Religion verse Jesus Christ

You need Jesus not church, bible study, or so called Christian fellowship
I am here to testify about the TRUE GOD. You do NOT need a church, you don’t need religion and you don’t need a bible. The TRUE GOD wants a relationship with you personally and He will speak directly to YOU if you are serious about talking with Him. I encourage you to GO AND PRAY and do whatever it takes to start a relationship with the LIVING GOD. The TRUE GOD is apart from religion and church. He can speak to people APART from these things. He loves His creation and no matter where His creation is, EVEN IF THEY ARE APART FROM A PRINTING PRESS He will speak to His creation. He loves people and He wishes that people have a personal relationship with HIM. I encourage you to go seek the Lord Jesus through prayer and fasting. Get to know Him genuinely. You don’ have to go to church. You don’t have to be a part of anyone’s religion. And you also don’t have to read the Bible. GOD is OUTSIDE of church and He is outside of religion and HE IS OUTSIDE OF THE BIBLE. Even people who have NEVER read about Jesus in the Bible meet Him. It is MORE likely that someone who has NO knowledge of God through the Bible find Him, than a scholar who has studied the Bible from when they are young. The Religions of this world ALL have a bible and, and their bible’s brainwash them. They start to think that they only hear from the god’s through a book. But the TRUE GOD wants a genuine relationship WITH YOU. He is OUTSIDE THE BIBLE. He is NOT stuck inside a Bible. You do NOT hear from GOD through a Bible. HE SPEAKS, HE HAS HIS OWN VOICE HE IS A LIVING SPIRIT! And if you want to get to know Him you have to start praying to Him and SEEKING HIM. You are NOT going to find Him in church whether you’re Catholic, Christian or some other religion. You are NOT going to find Him by JUST reading the Bible. You find Him through PRAYER when you start talking with Him and asking Him who He is and when you genuinely start seeking. THAT starts your relationship with the TRUE GOD, APART FROM DEAD RELIGION, apart from the churches that don’t really know God and all the people who read the Bible who say; “Get into our Bible study, read the Bible with us…” You will NEVER find Him that way either… I was a pastor for 7 years and I read the Bible more than anyone I knew, and I didn’t find Jesus Christ until I started diligently seeking Him through PRAYER! I’m here to testify that THERE IS A TRUE GOD THAT LOVES YOU APART FROM RELIGION THE CHURCH AND THE BIBLE. Get into a REAL relationship with Jesus through PRAYER, through genuine prayer, START SEEKING HIM!

Eliminate Religion What Relationship is Left? Many Christians talk about how being a Christian means being in a relationship with Jesus, not religion. But the same Christians live out their Christian by dead religion and NOT a relationship with Jesus. My question is, what would be left if all the elements of dead religion were taken away, and you simply were just left with Jesus. Imagine you were shipwrecked somewhere and there was no longer a church building, no longer a pastor, no longer a bible, no longer ANY of those things that constitute the religions order of today. Imagine ALL those things were gone, WHAT WOULD BE LEFT? What would be left is whatever you have built on the rock. THAT is the relationship with Jesus. The TRUE CHURCH does NOT need a building because we are the temple of the Lord. The true church does NOT need a pastor because Jesus is our Good Shepherd! The true church does NOT need a “worship arts leader” playing guitar up on stage because true worship is the transformation of the mind and the heart, and it happens by the power of the Holy Spirit not a man on the stage. The true church does not even need the guidance of the Bible, because Jesus promised the HOLY SPIRIT to lead the men and the women of God, He did NOT promise the Bible. The true church follows Jesus and they have a relationship with Jesus APART FROM DEAD RELIGION. So ask yourself the serious question: WHAT WOULD BE LEFT OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS IF YOU ELIMINATED DEAD RELIGION AND ALL OF ITS PRACTICES?

