LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN TEST - EXAMINE YOURSELF

Lukewarm "Christian" Test

 10 Question Test - "Examine Yourself" with God's Word - 2 Corinthians 13:5

Lukewarm "Christian" Test - Lukewarm professing "Christians" are UNSAVED people who THINK they're Saved

BY MARTHA MAC SO4J.com ®  / SO4J-TV

LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN TEST is a 10 Question Test to help you to: "Examine Yourself" (2 Corinthians 13:5) with God's Word, to see if you are a Lukewarm self-deceived so-called "Christian" (Apostate) OR a true Christian. What is a Lukewarm Christian? LUKEWARM CHRISTIANS are FALSE CONVERTS— they are UNSAVED People who: THINK, TALK, LOOK like they are Saved (Revelation 3:14-22, Matthew 7:21-23)— which is DIFFERENT than a: DISOBEDIENT Christian/Believer like King David and/or Peter was at one time (1 Thess 5:14, Psalms 51).

  • 2 Corinthians 13:5 "EXAMINE YOURSELF to see if your Faith is Genuine. TEST YOURSELF. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you; if not, you have Failed the Test of Genuine Faith."

  • 1 Corinthians 11:31-32 "If we would EXAMINE OURSELVES, we would Not be JUDGED BY GOD in this way. Yet when we are JUDGED BY THE LORD, we are being DISCIPLINED so that we will NOT BE CONDEMNED ALONG WITH THE WORLD."

  • LUKEWARM "CHRISTIAN" VERSE: Revelation 3:14-22 (NASB) JESUS says, ““To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this: ‘I know your DEEDS, that you are neither COLD nor HOT; I WISH that you were COLD or HOT. ‘So because you are LUKEWARM (i.e. BAD WATER), and neither HOT nor COLD (i.e. GOOD WATER), I WILL SPIT YOU OUT OF MY MOUTH (i.e. Perish in Hell). ‘Because you say, “I am RICH, and have become WEALTHY, and have NEED of NOTHING,” and you do NOT KNOW that you are WRETCHED and MISERABLE and POOR and BLIND and NAKED, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may BECOME RICH, and WHITE GARMENTS (i.e. the Robe of His Righteousness Isaiah 61:10, Rev 21:2) so that you may CLOTHE YOURSELF, and that the SHAME of your NAKEDNESS will not be revealed (Matthew 22:11-14); and eye salve to anoint your EYES so that you may SEE. ‘Those whom I LOVE I REPROVE and DISCIPLINEtherefore be ZEALOUS and REPENT. ‘Behold, I stand at the DOOR and KNOCK; if anyone hears MY VOICE and OPENS the DOOR, I will COME IN to him and will DINE with him, and he with Me. ‘He who OVERCOMES, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. ‘He who has an EAR, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the churches.’ ”

  • Matthew 7:21-23 (NASB) JESUS says, "Not everyone who says to ME, 'LORD, LORD,' will enter the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, but he who does the WILL of MY FATHER who is in HEAVEN will enter. "MANY will say to ME on that DAY, 'LORD, LORD, did we not PROPHESY in YOUR NAME, and in YOUR NAME CAST OUT DEMONS, and in YOUR NAME PERFORM MANY MIRACLES?' "And then I will declare to them, 'I NEVER KNEW you; DEPART from ME, you who PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.”

