The Narrow gate and the Mark of the Beast. 1
There is a well know verse in the Bible, but it is not the type of verse or scripture that’s popular in Church hence, it is hardly mentioned in most Churches today.
If a person belongs to a real church, then the heart of the Minister should be to warn the congregation of the time we are in and to be careful in their Christian walk.
Apostle Paul is a good example, He was a real servant of the Lord, He saw into the spirit realm, and the Holy Spirit revealed things to him.
He also knew the battle the Church faced then and even now, therefore his love for body of Christ, and the potential pitfall that could face a Christian, made him warn the body in every opportunity he had, but come to think of it, it wasn’t really him but the Holy Spirit telling him to warn the Church.
An Example would be in his letter to Timothy – Timothy 4:1-3 Amplified Bible.
4 However, the [Holy] Spirit distinctly and expressly declares that in latter times some will turn away from the faith, giving attention to deluding and seducing spirits and doctrines that demons teach.
Jesus said in Matthew 7
13 “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. 14 [c]Because narrow is the gate and [d]difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it…
Jesus was talking to His inner circle, which is a form of His Church what we call the body of Christ.
The absence of warning in a Church about these last days, then what followed the above verse could apply to the Church such gathering. The verse is 15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
This message is for the Church not the world, 1 Peter 4:17 Amplified Bible,
17 For the time [has arrived] for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us.
There is a danger out there that some people in some Churches are not saved, because if a person is saved and washed in the blood of Jesus, then they would not have to throw up the devil’s sign that they have to, because they are part of the click.
Jesus has said the gate is narrow, if your church is not preaching about the narrow gate, then I think you as a person need to seek God, and ask Him to open your eyes.
The same Holy Spirit that revealed, things about the Church to Apostle Paul is doing the same today.
Is your Church leading to through the narrow gate or broad gate?
Now, this leads me to the next question ,
What is the Mark of the Beast?
To be continued.
Remember Jesus Christ is the Light & Saviour of the World.
Until Next time, keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
Peace. Daniel – The Christian Activist.
