The beginning of the message that is inside of me:
Lukewarm people don’t really want to be saved from their sin; they want only to be saved from the penalty of their sin.
What God says about lukewarm Christians:
Revelation 3:15-16 Amplified Bible (AMP)
15 ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. 16 So because you are lukewarm (spiritually useless), and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of My mouth [rejecting you with disgust].
Matthew 7:18-19 Amplified Bible (AMP)
18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 🔥
John 15:1-2 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Jesus Is the Vine—Followers Are Branches
15 “I am the true Vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that continues to bear fruit, He [repeatedly] prunes, so that it will bear more fruit [even richer and finer fruit].
John 15:4-6 Amplified Bible (AMP)
4 Remain in Me, and I [will remain] in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without remaining in the vine, neither can you [bear fruit, producing evidence of your faith] unless you remain in Me. 5 I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken off] branch, and withers and dies; and they gather such branches and throw them into the fire 🔥, and they are burned.
If you are not in constant relationship and communion with the Father, striving to be more like Jesus and allowing yourself to be corrected and pruned by Him then you will get cut off as you wither and will get thrown into the fire.
Matthew 7:21-23 Amplified Bible (AMP)
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me on that day [when I judge them], ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, and driven out demons in Your name, and done many miracles in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them publicly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me [you are banished from My presence], you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].’
James 2:14 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Faith and Works
14 What is the benefit, my fellow believers, if someone claims to have faith but has no [good] works [as evidence]? Can that [kind of] faith save him? [No, a mere claim of faith is not sufficient—genuine faith produces good works.]
James 2:17 Amplified Bible (AMP)
17 So too, faith, if it does not have works [to back it up], is by itself dead [inoperative and ineffective].
James 2:26 Amplified Bible (AMP)
26 For just as the [human] body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works [of obedience] is also dead.
