15 Ways SOME Churches Deceive You

I want to tell you 15 ways SOME CHURCHES DECEIVE YOU, because I have seen the churches deception in a lot of the Christian world leading many professing believers astray to many false doctrines causing them to not be able to be with Jesus and his wedding feast and enter the kingdom, because they wilfully and blindly follow the church. Some churches say 1: that we always sin but the blood of Jesus covers us. Jesus’ blood does NOT atone for us when we always sin. He calls us to repent and God calls us to live a HOLY LIFE as is written in 1 Thess chapter 4. God commands everyone to repent, and anyone who rejects the command to live a holy life, is not rejecting human teachings, but God’s. Jesus Christ will free us from sinning everyday if we repent and we turn to him, then we don’t have to sin all the time and try and claim that Jesus covers for our lack of self-control which is a fruit of the Spirit. Rather we add to our faith 2 Peter 1, where Peter writes to add to your faith daily in increasing measure, self-control, godliness, purity, righteousness, endurance, perseverance, and love.

Deception #2. They say you must tithe to the church to obey God. Some also say if you don’t you will end up in hell. There is NO COMMAND given by Jesus nor by his disciples to tithe to the church. NO COMMANDMENT. There is NO obligated to the gentiles nor the jewish believers of Christ to go under the law of Moses and tithe 10% of their produce or income to a church or body. You do not need to tithe to a church to save yourself. That is going under the law. The command that Jesus gave was to obey him by living a holy life. His command was to give without anyone knowing about it. To give without your left hand knowing what your right hand is doing. To give to the widow and orphan in their distress. Give to the needy believers, those who need it. That is true giving in the sight of God from your heart. Don’t give to the church, they are deceivers, and we don’t want to support deception.

Deception #3. They say you need accountability to people in church, and you must not forsake the assembly of the church, so you need to attend church. Dear friends you don’t need to go to their building and gatherings, because we are warned by the disciples to have NOTHING TO DO with those who profess the faith, yet they walk in sin or another gospel. These churches are walking in sin and in another gospel so we are to have NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM. Fellowshipping with them, is going to cause you to be displeasing to the Lord. Don’t even eat with them, it is written. We need fellowship with Jesus Christ first. We need to KNOW HIM first. Then when we know him and abide with him, then we can assemble with other people whom we make disciples. Then we fellowship with THEM. Then we are not forsaking the assembly, because the assembly isn’t church rather disciples of Christ.

Deception #4. They won’t baptise new believers as commanded but make you sit a corse, or put it off, or say the water is nothing special. We all know that when the early believers believed in Jesus Christ, they were IMMEDIATELY baptised. There was no tarry and wait. There was no pep talk and corse to take, rather you were baptised right away because that is part of the gospel for the remission of your sin. As Jesus said, “Those who are baptised and believe will be saved, those who don’t believe will be condemned.” You need to be baptised RIGHT AWAY.

Deception #5. They allow sinners to fellowship in church saying “We are all sinners” instead of warning those sinners and calling them to repentance. That is another deception of the church. They are NOT being separate from sin. They say we are all-inclusive and welcome all faiths of all backgrounds. Sinners go along and they stay in their sin. We are NOT to fellowship with sinners. Jesus came to bring a dividing fire and a segregation and separation. His people are both separate from the world, and those of another faith and other gospels. They are SEPARATE, because Jesus discriminates against anyone who is NOT of him, and he WONT allow them into heaven. Likewise we must be separate from those who are of another gospel, and not fellowship with them at all in the name of God. The church is deceiving you. We have to be REPENTING and OBEYING and FOLLOWING Jesus. Amen? We have to segregate and separate unto Christ within ourselves and not to mix with those of other faiths, other than to be standing for the name of Jesus, but not to be with them in prayer and agreeing with them under their own false Gods. That is fornication against God himself and a serious spiritual SIN.

Deception #6. Churches often say that going to THEIR church means you are saved and going to heaven. You ARE NOT saved and going to heaven because you have a church membership and because you go along to a church. I don’t care what church it is, but that is not the way of salvation. The ONLY way of salvation is to KNOW Jesus, be baptised in his name and follow him as a disciple keeping ourselves separate unto him and away from evil until the VERY END, walking in the tree fruits of the spirit: FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE. If that is not in your walk, you are not entering heaven!

Deception #7. Church won’t tell you that you need to be led personally by Jesus Christ as his DISCIPLE, and that you don’t need other leaders over you. Church doesnt seem to want people to obey and follow Jesus ONLY as their leader, because it takes the Church out of the equation. How can church have authority over you, when you have authority under Christ, who is another master? We cannot serve church AND another master. If your leaders are over you, how can you be under Christ? True leaders and true disciples of Jesus know they are equal with everybody. They just lead them on/to the way of truth if people would listen. Humility; Jesus said he who wishes to be the leader (great) among you must be your SERVANT. You don’t need church over you, nor to lead you, nor to be accountable to. You have to be accountable DIRECTLY TO CHRIST led by the Holy Spirit as your leader.

Deception #8. They don’t tell you that to be saved, you must walk on the NARROW way. Now a lot of churches say it is ok to walk how you wish, and that the blood covers your sins and it is ok. You don’t have to be perfect. It is ok to be in front of the footy, the sport, the entertainment, parades of sin and being a part of a sinful world. It is ok they say, because they say you are going to heaven because you BELIEVE. But that is NOT the narrow way. Often the churches are on the BROAD WAY to destruction and are not telling you that you have to be on the narrow way otherwise you will not find life. (and that is true)

Deception #9. Often the church leaders and preachers accept the praise of men. I have seen a lot of leaders accepting titles and praises of men, and not standing against those titles and saying as Jesus said, that there is nobody good. There is only ONE whom is worthy of honour and praise, and that is JESUS CHRIST. Woe to those who accept the praises of men and don’t reject it.

Deception #10. Churches often limit God to their PROGRAMS and they claim to be God’s representatives yet they limit him to their own works. Dear friends, we cannot mock God, we cannot be his leader and make him do what WE say, saying we are his representatives. God does what HE wants to do, and either we FOLLOW or we are not even in the picture. We don’t lead. God is not limited to our programs. He wants to lead us to the things HE wants us to do and they might be completely different to what you church is doing. We got to get to KNOW him so he can give us work to do and lead us instead of us try and lead him. Time to get into the back seat, and let God take the wheel.

Deception #11. Churches often praise God with SIN on their hands, and make Jesus a religious affair that doesnt carry his REALITY. (Big one) How often have you sat in church and praised to the wall and then go and live your own life for the week and you don’t know Jesus and he does not know you?! Jesus IS REAL. He is not the unreality that the Churches have made him.

Deception #12. Churches often say that THEIR church is the body of Christ even though they are not his disciples nor do they make disciples of Jesus Christ. Dear friends, the church is not the body of Christ! The body of Christ are all those who OBEY Jesus AND are his disciples who DO his words and OBEY his commands. They are his brother, his sister, and brethren. Those of ANOTHER gospel and these things I have been telling you about, they are NOT of God. They are NOT the body of Christ. If we expect to be in the body of Christ with the disciples of old, but we are walking like this current generation does, this Roman generation that loves the ways of this world like the days of Noah, we cannot expect to be in the company of those early disciples who were very well acquainted to their suffering and the narrow way, not living in the luxury of sin and wealth of today.

Deception #13. Church’s way and the way of the believer of the book of Acts are starkly different, they accept sinful rock music, sport, and entertainment in their church and claim God is ok with it. It should not be hard to see this deception. Cannot you see how DIFFERENT they are to the ways of the disciples? When they walk in sin and worldliness? The disciples NEVER walked that way. They were different. They are two different bodies.

Deception #14. Churches claim that THEIR church and liturgy is the way to life instead of being a disciple and follower of Jesus Christ. Dear friends, your church isn’t the way to heaven. Being a follower of Jesus Christ is the way to heaven, his teachings, and his ways.

Deception #15. Churches affiliate with the World’s governments, leaders, and the world’s wealthy and don’t rebuke those people’s ways and their lack of godliness. How many times have you seen the Church affiliating with the world’s governments and leaders, and affiliating with these ungodly leaders? They don’t rebuke those people. They don’t stand up for the truth. Dear friends, it is time to come AWAY FROM THE DECEPTION OF THE CHURCH and get yourself into a living relationship with Jesus Christ being led by his Spirit so he can free you from your sin, and lead you as his disciple in a real living relationship where you know him and he knows you and he leads you by his Holy Spirit. THAT IS THE TRUTH. BE A DISCIPLE OF JESUS AND BECOME PART OF THE REAL BODY OF CHRIST. DONT LET THE CHURCH DECEIVE YOU ANYMORE. Jesus bless you....

