Discerning the VOICE of the Holy Spirit

Many believers say that they have difficulty discerning the voice of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit speaks to us IN OUR SPIRIT, giving us WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING if we seek the will of God.

It depends on whom we are trying to HEAR, whom we are LISTENING to. Do I WANT to hear from God? Do I really WANT His guidance or do I want my own desire? Whom do I want to please? Myself, other people, or do I want to be pleasing to Jesus Christ? That will determine whom I am listening to. Do I want to fit in with the world? Do I want things my way? Because then I am listening to the devil, and to other voices. The question is: Do I really want to hear from God?

Jesus said that those who are pure in heart will see God. If I purify my motives and I seek the will of God then I will SEE the hand of God, I will HEAR His voice and I will gain UNDERSTANDING. I will DISCERN when the Lord is speaking to me. His sheep LISTEN to His voice and they FOLLOW Him.

Am I LISTENING to hear His voice or am I satisfied to accept all other influences including my own? Am I pure in heart? Am I seeking the will of God? If I am seeking to please Him then His voice will come through LOUD AND CLEAR.

May Jesus bless you.

Salvation is not a PROCEDURE or AFFILIATION

Many churches and individuals have reduced salvation to a PROCEDURE or and AFFILIATION. Many so-called preachers tell people to follow a procedure, they have to ADMIT that they are sinners and then say a SINNERS PRAYER, and then they ASSURE them that they are saved, if they die now they are “going to heaven.” Others add onto this that :”Now that you are SAVED you have to JOIN THE CHURCH”, become affiliated with the church.

Salvation is not a PROCEDURE, a series of steps that you follow, it is not an affiliation with a person or a group of people, it is KNOWING and OBEYING the Living God, Jesus Christ and FOLLOWING Him, SERVING Him for eternity. It is not about just BELIEVING and reading about Him in the Bible, it is about KNOWING Him FOR REAL, HEARING from Him, LISTENING to Him, OBEYING Him and SERVING Him. It is a RELATIONSHIP with the Living God, a relationship of SERVANT TO MASTER. We have to SERVE Him as the One whom He is, GOD ALMIGHTY, and live our lives to please Him.

Jesus Christ, the Living God will say to most believers the day that the die, He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.” Because they never knew Him. Many of them believe that they are SAVED but they do not even know Jesus Christ. They don’t want to know Him. They just want the ASSURANCE of salvation. They have followed the procedure and they are affiliated to a church and to them that is enough but they don’t have Jesus and they are LOST.

Do you KNOW Jesus Christ, the Living God and do you FOLLOW Him, OBEY Him, SERVE Him, every day? Is your relationship with Him REAL?

May Jesus bless you.

The RAPTURE Deception

Churches and individuals have fabricated many false teachings and theories from their own imagination and from the Bible, from prophecy and people believe in those lies instead of following and obeying Jesus Christ. One of those lies is the RAPTURE THEORY where people believe that they will be snatched out of tribulation and they will spend eternity with Jesus because they have said a SINNER’S PRAYER.
Jesus never promised to take us out of trouble, He said:”I will be with you until the very end.” Those who endure until the end will be saved. Jesus did not teach anybody a SINNERS PRAYER. He said:”Whoever wishes to come after Me must deny himself, pick up his cross and come here follow Me.” These FABLES, these STORIES have been embroidered in Hollywood style. There are movies about those who are “LEFT BEHIND.” Those stories are fabricated, there is no such thing as those who are left behind. There are THEORIES about those who have been left behind after the RAPTURE.
We have to FOLLOW Jesus Christ and not get LEFT BEHIND. If we lag behind Jesus and not keep up with Him, do not follow Him closely, then we have strayed, we have back slidden and if we die at that stage we will perish. There is no hope of a SUDDEN ESCAPE from tribulation, that is a lie from satan. People have fabricated and embroidered those fables from prophecy that they have “stitched together” to make a story to entice people and persuade them to join the church, to be part of the church so that they can be part of the TAKING UP the SNATCHING AWAY of the believers.
Jesus commanded us to FOLLOW Him, DENY OURSELVES, pick up our cross and follow Him every day, to live holy and righteous, to be led by the Holy Spirit, to bear fruit of the Kingdom of God, to make disciples and teach them to follow Him. All these fables give people FALSE HOPE and FALSE SECURITY and cause them to become FRUITLESS, they sit back and wait for the RAPTURE instead of following Jesus Christ and doing what He commands them to do. They do not know Jesus, they believe in fables.
We have to follow Jesus every day, live holy, listen to His voice and do what He tells us to do. Do not put your hope in fables. Fix your sight on Christ, seek Him with all your heart and HEAR His voice. LISTEN to Him, FOLLOW Him and hope IN HIM. Do not hope in a SUDDEN ESCAPE or in “your salvation” because you have said a SINNERS PRAYER. If you do not follow Jesus closely He will say to you:”Go away I never knew you, you worker of wickedness.” If we are not AT our Father’s business right now, seeking and building the kingdom of God the we are not part of it and we will not be part of it when we come to the end of our lives. Follow Jesus NOW and you will have eternal life. Stay with Him until the very end or you will perish. Do not believe in fables.
May Jesus bless you.

