Brothers and sisters, I strongly believe the Lord wants me to give you this word from Him, in this hour while there is still a little time to do so.
"I Have Loved you With An Everlasting Love, You Are Mine."
Our God has wanted our love from the very beginning of time, when He walked in the garden of Eden with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day.
Yet first man and woman turned in disobedience to self, rather in making their relationship with the Father their priority, loving the Lord God with all of their heart, soul, and strength.
Deu 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
He is calling each one of us to turn from ourselves and love Him with all of our hearts, with all of our soul, and with all of our might.
He loves each one of us with everything He is.
He created each of us to love and be loved. He created us to love Him, and when He manifested Himself as a man, Jesus Christ-Yeshua, He came to redeem you to Himself for each of you to see how much He loves you, as a man He would allow Himself to go through the greatest physical, and emotional pain, as he gave of Himself to hang on that excruciating cross until death.
It didn't end there, because He rose from the dead on the third day and He lives, making intercession to the Father for all that have received His love, and make Him their Lord and Savior, laying our selves down to live for Him, as overcomers of the world the flesh and the devil.
We belong to him now, we do not belong to ourselves, and what He wants and wanted that day as He hung on that cross, was to redeem us to Himself, that we would belong to Him and would give Him our lives and all of our love from the very fiber of our being.
Satan's plan from the beginning was to draw each of us to himself, and away from God, he wanted to be worshiped as God, and each time we sin or chase after the things of this world, he is drawing us away from our Father God and our love wanes more and more until Abba is put on a back burner. When we put every other thing before Him, we come out from that secret place in Him and we are more vulnerable to satan's schemes and we can be moved out of the hedge of protection. Just as satan got Job out of the protection of the hedge.
Psalm 91 is the word for this hour we are in, these are promises God is making to those who love Him.
Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psa 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
Psa 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
Psa 91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
Abiding is the key to every protection we read about in Psalm 91. These promises are not for those who are mouth professors, but for those who make it a point to pour their heart out to him, that separate themselves from the love of the world and it's system, and remain in Him as we go through out the day.
There cannot be any other loves that take His place, because when other things and people take Hisplace, He withdraws and we can find ourselves out from beneath His wings.
Our main focus should be worshiping Him in truth and Spirit, for Him to be our daily portion, and to put our full trust in him, the author and finisher of our faith. And to go and teach others about His love for us, and how we are to love him and our neighbors as ourselves.
I know that many in other countries, (specifically Africa) may read this and because of traditions of men you may have never heard this, nor learned to make it a part of your life.
I want you to know that our whole reason to become a Christian is to come to know the Lord and to have an abiding relationship with Him. To love him more then your own lives.
Rather then a dead religion, it is a living abiding walk with the Lord in the Spirit, rather then by works of the flesh, it isn't in following tradition in dead works, but following the living Lord in love, with our whole hearts and to tell the world about our wonderful Lord, who laid His life down on the cross, to bring us back into relationship with Him, a relationship we lost in disobedience.
Joh 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
The Lord has commanded us to preach the gospel and teach His own how He loves them enough to die for them, and that we are to love him and our neighbors as ourselves.
This is the gospel in a nutshell, it is all about loving Him and our neighbors, near and far this shows the world He lives in us.
The Lord has shown us how to live, He has given us His word so that we have a road map to follow on the way into the kingdom.
They are living words, given to us by inspiration of the Holy Spirit through godly men of God.
The word of God is alive and it will change you, it will change your heart, just speak forth the word, proclaim its truth it so it gets into your hearts. You are a new creation.
If you do not surrender your will to the Lord God,(Yahweh) you will follow after satan, as he will continue to put roadblocks and temptations before you, if you follow after your own desires, ultimately you will become a follower of satan rather then a follower of God.
I know it has always been hard for people to love a God who they could not see, that is why so many made idols to worship, which God hates.
So thus, he came as a man, He manifested as the Son of God, Jesus Christ, Yeshua, so that He could be seen, and touched and known intimately.
The disciples knew him intimately, especially John who would rest his head upon Yeshua's chest in adoration.
But now we have God's word as a living testimony of His love for us, when He came as a man. No man has ever laid his life down for us in such a terrible manner of death, the most painful way to die, not even a friend nor anyone that ever lived but Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
My brothers and sisters, he did this because He loves you, and me and He is worthy of all of our hearts, all of our love, He is worthy of our laying down our own lives in love for Him.
He is not some far off God, he is ever Present with you, and His Presence is manifested to you when you pour your love out to him in worship.
When you sin or walk in the flesh, or pay Him no heed, He withdraws Himself, though He is near when you call, when you come to him with all your heart.
You don't have to wait, for God to draw you, because he has been doing that for so long and you have been ignoring His call, His gentle tugs at your heart have gone unnoticed, but He is there. He is near and all you have to do is say His name, Jesus (Yeshua) and open up your heart and pour your love out to Him. He is worthy of all of our love, He is worthy for us to to lay our lives down, to pick up our cross and follow after Him.
He has been trying to get our attention as soon as we knew there was a God and even before that, in so many ways, unimaginable.
Satan has put so many diversions before us, and the biggest one is money, possessions, or lack thereof, this is his way to draw us away from God and to himself.
In Yahweh God there is no lack, it is in Him that we learn as we trust Him that He will provides for us in supernatural ways. Ways we never dreamed possible, He makes a way out of no way. Hebrews 11:1
When our focus is outward toward the world and the things of the world, He will not compete for your attention, but when you begin to love Him with all of your heart, He will show you how very much He loves you.
Turn your eyes upon Jesus, it is about relationship, not religion. How can you have a relationship with someone you do not truly love, nor trust. Mouthing words that are not from the heart is not a relationship, and whether you know it or not, He knows the difference.
It is not to say that in these coming days as the world is in more and more in chaos and as the economy worsens, that we will not go through some trials, but when we absolutely put our hope and trust in Him, and we love Him with all of our hearts, his promises in His word will be fulfilled.
He will hide you, He will supernaturally provide, his angels will keep you just as his word promises, and you will praise Him for He is worthy of all praise and glory.
Beloved one who reads this. God loves you with an everlasting love, He is calling you to Himself away from the ways of the world and all its attraction.
He did not die in vain, he will have a bride, without spot and wrinkle and that bride loves Him with all of her heart and is devoted to Him. The cares of the world and things of the world have no more pull on His bride, for she has let go of everything but him.
To spend eternity with Him, we must know Him and His love for us, and we must be mutual partakers of His love, how can we spend eternity with him never having known Him as our bridegroom.
If you have not known Him in this way, he is calling you to Himself.
He wants you to know Him in a way you have never known, rather then just a God in word only. The Lord wants to become real in your life.
He will reveal Himself to you in a real way if you will You will love Him, and keep his commandments.
You shall know that He is there, ever longing for your attention and love.
Joh 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth 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 love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
Holy, holy, holy Lord God almighty, Who was Who is, and Is to come, worthy, Holy, Holy, Holy, we bow before Your Majesty the name of the Lord is to be praised! He must increase, I must decrease. Pour out your love Saints, worship the Bridegroom.