Why Believers Excuse Sinning

Many people believe the deception that we are just human and will always intentionally or unintentionally sin, that a lack of self-control is a (forgivable) human trait, but you see, I used to live in those ways in the past as well, and it was only when I realised that I wasn’t headed to the kingdom of God, that I realised that we do have to turn from ALL SIN and get to know Jesus, getting him into our lives to change us. So that is what I did. I started to pray and repent and really turn away from my sins, because I didn’t come to God making excuses. “God it is just down to my human nature, that I keep falling. I am bound to my lusts, it is just my human nature. God will forgive me.” I didn’t come to God with such an uncommitted heart like that! I came to God with a COMMITTED HEART wanting to please God with all my being not wanting to make any excuses for myself about the sins that I was doing, and I indeed was a slave to sin. It was only when I turned to Jesus with this seriousness of mind and heart, that he then came into my life and changed me. He gave me the power to live a new way. He gave me the power to live free from my old ways because I wasn’t making excuses. It is written in 2 Peter 1, that we must ADD to our faith daily: self-control, godliness, perseverance, faithfulness and love, and these things will keep us from falling away from being unfruitful in the kingdom of God, and lets us instead receive a warm welcome into the kingdom of God.

I want to tell you about one brother who had a vision from the Lord to wake him up. This brother believed in Jesus Christ, but he had PORN in his life. He was letting his human nature get the better of him and he was living in porn. Was he going to get mercy and grace from the Lord because he was HUMAN and MAKING MISTAKES? Well, in the vision, Jesus came and he wanted to run and hug Jesus. But when he ran towards the Lord, the Lord turned away from him because he had sin in his life. Then the brother woke up and he knew he had to REPENT. He knew that Jesus does not accept sin. He does not accept our lack of self-control. We don’t live in the period before the Cross, so we have NO EXCUSE ANYMORE. We live in the post-Jesus period, where we have the tools available to us to be able to stop sin. We have the power of the cross setting us free from sin, and we have the Holy Spirit to guide us. We have no more excuse to go on in our evil, and blaming our lack of self-control on our human nature!

We all know that the human nature is fallen, so we should not be following it. If we follow the human nature, we are going to reap death. If you say we are all sinners, and all hopelessly enslaved to our sin, it is our human nature and God understands and will forgive us, and will always give us grace, it is because you don’t know Jesus nor the power of the cross in your life. He has not set you free, and you do have no excuse before God. He will ask, “Why did you not repent, and make use of the tools I gave you? You have no excuse. You had the Son die for you, you had the cross, you had the Holy Spirit available to you, you didn’t take those things and make use of them and be free and follow me.” Dear friends, Jesus will turn away from you if you have sin in your life. He will not let you run to him. It is written in 2 Cor 6:9 that the unrighteous will not inherit God’s Kingdom: not the immoral, the adultery, the liar, the thief, and those who practice what is ungodly, they will NOT inherit God’s Kingdom. Anyone who lives that kind of life, will not inherit the Kingdom. We don’t have any excuse anymore. We’ve had the tools available to us: the Holy Spirit, Jesus’ Cross, the power of Christ, the change, the new way. We have had those things available to us yet we still go on and we say, “It is all fine, it is just human nature. God understands.” God understands that you don’t care about him, and don’t want to come and be free. You just want to blame your lack of self-control on other things. You don’t want to stand up and be a man and woman of God. You just want to keep sinning! You just want to HIDE in your lack of self-control. We have to ADD 2 Peter 1 to our faith daily: self-control, godliness, righteousness, perseverance and endurance, and these things will stop us from being unfruitful in God’s kingdom, and give us a warm welcome into heaven. My friends, are you decided? Do you believe that human’s lack of self-control, and intentionally, and unintentionally sinning will still allow you to be entering heaven and God being pleased with you? Do you believe that? THAT IS DECEPTION, because God does not accept those things; he does not accept our unrighteousness, and will turn away from us if we go on in sin.

He will turn away from us if we come to him and we have unforgiveness in our lives, porn, lust, immorality in our lives. Jesus will turn away from us if we do not SEPARATE from the world and its ungodly media, corrupting ourselves with their evil entertainment. Jesus will turn away from us if we don’t have him seriously and put OUT our evil desires and live by the Spirit. Those people who do put out their evil desires and follow the Spirit, are serious about Jesus and if they stumble they repent and get up. They don’t blame their lack of self-control on humanity, “We are all imperfect and going to make mistakes. We are all going to fall short and intentionally, or unintentionally sin.” The reason they say that, is because they are not right with God. They are not using the tools available to them to be free. That might be you today. Maybe there is sin in your life today that you need to get out, because if there is sin in your life and you are not turning it out, then Jesus will turn away from you like he did to this brother whom he sent the vision to to wake him up so he would get right with God, repent, and turn away from his sins. That is what Jesus requires of you. He doesn’t want to hear your excuses. After the cross, there are no more excuses. Now every person has no excuse to not repent and turn from their evil. There are no excuses anymore. No excuses: no lack of self-control, no weakness. You cannot blame your short fallings on these other things. You have to now repent and get right with the Lord, be led by his Spirit, and have the power of the Spirit crucify your flesh daily.

Live by the Spirit and crucify the flesh by living after the Spirit. Then you won’t carry out your evil desires. If you walked in this way, you would read the letters of the apostles and realise that these are the things they are telling you that you cannot see while you condone your sin. The scriptures are hidden to those whose hearts are not right with God, and who believe false doctrine. They read with blind eyes, and understand with blind minds. Don’t be like them. Repent. Come to the Lord seriously and come out of wickedness. He will free you, but you MUST repent. You must make no excuse anymore. You must get him to set you free fully from all iniquity, then you go add to your faith self-control, righteousness, holiness, perseverance, and endurance and these things will stop you from being unfruitful in the kingdom of God, and you will receive a warm welcome into heaven. Jesus bless you…...

Why You Can Sin No More

Jesus Christ said to go sin no more, to the woman who was found caught in adultery. If Jesus says we are to go sin no more, it means that he knows that it is possible, and that he requires it, and we can indeed sin no more! If it was impossible like a lot of people will tell you, then Jesus could not say to go sin no more, because who could do what was impossible? Many believers believe the deadly deception that the Apostle Paul went on sinning, where he wrote in Romans chapter 7, that he did things he didn’t want to do, but the sin living within him, did those things, so he wasn’t free to carry out his good intentions. But we know, that Paul wrote, “You are no longer obligated to follow the dictates of the flesh.” He further wrote in Galatians chapter 5, “Those who are of Christ, have crucified their passions of the flesh and its desires.” Have you? Have you crucified the passions of your flesh and its desires? Are you IN CHRIST? Jesus knew what he was talking about when he said to go sin no more, because he knew that, as Paul wrote in Romans chapter 7, that we are not capable of carrying out our good intentions, because of the evil that lies within us, causes us to continue to sin! That is why Jesus died on the cross, so that he could set us FREE from this predicament, that we would be given the power and the tools necessary, by the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome and no longer practice sin anymore! That is why, it is written in 1 John chapter 3, that those who abide in Jesus, don’t continue to sin. Jesus made it very clear where he said in John chapter 15 that he is the vine and you are the branches, and every branch that abides in him produces good fruit, and those who don’t wither, because he said you cannot do anything without me. That is why he said to, “Abide in me.” That is what Jesus told me when I turned to him, and turned away from my life of sin. He said to me to abide in him, because Jesus knows that when you abide in him, you will be given the power to overcome and add to your faith daily the good things of the Holy Spirit so you no longer live a life of wickedness. It is written that those of Christ become a NEW CREATION, and the old has passed away and the new has come! Now, has that happened for you? Has the old passed away for your life? Has the new come?

If it has, it is because you have come to KNOW Jesus. He has come to abide in you. But if it has not, and you are continuing to live a life after your own desires, and you are continuing to be entertained by this world’s wickedness on the TV screens, and the movies, and the sport, and all the things that this generation strives after, then how can you know Jesus? How can he abide in you? Because clearly, you are not a new creation. The old in you has not passed away. You still continue to sin and practice sin daily because you are a sinner! Not everything is in this category of sin, but if our minds are focused on this world, and being entertained by sin, adultery, and fornication on the TV screen, by the ungodly idol of sport in our lives, but the ungodly music of this generation such as hip-hop music, rock culture, pop culture, if that is what you identify with everyday, then it is very clear that your heart, you, are not transformed by Jesus Christ. The old has not passed away in you. You are not a new creation. Jesus and you do not abide with each other. If he did, you would show it by your new life. Not everything out there is sin, and showing that we are not on the right path. We all still have got to work in this world, and have some kind of connection with people in this world and unbelievers, but the thing is the difference between a follower of Christ who has been transformed because he has come to know Jesus by seriously seeking in faith, the difference with this person is that he is indeed separate from the way this world goes: they love immorality, they love diversity which they call gay, homosexual marriage, transgender etc. They love diversity. They love the diversity of sin. They love the latest wickedness of actors in movies. The celebrities, are loved by the world because they are of the world, and believers who also go after that, have nothing to do with Jesus Christ. Jesus does require us to go another way, and the person who has been changed by Jesus, goes another way! He doesnt continue being the old person. He only continues to follow Jesus in a NEW WAY where he is seeking to be led by Jesus each day. He wants to know what the Lord is doing in his life. His mission for the Lord.

