STAY ALERT


Dear One,
   You must be alert to always see my good works toward you in your behalf.  You miss recognizing many of them because of your busy life.  You miss My goodness and My kindness that I send in small ways because you are looking for big miracles.  You miss the small, but equal, miracles. You look upon them sometimes as coincidences, but sometimes you recognize them as what they are and call them "God Incidents." (Matthew 14:25-32)
   A grateful heart will always look for My miracles, big and small, because a grateful heart lives with the expectation of the best to happen instead of expecting bad things to happen.  A grateful heart is full of expectations of evidence of My love and goodness toward you. (Galatians 3;15)
    Being alert to see My blessings is like searching for hidden treasures, keeping a keen lookout for glistening treasures to catch your eye which you had previously missed and overlooked, yet you know that there is gold in the sand or earth.  Some people think small pieces of gold have no value.  Other people collect many small pieces and together they become valuable.  It's the same with My children, some overlook My goodness toward them, looking over what they see as invaluable occurrences but they are actually of great value.(Matthew 12:35) 
     My blessings are sometimes hidden from the natural eye but are never hidden from the eye of your spirit which looks for the evidence of My abundant life, the parts of My life which I manifest into your earthly life. (I Corinthians 2:9-12)

      Expect the small and large miracles that I send in your behalf as hidden treasures which need to be viewed by spiritual eyes.  When you recognize them, they will add to you faith because they will produce gratitude in you.  (Matthew 13:44-45)
      Recognizing all of My miracles in your behalf with youthful joy and excitement will keep the waters of living water flowing into your mind and body, purifying them and increasing the knowledge of My love for you.  (John 7:38-39)

KINDNESS TOWARD YOU
Dear One,
   My love toward you is always kind.  My kindness has many facets, some of which being that I am always generous, warmhearted, merciful and compassionate toward My children.  Jesus said when He walked the earth that the people were evil and they still gave gifts to their children, but so much more would I give good gifts to them because of My love for them.

   Another facet of My kindness is that I am understanding toward My children.  I understand when you are unkind toward others as tempted by the devil.  I understand your proclivity to listen to the father of lies and obey his temptations.  I understand that you don't know that it is his temptations that cause your problems.  I understand because I had to ostracize him from My kingdom, if you will remember, because of his evil actions. (Isaiah 14:12-15; Luke 10:17-19) So I understand completely how easy it is for you, being flesh and blood, to yield to his temptations.  I understand that he tempts you to do evil acts and then judges and condemns you in your own mind for the actions.  Guilt torments you also, which is his tool used to enslave you.  I understand your struggle against his temptations.  Also remember that I walked in the flesh in the person of Jesus so I understand how hard it is to refuse his temptations.  Jesus paid the price required by your enemy for your sins, mistakes and bad choices.  That is why I am merciful and forgiving.  It is by experience that I understand and extend My mercy and compassion to you and to all of My children.
    My kindness toward you is generous, always eager to give you as your inheritance everything that I have in My kingdom, which is inside you and around you.  I have every good, magnificent and wonderful thing that I ever created just for you and I am eager and willing to flood your life with My kindness.  My Holy Spirit said that I am able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than you dare think or imagine, according to My power that is in you.  That power needs to be My love, the most powerful energy in the heavens and the earth.  (Ephesians 3:20)
   It is from My kindness that I am patient with all of My children.  I know your level of faith because I live in you.  I know that your faith is sometimes low and sometimes high.  I am always patient with your moods, your tantrums, your ravings and your unbelief.  I am patient and I understand. 
    Because I am patient I am willing to wait for you to choose to follow My leading and guidance from My Holy Spirit.  I know that you will learn to stop obeying the voice of your enemy of destruction and eventually learn to follow My voice of guidance which is the voice of My Holy Spirit.  Because I love you, I am willing to wait for you to learn to follow Me. 
   I never withdraw My love and My gifts from you because of your spiritual weaknesses.  My kindness is always being poured upon you and you can become flooded with My gifts. 
   What stands in the way of your receiving My gifts is that your behavior is often not the actions of My children of kindness but is more identifiable as the children of the enemy of My children, the father of destruction.  Your association with him and your obedience to his unkind, angry and strife-filled ways will block My kind gifts from coming into your life.  In other words, your choices between good and evil promptings determine your degree of reception of My gifts which are already flowing to you because of My kindness.  I have never withdrawn anything from My children.  Because I love, I give constantly. 
    I said under My old covenant with a nation through whom the flesh of Jesus came that when you hear My voice and follow My guidance that you will be blessed in every area of your life.  I am eager to educate you how to stay in the flow of My goodness and kindness toward all of My creation.(Deuteronomy 28:1-2)  My Holy Spirit will always coach you to be kind and loving to everyone because I am kind and loving to all of My creation. (Romans 12:10; Ephesians 4:31-32)
   When Jesus told you to ask what you will and it will be done to you, he also said to do to others as you would have them do to you.  In other words, He gave you the way to keep the path clear between you and My blessings and that it is if you are kind, generous, loving and merciful to others just the way that I am kind, generous, loving and merciful to you.  The flowing river of My blessings will not be dammed up from the earth when you walk in My Spirit of kindness toward others. (Matthew 5:43 -48; Matthew 7:9-12)

LOVE HAS POWERS

Dear One,
    My love is so multifaceted that its power is the greatest energy source in the heavens and in the earth. As we look at the attributes of My love for you and for all of humanity and the world, keep in mind that when you love others as I love you that you are defeating evil in every form. That is why Jesus said to His disciples that My new commandment is to love others as We love you.  My Spirit said that every commandment under the old covenant is covered and obeyed when you love others with My love.
    Look at the attribute of My love that is described by the Holy Spirit as being a  love that does not become resentful or irritable by taking into account a wrong suffered. (I Corinthians 13:7)  The example of Jesus shows you how to react to a wrong suffered against you, not becoming resentful or irritable about it but to immediately forgive and then forget it.  While on the cross Jesus issued My love and forgiveness to the people who crucified Him. I can do the same thing in you, give you the power of My love to forgive others. 
    The power of love behind this action of love toward others comes from My ultimate act of sending salvation to you when I sent Jesus to earth, saving you from the works of evil in your life.  When Jesus died for the sins of the whole world, He blotted out evil works, eradicated them, erased all accounts of them. (I John 3:8)  It is as if they never existed because they never existed in My mind and I desire that they never exist in your mind. (Isaiah 1:18) In other words, when someone hurts you emotionally or physically, the outgrowth of My love toward you is that you also never take into account a wrong suffered against you.
   Because of Jesus' sacrifice, I keep no accounting of your sins, iniquities, transgressions and mistakes, so My love in you will keep no account of any wrongs done to you.  My love in you will not become resentful or irritable because of the actions of other people. You will allow the blood of Jesus to also be the payment for the offenses of the people who hurt you, as He asked you to do. (I John 2:2-3)
   Remember when you were first baptized in My Holy Spirit and your church members persecuted you, gossiped about you, preached against you and shunned you?  Jesus stated that you are blessed when people persecute you for My sake. but you didn't feel blessed.  Instead, your feelings were hurt because your friends were persecuting you.  When you came to Me with your injured ego and hurt feelings, the truth that I spoke to you took away all of the hurt that came from your taking into account the wrong suffered against you.  My truth spoken to you about the situation took all of the resentment away when I told you that I love the people who persecuted you just as much as I love you, because I am love.  You suddenly understood that My love covers up and blots out all evil works. (Colossians 2:13-14)
    You must further understand that the only account that is kept of any evil act in the earth is the account kept by the devil who instigates all acts of evil.  So if you take account a wrong that you suffered, you are siding with the devil who wants you to react with evil and further his works of evil in the earth. (John 16:11)
    However, if you let My love for you and the offender rule in your life, you will allow My love to erase the evil work which was done to you, knowing that when you forgive the person that the situation is as if it never happened because it never did in My eyes.  When it never happened in your memory because you have forgiven the person, then there is no account of it in your mind and My love actually rules in your life, blessing you and opening you up for My kingdom to deliver into your life all of the benefits of being My child. (I John 2:1-2)