Wisdom for those who are BEING SAVED

The wisdom of God is MANIFESTED, it is DISPLAYED and EXCERCISED in those who believe the words of Jesus Christ and who OBEY Him, who PICK UP THEIR CROSS and FOLLOW Him. Only those who OBEY the words of Jesus Christ WILL BE SAVED.
The world and those who perish do not understand the wisdom of God because they cannot understand how obedience to Jesus Christ can save you. But it is only once you OBEY Jesus Christ, pick up your cross, deny yourself and follow Him, it is only then that you are BEING SAVED.
I read the words of Paul in Corinthians 1:18-31:
18For the WORD OF THE CROSS is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

19For it is written,
“I WILL DESTROY THE WISDOM OF THE WISE,
AND THE CLEVERNESS OF THE CLEVER I WILL SET ASIDE.”

20Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 22For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom; 23but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, 24but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

26For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; 27but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, 28and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, 29so that no man may boast before God. 30But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, 31so that, just as it is written, “LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD.”
The wisdom of God starts working in our lives once we OBEY Jesus Christ, once we OBEY HIS WORDS, pick up our cross and FOLLOW Him. Because then He reveals Himself TO us, IN us and THROUGH us, and only then are we BEING SAVED, if we endure with Him and bear our cross, OBEY the words of Jesus until the very end, then only will we be saved.
That is the wisdom of God.
May Jesus bless you.

Triumph over your circumstances

Jesus Christ does not change you into an escape artist, neither does He snatch you out of trouble like so many people like to believe and even preach. Jesus Christ changes you into an OVERCOMER because with Christ in us WE CAN DO ALL THINGS. With Christ in us we overcome our situation, we overcome all things.

If you follow Jesus Christ He puts you into situations that are humanly impossible and then by His power in you, you overcome.

Many believers say that they cannot stop sinning. It is because they are not in Christ, they have not submitted to Jesus Christ. They want things their way. They want to continue in their sin and in their love for the world, and they do not love Jesus. If we love Jesus Christ and we follow Him then nothing is impossible for us. He make us reign and triumph in our situation. It doesn’t matter what our situation is but if we stand on Jesus, the SOLID ROCK, then we are NOT MOVED. If we take the words of Jesus Christ seriously and we obey Him then we are built on a SOLID FOUNDATION and we will not be shaken when the storms of life come against us, because we will TRUST in Him and He will carry us through. We will triumph in our situation.

Jesus Christ guides us on a triumphant path where we have to overcome every situation and endure until the very end. Only those who overcome will win the prize of eternal life. Those who quit, who give up will not enter the kingdom of heaven. We CAN DO ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens us as long as we stay with Him and we follow Him until the very end. He leads us to victory.

Are you defeated or are you following the Master? Will you endure with Jesus until the very end? If you give up it is all in vain and you will perish. Those who follow Jesus Christ triumph in their circumstances.

May Jesus bless you.

