About the two roads and the choice we have to make…
The Old Testament is among other things, a history of the creation of the heavens and earth and the creation of the Jewish people and nations. As does the history of other nations it contains the violence of the times and the causes of the violence. When you understand the Heart of God, you can learn from this, the cure for this violence. We also can see that while the devil is around, he, the devil, goes about like a roaring lion, seeking who he may devour.
The devil promotes violence and destruction and he wants to keep you from the Heart of God to your own destruction. Jesus came as the perfect “Lamb of God”, to destroy the works of the devil and reconcile you unto God. While the devil is darkness, destruction and deceit, God is love, righteousness, truth and compassion.
God is full of mercy and will forgive us, if we come to Him through His Son, Jesus the Christ.
There are two roads in this world, one is wide to destruction, the road the devil wants to keep you on.
The other is narrow and not seen by many, but it leads to the Heart of God. This is the ultimate purpose of the Bible, to show us the way to the narrow road of salvation, to the Heart of God. God provided the way, but He gives us the choice to follow Him, through Jesus in and to Eternal Life or to continue on the road of and to eternal destruction, following the devil.
For Eternal Life, a new heart is required. We must be “born again”. We must be born again into the Heart of Jesus Christ. We are by sin, already on the path to eternal destruction, so we must choose to follow Jesus into Life everlasting. When we leave this world, if we are Christ’s, we will go to be with Him in heaven, there will no longer be evil, corruption, hate, deceit, wars or unrighteousness in heaven. There will only be the Heart of God, righteousness, truth and love.
The works of the devil are obvious and the works of God are also obvious.
We must make our choice, Heaven or Hell, choose you this day whom you will serve, as for me and my house we will serve the Lord. Joshua said it best, Joshua 24:15 KJV “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” The choice is and always has been your choice.
