The 4 Types of Christian believers in the modern-day churches

 


We cannot compare first-century Christianity to twenty-first-century Christianity because several changes have occurred. Christian believers who hold unto the old customs of the ancient churches are operating in error because their systems are outdated.

Although there are some foundational truths, we cannot ignore them because they hold the pillars of Christianity. For example, the foundation of prayer, Spirit-led fasting, a meditation on the Word (Holy Bible), fellowship with the brethren, and continuous relationship with the Holy Spirit are vital truths we cannot ignore irrespective of the century we find ourselves.

In the olden days, cars, airplanes, and trains were not available, so the Christian believers walked or used donkeys and horses to travel to evangelize and build the church. If you stick to the method of horses and donkeys, you will not make much impact in the kingdom of God.

Today, we have advanced in technology. We can use television, radios, the internet, social media, and several online tools to spread the gospel. Soon, the internet, radios, televisions, social media platforms, and several online tools we value may be irrelevant as time passes.

In the sixteenth century, Martin Luther decided to reform the church because the Roman Catholic practiced certain traditions that contradicted the Holy Bible. Through Martin Luther, we had the protestant denominations (charismatics, Pentecostals, Adventists, Methodists, Baptists, and several Christian groups).

Although most of these Christian groups believe that Christ Jesus is the Saviour and Lord of their lives, the doctrines differ. Martin Luther faced a lot of persecution from the church, but he held his convictions.

Today, Christianity has spread worldwide because of Christ Jesus' sacrifice and sacrifice of various Christian leaders. I believe with my heart that Christ Jesus is King above all Kings and Lord above all Lords because I would have died by now if not by his divine intervention.

I receive numerous attacks in the spiritual realm, yet Christ Jesus protects me. Child of God, Christianity is about faith, and faith rest in the bosom of your heart and the Word (Holy Bible). If you believe with all your heart that Christ Jesus is above all powers and authority, you will triumph over every adversary.

Have absolute faith in the Word of God because the Word has the power to sustain our life. Do not be afraid of the enemy. Build an unbreakable faith in the living Word (Holy Bible) and believe in the name of Christ Jesus because He is the greatest of all powers.

Do not put all your trust in your pastors, families, and friends because they can fail you (Meditate on Jeremiah 17:5-8, Numbers 23:19). If I publish all the visions the Holy Spirit reveals to me, you will be cautious in choosing a church on earth.

You will fast and pray before choosing a church leader as your spiritual father if I publish all the visions the Holy Spirit reveals to me. I know what I am writing to you because the Holy Spirit has revealed several visions about famous gospel ministers and prominent world leaders in the spiritual realm.

This world lies in darkness. It takes the mercies of God to be alive. If you are in Christ Jesus, no evil power can harm or subdue you in the spiritual realm. Trust in Christ Jesus and His Word with all your heart because He will not ignore you when people reject you.

Christ Jesus is the master key to life. In Him, we move and have our freedom. Humankind may give you a favor because of the benefit, but Christ Jesus loves you unconditionally. Christ Jesus died for our sins while sinners (See Romans 5:8).

The love of Christ Jesus is immeasurable. It takes a strong heart and spirit to discern the love of Christ Jesus in your daily vicissitudes of life. If you follow humankind with all your heart, you can miss your path because they have numerous limitations you cannot see with your eyes.

You need the perfect one (Christ Jesus) to fill the empty gap in your life. If Christ Jesus comes into your heart, He fills the gap of depression, pain, confusion, sin, and all forms of darkness in your life because He is love, light, and life.

When the light of Christ Jesus enters your path, every darkness covering your eyes and path will receive the life leading to your deliverance (Meditate on Psalms 119:105). Many people chase after people and temporal assets, yet they cannot find happiness because they have ignored the life-giver (Christ Jesus).

Temporal assets are good, but they cannot deliver you from inner burdens. Christ Jesus alone has the power to deliver you from all oppression and depression. Let me share a vision I had recently.

I want to share this vision with you because I have an impression in my heart that the world and Christian believers must read and know what is happening on earth and in the spiritual realm. In this vision, I saw the unbelievers, I mean strange religious groups building and establishing their kingdom in a specific location of Ghana.

In the vision, I saw religious groups such as the Hindustan’s, Buddhists, Shinto’s, and several groups building their temples in my country. In the vision, I saw and felt that the strange religious groups could build their temples in my country because the Christian believers were inactive in the Spirit.

To be precise, I saw that the Christian believers were not fasting and praying. Only a few Christian believers were praying! The Christian believers' prayerlessness and lack of fasting empowered these strange religious groups to build faster.

In the vision, I felt a strong resistance in the spirit due to the temples the strange religious groups built. The atmosphere became resistant to Christian activities because of the strange religious groups' temples on the land.

Another good news in the vision was that when the Christian believers started fasting and praying, the strange religious groups could not build. It looked like the strange religious group could not do anything when the Christian believers engaged in intensive Spirit-led fasting and prayers.

I also saw that some Christian believers were praying without fasting in the vision. Their prayers did not impact much in the spiritual realm because the strange religious group could build slowly.

I believe the Holy Spirit showed me this vision because He wants the church to engage in intensive fasting and prayers. When the church engages in Spirit-led fasting and prayers, it destabilizes the enemy's works.

