mikehill4jesus a Soldier for Jesus Christ

11th November 2018 (53:20) “mikehill4jesus a Soldier for Jesus Christ”

On the Narrow Road I stand. I stand on Rock, not on Sand.

Those who are not on the Narrow Road that leads to Heaven, but are on the Broad Road that leads to Hell, will fight against us without showing us any mercy.

The world hates the disciples

John 15:18 ‘If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20 Remember what I told you: “A servant is not greater than his master.”[John 13:16] If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. 21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. 24 If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. 25 But this is to fulfil what is written in their Law: “They hated me without reason.”[Psalms 35:19; 69:4]

True Disciples of Jesus are His Soldiers and are called to Fight the Evil Powers of Satan.

It does not matter who the person is that is dying, they need to fall in love with the Lord Jesus Christ and it is us Disciples of Jesus who help them to do that. We fight Satan and his followers who wants them lost.

Ephesians 6:12 ‘For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.’

Spiritual Warfare as a Soldier with Jesus

(I speak slowly because for many visitors, English is a second language)

The Doctrine of Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual Warfare is against:

  • The Devil
  • The flesh
  • Enemies
  • The World
  • Death
  • Often arises from the opposition of friends or relatives

Is not after the flesh
2 Corinthians 10:3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Is a good warfare

The charge to Timothy renewed
1 Timothy 1:18 Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, 19 holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith.

Is a good fight of faith
1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Spiritual Warfare to be carried on:

  • With the Father God, his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ making their home with the Soldier
  • Empowered by the Holy Spirit of God
  • Under Christ, our Captain
  • Under the Lord’s banner
  • With faith [But not blind faith]
  • With a good conscience
  • With steadfastness in the faith
  • With earnestness
  • With watchfulness
  • With sobriety
  • With endurance of hardness
  • With self-denial
  • With confidence in God
  • With prayer
  • Without earthly entanglements
  • Soldiers are professed Christians who are the true friends of God and man.

Mere professors do not maintain Spiritual Warfare

  • a) Those who are actuated by hope and fear, or in other words, by self-love or by selfishness.
  • b) Those who are actuated by public opinion.

True Spiritually Born-again followers of the Lord Jesus:

  • Are all engaged in it
  • Must stand firm in it
  • Exhorted to diligence in it
  • Encouraged in it
  • Helped by God in it
  • Protected by God in it
  • Comforted by God in it
  • Strengthened by God in it
  • Strengthened by Christ in it
  • Delivered by Christ in it
  • Thank God for victory in it

The armour of God
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

The whole of the armour must be fully worn

They who overcome in the Spiritual Warfare shall:

  • Eat the hidden manna
  • Eat of the tree of life
  • Be clothed in white raiment
  • Be pillars in the temple of God
  • Sit with Christ in his throne [WOW!]
  • Have a white stone, and, in it a new name written
  • Have power over the nations
  • Have the name of God written upon them by Christ
  • Have God as their God
  • Have the morning-star
  • Inherit all things
  • Be confessed by Christ before God the Father
  • Be sons of God
  • Not be hurt be the second death
  • Not have their names blotted out of the book of life

Being a True Soldier for Christ Jesus, the Lord of All

I am led in Battle by the greatest Leader there has ever been. Him, the Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son of God the Father.

My “Lord!” My “Saviour!” My “Commander!” in the heat of Battle. My “Hope!” when the Battle is not going well. My “Master!” whose Will must be done by Me. My “Judge!” whom I will have to stand before and give an account of my life. My “Avenger!” who will deal with all my Persecutors, my Enemies, unless they get saved, saved by His Perfect Gospel.

It is no longer I that live, but Him who lives in Me. The life I live in my Body is by faith, heart trust, in my Lord and Saviour who took my punishment even though He had done nothing to deserve it.

Finally, to any False Christian, an unconverted person who calls Jesus, “LORD!”, yet refuses to obey His Teachings and His Commands. John 14:24.

