Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Many believers in Jesus Christ are on a road that will eventually lead them to Hell. These professing followers of Jesus Christ are unaware and have deceived themselves into believing that they are okay in their relationship with the Lord.

They make excuses for their sins. They make excuses as to why they don’t have to live a life that is a living sacrifice to the Lord. They will continue to claim to God’s promises and covenants but will not evaluate their own lives to see if their will lines up with scripture.

The deception of compromise in the House of God has caused His presence to cease. The unbelief of His power has restricted the Holy Ghost from moving in our lives, and week after week the congregations return to the church obedient to a religion and disobedient to their God.

They are content without the presence of God moving in their lives. They are asleep to the reality of the Lords soon return, and His impending judgment that is underway, while millions continue to enter into that wide gate that leads to destruction. Many are the lost souls that are under the bondage of sin. Addiction, infirmities, and death to mankind isn’t even enough to cause a stirring in the hard hearts of the modern day believer.

James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Luke 12:47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

Everyday is a new day to reach out to the lost but yet we continue to ignore the cries from hell. We know the outcome of all things but refuse to open our eyes and our hearts to the reality of the truth. We will continue in our slothfulness towards repentance, and picking up our cross, and following Jesus.

Just look at the headlines! Persecution, fear, murder, terrorism, abortion, fornication, adultery, molestation, suicide, and addiction. All this because of our refusal of the truth.

Matthew 7:21-27

21 ¶ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24¶ Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

You may think that you have entered into the narrow gate that leads to life, and you may have! But for many of you either you have never entered into that narrow way or you may have wandered of that narrow way and found a new way that is a much easier path that is filled with excuses for your sin and reasons to continue therein, but I warn you of this false security of never being at odds with the Lord or eternally separated from Him through your sins.

Psalms 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

John 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

Many are on an alternate route to Hell and I can explain it like this: Many highways have an outer road that runs parallel along the highway. Many choose this outer road to avoid traffic congestion on the highways. Although they might not get you to your destination as fast as the highway, and you might be able to avoid some things, these roads ultimately lead to the same destination.

The believer who denies to pick up their cross and follow Jesus Christ, and to lie down the ways of the world can attend church every time the doors are open. They can sing in the choir or on the worship team. They can be an elected official on the church board or even be the preacher.

If you refuse to hear the truth and to continue to forsake the conviction of the Holy Ghost, and walk through the narrow gate and make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life, then you will find in the end as you stand before the Lord in the judgment that you have not been on the road that leads to life, but on the alternate road that leads to Hell.

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