Christian believers must be consistent in fasting and prayers because it carries great power in the spiritual realm. Do not wait for the church to organize fasting and prayers before you fast and pray.

Fast and pray in your chambers because the enemy is at work to break the church on earth (Meditate on 1 Peter 5:8-9, Ephesians 6:10-18, Matthew 26:41). With our discipline, the Word, and the Holy Spirit on our side, we shall break through the walls of limitations.

If you check the title of this article, I stated that we have four types of Christian believers. You can read my article titled, types of Christians for more profound revelations. In this article, I will expand the teachings of our Saviour and Lord Christ Jesus to help you understand the types of Christian believers we have in the church.

Knowing these truths will not make you backslide when a Christian believer offend you or leave the church. These truths will help you know the category you belong to so you can repent and move to the best group.

 

And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.

And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,

Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:

But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.

And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.

And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Mark 4:1-9 KJV

In the holy scriptures, we can see that Christ Jesus stated that the Sower (the deliverer of the Word) did his work but had different results. We can observe that Christ Jesus identified four Christian believers in the church.

1. Wayside Christian believers

2. Earthly Christian believers

3. Thorny Christian believers and

4. Good ground Christian believers.

 

  • Wayside Christian believers

These Christian believers hear the sermons of their spiritual leaders but allow the forces of darkness to clear the Word out of their hearts. These Christians ignore the works of the enemy in their life because they are shallow in spiritual matters.

They forget that our battle is spiritual. These Christian believers often only engage in physical battles because they are ignorant of the spiritual warfare in their lives. As a result of their ignorance and pride, the demons, marine spirits, satanic altars, and spiritual host of wickedness takes advantage of them and eliminate the word of salvation from their heart, replacing seeds of hatred and darkness.

Most often, these Christian believers do not put on their spiritual armor. These Christian believers are susceptible to spiritual attack because they do not understand the principles of spiritual warfare and vital Christian truths.

If you belong to this group, the Word of God will not make an impact in your life because you have ignored the essence of spiritual warfare and important spiritual truths. I wrote a short book called, Should We Fight?

Get that book for a more profound revelation. You can also read my series of articles, principles of spiritual warfare, and a series of books for more profound revelations if you belong to this group. Our Saviour and Lord Christ Jesus gave more revelations about these Christian believers.

 

And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

Mark 4:15 KJV

 

  • Earthly Christian believers

These Christian believers receive the sermons of their spiritual leaders but backslide because they have weak faith. One reason they cannot advance in their Christian life is that they allow the storms of this world to dominate their life.

These Christian believers often allow their families, friends, jobs, school, business, and life problems to destroy their faith in Christ Jesus and the Word. If you belong to this group, I encourage you to read my series of articles and books (How to unlock the gate of faith).

Our Saviour and Lord Christ Jesus gave more revelations about these Christian believers.

 

And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;

And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended

Mark 4:16-17 KJV

 

  • Thorny Christian believers

These Christian believers receive the Word with gladness, but they allow the media, internet, social media groups, ungodly secular songs, demons-inspired erotic books, and bad associations to eliminate the Word out of their hearts.

God knows the friends we make in life have an impact on our lives, so He commanded us to abstain from every form of evil appearance (Meditate on 1 Thessalonians 5:22. 1 Corinthians 15:33, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

When you keep hearing bad words, it corrupts your good manners. As a Christian believer, you must not listen to every song and musician because words carry power. Any word you receive into your heart has implications (Meditate on Proverbs 18:21).

It is not every book you must read. Not every video you must watch (Meditate on 1 Corinthians 10:23). Be selective when choosing close friends. Several pornographic sites and images pop on the internet; apply wisdom when browsing because it can become a thorn in your Christian life.

If you allow things that do not glorify Christ Jesus in your life, it will destroy your Christian life. Do not fall into the category of Christian believers who allow the world's accursed things to destroy their relationship with the Holy Spirit. Our Saviour and Lord Christ Jesus gave more revelations about these Christian believers.

 

And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,

And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

Mark 4:18-19 KJV

 

  • Good ground Christian believers

These Christian believers receive the Word and allow the Word to abide in their hearts. After these Christians hear the sermon of their spiritual leader, they take notes and search the scriptures to confirm the truth.

Most often, these Christian believers are workers in the church. These Christian believers allow the fruits of the Holy Spirit to work in their life because they are Spirit-filled and Spirit-led. These Christian believers are not like the wayside Christian believers that often reject the Word.

These Christian believers respond to the call of God. They dedicate their heart, time, and resource to expand the kingdom of God on earth. They sacrifice their time to build the church on earth. These Christian believers obey the living Word.

They have strong faith in Christ Jesus because all their hope rests in the Word. Such Christians receive the Word with gladness of heart because they are nobles. They are not carnal, soulish, nominal, and religious unbelievers hunting after precious souls.

They are not like the wayside, earthly and thorny Christian believers that cause trouble in the church. These Christian believers portray the character of Christ Jesus. They know the systems of God’s kingdom, so trials, storms, and persecution do not destroy their faith.

These Christian believers bear much fruit in the church because they have a strong foundation in the Word. Connect with my series of books and articles if you want to join this category of Christian believers. Our Saviour and Lord Christ Jesus gave more revelations about these Christian believers.

 

And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

Mark 4:20 KJV
