Love Is...

(Please be sure to watch the video below - Love Is Not A Fight - Warren Barfield)

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (love), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity (love), I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity (love), it profits me nothing.

Charity suffers long, and is kind; charity envies not; charity vaunts not itself, is not puffed up,
Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;

Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;

Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Charity never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

And now abides faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (LOVE)  [1Cor13:1-13]

He that loves not knows not God; for God is love  [1Jn4:8]
But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us [Eph2:4]
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God  [1Jn4:7]

I Said, Lazarus Come Forth

The trying [testing] of your FAITH will come in many forms. Just as Abraham, it will seem more than you can bear at times, but obedience came through all you suffered. Now comes trial to see if it is pure. Yea, at times, you may wonder, ‘Did the Lord really ask that?’ Your flesh will bring doubt; satan would join in with adding fear…’What if it wasn’t God, won’t I be a fool?’ I speak once, yea twice, but men perceive it not. Ask me to confirm and I shall, for I tell you to test the spirit to see if it is of Me or not. I will not go against My written word.

The Death that Matters

It is being [and has been] drilled into your spirit to seek Me in all things, no matter how trivial. Come and STAY in My presence, even if the flesh screams a hundred reasons why you can leave. You will know when it is time to go about your business.

Think upon Jesus your Messiah in the garden of Gethsemene. He left only to see if His disciples were obeying Him to watch, and pray, yet he found them asleep three different times. Disappointed but not undaunted, He returned to cry out alone to Me. His flesh resisted so profoundly; so great was His travail and earnest that He sweat drops of blood.

Have you come to that point in My presence, where flesh cries out for release? It is true that many of you have perspired as you travailed, but not to the point of sweating blood. Wait upon Me and your flesh will be in awe in My holy presence. Perseverance has its rewards. Some of the hardest battles that a warrior endures are those he fights alone. To pick up your cross and die to self is one of those lonely battles. Cry out to Me.

I will strengthen you to endure in the crucifying of fleshly desires and sin. My resurrection power will not only restore you, but indeed, I shall be glorified through you, as Christ Jesus takes His proper place upon the throne of your heart and soul. 

 Yes, Christ in you, the hope of glory. Who calls out for repentance, warning of the second death? Who tells the wicked to forsake their ‘way’ and the unrighteous man his ‘thoughts’, saying, Turn to Me and I will have mercy on you; and to your God, for I will abundantly pardon [Is 55:7]

Prepare for Exodus

If you are hearing to seek Me, then there is still time. Woe unto those who seek Me NOT, whilst there is the call sounding loudly, for when judgment comes, they shall fear for they shall be found wanting. Their idols will not save them. 

 The death angel will bypass only those with the blood of the Lamb [Jesus the Christ and Messiah] – yea, His holy blood upon the windows of their soul and the doorposts of their heart. These are the sealed ones. 

For the time of a new exodus is here. Multitudes will begin exodus spiritually [to come of Eygpt, Babylon] whilst many [but not all] will begin a physical exodus. How will you know what to do unless you seek Me, willing to obey. Diligently seek Me while I may be found; call upon Me while I am near [Is 55:6]

Shake yourself from the dust, arise and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose yourself from the bonds of thy neck, o captive daughter of Zion.

For thus says the Lord God, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause. Now therefore, what have I here, Says the Lord, that My people is taken away for nought [nothing]? They that rule over them make them ‘to howl’; says the Lord and My name continually every day is blasphemed.

My Voice Is Heard Through My People

Therefore My people shall know My name; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He that does speak: behold, it is I.

How beautiful upon the mountain are the feet of he that brings good tidings; that publishes peace; that brings good tidings of good; that publishes salvation, that says unto Zion, thy God reigns.

Thy watchmen shall lift up their voice: with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion. The Lord has made bare his holy arm; in the eyes of ‘ALL THE NATIONS’: and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. [Jn 4:24 God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship Him in spirit and in truth]

Prepare Ye

Listen carefully to Me and you will know in your spirit what is required of you to do. For as with the old, so with the new, for I am the same yesterday today and forever. First the inside of the cup must be cleaned, then the outside; first the beam must be removed from your eye, then you can see clearly to remove the splinter in your brother’s eye.

