HUMBLE SERVANTS



In this world people strive for status, recognition and fame. Even in
churches there are titles  and high ranking officials,  men
and women of statue and importance. However, in the kingdom of God
those things are of no importance.
Jesus rebuked the
pharisees and was teaching His disciples. He said:
“They love
the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues,
7and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called
Rabbi by men. 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. 11“But
the greatest among you shall be your servant. 12“Whoever exalts
himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be
exalted." Matthew 23:6-12.
We are called to be humble
servants of Jesus,  undeserving, without title or status. Jesus
said to His disciples:7“Which of you, having a slave plowing or
tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from the field,
‘Come immediately and sit down to eat’? 8“But will he not say
to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat, and properly clothe
yourself and serve me while I eat and drink; and afterward you may
eat and drink’? 9“He does not thank the slave because he did the
things which were commanded, does he? 10“So you too, when you do
all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy
slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have done."
Luke  17:7-10.
Are we ready to be undeserving,  humble
servants of Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.

The Gospel of Jesus is about GIVING


God gave LIFE to the world,  by
giving Jesus  Christ.  We read in John 3:16 “For God so
loved the world, that He GAVE His only begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." God
SACRIFICED His Son.
Jesus willingly sacrificed Himself, gave up
His life, to save the world. If we wish to follow Jesus and have
eternal life, then we have to sacrifice ourselves, our own
desires, ambitions, plans, even our life and follow Him. We read in
Romans 12:1,2. "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies
of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice,
acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2And
do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing
of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that
which is good and acceptable and perfect."

We read in 1
Peter 4:1 "Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh,
arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has
suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2so as to live the rest of
the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the
will of God. 3For the time already past is sufficient for you to have
carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of
sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties and
abominable idolatries. 4In all this, they are surprised that you do
not run with them into the same excesses of dissipation, and they
malign you; 5but they will give account to Him who is ready to judge
the living and the dead. 6For the gospel has for this purpose been
preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in
the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will
of God."
Jesus said: “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he
must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. 25“For
whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his
life for My sake will find it. 26“For what will it profit a man if
he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man
give in exchange for his soul? 27“For the Son of Man is going to
come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY
EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS." Matthew 16:24-27.
That is
the cost of eternal life, the price that we have to pay to have
salvation. Just believing in Jesus will not save us if we do not
sacrifice our will, obey Jesus and follow Him until the end.
May
Jesus bless you.

FOOLISH EXPECTATIONS


Many Christian believers are foolish in
their expectations. They are not willing to pay the price, but they
expect to enter heaven and have eternal life, when they die. They are
not willing to follow Jesus but they expect to find the narrow door
into heaven.
You cannot buy or earn salvation, neither can
anybody else work out your salvation for you. Others can pray for you
and encourage you but you have to walk your own walk with
Jesus.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.  He
paid the price for the redemption of the world and He will decide who
will go into heaven and who not. Jesus clearly explained the
conditions for eternal life. His words and commandments are recorded
in Matthew,  Mark, Luke and John. Those are the words of eternal
life. Those who disregard and disobey them will not have
LIFE.
Jesus promised eternal life to those who believe
in Him AND therefore follow and obey Him.
Your relationship
with Jesus is just like every other thing in life. If you do not
invest in it, do not expect to get anything out.
Many Christians
are not willing to do or give anything for Jesus and His kingdom.
They will be terribly disappointed when they die. They will learn too
late that they were deceived by satan and the false prophets, to
disobey Jesus and not to work on their relationship with Jesus,
not to work for His kingdom.
Many Christians work for their
churches, some even build churches. Others preach and evangelize,
even perform miracles in the name of Jesus,  but they have no
relationship with Him. Neither are they working for Him or His
kingdom. They are working for themselves and their own glory. Many
are famous preachers and church leaders.  They expect to receive
great rewards, crowns and accolades in heaven, but they have foolish
expectations.  Jesus warned: “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.
What is our expectation? How much are we investing in our
relationship with Jesus? Are we living and working for Him and His
kingdom? What can we reasonably expect to receive?  As a man
sows, so shall he reap.
Are we seeking the kingdom of God
and sowing our time, our resources,  our work, effort, even our
life, into the kingdom of God?
May Jesus bless you.

THE CHRISTIAN BUBBLE


Most Christian believers live in a
bubble of religious deception, lies and false security. All
Christians reference the Bible as their source  of teaching but
they all have varied versions of the truth. They  all believe
their version to be the best, and some even believe that all
Christians will have eternal life as long as they confess to believe
in Jesus.
The Scriptures testify of the truth, which is
Jesus Christ. All Scripture points to Jesus. He is the way,  the
life and the truth. Scripture as written in the Bible, leads to faith
in Jesus, obedience to Him, and eternal life for those who obey Him.
The words of Jesus,  as recorded in the Bible,  in
Matthew,  Mark,  Luke and  John, are the words of
eternal life.
There is only one truth and one narrow road,
that leads to eternal life, and that is Jesus,  living by His
words  and commandments and follow His guidance, through the
Holy Spirit that He gives in those who seek to follow Him.
The
truth has been  perverted by people who added  their own
teachings and interpretations to what was written in the Scriptures.
All churches have their own teachings, doctrines,  rules and
beliefs, bubbles of lies and deception whereby church members are
encapsulated. Many believers have their own false perceptions. Others
have been  deceived by the words and teachings of other men and
women. All believers have been veiled by lies and layers of
deception. They are living in bubbles of lies and deception.
I was
also deceived by many teachings, perceptions, false beliefs, hoaxes,
false prophecies and my own ignorance. I was also living in false
security of salvation. I also believed I was saved and assured of
eternal life, until I died of a heart attack and found myself on my
way to hell. By my understanding, in my bubble of deception, I was
safe and secure. I was obviously not.
That happened more than 20
years ago. I did not realize how deceived I was and how deceived most
Christians are. Jesus started teaching me, showing me the deception
that is in the world, but more so in churches, how Christians are
being deceived and defrauded by lies from satan.
satan will do
everything to keep you away from Jesus and from following the Holy
Spirit, because Jesus is the WAY and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of
Truth,  that will guide you into all truth, IF you follow
Him.
Jesus gives wisdom, understanding to, and He guides every
person that believes in Him, obeys Him and TRUSTS Him. He is the
Light of the world. Those who follow Him, will not be in
darkness.
That is why most Christians are in darkness, living in a
religious bubble. They are not following Jesus.  They do not
trust Him and they do not know Him, never met Him. Even those who met
Him and were born again do not trust and follow Him. They follow
after people,  churches, their own "interpretation" of
the Bible, that which they choose to  believe. They prefer to
stay in their religious bubble,  rather than to trust Jesus and
follow Him, and that is why they will perish.
You will know the
truth, and the truth will set you free, IF you trust in Jesus,
follow Him and BELIEVE what He tells you.
Do you really want to
know the TRUTH? Then follow Jesus. Get serious with Him. Humble
yourself before Him in prayer. Accept Him. Trust Him and obey Him.
Repent of all sin, stop sinning. Be baptized in water for the washing
off of your sin. Be Holy, sin no more.  Obey the words of
Jesus,  His teachings and commandments as also recorded. In
Matthew,  Mark,  Luke and  John.  Seek
Jesus with all your heart and He will give His Holy Spirit in you,
to teach and guide you.
Come out of the bubble, and trust
Jesus.  Follow Him, and you will know the truth, you will walk
in the Light and He will give you eternal life if you stay with Him
until the end.
May Jesus bless you.

