    Lasenberry John Joyce,

    Are you referring to Chapter 1 where it talks about the participation in the Spiritual growth process, where it lists 7 things, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, brotherly kindness, and charity?

    Matthew 22:37 (Part 2)

    Here is the second part I promised:

    I just wanted to take the Verse a little deeper from a Greek perspective.



    If you notice the word "with." Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Well, it is the Greek word EN, which means in.



    All three prepositional phrases are "in." You will love the Lord your God (in) your whole heart, and (in) your whole soul and (in) your whole mind.



    Please notice the location?



    I am not going to love with it. I am going to be in it. It is going to be in me, in my inner being. That is how it is literally translated in the Greek.

    You see, God gives us the ability to love Him because in the natural, we do not have that capability. So Jesus says this is the first commandment.



    Can you imagine how many years have we gone by with people thinking that the first commandment is a commandment?

    No, the commandment is YOU WILL. There is no choice there! It is not an invitation like I hope you will, or could you, or should you.



    You will, because God's Spirit is the one who has the love. He is the one who loves. And when you have God's Spirit in you, you are in God's love.



    And we have to be sensitive to the fact that AGAPE love is not an action, something we have to go out and do. Agape love is a person. That person is Christ. And if we have Christ, we will love Him with all our heart, mind, and soul. And we will love our neighbor (fellow believer) as ourself. It's not a command for us to go out and do. It is something we will do because His Spirit in us gives us the ability to do so!

    Blessings in Christ Jesus!

    No worries brother Spencer,

    It probably came from Matthew 22:37. The term "Thou shalt love" is not in command form. That is a Future Active Indicative in the Greek text. It is not a command. It is a factual statement. You will love!

    Believers are supposed to love one another. But, neither in the Old Testament, nor in the New Testament, is it in command form.



    As a matter of fact, the command in the Old Testament is YOU WILL love the Lord your God, and YOU WILL love your neighbor as yourself. It is a factual statement!



    It all centers around where the commands came from, Deuteronomy Chapter 6 that has the SHEMA, the prayer that is prayed every morning and evening by Orthodox Jews.



    In that prayer, they recite the fact that God says that I will put my Spirit in you, and I will put my laws on your heart, and YOU WILL love the Lord your God.

    We are told in Galatians 5:22 that love, AGAPE, is a fruit of God's Spirit.



    In 1 John Chapter 4, it tells us that God is love. Now if I focus on the fact that God is love, and I've been commanded to love, and God is love, then what am I to do? Give you God, because He is love. Love is a person. Love is the nature of God!



    In my human abilities, or in my human effort, I cannot produce God's nature of love. I can't produce that!



    And as I said, Galatians 5:22 tells us it is a fruit. It is produced by God's Spirit, just like faith, and all the other ingredients that make up the fruit of the Spirit.



    Some continue to take scriptures out of context and put pressure on themselves to produce these things, when the bible says no.

    The bible says point-blank that if you're not loving your brother, then you don't know God! If you do not have AGAPE love in you, you are not saved. That is what the bible says.

    I am running out of space but want to share a little more on Matthew 22:37 from a Greek perspective. It is some pretty powerful stuff!

    I'll send it as Matthew 22:37 (Part 2)

    Hi Sacha,

    You're not butting in, I don't think any private conversations on this site.

    The context in this comment was those who "HATE THE BRETHEREN' the love Christ is not in them.

    "If Christ dwell in us and we in him, his spirit CAUSE us to love one another.

    quoting me now:

    "I believe the emphasis here in John is not just the love for the brethren is evidence of

    Christ in you,

    But also the hatred for the brethren is evidence Christ is not in you."

    Here's THE VERSES.

    1 John 3. My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

    And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.

    For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

    Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.

    "We may fool one anther but not God." God knows the Heart!!

    1 John 2:8-11. Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.

    He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

    But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

    1 John 4:20-21. If 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?

    And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

    1 John 2:5. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected:

    ( hereby know we that we are in him.)

    We are to display Gods love on all men, But Agape/Love which is one of 3 loves in scripture, It's what is used here towards the brethern WHERE BY WE KNOW! Christ is in us.

    God bless

    Believing isn't enough, because the Bible clearly says that even demons believe James 2:14-26. Even satan believes and you probably know that he's not going back to heaven. Jesus said most people will go to hell and most people on earth believe in God. So, does the math add up? Most will go to hell, despite believing. And since the Bible already says believing isn't enough, it makes a strong case that believing isn't enough. In fact, it's likely that satan is the one trying to convince Christians that they don't need to be obedient or do anything good, because they were told they didn't have to and that good works was bad. Clever trick.

