Introduction

Hebrews and the blood on the door.
We are like those Hebrews
called to “girt” our loin cloth
take up our staff
and begin the journey alone the righteous road

I) SOME WAYS ARE NOT THE WAY OF PROTECTION

not man’s way
Not God’s ways
but ways of Satan’s
He tempted Jesus with these words
he omitted “in all thy ways”
(NKJV)
10 For it is written: ‘He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you,’
he tempted Christ to step off the road that God had laid out for Him.
He does the same with us.
First, we should never presume
Satan ask Christ to assume God would protect him from His own disobedience
People say “I am saved, so I can do as I want”
Charles Spurgeon said “Beware of tempting the devil to tempt you!”
When you think you are not being tempted is when you are probably in the most danger of temptation.
Second, Don’t expect to be protected, if you choose sin over God.
No man falls into sin all at once
He slides little by little
small things, lead to bigger things
before he knows it, he is neck deep.
Illustration: Business - little lies leads to bigger lies
it maybe the custom to cheat a little
but theft is theft
Thirdly, God gives a choice, don’t expect protection if you choose the world over God.
(NKJV)
33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Fourth, No protection if you are willful
refusing to do as God commands
going left when God says go right
fifth, avoid false doctrine, no protection
ILLUS: poison
men want to jump into anything that sounds good.
like taking poison just because it is there.

II)SOME WAYS ARE WAYS THAT GUARANTEE PROTECTION

First, humble faith in Christ
“keeping to the safe road”
Second, being obedient to God’s rule
(NKJV)
19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Third, you are protected by way of Child-like trust in God-giving guidance.
Fourth, You are protected when in service of God
How can God get the most glory from you?
Fifth, You are protected if you separate from the world, and walk closely with God.

III) HOWEVER, SOMETIMES EVEN THE RIGHT WAY CAN BE DIFFICULT.

the right way can be like walking on stones barefoot.
the right way can be heavy with temptation
The lion and the snake will come
But God promises the VICTORY!
We have mysterious agencies watching over us
we don’t know much about the angels
except they follow the commands of God
We are each personally protectioned
the protection is everlasting
ALL THIS IS BECAUSE OF JESUS CHRIST
“the lowest employment is consistent with the highest enjoyment”
Charles Spurgeon
