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)

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.

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.
