Get to know Jesus

Jesus command was to make disciples of all nations. He never said make believers. People just want to be believers nowadays, they don’t want to be disciples. They only want to believe to be saved, they refuse to obey Jesus. Jesus called us to be DISCIPLES, He is coming for disciples who obey Him. Jesus had one objective and that was to do the will of the Father.

We read in Hebrews 10:9 "Then said He, Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God." Jesus calls us to do His will in His Kingdom. He calls us to be part of His Kingdom and therefore He said if anyone wants to follow Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross and follow Me. It’s not about us, it’s not about our future, it is about Jesus about obeying Him. Jesus said in John 15:10 "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love." So if I want to abide His will and His love I must keep His commandments.

Where do I learn His commandments? In the four Gospels, the Words that Jesus spoke, we will be JUDGE by them, and that is what we must OBEY. In the first place we must OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS.

We read in John 12:47-48 "If anyone HEARS MY SAYINGS and does NOT KEEP them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 "He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the WORD I SPOKE is what will JUDGE him at the last day"

If we obey Jesus’ commandments and we love Him, we stay in His love and He will reveal Himself to us. He will guide us by His Holy Spirit. He said in John 14:21 "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."  If we keep His commandments, we remain in His love and He will love us and then, then only will HE REVEAL HIMSELF to us. We also learn about Jesus from other people who KNOW JESUS but FEW people KNOW JESUS. So be careful, make sure that the person that you speak to knows Jesus, if he doesn’t know Jesus run away from him. Make sure that person has got a relationship with Jesus and knows Him and he takes you to Jesus, not to himself, or his own wisdom. It is all about Jesus, we must follow Jesus our life must center around Jesus. The only way you get to know Jesus is by SPENDING TIME WITH HIM, no other way. You cannot read about Him to get to know Him, that is impossible. You must SPEND TIME WITH JESUS. It is not enough to talk about Jesus, you don’t get to know Jesus by reading the Bible. You get to know ABOUT HIM and you get to know His commandments what He wants you to do. If you want to get to know Jesus you get on your knees and you get to know Jesus and you spend time with Him. You don’t find Him with friends. Jesus was not a socialite. He did not come to spend time with friends. He came here to do the will of His Father, He spent time with the Father. He went out at nights and He prayed, He spent time alone with the Father.

 He came to do the will of the Father and a disciple does the will of Jesus. The only way that you get to know the will of Jesus is by spending time in His presence. Not by watching videos and dvd’s and playing around on the internet, not with other people You don’t get to know Jesus speaking to other people, you get to know Jesus by speaking to Him. It is no good talking ABOUT JESUS, we must TALK TO JESUS we must LISTEN TO JESUS we must ASK HIM TO REVEAL HIMSELF TO US. The only way that I live by the Word of God is when Jesus speaks to me and I listen and I hear. You need to get your own revelation from Jesus and the only way you get that is by spending time with Him.

Not by being social, not by being with other Christians, it is by being with Jesus Christ by seeking Him. He says: seek Me and you will find Me. Spend time with Him in prayer get to know His commandments and do  His commandments and He will guide you in all truth. He will tell you which job to take, which woman to marry. A lot of young guys want to get married, my friend PRAY about it ASK Jesus to send you the right wife or husband. He’s got your address.

We must SUBMIT ourselves to God. Jesus said: seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these other things will be added unto you. Get on your knees and get to know Jesus Christ, get to seek His will. Ask: Lord what do You want in my life for Your Kingdom not for me. It is not about me it is not about what I want and Jesus will reveal Himself to you. He will tell us about heavenly things. He said to the disciples, if I tell you about earthly things you don’t believe Me how would you believe Me if I tell you about heavenly things? People are not interested in heavenly things and that is why God is not speaking to them, they are not listening. If we are interested in Jesus, He will reveal to us about heaven, about Himself. He said: Me and My Father will come and live with you and I will reveal Myself to you.

We got to stop talking about Jesus, spend less time with each other, and spend time with Jesus and then Jesus will tell you what He wants you to do and then you obey. Then you are doing the will of the Father because the Father said: This is My Beloved Son LISTEN TO HIM. Listen to Jesus and He will guide you into His truth and He will use you fruitfully if you listen to Him.

Spend time in His presence. Wake up at night and get on your knees and wait on the Lord and let the Holy Spirit speak to you. Then you will have the TRUTH, you will be guided by the Spirit and you will be pleasing to Jesus Christ Himself.

Have your mind occupied with Christ and He will guide you into all truth and you will be so busy doing what Jesus is telling you to do you won’t have time for friends. You will just be busy with Jesus Christ and that is those people who He is coming for, those people who are spending their time WITH HIM and have time for nothing BUT JESUS. Those are His disciples, that is His Bride they don’t have time for sin. They don’t have time for lust and nonsense they are tuned in to listen to what Jesus is telling them.
