WORLD GOSPEL KINGDOM TRACTS
Unlocking the Mystery of Human Life
Now in those days John the Baptist appeared, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, Repent, for the Kingdom of the Heavens has drawn near. For this is he who was spoken of through Isaiah the prophet, saying, “A voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight His paths” (Matthew 3:1-3).
In this population throughout the earth there are countless, diverse pathological examinations and studies taking place including illness, disease and societal life styles. Although there are thousands upon thousands of pathological studies taking place on this earth, none of them can lead people into the pathway to God Himself!
Since the beginning of time there was only One pathway, One pathology—the Divine Pathology. The God-created man followed only God’s path, God’s Pathology. But one day the God-created man rebelled, sinned against God, and decided to take his own pathway which lead to the fall of man. This particular pathway always leads to sin, blindness, darkness and ultimate death. In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death (Proverbs 12:28).
I will bring the blind on a way they do not know; I will guide them in paths they do not know; I will make the darkness into light before them, and crooked things straight. These are the things I will do for them and will not forsake them (Isaiah 42:16). The Divine Pathology is full of light and truth which always leads to the path of life!
Additionally, the paths are all the inner sections of our being: thoughts, likes and dislikes, intentions, desires, decisions. If we compare the mind to a highway, we may compare the paths to small streets, lanes and roads. The highway and all the streets in our being need to be prepared for the Lord.
Are the highways and streets prepared for the Lord to come into you? If not, you need to repent to have a change in your mind and heart to prepare the way for the King to come in.
The Christian life is not a matter of theoretical doctrines for the mind to think about. It must consist of practical paths for our feet to walk on. If you repent, you will have a straight path for Christ to walk in you and with you by praying this simple prayer:
O Lord Jesus, O Lord Jesus, I need You as my Divine Pathology to lead and guide me into the path of life! I confess that I am a sinner with crooked pathways in mind and heart. I genuinely repent with my whole mind and with my whole heart to prepare the way for You to enter into me as the path of life. I genuinely repent to make Your paths straight and my heart right for You to enter into me. I confess and believe that You are God's only Way to save, the only Path of God that leads to life eternal. With genuine repentance I open my heart wide to You and give every way, avenue, lane, path and highway in my whole being to be made straight for You to enter into me. Through repentance, I prepare the way and turn my heart to You and receive You right now as my coming Lord and King for the Kingdom of the Heavens. Thank You for coming into me as the Divine Pathology, the only pathway that leads to life eternal. Amen!
“Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight” (Matthew 3:3). This verse reveals that John the Baptist was one who prepared the way of the Lord and made His paths straight. To prepare the way of the Lord and to make His paths straight is to change people’s minds, to turn their minds toward the Lord and make their hearts right, to cause every part and avenue of their heart to be straightened by the Lord through repentance for the Kingdom of the Heavens (Luke 1:16-17). John the Baptist prepared the way and straightened the paths. This indicates that the way was rough, full of hills and valleys. In some places it was very low, and in others it was very high. But John came and paved the way, leveling the hills, filling the gaps, and making the way smooth and flat. John also straightened the paths, which were full of curves. The fact that John paved the way and straightened the paths means that His ministry dealt with the mind and the heart.
Are your paths straight? Is your heart right and turned to the Lord? Are you willing to repent for the Kingdom of the Heavens?
Are you willing to repent that every avenue of your heart may be straightened for the Lord to come in?
The way, similar to a street, and the paths, similar to lanes, are a portrait of man’s heart with all its parts. To repent unto the Lord with our whole being and with our whole heart and to let the Lord come in is to prepare the way of the Lord. To allow the Lord to further occupy every part of our heart, including the mind, the emotion, and the will, is to make straight the paths of the Lord. Hence, to prepare the way of the Lord and make His paths straight is to change our mind, to turn our mind toward the Lord and make our heart right, that through repentance every part and avenue of our heart may be straightened by the Lord for the Kingdom of the Heavens (Luke 1:16-17).
Do you not have a rough way within you? Certainly the way in your mind is filled with many hills and valleys. Moreover, in the lanes of your thought, emotion, will, and desire are many curves. One day you said that your friends are angels, then the next day you said that they were demons. This indicates that your emotion is full of curves. All the paths within you are curved; nothing is straight.
Are your paths curved and crooked? Do you want to repent to make straight your paths for the Lord to enter in?
As human beings we are not simple. Rather, inwardly we are very complicated. Consider how many “streets” and “lanes” you have within you. Consider also how your mind is away from God and occupied with things of philosophy, entertainment and culture. How is it possible, then, for Christ to come into you? In order for Christ to enter into you, the way and the paths within you need to be prepared.
Are you willing to prepare the way for Christ to come into you to take possession and occupy you?
When John the Baptist came, he commanded the people to repent. Genuine repentance prepares the way and straightens the paths. Before I repented, my mentality was rough. But, through the Lord’s mercy, on the day of my repentance, my whole inward being became smooth. From the time of my repentance, every avenue, lane, and path in my being has been made straight. This is to prepare us to receive the Lord, to prepare the way for the Lord, and to make His paths straight. When many heard John’s word, they repented, and their way was paved and their paths were straightened. Therefore, the King was able to come in. This is true repentance. Genuine repentance prepares the way for the Lord as the King to enter in.
Are you ready for genuine repentance that the Lord may enter in?
Jesus said to him, I Am the Way and the reality and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me (John 14:6).
Christ is the Divine Pathology, the only Path, the only Way to God! In the Divine Pathology there is only one path of God! Only in this Divine Pathology is the path that leads to life and even the path of life!
Are you willing to repent and receive Christ as the Divine Pathology that leads to the path of life?
The gospel is not merely an objective matter, for the gospel is actually Jesus Christ Himself as the embodiment of the living and true God. As such a One, He is waiting for you to open to Him so that He may come into you. However, your mind is occupied and filled with many things.
Are you willing to drop your pre-occupations that fill you and open for Him to come in? He is still waiting!

THE WAY OF SALVATION
The way of salvation is not dependent upon man’s improvement, because “death” cannot be improved. Sin must first be judged, and then there can be the freedom from death which comes through sin. This is the salvation of Jesus Christ.
Let us walk becomingly as in the day; not in reveling and drunkenness, not in fornication and licentiousness, not in strife and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to fulfill its lusts.
Romans 13:13, 14
