I’ve shared in the past how important it is these days, when the kingdom of man is falling apart, that we look to God for the good way, even the ancient paths, and walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16 says …
Thus saith the LORD: “Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk therein.’”
With regard to this, the Spirit has had me almost continually focused of late on teaching people how to leave the familiar (and perhaps comfortable) ways of modern Babylon to walk in God’s rest, and by doing this perhaps even attain to a state of metabolic excellence. Some people are getting rather excited about this and are reaping many benefits. Others though, are getting a bit ornery, them seemingly not willing to suffer (a little) and make the necessary sacrifices needed unto the (quite dramatic) change.
Now MORE THAN EVER, beloved, we need to be able to let go of all that we think we may need or want, let go of our habits, our routines and our programmed mindsets, even let go of many things that we think may lead us to a life of ease and comfort (and even good health) so that we may walk in GOD’S ways – His ways that have been ordained for us to get through a world that is crumbling. With regard to metabolic excellence; the world is becoming MORE TOXIC not less toxic, and I’m beginning to believe that a fine tuning of our metabolisms and immune systems is something that is going to get us through what is ahead.
I’ve shared a lot lately about diet and nutrition and about getting away from food and habits which lead to degenerative disease, and these are things which have been given to me in response to my seeking the Lord for the way to go in troubled times. I’ve been told to “stand in the ways” (of the world) and “see” that the world’s way is not the way for us to go and I have asked for “the old paths” to be shown to us, for “the good way” to be revealed to us and I’ve been sharing what I’ve been getting. What is quite astounding to me is how people can be shown how to get free from the metabolic derangement created by our modern society to live in a largely upgraded way (and this with LOADS of witnesses from the Holy Spirit that the word IS coming from God), and yet they still refuse (and some quite vehemently) to “walk” in what is being revealed to them, self clearly prevailing over Spirit (this all has a whole lot to do with dying to self, by the way).
We “walk” down ancient paths, beloved, when we actually APPLY what we are seeing and are learning to how we live. By not applying to our lives what we are learning is like seeing the way which can lead us to the rest of our souls, but saying, “I will not walk therein.” For those who are interested in a little bit more about ancient paths and ways, this is something that I came across this morning, something which should be quite helpful to some of you. — D
