True Disciples Vs. Imposters & Deceptive Charity
There is a way to tell true disciples who are following Jesus from imposters. Jesus said that the way all will know you are (His) disciples is by if you have love for one another. (Jn 13:35) If we really have love for one another and love for our Father in Heaven, then people will see that loved and they will see the difference between us and the world who doesn’t really care for other people. At best the world has charity and generosity.
When I was in church there was a great number of people who love me in the flesh. They never told me about the truth of Jesus, they never called me to repent of my sins, even when people saw that I was in sin, they didn’t call me to repent. But they did have charity. They did have love for my Earthly needs, that is why people would help me with things like food, you know groceries or gas, helping me with rent or whatever it was. People do have charity, but charity is not what God requires, He requires us to have true love for one another, the sort of love that comes from our Father in heaven.
Remember that the greatest commandment of all is not just charity, but it is to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, all of our soul, all of our mind and all of our strength. And then the second greatest commandment is to love our neighbor as our self. It’s not that charity is bad or evil, but the problem is people hold on to charity to look good, just to do good deeds for others because they love humanity. But if we don’t have the love of our Father in heaven first, then who don’t really have the love of Jesus in us and we’re not true disciples.
True disciples really have love for one another because they know that Jesus loved us first. True love is that Jesus lay down His life for us, and we also ought to lay down or lives for others. We have to have that kind of love that is unconditional, even praying for our enemies and those that persecute us. The way you can tell the difference, whether it is online, or whether you’re in some church somewhere (Not that I’m advocating going to church), wherever you are is, if people really love God with all of their heart, are they loving others as themselves? Are they proving that they are God’s children by their love?
There is a lot of imposters, they have a lot of doctrines, they know the Bible, they can quote everything to you to prove one thing or another, but they don’t have one ounce of love in them. They don’t really care for people’s souls, they don’t really care to win souls into the kingdom of God. They care to politic, they care about money, they care about fame. They care to make everyone think that they are loving and accepting of everyone, but we know that is not true love. Just accepting everything is not true love, even heathens are willing to accept their own.
Worldly people want to see a kind of a peace that is a peace that just accepts all religions. Now I know Baptists and Pentecostal and certain religious sects, they don’t just accept all religions, but they do except everyone within their little religious sect. When I was Baptist, I was well accepted, people loved me for being Baptist (like them) they loved Andy. But when I started hearing from Jesus, they rejected the words of Jesus that He was speaking through me. They wanted the old Andy back. They wanted to love me and to be charitable, but they didn’t want it love the GOD that was working through me.
True love is accepting the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior, accepting Him and ALL of His words all of His teachings, and having His love in you, that you may really love others as yourself.
So don’t get charity mixed up with God’s love and don’t let imposters deceive you, thinking that they are loving when they are just loving their own Ministries their own lives (their own people) their own selves. Don’t be deceived by imposters. The true disciples who are really following Jesus, they love others and the whole world will KNOW by their love! Do we really have the love of Jesus in us, are we loving God with all of our might and are we loving our neighbor as ourselves? Or do we just have “charity” like the heathens also have charity? May the grace of Jesus be with you
