| To the Church at My right Hand…Hear My Word & Heed My Correction
Thus says the Lord… To the Church at My right Hand…
February 15, 2007 – From The Lord, Our God and Savior – The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For the United Church of God, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord God, to the church called of itself The United Church of God… You remain seated at My right hand, because of your faith and those good works which you have done in accordance with your faith, which I Myself have given you. So then call yourself no more, ‚The United Church of God‘, rather call yourself ‚The United Church, In YahuShua The Messiah, under God.‘
My children, I ask you, are you of God? Do you sit next to Me upon My throne, or is it My body in which you dwell? Have I commanded you to call yourselves by My own name?… Christ is The Church, His name is YahuShua, and He is the body in which you shall dwell. By Him and through Him are all things, and to Him shall the Gentiles flock. He is your Shepherd, and by His shed blood are you made sons and daughters of God.
Yes, you are of His body and remain seated at His right hand, therefore continue in The Way I have shown you, resting firmly in Messiah, being an immovable stone for His name. For you have greatly pleased The Lord your God by your doings… You have kept My Commandments and remembered My Holy Days, and have not departed from My Sabbaths, even the seventh day of each week which I had commanded be remembered and kept holy, even as I had also sanctified the seventh day from the beginning.
Indeed, you have sought to be separate from those things which I hate… Forsaking that which is detestable in My sight, even all these polluted holidays and traditions of men which man celebrates in ignorance and sin, desecrating My name and The Christ’s… Thus you have not made your members in Christ to be members of a harlot. Therefore, great shall be your reward in Heaven, for all sin is not equal, only My forgiveness is equal.
This you must remember, that you may be humbled in your service toward Me… No church, named of men, is the True Church – Not one. Rather each member individually, in whom Christ dwells, abiding wholly in Him and also walking in His ways, make up the True Church of His body… No walls, only Spirit and Truth.
Therefore, O church of men, if you seek to strive on toward perfection, hear My words and forbear not. Take to heart all I have given you, and make it not a point of contention between you and others; nor pollute your good works with pride, nor use them as a measuring stick by which you count others unworthy… For I, alone, sit as Judge; I, alone, correct and discipline those I love. Rather take all I have given you, both in knowledge and understanding, and become your own students.
Now take heed, and hear what The Lord says to the church at His right hand, if you do indeed seek to remain at My right hand… Forbear not, nor reject this word or all these Letters which I have spoken for this generation, lest I leave you unto refinement also. For indeed your robes have been made white, washed in the blood of The Lamb, this you know, yet many of your daughters have gone their own way… Returning to the ways of the world and the harlot, doing those things which are unseemly in My sight; forsaking My Sabbaths, and embracing those doctrines and traditions of men which I hate, even all their holidays which are falsely called so, which I loathe in My zeal; mixing the things of God with the pagan traditions and perverse doctrines of men.
Therefore be strong, yea be very strong, and make every effort to turn them back again, lest they too are torn in pieces when I stretch out My hand against the mother and harlot, and bring calamity upon the churches of men.
Beloved, strive toward perfection in all you do, and think not that you are above correction. Embrace My words which I have spoken to this generation, and you shall surely be gone from this place, escaping the Great Day of The Lord’s Wrath which I am about to pour out on every nation… Oh yes, My sons and daughters, I shall surely take My people OUT OF this place! And many shall behold the angels of God ascending and descending upon The Son of Man in that day. For these, in whom Christ dwells, are not appointed to wrath, but have passed from judgment into life.
Thus as it was in the days of Lot, when I brought him forth out of the city, so likewise shall I deliver My servants in the Day of The Lord. For The One who withholds, and those who abide in Him, must be taken out of the way. Then shall I judge the earth and strike the nations. By no means shall these, who are converted in their innermost parts, be taken through. Therefore give heed to My words and embrace My correction, that you may see with greater eyes, and receive understanding of My will as it truly is… Or have you forgotten this truth, ‚No prophecy or Scripture is to be interpreted by an individual on their own, for prophecy has never come as a result of human power or by the will of man; on the contrary, people moved by the Holy Spirit received a message from God‘?
My children, search the Scriptures according to My Word, as it was written and not as man has rewritten it, nor discern according to your own beliefs or doctrines, and you shall behold My glory, even the truth of this Word which I have put forth for this generation. For all I speak is Scripture and Truth, even a plumb line by which everything man has made crooked can be set straight once again, says The Lord.