I want to tell you that the mission of the Lord is definitely not a mission of being lukewarm in the world accepting sinners in their sins, accepting Christian sinners and celebrating diversity. That is not the way of Christ, that is the way of the wicked! That is the way of sinners who are on the path to destruction. A follower of Jesus is not sitting around in front of the sport. He is not having that idol in his life. He is not wasting his time pursuing these idols in his life. He is not putting his goals and what he wants to achieve in life first, rather he is looking for what JESUS wants him to do, because he wants to be a slave of the kingdom of God! The kingdom of God is about the gospel of Jesus, that Jesus has died for us and that we can follow him and be given eternal life through his saving name, because he died on the cross to set us free from our wickedness to cleanse away our sins, giving us the tools through the Holy Spirit to overcome sin and stop being sinners, rather to walk the new way to the kingdom of God, as a changed creation where the old has passed away and the new has come! It is called a testimony.

Unfortunately so many believers don’t have a testimony. They haven’t been transformed. They haven’t had the new way come inside. They continue to live their old way putting on the latest movies, not interested in turning away from these things before the Lord. They are instead interested in everything that is going on with celebrities and sport, yet they are not interested in following Jesus. If we follow Jesus, then we have got to be SEPARATE in our hearts and minds. We have to watch what we allow into our hearts and minds otherwise that will corrupt us. If you sit in front of the media of this world, you will be polluted and corrupted by their fallen ideals you are being entertained by. But if you separate yourself and spend your time in prayer, reading the scriptures, and being dedicated in doing the will of Christ in what he wants you to do (and if you don’t know, seeking it) then you are going to progress in your path to the kingdom of God growing in endurance and the good things of the Spirit, pursuing the way that enters the kingdom of God being the few who enter the kingdom, instead of the many who try to enter but cannot.

Dear souls, I council you to give yourself up to Christ in all areas of your life, that you follow him daily, being serious about his name in all areas. You have to be SERIOUS about Jesus, otherwise you are not going to make it into that narrow gate, because the hour is late, and if we wait till it is too late, then we are going to be one of those knocking on the outside, saying, “Lord let us in, let us in!” And the Lord will say, “Go away I don’t know you, nor where you are from. Depart from here!” And they will have to go away. But those who were overcoming, keeping their robes from sinning, adding to their faith self-control, righteousness, and godliness, perseverance, and love, these people will receive a warm welcome into heaven, and will sit down with Jesus who overcame also and sat down with the Father. Let us HEED the Lord. Let us examine our life today and kick out what is displeasing to the Lord, that we may also be walking on this new way to the kingdom of God taking Jesus seriously before time runs out on us. It is running out and there is not much time left. May the Lord bless you. ...

Why Christians Are NOT Saved Now

Nobody is saved yet, nor are YOU, because none of us on this side of eternity have endured until the end, and received the crown of life and entered the kingdom of God. If we had our salvation now, we would no longer need to endure. We would no longer need to be watchful and persevere. We would no longer need to overcome. But Jesus said that we who are victorious and overcome will have the right to sit with him on his throne like he overcame and sat with the Father on his throne. We haven’t finished our assignment yet on this earth. Everybody on this side of eternity is neither in heaven nor in hell. So neither are we condemned on this side of heaven or hell, but we are also neither saved. We are not IN hell, and we are not IN heaven. Therefore, on this side of eternity, we cannot be condemned to hell, nor can we be saved and enter heaven. My friend, you have to endure on the narrow way right up to the very end as overcomers adding to our faith the good things of righteousness, endurance, perseverance, self-control, love, living for Jesus, hating our life for his sake, keeping separate from the broad path that leads to destruction full of its sport-loving, idol-obsessed, sin-loving generation, and we have to endure with Jesus on this narrow way until the end, then we will inherit the crown of life. Nobody who starts the race of faith, or any race, has finished and won the prize until he has crossed the finish line. So it is with eternal life: if we have not crossed the finish line of the race of faith and run with endurance, then we HAVN’T FINISHED! We have not got eternal life. WE HAVN’T GOT SALVATION because we have not finished yet. We have not crossed the line yet! People come to me so worried about losing their salvation.

My friend, you don’t have salvation because you haven’t finished. They are so worried about being CONDEMNED. My friend you are NOT condemned because you are not yet in hell. In hell you are condemned, in heaven you are saved, but until that day, we are neither condemned nor saved. We are either on our WAY to condemnation on the BROAD PATH OF DESTRUCTION, because we are following our lusts and following satan, OR we are on our way to the Kingdom of God because we are denying ourselves, picking up our cross and following Jesus on the narrow way to salvation. The narrow way is a way of holiness dressed in white. It is not a way of saying we BELIEVE IN JESUS and that makes us holy by faith, no! Believing in Jesus AND having him come into our hearts to change us and cleanse us, that makes us holy because then we turn away from sin, because then we repent and we dedicate to the narrow way, and we DON’T go after this sport-obsessed, sin-loving, immoral generation. We don’t spend our time in front of the TV watching what the godless entertain themselves with which is EMPTY, MINDLESS, RUBBISH. We instead keep our eyes and our hearts focused on Jesus! We dont waste our time with computer games, violence and sin, drinking and drugs! All these things are on the BROAD PATH TO DESTRUCTION. And let me tell you categorically today that if you do those things that are of the broad path, you will find out at the end of that road when it is time to go to either heaven or hell, that the NARROW GATE DOES NOT LIE AT THE END OF THE BROAD PATH OF DESTRUCTION. Hell lies at the end of the broad path to destruction, and once you fall off into hell at the end of that road, then you are condemned. You probably thought that you had salvation all the way until that day, then you realised you were decieved because you didn’t realise (or you closed your eyes to the reality) that the narrow way of eternal life and the gift of eternal life, and the crown of eternal life, isn’t given to those who are not victorious and to those who do not overcome, nor to those who do not walk on the narrow way. The race of faith begins at your faith in Jesus at the CROSS, and then from then we have to walk on this narrow way with Jesus, with the Holy Spirit leading us. We begin with the baptism of water, and our faith in Jesus and the cross, we experience the new way coming into our hearts of freedom from sinning daily, and we dedicate and walk daily adding to our faith righteousness, self-control, Godliness, perseverance, all the way until we die. That is the believer who builds his house on the rock, and the storms don’t shake it because it is built on the rock. He is a DOER of the word, not a hearer only. Then that person, inherits the crown of life. HE GETS SAVED. But he wasn’t saved until he had finished the race. Until we have finished the race, we can actually go back to the broad path to destruction and pull out of the race and be disqualified. We can pull out, we can not endure, we can go back to the side lines, we can run back to the way of destruction, we can kill the way of truth inside of us and walk off back to the lusts of the flesh that tempt us daily, and we can NOT endure and end up in the lake of fire.

That is what happens when we do not live the way of Jesus seriously, but we let the compromise of the world get into our hearts causing us to be no longer on the narrow way of faith, righteousness, perseverance and endurance, and instead we are on a substitute road with one foot in the world where we have got the broad path to destruction in our lives, yet we claim Jesus by faith and go to church and have the gifts but we do not walk the narrow way racing the race of faith with endurance! Is that you today? Are you thinking you are saved now so you are not walking the way? I want to encourage everyone listening to this video today that you MUST walk the way to the kingdom of God, the narrow way, and separate yourself from sin, from your desires of evil lusts, separate yourself from following porn, ungodliness, temptation, separate yourself from the TV, movies, and sport-obsessed ways of this immoral generation that is full of its own idolatries, separate yourself from laughing with the crowd in what they want to be entertained by, separate yourself from drinking and having a good time in the world saying we are al sinners and Jesus came to eat with sinners…it is a lie, for Jesus came to call people unto REPENTANCE to this narrow way I am telling you about, where you live for Jesus every day, you dedicate to his name, and he leads you. He leads you and he is your master, and you are his disciple. I am here to make you a DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST like I found the way to be a disciple also.

A disciple of Jesus Christ denies himself, picks up his cross, and follows Jesus UNTIL THE VERY END. He then inherits eternal life, and gets his salvation. A disciple of Jesus Christ who then becomes a lazy servant and starts drinking with the drunkards and living in the world, he is going to end up CUT OFF and IN THE OUTER DARKNESS like Jesus said in those important parable he told. The disciple who then turns aside to the world and withers up, he then gets cut off from the vine by the Father. I am here to encourage all to walk as a DISCIPLE DAILY UNTIL THE VERY END so that you can ATTAIN THE CROWN OF SALVATION and attain the right to sit with Jesus. May Jesus bless you...

