Without Jesus in us we can only do Evil towards God and Others

Promises that Encourage Us to Love Jesus and to Obey Jesus.

The promises that your unbelief and selfishness may have stopped you accepting?

The Lord Jesus promised in John 15:4 ‘Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.’

5 ‘I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.’

Humans forming their own Christian Religion, John 14:24, are forming their own Jesus and their own little Kingdoms of God called Denominations, Church, Fellowships, Faith Groups, or something similar?

BUT! The Lord Jesus’ teachings that are learnt and obeyed by those described in John 14:23, will be and are, reflected in their own true Christian experience.

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.’

Clearly then, the Christless Christians John 14:24, even if claiming to be Christian, are the “HATERS” of those whom are described in John 14:23!

John 15:18-25 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]

Christless Christians are blinded by the Devil so that they cannot, or they refuse to, see that living in the true Christians are God the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. How many will be celebrating Easter who are actually “HATERS” of God and Christ’s Disciples?
2 Corinthians 4:4 ‘The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’[2 Corinthians 4:6 Genesis 1:3] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.’

BUT NOT SO THE MEMBERS OF CHRIST’S SPIRITUAL BODY HERE ON EARTH (JOHN 14:23)

Promises, warnings, even threats, made by the Lord Jesus to the church members in Philadelphia (Based in what is now Turkey. The “churches” in this context refers to the community or local congregations of Christians living in each city, and not merely to the building or buildings in which they gathered for worship.)

‘To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:

Revelation 3:7 These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. 8 I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. 9 I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars – I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.

11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’

THE FATE OF THESE EVILDOERS IN THEIR OWN CHRISTIANITIES

The Sheep John 14:23 and the Goats John 14:24

Matthew 25:31 ‘When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

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. 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, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was ill and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

37 ‘Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you ill or in prison and go to visit you?”

40 ‘The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

41 ‘Then he will say to those on his left, “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was ill and in prison and you did not look after me.”

44 ‘They also will answer, “Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or ill or in prison, and did not help you?”

45 ‘He will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.”

46 ‘Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.’

AND WHERE TODAY DO WE SEE THESE EVILDOERS DESTINED FOR HELL UNLESS THEY START LEARNING FROM AND BE LOVING TOWARDS JESUS?

The Lord Jesus teaches us through the Holy Bible and also the Holy Spirit
Matthew 7:16 ‘By their fruit you will recognise them. Do people pick grapes from thorn-bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognise them.’

Here is a good example of a Christless Christian who was saved from going to Hell by his response to Jesus whom he was persecuting, just as they persecute Him today.

Saul’s conversion (Saul who was renamed Paul because the followers of Jesus were so afraid of him who had persecuted them)

Acts 9:1 Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest 2 and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. 3 As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. 4 He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?’

5 ‘Who are you, Lord?’ Saul asked.

‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,’ he replied. 6 ‘Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.’

SAUL WAS PERSECUTING JESUS WHO HAD, WITH HIS FATHER, COME AND MADE HIS HOME WITH THOSE WHO LOVED AND OBEYED HIM
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.

TODAY’S PERSECUTORS OF JESUS AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE THOSE THE LORD DESCRIBES ON BEHALF OF HIS FATHER
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.’

Those People described in John 14:24 “Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching.” Will NOT receive God’s Promises of a life in Heaven!

Part of my ministry is to warn them of the fact before God destroys them. Something that many don’t want to hear.

THOSE IN JOHN 14:24 WHO MAKE WAR AGAINST THE HOLY SPRIT OF GOD ARE IN GREAT DANGER OF BEING DECEIVED BY THE DEVIL AND BE DESTROYED BY GOD. THUS LOSING THEIR INHERITANCE

Your Choice
In the Holy Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ speaks of two gates that everyone has to make a decision over which one to go through. One gate is Narrow and the other is Wide. Each of these gates leads onto a road that represents your life here on earth and likewise they are the same as their entrance gate.
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.

Life or Death
If you choose to enter through the narrow gate, you will find real and abundant life. Your life will have that inextinguishable and indestructible quality that is self-existent in God and shared with those human beings he created. Us! For we are not animals. It is God’s gift to man animating him both physically and spiritually and making him an eternal being; “the absolute fullness of life…which belongs to God.”


