THE ATMOSPHERE OF LOVE

Mar 30, 2023

This kingdom of God is governed and ruled by love (light); that is why you can not permit your life to stay in darkness (hate, unforgiveness, bitterness, etc) because the light is what drives the darkness away. When you begin to walk in this truth, the enemy will have nothing on you (John 14:30).

Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

Colossians 1:13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed [us] into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

Things may have been hard on you but now that you are in this kingdom, allow God’s love to dominate your heart (Romans 5:5).

1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love [his] brother abides in death.

Death is the realm of darkness: you can no longer permit hatred to stay in your heart because it’s an environment that attracts the work of the evil one.

About two to three months ago, the Lord spoke to me strongly that the judgment He is bringing upon darkness, sickness, and pain is not because He wants to show power but because of His love for you. If it is a loving judgment, then you and I must make up our minds to walk in love.

1 Corinthians 13:8 Love never fails. But whether [there are] prophecies, they will fail; whether [there are] tongues, they will cease; whether [there is] knowledge, it will vanish away.

When you abide in love, you set up yourself for victory in all areas of your life: you begin to reign where you have been experiencing defeat because of the atmosphere of love.

The kingdom of this world is controlled by power but God runs His kingdom by love and that’s why when you stay in love, you paralyze the enemy.

Read Matthew 22:37-38

Jesus said that the whole Bible can be compressed into two statements, that is to say, “love God and love your neighbour”. This kingdom is a kingdom of love; we must specialize and excel in love.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such, there is no law.

The fruit of the spirit is the manifestation of love: all those fruits find manifestation through love yet there is no law against it.

Romans 5:5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

One of the major reasons why the Holy Spirit dwells in us is because the Lord has deposited His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit has come to furnish our hearts with the love of God and when we become full of love, faith seizes to be an issue because it flows freely (1 Corinthians 13:13)

Galatians 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

What is the law of Christ? “You shall love your neighbour as you love yourself”. Where love abounds, the works of Satan can never be seen because love is superior to any other virtue of God.

God is not power, authority, or anointing but the very nature (component) of God is love and because we are born of God, love must become the final authority over our lives.

May the Holy Spirit flood our hearts, souls, will, and emotions with the love of God and help us to execute these dimensions of love in our marriages, relationships, etc.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
