THEME: THE ANCIENT PATHS
“In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”
-God speaks of the last days through His prophets, and we note that He teaches us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths, His ancient paths. We learn that Micah and Isaiah 2:2-3 are exactly similar and speak of the events yet to occur during the second coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Jerusalem temple having been destroyed, Jesus remains the source of all truth to all the tribes, tongues, peoples and nations. Hebrews 1:1-3 reveals that, “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.” It is through Jesus that we learn the law of love. It is through Jesus that we have the living word in our hearts that transforms us and enlightens us to walk in the light. It is through Jesus that we have redemption from our sins and sure hope of eternal life. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Him. It is then pertinent for each one of us, to return to the ancient paths, which is in Jesus Christ, so that we may find salvation for our souls.
Holy, Holy, Holy are You Lord God Almighty, Who was, Who is and Who is to come. All the peoples praise You Jesus, all the peoples glorify Your holy name is heaven and on earth. At Your name Jesus, every knee should bow; of those in heaven, on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ You are Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Every tribe, tongue, people and nation will declare that salvation belongs to You our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb. Only You deserve all our adoration and praise. Forgive us Jesus all our sins and grant us the grace to forgive those who trespass against us. Forgive us all the sins we have committed knowingly and unknowingly, sins of our family members, sins of our forefathers, sins of our leaders, sins of our nation and sins of the whole world. Forgive us merciful Savior and wash us with Your precious blood. Help us to submit to Your authority, to renounce every sin, to bow down our knees and worship You alone. You are the way, the truth and the life Jesus, teach us to walk in Your ancient paths that we may live with You forever. Train our hearts to renounce all evil and follow You. Train our hearts to love You and our neighbors, dear Jesus. Show us the path of life that leads to Your divine throne. Give us all the gift of salvation that we may rejoice always. Holy, Holy, Holy are You Lord God Almighty, Who was, Who is and Who is to come. Amen
