Doing things that are not wrong would send a lot of people to the wrong place…
Luke 10: 38-42
38 As Jesus and his disciples went on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha welcomed him in her home. 39 She had a sister named Mary, who sat down at the feet of the Lord and listened to his teaching. 40 Martha was upset over all the work she had to do, so she came and said, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come and help me!”41 The Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha! You are worried and troubled over so many things, 42 but just one is needed. Mary has chosen the right thing, and it will not be taken away from her.”
Martha did nothing wrong, but Jesus rebuked her, not because that was not right, it was not the most important. The Pharisees did nothing wrong by trying to serve God perfectly but the Lord rebuked them (their perfection became to their standard and not His). Scripture says:
21 “Not everyone who calls me ‘Lord, Lord’ will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only those who do what my Father in heaven wants them to do.
For you to call someone your lord, you must be under him or have accepted to be, when Jesus said this, He wasn’t referring to the “unsaved” (He is their Lord, but they don’t call Him one), NO, He was referring to the “saved”. It’s not wrong to call, accept and make Him your Lord; yet He rebukes them (once the motive is faulty).
15 I know what you have done; I know that you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were either one or the other! 16 But because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I am going to spit you out of my mouth!
I will pour them out that are neither hot nor cold. Let’s analyse this; there are only two concepts in existence: God and the devil, now when God knowing this says you’re neither of them, what does He mean? This requires you to settle down and think- be still; when someone is not of God, automatically, he is of the devil (and vice versa), God knows this, but do you? Now can someone be of God and not of God? YES, can someone be of the devil and not be of the devil, NO, the bible says
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…
My people perish because of lack of KNOW-legde, when you do things that are not wrong, you THINK you have done right, listen to me, there is only one right! And that right is JESUS, those the book of revelation was referring to, were or are those that think they know Him, not those that know the know Him. Right-Choice people not Righteous people; the former have done nothing wrong but still have not done anything right! Let’s look at it mathematically (parable of maths…lol),once you miss the First formula, no matter how right the other formulas are, you will never get the correct answer, so also it is with Christianity, once you miss the first and most important step, all the rest no matter how good the world sees it becomes useless,
(1+1= 3, 2+2= 4, total =7 wrong even though the 2nd step was correct)
again still with maths, if your 1st step is correct but along the line you make a mistake, unless you realize, and correct, you would end up with a wrong answer, likewise Christianity, if you have drifted away, unless you confess and forsake not just your evil but wrong ways; you will end up in a terrible way. Those that do wrong know they are wrong so it’s easy for them to repent, those that do not do right (actually think they do), don’t know they are wrong so it’s more difficult for them to repent! Wait, what are they repenting from? That’s the point! haha! Sounds familiar… Jesus is the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Him… John 14:6 nkjv
Hi, unless you have said yes to Jesus (in case you haven’t and want to, kindly follow this linkhttps://bib4le.wordpress.com/yes-to-jesus/to do so and also know why you are), all your works with Him might be useful but at the end of the day, you will just be useless…
