Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root.(Mat 13:5-6)
When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path (Mat 13:20-21 )
The type 2 Christian I call them the prayerless Christian, these one receive the word in their spirit, soul and body. But do not nature it, they are Zealous for only are moment because they lack spiritual growth. The don’t build their spirit (jude 1:23 20 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. ), these causes them to fall into temptation because their lack of spiritual growth doesn’t allow them to offer their bodies. Romans 12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
These Christians end up in a situation that is seven times more painful than when they gave their life to Christ.
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. (Matthew 12:43-45)
These two groups have one thing in common and that is that they can’t enter into eternity because they have not accepted CHRIST whole heartedly [ Acts 8:37(kjv) And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. ] and their spirit are not transformed, Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.(Romans 12:2). Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
If you belong to any of the two groups and you want to change that and make your relationship with God inbox me or ask any good Christian brethren to lead you in the repentance/salvation prayer. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. (Revelation 3:20)
On Thursday I’ll address the remaining two types of Christians
