8 WAYS THAT LOVE IS GOOD - How To Recognize Love - Part VII

It should be quite obvious that human love without the divine element does not sufficiently meet the needs of the human heart. It is not strong enough or pure enough to take the place of the love Jesus. Consequently, when Christ is left out of the experience of love, there is always a sense of lack. True love...real pure love is always of divine origin. Even the human love that we express is only possible because of the working of divine influences...

God is love (1 John 4:8)

This is the key to understanding love.

IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND WHAT LOVE IS LIKE WE NEED ONLY TO STUDY WHAT GOD IS LIKE. WE LEARN THE DIFFERENT WAYS THAT LOVE IS GOOD BY LOOKING AT THE WAYS IN WHICH GOD IS GOOD.

8 WAYS THAT LOVE IS GOOD

IT IS MELTING AND TRANSFORMING

(Therefore if any man [be] in Christ , [he is] a new creature : old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5: 17) (But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory 2 Corinthians 3:18)

Love works not for profit nor reward..It is diffusive in its nature and quiet in its operation, yet strong and mighty in its purpose to overcome great evils. It is melting and transforming in its influence.. Love softens and beautifies its object and its subject; both the giver and the receiver.

IT IS HUMBLE

(Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: Matthew 11: 29) (Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:4)

One of the chief characteristics of true love is humility.

It is not puffed up. (1 CORINTHIANS 13:4) This means having a modest estimate of oneself. Not a high estimate nor a low estimate of one’s personal value.

IT IS SIMPLE

(For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16) (Except ye be converted , and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3)

Pure love is simple in its operations and is distinct from any other principle of action.

Simple - easy to understand or to do.

When the principle of pure love is working in a person’s heart, that person is not confusing or complicated to understand.

IT IS CALM, DEEP, WISE AND UNDERSTANDING

(Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: Mark 10:21) (Great [is] our Lord, and of great power: his understanding [is] infinite. Psalms 147: 5)

True love is not a strong, fiery, impetuous passion. On the contrary, it is calm and deep in its nature. It looks beyond mere externals, and is attracted by qualities alone. It is wise and discriminating, and its devotion is real and abiding.

Is there such a thing as love at first sight ?

True love has an intellectual basis,

a deep thorough knowledge of the object loved.-1

-1 (As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: John 10:15) (But if any man love God, the same is known of him. 1 Corinthians 8:3) (He that loveth not knoweth not God; 1 John 4:8) (I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. John 10:14)

You may have heard of the phrase, “love at first sight”. It is not possible to have a deep thorough knowledge of someone whom you have just met or seen for the first time without prior correspondence or communication with that person. A deep thorough knowledge of someone can only be gained during frequent sessions of quality time with that person by deliberate and consistent planning for it. Knowledge of someone places them in our thoughts. Thoughts and feelings are closely connected. If the thoughts are rightly disciplined, it will be a far less difficult task to control the feelings. If the thoughts are wrong the feelings will be wrong.

When a deep, thorough knowledge of the object loved does not supply the thoughts, the intellectual basis for true love cannot be established. However, real feelings can be established quite easily and will sometimes act as a substitute for the intellectual basis. A false love experience based exclusively on those feelings will usually follow.

By the grace of God, we will continue to study these things in another post. I hope you are tremendously blessed this weekend.

NATURAL REMEDIES - Specific Herb Uses - Part III

For by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. Revelation 18:23

In the book of Revelation in the Bible, the word sorceries comes from the greek word - pharmakeia

The word pharmakeia is where we get our word pharmacy from. Here is the entry in the Strong's Bible concordance.

AV - sorcery 2, witchcraft 1; 3

1) the use or the administering of drugs
2) poisoning

According to the Bible, in the last days, many people will be deceived and poisoned by a modern form of sorcery called drug medication. Drugs never cure. They only change the form and the location of the disease.

