Way Points; Exodus 13:21

And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night;  Exodus 13:21 RSV

If The Way is where God wants you to go, how do you know if you are going the right Way?

During that very unique time in history, The Way was known because God led his people from a (thunder) cloud that was like a pillar reaching to the ground. At night the cloud was as a flame of fire that gave light to them.

The Way (DEREK in Hebrew) is the journey with Elohiym

The Way (DEREK in Hebrew) is the journey with Elohiym

I am convinced that the leadership, perhaps even the people, had a basic knowledge of Torah from the days of Seth, Noah and Shem. They knew it well enough to know who was Righteous before God and who was walking in wickedness. I do not think the people of Noah’s day would have been shocked to know that they were not walking in The Way. They were probably horrified when they realized (too late) that there really are consequences for a life lived outside of The Way of God.

In our day we “walk by faith and not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7

If you have been following these Way Points, you already know that I believe that faith is from the Hebrew word ‘amen, meaning we affirm that Torah is The Way that we are to conduct ourselves before God according to His instructions. We who believe follow Father Abraham’s example to live our life as an ambassador of God. We HALAK (walk or live as someone in a covenant relationship with God through Y’shua-Jesus) before Him. Genesis 17:1

Can you live that Way by reading your Bible? Let me answer by saying that one of the best students of Torah once came to Y’shua-Jesus to talk to Him about life. To this well educated man, this teacher of the Word of God Y’shua said, “You MUST be born again.” John 3:3 ff

Study all you want, but until you are born anew, you will not belong to the Kingdom of Heaven nor to the King. Let me be blunt. Unless you are born again you are not a Christian, you WILL NOT go to heaven or be protected from the soon coming wrath that believers in the east are already experiencing. What do you want to do about it?

We who are born again HALAK -walk by faith, by ‘amen to the Word of God. That is The Way of life. A glorious day is coming when those who are born again will see Y’shua-Jesus face to face. But for now he guides our Way with his Word and Y’shua IS the Word of God made flesh. Matthew 28:20. He is always with believers. Is he with you? What do you want to do about that?
