LIVING A DREAM The Christian Reality Show

Many Christians are living a dream, fueled by the worldly churches and their ungodly preachers. Preachers are no longer men of God but rather men of the church and men of the world. They are entertainers and inspirational speakers that tickle the ears of the believers, to make them laugh and be happy in their delusion, the dream world that they are living in. Church has become a reality show to follow after the world that does not want to face reality but rather be watching reality TV.

Many Christians believe they are saved but they are no different from those who do not believe. They are delusional. Salvation is not about what you believe, it is about what you have become and what you are doing as outcome of your faith. If you are a Christian then you have become a child of God and a follower of Jesus Christ.

Following Jesus is not WATCHING a show, but BEING the show. The model of the show is Jesus. Those who follow Him are like Him. Jesus gives eternal life to those who FOLLOW Him, His sheep. Jesus said:”My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal life to them,”John 10:27,28. If you do not FOLLOW Jesus you will not have eternal life. If you do not HEAR His voice, then you are not His sheep. Watching or being part of the church reality show will not save you. You have to follow and obey Jesus to have eternal life.

You do not follow Jesus by going to church. You have to obey Him, repent, turn from sin, stop sinning, be baptized in water for the forgiveness of your sin. Then seek Jesus with all your heart. He will give His Holy Spirit in you, to teach and guide you. You will be born again, a child of God, who hears His voice and can follow Him. You will become one of His sheep. Listen to Him, follow and obey Him every day, until the end and He will give you eternal life, IF you follow Him until the end. Obey and live according to the commands and teachings of Jesus as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Do you go to church to watch a reality show, or ARE you the reality show? Can the world see Jesus in you? Are you following after men, celebrities, preachers and inspirational speakers, or are you following Jesus and listening to Him? Are you one of His sheep and do you follow Him?

May Jesus bless you.

GOD DOES NOT FORGIVE THOSE WHO DO NOT STOP SINNING

God does not wish for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. He told Ezekiel to give this message to Israel:””Say to them, ‘As I live!’ declares the Lord GOD, ‘I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! Why then will you die, O house of Israel?’ Ezekiel 33:11. The soul that sins will die.

 “For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27but a terrifying expectation of judgment and THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILL CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES. “Hebrews 10:26,27.

It is of no use to ask Jesus forgiveness for your sins if you do not stop sinning. You will not have forgiveness because you have not turned from sin. Your confession is a lie, you are not serious. You cannot fool God. You will end up in hell.

It is senseless to be baptized in water for the forgiveness of your sin if you have not repented, turned from sin and stopped sinning. You are wasting your time being religious, going to church, reading the Bible, even praying. God will not hear nor answer your prayer.

Without holiness, no man shall see God.

Repent, turn from sin, stop sinning, be baptized in water for the forgiveness of your sin, then be holy, sin no more, or else you cannot follow Jesus and have eternal life.

May Jesus bless you.

WHAT IT MEANS TO ACCEPT JESUS

You often hear preachers say that you have to accept Jesus Christ and believe in Him to have salvation. However many people do not understand what it means to accept or receive Jesus..

We read in John 1:9-13 speaking about Jesus:“ 9There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. 10He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. 12But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, 13who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.”

Jesus came for the lost children of Israel, to save them from their sins, and even though they were expecting their Messiah they did not recognize Him, nor accept Him. They had Him crucified and therefor salvation was extended to ALL who believe in Jesus and accept Him.

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. “

When reading these verses as published in the English language, in the many different versions of the Bible that are available today, readers are led to believe that you only need to believe in Jesus and confess to accept or receive Him to have eternal life. That is why many falsely proclaim that salvation is a free gift from God that you just have to be willing to accept, even though you don’t want it. The true meaning of those words, to accept and receive Jesus are much deeper and more compelling, than that presented in modern Bible versions. The New Testament books of the the Bible were originally written in Greek because Greek was the universally accepted language for communication and writing around the Mediterranean at that time. The meaning of many scriptures were changed by the translators and Bible publishers, and so the true meaning of many scriptures were perverted or even lost, when the different Bible versions were written. Many phrases in the King James Version do not reflect the message presented in the original Greek writings. The same happened in the case of the two scriptures that I have just read. Today, with the internet it is possible for any person to investigate the true meaning of the scriptures even though they have no knowledge of the Greek language. Biblehub.com presents the original meaning of every word in the Bible if you want to research it.

