The world does not have the right opinion and attitude toward the One True God. God is absolutely supreme and majestic. Just being in His presence forces you to drop to your knees and worship Him in Awe. His very presence demands honor, respect and obedience. In His presence we are very aware of how small and powerless we really are as human beings. Just being in the presence of His love is overpowering and consuming.
In the world today, people do not have fear of the Lord. They sin and proudly mock God and the bible. They feel they are untouchable. They think they can get away with sin and crime. They flaunt their perversion and disfunction like a proud peacock. They think God hasn’t done anything to them yet so He must not care what they do. God is patient and longsuffering. He is very gracious and merciful. You may not be disciplined right away but that doesn’t mean you’re going to get away with your sin. There are consequences to sin and bad behavior. SIN BRINGS PUNISHMENT. NO ONE IS EXEMPT.
As strong and fierce as God is He at the same time expresses the definition of true love and compassion that far surpasses our ability to even understand. His love reaches to the depth of our souls and reveals who we are. We were created to long for that level of love and hunger for it. We don’t feel complete until we finally have it. We have a void an unsettled emptiness inside without the true agape love of Almighty God inside.
The world does not know what true love is. They are not able to understand the depth of it. They are not able to truly love others because you can not give away what you do not possess. If you are not a child of God you do not have His true agape love. True agape love ONLY COMES FROM THE ONE TRUE GOD. Because the world does not understand true love they do not understand God Almighty either because GOD IS TRUE LOVE.
1 John 4:8, “The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.]
1 Corinthians 2:14, “But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means.”
A person who isn’t spiritual doesn’t accept the teachings of God’s Spirit. They think God’s teachings and way of living is nonsense. They can’t understand them because a person must be spiritual to evaluate spiritual things. The spiritual person is capable of looking deeper than the surface. They are able to see the invisible things of God. They see more than their natural eyes and ears reveal to them. A non spiritual person is incapable of understanding a spiritual God. They judge and live their lives according to what they hear, see and feel. But Almighty God is a spirit. Those who know Him and love Him and express Him to others do so spiritually, not physically. Trying to explain true agape spiritual love to someone who does not have it is next to impossible.
John 4:23-24Amplified Bible (AMP), “ But a time is coming and is already here when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit [from the heart, the inner self] and in truth; for the Father seeks such people to be His worshipers. God is spirit [the Source of life, yet invisible to mankind], and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
There are different levels of love that man can experience. The highest level of Godly love is called “agape love.” Agape love is given to us as a free gift ONLY WHEN we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Without Jesus we do not have and can not obtain agape love. Psychologist will tell you there are suppose to be 7 different levels of love. But there are only four that most people are familiar with.
1. Eros-Eros is sexual or passionate love, also known as romantic love. This is a worldly passion that is expressed sexually.
2. Philo- love you have for your friends.
3. Storge- family or familial love, is a kind of philia pertaining to the love between parents and their children. Storge love tends to develop from the fondness born out of familiarity or dependency and, unlike eros or philia, is not based on our personal qualities.
4. Agape-Agape is universal love, such as the love for strangers, nature, or God. Unlike storge, it does not depend on filiation or familiarity. Agape can be defined as unselfish concern for the welfare of others.
Agape love is the love we read about in the bible. Agape love is what The One True God is and what He gives to us. Without the One True God human beings are unable to experience this level of love. This is the love that I will be focusing on and describing.
As we go through life you hear the word love used in all forms and fashions. People say I love you very easily and loosely without even knowing exactly what they are proclaiming. When we read our bible, God speaks to us, teaches, corrects, instructs and warns us from an agape level of love. When the bible says GOD IS LOVE, that means God is agape love, the highest most unconditional unselfish spiritual love there is. And it doesn’t say He has love, IT SAYS HE IS LOVE. When we express agape love to others, we are in fact expressing Almighty God to them.
That true spiritual agape love is a person called the Holy Spirit of God Himself, that comes to live and take residence inside your body, your heart, when we become born again. You are immersed and fused together with True Agape Love when you are born again. Your body becomes possessed with the spirit of God Himself. Your body is then called God’s temple. God lives inside every born again believer. True love is experienced and it is an experience and a new level of existence that words are unable to describe properly.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20, “Haven’t you yet learned that your body is the home of the Holy Spirit God gave you, and that he lives within you? Your own body does not belong to you. For God has bought you with a great price. So use every part of your body to give glory back to God because he owns it.” know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”
Once we are born again children of God, He expects us to surrender to Him completely and allow Him to love others through us, with that spiritual agape love. We train ourselves to allow God to override our negative emotions and treat others with the same compassion that God has given us. The shallow love the world has, loves those who love them. God’s love is deeper and unconditional whether we are loved back or not.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7, ” Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud, never haughty or selfish or rude. Love does not demand its own way. It is not irritable or touchy. It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong. It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever truth wins out. If you love someone, you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost. You will always believe in him, always expect the best of him, and always stand your ground in defending him.”
