The kingdom of God is at hand. Jesus,
the King is coming, to judge the world and to execute judgment on all
the unrighteousness of men. Since the days of John the Baptist, the
world has been warned to repent and prepare for the Coming of Jesus.
John the Baptist warned:” His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He
will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His
wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable
fire.” Matthew 3:12.
The first time Jesus came to save the
world. The next time He will come to judge the world. The only way to
enter the kingdom of God and have eternal life is to be born again.
No sinners will enter heaven. Jesus came to save sinners, make them
new inside, born again, to be holy children of God that obey Him.
Jesus Himself delivered the words of
eternal life, which are His words, the words that He spoke and His
commandments. Those who disregard and disobey Jesus will perish. His
words were recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Jesus said:”He
who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent
Me. 45“He who
sees Me sees the One who sent Me. 46“I
have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who
believes in Me will not remain in darkness. 47“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 12:44-50.
The gospel of Jesus is plain and
simple, easy to understand. It is condensed in these verses that
Jesus commanded His disciples: “Go therefore and make disciples of
all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son
and the Holy Spirit, 20teaching
them to observe all that I commanded you;” Matthew 28:19,20. Also:
“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.” Mark 16:15,16.
Jesus did never and will ever reject
anyone who comes to Him. He did not judge even the biggest sinner. He
healed the sick and delivered the demon possessed, but He commanded
them to GO SIN NO MORE. All those who believed and REPENTED were
baptized in water, by Jesus’ disciples. Repent does not mean to
admit you are a sinner, it means to TURN AWAY FROM SIN, SIN NO MORE.
“Without holiness no one will see the Lord.”
Jesus gives the New Life to those who
believe in Him, repent and are baptized. They are born again, they
become children of God, who live in obedience to Jesus’
commandments. He also promised to give the Holy Spirit, in them to
help, teach and guide them, but they must stay in OBEDIENCE to Jesus,
living holy and righteously, bearing fruit for the kingdom of God.
Jesus is coming and He will judge every
man according to their DEEDS. Even in the days of John the Baptist
there were some who came for baptism but they had never repented,
they were still practicing sin. “But when he saw many of the
Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, “You
brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to
come? 8“Therefore
bear fruit in keeping with repentance;” Matthew 3:7,8. Baptism
without repentance is senseless. Many born again Christians go back
to unholiness and sin after being baptized. If they do not repent,
they will perish.
Many preachers, church leaders and
evangelists, are living in sin. Jesus called them false prophets.
“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.
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
Many Christians are not ready. They are
not living in communion with Jesus, because they are worldly and in
sin. Their fruit is bad, they are bad trees. The kingdom of God is at
hand. Jesus is coming to judge the world, but judgment will start
with His children, the Christians. The apostle Peter wrote: “For it
is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and
if it begins with us first, what will be the
outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18AND
Jesus is coming. Are we ready?
Repent before it is too late and bear
fruit in keeping with repentance. Be a good tree, because bad trees
will be cut down and burned, even though they were born again
May Jesus bless you.
