1ST JOHN 4:20-21 NKJV SAYS
IF A MAN SAY, I LOVE GOD, AND HATETH HIS BROTHER, HE IS A LIAR, FOR HE THAT
LOVETH NOT HIS BROTHER WHOM HE HATH SEEN. HOW CAN HE LOVE GOD WHOM
HE HAS NOT SEEN?
AND THIS COMMANDMENT HATH WE FROM HIM, THAT HE WHO LOVETH GOD LOVE
HIS BROTHER ALSO.
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS ITS EASY TO SAY, “I LOVE GOD”; AND ITS EASY TO
LOVE IN GENERAL. BUT HARD TO LOVE IN PARTICULAR; EASY TO LOVE, IN THEORY,
HARD TO LOVE IN PRACTICE.
BUT GENUINE LOVE IS ABOUT THE ONE WILLING TO ENTER OUR POVERTY AND
SUFFERING AND MAKE US RICH WITH LIFE.
IF WE BELONG TO THAT GOD, THEN WE WILL LOVE EACH OTHER REGARDLESS OF
HOW HARD LOVE IS FOR US.
BUT MY brothers and sisters scripture tells us that love is the very essence of who GOD is
(1John4:2-3)”THIS IS HOW YOU CAN RECOGNIZE THE SPIRIT OF GOD. EVERY SPIRIT THAT
ACKNOWLEDGES THAT CHRIST JESUS HAS come IN THE FLESH IS FROM GOD”... So if
you do not believe that He loves you unconditionally, you’ll never really know Him or have a genuine
peace about your relationship with him because God has to be true to HIMSELF.
People are foolish to entertain the hope that He will ignore justice and sacrifice holiness to
allow unbelievers into heaven. Living a mostly moral life will not satisfy a righteous JUDGE, NOR A
RIGHTEOUS GOD, YOUR SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL NOT GET YOU INTO HEAVEN.
AMEN! I KNOW THAT I’M RIGHT ABOUT IT AMEN!!!!
However, how do you define love? That means your actions have absolutely nothing to do with
THE love for you.
However, my brothers and sisters as much as the Lord loves us and desires to save us from
our sins, He cannot deny His holiness by accepting sin in his presence. The Father is pristine
perfection, a holy BEING, who by his very nature, must condemn all sin.
ARE YOU GOOD ENOUGH FOR GOD? WILL YOU EVER BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR GOD?
THE ANSWER IS NO! WE WILL NEVER BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR GOD! AND HE STILL
LOVES AS IF WE WERE FLAWLESS. HOW AMAZING IS THAT? WE MUST NEVER FORGET
JUST HOW MUCH HE LOVES US!
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHEN WE POINT TO CALVARY, THE PERFECTION OF
JESUS IS OUR ANSWER, TO GOD’S LOVE FOR US.
WE ARE FILTHY RAGS TO GOD, AND WE WILL NEVER BE GOOD ENOUGH UNTIL JESUS
COMES AND RECLAIMS US FOR THE NEW LIFE IN HIM!
Therefore, it is the height of egotism to think that God will bend both His law and his nature to
welcome one who still bears the stain of wrongdoing.
God’s commitment to us has absolutely no conditions or restrictions on whether we love him
back. Nor does he have more love for real people who may strike us as more worthy. He even
loves us in our sin, and even when we do not repent.
Every one of us needs a Savior, and his name is JESUS CHRIST.
The stain of sin is washed away only by the sacrifice of God’s holy and blameless Son. Those
believing are forgiven in CHRIST JESUS and cloaked in his righteousness (2 Cor.5:21).
I KNEW YOU BEFORE YOU WERE IN YOUR MOTHERS WOMB, EVEN BEFORE SHE
WAS THOUGHT ABOUT, EVEN BEFORE THE WORLD ITSELF, I KNEW YOU AND I LOVED
YOU THEN. I HAVE created YOU TO SHOW LOVE.
“THE LAMB WAS SLAIN, BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD” REV.13:8. THIS
MEANS THAT SIN HAD NOT BEEN COMMITTED AND GOD ALREADY forgave OUR SIN IN
ADVANCE OF THE SIN. THE SACRIFICE WAS ALREADY SLAIN! TAKE A MOMENT TO LET
THIS SINK IN!
