I Am Calling You Out
From Letters From God and His Christ
8/19/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Little flock, and you, the small of My flock, hear My words and give heed to My speech, says The Lord... Beloved, drink deeply from My cup and be filled, that you may know The Loving Mercy of God; taste of My tears, that you may understand.
For thus says The Lord your God, The Holy One, your Life: Beloved children, I am calling you out, and from the midst of this world I am drawing you out; and lo, some of you have given heed already. Yes, even I am calling you out from the midst of your countrymen, from the midst of your peers and kindred, from the midst of all who dwell upon the earth... That you may be separate, that you may be set apart in truth, a lowly people who wait upon The Lord with joy and trembling, a flame, a light, a beacon shining in the midst of thick fog and encroaching darkness, until I come. Yet My people do not come out, nor are they willing to stay separate. For they do not hate the company of evildoers, and at the table of the wicked they sit at ease. Even among this little flock are some who remain unmoved, holding their cup, sighing.
Beloved, The Lord your God has shown you The Way! Even I have provided this lamp for your feet, lest you should stumble in the darkness and fall into a pit! For the darkness descends, thick darkness gathers, and is about to cover the earth! Thus in My mercy I have placed a beacon in the midst of this desolate land, a light which shall reach even to the ends of the earth. Behold, I have forged for Myself a silver trumpet, and placed it in the hand of My watchman. For the flames of the people flicker, and are about to go out; and the winds of deception do not cease, but have only increased by measure in all the earth. And oh how easily My people are led astray, how easily they give heed to every wind of doctrine, to every false expectation and arrogant assumption; they are continually led away! For none have truly discerned, nor are they able! They turn away in their hearts, and within their minds they have departed.
My beloved departs from Me,
She cleaves to the breast of another,
For the way of The Lord she has not known!...
Therefore My tears flow down, and My face is wet with grief!...
For I have called to My well beloved, yet I hear no answer!
I have lifted up My voice to My people, yet who has come out to meet Me?!
In My zeal, I stretched out My arms to gather them together,
Yet few have assembled before The Tent of Meeting...
Few have given heed to the sound of this trumpet!
For there are many who claim to serve Me, there are many who say they are My servants, a great multitude who claim they are My people, yet are not My people; for they do not observe justice, neither do they seek to do what is right! For I have surely looked upon them, I have set My gaze upon all who call upon My name, I have searched and passed through. I know the thoughts of My people, and the hearts of My elect are known to Me. For I am God, very close at hand... Thus I shall purge My people and set apart My elect, I shall surely sift and separate the people; I shall cause a great division in all the earth! For I am The Lord.
Therefore, thus says The Lord: I call to My beloved, to all who have ears to hear, I call you to depart from this world in thought and in action; to reveal your love for Me by all you say and do, to put your love on open display; to rest in Me on the Sabbath day, and receive of My blessing; to honor My Holy Days, and remember, that you may also understand; to hold fast to the Holy Covenant and no longer depart from the word of My commandment.
Yet among you, I see some who turn not their foot away from doing their own pleasure on the Sabbath Day, the day which I made for you and called you to remember and keep holy... Beloved ones, did I not sanctify the seventh day from the beginning?! Did I not write The Commandment by My own finger, and make it a perpetual covenant?! Yet the churches forsake My Commandments, and do not honor My statutes. Even among this little flock are some whose faith has begun to wane, who depart from My ways and continue to work on the Sabbath, who do their own will on My Holy Days... Thus those who forsake My Sabbaths have revealed who is first; let them depart. Even with many tears I command them to depart My table, says The Lord, that they may go their own way.
Thus says The Lord: My people lack knowledge and do not understand; My beloved shut their eyes and do not discern; their ears grow dull, and they have forgotten how to listen. They turn from what is most needful, and do not choose what is right... Behold, upon a cracked reed they have placed their trust, they lean heavily upon a way which is not good. Therefore their way shall crumble before them, their reed shall break; and they shall stumble, they shall surely fall, and the heart of this people shall be pierced. Therefore My eyes are full of tears, My heart is heavy with grief! For the cry of mourning is heard at noonday; great wailing breaks forth in all the earth! For the wound of this people is grievous, their affliction most severe.
Yet who shall plead their cause in the Day of Calamity?!
Who shall bind up their wound?!...
For they have rejected all healing medicines
And turn away from the remedy;
Those they followed have abandoned them,
And their trusted allies do not seek them out...
Thus even the most upright among them shall fall;
For the highly exalted shall be brought low,
And the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled,
When The Lord God comes to shake the earth mightily!...
For as it is written:
The Day of The Lord of Hosts shall come upon everything
Proud and lofty, upon everything high and lifted up,
And it shall be brought low!
For thus says The Lord God: I have surely set My face against the generation of My wrath! For the people have made lies their refuge, and under falsehood they have endeavored to hide themselves! Behold, they have made a covenant with death, and with the grave they are in agreement!... Yet it shall not stand! Says The Lord. For I am He who speaks in righteousness and am mighty to save! For in the midst of great calamity I hear, and from the midst of terrible judgment My arm is able to deliver, even a great remnant of whom The Lord shall call!
