The Way To Paradise
"Paradise" once existed, on earth, until humans rejected obedience to the LORD and replaced it with the way of the deceiver, Satan, who has made himself into "the god of this world" in the minds of those who haven't yet begun The Process Of Conversion:
"4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. 4:3 But if our gospel [see The Gospel of The Kingdom of God] be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." (2 Corinthians 4:2-4 KJV)
"And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness"
When Christ returns, Satan is going to be put away where he can no longer use and deceive humans. The world from that time will awaken to the light, like flowers blooming in the morning sun:
"35:1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. 35:2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God. 35:3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you." (Isaiah 35:1-4 KJV)
The Holy Spirit will cure humanity's spiritual blindness and deafness in order that the Light may be seen and the Word of God may be heard.
"35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 35:6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. 35:7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of Dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes." (Isaiah 35:5-7 KJV)
The prophet John (commonly known as "John the Baptist") prophesied The Way to come: "3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight" (Matthew 3:3 KJV). Jesus Christ is The Way: "14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6 KJV). When He returns, the entire world will know The Way:
"35:8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. 35:9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: 35:10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away." (Isaiah 35:5-7 KJV)
