Does anybody even Love Jesus anymore, If they do, they sure don't claim it, as if HE has only become a Picture on The wall of Their Mind.

Isaiah 29:13
"Therefore the Lord said: "These people draw near to Me with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. Their worship of Me is but rules taught by men."

It seems even ON "TalkJesus" now, He has become only a "Closet love" something a lot of people just call on, when trouble comes, sickness come. But Manifested in an heart felt love, a sweet aroma of "True Love" that is not compared by any other, is slipping away. And when they talk about HIM, His name is mention, in a small way, a "Luke warmness". with no type of, The Flavor of Love in their voices nor in their Spirit, No sweetness in the tone of their voices when they speak HIS name. "at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow" "There will be those, who bows down, by The Sweetness of HIS Name."

Oh' Sweet Jesus. Just maybe, when others mention Your Name, the Holy OIl does not pour on their soul. Sweet Jesus, and they feel not the warmness as he coats the soul! FOR GOD The Father, has done something to "THAT NAME". OH, I LOVE HIM! and I love to mention HIS NAME! I am not ashamed to mention HIS name! No matter where i am at! And the crowd, always turn around, to see what the commotion is about, and I tell the strangers, it is The Name of JESUS and how He coats my soul!
I am an embarrassment to my wife of 30 plus years, and my two youngest children who are "30 and 31", I might declare HIS name anywhere, where they consider, it is not proper:pensive:. ........But when that Honey OIL,,,,, start pouring on my Soul. in the airports, motels, hotels, grocery stores, malls, walking in the park, The sweetness of The Name of JESUS !

"Talking about David's embarrassment, "Micahal's" his 1st wife how he dance in the street. And you have seen nothing yet, when that Oil Pours on my soul.:pensive: I cannot hold, my peace. Oh'' The Sweetness of JESUS:pensive: Hot Diddy dog. ........I have been told to "Shut up" on many occasions to shut up and do that in "The Church" on a Sunday Morning......... in anger, By People of My own color,
MY response: "I Don't Go to a Church neither is my name on a Church ROLL! AND I don't have any Attention to place my name there, but i sure do love JESUS! And I am not ashamed to EXHALT HIS Name, No matter where i am. Because i am a "Child of The Living GOD" and I love to call His name. Now if you want to strike me down for that , go ahead and do it now:pensive: I will take one for The Team.

In my life i have had days like that. many have said:, I want what you got, but not that much:sob: And we would laugh, even my wife have said that. My brother The Pastor have said, You use to be a "Radical"! The Preachers used to laugh at my brother when He was a young Minster, when i got to "The Podium" I would tear them apart, delivering The Unadulterated Word of The LIVING GOD.

For way over 20 years now He has been a Leading Pastor in The Metropolitan Detroit area and Vicinity" and the others became nothing but lap dogs! Oh he cried a many days, But he did what i told him to do. He went, where i told him to go. For i am not the "Pastor" material, I am too bold, a "Radical" and retired, a long time now. I was a BULL, "JOHN KNOX", but without The "Broadsword"on his side, The only difference I was , a "Warrior" called myself an "Augustinian MONK"! Schooled in The Martial Arts, and they knew it, An unruly OX, undisciplined to the core! That had to be "Discipline" by GOD.:pensive:

I would not take no male trash! When i was in "Seminary" this United States Senator, son in-law fronted me in class, with his boldness, about a book, later on he said to me, he told GOD "Lord, i have mess with the WRONG ONE" You scared the "Hill" out of me, And I thought i was Bad! You made me quake in my shoes! LOL, We became the best of Friends, I turn down his offer to be his assistant Pastor to him, in The "Renovation' of the sum of "12 Million dollars" to a church, cash money, no debt. I didn't want "the Bondage" when i came to Christ, I became His Freeman, He whom, HE sets Free, is Free in deed! All shackles fell off. And I am to bold, and not "Pastoral" material. But i Pastored for awhile. LOL, and I knew it!....... LATER THEY CLAIMED "I was a "Pastor of Pastors". They claimed! and when they would come to me, i would make them cry! LOL! They would get mad with me and come back for more! LOL! ....My wife would say how do you talked to those "Pastors like that". I would tell her they come back don't they? ........She would go silent! But in her heart......labeled me as a bully:pensive: But she never heard the stories of what they had done, and how they would always come back and say, thank you, for telling me the TRUTH when others would not.:pensive: She never knew the stories. I guess i was A Pastors Pastor. I don't know. But GOD does, but i know this, it will be revealed around, at The Coronation Table.:pensive: When we sit down with JESUS.

Another witnessing in "the Name of JESUS" coming from "an unruly OX that had to be "discipline" by "GOD our Father" very hard and not given over to Death.

Saying you love someone is easy. Living like you love them isn't always easy. How did Jesus say we should show Him we love Him?

John 14:15; "If you love Me, keep My commandments.
John 14:21; 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."

1Jn 5:3; For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.

If we say we love Jesus, but don't obey Him... He calls us hypocrites.

Mark 7:6; He answered and said to them, "Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: 'THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME. ( Isa 29:13; )

Then there is the question of "how much" do I need to love Him? (I wonder if you ask your wife or girlfriend this question?)

Deut 6:5; You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.

Matt 22:37; Jesus said to him, 'YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.'
Mark 12:30; AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.' This is the first commandment.

If you say you love Jesus, but don't keep the commandments, you're a liar. Plain and simple.

1Jn 2:4; He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

John 15:10; 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.
John 15:14; You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

There is a popular song - the lyrics say something like.
Oh the reckless never ending love of God, I couldn't earn it, I don't deserve it.

Well first of all God isn't reckless. God doesn't love everyone unconditionally.
People mention "agape" love. But the definition of agape doesn't say unconditionally anywhere.

Mal 1:3; But Esau I have hated, And laid waste his mountains and his heritage For the jackals of the wilderness."
Rom 9:13; As it is written, "JACOB I HAVE LOVED, BUT ESAU I HAVE HATED."

We certainly don't deserve the Love of God, but does the Bible really say we can't earn it? No, it says we can.

John 14:21; 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."
John 15:10; 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.

I would add as you say not "unconditionally Love" some render it "unfailing Love" the better translation.. God is love and has the power to perform it in us. But God whose name is Jealous seeing he owns all thing will not share in the glory . His love as the first work our hardest is .God is longsuffering from the beginning to the end and because he is patient then building on love can be kind ,etc as the conditions of Love

To the extent that agape is a decision that says: "I will love you regardless of your condition and irrespective of your reaction", it is unconditional, sacrificial, benevolent, charitable love

Well, said B-A-C, Now all that what You have said and quoted, and how sweet it relates to The Title Thread.
Now if you please just walk with me.:pensive: Say for an instant, I am going to use a form of "Anthropomorphic words" and place it, in a "Biblical Terminology". And those words are "Newtons" Law of "Inertia". Now let us take it out of the "humanity" and place it into " 100% Divinity. NOW, what you have quoted what will it produce! or out come when you keep HIS Love and do what HE said to do? I believe you got this. and it is going to bless you! for you do know, how I roll.

B-A-C, Our Holy Father has bless you and not as The world, and The Nominal christians who knows the Blessing of GOD .... Walk with Him, a precious jewel that HE has place in HIS hand. Your are written down in another book, and He remembers your name. Walk with Him, and He haves something for you. Just liken to the family that obeyed their father, that was recorded in the Old Testament and GOD said ,I will bless them with a"special Blessing" throughout their generations to come.
You do not have to believe or understand He is going to do it, because, He is, who HE is.:pensive:
