The three love of God the Father for the year 2020
The Love of GOD and The race he set before us
The Love essence of God’s Love
The fear of God is love
I read it this way
I John 2:15; Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any person loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
John 3:16; For God so loves the world that He gave his only begotten Son.
Jude 1:20-23; But beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I John 2:28 -29; Little children abide in Him; that when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.
If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of Him.
John 3:1-3; Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we shall be called the sons of God or daughters; therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.
Beloved, now are we the sons and daughters of God the Father, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.
And every man and woman that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.
Hebrews 12:1 -11; Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children,
My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him; for when the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son and daughter whom He receiveth.
If ye endure the chastening, God the Father dealeth with you as with sons and daughters; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
But if ye be without chastisement whereof all are partakers, then ye are bastards and not sons.
Furthermore, we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence; shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits and live?
For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous; nevertheless afterward it yielded the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
Romans 5:8; But God commandeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
I John 3:7-10,18 -24; Little children
And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which He hath given us.
Ephesians 2:4 -10; But God, who is rich in mercy
I John 4:7-11; Beloved, let us love one another
Deuteronomy 7:12 -26; And I will love thee
II Corinthians 9:6 -15; But this I say
John 16:25 -28, 31 -33; These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs;
John 17:20 -26; Neither prays I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me
I John 4:12 -16; No man hath seen God at any time.
If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us.
Hereby know we that we dwell in Him, and He in us, because He hath given us of His spirit.
I John 2:3 -11; And hereby we do know that we know Him if we keep His commandments. He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth, not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
But whoso keepeth His word; in him verily is the love of God perfected; hereby know we that we are in Him.
I John 2:12-29; I write unto you, fathers because ye have known Him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men because ye have overcome the wicked one.
I write unto you, little children because ye have known the Father, I have written unto you fathers because ye have known Him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one.
II Corinthians 13:13 -14; All the saints salute you, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
Hebrews 12: 1 - 2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The Fear of the Lord is love
I John 4:17-18 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; as he is, so are in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out fear; because of fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Job 28:28 And unto man he said, behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Deuteronomy 6:1-2 Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it; that 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 the days may be prolonged.
Deuteronomy 8:6 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and fear him.
II Kings 17:36-39 But the Lord, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great authority and a stretched out arm, he shall ye fear, and he shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice. And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandments, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods. And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods. But the Lord your God ye shall fear, and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies.
I Chronicles 16:29-30 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; bring an offering, and come before him; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Fear before him, all the earth; the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.
Psalm 33:8 Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
Daniel 6:26 I make a decree, That in every dominion of my6 kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel; for he is the living God, and steadfast forever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed and his dominion shall be even unto the end.
Luke 12:4-5 And I say unto you my friends, be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more than they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear; Fear him which after he hath killed, hath authority and power to cast into hell; yea I say unto you, fear him.
Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding has all they that do his commandments; his praise endureth forever.
Proverbs 14:26-27 In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence, and his children shall have a place of refuge. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
Isaiah 33:5-6 The Lord is exalted; for he dwelleth on high; he hath Zion with judgment and righteousness, and wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation; fear of the Lord is his treasure.
Jeremiah 46:28 Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the Lord, for I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee, but I will not make a full end of thee but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished.
Proverbs 3:25 Be not afraid of sudden fear neither of the desolation of the wicked when it cometh.
