Awake, All You Churches of Men
From Letters From God and His Christ
5/23/06 From YahuShua HaMashiach, He Who Is Called Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord, your Redeemer: Remember My words: If I go and prepare a place for you, I will surely come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am you may be also... Beloved ones, if I have so spoken, how is it you do not believe Me?
I tell you the truth, I AM COME! I have come already, and shall also return! I shall gather My elect, and come on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory! Yet you of this world do not believe My words, neither do you know Me. Beloved ones, how is it you do not understand My speech?! Behold, I proclaim it through your own kindred and countrymen, in a familiar tongue, yet you refuse to hear; for you can not bear to listen! For your hearts remain far from Me, married to a world of unbridled sin, lost people caught up in a deluge of lies, false truths called science and religion which deny My name and steal from My glory!
Beloved, I AM THE TRUTH, which was born into the world to testify! And behold, I testify once again. For by My servants I speak, and through My chosen vessels I put forth My Word, once again. Yet you of this world will in no wise hear Me! Behold, even you who dwell in the churches of men reject Me, for you refuse to accept Me as I truly am!... Woe to you, therefore! Woe, I say to you! Woe to all who reject The Word of The Lord and hold fast to the doctrines and traditions of men!
Thus says The Lord, to all those who call of themselves Christian: Beloved, do I live in you? Do you even know My name?! For I tell you the truth, you all sleep, you all slumber! You lie down in beds filled with man’s conceit, overlain with purple and scarlet! Behold, you rest upon a broken cornerstone, a false foundation, a corrupt way, as you continue to build up high walls with untempered mortar! - Church after church, denomination after denomination, walking always in the commandments of men!... YOU HAVE WROUGHT IN VAIN! For I tell you the truth, your every church shall come to nothing; every house devastated, all denominations brought to ruin! FOR I DO NOT DWELL THERE!
Tear down all you have built up in My name,
For yourselves, of yourselves, to your own glory!
Tear it all down, and begin again in ME! Says The Lord...
Obey My Word as it is written, cast off all YOU have written,
And walk no more in the way set forth by the founders!
Stop giving heed to all these corrupt doctrines and filthy traditions,
Passed down to you by your forefathers!...
Break up this fallow ground!
And sow no more among all these briers and thorns,
And I may yet receive you...
Says The Lord.
Churches of men, shall you proclaim God’s will?! Do you have My understanding?! Have you spoken by the mouths of the prophets throughout the generations?! Tell Me, have you saved even one of My people from death?! SONS OF MEN, WERE YOU CRUCIFIED FOR ME?! I DIED FOR YOU!... Humble yourselves, therefore; offer yourselves upon the altar! Beloved children, crucify your lives in this world, and come out from among them! Only then shall you begin to know Me, only then shall you begin to see Me as I truly am!
Beloved, follow Me as I am, and not as you would have Me be. For I alone am your Teacher, I alone am your safety in the Time of Trouble. For most assuredly, I say to you, you do not know Me, neither do you have any love for God in your hearts. For those who love Me follow Me, and walk in My ways and keep My Commandments. And those who have truly received of Me have made their lives into a living sacrifice, to My glory!... Therefore, do not wait, beloved ones! Do it now! For the Day of The Lord is at hand, and behold, the Great and Terrible Day is coming quickly!
Therefore, I ask you, where do you stand? Who do you live for? By whose blood are you established in life?!... I AM THE SOURCE OF LIFE! LIVE IN ME! Do not just say you know Me, abide in Me! Eat, breathe, and move in Me, bearing fruit in kind; in everything you do, glorify your Father in Heaven! Honor Me not just with your lips, but in all your doings, a living faith producing works worthy of repentance. For he who honors Me, honors He who sent Me.
Yet you dishonor Me, nor will you obey My teaching,
For you have altogether hated the sound of this Trumpet;
Behold, you have become lovers of pleasure
Rather than lovers of God, a lawless people!...
YOU ARE ALL AS LUKEWARM WATER!...
Therefore, I must spit you out,
I must leave you desolate!...
Refinement in the Day of The Lord!
Thus says YahuShua, The Messiah, whom you call Jesus and Christ: Churches of men, hold your lamps up, so I may behold your faces! Shine your lamps on your houses, that I may behold your good works, all these grand works you boast of in My name. For I have heard your raised voices, saying, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonderful works in Your name?” Yet most assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you! Your lamps have gone out, and you have nothing at all with which to relight them; neither are you willing to go out and receive from those I send, for you do always offend. Thus you shall remain in your darkened houses, folding your hands to sleep, until destitution overtakes you and scarcity drives you out. For I have purposed disaster upon every house of worship, until every church is torn down and every denomination is left in ruins!... Therefore, come out of the churches of men, and embrace The True Light and receive of the pure oil! Says The Lord.
Beloved, how long shall I wait for you? How long will you put Me last, as one who is made to wait in an outer room? How long shall you pollute My Sabbaths and forsake My Holy Days?! HOW LONG SHALL YOU DESECRATE MY NAME AND THE COMMANDMENTS, IN THE NAME OF GRACE?! Beloved, follow ME, walk in MY ways, and forsake all these commandments of men! For I dwell not in any church made by human hands; I dwell in the hearts of men! I live in those who love Me and obey My commands; I abide with those who continually seek Me and long to know Me as I truly am... I dwell in the temple of God made by HIS hands!
Therefore, beloved, come to Me in sincerity and in truth, return to your First Love! Begin again in Me and walk in the first works! Embrace The Word of God anew and bring forth works worthy of repentance, that you may truly be born again; yes, be born again in spirit and in truth! For there is only One Way declared by The Father, Only One Truth Absolute, Only One Life without end! I AM HE!
Therefore, awake, all you churches of men,
And listen to the sound of this trumpet!
Be wide awake and very sober, pay close attention,
For the mouth of The Living God has spoken!...
Escape to The Father’s house!...
Says The Holy One of Israel.
