When we love

I was contemplating what to share this month, and realized that I needed to re-emphasize something about love. It seems everyone I talk to battles in this area of love. They either are afraid of love, to receive love, or don't know what it looks like. Many who had no father growing up, doesn't have a POR (Point of Reference) to guage what love is or isn't. Many had a father, but never felt loved, so again, no POR. Only God is our POR. We have to guage everything by what the Bible says, not by our own experiences and relationships, for they are flawed. Only perfect love casts out all fear and torment.

In ministry, most of the time, I'm always dealing with people's fear. It comes in so many disguises too. And even after ministry, time and time again, a person is still stuck in this area of love. I believe it's becuase we have made it so difficult, and complicated the simplicity of the Gospel, that we "think" there is more to receiveing God's love than to just accept it and receive it! Accept what Jesus did, then receive what Jesus did. You cannot pay for your sins!!! No matter how much you try. Only Jesus paid for them. And fear comes when we are still "stewing in our juices." In other words, sins have not been confessed.

Then there are others who have confessed their sins until they are blue in the face, yet still not finding peace from fear. It's becuase they are at a "works" level and using the Word as a formula. People say, "If I confess my sins, then I'll be free from anxiety and fear." Not necessarily, because along with that is "receiving" forgiveness and "receiving God's perfect love." It works at the same time.

So how do you receive God's perfect love? You can read about it on the website teaching under God's love, but let me give a brief update here.

1) Acknowledge His love for you

2) Accept his love for you

3) Receive his love for you (Return to your first love - God)

4) Thank him for loving you

5) If there are any thoughts that do not line up with his love, cast it out and ask for MORE of His love to fill you

6) Choose you this day whom you will listen to. "For me and my house, we will serve the Lord." This means, you will only listen to the Father's voice! Who is your daddy? The Bible says that if you listen to the devil and his lies, he is your daddy!

That's as plain as I can put it.

I hope this helped you a bit to come to grips on how easy it is to be filled with God's love that casts out all fear and torment.

2 Corinthians 11:3
"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."

When we love we fulfill all the law and the prophets, and there is NO room for fear! Because we fulfill the law and the prophets! There is no other way to say it, but as simple as that. So we know when we are in fear of any kind, whether it's dread, anger, resentment, unforgiveness, or fear itself, we are not fulfilling the law of love! The Bible says that to fulfill the law is to love... love God, ourselves and others. And we can only do that if we are also willing to forgive.

This ministry focuses mainly on Love and Forgiveness, because that is the foundation for every believer. If you are still struggling in your life, I guarantee, there is a dis-connect in these two areas...

Opening Heavens Gates

I am in the process of writing a teaching that is called "Opening Heaven's Gates." How can we have heaven on earth, afterall, the Lord's prayer says it is possible! "Let it be done on earth as it is in heaven." So, we need to discover how this happens. There are 5 things I believe that will open the gates of heaven and pour you out a blessing... I call 4 of them hinges of the doors, and one is the key for the door knob. The four hinges are: Love and forgiveness -- Believe and Receive. And the "key" for the doorknob is "revelation." In order to live IN the blessings from Heaven, we need to understand love AND forgiveness. In Mark 12:........ When Jesus was explaining the first and greatest commandment. The man he was talking to, repeated it back but also added, "understanding" love. And Jesus said, "You are not far from the Kingdom of Heaven." We need to understand what all these things mean, so that "revelation can come" and open the door to our hearts, so that we can experience all God has for us.

So keep an eye out for this teaching, I'll make it available on the teaching's page. But in reality, everything taught on this site undergirds this insight, it's just that it is being taught from a different angle. Even the article before it is part of this insight - concerning "love."