STALE RELIGIOUSNESS



Many Christians are practicing stale
religiousness. Some of them are extremely devoted to their religious
routines, prayers, Bible study, church attendance, charities and
devotions which they religiously practice. They are in a routine or a
groove, and they feel safe and secure in their religiousness. By the
definition and standard of the religiosity that they practice, they
are performing well but there is no spirit, no life and no fruit.
Their hard work and effort is not bringing glory to Jesus, and so it
is fruitless for the kingdom of God.
Their Bible study is like absorbing old
stale bread. It is written that “man will not live from bread alone
but from every word that proceeds from the MOUTH of God.” The
“letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
2 Cor.3:6. It is only when we HEAR from Jesus and are LED by His
Holy Spirit that we can have LIFE in us and have LIFE flowing through
us.
God gave the Israelites manna, bread
from heaven, daily fresh bread. They could only pick up enough for
the day. If they gathered more and tried to keep it for longer it
would go rotten and have worms in it. Jesus is the Bread of Life, the
Word of God. We need to HEAR from Him, GATHER of that Bread every
day, for that day, then we will have LIFE in us and bear fruit for
His kingdom. Without Jesus we can do nothing.
Therefor we pray:”Give us this day,
our daily bread.” Have we heard from Jesus, TODAY? Have we HEARD
His WORDS OF LIFE, Him speaking to us, or did we feed on old stale
bread?
May Jesus bless you.

SPIRITUALLY BLIND AND DEAF


Many Christian believers are spiritually blind and deaf.  They cannot see the kingdom of God
and they cannot hear the voice of God, the reason being that they are
not born again. We read in John 3:1 "Now there was a man of the
Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; 2this man came to
Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You have come
from God as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do
unless God is with him.” 3Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly,
truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the
kingdom of God.”
It is only when a person is born again, that he
can understand the kingdom of God and experience Jesus Christ as Lord
and Master, hear His voice, serve and follow Him.
Many
Christians operate on the level of the intellect and their physical
senses. They believe in what they do not know. They believe in the
Bible and they say they believe in Jesus, but they do not know Him.
Professing to be wise, they have become foolish, because they are
irrational, they believe lies. They believe in an image of Jesus that
they have either made up in their own mind, or that others have
presented to them. They have never met Jesus and never received
revelation from Him. Therefore they do  not know Him, neither do
they HEAR  His voice. They are spiritually deaf. They cannot
understand that others who are born again HEAR Him, because they
expect to hear Him with their physical ears. God is spirit, and He
speaks to His children, those who are born again, in their spirit. He
reveals Himself to them in their spirit.
"Faith comes from
the hearing of the Word of God." Jesus said " “My sheep
hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give
eternal life to them," John 10:27,28. His sheep follow Him
because they HEAR  His  voice.  Many believers do not
HEAR His voice, because they are not born again. Many do not believe.
They trust in their own understanding. They read the Bible and pick
and choose what they want to believe, they listen to other people and
read their books and media, but they do not hear nor listen to Jesus.
They are not His sheep. They are just religious  and deceived.
They think that their  Bible knowledge and church membership
will give them eternal life, but they are not following  Jesus.
They  have no hope of eternal  life. They are spiritually
dead, deaf and blind.
Jesus gives LIFE to those who OBEY  His
words, those who accept Him, repent and are baptized in water and who
seek Him.  He makes them NEW, BORN AGAIN with spiritual ears and
eyes, so that they can hear, see and know the truth. He gives them
understanding of His ways and knowledge of His kingdom. He gives His
Holy  Spirit in them to teach and guide them.  They are not
in darkness because they walk in the Light.
Have you been born again of the Spirit
of God? Do you have spiritual ears and eyes? Do you see the kingdom
of God and hear Jesus speaking to you? Do you follow Him? Are you one
of His sheep?
May Jesus bless you.

THE CHURCH NARRATIVE


The church narrative is an age old plan of satan, to capture souls and make them slaves to the church system,
while making them believe that they are serving God unto salvation.
The church is presented as a vehicle to eternal bliss. The preachers
and clergy are portrayed as facilitators for heavenly passage and
oracles of God, appointed and ordained by God. It is all a lie, a
show, a scam.
Churches are peddling lies and false security,
based on Bible scriptures that have been twisted and applied in such
a way as to support the church narrative.
The church
narrative is a powerful delusion that brainwashes people  and
makes them firm believers and ardent followers of the church and it's
doctrines.  It puts them under bondage and demonizes those who
leave or oppose the church. People are enslaved to church and they
are placed under severe condemnation and persecution if they oppose
or leave the church.
Most of Christianity has been engulfed
by the church narrative and to most professing Christians it is
unthinkable, to be without or outside of a church.
The
church narrative is an evil conspiracy,  a deception that ruins
many souls and blinds them to the truth so that they do not repent
and follow Jesus, but rather follow after the doctrines and teachings
of their church. They submit themselves to the leadership of the
church and seek the approval and acceptance of the church, rather
than the approval of Jesus.
The gospel of Jesus Christ, His words
and commandments,  as also recorded  in Matthew,
Mark, Luke  and John,  makes you free, free from sin and
addictions and free from the narrative of church. The born again
child of God is FREE, free to follow and serve Jesus and the kingdom
of God.
If you want eternal life, you have to escape the narrative
of church, and follow Jesus. Church leads to bondage and damnation.
Jesus leads to eternal life. You cannot follow church and Jesus.
Jesus alone is the way, the truth and the life. Follow Him, and you
will live.
Obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Repent and be
baptized. Live holy and righteousness in obedience to Jesus,
His words as recorded in Matthew,  Mark, Luke and John. Be
filled  with the Holy  Spirit  and follow His
guidance, all the way, until the end, and you will have
LIFE.
Do not get involved in church, because that will be
the end of your walk with  Jesus and your hope of eternal
life.
May Jesus bless you.

