imgres31Today as vessels chosen by God, we are at a crisis point in our lives as Christ second coming in our life becomes more of a reality than ever before. Matt. 7:13-14 (AMP) speaks to the heart of a crossroad at this point of our life when it tells us to “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is the path that leads the way to [everlasting] life, and there are few who find it.”

My friends this is the point in our life where the line between perdition and salvation is so blurred. And not because we don’t understand the difference between; right and wrong, good and evil, death and destruction, black and white. But it is blurred because “our affection are not on things above, but they are on things on this earth.” Colossians 3:2 (KJV) So now that it is personal, let’s focus on asking ourselves, are we living a life, conducive to someone who really has a desire for life eternal?

When Christ said “I will go and prepare a place for you, and I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” John 14:3tobey-knock-at-the-door (NKJV) The part of that text that says and I will come back, did it ever occur to us it could actually be in our life time? So now that takes you and I to a crossroad and the decision we make, will determine our eternal destiny.

But my friends God loves us, so He allows us the choice to choose our on destination. But His promise if we decide to go all the way with Him is, “we are of God, and we are His little children,” who [will be given the power to] overcome the world: “because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”1 John 4:4 (KJV) Christ also tells us “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live.” John 11:25 (KJV)

Satan Tempts JesusChrist also knows if we believe, while understanding what was done for our salvation, then daily we will cry out, “Lord not my will but thy will be done.” But, we have choices. So Satan also makes a dramatic presentation, telling us, “all these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.” Matt. 4:9 (KJV) So today as we stand at a crossroad there are two signs, one pointing to our Savior Jesus Christ and life eternal.

And the other towards a path bound for perdition. The choice is ours. God’s Spirit will not force us to choose life over death but the word of God is a mirror into our lives and as we look into that mirror we realize how far short we have fallen from the glory and purity of God and of the high standard set for us by Christ so now we must ask ourselves;

“When we reach that final sunset and we look into His eyes, will the tears we shed be tears of joy or would they be our last goodbye.” My friends it will be a tragedy to get to that day that we waited for all our life, and realize that all we had accumulated and accomplished on this earth “could not compare to eternal life.” That we have now lost.







  1. This really explains the real situation we are in as far as our salvation is concerned.
