THE AGAPE LOVE ISSUE.

Because they did not have agape love within them, then
all of their dedication and service was in VAIN. The ONE SINGLE INGREDIENT
THEY NEEDED TO BE ACCEPTED BY GOD WAS MISSING: AGAPE LOVE. So the
real question becomes this: HOW DO WE OBTAIN IT? It is not a "decision for Christ."
It is not by simply BELIEVING IT. It is not by claiming it as an ACT OF FAITH.

We now come back to Paul and will take another look at his comments on CHARITY,
and it should become obvious to you what Paul is saying:

"Though I speak with the TONGUES OF MEN AND OF ANGELS, AND HAVE
NOT (AGAPE LOVE) CHARITY, I am become as a sounding brass, or a tinkling
cymbal.

And though I have THE GIFT OF PROPHECY,


AND UNDERSTAND ALL MYSTERIES, AND ALL KNOWLEDGE,
AND THOUGH I HAVE ALL FAITH,
SO THAT I COULD REMOVE MOUNTAINS,
AND HAVE NOT (AGAPE LOVE) CHARITY.
I AM NOTHING.

And though I BESTOW ALL MY GOODS TO FEED THE POOR, AND THOUGH
I GIVE MY BODY TO BE BURNED,
AND HAVE NOT (AGAPE LOVE) CHARITY,
IT PROFITETH ME NOTHING."
(1 Corinthians 13: 1-3)

What Paul is telling us it that WITHOUT THE BESTOWEMENT OF AGAPE


LOVE AT REGENERATION, WE WILL NOT ENTER HEAVEN. You can become
the
greatest superstar TV evangelist in the world, the greatest miracle worker ever, the most
sought after theologian to ever walk planet earth, you can be a Mother Teresa, you can
give away everything you own, and become a world known philanthropist; and it will
AVAIL YOU NOT ONE THING, YOU WILL NOT PROFIT FROM IT. Entrance to
heaven is not based upon any of these things.

Your gifts of the Spirit will avail you nothing, your faith will avail you nothing, your
belief will avail you nothing, for none of these are what CONSTITUTE SALVATION
ITSELF. Faith and belief are MERELY DYNAMICS THAT MOVE YOU THROUGH
THE NARROW WAY over time TO OBTAIN
SALVATION. FAITH IS NOT SALVATION ITSELF, BELIEF IS NOT SALVATION
ITSELF. FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST IS NOT SALVATION. THESE ARE ONLY THE
BEGINNING STEPS. AS THE MANY FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY. THE BIBLE
TELLS YOU EXACTLY WHAT SALVATIOIN IS: AGAPE LOVE BESTOWMENT,
UNION WITH THE LIVING JESUS CHRIST.

The following will be proven totally:

1. Agape love does not come at conversion to Jesus Christ.


2. Agape love does not come at baptism in water.
3. Agape love does not come at baptism in the Holy Spirit.
4. Agape love does not come simply because you have faith.
5. Agape love does not come simply because you believe.
6. Agape love does not come because you were confirmed.
7. Agape love does not come because you made a decision for Christ.
8. Agape love does not come because you asked Jesus into your heart.
9. Agape love does not come simply because you go out and do good works.

AGAPE LOVE COMES WHEN AND ONLY WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN OBEDIENT
TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, HAVE KEPT HIS SAYINGS, HAVE ENTERED
THE STRAIT GATE, AND HAVE
WALKED THE NARROW WAY TO THE FINDING OF CHRIST AND UNION. In
spite of all the theological denials in modern Christianity, you will not ENTER THE
NEW COVENANT ANY OTHER WAY. You can either do it or you
will simply be left behind for eternity. THE CHOICE IS YOURS. Your opinions do not
count, your bias does not count, your beliefs do not count, your church denominations
opinions do not count. NOTHING WHATEVER ON EARTH
COUNTS; GOD IS SOVEREIGN, YOU DO AS HE SAYS, OR YOU PERISH IN
YOUR SINS. CASE CLOSED

"And now abideth faith, hope (Agape Love) Charity, THESE THREE,
BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE IS (AGAPE LOVE) CHARITY"
(1 Corinthians 13:13)

The word 'greatest' is 'metzon' and it means LARGEST, THE GREATER, THE
MORE. It is comparative to 'megas' which means EXCEEDINGLY GREAT. Faith is
good, hope is good, but of all things AGAPE LOVE IS THE
GREATEST OF ALL. The reason is simple: IT GET YOU INTO HEAVEN'S GATE, IT
IS YOUR TICKET TO HEAVEN.

"And ABOVE ALL THESE THINGS

PUT ON (AGAPE LOVE) CHARITY,


WHICH IS THE BOND OF PERFECTNESS"
Colossians 3:14

Notice how this is worded ABOVE ALL THINGS, we are told to PUT ON CHARITY,
for it is the BOND of perfection. The word 'bond' here is 'sundesmos' and it means a
JOINT TIE, A UNITING PRINCIPLE, and it comes from the word 'sun' which means
UNION, TO BE WITH, TOGETHER. it verifies wholly the prayer of Christ, that ALL
BELIEVERS WOULD COME TO THE FULLNESS OF AGAPE LOVE UNION
Agape love itself IS THE BOND OF PERFECTION. The word 'perfection' is 'teliotes'
and it means PERFECTNESS, COMPLETENESS, PERFECTION. In other words,
when agape love is bestowed ONE HAS ENTERED INTO COMPLETENESS WITH
CHRIST. You have entered into UNION WITH CHRIST.

"Now THE END of the commandment is (AGAPE LOVE) CHARITY,

OUT OF A PURE HEART,


AND OF A GOOD CONSCIENCE,
AND OF FAITH UNFEIGNED
I Timothy 1:5

The END OR THE FINAL RESULT OF THE COMMANDMENT OF CHRIST IS


THAT WE OBTAIN AGAPE LOVE FROM GOD. When you come to the end, when
you are dead and know it, when you have walked the narrow way, when AGAPE LOVE
IS REVEALED AND BESTOWED, then you have a PURE HEART, AND YOU ALSO
HAVE A FAITH THAT IS UNFEIGNED. There is a false faith, in fact it is the faith of
the modern faith movement. IT IS A FALSE FAITH, AN UNTRIED FAITH, A
COUNTERFEIT FAITH, A FAITH THAT IS POSING AS REAL FAITH It all began
back in the 1700's from which came the modern faith movement.

Many verses of Scripture have been shown that prove the essence of the Godhead is
100% PURE AGAPE LOVE. Scripture clearly says that God created man in HIS OWN
IMAGE, IN HIS OWN LIKENESS. It will now be proven totally that 'IMAGE' means
precisely the image of AGAPE LOVE SPIRIT ESSENCE.

'IN WHOM THE GOD OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF
THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT,

LEST THE LIGHT (AGAPE LOVE)


OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST,
WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD
SHOULD SHINE UNTO THEM."
(2 Corinthians 4:4)
Christ is the IMAGE OF GOD. The word 'image' here is 'eikon' which means A
LIKENESS, A REPRESENTATION. It is the same meaning as the word 'image' of the
Old Testament. As Christ was made in the image of God, and we have proved that Christ
was pure 100% agape love, then man was also created in the same image, the image of
100% pure agape love. Speaking of Christ in Colossians, we find:

"Who is THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD.


the firstborn of every creature."
Colossians 1:15

There is no question here, man was created in the exact image of God, and we have
Christ as our example, which is why Christ was called the SECOND ADAM:

"And so it is written
the FIRST MAN ADAM WAS MADE A LIVING SOUL,

THE LAST ADAM WAS MADE A QUICKENING SPIRIT."


(1 Corinthians 15:4

Jesus was called the second Adam to tell us something very important, AGAPE LOVE
WAS LOST AS THE FALL, AND THROUGH CHRIST, IF WE BE OBEDIENT TO HIS
COMMANDS, WE CAN REGAIN OUR LOST SPIRITUAL ESSENCE. THE
REGAINING OF AGAPE LOVE AT REGENERATION IS ALSO CALLED
'QUICKENING'. We must regain it or we will perish in our sins. The 'many' did not
regain their lost spiritual essence; they refused to comply with the demands of Jesus
Christ.

Their theology told them His demands were non-essential. It cost them eternity. DO NOT
MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE. ETERNITY IS A LONG TIME.

Therefore, we conclude that both Adam and Eve were made in the AGAPE LOVE
IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF GOD. In graphic form, it would appear like this:

You will notice in the graphics that there are lines coming from the center of their hearts
outwards, flowing AWAY FROM THEM. It is vital you grasp why this is so. It is an
ATTRIBUTE OF PURE AGAPE LOVE TO ALWAYS FLOW OUTWARD,
TOWARDS OTHERS, NEVER INWARDS TOWARDS SELF. True love concerns itself
MORE WITH OTHERS THAN WITH ITSELF. Agape flows outward from the giver,
who in reality is nothing more than a conduit for God to work through. This type of
love is pure, without guile. without wrong motive. Divine agape love is the HIGHEST
LOVE FORM IN THE UNIVERSE, THERE IS NO LOVE GREATER THAN DIVINE
AGAPE.

