About a year ago my husband and I revamped our Private Facebook Group called Hungry Hearts…with teachings that POINT PEOPLE BACK to JESUS!!  Our goal should be to always point people back to Christ….and not to point them to a man, to a philosophy, to a theology, to a man-made self-help doctrine or to a building…but to get them to FOLLOW JESUS ONLY!!!  Today, I attended a service where the visiting Pastor said he had an encounter with Jesus that confirmed this word…and that he felt he was supposed to point people back to Jesus. 

I LOVE when JESUS confirms the words he speaks to you...even a year later!!

I believe when the Lord started speaking to me about getting back to the “simplicity of the gospel” and what it actually meant to FOLLOW JESUS, He was just confirming what He came originally to do.  We are meant to be reconciled back to our place IN HIM. 

A while back I started writing and sharing on my blog articles titled, “Jesus Said It”.  The reason I felt to do this is that we in the Body of Christ have started to listen to other words than the words of our Lord Jesus.  I’ve asked my Christian friends that if Jesus were to walk through the wall where you are today, and look you eyeball to eyeball, with those “fiery eyes of love” and say “This is what I want you to do, and this is what I don’t want you to do” ….would you DO IT?? 

Are we TRUE disciples of JESUS?  Or are we disciples of men?  What WORDS are you listening to?  Whom are you following?  And…are you obeying?

John 8:31-32 - 31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

At the end of my life, when I stand before my Father in the most crushing words that I DON’T want to hear are…

Matthew 7:21-24 -

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

Do you “KNOW” the Lord?  We see here in these words that those who HEAR the words of  the Lord and obeys them is a wise man.  We also see how we define those that “KNOW HIM”….

1 John 2:3-6 -

3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.


We are to HEAR what Jesus said, and DO what He says.

It is not even about if you prophesied, cast out devils, and done many wonderful works (Matthew 7:22).  Are you HEARING the words of  Jesus??

I suggest we get back into our BIBLES (the TRUTH) and REAL WORDS of the Lord, and just READ IT for what it actually says, and not try and twist and turn the words to fit some sermon or 3-points we are trying to make, to not take HIS WORD out of context or interrupt the complete context of a letter HE was writing…but to actually READ the WORD for what it says!!  And then, you or I do not get to pick and choose to believe or do what WE want…but to actually FOLLOW CHRIST and DO what HE SAYS for us to DO!! 

Jesus Christ already gave us ALL the ministry of reconciliation and commanded us to GO….so….did you actually HEAR???

2 Corinthians 5:18-21 -18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.


Get back to the “words in red”, so to speak, START THERE!! Start in the Gospels of Jesus and READ IT, not to sermonize or point people to you… but to SEE and HEAR JESUS!!!  To KNOW HIM!!

This…….really….pretty simple.  Jesus already did the work for you….HE has already conquered death, hell and the grave….you just get to POINT others back to HIM….to JESUS!!!!!  How glorious and preach the “simplicity of the gospel” to those around you!!

Be a TRUE DISCIPLE…be a GOD-PLEASER and NOT a Man-Pleaser today!!
