The following are a sample of the messages that God has spoken to my wife, Karen, over the past couple of years. God has verified His words to me through my own research and study of the Bible, and other ways as well. Many have looked at our teachings and wondered where we are getting our ideas. Most of it has come from what God has told us and from my study of the Scriptures. I have placed here some of God’s thoughts regarding His Torah, His Word, and His commandments. So rather than hearing my own study and research, you can read what we were told by God Himself. If you would like to read more about what God has told us, you can go to my wife’s blog at KarensShofar.wordpress.com.
YOU NEED TO BE HOLY
“Just remember I tell you the truth. You cannot, and won’t, be one of My disciples, if you keep carrying on the way that you do. For I am telling you the truth. Because I cannot, and will not lie, because I am God Almighty, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, this day and for all of eternity and forever. I am a Great Big God, and I can and will love you always, but even I have My limits. Because I am God, I need for you to be holy as I am holy, for a vessel that’s not purified and cleansed in water and My blood can not ever come into My Presence or My Father’s Presence.”
WHY DO YOU PROFANE MY NAME?
“My heart breaks to see My creation treat Us the way that you do. You take what we have made Holy, and profane and blaspheme Our name by doing and eating what We have told you in Our Word that which is not kosher and not fit to eat nor consume with your mouth. Why is it that you don’t care, My children? You say you love Me, but you’re very far from Me, says God Almighty, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I ripped My heart in My Holy of Holies place that day, because My Son had just died for you. My heart hurt so much for what I saw My only begotten Son go through.”
I DID NOT BRING THE TEMPLE SYSTEM TO AN END
“How ludicrous you think that I have done away with My sacrifices and offerings. I did what any good Jewish father would’ve done if one of their children would’ve died. My people knew exactly what happened. They weren’t in the dark. Why do you think they wanted to have My tomb guarded? They realized I was their true Messiah and they didn’t want Me to get away. But little did they know that death couldn’t hold Me down. For if they really truly believed who I has said I was, they would’ve known that, but they didn’t want to believe because they loved living in sin and taking from My true followers all that they could, in order to make their lives miserable and as hard as they could.”
I WANT TO BRING MY TORAH BACK TO MY CHURCH
“I do want a close relationship with all My people from all around the world. How is it to be done, if My people who are called by My name don’t follow the call that I God have called and shown them to do? Be strong. I do not wish to bring harm or disharmony among My children, but what I do wish to do is to bring back to My church what they have robbed from Me and took from My heart, says God Almighty.”
“I want for all My children to walk in Torah [God’s Law] and to be led by My Spirit, and to delight in all of My Torah and precepts, says God Almighty. Yes, and I’ll say it again, My child, I, who am King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I change not. I love all of you, My children. Trust Me and your Father to have your best interest at heart. I am not trying to be mean or harsh, but I am a holy God, and I will not, nor cannot, be amongst unholy detestable things.”
“Why does this hurt you so much? Why do you not care about My heart, says God? Why doesn’t it bother you or make you sick to your guts to follow such heathenistic ways that are detestable in My eyes, says God Almighty. I will say this again, because you, My children, are a bunch of proud, prideful, stubborn people, who choose to obey man over God. I do not want My name on anything that is unholy or that comes from an unholy background or custom, says God Almighty. Just like the Seleucid Greeks fought the battle against Judah, and they profaned My very Temple and Holy Place with unkosher pigs. I hate that you don’t care about My heart and would rather please men and your bellies, says God Almighty.”
“If My so-called children would just listen up and observe My Sabbaths and My Feasts/ Festivals, I would just love to lavish My love upon them and show them My mercies that are new every morning to the setting of the sun at night. Oh, how I love My Church, My so-called Church of today.”
I AM THE LIVING TORAH
“Choose life over death, My children. My church is dying because of their disobedience to the Torah, which is Me. I am the very life and breath. I am the Living Torah that My Father has set Me to be. I walk with you every day, says God, if you would just dare to open Me up and draw life from My very pages. Why do you not see this? I kept telling you if you believe what Moses has written down about Me, you will know and understand Me, and know that I am the very One you are looking for.”
I HAVE NOT CHANGED
“Reach for Me, seek Me, and know that I have not changed anything I have written down in My Torah. Believe Me not because I say this, but believe Me because I have the proof in My Torah/words to back up what I have spoken, says God Almighty. Keep My words, keep My sayings, keep everything, jot and tittle. Don’t take away, don’t add, not one yodh (letter) or dot, says your Lord God and Savior. Amen.”
