God's Sinless Love
This hub was inspired by a discovery made in my spirit and now my soul is being enlightened and embracing, establishing and providing the liberty to express what it impressed in my heart. Recently I was responding to some comments left on a hub I wrote entitled, Loving God with all of my mind. It can be viewed at http://mabelhenry.hubpages.com/hub/Loving-God-with-my-mind.
During the process of commenting, the song "Endless Love" came to my mind and subsequently following that thought came, love that is endless must first be sinless, for there to be endless possibilities of the joy eternal life promises. Sin will not be around any more in eternity. Yet God has given us a glimpse and allowed us to be partakers of His sinless love in the here and now.
There is still sin in the world and we live in a sin plagued world, but the greatest thing about being in this world and not of it, is having a sinless God and Savior. We are putting up our good fight of faith and overcoming and taking our dominion over sin's propensity, but inherent in that effort is struggle. Sin is war, but God's sinlessness is complete rest. I finally realize why His presence is so special. It is because we can rest from sin. Sin can't follow us or come in His presence, but we can, in and through the blood of our sinless Savior Jesus Christ. The blood of Jesus ushers us into the sinless presence of our Father, it protects us from any interaction with sin. Our blood washed spirits can go beyond the veil. The presence of God is awesome! In the presence of a sinless God, what do you expect to be your banner, but sinless love. You soak in it, you breathe it, it saturates your soul with freshness and newness that you would not otherwise know, but by the sinless Holy Spirit. You may as well get ready for a sinless eternity, but do occupy until He returns.
It is this panoramic, (unobstructed and wide view of the extensive area of love in all directions), which aides in the scope of sinless love; and how connecting with that aspect of God's nature in and through Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and the Word of God are the crucial imperatives right in front and before us.
God's love is sinless, meaning there is no sin resident in His love. For God so loved the world that He not only gave His only begotten Son, He gave us His sinless Son. Everything God gives is untainted and sinless and is given from the realm of holiness and purity. The all abundant God knew we could not reach His sinless love, or respond to it automatically and appropriately, therefore sinless love came down to earth in the incarnate flesh of Jesus Christ. While He was here on earth some personally got to witness sinless love in action. Healings of every kind did they see first hand. We on the other hand were not eye witnesses, but we are witnesses of His sinless love. Who is there amongst us believers that has not been a recipient of this grandiose love? We all have a story uniquely our own of how and when we met the risen Savior along life's journey. The blood of the Lamb and our testimony we cleave to for dear life. We have sown within us the incorruptible seed. The incorruptible seed has been planted within us by the Father, so that we can know His sinlessness, all sin is corruption, making this distinction is freedom indeed...
This discovery led me to contrast the love we as humans experience on different levels, and how they really do pale in comparison and can not compare or match the sinless love of God. God's love is the utopia and is a shelter for us. I understand how the Greek came up with Agape being the highest facet of love in the universe. It has been said, that it was in the Greek dictionary without a real meaning, until after Jesus Christ died, and rose from the dead. This is when the reality of God's sinless love became alive to their hearts. His love is where we are hidden as we dwell under the shadow of the Most High God.
The different types of love we know and are born through involved the acts of physical contact. God's sinless love is spiritual and will never involve the same elements found in natural or human love. The purpose of laboring the focal areas of natural/human love is to provide food for thought and distinction in order to contrast the diversity of love. The Spirit that fills us with God's love is sinless and has the power to purify the other kinds of love which are experienced
Here is what we must distinguish between: Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, the virgin birth denotes for us that a clean vessel would be needed which lined up with the Holy Spirit for the manifestation of this sinless birth. Virginity Is a detail which is omitted in society regarding reproduction. Man and woman are supposed to be virgins upon the consummation of the marital union and be untouched for the purpose of marrying and reproducing after their kind. Two people who are not virgins generally will reproduce after their kind until this lifestyle is interrupted and circumvented with counsels and principles which lead to higher ground and the higher life God created the union between man and women to conform into and operate from.