THE BOOK DEFINITION OF AGAPE LOVE

We have been using the term agape love to describe a form of love that in it's pure form
belongs only to God. If we were to study Scripture we could learn what definition God
applies to it, that is, we could learn ABOUT AGAPE LOVE. When we discuss the
definitions of agape love, we are only discussing
the book definition, we are only going to learn ABOUT agape love. This examination
will give to us a 'mental' knowledge of agape love, and only from the perspective of
FALLEN MAN. This means that whatever we learn, it is only from the very limited
perspective of our fallen nature, for pure agape
love is beyond all knowledge, all wisdom, all ability for us to comprehend, unless it is
REVEALED TO US.

Scripture proves that it is not sufficient to learn ABOUT AGAPE LOVE. To learn
ABOUT agape love is to learn things ABOUT CHRIST. You can memorize the Scripture,
learn it forwards and backwards, and still only know ABOUT JESUS. That is a 'mental
knowledge' or soul knowledge that extends only to the FACTS AND TESTIMONY OF
JESUS CHRIST. That is wholly insufficient for REGENERATION. Jesus warned us of
this very thing:

'SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES;


FOR IN THEM YE THINK YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE:

AND THEY ARE THEY WHICH TESTIFY OF ME.


AND YE WILL NOT COME TO ME (VIA THE STRAIT GATE AND NARROW
WAY),
THAT YE MIGHT HAVE LIFE."
(John 5: 39-40 )

Jesus is telling us that the Scriptures are ONLY A TESTIMONY OF WHO JESUS
CHRIStIt is a factual document that tells us many things about this person Jesus Christ.
THEY ARE A TESTIMONY. Jesus is telling you that the SCRIPTURES DO NOT
CONTAIN ETERNAL LIFE You can search the Bible all you want to, night and day,
you can memorize verses, you can quote them backward and forward but it will not bring
to you ETERNAL LIFE. You can claim all the promises by FAITH, and you will not have
ETERNAL LIFE. WHAT YOU ARE ENGAGED IN AT THAT POINT IS A HEAD
KNOWLEDGE, A SENSE KNOWLEDGE, A SOUL KNOWLEDGE ABOUT
JESUS CHRIST, OF WHAT JESUS CHRIST IS, YOUR SO CALLED FAITH IS A
HEAD FAITH, A MENTAL FAITH, NOT A HEART FAITH

The danger here should be obvious to all: YOU CANNOT SIMPLY EMBRACE A
BUNCH OF FACTS AND PROMISES OF THE BIBLE 'BY FAITH' and then claim
SALVATION. You do not claim salvation by saying "The Bible says I'm saved,
so I'm saved." SALVATION IS NOT APPROPRIATED IN THAT MANNER, FOR
THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THE 'MANY' DID, AND THEY WERE NOT SAVED,
THEY DID NOT HAVE SALVATION. Notice what Jesus says 'AND YOU WILL
NOT COME TO ME.' Facts are one thing, promises are one thing, but none of it avails
you anything at all, UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU COME TO THE LIVING
JESUS CHRIST, FOR THE REMISSION OF YOUR SINS.

Jesus is separating Himself from the Scripture. Jesus Christ IS NOT THE BIBLE.
Jesus Christ is a living entity, head of His church, ruler of the Universe. He lives and He
oversees His Kingdom.

How are you to come to the Lord Jesus? He tells you how, by entering the strait gate
and walking the narrow way The 'many' or the vast majority of Christians ARE BOOK
CHRISTIANS, BIBLE CHRISTIANS. They have a VAST KNOWLEDGE ABOUT
JESUS CHRIST. They know all about Him. These are mere FACTS. They EMBRACED
THE FACTS AND SAID BY KNOWING THE FACTS, BY ACCEPTING THE
FACTS AS A MATTER OF FAITH, THEY WERE SAVED. NO WHERE DOES
THE BIBLE SAY THAT. IT SAYS YOU MUST COME TO THE LIVING CHRIST,
AND VIA THE STRAIT GATE AND NARROW WAY OF DEATH. The rejected
merely embraced a few promises IN THE BILBLE BY AN ACT OF FAITH, AND
DECLARED THEMSELVES REGENERATED, AND IN FULL UNION WITH
CHRIST. They redefined what faith really is, and it cost them eternity. THEY WOULD
NOT COME TO THE LIVING JESUS CHRIST.

It is the LIVING JESUS CHRIST THAT WE MUST COME TO. IT IS THE LIVING
JESUS CHRIST WE MUST FIND AND SEARCH OUT. It is the living Jesus Christ that
offers SALVATION. It is UNION WITH THE LIVING JESUS CHRIST that offers you
eternal life. You can KNOW ALL ABOUT JESUS CHRIST WITHOUT KNOWING
WHO JESUS IS. We will cover this in depth later in this series, for it is vital that you
know the difference BETWEEN KNOWING ABOUT JESUS, AND KNOWING JESUS
IN REALITY, EXPERIENTIALLY IN HIS PERSON, HIS INNER ESSENCE, OR
WHO HE REALLY IS.

"And TO KNOW THE (AGAPE) LOVE OF CHRIST

WHICH PASSETH ALL KNOWLEDGE

THAT YE MIGHT BE FILLED WITH ALL THE FULLNESS


OF GOD."
Ephesians 3:19
The word 'passeth' is 'huperballo' and it means TO GO BEYOND, TO SURPASS, TO
EXCEEDINGLY BEYOND. It is essential you grasp what this means: IT MEANS
THAT TRUE, DIVINE AGAPE LOVE IS BEYOND THE CAPACITY OF MAN TO
LEARN IT. It is totally beyond our knowledge or wisdom because IT IS ALIEN TO US,
WE DO NOT HAVE IT WITHIN US. That is why Paul said you could have ALL
KNOWLEDGE, AND UNDERSTAND ALL MYSTERIES, AND STILL NOT HAVE
AGAPE. AGAPE IS NOT SOMETHING YOU LEARN. AGAPE IS NOT SOMETHING
THAT COMES THROUGH THE MIND OR SENSES. There are many things you can
search out with the human mind HOWEVER,

AGAPE LOVE IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

The only thing you can understand about agape love ARE THE FACTS ABOUT IT. For
example, you could read I Corinthians 13 and find out ABOUT AGAPE LOVE. You
could study the life of Jesus Christ and find out ABOUT AGAPE LOVE IN ACTION.
You could even memorize everything there was to know about it, and then go out and
MIMIC JESUS CHRIST and do everything He did, and still YOU DO NOT HAVE
AGAPE LOVE WITHIN. The human soul CANNOT MANUFACTURE DIVINE
AGAPE LOVE. It is simply and totally BEYOND HIS CAPACITY. He does not have it
within, and that is why GOD MUST BESTOW IT UPON THE SEEKING SOUL.

It is absolutely essential that you understand that simply because you have a mental
knowledge of something, or you know something from a human perspective, that YOU
HAVE NOT CHANGED YOUR NATURE. You CAN learn ALL ABOUT AGAPE
LOVE. You CAN by sheer will-power VOW to carry out all the tasks that agape love
requires. That is, you can feed the poor, give clothing to the naked, visit the sick, the shut-
ins, and those in jails and prisons. You can attend church every Sunday, for every service,
and any other functions during the week. You can tithe, you can give alms, you can sing
your songs and pray diligently every hour on the hour. YOU HAVE STILL NOT
CHANGED YOUR NATURE. YOUR ESSENTIAL NATURE REMAINS THE
SAME. A FALLEN HUMAN BEING IS A FALLEN HUMAN BEING, NO
MATTER HOW MUCH HE MAY WHITEWASH HIS SOUL AND PUT ON A
FRONT TO DECEIVE HIMSELF AND HIS FELLOW HUMANS.

AGAPE LOVE is something that one must POSSESS. AGAPE LOVE MUST
BECOME PART OF YOUR NATURE, YOUR INNER ESSENCE. Your inner heart
must be RESSURRECTED IN A LOVE CHANGE, AND YOU MUST BE GIVEN A
NEW HEART THAT IS MADE DIRECT FROM THE HAND OF GOD. A
SUPERNATURAL ACT. Agape love is either WITHIN the heart or it is NOT. You do
not learn about it to get it, you do not memorize the deeds of it and then go do it to
possess it. You must do what God commands, and if you will, HE WILL GIVE IT TO
YOU AS A GIFT, IF YOU WILL NOT, HE WILL NOT. AGAPE LOVE KNOWN
EXPERIENTIALLY IS THE DISTILLATION OF THE BIBLE. WHEN GOD
REVEALS THE TRUTH OF AGAPE LOVE TO THE BELIEVER, THE
BELIEVER INSTANTLY KNOWS WHAT THE ENTIRE BIBLE IS ALL ABOUT.
THAT IS THE SIMPLICITY OF CHRIST.

