Most Christian believers have no knowledge of God. They do not know Jesus Christ and therefore they will end up in hell. Jesus warned that in the day that they die He will say to many believers:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of unrighteousness.”
It is vitally important that we know Jesus and that He knows us, because His sheep know His voice they listen to Him and they follow Him. He reveals Himself to them and He gives them eternal life, but those who are not interested in Jesus will not have life. Many believers think that they can have salvation through Bible study, and through belonging to a church, theology, religious activities. We need to know Jesus Christ, the Person Himself, to enter the kingdom of heaven.
The Kingdom of Heaven is about the King, Jesus Christ, knowing Him and Him knowing us, living in close relationship with Him and doing what is pleasing to Him. Most believers are not interested in Jesus. They only want salvation. They want an assurance of salvation. They don’t want to go into hell when they die, they want to go to heaven. Others are just religious and they want the blessings of God; they want all the good things that God can offer them, but they don’t want Jesus Christ. If we don’t have Jesus we don’t have life. If we do not seek Him we will not find Him. You do not find Jesus Christ in a church, or with Christian friends, or in Bible study, or in religion. You find Jesus when you seek Him with all your heart, when you put your mind on Him, when you pray and seek Him above all things, and He will reveal Himself to you and you will get to know Him. You get to know Jesus when you obey the gospel of Jesus Christ; when you obey His commands his words as recorded in the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. He commanded that those who wish to know Him, wish to follow Him must repent. They must turn away from sin and from going after the things of the world, after their own desires and they must go after Him. They must turn from sin, and be baptized in water. They must seek Him with all their heart and He will fill them with His Holy Spirit. He will come and dwell in them. He will reveal Himself to them and they will know Him for real.
Many only want the baptism and Holy Spirit as a token of salvation, others want the gift of the Holy Spirit, but they don’t want Jesus Christ Himself. They don’t want to know Jesus, they are not interested in Jesus or in the kingdom of God and that is why they will perish, because He will turn them away. He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you.” Do we know Jesus and does He know us? Do we have a desire for Jesus? Do we have that close relationship with Him? Are we working on that relationship, seeking Him every day, staying with Him, obeying His words, looking after our relationship with Jesus above all things? Do we love Him above everything? Do we truly know Jesus and do we desire to know Him better and more every day? If we do not have that desire and go after Jesus then we will never enter His kingdom? We must seek Jesus while we can. We must live for Him in this life or else we will not know Him, neither will we be with Him when this life ends. If we do not know Him now, He will turn us away. He will say:”Go away I never knew you.” Do you know Jesus? Do you love Him? Do you seek Him? Do you seek revelation from Jesus? If we are not serious about Jesus, we will not enter His kingdom. Seek Him while you can.
May Jesus bless you.
