Leviticus 20: Strait Is The Gate And Narrow Is The Way
"Ye shall be holy unto Me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be Mine"
There are millions of people today who have been misled into the Satanic fraud that they can do whatever they please as "Christians," as long as they "believe on the name of Jesus." They claim to be Christian, but ignore or reject what the Messiah actually taught and commanded (see Why Call Me, Lord, Lord, and Do Not The Things Which I Say?).
The Messiah was Sacrificed for repentant sinners, not for self-righteous rebels (see Christ Died For Repentant Sinners). There is a lake of fire coming for those who refuse to repent (see What Believers Will Be In The Lake Of Fire?). Note that "strait," as used in these verses, means a narrow passage, as in the right way, whereas "straight" merely means direct - without the right way, self-righteous people can still go "straight to hell."
"7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate [see 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: 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
The Laws of the LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ; see Genesis 1: In The Beginning Was The Word and The Kingdom Of The LORD God) are about joyous life and true freedom, not miserable existence and anarchy that those who refuse to repent choose to live, and die, by (see What Was The Lesson Of John 3:16?).
"20:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 20:2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. 20:3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. 20:4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not: 20:5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
Fact Finder: What does "saved" actually mean? When will it happen?
This Day In History, November 11
308: In an attempt to restore order to the unraveling Roman Empire, Emperor Diocletian met with Galerius, Augustus of the East, and Maximianus, the recently returned former Augustus of the West (see A History Of Jerusalem: Pompey And The Caesars). The Roman Roman Empire nevertheless fell and was superseded, historically and prophetically, by the "Holy Roman Empire Of The German Nation" (see The Holy Roman Empire Of The German Nation).
1100: King Henry I of England (the word "king" originated from a term that meant the head of a kin i.e. a family patriarch; the original meaning of "patriotism" was to be loyal to the king) married Matilda of Scotland, the daughter of Malcolm III of Scotland.
1417: Unity of the Church of Rome's papacy was recovered with the election of Martin V. The Great Western Schism, beginning in 1378, resulted in a pope in Rome, another in Avignon, France and a third established by the Council of Pisa (see The Struggle For The Papacy).
1500: Louis XII of France and Ferdinand of Aragon signed the secret Treaty of Granada for the conquest and partition of Naples.
1572: Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe observed a bright "new star" in Cassiopeia, shining as brightly as Venus. He continued to observe the super nova (a star which has exploded after all of its fuel has been used up) for 18 months as it slowly faded.
1606: A peace treaty was signed at Zeita-Torok between the Turks and Austrians.
1620: The Mayflower Compact was signed by the English pioneers who became known as the "Pilgrims" (to understand the actual Biblical meaning of "pilgrim," see The Pilgrims).
1673: Poland's King John Sobieski defeated the Turks at Korzim, Poland.
1805: The Battle of Durenstein during the Napoleonic Wars (named after Napoleon Bonaparte). 8,000 French troops attempted to slow the retreat of a much larger Russian and Austrian force.
1813: During the War of 1812 (1812-1814), 800 British troops, Canadian militia and natives repelled 4,000 U.S. invaders at the Battle of Chrysler's Farm near Cornwall, Ontario. Along with other defeats and stalemates during the previous months, it forced the U.S. to abandon their campaign of obliterating Canada as a nation and annexing Canadian territory into the U.S. (two actually-stated goals by U.S. President James Madison when he declared the start of the war in 1812).
1918: The armistice was signed to end The First World War in which over 10 million people were killed (listen to our Sermon The European World Wars).
1953: The polio virus was identified and photographed for the first time.
1971: The U.S. ratified a treaty to return the island of Okinawa to Japan (although the U.S. maintains large military bases in Japan to this day).
1972: The U.S. turned over its large base at Long Binh to the South Vietnamese, symbolizing the end of direct U.S. participation in the Vietnam Civil War.
1973: A cease-fire agreement was signed between Israel and Egypt (see also A History Of Jerusalem: War And Peace).
1975: The African nation of Angola became independent from Portugal.
1982: Polish "Solidarity" union leader Lech Walesa was released from 11 months of detention in a state-owned hunting lodge.
1992: The Church of England voted to allow women to be ordained as priests. Women were already allowed to become priests in 11 branches of the Anglican Church, including Canada and the U.S. (the Supreme Governor of the Church of England, the British Monarch, is also at the present time a woman, Queen Elizabeth II).
