While in study on love and what it is, I came across a passage of scripture that contained revelation not just about love but communion as well! Read Romans 13:8-14 in The Passion Translation... In this scripture (v-11) it says it's urgent and strategic for us to live in the light! So wake up, time is fleeting and our full salvation is at hand. Full salvation translates as complete wholeness in the Greek, the same as the last book in the bible...Revelation. This scripture (v-12) also says darkness is dissolving as a new day dawns, our destiny! Darkness can be described as "old clothes," as we put on "new clothes" of light in this new day! This new day will find us surrounded by light as we lose the old and live in the new! What a trade! Verse 14 says We fully immerse ourselves INTO the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One where even our DNA is changed and we have a new identity. This is a definition of what communion (bread and wine) does for us, changes us from the inside out, even the frequency of our DNA! In verse 8 we see to don't "owe" anything to anyone, but to love one another. By learning to love you fulfill the law. It is interesting the Aramaic word for "owe" is khob and the word for love is khab. So, love is light! In the Greek there are three different words for love, Agape, Phileo and Eros. Agape is the highest, purest, God kind of love. It's supernatural love, unconditional, undeserved, compassionate that continues to flow even when it is not returned. Phileo is the kind of love friends and family have. We get Philadelphia , brotherly love, from the root word of phileo. and thirdly we get eros, which doesn't have to mean love, but refers to sexual desire and giving sexual pleasure. Love doesn't just generate light it is light! In these days, the only protection we have is the light of love. It will blind your enemies, so that they will be changed...like Paul on the road to Damascus! Keep on loving, it's the right thing to do.
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
