This video almost sounds like the “lone” voice in the wilderness of our generation:
FEW WILL BE SAVED. Really? Says who? A (prone to sin) preacher? An obscure prophet in the Bible ( does the Old Testament really apply to us today)? I am being ironic, here.
It was actually Jesus who said:
“Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. Matthew 7:21
But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:14
So, if you don’t believe it, you don’t believe Jesus, and why do you think you are still a Christian then, if you don’t even believe what Jesus (the founder of Christianity) has to say?
See the transcript from this sermon compilation below the video. It is worth reading it, as reading makes an indelible impression on the memory. See especially the words of John Piper and Leonard Ravenhill.
Lots of people in that day say “Lord,Lord”.
He says “I never knew you!”
What I wanna tell you tonight…I believe the same thing is happening in our churches every Sunday night.People are choking and we are trying to pour the words of life into them, it pours over them- so damned and lost- they can’t take it! They listen to the same preacher year after year, who says the same thing in the same way. He hasn’t shed a tear since he left his mother’s womb. He went to the seminary and he got a big fat head and a shrunken soul. So there’s no hope. This generation will fill hell quicker than any other generation, we are so corrupt, UNLESS in His mercy, God FILLS us.

John Piper- 00:53
There is a HOLINESS without which we will not see the Lord!(Hebrews 12:14) I really BELIEVE that. There is a practical DAILY lived out righteousness without which NOBODY gets into heaven. Which means that Jesus will say to some PROFESSING Christians on the judgment day, “I NEVER knew you! Depart from me you workers of iniquity.” Even though they said,”Lord,Lord, we DID many mighty works in your name. We went to CHURCH every Sunday.” He dismisses them as evildoers because they did not have the holiness without which NO ONE will ever see the Lord. It also means that there are many church going people who believe that they are saved because THEY ONCE PRAYED to receive Jesus, not realizing that the PROOF of the GENUINENESS of that PRAYER is PERSEVERANCE in FAITH and HOLINESS. He who endures to the end will be saved. Not those who endure halfway to the end and then abort. I believe my ministry would be a failure if you came to church 5, 10, 20, 30 years and then went to hell for all eternity because you never learned to fight the fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life. I might succeed in persuading you that there is a holiness without which you cannot see the Lord, only to have you throw yourself into pursuing it in a way that backfires on you and destroys you. The Bible makes it very clear that there is a way to pursue righteousness that leads to hell.
Paul Washer - 02:50
When He speaks of few finding eternal life, He’s talking about those who profess His name. Among those who call Jesus “Lord”, FEW of them will find eternal life.
Tim Conway - 03:08
Nobody purposes to go to hell. They all think to get right with God before the end and most men make shipwreck. Few there be that find it. You mean all those people just lived a life hell bent, that they wanna go to hell?
Paul Washer - 03:35
“cause we already know these people consider themselves disciples and they called Jesus “Lord,Lord”, but their life is not marked by the will of God, and so to sum this up, this is what’s being said,”Depart from Me, those of you who consider yourselves my disciples and even emphatically declared Me to be Lord, but YOU did NOT COMMUNE with ME and you lived as though I never gave a law to obey.
I JUST DESCRIBED AMERICAN CHRISTIANITY.
The 60 or 70% of the people in this country who believe that they’re converted because one time in their life they prayed a prayer.
Leonard Ravenhill – 04:26
I’m astonished, bewildered, confused, baffled when people tell me in America we have 75 million people who are filled with the Holy Ghost And we’re the rottenest people on earth. Come on!
Tim Conway - 04:37
Let me tell you something. Lost men, lost women – which is most of the people- Remember, few those be that find Him. Oh yeah, there’s lots of religious people (who) think they’re going to heaven. Lots of people in that day say, “Lord,Lord” and He says, “I never knew you”.
Paul Washer – 04:58
What He’s saying is,”Not everyone who emphatically declares Me to be Lord will enter into the kingdom of heaven. This is not some secret discipleship here. This is not some hidden thing. This is a person who emphatically says, “Yes, I’m a christian!”. He (Christ) says, “Not everyone who says this will enter the kingdom of heaven. Which is synonymous with -not everyone who says this is truly christian.
Leonard Ravenhill - 05:27
My question. Does anybody care? Do we REALLY CARE that the WORLD is GOING to HELL?
Charles Leiter – 05:37
You think of Sodom and Gomorrah. You look at how deplorable the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah were. But He says it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah than for YOUNG PEOPLE that have SAT in MEETINGS and HEARD about the LORD JESUS and NOT BELIEVED on Him. That is wickedness beyond imagination and we need to have our minds renewed in this to realize we have gotten a glimpse of what infinitely lovely. God HAS COME into the world and LIVED AMONG MEN. And if you want to talk about sin and CONVICT men of SIN- EXALT the LORD JESUS CHRIST!
Leonard Ravenhill – 06:15
The GREATEST MIRACLE of what God can do is to take an unholy person out of an unholy world, make that person holy, put them back in an unholy world and keep them holy. In the midst of a crooked and perverted and perverse generation.
Charles Leiter – 06:33
He is worthy of worship, whether you and I are going to hell. In the end He is still WORTHY of WORSHIP for WHAT HE has DONE. If you look at what He did on the cross, if you look at the GRACE of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, He OWES no one ANYTHING. He doesn’t need to save anybody. Everyone in this room ought to bow down and worship Him, just because of what He’s done. Whether you get anything out of it or not. HE is WORTHY of WORSHIP!
Leonard Ravenhill – 07:00
You know, we are PREACHING an acceptable Gospel today, making it as painless as we can. And all we do is give people a shot to put them to sleep so they get to hell quicker.
Paul Washer – 07:18
Do you want to know what your profession of faith in Jesus Christ is really worth? Your confession of faith in Him, what it’s worth? It’s worth absolutely nothing. No matter how emphatically someone declares themselves to be christian, it is not the test of whether their christianity is true. WHAT is the TEST? We go on (and) we see this, “But, he who DOES the WILL of MY FATHER who is in heaven, WILL ENTER.” Now, He is in no way teaching a works salvation. Not at all. He’s not teaching that men enter the kingdom of heaven by their ability to perform the will of God. That’s not what He’s teaching. If you think that, you’re putting the cart before the horse. What He’s teaching is simply this. THOSE who have TRULY BELIEVED, do so by the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT by which they’ve been REGENERATED and MADE new creatures. Through this MIRACULOUS WORK of SALVATION and the CONTINUING WORK of the HOLY SPIRIT in their LIFE, their lives and their manner of living are CHANGED. And so the TRUE CHRISTIAN is a christian by believing in Jesus. But, you know he TRULY BELIEVES in Jesus because of the CHANGES in his LIFE and those CHANGES are MARKED by CONFORMITY to the WILL of GOD.
Leonard Ravenhill - 08:53
I believe we are going into the darkest days that humanity has ever known. So dark, they’ll make the dark ages look like midday.
LUKE 13:24 – STRIVE to ENTER
FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT
ARE YOU ONE OF THE FEW???????????????

Come to Christ, He is Mighty to Save – Paul Washer

Rev 22:17 The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.
