Let me share with you my take on what God showed me about this scripture, to possibly help you or others. Jesus was perfectly clear about what he was saying and did not mix his words. What he said should and will change the lives of people everywhere. Let me show you what God said to me in a dream.
First of all, let’s break down the scripture. Notice that this particular verse starts with “I am”. That is the same name God used to describe himself to Moses. Exodus 3:13-14. Jesus being part of the Triune is in fact the I AM. Jesus then gave us the WHO. I am, the Way, I am the Truth, and I am the Life. Then Jesus gives us the WHY! No one comes to the Father, except through me. Meaning, unless you have Jesus you will not see the Father.
Let’s break this down even farther. “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. You probably don’t notice it because it took God to show me, but there is a definite in that short sentence. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. (period) The definite in this statement, is the period, nothing else and nothing more, just plain and simple PERIOD. The next definite is found at the end of the statement, no one comes to the Father except through me. (period) Both of these statements end the exact same way and are not up for discussion. Jesus is the WAY, Jesus is the TRUTH, and Jesus is the LIFE period. No one comes to the Father except through ME period.
This is what God showed me and it made me really stop and think. There is no other way and in fact the Bible tells us that as well. Acts 4:12b, there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. What name? Jesus! Why? Because he is the WAY, the Truth, and the Life and the only way.
Then God showed me and told me to tell everyone that if they want to see the Father they first have to surrender their lives to him. They need to ask Jesus for forgiveness. They need to accept him as their Lord and Savior. Finally, they need to have a relationship with him. Then they will be saved and then and only then will they see the Father. So, you see it is extremely important to accept Jesus.
One example and I will stop. If you have loved ones who have gone on before and they had that relationship with Jesus and you want to see them again. In order for you to go where they are, you must have that same relationship they had or you will not enter through the gates of Heaven. No, well I go to church a few Sunday’s a year, or I am basically good and I do good. None of that works, only a relationship with Jesus. “I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME.”
