FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD !
God just inpired me to write this awesome life changing word.
Be blessed by His holy counsel.
Do you understand His love?
Many do not know nor understand the ways and desires and heart of God because they don’t want to let go of their ways.
They want God to serve them and their lustful cravings and desires.
Many are in heart fellowship with themselves and consider not that the deepest desire of the heart of the Father is to capture and conquer the hearts of His children.
I never quite understood the following scripture in Romans 5:5, until He confronted me through a divine encounter.
“And hope makes not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who is given unto us.”
This encounter was His great mercy upon my life as He came to liberate my rebellious and idolatrous heart.
I was lying in my bed being angry at Him because I was still single and I was fed-up with the wilderness experience of my walk which is the dry season in our journey with God by which we are stripped of our own ways to understand and be brought into His ways.
It is a season where the fleshly passions get dried up so that you may discover the TRUE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATER.
God is your personal Oasis and Living Treasure and He wants you to discover that. He 2 wants to show you that nothing can satisfy you like himself because He created you for himself.
It is amazing how easy it is to expose a persons heart by putting pressure on him and the Lord knows exactly what to do to expose you to yourself. This is very good medication to heal the corruption of our sinful hearts.
As I was lying in my bed, drowning in my own personal pity party being deceived by my fleshly desire for a wife because I thought marriage was what I needed to be content and fulfilled at that stage of my life and it was my deepest desire, suddenly like a mighty rushing wind the Father, Jehovah God Almighty showed up in Person in my room.
His power took a hold of me and I ended up flat on my face in His Presence as if I was Adam returning to dust.
He completely overwhelmed me with His awesome holy love and I broke out in tears as I found myself weeping like a child.
Then Almighty God started to speak. His voice burned like fire through me and the ecstasy of His divine love completely overwhelmed me. I was undone in the Presence of my Maker.
The Father spoke with a divine passion and intensity and as those words went through my entire being I found myself swallowed up and lost in the meaning and reality of what God was saying.
He said; “find the deepest desire of any man and you shall discover his god, the true object of his worship, adoration and affection.”
Then He asked me; How can My love be shed abroad in your heart by My Spirit when your heart is so full of desires for other things?
Then He showed me a cup and said; How can I fill a cup when it is already full?
Then the Father said something so profound, so deep, so awesome and completely mindblowing that years later even today I am still overwhelmed and stunned every time I think of it; “My only quest and deepest desire has always been, just to capture the heart of man.”
He showed me a powerful vision of Jesus on the cross and the Father stood behind that cross with open outstretched arms according to Romans 8:32 He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things?
But then He instructed me to look through His gift and recognize the heart of the Giver.
It’s easy to learn to speak the religious Christianese language of the letter of the text, yet it’s quite a different story to be brought into the actual experience and reality of the spoken word which only God can make alive in you through a deep heart fellowship in such a way that you can give faithful testimony of the meaning of scripture because you’ve been confronted and exposed by Him and shown the error of your ways.
After all is He not the Author of His inspired book.
It is not what we read in the Bible that makes us holy and pleasing to God.
It’s what you allow Him to work into you until you reflect the likeness, the character and the image of His Son, which himself is the Word, until He has made you a rare expression of His truth.
He desires to make His word come alive in you because that’s how He sets up residence inside of us.
John 14:21 He that has My commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves Me: and he that loves Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
22 Judas said unto Him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that You will manifest yourself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man loves Me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him, and make Our abode with him.
Are we the dwelling and resting place of a holy God or are we the habitation of devils, distracted by things that we love and are devoted to which becomes the idols that we esteem, pursue and worship?
Any person or thing that you place above God shall be the object of your affection and the idol that you worship.
Ezekiel 14:3 “Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I consult with them in any way?
4 Therefore speak to them and tell them that this is what the Lord GOD says: ‘When any Israelite sets up idols in his heart and puts a wicked stumbling block before his face, and then comes to the prophet, I the LORD will answer him according to his great idolatry,
5 so that I may take hold of the hearts of the people of Israel. For because of their idols, they are all estranged from Me.’
6 Therefore tell the house of Israel that this is what the Lord GOD says: ‘Repent and turn away from your idols; turn your faces away from all your abominations.
There are many who claim to be the people and children of God yet they walk and live in heart fellowship with the things of the world which pollutes their hearts and minds.
A non believer lives contrary to God and are in pursuit of the world whereas the true believers pursue God through a living practical active faith.
To be acceptable to God is to walk away from the defiling influence of the world for it is written in 2 Corinthians 6:
Do Not Be Unequally Yoked
14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness?
15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
16 What agreement can exist between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be My people.”
17 “Therefore come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.”
18 And: “I will be a Father to you, and you will be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
Hearing and Doing
19 My beloved brothers, understand this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger,
20 for man’s anger does not bring about the righteousness that God desires.
21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and every expression of evil, and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save your souls.
22 Be doers of the word, and not hearers only. Otherwise, you are deceiving yourselves.
23 For anyone who hears the word but does not carry it out is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror,
24 and after observing himself goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
25 But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom, and continues to do so—not being a forgetful hearer, but an effective doer—he will be blessed in what he does.
26 If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not bridle his tongue, he deceives his heart and his religion is worthless.
27 Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
