I may seem to be in love with a woman because she is a woman of beautiful image and stature. I may be married to a woman because the law of man dictates we are married in writing based on the written law of man. However, if I love a woman and she loves me back, I will only consider myself united to her if God united us by His grace, not by what the law of marriage requires. But even if we are united by God, I do not consider her to be my wife nor must she consider me also as her husband. Because true children of God are not given in marriage (Luke 20:35) and no matter the language of man speaks, we both have one true husband who is our Creator (Isaiah 54:5).
I do not love a woman though by what I see on her body but what I see in her soul. For if God is inside her then it is Him whom I love and not truly her, neither her flesh. For if it is not God who is inside her, yet I love her still, then I love (and lust for) the flesh and the one whom the flesh belongs to: the flesh belongs to this world, and this world belongs to the prince of evil. Therefore I love evil if I love the flesh, and not God who resides in her, if ever God is in her. But if God is not present in her, no matter how beautiful she is from the outside, then I can not truly love her ever.
Since God is love (1 John 4:16), because God loved us first (1 John 4:19), how can we say we love each other if God is not in us? If we say we love each other, yet God is not in both of us, then it is not true love that we feel. And that kind of feeling is not going to last, and our relationships will only lead to dissatisfaction, disputes, distrust, disagreements, disunity. Because it is only the love that is God that will truly bind us together forever: our union that is made by God and of God; the love that is in us when God is present in both of us. If God is not in us then it is not love that we feel, and we will never know what love truly is. But if God is in us, we will always understand each other no matter what the situation dictates.
I live and I am alive in the flesh because while I live, there are more of my brethren who are still in this world – but who are not of this world – who will also live. I don’t give life however, only Jesus, but through me, and through the guidance of the Holy Spirit who help me find them and them to find me, they who are lost may be able to see the Light and through my life they may also have life in Jesus.
If I die now which is not according to God’s plan, then many too will die with me and not able to find Life like the Life I found in Jesus. But if i die today according to God’s desire then the life given to me and I have lived already completes God’s overall design of my existence in this world: the world where I and my brethren I seek do not belong to.
I abide in Jesus and Jesus abides in me therefore my life was brought upon me by Him and the life I share with my brethren also belongs to Him. But it must be understood: we do not belong here but we all belong to the next, and we must find each other and be all brought to Light so that Jesus comes again, and this one comes to end, then comes the next.
If I am one with Jesus as Jesus is one with the Father, therefore I too am one with Him. If God is in me and I am one with Him, then God controls everything that is in me and beyond me: my thoughts and emotions, my words and actions, my fate and destiny. If nothing is impossible with God and He controls me, then there is nothing I can not do if and only if God will allow. Even satan therefore can only do things to me if and only if God will allow; there is nothing satan can do to me without God’s permission. In other words, if God controls satan and me as well, then these demons and their prince I could possibly control as well if and only if God will allow because God is in me.
What is then the use of desiring anything on my own when everything the flesh desires leads to damnation, instead of just letting God – who is in me and whom I am one with – desire for myself since God knows what is best for me and would never want anything to harm me (unless God will allow harm to try me)? Isn’t my life this so simple, when everything I just need to do is depend upon my Creator and not worry about anything when He knows already everything that is best for me? Why would I settle for anything of this world when everything I need and would ever want have already been prepared by God in the world to come? Even so, God my Father, please bless me still whilst in this life. Amen.
