When love is generated, it becomes light which is a power, an energy to heal, restore and change.
God is two things: LIGHT and LOVE. God is Light and God is Love. It’s not that He gives light or He gives love. HE IS LOVE and HE IS LIGHT. God is Love, His very essence and He is light.
In John 4:16 says, “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”
1 John 1:5 says, “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.”
St. Francis of Assisi has such a relationship with the animal kingdom because of love that they became totally his friends – the animals just became his friends, and he could relate to them. And if you don’t fear an animal, it will never hurt you because perfect love casts out fear. The strongest vibration that animals feel is FEAR, on the negative. The strongest they feel on the other side is LOVE.
See, the whole of creation responds to love because God is love. The universe is powered by love which becomes light in its out-flowing power, the whole of the world in which we live.
“Love, the last message to the church in the last days”
And apostle John had the last message to the church in these last times. There’s nothing that comes from God that does not originate in love, and it’s transmitted with light. WHEN YOUR MIND AND YOUR LIPS LOSE THE POWER TO HURT, YOU WILL GAIN ACCESS TO THE TREE OF LIFE.
“To him that overcome will I be able to make you eat of the Tree of Life.”
Prov 15:4, ” a wholesome tongue is a Tree of Life: but perverseness [in your mouth] therein is a breach in the spirit.”
This word ‘breach’ is ‘desebat’, cuts off from God stops you abiding in Him when you stop flowing in love.
A WHOLESOME TONGUE, you are transmitting the Tree of Life, but perverseness in your mouth will cause a breach in your spirit which will cut you off from God and His love going through you.
James 3:2 says, “For in many things we offend all.”
If any man offend not in word [in the things that we speak], the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.”
If you don’t offend in speech, that same man is a perfect man who is able to bridle his whole body. You see, whether we like it or not, the MOUTH is the clearest revelation of the heart of a person. You don’t need a lot of discernment. You just need to listen [to what they are saying].
The mouth is the clearest revelation of the heart in any person, because “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.”
What you are will come out through your mouth. We give ourselves away when we open up our ‘big mouths’.
“LOVE fulfills all righteousness”
You can live by either law or you can live by the promises of God – the choice is yours.
2 Peter 3:18 says, ‘But grow in grace, and in knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.’ The knowledge, this knowledge of how this New Creation Man is put on; how to fulfil out destiny and the ways of God; how to escape corruption; how to partake of the Divine Nature. God gave us back there understanding of how we could come to this earth and partake of the Divine Nature.
Jesus has given us all things in Him, everything we need to enter into our purpose, to enter into glory and light. And He has given us–the way that He has done this is–He has given us great and precious promises by which we can partake of these–GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES–through knowledge (‘epignosis’ – revelation.)
Most of what is taught in the church today is LAW. ‘IF YOU DO THIS, if you read your Bible every night, God will bless you.’ Not necessarily. You look at it–IT IS BASED IN LAW. It’s all based in law. You can live by law or you can live by the promises. The promises are Divine Principles, are laws of the Kingdom which were given on that day the foundations of this world were laid, when the sons of God shouted for joy. They entered into our heart that day. They are encoded in our spirits. We understood them clearly back then. The instructions if followed will bring us as human beings into light and glory and powerfully transform us into New Creations.
Adam understood those things. They were fresh. Adam understood those things until he sinned. Adam understood these ways of God and walked in them until the fall. Then his soul became darkened and the memory of that day receded. The knowledge which he had received slowly began to be lost, and he became just a man when he was called into the image of God. And now, we only have rare recollections of the glory, the understanding, just as occasionally a tiny bit of recollections of that day begin to seep through to us.
There are certain things prepared for us before the foundations of the earth and we cannot know them without certain things are put in place within our lives.
That’s why Paul said in 1 Cor. 2:9, “But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM.’ There are certain things prepared for us before the foundations of the earth and we cannot know them without certain things are put in place within our lives. The key to that verse is of course ‘TO THEM THAT LOVE HIM.’ You see, it’s not complicated, love fulfills all righteousness. And that’s the only thing that God requires of us–Love which fulfills all righteousness.
We need to spend time alone with God doing one thing – JUST LOVING HIM.
Love will transform you, and it will touch every atom of your being. They will be affected–healing, restoration, purification will begin to take place.
You’ll be anointed with light when you begin to love God with your mind, whole heart and soul.
When we talk about loving God, it’s not just words. We need to spend time alone with God doing one thing- and that is JUST LOVING HIM with your mind, and with feeling, with your emotions and with strength. And you need to spend time just doing that. You don’t even have to necessarily speak, although sometimes it makes it easy when you do speak. But you need to spend time just loving God, coming to Him. Because if you do that, YO U WILL COME TO THE PLACE WHERE YOUR MIND AND YOUR LIPS LOSE THE POWER TO HURT.
When you come to the place where your mind and your lips lose the power to hurt, you will come into the River of Life and you will be totally transformed.
The whole of creation is in pain and is hurting and groaning until a certain kind of person begin to rise on the face of the earth–the SONS OF GOD who have perfected LOVE.
Now you cannot understand the wonder of God’s world until you understand it’s hurt and start to be so kind to it.
Now when man sinned, creation fell. What will bring healing to the abused creation? THE SONS OF GOD WHO HAVE PERFECTED LOVE.
Unless you become perfected in love , you’re not going to go on. I don’t care how many conventions you go to, I don’t care how much all of that stuff, you will not go much further in God, because the requirement to go to that next level is in the area of which we are talking–LOVE with all of the consequent attitudes that come with it. Very simple, you know, but we make it complicated. We want some great spiritual formula for this to work. We want TO DO, DO, DO, and God says, “JUST BE, BE, BE.”
That’s why it’s so important that we are perfected in LOVE. No matter what the situation is, no matter what is happening around us, we must have the attitude of God–that is love. LOVE, you’ve got to manifest love, compassion. Love seeks the highest good for friend or foe in every circumstance, that kind of reaction, you see.
