You shall not tempt the Lord your God
The Lord says… You shall NOT tempt Me & You shall NOT blaspheme My Words!
February 20, 2006 – From The Lord, Our God and Savior – The Word of The Lord spoken to Timothy, For a Brother in Christ, and For all Those who have Ears to Hear
My Son, listen to what The Lord says… Stop these vain babblings… You intend to bring Timothy low, so you can show yourself exalted. Your boastings have come up before Me as a stench, and a stave which you have broken. Your pride has led you astray, proudly displaying it as a banner of arrogance.
Your knowledge is come to nothing before The Lord… Asking questions of My servant, you yourself knowing the answers, having not heeded that which you know. You are a learned man, yet by your learning, you have become as the unlearned…
You say… ‚Prove to me your speech, so I shall know the truth of your words’… Shall you tempt The Lord your God, by way of them I have sent?
You fear, and so you strive over words, lest one come and say to you… “Thus says The Lord”, and all that you have wrought in your life is found wanting. I require of those, who would speak and teach in My name, a greater portion of responsibility to their First Love, seasoned with humility and faith and love for those they teach, giving heed to sound doctrine spoken of by the prophets of old and now of this day… Of such one, you now know.
Timothy has not understanding in himself… It is by the grace of God, and his total acceptance of Christ, that he both hears and sees. You say you see and hear, and so you think you know… This is why you do not understand. All those,who exalt themselves, shall be abased, and the humble, penitent man shall be exalted.
And so it is also with the humble, who cry… ‚I am dumb, I have no speech. Neither can I hear, oh Lord. I am not worthy. Help me, oh Lord. Cleanse me of these things I hold onto. I give myself completely to You, oh Lord’… To these shall wisdom be given… Yea, even more shall they receive.
Shall then Timothy obey you, a man, or God? Nothing that Timothy does, according to Me, is of his own doing. His life is not his own… He has given it up, as an offering to Me. So then, what you ask of him you ask of Me, for He brings all asked of him before Me. What Timothy has written, he has written, and it stands.
For all he has written is of My doing… I am The Author and The Finisher… Even that, which he has already answered you, is not of his own making… It is, as men say… ‚inspired in the Spirit‘.
Remember this, and have understanding of The Lord’s purpose… Timothy, and a multitude like him, have been sent out, to draw all who will be drawn to the Truth, those who have not yet been drawn of men. For I have poured out My Spirit in the whole earth in these last days, and few have harkened to Me, save those who now seek that which they have not sought before… To these is Timothy sent. To you, and all churchly men, you shall receive correction, for I, The Lord your God, shall correct and discipline those I love… And even more shall I do, according to those who would speak and teach, on My behalf.
Oh poor son of men, you say you are rich, yet you have become poor… You have studied My Word in Scripture, yet you have not recognized the Trumpet before you, and seek to cover the eyes of My watchman and stanch his soundings.
Take heed to yourself, and listen to what the Spirit inside you says, and that which was spoken of through that very same Spirit… ‚Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they be of God, because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby you know the Spirit of God… Every spirit, who confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is of God. And every spirit, who confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is not of God, and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come, and now already is in the world.‘
Again, I say to you, you shall know My prophets by their fruits… “Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? So every good tree brings forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. Neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree, that brings not forth good fruit, is hewn down and cast into the fire… By their fruits you shall know them.”
Wherein, son, do you see the works of satan?… Shall satan stand divided against himself?… Be very careful, My son… For you have blasphemed the words of The Most High, saying they are satanic.
Shall The Lord answer men such as these?… Lo, I have answered you still, because of that which is in your heart. For he, the evil one, who you have charged against Timothy, is the very same one who has cast a stumbling block before your own feet.
For it is written… ‚If any man teaches otherwise, and consents not to the wholesome words, the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof comes envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings‘ – which, verily, I say unto you, you have done.
Repent, therefore, and escape the many snares of the devil, for he is gone out into the world, seeking whom he might devour… Especially those who go out in My name, teaching and proclaiming the doctrines of men.
My Son, understand My words, and take to heart My meaning… You are beloved. You do not hear My voice as Timothy, but My voice remains in you. I have not forsaken you, and do I still send you. Out do I send you, to lead all who will be led, leading them to Christ, The Only Way. So stop judging by human standards… Judge by right standards.
Know this… The Bridegroom is come, and is yet come, to call upon His bride, and will yet arrive with her in the Day of His vengeance, to establish His Kingdom…
Therefore, be ready, and give heed to My correction, and you shall be clothed in white, and escape the judgment, that must shortly fall upon the whole world.
You can not know the day or the hour, but I tell you the truth, the season is upon you and draws near quickly… Not as you believe or have foreseen… Rather, exactly, as it is and was written. I have spoken and given you these words, as a rod by which you shall govern yourself, yet you still resist… You have already gone your own way… My words have fallen on deaf ears, having denied the power thereof. Yet My words will not return to Me void…
By your disobedience shall I bring many into My obedience, by having read this very same word first given to you. Be not downhearted… Yet you shall be lifted up, being redeemed by your faith and love for My Son, Christ Jesus.
For love and mercy’s sake, and your belief in God’s Only Son, are you saved, falling not under condemnation, because of your error… My ways are not the ways of men, nor can any approach Me…
To this end have I sent My Only Begotten, Jesus Christ… Both Lord and Savior to men.
