Peace to you!
Yes, just as our Lord is recorded to have said:
"I have come in My Father's name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive." John 5:43
Ah, well. It was prophesied:
" ...go to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them. For you [are] not sent to a people of unfamiliar speech and of hard language, [but] to the house of Israel, not to many people of unfamiliar speech and of hard language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, had I sent you to them, they would have listened to you. But the house of Israel will not listen to you, because they will not listen to Me; for all the house of Israel [are] impudent and hard-hearted." Ezekiel 3:4-7
But so long as he directs me... and sends me... I must share what he gives me:
"Like adamant stone, harder than flint, I have made your forehead; do not be afraid of them, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they [are] a rebellious house. ... receive into your heartall My words that I speak to you, and hear with your ears. And go, get to the captives, to the children of your people, and speak to them and tell them, 'Thus says [JHVH,'... whether they hear, or whether they refuse."Ezekiel 3:8-11
I am, by NO means the Prophet Ezekiel. I have aspired to such a position. Nor am I to say 'Thus says [JHVH]." But... the SAME Spirit that was in Ezekiel is the One that is in me - I do not lie to you. And THAT Spirit HAS said to me, on many occasions: "speak to them and tell them... whether they hear, or whether they refuse." And when I ask the One speaking, "Who is this, please?" (although I haven't had to do so for some years, now, because I KNOW his voice... umistakably, now), the answer I always receive... ALWAYS... is "I am the Christ." And when I ask his name, he ALWAYS replies, "I am JAHESHUA MISCHAJAH, the Son and Chosen One of the Most Holy One of Israel, JAH of Armies."
What, then, am I to do? What would ANY here do if it happened to them? They would go and they would speak. Whether the people listened... or not. They would be lying if they said they wouldn't... because it really isn't UP to them. Acts 9:6, 15, 16; 15:16
And so, I go. And I "speak." And I will continue to do so, as he directs me... whether folks hear... or refrain.
I bid you peace and thank you for your kind patience.
YOUR servant and a slave of Christ,
