Love is the law’s fulfillment!
Love is the law’s fulfillment — and it comes with first “Love of God the Father! There is a peace that dwells within us that comes with having an intimate relation with the One God Jehovah.. For that intimacy makes us want to please him.. And “that want to please” …makes, or should make, us search God’s Inspired Word the Bible to find and put into practice that which will achieve that end result..
I am not a church goer …for I view institutional religion of all persuasions locked in an antiquity of thinking and practices that suffocate “true worship of the One God.” Does religion do some good? The answer is yes it does..
However Satan, God the Father’s arch enemy also does some good.. Scripture states Satan “keeps transforming himself into an angel of light,” (2 Corinthians 11:14).. An angel of light that allows man to see good in evil — war, strife, abortion, racism, vengeance, cheating, divorce, dysfunctional life styles, greed, and in film — where evil and violence are glorified — and made sexy!.. All are things people in and out of institutional religion embrace. ..
The takeaway! The peace in heart, mind and spirit, one is seeking long term…will not be found in the institution of religiosity.. For in the small print, they all think of the other — as lost shepherds.. Scripture calls them false religions… and by their works they are identifiable.. In fact, God’s Word, the Bible, holds false religion responsible for “the blood . . . of all those who have been slaughtered on the earth.” (Revelation 18:24) Because false religion has failed to teach people about the true God, whose very essence is love – making those religions, blood guilty in God’s eyes.—1 John 4:8.
Further in the Book of Revelation referring to false religion as Babylon the Great (Rev. 17:1–22:21) states: Babylon the Great,” the world empire of false religion, is a disgusting segment of Satan’s wicked world. The 11th vision portrays her as a “great harlot”—an immoral woman—“sitting upon a scarlet-colored wild beast.” She is to be completely destroyed by “the ten horns” of the very beast that is carrying her. (Rev. 17:1, 3, 5, 16) Likening the harlot to a “great city,” the subsequent vision announces her fall and issues an urgent call to God’s people to “get out of her.” The demise of the great city is mourned by many. There is rejoicing in heaven, however, because of “the marriage of the Lamb.” (Rev. 18:4, 9, 10, 15-19; 19:7) In the 13th vision, the rider of “a white horse” goes to war with the nations. He brings Satan’s wicked world to its end.—Rev. 19:11-16.
What does a Believer once out of Babylon the Great do? We search Scripture for that answer!
Turn to Mark 12:28 thru. 31 — 28 Now one of the scribes that had come up and heard them disputing, knowing that he (Jesus) had answered them in a fine way, asked him: “Which commandment (mankind’s calling) is first of all?”
29 Jesus answered: “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel, Jehovah our God is one Jehovah, 30 and you must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind and with your whole strength.’
31 The second is this, ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
Further scriptures on Love of Neighbor! Romans 13:8 thru. 10)
8 Do not YOU people be owing anybody a single thing, except to love one another; for he that loves his fellowman has fulfilled [the] law. 9 For the [law code], “You must not commit adultery, You must not murder, You must not steal, You must not covet,” and whatever other commandment there is, is summed up in this word, namely, “You must love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does not work evil to one’s neighbor; therefore love is the law’s fulfillment.
Share in God’s Ministry and find real joy! – Luke 2: 10 thru 11:
10 … an angel said to them: “Have no fear, for, look! I am declaring to YOU good news of a great joy that all the people will have, 11 because there was born to YOU today a Savior, who is Christ the Lord..
Always remember and keep in your quiver – Scripture @ Mathew 18:20 — 20 For where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there I am in their midst!
Hallelujah says one, say all!