Self Centered Baby Christians

Most Christian believers never grow up to spiritual maturity. They perish as spiritual babies. Most believers are SPIRITUAL BABIES because they are self centered. Everything is about themselves. They want Jesus to do everything for them, they want to be nursed, they want to be cherished. They want to be taken care of, everything is about themselves.
The kingdom of God is not about you and me, it is about Jesus Christ. It is about denying ourselves, picking up our cross and following Jesus It is about going after Jesus, about seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness and then all the other things will be added unto us. People want to feel loved, they want to feel appreciated, they want a pat on the shoulder all the time, they want to be encouraged, they want to feel loved. Jesus SHOWED HIS LOVE for you and me on Calvary, He DIED, He gave His life for us, He PROVED it. The only way we can prove our love for Him is to DIE TO SELF and to LIVE FOR HIM, to grow up and to be spiritually mature, to get up on our feet, pick up our cross and go after Him, testify for Him, live for Him.
Get rid of your sins, get rid of your pet demons, those good friends of yours that have been with you all your life, those things that you loved more than Jesus. KICK THEM OUT and get serious. People say:”I cannot stop sinning.” They don’t WANT to stop sinning, they LOVE their sin. They love their demons, they don’t love Jesus. They want Jesus to come and kick the demons out and pat them on the back every day.
If you want eternal life you have to GROW UP, pick up your cross and follow Jesus Christ. GO AFTER HIM, PRAISE Him, testify for Him. Stop moaning, stop whining, stop complaining and crying and being a spiritual cry baby. Grow up, get serious about Jesus Christ, thank Him, praise Him, give Him glory because He is worthy. We have nothing to cry about. We must just thank and praise Jesus every day because He is God, He is Lord. He has been looking after you and me all our lives while we have been busy with OURSELVES.
Grow up, dear friend and follow Jesus, become mature in Him or else you will perish as a spiritual baby.
May Jesus bless you.

The Ultimate Life Coach

The ultimate life coach is Jesus Christ Himself. He came to show us the way and to tell us how to live to have eternal life. Some of those who walked with Him, who heard Him, who witnessed his deeds, the, eye witnesses, some of them recorded His words and his deeds and we have record of what Jesus Christ said in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John but Jesus did not leave us words only, a record only. He promised his Holy Spirit to guide and to teach and to coach all those who are serious about having LIFE and LIFE IN ABUNDANCE, NOW AND FOR ETERNITY.

Jesus Christ promised His Holy Spirit to GUIDE and COACH and TEACH those who want eternal life but they have to OBEY Him. They have to obey His words, they must REPENT of sin, turn away from wickedness, be baptized in water, and then they can EXPECT to receive the Holy Spirit. If they are SERIOUS about following Jesus Christ He will baptize them in the Holy Spirit like He did to the first believers on the day of Pentecost and the Holy Spirit will come and live in them and be with them and guide them.

There is no better life coach than the Holy Spirit whom Jesus Christ promised to those who want eternal life, but they HAVE TO OBEY HIM, they have to SUBMIT to Him, they have to follow Him every step of the way every day, they have to TRUST Him and NOT GRIEVE Him or else He will leave them. The Spirit of God will not strive with man for ever, we cannot take Him for granted. We have to HUMBLY SUBMIT to Him, SEEK Him, SEEK His guidance, OBEY and FOLLOW and He will guide us and He will teach us in ALL THINGS.

Jesus Christ did not send us a manual, a book or some special prophet or person to guide us, no, He sent us the Holy Spirit to INDIVIDUALLY guide each and every soul who is SERIOUS about eternal life.

Are you serious about LIFE, about ETERNAL LIFE? Then OBEY Jesus, EMBRACE Him with all that is in you. Seek Him with all your heart, OBEY His words, YEAR for Him, YEARN for His Holy Spirit and He will come and LIVE WITH YOU. He will guide you every step of the way until the very end. Have you received the ULTIMATE COACH that Jesus promised to those who love life, who love HIM and who want to spend eternity with HIM? Have you received the Holy Spirit? Do you TREASURE Him, FOLLOW and OBEY Him every day?

May Jesus bless you.
