I am the Door
Jesus said I am the Door and this is where I wanted to get to in my last post but forgot. John 10 v 9
I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.
Find Pasture is also Jesus, cause Jesus said today you will be will me in Paradise to the robber on the cross, seconds to death and the robber says “remember me”, and he is saved.
There are different situations that Jesus saves people, some like that, some who call on His name, some as we seen are whosover is baptised in my name shall be saved and so on. However If you have heard the FULL gospel of John 3, Mark 16, Acts 2 Romans 8 v16 and others, and then believe not and “Believe” here means trust and obey, then it is questionable when is one saved? If you hear all that and number of times over your life and you do nothing then are you saved?
What about if your good and love people and do nothing, are you saved? Well No: Because good works or loving people without obeying God or Jesus, is not worth anything: Ephesians 2 v 9 ESV
not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
So you see you are saved by Grace Ephesians 2 v 8 ESV
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
So Works done after one is obedient in the name of God then that is different, but works done, not in faith, then grace is not present to salvation.
So back to the Story, I am fighting my Step Father who was a nice man actually, very nice, kind and gentle, and we are at the door of the Scout hall, I have just fighted for 500 metres down the road and we are at the door! There was no way I was going through that door of that Scout Hall. That meant entry and that meant I had to do what Mum and He wanted. I.e. my two biggest friends in life, wanted something good for me, and I did not want it. So I am at the door, Hands and feet at the posts and they are struggling to get me in, I wasn’t that strong at 12 but I was strong enough to made it hard. And hard I made it, when a boy comes over after hearing the commotion, my really old friend now, says come in I will look after you, show you what to do and so on. I gave in.
It works out for me to be the best thing in my life, There was a Australia Bush Camp 30kilometres from the Town and it was excellent, fitted with very good 20 foot long drops, it was in the Hills 5 k off the road so unless you know its there, you drive right on by as the entry from the highway is almost not distinguishable from the next bit of bush. It was very save and I loved it out there, even went there a few times when I was in 20’s and thirties. Went overseas as well. It was just great, and why did I get to do all the stuff, because
I WENT THROUGH THE DOOR
People who go through the door JESUS get all the good stuff, no door, no pass, no entry, Hell is the other option. like most I have been through the HELL of life there is no way I want to go through the HELL of Eternity as well.
So here we are with my friend, I love my Friend, He has been more of a friend to me that I could ever be to him, but as in 34 years ago I have shown him the DOOR of JESUS, and he was annoyed I went down that path, but that path, showing someone the DOOR is the utmost LOVE someone can have for His or Her friend.
I know he was brought up Roman Catholic, He was no doubt baptised as a child (sprinkled) which is NOT in the Bible, He was an Alter boy, also which is NOT in the Bible, he was then confirmed with no SIGN of the Holy Spirit, which is also NOT in the Bible.
God when Jesus dies ripped the vial of the Temple, there is no Physical Alter, in FACT the ALTER is where the Fire is and that is the HOLY GHOST the HOLY SPIRIT Acts 2 v 2- 4 Catholic Bible
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them:
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak.
So you see the Alter is the HOLY SPIRIT who as in the OLD TESTAMENT BURNS the Sacrifice, this being BURNING the CRAP of SIN one has in their body that keeps them separate from GOD, and along comes the ALTER enters ones body on INVITE and They speak in Tongues as Evidence of this, and He the HOLY SPIRIT burns the spiritual crap and joins with that person who had just at that instant in time BECOME the TEMPLE of GOD!
Hence the way the Roman Catholic and other churches do it, is NOT in the bible! Cannot beat the individual presence of the HOLY SPIRIT in ones own body! back to the Story. Here is He is kicking, punching, if you will, swaying, avoiding, with his hands and feet against the posts of the DOOR JESUS and he WILL NOT come in the Way that JESUS is Asking Calling him too come in. i.e he will not come in via The way the Roman Catholic Bible Says to do it!
I have said come in I will look after you, I will care for you, encourage, be there for you, to the best I could but letting Jesus and the Holy Spirit do the work. To this day my friend has not trusted me, He has rather and this is very understandable trusted his up bringing, The Roman Catholic different way of Salvation to the WAY the ROMAN CATHOLIC bible says to be saved, which brings us to this scripture Matthew 22 v 9 – 12 Catholic bible
9 Go ye therefore into the highways; and as many as you shall find, call to the marriage.
10 And his servants going forth into the ways, gathered together all that they found, both bad and good: and the marriage was filled with guests.
11 And the king went in to see the guests: and he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment.
12 And he saith to him: Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? But he was silent.
13 Then the king said to the waiters: Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
I want my friend to have the right wedding garments on, but he is still outside the door, kicking and screaming like I was with scouts, for 34 years now he has missed the blessings he could have had. I pray he comes in out of the cold before its to late, He has been told the word for the last time, unless God sends another to him, but if he does not believe his Friend of 34 years ago would my friend be open to listen to a stranger? Maybe.
Its just a simple door, Knock and Jesus Answers. My friend was depressed before I sent him that Email – He remember us email, I did not know, I had no Idea, but the other night He told me I have been as it were a breath of fresh air in his life. I like to say it is not me but JESUS has been that breath of fresh Air, as Jesus knew where he was in life and Jesus knows its only 10 days to destruction and what is to say my friend makes it, chances are not good for most Australians.
My friend may not make it through alive to the other side of September 2015 and may well be wearing the wrong garments. He has been called at least twice now, but he has refused to come in the DOOR of JESUS, even though I have given him the advice that he once gave me, Come in, it will be alright, I will look after you, and The Holy Spirit will be a closer friend with Jesus than I can be but I will do my best for you my friend. But he has refused, to enter the DOOR. He may only have 10 days left.
If your not saved and you are reading this on or before the 23rd of September 2015 you have hours left to get the right garments on. Enter YE at the Door of the Straight Gate! Matthew 7 v 13
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:
13 Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat.
Can you refuse this man
How to be saved by Jesus
ITS A HELL OF A GAMBLE TRYING TO ENTER THE FEAST WITHOUT THE GARMENTS THAT JESUS THE DOOR ASKS ONE TO HAVE!
