Jesus is calling many Christians to repent of their evil ways and turn back to Him, to live holy and serve Him, but many are not hearing.
Jesus is faithful. If you once accepted Him, He will never give up on you. His calling and His gifts are irrevocable. He does not turn back on His word. Once you have accepted Him and become His, He will do His utmost to bring you back to Him, if you stray, but He will never force you to follow Him. He will not hold you back if you want to leave Him. If you persist in your evil ways and refuse to repent and follow Him, you will end up in hell with the children of disobedience.
Jesus speaks in many ways, in dreams, visions, circumstances, sickness, pain, calamity, accidents and many other ways. He speaks through His servants that He sends to warn the lost and back-slidden. It is not the will of God that any perish but that all repent of their evil ways, obey Him and have eternal life.
Nothing happens to a child of God, and to the back-slidden, without Jesus allowing it. The devil can only do to a child of God, what Jesus allows him to do. All our misfortunes, pains and calamities come with the consent of God. It is the voice of God, calling us to Him, calling us to repentance.
Many Christians are not fruitful. They are in sin and disobedience. They are not following and obeying Jesus. They are not witnessing and bringing others to Jesus. Every tree that does not bear fruit will be cut off and burned. We read the words of Jesus in Luke 13: “6And He began telling this parable: “A man had a fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any. 7“And he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground?’ 8“And he answered and said to him, ‘Let it alone, sir, for this year too, until I dig around it and put in fertilizer; 9and if it bears fruit next year, fine; but if not, cut it down.’”
Dear friend, are you bearing fruit? Can you hear Jesus calling you and warning you to repent? Do not ignore Him. Listen, obey, and your soul will live. If you don’t, you will perish.
May Jesus bless you.
