Are you in the RACE?

To follow Jesus Christ is a walk, a journey, a race, and we have to walk, journey, race, in such a way as to reach our destination, to enter into the kingdom of heaven. We have to compete in the race in such a way as to win the prize, which is eternal life.

The Apostle Paul wrote about this race in 1 Corinthians chapter 9: 24 “Do you not know that those who run in a race, all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. Therefore i run in such a way as not without aim; I box in such a way as not beating in the air, but I discipline my body and I make it my slave, so that, after i have preached to others, i myself will not be disqualified.”

To follow Jesus Christ with the expectation of winning the prize of eternal life in the end, means that we have to enroll for that race, and we have to compete; we have to run that race in accordance with the rules. We have to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, we have to live according to the words of Jesus Christ, and we need to be led by the Holy Spirit. We have to follow His guidance every step of the way, to find the way to enter into His kingdom. Most professing Christians have not ever entered that race. They do not know about the race, they have not heard about it. Most of them just believe that they are saved. They believe they have finished the race and they are waiting for the prize, while they have never competed. They do not understand that we have to, like Apostle Paul said, run the race with endurance until the end. We have to follow Jesus Christ until the end. Jesus said those who endure until the end will be saved.

Most professing Christians do not follow Jesus; they follow church, they are sitting in church and celebrating the victory, and they have never competed in the race. They have never walked the walk, they have never gone on their journey with Jesus Christ, they are not running the race with endurance. They do not know Jesus Christ, they never received the Holy Spirit, and they do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. They have a church, and a pastor, and they have Bibles, and they are deluded; they believe that they have salvation but they’ve never entered the race.

You enter the race by becoming born again of the Spirit of God; and to be born again, you need to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. You must repent, be baptized in water, and be filled with the Holy Spirit. You have to go after Jesus every day and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. You have to walk with Him, not with the Bible, not with the church, not with a pastor, not with other believers; they cannot help you. The only one who can guide you is Jesus Christ Himself, His Holy Spirit dwelling in you. Most believers do not have the Holy Spirit. They have an illusion of salvation, and they will be sorely disappointed when Jesus says to them: “Go away I never knew you.” They never enrolled for the race, they never qualified, they were never born again, they never started walking the walk, they never started following Jesus Christ.

Dear friend, are you in the rice? Are you following Jesus Christ every day” Or are you sitting in church? Do you have false security of salvation, while you never entered the race, you never started following Jesus Christ? Wake up, dear friend, seek Jesus now. Enter the race, comply with His requirements. Obey Him, be baptized in water be filled with the Holy Spirit, and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit everyday, or else you will not enter the kingdom of heaven, you will not win the prize. The prize is for overcomers, for those who follow Jesus Christ and endure with Him until the very end.

Are you in the race?

May Jesus bless you.

The Human Race is FALLEN

The human race is fallen and that is why it is separated from God. People have no desire for purity or holiness, righteousness. They have no conscience, even professing Christians; they are just hypocrites because in their heart they are sinners. Most of them live like the world. Even though they know the truth,they desire the same filth, they watch pornography, they are involved in incest and all kinds of immorality because they are fallen creatures, they are not fit for the kingdom of God.

I was like that, I was a Christian but I had backslidden. I was back into my old ways of sin and wickedness, unrighteousness. Many years ago when Jesus had mercy on me and He called me back to Him, I just realized that I was so deep in the muck and in the mire, in the sin and in my own wickedness, that there was no way that I could get out of it, that I could become pure and holy again, so that I could live in His presence, so that I can hear His voice and be a true child of God. When Jesus came knocking at my door and called me back to Him, I said:”Lord if you want me, I want to come back, I want to be Your child. I want to live in Your presence, but I’m asking one thing, and that is, that I want to be ONE person that you can be pleased with, all the time. I don’t want to be a hypocrite. I want to be a true son of God,” and Jesus picked me up He brought me into His presence, and I want to be holy. I want to be pleasing to Him. I hate sin and I avoid it at all cost, because I live in the company of God. I hear His voice, He speaks to me. Many people reject me, but I don’t care, I walk with Jesus. I hear His voice. Jesus calls us to holiness and righteousness, but we need to be born again, and only Jesus can change us inside to make us new, to be children of God. He who is in Christ, is a new creature; you do not want sin, you your hate filth, you cannot stand it. I used to smoke, now I cannot stand the smell of smoke. I used to look at the wrong things, watch TV, participate in the same things that many others do. I hate it, I avoided it. I don’t want it, that’s why I don’t watch TV. I want to keep my mind and my spirit pure for Jesus.

