Jesus speaks HARSHLY His guidance is FIRM

The words of Jesus are not nice, and that is why the world rejects Jesus. That is why people do not want to follow Jesus. The words of Jesus pierce us, they cut us to pieces. Jesus guides His sheep, they listen to Him and they follow Him but His words to them are not always nice.

The words of Jesus bring us into the right relationship with Him, they make us humble and they bring us into the fear of God. Most Christian believers do not know Jesus and therefore they do not know His words. They do not recognize when He is speaking to them. They want Jesus to speak to them but they expect Him to be nice with them, to tell them nice things about themselves. They have the wrong expectation. The words of Jesus purify us, cleanse us, correct us, discipline us.

The discipline of Jesus is firm. The guidance of the Holy Spirit is exact. When Jesus speaks to us then we shrivel and we come under the fear of God, we realize own insignificance and His holiness, we realize that He is Lord and that we have to serve Him. We have to follow him His way. When Jesus disciplines us, when He puts sickness onto us, we cannot a shrug off His hand and say:” I did not feel it.” If Jesus puts you into a sickbed to speak to you, you can run to the doctor, you can take medication; it will not help, because when Jesus speaks to you you will hear, because you cannot shrug off the hand, and the discipline of Jesus Christ. He makes sure that He gets your attention.

The guidance of the Holy Spirit is exact, because Jesus requires obedience of us, utter obedience. We have to do exactly what He tells us to do. We cannot follow our own mind. If we follow Jesus we must submit ourselves to His guidance and to His discipline. We must fear Him and we must respect Him, and when He speaks to us we must humble ourselves and submit to Him, because He is God, He is Lord. Our God is a consuming fire and those who walk with Him walk with fire, they fear Him they respect Him and they love Him.

The kingdom of God is not about your feelings or your image, it is about Jesus Christ. It is about dying to self and living for Jesus. It is about obedience and the fear of God, to serve Him with awe and reverence, because He is an awesome God. Most believers do not recognize when Jesus is speaking to them because they do not expect Him to speak to them harshly, they say it’s the devil, but they do not recognize Him because they do not know Him.

When we follow Jesus, we live and walk under the fear of God, and we subject ourselves to the discipline of the Holy Spirit, we serve Him as Lord and Master.

May Jesus bless you.

Guard Your Walk

Jesus Christ will never leave us and He will never forsake us. He will always be there with us, but we have to stay with Him until the very end. We have to guard our walk with Him. If we stray from Jesus, if we leave Him, He will not hold us back. He will call us back.

If we stray He might discipline us, put circumstances in our way to turn us from our wicked ways, to turn us back to Him. Many believers do not recognize the hand of God when He disciplines them. They become hardened of heart through the deceitfulness of their sin, because they went their own way. The Holy Spirit will call us back, convict us to change our ways, but He will never force us.

Our relationship with Jesus, our walk with Him, is our responsibility. The quality of our walk with Him depends entirely on us, because Jesus is faithful, but if we are unfaithful we will lose Him, we will lose eternal life. We have to guard our walk with Him and make sure that we are doing what is pleasing to Him. We must make sure that we obey His commands, that which He taught, that which He commanded as also recorded in the Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

We must seek Him. We must seek His voice, His Spirit, His guidance. If we seek Him, we find Him; if we draw closer to Him, He draws closer to us. If we ask Him He will speak to us. He will guide us, He will teach us, but if we turn away from Him, if we stray from Him, we will perish, if we do not repent. We have to guard our walk with Jesus. We have to make ourselves available to Him. We have to seek His guidance, we have to seek to be pleasing to Him, because if we don’t we are not worthy of Him. If we do not guard our walk we will go stray and we will end up in hell.

