Love is All We Need

People have the choice to love or to hate,  The Creator of all life sent His only begotten son into the world to show mankind how to walk the earth with one another in a right way.  The religious leaders in Jesus’s day were doing the same things that the extremists are still doing today by exalting themselves above others and creating division and hatred towards those that don’t fit into their ideal box of acceptable standards.  Jesus however triumphed over them when he willingly laid down his life in obedience to the Father.  That one selfless act of love, opened a doorway for people in the world to either follow and enter into eternal life, or to ignore and deny Jesus as the righteous One by continuing down a path of self-serving destruction that ultimately leads to outer darkness away from the Creator. 

Jesus made known what type of people would be granted access to eternal life with God, and also who it was that would be cast away due to their treatment of others in Matthew 25:34-46.  Jesus separates the good from the bad by what each individual did for those that could do nothing for them.  The people that helped the “least of them” were granted access into the eternal Kingdom of life, while those that refused to share their food, water and clothing, or welcome or visit the “least of them” went away into eternal punishment away from God.  

God is perfect love, and He created us to be partakers in that divine love by being in union with Him, but those that have no love for others have never known the only True God and Creator of all good.  God is so good that He even gives the evil person a chance to repent and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior no matter how much they did or didn’t do right in their lifetime.  We read this in the scriptures found in Luke 23:39-43 when the two criminals were hung next to him on the cross; one his right and one on his left.  The criminal on the left mocked him, but the one on the right knowing that he was being paid back his just penalty of death asked Jesus to remember him when he comes into his kingdom, to which Jesus replied, “Truly I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”  

A person that thinks they are righteous or good enough without Jesus will never make it into eternal life, because no one was found worthy enough with their own human ability to escape the bondage of corruption in the world.  That is why God sent us a Savior into the world.  Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and be transformed by renewing your mind in the Word of God. I am not referring to religion as a means to eternal life, but a personal relationship with the Creator.  When a person knows who they are as a child of God, and how greatly they are loved, it is impossible for that person to not want to share that same love with those that are broken and hurting in the world.  At least that has been my own experience since discovering a life with God’s Holy Spirit leading me.  

I had a personal encounter with God on Good Friday, March 2016.  God told me that He wanted to answer my question that I kept asking in prayer.  My question was how could we stop the evil that was destroying the children and families so severely at that time in AZ.  He said, “Only one thing can destroy evil completely and that is love.”  I thought that was too simple, but then I realized that man had made something so simple into such a difficult burden by polluting the world with so much wrong thinking.  In order to destroy evil with love, it requires people to understand what love actually is, and what it isn’t.  Love is patient, love is kind, love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.  It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never ends.  Faith, hope and love will remain; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8,13.

During my encounter with God that afternoon, I asked Him if anyone would believe that He visited me and shared many things with me that I would not have otherwise known, and He said this; “You might be surprised to learn that most people that say they know me, have never known me.”  He was correct of course, and I quickly discovered that most religious leaders couldn’t accept that God would show up in all of His glory to have a conversation with a woman that really didn’t go to church, but pours out her heart in prayer for all of the hurting children and individuals in the world.  God not only came and spoke to me, He also answered all of my prayers and He transformed our state in to one of the best in the nation when it comes to the treatment of our children, the oppressed-homeless, addicted, in prisoned, and the “least of them”.   Thank YOU Jesus!  

There are many areas that still need focus and help in our state, so I encourage everyone to begin praying for the things that need divine intervention.  I believe that issues like sex trafficking, child abuse, drug addiction, sickness, mental illness and more are all coming to an end.  The numbers might say differently today, but I watched and prayed every step of the way for the transformation of our Foster Care System since 2015, and God moved every mountain out of the way in order to fulfill those prayers and provide a better path for the children of our state to know love.  

God does hear our prayers, because He told me that all of my prayers had filled His bowl and He was arousing Himself to come and trample down my enemies.  My enemies are the same enemies as everyone else in this world.  They are demonic spirits that are working to destroy people with division, hatred, bitterness, greed, lust and anger.  Don’t pray that your life will be better, pray that blessings will come to all those that have hurt you!  I realized one day while stuck in traffic with angry, stressed out people all around me that if I ever wanted to see good in this world, all of these people around me would need to be blessed and know that they are loved, so I began praying for every single person in the miles and miles of traffic each day.  That was what caused God to come and visit me.  Maybe I was a bit extreme, but it takes radical love to see radical changes, so I gave it all that I had, and believed that God could do what we were never going to be able to do on our own.  Melt the hardened hearts by pouring out love everywhere!

Crusade-noun

US /kruˈseɪd/

a long and determined attempt to achieve something you strongly believe in:

We believe in LOVE.  We believe in helping others and promoting the good of ALL the people.  We refuse to ignore anyone in need when we are able to help them.  We choose to bless and pray for all people so that we might live in a peaceful habitation without fear or dread.  When people begin to pray prayers in agreement with each other and God’s Word, communities begin to change quickly!  Evil is destroyed by love, but anger and strife cause division and all types of negativity that breed more evil, so we avoid attacking, blaming, shaming, condemning or any contribution to the wickedness.

Love, honor and respect for God and others are godly characteristics and the way of the Kingdom of God.

Love defined by the NIV Bible

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

I was a relentless volunteer sent by God to correct oppressions and re-build the devastated communities left behind after the worst economic collapse in our nation’s history.  God spoke to me out of a whirlwind that was spinning outside my window one day, and told me that He was now arousing Himself to come out and trample down the enemy that had caused so much suffering.  He told me that I didn’t have to worry anymore, because He was stepping into the middle of the mess and would put all of my enemies under my feet.  He went on to say that the next thing to happen was for us to go up.  He said that before that can happen people must turn and help each other.

Light of Life

God is so good! Don’t let go of the good! He will never leave you nor forsake you, and there is nothing better than being wrapped in his heart of love.

Grace, Mercy & Miracles

And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (Gen 1:2)

It’s difficult to imagine beauty in the midst of great darkness, but that is exactly what God is asking us to do in our own lives and the lives around us. We are to rise up and overcome great challenges and set backs that have left many hidden in pits, trapped in webs of deception and even locked away in prisons or our own mental cells of hell. Anyone that has come out of those circumstances can tell you that there was a time when they didn’t see any light or way of escape, and it is in that moment that all seems lost and hope has departed.

Out of desperation, people grasp in the darkness for something not…

Our God

You’re a proven help in time of trouble—
    more than enough and always available whenever I need you.
So we will never fear
    even if every structure of support[b] were to crumble away.
    We will not fear even when the earth quakes and shakes,
    moving mountains and casting them into the sea.
For the raging roar of stormy winds and crashing waves
    cannot erode our faith in you.
Pause in his presence
God has a constantly flowing river whose sparkling streams
    bring joy and delight to his people.
    His river flows right through the city of God Most High,
    into his holy dwelling places.[c]
God is in the midst of his city,[d] secure and never shaken.
    At daybreak his help will be seen with the appearing of the dawn.
When the nations are in uproar with their tottering kingdoms,
    God simply raises his voice
    and the earth begins to disintegrate before him.
Here he comes!
    The Commander!
    The mighty Lord of Angel Armies is on our side.
    The God of Jacob fights for us!

8–9 Everyone look!
    Come and see the breathtaking wonders of our God.
    For he brings both ruin and revival.
    He’s the one who makes conflicts end
    throughout the earth,
    breaking and burning every weapon of war.

    Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God.
    I am the God above all the nations,
    and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.
