Acts 13:40 Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets; 13:41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you. 13:42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath. 13:43 Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.

EVEN AT A TIME LIKE THIS, WHEN MULTITUDE ARE DEPARTING FROM THE FAITH, WANDERING INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE DEAD AND STRAYING AWAY FROM THE NARROW ROAD, HEED THE WARNING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AND CONTINUE TO THE END AND YOUR JOY SHALL BE FULL HERE AND HEREAFTER IN JESUS NAME.

Dearly beloved brethren, Jesus Christ our Lord, because of the great price, He joyfully and willingly paid for our Redemption, deserve our utmost obedience and loyalty.

And because of this, it is expedient and every Bible believing believers are under compulsion to heed the warnings of Christ at whatever cost.

Our Lord gave the church a charge before His ascension.
Listen to it.

Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

This charge is not for ministers but for the whole church but with His blood.

Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

THE CONGREGATION OF THE DEAD || HEED THE WARNING OF OUR LORD AND CONTINUE TO THE END SO YOU WONT WANDER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE DEAD

No member of Christ’s church is obliged to love any being, whoever they are more than Christ Jesus our Lord and Master.

He Jesus is our Lord and Master. He is the undeniable Master and Lord and head of His church, bought with His blood

John 13:12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? 13:13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. 13:14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.

Ephesians 5:23
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

Colossians 1:18
And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Again remember and never ever forget no member of Christ’s church is obliged to love any being, whoever they are more than Christ Jesus our Lord and Master

Matthew 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

Out of the mouth of two or three witnesses God’s word is affirmed.

Luke 14:25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

No being, whoever they are or minister, irrespective of their anointing and the crowd following them ,deserve your respect, who is using anything to make you to turn your back from your wholehearted obedience and loyalty to Christ our Lord, Master and King .

Listen to apostle of love

2 John 1:6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 1:8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 1:11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Listen to the apostle to the gentiles, our own apostle.

Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Listen to the apostle and half brother of our Lord Jesus Christ, reminding us of what Jesus Christ, commanded us.

Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

He said, you a member of Christ church, should contend for the faith earnestly . Listen to him again.

Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints

The faith, what does it mean?

First,. See the scriptures repeat the same thing .

Acts 6:7
And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

Acts 14:22
Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

Acts 16:5
And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.

Acts 24:24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.

THE CONGREGATION OF THE DEAD || HEED THE WARNING OF OUR LORD AND CONTINUE TO THE END SO YOU WONT WANDER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE DEAD

So what is the meaning of the faith, according to the Bible? Listen.

Acts 24:24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ

24:25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

Paul was preaching to Felix the governor and his wife and he trembled.

Pastor, Bishop, daddy, mummy, when last were you preaching to your congregation or your members of your households and they trembled?

And fear of God, gripped them and they repent and give their hearts and lives to God?

Isaiah 66:2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

You must not be teaching your congregation or households smooth things that made them happy and remain in sin and hellbound, but teach them things that shall make them feat God, turn from wickedness and to righteousness. Listen to it yourself again.

Acts 24:24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ

24:25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

The Bible says even you, yourself , examine yourself, are you in the faith? Do you believe and living by the totality of God’s eternal unfailing unchanging infallible Words?

2 Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Only by doing this, that your eternal well being and your hearers are guaranteed

No wonder the Bible says buy it with your life,. If you have not been doing it and if you have bought it and bring doing it, don’t sell it, until Christ comes.

Proverbs 23:23
Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

Never wander away from it , living by the entirety of God’s eternal unfailing unchanging eternal words till Christ comes.

Proverbs 21:16
The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

This according to Christ shall help you to be saved here and hereafter in Jesus name.

Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

So heed the warnings of Jesus, enter into the narrow gate.

Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

It is a lonely and very narrow road, enter and remain there till you meet Jesus in the air in the rapture or in glory at eternity.

Luke 13:23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 13:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

Jesus said you should not look back and avert what happened to Lot’s wife.

Luke 9:57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 9:58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 9:59 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 9:60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. 9:61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Luke 17:32 Remember Lot’s wife.

He said you should determinedly continue in His entire words to the end.

John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Remain in Christ till the end .

John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
