18/06/2011 What is TRUTH? Recieve Gods Free Gift of LOVE!

God bless you this week In Jesus Christ Holy Name. How have you been? I trust you are well and have had a wonderful week. You know the best thing to do when you have been through a tough time is to go to the only one who can really help. God is waiting to hear off so many people. Jesus paid the ultimate price with his life and blood so that you could have a relationship with your heavenly Father. Jesus is waiting to hear from you. We face many situations and sometimes it appears we are on our own., I want to let you know that if you are a born again believer of Christ, It will be God carrying you through the roughest parts, shielding you from the fiery darts of the enemy. You are never facing this alone. You must call out to him and give him your situations. We were not made to carry around such heaviness. Our bodies and minds are just not built for those oppressive situations. Always remember to give to your heavenly Father the situations you find yourself faced with. He will take them from you and deal with them. He will shield you from the worst. If you are not born again and haven’t asked Jesus into your heart you can right now. You don’t have to face anything alone again. In fact you have never been alone in the first place. Jesus is waiting to hear from you, God is waiting to show you the truth. His truth. He has been holding out on you for such along time and still will for as long as it takes. But know this time is going by. We are in the age of Grace ( un merited Favour ) That is mercy we do not deserve. Favour we do not deserve yet God loves you and wants you to take this time to be re united with him. He has offered His grace for a very long time now in fact for over 2000 years. The signs continually show us that it draws closer and closer to the end of the age. Will you be with God or with The father of this world? Something to think about this week. God loves you. God bless you.
We will continue this week with 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. We have had a small look into much of the scripture and last week we finished with “Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth“.
So in continuation of that part of the scripture Lets talk about truth and what truth is. Gods word is truth.
In 1 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”
Lets break this down a little:
All scripture is given by inspiration of God ( it means that all scripture is God breathed) God worked through the prophets in the Old testament and New testament. The Holy Spirit working with them (part of the trinity). Just as God breathed His breath into man making us a speaking spirit, God breathed his words through man to write the bible. Not all the bible is God actually speaking, there are parts when other people talk and this is very important to learn when you get to know how to interpret the scriptures.
 
 
Gods spoken words are so powerful as you will see in Genesis 1 at the beginning of the bible God said “light Be and it was” ( interesting fact) - we know through scientific proof that Light is still travelling at the speed of light, it hasn’t stopped and cant be stopped. Why? Because God didn’t say Light Stop He said LIGHT BE!!! Gods word brings things into being, things are created, so that shows that the bible which is Gods word when spoken is full of power. Hundreds of prophecies of The coming of Jesus Christ came through prophets in the old testament. This was from God and all came to pass, came into being. “Gods word does not return unto him void but goes to where it is sent” as we see in Isaiah 55:11
It is a mighty tool to use in this world against fallen angels and life circumstances. If you are to speak anything about a situation I learnt that instead of speaking the problem like you are used to. God showed me in his word that I was to speak His word which is the answer. If it is in Gods will then You can be sure it can and will happen if you speak it out in faith. And there are hundreds of scriptures in the bible concerning healing!
Proverbs 4:20
“My son attend to my words, incline your ear to my sayings Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh."
Gods words are POWERFUL!

