JESUS – THE DOORWAY TO YOUR FUTURE

What is your future?

Where is your future?

When is your future?

You have a future for your mortal life and a future for your eternal soul and spirit.

Your real future is not tied up in a job, or a retirement.  It is not tied up in investment port folios.  It is not tied up in hobbys, or trivial pursuits, games, sports, abilities, or skills.

Your future is tied up in what you believe.  If you believe in your own goodness and your own religion or lack of it – such as agnosticism, or atheism, then your future will be revealed to you in time, and you will find that what you had hoped for will not be what you receive.

If you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord, your Saviour, Your God, and your only hope and life, wether you have little or much, your future will be secure after this life on earth is over.  And it will be over for all one day.

Every future has a door, just as every building, every vehicle, plane, or ship has a door.

Every dwelling has a door – at least one.

Whether rich or poor, child or adult, king or servant, people go through a door to get into a room or house or building.

There is a the account of  a paralysed man who was carried about on a stretcher by four friends.  The house they wanted to get into was crowded, even to the door way, so they had no way of getting in to ask Jesus Christ of Nazareth to heal him.  So they got up on the roof, perhaps via a stairway, and tore off some of the tiles and made a hole large enough to lower their friend down with ropes onto the floor in front of Jesus.  No doubt people would have squeezed up closer to each other to make room for this most unusual entrance.  Jesus saw the faith of the four friends and healed the man.  God always rewards faith.  In this case, the men were motivated by love for their friend, and that is truly the kind of faith that Jesus is pleased with – faith bound up in love.

The paralysed man who was healed had a doorway of faith opened up to him.  That faith led him to Jesus Christ.

Without faith it is impoossible to please God. Those who came to God must believe that He is and the He is a rewarder of thsoe who diligently seek Him – Hebrews 11:6

Jesus Christ of Nazareth made an amazing statement about Himself.  He said that He is the Door!  He did not say – I  am a door, but THE Door! – which rather irritates a lot of people.  People want options.

I am the Door; if any man ented in he shall be saved – John 10:9

Usually the bigger the house one can have the more doors there are in it.  A building will have many doors.  But usually there is one or maybe two entrances to any building and one or two exits for people, and perhaps another or so for delivery purposes.

We are told in the New Jerusalem City of Heaven there are Twelve huge gates.  But there is only one way to get into Heaven.  That Way is jesus Christ.  He is the Door.

Every religion of man says that there are many ways to ‘god’…just like the saying that All roads lead to Rome.

But God who has made Heaven has made provision for only one entry – we must go through Jesus Christ.  There is no other way.

Be sure, very sure of your eternal future.

Every person wants a taste of heaven.  They even make things to eat with the word heaven or heavenly attached, or paradise.  They want the weather to be nice and just like paradise. The desire for Heaven is in the soul of every person.

Unless you call upon the name of Jesus Christ for Him to save you from sin, from hell, from satan, from guilt and shame, from eternal misery, you cannot be saved.  adn if your are not saved form sin , death and Hell

You must believe in Jesus Christ of Nazareth as the only Way to the Father in Heaven, the only Door to Heaven, the only Saviiour for mankind, the only Redeemer for your soul, and you must call upon the name that God has given to men to call upon..

For there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.

Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.  For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all who are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.  Acts 2:38, 39.

Read the Scriptures of the Holy Bible daily and walk in obedience to God.  Ask God – Jesus Christ, to reveal Himself to you.  Pray and forgive all who offend you, so that you may be forgiven by your Father in Heaven.  Prepare your life and heart to meet Jesus Christ.  Be filled with the love of God and His grace, and let Jesus Christ lead you in paths of righteousness and holiness to the only Future that is worth anything of lasting value. 

Jesus said…

…I go to prepare a Place (a Future) for you.  and if I go, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.  John 14

 

 

 

 

SCRIPTURES TO PONDER ON

…THINK ON THESE THINGS…

 

IN THE BEGINNING, GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.  GENESIS 1:1

 

AND THE LORD GOD FORMED MAN FROM THE DUST OF THE GROUND, AND BREATHED INTO HIS NOSTRILS THE BREATH OF LIFE, AND MAN BECAME A LIVING SOUL.  GENESIS 2:7

 

AND THE LORD GOD CAUSED A DEEP SLEEP TO FALL UPON ADAM, 

AND HE SLEPT, AND HE TOOK ONE OF HIS RIBS,

AND CLOSED UP THE FLESH INSTEAD THEREOF;

AND THE RIB,WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD TAKEN FROM MAN,

MADE HE A WOMAN, AND BROUGHT HER UNTO THE MAN.  

  AND ADAM SAID, THIS IS NOW BONE OF MY BONES,

AND FLESH OF MY FLESH; SHE SHALL BE CALLED WOMAN,

BECAUSE SHE WAS TAKEN OUT OF MAN.

THEREFORE SHALL A MAN LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER,

AND SHALL CLEAVE UNTO HIS WIFE:

AND THEY SHALL BE ONE FLESH. 

