Word by Doug Addison
This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16–17 NIV
The Lord is opening the “ancient paths” to those who want to go deeper in intimacy and higher in spiritual wisdom, revelation and understanding.
Your suffering and dark nights of the soul are coming to an end.
For those who want this, “… ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”
There is a season of rest coming but you have to battle to get into it.
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest. Hebrews 4:11 KJV
The Lord is calling people to step up right now and contend and battle for what is coming. As you come into agreement with the Lord and others in prayer, you can battle from a place of rest. The time of rest will come after first of January.
But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 NKJV
The Lord is sending you new supernatural strength and there is a major impartation of refreshment available right now.
What is the Ancient Path?
The “ancient” or old path in the Bible is revelation and understanding of things that have previously been hidden or sealed.
I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world. Matthew 13:35 NIV
The Lord is revealing and unsealing revelation wisdom that has been in the Bible all along, but suddenly it will make sense and apply to your current situation.
The Lord is raising up people who will be willing to take the “ancient path” and reconnect with the old way that is different than the popular messages that are being heard in the world today.
This does not mean that you go back to the old-time-religion preaching of hell and trying to scare people into conversions. Instead, the Lord is calling people to find a new sound and language to connect the Lord’s love to the generations.