    There is no account in My heaven of the sins of anyone in the world.  There is only an account of My Son's death which blotted out all sins. (John 1:29; Galatians 1:3-4)
    When there is still an account in your mind of the offenses against you by other people, then I cannot eradicate them from your mind because you have chosen to keep an accounting of them in your mind.  If you continue to keep an account of a wrong, then you will continue to suffer in your mind and body because bitterness will consume you. My forgiveness and love is still active toward you, but if you have chosen to keep the account, along with the devil, of the evil done to you and then the works of the devil will continue to curse you because you have left Me and joined with the judgment of the devil.  (John 5:22; John 8:15)
    You can choose for My love in you to erase all accounts of the evil done to you, eradicating them, blotting them out and covering them with My love which covers a multitude of sins. (I Peter 4:8)
    Just extend the same grace to others that I extend to you because of My love.
Remember that people don't know what they are doing when they obey the temptations of the devil, just like you were ignorant before you were enlightened.  It starts with an act of your will, deciding not to keep an account of a wrong suffered by you. Do to others as I do to you.
    Your Loving and Forgiving Father

TO COMPROMISE IS TO LOVE

Dear One,
   We have looked at the many attributes of My love toward all of humanity.  The one that is the most difficult for My children to understand and show toward others is that love never insists on its own way.  In other words, love never insists that it is right and others are wrong. (I Corinthians 13:4-5)
   You remember when you were obviously right in a matter and I asked you if you would rather be right or righteous.  You understood completely that love does not insist that another person is wrong in anything because that means that you think that you are completely right, which comes from arrogance and pride.   The  righteous thing to do is what I do to you, which is to allow the other person free will to believe what his or her heritage, experience and learning have taught the person to believe.  You must compromise by kindly and graciously allowing other people the same free will to believe what their life has taught them to believe.  (Matthew 5:44-48)  
   Real love compromises.  There are many reasons for compromising.  The primary one is to keep peace.  Since Jesus is the Prince of Peace, you must be His ambassador of peace in the earth out of My love for all people.  Avoiding conflict is keeping peace. Compromising is keeping peace. (Ephesians 4:3)

   Think about a kettle of liquid which is in a rolling boil.  Adding boiling water will only enhance the heat and further the possible injurious effects of the boiling liquid.   But, if cold water is added to the rolling boil of the liquid, then the boil is dissipated and becomes calm because coolness has been added to the heat. 
   It's the same thing with never insisting on your own way.  When you add coolness to the hot temper of another person by not insisting on your own way, then you allow the temper of the other person to cool down, just like the boiling liquid cools down when cold is added to it.  In never insisting on your own way, you avoid possible toxic situations and never allow them to develop.  
   This truth is found in the teaching of My Holy Spirit who said that if you will let me avenge you by eventually showing who is right, then you have avoided an injurious situation which might eventually require forgiveness on your part if you insist that you are right and circumstances eventually prove that you are wrong. I said not to return evil for evil but to allow me to avenge you as being right if you are, in fact, right.  (Romans 12;17-21) It's better to be righteous rather than be right.  If circumstances do prove that you are right, then so be it.  You will still have been gracious, sowing seeds into My kingdom in the situation by not opposing the other person by insisting that you were right.
   Keeping peace with others is an outgrowth of My love flowing from Me to you and outward to others.  Insisting that you are right works against peace and adds to turmoil and strife, which are the handiwork of evil.   So you must be cool headed, like the pouring of cold water on the boiling liquid.  Then peace is instituted and strife is averted. That's what love does. (Romans 14:17-18)
   I said that where there is strife there is every evil work, meaning every work of the devil.  So when you compromise with someone by not insisting on being right with the other person being wrong, then peace is maintained and My kingdom is able to work blessings into the lives of both parties.(James 3:15-16) 
   Make it your aim to add a loving attitude to every oppositional person and the boiling tempers of other people.  When you do, you will live a righteous life which inherits all of the blessings of My kingdom. (Romans 14:17-18)
  Your Peace Loving Father

PURIFYING ATTITUDES

Dear One,
   Don't capitalize your thoughts on your own imperfections or the imperfections of other people.  Instead, capitalize your thoughts on My love for you and for everyone.  My love is so intense and pure that it totally encompasses you and your whole life. (I Corinthians 13:13)
   I do not seek to find imperfections, sins, iniquities or trespasses of My children.  That is what your spiritual enemy does.  Instead, I seek to implant My love into you so deeply that you will be baptized and immersed in My love and then become flooded with the knowledge of My ways, thoughts, attitudes and actions toward you and all of My creation.
   My intense love for you swallows up all of your situations and your circumstances because I desire to work constantly in your behalf to bring My kingdom into your life when you seek Me with your whole heart.  To seek Me is to seek My love for you.(Ephesians 3:14-17)   
   Instead of thinking about any negative attributes of people, including yourself, only consider what I have done for you, am currently doing for you and will do for you according to My promises.  The time will come when you have seen My works in your life to such a degree that you will be so firmly established in My love that no event, no circumstance, no situation and no person can rob you of that knowledge. (Romans 8:38-39) Then you can pass My love on to others because everything in your life has been restored to perfection and redeemed from the former family curses which produced unfortunate circumstances in your life. It all starts with the knowledge of My love for you.  (John 13:35)
 


   Once you are firmly planted in love, you will not have to strive to pass it on.  It will flow from your inner being where I live in you.  It will flow without any effort on your part because the light of My love cannot be confined.  Love will flow from you like the River of Living Waters that it is.  It must, I say it must break out of the earthly containers and flow outward to others.(John 7:38-39) 
    My love cannot be selfishly contained  and become stagnant because it is the leaven that is spoken of in the parable, it will leaven all of your entire being, your situations, your circumstances, your life, your family and your world as a result of leavening your spirit, soul and body. (Matthew 13:33)
     Knowledge without love merely puffs up a person.  Becoming intimately acquainted with My love will set you high on the hill of My kingdom and bring all of My blessings into your life because you have become flooded with Me and My life changing love. (Ephesians 3:18-20)
     Your Loving Father

HEAVENLY LOVE

Dear One,
   There is no human love that is unselfish, unconditional and unadulterated.  Even the most virtuous and sacrificing parents lose patience and often become verbally abusive and physically abusive.  When overloaded with problems, even good earthly parents become self absorbed and temporarily withdraw their love from their children.  The people who grow into parenthood ill equipped with the necessary skills to be good parents become constantly abusive, neglectful and self absorbed. 
   So children grow into adulthood with varying degrees of curses from their parents.   Parents make disciples of their children, either disciples of good parenting or disciples of bad parenting.  In other words, they make disciples of good or disciples of evil.
    There are areas in the souls of all people which are underdeveloped because of the need for unconditional love which has not been met by their parents.  They marry people also with underdeveloped souls because of their lack of parental guidance and love, expecting to receive unselfish, unadulterated conditional love from their partners.  It never happens because unconditional love only comes from Me.   
  
   Jesus said that you, being influenced by evil, sometimes give gifts to your children but I, being good, always give beneficial gifts to My children.  He even said that it is My good pleasure to give you everything in My kingdom.  (Matthew 7:11-12; Luke 12:32)  The most wonderful, beneficial, satisfying gift to you is My love, My unconditional love which never takes into account a wrong that you do, is neither moody nor acts unseemly, is never arrogant but is always humble, is always patient, expecting good to prevail in your life, is never rude or sarcastic, condemning or judgmental when you miss the mark, is never touchy or fretful.  I am always kind and generous to My children and I never pay attention to any wrong that you do because I look on your spirit, not your flesh which is influenced by evil.  I always lift you up with My reassuring words and teachings.  I never put you down in order to appear superior. I am always full of mercy.  I never lord My fatherhood over you.  I am love.  (I Corinthians 13:4-8)
    The love that I offer can never be found in humans, not in parents, in mates, in children;, neither in those whom you call your blood brothers and sisters, nor in political or religious leaders.  Every human being is subject to the pull toward evil.  I am not in flesh so I am not tempted  by evil and I do not tempt with evil.  (James 1:13-19)
    When you find that all human love has failed you, I am waiting to bring you into My loving arms, eager to release you from the evil that plagued you and excited to give you all the benefits of My kingdom, beginning with My unconditional love. (I John 4:7-14)
    I exist for the purpose of giving all of My blessings to My children.  If you will seek Me, you will find the love you so desperately seek and desire.  I always fulfill My promise that if you will seek Me that you will find Me.  It is My Holy Spirit who reveals to you the vastness of My love for you.  (Ephesians 3:14-20; I John 3:1)
    It is because of My love for you that I give My good gifts to you.
    I am excited for you to know the vastness of My love so that you will be able to access My wonderful gifts for you. 
    Your Loving Father