THE LOVE OF GOD is INCOMPARABLE. HE PROVIDED A SCAPEGOAT, A SACRIFICE
FOR SIN EVEN BEFORE IT WAS COMMITTED. HE SAW FROM ETERNITY PAST WHAT
WOULD TAKE PLACE WHEN MAN WAS FALLING FOR THE TRAP OF SIN, SO HE
PROVIDED A SIN OFFERING OF HIMSELF, YES BACK IN ETERNITY.
THEREFORE, WE MUST KNOW THAT WHENEVER WE MAKE A MISTAKE, GOD HAS
ALREADY FORGIVEN US. WE MUST THEN ACCESS THAT FORGIVENESS THROUGH
CONFESSION AND REPENTANCE.
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, GOD WAS IN CHRIST JESUS RECONCILING THE
WORLD TO HIMSELF AND SO SAVING IT BY HIS LOVE AND SOVERNITY. IT COULD NOT BE
SAVED ANY OTHER WAY, BUT THROUGH HIM; THEREFORE THERE IS NO SALVATION IN
ANY OTHER WAY. AMEN!
IT GIVES US THE POWER TO LIVE HOLY LIVES, WALK OBEDIENTLY WITH HIM, LEARN
TO LOVE HIM THE WAY THAT HE DESERVES. Moreover, TO FOLLOW HIM IS TO RECEIVE
THE LOVE, HE HAS been OFFERING ALL ALONG.
EVERY SINGLE MOMENT AWAKE OR ASLEEP, WE WILL ALL LIVE UNDER THE LOVING
EMBRACE OF THE LORD’S WONDROUS, ABSOLUTE LOVE FOR US. However, TO entirely
EXPERIENCE THAT LOVE, YOU MUST RECEIVE IT, BECAUSE, AS YOU, GOD IS LOVE.
Jesus did the unpopular to accomplish the unforgettable, for your love. In one verse of twenty-
five words, Jesus explained the essence of His mission.
“FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT
WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE”.JN.3:
HE IS GOD’S SON, GOD’S LEADER, And OUR SAVIOR.
HE Loved US AND PROMISED NEVER TO LEAVE US OR TO FORSAKE US THE
PROMISE JESUS VOWED TO HIS FOLLOWER CHILDREN, “I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE
NOR FORSAKE THEE.”
THERE IS NO LESS THAN FIVE NEGATIVES TO CONFIRM THE pledge: THE TRUE
BELIEVER SHALL HAVE THE GRACIOUS PRESENCE OF GOD WITH LIFE, AT DEATH, AND
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS MAN CAN DO NOTHING AGAINST GOD, AND GOD CAN
MAKE ALL THAT MEN DO AGAINST HIS PEOPLE, TURN TO HIS HONOR.
I REPEAT, WHAT JESUS PROMISES, “NEVER, NO NEVER, NEVER, I WILL NEVER
LEAVE THEE ALONE OR FORSAKE THEE. “NO NEVER ALONE,” YOU WILL NEVER BE
ALONE.WHAT A PROMISE MADE IN HOLY BLOOD AND DIVINE LOVE FROM A FATHER TO
HIS BELOVED CHILDREN HALLELUJAH!
HE LOVED, AND THAT LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL IT IS UPON HIS NATURE RATHER
THAN OUR ACTIONS.1ST JOHN 4:16, HIS LOVE NEVER LEAVES US. “AND SO WE KNOW
AND RELY ON THE LOVE GOD HAS FOR US. GOD IS LOVE. WHOSOEVER LIVES IN LOVE
LIVES IN GOD, AND GOD IN HIM”.
HE SAYS THAT WE MUST LOVE THE SAVIOR SON, JESUS CHRIST AS WELL AS OUR
BROTHERS AND SISTERS. ARE YOU IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE WILL OF GOD? ARE YOU
GUILTY OF DISOBEDIENCE OF THIS DEMAND? IT IS A DEMAND YOU DO KNOW, DON’T
GOD KNOWS YOUR HEART, BUT HE ALSO KNOWS HIS WILL AND WILL NOT
COMPROMISE HIS WILL. YOU HAVE A CHARGED TO KEEP AND A GOD TO GLORIFY
CONDITIONALLY/ CONDITIONAL. THAT’S WHY JESUS CAME TO SET THE RECORD
STRAIGHT ON WHAT GOD REQUIRED FROM HIS CHILDREN SO WE COULD BE SAVED
THROUGH THE FINISHED WORK OF THE SAVIOR AND HIM ALONE.
