The Destruction of the U.S. From Within - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2022/02/13/the-destruction-of-the-u-s-from-within-by-daymond-duck/
In late Jan. 2022, the Pres. of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele, read that a Rite Aid Store in New York City will soon close because of shoplifting.
Bukele responded with a tweet, “Is there a deliberate plan to destroy the United States from within?”
The answer to Pres. Bukele’s question is, “Yes, there is a deliberate plan to destroy the U.S. from within.”
This writer would ask Pres. Bukele, “Do you really know the Pres. of the U.S.?”
Much more could be said, but the destruction of the U.S. from within is ongoing, and it is just a matter of time until the U.S. is brought under a one-world government.
Here are some recent prophecy-related events.
One, concerning the coming world government and world religion: on Jan. 27, 2022, Roman Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano sent a letter to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith (CDF).
In my words, here are some of the things Vigano letter said:
(Writer’s Comment: These Catholic agencies probably disagree with Vigano’s comments, but this writer believes he is probably right on these issues.)
Here is a link to the article:
Two, concerning a one-world religion: on Feb. 4, 2022, Pope Francis opened a diplomatic mission in Abu Dhabi (location of the first Abrahamic Family House) to advance his effort to bring all religions together and merge them into one body.
Three, concerning deceit, election fraud, violence, etc.: on Feb. 4, 2022, prophecy expert and former White House Correspondent William Koenig posted the opinion that liberals are getting very concerned about losing the U.S. midterm elections; the evidence of election fraud is piling up; lawsuits are coming; an army of Democrat lawyers will try to delay action in the courts; politicians and the media will twist the truth; and things will probably get very nasty before the next vote.
Four, at the Republican National Committee meeting this week, delegates made it clear that they will support former Pres. Trump as their candidate if he decides to run.
If Trump runs, the globalist effort to keep him from strengthening the U.S. and keeping America out of the one-world government will know no limits.
(Note: While playing a round of golf on Jan. 25, 2022, former Pres. Trump said he will be the 47th president of the U.S., meaning he intends to replace Biden.)
Five, concerning lawlessness and the immigration of illegal aliens, sex traffickers, drug traffickers, terrorists, etc. into the U.S.: on Feb. 4, 2022, it was reported that the executive director of The Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley (CCRGV), Sister Norma Pimentel, has admitted that the Biden administration is using taxpayer money to reimburse the group for illegally bringing these people into the U.S.
Have you got that? A Catholic group is accepting money from the “good Catholic” in the White House, a friend of the globalist Pope, to break the law by helping sex traffickers, drug traffickers, terrorists, etc., get into the U.S.?
Six, concerning wickedness: on Feb. 2, 2022, it was reported that a co-chair of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) education committee, Adam Hott, also serves on a Chinese Communist influence committee (The United States Heartland Chinese Association; USHCA).
Seven, concerning the coming economic collapse during the Tribulation Period: on Feb. 2, 2022, Meta (formerly Facebook) stock lost about $200 billion, the largest one-day decline in one company in stock market history.
Company officials blamed TikTok, but others blamed Meta for censoring and keeping data on users.
Eight, concerning an increase in the frequency and intensity of natural disasters at the end of the age: on Feb. 3, 2022, a 6.8 earthquake struck Peru. There were no initial reports of injury or damage.
Nine, concerning a covenant of peace with many in the Middle East: on Jan. 30, 2022, an editorial in the Arab Times called for Kuwait to sign a normalization agreement with Israel and urged all of the Gulf States to do likewise.
The Kuwaiti editor said, “Peace with this most advanced country (Israel) is the right thing to do.”
He added, “Let the foolish (Palestinians) fend for themselves.”
Ten, also concerning a covenant of peace with many in the Middle East: on Feb. 3, 2022, Israel and Bahrain signed a joint security agreement.
The Israeli and Bahraini militaries will share military intelligence and work together on other issues.
