Regarding Staying Separate

12/11/04 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Thus says The Lord: My children, struggle not against the principles of another, nor rebuke them with your own words, nor correct them by your own understanding. Let go of your personal notions of right and wrong, and strive to love others in spite of yourselves, and have compassion for those with whom you disagree. Do not judge them, nor shun them in your heart. Rather love those who speak against you, because you obey My Word; bless those who curse you, and pray for those who mistreat you, as it is written.[1]
Yet have no part with them, nor give them a platform from which to proliferate their sinful ways; remain separate.[2] For they do rebel against their God. Their argument is with Me, though it may seem as though you have become the object of their scorn. For they do always fight against Me, in an effort to justify their sins. For I have written The Law in the hearts of all men; all are able to discern right from wrong. Thus they choose to rebel; they remain in their sins."

The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For a Brother in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"For as it is written: Those who do not take up their cross and follow after Me are not fit to be My disciples, for they have shown themselves unworthy. And how shall one who loves his father or mother, or son or daughter, more than Me, escape? For they too have shown themselves unworthy of Me. Thus many are called, yet few are chosen."

6/28/06 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
(Addendum to “Abide in the Doctrine of The Messiah”)

This question was asked of The Lord: Lord, how can we convert the sinner from their ways, and bring them the Good News and your warning, if we are to remain separate?

Beloved ones, did you think you could change the hearts of the afflicted by human power? Human power is of no use at all.[3] I soften the hearts of the seekers, pierce the hearts of the insolent, and harden the hearts of the wicked. And what of you, Timothy? Have you saved even one of these thousands who have returned to Me? Did you author all these words? Did you give the newly redeemed understanding? Did you pour out your spirit upon them? Timothy, have peace; I know your heart. Yet I will continue to make you an example to the people.
Beloved ones, all of Timothy’s apparent success in the conversion of these thousands, and soon to be many ten thousands, is answered in one word: Obedience. He has obeyed My voice. I gave him the seeds, he planted, you watered, and I brought forth the increase.[4] So then, how shall you change even one thought or action of those you love, by keeping their company? How shall you teach the blind? What words will the deaf hear? Can you heal the tongues of the dumb? Beloved, I shall teach them. And if they forbear, I will rebuke them, I Myself shall abase them.


Therefore, as it is written:
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.
For what fellowship does righteousness have with lawlessness?
And what communion does light have with darkness?
And what accord does The Messiah have with belial?
Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever?[5]...

Beloved, kick not your foot against the stones,
For you will only limp away wounded by the effort...

You shall go where I send you...

Says The Lord.

3/31/13 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For Timothy, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear (Regarding his mother coming to visit)

Thus says The Lord to His servant: Timothy, harbor no ill will toward your mother, nor hold resentment in your heart, but forgive her. Nevertheless, because she does not keep My Commandments and disregards My every decree, making no allowances for My holy days, to remember them and keep them holy, compromising for the sake of her children, doing instead those things which I said she shall not do, this is what The Lord your God says: Those who know a prophet of God must heed his words, for he speaks for Me. And those who have received My words by the hand of My prophet are bound by them. For those who truly love Me seek also to walk in My ways, and those who know Me recognize the Word given them, and obey it.
Yet with your mother, it is not so. For with her mouth she testifies of her love for Me, yet her actions speak to the contrary, revealing a heart which remains far from Me, a heart married to those of this world, a child who is double-minded in all her ways. Thus she shall not enter the house of My prophet, nor shall any who stand against Me draw near. And this shall be for a sign and for a testimony against them, until the time be changed. For those who walk alongside the rebellious, and cast their lot with the insolent, stand with them. And those who keep the company of the wicked, and are at ease among those who slander My servants and blaspheme My Word and My name, have shown themselves to be in agreement. Therefore, again I say, she shall not enter, says The Lord.

Thus as it is written, so it is and shall be: Whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in Heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in Heaven. Do not think that I came to bring peace on Earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s enemies will be those of his own household. He who loves father or mother, more than Me, is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter, more than Me, is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take up his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. He who receives a prophet, in the name of a Prophet, shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man, in the name of a Righteous Man, shall receive a righteous man’s reward.[6]


Therefore, do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers...

For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness?
And what communion has light with darkness?
And what accord has Messiah with Belial?
Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?
And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?[7]...

Therefore come out from among them, and be separate;
Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you[8]...

Says The Lord.

