Jesus: the Door to Heaven John 10:1-10

Text:  “But he/she that entereth in (to Heaven) by the door is the Shepherd of the sheep.”
John 10:2.
          “Neither is there Salvation in any other; for there is none other Name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
Acts 4:12.

Good morning, legitimate Christian!  There is ONE legitimate way into Heaven; one door alone through which the soul can enter into the Heavenly Realm - and that legitimate entrance is by grace, through faith, in the Person and Sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus is the Door to Heaven.  Hallelujah!  We can come no other way!

“Jesus saith unto him (Thomas), I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”  (John 14:6)

Increasingly, in this age of ‘easy-believism’, liberalism, and post-modernistic apostasy, we find ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing’ who have crept into the universal church institutions in one way or another - trying desperately to teach the concept of multi-faith religion.  What a dangerous thing to do!

“For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness (I.e wantonness; greedy for personal gain and prestige, etc.), and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”  (Jude 4)

“This KNOW also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection (homosexual), truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof; from such turn away.”  (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

These latter-day charlatans, self-gain coveters, seek to militantly promote the blasphemous notion that there is more than one way to receive Salvation; more than one way to Heaven; more than one Door of Heavenly entrance.  Bible-believing Christian, BEWARE!

Our Bibles, God’s revealed Word and will to mankind, clearly teaches us that there is only ONE DOOR to Eternal life; ONE DOOR of entrance to God’s Presence in the Heavenly Realm.  

That ONE DOOR is through the Lord Jesus Christ and His once for all time full Atonement for sin at that place called Calvary.  Jesus Christ, the Son of God is - exclusive of all others - the only way to receive Eternal life.  That’s the Gospel truth.  HE is the Gospel Truth.  Trust in Him, and in Him alone, and enter Heaven’s Door.  (John 17:17) (John 1:1; 14)

“Verily (truly), verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the Door into the Sheepfold, but climbed up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.”  (John 10:1)

“Marvel not that I (Christ Jesus) say unto thee, Ye MUST be born again.”   (John 3:7)

Political Marxists all accept the teachings of Karl Marx.  Buddhists all accept the teachings of Buddha - ‘…a title applied to Sakyamuni or Gautama, the 5th Century N. Indian founder of a religion of spiritual purity…’.  Roman Catholics all accept the teachings of Roman Catholicism and seek to be obedient to the R.C. Pope.  Hindus ‘…believe in a form of Brahmanism…a caste system for India…reincarnation…the worship of several ‘gods’, etc.  (The Chamber’s Dictionary definitions)

Is it too much to ask, therefore, that men and women who call ourselves ‘Christians’ should seek to follow the risen Christ Jesus, serve Him, and adhere to His teachings ALONE?

Christ Jesus teaches us that He alone is the Door to Heaven.  Do you believe it, professing Christian?

Christ Jesus clearly teaches us that trusting in His Sacrifice alone to Atone for our sins is the only way of Eternal Salvation.  Do you believe it?

The Lord Jesus in today’s selected Bible Reading from John’s Gospel proclaims Himself to be ‘…the Door…’ to Heaven.  Do you believe it?

“I am the door; by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”  (John 10:10)

Thought:  True Christians promote, proclaim, and seek to obey the teachings of Christ alone!  Faith in Christ alone brings life Eternal.  Praise be to His Name!
