Genesis 30:1 And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.

Dearly beloved brethren, the blessed Holy Spirit is set to reveal the most important thing, that shall make you to be full of joy, every time you see Jesus in eternity.

You are going to discover that 90 to 95% of the so called Bible believing believers in the world, fall into the category of Rachel.

Beloved brethren, please be very sincere and allow the blessed Holy Spirit is examine you and reveal your true picture to you.

Do you really claim to love Jesus? Well I really wish it is true. But then, our Lord Himself has discovered that it might not be true.

This is because, if you really love Him, it can be easily verified. See this.

John 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. 21:16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

ENVY DESTROYS || Envy puts our focus on the wrong things. Looking at others and resenting their success rather than looking to God will damn you.

If you really love Jesus as you claim, you shall be fruitful. See the following.

John 15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. 19:13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

ENVY DESTROYS || Envy puts our focus on the wrong things. Looking at others and resenting their success rather than looking to God will damn you.

Sinners will never come into the kingdom, without you doing something to bring them to Christ.

Romans 1:13 Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles. 1:14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. 1:15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.

If your claim of loving Jesus is true, you will be doing everything to bring sinning world to Him, as He desired and commanded you in particular to be doing.

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

But then, very very unfortunately, most believers globally and perhaps you are like Rachel.

You can go to any length to attain earthly things, but can do less to nothing, to bring souls to God’s kingdom. See it yourself again.

Genesis 30:1 And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.

Rachel was willing to lay her life down get a child. May be you also might be doing same to get a job, to acquire a property or travel abroad etc.

You have plenty of treasures on earth, but you are not rich towards God. See this yourself.

Luke 12:15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. 12:16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 12:17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 12:18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. 12:19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 12:20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 12:21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

Matthew 6:21
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

The Bible reveals such professing believers, miserable believers.

1 Corinthians 15:19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

John Knox told God to give him Scotland or he will die.

One of the Wesleyan’s told God to give him souls or take his soul.

These brethren were not joking, this singular goal was the pursuit of their lives, till they breath their last.

Beloved brethren, see what the scriptures says about undying souls of men.

What you should be doing if in deed you love Jesus.

Galatians 4:19
My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,

Isaiah 62:1 For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. 62:2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name. 62:6 I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, 62:7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. 22:31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

Daniel 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Jude 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Beloved brethren, look around you. Your unsafe spouse, children, parents, siblings, close and extended family members, colleagues in the office and neighbors that are not saved.

All these people are one step away from eternal damnation and yet, you are still like Rachel.

You are willing to do anything to attain the transient things and doing next to nothing to safe the souls of multitude of sinners surrounding you.

Listen to this. May it not affect you in particular in eternity.

Ezekiel 3:17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. 3:18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 3:19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. 3:20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 3:21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.

The good Lord shall help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
