DO Everything in LOVE

Love
Do Everything in Love

There is only one thing required of believers from the Lord and that is LOVE.  This One Thing that seems so simple and yet can be so elusive.

This Love dwells within us like a hidden treasure which is written by Holy Spirit on the tablets of our hearts when we accept Christ as our Lord. This Love when exercised becomes a light for others to feel the warmth in their souls by this physical demonstration of Christ into the hearts of man.

It is evidence of awakened spirits of a Love that has passed from spiritual death to eternal life.  This is not a natural love but a supernatural Love. As we learn to flow and dance in this river of God’s divine love this warm honey like substance permeates the very atmospheres around us.

Like a Butterfly this Love is elusive to our moods and selfish desires and our intellect chase it away quickly anytime we insist on our own way.  Like a Dove it remains around us only when we are walking in His Spirit, seeking his love peace and harmony. Driven away when harsh words and bitterness overtake our souls.  The Dove fly’s back to the shadow of His wings under a place of rest in the Father’s bosom.

Is Holy Spirit still within you? Yes, but the communication lines are broken until our hearts have been made ready for Her to once again to nest into a holy welcoming abode in our heart.

For the followers of Jesus Christ have been gifted a New Covenant one paid in blood by the Son of God. Gone are the old testament laws because Christ fulfilled those requirements for us. Why can’t we see this? Why do we insist on discrediting our Lord at the Cross of Calvary His sacrifice by insisting we have to obey old testament laws? The Only law that is required of us in Christ is LOVE… the Law of Love;

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’  and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” There is no commandment greater than these.

If we love God with ALL our Heart, Soul like this then we won’t want to break His old testament laws. We won’t want to break His Heart. If we Love our brother as ourselves, we won’t want to hurt them in any way.

Why then?, oh why? … for over 2000 years have many Christians refused to follow the Law of Love? Could it be that we don’t want to Love God that much? For most of us, I don’t think so. We are usually too busy jumping through hoops trying to please and love God.

Well, then that leaves ‘loving our neighbor as ourselves’ as the obstacle now doesn’t it? Its time for honesty here. God is Listening…. Do we really want to Love our neighbors as ourselves? Think about it.

We are no different then our ancestors, We have not evolved into ‘love machines’ in this 21st century with all of our technological advancements. This massive knowledge base has not changed our hearts. News stories today testify that we are just as selfish, prideful and jealous. Catering to our own, and looking down on those we disagree with or feel do us no earthly good.

Yet He tells us: “To love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” and “Love is the fulfillment of the law because it does no harm to a neighbor.”

Without the love of Christ in our hearts there is No way we can Love like God is asking us to. So now what? How is it possible to love like this?
Your spirit must be born again. It’s when God’s Love Seed within us sparks with a compassion for others that the flame of Love is ignited.

The love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost so He is in there! Our hearts that is. Now, if we would just learn to listen to our hearts and learn to listen to our Spirit because God’s Love law is there witnessing with our spirit that we are the children of God. Be renewed in your mind on the subject of LOVE. We just need to practice it. Love does no ill to anybody. To be soaked in God’s word and by so doing be soaked in God’s love.  Then ask the question; How is this going to effect the other person?

I urge you, to reaffirm your love for Christ a love that compels us. He died for all, and all died in Him. In the Holy Spirit and in Sincere Love – purity, understanding, patience and kindness. Love never fails.

HOPE is a Journey of the Heart

Faith Hope Love Heart

A Pathway where each stepping stone is His Grace to a destination that we cannot fully see, but we walk in anyway because we Trust He Loves us and has Mercy on us.

Look into the invisible, into your Heart and see what Holy Spirit is speaking to you about Hope. God promises this to us about Hope: “For I know the plans I have for you. To Prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you Hope and a Future. Then you will call upon Me and come pray to Me and I will listen to you.”

In Jesus the Anointed One we are born again into a ‘Living Hope’ through His Resurrection. We are literally inserted into His inheritance that endures forever and is kept in Heaven for us. In this Hope we can trust in His unfailing Love to deliver us, know that He is our help and our shield and we can rest in Him, no matter what.

So God has given us hope while we live in this earthly realm where things are weak and not perfect. He’s allowed it to be that way because we are not in Heaven yet, but He has made a way for us to bring the essence of Father in Heaven to earth. But, if we think like the world about the word Hope we will always be struggling to have Hope.

Hope in word form has distinct meanings to different people. Understanding various definitions brings a clarity in forming our own ideas about Hope. And honestly evaluating the ‘stuff’ in our lives helps us to determine our ability to Hope. Because Hope isn’t always an easy thing for us mortal beings.

Hope reinterprets the circumstances. This gives us a new perspective an ability to help us to be filled with the revelation of an unquenchable, unbeatable Hope.

The following highlighted words are some definitions I found for you;

A Desire (wish, aspiration) for something we want to happen or be granted to us. Often used as a worldly ‘wishing’ or something ‘we expect’ with no real assurance of getting the desire.

An Expectation or Optimism for ‘that’ something good to happen in the future from the unseen. Positive thought leaders tout optimism heavily. Christian Faith leaders teach this based not on a worldly hope but by ‘the Spirit of Hope’ based on the Greek definition of Hope which means, to be intensely expectant. A joyful anticipation of good in the middle of any circumstance.

A feeling of Trust. I was surprised that this is considered an ancient definition today because Trust is needed to empower our Faith, which in turn enables our Hope. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen and sometimes it takes a mind-shift or a change of Heart for us to be able to Trust.