Make no mistake about the character and nature of Almighty God. HE IS GOOD. HE IS LOVE! If you are absolutely certain that someone is good and they love you you will always think the best of them and give them the benefit of doubt. If you are sure that God cares for you and is always doing what is best for you then you will be faithful and confident in His promises. You are committed and unshakeable. You trust them no matter what you might see hear or feel. You will not be worried, fearful, angry and complaining. You don’t care what things look like, sound like or what anyone else may say about them or your circumstances. Your trust confidence and love for them are not shaken because of what others may say. Some people are hard to love. But true love for others is not shaken even the words and actions of the unlovely.
When you understand the depth of God’s love for you and you are completely relying on God’s love in a certain circumstance, no one and no situation or circumstance can convince you that things are not going to be alright. God is ALWAYS GOOD and He ALWAYS makes everything alright. You absolutely know that your loving heavenly Father has everything all worked out for your good no matter what.
Romans 8:28, “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.”
True love causes you to HAVE UNSHAKEABLE STEADFAST FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD and His character. True agape love forces anything to the contrary away from you. Thats why True agape love separates us from the world. The world is dark and pessimistic. God is truth, light, transparent and ALWAYS THINKS THE BEST.
Psalm 145:1-21 (TLB), “I will praise you, my God and King, and bless your name each day and forever. Great is Jehovah! Greatly praise him! His greatness is beyond discovery! Let each generation tell its children what glorious things he does. I will meditate about your glory, splendor, majesty, and miracles. Your awe-inspiring deeds shall be on every tongue; I will proclaim your greatness. Everyone will tell about how good you are and sing about your righteousness. Jehovah is kind and merciful, slow to get angry, full of love. He is good to everyone, and his compassion is intertwined with everything he does. All living things shall thank you, Lord, and your people will bless you. They will talk together about the glory of your kingdom and mention examples of your power. They will tell about your miracles and about the majesty and glory of your reign. For your kingdom never ends. You rule generation after generation. The Lord lifts the fallen and those bent beneath their loads. The eyes of all mankind look up to you for help; you give them their food as they need it. You constantly satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing. The Lord is fair in everything he does and full of kindness. He is close to all who call on him sincerely. He fulfills the desires of those who reverence and trust him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them. He protects all those who love him, but destroys the wicked. I will praise the Lord and call on all men everywhere to bless his holy name forever and forever.
Exodus 34:6, “And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,”
I listen to people talk about love and as usual the world has an opinion about LOVE that is different than God’s. Love is suppose to be the center most important aspects of our lives. Our reason for existing is to love, show love and be loved. Without love we are nothing.
1 John 4:7&8, “Let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for GOD IS LOVE.”
God’s Agape love is an unconditional blood covenant agreement and choice that is made. It is a lifelong commitment that can not be broken no matter what the circumstances are. It is sacrificial in nature. The true agape love of God is expressed in giving and serving. When you have God’s love inside you, your desire is to give and protect and be as good to that person as you can possibly be. True love of God is unselfish and unconditional. It is a choice you make in your heart and mind to protect, provide, support, care and comfort someone expecting absolutely nothing in return. Just knowing they are well cared for is your only reward.
Romans 13:8-9 (AMP), “Owe nothing to anyone except to love and seek the best for one another; for he who [unselfishly] loves his neighbor has fulfilled the [essence of the] law [relating to one’s fellowman]. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not covet,” and any other commandment are summed up in this statement: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
The key to understanding this and other statements about love is to know that this agape love is not so much a matter of emotion as it is a MATTER OF COMMITMENT AND DECISION TO LOVE UNSELFISHLY WITH NO STRINGS ATTACHED. It is a decision and a choice to do things for the benefit of another person, having an unselfish concern for another and a willingness to seek the best for other believers. It is an unbreakable commitment and a decision you make, to make someone else happy without praise or selfish intentions. Your motive is to bring happiness to another even at your own expense and sacrifice.
