Eternal life comes by LISTENING and by OBEYING the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD. If we do not have the Spirit of Christ in us and if we do not OBEY HIM, we do not have life in us. It is the Holy Spirit who guides us into all truth IF we have received Him, IF we listen and IF we obey Him.
It is written in Hebrews 10:38 “BUT MY RIGHTEOUS ONE SHALL LIVE BY FAITH; AND IF HE SHRINKS BACK, MY SOUL HAS NO PLEASURE IN HIM.” God justifies those who OBEY HIM, who do what He tells them to do. He put His Spirit in us and if we obey Him then He gives us eternal life. “It is written, that MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT FROM EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD.”Matthew 4:4 FAITH comes by the HEARING, when we HEAR the WORD OF GOD, when God speaks to us in our spirit and we obey Him, then we are justified. There is no other way to please God but to OBEY HIM and to do what He tells us to do.
In the Old Testament in 1 Kings 13 There is a story of a young prophet who was sent by God to go and warn King Jeroboam BUT there was also an old prophet who came and who told this young prophet to come and stay over with Him, AFTER GOD had told this young prophet NOT to return home with the same road NEITHER to stay over. But because this other man was also a prophet of God, he allowed himself to be PERSUADED, to stay over with the old prophet, and because of that he died. We read in 1 King 13:28 ”He went out and found his body thrown on the road with the donkey and the lion standing beside him; the lion had not eaten the body nor torn the donkey.” That was his REWARD for DISOBEYING GOD. This young prophet was killed by a lion because he rather listened to the old prophet and DISOBEYED GOD. We will LIVE if we obey the Spirit of God.
A Second World War veteran once told me that he survived the war because he listened to his conscience. He told me how quite a few times he knew inside that he was not safe where he was and he had to move, just a few feet, go and sit in a different place and then a bomb would drop right where he had been a few minutes before. He LISTENED to his CONSCIENCE and he survived. God puts His Spirit in us and we have to LISTEN and OBEY to LIVE. “Those who are LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD, they are the SONS OF GOD.” Romans 8:14.
We will only have eternal life if we LISTEN to the Spirit of God. LISTEN and your soul will live. If you have not received the Spirit of God, REPENT and invite Jesus into your life, be baptized in water and ask Him for the baptism in the Holy Spirit, ask Him for His Spirit to come and dwell inside of you and LISTEN to the Spirit of God. OBEY HIM and you will live, DISOBEY HIM and you will perish.
May Jesus bless you.
