DO YOU HAVE THE LOVE OF JESUS YET?

Jesus is love and he expects you to have love. If you really want to strive after Jesus and get to know him, he is going to fill you with his love where you will be tolerant of people and their mistakes, and you wont judge and harshly criticize others and you will be able to forgive your enemies and warn people of the truth of Jesus Christ and his salvation and forgiveness of sins. You will be be able to leave all your sins because you love God and you will able to turn away from chasing after the world because you love God. These are all the things that people have, do, when they have the love of Jesus in them. The love of the father.

Now we read in James that those who love the world do not have the love of the father in them. Now many people and maybe many of you who are listening to this don't know Jesus. You have not got his love in your heart. You are full of anger and criticism, fighting, slander, sin, all kinds of vices because you don't have Jesus with you yet. Then it is time to seek to know Jesus so he can perfect you in his love. Jesus will perfect you so that you can walk in holiness, righteousness and love. He will give you the power and the strength to obey his leading in the spirit so that you can turn away from all your vices and your flesh, and instead live his love in your life towards everybody and be filled with the love of God. Do you have his love yet?...

PROPHETIC VISION: JESUS SAYS BE READY OR BE LEFT BEHIND

Will you heed? God has a prophetic word for the church. In 2nd week in march 2008 all of a sudden I didnt feel so good. I have some back neck and stomach pain. So that day I put some music down stairs and I went upstairs and lay listening to the music. As I listened all of a sudden I felt Gods presence coming over me and my left arm went up towards the cealing as I law and my arm started to slap my stomach and the Holy Spirit came over me and I started to speak in toungues. It was a powerful presence of the Holy Spirit and hte Holy Spirit was shouting through my mouth loudly.

So this went for half an hour, the Holy Spirit shouting in different tongues and was very clear and powerful and all of a sudden from the speaking in tongues the language start to change from tongues to my Romanian tongue. My tongue I was born into. And the Holy Spirit prophecied saying speaking to hte church: My children come out from the world I am at the door. My children come out from the world the door is open. My children come out from the world I am close to you. My children come out from the world I am calling you. My children coem out from the world I love you. My children come out from the world I love you. My childrne come out from the world the time is now. My children come out from the world I step into the door. My children come out from the world be ready or you will be left behind says the Lord....And then I come back to my normal self. The Holy Spirit stopped speaking and I got up from the bed. My left arm stopped and I sat on the side of the bed and I thought about what actually happened. so I said Lord what is the meaning of all this? And I understood through the Spirit that God is calling his church out from the world.

His children to come out from the Lukewarm church. We all know God called us to be HOT or to be COLD. But he wants us to be hot. We all know today how many things interfere with our lifestyle, all the desires of the world and temptations what satan has to offer us. But our Lord wants us to come to him and be separate. He warns us we live in the last moments. He says the time is NOW. the time is NOW, COME OR YOUR WILL BE LEFT BEHIND says the Lord....

Christians Do Get Cut Off By God

Jesus talked about the parable of the fig tree. He said that the owner of the garden came and he said I'm have been coming to this fig tree for three years now and it still hasn't borne fruit! Cut it down, it is wasting ground. But the gardener said no no let me fertilise it and care for it for a year and if it still doesn't bear fruit then you can cut it down and have it cast into the fire. Dear friends this is talking about Christians who do not bear fruit. When you are doing sin you are a sinner Christian or not. And sinners do not bear good fruit. They are going to be cut down because the father there comes the his tree in his vineyard, (we're not talking about pagans were talking about Christians) and he sees your tree and it's got either rotten fruit on it or no fruit because you don't serve Jesus nor obey him. And what happens is you are going to get cut down if you don't heed the fertilizer and the water that Jesus puts on you to try and get you to the produce fruit. And what happens is many Christians end up being cut down and thrown into the fire because they don't bear good fruit and the father God never finds fruit on their tree. Be serious! Go and obey Jesus. Do what he says and then you will produce fruit worthy of the kingdom of God....

HOW I GOT SAVED (short interview)

So Robert why do you believe in Jesus? Well 3 years ago, I was following my own life and careers and focusing on what I wanted to do in life, and I was not in any way going to follow Jesus. I was a Christian professing, I went to church, I had asked the Lord Jesus Christ into my heart, but I wasnt serious about the Lord. It was by supernatural power of God, that he started dealing with my life and he brought me to point. He started taking things out of my life and my health and my peace and my worldly mind. He made me feel very depressed. I was at a point I just didn't know what to do in life and finally at a low point in my life I decided to cry out to the Lord Father God in heaven, and asked him to help me. And so I cried out to the Lord then I went home. I felt a little peace. Then a few months later I came across a brother, a Nigerian. He was talking about his testimony with the occult and satan and how he knew real Christians and how christians lived a life of holiness and obeying Jesus in all they did.

I was struck to the heart and convicted because I knew I wasn't following Jesus and I professed him but I didn't live for him. I was just living my own life. I didn't deny myself, pick up my cross and follow him like he said. And so I started to look around for the truth and I came across another brother online and this brother was saying how we must follow Jesus and not the churches and we must obey his words and so I got on my knees and I prayed to the Lord and asked him into my heart and repented of my sins and I decided to be serious about the Lord on that day and miraculously he set me free from sin that day and I had this new peace come in to my heart. I felt peace that I didn't have before and instantly my mind trouble I had, depression and sadness and all these things disappeared and I knew that day I was a new person. And from that day I started to pray more and seek more and I started to learn to hear the voice of the Lord and he started to show me things in sometimes a dream or he would speak into my spirit. He would say "Put your testimony online".

So I did that and he continued to lead me to tell the way to salvation and I am striving on the way to salvation and I will get there with Jesus if I stay with him and that is my mission is to stay in the faith, believe in Jesus till the end and not depart back to my old ways. So that is my testimony, my short testimony. And I pray everybody listening, if you don't know Jesus for yourself today, you know about him or you read your bible, but you don't KNOW him, and you still live in sin or worldliness or you still just follow your own life and you feel very bad in your mind, I implore you to do what I did, to get on your knees and seek Jesus. Pray to him and be serious about him. Read his words in the bible, go get baptised and dedicate you life to be serious about him and he will start to work in your life little bit by little bit and you will start to feel his hand in your life and things will happen for you and your life will change and if you stay with him until the end he is going to take you to the kingdom of Heaven. Hallelujah. ...

The Withered Branch

We who follow the Lord, we can have comfort in these end times and the Lord will provide for us in more and more supernatural ways. And we don't know when our last days will be. I know there was Christians in world war two, that was a terrible time worldwide, and they were supernaturally provided for by Jesus. I know of Christians in the other's places of the world that have extreme poverty due to government control, and they were looked after by the Lord. You see the Lord always looks after his people and he provides for those who lay faith in him. Now why can I say that with certainty? Say that because the Lord God himself said he said in Ezekiel he said that the person who lays faith in him is like somebody who is planted by, is like a tree planted by the stream and the drought comes and the hard times come, but this person always bears fruit because his roots go into the living water. Now I can't remember if that was in Ezekiel, but it was the words of the Lord anyway, but we read on that the man who doesn't trust in God and makes his own arm his strength, he makes flesh his strength, he looks for man's wisdom and help. He is like the man that grows in the desert Bush in the middle of the parched places of the desert where the salt bushes are, he's got no hope. And when we rely on our own arm and our own strength then the Lord doesn't help us. Dear friends we need to have our roots in the living water.

