A Good Father

A good father does not give to his children everything that they ask for, what they want, he gives to them what is good for them. A good father does not seek the approval for the acceptance of his children. A good father does not tolerate disobedience or disrespect. A good father will not be manipulated by his children, his wife, or by anybody else; he will bring his children up in the fear of God to do that which is pleasing to God, he seeks to do the will of God.

When the children grow up the father rejoices when a child does well in life and when he stays on the right path, but he mourns when a child lives wickedly, ends up in prison and gets into trouble, when a child walks the wrong path. Us as parents treat our children and bring them up in the way that we think right, but God is the best father, He knows right and He does right and when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Master then He adopts us, He accepts us as His own; as His children and He treats us as children. He disciplines us and He teaches us, He takes care of us. He gives us what we need. He only has the best in mind for us. But we cannot manipulate Him, we cannot change His will; we need to seek His will and live for His kingdom, we need to obey Him and go after His plan and purpose for our lives. Jesus Christ will give us His gifts, He will give us everything that we need to fulfill His purpose, but if we stray and if we, in the end refuse to do His wil, He will grieve over us if we end up in hell. It is not the will of God that anyone perish but that all repent, accept Jesus Christ, are born again and become obedient children of God, that do His will so that they will have an inheritance in the kingdom of heaven.

Every branch in Christ that does not bear good fruit will get cut off and burned. Every child that disobeys Him will also get cut off and burned, he will end up in damnation because that was his choice, that was the consequence of his actions. It is not the will of God that we perish, but that we all be saved, that we enter His kingdom. If we do not follow and obey Jesus Christ,if we do not serve Him, serve His kingdom, we will have no inheritance in the kingdom of God. We need to go after Him, seek His will and serve Him as God, respect Him, pray wait on Him, serve Him as our Father, wait on Him and let Him guide us. We cannot manipulate Him, we cannot abuse Him. We have to bow humbly before Him because He is Lord. He is God Almighty, but He loves us and He treats us as children. He promises us the very best, His kingdom, if we endure with Him until the end, but if we deny Him, if we reject Him, if we turn away from Him, if we stray from Him then we will end up in damnation, if we do not return to the Father’s house and serve Him as Lord and Master. Serve Jesus as Lord and Master until the very end, obey Him, and you will inherit His kingdom.

May Jesus bless you.

The Right Leader

If we follow the wrong leadership we will end up where we do not want to be. There is only one right way, and that is God’s way. If we need wisdom, we must ask of God; He gives to all men freely. If we seek the truth, we must pray and ask God and He will reveal Jesus Christ to us. Jesus Christ is ALIVE, He is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE; He is the only way to eternal life.
If we seek Him with all our heart, He will reveal Himself to us and He will guide us. He will give His Holy Spirit in us to guide us in everything, every step of the way. But very few people are interested in the right way, in God’s way. Most people want things their way, for their benefit and for their pleasure. That is the way that leads to destruction.
There is only one way and that is God’s way, that is the right way, Jesus Christ. Have you met Jesus Christ? Are you following the right way, or will you end up in destruction?
May Jesus bless you.

Bible knowledge does not make you a child of God

Bible study and Bible knowledge does not make you a child of God. Church membership and being religious, having a baptismal certificate to prove that you were baptized, that does not make you a child of God. Even if you pray in tongues it does not make you a child of God, or if you prophesy, or preach or a show much charity.