THE HIGHEST AND BEST

Dear One,
   The things that are obvious are neither always the best, nor are they the highest quality of life that I have for you.
    Things that are visible are not always true reality.  When things are in turmoil around you,  there is peace and tranquility in My kingdom which is available for you to access. (Roman 14:17)
    What you see with your human eyes and hear with your human ears are temporary and subject to change. (I Corinthians 4:17-18)
    You must not accept anything that is visible or obvious that is not superior and of the highest degree.  Refuse to accept imperfections in any situation, in any personality, in any toxic relationship or in any negative circumstance.  Toxicity, division, disgust, anger, hatred, jealousy and envy are not what I have for you in My family,  Those are of the family of the devil who loves to destroy everything that you have.  (I John 3:8) Refuse to accept his destructive works.  Instead, follow My leading and love the person who is being used to destroy the good that I have created.  Bring peace and love to the people and to the situation.(Romans 12:21) 
    There is a battle which is going on behind the scenes in the spiritual dimension around you, the battle between good and evil.  You must let My Holy Spirit fight the battle with the evil spirits that are the cause of problems.  That can only be done by your loving the person but praying in My Holy Spirit which allows Me to enter the situation and defeat the demonic spirits who instigated the entire negative situation. Your obligation is to love the person and pray.  My job is to defeat the demonic spirits.  I can only do that with your permission and your intercessory prayers.
    My children are use to the mundane, the inferior, because they think they must accept things the way they are, unpleasant, worrisome, depressing, defeating and sad.  You don't have to resign yourself to accepting  the things that your enemy, the devil, brings into your life.  I gave you all of the keys to My Instruction Book, which if used will perfect every negative situation.  The first key is to forgive and then love.  Forgive and love.  Forgive and love.  That bears repeating over and over again. Forgiving and loving people who oppose you and injure you will bring My kingdom into every toxic situation. (Luke 6:27-28) 
    Changing the people and the situation from evil to good involves dealing with the negative spirits which are at the core of the problem.  That is done by praying in My Holy Spirit, allowing Me to defeat your enemy and My enemy in the spiritual dimension, defeating the works of the devil behind the scenes.  

    I told you that you constantly choose between good or evil, blessings or curses.  I gave you the earthly arsenal that changes a situation from evil to good and that is to do good to your enemies, to love them and bless them.  When you do, you choose My blessings. (Matthew 5:38-48)
   I told you through My Holy Spirit how to defeat the works of the devil, the spiritual principalities and powers in the air around you.  That is by praying in My Holy Spirit, which allows Me to destroy the evil works which come against you in the heavens.  You must deal with the humans with love and I will deal with the demons using My power. (Ephesians 6:10-12)
   My desire for you is to have perfect love, perfect peace, perfect joy and perfect prosperity,  In other words, I have given you everything necessary for the abundant life and godliness. (II Peter 1:3-4)
   You must not accept evil works as just part of life.  Use My teachings on how to bring My blessings into your life.  That is My desire for you.
    Your Loving Father

PERPETUAL FORGIVENESS

Dear One,
   While in the earth you must learn to live in an attitude of perpetual forgiveness for others.
   Hell wants you to live in an attitude of being unforgiving, condemning, judgmental, spiteful and abusive so that it can flood your life with all the demons who exist to make your life a hell.
   I want you to live in a perpetual attitude of forgiveness so that I can flood your life with all of My blessings which will make your life filled with My kingdom benefits of love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness, mercy, patience and faith.  (Galatians 6:7)
   Immediate forgiveness is called for in strife filled situations.  That is the reason I advised you not to let the sun go down on your anger. (Ephesians 4:26-27)  I want you to learn to immediately forgive someone who has wronged you before any time passes so that the anger cannot set up its home in your mind which will curse you and your family by inviting the demons of hell to minister to all of you. The seeds sown by anger will grow angry attitudes in other people, which will multiply the demons who love to stir up more and more strife which produces more and more distress and unhappiness in your life.  It can all be stopped at the core when you forgive others immediately.  (Matthew 5:38-48)
   I know that I am not asking you to do something that is easy for humans.  I walked the earth in the body of Jesus and I know the struggles of the human mind which wants to justify itself, always determining that you are right and other people are wrong.  Right or wrong does not enter into the arena of forgiveness.  It involves being like Jesus who forgave the ones who killed Him because He knew that they didn't know what they were doing.  In doing that, He set a standard for you, an example of what it means to be My child who is full of forgiveness and mercy.
   This is the suffering to which you are called, suffering the death of your human desire, just like Jesus did, to punish the person who wronged you.  There will be a fight between your flesh, which the devil influences, and your spirit, where I live.  (Galatians 5:17-18)Forgiveness is a struggle but the only thing that suffers is the part of you that needs to be perfected and changed into My image.  You struggle against the demons who want you to be self protective, self assertive, exalting yourself over others by holding grudges through being unforgiving.  (Ephesians 6:12-13)
    As I said, being right or wrong has nothing to do with becoming forgiving.  The righteous thing to do is to always forgive immediately so that you don't provide a venue for the demons of hell to have a party around you at your expense, drawing more and more people into the strife filled situation which increases the curses in the situation, which further increases the unhappiness and distress in the lives of everyone involved.(Romans 12:21)
    Being right in any situation is not worth all the unhappiness and strife produced by being unforgiving toward the person whom you think wronged you.  This is the most basic teaching of Jesus and all the other ambassadors whom I sent to earth to teach My children how to have My kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.  I want you to be righteous and forgiving instead of insisting you are right.  (Romans 14:17)
    You choose between having heaven on earth or having hell on earth.  The first advice taught by Jesus and the first course taught by My Holy Spirit in My Instruction Book is to forgive others just as I forgive you.  If you don't forgive others, I can't forgive you because you are holding on to the strife-filled situation and won't let it go.  You deny Me the joy of flooding you and the situation with My blessings when you refuse to forgive. (Matthew 6:12)
    I love you when you forgive and I love you when you don't forgive.  The problem is that when you refuse to forgive a person you sign up for a life of hell because you have chosen it by being unforgiving, sowing strife into your own life which will consume you. 
    My child, this is basic tutoring from Me, your Loving Father, who wants the highest and best for you.  I want perpetual peace and love in your life.  It will happen if you will stay in the attitude of perpetual forgiveness of others.  When you do, My blessings flood into your life. (Luke 12:32; Mark 11:25-26 )
    Your Forgiving Father

FIRM FOUNDATION

Dear One,
   There is only one firm foundation and that is the solid foundation of knowing My love for you and all people. Any other foundation will crumble and fall when trouble arises in your life. (Ephesians 3:17)
   Your faith only works by My love in you.  (Galatians 5:6)
   Mercy comes from My love. (Matthew 5:7) 
   Forgiveness comes from My love because I loved and dearly prized the world so much that I sent My Son to erase, obliterate and forgive all sins. (John 3:16-17)  
   My goodness toward you and all of My children comes from My love for you. 
   My kindness toward you and all of My children comes from My love for you. 
   My patience with you and all of My children comes from My love for you. 
   My faithfulness toward you comes from My love for you. 
   My unmerited favor comes from My love for you and all of My children.  
   My good pleasure in giving you My kingdom comes from My love for you. (Luke 12;31-32)
    That is why My Holy Spirit is so eager to reveal the depth, width, height and breadth of My love, because I want you to be established on the only foundation, the revelation of My love for you and for all mankind.  Remember that I even love your world because I sent Jesus to redeem everything in your world. 
   My Spirit is the one who unwraps, unfolds, opens and reveals the vastness of My love.  He is the One who has been given the task of revealing My love to My children from the inside of their beings where I live. 
   When you are firmly established in the intimate knowledge of My love, then you will have the power to love everyone as I love you.  My love will flow to your enemies, your friends, your neighbors, your family, strangers, acquaintances and your world.  Everything in your life will be transformed by My love which flows from you like the Rivers of Living Waters that He is. (John 7:38-39) You will bring life to everyone.  There will be no negative attitudes which bring death spoken from your mouth. You will plant love seeds which bring life to others because you intimately know Me and My love.  
    Shame, judgment, condemnation, guilt, anger, death, depression and domination will not be thought or spoken or shown by you because they are not from the fountain of My love.
    The Apostle John knew My love when he walked with Me.  He is known as the apostle of love because he loved Me and loved others intensely and passionately because he was intimately acquainted with Me and My love. 
    Your Brother Jesus told you that you must love your enemies, doing good to them and praying for them.(Matthew 6:43-48)
    My Holy Spirit wrote through John that My children who do not love their enemies as well as their friends cannot say that they know Me, because I am love.  That was a gauge spoken by My Spirit for you to use to measure your relationship with Me is if you love others as I love you. (I John 4:7-8) 
    When your nation teaches you to hate others who do not agree with the politics of your nation, then you cannot say that your nation is a nation under Me because only when the tenets of your politics teaches love for all people will it be a nation under Me with its trust in Me.  Declaring that it is a "nation under God" while it teaches hatred for others is merely a meaningless slogan.  "In God we trust" is a spiritual untruth if your nation is built upon war, hatred and ascendancy over other nations.
   My Spirit wrote that a person who doesn't love everyone the way that I love everyone doesn't know Me because I am love.  That person must seek a revelation of My love.
   I don't condemn you for having unloving attitudes in your garden.  I know the source of those attitudes, which is the devil.  The devil even uses religion and politics to sow destructive seeds into your mind, which is your garden of life.  (Matthew 5:20) My Holy Spirit uses My truth to sow the seeds of peace and love in your mind. (Matthew 8:32)
    If something is not of love, it is not of Me.  That is the gauge you must use.
    Your Father of Love