If we allow sin to come into our hearts, into our life, then that separates us from Jesus. The human race is fallen, but Jesus can pick you up. He can make your new, and if Jesus has made you knew, you’re not a sinner anymore. You can stumble, but you hate it, and you avoided at all costs, because you treasure His company and want to be pleasing to Him. I just thank Jesus and I praise Him that He picked me up out of the mud, He cleaned me up and I want to be pure and holy and clean for Him. I want to be suitable for His kingdom.

I want to share and old gospel song with you, because Jesus Christ lifted me up from the mud, the sin that I was bound in, and He made me free. I’m a child of God and I’m free to serve Jesus and do what is pleasing to Him.

“He lifted me up from the deep miry clay,

and He planted my feet

on the Kings high way, and this is the reason,

I sing and I shout, for Jesus came

down, and He lifted me up.”

Dear friend, are you fallen? Are you stuck in sin? Are you in bondage of addictions and of sin, the things of this world? Are you dirty, are you in the mud? Jesus can pull you out. He can pick you up. He can make your new creature, He can make you His, child so that you can be pure and holy, live in His presence. That is why Jesus came, to lift us from our fallen nature, so that we will be sons of God, will SIN NO MORE, but will walk with the King, and do the will of God.

Call on Jesus and He will pick you up.

May Jesus bless you.

Meaningful Prayer

Most people’s prayers are meaningless. They are just an idle repetition of words because they pray the same rhyme, the same words over and over again. Those prayers do not reach the throne of God. God does not listen to those prayers.

If we pray, then we must believe that God is listening. If we go to Jesus in prayer, we must be serious. If we do not believe that He is alive and that He hears our prayers, and that He cares for us, that He will answer our prayer, then we are wasting our time. Many people complain that when they go and pray, they have all kinds of thoughts entering their mind. Are they really praying? Are they really talking to Jesus? Or are they just repeating some senseless words, things that they believe are the right things to say.

If we do not speak to Jesus from our heart then we are wasting our time. If we recite prayers that are people have written, that is a meaningless repetition of words. Even if we recite the Lord’s prayer, it is meaningless, if we do not pray it with faith. If we do not mean what we are saying then we are playing into the air, we are wasting our time, because those prayers will not be answered. We have to pray, meaning it. We have to go to Jesus and pray what is in our heart. Prayer is our communication with God. If we just send loose words, rhymes idle repetition of words, into the air, in the hope that somewhere it will be caught up, that God my hear it, then we are wasting our time. We need to first believe that Jesus is real, that He is alive and we must go to Him meaning it. We must pray what is in your heart. If you have nothing to say, or you don’t know what to say; tell the Lord, say:”Lord I don’t know what to say.” Maybe you just feel lonely, or sad, and you’re looking for comfort; then go and pray, talk to Jesus. Tell Him how you feel, tell Him your anxiety, your confusion, your fear, your need. Speak to Him earnestly, from your heart, He will hear you, and He will answer you, but if you just repeat a lot of words, if you just go to Jesus with a shopping list; a list of the things that you want, do not think He will listen to your prayer. He answers those who pray to Him from the heart, who mean it, who are speaking to Him. Those who are not just praying into fresh air, just not saying idle words. If you go to Jesus in prayer, do so meaning it. You will receive an answer.

Many people say a prayer every night before they go to bed. That is useless, it’s meaningless. They just go to quickly ask forgiveness of their sins for the day and hope that they will be ok with God. They’re wasting their time. If you’re not serious about talking to Jesus, if you do not really have Him in your mind, and if your focus is not on Him, if your words do not come from your heart, and you’re not serious about it, then God will not hear your prayer. Jesus rewards those who diligently seeking Him, who pray to Him from the heart. Pray to Jesus from your heart, believing, and He will answer your prayers.

May Jesus bless you.

Jesus has NOT done it all for you

Many people have been deceived into believing that they only need to believe in Jesus Christ to have salvation. They believe that Jesus Christ has done it all for them, they don’t need to do anything, they only need to believe in Jesus and then when they die they will be received into heaven. That is not what Jesus Christ said.

Jesus said that if anyone wishes to come after Him, he must deny himself pick up his cross and follow Him every day. Jesus said:”If you love Me keep My Commandments.” Jesus said that:”Not everyone who says to Me Lord, Lord will enter into heaven, but those who do the will of my Father,” and then people quote scripture, they say it is the will of the Father that they believe in Jesus. That is true, but if we believe in Jesus, we must obey Him. Jesus Christ gives salvation to those who obey Him, those who obey His words. If we love Him, we will obey Him. If we truly believe in Him, we will believe His words. WE have to stop sinning, WE have to repent, WE have to be holy, WE have to turn from our wicked ways and follow Jesus Christ, WE have to go after Jesus. WE have to seek Him, WE have to be baptized in water in obedience to Jesus, WE have to live according to His words, WE have to strive hard to enter into the kingdom of heaven, because many will try and not be able.

