2/4/10 From YahuShua HaMashiach, He Who Is Called Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship, For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
This question was asked: By putting God first, and refusing to take part in the modern holidays of men, are we dishonoring our parents and family who say we should take part?
Thus says The Lord YahuShua: Beloved, a sincere desire to be free from the iniquity of men and this world is good and well-pleasing to The Lord. For one who truly loves Me seeks to please Me. And those in whom I dwell will run from these holidays of men, which I hate, despising them. Yet one who remains in disagreement with My Word in The Volumes can in no wise be gathered, for they have denied Me. And any who reject My Word, in favor of the doctrines of men, embrace that which runs contrary to Me.
For I tell you the truth, anyone who refuses, disagrees with, or speaks against My Letters or My prophets has rejected Me in favor of their own way. Pride has ensnared them, and arrogance has become their close friend. Behold, they have embraced the world and its evil ways, and seek not the approval of their Father in Heaven, but of men. And all who seek the approval of men must walk through the valley with them; and all who remain friends of the world have made themselves enemies of God, as it is written... Therefore all lovers of the world shall surely be left in it; they shall not escape! For assuredly, I say to you, this world shall be shaken and the glory of men shall be broken down! And in like manner shall all those left in the world be humbled, severely abased; many broken and uplifted, and many more broken and condemned, says The Lord.
Therefore, concerning these holidays of men, which I hate... Let all those who have received of The Truth depart from them; Let the division be made clear...
And let those who say they know Me, Yet make no effort to pick up their cross and follow after Me, Bear the weight of their burden in the Day of The Lord, For they are not worthy of Me...
Says The Lord.
Therefore, concerning the question of breaking one Commandment in favor of another, the answer is this: I AM FIRST, of which The Commandments also testify. For those who truly love Me seek to obey My voice, and those who obey My voice have also fulfilled The Moral Law, for I am and have always been The Goal at which The Torah aims. And all those in whose heart I am foremost serve Me without restraint, seeking always to place Me first, above all else. For these walk in My ways, doing those same things I did. They do not add to the Word which I have commanded them, nor do they take from it. Behold, they keep The Commandments of God, as He commanded them and as they are written, and not as the churches of men would have them be.
Thus those who say no to sin, and stay separate from that which God hates, have broken no Commandment. So then to honor any parent who transgresses The Law, by taking part in these perverse holidays of men, is to transgress The Law. Yet by honoring Me in truth, obeying the Word of The Lord, one can by no means transgress The Law. Therefore those who ask, “Would you break one Commandment to obey another?”,speak without knowledge, having also failed to recognize the lie hidden within. For those who ask such questions have given heed to the subtle deceptions of the evil one, by which they are also led, seeing contradictions where none exist.
Again I tell you, who you choose defines what you do, And one who chooses Me will not sin...
Therefore, call on My name and make your repentance full, By departing from those things which are not lawful, Standing apart from those things I hate, And you shall surely be delivered...
I am The Lord.
2/4/10 From YahuShua HaMashiach, He Who Is Called Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship, For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear (Additional understanding regarding the above Letter, "Obey God")
Thus says The Lord: My sons and daughters, you have yet to understand My Word and My will, concerning these things which I hate. When a parent says to their child, “Obey me”,yet their request leads their child into sin, the child who has received knowledge of My ways must choose to walk in the righteousness they have received. For by refusing to obey their parents in that which causes them to sin, they have not dishonored their parents, but have obeyed the Word of The Lord, doing that which is right and good in My eyes, revealing that which is most needful. Beloved, this is where you have erred, for you still listen to the whisperings of the evil one... Listen not to his subtle and dark speeches!
[Timothy] Brothers and sisters, satan would have us believe that even while we are obeying God it is still possible to sin, and that placing God’s will over our parent’s will cause us to break the fifth Commandment!... Do not be ensnared! Obey God!
Thus says The Lord: Beloved, awake! For I tell you the truth, you have yet to come into the full knowledge of who I truly am; nor do you understand My ways, nor are you willing to walk in them. Learn to see with new eyes! And no longer be constrained by doubt, nor let fear hold you captive. For knowledge of Me is understanding, and My spirit brings forth new awareness in those who have truly received, whereby satan’s power is easily broken... Be fully awake, therefore, and come and sit in the light of My understanding! And no longer give heed to the corrupt teachings of men or the churches.
Beloved, by disobeying a parent in regards to these modern holidays of men, you have testified to them by your refusal. And by your actions you have shown them a better way, magnifying that which must be first. Thus in righteousness you have blessed them by your example. Where then is the dishonor? Again, I say to you, one who chooses Me and performs My will does not sin, nor is dishonor in any form found. Therefore obey your parents, and honor them in all things which are not against God or break The Commandments. Yet honor NO request from one who chooses sin, asking you to be a partaker with them. For those who do such things dishonor Me and have not known Me.
Let this be made known to you also: All who know and understand the origins of these holidays of men, and do not take a stand against them, have shown themselves to be in agreement with those who sin against Me; and all those who compromise, or make concessions, have no love for God in their hearts... Be My examples, therefore! Increase in the knowledge of My goings out and comings in, loving one another as I have loved you. And to love your parents is to reveal My love to them, by walking in My ways.
Beloved, you ask of Me many things, Yet I do not honor your every request. This is not dishonor, for I love you and do only That which is right and good concerning you...
So then, My treasured ones, As I had spoken it to My servants of old, So also do I say to you... Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, For I am gentle and lowly in heart, And in Me will you find rest for your souls.