Real Religion Must Watch Out for THIS The word religion often has a negative connotation to me because it has to do with dead religion. However, I want to read to you what James says about true religion in James chapter 1. I’m going to start in verse 26. “If anyone among you thinks he is religions, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” Many Churches and organizations of today have programs where they DO take care of orphans and widows, homeless people and people in need. There is nothing wrong with these programs and in fact they are wonderful and it is blessing to those people who are in need. There is nothing wrong with these programs, but there is a problem with sin and hypocrisy. I want to read to you what Jesus said to His disciples in Luke chapter 12. “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.” Most of the pastors in the church are modern day Pharisees and hypocrites. We need to beware of the leaven of hypocrisy because MOST of the church is polluted with hypocrisy even though they do wonderful things for the homeless, the orphans and the widows. We should not critique the programs where they help people out, but Jesus DOES caution us to beware of leaven of the pastors, of the teachers, of the modern day Pharisees. Make sure that you have your eyes on Jesus and keep the leaven of hypocrisy out of your life and out of your family’s life.

The Narrow Gate is JESUS not Religion
I want to read to you what Jesus said in Matthew Chapter 7 verse 13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide the gate and broad the way that leads to destruction and there are MANY who go in by it. Because narrow the gate and difficult the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Religion is VERY broad and there are MANY people who find religion and who find church. There are MANY people who read the Bible. There are MANY Christians. MANY Catholics. MANY protestants. MANY Muslims. MANY Hindus…. THIS IS NOT THE NARROW GATE; RELIGION IS NOT THE NARROW GATE. The narrow gate is extremely narrow and VERY FEW people find it and it is VERY DIFFICULT when you DO find it to stay with it. The narrow gate is JESUS HIMSELF. And those who go in by JESUS are those endure with HIM TO THE VERY END. I encourage you to FIND JESUS. Seek Him with all of your might because the TRUE GOD is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Should You Respect All Religions?
It is good and wonderful to respect ALL people and to genuinely care for them, but it is NOT good to respect others religion. If you know JESUS you KNOW He is the ONLY WAY He is the ONLY TRUTH, and if you start pretending to admire other people’s religion you will start to turn your back on God. Jesus Christ is the TRUE GOD, He loves ALL people and He is calling ALL the religions of the world to repent, to fall to their knees and to worship HIM before they perish. Stand in the truth with JESUS and don’t be like the people of this world who are respecters of lies and falsehoods. Rather take a stand for Jesus, love people, but love them by TELLING AND SHOWING THEM THE TRUTH OF GOD.

Do Mormons Catholics and Other Religions Enter Heaven?
It is impossible for anyone to inherit eternal life without the approval of JESUS. How you get the approval is asking HIM what you need to do. You go on your knees in prayer and you ask HIM to reveal Himself. JESUS is the True Living GOD and He manifests to those who love HIM! He is ALIVE and will speak to you if you cry out to HIM. The true GOD He SPEAKS TO PEOPLE! And those who want to know Truth and hear Truth, they listen and they hear HIM. But without knowing Jesus and without Him approving of you, when you stand before GOD you by NO means will enter into eternal life. Are you really in a right relationship with Jesus? And can you say today beyond a shadow of a doubt that He is pleased with your life? May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Most Cling to Rituals Tradition Religion but Reject JESUS
Most people today are just trying to keep rituals, traditions, religion, things like that, and they are VERY tied to those things because of all the alliances the WORLD has with those things. You know that if you stop keeping the traditions of men the devil is going to attack you. Your family may disown you and all your friends may call you a heretic. If TRULY you choose to stop keeping these rituals and these religious practices, you are going to be so different from the world that the WORLD is going to call you CRAZY! But that is exactly what Jesus said would happen. Jesus said that the world would HATE us if we were HIS disciples. So are you truly following Jesus? OR have you become part of the Babylon and Laodicean church? The church of Laodicea is the church of TODAY. They think they have so many things. They think they have so many rituals, they think they have gold. They think they have all these precious things, but Jesus says they are blind, poor, naked, miserable, wretched, and if they desire to have LIFE, they need to come to HIM knowing they are NAKED and buy from Him REAL clothes. So are you part of the world's traditions? Are you keeping useless traditions and rituals and religious practices? Or are you TRULY being led by the Holy Spirit? May the grace of Jesus be with you.