If you have read my blog you will know I had a brain injury which affected the whole of my body. This was due to a blood disorder that was undetected in my body. The doctors could not help me. In fact in the beginning they were of no help at all and didn’t quite no what to do. I learnt that it was Gods will to heal all people who had sickness and disease. And it was up to me to receive His healing in faith. Gods words says faith comes by hearing the word of God, Romans 10:17 “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“.
How else would I know that God can heal anyone who comes to him with any aliment or illness they have and better still He wants to. The bible truth shares that he is not the cause of Sickness in the world today. Sickness is part of the curse and death which entered into the world due to Adam and Eve being tempted by the devil and giving in to the devil instead of doing the one thing God told them not to do. Just that one thing! They had everything and was told one little thing not to do and guess what the devil came along and boom they did it and the curse came in. the enemy gained control and dominion over mankind and the world! See Genesis 3 I only learnt all this after I read Gods divine and Holy Scriptures. All those years I didn’t read it followed what the world and people said about it. Instead of reading the truth. And then understanding why so many things are happening in the world today. The truth doesn’t just share the truth it gives the answers in truth too. God is so good!
I learnt the truth that the word of God being alive and powerful (an actual living thing) see Hebrew 4:12 was like a medicine to my body. I spoke out many healing scriptures over my body daily like a medicine. Gods word is powerful because unlike the doctors not being able to help me or cure me only manage the pain. I was left unable to walk at times or with a limp. Gods word strengthened my body and sure enough the limp left!. This is the power of Gods breathed word!
God gave us his guidance, wisdom and will for a reason, so that we as His children could benefit from them. His word is the ultimate truth and the ultimate power. It is called the sword of the spirit see Ephesians 6
The next part of 1 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”
It is profitable for doctrine- Profitable in this sense literally means (beneficial rewarding, useful, valuable, win-win, fruitful)
So firstly Gods word is all of those. That’s sounds pretty good. It is the truth, this is why the enemy has had so many people believing that the bible is boring, it doesn’t make sense, and all the stigma that goes along with it. Its a lie from the pit of hell. The enemy knows that anyone who digs deep into the bible (Gods words) and applies it to their life is in win-win situation and in fact all the promises given in the bible are there for the taking. God wants that for His children, remember we have seen John 10:10 that Jesus said
“Satan came to Kill to steal and to destroy, But I have come that you might have life in all its fullness” Well the first part of the scripture is exactly what is happening to people all over the world who don’t know what Gods words says let alone apply it to their lives. They are being robbed something silly of the blessings and promises of God and there are thousands of them. The truth has been suppressed by many and unfortunately many would rather believe what they hear without actually checking it out for themselves and digging deep. This is the way many people are today and think they have a right to comment on people who do understand and do have Gods wisdom working in their life. People who have never read the bible or dug deep into it have no right to comment and argue that it is just a book and it is not real. Everything recorded in this living book actually happened. It is not like a novel or Children’s story although there are some great recordings of what happened to many mighty men and women of God. It is not like the myths or a legend. It is not like Greek mythology or any other false religion. Instead it is recordings of true life events with the almighty God who lives. It is recordings of Jesus Christ here on the earth. It is Gods words spoken throughout time to Prophets and as we have already seen it is recordings of 1000’s of prophecys with many that have already come to pass. Jesus fulfilling 300 of them himself.
In the Gospel of John He wrote by Inspiration of the Holy Spirit ( God breathed)
John 1:1-5"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it."

In Psalms 119:105 it says: "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."

This world is full of darkness I don’t need to say much about this other than look at what is happening around the world. Murder, rapes, illness, death list goes on they are part of the curse. Not from God but the enemy the devil we have seen this in previous blogs. We also Know God gave us a window to be free from this and the devils control. This is by Jesus Christ being sent back who was the word in flesh. See John 3:16 as we have seen in previous blogs. The scripture says the Gods word was there in the very beginning as he was the word. Its says in him ( Jesus) was LIFE and that the darkness cant understand it. Anyone without Christ in their heart is in darkness whether you believe it or not. Without Him in your heart, You are not awakened by the spirit of God and you are dormant and separated from God through the fall of man and the curse. This is why it is not understood.
The book is not just any old book you see on the shelf of a store or library. This book is supernatural. it’s the truth of God, His Divine Word, Its alive, (living) Powerful, it’s a weapon used in combat. How can a book be alive? Same way you and me are here today. God created it by speaking it through prophets of His and it came into being through them.
It is an incorruptible seed. scripture says in 1 Peter 1:23 (It means it cannot be broken or undermined or damaged or taken away or changed. Gods word is eternal just as He is an as are we and it is final Authority.)
Psalm 119:89 says “ Forever, O lord, your word is settled in Heaven”

Isaiah 40:8 says “The grass withers, the flower fades: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”
It is the TRUTH no matter what anything or anyone says it doesn’t change this FACT! . Gods word hasn’t changed. It cannot change and will never change. Gods word is a powerful book of living seeds and the enemy has tried to keep this wonderful TRUTH, The ONLY TRUTH away from you all your life.
John 8:31-32 “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Psalms 33:4 “For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.”
 
