11/12/2011 ENDURANCE!!!!! Continuation of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love Always Endures

Hello and God bless you this wonderful time in Jesus Christ. Loves Living Word Ministries  has been busy. Helping people who are afflicted with demonic activity. Showing them that Our Lord and savior Jesus Christ came back to save all who came to from the torment and whiles of the evil one. Praise God He is faithful.. I know what it is like to have been tormented and harassed by demonic influences and activity. And more so when you are in Ministry and involved in that sort of deliverance. The Lord has prepared Loves Living Word Ministry well in this field. We have not arrived yet nor will we till we meet our Heavenly Father face to face and be with Him forever. Until then Loves Living Word Ministries  is excited and thankful for being able to share the Love of Christ Jesus and show people the Truth in His word and see it changed and applied to their lives. Jesus transforms brokenness, despair, people with no way out with by His supernatural Love, Peace, Joy, Favor-Grace.
Once they were bound but Jesus set them free.
He came so that all could be free and who the Son set free is free indeed just as the bible says in JOHN 8:36 Amen.
So give Him your love, talk to him.. He is waiting if you haven’t with open arms saying I never left your side as the bible states. I was just waiting for you to call to me. Jeremiah 3:33 says “Call to me and I will answer thee and I will show you GREAT and MIGHTY things” He loves you so much. Its about time people accepted His love and gifts without missing out or as sad as it is contributing to the agenda of the evil one. We have talked about Love, it is a huge subject and study. We have only scratched the surface because God is the infinite God who is love as we have seen in previous blogs. I suggest you do a personal study on Love in the bible and it will open so much up for you and blow your intellect apart to what you thought about the word love meant to an expansion and revelation that is no other than supernatural from the Holy Spirit direct to you; His child. His precious beautiful child. Who lives in if you invited him by Christ Jesus and only him.


 So we are near the end of the study of 1 Corinthians’ 13:4-8

It says in the bible LOVE covers a multitude of SINS… that is how powerful Love is… lets look at this.. In bit more detail.
The Holy Spirit has emphasized how important it is for people to operate the way God does.. The way Jesus does and the way the Holy Ghost does. That is in LOVE. This is His being,.. His nature, His Character, His attributes.
Now I understand that this is difficult at times. How can I say that? I know because I walk in LOVE more than most and I still slip when pushed to my limit at this point in time and miss it too. It doesn’t matter to much if you have missed it or how much you were pushed to miss it. If you ask God to forgive you and hold no offense and apologies even if you weren’t in the wrong to the other party.
You are free… LOVE covers a multitude of Sins.. Take the experience and learn from it. See the strategies of the dark one operating through others and you at times and make sure you get on your knees to God and thank Him that you have been shown something important. That the part of you that got upset or pushed to the limits ask Him to strengthen you in that area. Ask the Lord if you walked into a trap set up by the dark one who was using people who weren’t aware they were even being used to give you increased wisdom and Discernment… YOU cant go wrong!! What ever your situation or experience… It’s a win-win situation because of Gods love. The love that covers a multitude of sins.. Its covers every sin. ALL. As long as you repent and turn away from it. If you find that difficult ask the Lord to help you. He’s waiting and HE will do it for you. This is part of His gifts of Grace and LOVE.

Lets look at our Study we almost at the end of this powerful and important scripture.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 it says 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."
This is the New International Version we have studied. But Lets take a look at the New King James Version because it explains things a bit better:
"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails."

LOVE ENDURES ALL THINGS/ALWAYS PERSEVERES.
Powerful statement and confession. Start confessing that today.
Lets take a look at what endurance means… In the English dictionary it says:

1. To carry on through, despite hardships; Picture this: endure an Arctic winter as an example. Living or walking in adverse conditions.