I want to read to you a parable from Jesus. Now Jesus has had just told the Jews to repent. He said: I tell you unless you repent you will all likewise perish…. then he spoke this parable: A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard and he came seeking fruit on it and he didn't find any and then he said to the keeper of the vineyard; “look for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree and I found none, cut it down. Why does it use up the ground?” but he answered and said to him, “Sir leave it alone this year, I'll dig around it and fertilize it and if it bears fruit then we will not have to cut it down”. I want to put your attention on to this parable because there are many believers who believe that true Christians will never end up in the fires of hell. But these trees in the vineyard they are not pagans, they are people who believe in Jesus; trees in the vineyard. Okay now this tree wasn't bearing any fruit so that this tree is likened unto a believer of Jesus who believes, but they don't bear any fruit. Jesus comes to their tree and doesn't see any fruit there. And the father in heaven comes again next year and the next year and still no fruit and the father says: “let us cut this tree out of the ground and cast it away”. And then Jesus says, “no no, let me water this tree”.

Because Jesus remember is here to save people. So Jesus says; let me water this tree and if it still doesn't bear fruit after one year then cut it down. So what Jesus does and he works in your heart and you try to push you to repent for a year. And he brings about all these situations to bring your life down so bad that you need to cry out to him and seek to know him. Some people they just don't learn and once again they just don't bear any fruit. What happens? They end up getting cut down. I want to read about this little further where Jesus says this, he says in John 15, John Chapter 15: he said if anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away as a branch that withers and such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire and burned, for I am the good vine and and you are the branches and my father is the gardener. And a gardener cuts off every branch in me that does not bear fruit and every withered branch. If you abide in me and my words abide in you you will ask and things that may be done for you that my father will be glorified. He said apart from me you can do nothing. He says he cannot bear fruit. A branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine. And then he goes on to say that the branches that don't abide in the vine they wither and the father cuts them off. So these branches I want to talk about today are Christians. They're not pagans and unbelievers, they are not atheists, not Muslims or Buddhists.

These branches are Christians, they are abiding in Jesus and what happens is they cut themselves off from Jesus and they wither on the vine and the father doesn't allow withered branches to stay on the vine so he cuts them off. And what happens Jesus said that these branches are gathered up and they're thrown into the fire. So you have to be grafted into Jesus to bear good fruit. To be able to have the fruits of love to have the fruits of righteousness, and have the power to turn away from your sin if you if you have decided to repent and turn to the Lord. You have to do that if not you cannot bear good fruit! If you have decided to ask Jesus into your heart today, that means that you have been grafted into the vine and naturally if you don't cut yourself off from Jesus, you're going to naturally start to bear fruit, and the father will be pleased and he'll prune your branch and your going to bear more good fruit. Now Christians they cut themselves off from the good vine and their branch of withers. They must and must not do this! Now how do we cut ourselves off from the vine? That's when we go off on our own steam and power and do everything on our own and we just make our own life. We go back to the broader way we go back to our sin. We start sinning everyday. That's when we are cut off from Jesus. Because sin cuts you off from Jesus. One sin does! And so we have to repent and connect ourselves to Jesus again so we are not ringbarked off Jesus. You know the process of Ring barking don't you? The farmer get his axe and he cuts around a tree about 1 inch all the way around and it cuts off the water to the tree and the whole tree dies even though it still stands with its roots in the ground. Same with you; if you cut yourself off from the living water, then what happened is your branch, even though it still on the vine it withers, it dies all the leaves fall off and no fruit. And what happens is God will cut those branches off, gather them up and cast them into the fire. Dear friends we don't want to be cast into the fire do we?

We want to be just focused on the Lord Jesus Christ and obeying his commandments and doing his will! You see Jesus also likened Christians to the tree growing in his garden his garden, the Father's vineyard. Again this isn't pagans this isn't unbelievers, this is Christians people who believe in Jesus they get planted in the fathers vineyard. And the fig trees there and they are likened unto a figtree and the roots go into the ground, the good ground which is Jesus Christ. But the thing is this fig tree that we read about in Luke Chapter 13, didn't bear any fruit. It had lots of green leaves but didn't have no fruit. Now that was a Christian who just doesn't go out and work for the Lord Jesus Christ. They live their own life and they're not interested in being fruitful in the kingdom of God and what happens is the father sees they got no fruit and so he says, “let's cut this tree down is useless and a waste of ground place”. And Jesus pleads and says no because he is the keeper, the tender, and he tends these trees so they will bear fruit. He says I'm going to fertilize it. I'm going to help this tree to bear fruit and if it still doesn't in the year then we are going to cut it down and it will be thrown out of the garden. Christians say that no we can't ever lose our salvation once we invite Jesus into our heart, yet they don't realize that if they don't bear good fruit and if they cut themselves off from the vine, if their branch withers, that means they're going to be cut off and cast into the fire.

We have to be serious dear friends, about these truths from Jesus Christ. Now these aren't my own words Jesus himself said those things and you tell me if the branch that is grafted into the good vine of Jesus Christ, is that not a believer? Yes or no! If that branch decides to cut itself off from the living water from the vine and withers up, does not Jesus say that the branch would be cut off and thrown into the fire, destroyed! Yes. So we have to leave behind foolish thinking and instead embrace the teachings of Jesus Christ today. And obey the Lord. Now how do we bear this good fruit that we need for the kingdom of God so we don't get cut off? How do we do this? There is only one way dear friends and that is you must be connected to the good vine and you must be connected. You must have the living water come flowing into you. And people say well how does this happen? How do we get this living water just flowing into us? Well Jesus said how; he said if anybody wants to to drink of the living water and the bread of life, let him come to me. He said if anybody thirsts come to me and I'll give him water to drink and he'll never be thirst. If everybody hungers let him come to me, says the Lord Jesus Christ. He said that, the son of God. Let him come to me. So you have to go to Jesus.

Now people say well how can we go to Jesus? People we have to leave our fleshy minds at home. And we got to start thinking spiritually here. Because God and Jesus are Spirit and we are spirit, except we are just at home in a flesh body at the moment. But nevertheless you are a spirit. And so what you have to do is you have to close your eyes and pray and start seeking the Lord in faith. And if you believe in him but you don't bear good fruit and you're really close to being cut off, or cut down, it is time to pray and press in in prayer towards Jesus and don't stop until you find him. Don't stop until that peace and that power from heaven comes into your life. Don't stop. Because once the Lord in your life that's when you change instantly. That's when the trouble goes out of your mind. That's when you be set free from sin. Suddenly your free from sin. You don't have a desire anymore to go and smoke cigarets, or go and drink. You've lost your desire to swear and curse. You've lost your desire for many things. And sure maybe these things can come back and try and tempt you, you know Satan is never a good loser and he does try and come back and try and get a foothold in you again. And this is where you have to be zealous because you can become cut off from the living water again and your branch can wither up if you listen to Satan. You can stop bearing fruit and become useless Green Tree, if you listen to temptation, go follow it. You got to turn away dear friends in your heart and your mind. Mind and heart. That's how we love the Lord with all our heart and all our mind. And we can love sin with all our heart and all our mind too. Depends who you want to be loyal to join to. Do you want to obey the first commandment to love the Lord your God all your hearts and all your mind? Or do you want to love sin is all your heart and mind, because that's how we love things, we love them in our hearts and minds. So we have to decide to reject our hearts and minds of our love of sin within the heart and within the mind, and turn it down in temptation. And once you do that and you give yourself to the Lord Jesus, you stay in the power right! No I am not saying you'll never be harassed by Satan or your own flesh you will. You'll get harassed and you may be discouraged at times, but take heart once you follow Jesus he has overcome the world.