There is speculation that the Abraham Accords will lead to other agreements with Israel’s new allies in the Gulf region.
Eleven, concerning the destruction of Damascus, Syria (Isa. 17) in one night, and the Battle of Gog and Magog (Russia, Iran and others attacking Israel on the Golan Heights; Ezek. 38-39): on Feb. 2, 2022, it was reported that Damascus (Syria) has complained to Russia about Israeli attacks on Syria, and Israel has made it clear that the attacks will continue as long as Syria allows Iran to have troops, weapons and bases in Syria for an attack on Israel.
Twelve, on Feb. 7, 2022, Archbishop Vigano released another important message.
Here is my summation of what he said:
Here is a link to Vigano’s message:
(More: On Feb.7, 2022, it was reported that American truckers are planning a “Convoy to D.C. 2022.” Those that want to keep Jesus in U.S. society need to stand up for their rights.)
(More: At the time of this writing, GoFundMe was blocking gifts to help the Truckers, so donors are using the Christian site called GiveSendGo. GoFundMe said donors have two weeks to submit a request for a refund, and some U.S. officials are threatening to investigate the company for telling donors the money will go to the truckers and then withholding it. Some say it is fraud.)
FYI: It is this writer’s opinion that globalists want to stop all preaching of the gospel and all mention of Bible morality; disarm and force everyone on earth to submit to global government and its morality; control the life, income, speech, etc., of everyone on earth: silence all opposition, and drastically decrease the population of the earth. The globalists will succeed because not enough people are standing up.
Finally, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
World War 3 This Week? Now We Are Being Told That Russia Could Invade Ukraine “On Wednesday” - by Michael Snyder - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/world-war-3-this-week-now-we-are-being-told-that-russia-could-invade-ukraine-on-wednesday/
Are you ready for war? After four years of peace with Russia under President Trump, it has taken Joe Biden and his all-star team of warmongers just over a year to get us to the brink of World War 3. Americans have grown accustomed to wars that only have consequences on the other side of the world, but a war with Russia would be completely different. Russia is not Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya. The Russians can fight back, and they would not be afraid to fight dirty. If the American people truly understood what was at stake, they would be flooding the streets in protest right now. One of the things that history has taught us is that you don’t mess with the Russians, and every empire that has tried has ended up paying a very great price. Unfortunately, the Biden administration seems absolutely determined to drag us into a conflict that won’t have any winners.
It would be so easy to avoid war, but Biden and his minions refuse to compromise. Instead, they just keep provoking the Russians, and they keep insisting that a Russian invasion of Ukraine is imminent.
In fact, it is being reported that the U.S. has “credible information” that the Russians could launch an invasion of Ukraine as soon as Wednesday…
Russia could launch an attack on Ukraine as early as next Wednesday, February 16 according to respected German publication, Der Spiegel.
American intelligence services briefed NATO allies of a possible impending Russian invasion against its western neighbor in a series of secret briefings.
The Secret Service, CIA and the Pentagon are said to have received credible information that was passed along to the federal government, reports the German newspaper.
While it is certainly true that both sides continue to move toward the brink of war, I do not believe that the Russians will invade Ukraine this week.
In fact, based on the information that I am getting I do not believe that it will happen during the month of February at all.
But Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan seems to be convinced otherwise. In fact, he continues to insist that an invasion is likely to take place “very soon”…
President Joe Biden’s top national security aide warned again Sunday that the Russian military has the capacity to invade Ukraine “this week” under the pretext of a “false flag” operation portraying Ukrainians as the aggressors.
“The way they have built up their forces, the way they have maneuvered things in place, makes it a distinct possibility there will be major military action very soon,” National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Sullivan also told CNN what he thinks a Russian invasion of Ukraine would look like…
“If there is a military invasion of Ukraine by Russia, it’s likely to begin with a significant barrage of missiles and bomb attacks,” Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union” program.
“It would then be followed by an onslaught of a ground force moving across the Ukrainian frontier,” he said, adding that there would be a substantial number of civilians caught in the crossfire.
