Return unto the ancient paths that the LORD of GLORY may come in. Come and let us reason together MY beloved, though your sins be as scarlet as you return, you can begin again.
I have established ancient landmarks in your lives, so you may know you can return and find your way again and not be lost and be in flux wandering aimlessly. I AM the compass of your souls the way where healing water flows.
You are not bastards whose destinies lie in the pig pen of life, but sons in whom all things belong to you. Return unto the lover of your souls and be restored, for in MY house is MY covering, MY signet and covering for your feet.
I have prepared a table for you in the presence of your enemies. Be not afraid but believe and return MY beloved for at MY right hand are pleasures forevermore. Righteousness and justice are always the foundation of MY throne. Mercy, loving-kindness and truth always go before MY face.
You have not understood MY ways or MY love for you. You have thought that MY ways were too hard and too complicated. Am I an ostrich to put My head in the sand and quickly forget and run away from you?
Am I a neglectful Abba to forget the labor wherewith I birthed you and raised you to become all that I have destined you to become? Yea, man may forget you, but I say I will never forget you for you are always on MY mind and tattooed on the palm of MY hand, you are ever before ME.
Though you go through times of great trial and pain and it seems like I AM not there, MY WORD never fails or returns void. You will fail, but I will never fail you. Even when your own heart condemns you, I AM greater than your very own heart and know all things. I will never leave you MY beloved or forsake you; I AM nearer to you than when you first believed.
Seasons come and go and winter seemingly makes you look dead and man abandons you, but your roots grow deep and the sap goes deeper still until the springing up of the sun and the warmth of the heat and where the dry branches broke off in those places I bring forth new life again from what appeared to be dead.
For MY ZOE’ life works in you to live and do MY good pleasure. For I AM the resurrection and the Life! I AM the restorer of the breach and vindicate you to those who would judge you, declare you as false and bury you as a dead man.
The cross that you carry is not too heavy for MY yoke is easy and MY burden is light. Why then are you exhausted and burdened with many things when I have chosen you to enter MY REST.
I AM the good Shepherd who leads you besides still waters, who makes you lie down, and restores your souls. You cannot accomplish what I give you in your power, you must learn to rest in ME and yield to MY power and stop striving.
Many will continue to strive and many will finally learn to Rest in ME and KNOW it is not by might or by power but by MY SPIRIT says the LORD of HOST. It is those who learn to wait upon ME that mount up with wings as eagles and run and not grow weary and walk and not faint.
Many of MY people are frustrated and worn out through works of the flesh which will profit you nothing. Unless I build the house it will not stand says the Lord. You can only lead others into liberty to the degree of liberty you walk in. I say walk in the perfect law of liberty that shall set you free to be says the Lord.
The former tyrants that held you captive are dead. Why do you try to resurrect a former way that I abolished. These former things are but powerless ghost and they cannot rise and come back. You have seen them and saw their outcome.
How can you return to a system that only brings bondage says the Lord? Every memory of them and trace of their pride shall perish. Pride shall not stand in MY Holy Mountain, but those I look to are those with a contrite heart and who tremble at MY WORD.
The simpleton believes every word he hears, but the prudent man looks and considers well where he is going at all times! It is not a king, priest and prophet that one must consider for leading, for I the LORD made the way for all to come into the most HOLY PLACE by a NEW and Living Way.
Be quick to hear ME says the LORD, slow to speak and slow to wrath, for out of the abundance of your heart your mouth shall speak. Take hold of MY strength and make complete surrender to MY protection and make peace with ME! Yes, make peace with ME says the LORD of HOST!
I AM with you forever says the LORD so REST in ME and walk in the GRACE of MY finished destiny for you says the LORD.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
