IMPORTANT NOTE: Before you dive into this keep an open mind, open to the Holy Spirit not to me.
NOTE: This is my conviction, which simply means no coercing. I am sharing this to remind one or two persons out there that which we must yield attention to as believers in Christ. It is to wake up the lazy and sleeping. It is also to encourage the reading of God’s Word with a yearning for the truth which was beautifully lived out and taught by Jesus Christ our Lord while He was here in person. And I hope this will open our minds to the other many truths that are been overlooked in the Bible. And finally, drop the man-made versions, norms, interpretation and sarcasm.
My Lord Jesus opened me up to the four gospel, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John: all HE said specifically, and did as it was recorded. And believe me when I say, there is no going back from here for my heart, mind, spirit, soul and body have been won over.
FYI: The book of John is the most dear to my heart, it such a really detailed and robust record.
As a ”Sharer” who has been observant over the years I know that not many pay attention to all the Lord taught us whilst He was here which means this isn’t popular, neither is it the usual so I know it is going to attract an intense frown but notwithstanding I have decided to share this cos its a platform for sharing. So here it goes.
I am not a Christian — what I am is “being changed” from the inside out and outside in to be in the image of the Son of God Jesus Christ, who willingly gave Himself up for me, obeying the FATHER unto the very end.
I am not Christian — I am a woman of Faith. For it is written,
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me (Galatians 2:20)
I am not a Christian — I am one of HIS branches and HE is the Vine (John 15:5)
I am NOT a Christian — Why should I call myself a Christian when it is not recorded for once that Our LORD JESUS addressed any of HIS by that name or tag? Yes, It was mentioned three times so many will say it is the Bible rightly noted in the book of Acts 11:26, 26:28 and 1 Peter 4:16. And I know fully well that the scripture says not to add or take out of GOD’s Word. So I am not here to add or subtract from the Bible. I am only saying, I choose to be identified exactly by that which my Lord calls me. When HE prayed for me in the book of John, HE addressed me as HIS disciple and believer in advance (John 17)
I am NOT a Christian — Why would I decide to adopt a name that’s not endorsed, by GOD the FATHER, the SON, and the Holy Spirit?
I am NOT a Christian — I have searched through all Jesus, the Christ said in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and nowhere was I called a Christian by the Voice of Truth. So who endorsed it?
I am NOT a Christian — The LORD has intensely sounded some realities to me. He is saying, ‘’you’re forgetting all I said to you, my bride; accepting what your Lord did not endorse.’’ And this is why a bunch of wrongs are flying more or less in the Church, the body of Christ, not the buildings.
I am NOT a Christian — Christianity is a religion. JESUS did not sacrifice himself so I can have religion but have a robust relationship with the Father. Anything outside this is the reason a lot is messed up today which has affected the dedication, focus, and commitment of many. Having believers call themselves what the LORD did not call them daily is causing much more harm than good.
I am NOT a Christian — It’s been popularly accepted to mean Christ-like. So why not just say it in full. ”I am Christ-believing follower.” As HE is so am I in this world (1 John 4:17)
I am NOT a Christian — According to the scripture, Jesus calls those who follow him, disciples. And if I enunciate, I believe in Christ and follow Christ, it means, I am a believer in Christ, which makes me Christ-follower, servant of the Master.
I am NOT a Christian — “ What Jesus did, has made us right with God, made us friends of God, Children of God, joint-heirs, and also citizens of his holy kingdom and hence along. So, yes, I am all that I am called by the Master which means I am NOT a Christian.
I am NOT a Christian — Show me where God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit gave the name Christian and I will accept it in a breath. Until then, I am very well content with what He calls me and who I am in Him.
I am NOT a Christian — Hallelujah! I am a Believer, disciple, servant of God, follower of Christ, Christ’s bride, His Friend, the Church, the body of Christ, a sheep who hears only the Shepherd’s voice (John: 27-28), Child of GOD, who must do only the will of the FATHER with serious obedience, friend of GOD, Kingdom citizen, Worshiper of CHRIST.
I am NOT a Christian — My conviction is based only on GOD’s Word and the Voice of Truth. It does not have to be popular for me to stick with it. The LORD is speaking, saying loudly… COME OUT OF THEM. STAND OUT AND STAND TALL FOR ME.
I am NOT a Christian — It’s time to Clean House. And we must start from the basics. It’s time for correction in accordance with the Word of GOD. I imagine if believers wake up daily accepting their realities as Christ brides, how ready we’ll be for the return of the Bridegroom.
I am NOT a Christian — Is it any wonder you hear countless self-pronounced (Cos nowhere did JESUS pronounce it) Christians say they are mixed up, blurred etc. that’s because they are answering to the name and reality JESUS CHRIST did not register?
I am NOT a Christian — Jesus always emphasized on getting the fundamentals right, cos that stands as a good foundation to lay the rest of the journey upon. And because we have shifted from our basic truth, we go about adopting that which should be strange to us. Who, since the time of Paul, up until now, has been able to proclaim the gospel of CHRIST like Paul? And every time he spoke, he made it clear that he was the follower of the way, servant of the Master. Little wonder he did and achieve such a great fit for CHRIST in his days.
I am not a Christian — My desire is that Christ is truly seen in and through me when all is said and done. (John 14: 20, John 17:23, 1 John 3:24, Galatians 2:20, 2 Corinthians 4:6-7 and 17, John 17:20)
I am NOT a Christian — I am a servant of GOD, the Master’s friend, A follower of The WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. In the end, He will say, well done, good and faithful servant (Matthew 25:21)
I am NOT a Christian — but if that’s how you address yourself, I truly hope you are living the Christ-like life.
Much love and Light. Smiles. *Wink.