The question is: Are you a disciple of Jesus Christ? Do you have the nature of Jesus? Do you show the fruit of being a child of God? Do you love Jesus Christ and do you love your neighbor? Many profess to be Christians but they are not disciples, are not born again. They love themselves they do not love Jesus and they do not love their neighbor. They love the world and the things of the world but they are religious, yet they call themselves Christians. We need to be disciples of Jesus Christ, followers of Jesus, and we need to show fruit of repentance, fruit of being born again, fruit of being a children of God. Fruit of repentance is not just to admit that you are a sinner and then continue sinning. No, you turn away from your previous lifestyle of sin and self gratification; you turn away from being worldly and self-centered and you go after Jesus Christ, you obey His words, His commands. You truly repent and you become a new creature inside, a child of God who does the will of God. You turn away from sin and you live holy and righteous, you obey Jesus and you are baptized in water, for the washing off of your sin and after that you live a life that is dedicated to Jesus Christ, you are separated unto Him. You are not like the world. You do not follow after your own desires and after the things of the world, you seek the will of God. You become a disciple; you seek the presence of Jesus, His Holy Spirit to dwell in you and to guide you every step of the way, so that you can do the will of God. You live to please Him, not to please yourself. You do not try to impress other people. You are only interested in being pleasing to God. Being a child of God, is being a disciple of Jesus Christ and nothing less. Being a child of God means being of Jesus, belonging to Jesus, and not of the world or of the church.

A disciple of Jesus Christ belongs to Him, he is of the kingdom of God. Have you become a disciple of Jesus Christ? Are you of Jesus Christ?

May Jesus bless you.

The Center of your Life

Until John the Baptist came the law and the prophets was preached, but John the Baptist came and he preached the Kingdom of God. He came to make the way for the King, Jesus Christ, and then the King of the Kingdom, Jesus Christ Himself, came to redeem for Himself a people that would serve and worship Him, a people that would inherit His kingdom, a people that would follow Him and do His will; those are the sons of God, the children of God.

The normal man is only concerned about himself, he himself, is the king of his life, his whole life centers around himself. But those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Master, and have submitted themselves to Him, who have become part of His kingdom, their life centers around Jesus Christ, around doing His will. They have died to self and their own ambitions, their own desires, and they live only for one thing, and that is the kingdom of God. They live to serve the King, the Master Jesus Christ. He is Lord; every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, that He is Master. Even those who rejected Him, who despised Him, even those who pierced Him, who killed Him, they will confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, but it will be too late for them. Now is the day of salvation, now is the day of the Lord. Today is the day to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Master and become part of His kingdom. If you reject Him you will perish. There is only one way to have eternal life and that is to serve Jesus Christ as Lord; to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, to obey His words, to accept Him, accept His words, repent, turn away from serving yourself, turn away from being the center of your own existence, and make Jesus Christ the center of your life. Turn away from sin and selfishness, submit yourself to Jesus as Lord and Master, die to self, be born again of the Spirit of God, and of water, be baptized in water, and come out of that water a new creature, be filled with the Holy Spirit and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Serve the King in holiness and righteousness. Let your life center around Him or else you cannot be part of His kingdom.

Are you part of the kingdom of God? Do you follow and serve the King, Jesus Christ? Is He real to you? Have you made Him the center of your life, or are you doomed and destined for eternal destruction? Seek Jesus now, while you can. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, serve Him as Lord and Master. Know Him for real or else He will say to you, like He will say to so many who rejected Him, so many who served themselves, so many who ran after people; He will say to them: Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness, because they did not believe in Him. They did not accept Him, they did not serve Him as Lord and Master. Is Jesus Christ your Master? Is he the center of your existence?

May Jesus bless you.

Repent and Follow Jesus Christ

Believing in Jesus Christ can only save you from hell if you obey Him, if you repent and follow Him. Just believing in Jesus Christ cannot save you. You have to come to Him on His terms on His conditions. You have to repent and follow Jesus Christ. The natural man, normal man, normal person, is selfish, self-centered, self-gratifying; his whole life is just about himself, satisfying his own ambitions and his own desires, his sinful lusts and therefore people sin. Because they are driven by lust and by their own desires. A normal man is a slave to sin, and a slave to his own ambitions. The normal man is the master of his own life, he serves himself. The wages of sin is death and therefore the natural man will end up in hell.

The only way to have eternal life is to give up our rights to ourselves and to submit ourselves to Jesus Christ, to obey Him and serve Him, live our lives to please Him and then He will pardon our sins. He will make us new inside, He will accept us and make us children of God. But we must serve Him as Lord and Master.

