“24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.”
Brothers and Sisters do you Pay Attention to your Life? Do you Consider Your Words, Your Actions or do You Live How Ever You Feel Is Right according to the Comfort Of Your Flesh? Jesus says that We Must deny our Flesh, deny how we once were, and We Must Walk According To HIS WILL, and according to HIS WAYS.
Too many of you take Salvation for granted, abusing The Grace that The Father has given us by His Son, through His Sacrifice to Pay For our Sins.
Whether you want to Accept The Fact or not, what you Do, and what you Say will be Judged By Jesus and according to His Word that is the Same As The Fathers.
I have been reminded over the years that if God’s People would Do and Say what He Tells us to, then WE WOULD HAVE PEACE IN JESUS! If we were to Rise Up, Speak Aloud, Walk Accordingly there would be Change throughout the land that would Glorify The Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
“Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.”
Brothers and Sisters it takes Hard Work to be a Child Of God. There are so many Entities that Rise Against our very
Existence…WE JUST ALLOW IT!!! You sit back in your homes doing nothing thinking that someday you Might actually be a Child Of God or that Someone else will do it…For YOU…Jesus HAS!
You sit back with your Fleshly Microscopes Dividing the Word, not according to God, but according to What Makes You Feel Good and then when you find that, you Convince Others of the Same False Doctrine. Yes, I said False Doctrine, by Using The Bible IMPROPERLY! You can take any Scripture Out Of Context, changing its Original Meaning. I’ll give you an example: the Scriptures tell us that God is a God Of Love, which is a True Statement, but, if we do not speak of Living According To His Will within the Statement Of God Is A God Of Love, then the First Statement becomes False. See you missed it, Yes Jesus Loves us Unconditionally, but After That Fact, After Acceptance, He Demands Change!
Do not get Change as a manner for Your Salvation, we are Not Saved By Works, but OUR WORKS Define Us, Bearing a Witness that We Are The Children Of God. If the World does not See Jesus In You, by Works, which is, By Your Speech, By Your Actions, By Whom You Associate With, then what YOU Present is a False Doctrine!
“8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
Brothers and Sisters the very Walk that we should have is the same Walk that The Father Desired of Adam and Eve, it is No Different! Our God is a Patent God, Longing for His Children to be Obedient, to Want to have a Relationship With Him. When The Father sent Jesus He took away Every Excuse Not To Walk As The Father Desires. So what that means… YOU are Choosing NOT to Walk according to The Fathers Will. There is No One, Nothing Controlling YOU as though you were Possessed, a Robot following Directions without Choice, but YOU do have a Choice…EVERY MOMENT OF TIME!!!
“19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. 20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21 For if God spared not the natural branches, [take heed] lest he also spare not thee. 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in [his] goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. 23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. 24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural [branches], be graffed into their own olive tree?”
We, Brothers and Sisters, we The Gentiles have been Warned. That even as Israel, God’s Chosen, rejected to Follow The Will Of The Father and cast them to the side, He Can also do so to us. So many of you are Hind Minded thinking that you are Saved, that Salvation is Secured, that Nothing can Dissolve this Gift, but you are mistaken.
“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.”
“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”
I know there are a lot of people that would argue that they cannot ever lose their Salvation, that No MATTER WHAT they Do or Say makes any difference. But see if Salvation was The Fathers Only Concern, then why are All Of His Words So Important? Why did Jesus say that If WE Love HIM we will keep His Commandments…
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
See in The Fathers Love, it is filled with Obedience To His Will. If it were so easy to Gain Salvation, to Keep Your Name Written In The Book Of Life, then all anyone would need, is to Accept that Jesus is the Son Of God, believe that He Is and Your Salvation Is Secure…that’s a One Liner…Why do I need any other Scriptures?
Keeping Jesus Commandments is an Act Of Love, to a God Of Love filled with Do’s and Don’ts, making up His Love toward us.
If were so easy then why would Jesus even say that we Must Endure Until The End?
“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
The Enduring is Keeping God’s Holy Word EVEN Unto Death! That means from the Beginning of Salvation to Heaven, nothing must be Lost in the middle. This means that if The Holy Scriptures tells us Not to be Unequally Yoked and you do it anyway, then it becomes SIN! Sin has a Price, it Requires the Believer to Repent To Jesus who Has Paid The Price that The Father Requires. You cannot do your own thing, changing God’s Word to fit your own fleshly desire, Jesus is Unchangeable!
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
This statement says, that The Father, The Son and Holy Spirit have Never Changed, nor will They. What The Father Required for Sin still stands and it was Paid For by His Son Jesus…that only takes care of One Part… When we Fall, then we Find Grace…How…By Repentance…for Without Repentance…THERE IS NO GRACE, and NO MERCY. Repentance is a Never Ending Plea, it is Daily, it is by Moment to Moment. Do you want to take a chance that if you do not Walk According to God’s Grace that nothing will happen to you.
Consider these Scriptures…
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
“But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
“7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all [men], especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”
“21 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. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Again if we only needed a One Liner, “Accept Jesus You Have Eternal Salvation…End Of Story”, then why do we have these Scriptures and many others that Forewarn Us, that say that The Father will Not Be Mocked, that How Ever we Live we will also Reap and if I Call upon The Name Of Jesus As Lord and yet do Not Do As My Lord Says then why do I need to Fear Him Who Can Destroy Me?
There are many False Doctrines that are in the World and all are to the Will Of Man, Not God. Scriptures tell us that there is One Word, One Father and it is by this One Word, One Father, that Judgment will be carried out on, Jesus being The Judge.
“3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.”
“So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.”
“In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.”
Brothers and Sisters examine your Lives from Your Speech to Your Actions do they Cry Out that Jesus Is Lord Over Your Life or can anyone even see Jesus In You? Let this Cry be in Every Blood Bought…
“23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if [there be any] wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Mind Thy Walk!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
