LOVE YOUR ENEMIES



Love one another, for love is of God. I am certainly learning how to love. It is not easy loving greedy, self seeking individuals... not easy at all. But love is not something we feel, it's something we do. In this life we are promised trials, and it seems the enemy is turning up the heat the closer we get to Africa. 

Lord God, help me love like you do.

Luke 27-36

27 “But I say to you who hear,sLove your enemies, tdo good to those who hate you, 28 ubless those who curse you, spray for those who abuse you. 29 vTo one who wstrikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic2 either.30 xGive to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back.31 And yas you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.32 z“If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.34 And aif you blend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. 35 But clove your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and dyou will be sons ofethe Most High, for fhe is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. 36 gBe merciful, even as hyour Father is merciful.

  1. The following is a prime example of the love The Messiah had for the religious ones, those who "loved this world and their own life in it", during the time He walked upon the face of the earth. (John 12:25)
    ------------
    Mat 23:13-35 - "But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you shut up The Kingdom of Heaven against men, for you don't go in yourselves, and when others try to enter in, you seek to prevent them.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayer, therefore you shall receive the greater damnation.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you compass sea and land to make one convert, and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell that you yourselves are.

    Read the rest of The Messiah's testimony concerning the religious ones in "The Word of Truth".
    ------------
    YES! The Messiah LOVED them!

    He LOVED them enough to tell them The TRUTH even though He knew they wanted to kill Him!

    And so it remains unto this day.......

    For the religious ones, and the religious systems that bind them in the chains of strong delusion, but carry on the legacy of the pharisee's!

    They still seek and desire to crucify The Truth.......

    Yet, Thankfully Truth Will Always Rise Again!

    ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our Father and GOD!

    For there is but One "Pure Religion and Undefiled"! (James 1:27)

    http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

    Simply, ALL other religion IS "IMPURE AND DEFILED"!

    "Come out from among them and be separate!" (II Corinthians 6:17)

    For history has revealed, and continues to reveal, that multiplied BILLIONS have been killed and enslaved (in physical chains at times, yet primarily in the chains of strong delusion that are the commandments and doctrines of men) in the name of the god(s) of this, or that religion!

    Proving the fruit of death and enslavement are bore of religion's way,
    for life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play!
    Yet, because of pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters "The Way of Truth is evil spoken"! (II Peter 2:1-3)

    So it is that The Call of The ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD(SPIRIT) and FATHER(CREATOR) of ALL yet needs be resounded again, and again;

    "Come out of her (babel/dis-order/babylon\world\religion), MY people!" (Rev 18:4)

    For "The WHOLE world (not just a portion), and ALL religious systems, are under the control of the evil one!" (I John 5:19)

    And YES! Atheism is a religion as well, for it's adherents see their self-serving god each and every time they view their reflected "image"!

    Simply, The Faithful will not create a religion, because The Faithful ARE Family.......

    The Family of "Our Father and GOD", "of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"! (Ephesians 3:15)

    http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

    And NEW "Jerusalem which IS above IS free and IS !NOW! the mother of us all (children of Our Father and GOD)"! (Galatians 4:26)

    So it is that the brethren of The Messiah choose to remain but "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth" for we have REALized that our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven" and that soon, and very soon, we will be taken Home, Home at last....... (I Peter 2:11, Hebrews 11:13, Philippians 3:20 John 14:2-3)

    Till then:

    The children of "Our Father and GOD" REALize evermore of how truly "poor and needy" they are! (Psalms 70:5)

    So it is that we "cry unto HIM day and night"....... (Luke 18:7)

    Father Help! and HE does.......