INTRO TO THE LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN TEST: Please Note that SO4J-TV understands GRACE. We understand that Christians are not perfect— they still Sin once in a while (so to speak)— 1 John 2:1. This below TEST is NOT about being Legalistic. As we shared above: "We're Not Saved by Works (Legalism), but our FAITH is PROVEN (show evidence, FRUIT) that we are SAVED by our WORKS (James 2:14-20, Matt 3:8). If there is No Obedience to Gods Word (1 John 2:3-6), out of a Love for Jesus (John 14:15, 21,23), and one Continues IN Sin (1 John 3:8-10) then we'll have to Face the Terrifying Consequences of Heb 10:26-31 which Jesus Warns us about in Matt 7:21-23 where MANY UNSAVED People who THOUGHT they were Saved will spend Eternity in Hell. Once again, this is called APOSTASY— which is a REJECTION or DESERTION from FAITH in JESUS & GOD'S WORD. Where people HEAR & RESPOND to the Gospel by making a "DECISION FOR CHRIST" or "PROFESSION OF FAITH" (like JUDAS - John 12:6). False Converts come to the EDGE of Saving Faith— but they eventually REJECT or WALK AWAY from the Truth when Tested with the CARES & LURES of this Life, PROBLEMS (Matt 13:19,21,22) etc. A False Convert named Demas in the New Testament is a Good Example of that. Demas made a "DECISION FOR CHRIST" became a Fellow Laborer with the Apostle Paul, Mark, and Luke in Philemon 1:23-24 — but when Tested with the "Cares of this Life" Demas did not Endure (Matt 10:22) in God’s Word— Read 2 Tim 4:10. Jesus warns us over and over again about True & False Conversion i.e. the PARABLE OF THE SOWER: Matt 13:3-23, Mark 4:3-20, Luke 8:5-15. Jesus warns too that "MANY" people will PERISH, and FEW (Percentage wise) Truly become Born Again— Matt 7:13-14, Matt 7:21-23, Luke 13:23-30, Matt 22:14, Phil 3:18-19. God's Word says that we can know we have Eternal Life (1 John 5:13) if we Keep His Commandments (1 John 2:3-6, John 14:15, 21,23, John 8:31). In 2 Cor 13:5 & 1 Cor 11:31-32 it says to EXAMINE OURSELVES— TEST OURSELVES with God's Word and make sure we're Biblically Saved. That is what this Lukewarm Christian Test seeks to do. SO4J-TV is reaching out to those people who Call themselves Christians— yet use the Grace of God as a License to Sin (Rom 6:1-23). We are concerned that there are MANY so called "Christians" (Matt 7:21-22, 23) who are NOT ready to face Jesus on Judgment Day (Heb 9:27). We are aware of the imperfections of this Test. This is simply a Tool to help us to Examine Our Faith with God's Word (2 Cor 13:5), and make sure that we are Biblically Saved, & Ready to Face Jesus on Judgment Day (2 Cor 5:10).

1 - Do Cares & Worries of This Life Dominate Most of Your Thoughts & Conversations?

Do Cares & Worries of This Life Dominate Most of Your Thoughts & Conversations? SO4J-TV - SO4J.com

Do you THINK & TALK MORE about this life THAN Jesus? Are the News Events of the Day, and the Daily Cares of this Life MORE Important than Jesus and God's Word? (Matt 10:37-39, Mark 12:30-31) Do you Cast Down THOUGHTS & IMAGINATIONS that are CONTRARY to God's Word?

  • Matthew 6:31-32 Jesus says,"So don’t WORRY about these things, saying, ‘What will we EAT? What will we DRINK? What will we WEAR?’ THESE THINGS DOMINATE THE THOUGHTS OF UNBELIEVERS, but your Heavenly Father already knows ALL your Needs."

  • Philippians 3:18-19 "I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are MANY whose Conduct shows they are really Enemies of the Cross of Christ. They are headed for destruction. Their god is their Appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they THINK ONLY ABOUT THIS LIFE HERE ON EARTH."
  • 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 "For though we Walk in the Flesh, we do Not War according to the Flesh: For the Weapons of our Warfare are NOT Carnal (Worldly), but Mighty through God to the Pulling down of Strongholds; CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, and EVERY HIGH THING that EXALTS ITSELF against the Knowledge of God, and bringing into CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT to the Obedience of Christ."

2 - Do You Practice Sin on a Regular Basis?

Do You Practice Sin on a Regular Basis? SO4J-TV - SO4J.com

Do you call yourself a Christian, but fail to overcome Temptations to Sin on a Regular Basis?

  • Hebrews 10:26-39 "If we DELIBERATELY CONTINUE SINNING AFTER we have received KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH, there is NO longer any sacrifice that will cover THESE SINS. There is only the TERRIBLE EXPECTATION OF GOD'S JUDGMENT AND THE RAGING FIRE that will consume his enemies." MORE

  • 1 John 3:8-10 "Those who have been Born into God’s family (Born Again) do NOT MAKE A PRACTICE OF SINNING, because God’s life is in them. So they CAN'T KEEP ON SINNING, because they are Children of God. So now we can tell who are Children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does Not live Righteously and does Not Love other Believers does Not belong to God."