You know even if you face terrible persecution or whatever. Jesus has overcome the world and his power will flow into you. So you're going to be able to turn the other cheek to your enemy, you are going to be able to forgive people you don't want to forgive. I know it's hard to forgive sometimes especially when nobody stops their evil against you and they don't repent, but we've got to forgive still. When brethren for instance divide against you that might hurt you. But we are to forgive them pray for them and we have to hold no malice in our hearts. This is the power of the Lord Jesus enabling us to do these things bearing the good fruits for the kingdom of God praise the Lord. And that is what we must do to my friends today. We must focus on the Lord Jesus in prayer until we find him. Once you find him then you're going to be able to come into his presence and have the living water flow through you so you don't get cut off by God in time, because you bear bi good fruit. I can read it to you again from Luke 13 where Jesus said he said: A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came to seek fruit from it and he found none and he said to the keeper of his vineyard: Look For three years I have come seeking fruit and I find none! Cut it down it is using up good ground. But he answered him and said: Sir let it alone this year and I'll dig around it and fertilize it, and if it bears fruit well we wont cut it down. Are you bearing fruit? Has the Lord God, come to your tree year after year and your bearing no good fruit? Can he find no fruit on your tree? Does he finds just sin there?

Well guess what he is going to want to get you cut off and thrown out and Jesus pleads: no I will fertilize this person. I will help him. And what if you don't listen? Are you listening to Jesus today? Let us listen dear friends. We don't want to be cut off, cut out of the kingdom of God. We want to be focused on the Lord Jesus Christ so we can bear good fruit of the kingdom of God hallelujah. Now who wants to bear good fruit? Now I want to! I want to continue pressing on in the kingdom with Jesus Christ bearing good fruit from his power. I used to bear a lot of bad fruit. I used to live my own life do my own things and just follow along with this society having fun and doing what I wanted to do. I had no good fruit for the kingdom of God. If the father came to my tree he would see none. I wasn't living for Jesus at all so he would see no fruit zero. Because without Jesus we read that you cannot bear any fruit. A branch cannot bear fruit on its own. Have you ever seen a dry branch like this? Have you ever seen that bear fruit by itself? Well you can't either. Like this branch you can't bear good fruit either unless you connect this branch into the good vine to the good tree Jesus Christ. So that's what I did!

I got on my knees and prayed to the Lord, “please Lord know me help me I want to serve you. I didn't want to ask him to help me do better in my life. I didn't ask him to help me be a better this or a better that. I denied myself before the Lord and I said I want to serve you. So I wasn't looking for him to help me, I was looking for me to help him! That's the attitude Jesus wants. You know he's had a story about that he said: does a servant come in from plowing and and then sit down and have the master serve him? No, Jesus said, certainly not! The master says come serve me and then after I had eaten you can eat your food in the kitchen. And then Jesus goes on to say; does the master then thank the servant for serving him? Of course not! Jesus goes on to say; in the same way you should say we are just servants doing our duty.

Dear friends have you got that attitude? Of do you think the Lord has to serve you? That's the problem with most of this generation is they think God has to serve them yet they do nothing for him. You know they're not there to serve the Lord but that's what I did. I decided I'm going to serve Jesus and forget myself. So I quit my pursuits and all the things I wanted to do and I dedicated my time one hundred percent 100% to serving Jesus. And Jesus came right into my life set me free from sin gave me hope strength and peace wisdom all the fruits of the spirit because he is a good vine! And he grafted me in so I could bear good fruit. And under trial he gives me the strength to keep following him. And I just pray I don't fall. I don't want to fall. Maybe I can. I can fall any day but I don't want to fall my friends. I am dedicated to staying on the narrow way keeping myself having the living water flow into my branch. Not cutting myself off from Jesus. Im really focused on that. And in that way Jesus is able to work through me so I can bear good fruit and he would do the same for you. And the father in heaven will come along and you say; well look this branch here has good fruit. Then he'll have a look at another branch and say this branch is withered and cuts it off with his pruning knife. And he's got a whole pile of dead branches on the ground and maybe he gives them a little time and maybe he grafts some of them back into the vine.

Maybe he's grafted you back into the vine today and you have been a dead branch. Maybe. But maybe then you then wither up again so he doesn't give you another chance and he just cuts you off and sweeps you straight into the fiery furnace. Dear friends, we have to be very serious about our lives here on earth. They are fleeting here one day and then gone the next. Our lives will never last very long. There are people I know from my acquaintances who who died suddenly. Years ago I knew one person you know he used to come riding with me and do sport together and you know one day he just died. Driving his car one day he had a heart problem. Just suddenly his heart stopped, died on the spot, his day was cut finished. Dear friend life is very short. We have to decide to serve Jesus today if you want to enter the kingdom of God, because if we serve the King will also reign with the King. If we suffer dishonor with the King were going to enjoy honor with the King. If we suffer hardship with our king with Jesus we suffer hardship with Jesus, Jesus himself suffered hardship and he came to serve. So if we serve the King and suffered hardship or the sake of the King will we not also reign with him and suffer and then reap honor with him? So if the king has many mansions and he goes to prepare them for his people, will he not then gather his people and take them to be with him when his mansions are?

Dear friends where is your loyalty? Your mind and your heart? Do you love sin with all your mind and heart? That is the problem. People say to me I can't turn away from sin. Well it's because they love sin with all their minds and all their hearts. We have to turn away from that. People say well look I am bound to things like lust. I can't stop watching porn or doing things I shouldn't do. Well you love that sin with all your mind and heart don't you? So how can you turn away from it until you decide to turn away from the love of it? Dear friends we have to love God with all our minds and all our hearts and while you love sin with your mind and heart, there is no room to love God with all your mind and heart. Christian they will professed I love Jesus. They don't have any fruit they love sin. If you're in that situation you are doubleminded and we reading James where it says: clean your hands you sinners repent you doubleminded, set your heart straight before God. Decide today who you are going to be loyal to and stick with that decision. Dear friends it is time to get dedicated unto the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us be dedicated earlier otherwise you're just going to get cut off, thrown into the fire.

Now people say; well hell doesn't exist so what is the use, it is all in vain they say. You'll just die and become nothing. These people don't really know the truth that is why they say that. They don't see. Now not many people see, now I can tell you confidently that one day I saw in a vision at night (dream) and I saw this place in hell it was a dark area in hell and in the dark place of hell (maybe it was the outer darkness I don't know) but there was a whole pile of people there and then across to the left I saw the kingdom as another place. And I saw two places and it seems to be like a big divide between the two and then there's no crossing between the two. And the people in this place were crying and weeping and crying out. You know the verse about the weeping and gnashing of teeth well that's what they were doing.

And they were like: why did nobody warn us that living a life for our own desires, and I'm quoting what they said. This is what I heard and I am quoting it. They said: why did nobody warn us that living a life after our own desires, (and they said after our own desires) ended us in this place! Why did nobody warn us? And I got to thinking about Jesus and the parable of the rich man who ended up in hell. And this rich man said the same thing he said: please warn my brothers I have six brothers, or five brothers, and send someone back from the dead to warn them. And Abraham said this he said: well they have Moses and the prophets to listen to. And he said: they won't listen to them. And Abraham said: well if they won't listen to Moses and the prophets well they won't listen to even Lazarus sent back from the dead. Dear friends we have to listen to the prophets. To the truth and we have far greater prophet now, we have Jesus Christ. He is greater than any prophet. We have someone far greater here in our midst so we have no excuse, dear friends. Now are you heeding the warning that living a life after your own desires ends in hell? I'm sure those people could've said: please send somebody back and warn my family I don't want them to come here. I'm sure they could've said this. In my dream I didn't hear them say that but I'm sure they could say that. And I be thinking about today how many people are warned about hell? I believe everybody knows about hell. They all mock it, not all, but many. They say who cares.

