Harvest A Crop Of Love
The Great Omniscient Deity of absolute, undying, true love sows the seed of your soul, your little spark of eternal awareness and divine inspiration, the morning star of endless dawns, in the body of your flesh, before you are born and guess what? Every body has one, whether they know it or not, believe it or not, like it or not.
He calls it, the heart of hearts and when He first gives birth to it, in the supernatural, He breathes His life into it. This means, He fills it with the knowledge and awareness of His divine nature and characteristics of absolute, majestic, virtuous, true love. In other words, you (and every body else) were born knowing the truth, the way and the life (the true way of life) in the eternal presence, realm and reality of absolute, true love.
It's just too hard, to be a perfect gentleman or gentlewoman, ALL the time!
Too hard, because you don't understand the nature of things, you're all too caught up in trying to be the character and the character doesn't come from your trying to "be a character". It comes from the characteristics of the nature within you and at its most basic level, you're either good-natured or bad-natured.
THE BEAST, is the beastly character that comes from the characteristic pride, vanity, envy, selfish ambition, lust, desire for creature comfort and fear for survival, of the instinctual nature of "the flesh".
While the saint, is the absolutely virtuous character, that comes from the characteristics of the divine nature of absolute, undying, virtuous, true love. The character of a perfect gentleman or gentlewoman of the Great Omniscient Deity of absolute love, that which is called "The Christ".
He isn't one man, unless there's only one man who's living from the divine nature of absolute, undying, virtuous, true love (Immanuel - Jesus, duh!). It's the character that comes from the characteristics of the divine nature.
Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising.Acts 17:29
The divine nature is the source (Father), the characteristics are the virtues (Holy Spirit) and the character that comes from that, is the son or daughter.
In His eternal presence, realm and reality of absolute, majestic, virtuous, true love, everyone is of one accord, they all share the same nature and characteristics, yet no character is the same. We are all cut from the same cloth, yet all wear different clothes...
You don't die, what you call death is merely the picking of fruit. Are you the fruit (character) that comes from the knowledge and awareness of His divine nature and characteristics, He planted in your soul, your heart of hearts, before you were born? Or are you the fruit of your sinful, instinctual nature, that feeds the mind with dark thoughts that have their Source In Negativity (SIN)?
For God only gathers into His home, the good fruit of His divine nature and the spoiled fruit is cast into the trash pit, the eternal presence, realm and reality of absolutely no love or virtue, that is known as hell.
I said, 'Plant the good seeds of righteousness (virtuousness), and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and shower righteousness (His virtuousness) upon you.'Hosea 10:12
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (and other characteristics of the instinctual nature).2 Peter 1:2-4
If you truly understand this, then you'd realise all your worldly cares, concerns, desires, hopes and dreams, are so petty and trivial, and blow away like leaves in the wind.
Love is the only true meaning of life and the only thing that never changes. As for everything else, this too shall pass and come to nothing... it burns bright for a little while, then fizzles and dies, like a candle in the wind.
You can't take it with you and all that remains, is your soul.
Have you nurtured it and grown in true love and virtuousness (righteousness) or has it never seen the light of day or sprouted and withered away, because you are so governed and ruled (controlled) by your sinful, instinctual nature and characteristics?
Virtue of the Week
Being responsible means others can trust you to do things to the best of your abilities. You accept accountability for your actions. When you make a mistake, you offer amends instead of excuses. Responsibility is the ability to respond capably and to make wise choices and decisions.
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.Proverbs 22:6
