Scripture: 1 John 4:13-16
Again we find, in verse 16, the statement that God is love. We know that it is in the context of Jesus, Son of God and Savior. We can testify to that and speak to that issue. We can also agree that if there was ever a time for a house-cleaning, it is now! Just like Jesus cleaned the temple, He needs to come into our nation’s capitol and clean house of antichrist evil! We need a house-cleaning. Not a minor house-cleaning, but a major one. If all we ever do is “turn-the-other-cheek” and pray for our enemies, the enemy consistently advances and prevails because we are misapplying the love of God. There is a layer of God’s love that arrests evil and there is another layer that terminates it. Based on circumstance and the leading of the Spirit, instead of automatically turning the other cheek and facilitating the evil, we may be led to pray for termination! But because we only know and are established in the initial layers, we let the enemy advance rather than allowing the Spirit to lead us in arresting his progress. The result is destruction and devastation. It is time we grew up and expanded our definition of love.