It is such futility of a fool isn't it! Having that attitude is a fool, the futility of a fool. Dear friends we don't want to be like a foolish man, here one day gone the next, we want to be serious about Jesus Christ. Laying all our strength and hope and faith in him, living after him because we know full well that Jesus came to save the world. He said himself I don't come to condemn sinners. He didn't come to condemn you, he didnt come to condemn sinners. He is the gardener who pleaded with the father please don't cut this tree down. Please let me fertilize it and we'll see if it bears fruit and if it doesn't then you cut it down. You see the father in heaven sent Jesus Christ as the mediator for you. And that is why when Jesus Christ came to the world he came to save the world from hell. He didn't come to save the world from from just nothing. He came to save the world from hell from the place where sin takes you. I saw myself. Christians they write to me and they say there's no hell. That's what Satan says too. Satan says there's no hell. Why? Because he doesn't want you to believe that you need saving. Because why would you need Jesus if there is no hell? It doesn't matter does it! You could just live your own life have fun in your sin and is become nothing. He wouldn't be any point really to come to Jesus and be saved would it? Because people love their sins so much isn't it! So they want to stay in the darkness. But we know that there is a hell as Jesus himself said: if your eye causes you to sin you be better to cut it off than end in the fires of hell.

That's what Jesus himself said. He quoted the Scriptures where it says their worm dies not nor the fire is ever quenched. We read in revelation that their torment is forever. Dear friends we don't want to be cast into the lake of fire, because we love our sin and we are a useless branch that withers, we don't bear fruit, we want to serve the Lord Jesus Christ and reign with him in his kingdom don't we! And bring as many people into the kingdom of God as we can. We don't want to be cast out with the bad because the Lord God comes to sort the good from the bad. God doesn't want bad things in his kingdom he sorts good from bad. People who really choose the Lord are made clean. Jesus came to save the world. If everybody decided to say okay well I is I accept the Lord Jesus today the whole world would be saved today. Nobody would go to hell. Everybody who believes in Jesus Christ will be saved, as long as they don't cut themselves off from Jesus again and their branch withers up and they get cut off. Now this is where there has been a lot of problems in this last day is that many preachers have gone out into world, and there've gone and preached that Jesus saves, and the people believe. But the thing is these people they they believe for a little while, not for a long time. They are like the seed that fell on the stony ground and they believe and they receive the truth with joy and they say yeah yeah I believe in Jesus! And then trial and trouble comes. Persecution arises. And the care of this world arise and choke the seed out and there's no fruit. We don't want to be like the foolish Christians.

The foolish bridesmaids who don't graft themselves into living water properly and they don't fill their lamps up with oil and they don't bear any fruit. Because Jesus himself said he would say to them: truly I don't know you or where you are from depart from here. Thats what he said in the parable of the bridesmaid. Now we had five bridesmaids were wise and five who were foolish. Now these five foolish bridesmaids again listen they were not unbelievers. They were not pagans. Christians say to me well people go to hell because they were never saved to begin with but once you are saved you are always saved. No! The five bridesmaids who were foolish, were also Christians. They had the light of the Holy Spirit except that they just didn't take enough oil. What did Jesus say to them? He said: I truly do not know you go away from here. And they went sadly away, the door was shut. Now the door to the wedding feast was shut. In other words Jesus was inside all the people who followed him were with him the wise bridesmaids, the people who heed what I am telling you today, and what happened was they were separate from these foolish bridesmaids behind the door. And what happened was the door was shut. Jesus looked over the door and said truly truly I do not know you, go away depart from here. Go and read that for yourself.

Now I'm only telling you the words of Jesus Christ. You can go and shoot me up and say my doctrine is false all you like. But that means you're also going to say Jesus Christ is false who himself told all these parables and their meaning is very clear here. Dear friends let us not deceive ourselves. The truth of Jesus Christ must be adhered to and followed, and if we do indeed follow these truths we will inherit the kingdom of God. Is not that wonderful! All you have to do is give your life to Jesus Christ, seek him with all your heart and stay with him till the end. That's all you have to do. Keep away from your sin and once he sets you free from your sin don't go back. If you do well repent and come back out of it. Don't get cut off .if you do this unto the end you will be saved. Salvation is easy if you stay with the Lord. It's only when you walk off and you go your own way that salvation gets very hard. It gets hard for you because you don't want to leave your life. You don't want to leave all your stuff, and that's where people they go and get to false doctrines, because the false doctrine gives them a sense of salvation yet allows them to live a lousy life and allow sin and worldliness in their life and they feel they can get away with this before God. Because they actually become deceived in their hearts unto destruction, believing lies that is an illusion sent to them from the devil, trying to keep them out of the kingdom of God.

Now let us not have this happen to us dear friends, we want to have our whole hearts set on the Kingdom of God alone. And we will reap our reward. Now it's only 50 years maybe it is 60 years. Maybe 70 years is your lifetime. Well once you get there, then it just ends doesn't it. It is not really very long my friends. Time flies. You know you might think time is a long time but you know people they say they wake up after 20 years you know and they think well you know 20 years went very quickly. And then, you know the next 20 years goes even faster and before they know it they are a grandma or grandpa, and then health problems start and they really realize their mortality. And then trips to the hospital begin the next minute you die!thats just how life is. There is no getting away from from the old curse of life and death, every man must die. But we live in a time where we've reached the end of this whole system and the Lord Jesus Christ wants to put it to an end. And he doesn't like this system because he owns this world and he wants to take it away from Satan. Now at the moment Satan rules this world you realize that? He's the prince of this world. He is the ruler of this world and he owns the kingdoms. People think that Jesus owns the kingdoms. No he doesn't, if he owned them, they wouldn't be like this. He would cast them all out.

You know the kingdoms of earth are our run by Satan. So when you get successful in this world this is because of Satan. People think you know God brings about their success in all the things they do in this worldly generation. No, Satan does it. Well Satan did the same he asked Jesus he said to Jesus: worship me and I'll give you these kingdoms. He was going to make Jesus really successful too. He is gonna give Jesus all the kingdoms of this earth. That's what he said anyway, but he is a liar. Don't believe him. And he said if you only worship me I will give you these kingdoms. He says they are mine to give them all. Jesus didn't argue with him because Jesus knew these kingdoms belong to Satan because all the people there, accept and and gave themselves to Satan, and so they are all legal property of Satan. And if you are still in your sins today then Satan owns you too and he has every right over you because he's your father you're his son. Believe it or not if you love sin and you live a life of sin, Satan is actually your father of choice. But we don't want to have Satan as our father no more dear friends. One John chapter 3 says that those who go on in sin and love lies, their father is Satan. But the heavenly father, father in heaven, he is our father of who turns away from sin and follows Jesus. And then we become children of God. We rant Satan's children no more. And so when you go praying for worldly wealth and worldly success, you actually really praying to Satan. And if you want to if you want to sacrifice your salvation for the world, Satan will give you the world.

He will make you successful if he can get you to to reject Jesus Christ and become lost. And then once you're lost he is going to break you. Satan will start turning on you and he'll make everything go bad and get you dead. You know people they reach the end of their pop music careers and they're broken people. You know that they they feel so so sad and they are taking drugs all the time and they die really young at 50 years. Often people just make up to 50 years. You know satan really comes down hard on them once he deceived them, he is a wicked master. He has no mercy, he deceives them with the world and then takes it away right at the last minute. He is like those Chinese water torture you know. Dripping the water in front of them just to torment them.

That's what Satan is like. He is a liar. He will give you the world then he will take it away, but we who follow Jesus will be provided for. Jesus will allow us to have an honest job. Jesus himself was a carpenter, and even though we're within Satan's kingdom's, we are a light inside Satan's world. This isn't God's world, it is Satan's world. We are a light inside Satan's world his kingdoms and Jesus is going to come and throw this ruler out of this world and when he does he will also get all the people who love Satan and they're all going to go away to be with Satan. In his kingdom his people will be there. His rules, his law. All the things that he's going to bring upon this earth soon is going to be his own. We read about in the book of revelation what will happen, lions will no longer have to to jump on the animals to eat them, the lion will lie down with the lamb. The cobra won't hurt the child. There will be no more of this system of sin. Satan's world is one of dog eat dog to get to the top. And once you get to the top there is nothing there and its all heart griefs and sorrows.

