Countless foolish Christian believers have been deceived by the FAITH ALONE deceptive teaching. We cannot be saved by faith alone. That is a lie that is being preached and believed by many people and they are going to hell because they are believing lies. We cannot be saved by believing in Jesus Christ alone. We have to put action to our faith. Faith without works is dead. Faith without works cannot save us.
If we believe in Jesus Christ, we have to obey Him,we have to do what He commanded. Salvation is conditional. If we believe in Jesus Christ then we must do what He tells us to do. Faith always goes accompanied by works. When Peter walked on the water, Jesus commanded him to get out of the boat and walk to Him. If Peter never got out of that boat and did not take the first step he would never have walked on water. Peter said to the lame man:”In the name of Jesus Christ, get up and walk!” If that lame man did not get up, he would never have walked. Faith without works is dead. We need to obey Jesus Christ and follow Him to have eternal life.
Jesus gives eternal life to those who obey Him, who repent and are baptized in water, and who go after Him, who follow Him all the way. He gives His Holy Spirit in those that repent and are baptized and He guides them by the Holy Spirit. The reason why most believers do not follow Jesus and they cannot hear His voice is because they never obeyed Him from the beginning. They never repented, where ever baptized in water, never received the baptism in the Holy Spirit and they do not know His voice. They are not following Him, and therefore they do not have the hope of salvation because they don’t know Jesus.
We only have the hope of salvation if we obey Jesus Christ and keep on obeying Him until the very end. We need to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, the words that He commanded; repent and be baptized, live in righteousness and holiness according to His words, turn away from sin, turn to Jesus, seek His guidance, seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Go after Jesus every day and obey Him, when he speaks to you. If we do not obey Jesus Christ we will not have salvation. Many Christian believers, the world over, are deceived and they believe that they have salvation, that they will go to heaven if they die, just because they confess that they believe in Jesus Christ, but they do not know Him. They do not obey Him, they have no relationship with Him. They are deceived and they will perish. Most Christian believers are on their way to hell. If we do not obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, get to know Jesus, follow and obey Him every day until the very end, we have no hope of salvation. There is only one way to have eternal life and that is to follow and obey Jesus Christ, to obey Him and to serve Him, to become part of His kingdom and to serve Him as Lord and Master. Faith alone without following Jesus will not save you.
Do not be deceived, like so many have been deceived, and so many are walking in deception. They say they are saved but they are following satan. They are of the world, they are not of the kingdom of God. Have you been saved of your sin? Have you turned away from your fruitless and senseless existence without Jesus Christ? Have you repented and been baptized? Have you received the baptism in the Holy Spirit and are you following Jesus Christ under the guidance of His Holy Spirit? Do you truly have the hope of salvation?
May Jesus bless you.
