD has put a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets; and the LORD has proclaimed disaster against you.”
24Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah came near and struck Micaiah on the cheek and said, “How did the Spirit of the LORD pass from me to speak to you?” 25Micaiah said, “Behold, you shall see on that day when you enter an inner room to hide yourself.” 26Then the king of Israel said, “Take Micaiah and return him to Amon the governor of the city and to Joash the king’s son; 27and say, ‘Thus says the king, “Put this man in prison and feed him sparingly with bread and water until I return safely.”’” 28Micaiah said, “If you indeed return safely the LORD has not spoken by me.” And he said, “Listen, all you people.”
Defeat and Death of Ahab
29So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah went up against Ramoth-gilead. 30The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “I will disguise myself and go into the battle, but you put on your robes.” So the king of Israel disguised himself and went into the battle. 31Now the king of Aram had commanded the thirty-two captains of his chariots, saying, “Do not fight with small or great, but with the king of Israel alone.” 32So when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, they said, “Surely it is the king of Israel,” and they turned aside to fight against him, and Jehoshaphat cried out. 33When the captains of the chariots saw that it was not the king of Israel, they turned back from pursuing him.
34Now a certain man drew his bow at random and struck the king of Israel in a joint of the armor. So he said to the driver of his chariot, “Turn around and take me out of the fight; for I am severely wounded.” 35The battle raged that day, and the king was propped up in his chariot in front of the Arameans, and died at evening, and the blood from the wound ran into the bottom of the chariot. 36Then a cry passed throughout the army close to sunset, saying, “Every man to his city and every man to his country.”
37So the king died and was brought to Samaria, and they buried the king in Samaria. 38They washed the chariot by the pool of Samaria, and the dogs licked up his blood (now the harlots bathed themselves there), according to the word of the LORD which He spoke. 39Now the rest of the acts of Ahab and all that he did and the ivory house which he built and all the cities which he built, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? 40So Ahab slept with his fathers, and Ahaziah his son became king in his place." 1 Kings 22:2-40 NASB

The world rejects, mocks and scorns Jesus. Many Christian believers deny Him. They confess to believe in Him but they disobey and disregard Him. They do not realize that Jesus is the final judge and He sees and hears everything.
Jesus told this parable:“The land of a rich man was very productive. 17“And he began reasoning to himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place to store my crops?’ 18“Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19‘And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.”’ 20“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’ 21“So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”Luke 12:16-21.
It is foolish to disregard Jesus. He has the final say. He will decide who will go into heaven and who will go into hell. Those who disobey Jesus will perish. Many believers disobey Him. They live in sin. They practice religion but have no relationship with Jesus. Jesus warned:"21Not 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.
Jesus has the last say. Do you fear, love and obey Him? Do you know Him, and does He know you?
May Jesus bless you.

Many professing Christians are unrighteous. They practice LAWLESSNESS. Not only do they sin, but they approve the sin of others.
God never changed. God never became tolerant of sin. Jesus Christ died for sin. He did not die so that you can sin. He paid the price for sin, so that those who obey Him, repent, STOP SINNING, be baptized in water, and follow Him can have eternal life.
The soul that sins will die. Christians that practice lawlessness will end up in hell.
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 7:21-23
May Jesus bless you.

"Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world."1 John 4:4. Those who have Jesus in them OVERCOME sin and the world. They are OVERCOMERS.
Many profess to be Christians but they are sinners, their deeds show that they are of satan. They have the spirit of antichrist in them. They are false Christians and false prophets. A tree is known by it's fruit. A good tree does not bear bad fruit. If Jesus is in you, you will not sin, you will obey Him and bear good fruit.
The false Christians confess Christianity and their church, but they do not confess Jesus. They talk about their church and quote Bible verses. They say they believe in Jesus, but they do not confess Jesus. They have no allegiance with Him. Jesus is not in them.
Do not believe the false Christians and do not follow after them. We read in I John 4:1-6 " 1Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; 3and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. 4You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. 5They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. 6We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error."
Are you from God? Do you have Jesus in you? Have you stopped sinning? Are you OVERCOMING?
May Jesus bless you.

