BUILD THE WALL!


People make fun of the proposed wall at the southern border of your country. You know, the one like the one on the border between Mexico and Guatemala that already exists.

The church is like the country – letting everybody in.
People who do not share a deep love for Christ.
People without a loyalty to the things Christ stands for.

God put a wall around his kingdom.
It is impenetrable and the only entrance is through a very narrow door which is Christ.
There is no door designed for political activists who replace Jesus with the state.
Or liberation folks.
Or the do-good types like Mother Teresa who ended up not believing Jesus was God.
Or those with a false religious spirit.
Or those who have a litany of human-conceived rules that seem great.
Or nice affirming people.
One door with one means of admission – the blood of Christ applied to erase  the applicant’s sins.

People try to climb in to the kingdom, but they are unsuccessful.
They have to come through the door or they are excluded forever.

However, they do climb into church organizations rather easily who do not have the same wall God has. These organizations reduce the requirements to enter and join.
They do not require faith even though without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God.
They do not require holiness, with though without holiness, NO MAN can see God.
They do not require belief, even though we must believe his word and in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Embrace the narrow way so that the church will be without spot or wrinke or any such thing.
Christ can and will wash the vilest clean,
But the vilest must be willing to b made clean..
They come with no preconditions except they are coming in repentance and humility to accept the sacrifice of Christ on the cross for them and to live in subjection to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords which is their most reasonable service.
They do not want to a better person but a person conformed to the likeness of Christ himself and be a vessel where the fullness of Christ dwells.


You church must mirror the kingdom – open the door to all who wish to come the way of the Father through Christ.  No one else is part of my glorious Body.  Whosoever will may come, but they must come as I the Lord have directed.