YOU ARE AN ENEMY OF GOD AND A FRIEND OF THE DEVIL

The Gospel of Jesus is for you! Use it now while you can!

John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. [A Soldier for Christ empowered for service by God the Holy Spirit] 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. [Cannot be a Soldier for Christ as they refuse to take orders but instead obeys the Devil] These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

The Characters of those on the Broad and Narrow Roads

28th October 2018 mikehill4jesus “The Characters of those on the Broad and Narrow Roads”

It is your decision to make! What Road are you choosing to travel along?

The be a true Disciple, the Lord Jesus must know you!
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

That means you must have fulfilled the demands of His Perfect Gospel and have him and his father come and make their home with you!

HOW CAN YOU FULFIL THE DEMANDS OF THE GOSPEL IF YOU HAVE NOT LEARNT FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE?

This is what the Lord Jesus tells us

The Lord Jesus Himself states just how hard it is for a person to enter Eternal Life with God. However, thanks be to God that we can ask Him for help and receive it.

BUT, our loving Lord gives us all a warning, Watch out for false prophets.

The aim of my website is to help you to find that narrow gate. To counter the teachings of the false prophets that seek to herd you through the wide gate that leads to Hell.

The Lord Jesus promises everyone, including You.

YOU MUST BE BAPTISED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
WHY?
BECAUSE WITHOUT THE LORD JESUS, YOU CAN DO NOTHING FOR GOD

If the Lord Jesus and Others are looking at you as you live your life, what do they see?

Do they see a person with the right Character (A saved person) or wrong Character (A lost person).

It is a challenge that we who are saved face daily, for it is so easy to slip back into old ways.

You can easily recognise those who are “Right” with God and those who are “Wrong” with God.

Those who are Right with God are Right Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, as he describes in John 14:23. “Christianity”

Those who are Wrong with God are Wrong Disciples in that they hate the Lord Jesus Christ and his true disciples, as he describes in John 14:24. “Churchianity”

On the Narrow Road with God part 1

21st October 2018 mikehill4jesus “On the Narrow Road with God part 1”

What if you believe you are on the Narrow Road that leads to Heaven, but in fact you are on the Broad Road that leads to Hell?

True and False Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:21 ‘Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 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 in your name perform many miracles?” 23 Then I will tell them plainly, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!”

The be a true Disciple, the Lord Jesus must know you!
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

That means you must have fulfilled the demands of His Perfect Gospel and have him and his father come and make their home with you!

You will never love and obey Him, if you don’t know who he is!

Many Lost Souls seek to enter Heaven through the religion called Christianity. But fail as they fall in love with their Church and it’s Leaders instead of Jesus!

This webpage is to help you learn who the Lord Jesus is, that you may choose to love Him and learn what His Gospel requires of you!

The narrow and wide gates
The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:13 ‘Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

You will not find the small gate and narrow road to Heaven if you don’t learn who the Lord Jesus is!

Who are these Followers of the Lord Jesus

30th September 2018 mikehill4jesus “Who are these Followers of the Lord Jesus”

Also in my podcast Thought for the Day Podcast Link

I have been witnessing for my Lord Jesus for 41 years and what is called Christianity, but isn’t, have refused to love and help me as Jesus commands them to.

Now isn’t that strange? Not if you know who the unsaved humans are and what they behave like. But I taught about them last week, the Followers of the Devil.

So Who are these Followers of the Lord Jesus

Jesus promises the Holy Spirit

John 14:15 ‘If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you for ever – 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see me any more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will realise that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.’

22 Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, ‘But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?’

23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

25 ‘All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Holy Spirit v Holy Bible Interpretation

[Video Published on Jan 1st 2014]

The Saved People who are truly Christian [People that I have very rarely met in my life of 74 years]

The Reward of Saints.

Is from God.
Colossians 3:24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Is of grace, through faith alone.
Romans 4:4 Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation. 5 However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.

Romans 4:16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring–not only to those who are of the law but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all.

Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.

Is of God’s good pleasure.
Luke 12:32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.

Prepared by God.
Hebrews 11:16 Instead, they were longing for a better country–a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

Prepared by Christ.
John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.

As servants of Christ.
Colossians 3:24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Not on account of their merits.
Romans 4:4 Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation. 5 However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.

Described as.

Being with Christ.
John 12:26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honour the one who serves me.

John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

Philippians 1:23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;

1 Thessalonians 4:17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

Beholding the face of God.
Psalms 17:15 And I–in righteousness I will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.

Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

Revelation 22:4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.

Beholding the glory of Christ.
John 17:24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.

Being glorified with Christ.
Romans 8:17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. 18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Colossians 3:4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Sitting in judgement with Christ.
Luke 22:30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

with

1 Corinthians 6:2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases?

Reigning with Christ.
2 Timothy 2:12 if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us;

Revelation 5:10 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.”

Revelation 20:4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Reigning for ever and ever.
Revelation 22:5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.

A crown of righteousness.
2 Timothy 4:8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day–and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

A crown of glory.
Peter I 5:4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

A crown of life.
James 1:12 Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

Revelation 2:10 Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.

An incorruptible crown.
1 Corinthians 9:25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

Joint heirship with Christ.
Romans 8:17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

Inheritance of all things.
Revelation 21:7 He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.

Inheritance with saints in light.
Acts 20:32 “Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

Acts 26:18 to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

Colossians 1:12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.

Inheritance eternal.
Hebrews 9:15 For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance–now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.

Inheritance incorruptible.
1 Peter 1:4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade–kept in heaven for you,

A kingdom.
Matthew 25:34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, `Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.

Luke 22:29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me,

A kingdom immovable.
Hebrews 12:28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,

Shining as the stars.
Daniel 12:3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.

Everlasting light.
Isaiah 60:19 The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.

Everlasting life.
Luke 18:30 will fail to receive many times as much in this age and, in the age to come, eternal life.”

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

An enduring substance.
Hebrews 10:34 You sympathised with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.

A house, eternal in the heavens.
2 Corinthians 5:1 Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

A city which hath foundations.
Hebrews 11:10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.

Entering into the joy of the Lord.
Matthew 25:21 “His master replied, `Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

with

Hebrews 12:2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Rest.
Hebrews 4:9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God;

Revelation 14:13 Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labour, for their deeds will follow them.”

Fullness of joy.
Psalms 16:11 You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

The prize of the high calling of God in Christ.
Philippians 3:14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Treasure in heaven.
Matthew 19:21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Luke 12:33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.

An eternal weight of glory.
2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

Is great.
Matthew 5:12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.

Hebrews 10:35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

In full.
2 John 1:8 Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.

Is sure.
Proverbs 11:18 The wicked man earns deceptive wages, but he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward.

Is satisfying.
Psalms 17:15 And I–in righteousness I will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.

Is inestimable.
Isaiah 64:4 Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.

with

1 Corinthians 2:9 However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” —

Saints may feel confident of.
Psalms 73:24 You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.

2 Corinthians 5:1 Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

2 Timothy 4:8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day–and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

Hope of, a cause of rejoicing.
Romans 5:2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.

Be careful not to lose.
2 John 1:8 Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.

The prospect of, should lead to.

Diligence.
2 John 1:8 Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.

Pressing forward.
Philippians 3:14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Enduring suffering for Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Hebrews 11:26 He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.

Faithfulness unto death.
Revelation 2:10 Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.

Present afflictions not to be compared with.
Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Shall be given at the second coming of Christ.
Matthew 16:27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.

Revelation 22:12 “Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.

