Love is the Chief Matter

6/28/12 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For The Lord’s Little Flock and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

Thus says The Lord: Because My servants are slow to discern and yet resist My will, seeking rather their own way, choosing always to fulfill their own wants and desires, I shall speak once again.

Beloved ones, how is it that each of you yet resist the other, and this on account of your own selfishness? The hour is late, the sun is setting below the horizon, and still I see no union. I see no sincere compassion; only pretense is brought forth, a vain attempt to hide from others that which remains lacking within yourselves.
Beloved ones, stop lying to yourselves! When you come before Me, bring no pretense, nor make empty supplications while your hearts remain far removed. For I am He who sees, your Redeemer who knows. Rather make honesty your companion, and integrity your close friend, as it is written.[1] Beloved, call upon Me in sincerity and in truth, with a heart willing to do whatsoever I ask of you, eager to go wheresoever I send you. For again, I tell you, whatsoever you do for another you have done for Me. And when you forsake even the least of these, My beloved, you have forsaken Me.[2]

Therefore, love is the chief matter; love is your reason for being, even as I am. Or have you so quickly forgotten this wisdom given to My servant, Sha’ul (also known as Paul)?... “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, yet am void of love, I have become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy and many mysteries have been uncovered before my eyes, having received great knowledge, and though I receive the fullness of trust by which even mountains are removed, yet am void of love, I am nothing. And though I give away my goods to feed the poor, even everything I own, and though I willingly give up my body to the fiery furnace, yet am void of love, I have accomplished nothing.
For love is long-suffering and tender-hearted. Love does not envy. Love does not parade itself, is not puffed up, but remains humble. Love does not behave rudely, does not seek its own way, is not easily provoked, but forgives and keeps no record of past wrongs. Love does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices always in the truth. Love bears up and holds fast to that which is good; always hopes, always trusts, and is willing to endure all things. Love never fails.
Yet prophecies will cease and tongues will grow silent; the knowledge of men will vanish away. For now we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when The Perfect comes then that which is in part will be no longer. For when I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child and I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know, even as I am known.”

For three things abide, and are most needful:
Trust, hope and love...

Yet the greatest of these is love[3]...

Says The Lord YahuShua.