 
A seed is something you plant into the ground, water it, feeding it and it grows into whatever seed it was. So for example. An orange tree. Its sown into the ground feed and watered given light (lots of it) and within due season it grows oranges. Year after year. The word of God is the same as the principle of the orange tree. It is a seed. Every scripture spoken out produces a harvest ( meaning produces what was spoken in Faith) it doesn’t happen straight away at times as there is a season to all seeds but if it is planted in solid ground it will grow. There is a need for a firm foundation and when this is established You will see Gods word taking affect in your life.

Jesus said in Luke 8:11-15 to his disciples:
The seed is the word of God. Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. ( don’t be like that person, Receive Jesus Christ into your life and heart right now ask him in!) See Romans 10:9-10
But the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away. ( this is someone who heard Gods word received it, understood it but because they still had sin in their life giving a door to the devil they lost it and gave in to temptation that devil brings)
Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity. So the seed that they spoke Gods word could no grow properly because it had no fertile soil to grow in. ( meaning the persons life is in consistent, not stable and weak in spirit)
But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience. " ( those who have accepted Christ into their life and heart, that have turned away from their old ways. The ways of the world and evil. And have built up a solid foundation in their life and spirit feeding on the word of God. They WILL produce FRUIT! Things will happen, be created and materialise in your life. LIFE Gods type of LIFE. His truth, Just as it was meant to all long! Amen! This is the power of GODS WORD, which is HIS SPOKEN WORD.
John 17:17 “Sanctify ( make holy) them through the truth: your word is truth.”
Jesus said in John 6:63 “My words are spirit and they are life!”
We know that Jesus came to bring a New way, A New Covenant. The Old Testament was a different age to the one we are in now.
I have heard so many people who don’t know the bible quote a small scripture out of the old testament that they firstly don’t understand and have perhaps taking the scripture out of context also. Why did they do that, because they didn’t know the truth. They hadn’t read the New Testament. The New Testament is where you should start when you begin reading the bible. It is the New Covenant we are in; The Covenant of LOVE, God’s mercy and grace. A covenant is a legally binding agreement. Unbreakable and everlasting. Praise God!
He is not the wrathful God people talk about who punishes anyone who doesn’t do as He says. That is so far from the TRUTH. That was the Old Testament, God is a God of Mercy as we have already seen in previous blogs and He is LOVE itself! His truth is what has got you reading this today. It is not by chance, The Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of truth has got you here. WHY? He wants you to see the truth and live in it for your benefit not his. He has given you the truth. Its all in the bible and every word that God breathed, He did for you and me. For our benefit. For us to speak out Just as God did.

Jesus said in John 6:63 “My words are spirit and they are life!”
We know in previous blogs that Jesus said “I am the way the TRUTH and the LIFE no one comes to the Father except by me” John 14:6
So we have seen that the word of God is the TRUTH! and We know in previous blogs that The Holy Spirit is the spirit of TRUTH and that He is part of the trinity. God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. Take a look at
the last supper Jesus said to His disciples the Apostles:
John 14:15-16 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him” (unless you have accepted Christ into your life you are separated from God and his spirit).

Jesus said in John 16:13 “When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth”
Jesus Christ revealed much to His disciples and not long before He was to leave this world He shared wit them that another was to come. Its was the spirit of truth, A comforter, helper, Intercessor, Standby, Counsellor, Advocate. This is part of the free gift God gave to man if you accept Christ in your heart and life. It his free gift of LOVE to YOU!
 
 
In 1 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”
 
Profitable for reproof- Re proof is designed to convince others of their having erred, in order to move them to acknowledge their mistakes and correct these.
(It basically means trying to help correct) or put on the right path.
Proverbs 3:12 “Because the one whom Jehovah loves he reproves, even as a father does a son in whom he finds pleasure.”
When you correct your child you don’t do it in a self righteous way. You don’t do so in a way where You think I’m better than you or do so to benefit you. ( unless you are the small minority of parents) Its done to protect, to guard, to enable and equip your child. This is what is meant by the term reproof regarding Gods word (his scriptures). Its always been about us and for our benefit. Never His. People are so mislead into thinking that people who love God are brain washed! Who are lost and haven’t got their own mind! Or worst still boring! Those types of people thinking that haven’t go a clue seriously! People who follow the bible have had the precious revelation knowledge that Gods word is in fact the ultimate truth. It’s a guide into life today even though it was written thousands of years ago. The bible is ALIVE, see Hebrew 4:12 and it is POWERFUL.