THE FALSE GOSPEL FAKE NEWS


The false gospel that is preached in
most churches is not good news,  it is fake news, because it is
all lies. It does not lead to salvation, deliverance and freedom from
sin, but to bondage and deception and slavery to church
institutions.   Neither the preachers nor the believers
have any relationship with God. They are deceived and leading others
to deception,  blind leaders of the blind.
The false gospels
preached in churches are concoctions of Bible verses, held together
with lies, fantasies and doctrines of men. They twist the scriptures
to support their false teachings and promise ignorant gullible people
eternal life and salvation security, while turning them into
followers, donors and financial supporters, slaves of their lying
church institutions.
Millions are being deceived by the
false gospel. They believe it is good news, but they will wake up too
late when they die and stand before Jesus,  and He says to
them:"Go away,  I never knew you, you workers of
unrighteousness."
The true gospel of Jesus  Christ leads
to knowing Him, and Him knowing you, not just assurances based on
Bible verses and doctrines of men. The true Christians, the born
again followers of Jesus,  are His sheep; they know Him, He
knows them, they hear His voice, they follow Him and He gives them
eternal live.
Jesus saves those who accept Him, believe in Him and
obey His words, His teachings and commandments as they are also
recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and  John.
Following
and obeying Jesus leads to a new life, with purpose, sensible,
fruitful, productive,  rewarding and satisfying, filled with
hope, expectation, inner peace and joy.
The gospel of Jesus
Christ is not an ideology. It is not a new set of rules. It does not
mean taking on religion. It is not about Bible  study, religious
indoctrination and complying with certain rules and ceremonies. It is
not a change of mind but a total renewal.
The gospel of Jesus
Christ is powerful. It transforms those who believe and act on it,
from sinners to saints. They become born again, children of God. He
who is in Christ is a new creature, with spiritual senses, ears and
eyes. He sees the kingdom of God and hears the voice of God, he is a
child of God. He LISTENS to God, the Holy Spirit of God, that dwells
in Him. his guidance and confirmation is from God, not from
men.
Fulfillment comes from following and obeying Jesus, not from
men and the things of the world.  Those who are born again
experience Jesus now. Their hope is not on some pie in the sky. They
KNOW and have FELLOWSHIP with Jesus. They are not fascinated and
bewitched by the false fake gospel that is preached in churches. They
follow Jesus and live their lives to glorify Him.
The GOOD
NEWS,  is Jesus  IN and WITH those who know and follow
Him, not the false gospel that is preached in most churches.
Have
you accepted Jesus,  repented and been  baptized in water?
Have you been  born again? Is Jesus living in you, and are you
following Him?
May Jesus bless you.

THE WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE


The words that Jesus spoke are the words of eternal life. 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. 64“But there are
some of you who do not believe.” John 6:63
Jesus
said: “If anyone hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not
judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the
world. 48“He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has
one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the
last day. 49“For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the
Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to
say and what to speak. 50“I know that His commandment is eternal
life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has
told Me.” John 12:47-50.
Jesus
delivered the Sermon on the mount and ended it with these words:
24“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on
them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.
25“And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and
slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been
founded on the rock. 26“Everyone who hears these words of Mine and
does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house
on the sand. 27“The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds
blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its
fall.” Matthew 7:24-27.
Jesus
said: 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. 7“If you abide in Me, and My
words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for
you. 8“My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit,
and so prove to be My disciples. 9“Just as the Father has loved Me,
I have also loved you; abide in My love. 10“If you keep My
commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My
Father’s commandments and abide in His love.” John 15:1-10.
The
words that Jesus spoke and commanded were recorded in Matthew, Mark
, Luke and John. Sadly very few Christians obey and live according
to those words. They rather study and quote other scriptures. They
quote Paul and their famous pastors and Bible teachers. They are
foolish and they will perish, because they do not love, cherish nor
obey the words of Jesus. They are not His disciples. They will not
have eternal life.
Many
Christians reject and slander me because I preach and emphasize the
words of Jesus. They are not rejecting me. They are rejecting Jesus
and eternal life.
Do
you love and obey the words and commandments of Jesus? Are you His
disciple, or are you just a foolish believer, one of those who are
always studying the Bible and never coming to the knowledge of the
truth, never getting to know and follow Jesus?
Read
and obey the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John. Obey them, live by them, and you will get to know Jesus. He
will reveal Himself to you. He will guide and teach you and give you
eternal life if you stay with Him, until the end.
May
Jesus bless you.

NOTHING CAN HOLD YOU BACK


Nothing can hold you back if you really want to follow Jesus, because Jesus
came to set the captives free. Many believers are in bondage of sin,
they cannot stop sinning and therefore they cannot follow Jesus.
They are slaves to sin. Jesus said: “Truly, truly, I say to you,
everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. 35“The slave does not
remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. 36“So if
the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:34-36.
You
can be free from the bondage of sin, the lusts of the flesh and of
addictions, if you want to be free. Jesus can and will set you free
if you ask Him, but most people enjoy the pleasures of sin and the
lusts of the flesh. They do not want to stop doing those things. Even
if Jesus sets them free they go back to sin. They have no desire for
holiness.
Without
holiness no one will see the Lord. The unrighteous will not inherit
the kingdom of God. Sinners and sinning Christians have no fellowship
with Jesus, even if they are preachers and prophets. 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.
No
sin or any other things can hold you back if you really want to
follow Jesus. You will have no excuse when you stand before Him in
judgment. Jesus will set you free and give you all the power that you
need, to follow Him and do what is pleasing to Him. He will not force
you, but if you don't want to follow and obey Him, and be holy, He
will refuse you. He will say to you: DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE
LAWLESSNESS.
Do
you really want to follow Jesus?
May
Jesus bless you.

GOD'S HOUSE


Many wrongly refer to church buildings
as the house of God. We read in Acts 7:48-50 “the Most High does
not dwell in houses made by human hands; as the
prophet says:‘HEAVEN IS MY THRONE, AND EARTH IS THE FOOTSTOOL
OF MY FEET; WHAT KIND OF HOUSE WILL YOU BUILD FOR ME?’
says the Lord, ‘OR WHAT PLACE IS THERE FOR MY REPOSE? 50‘WAS
IT NOT MY HAND WHICH MADE ALL THESE THINGS?’
Where then is the HOUSE OF GOD? We read
in Hebrews 3:6 “But Christ is faithful as the
Son over God’s house. And we are His house, if we
hold firmly to our confidence and the hope of
which we boast.”
Those who are born again, children of
God, they are His house. The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians
3:16,17 “ 16Do you not know that you are a temple of God
and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17If any man
destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of
God is holy, and that is what you are.”
The apostle Paul also further wrote in
1 Corinthians 6:15-20 “Do you not know that your bodies are members
of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them
members of a prostitute? May it never be! 16Or do you not know
that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with
her? For He says, “THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.” 17But
the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with
Him. 18Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man
commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own
body. 19Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the
Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are
not your own? 20For you have been bought with a price: therefore
glorify God in your body.”
We are the house of God, if we have
invited Jesus into our lives and accepted Him as Lord. We must keep
His temple clean and holy, free from sin and immorality, dedicated
unto Him, reserved for His purpose. We must take heed tot the
warning:”If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy
him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are.” 1
Corinthians 3:17.
Are we worthy of Jesus? Are we keeping
His temple pure and holy?
May Jesus bless you.