Do You Commit Any Of These Type of Sins on a CONTINUAL Basis:

A - SEXUAL SINS & GREED: Sex before Marriage, Looking at someone to Lust after them, Masturbation, Lustful Thoughts & Fantasizing, Looking at Pornography— these are All works of the Flesh. Are you Greedy— do you talk More about Money & Success than you talk about Jesus?

  • 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 "Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will NOT inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t FOOL yourselves. Those who indulge in SEXUAL SIN, or who Worship Idols, or Commit ADULTERY, or are MALE PROSTITUTES, or PRACTICE HOMOSEXUALITY, or are Thieves, or Greedy People, or Drunkards, or are Abusive, or Cheat PeopleNONE OF THESE will inherit the Kingdom of God."
  • Ephesians 5:3-6 "Let there be NO SEXUAL IMMORALITY, IMPURITY, OR GREED among you. SUCH SINS have NO place among God’s people. OBSCENE STORIES, FOOLISH TALK, and COARSE JOKES—these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God. You can be sure that NOIMMORAL, IMPURE, OR GREEDY PERSON will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a GREEDY PERSON is an IDOLATER,WORSHIPPING THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD. Don’t be fooled by those who try to EXCUSE THESE SINS, for the WRATH OF GOD will fall on all who DISOBEY HIM."

IMPORTANT NOTE: In America, Christians don't necessarily Suffer as Believers do in other Countries. However, when we decide to Stop Sinning is when we begin to Share in the Sufferings of Christwhich makes us Partners with Christ-1 Pet 4:13, Luke 9:23-26

  • 1 Peter 4:1 "So then, since Christ SUFFERED Physical Pain, you must arm yourselves with the SAME ATTITUDE He had, and be ready to SUFFER, too. For if you are willing to SUFFER FOR CHRIST, you have decided to STOP SINNING."

B - STRIFE, JEALOUSY, ANGER: Are you in Strife on a continual basis? Do you Get Offended Easily, are you consistently a Jealousy or Envious Person? Do you continually Quarrel & have Outbursts of Anger towards: Spouse, Family Members—anyone. Do you get Drunk, and/or hang out at: Bars & Clubs, attend Worldly Parties...etc.?

  • Galatians 5:19-21 When you follow the desires of your SINFUL NATURE, the results are very clear: SEXUAL IMMORALITY, IMPURITY, LUSTFUL PLEASURES, Idolatry, Sorcery, HOSTILITY, QUARRELING, JEALOUSY, OUTBURSTS OF ANGER, SELFISH AMBITION, DISSENSION, DIVISION, ENVY, DRUNKENNESS, WILD PARTIES, and other SINS LIKE THESE. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will NOT inherit the Kingdom of God.

C - STEALING & LYING: Do you Steal anything from Work— items that your Company would consider Stealing? Remember, Thieves will NOT inherit the Kingdom of God. Do you tell Lies? Do you tell those "White" Lies on a consistent basis that get you out of trouble, etc?

  • Luke 16:10-13 Jesus says, “If you are DISHONEST (cheat, steal, lie) in LITTLE THINGS, you WON'T be HONEST with greater responsibilities. And if you are UNTRUSTWORTHY about WORLDLY WEALTH, who will trust you with the TRUE RICHES OF HEAVEN?"

  • John 12:6 "Not that he (Judas) cared for the poor (he Professed that he did)—he was a THIEF, and since he was in charge of the Disciples’ Money, he OFTEN STOLE (practiced sin) some for himself."

  • Proverb 12:22 "LYING LIPS are an ABOMINATION to the Lord"

Don't minimize Sin, God is HOLY, and He Has a Holy Hatred for Sin

  • 1 Peter 1:14-17, Galatians 5:15-26, 1 John 2:15-17, 1 John 3:6-10,1 John 5:18, 1 Cor 6:9-10, Matt 13:36-40. See a List of 667 Sins

I will NOT TOLERATE PEOPLE WHO SLANDER THEIR NEIGHBORS. I will NOT ENDURE CONCEIT AND PRIDE. I will SEARCH FOR FAITHFULPEOPLE TO BE MY COMPANIONS. Only those who are ABOVE REPROACH WILL BE ALLOWED TO SERVE ME. I will NOT ALLOW DECEIVERS TO SERVE IN MY HOUSE, and LIARS WILL NOT STAY IN MY PRESENCE. My daily task will be to ferret out the WICKED AND FREE THE CITY OF THE LORD FROM THEIR GRIP."