The Holy Spirit is a teacher, a helper a guide and part of is to reproof and correct.
Jesus said to His disciples before He was due to leave:
John 16:13-15 “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.

John 16:7-8
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter (The Holy Spirit) will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:"

The Holy Spirit doesn’t just show you when you are doing something wrong, or if you are in a a place you are not supposed to be for nothing; its all for your own benefit never HIS! He never leaves the situation open either there is always a way of restoring the situation so that you are not left out in the cold!
Gods divine Holy Word is reproof. His word is truth it came through people Gods prophets who had the Spirit of Truth working through the. It is there to corrects you and put you on the path of truth instead of being in darkness. There has been one massive deception people are under and of course unless you have read the bible and tested it out yourself. You will never know fully. Gods word is there to illuminate you to the TRUTH and if necessary correct and restore. What a wonderful Gift to have been given, yet people would rather go their own way and ignore what is best not just for this life here but your eternal well being also. That of you and yours! God wants to lead you into all righteousness.( We will study righteousness in another blog)Gods Righteousness is in right standing with him, that is free from sin and guilt. That is redeemed from the curse of the law and that is you are forgiven and free to love and worship him in Sprit and in truth should you wish to accept His free gift of Love. Its all about accepting the Truth and walking in it.
Question is are you going to accept Gods free Gift of LOVE or you going to walk on by thinking you know better?


Are you ready for the truth?
 
We will continue with 1 Corinthians 13:4-8  LOVE Protects LOVE never fails!

11/06/11 Recieve Gods gift of Love 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Continued!

God Bless you this beautiful week. How have you been? I trust you are well.
This is a beautiful season, we are just about to go into summer where the flowers are in full bloom. We should see our lives like this when you find Christ and get to know him and the truth. When you accept Jesus into your life you become new again, Re born, the former things pass away. You may be in the same physical body as you were before but the greatest miracle of all time has just occurred if you have accepted Christ. Your spirit has been awakened to the spirit of God. Gods spirit now lives in you helping you, guiding you into all truth. This is what God has had planned for your life all along! When you ask Jesus into your heart and your spirit is awakened you are now like a baby. Just as a baby needs milk so does your spirit need food. Gods bible and his divine truth is the food that will make you grow strong! Same goes for a seed that will eventually become a flower. You have to plant that seed in good soil. The soil must be healthy otherwise it may have no chance of growing. How can a flower grow or bloom when there is bad soil? There could be weeds that choke the seed before it starts to sprout out or the flower could grow but become disfigured, not formed the way it was supposed to and not live the life span it was supposed to have either. So a flower needs good strong soil, Then you water the seed ( give it food) give it light, then it grows. Its becomes strong and just at the right season it blooms full, strong ready for the bees to take its pollen and produce honey. You may have been preparing for this stage for a long time. The flower may have had to bloom many summers before but never reached that full stage. When you have Christ in your life.. Our lives change. We change and instead of being disfigured ( via life’s hurts) or choked out by weeds we are able to bloom into who we were supposed to be. A beautiful, colourful, fragrant, strong and healthy flower. Get to know Christ, No weeds allowed where He is concerned and the good thing is this; Even if you are a flower choked out with many weeds once you enter into Gods kingdom one by one they drop off until you are free from all the tangled mess, weeds steal your nutrients and your food.. Jesus frees you from all those sorts of things. There is no need for anything to be zapping your life of nutrients, your energy, your life. Jesus freed all who came to Him.. He is still doing it today. Scriptures shares: “ Who the son sets free is free indeed“
 
Today we were going to continue with our study of 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 are going to look at “Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth”
 
