Most Christian believers do not seem to know it but you need to know Jesus, and He needs to know you or else you will not get into heaven. Believing in Jesus and knowing about Him is not enough. Jesus warned those who saw Him and heard Him speaking, many who followed Him around and believed in Him. He said:” 21“Not everyone who 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.’ Matthew 7:21-23.says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter
Jesus was not speaking to unbelievers. He was speaking to people who prophesied in His name, who cast out demons and who performed miracles. Many believers today, preachers, evangelists, so called men of God, do not know Jesus, they are sinners, they practice lawlessness.
We only get to know Jesus when we obey His commands, repent and are baptized, sin no more and live holy. To those who obey Jesus, He discloses Himself, they get to know Him and He knows them. Jesus said: “He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.” John 14:21.
Jesus said:”“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;”John 10:27.
Most professing Christians have no interest in Jesus. They have no desire to know Him. Nobody told them that they have to know Jesus and He has to know them. He has to be pleased with them or else they will not enter His kingdom.
It is time to get to know Jesus, to know His voice and to follow Him. Dear friend, are you one of His sheep? Do you hear His voice and follow Him? Do you know Jesus and does He know you?
May Jesus bless you.