Therefore, hear and understand the love and severity of God… For those who forsake Me, and trample upon the name of The Holy One of Israel, rejecting Me and My Word, great adversity… Refinement in the Day of The Lord!
Yet for those who embrace Me and My Word, cleaving to Him in whom the fullness of God dwells, great love, even a multitude of joy, an escape from wrath and refinement!… My elect wheat housed in My barn, even for one week in The Lord.
Beloved flock at My right hand, I have but one more correction for you and no discipline at all, if you so choose to heed My words and embrace My correction. For you have done many things well, according to My word in the Scriptures; and only by these things in which you yet lack understanding have you spoken in error, a mere stumbling in your walk with Me, in the service of others in Christ’s name… And so for many, a firm hand of correction and discipline; yet for you, correction only, if you indeed heed My words and also do them.
So then hear and understand the truth of baptism, of which you hold in such high regard; and be careful that you do not make it a rod or a measuring stick by which you judge others, nor make baptism by water more than it was ordained to be, lest you should make the cross of Christ of no effect… As is circumcision, so also is baptism – Neither are necessary for salvation.
You speak without knowledge, and have failed to understand the loving mercies of God which are fulfilled in Christ. For you need only look to the thief on the cross, and have understanding. For a man who had never known baptism by water, nor set foot in a church, was assured of salvation when he confessed his sin in the presence of The Messiah, with a true and penitent heart. And in that same moment he was forgiven, and will enter into paradise at the Last Day, as YahuShua had spoken it to him, saying, ‚In truth I speak to you this day, you shall be with Me in paradise.‘
Therefore My sons and daughters, heed these words which I had spoken by My servant already, for they speak to the truth of baptism… Many will there be in My Kingdom, who had not been baptized in water; rather they had been fully immersed in The Word, being enveloped in The Son’s sacrifice and love, for these have been fully baptized in The Spirit. Assuredly I say to you, they have their reward, as do you, My precious children. For from the beginning, I have known you and loved you who baptize with water. So also do I love and know those without baptism by water, for they love Me as you love Me. Do not cast stumbling blocks before the feet of those who love Me; be all one in Christ. For if you dispense the food of God to the hungry, while using your own salt to salt that which has salt in itself, will not the food you offer lose its flavor and become bitter in the mouths of those who came looking to be filled?
Therefore, again I say, to all those who hold baptism in such high regard, even as a measuring stick by which they count others worthy or unworthy unto God, according to their own perverse doctrine… Whosoever God has cleansed is worthy; you shall not call them unworthy. For baptism by water was given to men as an outward testimony of one’s commitment to God, in The Christ’s name, and also for union in fellowship one to the other within the body of Christ.
So I say to you, be wary of any doctrine which steals from the power of the cross, as though the sacrifice of Messiah was not enough, lest you fall into judgment for that by which you judge. What is earthly, let it stay earthly; and what is spiritual, let it stay spiritual. Hold not to the earthly or to the understanding of men, nor grab hold of any private interpretation of Scripture or established doctrine… Hold fast to God, by Christ.
For where, in The Commandments of God, have I written all must be baptized by men to be saved? Baptism is indeed good, if it is a confession poured out from one’s heart in pure belief, an outward act of faith revealing one’s acceptance of forgiveness in Christ. For the water of the earth can only cleanse that which is soiled on the skin; by no means can it cleanse that which is soiled in the spirit… This is reserved for the blood of The Lamb.
Again, I say to you, baptism by water is nothing in and of itself, unless one is first washed in The Word and baptized in The Spirit, which is and can only be received through YahuShua HaMashiach. For He alone is The Baptism, The Very Water of Life, by which all must be cleansed and receive their salvation.
Therefore, beloved, remember this… The Spirit of The Word, and not the letter, is The Way, The Truth and The Life, by which your entire life shall be cleansed in the waters from Heaven, which are and flow from YahuShua, whom you call Christ and Jesus.
For I tell you the truth, The Messiah comes quickly to baptize all in fire and glory… Those of a wicked heart, in fire… And those of The Spirit, who have also received the love of The Truth, in glory forever and ever… Amen.
Beloved servants, Timothy is My prophet. And though you yet resist him, all I have spoken by him shall surely come to pass; and though it seems to tarry in the eyes of men, it shall not tarry, it shall surely come… Then all will know, that which was written was spoken by the mouth of The Lord, and indeed a prophet had been among them.
