The Narrow Gate, And The Narrow Path.

Enter You In At The Narrow Gate:

Enter you in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because narrow is the gate, and narrow is the way which leads unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7 v 12 -13 )

There are several important truths that every single believer in Jesus Christ needs to gain a revelation of when examining these words spoken by Jesus Christ. 

It is of vital importance to understand that Jesus is not offering to humanity an option; Jesus is laying down the command to the people gathered around Him that there is only one point of entry into the Kingdom of God, and that is through a narrow gate.

Jesus Christ Is The Exclusive Door.

Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before Me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by Me, if any man enters in, he shall be saved and shall go in and out, and find pasture.  ( John 10 v 7-9 )

Entering through the narrow gate is going only through Jesus Christ, who is the door to life. Jesus is not a door, but THE DOOR, Jesus Christ, is the exclusive entry into the presence of the Father.

Jesus said unto him. I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man comes unto the Father but by Me. ( John 14 v 6.)

The Danger Of A Half Truth.

Quite some time ago, I received a Word of the Lord concerning the narrow gate, and the narrow path I would like to share this Word.

“Jesus Christ is the narrow gate; the church will readily proclaim this truth. the church, the body of Christ will make much of the mention of this fact, but to preach Jesus Christ as the narrow gate, is only presenting half-truth, the Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaims the essential requirement of the narrow gate and a narrow way.”

Enter you in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because narrow is the gate, and narrow is the way which leads unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7 v 12 -13 )

Entering the narrow gate, which is coming into a living relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and progressing in His way leads to life, there are no shortcuts. The narrow gate and walking on the narrow way leads unto life, you cannot disannul the requirement of the narrow path from the narrow gate, but sadly this is not popular preaching to the average believer today.

The message spawned from many ministers today is just preaching the narrow gate but leaving out the need to walk on the narrow path,  the true Gospel of Jesus Christ must be rediscovered, it’s only through the narrow gate and continuingly walking on the narrow path that one can enter into life.

The Consequence of Failing To Enter The Narrow Gate.

Jesus Christ’s demand on man to enter through Himself as the narrow gate, and to walk His narrow path is the only way into life, both for today and eternity. Refusal to heed the demands of Jesus Christ will result in a person staying in a dead state of existence both in this life and for eternity.

The Question That Needs To Be Answered: Are You One Of The Few Or One Of The Many? 

Enter you in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because narrow is the gate, and narrow is the way which leads unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7 v 12 -13 )