Those who seek Jesus will receive, dreams, visions and revelations. The prophet Joel prophesied:
17‘AND IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,’ God says,
‘THAT I WILL POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT ON ALL MANKIND;
AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY,
AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS,
AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS;
18EVEN ON MY BONDSLAVES, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN,
I WILL IN THOSE DAYS POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT
And they shall prophesy.
19‘AND I WILL GRANT WONDERS IN THE SKY ABOVE
AND SIGNS ON THE EARTH BELOW,
BLOOD, AND FIRE, AND VAPOR OF SMOKE.
20‘THE SUN WILL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS
AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD,
BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD SHALL COME.
21‘AND IT SHALL BE THAT EVERYONE WHO CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.’
Jesus said to His disciples before He ascended to heaven: "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16“He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17“These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
God never changed. Jesus never changes. He is the same, yesterday, today and for ever. These things were promised to those who believe and obey Jesus. The reason why believers are not experiencing these things is because they do not follow after Jesus. They do not obey Him. They refuse to repent and be baptized. On the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was given the people asked Peter what they should do to be saved and receive the same experience, and He replied:"“Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39“For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.”
If we obey Jesus and seek Him, we will also receive dreams, visions, revelations and miracles from Jesus. these things were promised to the true followers of Jesus, His bond servants, those who earnestly seek Him. Are you earnestly seeking Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.

Many professing Christians are playing a game. They think they can outsmart God. They are playing religion and by their standards they are doing a good job at it. They are members of the church of their choice and believe the doctrines of their choice. They read the Bible version of their choice, and interpret the Scriptures according to their own liking. Their religion is a show, a sham, practiced before other people to impress them. these people are only fooling themselves but you cannot fool God.
There is one judge of all men, and that is Jesus Christ. He alone will decide who will go into heaven and who not. Those who disobey the words fo Jesus, His teachings and commands, as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, will NOT enter the kingdom of heaven. Those who do not believe in and obey Jesus are already judged. "“This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil." John 3:19. Jesus is the Light of the world. Those who disobey Him will perish. "The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand. 36“He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but HE WHO DOES NOT OBEY the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”John 3:35,36.
Jesus SEES and KNOWS everything. He knows who truly loves Him, obeys and who follows Him, and He knows who are religious pretenders. They cannot fool Him and they will not enter heaven.
His sheep HEAR His voice, they FOLLOW and OBEY Him, and He knows His sheep. Are you one of Jesus' sheep? Do you HEAR His voice and follow Him or do you practice dead religion?
May Jesus bless you.

Jesus said:"My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and they follow Me." John 10:27. Very few believers HEAR the voice of Jesus. Very few know Jesus and are known by Him. Very few believers follow Jesus.
Why is that? Are they really His sheep? Jesus said:"He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.”John 8:47. Most believers are of their church. They understand and accept the teachings of their church and their preachers but they do not understand the words of Jesus. They are for ever studying the Bible and seeking a new interpretation of scripture but they never come to understanding, because they never accepted Jesus. They simply do not belong to Him.
The words of Jesus, the words that He spoke and taught, as also recorded in the gospels, Matthew Mark Luke and John, those are the words of eternal life, but most believers do not accept them. Neither do they obey them. They are not children of God.
The apostle John wrote 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." Those who have received Jesus, accepted Him as their Lord and Master, have the right to become children of God. They are born again because they embrace Jesus and His words. They go after Him and live their lives to please Him. They repent and are baptized in water, born again of Spirit and of water. They do not argue His words. They embrace Him and therefor it is given to them to see and enter the kingdom of God. they hear His voice, and they follow Him.
Jesus said:“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”John 3:3. Jesus said:“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6“That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit."John 3:5,6.
Most believers are not children of God. They are not Jesus' sheep. They do not hear His voice and they do not follow Him. They believe they are saved because they confess to believe in Jesus, but they have no relationship with Him. They are deceived, lost and doomed.
Those who receive Jesus, embrace and obey Him, will hear His voice. They will understand His words and they will be able to follow Him.
If we draw closer to Jesus, He will draw closer to us. If we seek Him, we will find Him and we will know Him. He will know us and in Him we will have eternal life.
Are you one of Jesus' sheep? Do you hear His voice and do you follow Him? Does Jesus know you? Or will he say to you:"Go away I never knew you, you who practice lawlessness?
May Jesus bless you.

