Obedience in Love… One Flock, one Household, no Divisions
12/8/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior – The Lord’s Words Spoken to Timothy, During an Online Fellowship – For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
A question was raised, concerning 1 Timothy 5:8 … Is it more important to provide for our immediate households, over those of our brothers and sisters in Christ, and the orphans they care for?
Thus says The Lord…
For love is the chief matter…
And if you love Me, then obey My commands,
Yet I ask you this: Do you love these children  I have given you? Do you really love them as your own, as I have commanded you? Or is the one in the mirror of more concern?
And why do you seek on by intellectual means?… Or worse, to justify yourselves in the sight of others, for your own self’s sake, as though I have not already seen and heard, having beheld every thought of your mind, every intent of your heart, to the innermost?…
Beloved, is not My love displayed by My actions?…
And what is My intent, in bringing your hearts forward,
And if you refuse Me in these commands of Mine, what harm shall it bring? To whose hurt?… For I tell you the truth, if you refuse Me, help will come from another part of My body, and My little children will be provided for, and My servant shall continue in his service toward Me, in the Gospel of My name. Therefore, I ask you again: What harm shall it bring, and to whose own hurt shall it be?
Beloved, read the words of My Book, and walk in them…
For I have blessed you beyond compare,
I am coming quickly, therefore must you also grow quickly,
One in Me, with Me, where I am.
And this I have spoken also gives answer, concerning 1 Timothy 5:8, does it not?… For you are one household, with Masilamani as your brother… And his children, YOUR children. Thus it is also written and remains standing: “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”
1 Timothy 5:8, “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever”.
