Eternal life is for everyone who wishes
to follow Jesus. Jesus will not refuse or turn away anyone who comes
to Him. Everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved, but
you have to obey Him and stay with Him until the end, to stay saved.
Without Jesus, we can do nothing.
Without Jesus there is no hope of eternal life, not just believing in
Jesus, but knowing Him, following and obeying Him, until the end.
Most important, Jesus must know you, or else you will not enter
How is it that Jesus, who is God, and
who knows everything and everybody can say to a person: ”Go away I
never knew you, you worker of lawlessness.”? Jesus said: “Therefore
everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before
My Father who is in heaven. 33“But
whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father
who is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32,33.
Many profess to be Christians but they
do not obey Jesus. They do not live according to His commandments,
His words, as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. They refuse
to repent and be baptized. They reject His Holy Spirit. They are
ashamed of Him, ashamed of speaking in tongues. Jesus said: “If you
love Me, you will obey My words.” He also 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
It was not their faith that failed
them, but their WORKS, their FRUIT. Jesus 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.” Matthew 7:15-20.
The only way to have eternal life is to
follow and obey Him, not just to believe in Him, as so many falsely
believe. If we believe in Jesus, and follow Him, we will become like
Him. We will be living replicas of Jesus. “3By
this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His
commandments. 4The
one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His
commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; 5but
whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been
perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: 6the
one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same
manner as He walked.” 1 John 2:3-6.
Are we following Jesus unto eternal
life? Have we become like Him, or are we only fooling ourselves? Do
we know Jesus, and does He know us?
May Jesus bless you.
