Ancient Paths - Subject Areas


Thus says the Lord, “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths,
Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls.


It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter.

 John 5:39 (Amplified version)

You search and investigate and pore over the Scriptures diligently, because you suppose and trust that you have eternal life through them. And these [very Scriptures] testify about Me!
The ancient path is the narrow way that leads to life. It is the path that leads away from the traditions of men and worldly priorities to focus on the original, timeless patterns and truths of God’s Word. Netivot Olam is the Hebrew for Ancient Paths. It was a cry by the lamenting prophet Jeremiah to seek the way of their forefathers. We hear that same cry in our day - the Spirit of God calling us to return to His ways. 

So we have to ask ourselves, how much is the truth worth to us?  Are we willing to follow His ways even when it is opposed to everything we've ever been taught in school, at home or even in church.  In Matthew 10:37 Jesus (Yeshua) says:  he who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.  The scripture also says to work out your own other words, we are the ones that are ultimately responsible for what and who we follow. 

The following is an exerpt from an article written by Dr. Roy Blizzard that captures the idea of Reclaiming the Ancient Paths very well -

"I am not interested in being a Protestant. I am not interested in being a Catholic. I want to be part of a living, dynamic, organism that operates in power and with meaning. I want to emphasize something before you misunderstand what I am talking about. Restoration is never going to be accomplished on a denominational level. It can only happen on an individual basis. If you are in the Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Church of Christ, or whatever denomination, restoration can happen. It will happen as there is an increased hunger and desire on the part of God’s people for true factual information. It will happen as individuals begin to ask questions about their religious beliefs and test them against linguistic, cultural, and historical facts. The good news is that it is probably already happening to you.  We are beginning to see individuals, groups, and even congregations coming together with the goal of becoming a living, dynamic, organism as described in the Biblical text. In order to do this, we have to lay aside all of our denominational concepts and go back of Protestantism, back of Catholicism, back of gentile theology, right back to the historical situation in the 1st century. There, we find a Jewish body of believers operating in a dimension unknown in our churches today."

Hebrew word rest = Margoa is only mentioned once and in Jer 6:16 ancient/Olam/eternal path. How different is Margoa rest to Shabbat rest?

If you follow the little white rabbit down the hole, you will find the truth. It's yours to interpret for yourself. Is the church true? In some ways yes.

I appreciate your comment Brian but I can't agree with relativism. I'm a firm believer that there is only one truth...and Yeshua is His Name.

The truth is relative. It is unknowable. We as humans are incapable of comprehending the truth l.

Your statement of a little white rabbit rings of being impudent. Perhaps you should rethink the idea of what truth is.

The LORD gave me this WORD last night. He simply said, "I AM restoring the ancient paths. This led me to search the Scriptures. I found your article. HALLELUJAH

Thank you so much for sharing the Word you received from the Lord! He speaks to the hungry and thirsty...Proverbs 25:2. Study the Lord’s festivals Sister!

it goes back to the beginning. They waited in the upper room. They all got in one accord and the Holy Spirit fell and salvation by grace began the church.

Amen Sister! Heavenly Father help us be of one mind and one heart, United in purpose and vision in these last days. God bless you and yours.

What is the article? But again, to have three separate Personalities in one being is not reflected in God's creation. Romans 1 says the Godhead can be seen

21.05 | 06:57

The Father is the invisible God who robed Himself in flesh (son). 1 Tim. 3:16 The Holy Spirit is Christ within us not a separate person. Colossians 1:27

21.05 | 06:51

Yes in John 14:26 he says that but then in John15:26 turns rt around and says: "whom I will send from the Father". Man is spirit, body and soul but one person

Thanks for your comment Glenda. This phrase was spoken by Jewish bridegroom's. Yeshua identified himself as the bridegroom of Israel. See wedding customs articl