We have learnt what love is, we have seen many descriptions of this in previous blogs. We also know that God is talking about walking in His type of Love Agape. That type of love is possible with the help of the Holy Spirit who empowers and enables us to walk in this way should we choose to co operate with him. We know that Love is the most powerful force around and that it obliterates evil! And God cannot be around evil, which is why satan was cast out of heaven. We learnt in previous blogs that God is LOVE! We have learnt that God says love is not proud, Love does not boast, Love does not record wrongs and so on as in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
We know that if they ( boasting, prideful etc) are the opposite of love then in fact they are part of satans nature which is evil. Evil is a poison that continues to spread itself through anything or anyone who will allow it. It is allowed to grow in people who by choice agree to behave in an evil manner. Its allowed to spread when people turn the other cheek instead of sticking up for what is right. Its allowed to be spread when the justice system fails us. It is allowed to spread when anyone chooses to give in to darkness instead of behaving right. God is telling you that It doesn’t have to be this way and in fact the reason it has spread so much is mans choice.
How sad is this. Its so sad! No one in the right mind likes evil right? You would be surprised at the amount of people who get off on seeing a person be judged wrongly or destroyed through no fault of their own other than circumstances beyond their control. You would be surprised how many people would allow evil to continue and watch it destroy innocent people rather than get involved themselves in order to stop it. Some people just don’t care, others can’t be bothered and others have the mentality of “if it stays away from me then oh well“! Evil does not need to be spread the way it is being spread. And the sad things is God gave us the tools to obliterate it in the first place as we have seen in previous blogs.
What would you class as evil? Before I knew the truth I would class a murderer evil. I would scale it like that. When in actual fact evil actions or intent can be much simpler than that. Would you say that screaming at someone for cutting you off in the road is bad? Or Good? Or how about giving up your place in the queue at the supermarket to someone who has less than you. Is that Bad or good? God notices these types of things as we already know, God sees all things and even knows the purposes of all men’s hearts. See previous blog. The smaller things matter just as much as the larger type things people do.
We have good and bad in the world. Good people and bad people, Good ground- bad ground, Good circumstances- bad circumstances. But what do you operate in? Do you enjoy seeing evil spread and causing problems for people or are you someone who rejoices in the truth?
 
 
1 Corinthians 13:6 “ Loves does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth”
Jesus came into the world to free us from evil. To bring us into the light.
John 1:9 “ There it was the true light coming into the world that illumines every person”
That must have meant we were in darkness? We know this via other messages on the blog see genesis 3 . We know that God no longer wants us separated from him and sent Jesus Christ His son into the world to save us from the curse which was brought about through sin. John 3:16
Jesus came to deliver us from the control and the dominion of darkness Colossians 1:13.
We have learnt that satan is ruling the air and walks the earth influencing as many people as he can. See Ephesians 2:2 please read it, it may just save your life!. We know that the devil is "a liar and the father of lies", "there is no truth in him" John 8:44 and John 10:10
We have seen his ultimate goal is to keep people from finding out the truth and accepting it and especially accepting Gods free gift of love. His free gift of love is eternal life through Christ Romans 10:9-10. But God didn’t stop at that, He saw past our eternal well being and wanted us to be well, in control and happy down here also. He gave all believers the Holy Spirit and his Gifts Galatans 5:22
The Holy Spirit is "the Spirit of truth" John 14:17, 15:26
Jesus was sent back to free us from darkness and the deception operating in this present age.
Acts 26:18 “to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.”
Jesus its says in Galatians 1:4 “who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father”
He walked the earth so you could be free from the control of darkness. Hmm Control? If Gods word says it then you can bet it’s the truth and its exactly as it is. We will see this now:
Lets take a look at a few scriptures here:
All Gods words are true please read: Titus 1:2 and Hebrews 6:1
God's word is truth as said in John 17:17 “ Sanctify (cleanse and purify us) them with your word for your word is truth” also see Psalms 199:160 and 1 Peter 1:22

