If you treat someone with less affection after they have lied to you, you have conditional love!
If someone has cheated you and your warmth toward them changes, you have conditional love!
If someone stabs you in the back, while pretending to be your friend, and you refuse to be their friend, you have conditions on your love!
My unconditional love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things! Pastors; if someone leaves your church for any reason, and you do not hug them as tightly as everyone else, you do not have My love, because it believes, hopes and endures all things. I have tested and tested My church in the west, in this area of unconditional love, and each time they are weighed in the balances, they are found extremely wanting.
Church leaders, if you do not encourage the sheep to visit other churches, for fear they will leave you, you only possess conditional love because My love seeks not her own! If you make anyone feel uncomfortable, because they are not moving fast enough for you, you do not have My love, because My love suffers long! If you enjoy embarrassing people, you have conditional love, because My love is kind. If you in any way want to get even with anyone for anything, your love, is not My love, because My love is not easily provoked, and thinks no evil!
Conditional love is always center on you, and how much you suffer. My love never brags on itself and is not puffed up. When you desire to make someone pay for what you suffered, your conditional love is exposed, because My love endures all things! When someone is caught lying, My unconditional love will cause you weep for their condition, like I do! Oh yes you may speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but if your love is conditional, you are just making noise like sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
You may be prophetic and even understand all mysteries, and have the gift of knowledge; and have super faith, so that you can remove mountains, but if you operate in conditional love, in My eyes your nothing. Oh it may look like My love, if you bestow all your goods to feed the poor, and give your body to be burned, but if it’s conditional, it profits you nothing.
My love does not envy anyone, for any reason; It does not behave itself unseemly, with pouting or temper tantrums. It never laughs at any sin, but always rejoices in the truth.
My unconditional love never fails: yes, there will be prophecies, and they will fail; there will be tongues, and they shall cease; and yes there will be knowledge, and it will vanish away.  But remember this; both now and forever there will be faith, hope, and My unconditional love, these three; but the greatest of these is My love! On earth you may be impressing everyone with your gifts, but if you don’t have it, in heaven you are just making a lot of noise!” 1 Corinthians 13:1-13.
Now, I ask you, do you have it, or only think you have it?
