WALK IN LOVE

Home 

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children, and walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given HIMSELF for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma (Ephesians 5:1-2, NKJV)).

 

The Apostle Paul wrote these words to the fledgling Ephesians’ Church to walk as Christ the Messiah walked in loving kindness. Just as a child imitates their earthly father and mother, Christ imitated HIS father in heaven. Ephesians 2:10 commands: We are God’s workmanship; created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Works/work denotes employment, our overall job while we spend our brief life on this wicked short lived earthly life. This evil world is possessed temporarily by Satan, the Devil. All the kingdoms of the world and their glory were offered to Christ in Matthew 4:9-10: And he (Devil) said to HIM (Lamb of God)), saying: All these things I will give you if you will fall down and worship me. Then Jesus said to him: Away with you Satan! For it is written: You shall worship (holy fear in reverence and love) the Lord your God and HIM only you shall serve

(Deuteronomy 6:13, 10:20 & Joshua 24:14).

 

 As the Word, the writer of the Bible (John 1:1 and 14), Christ had full authority to improve the understanding of the Old Testament preaching a stronger and  more agape love of Father God  in the New Testament. HE gently changed the word ‘fear the Lord’ to ‘worship, meaning love the Lord’. Sadly, most of the world in that age, and to this day, does neither. They love themselves, their temporary dwelling place and all contents within this greedy evil world of the Devil. When mankind repents from this evil, our Lord God will have mercy and teach how to walk in love. **Ezekiel 11:19-21: Then I (Lord God) will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them (you); and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in MY statutes (laws) and keep MY judgments and do them and they shall be MY people, and I will be their God. But for those whose hearts follow the desire for their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their deeds on their own heads. Says the Lord God.  ** Jeremiah 11:3-4: …Thus says the Lord God of Israel. Cursed is the man who does not obey the words of this covenant ( Commandments, Exodus 20, Leviticus 23) which I commanded to your fathers in the day I brought them out of the Land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying: Obey MY voice, and do according to all that I command you, so shall you be my people and I will be your God. ** Verse eight advises: Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but everyone followed the dictates of his evil heart…And the entire world continues to obey not to this day, except for few (Matthew 7:14).  Luke 13:23-24, says: Then one said to Him: Lord, are there few who are saved? And HE said to them: Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.  ** This worldwide disobedience creates loss of jobs, hunger, increasing disasters and more.  Look around and see that this evil world is rapidly coming to pass and falling apart as prophesied. There will be no peace until the soon second coming of the Messiah. Christ Jesus (Hebrew Yeshua). There will be peace only for those that turn to the Lord and walk HIS way and completely follow HIS rules.

The first step is to seek mercy in the Kingdom of the Lord and HIS righteousness (Matthew 6:33).  Seek sincerity of prayer, asking forgiveness of your sins as you forgive others who sin against you (Matthew 6:12). The second step is asking HIM to help strengthen your spiritual mind (Mark 2:8) to reason within your own mind which is guided by Satan the Devil. A right spiritual mind becomes as the song of Mary in Luke 1: 46-7, saying: My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. ** The third and most crucial step is doing as the Apostle Paul preached in Philippians 3:13-14 KJV: …Forgetting those things which are behind (Luke 9:62, Hebrews 6:1), and reaching forth unto those things which are before. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Jesus Christ.  ** Three more important messages are within this verse as follows:

 

1.     Forget the past false teachings by the present day teachers that teach a different distorted kind of love taught by Satan the Devil. This includes many forms of idol worship, gambling to make money for their own pleasures, spectacles with revealing dances, paid entertainers to sing and provide music to entice multitudes, teaching their own rules of man instead of the rules of our Lord God and much more. Thereby, teaching worship (love) in a worthless ministry in vain (Mark 7:7, Matthew 15:9).

2.      Forgive yourself as well as others by pleading with our Lord God (Luke 11:4) for there are healings in forgiveness. It binds together broken relationships with friends, family and takes away your past and present worry of this evil age. It takes away the pitch- dark of night and gives the glorious light of day even when life seems futile and black. When we do this we enter the sacred inner sanctum of our Lord God that frees our minds from the intrusion of Satan the Devil.

3.     Live, seeking the holy mark of God, leading to the high prize God gives his faithful and obedient children as HE calls you to HIS son Jesus Christ. The Messiah Christ Jesus (Hebrew Yeshua) is our Holy sacrificed Lamb of God to be your lawyer to present HIS obedient adopted children in pride before Father God (I Am, Yahweh, Jehovah, YHWH, Lord). Instead of worry in a state of depression about yesterday and tomorrow until the day you die; become alive with the strength of the Holy Spirit. Develop right living in worship, right thinking by unlearning and throwing out all the past intrusive teachings of the Devil.    

4.     Forget, forgive and live forever **

Return to the true beginning (Pentecost 31 AD, established Church of God) that honors HIM and gives pleasure to God as well as you. This develops by way of obedience to HIS Holy commandments, rules, constitutions, laws and covenants. Give pleasure to our creator today in humble repentance, baptism, worship, faith and trust…. Be blessed until we meet again.