Our relationship and our walk with Jesus depends entirely on us. If we are not willing He will not force us. If we don’t want to follow Him He will not force us. He loves us, He cares for us, but He will never force us. If we don’t love Him and if we don’t care for Him and we don’t care for our relationship with Him, our walk with Him, then we will not enter His kingdom. We need to seek to hear His voice. We need to seek to be guided by him. We need to seek His kingdom and His righteousness. We need to seek Jesus Himself. If we don’t, in the end we will only have ourselves to blame when He turns us away, and He says to us:”Go away, I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.” We need to cleanse our lives, repent, be baptized in water, seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit, seek to hear His voice every day. If we don’t, we will stray from Him. It depends entirely on us where we will end up. Jesus is willing and He is eager to save us, but if we don’t want to be saved, if we don’t want to walk with Him and follow Him, in the end He will deliver us to our desires. If we love other things more than Him, then we will end up where those other things take us.

How is our walk with Jesus? Are we close to Him? Do we seek to obey Him? Do we seek to hear His voice? Are we serious about the kingdom of God? Are we seeking revelation from Him, or don’t we care? Is it not a priority in our lives. If it’s not a priority then, we’re not worthy of Jesus. If we are lukewarm, He will spew us out” We have to serve Jesus and follow Him, go after Him with all our heart, with everything that is in us. Not many are being saved. Jesus said:”Strive hard, because Strait is the gate and narrow is the door and few there be that find it .” Very few want to walk with Jesus. Very few guard their walk with Jesus. Are we serious with Jesus? Do we really love Him and do we really want to enter His kingdom?

May Jesus bless you.

Religion does not impress Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is not impressed with religion. Jesus said:”Why do you call Me Lord, Lord and do not what I say?” What did Jesus say? He said:”Come here, follow Me. He is calling us to follow Him, to be in close relationship with Him, Him with us, guiding us, teaching us, coaching us, every day of our lives. He calls us to be one with Him, not to become religious.

Jesus calls us to turn away from running after our own desires, and after our own plans, after the pleasures of sin, and come to Him, to be with Him, to become part of His kingdom. He wants to come and dwell with us, give His Spirit in us, so that we can be with Him, all the time, forever, for eternity.

Religion is just a show. It’s just a book of rules, it does not bring you closer to Jesus. Jesus is calling us. He says:”Come here, follow Me, obey Me, repent, turn away from your sin, cleanse your life, be baptized in water for the washing off of your sin, come and walk with Me,” and He will give His Spirit in us, His Spirit; to dwell with us, to be with us, all the time. But people do not know that. They think that they will have eternal life through religion, through going to church, reading the Bible, talking about Jesus, religious practices, but that does not bring us closer to Jesus.

Jesus said He will say to many religious people:”Go away, I never knew you,” because they never came to Him. They never followed Him. They practiced religion. Jesus calls us to come to Him, to come and be with Him, not just to pray and then to walk away, but to be united with Him, to be in constant relationship, constant companionship, with Him, to share our thoughts with Him, His Spirit with our spirit, in unity with Him, in fellowship with Him. He calls us to walk with Him.

Have you understood the message of Jesus Christ? He says:”Come here, follow Me.” Have you turned away from running after your own desires and your own plans, and the pleasures of sin? Have you turned to Jesus? Have you come to Jesus and received His Spirit? Are you walking with Him? Do you know Him? Does He teach you? Does he guide you? Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God. If we do not have the Spirit of Christ, then we don’t belong to Him. If we are not in close communion relationship with Jesus all the time, then we do not know Him and we cannot follow Him.

Jesus is calling you and me to follow Him, not to religion, but to Himself, to become one with Him, one spirit, to become part of His kingdom. Will you answer to the call? Will you follow Jesus?

May Jesus bless you.

No Restrictions No Excuses

There are no restrictions for anybody to become a disciple of Jesus Christ and to be used by Him in a mighty way. Nothing can prevent you from being used by Jesus in a mighty way. The only thing that can prevent you is your own unwillingness.

Jesus invites everybody to follow Him, to become part of His kingdom. He has a plan and a purpose for everyone, for every disciple, for everyone who becomes part of His kingdom, but there is one requirement, and that is, we must be willing. We must totally submit to Jesus, obey Him, follow Him, trust Him, and He will use us in a mighty way.

Jesus uses those who are willing to abandon everything, to abandon their own wisdom, our own abilities, their own mind, their own desires, and subject everything to Him, to His lordship; to serve Him as Lord and Master. That is the only way to be pleasing to Jesus. That is the only way to enter His kingdom, is to totally submit to Him, to trust Him, to abandon ourselves and thrust ourselves onto Him, and He can use us for His kingdom.

