APOSTASY

APOSTASY 4/19/2012 “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. The first three words of verse 13, “Enter ye in”, can also be rendered “there is only one way in”. Jesus makes the same declaration in John chapter 14 “…no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”John 14:6b.In both instances the words of our Lord Jesus are emphatic - resolute. The word “many” also carries a very significant meaning in the Greek. When Jesus speaks of “many” He’s speaking of multitudes, a massive number. After Jesus gives the admonition that all would do well to enter in through the strait gate, He then explains what happens when the strait gate is by-passed; destruction/damnation is the only alternative. Then in the next verse it seems He changes the subject a bit “Beware of false prophets,…

INTERDIMENSTIONAL TRAVEL

INTERDIMENSTIONAL TRAVEL 4/12/2012 “And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots.”2 Kings 6:15a. Elisha’s servant was horrified as he woke up one morning and found that he and his master were surrounded by a massive force of enemy troops, horses, and chariots. Try and put yourself in this servant’s shoes for a moment. You’ve risen early in the morning ready to busy yourself with that day’s chores. As you head out the door your eyes focus on thousands of enemy soldiers, you’re suddenly frozen in your steps. You somehow find the strength to go back in the house, close the door behind you, and begin frantically searching for the phone to call 911. We can assume that was this servant’s reaction to what he had just witnessed (minus the phone call to 911). The servant ran to his master’s quarters and being full of fear cried out “… Alas, my master! how shall we do?”2 Kings 6:15b. We don’t really realiz…

ALPHA AND OMEGA

ALPHA AND OMEGA 4/5/2012 “The Revelation of Jesus Christ…”Revelation 1:1a. Here in the very first verse of the book of Revelation we’re told whose revelation it is. The Geek word “apokalypsis” means a disclosure of truth. Jesus Himself is revealing the truth to us. Almost immediately he explains to the reader the truth of just exactly who He is. “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”Revelation 1:8. There are many scripture verses throughout the Bible which proclaim Jesus’ deity. Why then do so many of His professed followers dismiss the fact that He is God? For the most part, professing Christians have no problem with Jesus being the Son of God, but when the Son of God says He’s God Almighty (as the verse above plainly states) why is that so hard to believe? We are admonished over and over again to believe on the Son of God for everlasting life. “I and my Father are one”John 10:30. Jesus is not s…
