God's Sword of Truth - The Word
Without hope there is no life, there is no faith. Without faith there is no reason or purpose of being. You are a lost soul forever and have lost Jesus. Only by faith in Christ can you seek and find the TRUE MESSIAH. Which Jesus do you know? Is it the "religious" Jesus, or the "true" Jesus from the House of David of Israel? You can never find peace or salvation in the religious one, which is of the flesh and the world, he is antichrist. You must test all spirits to see if they are built on solid ground or sand. You must judge by your heart, not your head. Keep in mind and heart that Jesus is Israel, not Catholic.
Christianity is not a matter of choice in a religion of man, nor is it a personal choice, it is living truth by the Word of the Lord. All churches of men, their religions, and beliefs are false. They have added to and taken away from the truth of the Word and it is wrong. You can’t be saved in a church. You must have the church in your heart and live it everyday, not practice it once in awhile.
Christ is the Cornerstone, the Foundation of salvation. There are no buildings, altars, sacrifices of men, no need of works, fellowships, or tithe. It’s free. However, you must make a free-will choice. You must live it in your heart. There is no baptism, membership, attendance or works. You cannot buy it and there is no way to earn it. You don’t fight for it, but you do die for it. You learn how to forgive ought against you or you can not be forgiven - "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." - Matt. 14-15.
Custom and tradition have no place in Christianity. There are no special days to keep, no holy days, no customs to follow, or holy places to visit. Be not an idolater. There are no laws, ordinances or duties, no priests, nuns, holy people or places. We are all sinners, none worthy, none righteous, not one. Your goodness is but dung without Jesus, and hell is your goal and future home.
Salvation by altar call gets you nothing. Baptism in a church system gets you a membership in their system, not heaven. You must have LOVE, FAITH and BELIEVE in HIS Word, not man’s word, and then you must live it. Christianity is a way of life - not of the world. Do you know the real Jesus or are you religious in name, i.e. Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, etc.?
If you keep the law, the ten commandments, and go to church in a building of man, you will then be judged by the law and shall be making GRACE null and void and Jesus is nothing to you.
If you find Christ by fear of the end times, you are wise and on the right path. You do not want to face the wrath of the Lord. WHEN you find salvation is not important, but, finding it in the last hour is truth, and when you do find it, live it everyday. "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." - I John 2:15. Do not join a religious system or group, come out from them. You are one in Christ. You are now underground. They shall put you in prison over His name, and they shall hate you without a cause. Do you get the message? "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."- 2 Tim. 2:15. Let the Holy Spirit guide you, live by your heart, and follow it.
There are men chosen by the Holy Spirit, taught by the Spirit to teach the Word and you shall know them by their fruits, they do not charge, it is free. Under Christianity, you are free, no fee. The Holy Spirit meets your needs. You cannot rob the Lord, He owns everything, and he does not need your money. You can, however, give alms to the poor when you are led to do so by the spirit, and only when you see the need yourself. Give what it takes at the time, and take no tax write-off for it. Let only the Lord see it and He will give you your reward. Your family in Christ comes first, let all be equal, keep the faith.
It’s no wonder so many people are lost and going to hell. They have been deceived by a "religious" Satan, an antichrist! They believe there are many roads to Christ and heaven. Most do not want to go, they’d rather stay here on earth with the creation (their family, parents, children, etc.). They have been blinded and do not know Jesus, the Creator. They do not know where the real value is. Think about it, the Creator of all things or that which is created? Why settle for a few things when you can have all things which can be given by the Creator of all things. I don’t want the gold of this life, I shall walk on streets of pure gold in heaven, understand? It’s not this life that counts, but the next. This one has death, but the next life is forever. Which are you living for? You make the choice.
There is only one name under heaven known by the Lord God that is recognized, and it’s called Christian. Christian, as in Christ-like. One who knows Jesus believes in Him, has faith in Him, carries Him in their heart and lives for Him. There is no religion, denomination, sect, or cult to it. All those belonging to it are the body of Christ. You cannot join it in this life, it’s automatic by faith when you accept the true MESSIAH.
There are no works a man can do that Jesus hasn’t already done for us. It is complete in Him, it is finished. There are no other choices. You can’t add to it by the flesh. Admit that you are nothing and a sinner saved by grace. Never think you are something, you have no rights. You are the least of all and servant to all. Make peace with all, love and forgive all. Be as Jesus was, live Him in all things.
Wherever you find yourself in this life, occupy as a witness. Let the Holy Spirit guide your heart. You shall fail at times, but never give up. Satan cannot win unless you let him. Grow in spirit and in truth and overcome evil with good.
Blessed is he or she who looks for His coming, let all things be to His honor and glory. Make no mistake, the Lord knows His and they know Him. If you love Him, know and keep His Word. Soon, all shall see Him. Are you ready?
I give you a WARNING! Keep in mind that we have a sin nature from Adam & Eve, which means that we are able to sin without Satan (our enemy). He is always around to make a sin grow into serious accountability where it must be repented. Keep in mind, temptation is not a sin, but don’t allow Satan in to develop it into sin. We will have this sin nature while in the flesh and in the world. We all need the Messiah. Jesus, having died on the cross, shed His blood for us which covers our sins when we repent and there is no redemption of sin without the shed blood of Christ.
If you look around, you’ll see that time is short and forever is near. Make your choice today. After all is said and done - Will people know you as a Christian, or a religious person? Will you be a church go'er, or a Christ of the Word follower? Were you loved by few, or hated by all because of your salt? Were you a peace maker, or a war fighter? Does Jesus know you? Do you know Him?
"TO HIM THAT OVERCOMETH WILL I GRANT TO SIT WITH ME IN MY THRONE, EVEN AS I ALSO OVERCAME, AND AM SET DOWN WITH MY FATHER IN HIS THRONE. HE THAT HATH AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT SAITH UNTO THE CHURCHES." - REV. 3:21-22.