He is envisioning a conventional ground invasion, but if the Russians actually pulled the trigger I think that they would conduct a more surgical operation designed to take control of Kiev as rapidly as possible.
But of course I could be wrong about that.
In any event, I believe that it is so important for everyone to become very familiar with Jake Sullivan. Since Joe Biden is not exactly all there mentally at this point, Sullivan has more influence than a national security adviser would normally have, and that is not a good thing.
Sullivan is a “triple threat”. He is a warmonger, he is horribly incompetent, and he is deeply corrupt.
And that is a very dangerous combination.
His partner in incompetence, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, is warning the Russians that there will be a “resolute, massive, and united transatlantic response” if the Russians decide to move in…
With the U.S. and other countries withdrawing embassy staff from Kyiv amid fears a war could erupt at any time, Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned his Russian counterpart Saturday that an invasion of Ukraine “would result in a resolute, massive, and united transatlantic response.”
Blinken appears to be referring to sanctions, but at this stage the Russians are telling us that they don’t really care about more sanctions…
Vladimir Putin ‘doesn’t give a s**t’ about the risk of Western sanctions if his country were to invade Ukraine, Russia’s ambassador to Sweden said as US staff began withdrawing from eastern Ukraine amid warnings of an ‘imminent’ invasion.
In an outspoken interview yesterday, Viktor Tatarintsev told the country’s Aftonbladet newspaper that ‘the more the West pushes Russia, the stronger the Russian response will be’.
What the Russians really want is for Ukraine not to join NATO.
And considering the fact that having Ukraine in NATO is not in the best interests of U.S. national security, we shouldn’t want Ukraine in NATO either.
As Tulsi Gabbard just told Tucker Carlson, Russia would agree not to invade Ukraine if the U.S. would assure Russia that Ukraine is not going to be given NATO membership…
The Russians don’t want NATO forces and NATO missiles close to their borders.
Just like we wouldn’t want Russians forces and Russian missiles in Mexico and Canada.
But the Biden administration has made it quite clear that there will be no compromises.
Of course, the Russians shouldn’t invade Ukraine over this, but after being lied to so many times by U.S. officials, I can understand that they would be quite alarmed to have western missiles just minutes from Moscow.
And it would be really silly for us to go to war with Russia over the status of Ukraine when some really basic negotiations could settle this whole crisis in about 10 minutes.
Unfortunately, a war is becoming more likely with each passing day.
In fact, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Russians have already begun “hybrid war” operations inside Ukraine…
Ukrainian officials say that Russia, which has positioned more than 100,000 troops around three sides of Ukraine, is stepping up a destabilization campaign involving cyberattacks, economic disruption and a new tactic: hundreds of fake bomb threats.
Russian forces and their proxies already control portions of Ukraine and frequent skirmish with government forces. The aim of Moscow’s intensifying hybrid campaign, Ukrainian officials say, is to weaken their country and sow panic, potentially provoking discontent and protests of the kind Russia fomented in eastern Ukraine in 2014 to justify its interventions there. U.S. and U.K. officials said last month they uncovered coup plots intended to install a puppet pro-Russian government.
The U.S. continues to escalate matters as well. On Saturday, it was being reported that the Russians had to chase a U.S. nuclear submarine out of their territorial waters…
A Russian naval vessel chased away a US submarine in Russian waters in the Pacific after the submarine ignored a Russian order to surface, Interfax news agency cited the defense ministry as saying on Saturday.
The Russian ministry called in the US defense attache after complaining that the submarine had entered its waters, the RIA news agency reported. Tensions between Moscow and Washington are already high over a Russian military buildup near Ukraine.
For years, I have been warning that a conflict between the United States and Russia was coming.
But I don’t want it to happen.
Nobody should want it to happen.
Because the Russians have more than 1,000 different ways that they could hurt us, and a war with Russia would very likely go nuclear at some point.
