Here is a great blog post.. I love the 4 points made. Point 4 is usually the most deceptive. MANY Christians out there 'say' with their lips, "Lord, Lord.."... but watch closely for the fruit.. Look for the evidence. Peer through the flesh's giddy emotions and watch for the facts. You shall know the tree by its fruit. Fruit = Their actions. Do their actions line up with what they say? That's how you'll know if you have found a true Christian vs. a worldly/carnal/secular Christian. I hate to say it, but the latter seems to be the norm out there. Be careful beloved... be wise as serpents.. Your enemy is stalking you, seeking opportunity to pounce by using yourself against yourself. 

 

#1)  Seek a true relationship with Jesus Christ.  (Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.)  There is NO relationship that can stand without God at the center of it.

#2)  Quit looking!  Let God "bring" into your life the one HE has chosen for you.  (2 Corinthians 6:14
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?)  This does not mean just that they believe in God, even the devil believes in God and trembles because of Him.  They also need a true relationship with Jesus Christ.  Loving God first and foremost.
#3)  Make sure they are of God. Keep in mind the devil knows what you are looking for also.   (Matthew 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?)  Just because someone teaches a Sunday School class or sings in a choir or even confesses to be a christian, doesn't necessarily mean their heart is right.

 

#4)  Do they reflect the true biblical love of God, not just hearers of the Word but doers also.

Very true thanks for the info.

Very well stated, we are never truly ready for a new relationship until we have come to the place of contentment in Christ, until we come to the realization that He is more than enough and all we need. Let Him orchestrate as He chooses and in His timing. There is no rush when you can trust in God's perfect timing, serve the Lord with your life, daily and He will bring someone like- minded into your path.

This is so true! I was fooled by a man who I later found out his father was a minister. He had tons of bibles in his home and attended church every week, but in reality he wasn't who he pretended to be. I turned completely to the Lord and I now realize that this man was a life lesson for me so I can spot a wolf in sheep's clothing. I know in God's time he will bring a good Christian man to me and in the meantime, my God is my world! I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for him.

I had to cast down this idol. Not easy, but so worth it. When you let the dream die, God is freed up to work His will, not ours. Why would we want anything else?

I like all the points number one is the start number two is a must.number three takes a lot of wisdom.Number 4 love takes action.

Good morning

it seems that i came to the right place just now. This first post speak right to me. Because I once again just threw myself to someone who was not a righteous person to begin with and held on to him for 3 months just to be deceived regularly everyday, I ran here to find some solace. This morning, is just 1 of many wknd morning spent ruminating about what to do, letting go completely , just to change my mind again once the week starts. This time today, I say I am done, wipe the slate clean, delete, block him and throw away the key once and for all.  Having read this and finding keep the faith again, i will not be alone through the weaning process. i said this because my thoughts goes from positive "yes i am worthy" to negative and self-destructive "no i was just born with an aura that repulse everyone and any kind of relationships (even friendships) out of my life. This very first post just hit the nail on the head for me...it fits with my situation perfectly. As a students I keep founding myself waiting for the whole span of time i am committed to school, from an interval of 5 years, then 2 yrs, then 4 yrs. But with each lil break in between when i open up again, i am simply rejected and deceived. I will just quiet my soul here with the help of this community!!! this is a perfect place for me. thanks