“Trust Me, Obey Me, Follow Me, Keep my Commandments , Keep My Torah , Keep my whole Torah/Scriptures for they are life and breath and food to all that are hungry and starving for more of Me, says the Lord God Almighty, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I said I come quickly and very soon. Are you gonna be ready for My soon arrival or are you gonna be left behind, says God Almighty? I say this again and again, DO NOT take away from My Words nor add to them . If you do, My children, My creation, there will be no place for you in Heaven where I have been preparing for you since the time that I have left you.”
“How many times do I keep repeating Myself to you, My people, My children, who say they are walking in My ways but are acting like the one I kicked out of heaven over 6,000 years ago because he thought he could be greater and replace Me, His Creator and Lord of Lords and King of Kings, says your Almighty God. How dumb he was to think that My creation could one day rule the world. How ridiculous you all are today, living your lives and taking Me for granted, assuming you can do whatever you want and won’t lose your free gift of salvation.”
MY WORD AND I ARE ONE
“Drink of Me, says God, and you will never thirst again or lack for any good thing. Trust Me, says God, and know that all things will work out for good to those who seek Me, My Torah, and has My words, says God Almighty, because My words, My Torah, and I are one and the same. You take away My Torah, My Holy Scriptures, and you have taken Me away. You cannot pick and choose what you want to believe. All of My words are “Yes” and “Amen.” Not one of them is better than the rest. They all, I say, have an importance to them. I say, Do not take anything from the beginning or the middle away. It is all valid and important for you today, My children. The Old Testament is just as valid as the Newer Testament.”
ABOUT THE SABBATH
“I want you to tell My children that this is My Sabbath and that is My day, says God, and that it is My very heart and soul; it is who I am. It is My very heart and soul and breath of who I am wanting you to walk in and study My Torah and to proclaim it amongst My people, says God. I love you all, and I so desire that you love Me also, says God.”
“Yes, My Sabbath is one of My holy days that I have set up from the very beginning, and how dare any one of you to throw it to the curb because you think it isn’t important any longer. How foolish some of you are today and have been for such a long time.”
I AM A HOLY GOD, QUIT TESTING ME
“I love you, My children, with a love that’s so very perfect, but like I said before, I am a holy God and cannot, and will not, live amongst an unholy and wicked people. Don’t keep testing Me, says God Almighty, because I can, and will, remove you from Me, says God. If I can remove My people Israel from amongst the tree which they were birthed into, how much easier will it be for Me and My Father to uproot and cut you off My Church, who has been grafted into it, by and through Me, who had bled, died and arose and ascended back to My Father in Heaven once and for all.”
THE MEANING OF THE TEARING OF THE TEMPLE VEIL
“My Son has accomplished what I had set for Him to do, and it is finished. He has opened the gateway, so that Jews and gentiles can both come to Me because of the rent and split of My robe and tallit (prayer shawl) in My very Holy Tabernacle. That very moment when My Son took His last breath, My heart also took its last breath, and it pained Me so hard that I split My very heart of who I am from the top to the bottom to show you how much that I love you, My people. The veil, My heart, the very source of who I am, who I was with your fathers, which I was a fire by day and a cloud of smoke by night in the wilderness. This is Me, says the LORD God Almighty, I change not and can’t change because I am that I am, says God.”
“I ripped the veil from top to bottom because that was My sign for My people Israel. They knew exactly who My Son was and what an evil and perverse people they had become by crucifying the One and Only Lamb of God who came to bring light and love into a sick and dying world. They tried to kill the One they proclaimed to be seeking after, but when I did come and I didn’t look like they had perceived Me, they called Me cruel and vicious names, and also called Me, “a son of Beelzebub.” They were caught up in so many legalistic doctrines of their father, the devil, that they who thought they were doing right had become blind and could not see.”
“They were so blinded by their doctrines of men, just like you, My Church, is today. Don’t keep continuing in your self-righteousness and unholiness, says God Almighty, because I love you so very much and desire My Church, both Jew and Gentile, to become One as I am to My Father is One. My very heart yearns for you, My children. Don’t stay lost in your sins. Repent and do your first works over again, so that our hearts can relight that once relationship I hungered so very long ago to have with Adam and Eve in My Garden.”
THE COMMANDMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN DONE AWAY
“You say, My Church, that they [My commandments] have been done away with, but I say, ‘No, how can that be because I am still here. You do away with My Torah, My commandments, then I do not exist,’ says God. I love My people, but you are so lost to Me, not lost to where you aren’t Mine, but lost to where I’m about to spit you out in disgust. Remember, My Church/people, I do not like sin or can live where it is, so choose you this day if you are going to serve God or manna.”
