Christian failure is caused by many things. Part 1.
Not fully understanding who the Lord Jesus Christ is. Without the Holy Spirit a Lost Soul will never understand.
Matthew 10:28 ‘Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.’ (NIV Bible)
Revelation 1:8-20 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)
8 ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, ‘who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.’
John’s vision of Christ
9 I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, 11 which said: ‘Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.’
12 I turned round to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, [Daniel 7:13] dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash round his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: ‘Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
19 ‘Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later. 20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: the seven stars are the angels [Or messengers] of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
To All Christian Minister. “Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” 1 Timothy 4:16
False Christians contradict this teach of the Apostle Paul. In that they live a sinful, not holy, life and disobey the doctrines that are in the Holy Bible and that are further taught by the Holy Spirit of God.
This failure by False Christians is like a spreading cancer in the Church. It’s attractive to new Church Members because it allows them to remain ‘Selfish’. Christian in name only and a threat to True Christians whom they do not love, because they are unable to love as the Holy Spirit would enable them to love.
Galatians 5:22-23 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)
22 ‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.’
You have to ask the Holy Spirit of God to help you learn about the Lord Jesus Christ
The Gospel of Jesus – Fail to understand what it is and you will not be saved from Hell
Be just like Jesus – God the Father demands it.
It’s one thing to call yourself a true Christian, but is that enough?
The Lord Jesus Christ is God the Son
A Disciples power to overcome Satan comes not from himself, but from the Holy Spirit of God
The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back in person.
