THE LOVE OF GOD

Magnify the Lord

 

But understand this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble (hard to deal with and hard to bear).  For the people will be lovers of self and (utterly) self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate (greedy) desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters.  They will be abusive (blasphemous, scoffing), disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane.  (They will be) wihtout natural (human) affection (callous), relentless (admitting no truce or appeasement); (they will be) slanderers (false accusers, troublemakers), intemperate and loose in  morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fierce, haters of good.  (They will be) treacherous (betrayers), rash, (and) inflated with self-conceit.  (They will be) lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God.  (2 Timothy 3: 1-4… see Colossians 3). 

Over the past several days I have read some of the many ‘articles of opinion’ regarding world governments and the conditions in the nations of the world and I have felt a deep saddness in my spirit. I have read the disquiet in the words and recognize that fear is being sown in the hearts of the people around the world.  It is a global epidemic and it is infecting many. Throughout God’s Word the Lord tells us over and over not to fear; for He knows that chaos is birthed and fed by fear especially when people let fear consume them.  In Matthew 10: 28 He says, “And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; but rather be afraid of Him Who can destroy both soul and body in hell (Gehenna).”  God is a God of love, yet His very nature is justice and righteousness. He calls all His sons/daughters into obedience of His will (Acts 5: 29; Philippians 2: 8; Hebrews 5: 8; 1 Peter 1: 14, 22; 1 John 3: 6).

It is in the stillness of the early morning that God often brings Peace to my spirit and He speaks into my heart.  I am so in love with Jesus and I am so thankful that I am in Him and more importantly, that He indwells me.   Yesterday as I walked I felt His Presence so strongly and as I thought about the world situation I felt a surge of joy spring up within me and with it this thought came… “This is why My people HAVE to focus ONLY on My TRUTH and keep believing what I have spoken in My Word.  For My Word alone STANDS in the tests of time:  in wars, in disasters, in elections, in the economy, in EVERYTHING.  When everything else around you seems to be falling apart, My Word will never fail.  It is IN ME ALONE that you have security and will stay strong, that you will walk and sleep  in peace no matter what is happening around you.  Live, breathe, and speak only My Word over all situations for My Word shall not return to Me void, but it accomplishes that which I please and purpose and it prospers in the thing for which I sent it.”   As I continued my walk it was as if the Lord purposed that I should see His touch in the nature about me.  I saw flowers blooming in among vegetation that was dying due to heat and lack of rain, in among thorns, hidden under weeds and I rejoiced because it gave me revelation of the world.  God’s Presence is everywhere; He has His people positioned on their knees in every nation of the world…in among the thorns, weeds, and darkness.  His love and the beauty of His holiness stands out (is magnified over the darkness of these days)!  Hallelujah!  🙂

I like the Gaithers music; the words of the songs have great meaning.  This song is no exception;  be blessed as you enjoy with me:  “The Love of God”   http://youtu.be/CZZT7EfebBs
