Those who TRULY LOVE -ARE TRULY LOVED
Did you ever notice how some people exude love for others, they make frequent eye contact
and have a warm personality, and really listen when they are spoken to? The bible says
that when a certain man asked Jesus what the most important, of all the commandments,
He said love GOD with all thy strength, mind and soul, and LOVE thy brother as you
love yourself. For all of the laws of the prophets, hang on these two commandments.
It also says that "we love because Christ first loved us " When you have the HOLY SPIRIT
of GOD living inside of you, and are guided by it, then these things become easy.
Proverbs says that a soft answer turn'th away wrath, it is hard to be hateful to some one who
has unshakable faith, and loves you even when you are treating them harshly. If they answer back
to scornful words with love by saying something like " I will pray for you" and you know that
they mean it and are not just saying it...That kind of takes the wind of most people's sails.
People who truly LOVE are TRULY LOVED. They make no distinctions about your race or your gender, but simply see you for what you are.
.another human being who like them, was created in the image of GOD. This is how GOD expects us to treat all people cause the bible says that all men are created equal in the eyes of the LORD.
If you want to have these qualities then simply ask GOD for forgiveness of sin, truly repent, and pray and ask GOD for the HOLY SPIRIT, confess the name of Jesus Christ as your savior, and the HOLY SPIRIT will come into your heart, and you will be a new creature.
Wisdom is taught by being with the HOLY SPIRIT, for it can answer all things, for it comes from the wisdom of GOD.
Every human being has different needs as far as being taught, but the bible says that the HOLY SPIRIT " is" the best teacher.
The best part of all of this is that it is free for the asking, all that is required is that you be sincere.."to come as a child" The key to receiving the HOLY SPIRIT is BELIEVING, There is a lesson to be learned about the part of the bible where Jesus healed the blind men.
First Jesus asked them if they BELIEVED that he could do this, and when they said "yea LORD" Jesus by having the power of decernment, KNEW, that they were telling him the truth.
..So instead of just saying to them "be ye healed" HE said "be it unto you according to your faith" I think that the reason he said it this way was to teach others that FIRST YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE TO RECEIVE!
Another place in the bible ( I think that it is in Matthew) It says, that when you pray believe that it will be given "doubting NOTHING".....When you throw a ball into the air, you believe doubting nothing that it will come back down.
Well to get a prayer answered you FIRST have to believe that it will be given ,as a minister I have heard many people cheat themselves out of miraculous healings by simply saying "if" it is GODS will then it shall be done.
Take out the IF, for it always is GODS will to do healing, for he places no "conditions" on his healing other than this.
There was a cleaning lady that I was talking to one day last year and she said that the hospital had poked and prodded her for the last six months trying to figure out what was her condition, and they finally said that she had an incurable blood cancer of a new strain besides leukemia.
I first asked her if she believed in Jesus and she said yes, I then asked her if she knew the key to devine healing and she said she thought she did, but wanted to know what I thought it was.
I told her that she HAD to believe "doubting nothing" that it would be done. She quickly said " I do", by having the spirit of discernment I knew instantly that she meant it and was telling me the truth.
Because I felt it in my HEART. So I laid hands on her shoulders, said a prayer of faith, in which I quoted scripture about healing and told the LORD that I knew HE knew that I believed and that I also knew that she believed.
So I thanked GOD in the prayer, for doing the healing before I was through saying the prayer, and I added "what is impossible for men to cure, YOU can do always.
She said that she felt as if she had been cured and that she had to go back to the hospital the following Monday, this was on a Friday, well anyways when I saw her the next Monday.
She said that the hospital run some blood test on her and were astounded because they could not find ANY TRACE OF HER HAVING BLOOD CANCER!
PRAISE HOLY LORD JESUS NAME! You see, you do not have to be a minister of GOD to do faith healings, all you have to do is expect, that it WILL, be done, for the sake of JESUS name the father will always honor, a prayer said in faith.
The person being healed, also has to believe, that GOD can and will do it! For the LORD will not do a single thing more for me that he will not do for anyone else.
The bible says that (The LORD is NOT a respecter of persons) But he will always honor a prayer said in FAITH, for JESUS NAME SAKE!
So believe me brothers, GOD is still IN the miracle business..LORD BLESS YOU ALL, and please pray that the civic leaders in this country may have devine influence in the laws that they write that govern this great nation.