TRUE CHRISTIAN EXPERIENCE THAT ONLY THOSE LIVING IN UNION WITH CHRIST CAN HAVE, JOHN 14:23

God Strengthens My Faith in Jesus’ Power

I am no Moses, but I had in my role as Head Student at CEF in Switzerland entered a period of fasting in order to resolve certain difficulties. One evening I wanted to get away for some quite meditation but found the dark woods surrounding the Institute a bit scary.

The following morning I was awakened by the Holy Spirit and told to go to the top of a nearby Mountain, the Belchenflue. It was 2.00 am and very dark with gusty winds, as I walked through the forest I noticed that my life-long fear of the dark had gone.

As I stood alone on the high observation platform looking at the storm clouds and wondering why I was not getting wet, the Holy Spirit told me to look up into the night sky. I saw an opening in the clouds and the stars were shining clear and bright.

Then I clearly heard a voice say, “I can do anything!” I am sure God was talking about Himself as able to do anything, not me.

It was a tremendous experience for me at a time of immense pressure. God blessed several of the students because of my going to Switzerland, and with some, the blessings are only now becoming visible to them. Please pray for the evangelism of children here in Birmingham and elsewhere.

Nothing will be achieved without the Holy Spirit, who is Jesus and his Father, living in us!

Jesus promises those in John 14:23 certain painful truths

Promises that Encourage Us to Love Jesus and to Obey Jesus.

A promise given from God the Father through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
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.’

Those People described in John 14:24 “Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching.” do not believe God’s Promises!

Hybrid Christians are those who have been saved through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but desire to carry on living in sin believing that they will be pardoned on the day of their judgement. They believe that God’s Grace will increase along with the increase of their sinning. Hence you find that some of the worst sinners call themselves Christian. How wrong they are!

Part of my ministry is to warn them of the fact before God destroys them.

Painful promises to those who love and obey Him

The world hates His disciples
A promise to those who are described in John 14:23 about how those described in John 14:24 will hate them. It’s the hatred they feel that causes them to have a strong sense of guilt, even shame.
John 15:18-25
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]

What success does Jesus promise His disciples?
The narrow and wide gates
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.”

The clue is at the end, “and only a few find it.”

Why is that? They are as God describes in John 14:24. Even some Christians in John 14:23 fail to find it and for many reasons. But this is the main one!

Concerning spiritual gifts given to the true Christians in John 14:23
Concerning spiritual gifts
1 Corinthians 12:1 Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to dumb idols. 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, ‘Jesus be cursed,’ and no one can say, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ except by the Holy Spirit.

4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b] 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

Unity and diversity in the body
12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptised by[c] one Spirit so as to form one body – whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free – and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 And so the body is not made up of one part but of many.

Spiritual Warfare in the true Christian Church made up of those described by God in John 14:23.
Unity and maturity in the body of Christ
Ephesians 4:1 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. 8 This is why it[Or God] says:

‘When he ascended on high,
he took many captives
and gave gifts to his people.’[
Psalm 68:18]

9 (What does ‘he ascended’ mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions[Or the depths of the earth]? 10 He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) 11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.

So there you have it, take care you do not hinder the Ministers that are sent by Christ, not sent by man.
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
By hindering, making war against the Holy Spirit of God you aid the enemies of God.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.

A Promise from Jesus to Christians who have stopped loving Him

16th February 2018 mikehill4jesus “A Promise from Jesus to Christians who have stopped loving Him

Linked to an mp3 audio podcast (37:16)

A promise given from God the Father through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
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.’

Promises
That Encourage Us to Love Jesus and to Obey Jesus.
Promises to those who do and those who don’t

Revelation 2:1-7
To the church in Ephesus

2 ‘To the angel[Or messenger] of the church in Ephesus write:

These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands. 2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.

4 Yet I hold this against you: you have forsaken the love you had at first. 5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. 6 But you have this in your favour: you hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

7 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.

Here we have the Lord Jesus sending a warning that includes two promises.

Notice that it is being given to His Disciples, not to Lost Souls in need of salvation. See His description of their Christian Life in verses 2-3.

YET

In verses 4-6 He personally condemns them. What is at the heart of this criticism?
4 Yet I hold this against you: you have forsaken the love you had at first.”

They had stopped loving Him!
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.

and had become?
24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching.

All their Christian practice was now worthless!
2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.

They were in danger of having Him and His Father leave them – having the Holy Spirit deserting them.