2 Timothy 4:1 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction. 3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5 But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. 6 For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day–and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

WHEN YOU STAND BEFORE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, WILL HE KNOW YOU AS HIS FOLLOWER. JOHN 14:23?

mikehill4jesus Who are these Followers of the Devil

Sunday 23rd September 2018 mikehill4jesus “Who are these Followers of the Devil”

www.disciples-of-jesus.com

Who are these Followers of the Devil who seek to stop people finding out the truth about Jesus and so be reconciled with God?
The person who is as described by Jesus in John 14:24. ‘Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’ For they have nothing to do with the Lord Jesus Christ. They will tell you differently because they are ignorant or a liar and deceiver.

The Fall of Man

By the disobedience of Adam.
Genesis 3:6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realised they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. 8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?” 10 He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.” 11 And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?” 12 The man said, “The woman you put here with me–she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”

with

Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned–13 for before the law was given, sin was in the world. But sin is not taken into account when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who was a pattern of the one to come. 15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16 Again, the gift of God is not like the result of the one man’s sin: The judgement followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ. 18 Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.

Through temptation of the devil.
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, `You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” 2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, `You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.'” 4 “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

2 Corinthians 11:3 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

1 Timothy 2:14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.

Man in consequence of.

Made in the image of Adam.
Genesis 5:3 When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image; and he named him Seth.

with

1 Corinthians 15:48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.

Born in sin.
Job 25:4 How then can a man be righteous before God? How can one born of woman be pure?

Psalms 51:5 Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.

Isaiah 48:8 You have neither heard nor understood; from of old your ear has not been open. Well do I know how treacherous you are; you were called a rebel from birth.

John 3:6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

A child of the devil.
Matthew 13:38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one,

John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

1 John 3:8 He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. 9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. 10 This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.

A child of wrath.
Ephesians 2:3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.

Evil in heart.
Genesis 6:5 The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.

Genesis 8:21 The LORD smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.

Jeremiah 16:12 But you have behaved more wickedly than your fathers. See how each of you is following the stubbornness of his evil heart instead of obeying me.

Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.

Blinded in heart.
Ephesians 4:18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.

Corrupt and perverse in his ways.
Genesis 6:12 God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways.

Psalms 10:5 His ways are always prosperous; he is haughty and your laws are far from him; he sneers at all his enemies.

Romans 3:12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” 13 “Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit.” “The poison of vipers is on their lips.” 14 “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” 15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16 ruin and misery mark their ways, 17 and the way of peace they do not know.” 18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

Depraved in mind.
Romans 8:5 Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; 7 the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.

Ephesians 4:17 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking.

Colossians 1:21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behaviour.

Titus 1:15 To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.

Without understanding.
Psalms 14:2 The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. 3 All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.

with

Romans 3:11 there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God.

Romans 1:31 they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.

Receives not the things of God.
1 Corinthians 2:14 The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Comes short of God’s glory.
Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Defiled in conscience.
Titus 1:15 To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.

Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

Intractable.
Job 11:12 But a witless man can no more become wise than a wild donkey’s colt can be born a man.

Estranged from God.
Genesis 3:8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

Psalms 58:3 Even from birth the wicked go astray; from the womb they are wayward and speak lies.

Ephesians 4:18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.

Colossians 1:21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behaviour.

In bondage to sin.
Romans 6:19 I put this in human terms because you are weak in your natural selves. Just as you used to offer the parts of your body in slavery to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer them in slavery to righteousness leading to holiness.

Romans 7:5 For when we were controlled by the sinful nature, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in our bodies, so that we bore fruit for death.

Romans 7:23 but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members.

Galatians 5:17 For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want.

Titus 3:3 At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another.

In bondage to the devil.
2 Timothy 2:26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

Hebrews 2:14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death–that is, the devil– 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

Constant in evil.
Psalms 10:5 His ways are always prosperous; he is haughty and your laws are far from him; he sneers at all his enemies.

2 Peter 2:14 With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed–an accursed brood!

Conscious of guilt.
Genesis 3:7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realised they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. 8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?” 10 He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”

Unrighteous.
Ecclesiastes 7:20 There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins.

Romans 3:10 As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one;

Abominable.
Job 15:16 how much less man, who is vile and corrupt, who drinks up evil like water!