Many Christian believers focus on all the wrong things and that is why they are losers, they do not have victory over sin, satan and the flesh. They cannot stop sinning, they cannot resist temptation, they have no self-control.. They are driven by their fleshly desires that cause them to sin and get into trouble all the time and will eventually cause them to end up in hell.
These Christian believers, who are some of them very serious, focus on various things. Some are preachers, evangelists, pastors, church leaders, they focus on building churches. Others are church members who ardently support the church, do Bible study, attend motivational speeches and conferences, do charity work, go on mission trips, give vast amounts of money to churches and missions, but they are still losers, sinners driven by their own lusts. impulses, insights, ideals and opinions. Are they pleasing to God? Do they bring glory to Jesus? Is their fruit pleasing to God? No, because their fruit is bad.
We can only bear good fruit if we remain IN Christ. We can only do the will of God if we follow and obey Jesus. "Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God."
Those who are in the flesh, going after the desires, impulses, logic and lusts of the flesh cannot please God. They can also not overcome sin, defeat satan and control their flesh.
The only way to be pleasing to God is to follow and obey Jesus, to be led by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will teach you all things, will guide you into doing the will of God, following His plan, will lead you to victory and fruitfulness for the kingdom of God. Without Jesus we can do nothing. Without His Holy Spirit guiding us, we are LOST.
Our focus must be with Jesus. Our fellowship must be with Him. If we stay in fellowship with Jesus, follow and obey Him, we will overcome, sin satan and the flesh, we will be victorious.
Submit fully to Jesus. Repent of sin and your own selfish ways, go after Jesus. Obey His words and teachings as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Repent, stop sinning. stop going after your own desires, be baptized in water and seek Jesus in prayer. commit to be pleasing to Him Him every day, stay focused on Him and He will fill you with His wisdom, guidance and understanding. He will give His Holy Spirit to be in and with you, to stay with you so that you can do His will and be victorious, pleasing to Him, bear good fruit and bring glory to God.
Focus on Jesus, follow and obey Him and you will overcome.
May Jesus bless you.

