Do you Know Jesus

salvation11

Are you heartbroken for those that have decided to reject Christ?  Do you care that many will not enter into Heaven?  The reality is that many think that they do not have to believe on the name of Jesus Christ.  Some may claim to believe on Jesus but in their works they deny him. They might use his name for their own personal gain.  False prophets use the name of Jesus to deceive others into giving them money.

Do you know Jesus?  Do you know him in name only or do you seek Jesus through prayer and searching the scriptures?  Can someone look at your life and say, “He or she is a Christian.”  Do you love Jesus the way you claim to?  Do you care about others or do you care about your own life more?  Do you care about your wealth and riches more than giving to others in need?

Some will say: “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?” (Matthew 7:22) Jesus told us that one day he will say to some that profess him, “I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.” (Luke 13:27)

Not all those that claim they believe on Jesus will enter into Heaven. The Devils believe and tremble (James 2:19).  Jesus said in Matthew 5:20, “For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.”  Jesus gave us a great description of righteousness. He said in Matthew 7:17, “Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.”  This tells me that a righteous person bears righteousness and fruit meet for repentance (Matthew 3:8).

Matthew 7:23-And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Matthew 5:2-16- And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,  Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.  Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.  Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.  Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.  Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.  Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.  Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
