Excerpt From Newsletter
You see, God’s thoughts are not our thoughts, and His Ways are certainly not our ways. I didn’t say that; the Prophet Isaiah did. You can find it stated in Isaiah 55:8–9. However, the Truth of what Isaiah said is illustrated by the fact that the first message opened is not the first message one must understand in order to come to a knowledge of the Truth of the Scriptures. The third message—“The Light”—is. That’s the message I have been explaining on The Next Step tapes.
The remarkable thing about the first three messages hidden in the Hebrew Scriptures is the unique way in which they complement one another. The first message—“The House”—is an overview of The Teaching. It tells us in a nutshell what God said. The second message—“The Way”—adds to that survey of the Truth by providing a historical record of how God has worked in history by repeatedly making sure men have had opportunity to hear His message concerning “The House.” So the second message is essentially an explanation of what God has done among men.
The third message—“The Light”—tells us why God continually made “The House” message available as “The Way” that sinful men could become what God desires them to be. That is, it explains the significance of what God has said and done in history. That information is absolutely essential to your understanding of the first two messages. That’s why I have been explaining it on The Next Step tapes.
It is becoming increasingly clear to me that it is impossible for anyone to fully understand the first two messages unless they first understand the third message. Yet I have no idea when I will be able to make that message available to everyone in printed form. However, since True Believers must understand that message before they can understand what God is seeking to accomplish in their lives, I’m certain God has a specific plan in that regard.