True agape love does not seek pleasure, satisfaction and gratification for yourself but for another. Your love for that person runs so deep you are willing to sacrifice and give your own life up for them so they can live and be happy, even if you are not.
John 15:12-14(AMP) “This is My commandment, that you love and unselfishly seek the best for one another, just as I have loved you. No one has greater love [nor stronger commitment] than to lay down his own life for his friends. You are my friends if you keep on doing what I command you.”
Psalm 25:14, “Friendship with God is reserved for those who reverence him. With them alone he shares the secrets of his promises.”
Psalm 54:4, “But God is my helper. He is a friend of mine!”
Proverbs 3:32, “For such men are an abomination to the Lord, but he gives his friendship to the godly.”
God considers us HIS FRIEND and He is WELL PLEASED with us when we possess and express HIS AGAPE LOVE to Him and to others. How awesome it is to be considered a friend of Almighty God.
Luke 10:27(AMP), “ And he replied, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”
Without God Himself on the inside of us, we are unable to reach the highest level of agape love. We can only reach “philo” love. Philo love is a strong friendship. It is attached to your emotions. The problem with philo love is that emotions can change therefore voiding out your commitment and your sacrificial attitude toward another. Divorce today is very common in the world because people marry based on their emotions instead of agape love that God requires. Agape love is the only love that can withstand and defeat any trial or persecution that can come your way. Philo love can be defeated with the right opposition. Marriages based on philo love can not last long. When the trials of life happen, or when your partner is less than perfect its easy to just walk away.
When we are born again, ALL of God’s character traits are deposited on the inside of us. Thats why the bible says with God all things are possible. Because nothing can defeat agape love. Nothing is stronger or more overpowering than the full character of God Himself. We are able to love with the pure spirit of God like God intended man to live all alone. We are also able to express God’s character and personality to others as we go through our daily lives. These traits are called the fruit of the spirit of God.
Galatians 5:22&23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering (patience), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, Gentleness, and self-control. Against such there is no law.”
With these character traits on the inside of us, we now have the character of God and the ability to act like Him, talk like Him and think like Him, if we choose to. It is our responsibility to surrender to love, kindness, patience, peace, gentleness and self control. The character of God will not automatically be expressed when we are confronted with evil. WE HAVE TO CHOOSE IT and CHOOSE TO EXPRESS IT. Before we were born again with God’s spirit and character, it was impossible to express it continually and sincerely. You can temporarily put on a fake smile or pretend to be nice for a little while, but sooner or later your real self will surface. You can not genuinely give away what you don’t possess. Christians are possessed and infused by the agape love of God, therefore we are able to express that character and share the One True God with others, just like Jesus did when He was on Earth. Jesus showed us how we are to act and how possible it is to truly give agape love to those who abuse, persecute and falsely accuse us of things that we are not. When we react to life situations and the face of hate in one of these Godly character traits we are demonstrating the fruit of God’s Spirit. We are expressing God Himself when we show true agape love to others who are unlovely.
1 Corinthians 13:13, “There are three things that remain—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” (AGAPE LOVE)
John 13:35,”Your strong love for each other will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
The world of unbelievers has a twisted shallow definition of love. The world mixes sex, lust and sexual desire, and emotions together, and calls it love. The worlds definition of love is based on emotion and conditions. It is connected to the physical and something you can touch and see with your natural eyes. The world’s definition of love is all about their feelings. The world calls acts of generosity or niceness “love”. As Christians and children of God, Love is who we are. Love is not a physical act or a sexual feeling. Because of this mental and emotional insanity, it is expressed by mental and emotionally disturbed actions.
One big example of twisted, insane emotions in the world today, that is labeled “love” is the actions of homosexuals. They say they have the right to “love” whoever they want to. You do have the right to love whoever you want to, but according to the bible, you don’t have the right to marry or have sex with whoever you want to. Homosexuality is a sexual perversion. It is a twisted unnatural emotional attraction and sexual feeling for someone of the same sex. It has nothing to do with “true agape love”. God totally expects mankind to love one another. But He has absolute definite boundaries about who we have sex with. Pedafiles have the right to love children, but they don’t have the right to have sex with them. And they are labeled and ostracized from society if they reveal they even have the desire or thought to have sex with children. Having sex with children is wrong. It is wrong in God’s eyes and socially unacceptable. Having sex within your family members is also wrong and still socially unacceptable. Homosexuality has spread like wildfire across this nation. It has become “socially acceptable” under the name of love. The world has accepted this insanity as normal and nothing to be ashamed of. We have men dressing up as women and acting like women, and we have women dressing up as men and acting like men. Thats not normal or natural. Just because society says it is alright, does not make it right.
