family teaching #6: love
part 1  
GOD's agape or perfect love demands we obey


26 "Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse:
27 "The blessing, if you obey the commandments of the LORD your GOD which I command you today;
28 "And  the   curse,  if   you   do  not   obey the commandments of the LORD your GOD, but turn aside from the way which I command you today.


36 "Teacher,   which    the   great commandment in the law?"
37 Jesus said to him, "'You shall love the LORD your GOD with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind."
38 "This   is   first    and   great commandment.
39 "And second like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'
40 "On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets."


17 Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life.


9 "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
10 "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
11 "These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and your joy may be full.
12 "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
14 "You are My friends if you do whatever I command you."



Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
2 And though I have prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so  that  I  could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love suffers long, is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 Does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6 Does not rejoice iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether prophecies, they will fail; whether tongues, they will cease; whether knowledge, it will vanish away.
9 For  we  know  in   part  and  we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these, love.


1Jn2...5 whoever keeps His word, truly the love of GOD is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.


8 Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.
9 For the commandments, "You shall not commit adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not steal," "You shall not bear false witness," "You shall not covet," and if any other commandment, are summed up in this saying, namely, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love (is) the fulfillment of the law.


14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, in this: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."


that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all the saints, the width and length and depth and height -
19 To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge.


11 Beloved, if GOD so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
12 No one has seen GOD at any time. If we love one another, GOD abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.
13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
16 And we have known and believed the love that GOD has for us. GOD is love, and he who abides in love abides in GOD, and GOD in him.
17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
19 We love Him because He first loved us.
20 If someone says, "I love GOD," and hates his brother, he is a liar, for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love GOD whom he has not seen?
21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves GOD love his brother also.

family teaching #6: love
Part 2
GOD is love, and calls all mankind to express His holy, pure nature,
but lost, fallen man can never mirror His qualities, as continue to sin.
GOD in moral love sent Christ to redeem all creation Jn3:16 Rom5,
and a few who believe and obey His voice grow into true redemption.
GOD in moral love offers all mankind a chance to redeem its soul from sin,
but most refuse His grace, love, power, ever cursed into hell then outer dark.
GOD grows a few into affectionate, agape, perfect love, to express Him 1Jn2:6,
copying Christ to truly abide in His love Jn10:17;15:9-14, most copy Esau Rom9:13.
GOD in affectionate love empowers His chosen to overcomer level 1Jn3:9; 5:4,
copying Christ to love and forgive thru great torture, so enduring Mk13:13.
GOD in affectionate love sends His chosen to suffer or copy Christ 2Cor4:11-7:1,
that others join Him eternally Rev2;3; 20:4,6, so very few willingly comply.
GOD grows a handful into agapetos, beloved or His image, as Moses and Paul,
thru a tripling of their initial purging, testing (or Job Acts14:22 x3), Eph3:19b; 4:13d.
GOD's 3part church, 4 levels

Eph3..16 That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all the saints what the width and length and depth and height -
19 To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of GOD.

Eph4..13 Till we all come to the unity of the faith,.. and of the knowledge of the Son of GOD,.. to a perfect man,.. to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
Heb8..2 A Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the LORD erected, and not man.
Heb9..3 And behind the second veil, the part of the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of All,
4 Which had the golden censer and the ark of the covenant.

Heb10..19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,
20 By a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, His flesh,
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

GOD grows His church: from babes to children,
from children to young men or holy in Christ,
then a handful into His image Rom8:29 1Cor4:15.
GOD's 3rd part Zech13:9 is His grain, seed, holy,
Rom12:1 Phil3 1Pet2:5,9 1Cor1:30 1Jn3:6,
His true temple 1Cor3:16,17; 6 Eph2; 4:24; 5:27 now.
GOD's covenant or heavenly promise is in Christ,
if we continue to be sealed 2Cor1:20-22; 3:6; 5:5,
if we copy Abraham Rom4:12,16 Gal3 Jam1:12 now.
GOD's Holiest is thru His fire, His blood 1Jn1:7,
His water Jn3:5 Ps66:8-12 Rom6 Tit3:5 1Pet3:21,
all a Job33 experience and a work of obedient faith.

[true redemption] [ever cursed] [His image]


by Joseph M. Stowell

President, Moody Bible Institute

Better Than We Deserve,   April '92


GOD's holy word proves this teaching is fallacious; few believers see life, redemption etc., most mere mouth, happy in sin + death.
So MBI is Gal1:8,9 2Pet2:14 1Jn2:18,19.