Salvation is not about interpreting the Bible. Salvation is about knowing, obeying and following Jesus Christ. He Himself is the way, the truth and the life. There is no other way to have eternal life.
The Bible testifies of Jesus. The words that He spoke, His teachings and the miracles that He performed, His human birth, life, death and resurrection were recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The words of Jesus are the words of eternal life, for those who accept and obey them. Jesus said:"It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life."John 6:63. The words of Jesus are plain and simple and need no interpretation, they only need to be obeyed.
Those who believe and obey the words of Jesus are spiritually re-born, they become born of the Spirit of God that makes them Spiritually Alive. They are given insight and understanding of the kingdom of heaven, they are enlightened by the Holy Spirit. Jesus said:"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you."John 14:26.
The reason why believers are in darkness, is because they do not obey the words of Jesus and therefor they do not receive nor accept the Holy Spirit that He promised to those who love Him. They rather seek salvation in the Bible, adding their own interpretations or that of others. They are doing the same as the pharisees did and Jesus said to them:"39“You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; 40and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life."John5:39,40. The very same today, believers search the Scriptures, study the Bible, adding their own doctrines and interpretations, believing that they will have eternal life by doing that, but they refuse to go to Jesus, to follow and obey Him. They are forever arguing about their salvation, about scripture interpretation, but they do not go to Jesus. They do not trust the Holy Spirit. They look for assurances in the Bible but they have no relationship with Jesus, they do not know Him. They are in darkness.
If we obey Jesus, repent and are baptized in water and live according to His teachings, He will reveal Himself to us, He will give His Holy Spirit in us, He will make us new inside, born-again, so that we can see the kingdom of God. It is through our relationship with Jesus, through prayer and obedience, that we grow in knowledge of Him and of the kingdom of God, not through Bible study and interpretation of the Scriptures. Jesus gives UNDERSTANDING, wisdom and guidance to those who love, trust and obey Him.
Stop listening to the opinions of men. Stop following after every new teaching of men, stop buying and reading their books. Stop seeking and following various interpretations of Scripture. Obey Jesus, His words. Pray, seek Jesus in sincerity, from your heart, in faith. Ask His guidance in every aspect of your life. Trust Him, expect an answer, expect guidance. Stay focused on Jesus and He will guide you, He will give you eternal life if you stay with Him, until the end.
May Jesus bless you.

A born-again Christian is not a sinner, because he is a new creature. He has been born of the Spirit of God and of water through baptism.
A born-again child of God has been grafted into the Vine, Jesus Christ. We read in John 15:1 "1“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2“Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 3“You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. 6“If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned."
If we do not stay with Jesus and do what He commands, but rather go after the pleasures of sin, and follow after our own lusts, we will produce bad fruit. We will be warned and disciplined but if we do not change our ways obey Jesus and bear good fruit we will get cut off and burned. Those who bear bad fruit will end up in hell even if they were once born-again.
Many people pretend to be Christians, but they are false prophets and false Christians. They are very religious, some are preachers, prophets, Bible scholars and spiritual people. Some even heal the sick and speak in tongues, but they are false, because they produce bad fruit, they are SINNERS.
Jesus warned: “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18“A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20“So then, you will know them by their fruits.
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 7:15-23.
If we truly follow Jesus Christ, we will obey Him and bear good fruit. We will be known by our fruit. Christians are not sinners, they are saints, holy people. They do not sin.
May Jesus bless you.

Churches are a evil force that seek to control and manipulate you. They are driven by the spirit of Jezebel. Not only do they fornicate with the world but they seduce believers to follow after them. The worldly church is Mother of Prostitutes in Revelation 18 and 19, and her daughters, all the worldly church organizations that were born from her. The Roman Catholic Church was built and grown on the blood of the saints. From her came forth thousands of harlot daughters. Every time believers try to come out of the spell of the church harlot Jezebel spirit, they are infiltrated again and seduced to start a new church. That is why there are thousands of churches but few disciples of Jesus Christ.
Churches use the Name of Jesus and the Bible, but seduce people into following after them. They are not disciples of Jesus, neither do they make disciples of Jesus. They make their own doctrines and rules and rituals, and promise members salvation, while they disobey Jesus and teach others to do the same.
There is only one way to have eternal life. That is is to follow and obey Jesus, not to follow others, or to belong to a church.
Church organizations are none of them part of the kingdom of God. They are all kingdoms of men led by the spirit of Jezebel. They are in the power of the evil one, satan, and they destroy souls through lies, sorcery, witchcraft, deception. They twist the truth, use souls for their own benefit, while they are leading them to hell.
The true Body of Christ is not an organization and it has no leaders. Jesus Christ Himself is the Head and Leader. He guides every disciple by His Holy Spirit that He gives in them. They are His sheep, who listen to His voice and who follow Him. They are a small flock that meet in houses, or wherever the Head, Jesus, brings them together.
Jesus calls His sheep out, to listen to His voice and follow Him, to serve Him and be part of His kingdom. The judgment of Jesus is coming on the harlot church, Babylon.
"4I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; 5for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6“Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her. 7“To the degree that she glorified herself and lived sensuously, to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘I SIT as A QUEEN AND I AM NOT A WIDOW, and will never see mourning.’ 8“For this reason in one day her plagues will come, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong." Revelation 18:4-8.
Come out of the deception of the Jezebel church system and follow Jesus. Jesus Christ is the only way, follow Him. 14“These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” Revelation 17:14.
Are you with Jesus? Will you overcome with Him? Are you called and chosen and faithful?
May Jesus bless you.