2/4/10 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord 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

This question was asked of The Lord: Lord, by putting You 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?

"Those in whose heart I am foremost serve Me without constraint, 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 away 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.[9]
Thus those who say no to sin, and stay separate from that which is an abomination in the eyes of God,[10] 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."

~

"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 is 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.Therefore, obey your parents and honor them in all things, save that which causes you to disobey the Word of God; honor NO request from one who chooses sin, asking you to be a partaker with them. For 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 dishonor Me and have no love for God in their hearts.[11]


Be My examples, therefore...

Come out from among them and be separate;
Do not touch what is unclean and I will
Receive you, as it is written[12]...

Obey My voice and walk in My ways,
Revealing to every onlooker that I am indeed first...

The greatest of all loves."

8/19/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Thus says The Lord God: Beloved children, I am calling you out. From the midst of your countrymen, from the midst of your peers and kindred, even from the midst of all these churches of men, I am calling you out, that you may be separate, that you may be set apart in truth, a lowly people who wait upon The Lord with joy and trembling.
Yet My people will not come out, nor will they stay separate. For they do not hate the company of evildoers, and at the table of the wicked they sit at ease. Yet The Lord your God has shown you the Way. Even I have provided this lamp for your feet, lest you should stumble and fall into a pit. For thick clouds gather, darkness descends and covers the earth, yet you will not believe."

~

"Therefore, thus says The Lord to all those who have ears to hear: Beloved, stand apart from this world in word and by deed. Take your every thought captive that you may be fully set apart. Reveal your love for Me by all you say and do; put your love on open display. Rest in Me on the Sabbath Day and receive My blessing; honor My Holy Days and remember, that you may also understand; hold fast to the Holy Covenant, and no longer depart from the Word of My Commandment."

4/21/05 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For His Wife, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

This question was asked of The Lord, for Timothy’s wife: Lord, should she try to remain friends with those who have separated themselves from her because of Your Word?

"[The Lord answered] Beloved, bear fruit after the kind I have given you, in open and in secret. For what profit is there in sharing with another that which they believe they already have? And how shall one who pushes out the hand receive a gift? Beloved, let the separation stand. For though they say, “We are full, we are in need of nothing,” I tell you the truth, they remain void and desolate.
Therefore, turn aside from those who push out the hand and wag the head. Rather seek out the poor, that I may feed them. Fill the bowls of the hungry, and place the cup in the hands of the thirsty; give them your portion. For My bounty is plentiful, given freely to all who hunger and thirst for righteousness.[13] Beloved, tell them that you were once lost, yet now you are found; that you were once naked, yet now you are clothed in fine linens of white, your filthy rags cast off forever; that you were once hungry and very thirsty, starving in a world of empty promises, lies and vain deceits, yet now you are nourished with The Word of Truth."

The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For a Brother in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"And of the scoffers, they remain blind, not at all willing to go and wash their faces, that their eyes might be opened. Nor do they seek Me in truth according to the Spirit, which can only be received in Messiah; He is not in them. Thus the mud remains, the scales have yet to fall from their eyes.


Therefore stay separate from those
Who shoot out the lip, from all who reject
This Word and slander My messengers..."

12/25/04 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For a Brother in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear


"Again I say to you, search not in the world,
For there you will not find Me...

Nor seek Me in the churches of men,
For there you will not find Me...

For I tell you the truth, The Kingdom of God is within you[14]...

And that which is most needful, is it not written for you?


Therefore, do not place your trust in any man,[15] nor lean upon man’s invention, for the things of this world deceive you. Beloved, turn away from those who teach as doctrine the commandments of men,[16] and stand apart from all this modern ideology, for it is poison. Close your eyes to all these images on the screen, shut your ears to the noise of this world, and separate yourself from all these mocking voices.[17] For the evil one is, at present, the lord of the air;[18] indeed, every corrupt seed planted within the heart of man is of the evil one."

10/5/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship, For a Brother in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

A brother in Christ asked: Hey Timothy, I’m being faced with a few dilemmas: A close friend made me the godfather of her son. They are having a birthday celebration for him this Sabbath, then having him christened at a local church. I’ve been praying about this, and feel that it would be okay to go to the birthday, but I’m not sure about the christening. I want to do what is right in The Lord’s sight, having proper reasoning for my decision.

