John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.'
True and False Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ
The be a true Disciple, the Lord Jesus must know you! [See John 14:23-24 at the top of this webpage]
That means you must have fulfilled the demands of His Perfect Gospel and have him and his father come and make their home with you!
You will never love and obey Him, if you don't know who he is!
Many Lost Souls seek to enter Heaven through the religion called Christianity. But fail as they fall in love with their Church and it's Leaders!

What Five Apostle's said...
In the Holy Bible five Apostles each give us their portraits of the Lord Jesus Christ who called them to live with him and learn from him as he carried out his Fathers wishes here on earth all those years ago.
Matthew gives us a portrait of Jesus as The Kingly Messiah.
Jesus is called "king" eight times: 2:2, 21:5; 25:34, 40; 27:11, 29, 37, 42.
Called "Son of David" nine times: 1:1; 9:27; 12:23; 15:22; 20:30-31; 21:9, 15; 22:42.
Recurring word, "fulfilled," indicates that the Messianic prophecies were fulfilled in him.
Mark gives us a portrait of Jesus as The Wonder Worker.
The miracle worker and tireless servant of God and man. Demonstrates his divinity and compassion by his mighty works of mercy and help, 6:2. "That he even does miracles!"
Luke gives us a portrait of Jesus as The Friend of Sinners and Outcasts.
Coming to seek and save the lost, 19:10.
See stories of.
John gives us twenty one different portraits of Jesus.
Each chapter of the gospel of John contains a portrayal of
some special aspect of the character or work of Jesus.
John, knew Jesus was Alive.
Jesus, the Lord of Judgement.
Jesus, the Lord of All.
The outlook of Revelation is larger than the Church of Christ. It deals, not with the relation of God as father to the company of saved in the church, but to His larger relation as King and Governor of the whole earth.
There has been a great deal of cloudy thinking and teaching on these subjects. Many seem to imagine that the Church and the Kingdom of God is the same thing. The fact is that the Kingdom of God is infinitely larger than the Church, and includes that whole realm over which God is King, and in which that Kingship will finally be established.
Today the true Church recognises and submits to that Kingship. The time will come when all nations shall recognise and submit. The true Church is an instrument to that end. Yet she is a complete entity within herself, having her specific vocation in future ages.
Jesus, Warns about the Danger of Being Lukewarm.
Let His words to the Church of Laodicea be a warning to us, not to cheapen His grace and patience. May our response to His appearances, exhortations, warnings, teachings, commands and promises be right. For as Right People, right with Him and right with each other, we will be united by the true Holy Spirit with confidence in His power and Christ's reward to all whom overcome sin. Do not be lukewarm but let His words to the Church of Laodicea be a warning to us, not to cheapen His grace and patience.
May our response to His appearances, exhortations, warnings, teachings, commands and promises be right. For as Right People, right with Him and right with each other, we will be united by the true Holy Spirit with confidence in His power and Christ's reward to all whom overcome.
Jesus, Both Lord and Victor.
Jesus, a Perfect Lord.
Jesus, A Powerful Light.
That light was eclipsed in the darkness of Calvary's Cross, but from behind the dense cloud, it broke again to shine upon all those who receive life by the way of that Cross, and through them to flash upon the night of the world.
Jesus, An Honest Lord.
Paul New Jesus Was Alive
Who is the Lord?
The title "Lord", as given to the Saviour, in its full significance rests upon the resurrection Acts 2:36; Romans 10:9; 14:9, and is realised only in the Holy Spirit 1 Cor 12:3.
Jesus, a Living Lord.
Jesus, a Lord of Action.
Like us who are already saved, Paul was a sinner saved by grace Acts 9:3-6; 26:13-18. He was heading towards Damascus in pursuit of ardent Disciples of Christ, with the intent of doing them great harm. At this time, despite his great theological scriptural knowledge, he did not know the Lord Jesus Christ was alive. Suddenly Jesus appeared to him, and asked him, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?''
This statement form the Lord clearly reinforces the truth that he was living with those whom Paul was seeking to persecute. Moreover, you cannot persecute a dead man!
From being an enemy of the Lord Jesus, Paul became his servant. The Lord Jesus sent him to, and promised to rescue him from both Jews and Gentiles. To open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness from sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith only in Jesus; a living Jesus.
Several times Paul was to see a living Lord Jesus Acts 18:10; 22:18; 23:11.
When studying Acts 23 it is vitally important to note that the Lord Jesus did not appear to the sectarian Jews or the Romans. I wonder why that was. Acts 23:12 will give you a clue.
Jesus, a Lord of Divine Power.
Miracles were part of the Jewish and Christian way of life, 1 Chronicles 16:12; Nehemiah 9:17; Job 5:9; Job 9:10; Psalm 77:11; Psalm 77:14; Psalm 78:12; Psalm 105:5; Psalm 106:7; Psalm 106:22; Matthew 7:22; Matthew 11:20; Matthew 11:21; Matthew 11:23; Matthew 13:58; Matthew 24:24; Mark 6:2; Mark 6:5; Mark 13:22; Luke 10:13; Luke 19:37; John 7:3; John 10:25; John 10:32; John 10:38; John 14:11; John 15:24; Acts 2:22; Acts 8:13; Acts 19:11; Romans 15:19; 1 Corinthians 12:28; 1 Corinthians 12:29; 2 Corinthians 12:12; Galatians 3:5; 2 Thessalonians 2:9; Hebrews 2:4. It was never the actual miracles performed that Jesus' opponents complained of, it was where, when, or why he did them.
Hated Like His Lord.
The Devil and True Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ
BUT, God allowed them to overcome Satan and ALL who follow him.