This is what Paul is telling us in his discourse on charity. NONE OF THE ITEMS
LISTED AVAIL YOU OF ANYTHING. YOU MUST LAY HOLD OF AGAPE LOVE
VIA THE STRAIT GATE AND NARROW WAY. You must enter into AUTHENTIC
UNION with the LIVING JESUS CHRIST. Remember the 'many' rejected of Jesus?
Remember the luke-warm Church REJECTED? Remember the NON-OVERCOMERS?
Remember the 'many' who followed after the false teachers? Remember the wicked and
evil servants? They all have one thing in common: NO AGAPE LOVE WITHIN. They
did not have it because they refused to enter the strait gate and walk the narrow way.

We will now turn to an expository dictionary and find out the DICTIONARY
interpretation of agape love. This tells us ABOUT WHAT AGAPE LOVE IS." The
Expanded Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Word's", will be the first place
we will stop. It is one of the better explananation ABOUT agape love from mankind's
perspective. We turn to page 692 and we read: "LOVE" verbs

1. AGAPAO and the corresponding noun AGAPE PRESENT "the characteristic word of
Christianity, and since the Spirit of revelation has used it to EXPRESS IDEAS
PREVIOUSLY UNKNOWN, inquiry into its use, whether in Greek literature or in
the Septuagint, throws BUT LITTLE LIGHT UPON IT'S DISTINCTIVE
MEANING IN THE NEW TESTAMENT...."

I would like to stop right there, for this statement is more profound than most realize
Agape love was UNKNOWN
PRIOR TO CHRIST. There is no corresponding word in the Old Testament. It is
UNKNOWN because CHRIST CAME TO REVEAL IT. The life of Jesus Christ
REVEALS THE NATURE OF AGAPE LOVE. The life of Christ REVEALS WHAT
AGAPE LOVE IS. Prior to Christ the created nature of man was locked in the distant
past, an unknown, a mystery. Christ came to show us ABOUT THE MYSTERY. The
Old Testament was merely a TESTIMONY OF THE AGAPE LOVE OF GOD. Christ
came as PERSONIFIED AGAPE LOVE. Christ was the actual and literal SPIRIT OF
AGAPE LOVE IN THE FLESH, BORN OF A WOMAN TO BE A SON OF MAN,
BORN OF A VIRGIN TO BE THE SON OF GOD. THE VERY NATURE OF CHRIST,
HIS VERY ESSENCE, THE FIBERS OF HIS BEING WERE PURE AGAPE LOVE.

Agape love is indeed a DISTINCTIVE TYPE OF LOVE and by and large expositors
IGNORE THIS RADICAL DISTINCTION. Christ was a RADICAL and His distinction
lies in HIS ESSENCE: PURE AGAPE LOVE. Scripture proves MANKIND KNOWS
NOTHING WHATEVER ABOUT THIS FORM OF
AGAPE LOVE. Man has a form of agape love, but that form is nothing more than a sub-
definition of his PHILEO LOVE, HIS NATURAL LOVE. We will learn about phileo
love later. We will now continue:
"AGAPE and AGAPAO are used in the NT (a) to describe the attidude of God toward His
Son, John 17:26; the human race, generally, John 3:16; Rom. 5:8; and to such as believe
on the Lord Jesus Christ, particularly, John 14:21. (b) to convey His will towards His
children concerning their attitude one toward another, John 13:34, and toward all men. 1
Thess. 3:12; 1 Cor. 16:14, 2 Peter 1:7. (c) to EXPRESS THE ESSENTIAL NATURE
OF GOD. 1 John 4:8

Love can be known only from the ACTION IT PROMPTS. God's love is seen in the gift of
His Son. 1 John 4:9-10. But obviously this is not the love of complacency, or affection,
that is, it is not drawn out by any excellency of its objects Rom. 5:8. It was an exercise of
the Divine will in deliberate choice, made without assignable cause save that WHICH
LIES IN THE NATURE OF GOD HIMSELF. Deut 7:7,8.

Love had it's perfect expression among men IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. 2 Cor. 5:14;
5:3; Eph. 2:4; 3:19; 5:2. CHRISTIAN LOVE IS THE FRUIT OF HIS SPIRIT IN THE
CHRISTIAN. Gal. 5:22.

Christian love has God for its primary object, and expresses itself FIRST OF ALL IN
IMPLICIT OBEDIENCE TO HIS COMMANDMENTS. John 14:15, 21, 23; 15:10; 1
John 2:5; 5:3, 2 John 6.

Christian love, whether exercised towards the bretren, or towards men generally, IS NOT
AN IMPULSE FROM THE FEELINGS, IT DOES NOT ALWAYS RUN WITH THE
NATURAL INCLINATIONS, NOR DOES IT SPEND ITSELF ONLY UPON THOSE FOR
WHOM SOME AFINITY IS DISCOVERED. LOVE SEEKS THE WELFARE FO ALL.
Rom. 15:2, and WORKS NO ILL TO ANY, 1 Cor. 13:8-10. LOVE SEEKS
OPPORTUNITY TO DO GOOD TO ALL MEN AND ESPECIALLY TOWARD THEM
THAT ARE OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF THE FAITH, Gal. 6:10, See further 1 Cor. 13
and Col. 3:12-14.

In respect of AGAPAO as used of God, it expresses the DEEP AND CONSTANT LOVE
AND INTEREST OF A PERFECT BEING TOWARDS ENTIRELY UNWORTHY
OBJECTS, producing and fostering a reverential love in them towards the Giver, and a
practical love, towards those who are PARTAKERS OF THE SAME, and a desire to help
others to SEEK THE GIVER."

This is probably the best book definition you will find on the actual FACTS, concerning
AGAPE LOVE. IT IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF LOVE IN THE UNIVERSE. IT
IS ALSO NOT EMOTIONAL, IN THE SENSE THAT WE VIEW PHILEO LOVE.
IT IS FAR DEEPER, ALIEN TO THE HUMAN CONDITION. Mankind, in his fallen
natural state DOES NOT POSSES THIS DIVINE TYPE OF AGAPE LOVE. It is not that
man does have a FORM OF AGAPE LOVE, but that form is ed, and twisted, and thus
MAN'S AGAPE LOVE IS FEIGNED LOVE. AN UNTRUE LOVE. The religious of the
world attempt to MANUFACTURE A FORM OF AGAPE LOVE WITHOUT GOING
TO THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST TO GET IT.
There is no question that AGAPE LOVE IS THE KEY TO SALVATION. It will be
proven so in this series with hundreds of verses of Scripture. To be regenerated, we
MUST BE PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE AGAPE LOVE, and we MUST ENTER
THE STRAIT GATE AND WALK THE NARROW WAY TO OBTAIN IT.

CODE WORDS FOR AGAPE LOVE

There are many code words used that in reality mean AGAPE LOVE. The use of code
words was done because agape love is the secret of God, the mystery of God. Agape love
is HIDDEN from man because it is not a part of his nature, therefore he cannot
comprehend it's meaning. Man is dealing totally with the supernatural, totally with an
alien form of love he cannot fathom. The Bible is written in code. It has one meaning for
the unregenerate who will not obey the command to search things out, and quite another
for those that will be obedient. It is designed that way to give the disobedient a GRAND
DELUSION OF SALVATION that is UTTERLY FALSE. It is a SURPRISE,
SURPRISE approach, allowed by God for the simple reason HE WARNED US ALL TO
SEEK IT OUT WITH GREAK DILIGENCE.

The use of code words is done to throw off those whose hearts are not sincere in their
search. They will read it, but not understand it. They will hear it, and not comprehend
what was said. God did that on purpose because He fore knew that the vast majority of
the 'religious' were imposters, hypocrites, liars and deceivers. The Bible therefore was
supernaturally written and designed in such a way as to REFLECT THE INNER
HEART MOTIVE BACK TO THE READER, IN A MANNER SO AS TO JUSTIFY
THEMSELVES IN DELUSION. The white supremacist groups quote Scripture, and
use it to justify their sin. The Baptists quote the Bible, and use it to condemn all others.
The Catholic Popes used Scripture to torture and murder millions of people. How is it
possible? Because the Bible was written by a supernatural God who TOLD US IN IS
BOOK THAT HE WOULD CHOOSE OUR DELUSIONS. The impact of that remark
is awful in implication.

If the heart of the believer is NOT SEEKING TRUTH, THE REAL TRUTH, no matter
how close to home it comes, and it will hit DEAD CENTER ot the seeker's heart, THEN
GOD WILL CAUSE A DELUSION IN THE MIND OF THAT SOUL. The truth that God
presents to the human race is a TERRIBLE TRUTH, so bad, in fact, that CHRIST SAID
FEW WOULD FACE IT.

If we have millions of people quoting form their Bibles, millions of people believing they
are saved and going to heaven, when Christ says the opposite, have we not hten
MASSIVE DELUSION? HAVE WE NOT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THAT ARE
TOTALLY MISTAKEN AS TO THEIR STANDING BEFORE GOD? Man will not face
the real truth, so God allows him to twist the Scripture totally around, it, distort it and sail
on right into damnation.

We will now look at soem of the more frequent words which mean AGAPE LOVE.
When you begin to discover these code words, the message of the Bible becomes much
more clear, and the meanings of what Christ was referring to jump off the pages at you,
and you begin to discern the Scripture in a whole new light.

