A Testimony of the True Narrow Way and Authentic Regeneration From a Remarkable Young Lady
[Excerpt From a LightGateBlogger Post — This is Not Your Typical "Testimony" — Do You See It?]
Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, (Luke 13:23)
Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. (Luke 13:24)
I wish now to present A COMMENT that we received from Erin, IN OUR BLOG NUMBER 22, who recently became another member of the BRIDE OF CHRIST by undergoing AUTHENTIC REBIRTH:
“Hello, I would like to say something on this, in regards to the pit, the narrow way, etc. Sorry this is a little long.
First, it is an open invitation to everyone on the planet. Jesus wants us to come, all of us, and this is why God’s patience is so long with us. Jesus came for sinners, the soul-sick, the worst, the dirty. It is a divine grace that God/Jesus/Spirit set this up for us, because this is the method of judgement used on a Christian, to go through here, instead of then, on that day. (Because he will not have you be in double jeopardy) However when we do take those steps, there is a process to be undergone. And, it is the faith and hope that we are given to carry us through to the end. Some people, may take a short time. Others like me, a long time. The objective? To find the truth, and to find why you need a savior. It is a painful, hurtful process. It actually kills you (inside). The narrow way is a stripping process. It strips away what you think you know, what you think is good, who you think you are. It shows you how black we are on the inside. It shows how we are law-breakers, and it also shows how it is our nature.
This is one of the things that hit me the biggest, to realize that sin was in my very blood, that I couldn’t stop it, that it was my very nature, and I was hostile to God. This will show us we should be judged, by law, to hell. I take this to be the pit, the lowest room. But then, Jesus steps in, and we find him on a mercy seat. And he wipes it all away, and shows you his love, and how much he loves you, then you understand what it is to need Jesus to save you, what it means that he redeems you- and you are brand new because then you KNOW it, because you have SEEN it.And when you see it, (and everyone’s experience is different) it’s not with your eyes, or ears out loud, in my case, but it is something spoken to you, something you see deeper then we naturally can. It’s hard to explain but it goes through your very soul and body. It is not an alter-call experience, like churches do. It’s you and him- and he is on the mercy seat, and you are at his feet.
This is all found in the Bible. Prov 25:14- “The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him, and he will show them his covenant.” (If you have a strongs concordance, look up secret, show, covenant)
John 10: 27- My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me
This is just a couple, but this process of redemption is found everywhere, both old and new testament. There are several scriptures where it tells us to wait. It doesn’t mean to just wait for his second coming, but to wait for him to come to you. And- when we by faith wait, because we know that he does what he promises, and he cannot lie, then at the appointed time, he WILL come, and you will know it, and it will set you free. Remember the story of Joseph in Genesis? He revealed himself to his brothers. Jesus reveals himself to us.
Stewart wrote a most helpful book about the narrow way (Darklight). I know it gets annoying when people tell you “go read such and such book” instead of the actual Bible, but something I would recommend to anyone interested is John Bunyan’s “The Law and Grace Unfolded”. (John Bunyan was the author of Pilgrims Progress, from the 1600′s). In the grace section, he explains what happens to a soul when they are drawn into the second covenant, of grace. Those going through, or have went through, can identify with the process. But Jesus wants us to come to Him. So if anyone sees this and doubts or fears, look for the truth, and he will show you. Then you have your foundation of the truth and love rightly laid.
This is what this ministry of Stewart’s is all about. It’s about telling people to read, investigate, look, search, seek, pray, for themselves- and then the Lord will carry you through.He doesn’t want anyone to “follow” him for his own self, although I do know he is a true preacher of the Lord, but he presents the truth of salvation for what it is. It’s not meant to try to make anyone feel like they have to be an elite status or anything- me of all people, does not fit that kind of criteria, but it is just to tell everyone “this is what the Bible says, this is what’s NOT being spoken about at church, here’s some directions in the Bible you might want to look at”- and when we obey what the Bible says, in searching and seeking, then he will show us. We can’t, by nature, obey the law, but we have to search the matter out. But the fact of the matter is, there are 2 groups of people, and every person will be in one group or the other. So he is warning us, and we are lucky to have it.
Thank you for your time of reading.
Be sure you are saved, and not just think you are. Do you have the right KIND of faith?
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: (Matt 7:13)
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matt 7:14)
→ Time is running out for mankind – even for the vast majority of Christians who think they are going to Heaven but are not – just as Jesus said. A DELUSION OF A SALVATION THAT DOES NOT EXIST.
→ The Bible is clear – only 1 in 1000 Christians is actually BORN AGAIN.
→ No Cross, No Death, No Judgment – No Crown of Eternal Life!!
→ The time is now getting so short to escape the Matrix, in truth!!
→ For more information, FREELY-download and study out (2Tim 2:15) while you can:
→ Learn to read your Bible FOR YOURSELF, and need not that any man teach you. (1John 2:27)
→ “It is the best book I have ever read outside of the word of God itself.”
→ “Other than my Bible, it’s the best thing I ever read.”