6 - Do You Fail to Pray Earnestly & Pray for the Lost Who Will Spend Eternity in Hell?

Do You Fail to Pray Earnestly & Pray for the Lost Who Will Spend Eternity in Hell? - SO4J-TV - SO4J.com

Do you Fail to CARE— and to PRAY & PLEAD God's Mercy on the Lost? Do you Disobey God's Word and are PRAYERLESS? Jesus told His Disciples that we should ALWAYS PRAY & NOT GIVE UP. Jesus was our Great Example on PRAYER. Before Jesus made any BIG DECISONSHE PRAYED. Before Jesus PREACHED— HE PRAYED. When Jesus was going thru TRIALS & TESTINGS HE PRAYED (not just for His Needs but for others as well). Do you Disobey God's Word and are Prayerless? This should help bring to our attention the Words of Jesus regarding the Need for Constant Prayer. John 15:5 Jesus says, "Apart from Me you can do NOTHING."

  • 1 Timothy 2:1-4 "I URGE you, FIRST OF ALL, to PRAY FOR ALL PEOPLE. As you make your Requests, PLEAD FOR GOD'S MERCY UPON THEM, and GIVE THANKS. PRAY this way for KINGS and ALL OTHERS WHO ARE IN AUTHORITY, so that we can live in peace and quietness, in godliness and dignity. This is GOOD and PLEASES GOD OUR SAVIOR, for He wants EVERYONE to be Saved and to UNDERSTAND THE TRUTH."

  • Luke 18:1 "Jesus told His Disciples a Parable to show them that they should ALWAYS PRAY & NOT GIVE UP."

  • Mark 1:35-39 "BEFORE DAYBREAK the next Morning, JESUS GOT UP and went out to an ISOLATED PLACE to PRAY. Later Simon and the others went out to find Him. When they found him, they said, “Everyone is looking for you.” But Jesus replied, “We must go on to other towns as well, and I will PREACH TO THEM, TOO. THAT IS WHY I CAME.” So He traveled throughout the region of Galilee, PREACHING IN THE SYNAGOGUES.."

  • Luke 6:12-13 "Jesus went up on a Mountain to PRAY, and He PRAYED to GOD ALL NIGHT. At DAYBREAK He called together all of HIS DISCIPLES and CHOSE Twelve of them to be Apostles."

  • Luke 22:31-32 Jesus says, “Simon, Simon, SATAN has asked to SIFT each of you like Wheat. But I have PLEADED in PRAYER for you, Simon, that YOUR FAITH SHOULD NOT FAIL. So when you have Repented and Turned to Me again, Strengthen your Brothers.”

  • Luke 22:39-46 Jesus left the upstairs room (with Disciples) and WENT AS USUAL TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES. There He told them, “PRAY that you will NOT GIVE IN TO TEMPTATION.” He walked away, about a stone’s throw, and KNELT DOWN and PRAYED, “Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from Me. Yet I want YOUR WILL TO BE DONE, NOT MINE.” Then an Angel from Heaven Appeared and Strengthened Him. He PRAYED MORE FERVENTLY, and He was in SUCH AGONY OF SPIRIT that His SWEAT FELL to the ground like GREAT DROPS OF BLOOD. At last He stood up again and Returned to the Disciples, only to find them ASLEEP, EXHAUSTED FROM GRIEF. “WHY ARE YOU SLEEPING?” Jesuse asked them. “GET UP and PRAY, so that you will NOT GIVE IN TO TEMPTATION.”

  • Luke 10:2 Jesus says, "The Harvest truly isGREAT, but the LABORERS are FEW; therefore PRAY the Lord of the Harvest to send out LABORERS into His Harvest."

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:17 "PRAY without CEASING"

  • Ephesians 6:18-20 "PRAY AT ALL TIMES ON EVERY OCCASSION IN THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. Stay Alert and be PERSISTANCE in your PRAYERS FOR ALL CHRISTIANS EVERYWHERE. And PRAY for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words as I BOLDLY explain God's secret plan that the GOOD NEWS (GOSPEL) is for the Gentiles, too. I am in chains now for PREACHING this (GOSPEL) Message as God's ambassador. But PRAY that I will keep on speaking BOLDLY for him, as I should."