We as humans will only know lust disguised and masked as love until we meet up with the sinless God and His sinless Son and we are taught from a higher place how to experience God's sinless love. I am learning why God's love is really so powerful, it is because it is holy, clean, undefiled and sinless and it has no contaminates and toxins or impurities whatsoever. The aspects of love we experience are generally full of and founded upon sensuality, passions and pleasures that come from sin and the residues of impurities sin leaves behind.
God will never change His sinless nature for us to understand Him, we must change our sinful nature so that we can understand Him. God is immutable, He changes not and He is the same yesterday, today and forever more.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts" Isaiah 55:8.9.
Have you ever asked yourself how high in sinlessness? It is high above all atmospheres, environments, stratospheres, dimensions, territories, and realms. Sinless is Creator God's nature and the essence of who He is. After the fall the world could not comprehend sinlessness and veered towards the downward spiral of sinfulness. Sinlessness is eternal because time could no longer contain or fully accommodate the values it ordained. It is a high standard and ideal that we can't understand fully because we have sinned and fallen short of His glory. Have you ever wondered what you would be like without sin, what would you look like in reality? Absolutely Perfect! To have a sinless value system, what a wonder filled idea.
We on the other hand were born through sinners, and in sin did our mothers conceive us and sin was already in the world waiting to ensnare us. The challenge for us is loving God without sinfulness. How do we love a sinless God? The only avenue or path I see is through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, the acknowledgement of His shed blood and His righteousness and sinlessness. Utilizing the imputed righteousness we have been given through our faith. This righteousness and sinlessness is imputed and placed in our spirits for the purpose of communing with a holy and sinless God in our relationships with Him. God only has qualities to share with us that are sinless. When we understand this we will come into the knowledge of the truth of His sovereignty.
Can we love a sinless God? Yes, we can and we do love a sinless God because that is who you are loving when you love Him, perhaps it is done without the conscious awareness that He is the sinless God. God's sinlessness is a resting place. Sin is a mean and tiring state of discontentment. We all have a place we call home and as a general rule, we love to return home at the end of the day. God's sinless love is our brand new home, it is where we are abiding in Christ Jesus. God's love is a fragrance in an odor filled sinful world. I can comprehend where a rose and its fragrance comes from and how it is an expression of the beauty of excellence, yet we must enjoy the rose while we can because its fragrance and beauty are fleeting. Nevertheless the God who created the rose is not fleeting.
I imagine that in a sinless environment the flowers will not even be able to die, because there is no death. God's sinless love produces a death-free environment. Do you realize that we are going to be going to an eternal life where sin is not allowed and we will have the privilege of experientially living eternally without sin, with a Sinless God. This the hope that believing in our sinless Savior promises. Okay back to the here and now. Wow! I almost forgot to come back, what a delightful destiny. In occupying until He returns lies discoveries of who our God is and the character He possesses as we strive to understand Him better.
"Then Jesus said unto them, I am the door of the sheep". A door is an entrance that leads somewhere, in this case, He is the door the sheep use to enter in the presence of the Father. We can't enter the presence of God without the mention of Jesus Christ. It is Christ in us the hope of glory and Jesus always delights the Father , Why? He is sinless and the Father is always well pleased with Him. We can only delight Him through Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. Sin is a thief and a robber and has and can rob us each and every time we attempt to enter the door without Jesus Christ. Grace is the pillow we have been given to rest our lives upon and to enter the Father's presence, Grace is a gift we should have unwrapped and are appreciating and utilizing every step of the way. Knowing that it is through grace that we are saved by faith. Grace is to the believer a treasure capable of granting pardon from sin, so that we can daily commune with a sinless Godhead.
Have you ever thought of the sinlessness of God before? He has never and shall never commit a sin. We on the other hand have committed sin and needed an advocate through this life to the very end. I am pondering through this article a great and magnificent aspect of God's character and reckoning is taking place in me as to whom I am receiving this great love from, His love is sinless. I know you have heard the song, "Endless Love" how can love be endless that is not sinless. This hub is about our Sinless God. All of the different kinds of loves; passion, friendship, family. All of these have a sinful element that God's love will never have. All these types of love were fashioned to operate under complete sinlessness. The fall capsized that reality. Yet the Father's sinlessness continues to navigate us towards a love so great that you must be given spiritual discernment to truly see the magnitude of His pure love.
