1 Cor 13:5- God‘s love will never seek it’s own . In other words, the pure love of God has no hidden agenda. It will NEVER appear outwardly as one thing; but inwardly it is another thing . It cannot ever seek something for itself! It can only find satisfaction as it seeks the wealth of another. 1 Cor 10:24- „Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth.„ . It is only complete when it affects other lives! There is a tremendous difference between human love and the pure love of God.
Human love must try to love
Divine love never tries to do what it always manifests
Human love is a very cheap imitation, divine love is the absolute real !
Human love has its source in flesh or the nature of Adam and divine love
has its source in the Nature of Christ
Human love is stuck in doing. It has to do with the intention of proving to others that this is really love!
Divine love dwells in the very center of the Father’s heart and in that state of being - it can release the Father’s love at any moment of the day. It never seeks to prove its reality! It simply is!!
Human love has appearance without substance . Divine love has appearance with great substance!
Hosea the Prophet and the Prostitute
God had a prophet, his name was Hosea. and he wanted him to illustrate God's love for His people. He wanted his prophet to illustrate who He was as God. Hosea 3:1,2.
3 Then the Lord said to me, “Go again, love a woman who is loved by a lover[a] and is committing adultery, just like the love of the Lord for the children of Israel, who look to other gods and love the raisin cakes of the pagans.”
2 So I bought her for myself for fifteen shekels of silver, and one and one-half homers of barley. 3 And I said to her, “You shall stay with me many days; you shall not play the harlot, nor shall you have a man—so, too, will I be toward you.”
I want you to marry a harlot, thats what God told him. I want you to marry a harlot, why? Because I want you to demonstrate my love. Hosea was a prophet, and his job was to illustrate and to demonstrate the love of God, so he goes and marries a prostitute. and he becomes her husband, and then he tells her, now you needs to stay at home, but she doesn't. She goes off an then she goes off, and then one day she lost everything. just everything, and then, God tells him to go to this square, it was an auction market, this prostitute was being auctioned. She had nothing, just nothing. Then God said, now buy her back. Buy her back, This is the love of God. This is not human love, God's love love's his enemies as much as his friends. Jesus says, you can love your friends, but my love, love's your enemies. There's no comparison. God over and over again wants to illustrate what His love is like! You go into sin and into sin, and the love of God keeps going after you, it doesn't forget about you. One time Peter says, how many times do we forgive them Lord? Seven? That's probably how so many of us have been taught. You get to a point and then you say "that's enough", you reached your limit; not with God's love. Not with
God's real love.
Then Jesus tells the story of the prodigal son, and that son was a real son, many of God's children are real son's and daughters, he was a real son, and he lost everything he had, in a short time, and then there was a famine in the land, and now he finds himself with pigs, and he discovers one thing, that the pigs are eating better than he is. Thats the lowest place you could get, but the pigs were eating better than him, and then he starts to think about his father, and what his fathers house is like, and suddenly his heart is being drawn to go home, supernaturally, he's being drawn to go back to the Father, this is the whole world, they've gone away from the Father, they've left his house, and the Holy Spirit's drawing them, to come back. unfortunately, a lot of times they have to go into great, great need, where they lose everything and they see the light, God doesn't want that; but whatever it takes to have his children back home, whatever it takes. to have his children back home. that's the real God, that's our real Father. He loves us so much, but the devil says, "He's angry, No, you're angry, God's not angry, He loves you. He loves you, He cares about you. Nobody will ever care about us, as God will care about us. nobody ever. But we associate God's love with human love. Then we remember what a human did with their love; how they disappointed us, how they hurt us. Then we start to think, well, God's like that!? He's not like that, He's not like that. He's nothing like that. He's filled with perfect love.
