THE FALSE SECURITY OF CHURCH

None of your church leaders or church friends will be with you when you stand before Jesus in judgment.  You will stand before Jesus and He will decide whether you enter heaven or not. His judgment will be based on whether you knew and obeyed Him or not.
Jesus said:“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 FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’ Matthew 7:21-23.
All that matters is our relationship with Jesus.  If we accept and serve Him as Lord,  we have the hope of eternal life.
Many people have been deceived by churches. They think that their church membership and fellowship with other believers is important for their salvation. They feel safe and secure in church and with church people. They think that by supporting and giving money to the church they are serving God. They are not. They are enriching the church and it’s leadership.  
Church is a scam. God does not dwell in churches, He dwells in those who obey Him and follow Jesus. They are a temple of the Holy Spirit. God is Spirit.  He makes of His Spirit,  the Holy Spirit,  to dwell in those who accept and obey Jesus. They become born again, children of God, who hear His voice,  listen to Him and follow Him. They serve the kingdom of God.
The only secure place is to be with Jesus, to follow and obey Him. 
Do you know Jesus? Does He know you? Do you know His voice and are you following Him?
May Jesus bless you.

CHRISTIAN WITCHCRAFT

God is supreme.  He is not coerced or pressurized into serving and supporting human plans and agendas. Many foolish Christians think they can manipulate the Holy Spirit to serve their carnal agendas. They think they can force Him to answer them. They think they can conjure up the Holy Spirit. They are ignorant because they do not  know God.
Jesus gives the Holy Spirit to dwell in, be with and guide those who wish to follow, serve and obey Him. The Holy Spirit guides us into righteousness,  holiness and fruitfulness for the kingdom of God. Those who are led by the Spirit of God,  the Holy Spirit,  they are the sons of God, the children of God. 
The world and the unbeliever cannot receive the Holy Spirit,  only those who earnestly seek Jesus and who obey Him, who repent and are baptized. Very few of those who have received the Holy Spirit  do follow and obey Him. Very few have been taught to follow His guidance. Most believers follow after their own desires, lusts and ambitions. Many follow after other people,  preachers and religious leaders. Many of those preachers are practicing religious witchcraft, lies, trickery and deception. They do not have the Holy Spirit.  They are deceivers and false prophets because they do not make disciples of Jesus. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing that seduce believers to follow them.
The Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus,  not people. The Holy  Spirit builds the kingdom of God, not churches. The Holy Spirit guides us into godliness and holiness, not into prosperity,  earthly riches and gratification of the flesh. If you are serious about following Jesus, you will seek  Him, obey His words and His commandments as also recorded in Matthew,  Mark, Luke and  John; repent and be baptized and He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit will teach and guide you in all things, but you have to seek Him, pray, wait on Him  and trust Him.
There is no magic recipe to hear from God and to be led by the Holy Spirit. There are no magic experiences, ministries or teachings.
If you seek Jesus with all your heart, you will find Him. If you want to follow  Him, He will guide you. You will not find answers from other people, their  teachings, books, ideas and videos or from the Bible or anywhere else. The Bible points you to Jesus.  Nobody else can help  you, or speak to Jesus for you , or work out your salvation for you.

Jesus is the WAY. Jesus is the ONLY WAY. Seek Him in prayer, fasting and obedience to His words and you will find Him.
May Jesus bless you.

HUMBLE SERVANTS 

In this world people strive for status, recognition and fame. Even in churches there are titles  and high ranking officials,  men and women of statue and importance. However, in the kingdom of God  those things are of no importance. 
Jesus rebuked the pharisees and was teaching His disciples. He said:
“They love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called Rabbi by men. 8“But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9“Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10“Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. 11“But the greatest among you shall be your servant. 12“Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.” Matthew 23:6-12.
We are called to be humble servants of Jesus,  undeserving, without title or status. Jesus said to His disciples:7“Which of you, having a slave plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come immediately and sit down to eat’? 8“But will he not say to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat, and properly clothe yourself and serve me while I eat and drink; and afterward you may eat and drink’? 9“He does not thank the slave because he did the things which were commanded, does he? 10“So you too, when you do all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have done.” Luke  17:7-10.
Are we ready to be undeserving,  humble servants of Jesus? 
May Jesus bless you.

The Gospel of Jesus is about GIVING.

God gave LIFE to the world,  by giving Jesus  Christ.  We read in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He GAVE His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” God SACRIFICED His Son.
Jesus willingly sacrificed Himself, gave up His life, to save the world. If we wish to follow Jesus and have eternal life, then we have to sacrifice ourselves, our own  desires, ambitions, plans, even our life and follow Him. We read in Romans 12:1,2. “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”

We read in 1 Peter 4:1 “Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. 3For the time already past is sufficient for you to have carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties and abominable idolatries. 4In all this, they are surprised that you do not run with them into the same excesses of dissipation, and they malign you; 5but they will give account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. 6For the gospel has for this purpose been preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will of God.”
Jesus said: “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. 25“For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27“For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS.” Matthew 16:24-27.
That is the cost of eternal life, the price that we have to pay to have salvation. Just believing in Jesus will not save us if we do not sacrifice our will, obey Jesus and follow Him until the end. 
May Jesus bless you.