WATER

Water is the basis for all physical life on earth. It is one of the key essential ingredients
that allows us to live. As water is the central essence for physical life, so to is agape love
the essence of all spiritual life. Agape love IS WATER OF THE SPIRIT. Because this is
true, the use of the word water, waters, wash, washed, washing, wells, pools, sprinkling,
clouds and rain often have a direct code meaning to agape love. When you study the
Scripture with this in mind, a whole new truth begins to emerge from previously
mysterious comments. One of the last verses of the entire Bible has this comment:
"And THE SPIRIT AND THE BRIDE SAY, COME, AND LET HIM WHO
HEARETH SAY, COME. AND LET HIM THAT IS ATHRIST come.

AND WHOMSOEVER WILL, LET HIM TAKE THE WATER OF LIFE


FREELY." (Revelation 22:17 )

This is an open invitation to all mankind to come and to DRINK OF THE WATER OF
LIFE. The water of life is AGAPE LOVE, the essence of God, the image of God. Notice
the precondition of BECOMING ATHIRST. If we are thirsty we will come. If we are not,
we will not. The invitation of the strait gate and narrow way lies before man. He can
come as God has ordained, and drink of agape love, which is at the end of the narrow
way, or he can die and to into eternal ruin.

"AND HE SHEWED A PURE RIVER OF WATER OF LIFE, CLEAR AS


CRYSTAL, PRECEEDING OUT OF THE THRONE OF GOD AND OF THE
LAMB." (Revelation 22:1)

Again we find WATER OF LIFE. As agape love is the life of the Spirit, then we know
that what is meant by this is a PURE RIVER OF AGAPE LOVE, PURE AS CRYSTAL,
which comes forth from God and Christ. The agape love of God and Christ is 100%
PURE. There are no imperfections in it, it is not 99.9999% pure, it is TOTALLY
PERFECT, PERFECT PURITY.

"AND HE SAID UNTO ME, IT IS DONE. I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE


BEGINNING AND THE END. I WILL GIVE UNTO HIM THAT IS ATHIRST OF
THE FOUNTAIN OF THE WATER OF LIFE FREELY.
HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL INHERIT ALL THINGS; AND I WILL BE
HIS GOD AND HE SHALL BE MY SON." (Revelation 21:6-7)
We must read this carefully, for all the elements that constitute TRUE SALVATION are
right here. We find THE WATER OF LIFE, which is agape love. We find the
precondition of being ATHIRST. Christ places a CONDITION UPON THE
GRANTING OF THE WATER OF LIVE: I WILL GIVE UNTO HIM THAT IS
'ATHIRST'. That means he will not give to those that ARE NOT ATHIRSTsomething
we shall prove out later. He then ties together the GIVING OF THE WATER (AGAPE
LOVE) TO THAT OF BEING AN OVERCOMER. It is the granting of the gift of
AGAPE LOVE that makes one an overcomer. He then ties that directly to BEING A
SON OF GOD. That totally confirms it. 1 John 3:1 and 1 John 3:14. We then see a
SEQUENCE.

1. THIRST
2. THE GRANTING OF AGAPE LOVE
3. THAT MAKES ONE AN OVERCOMER
4. THAT MAKES ONE A SON OF GOD
5. THAT MAKES ONE PASS FROM DEATH TO LIFE.

The use of the term water tied to life proves also that LIFE is another code word for
agape love, something easily proved by a word search on the word life. We will now look
at the encounter Christ had with the woman at the well, for here is a perfect confirmation.

"Jesus answered and said unto her, IF THOU KNEWEST THE GIFT OF GOD,
AND WHO IT IS THAT SAITH TO THEE. GIVE ME TO DRINK; THOU
WOULDEST HAVE ASKED OF HIM, AND HE WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEE
LIVING WATER." (John 4:10)

Jesus says "IF THOU KNEWEST THE GIFT OF GOD...". 1 John 3:1 says that AGAPE
LOVE BESTOWED IS THE GIFT OF GOD. The LIVING WATER FROM THE
WELLS OF SALVATION HAS TO THEN BE AGAPE LOVE. We are to KNOW IT, TO
EXPERIENCE IT. We find again a reference to LIVING WATER, which is another way
of saying the WATER OF LIFE. Jesus says over and over that HE HIMSELF GIVES OF
THIS WATER. This will be important later when we study the different functions of the
Trinity in salvation. IT IS JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF PERSONALY, THAT GIVES
US THE WATER OF LIFE, which is AGAPE LOVE.

"BUT WHOSOEVER DRINKETH OF THE WATER


THAT I SHALL GIVE HIM SHALL NEVER THRIST:
BUT THE WATER THAT I SHALL GIVE
SHALL BE IN HIM A WELL OF WATER
SPRINGING UP INTO EVERLASTING LIFE."
John 4:14
Again Christ claims HE HIMSELF SHALL GIVE THIS WATER OF LIFE. It is not the
Holy Spirit, it is not God the Father. BUT HE HIMSELF, PERSONALLY something
we shall verify totally as we proceed, even though modern theology DENIES IT. This
'water' that Christ gives PROMISES that the believer shall NEVER THIRST AGAIN,
and in fact holds with it ETERNAL LIFE

"HE THAT BELIEVETH ON ME, AS THE SCRIPTURE HATH SAID, OUT


OF HIS BELLY SHALL FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER." (John 7;38 )

HE THAT BELIEVETH ON JESUS CHRIST SHALL HAVE THIS LIVING WATER.


The 'many' Christians believed, yet they did not have this LIVING WATER. WHY
NOT? The answer lies in the QUALIFICATIONS THAT CHRIST LAYS DOWN FOR
HIS DEFINITION OF 'BELIEVE'. IT IS A REGENERATIVE BELIEF! IT IS A
BELIEF THAT COMES ONLY TO THE REGENERATED, A BELIEF FROM
THE INNER HEART:

"But God be thanked, THAT YE WERE THE SERVANTS OF SIN,


BUT YE HAVE OBEYED FROM THE HEART
THAT FORM OF DOCTRINE WHICH WAS DELIVERED TO YOU. (Romans
6:17)

"THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH


THE LORD JESUS
AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART.
THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD,
THOU SHALT BE SAVED.

FOR WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS;


(WHICH IS AGAPE LOVE BESTOWMENT) AND WITH THE MOUTH
CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION."
(Romans 10:9-10 )

It is imperative to understand that the MANY WERE POSITIVE THEY BELIEVED


FROM THEIR HEART. THEY ALSO CONFESSED WITH THEIR MOUTH. YET
THEY WERE REJECTED OUT OF HAND, THEY WERE NOT SAVED.Scripture
proves MAN HAS TWO HEARTS, ONE OUTER, ONE
INNER. IT IS WITH THE INNER HEART THAT MAN IS REGENERATED. ONE
MUST BELIEVE FROM THE INNER HEART, AND TO ACCOMPLISH THAT
THE INNER HEART MAN, THE SPIRIT MAN, MUST BE REGENERATED
INTO NEW AGAPE LOVE LIFE.

The living waters are of course a never ending supply of AGAPE LOVE, for Christ is
the supplier, and Christ is God, who holds a limitless supply of this divine love. Out of
the inner heart of one who has come to believe from their INNER HEART upon Christ
WILL FLOW THIS LOVE. The believer becomes a conduit of the great
power in the universe, the power of pure AGAPE LOVE.

"Jesus answered,VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO THEE,

EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN OF WATER AND OF


THE SPIRIT, HE CANNOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD" (John 3:5)

Here we find THE CONDITION for entering the kingdom of God. That means if we do
not have the condition of being BORN OF WATER, AND OF BEING BORN OF THE
SPIRIT, we CANNOT, NOT IN ANY WISE, IN NO WISE, ENTER THE
KINGDOM. Many Christians laugh and scoff at
the concept of REBIRTH OR BEING BORN AGAIN, and many churches REFUSE to
allow anyone to even SPEAK OF IT, but their laughter will turn to sorrow, their mocking
to tears. Jesus uses the term water here, and He is not referring to baptism in some
baptismal font. He is speaking of being
BORN OF AGAPE LOVE WATER, OF HAVING YOUR ESSENTIAL NATURE
CHANGED, OF BEING TRANSFERRED FROM DEATH TO LIFE VIA THE
MIRACLE OF AGAPE LOVE
REVELATION AND BESTOWMENT. It will be totally proven out by series end. If
water represents AGAPE LOVE, then terms that would indicate DRYNESS, would
indicate the LACK OF AGAPE LOVE.

