Straight and narrow path sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri

I drew and painted in watercolors this sketch, then re-painted it in acrylics, all today for the purpose of illustrating a Bible verse. It is written,that JESUS said "enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction; and many there be which go in therein; because strait is the gate and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life; and few there be that find it. " Matthew 7:13, 14, King James Holy Bible. In the U S [my native country where I live] there is the political concept that "tolerance" of sin is the way to blessings. But it is not. Read Deuteronomy chapter 28 for how to get blessings [and curses]. I painted this sketch trying to show the strait and narrow path to heaven. The handrails on the rough hewn wood are similar to The Bible, to guide you. If you follow the path and hold onto the handrails, you will get to heaven when you die from the earthly realm according to New Testament especially the book of Revelation.

If you avoid the path to heaven, when you die you are sent to hell, also according to scriptures in Revelations.

When you lose your way, pray and ask GOD to make straight your path. The scriptures that say HE will do that, are from Psalms 5:8: "Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make Thy way straight before my face." GOD will not lead you to hell, if you obey HIM; but HE won't stop you from going to hell if you disobey HIM.

Another verse that seekers of heaven should learn is from Ezekiel 45:1, 2, KJV, as written, "Thus saith THE LORD to His anointed...whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates and the gates shall not be shut. I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight.." And another verse you should know is from Matthew 3:1-3, as written; "In those days came John, the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Ju-dae-a, and saying 'repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet E-sa-ias, saying 'the voice of one crying in the wilderness: prepare ye the way of THE LORD, make His paths straight'. "

The mission of words that WORK has always been to glorify GOD. The mission has not changed. It means words that WORK for the glory of GOD. My purpose today with this blog post is to present a visual of the way JESUS said to get to heaven. i.e. on the straight and narrow path set by GOD in the commandments, laws, statutes of GOD as written. JESUS said : " I AM the way, the truth and the life; no man cometh unto THE FATHER [GOD] but by Me. " John 14:6, KJV.

If you serve , obey, pay homage only to the world, you will gain hell as your final place to spend eternity. IF you obey GOD and follow HIS instructions, HE will lead you to heaven. Read The Bible from cover to cover the way you would read any book, and it makes perfect sense to you.

words that WORK was begun by me Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia in 1993 in the state of Georgia. I have continued the mission of it every where I have lived since.

I,Gloria Poole, currently residing in Missouri but born in state of Georgia, sign my name as Gloria because it is my given-at-birth name on oil paintings and complex, time-consuming sketches and sometimes my full name of Gloria Poole on other sketches. I am also known on web as: gloria-poole; gloria.poole; gloria_poole; gloriapoole1749; Gloria on art I have created and posted to my blogs; G-L-O-R-I-A on domains I owned for about 6 years before they were stolen by cyber-criminals and on; and as gloriapooleRN at yahoo; Gloria Poole,RN; gloria0817; gpoole817; Poole, Gloria; Ms. Gloria Poole; and other variations of my real, born with, legal name of Gloria Poole. I removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at the time of final divorce decree from [male] DBP in Arapahoe County, Colorado in Oct 2007 after 4 years of marriage, and I resumed my maiden name. I am white, single again [divorced twice] Christian, woman, and the natural mother of two grown daughters who are Jennifer and Leigh. I am also an artist in all mediums and post art I create to my blogs. [ See ; and also for some of the art I created]. I am also a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri; a citizen journo; writer, author of children's book, [in process of getting published but is complete] ; a photographer, and a tweeter.

This sketch is lop-sided on my easel but I tried four times to correct it. I think the fact that it is in 1 of my sketch books that is well-worn makes it sit lop-sided ; but I stand lop-sided also. Also it is acrylics on paper in a 9x 12 inch size. And I tried to show the path to heaven as surrounded by beauty and peaceful environment. I omitted from sketch the trials and temptations JESUS warns about.