God declared the rules of life when He created mankind and He says homosexuality is wrong, and if you love Him you will obey what He says and discipline yourself and your unnatural emotions. God NEVER asks us to do something we are not capable of doing. People have the strength with Almighty God to overcome their homosexual desires if they want to. God does not ask us to do something we are unable to do.
Romans 1:25-28(NRSV), “… because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind and to things that should not be done.
Leviticus 18:22,(TLB)“Homosexuality is absolutely forbidden, for it is an enormous sin.”
Leviticus 20:13(TLB) “The penalty for homosexual acts is death to both parties. They have brought it upon themselves.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-10(TLB)”Don’t you know that those doing such things have no share in the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who live immoral lives, who are idol worshipers, adulterers or homosexuals—will have no share in his Kingdom.”
1 Timothy 1:10-11(TLB), “Yes, these laws are made to identify as sinners all who are immoral and impure: homosexuals, kidnappers, liars, and all others who do things that contradict the glorious Good News of our blessed God, whose messenger I am.”
The bible warns about the sin of homosexuality from the beginning of the book till the end. It has always been something Satan has done to destroy and pervert man. Satan has no new tricks. The same sins and temptations he did on the people 1000’s of years ago he still does today. But God keeps reminding us that it was wrong then and it is still wrong today. Almighty God and the bible have the last word about your life. Homosexuality is NOT LOVE and is just as wrong as murder and it will send you to hell. Thats God’s promise, not mine.
True love originated from God Almighty because God is true agape love. He sets the rules, boundaries and definition for what true love really is. Nothing or no one else can define love because no one else but God is TRUE LOVE. Love does not mean you put your head in the sand and disobey God’s rules and guide lines. Love does not mean you look the other way when you see others disobeying God’s life instructions. God says “if you truly love Him you will DO whatever HE SAYS” You discipline your flesh and your own desires and DO WHATEVER HE SAYS. You use the fruit of self control and tell your ungodly emotions”NO” and make the decision to obey God’s way of living. True love has actions and boundaries. If you don’t do whatever He says then you don’t really love Him. God wants us to use Jesus and the bible as our example for living, as we should. Turning a blind eye and accepting bad behavior does not make us a humble loving Christian. It makes us a weak rebellious ignorant person. To be politically correct or socially acceptable today usually puts you on the opposite side of the fence from God. The world has become corrupt. You can not judge right from wrong according to the population. You must use the words of Almighty God in the King James bible to define right from wrong. Love is strong and stands strong for the right character and principals written in the bible by God. If you don’t stand for good you’ll fall for something wrong.
John 14:15 , “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
1 John 4:8, “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”
Love disciplines and has boundaries. The same way a good parent loves their children and teaches them right from wrong is the same way Almighty God deals with Christians as His children, except on a higher more excellent level. He’s pretty strict about the way He expects His children to live and behave. He loves us no matter what because we are His, but He has a code of conduct and character that He demands from His children. God has made an unconditional commitment and blood covenant with us through Jesus Christ to love us and take care of us no matter what, IF WE COMMIT AND CHOOSE HIM AS OUR FATHER. But if we sin and disobey there are consequences and punishments. Some consequences are time out, some consequences are loosing something we like and some consequences are a spanking, There are some rebellious actions and careless consequences that can even result in death. God does not kick you out of the family when we sin and make a mistake. He corrects us. God chastens and corrects us because He loves us and knows that if we continue to make bad choices we will get hurt. He warns us not to get on the wrong path because He knows it will lead to destruction. Parents that just let their kids run wild and never disciplines them are not good parents and they are not showing their children love. Undisciplined kids will grow up rebellious and a menace to society. God is a good Father. He takes good care of His children and teaches us to make good decisions. He also will discipline us when we disobey and make bad choices. He has set boundaries for His children to live within. He expects us to learn those boundaries and obey them, even if we don’t understand them. We obey Him and His Word, JUST BECAUSE HE SAID SO. That shows our level of love, honor and respect for our Father God.
Proverbs 3:11-12, “Young man, do not resent it when God chastens and corrects you, for his punishment is proof of his love. Just as a father punishes a son he delights in to make him better, so the Lord corrects you.”