Therefore, thus says The Lord to His little flock and to all those who have ears to hear: I call you to consider, little flock, to consider deeply and now see with greater eyes. For I have blessed you in a way few have regarded, nor have any seen the like since My apostles walked with Me in Israel. Indeed, I have opened My mouth and spoken to this generation through My prophets, I have revealed secrets and made My plans known, for I do not change, says The Lord... Behold, My way is prepared before Me, as I set all these crooked paths straight!
Yet who has truly considered, and who is able to comprehend? For there are none who realize, there are none who understand. For My people walk about as one heavy with sleep, as one caught up in the midst of a dream, unable to perceive whether they are awake or sleeping... My people are dull, they are heavy with sleep, yet I shall surely awaken them! Behold, I shall cause the hearts of My people to skip a beat, and the hearts of the multitude shall thunder in their chests!
For thus says The Lord God: As My prophet of old, to whom I said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before The Lord”, so have I called out My beloved from the midst of this wicked generation, so shall I call out the remnant from the midst of thick darkness, from the midst of thick clouds and darkness! For The Lord God shall pass through, and a great and terrible wind shall tear into the mountains and break the rocks in pieces! The earth shall be shaken violently, and fire shall scorch the face of the whole earth!... Therefore, woe to those who do not give heed to My words and mock this trumpet! Woe to those who turn away from My voice and shut their ears to the quiet utterings of My spirit! WOE TO ALL WHO REFUSE TO COME OUT!
Oh My beloved, do you not love Me?! How is it you take no pleasure in My Sabbaths, and turn your face away from My Holy Days?... Beloved, I am married unto you! You are the desire of My heart! Have I not prepared your way before you, that you may come to Me?! Have I not prepared a place for you, that you may be with Me where I am?! Yet when I look upon you, I see only lukewarm children, a dim light, a lamp whose oil is depleted, a flower of the field quickly fading.
For in your youth I knew you,
When you came forth from the womb you were Mine,
And in your early years you remembered Me and knew My face...
Yet now My beloved hides her face from Me,
Under the darkness of the veil her countenance is concealed;
For her heart is far removed, and the way of The Lord she has forgotten...
When I look into her eyes I do not see of Myself,
My glory has departed...
The beautiful ones have all gone away...
Darkness covers the earth.
How long shall My people treat Me as one who is made to stand afar off, as one who must wait in an outer room until called for? How then shall the dull in hearing hear My voice?! How shall the hand of the weak clasp the hem of My robe?!... Beloved, you have lost your grasp, yet are unaware! Your feet have become entangled amongst briers and thorns, yet you have made no effort to loose them! For who can endure the Day of The Lord?! Who is able to stand in the Day of Judgment?! Who, in all the earth, is able to pass through the fiery furnace unharmed?!
Hear now the word of The Lord, little flock; perk up your ears and listen, all you who call on His name; for the mouth of The Lord your God has spoken: Behold, there is a day coming quickly, a day and hour which remains unknown to you, in which I will call you to stop what you are doing, that you may come and worship Me. I will call you to keep this day holy, and you shall do no work, and it shall be to you a Sabbath... And lo, it shall also be fulfilled a second time, says The Lord. On this day, I will call to you through My prophet, and you will come out and worship Me, each in your own house, set apart, with your beloved set apart. And in each household shall it be decided, it shall surely be revealed: Who among you loves Me more than these, more than themselves, more than this world. Yet those who fail to come to Me, without condition, even all those who refuse to come out, their ears shall grow dull and they shall be unable to hear, neither shall they escape.
For I am The Lord, and this is My will: That one whose flame burns hot, whose love for Me runs deep, now display their love for Me openly. And that one who is neither cold nor hot depart from Me, until the time comes and is fulfilled, that by great distress their flame is stoked and becomes a great fire, glaring in the eyes of the passerby, shining in the midst of the cold dark night... A warm heat drawing others toward it, even all those who shall seek to be warmed by it; yet at the same time singeing others, even to the point of death, all those who sought to destroy it.
For I search the heart, says The Lord; I alone know the mind. The thoughts of My beloved are known to Me, and the plans of the wicked are not hidden from Me. Behold, I look upon the innermost thoughts, I am aware of every hidden intention. For I am The Lord, He who separated the light from the darkness; from the beginning, I am He who formed it and brought it into the light. Thus pretense is not at all becoming a servant of The Lord, neither is the world a garment which My elect shall wear.
Beloved, strip yourselves naked, cast off these filthy robes!
Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean!...
Turn away from this world, and come to Me!
Yea, lay yourselves upon the altar,
And become a living sacrifice unto The Lord!...
The planting of The Lord,
A pleasant plant set in the midst of My vineyard...
My beautiful ones grafted in!
