Just Not Serious

Most Christian believers are not serious about Jesus Christ and that is why they will end up in hell. They do not really believe in Jesus. They do not really believe that He is Lord. They do not believe that He is the One who will determine whether they go into heaven or into hell and that is why they disregard Him. They do not fear Him and they do not obey Him. Some say they love Him, but if they did they would obey His commands.

Jesus said:”If you love Me, obey My commands.” Most Christian believers couldn’t care about Jesus. They care about other things. They care about themselves, their own life, their church, their status, everything other but Jesus Christ. He is not on their list of priorities. They do not really believe the words of Jesus. If they were serious about Jesus and they did truly believe they would be very careful to obey His words, because His words are the words of eternal life. Jesus Christ came to give us the words of eternal life and they were recorded in the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the words of Jesus, the words by which we will be judged. If we disobey Jesus we will perish. Those who disobey Jesus are already judged. If we truly believe that Jesus is the way and the truth and the life we will follow Him, but most believers are not serious, they don’t believe in Jesus. They believe their own ideologies, their own theories. They don’t care for Jesus and that is why they will perish.

Jesus gave many stark warnings. He said:”If you deny Me before men, I will deny you before My heavenly Father and His holy angels.” Jesus said if you look at a woman to lust after her you have already committed adultery in your heart and you’re guilty before God. The words of Jesus are very harsh words, they are very hard words and therefor people rather want to talk around it, disregard it, discount it to their own detriment. If we do not obey Jesus we will not enter His kingdom. Jesus said that if we obey His words, if we repent, turn away from all sin, turn to Him, if we seek Him with all our

heart, if we are baptized in water as He commanded and we ask Him, then He will give us the Holy Spirit, His Spirit to come and guide us, to be with us. He promised that He will reveal Himself to us. He will speak to us. People don’t believe. That is why they do not obey Jesus. They don’t take Him seriously. That is why they don’t hear His voice, they don’t know His voice and they will end up in hell. Jesus said and He will say to many religious people:”Go away, I never knew you you workers of wickedness,” even though these people were preachers, they cast out demons, performed many miracles in the name of Jesus. He will say to them:”Go away, I never knew you.” They were not interested Jesus, they just used His Name for their own benefit. They were not serious about following Him, they did not hear His voice, they did not want to hear His voice.

Jesus will reveal Himself to everyone who seeks Him but people are not serious. Jesus promised that if we seek Him with all our heart, if we obey His words, He will reveal Himself to us. Him and the Father will come and dwell with us. But people don’t believe, they’re not serious, they’re not interested, they don’t want Jesus to be with them. They I want to be with other things. They occupy themselves with other things that appeal more to them. Jesus is an offense to them. They don’t take Him seriously, that is why they will perish. Jesus Christ is the only way, whether you like it or not. It’s either His way, or no way. Ether we love Him, obey Him, fear Him, do whatever He tells us to do or when we stand before Him one day in judgment, He will say:”You were not interested in Me. You had no business with me. I have no place for you. Go away.”

Do we believe? Are we serious about Jesus? If we are, we will show it by our deeds, we will not allow anything from stopping us to do what Jesus requires. Most believers are not serious about Jesus Christ. Are we serious about Jesus?

May Jesus bless you.

Go to the SOURCE

There is only one way to be saved, to have salvation, to have eternal life, and that is to go to the source of that salvation, and the Source of that salvation is Jesus Christ alone. The person, Jesus Christ, there is no other. There is no other way to have salvation but through Jesus Christ. We read in Hebrews 5:8 “Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered, and having been made perfect He became to all those who obey Him, the SOURCE of eternal salvation. Jesus Christ alone is the way. There is no other way to have salvation. There is no other path to follow. You cannot find salvation through any other person, not by going to church, not by reading your Bible. You have to go to Jesus and you have to obey Him, because He is the source of eternal salvation for those who obey Him.

What did Jesus command? Jesus said:”Follow Me.” What we need to do is to, turn to Jesus. Turn away from sin, turn away from our own ways, turn away from all other ways, turn away from following after other people and ideologies, and go to the Source, go to Jesus and obey Him. Repent, turn away from those things, turn away from sin, ask Jesus forgiveness, and He will grant us forgiveness. But then we have to obey Him, be baptized in water, as He commanded, and He promised that He will give His Spirit, the Holy Spirit, in us to teach us and to guide us. Jesus Christ Himself, will come and dwell in us. He will be with us. He will reveal Himself to us. He is the Source. There is no other source, there is no other way to have eternal life. Have you come to the Source, Jesus Christ, and are you staying with the Source of eternal life of salvation? Or have you turned away from Jesus? Only Jesus can help us. Only Jesus can give us the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Only Jesus can give us Salvation, nothing and nobody else. We have to go to Jesus. There is no person in this world, no other mediator, no other person that we can speak to, that can save us.

