Which denomination or religious affiliation died for you? Can any give you eternal life? Which religious group is Christ coming back for? Is it Catholics, Baptist, Presbyterian, Judaism, Buddhism, Jehovah’s witnesses, etc? No where in the Bible, did Jesus mentioned ,that He is coming back for any specific group. So why are we so troubled,about religious affiliations when He said, in John 14:1-3 ,”let not your heart be troubled ;ye believe in God,believe also in me . In my Father’s house are many mansions, if it were not so,I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you…..”. Where did it mention denomination or affiliation? Then 1Thessalonians 4:16-17 says,”For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,with the voice of the archangel, and the dead in Christ shall rise first…”. Did it mention denomination or affiliation? So why is it that so many people are defending their religious organizations, that they are associated with, instead of the one who died for them on the cross.The truth is, when Jesus returns ,He will not be coming for denominations,neither is He concerned about which day you worship on. He is more concerned about your personal relationship with Him,and for those who accept,love,and live for Him daily.People like to debate over denominations and which day to worship, but when you have a relationship with God it will automatically lead you to worship and fellowship with Him daily. Our fellowship is not with people, it is truly with our heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ as 1 John 1:3 tells us.
We are all adopted sons and daughters of God through Jesus Christ. John 1:12-13 tells us that, “As many as received Him (Jesus), to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born not of blood, nor of the will of flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” Denominations are of men, not God. We are all His children, no matter what color, creed or nationality. You don’t belong to a denomination; you belong to God, get it right, get out of the dark and see the light.
God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all, so if we say we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie and do not know the truth; 1 John 1:6 tells us this. If you are still dancing to the music of the world and not Biblical songs and hymns that glorify the true and living God then you are walking in darkness. If you lie, steal, cheat and do all manner of evil then you are walking in darkness and God’s truth is not in you. Whatever you do that is against God’s will, His commandments or His word, then you need to repent and allow God to shed His light so that whatever is not of Him will be exposed and thus you can walk as children of the light.
For those who want to hang out, drink and party continually then go to church as if nothing happened you are walking in darkness. Psalm 1 says blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly. So if you are doing things that is not of God you are in conference of the ungodly. 1 Corinthians 5:17-18 tells us that a person is to be new and the old lifestyle should have been demolished and a new person in Christ erected and established. So you don’t want to hear from Jesus, “Depart from me I never knew you,” on judgment day (Matthew 7:21-23).
Romans 13:12 “…cast off the works of darkness, let us put on the armor of light.”