There will not be any excuses for anybody for not following Jesus Christ. They will only have themselves to blame, but we have to go with Him all the way, until the very end. We have to obey Him, submit to Him, follow Him, trust Him and stay with Him until the very end.

Are you willing to follow Jesus Christ? Are you willing to become part of His kingdom, to serve Him and be used by Him? If you are not willing, you are not worthy of Jesus. Jesus Christ. is the only way to eternal life, but we have to obey Him, and serve Him as Lord and Master.

May Jesus bless you.

You don’t need a Bible to follow Jesus

You don’t need a Bible to follow Jesus Christ. Many believers will immediately attack me now and say that I’m against the Bible, that’s not true. Most believers do not follow Jesus Christ. They have Bibles but they do not obey Jesus Christ. They are not His followers. They are just believers. They believe that they have salvation because they believe in Jesus Christ, but they do not have salvation because you cannot have salvation if you do not have Jesus, and if you do not follow Him.

You cannot follow Jesus Christ if you do not have the Holy Spirit. The Bible says, Romans 8:14, “those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God, they are the sons of God.” You need the Holy Spirit to follow Jesus Christ.

Most believers do not want to follow Jesus. They believe that they are already saved because they just believe in Him for salvation, but they are deceived. Jesus Christ is the way and the truth and the life, and we need to follow Him to have eternal life. We need to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, as recorded in your Bible, in the Gospels Matthew Mark Luke and John, you need to repent and be baptized in water, turn from sin, and from your own ways, and follow Jesus. Seek Him with all your heart. He will give His Spirit in you to teach and guide you. He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit .

None of the disciples had Bibles. None of the first followers of Jesus Christ had Bibles, but they had the Holy Spirit, because they obeyed the gospel of Jesus Christ. We read in Acts 2:38 On the day of Pentecost Peter said to the people” repent and be baptized and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, that is promised to you and to your children and to all those whom the Lord our God will call unto Himself. Without the Holy Spirit we cannot follow Jesus Christ. You might have a Bible. You might know the scriptures, you might know the Bible very well, but that is of no benefit if you are not following Jesus. That is of no benefit if you do not have the Holy Spirit. You cannot follow Jesus Christ if you do not have the Holy Spirit and you only receive the Holy Spirit when you obey Him ,when you obey the gospel; repent and be baptized and then He promised to give the Holy Spirit in you, to teach you and to guide you, to be with you, until the very end. Without the Holy Spirit you cannot follow Jesus Christ.

Have you received the Holy Spirit that Jesus Christ promised to those who obey Him and are you following the guidance of the Holy Spirit every day? Those who do not have the Spirit of Christ do not belong to Him. Do you have the the Holy Spirit?

May Jesus bless you.

Jesus Calls Disciples NOT Converts Proselytes Believers

Jesus Christ commanded His disciples to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that Jesus commanded them. Jesus requires His followers to be disciples. What is wrong with the world today is that Christians are converts, proselytes, they are not disciples of Jesus Christ and this is what Jesus said to the Pharisees.

I read from a Matthew 23:15 “Woe to you,, scribes and Pharisees hypocrites because you travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte and when he becomes one you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.” What is wrong with a Christian world today is that it is full of converts, proselytes, believers; they believe in Jesus Christ, they believe in the Bible, they have converted to Christianity, but they have not become disciples of Jesus Christ. They are not born again and they are not children of God. They are sons of hell. A disciple is a born again a child of God, a person who is born of water and of the Spirit of God, a person that knows and follows Jesus Christ, His sheep that listen to His voice and who follow Him. They do not just believe in Him, but they know Him. They serve Him and they follow Him.

Those who just believe in Jesus Christ will not be saved, it is those who follow and obey Him that will have eternal life. Jesus called disciples not converts and proselytes, not Christians by name, because that means nothing. By their works you can know what they are, by their fruit you will know them, they are sinners they are not children of God. If a person follows Jesus Chris, if he has become a disciple of Jesus then he does not sin. He follows and obeys Jesus Christ, he is a child of God.

