Micah 4: The Mountain Path
"Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in Thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore"
After the first humans foolishly chose to follow the wrong prophet (see Where Did True and False Prophets Originate?), humanity, in its delusional Satanic state, has created many ways for itself that feel so right (see Decadence In History And Prophecy), for a while, and seem so right (see Iniquity In History And Prophecy), for a while, until those wrong ways deliver them to the end of a dead-end street. On the other hand, the right one (see Which Way Is Right And Left?), there one truly right way - the LORD's Perfection has no need for more than one path to deliverance.
"7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." (Matthew 7:13-14 KJV)
The path of the right way is a consistent teaching of the Holy Scriptures. It's what the true Gospel is all about (see What Gospel Did Jesus Preach?).
"16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." (Psalm 16:11 KJV)
Following the right path also has the practical benefit of keeping one off the wrong paths. Truth cannot be compromised or adulterated.
"4:14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men." (Proverbs 4:14 KJV)
The true prophets of the LORD were always feared and hated because of the Truth that they spoke (see Why Were The Prophets Of Truth Hated?).
"30:9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: 30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: 30:11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
The true prophets of the path to life were also consistent in what they spoke. It's what made them true prophets.
"4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
Fact Finder: The Law of the LORD is described as a "Mountain." What and where are the "valleys" around the Mountain?
