So,you want to follow Jesus according to the flesh?
The works required under the Gospel of the Kingdom were these:
The Baptism of Repentance,
which was repenting/confessing/baptism
(Matt. 3:1-11, Mark 1:4-5, Luke 3:3, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16).
Matthew 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
Matthew 3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Matthew 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Matthew 3:4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
Matthew 3:5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,
Matthew 3:6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
Matthew 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
Matthew 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
Matthew 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
Matthew 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
Mark 1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
Mark 1:5 And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.
Luke 3:3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Selling all that you had
(Matt. 6:19-34, Matt. 8:20, Matt. 10:8-10, Matt. 13:44-46, Matt. 19:16-24, Mark 6:7-9,
Mark 10:17-23, Luke 3:8-11, Luke 9:1-4,
Luke 12:15-34, Acts 2:44-45, Acts 3:1-6, Acts 4:32-37, Acts 5:1-11).
Forgiving others of their sins against you
(Matt. 6:12-15, Matt. 18:21-35, Mark 11:25-26, Luke 6:37, Luke 11:4).
Maintain good works
(Matt. 5:20, Matt. 5:48, Matt. 16:27, Matt. 19:16-19, John 5:29).
This included very seemingly "little" sins, such as not calling someone a fool
Doing works meet for repentance
(Matt. 3:7-10, Luke 3:8-11).
Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,
pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
You must do this to be a child of God
Bring forth fruit to abide in God's love or be cast into the fire
(Matt. 7:15-20, John 15:1-10).
Do the will of God keeping His words
Endure to the end of the Tribulation until
Christ comes without denying the Lord
(Matt. 10:22, Matt. 10:32-33, Matt. 24:13-14,
Luke 12:8-9, Mark 13:13, Rev. 2:7, Rev. 2:11, Rev. 2:17,
Rev. 2:26, Rev. 3:5, Rev. 3:12, Rev. 3:21, Rev. 21:7,
Heb. 3:6-14, Heb. 4:1, Heb. 4:11, Heb. 6:4-8, Heb. 8:8-13,
Heb. 10:16-17, Heb. 10:38 Heb. 11:31).
Do not take the Mark of the Beast
(Rev. 13:15-18, Rev. 14:9-11).
Do not try and save your physical life
by denying Christ in the midst of persecution,
you will lose your soul if you do
(Matt. 10:38-39, 16:25-26, Mark 8:35-36, Luke 9:24-25, Luke 17:33).
Do not blaspheme the Holy Ghost
(Matt. 12:31-32, Mark 3:28-29, Luke 12:10, 1 John 5:16).
Watch for Christ's Second Coming to the earth and be a faithful servant
(Matt. 24:42-51, Mark 13:32-37, Luke 21:34-36).
Do not hate your brethren
(1 John 3:14-15).
Take care of the Jews and believers in the Tribulation
DO YOU STILL THINK IT IS A POSSIBLE THING TO DO ?
ARE YOU NOT AWARE THAT CHRIST IS RISEN
AND SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD ?
YOU DO BETTER IF YOU TRUST HIS DEATH,
BURIAL and RESURRECTION
and GET SAVED BY GRACE through FAITH !
THE FREE GIFT OF GOD!!
