Most professing Christians are living a lie, they are not following Jesus. They are not in the Light, they are in darkness. They believe in Jesus but they refuse to come to Him and walk with Him. They refuse to obey Him. They refuse to repent, stop sinning and be baptized in water. They refuse to live holy. They refuse to seek His will and do it, but they believe they have salvation.
They believe lies because they do not seek the truth, they seek their own ways. They think that they have salvation because they are religious. They are church goers. They pay their tithes and do charities. They study the Bible. Many are preachers and church leaders. They cast out demons and perform miracles in the Name of Jesus, but they love the world and the things of the world. They love money, status and the acceptance and approval of people. They love their comforts entertainment, worldly pleasures, lust of the flesh and worldly securities. They are more lovers of pleasure than lovers of God. They are living in sin. They are only fooling themselves because they are heading to destruction. They are separated from God by sin and all their idols. They listen to the false prophets.
Jesus said:“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.16“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18“A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19“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.’Matthew 7:15-23.
Jesus Christ alone is the WAY, the LIFE and the TRUTH. Only those who OBEY and FOLLOW Him, will walk in TRUTH. Jesus gives His Holy Spirit in and with those who seek Him and OBEY Him, repent and are baptized in water. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth, He will guide them into all truth IF they listen to and obey Him.
Have you repented and been baptized in water? Have you received the Holy Spirit? Are you LISTENING to Him and walking in TRUTH, or are you living a lie?
