LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE

 

Love, Love, Love, Love

The Gospel in three words is love

Love your neighbors, as your brother

Love, Love, Love.

 

It is six forty five, Thursday 19 February 1998

I was lying in bed. This song kept going through my mind. Over and over it went. Love, Love, Love, Love, ----Love, Love, Love, Love, -----Love, Love, Love, Love,   

Yes Lord I hear the Message! The Hidden Manna is Love! It is the Word, you sent down from heaven, to fix my broken heart. I finally hear the message. Everything I have done for You, in the past, and everything I will do for You, in the future will avail me and You, nothing if I don't do it because I love You. I am finally seeing the truth. It doesn’t matter, how much money I have. It is not mine. It was given to me, so that I could fulfill these words. Love, Love, Love, Love. Yes, God it is true! When I take the time to Love You, and Love my neighbor, I love my self, the way You want me to love. I am allowing the gates of heaven, to open and the Hidden Manna, to flow freely into my heart. Oh! The Love and Joy I feel, and see, when I am in obedience, and reach out to a sister, or brother, in need. Human words are not enough, to explain it.

Thank You God! Thank You! Thank You! Now You are allowing me, to see the fruit of the seeds of the Love, I have sown in the past. The seeds You, have taught me to sow, are to be given freely. You gave them to me, to give away. Yes, there was a cost. I don't mean money. The cost was accepting the free gift, of Your Son Jesus, into my heart. All I had to say is, Help me God. I said am sorry, for my sins. I reached out my arms to You, with repentance in my heart, and You, forgave me.

I asked God for Love. His Son Jesus is Love. God gave me, His Son. I asked God, to allow me to Smile. I was a broken woman. I had been hurt so badly by a husband, children at school teasing me, and other people who hurt me. I felt I was a nobody! I was a grade nine drop out! All my friends were teachers and nurses. I felt I was a nobody! You allowed Your Son, with the arms of the Holy Spirit, to come down and Fill me! Fill me! Fill me! Fill me!

 I can feel it, as if it was yesterday. You gave me back my smile. You allowed me to see, my self through Your eyes and I could like my self. You allowed me, to learn to love my self. I was in bad shape, and You came and changed me.

You used the arms, and encouraging words, of people. They loved me, and held me! Your love flowed through their eyes, into my cold, cold, heart. They hugged me, and Your love, flowed into me, through their touch. They prayed for me, and their prayers went up to You, in Heaven, as a sweet, sweet, smelling aroma. God, You used people! Then on Saturday, while my friend Vivian, was singing a solo, You used the Holy Spirit, Your Comforter, to come and fill me, with the Power of Love. I will never be able to explain, what happened. Love came down from heaven, and filled my whole body. Love! Love! Love! Love! Love! Love! Love! Love! Love! God, I felt It! I tasted It! I smelt It! The veil was removed from my mind, heart, and eyes. I could look out, and forgive the people, who had said mean things, to me in the past. Some of them were sitting just in front of me. Lord, I was created in Your image. You did create me, for that special moment. God, I received the love, of Your Only Begotten Son, into my life that day. I have tried, to serve You, all the days of my life. My life does not even belong to me. It is Yours. Thank You God!

I was given the gift, of the Holy Spirit that day. I became a new woman. The old depressed, lonely, hurting, woman was put away, and I began to say, that I could do anything God wanted me to do. New thoughts were coming into my mind. I accepted the gift, of Gods Son, that day. I am sorry to say, it took another 20 years, for me to be able to read, the Word of God, with understanding. I still used as an excuse, that I wasn't educated enough, to understand it.

I thank God, that He changed all that, in the spring of 1993. A woman by the name of Kay Arthur came into my life. She taught me in a Bible study, two important Scriptures. 

John 14:25 "These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you. 26 "But the Helper the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. 27 "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

John 16: 12 "I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 "But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14 "He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. 15 "All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you. 

She taught us how to pray and ask God, to allow the Holy Spirit, His Comfort, who lives inside of us, to lead us into all truth, and to bring back to our memory, all that we have read. 

She even taught us, how to mark our Bibles, so that we could find, what we wanted. At last, I could feed, on the Hidden Manna, the Word of God, and be filled. I had been starving, for this food, for over forty years. Without this food, I could never be happy, or satisfied. Oh, the freedom, the power, and the strength we have, when we decide, to turn away from sin, and follow Jesus.

Yes, it is work! We have to make a conscious decision, to turn away from sin, each day. The Holy Spirit, God, and Jesus that live within us will set us free. We have to make the choice, to ask for Them, to help us.

It says in the Bible, that Jesus is praying, intercessory prayers, on our behalf. When we pray, our prayers are sent up to heaven to the twenty-four elders, sitting around the throne. They in turn, purify them with fire, and send them up to God, as a sweet, sweet aroma. Just think, how would the prayers, you prayed today, need to be purified? How much of our prayers actually reached God? Just picture, if your prayer was sent to a top executive, in a big government office, you would write down your prayer. You would go to the post office and mail it. A sorter will sort it. It goes to one of twenty-four secretaries. She opens it and reads it. She takes out a heavy black marker and blacks out everything that is not worthy to go to her boss. She then puts it in a big golden bow filled with fire. Everything in black will be burnt. What part of your prayers will the executive read?

Our Father in heaven wants us to come to him with all our needs. He does listen to us even when we say the word Help. He tells us in the Bible that if we pray for food He will not give us a snake or a stone. He already knows what we need. He wants us to come to Him with Thanksgiving and Praise. I love the song the four living creatures and twenty-four elders sing to God in Rev.5

You are worthy to take the Scroll and to open its seals, because

You were slain and with Your blood, You purchased men for God from every tribe, language, people, and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom, and priest to serve You God and they will reign on the earth.

Then all the angels, and the twenty-four elders, sang with a loud voice

Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise.

Then I heard every creature in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and on the sea, and all that is in them singing.

To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, Praise and honor and glory and power forever and ever.

Did you know this is talking about us? Yes if we Repent, Overcome, turn away from sin and have Jesus in our heart we will sit with Jesus on His throne. 

 Rev.3: 21 says to him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with Me, on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches.

Have you asked, Jesus into your heart? Have you been allowing God to do a good work in you? 

Are you trying to be an Overcomer? I pray you are. Be set free! Ask God today, to help you. His Son is just out side your door, asking to come, and live, in your heart. Say yes today!

Tomorrow might never come.                                               

Love Ethel Hiday

Dedicated to my special Thursday morning People Pocket, and our leader Sherry.

I wrote this after much prayer and Bible study. I pray God will bless you as you pray and read your Bible.