       Testimony meetings can be discouraging events for many of us, who are just common folk, going through good times as well as bad, seldom seeing GOD's hand moving in dramatic ways. Compared to the spectacular accounts of the LORD's intervening power that we sometimes hear or read, our own lives seem rather drab and ordinary.
       What makes those testimonies so discouraging is that they raise serious questions in our minds. Does GOD care for us as much as He cares for those who have such stellar stories? Is there something wrong with us, something that disqualifies us as miracle material?
       Sometimes our discouragement deepens as we read the stories of great heroes of the faith. We find GOD leading Moses and the children of Israel through the Red Sea, sending them manna, giving them front row seats to watch the collapsing walls of Jericho. We see Him sending a great revival to Nineveh. We hear of the dramatic resurrection of Lazarus and of the other-world experiences of the apostle Paul in the third heaven.
       Our experiences seem dull by comparison, and we end up wondering why we don't see similar evidence of GOD's dramatic work in our lives. It's not necessarily that we lack prayer or personal purity or faith. We pray earnestly for GOD to work, we seek to keep our lives pure before Him, and we truly believe He could do in us and through us whatever He desires. Yet we rarely see Him operate in extraordinary ways.
       Before the cumulative effect of all this puts our hearts in the ditch, we need to remind ourselves of an important mathematical fact. When we add up GOD's dramatic interventions recorded in the Old Testament and divide them into the number of years in Old Testament history, the net result shows that GOD rarely intervened in dramatic ways. Only in a few, unique moments did His eternal purposes demand a supernatural interruption in the ordinary flow of events.
       In addition, we need to remind ourselves of GOD's regular, quiet, yet supernatural, work in our lives. He, without our notice, sovereignly blocks that which would be too heavy to bear (1 Cor. 10: 13). He gives us the grace to endure difficulty, to remain positive in negative times, to show forgiveness and joy instead of bitterness. I think of friends like David Ring, who, despite cerebral palsy, is a dedicated and fruitful evangelist. Or Joni Eareckson Tada, who though paralyzed, radiates the love of Christ.
[CCCInc. Note: [see Joni Eareckson Tada: 1] [ 2 ]


       Our LORD not only works through relief or release, but sometimes His greater grace is given to make us strong in weakness (2 Cor. 12:9, 10).
[CCCInc. Note: GOD says we must qualify, Rom4:12,16 "walk as Abraham" to grow into "this grace" Rom5:2]

       Even if there were nothing else, we must never forget that all of us who know Him are walking displays of the most spectacular, supernatural event in history - the transforming power of the Cross of Christ.
[CCCInc. Note: GOD's word says very few truly "know" Him 1Jn2:3; 3:6,24; 5:20]

       It's the touch of redemption on our lives that is the most spectacular miracle of all. Hell's been canceled and heaven guaranteed. Once under the judgment of GOD, now we have His Holy Spirit living in us, guiding, reorienting, and enabling us daily. Old things have passed away, and all things have become new (2 Cor. 5:17).
[CCCInc. Note: GOD's word never says hell is canceled, MBI lies. GOD says His Spirit is the guarantee. [see Stowell part 3]. Stowell confirmed in '97 that he has never experienced the Spirit, [see Stowell part 1].

       Every believer, no matter how "ordinary, " carries the dramatic reality of eternal life and all its abundant privileges (John 10: 10).

[CCCInc. Note: Every believer who lives 1Jn2:6; 3:6,9.]

       If GOD never does anything more than redeem us, He has already done far more than we deserve. That one act gives us enough to be grateful for every day of our lives. We have far more than even the children of Israel, whose Red Sea experience cannot compare to our redemption through Christ's blood.
       Recently a friend asked me how I was doing. "Better than I deserve," was my reply. To which he said, "Oh, no. You deserve a lot." But in reality the only thing I deserve is hell. Considering who I am in light of a holy and just GOD, heaven is an absolute impossibility - except for the gracious gift of Christ's redemption. I'm reminded of the old Puritan who had been imprisoned for his faith. When his daily ration of stale bread and water arrived, he gladly exclaimed, "All of this and heaven, too!"
       I received a note from a Moody grad who at 83 years of age had obviously learned to recognize the hand of GOD on his life. After cataloging his blessings and burdens since leaving Moody, he concluded, "I'm 83 years old - walk with two canes. Been everywhere but heaven. Ready to go anytime. Have only one eye - see you there!"
[CCCInc. Note: Heaven is for GOD's elect living 1Jn2:6; 3:6,9]

       Been everywhere but heaven ... see you there! Who could ask for more?
So MBI teaching is 100% contrary to GOD's full word; no sin abides in GOD, or in His kingdom, or in Heaven ever.

