ONE WAY.

When someone teaches that there are multiple ways to heaven as opposed to the one that Jesus speaks of: Himself, this is dangerous.


๐‡๐ž๐ซ๐ž ๐š๐ซ๐ž Three E๐ฑ๐š๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž๐ฌ...

1.) It's dangerous because it's a repeat of what the crafty (through means of deception) serpent did in The Garden of Eden back in ๐†๐ž๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ข๐ฌ ๐Ÿ‘. This cost Adam and Eve their position with God, their authority, and dominion over God's lesser creation. For the sake of justice, order, so Satan couldn't accuse Him of being unfair or showing favoritism (going against His Word), God had to expel Adam and Eve. Yes, their eyes were opened just as the serpent told them, but they were also introduced to witchcraft (disobedience, rebellion, open door that prolonged their life in hardship), instead of the life more abundantly that God had in mind for them even then.


2.) It's what Balaam did. ๐’๐ž๐ž ๐๐ฎ๐ฆ๐›๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ-๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’, ๐๐ฎ๐ฆ๐›๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ:๐Ÿ๐Ÿ”, ๐š๐ง๐ ๐‘๐ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ฅ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐Ÿ:๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’. He knew he couldn't curse what God blessed, so he gave instructions to tempt (entice, seduce, deceive) God's people into sinโ€”forcing the unavoidable consequences on them. It isn't God Who tempts anyone to destroy them, but there is one who does this job very well: Satan (๐‰๐š๐ฆ๐ž๐ฌ ๐Ÿ:๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘-๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“; J๐จ๐ก๐ง ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ:๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐›).


3.) It's what Jesus warns us against in ๐Œ๐š๐ญ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฐ ๐Ÿ•:๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘-๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’ and again in ๐‰๐จ๐ก๐ง ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ:๐Ÿ-๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ.


๐“๐ก๐ž๐ซ๐ž ๐ข๐ฌ O๐ง๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐Ž๐๐„ ๐—ช๐š๐ฒ...

Those who choose rebellion to God's way try to enter in through many other ways (gates). Jesus calls them thieves and robbers (๐‰๐จ๐ก๐ง ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ:๐Ÿ;๐Ÿ–). Can they successfully enter? Sure, but illegallyโ€”and when you have no legal right to have entered, your soul is in danger because of the fate you may meet through whatever gate you've illegally accessed. Again, this is called witchcraft. Going against God's natural order.


Jesus is the ONLY Way (๐‰๐จ๐ก๐ง ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’:๐Ÿ”).


As a Reminder...

Did Adam and Eve physically die right away? No, but grave consequences arose from their disobedience. The Israelites may have enjoyed the pleasures of sinning for a while (๐’๐ž๐ž ๐๐ฎ๐ฆ๐›๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ ๐จ๐ง๐ฐ๐š๐ซ๐), but these sins caught up with them. It cost them their physical lives when God sent judgement. โ€œWhat has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun (๐„๐œ๐œ๐ฅ. ๐Ÿ:๐Ÿ—).โ€


A Final Exhortation...

Let us then, learn of the Lord. This is OUR responsibility. He will teach us as we desire to learn about Him and His ways. ๐‰๐จ๐› ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–:๐Ÿ๐Ÿ– reminds us that to understand means to shun/depart from evil. It's time to get some understanding and this begins with the fear of the Lord: reverential regard (the beginning of wisdom) for Who He is: GOD ALMIGHTY. The same God Who has promised us all ๐‰๐ž๐ซ๐ž๐ฆ๐ข๐š๐ก ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ—:๐Ÿ๐Ÿ. Please, walk upright with Him.
