LATER PEREAN MINISTRY
Jul 28 9.1 Jesus passed through cities and villages teaching on his way to Jerusalem. Someone asked him, “Lord, will only a few be saved?”
Jesus answered, “Strive to enter the narrow1 gate, for many will seek entrance and will fail.
9.2 Once the house owner rises and locks the gate, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Lord, open to us’ But he will answer, ‘Where are you from?’ Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’ But he will reply, ‘I don’t know where you come from. Away, all you evildoers.’ There will be weeping and grinding of teeth when you see Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and all the prophets in God’s kingdom, but yourselves excluded. People will come from1 the east, west, north and south to feast there. Some now last, will be first; and some now first, will be last.”2