John 1:12”But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God,” The true meaning is: As many as have taken hold of Him, He gave the privilege or capacity that would enable them to become children of God,

“even to those who believe in His name, “ those who truly believed that He is the Light of the world, God in the flesh.

“13who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” They would become born again, by the Spirit of God, to be children of God.”

Accepting and receiving Jesus is not passive faith in Him, but rather requires that we embrace and lay hold of Him, go after Him and submit ourselves to Him and His lordship.

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. “ The phase “believes in Him” has a much deeper meaning than that conveyed by the popular English translation. It should rather be “who is committed to Him.”

The gospel of Jesus Christ requires commitment, obedience and dedication to Jesus, to obey and follow Him until the end. It is not the shallow message of easy believerism and acceptance of a free gift of salvation that is preached in the world today.

Most believers do not know and understand who Jesus really is and what He requires of those who believe in Him and hope to have eternal life. The message of Jesus Christ has been diluted and made powerless through inadequate Bible translations and a false gospel being preached by people who do not know Jesus, neither do they have the Holy Spirit, so that they would be enlightened by the truth.

The apostle Paul wrote in Colossians, who Jesus really is and described His mighty power.

Colossians 1:15 ”He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. 19For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, 20and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.

      21And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, 22yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach— 23if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister.”

The CONDITION for salvation ,Paul reiterates in verse 23”if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister.”

The hope of eternal life hangs on accepting Jesus Christ, embracing Him as Lord, following and obeying His words, His gospel, until the end. There is only One Savior, and one gospel that can save and that is the words of Jesus Christ as also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Accept Him and obey His words and you will live. Repent and be baptized. Seek Him with all your heart and He will give His Holy Spirit in you to teach and guide you. If you reject Jesus and His words you have no hope of eternal life, you will perish,

Accept Jesus today and stay with Him until the end.

May Jesus bless you.

WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO DO

I have been a serious Christian for many  years and I believed that I was saved and living a good Christian life but on July 28, 1998 I had  a heart attack and I died. I left my body and I was on my way to Hell. I knew it was final and I was not coming back. 
I was not living in sin. I was baptized in water, baptized in the Holy Spirit,  speaking in tongues. To my mind and my understanding I was doing right, living a good Christian life, but there I was, I had left my body, I was floating on my back, being drawn down a dark black hole, on my way to hell. I pleaded with Jesus to let me come back, but all to no avail. Eventually I said:”Lord,  let me please go back and  warn the world that Jesus is alive and hell is real.” 
Then Jesus allowed me to come back. My full testimony is on my Youtube channel and on my website. 
Many people have asked me what I was neglecting and what I was doing wrong, that caused me to be going to hell. I was going by my own understanding of the Bible and I was not bearing fruit for the kingdom of God.  After that Jesus taught me that I have to walk with Him and be led by the Holy Spirit, to be able to bear fruit.  Jesus said that every branch in Him that does not bear fruit will get cut off and burned. I was a branch and I was in Christ, born again but I was not bearing fruit because I followed my own mind and was not led by the Holy Spirit, and so I was being cut off.

We read in Micah 6:8 “He has told you, O man, what is good; 
And what does the LORD require of you 
But to do justice, to love kindness, 
And to walk humbly with your God?” 
We read the scriptures and we often do not know how to practically apply them, how to walk with God. 
In the first place we have to TURN TO GOD, seek His way, not our way. God’s way is Jesus Christ,  OBEYING, LISTENING TO, AND FOLLOWING Him. The only way to have eternal life is to believe in Jesus and therefore to follow Him. How do we obey Jesus in the first place? 
Repent, turn from sin, stop sinning altogether, sin no more, do not sin. “Do justice,  love kindness.”  Repent, turn from following your own desires, lusts and ambitions. Make it your ambition to be holy and pleasing to God. Make it your ambition to do the will of God and live a life that is pleasing to Him. Be baptized in water for the forgiveness of your sin as Jesus commanded. Live your life in obedience to the teachings and commands of Jesus,  as they were also recorded in Matthew,  Mark,  Luke  and John. If you do not take these first steps and obey the teachings and commandments of Jesus,  you cannot follow Jesus, you cannot walk with Him and you do not have the hope of eternal life. 
Going to church, reading the Bible, paying tithes, fellowship with other Christians, preaching, casting out demons, speaking in tongues, building churches,  doing religious things,  all of those things that many Christians do ARE ALL IN VAIN if you do not obey His words, repent and be baptized and then FOLLOW Him. 
I want to remind you that Jesus said: 21“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. Jesus was talking to believers. Unbelievers do not prophesy in the name of Jesus, neither do they cast out demons or perform miracles. Jesus was saying that those who PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS are not known by Him.  
Many Christians today are living in sin. They say they are under grace, not under law, but they PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS. Guess what? Jesus will say to them: ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’  Without holiness no man shall see God. Those Christians are not walking with God, they are following satan, many of them preachers and respected pastors with huge ministries and churches, who speak in tongues,  prophesy,  cast out demons, heal the sick and perform miracles in the name of Jesus. They are doing all those things but they are not living holy, therefor they have no communion with Jesus. Their fruit is bad because they are living in sin and not bringing others to repentance and holiness.

