No one can come to the father except through me.” Meaning that the only way to not end up in Hell is to except Jesus Christ into your heart.

In 1 Samuel 21:12 reads: And David took these words to heart, and greatly feared Achish king of Gath.” It was David's fear of Saul that prompted him to flee to Gath to seek protection of the Philistines in the book of (1 Samuel 27:1).