    What I think is a common source of common confusion is cherry picking a verse and ignoring the context of the chapter. For instance some cite Hebrews 10:10-20 as the reason they are 'saved' permanently, regardless of their actions. So, some believe they can enjoy sin, having affairs, stealing, committing murder, with no consequence apparently. Does that sound like it comes from God? But if someone were to simply read further in the same chapter, they would see the greater context and read this...

    26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

    27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

    29 How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?

    30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

    So, it assumes that a Christian is genuine and being obedient, not willfully sinning! What a massive distinction with eternal consequences!

    John 4:21-23. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

    Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

    But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

    There's not a place or day we do this.

    Colossians 2:16-17 (KJV) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

    The sabbaths was given to Israel.

    Jesus gave us rest!

    We rest in him.

    If you thriving to "achieve" something by your efforts Isn't that considered works?

    Brother Deshawn, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, SAITH GOD, I WILL...

    Is GOD a person? Do you know anything that can speak other than a person? Saith God, I will pour out MY SPIRIT (John 4:24 God is SPIRIT); is not he saying that he will pour out HIMSELF?

    1 Corinthians 2:16 KNOW YE NOT that ye are the temple of God, and that the SPIRIT OF GOD (God is Spirit) dwells in you....

    Philippians 2:5 Let this mind (God's mind) be in you, which also was in Christ Jesus:

    Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the FORM OF GOD, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

    Psalms 82:6 I (GOD SAITH) have said, ye are gods; and all of you are CHILDREN of the MOST HIGH.

    John 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I SAID ye age gods?

    John 10:35 If HE called them gods, unto whom the word of God came (GOD POURED OUT HIMSELF ON YOU), and the scripture cannot be broken.
  • Jesse - in Reply on James 2
    S Spencer,

    I don't recall exactly what it was but it says "A new commandment I give unto you, and I'll share with you a technical Greek point. He says "A new commandment I give to you, that ye love one another;



    In the Greek text, there is what is called a "HINA clause." In the Greek, where you see the letters ina, pronounced hee-na, that is what is called a purpose clause. He is not saying that is the command. He's saying "I'm giving you a new command (in order) that you love one another!"



    The command hasn't been given yet. The new command will be in Chapter 4 Verse 1. This is why diagramming the sentences from an original language perspective gives you a heads-up on the context of sections. There is no command until Chapter 4 Verse 1. "Love" is not a new command.



    But I'm giving you this new command in order that, purpose clause, that you love one another according as I have loved you, in order that you also love one another.



    In comparison, how did He love them? Well, He showed them the extreme love by washing their feet. He is showing them the love of God by voluntarily laying down His life for them. That is the message and impression that He is leaving for them.

    Hopefully this is what you were looking for? Or maybe it had to do with the command to love the Lord thy God, and to love your neighbor as yourself which in the Greek text is really not a command for us to do?
  • Jesse - in Reply on James 2
    S Spencer,

    I agree. A person cannot have the Spirit of Christ living inside them and at the same time have hatred in their heart for a fellow believer.

    If a man says, I love God, and he hates his brother, his Christian brother, he is a liar: for he that loves not his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?

    And this commandment have we from Him, That he who loves God, and notice the factual statement: he that loves God, loves his brother also.

    It doesn't say should. It says loves his brother also. That's a factual statement. And again, the love is AGAPE. Man cannot produce this type of love. Only God's Spirit can produce AGAPE love. And that is why a person who has God's Spirit WILL LOVE another believer.

  • S Spencer command to love the brethren - in Reply on James 2
    Jesse.

    I believe the emphasis here in John is not just the love for the brethren is evidence of

    Christ in you,

    But also the hatred for the brethren is evidence Christ is not in you.

    1 John 2:3-11. ( AND HEREBY WE DO KNOW )that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

    He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

    But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

    He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

    Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.

    Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.

    ""He that saith he is in the light, and HATETH his brother, is in darkness even until now.

    He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

    But he that HATETH his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.""

    1 John 4:20-21. If 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?

    ( And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.)

    THIS IS LOVE WE CAN'T COMMAND THE FLESH TO DO, THIS HIGH ORDER OF LOVE AND COMMANDMENT SEEMS TO BE MORE LIKE RECOGNITION AND VIRTUE OF THE SPIRIT.