Go to Jesus. As Jesus said to the Pharisees who were looking for salvation in the scriptures, He said:”You diligently search the Scriptures in there to find eternal life, but you refuse to come to Me to have life.” Jesus Christ the is the way and the life and the truth, He is the source. If we want life, we must go to the Source and we must stay with the Source until the very end of our lives. If we go away from Jesus we will perish. There is only one way, go to the Source, Jesus Christ.

May Jesus bless you.

A Real WALK With Jesus

The only way to have salvation eternal life is to follow Jesus Christ, to be in a real a walk with Him. How does that come about? If we hear the gospel of Jesus and we believe, we have to obey Him, repent, turn away from sin, and accept Jesus into our life as our Lord and Master. We have to pray, plead His forgiveness for our past sins, and commit to follow and obey Him for the rest of our lives. If we do that, He forgives our past sins and He writes His laws in our heart, His commands, His requirements, so that we know what He requires of us, how we should, live in holiness and in righteousness. And then we have to further obey Him, be baptized in water for the washing off of our sins.

Jesus promised to give His Holy Spirit in us, to teach us and to guide us, every step of the way. Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God. If we do not have the Holy Spirit and we do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we cannot walk with Jesus, we cannot follow Him. We need to obey Him, repent and be baptized, so that we will be born again of water and of the Spirit of God, but then we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit. We need the power and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, because without Jesus we can do nothing.

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ. He is the Comforter and we cannot follow Jesus and do what is pleasing to Him, if we do not have the Holy Spirit, if we do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Many believe in Jesus and they think they have salvation but they do not have the Holy Spirit, neither do they obey the guidance of the Holy Spirit. They have no relationship with Jesus. Many are preachers and other believers who go out in the streets and they witness, they preach and heal the sick in the name of Jesus. They cast out demons, and Jesus said that many of those will stand before Him and He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you you workers of wickedness,” because these people did not follow Jesus. They were not led by the Holy Spirit, they had no relationship with Jesus. We need to be filled with the Holy Spirit and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ, and if we do not have the Spirit of Christ, we do not belong to Him. We cannot follow Him and we cannot be pleasing to Him.

Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to each and every one who believes in Him and who obeys Him, who repents and is baptized in water. The Holy Spirit will remind us of the commands of Jesus, the words that He spoke, as they are also recorded in the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. You don’t need a Bible to follow Jesus you need, the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit will be with us forever; but we have to obey Him. Many have Bibles and they have read the words of Jesus in the Bible, but they do not obey them. Those who have the Holy Spirit are constantly reminded, convicted by the Holy Spirit. Te Holy Spirit prompts them and speaks to them, reveals to them the will of God, reveals to them whether they are pleasing to Jesus or not, The Holy Spirit guides us into all truth, tells us about things to come, guides us in all things.

We cannot follow Jesus without the Holy Spirit. We need a real relationship with Jesus, which only can be had, by the indwelling Holy Spirit and us following the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Have you been born again? Did you repent were you baptized in water and have you received the indwelling Holy Spirit of Christ in you? Do you follow and obey Him? Do you truly know Jesus or will Jesus also say to you go:”Go away I never knew you, you worker of wickedness,” because you did not do the will of God, because you had no relationship with Him. We need the Holy Spirit to teach and to guide us. The Spirit of Christ will guide us into all truth. We cannot follow Jesus by following after other sheep, other Christians, other followers of Jesus. We cannot follow Jesus by reading the Bible. We need to be led by the Holy Spirit to please Him, to get to know Him for real, to follow Him and to enter His kingdom.

Have you received the Holy Spirit? Do you follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit and is your walk, your relationship with Jesus Christ real?

May Jesus bless you.

Jesus Requires OBEDIENCE

Jesus Christ requires obedience from those who believe in Him. Many think that if I just believe in Jesus they will have salvation. Others think that if they go to church, belong to a church, give to charity then they have salvation. Jesus said:”If you love Me, obey My commands” and Jesus commanded that we repent, be baptized in water, and then He promised His Holy Spirit to come and be with us, to guide, us to teach us.

Those who disobey Jesus will not have eternal life. Those who disobey Jesus are not suitable for His kingdom. Jesus is Lord, we must serve Him and obey Him or else we will not enter His kingdom. Those who disobey Jesus will perish.