CHRISTIANS WANT TO BE PAMPERED AND ENTERTAINED





Very few Christians are serious about following Jesus. Even fewer want to
serve Him and work for the kingdom of God. Most of them are selfish,
self serving, arrogant, self righteous, lovers of pleasure and
haters of God. They practice a humanistic religion that satisfies
their ego and their flesh, but they disregard and disobey the words
of Jesus, which are the only words that lead to eternal life. They
are on the broad road that leads to destruction, and because there
are so many of them they feel safe and happy in their delusion. They
do not realize that they are heading for hell.
Churches
cater for the desires of the worldly false Christians, providing for
their lust after self gratification with facilities, amenities,
media, doctrines and false promises of eternal salvation. The false
Christians love lies and therefore glorify lying preachers, Christian
magicians and lying false prophets, that promise them security of
salvation and prosperity, while robbing them of their hard earned
money.
They
are enchanted, placed under spells, by the ridiculous doctrines that
are preached by the churches and false prophets, even when they know
in their hearts that it cannot be true. Nobody with common sense will
accept a doctrine like, ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED. Nobody in his right
mind would believe that SALVATION IS FREE or that Jesus PAID FOR YOUR
SINS, PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE. No sober person will believe that you
only need to believe in Jesus to have salvation, which is guaranteed
even though you go and commit the most horrific crimes after
“accepting" Him. Nobody in his right mind would believe in an
unjust God, that would send unbelievers to hell but excuse those who
believe even though they are wicked? Which thinking individual will
believe in pre-election as preached by the Calvinists? Which sane
person would support and pay vast amounts of money to such lying,
deceiving preachers, false prophets and Christian magicians, other
than those who have been bewitched by their lies and fantasies ,
those who love lies and hate the truth.
The
wages of sin is death. The soul that sins will die, even if he
believed in Jesus, even if he was a preacher, even though he cast out
demons in the name of Jesus, even if he fed the poor and paid tithes
to the church.
The
only way to have eternal life is to follow and obey Jesus, to live
according to His words, as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John. Repent and be baptized in water for the forgiveness of your
sins. SIN NO MORE, BE HOLY. Seek Jesus in prayer and He will give
His Holy Spirit in you to teach and guide you, so that you can know
Him, follow and obey Him, and have eternal life. Seek Jesus every
day, listen to Him, obey, serve and follow Him until the end and you
will have eternal life.
Don't
go to church, like the false Christians. Be a disciple of Jesus
Christ. Seek Him and you will find Him. Deny yourself, pick up your
cross every day and follow Jesus. It will not be easy. Without
Jesus and without Him helping you, you will not make it into heaven.
Follow Jesus and stay with Him, until the end.
May
Jesus bless you.

A STRONG DELUSION


Most Christian believers are under a strong delusion. They are under
religious delusions that are extremely dangerous because they believe
lies and false teachings that they accept for truth. It is virtually
impossible to bring them to the truth because they have religious
spirits, demons that direct and control them. This is true about all
religious people, of all religions and beliefs, including atheists.
They are resistant to the truth. That is also the reason why they
will not trust and follow Jesus. They trust in their doctrines, that
are supported by Bible verse, that have been distorted and
misapplied.
The
only words that lead to eternal life are the words of Jesus, if you
obey them. Jesus said: “the words that I have spoken to you are
spirit and are life.” John 6:63. Religious people skip over the
words of Jesus and disregard them in favor of other scriptures, and
the doctrines of men.
It
is only when we obey and apply the words and commandments of Jesus
that we get to know Him, are born again, become children of God, gain
understanding of the truth, and have the hope of eternal life. Jesus
alone is the way, the life and the truth. He said: “Therefore
everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be
compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25“And the
rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed
against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded
on the rock. 26“Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not
act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the
sand. 27“The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and
slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”
Matthew 7:24-27.
The
words of Jesus were recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
Those are the words of eternal life. All other doctrines and
teachings, that do not point to obedience to Jesus are vain,
distraction and deception. Jesus said: ”BUT IN VAIN DO THEY
WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.” Matthew
15:9.
Most
Christians are not born-again and do not see the kingdom of God.
They do not recognize, serve and honor Jesus as Lord. They do not
know Him. They know about Him and have a false perception of Him.
They do not know His voice. They are not His sheep. They do not
follow Him and they will not have eternal life. Even most of those
who experienced Jesus for real and were born-again, do not follow
Him. They were caught in a strong delusion, because they did not seek
the truth. They became religious and follow after men, and false
doctrines.
Jesus
alone is the way, the life and the truth. If you seek Him, obey His
words and keep on seeking Him, He will guide you into all truth. He
will open your eyes and ears, to see and hear and He will give you
understanding of the truth. He will take the blinkers of religious
deception off your eyes and reveal the truth to you, IF YOU TRUST
Him. Most believers do not trust Jesus and therefore they remain
deluded and become even more deluded, because they do not seek the
truth. They just want security of salvation, that the lying, cheating
religious leaders promise them, through their man-man made carnal
doctrines.
Most
Christians trust more in the doctrines of men, their writings, books,
teachings and Bible commentaries than in Jesus. They run after
famous preachers, attend their conferences, buy their books, tapes
and paraphernalia, but they will not pray and ask Jesus for guidance.
They regard the Holy Spirit as some fuzzy feeling and reject Him,
despise Him. They are carnal people who trust in their physical
senses and intellect, and therefor they do not seek Jesus, nor His
Spirit to guide them. Because of their corrupt hearts God has given
them over to a strong delusion. Because they are dishonest, not
seeking the truth, but seeking falsehood, they have been given to
false teachings, like OSAS (once saved always saved), pre-election,
the false grace gospel, so that they will not repent and stop
sinning. They are vile, shameless unrepentant sinners, not holy
saints that follow and obey Jesus. They follow after the false
teachers, wolves in sheep's clothing and confess to be all sinners,
while they believe they have salvation. They are under a strong
delusion and they are on their way to hell.
All
the churches in this world are under the delusion. Their leaders and
preachers are taught by the same seminaries, and Bible schools. They
only ordain and hire clergy that were trained by their
indoctrination centers, Bible Schools, and who support their false
doctrines. The church members and church goers are deluded. They
serve and follow the church leadership, not Jesus Christ.
The
true followers of Jesus, His sheep, who hear His voice and who
follow Him in truth, those who walk in the Light and are lead by the
Holy Spirit, they are hated, rejected and persecuted by the
churches and the deluded false Christians. They are not accept by
the world.
If
you follow Jesus and are part of His kingdom, you will fit in
nowhere, but you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
The whole world is running in many directions, but they are all lost
and heading for destruction. They are happy in their delusion but all
their plans lead to nothing. In the end they were fools. They die and
perish in hell.
There
is only one way to eternal life and that is Jesus, to follow and obey
Him. Are you on the straight, narrow road, following Jesus or are
you on the broad unrestrained road to destruction? Are you religious?
Are you a church goer? Are you deluded, or do you know Jesus and are
you following Him?
May
Jesus bless you.

