Knowing Him

The Beloved Disciple wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1 John chapter 2:

3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.

4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

You can claim to be a follower of Christ but if you do not walk in Love then He does not know you.  This is rather a simple test to differentiate believers from all others.  Agape Love makes the difference in fully knowing Jesus and being able to walk as He walked.  Love is at the core of everything Jesus did as He walked the earth and in order to understand The Way, we must walk in the same manner.  The things of this world are but temporary in nature so it becomes critical that our focus be maintained on the Spiritual aspects of life.

Our connection with FATHER will be stronger as we walk in Love and produce the fruit associated with Love.  As we produce good fruit our ministry increases and we are able to open doors which were previously closed to us.  Our day is simplified because we are moving to a state where we only do what FATHER tells us and we leave all other activities alone.  That does not mean we won’t be busy for FATHER may give us a notable task to accomplish requiring much time and resource.  However, we will simply be doing the right thing everyday.

9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.

10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.

11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

Love is required for us to walk in the light thus without Love we will surely walk in darkness.  How critical and simple is that Truth!  As we pursue the fullness of Love in our walk, FATHER will open our eyes to Truth in all areas.  When we see that Truth we will not use it to divide but to have compassion on those who are groping around in the dark.  We will walk in a greater understanding of the needs of those around us and be able to minister accordingly.  With this understanding there will be no need to argue any point; unless you have revelation about the issue there is nothing to share.  Love allows you to share if the person is open to change but if the person is firm in their religious belief then you will refrain from entering a discussion on that topic.

Love identifies and exposes darkness thus we are able to pray appropriately.  Jesus spent much time in prayer and communion with FATHER… so should we.  Love connects Heaven and earth and allows us to bring forth Heaven to earth according to HIS plan.  Without Love and the light, we would be unable to accomplish our mandate.  We must be able to see in order to walk out our calling.  If there are areas missing clarity in your life, you might consider asking FATHER to reveal any unforgiveness holding back the light.  Unforgiveness may be the one factor holding back the illumination required for us to fully carry out our mission.  There isn’t anything in the past that should be retained.  Let us remove any weight which would prevent us from walking in the light, life, and Love of FATHER.  Knowing Him is greater than any harm done to us in the past.