May. Jesus bless you.

Bible Believers do not Understand

This generation has embraced knowledge because they believe that knowledge is power, but they lack understanding. The Bible of believing Christians of this generation have embraced knowledge of the scriptures but they have rejected Jesus Christ, therefore they lack understanding. They do not understand the kingdom of God and they cannot understand that Jesus Christ is God. They wrestle with the scriptures, they keep on studying and they keep on learning but they never come to the knowledge of the truth, yet they are very quick to offer an explanation or their interpretation of the scriptures. They are deceived and lost, they do not understand, but Jesus Christ gives understanding to those who accept Him.

Jesus Christ was also rejected by the Pharisees who were the Bible believers of the time. Jesus did not fit into their interpretation of the scriptures. They did not understand that He was the Messiah that they were expecting, because they did not accept Him. They rather clung to their scriptures. They could not understand the kingdom of God. We read in Matthew 11, they came to Jesus and asked Him about John the Baptist. We read from verse 12: “Jesus said:From the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and violent men take it by force for all the prophets and the Law prophesied until John and if you are willing to accept it John himself is Elijah who was to come. He who has ears to hear let him hear.” and Jesus goes on and He talks about that unbelieving generation, verse 16: “But to what shall I compare this generation it is like children sitting in the marketplaces who call out to the other children and say:”We played the flute for you and you did no dance we sang a dirge and you do not mourn, for John came neither eating nor drinking and they said:”He has a demon.” The Son of man came eating and drinking and they say:”behold a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners,” yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.’

They did not accept Jesus Christ because He did not fit into the picture that they had in their mind from studying the scriptures. We read further verse 20″ “and then He began to denounce the cities and which most of his miracles were done because they did not repent what do you Chorazin. Woe to you Bethsaida, for if the miracles had occurred in Tyre and Sidon, which occurred in you then they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes, nevertheless I say to you it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you. And you Capernaum will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will descend to Hades for if the miracles had occurred in Sodom which occurred in you it would have remained to this day. Nevertheless I say to you that it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the Day of Judgment than for you.” They did not believe in Jesus. They do not accept Him they saw the miracles that Jesus did and yet they rejected Him. They do not believe in Him.

The very same with this generation. They believe in the Scriptures and they look for salvation in the scriptures, but they reject Jesus Christ and therefore they cannot see nor understand the Kingdom of God. They cannot understand that Jesus Christ is the King of the kingdom of God and that we have to serve Him to be part of His kingdom. But these things are hidden. The truth is hidden from those who are wise in their own estimation, from the Bible believers, those who look for salvation from their own intellect, them from those who think that they have the power of knowledge. We read further Jesus said in verse 25: “at that time Jesus said:”I praise You Father Lord of Heaven and Earth that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. Yes Father, for this way was well pleasing in Your sight. All things have been handed over to Me by my Father and no one knows the Son except the Father, nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.” Bible believers do not understand the kingdom of God. They do not understand that they have to know and serve the King, Jesus Christ. They occupy themselves with the scriptures. They are forever looking for new interpretations of the scriptures, looking for new prophecies to decipher, instead of going to Jesus and receiving wisdom from Him, because He gives to those who believe in Him and who ask Him.

As the Apostle John also wrote in 1st John 5:20. Listen carefully! “And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know Him, who is true, and we are in Him, who is true, in His son Jesus Christ, this is the true God and eternal life.” That is who Jesus is, Jesus is God and He reveals Himself to those who believe in Him, those who seek Him,those who ask Him. He gives wisdom and understanding to those who come to Him like little children. And those who seek wisdom in the scriptures and in the writings and interpretations of other people, it remains closed to them. They do not understand, and sadly they never get to know Jesus, and they will end up in hell because just like those cities that rejected Jesus, they reject Jesus Christ Himself. They do not know Him. They do not have His Spirit, they do not have understanding, because they reject the truth, they reject Jesus Christ.

Understanding does not come from various studies and from knowledge gained from reading, it comes from Jesus Christ. He gives understanding to children, to babes, to the uneducated, to those who believe in Him, those who ask Him. If you ask Jesus He will give you understanding. Many keep on reading the Bible without understanding, they have various interpretations and various theories. That is why there are so many churches. That is why there are so many Bible students with different ideas and theories, but they have no knowledge of God. They do not have the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit is ONE, Jesus is ONE, there is only one truth and Jesus will reveal that truth to you if you seek Him and you believe Him. If you just ask Him He will give you understanding.