Depart ye, depart ye, go you out from there, touch no unclean thing, go ye out of the midst of her [Egypt /Babylon], be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord.

For you shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight [flee], for the Lord will GO BEFORE YOU, and the God of Israel will be your re-reward. [Is 56:8, 10-12] [you will go forth confidently and calmly, for I guide those clearly whose heart is for Me; those who hear]

Behold my servant [Jesus the Messiah] shall deal prudently, He shall be exalted and extolled and held very high. So shall he sprinkle MANY NATIONS; the kings shall shut their mouths at Him; for THAT which had not been told them ‘SHALL THEY SEE’’ and THAT which they had not heard, shall they consider [read Isaiah chapter 52]

They Who Seek Me are Called Out Ones

The ways of Babylon have invaded My ekklesia; yea, but they who seek Me, them shall I save for I have called them out, as they sought Me. My ekklesia, My people will assemble in chosen places.

The righteous perish, and no man lays it to heart; and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the EVIL TO COME. [Is 57:1] … Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling block out of the way of My people.

For thus says the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy, ‘I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. For I will not contend forever, neither will I be wroth, for the spirit should fail before Me and the souls which I have made. I have seen his ways and will heal him; I will lead him also and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners. [Is 57:14-16]

Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice as a trumpet, and show My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Yet they seek Me DAILY and delight to know My ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of Me the ordinances of JUSTICE: they take delight in approaching to God [Is 58:1-2]

Dare to Obey

Is this not a fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to deal your bread to the hungry, and you bring the poor that are cast out to your house? 

When you see the naked, that you cover him, and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh? Then shall your light break forth as the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before thee, the GLORY of THE LORD shall be your reward. Then shall you call, and [I] the Lord shall answer and shall say, Here I am. 

 If you take away from the midst of you the yoke, the putting forth of the finger [pointing fingers] and speaking vanity, and if you draw out your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul: then shall thy light rise in obscurity and thy darkness be as the noonday [Is 58: 6 -10]

And I, the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones, and thou shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places, you shall raise up the FOUNDATIONS [Yhwh, the Rock - Christ Jesus the cornerstone] of many generations, and you shall be called, the repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. [Is 58:11-14]

Turn to Me

Repent of all that is not of Me, and delight in seeking Me, so shall you call your walls Salvation; and your gates Praise. I the Lord shall be to you an everlasting light, and I shall be your glory.

I say…Go through, go through the gates, prepare ye the ways of the people, cast up, cast up the highway, gather out stones, lift up a STANDARD for the people.

Behold the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the world, Say you to the daughter of Zion: Behold, thy salvation comes; behold His reward is with him and his work before him. And they shall call them redeemed, The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord and you shall be called SOUGHT OUT, A city NOT FORSAKEN. [Is 62: 10-12]

Bring Forth

I have stayed with you through the false labour. Now is the time to bring forth.
Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, o daughter of Zion like a woman in travail: for now shall you go forth out of the city and you shall dwell in the field, and you shall go even to Babylon and there shall you be delivered, there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies. [Micah 4:10]

Now also many NATIONS are gathered against thee that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.

But they know NOT the thoughts of the Lord, neither understand they His counsel, for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor [wheat into the barn]

NOW is the time to bring to fruition all that I have told you I would do. It is simply a matter of obedience fulfilled. You know what has been required of you. Delay no longer; thus I command you. I will have a holy and set apart people, and through them, I shall be glorified. That which I have told you is about to come forth…

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it shall surely come, it will not tarry. [Hab 2:3]

Jesus said unto her, Said I not unto thee that, if thou would believe, thou should see the glory of God?

Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, Father, I thank Thee that Thou hast heard Me. And I knew that Thou hearest Me always: but because of the people which stand by, I said it, that they may bleive that Thou hast sent Me.

And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin.

Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. [Jn 11:40 –Jn 11:44]
