I’m a christian today, because I follow Christ’ steps, nothing more. It’s not funny feelings and mystical experiences that makes you a good Christian, but Followership!
Rely 100% on the Word, not on visions, not hearing voices, nor the supernatural. Many of those mysterious encounters turns out to be false alarms anyway.
What’s the first kind of calling we’re all familiar with?
Jesus said, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19. Be ye good followers! Peter says, “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also….leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps.” 1 Peter 2:21.
From whence come deceptions amongst us? What‘s causing it are people who go beyond the norms, people who start hearing voices, and brag about seeing visions. One thing about supernatural experiences is you don’t know the source – that’s why it needs to be proven.
Jesus said, ”Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.” Revelation 2:5
The first works: you my friend, “be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children.” And, “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises” Hebrews 6:12.
Who, what and whom do you yourself follow?
You never go wrong on following scripture! He said be followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. No matter how much people try to change the definition of faith, it still remains the same, Hebrews 11:1-2 , “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.” All said here concerns the Word of Truth – the Bible. Read it, believe it, follow it, trust it. For by it the elders obtained a good report. It is “….a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed…” 2 Peter 1:19.
Be careful who you follow; not all have the spirit of Christ. Listen diligently, and carefully consider their manner of conversation. Follow only those who will cause you to obtain. Don’t pursue after every junk mail in town. 2019
- Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children.
“And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?” 1 Peter 3:13. Nobody!