“My dying on the cross didn’t do away with My Torah or any of the things you so think that it did. I came to bring you life and life more abundantly. I did this so you could have a place and a home with Me and My Father for all of eternity because we love you so very much and want for you and your families to have a relationship with Us. I made a promise with your father, Abraham, when I walked through the pieces while I put him in a deep sleep, and I kept My end of the bargain, like I keep all My promises to a thousand generations. I took care of the sin issue on the cross. I did not do away with My very own words I spoke at the very beginning of creation which was and is Myself, and I didn’t do away with the words I spoke to Moses up on the mountaintop and had written on the tablets of stone with My very own finger. How stupid such nonsense you people have become.”
THE CHURCH’S BLINDNESS TO GOD’S TORAH
“Believe that I am with you and that I will never leave you alone. I come quickly, says the Lord, and many that say that they are Mine will be turned away because of their misconceptions of Me and My Torah. Keep following Me and keep following My Torah. Keep My words and follow them because they are life and breath to those that do.”
“I have not come to demolish any one of My sayings in the Torah. They are Me. Why would I destroy Myself? That is nonsense. They have Me so confused. They don’t have ears to hear or eyes to see because they are blinded by their own foolishness. If they would only pray to Me and ask Me to give them wisdom to know what is right and true and lasting and to have good judgment and self-control, I would be so happy to give them the understanding so that none should perish but have everlasting life.”
“The problem is that they are too much into themselves and what they can gain, ‘the name it and claim it’ message, that they have become so blinded and cannot see where they have gone astray. In the meantime, they are leading millions away from Me, and My heart aches. I have given each and every one free choice to decide what they want to believe, so this is out of My hands.”
I AM NOT YOUR GENIE IN A BOTTLE
“For I am a jealous God, and I choose to be served by you as you call out to Me for daily help and survival. You ask Me for things on a regular basis like I’m some genie in a bottle at your beckoning call. I don’t mind you asking Me for things as long as your are doing what My Torah, My very word, is telling and showing you what to do.”
“The problem is that most of you are just ‘naming it and claiming it,’ and that angers Me, and I am fed up to the top with all of you, to tell you the truth. Just follow Me, and you will not fall to the wayside or curb, and you will find My gift of everlasting life and the fountain that will never run dry, says the Lord God Almighty.”
ABOUT THOSE WHO ARE TRYING TO DESTROY MY TORAH
“A lot of folks are trying so hard to do away with My Torah and My commandments. They are blinded by Satan, so that they won’t see what I have for them. Because as soon as the blinders come off My people’s eyes, they will come running back to Me, seeking My face like never before.”
“I tell you the truth, My words do not, and will not, be destroyed by people who do not, and will not, covet My Torah, which gave them life everlasting through believing in Jesus My Son.”
“I am sick and tired of the church today and all of these TV evangelists who spread such lies about Me, says God. They take My word and use it to benefit their pockets, and it will benefit them for a time, but there is coming a day that this will be a BIG eye opener for many millions.”
YOU NEED TO STUDY MY TORAH, MY WORD
“But remember, you have to be reading My Manual, the Torah, My Scriptures, and studying it too, says God, because this is the one clause that is necessary for My Holy Spirit to have. He will be your Helper, not your genie in a bottle. You have to do your part and then He will do His part. Come on, don’t be lazy people and want everyone, including God Almighty, to do everything for you.”
CHOOSE ME AND MY WAYS
“The world likes to replace Me with every whim and doctrine, but that doesn’t please Me, says God Almighty. Choose Me, says God Almighty. Choose Me, says God, and don’t abuse Me either, says God. I am not like a child’s story that you get from one of your unholy days that you set up to replace some detestable pagan holiday, and try to attach My name to the front of it, and think I will be okay with it. Not so, My people. I would rather you to be hot or cold, rather than lukewarm because this makes Me sick and want to puke you up and vomit you out of My mouth, says God.”
“My children, if that is what you say you are to Me, shape up and start acting that way. Stop listening to everything that everyone is telling and teaching you and listen to My servants today. They are not lying to you like you have been told. They are My children who I have raised up for such a time as this to proclaim My truths that the church and religious leaders have been lying to you, for such a very long time. Oh, there are others, but you think they are false teachers because they go against the flow of your own doctrines taught to you from your religious leaders and your religious zealots of times past. The Roman Catholic church is a very big part of it, and they don’t even deny it. You say, it is fine; after all, we are building God’s Church, but that is just another lie from the enemy. You just keep teaching and preaching fallacies. You put My name amongst the heathen gods and bring the Easter bunny and Santa Clause, and think it is so cute to take pictures of them with your children as they bounce them upon their knee and tell lies to them while you watch and smile.”