But Jesus' world is one where the lion lies down with the lamb and the lion eats grass. Thats what it says in Revelation. This system we see now doesn't belong to Jesus it is Satan's system. People striving to get the top, that Satan's way. People are striving to do the best they can in all the things they want to do in this world yet they don't follow Jesus, that's the way of Satan. All the sport you see that's all satan too. All these distractions keeping you from going to heaven and getting you into hell. Because one thing you must realize is that when Jesus comes, he is going to cast the ruler out of this world, satan, throw him into the bottomless pit, and is going to bring about the day of judgment. And everybody will stand before the Lord and they'll be judged according to every thing that they have done.......

WHY MANY CHRISTIANS END IN HELL (get cut off)

A new beginning is coming, but not for the world. The world is not going to get a new beginning. Only people who follow Jesus and follow God in every way, they are going to have a new beginning that is going to come soon. But the world you see is going to be tipped out and swept into the garbage. The world is headed to destruction not a new beginning. If you are living in the ways of this world, you're not going to be part of any new beginnings, because the world's way is the path to destruction. It is the path to hell. Hell is the place of destruction. God's garbage dump where everybody who practice sin and loves lies and does the will of Satan and follows their own desires, they will be cast and burned up in the great garbage dump called hell. And the world's ways leads to hell. One day Jesus is going to burn up all this you see, and it will be no more. Swept away. Everything you strive for, all those housing and other things you strive to attain in this world at the expense of your relationship with God, it only takes you to the garbage dump and you will never be part of any new beginning unless you repent.

Because Jesus said strive to entered the narrow way to heaven for narrow is the way that enter life but broad is the path, broad is the road that goes to destruction and many are they who travel on this road. You see Peter warned himself, he said love not the world nor anything in the world for those who love the world are not of God. James said that as well. Those who love the world are not of God they do not have the love father in them Christian or not. You see people who love the world even if they're Christian are still going to be destroyed with the world. Because the world heads to destruction, the garbage dump in hell. Jesus himself says that every branch of his that do not bear good fruit, will be swept up, cut off and cast into hell. Into fiery furnace and burned. Now these branches that do not bear fruit, they arent worldly pagan people, they're people who profess Jesus and they're connected to him. They're Christians. Many Christians think that you will be always saved. They do not know that you can be cut off if you do not bear fruit, because Jesus himself said that those branches in him that do not bear fruit, they will be cut off and cast into the fire.

Now Christians never read those verses, because they are living lies. They think that they will always be saved even if they continue to practice their evil. Yet Jesus himself said in his own very words, which few people care to read and listen to, Jesus said that the axe is lying at the foot of every tree that does not bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit in the Garden of God. Now these trees are they nonbelievers? Or are they believers? No dear friends, they are believers. They're Christians. Because they're in God's garden. You see the branches that are grafted into Jesus, they aren't unbelievers. They're believers who profess Jesus. That's why they're grafted in. and since Jesus said that the father will cut off every branch in me that withers, does not bear fruit, and sweep them up and throw them into the firery Furnace, what makes you dear Christian think that you can escape the firey wrath of God's judgment in hell, if you do not bear good fruit? Now most Christians bear the fruits of this world. They are following the world, they live in the sins of this world, and they think that they can chase their own desires, careers, and talents, and all these things in this world, and yet they don't live for Jesus, they don't obey him, and they continue to practice sin! They continue to practice what is evil in the sight of God like fornication and even homosexuality. They lie, cheat steal. They don't turn away from cheating, from from all the sins of this generation. From seeking worldliness and worldly wealth and in seeking the things that this world loves that is pleasure and pursuits and parties and drinking wine women and song, and then they wonder why that Jesus is going to say to them; Depart from me you workers of sin! Even though they believed in his name.

Dear friends let us not be deceived! The Scriptures say it very clearly and the people are just not reading the Scriptures! Because we read in the scriptures that God is going to cut off every branch within Jesus, that does not bear good fruit and cast that branch into hell. Now do you want to be cut off? Or are you going to just go the way of the world that you see all around you. You know this world is going to be destroyed. It is not going to be going to a new beginning! The only people who are going to be going to a new beginning, are those who follow Jesus, turn from their sin, and they seek to be with him. They followed him in every way. They please him and they are seeking to follow him with all their hearts. Now you go and test me and test my word by the scriptures. Because you'll know that I'm speaking the truth because of what Jesus said.

Now you tell me if you think that Christians are saved once they believe and always will be saved even if they gone in sin and don't bear good fruit, why is it then that Jesus said that he will have every branch within him that does not bear fruit, cut off and thrown into the fiery furnace? Dear souls don't be deceived! Some Christians say well that person was never saved to begin with. No dear soul, that person used to be grafted into Jesus! So if he had stayed there he would've been saved! Don't deceive yourselves in foolish doctrines my friends. Turn away from all sin. Don't go the paths of this world that's headed for destruction. Go the path of Jesus Christ. Follow him in obedience. Turn away from all your sin. Crucify your desires daily. Put out all worldliness, give up your pursuits in this world. Give them up. That's why did, I turned away and gave them. I put them out. I no longer follow my pursuits not more. All those things I was striving after with such zealousness. Ive turned away from that. Now dear friend will you do that too? Because that's the way that Jesus wants us to go.

Because thats bearing good fruit. And since I did that, Jesus lets me bear good fruit. You see Im bearing good fruits of turning away from sin, and enduring under trial and temptation, and walking the narrow way with Christ and listening to him and living to him in obedience. Turning away from all evil when it arises and following the Lord Jesus Christ and seeking and striving to serve him every day. Now is that what you want to do today too? Do you want to come on this narrow way of living for Jesus above everything else? Where you no longer live for your things anymore and you no longer strive after the things this world wants? Are ready to give all that away now dear friends? Because that's what Jesus said; to give everything away if you follow me.

Dear friends I've had to give away all these things that I was once so focused on and it's wonderful that I was able to do that, because I tell you the truth dear friends, I have found the way of peace and the way that is joy. It is much better than the world could ever offer me which was only grief and many sorrows. So let us turn away, dear friends, from the ways of this world and you just go and follow Jesus and don't get cut off by God! Who will cut off you if you don't bear good fruit! If you're just bearing the fruits of this world, then don't expect to stay grafted into the vine of Jesus if you're a believer…...

THE LIE GOOD NEWS CHRISTIANS BELIEVE

There is a lying good news that many people have been told and they believe and that is Jesus forgives all your sins and you can just go on and live how you like and he will still forgive all your sin. You can continue following your ways and you can be successful in this world and you can continue in your lifestyle, and you can be gay still and you can continue to practice immorality and you can live outside of marriage in fornication, and Jesus will still forgive you. Now that is a lie my friends.

I want to tell you what the real good news is that has been hidden from many people. The real good news is is that if you want to come out of the darkness, then that you can. You can turn away from the darkness and walk away from the darkness and come in to the light of Jesus and walk with him in obedience. Because that's what the good news is that Jesus said that: if anyone wants to follow me can be saved then he must deny himself pick up his cross and come follow me. That's the way to salvation and that is the good news. So the good news today that I want to tell you which is the real good news and not the lying good news, is that if you want to leave the darkness today, you want to leave all your dark sins, the darkness in your life, and the dark way you are on at the moment, then you can!

