Do you realize that your sins crucified Jesus, and that you deserved to be the one slaughtered on that cross in Jerusalem? Good. You have understood who you are, and what the only living God has done for you.

Many who claim they know the Messiah is not willing to follow Him, to be crucified to the desires of this world.

«How many of us believers are going out and doing exactly what Jesus did for others?»

Jesus told us in plain words that performing miracles and wonders in His name, will not give anyone the «ticket» to the Kingdom of Heaven. You have to do the will of the Father.

Matthew 7:21-23

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

Lets take a look on some examples of what separates a true follower of the risen Messiah Jesus from hypocrites and carnal «Christians»

Forgive:

Matthew 6:15
But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Jesus paid for our sins when we were all sinners. So we are called to forgive those who sin against us, with out setting up conditions. Do not say: «I forgive, and I forget». That is not forgiveness. Jesus will never forgive you, and than forget you. True forgiveness gives us a spirit of healing and reconciliation.

Share:

Matthew 25:35

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.

True Christians share what they have, and always desire to bless others. They walk the talk. Do not desire and promote blessings coming your way from others. Do never say that poverty is a curse, and bring a curse on your own head.

Give:

Luke: 6:38:

Give, and it will be given to you.

True Christians give everything they have to Jesus. They renounce this World as evil. and enjoy blessings in the Holy Ghost. Many people only give him a «tenth», or parts of what they have. They keep for them selves in abundance, an enjoy their life in the flesh. Storing up riches on Earth.

Tell:

Matthew 28:19-20

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

True followers of Jesus share their faith with others. They always tell the truth about Him, Regardless of the cost of doing so. When you make a mistake, be quick to ask Jesus for mercy. His love is endless for those who fear Him. Do not compromise and corrupt your self, by justifying sin. Do not be ruled by fear of men and society.

Jews:

Genesis 17: 17-19

Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, “Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?” And Abraham said to God, “If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!”

Then God said, “Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.

If you ever met a Jew, do not harm him. The Messiah who scattered Israel, has gathered them again. Do not deny the Jewish people their birth right to return to, live and build in the promised land, Eretz Israel.

Go:

Luke 10:3:

Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.

True followers will go to the next village. They will look for a man of peace. We have to follow Him, The Messiah. Do not stay put in your house and watch TV day and night. Do not be of the opinion that simply going to a fellowship or a churches is what the Father requires, and that such attendance will save you.

Everyone wants healing and financial blessings. But were few people want to give up their fleshy desires, make a u-turn and follow Jesus the Messiah.

Since false Messiah`s has been granted the powers to perform miracles and wonders, this kind of manifestation is not always a proof that the Holy Spirit is present. But surely miracles and wonders will follow in your footsteps, when you do the Fathers will.

The only thing that Satan can not copy is true repentance, a fruit that follows those who preach Jesus crucified for our sins, and the only way to Heaven. There is no love outside of the truth. The truth is often painful. Worldly tears are crocodile tears of self pity. The guilt of the sin that crucified Jesus will produce godly tears. This is the only true signal from Heaven, that a person has been born from above.

Thats why John the Baptists said: «You brood of vipers. Show me fruit of repentance». They will follow a person who has been born again.
