Narrow Is The Way

Lily Among Thorns Song Of Solomon 2:2 In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3   

Shape Up and Fly Right

Chapter 2, Pages 60, 61

All to soon the truck began to roll down the street where I lived, and just when I was about ready to drown in my own tears of sorrow, I saw the police beginning to leave my home. As their vehicles began to depart one by one, I found some peace of mind in knowing my family was left alone, and at least for now they were out of danger. But as my refuge from this nasty and cruel world began to get narrower and narrower, the reality of a frighting future set in.  With despair now lingering in the air ready to set in like cement, excessive tears of mourning began to roll. Left to my own devices, I used a time-honored but crude method from my childhood and began wiping away the grief from my cheeks by using my shirt sleeves. But I came to learn right quick, this was only the beginning of my indignities.

Author’s Commentary

The road up ahead grows narrower as the view of Lily’s childhood home grows smaller with each passing minute. The small minded menstealers manhandling Lily on all sides brought her to the commonsensical conclusion she is without   recourse.1st Timothy1:10, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine.

The hour of rationalizing as to how can this be happening in a ‘Free & Constitutional Republic’ has come and gone. 2nd Corinthians 3:17, Now the Lord is the Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

The willfully ignorant prefer to ignore the warning signs on the horizon. Hosea 4:6, My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

The fearful thought to lay low, and perhaps ride out the storm. Revelation 21:8, But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake  which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Ancient cultures, and no doubt all of history has been leading up to this zenith of depravity. What is left to debate, or reason. The eventuality of centuries of abuses and malfeasance have now come to its crowning achievement.

Vanished is the civility of the Bible and all its righteous statutes are scorned in the public square. The Bible’s prophetic warning bells has finally come to fruition, and the world is utterly reprobate. Lily knows she is at the end of the road, and narrow is the hour of Biblical proportions!

Holy Scriptures, Old Testament


Isaiah 14:12-17, How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt  my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

Holy Scriptures, New Testament


Matthew 7:14, Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
