Many Christian believers have an illusion of salvation. They believe that because they believe in Jesus Christ, that when they die they will go into heaven, but these people are deluded because they neither know nor obey Jesus Christ. They do not follow Him.
Jesus Christ is the way, and the only way that we will have salvation is if we follow and obey Him, and if we endure with Him until the very end. We have to repent, turn away from following our own mind, turn away from sin and go after Jesus. We have to be born again of water and of the Spirit of God. We need to be baptized in water, filled with the Holy Spirit and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God, not those who believe that they are saved.
We have to follow and obey Jesus Christ and endure with Him until the very end. Jesus said that those who endure until the end will be saved. Nobody is finally saved yet before they come to the end of the road and they have endured with Jesus Christ until the end.
We read the words of Jesus in Luke 13:23 And someone said to Him:”Lord are there just a few who are being saved? and he said to them, “strive to enter through the narrow door for many I tell you will seek to enter and will not be able.” Not many will enter the kingdom of heaven because not many are following Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ commands us to follow Him and endure with Him until the very end to have salvation.
Are you being saved? Are you following and obeying Jesus Christ every day or are you living under salvation illusion? Do you believe you are saved but you have no relationship with Jesus Christ? Do not be deluded, because Jesus will say to many people in that day that they die:”Go away, I never knew you.” What will Jesus say to you. Does He know you? Have you and I been following Him every day until the very end? Get to know Jesus for real. Follow Him and obey Him, until the end and you will be saved.
May Jesus bless you.