Discipleship NOT CHURCH

I want to talk about disciples, discipleship and the reality of actually following Jesus for real. I don't talk about going to that the church down the road and just hearing about Jesus. I mean actually being his disciple; the walk of a disciple following the narrow way.

There was a time in the 1980s, a large movement of people were turning to Jesus Christ in China, and a lot of them were then thrown in prison by the communist government, and Jesus would help them get through that time. One sister was complaining in prison to the Lord about it because she had broken leg when she was thrown off a building have trying to escape from them, and Jesus said, “You suffer, but I suffered also.” She realised that it was worthy to suffer for Jesus instead of suffering for being a criminal or suffering that’s your own fault. But suffering for Jesus is something even better, something wonderful. She came to understand what it was to follow Jesus and that Jesus would not leave her.

Like other people there, they would be led by the Holy Spirit. The church did not get their dirty hands into them for quite a long time, and so they just follow Jesus as disciples. Miracles would happen. They'd be led by the Holy Spirit. Most people were illiterate like this particular man who was called to be a disciple. He was a farmer and in those days in China, most people on that social level wouldn't be able to read or write, and they were illiterate.

The church hadn’t got their dirty hands into them yet, and so they continued to be led as disciples of Jesus, hallelujah, building God’s kingdom as disciples. But now the churches have got their dirty hands into the flock of Jesus and a lot of those people are fallen away, or they just following church now. The churches are busy ruining the kingdom of God as they always do. But previous to that, most of these people were disciples of Jesus. They were walking in a relationship with Jesus. They were being led by the spirit and would go to different places as led by the spirit. People were coming to the faith, and people were turning from sin and practising the doctrine of holiness, righteousness, repentance, baptism as these things are written out in the Bible in the words of Jesus. They just simply practised the way of the disciple. They didn't need to be church because they were already the true church of Jesus. They were disciples. But later the hands of the church got into them. A lot of them fell away to being led of man.

Many sit down in church and praise the Lord in dead songs, or they just join in with the world again and they just go to church on Sunday looking their best, but not knowing Jesus.

Dear friends it is time to wake up, come out of the dirty church, and instead we need to become disciples of Jesus again, led by the spirit. Instead people just go and sit down, have a nice time, and look religious and holy on Sunday. A nice time and eat good food on Sunday. You know my friends, that's not the way of Jesus.

I want to talk about becoming a disciple of Jesus. Some years ago I used to just go along to church and I thought I would be doing alright by God as I did this, but I didn't live for Jesus, I wasn't his follower, I wasn't his disciple. I let myself listen to nice teachings.

Groups will look after their own. I was listening to a video by another brother the other day, saying how the church looked after him so well. The church looked after his needs but they look after the FLESH not the SOUL. I read a comment from a Catholic church goer where they said that Catholics never try to convert anyone to their faith. They just say to be who you are, and all roads lead to God the Father. You have to be led to the Catholic Church by God, they say. I thought yes that's the way of the church, because they don't know Jesus. The dirty church has got dirty hands and they don't clean their hearts.

My friends, when I started to realise that we must follow Jesus as disciples again, I used to think about the church. I wondered why they were so different. I realised because they are not the same thing as the early church and what you see today are not the same thing as what was then. You must realise what you see today is a perversion of the truth that Satan set up; a synagogue of Satan, that church we see today down the road, or those tall archways with those strange figures carved over them, all those priests in grand gowns, drifting around. The preacher in the pulpit gets up to preach with a black shirt with white bit around the neck….that's the synagogue of Satan!

They say, “Do not forsake the assembly.” I’m sure they do many good things, but then so does the world! Even the ungodly give charity, even the ungodly help their own, even the ungodly give money, and they help the windows and the orphans. Even the ungodly do that. My friends, they don't look after the SOUL. They stand in front of the kingdom and they stop people from entering.

I was listening to a video from another brother yesterday, who was talking about how the religious leaders stand in front of the door to eternal life, and they will not entered and they would suffer nobody else to enter. That's what Jesus said. Jesus said that the religious leaders stand in front of the door to the kingdom and do not suffer anyone to enter, and they themselves do not enter. Jesus said that, and it is the same today my friends. That's why today I want to talk about a relationship and a discipleship of Jesus.

The discipleship is not your church down the road, that's not the discipleship. When you meet with them you're not obeying the scriptures to gather together, because they are not a gathering of true believers. They are a gathering of people who believe in a doctrine, whatever doctrine that is at church, and call it Christianity. Now, they are going to copy what is in the scriptures, and make things very similar, that's why when you see the creed of any church; the creed of the Catholic Church, the creed of the Orthodox Church, any church, you are going to see certain truths so that you think that they must be on the right way. But there's something missing! There is always something missing. You know what's missing? It is the discipleship that is missing: being gathered with Jesus and being led by the spirit is missing.

Somebody can call themselves Pentecostal, and many times most of them are led by another spirit, strange fire, but you know my friends, these ways are not the ways to the kingdom of God! You are joining the synagogues of man. That isn't the way to the kingdom of heaven.

I attended a church in the UK. They had such wonderful singing and had such soulful Bible reading and all, but there wasn't any disciples of Jesus. It was dead. There was only one old beggar woman who was praising the Lord because she had a relationship with Jesus. Most people’s understanding about the truth is that the church is the house of God. But think again my friends, for the church you see down the road, that's not the house of God!

God said that he no longer lives in buildings of men. He no longer dwells in buildings made by the hands of men. Jesus said that the time is coming when you do not have to go to the house of God to worship God, rather you will have him in spirit and truth, and that is written later in the words of Paul, that YOU are the temple of God: “For do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit?”

You are the church. So why are you going to church when you are the church? People say, “I go because I want to gather with other believers.” But these people they gather with are following a creed, a sect, another doctrine. They are following churchianity. They are following something else, and to gather together with them is disobedience to scripture, for it says NOT to gather together with those who live in sin, or cause divisions, and these people cause divisions. They name their division a certain name. The name of their division might be Pentecostal, or might be Baptist, it may be something else, but it is a division, it's a sect. The largest division is the false Roman Catholic Church that perverts the truth and brings in a half true, half lies doctrine that is doing lots of harm to the kingdom of God. They hold up their so-called saints. Their saints, my friends, are sinners that don’t know the gospel.

One of the famous saints was Mother Teresa who would tell Hindus to pray to their gods when they die. She was a soul trap. She was preaching another Gospel. It is written accused is he who brings in another Gospel. The Catholic church is under a curse, it is a synagogue of Satan, my friends, along with the other churches, because they are not the true church. YOU are the church. We've got to realise today that true disciples of Jesus have a relationship with him. Like I was saying about those Christians in China in the 1980s.

Now that time was a time before this terrible falling away we see today. Then, there was a scattering of many such disciples of Jesus in the churches, who heard his voice and who were led by him, and who did his bidding. Many of those were in church. Some of those were preaching in church and they brought the light of Christ into these lifeless buildings of men, and many miracles would happen. You see that was in the past in the 60s and 70s, maybe the 80s, where people would actually gather there and they would have Spiritual gifts of Prophecy, and they would have the gift of tongues, and would help each other as disciples. There were actually many churches that were filled with many disciples. But this doesn’t make the church (of man) suddenly something good!

There was one certain disciple back in the 1700s or the 1800s, who would go to preaching in the fields. He wasn't ordained by the local church, and so they had a big problem with him. He went and prayed for a sick woman and she got healed. The leaders of the church had a big problem with that. When you want to baptise someone you can't baptise someone if you are not ordained by them. But that's what the church has done ever since the beginning back in the fourth century or the third century, whenever it was they tried to control the work of Jesus. A false entity. And so most of the people in those leadership positions, those laypeople, they're part of this false cancer, this entity. God only tolerated it because a lot of his disciples were in these places. A lot of other disciples din't actually realise the falsity of it all, and they just continued to do the work of God in these churches anyway. They kept leading people to a relationship with Jesus Christ. Those people kept coming along to these false entities.

But today God has pulled out the disciples out of the churches. He has brought out the salt from out of the false entity that we call church today, and that is why we do not see hardly any disciples left in the church. And that's why you see them fall so far now because once there is the restraint gone, now they can fall to the doctrines of hell. They accept homosexuality, they except abortion and sin, and people go along with it because they were never disciples to begin with.

Church is a false entity. That is why, my friends, you should not go to church because it's only going to get worse, and you're not going to find disciples there. When you go to church, they blind your eyes to what is coming, and what's going to happen soon. I already can see the government getting more and more control inside of the church. In fact churches are affiliated with the government. It has got nothing to do with God. It has got everything to do with the governments of this world who are NOT Christian. Obama is not christian. He is a church convert, and is a false disciple.

You know the churches of the devil is the synagogue of Satan. These so called Christian leaders are not christian at all. They are of the synagogue of Satan. They are not disciples of Jesus. Do you think disciples of Jesus walk like that? They are so deceived by the lies of the false church for the last 1700 years or so, that everyone thinks, “I am a Christian, I go to church.”

