"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." - Matthew 7 V21

"These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honour Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me, and in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men" - Matthew 15 V8, 9

The Lord Jesus warned that broad is the way toward destruction and there are many on this path and narrow is the path to the kingdom of God and few are on this path. Satan is active in spreading his false doctrine and deceiving people and he has blinded many people. Even in the so called Christian outreaches we see false prophets and deceivers spreading lies and prosperity gospel. The truth is, Christ told His followers that they will have to pay a heavy price to follow him. Life will have many trials and tribulations and true Christians will be tried and their faith tested. Let us examine our lives and find out where we are. Do we just superficially worship the Lord or are we seriously serving the Lord? The Lord has promised us a glorious eternal life but while we are still living in this deceiving world, we will have to bear our own cross. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