Everything that God made is exceedingly wonderful. So are women, if they serve the purpose that God made them for, as a helpmate for the man, and keeper of the home. However, many women want to be men and want to compete with men. In the end they are the ones who suffer and are unfulfilled.
Modern society has rejected God and even Christians follow after the ways of the world. Women don't want to stay at home, keep the house, bring up the children and be a helpmate to their husband. They have all sorts of excuses, that are basically selfish.
If you want to follow Jesus and live God's way, He will enable you to do so, even in modern society. God never changed.
I want to share my testimony with you. My first marriage was, to say the least, stormy. My mother-in-law believed that my wife should be independent, should be a career women. All went well until she visited, then hell broke loose in my house, and the wife was dissatisfied. She was an apprentice hair dresser and her mother insisted that she finnish her apprenticeship, which meant that she had to work long hours for extremely low wages. Our baby had to go to day care. My salary had to support the house, the daycare and my wife's transport, because her wages were so little it hardly covered her tuition costs. I had to walk to work because I could not afford transport. My wife drove to work with our car. My wife fell pregnant and we had our second baby. She had to interrupt her apprenticeship for a while, and once again mother-in-law interfered, insisting she go work. My wife had a nervous breakdown and ended up in psych ward. She went totally nuts. We were battling financially. I now had two babies in day care and a wife in the nuthouse. She came out of there and was permanently on medication, but then she went back to work to finish her apprenticeship.
When our second baby was nine months old my wife came home from work one day and drove in front of a thirty ton truck, loaded with steel. She wife never regained consciousness but died 3 weeks later in hospital. I became a widower with two little boys, one 3 years old and the other 9 months old. On top of that I had massive hospital bills. Never once did my in-laws offer to help with the children. A week after my wife died I received a certificate in the mail. My wife had qualified as a hairdresser. My dead wife was a qualified career women, a hairdresser with one of the elite hair salons.
My unmarried sister came and lived with us for a while to help with the house and the kids.
I was introduced to many women but none of them were interested in a 29 year old widower with two little boys. Then I was introduced to a young lady who, on the second date asked to see my children and scolded me for not bringing them along. She had never been married before but I asked her and soon after we got married. Her name is Christiena, my wife now for 34 years.
She was well educated, with a college diploma, working at a big corporation. When we married she quit her job to stay home and look after my kids. We later had one boy of our own. She has been a mother, a nurturer, a housekeeper, a loving wife and helpmate. My children grew up with a mother who was always there for them, feeding them before they went to school, waiting for them after school, taking care of all their needs, when they were naughty, when they were sick, when they were sad and needed support. She has always been there for them. They grew up to be fine hard working men, who know right from wrong and were taught excellent values.
When I married Christiena, I had a lot of debt. I was not earning a lot of money, but she is a godly woman and she came to be a mother for my children and a helpmate for me. We have been through rough times together. At one time I was fired from my job because of following Jesus. We lived in a country where there is no social Security, no government help, but Christiena never went out to work. Jesus supplied for us and helped us. He enabled me to provide for my family. We never begged and never came short of anything. My children never went to bed hungry. They were always properly clothed and kept. Together we have done many things, as husband and wife, as a family. We have worked hard, built a house with our own hands, done all kinds of things together. We worked together and prayed together and we are still together.
A year ago I was very ill. I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. The past year was physically the most difficult year in my life. I was in hospital, in pain, in ICU for more than a month. I died twice and was resuscitated. In December 2017 nobody believed I would survive, other than my wife, Christiena, she prayed for me and stayed with me, often sleeping in the hospital at my bed side. I came out of hospital and was so weak I could not walk. She nursed me back to a situation that I was strong enough to go through chemo, radiation and thereafter through huge surgery. Christiena nursed me and looked after me through all of this. I never went to rehab. After the first time I came out of hospital I had open wounds on my stomach. I carried a vacuum pump, to drain the wounds, because I had sepsis. The wounds had to be cleaned and dressed daily. She fed me when I was too weak to eat and rather felt like dying. She drove me around to hospital and back for months, looking after me day and night. In June 2018 I went in for a very big surgery, 7 hours, during which my rectum was removed, my gallbladder was removed, plastic surgery was done to reconstruct my rear, using muscle from my leg and repairing hernias created by the previous surgeries. I had a painful recovery from that, for months and had drain pipes hanging from my body that had to be cleaned daily. My wounds had to heal. I am recovering well, with my helpmate beside me. She never left her post.
I thank Jesus for keeping me alive and for supplying in all our needs. I thank Jesus for a good wife and helpmate, a fellow follower of Jesus and servant of the kingdom of God. I thank Jesus that we can testify for Him and point others to Him. Jesus makes our life complete.
Follow Jesus. Be the man He wants you to be and He will sustain you. Be the woman He made you to be and you will be fulfilled.
I want to reiterate the words of Psalm 128
"How blessed is everyone who fears the LORD,
Who walks in His ways.
2When you shall eat of the fruit of your hands,
You will be happy and it will be well with you.
3Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
Within your house,
Your children like olive plants
Around your table.
4Behold, for thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the LORD."
May Jesus bless you.