The foundation of our walk with Jesus is OBEDIENCE to His Teachings and commandments and HOLINESS. Without those we will not progress in our walk with Him. In short: Repent and be baptized,  and be holy. Set yourself aside for Jesus,  dedicate your life to Him, seek Him in prayer, and He will DISCLOSE Himself to you. Jesus said:” “He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”John 14:21. If we demonstrate to Jesus our love for Him through our obedience to His commandments, He will reveal Himself to us. He will come and dwell in us. He will give His Holy Spirit in us to be with us  and GUIDE us, so that we can FOLLOW Him and WALK WITH HIM.  

You cannot follow Jesus in “blind faith” like so many claim to do.  “Faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ” Romans 10:17. You need to HEAR from Jesus to be able to FOLLOW Him and DO what He requires of you. Jesus said: “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;”John 10:27. The apostle Paul wrote in Romans 8:14 “For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” You have to be one of His sheep,  who HEAR His VOICE,  LISTEN and FOLLOW Him.  He speaks through His Spirit, the Holy Spirit,  that He gives  in those who OBEY Him. 

You have to go after Jesus to have eternal life. You have to follow Him. You have to seek and obey His guidance. You have to seek His approval.  

Why was I on my way to hell even though, by my understanding and by accepted Christian standards I was a good Christian? I was still the Boss of my life. I lived to please ME. I had to dedicate my life to Jesus, repent from my plans, ambitions and desires and become a SHEEP,  a disciple who follows Him, hears from Him and does what He wants me to do. I had to become a servant of the kingdom of God and serve the Lord, Jesus Christ. 

I had to repent, turn from my opinion, insight and understanding and learn from Jesus what He wanted me to understand. The Bible took on new meaning for me. I was reading it with fresh eyes and a new mind. My mind had to be renewed, reformatted, by listening to Jesus, following the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Years of indoctrination from listening to other “Christians” had to be wiped off and retaught, replaced with TRUTH. What I have learned is not to trust in my own understanding or what I previously learned or experienced, but to LISTEN  to the Master’s VOICE,  trust, obey and follow Him. Never ASSUME. Always ask and follow His guidance. Do not trust in your own understanding,  neither ask the opinion of others, even if they are also disciples of Jesus. Follow and obey Jesus even if you are the only one that goes in the direction that He sends you. Jesus  will guide you, but you have to FOLLOW  and keep following Him until the end. 

Without faith it is impossible to please  God. You cannot follow Jesus if you do  not absolutely trust Him. You only get to truly know Him if you WALK WITH HIM. 

Do you understand  what I am telling you? Are you ready to WALK WITH JESUS and do what God requires of you, dear friend.  It is a narrow  lonely road and only few are on it, but it is the only road that leads to eternal life. 

May Jesus bless you.

WEALTHY PREACHERS AND CELEBRITY SPEAKERS  Blessed by God or wolves in sheep’s clothing?

