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
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
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.