Many believe that Jesus has done all of that for them and they cannot understand that when they believe in Jesus, that they are still tempted to do wrong, they still have wrong thoughts, they still have wrong desires, but they have never committed themselves to Jesus. Turn off the TV. Throw it out of your house, stop watching pornography. Jesus was very clear, He said if your right eye makes you stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you, it is better for you to go through life without one of their members than to end up in hell with a perfect body. YOU have to stop sinning, YOU have to do what is pleasing to Jesus, YOU have to seek Him. Jesus has not done it all for you. Jesus said:”Follow Me.” If you want eternal life, YOU have to follow Jesus, YOU have to obey Him. Jesus Christ promised his Holy Spirit to be in those who obey His words, his Commandments, as they are also recorded in the Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Repent and be baptized, turn away from your wicked ways, and live your life to please Jesus, in obedience to His words. Pray seek Him with all your heart, and He will reveal Himself to you. He will give His Holy Spirit in you to teach you and to guide you, but then you have to go after Him.

You have to listen, you have to seek Him every day until the very end. YOU have to endure with Him until the end. Many will try hard and not be able to enter the kingdom of heaven. Many will give up before the end of their lives, and they will end up in hell. You have to follow Jesus until the end.

Jesus has not done it all for you. YOU have to overcome, YOU have to overcome sin, YOU have to overcome the desires of the flesh, and YOU have to run the race with endurance until the very end, YOU have to go after Jesus every day of your life. It is a struggle and very few will make it. Jesus has not done at all for you dear friend. YOU have to walk the walk, YOU have to follow Jesus Christ until the very end.

Go and read the words of Jesus as they are recorded in the Gospel: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and WAKE UP. Wake up to the truth, get down on your knees and repent, seek Jesus with all your heart, and obey Him or else you will perish. Go after Him follow Him until the very end. There is only one way to have eternal life, and that is to follow Jesus until the end. May Jesus bless you

Jesus Christ is Lord and He is alive.

The Secret Of Being TAUGHT By God

God wants to teach each of His children. It is written:”All your children will be taught by God.” Jesus Christ is our Teacher and if we are born again then we must be taught by Him. Jesus did not appoint other people, teachers, to teach His followers. He teaches them Himself. He gives His Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, in those who obey Him, those who obey His words.
If you repent, and are baptized in water, and you seek Jesus with all your heart, you will be born again, and He will give His Holy Spirit in you to teach and guide you. Many believers do not know that God speaks. They do not know that they must ask of Him, and He will teach and He will guide them. Many do not want to be taught by Jesus. Many are rebellious, they want to follow the own mind. Others want to teach themselves, they educate themselves from the Bible, and from listening to preachers and teachers of their own choice, and that is why they are in darkness. But, if we want to follow Jesus we must only be taught by Him because He will teach and guide us, but we must seek Him. We must go after Him.
We must pray, we must seek His will. We must ask Him to teach us, ask Him to guide us, and expect Him. Get your focus on Jesus, seek Him with all your heart. Live your life to please Him, and He will teach and guide you. He will give you understanding. We will not have any excuse one day when we stand before Jesus and we refused to be taught by Him. He will say to most believers:”Go away, I never knew you, you workers of wickedness,” because they were not taught by Him; they were not interested in Him. Most believers listen to other people. They believe in the Bible but they do not what the Bible says; they do not obey the commands of Jesus as recorded in the Bible. Jesus said:”Follow Me.” Jesus said:”My sheep hear My voice, they listen to Me and they follow Me.” Most believers do not hear His voice, they do not seek Him, they do not obey His words, they do not seek revelation from Jesus. They follow their own mind and they follow other people, and that is why most believers will perish; because they only believe that they have salvation. They believe in their own doctrines, they believe in what other people tell them, but they do not trust nor follow Jesus Christ.
Most believers have never repented, most of them have not been baptized in water, most believers have not received the Holy Spirit, most believers are not born again, and most believers will end up in hell, because they never became disciples of Jesus Christ ;they were never taught by Him. They did not trust nor obey Jesus, they did not receive nor follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit that He sent to teach us and to guide us into all truth. Have you received the Holy Spirit? Do you follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit? Do you know the Master’s voice? Do you listen to Him and are you taught by Him? Do you really know Jesus Christ? The secret of being taught by God is that we must desire to be taught by Him. We must seek Jesus with all our heart always, we must live our lives to please Him. We must trust Him alone and wait on Him. Jesus rewards those who diligently seek Him, who go after Him.
Most believers only go after their own desires, their own plans, and they just want fire insurance; they don’t want to end up in hell. They will end up in help if they do not seek Jesus with all their heart and if they are not taught by Him. Jesus Christ is our only teacher, and if we do not obey Him, we will perish.
Seek Jesus with all your heart, and He will reveal Himself to you. He will give His Holy Spirit in you to teach and guide you, and you will know Him for real, you will live in fellowship with Him and He will reveal Himself to you.
May Jesus bless you.