May Jesus bless you.

The Blessing of Suffering

God is good to all His children. When we accept Jesus Christ and are born again we become children of God, and God takes care of us. He teaches us His ways and one of the ways in which He teaches us His ways is through His discipline. He often uses suffering to teach us His ways.

The purpose of suffering is to test us to see what is in our heart. Are we serious about Jesus? Are we serious about obeying Him, following Him and living according to His words. He also uses suffering to humble us and to give us understanding. God used suffering to test Job, and when he was in his distress his wife said to him:”Why don’t you curse God and die.” Job never sinned against God and proved that he was faithful and true to God. God used suffering to discipline the children of Israel. We read in Deuteronomy 8:3 “He humbled you and let you be hungry and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor that your fathers know that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”

We often become arrogant because we do not understand that it is the hand of God that supports us, and that keeps us alive. It is good that we develop ourselves, that we work hard, but when we become proud and arrogant and we think that it is by our own power that we are gaining wealth and that things are going well with us, then God often closes all the doors. All our plans fall to pieces. In spite of our talent, our experience, our education, things don’t work out. We might lose our job, our business might fall to pieces and then we realize that even with our best effort we are not able to contain everything. We are not able to live our lives the way that we wish, because without God we can do nothing, without Jesus we can do nothing.

The medical profession has its place and medicine has its place but when God puts a sickness on you where medication cannot take the pain away, the doctor cannot help, then you realize that there is a Power that is greater than all of this, and this is what God does with His children. Many of them are going through suffering and they do not understand why. They are children of God, they are serious about God, but they are in suffering. their lives are falling to pieces, but they do not understand that they are being tested. Am I faithful to Jesus? Do I really trust Him, or do I trust in myself more than Him? Is Jesus my Healer or do I trust more in medication and in the doctor? Do I have other idols? God is testing me. We become so proud, we think that we can control our destiny, that we can make our lives, we can build our own fortunes, and then God destroys our plans everything falls to pieces. How do we react? Do we curse God? Do we go against God, or do we see His hand in this? Do we humble ourselves before Him and say:”Lord, Thy will be done.”? Because all His ways are loving kindness. He cares for us and He will never leave us. He will never forsake us and therefore He often uses these severe methods, severe suffering to bring us to our senses, to test us, to try us, to humble us, to give us understanding, that life comes from Him.

All good things come from Him. Without Jesus we can do nothing. How do we react to suffering? How do we react to the test, to the discipline that He puts us through? Do we become hateful and resentful toward God and show what is in our heart that we are not serious about Him that we are selfish and arrogant? Or do we humble ourselves and say:”Lord teach me Thy ways.” Do we become humble before Him and do we gain understanding? It is the will of God that we learn understanding, that we learn that man will not live from bread alone, that man will not live from his own endeavors alone. If the Lord does not build the house it is in vain that those build it work on it. If the Lord does not guard the city in vain does the guardman watch because, God keeps us safe. It is Jesus that determines our life and we need to learn to understand that is the discipline that God is putting on us, the suffering that He is putting us through, is it teaching us wisdom? Are we being proven to truly love Him and trust Him? Are we allowing ourselves to be humbled by Him and are we learning to trust in Him in all situations so that we can know that without Him we can do nothing, but nothing is impossible with Jesus Christ. He can do all things. Let us submit ourselves to the Master let us listen to Him when He speaks to us. Let us accept His discipline and learn from Him. Let us gain understanding and allow Him to change us and to mold us into His likeness so that we can fit into the kingdom of God. He we started the good work in us will complete it if we stay with Him, if we submit to Him and allow Him to form us and to make us so that we can be to His glory.

May Jesus bless you.

Beware of the FALSE Gospel of Jesus Christ that is preached

The false a gospel of Jesus Christ that is being preached in the world today will take countless souls to hell. It is fruitless to believe in Jesus Christ for salvation if we do not obey His words. The gospel of Jesus Christ, the gospel that saves is the words that Jesus spoke, the words that Jesus delivered when He walked this earth, as they are also recorded in Matthew Mark Luke and John.

If we believe in Jesus for salvation but we do not obey His words, then we are only fooling ourselves, because Jesus said, if we love Him we will obey His commands. Jesus said that not everyone that says to Him “Lord, Lord” will enter into heaven, but those who do the will of His Father. The words that Jesus spoke were the words of the Father, those were the words of eternal life, and we can only have eternal life if we live by those words, if we obey them. Those who disobey Jesus Christ will perish even though they believed in Him.