If Israel strikes Iran, what happens next? – Adam Hoffman - https://www.jpost.com/opinion/article-696367
As negotiations between the world powers and Iran in Vienna continue and reportedly enter their “final stage,” many in the Middle East – but also in Washington and European capitals – hold their breath to see if a return to a nuclear deal with Iran is possible.
Israel is also closely following developments in Vienna. Accepting the fact that some agreement with Iran is almost certainly on the way, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett recently said that “the agreement and what appears to be its conditions will damage the ability to take on [Iran’s] nuclear program.”
Yet, if the talks in Vienna fail to produce an agreement and Iran is free to pursue its nuclear program (in addition to its existing malign regional activities, including against Israeli targets), the prospects for an Israeli strike against Iran become much higher.
Worrying that a deal with Iran won’t be able to stop the country from developing a nuclear weapon, Israel already signaled its readiness to strike Iran. Bennett stated that “Israel will continue to ensure its full freedom of operation in any place and at any time, with no limitations,” and incoming IAF commander Maj.-Gen. Tomer Bar said that the Israel Air Force is ready to attack Iran “tomorrow.”
If Israel does indeed attack Iran, as Israeli officials have increasingly implied might happen, what impact would it have on the Middle East? How would the region be any different after such a development?
These questions may be hypothetical now, but they could very well turn out to be reality tomorrow.
TO ANSWER them, Wikistrat, a crowdsourced consultancy, ran a weeklong simulation from January 24 to 31, 2022, while the talks in Vienna were still taking place.
To explore how an Israeli strike would impact the region’s stability, the simulation focused on the five actors that were considered the most significant in the Gulf region: Iran, Saudi Arabia, the United States, China and Russia. The simulation included 31 experts from 13 countries and focused on three scenarios: a successful Israeli strike on Iran, a failed strike, and a partially successful strike.
Discussions in the simulation produced a few key insights, which observers of developments in the region may want to keep in mind as they try to make sense of the Middle East in the next few years.
First, the experts argued that in the years after an Israeli military strike (regardless of its results), the Middle East will enter the nuclear proliferation phase, which will include not only Israel but also Iran and possibly Saudi Arabia. An Israeli strike will embolden the Iran regime’s desire to have a nuclear weapon, viewing it – much like North Korea – as a guarantee against future attacks.
For its part, fearing an Iranian nuclear retaliation against it, Saudi Arabia will also seek to develop its own nuclear program. This is based on the participants’ assessment that a failed Israeli strike would drive the Saudi leadership to move forward as quickly as possible with its own nuclear program. A successful strike could serve as a catalyst to the Saudi nuclear program, encouraging Saudi decision-makers to leverage the attack and to catch up with the Iranian nuclear program.
How would an Israeli strike against Iran impact Israel?
A successful strike could lead to a Saudi-Israeli normalization. Some of the experts argued that a successful Israeli strike might cause Mohammed bin Salman, as king, to normalize relations with Israel, in the expectation that the entrenched anti-Iranian sentiment in Saudi Arabia would outweigh any backlash against normalization.
However, a failed strike could have a negative effect on Israel’s regional position, as Israel was perceived until then as a strong partner to the Gulf states on security affairs and a critical partner for confronting Iran. The experts assessed that if Israel failed to deliver on confronting Iran by failing to destroy its nuclear facilities, Saudi Arabia would be less inclined to engage with it.
While a nuclear deal between the US, other world powers and Iran seems almost certain at this point, the stakes for an unchecked nuclear Iran are higher than ever.
If Israel feels compelled to act alone to stop a nuclear Iran, a completely different geopolitical reality could emerge in the Middle East.
A simulation examining what happens when Israel strikes Iran, featuring some of the world’s top Iran and Middle East experts, gives us a look at the year after such a development.
Such a strike would impact Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia, China and the United States – but also Israel’s regional position.