  • Romans 1:9 "God knows how often I PRAY for you. DAY AND NIGHT I bring you and your needs in PRAYER to God, whom I serve with ALL my heart by spreading the GOOD NEWS (GOSPEL) about his Son."

  • 1 Thessalonians 3:10 "NIGHT and DAY we PRAY EARNESTLY for you, asking God to let us see you again to fill the gaps in your Faith."

7 - Do You Fail to Preach the Gospel on a Regular Basis? OR Do You Hinder Others?

Do You Fail to Preach the Gospel or Hinder others from preaching? - SO4J-TV - SO4J.com

Jesus, John the Baptist, Peter, Paul, Noah, Jonah, Jeremiah—all Obeyed God's Command for Believers to Warn the World of God's Coming Judgment.

Jesus gave Believer's the GREAT COMMISSION to Go into ALL the World to Preach the Gospel (Mark 16:15), as He is using the Foolishness of Preaching to Save people (1 Cor 1:18-31). Do you Fail to Obey God's Great Commission to Go into All the World & Preach this Good News?

  • Mark 16:15 Jesus told His Disciples, "Go into ALL the World and PREACH THE GOSPEL to ALL CREATION."
  • Acts 10:42; Mark 16:15; 2 Pet 2:5; Luke 19:10; Luke 13:3-5; Matt 3:1-12; 2 Kings 17:13-23 NKJV

Are You Lazy? Be careful In Matt 25:14-30 Jesus calls the Servant who did NOT Serve "WICKED & LAZY". More Here on Rewards in Heaven

Do you say you "Love the Lord"— but are Embarrassed, or Ashamed to Share & Preach HIS MESSAGE to the World? Do you Opt Out of Warning others & giving the True Terms of the Gospel (Luke 9:23-26, Matt 10:32-39) for a Warm & Fuzzy Gospel that Appears to get big Results, but in the end only promotes being a False Convert? (Matt 7:21-23)
Are you Lazy?

  • Luke 9:26 Jesus says, "For whoever is ASHAMED OF MEand MY WORDS, of him the Son of Man will be ASHAMED when He comes in His own Glory, and in His Father's, and of the Holy Angels."
  • Mark 8:38 Jesus says,"For whoever is ASHAMED OF MEand MY WORDS in this Adulterous and Sinful Generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ASHAMED when He comes in the Glory of His Father with the Holy Angels."
  • Matthew 7:24-27 Jesus says, “Anyone who HEARS MY TEACHING and IGNORES IT IS FOOLISH, like a person who Builds a House on Sand. When the Rains and Floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a Mighty Crash.”

Do you Realize that God uses the Believer to Preach God's Word & Snatch people from the Flames of Hell? Few (percentage wise) truly Labor & Obey the Great Commission.

  • Ezekiel 3:17-19 “I have Appointed you as a WATCHMAN...Whenever you receive a Message from ME,WARN the people IMMEDIATELY...if you FAIL to DELIVER the WARNING, they will DIE in their SINS.

  • Luke 10:2 Jesus says, "The Harvest truly isGREAT, but the LABORERS are FEW; therefore PRAY the Lord of the harvest to send out LABORERS into His Harvest."

Do you RESIST & HINDER TRUE BELIEVERS FROM SHARING GOD'S WORD with others that could save these people from Hell, which is an Eternal Lake of burning Sulfur and Fire? Jude 1:23; Rev 21:7-8; Rev 20:11-15

  • 1 Thessalonians 2:16 "They try to keep us from PREACHING THE GOOD NEWS OF SALVATION to the Gentiles. By doing this, they continue to PILE UP THEIR SINS. But the Anger of God has caught up with them at last."

Do you give these True Believers, who are being Obedient to Jesus to Share their Faith with the Lost, disapproving looks?

Do you tell them to put their Gospel Tracts away, and quit talking so much about Jesus?

Do you talk negatively about them behind there back in regards to their Sharing Jesus?

Are you Silent when others speak Negatively about them?

Do you NOT Defend them & the Truth?

8 - Are You Indifferent About Your Sin? What is Your Attitude?

