Luke-the door is shut

  Luke 13:25  When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:  

When God shuts the door, then it is too late to accept salvation, it is over. When the people of Noah's day mocked him and his message, when God shut the door of the ark, it was over for them.  

 Gen 7:16  And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

Jesus is the door to God. When death comes to you and if you have not received Jesus by faith, the door is shut for you. When the rapture comes, his church will go up, if you have not received Jesus, the door is shut for you. When antichrist comes and people are required to receive the mark of the beast, if you do so, the door is shut for you.

Luke 13:26  Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
Luke 13:27  But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

You may have been a church attendee, you may have given to the poor, but you only did it to be seen by others. You never knew Jesus, and he never knew you as his friend. At the judgment he will not know you. The door is shut.  

Mat 7:21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Luke 13:28  There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.  

If you were not included and ended up in hell, the door was shut.  

Luke 13:29  And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.
Luke 13:30  And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.


It is the time of his second coming. You who have trusted in him, the angels will gather you to be with him. Decide now to be one who will be with Jesus in the kingdom and forever more. Be close to him, receive him as your Lord, your savior and your friend.  

John 10:9  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
John 10:10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
John 10:11  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

We who have trusted Jesus are his sheep and he is our shepherd. We may enter through his door.  

John 15:7  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

We are his beloved children. All good things are open to us, only believe.
