What Jesus says

Most Christian believers are concerned
about what the Bible says, because that is what they have been
taught. That is what is real to them. What really matters is what
Jesus says, what He said and what He is saying today.
Many things are written in the Bible.
The Bible is a book of many words but the only words that lead to
eternal life are the words of Jesus, the words that He spoke as they
were also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the
Red Letter words, in some Bibles.
The only way to have eternal life is to
obey Jesus, to do what He commanded and taught.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God, not
the Bible, as so many wrongly believe. The words of Jesus are harsh
and therefor they are rejected by men. At one stage the followers of
Jesus were offended at His words, of what He said. “Because of this
many of His disciples withdrew and were not walking with Him
anymore. So Jesus said to the twelve, “You do not want to go
away also, do you?” Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom
shall we go? You have words of eternal life.” John 6:66-68.
Jesus has the words of eternal life,
not the rest of the Bible. The Jews rejected Jesus, they were the
pharisees, teachers of the Law of Moses, the Torah. They rejected the
words of Jesus and therefor He said to them:”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.”John 5:39.
Even so today, Christians are busy with
Bible study because they think that if they do Bible study they will
have eternal life, but they reject and disobey the words of Jesus
that are also recorded in their Bibles.
If we come to Jesus, He will reveal
Himself to us. If we obey His words, His commands, we will be born
again and become children of God who hear His voice, who know Him and
follow Him. Obey Jesus, repent, stop sinning, be baptized in water,
be holy, seek Him with all your heart and He will reveal Himself to
you. He will speak to you, teach and guide you and if you stay with
Him, every day, until the end, He will give you eternal life.
Jesus said:”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 What is Jesus saying to you today? Do
you know Him? Do you go after Him? Do you hear His voice and do you
follow Him? Are you one of His sheep?
May Jesus bless you.