"[The Lord answered] My son, before you have I set many things of great importance, yet I have heard no answer, nor have you offered yourself in place of your lack. And now you ask of obedience, stumbling over those things from which you were to remain separate. Therefore, this is My answer: One who serves Me in truth must show themselves fully worthy, embracing the call of The Lord wholeheartedly, or how shall I send them? (I speak not of being made worthy according to My sacrifice, but of giving up your life in this world for My sake, loving Me more than these, bearing your cross after Me.)
Behold, I shall soon speak, and in a loud voice I shall reveal My will through My servant, and he shall write[19]. And the line shall be drawn, it shall be set, and no one shall pass over it. For lo, I tell you a mystery: Those who depart and obey My voice will pass to one side, and those who refuse to the other; one on this side, and many on the other. And those who pass over to those who remain on this side shall escape. Yet those who refuse My voice, even to rebel against Me, shall remain on their own part, on the other side of the line which The Lord shall draw... By this shall the inner court and the outer court be measured. And all found on the outer court shall surely die. For they remain outside, though they hold fast inside these houses called by My name, whose doctrines and traditions I hate, placing all their faith in a house doomed to destruction which must shortly be torn down. Yet those who come out from among them shall enter the inner court, though they are seen as outcasts and heretics. These shall surely live, escaping all these things which I am about to do. I am The Lord."

7/24/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"The whole world is awash in blasphemy and sin, perversion fills every corner! For all these people of faith, as they are called among men, desecrate My name by man-made doctrine and pollute My name by pagan tradition; harlotries abound! Come out from among them therefore, and be separate! Touch no more that which is unclean, and I will receive you! Be separate from this world and its evil ways! Be plucked up and freed from all these vain religions of men, from all these who uphold reprehensible doctrine and deplorable tradition, polluting My way before Me! For they are greatly misled, pleasers of men and this world, antichrist."

10/7/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Therefore I, even I, The Lord God of Heaven and Earth, am calling you out! I am calling you to come out from amongst them and to be separate; that you no longer be given to the fornications of the churches of men, nor be caught up in the filth of the pagan; that you cease from committing adultery with all these strange men of unclean lips, who dwell amongst a people of unclean lips, who cease not from polluting My name and My glory!"

~

"Yes I, your Redeemer, am calling you to come out of the churches of men, to be separate, and to no more worship Me in that way! - To no more touch the unclean thing! To no more let hypocrisy enter your ears! To no more sit in the company of those who pollute My name and lean upon their own understanding, who trust in their own righteousness as they sit upon self-made thrones of pride, a perverse and high-minded people who rest upon their own laurels by which they highly esteem themselves, seeking always the praise and glory of men."

~

"Behold, I have judged already, and am come to pass judgment. For I had called to you, O churches of men, saying, “Come out and be separate,” yet you refused Me. As an obstinate child flailing in the midst of a tantrum, so have you refused to obey My voice, neither will you listen. Indeed, you are altogether unable to receive correction. Even as a stubborn ox which sits upon the ground and can not be moved, so are you amongst the churches of men, bullheaded and unmoving."

~

"THEREFORE COME OUT OF HER,
MY PEOPLE, AND SURRENDER UNTO ME!
Come out from among them, and be
Separate from the churches of men!
Touch no more the unclean thing,
And I will receive you! Says The Lord...

Turn away from My voice no longer,
To your own hurt, for the time is ending
And the first of many must be taken;
They must enter in, and the door must be shut;
For judgment shall rain down from
Heaven, filling the entire earth...

COME OUT, THEREFORE,
ALL YOU WHO HAVE EARS TO HEAR!
Heed the sound of this Trumpet, and come out!
For this is indeed the Trumpet Call of God!...

Says The Lord of Hosts, your Redeemer."

The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy and Jayse
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Therefore, thus says The Lord: Again I tell you, I HAVE SEEN IT! And as I live, says The Lord, so also do I declare it through the pen of My prophets; lo, I have sworn it in the heat of My wrath, and will also do it!
Behold! I have purposed destruction upon all your abominable temples! I have declared calamity for all your grand houses, until all these riches are consumed!... Every building which stands so high and lofty, every whitewashed wall which conceals abomination, every upright pillar, every established column, all must come down, all must be broken in pieces! - Until only dust and ashes remain, until the foot of the high man can find no level ground upon which to stand and rest, until the hand of the proud finds no place to lean upon in his weariness.
For only then will they be separate, only then will they come out from among them, says The Lord. For I alone am The Kingdom, The Power and The Glory, forever and ever. Amen..."
