Good morning, Heartdwellers. The Lord’s peace and joy be with you today.
“All of you I have brought together for a purpose. Each of you have gifts and attributes the other is missing. Haven't you noticed that? No two are alike? How I delight in your differences and how I delight when I see you making use of yourselves melded into, one, providing for the needs of others.
Even as it is written: Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty wil l supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality, as it is written: “The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little.” 2 Cor. 8:13-‐15
“This world is a very lonely place and part of your testimony as belonging to Me is that you go about doing good where you can. By this, all men will know that you are Mine. You were right when you said that I never give up on anyone and you shouldn't either.
“MyBrides, all around you I have placed those with needs that you have the wherewithal to meet. But your society is so corrupted with private interests that you are insulated to the point where you don’t notice, unless you are listening very carefully to My Spirit, in which case you will inquire as to the needs of those around you.
“This is an exercise in both selflessness, obedience and patience. Taking the time from your own personal interests to insure the needs of others is a trait of My Disciple. How shallow your society is, and has deliberately been designed by the enemy to isolate. Yes, he is well practiced in manipulation to isolate the weakm and lonely that he may devour them and separate them from Me, giving them no hope whatsoever.
“But when you respond to the needs of others out of love and compassion for your brother, as it is written, “love your brother as you love yourself”, you are doing more than acting in My stead.
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
And, just as an aside here, I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the difference between sheep and goats. When we raised sheep and angora goats, we noticed something about them. The goats are very aggressive –they’ll butt the sheep right out of the food, right out of the grains and the alfalfa if you let them. They’re very aggressive and the sheep are more meek and tend to hang back and be pushed around more easily.
And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’
Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ Matthew 25:31-‐40
“So, I am assigning you, in this very moment, the task of enquiring about the state of those around you. Whether it be brother, sister, mother, father, neighbor or classmate. I want you to go out of your way to be good to them. In this moment, you have very little concept of what you look like to Heaven. In Heaven, you will be stripped clean of all things done from the motive of self-‐interest. At that point all that will be left to you is what you did out of brotherly love and selflessness. Can you take a moment and consider what I am saying, graphically? Everything you've done for yourself and your own desires beyond the realm of absolute necessity–the merits of EVERYTHING -‐will be removed from you.
“This is why the wedding guest was removed from the banquet. Simply stated, he lived for himself and had no covering.”
But, Lord, isn't that works righteousness?
“Well, in a sense you could say that, but remember, I am not talking about salvation or justification-‐which is by faith alone. No, here I am talking about rank and position. There are many, many layers and dimensions to Heaven. There is a place called The Outer Darkness, which is reserved for those who are saved but did very little for others in their lives. This is as it should be Clare. Believe Me, this is justice. The more you resemble Me, the closer to the Glory of the Throne you will be.”
But Lord, in the outer darkness, You said there will be grinding and gnashing of the teeth.
“Yes, indeed there will. The recognition of the selfishness of your life will at first be very painful to witness. It is not something you can run and hide from; it will be evident to all. And many of those who live for themselves are blind to their nakedness, so it will be a shock to them. My Love, when you make good deeds a habit pattern of your life, you go around convicting My “blind” Body of their own nakedness. The more long-‐suffering and generous your charity, the more convicted they become. I know you have felt this way, because I have taken the time to convict you, on many occasions.
“This world is topsy-‐turvey, Clare. What is applauded by men is a disgrace in Heaven. And what is looked upon as a waste of time and energy on behalf of others, in Heaven is applauded. Men's consciences are just terribly deformed and it is only through My grace that those who have been raised improperly ever come to an understanding of good and bad.
“You are My most exquisite of all creatures, My People. And the more you resemble Me, the greater your reward in Heaven. I have given you intelligence, reason, and free will. Note that the greater your vigilance over others, the greater My vigilance and reward, both now and in the age to come, over you. Press in therefore, with these gifts, My Beloved. There is a crown waiting for those who run to win until the end.
“I am coming soon. Make the best of time left to you.”