Yet My beloved are held captive and seek not the way of escape. Indeed, those within the churches of men say, “We are delivered!” Yet they are not delivered, for they have no knowledge, nor will they receive correction; they cleave to a false way and worship a graven image. They are battered and they are bruised, yet they do not come to Me that I may heal them!... Behold, they are like the swift dromedary, who runs to and fro in the desert. Who can control her when she is in heat? Indeed My people appear docile, yet they can not be tamed, neither will they sit still! For My children are stubborn and will not lay down; they refuse to be broken!
They are strangers, yes, they are strangers and go after them! They love the voices of strangers and embrace strange doctrine! They cleave to foreign traditions and practice abomination in MY name, for they have not known Me! Says The Lord... How long shall My beloved wander in desolate places?! How long shall they strip the fruitful field bare and pollute the living springs of water?! The innocent are destroyed, and the earth is forsaken! The cities of men are a harbor for every foul and detestable bird, a nest full of every kind of evil; great wickedness dwells there!
Therefore the earth shall rise up against the sons of men, and nature shall break forth in its fury and fight against them, until all in the earth grow weary and the heart of this people is torn... A rent which is deep, a rent made wide! The earth shall shake and rumble from beneath, the cities shall break apart and the towers shall be toppled, and the glory of man shall be utterly broken down!... Behold, the blood of the slain shall cry out from the ground, and the blood of the innocent shall be remembered, when The Lord God strikes the earth with plague and famine and the waters turn to blood! For the generation of God’s wrath shall be shaken, the generation of His fury shall be broken without hand! Behold, the storm is already overhead, the whirlwind breaks forth from the midst of the clouds! SEEK SHELTER! For the hand of The Lord is turned against the sons of men, and the arm of The Lord is stretched out against the inhabitants of the earth!
Therefore, thus says The Lord: Beloved, I have spoken to you firmly, and with a stern voice I have declared the controversy of The Lord; with a multitude of words and unending mercy, I have spoken and shall continue to speak. For I am The Lord, I change not; I do what is right, I alone know what is most needful. Thus I have called for a right heart within My servants, and I require My people to walk in My ways without reservation, yet no pure works follow. Yes, I have called for works befitting a servant of The Lord, yet the works of My disciples last only for a moment, then quickly pass away... Works done out of obligation, works without trust, fruitless endeavors performed for the sake of pretense, in a vain effort to keep the door open! For My people have not known Me, neither do they have any love for God in their hearts; self-preservation is their only concern!... BELOVED, AWAKE! Awake from your slumber! Awaken your hearts to The Majesty on High! Embrace the full revelation of WHO I AM, of all I have done! For The Word of The Lord flows like water, My love runs pure! Therefore embrace My words and receive of My love, that it may flow from My heart through yours, that you may be filled with My spirit to the bearing of much fruit in The Beloved!
Therefore hear and understand, receive of this word and write this wisdom in your heart, for upon these words does all life, all knowledge, and all truth rest, even by which all things consist: I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE! And this is pure undefiled love, the only means by which The Law of The Father may be fulfilled: You shall love The Lord Your God with ALL your heart, with ALL your mind, with ALL your soul, and with ALL your strength; and yes, beloved, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. For this is to walk in Me, this is to abide in Me, the only true religion in which is life. For apart from this is only enmity and rebellion against God, the ways of the world and the evil one, darkness of faces, bringing forth much pain and death, a multitude of tears and heavy sorrows.
It is high time that My servants learn to walk in My strength, for the day is far spent. It is time for those I am sending, to drink deeply from My cup and receive of My spirit fully, that My grace may cover them as they prepare My way before Me. Let all others fall away, let the obstinate depart and the lukewarm pass to the wayside, until that which was planted at the first takes root, and that which was sown in the dry and cracked ground is watered once again. For I am coming quickly, and I shall surely call out, and the first of many shall be gone from this place! Behold, I shall reveal My glory and the power of My strength, and The Word of The Lord shall speak! Desolations shall continue until the consummation, and the hidden treasure shall appear out of the ground! Like gleaning grapes, or as grain left behind by the reapers, so shall I gather the remnant in the day of grief and desperate sorrow!
For I am The Lord;
I know what is most needful, I alone do what is right...
And though I afflict, I will also heal;
And though I strike the people in My wrath,
I will also bind up their wounds...
Behold I shall bring the kingdoms of men to utter ruin,
And make the face of the whole earth desolate;
For I AM HE who shall create new heavens and a new earth,
In which justice shall run down like water
And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream...
For as I have spoken, so shall I speak; as I am, so shall I be...
Says The King of Power and Glory, The Only Lord of Hosts,
The Holy One of Israel.
Thus says The Lord: O beloved, how quickly some of you turn outwardly to look for meaning, when the answer remains within you... One Love, One Way, One Truth, One Life, One Consuming Passion, the only means by which you shall escape.
Beloved, where I am My works follow and are made plain, for all good things come from Me. And that which has a veneer of goodness, yet did not come forth from love, is not of Me... A lie, dead works performed in pretense, by which one has attempted to impress others, that they might receive praise from men and approval among their peers; when in truth it is only themselves they have deceived, covering over a wound which remains unhealed, even that same wound which I received in the house of My friends.
