Luke 13:29 (NKJV) They will come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and sit down in the kingdom of God.

The Lord Jesus Christ went through the cities and villages, teaching and journeying toward Jerusalem. And He was asked a question “Lord, are there few who are saved?” It is hard to determined why someone asked this question. Perhaps it was sincere or it was asked to trap the Lord. The authenticity and authority of Christ drew multitudes of followers, but they soon discovered that it cost to follow Him. For this reason, there was a high turnover rate of followers, so to speak. People were coming and going all the time. As Jesus neared Jerusalem this last time, Jesus made it abundantly clear that it would cost to follow Him. And “They all forsook Him, and fled” (Mark 14:50 NKJV). This speculative question, “are there few who are saved?” is asked by many today. And Jesus’ answer is still the same today. Jesus commands you directly to “Make sure you are saved.” Instead of worrying about who is saved, make sure that you yourself will enter through the narrow gate. If everyone would do this, then many will be saved, both Jews and Gentiles. We ought to be born again by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. For salvation comes by Christ alone through faith alone, by faith alone. The sad thing is that many will seek to enter the narrow gate, that is many will seek salvation, but will not enter, they will refuse to accept the Lord Jesus Christ. And once the door of grace is shut, they who refused Christ will not be able to enter into His kingdom. For it will be too late. God’s grace is being offered now to all who will believe in His Son Jesus Christ. Don’t wait, open up the door to your heart and life and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior today. For the day of grace in which we live will one day come to an end. God will rise up and shut the door to His kingdom. And all those who are outside will not be permitted in, because Christ never knew them. No matter how loudly they protest, saying that they lived on intimate terms with Him. The Lord Jesus Christ will not be moved by these empty pretensions. Because they were workers of iniquity, and they will not be allowed to enter His kingdom. They will be filled first with remorse, then their evil hearts will be fully displayed in their violent hatred of God. For you see, not even hell can change the heart of the wicked. And many Jews who thought that they could enter into God’s kingdom by the fact that they are sons of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, will be trust out. Many Jews who were first in God’s plan for blessing will be rejected. And many Gentiles who were second, will enjoy the blessings of Christ Millennial Kingdom. But, my friend, be sure you are saved.

God Bless and have a great day of God’s Word.
