Christian Resource Exhibition at the NEC Birmingham 08/10/2015
Witnessing for the Lord Jesus Christ in a very warm Exhibition hall for 3 hours leaves you looking a bit like I am in the photo taken as I was leaving.
At 71 years of age I did wonder why the Holy Spirit had led me to wear a red T-shirt with a bright yellow logo containing the words, “MikeHill4Jesus” Google it!, with a Smiley Face doing the thumbs up.
I was still thinking this as I left home to catch the train from Bournville Station. On approaching the Station I saw and spoke to a couple of Men promoting a Religion. The Sun shone down as I said hello and opened my coat to show them my T-shirt and informing them I was going to the CRE Exhibition. It certainly caught their attention. So that was the first answer as to why I should wear it.
In the Exhibition I found that the T-shirt was a very useful communicating tool. Firstly, I could gauge the Christians reaction on seeing it. Secondly, it gave an introduction as to what my ministry was. Thirdly, I could then share testimony as to why Mike Hill (Me) was for the Lord Jesus Christ.
Each Contact I made was unique to the person. Christians responses were not confined to any one type of Christian. Depending on their reaction I knew how to-the-point I should be with them. I must say this, it is the first time attending a CRE Exhibition that I was receiving such warm and honest discussions. I made them promise to look up “MikeHill4Jesus” on Google Search. Of course some had their smartphones and did that while we chatted or as I moved on to the next Stand.
The great advantage I have in my Ministry is that I have had my Lord Jesus and his Father making their home with me [John 14:23] for 38 years. Therefore, I talk about them as if it was, and it is, a relationship that I am completely immersed in. In other words, though I use the Holy Bible in my witnessing, it’s my behaviour (body language and honesty) that makes an impact on the Christian.
Two of the Stands were manned by Christians who wanted my DVD “Living with God and Defeating Satan”. Please note that this a large file and will be a problem to some devices. However, this is a short Introduction video and you can find Living with God and Defeating Satan as separate videos on youtube. Please watch them in this order. God bless you.
Now this is interesting! After a time of witnessing I was getting very warm and I discovered that there was a Cloakroom provided just outside the Exhibition Hall. While handing in my coat, I had to empty the pockets, I got into conversation with the two young Attendants about my I am for my Lord. One young lady wanted to know so much and asked some very good question as well as sharing her own thoughts about Jesus and Christianity. (The T-shirt working it’s magic again?) On collecting my coat as I left to go home, this young lady continued her questioning and I left her with the instructions, “Read the Lord’s teachings in Johns Gospel and let the Holy Spirit of God help you.” I am confident that the Holy Spirit prepares people for meeting me. When he is involved, witnessing is easy.
As I write below, Christians are a very mixed bag when it comes to their beliefs. For many, their beliefs are limited by the Bible Knowledge they have, or, the teachings of their Church. Of course I meet, as with the young lady in the Cloakroom, people for whom the Lord Jesus Christ is a complete mystery.
Therefore, when they meet a person such as I, who’s faith is based on experience of God in my life, not just my belief in the Holy Bible. It is difficult for them, especially when I talk about my Testimony and the miracles and signs and wonders I experience. I put pressure on their own personal belief in the Lord Jesus.
Yesterday was a very special day in my Ministry and I truly thanks my Lord for being with me and blessing so many people. I also thank the CRE Organisers for allowing me, without me asking them for permission, to witness for my Lord. Though I did pre-book my ticket giving them full details of who I was.
So what is a Christian? It’s not an easy question to answer.
To my mind, the term “Christian” can be misleading. In all my years, 70, I have not met a Christian who has described to me their relationship with the Lord Jesus and his Father as described by the Lord in John 14:23. And I have been trying very hard to let them do just that.
When I first started to read about my Lord Jesus in the Gospels of the Holy Bible I was startled to see written in its pages that he had so many enemies from among those people who were supposed to be His Father’s Leaders.
I noticed that it had been the same in the Old Testament, where the Prophets opponents were often Jewish leaders.
