Thus Says The Lord Regarding Capital Punishment and Suicide

9/3/05 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear (Regarding capital punishment, suicide, and cremation)

Listen, O peoples of the earth, and have understanding, for thus says The Lord: The penalty of sin is death. Thus all who have sinned shall surely die; all must rest, all shall lie down in death. Yet there is a people who shall not sleep, nor shall they lie down in death, for the time has come, says The Lord; a people who shall be awake at My coming, a people who have received of the divine gift, a people who know Me and in whom I am known, for I see of Myself within them. They shall be lifted up, not preceding those who have fallen asleep in Messiah; this is the first harvest and resurrection... For there is but One Way, One Truth, and One Life! From the beginning, there is but One!

Yet there is another who is cast down, who goes about to and fro in all the earth, perpetuating lies and spreading forth abomination, leading many away from the Truth. From the very beginning, satan was a deceiver and a murderer;  he has never been on the side of truth. From the beginning, he has sought to ensnare My people and destroy My nation. For the heart of man is easily swayed, by the deceit of his own heart is he led away, on account of his flesh he becomes entangled... Thus their adulteries are many, and their idolatries have no end. 
Behold, hand in hand they march toward their destruction, embracing the lies, as they parade their transgression openly in the streets. For the wisdom of the wise has perished, and the knowledge of the prudent has turned to dust. For the people are void, they all have itching ears; as cattle to the slaughter, or as birds hastening to the snare, they give heed to those of clever words, failing to perceive it will cost them their lives... Therefore, the mouth of Sheol is open, the pit is dug deep, and the generation of My wrath shall surely be cast into it! Indeed, they shall all walk through the valley, until death comes to claim them and the grave hides them away! Says The Lord. 
 

Therefore, hear the word of My mouth and humble yourselves, O sons of men, that you may see with new eyes and restored vision: If you kill for the sake of justice, though you yourselves remain unjust, have you not transgressed twice in your spirit? Yea, three times have you sinned against The Lord your God. For man knows not the justice of God, nor can he comprehend the judgments of The Most High... YOU SLOTHFUL AND MOST WICKED GENERATION, YOU ARE ALL MURDERERS! Even to murder the murderer is murder! You do always transgress! You know nothing of the power of God or of My mercy revealed in The Messiah, whom you call Christ, nor are you able to search the hearts of men! 
O foolish and deceived generation, if a man has committed murder and you put him to death, you have placed yourselves in the seat of judgment, making yourselves equal with God! Thus “blasphemy” shall be written upon your heads, and “murderer” shall be your new name! Yes, punish the man who has committed murder, yet kill him not, lest he turn to Me in sincere repentance, in The Messiah’s name, and be forgiven. Shall you then slaughter the sons of God, piercing the hearts of those made new?! For those whom I have cleansed are clean, and all who accept The Son of Salvation are made new... O peoples of the earth, how long shall you tread the wide path?! How long shall you walk in the way of Cain and run greedily in the error of Balaam, holding fast in your rebellion as Korah?! For your sins are many; behold, they are increased beyond measure!


Shall sin judge sin and declare the punishment before the time?! 
Is not My judgment, that of capital punishment, for all who have sinned;
And destruction for all who refuse to repent?!...
 
Yet I sent My only Begotten Son to suffer your sentences for you;
Therefore, you do greatly err... 

Peoples of the earth, where are your hearts?!
Err on the side of hope and salvation in Messiah, 
Where one can not err!



Therefore, concerning those who kill the body, yet can not harm the soul, I say this: He who murders his brother has committed great evil; even he who has conceived of murder in his heart is guilty; and those who carry out capital punishment are of the same. For they have put themselves in the judgment seat; behold, they have placed themselves upon My throne! Yet you, O sons of men, know not what tomorrow will bring, nor can you look upon the soul of a man; even all his thoughts are hidden from you... Thus only God shall make an end of evil! Only God shall destroy the wicked of heart and cast the sons of satan into eternal darkness, into the void of lifeless nothingness! For only He who grants life may take it away! I AM THE LORD! Or have you forgotten whom you shall fear, The One alone who can destroy both body and soul?! 
Beloved, I have seen how your hearts grow cold and how your souls waver. I have looked upon those who strike themselves down, upon those ensnared by the devil. For the sin of suicide is very grievous, a sin which only multiplies suffering and increases pain, of which the dead have no knowledge, for there is only silence in the grave. Therefore hear and understand, those who take their own lives are twice murdered! For they were first murdered in their heart by the devil! Yet to kill is to kill, even of one’s self... YOU SHALL NOT KILL! Commands The Lord.
Yet greater still is the sin of those who murder the innocent, those hidden in the womb; behold, even all who voice their agreement shall not escape the wrath of God when it comes! For My anger is kindled, and I shall surely stretch out My hand against them!...Behold, the sins of this generation reach unto Heaven! A murderous and most wicked generation, a great multitude who stand in agreement, a whole generation seeking the penalty of death, as they shake their fists toward Heaven! Yes, by your own admission you are guilty! Behold, according to your own laws, YOU should be put to death! YOU are the ones who should be sitting in the chair! HYPOCRITES! You have destroyed yourselves! Says The Lord.