There is a cost to salvation, there is a cost to following Jesus Christ. It is such a high cost that very few people are willing to pay that price. They have wrongly been told that they only need to believe in Jesus Christ to have salvation; that is a lie.

We have to follow and obey Him, we have to submit our lives to Him and follow Him as disciples. I read the words of Jesus in Matthew chapter 16:24, “Then Jesus said to His disciples: “If anyone wishes to come after me he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in all the glory of His father with His angels and will then repay every man according to his deeds.”

We read in Luke chapter 14 verse 26 Jesus said:”If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple. Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be My disciple. For which one of you when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it? Otherwise when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him saying: This man began to build and was not able to finish. Or what king when he sets out to meet another king and battle, will not first sit down and consider whether he is strong enough with 10,000 men to encounter the one coming against him with 20,000? Or else while the other is still far away, he seems a delegation and asks for terms of peace. So then, none of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own

possessions.”

That is the price of discipleship; that is the price of salvation. We have to be willing to give up our rights to ourselves, to our own pleasure, to own ambitions, to our own desires, and we have to submit ourselves to Jesus Christ. We have to turn away from the pleasures of sin and from doing our own will and submit ourselves to Jesus Christ. We must die to self and live for Jesus. We must live for His kingdom, we must serve Him as Lord and Master. We must obey His commandments. If we are not willing to do that, then we are wasting our time. If we start going after Jesus and we’re not willing to pay the price anymore we will only be disappointed. We have to make up our mind before we decide to go after Jesus Christ.

If you have counted the cost and you have made up your mind that you want eternal life, that you want to go after Jesus Christ, then you need to commit to Him. Go on your knees before Him and accept Him into your life; accept Him as your Lord and your Master. Give up your rights to your own self, plead His pardon for your past sins. Be prepared to turn away from your sin and your previous lifestyle of self-gratification, of doing your own will. Cry out to Jesus, invite Him into your life; but be serious. If you are serious then He will accept you, He will make you knew inside and He will immediately give you peace and a joy that surpasses all understanding. You will know in your heart that you have met with the Living God, you have met with Jesus Christ. Then you need to clean up your life; clean up your mind, clean up your closets, your house, get rid of all those things that will separate you from Jesus, friends, bad habits, sinful things, worldly things, that were dear to you. Get rid of it and rearrange your life to be able to follow and obey Jesus Christ, to be pleasing to Him.

Next you must be baptized in water as Jesus commanded. I read the words of Jesus in Matthew chapter 28 verse 19:”Jesus commanded:”Therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.”

The words of Jesus, His commands, the words that He spoke, they are the words of eternal life. They are recorded in the Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John; go and read them, study, keep them in your heart because the Holy Spirit will remind you of those words. Those are the commands that we have to follow and live by to be pleasing to Jesus.

We read in Mark chapter 16 those 15: “and He said to them:” Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved, but he who has disbelieved will be condemned. These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues, they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison it will not hurt them, they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” These are the signs that will follow for those who take Jesus Christ seriously who obey Him who repent and be baptized. Jesus Christ promised the baptism in the Holy Spirit, His Spirit in every person who believes in Him and who obeys Him, who repents and who is baptized and who obeys His commands, who seeks Him with all their heart. You need the Holy Spirit, the presence and the voice of Jesus Christ in you, because you cannot follow Him if you do not know His voice. Your relationship with Jesus Christ is through prayer, through His Spirit dwelling in you, guiding you, and teaching you. Jesus said: “My sheep hear My voice I know them, and they follow Me.” John chapter 10 verse 27. Verse 5, Jesus said:” a stranger they will simply not follow but will

flee from him because they do not know the voice of the strangers.” We get to know Jesus Christ through our relationship with Him, through His Spirit that dwells in us, when we seek Him in prayer and He fills us with His Holy Spirit; He imparts His knowledge and his presence into us. We need to build our fellowship, our relationship with Jesus Christ, so that we can know Him and follow Him. We need to obey His commandments, and then He will reveal Himself to us, His commandments as also recorded in the Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Jesus said:”If you love me you will keep my Commandments.” We read in John chapter 14 verse 21:”he who has My Commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me, and he will loves me, will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and I will disclose Myself to him.” Jesus Christ will disclose Himself to us, He will speak to us.

