I Never Knew You
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheeps clothing…….Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter ….but he WHO DOES the WILL of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me….I did this and that in Your Name and I will declare to them, I Never Knew you; depart from Me, you practice evil. Matthew 7:15-16, 21-23
These words of Christ , bring a shiver to heart of the lost and a warning to any believer! In these last days we must be sure to be listening and obeying the voice of the Holy Spirit. Jesus made it clear that in these days, there will be many false teachings in the church and in the world. False teachers/prophets can even look Christian and speak Christianese, but are their words in line with the Word of God? How do their teachings line up with Christs teachings and ways? Beware, be careful. Your soul and future depend upon hearing God. T.D Jakes says if the enemy wants to destroy the plan of God in your life, all he has to do is stop you from hearing God. When you dont hear from God, you can and will be deceived. It can happen to anyone and they can even do signs and wonders in the awesome authority of Christ, but Jesus does not recognise them.
Loving God means we must lay down our lives to Him and desire His Will not our own. When we put our will, our desires and our plans before Gods will for our lives, we can become vulnerable and get off track.
When was the last time you honestly spent time asking God , Father what is your Will for me? Show me if I am not doing and living in all you have ordained for me.
God loves you so much, but He must have all your heart. You must love Me with all your heart, your mind, your soul and your strength. Matt 22:37.
Jesus said , You will know them by their fruits…….a good tree bears good fruit but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree CANNOT bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit…… By this you will know them, by their fruits. Matt 7:16-20
What is the fruit of someone who is living and abiding in Jesus Christ?
Love , joy, peace, patience and long suffering, kindness , gentleness and self control. These are the manifestation which grow out from living in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This is what pleases God and is His will for every believer. Read the red letter Words of Christ Christians!! Then Live by Them!
