LOVE/Let us keep in mind this is the most important quality (1 Peter 4:8)! This trait should be used with all other traits (1 Cor.13). Some have a hard time understanding how one can use rebuke with love. (i suggest the rebuke blog for the Documentation)! Christians are concerned for all. We are called to Grow in faith. Faith without fruits is dead (Jas.2:17, 20, 26; Heb.6:1 "move unto perfection"). 

* The Fear (reverence) of the Lord is the Beginning - Psalm 111:10 / Proverbs 1:7 / Proverbs 9:10/ 1 Sam.12:24/ In Covenant, This ("fear") matures into LOVE and an individual relationship with YHVH. Evidence:
* 1st John 4:18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

(One with G-D makes a majority! “Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself” -FDR)

2 Tim.1:7 - For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a soundmind.  
____________

Deut.6:2That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.

("fear" here is translated from  ירא yare H#3372- Revere, (reverance- fear and love/ respect),  fear. (to honor)

Deut.6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

________

1st John 4:16(:7-21)-And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.



Note: Pro. 1:7 & Job 28:28 (H#3374),.....-Fear taken back to original context would be to reverence.Deut.10:12( fear, to bow, to LOVE, to worship, To hold up above, to hold in high reguard)Jn.14:15/1st John5:3


As Christians we are never to condem another-As to say they have no hope of salvation-As to which the term fool means in Matt.5:22!We are to spread the message of salvation. Love overcomes all. His love forgives us of sin!


Rev. 3:19-As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Luke 6:27-38=Matt. 7:43-48/Rom.12:20&21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. /Matt.19:19/Eph. 6:21-24

Let us remember our methods of spreading the word can draw others to it or push them away (Matt.10:16)! Matt.5:44


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

 

* Anyone who shows Love to another has some understanding of what it is to be an instrument of God and apart of the oneness (Elohim). However one needs to Embrace YHVH and his mercy above all things. If you dont embrace the Passover sacrifice you are embraceing death.


* John 3:16 (King James Version)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.


* 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
1 Cor.3:16
All love comes from God, that doesn't take away from those who love us but rather adds to them!

* Deut.6:4-5 God is The Heart Knower- Acts 1:24/ Ps.44:21/ Proverbs 17:3/ Acts 15:8/ 1 Samuel 16:7/ 1 Chron.29:17/ 1 Chron.28:9/ Luke 16:15-17/ Ps.139:1-4/ Heb.4:12/ Mk.2:6-8 Matt.9:4/ Lk. 6:45/ Rev.2:23/ 1 Cor.4:5/ Proverbs 4:23/ Rom.2:16/ Is. 44:18/ Deut.8:2/ Deut.13:3/ 1 Kings 8:39/ Ps.17:3/ Proverbs12:20/ Ps.7:9-10/ Dan.2:30/ Ps.139:23/ 2 Chron.6:30/ Proverbs 12:23/ Lk. 16:15/ Rom. 2:16/ Proverbs 23:7/ Rom. 8:27






God wants our Love (Praise) / a personal relationship more than any thing else we could offer or achieve. Prov.21:3, 1 Sam.15:22, Hos.6:6,14:2; Is.1:11, Col.3:14, 1 Cor.13, 1 Pet.4:8, Deut.6:5 & Mk 12:30

*Rev.4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created(Rom.12:1) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service

Jer.9:23-24 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

 

Circumcision is of the heart. Rom. 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God./ Deut.10:16;30:6/ Jer.4:4/ Rom.2:25-29/ Jer.17:9-10/ Matt.5:8/ Jas.4:8 / Acts 2:37/ Col.2:10-11/ Jer. 31:33/ Jer.24:7/ 2 Cor.3:2/ Eph.3:17/ Eze.11:19

 

Beautiful Psalm 51:10,11,12,13,14,15

______________

 

1 John 3:14 (King James Version) 14We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth IN DEATH.

 

Eph.4:31-32 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

(Rom.2:4-8) Lk.6:45

Proverbs 15:14
The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledgeledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

1 John 3:20
For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things

Hosea 2:18 in Tanakh-  "And it shall come to pass on that day, says the Lord, you shall call [Me] Ishi, and you shall no longer call Me Baali." (2:16 in English KJV).

Rashi commentary- You should worship me out of love and not out of fear. Ishi is an expression of marriage and the love of one's youth. Baali an expression of mastership and fear. (Pesachim 87a/ Kethuboth 71b) Baali explained to mean like a wife in her father in laws house rather than in her fathers house. (same lesson documented in the beginning of blog)

Prov.8:17 (Tanakh) "I will love those who love me, and those who seek me eagerly will find me." /Rashi: "will find me": Heb. ימצאנני. There is an extra “nun,” denoting fifty. I will allow him to find the fifty gates of understanding. As stated by "Rabbi" Aaron in the name of "Rabbi" Nathan./ Love me relates back to his righteousness (which is Torah)./ ShavuothPentecost (50 days following Passover/ counting the omer)

(KJV) "I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me."

1 Jn.5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous

1 Tim.1:8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully

Matt.12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother

Jas.1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves

Rev.14:12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus

Jn.14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments

Matt.5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Rev.12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God,  and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Jn.15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love

1 Jn.2:3 ... And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments

Matt.7:22-24 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock

Jas 4:11  Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge

Rev.22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city

Biblical Love is often described as living according to the Law (Torah). 2 Jn.1:6/ 1 Jn.5:2,3/ Jn.15:10/ Jn.14:15,21/ Dan.9:4/ Ps.119:47,48,127/ Neh.1:5/ Josh. 22:5/ Deut. 5:10; 7:9; 11:1,13,22; 19:9; 30:16/ Ex.20:6.....

2 Tim.2:24-25 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

1 Pet.3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

Prov.22:24-25 Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.

Matt.10:32-34 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
(Against who? Those who reject Him) Righteous Judgement

Mk.3:5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

He isnt angry at his people and Does call them friends! Note how Jesus was even concerned about those who had hardened their hearts. (rebuke is done out of concern).

Jn.15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you

Anger isnt edifying. It leads to destruction. Yeshua (Jesus) came not to do his own will but the will of the Father (YHVH). Righteous indignation is far from the personal wrath of an individual. (In Matt 21 Jesus cleanses the temple out of devine judgement as well)

* 1 Cor.13:1/ *Rom 12:18

Gal.6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault (sin), ye which are spiritual (not carnal), restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

If you are struggleing with same fault you aren't qualified to restore someone with same fault.

Christainity is NOT being "nice". Nice at its roots means ignorant. Being nice towards those who want to kill u will get you killed. Again/ The LORD describes His chastisement as a way he shows us love, and tells us how rebuke is a Christain tactic.

 Word Origin & History

NICE

late 13c., "foolish, stupid, senseless," from O.Fr. nice "silly, foolish," from L. nescius "ignorant," lit. "not-knowing," from ne- "not" (see un-) + stem of scire "to know." "The sense development has been extraordinary, even for an adj." [Weekley] -- from "timid" (pre-1300);
