According to Wikipedia,1 the world’s largest religion is Christianity. And that’s just what this number represents… ‘religion,’ not the number of true Christians. Jesus said there are actually very few real Christians because the way is difficult and the door (gate) is hard to find. ~ “Because narrow is the gate [door] and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” (Matthew 7.14). In sharp contrast to what is widely taught out of the pulpit, when was the last time you heard someone preach about the fact that most people cannot even find how to enter into the family of God?
The Hidden Door
In fact, most people do not even know that that there is a specific ‘door,’ hidden and hard to find, that must be entered into in a specific way, or they will never become part of the family of God. Thank God for those who have actually entered the spiritual door Christ is referring to without a formal understanding of how they did it. But, for the most part who are seeking to enter in, all they know is that something huge is missing in their spiritual life, but they can’t put their finger on just what it is. Fortunately, the Bible reveals how to find the door and how to enter into communion with God and His family.
The Door & the Blood
It was the blood on the door that delivered each family from the angels of destruction that brought the plague of death over Egypt. In the night that God delivered the families of Israel, He first instituted the Passover (communion) feast, which was mandatory for all those who would be delivered from the plagues of God, which is also symbolic of plagues mentioned in the book of Revelation that will take place in the last days.
Why So Many Dead Christians
Unfortunately, most Christians have never been taught what Passover is, less that, in the New Testament just as it was in Old Testament Times, Passover (Communion) is the door to God, heaven (the promise land), healing and deliverance from the plagues of God’s wrath. The book of 1 Corinthians affirms that the lack of accurate instruction and employment of Communion (Passover) in the New Testament Church is the reason so many believers today are sick, weak, and many have even died. ~ “For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep” (1Corinthians 11.29,30). Notice, the Bible clearly states that lack of our accurate enactment of Communion in the church is the particular cause of spiritual and physical weakness, sickness and death among Christians.
The Hidden Door Revealed
Just as Passover delivered from the plagues of God’s wrath upon Egypt in the Old Testament, even so Communion is the key to protection, healing and the presence of God in the New Testament. The book of 1Corinthians tells us that the events of Passover recorded in Exodus reveal how to be saved and find the hidden door Jesus mentioned. ~ “Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come” (1Corinthians 10.11).
The Blood-stained Door
And it is precisely ‘The Door’ (John 11.9) that is the key to implementing the power of the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ, who saves those of God’s children who are devoted enough to follow the spiritual steps, whether consciously or simply by the following the voice of the Holy Spirit. ~ “And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. And none of you shall go out of the door of his house until morning. For the LORD will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the LORD will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you” (Exodus 12.22,23).
Applying the Blood to the Door
Here the Bible gives us the first three crucial steps to entering into the divine protection of Communion (Passover): 1) the blood of the Lamb, 2) the door, and 3) the house. First, the blood is the Word of God, New Testament when it is properly employed. Jesus said… ~ “For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins” (Matthew 26.28). Only those who apply the New Testament (blood) to the door of the Church enter into life and true communion with the Body of Christ. Most of those who call themselves do not even attend a church, or attend some man-made religious organization, which they know perfectly well does not comply with a honest interpretation of the New Testament church. Most just tag along with someone else and go to the most comfortable (to the flesh) and convenient place in their neighborhood, best light-show, most flamboyant pastor, or best music.
The Body and Blood of the Lamb
Jesus gives a detailed description of how He2 is the only Door through which access to the true Church is possible in John 10. The house is the church of the living God, where those enter in encounter actual communion in the authentic community of believers and partake of communion of the Body (church) and blood (preaching) of the New Testament as directed by the Spirit. And we know that only those who are in spiritual communion with the church are saved and have eternal life. ~ “Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood [communion], you have no life in you” (John 6.53). All those outside the Door are dead and lost.
I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
