There is only one person who can give eternal life, and that is Jesus Christ. Nobody else can save you from hell and damnation. There is only one person who can forgive your sins and make you free from the bondage of sin, and that is Jesus. Without Jesus, we can do nothing. All power and all authority, in heaven and on earth, belongs to Jesus. Without Jesus we have no hope, no future, no life. The only safe place to be, is to be with Jesus and to stay with Him all the way until the end.
Why is it then that people do not go to Jesus and do not stay with Him? There are various reasons. Many have never been told. Others did not believe. Many have been deceived and told that they only need to believe in Jesus to have eternal life. They are deceived and have a false belief and hope of eternal life. Others do not experience Jesus as real, because they never really met Him. They do not know Him.
Jesus Christ is alive and He discloses Himself to those who seek Him and obey His words. His sheep HEAR His voice, and they follow Him and He gives them eternal life, but not all believers are His sheep. It is only those who have come to know Him.
Jesus only becomes a reality in your life if you OBEY Him, His words and His commandments, as they were also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Those who disobey Him will not get to know Him. The gospel of Jesus Christ is about REPENTANCE, turning away from sin, to STOP SINNING and go after Jesus, be baptized for the washing off of your sin and thereafter to SIN NO MORE. Many believers do not know Jesus because they never repented. They are living in sin and they are on their way to hell. We read in 1 John 3:5-10 “You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. 6No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. 7Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous;8the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 9No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.”
You cannot be in sin and with Jesus. Sinning Christians are not with Jesus, they are following after satan. Most modern day Christians never repented and most of those who did, have gone back to sin. Their sin separates them from Jesus. If they do not repent of their sins and go back to Jesus they will end up in hell. It is not the will of God that any perish, but that all repent, live holy and have eternal life.
Believers keep on living in sin and think God will not judge them.
Believers who do not repent of sin and return to Jesus and bear good fruit will get cut off and burned. They will end up in hell. There is no other option, no other hope but to return to Jesus and follow Him.
Many have strayed. Many are on the broad road that leads to destruction, It is not the will of God that they perish. God has no pleasure in the death of a sinner, but rather that they repent and have life. Jesus will never reject a sinner that repents. Jesus never changes. He loves and cares for us.
Many believe that they have committed the unpardonable sin. Satan is telling them that Jesus will not take them back. He is a liar and a deceiver and will do anything to keep you from returning to Jesus. Do not believe him. Repent and turn to Jesus. Where else can you go? Only Jesus can help us and He will welcome you with open arms if you return to Him. Don’t go to other people. Don’t look for Bible scriptures. Go to Jesus. Repent, from the heart, with remorse over your sin. Plead Him to forgive you. Be serious and stop sinning. Cut the sins out of your life. Clean up your life and Jesus will accept you.
Do not delay. Do not let anything stop or distract you. Today might be your last day and last opportunity to return to Jesus. Go to Jesus and stay with Him until the end.
May Jesus bless you.
