Watch out for the Pharisees

 

 

 

Finding salvation through Jesus Christ is easy, it is for children. He said unless we come to Him like a child we cannot come to Jesus Christ, we must come just as we are, it’s not difficult, there is no recipe. Whoever shall call on the Name of the Lord shall be saved. Whoever will call on Jesus Christ shall be saved.

 

A lot of people are prevented to come to Jesus Christ by modern day scribes and Pharisees, people who profess to know the Bible profess to know God, but they have no knowledge of God, maybe they have a knowledge of scripture but no knowledge of Jesus Christ. They are preventing people who are seeking Jesus to come to Him through their knowledge of scripture, through their own interpretation. They make it difficult to come to Jesus. People that want to come just give up hope because it becomes so difficult that they don’t know how to come to Jesus.

 

Jesus made us, He put inside of us a conscience which is His Spirit, which speaks to us. If we do anything wrong our conscience speaks to us. The only way to get our conscience clean is by coming to Jesus. He who made the conscience He is the only one who, through the Blood of Jesus Christ, can cleanse us who can forgive us and there is no pre-condition. There was only one pre-condition and that was the Cross of Calvary where Jesus Christ died. He says: Come to Me all ye who are weary and I shall give you rest. He says: Follow Me. He didn’t give other pre conditions. He didn’t tell people to go and read a Book to go to Bible studies to classes. He said: Come here follow Me. How would we know what is right? The law of Christ is written in our hearts. He said in Hebrews 8:10 "FOR THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL. AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR MINDS, AND I WILL WRITE THEM ON THEIR HEARTS. AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. 11"AND THEY SHALL NOT TEACH EVERYONE HIS FELLOW CITIZEN, AND VERYONE HIS BROTHER, SAYING, ‘KNOW THE LORD,’ FOR ALL WILL KNOW ME, FROM THE LEAST TO THE GREATEST OF THEM.”

 

You don’t need to be able to read and write to know Jesus Christ, you can accept Him into your live and His Spirit will come and live in your Spirit and His Spirit will guide you into all truth. That is the work of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not limited by our knowledge or our capability to read and write. He speaks to us, He can speak any language and He speaks to us clearly. He will guide us and lead us into all truth. He will tell us everything that we need to know to satisfy Jesus Christ, to bring us to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. We don’t need to be educated, we don’t need to go to a school to a seminary to be taught by people with carnal knowledge. We need Jesus Christ. His Spirit will guide us into all truth. He says in Hebrews 8:11-12 “AND THEY SHALL NOT TEACH EVERYONE HIS FELLOW CITIZEN, AND EVERYONE HIS OTHER, SAYING, ‘KNOW THE LORD,’ FOR ALL WILL KNOW ME, FROM THE LEAST TO THE GREATEST OF THEM. 12 "FOR I WILL BE MERCIFUL TO THEIR INIQUITIES, AND I WILL REMEMBER THEIR SINS NO MORE."

 

Jesus Christ is calling us to a relationship. People are making it difficult to come to Jesus Christ because they want to keep other people in bondage. They want to impress people with their knowledge of scripture and that way they are keeping, they are preventing people from coming to Jesus. Don’t let anything prevent you from coming to Jesus Christ. Go on your knees; seek Him with all your heart. Just say Lord Jesus I need you. Come to Him don’t let anything stop you don’t let any scribe or Pharisee tell you that Jesus won’t accept you, that you have done one or other sin which are to horrible that you cannot come to Him.

 

Jesus said come to Me as you are. All who are weary come to Me and I will give you rest. The Pharisees and the lawyers did this, they kept people from coming to Jesus Christ and they are doing exactly the same today. Jesus said in Luke 11:52 "Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge; you yourselves did not enter, and you hindered those who were entering." Why? Because they tell people they need some special knowledge about scripture before they can come to God and that is not true. Those who believed in Jesus Christ after He had healed them, they Pharisees told them they are uneducated and they banned them from their synagogue. But they themselves the Pharisees did not enter into the kingdom of God exactly the same today. There are Pharisees that are telling people that they cannot come to God because they don’t have the superior knowledge that they profess to have. Those people don’t know Jesus Christ. You and me we need to know Jesus Christ, my friend, and nothing else. We need to come to the cross on our knees and just say: Lord help me. That is how we come to Jesus. Jesus spoke to them in Matthew 23:14 He said  “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive greater condemnation.] “ They take people captive with all kinds of teachings. They take people captive for money they make them pay money for teachings for memberships. You don’t need a membership my friend, I don’t need a membership, I need Jesus Christ and you need Jesus Christ. We need to satisfy Jesus Christ, nothing else. The scribes and the Pharisees twisted the law to suit themselves, they made their own rules to take priority over the Law of Moses. Everything that you and me need to know to satisfy Jesus Christ and to be righteous according to His will to obey His commands, He will tell us through His Holy Spirit. He said that: The Spirit of truth that will come from the Father will remind you of all the things that I have said and He will reveal to you things to come. Jesus Christ will reveal to you and to me what we need to know. Your conscience will speak to you my conscience will speak to me because the Law of God is written in our hearts the moment that we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts. His Holy Spirit comes and lives inside of us, your conscience and mine will tell us what is right and what is wrong. The Spirit of the living God inside of us will testify and tell us. Therefore it will be true what Jesus said about the Pharisees for He said: I say to you unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and the Pharisees you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. Why? The scribes and the Pharisees were stuck to their laws and their interpretations of the scripture exactly the same as the modern day scribes and Pharisees. They tie heavy burdens around people and they themselves would not lift a finger to pick it up. Yet they prevent people from going into the kingdom of heaven, because they prevent them from worshipping and from following and from obeying Jesus Christ, they prevent them from being led and guided by the Holy Spirit of God.

 They take knowledge and their own interpretation of the Bible as superior and they prevent people from coming to Jesus because they bind these things around their necks. They make it impossible to come into the kingdom of God. Any one who tells you that it is difficult to understand, he is telling you not the truth, he is a liar. It is easy, Why? Because the law of God is written in your heart and in mine. The kingdom of God is for children, it is not for learned people. It is those who are educated and learned who shut the kingdom of God to those who want to come to Jesus just as they are. You don’t need to be clever you don’t need to be educated, you just need to come on your knees and say Lord Jesus please help me and He will come to you quickly. He made you and He made me. He gave us the capability and the brain that He gave us. He told nobody to go and get educated first and then come and follow Me. He called ordinary people. He called disciples, He called fisherman, He called people of the land people with no education. There were some people that were educated but they denied their education and they follow Jesus Christ. Paul did not allow that all his education as a Pharisee to get in the way of the revelation of Jesus Christ he shunned that. He came to Jesus Christ like a child, that is the way we need to come and we will be saved. Don’t get buried under paperwork don’t get buried under teachings get on your knees and seek Jesus Christ with your whole heart, and you will find Him. Jesus is not difficult to find, the cross is not difficult. If we seek Him we will find Him we just say: Jesus come to me please Lord I need you and He will.
