My talk with the Lordfirstname.lastname@example.org/revised March 23, 1999
The Last Room
We build our lives with the choices we make,
like building a house with many doors and gates.
It is the rooms which give the house its true character,
and reflects the owner’s worth and worldly treasures.
Each of the rooms in our house of life has two pathways out,
one leading to eternal darkness, and one to eternal light.
Once we leave a room, the door closes behind us forever,
and it’s beauty or darkness will not change, but will remain forever.
Even if all of our rooms have been filled with darkness,
our next room always offers new sight through the brightness of a door of light.
It is not the number of rooms which makes our life house beautiful,
it is the light which shines beyond ourselves, and shows us the pathway to heaven or hell.
Even the smallest light brings life to the dreadful darkness,
and keeps the black night from enclosing our house of light.
We never know when we enter the last room in our house of life,
where there will be no more choices of darkness or light.
But when that final door closes behind us, our choice is made,
to stay in our darkness,
or to go to a beautiful heaven our Lord has made.
It is our knowledge that lets us see the spiritual doors of life, because without knowledge the doors cannot be seen, and we remain in our darkness. Without knowledge, we are like the bull in the arena, charging at the red cape, but not understanding that it is the matador who controls the cape and is there just to torment us. God has given us knowledge of good and evil, and it is up to us to choose which is most important to us. The correct choice seems obvious, but few will grasp the truth and will prefer to remain in their darkness.
We only have to choose the door, God provides the light. Reach for His Door of Light while there is still time, it would be so sad to be in God’s glory, and have left you behind.
I am the door:
by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
