Beware, you are being targeted by satan...
Do you call yourself a Christian? Then this message is for you...
Beware not only of false christs but of false christians
Matthew 24:4-5 And Jesus answered and said to them, Take heed that no man deceive you. (5) For many will come in My name, saying, I am Christ, and will deceive many.
False christs are not only those that profess to be Christ, but also the doctrines of Christ which are false. False doctrines make a false christ and cause people to believe in a christ that does not bring salvation, but rather leads people, in hellish doctrines, directly into judgement. Remember that satan will come to deceive the elect, and if you believe that you are of the elect that means he will come to deceive you, if he can, by making you believe in doctrines of men and of demons. False Christians believe in a false christ (they are those that are not rooted and grounded in the truth [from scripture]). Don't believe your pastor, don't believe me, don't believe anyone, until you have shown yourself more worthy than those of Thessalonica. Be a Berean. Study the word of God prayerfully and show yourself approved, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, when you stand before Christ to give an account.
Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgment,
Also remember that Christ is coming to judge His church
Romans 14:10-12 But why do you judge your brother? Or also why do you despise your brother? For all shall stand before the judgment seat of Christ. (11) For it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God." (12) So then each one of us will give account concerning himself to God.
Don't buy into the idea that you will not be judged, you will, we all will. Also, don't believe that you will not be judged by your works, you will be. You are not saved by works, since nobody's works can save them, but your works demonstrate if you are in Christ or not. That is why Christ tells us we must remain faithful until the end.
Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Revelation 2:26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations
Your works will show if you are the Lord's or if you belong to sin.
Romans 6:16 Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves as slaves for obedience, you are slaves to him whom you obey; whether it is of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness.
There is covenant with Christ
If you have entered into covenant with Christ, you have a responsibility to keep your end of the agreement. You are to walk holy, even as He is holy, for:
Hebrews 12:14-17 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: (15) Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; (16) Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. (17) For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.
1 Peter 1:16 because it is written, "Be holy, for I am holy."
Be a vessel of honour; a vessel of gold and silver rather than a vessel of wood and of earth:
2 Timothy 2:19-26 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. (20) But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. (21) If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. (22) Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (23) But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. (24) And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, (25) In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; (26) And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
Don't believe in the hippy Jesus that accepts ALL weather or not they receive Him or walk in repentance. He makes it clear that those who love Him, will follow His commandments, thereby proving their love for Him.
John 14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me. And he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will reveal Myself to him.
Don't be deceived by vanity. If you worship God but believe in and teach vain doctrines you worship God in vain:
Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Do not say to yourself that Jesus will not return soon; and therefor live in sin
Please note: The Lord, in this passage, is speaking to believers (servants) but some servants turn to wickedness and evil and God's words for that one are very strong.
Matthew 24:48-51 But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delays His coming, (49) and shall begin to strike his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken, (50) the Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he does not look for Him, and in an hour which he does not know. (51) And He shall cut him apart and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The real Jesus is coming at an hour you do not expect
Matthew 24:43-44 But know this, that if the steward of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched and would not have allowed his house to be dug through. (44) Therefore you also be ready, for in that hour you think not, the Son of Man comes.
Don't be a foolish virgin (virgins are those who have entered into relationship with Jesus Christ)
Matthew 25:1-13 Then shall the kingdom of Heaven be likened to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. (2) And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. (3) The foolish ones took their lamps, but took no oil with them. (4) But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. (5) While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. (6) And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes! Go out to meet him. (7) Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. (8) And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps have gone out. (9) But the wise answered, saying, No, lest there be not enough for us and you. But rather go to those who sell, and buy for yourselves. (10) And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came. And they who were ready went in with him to the marriage, and the door was shut. (11) Afterwards the other virgins came also, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. (12) But he answered and said, Truly I say to you, I do not know you. (13) Therefore watch, for you do not know either the day or the hour in which the Son of Man comes.
Luke 6:44-46 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. (45) A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth the good. And an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth the evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. (46) And why do you call Me Lord, Lord, and do not do what I say?
Matthew 7:21-23 Not everyone who says to Me, Lord! Lord! shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven. (22) Many will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works? (23) And then I will say to them I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!
Therefor be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might
Galatians 5:13-16 For, brothers, you were called to liberty. Only do not use the liberty for an opening to the flesh, but by love serve one another. (14) For all the Law is fulfilled in one word, even in this, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." (15) But if you bite and devour one another, take heed that you are not consumed by one another. (16) I say, then, Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.
Present yourselves a living sacrifice
Romans 12:1-3 I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service. (2) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is that good and pleasing and perfect will of God. (3) For I say, through the grace given to me, to every one who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think. But set your mind to be right-minded, even as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Yes it is possible to lose your salvation if you are a foolish virgin
John 15:1-17 I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. (2) Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away. And every one that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bring forth more fruit. (3) Now you are clean through the Word which I have spoken to you. (4) Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. (5) I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. (6) If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather and cast them into the fire, and they are burned . (7) If you abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done to you. (8) In this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, so you shall be My disciples. (9) As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you; continue in My love. (10) If you keep My commandments, you shall abide in My love, even as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love. (11) I have spoken these things to you so that My joy might remain in you and your joy might be full. (12) This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. (13) No one has greater love than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (14) You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. (15) No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master does. But I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. (16) You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatever you shall ask of the Father in My name, He may give it to you. (17) These things I command you, that you love one another.
Matthew 22:36-40 Master, which is the great commandment in the Law? (37) Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. (38) This is the first and great commandment. (39) And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (40) On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.
Matthew 5:17-20 Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy but to fulfill. (18) For truly I say to you, Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law until all is fulfilled. (19) Therefore whoever shall relax one of these commandments, the least, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of Heaven. But whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of Heaven. (20) For I say to you that unless your righteousness shall exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the kingdom of Heaven.
So you might ask how is it possible that anyone can be saved?
Matthew 19:25-26 When His disciples heard, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? (26) But Jesus looked on them and said to them, With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
What must we do to be saved?
Acts 2:37-39 And hearing this, they were stabbed in the heart, and said to Peter and to the other apostles, Men, brothers, what shall we do? (38) Then Peter said to them, Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ to remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (39) For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all those afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call.
