Few There Be That Find It
If you are saved, you are in a privileged minority and you ought be extremely grateful. You ought to be concerned about the lost individuals around you. You ought to be doing all you can to share the gospel with them. You ought to be loving them. And if you are loving them, you will be praying for them, witnessing to them and supporting financially and prayerfully ministers and ministries that share the gospel.
Matthew 7:13-14: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Luke 13:23-24: Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus is the strait gate and the narrow way that few find and many reject. The ark that saved Noah and his family was a type of Jesus. In our time, few are being saved and many are rejecting Him. During Noah*s time only the eight souls in his family out of the millions that were alive at the time were saved. Noah had preached righteousness for about a hundred years while he was building the ark. His preaching was believed only by his family.
1 Peter 3:20: Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
2 Peter 2:5: And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
Only Lot and his two daughters were saved out of Gomorra and the surrounding cities.
Genesis 19:15, 24-26: And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city. 24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. 26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
If you are not saved, you need to receive Jesus as soon and as quickly as you have an opportunity. Multitudes in Noah*s time, Lot*s city and in our time have missed their opportunities until it was too late.
Isaiah 55:6: Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
