Ancient Paths - Subject Areas

JEREMIAH 6:16

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.

PROVERBS 25:2

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 salvation...in 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 -  http://www.biblescholars.org/2013/05/what-has-happened-to-the-church.html

"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."

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.

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.

Torah is the Ancient Path. Walked away from denomination abomination. I love Yah,s Truth. Testing the Spirit in all things. Thank you for Proclaiming.

Thanks Pete for your comment. I agree, we have to go where the Lord leads. There is so much of God's Truth that is not being taught in main stream churches.

Thank you for your wonderful comment Gabrielle! The Ancient Path is really just a return to the fundamental teaching of the Lord w holiness and love at its core

Gabrielle Riah | Reply 10.07.2018 13:43

Ancient path that the Lord God has been teaching us is to live a holy life on the basis of the law of Moses, Prophet, and Christ's teaching without partiality.
