ABOUT A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS AND RELIGIOUS RULES

ABOUT A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS AND RELIGIOUS RULES

"What Jesus wants is not just for us to follow a bunch of rules,but to have a relationship with Him."

This is a very common saying in modern Christianity and I 100% believe it and that's why I often use that phrase.
When many people hear that, they get excited,not because they are excited to have a relationship with Jesus, but because they think they are free to live anyway they like and just have a relationship with Jesus.
That's not true.
The real meaning of this statement is that Jesus does not want us to MERELY follow rules without us us being born of the Spirit and knowing Him.
A person who is merely following rules without truly being born again and accepting Jesus cannot be saved because the truth is that Jesus is the only Way to heaven.
So you must be born again.
Actually without being born of the Spirit, it is impossible to be holy. You will always be stuck in sin!
True biblical salvation is that you must receive Jesus,and accept Him as your Lord and Savior.
But now that Jesus is in your life,you will bear fruit of repentance showing you have been born of the Spirit of God.
What will show that you have been born of the Spirit is that now you will become holy,because you will have the fear of the Lord in you,and you will want to please God in all you do.
A person merely following rules is a person who hears of how God hates sin,but instead of first accepting Jesus and being born of the Spirit, this person does not surrender to God for Him to change them and fill them with His Spirit that will cause them to hate sin and love righteousness.
This person does not pursue and maintain a relationship with Jesus by reading the bible and praying.
Instead,this person decides with all their might that they will try their best not to sin again so that they will go to heaven.
But because it is impossible to be holy without Jesus,this person who does not have a relationship with Jesus (surrendering your life,depending on Jesus for strength to overcome, seeking Him daily by reading the bible and prayer),this person will always find themselves stuck in sin.
They really do want to be holy, and they really do want to go to heaven but they find themselves in habitual sin.Why?Because they are using the wrong way.There's no other way to heaven.
Jesus is the only way.
So while this person tries with all their might not to sin,they keep failing because only Jesus is holy and only Jesus can make a person holy.
What Jesus wants is for this person who is trying to go to heaven by trying with all their might not to sin,to recognize their need for a Savior, Jesus Christ.
And to accept Him as their Lord and Savior because He has already made a way with His blood.
Then after accepting Him He wants them to now have a close bond(relationship) with Him in order to overcome sin.
A relationship with Jesus is developed by reading His word,and obeying His word,praying, and completely surrendering and depending on Jesus to overcome.
So you don't just stay in your sin after hearing the word of God, you take the first step towards Jesus by repenting of your sins.
You abandon your sin,but then after repenting you start pursuing Jesus and staying close to Him because you know if you don't abide in Him,you will soon go back to your sin.
When you are relying on yourself to overcome, you won't see the need to pray daily or read the bible daily,and the result is that you will be walking in the flesh and will keep struggling with sin.
The fruits of the flesh in Galatians 5:19-26 will be in your life.
But when you know you depend on Jesus to help you overcome, then you will pray daily and you will read His word daily because you know how weak you are without Him and how easily you can fall into sin without Him.
So Christianity being about having a relationship with Jesus does not mean Christians are free to live in sin as long as they 'have a relationship with Jesus'.
Two can't walk together unless they agree,if a person has a relationship with Jesus, there's no way they will comfortably live in sin.
That's why even the new testament is full of lists of things God doesn't want His children to do.(1 Corinthians 6:9,revelations 21:8 etc).
A relationship with Jesus is recognizing your need for a Savior and accepting Him,depending on Him to save you from your sin.
You don't continue living in sin,if you continue living in sin then you don't have a relationship with Jesus because a tree is know by its fruit.
This is the rest Jesus promised.
Rest from the labour of me trying so hard with all my might to please Him,and now am resting by abiding in Jesus and He helps me stay away from sin.
This is the freedom He's given us,; not freedom TO sin but freedom FROM our sin.
Instead of me trying with all my might not to sin,depending on myself without having Jesus in my life,now Jesus has given me rest by accepting Him and He fills me with His Holy Spirit so that I don't depend on my strength to overcome, the Holy Spirit gives me strength. Because I know how vulnerable I am without Jesus,therefore I make sure to stay really close to Him, by reading his word daily, and praying daily, depending on Him and asking for His help in everything.
I stay close to Him and I no longer find His commandments burdensome, I find His yoke light because as I seek Him daily He causes me to hate what He hates and love what He loves,therefore I no longer struggle to obey,but instead i take delight in obeying Him because I love Him.
Having a relationship with Jesus doesn't make me stay in sin,instead it makes me more holy because I start to find sin tormenting, and I delight in obeying Jesus.
This is what a relationship with Jesus is and it is very real and it is the only way to overcome sin.

    God bless you for delivering his massage to his people. The word of God says you shall know the truth and it shall set you free. I thank God for raising you in these last days, so that his church will be holy as he is holy. Because without holiness no one will enter the kingdom of God.

Hi friends, I'd like to share a short testimony that has happened today and has shocked me,which has brought to me

Hi friends, I'd like to share a short testimony that has happened today and has shocked me,which has brought to me the reality of Romans 8:28 which says, "And we know that ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THOSE WHO LOVE GOD, TO THOSE WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE."