Then when the Apostles started their ministry after Pentecost, the same thing happened again, many who were supposed to be leaders in the church of Christ were actually bitter enemies of those personally chosen by Jesus to build it up in the faith. In a very short time, all sorts of heresies and schisms broke out and Christians were persecuted from place to place. The glory had soon gone from the organised church because of false doctrine, Luke warmness and worldliness. Spiritual leadership was replaced my human organisation.
Today it is just the same and I can truthfully testify to you that those who are and have been my most ardent enemies have been Christian Church Leaders. To this date, 17/03/2015, I have no loving support (friendship) from Christians; not one. I am strongly of the opinion that Christians are actually against the Lord Jesus Christ! If they were not, then surely, they would be helping me?
So there it is, People claiming to be “Christians” but acting against the will of the Lord Jesus, and with no spoken or written testimony of Christ Jesus knowing them.
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. 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”
John 14:23-24, is the key to this question of who is a Christian. True followers love and obey Jesus, false followers do not. The term, Christian, does not come into it at all as it is just a religious title.
True Followers are a people who are different in their character than the unsaved that they want to see saved. A people who love Jesus; who do not carry on sinning; who show evidence of the Holy Spirit’s power in their life; a people who do not brazenly go against the Holy Spirit as he seeks to do good. False Followers are enemies of the Lord Jesus, and of his true ministers!
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.
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 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.'”
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.”
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.”
Danger, False Teachers
Be on your guard for many false teachers are about. Not only is the correct gate that leads to eternal life hard to find there are also people who are dedicated to tricking you into entering the wrong gate that leads to destruction. Danger! Beware, Jesus says, of false prophets who will be out to deceive you onto the road to destruction. Religionists who preach dogma, a religious belief or opinion held to be absolute truth; a point of view or alleged authoritative tenet put forth as dogma without adequate grounds. They pray for revival, a supernatural visitation from God which awakens hearts and produces joyful obedience, while at the same time rejecting the truth that Jesus and his Father are already here in Christ’s disciples. Avoid them, for they are dangerously stupid!
Matthew 7:15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognise them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, 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.
These false teachers are living in deliberate defiance of the moral law for personal gain, without regard to the pain or suffering brought to others by it. Law is a rule established by authority. The letter of the law is dealing with the outward keeping of the law. The letter of the law is the literal meaning without regard to the motive or principles behind the law. Moral law is a universal unchanging rule proceeding from divine intelligence. To which moral beings ought to conform. That will protect the basic rights of all and bring happiness to all. A rule for action with certain resultant consequences for obedience or disobedience. A moral law without sanctions is not a law, but advice. The law is a fence to show not only ownership, but also protection.
Corrupters of Others
You will see their selfish greed that makes them not only content to perish in their own corruption, but are not content unless they are corrupting others as well. Get Smart! You will know them! As your relationship with these prophets develop you will come to a fuller, clearer, and more thorough knowledge of their fruit. It will be either good or bad! You will see they are inexorable, unyielding, inflexible, relentless, Not to be persuaded or moved by entreaty or prayer. They are licentious hostile or offensive to accepted standards of conduct; marked by the absence of legal or moral restraints. Indeed, I have found that the toughest mission field in the entire world is that place where unsaved people call Jesus, Lord. They are truly children of the devil, of whom I have met many.
It is totally impossible for good people to be bad or bad people to be good. Yes, good people can do bad things, and bad people do good things. However, they are still inherently good or bad people. Therefore, you will know them, for they will give you a taste of what they are like.
They will be good willing, both good in action and appearance. They will be inwardly good; of a good constitution or nature; hence, that which produces benefit and genuinely good effects and results; has its focus on the inward character and thus carries the idea of morally or inherently virtuous or brave; worthy of admiration and respect. They will be good in appearance; beautiful; aesthetically satisfying and pleasing; that which evokes admiration and a sense of the lovely and beautiful; praiseworthy; good as having the perceived value and out ward impression of charm and attractiveness; useful; excellent in its characteristics therefore well adapted to its ends.
