The SECRET of Hearing the Voice of God

Jesus said:”My sheep hear My voice and they follow Me.” He did not say that some of My sheep hear My voice, all of His sheep hear His voice, but not all Christians are His sheep; not all believers are really interested in hearing the voice of God. Most Christian believers are not interested in knowing Jesus. They are not interested in the kingdom of God. They just want salvation and they don’t want to go to hell.

Some of them want to hear the voice of God, but for their own purposes, and God is not used nor abused by men. Jesus Christ is Lord and we are here to glorify Him, to serve Him, to follow Him and to obey Him. The kingdom of God is about Jesus. Jesus invites us to follow Him. Jesus promises His Holy Spirit gifts to those who love Him, who obey Him and who follow Him. Jesus promised the baptism in the Holy Spirit to all those who obey Him, but believers are not interested. Some believers have a serious desire for the baptism of the Holy Spirit and to hear the voice of God, but then instead of staying with Jesus and persisting with Him, seeking Him with all their heart, they start listening to the theologians. They start listening to other Christians, who are not followers of Jesus, others who are not His sheep and then they follow after those sheep, instead of seeking Jesus with all their heart. Jesus said:”Whoever is thirsty, come to the waters and drink.” He invites everybody but not all believers are thirsty. Very few seek the will of God. They seek their own desires, they do not want to do the will of God. They do not want to really hear the voice of God and therefore because they are not serious they never get to hear His voice.

If we are serious about following Jesus Christ and we seek him with all our heart then He will quickly answer us. He will reveal Himself to us, but we have to press on in. We have to seek Him with all our heart, be diligent, be persistent and we will learn that the kingdom of God is not about us and about our desires, it is about Jesus Christ and doing his will. People want to hear from God for their own purposes. God speaks for His purposes, for the building of His kingdom. If we are not interested in Jesus Christ, in knowing Him, in His kingdom, in serving Him, in being pleasing to Him, then we will not hear from Him. His sheep hear His voice and they follow Him because they love Him and they want to serve Him. If you truly seek Jesus and you want to serve Him, if you want to be part of His kingdom, you will hear His voice. He will speak to you. He will reveal Himself to you. Jesus said:”He who has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me, and me and My Father will come and dwell with him and I will reveal Myself to him.” If you truly seek Jesus and you obey His words, then you will get to know Him for real. He will reveal Himself to you. He will speak to you. He will guide you. He will teach you and He will give you understanding; but if you persist in your own ways, if you trust more in what other people say, if you trust more in what you read in the Bible, then you can forget about it. Jesus will not speak to you.

Jesus said to the Pharisees:”You diligently search the scriptures in there to find eternal life but you refuse to come to Me to have life.” Do you want life? Do you want to hear the voice of God? Then seek Jesus with all your heart. Seek Jesus with all your heart and He will reveal Himself to you.

May Jesus bless you.

Your Eternal Net Worth

All that will matter a moment that we die is whether we have a treasure in heaven. It is not about what we did for Jesus or for the kingdom of God. It is about whether we served the purpose that Jesus called us for. Did we do the will of God? Were we in Christ? Did we make ourselves available to Jesus? Did we follow Him and obey Him and did we do what He required of us?

Jesus calls each and every one of us for a specific purpose. It is not about what we think is important to God, it is about what Jesus requires of us, because without Jesus we can do nothing. Jesus said that if we remain in Him we will bear much fruit, because without Him we can do nothing. Do we have a treasure in heaven? Are we living for the kingdom of God and are we serving that purpose for which Jesus called us? We can only serve that purpose if we listen to His voice and follow Him and do what He commands us to do every day.

Where is our treasure, here on earth where moth and rust destroys, or do we have a treasure in the kingdom of heaven? What is our eternal net worth? Will Jesus invite us into his kingdom when we die or will He say to us:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.”

May Jesus bless you.

Words of LIFE

Man shall not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Jesus Christ is the Word of God. The words of Jesus are Spirit and life. They give life to those who hear them and who obey them.

People get excited about the words and the teachings of preachers of mere men, but they reject the words of Jesus Christ. Believers quote the words of the servants of Jesus, rather than the words of Jesus Himself. The words of Jesus are the words of life, the words that He spoke as they are recorded in the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and the words of Jesus that He speaks to His servants, His disciples, His followers; they give life to those who listen and obey. Those are the words of life, not the words of men.

Are we listening to Jesus? Do we hear His voice and do we hear the words of life? Do we obey Him and do we have life? Do we take seriously the words of Jesus? Do we crave and ask for Him to speak to us, to guide us and to teach us, or do we run after mere men, after people who cannot help us? Only Jesus has the words of eternal life. Listen to Jesus and you will live. Listen and your soul will live.

May Jesus bless you.

Follow Jesus not other Christians

Most people are like sheep, they follow after other sheep. If you know sheep you will know that if you can get one sheep to go into a direction the others will follow him. The very same with Christians,

most Christians are like sheep that follow after the sheep. However, Jesus Christ has a small flock of true sheep. His sheep listen to His voice and they follow Him. They do not follow after other sheep. All that matters to them is what Jesus says.

