Who do you obey?


Romans 6:16, “know you not that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey, whether sin unto death or of obedience unto righteousness?”

We all have been talked into doing something stupid or irrational by our friends, family, or co-workers. We all have listened to the wrong person, at the wrong time, with the wrong ideas and thought yea that sounds good. There is a worldly wisdom, there are worldly principles, there are worldly philosophies, there are worldly religions, or false religions, Jesus said “there shall arise false Christs, false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders insomuch that if it were possible they shall deceive the elect” Matt 24:24. This passage tells us plainly that we will sin if we follow the wrong “voice” or teaching or preaching or wisdom or philosophy. Jesus said there would be people with great signs that are false Christ and prophets. So how do you know you are following the Real Jesus Christ that died on the cross was buried for three days and rose?


Simply this, by reading the New Testament of Christ. The New Testament of Christ has been bound and sealed in Heaven. It is the same for every man. God does not preach two messages that would make Him the author of confusion. God has only one agreement between God and every man that is mediated through the redeeming work of Jesus Christ who has done all the work needed to reconcile with God. We need not a new revelation, we do not need a new word from God, what we need to renew our minds with the already spoken and recorded word of God found in the pages of the New Testament of Christ. Jesus warned us about false Christs, false prophets, and also said this of the religious leaders called the Pharisees, “every plant which my heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up, let them alone, they be blind leaders of the blind and if the blind lead, both shall fall into the ditch” Matt 15:13-14.


So Jesus let us, …and be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of our mind, that we may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will from You our God, in Jesus name may it be so.