GRACIOUS BEHAVIOR


Dear One,
   We talked about forgiveness being the highest outgrowth of love.  (John 3:16-17)
   There are thousands of other attitudes and actions which flow from My love to you and from you to others.  You are a conduit of love, distributing light to a world which knows darkness in many forms.  I need people through whom I can distribute My gifts to other people.  My children are the chosen vessels because I live in them. (Matthew 5:13-16)
    It is My grace which makes you the apple of My eye, My loved and precious child.  It is My grace which looks beyond your imperfections and gives you My unmerited favor, looking upon you as My image in the earth with the mission of becoming conformed to My image.
    Your reaction to My actions of grace toward you must be that you extend favor to everyone you meet. (John 1:17; Romans 5:17)
    Being gracious means you extend My unmerited favor to everyone.  (I Corinthians 1:4-7)
    Being gracious to others means you give to every person the benefit of being important enough to warrant your full attention, your full approval and your favor regardless of the person's behavior, actions, beliefs or  imperfections, just like I give you My favor. (Romans 5:5-8)
    Being gracious to others is putting their preferences above yours, being willing to allow others to feel important and loved.  (Matthew 5:5)
    Being gracious to others is seeing the good in every person, every situation and every occasion without judging, condemning or opposing them. (Matthew 5:8)
    Being gracious to others is allowing them to make their own choices without your belittling those choices.  Grace is respecting others because I give you free will to make your own choices without belittling you for making choices which affect you negatively.  
     Being gracious to others means that you do not oppose them for their beliefs, their customs or their choices whether you agree with them or not.  You never withdraw your love from them because of their choices. Your love should increase when they make wrong choices.  Wrong choices made by others should result in your praying for them and doing good to them, blessing them instead of cursing them with your disapproval.  (Matthew 5:38-42)) 
     Being gracious to others is being respectful of their freedoms, their philosophies, their religious and political preferences, their customs, their nationalities and their traditions without judging them as being wrong. (Matthew 7:1-2)
    Being gracious is being righteous instead of insisting on your being right and the other person wrong.  (Romans 14:17)
    Being gracious to others extends mercy instead of judgment, just like I do to all human beings. Grace erases all manner of dishonoring and disrespecting others.(Matthew 5:7)
    Being gracious is being Christ-like, merciful, forgiving, kind and respectful by constantly extending favor to others because they are your sisters and brothers who are made in My image.  Matthew 25:34-40)
    You honor Me when you extend the same grace to everyone that I extend to you. 
     When you extend My grace to others, you extend My love. (I Corinthians 1:3-4) 
     Your Gracious and Loving Father

HIGH DEGREE OF LOVE

Dear One,
   Forgiveness is love to the highest degree.  Only real love can forgive a wrong, a hatred, a hurt, an injury, a disappointment, a betrayal or an indiscretion. (Matthew 6:14-15) When you truly love, you release the other person from guilt, the threat of judgment and punishment, releasing the person from blame. You take the responsibility on yourself and you pass it on to Me. I bear it like Jesus did on the cross.  I receive the injurious incident and I forgive it, also, as far as the east is from the west.  Then the event is as if it never happened, because in My eyes and heart it didn't, and no one is judged, punished, condemned or blamed because those attitudes are nonexistent just like the event is.(Isaiah 1:18-19)
   If you refuse to forgive a person, the event is magnified, the demonic activity is multiplied because blame, guilt and condemnation are bantered back and forth from you and the other participants.The works of the devil are glorified instead of My works of love being glorified.  (Romans 12:17-21) 
   When you choose to forgive, you become purified by your forgiveness because the event becomes nonexistent in the heavens as well as in the earth, the perpetrator of the event is purified because it is nonexistent in your mind, and the event itself is purified because good has overcome evil.  Instead of multiplying evil you have multiplied My goodness and My kingdom of goodness floods into the situation and into the people.  The results is that the knowledge of Me and My ways will cover your part of the earth as the waters cover the sea. (Isaiah 11:5-9)
   Put the blame where it belongs, on the devil who is the father of lies and destruction.  (Ephesians 6:12) The efforts that he uses to instigate his works in your life most often involve causing other people to do things which will cause you to become emotional, opposing the people and becoming angry at them, thus causing you to hold grudges and become unforgiving so that he can snare you into his trap.  If he can get you to return evil for evil, he has the upper hand and will eventually win.  On the other hand, when you forgive, giving the event forward to Me by forgiving the offending person, you bring My love into the situation and you, the other person and I win the battle against evil. (Matthew 18:21-33)
    Forgiving others is the key to freedom for you and your mind. (John 8:32)
    Your Loving and Forgiving Father

INTIMACY
Dear One,
   One of the things that limits your ability to know Me intimately is the tradition in your mind that I am far away up in the sky in another dimension. 
   I AM IN YOU.  When you have invited Me into your life you become My tabernacle, My temple, My house, My abode. Our fellowship and communion together is inside of you from My Spirit who lives inside your spirit which is inside of your body.(I Corinthians 6:19-20)
   Just like two people would become intimated acquainted if they were locked up together in a house for years and years, so we must become acquainted because My Spirit and your spirit are living inside of your earthly housing of your body.  Because I have chosen to live inside of you and you have chosen to invite Me to live inside of you, there is constant opportunity for you to know Me just like I know you, from inside out.  
   My Spirit longs to reveal My Love to your human mind.  He is eager to reveal My true character and personality which differs from the limited knowledge of religious teachings.  He longs to create in you My traits of love, joy, peace, mercy, goodness, kindness, faith and patience so that you are changed into My image in the earth and become a distributor of My
love in the earth.  He is eager to give you all of the keys of My kingdom so that your time in the earth is free of distressing problems.  He longs to teach you My truth relating to defeating the works of evil in your life and in the world. 
   My Spirit is My power source and I give Him freely to My children who ask.  He is the one who raised Jesus from the dead and He wants to free you from the effects of the evil that has been done to you and by you.  He is your teacher, your private tutor whom I sent to live inside of you.  He is your advocate who dispenses My inheritance to you.(John 14:12-17; John 16:12-15)
    "Control Central" is inside of you and My other children where I dwell in the earth.  You can become so intimately acquainted with Me through My Spirit who lives in you that you will be like Jesus and be able to call Me Abba, PaPa, because of our intimacy.  You will be able to declare, "My Heavenly Papa loves Me." (Romans 8:15-16)
    First you must know My kindness and goodness toward My children. Become conscious of My Spirit who lives in you.  Listen to Him and He will show you My works in your behalf through My acts of love.  You must believe that it is My good pleasure to give you My kingdom and everything that relates to the abundant life in the earth as well as in the heavens because I am love.(Luke 12:31-32)
    We cohabit your body.  I am constantly available to share with you My ways which will make your life peaceful, loving and joyful.  I wait for you to come to commune with Me where you will receive the bread of life and the living waters which bring peace to your soul.
    I'm waiting for you.  My door is always open. (John 4:13-14; Matthew 11:28-29)
    Your Loving Father