All you have to do is turn away from it decides to come out of it to the light and to Jesus. And what happens is Jesus will wash you clean and you will be able to walk with him on the narrow way and the light and not in the darkness anymore. So no more sinning in the darkness. No more being bound to slavery to hell. But dear friends if you want to believe the lie good news that says that you can stay in the darkness and still be saved then what hope do you have? How dark is the darkness that you are really in if you think that that darkness is light? Dear souls believe the real good news not the lying good news…....

HOW I GOT FREE FROM CIGARETTES ALCOHOL TESTIMONY

Testimony from a brother in Christ: I continue with the topic alcoholism. Now like I said I found that someone who actually took the desire away from me. But let me tell you how I got to that point. Now in 1989 in April after I got sick, and I made this promise to God I made a deal with him, if he heals me I promise him I will follow him in everything. And one of this things were alcohol for sure and also smoking and swearing and other stuff we do in our society and it is ok. But because I promised he healed me so I had to keep a promise. But I thought after that happened, I made a promise I because a Christian. So I thought it was all over. In the beginning i did repent, for a while I didn't drink, nothing. And I quit smoking for a short time because I just coulnt give up. So I would go back and forth, smoke for 3 weeks, not smoke for another one. Then slowly I start to drink again.

Now I didnt drink like before to get drunk but I had 3 or 4 beers and I would feel guilty but I couldnt give up. So I kept myself to the point in saying well if I don't get drunk then thats still acceptable. I Thought that God says none of the drunks will see heaven, so I found myself a comfort place saying if I had only 2 or 3 beers then it is maybe not too bad. One day I went to work, I was working nights for northern telecom. It was about 2 o'clock in the morning. So I went outside to smoke a cigaret from my section where I used to work. It was a beautiful sky, lots of stars, the moon. And I was looking up and then I start to pray.

I said, "Lord My God, you know how much I struggle with smoking with drinking, especially smoking, Father God I ask in the name of Jesus Christ from Nazareth, take this desire away from me, take this Spirit or whatever it would be or what it is, get him out, I want to be free, Lord…." I was crying, "Help me". So I finish my prayer, I walk back into my section, I walk to my desk where I keep my cigarets I took the pack and I throw the pack in the garbage. And then all of a sudden I have no desire, no craving, this time was different to any other time when I tried to quit and also with alcohol. I didn't desire no more to drink. Not even a glass or a beer or whatever. Those things went away from me, I was free.

As I was going, a week went by. (That was the most difficult time, about 6 or 7 days and then I just couldnt handle it, I have to have my beer, I have to have my cigarets) But this time a second week went through and then a whole month went by and I have no desire, no craving. It was altogether different. So then I said, "How can this be, what did I do different this time than before when I promised God I would quit and leave everything and follow you?" That was done in my own strength. I tried to prove God I could do it. I tried to make it look like I am in control. But no, I was not in control. And then I understood what exactly I done right this time. I asked God himself to take this desire away, to free me from this spirit, from this evil spirit what kept me down. What oppressed me. Because everything that is on our own power, everything was on our strength, it has to be something more than what we can handle or we can do and then we come to what God said, we do not fight against flesh and blood but we fight against the evil spirits in the heavens around us. So here I am, The Lord freed me from this evil spirit of alcoholism, of smoking, of swearing, of lying and on and on and on with sins that we call them lifestyle…....

WORKING FOR MONEY ISNT SIN

Working an honest job to make money for daily life, is not a sin. Jesus was a carpenter, Paul fixed nets, and we read what the apostles taught about that; they said that he who does not provide for his family is worse than an unbeliever. We also read that he who does not work should not eat. We are to work honest jobs in our lives, but we must be focused on Jesus Christ. There are many jobs that are unholy and wicked, and if you work them you are in violation of the laws of God and breaking Jesus' commandments.

But there are also many jobs that we have to do and that are necessary, and we must get through our days being honest and working and serving Jesus and doing what we can for the kingdom of God. We must be keeping our robes separate from the ways and paths of this world. We want to be keeping our robes from all sin knowing that those who are obedient to Jesus and strive to obey him, their sins will be forgiven and he will cover all their sins and they will not be held against them. So dear friends be honest, work where the Lord gives you work, and be faithful in all you do for the Lord. Be separate unto him. Be separate from the path of this generation that loves lies dishonestly cheating lust perversion and immorality and all the things that God hates......

FAITH AND HEARING JESUS YOURSELF

But it's all about faith in Jesus and if we have faith in the Lord then we are going to enter the kingdom of God. People write me and ask me how do I enter the kingdom of God? How do I know if I wont go to hell? How do I know if I'm pleasing to the Lord? How do I know what if I die and go to hell? People ask me Jesus doesn't speak to me, I don't know what to do. Well today, I want to encourage everybody that we have to have faith even when things don't go the way we think they should go. We always like to try and work it out and get everything now, but we don't see the kingdom of heaven yet. But Jesus promised that in time if we stay faithful we will see his kingdom. And his kingdom is going to come and he's going to prepare mansions for his people in the kingdom of heaven. And he promised that himself. That is why we have to have faith and not get all worried and concerned every time we think Jesus doesn't speak to us, or think that we're going to hell and just give up. Just because we through some trial and maybe we fall to some sins, you know maybe we fall to some sins. We go to repent, get out of them and keep following Jesus. We cant use sin as an excuse to continue following the broad path to hell. Now what is this broad path to hell?

This broad path is the part of living for yourself, living after what you want to do, and you don't spend your time seeking to know Jesus and serving him. That's the broad path. But the narrow path is the path of denying yourself, not following what you want to do in this life anymore, and instead spending your time praying and serving the Lord. That's what the narrow party is. Are you walking the narrow path or the broad path? Now Christians and nonbelievers alike, write me and they say “well I don't feel close to the Lord anymore”. Or “I don't know the Lord he may not like me, he probably doesn't care so I feel like just giving up and just going on with my life”. Dear friends, that's a very poor excuse. Some people say, “well I've sinned too much and I feel that I backslidden too far”. But thats even worse excuse. That means you're just going to go on in your sin? Just gonna go on in your way of life that leads to hell anyway and just reject the Lord? That is not a very nice way to treat Jesus, after all he died on the cross and was scourged for you and he was beaten for you. And then you still can't follow him because you think that, “Well my sins condemn me anyway let's go on in sin, let's go on in our own life”… keep drinking, keep smoking keep doing sin. Dear friends we don't want to be like this, we want to have faith. Because while theirs faith and while there's life we have hope. And the hope is the eternal kingdom of God to all who believe in Jesus. And it is more than just believing in Jesus, when you believe you actually go and you live for him.

You see Jesus said that if anybody wants to follow me, he must pick up his cross, denying himself and come follow me. People say yes I believe there is a Jesus. He was a man who lived 2000 years ago. We did we do believe that but he is not the son of God. That's what they say. But the friends we know that Jesus is the son of God. He rose from the dead on the third day. And he proved that in my life. That's why I can say that Jesus is the son of God, because Jesus himself set me free from sin. He gave me the power to not curse and follow the ways of sin no more. He helps me to continue walking that way. Now it can get hard you can get tempted and I get tempted too. And the devil can come along with all kinds of evil desires and try and influence you to go and sin again, and maybe give up hope. It's all possible, but dear friends it is we who live after the hope of eternal life in Jesus Christ, we crucify the flesh daily and put it to death by the power of the Spirit and we live. That is how we live, why? It's only because of one thing. This one thing is faith, faith in Jesus Christ. If we have faith we will be saved. Praise the Lord. But you must have faith, praise the Lord. I want to read to you what Paul said about, he says here he says: we rely on what Jesus Christ has done for us we put no confidence in our own effort. Though I could have confidence in my own efforts indeed. If others have a reason for confidence in their own efforts then I Paul, could have confidence in mine even more. Because I was circumcised at eight years old, and I was a pureblood Israelite and I was from the tribe of Benjamin and I was a real Hebrew. I was a member of the Pharisees of the strictest sect. And I was zealous and harshly persecuted the Christians and as for righteousness, I obeyed the law without fault. I once thought that these things are valuable but now consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. ( you see Christ died for us on the cross so we got to have faith in him) yet everything is worthless when you compare the infinite value of knowing Jesus Christ.

