8/5/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Holy One of Israel:What is the knowledge of man, is it not a stone of stumbling; and the pride of man, a rock of offense? How then shall the blind see or the deaf hear, unless I heal them? Or how shall a man grab hold of the line, unless it is first placed within his reach?
For thus is the arrogance of man: They seek out knowledge, only to proclaim their own glory before men. Indeed they proclaim falsely that they know the way, though they remain lost in their own deceptions. They are foolish, and have not known Me. They are as silly children, who have no understanding. They are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge, as it is written. For they do always refuse My guidance, nor will they be led.
Yet a faithful servant of The Most High is wise. For he fears The Lord, and waits upon Me with all patience and faith, doubting nothing; a humble servant who studies My Word, knowing I am The Author and The Finisher thereof. In him pride has no foothold and all arrogance flees away... Behold, in him is no want at all, for I am enough. When he wakes and when he lies down to sleep, I am there. I am his life, and he is My joy, says The Lord.
Therefore, when My servant comes to an impasse in My Word, according to his own understanding, what is his reaction? He continues on, without hindrance or doubt, because his relationship with The Author is intimate, his trust without reservation. He remains at peace, and waits upon The Lord for the light of understanding, knowing in his heart that every word is true; ready to receive the spirit of the Word, stumbling not over its letter. And until one is established firmly upon this premise, they will remain daunted, striving to see but never fully understanding, straining to hear but remaining dull of hearing.
Thus for the wise and faithful servant, all barriers are removed; For his peace is in the knowing, I AM WHO I AM, Though he yet stands at the beginning, unable to see the end...
An heir of all I will reveal to him, When the fullness of time has come in.
And this, beloved, is what remains lacking among you. This is why you struggle, though it need not be... Let go, for I am enough! Be still and breathe Me in, and you shall surely receive of that which you long for, that which you need! Or have you so quickly forgotten, I am also your Author? Behold, I am your Finisher, your Father.
Thus says The Lord: It is written, fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of The Holy One is understanding. Therefore all else is vanity, a false way, leading to great vexation of spirit. For I AM THE LORD. From the beginning it was I who had done it, even to the end shall I perform it; and behold, all is fulfilled according to My will. Therefore, to fear The Lord your God is indeed the beginning of wisdom. For how can one know Me, unless they first acknowledge Me? And how can one fear Me, unless they believe I AM WHO I AM?... He who causes to be, He who called all things into existence, The Creator of Heaven and Earth!
Therefore, this is wisdom: I AM...
The Way, The Truth, The Life, YAHUSHUA, The Salvation of God by Whom all things consist, And by Whom you shall also receive understanding...