Psalms 14:3 All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.

Turned to his own way.
Isaiah 53:6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Loves darkness.
John 3:19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

Corrupt in speech.
Romans 3:13 “Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit.” “The poison of vipers is on their lips.” 14 “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.”

Destructive.
Romans 3:15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16 ruin and misery mark their ways,

Devoid of the fear of God.
Romans 3:18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

Totally depraved.
Genesis 6:5 The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.

Romans 7:18 I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.

Dead in sin.
Ephesians 2:1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,

Colossians 2:13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins,

All people partake of the effects of.
1 Kings 8:46 “When they sin against you–for there is no one who does not sin–and you become angry with them and give them over to the enemy, who takes them captive to his own land, far away or near;

Galatians 3:22 But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.

1 John 1:8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.

1 John 5:19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.

Punishment consequence upon.

Banishment from paradise.
Genesis 3:24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

Condemnation to labour and sorrow.
Genesis 3:16 To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” 17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, `You must not eat of it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. 18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”

Job 5:6 For hardship does not spring from the soil, nor does trouble sprout from the ground. 7 Yet man is born to trouble as surely as sparks fly upward.

Temporal death.
Genesis 3:19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”

Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned–

1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.

Eternal death.
Job 21:30 that the evil man is spared from the day of calamity, that he is delivered from the day of wrath?

Romans 5:18 Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous. 20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21 so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Cannot be remedied by any person.
Proverbs 20:9 Who can say, “I have kept my heart pure; I am clean and without sin”?

Jeremiah 2:22 Although you wash yourself with soda and use an abundance of soap, the stain of your guilt is still before me,” declares the Sovereign LORD.

Jeremiah 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.

Remedy for, provided by God.
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

The Devil and His Followers will tell you it is OK to do evil

Sunday 16th September 2018 mikehill4jesus “The Devil and His Followers will tell you it is OK to do evil”

www.disciples-of-jesus.com

Who are these Followers of the Devil
The person who is as described by Jesus in John 14:24. ‘Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’ For they have nothing to do with the Lord Jesus Christ. They will tell you differently because they are ignorant or a liar and deceiver.

The Wheat, John 14:23, and the Weeds, John 14:24, in what is called Christianity

The Lord spoke clearly about the fate of False Christians

Matthew 13:24-30 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)

The parable of the weeds

24 Jesus told them another parable: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed ears, then the weeds also appeared.

27 ‘The owner’s servants came to him and said, “Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?”

28 ‘“An enemy did this,” he replied.

‘The servants asked him, “Do you want us to go and pull them up?”

29 ‘“No,” he answered, “because while you are pulling up the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: first collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.”’

A Disciples power to overcome Satan comes not from himself, but from the Holy Spirit of God

James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (NIV)

In the New Testament the Angel Michael leads God’s armies against Satan’s forces in the Book of Revelation, where during the war in heaven he defeats Satan. In the Epistle of Jude Michael is specifically referred to as an “archangel”. Christian sanctuaries to Michael appeared in the 4th century, when he was first seen as a healing angel, and then over time as a protector and the leader of the army of God against the forces of evil.

Without those true Disciples of the Lord Jesus, John 14:23, you or your Christian Organisation will not win the Spiritual battle you face.

If you are not able to prove that you are living in union with Jesus, then you are not saved from the Devil

True Discipleship is living in Union with Jesus!

Much of the Christianity that I have experienced does not show this Union with Jesus at all.

True Discipleship is an exciting and fulfilling experience. A consciousness, where personal communication or exchange between a divine God in three persons and a created human being is the secret of the whole of it.
John 14:23 Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. (NIV bible)

Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. (NIV bible)

When you study the Holy Bible over a period of time you will see with great clarity that it describes those who are right with the Lord Jesus Christ, as having a living relationship with Him, His Father, the Holy Spirit, and each other.

