Final Destination: My Letter to You About Meeting Love Along the Way

Enter the Narrow Gate

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go by in it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. (Matthew 7: 13-14 NKJV)

For the last few days my mind and my heart has been thinking about you.

“Who? Me?!!”, you may be asking yourself. My answer is “Yes, it’s you that I’m talking to.”

As I sat and thought about life, the people in it and where we are all headed for our final destination, I could not feel anything but love and compassion for those without Love. This Love goes by the name of Jesus the Messiah, Lord and Savior, Prince of Peace, Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Lamb of God and the Truth. He has many other names but I am just naming a few.

Oh how I wish that I could tell you this in person so that you could hear and see my face when I talk about Jesus! I want to hug you, hold your hand and tell you about the Love who changed my life a long time ago because I know He can do it for you. This is how much I care about where you will be when your time expires on this earth; this temporary dwelling place until we reach our eternal home.

Heaven or hell. One of the two is where we will be sent depending on what we choose to do in this life. It will be too late afterward. I’m just being honest.

This Love came to earth in the form of man to teach us many things and to ultimately take our sins upon His shoulders and die for us so that we could be reconciled back to God. I say that because sin separates us from the Father. We cannot go before God or even make it to heaven without Jesus. His love and sacrifice is unlike any other.

What person is willing to take on the sins of humanity and die a humiliating, horrific and painful death just to save a people who did not love or care about Him and what He came to do? Many of us may lay our lives on the line to protect our loved ones but that kind of love will not get us into eternity gracing the presence of God the Holy One.

Good deeds will not get us into heaven.

Believing, repenting, and receiving salvation in to your life will get you on the right path. Faith can do exceedingly great things beyond your understanding. Believe in Jesus the Christ who died yet was resurrected from the dead 3 days later. Death could not hold Him! Repent of your sins. Let me stop right here for a second.

Do you know that no matter what sins you have committed, Jesus already paid the price? Well He did! So whether it’s lying, murder, adultery, stealing, rape or serving false gods He already paid for your sins on the cross. All you have to do is confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that your sins have been washed away. Remembered no more.

Receive salvation and know that the angels are rejoicing in the heavens! Every time a life changes for the better, the devil has no reign over you. You have been set free from sin bondage by Satan.

Jesus came to give life and to set you free that you would have it in abundance. Being a child of God is truly rewarding. We are received unto Him. He will not look upon us and see our past sins but see us with love.

Had it not been for the shedding of pure and sinless blood, Jesus’ blood, we would all be hell bound.

We may not know each other, speak the same native tongue, live in the same country or even believe in the same things but I love you. God loves you more.

I don’t want you to live this life in vain. I care about where you will end up one day. I want to rejoice knowing that I will be with a host of fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord up in heaven than to not see you knowing that your eternity will be spent in pain and agony with the evil one.

Remember that the devil means you no good. His goal is to steal, kill and destroy. The things of this world is temporary. People, money, sex, desires and treasures of this life will soon fade. Lies and deception is Satan’s craft.

Tomorrow may be too late. You don’t know the day, hour or exact time that you will exist no more.

Will you receive Jesus into your life today? Will there be one? Even if you’ve accepted Christ a long time ago and are in a backslidden state, it’s not too late to come back. Come on back home. Come back to the true Love that can change your life forever. I wrote a post last year about the Blood. Read for yourself what The Blood Transfusion (link) can do for you and I.

Be blessed, be encouraged and know that I am praying for you no matter where you are in this big world. God understands every tongue and knows what’s in your heart. He is our Creator.

Just call on Him.

Dear reader,
I’m trusting the Lord to work everything out. I am only one person but I believe in God and his power. My faith trusts that a seed has been planted in your life. I will leave it up to Him to water it however He sees fit that a work may be done in you that will bring an everlasting change.

To God be the glory now and forevermore…. Amen. ❤️

Scriptures to meditate on


For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:16-18 NKJV)

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. (Matthew 7:7, 8 NKJV)

Hebrews 10:5-25 NKJV
“Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a body You have prepared for Me. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure. Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come— In the volume of the book it is written of Me— To do Your will, O God.’ ” Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them ” (which are offered according to the law), then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord : I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord and those who seek to repent and receive salvation, I pray that you will begin to live your life with a different mindset on a daily basis. You have been bought with a price. Jesus died for your sins so that you may live a life pleasing to God, to receive and inherit all that has been promised to you through Him who receives you into the Kingdom.

Salvation = taking off the old man and putting on the new man. You have received the Blood transfusion.

Not Carnality But Christ
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Character of the New Man
Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.

Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. (Colossians 3:1-17 NKJV)

That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. (Ephesians 4:22-24 KJV)

The Blood of Jesus is POWER and has the ability to make you new if you choose to receive. We’ve come into a new year and it’s time to praise God and thank him for mercy. We don’t deserve grace but it has been given. Don’t take for granted that “one day I’ll change and get right with God ” because tomorrow isn’t promised. Neither is the next breath.

Jesus is coming back. Believe it. It’s time to get your “house” in order and do what is right. Live this life not conformed to worldly standards but that of God’s. Our Father is a loving God, but a jealous One who will not have anyone or anything taking first place to Him.

Scripture references

•Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. (Exodus 34:14 NIV)

•The Lord is a jealous God and avenging; the Lord avenges and He is full of wrath. The Lord takes vengeance on His adversaries and reserves wrath for His enemies. (Nahum 1:2 AMP)

May the God Who is able to sustain you be with you from this day forward. Bless every word that proceeds out of your mouth, every thought that enters your mind, for out of the mind it filters down to your heart and out of your mouth. Ask Him to renew, restore and revive that righteous person you are called to be in Christ Jesus. You can not ” get it right ” before you come to Him. In your weakness you are made strong in the Lord. He will meet you right where you are in all your brokenness and begin to reign as Lord and Savior in your life.

Turn this year into a new one. Don’t look back at the past. It’s nothing but a hinderance if it isn’t producing good fruit ( spiritual ) in your life. Birds of a feather flock together. Look to your left and right and see if the fruit bearing around you is producing for the good or bad. Harvest time will show evidence throughout the year. Choose wisely what seeds you sow.

God loves you and so do I. Praying for ya…….
