- Day 60 -
Ask Where the Good Way Is & Walk In It
“‘For from the least of them even to the greatest of them, everyone is greedy for gain, and from the prophet even to the priest everyone deals falsely. They have healed the brokenness of My people superficially, saying, “Peace, peace,” but there is no peace. Were they ashamed because of the abomination they have done? They were not even ashamed at all; they did not even know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; at the time that I punish them, they shall be cast down,’ says YAHveh.” (Jeremiah 6:13-15)
“This is what YAHveh (the LORD) says [to us]: ‘Stand at the crossroads and look [we are at a crossroads dear friend, YAHveh is extending mercy to us while the writing is getting more and more etched on the walls]; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.’ But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ I appointed watchmen over you and said, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But you said, ‘We will not listen’” (Jeremiah 6:16-17 NIV).
When YAHveh gave His laws, He said, “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants” (Deuteronomy 30:19). “For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law [Torah] until all is accomplished” (Matthew 5:18).
“Hear, O earth: behold, I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their plans, because they have not listened to My words and as for My law [Torah], they have rejected it also” (Jeremiah 6:19).
We need to be studying diligently so that we will not be ashamed and naked thinking we have arrived, like the Laodicean church, in lack of nothing. When in truth we are blind, naked, unprepared, pitiful, and about to be spewed out of His mouth because of the arrogance of thinking that we are righteous in His sight. He is going to judge His people, and it begins in the household of professing believers. We were to be His witnesses, as Israel was, that YAHveh is the One true living God. YAHshua (Jesus) says, “Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of YAHveh will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it” (Matthew 21:43)—and we have not born its fruit! Judgment and blessings always come to the Jew first. The Jews have suffered judgment after judgment after judgment.
