In All Your Ways Acknowledge Him


God is the Leader(Pr 3:6). 
He created those whom He would lead: man. 
He made the place from which He would lead: the universe. 
He sent the Leader: the Only Begotten Son. 
He prepared the place to which He would lead: 
The true haven, the Father’s house. 

Faith is acknowledging that He is your Leader. 
The life of this faith is acknowledging Him in all your ways to be led by Him. 

A “leader” is someone who directs through commands. 
While on earth it is your father, teacher and king, 
There is only one leader who leads you to heaven: 
the Father in heaven, i.e., Christ. 

Though he was created to be led by God(Ge 2:17), 
Adam was deceived and sinned. 
Consequently, he was banished from the Garden(Ge 3:23-24) 
To never leave the universe, i.e., Hades, 
The first heaven and the first earth, reserved for fire(Is 14:12-15; 2Pe 3:7; Rev 21:1), 
Prepared for the devil and his angels(Mt 25:41; 2Pe 2:4; Jude 1:6). 

To lead man out, however, God sent Moses to: 
1. Bring out the offspring of Israel(Ex 3:10); 
2. From their slavery in Egypt(Ex 13:3); 
3. Lead them into the land where milk and honey flowed(Nu 16:14); 
4. Through the desert(Dt 8:15); and 
5. Lead them their path with the pillars of fire and clouds(Ps 136:16). 
All but Joshua and Caleb who left Egypt 
Fell and died in the desert because 
They grumbled against the way that God lead them(Ex 15:22-24, Ex 16:3; Nu 21:4). 

There was still no rest for them even after they entered Canaan(He 4:8-9) for 
That land was not their final destination and 
They were then led by the Law(Ex 19:4-5). 

The tablets inside the ark of the sanctuary 
Reminded them that God was their Leader and 
As long as they followed His commands, He would lead them to rest. 

The Law was, however, yet another temporary leader 
Since it was just a tutor that lead men to Christ(Gal 3:24). 

Jesus said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days”(Jn 2:19), because 
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body, 
He would lead souls to the Father’s house(Jn 14:6) for 
He is the Word that was with the Father in the beginning(Jn 1:1, Jn 1:14, Jn 1:18) who 
Came as the Christ, the true leader(Mt 1:16). 

Jesus rebuked the rabbis, the Pharisees(Mt 23:2) for 
They were blinds blind leading other blinds(Mt 15:14, Mt 23:16) as 
They could never go beyond the boundary of the Law. 

As He died, the veil in the Temple tore and 
Jesus said, “It is finished”(Jn 19:20), declaring that He: 
1. With His own precious blood entered the Most Holy Place, the Father’s house 
(He 9:12; 1Pe 1:19); 
2. Condemned the origin of sin(1Jn 3:8); and 
3. With His blood redeemed souls, and tore His flesh, bursting open the boundary of the law of sin and making a way for souls to be led to the Father’s house 
(Jn 14:6; He 10:19-20). 
The Father raised Him and Jesus entered heaven first as the High Priest(He 6:20). 

The Holy Spirit comes in the name Y’shua and 
Leads His children to the Father’s house by 
Commanding and teaching them. 

Faith is: 
1. Acknowledging that Jesus is Christ, the heavenly Father(1Ki 8:33); 
2. Being led out of the slavery under the devil, of sin(Rm 6:17-18); and 
3. Being led to the Father’s house in heaven(Jn 14:6). 
The men of the Spirit acknowledge that 
They are children of God(Rm 8:14-15) and 
Know that He leads them into path that they do not know for they are blinds(Is 42:16). 
Therefore, even though that path is difficult and narrow(Mt 7:13-14), 
For they are watched over by the Father in all their ways 
They follow Him wherever He goes(Rev 14:4), and 
Finally, they are led by the Lamb to the springs of living water(Rev 7:17). 

O Father, 
It was You who led me to this point. 
Let me and all those You have given me 
Not walk off or be eliminated from this path. 
Lead us until we arrive at Your house! 
Amen.