Are you a disciple of Jesus Christ, or do you just believe in Jesus for salvation? Because if you do not follow and obey Him, if you are not a disciple then you are none of Him, and He will say to you:”Go away I never knew you you worker of iniquity.”

May Jesus bless you.

Follow Jesus NOT the 10 Commandments

There is much confusion among Christian believers whether they should obey the Ten Commandment, the law of Moses, when they come to faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation is through obedience to the gospel of Jesus Christ, not through keeping, observing, the law of Moses or the Ten Commandments. You need to be born again to enter the kingdom of God.

Jesus said that unless a man is born of water and of the Spirit of God he cannot enter the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ came to take away the sins of the world and He takes away the sin of those who obey Him, who obey His gospel.

The commands of Jesus Christ are different from the Ten Commandments or the law of Moses. Jesus Christ commands us to repent of all sin, to turn to Him and to be baptized in water, to be filled with a Holy Spirit so that we can come into communion with Him.

We must be born again born of water, through baptism, and born of the Spirit of God that comes and dwells in us and guides and teaches us. If you decide to stop sinning and then observe the 10 commandments it cannot save you. The law of Moses required a blood sacrifice for the forgiveness of sin, for the blotting out of sin. Jesus Christ came and He Himself became the perfect sacrifice. He took on Himself the sin of the world, to take away the guilt of sin for those who obey Him, who accept Him and who serve Him, those who obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Salvation is through Jesus Christ alone, not through keeping the commandments.

We cannot have salvation without Jesus Christ, but if we follow Jesus we must turn away from all unrighteousness and bear good fruit. Sin separates us from Jesus. Even the slightest disobedience separates us from Him. He does not tolerate disobedience but He does not require us to keep the law of Moses. He requires of us to obey His commands, to repent and be baptized as He commanded His disciples. He said: Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I commanded you.”

Salvation is through obedience to Jesus Christ, and when we obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, His Words, if we repent and turn to Jesus and we are baptized in water for the washing off of our sin, and we embrace Jesus with all our heart, we obey His commandments, then he gives His Holy Spirit in us, to come and dwell with us. We come into communion with Jesus Christ, we are led by the Holy Spirit, we follow and obey Jesus Christ.

Without Jesus we can do nothing. You cannot save yourself by obeying the 10 commandments. Only Jesus can save us, but we have to obey Him. We have to be led by the Holy Spirit. We have to be in close relationship with Jesus. His sheep hear His voice, they listen to Him and they follow Him. The unbeliever, those who are not born again of the Spirit of God, do not hear the voice of God, and many who are born again have not been taught to listen to Jesus, and that is why they do not follow Him. That is why they do not know Him. We have to be led by the Holy Spirit. His sheep hear His voice. They listen to Him and they follow Him. It is not just a matter of living holy, righteous and without sin, it is about living in obedience to Jesus Christ.

Jesus said:”if you do not remain in Me you cannot bear fruit.” If we are not led by the Holy Spirit and we do not serve and follow Jesus under the guidance of His Spirit, we cannot be pleasing to Him. It is all about our relationship with Jesus Christ. If we follow Jesus we will not sin, because there is no sin in Him and he will not guide us into sin. We do not become Jews and we do not take on the law of Moses when we believe in Jesus Christ. We accept Jesus, we embrace Him, we follow and obey Him, and He saves those who submit themselves to Him; who accept Him as their Lord and Master.

There is no other way to have salvation. There is no other way to enter the kingdom of heaven, but through Jesus Christ, the Living Way. He is the way and the truth and the life. He is alive, but you have to obey Him to get to know Him. You have to obey His words, turn from sin, turn from a going after your own desires. Turn to Jesus, repent and be baptized in water, as He commanded. Seek Him with all your heart and He will give His Spirit in you to teach you and guide you. You will experience Jesus Christ for real, and you will know Him. You will see His kingdom. He will teach and guide you in all things but, you have to stay with Him until the very end to enter His kingdom. There is only one way to have eternal life and that is Jesus Christ. Obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him. Stay with Him until the very end, and you will have life.

May Jesus bless you.