2. To bear with tolerance: To put up with and tolerate even in gritted teeth at times. The Lord will sustain you. Ask Him to help you get through, He will. Don’t try work it out. I know because I have tore my hair not knowing fully why its happening and that stole a part of my peace and gave a window for the dark one to attack me. The Lord will show you after the event and when that comes great peace and revelation follows. You have grown. You are more able and even more powerful to Gods kingdom now If you have the right heart and have not grown to weary and given up! Don’t give up there no time to give up if you have Jesus in your heart/spirit then you are more than a conqueror it says and you can endure doing what ever you are faced with in this life. Nothing is impossible to God is says in the bible NOTHING. Only believe. Hold fast in Faith in Him, His word ,His promises and more importantly His love for you and the power that it holds. It will defeat anything in your path that is NOT from Your Father in heaven. It will sustain you if it is part of being refined in the fiery furnace as it says in the bible ( purifying you, getting rid of any bronze and leaving just pure Gold in your whole life and being)

3. To continue in existence; last: Like a building that lasts doesn’t break down. Strong firm set in concrete!!!! Wind may rage around you, violent wind as said in Isaiah 54. A strong violent tempest, a storm. But it cant knock you down and keep you there!!!! Its ok to be knocked down a little that’s normal its whether you stay there, give up or you use that storm as a mighty step into your NEW season and growth in Christ Jesus.
Get up…reach to me the Lord says release all that pains you and watch my spirit pour out from you and around you. Hold on my child. I am with you. I will never leave you nor forsake you. My mercy endures forever. Amen.

Jesus gave us all authority to do as He did and speak to any storm or strong wind trying to rage in your life. Speak to it in faith in Jesus Christ name and watch it go.. Sometimes it will stop instantly… and on the odd occasion it takes a little bit longer. If that is the case do not waiver. Or think you have done wrong or it doesn’t work. IT DOES>>> HOLD FAST TO THE CONFESSION OF YOUR FAITH!.


 Endure means:  To suffer patiently without yielding. Without giving in, giving up, becoming too overwhelmed or overtaken. Just know that it will come to an end. The Lord is doing much in the background and you are being refined and built as a mighty warrior for His Kingdom and end time Ministry. Its says many faint and grow weary in the bible. I can understand this. But don’t stay there. You have the tools and power in you that raised Jesus Christ from the dead. You can endure. LOVE endures ALL things. That covers everything that goes on. No matter what, ALL means all. Just because others haven’t gone through it doesn’t mean that you are in the wrong. If Jesus meant just a few select things we may be faced with then He wouldn’t have said ALL things. ALL covers a broad and long spectrum. Just know that if you are walking right and you are in God word; He will sustain and bring you through in more VICTORY than you can imagine. Both in this world and in your spiritual walk and life: but also for the greater glory His Kingdom. It may not even be shown for a while but boy does The Lord see the future. He’s the only one who does correctly and He has your back and will be using what ever you were faced with to help His children and you now or in the future.
Get great comfort from this… If you are a Christian you are to live a life for Him first. We are here for just a small pin prick in time to where you are going next. That’s with Him in heavenly Glory and splendor…. No pain No suffering, No trails, No sickness, No rejection, No loneliness, No misunderstandings, No false accusations or any other thing that you have been faced with or have had to put up with! . Oh no! Just PURE LOVE. Oh Lord, How wonderful you are. You are our deliverer and our strength. Be as David was in the bible Lets look at this:

