I Was A Worldly Christian

I want to talk about the ungodly path of many believers, in the hopes that if you are a believer listening to this message today, you yourself might get yourself separate and repent and live holy on the narrow way before it is too late. I used to be a worldly Christian, I used to pursue my SPORTS. I used to listen to ROCK AND RAP MUSIC. I had a nice stash of CDs in my room. I used to watch the TV everyday. I used to watch the MOVIES. I would go to horror movies, all kinds of movies and I would be entertained by all the blasphemous things on there, the VIOLENCE, the LUST, watching people SIN AND BREAK GOD’s COMMANDS. Then, Jesus pulled me out of that life. He warned me that if I was not separate from the world, I would not be with him when he returns. Not only that, HELL AWAITS those who do not live for Jesus in a serious dedication in their daily life. Since then, I have focused on living a life for Christ on the narrow way, and many believers attack and hate these truths because they themselves are living like I used to live. They are happy to turn on the rock music, even though GOD HATES IT.

They are happy to turn on the TV and watch all the nonsense there, even though GOD HATES THAT TOO. They are happy to watch the ungodly movies that wicked people make, even that makes God ANGRY. These ungodly christians like I used to be, are happy to live a life on the BROAD PATH TO DESTRUCTION, and so they come to me and try to FIND FAUL in EVERYTHING, because they themselves do not wish to turn from the path of destruction. Let me tell you dear friends, that if you live a life going after these things, being entertained by this worldly society and not living a serious life for Christ, not being separate from their ways, if you arnt, then the place you are going to end up is called the OUTER DARKNESS WHERE THERE IS A WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH. Because you were not serious about living for Christ. You posted on Facebook scriptures, and went to church, and had all these marvellous little pictures on Facebook about following Christ, yet you yourself never followed him.

You didnt even know him, he didnt speak to you. You just were happy to TURN UP THE VOLUME of the rock music, to SIT DOWN IN FRONT OF THE TV. To WASTE YOUR LIFE, doing these things, having a “good life” instead of spending your time serving Jesus in prayer, going out to the wilderness, fasting, getting to know him, doing what it takes to put out besetting sin in your life, fighting through temptation from the devil, crucifying the flesh and all its desires, and then in all you do in this world, such as your responsibilities, you DO THEM WELL for the Lord. You are an honest person for your employer who doesn’t slack as soon as they have turned their back. You get the highest grades you can when you study, you are seriously dedicated to Christ and his way. You are not interested in all these foolish sidetracks of the ungodly. When you do your work (for money) for the Lord, you do so as led by him. You might think it might be right to do work one way, but he might open another door for you. You look after your family and all like the worldly unbelievers do, and you love them like they do, BUT you love Jesus now, which means he COMES FIRST, which means there is going to be a shift in your priorities. No longer is it going to be living for the house and the car and education from the children. These things are important, but they no longer dominate your thinking, because you know the Lord will provide.

You no longer live for going on pleasure, and vacation. If you must go, let me tell you that when you love Jesus you DONT REALLY WANT TO GO, you just want to be in the wilderness praying. I know it is hard when you have families, and so a part of us GROANS but that is because we have the way of Christ in us where we love him more than them. Dear friends, if you are like the JUSTIN BEIBER CHRISTIAN, you will end up in the outer darkness, if you are in word only saying you are saved by grace and holding onto certain scriptures, living the ungodly lives, being part of the same society, then you will end up in the outer darkness, and you will not find salvation in Christ. For as it is written, the Lord God HATES the ways of this world, and the people who are worthy of Jesus Christ as he proclaimed them worthy, were those who kept their robes unspotted from this world. The Lord said, “They shall walk with me in white, for they are worthy.” Leave the ungodly things. Get to know him in prayer, serious living, dedication on the narrow way, and he will lead you to the eternal kingdom of God. But continue to follow the sinful Christians of this generation in their SPORTS, ROCK MUSIC, and their ENTERTAINMENT of the world, being a part of this society, then you will not find the kingdom of God, but you will find the outer darkness where there is a weeping and gnashing of teeth....
