LOVE YOUR ENEMIES

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” – Matthew 5:43-48

One of the hardest things to do in life is to love our enemies. Jesus did so despite of how people treated Him, Jesus even prayed for those that wanted Him crucified. With His last breath before He died He asked God to forgive them for they know not what they do.

Jesus wants us to pray for our enemies and love them. Especially those who persecute us and say all manner of evil against us. Why? Because, it proves that we are children of our Heavenly Father, and also because He does the same by showing us love in spite of our sins and faults. Furthermore, if you are kind to those people who are kind to you then you are no different from the pagans and heathens. God’s word tells us in Romans 12:1-2, to be transformed and not conformed to this world and it’s events.

God sets a standard of perfection because He is looking for people without spot or blemish. We should aim to be perfect because He is perfect, holy and just. So like Jesus, He requires the Christian to be like Jesus. God wants us to love at all times.

To be able to love your neighbors as God asks us to and to try to live up to  the standard God sets by the help of His Spirit receive the salvation of the Lord, Jesus. Go to the Salvation Page at the top of this blog.

All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God for using me to deliver this message. I pray that He will give all who read this message the spiritual gifts necessary to comprehend and act upon His word. I exercise my power and authority in the name of Jesus to bind every tactic of the enemy that will try to stop, hinder, or prevent this word from reaching its intended people. I loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.

LOVE OR INFATUATION

Is this Love, is this love, love that I am feeling, Bob Marley asked in one of his songs; Maybe it’s lust or infatuation? Who knows these days. When I was growing up, we use to imagine what a person looks like under all those clothes, and guess the color underwear they have on, now it’s a style, fashion or the in-thing. Nothing left for the imagination; No wonder no one can differentiate between Love that’s genuine or infatuation; Is it a fling, a sex thing or love. I sure wish a lot of people would find that out, before they dive into a relationship, or marriage. Do you love the person or are you infatuated with them, is it for sex, money, security, or love.

When I look at the story of Adam and Eve, I realized, they had no choice in who their mate, wife, husband or partner was, they had to depend on God, well Adam had to. He did not have choices, fat, skinny, black, white, indian, or chinese, tall, short, long hair, short hair, rich, poor, none of those things was attached to love; all Adam needed was a help mate a companion, some one to relate to instead of himself, and the animals. So why did the purpose of love, marriage, friendship, companionship, change so drastically.

Allow me to tell you, we have taken God out of the equation, and replaced Him with our own personal agendas, greed, lust, and pride. It’s no longer we or us, it’s me and mine. That’s the reason we have so many divorces, people have allowed greed, and selfishness to run, and ruin their lives. We have allowed the devil to let sin control us, we have allowed sin to divide us, separate us, from each other, and God.

Lets not forget that God sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to bridge the gap between man and God, and each other, how do I know that? I’m glad you asked. God sent His son into the world not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved, check it out for yourself  (John 3:16-17, Romans 5:21, John 6:40,Romans 6:23), and many more scriptures to verify this. Friends for us to be on the right path to anything, we must be right with God, our Heavenly Father. Nothing will ever be right in our lives, until we make things right with God, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6, Isaiah 5:13) God does not wish for anyone to perish but that all should come to repentance( 2 Peter 3:9, 1 John 5:9-15). Jesus is the only way, truth, and the life, no one gets to God without going through Him (John 14:6,John 8:32,Romans 10:9). Listen if you don’t know Jesus, and the God who sent Him to save your life, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make in your entire life. Now if you know God and want to clean your life up and start fresh, you must also repent, which is confessing read Romans 10:9-13, then read Romans 12, and do as it says.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to delivery His message about His son Jesus Christ, and His will for us, I sincerely hope it blessed you as it did me,and it will move you to be obedient to Him, may He bless and keep you like only He alone can in Jesus name, amen.

AGAPE LOVE

What am I living for, if not for God. If loving God  is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. People throw around this word(love) daily, as if they mean what the word dictates. Some people get married under the umbrella of love, for better or worse, richer or poorer, sickness or health, but as soon as worse, or poorer, or sickness comes they are the first to tell you it’s not going to work, or they didn’t sign up for this, the best is, when they say, I don’t love you anymore, or they fall out of love, or grow out of love, as if it’s a piece of clothes that doesn’t fit, or used furniture. But stop for a second, and think,who loves you unconditionally? and who should the love you are giving away so freely go to?

Let me explain something, that most people don’t get or understand, the origin of love is God, and it starts out with giving. ‘For God so loved the world, He gave, His only begotten son, Jesus the Christ, that whosoever believeth on Him will not perish, but have eternal life'(John 3:16), now that’s the epiphany, and essence of love ladies and gentlemen.

Gods whole character is love, and His love starts with giving of a gift. Can you imagine, if God decides to divorce us, or falls out of love with us. Gods love letter to the world (Corinthians 13), demonstrates to us what love is, not what it ought to be, and if you look at verse thirteen it tells us, ‘and now abides faith, hope, love….but the greatest of the three is love’. Friends if God, is not the focal part of the marriage, then you have problems, divorces, adultery, and the works. ‘He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love'(1 John 4:8). Most people fail to realize this scripture, ‘thou shalt love the lord thy God, with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all your mind…then thy neighbor as thyself'(Matthew 22:37-40) this places us in the third spot, or position.

Listen folks, grace be with all them that love the Lord(Ephesians 6:24),we love Him, because He first love us( 1 John 4:19), God has loved us with an everlasting love(Jeremiah 31:3), greater love hath no man, than Jesus who laid down His life for us(John 15:13), love covereth all sins(Proverbs 10:12,1 Peter 4:8)

If you don’t know God, His gift of His only begotten son Jesus the Christ, then go to the top of this blog, click onto the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do, in your entire life.

I give God, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release His message, to the saved, and unsaved, I pray they will be obedient to His will, and ways in Jesus Name, amen.

THE DAY OF LOVE

I wonder if everyone on this day, all over the world, would put down the guns, knives, all weapons, all hatred, all malice, bitterness, anger, etc, and just give love or show love today? Is that too much to ask? Or is it just impossible? LETS TRY IT. SPREAD THE LOVE.

If we can do that today, then we can do it for another 320 days. Jesus was the only one who demonstrated true love, that originated from God (our Father).

Jesus’ love covers not just a multitude of sins but all of our sins. That’s why He commanded us to love everyone as we would ourselves. Lets show God how much we love Him by obeying His Son (Jesus) commands and His.

Read 1 CORINTHIANS 13;  JOHN 3:16; JOHN 15:9 – 7; 1 PETER 4:8
