COST OF TRUE DISCIPLESHP

In our generation, satan is leading millions of people to hell,he's achieving this by sending demons in human form or human agents of darkness to claim that God showed them heaven and hell,and even make descriptions that sound so believable(demons were in heaven and know the description of things that go on in heaven).
Then all that demon or agent of darkness has to do next is dress in ways that they know will lead people to hell,or act in ungodly ways.
Without even saying a word,they will be preaching to many with their lifestyles and dressing,leading them to hell.
And why is that?
Because people don't want to make the bible the standard for their life.
They want to make other people the standard for their life.
But God won't judge you basing on the lifestyle of someone who had a heaven or hell testimony,or if your life was aligning to the life of that famous prophet or prophetess,or if it was aligning to the life of your pastor's wife.
He will judge you based on if your life was aligning to the word of God,Regardless of who else was living in disobedience.They too will give an account of their own lives.
That's why we must keep our eyes on Jesus,not people.
If the word of God says something is sinful,then it's sinful regardless of who else is doing it.Even if they are people you look up to or people so mightily used by God.
God respects only His word.
I get so heartbroken when you show people the word of God and they admit to what the bible says but their excuse for wanting to continue in disobedience is,"but that famous prophet's wife does the same,or but that anointed evangelist said it's okay (despite God's word saying it's not okay),or but that person with a heaven and hell testimony does the same."
That's so heartbreaking because it just shows how we have put our trust in man,instead of the word of God.
My question for you is;will God excuse your sin when you tell Him,"God,I knew your word said this is a sin but I just did it because someone with a heaven and hell testimony was doing it too?"
Will God tell you,"Oh, that's okay then.Come into My holy kingdom?"
We all know that won't happen.
God respects only His word.
His question to you will be,"was your life in alignment to My Word? "
Jesus Christ is our only Saviour.
Let's keep our eyes on Him,be led by His Spirit,read and live His word.
Remember that narrow is the way that leads to life and very few walk in it,and broad is the way that leads to hell and many walk in it. "mathew 7v13-27
The majority of the people are walking in the broad way.from creation, the majority have always been lost (e.g noah's time genesis chapter 6 and soddom and gomorah) don't follow the spirit of majority!
If you keep your eyes on people instead of God,you will find that you are walking in that broad road leading to hell without even realising it.Jesus is the only way to heaven John 14:6 .imitate him alone not anyone else "1 CORINTHIANS 4v16
The people walking in this broad way are not just outsiders,they are people who are called Christians.
They are Christians and yet there's no difference between them and the people of the world.
The bible says very few walk in the narrow way.
Why is that?
Because it's too narrow and uncomfortable to the flesh.The flesh wants to walk in the broad way where it can be free to do its sinful desires.
That's why the flesh must die if you are to walk here.
It's too narrow that it won't allow any single thing to come with you.
That man in the parable Jesus told had to sale ALL that he had just to get the pearl."mathew 13:45-46.
He sold EVERYTHING because he knew how precious that pearl was.
That is talking about the Kingdom of God.
You have to give up everything,all your flesh wants,all your ungodly dressing,ungodly talk,ungodly movies and music,EVERYTHING that's not of God,just so that you can get that pearl.
Jesus said whoever holds in to their life will lose it,and whoever gives up their life for Him will find it. (John 12:25).
To be a christian you have to totally surrender to God.
Be willing to let go of anything if God just tells you He doesn’t want it in your life.Thats surrender.
When we surrender in some areas only,while holding on to some parts of our lives,it's unacceptable to God.We will be rejected,even the people of the world will be better than us.
The hottest place in hell is reserved for Christians. (even though all of hell is terrible beyond description).
But Christians will be punished so much more.Why?Because you knew God and yet didn't obey.And because with your lifestyle you caused God's name to be blasphemed,and with your lifestyle you closed out so many other people who would have accepted Jesus if you had shined as the light of the world."mathew 5:13-16.
So there's no middle ground,if you want to be a christian,you have to surrender your whole life.God wants your whole life or nothing.This goes for me as well.
Jesus didn't hide the cost of being His disciple,He made the cost clear for anyone who wants to be His follower.
" If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish."Luke 14:26-30
So we are not supposed to go into Christianity blindly,we are to weigh the cost and decide if it's worth it.
You lose your whole life and live for someone else (Jesus ).You have no say over how you act or think or dress,you are ruled by someone else and obey Him fully.You follow only where He leads you? you don't go where you want.His will,not yours.But it will get you eternal life.Is it worth it to you?That's a question each must answer and act on accordingly.
" For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. "John 3:16
Jesus gave up His life for you so you may live.But it's for you and i to accept that love and life,God will never force it on anyone.1st john 2:15-17 "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. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever".
You can not be a friend of the world and a friend of God at the same time.if you stand Your ground as a friend of the world, you make your stance as an enemy of God. " James 4:4
We have to make a choice.
deutronomy 30v19 " I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
God has given us a choice, life (Jesus) or death (world), blessing or curse
Which one will you choose?If it's Him,you will have to lose your whole life,but eternal life awaits you.If it's the world,you will do as you please and live away from God,obeying only the flesh,but even after this life,you will have to continue living away from God, in a place void of His presence (hell).He won't forcefully bring you to heaven to be with Him.He will respect the choice you make today. examine yourself, are you on the narrow path? God bless you beloved.
