Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Luke 6:276:27 “But I say to you who hear: Loveyour enemies, do goodto those who hate you,
God teaches us not to hate but love and do good to fellows. Leviticus 19:1719:17 ‘You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him.
Hatred comes from the world and Satan
. If a son of God keeps the hatred towards his fellows, he comes from this world and Satan, cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.
1 John 3:153:15 Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him
There are two places where the hatred stays as follows:
10:21 “Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a fatherhischild; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.
10:22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
The signs are as follow:
Why is there hatred inside marriage? Because there is no love of God so the marriage cannot reach the spiritual one.
- Sacrificing others for the selfish aim.
- Quarrelling in marriage.
- There is an infidelity until divorce in marriage.
For that reason, the love of God must be present in marriage.
The signs are as follow:
- The marriage follows Jesus as the Head.
5:22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
5:23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.
5:24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, soletthe wivesbeto their own husbands in everything.
5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
The wives submit to their husbands in everything.
The husbands love their wives as their own body and do not be harsh toward them. The husbands can lead the marriage to the spiritual marriage through the system of the right shepherding.
1 Corinthians 7:3-4
7:3 Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband.
7:4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does.And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wifedoes.
Thus the husband and wife can have each other.
The result is Jesus becomes the Head who is responsible in the marriage.
The children obey their parents in everything.
- Holding the marriage formula that is one (husband) plus one (wife) equals one.
Between husband and wife there must be the sign of the cross or the love of God. The practice is confessing and forgiving the sin each other.
3:14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
The result is the love of God binding and perfecting the marriage to be united and joyful until entering to the spiritual marriage on glorious clouds.
Genesis 37:4, 11
37:4 But when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him and could not speak peaceably to him.
37:11 And his brothers envied him, but his father kept the matterin mind.
For example, the brothers of Joseph who hate Joseph.
1 Corinthians 3:3
3:3 for you are still carnal. For wherethere areenvy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving likemeremen?
As the servant of God or the life that serves and ministers to Him, we must have His love in our life. The signs are as follow:
Acts 7:9-107:9 “And the patriarchs, becoming envious, sold Joseph into Egypt. But God was with him
- Persevering in the right shepherding.
37:2 Thisisthe history of Jacob. Joseph,beingseventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brothers. And the ladwaswith the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives; and Joseph brought a bad report of them to his father.
In persevering, we are sanctified through the true teaching Word so we can live in honesty. We can help and encourage each other.
- Obeying the Word whatever the risk may come.
37:13 And Israel said to Joseph, “Are not your brothers feedingthe flockin Shechem? Come, I will send you to them.” So he said to him, “Here I am.”
- Willingly experiencing the flesh suffering without sin together with Jesus or the tunic is dipped in the blood.
37:31 So they took Joseph’s tunic, killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the tunic in the blood.
We will experience the life renewal from carnal men to spiritual ones.
7:10 and delivered him out of all his troubles, and gave him favor and wisdom in the presence of Pharaoh, king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house
The result is God gives grace and wisdom
, as follows:
- The wisdom and grace of God to make us successful.
- The wisdom and grace to face the hunger and Antichrist.
- The wisdom and grace to unite the body of Christ.
- The wisdom and grace of God to greet Jesus’ second coming.
22:20 He who testifies to these things says,“Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christbewith you all.Amen.
God blesses us.
