JOHN 12:24


Jesus Asked Me.

One day after five years of continual evangelism, the Lord appeared and

asked me, "Will you die for me?"

He was very serious, as he could see my understanding of reality, and

the love I had for him and his creation;

As I had been on a nonstop attempt to rescue humanity from blindness,

sin and an eternal home in - The Lake of Fire.


The Bible clearly tells us the following:

JOHN 12:24

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone:

but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit."


What is Jesus Saying?

There are different types of people on the earth:

1. Selfish & Rebellious People.

These people live their life upon the earth with one thing in mind.

This one thing is themselves.

These people do nothing for others, without an ulterior motive for personal gain.

These people do not care; to co-labor with God.

These people do not care; about the existence of others.

These people do not care; if others suffer, while they live in pleasure.

These people do not care; that others pass, from the earth into; The Eternal Lake of Fire.

It is sad to report, that these selfish people; pass from this earth into; The Wrath of God.

The name of; The Wrath of God is; The Eternal Lake of Fire.

The selfish people will be eternally in torment, and regret.


MATTHEW 25:31-46

"When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall

he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another,

as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit

the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a

stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee?

Or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? Or naked, and clothed thee?

39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, In as much as ye have

done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting

fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and

ye visited me not.

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a

stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of

the least of these, ye did it not to me.

46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal."


LUKE 16:19-31

"There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously


20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs

came and licked his sores.

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom:

the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his


24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the

tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise

Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass

from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of


29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded,

though one rose from the dead."


God is Not Mocked, You Will Reap What You Have Sown.


"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."


2. Loving & Obedient People.

The other type of people are; loving and obedient to God.

These people know the Bible is; The Written Word of God.

These people live their life out of; The Word of God.

These people serve God in his Kingdom, for the souls of men.

These people are under the authority of God; on a daily basis.

These people are led of God; in their daily life and service.

These people do not call the shots in their own life, but obey God

in his direction and orders for their life.

These people are rewarded by God; on this earth and for all eternity.



"If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land."


JOHN 5:28-29

"Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done

evil, unto the resurrection of damnation."


God Has Called All People, To Be Transformed Into His Image.

GENESIS 1:26-27

"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the

fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every

creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female

created he them."


Not All People Have Complied With God, in This Process.

Eternal ruin; is the result of rebellion.

JOHN 15:1-6

"I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit,

he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine;

no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth

much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them,

and cast them into the fire, and they are burned."


The Marks of Leadership.

Leaders will resemble; the character of God.

1. Leaders Are Mature.

1 JOHN 2:12-14

"I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.

13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write

unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children,

because ye have known the Father.

14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning.

I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you,

and ye have overcome the wicked one."


2. Leaders Are Sacrificial.

JOHN 15:13

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."


3. Leaders Lose Their Life, To Serve Christ.

JOHN 12:25-26

"He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto

life eternal.

26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any

man serve me, him will my Father honour."


LUKE 9:23-24

"And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his

cross daily, and follow me.

24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the

same shall save it."


4. Leaders Know The Price For Betraying The Son of God; is Severe.

ROMANS 11:22

"Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward

thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off."



"The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man

is betrayed! It had been good for that man if he had not been born."


5. Leaders Know; No Idolatry Allowed.

Idolatry is loving anything or anyone, above God.

GENESIS 22:1-18

"And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him,

Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into

the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which

I will tell thee of.

3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young

men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and

went unto the place of which God had told him.

4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.

5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go

yonder and worship, and come again to you.

6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took

the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.

7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son.

And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?

8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went

both of them together.

9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and

laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.

10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

11 And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said,

Here am I.

12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou anything unto him: for now I know that

thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket

by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead

of his son.

14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah jireh: as it is said to this day,

In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.

15 And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,

16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not

withheld thy son, thine only son:

17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven,

and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice."


LUKE 14:26

"If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren,

and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple."

daughter more than me is not worthy of me."


6. Leaders Know; You Cannot Bring Shame To God.


"Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father."


LUKE 14:28-32

"For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost,

whether he have sufficient to finish it?

29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it

begin to mock him,

30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.

31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth

whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?

32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace."



"For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and

were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the

Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame."


7. Leaders Know The Greater Judgment is For; The Fallen Leader.

ROMANS 14:11-12

"For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God."



"My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation."


8. Leaders Are Not Above Any Law; They Obey Them.

ROMANS 2:19-23

"And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness,

20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth

in the law.

21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? Thou that preachest a man should

not steal, dost thou steal?

22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? Thou that abhorrest

idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?

23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?"


9. Leaders Pick Up Their Cross Daily.

Leaders look after the interests of God.

41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him."


LUKE 9:23

"And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up

his cross daily, and follow me."

10. Leaders Do Not Try To Save Their Lives; Their Lives Are in God's Hands.

the same shall save it."


11. Leaders Are Faithful.

LUKE 16:10-12

"He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the

least is unjust also in much.

11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your

trust the true riches?

12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which

is your own?"


12. Leaders Are Diligent.


"Seest thou a man diligent in his business?

He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men."

14. Leaders Obey God.


"So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him,

Thou art my Son, today have I begotten thee.

6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong

crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered."


1 SAMUEL 15:22

"And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in

obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams."

of all comfort;

4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in

any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ."


18. Leaders Rely On God; For Strength.


"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."


19. Leaders Rely On God; For Companionship.

"And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I

may have eternal life?

17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God:

but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery,

Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor,

and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions."


22. Leaders Love God; More Than Their Spouse.

The Account of Moses, Zipporah, Their Child and The Lord;

EXODUS 4:24-26

25 Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet,

and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me.

20 For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you,

if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.

21 I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. Howbeit whereinsoever any is

bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also.

22 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham?

So am I.

23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant,

in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.

25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night

and a day I have been in the deep;

26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen,

in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in

perils among false brethren;

27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in

cold and nakedness.

28 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches."

27. Leaders Know They Need; The Body of Christ.


"And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some,

body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God,

unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with

every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they

lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head,

even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every

joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh

increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love."


28. Leaders Ask God For; Forgiveness.

1 JOHN 1:8-10

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to

cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."


29. Leaders Enjoy; Fellowship With God.

PROVERBS 8:25-31

"Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment:

when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

31. Leaders Know Their Work; Must Remain.

that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest."

you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise

on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same?

47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans so?

48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."