2 Samuel 22:1-51     David’s Song of Deliverance
1 And David spoke to the LORD the words of this song on the day when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul.
2 He said,
"The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
3 my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation,
my stronghold and my refuge,
my savior; you save me from violence.
4 I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies.
5 "For the waves of death encompassed me,
the torrents of destruction assailed me;
6 the cords of Sheol entangled me;
the snares of death confronted me.
7 "In my distress I called upon the LORD;
to my God I called.
From his temple he heard my voice,
and my cry came to his ears.
8 "Then the earth reeled and rocked;
the foundations of the heavens trembled
and quaked, because he was angry.
9 Smoke went up from his nostrils,
and devouring fire from his mouth;
glowing coals flamed forth from him.
10 He bowed the heavens and came down;
thick darkness was under his feet.
11 He rode on a cherub and flew;
he was seen on the wings of the wind.
12 He made darkness around him his canopy,
thick clouds, a gathering of water.
13 Out of the brightness before him
coals of fire flamed forth.
14 The LORD thundered from heaven,
and the Most High uttered his voice.
15 And he sent out arrows and scattered them;
lightning, and routed them.
16 Then the channels of the sea were seen;
the foundations of the world were laid bare,
at the rebuke of the LORD,
at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.
17 "He sent from on high, he took me;
he drew me out of many waters.
18 He rescued me from my strong enemy,
from those who hated me,
for they were too mighty for me.
19 They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
but the LORD was my support.
20 He brought me out into a broad place;
he rescued me, because he delighted in me.
21"The LORD dealt with me according to my righteousness;
according to the cleanness of my hands he rewarded me.
22 For I have kept the ways of the LORD
and have not wickedly departed from my God.
23 For all his rules were before me,
and from his statutes I did not turn aside.
24 I was blameless before him,
and I kept myself from guilt.
25 And the LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness,
according to my cleanness in his sight.
2
;6 "With the merciful you show yourself merciful;
with the blameless man you show yourself blameless
27 with the purified you deal purely,
and with the crooked you make yourself seem tortuous.
28 You save a humble people,
but your eyes are on the haughty to bring them down.
29 For you are my lamp, O LORD,
and my God lightens my darkness.
30 For by you I can run against a troop,
and by my God I can leap over a wall.
31 This God— his way is perfect;
the word of the LORD proves true;
he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.
32"For who is God, but the LORD?
And who is a rock, except our God?
33 This God is my strong refuge
and has made my way blameless.
34 He made my feet like the feet of a deer
and set me secure on the heights.
35 He trains my hands for war,
so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
36 You have given me the shield of your salvation,
and your gentleness made me great.
37 You gave a wide place for my steps under me,
and my feet did not slip;
38 I pursued my enemies and destroyed them,
and did not turn back until they were consumed.
39 I consumed them; I thrust them through, so that they did not rise;
they fell under my feet.
40 For you equipped me with strength for the battle;
you made those who rise against me sink under me.
41 You made my enemies turn their backs to me,
those who hated me, and I destroyed them.
42 They looked, but there was none to save;
they cried to the LORD, but he did not answer them.
43 I beat them fine as the dust of the earth;
I crushed them and stamped them down like the mire of the streets.
44"You delivered me from strife with my people;
you kept me as the head of the nations;
people whom I had not known served me.
45 Foreigners came cringing to me;
as soon as they heard of me, they obeyed me.
46 Foreigners lost heart
and came trembling out of their fortresses.
47 "The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock,
and exalted be my God, the rock of my salvation,
48 the God who gave me vengeance
and brought down peoples under me,
49 who brought me out from my enemies;
you exalted me above those who rose against me;
you delivered me from men of violence.
50 "For this I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations,
and sing praises to your name.
51 Great salvation he brings to his king,
and shows steadfast love to his anointed,
to David and his offspring forever."

 He worshiped God.. David sang to God… Worship is so powerful. It breaks through to the anointing of God. That anointing breaks all bondage's, all chains, all the power of darkness. Any trail, pain or anything you are facing. It may be hard to worship if you are going off your feelings. But beloved, do not look to your emotions. They can get out of control easily. Beloved, look to your God, your Father, your maker. The one who is there all the time and understands every single little thing that is going on. He is the one who will help. Its by His power and His power alone that you were saved if you accepted Jesus Christ and it is by His power and His alone that you will be sustained in all things. The Lord is Good His Mercy ( LOVE) endures forever Psalms 105:3. Pray this prayer :Colossians 1: 9-189 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;
11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy;
12 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.
13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones ( Angels) or dominions ( Angels) or principalities ( Angels) or powers.(Angels) All things were created through Him and for Him.
17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.
18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the pre-eminence. Amen.
 
