DISCERNING CHRIST REJECTERS by (benaiah juma).
I wanted to talk about this topic because a lot of people in the world say that they have accepted the lord Jesus Christ as their lord and personal savior but they end up in the heart of the earth after they die. Majority of people in the world say that they believe in Christ Jesus and they are His disciples but the word of God is contrary to this saying, because the lord Jesus Christ told us that narrow is the way which leads to life and broad is the way which leads to destruction and many people use that road.This means that a lot of people who claim to be followers of Christ Jesus may be walking unknowingly or knowingly in the broad path of hell and destruction.
Majority of people who claim Jesus Christ in reality may not know Him. Most of the churches today are filled with a lot of people, but most of them they are not true Christians, they are but church attendants. A lukewarm believer is a non believer even though they claim Christ or not. The following are some of the examples and criteria that you can use to discern if a person has really accepted or rejected our lord and saviour Jesus Christ.
How to discern if a person has accepted or rejected Christ?
1. Living a Sinful Unrepentant Life.
A Christ rejector can be known by the way he or she lives his or her life. When a person is living a sinful unrepentant life, it is an indication that the person has rejected Christ. It is common today for people to say that they love and believe in Jesus Christ but if you rebuke their unfruitful works of darkness, they start hating, rejecting, opposing and they dissociate with you. The word of God says if you love me you will keep my commandments, and there is possibly no way you can love and accept the Lord Jesus Christ and at the same time disobey Him and obey the father of lies in the nether parts of the earth. Your actions speak much about you and what you believe. Actions speak louder than words. If faith and works do not agree, then there is a problem with your faith. If you profess to know Jesus Christ, you works should correspond with your faith.
Sin is an offence towards God, and you cannot say that you have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ and do the things which He hates and He calls them abominations. The lord Jesus Christ told us that he that is not with me is against me, if you live a sinful unrepentant life you are not for Christ or a Christian, you go against Christ, you belong to the devil. You cannot have fellowship with Jesus Christ if you are a sinner. Jesus Christ is light and if you walk in the light you will have fellowship with Him. Anyone that claims to accept Jesus Christ and walks in darkness is a liar and the truth is not in him or her.
If you are living a sinful unrepentant life you surely do not know Christ and Christ has not known you yet. You need to come to Him, because Jesus Christ will accept a repentant sinner even though he or she rejected Him in the beginning. Jesus Christ is a stranger to the life of a sinner and also the sinner is a stranger to the eyes of the Lord Jesus Christ. A Christian is a person who follows the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ and if you go against the teachings of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, then you are not a Christian but you go against Christ, you are an AntiChrist.
Mat 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
Jesus Christ will accept a person who comes to Him with a humble and contrite heart even if the person had previously rejected him. The word of God says that if a person does not know Jesus Christ and do the things which are in the word of God, it proves that the laws of God are written in their hearts. When a person lives a sinful life, they are living a life which is contrary to the laws of God which are written in their own hearts which proves they hate and have rejected Christ.
Rom 2:14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Rom 2:15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
This means that every person has God's laws written in their hearts and one way or another every person knows the will of God. The laws of God written in our hearts plus the conviction of the Spirit of God can lead you to the paths of righteousness and purity. You don’t have to listen to the gospel for you to know the truth. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a confirmation to what is already written and known in our hearts. Any person that lives a sinful life has rejected Christ even if they do not claim it verbally. By your fruits we shall know you. Your deeds prove whether you have accepted Christ or rejected him.
The word of God tells us that the lord Jesus Christ came into the world but the world chose darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. That is why they chose Barabbas the murderer and preferred the lord Jesus Christ to be hanged on the cross because the life of Jesus Christ was contradicting how they were living their lives. Any one that does evil hates the just. If you hang out with unbelievers and start rebuking and correcting their unfruitful works of darkness the relationship will break. If a relationship between a believer and an unbeliever can go on for a long time, it is because the believer is not reproving the works of darkness of the unbeliever. Any one that sins is an enemy of righteousness and a person who is living holy life is an enemy of darkness.
Christ is the epitome of righteousness and if you hate righteousness then you reject the epitome of righteousness who is the lord Jesus Christ. Satan is the originator and source of unrighteousness and if you accept unrighteousness, then certainly satan is your father and source.
Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Joh 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
2. Refusing to come to Christ after hearing the gospel of our lord and saviour Jesus Christ.
This can happen when a person is constantly told to give his or her life to the lord Jesus Christ and they reject the Holy Spirit's call for salvation and they keep on postponing their day of salvation. They keep on postponing because they are in love with their sin and they are not ready to give up their sin and live holy lives in Christ Jesus. This is an indication that the person has rejected Christ. You are supposed to give your life immediately you hear the gospel of salvation because living a sinful life without the lord Jesus Christ is playing Russian roulette with your soul.
