Who Has Reservations

Have you ever been told by someone before that we are all trying to get to the same God, but that we are just taking different paths to get there? Or that they believe there are many ways to God? Yesterday our Pastor showed us this analogy, and some clips from some interviews of people being interviewed on the streets and did they think that one religion was better than another. The majority of the people interviewed said no, that they felt like everyone was just taking different paths. This can be misleading to those who do not know the Truth.

While you may ask me how to get to NC, to where I live, I may give you directions to come one way, and then if you asked Rob, he may give you directions to come another way. But we are both trying to get you to the same destination.

While all people who believe in God may be trying to get to God, they may all take different paths to get there, but we will ALL end up at the throne of judgement. Then it will be determined who goes on from there. The word is very clear on this, that the only way to God the Father, is through His Son, Jesus.

2 Pet. 1 v 17-18....For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory; "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.....

John 14 v 6.....Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.".....

Rev. 20 v 11-12.....Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before GOD, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life, and the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.....

You see we will all come to the same end when we die, and the books of our lives will be opened up for judgement, showing our works, but works without Faith in the One who can bring us to the Father is useless, when the other book, the Book of Life, is opened and that is where we want to find our name. That is where we want to see that we have reservations for our final destination. If you do not have reservations you will not enter into the final place of peace with the Father, (Eternity) if your name is not recorded in the Book of Life.

We all need to check what paths we are following and make sure that we are on the one true path, the one that includes Jesus as our Savior, because that is the only way your name will be written in the Book of Life. You must accept Him as the only way to the Father. He is the Way, The Truth and The Light. AMEN!