Verse 17 its by Him and only HIM. Its through HIM you can endure in LOVE. His Love becoming your love. Your love mixed with His love.. Oh such a beautiful union. You are his bride. His true love. Be his. And Let Him be yours.

Endure - Think of a race… long distance that athletes train for.. Do they just one day decide I’m going to do a marathon…not train and just go for it? No? If they did that they wouldn’t last five minutes.. They would be unfit and unprepared. They would have no lasting endurance. What gives you endurance. Christ.. His love in and through you. Draw on that. His word. speak it out in prayer and faith in god. You have to do your part though. If you just sit around moaning and talking bad about your situations guess what its not going to get better. If you listen to others rather than God guess what its not going to help you. Don’t rely on anyone other than your heavenly Father they cant help you only He can sustain you. Don’t expect others to understand either unless they have been through the same thing and even then its different for them. The one you talk to is God and Him alone in Jesus name. The Holy Ghost is there waiting to help you. He is your teacher. You have to change the way you think. The way you see things. You have to become like a soldier who is not moved by what is coming at you from all directions. We do this by re-newing our mind, will and emotions to the word of God. You have to learn to keep your emotions in check. This comes in time and will only be mastered the more discernment you have and revelation in Gods word. You are doing great… keep going. Ask God for theses things and keep asking don’t stop… It will be given. You will be surprised at how He was tugging at you already and after the event how it makes sense.


Endure can mean: put up with something or somebody unpleasant; This shows that we are going to have upsets, we are going to have trails. It shows we are going to have people rise up against you, go in for the attack etc. It says we are to endure, immovable, firm, putting up with it in LOVE even if its unpleasant.
Now I can tell you from experience even if you are loving, have great patience and walk in love most of the time…. more than most. You will be tested, You will be pushed to the limits and you can and will get overwhelmed. This happens when you don’t fully understand why its all going on, that’s normal but You are an extraordinary person if you are in Christ now. You can overcome. Say that… I AM AN OVERCOMER! Don’t try and work it out, don’t condemn yourself in thinking you must have done something wrong. If you are walking in His will you haven’t. Don’t loose sight of this when its gone on for too long and you are really pushed past normal limitations. Stand firm in the knowledge that Your Father LOVES you and HIS LOVE ENDURES ALL THINGS. But also you walk in LOVE it will endure and sustain you also. Its so important. Be watchful.. Alert… vigilant. I have learnt
When you have received the revelation of the test and trail, when you have gained the knowledge and understanding of the test. When you have endured and missed it … stepping out of love for a brief moment towards another perhaps.. don’t condemn yourself, do what was stated earlier. All have fallen short of the glory of God the bible says. All.. Its ok… God loves you. Do what is right with a right heart and the Lord will bring you that peace and understanding that is needed. He see’s you heart, He see’s your patience, He sees your endurance and knows the struggle you have been under. He see’s your whole life. Others don’t… If you have been misunderstood or wrongly accused. Know that time and Gods love will straighten it out and show the truth. Don’t despair. Use the patience and peace that Jesus gave to you. Some of His wonderful and precious Gifts.Keep going in Love.. For Love and through Love.. This is the most powerful force in the whole universe. It covers a multitude of Sins… Jesus came back just for that purpose. To cover the sin that is over the world and its people. Remember we were all born into it through the first Adam. Jesus is the second Adam and He did it right. He beat temptation from the dark one under severe adverse circumstances because he knew that we couldn’t and He was beaten unrecognizably and hung on the cross for you and me. He knew He had to endure the most horrific physical, emotional and spiritual pain and suffering. He made the choice to do so for you and me. He could have backed out.. He could have give up and I am sure myriads of angels would come as a cloud and translated Him back to His father and rightful place.
But He didn’t…. He endured and put up with Sneers. false accusations. hatred, bitterness, jealousy, ridicule, torment, persecution, misunderstandings, rejections, abandonment, separation for you and for me. He endured and bore the whole weight of Sin on Himself

1 Peter 2:24"He himself bore our sins" in his body on the tree, so that we might die to those sins and live righteously. "By his wounds you have been healed." 

