TWO DIFFERENT DESTINIES:- life and destruction!
” for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it…” Matt 7:13-14
There are only 2 destinies for all man – Heaven or Hell, Life or Destruction! The saddest part is that man is not from birth on his way to Life but to destruction!
No man coming into this world is naturaly a heaven-ward pilgrem, we must be made one!
Destruction is used here by the Lord Jesus to show the destiny of men on the broad road. Hell and destruction is real. “few there are” that finds life – Heaven! Heaven is a place just as Hell is a place. It is not a condition or state wherein someone comes. It is a real place of torture for them that die on the broad road.
Destruction is the end of a life lived in an easier chritsianity, in deception and of those who loves this world, sin, money, and themselves. It is a God forsaken place of torture, not only at the moment of death but for all
“And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Rev 14:11
Hell or destruction is not the grave but a conscious place of agony (Luke 16) – a prison house – that will be cast into the lake of fire at the Great Judgment:-
“And death and hell (prisonhouse) were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death…” The second death is to be eternally seperated from God IN the lake of fire!” Rev 20:14
Dont go there, repent and turn to Christ and “enter at the narrow gate”, lay down your life, your sin and this world and be clothed with Christ and be renewed daily by taking up your cross and follow Him all the way!
DO NOT die in your sin, repent and turn to Jesus Christ to save you and enter His blessed Life!
“Broad is the road that leads to death,
And thousands walk together there;
But wisdom shows a narrower path,
With here and there a traveler.”
