The Love Gospel

Image

You see my friends this is the word that best explains the true nature of the Gospel of God and of His Christ which is Love agape style!  The church has been running from the teaching and implications of this self giving love for far to long, and there is a movement afoot to reclaim the Gospel for Love!  Actually there have been people proclaiming this message since the beginning but they where always marginalized or worse, in fact the original messenger of this God message was crucified.  The last stronghold of the enemy is the same as it has always been fear, fear of Hell that is and judgment for not obeying the Gospel of Man in all it’s forms. 

Jesus said:  “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,  so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven.”   Remember these are not just the words of Jesus but also the mind and very heart of God a heart of unconditional Love.  I hope you see the implications of The Love Gospel here my friends for as the prophet said “Salvation is of the Lord.”

Jesus also said: As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”  Is it any wonder while many Christians are not really full of joy and peace of mind?   Believing as many do that God’s Love is so puny as to only rescue a few of his children the rest sadly to be tortured forever, with no recourse by the God of the universe helpless in the face of a Man made Gospel of religious works.

The Good News though is being reborn in the hearts of many who are beginning to speak up and reject with boldness the lie that has been told for so very long to so very many!  You see it is the Gospel that includes all although all do not know it, the enemy and well as the stranger in the land, it is beautiful because it is all big God Love of the Agape kind.  It’s a Radical Grace which rejects the notions  and theologies of men who would without hesitation by those same theologies, do condemn the whole world to save their own souls and the souls of their friends and family.

Jesus said this:  “For God so loved the world,that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  Now the perishing is here and now in this world for those who don’t understand that God’s loves the whole world, do you know that, do you believe that unconditionally, for the children of God surely do! 

Don’t you see any Gospel that is conditional, changing and self-seeking is a false Gospel as Paul so keenly warned us about in many of his letters. 

This false Gospel is conditional because it puts man’s ideas of God’s holiness and justice above the truth taught by Jesus, Paul & John. 

It is changing because as some believe you can gain it and loss it at your own choice, with God a mere bystander to the will of man.

It is self-seeking because in many places it has become all about going to heaven in order not to go to hell, what could be more self-seeking than that message?

The Apostle Paul teaches us that God’s love is self emptying in the Philippians 2, and it has always been this way before creation as well as in the eons to come, when all shall confess and finally know as they are known by God in Love. 

The beauty of this simple blog post is some will read this and for the first time get a taste of The Love Gospel, and shall repent for the Kingdom of God has come to them today.

Global Salvation

Image

So here in the West when we talk about Salvation for the most part it is individual in Nature almost Narcissistic.  We talk about a person having to make a decision and then you join a group of other saved individuals.  You are then rewarded for making this choice or so you are told, with the promise of Heaven.   A place we are told that is full of individuals who have made a similar choice during their life time here on fallen earth.  Of course I need not remind you of the consequences of not making this choice during your lifetime here on earth.

That being said what if Salvation is not about the individual but rather about the group, what if the reason the group is Saved is be transformation for the Whole.  You see in the west if you ask people what they need to survive rarely will they say a Family much less a Global Family. 

Now here is a radical thought but what if the Whole Globe is already saved but this potential rests with all of us believing it.  I mean that Global Salvation is just awaiting a cooperative work from within.  This Creation all of it just waiting for cooperation from the gods within, from those of us who have been saved from the thinking of Us vs Them.  You see we become saved not from Hell but from Hellish thinking, we become saved not for heaven but from a heaven that doesn’t effect this Globe.  We become saved from any Religion with narrow, individualist and tribal interpretations of the language of Salvation.  We are saved all the whole globe we just need to believe in each other and our global future in Love.  Can we start with just ourselves and a Salvation built around “I got mine tribes?”  No that’s not the point of this present and powerfully potential Salvation, and the reason why that “Salvation” is not working we are running contrary to God’s will that All be saved or rather restored.   Now when I say restored I am not talking about some perfect work, but rather the loving process of co-creation for the ages to come.

Because when you become aware it was and has been loved and saved for this process of co-creation by God.  Then you realize Salvation is God’s and Our global project beyond mere tribal and religious distinctions but yet including them as well.  It is here that we begin to rethink and remodel that beautiful Global message of The Prophets, Jesus and many Others.   It is here that we begin to reach out for other like minded and enlightened souls on this Big Blue Globe.  It is here we realize Global Salvation merely waits for our cooperation as the Daughters and Sons of the Living God. 

Now what we do with the revelation “We does include me, but can’t exclude Them” is the great work of this Spiritual New Age!

The North Wind and the Sun

Aesop tells a fable about the north wind and the sun. 

It opens with a challenge about a traveler’s cloak. 

The north wind bets the sun that he can get that cloak off the traveler.

The north wind begins to blow, but the harder he blows, the more tightly the traveler wraps his cloak around him. 

Then comes the sun’s turn. 

The day quickly warms, and the man on the road just as quickly removes his cloak.

 

We live in a time where we try to change things by force,

that in fact can only be transformed by the Gentle use of Power.

The Universe was not created with Great Force but by Gentle Power,

not with a bang but with a Patient Unfolding.

People are not changed or Transformed by Force,

but the Patient use of Gentle Power over Time.

The Gentile in Power is a word and that word is Love,

and it has been said the Power of Love Never Fails.

Try it it’s the way of all divine Human Beings…
