Happy Ever After [ a series in LOVE] Part.3

From the beginning God has been spreading His message, but for thousands of years we, His children did not listen. We refused to understand His [simple] words. 'Love each other as I have loved you.' God was simply saying; I Am Love, and you are of me; therefore be Love.

Fortunate for us all, God is persistent in this message, and He saw that we are all visual. Men are not visual; Man, is visual. This is why Jesus was given to us. To allow us to visualize God's Love that was present all along.

God says it well here:
Genesis 1-2
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters."

In verse 2, God says 'And the Spirit of God was hovering...' meaning He was everywhere, and His love was everywhere. He paints a picture in His beginning Words to us, as we would need to see (visualize) Him, and as He says 'and darkness was covering the deep waters,' he was Showing [our] fears to come.

Just as many are scared of the deep, so He knew we would be scared. The "deep waters," symbolizes all of our troubles, concerns, worries, and everything that consumes our lives that does not enable us to be as He is.

You see, God knew already that we would not have faith until we saw Him, this is why He showed us, but as Man, believes in a body, something they can feel, God came to earth in the form of Man (Jesus, was His ultimate visual aid).

His name was given to us, when He told Moses "I Am." In Exodus, just when a massive blessing from God was going to be bestowed onto His children, once again, a faithless people needed more than God's word, buts reassurance. Therefore God knowing full well His children's hearts & minds, He tells Moses...

God says it well here:

Exodus 3:14
God replied to Moses "I Am who I Am. Say this to my people of Israel: I Am has sent me to you."

This is where many get confused, or rather caught up with endless thinking. "I Am," not only was a representation of God's name, but moreover God was speaking not only to the people of Israel (mankind), but to Moses as well. God was speaking Truth to Moses, and He was saying to Him, as He has been saying to all of us all this time; I Am who I am, because I am everything, and I Am you (everything, and anything, including flesh). 

Flesh = Jesus
Jesus = God in form of Man
Man = all the characters spoken of in the Bible.

God says it well here:
 John 1:14 

 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Once again, the world has quarreled over the details, instead of just being.

Jesus, is known as God's only begotten son. Not His only! son. We are all His children, and as Jesus was, so can we be. The difference between us, and Jesus, was the fact that He was God's [begotten] son. 

Begotten (

1.(esp. of a male parent) to procreate or generate (offspring). cause; produce as an effect

Jesus, was not only God's child as we all are, but His reason for being (effect on the world) was to be exactly as God is (simply without compromise), and as He intended for all of us to be.

Jesus would not compromise anything, for what opposed God's word, and that is why God took on Flesh for us. To show us we too, could do it.  

From there, an endless relationship as we know it began. A relationship of ups, and downs. A relationship filled with confrontation. 

You have heard it, 'Without conflict, relationships are not tested, and cannot grow.'

Two conflicting persons = openess
Openess = growth
Growth = Understanding
Understanding = relationship

[A relationship that gives way to opportunity for conflict, yet that relationship is open and honest, will experience growth, and understanding. Each (person's in a relationship) other allows the relationship to prosper. [Testing is good.]

 A relationship gets tested.
 A mind gets tested.
 A car gets tested 
 A food is tested
 A person's patience gets tested

As we are all God's children, we must get tested, but as He will never forsake us, allowing us to endure as He would not, and could not endure, so will He ask us to test Him.

God says it well here:

Malachi 3:10
...I will pour out a blessing so great you won't have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!

All this time we were in a relationship with God, and we didn't know it, therefore Jesus (God is with us) came and showed us all that God was, through His living. And the relationship that started 2 thousand years before, came full circle. Not only did God love us, we loved Him back.

God says it well here:
John 13:34
"So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other."

The Lord had a place for us all. This is how He described it to be. A land of "milk and honey."

I tell you the Truth! Children as babies smell sweet and their breath smells of milk; so is this place my Father speaks of. A place where we will all be, in joys just like a baby is. We will rejoice, and be child-like in all our ways...Simple.

May the Lord multiply you in His unfailing Love, wisdom, and understanding.

I hope you enjoyed this series "In LOVE." 

God bless.
