The Power of Love
The power of love working in His people, positions us to receive the blessings of heaven in this life.
The greatest treasures of God are reserved for those who are “IN LOVE” with God.
Those in love with God are those who by the Spirit of God are consumed in the overwhelming love of Father God and respond to God’s love by reflecting it back to Him.
“But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’ But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit,”1 Corinthians 2:9-10.
This is the romance of eternity, to be in a passionate love relationship with God Almighty.
Through this love relationship with God all things and all power are available to us.
Heaven is open to us. Access into the court room of heaven and the storehouse of supernatural heavenly provisions is given to us.
By faith working through love all things are possible and nothing is impossible to those who love Him.
The all-consuming love of God has so ordered our lives into sync with God that our every desire is in perfect alignment and harmony with the will of God.
Therefore, our every prayer is for only that which is the desire and will of God. Thus our lives, our families, our cities, states and nations can be ordered by the will and ways of God.
This is the Kingdom of God or the Kingdom of Heaven on earth as it is in heaven.
Not everyone is ‘in love’ with God
The world longs for the reality of the “in love” experience with God. Natural men without the fullness of Christ in them by the Holy Spirit are missing the access to the provisions of God prepared for those who love Him.
The world suffers as mankind erodes in strife and failure locked in the limiting mindsets of human reason and thinking that is influenced by the powers of darkness.
The evil one comes disguised as an angel of light to deceive the minds of the elitist of fallen mankind, (2 Corinthians 11:14-15).
No one without being in love with God can know and enter the greatest provisions of God.
All war, strife, sickness, hatred, violence, depression, suicide, murder and every evil on earth stems from the direct result of not being in love with God.
All drug abuse, drunkenness, deadly addictions, sexual promiscuity, pornography, obsessions with games, sports, entertainment and more stem from the emptiness in man due to the lack of being in love with God.
The purpose of mankind can never be fulfilled without intimate love connection with God Almighty.
The insanity and madness of lack and emptiness in human beings without an intimate passionate one on one, face to face relationship is the source of all evil and death in this world.
Out of Babylon to New Jerusalem
The Babylonian cultures of this world are driven by the deep need in man to fulfill his designed purpose as true Sons of God.
The fulfillment of the purpose of God for mankind is expressed in the metaphor of the Bride of Christ married to God, in love producing mature Sons of God.
Sons that reign as kings and priests in the Kingdom of God on earth.
Scriptural Babylon without God is the glory of mankind becoming the cage of demons fit only for destruction by fire, (Revelation 18:2).
New Jerusalem is the ruling city of the Kingdom of God, which is the reality of the presence of God and redeemed mankind dwelling together on earth as in heaven, (Revelation 21:2, 9).
The call of God today is for His people to come out of Babylon and into the New Jerusalem city of the living God, (Revelation 18:4).
Any neutral ground in between is rapidly shrinking away. The valley of decision is being prepared, in this season of the history of this world, (Joel 3:2, 14). The nations of Ezekiel 38 are connecting and gathering.
Sheep and Goat nations are dividing one from the other. Nations are being judged and separated as goats on the left and sheep on the right.
Those on the left to perdition and those on the right to the Kingdom of God, (Matthew 25:31-34).
The Roaring Fire of God
The roaring fire of God is now coming very near to earth for destruction of false teachers, false prophets, and false leaders of false religions, (2 Peter, Chapter 2).
These powerful anti-Christ works are fit only for destruction that the world can be saved and restored to the glorious Kingdom of God reality.
It is the powerful love of God that will cleanse and purify the earth. All that remains shall prosper in the establishment of the Kingdom of God ruling and reigning on Planet Earth, (Matthew 13:24-30).
The Great Divide
“Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you,”” 2 Corinthians 6:17.
We must be different to make a difference.
Christ Jesus in us will lead us to do good to all men but especially to those of the household of faith, (Galatians 6:1).
God sends rain on the just and the unjust but the treasures of God are reserved for the children of God.
They are hidden from natural man like treasure in a field that when discovered becomes of more value that all else that a man has, (Matthew 5:45, 13:44, 1 Corinthians 2:14).
We are to love all people but our treasures are only for the children of God. And most importantly, we are to NOT RECEIVE from the ways of those who are not of God.
“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces,” Matthew 7:6.
Jesus walked with sinners and loved them, but He limited what he gave them of Himself, and did not receive from their ways.
We are not to be unequally yoked with those who oppose God.
“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14.
A person will become as their teacher. If children are taught by natural minded unbelievers they will become as their teachers, (Luke 6:40).
Kingdom of God people must be taught by kingdom minded people.
We cannot continue to receive the ungodly perspectives of today’s mass media and send or children for education to ungodly secular or religious schools and expect to see the Kingdom of God in our lives.
Babylonian teachers and leaders will produce Babylonian people.
Kingdom teachers and leaders that are IN LOVE with God will produce kingdom disciples that love God.
Our mentors and teachers in every field of endeavor and training must be those that are in love with God to produce the Kingdom of God on earth.
Individuals, families, cities, tribes and nations will rise or fall in accordance with their relationship or lack thereof with Almighty God.
In this season of the world, the great divide is not racial, political or religious; the great divide of mankind is the sheep who love God and the goats who do not love God.
Jesus in pure holy love has brought a great sword of division,
“Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’
He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.
He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 10:34-39.
Find His life now!
Dear Ones, I cannot overstate the urgency and the importance of finding life IN LOVE with God in Christ Jesus, by the Holy Spirit NOW.
It is a truly good trade to lose our present Babylonian style life to find true Spirit life, for the sake of Christ Jesus, Father God, and His kingdom now in this life.
The tears of great pain and sorrow of those who cling to past values of past life are all wiped away for those who turn quickly to arise in love with God.
This current divided condition of left against right, goats against sheep, will not continue.
Soon the greatest tribulation the world has ever known will bring the old divided world to an end.
The Kingdom of God seed of Christ in His people will spring forth in the glorious Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
“….So he said to me, “THESE ARE THE ONES WHO CAME OUT OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. AND GOD WILL WIPE AWAY EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES,”Revelation 7:14-17.
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Luke 12:32.