"THESE ARE WELLS WITHOUT WATER, CLOUDS THAT ARE CARRIED


WITH A TEMPEST;
TO WHOM THE MIST OF DARKNESS IS RESERVED FOR EVER."
(2 Peter 2:17)

We have studied the false prophets, the false teachers. What makes them false is that
THEY HAVE NO WATER, THEY HAVE NO AGAPE LOVE WITHIN. They were
never regenerated. They are wells WITHOUT WATER. They are DRY WELLS. They
look like wells,
they talk like wells, they act like wells, but within, they are DRY, UNREGENERATE,
WITH NO AGAPE LOVE WITHIN THEM. The mist of eternal ruin is reserved for
them. There is a terrible warning to all modern evangelists, whose testimony does
not match that of Scripture, whose
teachings are far from the mark.
"These are spots in your feasts of charity,
when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear; CLOUDS THEY ARE
WITHOUT WATER;

CARRIED ABOUT OF WINDS;


TREES WHOSE FRUIT WITHERETH,
WITHOUT FRUIT,
TWICE DEAD, PLUCKED UP BY THE ROOTS.
(Jude 12)

The clue is again that they are called CLOUDS WITHOUT WATER. No water, no
agape love, or NOT REGENERATE. If we go back to the Old Testament, we will find
many reference that mean agape
love, which at that time was not revealed to man, because Christ had not yet come into
the world to show man what agape love means. The first place to stop in the story of
Moses taking Israel between the waters of the Red Sea.
It is interesting to note that THE WATERS PARTED, AND BETWEEN THEM WAS
NARROW WAY OF ESCAPE.

Water can refer to either the natural love of man or to divine love. The portrait of the
parting of the sea is the DIVIDING OF THE WATERS that is making a distinction
between the two, and placing a narrow way of escape. It is the perfect portrait of THE
DIVISION BETWEEN PHILEO LOVE AND AGAPE LOVE, AND THE
NARROW WAY TO FIND THE
AGAPE LOVE OF GOD. It is also interesting that as they walked the narrow way,
THAT BOTH TYPES OF LOVE WERE BESIDE THEM. It is likewise true of the
believer, but he does not recognize the difference between the two, nor can he, until he
comes out on the other side, and his deliverance is
realized by direct revelation of agape love, which passes all understanding.

It was water that destroyed man in the flood, and water is a code for agape love. Agape
love is both water and fire. In fact the waters are to turn into fire in the end. If man
ignores the command of Christ and God to lay hold of agape love no matter the cost, then
AGAPE LOVE ITSELF WILL JUDGE
MAN, DESTROY MAN, AND BURN HIM.

What happens after Israel reach the other side is where we will focus, for it shows us the
difference between the two types of love, two types of water:

"So Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea, and they went into the WILDERNESS
OF SHUR; and they WENT THREE DAYS IN THE WILDERNESS, and found NO
WATER. and when they came to Marah, they COULD NOT DRINK OF THE
WATERS OF MARAH, for they were BITTER, therefore the name of it was called
Marah." (Exodus 15:22-23)

This is very important to our search, for they traveled WITHOUT WATER. If you go
THREE DAYS without water, you are ATHIRST. You are PARCHED AND DRY. They
come to a lake called Marah,
which means BITTERNESS. The water was too bitter for them to drink. It is a perfect
portrayal of the VARIOUS PHILEO LOVES OF MAN. It represents the END
RESULT OF THE LOVE OF MAN, IT IS BITTER, NOT FIT TO DRINK. IT IS FULL
OF BETRAYAL, BROKEN PROMISES, and the landscape is
littered with those who put their trust in the love of man. Jesus characterized the love of
man AS EVIL, AS HURTFUL, for it is wholly conditional, manipulative and seeks
power and recognition in the end. IT IS BITTER, FULL OF BITTERNESS.

"And the people murmured against MOSES, saying, WHAT SHALL WE DRINK?

AND HE CRIED UNTO THE LORD;


AND THE LORD SHEWED HIM A TREE (THE CROSS), WHICH, WHEN CAST
INTO THE WATERS,
THE WATERS WERE MADE SWEET; AND THERE IS MADE FOR THEM A
STATUTE AND
AN ORDINANCE AND THERE HE PROVED THEM." (Exodus 15:24-25)

We have a lake of bitter waters, representing the phileo love of mankind. The Lord shows
Moses a TREE. Jesus was crucified on a TREE. The tree represent JESUS CHRIST ON
THE CROSS, and JESUS CHRIST REPRESENTS AGAPE LOVE.
When the tree is CAST INTO THE BITTER WATERS OF PHILEO LOVE, WHEN IT
IS SUPERIMPOSED UPON IT, THEY ARE MADE SWEET. A TRANSFORMATION
TAKES PLACE, A
REGENERATION, A CHANGE IN NATURE, A CHANGE IN ESSENCE to the one
who walks the narrow way to SOUL DEATH. IT HAPPENS ONLY TO THE ONE WHO
DIES WITH CHRIST ON A TREE. He finds the BITTER WATERS OF PHILEO
WATER REPLACED BY THE SWEET WATER OF AGAPE LOVE. This he can drink,
FOR THEY ARE THE WATERS OF LIFE.

It was the transformation of one love to another love that changed the waters from
bitter to sweet. We must UNDERGO A REAL, LITERAL AND FULLY
EXPERIENTIAL LOVE CHANGE, WE MUST MOVE FROM
PHILEO LOVE TO AGAPE LOVE,
and this love change WILL NOT AND CANNOT be made until
one complies with the requirements of being ATHIRST. The dry land between the seas,
the three days without water represent the NARROW WAY UNTO DEATH. JESUS
TOLD US TO PICK UP OUR CROSS. THE CROSS IS AT
CALVARY. YOU BEGIN AT CALVARY, AND YOU GO BEYOND CALVARY,
YOU GO WITH JESUS INTO THE GROUND FOR THREE DAYS, AND ON THE
THIRD DAY, YOU WILL BE
RESURRECTED WITH HIM, IN NEWNESS OF LIFE, IN AGAPE LOVE. We
have a perfect portrait of the strait gate, narrow way, what it represents, and the AGAPE
LOVE CHANGE AT THE END OF THE JOURNEY. It was here that the Lord gave
them a statute, an ordinance. Was it not Christ who commanded that we walk the narrow
way to find LIFE? What is the water of LIFE? Was it not Christ who laid down for us a
STATUTE, AN ORDINANCE? Was it not Christ that
commanded we AGAPE LOVE ONE ANOTHER? Thus:

EGYPT~~~~Red Sea Crossing~~~~~"Wilderness"


The World~~~The narrow way~~~~3 Days no Water

"MARAH"
Bitter to Sweet/ Phileo to Agape

We find then a perfect picture of redemption via the narrow way, of the finding of the
water of life at the end of the narrow way, of the finding of Christ Himself at the end of
the narrow way, of a LOVE CHANGE, FROM BITTER TO SWEET. It is all there if
we would but look upon it with eyes
that were open and not asleep. Everyone must come the same way, the rich man and the
poor man. We all must pay the IDENTICAL SAME PRICE, WE MUST ALL WALK
THE NARROW WAY OR WE WILL NOT ATONE FOR OUR SOULS:

"The rich shall NOT PAY MORE, and the poor


shall NOT GIVE LESS THAN HALF A SHEKEL, WHEN THEY GIVE AN
OFFERING UNTO THE LORD, TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SOULS."
(Exodus
30:15)

The station one holds in life does not matter to God, for He is not a
respecter of persons. The strait gate and narrow way are laid out for all
mankind to see. God does not care if you are a Moslem rich man, a Christian
poor man, a Buddhist, or a New Ager. ALL MUST COME THE SAME WAY, ALL
MUST
PASS THROUGH THE STRAIT GATE AND WALK THE NARROW WAY. If they will
not,
there IS NO ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SOULS. All must give of their life before
God. "Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and DIE, it ABIDETH
ALONE.", said Jesus. Therefore ALL MUST DIE, OR ALL MUST ABIDE
ALONE.
It is interesting that in the worship of the Jews that WATER and the WASHING
IN WATER played such an important part in their ritual and ceremony for the
cleansing away of SIN. In the outer court of the tabernacle was placed a
laver. It was there to wash in for a cleansing from sin.

"THOU SHALT ALSO MAKE A LAVER OF BRASS, AND HIS


FOOT
ALSO OF BRASS, TO WASH WITHAL; AND THOU SHALT PUT IT BETWEEN
THE
TABERNACLE OF THE CONGREGATION AND THE ALTAR AND THOU
SHALT PUT WATER
THEREIN.." "SO THEY SHALL WASH THEIR HANDS AND THEIR FEET,
THAT THEY DIE NOT: AND IT SHALL BE A STATUTE FOR EVER TO
THEM, EVEN TO HIM AND TO HIS SEED THROUGHOUT THEIR
GENERATIONS. (Exodus
30:18,21)

Without the washing, we die. But where is the water of life that we might
wash in it? AT THE END OF THE NARROW WAY. The vast majority of Christians
perish because they NEVER WASH IN THE WATER OF LIFE.
They claim they have, they are told they have by the false prophets and
teachers, but they have not, thus THEY DIE FOR EVER. Jesus had this to say
to Peter:

"Then cometh he to Simon Peter: AND PETER SAITH


UNTO
HIM, LORD, DOST THOU WASH MY FEET?

Jesus answered and said unto him, WHAT I DO THOU KNOWEST NOT NOW;
BUT
THOU SHALT KNOW HEREAFTER.
Peter saith unto him, THOU SHALT NEVER WASH MY FEET. Jesus answered
him,
IF I WASH THEE NOT, THOU HAST NO PART WITH ME.

Simon Peter saith unto him, LORD, NOT MY FEET ONLY, BUT ALSO MY
HANDS AND MY
HEAD.