When you have come to the knowledge of truth and you disobey God's call for salvation and continue performing willful sins then the wrath of God abides on you. Anyone who does not believe that Christ Jesus is the son of God and came out from God is a Christ rejecter. Any religion that does not consider Jesus Christ is the son of God is false and satanic. People should come to Jesus Christ after coming to the knowledge of truth. The truth is Jesus Christ. Those who refuse to come to Jesus Christ after the Holy Spirit's call in their lives to come to Jesus Christ are in danger of committing the unpardonable sin of blaspheming the Holy Ghost.
3. Lacking Gods nature.
Having God's nature is the evidence of accepting the lord Jesus Christ. I firmly believe this is going to be used as the basis of judgment for all humanity. If you love what the lord Jesus Christ hates it proves that you have rejected him. The evidence of accepting Jesus Christ is loving what He loves and hating what He hates.Works is not important, if you do good works and love what the lord Jesus Christ hates then it means God's nature has not been impacted in your life. You need to repent and come to Him with a humble and contrite heart for salvation so that the lord Jesus Christ can impact is His life to you.
Everyone that is living sinful life and does not want to give their life to Jesus and anyone that lacks God’s nature have all rejected Christ. If you are not in Christ you are enemy of God, and God will slaughter those that refuse to accept the lord Jesus Christ with their whole hearts.The scriptures tells us that the only way to receive salvation is to accept the lord Jesus Christ.
1Jn 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
1Jn 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
Accept the lord Jesus Christ with your whole hearts and you shall be saved from the wrath to come. If you accept the lord Jesus Christ with your whole heart and recieve God's nature, you will end up loving what He loves and hate what He hates and this is the evidence of accepting Jesus Christ. We are not justified by works, works is not important, works only proves that you have real grace. When you have God's nature in you, then you are justified as a born again Christian. You are born again meaning you are a new creature in Christ Jesus. Which is evidenced by loving what Jesus Christ loves and hating what He hates.
4. Renouncing Christ verbally.
This is whereby a person says that He or she does not want Jesus Christ in his or her life. This is mostly done by the rich because they think they don't need anything from God because they possess worldly riches and wisdom, meanwhile they don't realize that they are blind, naked and they need help and healing from Jesus Christ. If you reject Christ then there will come a time when Christ will also reject you. If you deny Christ there will come a time when He will also deny you. Jesus Christ told us that whoever confesses Him before men, He will also confess Him before the Father and the holy angels but anyone who denies Him before men, He will also deny Him before the father and the holy angels.
Jesus Christ also told us that whoever is ashamed of Him and His word, He will also be ashamed of Him when He comes back with the glory of the Father and the holy angels. The way we treat God and His servants here on earth, is the same way the Lord Jesus Christ will treat us when we die. Do not be deceived brethren, for whatever a man sows is what He shall also reap. You cannot reject Christ and expect to live with Him for eternity, those that reject Christ will have a home with the devil for all eternity after they die. Every Christ rejector shall have their filth they way they have chosen.
Consequences of Rejecting Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
A person who rejects Christ it shall bring him to the king of terrors. If you reject Christ you belong to the wicked one. If you are a channel of evil here on earth you can definitely rest assured the devil is your father and source of your behavior. Even if you claim that you are a Christian and you live your life to the will of demons you will still wind up in hell.
Job 18:5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.
Job 18:6 The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.
Job 18:7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.
Job 18:8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare.
Job 18:9 The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him.
Job 18:10 The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.
Job 18:11 Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet.
Job 18:12 His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side.
Job 18:13 It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength.
Job 18:14 His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors.
Job 18:15 It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.
Job 18:16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off.
Job 18:17 His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street.
Job 18:18 He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.
Job 18:19 He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.
Job 18:20 They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted.
Job 18:21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.
Here job is describing the habitation of the wicked and a place for him or her that does not know God. Brimstone is scattered all over his habitation and darkness. Job is describing the pit of hell.
The lord Jesus Christ warned us of taking vengeance on those who refuse to accept his work on the cross.
Heb 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
Heb 10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
Heb 10:28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
Heb 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
Heb 10:30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
If you live in sin and you know that Jesus Christ died for your sins, then you despise the work of the cross and spit on the lord Jesus Christ and sign your own death warrant. Every Christ rejector will suffer if they don't repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ. The word of God tells us that those that find Jesus Christ find eternal life and favour of the lord, but those that hate the lord Jesus Christ love death.
Sin proves that you hate and disrespect Jesus Christ because sin offends God, and it is against his laws which He has ordained for mankind. If you take pleasure in sin , you take pleasure in offending God, but if you take pleasure in righteousness, you to take pleasure in pleasing God because He is the author of righteousness. Let everyone accept Jesus Christ for He is our one and only chance to be reconciled to the father. Without Jesus Christ we are all damned. Anyone that has not accepted Jesus Christ, is in imminent danger of damnation. Accept the Lord Jesus Christ and you will spend eternity in heaven. Be blessed.