They will be bad willing, both bad in action and appearance, though camouflaged. They will be rotten; corrupt; of poor quality; used of over-ripe fruit that is useless and to be discarded, no longer fit for use. For all their outward garb, they will show a deliberate defiance of the moral law for personal gain. Without a regard to the pain or suffering brought to others by it. Selfish greed often with malevolent and criminal intentions. The active outworking of evil nature and purpose which is not always outwardly expressed. They are not only content to perish in their own corruption, but are not content unless they are corrupting others as well. Just like their leader, Satan.
Oh how blind these sinners are that they are surprised when the Lord Jesus rejects them on the day of judgement. How terrified they are going to be when the shocking truth bites home. All that religion that they did in the name of Jesus was futile regarding their eternal salvation. Be warned!
They are Everywhere
You will find many like these in the church today who have the concept that faith alone, without obedience to moral law, is all that is necessary for salvation. (Considered by sound theologians to be erroneous doctrine based upon a misconception of what salvation really is.) They openly state we cannot criticise others who sin because we humans, even Christians, cannot fulfil our moral obligations and obey God. Others deny original sin. They assert that each individual has freedom of the will to choose not to sin (what man ought to do, he can do) and the avowal that each person’s freedom of the will includes the unassisted initiating power to move toward salvation and to appropriate the divine grace necessary thereto. They believe in the total world-wide ultimate salvation of each and every individual, and deny there is a hell.
They are unregenerate, not renewed in heart but remaining or being at enmity with God, and living out a life based on loony religion. You will also find others in your community who once saved fell away or abandoned their beliefs; renouncing their faith after a backsliding of heart; a final and unchanging return to a selfish ultimate intention of life.
Please Listen to Jesus
In order to avoid their fate you must learn that only the Lord Jesus Christ can teach you the way to salvation, proper discipleship living, and an eternal life with God in heaven. Ardent disciples like me can help you, but only by turning you to His teachings and companionship. God the Holy Spirit is powerful enough to do all that is necessary to bring you through to salvation. All you have to do is ask the Lord Jesus for help and await the wonderful experience of having God enter you.
Matthew 7:24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
Please believe me when I say, “You can trust the Lord Jesus Christ!”
Matthew 7:28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
A Mighty Saviour
The people alive in His day had an advantage over us in that they could see many of the wonders he did before their very eyes. This what the apostle John, a very close friend of the Lord Jesus, had to say at the end of his gospel in the Holy Bible.
John 21:24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.
25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
Grabbing the Nettle
In order to be saved you must certainly be won away from yourself. Realising this may cause you a great deal of pain but it just has to be. Many people remain lost for failure to be honest with themselves.
You are a free moral agent of course. A creature created by God and capable of right and wrong action, being endowed with the ability to perceive what is right and proper conduct in your various relations with the power of free choice and thus able to be governed by truth addressed to your intelligence. That is why God has given you a free choice regarding which gate to enter. You have not been created an animal; you have a spirit and a soul.
Moral is having to do with right and wrong; relating to, dealing with, or capable of making the distinction between right and wrong actions of conduct; pertaining to the discernment of good and evil. The concept of absolute morality presupposes an absolute set of standards as to what is right and what is wrong. Without these absolute standards morality becomes meaningless, or can be made to mean whatever anyone wants it to mean.
Moral character is a continuing state of activity or conduct that takes place in the experiences and consciousness’ of moral beings. Moral character is moral action or personal action. It is not something back of the will causing action, but is the action of the will itself. It is the thoughts we think, the attitudes we have, the things we say, the actions that we take that constitute our moral character. Moral character must be a voluntary choice of the person involved, as distinguished from a constitutional trait or natural attribute. If moral character is something fixed or something that controls the will in one direction or in another, then virtue or blame disappears, the law of cause and effect takes over, and moral action ceases to exist.
A Depraved Rebel
Until you are saved you are in rebellion against God, wholly alienated, intensely prejudiced, and committed against Him. You are committed to self-gratification as the end of your being.
