49 “I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished! 51 Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division. 52 For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three.53 Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.” Luke 12:49-53.
Jesus has not come to bring peace upon the earth. Many people think that Jesus came to bring peace. Jesus came to save humanity, but in so doing He also brought division. There have been many families who have been divided over the truth of Jesus Christ. All those who call upon the name of Jesus shall be saved, but there are many more who shall find the road that leads to destruction than those who find the road that leads to eternal life.
Jesus said that broad is the road that leads to destruction and many shall walk on it. The road is broad because it enables many to walk on it at one time. The road is broad because it has many options and many temptations. There are many on this earth who desire the ways of the world and the lust of the flesh. How many today who surround us on a daily basis who simply desire to have everything revolve around them and desire that their wants and desire be the focal point of everything.
But narrow is the road that leads to life and few will find it. It is narrow because there is only one way and that is through Jesus. It is narrow because few will choose to follow Jesus Christ. We live in a world today that is filled with darkness and deception. Because of the internet and entertainment today people have access to the deepest, darkest deception and wickedness that Satan offers.
People by the droves are engaging in wickedness and become more and more bound by the enemy. But throughout the earth the Lord is bringing forth the harvest. As many intercede and seek His face, greater angelic activity is being released and more and more hearts are being softened and prepared.
Let us not focus on the media and the circumstances that stand before us. The enemy will try to overwhelm us with discouragement and doubt. But the truth is that God is on the move. God is moving mightily in America and in the nations. He is bringing His plans and purposes to pass on the earth. As we seek and follow Him, He will lead and guide us into all truth.