Betrayal in the Church,   April '92

       The year was 1939 and the Spanish Civil War was almost over. Just outside Madrid, the rebel general Mola was ready to begin his attack. Someone asked which of his four columns of troops would be the first to enter the city. "The fifth," he responded. His answer became world famous. The general's most important column was a band of rebel sympathizers inside the city. They were already behind the Loyalist lines helping him. Since then, the term fifth column has been used worldwide. It describes traitors, those who assist the enemy from within.
       Betrayal is an ugly business, and yet it is common throughout history. Down through the centuries even the church has had its traitors. Some professing the Christian faith have attacked Scripture, denied Bible doctrine, and sown division. The Bible uses the word apostasy to talk about opposition from within. Apostasy is opposition to the Christian faith from people who once professed the faith and may still call themselves believers, but who have become its enemies. Apostasy has left its sorry wake in every generation. The Bible tells us that it will run its course and will ultimately disappear forever under GOD's eternal judgment.
       The Greek term from which we derive apostasy means "a falling away." In New Testament times, to apostatize meant to desert a station or post. By apostasy, professing Christians say to the church and to the world, "The things the Bible teaches aren't what they seem to be. This truth is not a truth." The attack comes not from enemies outside the faith, but from within, from those who claim to be believers. Apostates are the fifth column inside the church. The New Testament Book of Jude tells us in verse 4 that they have crept into the church by deceit.
       We might ask, "Were these really true believers?" John says they were not. We find his answer in I John 2. "They went out from us," he writes in verse 19, "but they did not really belong to us." And then he adds, "If they had belonged to us [if they had been bona fide believers], they would have remained with us."
       In the church's early years, apostasy was already rearing its ugly head. In the year A.D. 85, the aged apostle John wrote, "Even now many antichrists have come" (1 John 2:18). The Book of Jude was written because apostasy had already appeared. Other books, such as Colossians, were written because of this same need.

       In more recent years, the church has had to contend with liberalism and neo-orthodoxy. And not too many years ago, apostates even claimed that GOD was dead. In our day, some once-great denominations have been overwhelmed by apostasy. Some Christian colleges and seminaries have been infiltrated by professors who deny or water down the Bible as the Word of GOD. Thousands of well-intentioned people have graduated from these schools and then set out to preach without confidence in the gospel message. As a result, some Christians in the pews have been spiritually starved, misled, and blinded by unbelief. Like a mighty whirlwind, apostasy sweeps on, taking its toll. Yet there are at least four things we can do to combat apostasy.
1. Recognize it. Many Christians do not see or hear the signs of apostasy. An alarm should sound in our minds and hearts when we hear or read a message that says the Bible is not the Word of GOD. We should be alert to catch the slightest whisper that suggests there is a way to eternal life other than through Jesus Christ.
[CCCInc. Note: MBI does not teach true belief and true obedience according to GOD's holy and inerrant word. GOD's full truth is contradicted by MBI. Mat12:31]
2. Resist wrong teaching. If you find an error, do something. Raise a firm, yet gracious question, and warn others if error does exist.
[CCCInc. Note: GOD, from '87 till now, had us write countless letters to MBI, but disbelieved, discarded, disregarded.]
Jude exhorts us to "contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints" (v. 3.) We have a responsibility to see that the faith given to us is not altered as we pass it to others.
3. Refuse to assist apostasy. In his second letter, John proclaims this burning warning: "If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take him into your house or welcome him. Anyone who welcomes him shares in his wicked work" (vv. 10, 11.)
[CCCInc. Note: A self condemning statement due to MBI Betrayal in the Church.]
4. Renew your love. The Bible challenges us to renew our love for Jesus Christ. Jude closes his letter on apostasy with a call to "keep yourselves in GOD's love" (v. 21.) Continual renewal in GOD's love is the key to confronting apostasy.
[CCCInc. Note: MBI has no concept of loving GOD.]