It is just quite amazing how wealthy preachers and celebrity speakers always have a big following and how they become even more wealthy. Why is that? Is it because God is blessing them or are they making money from speakers fees, like the politicians? Their followers buy their books, videos, tapes and paraphernalia. They  pay top dollar  for a good  seat at their shows and seminars. They travel far and wide to listen to them, to be touched by them. They pay large amounts of money to stand in line to meet them, be baptized by them, or to have them lay hands on them.
Many believe that they will reap godly wealth if they sow into the pockets of these blessed speakers, and so the speakers increase in wealth and stature, they become even richer and more famous.
People like to listen to and associate with these rich and famous preachers and speakers, who often build mega churches and draw a huge following. These great names are the main attraction. They get paid large amounts of money to appear and speak in churches and at conferences. They are in demand, busy, always on the move. They keep on writing more and publishing more books, and so they keep on increasing their personal wealth and fame.
However, here is the problem. Jesus said:”If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.”Matthew 16:24. He said to the rich young ruler:”Go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” Matthew 19:21. The disciples of Jesus were none of them rich. They gave up everything to follow Jesus. 
Jesus warned that “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Matthew 19:24.
People like to run after rich and famous people, celebrities, but they do not like to follow Jesus or His servants because His followers do not treasure or accumulate riches.

Here is another thing . Jesus said to His disciples:”You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”Mark 13:13. Jesus never said His followers will be admired and that they will become rich and famous.

What are these wealthy preachers and celebrity speakers? Are they followers of Jesus? Are they His disciples? Jesus said:”15“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.16“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18“A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20“So then, you will know them by their fruits.

      21“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 7:15-23.

Do these preachers teach you to deny yourself, stop sinning, be holy, be righteous, be baptized in water, be filled with the Holy Spirit, to follow and obey Jesus? Or do they teach you about grace, money, blessings and prosperity? Do they bring you to repentance and obedience to Jesus or do they make you feel, blessed, loved, deserving and favored by God? Do they make you feel good about yourself and justified in your sin?

The words of Jesus are the words of eternal life but they are harsh on unrepentant sinners and hypocrites. At one stage “many of His disciples withdrew and were not walking with Him anymore. 67So Jesus said to the twelve, “You do not want to go away also, do you?” 68Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.” John 6:66.

Are you listening to these false prophets? Do you watch their videos on Youtube and see they have hundreds of thousands of views? Do you turn on the TV and watch their programs? Do you admire their glamour and riches, their wealth and prosperity? Are you impressed by their sayings? Do you support them, buy their books and send them money, so that they can get even more rich and famous and take more souls to hell with them?

Who do you listen to, dear friend? Do you listen to Jesus and follow Him on the lonely narrow road, the road less traveled? Are you one of His sheep, do you know His voice, or do you listen to and follow after the false prophets?

May Jesus bless you.

YOU NEED JESUS NOT RELIGION – My Testimony

Jesus Christ is ALIVE. He SPEAKS and His sheep HEAR His VOICE. I am one of His sheep, He speaks to me, He guides me, I hold His hand and I follow Him. Like so many believers I was ignorant. I did not know Jesus even though I believed in Him, but Jesus disclosed Himself to me. He spoke to me.

I was religious and I was deceived. Many years ago I first believed in Jesus. I repented and was baptized. Then for years I was seeking the baptism in the Holy Spirit, but even though others that I knew received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, with evidence of speaking in tongues, I did not receive it. I grew despondent and I was disheartened, and then I gave up. I decided to live holy, in obedience to Jesus and then I received the baptism in the Holy Spirit. While praying, one day, I felt the joy of Jesus coming over me and then I started speaking in a heavenly tongue. It was wonderful. I was filled with enthusiasm and eagerness to witness for Jesus.

I was 17 years old. I started street preaching and praying for the sick. Many were healed. I was going around preaching and witnessing for Jesus. I left the church because they wanted me to be part of their programs. I then got involved with a group that were casting out demons and doing deliverance. They were also speaking personal prophecies. What I did not realize is that I was not focused on Jesus any more. I had become part of a group, a ministry, led by men. They were manipulating group members through prophecy. This group was also preaching for men to stay single and not marry. For others they were prophesying to marry specific members of the group. One day they prophesied something over me that infuriated me. I was left with the belief that in order to be pleasing to God I should be celibate, and that did not appeal to me. I turned away from the group but I was also no longer with Jesus. I was foolishly, mad at God also, and I went my own way. I was spiritually destroyed. At that stage I was also unemployed because I had left my job to be full time worker, or missionary in this group.

