…is mentioned many times in Scripture.
I implore everyone to go through each passage that has the word ancient in it.
I have offered up a few here to begin with.
You may be surprised to also find Who is also called Ancient.
(For those who are unaware)
Besides the old men, besides old ways, there are several passages that hint at Ancient wisdom,
however it may not be what you may initially believe.
The ancient and honourable,
he is the head;
and the prophet that teacheth lies,
he is the tail.
Anyone who reads scripture regularly should automatically know who the Head is.
And the people shall be oppressed,
every one by another,
and every one by his neighbour:
the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient,
and the base against the honourable.
*Many will say a child will disrespect an elder…yes, this is also true, however the deeper meaning reveals that the Child…(Born of YHWH) will behave himself Proudly against the Ancient (YHWH).
Modern day rebellion against YHWH- is a problem of phenomenal proportion!
Tell ye, and bring them near;
yea, let them take counsel together:
who hath declared this from ancient time?
who hath told it from that time?
have not I YHWH?
and there is NO Elohim else BESIDE me;
a just El and a Saviour; there is NONE BESIDES ME.
*Modern worship includes idols of many names, faces, crosses, many arms, incense burning, candle lighting, different religions each have their statues etc. People will behave unruly, rashly and rebel against the very words they claim to defend by following modern day teachings and altered ancient teachings.
Because my people hath forgotten me,
they have burned incense to vanity,
and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths,
to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;
*This should be self explanatory, but for the newer in understanding, incense burned in censers during liturgies, modern day preaching, partying in cut stone churches with steps, preaching feel good versus the inevitable truth and many more dishonorable ways. Many who are into the occult burn incense as well as many in churches. See the connection?
Thus saith YHWH,
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
*Modern Christianity, Catholicism, Judaisim, Orthodoxy and all religions. Each Mock YHWH! No matter how pure they may appear upon entering, the adversary has tainted every corner. Hence we must seek the face of YHWH and solely YHWH.
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face;
my heart said unto thee, Thy face, YHWH, will I seek.
With the ancient is wisdom;
and in length of days understanding.
*Once YHWH confirms to the seeker the many wrongs inherited by our ancestors, a greater understanding will take place upon obedience to His Word.
In summary, the ancient paths, the ancient wisdom to be sought out is not being adhered to during modern times. Though there are several religions based on ancient ways, as man has progressed through generations, temples and churches must heed the call of the almighty dollar to keep themselves alive. Due to this, within some true teachings are also new ways to keep memberships growing throughout all religions of the world. Thus altering the simple laws of YHWH.
No servant can serve two masters:
for either he will hate the one, and love the other;
or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve YHWH and mammon.
We all know that YHWH does not ever change, so why have His ways been altered to tickle modern man’s ears?
Remember this, the adversary has worked for thousands of years to insure the Children of YHWH stumble. To insure they will fall and be guilty of false worship. The adversary was there from the very beginning and has a great hatred towards humanity. A grand jealousy. So for one who has such resentment for us, why do so many insist on following the paths of destruction verses the path of wisdom? I tell you this! Because the adversary has come before them as an angel of light. For few test the spirits and instead run with the feel good warmth that satan loves to give.
We, modern man, have been born into deep trickery and deception. Born into the inherited lies of our ancestors who thought it wise to change dates, times and ways. Yet YHWH states loudly, do NOT do such things.
My son, fear thou YHWH and the king:
and meddle not with them that are given to change:
For their calamity shall rise suddenly;
and who knoweth the ruin of them both?
For I am YHWH, I change not;
therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
And here is the warning for those of us who DO follow the old ways and seek Ancient Wisdom
And he shall speak great words against the most High,
and shall wear out the saints of the most High,
and think to change times and laws:
and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time
It is up to the individual to seek the truth of our Creator.
It is up to the individual to choose, with their Free Will, the altered ways of man or to choose YHWH.
It is up to us to share the warning of Jeremiah 8:8 and spark the interest into seeking the truth and tossing out the blatant lies being utilized as “Faith Preaching” today.
O Elohim, how long shall the adversary reproach?
shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?
When YHWH enters in, eyes and hearts are deeply changed. The tug of war that the adversary begins on the new seeker can be very intense and can easily thwart the reborn child of YHWH. For those of us whom have walked similar paths, we can aid others in their seeking. We must lead by example and not falter in our thinking because of peer pressure. For the weak will fall into the peer pressure tactics. It happens daily. The war is not beginning, it has been here for a LONG time. So grab your armour and keep marching forward!
Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
