A Portal to help receive YOUR BREAKTHROUGH when Heaven and Hell invades the Earth
Become a Son of God!
First, we want to share our belief that Salvation is a miracle, a new birth of spiritual consciousness, the foundation and reclamation of one’s eternal spiritual existence. At the moment of accepting the gift of Salvation by the power of God through Christ Jesus one’s spirit-self overcome limited human understanding, false knowledge, and reasoning ability (human wisdom), whereby ego-self finally has to acknowledge that he/she [we] do not know as much as we thought we do, and that we are not in control of our own life as we planned. When we come to the end of self-sufficiency to shed off the pride of life made of ‘snakeskin’, allowing the death of ego, only then we recognize our need for the Lord’s Divine intervention who never meant for us to live without our loving Father’s ongoing support. Thus, we were so incomplete without Him as an empty shell without a pearl, compressed round about with feelings of insufficiency, unhappiness, failure, unloved-ness, and the myriad of negative feelings that caused us to finally turn to God for a solution..
God created us to spend eternity with us IN LOVE, not in turmoil, war, worry, despair, fear, depression, sickness, lack or desperate fight for survival, but in peace, joy and love. Life in this world as we know it is the life that Satan has created, a deception, a complete lie about who God is and it is not reality but an evil facade, for reality is God’s infinite, eternal love for us, that enables us to live an abundant free life in His Presence, the eternal absolute. Out of this awesome abundance of love, safety and provision of God towards us – which becomes our blessed assurance -, we are free to create our world with the unlimited power that God placed on the inside of us. Salvation is the beginning of recognizing this gift of abundance, with gratitude for raising us to life from the ashes of past life experiences, and grace empowerment by the indwelling all powerful Holy Spirit to become new creations in Christ Jesus (Christ like, having Christ consciousnesses), whereby we begin to shine His Light on the world not only for affirmation, but to share His Divine Light with all that is around us to benefit from our abundance.
In this recognition of Oneness, we begin to unify our world in love, whereas our very existence is the creative force of divine origin. God says, we are the highest level of His wonderful Creation, and thus, you were totally deceived believing any less of yourselves or others. You are a God-child from the beginning, who was lost but now found within yourself. Upon receiving Salvation The FULLNESS of Christ is in you, all that God can ever experience through you. Almighty God, being the One and only true God is longing for His Creation, longing for your return to His family, YOU, the apple of His Eye, the center of His Heart’s affection, to lock you into His Loving Arms of protection and provision. He has never-ever took His Eyes off of you in the past, present, and will never do in the future. God says, things that He turns His Eyes away from cease to exist. You are very much loved by our Father, so please read this prayer to Him from your heart!
“Dear Father God in Heaven, my Father, I come to You in the Name of Your Son Jesus Christ by whom You have made the way for me to return to You. I acknowledge that I have departed from Your eternal path of life, and that makes me a sinner, a lawless one by Your eternal Universal Laws. I have done many things that You would not approve, and I regret. Father, I am now sorry for my sin. I did not know it better at the time, please forgive me, and help me to forgive myself! I walked on a path away from You that is leading to death, and now I want to turn around completely, running to You.
From this day forward I want to turn from my sin to live in Your Holy Presence Father, trusting in Your goodness and ability to keep me safe and pure in the palms of Your Almighty Hands.
Romans 10:9 (NIV) If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
I understand that Your Holy Word says in Romans 10:9 that if I confess with my lips that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in my heart that You my Father God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved. I understand Father that He is the only way to You by His sacrifice. I confess by faith that Jesus Christ died on the Cross of Calvary and You have raised Him from the dead. I believe that His atoning Holy Blood is able to wash away my sins and the filth of the world, to give me abundant life.
I accept Jesus Christ into my heart as my Lord and Savior and believe that I Am Now Saved. I receive it with gladness, and begin to live my new life in Christ Jesus. I thank You Father for saving my soul, giving me eternal life, and understand that no one can take it from me ever.