With the love of Christ, I have to use some straight language today for the sake of the uninformed. Check out these thoughts from the pen of another Christian writer concerning drug medication.

"The human family have brought upon themselves diseases of various forms by their own wrong habits. They have not studied how to live healthfully, and their transgression of the laws of their being has produced a deplorable state of things. The people have seldom accredited their sufferings to the true cause--their own wrong course of action. They have indulged in intemperance in eating, and made a god of their appetite. In all their habits they have manifested a recklessness in regard to health and life; and when, as the result, sickness has come upon them, they have made themselves believe that God was the author of it, when their own wrong course of action has brought the sure result. When in distress, they send for the doctor, and trust their bodies in his hands, expecting that he will make them well. He deals out to them drugs, of the nature of which they know nothing; and in their blind confidence they swallow anything that the doctor may choose to give. Thus powerful poisons are often administered, which fetter nature in all her friendly efforts to recover from the abuse the system has suffered; and the patient is hurried out of this life."
{RHA151899 par. 1}

"This is not always the result which follows the doctor's drugging. Sick people who take these drug-poisons do appear to get well. With some, there is sufficient life-force for nature to draw upon, to so far expel the poison from the system that the sick, having a period of rest, recover. But no credit should be allowed the drugs taken; for they only hindered nature in her efforts. All the credit should be ascribed to nature's restorative powers." {RHA151899 par. 4}

DIVINE LOVE - How To Recognize Love - Part VI

(THE LOVE OF JESUS)

I am trying something different with this post. I want you to see if you can find these principles in the Bible yourself and I will post the ones that I have later.

How will we recognize the love of CHRIST ? How will we know whether we or anyone else claiming to be a Christian is revealing this love ? What does it mean to love as CHRIST loved ?

Love does good and nothing but good. The Bible speaks about How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good...(ACTS 10:38) Some Christians mistakenly believe that they must have “feelings of love” for others in order to love like Jesus. This is not true. Good and pleasant words and actions reveal the Spirit of Christ.

4 statements from the pen of an inspired writer help us to understand the love of JESUS and how it does good.

1. To love as Christ loved means to manifest unselfishness at all times and in all places, by kind words and pleasant looks.

2. Christlike love places the most favorable construction on the motives and acts of others. It does not needlessly expose their faults; it does not listen eagerly to unfavorable reports, but seeks rather to bring to mind the good qualities of others.

3. The love which Christ diffuses through the whole being is a vitalizing power. Every vital part‑‑the brain, the heart, the nerves‑‑it touches with healing. By it the highest energies of the being are aroused to activity. It frees the soul from the guilt and sorrow, the anxiety and care, that crush the life forces. With it come serenity and composure. It implants in the soul joy that nothing earthly can destroy,‑‑joy in the Holy Spirit, health ‑giving, life‑giving joy.

4. Christ's love is deep and earnest, flowing like an irrepressible stream to all who will accept it. There is no selfishness in His love. If this heaven-born love is an abiding principle in the heart, it will make itself known, not only to those we hold most dear in sacred relationship, but to all with whom we come in contact. It will lead us to bestow little acts of attention, to make concessions, to perform deeds of kindness, to speak tender, true, encouraging words. It will lead us to sympathize with those whose hearts hunger for sympathy.

The love of CHRIST is the truest and most accurate standard of measurement. We can best measure human love by comparing it to this love but because many do not make the comparison love is often misunderstood by them.

The love of Christ is a golden chain binding finite human beings to the infinite God. This love passes our knowledge. Human science can not explain it. Human wisdom can not fathom it. The more we feel the influence of this love, the more Christlike we shall be

What is the quality of your love ?

Is it of a character to make your associates more Christlike ?

By the grace of God, we will continue to study these things in another post. Have a marvelous weekend.

RAW FACTS ABOUT HUMAN LOVE - NEVER UNCONDITIONAL: How To Recognize Love - Part V

OTHER THOUGHTS ABOUT HUMAN LOVE...

