Jackson Browne. What a musician! He delved deep with his 1978 song, “Doctor My Eyes” (YouTube). Read the lyrics here.
I have done all that I could
To see the evil and the good without hiding
You must help me if you can
– Jackson Browne; “Doctor My Eyes”

With “The Barricades Of Heaven” song, Browne seems to acknowledge that he himself could not get past all the barriers that keep us from ever reaching Heaven. He himself was on the outside, the outskirts – “the barricades of Heaven where I’m from”.
Better bring your own redemption when you come
To the barricades of Heaven where I’m from.
– Jackson Browne; “The Barricades Of Heaven“
It actually is not possible to “bring your own redemption” to the Meetup down the road, per the Bible. All our redemption schemes are fails. Only Jesus brings true redemption. We are redeemed through Jesus – bought with a price.
Why only Jesus? Because Jesus was the God of Heaven, and He came down to earth to bring us redemption. A much better line would be to say,
“Better bring Christ’s redemption with you when you come”.
People go just where they will
I never noticed them until I got this feeling
That it’s later than it seems
– Jackson Browne; “Doctor My Eyes“
Got that feeling these days? “It’s later than it seems.”
Better be ready. Jesus said “the end” is near.
So, God sent His Son into the world. Do you know why?
Flesh and blood absolutely cannot inherit the Kingdom of God
What God has going on with us here on this planet
Legally Damned – Legally Forgiven
Christ secured our eternal home
Heaven! What’s it going to be like?
Are You Ready, Steady and Able?
Are you ready to meet your Maker?
Bought with a price – the blood of Jesus
Only God’s Way Leads to Himself
The End …as Jesus predicted it
