The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.Psalms 19:7‭-‬11 KJV

True Love In Our Generation 


*1 Corinthians 13 for Today*
Jesus gave us the key to happiness and harmony when He said, _“Love your neighbor as yourself.”_ What exactly does that mean, in practical, everyday terms? One of the best explanations ever given is found in the Bible’s “love chapter,” 1 Corinthians 13. Times and terms have changed, but the underlying principles are as true as ever. Here’s how the apostle Paul might have put it if he were writing to us today.
1. Though I can speak five languages and talk intelligently on dozens of subjects, if I don’t have enough love to keep from gossiping or putting down others, I’m not just making so much useless noise, I’m being downright destructive.
2. And though I read the Bible regularly and even know parts of it by heart, and though I pray daily and have a lot of faith and other spiritual gifts, if I don’t have enough love to sometimes sacrifice some of my personal desires for others’ sakes, then all of my “spirituality” amounts to nothing.
3. And though I work two jobs to provide for my family, and though I give to charity and volunteer for every community project that comes up, if I don’t show love and kindness to those I live and work with, all my hard work and self-sacrifice are worthless.
4. Love has a long, hard, frustrating day at the office, yet doesn’t get snappy and short tempered. Love is happy for the other guy when he gets all the breaks. Love doesn’t have to drive the flashiest car, live in the biggest house, or have all the latest gadgets. Love doesn’t always have to be the boss or have the last word.
5. Love isn’t rude or crude, isn’t selfish, and doesn’t gripe or pressure others to get what it wants. Love is too busy being concerned about the needs of others to spend much time worrying about its own. Love doesn’t freak out when things don’t go its way. Love is quick to believe the best about people and slow to believe the rest.
6. Love hates to hear gossip and instead wants only to talk about others’ good qualities and the good that they’ve done. Love knows that what it listens to, watches, or reads will affect its attitudes and actions and thereby have an effect on others, so it’s careful about how it spends its time.
7. Love is flexible, takes things in stride, and can handle whatever comes its way. Love is always ready to give others the benefit of the doubt and looks for the best in them. Love wants to see others reach their full potential and does all it can to make that happen. Love never runs out of patience, even with those who are slow to get with the program or do their share. Love doesn’t keep looking at its watch when others are talking.
8. Love never fails. I fail others, and others can fail me. We all can be mistaken, misguided, or confused at times. Our words and deeds often fall short, and our bright ideas don’t always play out the way we want or expect them to.
9. We’re frail, fallible, and often foolish, and our understanding of the world we live in, not to mention the world to come, is only partial at best.
10. But when God’s Spirit of love lives in us, that changes everything.
11. We’re really just children when it comes to practicing real love, but God can help us outgrow our childish ways.
12. Without Him we’re clueless when it comes to love and the other things that matter most in life, but when we live in His kingdom—the kingdom of Heaven that Jesus said is even now within us—we can see things as He does, get our priorities straight, pull out the stops, and live and love to the full.
13. There are lots of nice things in life and lots of good things, but none are as good or as important as love!
*Love power* : _There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal. No door that enough love will not open, no gulf that enough love will not bridge. No wall that enough love will not throw down, no sin that enough love will not redeem. It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. Sufficient love will dissolve it all._ – Emmet Fox
*Further Readings*
Colossians 3:14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
1. John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

Nothingness Without This Factor


Good Morning. Seasons Greetings. Please let’s Share:

Exo 3:2 “And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed”

 

Some hours ago I was going through the new music video I’ll be releasing later this week (EMI O MO, -MYSTERY) and a scene caught my attention there. It was the scene of Moses and the burning bush. I have since been meditating on it. The most amazing part of this history is that the bush was burning and was not consumed. Now Moses saw real fire but moving nearer he saw green leaves, the bush untouched. I call this the suspension of natural law of cause –effect.

 

I believe that there is an unseen “factor” or “force” behind what we call normal or natural cause and effect. When a bush is set on fire especially in the wilderness, the immediate impact is burning to ashes. Just like 1+1 is always 2. Just like if water pour on your body you will be wet. We don’t pray for 1+1 to become 2 neither do you pray for your cloth to get wet in the rain. But from this miracle we found that such consistent order could be reversed, so that 1+1 refuse to sum up to 2. I conclude therefore that what we call natural and normal has been consistently held together in their functioning by God’s authority of unfailing order by which he created the universe (“God Factor”). The consistency of this authority over the years turns it to the natural law upon which science is based. But God can also withdraw that force so that that which is normal can suddenly become unexplainably abnormal.

 

It is not a surprise that natural laws of cause-effects rarely fails in the case of non-human objects because they don’t offend God. But in the case of man, the law is rather erratic. How the most brilliant students fail exam, the best staff never promoted, obeying the principle of healthy life, yet sick, working hard still poor. For man it is as if there is no natural law for success outside the “God factor”. “the race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all” eccle 9:11

 

The withdrawal of “God factor” in the life of a man turns his RIGHT efforts to produce very WRONG and even punishable result. When God wants to deal with his enemy, he suspends his “authority of unfailing order” so that what ordinarily has been working for them begins work against them. Ps 3:7 says “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil”. Never be so sure you know what you are doing to neglect God in your endeavors. Because if God remove his grace from your plan, your wisest step may turn to be the stupidest action. “He frustrates the devices of the crafty, so that their hands achieve no success” (Job 5:12). In fact God’s disinterest in a matter reverses the order for achievements so that the best plans leads to the most fatal failure.

While God created the natural laws as principles for living, he has also chosen to suspend these law to favour his children and to destroy his enemies. “I have made the earth, the men and the beasts which are on the face of the earth by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and I will give it to the one WHO IS PLEASING IN MY SIGHT (Jere 27:5). “ To the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men” Dan 4: 17
What he did at the burning bush he did for the 3 Hebrew boys. Those who threw the boys into fire were roasted but the “God factor” came bodily in to the fire and the boys “walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed” (Dan 3:25).The fire lost its power for burning because of them!

 

Ahithophel is the best political consultant of his days. His counsel is beyond professionalism to Spiritism because they always work like the gods. But Ahithophel made the mistake to use his intelligence against David. Trust David, he looked for the right prayer point “”LORD, turn Ahithophel’s counsel into foolishness” (2 Sam 15:31). That is, Lord, remove your “authority of unfailing order” and the “God factor” from Ahithophel’s consultancy so that what has worked consistently will fail unexplainably. And so it was. Ahithophel had to commit suicide because of shame.

 

Even when nature points to death our God can give life, even in the midst of abject poverty and recession he can make rich (Deut 32:29). “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee (Isa 43:2)

It means God is suspending the submerging power of the waters and the burning effect of the fire because of you. I can boldly say then that that sickness will not kill you. That case will not send you to prison, that debt will be paid, that conspiracy against you shall not stand, that marriage problem will not end in divorce, that evil medical report shall be of none effect in Jesus name. Because the lord is withdrawing the ability of negative impact from your situation, you will come out of that situation unhurt in Jesus name.
