Jesus is the Way, What It Means: Last Chance!

Jesus is the way.

This statement brings rise to the question of the ages for those people who want to journey to God. But how do you utilise Jesus to get to God in practice as opposed to the inconclusive emotive words of Christianity? Without the answer to this question, there is undoubtedly no way to get to God.

The dark cloud that hovers over Christianity has left Jesus’s purpose as clear as mud. The words “Jesus is the way” are vocalised without ceasing but without understanding in the congregation which poses a severe problem, especially for those who desperately want to know.

The Problem

4. For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

5. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Psalms 5:4-5
Disappointed Black Woma Crying with Hands on Head

God takes no pleasure in evil, and the unrighteous (foolish) will not stand in His presence. Naturally, this poses a dilemma for those who believe in Him and want to stand in His presence and enter into the kingdom of God instead of the lake of fire. Since Jesus is the way, it goes without saying that Jesus is vital to get into that position.

Furthermore, Exodus 33:18-23 makes it abundantly clear that no man can see God’s face and live. Therefore, to further emphasise the importance of this situation we find ourselves in, nobody will stand before God and enter into life without the help of Jesus when abandoning the cares of this world in the service of God.

We have been worn out by sin and without understanding.

Those who are to enter into life must come to God in a state of cleanliness. To be clean is to be in a condition acceptable to God, which boils down to following his instructions. Good children are obedient to their righteous parents, and God is the ultimate standard of goodness whom any child would be proud to follow.

He is the epitome of righteousness, leaving no excuses for not choosing Him, especially when comparing his standards to those of the world where profit, hedonism and debauchery take precedence over human decency.

The Need to Belong

The need to belong is one of the things that we must overcome (Matthew 26:41, Romans 7:14-25, John 4:22-24), but it is rather tricky since it is embedded within our make-up to seek comfort in companionship. Consequently, this need, coupled with our worldly situational programming, the visual evidence-driven science, has left us rejecting the friendship of God. Our bodily and mental desires stop us from walking in the Spirit; thus, we cannot worship God in Spirit and Truth.

The testimony of Jesus, shown by his life on earth, is to sacrifice everything, your ambitions, your desires, your friendships, your family, your diet, your communications, and do everything for God. How do we let go and commit to God if we do not abandon ourselves, our needs and our desires?

Pursuing money and wealth is relentless and consumes the whole world’s thoughts and daily activities. The world’s craving for money is how we must desire God (1 Thessalonians 5:17-19), defining our belonging. We are to search for him, live for him, as we do for silver and gold—money (Proverbs 2:4-5).

Keys to the Kingdom

Jesus is the way, the key to the light, to God.

Our restoration is the key to standing in the presence of God. Jesus performed all the tasks necessary to allow us to get back into a state acceptable to God. But that is just the beginning.

Historically, I would have embarked on a few of the understandings of what Jesus did on earth, such as:

  • The blood sacrifice to cleanse the land as per the requirements of the law (Numbers 35:33) as an atonement to God for our sins.
  • Bringing us his testimony to worship God (Revelation 19:10), keeping God’s commandments and living by His instructions. Giving us a most outstanding example via his life.

Despite these reasons, it is not the end of the story. There is much more that we are not being told by those who claim to be our teachers. Jesus is the way (John 14:4-7), but what is that reality in our everyday lives?

Jesus is the Way

While we must do our part in sacrificing everything, our entire lives, for God and walk in his will, without Jesus’s help, this world will eat us alive. The powers that operate in this world who oppose God are extensive and powerful, enlisting the willing and unwilling. This world intends to conquer and establish its kingdom and destroy any who oppose them. The system of God is the polar opposite of the world, and therefore the servants of God find themselves in the crosshairs of this world.

They intend to wipe out the knowledge of God.

On your own you cannot survive.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians 6:12

These people wreak havoc on the world (Daniel 7:23) and terrified everyone to submission with trembling knees against their will. Still, they rebel against God with puffed out chests of bravado; a knife of persection at their backs and a carrot of money dangling in front of their noses. They understand the power of their rulers but not that of God, and therein lies their resignation and ultimate defeat.

Conclusion

This truth is hard to swallow; nevertheless, unless you sacrifice it, living as Jesus, your destination will be the lake of fire. You must be led by God and not by the enemy (Proverbs 5:8-13). Jesus is here to guide and protect us in this world. Literally! The enemy is fierce and roars like a dragon (Revelation 12:12), and on your own, you cannot win, but God has given us His Son in this world to see us through.

It is awful to invest your life in this world for nothing. A meaningless end while you are deceived into chasing greatness for yourself. Religion deceives so many people while working side by side with the world chasing money and spreading false doctrines (John 16:1-3).

Only those who commit totally and let go of their lives, their desires, their principles and the philosophies their lives are built on will see the truth and will know whether I am the one deceived or it is them. Jesus stands side by side on earth, literally, with those who stand with God (2 Kings 6:16).
