Abide in the Doctrine of The Messiah
From Letters From God and His Christ
6/28/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
This question was asked of The Lord: Lord, how can I convert the sinner from his ways, and bring him the Good News and your warning, if I am to remain separate?
Thus says The Lord: I have spoken, yet those of hardened hearts refuse to harken to My voice. I have written it with parchment and ink through the prophets, behold, I have etched My words in stone with My own finger, yet who has received My message? Who has obeyed My Word, as it is written?! I tell you the truth, only those fully converted in their innermost parts have accepted My message, and only those who truly love Me obey My Word. For they remain in My love and delight in My Commandments, knowing I AM WHO I AM.
So then what of all these smoking firebrands who surround you, who do always rebel against Me in word and by deed? Hypocrites! Shall My children profess to know Me with their lips, and then go and sin before My face in that self-same hour?! They do continually transgress, neither do they abide in the doctrine of The Messiah! For I tell you the truth, all He is, all He has spoken, even to all that is written of Him in the Scriptures of Truth, even in all these Letters, is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Therefore is it not the reasonable service of those who say they are My people, to walk in His ways and obey His teaching?
Beloved children, to abide in the doctrine
Of The Messiah is not mere proclamation or belief;
To abide in His doctrine is to LIVE by His words!...
A shining example of righteousness,
Striving to be like The Messiah in all your ways,
That all those close to you, even to the passerby,
May see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven...
For it is written, one does not live on bread and water alone,
But by every word spoken by the mouth of The Lord your God...
So then do not just give voice and teach,
But ABIDE in the doctrine of The Messiah;
By example shall you lead them.
Beloved, did you think you could change the hearts of the afflicted by human power? Human power is of no use at all. I soften the hearts of the seekers, crack the hearts of the insolent and harden the hearts of the wicked. And what of you, Timothy? Have you, yourself, saved even one of these thousands who have turned to Me, by your own doings? Did you author all these words? Did you give the newly redeemed understanding? Did you pour out your own spirit upon them? Timothy, have peace; I know your heart. Yet I will continue to make you an example to the people.
Beloved, all of Timothy’s apparent success in the conversion of these thousands, and soon to be many ten-thousands, is answered in one word: Obedience. He has obeyed My voice. I gave him the seeds, he planted, and I brought forth the increase. So then how shall you change even one thought or action of those you love, by keeping their company? Beloved, how shall you teach the blind? What words will the deaf hear? Can you heal the tongues of the dumb? I shall teach them! And if they forbear, I will rebuke them, I Myself shall abase them.
Behold, I have not come to make peace, but war, a great division, families in derision; parents against children and children against parents, sibling against sibling, friend against friend. Your enemies will be those of your own household and kindred. For I am The Lord, and MY Word stands. Neither is there any change, whatsoever, in My vesture... As I have always been, so I am, and tomorrow the same.
Therefore, as it is written:
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.
For what fellowship does righteousness have with lawlessness?
And what communion does light have with darkness?
And what accord does The Messiah have with belial?
Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever?...
Beloved, kick not your foot against the stones;
You will only limp away wounded by the effort...
You shall go where I send you...
Says The Lord.
