Last message of the Lord Jesus Christ to the churches



"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

Last message of the Lord Jesus Christ to the churches

Most preachers make statements and claims that contradict the Bible. Some say that Apostle Paul was sent to the gentiles and so if you are not a Jew we must listen to the writings of Paul only, as if there is a difference. Apostle Peter has written about it. "2 Peter 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction." More so, the Lord Jesus Christ came to Apostle John, long after Apostle Paul was martyred, and revealed his messages to the churches, which is the last book of the written word. So, the last message from Jesus Christ to the churches are through apostle John, but not from apostle Paul. However, the Message of Jesus Christ is always the same.

1. Saved by Grace but Only the Humble gets Grace

We are saved by grace from being a sinner. "Ephesians 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, by grace ye are saved." But God gives grace to the humble only, which means that those who are not humble will not receive his grace, which means that they will not be saved. "James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up." That is, proud people will not be saved. "2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin..." If you are proud, why don't you humble yourself? "Matthew 23:12... whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted."  

2. Warning of God to the Churches is to Repent and Overcome

After his resurrection, being God, Jesus Christ has visited his beloved disciple John and gave messages to the churches through him. If we are Christians and if we belong to his church, then these messages are to us also, as a message directly from Jesus Christ. In every message, he says that if you have an ear to hear then you hear. He did not push anybody. Jesus Christ, who is our God, wants us Christians to repent from our sins and to overcome the world and Satan. If we abide in him we can and will overcome both the world and Satan. "Revelation 2:5 Remember ---, and repent, 7 To him that overcometh will I give --- 11 He that overcometh ---. 16  Repent; or else I will ---.  17 To him that overcometh will I give ---. 21 I gave her space to repent 22 except they repent ---. 26 And he that overcometh, --- Revelation 3:3 --- hold fast, and repent.  5 He  that overcometh, 12 Him that overcometh will I make --- 19 be zealous therefore, and repent. 21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, ---. Those who have overcome will receive rewards, even to sit in the very throne of God, the glory of which cannot even enter in the minds of the people. "1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."

3. They that do God's Commandments enter Heaven

The Lord Jesus Christ came from heaven to his disciple John to send important messages to his churches. It is the book of Revelation. As he concludes the book, he wrote who will enter into everlasting life and who will not, and he signed his name before and after the statement. So, this must be very important to the Lord Jesus Christ and to his true people, the Church. Here are the verses: "Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star." The message of the Lord is simple. Those who obey him will have eternal life and enter heaven and the rest of the people will not enter heaven. But the preachers tell stories and twist the gospel. Preachers do not want us to obey what Jesus Christ tells us, but they wants us to give them money, our tithes, our praises, more of our benefits, etc,.

4. We will be Raised if the Holy Ghost Abides in Us

God, who created all things lives in the glorious heaven.  God created people in order to have Children of his own.  He gives commandments to the people, chooses the obedient, and grants them Holy Spirit to abide. This abiding guides them to live a holy life and protects them from the wiles of the devil. On those who follow the guidance of the holy spirit and obey God, the Holy Ghost, the Father and the Son, all will abide in them. Then, God will raise raise them from the earthly, changes their countenance to reflect the glory of Jesus and declares them as sons of God so that they may live with him as his children in heaven as joint heirs with Jesus Christ. "James 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth ---. Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.  Revelation 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne." Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you." It is because of the abiding of God, these people will live holy victorious life. As the reward, they will live eternally with God having the glory of God, as his Children.  

5. All who have no Spot, Wrinkle, & Blemish will be Caught Up

Preachers, pastors, and all evangelicals believe in the rapture of the Church. They think that every Christian will be caught up to heaven to be with Jesus Christ on that day. Some Christians do not believe in any of this. However, Jesus will appear for those who keep themselves pure. "1 John 3:2 ... but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure." In order to keep ourselves holy, we need the abiding of the Holy Ghost, which is the requirement for our rapture. "Romans 8:11 -- if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you." The Lord Jesus Christ makes his bride pure and holy without spot, wrinkle, or blemish. Those who are not holy are not sanctified to be the bride of the Lord Jesus Christ. "Ephesians 5:25 ...Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish." If the Holy Ghost abides in you, he will lead you to the abiding of the Father and the Son. "1 John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming." If we are looking forward to the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ then we will abide in God so that we may keep ourselves holy. If we do not have this abiding in us then we will be ashamed at his coming.