We automatically think, “Okay that must mean they are going to the kingdom of God.” It is not true. The way to the kingdom of God is only one way and that is through faith and in a discipleship with Jesus, where he becomes your reality. Then you can walk with Jesus listening to him as he leads you in your life, turning away from temptation, turning down the flesh when it arises and tries to pull you back down into sin. You know, that's how we follow Jesus. We follow Jesus by faith in a personal reality, when he becomes real to us. Instead we go and get ourselves dumbed down at the local church and think that you have to have communion with them. But you are having communion with those who are not on the path of righteousness. That is sin. You should never eat the supper with those people my friends. The Last Supper was only supposed to be eaten with disciples of Jesus. Not with those of other sects and divisions. It's written in the Bible to keep away from those who cause division, and the world of Christianity, which is a division unto itself, is full of divisions. They have got a name for every division. It might be Catholic, it might be Orthodox, or Pentecostal, you name it there's a division, and all of those my friends are all not of the discipleship of Jesus. They don't do his words, they don't obey him.

Some may realise the truth when they study the scriptures and realise they have got to repent, and may become disciples of Jesus. Others are in such a bad situation in life that they repent and they call out to God like I did, and then he comes to them and they become disciples of Jesus. Others are drawn by God, and maybe a church person tells them about Jesus and then they decide to believe in Jesus and they start to follow him as his Disciple, but then some of them then become Churched and they fall away from being a disciple, and stop following Jesus. They go along to the church instead.

God uses anybody and anything to bring people to himself. It wasn't the people doing it, rather he uses whatever might be available. One time he used a donkey to speak to Balaam, but the donkey wasn’t something wonderful. Nobody is wonderful, but they may happen to be the way that God uses them. But you see my friends, the way of a disciple of Jesus is the way of a relationship with him. It is where they start to become obedient to the ways that Jesus set out in the Scriptures, because they realise that Jesus is real. People cry out for revival in their church, when what people need is their own revival. They need to know Jesus personally. The congregation sitting in church, doesn't know Jesus. When you don't know Jesus, there is no discipleship and then how can Jesus work in their lives! Work with their words, work to free them from their sins, if they don't know him!

Do you know him? Are you being churched? You know my friends, those Christians in China in the 80s, they were following the Holy Spirit and would travel around just as normal people, as this illiterate farmer did, and the church couldn’t get their hands on him because he was in a communist country, so they were able to just do the work for the Lord unhindered by the church. They would bring people to Jesus as disciples and believers. They themselves would turn to the Lord and a lot of them were then thrown in prison from the government because it was illegal to be not part of the government church. The government churches were not the Church of Jesus Christ and anybody who was following Jesus as a disciple knew that they couldn't join themselves with a synagogue of Satan. I wonder why people join themselves with a synagogue of Satan today, that's affiliated with the government?

Those religious leaders that are praying for the President, who comes to them yet their hands are dripping with the blood of people, do not even rebuke them. They think they are Christian just because he goes to church. You know my friends, church is a false organisation that crowns kings, is ordained by the government. Do you think that has got anything to do with Jesus Christ?

What about that nice big place you go to where you sing with thousands of people that come along and listen to contemporary Christian music, contemporary nonsense. That's not Jesus either. That's a club, a group, another sect. The disciples of Jesus always have one thing in common my friends, and that is that they preach and live repentance, holiness, and the truth of Jesus: they live repentance, holiness, and faith. Those things are missing from the believers in Church. They may read a sermon about that, but they themselves are not living by faith in Jesus.

They are not living like that Farmer was as a disciple of Jesus. A man in India, he was an old Hindu follower and then he became a Christian because God gave him a dream about Jesus Christ and how he was to accept Jesus, and there happened to be a local church person who told him about Jesus, and he accepted Jesus. The church didn’t get their dirty hands into him, for gladly God protected him from all that, and he continued to just work for Jesus in his own life telling his followers about Jesus, making a church, a real church, a making of discipleship. I don't know whether the Church did actually succeed in extinguishing his life, I don't know I don't didn't follow up with him, but from what I heard at that point he was making disciples of his people who knew him, and those people were becoming the church. They would be meeting together, not in the ungodly church of man, but meeting together in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they could be a real church meeting together as disciples of Jesus, and then Jesus can do things with them.

Jesus can't do much with us if we are leading ourselves in our own little doctrines, in our own sect. Call it whatever it is, but you don’t have to be following it. You know my friends, we can't learn to preach the truth, study hard and work out how to do it, memorise some sermons, memorise some Bible verses. You can't learn how to follow Jesus my friends. It is not something you do, otherwise it is really just a religious ritual such as: to study hard and learn the ropes of Learning how to recite the Koran…. You know my friends, following Jesus is about being led by the Holy Spirit knowing him personally, because Jesus is real. He is alive today. When I started to seek Jesus, he started to speak into my spirit. He started to change my life and to set me free from sin I was bound to.

You know this is the reality of Jesus Christ. He will actually cause real things to happen to you. Jesus will cause real things to happen to you. He will enter your life for real. Then you don't have to be bound by the church, and by the tax of the church. When you're busy being burdened down by the tax of the church, they call tithing which they enforce with the Bible, and when you're bound to going along down Sunday otherwise you're disobeying a bible verse as they say, (they adamantly prove that they're apparently the rock of Peter’s Church and who knows what else by the Bible which the clergy manipulates and puts words in like ‘Bishop’ and ‘Pastor’ so that they can say that's them and got to do what they say) then you are not able to follow Jesus. You can't follow Jesus when you are being pulled around by other people, and being under the burden of the church. But when you're free from them, you can go where Jesus takes you and leads you to do. Then you can be free to give as freely as you're given. God doesn't require you to pay a 10% tax. The world does, the government will make you pay more than that, and we must pay what the government orders, however God doesn't require a church tax.

God requires a disciple who gives willingly and that from what we have with a cheerful heart as it's written. Those who sow much, reap much. Those who sow a little reap a little. I hear a lot of preachers talking about reaping back money that you give to the church…But really this is talking about reaping back eternal rewards for the work of the kingdom of God which includes: giving and preaching, prayer, praise, repentance, holiness and faith, all those things are all part of a disciple of Jesus Christ.

You know my friends, God is very merciful and even though there is this false entity called church on the earth, anyone who cries out to his name will be saved. Heaps of people have been in church and found Jesus Christ, and have called out to God realising his reality. But the problem is a lot of those people have now fallen away and the blood of the saints is on the hands of the church, because the churches led them astray. That is the big problem and that's what I want you to know about is this great falling away of the church, so you can be a disciple of Jesus.

Now let's gather together today dear friends. Let's talk about how we endure and enter the kingdom of heaven and how it's not like the church says. We don't listen to the church, here we listen to Jesus Christ led by the Spirit. We listen to words of Jesus, the teachings of his as written and in our spirits, instead of listen to what the church says, otherwise we'll miss heaven, because there's only one truth, and that is through the Lord himself and Jesus has made very clear to us the way to the kingdom. It isn't what the church is saying. They say you should just believe and come to church, and now you're Christian. And some say be baptised and that's it! They don't care for your soul. You know my friends that's not it. When we become born again, that is only the beginning. When we become grafted into the vine of Jesus Christ, then we can bear fruit. But if you don't remain in Jesus, and you become churched and you listen to man, and you fall away from the truth, because you don't abide with Jesus. You fall away from his lifeline, life connection to the vine, led by the spirit, hearing his voice, following him. If you don't stay with him, your branch will wither. That's what the church never said. People they go along and become churched after turning to Jesus, and they start to wither. They stop bearing fruit because they are no longer connected to Jesus, and start to follow MAN. They live in sins, and become bound to sins, and their pastor keeps telling them it's alright, you are saved, just repent of your sin…but they're bound to sin and start following their lusts and desires, and then end up in hell because they believed the lie that when you're born-again, that's it: you're sealed for heaven and now you can never lose your salvation….but they were not told that you must ENDURE, you must develop perseverance through faith and repentance. They were not told that you must add to your faith in increasing measure daily endurance, perseverance, godliness, love, and these will keep you from falling away to the flesh to the sins of the flesh.

Just because you believe than you are saved, doesn't mean you're going to be saved if you are in that situation yet you don't follow Jesus. Jesus made is so very clear where he said that YOUR branch must remain in the vine so that you can bear fruit pleasing to the Father. Jesus made is so clear that if your branch is grafted in, which is when you become born-again, and you go cutting yourself from Jesus in sin, it means that your branch withers and it is going to get cut off by God later, and thrown into the fire. Jesus made it so clear in his own words in the parable of the fig tree, where there was a tree in the garden that wasn't bearing fruit, and the owner of the garden said, “Cut down this tree and take it out of the garden! I've been coming to it year after year and finding no fruit on it.”