God says in His word that there is no greater love that you can have than to lay down your own life for someone. Especially if you are willing to give your life to someone who does not even like you. That is what Jesus did. He came to this world, never sinned, but allowed Himself to be beaten, crucified and killed for the sinners and unbelievers in the world who did not even like Him at the time. If you really believe that Jesus loved you enough to die for you and took your punishment for sin, you would love Him back and do whatever He asks even if you didn’t know why.
John 15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
1 John 3:16(TLB), “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
John 3:16(KJB), “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
The military does this for our country. Police officers and firemen put their lives on the line daily to keep people safe. Doctors and nurses devote their lives daily to help and save the sick and dying. Good parents watch over their children protecting them, correcting them, making sacrifices for them and are willing to give their lives to save their children. God has the same love for His children, but even greater.
Another misconception people have about God and His great love, is that their problems are so big and impossible that He can’t possibly fix it. Or you believe the lie that your disaster is all your fault and God would not possibly forgive you and help you. Wrong!! Thats exactly what He does. Of course our terrible life is a result of our own bad choices and decisions. But God says ONE GOOD DECISION of calling out to Him for help can erase the bad choices. All of a sudden you will see an answer and way out yu didn’t see before. If you don’t know how big God is and you have Him in some little box then you will never experience the greatness of His majesty. Just for your information, Earth is one of the smallest planets in our galaxy. The bible says God is SO BIG and majestic that He can measure the Heavens (thats all the planets and galaxies) in the palm of His hand.
Isaiah 40:12(NIV), “Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?”
God created this whole galaxy and universe. He created everything in it to work with absolute precision and perfection. There is absolutely nothing at all that could possibly happen in your life or after your life that God has not ALREADY made provision for. Before anything ever materialized in creation, God saw it from beginning to end. God knew you would be born at this time and He saw your whole life and made a plan and provision for every day and every circumstance. There is NOTHING God is surprised about in your life and there is NOTHING He is not willing and able to fix, even if your problems are from your own ignorance and foolishness.
Luke 1:37, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
Isaiah 59:1, “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:”
The greatness and majesty and glory of God is so very magnificent that we are not even intelligent enough as human beings to be able to express His splendor adequately. When I was a child I remember my parents telling me to do some things that made absolutely no sense to me at the time. I was a child. I had no life experience and no wisdom. I would ask them why they would say “just because I said so” and when I got older I would understand. I would obey because I loved them and respected them and knew they loved me and was somehow looking out for my best interest. I knew they were smarter than me and would never tell me to do something that was not good for me. God deserves that same level of love, honor, trust and respect from His children as well. If He says something is wrong and He doesn’t want you to do it, then don’t do it. If He says something is good for you, then do it. If you love Him, do it or don’t do it JUST BECAUSE HE SAID SO.
When we get to Heaven and are able to see the full spectrum of things and see God face to face you will then be able to see just how big God is and how small your problems were in God’s eyes. There is absolutely nothing He can not handle and fix. The bible says God sits in the Heavens and laughs at the foolishness and arrogance of His enemies because somehow they think they are able to defeat God or cause even one word He has spoken to become false.
Psalm 2:4, “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.”
Psalm 37:13, “The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming”
Proverbs 1:25-27 (KJV), “ But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.”
If you choose to have God as your Father and call out to Jesus to save you and forgive you of your sins, then God receives you, no questions asked. Like I said, God already knows the ones who are going to call out to Him and surrender their lives to Him. He has already chosen to receive you as His child. He chooses to love you, forgive you and accept you. God places you under His umbrella of protection just like any good father does for their children. Just remember along with that love comes, discipline and boundaries. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Accept the blood sacrifice He made for you. Choose to live your life by the ways of God. Surrender and discipline your will, your feelings, emotions and desires to line up with the word of God.
Because God loves you so much, He put this wonderful life plan together just for you here on Earth and in Heaven. He puts a passion and a desire in your heart. He gave you gifts and talents to make you a blessing to those around you and to the kingdom of God. The life plan He has for you far exceeds your wildest thoughts hopes and dreams. Because He loves you, all you have to do is walk in His ways and love Him back the way He loves you and the desires of your heart will happen.
Psalm 37:3-5(AMP), “Trust [rely on and have confidence] in the Lord and do good;
Dwell in the land and feed [securely] on His faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord,
And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord;
Trust in Him also and He will do it.”