But He gives them hope with a promise.
7 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.

A promise give by a God who is perfectly loving, good-willing, and benevolent. A God who desires their salvation, a salvation that these Christians he is warning are carelessly trampling on.

CAN YOU NOT SEE THAT IN CHRISTIANITY TODAY?

Ignorance cannot be the problem for their evildoing!

They have the Holy Spirit to teach and guide them; the Holy Bible to show them what they should be doing; the Spiritual Ministers within the Body of Christ to serve them and keep them right in both their Doctrine and their Life.
Ephesians 4:11-16

11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

No! Their problem is that they stopped loving their Lord and Saviour thus causing God’s anger towards them.

Ask those of us who have been given to them in order to keep them in Christ and in His Spiritual Body. Are we received or rejected by them?

Is this command given by the Lord being kept by them?
John 13:34-35
34 ‘A new command I give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.’

No! Of course, not everybody claiming to be a Christian, is a Christian! They have never loved the Lord Jesus and experienced John 14:23. This Blog and Podcast are not for them. Why? Because they are not able to understand what I am communicating!

2 Corinthians 4:4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

Many, who profess to be Christian, do not understand the Gospel. Therefore they can’t teach it to others. Beware whom you choose to teach you!

THOSE WHO DON’T BELIEVE GOD’S PROMISES ARE IN GREAT DANGER OF BEING DECEIVED BY THE DEVIL AND DESTROYED BY GOD

Your Choice
In the Holy Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ speaks of two gates that everyone has to make a decision over which one to go through. One gate is Narrow and the other is Wide. Each of these gates leads onto a road that represents your life here on earth and likewise they are the same as their entrance gate.
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.

No Neutrality
Do you want to go to heaven when you die? Then quite clearly, God has offered you his only Son in order that you can make a thoughtful choice in this matter. He does not offer you a neutral path. You will have to make a choice, if not the narrow then the wide. You will have to bear fruit in your life, if not good, then bad.

Matthew 12:30 “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.

Mark 9:40 for whoever is not against us is for us.

Luke 11:23 “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me, scatters.

Luke 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.”

Luke 9:62 Jesus replied, “No one who puts his hand to the plough and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”

Matthew 4:10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'”

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.

Mark 16:20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.

Matthew 7:21 “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. 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 perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.

Life or Death
If you choose to enter through the narrow gate, you will find real and abundant life. Your life will have that inextinguishable and indestructible quality that is self-existent in God and shared with those human beings he created. Us! For we are not animals. It is God’s gift to man animating him both physically and spiritually and making him an eternal being; “the absolute fullness of life…which belongs to God.”


In each of the future Blogs and Podcasts I will be looking at a different group of promises.

Unbelief Selfishness and New Testament Warnings

10th February 2018 mikehill4jesus “Unbelief Selfishness and New Testament Warnings

Linked to an mp3 audio podcast (24.30)

Promises that Encourage Us to Love Jesus and to Obey Jesus.

A promise given from God the Father through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
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.’

Those People described in John 14:24 “Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching.” do not believe God’s Promises!

Hybrid Christians are those who have been saved through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but desire to carry on living in sin believing that they will be pardoned on the day of their judgement. They believe that God’s Grace will increase along with the increase of their sinning. Hence you find that some of the worst sinners call themselves Christian. How wrong they are! Part of my ministry is to warn them of the fact.

Promises
That Encourage Us to Love Jesus and to Obey Jesus.
New Testament Warnings

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

2 Timothy 3:12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,

Hebrews 10:26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,

James 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.

James 4:2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.

James 4:3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

2 Peter 1:5-9 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is short-sighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

2 Peter 2:20 If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning.

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

1 John 1:10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

1 John 2:11 But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.

1 John 2:15 On not loving the world 15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.

1 John 2:22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist – denying the Father and the Son.

2 John 9 Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.

Revelation 13:8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast – all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.

Revelation 14:9-11 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: ‘If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, 10 they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulphur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.’

Revelation 20:15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practise magic arts, the idolaters and all liars – they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulphur. This is the second death.’ All of God’s promises are given for a purpose – to free you from your sin.

Those people described by Jesus in John 14:24Anyone who does not love me [that is Jesus] will not obey my [His] teaching.”  are in great personal danger. For they are still living in sin while claiming to be Christian.

