Missed by a Mile or a Fraction of a Degree

As I was sitting here thinking about some things that have been said and beliefs that have been spoken, I was reminded of a thought I had a few months ago. You know how in geometry and angles, if you are off by a fraction of a degree, it does not seem like a big deal at first, but then you get out a ways, and you might hit Seattle instead of Los Angeles? Well, the Word of God can be like that too. Some people believe, sincerely, in what they are saying, but at the same time are sincerely wrong. When you teach and preach things like the law is done away with, and it is okay to sin because grace covers a multitude of sin, you may not even hit Heaven in the end. How sad that some will miss Heaven by a fraction of a degree because they refuse to examine their beliefs and take Yahveh at His Word.

Matthew 7

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

 15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Let us pray that the veil would be lifted, eyes would be opened, and hearts changed.  John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

  1. Wow. Good insight! Kinda reminds me of the saying, “a miss is as good as a mile.” We should be checking ourselves to make sure we’re lining up to the standard set forth by Yahveh.