MANY WILL FALL



Many profess to be Christians and confess that they believe in Jesus.
They are confident that they have salvation and they say they trust
in Jesus but when tribulation comes and when the storms of life come
against them, their faith is shattered. When trials and temptation
come against them they are powerless, they give in and are
defeated,without hope and without direction..
Many
fall because they never truly learned to trust in Jesus. Their faith
was based on hearing from other people, preachers and even from true
followers of Jesus. Their faith might have been based on Bible
verses. However, they never applied what they heard and learned. They
never OBEYED the teachings and commandments of Jesus, as they were
also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
After
Jesus had delivered the sermon on the mount He said: 24“Therefore
everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be
compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25“And the
rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed
against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded
on the rock. 26“Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not
act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the
sand. 27“The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and
slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”
Matthew 7:24-27.
It
is only when the believer OBEYS the words and commandments of Jesus,
that his faith comes into ACTION. Faith without works is dead. Faith
without action proves nothing. Faith only grows with practice.
Practice makes perfect. The faith of many is weak and therefor fails,
because it was never practiced, tested and proven. Your faith muscles
only develop with training and continued practice. If you are lazy or
unfaithful you become weak and vulnerable, and will surely be
destroyed by the enemy.
Many
believers are like those who love to go to the gym to watch others
train. They love to watch Christian movies, and listen to the
testimonies of others, but they themselves never become active
followers of Jesus. They have many versions of the Bible and great
libraries of Christian books, writings, tapes and paraphernalia. They
are involved in endless conferences and Bible studies. They are into
Christian fellowship and church, house church and worship. All those
things might be very pleasant and religious. They might have an
appearance of godliness but they are unfruitful and useless if they
never start obeying and following Jesus.
Being
a Christian and having eternal life is about one thing only, and that
is to be one of Jesus‘ sheep, who hear His voice, who is known by
Him, and who follows Him. Jesus said: 27“My sheep hear My voice,
and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal life to
them,” John 10:27. It is about OBEDIENCE, TRUST and OBEDIENCE
all the way until the end.
If
you are not willing to repent, turn away from all sin, turn from
following after your own ambitions, plans and desires, how can you
follow Jesus? If you are not even willing to be baptized in water, as
Jesus commanded, how will you obey Him in greater things? If you do
not trust Jesus more than your own abilities, your own mind, your own
interpretation of the Bible, how will you trust Him when He speaks to
you? How will you follow Him if He calls you? If you trust more in
psychology than in Jesus, how will you follow Him? If He speaks to
you, will you run to the psychologist and tell him you are hearing
voice, or will you say:”Speak Lord, Your servant is listening?
Faith
comes by the hearing of the Word of God. " Will you BELIEVE and
EXERCISE your FAITH when you HEAR Jesus speaking to you? His sheep
hear His voice and they follow Him. Are you one of His sheep?
Will
Jesus speak to you? He will if you are serious about following Him.
If you call out to Him to save you from your sins and accept Him, to
be your Lord and Master, He will save you. He will wipe out your past
sins, and empower you to become a child of God. He will make you NEW
inside, BORN AGAIN with the HOPE of ETERNAL LIFE, if, you OBEY Him,
TRUST Him and stay with Him until the end.
IF
you OBEY the teachings and commandments of Jesus, He will disclose
Himself to you, He will reveal Himself to you, speak to you and guide
you. We read in John 14:21 Jesus said: “He who has My commandments
and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be
loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to
him.”
If
you OBEY Jesus, repent, are baptized in water and live in obedience
to His Words and Commandments (as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke
and John), He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit, He and the Father
will come and dwell with you. He will speak to you, guide you, teach
you, you will come into fellowship, communion, with Him. You will
become His sheep, who HEAR His voice and are able to follow Him.
Most
believers never get that far in their relationship with Jesus. They
stay spiritual infants, that never grow to maturity. They FALL, they
are destroyed by satan. Their house comes crushing down because they
did not build on the firm foundation, OBEDIENCE to the Words and
commandments of Jesus They believed the false gospels that are
preached in churches. They built their house on the sand.
Will
you STAND? Will your faith hold? Will you overcome the evil one?
Will you ENDURE with Jesus until the end? Are you one of His sheep,
who HEAR His voice and FOLLOW Him every day? Without Jesus we can
do nothing. Are you WITH Jesus?
Will
you stand, or will you fall?
May
Jesus bless you.

WALKING IN VICTORY


The born again child of God is empowered to live in victory over the
flesh and the world. The power does not lie in the person himself,
but in the Spirit that dwells in him, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of
Christ. Many claim to be born again but they are not victorious. They
are tossed around by every new teaching and they do not have victory
over the devil and the flesh.
If
we follow Jesus and are guided by the Holy Spirit, the devil and the
flesh will have no control over us. The devil controls, deceives and
destroys the world through lies. He leads people down the road of
destruction because they listen to him.
Jesus
is the Good Shepherd His sheep hear His voice and they follow Him.
He guides and protects them, and He gives them eternal life. Jesus
cares for all His sheep, but not all of His sheep listen to Him and
follow Him, and that is why they are being destroyed. They listen to
other people, they follow after preachers and churches, the wolves
in sheep’s clothing.
Jesus
gives His Holy Spirit in everyone who seeks and obeys Him, who
repents and is baptized, who obeys His teachings and commandments as
recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Jesus guides His own
sheep. He did not appoint other shepherds. Most Christian believers
are not His sheep, they were never born again. Others were born
again but they are not following Jesus and that is why they are
deceived, defeated and destroyed by satan.
Are
you WALKING IN VICTORY? Are you following Jesus, the Good Shepherd,
or are you following after strangers and being destroyed?


When
last did you read the 23rd Psalm and does it have real meaning to
you? Is Jesus, your Lord and Shepherd?
1The
LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
2He makes me lie down in green
pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.



3He restores my soul;
He
guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.



 4Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for
Thou are with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.



5Thou preparest a table before
me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over.



6Surely goodness and mercy
shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the
house of the LORD for ever.



May
Jesus bless you.

CAN YOU STOP SINNING IN YOUR OWN POWER?


The whole world is in the power of the evil one, because of sin. The
reason for sin and corruption is lust. People sin when they follow
their own sinful desires. People become addicted and demon possessed
when they open the door to demons through sin, watching TV,
pornography, reading evil books, like Harry Potter, video games, and
substance abuse. Then they become compelled and driven by evil forces
that seek to destroy them. They lose control of themselves. They are
slaves to sin and cannot escape. The wages of sin is death. The soul
that sins will die. As long as you keep on sinning you are doomed and
destined for hell and destruction.
 
That
is why Jesus came, to take away the sins of the world, to set the
captives free, those who are bound by sin. We read in John 1:29, John
the Baptist saw Jesus coming to him and said:"Behold, the
Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” 
 
Only
Jesus can set you free from the bondage of sin. We read in John 8:34
Jesus said: “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin
is the slave of sin. 35“The slave does not remain in the house
forever; the son does remain forever. 36“So if the Son makes you
free, you will be free indeed. If the Son of God, Jesus, sets you
free. You will not be a slave to sin any more, you will be FREE from
the bondage of sin.
 
If
you come to Jesus and ACCEPT Him, He will set you free and make you
NEW inside, a child of God. We read in John 1:12 “But as many as
received Him, to them He gave the power 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.”
You MUST be BORN AGAIN.
 
If
you RECEIVE Jesus, EMBRACE Him, ACCEPT Him as you Lord and Master,
COME TO Him, bow down before Him, SUBMIT yourself to Him; PRAY, cry
out to Him to SAVE you, He will save you from your sin. He will set
you free from the bondage of sin, but you need to stay with Jesus and
OBEY Him, to stay free.
 