Jesus is Head of the Church.
There is only one head of the Church and He is the Lord Jesus Christ.
Eph 1:22-23; Eph 4:15-16; Col 1:18.

Jesus desires union.
It was, and still is, His desire for all His Disciples to be united with Himself, His Father God, and the Holy Spirit who counsels and teaches them. It is these Disciples, world wide, who make up the true Church of Christ.
John 17:21-23.

For union with Jesus to exist, He must be in you.
Eph 3:17; Col 1:27.

And you must be in Him.
2 Cor 12:2; 1 John 5:20.

To be united with Jesus is to also be united with God.
John 14:23; John 17:21; 1 John 2:24.

For union with Jesus is of God.
1 Cor 1:30.

How is this Union Maintained?

You must have faith in Him alone.
Gal 2:20; Eph 3:17.

You must continue to abide with Him.
John 15:4-7.

His word must abide in you.
John 15:7; 1 John 2:24; 2 John 9.

You must feed on Him.
1 John 3:24.

You must obey Him.
1 John 3:24.

The Holy Spirit witnesses to your union.
1 John 3:24.

They are complete through their union.
Col 2:10.

They are exhorted to maintain their union.
John 15:4; Acts 11:23; Col 2:7.

Union is necessary to growth in grace.
Eph 4:15-16; Col 2:19.

Union is necessary to fruitfulness.
John 15:4-5.

The Beneficial Results of this Union with Jesus.

Freedom from condemnation.
Rom 8:1.

Jesus has to come first in everything

Sunday 9th September 2018 mikehill4jesus “Jesus has to come first in everything”

www.disciples-of-jesus.com

Witnessing for Jesus
John 14:23 Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.”
True Disciples of Jesus have both Him, and his Father, living in them today. It has always been like that! His loving disciples are living proof that He is alive today. That is why they are hated so much, yet always respond with love and true teaching that may help their persecutors.

This “Union” with God cannot take place when the person is as described by Jesus in John 14:24. ‘Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’ For God has nothing to do with those who refuse to love and obey His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Anyone who tells you differently, is ignorant or a liar and deceiver.

The Saving Gospel of Jesus Christ

It has to be learnt and then put into practice. The Holy Spirit can teach the Saved person who loves Jesus even though they still do evil. Perfection in behaviour takes time if the sinner truly loves Jesus. Just as it does with a child who is adopted out of a Sinful family who did not teach them what is Holy and Righteous.

The Apostle Paul taught Christians in Romans 8:1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

One of the great questions that Christless People ask, even if they call themselves Christian or Believers in Jesus, is this, “Who are You?”

They do not know who:

  • God is
  • Jesus is
  • Christians are
  • the main Characters that are described in the Holy Bible

John 1:19-28 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)

John the Baptist denies being the Messiah

19 Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. 20 He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, ‘I am not the Messiah.’

21 They asked him, ‘Then who are you? Are you Elijah?’

He said, ‘I am not.’

‘Are you the Prophet?’

He answered, ‘No.’

22 Finally they said, ‘Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?’

23 John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, ‘I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, “Make straight the way for the Lord.”’

24 Now the Pharisees who had been sent 25 questioned him, ‘Why then do you baptise if you are not the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?’

26 ‘I baptise with water,’ John replied, ‘but among you stands one you do not know. 27 He is the one who comes after me, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.’

28 This all happened at Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptising.

THESE WERE GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE AND YET DID NOT KNOW WHO JOHN THE BAPTIST WAS?????

John 8:25-27 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)

The Jewish leaders did not know who Jesus was

25 ‘Who are you?’ they asked.

‘Just what I have been telling you from the beginning,’ Jesus replied. 26 ‘I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is trustworthy, and what I have heard from him I tell the world.’

27 They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father.

CLEARLY, MANY JEWISH LEADERS DID NOT KNOW WHO JESUS WAS?????

It is the same today. People, who do not know who Jesus is, being called God’s Ordained Leaders?????

This webpage describes those people who do know and don’t have to ask, “Who are You?
