Salvation is a WALK with Jesus Christ. It is not a ticket to heaven that you get when you say a “Sinners prayer.” Most people want a ticket to heaven and then they want to join a church and then they want to be social with the other deceived believers. They never get to know Jesus Christ, neither do they follow Him.
Jesus Christ CALLED His disciples and they FOLLOWED Him, they WALKED with Him every day and He TAUGHT them and His words were recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John for us to read , to KNOW His commands and to live by those commands, but Jesus Christ did not just leave us when He ascended to heaven after He was resurrected. He sent His Holy Spirit to be with us and to guide us every step of the way, so that we can WALK WITH HIM every day until the very end.
We need to OBEY Jesus Christ, REPENT and be BAPTIZED IN WATER and then seek the BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, the Spirit of Christ, living IN and WITH us and then we have to LISTEN to Him, FOLLOW and OBEY Him every day STEP BY STEP until the very end. If we do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit we cannot do what is pleasing to God. we have to FOLLOW Jesus Christ, we have to WALK UNDER GUIDANCE of the Holy Spirit as also the disciples did after they received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Go and read Acts chapter 2. All those who believed REPENTED, were BAPTIZED IN WATER and received the BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT and they followed Jesus Christ under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Go read in the book of Acts how the apostles, Jesus’ disciples, how they WALKED and what they DID under guidance of the Holy Spirit. They did not walk with a Bible, they did not walk with each other, they were guided by the Holy Spirit. They were not guided by preachers and teachers, they were guided by the Holy Spirit because “those who are led by the Spirit of God they are the children of God” (Romans 8:14).
We have to follow Jesus Christ step by step until the very end. Saying a “sinners prayer” and then studying the bible and believing that you are saved is FALSE HOPE, it is a LIE. You have to KNOW and FOLLOW Jesus Christ until the very end. You have to OBEY Him, REPENT, be BAPTIZED IN WATER and seek the INFILLING IN THE HOLY SPIRIT and once you have received it FOLLOW the guidance of the Holy Spirit until the very end.
Many have received the Holy Spirit but they never followed Jesus. They believe they are saved but they will end up in damnation because we have to follow Jesus Christ every day , deny ourselves, pick up our cross and go after Him, follow Him and DO as He guides us,until the very end.
If we do not follow Jesus Christ, the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE, then we will not have eternal life. Are you following Jesus Christ step by step every day? Are you walking the narrow road with Him?
May Jesus bless you.
