The Highway to Heaven

“And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it. It shall belong to those who walk on the way; even if they are fools, they shall not go astray. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it; they shall not be found there, but the redeemed shall walk there. And the ransomed of the LORD shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” (Isaiah 35:8–10 ESV)

God will provide a clearly marked highway for his sovereignly elected redeemed and ransomed people.  This highway will be marked with a sign post called the “Way of Holiness.”  This highway leads to the presence of God; there will be no threats or difficulties on this road.  The redeemed will walk in gladness and joy; gone are sorrow and sighing, difficulty and hardship.  This is the restoration of the rhythm & rest found in Eden – in High definition.  This is when Jesus makes all things new, as they should be (Revelation 21:5).
