When LOVE looks like HATE, it always has the word TOUGH in front of it.
The problem is, in My Kingdom most of the time, TOUGH is the word in front of love. Every time My Father makes a request, makes a demand, sets up a requirement, or mentions the narrow gate, the word tough pops up in front of love.
The gate is narrow (contracted by the pressure of the word TOUGH) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it. The Word that is always connected to tough is a two letter word that is hated by all flesh, that word is “NO” (Matthew 7:14 AMP).
Also My Father’s name is LOVE therefore His first name is Tough but only to those on the outside of the gate, that’s why people have such a hard time finding it, (1 John 4:16).
The word tough comes up in front of Creator God, tough creator God. So to the flesh all kingdom love has the word tough in front of it. When you look closely you will recognize that the word tough is never in front of a Kingdom Citizen’s name or love.
Because he is on the Kingdom side of the gate and it’s never tough when you do things Father’s way in the Kingdom. Only in front of a carnal Christian, on the outside because he has yet to crucify his flesh.
The fact that he has not entered through the gate, tells us that the tough part is the killing of his flesh with a simple two letter word, (NO) you can’t bring that through the gate.
KINGDOM BOTTOM LINE:
“So kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members those animal impulses and all that is earthly in you that is employed in sin: sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry (the deifying of self and other created things instead of God).
It is on account of these very sins that the holy anger of My Father is ever coming upon the sons of disobedience (those who are obstinately opposed to His divine will), where you all once walked, when you were living in and addicted to such practices.
But now you can pass through the narrow gate, because you have put away and repented and completely surrendered to TOUGH LOVE, ridding yourselves completely of all these things: anger, rage, bad feeling toward others, curses and slander, and foulmouthed abuse and shameful utterances from your lips and I can welcome you into My kingdom!” (Colossians 3:5-8 AMP).
