Truth Or Consequences - Pastor Brian Kinnett

Truth Or Consequences - Pastor Brian Kinnett

It does not take but a second to deceive ourselves, we look around our society today which 80 % self-identify as Christians, (because the word means nothing to them it is as if  they believe it is their birthright) but the problem is they don’t know Jesus, we have raised a generation of church-goers who do not share Jesus because they do not know Him, they are just as lost as the generation of non-church goers who believe they are Christians and heaven bound because they are born that way.

The problem is people have no moral basis they have turned on their creator and created a god that changes as they do.

Many people ¬who are churchgoers and non-churchgoers will perish and spend eternity in Hell because they have no personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

They only know "the Jesus the pastor preaches" or "the Jesus my spouse believes in" or the “Jesus my parents believe in” or the history channel talks about, or the T.V preacher talks about, instead of the Jesus of their own salvation.

We do not become a Christian because we are born that way, or because we set in church, or because our parents were, or because we asked Jesus in our hearts.

We must repent, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit.  Repentance is admitting you’re a sinner, and need God’s forgiveness, reconciliation, and receive Jesus as your savior for He paid for your sins.

Believe is an action, it is not a mental belief it is more that Do you trust that Jesus is your Savior? Are you relying on His death as the full payment for your sin debt? Are you depending on His resurrection as the guarantee that you, too, will be raised to eternal life after death? We can call ourselves Christians, but if we do not put that belief into action it is only a theory.

Do you believe the things above? If so, great, but believing the facts about Jesus is only part of the equation. Biblical faith/belief is far more than believing certain things to be true. Biblical saving faith is also trusting/relying on those facts. A chair is a good illustration. You can look at a chair and believe it is made of materials strong enough to support your weight, and you can believe that it was assembled correctly. But that is not biblical faith. Biblical faith is sitting in the chair. It is actually relying on the chair to hold your weight off the ground.

 James 2:19-20 HCSB 19 You believe that God is one; you do well. The demons also believe -- and they shudder.  20 Foolish man! Are you willing to learn that faith without works is useless?

You see when we submit to our belief, we commit. No turning back and we understand and believe what the Bible says about Jesus, and when trust in those truths as the basis for salvation we are saved!
God wants us to go deeper ALWAYS. We have sipped where we might have drunk deeply, and stayed where we are because it is safe. Jesus did not die because He lived a safe life. He did not sip from the cup of God of God’s wrath, He drank it so you and I can be free from the penalty of sin and death. It cost Jesus everything for our salvation, not so you and I could play Christians, but so we would die to ourselves and live fully for Christ.

Galatians 2:19-20 HCSB 19 For through the law I have died to the law, so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ 20 and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

We have many false churches, religions and teachers among us today, from Jehovah Witness, to Mormons, to Baptist, Catholic, Methodist, Lutheran’s, Churches that are independent, Churches that call themselves Churches of God or Christ, and so on.

2Peter 2:1-3 HCSB 1 But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, and will bring swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their unrestrained ways, and the way of truth will be blasphemed because of them. 3 They will exploit you in their greed with deceptive words. Their condemnation, pronounced long ago, is not idle, and their destruction does not sleep.

How do we know who speaks the truth and who doesn't? Those that deny Jesus is God, was sent from the Father to die for our sins, are heretics and will answer. (Deny is another word that is an action, not only in word but in how they live, you cannot say I believe in Jesus and His word and ways, then live like the world, friendship with the world is enmity with God. )

1John 4:1-6 HCSB 1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  2 This is how you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit who confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God. 3 But every spirit who does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist; you have heard that he is coming, and he is already in the world now.  4 You are from God, little children, and you have conquered them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5 They are from the world. Therefore what they say is from the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God. Anyone who knows God listens to us; anyone who is not from God does not listen to us. From this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of deception.

Does your life match your faith? Does it show you believe or deny who Jesus Christ is?


Matthew 7:21-23 ESV 21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?' 23 And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.'
