Takes more than believe in Jesus?

I was frustrated sometimes by all the terms and conditions in the bible. Everybody says believe in Jesus u shall be saved.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ” (John 3:16).

Even the Devils and Satan believe in Jesus. They fear him. Read the Gospel. Jesus was face to face with Satan when he was tempted 40 days in the wilderness! When the possessed people with evil spirits saw Jesus, they’d rather flee than face Jesus!! Do we need more evidence that Jesus is God? With believe comes protocols. Protocols are rules.

Let’s face it, there are rules. There are rules of passion, rules of believe. Everywhere, there are rules. Even if you are in the army, love the army, all the more you will abide by the rules of the army, and see these rules as passion, enjoyable. But I need to wear uniform! I need to obey the ranks! I need to be trained! I need to dot dot dot. Exactly, when u believe and love something? Embrace everything.

If you believe in Windows Microsoft, you will study the “rules” of the Microsoft system to understand and Obey. You accept the fact that there are restrictions and limitations. However we enjoy the features that comes with it and let go the restrictions.

If you believe in Apple systems, likewise you will read and obey the “rules” of the apple OS. Of course we can’t compare Jesus,
Christianity to the army, or some software. Be know however, army is the most referred scenario and example usually referred in the bible. Soldier of Christ. Battle. Armor of God. Word of God is double edged sword. The shield.
So using the army is in fact a good analogy.

There is absolutely no way one can believe in something, yet do not want to follow the rules, terms and conditions. Then why bother trusting? Why bother pay money to a doc for treatment and advise and then reject all? Ok, maybe docs are bad example since we do have bogus docs out there. But you get the drift, it is indeed just plain believe In Jesus. By believing, the rest of the terms and conditions comes along. Then it leads to TRULY Believe. It’s interesting to why we have these two phrases don’t we? “Believe”, “Truly Believe”. You mean we have people who “Falsely Believe” Nay. We are talking about 100% believe. No BUTS!! Such as I believe BUT… I TRULY BELIEVE! No Buts. When you truly believe, you embrace everything along with passion. You live by it. You breath it. You talk about it. You study about it. You want to know more about it. You go excited!! No buts!
You accept all the good and bad that comes along with it! In fact, the bad will be regarded as “features”, not exactly bad as it can be overcome.

Thus begone you devil for tempting and poking me on my believe. “Are you sure? Only Believe?”

Choose who you will serve this day. God Jehovah or mammon?

If you love Jesus, believe in him, naturally you will want to know about the characteristics, rules, terms and conditions. So that your life, spirit, action, thoughts will fully be integrated with Jesus. Zero contentions.

Truly Believe.
