God Is Love...written by deno.
The Bread is in the writings.
Matthew 22:34-46....New King James Version.
The Scribes: Which Is the First Commandment of All?..The greatest one.
34 But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. 35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”
37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
John wrote, When we love God we love His children also. The real measure of one's love for God can be seen by the way we love one another. The two are un-seperable.
John wrote by the Spirit, If a man says he loves God but hates his brother (means his fellow man), that man is a liar. Those are pretty stout words used calling a man a liar, but the point had to be made, because there were many spirits that had gone out into the world claiming that they were and are of God and that they knew God. The world is flooded and full of these deceiving misleading spirits...See 1 John 4:1-12.
But the disciples, (including John) really did know God. He had become flesh and dwelt amongst them for three years. Emmanuel which means GOD WITH US as the prophet Isaiah foretold, had paid the world THE PROMISED BIG DIVINE VISIT THRU CHRIST. And John had seen Him, John had handled Him , touched Him, heard Him, talked face to face with Him, and watched Him in action and everything he observed about Jesus was just awing and so incredible, so not of this world in glory and wisdom and power.
Jesus was not just your ordinary man. No one had ever seen such a man as Jesus who was excellent in all his ways AND ANOINTED. He even walked on water and calmed the raging seas. His character and strengths in every way were flawless and without any form of blemish. He was Divine in Spirit and Divine in His thinking. His way of doing things was far above our ways and His level of thinking was as high as heaven is above the earth compared to our level.
We think according to the flesh. Jesus' wisdom thoughts and thinking was according to the Spirit and Power of God. We use boats to get to the other side because that is on the level of which we think and believe. Jesus uses his feet walking on the water to the other side or FLIES IN THE AIR TO MAKE THE TRIP, because that is the way of HIS MIGHTY THOUGHTS and the level of HIS FAR ABOVE ALL THINKING and BELIEVING. In no way was that water holding Jesus up or down. It was the glory of HIS BELIEVING. He was Emmanuel, God With Us that had become flesh.
John knew Jesus was the Lord from heaven. He knew Jesus was the Word, and that the Word had been with God and that the Word WAS GOD and he knew that THE WORD which was God had become flesh and was now with them. John knew Jesus was and is the brightness of God's glory and the express image of His Person (Heb 1:1-3). And He by witnessing God for three years in action and watching Him in His divine character on earth in the flesh, he knew God was PERFECT LOVE and so MIRACULOUS. His Word was like no others and His Word never failed no matter the weight of the demand put upon them, even to the raising of the dead, or the calming of the seas. His Word made it happen. God was being God in the midst of men.
After many days of showing great love and compassion to crowds and multitudes by way of miracles, and after healing thousands and thousands who had been oppressed of the devil (Acts 10:38), John heard this incredible Christ one divinely blessed day on earth before men utter the MONUMENTAL WORDS that to this day blesses and brings joy and comfort to many all over the world and has now for 2000 years....Jesus said, BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM.
Jesus did not just say those INCREDIBLE WORDS and then vanish and just leave the planet. No, Jesus continued mightily to back those words with Love, Power and divine demonstrations of His Glory from on High that backed His love of God light. Jesus had so shook the world in those days with the GLORY of those words I AM, that his fame grew so great that the onlookers one day being heaven struck said, Behold, the whole world has gone after him.
Many people do not realize HOW BIG THIS MOVE OF GOD ON EARTH WAS IN THOSE DAYS. God was ON EARTH walking with men. God with us in Christ was the most MONUMENTAL MOVE of GOD ever on earth since the fall. Greater than all the esteemed prophets had formerly seen or tasted or experienced. A greater One than Moses is here Jesus shouted and His Father on the mount of transfiguration bore the same Divine Witness in His glistening glory saying, THIS IS MY DIVINE SON WHO I LOVE, LISTEN AND OBEY HIM.
