Over the years I’ve received many comments from readers that are similar to this one, who believe that God’s message should be one of hope and not fear. I felt encouraged from within to attempt to impart some knowledge and understanding as to exactly why the messages we deliver in these End Times and during this Tribulation period contain both hope and a warning. It is an example of how the truth can also be a double-edged sword.
Imagine: You’re standing on the side of a busy street, and a friend of yours, someone you care for and love, steps out in front of an oncoming bus. Would you simply call out to the person “I hope you make it across safely!” or, would you call out a warning “Watch out! There’s a car coming!”
More than likely, the majority would do the latter and it is the same in regards to this ministry’s service to Father and Christ Jesus. We are to spread the light of truth, and at times, the truth can be a double-edged sword.
There are many people today who have been taught and also believe that Yahweh is a God of Love. And this is the truth, but not the whole truth. We know via the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments that Yahweh is most certainly a God of incredible love, who is also capable of wrath. It is this wrath that will be poured out upon this world and all of mankind that has not been Raptured to safety at Armageddon. It is like the speeding car coming down the street and many, many people are standing in front of that car and are in danger of being run over. And yet...for so many it's not that they don't see, it's that they refuse to see.
Isaiah 30:10 They say to the seers, "Do not see," and to the prophets, "Do not prophesy the truth to us. Tell us flattering things. Prophesy illusions.
Yes, there is much hope in Christ’s return. However… as one of Christ’s Ministers, I am also obligated in my service to him and Yahweh both, to deliver their message truth. Not just part of the truth, as so many shepherds of the day do, but the whole truth – because I have received the truth, and I am under obligation by the Creator.
Proverbs 4:7 “Wisdom is supreme—so get wisdom. And whatever else you get, get understanding.”
And as a minister, having acquired Wisdom about the Truth, it is not only our duty to spread the message as far as we can to creation, but if we fail to warn others, the Creator holds us accountable. Ezekiel 3:17-18 gives insight on this. "Son of man, I have made you a watchman over the house of Israel. When you hear a word from My mouth, give them a warning from Me. If I say to the wicked person: You will surely die, but you do not warn him—you don't speak out to warn him about his wicked way in order to save his life—that wicked person will die for his iniquity. Yet I will hold you responsible for his blood.”
It is for these reasons, and more, that I will not follow the advice given me that I shared with you at the start of this article. My heart simply won’t allow it. I am not here to please or placate mankind who choose not to believe that Father is capable of such wrath because it is Father and Christ that I serve first and foremost. I am not concerned with who I might please or if they might agree with me or like me more if I tell only partial truths because I serve them out of love; regardless of what they might think of the messages I deliver, or of me.
Proverbs 8:7 -- For my mouth tells the truth, and wickedness is detestable to my lips.
I am a human, who, though sinful just like everyone else, chooses to accept and believe the truth of Father’s love and wrath that has been shared with me. And I am also a servant of Yahweh and Christ Jesus who does her very best to be obedient and follow Yahweh’s commands. If I were to not adhere to the command of sharing Yahweh’s truth, it would be a disservice to Father and Christ. And if I were not to sound the warning of the coming wrath which is sounded out of Love for Her creation it would also be a disservice to mankind, as it is truth that will set you free.
John 8:32 You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
One cannot exchange the truth of God for a lie. Nor can you coat the truth with lies.
Romans 1:25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served something created instead of the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Job 13:4 But you coat [the truth] with lies; you are all worthless doctors.
It is the light of this double-edged sword of truth that shines brightly and that encourages those who look upon it to also look inwardly at themselves and perhaps come to terms with their wicked practices. And it might cause fear, because seeing and acknowledging the truth would mean changing and repenting – and of perhaps losing one's pride and humbling oneself and admitting Yahweh’s true power. But it’s a humble heart in addition to a belief in Christ as Lord and Savior that will actually save.
Psalm 15:2 The one who lives honestly, practices righteousness, and acknowledges the truth in his heart --
The truth is a double-edged sword because it reveals things for what they really are. It is a balanced view and message that is one of hope, and a warning that might cause fear because for each of us, the reality might either be salvation, or, eternal death.
2 Corinthians 2:14-17. "death leading to death...life leading to life".
