Love and hate are both power and emotional words in as much as they are directly opposite to each other, meaning, they can never agree. You need to find out their differences specifically in relationship. i almost would say; these are the two strongest words in the dictionary.
Not just that love and hate are very strong words, they are most impactful and influence the entire world by more than ninety percent.
i love using love and hate together because they are better understood when both are used at the same time. i believe we have not talked enough about this two words, that is why the world is the way it is today.
What is Love and Hate
LOVE IS THE ABILITY to see another person as yourself. Love is affection, adoration. It is extreme feeling of attachment. Love is a willingness to prioritize another’s well-being or happiness above your own True love dos not discriminate, it takes everybody as being the same. True love depicts what Jesus did on the cross, the blood is for everybody, not only Israelite, but for whosoever.
Hate is Is detestation, revulsion, disgust, dislike, animosity. Hatred is based on the perception of the other, but also has a strong relationship with ourselves, with our personal history, and its effects on our personality, feelings, ideas, beliefs, and especially our identity. Certain adversity in our lives can trigger and intensify hatred: jealousy, failure, guilt and so on.
God love everybody the same, he puts us on the same platform. Whatever anybody is able to do, another person can also do it. The same grace is for everybody, the Holy Spirit in me is the same Holy Spirit in you.
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
If it is one Jesus for everybody, one God for everybody, one Holy Spirit for everybody, one blood for everybody; then we are all the same, absolutely no difference.
The only place of difference is in position, attainment, achievement which is never due to the level of education but absolutely the level of the knowledge and understanding of the word of God which is the knowledge of God himself.
Outside this, nothing. Some people are more disciplined than others, some are more committed, more dedicated, more sacrificial in seeking to know God; this is the only thing that will give you an edge over another.
The general overseer is the general overseer because he knows more than every other persons in the oversee community. Do not misplace priority, it is the knowledge that brings the anointing.
It is the word of God that carries anointing, it is not the anointing that carries the word. In the Old Testament it was by election, that glory was done away with. In the eternal glory; it is by knowledge.
Please never misunderstand me when I talk about the knowledge of God. That is why I always use understanding with it. I do not mean having the ability to quote the bible.
I have seen people who knows how to quote the bible more than everybody, but in the midst of it, they were stealing. If you know God, you will not steal. You can know the bible but not God. I do not use “know the bible” because knowing the bible is not knowing God.
The bible has the letters, those letters can kill you, because what you do not understand, you misunderstand, misunderstanding means you have gotten it the wrong way, it means you have entered error, and definitely you are going to apply it wrongly.
Not only that you will have wrong result, but it might be a tragedy, the result might be fatal. This is exactly what happens to the 7 sons of Shiva in the bible. The demons told them; even though you carry the bible, you are using the same name of Jesus but we do not know you, we know Paul, Peter.
God is a spirit, it is not possible to know God using physical means. It is the Holy Spirit that teach us about God, and if the Holy Spirit does not teach you about God, forget it, you will never understand. Those letters you see in the bible are just there for references.
The earth will be filled with the knowledge of God does not mean the earth will be filled with the bible, it means the knowledge of God is not the bible. Every time I sit down to write, I am not dictating from the bible. I can write more than 3 topics from one verse because I am taking it from the spirit.
It is not about good character, whatever good character a child of God developed, it is due to the knowledge and understanding of God he has.
Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
If you do not love your brother whom you see, how can you love God whom you do not see? Jesus said “by these shall all men know that you are my disciple, when ye love one another.
LOVE AND HATE; LOVE MEANS SACRIFICE, HATE MEANS SELFISHNESS
SACRIFICE MEANS out of inconvenience, at your own detriment. It will cost you something definitely. You need to know that love is a seed, definitely your turn will soon show up, so do unto others as you would wish them to do to you. Do not look at the cost, the detriment, the ransom. Apart from contributing to humanity, you are simply obeying God.
Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
LOVE MEANS LONGSUFFERING
Though love and hate are two opposite words, the ability to endure and the inability to endure one another are the distinguishing factors that mostly defines these two words. Longsuffering is the ability to endure people,
Longsuffering means you are being tolerant, accommodating, and selfless. Even though it last for a while, you endure. This is definitely not for nothing, believe me. When you start reaping the benefits that comes from this lifestyle.
Many times when we see people at the top, we do not know the kind of sacrifice they have laid on the altar to earn that, and God reward faithfulness.
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
This is very important, it is the love of God that is shed abroad in our heart that is extended to our neighbors. Meaning, you cannot love people if you do not love God. It is out of the love you have for God that you share to your neighbors. Love a spiritual thing. God is a spirit, God is love.
You must be spiritual to understand the things of the spirit. The foundation of spirituality starts from being born of the spirit, which means being born of God. So there are two sets of people; he that is born of the flesh is flesh, and he that is born of the spirit is spirit.
Flesh means flesh in the flesh, spirit means spirit though in the flesh. So since God is love, God is spirit, love is spirit. To understand love you must be born of the spirit, you must be born again. After being born again, the Holy Spirit will teach you through the word of God.
This means you need what the bible calls Holy Spirit baptism with the evidence of speaking in tongues. The Holy Spirit is the person that will make your bible study experience meaningful.
THE TWO GREAT COMMANDMENTS
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Love the lord your God with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul. Let me show you another meaning of love. When you tell somebody you love him or her, it means you cannot do without the person.
Take example from a friend you really love, you want to always be around him, you want to always go with him to anywhere, you want to talk with him always, his picture is everywhere in your room.
Look at what happens when two people are about to get married, during courtship, the love will be hot, always going together, always eating together, how do you quantify this level of intimacy.
