Reflecting on the decision made for Jesus Christ

The last point of the signs that genuine faith is neither prove nor disprove is the decision made for Jesus Christ.

At all times there were people who thought, that they had opted for Jesus Christ. But by the way of her life, could nobody this recognize. That was then, as now, the fact that them a false Jesus, were taught. Just think back on the time of the Crusades. All the knights who participated in it, thought on behalf of the Lord Jesus Christ to fight, in fact, she only followed the call of power-hungry princes of the Church of their time.
Today, people go to great pop concerts with video wall and lighting effects, where additionally, but deliberately the alleged word of God is proclaimed. In this emotionally fuelled atmosphere, go all who were invited to come, in an ecstasy forwardly, to handed over, to a Jesus Christ, how does not exist in this type. Clever advertising strategists have especially for these so-called evangelistic campaigns invented a Gospel light, so that they can present to record-breaking numbers of supposedly newly rescued souls. After that time nobody does preach the pure Gospel, that the newly recruited not scare. Should such a person once read the Bible and ask shocked, then will someone explain that much of the Bible is not date anymore, and he has nothing to worry about. There are even today priests and theologians (Scribes and Pharisees), who lead the people astray.

Given these findings, I wonder how many Christians there would be actually, if you would preach and teach the Gospel today, how it's done Jesus Christ at his first coming?

Jesus Christ tells us in Luke 8, 13 - 14 why a decision made for him is not proof of genuine faith. He says: "Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away. The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature."

We see, not the decision demonstrates the true faith, only the fruit, which means how someone who has chosen Jesus, live ​​his life. However, in order to bear fruit you should know that Jesus Christ himself has said that the entire Bible is valid forever. Only those who know the word of God, so the Bible can also bring fruit.
Let no one deceive you, because God's Word has not changed. God's holy day is still Sabbath and God's festivals are just those which he has decreed. The new covenant, which as many as an excuse, is another covenant of God with the children of Israel, who just does not abolish the feasts of the Lord, or other celebrations used.

If you decide you for Jesus Christ, you should know exactly for whom they choose. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who will establish his kingdom at his second coming. His day of the Lord will be the Sabbath, its feasts will be the feasts of the Lord and His laws will be the laws and commandments of God.

No one should think that Jesus will set up a kingdom without laws, for the Lord is not an anarchist.

In the second part of my series, I'll make my thoughts on the safe signs of genuine faith.

The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake. Great is the Lord in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations. Let them praise your great and awesome name— he is holy. The King is mighty, he loves justice— you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right. Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy. Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who called on his name; they called on the Lord and he answered them. He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud; they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them. O Lord our God, you answered them; you were to Israel a forgiving God, though you punished their misdeeds. Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the Lord our God is holy. Amen
(Psalm 99, 1-9)
