A Bitter Cup, a Heavy Burden
5/25/12 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord: There are some among this little flock who have taken it upon themselves to speak on My behalf, striving to attain that which they do not understand. Yet they are no mouthpieces, nor have I called them to this office. Yet sons and daughters they remain.
Therefore, this is what I say to them: Draw back your hand from the page, and place your pen back on the table, remove your fingers from the keys, and make no effort to operate within the gift of prophecy. For upon you this gift is not bestowed, nor have I marked you with My signet.
Beloved ones, search the Scriptures so you may know; read My Letters, that you may understand. For the cup of The Lord is a heavy burden, a bitter cup filled with tears and sorrow. Therefore, I ask you, are you able to drink it? I tell you the truth, you are not at all able. For you do not know what you seek, nor do you understand.
For the weight of this burden is very heavy, a path heavy-laden with suffering and death, great tribulation. For as it is written: My way is not easy. And those sent to prepare My way before Me shall indeed be persecuted and slandered, hated by all nations. Thus I ask you once again, are you able to drink of this cup? Are you able to bear the full weight of this burden? Beloved, it is not My will that you do so, says The Lord.
