30/04/2011 Recieve the gift of Love Continued.

Have a Blessed Week. I trust you had a lovely Easter Time.

This week I want to carry on with 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

We have already discussed in previous weeks “Love is Patient and Kind, Love does not envy or boast. Its is not Proud.”
 
This week I wish to talk about what God says love is not. He says Love is not Rude!
Love covers all things.. If you walk in love you are operating the way God does, anyone who walks in Gods type of love is His Child. I have shown this in previous messages. You know God is Love as said in 1 John 4:8
I also shared that the world (meaning people) does not know a lot about Gods type of love. Instead the world tries to block out how God says to do things and does its own thing. Spreading satans nature and character by being envious, boastful, prideful, nasty etc…We have seen that Love is more than emotions, Love actually is and does without anything in return. Love sees past yourself to see the bigger picture for all involved. Love is what this world is lacking and people are missing out on the most powerful force that can transform any situation no matter how bad it may appear!

The Apostle Paul wrote to Corinth because they liked the high life, doing their own thing, engaging in stuff that will cause there life harm. He sent a letter to the Christians there warning them. This is where the scripture 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 comes from. Id like to look at:
1 Corinthians 13:13 It continues from the scripture we have been studying and it shows how powerful Love is.
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

LOVE IS THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE!

In fact it says in 1 Corinthians 13:8 - “Love never fails“! I can say from experience it NEVER fails!
Love makes a person and their life in every way possible, evil will try and break them.
Unfortunately there are so many broken people in the world who have suffered at the hands of circumstance or others. This is not what God intended for you, this is what satan intended.

Satan will use anyone who is willing to co operate with him; sometimes without the person even knowing to keep you from experiencing Gods truth and love. Especially If you are good person by nature! As satan never tends to touch His own other than keep them under deception!
In fact satans secret weapons are un forgiveness and lack of love. He is very happy when people operate in these.

However, God loves us so very much as I have shared with scriptures previous weeks. He wants a relationship with you. He wants to love you and yours. He wants you to experience love like never before and its power! His Power! He wants you to experience what many others have experienced in being with Him. Love is powerful… LOVE itself and that’s who God is as said in 1 John 4:18

Deuteronomy 7:9
“Know, recognize, and understand therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, Who keeps covenant and steadfast love and mercy with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations.”

God is FAITHFUL - English Dictionary meaning of Faithful is:


1. Adhering firmly and devotedly, as to a person, cause, or idea; loyal.
2. Having or full of faith.
3. Worthy of trust or belief; reliable.
4. Consistent with truth or actuality

Now that is someone I would want along side me in this world wouldn’t you? Wouldn’t everyone? Sad thing is you can, He has always been there trying to call you yet sadly many ignore His call to them. I am honoured to say that In fact God who is FAITHFUL is alongside me. The one who has been there for me no matter what through the most terrible circumstances of Physical, Emotional and Spiritual pain. And He was all those things above for me and more! He did supernatural indescribable wonders and miracles for me. He had done from the day I was born throughout my life and still is today! The more I grew in Him the more I was shown. Its not because I am more special than the next person. He will be FAITHFUL to all who come to Him. But not just once, Always. He wants you to know Him and have faith in Him. See my blog for a message on Faith.

God Keeps Covenant? Covenant is an in depth subject a wonderful study! I shall only share a tiny amount here today.

The English Dictionary meaning of Covenant is:
1. A binding agreement; a compact.
2. Law ( A formal sealed agreement or contract.)
3. In the Bible, God's promise to the human race.

God holds a LOVE covenant through Jesus Christ and His blood shed for us.
This covenant is legally binding, everlasting UNBREAKABLE! It is Gods promise to us. Satan does not want you to know this! Find out what Gods promises are for you in His word, there are so many and they are the truth and what he wants for you.

Deuteronomy 7:9

“God is steadfast in love and mercy” - His love is continual no matter what, it keeps on going, it never stops. Unlike many who operate in the world today. I myself experienced abandonment as a child. Your parents are supposed to have steadfast love for their child. But that is not the case for so many children today sadly. I was a blessed Child. I had God always with me, waiting for the time I found the truth about Jesus Christ. Although I went through pain with what my natural parents did. God healed that from me with Guess what? Who HE is, LOVE! He wants to do the same things to anyone who goes through any sort of hurt or pain.
All people experience pain in this world anyone who hasn’t wouldn’t be telling the truth. The creator of the universe wants to heal any pain you have had! He wants to walk with people who think they are ok and happy. That’s brilliant but unless you have excepted Christ into your heart as scripture says you are still separated from God. (See my previous blogs). God wants you to walk with him, receive the very best of everything emotionally, physically and spiritually!
He wants a relationship with you no matter what you have done in your past. When you except Christ and ask for forgiveness scripture shows that God does not remember anything you have done for His own sake. He cant look upon sin anyway He is pure Love. This is where kindness, tenderness and forgiveness comes in. We have already discussed a little about kindness.

Ephesians 4:32
"And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you."

God says in the Bible, "I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions ( anything you have done SIN ) for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins"
 

Now we can miss it from time to time. No one is perfect thats the good things about Christ He knows this and doesnt judge but helps you instead.  Helps you so gently that its easy to do if you are willing. Anyone who would rather stay rude is going to miss out on the greatest gift and power ever given LOVE.
See Isaiah 43:25 and Hebrews 8:12

Forgiveness - How can God forgive anyone who still holds a grudge against
Someone. If they are carrying around for years things that people have done to them and not letting it go by forgiving them. Forgiveness is key and and I  will go into depth with in a few weeks time as it part of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. Without this you have a massive block to what God has for you.

So As i have shared Ephesians 4:32, Isaiah 43:25 and Hebrews 8:12

This is Gods steadfast love! He wants to love all people, why do people reject His love? Steadfast love is firmly loyal, constant, unswerving, Un changing. People change their mind and hearts like the wind. God doesn’t!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

Gods word says that “Love is not rude“
What would you say that rude actually is? Lets see what the English dictionary says.
Rude - ill mannered and discourteous.

How many rude people have you come across this week? I can tell you I have had the pleasure of a few and some, unfortunately should know better carrying the precious name of Jesus Christ along with them. I have also come across many kids who are so very rude. Ever heard the saying “Kids today“! In my generation as kids we were absolutely tame to what is happening with some children of today! Doesn’t that tell you something? It shows clearly that evil ( satans Character/nature) is breeding in the world. This is through mankind’s choice, they would rather be in envy, bitterness, offence, nastiness, competition than love! Just think how the next generation will be without Gods love. Its so important that we get our children to experience Gods love. The great thing is Jesus says anyone can come to him.. And he does not look at what you have done.
He wants to nurture you, show you wonderful things. He will help you in His strength and change you for the better from the inside out. I don’t need changing? Everyone has room for improvement, if you think you don’t you are in PRIDE!
With Jesus’ help even the hardest, cruel person can change. That’s Gods power! That’s the power of Him and Love
Jesus was never rude, He always had a smile, the right word and love and support for another. There is a big difference between people disguising rudeness for correction!

“Love is not rude”  1 Corinthians 13:5
Its takes nothing to be good mannered to others instead of being rude to a person for what ever the reason! The reason is not valid period! Even if the person has been rude to you. Give them a smile back it will knock them side ways. Defuse the evil intent and when Love is giving I guarantee the atmosphere will change! That’s Gods Power that’s His LOVE.
Talking over a person who is less vocal that you is rude or who is making more sense that you is rude. Ignoring someone for the sake of it is rude. Even if you do not mean to be rude and you just have not the time to consider another. Its still being Rude. Oh the list could go on. Rudeness is petty, shallow and very obvious in the way you feel about yourself in most cases. It’s a reflection on what’s wrong with you rather than what you have just tried to create for the person you have been rude to. Anyone who is wise would know this. Being rude is contributing to satan’s nature in the world. it’s a lack of consideration for another person or persons. Don’t potentially damage someone deliberately. That is what the wicked spirits in high places want. We all have the ability to be rude. But it is a choice a deliberate choice. You are not forced into being rude. You make the choice to or not. Thoughtfulness for others and getting past yourself and not being rude will give such great rewards. I am talking about stuff that can’t be bought. Being considerate to others is walking in LOVE. If only people would see how silly being rude really is and get past pettiness to the real meat and experience LOVE and its power. This world would not be recognised!

Philippians 2:1-4
“Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”

This is the reward I am talking about joy, like no other. Its strength to you as scripture shows! (see previous blog).
 
Romans 12:9
“Let your love be sincere (a real thing); hate what is evil loathe all ungodliness, turn from wickedness], but hold fast to that which is good.”
 
God loves you and wants you to love others. Its easier than you think. Jesus helps you. God gives you the ability, all you have to do is ask him. He will be right there. Experience His love and share it with others there is a lot to go around and don’t you think this world needs it and just as importantly you deserve it! Gods love YOU, He sent His son to die for you!
Thats How much God thinks you deserve His love! 

Are you ready for the truth?
 
God bless you all

Easter Message 23/04/2011

Have a blessed New week.

I trust you have had a good week. Loves Living Word Ministries UK has been busy!
Praise and glory to God, 3 more people accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior.

I am going to share a small bit about Christ as it’s Easter. And I will continue with 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “ Receive the gift of love” next weekend!

This is the scripture the Holy Ghost has given me for you this week.

John 11:25-“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”

I would like to talk about Jesus Christ and what Easter is really all about.
Its not about chocolate eggs and gift giving. Its not about buying Easter clothes and going out to get plastered. Some people enjoy Easter break and take the opportunity to have time off from work and party. They over eat, indulge in too much drink and spend loads of money yet ignore why Easter is an Easter Feast in the beginning. So lets see why we have Easter Feast. In fact, it seems some people block it out of their mind that Jesus paid the ultimate price once and for all mankind to go free in this life from all evil: and receive eternal life in the next.

Luke 24:1-7

 "On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.  They found the stone rolled away from the tomb,  but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.  In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead?  He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:  ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again."

Jesus’ mission

Ephesians 2:16 "He designed to reconcile (meaning to restore friendship and harmony) to God both Jews and gentiles (every other nation of world) in a single body by means of the cross thereby killing the mutual enmity (A state of opposition; hostility) and bringing the feud to an end.”