ROOTED AND GROUNDED
My Dearly Prized Child,
   I desire that you and the rest of My children will be rooted and grounded in My love for you.  I desire that you deeply and intimately know the height, the breadth, the width and the depth of My Love for you and all of My children so that Christ can more fully and completely live in you.  Pray that My Spirit will reveal My Love to you so that you will be filled with My fullness, with all of My attributes and My character.   I want you to be so rooted and grounded in Me that your revelation of My Love for you far surpasses mere earthly knowledge and you become a loving reflection of Me.  (Ephesians 3:14-20)
   My Spirit promised that through that revelation of My love for you that the results will be that I can do super abundantly more than you dare ask, think or imagine according to the firm foundation of the power of My Love for you. 
   When you are firmly established in My Love for you, you can never live a life guided by the weak flesh again.  My Love for you takes you out of the earthly dimension and makes you a supernatural being because My love is supernatural. (Galatians 5:18-24)
   Judging people by earthly standards is an act of the flesh where Our enemy works.  However, It is spiritual and supernatural to never judge a person by fleshly standards but rather to see them spiritually like I do.  My Love in you allows them to be individuals with free will and accepts them the way they are, just like I do.  My Love covers all of the sins and shortcomings of others and only sees their needs.  When you allow My Love for people to operate in your life, you will allow My compassion and mercy to be released from within you and flow from you to all people regardless of what they have or haven't done for you or to you, and what they have or haven't done for others or to others. 
   LOVE is:
Looking Over Vain Elements in other people. 
   What does love cost you?  Nothing of real value.  I have already paid the price because I gave My son, your Brother, so that you might intimately know My Love for you.  My Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead has been given the mission of revealing My Love to all of My children.  He does it from the inside of you. (I John 4:7-8)
   There are some things that being rooted in My love will cost you, but they are attitudes which are damaging to you. You will give up prejudices, judging others, condemning others, pride, arrogance, bitterness, grudges and selfishness.  You won't have to struggle to give them up because they will merely fall away when you are filled with My love for all people.  My mercy, My forgiveness, My love, My humility, My meekness, My goodness and My kindness will replace the former negative characteristics of the devil to which you yielded.  With the revelation of My Love for you, you will become spiritually powered with My Love.(I Timothy 1:7)
    When you are firmly and deeply rooted and grounded in My Love, your thoughts, attitudes and actions will be changed into loving thoughts, attitudes and actions and your love will then transform others and peace will come to your world.   Then you will ask what you will and it will be done for you because you will not ask amiss.(James 4:3;John 15:7)

SILENCE THE ROAR

SILENCE THE ROAR
Dear One,
   My Holy Spirit told My children through Peter that the devil walks the earth as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.  You notice he is as a roaring lion, he is not a roaring lion.  A lion is lazy and watches for weak, young, diseased and lost animals who will be easy hosts through whom to do his work and from whom to rob and kill. In fact, the lion usually lets the lioness most of the killing for him, he is so lazy.  All he likes to do is roar and sound powerful.  

   Just like a lion does, the devil lets someone else do his work in the earth.  The actual work of the devil is done through My people and with their cooperation.  My children are completely ignorant of the fact that they are used as hosts for the devil's work.  My children get jealous or envious because someone has something that they don't have, so the devil temps that person to rob or steal from others.  That is why I told the children under the first covenant with a nation that they should not covet what someone has, because when they do it opens them up to obey the temptations of the devil to rob and steal, which could result in both parties being killed in the end.  That's is why I told My children not to commit adultery, because of the diseases that can be passed with multiple sexual partners.  The devil cannot commit sexual acts, but he can tempt My children with the spirit of adultery so that he can pass sexual diseases on to My children.  Also the danger with adultery is that My children stand the chance of killing or being killed by their marriage partners because of jealousy caused by the adultery.  So, see, the devil needs hosts in the earth to do his work because he is a spirit and can only work through humans to curse the earth and My children in it. (I Peter 5:6-9)
   When Jesus came to earth He gave to my children effective ways to defeat the works of the devil in their lives. Instead of killing a person who robs or steals from you, He told you that if someone takes one thing from you that you should give him something of equal value so that the devil's works will be defeated and peace will reign in the situation.  In that way, the robber will not be tempted to kill you and you will not be tempted to kill the robber.  Jesus told you that you should forgive a person who wrongs you.  Take, for instance, what happens when a husband forgives his wife and the other man for committing adultery, he robs the devil of his power in the situation because he does not return evil for evil.  If he returns evil for evil and kills the wife and/or the man, then the devil has won because his plan to rob, kill and destroy worked.  My instructions to My children not to commit adultery also was given to protect My children from diseases which are shared in the sexual acts with multiple partners. 
    I go to every means possible to protect My children.  In the old covenant I gave My children commandments to protect them from the works of the devil, not to declare them righteous and deserving of My love if they obey them.  I gave guidance to them through the commandments to protect them from the devil who roars to show his power but actually has to have My children's obedience to him in order to curse the world and people that I created. (James 4:1-8)
    Jesus gave My children ways in which to defeat the works of the devil in their lives.  Those ways are My ways and are higher than the ways that the devil has taught My children to act.  My ways are the ways that are 100 % effective in the earth because My power is the spiritual power of love and peace which operate My heavens.(Isaiah 55:10-11)  Jesus taught that My ways are effective in the lives of My children by how much they plant My actions into their gardens of life.  It's called sowing seeds, either cooperation with the devil by sowing his seeds of destruction or cooperating with Me by sowing My seeds of love and peace.  Make no mistake, you will grow plants from the seeds that you plant in the lives of others. (Galatians 6:7) If you sow the seeds of the devil, called the flesh where he wants to work through you, you will grow plants that curse your life.  If you sow My seeds of love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness, mercy, patience and faith, then you will grow plants from those seeds that will bless your life in more ways than you dare think or imagine.  (Ephesians 3:14-20) 
   Your seeds are planted through your attitudes, words and actions.  You curse your own life through your mouth and your attitudes toward others if they are from the temptations of the devil.  James said that My children praise and bless Me but then they curse other people who are made in My image.  He said it should not be so.  (James 3:4-10)
    The devil roars in the earth through My children through their angry words, their tantrums, their rantings, their ravings, their demeaning words, their criticisms, their judgments, their divisive religious and political rhetoric and their gossiping.  The way to stop the roars of the devil and his works in your life is by being attentive to My Holy Spirit who lives inside of you and by incorporating the spiritual works of Jesus into your life.  He told you to love others as I love you. (John 13:34)
   I know that when My children obey the devil and do his works that they are deceived.  That is why Jesus asked Me to forgive His killers, because they didn't know what they were doing. You must develop the same degree of mercy, forgiving those people who wrong you.  Instead of returning evil for evil by working against people who wrong you, which the devil wants you to do, you must forgive them, do good to them, bless them and pray for them.  (John 20:21-23) In doing so, you will receive mercy from others, you will sow peace in the lives of others, receive peace back into your own life and be recognized as My child. (Matthew 5:7-9)
     Your Loving and Merciful Father

PERMISSION TO DEVOUR

Dear One,
   Would you give an intruder permission to invade your household to rob and steal from you?
   Would you stand outside your house and hand out keys to intruders, giving them permission to take everything that you own?
   Surely you would not do that.  Peter wrote as led by My Holy Spirit that My children must be sober and vigilant, always being on the lookout for the devil who walks the earth seeking whom he MAY devour.   (I Peter 5:8) Notice the key word there is "may" indicating that the devil has to have the permission of human beings to enter their lives and devour the inheritance I gave to all of My children. 


   You already know the truth that I gave the earth to My children and gave them authority and dominion over the earth.  The first man, Adam, unwisely gave the devil permission to enter the earth.  The devil continues to seek permission from My children to come into their lives so that he MAY devour them. The curses that he brings into the lives of My children rob them of their peace, their joy and their love.  Those curses steal from them their loving families, their health, their prosperity, their relationships and their faith.   
   Part of the problem is that My children do not realize that there are attitudes and actions which give permission to the devil to rob from them, steal from them and kill them.  Remember that the devil seeks whom he MAY devour, which indicates that permission in the earth must be given to him to begin his destruction.  There are many ways that he gains entrance through the doors to your life.  One of the  ways is through strife and another way is through fear.
    There is a story in My Instruction Book about a man who allowed the devil to enter into his life and curse everything that pertained to his life.  That man is Job who opened the door to the devil by fear.  Job was consumed by fear that his children would sin and so that out of fear he made sacrifices to cover those sins in the event that they did commit them.  You know the rest of the story, how he was given wrong information about Me by his friends but when he began to hear from Me and hear My personal instructions to him,  everything was restored to its perfect state many times over.  Fear in Job was what gave permission to the devil to come into his life and curse him.  So fear is one of the ways that My children allow the devil to enter into their lives and bring his curses.  Fear is belief in the works of the devil.  When Job heard from Me, his faith in Me was restored. Faith is belief in My love for you and My ability to bring My goodness in your life.  (I Peter 5:7)       
   Another way to keep from giving permission to enemy spirits to rob from you, steal from you and destroy you is the key of refusing to engage in strife with anther person. (James 3:16) Jesus told you that you must seek My kingdom and "My righteousness" and everything will be added to you.  (Matthew 6:33) My righteousness is demonstrated in My love and My peace.  Jesus told you to love others as He loves you. (John 13:34) He told you that the peacemakers are called My children.  (Matthew 5:7) Then He gave examples on how to become My righteousness in the earth, which begins by allowing My Holy Spirit to transform you into My image of love and peace. (John 16:13-15; Romans 14:17)
  Jesus even gave examples on how to refuse to engage in strife with people who are being used by the devil to tempt you to join in strife and react in anger against the person, inviting every evil spirit into the situation. The instructions that Jesus gave are that you should not oppose anyone, but if a person strikes you that you should refuse to return that evil by striking back.  He said that if someone robs your coat from you, that you should give that person your cloak also, thus robbing the devil of his power because good overcomes evil every time.  He said that you should not give the devil permission to devour you by returning evil for evil done to you, but you should do good to the person who the devil is using to tempt you to engage in strife, not only doing good to that person but praying for the person.(Matthew 5:38-48)
    We have talked about the fact that when you pray for your enemies that you are heaping My angels upon their heads to lead them into a life of joy and peace with Me.  Remember that the coals of fire spoken of that are heaped upon their heads are My angelic spirits who are sent to minister to them according to Ezekiel when he saw into the spiritual dimension around him. (Romans 12:20; Ezekiel 10:2)
    So one way to refrain from giving  permission to the devil to enter into your life and curse you is by staying out of fear, replacing any fear with faith in Me.  Faith comes by hearing My words to you. (Hebrews 11:1  Job 42:5)    Another way to refuse to give permission to the devil to curse your life is for you to refuse to engage in strife with anyone, blessing those who curse you, doing good to those those do evil to you, praying for your enemies, giving more goods to those who rob from you instead of opposing them in anger. (Ephesians 4:31-32)
    Learning My ways are what is called working out your own salvation, learning what areas or your life are cursed by the devil instead of being blessed by Me.  When you have learned My ways, then your righteousness increases and your abundant living in the earth is guaranteed. (Matthew 11:29-30))
    Do not give any demonic spirit permission to rob, steal and kill in your life by opposing people who are made in My image. (James 3:9-11) You take the power out of the lion who seeks to devour you by loving the people that he is using to tempt you to engage in his ways.  Love always overcomes evil. (Romans 12:21)
    Your Loving Father

