The Christian world has been deceived about the requirements for salvation. Most believers will not make it into the kingdom of heaven. Most believers are not willing to live up to the requirements of Jesus Christ, His words as also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
We read the words of Jesus in Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. 25“For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27“For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS.”
Many claim to be saved because they believe in Jesus, but faith without works is dead. We will not be judged and rewarded by our faith, but by our DEEDS. Our deeds will show whether did really believe in Jesus, because if we believe we will OBEY Him.
Our eternal destiny will be decided by Jesus, HE WILL REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO THEIR DEEDS.
We read in Matthew 7:19 Jesus said:“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20“So then, you will know them by their fruits.
21“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’
24“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25“And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26“Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27“The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”
What will be our destiny, when we stand before Jesus? Do we OBEY the words of Jesus, the gospel of Jesus Christ? Are we acting on His words? Do we OBEY the words? Do we live according to them, because if we don’t, our house will come tumbling down. It is only those who live according to the words of Jesus, those who obey His commands, they are the only ones who will enter His kingdom. Are we working on our destiny? Are we living according to the words of Jesus Christ? Or do we just believe in Jesus for salvation?
Most people believe lies. Most believers do not obey the words of Jesus, they do not live by the words of Jesus, they do not act by the words of Jesus, and those are the ones that will hear those terrible words:”Go away from Me, I never knew you.” Those are the ones whose expectation will fail. Their destiny will be hell.
What will our destiny be? Are we working on that destiny? Will our deeds ensure that we enter the kingdom of heaven? Will we be worthy of Jesus, because He will reward every man according to their deeds. Will Jesus be pleased with our deeds?
May Jesus bless you.
