Saved or Self-deceived

God replaced Saul with David as the King of Israel because God said, “I have found David, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will."

The Lord said in Matthew 7:21-23, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

There are two kinds of sin before God: the sin of rebellion in disobeying what God has commanded us to do; the other is doing what God has not commanded at all.

A man of God wrote:- “The safest place in spiritual warfare is obedience. In the center of His will, we face only the situations we are equipped to win. Outside of the center is where many Christians fall, facing undue pressures that are self-inflicted. His will is the only safe place to be.”

Through the link is a sermon from John MacArthur on ‘Saved or Self-deceived’ which is an excellent message and the truth we all need to hear.

John MacArthur is an an excellent preacher of the Word and his messages of truth are very effective to touch and transform lives if he has encountered God the Consuming Fire, to know Him in a deeper way. Acts 4:13 described this of the priests, elders and teachers of the Law, “When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.”

Watchman Nee wrote:- “At Christ's birth, those who sought Him earnestly (the Magi) had little knowledge of the Scriptures; whereas those having great knowledge of the Scriptures (the Teachers of the Law and Chief Priests) did not seek Him. By this we can see that having scriptural knowledge does not necessary mean one knows God.

May you be blessed and God be glorified through this sharing!