Father! I thank You for Your Love, Forgiveness, and infinite Mercy. I believe that You love me unconditionally, rejoice in my return, and I want to live a life that is pleasing to You. I understand that You will walk with me and help me along the way. I receive Your Love by faith Father, knowing that it is true, even if I was unable to perceive it until now, living in that sin infested fallen world. I understand that my spiritual senses were oppressed and I lived a life of lie, not seeing who You really are, the only true God, my Creator and Father, who has created me to have an intimate relationship with You forever. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom of which Jesus Christ is duly authorized Sovereign Ruler! Thank You Jesus my Lord for Your sacrifice that has saved me from my sins. Lord Jesus, now I would ask You to fill me with Your Holy Spirit to begin my transformation into Your image, so that I may bring glory and honor to You alone, and not to myself. Amen.”
Hallelujah! – Highest Praise to God –
Welcome into the enormous Family of God!
Let me be the first to welcome you into the Family of God! YOUR NAME IS NOW WRITTEN IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE. THAT IS JESUS, YOUR KING, LORD, SAVIOR AND REDEEMER. You are my brother, you are my sister forever. I love you! Father loves you with an everlasting love! Jesus loves you and espouses you to be part of the Bridal Company in Christ. He will Redeem your soul and place you into an eternal glorious body prepared just for you. You will be your perfected self of today. Bless you forever.
You are now saved and no one can take it from you, sealed for the day of redemption. Only you could forsake your salvation by turning away from GOD and whoring after other gods (whatever takes the first place in your life before God becomes that another god or idle). UNTIL YOU FOLLOW AFTER GOD WITH A WHOLE HEART HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU TO WALK WITH HIM, AND HIS MERCY WILL COVER ALL YOUR MISTAKES, just as you would treat and nourish your own child, very lovingly. You will continue doing mistakes, may even fall as we all do, for none of us is perfect yet. When you do, just get up and go! God looks the intention of your heart and He is always there to set your feet on the Rock! He is all you even need to succeed. This is wonderful! You are wonderful in the Father’s Eye who made you for love, peace and joy in His Spirit.
Let us illustrate what just happened to you with a parable. The Spirit of God, our Guide WHO IS ACTIVE AND LIVING IN THE WORLD, said to one of our brother,
“I guide you and help you make those choices that helps you to know the Father and show you the right thing to do, but it is you who make the final decision on the choice you make. It is obvious that during your life, if you make choices that do not lead you in the right direction and if you Make continuously poor choices because it is your conviction to make those choices, then it is as if you took bad roads to get to your destination. Let me tell the story of a small salmon:
A salmon always born into a river on the far-side of the river from the sea. By instinct he knows that to survive he has to go to the sea and the shortest path is to follow the current of the river, because it is in the sea that he will continue to grow and not in the river, since he has no chance to survive it.
Along the way, he will have tests to pass, such as rapid currents, predators that try to eat him, and many other tests (as we humans should go through in life). At each test, he must take steps to overcome it and he knows instinctively what to do. When he made the right choices, he will pass through this ordeal and emerge strengthened.
It is also possible that the small salmon along the way, decided to go against the tide and go up the river, or take a junction for a smaller river that does not lead to the sea. If this little salmon chose these other paths, he will undergo further tests even more difficult (for us could be abuse, depression, addiction, greed, pride and many other detours) and it’s away more and more of the sea (of Love, God). But any time he can make new choices and return to the path of the river in the right direction. However if he continues to keep making choices that give him more and more trials to overcome and still away from the sea, then it is likely that it may never reach the sea (as very sadly, so many people get lost forever).
Then my son, life is like that, you have always choices to make, and sooner or later it is better to make the right choices. (the end)
How to Start Your New life?
1. Believe that you are ONE with God!
Cherish your salvation and relationship with the Lord more than anything! Rejoice! Get a Bible and consume it, for it is your Bread of Life and your brook of living waters in the Spirit, leading you to eternal life on the path of righteousness in Christ.
