There is a reason why people do not enter the gates of Heaven.
Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. (Isa 53:1-2 KJV)
When the Truth came people did not recognize Him. When people get acquainted with the truth most of them don’t recognize it. The same way it is today. “He was despised”. Truth is despised and rejected of men.
Many pastors and leaders have ignored through the generations the truth inherent in the Word of God and brought peril and a strange gospel into their churches. Though the Truth is at times hard to swallow, the application of truth to our lives causes us to live in freedom from sin and oppression of the devil.
