June 5, 2010 - From YahuShua HaMashiach, Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior – The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship, For a Sister in Christ and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
This question was asked… Should we fast on behalf of others?
[The Lord answered] Have not My servants fasted in your presence? Yet you have not discerned… Whatsoever one does with love, with compassion, with empathy, or with concern for their fellow man, is well and good in My eyes; even to the afflicting of one’s soul on the behalf of another, in My name, is righteousness, for this is true love.
Therefore, fast if you are so moved, and do so according to your faith, that it may be strengthened. Yet do not take up a fast for the dead, forsaking The Promise, for this is contemptible in My sight and bears only bitter fruit. Neither shall you fast as a recompense for sin, for this is to deny The Holy Sacrifice and the forgiveness of sins.
Therefore, the one who fasts in remembrance of Me is wise; And the one who draws close to Me, Placing Me first above every need, will have peace…
For they have chosen to forsake their flesh, That they might be filled with Grace and satisfied with Truth; For I am The Only Way, The Only Truth, and The Only Life!..
Thus that which I had spoken in the wilderness Is the very same by which you shall live, As you seek to do the will of your Father in Heaven…
Beloved children, I am enough!…
For I am The Only Bread which truly satisfies, The True Manna which came down from Heaven, In Whom is eternal life!… Says The Lord.