Most Christian believers are not serious about following Jesus. They just want salvation. They don't want to go into hell, when they die, but they are not interested in Jesus. What they do not realize is that Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY to eternal life, not just believing in Him, but following and obeying Him.
If you do not OBEY the teachings of Jesus and do not FOLLOW after Him, you will no way enter heaven. Going to church, reading the Bible, confessing to be a Christian, will not save you.
You need to get serious about following Jesus. Put your mind on Jesus and do what He commanded. Repent, from your heart. Stop sinning. Stop going after your own desires and the things of the world. Be baptized in water. Live holy. Live according to the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Communicate with Jesus, pray, seek Him with all your heart and He will come and dwell with you. You will experience His presence. He will give His Holy Spirit in and with you to teach and guide you, but you need to seek Him.
If we seek Him we find Him, if we draw closer to Him, He draws closer to us. Stop following after other people. Stop seeking the advice of others. If you want eternal life you have to follow the advice and guidance of Jesus, not that of other Christians. If you need guidance and direction, PRAY, ask Jesus. He will give it to you. That is the only way that you can follow Jesus. That is what the Bible tells you and that is the advice that true followers of Jesus will give you.
Jesus is ALIVE and He speaks. His sheep HEAR His VOICE and they FOLLOW Him. They do not follow after the pleasures of sin, their own ambitions and other people. Their ambition is to follow Jesus, do what He tells them to do, go where He sends them, achieve His will and for Him to be pleased with them. they live for Him and His kingdom.
Jesus is Lord. If you do not follow and serve Him, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven, His kingdom.
If you want LIFE, get serious about Jesus. Go after Him, serve, follow and obey Him until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.

