Amen. The Bible is a teaching of goodness.
Hello there. I hope this finds you well.
You are capable of Loving God (hear me out, friend *smile) more than anything else.
I'll put this in the first person. I'll begin in the negative:
If I love pride and greed, when I read the Bible I'll shrink back
at all The Word of God that's contrary to pride and greed. I won't let
it come into my heart. I won't let it be implanted into my heart. You
know why? Because I love pride and greed more than I do the Lord. So it will
have no place in me to work.
But if I love the Lord with all my heart I'm saying:
"Lord, I come to you with The whole heart!"
"Lord, I love you more than jealousy, rejection"
"Lord I love you more than anger!" (to rear violently in vengence - to break away)
"Lord I love you more than greed!"
"Lord I love you more than slander!"
"Lord I love you more than the approval of man!"
"Lord I love you more than pride and unforgiveness!"
"Lord I love you more than hatred and criticism!"
"Lord I love you more than revengue and impatience!"
"Lord I love you more than sarcasm and bitterness!"
"Lord I love you more than anything else!"
Ahd He'll say, "That's fine; Sounds like I'm Lord. Now pick up your Bible and I'll
show you have to have the Nature like Mine."
And then you'll be reading The Bible, as your going to be sitting right there and your going to see some things. And I'm going to tell you what -
peace is going to come all over you. I'm telling you it's going to change your life! As we come to things in The Word of God and your heart is
contrary, The Spirit of God will show you. He'll show you as you come to these things.
And then you have a choice. Your either going to love this things (that's contrary to God's Word, like unforgiveness) more than you do The Lord or
your going to give it up. That thing (i.e. Unforgiveness) in your heart have a stronghold tied to it. Any of those things you practice (i.e. greed,
slander, revengue, bitterness etc) a stronghold is on it. As you sit there you'll see these things mentioned to give up in The Word of God. Do you
know why you come to The Bible? Because the Bible is what perfects you in the Nature of God. Mabus, this is how your Born again by The Word of God.
And everything that you see in this Bible, because you love the Lord with all your heart, everything you see in this Bible The Spirit of God will
show you, "Here this thing is" i.e. (bitterness, unforgivenss, rejection). And He'll show you that you got this anger there inside of you that you
are practicing. And you'll say, "Well,....Lord I love you more than I do anger." So I'll suffer in the flesh but I cease from sin. I give up
anger, because I want to be like God more than I want to be like the devil (i.e. pride, self centerness, greed etc.). Anger (above) is the nature of
Satan. Then you'll read along here (in The Bible) and The Spirit of God will show you 'grummbling'. And you'll say, "Lord, I want to be like you,
more than I want to be like Satan. LORD, I love you more than I do grummbing, I give up Grummbling; I renouce grummbling." BANG!!! And Mabus when we
renouce grummbling in our heart the strongholds begin to take off. They can come back, you know. You have to deal with the flesh. The Powers of
Darkness attach themselves to the sins and deeds of the flesh (i.e. sarcasm, slander, rejection etc.).
In the Beginning The Spirit of God comes into us.
God's Holy Spirit then then leads us to The Pure Word of God to wash us; to be renewed - being Born again by an incoruptible seed; The Word of God
which lives and abides forever. Then God's same Spirit leads us to put to death enemies on our land, as He natural taught Israel.
