“The time is now. There isn’t much time. For some, there is no time: time is up. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for another – this love, such love, My love for you.
How the Father was glorified when I laid down My life for you. No greater love is this. The greatest command is to love, love as I loved – love as I love. Is the servant greater than its master? No, I say. Love searches all things. Love reminds us who we are in Christ Jesus, the Son, because of the Father. Love examines all things and searches the heart, mind and soul. It forgives, surrenders at all costs. Love is priceless. It has no agenda. It is pure, holy and light. It pierces the dark. Such love confounds the enemy. He is under your feet.
You must learn to love as I loved. Love Me as I love you, love others as you do yourself: learn to share and care. This love defeats pride, stubbornness and stupidity. It overcomes darkness – a purity. Do you see? For when you love, you love Me. I am love. Search your heart. This is the greatest command. No one comes to the Father but by Me. Love is required to enter heaven. I will ask you, and you will tell Me if you loved – learned to love, shared My love, lived My love, breathed My love, even died for My love.
For every sin, there is a consequence. My love covers sin. My blood covered all sin at Calvary. You must seek My love and forgiveness to enter in. There is no sin in heaven. No sin is allowed or accepted. Because sin is death. And love is life. You must choose life or death. Choose life. Choose love. Choose Me. I love you.
Love, Jesus the Son”
For he says,
“In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:2, NIV)
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. (John 15:13, NKJV)
“The most important one,” answered Jesus,“ is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:29-31, NIV)
I assure you and most solemnly say to you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him. (John 13:16, AMP)
The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. (1 John 4:8, NASB)
This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. (1 John 1:5-7, NASB)
So, as God’s own chosen people, who are holy [set apart, sanctified for His purpose] and well-beloved [by God Himself], put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience [which has the power to endure whatever injustice or unpleasantness comes, with good temper]; bearing graciously with one another, and willingly forgiving each other if one has a cause for complaint against another; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so should you forgive. Beyond all these things put on and wrap yourselves in [unselfish] love, which is the perfect bond of unity [for everything is bound together in agreement when each one seeks the best for others]. (Colossians 3:12-14, AMP)
Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not envy, is not boastful, is not conceited, does not act improperly, is not selfish, is not provoked, and does not keep a record of wrongs. Love finds no joy in unrighteousness but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7, HCSB)
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:6-7, NIV)
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. (1 John 4:18, NIV)
But in all these things we have full victory through God who showed his love for us. (Romans 8:37, ICB)
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. (Luke 10:19, KJV)
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:43-48, NASB)
These souls shouted in a loud voice, “Holy and true Lord, how long until you judge the people of the earth and punish them for killing us?” (Revelation 6:10, ICB)
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.” (John 3:16-25, NASB)
My son, observe the commandment of your father And do not forsake the teaching of your mother; Bind them continually on your heart; Tie them around your neck. When you walk about, they will guide you; then you sleep, they will watch over you; And when you awake, they will talk to you. For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light; And reproofs for discipline are the way of life. (Proverbs 6:20-23, NASB)
There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you. (Deuteronomy 18:10-12, NASB)
Today I ask heaven and earth to be witnesses. I am offering you life or death, blessings or curses. Now, choose life! Then you and your children may live. (Deuteronomy 30:19, ICB)
