Why must a Christian be made to Testify about the Holy Spirit?

1st September 2016 (9.46) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio

The answer is…
(I do hope Christian Leaders are reading this!)

The Devil does many evil things to stop Lost Souls trusting 100% in the Lord Jesus. AND he uses unconverted Professing Christians to do his work:

He perverts the scriptures.
Matthew 4:6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “`He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'”

with

Psalms 91:11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

He opposes God’s work.
Zechariah 3:1 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him.

1 Thessalonians 2:18 For we wanted to come to you–certainly I, Paul, did, again and again–but Satan stopped us.

He hinders the gospel.
Matthew 13:19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path.

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 of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

He works lying wonders.
2 Thessalonians 2:9 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,

Revelation 16:14 They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.

He assumes the work of an angel of light.
2 Corinthians 11:14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

The wicked:

Are the children 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,

Acts 13:10 “You are a child of the devil and an enemy of everything that is right! You are full of all kinds of deceit and trickery. Will you never stop perverting the right ways of the Lord?

1 John 3:10 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.

Turn aside after salvation.
1 Timothy 5:15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan.

Do the lusts of the devil.
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.

Possessed by the devil.
Luke 22:3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.

Acts 5:3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land?

Ephesians 2:2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.

Blinded 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 of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.


The Apostle Paul gave another younger and more recently converted into the Body of Christ, Apostle, some important advice.
1 Timothy 4:16 ‘Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.’

Salvation that results in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit should cause the person to watch their life and doctrine closely. Therefore, when searching for others, you should find them doing likewise.

The unconverted professing Christians can’t do this as they do not have the Holy Spirit of God to empower them in their lives and witness for the Lord Jesus.
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. [the Converted] 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. [the Unconverted] These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’

The Lord promised that the number of Saved People would be small and the number of Unsaved People would be large.

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.’

So, what are these Save People like?
A person who is a lover of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is truly born-again of the spirit of God and has the Lord Jesus and his Father making their home with them. I spoke earlier about watching your life and doctrine closely for they must match.
Here is how they are described in the Holy Bible

So, what are these unconverted Professing Christians like?
If you are ignorant of Doctrine, so cannot understand the Gospel of Jesus, then your life will reflect that.
Here is how they are described in the Holy Bible

It is the Devil that causes the unconverted Professing Christians to believe that a person can have one foot on the Broad Road and one foot on the Narrow Road. But then he always tells lies for he can do nothing else as there is no TRUTH in him.

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST KNOWS IF YOU ARE ONE OF HIS DISCIPLES OR A WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING

The Gospel of Jesus that many Christian Leaders need to use.

Bad Preaching so as to convert no one

Good Preaching so as to win Souls

The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit without which we are just playing at Christianity.