Are You Indifferent About Your Sin? What is Your Attitude? - SO4J-TV - SO4J.com

A True Christian has a "Beatitude Attitude" Found In - Matt 5:1-12

Do you fail to MOURN over your Sin, and/or you just don't Care? Luke 18:8-14

Both Peter & Judas (in the New Testament) Betrayed Jesus Christ. Peter had Biblical Repentance (Matt 26:31-75)— Judas had mere Worldly Sorrow & Remorse. (Matt 26:14-16; Matt 27:3-5). Judas had been Practicing Sin (John 12:6), Peter stumbled into Sin. When King David sinned against the Lord he

cried out to God for Mercy - Psalms 51. What is your Attitude about your Sin?

  • 2 Corinthians 7:9-11 “PAIN caused you to REPENT and CHANGE your ways. It was the KIND OF SORROW GOD WANTS HIS PEOPLE TO HAVE, so you were not harmed by us in any way. For the kind of SORROW God wants us to Experience LEADS us AWAY from SIN and RESULTS in SALVATION. There’s NO REGRET for that KIND OF SORROW. But WORLDLY SORROW, which LACKS REPENTANCE, results in SPIRITUAL DEATH.”

Do you feel as if you will Not have a Consequence for Sinning & Breaking any of God's Commandments? (Prov 14:12) That's what Adam & Eve thought.

  • Revelatian 3:15-20 Jesus says, “I CORRECT and DISCIPLINE EVERYONE I LOVE. So be DILIGENT and TURN from your INDIFFERENCE."

  • Luke 18:8-14 "Then Jesus told this story to some who had GREAT CONFIDENCE in their OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS and SCORNED EVERYONE ELSE: “TWO MEN went to the Temple to PRAY. One was a PHARISEE, and the other was a DESPISED TAX COLLECTOR. The PHARISEE stood by himself and PRAYED THIS PRAYER: ‘I Thank You, God, that I am NOT A SINNER LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. For I DON’T CHEAT, I DON’T SIN, & I DON’T COMMIT ADULTERY. I’m certainly NOT like that TAX COLLECTOR! I FAST TWICE A WEEK, and I GIVE YOU A TENTH OF MY INCOME.’ “But the TAX COLLECTOR STOOD AT A DISTANCE and dared NOT EVEN LIFT HIS EYES TO HEAVEN as he PRAYED. Instead, he BEAT HIS CHEST IN SORROW, saying, ‘O GOD, BE MERCIFUL TO ME, for I AM A SINNER.’ I tell you, this SINNER, NOT the PHARISEE, returned home JUSTIFIED BEFORE GOD. For those who EXALT THEMSELVES will be HUMBLED, and those who HUMBLE themselves will be EXALTED.”
  • Matt 7:21-23, 1 John 5:2-4, Matt 5:19, 1 John 2:3-6, Josh 1:8

  • 1 John 2:15-17 "Do NOT LOVE THIS WORLD NOR THE THINGS IT OFFERS YOU, for when you love the world, you do NOT have the love of the Father in you. For the WORLD OFFERS ONLY A CRAVING FOR PHYSICAL PLEASURE, a CRAVING for EVERYTHING we SEE, and PRIDE IN OUR ACHIEVEMENTS AND POSSESSIONS. These are NOT from the Father, but are from this WORLD. And this WORLD IS FADING AWAY, along with everything that people CRAVE. But anyone who does what PLEASES GOD will live FOREVER."

  • Luke 16:15 Jesus says, "You like to look good in public, but God knows your evil hearts. What this WORLD HONORS IS AN ABOMINATION in the sight of God.”

  • Matthew 6:33 Jesus says, "But SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, and all these things shall be added to you."
  • Matt 6:19-21, Matt 6:33, 2 Tim 3:2, 1 Tim 6:5-11, Matt 6:25-34, Heb 13:5, Ex 20:17

