We have to follow Jesus until the end to have Eternal Life. Jesus said. “He who endures until the end will be saved. The prize of eternal life is for overcomers who stayed with Jesus and obeyed Him, and who endured with Him until the end.
The road of discipleship is the road less travelled. It is a lonely road but it is the only road that leads to Life. “And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, 24“Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.” Luke 13:23,24. Few find it because few follow Jesus.
Most Christian Believers follow dead religious practices. They do not know nor follow Jesus. To follow Jesus requires knowing Jesus, knowing His voice, listening, in complete TRUST and obedience in all circumstances. We have to stay with Jesus every step of the way, all the way, until the end.
This is not the message preached in churches, because they are not leading people to Jesus. and to Life, but to damnation.
The kingdom of God is for WINNERS, OVERCOMERS, CHAMPIONS, those who have resisted temptation, overcome sin, overcome their own flesh, denied themselves,, picked up their own cross and followed Jesus through all trials, temptations, hardship, pain, good times and bad times, until the end.
It is humanly impossible to do what Jesus requires of us and inherit the kingdom of God IF we do not know Him, and utterly trust and obey Him, until the end. Without Jesus we can do nothing. The KEY is our relationship with Jesus, nothing else. No other person, preacher, prophet, Christian fellowship, no Bible study, other than the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Through obedience to the words of Jesus we will get to know Him and be able to follow Him.
Obey the words of Jesus, get to know Him. Completely TRUST Him, FOLLOW and OBEY Him, UNTIL THE END, and you will have LIFE.
May Jesus bless you.
