Do you understand the operation and the nature of God's love?



It's not a selfish, self serving kind of love as the Father declared to me "the only thing that satisfy true love, is the benefit of others, which was perfectly demonstrated through the life and sacrifice of His Son, and His true disciples and followers are called to be conformed to His pattern and His standard through laid down lives. Romans 8:28-39.



To those who are complacent, stubborn and self willed, the Lord asks; How can you expect to be My bride if you don't allow Me to take you unto Myself fully ?



It's the principle of abandonment found in the covenant and intimate relationship of a marriage  -  Ephesians 5



31  For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.



 32  This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.



Jesus declared to me years ago "My greatest gift to you is oneness with Me, but you must be willing to come into agreement with My ways.”



This oneness speaks of a divine fusion taking place and can only be accomplished through a Holy Spirit baptism of fire. 



Everything in us that does not reflect His likeness, His holy love nature and image, even His character, needs to be burned out of us. 



He declared His doctrine unto those who desire to become His priestly bride in just 1 commandment  -  John 15



12  This is My commandment, That you love one another, as I have loved you.



 13  Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.



 14  You are My friends, if you do whatsoever I command you.



Are you offended by the love of God, which requires you to lay yourself down for others?

God calls His bride "The Melchizedeck priesthood, the people of His PRESENCE, of HIS POWER and of HIS GLORY, for through their surrender and obedience through yieldedness to Christ they become the living temple and habitation of God by His Spirit 1 Peter 2.



The challenge to lay down our lives for the sake of Christ is the most disliked part of His gospel and that by most His own people. 



This is a sad reality throughout the world of Christendom. 



Jesus declared to me "Most of My people are offended at the price that love requires" John 15.



I say to you that the majority of Christians today are violating the covenant requirements of Almighty God for people fail to understand and realize that He called us into agreement with himself through sacrifice, which is our reasonable service. Romans 12.



How can the body of Christ operate and function in unison and agreement unless all of it's members operates in agreement with it's HEAD ?



We are called as members of the body of Christ to learn to serve our generation and each other by being led by His Spirit through the authority of the mind of Christ. 




Psalms 50



 1  A Psalm of Asaph. The mighty God, even the LORD, has spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.



 2  Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shined.



 3  Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.



 4  He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.



 5  Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.



 6  And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.



 7  Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against you: I am God, even your God.



 8  I will not reprove you for your sacrifices or your burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.



 9  I will take no bullock out of your house, nor male goats out of your folds.



 10  For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.



 11  I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.



 12  If I were hungry, I would not tell you: for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof.



 13  Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?


 14  Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay your vows unto the most High:



 15  And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.



 16  But unto the wicked God says, What have you to do to declare my statutes, or that you should take my covenant in your mouth?



 17  Seeing you hate instruction, and cast my words behind you.



 18  When you saw a thief, then you consented with him, and have been partaker with adulterers.



 19  You give your mouth to evil, and your tongue frames deceit.


 20  You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother's son.



 21  These things have you done, and I kept silence; you thought that I was altogether such a one as yourself: but I will rebuke you, and set them in order before your eyes.



 22  Now consider this, you that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.



 23  Whoever offers praise glorifies Me: and to him that orders his conduct aright will I show the salvation of God.



Mat 9:37 Then said He unto His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few.





Because it cost the sacrifice of self to serve Him in the way and love of His Spirit. 

We should all be growing daily in the love of God. 


Notice in life when man can selfishly benefit he is quick to stand first in the que but as soon as God calls man to lay himself down for the benefit of others, he cringes in dissatisfaction, offense and disappointment. 



You shall see all the more who the true disciples and followers of Christ are in the coming days.



John 13: 34  A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.



 35  By this shall all men know that you are My disciples, if you have love one to another. 

How exactly did He demonstrate the GOD-KIND OF LOVE in himself?



John 15:13  Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

1 Thessalonians 4:9  But regarding brotherly love, you do not need that I write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another. 



2Th 1:3 We are bound to thank God always for you, my brothers, as it is right, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of each one of you abounds toward one another; 



1Jn 3:11 For this is the message that you have heard from [the] beginning, that we should love one another; 



1Jn 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and everyone who loves has been born of God, and knows God.



Christ's way is the way of sacrifice by which we impact eternity. 



Mat 16:24 Then said Jesus unto His disciples, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.



We love God by demonstration, not through mere empty religious talk. 



Joh 14:15 If you love Me, keep My commandments. 



Joh 14:21 He that has My commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves Me: and he that loves Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 

Joh 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man loves Me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him, and make Our abode with him. 



To become the living habitation and demonstration of His love means to give God control of your entire life and your entire heart. 



After a 12 day fast years ago the Lord spoke to me the following; "Did I not say in John 14 that I would come to those who demonstrate their devotion toward Me through an obedient heart? 



Yes indeed, I love to inhabit a holy surrendered heart because so I have ordained it to be My eternal resting place. This is why I call those who love Me the temple of the Lord. Their hearts becomes the altar of eternal worship in the kingdom of My Father and their devotion towards us is like sweet incense before My throne. 



I treasure a heart devoted towards Me because My love fills such a heart and is the greatest gift to man.”



Amazingly after the Lord Jesus finished His God-given assignment and after He touched, healed, restored and blessed so many lives in His earthly ministry, so much so that John writes in John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written, in Matthew 28 we see only 11 disciples present when Jesus gave the great commission. 



Where were all those people that He touched?



The Holy Spirit asked me the following question;



Isn't the reason for this that in every generation we find the givers and the takers? 



Those who are in this thing called Christianity only because they want to see what they can get from God and the very few that are willing to follow the Master wherever He leads. The few that are willing to lay down their lives just like Jesus for the benefit of others.



Most love to be saved by Christ, most dislike to be challenged by His love.



True repentance is only possible when Christ is followed through the cross in obedience unto the death of self. 






This is the glory of His gospel. 



A worm cannot fly in the freedom of the wind, and cannot be born and brought forth as a new creation butterfly unless it undergoes death through metamorphosis.



1John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for His nature remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.



2 Peter 1:3  According as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue:



 4  Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 



Once the spiritual new creation, which is created after God in true righteousness and holiness, is brought into full manifestation through the power of the resurrection, God's divine nature kicks in and infuses the entire being of the one that allowed himself to be truly crucified with Christ. 



The Spirit of God showed me and caused me to experience the truth of these realities by divine prophetic encounters. 




The death of the old order of the flesh, ushers in the manifestation and release of the new creation created after God in true righteousness and holiness.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