This committed state is moral depravity, the fountain of sin within you, from which flow by a natural law all your sinful ways. That state of constitution and faculties by which it is easier to sin or gratify ourselves than to do what our enlightened mind declares to be right and proper. Depravity is a strong tendency toward gratifying certain kinds of indulgences which our constitution and environment has fostered. Our depravity at a given instant must be the sum total of that within us which resists and becomes an impediment to right moral action. The great mass of this depravity is what we have developed for ourselves by persistent and ever-deepening gratification. These aggravated tendencies to self-indulgence have become a part of us and are not to be thought of as a separate entity lodging somewhere in our personalities. Our depravity has permeated our entire personality. No part of us is unaffected.
Physical depravity is our weakened and unbalanced physical condition constitutes what we call physical depravity and contributes to the development of moral depravity. Physical depravity is not to be thought of as a loss of the ability of free will, or as a moral depravity, which must always be voluntary, but as introducing a bias or tendency toward self-gratification-an obstacle which must be overcome by right moral action.
Total depravity is the theological theory that man is born with a sinful nature and is spiritually dead. This is Augustinian philosophy and Calvinistic theology. Depravity means “very crooked.” The Biblical concept is that man is born with a physical depravity that influences but does not cause moral depravity. Man is not born sinful or virtuous, but innocent and acquires his sinful nature by his choices.
This committed voluntary state is your “wicked heart.” The heart is the seat of the affections, desires, and appetites. That which influences the will in making moral choices which in turn directs the mind to institute the chosen action. The ability to choose. The ability to know what to choose. The control centre of one’s life. The motivating purpose of one’s life. This it is that needs a radical change.
God is Perfectly Right
When the going gets tough, it is to easy for us all to blame God. God is infinitely benevolent, good willing; a good act; disposition to do good; a disposition to promote the happiness and well-being of others from a purely unselfish motive.
Whereas, unconverted sinners are supremely selfish, regarding one’s own interests above the welfare and happiness of others, so that they are radically opposed to God. Your committal to the gratification of your appetites and propensities, living supremely to gratify the five senses (worldly), is known in Bible language as the “carnal mind”; or, “the minding of the flesh,” which is enmity against God.
The Holy Bible speaks of FLESH: human or bodily attributes not spiritual, but physical. Sensibilities are the five senses. (Not inherently evil in themselves.) Many people fall into the error of regarding flesh as something wicked where in fact it is the overindulgence that is a problem.
This enmity is voluntary, and must be overcome, if at all, by the Word of God, made effectual by the teaching of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus the Perfect Teacher
Let us remember the manner in which Christ concludes His memorable Sermon on the Mount. After spreading out those awfully searching truths before His hearers, and demanding that they should be perfect, as your Father in heaven was perfect, He concludes by assuring them that no one could be saved who did not receive and obey His teachings. Instead of attempting to please our people in your sins, we should continually endeavour to hunt and persuade them out of your sins. Brethren, let us do it, as we would not have our skirts defiled with your blood. If we pursue this course and consistently preach with unction and power, and abide in the fullness of the doctrine of Christ, we may joyfully expect to save them and ourselves that hear us.
Listen to Jesus
What is the key to their destruction? They could not deceive him as they had those whom they harmed. Though they called him by his proper title they did not do the will of God. Despite their great works in his name that must have generated a great deal of praise from those they deceived, he rejected them for their lawlessness. He did not know them.
No Personal Relationship
Jesus had not been in union with them. He had known them through experience; or perceived them through the senses; no subjective knowledge; a knowing that comes from an active relation between himself and them; there had been no first-hand or personal interaction; no personal acquaintance or some relationship of intimacy or connection. The Lord Jesus knew of them but no more than that.
Wise indeed are they whom hear his words written so clearly for us in the Holy Bible. They are people characterised by a practical wisdom that sees what must be done and what must not be done in any given situation; with quick and correct perceptions, hence discreet, circumspect; as of one who is in practical touch with life and reality. During the tough times that come to us all they stood firm in Him their protector.
