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. Jeremiah 6: 16
The purpose of this site is to give a clarion call to all the members of the Body of Christ to enter into the rest that God so desires for each one of us. This is only possible if we look towards the ancient paths, which beckon us to follow the footsteps of Christ, each one carrying his cross and denying himself daily. These are paths that demand absolute faith in the Lord. Faith; one of the most treasured virtues of the saints of old, seems to be a lost gift in the current modern world that demands instant results to be successful. The prophetic words of the Lord rings so true, "Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18: 8).
These are paths of suffering. We can never expect to be perfected without sufferings. We can never expect to learn obedience, without sufferings ('Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered' - Hebrews 5: 8). We can never expect to understand the will of God without having an attitude to suffer (And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left - Isaiah 30: 20, 21)
These are paths that encourage us to wait on the Lord in hope. Again it seems to be true with most of the saints today, that we are ready to do everything for the glory of God, except wait patiently on Him. Somehow, following the rules of this materialistic world, which puts a high premium on those desiring to see instant results to be successful, the saint seems to have lost touch with one of the greatest character building tools that God used in perfecting His saints, which was none other than waiting on the Lord.
Ancient Paths are the ones that keep us deeply rooted to the Word, helps identify ourselves with the eternal purpose of God in our life. Treading these paths will keep us safe from the snares of the enemy, who is always prowling like a roaring lion, seeking whom to devour. Especially at a time when many, who call themselves as believers are being prepared for a great apostasy as prophesied by Paul in 2 Thessalonians 1:3 (KJV), "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition". Jesus mentioned about the false prophets and false Christs who, if possible, will try to decieve even the elect, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect" (Matt 24: 24). Already there are scores of such false prophets, false teachers and false Christs and they have already brought many damnable heresies secretly and unsuspecting and undiscerning believers are going in great numbers to listen to their words, since many of these men and women are very well known figures in the Christian world of today.
It is hoped that anyone who visits this site, will once again be encouraged to apply his spirit, soul and body to move in the direction that will give him/ her the rest for the soul. And it will be by finding those OLD PATHS!