THOSE WHO DON’T BELIEVE GOD’S PROMISES ARE IN GREAT DANGER OF BEING DECEIVED BY THE DEVIL

2 Corinthians 4:4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

Many, who profess to be Christian, do not understand the Gospel. Therefore they can’t teach it to others. Beware whom you choose to teach you!

In each of the future Blogs and Podcasts I will be looking at a different group of promises.

Unconditional New Testament Promises

Those People described in John 14:23 ‘Anyone who loves me [Jesus] will obey my [His] teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.’ know these promises can be trusted.

Matthew 11:30 ‘For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.’

Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’

Matthew 28:16-20 The great commission

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’

Acts 10:34 Then Peter began to speak: ‘I now realise how true it is that God does not show favouritism’

Romans 14:12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

2 Corinthians 7:10

Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.

Colossians 3:11 Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.

2 Timothy 2:13 if we are faithless,
    he remains faithful,
    for he cannot disown himself.

2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: ‘The Lord knows those who are his,’ and, ‘Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.’

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and for ever.

James 1:13 When tempted, no one should say, ‘God is tempting me.’ For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;

James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

1 Peter 3:22 who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand – with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

Revelation 1:7 ‘Look, he is coming with the clouds,’[Daniel 7:13]
    and ‘every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him’;
    and all peoples on earth ‘will mourn because of him.’[Zech. 12:10]
So shall it be! Amen.

Revelation 17:14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings – and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.’

Revelation 20:2 He seized the dragon, that ancient snake, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.

Revelation 20:10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulphur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Revelation 21:27 Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Revelation 22:3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.

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.

All of God’s promises are given for a purpose – to free you from your sin. Those people described by Jesus in John 14:24Anyone who does not love me [that is Jesus] will not obey my [His] teaching.”  are in great personal danger. For they are still living in sin while claiming to be Christian.

The Importance of Believing Gods Promises

24th January 2018 mikehill4jesus “The Importance of Believing God’s Promises”
Linked to an mp3 audio podcast (23.37)

Today I am starting to discuss the subject of God’s Promises in my Blogs and Podcasts

A promise given from God the Father through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
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.’

What happens when God’s Promises are not believed
Matthew 13:53-58

A prophet without honour

53 When Jesus had finished these parables, he moved on from there. 54 Coming to his home town, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. ‘Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?’ they asked. 55 ‘Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56 Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?’ 57 And they took offence at him.

But Jesus said to them, ‘A prophet is not without honour except in his own town and in his own home.’

58 And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.

My Christian experience has proven that this is the same today in many places where people profess to be Christian. They don’t believe God’s promises that encourage us to love Jesus and to obey His Teachings.

Yes, it cost a person to love and obey the Lord Jesus. But it’s a price worth paying
Luke 18:28 Peter said to him, ‘We have left all we had to follow you!’

29 ‘Truly I tell you,’ Jesus said to them, ‘no one who has left home or wife or brothers or sisters or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God 30 will fail to receive many times as much in this age, and in the age to come eternal life.’

The Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 4

Present weakness and resurrection life

4 Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. 2 Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’[Gen. 1:3] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.

13 It is written: ‘I believed; therefore I have spoken.’[Psalm 116:10] Since we have that same spirit of[Or Spirit-given] faith, we also believe and therefore speak, 14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. 15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.

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, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Those Jesus describes in John 14:24 ‘Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching.’ Cannot be as Paul describes in the above verses in 2 Corinthians, for they have not trusted in the promises of God! Though many call themselves “Christian” they are only self-deceived.

All of God’s promises are given for a purpose – to free you from your sin.

THOSE WHO DON’T BELIEVE GOD’S PROMISES ARE IN GREAT DANGER OF BEING DECEIVED BY THE DEVIL

In each of the future Blogs and Podcasts I will be looking at a different group of promises.

What is the true Church part 4 Jesus Saving Sinners

19th January 2018 mikehill4jesus “What is the true Church part 4 – Jesus Saving Sinners”
Linked to an mp3 audio podcast (36.16)

A series of Blogs about the doctrine of the true Church.

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 [True Christians]. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching [These people operate the many variations of Churchianity]. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’

Jesus Saving Sinners
Matthew 1:21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,[a] because he will save his people from their sins.’
Footnotes:
[a] Matthew 1:21 Jesus is the Greek form of Joshua, which means the Lord saves.