[ An Invitation to Abundant Life ] Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you that have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. (Isaiah 55:1)
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.(John 6:35)
As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God. (Psalms 42:1)
You feed your spirit self (inner man) with the Word of God and your flesh (natural body) with natural food (no GMO!). Enjoy both, but always remember that whichever you feed more will grow faster, and there is no way around it. There is no need for running from one person, preacher, revival to the next to learn how to walk close with God, just walk close with Him. It will take your whole, more then just running around.
Please understand that your transformation is instantaneous by receiving God’s Holy Spirit, but the manifestation of it is up to your measure of willingness to let go the old way of life. The surest way is not to monitor progress by consciousness as if in a competition, just let go and let God! The God in you have the same potential as God in Paradise, but you will have to unleash this potentiality by willful submission to God’s Will. Christ in you is your hope of glory. We are ‘dead in Christ’ when we have mastered to surrender self will to the Divine will, which is the only sensible choice when living in Christ consciousness.
Please also remember that Father God, Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit are One in essence, and we speak to them interchangeably, in other words, it is impossible for you to speak to One and not the Other at once. Father and Christ is IN you by and through Holy Spirit. Feel free to address the One your heart desires to speak to at the time, and never get confused on this issue. He is all that you ever need Him to be, mother, father, brother, helper, teacher, lawyer, and all the more. Satan loves to confuse us by forcing guilty thoughts (condemnation) upon our mind, saying, “you are not worthy, massed up, God is angry with you, He will not forgive”, end so on. but ALL is a lie. This is why so vitally important to know what the Lord says about us.
Psa 40:4 Blessed is the man that maketh Jehovah his trust, And respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
Psa 40:5 Many, O Jehovah my God, are the wonderful works which thou hast done, And thy thoughts which are to us-ward; They cannot be set in order unto thee; If I would declare and speak of them, They are more than can be numbered.
Although all members of the ‘Holy Trinity’ are Sovereign, they work together inseparably in ALL things for GOOD, always in agreement, always in harmony and perfect collaboration, not just on your behalf but every of their beloved Creation’s. They are out prime example how to uphold our relationship with God and ONE ANOTHER to the highest standard. Know that Jesus Christ is the actual Creator God of His Universe, of which this local Universe is the part of, He is your Creator Father, your eldest brother as to a Son of God, your Savior and Redeemer, your Lord, and the Ruler of the Universe. We go to the Father through Jesus Christ, He is the Way, and the Truth and Life for us, and will be for eons to come. The satanic world made a tremendous effort to discredit Him, His person, rule and sacrifice, but you stand firm in knowing who is your God!
Matthew 10:32 (KJV) Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
You may also want to study the book of Urantia, the truth book in continuation to the truth of the Bible, originated and written by universal personalities. It offers deep, advanced scientific and spiritual knowledge and revelation, and within gives a detailed account of Jesus’ earthly sojourn, life, mission, Crucifixion and Resurrection, His seventh and final bestowal mission of our Sovereign Creator God, Michael of Nebadon. Nebadon is the name of our Universe that includes over 10 million inhabited planets. Reading this book will solidify your faith in Christ Jesus and gives a powerful understanding and knowledge of the spirit realm, Universal organization and the Kingdom of God. Urantia book is the accepted textbook of the coming Kingdom Era, through this Millennium.
2. Be thankful always and give your worship to God!
23 Yet the time is coming, and is now here, when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit[i] and truth. Indeed, the Father is looking for people like that to worship him. 24 God is spirit,[j] and those who worship him must worship in spirit[k] and truth.” (John 4:23-24)
Thankfulness is your heart’s gratitude for God’s goodness and love. Worship means God is the first in your life, as we inevitably fall in love with Love during our wondrous times together. Worship is a lifestyle, not just celebration in a set time. Do all things intending to please God, follow Him, obey Him the best you can, and live an acceptable holy life in His Presence. Again, Holy Spirit gives you Grace to able to live by your heart intention. You will accomplish all by His grace empowerment, your part is to make up your mind and remember His Presence to involve Him in your daily life. When your heart is overflown with joy and gratitude for His goodness, you may want to sing praises to Him, dance for Him, clap your hands, play an instrument or lift up your hands in the sanctuary, just be free! God receives every form of worship from everyone. Let no one tell you how to worship God! That is your intimate time with God, sacred and very blessed.