I found a job and started building my life, working hard but I allowed sin to creep in. Before long I was living a godless life. I got married and we had two children. I was doing good in my work, making good money, bought a house, climbing the corporate ladder, but then there was a car accident. My wife was alone in the car. After lying in hospital in a coma for three weeks, she passed away, leaving me, a widower with two little boys, the youngest 9 months old.

Prior to the accident she had a premonition. She would often say to me that if she dies I must marry again, and I would say to her not to talk like that. That was a very difficult time in my life, but in the back of my stubborn sinful mind I knew God was speaking to me through my wife’s death, calling me back to Him.

During that time I met wonderful lady whom I soon married. She was a godly woman though, and many fights ensued because she wanted to drag me to church. I knew the Bible well and I knew the hypocrisy of the church. One night my wife managed to drag me to a tent service and I sat there listening to the preacher with animosity and skepticism, but the Holy Spirit spoke in my heart and I realized that my case was with Jesus, not with religion or with a church.

I prayed and I said:”Lord, if You want me back, I dearly want to come back to You, but I have fallen far.” Jesus took me back. I was changed. It was the beginning of a long, hard road that did not only change my life but also impacted on many others. It is a the journey on which I am still today. I learned much and I am still learning every day.

There was one thing that I asked of the Lord and that is, I said:”Lord, I want to be ONE MAN, all the time, that You can be pleased with.” I used to be a good actor, different persons in different situations. I was man of the world at work and with my friends, another person at home and yet another person when my wife managed to drag me to church. That stopped. Jesus changed me. I am His man, all the time. As result of that I did not fit in any more. I did not fit in at work, they fired me. I did not fit in with my friends, they left me. The family though I was crazy, they rejected me. I did not fit in with church, they rejected me. That is what happens if you follow Jesus. Jesus said:”You will be hated by all men, because of Me.”

We went through much hardship, but in that time we truly got to know Jesus. We learned to trust in Jesus, not in friends or money. We often did not have money, no medical insurance, no fixed job, no securities. We learned to pray and trust the Lord. We never begged, nor slept on the streets, nor went without food. That hardship lasted for more than 3 years, then the Lord changed our fortune and it went extremely well with us, but we never forgot what it was, not to have, and we learned to depend on Jesus in the worst of circumstances. I can write books about the things we went through and some of my testimonies are on Youtube and on my website.

To practice religion is easy and convenient, because you can always generalize, apply scripture to your beliefs to your situation. You can justify many things that are wrong, you can justify your own shortcomings, but if you follow Jesus there is no place to hide. He takes you on the narrow road, the often impossible road and you have to decide all the way along the road, whether you will stay with Jesus or whether you will follow your own way. The way that Jesus shows you often does not make human sense. It is often humbling, humiliating, daring, uncertain and downright scary but if you are not willing to follow Jesus by faith and do what He tells you to do, you go into darkness. Your faith will be tested. Do you really trust Jesus? Do you really love Him? Will you go with Him all the way? He gives you the choice, all along the way. You can quit at any time, but then you are on your own, in darkness, heading for destruction. You can always ask Him for confirmation of what He told you to do, or what you believe you should do. He will answer you but you have to trust Him. If you doubt Him and start asking the opinions of other people, you are lost.

Jesus has through the years spoken to me many times and in many ways. He has spoken to me in a voice, in my spirit. You look around and wonder whether other people also heard Him. At other times softly, in a dream, in a vision. He has told me things about people. He has said to me”That woman is lying.” He has given me names of places and people and sent me to them with a message, people that I did not know. Jesus has corrected me, taught me, warned me, given me revelation. In 1998 I died of a heart attack and even though I was seriously following Jesus, I found myself on my way to hell. I pleaded with Jesus to allow me to come back and tell the world that Jesus is alive and hell is real. I was following Jesus, but at times I was not focused. He made me understand how important it is to stay with Him every day all the way until the end. My testimony is on my website and on Youtube. Jesus has sent me half way around the world to do His will. In 2017 I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. I ended up in hospital with sepsis after botched surgery. I was in ICU unconscious for a month. I died twice. They did not expect me to survive. I was so weak I could not even comb my hair or brush my teeth. I had to learn to walk again. In that hospital I had the opportunity to testify for Jesus to many doctors, nurses and patients, people I would never have met, had I not gone through that ordeal. In that hospital Jesus spoke to me. He also spoke to my wife. He speaks to us all the time because we follow Him, we live for Him.