Inciting God’s Fury - By Terry James - https://www.raptureready.com/2022/02/13/inciting-gods-fury-by-terry-james/
God’s prototype nation continues to point the way into prophesied, troubled times. Jesus said it would eventuate in the worst times of all human history (Luke 21: 25). Jeremiah the prophet called it the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7).
Just as the Lord’s dealing with His chosen people throughout millennia past, the cause for His dealing in the future with Israel revolves around the same problem: The people have forgotten Him. They depend upon strange gods–upon others—for their protection and salvation.
While Israel’s modern leadership recognizes only military power as central to the nation’s defense, they nonetheless seem to propose miraculous protective measures that almost mimic Old Testament acts of the God they no longer depend upon for their peace and safety.
The following news item is an interesting development in this regard. I think you will agree.
On Tuesday evening, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced that Israel will be fast-tracking the development of a laser defense system that will be used to defend against attacks from Gaza and Hezbollah. The lasers, using an autonomous detection and tracking system, will superheat drones and rockets which the developers claim will catch on fire within a few seconds. The system will supplement the Iron Dome that operates against short-range projectiles with the lasers concentrating on smaller projectiles.
The Defense Ministry said the laser uses a “highly advanced optical targeting system, with tracking capabilities and artificial intelligence” to locate a target “at highly precise levels of accuracy.”
Israel also uses David’s sling-and-arrow systems against long-range ballistic missiles.
“Within a year already the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) will bring into action a laser-based interception system, first experimentally, and later operationally, first in the south, then in other places,” he said in a speech at Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies. “And this will enable us, as the years advance, to surround Israel with a wall of lasers which will protect us from missiles, rockets, UAVs and other threats.”
The new laser-based system will drastically reduce the cost of defending against the frequent rocket attacks that target Israeli cities…. The Iron Dome systems deployed around Israel to protect its cities cost $50 million per battery and $100,000–150,000 per interception. Hamas fires low-tech missiles that are inexpensive and inaccurate. (“Wall of Lasers; A ‘Biblical Pillar of fire’ that protected Israelites from Egypt” by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz, 2/2/22, Biblical News)
The story of the modern “miracle” continues, with one of Israel’s rabbis weighing in.
When he heard of the innovation, Rabbi Aryeh Weingarten was unsurprised.
“Innovations and inventions are simply the mind of Man reflecting the aspect of God that is in nature,” he said. “Bennett’s vision of a ‘wall of lasers’ is a reflection of the Biblical pillar of fire that accompanied the Children of Israel in their Exodus, protecting the Jews from Egyptian arrows.”
The Israel Bible described the pillar in a manner that modern missile defense systems would do well to emulate:
According to Rashi, the pillar of cloud that led the Jewish people in the desert during the day moved behind the camp, and obscured the Egyptians’ vision as they progressed in their bloodthirsty pursuit of the Jewish people. The cloud protected Israel as they fled and absorbed the arrows shot by the Egyptians at the fleeing nation. Today, the soldiers of the Israeli Defense Forces are a pillar of defense, shielding Israel from her enemies. May the God of Israel continue to protect His people through His modern-day pillar of defense, just as He did long ago. (Ibid.)
It might be easy to give God glory for protecting His chosen nation in providing this modern warfare capability. However, the nation as a whole–particularly Israeli governmental and military leaderships—has all but replaced the God of their salvation with their own efforts in producing “miracle” weaponry and defense systems. Sadly, the price will yet have to be paid for the nation’s usurpation of the miraculous power of Israel’s God.
The following is a stunning heavenly opinion of this chosen nation when it casts its God to the side.
“And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.
I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men: Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this. For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up? For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter: Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps. Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures? To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste” (Deuteronomy 32:20-35).
This condemnation of Israel is what will bring on the Tribulation. God will call the nation back to Himself through great trouble–Jacob’s trouble. But a remnant will turn to their true Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, and God will restore His people and make them the head of all nations in the Millennial Kingdom.
