Enter by the wicket gate

If anyone wants someone to pray for them email me at: paulhtrask@gmail.com

As many of you have thought I do think of my future in glory.   I have noticed for many years heaven is mentioned in only a couple places in the Bible.   However, their many references to the resurrection when our souls are reunite with a now perfect body.   In the Lord’s pray he says “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” This is our request for God to bring heaven onto a renewed earth (Read Isaiah 35).  As Drew mention this past Sunday the physical realm is important to God that is why there will be a resurrection.  If you want to be resurrected unto life listen to the Evangelist and the pilgrim discuss his eternal state:

Evangelist asked, “Why are you not willing to die, since this life is so full of evil?  The man answered, “I fear this burden on my back will sink me to hell.  I am not ready to go to judgment.”

“Why then are standing still?”

“I don’t know where to go!”

“Read this.” Evangelist gave him a roll of parchment that said, “Fly from the wrath to come.”

Evangelist pointed beyond a wide plain.  “Do you see the distant wicket gate?”  “No.”   “Do you see the distant shining light?”  “I think I do.”

So the man began to run.  Seeing him, his wife and children cried after him to return.  But the man put his fingers in ears and ran on, crying “Life!, Life! Eternal life!”   (The wicket gate is conversion where you meet for the first time our resurrected Lord Jesus who takes away our sins and gives you his righteousness.)

Jesus says, ” Enter by the narrow gate.  For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.  For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” Matthew 7:13-14

If you want to walk on the Way of Holiness to come to Zion and receive you eternal rest you must come to Jesus Christ and ask him to forgive your sins and recue you.  He will.   There is no other name by which men can be saved!

    Something I once read of Keller’s:

    If I have hope like that–not just for a slightly stronger city, but for a literal new creation–then I can face anything. In The Lord of the Rings, one character is facing terrible evil, and suddenly he looks at a star in the sky. “Like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach. His song in the Tower had been defiance rather than hope; for then he was thinking of himself. Now for a moment his own fate…ceased to trouble him…putting away all fear…”

    I bless the wicket gate and the One who compelled me “come!” I praise Him for the grace that both thoroughly saves AND keeps, forver and ever and ever: through many dangers, toils and snares.

    Ebenezer!