The PAIN of Leaving Church

Church organizations are man-made institutions that do not and cannot submit themselves to Jesus Christ, because they are not part of the kingdom of God. The church serves itself and not the kingdom of God. Many people are born into church and they are indoctrinated into the doctrines and the teachings of the church. Those believers who are serious about their eternal destination and their relationship with Jesus Christ quickly discover that the teachings and the doctrines of the church do not line up with the words of Jesus Christ, that are the words of eternal life. If they start questioning the teachings and doctrines of the church they are quickly branded as troublemakers and they are pushed out, they are excluded.
Many people who discover the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ become unsettled in their church and they seek the truth. When they confront the leadership of the church organization with the truth they are branded as troublemakers and heretics, and they get pushed out of the church. It is extremely unsettling for these people to be pushed out of the church that they have been in since they were born or since they first believed in Jesus Christ. But the only way to follow Jesus Christ is to separate yourself from the church and its doctrines. You cannot be part of a church organization and part of the kingdom of God. You cannot serve two masters,you cannot be loyal to the church and be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
When you oppose the church organization with the truth, the persecution starts. The persecution and can be severe and many people cannot handle the rejection by those people who who once where their friends, their fellow believers, but you have to make up your mind and follow Jesus Christ if you want to go after Him.
Many people get so involved in trying to correct the errors of the church that they do not even realize that they themselves, even though they have discovered the shortcomings of the church, that they themselves are not suitable for the kingdom of heaven; that they themselves are not following Jesus Christ. They fail to realize that it is about their relationship with Jesus Christ. You cannot change the church organization, you have to work out your own relationship with Jesus Christ.
Separate yourself from everything and everybody that stands between you and the truth, between you and following Jesus Christ. You need to work on your own relationship with Jesus. Get out of church and get into your prayer closet. Start seeking Jesus Christ with all your heart and you will discover many more
lies that you have been taught ,that you’ve been indoctrinated with, you will discover many more things that you believed to be true, that are actually deception. Jesus Christ will guide us into all truth if we follow Him. There is only one way to walk in truth and that is to be led by the Holy Spirit of God and when you walk with Jesus you will find yourself on your own, with Jesus, for most of the time. Following Jesus Christ is a lonely road. You will not find much fellowship with other believers who are serious about following Jesus, but your fellowship will be with Jesus Christ Himself. Once you have secured your own relationship with Jesus Christ and you have become a disciple, a true follower of Jesus Christ, you will be able to make other disciples, to bring others into fellowship with Jesus Christ, and that is what Jesus Christ call us for. Man-made church organizations are Antichrist, they only benefit themselves. Separate yourself from those. Go after Jesus Christ. Seek Him with all your heart He will guide you, and He will each you. Stay with Him until the very end and you will have eternal life. Jesus Christ alone is the way the truth and the life, follow Him.
May Jesus bless you.

Polluted Minds

Jesus Christ said that without holiness no man shall see God. Holiness is a choice. There are so many influences in this world by which the minds of people are polluted, with free access to pornography on the internet and every where, even children from a young age have free access to internet and their minds are polluted. They have free access to pornography and evil influences, but holiness is a choice. You choose to allow yourself to be polluted, your mind, by absorbing that which is wrong, or you turn away your eye from the evil. I read the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew chapter 5:27 “You have heard that it was said you shall not commit adultery, but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If you’re right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is
better for you to lose one of the parts of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you, for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.”
Holiness is a choice . We can choose what we look at, we can choose what we absorb into our minds, because that which goes
into your mind eventually ends up in your actions. If we think evil, if we look at evil, if we absorb evil, then by the judgment of God we have already done those things, we are polluted, unholy, and without holiness no man shall see
God.
We have to purify ourselves of all unrighteousness, we have to be pure and holy, to live in the presence of a holy God. We have to be pure and holy to enter the kingdom of God. If we allow ourselves to be polluted by this world, by sin, pornography, and by the filth that is presented in the media, then we will end
up in hell. Then we are not suitable for the kingdom of heaven.
Holiness is a choice. Without holiness no man shall see God.
May Jesus bless you.
