“As time goes on
Just what you mean
Now that you’re near
Promise your love
That I’ve waited to share
Of our moments together
Color my world with hope of loving you” ~Chicago
Love, as defined in this present dark world system, does disappoint, dashes hopes and dreams; empty words, empty promises, making the heart sick, broken, and despairing of life; BUT GOD! the hope of loving God, through truly loving Jesus, the True Love of the Living God pours into your heart by the Holy Spirit, and doesn’t disappoint (Romans 5:5).
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life” Proverbs 13:12
All the fullness of the law, prophesy, promises of God are fulfilled in Risen Glorified Jesus at the Right Hand of God our Abba Father; and we come to fullness of life IN CHRIST (Colossians 2:9-10) when we make Him the HEAD of our spirit and soul and body and life and relationship (Ephesians 5:23-32).
Through the Cross, Jesus was able to atone for sin, in his body, on the tree, so you might die to sin and come alive to righteousness, forgiven, saved, redeemed; repenting, turning from the past, returning to your True First Love, conquering unbelief in Jesus; conquering the temptations from the devil that encourage to twist definitions, confuse identity, distort feelings, pervert desires, and find love in all the wrong places, in all the wrong ways that hurt and harm, even as “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”
Just “trying to be a good person” is still eating of satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Ask God to take an axe to the root of sins, the old world tree, of the old covenant, under the god of this world who blinds minds, fathered by lies, with assignments of the enemy sent against you, and come to resurrected Jesus, the tree of life, the Vine of Christ flowing with the Water of Life, keeping you flourishing “drinking deeply with delight from the abundance of glory of Christ.” Christ remaining in you, afresh, anew, so rivers can flow from you; the Fountain of Life of Risen Christ flowing, filling, overflowing in and through you.
When you turn to the Lord the veil is lifted, unveiled to see the glory and be changing from one degree of glory to another by the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:14-18). “Perfect Love casts out all fear” (1 John 4:18) “When the Perfect comes the imperfect passes away” (1 Corinthians 13:10). “If you love Me, My Father will love you, and We will come to you and make our Home in you” (John 14:23). O taste and see! receive, encounter, and experience the Greater Love beyond knowledge, of the latter Rain, of the latter Glory of the Spirit of the Living God!
“Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, with instruction about ablutions, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. And this we will do if God permits. For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come” Hebrews 6:1-5
