God's Sword of Truth - The Word

Christian Responsibility

By The Holy Spirit's Disciple, Raymond Laginess

The born again Christian cannot save the world,..."This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief." - I TIMOTHY 1:15. ...They cannot feed the world,....They cannot change the wrath of the Lord that is coming! - "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience." - EPHESIANS 5:6. The falling away is taking place - "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first..." II THES. 2:3 and the apostate system (enemy of the Gospel) is here to destroy - "For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:" PHILIPPIANS 3:18. The Christian family is underground, waiting for rapture!

A Christian group or fellowship should stay close together and help one another - but help just those that are true Christian....the rest are on their own. Your blessings are yours and true Christians have all in common. The Holy Spirit takes care of the Christian family and you will know when to help others by the guidance from the Holy Spirit.

The world will have many problems: famine - pestilence - the poor - the sick - persecution - sorrow - tribulation , - just a few of the conditions of the last age. We are not here to save the lost...as Jesus tells us in MATTHEW 24:7-15. The lost souls of the world will go through much suffering and tribulation, and it is needed for them to go through such things if they are ever to find peace of the soul. If they find Christ through their path of pain then it is all worth it.

Satan's time during the great tribulation, prior to the wrath of the Lord, will come to pass and you do not want to be around when it comes....the heavens and earth will shake.

Christians, trust the Holy Spirit! For the Lord knows His own....therefore, who can harm you? Not all who say "Lord, Lord" shall be saved and not all who say that they are Christian are of the Real Family in Christ. You will know them by their fruit. - MATTHEW 7:16,20 - "Ye shall know them by their fruits. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." The Word is true, it is written and is so. Test all spirits, watch out for holy men or religious false prophets. "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." - MATTHEW 24:24.

Do not be fooled, you are a sinner and not worthy, and you cannot work for, or earn, your salvation....you cannot even follow your own light, as there are none righteous....NOT ONE! Keep in mind, you can't help the Lord in His plan for salvation. You can be used, through the example of your life, by sharing your hope and by being a good witness. Do as the Lord tells us in the 9 fruits of the Spirit - "But the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MEEKNESS, TEMPERANCE: against such there is no law." - GAL.5:22-23. There are special crowns given to those whom the Lord chooses. You do not need to feel that only you can help, or that you need to perform some self righteous act. The Holy Spirit knows whom to choose, train and send wherever, as He guides us all in the Lord's plan. All those who are saved or who are going to be saved, WILL BE SAVED. No one will be left behind.

"....The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel." - MARK 1:15. The Lord forgives all who ask "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace".. Your heart must be the Lords. You must know Him by love, and live Him everyday.

Religions of men are always working to save a lost world and souls by works or self righteousness. They are continually trying to make the world good enough for Christ to return to. They don't understand that Christ has to return to make the world safe for His church. There is only one faith, one body of Christ and only one way to salvation - JESUS CHRIST - and you must all agree with the WORD - or you cannot walk together - there is only ONE WAY.

Read the Word, but what you do read, LIVE it every day of your life. Separate yourself from flesh and the world. DO NOT BE AN ENEMY OF THE LORD BY LIVING IN THE WORLD - IT'S SATAN'S HOME!

To be a Christian you must make decisions - big ones, and in most cases it goes against SELF, FLESH and the WORLD. You will be loved or hated as Christ said. You must hold fast and overcome religion and self righteousness. To live Christ is to die to self and the world. Your flesh family will think you are nuts and possibly disown you. But the bottom line is, "Where is the eternal place that you want to be, with Jesus in heaven, or with Satan (a fallen angel) in hell?"

It's most important to keep in mind, that in the heart of the Christian it is not this life that we are looking for, but the good life that is to come with Christ in heaven, the home of our Lord and Savior. It is written, through much tribulation do we enter the kingdom - "...continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God." ACTS 14:22! AMEN!