Some will give the girl all they have, the girl is the one with their ATM card, meanwhile their parents in the village does not have food to eat. Many men literally forget themselves, they do not have a life of their own because of a woman. This is a very high level of intimacy, in fact humanly, the highest. Look at the way you worship the woman, you kneel before to plead, she must not get.
Some have disowned their mother, if that will please their woman. Look at the level of sacrifice just to please a fellow man. In fact at this point somebody may even want to die for somebody because of love. Some men have had to steal, just to get enough money to satisfy their woman.
They do not even care that they might get caught up and killed for stealing to please a woman.
But come to think of it; WHAT ABOUT GOD WHO CREATED YOU? HOW IS YOUR AFFECTION TOWARDS HIM? HOW IS YOUR INTIMACY WITH HIM? HOW IS YOUR LOVE FOR HIM?. I
If you do not love God more than the way you love your woman during courtship, if you do not show God more affection, if you cannot give God more time, it means something else has taken the place of God in your life, and that thing is your god.
That thing will have to protect you, preserve you, and give you life. I am using the word “thing” because it might not be a woman, it can be anything. Some have treated money like this.
What I am sharing is a common problem that many, even believers are facing. God is a jealous God, you must give him his place in your life, if not, and there will definitely be a problem. Making anything to take the place of God in your life attract an automatic curse.
I do not believe a believer cannot come under a curse. A curse is simply a restriction, a limitation placed on a man in a particular area. If you are struggling in a any area, you work so hard, but what you get back is so small, not enough.
A man is up to 50yrs but cannot marry, you are struggling to meet needs every day. You are owing so much and cannot pay. Things do not easily work for you. These are all limitations, curses.
Do not say I did not go to school. There are many who did not go to school, but they are well to do today. They are many who did not have people to sponsor them in school, but they went to school, they sponsored themselves.
People sell crayfish, push truck, wash plate, and sweep to sponsor themselves in school. Do not give excuse for it, if not you will remain there, till the day you decide to do something about it.
Many curses are simply due to wrong actions or disobedience, and once you reverse the actions or start to obey, the curse or curses are broken automatically, no prayer is needed.
But people, instead of sitting back to check their lives, retrace their steps and live right, they will be moving from one prayer house to another; trying to break the curse, and Satan will definitely deceive them and point to witches as the source of their affliction, complicating the issue.
If the people which are called by my name will kneel down and pray, and turn from their wicked ways… then I will heal…..
You do not pray alone, you must also turn from your wicked ways. Turning from the wicked way is the issue. If you ask God for forgiveness, it does not end there, you must stop the sin.
People need to understand what sin is. It is not just doing what is wrong. One wrong thing you do can cause many people to suffer, cry, and be hurt, tragedies, it might even be the source of dearth to thousands of people through many generation.
You might trace the real cause of Second World War to something that somebody did 100 years back. The fact is that nobody can knows the chain of these happenstances, hence nobody can trace them.
Isaac and Ishmael is an exemplary representation of love and hate. You ca take example from Abraham who committed adultery that gave birth to Ishmael, and what an angel told the mother about Ishmael. You cannot count how many people have died in the world till today, because of the disobedience that lead to the birth of Ishmael, and the death toll will continue like that till Jesus comes; that was the prophecy.
Look at what the whole human race has gone through because of the disobedience of Adam and Eve. Can you see how small the sin was; just eating an apple out of disobedience? Look at the generations that have passed, thousands of years before Jesus came to correct that error.
Imagine when rapture will happen, and the time that will elapse before Jesus return on second coming, and when the earth will finally be destroyed for the new earth.
Imagine people’s torments, sufferings, and deaths through thousands of generations, all because of one disobedience.
If you can imagine the number people that are suffering, crying, tormented because of one thing you did. Most of them will pray to God, cursing, crying to God for vengeance on whoever made them suffer. What do you think happen to those prayers?
Let’s take for example, because of your lies, somebody was sacked from work. That might have happened many years back. The person might have had 5 children, and the children had to drop out of school because of that.
Two of the children may join armed robbers, some cult, some of the children may get pregnant and have children out of wedlock. In any case, this family have been thrown into serious jeopardy, and the family may suffer up to the next 7 to 10 generations because of one person’s lie, except God by mercy cause one of them to be successful.
It is not possible that you will not suffer the consequences of these ordeal you caused, except you get born again, and turn from your ways.
We have been on the two great commandments. I have been trying to demonstrate the impact and what it means to love God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your might.
God demands that you love him just like that and nothing less. It is not any impossible or hard thing to do. If you can give it to woman, if you can give it to money, you can give even more to GOD.
Until you are able to develop this love for God first, what you are giving to money or woman, is lust, never love. I had said that God is love, and until love comes from God, it is not love, it is lust. There is a difference between love and lust.
Lust is thirst, a deep desire to get something for selfish interest. It is envy, covetousness, a yearning, and hunger for something. It is a strong desire to get at something.
A man can have a strong desire to have sex with a woman, making him to do everything he can do to fulfil that desire. He can sell his destiny like Esau did to Jacob to make sure he ate yam porridge.
Lust is simply a strong desire, it’s not even an affection. Affection is liking someone, being friendly. You have a positive reason. You can like somebody because the person has a virtue, it can be a good character, a good quality.
The person may be good at playing football, dancing, cycling, boxing and others. Many people like Messi, Ronaldo, because they are good at football, it does not mean people lust after them.
Love and hate were not always together from the beginning of creation. Love was there, hate only joined after the fall of Adam. Love is of God, hate is of the devil.
