Take Heed to the Path You’re On
I will start this posting with a familiar scripture before I reveal the dream I had last night.
Mat 7:13 — Mat 7:14
The Narrow Way
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Most, if not all, Believers are familiar with the above passage of scripture from Jesus’ sermon on the mount.
With that said, I will begin describing my dream I had last night.
In the dream I found myself standing on the broad road, the one Jesus said leads to death, and remember feeling a sense of terror that I was on this road and not on the straight and narrow road which leads to eternal life.
However, although I was on this road I was standing and not walking upon it. In the dream I was standing with an open Bible and I saw people coming towards me carrying closed Bibles under their arms and walked right by me as if I did not exist. Some purposely walked right into me to try to knock me down but had no intention of listening to me. I can only infer from the dream that those carrying the closed Bibles were Christians who had left the straight and narrow path and had chosen the broad easy path. Being that I was standing facing them as they came towards me says to me that the Lord placed me directly in their path to hopefully cause them to repent and turn around. The fact that I felt terror at finding myself on the broad path meant that I was placed there,however, I could easily turn and follow the crowd into eternal destruction.
In the sermon on the mount the Lord says that the narrow way is hard to find and in addition difficult to walk upon.
As the days grow darker the temptation to compromise with the world will be greater and greater because the persecutions will become more prevalent. The hyper grace movement is evidence of this.
I will close with the following scripture from 2nd Corinthians.
2 Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.
