The Narrow Gate

Dear beloved: One of the pastors who preached at the conference in Mumias, Kenya, relayed this testimony to me about a lady from Spain who had been in a car accident and was in a coma, hovering near death for 48hrs. As she was near death's door, she was taken up in the spirit by the Lord for a visitation to heaven. (See Paul's account of his visitation to heaven in 2 Corinthians 12:1-9) While there in heaven, she met Jesus and He told her it was not her time to stay in heaven, that He was going to send her back to her life on earth with a message. She was to share the message with everyone she came in contact with, and the message is this: Jesus said "only 2 out of 100 people who are dying on earth right now are saved believers coming into heaven."

Matthew 7:13 "Enter by the narrow gate,for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. v14 For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, few are those who find it." It is truly remarkable to think about all the ways the gospel is being preached all over the world this day and age: through radio, television, internet, Bible tracts, Bible distribution, preaching on street corners and in magnificent churches, and yet with all of that, only two percent of the people are being saved. The narrow gate is certainly narrow!

Where do you stand with the Lord Jesus today? If this were to be your last day on earth today, would you be one of the two who would stand at the gate and hear the Lord say, "Well done my good and faithful servant, come in to heaven to enjoy the place I have prepared for you." Or would you be one of the ninety eight who would hear the Lord say, "Depart from me you worker of iniquity, for I never knew you." And you would be banished to eternal torment, separated from God for all eternity because of your pride and hardness of heart. Spend some time today on your knees before the Lord, make sure that you are right with Him, that you have confessed Him before men as your Lord and Savior. You will then have no fear of death, and when you stand before the Lord you can hear those precious words, "Come in!" God bless you, in Christ, Jim
