Enter Life

Perhaps one of the most important  questions we as  Christians need to ask is —How do we enter eternal life?  Well, the most obvious starting point is to ask  our Lord himself! Let’s inquire from Him.

In (Matt:19;17-21) there came a man to inquire of our Lord just this exact question. He asked ” Good master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have ETERNAL LIFE?” According to many “Christians” today, you would think the Lord had said “Just love me and profess me among men, and you will have eternal life” Afterall that is what I hear constantly among today’s “Christians”. But no! Look at what our Lord SAID. He said “…If you wish to enter into life,KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS ” Look Just how important the Commandments are! LOOK! I feel like I must repeat this a thousand times to some of our “Christian” friends. They simply don’t believe that the Commandments are important. I can only think they are being deceived by the great deceiver. Once the devil can convince them, to quote the beatles “all they need is love”, then they start IGNORING what our Lord said! It is indeed possible to love my fellow man and NOT love God. How? By disobeying His Commandments. What good is it to gain the whole world and ignore God’s word?(prov 14;12) “There is a way which seems right unto man, but it’s end is the way of death”

Then the man was curious and asked ” which?” Meaning he knew Jesus was talking about the holy moral 10 Commandments. Jesus replied ” Thou shall not murder, thou shall not commit adultery, thou shall not bear false witness, honor thy Father and Mother, love they neighbor as thyself” Here it is made clear. The Lord is telling the man (and us) that the Commandments must be kept  to enter eternal life. They are the Commandments of God and even Jesus professed to have kept them. (John 15;10) “If you keep my Commandments, ye shall abide in my love, even as I HAVE KEPT MY FATHERS COMMANDMENTS, and abide in His love”

To summarize, if we wish to enter eternal life let us never forget that His Commandments are to be kept. EACH ONE OF THEM! Not 9 0f 10, like most Christians want to do today.

    That was an awesome study…great insights about how many people today would reply to that question. Great scripture references too…doesn’t get much clearer

    Thanks Todd,
    When we have the truth, we must spread it. Especially to those who really need it, like the people who think they are righteous yet don’t obey God. It is sad indeed! Just maybe God will turn a switch on in them and they will see sripture as it is–Plain and true. I think you understand all this because you are humble of heart. So many out there today are “puffed up” with what they think is the truth(based on today’s popular doctrines). God’s word conforms to their belief, not their belief conforms to God’s word.

    Robert,
    Thanks in no small part to your Spirit-guided influence in my life, I have made a decision to follow our Lord Jesus Christ, forsaking this world and everything in it that is perishing! Praise God! Thank you for letting yourself be used by God. I have begun publishing on Our Sword again and already have plans to spread the truth.
    Your brother in Christ,
    Todd

    p.s. PLEASE keep me in your prayers as i’ve already become a target for the deceiver’s onslaught.

    Awesome Todd! Even if I never again help a person to “come back” to the Lord my Blog has been worth it. Praise God! I just had a feeling after reading you blog awhile ago, your heart was right. And I think you’re right God directed me to find you and encourage you to come back in the fold! Amen. Praise our Lord Jesus for His love. Ps. Now we are “double gunned” for the Lord 🙂
