THE ONLY WAY TO ETERNAL LIFE

John 14:2 – 7 – “My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.  You know the way to the place where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.  If you really know me, you will know[a] my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

Jesus had told His disciples many times where He was going but they did not understand.  A number of times He said He was returning to His Father who had sent Him.  Most of us think in earthly terms but Jesus talked in spiritual terms.  Jesus said to the disciples: “You know where I am going.”  Thomas replied: “No I don’t, give us the directions.”  The answer seems simple enough.  If we want to live in eternity with Christ we must accept that He was the Son of God and that He is the “only” way.  Jesus tells us He was going to Heaven, from where He came, to prepare a place for each of His followers.  He taught us how to become a follower. He instructed us how we were to live and how others should be treated.

He finishes the Scripture by saying that if you want to meet the Father He can show you the way, because no one else can get you there.  There is a lot we do not know about eternity.  One thing we are told is that we need not feel unworthy or fear as Jesus is preparing the way for us.  Scripture also says that if we reject Christ we cannot enter God’s presence.  That means if you want God to answer your prayers, you must become a member of His family.

The world will tell us the way to Heaven is just too narrow.  However, it is wide enough to allow the whole world to follow if they would only accept Christ.  Instead the world tells us there are many ways to Heaven.  The great deceiver, Satan, will convince the world that he knows all of the ways to get there and if they will listen and follow him he will lead them.  He will convince people that a loving and forgiving God will make many ways available and we can make a choice as to how we want to get there.  Could he be trusted when he told Eve to eat the apple or when he told Sarah to let Hagar have Abraham’s son?  Look what those consequences brought.  In my lifetime I have never seen as much evil as we can witness in today’s world.

Lucifer convinced 1/3 of the angels to rebel against God.  He has convinced billions on this earth to reject God and His Son.  He is a charmer and a deceiver.  Don’t believe his lies as so many have.  His goal is to have a one-world government and a one-world religion so that He can rule the world as god and be worshipped.  The Bible says his desires will be fulfilled, temporarily.  Don’t fall into his trap!
