The League Of True Love
God IS love, that's His divine nature. It's who, what, how and why He is and love is not religious in any way, it is perfectly natural and absolutely virtuous.
ABSOLUTELY holy, peaceful, graceful, gracious, assertive, caring, charitable, compassionate, confident, considerate, cooperative, courageous, courteous, creative, determined, dignified, diligent, enthusiastic, faithful, flexible, forgiving, friendly, generous, gentle, helpful, honest, honorable, humble, idealistic, integral, joyful, kind, loyal, moderate, modest, noble, orderly, patient, persevering, purposeful, reliable, respectful, responsible, self-disciplined, tactful, thankful, tolerant, trusting, trustworthy, truthful, understanding and wise.
These are the characteristics (fruits) of absolute, true love's (God's) divine nature.
Religion is the construct and structure, that comes from the mind of man, in trying to understand God and put Him in a box. But God IS love and nobody can fathom the depths of His love or contain Him in a box.
It's the pride, vanity and selfish ambition of "the flesh" and its instinctual nature, that leads people to imagine and believe His eternal presence, realm and reality (kingdom) is governed and ruled by a religious, empirical hierarchy. But what they fail to understand, because they are led by their instincts, is that His kingdom is not governed and ruled by a hierarchy, but by His Holy Ghost, which is the supernatural presence of His divine nature and characteristics of absolute, undying, virtuous, true love, which governs and dictates our EVERY thought, word and deed.
The religiously minded, are in for a very rude awakening, when they find out the hierarchy is just a grand illusion, that God uses to test the hearts and minds for the pride, vanity and selfish ambition of "the flesh", and just how far short they TRULY fall, and that they are UNABLE to enter His eternal presence, realm and reality, because they are not governed and ruled by the nature and characteristics (spirit) of His true love, but by the pride, vanity, selfish ambition, lust, desire for creature comforts and fear for survival, that are the characteristics of their sinful, instinctual nature. They simply, can't "fit in" with the true way of life in His eternal presence, realm and reality of absolute love and virtuousness (righteousness), whether they know it or not, believe it or not, like it or not, ready or not.
This is why He gave me the invitation to deliver, to come out of the world altogether and all together, to live for love (God) with all your heart, mind, body and soul (absolutely), according to His true love's absolute holiness, peacefulness, gracefulness and graciousness, with absolute equanimity, humility and cooperativeness, without a care in the world, like little children at heart, though far from childish.
However, in the fulfilment of scripture (Luke 14:16-35), all the religiously minded were so blinded by their instinctual pride, vanity, selfish ambition, lust, desire for creature comforts and fear for survival, they could not receive it, let alone ACT on it, and do not realise they have marked themselves as being governed and ruled by "the beast" of their instinctual nature, and I've heard every excuse under the sun.
For the kingdom of God has come near to you, but you were not ready, willing or ABLE to receive it or understand it, due to the blindness of "the flesh".
"I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing' - and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked."Revelation 3:15-17
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors - not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh (instinctual nature) 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 (and daughters) of God.Romans 8:12-14
The light of Christ, is the light of THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, with the presence of true love and the absence of pride.
The light of Lucifer, is the light of THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, with the presence of pride and the absence of true love.
SAME KNOWLEDGE, different nature and characteristics (spirit).
Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness.Luke 11:35
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