Jesus went to the cross and Jesus paid IN FULL sinless with his own blood and was raised from the dead a spirit being so that we could be re united with God. He gained our authority back over dark forces that operate in this world. These spirits help cause sickness, poverty, sexual abuse or permissiveness, addictions, cruelty evil the list goes on… This is satan character and nature in the world as you have read in my previous blogs. You cant see them as they are spirits. Ephesians 6:12
Jesus and His life was predestined see: Mathew 1:23, so that mankind should he choose could live free from the cursed world and satans who is ( the prince of the air) as said in Ephesians 2:2

Jesus endured the cross sinless so you could also receive eternal life in Heaven with God just as God has ALWAYS intended!

John 3:16 “ For God so loved the world he sent His only begotten Son so that whosoever shall believe on Him shall not perish but have ETERNAL LIFE”.

Romans 10:9-10 “That if you shall confess with your mouth that Lord Jesus is Lord, and shall believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.”

Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”

Acts 2:21 “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Romans 5:9-10 "Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life".

As you can see with next scripture that many hear the GOOD NEWS and (it’s the best news you will ever hear) I can tell you right now! Yet through deception or sheer pride or attitude so many are MISSING IT!!! Don’t miss it.

Luke 8:12 “Those by the way side are they that hear; then comes the devil, and takes away the word ( Gods promises out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved”.
Your eternal life depends on this! Don’t believe me test the bible out for yourself. Don’t let satan do this. Get a firm foundation of Gods word Bible and go to a good church, one that is ALIVE with the Holy Spirit and not DEAD ( not teaching the word of God fully) like so many are! One that teaches the truth bible only! Not what men think we need to hear.

Lets take a look at a prophecy from prophet of God “Isaiah” in the Old Testament to see what Jesus was to endure. Isaiah prophesied this ( meaning foretelling or prediction of what is to come )


Isaiah 53:5 “ But He was wounded for our transgression, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of peace and well being was upon Him, and with the stripes that wounded Him we are healed and made whole”
This talks about what Jesus was going to endure on our behalf on the cross. It was physical, emotional, spiritual distress on a level no other human has ever endured. He went through this because of mans fall and separation from God and to show Gods glory, His LOVE in the earth.


Easter is a international holiday about Jesus Christ who was put on the cross for “DOING GOOD and HEALING ALL who were oppressed of the devil for God was with Him” see Act 10:38 however there was a bigger reason. Reconciling us to God.

Eggs symbolise RE BIRTH.. Think about it?
See John 3:3-7 -"Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
“How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”
Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again."

Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you would like to ask Jesus into your life and heart pray this simple prayer aloud.
“Jesus, I make you Lord and savour of my Life. Thank you for dying on the cross for me. Come into my heart and show me the way, Forgive me for my sins. Guide me and show me the way. In Jesus Christ Name Amen ( so be it)”.

If you have said that prayer you are now a re born spirit filled Christian. Your spirit which was dormant is now awakened/ressurected and you have gained eternal life and the precious gift of the Holy Spirit and His Fruits now live in you. Galatians 5:22 The Holy Spirit is part of the trinity ( God The Father, God The Son and God The Holy Spirit) Search scripture and see.

Romans 8:11- “ And if the spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you then He (God) who raised Jesus from the dead will also restore LIFE to your mortal bodies through His spirit who lives in you”

John 16:13 - “But when he, the Spirit of truth ( Holy Spirit), comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”

You are now marked as a child of God and every spirit in the spirit realm knows you are Gods now! Well done.. So happy for you. Millions of angels are cheering right now in Heaven. So are the Saints, especially Jesus and your Father in Heaven.
Jesus said:
John 14:16 “I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the father except by me”
If you just said that prayer you just did!!!!

Now lets look at the scripture we are studying again

John 11:25-“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”

Lets look at what the word resurrection means first?
In English dictionary it means:
1. The act of rising from the dead or returning to life.
2. The state of one who has returned to life.
3. The act of bringing back to practice, notice, or use; revival.

“Jesus was the resurrection and the life”

How could Jesus come back to life when He had died on the cross? He died a human being and raised as a spirit being.
1 Peter 3:18
“For Christ also has once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh ( body), but quickened ( made alive) by the Spirit”. When He resurrected in spirit, where did He go?

Ephesians 1:20-23
“ Which He exerted in Christ when he (God) raised Jesus from the dead and seated Him at the hand (of God) in heavenly place far above all rule and authority and Power and dominion and every name that is named not only in this age and this world but also in the age and the world which is to come and he has put ALL THINGS under his feet and appointed Him (Jesus) the supreme head of church (the real church that is not the one the world is portraying) Which is His body (that’s is believers in Christ).

This is a position of authority. In triumph over what? satan of course! Anyone who excepts Christ is with him . So you no longer have to put up with poverty, ill health, the curse, addictions, things that control you and put you in chains ( bondage), sexual sin and its misuse. The Occult is a MAJOR deception but that is something I shall share later on. For now stay Clear of all occult it opens you wide up to satan and his demons. God has had your life predestined. See Ephesians 1:4-5
Question is have you done anything about this or are you just going to let God pass you by? Think about it? The creator of the UNIVERSE all of it. Every star constellation every planet, The God who said Light be in and it was as it says in Genesis 1 wants a personal loving relationship with you! ( note as my Pastor shared with me once) God didn’t say light stop! Light travels at speed of Light Check its out scientifically. Its still travelling now! it He will guide you, not control you like satan does.
 