Dear Dudley,
Feb '98 Part 3
GOD's call to love Him
GOD, from Deut5, clearly calls us to love Him (and obey Him) to receive mercy
repeated in Deut6:5; 7; 10; 11; 13; 19; 30 till Lk10:27, but very few obey His call.
GOD is clear, "if you love Me, [you will] keep My commandments" Jn14:15, so sin is really hating Him,
as "sin is lawlessness" or disobeying the law 1Jn3:4, and disobeying Him brings wrath and death.
GOD clearly expects us to prove we love Him, as did Jesus, sent to die for us Phil2,
which completed the sacrificial covenant established when testing Abraham's love Gen22 Heb11.
GOD clearly equates our degree of obedience to Him with our degree of loving Him.
GOD's call to share His truth
GOD, from Ex to Rev, established His written word, literally breathed or dictated 2Tim3:16,17,
but the Spirit of truth Jn14:17-26; 16:13 is rarely believed, lived, shared at Jam2:23 level.
GOD the Christ is all, pure truth, partially known and shared by Eph3:17a; 4:13b 1Jn2:27 level,
fully known and shared by 2Pet1:4,11,12 1Jn3:6 level, as sin cannot truly know or share Him.
GOD, in Jn21, commands His chosen (seeing, knowing, eating), or Jn15:16 level, living 2Cor4:11-7:1
to fully feed (share) all truth, that His flock or family grow into Eph4:15 true sheep Jn10 + 15.
GOD's pure truth sets His true children free, no more sin, no longer bound Gal3; 4; 5 1Jn5.
GOD's hard conditions
GOD's word in Deut5 is rarely believed and lived, so: "visiting iniquity...who hate Me,
but mercy...who love Me and keep My commandments" 5:9,10.
GOD, in Deut11, repeats His warning and condition, "blessing, if you obey..GOD..curse
if you do not obey the commandments of the LORD your GOD" 11:26-28.
GOD in flesh, Jesus, confirms the 1st + great command, "love the LORD your GOD" Mat22:37-40,
but the Judas church denies the law, even teaches against the law.
GOD repeats His command, "If you love Me, [you will] keep My commandments" Jn14:15.

GOD the Spirit must be obeyed just to be born again 1Pet1:22 "obey..thru the Spirit"
into 1:23 "having been born again," but the Judas church says all confessors are
GOD the Spirit must be obeyed to remain Jn3:3, dimly seeing Jn14:19,21 1Cor12:7;
but most initial b.a. believers never truly obey, so continue as lukewarm or depart
His calling.
GOD the Spirit must be obeyed to hear, to know, to learn at the child level Jn14
1Jn2; 3:7,8,10; yet to grow Eph4:15, yet to enter Acts14:22, yet to walk
1Jn1:7; 2:6, yet to overcome 1Jn5:4 Rev2; 3.
GOD the Spirit must be obeyed for life Mat19:17, for soul salvation Mat16:26 Job33
1Pet1:7,9 Phil2:12 Heb5:9, as even b.a. believers are only spirit saved, naked,
cast into outer darkness.
GOD the Spirit must be obeyed to be loved personally; Jn14:21,23 qualify the
child level, Jn15:10 qualifies the young man level, yet the Judas church says
He loves all personally.
GOD the Spirit must be obeyed to die to our will, to be freed from sin, to be led
Rom6; 8, then to abide 1Cor1:30; 12:12-28a 1Jn3:6, now born of GOD Jn1:13 1Jn3:9; 5
or full rebirth.
GOD the Spirit must be obeyed thru more purging Jn15:2 Heb12:4-13 till a handful
attain apostle or father or son level, His beloved, as Moses and Paul, His image
Rom8:29 Eph3:19b; 4:13d.

GOD's truth and current heresy
GOD's clear, simple, post Acts1:8; 2 message was intact, believed, lived by
the early disciples, but many heresies later denied the basic reason for
Jesus... defeat satan so we may follow, yet very few believe the power
available thru faith to overcome satan, self, sin... GOD's work if we obey
thru purging in fire.
GOD's clear, simple word 
"believing into
"grow up into" 
is proven,
qualified, supported by 100's of O.T. and N.T. scriptures but current
heresy declares mere confession/ritual baptism secures eternal life
in Christ... a total absence of obedience, love, faith... essential for
justification, righteousness, soul salvation, sanctification,
transformation, union.
GOD's clear, simple word 
"body of sin..destroyed, 
free from sin, dead to sin"
is Mat1:21, He delivers, remits but current heresy declares man
will not cease... so denying, rejecting, unbelieving GOD's grace, love, power
towards diligent, faithful, proved elect of GOD refusing satan, self, sin
in good conscience, walking after the Spirit in Christ.
GOD's clear, simple word 
Ezek   Rom
"sin is death, 
Jn3   Eph5   2Thes   1Pet
wrath upon disobedience, 
Rev   Rom8
is death" includes all believers Deut11 Rom1:18 but current heresy
declares all go to heaven/soul is immortal/GOD is love, all merciful...
so Jer23 Ezek34 Acts20:29 1Jn2:18... as heaven is for GOD's elect,
others Mat10:28 1Cor3:15; 5:5 naked, mere spirit saved, cast into darkness
Ps1:5 1Pet4:18 Mat7:21 Heb5:9; 12:15.

GOD alone established Willow Creek, Ps127:1, for His global plan.
GOD alone established a "seeker" type ministry for baby believers.
GOD intends to repeat Acts2 thru willing believers seeking His power.