Repent,
turn away from sin and from your previous lifestyle of worldliness
and going after the desires of the flesh.
 Follow
after Jesus,  stop sinning, live holy. Be baptized in water
for the forgiveness of your sins. Live according to
the words of 
 Jesus as they were
recorded in Matthew,  Mark,  Luke and John. 
 
If
you turn away from Jesus and go back to sin, you will
become MORE ENSLAVED than before you met Jesus, you will be
worse off than before. That is why many Christians
are wicked 
 sinners who are
unable to stop sinning. No wonder that the writer of Hebrews
wrote
 in Hebrews 6:4 “For
in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted
of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy
Spirit, 5and
have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to
come, 6and then
have
fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance,
since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to
open shame. 7For
ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and brings forth
vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is also tilled, receives
a blessing from God; 8but
if it yields thorns and thistles, it is worthless and close to being
cursed, and it ends up being burned.
” 
It
is however not the end of the line for those who have back-slided.
There is hope
 if such a person truly
repents, as we see in the parable of the
 prodigal
son
 in Luke 15:11-32. If
you are a prodigal son or daughter, RUN back to the
Father's
 house before
it might be forever too late.
 
Sinners
will NOT enter heaven, if they do not repent and stop sinning.
Without holiness no
 one will see the
Lord.
 As long as you keep sinning, you
are DEAD in sin and DOOMED to damnation.
 
You
can only stay FREE FROM SIN as long as you stay with Jesus. Without
Jesus we can do nothing.  If you sin and end up in
hell, you only have yourself to blame, because you rejected
Jesus and went away from Him. 
 
Run
to Jesus. Ask Him to save you. Then obey and stay
 with
Him. Be holy and SIN NO MORE.
 
May
Jesus bless you.

PERSISTENCE DILIGENCE AND OBEDIENCE


Salvation is not just about believing  in Jesus  Christ, it is a journey. Jesus
invites everybody to follow Him and have eternal life,  but
very few stay with  Jesus and endure with Him until the
end. It requires PERSISTENCE and DILIGENCE to stay with
Jesus until the end.
 You will have to
use all your strength and you will have to hang on to Jesus
for dear life, because without Him you will not be able to make
it.
 Your journey with Jesus starts when you accept Him as you Lord and Master,
and from then onwards you have to submit to Him and obey
Him, every step of the way, until the end. Nobody can snatch you
out of His  hand, but if you decide to leave Him or
disobeying Him, He will not stop you.
 Jesus
will not accommodate your opinion, your preferences or
feelings. You either obey and follow  Him or you part ways with
Him, in which case, you are heading for destruction. You
cannot follow Jesus if you do not absolutely trust and obey
Him.
 
First
you have to REPENT  and BE BAPTIZED. To repent  means to
TURN from SIN and from your previous way of living, going after your
selfish desires, ambitions and the pleasures of sin. You cannot
follow Jesus if you are still going after those things. You have to
give up your rights and privileges of self-determination. You have to
totally submit to Jesus and DIE to SELF so that you can LIVE FOR
Jesus and follow Him. Once you have REPENTED you have to be baptized
in water for the remission, the cancellation of debt,
 of
your past sins. You cannot follow Jesus, if you have not been
baptized for the remission of your sins.
 Then you have to
live holy and sin no more.
You have to live in obedience to the teachings and commandments of
Jesus, HIS WORDS, as they were also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke
and John. 
Jesus promised the baptism in the Holy Spirit to those who wish to
follow Him and have therefor obeyed Him, repented and been baptized.
The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, will come and dwell IN THEM
and GUIDE them so that they can FOLLOW Jesus and DO what He requires
of them, the WORKS that He has prepared for them to do. You cannot
follow Jesus, if you have not received the Holy Spirit. “Those who
are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
Romans 8:14. 
If we wish to follow Jesus and have eternal life, WE have to
continuously SEEK Him in PRAYER. We have to seek the baptism in the
Holy Spirit so that we can experience the indwelling presence and
guidance of Jesus, through the Holy Spirit in us. We have to live
holy and reserve ourselves to Jesus. If we should sin and disobey
Him, we will GRIEVE the Holy Spirit and He might stop speaking to us.
We have to seek His guidance and obey Him. “Without faith it is
impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe
that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who
diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6. 
Our faith will be tested. Our loyalty to Jesus will be tested. Our
obedience and perseverance will be tested. We have to be persistent
in all circumstances and never give up, no matter what our
circumstances are. We must be faithful in our devotion to Jesus,
praying, seeking Him, keep our mind on Him, expecting Him. Listening
to Him and staying tuned in to Him. He will fill us with His thoughts
as we desire and yearn for Him. He will not force Himself on us. We
have to diligently seek Him, trust in Him, expect Him, even though
things around us do not look favorable or do not work out as we hoped
or expected.. 
Jesus will always be with us. He will not leave us, even in sickness,
pain, misfortune, disappointment, heartbreak, sadness, Jesus is
there. If we stay focused on Him, we will recognize His hand and hear
His voice. He will teach and guide us in many ways. Often things will
not work out the way that we hoped or expected. Keep trusting Him. He
knows what He is doing, and He makes all things work together for
good, for those who love Him and seek Him, because they are called
for His purpose. He will give us understanding and wisdom, if we stay
with Him. He will give us the power to endure and pass every test so
that we can win the prize of eternal life in the end. 
We need to be persistent, diligent and obedient, never give up.
Endure until the end. There is a prize for over-comers. We have to
stay with Jesus until the end, because without Him, we cannot make
it.  Without Jesus, we can do nothing. 
Have you started the journey, following Jesus? Are you following and
obeying every day? Are you persistent and diligent, seeking and doing
His will? Do you still have the hope of eternal life? 
May Jesus bless you.

WILL YOU WORK FOR JESUS?



Will you work for Jesus? Will you serve Him? Jesus is Lord. The kingdom
of heaven belongs to Him. He will decide who will go in there and who
not. It is not in vain that Jesus told the parable of the talents.
We read in Matthew 25:14-30.
14“For it
is just like a man about to go on a journey, who
called his own slaves and entrusted his possessions to them. 15“To
one he gave five talents, to another, two, and to another, one, each
according to his own ability; and he went on his
journey. 16“Immediately the one who had received the five
talents went and traded with them, and gained five more
talents. 17“In the same manner the one who had
received the two talents gained two more. 18“But
he who received the one talent went away, and dug a
hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.
      19“Now
after a long time the master of those slaves came and settled
accounts with them. 20“The one who had received the five
talents came up and brought five more talents, saying, ‘Master, you
entrusted five talents to me. See, I have gained five more
talents.’21“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and
faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you
in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’
      22“Also
the one who had received the two talents came up and said,
‘Master, you entrusted two talents to me. See, I have gained two
more talents.’ 23“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good
and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put
you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’
      24“And
the one also who had received the one talent came up and said,
‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow
and gathering where you scattered no seed. 25‘And I was
afraid, and went away and hid your talent in the ground. See, you
have what is yours.’
      26“But
his master answered and said to him, ‘You wicked, lazy slave, you
knew that I reap where I did not sow and gather where I scattered
no seed. 27‘Then you ought to have put my money in the
bank, and on my arrival I would have received my money back
with interest. 28‘Therefore take away the talent from him, and
give it to the one who has the ten talents.’
      29“For
to everyone who has, more shall be given, and he will have
an abundance; but from the one who does not have, even what he does
have shall be taken away. 30“Throw out the worthless slave
into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and
gnashing of teeth.”
That is what will
happen to born again children of God that are unfruitful. They will
end up in hell.
Are we using our
talents, our abilities, our resources and time for the kingdom of
God? Are we serving Jesus and bringing souls to Him? Or are we hiding
our talents, wasting them on the things of the world?
Will we work for
Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.