John 11:25 -“I am the resurrection and the LIFE

Romans 8:11- “ And if the spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you then He ( God ) who raised Jesus from the dead will also restore LIFE to your mortal bodies”

John 10:10“ satan comes but to steal to kill and to destroy but I have come that you might have LIFE and have it in all its fullness”.

John 6:35 "I am the bread of LIFE, He who comes to me will never be hungry and He who believes in me (trusts and relies) shall never go thirsty”.

And the underlined part "He who believes in me shall never go thirsty" takes us to the next part of the scripture we are studying
 
John 11:25 - “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”
Jesus appeared in spirit form and full form to his disciples many times after he had been on the cross.
On one occasion Thomas a disciple of Jesus Christ refused to believe that it was Jesus actually Jesus until Thomas could put His hand through Jesus’ holes where the nails had been in his hands. This guy had walked with Jesus been taught by Jesus seen all the miracles done by him, saw the way so called religious people tried to kill him saw many turn against Him .Saw His love experienced His love. This guy must have either saw or heard of the darkness that came in the sky the day he was on the cross and the earthquake that happened yet still doubted briefly that it was actually Him. Why it was a supernatural things something that bypasses mans logical brain. Yet when He put His fingers through Jesus’ wholes He said “You are my Lord and my God “in John 20:28 He  then believed and recognised Jesus as God!

John 20:29-Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed“.

Having not seen Christ in person yet still believeing in him and having a personal relationship with him in SPIRIT Jesus says makes us BLESSED!

How do you get to believe in Jesus and what he did? You get to know him. Where ? Through His word, through hearing it preached and taught in a good church that’s ALIVE not dead! You invite Him into your life, have Him (Jesus) come live inside you through the Holy Ghost. You focus your attention on what he did, what the truth says He is , did and is still doing today.

Hebrews 13:8 - “Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever”

Only when you get to know something and understand it can you fully trust it yet God gave all of us a measure of faith see: Romans 12:3
And this is what is used when you call to Jesus.

You don’t concentrate on what negative people or the world has said about Him. There is so much deception and lies regards the church, there has been throughout history why? Satan doesn’t want people finding out the truth and being saved. He wants them suffering in hell. And suffer they will see: in particular The book of Revelation to find that out.
That’s a whole other subject and I will go into this when the Holy Ghost wills.

Its up to you once you have been shown to truth to do a bit of digging instead of being a blind sheep like so many are, denying that Jesus ever existed and ignoring His mighty Power. There is no disputing the fact that Jesus Christ did in fact exist, again do some study for yourself. He is still doing to this day what he did when he walked on the earth. He is doing this through His spirit living in people and working all over the earth. Mighty moves of God go on all over the world and the media cover it up with what the government wants to put on your screen. Its all there to feed you. Feed you lies. Don’t believe most of what you see on the news and in newspapers. But I am sure you already know that right! Instead of being concerned about what the next celebrity has been up to or wearing find out what Jesus did for you. Who He is. Who he was when He came to earth. Who is now in Heaven. Who you are except Him into your life. You’re a Kings Kid that’s who you are. He’s got your back. He will do mighty and wonderful things for you just as He did when He was here on the earth. The ones who put him on the cross did so knowing full well all He had ever done was as Act 10:38 says “He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil for God was with him”
Things haven’t change today in the world look around you look at the way people are, severely oppressed of the devil and behaving badly to people who do good. They thought they had won but It was the most powerful miricle to have happened. His RESSURECTION and now people all over the world are being RESSURECTED through His spirit unto Eternal Life. Nothing and No one could ever stop God! Although sadly they may try! Jesus actually said Father Forgive them for they no not what they do on the cross? He was asking the Lord God to forgive them why? Because Jesus was sent for Mankind to REDEEM them from eternal death and sepration from God yet. as it says in scripture some ( those who chose to think and believe and behave like satan ) They were not aware due to deception from satan and the curse who He was and there pride got in the way and they wanted him gone! So even after enduring what He did Physcically Emotinally and Spiritually Jesus Christ still wanted His Father to forgive them. Thats LOVE! AGAPE LOVE.
Look how bad things are in this world and its going to get an awful lot worse scripture says and you know what? Scripture has been right so far over everything. All foretold NOTHING comes anywhere near even remotely close! Things will change and you will gain everything and more, more  than you ever dreamed possible if you except Jesus as your Lord. it’s a free gift of LOVE.

God is a spirit in fact He is the Ultimate spirit - John 4:24 “God is a spirit and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”.

Romans 8:14
“For all who are led by the spirit are the sons of God”

In the last part of John 11:25 “though he were dead, yet shall he live”

You are no longer dead? How can I be dead when I am alive now?

Separation from God is death, eternity away from Him is spiritual death.
We have physical death where our body gives in but our spirit which is eternal lives on.. This is why Jesus Christ was sent back. To awaken/Ressurect you! 

2 Tim 1:10 "but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel"

John 3:5- Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.”

Ezekiel 36:26 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”

2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

1 John 5:4 “For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.

So as you can see Easter is far more than chocolate eggs, clothes and partying. Its Exactly what Your Father in Heaven did for you 2000 years ago and is still doing for you today. He loves you. No matter what you have done or ever could do. That’s the difference between God and man. His love is Eternal.

