I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

Your life is an opportunity to know Me. And I am love. So your life is an opportunity to know and experience love. The love that is beyond human understanding that is higher than the heavens and deeper than the sea. That is vaster and broader than the universe and all it contains. It is the unfathomable love of My love for you has revealed in Christ Jesus your Lord. And it flows from redemption which brings reconciliation by justification from sin.

You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you to Myself. Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own special treasure among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ Exodus 19:4-6.

I have redeemed you and justified you by the blood of the unblemished Lamb to be My own special treasure. I give you the opportunity for greatness. I have created you for glory. I have created you by love, in love, with love, and for love. The love that makes us One and that never fails, dies, gives up, or loses its freshness.

I am speaking of divine love and not mere human love. And I have poured My divine love into your heart by the gift of the Holy Spirit.

His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 2 Peter 1:3-4.

Human love and divine love have some similar attributes but diverge in more ways than they are alike. I am speaking of this because many people, even believers, are mixing up the two and thus tolerating things in the name of “love” that are not love at all but of the flesh.

Human love is permissive. Human love considers administering discipline to be against love. Human love will tolerate evil. Human love will tolerate unfruitfulness. But despite this tolerance for evil in the one loved, even their own children whom they will not discipline for fear of losing their love, human love is not continuous and uninterrupted, it depends on the behavior of the other in response to its love. Human love is selfish, and it can quit when things are not to its benefit. Being a strong emotion, if rejected or violated, it easily turns to hate. Human love is jealous and thus can result in revenge and vindictiveness against the object of its desire.

Divine love is true love. It is the way I love for that is My nature and My being. True love is continuous and uninterrupted. True love is a continuous flow of goodness and kindness, compassion and mercy, that is generated by My divine nature because of who I am. My sun rises and My rain falls on the good and the bad, the just and the unjust. It is a flow that allows nothing to enter it and abide therein except true love. And this is where human love and divine love greatly differ; divine love does not tolerate evil. I am love but righteousness and justice are the foundation of My throne.

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; lovingkindness and truth go before You. Psalm 89:14.

And that is what the Lamb is all about. I had to make you righteous and justify you to bring you into My Kingdom so you can abide with Me. And it was My unconditional love for you and the truth of who I am that devised the plan to put your sins on Jesus as your unblemished Lamb of sacrifice and attribute His purity and righteousness to you. I thus extended legal mercy to you in the Lamb as foreshadowed in the Passover and the sacrifices of the Law as revealed to Moses but practiced since sin entered the world.

And true love does not accept lukewarmness or unfruitfulness. Love produces fruit. Love produces good works. Love is not sluggish but actively working for good, seeking the benefit and prosperity of all in a godly way.

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. Titus 2:11-14.

Remember the parable of the unproductive fig tree that was clogging up the ground and taking up space and resources but not producing? Luke 13:6-9. Remember the fig tree that was covered in leaves but produced no fruit? Jesus took it out of commission. Mark 11:12-14. Remember the servant who buried his talent, though he knew it was meant to produce, and did nothing with it? I called that wicked and lazy. Matthew 25:26.

You who believe are members of the Body of Christ. Just as every part of your human body has an assigned place and an important work to do, every part is key to wholeness of health and life, productiveness, and the ability to function effectively in the world, so it is in the Body of Christ, the vast Church of those who believe in My Son and have become My children. 1 Corinthians 12:12-30.

And I discipline every child I receive. Why? To protect you from the evil one and keep you safe and secure in the jurisdiction of My Kingdom, which is a love kingdom.

My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD, or loathe His reproof, for whom the LORD loves He reproves, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights. Proverbs 3:11-12.

Please understand this, if you abide, remain, walk, and live in divine love, you remain secure and safe for you are in My Kingdom, that is, within My domain, and evil cannot penetrate its walls or enter its gates. The evil one cannot get through to you for the gates of hell cannot prevail against it. Evil flees before Me.

“Violence will not be heard again in your land, nor devastation or destruction within your borders; but you will call your walls salvation, and your gates praise.” Isaiah 60:18.

But if you walk, step, live outside of love, even for a moment of hatred or anger, you are on enemy territory, you are out of the shield of love, out of the walls, and out of the gates, you are out from under the blood, and you are subject to attack. You see this in the first Passover, they were not to exit their homes that were covered by the blood on their door posts and lintels or they would be struck down. In Christ you are safe.

But having made My Kingdom your home by taking Jesus as Lord you are still under My jurisdiction, like when as a citizen of another country is in enemy territory, I have the authority to rescue you when you call to Me for help, but you will have been attacked with sickness, pain, lack, depression, or a host of other demonic spirits because where the carcass is there the vultures will gather and there are high risks in sinning, which is walking out of love. But the minute you return, the minute you again open your heart to Me, for you harden and close it when you will not forgive or have bitter roots that you have permitted to grow and take a stronghold of the enemy in you, I can free you, but part of the love walk is to exercise your authority that I have given you in Christ to never tolerate evil in your mind or body or in those over whom you have authority, such as your household.