ARE YOU PREPARED TO DIE?


“Man is appointed to die once,and after that to face judgment.”
Hebrews 9:27. We will all die and we will all face judgment. Nobody
will escape. We will be judged by our DEEDS. Nobody knows when their
last day will be. It is therefor wise to always be prepared and to
live every day as though it is our last day.
Jesus Christ Himself is the final judge
of all men. We read in 2 Corinthians 5:10 “For we must all appear
before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be
recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done,
whether good or bad.” We also read the words of the apostle Paul in
Romans 2:6-11 “God...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.”
We read in Revelation 20:11-15 “Then
I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose
presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for
them. 12And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing
before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was
opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged
from the things which were written in the books, according to their
deeds. 13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and
death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were
judged, every one of them according to their deeds. 14Then
death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second
death, the lake of fire. 15And if anyone’s name was not found
written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”
Many people will die today but very few
are prepared to die and face judgment. Many choose not to believe the
truth and prepare. Others are complacent and believe that they still
have much time left. Many are deceived by false doctrines. They are
just religious. They believe in Jesus for salvation but they do not
know nor obey Him. They believe that they are saved by grace, they
keep on sinning and live worldly lives but they will end up in hell
if they do not repent and obey Jesus. Jesus warned that He will send
many believers to hell. He said:”15“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.


All sinners and sinning believers will end up in hell. Being
religious and just believing in Jesus will not save you. We have to
live holy and righteously. In obedience to Jesus.


The words of Jesus are the words of eternal life. Those who
disobey Jesus will perish. His words are recorded in Matthew, Mark,
Luke and John. Jesus said:“Therefore everyone who hears these words
of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his
house on the rock. 25“And the rain fell, and the floods came,
and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it
did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26“Everyone
who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like
a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27“The rain
fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against
that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” Matthew 7:24-27.


Are you ready to die? Are you ready to face judgment? Obey Jesus,
repent and be baptized, be holy and live in obedience to the words
and commandments of Jesus, and He will reveal himself to you. You
will know Him and He will know you. You will have the hope of eternal
life. Do not delay. Get right with Jesus and stay right with Him,
until the end. We don't know when our time will come. Always be
ready.


May Jesus bless you.

HAVE YOU FOUND JESUS?


Many people believe in Jesus but they
have never found Him. Many believe in a false gospel, a gospel that
says that you only need to believe in Jesus to have eternal life.
They confess to believe in Jesus and think they are saved, but they
are deceived, because they never met Jesus and they do not know Him.
Neither does He know them. Many of those are professing
Christians,  even preachers and church leaders. Jesus warned:
“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 7:22-23.
Salvation is not just an intellectual exercise,
or a ritual where you go through a series of steps and then you are
guaranteed eternal life. The unrighteous, sinners,  cannot enter
the kingdom of God. Only saints can enter. You need to be born again
to enter the kingdom of God. You must first become a saint.
Only
Jesus can make you new. "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is
a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have
come." 2 Corinthians 5:17. To be in Christ you need to accept
Jesus,  to be your Lord and Master submit yourself to Him, obey
and serve  Him.
In order for  you to be born
again, you must die first. You must die to sin through being baptized
in water. We read in Romans 6:3-11. "all of us who have been
baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?
4Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death,
so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the
Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. 5For if we have
become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we
shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6knowing this,
that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of
sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to
sin; 7for he who has died is freed from sin.8Now if we have died with
Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9knowing that
Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again;
death no longer is master over Him. 10For the death that He died, He
died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to
God. 11Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to
God in Christ Jesus.
    
12Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey
its lusts, 13and do not go on presenting the members of your body to
sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God
as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of
righteousness to God."
You must be born again of water,
through baptism,  and of the Spirit, by being baptized in the
Holy Spirit,  by Jesus; after being baptized in water.
John
the Baptist said:“I baptized you with water; but He will baptize
you with the Holy Spirit.” Mark  1:8.
That is why on the
day of Pentecost Peter said : “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.”Acts 2:38,39.
Jesus gives
eternal life to those who are born again, those who have become His
sheep, who hear His voice and follow Him. They are led by the Holy
Spirit. "Those who are being led by the Spirit of God,
they are the sons of God. "Romans 8:14. They are the children of
God.
Jesus  reveals Himself to those who accept Him and
obey Him, those who repent and are baptized. He baptizes them in the
Holy Spirit. They are born again, they are His sheep, who hear His
voice and follow Him. He gives them eternal life, if they follow Him
until the very end.
Have you found Jesus? Have you been born again
of water and the Spirit? Are you one of His sheep? Do you HEAR His
voice and do you follow  Him?
May Jesus bless you.

HEAR FROM JESUS NOT FROM OTHERS



Jesus is ALIVE. His sheep HEAR His
VOICE and they FOLLOW Him. Sadly very few professing Christians are
His sheep because very few HEAR Him. Salvation is not just about
confessing that you believe in Jesus. Most people who believe in
Jesus are not His sheep, they do not know Him and they will not have
eternal life.
Every truly born-again child of God has
the ABILITY to HEAR His VOICE. You cannot HEAR His voice neither SEE
nor enter the kingdom of God if you are not-born again. Being a
Christian does not mean being of the Christian faith. It means that
you are a child of God, who KNOWS His voice. Most professing
Christians are spiritually blind and deaf. They were never been born
again. Many of them never met Jesus and most of those who did, do not
hear nor follow Him. They follow after other people, preachers,
myths, theories, beliefs and false doctrines.
Those who are being led by the Spirit
of God, they are the children of God. Salvation comes by MEETING with
Jesus after believing in Him and then FOLLOWING Him. You meet Jesus
on your knees, if you kneel before Him, to humble yourself before Him
and accept Him as your Lord and Master. If you truly believe that He
is Lord and pray to Him, call on Him from your heart, He will save
you. You will enjoy peace and joy like never before in your life. He
will make you a child of God, but then you have to obey and follow
Him, or else you will not stay saved. If you do not obey Jesus and do
not stay with Him you will spiritually wither and die.
That is what happens to many believers,
because they do not stay with Jesus. That is what Jesus illustrated
with the parable of the sower. We read in Matthew 13:18“Hear then
the parable of the sower. 19“When anyone hears the word of the
kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and
snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is the one on
whom seed was sown beside the road. 20“The one on whom seed
was sown on the rocky places, this is the man who hears the word and
immediately receives it with joy; 21yet he has no firm root
in himself, but is only temporary, and when affliction or
persecution arises because of the word, immediately he falls
away. 22“And the one on whom seed was sown among the thorns,
this is the man who hears the word, and the worry of the world and
the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, and it becomes
unfruitful. 23“And the one on whom seed was sown on the good
soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who
indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty,
and some thirty.”
The believers who stay with Jesus, obey
and follow Him are the ones who bear fruit and who will have eternal
life. They are the ones who OBEY the gospel of Jesus Christ, who
repent and are baptized, who receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit
and who follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Without Jesus,
without the guidance of His Spirit we cannot bear fruit, we can do
nothing.
Jesus gives His Holy Spirit in those
who OBEY Him, who repent and are baptized and who obey His commands,
His teachings as also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Jesus
said:”the Holy Spirit will teach you all things,” John 14:26
“the Spirit of Truth... 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.” John 16:13,14.
Most believers never receive the Holy
Spirit and that is why they do not HEAR the VOICE of Jesus and do
not FOLLOW Him. Some have received the Holy Spirit, but they do not
LISTEN, to Him. They ask advice from other people, from pastors and
preachers and self appointed spiritual leaders. They follow their own
minds and make assumptions from Bible verses. They do not LISTEN and
hear from Jesus through the Holy Spirit.
You must HEAR from Jesus, to be able to
follow Him, bear fruit, be pleasing to Him and have eternal life. We
can only be pleasing to Jesus and be fruitful for the kingdom of God
if we HEAR from Jesus and OBEY Him, follow His guidance.
Seek Jesus, pray, meet with Him, obey
His words, repent and be baptized. Ask Him and He will give His Holy
Spirit in you to teach and guide you in all things. Follow the
guidance of the Holy Spirit, until the end and you will have eternal
life.
Do not follow after other people. Do
not ask their advice or guidance. Stay with Jesus seek His guidance.
Trust Him and He will guide you, all the way, until the end. Jesus
alone is the way, the truth and the life. Follow Him and He will give
you eternal life.


