Come to Me from Within
A Prophecy to the Inner Man
January 26, 1988
To My People,
If only I could bring you to understand that it is only as you come to me over My deepest challenges to your life that you come into My likeness and fulfil My will for your lives. It is your weaknesses and temptations—your desires—over which I call you to Me—not your good works and your “ministries.” Your weaknesses and temptations become your ministry as I shape you over them.
Why then do you leave the path that is truest to your own self for that which conforms you to ideas? For verily I say unto you, the path that is truest to your deepest being is the path that is truest to Me. It is only through the door of your deepest self that you can come to Me. Why then do you hide from your own self?
To hide from your own self is to hide from Me. I am the seat of all personality. To find Me, you must come through the seat of your own personality—your failures, your flaws, your shortcomings, your needs.
But why do you fear to face your failures? Have not I taken care of them all? Has not my blood paid the price? Why then do you fear? For verily I say unto you, the devil doth know that in the day you step through the door of your desires to come to Me you shall surely live—yes, you shall fulfil my great purpose for your life—for the pattern of your failures mirrors My pattern for your perfection. As you come to Me by the one which is flawed, you find the one which is not.
Therefore I ask you, what do you fear? Is it a hard thing to be humble?
You see that it is not a hard thing to be humble. For by humility I do not demean you. Humility is not to be brought low as to be conformed to the idea of what men call lowness. Humility is only to face yourself for who you really are. Humility is only to be honest toward yourself. By this I esteem you. I say then, is it such a hard thing to be honest? Why do you fear that which alone leads you to Me?
Look about you, My People. What do you see? What is missing among you? Is it not my Personality? Is it not the reflection of Who I am among you?
But what do I see? Every one of you strives after an idea—after an image—of Who I am. But you do not come to Me through who you truly are. You fear to face Me. But it is not Me you fear to face—but rather your own self.
You hide from yourself, and in my name you strive after an idea of Me—and therewith you cover yourself. You spin thought. You crave involvement. You “minister.” But you minister death, because you do not minister from Me—My Life, My Personality—because you do not minister from who you are [in Me]. You minister an image—a dead image. You have no personality. Is not this the tell tale sign of what you lack?
But is not this what marks the world?—that they do not reflect My Personality? Why therefore are you like the world, and what separates you from the world except that you vainly take My Name upon you?
For unless you come to Me through the door of your weakness, you do not come to Me, but to an idea of Me—an image. This is baal—the essence of false religion. You do not reflect My Personality. And unless you reflect My Personality, it is vanity and a curse for you to bear My Name.
What then would I say to you, My People?—you who come to Me but do not hear Me, you who use My name but do not know Me? I say to you, My people—Cease—Cease—Be still…within yourselves. Lay your mind to rest. Commit the idol houses of your mind to the grave—the house of your religious imagery erected in My Name to hide you from your own heart’s cry. Dismantle your understandings before Me—the essence of your pride. Disengage yourselves from the involvement wherewith you have clothed the frame of your baal house.
Hear Me, My People. Come to Me through the true door—the door of who you truly are before Me. Come to Me through your inadequacies, your hurts, your dreams and desires. For it is of these that the substance of My true call upon your life is made. It is here that I may impart unto you My very own Self—yea, My own Personality. For as you come to Me by these, the reflection of My Life in yours increases. And the measure of your holiness and your perfection, and of your fulfillment personal.
Do you not see that it is only as you are a conductor for My Personality that I may save others through you? And do you not realize that you only have love one to another to the measure you reflect My Personality one to another? For I am Love. And I am saving Life. Yea, my People, you speak of “love,” but know not whereof you speak. For to you, ”love” is an idea to which you conform and to which you hold one another hostage. It is one more beam on your idol house by which you keep yourself from coming to me through your weaknesses whereby the love that I AM might reach through you to one another.
Oh, My People would you not cease from this lifeless charade? Would you not put off the yoke of self righteous bondage? Wherefore I plead with you. Leave your world of idea and come to Me through who you are within. Leave off building the empire of another man’s vision—for I have a vision for you alone – the true vision of which your weaknesses are a dim reflection. Come to Me through them, and I will recreate them by the infusion of My own Life and bring them to fulfillment.
Come–let Me show you the kingdom that resides within your own heart. Fear not yourself for My blood has paid all. Let Me reshape the world by what I have conceived in you. Together, let us recreate the universe.
This is My will for you and the key to your complete salvation.
