| Who among you, o Israel, have fasted unto Me?
Who among you, o Israel, and among You…
7/27/09 From The Lord, Our God and Savior – The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Regarding believers in Christ taking part in a Jewish fast during the month of Av
Thus says The Lord your God, The God of Israel, The God of All, He who searches the hearts and minds, even the innermost thoughts and intentions… I, alone, see through the pretense of men; and I, even I, test the quality of every good work done in My name, revealing of what sort it truly is. Therefore, I ask you, shall you seek to do as those who have rejected Me, as all those who forsake My Son, who have no voice before Me and remain void of My Spirit?!… I tell you the truth, their fasts and their offerings I have not accepted! Their sacrifices I do hate! Shall My own people, who are not My people, come before Me in My name to fast for the dead?! Shall they call on My name, while at the same time rejecting My Son?! Lo, they will indeed come, yet I will turn to them My back, and My ears will in no wise hear them!… For they are broken off! Says The Lord.
And what of you, beloved, where do you stand?
Answer, if you know…
For indeed it has come to pass, even since the day
Behold, they were broken off, that you might be grafted in.
For out of unbelief they have been forsaken for a time, even for two days in The Lord. Yet the day has come, and is nearly upon them, when they will be grafted in again. For I AM, and I am able to graft them in again. Yet of that day, it has not fully come. And so I ask you, why do you now endeavor to take part in the futile customs of the unbeliever? How is it you seek to seat yourself among those who lack knowledge and forsake understanding?… Their fasts are in vain! They are not accepted!
Yet I ask you, all you who have not denied Me who also believe this Word, why do My servants fast on the Sabbath as I have commanded them? And of you, who I did not command, why do you also take part? Yes you too shall fast, indeed I will require it of you, yet only those who present themselves before Me in sincere devotion, as one swallowed up in much sorrow over the absence of The Bridegroom, and over all this death which has come and is coming to fill the world in blood, shall be accepted.
Yes, over this shall you fast, over this shall you wail… All these crying children, all these hardened hearts, all this death and murder, all this injustice and godlessness; tears as a river, tears and blood and much wailing, great evil and the slaughter of the innocent; and also because of that which I am about to pour out upon your nation, as a recompense for all their wickedness, in where they have utterly forsaken Me! Yet those of Israel, who reject Messiah, go out to cry over all their dead, and fast because of all this punishment I have allowed to overtake them.
Yet I hear no repentance,
Nor over that which their fathers had done to Him,
Enmity, such bitter tears…
My own people, who were the apple of My eye, forsake Me still…
Take no part in their festivals, therefore,
Therefore, thus says The Lord to all those of Israel, who have drunk from My cup and eaten of My bread, all who remain grafted in; hear The Word of The Lord your God, yes I, YAHUWAH, The God of your fathers… Be not offended in My words, nor wag the head at My speech, nor push out the hand against My words in these Letters. For your eyes have seen and your ears have heard, and within your hearts you have understood the grace of Him who was crucified upon the tree.
Again I say, wag not your head. Rather, that which honors My Son, do; and that which I have decreed as a perpetual ordinance, continue therein, according to The Messiah YahuShua being the goal and fulfillment thereof, for He alone is worthy… And in so doing, do you also become worthy because of Him.
And that which you do in remembrance of Him, to bring glory to His name, honors Me; even as that which you offer up as thanksgiving, in His name, glorifies Me. For indeed, I am He of whom you say is your God… Yes, I AM HE, YAHUWAH, The One who reigns and causes to be, The One who is and has always been The Eternal God, The Everlasting who is from everlasting to everlasting… I AM.
Therefore if you fast, fast as one whose heart longs for the return of The Bridegroom, even as a sign to those who are near and to those who are afar off. And beloved, fast for those perishing, for those who are about to receive of My judgment, which is stored up and must be poured out… Fast, lament and howl, that they repent before the time.
And fast also for those who fast not in The Son’s name; offer up this sacrifice for those who at present remain broken off… Yes beloved, pray for repentance in Israel, for a great awakening, that all awaken to The Light, The One True Light sent to them, so they might be drawn quickly toward it before calamity overtakes this world. For the time has come! I AM COME!
Then when it is accomplished, when all is completed, The Holy One shall come out of His place and He shall appear, and He shall sit upon the throne of His glory!… Then beloved, then beloved O My treasure, then shall you never again fast, nor shall you wail, nor shall you thirst anymore or be hungry ever again. For I am God, THE GOD, and into My hands are you given, in My Son are you placed. Behold, in His love shall you abide forever, for I shall be your God and you shall be My people.
Behold, even those who were afar off shall be brought near,
My joy, their joy, complete in One, THE ONE…
The ONLY True Bread from Heaven, The ONLY Sanctuary and Life,
Yes He, The Holy One of Israel, YahuShua HaMashiach,
Yes, He has come, and He shall return and gather!
Then shall the elect of My heart enter in;
The Feast of Tabernacles!… Therefore come up, My people! It is time!
