Refinement and The Day of The Lord
From Letters From God and His Christ
12/11/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Call of Themselves Christian, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord your God, The God of Israel: My anger is kindled against you, O churches of men! For you have not harkened to My voice, and to My words you have not listened; you do not heed the words given to My prophets of old, nor of this day. Shall I then reward you for your disobedience, simply because you are called Christian? My children, I have sent many in My own name, putting My words in their mouths; and behold, I am sending 144,000. Yet you scoff and reject them, yea you persecute them on account of their words... Therefore, O disobedient generation, who call of yourselves Christian, you are given up to refinement and shall pass through the fire, even the fires of The Last Week; you shall not be gathered! There shall be great wailing and gnashing of teeth.
And so it will come to pass: Those who would be first shall be last, and those who were accounted as last shall be first. For every man, who thinks himself righteous, shall be left. For there are none righteous, no not one, not one person or church; all is vanity and pride, vexation of spirit. For I have already told you that I require of you humility, a complete forsaking of your wills, walking in faith, abiding wholly in the doctrine of The Messiah. Yet all you men in the churches abide in your own doctrine, walking always in religion, and not in faith. For not one of you obeys God in truth!... I tell you, all religions shall fail! Not one shall persist! For The Salvation of God is nowhere to be found in the religions of men; nor shall one find Me in any denomination or church! Thus all your attempts to hold onto your self-righteousness are in vain! For every bitter and perverse doctrine of men shall be burned up in the Day!
My children, Messiah’s church dwells within Him, and He dwells in the hearts of men. This is where My Son has rebuilt the temple which has fallen down. Yet you seek outwardly in the world for fulfillment, mixing the things of the world with the things of God, polluting pure worship with the abominations of the pagan and the heathen; altogether desecrating My name and My glory, as you continue to segregate My Word in an effort to maintain your own way.
Therefore, be separate! Says The Lord of Hosts, your Redeemer. Come out from among them, and follow Me! My servants, bring nothing with you, for I abide not in any church made with human hands. Why do you not understand My speech?! For I tell you the truth: Those who love anyone or anything in this world, more than Me, are not worthy of Me; and to be a friend of this world is enmity with God, as it is written... Stop stifling The Spirit!
Know you not, that to celebrate and worship Me, in any way contrary to the Scriptures, is a desecration of My name?! And to mix anything I have given you, with the things of satan, is an abomination?! My children, come out of her! The harlot has deceived you! And you willingly commit adultery with her, reveling in all her fornications... Therefore, you are given up to judgment, refinement in the Day of The Lord! For I shall indeed correct and discipline you! Behold, with a strong rebuke and an outstretched arm I shall humble you, and tear down all your whitewashed walls of abomination!
You have forsaken Me!
You have joined yourselves to another;
A false image, an abomination, another Jesus!
And in the way of the harlot you walk!...
Thus I must bring My hand against you, that you may be humbled,
That you may be broken atop The Stone,
For by no other means shall you enter into My rest...
Beloved, if I do not leave you to refinement,
Assuredly, I say to you, you shall never enter in.
For you are a very stiff-necked, hard-hearted people, a most rebellious generation. For as it is written, you draw near to Me with your mouths and honor Me with your lips, yet your hearts are far from Me... Hypocrites! Who do you serve?! This world, and all its adulteries against God?! Or God, in spirit and in Truth, set apart from this world? For as it is written: The day is coming, and is already here, when The Father shall receive the worship He really wants. For only by the power of The Holy Spirit shall one worship God as He really is... Thus the first harvest shall indeed be lowly, of the lowly; and the second plenteous, of the refined and penitent.
Repent therefore, and humble yourselves, that you may escape all these things which must shortly come to pass! Repent, I say! Repent, in spirit and in truth, and now take up your cross and follow Me! Yet if you repent, and then return to those things of which you have repented, endeavoring not to change, has not your repentance become unrepentance? My children, if you come before Me repenting of your transgressions, in where you have not kept The Moral Law of The Father, and then continue in your transgression, forsaking The Law, have you not committed an even greater evil? For you have made Me the author of sin, saying, “We are in Christ. We are free from The Law”... Desecration!
Little children, hear Me: You are free from the curse of The Law, for you are indeed saved by grace and now live because of Me. Behold, even by My own spirit shall you keep The Law. And though you are now free from the curse of The Law, which is death, you are by no means free to break The Law. Have I not said, “You are forgiven; now go and sin no more”? Therefore if you continue to transgress, and seek not to change your ways, you remain in unforgiveness, having lied to The Father in My name. Neither are you born again of The Spirit, for all those who truly repent receive of My spirit, and strive also to walk in My ways... This, beloved, is true repentance.
I walked in perfect obedience with The Father, I kept The Commandments, every one, and by My example were they fulfilled. Therefore, I ask you, if one forsakes The Law, how then shall he fulfill it? And if one forgets the Sabbath, how then shall he remember it, to keep it holy? Or have you forgotten My words, when I said, “Do not think that I came to destroy The Law or the prophets; I did not come to destroy, but to fulfill”? I do not say then that you shall walk perfectly, for I know you are but flesh. Rather you shall sincerely strive to walk in uprightness, a completion of your faith through obedience, having received of the free gift, even this new heart I have given you... And by this shall you be judged, for I search the hearts and minds, and I know if you have been fully converted in your heart, even unto your innermost parts - one who seeks to please The Father by all their doings, one who truly loves Me.
My children, I shall speak plainly so you may be saved:
Love one another;
Feed the poor in spirit and in body,
Give drink to the thirsty and clothe the naked;
Render aid to the stranger in need,
Visit the widows in their affliction,
Uphold the fatherless, and speak to those in prison;
Help the sick...
Forsake all these holidays of men, which I hate;
Embrace The Holy Days and gain wisdom,
And remember the Sabbath Day,
Yes, the seventh day, to keep it holy...
Obey all The Commandments of God, for they are holy, just and good.
Beloved, by My own spirit shall you keep them, thereby revealing that you have truly received. And listen to those I send. You shall know them by their fruits and by their sword. For they come not to make peace but war in My members, a great division, a sifting of the wheat for the harvest... My children, you grow too close to the tares! You are entangled! Uproot yourselves therefore and be planted in the good ground, where the latter rains are abundant and all crops are harvested in their due season! Beloved, walk with Me as I am, and not as you would have Me be, and you shall truly be set free! For only those who abide in Me shall find respite, and only those in whom I see of Myself shall be gathered up to Heaven.
My children, I do not change; My Word abides forever...
I am The Lord...
And I will have mercy on whom I shall have mercy;
And I will punish whom I shall punish...
Yet call upon My name, in these final hours of darkness,
And you shall be delivered...
Behold, you shall see the angels of Heaven
Ascending and descending upon The Son of Man...
Says The Lord.
