The old paths, the good way…that is what we are to seek. Prosperity? Power of self? The best life? What does YHVH REALLY want us to have? A humble spirit, a heart that is broken and crushed, obedience and a love for His Way and His Commands. He wants a people who are TRULY set apart to Him in every way.
We cannot seek our own way and His Way at the same time. One has to be dominant and one has to set the path and course by which we live. His Way should BE our way, His Path should BE our path. We can convince ourselves that our own path is His Path, but that does not make it so and it does NOT lead to a good end.
12 There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
He sent His Prophets time after time to warn His People. They pointed out their transgressions to them and told them what was coming if they did NOT change what they were doing. Is YHVH still warning today? There will be two witnesses who will continue to warn right up until the end. How many will listen?
How many will return to the old paths, the good way? The warning is still going out and do NOT believe that it has ceased. He still has His Servants who are sent to warn…we just need to recognize them, listen and take heed.
Do NOT be like those rebellious ones who follow their own path, who stop up their ears and refuse to hear…
16 Thus said יהוה, “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves. But they said, ‘We do not walk in it.’ 17 “And I raised up watchmen over you, and said, ‘Listen to the sound of the ram’s horn!’ But they said, ‘We do not listen.’
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