Just imagine, based upon this condemnation of the fifth Book of Moses turned toward God’s chosen people, what awaits the Tribulation-world of earth dwellers, the rebels totally turned against Israel’s God!
You don’t want to be part of that world destined for God’s wrath and judgment. Here, once again, is how to become right with that God, who sent His Son to die for our redemption.
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10: 9-10).
Daily Jot: Sowing the seeds of freedom - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
World governments are using COVID 19 policies to control populations. Draconian measures of quarantining healthy people, locking down entire societies, has given birth to a new form of tyranny based on health and fear. Even now, when many countries and various state and local governments in the US are slithering silently into the night on their failed mask and vaccine mandates, the stench of freedom’s death lingers. Truckers around the world are trying to deliver a cargo of common sense to politicians and bureaucrats about following political science at the expense of real science, but those efforts are being met with government resistance through the already established COVID control system.
It seems that any form of dissent that doesn’t support the agenda of the tyrants is labeled as terrorism, anti-science, and misinformation. The misinformation, however, is on the part of the tyrants. The politicians and news media say that the truckers’ protests against COVID mandates is violent. This is false. The politicians that praised Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests, trying to paint them as peaceful when violence followed in their wake, are the same ones saying that police and the government should crack down on protests against COVID mandates. In Canada, politicians are demanding an end to the protests, which they say are unlawful occupation.
Even the court system in Canada is being used to end the protests. AP reports that Ontario Superior Court Chief Justice Geoffrey Morawetz ordered protesters at the Ambassador Bridge between the US and Canada to stand down or face exorbitant fines of up to $100,000. Other US-Canada border crossings were also blocked, disrupting the flow of goods between the two countries. Ontario Premier Doug Ford declared a state of emergency and threatened to take away personal and commercial licenses of anyone who doesn’t comply. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that he and Joe Biden agreed that the protests must end. The media agrees and is pointing fingers at conservatives in the US for encouraging such protests. Even the US Department of Homeland Security is implying the protesters are on terrorist watch.
We are seeing pushback in Canada, the US and other parts of the world against the entire tyrannical agenda of using personal health as a weapon against civil liberties. People are fed up with seeing that the “science” doesn’t match the outcome. Governments, loving their newfound power over people, continue to press useless and “unscientific” mask mandates and are demanding that everyone get their shot of serum that does not prevent infection or transmission of the COVID disease, but makes you a good citizen. We are about to see a great shift in power worldwide. You will determine which way it goes. Call to mind Galatians 6:7, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 5:13 says the brethren are called unto liberty. Let us sow seeds of freedom to reap liberty in Christ.
Daily Devotion: Heart and Soul - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. —Mark 12:30
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/heart-and-soul/ - Listen
The Hebrew word for soul is actually closer to our use of the word heart. It speaks of something deep inside a person.
Jesus actually used this phrase in the Garden of Gethsemane when He said to the disciples, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death” (Mark 14:34 NKJV). He was emoting in that sense.
And in the same way, our love for God needs to be emotive and intelligent. One doesn’t cancel out the other.
Jesus said, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength’” (Mark 12:29–30 NLT).
After Simon Peter denied the Lord three times, the resurrected Jesus posed a question to His wayward child: “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” (John 21:15 NLT). Jesus asked him this three times.
Notice that Jesus didn’t say, “Peter, are you theologically correct?” or “Peter have you been obedient?” Rather, Jesus was asking, “Peter, do you love me?”
Do you know that it’s possible to be theologically correct and not love God? Of course, I believe that if you love God, you will be theologically correct to the best of your ability. I also believe that if you love God, you will want to do what honors Him. That’s because Jesus said, “If you love me, obey my commandments” (John 14:15 NLT).
If we don’t have love as our basis, however, then it all will be out of whack. We start there. We need to love God with our emotions and our intellect, with our strength, and with our time and resources. We need to love God with everything that we have. And if we get this right, then everything will find its proper place.
