When the Crowd Goes Wide, Its an Honor to Remain on the narrow road

Its an honor to remain on the narrow road that leads to life instead of the broad road that leads to destruction.

*[[Mat 7:13-23]] KJV* 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: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

False Prophets that lead you on the wide road dress like sheep, but they are wolves inside.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Many people on the wide road, even ones that preach, prophesy, do good works and call Jesus Lord will burn in hell because they never really obeyed Him.

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

“I can’t wait for the day when I can get off this Narrow road!”

Did you ever notice how Jesus’s road got narrower and narrower? Why do all his followers want a road that gets wider and wider?

“Things are tight now, but if I stay faithful this road is going to get broader and wider in the future!”

“I can’t wait for the day when I can get off this Narrow road! I’m believing for the day when I get blessed to Go Broad!”

As you walk with Christ, the path gets brighter and brighter because you have more revelation and light from the Holy Spirit on who Jesus Christ really is (Proverbs 4). You will see the path getting clearer and narrower, not broader and wider (Matthew 7). If you switch to a broader road you are headed for destruction.

Should I Switch?

Man this narrow road is so straight and constricting. I can only fit a few people behind me on it.

If i cross these bushes over to that broad road, its so wide and roomy i could get a lot of people to follow me on it. They could all see me easier. Plus it looks like its going the exact same way as this narrow road, and I could fit a lot of people behind me. Its all about people right?

Should i switch roads? What do you think?
