Love is not a singular trait of God, it is his substance, the summation of his character. Love is the unified expression of God, the framework that binds all his traits into a single voice. Much as your body is made of several parts, so also is Love. Love is the product formed by the eyes of Hope, the ears of Faith, the mind of Wisdom, the arm of Power, the walk of Endurance, and the beating heart of eternal Life. Like the six intricate points of a snowflake clustered around a beautiful center, Love is the aggregation of God’s timeless traits. Every utterance of God’s Love includes portions from all his radiant qualities. For God is love. As a bouquet of resplendent blooms, Love is a mix of spiritual scent, color, and shape, each contributing to the magnificence of the whole. Love suffers long, and is kind; love envy’s not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeks not its own, is not provoked, takes not account of evil; rejoices not in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.
The glory of Created Love is demonstrated in the Bible by the forty days that Jesus Christ lived upon the earth, after his resurrection. He shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God. After his resurrection, Jesus basked in the glowing, peaceful elation of a champion, having completed his earthly processing and achieved his stellar destiny. During this time, his actions exhibited the maturity of the seven traits of begotten Love. This Love is achieved by willing surrender unto self-sacrifice. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. This self-sacrificial death results in an award of Life that cannot be contained in the Created Realm. Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen. Resurrected Love instills Hope in the captives of mourning, piercing the heart with urgent recognition. Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Love is the instructor of God’s Wisdom. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, and said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer. Love incubates the Endurance needed for every ordeal. As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. Love is the Power to command creation. Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Love has the Faith to make Christ in you, a tangible reality. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. Begotten Love is the urgent desire to give and to bless. Having said this, He infused Himself into them, and said, “Receive Holy spirit. If you expel sins from any, they will be free.” Love is unqualified forgiveness. Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? … Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. This Fathering Love will eventually deliver all men from the grip of death and decay. Now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes … an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not thet broken.
Love is the nature and substance of God and his begotten Sons. It is the end of your mortal limitations. It is your departure from the confines of creation. It is your entrance into the timeless existence of Creative Splendor. And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. Because of its sweeping magnitude, it is very difficult for mortals to comprehend begotten Love. To locate its presence within your spirit, it is easier to divide Love into its component parts. Then you can assess each of these traits individually, testing their development in your spirit and pressing for their maturity, one at a time. We have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God … knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts. Whoever will perfect begotten Love must first perfect its seven attributes. Love will bring Life to your spirit through the death of your carnality. Love will Endure hardship from God’s hand. Love will cling to God’s Wisdom, not yours, and surrender to his Power. Love will anchor its Hope to spiritual goals, and by Faith, attain them. Now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love. If you cannot trust God with your children, spouse, business, and health, even when he destroys them, then you do not Love him. This Love must be the goal of your life, for apart from it there is nothing of any lasting value. If I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profiteth me nothing. Like Jesus Christ before you, you are expected to become a new wellspring of begotten Love. That the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them. This Love is the end product and final output of your earthly campaign. The aim of the aforementioned charge is divine and self-sacrificial love out of a heart which is pure. Those who successfully reproduce this Love within themselves will become the Sons of God. Brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible.
The birth of Love in your spirit is your ticket to the Spiritual Realm. Love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God. When it is complete in you, it will carry you out of the Created Realm and into the infinite majesty of begotten brilliance. To know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. As a baby in the womb, so is your spirit on the earth. Even now you are enclosed, cradled by your Heavenly Father. Though your eyes are dim, his vision is infinite, and he guides your every move. He can never leave you for you two are joined by an umbilical of spirit which flows with his love. Though his voice seems muffled, still you know its sound and recognize his call. It is a thrum of comfort that resonates with assurance and reminds that all is well. If you stay connected and spiritually healthy and continue to grow, you will complete your gestation according to your Father’s design. Then your spirit will irrevocably come to the birth as his Begotten Son. The prospective Sons of God have been implanted in the Created Realm by the hope of their Father. He has confined them to the processes of time, as embryos within a womb, that they might become Begotten Beings. Your life on earth is only a dull, watery representation of the spiritual life that awaits you. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. As an unborn child you are here to develop the senses and traits that you will need as a Son of God. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. For six thousand years planet earth has tingled in spiritual gestation. And from this incubator God will have Sons, born from his own genetics and into his own image. Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons.
Jesus Christ is the first of this issue. His birth inaugurated and validated the birth process for the Sons of God. Jesus came to earth to experience a sequence of events. These events were designed by God to produce the maturity of a begotten spirit within him. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Jesus had a physical birth and then a spiritual birth. He was attacked by Satan and falsely condemned. His crucifixion was arranged by his Father. By his travail he completed the seven gestations of a spiritually Created Being. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. By surrendering unto death Jesus came to the glory of resurrected life. By this resurrection he became the first spiritually begotten Son of God. Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. Having become the substance of begotten love, Jesus was then raised into the Begotten Realm. Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. By this process Jesus established a pattern that you are expected to follow, precisely. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. As the firstborn Son of God, Jesus is the prototype for many brothers. Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead. The same scriptures and principles that made Jesus a begotten Son of God, can produce the same result in you. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled. Jesus blazed the trail from death to life, from in-part to whole, from infant to adult. Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead. Now, according to the plan of God, you are expected to follow his example. As many as did receive him to them he gave authority to become sons of God, to those believing in his name, who, not of blood nor of a will of flesh, nor of a will of man but, of God were begotten. (Young’s). Through the travails that God brings to your life you are to become his begotten Son. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps. You are to become all that Jesus Christ now is. So He [God] fixes the time for the birth of her child [Jesus], and He will restore with the Children of Israel, The rest of His brothers! – YOU AND ME.
