“I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars." (Rev 2:2).
It is not just enough to say follow Jesus though it might seem super spiritual, but it is in fact only a religious cliche. But it becomes quite enough when we say, 'Follow me as I follow Jesus.' Any one who is called by God as leaders can preach and teach the Word of God to even save many people from the fire of hell through it, but if they themselves remain unsaved, they will finally not be able to avoid hell fire which will burn them forever and ever.
A person can do sign, wonders and miracles like prophesying, drive demons and work all kinds of supernatural acts through their calling upon their lives which is a gift of grace given by God to them irrespective of the spiritual work of salvation within them or achieving spiritual fruits after salvation through their walk with God. But just because they do the work for God cannot qualify them for heaven, because the work of God in Christ Jesus is the only thing that has the potential to qualify even the vilest sinner to become a saint to avoid hell fire and embrace heaven. Jesus clearly taught how to find deception from truth in the life of people who are called to be ministers of God for us, if we just look for right doctrines, we will get deceived because wolf in sheep clothing can easily fool even the best of saints.
But if we look and value the fruit of God more than the gift of God in the lives of ministers of God who minister to us and value them accordingly, none can deceive us or misguide us from following Jesus because only the saved who follow Jesus Christ can truly become an example for the fellow sheep to follow the Lord, because they are not qualified by their work for God but by their belief in the work of Christ done for all to enter heaven which is the only acceptable work to God. All the rest of the work if saved will receive the reward from God! Become saved, before you try to save others from hell fire. Know that someone is saved before you try to get benefited from their gifts! Liars are those who speak about God without knowing God in reality in their own lives through salvation. Is it not evil to say something without knowing what it is in reality? In fact assumption ends in lawlessness and hell fire, and also leads the misguided one to the same place. Learn not to bear those who are evil and flee away from them, or else you become a part of their lives to get deceived yourself and be misguided away from following the Lord Jesus Christ. Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus Christ!
PRAY WITH ME SAINTS:
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you and praise you that you are teaching me to test the fruit of the person rather than the gift of those who minister your Word and Spirit, so that I will not be deceived in these dangerous end times and will be able to follow the Lord Jesus Christ just like those whom I follow whose life of faith follow them. Help me persevere and have patience to labor for your name's sake and not become weary. In Jesus mighty name, Amen! and Amen! Praise the Lord!
