Our God the same God of Abraham and all the seeds of generations there of have been acknowledged of the truth in our salvation. It is a narrow road because only a few do hear and listen. This narrow road is the way. This narrow road is the absolute truth and this only way comes through our Lord Jesus Christ.
MAL 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. Our God has predestined the lamb of sacrifice will come and this was many years before the time of Jesus. The ways of the Lord is so profound and so clear even going back some generations.
HOS 14:9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein. The way of the Lord even with freedom of choice, as the creation, is expected by the will of God to know the way or you shall fall. Do we not hear or listen or are we all deaf?
JER 21:8 And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death. The way of life and the way of death is completely set up by the Grace and Glory through our Lord Jesus.
MT 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah’s, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Many of us whom declare ourselves Christians are generally good people and we assume to believe in God. In today’s society that is acceptable and will leave us many gateways and doors to heaven. The problem here is that we do not have knowledge of what this salvation or the way is by the new covenant or God’s will.
MT 7:13 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:
MT 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
This only way seems to be clear in getting into the Kingdom or heaven of God. Seems to be no other way no matter how good we are. The gate and others will bring death.
JN 14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
JN 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Today we have much doubt and small faith so we try to find ways around the truth spoken by the word. Our Lord will not forsake those whom seek him to have knowledge of the way. The way through Jesus is so simple and God consistently does all the work.
This was done by offering the only begotten son to die on the cross for redemption of all our sins and all sins committed by mankind. When Jesus died on the cross Adam also died on the cross and he was the original sinner. Jesus took the load of that unrighteousness from him and all mankind.
This is the way and it takes a simple acknowledgement that we believe that he did. What is holding us hostage is the sin and evil bondage of deceit.
JER 5:5 I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.
In this verse God is showing us even in the old days past we did not know him, but a few in numbers knew the way. The light of peace does await our calling for the way.
LK 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. The Lord Jesus is the way and only way unto everlasting life.
