Are you ONLY FOLLOWING JESUS CHRIST? (Matthew 16:24) (John 8:12).

Most likely many people now reading this will answer Yes.

Now, here is another question:

Are you following movie, music and other celebrities?

If the answer is Yes, then be made aware that to follow music, movie and other celebrities is follow the servants of the prince of this world, the devil, aka Satan and his angels (Revelation 9:20).

For those among us who may not know why celebrities are referred to as ‘stars’, it is point of reference to the fallen angels as it is written: “And his tail drew the third part of the [STARS] of heaven, and did cast them to the earth” (Revelation 12: 4).

WE MUST FOLLOW ONLY JESUS CHRIST:

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: ‘If any man will come after me, let him [DENY HIMSELF, AND TAKE UP HIS CROSS], and [FOLLOW ME]’” (Matthew 16:24).

“And he that taketh not his cross, and [FOLLOWETH AFTER ME], is not worthy of me” (Matthew 10:38).

“[NO SERVANT CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS]: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. [YE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON]” (Luke 16:13).

“[SET YOUR AFFECTION ON THINGS ABOVE, NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH]. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:2–3).

“[TAKE HEED, BRETHREN], lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the [DECEITFULNESS OF SIN]. [FOR WE ARE MADE PARTAKERS OF CHRIST, IF WE HOLD THE BEGINNING OF OUR CONFIDENCE STEDFAST UNTO THE END]” (Hebrews 3:12-14).

HEAVEN is HOME FOREVER!

“Jesus Christ the same [YESTERDAY], and [TODAY], and [FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “[NOT EVERY ONE THAT SAITH UNTO ME], Lord, Lord, [SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN]; but [HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN]” (Matthew 7:21).

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; because strait is the gate, and [NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE], and [FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT]” (Matthew 7:13–14).

“For many are called, but [FEW ARE CHOSEN]” (Matthew 22:14).

“[LAY NOT UP FOR YOURSELVES TREASURES UPON EARTH], where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal.

“[FOR WE ARE SAVED BY HOPE: BUT HOPE THAT IS SEEN IS NOT HOPE]: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? [BUT IF WE HOPE FOR THAT WE SEE NOT, THEN DO WE WITH PATIENCE WAIT FOR IT]” (Romans 8:22-25).

“[LOOKING FOR THAT BLESSED HOPE, AND THE GLORIOUS APPEARING OF THE GREAT GOD AND OUR SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST]” (Titus 2:13).

“Henceforth there is laid up for me a [CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS], which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and [NOT TO ME ONLY, BUT UNTO ALL THEM ALSO THAT LOVE HIS APPEARING]” (2 Timothy 4:8).

“For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).

However,our Lord Jesus aks: “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:8).

“NOW FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN” (Hebrews 11:1).

“[NOW THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH]: but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul” (Hebrews 10:38–39).

“The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. Seek the LORD, and ye shall live” (Amos 5:6).

ARE YOU LIVING IN FEAR AND ARE AFRAID TO DIE?

If you hesitated to answer No, then you must come to knowledge of the truth by the word of God.

“[THE RIGHTEOUS PERISHETH], and no man layeth it to heart: [AND MERCIFUL MEN ARE TAKEN AWAY], none considering that [THE RIGHTEOUS IS TAKEN AWAY FROM THE EVIL TO COME]. He shall enter into peace: [THEY SHALL REST IN THEIR BEDS, EACH ONE WALKING IN HIS UPRIGHTNESS]” (Isaiah 57:1-2).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “He that loveth his life shall lose it; and [HE THAT HATETH HIS LIFE IN THIS WORLD SHALL KEEP IT UNTO LIFE ETERNAL].

“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” (Romans 8:18).

“For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. [FOR WHETHER WE LIVE, WE LIVE UNTO THE LORD; AND WHETHER WE DIE, WE DIE UNTO THE LORD]: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living” (Romans 14:7-9).

“[EXAMINE YOURSELVES, WHETHER YE BE IN THE FAITH]; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that [JESUS CHRIST IS IN YOU]?” (2 Corinthians 13:5).

“[FOR YE ARE DEAD, AND YOUR LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD]” (Colossians 3:3).

Our Lord JESUS also says: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, [HE THAT HEARETH MY WORD, AND BELIEVETH ON HIM THAT SENT ME, HATH EVERLASTING LIFE], and [SHALL NOT COME INTO CONDEMNATION; BUT IS PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE]” (John 5:21-24).

JESUS, the only begotten Son of God says: “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

In order to get into the KINGSOM OF HEAVEN, we must REPENT AND BELIEVE the GOSPEL (Mark 1:15).

REDEMPTION TO HEAVEN IS ON THE LAST DAY.

Somewhere in the heavens we know that everlasting light shines, and we look forward to coming the day of our Lord, Savior and King Jesus (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11:18).

“The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness. Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken” (Isaiah 33:5, 20).

Every night we go to bed we are comforted by the words Jesus spoke to his disciples: “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. [I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU]. And if I go and prepare a place for you, [I WILL COME AGAIN, AND RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF; THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO]” (John 14:2-3).

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).

Fight the GOOD Fight of FAITH to lay hold on ETERNAL LIFE (2 Timothy 4:7-8).

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:12-15).

“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:21).