You must answer evil with the truth of My Word in love and cast it out immediately to tread it under your feet. Do not tolerate evil in yourself or in your children or those in your charge, for you are all pastors and teachers to those I send you. Love is not toleration of evil and unfruitfulness, it is exhorting, edifying, and encouraging others (and above all yourself) to walk in the discipline of love. You must always speak the truth in love.

But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world. 1 Corinthians 11:31-32.

I did not tolerate the devil and the angels who followed him to remain with Me once evil and unrighteousness entered into them though I had created them perfect and good. I cast them out of My Kingdom. They would have gone to hell then, but Adam reinstated Satan in the earth and on Adam’s throne as the son of man until Jesus came and took that seat and overcame Satan in the flesh as one of you, but with a great difference in that He was born, as Adam was before changing jurisdictions, from My Word, the incorruptible seed, so that He had an eternal life to give to satisfy divine justice for all of you.

Satan and the angels who followed him have no redemption or savior for the angelic nature is such that it has no ability to repent or to change once it sets its course.

The best way to resist the attacks of the devil and the unclean demonic spirits is to remain in love and never for a moment let your authority and your guard down so that you step out of love.

We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was is born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. Little children, guard yourselves from idols. 1 John 5:18-21.

Never change the jurisdiction where you are dwelling. Satan is constantly trying to pull you out of love and light back into the darkness of hate and bitterness, depression and fear. But I have rescued you from the realm of darkness and translated you to the Kingdom of the Light of the world, My beloved Son.

“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. Behold, your house is being left to you desolate! Matthew 23:37-38.

The heart of the message of love is Jesus your Messiah. Jesus proceeded from My bosom, the depths of My being, My very heart, and revealed Me to you. I made everything through Him and for Him and in that way safely gave it all to you who have My love in your hearts.

Pursue love. It should be your great quest. It is the most excellent way.

Abide in My love. How do you do that so you are walking in complete security and perfect protection? You keep My commandments, and they are not burdensome. This is My commandment, that you believe in the Name of My Son, Jesus, and love as He commanded you.

Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us. The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us. 1 John 3:18-24.

And Jesus commanded you one commandment, to love one another as He has loved you. And how did He love you? He laid down His life to save you and counted your interests more important than His. He lives to make intercession for you. And how can you do His works in the world? By doing what He did while walking among you, and He did it all from pure divine love. He taught you the truth and tolerated no evil. He used the authority I gave Him as Son of Man and delegated that authority to you to cast out demons, heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, calm storms, and to go about doing good and healing all those oppressed by the devil.

As I sent Him, so He sends you. The Spirit I gave Him, He gives to you. And I sent Him to seek out and save the lost and to undo the works of the devil. He came to preach the good news to the poor (forgiveness and prosperity), to heal the broken hearted (with divine love), to set the captives free (cast out demons), and to declare the age of My favor and grace, your Jubilee.

In Jesus I have given you the glorious opportunity, the highest honor and privilege, to live your life with, in, and through Him. To imitate Me as My dear children and walk in love, just as He did. This abundant life of glory is beyond anything you could ask, dream, or imagine but I am offering it to each and every one of you.

Know and believe in the love I have for you, it is everlasting to everlasting and will always be with you to care for you, bless you, favor you, heal you, help you, lead you.

He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What will man do to me?” Hebrews 13:5-7.

Make love your life-long quest and you will never fear.

We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because He first loved us. 1 John 4:16-19.

In Jesus, I paid the price for you and made you whole. And I did it for only one reason. Love. My love for you.

My thoughts are higher than your thoughts and My ways than your ways. I have no malice or ill will towards anyone. Evil has no place in Me and it cannot enter Me.

Now I have told you before it happens, so that when it happens, you may believe. I will not speak much more with you, for the ruler of the world is coming, and he has nothing in Me; but so that the world may know that I love the Father, I do exactly as the Father commanded Me. John 14:29-31.

Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another. Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil any place. Ephesians 4:25-27.

You can always be assured that I will only do good to you, never evil. If evil comes it is not of My making.

“In righteousness you will be established; you will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; and from terror, for it will not come near you. If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. Isaiah 54:14-15.

And if it attacks you answer it and take it down but be sure to check your love walk, if you have wandered onto enemy territory get back on the right track.

But the man who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had slipped away while there was a crowd in that place. Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “Behold, you have become well; do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you.” John 5:13-14.

I love you. Abide in My love and your life will be sweet and your heart will be right. Be so grateful for the life I have given you. It is My gift to you so that you can know, experience, rest in, abide in, be blessed in LOVE. If you experience the life of walking with Me in love, you will never find any other way of life acceptable to you again. And gratitude for so great a salvation and so blessed an assurance will turn your life into the garden of Eden. And that all has to do with the tree of life which is now the body and blood of Christ, the fruit of the tree of the cross.

You pore over the Scriptures because you presume that by them you possess eternal life. These are the very words that testify about Me, yet you refuse to come to Me to have life. John 5:39-40.

He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.” John 6:56-58.
