"Do YOU Know the Way?"

“Do YOU Know the Way?”



“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am.  You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” 

Jesus answered, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14: 3-6


In verse three, Jesus is telling His disciples that He is going away, but He will return and will take them back with Him so that they may be where He is.  The preparation, which He mentioned, is NOT a building program in Heaven.  NOTICE:  In verse two, He states:  “My Father’s house HAS many rooms.”  NOT, WILL HAVE, but HAS.  Jesus was referring to His death and resurrection as the PREPARATION, because of the FACT that He is the WAY.  NO ONE comes to the Father, but by Him.  You can’t go to Heaven, unless you come THROUGH His BLOOD to the foot of the CROSS, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and ACCEPTING the fact that He was RESURRECTED and is ALIVE in Heaven. 


Notice also, that He says:  “You KNOW the way to the place where I am going.”  Jesus had taught this to His disciples many times, but until His death and resurrection, they were perplexed about what had to take place, for the SALVATION of mankind.  


Thomas, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Still perplexed about what Jesus way saying to them.  Then He replied, “I am the WAY and the TRUTH, and the LIFE.  NO ONE comes to the Father except through me.” 


I believe, at this point and time that statement may have added to their perplexity.  But when they had met with the Master, after His RESURRECTION, I think many of them began to grasp what He had been telling them all along, and at the coming of the Holy Spirit, upon them they began to see and KNOW the WAY.


Do you KNOW the way?  Or are you groping in darkness, LOST and SEARCHING for the Way.  You can KNOW the Way, and ESCAPE all the HORRORS of Hell, by coming to God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and KNOW the Way, the TRUTH and the LIFE.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