Many people, even some Christians, think that if something terrible happens in their life it is God’s fault and He must be punishing them for something. Not true. Our bad choices in life causes bad things to happen. God has justified discipline that follows our bad and negative choices in life. We usually get a warning before the discipline happens. But if your rebellion continues God will allow you to go through the discipline. Asking for sincere forgiveness when you mess up or sin immediately brings Gods grace and mercy to the rescue but God knows if you are not sincere. He knows if discipline is the ONLY WAY you will learn your lesson. When you are truly sorry and ask for forgiveness it requires CHANGE. Forgiveness without change is foolishness.
When God created this world there was a blessing and a curse put in motion so we could choose which life we want to live. This removes all discrimination and puts the power to be blessed solely in your hands. Just like the law of gravity, it works the same for everyone. Choose God and His ways and the blessing will follow. Choose Satan and his ways and a curse, judgement and discipline will follow.
Deuteronomy 30:19, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:”
If you do make bad choices, God says, no worries. He can and will still help you get through any situation. He will help you get through the pain and punishment. Nothing is impossible for Him to fix. That does not mean you will be exempt from the consequences of your choices but God will help you get through your afflictions and difficulties. I mean if you can learn your lesson without discipline or punishment then so be it. But God is the judge. He knows all about you and He sees your future choices and decisions. He knows the secret things deep in your heart that you may not even be aware of yet. If you need some discipline to learn a lesson and be a better person then that is what He will do.
Hebrews 12:6(KJV), “ For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.”
Proverbs 3:12(TLB), “Young man, do not resent it when God chastens and corrects you, for his punishment is proof of his love. Just as a father punishes a son he delights in to make him better, so the Lord corrects you.”
Because He loves you, Almighty God is going to take good care of you if you surrender to Him, no matter what, but still help you learn a life lesson. Thats what family does for one another. That is what our loving Father does for His children. Love and forgiveness does not exempt you from the consequences of bad choices and decisions. Love says, suffering a little is what teaches us and helps us to choose to discipline ourselves. We spank our children, put them in time out, ground them when they disobey so that the next time they have the thought to disobey they will choose not to, so they can avoid punishment. As they mature and grow in wisdom they will respect your discipline and understand why it was necessary. God promises to walk you “through the fire”. “Through the valley of the shadow of death” , so you will see bad things around you, you might have to walk through an unpleasant circumstance, but it won’t hurt you and defeat you, if you keep trusting in Him and following His instructions. It does not mean God does not love you, it means HE DOES LOVE YOU. You can trust Him to shield you and keep you safe. You’ve heard it said, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” It’s true.
I learn more about the depth of God’s love for me as I read my bible. I learned how true agape love reacts to bad situations and evil people. I learned that God loves me far greater than I am even able to comprehend. I also learned how much He loves me when I make a mistake or sin. He forgives me and comforts me and gives me another chance, just like I do my kids when they mess up. I don’t stop loving them or kick them out of the family. I feel like I’m a super parent and grandparent; love my children with all my heart and soul. I have agape love for them and would in an instant lay my life down for any of them. I learned God loves me and all His children even greater than that. Learning about this great Godly agape love is what gave me peace about the end of the world, the rapture and the tribulation. When I hear some the crazy things that people say, even some pastors, I know they just don’t understand God and the depths of His great love for His children.
God is not going to sneak up on His children. God is NOT going to let evil sneak up on you either. God speaks to His children constantly. He is always warning, instructing, teaching and directing if you are listening and following His voice YOU WILL BE FINE. He has a lot of instructions already written in the bible. So if you’ll read your bible everyday you will learn much about what God expects from you. God loves you so much He will always warn you and prepare you for things that may happen in the future so you can be prepared for them, like any good Father would do for their children.
The world does not think THE ONE TRUE GOD speaks to people today because they don’t hear Him talking to them. God talks to His children all day, but He is ONLY OBLIGATED to take care of HIS CHILDREN. What kind of loving God and Father would that be to sit back and watch His children harmed and destroyed by evil and wickedness? God is talking to His children. If you are a Christian and you are not hearing God speak, you need to separate yourself from sin and listen. Love protects and warns. Because God is love HE IS TALKING TO HIS CHILDREN warning us of things to come and prepare for.