Apr '98
GOD's message above has been rejected for 3 years by Hybels + WCCC,
but His grace continues for 12 months, for a final 10yr test, Mar '99.
GOD planted WCCC for His purposes, to fulfill His global plan of a family
truly seeking Christ and His Spirit power for soul salvation.
GOD's love for us demands He supply His chosen servant-leaders, as
He promised Jer23:4, as He literally reigns Mat2:6 Lk1:33, others Lk19:27.
GOD's love equally demands judgement + wrath against any unrepentant sin,
but WCCC currently disbelieves basic Bible truth, so cursed Gal:8,9.

GOD's warning, Heb6
GOD's holy inerrant word is disbelieved and rejected by mere mouth
and most anointed 2Cor4:3,4 2Thes2:12.
GOD's hard warning to all in "light" Jn8:12; 12:35,36 Job33:28,30 Eph5:8-14
2Cor4:6; 6:14 1Jn1:5-7 clearly abide Col1:12,13 2Pet1:4,11 1Jn2:6; 3:6...
yet satan teaches Heb6:4 not to Christians, 100% contrary to above word of GOD
and following evidence.
...6:4 en-light-ened qualifies His saints (not sinners) sanctified by faith
Acts26:18 if in Him 1Cor1:30.
...6:4 tasted heavenly gift qualifies Acts2:38 Rom6:23b; 14:17 Eph1:3; 2:6,8; 3:10
Phil3:20 Heb12:22,23 1Pet2:9.
...6:4 partakers qualifies fellowship, sealed (not mere indwelling or filling
1Cor12:3,7) 2Cor1:20-22; 6:14 Eph1:13; 3:6; 4:30 Col1:12 2Tim2:19 Heb2:11; 3:1,14.
GOD's holy inerrant word clearly qualifies His saints (not mouth or anointed)
in Heb10:19-22 (9:3) His 3rd part.
GOD's hard warning in Heb10:26-31 also qualifies blood Rom3:25 1Jn1:7,
covenant Gal3:17, His people Zech13:9 Mt1:21...
yet satan teaches all believers stand, 100% contrary to Ps1:5 Mal3:2 Jn15:6
1Jn3:6 Zech14 Mat25 Rom11:16-22 1Cor9:16,27 Mat24 1Pet4:17,18 2Thes2:3-12.

Loving GOD is to obey Him, as the Son 1Jn2:6 and loving others
is ministering ALL His truth, Eph4:15.
GOD called Bill Hybels, but be never entered into Christ,
so Hybels was never ordained by GOD, 1Jn3:8,10.

family teaching #6: love
Part 3

Jn21..Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?" He said to Him, "Yes, LORD; You know that I love You." He said to Him, "Feed My lambs."
16 He said to him again a second time, "Simon, of Jonah, do you love Me?" He said to Him, "Yes, LORD; You know that I love You." He said to him, "Tend My sheep."
17 He said to him the third time, "Simon, of Jonah, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, "Do you love Me?" And he said to Him, "LORD, You know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him, "Feed My sheep."

GOD in Jn21 is clear, He challenged Peter to prove his love, by "feeding His sheep," meaning,
teaching "all things" Mat28:20, which is rare in the current church Acts20:29,30.
GOD's full, hard gospel is rarely taught because very few love Him 1st and deeply
enough to risk offending the vast sinful church, witness Hybels Jn12:43 Jam4:4.
GOD's full, hard gospel is shared by His chosen, copying Christ in death Jn10:17; 15:10,
proving they love Him, even to death Rev6:9-11; 11:3-7, in constant joy and praise.
GOD in Ezek33 warns us to share all things, as Paul in Acts20:17-35 Eph4:15 Col1:28,29.

Jn14..15 If you love Me, keep My commandments.
16 "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever -
17 "The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
18 "I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

GOD promised: a helper,
to know + to see Him,
to live, to be loved,
to be His dwelling place...
all based on v.15.

19 "A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also."
21 "He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him."
23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him."


Jn15..8 "By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
9 "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
10 "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.

GOD's hard truth is rarely believed and taught in the current church, rather,
it teaches against an intimate, one-on-one, personal love relationship in Him.
GOD is Spirit, so He seeks our spiritual relationship Jn4, only possible thru obeying,
yet the current church fails to teach the conditions and degrees seen in the Greek.
GOD's initial love to us is moral, but as we obey some begin a partial knowing
1Jn2:3,24,27, then He elects a few to deeper, fuller knowing 1Jn3:6; 5:20, if we 1Jn3:24.
GOD tests our desire, effort, willingness to love Him from the heart Mat22 Jam1:12.
