Love and the Centrality of the Holy Spirit
« on: October 16, 2012, 09:24:58 AM »
It's not meant for men's minds to figure out every detail of truth.  The Holy Spirit was given for us to love one another.

The Holy Spirit is the secret for followers of Jesus words to not become a minor philosophic byline abandoned in the gutter of history.

The Holy Spirit operating in our lives is the key to being fulfilled with His knowledge, life and direction. 

In the glory we are transformed by the Spirit into the same image.

2 Cor 1217-18 (CLT)
17 Now the Lord is the spirit; yet where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
18 Now we all, with uncovered face, mirroring the Lord's glory, are being transformed into the same image, from glory to glory, even as from the Lord, the spirit.

I went to church; but, the Church wasn't on the program!  JESUS WANTS HIS BODY BACK!!  MEET WITHOUT HUMAN HEADSHIP!!!

A scriptural meditation on Love and the centrality of the Holy Spirit

1 John 4:6b-21

6b  Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error

7    Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

8   He that loveth not, knoweth not God; for GOD IS LOVE.

9   In this way was manifested the love of God towards us, because God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

10  Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

11  Beloved, if God loved us, we ought to LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

12  No man hath seen God at any time.  If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

13  Hereby know we that we dwell in him and he in us, BECAUSE HE HATH GIVEN US OF HIS SPIRIT.

14  And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

....

19  We love him, because he first loved us.

20  If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

21  And this commandment have we from him, THAT HE WHO LOVETH GOD LOVE HIS BROTHER ALSO.


=====
John 16:13
When the Spirit of truth is come, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL truth....

the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth=God is love

o yes...that spirit guided me into the extent of that LOVE...the ALL TRUTH OF HIS LOVE...even

  His salvation of ALL MEN in His love...  I love my brothers who for all their life in this world were held

 captive and blind by the prince of this world....I rejoice Jesus will seperate them from their

  sin and take all their sin away.  IS IT LAWFUL[LOVE] TO KILL OR TO HEAL ON THE SABBATH?

   WHY SHOULDN'T THOSE WHO HAD BEEN BOUND ALL THEIR LIVES ON EARTH BE SET FREE?

   NOW,HE WHO SUPPLIES SEED TO THE SOWER AND BREAD FOR FOOD,WILL ALSO SUPPLY

  AND INCREASE YOUR STORE OF SEED, AND WILL ENLARGE  THE HARVEST OF YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS

    SPIRITS OF JUST MEN MADE PERFECT


   REMEMBER THIS,WHOEVER SOWS SPARINGLY WILL REAP SPARINGLY..AND WHOEVER SOWS

  GENEROUSLY WILL REAP GENEROUSLY.  EACH MAN SHOULD GIVE WHAT HE HAS DECIDED IN

 HIS HEART TO GIVE, NOT RELUCTANTLY OR UNDER COMPULSION,FOR GOD LOVES A

  CHEERFUL GIVER.

  AND...GOD IS ABLE..TO MAKE 'ALL' GRACE ABOUND TO YOU,     SO THAT....

   IN ;ALL' THINGS......AT 'ALL' TIMES..HAVING 'ALL' THAT YOU NEED.................

     YOU WILL ABOUND IN EVERY 'GOOD' WORK......

   HE HAS SCATTERED ABROUD HIS GIFTS TO THE POOR; HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS ENDURES FOREVER

What if a person gives absolutely, totally, nothing?
Receives nothing?
1 Timothy 2:3-4  ...God our Savior;  Who will have all men to be saved...
John 12:47  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
Romans 4:5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous ...

well Jesus said...'he who does not have..even what he thinks he has..he will lose"....

   this can apply to 'righetous works"...become a clanging cymbol without love.......

   there is nothing 'deader" than religion that neither loves God nor man...

   'WHAT HE HAS DECIDED IN HIS HEART" EQUALS LOVE MOTIVATION

  A PERSON THAT GIVES ABSOLUTELY TOTALLY NOTHING WOULD BE AN EXAMPLE OF THE

  OFFSPRING OF VIPER SPIRIT..BECAUSE LOVE.....GIVES..

   THE SCRIPTURES ARE FUL OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THIS EVIL/CONTRAST SPIRIT...

   JUDE...LACKING NATURAL AFFECTION[LOVE]...LOVE IS THE ROYAL LAW OF THE SPIRIT...

  IT'S EITHER THERE OR NOT..LOVE HAS A DISTINCT IMPULSE OF IT'S OWN....JUST AS

  EVIL DOES

   HE WHO IS FORGIVEN MUCH..LOVES MUCH..HE WHO IS FORGIVEN LITTLE..LOVES LITTLE

in the parable of the talents, the one who gave nothing received "kolassis"- correction.
