Once more, the topic, "a highway for our God", is based on personal knowledge sourced from my intimacy with the Holy Spirit and related Biblical texts, as he guides us into the truth concerning the forerunner, who functioned from the point of definite occasions in the wilderness. More below!

Reference: Isaiah 40:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

"A voice of one calling: In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken."

The first segment to be expounded by my humble self today is:

A voice of one calling: In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Let's bear in mind that these words are the details of Isaiah's prophetic utterances. So his living reality wasn't a wilderness experience. By divine inspiration, he prophesied concerning John the Baptist, saying: A voice is wailing, "In the wilderness, get it ready! Prepare the way; make it a straight shot. The Eternal would have it so. Straighten the way in the wandering desert to make the crooked road wide and straight for our God."

The sent man was screaming two expressions: Firstly, clear a path in the desert; Secondly, make a straight road for God's manifestation in the flesh, which will lead to His special "position of Kingdom authority" on earth. The metaphor common to both texts denotes an exceptional circumstance - the wilderness.

Beloved, if we consult the appearance of a wilderness and its inadequate sense alone, it doesn't seem to dignify the appropriacy of Christ's glory with regard to starting His earthly ministry as the true Son of God, because wilderness experience, to many people, is likened to sinking into the darkness of ugly situation. Yet this exercise will soon lead to God's purpose for the world of mankind, which is: "I will be your God, and you will be my people." Got it?

From the standpoint of my visual delight, when I delved into the imaginative reality of a voice of one screaming in the wilderness, I gained the personal understanding that his cry was a transforming mechanism rooted in a system of capturing the hearts of men and bringing their attention to an era of remarkable development and teachings of grace and truth coming soon, to correct the religious mindset and practices of previous historical method based on Levitical priesthood, which regulated past events as relating to human race.

So John the Baptist's unconventional approach in relation to his ministration to mankind came with an unusual ability, yet his approach served as an effective capability that inspired a knowledgeable awareness of an upcoming extraordinary divine visitation on earth - in the hearts of men.

The Bible says in the book of Hebrews 7:11, "If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood—and indeed the law given to the people established that priesthood—why was there still need for another priest to come, one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? For when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also" (NIV).

Beloved, a new Priest was about to arrive on earth, who would become a perfect Priest, not on the basis of a regulation as to His ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life. So the former regulation would be set aside because it was weak and useless (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope would be introduced by the new Priest, by which man would gain direct access to God. Therefore, there was indeed, a need for a forerunner.

To that effect, Luke 3:4 (NIV) reads, 'As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet: "A voice of one calling in the wilderness; Prepare the way for the Lord (the Priest), make straight paths for Him."' Stay tuned for part 3. Shalom!

Scripture Reading - Isaiah 40:3; Psalm 107:16; Isaiah 42:16; Isaiah 45:2.

Lord God, I thank you for your excellent way of making crooked path straight and rough places smooth, which governs the principles of my Christian faith, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
