Everyone thinks that they know about love. The brain mostly filters out love talk because we think we already have the concept down. Our limbic system hears love and compares it to our early childhood memories and either fears feeling the pain of unmet love needs or avoids feeling the excruciating despair of a broken-heart from loss, abandonment, betrayal, intrusion or neglect. Or the mind defaults to love as sex; or defaults to romantic love; or to familial love or love of friends or love of material things or passions.
No one really knows about Love! There is a new Love in town and most are avoiding it, distrust it, are cynical about it, bitter, resentful or disbelieving of it, therefore reject it. Human beings are conditioned from an early age to be in bondage to pain (no pain no gain), suffering (all life is suffering), disappointment, disillusionment, guarding, armoring, arming, defending and protecting their ego (conditioned, separate self) from harm. The early pain of unmet love needs continues to haunt the person and shuts down the heart.
True Love, manifested into physical form, rolled into the world over 2000 years ago. Love came from the Source of Love. God is Love without an opposite! Human beings had been conditioned to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, therefore, could only see love containing an opposite: either hate, fear or apathy. Humans were love-wounded so they became too cerebral; religions had a dearth of Love and became legalistic, atheists and agnostics were devoid of Real Love, so God sent Love in a human body to show what Love is and how Love acts!
When Love walked into a city, all who came to him were healed of all diseases, including mental illness, and spiritual, heart or emotional issues. All were delivered and set free. Everyone’s heart was opened, purified, refined, and the eyes of the heart were opened to spiritual perception. Being in Love’s Presence uplifted, encouraged, inspired, revealed, and left people with a deep joy, alive peacefulness and perfect love that removed all fears. Love brought complete freedom from all addictions, bondage, bad habits and the past. Love brought a Spirit of Love, a renewing Mind, an open heart, and a healed light-filled body to all who believed in Love!
Over time people forgot Love, or were re-conditioned to the past, or were killed for believing in Love. Misery loves company! So Love sent a new wave of Spirit to set hearts ablaze with Love once again. Now Love is calling for a reformation of Love! A new fruiting of Love! A revival of Love! A tsunami of Love! A new creation of Love! A fresh encounter or experience of the actual substance and evidence of Love!!!!
Love is the fruit of the Spirit of God! Love is peace, joy, goodness, gentleness, kindness, patience, faithfulness, and self-control. Perfect Love casts out fear. With Love in our heart we know that we are of the Truth, our hearts have confidence, are reassured, and we receive all that we ask as we abide in Love (1 John 3:18-24). “Let us Love one another; for Love is of God, and those who Love are born of God and know God. those who do not Love do not know God; for God is Love” (1 John 4:7-20).
Love is the more excellent Way! Love is patient, kind, not jealous or envious, not boastful or arrogant or rude, does not insist on its own way, not selfish or self-serving, not irritable, resentful, bitter or lustful, holds no record of wrongs, bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things and endures all things. Love never ends! When perfect Love comes, the imperfect passes away!!!! The greatest of all things is Love! Make love your aim (1 Cor 12:31, – 13:1-13, – 14:1)!
Love is the divine nature of God; no one born of God commits sin for God’s nature abides in them (1 John 3:9). Love teaches you everything you need to know and Love is Truth (1 John 2:27). There are only two commandments that fulfill all the other commandments, laws, creeds, doctrine and rules: Love God and Love one another! “He who does not Love abides in death” 1 John 3:14. If you don’t Love God and one another, you are in the dominion of darkness, blind, murderers, adulterers, idolaters, evil, wicked, rebellious, with satan as your father. Jesus said of the religious of his day, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I proceeded and came forth from God [Love]…why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word [Love]. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires [everything but Love: destroy, kill, steal love, peace and joy; lie, hide the Truth, deceive, trick]” John 8:42-47. Love comes from the Father of Love! Every perfect gift and endowment comes down from the Father of Light: the Father of Real True Love!
Without Love you cannot belong to Love’s Royal Family. The blood of Jesus is the Blood of perfect Love DNA! Love is poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit: the Spirit of Love and Truth. Love is the calling card of a follower of Christ. I am saddened to say that there are many so-called christians who are not followers of Christ with transformed, open hearts full of Love, full of God! Without Love, God will say, “I never knew you”. Only Love can commune with Love; only Love can be perfectly one with Love! Only those whose natures are transformed into Love can be in fellowship with Love Itself: God.
God is Love. God the Father is the Mind of Love: pure Awareness, Presence, Awake, Alive Consciousness of Love, Stillness, Silence of pure Love. God the Mother is the Heart of Love: tenderness, compassion, comfort, nurture, nourishment, sweetness, loving kindness, patience, satisfying sustenance, holding, touching, singing, closeness, caring, pure Love as a Mother breast-feeding an infant, a single eye of pure Love-Light. Christ is the body of Love that is full of Light, enlightened, enlivened, en-love-ened, and en-joy-ened! The Spirit of Love, Life Itself, flows continually in and through and around the beloved of Love!
I have found the one Love that my soul Loves! A heart full of Love, a soul full of Love, an intention of Love, a mind full of Love, a body full of Love and a spirit flowing with Love is the new creation of the Source of Love! The Source of Love sent Love into the world to transform, transfigure and transmute all creation into Love! Yes! Believe and receive!
Love is the fruit of the Spirit! Love is the tree of life! Love is the healer! Love is Life! God is Invisible Love! Christ is visible Love in action! Holy Spirit is the flow of Love that pours into our heart and transforms us! Our real religion is Love! Love fulfills all law! Love reveals God! Love transcends matter, then becomes immanent within it! Love knows God and becomes like Christ! Love never fails! Love is always win/win! Love is eternal! Love is transcendent and immanent in all creation, created by Love as God! Love is beyond religion, creeds, laws, nations, races, gender, or individuals. Love is the root and ground of being; Love is the body of Christ; Love is the root, trunk, branches, leaves and fruit of the tree of life! Eat only Love! Love rules! Love heals! Love transforms! God is Love!
Love is the purest, highest, most radiant, pristine, white, clear, diamond Light that reflects in all facets as beautiful, jeweled, infinite-colored rainbows and rays of emanating, luminous, brilliant, blazing, numinous life!
This is the gospel according to Love!