Jesus is the Only one who knows what you are going through. How you are feeling, How hard it has been and He is the ONLY ONE who will deliver and make your path straight. He will free you of the wind.. The tempest.. Or anything you have to endure for Loves sake. Love Endures all things. If the Lord says it endures all things then it does. Believe it…. don’t forget it. You are through and overcoming In Jesus Christ Name;.
Paul an Apostle of  The Gospel ofJesus Christ said this:

Romans 8:38-39New International Version (NIV)

38 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ”

NOTHING can separate you from the LOVE OF GOD NOTHING!


Say this out aloud… remind yourself of this.. Have it up on your wall.. If you need more than one wall have it up in every room you go to.. So when things come and you find yourself in a position that you didn’t expect. A position you don’t understand fully yet and don’t like but know that its to do with the Kingdom then you have this precious peace and promise from Paul an Apostle of the Gospel of Jesus Christ who was speaking by the Holy Spirit. NOTHING can separate you from the LOVE OF GOD NOTHING!
Paul an apostle of Christ went through tremendous perils, stresses, strains and endurance building. He did so as this was his walk and his mandate. He did so because through Gods grace and help he brought the gospel and love of Jesus Christ to the gentiles ( all other nations other than Israel). He went through all that because all of Hell tried to stop him and failed….. Praise God. Failed over and over and every victory won strengthened Paul in his walk for the kingdom. WHY? God was with HIM. No one can stand against God this is how we endure… Have Faith in God… all things are possible. As we have seen in previous Blog’s.
God is Love check out the scriptures showing this and see previous blogs.. He can do all things and love can and will endure in all things.. ALL. No exceptions.. Not “he can’t get me out of this one“ or “this is too much and too hard“. LOVE endures all things. There is no favoritism either. Jesus came for us all not just a select few. Its up to the individual person whether they accept Him or not.
God saw Paul’s Heart.. Even though in the beginning the guy was actually working for the dark side without Him realizing it. God loved Him. Jesus Loved Him. The Holy Spirit was working behind the scenes for the right perfect time to reveal Jesus To Him.
Paul loved the Lord with all his heart and was under deception against “The Way” ( Jesus Christ’s Gospel) thinking it was heresy. (Deception).. Until he had an encounter with Jesus Christ Himself. Paul was illuminated and the deception of the dark one was lifted from His eyes. He loved God so much and was so shocked that He had been deceived. Let me tell you if Paul can be deceived by the evil one.. With a heart all out for God then anyone can. I was like Paul deceived but loved God so very much!! We will do a teaching on deception. A whole different subject.
Getting back to Paul’s story after the deception was lifted.. Great distrust had been restored and all the hatred from the Pharisees who wanted Jesus dead raged. He became the Great Apostle of The Christian Church…He said this about the things he had to endure and endure He did because the Lord was with Him. The Lord sustained Him because of Paul's faith in Him and because Paul did not grow weary. He did what the Lord said and followed the Holy Spirit and no other!….
He also described in short what He endured for Christ and Gods Kingdom.
 
11 Corinthians 11:23 Are they servants of Christ? (I am out of my mind to talk like this.) I am more. I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again. 24 Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. 25 Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, 26 I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my fellow Jews, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false believers. 27 I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked. 28 Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches.
 
Jesus said “ Come to me all who are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest”


Loves Living Word Ministries  was due to finish the message off today Sunday 11/12/12 .. It has now been cut short.


One scripture:
Mathew 7:28-29 “ Everyone who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rocks. And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house yet it did not fall” 

Love ENDURES ALL THINGS....
Be blessed this new month in Christ Jesus.

Are you ready for the truth?

 

Love
