Characteristics of love - never fails


1 Corinthians 13:8 Charity never faileth......

The Amplified Bible says -- Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]

God will always love us as His children. Love includes discipline. God's love toward us is not a cupcake kind of love. He does not give us our selfish desires and requests. He wants us to grow closer to Him, love Him more deeply every day and follow Him more and more closely, all for our eternal good and His glory. So we too, in our relationships with others, we love but not with a cupcake kind of love. We love the way God loves, a sacrificial love, that encourages others to live holy, God honoring lives for the Lord, live to glorify the Lord in all you do and say.

Characteristics of love....does not rejoice in iniquity

1 Corinthians 13:6

 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; KJV

it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. ESV

We are studying the verses from 1 Corinthians that describe what love is. The word charity is used in the KJV and translated as love in other translations. The real love that God gives is not a sensual love, it is a kind and patient love and it affects how we treat others every day.

Love does not rejoice in iniquity - I want to comment on this as it pertains to the homosexual issue. When the US supreme court ruled on sodomite marriage recently, some people including President Obama used the phrase "love wins". Sadly homosexuality is not at all about love, it cannot be, because love is of God and homosexuality is not of God. It is of the devil. Homosexuality is a deception of the devil, it is not love - it is lust and greed and perversion in full. The Bible clearly states in the Old Testament and the New Testament that homosexuality is an abomination in the eye of the Lord. 

Now we read in 1 Corinthians 13: 6 that love does not rejoice in iniquity. When we have the love of God in our hearts we are grieved and do not rejoice when evil is promoted all around us. As Christians we are offended and grieved by the very same things that offend and grieve the heart of the Lord and this includes homosexuality.

When we walk in the love of God we rejoice in the truth. The Bible is the true Word of God and we delight in it. The Bible gives us hope. I have found that the Lord will speak to me and into my situation as I read my Bible. He will take the portion of Scripture I am reading and speak encouragement, hope and truth into my heart. The joy of the Lord is our strength!! The Lord and His Word wins!!

Prophecy Update JD Farag - July 12,2015

In this week's update, JD Farag talks about the pretribulation rapture.Personally I believe that as Christians we will go through some of the tribulation. The important thing is to always be ready to meet the Lord at any moment. Keep short accounts with the Lord. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus and trust in Him for protection and care today, tomorrow and in every trial and persecution that comes to us. Be a witness for the Lord in these end days!

Pastor J.D. talks about how the events that transpired last week points to Bible prophecy that ultimately finds its fulfillment in the tribulation and if there was ever a time to believe that the rapture of the church has to happen prior to the seven year tribulation, it is now.
