You need to be sure Jesus knows you

All who claim so, will not be rescued by Jesus the Messiah. Are there sure ways to avoid eternal destruction?

Please read this, and pay serious attention to the possibility that you are not among the few.

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?

Philippians 4:8
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?

Be wise.

  1. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not PERISH but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17 The word ‘perish’ means eternal damnation, it means to go into a place that was created for the devil and his angels and it is eternal hell where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, and eternal torment, and to be destroyed! As the rich man says because he is still there, “And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.” “But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy life time receivedst thy good things, but now he is comforted and thou are tormented.” Luke 16:24 & 25. We Must Be Born Again! John 3:3. “……. Call upon the Lord and thou shalt be saved…..” Acts 16:31. JESUS IS GOD! Praise the Lord!

  2. 1 Peter 2: As Newborn Babes
    1 Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,

    2 like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word,

    so that by it you may grow in respect to

    SALVATION,

    3 if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.

    Note in verse 3 the ‘if’ word.

    I have asked in the past, why did Jesus speak in parables and responses vary.

    Through the responses it is possible to learn a number of things.

    The Pastor taught the “fear of God, has to be understood as reverence for Him”.

    The Pastors statement could be seen as ‘milk’ of the word. He might be hoping that some might be drawn to desire a closer relationship with God if at first they could show ‘reverence for Him’. Then they might go on to grow in respect to salvation.

    A more meatier statement could put the fear of God into someone AND scare them off altogether.

    7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.

    Look at the LordS Prayer

    Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed is your name.

    It teaches us to show ‘reverence’ to God in the first sentence.

    Only God can see into the heart of man, so only He knows to what depth an individual reveres Him. But having deep reverence is a start.

    Of course the rest of the proverb explains to us clearly how God views those who don’t desire understanding.

    And the line in the piece that caught my attention.

    Christians do not agree on all doctrines. We do not have to.

    As Christians grow in understanding they will learn, and while they might not agree on doctrine at first, as they grow, they must agree.

    What is the Bible for?

    16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for

    DOCTRINE,

    for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
    17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

    Salvation came by the blood of the Lamb of God, it is a gift from God.

    Go back to the parable of the sower. Through that we can learn why even though some understand salvation they do not grow in understanding.

    It is all down to the condition of the ground the seed is sown into.

    In some it takes root and grows steadily, in some it sprouts quickly and whithers and others, the tares take hold and choke the truth before it grows to maturity.

    Jesus said John 14
    6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

    And He also said

    44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

    And

    37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.
    38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

    Looking at the above verses we can see that it is ‘the Father’ in heaven who draws whoever He so chooses, and they must respond and the promise is there, that the the one who comes to Him, He will ‘by no means cast out’.

    16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.

    Turning to one of the parables.

    The parable of the wheat and the tares.

    The wheat was sown by the Lord Jesus Christ.

    The tares were sown by His enemy.

    So, there is sound doctrine – wheat and false doctrine – tares.

    The servants asked if they should remove the tares.

    The Lord Jesus said no, leave them till the harvest.

    There are some who spend their time trying to remove the tares, something the Lord Jesus said we are not to do.

    If someone says something that doesn’t seem quite right, Paul gave us advice.

    Be like the noble Jews of Berea, listen carefully, or in this case, read carefully and then study scripture to see if what is being taught is true.

    The Pastor taught the milk flavoured version of the fear of God.

  3. Amen I see the chruch all wrapped up in the world, thinking that they can do what ever they want and be saved. But yeshua sais IF you love ME , keep my commandments and IF you love ME , follow ME. NO one will have an excuse. as a friend of the world is treason in Heaven. the great falling away is here and they choose to do as they like and convince what all they do is ok because they believe and are repentant for awhile. but the L-rd gave us the Precious HOLY SPIRT which is our strength to be Overcomers. HE won’t be mocked . We are to tell the sinner that HE is a sinner and can be saved tell them three times and if they reject it, from such turn away. Like G-d says, Either believe ME or the World. If fwe ask the Holy Spirt to lead us into all truth HE WILL. That is why Paul seen this truth and it showed Him how to become a overcomer. We either love the L-rd G-d Almighty or the world..it is overtime to choose who we will serve. Most don’t want to beleive that and think they can be friends with the world…like the rich man G-d said, knowing his heart , give all you have and follow me. and like the world he just could not give up the love of money. It wasnt that money is bad, it is HE loved It more than G-d…There is nothing in this old world I would even think of putting before G-d and His word..nothing ..HE gave HIS ALL and we must except HIS Wrod…and yes, the fear is the BEGINNING OF Wishdom which we can let it growing HIS Word and love every second of His Precious Word..He sees whether we are striving for that. we all know we fail at times but HE is faithful to forgive if we repent in sorrow. When Paul failed HE called himself the chief sinner..We need to pray oftern and always tell HIM HOW thankful we are and bless HIS NAME…

  4. Amein!!

    Jesus ( Yeshua ) is KING of kings, LORD of lords, HE is the ALPHA and OMEGA, the FIRST and the LAST, HE is the BEGINNING and the END!! Hallelujah and Maranatha!!

    Jesus ( Yeshua ) is the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE, no one comes unto the FATHER, but through ME!! ( Jesus-Yeshua )!!

    Love Always and Shalom Everyone,

    Kristi Ann