Jesus saith unto him, HE THAT IS WASHED NEEDETH NOT SAVE TO WASH
HIS
FEET, BUT IS CLEAN EVERY WHIT: AND YE ARE CLEAN, BUT NOT ALL."
(John
13:6-10)

Peter at that time did not KNOW WHAT THE WASHING REPRESENTED, for Peter
and
the others did not realize that the AGAPE LOVE WASHING OF THEM,
TO MAKE THEM CLEAN EVERY WHIT, WAS TO COME UPON THEM. It is
the
washing in AGAPE LOVE that cleans one EVERY WHIT. They are then considered
by God TOTALLY CLEAN IN CHRIST. Notice again WHO DOES
THE WASHING, JESUS HIMSELF. He says that IF
WE WILL NOT ALLOW HIM TO WASH US, WE ARE NONE OF HIS. The
companion
verse to this is Romans 8:9, which speaks of the SPIRIT OF CHRIST WITHIN THE
REAL REGENERATE BELIEVER. The 'many' were never washed by Christ. They
would
not allow it. Their phileo love was as good as Christ's agape love, and they
were lost for ever.

We will now tie together Christ with water in the Old Testament, for it is
the key to understanding much Scripture:

"Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together,


thou, and Aaron thy brother, and SPEAK YE UNTO THE ROCK BEFORE THEIR
EYES,
AND IT SHALL GIVE FORTH HIS WATER, AND THOU SHALT BRING
FORTH TO
THEM WATER OUT OF THE ROCK: SO THOU SHALT GIVE THE
CONGREGATION AND
THEIR BEASTS DRINK." (Numbers 20:8 )

The rock of course represents Christ. Out of this solid rock, which
represents the rock of our foundation comes pure water, the water
of life, the pure water of agape love. Moses made a big mistake, for he
did not speak to the rock, but instead SMOTE IT TWICE WITH A ROD. He paid
the price of his life for UNBELIEF AND DISOBEDIENCE.
Christ died only once for our sins. HE WAS SMITTEN BY THE ROD
ONLY ONCE, NOT TWICE. The point being here that CHRIST AND WATER ARE
BROUGHT TOGETHER. Compare to the Matthew Seven foundation of the house.

"Behold, GOD IS MY SALVATION; I WILL TRUST, AND NOT BE AFRAID:


FOR THE LORD JEHOVAH IS MY STRENGTH AND MY SONG; HE ALSO IS
BECOME
MY SALVATION. THEREFORE WITH JOY SHALL YE DRAW WATER OUT OF
THE WELLS OF
SALVATION." (Isaiah 12:2-3)

We find water associated with SALVATION, and 1 John 3:1 ties AGAPE LOVE TO
SALVATION, so then it becomes obvious does it not? WATER IN MANY CASES IS A
CODE WORD FOR AGAPE LOVE:

"WHEN THE POOR AND NEEDY SEEK WATER, AND


THERE IS NONE, AND THEIR TONGUE FAILETH FOR THIRST, I THE LORD
WILL HEAR THEM, I THE GOD OF ISRAEL WILL NOT FORSAKE THEM.
I WILL OPEN RIVERS IN HIGH PLACES, AND FOUNTAINS IN THE MIDST
OF
THE VALLEYS: I WILL MAKE THE WILDERNESS A POOL OF WATER, AND
DRY LAND SPRINGS OF WATER." (Isaiah 44:3)

Here again we find the PRECONDITIONS OF THIRST, OR A POINT OF


DESPERATION FOR THE SEEKER OF WATER. It's at this point of severe need
that the Lord says HE WILL ANSWER THEM. The many obviously never came to
this point. Notice that God also ties together water with His Spirit. It is
poured out like water. WATER IS INDEED AGAPE LOVE. We
will now look at a negative confirmation, such as Jude gave us on the false
prophets:

"For my people have committed TWO EVILS; THEY HAVE


FORSAKEN ME THE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATERS, AND HEWED THEM
OUT CISTERNS,
BROKEN CISTERNS, THAT CAN HOLD NO WATER." (Jeremiah 2:13)

The vast majority of Christians did the identical same thing. They REFUSED
the command of Christ to enter the strait gate and walk the narrow way, and
thereby have FORSAKEN THE LORD, and then they turned around and
hewed out CHURCH DENOMINATIONS, CHURCH BUILDINGS, LED BY
FALSE
TEACHERS THAT HAD NO WATER, NOR COULD HOLD WATER. There is no
AGAPE
LOVE IN THEM. They have forsaken the RIGHT WAY, they have CARVED OUT
ANOTHER
WAY, they have bypassed the cross and they die WITHOUT AGAPE
LOVE,
AND THEY PERISH FOR EVER.
God likens himself to the fountain of LIVING WATERS, a statement we found at
the end of the book of Revelation. Indeed, god changes not.

"As for thee also, BY THE BLOOD OF THY COVENANT I HAVE


SENT FORTH THY PRISONERS OUT OF THE PIT WHEREIN IS NO WATER."
(Zechariah 9:11)

By the blood of Christ, The New Covenant was SEALED UP AND SECURED. It is
via this New Covenant that we may obtain release from earth, which is the
PIT WITH NO WATER. There is no AGAPE LOVE UPON EARTH for
agape love is ALIEN TO EARTH. It is a further confirmation that
man does not know about, nor comprehend, nor has within his nature,
THE AGAPE LOVE OF GOD. Earth is indeed a PIT WITH NO WATER!

The strait gate and the narrow way is the method Christ uses to separate His
believers, His followers into two camps: THE OBEDIENT AND THE DISOBEDIENT.
Agape love is the SEPARATION POINT BETWEEN THE REDEEMED AND THE
LOST. The
vast majority of Christians, although very sincere, did not realize their
disobedience, and therefore were lost. They did not have the
WATER
OF AGAPE LOVE SPRINKLED UPON THEM. They were not
separated
from the world by the WATER OF SEPARATION.

One of the most important rituals ever performed in Israel's religious


ceremony was that of the WATERS OF SEPARATION. Very few
Christians have heard of it, although it is crucial to understanding WHY
agape love is the DIVISION POINT, THE TRANSITION POINT, THE SEPARATION
POINT, THE CROSSOVER POINT, that passes one from DEATH UNTO
LIFE. It involves what is known as the RED HEIFER. You will find it
all in Numbers Chapter 19. In short, a RED HEIFER, WITHOUT SPOT, WITHOUT
BLEMISH was selected and burned OUTSIDE THE CAMP OF ISRAEL.

The red heifer represents the Lord Jesus Christ, who was
KILLED OUTSIDE THE CAMP, because as you know, Israel REJECTED Christ, and he
was crucified and went through the fires of hell OUTSIDE THE CAMP. They then
would take the ashes of this red heifer, and gather them up and KEPT THE
ASHES OUTSIDE THE CAMP IN A 'CLEAN' PLACE. They were kept for the children
of Israel for A WATER OF SEPARATION"

"And a man that is clean shall gather up the ASHES OF THE


HEIFER, and lay them up WITHOUT THE CAMP in a clean place, and it
shall be kept for the CONGREGATION OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FOR A
WATER
OF SEPARATION:

IT IS PURIFICATION FO SIN". (Numbers


19:9)

Within those words lies the destiny of MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS WHO


WILL
NEVER SEE HEAVEN. Christians are PART OF ISRAEL, and they are PART OF
THE CONGREGATION OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL. We may no partake in the
literal
killing of red heifers, of burning them, of smashing the burnt remains into
a fine powder, or of sprinkling that powder into a jug of water, but
WHAT IT MEANS HAS NEVER CHANGED, AND IF WE ARE NOT PURIFIED
BY THE
LITERAL, REAL, EXPERIENTIAL SPRINKLING OF AGAPE LOVE, WHICH
SEPARATES US, WE
PERISH IN OUR SINS.

Keep in mind that water is a symbol of agape love, and the ashes are Christ.
Remember back to the TREE THAT MADE THE BITTER WATERS SWEET. Here is
another
form of the same thing, the ashes in the water, MAKE THE WATER AGAPE LOVE,
which in turn, WHEN BESTOWED UPON YOU, SEPARATE YOU FROM THE
REST OF
MAN, AND PURIFY YOU FROM SIN.

"And the CLEAN PERSON (JESUS CHRIST) SHALL SPRINKLE


UPON
THE UNCLEAN (you and I) ON THE THIRD DAY, AND ON THE SEVENTH
DAY: AND ON
THE SEVENTH DAY HE SHALL PURIFY HIMSELF, AND WASH HIS
CLOTHES, AND
BATHE HIMSELF IN WATER, AND SHALL BE CLEAN AT EVEN.(Numbers
19:19)

Notice that it is a CLEAN PRIEST that sprinkles the UNCLEAN ON THE


THIRD DAY. Our HIGH PRIEST IS JESUS CHRIST. It will be proven that
Jesus Christ HIMSELF grants the true believer AGAPE LOVE after walking the
narrow way. Notice that there ARE TWO SPRINKLINGS AND A BATHING ON THE
SEVENTH DAY. The first sprinkling represents Christ coming to the believer
with the BESTOWMENT OF AGAPE LOVE. The second sprinkling and
BATHING IN THE WATER represent the RESURRECTION RAPTURE, in the
which, the real believer is TOTALLY PURIFIED, for the knowledge of good and
evil is, WHOLLY REMOVED, AND THE PURE AND COMPLETE AGAPE LOVE
IS
BROUGHT BACK INTO BEING, BACK TO OUR ORIGINAL CONDITION
PRIOR TO THE FALL OF
MAN The first sprinkling leads to the second. It is a PROGRESSION
UPWARDS.

