Love Conquers All

In the wake of the recent events that happened in Charlottesville, Virginia and Barcelona, Spain, our nation and the world must remember the principles of love. Love covers a multitude of sins (1 Peter 4:8) and restores the wrongdoers to their original state so that the healing process can begin (Galatians 6:1-2). No amount of evil can be tolerated or justified. We’re called to walk in the spirit of love toward every human being, regardless of race, gender, beliefs, political persuasion, or sexual orientation. We are called to love. Love without prejudices or political agendas, but to love as God loves the world. His love is unconditional. Just imagine the world that we’re leaving to our children and grandchildren. Are we leaving them a better world than the one we received from our parents? Are we preparing them to love everyone despite their lifestyle or the color of their skin? Are we preparing them to live in a diverse world with people of different beliefs, ideas, experiences, and lifestyles?

We’re all created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27), which revealed His glory. God created all nations from one blood. “From one man He made all the nations, which they should inhabit the whole earth; and He marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands” (Acts 17:26). God created us to be like Him, and being like Him is Love. Love is kind; love is not rude; love is not arrogant; love rejoices in the truth; love bears, believes, and endures all things; Love never fails (1 Corinthians 13).

America will never be great apart from love. No amount of money, education, or prestige can replace loving someone genuine. Yes, we have our preferences and opinions on matters that are near and dear to our hearts, but it doesn’t give us the right to force our beliefs or practices onto someone else. Let our differences be just that - Differences. Let not our disagreements turn into wrongdoing or acts of evil, which destroy the fabric of our Declaration of Independence. It reads, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Let us pursue faith, hope, and love, which love is the greatest (1Corinthian 13:13).

During Prayer this morning I asked "Father, what is the Alabaster box?" He answers: Alabasters box is a box of oil. It is the oils of love, joy, peace, happiness, shame, and guilt. These oils I use to heal the nations of their many hurts and shame.

Remember Mary? Yes Lord. She loved me with an everlasting love. She pours the oil on my feet to show her deepest sorrows that were buried deepest in her heart. I am the one who heals and restores those deepest desires that lie within you my bride. I love you so very much that your mind cannot comprehend it. I will show you this box and I will open it up within your heart; this will overtake you with much joy and you will never be the same again. My sweet bride go now and be at peace. I love you and I will never leave you or forsake you. 😍

Original is authentic to truth, 
It is the evidence of what is real
And it is the essence of attraction
The path of what seems surreal
 
Take into account the many acts of deception
What is considered absolute truth is based on false perception
The identity of self has been perpetrated
And still there is a call of God to be emancipated
 
To be truly free has been taken as an illusion
Individuals wander in absolute confusion
Leaving a notion that it can never be ascertained
Not understanding that freedom can certainly be gained
 
Every day is an opportunity to experience the freedom of God
There is a vast difference than being closed in like peas in a pod
It is and never was intended to live life as a fraud
But the walk, the talk, the thought is impure and flawed
 
What is freedom without being happy with self?
It is like life is constantly being controlled by a ref
God never intended for his children to be the same
Being an avatar has become the name of the game
 
So here it is then the truth about you
You have been anointed, appointed and chosen among the few
You were specifically created in God’s likeness and image
And you have been granted strength and power…like Popeye when he eats his spinach (Haha!)
 
God is the potter and you are the clay
So allow him to shape you in his own special way
Stop living your life trying to be like someone else
Be who God is creating in you for the days left
 
It is not about being like the pop star…
Superstar…or any other type of star…
It is about who God is, who Jesus is and spreading it afar
Worship God; humble yourself, summit fully to Him
And you will understand your uniqueness and know who you are
 
So again take into account the many acts of deception
What is consider absolute truth is based on false perception
Understand that the identity of self has been perpetrated
And there is always and still a call of God to be emancipated
Rise up, fly right and be free as an eagle
And know the power, strength and authority you possess is not illegal
Know and understand you are a King’s kid
And you have been given keys to the Kingdom because of what Jesus did

The Lord wants to talk about Obedience.

When we obey God, it is because we love Him and we respect Him with all our heart, mind and soul. Obedience is a choice to love God simply because you love Him and you do not want to disappoint Him in any way. Obedience is important because it shields you and protects you from the enemy. Obedience is that perfect, fenced in area that God has placed around you; however, if you choose to step outside the lines of protection, the enemy has every right to do as he pleases.

God cannot operate in the realm of rebellion! He cannot people. He is a Holy God, a righteous God! And He only operates in the realms of Holiness, Purity and Righteousness. These are the main facets of being obedient to your Creator. Remember; obedience protects and hides you from the attacks of the enemy. I love you all very much🙂. In Jesus Name Amen.

I thank God that seasons change! This is your due season. It has just begun. Your delay is not a denial. God's timing is right on time. Our time is not his time. Again, I say wait on God! For everything is inevitable with Jesus.

I know sometimes we think that he has forgotten us. Yet, right at this moment he is in Control of the situation already. It doesn't matter what your situation is. Just put your trust in him, and the rest will follow.  Don't allow what people say or the look they give you bother you. For your breakthrough is here!!!

I expect testimonies, just say "Jesus did it"!! I know if He did it for me, He will do it for you.

Amen. God bless you all.

It's time to do some self examinations. Starting with our hearts! Ask yourself, "Are my intentions and motives pure?" "Am I giving, loving, serving, worshipping, and praising from a place in my heart that is without bitterness, anger, frustration, malice, and discord?" I am learning that no matter how much you love God, and how much you love His people, YOU and I will not be able to serve Him and be about His business effectively until wee fix the matters of our Heart! How are we going to be able to show genuine love and compassion if our hearts are all jacked up??!! 

My prayer: God, anything that is not like you that is in us, we ask that you remove it right now. We want to be Your servants, but we can't operate effectively if our heart matters aren't resolved! Create in us a New, clean Heart. We know that "For as a man thinketh in his Heart, so is he." #Proverbs 23:7