John 11:25-“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”

Are you ready for the truth?
Have a blessed Holy Season,

God bless you and yours this week

17/04/2011 receive the gift of love continued


Have a Blessed weekend!
Please read last weekends message first as we have covered a small part of the scripture so far!
We have been studying 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

Its a beautiful scripture. a powerful scripture. One that is over looked by many in church and certainly outside of believers.
The world and its people need Gods love, need us to walk in this love. The power of love is so powerful its a weapon without even realising it!
Weapon against what? Spiritual Wickedness in high places.
Ephesians 6:12" For we wrestle not against flesh and blood ( man ) but against principalities, ( angel Ranks) against powers, ( angel ranks) against the rulers of the darkness of this world ( people working alongside satan/ILLUMINATI), against spiritual wickedness in high places."

This is what is operating in our world and on mankind. This is what happened when Adam and Eve back in Genesis 3 gave authority over to satan and why the world was cursed. See last weeks message!
Walking in Love is bringing Gods nature and character into the world. Instead of satans. The power of love is like no other.
1 John 4:8 " He who does not love has not become acquainted with God, for GOD IS LOVE"God is love, He doesn’t just feel it or act in it. He IS love.

1 John 4:7 “Beloved, Let us love one another, for love is from God; and He who loves his fellowmen is born of God and coming to know and understand God.”
 

God wants us to spread His love as Jesus Christ did. Jesus came and Freed all He came into contact with from satanic bondage (chains/ things that hold you back).
Jesus Christ Healed all who were oppressed of the devil…


Acts 10:38 "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him."
The definition of healing in the English Dictionary is much more than from sickness or disease. HEALING means:

To restore to health or soundness; cure. (that’s the power of love)

To set right; repair: healed the rift between us. (that’s the power of love)

To restore (a person) to spiritual wholeness. (that’s the power of love)

To become whole and sound; return to health. (that’s the power of love)
This is how God intended for mankind to be. He gave us Jesus Christ and anyone who excepts him into their heart can receive these!

John 1:4:9-11 says:
“ In this love of God was made manifest where we are concerned: in that God sent His son, the only begotten (born) son into the world so that we might LIVE through HIM.In this love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation ( atoning sacrifice) for our sins.Beloved, if God loved us so very much, we also ought to love one another

God wants us to Love one another just as he loves us. Gods love as shown in last weeks message is Agape love ( unconditional/not wanting anything in return/not ruled by emotions)
When you are in Christ ( have Jesus in your heart and life ) you receive His love and his life. This is from your Father who loves you, He wants to be in a relationship with you and guess what? You really can. Billions of us are already doing that. Having a personal relationship with our maker! God wants us to be like him and spread love to all people and the world. The world could do with it don’t you think?
Have you had a look around lately as to what is happening all over the world due to the curse, mans choice and satan.
The News if full of it. I don’t even watch it because of this yet I know so many who are fixed on the doom and gloom that is happening. Its poison!
You really don’t have to live like that infact you could live so very well and give it to others too.


John 1:4-5 " In Him (Jesus) was LIFE, and the LIFE was the LIGHT of all men".

Mathew 5:16 " Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven."

Loving God, the world and others.  Doing good glorifies the Father in Heaven, your Father in Heaven.

Jesus said in John 15:9-11 “ As the Father has loved me so have I loved you; continue in my Love. If you keep my commandments you shall abide (live) in my love, even as I have kept my Fathers commandments, and abide in His love.
This part is one major reason why God Says its wise to do this!

Verse 11: “ These things I have spoken to you, that my joy (Jesus‘) might remain in you and that your joy might be full”.

Gods word says in Nehemiah 8:9 that “The joy of the Lord is your strength“!

Do you want to be strong in all situations? God wants you to be, Do you want to hold out when times get rough? Gods wants you too. They all come down to walking in LOVE. Why was Jesus sent back? Jesus Christ was sent to earth because God loves us so much. God wanted to redeem man back from satans clutches and free them in their life here on earth but also eternally. If you have read last weeks message you will know we are a spirit being and that the spirit is eternal. ( lives on forever ) just not in this earthly body!
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten son, that who so ever shall believe on him shall not perish but have eternal life"

Ephesians 2:4 “But God--so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us.”
Thats Powerful!

The power of Gods love

1 Corinthians 12:31But earnestly desire and zealously cultivate the greatest and best gifts and graces. And yet I will show you a still more excellent way (one that is better by far and the highest of them all--love)Love is more powerful and more excellent than anything!
Why GOD IS LOVE
Fear is the opposite of love and the bible says perfect love casts out all fear!
1 John 4:18 " There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love."

I have used that scripture as have many any time fear has entered in to my life. This isn’t from God but satan. Spirit of Fear! I can say that once that scripture was spoken out in faith Fear left. That’s the power of Gods word and His love.

So lets look at more of this beautiful scripture we are studying. And what God says love is not!1 Corinthians 13:4-8"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

Love is not proud - Pride is how satan fell! Please read Ezekiel 28. We covered this last weekend. When in pride you elevate yourself/puff yourself up.In English dictionary the definition of Proud is:
Too High Opinion - Thinking that you are more important, skilful etc than you really are.
A proud person who would not admit to their mistakes.


