"The way of holiness"

In the Scriptures we read, through the exalted thought of Isaiah, "And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness." Prior to this prophecy, Isaiah has given a description of the wilderness and the solitary places, which shall be made glad because they are to be transformed and made to blossom as the rose; the thirsty lands are to become as springs of water, so that all flesh may see the glory of the Lord. In this vivid picture, which presents a joyful heralding of the coming of Christ's kingdom on earth, the eyes of the blind are to be opened, the ears of the deaf unstopped; the lame man is to leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb to sing.

In the fullness of time, when Christ Jesus came on earth and performed his marvelous works of healing in fulfillment of ancient promise, he opened the way of salvation for all mankind who would listen, understand, and follow the teachings of the great Exemplar. But alas, this way, which had cost the Master so much to present to humanity, gradually became obscured through the dust of creeds and dogmas, until at the end of about three hundred years the Christ-method of healing the sick and the sinning by spiritual means alone was practically lost to many succeeding ages.
