Jesus said whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation of him shall the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in His glory
Wisdom is the principal thing therefore get wisdom
If we had wisdom we could love others without stumbling others without saying the full truth which is considered a lie even if we said some truth or rather half truth
Therefore do only the wise enter through the door which is Jesus while the foolish stand outside knocking
Jesus is the door likened unto the door of Noah ark which was left open 6 days before the flood came and took them away
Today is the day of salvation. The foolish sought oil too late not today. Though God may not close the door on some if they do not heed today he may on others and especially on great sinners or anyone who should know better. In the parable of the workers those who were given work at the 11th hour were given so because no one ever reached them
So Paul said we should not tempt Christ as some of them did and in one day 23000 fell
We who believe enter Gods rest where we rest from our works which seems to refer to works of sin which Paul says our hearing of the word to profit us must be mixed with faith that is meditate to have knowledge which produces faith if we truly believe in Jesus which is all His words so our heart will be good soil to bear fruit. Jesus says why call Me Lord and not do what I say ? Therefore one does not believe Jesus is Lord if he does not do what He says.
Also I mean the door is still open which we can knock on if we are not sinning wilfully but because we don’t know how to repent but we must still find God’s will and repent.
Paul said do not be unwise but understand what the will of the Lord is
God is long suffering not willing that any should perish who deserve patience. The door can still close but God promises if we keep knocking and asking He can bring us back. Because with God all things are possible . He said in revelations he who thirsts let him drink. Today is the day of salvation
Whoever does not enter heaven can not hope to be saved after else the sinners would not have said we ate and drank in your presence and you taught in our streets they know they are sinners but they thought they had assurance and we know Jesus only continued to teach those who would listen to Him which some would listen but they would not do