    1 John 4:20-21. If 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?

    And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

    IF we're not in the light we may hear

    Hi Jesse, You shared with me once before how the word commandment here in

    John 13:34. A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

    has a different meaning as commandment in other scriptures.

    It is the way I learned and was sharing it, But you articulated it very well and I copied and pasted it so I don't forget it. Problem is I forgot where I pasted it.

    I want to make sure to receive this message:

    Can you tell me more about this statement below, and where in scripture is it located?

    "We note, also, the SPIRIT of GOD left Jesus, the Man, in the garden of Gethsemane, otherwise Jesus could never have died on the cross."

    I have a theory that Jesus' 42 months of power ran out just before his crucifixion. Jesus may have died more man than we know, similar to antichrist losing his power at the 7th trumpet to Christ.

    Does anyone know the time of day Jesus was baptized, around 3 pm? If, in fact Jesus was baptized at 3 pm, thus beginning his ministry, his time would have expired at 3 pm, 42 months later. So, Jesus on the cross was stripped of his direct power to God. I believe this is one of the reasons why Jesus called out to God for strength before passing, so he wasn't alone.

    Thanks.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Luke 14
    Dgjot,

    I agree with what you are saying.

    Although witnessing Christ to others is a good thing, no one should put a heavy burden on us to do so. There are some who even say that Jesus would have come back by now if we believers were out there "doing our jobs."

    It should never be about putting a guilt trip on a believer to get out and do their job so that everyone will be reached.

    Besides, John 1:9 tells us that the whole world has already been reached.

    The word, the Logos, enlightens every person coming into the world. Every single human being born into this earthly life will be enlightened by God to the truth.



    There will not be one person that will stand before God that will ever say "Hey I didn't know anything about it." Here is why. I'll give you three scriptures.



    Psalm 19:1-4 says that creation, the language of creation goes throughout the world. There is no language that does not understand the language of creation. And creation speaks of the Creator.



    So much so that in Romans 1:19-20, the apostle Paul even says that what is known of God is clearly manifest as God reveals the truth of the invisible God to every person.

    Romans 10:18 is a verse people will use to motivate Christians to help support missionary work around the world. Unfortunately some stop at Verse 17 when it says faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

    "So we have got to get the word of God out there and reach those people."

    Except in Verse 18 Paul says, but I say have they not heard? Yes they have. Their sound went out into all the earth and their words unto the ends of the world.

    So it's not up to us to reach everyone. In the book of Revelation, we are told of God's plan to reach every single person.

    There will be the two witnesses, an angel will be flying around in mid-heaven for 3-1/2 years warning everyone.

    And there will also be 144 Jews who will be evangelizing and reaching the list. So God has it pretty much covered!
  • Part 2 Crown of Rejoicing
    2) THE CROWN OF REJOICING:

    To those who faithfully are witnesses to the saving grace of God and lead souls to Jesus. This crown has also been named the SOUL WINNERS crown. Itindicates here that God will be giving a crown to those who have witnessed toothers and leading people to Christ.Telling others about the grace of God, telling others about Jesus, is the greatest thing that you can do for someone while here on this earth. When you help someone to be led to the Lord, you have just been used as a vessel of God. It says in the Bible,"Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holy and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:"1 Thessalonians 2:10 God will judge you by your willingness and desire to be used by Him to witness to others, not necessarily on how many actually get saved, because we are to water and He gives the increase.Christians can be used by God to try to lead others to the Lord. God can fit opportunities for you in your life to witness and work for Him if you allow Him to. Some could be your unsaved friends, family members or co-workers, etc. The Bible says it good here,"For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of ourLord Jesus Christat his coming?"1 Thessalonians 2:19
  • Part 1 Crowns Given at the Bema Seat of Christ
    1). THE INCORRUPTIBLE CROWN

    This is also called the imperishable crown. This crown is given to believers who faithfully run the race, who crucify every selfish desire in the flesh and point men to Jesus. God calls some people to do things that will require some sacrificein the way they will live and conduct their lives. Some people may be called to be a missionary in a far off and poor country. They will literally be working for almost nothing in earthly terms. They will have to sacrifice the money, possessions and life-style they could have had, if they stayed home in their own country. The Bible says,"Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible."1 Corinthians 9:24-25 This verse also implies that these people will also receive this crown for the sacrifices they were willing to make for God to successfully complete the call and mission God had called them to do.Basically run whatever race that God has set out for you and be the best you can be for God. Be willing to make whatever sacrifices there may be to successfully complete the mission that God has set out for you.