The apostle Paul wrote in Romans 8:14, “those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” There’s only one way to have eternal life and that is Jesus Christ; He is the Way the Truth and the Life.

There’s only one way to follow Jesus Christ and have eternal life, and that is to obey Him. Once we have believed in Him, we must obey His commandments, repent, turn away from sin, be holy, turn away from our own desires, from serving ourselves, we must put Him on the throne of our lives and serve Him; we must be baptized in water and receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, the presence of Christ living in us, to guide us, to teach us. If we do not have the Holy Spirit, we cannot follow Jesus Christ; without the Holy Spirit we have no relationship with Jesus Christ. He promised His Spirit, the Holy Spirit in each and everyone who believes in Him and who obeys Him, His communion with them. They will know Him for real, they will know His voice and they will follow Him. Have you repented since you have heard the gospel of Jesus Christ? Have you accepted Him as your master? Do you serve and obey Him? Have you received the baptism in the Holy Spirit? Does the Holy Spirit of Christ live in you? Do you know His voice and do you follow Him? We have to follow Him until the very end. If we do not follow Jesus Christ and are not led by His Holy Spirit then we will never know Him and we will never enter His kingdom. Repent and be baptized, seek Jesus with all your heart be filled with the Holy Spirit, and follow Him, the guidance of His Holy Spirit and He will guide you every step of the way until the very end.

May Jesus bless you.

A Christian Dies and Goes to HELL – Testimony

On July 28th, 1998 I had a heart attack, I died and I found myself on my way to hell. The Lord Jesus had mercy on me and He let me come back. I was at that stage a saved man, I had accepted the Lord Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I was baptized in water, I was baptized in the Holy Spirit, I knew the voice of the Lord and He was speaking to me. But that morning I woke up with a terrible pain in my chest and I died. I found myself going down a deep black hole and I knew I was on my way to hell. I pleaded with the Lord Jesus to let me come back. He let me come back when I pleaded and asked and said:”Lord, let me go and tell the world, let me tell people, that this is real.”
Many people have asked me why it was that I was on my way to hell even though I was saved. Dear friends, the reason is that I was serving God, MY WAY. I was an above average Christian.. I was a serious Christian. I was a person who knew the voice of the Lord Jesus, but I was serving the Lord MY WAY. I was not fruitful. The only way that we can be fruitful is if we serve Jesus as disciples, HIS WAY, not my way, HIS WAY. Knowing the voice of the Lord is one thing but following Him, waiting on Him, serving Him as Master, that is another thing and that is what He requires of us. We cannot serve Jesus our way. He is not interested in that. We cannot bear fruit if we serve Him our way. I tried to reconcile being a Christian with being a business man, with living a “normal” life, like all the other Christians and I was under the impression that I was doing very well, but by God’s standard I came short, it wasn’t good enough, I was on my way to hell. It was the biggest fright I ever had in my life and since that day I have never been at ease again with Jesus because I fear Him, because I know that He has got ONE STANDARD, friends, and that is HIS WAY. We have got to seek Him, we have got to listen to His voice. What I think does not matter. My opinion, does not count. All that matters is Jesus. Is He pleased with me, is He satisfied with me? Am I obedient to Him? Am I doing what He wants me to do? Am I a disciple? Am I truly pleasing to Him?
Dear friends we can only be fruitful and pleasing to Jesus if we serve Him as LORD, as MASTER, if we wait on Him and if we DO what He TELLS us to do. I got to know Jesus. I love Him, I fear Him, I respect Him. I will die again. I will leave this body, but then I want to be ready. I want to be going UP, not DOWN and that is why I am following Jesus. I am working for His Kingdom.
God’s standard is not our standard, my friends. Jesus wants TOTAL, TOTAL devotion. He is calling you. Make sure that when your time comes, that you don’t find yourself going down the deep black hole.
May Jesus bless you.