You cannot be fruitful for the kingdom of God is you do not follow Jesus, if you are not led by the Holy Spirit. You cannot serve Jesus by being religious, going to church and following other people. My wife and I are normal people, we have children and grand children. We have been married 35 years, but we together follow Jesus. That is what He requires of us and of everyone who wants to be fruitful in Jesus.

We share our testimonies and that which Jesus teaches us and gives to us to share with others, hoping to encourage them to also become disciples of Jesus and follow Him, so that they can have eternal life.

Jesus has a specific mission and task for everyone who believes in Him and follows Him and we can only achieve His will, if we follow Him and are led by Him. We have to follow Jesus, to have eternal life, not just believe in Him. How can we serve Him, know Him and be part of His kingdom if we do not listen to Him and do what He tells us to do? We have to know and hear from Jesus for ourselves, not from other people and through others. Jesus might send someone to us with a message, but that message will always bring us back to the right relationship with Jesus so that we can hear from Him and follow Him.

My life has made many turns and taken unexpected directions along unplanned paths but in all of it Jesus was there, teaching and guiding and giving understanding. He has taught me not to trust in people, neither to follow them, only Him, and so should you, dear friend.

Seek Jesus and you will find Him. Obey His commands, repent and be baptized. Turn from sin and from following your own ways. Seek Jesus with all your heart and He will give His Holy Spirit in you to guide you all the way until the end. Without Jesus, we can do nothing.

May Jesus bless you.

MOST CHRISTIANS DO NOT BELIEVE JESUS IS LORD to their own downfall

Most Christians do not really believe that Jesus is Lord, and that is why they do not fear Him, nor follow and obey Him. They just believe in Him for salvation. They are deceived because they do not read the Bible for themselves and they do not know Jesus.

If you read the words of Jesus, in the Bible, specifically in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, you will learn that most Christians do not know nor believe the truth. They listen to preachers and other deceived believers, who themselves do not know nor follow Jesus.

Churches have fabricated a false gospel by using selected scriptures from the Bible. The general message is that you should just believe in Jesus and in the cross of Jesus to have eternal life. This false and lethal message, and many variations of it, is being preached and taught in many Bible schools and because people trust the so-called experts and Bible scholars, they believe their lies and follow after them.

The crucial part of the gospel of Jesus Christ is understanding WHO He is and therefor believing in Him and obeying Him. Faith without action, obedience to Jesus, will not save anybody. Believing in the cross of Jesus, the cross that He bore and died on, cannot save you. Jesus Christ is the “Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end”(Revelation 21:6). He is the final Judge of all men, and He alone will decide who will have eternal life and who will go into eternal damnation. Jesus is the One to FEAR. He said:”Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”Matthew 10:28.

Those who DISOBEY Jesus will end up in hell even though they believed in Him. Jesus said:” 21“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. Christians that practice sin will end up in hell.

Believing in the cross of Jesus will not save anyone. Jesus said:”If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.” Luke 9:23. YOU have to pick up YOUR cross and follow Jesus every day. Everyone who follows Jesus will bear a cross. You will suffer rejection, discrimination, hatred, persecution, slander, you might even get killed for obeying and following Jesus. That is the cross that you will have to bear if you want to follow Jesus.

Discipleship is not just a requirement for SOME. It is required for ALL who want to have eternal life.

Jesus gives eternal life to His sheep, those who HEAR His voice and FOLLOW Him, not to those who just believe in Him. Jesus said:“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.”John 10:27,28.

Who are His sheep? Who are the ones who will know Him and be known by Him? Those who OBEY Him. Jesus said:”“He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”  John 14:27.

If you really believe that Jesus is Lord, you will fear Him and obey Him. You will seek Him, listen to His voice and follow Him. You will become one of His sheep and seek His approval. Obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, repent and be baptized in water for the forgiveness of your sins. Sin no more. Live according to His words as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Seek Him with all your heart and He will disclose Himself to you. He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and give His Spirit to be in and with you to teach and guide you. He will SPEAK to you. LISTEN to Him. FOLLOW and OBEY Him, every day, until the end and He will give you eternal life.

Do you REALLY believe Jesus is Lord? Do you KNOW Him? Do you LISTEN to His VOICE and FOLLOW Him every day? Are you one of His sheep?

May Jesus bless you.
