Why Did Jesus COMMAND We Walk the Narrow Way? PART ONE
There is a valid reason why Jesus commanded His people to “enter in” and walk the narrow way unto life. He also said that if we heard those Words (commands), and did not do them, we would be “foolish” and when judgment came, we would fall and go into eternal ruin.
So WHAT WAS THE REASON behind it all? Could it be the way humanity is constructed? Did our Creator give us some clues to all of this through the layout of the Tabernacle and Temple of the Old Testament? Could that be the reason that we are called a Temple?
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
This is but one of many and we need to look at the much deeper meaning behind these statements for the hidden meaning behind this. The temple layout tells us the real story behind why millions of Christians are sent away by Jesus Christ because they are NOT BORN AGAIN and remain unregenerate.
The Bible tells us there are TWO HEARTS within us. One is conscious and we are all aware of it for via that consciousness we live in our world. It is here we do our mental/mind work, live, work, make our decisions and it is here that we CONVERT. It in some way works with the unconscious mind that is veiled or hidden from our conscious mind.
We hear the gospel call, we “decide” with our conscious mind that the message is TRUE, and we decide to embrace Christ, and thus we are “converted” to Christianity. It is called CONVERSION. We then find a church, attend the services and attend to our religious duties, depending upon what our “denomination” requires of us.
The other heart, called the HIDDEN MAN, is a much deeper “entity” that actually rules a much deeper part of us that most people are never aware of, for it is beyond our conscious mind, beyond even our unconscious mind and lies DEEP WITHIN EACH ONE OF US:
5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow
3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
If something is HIDDEN, then it is NOT KNOWN, it is concealed, a secret. This is important because Jeremiah tells us this HIDDEN, SECRET HEART is WICKED, EVIL and in fact SO EVIL that you CANNOT KNOW IT. It is here, in this INNER UNKNOWABLE HEART that God deals with in the act of REGENERATION. This is why so few ever get regenerated.
OUTER COURT CONSCIOUS MIND = CONVERSION = “Sinner’s Prayer”
The vast majority stay in the OUTER COURT
INNER SECRET HEART = REGENERATION – NARROW WAY ONLY.
The FEW find the STRAIT GATE and NARROW WAY and make the incredible journey to their INNER SECRET HEART where Jesus reveals Himself and Regenerates the INNER HEART.
This inner secret INNER HIDDEN MAN OF THE HEART can only be reached via the NARROW WAY, and ONLY GOD THE FATHER HAS THE POWER TO DRAG A BELIEVER THROUGH IT.
8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
9The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10 I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
This INNER HIDDEN HEART is where the ANTICHRIST SPIRIT sits upon his throne of glory and resides there during one’s entire life UNLESS and UNTIL it is UNSEATED AT “REGENERATION.” More on that later. This INNER SECRET PLACE IS WHERE THE “PORTAL” OR “GATE” THAT JESUS IS KNOCKING ON AND WHERE WE WILL HEAR HIS VOICE AND HE WILL CALL US BY NAME AS JOHN 10 SAYS.
So what has all of this got to do with the TEMPLE, WHICH WE ARE?
There are three main areas of the TEMPLE and how they relate to how the Lord constructed us:
- THE OUTER COURT = OUR CONSCIOUS MIND
- THE HOLY PLACE OR “INNER COURT” = OUR UNCONSCIOUS MIND
- THE HOLY OF HOLIES = THE HIDDEN SECRET MAN
It is in the OUTER COURT that all religious duties took place. In our day it is called “CHURCH.” It is the OUTER COURT and the “Sinner’s Prayer” fake salvation are promoted as “salvation.”
It is in the Church that we gather to sing our hymns, pray, have fellowship, listen to the teachers, preachers and evangelists. Here we put our money in the plate and perform our “duties.” IT IS ALL OUTER COURT.
7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
How is this possible? Why would Jesus make such a terrible statement to “religious folks?” The answer is their HIDDEN MAN OF THE HEART remains TOTALLY ALOOF AND APART FROM the conscious minds activities, especially all “religious activities.” It is, in essence, DETACHED and HIDDEN, ISOLATED, a secret inner WICKED ANTICHRIST “ENTITY” because of the FALL. It was veiled from our conscious minds at the FALL. Unless one does exactly what Christ commanded us, we will never KNOW or REALIZE that the REAL HEART was even there, much less HOW WICKED IT IS. True regeneration, true rebirth or “quickening” takes place in this HIDDEN MAN OF THE HEART.
Do you remember where Jesus told us through John that the Holy Spirit was to LEAD US TO THE TRUTH, WHO IS JESUS CHRIST? Where John said that the Holy Spirit was to CONVICT US OF SIN, RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND JUDGMENT? Remember where he said that you have no need for any man to teach you, that the Holy Spirit would guide us through the INNER COURT, THE HOLY PLACE? He said that because if you ENTER THE STRAIT GATE, you are leaving the OUTER COURT BEHIND and moving through the veil that separates the OUTER COURT from the INNER COURT.
You are moving into a place where ONLY THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN GUIDE YOU, for it is all INNER COURT ACTIVITY, an area only lit up by the SEVEN LAMPS. This is where you ASK, SEEK, KNOCK, STRIVE, LABOR and CONTINUE in the Doctrines of Christ, for ONLY YOU are involved and no one can really help you, they can only ENCOURAGE YOU to “continue on.” It is now between you and God’s Holy Spirit.
The church “controllers” don’t want you to realize or see any of this, for if you find it out, they lose control over you and you begin to realize they are deceived liars and “wolves in sheep’s clothing”. Our preachers, teachers and evangelists are our modern-day Pharisees and Sadducees.
Almost all that passes for SALVATION today is a hoax, it is all OUTER COURT CONSCIOUS MIND ACTIVITY. The sinner’s prayer, the ABC’s of salvation are ALL OUTER COURT CONSCIOUS MIND ACTIVITY. That is why Jesus Christ sends them away by the millions – they all remained in the OUTER COURT, thought they were SAVED because they believed the fake preachers, teachers, evangelists and prophetic ministries SINNER’S PRAYER GETS YOU THE TICKET TO HELL and NOT HEAVEN!
Jesus warned about this in Revelation 3:16-22 about the last days UNSAVED Church:
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.
It is a horrible hoax, a massive deception warned about by CHRIST, PAUL, PETER and JOHN, all of course the Words of Christ. It is your choice and your free will as to what you do about this. My advice? DO AS JESUS COMMANDED POST HASTE FOR YOU TIME IS VERY SHORT.