3. Remember His Presence and Pray!
You can pray wherever you are, whenever you remember that God is right there with you. Prayer is talking to God either in your heart, in your mind or audibly, but because He is One with you by His Spirit, He knows all about you, knows all your thoughts and reads your heart. He knows what you will say before you would say it or think it. Why pray then? The Lord gave you free will that He would never violate, therefore you have to surrender your free will to God to ask His leadership and guidance, in order to receive. Unless you get into a destructive situation, or unseen danger, God will not intervene without your permission (asking).
Remember that God is all knowing, all powerful and that He has the best plan for your life, the only plan that will completely satisfy your heat and succeed without the ‘drama’ we were so used to in the world, because He has created you for that very purpose. Reaching destiny of Christ is what every one of His followers desire over the temptations and offerings of the whole world.
11 I know the plans I have for you,” announces the Lord. “I want you to enjoy success. I do not plan to harm you. I will give you hope for the years to come. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIRV) 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (KJV)
Keeping our eyes on God means a longing heart for Oneness, an attitude of faith, and walking in the Spirit of God (love, compression, goodness, kindness, .. (Gal.5:22-23)). God invites you to pray without ceasing, so that He could be included in all of your affairs, which is your best interest. Oneness with God gives you the liberty to pray in your heart, speak to Him in your mind, pray to Him on your knees in reverence, or scream to Him in time of distress. No matter what, He not only hears you, but He goes through every experience with you and goes before you to make the way for you. Praying 24.7 is of course impossible with words, but possible with a heart attitude. It is the same as being in love. When we are in love, we desire to share our heart and experiences with our beloved, no matter the circumstance, distance, or impossibilities.
Begin your prayer life with sharing all your thoughts, feelings, desires, worries, pain, hurt, disappointments of the past that is still lingering in your heart and ask the Lord to remove it from you. Talk to Daddy about your needs and believe that He will answer you in due time. Give God a change to talk back to you, sit in His presence and wait upon Him. Father has your best interest in His Heart at all times and would never stop working on your behalf. You have become a blessed child of God forever.
Once you are strengthened and at peace, start praying for others, which called intercession.
11 For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. 12 Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. 13 When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, 14 I will let you find me, says the Lord. (Jeremiah 29:11-14)
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Everything is possible for the person who believes!” (Mark 9:23)
That is to say, if you believe that God will do it for you, He surely will. So Believe!
4. Find a Church Family!
Find loving Christians to associate with, those who are helping and caring. You should find consolation, edification, encouragement, support, you should feel accepted and loved. Ask God which church is for you.
With the Kingdom coming and times are changing, we, all the children of God from all walks of life, from all religions will become Kingdom citizens and will no longer be called Christians. Know the spirit by the spirit. Associate with those who live in Christ consciousness and not in the spirit of Antichrist, and walk in the spirit of love to DO the Father’s will, not just talk about it. Depart from judgmentalness, criticism, negativity, high mindedness, any division, for the greatest in the kingdom if the servant of ALL, unconditionally. We are in the unique position to bring heaven to earth, to establish the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven. These will be intense times where every hidden things will be brought to light. We are diamonds in the raw, that you will see and recognize.
