MORNINGTIME 3620by Benjamin Munsell on November 12, 2020
Hereby KNOW YE THE SPIRIT OF GOD: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh IS OF GOD: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. YE are of God, little children, and HAVE OVERCOME THEM: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that GOD SENT HIS only begotten SON into the world, THAT WE might LIVE THROUGH HIM. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that HE LOVED US, AND sent his Son to be the Propitiation for our sins. Hereby know we that WE DWELL IN HIM, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: BECAUSE AS HE IS, SO ARE WE in this world. And this Commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also. 1 John 4:2-4,9-10,13,17, 21. The spirit of anti-christ is so strong and so prevalent that the eyes of all the world are on him, and not Christ. But Christ Knows who His sheep are, and HE GOES AFTER THEM. And that's the point, CHRIST, AS AN ABSOLUTE ACT OF GOD, GOES AFTER HIS SHEEP. That's unheard of, IN THIS WORLD. BUT CHRIST does the "unthinkable", and reaches down into Sin, AND PULLS OUT ALL WHO ARE HIS. When a sinner sees Christ AND THIS KIND OF LOVE, he can do nothing BUT fall at the Feet of Christ in deep Anguish unto Repentance, unto Salvation. When this happens, Christ now has one for ALL of Eternity. This kind of Love goes from unnatural, in this world, to very Natural in Christ. THIS, is why True Christians, the REAL Followers of Christ, will Love the unlovable, because the Unnatural Love of Christ THROUGH THEM, goes out into a dead and dying world. If you are a Believer, you can't help but Love others WITH THE LOVE OF CHRIST, and that you, AND THEY, will, Be Blessed.
