Today’s word is from 1 John 4:18-19
"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us."
If God is love, and there is no fear in love, then all fear is of the devil.
If love defines God, then fear defines the devil. The anointing of the Lord feels like indescribable love, and the presence of evil is filled with indescribable fear and torment.
I want to make this absolutely clear so that there can be no doubt that satan is the author of all fear. All fear is of the devil and it has no place in any believer’s life.
To know the Lord is to know perfect love.
The God we serve is a loving, forgiving God who is full of grace and mercy.
The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
Religion depicts the Lord as this fierce, angry, stern and scary being that rules with an iron fist.
Dead religion depicts God as a god who is looking for ways to send people to hell and a god who dominates by fear. That is why dead religion is driven by fear. Friend, one of the ways that you can know for sure that you are in a group that is serving the Lord is that the Lord’s fingerprints of love and grace are all over. If you are in a group that uses fear to control, or fear to motivate… be sure that the Lord is nowhere to be found. Take your family and run away as fast as you can!
Family, get rid of every inner image that depicts the Lord in any other way than compassionate, merciful, full of grace, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love, in Jesus name!
Renew your mind and be made perfect in His unfailing, unending, unconditional love.
The love of the Father sent His only begotten Son to earth to give His life for you on the cross of Calvary. He did not do all of that just to reject you and disqualify you.
Jesus said that He did not come into this world to condemn, but that the world through
Him might be saved!
Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so!
