In part one of this series, we pointed out that much of what Jesus Christ had to say about salvation and how one obtains it has been removed almost totally by the Church and a substitute salvation gospel has been inserted. Peter tells us that this new salvation gospel is a clever look alike but contains a deadly error buried within it.
The remarks of Peter are prophecy and they are now being fulfilled before our eyes. Peter tells us that this new gospel is not only a total contradiction to the Words of Jesus, it redacts what He said, and is in fact, the “BROAD WAY” LIES OF ALL MODERN PREACHERS, TEACHERS, EVANGELISTS AND PROPHETIC MINISTRIES OUT THERE. This is a massive deflection from the truth, and how anyone who calls themselves Christians can so blatantly remove the very words of our Lord and not know it is beyond my comprehension.
Well, they say, Matthew was written to the Jews and does not apply to us as Christians. That is a very odd and stupid remark considering that the entire subject on Matthew Seven, just for an example, is how one enters the Kingdom of Heaven.
I will make a warning here that I fear no contradiction from Jesus now or in the hereafter –
YOU EITHER DO EXACTLY WHAT JESUS CHRIST COMMANDED YOU TO DO OR YOU WILL NEVER SEE HEAVEN BUT WILL INSTEAD SEE ETERNAL RUIN.
Not my words, HIS.
How ANYONE can get around all of this by clever lies is a total mystery, however prophecy must be fulfilled. Apostasy from the truth MUST OCCUR. Having itching ears, these preachers, teachers, evangelists and prophecy ministries are all BROAD WAY CHRISTIANS, totally unaware of their destination just as Revelation 3:14-22 says:
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 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.
21 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.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Notice that only the OVERCOMER is granted the right to sit with Jesus in Heaven. This is true in all seven letters to the seven churches.The word “overcometh” means to have fought a major battle and to have won it. This is opposite of the “broad way”, which means flat, easy, no problems, no troubles.
I would like to zero in on the phrase “AND KNOWEST NOT” that they are totally unsaved and headed for ruin. This entire chapter is a warning to all modern Christians. It is really about THEM in regard to prophecy, and of course it applies throughout the Church Age as well.
All the elements that constitute TRUE SALVATION are embedded here, as well as all the elements that bring one to ruin! The clues are right here, and they verify what Jesus Christ said in Matthew Seven DOES IN FACT APPLY TO THE CHURCH, and ANYONE who tells you differently is VERY DECEIVED and is a liar.
Jesus repeats what He said in Matthew Chapter Seven here, He just words it differently, but it means the same thing. Here is why. In Matthew 7:21-23.
21 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.
22 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?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Jesus makes the remark that He never KNEW these “Christians” and sends them away. In Revelation 3 He says that He stands at the door and knocks, and if any man hears His voice AND opens the door, that He will come into them and SUP with them and they with Him. In other words, a literal, albeit SPIRITUAL ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF.
The people that Jesus Christ sends away He says He NEVER came to “know” them. How is that possible if in fact He is to come to the believer and sup with that believer? It is NOT. What Jesus is warning us about is there was no ENCOUNTER with the LIVING CHRIST. Why? Because they refused to enter in! They would not pick up their own cross as He had commanded them. More on that in Part Three.
When Peter says that the apostate so-called “leaders” of the Church speak “EVIL” OF THE “WAY OF THE TRUTH”, it is Jesus Christ speaking through Peter WARNING that what He said in Matthew Seven applies to ALL CHRISTIANS. It is a warning to all Churches, all denominations. Jesus gave us only ONE WAY to enter Heaven. There are not “many” ways to enter Heaven, ONLY ONE.
It is humanity that claims there are multitudes of ways to get to Heaven, hence we have hundreds of “religions” all claiming they have the truth when none of them do. What Jesus brought with Him is not another “religion”, it is far beyond all religions, so profound in its message that religions are past history. It is man that makes these things into “religions” for all the “religious spirits” out there.
So what “way” is Jesus speaking of? Jesus tells us:
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:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Don’t you find it interesting that immediately after commanding us to enter in at the strait gate and walking the narrow way that Jesus warns of FALSE CHRISTIAN LEADERS who will speak EVIL OF THE WAY, just as Peter claimed?