John 10:26-27, “But you don’t believe me because you are not part of my flock. My sheep recognize my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
God has a beautiful peaceful place for all of His children to go to be protected from the evils to come. He has provision, peace and happiness right here on Earth for you today. The world does not know God therefore they can not hear God. Just because you have not heard God does not mean He is not talking.
God is instructing all His children all the time and now He is telling us to prepare to meet Jesus face to face TODAY and get your soul prepared for the rapture of the church. God warning you and preparing to rapture you out of here to safety is yet another act of His endless LOVE. Get the sin out of your life and go out into the world and tell as many people as you can about Jesus so they can have the chance to prepare for the rapture as well. Being left behind to suffer through the tribulation will be devastating.
Because God loves you, He is talking to all His children and He is telling all of us the same thing. God loves ALL HIS CHILDREN the same. He does not pick and choose who to bless and who to warn about dangerous situations. If He’s not talking to you it’s because you are not His or you have unconfessed sin in your life. Sin causes static interference when God is trying to communicate with us. You confess your sin and totally surrender your attention to God and you will hear Him speaking to you loud and clear. THE ONE TRUE GOD only speaks to HIS CHILDREN(Christians and Jews). If you have not accepted Jesus as Savior then you are NOT ONE OF GOD’S KID’S, and you will not hear Him talking. God has not obligated Himself to take care of the sinners and the rebellious ones in the world. God does not come down and save the world from destruction because He will not go against the free will of man. But to the ones who has called out to Him and chosen to be part of God’s family and has surrendered their lives to Him HE DOES PROTECT AND HELP. He empowers us with everything the kingdom of God has t offer. His love will not let Him do anything but love and protect you. He has, obligated and committed Himself and formed a blood contract to unconditionally care for Christians and Jews. God never breaks covenant and contract. If it’s signed sealed and delivered by the blood of Jesus HE WILL DO IT.
Because God loves HIS CHILDREN so much, we don’t have to be worried or fearful about the future. God knows the world is filled with violence, terror and hate but He also knows how to keep you safe through it all. God says He will always reveal to His children what He is doing and when He will do it. God does nothing until He speaks it first and reveals it to someone. He speaks it, then He does it. He speaks to one of His children and He has one of His children speak it to the world.
Amos 3:7. “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealed His secret unto His servants the prophets.”
God did not say He would reveal things to the world or to Satan. God reveals His secrets to His children and gives us enough information and instructions so we can prepare and protect ourselves from the danger and destruction of Satan. Thats one of the awesome privileges of being a child of God. Those who reject God does not have that privilege. Danger, death and destruction does not come from God, IT COMES FROM SATAN. The world is caught by surprise by it because they are not hearing God warn them. God is life and love. Satan is death and hate. The apocalypse and the tribulation is caused from the work of Satan, NOT GOD. The rapture of the church, is an act of God. The rapture is a wonderful event from God of Him saving His Children from the annihilating work of Satan. The rapture happens for Christians, because of God’s love for His children. The tribulation and apocalypse happens to the world from the death and hate of the antichrist and sinners in the world.
Matthew 24:36 says, “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”
If you don’t know the Father, then you will not have the privilege of sitting in on His conversations and family meetings. Only God knows the exact day and hour of the rapture. Heaven has it’s own calendar and clock. God is going by His clock and calendar in Heaven, not the world’s. God is willing to reveal a time to us that is true to everyone at the same time. In fact He said there were things He was keeping secret from the world till the end, then all things would be revealed to HIS CHILDREN that had been kept secret.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Mark 4:22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.
Luke 8:17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
Like I said earlier, when Jesus was crucified and rose from the dead, He sat at the right hand of Almighty God in Heaven. The Holy Spirit of God was then sent to live inside EVERY SINGLE CHRISTIAN here on Earth that accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are not keeping secrets from one another in Heaven. All the Godhead knows when the rapture is going to happen. GOD IN YOU KNOWS WHEN THE RAPTURE IS GOING TO HAPPEN. All the Godhead are ONE!! Christians are One with God. The issue is NO ONE IN HEAVEN SPEAKS UNTIL GOD SAYS SO. Then they ONLY SAY WHAT GOD TELLS THEM TO SAY. That doesn’t mean they don’t know. When the time is right, the Holy Spirit of God that lives on the inside of every Christian will reveal the time of the rapture to whoever is listening, expecting and wanting to know. That is one of the jobs of the Holy Spirit; to show God’s children “things to come”. (John 16:13)
Jesus also told the disciples there were many things He wanted to tell them but He couldn’t because God had not given Him permission and because Jesus said they would not even be able to handle it at that time. If you had tried to explain technology, cell phones, television, satellite and nuclear energy to the people in Jesus’ Day, they would have thought He was crazy and a lunatic. They were not smart enough to understand the process at all. God had to hold some things secret until the knowledge and wisdom of the world was ready to accept it. Even now there are so many things that God has in store for us in Heaven that we can not even imagine until we actually get there and see it.
