EVANGELICAL EXPOSITION

Disciples of The Christ Jesus


WHO ARE THE DISCIPLES OF THE LORD JESUS-CHRIST? Disciples of The Lord Jesus are people who abide ONLY in the words of The Lord Jesus-Christ (Jn. 8:31). They LOVE THE LIFE OF JESUS, AND LIVE THE LOVE OF JESUS. They are not just believers, but more importantly, followers of The Lord Jesus. They do not belong to any organized religions as they belong only to The Lord, and they answer to Him alone. They are truly born of the Spirit whom The Savior likened to the wind (Jn. 3:5-8). True disciples of The Lord who remain such until the end receive not just salvation from hell-fire, but most importantly, the guaranteed eternal. They freely receive eternal life as guaranteed by The Lord, and freely shall they also share the same as guaranteed by The Lord. These disciples are the same group of people who are recognized by God as His witnesses (Isa. 43:10) who will witness and proclaim the truth about The Father to be the ONLY true God (Jn. 17:1, 3) and who alone will be worshiped and served (Lk. 4:8). They are the true worshipers sought by God to render Him a worship in spirit and truth (Jn. 4:24). Although they worship only God, they render all the honors due His Son Jesus The Christ. They honor Him as their only Teacher, their Lord and King, and their Savior. True disciples of The Lord are His friends on earth whom He anointed with His understanding (Jn. 15:15 / 1 Jn 2:20). As The Christ Jesus is 'The King of Kings and Lord of Lords' (Rev. 19:16), His disciples are His subordinate Kings and Lords, people who possess the 'Royal Priesthood' (1 Pet. 2:9 / Isa. 61:5-7) because He shared with them God's Kingdom 'on earth, as it is in heaven.' Disciples come to know The Lord Jesus from their own reading of the gospel books. Aside from the four books of the Canon Gospels, we also encourage to read and learn more about The Savior through the Gnostic Gospels to complement the well received Canon Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. As a secondary source of understanding the message of The Lord, disciples are also encouraged to read the writings of all the apostles and receive them without question. However, disciples do not receive Paul to be among the appointed APOSTLES OF THE LAMB (Rev. 21:14). In fact, true disciples of The Christ encourage all to scrutinize the claims and teachings of Paul and to not receive them as gospels. Be counted among the true DISCIPLES OF JESUS-CHRIST!




The works of the disciples


WHAT ARE THE WORKS OF THE DISCIPLES? The Lord gave His disciples the 'talents' or responsibilities, His works that He wants done by His return (Mat. 25:14-30). One of His very important task is to make more disciples (Mat 28:19-20), more friends and workers of Him who will blanket the world with His truth prior to His return (Mat. 24:14). They do this by baptizing or immersing people with the 'living water' of The Lord, by teaching them the evangelical truth about The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit. With more people made true disciples of The Lord, more people from around the world will do the ULTIMATE WORK OF THE SAVIOR, that is, the sealing of the remnant of Israel (Isa. 11:10-12 / Zech. 13:8-9 / Jn. 10:16). This is the PRIMARY work of The Christ encapsulated in His general work of saving mankind (Isa. 49:6 / Mat. 15:24). The sum total of ISRAEL'S REMNANT numbers to be 144,000 Jews, twelve thousand from each tribe. All disciples of The Christ Jesus around the world need to prioritize this work for the completion of this work has everything to do with The Lord's return as envisioned by John in the book of Revelation (Rev. chapter 7). Be involved in The Lord's PRIMARY WORK OF SALVATION. ..




The Kingdom of God


WHAT IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD? The Kingdom of God, or God's Kingdom, is the RULE or REIGN of The Lord Jesus with the Government (Isa. 9:6), Power (Isa. 41:10) and Authority (Mat. 28:18) of God. The Christ shared this Kingdom (also called Kingdom of the Son-Mat. 16:28) with His followers or disciples starting from the earth and will continue in heaven. Learn more about this very important knowledge about The Kingdom of God preached by The Savior Himself.




On salvation not being the same as Eternal Life


IS SALVATION THE SAME AS ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN? While all who receives Eternal Life are saved, NOT all who are saved have Eternal Life. Salvation is the state of being SAVED from the lake of fire or hell. All who call upon The Lord will be saved (Joel 2:32) from the punishment. However, while calling, trusting or believing in The Lord Jesus to be God's Son and Savior of the world will save one from hell-fire, it does not guarantee anyone Eternal Life. The Complete Jewish Bible presented it very well and straightforward in such "that everyone who trusts in him MAY HAVE eternal life" (Jn.3:16b, emphasis ours). The GOOD NEWS is that The Savior has presented His GUARANTEES for Eternal Life in a very simplistic approach, for He desires to share the same Eternal Life that He now possesses to as many of His followers or DISCIPLES. We present in this link The Savior's 7 GUARANTEES FOR ETERNAL LIFE.