Not bearing fruit as a disciple is one who was walking after Jesus Christ and living for Jesus, but then became preoccupied with the world, the cares of the world, and the music, the computer games, the videos and moves, and all the things that they love, the sports the fun… you know, the things the world's mind is set on. What happens was my friends he's had his mind set on all these things and he stopped bearing fruit, and the Father comes along, and sees his tree not bearing fruit, and in time if he does not repent, the Father will have him removed from the garden.

But the gardner Jesus, warns them to realise they are on a false path. Other people have bad things happen in their life, and they run to their church member and asked them why these things are happening in their life and they don't tell them the truth. Problem is a lot of these people end up getting cut down and cast out of the garden that they had been transferred into when they first believed. And that my friends is what they're not telling you is that you must walk as a disciple, because they are NOT disciples. They say these things because they are not disciples. They think heaven is the way of just following religious ideas, rituals, and murmurings with your tongue, but they themselves are not disciples and are not going to teach you the way of a disciple.

But I'm here to go the way of a disciple, to be led by the spirit, and to be constantly connected to Jesus where you are going to bear fruit! You know when your mind and heart is on JESUS every day, and temptation and sin comes, you're able to overcome. You're able to put sin out and not follow the sins of the flesh. Maybe you stumble a few times and you have to repent, but you're able to turn away and endure and put out the flesh and follow Jesus. Hallelujah! That's what you're able to do. But when you're not following Jesus and you're just following the church, you are not able to do that and you become fruitless. (not connected to the vine Jesus)

That's why some of these people in China, they were so fruitful for the Lord, and then 20 years later the great falling away happens and everyone starts to listen to the church and stops listening to Jesus and the disciple’s light within grows cold. The light goes out, because they started to get into the church and the church of course never was anything to do with the truth to begin with, and Satan’s synagogue succeeded over them and ended up having their light put out! That happened to so many people. Church is the enemy my friends. They are not our friends. That church down the road, that is an enemy to the gospel, an enemy to the disciples of Jesus. They are the ones Satan will work with to bring about the destructive doctrines of heresy. And that is where we get all this nonsense such as Calvinism, and the Catholic doctrines, and all these other ideas…

But I am not here to preach the doctrine your pastor does. I'm here to tell you to go to the reality of JESUS and be led by HIM, like that illiterate farmer I told you about in China. He heard the gospel of Jesus and God drew him and he became a disciple, and heard the voice of the Lord. God would tell him to go there to that village and preach my word and he went and did it.

God used a farmer, just like he did Peter and miracles happened, and become in the leadership of hundreds and hundreds of people who were finding Jesus. He was telling them about Jesus even though he didn't know the Bible, and couldn't read. He hadn't read the Bible my friends but was a disciple of Jesus. People they get smart when they become churched, and they become tied up in the Scriptures and then stop bearing fruit and they stop following Jesus, and no longer a part of the gospel, nor part of the work of God. Then there's no more revival with them, nor miracles, nor the new way. No more victory over sin. They wither and perish.

Today my friends is time to become a disciple of Jesus. This is when the Lord draws you to turn to him and repent and seek his name. The only thing that matters is what your relationship with is Jesus today. How is your relationship with Jesus? Is it helping you overcome your sinful ways in your heart? Is he using you to bring people to repentant to the gospel of truth? (if you are called to do that) Or are you just a sinner and going to be discarded! How is our relationship with Jesus?

You know all that matters in the end is our relationship with the giver of the word of truth, and that is Jesus. When you have him you don't need anything else. You don't need a church. You don't need fellowship, because fellowship is very dangerous, and can cause you to fall away from the truth. For within every fellowship there is going to be those of the enemy. So we need be very careful about fellowship. People seek fellowship but they don't have fellowship with Jesus Christ!

Don’t seek fellowship of man my friends because Jesus will take away your crutches if you don't know him and the people you want to rely on until you finally need to rely on HIM. That's what he did for me. I didn't have anyone I could rely on until I finally called out to him.

Jesus wants us to have fellowship with him and then when we are strong, because we have a good connection to the vine (Jesus) then we can be of use to people who need the same thing we have. We can lead them to have fellowship with Jesus if they'll listen, then we can have fellowship with another disciple of Jesus, for he leads us to make disciples of all men…The fellowship of disciples, the true church…....

You Are Not Saved Yet

Many profess Jesus and come to the faith, but they fall away from Grace, away from the faith. They were with Jesus for a few years, and then you don't see them any more as they fall away. That's why, my friends, we have to be serious about keeping vigilant and watchful against the enemy, for he comes to snatch away our faith, to hinder our progress so we don't reach maturity. People need not heed Satan and listen to him, but the problem is a lot of people and do fall to the things Satan brings into their life and they fall away. That's why Jesus talked about the seed that landed on the footpath.

They hear the truth and they accept it with joy but then Satan comes along and snatches out the seed. They endure a little while, but soon persecution comes along and trials, for the faith they follow away that's what happens to a lot of people I'm fall away to the cares of this life some fall away to the worries, and the pursuits of this life. Others fall away to the lust of the flesh and others follow other various things and they do not continue in the steadfast of faith that they began with. But that's not what we're here to do!

When I came to Jesus in 2009, I came to Jesus for long-term to progressively walk with him on the new way, however along the way temptation came along to try and get me to lose my footing so that I would not endure, but fall away. Satan wants you to cut yourself off from the vine. That's why he comes after born-again Christians. Many born-again believers believe that once you're born again that's it, you are now sealed and done. But satan knows that's not true, because if it was true he wouldn't bother about you. But since he can get a born-again believers to cut themselves off from the vine Jesus Christ, he comes along to bother you. He tries get them to doubts just like he went along to Jesus to do the same, because he knows that if he can get you to fall away, to start walking the worlds way again, then he can get you to be cut off from the vine! You know dear friends, the devil knows you can wither and he knows that the Father will in time cut-off such branches, gather them up, and have them cast into the great fire. That is why, my friends, we must be vigilant and watchful, for satan walks around like a roaring lion looking to whom him may devour. And he will surely devour us if we're found not being vigilant and watchful, but we are found following our own paths in our own sins not being serious about Jesus Christ. That's why I warn everybody to be vigilant and watchful, less you fall prey to the enemy.

When we follow Jesus, we may lose a lot of things for Jesus Christ. We may lose our family for Jesus. We may lose our job for Jesus, but we have nothing to fear about the cares of life, because Jesus will provide for those who fear him, and who follow him as his disciples. He will provide for them. And so, even though some things may test your faith, Jesus will provide and make sure that you don't go without for your circumstances.

Someone like Paul could go without a lot of things because he didn't have a family to care for, but for other people they need certain things and that's why Jesus provides for he is God. God knows how to provide from his children. It might seem a bad or impossible situation, but if you trust in Jesus and you follow him, he will be your provider for your situation. He is not coming along to make you rich and prosperous, like the prosperity message teaches, because that's getting people to focus on what the world is chasing after: their wealth, seeking prosperity, but he will make you prosperous in what you do if you're serving him and your mind and your heart is on the Lord Jesus Christ! Then he will certainly make you prosperous so that you can bear fruit for the kingdom of God, prosperous in the Kingdom, and also for your worldly needs. Jesus knows how to look after his sheep, and those follow him will be looked after. We must obey and serve him. Some people see Jesus as a means for their provision. They're interested in other things. You know, my friends, let us not to fall away to having the wrong mindset towards Jesus Christ, because if you have the wrong mindset towards Jesus, what happens is when you get to the gates of heaven, you won't be able to enter. We don't have to worry about entering those gates if we follow and obey Jesus, and we take him seriously. We can have faith and Jesus will bring us into his kingdom. But we have a lot to worry about if we don't have the right mindset about Jesus. If you just seek Jesus and his power to just give us a better life, if that's what your mindset is, a worldly mindset, if you're seeking Jesus to make your company go better, to make your sport go better, to give you prosperity, to give you an edge over your peers, over your rivals, if that's what you're seeking Jesus about, then you have the wrong mindset, and you're not going to have any communication with him, and he is not going to know you.

That's not the way to know Jesus. The way to know Jesus is to truly let go of your life, and let go of the things you hold onto, and just live for the kingdom of God. It's a way of madness for this world. After all, why should you just live for the way of this world? Why should you just live for another kingdom, when we have this life now? People want to live their best life now! They want to heap up preachers for themselves that would tell them that you can live your best life now. That's the wrong message. That's the wrong focus. That's another tactic of Satan to give you his kingdoms on earth. That's why he came to Jesus and said, “I’ll give you the kingdoms of earth.” Satan wants to give you the kingdoms of earth, and get you to miss out on the kingdom of heaven. He knows what's coming in heaven and he wants you to miss out. So, like I said earlier, many start the race of faith but few finish. They don't stay serious.

