The Old Ways

Jude who was the brother of James wrote a letter to certain people who had drifted away from the faith that was common to all the churches.

Jude 1, 3-4: “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Jude is speaking here to some people who did not have the Spirit but had been baptized and were thus members of the church. In his letter Jude exhorted the churches to contend to the faith and to the doctrine, moreover, they were admonished to fight for this cause. Talking about fighting means that violence is involved. Some people might not like it, but we must hold fast to the teachings of the Apostles. We are called to fight for the faith, to defend it, to preserve it and to pass it unto others. Long time ago, God was calling His people to watch their ways because they were not working for their good. God recommended His people to remain on the old ways that He had taught them.

Jeremiah 6, 6-17: “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. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.”

Nothing has changed today. There is no modern Christianism and there is not such a thing as a modern word of God, a modern God or a modern savior. The way is clearly set but there are many who do not want to go through it. Walking on the old ways will give us the assurance that our souls will find rest.

The old ways, the biblical truths and the divine counsels that are full of promises have been progressively abandoned and finally forgotten until the dark period of the Middle Age.

In the year 1500 some men started introducing some biblical truth. They openly spoke against their previous beliefs and convictions. Each one of them held a portion of truth but there was still a long way to get back to the old ways because they had drifted quite far away from the biblical truths and from the Word of God.

It is only in the beginning of the 19th century that more light was shed in the darkness. Men and women earnestly desired to know God and the old ways. They fasted and prayed and God send down rain again. His Spirit came down once again and it was God’s answer to all those that sincerely desired to know Him. It is the Spirit of God that leads us into the whole truth and helps us to recognize it.

Without a doubt the greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit after that of the Apostles happened in 1901 and moved faster than a bush fire. This fire reached all those that were earnestly seeking after God and the old ways.

Men and women were filled with the Holy Spirit just as the Apostles and disciples of Jesus. They were filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and spoke in other tongues when the Holy Spirit fell on them. This message is still spread in the whole world and is still reaching to every nation because Jesus Christ will have a people composed of all nations. Millions of people have found rest for their souls. rw
