12/17/09 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship
For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Addendum to “Come to Me; No More Time to Tarry

This question was asked: What does it mean when The Lord says to stop judging His Word?

Thus says The Lord: Beloved, the time of testing this Word has passed, yet you test Me still. How is it you have yet to discern? For I have indeed opened My mouth to speak, and through My prophet I have spoken to this generation, for I shall surely set all these crooked paths straight. And behold, My every word convicts, bringing all who hear My words into subjection, for My every word is law. Thus it has also become your judge, testing the quality of your works, revealing the strength of your trust and that upon which you have built your faith.
Yet you sit still, pushing out the hand when My words oppose your will, holding fast when My commands shake up the status quo to which you have grown accustomed. I have already told you, that only those who fully embrace Me and obey My voice are given the right to be called children of God. And only those who receive the love of the Truth are set free. Yet you judge My Word and seek always to find fault with My prophet, that you might somehow be loosed from these bonds, as though the Way of The Lord was akin to shackles and chains. Beloved ones, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but only the children abide forever. Therefore if The Son sets you free, you are free indeed, as it is written.
It is written also: Do not speak evil of one another. For whoever speaks evil of a brother, or judges a brother, speaks evil of The Law and judges The Law. But if you judge The Law, you are not a doer of what The Law says, but a judge. Thus in the same way, one who speaks evil of My messenger and judges My prophet speaks evil of Me and judges the Word. And one who judges the Word will by no means obey it, but have set themselves up as an authority, a judge, held captive by their own evil thoughts.
Again, one who refuses My messenger can by no means receive My message, and one who judges him has blinded themselves to the Truth. For there is none righteous, no, not one. Yet The One who sent the message is true. Thus the one who delivers My Word must also be its recipient, or how shall I send him? And all those who judge can do nothing and shall receive nothing; even that which they have shall be taken away. Therefore what I have written stays written, and what I have spoken stands.

For the time of choosing has come, all shall be sifted;
Even by this Word shall it be accomplished, a great division!...

For as it is written:
I did not come to bring peace, but a sword...

Says The Lord.
