Is God Love?

Is God Love?

Good afternoon,

I pray you are hearing the Spirit within you today and following his voice into rest regardless of circumstances.  Actually, I believe you are because his voice sounds just like our own thoughts and we often follow it instinctively without even know it.  I sat down to share more about God’s “fire” and how it is refining and purifying in a loving, disciplining way and not destructive, but he had other plans I guess.

So, I guess he wants to share about how God is “Love”.  No problem here as I am just a passenger.  I don’t even know how to drive the car and keep it on the road!

Have you ever asked yourself how God can be “love” and yet forever punish or “destroy” someone in an eternally tormenting and destructive fire for “rejecting him” or for not being “perfect”? 

It doesn’t make any sense, does it?  It didn’t for me either and I am so glad I didn’t accept the answers that I was told to believe that were then followed up with “you can’t know the things of God” if you persisted.  “Maybe we can’t, but isn’t that why Jesus came?  To reveal God to us, according to Luke 10:22?  That just doesn’t sound like the God I am reading about in the Bible”, I would think. I am so glad I listened to him from within as he revealed who he really is from his love letter to us we call the Bible.  It’s right there in his Word so you can be encouraged yourself.  Friend, it is so good and we have so much to learn about the entire Old Testament and why God often appears angry and wrathful.  I hope to share something very big and very important in the next day or so regarding this.Continue reading