I have been witnessing for my Lord and Saviour since 1977 – 40 long years – and must have reached millions of people with my testimony and teaching about “Living with God and Defeating the Devil”. YET, out of the estimated 2.2 billion professing Christians, I do not have a single one as a social friend or supporter. This despite the command of the Lord Jesus to those who claim to belong to Him through His Gospel.
John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Why is this? Well, either they are not in love with Him, so refuse to obey Him, or they have been misled by the Christless Christians described in John 14:24.


This a part of Finney’s Sermon, hence the old English

The Oberlin Evangelist.
April 25, 1849
JESUS, A SAVIOR FROM SINNING
Sermon by Prof. C.G. Finney
Reported by The Editor.

“Thou shalt call His name Jesus, for He shall save his people from their sins.” –Matt. 1:21.

In discussing fundamentally the subject presented in the text, it is pertinent to remark,

I. That salvation from sin is the great want of humanity. On this point there can be no mistake. Whatever else may be controverted or denied, this cannot be. Universal observation combines with universal consciousness to attest that this is a stubborn fact–salvation from sin is the great want of our sinning race. Nothing is more true than that as a race, men are sinners. All men know each other to be sinners, and of course what all know to be true of each one, and what each one knows to be true of all, must be a matter of universal knowledge.

I said, whatever else is true or is not true, this is true;–that men need salvation from sin. The reason of this need is that they are sinners, and as sinners, they are utterly lost to happiness, unless they can be saved from their sins. No man can be honest and yet deny this. This one truth is forever settled and known by all men.

By being saved from sin I do not mean pardon; for every man knows that pardon, without salvation from sinning, would not really save; for if a man were pardoned, but were still given up to the working of his sinful passions and selfish spirit, he would make for himself a hell even in heaven; nay more, it is undoubtedly true that heaven would be the severest form of hell to the unsaved in heart. There can be no heaven without holiness, and the change from sin to such holiness as fits for heaven is exceedingly great. A world of selfish beings thrown together anywhere would be unutterably miserable.

REMARKS.

1. Many have hope who are not really saved in any proper sense of the word. They are neither saved from sin now, nor will they be saved from hell hereafter.

2. No one has reason to hope for heaven any further than he is really saved from sin.

3. They who possess the religion of the gospel and yet are not sanctified, virtually bring up an evil report against the gospel. They say,–“I am a Christian, but I know that I am not saved from sin. I embrace a gospel which professes to save from sin, you see in me how much its professions are worth.” What must be the influence of such a testimony?

4. When a Christian commits himself to Jesus to save from sin, it is well for him to use this argument in prayer; “Lord, it will dishonor Thee if Thou dost not save me from all sin. I have trusted in Thee; I do now take hold of thy promises; let them be fulfilled in my case, and let all men seeing what thy grace has done for me, know thy salvation.”

5. Some seem not to have in view Christ’s honor, but their own. They think they shall disgrace themselves if they do not overcome temptation; but they do not feel that the greatest evil of all is that they will thus dishonor Christ.

6. If any man will believe, he shall see no other difficulty. No obstacle can possibly be in his way to shut off the power of the gospel from his soul, when once he has embraced the sinner’s Savior by a living faith.

7. The great difficulty now is for the Savior to persuade men to believe, and to cast themselves on him by a perpetual self-renunciation and a perpetual dependence. Let me ask you, my hearers, how many of you can testify that this is the case with yourselves:–that in your own individual case, Jesus has to your certain knowledge been laboring to present himself before you in such inviting forms as should inspire faith in Himself; but he has labored almost, or perhaps altogether in vain.

8. Half-way believers are the greatest stumbling-blocks in religion. They profess to embrace Christ, and to be religious, and yet fail of having grace enough to overcome sin. O! if they would only embrace Jesus, so as to be full of his Spirit, how greatly would they honor their Lord! As it is, how earthly-minded, sensual, and devilish do they become! No wonder they are ashamed to say that Jesus is a Savior from sin. How can they bear such testimony without reading themselves out of the pale of the heirs of heaven?


This teaching is clear, yet we humans, even when claiming to be a Christian, a follower of Christ, still desire to live in Sin!

THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIAN, BUT REFUSE TO STOP SINNING, NEVER LIVE AS DESCRIBED BY GOD IN JOHN 14:23, BUT CONTINUE AS HE DESCRIBES IN JOHN 14:24
