Refusing God's invitation keeps you from believing.
The blessings of heaven come from following the Teacher; He said to love the Lord and your neighbor.
Serve, and do some of the lowly work. Jesus sends us to carry the gospel to people; if they accept us they accept Him and God. They will know we are His disciples by our love for each other. Do not be troubled. Trust in Jesus, and believe that He is coming back to take us to heaven. Jesus is the only true way to eternal life with God the Father. He is One with the Father, speaking and living the principles of God since they live in each other, as the miracles show. Believers will do what Jesus did and have His joy. Jesus loves and lives in them, and so does God the Father and the Holy Spirit. When Jesus and the Father see you continually applying their principles (one is to believe in them) and producing many lasting good results, they will give you whatever you ask for in Jesus' name, and Jesus will give you His peace as well. Whoever does not bear good results will be cut off from God and burned. Jesus knows you love Him by the way you apply the principles, which is summed up by loving each other as Jesus loves us. Doing much of this will bring glory to God, and He will reveal Himself to us. As you love, some who belong to the world and hate God may hate you for speaking about Jesus. Tell people about Jesus, even though some misjudge and hurt you. The Holy Spirit is here in the world convicting people of where they stand before God, and making the Father's principles known to us. Believing in Jesus brings God's love into your life, and through Him you can overcome this troublesome world. (principles from JH13:1-16:33) .................................... Jesus has authority over all of us; we need the Father and Son to bring us into eternal life, which is knowing Him. We will glorify Him by doing all the work He has given us to do. Jesus and the Father are one; the Father will protect us to keep His people one with each other. The Father and the Son will be in us, and us in them. Jesus is giving us all His joy. Even though the world hates us, God will protect us from the evil one. And through Jesus, we can overcome our own harmful desires. The world will know Jesus came from God and that God loves us when they see we believers are in God, and when they see the way believers love each other and the complete unity God brings about in us, which is a glorious thing. And these are things we pray about; that God will protect us from evil, make us one with each other, and set us apart by the truth of His word. Our believing in Jesus will bring us into heaven. God loves us and lives with us. (principles from JH17:1-17:26)
The rich will only enter the kingdom of heaven with great difficulty; it is hard to give away a large portion of your wealth (see also LK 19:1-10), (soften the heart and repent of that selfishness). God will bestow many blessings of heaven on those who give things up for Jesus' sake. And for those who get puffed up and think they are better than others, He will take action to help overcome this harmful problem. God will put us to work in fruitful ways and reward us after we are finished. Don't grumble against God's generosity toward other believers. (principles from MT19:15-20:16)
Blessings come through godly character in spite of the persecution that having it brings. (principles from MT4:23-5:12)