“MY PEOPLE ARE PROFANING MY NAME”
This message was given to my wife from the Lord on Saturday, October 31, 2015, Halloween night. In order to understand the Lord’s feeling about the holidays celebrated by the Church, I felt you should read the entire message that He gave to her. The information on the holidays He likewise confirmed to me through various means, including my own study and research.
This message begins with the impressions and thoughts that the Lord was giving to her.
“God expects for us, and desires for us, to humble ourselves and to cleanse ourselves from all unrighteousness and to be holy and anointed, set apart from the likenesses of the world.”
Then the message shifts. It was after this that the Lord began to speak to her through the Holy Spirit.
“I do not want My people to be dabbling in the things which I have said were unclean and unholy. How can I, a Holy God, be among the things that are unholy? My people, you are profaning My name and causing Me to want to take you and remove you from My Holy Presence. I cannot, and will not, I say keep dwelling among a people who do NOT covet the same holy things that I covet.
“Yes, I have in My commandments which I gave to Moses on Mt. Sinai, which says to not covet what is not yours, says God Almighty. These wicked holidays that you are claiming to be yours are detestable in My eyes, says God Almighty. How can you not see this in the Word of God that I have given you as a manual to understand the very heart of Me, says God. I DO NOT WISH for anyone of My children to have anything to do with the things of this world. I will go farther than this, I can’t continue in a relationship with you because you are grieving the very Holy Spirit that has come to be your Helper and to be your Guide.
“Don’t profane My name and say you are trying to take something bad and turn it into something good for the sake of the church. That is not true! says God. You are doing it because you don’t care about hurting Me, says God. If you cared about Me, you would see that I detest all the things that you’re trying to push Me into. I do NOT accept what you have done, and I don’t want anything any more to be involved or put My name to that which is unholy and unacceptable to what My word teaches.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the Aleph and the Tav, and last but not least, the Bright and the Morning Star, says God Almighty. Why can’t you get this? Why is this so difficult for you? My word is so clear a baby can get it and understand it. Why don’t you care? Why don’t you want to know Me? Why am I just an escape for you? Don’t you love Me? Why don’t you love Me? I am your Father, the Bridegroom, I have done only good things for you, My dearly beloved children. I want to call you Mine, but you are growing so cold, and I can hardly sense your presence anymore. I long for you. Yes, I am God, but you are the ones who need Me, and how is that going to happen if you are so lost and hard of hearing to where our relationship falls apart?
“You have not sought Me in a very long time. You are becoming, or should I say are, so cold. If you were lukewarm, it would be better because then I would spur you out of My mouth and be done with you, says God Almighty. My Spirit is a very good thing. I, your God, only gives good gifts to His children who seek for Me. I love My children who do not hide from Me, but who delight in Me and do all that I tell them to do.
“My words are life to those who find Me and seek Me with their whole hearts, says God. But such words can also be death, My people, if you do not heed My word / Torah / commandments. I desire for you to search your hearts, minds, and souls and set forth on a new path, says God, and show Me your fruit that you say you have gotten by following Me. You are always saying that you trust Me, but now I am throwing it back in your face. You show Me and prove yourselves to Me, says God! Because I am so fed up with a wishy-washy people who are just trying to fit in with this world of pukiness and unrighteousness, says God Almighty, your soon coming King.
“Get your bags and pack, My true believers of My Torah, because I love you, says God. My true believers know what I mean by ‘get your bags packed’. Yes, do I have to tell you too? I’m talking about getting your hearts and minds set on the very life that I spoke to you from the beginning of time in the book of Genesis. I’ve spoken the world into existence with words, the very Word that I AM. It was Me from the very beginning until the very end. I change not. I remain the same today as I did then.
“Why is this so hard for you, My Church, to see this? I have sent a life boat and a Savior to your rescue. Reach out, grab ahold of Me. Trust Me, Obey Me, Teach what I have given to you, My holy commandments. I have not changed My mind, My children. You have decided for yourselves to change My mind for Me. I say stop profaning Me, stop trying to change Me. I have chosen you, not you Me. You need all of Me, says God Almighty. I need for you to be holy, set apart, because you say you are My Bride, and the only way possible for that to be is if you start searching your hearts today and repent from all of your wickedness towards Me, My children.
“Time is short, and I am not pleased with how our relationship is doing. You, My people, so-called children, have already turned your backs on Me and profaned My holy name. You have prostituted yourselves to many other gods and still you say you are Mine. Don’t you get what this does to a relationship when a partner cheats on the other? It brings such bitterness and resentment, which ends in hate and then to death, which is DIVORCE. The word I hate, says God. I have only allowed it because of the hardness of your hearts. I permitted it, but not because it was what I wanted for you. Amen.”