Why does God want us to walk in His truth? Is it for His benefit? No its for our own benefit. It will cleanse us, purify us from all the poison that has been flying around this world through sin.
Gods word says "The truth will set you free" John 8:32
Free from what? The curse the world has been put under. As we have seen previously in other blogs.
God desires truth in us. He wants us to "walk continually in his truth" Psalm 26:3; see Psalm 86:11. God desires truth in our inner parts Psalm 51:6. He wants us to choose the way of truth Psalm 119:30
Jesus Christ is "the truth" “ I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father except by me"John 14:6. And The Holy Spirit is "the Spirit of truth" John 14:17, 15:26
We know God is a spirit; we have seen this in previous blogs.
Let us look at this scripture which says “God is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” John 4:24
Anyone who has not accepted Jesus Christ in their life has their spirit separated to God and therefore will not be able to love him and commune with him. (you may prayer to him but how do you know he hears you?)
And if a person delights in the evilness of this age doing the bad things the world likes then they too are not in the truth. You must think about this.
God's words are not just temporary truths, applicable only to the times in which Scripture was written, as some have asserted. They are eternal. They are always true. "Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens" Psalm 119:89 "The word of our God stands forever." Isaiah 40:8 Jesus said, "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away" Matthew 24:35. God does not change, and his truth does not change.
Your Heavenly father wants all men "to come to a knowledge of the truth" see 1 Timothy 2:4
Loving one another is walking in the truth it is so important, lets look at the Epistles of John. John a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ wrote this whilst being divinely inspired ( working in the spirit of God)
1 John 3:11-18 but we will pick it up at verse 8 onwards:

“He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work. ( free us from the curse and sin nature we were born into) No one who is born of God ( accepts Christ into their heart) will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.
Love One Another
This is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another. Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother's were righteous. Do not be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, That is how serious walking in love is. Anyone who hates his brother s a murderer!
When Jesus was set upon and betrayed and the people who did so delighted in evil.  “ loves does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth”   They couldnt stand in the truth, have the truth near them or taught to them because it exposed them for who they were and they were not willing to change or accept that they had it wrong. Instead they delighted in sowing evil. They delighted in doing their fathers work ( the devil) and tried to kill Jesus not knowing that in fact them putting him on the cross sinless was exactly what was going to free billions of people from the evil that they delighted in. Jesus is now alive risen and hold all authority over evil. Praise God!

Genesis  50:20     Lets look at the story of Joseph.
Joseph was born to Jacob and Rachel. He was his father's eleventh son. As a boy, Joseph received an elegant coat from his father. He also dreamed that the sun, moon, and eleven stars bowed down before him, which indicated that some day Joseph's family members would bow down before him.
Joseph was betrayed by his own brothers and left to die in a hole in the ground. All because they were jealous of him because He was different to them. He had dreams, dreams where he fore sore future events. ( they were of God) and His Father loved him very much. He was left to die and had his life stolen away from him. He was found and bought into slavery and had a life of terrible suffering in prison all the while he never thought bad of God and stayed righteous. I love this story so much because Joseph ended up being positioned in the right place by God. He was in Egypt and the Pharaoh was having dreams that he could not understand. Joseph was able to interpret the dreams to the letter. Unlike the magicians who were not of the truth; Long story short Joseph ended up in a position of influence and in charge of Egypt’s food stores. There was a great famine just as Joseph had dreamt and His brothers came to Egypt from Israel to get help.
Joseph disguised his identity, held one of his brothers hostage in prison, and demanded that the rest of them bring their youngest brother Benjamin to Egypt. Joseph also put his brothers' money back in their sacks of grain. When they returned Joseph revealed his identity and brought his father Jacob to live in Egypt. After Jacob died, Joseph's brothers wondered if he would hold a grudge against them, but Joseph replied, "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good, to preserve many lives"

Delighting in evil is not of your creator and maker. Here are a few scriptures on the subject of evil:

Romans 12:21 “Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good“.

Psalm 34:12-22 “You must do these things to enjoy life and have many happy days. You must not say evil things, and you must not tell lies. Stop doing evil and do good. Look for peace and work for it. The Lord sees the good people and listens to their prayers. But the Lord is against those who do evil; he makes the world forget them. The Lord hears good people when they cry out to him, and he saves them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the broken hearted, and he saves those whose spirits have been crushed. People who do what is right may have many problems, but the Lord will solve them all. He will protect their very bones; not one of them will be broken. Evil will kill the wicked; those who hate good people will be judged guilty. But the Lord saves his servants' lives; no one who trusts him will be judged guilty.
These are harsh realities but they are the truth. Whether you like it or not. Its doesnt matter whether you believe it or not either. Its doesnt alter the truth. The truth stands forever.

Scripture says this:
"The Son of Man [Jesus] will send out his angels and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father" Matthew 13:41-43.
God does not want this for anyone. Satan does though! This is prophecy at what will happen when Jesus Christ returns. This will be after every man and women has heard the Gospel of Christ and either accepts or rejects it. Matthew 13:41-43 is a reality that some people have tried to supress, ignore or laugh at for 4000 years! It really is no laughing matter, However Gods gift of Love sure is. You'll laugh with Uncontrolable joy the rest of your days. You should try it!


