“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….. We love Him because He first loved us,” 1 John 4:16, 19, NKJV.
My child, I AM LOVE! This may seem to be a simple statement, but if you can receive the depth of the truth revealed in it you would then ascend to higher spiritual ground. If you come to this statement from the earthly or natural perspective of love, you will miss the path of truth and wander onto the path of confusion.
Throughout the ages, the uninformed and the lost have struggled with the idea that a God, Who is Love, would allow such evil to run rampant in the earth. But the premise of their reasoning and argumentative position is based on faulty man-centered data.
I truly gave Adam dominion — absolute control — over the earth and the atmosphere surrounding it. When Adam fell, he and his descendants became pawns of the evil one. This opened the gates of this world up to the forces of wickedness, wherein death, ruin, sickness, and evil entered in.
Since I gave dominion to man, My plan of redemption had to be worked through a sinless vessel, My only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. The pure demonstration of Love is seen in the life of the Son and His death on the Cross. He gave Himself up so He could bring many sons to glory.
The natural world cannot comprehend the true nature of Love apart from the Cross. It wants to get caught up in the sentimental feelings of human love that can grow cold and fade over time. But I AM Love; I AM a burning fire that cannot be quenched by time or disappointment. I AM everlasting Love. I AM ever faithful Love. I AM unconditional Love that is offered to every man, woman, and child through the Blood of the Cross.
Those who truly, with sincere hearts, received the sacrifice of the Son and call Him LORD, have this Love residing in them. This Love will never forsake them or leave them. It will contend with their spirits, souls, and bodies to bring them out of the bondage of darkness into the marvelous light of life in the Kingdom of the Son.
My nature is pure Love. It is the foundation of all of My dealings with the sons of men. There is no evil in Me; no darkness or shadow exists in Me.
However, I AM HOLY, too. Sin, darkness, and wickedness cannot stand before Me. I deal with individuals, families, states, and nations as a loving and holy God. My love and holiness will never compromise or try to find common ground with the dark one and his agents.
I AM the True and Living God. I AM bringing My children out of the bondage of darkness. The power of Love shall prevail as the victory has already been secured through the Blood of the Lamb and His resurrection.
Take comfort, My child. I AM working all things for your benefit. Yes, even the tests and trials will result in great fruit and blessings for you and yours. I love you with an unchangeable and invincible Love. Trust Me to see you through the storms. I know the way of safety — so follow Me. All is well, My child. Shalom.
