Right now, from the Pew Research Center, for the Year 2020 there are approximately 31% of the World’s Population that Believe in Jesus. In the Gallup poll, in the United States, 24% believe the Bible is the Literal Word Of God and in Barna Research 29% believe the Bible has Transformed their lives. I would say, from my own observation, less than Ten Percent Live What Jesus Says, that is, What The Bible Says!!! That is only 7.8 Million People out of 7.8 Billion People!
This is very concerning! Understand, these Percentages are Approximate, and I would say they are skewed in some fashion, probably more to the lesser than the greater, that is, the Percentages are Less than they are accounting for.
We also need to understand that We have a Fifty/Fifty Chance to be Obedient to God’s Holy Word, that is, in every situation there is always Two Choices. One Choice leads to God’s Will, the other goes against God’s Will, but, it is YOUR CHOICE TO MAKE!!! Now, some are thinking how I figure this Fifty/Fifty…
“Two [men] shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.”
“Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.”
“1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five [were] foolish.”
This would indicate, that Fifty Percent Believe and that Fifty Percent do not Believe that Jesus is The Son Of God! Just as with the Virgins, Fifty Percent were Foolish, they made their Own Choice to be Prepared for Jesus to come. This sounds great…but is it? This not an indication to Walking In Obedience, but only to a Percentage that will Believe. But this is still not good. The Fifty Percent that Choose to Believe still have a Judgement Waiting for them.
There is more to it than “Just Believing”…
“19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”
There are Three Judgment’s that will occur, The First Enter Into Heaven because Your Name is Written in The Lambs Book Of Life…
“He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.”
The Second will be to those who are Not In The Lambs Book Of Life…
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
The Third Judgment which everyone seems to overlook, it again is to those Whose Names are In The Lambs Book Of Life… it is your Reward and your Placement in Heaven…
“9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, [ye are] God’s building. 10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”
1 Corinthians 3:9-15
“12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward [is] with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”
“15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made [them] other five talents. 17 And likewise he that [had received] two, he also gained other two. 18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. 19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21 His lord said unto him, Well done, [thou] good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, [there] thou hast [that is] thine. 26 His lord answered and said unto him, [Thou] wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and [then] at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give [it] unto him which hath ten talents. 29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth [his] sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed [thee]? or thirsty, and gave [thee] drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took [thee] in? or naked, and clothed [thee]? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did [it] not to one of the least of these, ye did [it] not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”
So, what I do In Life will be Judged and that Judgment can bring a Reward or Damnation! I know that most people do not use their Talents that God has given them to Glorify His Name, but most do their Talents to Glorify Themselves or even others. God, has given to Every Man, Every Woman and Every Child the Means To Glorify Him, but, it is Our Choice!!!
Too many of you Gamble with Life in general and with Eternal Life. You think that just because you Believe that all is well, that Eternal Life is a Guarantee all based on Your Confession…
“9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
The problem is this… “Shalt Believe” is not just what comes out of the Mouth, but it is an Action Phrase, that is, You Must Act Upon Your Confession! Too many of you Walk based on the First Part of this Scripture…”…if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus…” and you stop at that point not completing the Confession In Your Life!!
Jesus said, that My Actions are a Confession To My Faith and according to My Actions Life Eternal…
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.”
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
I have found that there is less than Ten Percent that Do The Will Of The Father, many are led astray by those who are in charge, that is, within the church walls. Many are led astray because they read a bible that has taken away key points that instruct us How To Live Out The Fathers Will. One of the biggest places that Disobedience happens it within the Home Life, where Woman have not taken the place as Help Mate, but have taken that they are The Head or Equal with the Man, teaching Children By Their Actions Of Disobedience to Be Disobedient!!!
It first starts with God, then Man. If Men will not Rise Up and take the Position that The Father has given them, then, Satan Rushes in taking control of The Home. If Women will not be a Help Mate to their Husbands, as The Father intended, but in Rising Up Against him, Satan Rushes in, taking control of The Home. If Children will not learn to be Obedient to their Parents, but they Rise Up Against Them Both, again Satan Rushes in taking control of The Home. All of these things Affect The Church, Affect Our Society not to Fear God, Teaching them to be Disobedient without Repercussions To Their Actions!!!
We need to Fall In Love With Jesus so much that it is Only Jesus that we See and Hear! That our everyday Lives are an Action Of Love always Illustrating Jesus In Us!! It takes more than “…I Believe…”, it takes a Relationship with Jesus and a Relationship Without Actions Of Obedience, is NOT A RELATIONSHIP, IT IS DISOBEDIENCE!!!
Think about it…You Have a Fifty/Fifty Chance every moment of the day to Choose to Serve Jesus, do not be the Ninety Percent that Walk In Disobedience!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