If we truly believe in Jesus we will do what He commanded. Jesus said:”Follow Me.” He commands us to repent, not only of sin but of living a senseless life that centers around ourselves. We have to live for the kingdom of God and obey the King, Jesus Christ Himself. We have to live according to His words. He said:”repent and be baptized.” We need to turn away from sin, turn away from living for ourselves and our own desires, and live in obedience to Jesus. We have to die to sin, die to earthly desires, in order to live for the kingdom of God. Go and read the words of Jesus in the gospel for yourself and you will learn that He requires absolute obedience, absolute dedication. He said if we wish to come after Him, if we wish to have eternal life, we have to deny ourselves pick up our cross every day and follow Him. We have to obey His words.

Many people ask: Now what is this cross of Jesus that we have got to pick up? If we obey Jesus and live according to His words then we will suffer much persecution, we will have to give up many things in life, we will have to forsake the pleasures of this world and we will have to live our lives in such a way that we obey the words of Jesus. If we go after Jesus, obey His words, repent and be baptized, and live a life that is pleasing to Him, then we will be changed into His likeness. We will become

like Him, but if we want to be like the world, like the newest trends, and go after the things of the world, we will be distracted and we will not follow nor obey Jesus, we will end up in hell.

Many people have been deceived by the false gospel that is preached in this world, a gospel of tolerance, a gospel that we cannot stop sinning. We have to make up our minds if we want eternal life. We have to go after Jesus with all our power. It will not be easy. If we live according to the words of Jesus, we will suffer persecution, we will suffer rejection, we will have to deprive ourselves of earthly pleasures. We cannot go after the pleasures of the world and expect to be part of the kingdom of God. The sinful pleasures of this world lead to death and we have to stay away from those. We have to reserve ourselves for Jesus and live for Him. Jesus promised that if we obey His words, if we live according to His words then He will reveal Himself to us. He will come and dwell in us. He will give His Spirit in us. He will speak to us. He will guide us, He will teach us. If we do not have the Spirit of Christ in us, Jesus with us, and us with Him, then we do not belong to Him and our faith is in vain.

We can only be pleasing to Jesus if we obey Him, and we need to have His Spirit guiding us, teaching us. We need to obey His Spirit. He will tell us how to live, where to live, what to do, but we have to ask. We have to go after Him, but first we have to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ; we have to commit to live according to His ways, to submit ourselves to Him, repent and be baptized, turn away from sin and earthly desires, and desire earnestly to go after Jesus. Then He will reveal Himself to you, but if we turn away from Jesus, if we allow ourselves to get distracted, then we will go away from Jesus and we will not enter His kingdom.

Only those who endure with Jesus until the very end, stay with Him, only they will enter into the kingdom of heaven. The way of the cross, the way of following Jesus, is not easy, it is difficult. Very few will follow that way. It is a way of persecution, rejection of pain and suffering. It is a way of deprivation. It is not an easy way, but it is the only way to enter into the kingdom of God, and we have to stay with Jesus, to stay on that way because without Jesus we can do nothing. As long as we follow Jesus we will endure suffering, rejection, pain, we will change to be like Him, more and more, until the very end. If we do not stay with Him we will become conformed to this world and we will end up in damnation.

Are we walking on the narrow road? Are we focused on Jesus? Do we know Him for real? Are we really serious about the kingdom of God, or have we become a victim of the false gospel that is preached in this world? Because that gospel is a gospel without Jesus Christ. It talks about believing in Jesus but it does not obey Jesus. It is a waste, it is a lie, and it will lead countless people to hell. Are we following Jesus on the narrow way every day, or have we been deceived and are we going our own way? Have we strayed like sheep? We have to stay with the Good Shepherd. Stay with Jesus until the very end to have eternal life. Go and read the words of Jesus in the Gospels. Pray and ask Jesus to make those words to come alive to you, to engrave them in your mind, in your heart, and ask Him, Holy Spirit, to remind you of those words all the time, and obey Him. Obey that prompting of the Holy Spirit when he warns you and convicts you, and calls you back onto the straight and narrow road. If we do not stay with Jesus on that road until the very end then we will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Most believers will be disappointed, disillusioned, but it will be forever too late when they find out that they were deceived and they will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Be serious with Jesus. Seek Him with all your heart. Obey His words, and He will reveal Himself to you. You will know Him for real and you will walk with Him. He will talk with you. If you obey Him and stay with Him, He will lead you and guide you until the very end. He will give you eternal life. Jesus Christ is the only way. Follow him until the very end.

May Jesus bless you.