How do I do those things? how is it possible to change to stop sowing evil which to people are minor silly things but in fact they bread more of satans nature into man and the world? Jesus Christ paid the price so that you could receive Gods gifts of love. The Holy Spirit, Gods word and His truth will help you. Would you rather stay in evil in satan’s kingdom or come into the light where you can be free? God loves us all the same no matter wat you have done or ever could do. He wishes for us all to be with him. And to walk in His ways here on earth. You have a choice. Its called freewill!

Scripture tells us, over and over, to love good and hate evil Let see here:

Amos 5:15. "Hate what is evil; cling to what is good"

Romans 12:9"Turn from evil and do good"

Psalm 34:14 "Stop doing wrong, learn to do right"

Isaiah 1:16 "Let those who love the Lord hate evil" Psalm 97:10

"To fear the Lord is to hate evil" Proverbs 8:13

We should be "eager to do what is good" Titus 2:14.
It tells us to avoid every kind of evil. "I will have nothing to do with evil" Psalm 101:4.
"Fear the Lord and shun evil" Proverbs 3:7
"Do not set foot on the path of the wicked, or walk in the way of evil men. Avoid it, do not travel on it" Proverbs 4:14
"Turn from your evil ways" 2 Kings 17:13
"Turn now, each of you, from your evil ways and your evil practices" Jeremiah 25:5
God cannot tolerate evil. "Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrong" Habakkuk 1:13   God is pure love He cannot look upon evil.

It is important to God, who is supreme above all things in heaven and on the earth! Who created every star, solar system, every constillation! It is also for our own benefit no just short term but Long term eternally!

Instead we are to rejoice in the truth! 1 Corinthians 13:6
The bible is the truth, Gods words are spirit and they are Life. Choose life! As seen in Deuteronomy 32

Love rejoices with the truth that God is personal. Jesus said, "I am the truth." John 14:6

We can rejoice that Christ is the truth, for he shows us the reality of human life that is pure in heart - sincere, unsullied by evil, full of integrity. We can rejoice with the truth of his life. There is something to rejoice about - we need not be cynical or despairing of life, of goodness, of truth.
Love rejoices with the good news that Jesus has triumphed over evil on the Cross. We can rejoice that if he is victorious over evil we can share in that victory with him. Jesus came to save us from evil. We cannot delight in evil and rejoice with the truth. We have to choose between the two. That choice is an act of faith, a decision that is critical for our lives. Christ can take men or women at their worst, steeped in wickedness and sin, and still deliver them from evil. That is why we can rejoice with the truth of the Gospel.
Love acts on the power of the truth that is in Jesus to change lives. Love does not delight in other people's failings, but rejoices with the truth that saves us. Love is the grace of God that reaches out to us in Jesus. When we receive him, and live with him, and are empowered by his Spirit, we have his truth within us. That gift of love is cause for rejoicing that is the greatest gift you will ever be given. When you receive his gift of love you will be rejoicing in the truth and you will no longer be in darkness but in the light.
 
Philippians 4:4 “Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice! “

Psalms 5:11 “But let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits.”

1 Chronicles 16:31 “Let the heavens be glad and let the earth rejoice; and let men say among the nations, The Lord reigns!”

1 Thessalonians 5:16 “Be happy [in your faith] and rejoice and be glad-hearted continually (always).”

Habakkuk 3:18 “Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the [victorious] God of my salvation!”
 
Psalm 118:24 “This is the day which the Lord has brought about; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
What a great confession! Say this Psalm 118 daily for the next three months. See how your life is after that! Things will be very different!
 
