5/25/12 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear (Regarding those who have recently written letters in the name of The Lord)

Thus says The Lord: The young men of this flock have not discerned, but strive always to attain that which they do not understand. Yet I have indeed called to them, behold, I have called them by name, that they might draw close and serve Me, even as My hands and My feet, aiding My servant in the blowing of this trumpet. Yet they are no mouthpieces, nor have I called them to this office. Yet sons they remain.

Therefore, this is what I say to them: My sons, draw back your hand from the page and place your pen back on the table, remove your fingers from the keys, and make no effort to operate within the gift of prophecy. For upon you this gift is not bestowed, nor have I marked you with My signet.
Beloved ones, search the Scriptures so you may know, read My Letters that you may understand: What is a prophet, and by what means is he called.[1] For the cup of The Lord is a heavy burden, full of tears and sorrow, a bitter cup filled with suffering and persecution. My sons, are you able to drink of it? I tell you the truth, you are not at all able. Behold, even Timothy fled as Jonah, fleeing in both heart and mind, lest he drown in his own tears. Yet I strengthened him and he returned to Me, willing to drink once again. For I tell you, you do not know what you seek, nor do you understand. For the weight of this burden is very heavy, a path heavy-laden with tears and blood, death and destruction on every side.

Thus I ask you once again, are you able to drink of this cup?
Are you able to bear the full weight of this burden?
It is not My will that you do so, says The Lord...

Therefore come close to Me, My sons,
And abide here at My side until the time,
For that which I have prepared for you is close at hand...

Behold, you shall be met with much rejoicing
In the house of The Lord; each at their time appointed,
Each in their due season...

Says The Lord.
