11/14/04 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For Timothy’s Sister, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Regarding Timothy’s sister’s claim of seeing demons and spirits. She asked if they were “lost souls” who needed her help. She also asked if she should rebuke the “bad ones”.
Thus says The Lord: Woe, I say to you, demons are not to be trifled with! There is but One, One only, to which complete authority over demons is given - YahuShua HaMashiach, He who is called Christ and Jesus, The Lord. For those who have not truly received of The Spirit are vulnerable to the wiles of the devil; and those who take it upon themselves to fight against demons are in grave danger, and will be easily overpowered by them. Yet there are those few who are chosen by God, who may rebuke demons in YahuShua’s name, but only those to whom it is given. And this is not of their own authority, but The Messiah’s authority
Timothy, you are one of the chosen to whom it will be given to accomplish such things. Yet to your sister it is not given. For her situation is both real and imagined. She sees and hears that which is of her own making; paranoid delusions coupled with hallucinations, brought forth from years of illicit drug use; false visions increased in her by the evil one and those who serve him, in an effort to keep her blind to The Truth. For she knows not The Way, nor will she embrace The Truth as it really is. Thus she remains at war with herself, for her sins remain uncovered.
Timothy, this I command you: Pray for her. And when she comes to you in sincerity, counsel her according to that which I give you in that self-same moment. For all My sheep wander, yet I will surely lead them back again. Give her Scripture to read, I will guide you, and by your obedience shall I lead her back again. And when her day comes, she shall become a shining example to those who are and were as she, and to these will she give counsel. For this is her true calling, if she so chooses to accept it, if she so chooses to embrace Me as I truly am... Yet to the casting out of demons, I say no!
For those who seek to understand the dark will soon find themselves
Trapped in the midst of it, unable to break free
Yet those who seek The Light will find it,
And I will show them The Way;
In these darkness has no foothold...
I am The Lord."
From the Letter:
Seek The Light Only
5/29/10 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Question asked by Timothy: Lord, what do you say, regarding those who take it upon themselves to be “spiritual warriors”, rebuking demons in Your name?
[YahuShua answered] "Have I not spoken to this already? Is My will not made clear?... One who endeavors to gain advantage, over that which they know nothing about, shall surely be ensnared by it. There are those who are chosen by The Father, in whom I dwell, who may rebuke demons in My name, but only those to whom it is given. And it is not of their own authority, but My authority, which comes from The Father... For I am in The Father and He is in Me.
Have you not read the words of My servant, who prepared My way before Me, when he said, “No one can receive anything, unless God has given it”... For apart from Me, one can do nothing! Vanity! People, who practice such offenses, walk in pride... Neither knowing Me nor My will, nor have they asked Me. Have I not said, those who seek to understand the dark, both understanding of the dark and of the light will be removed? For one who seeks to do battle, with the hosts of the high ones, will fail... They will be severely injured."
"What is man, then?... He is but flesh, having no power at all... His pride speaks in vain, a false glory. And so he continually turns to his own devices, deceiving himself... Thinking he stands, though he has fallen. And so he runs, running into a battle which leads to the pit, where his injuries form scars, scars of false glory... Scars leading to death, putrefying sores, wounds that will not heal, which infect the whole of his body. Yet he continues on in his pride, unable to see that he has indeed fallen, that he is cast down, resting instead atop his self-made laurels, saying within himself, “Look at my accomplishments, look upon all I have done.” All the while satan laughs, saying, “Behold my acolytes... See how these men of battle have become like me.
Sons of men, I alone bear the scars of battle!...
Behold, I bear them in My hands and feet...
I bear the stripes, of which I received in the house of My brothers...
For this is life!...
The only Victory, in a battle which was won from the beginning.
My sons, beloved sons, you are not warriors, not one of you. You are the victims, the spoils of war, servants serving the master of your choice... one pulling the veil down over your eyes, holding it in place because of your pride and securing it because of your arrogance... And The Other, removing it quickly, according to the light of your new understanding, which flows from The Beloved, and the knowledge of Him who is The Only Way."
