1. STRAIT GATE, NARROW WAY is the MYSTERY of two “DIMENSIONS” in one WORLD; one leads to DESTRUCTION, the other to EVERLASTING LIFE. The two DIMENSIONS are separated by the STRAIT GATE, as it is written: “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” (Matthew 7:13-14)
2. STRAIT GATE, NARROW WAY is the tortuous odyssey of PILGRIMS who must traverse two dimensions, in one world, to reach their heavenly destination. STRAIT GATE bestrides the two dimensions to keep out INTRUDERS but OPEN, to allow PILGRIMS into the COLONY of God on earth. The NARROW WAY runs through the COLONY and terminates in the Heavenly City, “…which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (Hebrews 11:10) Outside the STRAIT GATE, kingdoms of this world groan under tyranny of wickedness. Within the GATE, the COLONY of PILGRIMS are daily refreshed by the Lord to press forward on well-trodden OLD PATHS. OLD PATHS are memorials and landmarks of Patriarchs, Prophets and Apostles who went before and are now made perfect in Jesus Christ. We, likewise, long for the OLD PATHS, as the Bible says: “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS, where is the GOOD WAY, and WALK THEREIN, and ye shall find rest for your souls…” (Jeremiah 6:16) OLD PATHS make up the NARROW WAY, like a LADDER, having STEPS aligned in the direction of heaven. Jacob saw the LADDER in a dream, as it is written: “And he dreamed, and behold a LADDER SET UP ON THE EARTH, AND THE TOP OF IT REACHED TO HEAVEN: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And, behold, THE LORD STOOD ABOVE IT,…” (Genesis 28:12-13) The LADDER had its root on earth and God at the other end. The NARROW WAY is rooted in TIME at this end and ETERNITY at the other end. Now, God is HOLY and those that will ascend His LADDER must be made PERFECT in HOLINESS. For this reason, God gave us His Son, as both the PATTERN of our CONFORMITY and the NARROW WAY as our HIGHWAY to PERFECTION. As we daily ascend the LADDER, one step at a time, we are TRANSFORMED into the image and likeness of Jesus Christ by the Spirit of the Lord. Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he went through the STRAIT GATE, as it is written: “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; WALK BEFORE ME, AND BE THOU PERFECT” (Genesis 17:1) Abraham set his foot on the HIGHWAY OF PERFECTION via the blood of circumcision (Genesis 17:1-27) His pains and blood were symbols of the SORROWS and BLOOD of Jesus Christ on the Cross at Calvary. Whereas the TOKEN of circumcision barely opened the GATE to Abraham, BLOOD of Jesus Christ did much more; granting and access to ALL MEN. WHEREFORE, the GOSPEL of SALVATION preached in the name of Jesus Christ is the ONLY VALID INVITATION to the STRAIT GATE. If any man comes with a REPENTANT HEART, there is sufficient GRACE through FAITH in Jesus Christ to OPEN the GATE.
3. STRAIT GATE is the SPIRITUAL PORTAL separating kingdoms of this world from the Kingdom of God. The GATE is God MANIFEST in Jesus Christ, and thus says the Lord: “I AM THE DOOR: by me if any man enter in, HE SHALL BE SAVED, and shall go in and out, and find pasture” (John 10:9) Jesus Christ is the ONLY DOORWAY between man and God. Through Him and in Him ALONE, do we get to KNOW God and are RECONCILED to Him, as it is written: “…no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; NEITHER KNOWETH ANY MAN THE FATHER, SAVE THE SON, and he to whomsoever the SON WILL REVEAL HIM” (Matthew 11:27) The AUTHORITY to REVEAL God and the POWER to OPEN the GATE are of God in Christ Jesus. They are not derived in any form or delegated in any manner to any man, religion or angel. The GATE is SHUT against those who deny the REVELATION of Jesus Christ as God MANIFEST in FLESH and there is no ground of appeal either on earth or heaven. The Bible says: “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN FLESH, justified in the Spirit…” (1 Timothy 3:16) God was MANIFEST in FLESH to set the FOUNDATION of the STRAIT GATE in the BLOOD of Jesus Christ and FINISH it up in His RESURRECTION. The GATE is OPENED by GRACE through FAITH in Jesus Christ to save the worst offender. For avoidance of doubts, there is neither SALVATION nor RECONCILIATION with God outside the REVELATION of God in Jesus Christ. The Bible says: “And, having made PEACE through the BLOOD of his cross, BY HIM TO RECONCILE ALL THINGS UNTO HIMSELF; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven” (Colossians 1:20) I warn YOU to beware of those who sit at the GATES of religious organizations to sell INDULGENCES as proof of SALVATION. Do not be deceived by any means, STRAIT GATE IS NOT THE FRANCHISE OF ANY NATION OR RELIGION. And SALVATION is by GRACE through FAITH in Jesus Christ, ALONE, who gave His LIFE for us to remove the WALL of PARTITION between man and God. At the end, it will not really matter what men call YOU or what YOU call yourself, if you did not enter through STRAIT GATE, YOU are an INTERLOPER in the CHURCH. By all prophetic indices, the MARRIAGE SUPPER of the LAMB is at hand, when the Lord shall SIFT His CHURCH to separate WHEAT from CHAFF. He will not consult parish registers before THROWING OUT every man that entered His vineyard ILLEGALLY, as it is written: “And he saith unto him, FRIEND, HOW CAMEST THOU IN hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, BIND HIM HAND AND FOOT, and take him away, and CAST HIM INTO OUTER DARKNESS; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth any man” (Matthew 22:12-13) This parable speaks to every soul that professes to be SAVED in Christ. Let every man examine himself and certify His SALVATION with due diligence at the STRAIT GATE. If you are in doubt or have been duped by those who sell INDULGENCES, I invite YOU to approach the STRAIT GATE today in GODLY SORROW and receive GRACE for your SALVATION through FAITH in Jesus Christ, amen.
