OBEDIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING

David Nix

Tuesday, 1/15/2013

"I am the Lord Jesus, your Messiah and gentle shepherd. These are words to be placed within the Words of the Latter Rain and are words to help my people to go deeper into our presence and to grow in understanding. We have blessed our people with many words and soon many will know the power of the words of the latter days. Cherish the words that you have been given and praise us for allowing you to receive them before most upon the earth. There are blessings still not known that have been given unto our tiny remnant. You have grown in knowledge for much has been given and mysteries have been revealed unto you, but knowledge alone is not enough. Truth must be recognized, accepted and applied and it is the application of knowledge that leads unto understanding. Wisdom is the perfect union of knowledge and understanding and we desire our people to go deeper in understanding so that you will grow in heavenly wisdom. You must hear our voice clearly for we guide our people upon the path of truth. Truth has no power if you do not accept it and once you accept truth you must apply it to your life. Many recognize truth but do not accept truth for acceptance of heavenly truth often leads to change. Many are content to remain in muted light for walking in heavenly light shall bring your enemy unto you. The evil ones desire all men to walk in darkness or in muted light so they keep men from the light of truth and from understanding.

 

Truth mixed with lies is not truth for the application of truth is tainted and corrupted by that which is not true. Our Sabbath day is truth and light. Worshipping us is truth and light. Worship on Sunday and breaking our holy Sabbath takes the truth of worship but keeps men from the truth of our Sabbath. To reach the place of understanding you must obey truth as truth and not truth mixed with lies. The power of worship is a great power, and there is power anytime men worship me and my Father, but worship on our Sabbath days is the greater power for it is rooted in truth and is acted upon in truth. Applied truth that leads to understanding and heavenly wisdom must be done according to our Word of truth and not done according to the traditions or false teachings of men. The Lord God changes not, and I am the same   yesterday, today and forever so to apply truth to lead to understanding you must apply truth as we command. There is a path of truth that requires your obedience. If men do not obey revealed truth then the path of truth ceases for what they learn is a corrupt truth. Much of our Word is understood with the mind but only obedience unto truth will give the understanding of the spirit that will lead unto wisdom. See our word of power as found in 1 John 2:3-6 "And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.  (4)  He that saith, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.  (5)  But whosoever keeps his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.  (6) He that saith he abides in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” Men are to keep my commandments for our Word is truth. Obedience of truth revealed will lead unto understanding for in obedience your heart is yielded and it is the yielded heart and the surrendered man who shall have our love perfected within. If you say that you believe in my Word then you must walk according to my Word and not according to your traditions or your understanding gained through the threshing instruments of men. All men must obey as they understand so Satan wins victories when the understanding of men is built upon half-truths and lies. Is a half-truth really true or does any darkness cause the power of light to be diminished? Partial truth brings no power but we judge based upon the heart. Many in the world worship with pure hearts and they love me and my Father with all of their heart, mind and soul but their worship is at times based upon lies and that which is not true. If one obeys truth as understood they are not punished for their lack of knowledge, but if heavenly truth is revealed and recognized but not accepted then unto that man sin is imputed. Do you not see why of you much is required? You have been delivered truth beyond most upon the earth so you must obey the truth given. You are free in truth when you obey truth.

 

See our truth found in Romans 6:16-18  "Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?  (17)  But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.  (18) Being then made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness.” Obedience must be from the heart for understanding with your mind does not always lead unto change. You do not worship me with your mind; you worship with your whole heart in spirit and truth. There is great power in belief and many believe with great faith, and their faith is rewarded, but is belief not stronger when rooted in truth and in light with no darkness? See my words as recorded in John 7:37-38 "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, if any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.  (38) He that believes on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”  You must hunger and thirst for truth and once truth is given you must recognize truth, accept truth and apply truth through obedience. There is no power in truth if you recognize it, accept it but do not live by it. Belief is not rooted in truth only for faith is often not seen, but belief should be rooted in faith and belief in me and my Father. Must you have all knowledge and understanding before you will accept and obey? You know that I am the light, the truth and the way so trust in me and believe. Obedience requires faith and belief but you do not have to understand everything to obey. It is obeying truth revealed that will lead to more truth. Do you not see my people? So many who call on my name obey truth not rooted in my Word so their path of truth ends. They have a lot of truth but each path of truth ends before the fullness can be understood for the truth they follow is partial truth or truth that is false.

Obedience will lead to understanding and understanding shall lead unto wisdom. Our Sabbaths can easily be seen in our Word but the truth of our Sabbaths shall only be known unto those who obey. Understanding comes with obedience for as you accept and obey more truth shall become known. Seek to grow in knowledge and understanding. Trust in me and delight in all my ways. See the truth found in Psalms 37:3-6 "Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shall you dwell in the land, and verily you shall be fed.  (4)  Delight yourself also in the Lord; and he shall give you the desires of your heart.  (5)  Commit your way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.  (6) And he shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your judgment as the noonday.”  Commit your way unto me, trust in my perfect love and will and walk in obedience to truth revealed and understood.”
