The Missing Cross to Purity

In the Faith

For Those In the Faith, Here is What is New on the Site

The messages from the Word of the Lord within on this site are provided to help you gauge the truth of the words you hear spoken to you, to correct the many errors of the deficit sects' doctrines, to encourage you, to caution you, to help you understand the true promises of the Bible, the true restrictions, the true hope, true belief, true faith, and true way to attain the promises. However, the messages published on this site are dead words, without life; whereas words that you hear Him speak to you are words with life and resulting power. Regarding the similar dead words, (without life), that you read in the Bible, the Lord has spoken this advice: "When you have heard the dead words in the Bible and recall them, heed what is said; always obedient to His commands." Does that mean you should disregard any commands from Him that you read?—no, just like the many commands you read in the Bible, you should try to follow them; but as long as you don't deliberately violate a command, should you slip and fail, you should only regret your lack of ability and not feel condemned. The commands you have heard Him speak to you come with the power to obey, providing you do your best to comply.

The words you hear may not be exact duplicates of the words in the Bible or of these messages, but every message you hear from Him will be compatible with the true meaning of the words of the Bible, as well as compatible with the messages on this site. Every message you hear is like receiving a piece to a puzzle, each word fitting together, filling the gaps in your understanding, until you finally see and feel the brilliant truth and wondrous beauty of the scriptures' promises, salvation, and righteousness — the unfathomable depth of God's love to crown his creation in restoring man to sanctity and holiness in union with Himself through Christ.

From the Word of the Lord within:

  • Do not judge.

  • Do not be misled; you must enter the kingdom while on earth.

    Previous messages from the Word of the Lord within that relate to this one are:


  • Little children, do not worry.

    Little children is a term Jesus used to address his disciples before they were completed; and it is a term used by John in his letters, which is a "kindly address from teachers to their disciples."

  • My voice is like thunder over waters.

    There is a voice of the Lord like thunder over the waters described in many Old Testament passages. This is radically different than the small still voice we hear from within our hearts or from the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit and the Word of the Lord within speak to us with words from Jesus, so we are hearing from the Son of god. But until we can truly hear the Voice of the Lord, we will not know for sure it is the Lord speaking to us. From the Word of the Lord within: "you will always have doubts until you hear His voice." You will hear His voice for the first time at final judgment, and you will then know His voice; when you hear His voice like thunder over waters, you have passed over from death to life. Until then, we have to be on our guard to not be deceived by the enemy, pretending to be the Lord speaking to us. Based on the advice of Edward Burrough, (click to read), a giant in the early Quakers, until we can distinguish between the voice of the Lord and the voice of the enemy, we should do nothing  for the Lord but follow his commands to repent.

    We first have to listen to the Holy Spirit and the word of the Lord within to hear and obey His many teachings and commands. Then with long persistence and patience in doing obedient works of repentance, we experience the baptism of fire and death, to then hear the Voice of the Lord like thunder over the waters as we pass from death to life.

  • There will be more upheaval in the land.


  • The use of your phone is proportional to your spiritual poverty.

    Your social life includes phone calls and text messages.


  • Forgo the world.

    We have to come into contact with the world and the people of the world: our jobs, necessary shopping, compliance with government requirements, schools for our children, etc.; but we should give up all socializing with others, and we should ignore, nor even try to stay aware of, the events of the world, the entertainments of the world, the pleasures of the world, the pastimes of the world, the sports of the world, the celebrities of the world, the politics of the world, the disasters of the world, the problems of the world, etc. I have been told that He will tell me anything happening in the world that I need to know.

    So we should stay out of the world which his previous messages support:


  • Practice random acts of kindness.

    Acts of kindness can be to our spouses, children, fellow workers in our occupation, neighbors, strangers — anyone in need of a little assistance. Notice the word random in the above message. Random is the opposite of systematic, scheduled, continuous, periodic, etc. Why? So that you will not become so occupied with your efforts that you lose the necessary focus of seeking God with all you heart; and to seek is to to sit, wait, watch, listen, and obey.