It is also interesting that in verse 14, Jesus says that this “narrow way” leads to LIFE. What is Jesus speaking of here? Jesus said HE HIMSELF WAS LIFE and John verifies it:
1 John 5:11-13 King James Version (KJV)
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
This is a mystery. He that has the Son of God within HAS LIFE. He that does not have the SON WITHIN has NOT LIFE. Inasmuch as the Son IS LIFE, and inasmuch as this LIFE is at the END OF THE NARROW WAY one must finish the walk to find LIFE, who is Jesus Christ Himself. This is what is missing now – there is no ENCOUNTER, there is NO REVELATION OF CHRIST, NO MEETING, NO FINDING.
Jesus told us this:
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Who is THE TRUTH? None other than the SON OF MAN! Who has the power to set us FREE? Jesus Christ. What must we do to be set free? CONTINUE IN HIS WORD UNTIL WE FIND THE TRUTH, and that TRUTH must be revealed from on high by the Lord Himself, for He is THE TRUTH. We must FIND JESUS CHRIST. The only way to do that is to ENTER IN AND WALK THE “WAY.” We have been given no other way. Refuse it and you will not go to heaven.
Do you see? If life is only at the end of THE NARROW WAY, then the only way to obtain LIFE, and have JESUS WITHIN is via the NARROW WAY. Now if you have Jesus Christ within He could NEVER SAY “I NEVER KNEW YOU.” It all ties together and forms a unified whole. John 10:27-30:
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
30 I and my Father are one.
Modern Christian salvation theology has no strait gate, no narrow way, no cross, no death, no judgment, no repentance and therefore NO LIFE. It is a lie, a deception, for it totally redacts the commands of Jesus Christ. In reality, faith and belief have BECOME Jesus Christ. They are a substitute for the REAL Jesus Christ. What has happened is that modern Christians have been told that CONVERSION is in fact REGENERATION. It is simply a bald-faced lie. CONVERSION and REGENERATION or REBIRTH are a STRAIT GATE AND NARROW WAY APART.
CONVERSION – STRAIT GATE – NARROW WAY – REBIRTH
The NARROW WAY is well defined in the Bible, and also what it means to lay hold of Jesus Christ. Jesus told us to ASK, SEEK, KNOCK, STRIVE and LABOR in order to find the REAL TRUTH and REAL SALVATION. It is not easy, He said, it is difficult. The vast majority REFUSE. Their claim is that Jesus did it all for us, and all we have to do is say a simple prayer and we are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. It is simply not true.
Jesus tells us that if you want to be written in HIS BOOK OF LIFE, you MUST ENTER the STRAIT GATE and you MUST WALK THE NARROW WAY to find Him, MEET WITH HIM, SPEAK WITH HIM and when you do, you and He will sup together and if you OPEN THE DOOR, He and You will be together for all eternity and you will be written in His Book, as He is the ONLY ONE that can give you ETERNAL LIFE.
These are they that have passed from DEATH to LIFE, and they cannot come into condemnation. What condemnation? There is only one, only ONE issue between man and God. ONLY ONE, found in John 3:19-21:
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
What is this LIGHT? John tells us:
1 John 3
3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
The LIGHT is the light of DIVINE AGAPE LOVE, THE TRUTH BEHIND EVERYTHING THERE IS. Divine Agape Love is the power behind the entire Universe, it is the ULTIMATE SECRET behind all life, all there was, all there is, all that ever will be. God is a SPIRIT, and God is DIVINE AGAPE. We are to search out Christ, we are to FIND HIM, and ACCEPT HIS OFFER OF ETERNAL LIFE.
The human race LOST DIVINE AGAPE AT THE FALL. We do not have it within us. We do not know what it is, it is beyond human comprehension. We cannot LOVE as God commands, hence we are LOST. Jesus came to show us the WAY BACK. He called it a STRAIT GATE and a NARROW WAY. Divine Agape cannot be found any other way. We are destitute and lost forever without it.
The day is far spent and the night soon comes. Millions of Christians who believed the fakes out there will pay an awful price for refusing the commands of Jesus Christ to “enter ye in.” All of this is nothing but a refusal to pick up their own cross as Jesus Christ commanded, and a refusal to seek out and find Jesus Christ. It was all refused. It ends up in eternal ruin.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