Knowing Jesus is more than more than just a belief. Jesus is the son of God and that is what we base our faith on is when you get to know Jesus. But first you must have faith. And you got to seek and then you'll find. And the Lord Jesus is going to start to change things in your life. He will set you free from bondages. He will start to speak to you in different ways. And people say, well how do I know the Jesus? How do I speak to him? In different ways, and the answer is simple; we just give our lives to him and we live for him and then he does the rest. He may not speak to you all once, or he may be speaking to you and you don't realize that he is speaking to you. He may be speaking to you through a bad situation in your life because he's trying to show you to leave chasing your own desires lead to the fire. The Lord can speak in many ways we have to learn to hear him. I'll read on, Listen: for the Lord Jesus sake I have discarded everything and I no longer count on my own righteousness of obeying the law of Moses, (you know the law of Moses don't you? As written in the book of Deuteronomy and Leviticus) I become righteous through the faith in Jesus Christ. For God's way of making us righteous with him depends on faith. I want to know Jesus and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. (you see Jesus Christ was raised from the dead by the power of God. And you too need to have his power in you praise the Lord)

I want to suffer with him so that one way or another I'll experience the resurrection from the dead. I don't mean to say that I have really achieved the goal and reached perfection, but I press on to possess that perfection for which Jesus Christ first possessed me. (you see we are here to possess the perfection of Jesus within us) I focus on one thing; forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead. I press on reaching the end of the race to receive the heavenly prize for which God through Jesus Christ is calling us. The prize of eternal life. Let all who are spiritually mature agree on these things. Dear friends Paul was striving to enter the kingdom by keeping the rules. Now that's what everybody must do. We cant expect to enter God's kingdom if we don't follow Jesus Christ and don't obey him and strive for his perfection, praise the Lord. Because Jesus himself commanded that we are to come the way of the perfection of God, not the way of the righteous Pharisees. People who just say that they are keeping the 10 Commandments and they make a good show of it, yet their hearts are not righteous and you know what they're doing in secret.

Dear friends we have to be living in faith in Jesus Christ nothing else, and we are here to strive to finish the race of faith. Stay true to the Lord dear brothers sisters and fix your thoughts on what is true, honourable, right, pure, lovely, admirable and think about these things that are excellent and worthy of praise, and keep putting into practice all you have learned and the Lord's peace will be with you. Dear friends we have to have the faith of Jesus Christ and not be just losing our faith and following our own way. And you know, don't just think that you can you can just go on in the world and have Jesus at the same time. We have to stay far away from that dear friends. We have to have faith and not doubt about it. People they doubt a lot. They say, “well you know the Lord isn't speaking to me so that means that maybe he just doesn't want me, so I can just go back to my old way and lets just give up”… people are very quick to give up and when the rope of life is thrown to them, they want to just let go of it again. And while Jesus is trying to pull them into the ship, they don't want to stay on the rap even though it is hard to hang onto it, they want to just let go. So he throws them the rope again, and they hang on for a little while, but then they just let go again.

Dear friends, we don't want to be like that, we want to hang on to the rope till he pulls us aboard. Not just half way, and then just let go again and say, “you know the Lord doesn't hear me”. Or, “I don't hear the Lord, let's let go of the rope”. Or maybe the storm so loud that you can't hear him. Maybe you're too focused on the deep water under you that you can't hear him and you are in panic. Dear friends, we have to hang onto the rope and allow Jesus to pull us into the kingdom of heaven, and don't let go. Don't think the rope rope is going to break and don't doubt that the Lord has the strength to pull you in. because he does, he has both the strength to pull you in and the rope won't break. So that is why dear friends we have to trust and put faith in Jesus even though we may not hear him, or we may not see him, or we may think that he is not there or any of these things that cause people to doubt. You know we just got to focus on the Lord Jesus. If you don't you will fall off the end of the rope, you cannot be saved. And people don't realize you know that if we just let go of the rope and just fall back into the waters, we're going to die and then we're going to go to hell. Nobody wants to go to hell dear friends, Jesus came for the reason of saving people from the fires of hell. From where people send themselves for their own sin.

Dear friends keep away from sin. And that's what Paul was talking about. He was talking about not relying on men for your salvation and not relying on people, but relying on God. For he is the one who brings you the hope of salvation not man. So you have to rely on Jesus Christ otherwise you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. You'll never be one of those few people who do we are told to strive to enter the kingdom of heaven. And strive and few make it. Many try a few make it. You will never enter the kingdom if you don't strive and that goes for me too. At any time we can become discouraged and we start to want to let go of the rope. And we start to think well you know I feel down today, you know maybe I let the Lord down too much. And you don't want to have faith anymore. What's the use of giving up dear friends. We are not here to give up. We need to strive on the narrow way until we enter the gods kingdom. The prize of eternal life isn't for quitters, it is for only those people who finish the race of faith. And its not a race of seeing it is a race of faith. Why do you need faith if you saw the kingdom of God all around you? And you could see Jesus walking with you? You wouldn't need faith if you could see everything and know everything and know the future. That's why God doesn't show you the future much and that's why you don't see everything. Because down here it's all to do with faith. It doesn't work like that down here. It is all to do with faith alone. And faith is: what is Faith? Faith is believing and hoping things that you cannot see but nevertheless you know will happen in time. That's what faith is. In time you will see. In time you will inherit the kingdom of God. If you can't have faith in the cross knowing that you will inherit the kingdom of God if you believe in Jesus, then what you have? Nothing! Either you have faith or you have nothing. Either you have faith or you're a nonbeliever who goes to hell.

And dear friends we want to have faith because we know that the Lord died for us. We know because we've been changed inside. We already have his peace in us, so we must stay with it until the end even when things look hard. Or you think maybe God is not helping you right now. I'm sure some of the Christians who were martyred in the days of the apostles up to this day, they could easily say, “well where is my God, you know these people are going to kill me”! But dear friends, God isn't everything about the flesh, when we die we go to be with him. Its not about everything to do with the flesh. God is to do with spirit and God is Spirit and people are spirit and we're only inside flesh bodies on this earth. So we must have faith. If you don't have faith, dear friends, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. Not only that but you cannot please him. You cannot believe Jesus if you don't have faith. You see there was a brother in Christ who was shown hell and he was shown by the Lord in a vision. You see he wanted to kill himself and the night before he killed himself the Lord Jesus showed up and showed him the reality of hell. Thats where he found himself. And he asked Jesus, Cant I take back something from this place to earth to show the people? Something tangible, something you can see. A piece of hell, then people might believe. But the Lord Jesus said, it doesn't work like that down on earth, it doesn't work like that. It is only through faith. And dear friends if you don't have faith, you cannot please God. Down here it is by faith. When you're going along in your normal life, it is by faith that you believe in Jesus for salvation. And when you accept him in faith, the reality of the Spirit does come into you. Does speak to you, does change you. Does set you free from sin. I have brethren who have been set free from our alcohol addictions, from smoking addictions. They have been set free from all kinds of addictions even drug addictions, and it was all through the Lord Jesus Christ and his power and they became new people born again of the spirit and totally changed. Because of Jesus Christ.

