"And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many."

Are you part of the remnant?
Narrow is the way indeed…
How narrow is the way?
It is through just one man alone, the man Christ Jesus.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 1 Timothy 2:5-6
Estimates of the world’s population at the time Noah range between 750 million to 4 billion. Taking an average of those widely ranging estimates gives us a compromise at 2,375,000,000.
When the flood came via God’s righteous judgment only 8 people out of an estimated 2 billion people were saved.
There were 600,000 men, not including the number of the women and children, who were led out of Egypt by God through His servant Moses.
Out of over an estimated 2 million people who left Egypt only two of those entered into the promise land.
Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved…Romans 9:27
But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. Romans 11:4-5
Throughout the Bible we see that indeed it is few there be that find it.
I have always seen the modern Church misusing the Gospel and thus falsely justifying and claiming unsaved souls as being saved as being a sort of "Spiritual Bulldozer" trying to make the narrow way broader despite God telling us not to.
God said to choose the old paths and those are indeed narrow despite whatever ungodly efforts are made to the contrary. God's remnant are those who enter in at the straight gate and take the old paths
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16
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: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13-14
Are you certain that you are one of the few?
Are you part of God’s remnant?
If you are not then you need to get soundly saved. Repent of your sins and turn to serve God through Jesus Christ in a fully humbled and submitted spirit. Get started by reading through the Gospel of John as well as John’s epistles and then move on to the book of Romans and then the rest of the Bible and pray for God's Spirit to lead you to understand what His will and plan is for your life and for the world's. Sincerely seek out the truths of God and how the scriptures apply to your soul’s current and future existence. It's a matter of life and death. Choose life.