(Today's post may be a little challenging for some to accept because of what they have previously learned, have been taught or have heard.)

One Christian writer has said, "Human love is a sacred attribute; but should not be allowed to mar our religious experience, or draw our hearts from God." Why not you ask ? Because God is love..the very essence and meaning of love...

Human love is based upon feelings and God's love is based upon principle. Human love is weak and changeable, but God's love is full and deep and unchangeable. Notice that the word is unchangeable and not unconditional. The Bible never describes God’s love as unconditional but it does describe His love as unchangeable. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (1 John 4:8) For I [am] the LORD, I change not Malachi 3: 6

The phrase "unconditional love" did not originate with God or the church. Unconditional love is a man-made love. It was derived from the published works of a psychoanalyst named Erich Fromm who did not have a very high opinion of God. Here is a sample of his thoughts.

"I am not blessed, because God is good. I also never want to desire that God gives me blessedness by his goodness, because he would not be able to. I am blessed only because God is reason (vern├╝nftig) and because I recognize this." Copyright © 1999 and 2004 by The Literary Estate of Erich Fromm c/o Dr. Rainer Funk, Ursrainer Ring 24, D-72076 Tuebingen Fax: +49-7071-600049, E-mail: frommfunk[atsymbol] aol.com. Parts of this paper on mysticism and religion were included in: E. Fromm, On Being Human, New York: Continuum 1994, pp. 160ff.

The phrase "unconditional love" was coined by German psychoanalyst Erich Fromm in 1934, and the concept was developed in his 1956 book, The Art Of Loving. His ideas were refined in the 1960s by the humanist psychologist Carl Rogers.

You can read all about Erich Fromm and his works on his website here - http://www.erich-fromm.de/e/index.htm?/translate_c?shownews=1

GOD's love is not unconditional. There are certain character qualities and individuals with these qualities that He actually hates.

These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19

In fact the Bible makes clear that people, even His own people can choose to reach a permanent condition of wickedness where God cannot continue to love them.

This is exactly what happened in Hosea 9:15 when God finally said, "I will love them no more." It should be very obvious that if someone stops loving you, his or her love is not unconditional.

God chooses to love human beings regardless of their condition unless human beings choose to reach a permanent condition where God cannot love them. What condition would that be ? A settled condition of complete and utter rejection of the love of God in Christ.

God's love for a human being can be limited by the condition of a mind that has chosen to reject His love. God cannot love a person against his or her will.

The words “unconditional love” are misleading and deceptive. These words say to the human heart, “There is no urgent need to change.” You will always be accepted just the way you are. God loves you so much, He will not require you to be any different than what you are. You don't have to change. The words create a false standard that human love is expected to measure up to. Since human love is based upon feelings, and feelings change with circumstances and conditions, unconditional love can never be a reality for human beings.

HOWEVER...

God's love IS UNCHANGEABLE. It is unchangeable because it is not merely a feeling but a principle. Human beings can experience this love and demonstrate it but only with God's help. "because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us." (Romans 5:5) This love is not subject to circumstances or conditions.

Think about the love of God with me for a moment...

Parents love their children, but the love of God is larger, broader, deeper, than human love can possibly be. God gave up His only Son to His enemies in order to save His enemies. All the paternal love that has come down from generation to generation, through the channel of human hearts, all the springs of tenderness that have opened in the sons of men, are but as a tiny rill to the boundless ocean, when compared with the infinite, exhaustless love of God. Tongue can not utter it; pen can not portray it.

Have you human love for the few with whom you are associated ? You must have a deeper love than this. You must have the love of Jesus, which is an abiding, increasing love...

Human love must be refined, elevated and purified by CHRIST and apart from HIM, it is not consistent. Consistency is a jewel. Without consistency there can be no security and without security there can be no trust. This is why GOD, helps us to trust Him by multiplied assurances and securities.

By the grace of God, we will continue to study these things in another post. Have a marvelous weekend.