Most Christian believers run after other believers. They love to fellowship with other sheep. They love to listen to the wisdom of preachers. They will quote people, they will quote the Apostles; Peter, Paul and John but they will not quote the words of Jesus Christ. They will listen to the preachings and the teachings of Bible teachers, but they do not listen to the words of Jesus Christ. They do not treasure the words of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The words of Jesus are the words of eternal life. Jesus Christ is the word of God Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God Jesus Christ is the only way the truth and the life and that is why His sheep listen to His voice, they do not run after other sheep. They do not listen to other sheep, they listen to the Master. they listen to their Shepherd, Jesus Christ, because they know His voice and they follow Him. The words of Jesus Christ are the words of eternal life for those who obey Him, those who obey His commands, and He reveals Himself to those who seek Him, who obey His words. He gives His Holy Spirit in them and He guides them. He speaks to them. He himself is their Shepherd and they follow Him. If we follow after other sheep, other believers, we will go stray.

Most believers run after the blind leaders of the blind and they all fall into the ditch. There is only one way, and that, is follow Jesus Christ. Obey His words. It does not matter what Peter said, what Paul said; there might be some truth in what they said but only the words of Jesus Christ are the words of eternal life. We must follow and obey Jesus Christ to have life. If we follow after others we will perish.

Do not follow after men. Do not follow after other sheep. Follow after Jesus Christ. Listen to Him. Be guided by His Spirit and you will live. Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God; they are His true sheep. Do not follow after men. Follow after Jesus and you will have life.

May Jesus bless you.

God Engineers our Circumstances

When you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Master, He accepts you as a child of God.You come under His CARE and PROTECTION and He will be watching over you until the very end.
Nothing can happen to you that He does not allow. There is no good or bad luck in the life of a child of God. God has a plan and a purpose for each of His children. He has also prepared works for each child to do, a function to fulfill.
We can only serve His purpose if we OBEY Him and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ gives the Holy Spirit to live in and to guide and teach every child who seeks to obey Him.
He will never force us to obey Him but He will be involved in our lives until the very end, because He cares. We have the choice however, to obey or disobey Him. Jesus does not hold us captive but if we disregard and disobey Him we will face the consequences.
As a child of God, We have to live in obedience to the rules of Jesus, His words, His commands, as also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as Jesus also commanded His disciples: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16“He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.” Mark 16:15,16. Also as we read in Matthew 28:19,20 Jesus said:“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you;”
If we love Jesus, we will obey Him and He will give His Holy Spirit to come and dwell in us. We read in John 14:20 20“In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 21“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.” … “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.”
Jesus Himself will teach us and guide us and give us understanding of His will, IF we obey His words and if we seek to be pleasing to Him.
If we disobey Him and disregard Him, stray from Him, we will come under discipline. The discipline of the Lord can be very harsh as we read Paul’s testimony in Acts 26:14 When Jesus spoke to him on the Damascus road and said to him: “It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”
What are the goads? A goad is a spiked stick used to drive cattle.
The discipline of the Lord can be hard and unpleasant because He wants to correct us, so that we can share in His holiness and that we can be suitable for His kingdom, so that we can change our ways to be obedient children of God.
We must seek the will of the Lord in all things and TRUST Him when we pray. When things do not work out as we hoped or expected we must submit to Jesus and yield to His will because He makes all things work together for good, for those who love Him, for those who are called according to His purpose, for His children.
If we keep on going after our own will then the Lord will give us our desires but will often give it to us but then we will have to live with the consequences that can often be very painful and unpleasant. As we read in Psalm 106:14,15. 14But craved intensely in the wilderness, And tempted God in the desert. 15So He gave them their request, But sent a wasting disease among them.”
Paul also writes in Romans 1:24
“24Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.”
Many children of God continue in their wicked ways. Many of them say that they cannot stop sinning and they think that God will excuse them, somehow, because they believe and because they are children of God but God is the impartial judge, as Paul also writes in Romans 2:4-11. 4Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance? 5But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, 6who WILL RENDER TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: 7to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life; 8but to those who are selfishly ambitious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, wrath and indignation. 9There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek, 10but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 11For there is no partiality with God.
We will reap what we sow. Jesus warned that every branch in Him that does not bear fruit will get cut off and burned.
John 15:1-6 “ 1“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2“Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 3“You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. 6“If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned.”
God watches over His children. Let us conduct ourselves worthy of Jesus. If we don’t we will get disciplined. Those who do not mend their ways will not enter His kingdom. It is not just a matter of sin and righteousness, but of fitting into God’s plan and doing His will. We have to be obedient children that do the Father’s will.
Are we fitting into God’s plan? Are we obedient children? Are we worthy of Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.

The World is Utterly Deceived and in Darkness

The world is utterly deceived and in darkness because of lies. Jesus Christ is the light of the world. He is the way and the truth and the life and He gives the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit, in those who believe in Him and who obey Him. Those who have received the Holy Spirit and who follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, they are not in darkness. They know the truth and the truth makes them free.

Very few people are led by the Holy Spirit. Very few believers even have the Holy Spirit and that is why they are in darkness. They are being deceived. If you do not have the Holy Spirit and if you do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit every day, then you are being deceived. Have you submitted your life to Jesus Christ? Do you follow and obey Him? Have you repented of sin and of following after the lies that are being told in this world? Have you been baptized in water as Jesus commanded? Have you received the Holy Spirit that He promised to those who obey Him and do you follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit?

If you do not have the Holy Spirit and do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you are in darkness and you are being deceived. Those who are being led by the Spirit of God they are the children of God; they are not in darkness, they walk in the light because they follow Jesus Christ. Are you walking in the light? Are you following Jesus Christ?

May Jesus bless you.