But not so the false ones rejected by the Son of God at the time of judgement. If they were churchgoers they would have had a Holy Bible therefore they would have read these words in Matthew’s Gospel. Yet they had not put them into practice else they would have been right with him because he would have known them. What fools they had been to reject the words of Christ. They lacked the maturity to be discriminating; infantile; mentally or psychologically immature; easily deceived. People with a low development or deficient use of reasoning abilities.
My daily prayer to my Father God is made in my Lord Jesus’ Powerful Name.
It is that the Holy Spirit of God will do whatever He can do to turn all Christians to the Lord Jesus Christ in true repentance for their sins. The sins that come from disobedience to the teaching of Him who died that they, Christians with no love for Him, may have a chance to be saved from Hell and allowed into Heaven by His Authority given to him by his Father.
It was not long ago that, in the company of my Guardian Angels, I preached the Gospel of Jesus to the Devil that he may be saved. It matters not if he will or wont. The important thing is that at least one Disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ made an effort to save him, he the Father of all Liars and teachers of the Antichrists that plot their evil in this world.
The Lord Jesus, though he is here in the Spirit, is coming back in person. The signs are clear that the time when His Father sends him to end evil and bring in a new world without sin, will be sooner than later. His Return
Therefore, it is clear to me in the Spirit, that everybody in the world should have a chance to get right with Him, the Lord of Heaven and Earth. That the Devil’s evil schemes will be revealed and the lost souls, even if Christian, will have their eyes open that they will at last see the light of Christ shining into their darkness.
1 John 2:18-29 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)
Warnings against denying the Son – The Lord Jesus Christ
18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. [and you know all things] 21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. 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. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
24 As for you, see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is what he promised us – eternal life.
26 I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. 27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit – just as it has taught you, remain in him.
God’s children and sin
The Lord Jesus long ago gave us a message that very few people will find the gate to Heaven. The aim of every human being should be to find the Narrow Gate to Salvation. A Gate that is hard to find.
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.”
He also gave us a message that many who are all ready saved, will desert him because of the wickedness in the world increasing.
Mat 24:3-9 (NIV) As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumours of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.”
Mat 24:10-14 (NIV) “At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase in wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”
He gave a message through his Apostle John that described the final battle between good and evil. A war that the Devil and his aids will lose!
Revelation 22:12-16,20 (NIV) “Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the Bright Morning Star.” …”He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen, Come, Lord Jesus.
Still, I know my Father God and I know it is not his will that anyone in his creation will be lost. Therefore, in his wonderfully loving way, he desires that the warning for the lost souls to turn to his Son the Lord Jesus Christ be given out now.
2 Thessalonians 2:5,9-12,15 (NIV) Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness… So then brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.
Examine your heart and beg the Holy Spirit of God to show you where you are wrong, even if that means for you to be rebuked and disciplined for your own good. It will be a painful time for you as the Holy Spirit reveals to you how hateful you are to the Lord Jesus Christ. But persevere in seeing the truth about yourself as the rewards will be eternal as you live in Heaven with God. Don’t do this and your soul will remain lost as you enter Hell damnation.
The first step to being right with the Father is to love and obey his Son. To continue to disobey His Son’s teachings simply show that you do not love him and deserve the punishment given to all who hate him on their day of Judgement. Bend your knee before the Lord Jesus, learn his teachings, repent of those you find you have disobeyed. Then wait on the Lord to show you the forgiveness that comes from his Gospel. Then you will be united with God through the power of his Holy Spirit.
The lost souls in this world cannot be like Children of God. Therefore my Prayer is for them to be reconciled with God through the Lord Jesus Christ and be as the disciples described by the Apostle Peter.
2 Pet 3:10-14 ‘In view of the fact that all these things are to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be? Surely men of good and holy character, who live expecting and working for the coming of the day of God. This day will mean that the heavens will disintegrate in fire and the burning elements will melt, but our hopes are set on new heavens and a new earth which he has promised us, in which justice will make its home. Because, my dear friends, you have a hope like this before you, I urge you to make certain that the day will find you at peace with God, flawless and blameless in his sight.’
My prayer is that you will, as an individual, give your life to the Lord Jesus now, and let the Holy Spirit of God work in your life until you are truly Born Again into the Fathers Family.