LIONS LAY DOWN WITH THE LAMBS

Dear One,
  .One of My prophesies through the prophet Isaiah was that eventually wolves would dwell with lambs, leopards would lie down with kids, lions and calves.  I said that they would not hurt nor destroy in all of My holy mountain and the earth shall be full of My knowledge as the waters cover the sea.  That prophesy related to My new covenant with My children when My love and My power became available to My children. (Isaiah 11:6-9) 
    With all of My scriptures and prophesies, you must take them spiritually.  The devil is described as a roaring lion and as a  wolf in sheep's clothing in My Instruction Book. (I Peter 5:8; Matthew 7:15-16)
    The first thing that must happen to cause the roaring lion and wolves to lay down with the gentle sheep is that the teachings of Jesus must be followed by incorporating them into your life.  He said that His words hold power with the ability to destroy the works of the devil.   The dynamics of destroying the works of the devil are taught implicitely by Jesus in His first teachings and they are the way to find peace for your soul. (Matthew 10:16)
   Take, for instance, what My Holy Spirit wrote through Peter.  He said that your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion walks about seeking  whom he may devour. That identification of how the devil works in the earth was by divine revelation.  The devil tempts people and then uses them to do his work, coming against other people to rob, kill and destroy others either physically, mentally or spiritually.  My Spirit told you to be sober and vigilant, humbling yourself before Me, casting all of your cares upon Me.  He said that you must resist returning evil for any evil done to you and the devil will flee from you. (James 4:7-8)
    Bring the teachings of Jesus into that revelation, that caution of the Holy Spirit through Peter.  What did Jesus say to do to the people who are being used by the devil to rob, kill and destroy you?  What did He say to do to someone who strikes you on one cheek?  He did not say for you to return that evil, but to turn the other cheek.  What did Jesus say for you to do to someone who robs you of your coat?  He did not say for you to fight that person for your coat.  He said to give him your cloak, too. What did He say to do to your earthly enemies who are being used by the roaring lion, the devil, to bring evil into your life?  He said to love the people, to pray for them and to do good to them.  In doing that, you will cause the roaring lion in them to lay down in submission to the good that you do and there will be peace.  Your life will be preserved. 
    Good actions always overcome evil because I am more powerful than the father of evil.  Returning good for evil done to you will cause the person who is being used to do evil to you, as tempted by the roaring lion the devil, that good will causes the other person to be overcome with good and to lay down in submission to the goodness of the lamb in you and they will turn from their evil ways.  (Romans 12:20-21
   You can either multiply evil in the earth or you can multiply good in the earth.  Jesus came to earth to destroy the works of the devil, and He does it in you by impressing you to love the person who is doing evil to you and to bless them instead of curse them.  In so doing, loving actions by you will overcome the roaring lion who is tempting the person to do evil to you.  The person will be overcome by your good acts toward him and  the evil promptings from the devil will have to lay down in submission to acts of love from you.  The gates of hell cannot prevail when love is given others and peace is sought.
    Jesus gave you through My Holy Spirit the ministry of bringing love to others.  He gave you His peace.  He gave you the principles on how to keep peace with others.  He gave you the ways to defeat the roaring lion who wants to devour you and My other children by creating strife.  Jesus said to refuse to cooperate with evil, but instead for you to do good to those who oppose you and do evil against you.  He said that you will be called My children when you do that, causing the lion in others to lay down peacefully with the lamb in you.  Then My prophesy through Isaiah is fulfilled because the knowledge of My ways cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. (Isaiah  11:9)
   Remember that My ways are not naturally your ways and My thoughts are not naturally your thoughts, but my ways can become your ways and My thoughts can become your thoughts if you will submit yourself to My Holy Spirit who lives inside of you.  That is what is meant when I admonished you to humble yourself before Me, eager to hear My ways which will bring peace into your life. (I Peter 5:6-7; Matthew 11:29))
   Your Loving and Peaceful Father

PROMOTE GOOD OVER EVIL

Dear One,
   For what reason did My Son Jesus come into the earth? The answer to that is easy and it's found in My Instruction Book.  It was to destroy the works of the devil in the earth. (I John 3:8)
   What was My reason for Me sending My Son into the earth?   The answer to that is because I dearly love and highly prize My children and the world that I created.  Jesus didn't come to destroy the world but to save it from the works of the devil. (John 3:16-17)
   For what reason did My Son Jesus come into your life?  The answer to that is the same, to destroy the works of the devil in your life so that your relationship with Me would be restored to its perfection and by that intimate knowledge of Me that you would become My image in the earth and destroy the works of the devil.
   What was My reason for sending My Holy Spirit into the lives of My children?  So that He would lead and guide you into all truth related to restoring your loving relationship to Me which eventually results in your destroying the works of evil in your life, in the lives of your family members and in your world. 
  So, for what reason was My Son manifested in your life?  Because I love and dearly prize you and your world and I come into your life to give you the power to destroy the works of the devil.
  People seek to come into unity with Me for multiple reasons, all having to do with breaking certain curses which have come upon them.  One reason might be to have peace for their minds, releasing them from mental torture..  Another might be to heal their bodies or their relationships.  One might be to deliver them from a life of poverty or a life of crime or a life of abuse.  Whatever the reason, it is all related to destroying the works of the devil in their lives.
   If people are seeking Me to become rich, they are not seeking Me but they are seeking wealth.  If those people become rich, the wealth will corrupt them because they never learned to destroy the works of the devil in their lives. That is why Jesus told the rich man to sell all that he had and give it to the poor, because his personal motivation was to enter into My kingdom and keep his wealth, enjoying the benefits of My family but also enjoying the benefits of his former evil gain.
   If people seek Me for healing of their bodies, they will be healed by Me and instructed to seek Me for My wisdom on how to stay out of the thoughts, attitudes and actions that caused the problem.  (John 15:14)  If the people return to their former ways, they will be in need of healing again. But if they work with Me in destroying the works of the devil in their lives, they will remain healed and in unity with Me, enjoying the benefits of our relationship.  (Luke 11:20)
   If people seek Me for healing of their family relationships but continue in their previous cooperation with evil attitudes and actions, they will receive nothing because they are furthering evil in their families instead of destroying the works of the devil with My personal and intimate instructions. (I Corinthians 13:1-3)
   My children speak that the devil comes to rob, kill and destroy but I came to earth so that My children would have the abundant life, a life full of peace, love, goodness, kindness. Yet some of My children persist in living by killing devices, eager to destroy people who are made in My image.  That motivation does not come from Me but from their spiritual enemy, the devil. My children have been robbed again, motivated by fear to live by their killing devices.  They know neither My scriptures nor My power.  (Matthew 10:29)
  My children promote actions that rob from the poor and further the rich.  They forget that I said that true religion is to take care of  the orphans and widows in their afflictions and to keep themselves unspotted from by the evil in the world.  (James 1:27)
  Some of My children speak fear, division, disgust, criticism, judgment, sarcasm, anger, strife, jealousy and envy from an unbridled tongue and thus curse their own lives. (James 1:25-26)  It should not be so.  My children forget that it is My love that rescued them and that I have given My children the ministry of loving others just as I love them, blessing others instead of cursing others.  (John 13:34-35)
   Let your motivation in the earth be loving people and the world like I do and become My children who destroy the works of the devil, not joining with the devil in cursing people and  the world.
   Become My blessed children, children of love.   Faith only works by love. (Matthew 5:9; Galatians 5:6-7)
   Your Loving Father

