Finding True Love
Now we're getting to the crux of it, the rarest of pearls, the most tenderest meat, if you have the humility and heart to receive it, and are able to digest it, that is.
In eternity, it's all about the nature of things, because all spirits are natures and all natures have certain characteristics, that define and form the character of that nature.
The instinctual nature of man or what people call "human nature", is the nature of "the flesh", that is characterised by pride, vanity, envy, selfish ambition, lust, desire for creature comforts and fear for survival.
There is a war that rages within us all, the battle between two natures. The beast of our instinctual nature and the divine nature of absolute love.
Now the nature of love, is characterised by absolute, majestic virtuousness and the character that it forms, is the perfect gentleman or gentlewoman of true love, a true saint (the character of Christ).
Now some people find true love, but sadly, it can die. Not in itself, for True Love (God) can never die. But it can die in us and when it does, we become cold-hearted, negative, depressed, lose confidence, courage, joy, hope, etc. In other words, we are robbed of the virtues of true love, and what you may or may not realise, is that Lucifer is real and he is out to destroy True Love (because God IS True Love), and he does that by destroying the virtue in us. For when virtuousness dies in us, so does true love, because the characteristics of the nature of love, is absolute virtuousness. Capisce?
This is why, it's so important to overcome our instinctual (sinful) nature, because its characteristic pride, vanity, selfish ambition, lust, desire for creature comforts and fear for survival, feeds the mind with thoughts that have their Source In Negativity, that will drag you into the pit of despair and misery (hell), and before long, your character is not one you enjoy at all. In fact, you begin to hate yourself, because you're not the happy, confident, positive person you really want to be. But you can't help it, it just drags you down and after a while, you "lose yourself".
WRONG! You can help it, if you realise that you don't need anyone else to find true love and that in fact, the further you allow yourself to be dragged down into that pit of misery, despair, despondency, etc. The further away you are from true love and the further you get, the harder it is to find.
Now, to find true love, you need to look into your heart, deep into your heart, past all the desires, fears and insecurity, etc., of the carnal heart of the instinctual beast, and into your heart of hearts. Because, your heart of hearts, is your soul, that God (True Love) gave birth to in the supernatural, before you were born into the flesh.
The soul, is really nothing more or less, than a spark of eternal awareness and divine inspiration, a morning star of endless dawns. When God breathed life into your soul, your heart of hearts, He filled it with His life, which means, He filled it with all the knowledge and awareness of absolute love and virtuousness, with the intent that all your inspiration would come from true love and be expressed with absolute virtuousness.
This is why, everyone actually knows the true way of life we're meant to be living, because everyone knows it, in their heart of hearts and why you can recognise it and it "rings true", when you hear it. Because you already know it, in your heart of hearts! It's just that you've been brainwashed since birth, by the instinctual nature of your flesh and this world that is governed and ruled by instinct, particularly the survival instinct.
Look into your heart and answer me this? Why do you go to work, in a job you may or may not love? I'll tell you why, it's to satisfy your instinctual nature's desire for creature comforts and placate it's fear for survival. Why else would you enslave yourself, to provide for the comfort and security of "the flesh"?
You can keep sitting on the fence, with one foot in the kingdom and one in the world, trying to live in both. But that won't get you anywhere. All that means, is that you're stuck between two completely different worlds, the realm and reality (natural kingdom) of "the flesh", that's governed and ruled by the instinctual nature, and the realm and reality (natural kingdom) of absolute love.
The choice is yours to make, of what nature you allow to govern and dictate your life, but I'm here to warn you, that you can't sit on the fence any longer.
Whether you know it or not, believe it or not, like it or not, ready or not, it's time to make a decision, to step back into the world that's governed and ruled by the instinctual nature (the beast), with BOTH feet, or step into the world that's governed and ruled by God's nature of absolute love, with BOTH feet. And decide you must, for God's about to tear down the fence and all those who sit on it, with a foot in two worlds, serving two different nature's (masters), will be torn down with it and thrown into the outer darkness of absolute oblivion and forgetfulness, along with it.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.Joel 3:14
Now you can react and recoil from your natural instincts and its pride, vanity and selfish ambition (ego) or desire for creature comforts and fear for survival, and pull the wool over your eyes and deceive yourself that you've got all the time in the world, but God's giving you this message through me (and I'm sure there are others that are hearing it), THE WORLD'S TIME IS UP! They just don't know it yet...
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors - not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit (nature and characteristics) of God (true love), these are sons of God.Romans 8:12-14
Virtue of the Week
Gentleness is moving wisely, touching softly, holding carefully, speaking quietly and thinking kindly. When you feel mad or hurt, use your self-control. Instead of harming someone, talk things out peacefully. You are making the world a more civil, gentler place.
But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness (virtuousness), godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.1 Timothy 6:11