    33 And he shall set the sheep on his RIGHT HAND, but the goats on the left.

    34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

    35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

    36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

    37 Then shall THE RIGHTEOUS answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

    38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

    39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

    40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto ME.

    41 Then shall he say also unto them on THE LEFT HAND (goats)

    Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

    42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me NO meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me NO drink:

    43 I was a stranger, and ye took me NOT in: naked, and ye clothed me NOT: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me NOT.

    44 Then shall they (the goats) also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and DID NOT minister unto thee???

    45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it NOT to one of the least of these, ye did it NOT to me.

    46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

    Comment by Mishael: this is not a call to get all wrapped up into a "Works Only" mentality.

    This a means to worship Jesus, and love him. He asks us to do this.

  • Jesse - in Reply on James 2
    S Spencer,

    Thank you. I also like what Earl had to say about faith where he says that Christ gives us His faith.

    The scripture teaches us that faith is a fruit of God's Spirit. Without His Spirit in us, we would only have human faith.

    We often hear and read in our English bibles the phrase "faith in Christ" but in the Greek text, it says faith of Christ. It's His faith that He gives us through His Spirit.

    It reminds me of the story when Jesus and His disciples were in a ship and it was filling with water and about to sink. Jesus was asleep and His disciples were "freaking out." And I'm thinking to myself, what, is the ship going to sink with Jesus on board?

    But when the disciples woke Him up and told Him they were about to sink, Jesus said "Oh ye of little faith."

    But what is interesting is that in the Greek text it doesn't say oh ye of little faith. It says oh ye of no faith.

    Why? Because the Holy Spirit had not yet come. They had no faith, at least not the faith the Bible speaks of!

    Hi Perry, are you sure about that? Do you believe that's God's standard- if so, where is your Bible references to back that up- or is that just your own arbitrary standard?

    Jesus said no one is good Mark 10:18, so should I believe your standards over Jesus's?

    Romans 3:12 is another worth considering.

    One of the tactics from satan is to get people to assume they're already good and moral as they are and don't need to make any effort to obey God or Jesus, in fact, many claim they don't need Jesus and certainly don't need to be 'saved'. That is a classic fallacy, which the Bible predicted in advance and already has a clear answer for. It's all in the scripture ready to be read. I believe what God says over what men say.

  • Using The Authority of Jesus Christ - in Reply on 1 John 3
    Lucifer became Satan after he was evicted from heaven for coveting Gods throne. He had been the covering Cherub; in charge of praise and worship. But then he wanted that praise for himself.

    Isaiah 14

    12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

    13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I WILL ascend into heaven, I WILL exalt my throne above the stars of God: I WILL sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

    14 I WILL ascend above the heights of the clouds; I WILL be like the most High.

    15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

    16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

    17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

    Comment: When we praise God, Satan is at war with us too. The war in Revelation gives us a glimpse of this war. Jesus, the Lamb of God; defeated Satan. Jesus imparted his authority to believers, to enforce Satan's defeat; in our born again state.

    If you don't know of your authority in Christ, you are easily defeated in life. Look upon your very own Armor In Ephesians 6. That is ours! Jesus defeated Satan on the CROSS.

    Jesus took back the authority, on the CROSS, that First Adam turned over to Satan when he ate of the fruit with Eve.

    Jesus taught his Disciples of that authority. He demonstrated it, daily. When Jesus came upon someone possessed with demons: they cried out for mercy, because they have no Authority.

    We can grovel and whine, when harassed by the demonic; or we can fight back In The NAME of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus said: go ye, feed my sheep, carry my lambs, Heal the sick, raise the dead, proclaim the acceptable year.

    Selah. Are you in, or out?

    Luke 14:

    21So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.

    22And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.

    23And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

    24For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.

    Some people read this and say it's our job to witness to everyone/anyone. And this is 2021.

    This isn't like it was the days before the scriptures were compiled into a book that everyone could read. (the 1611 KJV)

    The invention of printing press made it so many copies could be printed and everyone could have one. Then came the telegraph, the telephone, the radio, television, the personal computer and satellites. The Gospel has been preached to every nation in every language. Everyone has heard about the Gospel of Jesus at SOME time in their life. So why are we still required to "witnesss"/spread the Gospel????