In retrospect and presently, I don't know about you but I am happy that God's love doesn't include fornications, adulteries, homosexualities, pedophilia, and nothing to do with sex on any level. Yet men and women that practice these things believe this is love and not merely lust masked as love. It was enough to live through these diversions as a sinner, but as a saint things have changed and continue to change.
God's love is what my life needed after a past of promiscuous behaviors. It is a resting place to believe in a sexless and sinless God. God created the institution of marriage for all passion to reside under and He created it with His own terms for the ultimate success of the union. Sex has made its way out of Pandora's box and is reeking havoc, and leaking destruction upon all of society to accept its pernicious life style.
God created exclusivity for the marriage structure and that is an ideal liken to a star; because men and women do not care to establish a relationship on God's terms doesn't make their decision a righteous one. God's love is what taught me that I could have a changed value system, with Him at the core of establishing morals, and ethics that really are tangible and worth grasping and holding on to.
Jesus Christ taught me how to be and conduct myself as a dignified lady and woman and how to respect myself. The Word of God counsels me and provides the instruction to persevere. The Holy Spirit directs my paths to what is needed to accomplish fulfilling my purpose as a woman, as well as a child of the living God. We are touching abundance and wealthy living when we ensue and search for the sinless love and not sinful lust. Hatred of our own bodies produces lust. Fornication is a sin against our own flesh and the fulfillment of lust. Lust when it is conceives brings forth death. Death that dulls our hearing what God says about sin.
We weren't taught the way God would have had us to know. We need God's sinlessness and we should desire and want it just as much. We accept the fact that the flesh is waiting final redemption. All I can visualize is sinless eternity. I don't know what to expect, but I know that I know, I can expect sinlessness and no sin around or to be found. This is really what the promise of eternal life is speaking to me, no more sin not even for me. I will become an absolute new sinless creature. Even the environment will change to a residence of no sin. Whereas in the earth sin takes place every second of the day, not so in our eternal home. I treasure the sinless love of God it is the portal to holiness.
Just think for a minute, what does God's love speak to your heart? Can you discern and extract the sinlessness of the love you receive every single day. My struggle is responding to His sinless love, how do I ascend to such a great height without being raised by the sinless Son who loved me and gave His life for me to be able to touch heaven in prayer and praise and with the understanding of where I am going every day and night in and through the power of prayer. I am going to the throne of grace to have audience with a pure and sinless God. We are truly traveling from glory to glory, and faith to faith in our individual walks with God. If it is a journey then we travel right? We don't need a car, plane, train or rocket to leave the earth, all we need is a clean heart and up, up, and away we go into the spirit to pray. Hallelujah!
The Apostle Paul asked this question in Romans 8:35, Who can separate us from the love of Christ? No one can unless you grant them permission, not even sin can separate us from His sinless love. The Apostle continues his inquisition and to delve deeper into his questioning describing all the things which seek our demise but are all unsuccessful. He asked, shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? He then declared in the verses following, as it is written, for thy sake we are killed all the day long: we accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. The Apostle declares that he is persuaded and so should we be persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Paul asserted that he was persuaded, you and I must assert our persuasion as well individually and personally. When we hear the voice of God we are hearing a sinless voice. Sin has to bow and retreat because Jesus has absolute dominion over sin and He has given us His dominion because we lost our own at the fall. God had given Adam a dominion mandate that sin cancelled, but bless the Father of glory, that the Lord Jesus Christ gives us dominion through His shed blood and His name.
I bow to Your sinless love I ask that You would synchronize my heart to heavens rhythms and bring me into the continual flow of understanding and revelation knowledge of the many depths of Your unchanging and unconditional sinless love. Let Your sinless love pour down, let it rain, as Your love reigns supreme!