When Jesus walked the Earth, He had God in Him and upon Him just like Christians do today. But Jesus only spoke what God told Him to. The Spirit of God reveals truth to us as we need to know it and when we are able to understand it.
John 12:49-50(KJV) , “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.”
John 16:12, “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.”
Luke 10:24, “For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”
Matthew 10:26, “Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.”
Luke 10:21, “In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.”
God loves us so very much and He has prepared a place for us in Heaven that is going to leave you in absolute awe and amazement. When Christians leave this Earth, we will live forever in that special amazing paradise with Him forever. Where is Heaven? Heaven is in a galaxy far away from here. God has not and will not allow man to reach the intelligence and technology to be able to see it until we are taken there BY HIM. This present Earth and galaxy will be destroyed and God has created a new Earth in Heaven that He will bring down to replace this destroyed Earth.
2 Peter 3:10, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”
Revelation 21:1-3, “ And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”
John 14:2-3, “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
Because God loves me, He has told me things to look for as a warning before the rapture happens. Because I love you and I am called to to a rapturewatcher and a messenger I have shared this information with you. Go to the page of this website “RAPTURE PROPHECY” to read more about it. But in short, the next prophecy to look for is the wealth and miracle anointing that is about to happen to 1000’s of GOD’S CHILDREN, When that anointing happens, God is going to reveal a more specific timeline (year and season) for the rapture. No one will know for sure what the year and season of the rapture is until God pours out His spirit upon His children and the wealth and miracle anointing happens. Trickles of the outpouring has already started but the deluge of unimaginable wealth to God’s end time chosen is coming soon. Get ready. You know what to do with it when God puts it in your hands. He has already called and revealed His plans to you. He knows the ones he can trust and who will be obedient to the call. He has an end time assignment for every one of His children.
Also keep your eyes on the Middle East. Russia and Iran are in the Middle East and they are teaming up for an evil plan. Of course Isis, Syria, North Korea all have wicked leaders and can not be trusted either.
God is good because HE IS LOVE. God wants to love you with His agape love if you will let Him. True love can not be anything but good. He has a great plan to save everyone who wants to be saved. He loves you and He will never ever reject you. He has deep unconditional love and forgives all and helps all. You can’t be too bad for God to deny you. God’s love is far greater than any evil. He is willing to adopt, forgive and bless anyone who comes before Him with a sincere heart. God loves you. He does not want to see you miss the rapture and suffer through he tribulation. BUT YOU MUST CHOOSE HIM. He never forces Himself on anyone. His love for you will not force you to love Him back, but their will be a deadly awful consequence if you reject Him and choose to follow the ways of Satan and the world. God did not create Hell for man. He created Hell for Satan and demons; but if you reject Him and follow Satan and his ways God has no other choice than to let you go there and burn with Satan.
This world will see the return of Jesus very soon. I don’t believe God is going to give us a big notice. God may only give His children a 7 day notice like He did Noah. God told me He would tell me the night before He comes. He may not tell any of His children until the night before. But He has already told us to just be ready TODAY. So we all may only have a few hours notice. When God does tell me the night before I will post it because that is my assignment from God.
Do not wait till the last minute to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. Jesus Christ was God’s greatest expression of His love for the world. Don’t take it for granted. Go to the “Jesus as Savior” page of this website and find out how you can receive the grace, mercy and forgiving agape love of Almighty God and become a child in His beautiful family.
John 3:16, “For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son. Whosoever believes on Him will have eternal life.”
God told me to tell everyone that today is the day to prepare to see Jesus face to face. Almost 7000 men women and children die in the United States every single day. You might be one of those people. No one knows when it’s their time to go. Do not put it off till you think the rapture will be happening. You do not know what day is your last here on earth, it may be today. The life and death process still goes on. Death does not cease to happen. Some people will die moments before the rapture happens. Do not wait till you hear the trumpet sounding and try to get in a quick prayer. That will not work. Accept Jesus now. NOW, TODAY IS YOUR DAY FOR SALVATION.
