Wide or Narrow Gate Believer

Do you believe there are many paths to Heaven? If so, you are Wrong!

John 14: 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me.

Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Luke 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

Matthew 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.It is a sad fact that many who claim to be a Christian and claim to know Jesus as Lord and Savior, do not. Most have a head knowledge of Jesus but do not have him in their heart. These include good and moral people who attend Church on a regular basis and do good works. Unfortunately being a church member or doing good works will not get you into heaven. Only believing in Jesus Christ and what he did will save you. Many do not know why Jesus came as the preacher in the pulpit is not telling them for fear of offending some one. That’s a seeker sensitive social gospel and will only lead a lost soul to Hell.

Jesus came for one reason and that was to redeem man from his fallen state. Sin has caused a wide gulf and separates us from fellowship with God. Jesus is THE Bridge across that Gulf. Notice I said THE BRIDGE and not a bridge. There is only one bridge that will get you across the gap and at that narrow gate that leads to eternal Salvation. I know the majority do not want to hear they are a sinner and will therefore seek out a place where they don’t have to hear about it, and can have a warm fuzzy feeling when they walk in and out of the door, ie, Gate!

New Age gurus and social gospel preachers would like you to believe there are multiple ways to heaven. You are being deceived and lied to. These are the places and beliefs that Jesus calls Wide Gates in the above scripture. Millions enter those gates every week and are destined for the Lake of Fire. He said few find the Narrow gate. ” Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”.

There is a narrow gate or door way that you must choose to enter into. God gave us free will and choice. Some will remember the old game show “lets make a deal”. In that game show there were 3 doors the contestant could choose from. Depending on what one he or she had chosen would determine the prize. Behind 2 of those doors were undesirable prizes. But if the choice was the correct door, there was a grand prize and they were a winner!

Your choice of which door or gate you choose will determine where you spend eternity. There are many doors or gates to choose from, but only one has the grand prize. Its not a game but a serious decision you must make. God is not sitting in heaven saying lets make a deal. His Word says this IS the deal. Its Truth or Consequences. Go look up that game show. Life is not a game friend its real and you must make hard decisions.

Hear is the good news. God has left us an instruction manual on how to choose which door or gate to go through. In that instruction manual, the Bible, there are many hints on which door or Gate to choose from. Here is one scripture that is a no brainer;

Revelation 3:20-22 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Friend, Jesus is knocking at YOUR door. Do you hear him? Will you open the Correct door and let him in so YOU can enter that NARROW gate that leads to heaven? Go here to find out How