    A previous message I received very early on in my journey was: "You can spend your time trying to correct evil, or you can spend your time seeking me."

    As Jesus told Martha, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things. There is only one thing needed and Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her."

    Acts of kindness include giving to the poor; so with our excess we respond in secret with kindness to those in need that come in front of our face, and/or we can financially support charities; but we don't take up a cause that absorbs our time. Until you have seen Jesus appear in your heart to guide you and bring your salvation, ignore any messages you hear that order or encourage you to spend significant time away from waiting on Him.

    We satisfy those randomly encountered needs only if we have excess funds to satisfy them; and if possible, we should restrain our own expenditures, so that we have excess funds available — in other words, we should always maintain savings so that we can respond to those needs that we encounter randomly. Aside from being able to respond to randomly encountered needs of kindness, financial common sense is to also maintain savings to respond to periods of unemployment and unanticipated expenses necessary for our own lives; so we don't give away any of that necessary cushion of savings. Further, if we are a business owner, we also maintain significant savings so that our business can survive and/or adjust if there is a downturn in demand or some crisis that reduces our revenue; neither do we give away any of that necessary cushion of savings.


  • My name is not important.

    Some sects claim that we should not use the name, Jesus, but instead use his Hebrew name, Yeshua. Others insist on using Yahweh or Yeshoshua.

    Yeshua is the Hebrew name for Jesus. It means "Yahweh [the Lord] is Salvation." The translation of Yeshua from Hebrew to Greek is Iēsous and that translates to Jesus in English.

    Before the above message was received, I always had confidence in the name, Jesus, because that was the name that tens of thousands kingdom-dwelling early Quakers used exclusively. Whatever name we call Him, He fully knows if we are referring to Him.


  • Expose yourself to hear His commands.

    Previous messages from the Word of the Lord within that relate to this one are:


  • Salvation occurs when you are one with Christ and God.

    Previous messages from the Word of the Lord within that relate to this one are:


  • Be not afraid.

    Do not fear the baptism of fire and death that occurs on the Day of the Lord, which is explained in detail in The Kingdom, the Return of Christ, and Salvation's Completion, the last part of the web page How to Benefit from the Changing Power of God by Waiting on the Lord.

    • The following has been added to the list of Deceptions in How to Benefit from the Changing Power of God by Waiting on the Lord.

      If you are hoping to overcome your sexual desires, do not cease sexual relations for a time with your spouse unless there is mutual consent between the two of you; otherwise you will risk major alienation of your spouse, (see 1 Cor 7:5-7 for more guidelines). Totally contrary to scripture, the devil, pretending to be the Lord, would love to successfully order you to cease sexual relations in conflict with your spouse's desires in order to foster a hostile relationship in your marriage, perhaps even its breakup, causing you bitter distress, loss of confidence, and loss of any peace — and significant pain to your spouse.


    • Regarding debt, the following has been added to How to Benefit from the Changing Power of God by Waiting on the Lord and Coming Out of the World:

      When I ran my former business, many of our purchases were on Net 30 terms, particularly those with a standing monthly repeat requirements; most of those purchases were made with vendors who preferred to do business on a Net 30 basis. However, I always had the cash on hand to pay those bills as they were incurred.

      Now I routinely use a credit card to make most of my purchases, however I have an automatic payment of the balance due every month. So again, I use the debt as a convenience; but the debt is always covered with cash on-hand and paid in full automatically. I could use a debit card instead, but there are two disadvantages to that: 1) I get at least 1 % rebate on credit card purchases, but a debit card has no rebates; 2) the bank easily cancels all fraudulent purchases on a credit card, but a debit card withdraws money from your bank account immediately, and it is difficult to get it restored.

      The Lord has never objected to my uses above of debt. The net: if you use debt as a convenience, always able to pay it back if suddenly required, I don't see a problem. Otherwise, debt should be avoided unless it is some emergency that requires going into debt.
