2006.01.20 — The Word of God at the synod of the Saint John, the Baptizer
At the turn between the feast of the Epiphany and that of My baptizer, John, I, the Lord, set into My book of today a feast again, My coming again, for I am the Teacher of those who faithfully separate the darkness from the light and put it away from them and go on My way with the light in it. Amen.
Oh, how shall I not teach them, how shall I not exhort those who have chosen Me as their life? It is written that «the life is the light of the people, and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it», (John 1:5) and after the resurrection I went up on the right side of My Father, I asked the Father and I said to Him: «Father, My disciples are in the world but they are not of the world. While I was with them in the world I kept them from My enemies and theirs. Father, keep them from now on, and make Our love perfect in them, and let they be one as We are one, Father». (See also John 17:12–26) Amen. This is how John, the Baptizer, worked, when he was finishing the work for which he had come on the earth, because John was born for the announcing of the righteous One and he announced Me baptizing Me in Jordan with water, and the Father baptized Me with the Holy Spirit, sending Him above Me in the image of a dove, and the Father spoke through the Holy Spirit: «This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased». (Matt. 3:17) Amen. And John testified about Me that he had to grow less so that I might grow bigger, and he told those who were preaching about Me: «After me comes He Who is mightier than I, the thong of Whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and loosen and He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire, Whose fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly cleanse His threshing floor, and will gather the wheat into His barn, but the chaff will burn with unquenchable fire». (See Mark 1: 7, 8; Luke 3:16, 17)
Oh, My people, I have always wanted to speak about the spirit of confession and I have always wanted to exhort you. Moses’ Law and the prophets of the Scriptures and the Psalms confessed about Me that I would come. And here it is how I come. I will keep coming until I perfectly finish the work of «new heaven and new earth», as this Scripture has said.
Oh, My people, learn from the saints, from Me and from the Father, learn to confess Me, that you have been called to this work. The saints have confessed Me, and I have also confessed them by My word, as I confessed John, My baptizer, and I confessed the saints by signs and wonders, from Me and up to your time, when I have protected you by a mighty hand to have you as the confessing people, because the protection and the victory of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit was great, very great, for you protection from heaven to earth, so that no one may do you any harm, and I confess Myself into your midst, and let the Father and the saints confess Me as well, and you are to announce those that we confess from those that are heavenly in order to fulfill the Scripture of the kingdom of the heavens on a new earth doing away with lawlessness everywhere, and when it will no longer be in the mind and works of the man, then satan will no longer have work either, and he will have an end to his work through the man, and the man will have an end to his work through satan as well, and I, the Lord, will first set to their place the angels who fell down by serving the spirit of the haughtiness of the man built by My hand and out of the dust, and in whom I breathed then the spirit of life to have him as My kingdom, as the God’s joy and delight and of His angels’.
Two thousand years ago, John confessed Me at Jordan, and he said: «Behold, the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world!» (John 1:29) Then he confessed that I would wash away with My blood, shed on the cross, the man’s sin and the eternal sufferance of his sins. He told the people to leave off sins, first by confessing them, for one confesses with his mouth and believes within his heart, and God shows His mercy to those who know how to get up from death.
Oh, My baptizer, this is how I have always taught My people, and this is how I have testified that he is My people. Amen.
– However, Lord, I want to tell it about the Scriptures, which say that the saints will judge the world. I was a holy man, and this is how I judged the world. All those who are holy within their spirit, soul and body, they have already judged the world, and they are no longer in the world, when they stay within its midst.
The world is judged within the man’s body itself. Everyone who takes away the spirit of the world from him, that one has already judged the world. However, there still is a greater judgment of the world. You and I and all the confessing saints, who have spoken out by their mouth the sins of the world, were then to fall into agonies, for the world has been killing the saints for its sins, although it was already judged when it judged You and when it gave You to the cross to die, (See the selection topic: „The fearful judgment”, r.n.) but no one knew this at that time, of those from the world, that You were their salvation then and now when You have come and You have set Your church on its first stone, and when you set to work the mystery of the resurrection of the dead and a persistent work for the forgiveness of the sins of the creature, from its beginning and to those little of Yours by whom You have testified about Yourself far and wide by the word of Your coming for the resurrection of the dead, for a new heaven and a new earth, and for the justice that will be the gift of Your saints then, and who will have overcome the world within them. Amen. (See the selection topic: „Resurrection of the dead”, r.n.)
Oh, people, protected by God’s grace! If you are so much protected, you should work much and confess the Lord, Who comes to you, and you should not be rejoiced by your joy, but rather you should rejoice the Lord when you do this, for I had never had another joy than the work which I came for, because I was not the light which I was confessing about, but the Lord was, Whom I, together with the Father and the Holy Spirit, revealed Him at Jordan in a wonderful manner by the work of the Holy Spirit and by the voice of the Father of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
The Lord has been teaching you more and more with every passing day, and your teachers who have come from Him also teach you to get used more and more perfectly to the work of the confession of God, the Word, confessing people, calling the people to life, to the light and to the wisdom from above. You have to start first with love, then with your thought and then with your confession, glorifying the Lord’s coming by all these works, for you, the sons of this people, have to be the same in all the things of the Lord and then in your things, and always, always to receive the work of His peace upon you and among you, so that you may be able to work through it.
There is no peace without the Lord. Within all your occupations and confessions you should have and work through the peace that comes from God. Be flexible and grow within the fruit of the Spirit. Deny yourselves and give room to the Lord within you. This is how those, who hear the teaching of the heaven upon you, should live, because any good and living water has the place of its spring, and it springs from it over many on the earth. Amen.
I have spent with the Lord, with His angels and with you the feast of Epiphany. I have stayed humble, because the Lord has been glorified in the word over you. However, he has given me work upon you after that.
Grow in grace and multiply and fill the earth and have dominion over it, having the Lord as your Master. Amen. Let this word be a prophetic word, and You, Lord of those who are holy, seal the power of the fulfillment of my word delivered over to Your people of today, for all of Your promises, are great, and then eternal, Lord, Little and sacrificed Lamb, and the One Who forever is alive. Amen, amen, amen.
– Oh, I have glorified Myself upon you with the feast of My baptizer, My people. Give glory to My coming, son, and then let all My people know and see himself from the work of his confession, that he drinks of the same spring and he works out the same thought, and then he fulfills.
Peace to you, New Jerusalem, for it is written: «There is no peace without the Lord». Amen, amen, amen.