Congregations that make others feel unwelcome, lesser, judged, while themselves more anointed, more favored are not from God at all. Christians should be connected as one body for the glory of God, willing to lay down their lives for one another, and as persecution soon increases they will, says the Lord. They should and will abandon all doctrinal / denominational division. As in each family, there should be love, respect and order but not control. You can be the best Christian right now for all is by faith alone. There is no hierarchy or seniority, only faith. The anointing is the presence of the Holy Spirit manifesting through you. Since we all have received the Holy Spirit the manifestation lays in your relationship with God. The more you honor God the more it shows and the more others will honor you.
What if you still carry the marks of the past? Have you not been forgiven? And if you were forgiven, are you nor equal? Yes, you are equal and do not let anyone make you feel less then. You are the son of God and the more you identify with your new station in life, the more you become One with God.
Be ready to serve the Lord with other believers. This should be a daily part of Christian life, not a choir or program, thus I would not make it a separate point. We, the sons of God should walk and talk like sons of God, manifesting the nature and character of God everywhere we go. We are on a mission field all the time to tell about Salvation to others every opportunity we have.
Whoever is a believer in Christ is a new creation. The old way of living has disappeared. A new way of living has come into existence. (18) God has done all this. He has restored our relationship with him through Christ, and has given us this ministry of restoring relationships. (19) In other words, God was using Christ to restore his relationship with humanity. He didn’t hold people’s faults against them, and he has given us this message of restored relationships to tell others. (2 Cor. 5:17-19)
5. Get Baptized in Water!
That means immersion in water in the Name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. The purpose of it is to wash away the filth of the world from you so that you can enter the Kingdom of God. It is very important to the Lord that you get baptized. Even He was baptized.
Few churches offer water baptism nowadays and if that becomes a problem, ask your loved ones to do it for you in the bath tub or a nearby river. I would be concerned for a congregation that do not offer water baptism due to unbelief. The water is used in proxy of the Blood of Jesus Christ, just as grape juice often used in proxy of His Blood during communication. God is not looking for our adherence to religious protocol, He is looking at the HEART! Our heart however will set the boundaries for us to comply with God’s righteous laws out of the heart, our of reverence and love.
3 Jesus answered him, “Very truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above.”[b] 4 Nicodemus said to him, “How can anyone be born after having grown old? Can one enter a second time into the mother’s womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Very truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. 6 What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.[c] 7 Do not be astonished that I said to you, ‘You[d]must be born from above.’[e] 8 The wind[f] blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:3-8)
6. Get baptized in the Holy Spirit
Finally but most importantly, pray to God to fill you with His Holy Spirit. I pray that you would pay all attention to he Holy Spirit. Ask every day or as often as you need, for Holy Spirit is your fuel for life, the source of your life in the spirit. Think of yourself as a container, a vessel to be filled. You will use up the energy and need more and more, for everything you ever receive from God is coming to you through and by Holy Spirit. Again, it is very important to understand that FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT are inseparably ONE. They form the Holy Trinity (a rarely used man made but powerful expression) and do nothing without one another. They work in perfect harmony and you are unable to be closer to one then the other. Believe that when you pray, you will receive more and more of Holy Spirit!
Churches often baptize in the spirit by the laying of the hand but that is not necessary. The reason for laying of the hand is to increase your faith, knowing that you have received the Spirit through an anointed vessel, but will not the Father give you His Spirit that is One with Him? Of course He will, which is the only way to be in His Kingdom. He will more so give you His Spirit than anything, because without Holy Spirit we can only walk in the spirits of the world, God forbid! So be assured that it is your portion to be filled with God’s Holy Spirit overflowing, and then let Holy Spirit do the transformation in your life that only God can do. You cannot become either holy or godly without God Spirit in you. Walking in union with Holy Spirit – abiding – is what makes us sons of God. Some people puffed up for their anointing, but truly, pride is not God’s Spirit at all but Satan’s. Just believe and pray, and everything else will be added to you.
23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word. Then my Father will love him, and we will go to him and make our home within him.24 The one who doesn’t love me doesn’t keep my words. The words that you’re hearing me say are not mine, but come from the Father who sent me.
