His Branches are grafted in, budding beautifully from The Vine
March 10, 2006 - From YahuShua HaMashiach, Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior – The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For Timothy and The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
[Timothy] Have I failed you by my stumblings?
[The Lord] No, Timothy, this shall you do and continue in all that I have asked of you. These are mere ruts in the road of your obedience, but ruts they remain. Continue on, gain the line, and continue upon the straight path. All have sinned and stumble, yet you have not given up. Turn to Me and pray, when you are weak. Overwhelm your adversary with good, and continue in My service and faith, and he shall flee from you. Give Me these thirty days once more, but not as thirty, but one; and then tomorrow, one, and so on … one day, each day give to Me.
I have not left you… Do not leave Me. For the devil goes about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, in an effort to devour them by that which is weak and most vulnerable in them, forever trying to sway them from the path of the redeemed and faithful.
Did you think by your stumblings you would lose what I have given you? Is your faith in any way shaken?
[Timothy] No, Lord. I love You, and believe in You more than ever.
[The Lord] This is good. Hold onto that which is right, and turn from sin. Have I not forgiven all of your sins, or just those of your years past? What of your sins of tomorrow? Assuredly, I say to you, I have forgiven them. For all who believe in the Son of God are forgiven, all those who seek forgiveness by repentance in My name.
In your striving to overcome is your love for Me shown through your obedience. I have not said perfect obedience shall save you. Rather, that which is in your heart, and that which you proclaim in faith, believing in God’s only Son, this shall save you from the day of wrath… not perfect obedience. Obedience demonstrates love. What is in your heart is how I know you, and you, Me. Do your best, Timothy… try harder. Use your stumblings to build strength against the world and the ever-present tempter. You are at war with that which you can not see. There is also another war waged all around you that you can not see, which is waged in My name, to protect all those given to Me, so that I might not lose even one lamb.
Timothy, all stumble… all, Timothy. No matter who they are or have been… bond or free, king or servant, and yes, apostle or prophet. There is none righteous… no, not one… save the Son of man, who came from the Father, having the righteousness of the Father in Himself.
So pick up yourself, shake off all the dirt from your garments, apply ointment to your bruises, and begin again in Me. Though sin seems to be ever-present upon you, I have separated it from you… Sin is no longer a part of you. It is mere illusion, a temptation accepted or rejected, according to the desires of men who fall into the temptation of the world and the evil one…
I have abolished sin, having put it under My feet… And will soon wipe it completely from the world, bringing in everlasting righteousness, forever and ever.
Then shall My lambs become My sheep, no longer tempted… But completely established in life, which has no end… Having shed the corruptible, putting on the incorruptible.
Evil is cast into the fire, And sin and temptation passes away in vapors of smoke.
I have overcome the world, And shall shortly overcome all evil and wickedness, so you won’t have to.
Yours to overcome is that which is inside you, where I am also, Giving you strength and lifting you up each and every time you fall.
I am with you, even unto the end of this age.
Timothy, take what I have given you, and cast My seeds asunder in every region of your reach, and I shall water them and cause them to grow in Me. Yea, a great multitude shall embrace Me, through that which has been placed in your hand. We have only just begun. The day is coming, and coming quickly, when you shall become a great prophet of the Lord’s Day. Take what I have given you and use it well, and as I command you, and you shall be given more, even that which surpasses the understanding of the wise and the simple alike. They shall be healed, even of all those who come seeking to be well. Then shall they know, I AM THE LORD, and there is none like Me.
The angels shout… HalleluYah, halleluYah, to He who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, For the time has come to take your mighty power and reign!
