The Way


Isaiah 33:1-36:22

“And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness, the unclean shall not pass over it. It shall belong to those who walk on the way; even if they are fools, they shall not go astray. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it; they shall not be found there but the redeemed of the LORD shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” Isaiah 35:8-10

In Luke 14:1-6 we hear Jesus say, “”Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Jesus is the highway to heaven, paved with His blood and His Holiness (not yours). The unclean shall not pass over it, because the moment you step onto it you are made clean, holy, pure. Those are the effects of His blood; you can not touch it and not be made clean. Even if they are fools, they shall not go astray because He is the good shepherd who tends His flocks and keeps them in safe pastures. He leads them beside still waters and makes them to lie down in green pastures. His rod and His staff they comfort us because He uses them to direct our steps, even when we think we are the ones making the plans. No lion or ravenous beast can come up on it because no one can separate us from the love that is in Christ Jesus. The redeemed of the LORD shall return and come to Zion with singing, everlasting joy shall be upon their heads, they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Those who have chosen to follow the Way have been made holy, they know the Father, they have access to His Holy Spirit, they know the Truth and have Life. Those who have chosen to follow the Way have been made clean through the blood of Jesus which declares you righteous through faith in Him. For those who have chosen to follow Jesus, even when we make foolish choices God somehow makes them work out in our favor in the end. “All things work for the good of those who love the LORD and are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 Those who follow the Way are held safe in the palm of His hand away from the clutches of Satan and His minions. Those who follow the Way are redeemed by His blood and will return to heaven singing all the way causing the darkness to flee from their path.
