Know that which has been poured out... The Spirit of God
December 13, 2004 - From YahuShua HaMashiach, Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior – The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For a Brother in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord… How is it you have not recognized that which comes from The Father? For that which is of the devil is made plain and surrounds you on every side. Therefore the things of God become that much more precious, even as you, My son, are most precious in My sight… Like a gemstone shining in the midst of all this darkness, easily found by the eyes of God, so shall you be in the day you surrender your life, in the day you give up this fight and return to Me.
Do you not understand that I have saved you? No, not by your own works, but by My life, which I willingly gave up for you. Therefore, turn to Me wholly and in truth. And no more let the doctrines of men in the churches steal from your trust; nor let their traditions pollute your faith anymore. Be set apart from the ways of this world, and depart from the churches of men. For I alone am your faith, I alone am your completion.
My son, why do you question yourself, and even more so, the intentions of My servant? I know your heart, I see your every desire, even those things which you keep hidden… Beloved, our bond can never be severed! No, no one on Earth or in Heaven, nor anything in all creation, can break that which The Lord your God has forged in My love!
I know you feel you are stumbling; this is to be human. Yet I am He who shall lift you up, yes, even seventy times seven times. Yet remember this: One who abides in faith does not need all the answers. Or have you never read these Scriptures: “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”, and, “He who dwells in the secret place of The Most High shall abide under the shadow of The Almighty”?
Therefore listen, and you will also know, For by The Spirit of God are all things revealed to the chosen…
Search your heart, My son, and you will find Me; Embrace My words, and you will begin to know Me…
For indeed, there are many gifts of The Spirit Which I bestow upon all those who truly love Me, Many gifts given to those who are Willing to give up everything and follow Me.
Thus Timothy is just one among many who hear My voice, one voice in a great chorus growing ever louder, of the number I am sending. Yet to him did I say, “Write that which I speak, and place it in a book”; also commanding him to share that which The Spirit causes him to understand. For the latter is that which My people call inspired of God or inspired in The Spirit; and the former, that which the prophets hear, the voice of The Living God. That which is inspired I also offer to you, My son, if you so choose to embrace Me as I truly am… Therefore rest in Me, My son. For I am He who purifies the heart and gives rest to the heavy-laden. Lay all your burdens upon Me, and be delivered. Put away the cares of this world and those things which cause you to stumble, and be separate from the churches of men, for in them I do not dwell. Then will you begin to see Me as I really am, then you will recognize this trumpet before you, of what sort it truly is. For that which is of God glorifies Me, yet that which is of men and satan pollutes My name and seeks glory for itself.
My son, in all times past, even to this day, have I chosen many to hear My voice and perform My will, for I do not change. Yet even this you have failed to recognize, for the fountains from which you drink are polluted, causing your ears to grow dull and your eyes dim. Yes, many times have I sent out My prophets to blow the trumpet to the people, even arising early and sending them, yet few have ears to hear or eyes to see; behold, the whole world slumbers and the multitudes refuse to hear!
Therefore, My son, listen to Timothy, for he speaks for Me, he hears My voice. Behold, he has sat in My presence and seeks to obey all I ask of him. Do not say then, nor conceive any notion within your heart, that he may be deceived by the devil. Or have you never read these Scriptures: “Every kingdom divided against itself will surely be brought to ruin, and every house divided against itself will collapse. If satan also is divided against himself, how then will his kingdom stand?”
My son, do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? For a good tree brings forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. Neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. And every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Thus by their fruits you shall know them. And was I speaking only of the false prophets or of the true also? Is it not also implied that I speak of their message? And what of all these self-appointed scholars, teachers, pastors, preachers, ministers and priests, who have set themselves up as an authority, what fruit do they bear according to the Scriptures?
My son, strengthen your faith according to that which is of God, not by that which is of men… Come out from among them! No longer embrace their corrupt doctrines, nor take part in their filthy traditions. Stand apart from those who mix the holy with the profane, depart from that which is covered in purple and scarlet, and no more practice that which is an abomination in the eyes of God. Read what the Word of God says regarding all these things, and gain wisdom… See now with new eyes and restored vision!
My son, you have said of My servant, that he claims himself higher than other men and all those called Christian. In this lies your error. For as you perceive him as being brought high in his service, in truth I have brought him very low. For once he lived in sin, as all men, a lord unto himself, yet now he has become My servant; behold, he is made new, a man of low degree, one who now strives to obey all I command him. For it is the humble, penitent man who hears God, one who is willing to give up his life in this world for My sake. Therefore, take My words to heart and understand: Any man who shares My Word with others is My servant; and any man who hears My voice, in whose hand I have placed the trumpet, is My prophet; even all those I send are My apostles… And any who heed these words, and also do them, shall be called a friend of God.
So then, do as you have said at the first, My son, for this is also My will: Test the spirits, as it is written. Search the Scriptures, and see whether or not these words are in line with those written by the prophets and apostles of old. And if in doing so, you prove to yourself that they are indeed of God, and speak and teach righteousness, question them not again. For to doubt the messenger is to doubt the message, and He who sent him also.
Yet understand this… That which is given Timothy is Scripture and Truth… A rod by which the doctrines and traditions of men in the churches shall be tested and exposed! A strong rebuke for all these false prophets and teachers! A scorching fire sent down from Heaven to purge away the dross!
Behold, The Everlasting has poured out His Spirit on all people, For the time has come!…
And all those who receive of Me in truth shall Dream dreams, see visions and prophesy…
For I am The Lord, and I do not change.
