There are some believers who have the Holy Spirit but they do not have Jesus Christ. Some have received Spiritual
Gifts but they do not have the Giver. Once they received the gifts they thought that they have security of salvation. They said:”Lord, You give me the the Gifts and then I will take care of myself.” They have turned away from Jesus Christ and they trust in the gifts that they received from Him. they have churches, ministries, and many people follow after these people. They exercise the gifts but neither they nor their followers are following Jesus Christ.
Jesus said that He will say to many in that day:”Go away I never knew you, ” and they will say:”Lord, Lord we prophesied and we healed the sick, we cast out demons,” and He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you.” Many want the GIFTS but they don’t want the GIVER.
God never takes back His gifts but if we do not follow Him, if we do not OBEY Him, we will PERISH. We have to OBEY Jesus, deny ourselves, pick up our cross and follow Him every day, or else He will turn us away. We will not enter His kingdom.
Without Jesus Christ we are LOST. We have to FOLLOW Him, OBEY Him and stay with Him until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.
We are always BEFORE Jesus Christ but very few stay WITH HIM. Many believers go and pray and spend some time WITH Jesus but after they prayed they do not stay WITH Him. They go their own way and they follow their own mind, they go after their own things and they forget about Jesus. They are still before Him but they are not WITH Him.
Even those who have received the Holy Spirit, most of them do not stay IN HIS PRESENCE, they do not stay WITH Him. They do not follow after Him. They might set some time aside for prayer and meditation but then after they have spent that special time with Jesus, they leave Him, they ignore Him. They go their own way and they go and do other things.
We have to stay WITH Jesus, stay IN HIS PRESENCE. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit and He dwells in us but we have to STAY WITH HIM, we have to FOLLOW Him. We can only be pleasing to Him if we remain IN HIS PRESENCE, if we maintain that AWARENESS, stay FOCUSED on Him throughout the day, wherever we go, whatever we are , we must always have Jesus on our mind, do everything to please Him and ask His approval, His guidance in everything. We have to go where He sends us and do what He tells us, then we remain IN HIS PRESENCE, then we FOLLOW Him, very few do.
Do you stay in His presence? Do you stay WITH Jesus? Is your mind on Him, constantly? Or do you go away from Him from time to time?
We can only PLEASE HIM if we STAY WITH Him. We have to remain IN HIS PRESENCE.
May Jesus bless you.
Salvation is not just about repentance, to stop sinning and be holy. It is about FOLLOWING Jesus Christ and staying with Him until the very end. Without Jesus there is no hope, no life, no salvation.
If we do not follow Jesus Christ we will perish. Jesus Christ is the WAY and the TRUTH and the LIFE. If you stop sinning but you do not follow Jesus Christ then you will still not have eternal life. You have to follow and obey Jesus. Obey His words, repent , turn away from sin and TURN TO JESUS. Obey His words, be baptized in water for the washing off of your sin and then, deny yourself, pick up your cross every day and follow Jesus Christ. Go after Jesus Christ, whatever the cost, whether people might reject you, whether they might not like you, whether you are persecuted or not, you go with Jesus.
Jesus Christ promised the Holy Spirit to those who OBEY Him, the Spirit of TRUTH that He gives in those who repent and who are baptized. If we do not have the Spirit of Christ then we do not belong to Him. If we do not have the Holy Spirit we cannot follow Jesus Christ. Those who are lead by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God, and the Holy Spirit will not guide you into sin. He will guide you into doing the will of God, into bearing FRUIT. Jesus said that “without Me you can do nothing”. It is the will of God that we bear much fruit, but we can only bear fruit if we follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit and we DO the WORKS that Jesus prepared for us, if we follow Him every day. But if we turn away from Him and follow our own mind then we are already in danger of hell fire. It is not just about to stop sinning, it is about following Jesus Christ. It is not about going to church and having Christian friends. It is a lonely walk on the straight and narrow road, a walk with Jesus Christ. The world will reject you, they will shun you. It doesn’t matter, as long as you stay with Jesus Christ, that is all that matters.
When people start following Jesus Christ they become alone. The world rejects them. Family reject them. Churches reject them, so-called Christians reject them. If you follow Jesus Christ you will find yourself ALONE with Him most of the time.
Do not look for the fellowship or the company of other Christians. Look for the fellowship of Jesus Christ and to be pleasing to Him. Look for the guidance of the Holy Spirit, for the approval of Jesus Christ. That is all that matters, because without Jesus we have no life. Without Jesus Christ we are LOST.
Jesus Christ is the WAY. Obey Him and follow Him. Follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit every day until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.
Most Christian believers are nor fruitful for the kingdom of God and the reason why they are not fruitful is because they are not IN Christ. Jesus explained, as it is also recorded in the gospel of John chapter 15, that if we do not remain IN HIM, we cannot bear fruit. On our own we can do nothing. If we are not led by the Holy Spirit we cannot do what is pleasing to Him.
Most Christian believers are busy with other things. They are not WAITING on Jesus, they are not led by the Holy Spirit. The are doing Bible study, or they are listening to other people, or they are following their own minds. Their mind is not on Christ. They are not TUNED IN to the Holy Spirit and therefor they are UNFRUITFUL. We can only be fruitful in the kingdom of God if we are led by the Spirit of God and if we DO what the Holy Spirit guides us into doing. He will not force us, He will GUIDE us IF we follow Him, if we go after Him, if we SEEK the will of God, if we SEEK Jesus Christ in prayer, if our mind is on Him all the time, if we ask Him for wisdom and guidance and we stay focused on Him, then He can use us. Then He will speak to us. He will teach us, He will guide us, He will reveal new things to us, but if we go and seek for revelation or guidance or teaching from other places, if we listen to other people then we will not hear Jesus speaking to us. He will not compete with other voices.
