(3 min vid) Real Christians’ Righteousness is Not ‘Filthy Rags’

Not everyone’s works of righteousness are as filthy rags to God. Take for example the words of Jesus found in Revelation chapter 3 to the Church of Sardis. Jesus tells them that there are few there that have not defiled their robes. He says that they are worthy because He has found them to be in their clean robes. They have been washed clean. He says that He will not blot their name out of the Lamb’s Book of Life.

If we go with Jesus, if we actually repent of our sins, Jesus cleanses us, He washes our old lifestyle away, and the sins of our past we will leave behind. In John chapter 8 Jesus makes it very clear that those who sin, even if they are Christians, are slaves of sin, and that a slave will not abide in the house forever, but Jesus says a SON will abide forever, therefore if the Son sets you free you are free indeed.

What do you think will happen to those Christians that think that everyone’s acts of righteousness are filthy rags? One day they will stand before God, they will make it into the kingdom and they will think they have made it, they will sit down at the table and exactly as the parable goes in Matthew chapter 22, the angels will be sent out, those Messengers, and they will say “How did you get in here?” And when the Master of the House realizes that there is a man in there called a Christian who made it all the way into the kingdom without the wedding garments, He will say to the servants, “Bind him hand and foot and cast him into outer darkness.” And that man will be left speechless because he thought that everyone in the Kingdom had filthy clothes on just as himself. But those who make it into the kingdom of heaven that are welcome, they make it in with their white garments, they are washed clean and they will be welcome because they are right with the Lord.

Are you right with the Lord today? Or are you like the Christians who quote Isaiah chapter 64 telling everyone that they can’t repent, that everyone will be wicked and any righteousness is filthy before God. These Christians twist the truth, they make the righteousness of God unholy and they call on unholiness righteousness. Make sure that you know Jesus, prepared because He is coming. May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Do you listen to His voice?

Jesus said:”My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me.” If you have accepted Jesus and you listen to Him, He will teach and guide you.

Jesus called me. One night many years ago, I woke up and I clearly heard these words:”Go into all the world an make disciples of all nations. Go where I send you. Take their hand and put it in My hand and I will guide them.”

Jesus guides my footsteps and He warns me of danger. Years ago I used to preach at a church in the townships on Sundays. It was a very dangerous area. One Sunday morning I woke up at 4 in the morning. I had just dreamed that I was in the township on my way to the church and had been shot. Jesus was telling me not to go. The very next day Christian missionaries  were shot and killed in the same area. 

In the corporate work situation, Jesus guided me, gave me wisdom in business decisions. In the home, Jesus guided me in the discipline and bringing up of my children. In my marriage, my relationship with my wife, Jesus guides me. In all things, I seek His guidance and approval.

Jesus speaks to all His children but many do not listen. They follow their own mind and they follow the advice of other people.

We cannot please Jesus and bear fruit for His kingdom if we do not listen to Him and obey Him. 

That is why many Christians will end up in hell. They are stubborn and disobedient. they follow after their own ways and the ways of the world, and they ignore Jesus when He speaks to them.

Without Jesus, we can do nothing. If we want to enter His kingdom, we have to listen to Him and obey Him. If we stray from Jesus we will perish. 

Seek Jesus with all your heart. Live your life to please Him. Pray, wait on Him. Listen and obey when He speaks to you and He will guide you all the way, until the end.

May Jesus bless you. Continue reading “(3 min vid) Do you listen to His voice? — Jesus said: “My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me””
