All who claim so, will not be rescued by Jesus the Messiah. Are there sure ways to avoid eternal destruction?
Christians do not agree on all doctrines. We do not have to. But we have to be sure about what salvation is. And every Christian must be sure the Messiah has confirmed that he or her name has been written in the book of life.
Are you sure you are among the remnant of mankind that the Messiah will rescue?
The basis messages of salvation, is that Jesus has taken our place on the cross. We all deserve to be tortured and die, face judgment and be sent to Hell.
Any man who deny this, rejects the very core of salvation. Only if you understand that you are an enemy of God, and deserve nothing but His wrath, you will be able to grasp the consequences of rejecting Him.
Based on a divinely revealed fear of God, you will be able to repent. Make a U-turn. Only when you understand that you are dead in your sins, and eternally lost, you will be able to invite the Messiah into your life as God, King and savior. The Messiah who died to pay the ultimate price for your sins on Calvary Hill, and ressurected from the grave for your justification.
Next: You will be adopted into His sonship, and become a child of God. Obeying His commands, which He has written inside your heart and mind. Enabled and enboldend by the Holy Ghost.
This Sunday I heard a pastor saying that the “fear of God, has to be understood as reverence for Him”. This is false teaching. Only those who understand that there is a consequence of rejecting His Lordship, will continue to fear God. Fear of God is not a surpassing state of mind, of immature Christians. It’s a fruit of being saved, and being willing to go through a process of sanctification and holiness. Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. People who do not fear God are fools.
How do I know I continue to walk down the narrow path?
Ask your self these questions:
1. Do you do what the Messiah tell you?
2. Is what you do based on truth?
3. Is what you do have a noble cause?
4. Is what you do just?
5. Is what you do pure?
6. Is what you do of good report?
7. Is what you do giving the Messiah all the honor?.
8. Is only the Messiah Lord in your life?
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
There is a narrow path, and a narrow gate. Without the fear of God, you will not walk down this path, and make it through the narrow gate. Most people, sooner than alter, will become a friend of the World. And they will perish.
Not a God-feearing person like you, I presume?
