I saw the above messages posted last weekend on Facebook. I have removed all names and I will not tell anyone who posted these. These are just two examples of what is happening on social media and the Lord has given me a message about it. I did not want to put forth this message from the Lord and it breaks my heart that I have to but I must be obedient and do as He says. I tried to put this off but He keeps repeating it over and over in my head and I have to release it.
PLEASE TAKE THIS MESSAGE VERY SERIOUSLY AND TAKE IT BEFORE JESUS YOURSELF. DO NOT READ THIS THINKING ABOUT ANYONE ELSE BUT EXAMINE YOUR OWN HEART AND ASK THE LORD TO SPEAK TO YOU ON THIS. – Jeff Byerly
“My son write to the people who call themselves by My name.
I am angered by many of My people’s public actions right now! You are not doing the things that are most important to Me because your hearts are not right. I see what is in every man’s heart and most of what I see is not pleasing to Me, even in My own people. The law of love is the fulfillment of My law, it does not take it away. If you truly love Me and your brother (everyone around you) you have fulfilled all of the commandments. You can only do so by being filled with the Holy Spirit and walking in the love that has been shed abroad in your heart. Are you asking Me to fill you with more of Me everyday? The answer for most is no! This is why flesh is reigning in your churches and internet sites.
As you may have noticed there are no parts of the spiritual armor listed by Paul (Ephesians 6:10-18) that protect the back. That is what each of you is supposed to guard for one another, in prayer and supplication. Instead I see many sticking daggers into each others backs. Do you think that I am pleased with this? Do you think that I don’t see what you write to each other on social media websites? Do you think that I don’t see every comment written? Do you think that those that don’t know me, that are looking for Me don’t read these things? You all know the answers to these questions, you know I see it all!
My question to all of you is, why are you doing the things that I hate if you claim to love Me? Sowing discord among the brethren is one of the six things I hate! You say “This one is a heretic!” “That one is a false prophet!” “He believes the wrong rapture doctrine!” “She doesn’t cover her head when she prophecys!” I could go on and on and on…I ask you, is this done out of love? Because if it is not, it profits you and everyone else NOTHING! I tell you, it is out of your pride that you do this because you THINK you know things but you truly know NOTHING yet as you ought to know. Even those of you seeing and hearing the most clearly from Me, see in part and through the glass dimly.
There is a right way to correct a brother but there are very few who do this anymore. This is the generation of NOW. Men are speaking whatever comes to their minds, without pondering the results both physically and spiritually of what they write or say. Has it not been written that you must bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ? Did I not say that every idle word would be judged on Judgment day? These thoughts and words need to be repented of and put under My blood or you will pay the price for them. I paid the price, you need not but you must die to this carnality.
This is wisdom “Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few.”(Ecc 5:2) The way to deal with disagreements are to first go to your brother privately in love. If the matter is not resolved, involve to or three other brothers lovingly. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church treat him as you would a sinner, in My love. Yes, you must love sinners because you are My witnesses here on the earth and you are the carriers of My Spirit. Restoration is always My goal and it should be yours as well. If your disagreement is just a matter of your opinion and not a matter of salvation or foundational biblical beleifs, such as My diety, you would be best to remain quiet or at the very least suggest your belief gently. Remember the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. If you are not conducting yourself in this way, you are acting out of your flesh.
It is written “He who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.” This is truth but I the Lord am the only one who can judge the heart of a man, because I know every thought, intent and angle of every motive, weather it be good or evil. Do not argue about things pertaining to the end times, can you not see that this is wrong? No man has it all figured out because I have not revealed it all to one man. I have not even revealed the complete timeline of events even to the entire body. You only know a fraction of what will happen in the coming days so that you can be prepared for what lies ahead. Your best preparation is to be in right standing with Me. When you argue, you are not in right standing with Me. You must be in communion with Me constantly and repent of all of your sins. Do not just ask for forgiveness of your sins, TRULY REPENT! This means to turn away from them and do the good works that I have prepared for each of you to do.
Lastly, I want to point out to you how I dealt with the Pharisees and the money changers at the temple. Why did I treat them so harshly but had mercy and grace on those that people that were in open sin? I tell you this, those in open sin are judged already and they know it. Those with hidden sin look good on the outside but have wickedness in their hearts even though they think they are doing good in My eyes. They are cups that are clean on the outside but filthy on the inside. They are whitewashed tombs. Their lips say they love Me but they hate their brother and publicly disparage him by name.
My children, if you see a doctrine or belief that goes against My word you must expose it and contend for the faith but you are not to act in the ways of this world but in the Spirit and thus in love. There are many who are in danger of being cast into the great tribulation because of their lack of love toward their brothers. The great tribulation will be their last chance, out of My mercy and punishment, before eternal punishment in the lake of fire.
HEED MY WORDS!
Here are some portions of scripture that support this message, I suggest you read them especially if you feel conviction in your spirit. Repent and overcome these things by the blood of the Lamb! – Jeff Byerly
Romans 13:8 Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,”and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us. 20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen,how can he love God whom he has not seen? 21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Prov 6:16 These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.
1 Cor. 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
2 Cor. 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ
Matthew 12:36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.
Matthew 18:15-17 ESV
“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
1 cor 2:15 He who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
Romans 14:1 ESV
As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.
James 4:11 ESV
Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.
1 Corinthians 6:1 ESV
When one of you has a grievance against another, does he dare go to law before the unrighteous instead of the saints?

Ephesians 4:1-32 ESV
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, …
1 Corinthians 11:19 ESV
For there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized.
James 4:1-3 ESV
What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.
Philippians 4:2 ESV
I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord.

So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith.
Jude 1:3 ESV
Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.
Hebrews 4:1-16 ESV
Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it. For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened. For we who have believed enter that rest, as he has said, “As I swore in my wrath, ‘They shall not enter my rest,’” although his works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he has somewhere spoken of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all his works.” And again in this passage he said, “They shall not enter my rest.” …
Acts 13:2 ESV
While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”
Acts 8:1-40 ESV
And Saul approved of his execution. And there arose on that day a great persecution against the church in Jerusalem, and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. Devout men buried Stephen and made great lamentation over him. But Saul was ravaging the church, and entering house after house, he dragged off men and women and committed them to prison. Now those who were scattered went about preaching the word. Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed to them the Christ. …

And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed. …

These things I command you, so that you will love one another.
