Reflection. Holiness as the beginning of the Path and not an end, on Isaiah 35 (NIV). By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator

Prophecy of Isaiah, about the Messiah to Judea:

1The glad the wilderness and the dry;
    the wilderness will rejoice
    and blossom as the saffron.
2 flourish and rejoice:
    Will shout for joy!
It will give the glory of Lebanon,
    and the splendor of Carmel and Sharon.
They see the glory of the Lord,
    the splendor of our God.

The arrival of Christ would bring new strength to the weak:

3 Strengthen the weak hands,

    steady the knees;
4 say to those with fearful hearts,
    "Be strong, do not fear.
Your God will come,
    will come with vengeance;
with divine retribution
    come to save them. "

Also announced a time of miracles and healings, wonders all pointing to the Messiah:

May the eyes of the blind shall be opened,

    and the ears of the deaf unstopped;
6 the lame leap like a deer,
    cry of joy and the mute tongue.
For waters shall break forth in the wilderness,
    and streams in the desert.
7 The burning sand shall become a pool,
    the thirsty ground bubbling springs.
The haunts where jackals tended,
    They will be home of reeds and papyrus.

The announcement of the new birth of believers:

8 Will there be a highway

    to be called the Highway of Holiness.
Not travel by it unclean,
    or transit through fools;
    It will be only for those who follow the path.

Those who go by the way, any demonic attack overtake:

9 No lion shall be there, no,
    nor wild beast to pass through it;
There will not be found!
    For there will only redeemed!

Only the born again can enter the Kingdom of Heaven, to the New Jerusalem:

10 And again rescued by the Lord,
    and come to Zion with songs of joy,
    crowned with everlasting joy.
The obtain joy and gladness,
    and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

The theme of this post is the Way of Holiness:
No travel for her impure, can not enter those who have not experienced repentance.

Or transit through fools; No walk by him who knew how to do good, insist on doing evil.

It will be only for those who follow the path. It will be only for those who walk according to the Word of God, not according to their wishes, or tradition or dogma of his church, only in relation to the Word.

The Way of the Lord, like everyone else, has a beginning. And Scripture clearly says is necessary to enter repentance from acts that lead to death, something basic and fundamental (Hebrews 6.1). But today the theme of holiness is taught as a goal, something to reach the end of the road, making this a religious issue, when the Bible says is the beginning.