Jesus one day said to his disciples, If I had not done the works that no other man has ever done before, then Israel would have excuse. But now they have seen and have heard but they still do not believe, therefore there sin remains. In other words Israel had finally broke the back of the patience of God. This is that heir they said in their hearts. Let us kill him and all shall be ours. This was Israels worse transgression.
Of all the blood of the prophets that Israel had shed thru-out the years (Matthew 23:37-39), this One's (Gods Son) bloodshed would cost them and their children greatly on earth even into eternity. Part of the cost was this. The Covenant of grace would be taken from them and a wild branch (The Gentiles) would be engrafted and the gospel of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:17-21) would be handed over to the gentiles for a period of time for life and for entrustment. Then after the fulness of the time of the gentiles was accomplished, an awakening would take place in Israel. From the offspring of Abraham and of Sarah would be heard the cry, Blessed was Jesus that came to us in the Name of the Lord and Jerusalem in that our would be reborn from within and again shine with the glory of Israel which has always been the Spirit of Jesus Christ the Lord from heaven whom they had pierced in the day of their monumental visitation from Immanuel.
God had loved Israel for years and they over and over again showed Him as a nation little love back. They often killed the prophets and stoned those He sent to them and now their hearts had become so full of Satan they were about to crucify the Lord of glory HIMSELF, not understanding the day of their visitation. They could not understand HIS GREAT LOVE FOR ALL EVEN FOR THE GENTILES that they despised. But John really got to know God. His ears were amongst the blessed ones that did hear and his eyes were amongst the fortunate ones that did see. Having eyes he saw and having ears he heard.
John's heart, to simply say it, GOT IT. He understood the Lord and He got to know God's heart and true eternal character maybe more than all (Maybe). He was THAT FRIEND that saw the love of God in Christ. He realized the call and the heritage of Israel was not just unto themselves, but that God had raised Israel up in order to have the REDEEMING COMPASSION of HIS LOVE to reach ALL THE WORLD thru Christ and him crucified and risen from the dead. God clearly has told them their calling in these words to Abraham and HIS SEED.... I will bless you He said, SO THAT you will be a blessing, and in another place. From your seed shall ALL THE NATIONS of the earth BE BLESSED. That seed was Christ. Christ was born from the virgin thru the power of God so that the works of God would be manifested in HIM.
Yes, John knew the Lord. John knew God. He knew that the rest of mankind was blind and in the darkness and that they had been misled and deceived by Satan about God, about divine things, and the true things of God. But he knew Him, he had seen Him, he spent three years, THREE INCREDIBLE YEARS with Him on earth in the flesh and saw ALL THE GLORY.
John in those three incredible years with God learned much about God. He came to really know God. He learned that the one true God is love and perfect in holiness and was rich in mercy and compassion. And he knew also that if a man or a woman or a spirit said he or they knew God, or that he loved God but that same man or that same spirit hated his brother or sister or fellow man, or preached a message of hate, he said that man and that spirit is a liar, a false prophet, a deceived heart, a lying spirit, even a murderer, a demonized soul though he seems to even look religious (Islam).
Friends no matter what men say on earth or boast of how much they know God, John who lived and loved with God for three years on earth said, If you say you love God but hate others or are prejudice about others, he said in your heart you are a liar and a murderer, you don't really know Him. All these people all over America, in the middle east, and all over the world that boast that they know God but terrorize and kill in the name of their god, and that hate others and preach hate by skin tone or by any other dividing differences ARE LYING...Jesus even said, Love your enemies. Do good to those that do you wrong. Pray for those who use you and persecute you. By doing so Jesus said you would be like your Father which is in heaven. LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS CHRIST LOVED US.
..........Friends, the One true God is LOVE and He is Jesus Christ The Word, God with us.....scroll down......deno......share freely.
Jesus: How Can David Call His Descendant Lord?
41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose Son is He?”
They said to Him, “The Son of David.”
43 He said to them, “How then does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying:
44 ‘The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”’?
45 If David then calls Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his Son?” 46 And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor from that day on did anyone dare question Him anymore.
