Broad is the Way to Destruction, Narrow is the Gate Into Life
Envision a President of a country doing an analysis of the property being bought and gathering information on the population within the country he rules. He discovers that a specific population of people were buying up all the houses and combining their property together to make themselves more powerful than even the President of that country! Even though the Constitution of the President’s country calls for judgment and righteousness, instead he discovered there was oppression of and crying from the people. Those violating the Constitution of the Country, buying all the homes, and buying all the real estate were also violating the inalienable rights of the honorable citizens. In the eyes of the Living God, the great numbers of people who ban together in the kingdom of this world is meaningless. For broad is the way of destruction but narrow is the gate to Life.
Those possessing great wealth, those owning much property, and those who own many houses are destined for destruction when they abandon the Living God in favor of the broad ways of the kingdom of this world! “Enter you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.” For the sake of those being oppressed and persecuted, the Living God would cause many houses to be desolate, from mansions to one room apartments, without inhabitants. The land would not produce enough crops to feed the mighty of the kingdom of the world.
Since the Garden of Eden, mankind has perpetually attempted to rebuild the Garden of Eden. They do so with the knowledge of good and evil that is rooted in the darkness of the kingdom of this world. Unredeemed mankind believes that they can be gods, or be like the Living God through worldly dominance, amassing worldly wealth, and accumulating the property and resources of this world. They consider themselves to be good while oppressing and persecuting the evil that opposes their worldly quest for power. It is all rooted in the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life within the most educated, powerful, and influential places of this dark and evil world. Broad is the road to destruction but narrow is the gate into life.
It was actually Israel who was amassing the homes and fields to monopolize the resources of the earth while oppressing and persecuting their enemies. However, they violated and disobeyed the Constitution of their Country, that President being the Living God. They lost it all…they lost their inhabitants and they lost the source of their food. Let it also be said, God is merciful, for it is the nation of Israel that stands today while the Roman Empire remains in ruins! “Enter you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.”
From the Kingdom of God is given us the only proper material for building within the kingdom of this world. That material comes in the form of the Cross upon which Christ died so that we can become citizens of the New Jerusalem. Anything of eternal value will be built according to what Christ has done for us on the Cross. As Christ abides in us, Righteousness and Judgment prevails with oppression and persecution becoming dormant and inactive. In God’s house are many mansions, we will eat bountifully in the Kingdom of God, and the fields will always bring forth our daily Bread.
We enter into the Kingdom of God through the Cross of Christ, that is the narrow gate, but we are set apart from the broad way of destruction within the kingdom of this world. The kingdom of this world ignores the remission of sin, the resurrection of the spirit by the Spirit of the living God, and the infilling of the Holy Ghost. They reject the Chief Cornerstone, which is Christ Jesus. The kingdom of this world is infested with the presence of Satan; his way is to steal, kill, and destroy which translates into oppression and persecution of the Children of God, those born by what Christ did for us on the Cross. Jesus is coming soon! Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Christ Jesus is lord!
“For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry. Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth! In mine ears said the Lord of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant. Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah. Isaiah 5:7-10
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.” Matthew 7:13