Very few people are willing to talk about Jesus. That includes MOST professing Christians. They will talk about their church and their pastor and God, but they avoid talking about Jesus.
Here is a surprize, dear friends. Jesus said:"But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven."Matthew 10:33.
Also He said:"For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in His Father's glory with the holy angels."Mark 8:38.
Jesus will deny and refuse most professing Christians entry into heaven because they denied Him both in words and in deeds. Many confessed to be Christians but they did not follow nor obey Jesus. They did not know Him and therefor had no testimony of Him. By their deeds they showed that they were of the devil. They were a shame on His Name.
Jesus said:"Many 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 7:22,23.
Dear friend, do you talk about Jesus? Do you witness for Jesus? Do you show by your obedience to His words that you love and follow Him? Do you testify for Jesus, that He is alive, He is your Lord and that you follow Him? Or do you deny Him?
Many people ask me why I always say: May Jesus bless you. That is because Jesus is my Lord and I confess Him. To refer to God, can mean any god. I talk about Jesus. What about you?
May Jesus bless you.

Jesus leads you to victory, if you follow Him. If you follow Jesus you will have many battles, trials and tribulations
We must go into the kingdom of heaven through much tribulation. The way of the disciple, the true follower of Jesus is a life of battles, trials, tribulations but also of victory. We are called to overcome, sin, satan and the flesh.
I read the words of the apostle Paul in Romans 8:28-37.
" 28And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; 30and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
31What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? 32He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? 33Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; 34who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. 35Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36Just as it is written,
“FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG;
WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED.”
37But in all these things we OVERWHELMINGLY CONQUER through Him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Are you suffering temptation, tribulation, distress, difficulty, pain, rejection, persecution for following Jesus? Are you overcoming? If you stay in Jesus you will overcome.
If you are not haveing tribulation, you are not following Jesus. we read in Acts 14:22 "strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, "Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God."
There will be no crown for those who did not bear their cross. There will be no prize for those who did not run the race and won. Are you making progress in your journey into the kingdom of God. Are you enduring tribulation with Jesus, and overcoming? Are you a victor or a loser?
May Jesus bless you.

The world has become a terrible dangerous place and it has it has become so small that there is nowhere to run for safety. People are treacherous, they cheat and betray each other. Men cannot even trust their own wives any more, and that is why many men are avoiding and staying away from women. You cannot trust anybody.
This is nothing new. We all know how Samson was betrayed by Delilah. So, what is the solution? What shall we and our children do to survive?
We were warned in Jeremiah 17:5-8 "Thus says the LORD,
“Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind
And makes flesh his strength,
And whose heart turns away from the LORD.
6“For he will be like a bush in the desert
And will not see when prosperity comes,
But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness,
A land of salt without inhabitant.
7“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD
And whose trust is the LORD.
8“For he will be like a tree planted by the water,
That extends its roots by a stream
And will not fear when the heat comes;
But its leaves will be green,
And it will not be anxious in a year of drought
Nor cease to yield fruit."
Many Christian believers are familiar with this scripture, but they do not really believe it, because they are subjected to the same troubles and betrayals as the unbelievers. They do not trust in Jesus and do not find refuge in Him, because they do not follow and obey Him.
These people justify themselves and their sin, their unfaithfulness to Jesus. God is not fooled because He repays each man according to their deeds. Let us read further in Jeremiah 17:9-10.
9“The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick;
Who can understand it?
10“I, the LORD, search the heart,
I test the mind,
Even to give to each man according to his ways,
According to the results of his deeds."
Going to church, being religious, confessing Jesus, will not save and protect you. You need to show by your DEEDS that you trust and OBEY Him. Get serious with God. Obey Jesus, repent and be baptized and LIVE in obedience to His words as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. He will give His Holy Spirit in you to teach , guide and protect you, if you TRUST, FOLLOW and OBEY Him.
God protects those trust Him, those who follow and obey Jesus. He keeps them from harm and keeps their feet from stumbling, but all sinners and those who disobey Jesus will perish. You can run, but you cannot hide..
There is only one safe place and that is to trust, follow and obey Jesus. Are you following Jesus or are you living in fear and anxiety because you know that you are doomed?
May Jesus bless you.
