Persistently Walking In God’s Will Is Necessary

November 26, 2013

Friends,
Jesus says, “Whoever does God’s will is My brother and sister and mother.” (Mark 3:35; see also Mt. 12:50) In other words, regardless of what they thought they were accomplishing in His name (Mt. 7:22,23), only those who do the Father’s will belong to Him and will thus be found worthy of entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven. (v. 21) Only “the man who does the will of God lives forever.” (1 John 2:17)

Who are the ones who do God’s will and therefore belong to Him? They “are those who hear God’s Word and put it into practice.” (Luke 8:21) Those who do not do so will reap complete destruction (6:49) even if they call Jesus “Lord”. (v. 46 // Mt. 7:21) Even someone who has the Spirit, if they turn from His rule and instead sow to please the sinful nature, that person will reap destruction –eternal destruction. (Mt. 24:45-51 // 1 Cor. 3:16,17 // Gal. 6:8) Such a person has trampled Jesus, crucified Him again, disdained the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, insulted the Spirit (Heb. 6:4-6 & 10:26-29), deserted and disowned God (Gal. 1:6 // Titus 1:16), and has fallen from His love (John 15:6,10), kindness (Rom. 11:22), and grace. (Gal. 5:4)

I strongly urge everyone reading this to look up those verses, for this doctrine is not being taught hardly anywhere –in spite of the fact that this is what God’s Word absolutely does teach. –In spite of the fact that this is the Gospel Jesus and the apostles preached. All other gospels have zero saving value. (1 Cor. 15:1,2 // Gal. 1:6,7 // 2 John 1:9)

Therefore, the Word of God warns, “Repent of your evil deeds, your self-seeking, and your rejection of the Truth” (see Rom. 2:8), for God, who shows no favoritism (v. 11) brings down His wrath (v. 8 again) on all who stubbornly cling to unrighteousness. (v. 5) “You also, you whose deeds are lukewarm [see Rev. 3:15], are about to be spewed out of God’s mouth.” (v. 16) “Because of your incomplete obedience to God’s Word, God’s love has not been made complete in you, and you are not prepared for the Day of Judgement.” (See 1 John 2:5,6 & 4:16,17 // Rev. 3:2 // also 2 Thes. 1:8,9 and 2 Peter 1:10,11)

However, “To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor, and immortality, He will give eternal life.” (Rom. 2:7) Doing good is absolutely necessary. (John 5:29) –And doing so persistently.

Sincerely,
with love,
Rachel
