It is so sad when we see people lost, lost in their sins, lost in their flesh, lost in darkness, lost in deceit.
Those people need to see the light, these people have to wake up, these people have to surrender to the only true Lord and Savior, the Son of God: Jesus Christ.
Why is it so hard for some people to grasp something so simple as salvation?
Satan works hard against repentance, against true repentance... He will do everything to hold you in your sins, in darkness.
It is so hard, so hard to surrender to the Truth. Especially nowadays, when we have so many technology, so many things to fill our eyes, so much entertainment, so much deception, so many traps.
The world is deceiving, it tries to elude us, it tries to say: "Hey, stay here... Love me, and stay here! Have fun in your evil pleasures. There is nothing better than this"
Why is it so hard for people to stay walking with the Lord, and carry their cross to the end?!
Satan works hard against repentance... He tries to tell us that we do not have to stay with the Lord.
He tries to give us the impression that if we remain in Him, if we strive to please Him, if we strive to walk according to His Spirit and deny ourselves, deny our flesh... That we are falling from grace and working to be saved.
Satan makes that seems that we are working to be saved... That we are not trusting in the Lord for our salvation.
"So likewise you, when you have done all those things which you are commanded, say,
We are unprofitable servants. We have done what was our duty to do." - Luke 17:10
I repeat: Satan does not play. And he will carry many, many people to hell with him.
Why?! Because people simply does not surrender to the Lord. People does not hear His words, they do not take Him seriously.
Many people are deceived by Satan that they do not have to change their lives, that they should not do what the Lord taught us to.
And I can say without any doubt: That is a deception. And it is leading many, many people to hell.
People who do not surrender to the Lord, do not deny themselves and say: "Lord, Lord... I am yours, take my life in your hands. I want to please you and to follow you, I want to be your sheep, I want to have life".
And how hard Satan works against repentance, against full, and I repeat full submission to the Lord and His words.
Who would ever argue against Him? Who would fight against His words?
Satan works very hard against Him... He does not want to see people denying themselves, their pleasures, their desires, their flesh, this evil world and its habits.
He wants to take every of us to hell with him... He tries to deceive us by saying: "This is just your flesh... It is normal, the Lord understands"
The truth is that, many will say to Him in that Day... Many will seek to enter and they will not be able.
And many surely will not understand why because they were deceived, they did not hear the Lord nor obeyed His Gospel.
It is because they did not hear the Lord, they did not obeyed Him, they preferred to listen to Satan and their flesh.
"Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 18:4
In the name of the Lord Jesus, I tell you: "Surrender, surrender to Me before it is too late".
Or do you think the Lord will punish anyone who lived as He desired and loved Him: To seek to depart from sin, deny their flesh, deny themselves, carry their cross, hate their lives to full obedience of Christ.
I know Satan makes many people to think that... He tells you that: "It is by grace... No need to repent, no need to please Him... No need to surrender".
Do not be deceived, no one can love the Lord Jesus Christ, no one can love God and do what is pleasant in His sight without His grace, His saving mercy and grace.
It is by His grace alone, and through faith alone that we seek to please Him, and stay with Him... That we seek to deny ourselves daily, and say NO to all that is unholy, and to live according to His Spirit.
We may fail sometimes, but when we fail we suffer, we cry, we repent and pray and seek to do what is right next time, because we love Him. Please, start loving Him today.
"But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him." - 1 Corinthians 8:3
"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,
who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit." - Romans 8:1
I know where I was about 1 year ago, and from where the Lord took me from... I tell you my testimony here, because I have experienced the grace of God, the true grace of God... I have experienced His love. I can tell you: There is nothing better in this world than to walk in His light. Do not be deceived.
I have faced many obstacles, many traps of Satan who tried to stop me and go back... Satan really tries very hard against true repentance.
I had the same difficulties anyone find in the flesh: Vices, addictions, bad habits, evil desires, idolatry, the love for earthly things.
And I can tell you that by the grace of God alone, through faith alone... By seeking, praying, and watching and applying His instructions I have been winning against all those things. Through faith in Him. To Him be the glory.
"If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" - Luke 11:13
Satan always come with excuses: "It is all OK, by His grace you are OK... No need to repent, no need to flee from evil, it is just how you are"
Satan is a liar, a big deceiver... And he is deceiving many... In the name of the Lord Jesus: "Do not play with your salvation. Deny yourselves and take your cross".
"For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it." - Matthew 16:25
Who is the only who would fight against a holy life? Who is the only who would fight against true repentance?!
Only Satan would fight against those things... And I see there are many people who resist the Holy Spirit, who resist full submission of their lives to the Lord.
And this will surely, lead many, many to destruction. Do not hear Satan... Hear the Lord, obey Him by faith, and have life.
"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.
Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’
And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’" - Matthew 7:21-23
I do not know how many will believe in what I am writing... But I just hope you do not cry and suffer everlasting torment for not believing and receiving the truth.
"There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out." - Luke 13:28
In the name of the Lord Jesus: "Surrender, surrender to Me before it is too late". It is time to surrender, says the Lord.
"for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." - Romans 14:17
Glory to God! Amen.