We have our own plans, but God also has His plans for our lives and the Bible says His plans for us are to make us prosper and not to harm us Jeremiah 29:11.

When I graduated from University, my dream was to work at a well known media house and therefore made various applications.

However, I did not get a response from the media house that I wanted the most and I felt hurt because I thought that is what was the best for me. Instead I got accepted at another media house which is also famous,but not as much as the one I wanted.

I wondered why after praying and fasting without ceasing, I could not get the job I really wanted and felt was the best for me.

Today shockingly,that media house which I so badly wanted to go to at first has been shut down with immediate effect by the Ministry of Information and broadcasting and their license revoked for allegedly violating terms of agreement.

Now I can not help but be in amazement that had I been there,this day I would have been rendered jobless.

Even though at first I may have felt that injustice was being done to me for not getting the job I thought was the best for me after praying,I realise that God is so good and I thank Him for not giving me that Job.

He did not give it to me because He knew that the future of that television station was doomed for closure. Tears fill my eyes as I reflect on this and I am overwhelmed by God's love for me as His child. God is always protective of His children and He always knows what is best for us.

This is for someone out there who may feel like some injustice is being done to them in some way. Remember that God is good all the time and His thoughts are not our thoughts Isaiah 55: 8-9.

What may seem like God harming us may actually be Him protecting us.

I really feel bad for those when have been rendered jobless from that institution and may the Lord open other doors for them.

DO NOT LOVE THE WORLD

DO NOT LOVE THE WORLD

Good evening friends,I'd like to share with you a vision the Lord gave me yesterday, which made me realise just how filthy the things of the world really are.

For people accustomed to doing worldly things,they may seem innocent and normal but in this vision,God made me see the things of the world the way He really sees them.

In this vision,I saw a transparent plastic water bucket which had a tap attached to it and a small basin under it.

I could see the water in this bucket as it was transparent and the water looked clean and even drinkable.

However to my surprise when the tap was opened, what came out from the tap was not water as expected but human diarrhoea instead! It was filling the basin quickly and spluttering all over the place.

I was disgusted and shocked.

Then I heard the Voice of the Lord say to me, "These are the things of the world"

So to the non spiritual eye there is nothing wrong with the things of the world but God in reality sees those things as filth.

Luke 16:15 part 2 says, "What is HIGHLY ESTEEMED AMONG MEN is an ABOMINATION in the sight of God.

1 John 2:15-17 also says,
"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

For those who may wonder what these things of the world are,here are a few scriptural references

1 Corinthians 6: 9-11
Revelations 21:8
Galatians Chapter 5

The bible is not exhaustive of things regarded as things of the world because new things keep coming up.

For example, secular TV and secular music(Non Christian Tv movies cartoons music etc) have been revealed by God to be unholy because they defile a Christian, but those things are not actually written down in the bible.

That is why the baptism of the Holy Spirit is needed in order for one to be individually guided by God in the right path as Jesus said that the Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth in John 16:13. It is also only with the help of the Holy Spirit that we receive a genuine change of heart and repentance.

To receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit one has to ask in prayer.

James 4:4 also says, "Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that FRIENDSHIP WITH THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? WHOEVER THEREFORE WANTS TO BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD MAKES HIMSELF AN ENEMY OF GOD.

We all know that there is no place in Heaven for enemies of God, but only wrath awaiting them in Hell.

However it is not God's will for us to perish and that is why He is telling us this today for our own salvation

URGENT MESSAGE FROM THE LORD:STOCK UP YOUR FOOD RESERVES!

Published

URGENT MESSAGE FROM THE LORD:STOCK UP YOUR FOOD RESERVES!

The Lord says everyone needs to stock up food because troubling times are coming upon the earth where you won't have access to food.
This is a message the Lord gave my sister in Christ in a prophetic dream in September last year when we were fasting.
I had already shared her dream here on Facebook,but am sharing this because its important.
In her dream things looked normal but in a moment there was destruction everywhere.
Cities had been cut off from each other.
There where huge holes on the roads, they looked like huge craters.
In the dream,she knew what was happening in her city was happening everywhere else.
As she was shocked at what was happening,
Then she heard the voice of God in a loud voice saying,"PREPARE FOR THE TIME THAT IS COMING. STORE UP FOOD.TELL EVERYONE TO PREPARE AND STORE FOOD.
PREPARE PREPARE PREPARE!!!"
The Lord said three times that we must prepare.
When God says something three times, it means it has been established to happen.
This post is not to bring fear to anyone, but its in order for you not to be caught unaware.
We must prepare spiritually by staying in prayer,fasting, and being vigilante.
But the Lord is also asking us to prepare physically by storing up food we can eat when that time comes.
Food even our children can eat.
Some people could dismiss this saying God will provide for them,but that same God is providing for you by warning you in advance.
If Noah didn't obey what God told him to build an ark,thinking God will supernaturally protect him from the flood,he would have perished.
But he had to take action by acting on what God told him.
We need to obey the Lord's instructions because then we will be safe.
We must do what the Lord says,then trust Him to keep us safe.
As we prepare physical food,we must also repent of our sins and ask for mercy for us,our families and the whole world.
Store non perishable food that can last for some time.
Start this month and keep adding to it every month,don't use the food,keep it for the time the Lord is talking about.