Great Self Respect - Having respect for yourself, so that you are embarrassed to ask for help when you are in a difficult situation.
Proud - Thinking you are too superior to get help. Loftiness - Elevated in character and spirit. ( puffing yourself up)
Arrogant - Thinking you are better than other people or more important than you are.
Haughty and Lordly - Thinking you are more superior either in position or birth.
Pompous ( excessively arrogant ) Showing how important you are.
Overbearing - Exercising power in a cruel way, to be harsh, severe. Oppressive (heavy/ burdensome) or disrespectful, insulting, rude.

Is it just me or are so many people like this today? Everywhere you go there are people behaving like this. PRIDE covers a large spectrum. There is that famous saying “there is always one” never mind always one. There are millions of people behaving like this and guess what? Is it Gods nature they are taking after or satans? You got it satans. Who would want to take after satan? He is pure evil.
Jesus said to the Pharisee’s (religious people funny enough) the ones who had him killed trying to stop His love and light spreading to the world.

John 8:44  “You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and stayed not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”





Satan is a murderer, liar, thief and wants to keep you with him so that you don’t receive the truth. Satan wants to keep all people in Pride and everything that isn’t love. Why? To steal what is yours. To stop you receiving what God has for you. To keep you in deception and He loves you denying God and blaming God for all that is happening in the world.

The world is full of Prideful people! Lets see what Gods word says about things like hatred.. Pride is one of the reasons why hatred can come. Lets see what scripture says about hatred And what loves can do instead.

Proverbs 10:12 “ Hatred stirs up contentions ( rivalry), but love covers all transgressions ( sins, violations).

Proverbs 15:17 “Better a dinner of herbs where love is than a fattened ox and hatred with it.”
1 John 4:20-21 “ If anyone says, I love God and hates his brother, he is a liar; For He who does not love His brother, whom He has seen, cannot love God, whom He has not seen”. And this command we have from Him ( Jesus ) that He who loves God shall love His brother also.

This may be difficult to do if someone is behaving badly to you, you may want to lash out give them a taste of their own medicine so to speak. BUT if you do you are breeding satans nature, and giving him access into your life” to steal to Kill, to destroy” as it says in John 10:10. Its poison!

It may be difficult If you have had a hard life so far. Things can change you have heard the truth here.
No one is perfect but through Jesus you receive Gods nature, His abilities to cope with this sort of thing. As I have already shown you in last weeks message.

In Galatians 5:22 His nature and character is “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance”.

Jesus gives comfort in our sufferings:
Romans 5:5 “ such hope never disappoints or shames us, For Gods love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given unto us".

And when you except Christ Jesus into your life and heart, You really can overcome such a thing.

Philipians 4:13 “I can do all things by Christ Jesus who strengthens me”. If I can do it and believe me I have suffered my fair share in wrongs you can do it too!

Lets look at Pride itself.


Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Haughty means ( condescendingly and scornfully proud)
Isaiah 5:21 “Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.” 

Proverbs 26:1 “Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.”John 5:44 “How can you believe if you accept praise from one another, yet make no effort to obtain the praise that comes from the only God?”
 

Now the good part,


Romans 5:8 “ But Gods shows His own love for us by the fact that while we were still yet sinners ( in Sin nature because of fall of man) Christ dies for us".
Jesus said:Mathew 5:44 “But I tell you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you."

Love is what this world needs. Love is what you need. Gods love is available.
Always has been, to receive but also to give. All for the highest good. Spread love, get rid pride it will destroy you and others. Get to know your maker. Your Father in heaven through His word and have a personal relationship with Him through Christ Jesus. I guarantee you will be glad you did. And you will experience TRUE POWER! His love is the ultimate power!


Power against evil in this world and operating in the spirit realm. Power over your life and your families. Power in your work place. Power like you have never encountered against all odds!
Don’t just sit back and carry on as if all is ok. You will find out the hard way that actually it isn’t.


If you have pride  get into it aside accepting Jesus into your heart, All you need to do is Ask God to help you and HE WILL, in fact you will find out He has been waiting for you to ask and give it to HIM.
We don’t have to be slaves to darkness. He wants you to operate like He does and make such a difference for your own life and the life of many others. Are you selfish or don’t care? Or do you want to give what was given to you? Freely?
Love is more than a feeling. Love gives no matter what. For nothing in return, always! You operate like that You will have joy and strength beyond your wildest dreams. Satan doesn’t want you to experience that. Sad thing is its free! Its your choice. God gives you a choice. He would never violate your freewill. That’s the POWER of LOVE!

Are you ready for the truth?



God bless you this new week.
God loves you,


Love

09/04/2011 Weekend Message.... Recieve the gift of Love!

Have a blessed weekend!

I would like to share a little about Gods Character, His personality, His whole being.
He is LOVE.

When people hear the word love, they automatically think its that feeling you get when you meet someone you want to share your life with or how you feel for your partner. You think about how you feel towards a family member and difine love as this. LOVE is so much deeper than feelings. LOVE is who God is.

There are Four types of Love: In the bible three types of love are mentioned. The words for the types of love come from the Greek Language.

Agape - This is God's Love it is unconditional, continual, no matter what!      

            John 3:16  Psalm 107:1

Eros -    Love that a man and wife would share (human love) sexual love and affection.
               Genesis 2:24


Philio-  Love for your children- Brotherly love  and love for your country.
           1 Peter 1:22 and 2 Peter 1:7,


1 Corinthians 13:4-8

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails."


