BELIEVING IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST LEADS TO ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN
At this point in time, I want us to dig deep through the help of The Holy Spirit so us to understand a very important and the most critical requirement for every human being on the earth.
The First point we need to note is that a person who is born again, is a person who believes that Jesus Christ is The LORD, Master and Saviour of their life. Therefore anybody who claims to be born again must believe in The LORD Jesus Christ. In other words, all those who believe in The LORD Jesus Christ, as the one who was sent to take away all their sins through The Cross and The Blood are indeed The Born Again Sons and daughters of The LORD. They will thus accept The LORD Jesus Christ as their personal saviour. This is very well captured in the book of 1st John 5:1 which states as follows: “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.”
The Second point that we need to note is that those who believe in The LORD Jesus Christ must obey the commands of The LORD by following the ways and the requirements of The LORD. When they do this, then they will know The LORD and will find and continue to find favour with The LORD. They will have attained and embraced a very critical commandment of Loving The LORD God Almighty with all their hearts and with all their souls. This is very powerfully captured in the book of 1st John 5:2-3 which states as follows: “This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome.” The same is also very well captured in the book of Mathew 22:37-40 which states as follows: ‘“Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”’ Likewise, the same is also very powerfully captured in the book of Exodus 33:12-13 which states as follows: ‘“ Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me, ‘Lead these people,’ but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. You have said, ‘I know you by name and you have found favor with me.’ If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.”’
The Third point that we need to note is that all those who believe that The LORD Jesus Christ is the Son of God, sent to redeem mankind are victorious because they are now born again; they thus have effectively overcome the world and her evil desires due to their belief in The One and Only Son of God: The LORD Jesus Christ. This is very powerfully captured in the book of 1st John 5: 4-5 which states as follows: ‘“for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”’
The Fourth point that we need to note is that The Holy Spirit testifies about The Son of God (The LORD Jesus Christ). So The Holy Spirit testifies in the hearts of the Born again Children of God that Jesus Christ is LORD, Master and Saviour. The Holy Spirit thus dwells in the body of those who are born again, for they are now born of The Spirit of God. They now have the word of God within them, and by the word of their testimony (through The Holy Spirit), they overcome the devil and his evil forces. This is very powerfully captured in the book of 1st John 5:6-10 which states as follows: ‘“This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.”’ The same is also very beautifully and very powerfully captured in the book of John 3: 5-8 which states as follows: ‘“Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”’ This is also powerfully summarized in the book of Revelation 12:11 which states as follows: “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.”
The Fifth point that we need to note is that through this testimony of the word of God, who is actually The LORD Jesus Christ (Through The Holy Spirit) leads to Eternal Life. This means that to those whom The Holy Spirit is indwelt in them (as they have become the temple of The Holy Spirit) and is testifying to and through their heart that Jesus Christ is LORD, Master and Saviour have received eternal life and will enter into Heaven and will stay with The Father in Heaven forever and ever i.e. for eternity. This is very powerfully captured in the book of 1st John 5:11-13 which states as follows: ‘“And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”’ This is also as well very powerfully captured in the book of John 3: 16-18 which states as follows: ‘“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”’
The Sixth point that we need to note is that The LORD God Almighty (Our Father who at in Heaven) hears the prayer of those who believe in His Son The LORD Jesus Christ and so have effectively Repented of their sins and are thus walking in Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. The LORD will thus answer them according to His Perfect will and Perfect timing. This is very powerfully captured in the book of 1st John 5:14-15 which states as follows: ‘“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.”’The same is also very beautifully captured in the book of James 5:16 which states as follows: “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” Yet the same is also very well captured in the book of 1st Peter 3:12 which states as follows: “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” The same is also very beautifully captured in the book of Philippians 4:4-7 which states as follows: ‘“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”’
The Seventh point that we need to note is that having known the truth and thus been born again through believing in The LORD Jesus Christ through The Blood sacrifice paid at the Cross of Calvary, we now need to turn away from a lifestyle of sin, evil and wickedness. So we should not continue in sin, and should now not go back to sin and wickedness including idolatry, sexual immorality, hatred, anger, lack of self control, drunkenness, orgies, envy, witchcraft, murder, theft, pride, arrogance, violence, double-mindedness, slander, gossip etc. When we do this i.e. avoid continuing in sin, then The LORD promises us a very fundamental benefit and victory; and this is the fact that no harm from evil forces will come our way. This essentially means that you and me need not worry about the devil or demons and their associated demonic attacks; all we need to be concerned with is ensuring that we are spotless and blameless by now not continuing sinning and now running away from sin and a lifestyle of sin. The devil, demons and their associated demonic attacks will then be automatically be dealt with, we don't need to waste time or energy being concerned or worried about the devil, demons or demonic attacks. This is very powerfully captured in the book of 1st John 5:18-21 which states as follows: ‘“We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.”’This is also very well captured in the book of Hebrew 12:1-3 which states as follows: ‘“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”’The same is also very powerfully captured in the book of Isaiah 54:17 which states as follows: ‘“No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord.”’ Furthermore, this is also very conclusively captured in the book of James 4:7-10 which states as follows: ‘“ Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”’
Let Us Therefore believe in The LORD Jesus Christ, because through His Mighty Name and Precious & Most Powerful Blood do we receive Eternal Life. Let us thus embrace Repentance for the forgiveness of our sins and then walk in Righteousness (Right before The LORD by following the ways and the requirements of The LORD), Holiness (Set apart for the glory and honour of The LORD), Truth (Without deception, falsehood or lies) and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ (No lukewarmness; so we need to be hot for The LORD) in preparing the way for the very imminent coming of The LORD Jesus Christ to Rapture His Bride: Because Time is Absolutely Over!!!
SHALOM!!! SHALOM!!! SHALOM!!!
PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!
