I had a
dream that started in a crowded highway.
was very, very noisy; there
were several lanes going both ways, filled with many cars. For
some reason, the wide highway started to became more narrow, and the traffic
diminished. Then the expressway changed into a two-lane thoroughfare; gradually
the concrete pavement grew worse and it became a dusty
country gravel road, as I got further away from the city. Finally, the road
became a narrow small dirt path with no one using it but me; there were no houses or
buildings of any kind, and there were no power lines. I felt completely
isolated. The pothole-filled road had become a dirt rut with weeds growing in
hardly anybody ever went this way.
I noticed that bushes were growing on both sides, and
hemming me in. It made traveling hard for me. Gradually, trees began to appear
and they grew taller and taller. It was like they reached up to the
sky. I could barely see the road anymore as
the path was full of leaves; however, I
At the end of the tiny narrow path there was a
clearing and there was a house in the middle. Inside it lived seven angelic girls that were good and
This dream made me think about the path that we choose
in life. People of the world are on the wide path. Because they feel that
there is safety in numbers, they do not want to go any other way, but where the
crowds are going. They do not like to be seen as weird by the large group.
The wide road has a smooth pavement, so it is easy to
travel in. It is very spacious, comfortable, beautiful and alluring. Its
destination though is DESTRUCTION. It reminds me of the Sunshine Skyway
Bridge going to Tampa, Florida. In 1980 it broke, and all the cars going
down that way were plunging into the abyss down below.
In contrast, the narrow path does not have many people
going on it. People who follow God through the narrow path feel isolated from
other human beings; they rely only on the Lord. In fact, the original
word for narrow is "cramped" meaning it is restrictive, tight, and
difficult to enter through that gate, and difficult to advance through that
road. Going on this narrow path requires a constant effort.
We are therefore presented with two roads, the choice is
There is a narrow gate that is
the entrance to a narrow path. The gate is so narrow... that very few
find it. The road is just a little path, but its destination is
Enter ye in at the strait (narrow) 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.
Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to
enter in, and shall not be able.
Satan makes it very difficult for most people to follow the narrow path. People
want to be with other people, and the narrow path is almost deserted! Not
only that, but it is uncomfortable to travel. It gets tougher and tougher as you
advance, and the weeds (problems) seem to be closing in on you more and more as you try to go
forward. There are signs that say... "Keep it up, you are almost
there!" Yes, this narrow path is the path you are intended to go.... with
very few people.
Jeshua has told us that we must follow Him through this narrow road...
that we must trust Him and keep His commandments.
My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee
Keep my commandments, and LIVE; and my law as the apple of thine eye
Yes, keeping God's commandments leads to LIFE. This is the narrow path--
the path this deceived world does not follow, the path that is devoid of
If ye love me, keep my
Keeping the commandments is the
way to continue in this narrow path, the path that leads to LIFE.