GENESIS 2:22-24

 

WHAT THEREFORE,

GOD HAS JOINED TOEGETHER,

LET NOT MAN PUT ASUNDER.  MARK 10:9

 

 

 

AND WHEN THE LORD SAW THAT HE TURNED ASIDE TO SEE, GOD CALLED UNTO HIM OUT OF THE MIDDLE OF THE BUSH, AND SAID, MOSES, MOSES.  AND HE SAID, HERE AM I.   AND HE SAID, DRAW NOT NEAR HERE, PUT OFF THE SHOES FROM YOUR FEET, FOR THE PLACE ON WHICH YOU STAND IS HOLY GORUND;

MOREOVER HE SAID, I AM THE GOD OF YOUR FATHER, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB.  AND MOSES HID HIS FACE; FOR HE WAS AFRAID TO LOOK UPON GOD.

AND THE LORD SAID, I HAVE SURELY SEEN THE AFFLICTION OF MY PEOPLE WHICH ARE IN EGYPT, AND HAVE HEARD THEIR CRY BY REASON OF THEIR TASKMASTERS; FOR I KNOW THEIR SORROWS;

AND I AM COME DOWN TO DELIVER THEM…    EXODUS 3:4-7

 

HOW BEAUTIFUL UPON THE MOUNTAINS

ARE THE FEET OF HIM THAT BRINGS GOOD NEWS,

THAT PUBLISHES PEACE;

THAT BRINGS GOOD  TIDINGS OF GOOD,

THAT PUBLISHES SALVATION; THAT SAYS UNTO ZION,

YOUR GOD REIGNS…

THE LORD HAS MADE BARE HIS HOLY ARM

IN THE EYES OF ALL THE NATIONS;

AND ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH

SHALL SEE THE SALVATION OF OUR GOD.

BEHOLD MY SERVANT SHALL DEAL PRUDENTLY,

HE SHALL BE EXALTED

AND EXTOLLED,

AND BE VERY HIGH.

AS MANY WERE ASTONISHED AT YOU;’

HIS VISAGE WAS SO MARRED  MORE THAN ANY MAN;

AND HIS FORM MORE THAN THE SONS OF MAN.

WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR REPORT?

AND TO WHOM IS THE ARM OF THE LORD REVEALED?

…THERE IS NO BEAUTY THAT WE SHOULD DESIRE HIM.

HE IS DESPISED AND REJECTED OF MEN;

A MAN OF SORROWS:

YET WE DID NOT

ESTEEM HIM STRICKEN,

SMITTEN OF GOD,

AND AFFLICTED.

BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR

TRANSGRESSIONS,

HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES:

THE CHASTISEMENT  OF OUR PEACE

WAS UPON HIM;

AND WITH HIS STRIPES

WE ARE HEALED.

ALL WE HAVE LIKE SHEEP

GONE ASTRAY;

WE HAVE TURNED EVERY ONE TO OUR OWN WAY;

AND THE LORD HAS LAID ON HIM

THE INIQUITY OF US ALL.

ISAIAH 52:10, 13, 14;  53:1-6

Dear friend, you may be a Jew, or a Muslim, or a Bhuddist, an Atheist, a pragmatist, or a football fan.  You may be a member of the Illuminati world wide, or a Rosicrusionist, or perhaps a plain commoner.  It doesn’t matter what name you go by, what society or club, or organization you belong to.  It doesn’t matter whether you are famous or not, important or not.  You are in great need of God.

But it does matter to God, the Almighty, the God who appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and who appeared to Moses, who YOU are. You do matter to Him very much.  He has seen your affliction, your inner turmoil, your anxiety, and fears, your guilt, your shame, your spiritual nakedness.  His eyes have been on you from the day you were conceived.  He knows that you cannot save yourself from your own enslavements, and your own prison house.  He knows how you have tried and cried to be free.  He knows the journey you have taken, and He weeps for you.  His compassion toward you is greater than that of any other.

The Almighty God, the God of all the spirits of men, has come down to deliver you.  He came and clothed Himself in a body of flesh like yours.  He became one of us.   And as one of us, He suffered at the hands of men inspired by the Devil and who were fueled by their own greed and hatred.  He was afflicted with your afflictions.  He was bruised and crushed with your bruisings and crushings.  He allowed His Father in Heaven to whip Him at the hand of men with your whippings.  Yes this Son of Man, was whipped for you, in your place.  He was disfigured more than any other man because you matter to Him.

He gave His all for you so that you may have His all – if you give Him your all.

He laid down His life for you so that you may take up His life in you – if you give Him your life.

He emptied Himself so that you may be filled with all His goodness and truth – if you empty yourself to Him.

God bared His arm for you so that you may not remain naked and ashamed before Him.

He calls you by your name, just as He called to Moses by name. 

He longs to call you “My son.”

He longs for you to reply “My Father”

Today if you will hear His voice…do not harden your heart as Israel did in the day they provoked the Lord to anger in the wilderness, and they perished in the filth of their own sins.  The Lord is gracious and full of tender mercies, and is ready to forgive.  He wants to bless you with all His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.

You believe in God.  Believe also in Jesus.  He is your Salvation.  Call upon Him today.  Put your trust in Him completely.  Don’t hang on to your sin.  For sin has a reward…eternal separation from God.  Give all your sin and sinfulness over to Jesus.  Cast it all upon Him.  Love Him. Read His Word and do it, and you will be blessed.  He wants you to open your heart and soul to Him, as He longs to open His to you.  He waits for you….

Blessed is the man who hears and does the words of Jesus Christ. Matthew 7:24, 25.

The end of the harvest is near….