4. NARROW WAY is the PATH forged by the FOOTSTEPS of the Lord Jesus Christ on earth. It is the MYSTERY of ABUNDANT LIFE in a world where all FLESH is subject to DEATH. ABUNDANT LIFE is the PATH of VICTORY over DEATH, bought for us by the BLOOD of Jesus Christ, as it is written: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, and that they might have it MORE ABUNDANTLY” (John 10:10) The NARROW WAY is RESTRICTED and will not take two people walking abreast. All PILGRIMS FOLLOW the Lord in SINGLE FILE, putting our feet in His FOOTPRINTS, one at a time. The Bible says: “And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him DENY HIMSELF, and TAKE UP HIS CROSS , and FOLLOW ME” (Mark 8:34) To FOLLOW in His FOOTSTEPS demands that we WALK on TWO SURE LEGS to match His strides. The FIRST LEG requires every PILGRIM to “DENY HIMSELF”, meaning we must put aside all WORKS of the FLESH. The Lord is SPIRIT and no man by WALKING in the WORKS of the FLESH will ever see or WALK in His FOOTPRINTS. The WORKS of the FLESH are obstacles that mire our feet in cesspools of SIN and DEATH. The Bible says: “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: … THEY WHICH DO SUCH THIBGS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD” (Galatians 5:19-21) The WORKS of the FLESH are like preprogrammed apps loaded in every man born into this world. All glory to God, they are deleted from our DNA by the Spirit of the Lord, when we TOTALLY SUBMIT to Him and CRUCIFY the FLESH. When we do, we are renewed to NEWNESS OF LIFE, to LIVE and WALK in the Spirit of Christ. Crucifying the FLESH require SPIRITUAL VIGILANCE in readiness to put the FLESH under and “DIE DAILY” (1Corinthians 15:31) Every time we crucify the FLESH, we place our FIRST FOOT firmly in Christ’s FOOTPRINT, ready to take the SECOND STEP. The SECOND LEG demands that we “TAKE UP HIS CROSS”. The CROSS signify our commitment to FOLLOW the Christ’s FOOTSTEPS in ABSOLUTE OBEDIENCE. The Cross is our FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SUFFERING, as the Bible says: “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SUFFERING, being made conformable unto his death” (Philippians 3:10) Our “FELLOWSHIP” is not the suffering of sin, but of willingness to endure excruciating PERSECUTION and even DEATH to PREACH and LIVE the gospel of Jesus Christ. These are the TWO LEGS that propel us through the NARROW WAY to ETERNAL REST. If any man in the CHURCH is content to hobble along on ONE LEG or crawl with NO LEGS at all, he is in the WRONG WAY and deceives himself. The Bible says: “There is a WAY WHICH SEEMETH RIGHT unto a man, but the end thereof are the WAYS OF DEATH” (Proverbs 14:12) The WRONG WAY is the BROAD WAY and it seems so RIGHT and ATTRACTIVE to the FLESH but is indeed the HIGHWAY of DEATH. Are you on BROAD WAY? It does not really matter how far you have gone in the WRONG WAY, retrace your steps today. Return to the Lord while GRACE yet abound and escape from DEATH to EVERLASTING LIFE, amen
5. STRAIT GATE never stops calling men to REPENTANCE but FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT, because there is an IMPERSONATOR. The PRETENDER is the WIDE GATE, of which the Bible says: “…WIDE IS THE GATE, and BROAD IS THE WAY THAT LEADETH TO DESTRUCTION,” (Matthew 7:13) WIDE GATE, as the name suggest, is WIDE OPEN day and night to receive those who do not believe the TRUTH but rejoice in LIES and RELIGIOUS HYPOCRISY. Every RELIGION and or RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS that receives men, outside the REVELATION of God being manifest in Jesus Christ is WIDE GATE. The WIDE GATE is kept open by LIES and SATANIC MANIPULATION to lure multitudes to the WRONG WAY. If any man PRETENDS to know and worship God but did not enter through STRAIT GATE, he is marooned on BROAD WAY. The WRONG WAY is BROAD and accommodates every shade of religion and philosophy that denies the manifestation of God in FLESH. The Bible says: “And EVERY SPIRIT THAT CONFESSETH NOT THAT JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH IS NOT OF GOD: and this is that SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world” (1 John 4:3) BROAD WAY is a monstrous PRISON OF RELIGIOUS DELUSION run by the spirit of Antichrist to incarcerate men in fool’s paradise. Those who fill CHURCH pews and pulpits but do not know who God is are imprisoned in delusionary cells of fool’s paradise. Every time someone hears the TRUTH but choose to believe LIES, they fall under stronger doses of DELUSION, as it is written: “And for this cause GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned WHO BELIEVED NOT THE TRUTH, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12) Friends, the CHURCH AGE is gradually coming to an end and the Lord will appear suddenly to TRANSLATE the Elect. Now is the time to AWAKE out of the SLUMBER of STRONG DELUSION and run for your life from prisons of hypocrisy and false religion. The Bible says: “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and THAT YE RECEIVE NOT OF HER PLAGUES” (Revelation 18:4) I plead with your conscience to search the scriptures and see that these things are TRUE. If truly YOU know the TRUTH, allow the TRUTH to set you FREE from bondage to episcopal LIES and MANIPULATION (John 8:32) I pray and commend YOU to the GRACE of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is able to save and deliver you from the wrath of God, amen.
6. If you are not sure where YOU stand in all these, I counsel YOU to come to the STRAIT GATE with a CONTRITE HEART and obtain MERCY for REPENTANCE and SALVATION in the Lord Jesus Christ, amen
