Love one Another 


“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” Nelson Mandela

“20If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 21And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.” John, The Apostle of Jesus Christ (1 John 4:20-21 KJV)

Prayer for God’s LOVE ❤️ to fill my heart

image11Still praying for God’s love to fill my heart always, pray with me:

In my devotional time on the morning of 29th February 2016, having prayed for myself regarding the subject of love, I felt compelled to write this “Prayer for God’s Love to fill my heart”.

It is not being hard on oneself to pray such a prayer; on the contrary, it is a recognition that we often fall short of the God kind of Love required of us, as believers in Christ Jesus.

It is an honest prayer for transformation of heart; A desperate cry for a heart that not only says “I love” but one that is full of the genuine love of God within and demonstrates it. If I have the gift of prophecy and all the other gifts of the Spirit but I do not have the God kind of Love, one of the fruit of the Spirit, then I am only as “a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal” (1 Corinth 13:1) making a whole lot of unproductive noise!! The God kind of Love gives substance to my gifting and whatever I do for God.

Dear LORD,
Fill me with your kind of Love!
Love that is sacrificial, selfless and unconditional,
Love that nurtures as a mother does a child,
Love that neither determines man’s worth according to his race nor measures man according to what he has or does, nor where he is from or what he looks like and
Love that compels me to weep for the lost and pray for the sick so that they may be healed.

Father, I am desperate for your kind of Love!

Deliver me from the thrones of my soul where there may be hate or pride that I often do not see and cloth me with the majestic attire of your perfect Love for

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal” 2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. 3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:1-3).

Help me to remain seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus among the Kingdom of priests where the godly fruit of your Love grows in my heart daily, for your Word says

4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.8 Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).
In Jesus’ mighty Name I pray Amen.

The God kind of love:
“12 This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. 13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. (John 15:12-14 NLT)

“See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him.2 Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is. 3 And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as he is pure. (1 John 3:1-3 NLT)

Racially ONE in Christ

Poetic discourse & counsel:

Racism is not a skin pigmentation problem, but a sin problem from a heart of self augmentation, at the expense of another man’s worth and affirmation.
It is a cloak of sin over a man’s life that chokes the truth within, calling God a liar for creating all men equal and mocks Christ’s prayer “that they may be one, as we [are] (1)”

It is an inner struggle between two wrestlers within;
the spiritual man unto God who lives to obey God’s Word of Truth even the call to “love thy neighbour as thyself (2)” and the natural or carnal man whose counsellor is the dragon of pride that seeks self elevation knowing his time to be bound is fast approaching.

Magnificent Angel of true worship to God was overcome with self augmentation and started a rebellion in heavenly, but was defeated at war and cast out of God’s heavenly place to earth.
So was said aloud in heaven “Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath..(3)

The dragon, that old serpent’s slithering ways on earth uses its venom of racial pride and hate to deceive and divide to rule on earth. His poison, he spits and stirs in the hot pot of governmental laws and seals men’s hearts to the serpent’s politics and institutional lies.

Brethren, hear the Word of Truth and remember, we do not war against flesh or blood “but against principalities …powers ..the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. (4)” so use the spiritual weapons of warfare unto God, that are mighty to pull down binding strongholds.

The done deal prepared and “cooked” over two thousand years ago is by the Messiah’s death on the cross, so decree by faith that the Seed of the Woman has crushed the head of the serpent!

The only seal to allow is that of our adoption by the Holy Ghost to be God’s anointed “to preach…bind up the brokenhearted to proclaim liberty to the captives,…and the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn…(5)”

The time is short, for the King comes soon to judge, so implore “race hater” to bow to LOVE who sits on the Heavenly Throne and say to the “racially prejudiced”:
“surrender to the blood of the Lamb by which, with the Word of our testimony we overcome.”

Whether black, white, yellow, red or whatever shade you appear, Brethren, if a racist spirit deceives you, let the Spirit of Truth this day convince you of the God of racial love and justice when he declares
“no name or title of “Racist Christian” is found in the Lamb’s book of life and there is a place for such, called hell.”
And be ye convinced when in your heart, he speaks Jesus’ words that
“you love one another, just like I have loved you; …by this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.(6)”