May Jesus bless you.

MEETING JESUS WILL CHANGE YOU


Many people believe in Jesus and even
call themselves Christians, but they have never met the risen Jesus.
They believe in Jesus based on reading the Bible or through the
testimony of other people. They are merely believers, not followers
of Jesus. They cannot follow Him because they do not know Him. Most
of these people are sinners and they cannot stop sinning and be holy.
They are in bondage of sin. They are not children of God, because
they were never born-again. If you meet Jesus, you will be a changed
person.
The apostle Paul persecuted the
followers of Jesus, but then he met Jesus and he was totally changed.
He was born-again. Paul met the resurrected Jesus, after He had risen
from the dead. We read in Acts 9:1-6 “1Now Saul, still breathing
threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the
high priest,2and asked for letters from him to the synagogues at
Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, both men and
women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. 3As he was
traveling, it happened that he was approaching Damascus, and suddenly
a light from heaven flashed around him; 4and he fell to the
ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you
persecuting Me?” 5And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” And
He said, “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, 6but
get up and enter the city, and it will be told you what you must do.”
You can read the rest of Acts 9 to see
what further happened. Paul went on to follow Jesus, suffer much
persecution for Him, received many revelations from Him and died as a
martyr. He also wrote most of the New Testament books.
If you meet Jesus and accept Him, you
will also be born-again. You will be changed to be like Jesus, if you
follow Him. You will not be like Paul, you will be like Jesus and you
will do the works that Jesus prepared for you to do. You will be the
person that Jesus wants you to be.
If you meet Jesus and accept Him, you
will obey Him and do as Paul did. Paul prayed, humbled himself before
Jesus, and he was baptized in water and filled with the Holy Spirit..
Paul did not go back to his old life. He started witnessing,
proclaiming Jesus. If you have met Jesus and accepted Him, repented
and were baptized in water, received the Holy Spirit and are serious
about having eternal life, you will follow the guidance of the Holy
Spirit.
Jesus is the only way. There is no
other way to have salvation. You have to meet Him, know Him follow
and obey Him, to have eternal life. Jesus said:”My sheep hear My
voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal
life to them” John 10:27,28.
You meet Jesus ON YOUR KNEES, PRAYING.
Go on your KNEES, humble yourself before Jesus in prayer. Call out to
Him to SAVE you FROM YOUR SIN, to set you free from the bondage of
your sin. The wages of sin is death. Your past sin will cause you to
end up in hell, if you are not forgiven and delivered of the bondage
of sin so that you can sin no more and be holy. Without holiness no
one will enter heaven, without holiness no one will see the Lord.
Call out to Jesus to take away the
guilt of your past sin and to save you from your sin, to make you
free from the bondage of sin. Jesus said:”Truly, truly, I say to
you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. “And the
slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain
forever. “If therefore the Son shall make you free, you shall
be free indeed.” John 8:34-36.
If you are serious about following
Jesus and having eternal life, you will meet Jesus, right there on
your knees. Then you need to follow Him. Turn from sin. Don't go back
to any sin. Sin no more. Be baptized in water for the washing off of
your sin and ask Jesus to baptize you in the Holy Spirit that He
promised to those who obey Him. The Holy Spirit, Christ in you, will
guide you into all truth IF you LISTEN to Him. You will become one of
Jesus' sheep, who HEAR His voice, but you have to FOLLOW HIM until
the end to have eternal life.
If you keep on LISTENING, OBEYING and
FOLLOWING Him, you will have the HOPE of eternal life, but if you
turn from Him, ignore Him, go back to sin and follow after your own
desires and lusts, you will perish.
Have you met Jesus? Have you been
CHANGED? Did Jesus set you free from sin? Are you born-again? Are you
following Jesus?
Many have met Jesus. They were
born-again but they turned away from Jesus. They did not follow Him.
They went back to sin and their previous lifestyle. They got
entangled in sin again. They are worse sinners than before they met
Jesus. We read in Hebrews 6:4-8 “4For in the case of those who have
once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have
been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5and have tasted the
good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6and then have
fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance,
since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to
open shame. 7For ground that drinks the rain which often falls
on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it
is also tilled, receives a blessing from God; 8but if it yields
thorns and thistles, it is worthless and close to being cursed, and
it ends up being burned.“ Are you one of those? There is still
hope, dear friend, if you repent and go back to Jesus, but do not
delay, or you will get cut off and burned if you do not bear fruit of
repentance..
Many have become self-righteous,
religious, pharisees. They are church goers, preachers, pastors,
evangelists. They are doing religion. They do not follow Jesus. They
are busy with their own ministries. They are bad trees that bear bad
fruit. Most church folks are like that. They are SINNERS, they are
NOT HOLY. 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 5:21-23.
We cannot follow Jesus if we do not
KNOW Him and OBEY Him. We cannot follow Him if we follow our own MIND
and other people. We have to be CHANGED, BORN-AGAIN, filled with the
Holy Spirit, submitted to the Holy Spirit and following His guidance.
We cannot be like the world and the unbeliever. We have follow Jesus
every day, until the end. That is the only way to have eternal life.
Meeting with Jesus once, does not save
you and keep you safe. You have to STAY with Him, HEAR from Him and
FOLLOW Him, until the end.
Have you become one of His sheep? Do
you LISTEN to His voice and follow Him every day? Do you still have
the hope of eternal life?
May Jesus bless you.
