The Sanctifying Force; The Spirit Of Love

The spirit of love ruling the spirit and controlling the heart of man is the sanctifying force and purifying power of the Holy Spirit. The workings of the spirit of God in the dimension of love is what sanctifies and purifies us to holiness.

The level of success satan enjoys is determined by the number of souls (that are prepared for glory) whose destiny he is able to destroy and ends them up in hell with him. You shall not be one of them, despite him targeting man because he knows his time is up!

Loving one another is the proof of God’s grace upon your life. Remember it was the love of God that gave birth to the new birth therefore we are children of love. When love for people waxes cold then are we disconnected from grace. Every disconnection from grace brings one under the rulership of satan. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold ….Mt 24:10-12.

The spirit of love is the power of righteousness. When you go through the word you find that there is a direct relationship between righteousness, holiness and love. God is love and everything He does He does in love. The spirit of man is the well spring of love; the spirit of bitterness, anger and hatred in the heart is the well spring of iniquity.

Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 he that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love ….1 John 4:7-8.

Righteousness holds key to the life of glory for which we are called. Therefore with bitterness, anger etc how can a person love? Love cannot afford to live in hate. How can two walk together except they be agreed. Amos 3:3
The source is what determines the flow. Either righteousness or iniquity flows in your spirit. And one of the two determines what spirit is at work in you or not. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? …..James 3:11

Therefore guard your heart with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life. The heart of man is the fountain of life. Without Christ in you there’s no hope of glory. So if you continue with deadly emotions such as anger, bitterness, hatred etc the Holy Spirit will leave you alone. Allow the spirit to overwhelm and walk you in love. It is your choice to determine what force rules your heart.

You cannot carry bitterness and evil in your heart and say you are of God. It is the spirit of love that confirms and establishes us in God. Your seal of redemption and sanctification is love from your heart. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth is us, and his love is perfected in us. 13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his spirit …..1 John 4: 11-13.

The spirit of love works in us to bring us to perfection. You cannot be righteous if you are not in God and He in you. It is the Holy Spirit that works in us to will and do the good pleasures of God. Make a choice to live in love as a child of God. Every time you choose to handle and issue in love God has flowed through you and that guarantees blessings.

The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. And the spirit of love is what stimulates joy and peace. It is what gives birth to righteousness. If you are a hater you cannot love people. Let not the devil extinguish the fire of love in you for people. May the God of heaven deliver you from the spirit of bitterness and anger because you cannot continue to live in that polluted spirit and expect to see God.

There is a way to live a Christian life for God to be with you. Be at peace with all men. Let this be a ‘lifestyle of’ rather than a ‘prayer into’ holiness. Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the lord; …. Heb 12:14
You cannot be at peace except by love.

Stand against bitterness, follow God and fulfill destiny. Apostle Paul refers to it as gall of bitterness; and just as gall is bitter when smeared over chicken so is bitterness in your spirit. Relate to God in spirit and in truth. You cannot connect nor relate with God when your heart is in bitterness. Access the spirit life by practically understanding the effects of living out of the love life. The Holy Spirit is the one who makes us holy and righteous and it is our duty to allow him to make us by opening our hearts to him and walking in the love of God.

God is love and those that live in love live in God and God in them. Every child of God must therefore be a child of love. From today you will begin to experience the glory of God.