Now comes the warning and this warning is found throughout all of Scripture.
If you refuse to do as commanded, you will be CUT OFF, from the congregation
of Israel. The vast majority of Christians were CUT OFF from the
congregation of Israel, they never saw heaven, they never saw any of it at
all, but instead, eternal ruin. THEY WERE NEVER SPRINKLED WITH THE WATER
OF
SEPARATION, NOT EVEN ONCE, LET ALONE TWICE.

"BUT THE MAN THAT SHALL BE UNCLEAN, AND SHALL NOT


PURIFY
HIMSELF, THAT SOUL SHALL BE CUT OFF FROM AMONG THE
CONGREGATION,
BECAUSE HE HATH DEFILED THE SANCTUARY OF THE LORD; THE
WATER OF
SEPARATION HAS NOT BEEN SPRINKLED UPON HIM; HE IS UNCLEAN
(Numbers
19:20)

Notice who it is that is to do the purifying, Christ commanded YOU to WALK


the narrow way. He did not say He would do it for you. Christ commanded YOU
to pick up YOUR CROSS. He did not say He would do it for you. OBEDIENCE IS
IN THE DOING OF IT, not the talking about it. There is something the
BELIEVER MUST DO THAT THE VAST MAJORITY FOR WHATEVER REASONS,
DO NOT DO.
Because they will not do I, THEY NEVER COME TO CHRIST IN TRUTH, WHO
HOLDS AGAPE LOVE, WHICH IS THE WATER OF SEPARATION.

That which purifies the believer is SOUL DEATH, as we will show you. The
believer is to die to his NATURAL LOVE and be RESURRECTED TO A NEW FORM
OF
LOVE, AGAPE. Agape love is the WATER OF SEPARATION. Notice how it is worded,
for it is important. The unclean person, the one who REFUSES TO
PURIFY HIMSELF HAS NOT BE SPRINKLED WITH THE WATER. Has NOT
BEEN
SPRINKLED means NEVER HAS. It was not the first time, so the second time
CANNOT take place. The second washing is contingent upon the first washing.
The Lord could not say that HE HAD NOT BEEN SPRINKLED if the first
sprinkling had taken place.

This confirms what happened to the man. THEY NEVER CAME TO AGAPE LOVE
BESTOWMENT, WHICH IS THE FIRST SPRINKLING. They were never
SEPARATED unto
God, never made holy. NEVER REGENERATED. Because they were
never regenerated, THEY REMAIN UNCLEAN AND NO UNCLEAN PERSON, AND
NO
CAN REMAIN IN THE SANCTUARY OF THE LORD. The important thing here is that
IF
A MAN WILL NOT PURIFY HIMSELF BY THE WATER OF SEPARATION, HE IS
CUT OFF. The
many were 'cut' off because they were not regenerated; they did not possess
AGAPE LOVE.

"Not by WORKS OR RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH WE HAVE DONE, BUT


ACCORDING TO HIS MERCY HE SAVED US, BY THE WASHING OF
REGENERATION,
and RENEWING of the HOLY GHOST," (Titus 3:5)

The WASHING IN THE WATER OF AGAPE LOVE IS REGENERATION. THE


WASHING
IN THE WATER OF AGAPE LOVE IS THE RENEWING OF THE HOLY GHOST.
THE
WASHING OF REGENERATION IS THE SPRINKLING OF THE WATERS OF
SEPARATION.
Without it you perish.

MANNA

Another word that is a code word for agape is MANNA, and the associated word
BREAD. We will study the word 'manna', and I suggest you do a word study on bread,
for one will find it refers to the ESSENCE OF
SPIRITUAL LIFE, AGAPE LOVE.

"And when the children of Israel saw (the manna) they said
one to another, It is Manna: FOR THEY WIST NOT WHAT IT WAS.
AND MOSES SAID UNTO THEM, THIS IS THE BREAD WHICH THE LORD
HATH
GIVEN YOU TO EAT
(Exodus 16:15)

The word 'manna' is 'man' in the Hebrew, which means WHATNESS, OR WHAT IS
IT? It is like our word MYSTERY, SECRET, UNKNOWN, ALIEN. It was nothing
like anything ever seen before upon earth. IT CAME FROM HEAVEN, IT WAS
UNKNOWN, AND IT HAD TO BE EATEN. This has tremendous significance for us,
for IT IS SYMBOLIC OF AGAPE LOVE, WHICH IS AN UNKNOWN, A MYSTERY,
A
SECRET, AN ALIEN FORM OF LOVE. Notice also that Moses compares the manna to
bread, and calls IT BREAD FROM THE LORD.

"And Moses said unto Aaron, TAKE A POT, AND PUT AN OMER FULL OF
MANNA THEREIN, AND LAY IT BEFORE THE LORD, TO BE KEPT FOR
YOUR GENERATIONS."
Exodus 16:33

And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is the called
THE HOLIEST OF ALL;
WHICH HAD THE GOLDEN CENSER, AND THE ARK OF THE COVENANT
OVERLAID AROUND ABOUT WITH GOLD, WHEREIN WAS THE GOLDEN
POT THAT HAD MANNA.
AND ARRON'S ROD THAT BUDDED,
AND THE TABLES OF THE COVENANT;"
(Hebrews 9:3-4)

This manna that rained down from heaven was so vital to ISRAEL THAT IT WAS
PLACED IN THE ARK OF THE COVENANT. The ark was located in the HOLY OF
HOLIES, in which was also the tables of law, which Christ reduced down to
AGAPE LOVE, and Aaron's rod that budded represents DEATH TO LIFE all of which
are representative of REGENERATION. Could the strait gate and narrow
way be the WAY INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES WHEREIN THE PRESENCE OF
THE LORD AND HIS AGAPE LOVE ARE FOUND?

"AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL


DID EAT MANNA FORTY YEARS UNTIL
THEY CAME TO THE LAND INHABITED;
THEY DID EAT MANNA, UNTIL THEY CAME UNTO THE
BORDERS OF THE LAND OF CANAAN (THE PROMISED LAND)
Exodus 16:35
This verse is quite crucial, for it ties in to the waters of separation, and gives us another
clue as to how AGAPE LOVE WORKS IN THE SALVATION PROCESS. Manna
represents AGAPE LOVE. When a believer has been obedient and walked
the narrow way, he is bestowed agape love, which is 'life' as we will prove in this series.
The Christian is to EAT OF AGAPE LOVE UNTIL HE COMES TO THE
PROMISED LAND, WHICH IS IN FACT RESURRECTION/RAPTURE. The true
Christian who is regenerated is walking in the WILDERNESS OF EARTH, A DESERT
IN WHICH THERE IS NO AGAPE LOVE. Remember that the water of separation was
sprinkled ON THE THIRD DAY AND AGAIN ON THE SEVENTH DAY, which
represents the MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST. There was then a 4 DAY PERIOD
OF TIME BETWEEN THE SPRINKLING AND THE FINAL BATHING IN THE
WATER. Now we find 40 years. Do the four days and the 40 years represent the same
thing, that is
FROM THE TIME OF REGENERATION TO THE RESURRECTION/RAPTURE? IS
IT THE SAME ISRAEL, CROSSING THE JORDAN AFTER 40 YEARS IN THE
WILDERNESS?

"BUT NOW IS OUR SOUL DRIED AWAY AND THERE IS NOTHING BUT
THIS MANNA BEFORE OR EYES." (Numbers 11:6)

This verse is far deeper than one might think. The complaint of Israel is
that 'THEIR SOUL HAD DRIED AWAY, AND ALL THERE WAS IS THIS MANNA'
The
apostle Paul complained that WHEN THE COMMANDMENT CAME, SIN REVIVED
AND HE
DIED. His soul dried up, died. THERE WAS NOTHING, BUT MANNA, "Not I that
liveth, but Christ in me." When AGAPE LOVE COMES TO THE BELIEVER, HIS
SOUL
HAD DRIED AWAY. It will be proven in our study of the NARROW WAY WHICH IS
THE WAY OF THE SOUL DRYING UP.

