In Sydney, Australia, there is one of the most beautiful harbors in the world. It has but one entrance. The only chan nel, wide and deep, is between two high promontories of rock known as the North Head and the South Head. A short distance from the South Head there is a depression in the coastline called “ The Gap,” and this gap became known as “ the graveyard of ships,” so often was it mistaken for the entrance to the harbor. Many years ago, a vessel called The Dunbar, with hundreds of people on board, drew near the harbor after dark. The captain saw “ The Gap” and thought it was the entrance to the harbor. Be fore he discovered his mistake, he heard the roar of the breakers against the rocks. Every one of the hundreds of passengers perished, with the exception of one man who was thrown up onto a ledge on the high rocks. The captain had been perfectly sincere. But he was mis taken, and he was lost. There is just one channel into salva tion and everlasting bliss: that way is Christ. My friend, you cannot afford to make a mistake in regard to your eter nal destiny. You can be sure of Heaven. The dominant note of the Word of God is triumphant certainty. Job said, “ For I know that my Redeemer liveth” (Job 19:25). The Lord Jesus said, “ Him that cometh to me I will' in no wise cast out” (John 6:37). Hear Him again declare, “Verily, verily, I say unto y<5u, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath [not will have] ever lasting life, and shall not come into con demnation; but is passed from death unto life” (John 5:24). Take again, the thirty-eighth and thirty-ninth verses of the thirteenth chapter of Acts:'" “ Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man [Christ Jesus] is preached unto you the for giveness of gjtns: And by him all that be lieve are justified from all things, from

untrue. Our believing dead are far above the first heavens. They cannot come to us until that blessed day when “those who sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.” And do you think that God would want us to bring back the saints who are happy in Him—to bring them back to this vale of tears? Have they not had their day of sorrow and of test ing? Now they rest from their labors. Why should we want to contact them? Is not the Lord Jesus Christ, our great High Priest, sufficient to meet all our needs, and to bear all our burdens? How Can One Go to Heaven? Surely what God has recorded in His Word regarding the endless delights of the glory land should create within every true and wise heart a desire to go to that happy place. But the question is, how? The Book that describes the city also shows the way. There is but one way, and it is open to all. In John 14:6 we read: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Christ is the Way. He is not merely the wayshower; He is The Way. Sin closed the gates of glory against every rebellious son of Adam. But through His death on the cross, Christ opened the way for every poor, defiled sinner to en ter, if he will, into the presence of a holy God — provided that one comes through “ the blood-sprinkled way.” The atoning blood of Christ is never forgotten in Heaven. In Revelation 7:14, 15, John describes a great multitude which he saw before the throne of God. When he asked who these individuals were, he was told: “ These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. “ Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple.” The word “ therefore” makes it clear that the blood of Christ, and the blood of Christ alone gave them title to stand before the throne of God. Christ died for our sins. He died, “the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God” (1 Pet. 3:18). Every unbe liever, in order to be saved, must take his place alongside the Lord Jesus Christ at Calvary, must acknowledge that it was for his sin that the Re deemer died, and must accept the salva tion that Christ’s death provides. Only through a definite acceptance of Him as one’s own personal Saviour is the way opened to salvation and to Heaven. There are those who mistakenly say it does not matter what one believes, so long as he is sincere in that belief. But if he is wrong, no matter how great the sincerity, the result is tragic. This is true in every realm of life. S E P T E M B E R , 1 9 4 9