Love is patient - God never gives up on you. He is willing to wait years for you to finally acknowledge Him. He is always in the background waiting for you even when you are deliberately doing wrong. His patience is something the world knows little about. When you except Jesus into your life and seek God and your meaning here on this earth. One of the free gifts God gives you is his Patience. What a gift to have! His supernatural patience.
I can tell you from experience that this is such a blessing when you are waiting for breakthrough in certain areas in your life. You recieve such peace and the ability to hold out in any circumstance with assurance that all is exactly where it is supposed to be and that God is in Control!

Jesus said:

Romans 8:25

"But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience".

Psalm 40:1
"I waited patiently for the Lord; He inclined His ear to me and heard my cry."

John 14:27   "Peace I leave with you, Peace I give unto you.


Love is Kind - Kindness is part of Gods wonderful Character, It costs nothing to be kind to others and this world. Kindness is a beautiful gift to give to others. That act of kindness might just be the one and only thing that a person needs to stop them going over the edge!. God requires you to be kind to others. People need this as they face what the world brings to them. Try and see the bigger picture. When you walk in Kindness, the joy it brings is just beautiful. Joy is a powerful tool that God has given us in order to live well here on this earth. Joy brings strength. His strength in any situation. Try it and see the rewards it brings.

Galatians 5:22-23
" But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."

Colossians 3:11-13
" Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience."

Joel 2:13
 "Turn to the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness"

Love does not envy - Envy is bitterness, The word itself says alot; BITTERNESS. If you are bitter in the inside, you will be bitter on the outside and to others. This is satans character not Gods.
Be happy for others for they have there own cross to bear. Don't envy how they are, what they look like, what they can do, what they have. You are unique. God created you so special to him and to the world. Don't let satan take that away from you and give you bitterness instead! Envy will breed to other things and you will be taken over by evil emotions and attitudes. Once you realise that Love is the most powerful force given by God as He is LOVE, then walking in it and using love brings such results. Its obliterates darkness!
However you do have a free will, that is the beauty of God and who He is LOVE.
He would never force you to do anything, so you have a choice. A wise person would choice wisely and walk in Love. Envy will destroy you eventually. James 3:16


Now read James 3:17 " But the wisdom that is peaceable is from above, gentle and EASY to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits ( what is produced and attained) without Partiality ( all of us mean as much to him as one another, He does not love one more than the other) and without hypocrisy ( walking the walk not just talking the talk).


James 3:16
That is not what God intends for you. You must find out what God says about you. How He sees you. Who He says you are! Instead of feeling jealous, unworthy, inadequate to the next person and the world. If you see someone being blessed or succeeding be happy for them. If someone is good looking and you have felt down about how you look, don't blame them and cause strife, don't hate them. They don't deserve that! See yourself as God sees you. Get to know him, you will find that the lie satan has created and put on you, makes you feel inadequate and down on self. You will find that it will have disappeared if you have learnt all that God shares in His word. Don't envy or think ill of others, you are feeding evil into the world, your body and self.  Its POISON and will destroy you and your life but also other peoples lives including childrens and that is NOT ON! 
Jesus said:
Mathew 18:1

"See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven."

 If you are envious of a person because of what they have achieved or what they have, read Gods word. You would find out that you can achieve success and have what you desire to!!!! God wants this for you. Satan doesn't.

" If you can, ALL things are Possible to those that believe "

 it says in Mark 9:23!

Focus on your goal instead of envying and sowing evil. See yourself as God sees you. Read what God has given you in the bible in order to achieve it. Its that easy!!!!

No one is Perfect. Until You become perfect In Christ as scripture says in Mathew 5:48

 "Mark 9:23 "If you can, ALL things are possible to those that believe"   

 (You have a choice to believe or to think badly). Choose well!


Love does not Boast - Boast definition in the English dictionary: To glorify oneself in speech - talk in a self admiring way. To speak of with excessive pride
Anyone who boasts about what they have, who they are, what they do or have done etc is full of pride!


You will see in the bible in Ezekiel 28:12-19 that satan was full of pride and that is how the beautiful Cherubim Angel dressed in beauty and jewels fell. That is how satan/devil known as Lucifer meaning ( morning star ) was banished from Heaven and Gods presence.

Since God is love, He could not have pride and envy around Him: it defiled the sanctuary of Gods presence and holiness.  Habbakuk 1:13
Satan had a choice, he chose to ignore all that God had already given him and the blessing he was to be. Instead He wants to be worshipped, He wants to be God. ( something he will never be)
He didn't want to do as he was supposed to, He was very beautiful scripture says and He corrupted the wisdom given. He didn't want to serve God, satan had the job of serving as a personal guardian to Gods presence and Holiness. See Ezekiel 28:14-17.
Wow to be in Gods presence and pure love. How could anyone even a Cherubim choose pride and evil over such beauty and pure love?
God is a good God - He gives all mankind and His Angels the free will to choose. He doesn't force anyone to do anything. So if you ever get pressure from anything instead of peace you know its not from GOD!

Satan ( the devil) is winning in your life if you are boastful, full of pride and envy towards people or anything in your life or others.
He wants you to be in pride and envy just like him; so that He (the devil) can gain more entry into your life to "Steal,  to Kill and to Destroy" as the scripture says in John 10:10.

