Ex Christian

Tabatha Berrios 1988 (New Jersey)

Did God truly know you & you of Him?

If so, why do you turn from Him & blaspheme His name?
How did you turn away & go full force into sin again?

You held the Holy spirit inside you.
You’ve felt peace & assurance.
You’ve felt the unclean spirits leave your body & were delivered.

Did God truly know you & you of Him?
You felt love like never before.
He has shown His face to you & stretched His right hand to cover you.
He has saved you & shown up where no man can never.
Tell me why?
Is it that you’ve only confessed with your lips He is Lord & continued in sin not keeping His covenant.
Did you just flatter Him with your mouth & lie to Him with your tongue.
Go to church to get saved?
Instead of falling to your knees anywhere you might be in your darkest hour & asking God to save you!
Going to church will never save you!
Doing good deeds will never save you!
Being a good person will never save you!

Jesus Christ will & can save you!
& through Him your rotten flesh will die, and you will be resurrected in spirit & be alive in Christ.
That’s when you look for fellowship in church.
That’s when you do good because it comes through Christ.
That’s when you become a good person because you became Christ like for, He is the perfection of how we should be & follow in all His ways.
So, tell me Ex Christian
Did God truly know you & you of Him?
Did you confess with your lips & lie with your wicked heart?

All is not lost, for you left Him, but he has NEVER LEFT YOU! Turn to Him now, the hour is at hand look around you this is the season where all lies will be revealed & all that is hidden you will have no choice but to see.
For every knee will bow & every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God the father.
For He is coming quickly & His reward is with Him, to reward each one as his work deserves.
He is the Alpha the Omega the first & the last the beginning & the end.
Yes, he is coming quickly.
So, I ask again.
Did God truly know you & you of Him?
Or did you confess with your lips and lie with your heart?
