In a certain sense, we are given choices that determine our eternal course in this life. Jesus
described these choices as between two paths that take us through either a “straight and narrow gate” or a “wide path” that leads to eternal destruction, and many go there. This is to many today somewhat of a simplified set of choices that seem to be somewhat outdated or even unrealistic. I can assure you that to those of you who doubt that life can be so simple as having these two decisions but it is as true today as it was in Jesus day! We can make the decision to reject the God of the Bible and live that very Godless life which consists of self-gratification and basic selfishness. These people try to do good things to try to satisfy their conscience and do it in the sight of others so that those acquaintances or so-called friends will think well of them but they are still empty inside afterwords when all is said and done, but they never really find true satisfaction, it is only when these people give up their efforts to find satisfaction in anything other than God Himself! They must fill that empty spot in their soul, that God shaped area that only God can fill and then and only then will they start to find true peace and fulfillment. This is the straight and narrow gate that leads to eternal life
! It is a narrow path because our choices are limited yet well-defined by the maker of all things and He and only He has the right to say what is good in His eyes and we must obey! The thing to remember is that God truly loves us and only wants that which is best for us so we must give our will to him and simply “Trust”. Since He created us then he absolutely knows what is best! So then, will you surrender your choices to his guidance and simply trust Him? The narrow path is the best path for both you and I! Jesus said to His disciples “Follow Me” and we must do the same I have chosen to follow Him and my life has not been the same! I gave Him the title-deed to my life which he already owned but since he has given us free will, we must make the decision to allow Him to take control of our lives and He will do that which is best for our lives since He knows the future!
Will you consider how well you have done with you in control of your life? Now consider that the Creator of the universe knows how to do it better, much better! Give Him a chance before it is too late! Our days are numbered and He is the only one who knows how much longer we have to make that very important decision and we do not! Once we die then our last chance is gone for ever! We are given plenty of evidence in the creation itself to know that He exists. The knowledge of Him is built into us but sometime during childhood, our society manages to put enough doubt into us to cause us to procrastinate and even deny that He exists. Very few people these days have the courage to actually act on what their inner being as well as all of creation is telling them. They would prefer to live without any restraints and refuse to give-up their “sin”. To admit that there is a Creator as well as a judge and lawmaker would put a crimp into their style and their sin is more important to them than anything else.
Later we die without making that very important decision and then you are without hope because your life is gone for ever! God’s Son paid an incredibly high price to pay for your sins and it is offered as a free gift! Yes I said free. He is offering the gift of eternal life but you must receive it. Please consider that “Straight and Narrow Gate”, while you still can! We have a God-given purpose in life but without Christ in your life, you will never find it, no matter how hard that you try! You do not know the day of your death! God has given you a lifetime of chances to turn your back on sin, repent of your sin and receive the only Salvation available to mankind.
The Lord said that the hairs on our heads are even numbered and so are our days on this Earth numbered as well! This saying about the gates and paths are based on: Matthew 7:13 , from “The Living Word of God”. No other source has the answers to all the most important questions in this life. No other Book has within it the past, present and future laid out and explained in a way that not only makes sense but provides the proof of its claims built into it through “the prophets” and the prophetic psalms as well. The historicity of “The Scriptures” has been proven by archaeologists. The scientific facts that only God could have known at the time of the writing of the old testament have also provided a substantial amount of evidence concerning its validity! Won’t you please consider these things while you still have time?
I have spent my adult life struggling to manage all of the pain and suffering that arose for a variety of reasons in my life from childhood and am making progress. This outlet called blogging is also helpful because I have a great desire to share the extremely unusual events that I have seen and experienced. These things could even be called “Mind Boggling”. I have spent my adult life struggling to manage all of the pain and suffering that arose for a variety of reasons in my life from childhood and am making progress. This outlet called blogging is also helpful because I have a great desire to share my very unusual, even “Supernatural” life experiences and decades of study with the hope of helping other people learn to manage as well as correct their path in life spiritually as well as mentally, emotionally and help them to find the direction that we all truly need even though we may not be aware of those needs. My life has been a great struggle that has even driven me to not only consider suicide but attempt it as well!!! I intend to SHARE AS MUCH AS I CAN WITHOUT revealing too much. I was taking antidepressants as I recall and nothing seemed to work to alleviate my suffering and one day I saw my ex-wife who was responsible for all of this and that was a good part of the trigger that prompted me to swallow a couple of full bottles of strong pills and then went to sleep in my car outside of my mother’s house. You see, my mother played a big part in my decision to end it all at her house because she played a major role in my destruction, mentally emotionally as well as psychologically with the major role that my ex-wife contributed to together. It was similar to a tag team of hate!
For those of you who might be suffering difficulty, I must caution you to absolutely forget any ideas of harming yourself or anyone else! It is not worth the pain and sorrow that you will actually, not only cause yourself when you wake up in Hell but it will also not do anything to get even with those who have caused you all of the pain and suffering that you are experiencing! You will be the big loser, not them! Suicide is NEVER a Good choice even when you think that there is no other choice available! Give it some time and even ask GOD to help you through this difficult period of time! God is the only answer but you must be patient because God works on His own timetable and not ours. These things eventually work themselves out if you will trust God! Give it some time and put your trust in God’s Son by “Faith Alone” and you will find “Eternal Life”!
Eternal life is worth the supposed inconveniences that a person might envision because the suffering of this Earth that most people will experience at some point in their lives does not even compare to the pleasures that Eternal Life” has to offer. Jesus died a horrible death as a substitute for our sins so that we might have forgiveness of sins, allowing us to become children of God, adopted into the family of God! “The Native Olive Tree” is representative of believing Israel and the believers by “Faith” in Jesus “The Messiah” are figuratively grafted into the Olive tree as wild branches or adopted into the “Family of God” by adoption of sorts. God is gracious and loving, wanting all to repent and receive His Son!
I have a responsibility, given by God, to teach you what God has allowed me to learn about Him and a “Spiritual Gift” called “Discerning of Spirits” which has allowed me to see and recognize the spiritual condition of those who have come into my life. I have also been allowed to see the “Spiritual World”, including demons and Satan himself when I was younger. There is great evil actively working against the “Body of Christ”, which Christ is the “Head”. Nothing happens without the foreknowledge of God and the condition of the “Church” or “Body of Christ” in the western world and America in general, is in bad shape. The Church has become soft and “Worldly” and has turned from the great commission as was given by Christ before he ascended back into heaven. We in America have become soft and are not in the “Battle”, in a way that makes Satan concerned at all. We are not making many true converts and discipling them while directing them to a true Bible believing Church to be built-up in their new found faith. The great mistake that the Billy Graham evangelical association made during the early days of their crusades was to not provide the discipleship that they needed by being provided a nearby Bible believing congregation for the support that they desperately needed to provide that stability that a congregation provides!
My desire is to provide that basic teaching that helps to open the eyes of the lost who are seeking the “Truth” in a world that says: there is no truth and do what ever you want because your truth is your own and there is no such thing as “Absolute Truth,” such as the Holy Living Word of God ” that truly provides all truth. Do not be deceived all who reject God’s truth will die in their sins and suffer in torment forever! Give God a chance by asking Him to reveal Himself to you, through Faith in Him for without Faith ,it is impossible to please God!
