Yahuwah Elohim [the LORD God] declared, from the beginning, what is to come, and what will be at the end.
Yahuwah’s counsel shall stand forever, and none other.
He made His ways known from the beginning! Let us remember therefore, the former things of old!
Thus says Yahuwah [the LORD]: Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls…. (Jeremiah 6:16a)
This verse urges us to seek for, to look for and discern, to ask for the ancient paths, to ask for where the good way is, and walk in it!!
Then we shall find rest for our souls.
Yahuwah wants us to remember the ancient paths of old — the teachings, the statutes, and the judgments given to us, through His servant Moses (Malachi 4:4).
The teachings, statutes, and judgments of Moses are known as the Torah. The Torah is the bedrock, the foundation of the ancient paths. The Torah is where we learn how to walk in the ancient paths.
To walk in the ancient paths is to walk in Father’s way of life, mercy, and truth.
Oh Dear Reader! Let none of us be as those who reject Yahuwah’s Torah, who say ‘We will not walk in it.’ This is a grevious and fearful thing to say!
Father warns us many times and in many ways, that those who take no delight in His Word, who shun obedience to His Word, will not know His blessings, but rather His severe discipline (see Jeremiah 6)!
Yahuwah sent His Son to redeem us, and to show us His pathway, to show us how we are to walk in His footsteps.
It is through Yahushua Messiah [Jesus Christ] that Father establishes His covenant with us, whereby He gives us His grace (His enablement) to walk in the ancient paths:
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people. (Hebrews 8:10)
A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. (Ezekiel 36:26-27)
As these verses teach us, Yahuwah desires to give us a new heart and spirit!
A new heart and spirit is given by Yahuwah to those who choose to walk in the truth of His written Word. We receive this new heart and spirit when we become a new creation in Messiah — when we are born-again (John 3:1-8; 2Corinthians 5:17; Colossians 3:1-4).
When Messiah is birthed within us and His Holy Spirit is living within us, then Father begins to put His laws into our mind, and write them in our hearts. Our heart’s desire will be to learn Father’s Word for ourselves so that we can daily choose to walk in the ancient paths — to be obedient in the same way as our Saviour was. This is what it means to follow in Messiah’s footsteps, and to walk as He walked (1John 2:6).
The ways of Yahuwah are strength and life unto the upright (Proverbs 10:29)! His ways shine brighter and brighter as we walk in the truth of His ancient paths. And His Son, Yahushua Messiah, is the doorway to walking in Father’s ancient paths.
Yahushua told us to come unto Him, because He is ‘The Way’ to the Father:
Yahushua Messiah said: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)
Yahushua Messiah said: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30)
The Ancient of Days (the Judge of all) is coming soon.
Let us therefore, be among those who are walking in the good way! Let us never forget, but always remember! the ancient paths.