Do You Fail to Obey Jesus, and God's Word Consistently? - SO4J-TV - SO4J.com

  • 1 John 2:3-6 "We can be sure that we belong to Him IF we OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS. If someone claims, 'I know God,' but DOESN'T OBEY GOD'S COMMANDMENTS, that person is a LIAR and is NOT living in the Truth. But those who OBEY GOD'S WORD REALLY DO LOVE HIM. That's the way to know whether or not we live in Him. Those who SAY they LIVE IN GOD should live their lives as CHRIST DID."
  • John 14:15 Jesus says, “If you love Me, OBEY MY COMMANDMENTS."
  • John 14:21 Jesus says, "Those who accept My Commandments and OBEY THEM are the ones who LOVE ME. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”
  • John 14:24 Jesus says "Anyone who DOESN'T LOVE ME will NOT OBEY ME."
  • John 15:10 Jesus says, "When you OBEY MY COMMANDMENTS, you remain in MY LOVE,just as I OBEY MY FATHER'S COMMANDMENTS and remain in His love."
  • Luke 6:46-49 Jesus says, “So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t DO (OBEY) what I say?"
  • Titus 1:16 "Such people claim they know God, but they deny him by the way they live. They are detestable and DISOBEDIENT, worthless for doing anything good."
  • Revelatian 2:26 Jesus says, "To all who are Victorious, who OBEY ME TO THE VERY END, To them I will give authority over all the nations."
  • Rom 2:6-10, 2 Thess 1:7-9, Eccl 12:13-14, 1 Peter 1:14-17, Matt 5:19     [END]

Video: Lukewarm "Christians" Judgment Day-Are You Ready? (2/9) SO4J-TV   

This Video above is from SO4J-TV, and it is about the Fate of FALSE CONVERTS (APOSTATES) who come to the EDGE of Saving Faith— but they eventually REJECT or WALK AWAY from the Truth (Video Portayal of Matthew 7:21-23). Lukewarm Christians (Apostates) are UNSAVED People who: THINK, TALK, LOOK like they are Saved. FYI - These Are NOT Genuinely Saved Christians portrayed in this Video— as they were NEVER Saved in the First Place. In Matt 7:21-23 Jesus says, "I NEVER KNEW you, Depart From Me, You Who Practice Lawlessness (Break God’s Laws)."


NOTE ABOUT THE VIDEO:
 Our Aim at SO4J-TV & Video is to provoke All of us to Examine our Faith with the God's Word (2 Cor 13:5), and make sure that we are Biblically Saved, and Ready to Face Jesus on Judgment Day (2 Cor 5:10Heb 9:27). Even though we are Not Saved by Good Works or Legalism (Eph 2:8-9), our Faith is Proven to be Real by our Good Works (James 2:14-20Matt 3:8). If there is No Obedience to Jesus & God's Word (1 John 2:3-6Luke 6:46) out of a Love for Jesus (John 14:15,21,23-24John 15:10,14, John 3:36John 8:31) & one Continues In Sin (1 John 3:8-10) then we'll have to Face the Terrifying Consequences of Heb 10:26-31 which Jesus Warns us about also in Matt 7:21-23 where MANY who Thought they were Saved will spend Eternity in Hell. This is called APOSTASY— which is a REJECTION or DESERTION from FAITH in JESUS & GOD'S WORD. Where people HEAR & RESPOND to the Gospel by making a "DECISION FOR CHRIST" or "PROFESSION OF FAITH" (like Judas did). False Converts come to the Edge of Saving Faith— but they eventually REJECT or WALK AWAY from the Truth when Tested with the CARES & LURES of this Life, PROBLEMS (Matt 13:19,21,22) etc. A False Convert named Demas in the New Testament is a Good Example of that. Demas made a "DECISION FOR CHRIST" became a Fellow Laborer with the Apostle Paul, Mark, and Luke in Philemon 1:23-24 — but when Tested with the "Cares of this Life" Demas did not Endure (Matt 10:22) in God’s Word— Read 2 Tim 4:10. Jesus warns us over and over again about True & False Conversion i.e. the PARABLE OF THE SOWERMatt 13:3-23Mark 4:3-20Luke 8:5-15. Jesus warns too that "MANY" people will PERISH, and FEW (Percentage wise) Truly become Born Again— Matt 7:13-14Matt 7:21-23Luke 13:23-30Matt 22:14Phil 3:18-19. A True Believer should Reflect the GLORIOUS IMAGE OF CHRIST in our Lives (2 Cor 3:182 Cor 5:17Matt 5:16), by living HOLY & CLEAN lives (1 Pet 1:14-15,16-17) for GOD'S GLORY (1 Cor 10:31)— and Obey God's Word out of a LOVE FOR JESUS (Mark 12:30-31Matt 10:37-39John 14:15).