So you see dear friends we can throw off all doubt today because we have such a cloud of witnesses around us of people who have been changed by the power of Jesus Christ. And I myself have been changed, so we can have faith knowing that since he has changed so many people and helped so many people throughout the ages until this very day, that we have no more room for doubt and we can throw it all out, and just lay faith in the fact that he died for us so that we could inherit the kingdom of heaven. And as long as we just deny ourselves and live for him, we will be saved. Isn't that wonderful! You see entering the kingdom of heaven through Jesus Christ is a free gift, but it comes at a cost and there are also conditions. The condition is is that you have to believe in Jesus and obeyed him. Thats the condition. You have to obey the Lord. And the cost is that you will lose worldly things. Things like friends and possibly money, you may lose a lot of things I don't know. People will hate you you won't be included in society no more and you wont fit in. so these are things you will loose. You wont be able to chase after all the sin loving paths anymore because you don't want to go those ways anymore. So you are going to lose things like this, and the conditions of salvation through Jesus Christ is that you obey him. Theres no use saying you believe yet you don't believe him, thats the condition. And other than that, its free and you'll enter his kingdom if you obey him and you follow him. Because Jesus said that people who look back, back to their old life, he said they're not worthy of me. He said that no person who puts his hand to the plow and then looks back is worthy of me. Worthy means, they are not worthy of Jesus at all which means neither his cross nor death for them, nor anything. They're not worthy of him as a person. As God. And Jesus also said that he who does not keep my commandments and does not obey them is not worthy of me either. Does not love me. He said he who does not love me will not obey me. But he said that he does love me I will come into them and me and my father will be with him and we will reveal ourselves to him. Jesus has revealed himself to me. Has he revealed himself to you? If he hasn't then seek! Jesus reveals himself to people.

But you got his seek dear friends. You ask knock and seek and the Lord will reveal himself to you also. Isn't that wonderful praise the Lord! We have to seek ask and knock, then we will find. Dear friends let us do this. Let us have the Lord revealed himself to us. He spoke the truth. He said plainly that those who love me will keep my commandments and me and my father will come into him and we will reveal ourselves to him. Think about that! Reveal ourselves to him! Thats revelation. That means Jesus comes into your life and becomes a reality in your life. All of us need the revelation of God in our life. That's why so many people always ask me how can I know Jesus? How can he be in my life? How can I have his revelation? And I cannot help you have that, I can only tell you well you have to go and ask the Lord and seek him and only then will you have these revelations and you will come to know him. But you have to seek. You have to ask. To knock and then you will find. Thats the only way. He who doesn't seek, doesn't knock cannot find. That's why I say you have to have faith, because unless you ask and seek and knock in faith, and you believe in Jesus who is the Messiah, then how can you be saved? You can't be saved until you do this.

We have to ask, dear friends, in faith knowing who he is is who he is. He is the Messiah. He is the Lord who was raised from the dead and he came to save all people who believe in him, praise the Lord. So let us have faith in Jesus and not doubt anymore. What is the use of doubting dear friends? We must not doubt anymore, we must have faith and strive to follow Jesus. If I didn't have faith why would I be here speaking to you? Would I be just going on in my life, doing what I want to do? Why would I bother to to tell you about Jesus if I didn't have faith in him? If Jesus hadn't changed me so much why do you think I'm here? If Jesus hadn't done so much to me why you think I would bother to set myself apart for the Lord Jesus Christ if I didn't know him, and I didn't have any faith and I didn't experience him? Dear friends that is why I'm here speaking, because not only did I find the Lord, but he also showed me things, speaks to me and leads me. Otherwise how could I be here and talk confidently about the Lord? How can I leave my sins if I didn't come to know the Lord Jesus Christ? You have to have faith. You have to lay your faith in Jesus today and decided to give your life to him and not just go on in unbelief. Don't be like the people who who think well you know Jesus just doesn't speak. So Im just going to give up or I am doing some sin Im feeling really bad about it and I think I've backslidden too far, so let's just give up and just go back to the world… why do you want to be like those people of little faith? People who don't have faith don't go to heaven.

People who realize that Jesus is the savior of the world and realize his reality in their minds and hearts, they're the ones who get changed by the Lord. So Im trying to push you to see the reality of Jesus for yourself knowing that if you turn to him he seek him with all your heart you will indeed come to know his reality for yourself. And it will start off small and as you continued to walk the race of faith, it will grow and grow. And it will become deeper and deeper into the reality of the Lord. He starts revealing himself more to you. But when you go off and walk in your own paths again, suddenly the reality of the Lord starts to leave your life and you start to fall away and you think well what happened, I used to know the Lord so well and I just don't feel he knows me anymore….and that's where people fall away, because they just start going back to the world and their own ways. You know I get people they message me and they say well you know I used to know the Lord that I don't anymore…and I have looked on their channels and all I can see is whole walls of video games and in their liking all these worldly things like pop music, rock and rap and they're liking movies and the are all just following the world and their wall shows it. They have all these likes of the world.

And it is no wonder they don't know the Lord because they have drowned him out in the world. They ran off from the narrow path. They're back on the broad path to hell and you know what people on the broad path to hell do. You see what they do every day. They go to the movies they watch TV. The people on the broad path to hell live for themselves. They seek their money, they seek to advance their careers. They're seeking to get everything but they don't live for the Lord. They're entertained by the world. They love the comedians of this world. They're laughing at the jokes and the foolish things of this world and they're not separating themselves onto the Lord. That is because they don't know Jesus because they're on the broad path to hell. But Jesus warns them and brings people to a point in their life where they have to cry out to the Lord. And he wants to come out of the Broad way. Thats what the Holy Spirit gives warning: come out of the Broad way, come onto the narrow way. And people hear and they decide to believe and have faith so they come onto the narrow way. And they start believing in the Lord and they start following him, but then trial and trouble comes then they all fall away and they go back to the Broad way again, and then suddenly death overtakes them and the next minute they end up in hell. Having had a chance of salvation but then going back to the broad path. Going back to that of the worldly friends the music you know the wine women and song, the pursuit of pleasure and next minute they're in hell. Chance over even they had a dig for a chance at one time.

Dear friends let us learn from these people. Let us not end up in hell with them. We need to have faith today and stay on the narrow way. Theres no prize for quitters, there is only eternal life prize for people who strive on the narrow way obeying the commands of Jesus and doing what he says. Because those who obey Jesus is the ones who love him and they're the ones who will have the blood wash away their sins. You see the big deception in this world especially among Christian circles and churches, is that they believe Jesus washes away everybody's sin. They think that everybody has their sins washed away. They don't realize that it's only those who have faith in Jesus who have their sins washed away. It is not other religions, it is not atheist sinners Christians are go on in sin, they don't have their sins washed away. It is only those people who have faith in Jesus and they follow him. They're the ones who have their sins washed away, because 1: they agree and they believe that Jesus is the son of God and that he is the only way to heaven. 2: because they believe that with such a strong conviction that they want to obey him, and so in their hearts they know not to lie, they know not to steal, they know not to cheat, they know not to bribe, they know not to drink, they know not to curse, they know not to follow the world and get all in tangled in the ways of this generation, they know not to to fall to sexual immorality, they know not to practice fornication.

Dear friends, they know these things and so what they do is because they know it because they want to be with the Lord and because they have faith in him, they leave sin. They turn away from it. They know not to do it, because they love Jesus. And because they do, they have his blood wash their sins away, they have his power come in to their life and they no longer need to follow sin because he sets him free, and they are able to follow the way that leads to the kingdom of heaven. Now who do you want to be? The people who just go back to the world and go to hell, or the people who know the reality of Christ so they turn from their sins and they follow him and they enter the kingdom of heaven! Who do you want to be? The lateral or the former?...