PRECIOUS FLESH AND BLOOD

Dear One,
   The thoughts, attitudes and actions of My children which work against them, rather than working for them, are the ones that battle against other people, against flesh and blood, instead of making their battle against the spiritual principalities and powers in the air which tempt people to oppose each other.  The god of those destructive spirits is the devil.   Thus, he is the enemy of My children, not their flesh and blood enemies to which they always attribute the cause of their problems.  (Ephesians 6:12)
   I said that My children heal, not kill; that they cast out demons, not oppose other people.  (Matthew 6:16; Matthew 10:8) As long as My children oppose each other instead of their real enemy, the devil, they will not walk in My family blessings which flow constantly to My children.  (Matthew 6:23-24) Jesus was explicit about that truth from the beginning of His teachings.  He said to bless your earthly enemies, to do good to those who oppose you, to pray for them.  He said to bless those who curse you and do all manner of evil against you. He wanted to coach My children to remain on the side of blessings at all times and to never join with the side of curses lest they become cursed by binding themselves to their spiritual enemies by obeying those temptations to return evil for evil. (Matthew 5:43-48)
   Jesus taught that there are two kingdoms, My kingdom of blessings and then there is the kingdom of the devil which issues curses upon My children when they obey his temptations. Those who are taught by My Spirit are the ones who know that truth.  The ones who have not obeyed My admonition to be filled with My Spirit are ill equipped to even receive My truths, let alone incorporate them into their lives.
   Rather than hearing My wisdom in all matters which concern them, some of My children accept the errors taught by their manipulative religious leaders and political leaders who delight in stirring up battles against flesh and blood.  They oppose people who are of differing beliefs, forgetting that they were blinded at one time.  My children blindly accept the divisive rhetoric of their political leaders who manipulate My children with their hateful and divisive beliefs.  Just because people call themselves by My name does not mean that they are in unity with me.  Often they are using Me and My children as their pawns to enhance their destructive views and their religious and political goals.  I said that you will know them by their fruit.  If their fruit is the sour fruit that opposes people, inflames people, ridicules people and destroys the lives of people, then they are not of Me.  They are of their enemy, the devil, and they will follow him to destruction because of the seeds that are in the sour fruit that they espouse.  (Matthew 7:15-21) They are blinded just like the people they cause to be blinded.
   The good fruit from the good trees, which are of My loving family, are the ones who do what Jesus said to do. They do what My Spirit told Paul, Peter, James and John to teach you; that being to love your enemy, to do good to those who are obeying the devil in opposing and injuring you, to pray for the people who are in darkness, to only battle the demons who cause all problems.  Use My spiritual language by praying in My Holy Spirit.  Then you make your battle with the actual enemy, the devil.  Jesus said He cast out demons with His word.  He still casts out demons with His words through My Spirit's prayers.  When you allow Me to battle for you by praying in the Holy Spirit, then you can effectively say that the battle is not yours but is mine.  I have the spiritual arsenal to defeat your real enemy, the devil.  That is why My promise to my children was that I would live in them and walk in them and pray through them and battle their real enemy by My powerful words.  (Matthew 8:16)
   Jesus came to earth to destroy the works of the devil,  not to destroy people.  Your calling in the earth is the same, to destroy the works of the devil, not to oppose and destroy other people. 
    When My children become pawns of men who stir up strife by teaching them to oppose My other children and return evil for evil, they depart from Me and I don't recognize them as being My children because they no longer do My will in the earth.  (Matthew 7:22-23) They contribute to the plans of the father of evil instead of destroying his works in the earth.  They remove themselves from their rightful inheritance.  They don't bear My image which is peace and they don't act out of My standard which is love.  However, when My children return to love and peace, their blessings are restored because they have rejoined the family of love and left the family of destruction. (Luke 15:11-24)
   I am your good father who constantly issues My blessings to My children.  Don't remove yourself from My blessings by opposing people who are made in My image.  My standard of behavior is always love.(Luke 12:31-32)
   Your Loving and Gracious Father

STANDARD OF LOVE

STANDARD OF LOVE
Dear One,
   When the enemy of My children, the devil, comes in like a flood, the standard that Jesus lifts up is the standard of love. There is no other standard that He taught.  He always taught My love.  The standard behavior of Jesus was love toward all of humanity.  He exemplified My love and forgiveness when He said on the cross, "Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they are doing."(Isaiah 59:18-19)
   My standard actions are always love toward My children who are created in My image.  My only condemnation and judgment are toward the devil and his demons who torment My children.  So the standard actions of My children toward others who are used by the devil are the standard of love. loving others as I love you.  (Matthew 5:44-48)
   My Spirit taught that truth through Paul, one who had previously been used as an instrument of evil to destroy My children.  After Paul became filled with My Holy Spirit, he realized that My children should never battle against flesh and blood, like he had previously done, but that they should only battle against the demonic principalities and powers of the air who temp My children to do their evil acts.   He said all battles should be done in your prayer closets, praying at all times and in all seasons in the Holy Spirit.  When My children stop fighting each other and start battling against the devil and his demons by praying in the Spirit, then evil will be defeated in all areas of their lives. (Ephesians 6:10-18)
   The minute My children battle against My children who are made in My image, they depart from Me and join in with their demonic spiritual enemies, battling against their earthly sisters and brothers.  They will be consumed by the evil who tempted both sides.  It has been like that from the beginning when the first man allowed the devil into the earth to deceive My children and engage them in wars against each other.  Yet, My children who do not know Me glorify wars as actions of patriotism.  Glorifying wars glorifies the devil and his works. (James 4:1-11)
    Jesus said that not everyone will enter into My kingdom except those who do My will.  My will is that love will always be the standard actions of My children because I am love. (Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:4-5) He said that even if they cast out demons, prophesy and do many works, I will say to them that they departed from Me by doing works of iniquity; therefore, they withdrew themselves from My protection because they changed sides from the side of good to the devil's side of evil thoughts, attitudes and actions.   (Matthew 6:20-24; Isaiah 59:1-4)  They made flesh and blood their enemies instead of identifying the demons of hell as their enemies. 
   My children who place evil blockages between themselves and Me by battling with flesh and blood will not enjoy My kingdom life while in the earth.  They will wallow in destruction until the ends of their lives and wonder what happened to My blessings that they were supposed to inherit. They never actually knew Me intimately, neither knew the Power of the Holy Spirit nor the New Covenant scriptures.  (Mark 12:24)
   A standard is an element by which to measure excellence of character.  Jesus proclaimed His standard when He told you to love others as He and I love you. (John 13:34) Love became the standard of My children at that time. It is the standard of My new covenant with My children.  My children should heed the command of Jesus.  When they do, My kingdom life will flood into their lives while in the earth.  (Luke 11:20)