His sheep listen to His voice and they follow Him. They WAIT on Him UNTIL He speaks to them, WHEN He speaks to them and they DO what He tells them to do. They are His SERVANTS and therefor they bear fruit.
Every tree that does not bear good fruit will get cut off and burned. Every branch in Christ that does not bear fruit will get cut off and burned.
Most believers are only concerned about THEIR salvation, THEIR dedication to Jesus, or to the church, THEIR Bible study. It is not about YOU or ME dear friend. It is about the kingdom of God, it is about the KING, Jesus Christ, WAITING on Him, LISTENING, OBEYING Him, being in tune with Him every moment of our lives. Nothing happens without purpose in the life of a child of God. He guides our footsteps. All things are His SERVANTS, and if out eyes are on Jesus and our hearts are PURE we will SEE God, we will see His hand, we will HEAR Him and we will RECOGNIZE His VOICE when He speaks to us.
Are we fruitful? Are we being led by the Holy Spirit? Are we doing what the Master commands us to do or are we just religious and deceiving ourselves? We have to seek His approval, His guidance, His peace, His wisdom. We have to seek Jesus Christ and stay IN HIM to be able to bear fruit.
How is our fruit? Is Jesus Christ pleased with our fruit?
May Jesus bless you.
There are many people in the world who call themselves Christians. They all say that they believe in Jesus Christ, they all use the same Bible but there is no unity among them. They belong to different churches and groups and they all have different teachings from the same Bible. They argue among each other about Scripture, about how they understand the Bible and what they believe. The truth is that these people do not know Jesus Christ because they ARE NOT OF THE SAME SPIRIT.
Those who are born again of the Spirit of Christ, those who have the Spirit of Christ, they are in UNITY because they are of the SAME SPIRIT. Those who do not have the Spirit of Christ do not belong to Him, they have different spirits. They do not have Salvation, they do not have Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ said that His sheep listen to His voice and they follow Him. His sheep are of the SAME SPIRIT. They might come from different countries, they might speak different languages but they have the SAME SPIRIT, the Holy Spirit. Therefor they are ONE in Christ. They are not divided.
Are you born again? Have you received the Spirit of Christ? Are you of the SAME SPIRIT or do you not belong to Jesus Christ? Have you received the Holy Spirit?
May Jesus bless you.
Jesus Christ is the Bread of Life. Man shall not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the MOUTH of God. Jesus is the Word of God, sent from the Father to bring us the Words of Eternal Life.
Those who believe in Jesus will never die but most people do not believe in Jesus even though they say they believe, because they do not OBEY His words. The words of Jesus, those words that He spoke, taught and commanded, are the words of Eternal Life. Those words, as also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, those are the words of Eternal Life. The words that Jesus Christ speaks through His Holy Spirit, in those who OBEY Him, who OBEY His words, who REPENT, who are BAPTIZED IN WATER and who have received the Holy Spirit, those are the words of Eternal Life.
Those who are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God, because they truly believe in Jesus Christ, but those who disobey the words of Jesus, who reject the Holy Spirit and who refuse to be led by the Holy Spirit, they will perish because they do not EAT the BREAD OF LIFE, THEY DO NOT accept Jesus Christ, they do not BELIEVE in Him. His words are the words of Eternal Life for those who OBEY Him, for those who TRULY believe in Him.
Do you believe in Jesus Christ? Do you OBEY Him, because if you do not OBEY His words you will PERISH. Do you EAT the Bread of Life every day and do you live by the words of Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
Most Christian believers are not saved. A person who is saved does not sin because he is born of the Spirit of God. Jesus Christ came to take away the sins of the world and those who accept Him and repent of sin are given the NEW BIRTH, they are BORN AGAIN, they are born of the SEED of God, so they CANNOT SIN because they are of God. They are of good seed, not of bad seed. If you plant good seed then you will get a good yield but if you plant weeds then you will grow weeds.
Most believers were planted by satan, not by Jesus Christ, that is why they sin, they are BAD SEED, They are TARES. Jesus gave us the parable of the TARES in Matthew 13:24 “He presented another parable to them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25“But while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares also among the wheat, and went away. 26“But when the wheat sprang up and bore grain, then the tares became evident also. 27“And the slaves of the landowner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28“And he said to them, ‘An enemy has done this!’ And the slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go and gather them up?’29“But he said, ‘No; lest while you are gathering up the tares, you may root up the wheat with them. 30‘Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
The difference between the wheat and the tares is that the wheat grows grain and the tares are just weeds. They SIN, they are not born of the Spirit of God, they are BAD SEED and therefor those believers who sin, who are SINNERS, who are of bad seed, will be burned, they will end up in hell. Many of them believe they are saved but they are SINNERS. They are no good for the kingdom of heaven, they will be cut off and burned.
If we are born again of the Spirit of God we do not sin because we are of different seed. We read the words of the apostle John in 1 John 3:5.
“You know that He (Jesus Christ) appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. 6No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. 7Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; 8the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 9No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.”
It is obvious who is a child of God and who is a son of the devil. It is obvious who is wheat and who is tares. It is obvious that those who practice righteousness are of God but those who sin are of the devil and they will perish. A believer who keeps on sinning is not born again, he is not saved, he is not a child of God and he will perish.
Are we SAVED from sin? Have we stopped sinning? Are we born again? Are we of the seed of God or are we just SINNERS? Because sinning believers are NOT SAVED. They will end up in hell if they do not REPENT and bear good fruit.
May Jesus bless you.
