Loving God is to keep His Commandments

Richard Joseph


Exodus 20:3, 5, 6, Thou shalt have no other God’s before me.  (And serve them – Consider here the supposed Christians serving defending preaching and teaching and representing of Animals, Whales, Dolphins, Trees, Earth these are all idolatry. Also think here about the supposed Christians serving defending preaching teachings and representing sin evil and perversion Homosexuality, Atheism, Communism, Socialism, Capitalism, Islam and other religions. All of these the wrath of God shall be against.) – For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God visiting the iniquity of the fathers (God lets these men and woman go their way and fully defile themselves but the price of their sins and evil deeds fall on those of their household unto their great grandchildren) upon the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me.   And shewing mercy (However that is broken for those who turn love serve and obey the Lord) unto thousands of them that love Me and keep My commandments. 


Mark 7:8-9 For laying aside the commandment of God ye hold the tradition of men – (Knowing) full well ye reject the commandment of God that ye may keep your own tradition --. 


John 12:48-50 He that rejecteth me (Believeth not) and receiveth not (Obeyeth not) My words hath one that judgeth him, the word that I have spoken the same shall judge him in the last day. For I have not spoken of myself but the Father which sent me He game me a commandment what I should say and what I shall speak. And I know that His commandment(s) is life everlasting (God’s Commandments contain life and health, only the obedient that love and fear God can partake of their hidden springs of life and health) whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto Me so I speak.


This is an extremely serious verse as to one’s salvation

John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give unto you that ye love one another. As I have loved you that ye also love one another. (Paul quotes these words for husbands to so love their wives as Christ loves His disciples) By this (This shall be a sign unto the unsaved) shall all men know that ye are my disciples if ye have love one to another. (When such love is in a household the unsaved see it)


All who proclaim themselves as Christians that have not this deep abiding love for one another shall be rejected of God as liars and workers of iniquity on the last day.


If this is not in your household between husband and wife, if this is not in your church between one another, if this is not in your life between yourself and other believers not from your fold – ye have not His love and therefore are not of Him.


Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments and shall teach men so he shall be called least (By those) in the kingdom of heaven (We live today in a race to the bottom as preachers and teachers are filled with disobedience and even open defiance of the words and commandments of Jesus Christ and the Apostles and teach their disciples to do so. Elsewhere we find that this being called least is not the economy ticket into heaven as believed, but rather it is being cast out to where their will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth) but whosoever shall do and teach them the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 


John 14:15 If you love Me keep my commandments.


One of the greatest promises of Jesus Christ

John 14:21 He that hath My commandments and keepeth them shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him and (I) will manifest myself to him.


Many Christians wonder why they lack in the manifestations of Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost in their spiritual walk much less their day to day life? The answer to this is contained in this single verse.


First you can not have Christ’s words and commandments if you have never read them.  Read the bible cover to cover. 


Secondly if you do not love read and meditate day and night on God’s word you will not have Christ’s words and commandments dwelling in your heart.


Thirdly if you are so immersed in the words and commandments of Jesus Christ and obey them not you are not keeping them.


To keep means to guard, protect and treasure. 


So that if you are immersed in the words and commandments of Jesus Christ in your spiritual life and daily life, and keeping protecting treasuring and obeying His words and commandments Jesus and the Holy Ghost will manifest themselves not only in your spiritual life but in your daily life as well so much so that it will be seen of men that He is indeed with you.


John 15:10 If ye keep My commandments ye shall abide in My love (Christ’s ever present protection and covering) even as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.


John 15:12 If ye keep my commandments ye shall abide in My love --.


Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do His commandments that they might have right to the tree of life. And may enter in through the gates into the city.


John 15:7 If ye abide in Me and My words (His words and His commandments are indivisible, they are one and the same) abide in you,  (It has become so exceedingly rare that any abide in Christ and His words so abide in them after this manner) ye shall ask what ye will and it shall be done unto you. (In this you will not ask seek or desire anything that is not in accordance with His will and purposes) 


James 4:3 Ye ask and receive not because ye ask amiss. (Ye ask) that ye may consume it upon your lusts. (To partake of the riches and the delicacies of this world)


This is the corrupt cry of the damned in those who partake of the Prosperity Gospel, and the Hyper-Faith Message. In these people there can not be found any such abiding in Christ nor His words abiding in them, because they have no time and no interest in any such thing.  As their interests in Christ only go as far as earthly wealth building, the amassing of houses and lands, and heaping unto themselves the things of this world.