25 “I have told you this while I am still with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of everything that I have told you. 27 I’m leaving you at peace. I’m giving you my own peace. I’m not giving it to you as the world gives. So don’t let your hearts be troubled, and don’t be afraid. 28 You have heard me tell you, ‘I’m going away, but I’m coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I’m going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am.29 I’ve told you this now, before I leave, so that when I do leave, you will believe. 30 I won’t talk with you much longer, because the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me.[j] 31 But I’m doing what the Father has commanded me, to let the world know that I love the Father. Get up! Let us leave this place.” (John 14:23-31)
God’s Knowledge and Presence
1 Lord, you have examined me;
you have known me.
2 You know when I rest[a]
and when I am active.[b]
You understand what I am thinking
when I am distant from you.[c]
3 You scrutinize my life and my rest;[d]
you are familiar with all of my ways.
4 Even before I have formed a word with my tongue,
you, Lord, know it completely!
5 You encircle me from back to front,
placing your hand upon me.
6 Knowledge like this is too amazing for me.
It is beyond my reach,
and I cannot fathom it.
The Magnitude of God
7 Where can I flee from your spirit?
Or where will I run from your presence?
8 If I rise to heaven, there you are!
If I lay down with the dead,[e] there you are!
9 If I take wings with the dawn
and settle down on the western horizon[f]
10 your hand will guide me there, too,
while your right hand keeps a firm grip on me.
11 If I say, “Darkness will surely conceal me,
and the light around me will become night,”[g]
12 even darkness isn’t dark to you,
darkness and light are the same to you.[h]
13 It was you who formed my internal organs,[i]
fashioning me within my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you,
because you are fearful and wondrous![j]
Your work is wonderful,
and I am fully aware of it.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
while I was being crafted in a hidden place,
knit together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes looked upon my embryo,
and everything was recorded in your book.
The days scheduled[k] for my formation were inscribed,
even though not one of them had come yet.[l]
17 How deep[m] are your thoughts, God!
How great is their number!
18 Were I to count them,
they would number more than the sand.
When I awake, I will be with you.
19 God, if only you would execute the wicked,
so that[n] the men guilty of bloodshed would get away from me,
20 who speak against you with evil motives,
your enemies who are acting in vain.
21 I hate those who hate you, Lord, do I not?
I loathe those who rebel against you, do I not ?
22 With consummate hatred I hate them;
I consider them my enemies.
23 Examine me, God, and know my mind,
test me, and know my thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive tendency[o] in me,
and lead me in the eternal way.
You can ask the Lord to baptize you with fire; only if you want to be on fire for the Lord
For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. (Luke 12:48)
11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. (Mathew 3:11-12)
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: (1 Peter 1:6-8)
2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: 3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness. (Malachi 3:2-3)
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. … (Acts 2:1-3)
7. Walk in LOVE (charity)
1 Corinthians 1321st Century King James Version (KJ21)
13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not charity, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith so that I could remove mountains, but have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up; 5 doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Charity never faileth. But whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see through a glass, darkly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; but then shall I know, even as also I am known. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
The Way of Love
(The Message, MSG)
13 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. 2 If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. 3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love. Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
8-10 Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled. 11 When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good. 12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! 13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.
How to walk with God?
Congratulations! You just made the right choice and reached the Sea of Love! Never forget this story, for Salvation is like reaching the ocean, but how many turned back to the familiarity and temptations of the river (world), and drifted away from the Source of abundant life in the sea! Falling away is called apostasy. The world is in apostasy, but you came out of the world, now go and tell someone how to come out, for it does not take seminary to serve the Lord, it takes a willing heart. We all have to keep continue abiding in the Sea of abundant Love, safety and provision, helping other people to find the way to the sea, not alone, but together! The Lord’s Hear is broken over the lost. Whatever you do, do it as you do it for the Lord and let your light shine. The Light is on the inside of you, God’s Holy Spirit of LOVE. Amen
What does that mean to be the son of God?
