While spending time in prayer with my family, YHWH began to strongly impress upon me the importance of staying on a narrow path. I’ll write down what I believe He said and let you determine whether or not it qualifies as a “prophetic word” for the ekklesia or not (1 Cor. 14:29), but regardless, I hope that you are encouraged to push forward.
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. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
We are called to take the path of the sanctified (set apart) ones. True followers of this path are those who are set apart for His purposes alone.
Show me Your ways, O LORD;
Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.
Followers of the Way do not have a fan base, and they are not moved by the glares of those who are perishing. Those with firm foundations are not moved with glory clouds and gold dust; they are moved only by His Word.
Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
You are Called to True Freedom
The harlot church is looking for new ways to be free, which sounds wonderful on the surface, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find that they really just want to indulge in their sin and cover it with cheap grace. Those of us who are truly set free become slaves to our King. We follow His Ways and bear holy (set apart) fruit.
But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of YHWH, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.
True lovers of the Most High can accept this saying without reservation, but those who pretend loyalty to the King cannot. They can’t comprehend or understand that WE ARE FREE . . . free to no longer obey sin; free to no longer fulfill the lusts of the flesh; free to no longer sow seeds of unrighteousness; free to obey Yah’s voice!
Free to Walk the Narrow Path.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
As we live our lives in obedience to His Word, it sheds light on the narrow path, clearing the Way before us and making our destination obvious.
While the world is falling headlong into destruction, you are going to see the path get narrower and narrower … and you will hear the call for a deeper sanctification grow stronger and stronger.
But walking in the light of His Word will make your destination clear.
But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
To the majority who are sitting on the fence (you know who you are), you are NOT in the Valley of Decision. You are perishing . . . TURN!
Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish.
Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.
May the heart of David break forth in all of us this year! May we all, with unveiled faces cry out:
Oh, how I love Your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