'AND HE HUMBLED THEE, AND SUFFERED THEE TO HUNGER, AND


FED THEE WITH MANNA, WHICH THOU KNEWEST NOT, NEITHER DID
THY FATHERS
KNOW;[ THAT HE MIGHT MAKE THEE KNOW THAT MAN DOES NOT LIVE
BY BREAD
ONLY, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDETH OUT OF THE MOUTH
OF THE LORD, DOTH
MAN LIVE.' (Deuteronomy 8:3)

Scripture proves that the narrow way is a way of INNER HEART


HUMBLING, and there is here the condition of HUNGER, as we fund in
ATHIRST FOR WATER. The precondition of being athirst, of being hungry leads
to the humbling, which leads to MANNA BEING GRANTED. Notice again that the
MANNA WAS AN UNKNOWN, A MYSTERY, A SECRET OF GOD, A HIDDEN
THING.
The drying up of the soul, FORCES ONE TO CHRIST, who is the only supplier of
this mystery of agape love. So AGAPE LOVE IS A HIDDEN THING TO
MAN.
Regenerate man does not live by food and drink alone, but by a SPIRITUAL
POWER. If man would READ THE BIBLE, AND SEARCH FOR THE MEANING
BEHIND WHAT
IT SAYS, HE WOULD FIND THE POWER OF AGAPE LOVE.

"I AM THAT BREAD OF LIFE, YOUR FATHERS DID EAT MANNA


IN
THE WILDERNESS AND ARE DEAD.
THIS IS THE BREAD WHICH COMETH DOWN FROM HEAVEN, THAT A
MAN MAY EAT
THEREOF, AND NOT DIE. I AM THE LIVING BREAD WHICH CAME DOWN
FROM
HEAVEN: IF ANY MAN EAT OF THIS BREAD, HE SHALL LIVE FOREVER:"
John 6: 48-51

Jesus is comparing Himself to the manna of the Fathers, showing them that the bread that
their fathers ate was symbolic of something much deeper. They died, but now, if any man
eat of the MANNA OF CHRIST, HIS AGAPE LOVE, THEY WILL LIVE FOREVER.

"THIS IS THAT BREAD WHICH CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN: NOT AS


YOUR FATHERS DID EAT MANNA, AND ARE DEAD, HE THAT EATETH OF
THIS BREAD SHALL
LIVE FOREVER".
John 6: 58

Those that heard it said it was a "HARD SAYING, WHO CAN HEAR IT?" In other
words, who can understand what this Jesus is teaching us, we do not understand, Jesus
then in verse 63 explains that THIS IS A SPIRITUAL THING,
IT IS THE SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH, which is proven to be that agape love is
SPIRITUAL LIFE, MANNA FROM HEAVEN, BREAD FROM HEAVEN.

"HE THAT HATH AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT SAITH UNTO
THE CHURCHES: TO HIM THAT OVERCOMETH, WILL I GIVE TO EAT OF
THE HIDDEN
MANNA..." (Revelation 2:17)

Here we have a direct tie to OVERCOMING TO HIDDEN MANNA. The


fact that Jesus says it is HIDDEN verifies the Old Testament concept of the word 'manna'.
AN UNKNOWN QUANTITY TO MANKIND, JUST AS JESUS CONFIRMS THAT
AGAPE LOVE IS WHOLLY UNKNOWN TO ALL MANKIND, EXCEPT THE
CHOSEN 'FEW' They have walked the narrow way to find the mystery behind the
meaning of the word 'life', agape love. THE MYSTERY of God and Christ. Only the
OVERCOMER is granted the HIDDEN MYSTERY MANNA. The rejected of Christ,
the vast majority of Christians, NEVER were granted to eat of the HIDDEN MANNA,
They were never OVERCOMERS, they were never GRANTED AGAPE LOVE.

We could go through each word that is a code word for agape love and prove it all out,
but that would make another book. What I will do instead is give you the key words, to
prove it out to your selves, so that when you read these words, you will understand more
about what those verses are saying to
you. The most common code words for agape love are: LIGHT, GLORY, TRUTH, LIFE,
SALT, REST, BREAD, MANNA, RIGHTEOUSNESS, LIBERTY, UNITY, UNION,
FRUIT, KNOW, SEE SIGHT, BORN, REGENERATION, REFRESHING, QUICKEN,
and QUICKENETH, they all refer either directly to agape love, OR THE RESULTS OF
THE BESTOWMENT OF AGAPE LOVE, for agape love is the essence behind holiness,
sanctification, justification, righteousness, liberty, etc.

In the fourth chapter of this series on DARK LIGHT we will move to the fall of mankind,
and we will prove that THE FALL OF MANKIND WAS REAL, LITERAL, AND HAD
DEVASTATING RESULTS; IT UTTERLY SEPARATED MAN FROM HIS CREATOR,
IT ERECTED A GULF OF SILENCE THAT MAN HAS BEEN ATTEMPTING TO
BRIDGE BY RELIGION AND PHILOSOPHY THROUGHOUT THE AGES . The
anguishing cries
of mankind echo down through the corridors of history, rebounding and reverberating off
the stony walls of space and time. His cries remain unanswered. In his face blow the cold
winds of silence and emptiness. He lives but a short time, his life is full of trouble and
sorrow, and he DIES, and goes into oblivion. He watches little babies wither in pain and
die. He
watches you'd men and women die in anguish. He watches the elderly and fears his time
is soon to come.

From out of his mind he runs, and tries to escape that which he cannot escape. He
occupies his mind with war, with machines, with business, with sex, with ANYTHING so
he does not have to face the silence of the grave. He fears death but refuses to admit it.
He is a victim, he cannot escape.
Philosophies have attempted to answer the silence, but to no avail, they are vain.
Religions have attempted to pierce the darkness, but they are too total vanity.

Jesus said for us to come to Him. He said what if we would, if we would obey the
Gospel, if we would 'keep his saying' and do the 'will of the Father' that we COULD
KNOW TH TRUTH BEHIND ALL OF LIFE, BEHIND THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.
He said that this truth 'would set us free'. Jesus said we could JUMP THE GULF OF
SILENCE, JUMP THE VASTNESS OF OUTER SPACE, PENETRATE THE DEPTHS
OF INNER SPACE, AND JUMP THE GIGANTIC GULF THAT SEPARATES MAN
FROM HIS CREATOR. I am here to tell you He was telling the truth, You too can meet
God, and you too can know WITH ABSOLUTE EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE
THE TRUTHS OF
GOD. Any person on earth can gaze into the beauty of God and Jesus Christ. They can
stare into the depth of eternity past and eternity future. They can see in a very literal way
the vastness of the AGAPE LOVE OF GOD.
THEY CAN RE-ENTER UNION WITH THE GODHEAD.

The cross of Jesus Christ is the ONLY BRIDGE we have to jump the silent gulf between
man and God. There is no other name under the heavens by which we we may be saved.
If we will but be obedient to his commands to PICK UP THE
CROSS, the STRIVE TO ENTER THE STRAIT GATE, to WALK THE DISTANCE OF
THE NARROW WAY, the God, in His great mercy, in His great love for the LOST
SOUL reaches down from His lofty throne in the heavens and will SPEAK TO YOU
AND I. he who created the heavens, He who keeps the stars shining and upholds the
order of the universe, WILL COME DOWN AND VISIT YOU, AND SPEAK TO YOU
AND SUP WITH YOU, AND WHEN HE DOES, YOU WILL KNOW THE MYSTERY
BEHIND ALL OF LIFE, YOU WILL HAVE JUMPED THE GULF AND YOU WILL
KNOW THE TRUE DEFINITION OF GOD, AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHO
JESUS REALLY WAS, FOR YOU WILL HAVE MET HIM AND SPOKEN TO HIM,
AND HE WITH YOU.

Do not mock his commands. Do not belittle what He says. FOR PERHAPS THE FIRST
TIME IN YOUR LIFE, PICK UP YOUR SCRIPTURE STILL YOUR OWN HEART,
YOUR OWN VOICES, AND LET GOD SPEAK TO YOU IN HIS WISDOM. He will
teach anyone who sincerely wants to know. He will not mock sincere questions. He loves
you with a love so deep you cannot fathom it unless you see it, and when you see
it the MYSTERY OF THE AGES will be yours to keep.

I know it for a fact, for I was called out of darkness and into HIS LIGHT. I entered the
strait gate and I walked the narrow way unto death. I went down to the pit, and I heard
the screams of the lost, and I FELT AND KNEW THE STENCH OF DEATH AND
ALONENESS. I sat in the darkness of the pit, watching as Satan struggled with Christ
over my soul. I watched almost as an innocent bystander these two gigantic forces in our
universe FIGHT IT OUT OVER WHO WAS GOING TO CLAIM DOMINION OVER
MY SOUL.

When all hope was lost, when everything was fading into total oblivion, then Christ
came. He showed me WHY I was a lost soul, why I had been damned for eternity. He
revealed to me the beauty of AGAPE LOVE. He showed me the secret of the ages. He
spoke to me, he called me by name, just as the Bible says He does to all the TRUE
SHEEP, IT IS LITERAL, IT MEANS WHAT IS SAYS. The sheep know the voice of
their shepherd, and they will not follow another. He asked me if I would AGAPE LOVE,
and when I said YES to
Him, he bestowed it upon me. He came into my heart, I felt Him move right in, and my
entire life did a reversal.

The Scripture is WHOLLY TRUE; IT MEANS EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS IT MEANS.


BELIEVE IT, AND BECOME OBEDIENT TO IT, AND YOU SHALL LIVE. You will
pass for death unto life. You will then KNOW what the very few know. THE CHOICE IS
YOURS.