I have seen so many people over the time I've been following the Lord, who start well, but they don't finish. They fall away each to their various trials and struggles. That's not what we're here to do my friend. We are not here to fall away to our trials and struggles. We are not here to fall away to the world, to the cares of life, to the sins of the flesh, to the temptations of the flesh. I have know many who fall away from the faith. They go back to their worldly acquaintances, and long for for the old life and then go back to them and shipwreck their faith. People follow Jesus for while, but then the pull from the old life is too great and they end up getting pulled back into the fold, to the fold of the goats. They couldn't stay in the fold of the sheep. Dear friends we are not the goats! People get pulled back into it all, back into the partying, into the worldly lifestyle, back into the living for pleasure and not living for God, back into the captivations of this life, the things that captivate men's hearts down here: the sports, the entertainment, the glory of the earth, the glory of man, the pride of life, all the things people do captivate their hearts and they get pulled back into the fold of the goats. They don't stay with the sheep. They don't stay listening to Jesus. Jesus is too boring for them. That happens a lot my friends. We've got to walk the way to the kingdom keeping our mind and heart fixed on the kingdom above, then we will never fall away. That's what is written about the way: keeping our hearts fixed on the kingdom above then we will ever fall away; adding to our faith self-control, godliness, love, perseverance and endurance in increasing measure every day, and then we will never fall away to the sins of the flesh, to the sins of life, but we will receive a grand entry into the kingdom of God.

Jesus said, “Seek you first the kingdom of God.” We got to live for the kingdom instead of the kingdom of earth. We have got to be different to the world. They live for the family, they live for their career, they live for the sport and for their talents, they live to get the best out of life living your best life now. I've heard people talk about somebody who died doing what they loved, “Oh, at least they died doing what they loved,” as if that's a comfort, a good thing. That person is burning in hell under their feet. If they can say that, it's because the world is blinded and darkened by the enemy, listen to Satan. They don't even know Satan exists, yet they listen to him daily by the way of the world. They don't have their minds and hearts fixed on the kingdom above. That's why it's madness to this world to fix your mind on above.

I expose these things, because that's what we're here to do today is to fix our minds and hearts on the kingdom above. We are the true sheep of God. As Jesus said, “Fix your mind and heart on the kingdom of God first and then all these things of earth that you need will be added to you.” Jesus provides for all my needs, because I'm fixing my heart and mind on the kingdom above. He looks after my worldly needs. Jesus said, “Are not you worth more than a few sparrows whom the Father looks after and who knows which ones fall to the ground? Are you not worth more than them?” Do not fear, Jesus will look after everybody of his who puts their mind and heart on the kingdom first. We need not fear, for Jesus will look after everybody of his who puts their mind and heart of the kingdom first. We know my friends that Jesus doesn't hear the prayers of sinners. They who are living in sin cannot expect any kind of help from the Lord. People come to me to pray to God for them, that he will forgive them and know them more. Dear friends it is our responsibility to seek Jesus ourselves. He is not going to listen to somebody else on your behalf unless it's for the salvation of your soul, because you can't pray, or are in sin, or an unbeliever. It is your responsibility to pray to Jesus and to work out your life with him. It is your responsibility to put your mind first on the kingdom of God so he can provide for you, because when you are not living the right way, and ask someone to pray to God on your behalf, that isn't going to bring you closer to Jesus. People can pray for you and ask the Lord to shake you up and get you right into the light, but I'm telling you to seek of the Lord now, so you draw near to him in a relationship. You have to listen to his chiding, to his punishment. Many believers often go through a lot of hardship and trial and troubles in this world, because they don't follow Jesus, and he chastising them, but they are not listening. If we go through our life, and we continue not to listen, then we are going to just die in our troubles and end up in hell! That's what will happen. You know, dear friends, if we do not live a holy life and we die in our troubles and sins, then we will not inherit the kingdom of God. There's no way to the kingdom except through following Jesus. He is the only way as hard as that might be to people. You can only be saved if you repent and follow Jesus and you put the kingdom first. Not only that, you can only be saved if you then endure and run the race of faith with endurance, not falling away.

Paul said that he beat his flesh into submission daily, lest after having run the race and lead so many people to the Lord, he should be disqualified at the end. He didn't want to be disqualified through sin, and sin will disqualify born-again Christians from finishing the race of faith and receiving the prize of eternal life.

If you live in sin and you don't repent, and you fall away to the old ways, then you're going to end up disqualified because you didn't practice self-control. You must add to your faith Peter chapter 1, where we read to add to your faith daily in increasing measure godliness, self-control, endurance, perseverance.

We have got to add these things to our faith daily, my friends, then we will not fall away. There's no point in listening to doubt and go back to your life and losing the faith, like I see so many people I've known in the past. They start so well, they're on fire for the Lord, and then over time the fire die down and they fall away. I don't see them anymore and next I hear about them, they are following the world again! That's how it is for many believers of this time. I have seen what happened in the past where so many people start but do not finish.

Jesus said, “Strive ye therefore to enter the narrow gate, for many people I tell you will try to enter that gate but will be not able to.” Many people will begin the race of faith but then not as many will finish. Jesus said, “Wide and broad is the way to destruction. Many are they who go by that way.”

The way to life they didn't find it. Why is it few? It is because so many people are called, but few people are chosen. So many people try to enter the narrow gate and are not able to. Why? It's because they don't keep the faith. They don't put the Kingdom of Jesus first. They don't add to their faith daily in increasing measure endurance, perseverance, godliness, self-control, and so they fall away. They are the one of the many who try to enter the narrow door, but are unable to.

All of us on this earth currently are striving to enter the narrow gate including myself. We enter it if we maintain the way of faith and we put the kingdom first and we live for the Lord. We will enter, if we remain connected to Jesus in our faith. We are all going to enter if we remained connected to the vine, if we remain bearing fruits, and we don't wither up.

People say you can't become ‘un-born-again.’ they say yet they don't even listen to the words of Jesus where it is so clearly stated that not everybody who says Lord, Lord will be saved. Jesus said not everybody will enter the narrow gate who strives. Jesus clearly said that the branch in me that doesn't bear fruit and withers, is cut off!

Now, how do you think that branch was there in the first place? Do you think you are always connected to Jesus Christ the vine? Certainly not! The apostle Paul writes about being grafted into the vine as a wild olive shoot. Somebody is grafted into the tree. I tell you why: it is because they became ‘born-again.’ They became new by faith. They turned to Jesus, repented and had faith. They became grafted into the vine.

Why then can you wither up and be cut off, if you can never lose your salvation! ~ like people say. Let me tell you something: we don't have salvation on this earth until we have endured and received the crown of salvation at the end of the race of faith. There is no such thing as saved now. We are all striving now to enter the narrow gates. Those of us who love Jesus and have connected to him by faith, we are grafted into the vine right now. We have the living flowing spirit of God flowing through us enabling us to bear fruits of self-control, good fruits of endurance and perseverance and overcoming temptation where able, to love each other and to forgive those who don't repent. We are able to turn the other cheek. We are able to give to the needy and to show mercy and do the good things of the Spirit standing up for Jesus on this earth. We are able to bear these fruits and the Father is pleased with us and he prunes us to make us bear more fruit, that we continue to mature in the faith.

We may stumble sometimes, but we get up and repent. We continue, however we are also able to cut ourselves off from this living vine and stop bearing fruit. We are able to cut ourselves off and get cut off. Those who withered and did get cut off, they are burned! That means they became no more. They were done away with. They are no longer a part of the vine, even though they had been in the vine beforehand.

We must understand, my friend, that we can indeed lose our born-again status, and we can fall to the fire as Jesus said. We must heed his words and let them push us to fear God and not become complacent in the faith, but to be ever watchful that we may make sure that we are on the narrow way in godly fear, a godly fear of God. That is what I want to strike into your hearts today: a reverence and fear of God, knowing we will be saved, if we remain faithful and heed God’s word pushing us evermore to be faithful, pushing you to be more serious about Jesus everyday, and take your salvation seriously knowing that God doesn't take half measures.

Remember, my friends, the parable of the servants, where the Master gave each of them some money according to their abilities, and what happened was the master went away on a long journey and he left those servants to do with the money what they wished. The first invested and they got five fold in return, and the other 10 fold. But there was one who did nothing. He bore no fruit from the money that was given. He hit it in the ground and when the Master returned, he said to that servant, “Why did you not at least deposit the money in with the bankers? Have this lazy servant bound and cast into the outer-darkness.” And he was cast into the outer-darkness where there was a weeping and gnashing of teeth. That was the end of that servant.

My friend, so it is with us. We have been given the faith of Jesus Christ, the gift of the gospel, we have been given the spiritual Holy Spirit of God enabling us and giving us power to complete our work on this earth for the kingdom, and the Master left Jerusalem back in the early time, and he went away on a long journey, and he will come back and he will call you all and me to account for what we have done with his gifts that he has given us. Did we use them then we increase the kingdom?