O foolish generation, you are selfish and have no understanding; 
Your knowledge is corrupt, and you have played the fool;
Thus your folly is evident, and your blood shall be upon your own heads... 

Behold the people, look upon all these inhabitants of the earth, 
A whole generation not desired, a people who are wise in their own eyes; 
An arrogance which has no equal!...

Your bodies are not your own! 
You are but branches growing from The Vine!...
 
FOOLISH GENERATION, YOUR LIFE IS NOT YOUR OWN!... 

Apart from Me, there is no wisdom! 
Apart from The Holy One, there is no life! 
Apart from The Vine, there are no branches!


Behold, the leaves wither and the fruit has been cast down, for the people have no favor with God. Thus every dry branch must be broken off and cast into the fire, all corrupt fruit must be left and tread down. For the temple of God has lost its form; its comeliness has departed, every chamber is empty; for the heart of man is hard, and his countenance unyielding. Thus the pride of man has become a chasm, both deep and wide... Behold, the whole world rebels against Me! They seek to destroy My dwelling place, as they endeavor to cast their Maker to the ground!

Therefore, thus says The Lord your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: Tear down the temple of God, and I shall raise it up again! Behold, at the Last Day I shall raise them ALL up again! So then, again I say to you, if one heavy-laden with sorrow, with hopelessness and pain, ends his own life, he has indeed sinned... Twice murdered; slain first in his heart by the devil, then in his body by his own hand. Is he lost? No. For the man dead at his own hand, coerced by the devil, will live again, because I am The Resurrection and The Life who shall call forth both the first and the second. For all who have sinned are dead in their sins, yet by Me they are made alive again, as many as drink My blood and eat of My flesh... For I am The Life Without End, The Only Fountain of Living Waters, The Bread of God which came down from Heaven and gave life to the world! Behold, from the beginning I had overcome all things! From the very foundation of the world, I AM HE! 
Thus all who have died but sleep, for I am The Lord and I shall raise them up again. And of those who are Mine, I shall not lose one, for I am The Lord and I shall raise them up again; even those cremated and those long since turned to dust, yes, all shall rise. For from the dust you came forth, by My knowledge you were made, and by My breath you became living souls... Can not God raise up children to Abraham, from the very stones, if He so chooses? This I have already told you. Why then, O peoples of the earth, do you rant and rave and wail like the heathen, as one who has no hope?! Where is your trust?! Indeed, you have forgotten your God, and are greatly deceived; you do not know Me, nor will you believe. For if you knew Me, then you would know The Father also, and understand that all things are possible with God. For all is given into My hand, and by Me do all things consist, for The Father and The Son are One. 
Therefore, let those who ask in faith receive, and let those who believe have understanding, for the fear of The Lord is indeed the beginning of wisdom. For I have already told you, that neither man nor angel can truly kill another, nor is satan able to raise the dead... Only The One who formed it can raise it up again, and only by the hand of Him who created it shall it be utterly destroyed. Thus if one refuses to be restored in the image of God, which I am, he shall surely perish, he shall be blotted out; his life shall be taken from him, and he shall never pass this way again; indeed, it shall be as though he had never been.
 

I am the perfect reflection of The Father, 
The Image of The Invisible God...
 
Behold, I died and am risen, and by My life you now live,
That you might become the perfect reflection of Me, 
The only One in whom is everlasting life...

Therefore, receive of Me as I truly am, that you may be born again; 
Put on the raiment of God and abide in His Kingdom,
Which was and is and is to come...


Life without end.