A person that helps save someone, (Jesus the Christ). I think this one is what the word Hope in the Bible is most often referring to. Rest your Hope on the Grace you received at the supernatural discloser of Jesus Christ as your Savior, (He is your ‘better’ Hope). It is the Anointing, (Him) that destroy’s the yoke and it’s knowing that which causes Hope to arise up in you.

Start to see the riches of the glory of His inheritance in you. This Hope does not disappoint, because the Love of God is poured out in your heart by the Holy Spirit. When the eyes of your understanding are enlightened, you may know what the Hope of His calling is in the Knowledge of Him. That He will give you the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the Knowledge of Him. So doesn’t this mean then that; The Knowledge of Him – is – the Hope of Our Calling?

Everyone who has this Hope purifies themselves and obtains the Hope set before them. Essentially I believe at this point we are partnering with Him. We can be fully confident of this Hope; for the end to be accomplished, the problem solved, our destination made clear or what ever the Lord and you are agreeing upon in Faith starts to become reality as we say yes to Hope in our Hearts.

Begin to see your life through His eyes. Pray the range of your vision is enlightened and enlarged to perceive the purposes of God both in your daily life and into your future. To know the depths of His great Love. His unfailing Love, that He will never shame you and you should find rest knowing your Hope comes from Him.

Try to take your mind off the present situation to get hope that things will improve. I am going to write more about this in the future but if you are struggling then listen to some anointed music and let your heart rejoice. Say yes in your heart to Him and to Hope, it will come easier as you let Him in.

The Lord delights in those who fear / honor Him, who put their Hope in His unfailing Love. The longing of this Hope fulfilled is the tree of Life and those who Hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary and walk and not faint.

Hoping in the Lord is choosing that His promise of strength will help us to rise above life’s distractions and difficulties. It helps us to be ready when He speaks to us. We can have boundless hope, because it will grow stronger by the power of the Holy Spirit’s power and not our efforts.

Love Hopes all things! Christ in you who brings Hope of all the great things to come. God’s secret plan is in you! Christ in You the Hope of Glory living in Your Heart. This truth gives Hope of a life that lasts forever. A safe anchor for our soul and one that will never move. This Hope goes into the Holiest place of all behind the veil of Heaven. Trust God that He will do what He promised.

This desire of Love, when you realize how much He Loves you then you can have confident expectation that this Love / Hope of God lives in you. Never ending… FAITH, HOPE & LOVE … Oh so Beautiful, Thank You my Wonderful.

“Never lose Hope, my Heart – Miracles dwell in the invisible”

FAITH is in the Heart

The world we live in says that you have to ‘see it’, to believe it.  But the bible says, if you believe it’, you’ll see it.  So what did Jesus say about believing? – “Because you have seen Me you have believed.  Blessed are those who have Not seen and Yet have Believed.”

God’s word challenges us to ‘not’ look at the visible, but the invisible.  By Faith, the promise came to Abraham.  He believed God and became the spiritual Father of Faith.  Without Faith it is impossible to please God for whoever comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.  So Faith became the channel that makes God’s possibilities, possible and available to us.

Faith, is the assurance of what we hope for and confidence about the things we do not see. Living by Faith and not by sight is fixing our eyes/hearts on what is unseen (in the heavenly/spiritual realm) and not on what is seen (in the earthly).  Faith takes us from the Invisible to the Visible.  Faith translates us from one world into another.

We might not know God’s presence if we looked at the things that are seen.  Faith will lift you above the realm of the natural world.  Faith will carry you into the realm of Gods possibilities, the realm of Heaven.  Jesus taught us to pray to our Holy Father in Heaven that His Kingdom come and His will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.  Christians are to bring heaven to people by praying and inviting God’s power here on the earth into our daily lives. Paul’s message was with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that Faith would not be in men’s wisdom – but in the power of God.

Faith is in the Spirit, residing in the Heart (with the Heart man believes into salvation) . Your Faith has a destination that will take you somewhere and our Lord Jesus is the author and finisher of our Faith.  Saving Faith is “believing in your heart that Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God and accepting Him as your Savior.”  The Good news of Christ IS the Power of GOD giving salvation to everyone who Believes.  Saving Faith is Gifted from GOD, to us all a measure is given upon salvation.  By Grace you where saved through Faith, (not by your works, or yourself so anyone can brag).

It is my desire to show the Spiritual nature of Faith weaving in scriptures that are relevant to each other. I believe they show us clearly the Love that the Father has for us and His longing to dwell with us through His gifts of Love in His Son Christ Jesus and Holy Spirit

Faith to me is a feeling,  “A Knowing deep inside my being that GOD is who He says He is, GOD!  And that He is Good – Father, Son & Holy Spirit.

A Love, an Intoxication, a Feeling of never having enough of Him and wanting to learn more about Him. Desiring to be in His Presence always, close to His sacred Heart … wanting Him to show me how.

LOVE is born – Spirit to Spirit

Jesus said,  “No one can see the Kingdom of God unless, they are born again.”

love, spirit, jesus

“No one can enter the Kingdom of God unless, they are born of water and the Spirit. . .  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to the spirit.”      John 3

Do you feel Him? Do you feel Holy Spirit?  Have you sensed angels in the Spirit?  Maybe you have seen the Light of Christ or felt His Presence. Have you had dreams and visions? Do you feel warmth in your body or a nudging pressure in your belly?  Do your fingers tingle when you are worshiping GOD?  These are only a few of the manifestations of our LORD.  He wants to LOVE You and He wants You to LOVE Him back.

This blog is for those of us who LOVE Father, Son & Holy Spirit.  Who want to know Him more.  Who want to feel Jesus.  Who want to LOVE. To worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.  This is a relationship, a Love affair.

Spirit to Spirit our beautiful romance.