(He stole so much from me, tried to kill me with a serious illness and tried to destroy me too! Praise God, that Father had my back! He straightened everything out for me.
 Only due to me making changes, being willing,  being corrected, studying His word, building a strong foundation and personal relationship with him through the tools given in scripture.
They are: The name of Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, Prayer, Worship, Study, Trusting Him and His word the bible. It has been best thing I have ever done.  Im happier and loving life more than words could express.  Its my true life, the one God had planned for me before I was born. He has your life planned out, mapped out before you were born too that will never change;

In Romans 8:9 it says:

"Your gifts and  calling is without repentance " ( meaning before you were born you were destined to fellowship with God in some way. You were destined should you choose to  walk in your calling. Even if you don't chose to, your gifts and calling are irrevocable.. You cant give them back, they don't get taken away). However God still gives you the choice!  Some have more gift's and calls more than others, everyone is different. Everyone unique, everyone prescious and very special in Gods and Jesus Christ's eye. Its up to you once you are told the truth to actually do something about it. Enjoy your life here on the earth, receive His love, support, blessings, wisdom, success, power, health and truth.

You don't want the devil operating in your life. Instead you should be filled with the Holy Spirit and have Gods spirit operating for you, just as You where created too!

1John 4:15
"Whoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him, and he in God".


Having envy, pride, and boasting operating in your life would cause a block in the workings of God in your life. You are feeding satan and his character would be operating on you. Harsh words; they aren't mine but Gods. God is sharing this for a very good reason its so easy to follow God and not get into envy, pride, boastfullness ( stepping out of LOVE) by giving everything to him.

Those feelings are not yours to own, you do not have to carry that around with you. So you can be free from envy and pride and receive Gods free gift of LOVE and power instead. Choose wisely!

Don't boast, be a men pleas er or have the need for praise. Your Father in heaven sees what you are doing. He will reward you not man. Jesus said this! Search Scripture to find this!!! Instead Be HUMBLE.

HUMILITY is the opposite of Boasting - Humility is Gods character:
Humble in the English Bible means: "Marked by meekness or modesty in behavior, attitude, or spirit; not arrogant or prideful".
LOVE is so much more powerful than boasting. Walk in LOVE, be humble, you are winning if you do. You are loosing if you are continually boastful. Its as easy as that! God's love was and still is so powerful for us that He sent His only son back to the earth as it says in:

John 3:16 " For God so Loved the world He gave His only begotten son, That who so ever should believe on Him should not perish but have eternal life"
So not only was Jesus born into the world with a mission from birth on His hands. He was to lead a separate holy life unlike other people and to carry out what His mission was. This was to save mankind from the curse ( the fall ) Read Genesis 3 . Jesus Healed ALL who were oppressed of the devil.  (Search The gospels you will see this!) And most importantly, When Jesus Christ died on the cross a sinless man even though He could have sinned, He went to the cross  (by choice). Jesus Christ could have called myriads of Angels to free him at any point but didn't. With this Jesus fulfilled hundreds of prophecies of the Old Testament... theses were given of a period of 2000 year previous.  In doing so, Jesus Christ regained authority from satan over mankind and freed us from the curse and satans clutches should you chose to follow him and turn you life around from darkness to light.

Anyone who excepts Jesus Christ for doing this, who confesses with their mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord asks for forgiveness and asks Jesus into their heart is saved.
see Romans 10:9!
Saved from what? Like I said Saved from cursed world,  you are given ALL authority over dark forces, much power and most importantly; You are sealed with the free gift of the Holy Spirit.

 1 John 4:15
" Whoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him, and he in God."

 This is a mark of Protection and when you pass on/die, you being a spirit being as man was created in Genesis. Instead of going to Hell you are saved to receive eternal salvation with God in heaven. Again just as you were created to, satan deceived and stole this right from you back in Genesis 1 , 2, and chapters 3


THIS IS GODS LOVE FOR YOU......


This is the scripture we are studying,

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails."

Gods love is out there... it always has been.

The Holy Ghost and the right people make sure you get to know about it! Its their Job! The world has been under huge deception from satan.The world is crying out because of the weight of evil and sin. ( earthquakes floods etc ) This was prophesied over and over many times in the bible it is happening now! Luke 21:11

God is a GOOD - Anything God comes from him. Security, Success in ALL things, Doctors/nurses. Police, Carers, Counsellors, Minsters etc. Success in LIFE, Spiritual Power, Knowledge and Truth, Health, Love, Peace, Happiness.

Satan is BAD -Anything bad comes from Him.Childmurderers, rapists, drug addicts, domestic violence, eating disorders, envy, bitterness, insecurity stem from satans character and man chooses to be this by His free will.

You have no excuse now, You have a choice to learn and find out the truth or to ignore and stay in deception. You have been told the truth just as God has ordained me to share.

I pray that you are awakened in the name of Jesus Christ and that your eyes are opened and spiritual scales taken off. That you have the motivation to live in truth not lies. Lies end in disaster here on earth but more importantly eternally.. In Jesus Christ Mighty and Holy Name, Amen. ( so be it )

We will continue with this scripture 1 Corinthians 13 next weekend!

Are you ready for the truth?


God Bless you and He Loves you