When he returns, unfaithful unfruitful servants will be bound and cast into the outer-darkness. But when he returns and finds people who did endure and persevere in the faith, who have done something with what he gave them, even as little as what he gave them, then there will be rewards. To those who he gave a lot, much will be required. But to people to whom he gave a little, little will be required. It depends on the measure he is giving you. The measure he has given you, you should use. Somebody who is given a large ministry, and they travel the world using the opportunities he has given them, with the power he gave them there is a reward. But some people they don't do that. They had a calling on their life and don't obey it.

Some people he gave them a little faith and so they exercise that little faith in their daily life, within their family, and in the workplace wherever they are. They too are pleasing to the Lord because they stood for Jesus in the little faith they had. They kept the faith. It depends, my friends, on whether or not we are serious about the kingdom, or whether we will bear fruit.

Jesus will come back and he will find other people who followed the way of faith, who invested in the Kingdom, and they worked for the kingdom, and started to increase what was given, but then became bankrupt; they left the way of faith, they lost all what they were given. When Jesus comes back for them, they will be empty-handed, bankrupt, and they will receive no pleasure before God, my friends, no pleasure at all. I hope they find a mercy, but the lazy, worthless servant was is cast out into the outer-darkness. I really do hope they get mercy, but I don't like their chances, and I would advise every one of you to never take chances with the Lord. Be sure you are making him pleased with how you live daily, and you will never fall. You will never find displeasure before God if you strive to please him. You can only strive to believe Jesus, if you're serious about it, and you’ll by no means find displeasure with the Lord for he delights in those who are zealous about him.

Zealous believers don't want to sin. They don't want to do evil. When they're tempted to follow the lust of the flesh, they are zealous to put them out. When they are tempted to strike someone who strikes of them in their temper, they are zealous to obey the words of Jesus and not do that. When they are tempted or the situation comes into life that someone has to repay them, and so they want to try and squeeze that person to repay them, they remember the words of Jesus who says to not ask in return for money when given.

Jesus says to give freely, don't seek in return. When somebody asks you to walk 1 mile (carrying their burden, a soldier in those days could ask that) they can do 2 miles, because there are zealous about doing the words of Jesus. So instead of getting angry with someone making them do something for somebody, they go and do a little more than they were required because there are zealous about the words of Jesus. And it is those people who find pleasure with the Lord Jesus Christ and o whom he will say to them, “Come in to the kingdom my faithful servants, because you have been trustworthy over a little, I will make you trustworthy over a lot” (put in charge over a lot). Jesus wants to find us as trustworthy servants who have done well the will of the master. It doesn't matter if you live a wicked life and you've squandered all your time, wasting your time and not living for Jesus. What matters is from TODAY you follow Jesus…not tomorrow. Though you must not have in your heart that you are going to put off being serious into the future just because Jesus said those who work in the vineyard all day, they got they got paid the same as those who worked only in the last hour. Jesus said those who were first will be last, and the last first. What he is talking about are those who lived a wicked life, but decided to turn to Jesus at the last hours. It is some encouragement for you, that you will get rewarded if you stay zealous. So, I want to exhort everybody: do not fall away, do not listen and give ear to Satan. He is there to kill your faith. He is there to stop you from entering the kingdom of God. He is there to get you to become unfruitful servants. He is there to get you to fall short and not enter the kingdom by the narrow gate. So do not give ear to satan, otherwise you will fall away. As I said before I've seen a lot of believers start well, they walked the way of faith, but then they fall away; they fall away to the lust of the flesh, the desires of life. They fall away each to their own temptations. They fall to sin. There is no being born again and being a totally secure down on earth. Once you're born again and grafted into the vine, you must remain and abide in the vine, otherwise you will wither.You will wither, you will get CUT OFF if you remain withered. People say to me, “You're preaching a false gospel, for you say that you can lose your salvation.” People say, “Once you're born again you can never become un-born-again.” You know, my friends, we know very well that once we become born again, we are grafted into the vine, but if we wither, we will get cut off as a Jesus said in the book of John chapter 15! A branch that withers is connected to the vine, but will get cut-off as Jesus said. In the parable of the fruitless fig tree, after the gardener has tended to the tree, and after time if it STILL does not bear fruit, it will be cut down and the cast into the fire. The axe is lying at the roots of every tree in the garden that does not bear fruit as it is written in the words of Jesus Christ the Messiah. Let us believe those words, and lay the foundation of our faith in the words of Jesus Christ. People say, “The apostles brought in the new Gospel, and the words of Jesus were only for Israel and the old covenant back then.” This is untrue, because the words of Jesus are eternal, an eternal covenant, and the last day (he spoke about in that parable) has not come. That's in the future. I don't know how far away into the future it is, but I know that it's in the future and that they have not come to fulfilment yet, therefore the words of Jesus has not come yet to full completion, and he said, “By my words, these words that I have spoken, those words you will be judged on the last day.” He said that these words will judge this generation. It is the words of Jesus that we will be judged by, my friends, not the words of Paul, or Peter, nor by the words of the old covenant. Not by any other words but by the words of Jesus Christ. They will judge this generation on the last day.

Jesus will be looking to see if: did you turn the other cheek? Did you bear fruit? On the last day, these will be the things you'll be judged about. Did you strive faithfully on the narrow way? Did you put the kingdom of God first? Did you forgive those who sinned against you? Did you practice forgiveness?

Did you forget Jesus said those words? You don't want to forget! They are all relevant words for today, Paul only expanded on Jesus's words. Paul expanded on the truth: that Jesus came to do away with the old covenant and brought in the new covenant, and Paul said exactly the same things as Jesus meant, to stay vigilant, stay watchful, for do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?

Salvation is by faith, not works of the law, rather living by faith. That's how you get salvation, not through works of the law; works of circumcision, works of the sabbath, works of being a good Torah keeper. It's only through a living relationship with Jesus Christ by faith having the Holy Spirit in you.

As Paul said, “Did you get the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses?” No, the Spirit came by baptism into his name, the new covenant which is not the old covenant. You receive the Holy Spirit by faith, and that's why it's not by works.

Did you stop sinning by faith? Or did you stop sinning by your own works? Were you able to turn away from your evil by your own works? You are not able to regenerate your heart by your works. That's where the new covenant comes in, that's by faith, not works, that we were able to clean ourselves up. Not by our own efforts, because you cannot clean up when you're not regenerated. We are only able to be cleaned up when we came to Jesus by faith and he gave us a new way.

I didn’t become free from my sinning paths by my power, otherwise it's by works and can boast, rather I became free from sin because I turned to Jesus Christ and he changed my life. He is powerful and he set me free from sin. By faith I became regenerated and grafted into the vine, not by my own works but by the power of God through the name of Jesus Christ through faith. I didn't see Jesus, but I had faith in him and then he came into my life and he filled me with the Holy Spirit.

You see, my friends, this is the wisdom of the kingdom of God. Are we listening now? Are we listening? Let's learn about the kingdom of God today. I got this wisdom from God. Everybody who draws near the Lord and is serious about him, he will teach them the wisdom of truth. I'm only here to push you to the Lord so that you will learn from him. He will open up your heart to understanding, praise the Lord!

You don't need to learn how to preach the truth. Somebody said to me awhile ago, that they were learning how to give a sermon. They were learning how to serve God by their organisation’s teachings. You know, my friend, they're only learning to be puppets and parrots of the church that they following. You cannot learn how to preach from being in schools of men. The only way to learn how the truth goes and to be able to speak the truth, is not through knowledge and study, otherwise I could not be here because I don't have a lot of knowledge and I don’t do much study. I do not study theology. The way to learn how to give the give the truth, is to be led by the Holy Spirit; to be schooled by the Holy Spirit in disciple’s school. He is the giver of words of life that we have when we came to Jesus our situation.

The teacher is the Holy Spirit. Jesus said that he speaks the words to you what comes from God. If anybody lacks wisdom we don't go to mankind and study hard, we go to God in faith in prayer. He gives all wisdom freely to those who ask. If you want to grow in grace, grow in wisdom, you don't need to study, you need to go to Jesus in prayer.

There is nothing wrong with studying scriptures, and history to have a broader understanding about things, however if you want to have the wisdom of the kingdom of God, then you need to go to God and he will give you freely what you need to know. So you don't need to be schooled of man to give the truth.

If you want to work for Jesus Christ, you must not be ordained by the church, because it means you're not working for Jesus you're working for the church. If you want to be working for Jesus Christ, you have to be ordained by Jesus Christ, otherwise you can't work for him. You can't do the work of garden in the kingdom of God without the Holy Spirit! We've got to be ordained by God not by mankind.

Jesus called us to be citizens of the kingdom, representations of the kingdom, serious about him so that we may give God a good name on this earth, give glory to the Father. That means that we live for the Lord and we don't go on in sin joining the world in their sin. We obey the Lord and all we do, hallelujah! Amen... ...
