DIE TO SIN

The Christian world has been brainwashed to think that you can live in sin. Many confess to be SINNERS. You cannot live for Jesus Christ AND live in sin. You have to DIE TO SIN before you can follow Jesus Christ.
The apostle Paul writes in Romans 6:1:”What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may increase? 2May it never be! How shall WE WHO DIED TO SIN still live in it? 3Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.”
We cannot life for Jesus unless we DIE TO SIN and we consider ourselves DEAD TO SIN. Therefor once we have committed to follow Jesus Christ we HAVE TO BE BAPTIZED IN WATER to publicly confess that we have DIED TO SIN and therefor we bury the old man of sin in that water so that from the water can arise a NEW CREATURE who follows Jesus Christ IN HIS LIKENESS, who becomes LIKE HIM, who lives FOR the kingdom of God. We cannot continue living in sin, we have to DIE TO SIN before we can follow Jesus Christ.
Verse 5:”For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, that our body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer live as slaves to sin;”

Many believers confess that THEY CANNOT STOP SINNING, it is because they never died to sin. They are not children of God, they are children of the devil and they cannot follow Jesus Christ because they are LIVING IN SIN and they are living TO SIN.

Verse 7:”for he who has died is freed from sin.
8Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him. 10For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11Even so CONSIDER YOURSELVES TO BE DEAD TO SIN, but ALIVE TO GOD in Christ Jesus.
12Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, 13and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.”

We cannot live in sin. We have to consider ourselves DEAD TO SIN and present our bodies as a living sacrifice to Christ Jesus to LIVE IN RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS.

Verse 14:”For SIN SHALL NOT BE MASTER OVER YOU, for you are not under law but under grace.”
The grace of God makes us FREE FROM THE BONDAGE OF SIN.

Verse 15:”What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be! 16Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? 17But thanks be to God that though YOU WERE SLAVES OF SIN, YOU BECAME OBEDIENT FROM THE HEART to that form of teaching to which you were committed, 18and having been freed from sin, YOU BECAME SLAVES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. “

Are you FREE FROM SIN? Are you a slave to righteousness or have you not yet died to sin? Because then you cannot follow Jesus Christ. We have to DIE TO SIN before we can live for Jesus Christ and the kingdom of God.
Paul writes in verse 23:”For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” If we sin we must die. Jesus Christ GIVES eternal life to those who OBEY Him. We cannot EARN eternal life. We have to DIE TO SIN and then LIVE FOR JESUS CHRIST and He will GIVE us the gift of eternal life.
May Jesus bless you.

Only the PROVEN Ones will have ETERNAL LIFE

All those who wish to follow Jesus Christ and have eternal life will be tested and tried but only those who endure with Jesus and remain faithful to Him until the very end, only they will be proven to be true followers of Jesus and only they will have eternal life. Only they will have the CROWN OF LIFE.
We read in James 1:12 ”Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial for ONCE HE HAS BEEN APPROVED, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.”
We have to be APPROVED, we have to PASS ALL THE TESTS and endure with Jesus until the very end. May we ENDURE and STAND AGANST TEMPTATION and PROVE that we love Jesus and that we are faithful to Him until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.

Take No Captives FORGIVE

Many believers will end up in hell because they refused to FORGIVE. Jesus taught us to pray:”Forgive is our debts as we HAVE forgiven our debtors” – “Forgive us our sins as we HAVE forgiven those who have sinned against us.” If we do not forgive those who have sinned against us then our Father in heaven will not forgive us (Matthew 6:14,15).

The wages of sin is death. If our sins are not forgive because of our un-forgiveness then we will perish for our sins. Remember, OUR SINS WILL NOT BE FORGIVEN unless we HAVE ALREADY FORGIVEN those who have sinned against us. Before we pray and ask Jesus for forgiveness we must first forgive all those who have sinned against us or else we will not receive forgiveness for our sins and our sins will still be held against us.

When Jesus was crucified He said:”Father FORGIVE THEM, for they do not know what they are doing.” They did not ask Him for forgiveness, He forgave them.