ABSOLUTES

Dear One,
   There are few absolutes in your world.  One sure, tried and true absolute is that everything I have is yours because you are My child.  Yes, I said that everything I have is yours, My peace, My love, My goodness, My blessings, My supernatural power, My joy, My salvation from all evil, My righteousness, My prosperity, My grace, My forgiveness, My authority in the earth, My kingdom, and My life. They were all bought and the price paid by My son Jesus.  As you know, they became yours when you were born of My Spirit, when My Spirit came into you and  created a new life within you.  The start of the appropriation of My gifts for you is begun when you are baptized by My Holy Spirit because He is your advocate who dispenses My gifts to My children who desire them.  He is the promise that I gave through Jesus when He told them to wait for My promise, the One who would explain all of the teaching of Jesus, one who would be your counselor, advocate, tutor, the Spirit of truth, the One who reveals of all things hidden and the One who reveals My love to My children. (Acts 1:6-8; John 16:7-15)
    There is a reason that Jesus said to seek My kingdom and My righteousness.  It's because when you seek My kingdom and find it, all of My gifts become legally yours because you are My child.  Then when you seek My righteousness, which is becoming conformed to My image, the dispensing of My gifts to you begins and you become identified in the heavens as My child by your character traits.  Your spiritual royalty is then established and My hosts of angels bring to you all the benefits of being My child.  That doesn't happen all at once.  It happens precept by precept, line by line, here a little, there a little, because your human brain can only handle a little truth at a time.  It takes time for you to take off the old evil habits and put on My good habits which are always character traits of love.  Religious laws are stripped away and spiritual truths are incorporated into your mind.
    My love for you has nothing to do with your ability to assimilate spiritual truths.  My love is never earned.  It is yours because I am love.  Your ability to receive all of My blessings depends upon your seeking to become My righteousness in the earth.  You cannot return evil for evil done to you and expect to receive My blessings.  You cannot hold grudges, being unforgiving, and expect to receive My blessings. You cannot strike back at someone who strikes you and expect to receive My blessings.  You cannot only love those who love you and expect to receive My blessings.  I said when you return good for evil, when you bless those who curse you, when you turn the other cheek, when you love your enemies as I love them, then you are known as My children in the earth and in the heavens.  My blessings to you in the earth and My blessings for you in the heavens will flow like a river to you. (I John 5:2-6)
   Every big and little thing that I have in My heaven belong to you as My child.  Seek My righteousness and receive your blessings.  Your name is written on them.  No one else can have them but you.  They are waiting for you. (Matthew 6:33)
   Your Kind and Loving Father

DISCIPLESHIP


Dear One,
   We have talked at length about what discipline is, that it is discipleship, training a being into becoming what is in the image of the trainer.  Discipleship is not punishment.  It is guidance and training, leading the pupil into the right thoughts, attitudes and behavior as taught by the parent, teacher, guide, master or trainer.   Discipleship requires the time of the trainer and of the learner.  If there is inadequate time given on the part of the trainer, then the trainee becomes unmanageable and undisciplined, ignorant of what is required.  Often the trainer punishes the trainee for doing something that the trainer was delinquent in teaching the trainee.  The problem is not the trainee, it's the lack of time spent by the trainer in leading and guiding his trainee. (Ephesians 2:4)

   So where does punishment come in?  It is said that sin has its own punishments.  Those punishments are not pleasant because they are the result of the trainee getting into dangerous territory which causes destruction to people.  So it is the effects of disobedience that brings punishment upon a disciple or trainee. Real discipleship, whether in parenting or in training, is given to protect the disciple from the effects of making bad choices which will cause harm to himself and others.
   Jesus said to his disciples that they were discipled by His words.  There was never any sickness, diseases or abuse given to people to whom He ministered.  He healed their sickness and diseases and took from them the broken hearts that come from abuses done to them.  He cured them instead of punishing them.  Their punishment came from the devil who tempts My children to think and do evil works.  He tempts them and then he brings evil results from their obedience to him. His works are the punishment that comes from disobedience.  When My children return to Me after making the bad choices which resulted in bad things happening to them, I restore them to My family and bless them because they have returned to Me and have turned from the bad choices that came from obeying the temptations of the evil one.   I do not punish.  I restore.
    How do I relate this to forgiveness?  When an offense is done to you, the temptation comes from hell for you to punish the one who offends you.  Also, the prompting comes from Me to forgive someone who offends you.  You have the choice because I gave My children the will to choose between good and evil.  Even the cartoonists in your world have portrayed that scenario when they draw a devil from hell whispering in one ear and an angel from Me whispering in the other ear.  That is exactly what happens. 
    When My children have allowed My Holy Spirit, who is My personal tutor for them, to lead and guide them into truth, they realize that I am not the one who punishes, but that I am the One who heals people from the effects of the punishment that was exacted by the devil upon the ones who obey his temptations.  I am never angry with My children who make bad choices in obedience to the devil.  I am always eager to embrace and restore them to My family and My blessings.  I grieve for them because they have suffered the punishment from the evil one.  And I am always waiting for the prodigals to return to Me for My love and My blessings.
   So when someone hurts you, I tutor you to forgive the person, refusing to wish the punishment of the devil from coming upon them.  When you don't forgive, you also suffer the effects of the punishment because you are bound to the offender in your thoughts. When you forgive the person, you release the person from punishment and you release yourself from the punishment caused by the situation.  When you forgive a person, you incorporate the offender in your efforts to defeat the work of the devil in the offensive situation.  That is why I said to do good to your enemies.  In doing so, you tenderize your enemy who hurt you, causing your enemy to give up his or her anger at you and he or she releases you from the offense that caused the situtation in the beginning. 
   Forgiveness is one of My most powerful tools to aid My children in defeating the works of the devil.  Refusing to forgive a person aids the devil in doing his work in the earth.  When you refuse to forgive others, you work in cooperation with the evil,; but when you forgive others you work in cooperation with My goodness in the world.
   Jesus taught you by His example of forgiving the ones who killed him and asking Me to forgive them.  His remarks about, "They know not what they do," meant that they did not know that they were furthering the devil's work.  You must maintain the same attitudes, that anyone who wrongs you does not know that he or she is furthering the devil's work.  Therefore, they deserve your forgiveness because I forgive you.(Luke 23:34)
    Release yourself from promoting the devil and begin to forgive others so that you promote My kingdom.(Matthew 5:14-15)

FORGIVING YOURSELF

Dear One,
  Some people find it easy to forgive others but find it difficult to forgive themselves for mistakes, for bad choices, for iniquities, for frivolously disobeying civil laws, for forgetfulness, for yielding to temptations, and for disappointing their parents, their children or their peers.  Forgiveness extends to yourself as well as to others.
  Since I immediately forgive you of any infractions, you must learn to immediately forgive yourself. Otherwise, you "beat yourself up" over something that never existed in My mind but only existed in your own mind and in the minds of others.  "Beating yourself up" emotionally is counterproductive because its effect is the same as being unforgiving toward others, it sets up the flow of hormones which will actually "beat up" your body unmercifully, causing undue chemical stress on your immune system, your peace of mind, your foundation of love and your actions toward others.  It is a result of the spirit of guilt which comes from hell. 
   I don't make you feel guilty of anything.  I am the rescuer from guilt, condemnation and judgment.  Guilt is a tool of your enemy, the devil, who exists to curse My children in an effort to rob them of their inheritance from Me. When you choose not to forgive yourself, you are plagued with guilt from hell instead of blessed with forgiveness from Me.   
   We have talked many times about forgiving others.  You need to relate being unforgiving to deeming the person guilty.  When you refuse to forgive others, you are intent on personally finding them guilty of a wrongdoing either against you or against someone you care deeply about.  You want to make that person feel like he or she deserves your condemnation and judgment.  You want to exert your being right over that person, in essence dominating him or her, and you want to see that the person is punished by you.  What happens is that you also get punished because your thoughts, emotions, attitudes and actions are negatively affected chemically by the hormones of your own body which were given by Me to protect you from apparent danger, called the fight or flight syndrome.  Instead of being righteous in the situation by letting the incident go, you want to be right, declaring the other person wrong. You fight the person instead of fighting the devil who brings the guilt to your mind.
   Refusing to forgiving yourself is even more sinister.  You become your own enemy by refusing to forgive yourself, You deny My forgiveness for you and become judge and jury of yourself.  Hospitals are full of people who refuse to forgive themselves of things they have done.  Their thoughts, attitudes and emotions have "beaten" them up by turning against them by their refusing to love themselves as I love them, thus forgiving themselves. 
   You must put your own mistakes, your bad choices, your bad actions, plus your bitterness toward others and yourself on the cross of Jesus.  He died for the sins, mistakes and bad choices of everyone.  You must forgive yourself and other people for not being perfect.  (Romans 5:8) Nobody is perfect, no, not one.  Jesus, Himself, said that even He was not good, that I am the only good Being.  That remark means that He was tempted to sin while in the earth just like other humans, but I am resident in heaven where there is no temptation by evil to sin.(Matthew 19:16-17)
   When My children seek My kingdom they seek liberty, freedom from all manner of evil.  One benefit of your finding the right key to freedom is the key of forgiveness of yourself.  When you do, you become white as snow, free of self condemnation, free of guilt and free of judgment.  I don't judge you.  You judge yourself when you refuse to forgive yourself just like you judge others when you refuse to forgive them.(Isaiah 1:18-19)
   Release yourself from the bondage to guilt and unreasonable expectations.  Forgive yourself for not being perfect.  Bring freedom into your life by releasing yourself from guilt and self incrimination.  Jesus bought that freedom for you.  Enjoy the benefits of forgiving yourself because your relationship with Me is restored immediately when you get your mind off of yourself and onto Me again.  There is perfect peace when your mind is set on Me. (Isaiah 26:3-4)