This has been another sensitive subject to talk about “love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth” .
Will you stay in darkness if you haven’t accepted Jesus into your heart? The scriptures are truth. One way to find out is to study and apply them in your life yourself. God will never ever let you down. His words are Truth and Jesus came to set you free from darkness into all truth.
Do you want to be free from evil and rejoice in truth. Now is the time to call out to your heavenly Father. Ask Jesus into your heart.
Say this prayer:

“Jesus Christ, I pray in line with Romans 10:9 I believe that you are raised from the dead, thank you for dying on the cross for me and saving me from my sins, Forgive me. I believe you are my Lord and savior. Come into my heart, Cleanse me and guide me into all truth, Help me and Change me to who am I supposed to be for your Glory Father, Help me be a blessing to many In Jesus Christ Holy Name Amen”

If you have said that prayer you a have now entered into the Kingdom of God. You are His child now. He loves you and wants you to grow in His truth, To see all truth and to walk and live in truth. There is nothing greater. There is no other truth. You can now rejoice in His truth forever. God bless you.
Loves Living Word Ministries UK would love to hear from you.

If you have any questions or wish to discuss anything please contact Loves Living Word Ministries UK via email at the bottom of this blog.

For others who haven’t said the prayer the question is:

Are you ready for the truth?
 
Have a blessed week.
Jesus loves you, he desires you live and walk in his light. Be of the light, get away from darkness the opportunity has been given.
 
We will pick up with 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 next week stay blessed.

04/06/2011 A short message this week. Worry or fear- scripture support.

God bless you this wonderful week in Jesus Christ Name. Hope you have had a blessed week and have been enjoying our study on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
The weeks are flying by and we are now in JUNE! Lets hope us in the UK have a lovely bit of hot weather for a change!
When things don’t appear to be going your way, hold on out in Faith in what God’s promises are. He is faithful scripture says and will do as He says. Sometimes it is a test of will on whether we grow weary and faint in our walk here on earth. There are circumstances that set and rise against us. Having God in the midst of you is literally what will keep you from falling and growing faint. So make sure you are topped up with Gods word in your spirit so when situations arise and believe me they will, you are armed and ready. In Ephesians 6 it shows you how to put on the full armour of God to enable you. This really does help you when all chaos is breaking loose in your life. Important thing is not to loose heart, to keep on with what God has shared with you and you will pull through. “For greater is He that is in you than he that is in he world” as it says in 1 John 4:4
 
Here are some great scriptures to speak out and meditate on when you are worried or loosing heart! Fear is the opposite of love so saying these scriptures will help you defeat this in your life.
 
Rom 12:21- I am the body of Christ and satan has no power over me. I overcome evil with good.

1 John 4:4- Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.

Psalms 23:4- I will fear no evil, for you are with me Lord, Your Word and Your Spirit comfort me.

Isaiah 54:14- I am far from oppression and fear does not come near me.

Psalm 1:3- Whatsoever I do shall prosper for I am like a tree planted by rivers of water.

Gal. 1:4- You have delivered me from the evils of this world, for it is Your will.

Psalm 91:10- No evil shall befall me, neither shall any plague come near my dwelling.

Psalm 91:11- For You have given Your angels charge over me, and they keep me in all my ways.

Prov 12:28- In my pathway is life and there is no death.

James 1:25- I am a doer of the Word of God and I am blessed in my deeds.

Eph. 6:16- I take the shield of faith, and stop everything the enemy brings against me.

Gal 3:13- Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law, I forbid sickness to come upon me.

Rev 12:11- I overcome by the blood of Jesus and the word of my testimony.

James 4:7- The devil flees from me because I resist him in Jesus’ Name.

Psalm119:89- The word of God is forever settled in heaven.

Isaiah 54:13- Great is the peace of my children for they are taught of the Lord.
 
 
 
Being taught of the Lord really will set you up when things are falling around you be one of those children not subject to fear, loosing heart and becoming weary. This is all Loves Living Word Ministries  will bring this week. The scriptures given are enough to meditate on. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand them. He is waiting to show you. He loves you, Jesus Loves you, Your heavenly Father loves you. Say these scriptures three times a day morning, n
oon and night. If you can say them more often great! Try get into a habit of doing this. It really will change you life forever. You will find there will be no room for worry even when all is breaking loose on you. Instead you will have Gods supernatural peace. This is what He desires all his children to have. How lucky are we!
Be Blessed this week, I trust the Holy Spirit has helped you over the last few months with the messages given. And they have brought much peace into your life. Its by and through Him (Jesus) that we can really do all things. He is our Rock, Our Salvation whom shall we fear!
We will continue with 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 next week “Loves does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth”
This will be very interesting!