FOOLISH EXPECTATIONS

Many Christian believers are foolish in their expectations. They are not willing to pay the price, but they expect to enter heaven and have eternal life, when they die. They are not willing to follow Jesus but they expect to find the narrow door into heaven. 
You cannot buy or earn salvation, neither can anybody else work out your salvation for you. Others can pray for you and encourage you but you have to walk your own walk with Jesus. 
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.  He paid the price for the redemption of the world and He will decide who will go into heaven and who not. Jesus clearly explained the conditions for eternal life. His words and commandments are recorded in Matthew,  Mark, Luke and John. Those are the words of eternal life. Those who disregard and disobey them will not have LIFE.  
Jesus promised eternal life to those who believe in Him AND therefore follow and obey Him. 
Your relationship with Jesus is just like every other thing in life. If you do not invest in it, do not expect to get anything out.
Many Christians are not willing to do or give anything for Jesus and His kingdom. They will be terribly disappointed when they die. They will learn too late that they were deceived by satan and the false prophets, to disobey Jesus and not to work on their relationship with Jesus,  not to work for His kingdom. 
Many Christians work for their churches, some even build churches. Others preach and evangelize,  even perform miracles in the name of Jesus,  but they have no relationship with Him. Neither are they working for Him or His kingdom. They are working for themselves and their own glory. Many are famous preachers and church leaders.  They expect to receive great rewards, crowns and accolades in heaven, but they have foolish expectations.  Jesus warned: “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 FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’ Matthew 7:21-23.
What is our expectation? How much are we investing in our relationship with Jesus? Are we living and working for Him and His kingdom? What can we reasonably expect to receive?  As a man sows, so shall he reap. 
Are we seeking the kingdom of God and sowing our time, our resources,  our work, effort, even our life, into the kingdom of God?
May Jesus bless you.

THE CHRISTIAN BUBBLE

Most Christian believers live in a bubble of religious deception, lies and false security. All Christians reference the Bible as their source  of teaching but they all have varied versions of the truth. They  all believe their version to be the best, and some even believe that all Christians will have eternal life as long as they confess to believe in Jesus. 
The Scriptures testify of the truth, which is Jesus Christ. All Scripture points to Jesus. He is the way,  the life and the truth. Scripture as written in the Bible, leads to faith in Jesus, obedience to Him, and eternal life for those who obey Him. The words of Jesus,  as recorded in the Bible,  in Matthew,  Mark,  Luke and  John, are the words of eternal life. 
There is only one truth and one narrow road, that leads to eternal life, and that is Jesus,  living by His words  and commandments and follow His guidance, through the Holy Spirit that He gives in those who seek to follow Him.
The truth has been  perverted by people who added  their own teachings and interpretations to what was written in the Scriptures.  All churches have their own teachings, doctrines,  rules and beliefs, bubbles of lies and deception whereby church members are encapsulated. Many believers have their own false perceptions. Others have been  deceived by the words and teachings of other men and women. All believers have been veiled by lies and layers of deception. They are living in bubbles of lies and deception.
I was also deceived by many teachings, perceptions, false beliefs, hoaxes, false prophecies and my own ignorance. I was also living in false security of salvation. I also believed I was saved and assured of eternal life, until I died of a heart attack and found myself on my way to hell. By my understanding, in my bubble of deception, I was safe and secure. I was obviously not.
That happened more than 20 years ago. I did not realize how deceived I was and how deceived most Christians are. Jesus started teaching me, showing me the deception that is in the world, but more so in churches, how Christians are being deceived and defrauded by lies from satan.
satan will do everything to keep you away from Jesus and from following the Holy Spirit, because Jesus is the WAY and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth,  that will guide you into all truth, IF you follow Him.
Jesus gives wisdom, understanding to, and He guides every person that believes in Him, obeys Him and TRUSTS Him. He is the Light of the world. Those who follow Him, will not be in darkness.
That is why most Christians are in darkness, living in a religious bubble. They are not following Jesus.  They do not trust Him and they do not know Him, never met Him. Even those who met Him and were born again do not trust and follow Him. They follow after people,  churches, their own “interpretation” of the Bible, that which they choose to  believe. They prefer to stay in their religious bubble,  rather than to trust Jesus and follow Him, and that is why they will perish.
You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free, IF you trust in Jesus,  follow Him and BELIEVE what He tells you.
Do you really want to know the TRUTH? Then follow Jesus. Get serious with Him. Humble yourself before Him in prayer. Accept Him. Trust Him and obey Him.  Repent of all sin, stop sinning. Be baptized in water for the washing off of your sin. Be Holy, sin no more.  Obey the words of Jesus,  His teachings and commandments as also recorded. In Matthew,  Mark,  Luke and  John.  Seek  Jesus with all your heart and He will give His Holy Spirit in you,  to teach and guide you. 
Come out of the bubble, and trust Jesus.  Follow Him, and you will know the truth, you will walk in the Light and He will give you eternal life if you stay with Him until the end.
May Jesus bless you.

STALE RELIGIOUSNESS

Many Christians are practicing stale religiousness. Some of them are extremely devoted to their religious routines, prayers, Bible study, church attendance, charities and devotions which they religiously practice. They are in a routine or a groove, and they feel safe and secure in their religiousness. By the definition and standard of the religiosity that they practice, they are performing well but there is no spirit, no life and no fruit. Their hard work and effort is not bringing glory to Jesus, and so it is fruitless for the kingdom of God.

Their Bible study is like absorbing old stale bread. It is written that “man will not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the MOUTH of God.” The “letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” 2 Cor.3:6. It is only when we HEAR from Jesus and are LED by His Holy Spirit that we can have LIFE in us and have LIFE flowing through us.

God gave the Israelites manna, bread from heaven, daily fresh bread. They could only pick up enough for the day. If they gathered more and tried to keep it for longer it would go rotten and have worms in it. Jesus is the Bread of Life, the Word of God. We need to HEAR from Him, GATHER of that Bread every day, for that day, then we will have LIFE in us and bear fruit for His kingdom. Without Jesus we can do nothing.

Therefor we pray:”Give us this day, our daily bread.” Have we heard from Jesus, TODAY? Have we HEARD His WORDS OF LIFE, Him speaking to us, or did we feed on old stale bread?

May Jesus bless you.
