7/16/09 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

Thus says The Lord: The error of the churches is great! Behold, their every tradition has come up before Me as an awful stench in My nostrils, and their every doctrine assaults My ears with a terrible sound! For they have taken the things of God and corrupted them for evil gain! - Prepared speeches, lawless sermons, heresies against God and The Way! By clever words and false hope built upon the promise of riches, they lead My people astray; behold, they corrupt their own congregations by flattery, and because of covetousness the people are easily swayed... Oh the vanity and pride of men, who do continually seek after vain glory, saying within themselves, “Look at all I have done; see how I have come to speak for The Most High, see how I have become like Him!”[1]

Therefore, thus says The Lord: ALL self-appointed apostles, prophets, and preachers shall be brought to utter ruin! And lo, destruction comes swiftly, a weight which you have brought upon your own heads! For I am coming quickly in judgment; I am coming down with great recompense, and I shall surely repay!... Behold, I shall strike you down, and you shall collapse where you stand; even as that which you have built up in your greed, for the sake of your own glory, shall collapse upon you!
Shall one become a prophet by human means?! Is the voice of The Almighty something that can be claimed?! Can the gifts of My spirit be attained by human power, and am I now made subject to the wiles of men?! You have all prophesied lies before Me; you speak that which is born from the deceit of your own hearts! - A very foolish endeavor, a vain thing, a fatal error! For you have taken the things of God in hand, and twisted them, for your own gain![2]
Shall you attempt to steal from My glory, and then parade yourself before the people as though you were sent by God?! - I HAVE NOT SENT YOU! Shut your mouths and be quiet! Open not your mouths, and speak no more in My name, lest I tear you in pieces and there be none to deliver![3] For I tell you the truth, My judgment is not idle, and your destruction does not sleep!... Therefore, fall hard upon your faces, AND REPENT, and I may yet have mercy upon you! Says The Lord God.

For I have beheld your form,
Yes, I have looked upon your visage,
And I have seen your fine clothes and all your
Luxuriously-crafted apparel, all these expensive
Ornaments with which you adorn yourselves...

I know all your delusions of grandeur,
And how you lead My people astray by false divinations,
Brought forth from your own corrupted hearts...

Therefore, your portraits shall be broken,
Your church buildings shall be thrown down
And your every pulpit swept away,
In the day I strip you naked and leave you desolate!...

Says The Lord.

Therefore hear The Word of The Lord, all you who call of yourselves Christian, for thus declares The Lord: No prophet or man of God, of whom I have chosen and sent, shall by any means receive payment for his services, nor shall he accept a gift; no man shall profit from My Word! Freely he has received, freely he shall give. Nor shall he allow any form of praise or glory to be added to his account; rather, he shall correct them sharply. I am The Lord.
Thus all you teachers, pastors, preachers, ministers and priests, who receive tithes and welcome praise from the people, shall be held accountable; behold, it shall be required of you in the Day. Shall you take profit for that which I have offered as a free gift? Shall you raise yourselves up by false glory, and abuse My Word for selfish gain? Yes, there is indeed profit in it, according to the wealth of grace and salvation which abounds in love, granting an abundance of eternal wealth, which is life in My presence and My joy forevermore, for all those who receive My Word and also walk in it. Yet those who use My Word to profit by monetary means shall be cast out, and shall remain in the valley, walking through thick darkness until death comes to claim them! Says The Lord.

Therefore, let it be stated and set forth this day
In the hearing of the people, whether they will hear
Or whether they will forbear, for it shall be done and
Come to pass as I have spoken it, even as I proclaim it now:

No man in authority, whether a self-appointed apostle,
Prophet, teacher, pastor, preacher, minister or priest,
As they are called among men, who also forsake
The Moral Law in the name of The Messiah, to make Him
The author of sin, shall escape the Day of The Lord!...

For the saints of The Most High are those who keep
My Commandments and remember My Sabbaths,
And carry The Messiah within them, even unto
Pure testimony in His name, in word and by deed.[4]

Again, I tell you, no leader amongst the churches of men who forsake the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week (no, not the first, nor the second, nor the day of your choosing, but the seventh), of which I Myself had sanctified from the beginning, shall escape the Day of The Lord; refinement shall be their companion! And no leader amongst the churches who embraces all these holidays of men, which I hate, shall by any means escape the Day of The Lord!... Remember My Holy Days, for in them shall you begin to know the mind of God, and the glory of My salvation in Messiah.
And NO leader amongst the churches of men, who teaches the doctrine of hell and eternal torment[5], shall by any means be gathered! Neither shall any who embrace this teaching escape; for I do not know them, neither do I abide in them! And NOT ONE who comes speaking against this Word or My messengers, to stone them in word and by deed, to slander them, to spit upon them, to strike them down, or to bring even one railing accusation against them, whether it be in open or in secret, shall by any means escape the Day of The Lord’s fury! For I tell you the truth, neither age nor gender shall deliver them! For The Lord your God is no respecter of persons;[6] I know your hearts... For as I am, says The Lord, so shall I be. And as I have always done, so shall I perform it again, even amongst this modern generation of perverse and deceitful peoples.

For indeed, the fear of YAHUWAH is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of The Holy One is understanding.[7] Therefore abide in Him, and you have Me also. Yet abide in the world, and you shall also reap the world’s reward - Judgment and punishment in the Great and Terrible Day of The Lord. Therefore, My children, unless you call upon the name of The Messiah in truth, with sincere remorse in your hearts, as one broken atop The Stone,[8] you shall by no means escape.

Again, I say to you, repent, and run to your Savior in truth!
Embrace Him as He truly is, and not as you would have Him be!...

Flee all these churches of men, turn your backs on all their
Self-appointed apostles, prophets and preachers, and run!...

Run to YahuShua, whom you call Christ and Jesus!
For He alone is your hope and your shield,[9] your only escape!...

Says The Lord.