If we do not forgive all those who have sinned against us then our prayers and our religion is in vain because we will end up in hell.

May Jesus bless you.

God’s WAY Not Our Way

If we go after Jesus Christ and follow Him He will guide us into the UNKNOWN, the UNPLANNED, the UNEXPECTED and that is why very few people who call themselves believers will ever follow Jesus Christ. Because they do not really believe, they do not really trust Him and therefor they are not willing to follow Him.

People want to control their own destiny, their own lives, they want to make their own plans, they have their own ambitions and therefor very few people will follow Jesus Christ. Very few will go after Him, very few will be His disciples and that is why to most people Jesus Christ will say:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.” They were busy with their own plans for all of their life and Jesus Christ was an after-thought, a quick prayer before they went to bed, He was never the center of their existence. They never followed Him, they never truly became children of God, they were just religious and most of them thought they were SAVED. But they never followed Jesus Christ, they never knew Him, they never got to KNOW HIM.

Do we KNOW Jesus Christ? Do we go after Him? Do we FOLLOW Him where He guides us? Do we do the will of God because we HEAR from Jesus or are we on a journey of our own? Are we really children of God and followers of Jesus Christ? Or are we just deceiving ourselves? Where will our journey take us? Are we following Jesus Christ into His kingdom, or are we following our own desires to destruction? Who are we following?

May Jesus bless you.

Faith Keeps on TRUSTING

If we believe in something we keep on trusting even though others might think that we are crazy. Often we are disappointed by those things in which we trust, but faith in Jesus does not disappoint. If we truly believe in Jesus we will keep on trusting Him even though others might think that we are crazy.

We will trust Him because we KNOW Him and because we know that Jesus Christ cannot and will not fail.

Jesus Christ rewards those who diligently seek Him, who keep on believeing and who keep on trusting, who keep on obeying and following Him and in the end they receive their reward. Many give up and they lose it all. Many only go with Jesus for a short while, for a short distance then they give up and it is all in vain.

We need to keep on trusting in Jesus until the very end to receive that which He promised. Do not give up on Jesus because Jesus Christ never gave up on you.

May Jesus bless you.

Speaking from EXPERIENCE

It is only when you KNOW and FOLLOW Jesus Christ that you can talk from experience. Most religious people speak things that they do not know nor understand, they have just heard it or read it. Jesus Christ once gave me a revelation, a vision of Joyce Meyers (American Woman Preacher), she was speaking to a whole hall full of parrots, people who listen to her are parrots – they hear what she says, they repeat it but they do not even know what they are saying because they don’t know Jesus Christ.

It is only when you walk with Jesus and EXPERIENCE Him, when you pray and He gives you understanding, when you follow Him and He guides you, it is only then that you have understanding, that you can speak from EXPERIENCE.

Most believers are just parrots, they have just heard or read something or they have been taught something but they don’t understand what they are saying. Many believers quote King James version Bible but they do not even understand the ancient English, they have no experience of Jesus Christ, they KNOW NOTHING.

If you do not know Jesus Christ and walk with Him every day then you will not gain UNDERSTANDING, you will not have any EXPERIENCE and you will not know what you are talking about. Are you just a parrot, repeating phrases that you have read and heard or do you have EXPERIENCE with Jesus Christ? What is your TESTIMONY?

May Jesus bless you.

BELIEVE and you will RECEIVE

People want to become all TECHNICAL about following Jesus Christ. They want to know HOW to hear His voice, HOW TO be baptized in the Holy Spirit, HOW TO speak in tongues. You cannot figure out God. You cannot figure out the works of God. You only have to ASK Him, BELIEVE and you will RECEIVE.

Be SERIOUS with Jesus, SEEK Him with all your heart. Go on your knees, HUMBLE yourself before Him, PRAY, ASK, EXPECT, TRUST Him, BELIEVE and you will RECEIVE. He will speak to you, He will reveal Himself to you, He will guide you, He will teach you IF you BELIEVE!

May Jesus bless you.
