Set Your House in Order
8/13/11 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For a Brother in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear Set Your House in Order
A Brother in Christ asked this question: I know The Lord has said correction is not to come from without, but from within. I also know that He has appointed me as head over this house. So is it my place, as head of the household, to correct the younger brothers and sisters staying here, or is that the responsibility of their parents alone? Or was I just “correcting from without”?
[The Lord answered] My son, did I not say to you that it is time to set your house in order? How is it you have not understood My speech? For the outward appearance of a man means little, yet the inward man I know, and this is the house which must first be set in order. For what man is able to manage the affairs of his earthly household, when his spiritual house remains in disarray? And what temple is offered to The Lord without first being cleaned and swept? Yet you I have made, by My own hands were you created, even now you are as clay.
Beloved son, you are that temple which is being cleaned and swept. How is it then you yet hold on to those things which are yours no longer? Why do you grasp at that which is being swept away?
Now concerning the correction and discipline of the younger brothers and sisters in your household, here is wisdom: A daughter can have only one father, and the father’s friend is to share in the father’s concern, because he is a friend and also a brother. Yet the father is the head of his daughter, and the friend is only to lend an ear. And one who shares his household with others shall lead by example, remembering that the host is also a servant, even to every guest, no matter the length of their stay.
Therefore, seek to make your house
A house of God, both within and without.
For you are My son, and these
With you are My sons and daughters.
Therefore let all of you agree together
And make haste, for the angels of Heaven
Must soon ascend and descend upon The Son of Man...
Says The Lord.
