The world is full of imaginary Christians, people who believe in the Bible. They imagine that they are Christians but they are not followers of Jesus Christ. They are not DISCIPLES of Jesus Christ. They do not know Him. They read the Bible. They repeat a few lines of prayer after somebody else, they say they believe in Jesus Christ. They say they are Christians, they believe they are saved but they never knew Jesus Christ. They never repented of sin. they never obeyed Him, they were never BORN AGAIN. They never changed, they never became followers of Jesus Christ but they imagine that they are Christians. They never followed Jesus Christ one day. They are SINNERS. They never gave up anything for Jesus. They live for themselves but they imagine that they are going to heaven. They are deceiving themselves. They are in for a rude awakening, a very bad surprise. The day that they die they will stand before Jesus and He will say to them:”Go away from Me, I never knew you, you workers of unrighteousness.” They imagined that they were saved. They imagined that they were Christians.
They went to church, they read the Bible, they went to conferences and read the books of “inspired” preachers, but they never knew Jesus Christ. They are imaginary Christians.
The majority of professing Christians imagine that they are followers of Jesus Christ. They do not know Him. They have no relationship with Him. His sheep HEAR His VOICE. They LISTEN to Him. They FOLLOW Him. They Do as He commands. These imaginary Christians just read the Bible and quote you verses. They go to church and they go to worship. They belong to a church but they do not belong to Jesus Christ. They are not born again. They are SINNERS.
If you are a BORN AGAIN child of God then you have turned your back to the world and to yourself and you follow after Jesus Christ. You sin no more. You do the will of God. You will be persecuted. You will be hated. You will go where Jesus sends you, not where you think. You will not live by IMAGINATION, you will walk by the truth because you will know Him for real. You will give up everything and do what He tells you to do. You will sacrifice yourself and your life because you know the King, because you have seen Him Kingdom and you know Him for real.
Are you an imaginary Christian, or do you know Jesus Christ? Are you a DISCIPLE of Jesus Christ? Are you born again of the Spirit of God and have you turned away from your own ways? Have you received the baptism in the Holy Spirit and are you lead by the Spirit of God? Do you do the will of God or do you run after your imagination?
Dear friend, have you met Jesus Christ for real? Do you truly follow and obey Him? Or are you playing religion, church, Bible games, debates, your own opinion? If you follow Jesus Christ all that matters is to HEAR His VOICE and to DO His will. If you do not hear His voice and if you do not go after Him every day, then you are not one of His sheep. Then you are just an imaginary deluded believer and you will end up in hell.
Wake up and seek Jesus Christ. Wake up before it is too late. Seek Jesus Christ with all your heart and you will find Him. Follow Him and obey Him until the end or you will perish.
May Jesus bless you.
