Love One Another

  When you stand before God on Judgment Day, It’s not what sins you have committed or not committed that will be judged. But how much you have loved others.

  • John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
  Many teach that you don't have to do anything, in order to be Saved. And that is True, But i will tell you the Truth, Once you are SAVED you will do things because you will have LOVE in your heart. It is True you do not have to have Works to get Saved. But if you ARE Saved, you most deffinately have good works.

Have you fed the hungry?

Have you clothed the naked?

Have you visited the sick?

Have you visited anyone in prison?

Have you given to the poor?

Have you helped someone in need?

Have you helped someone in need that isn’t family?

Have you helped strangers?

Have you volunteered your time to shelters?

Have you helped the Homeless in some way?

Have you given to charities?

How have you loved others?

  Know you no that when you stand before Jesus Christ on Judgment Day, you are going to be judged on HOW MUCH YOU HAVE LOVED OTHERS? How many of the above questions did you answer YES too? Think not, that you will enter into Heaven because you do more Good than Bad, that you don’t do the really bad sins, and that you are basically a good person.

  You have three people, the first lives by himself in a small cabin on top of a mountain, with no electric and lives off the land. The second lives in a town with his family, goes to work every day to pay the bills and support his family, all his money and time is devoted to his own self and his own family, and the things of his own house. The third man works every day to take care of his family, and searches out people to help, gives to the poor, volunteers at homeless shelters, donates to charities, gives to the church to help the community, supports missionaries overseas, helps anyone that asks him for help, and would give the shirt off his back to help you. Tell me, which of these three when they stand before God, will be judged as LOVING ONE ANOTHER? The first, loves no one at all, and commits no sins at all. The second loves his and his own. The third loves his and his own and loves others as well. Which of the three is the Kingdom of Heaven looking for? I tell you the Truth and do not lie, the Kingdom of Heaven is looking for those who love one another.

  Jesus Himself teaches us that. Consider:
  • Matthew 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory (Judgment Day), and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. (They loved one another) 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. (They did not love one another) 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
  You can take care of yourself and support your own family perfectly and still be considered a goat, because you failed to love others. Wicked people take care of themselves and support their own families. Know you not it is written:
  • Luke 6:32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
  So don’t think you are just and righteous, because you take care of your family only, and do not love others. For the wicked and the unsaved take care of their families as well, what more do you do then they? Please don’t misunderstand me, Taking care of your own family is important, but not taking care of your family ONLY, and not loving others as well.

  Do you claim Jesus is your Savior and Lord? Do you claim to be Saved by Him? Do you love Him?
  • John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
  Jesus tells us what His commandment is:
  • John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
  The Beloved Apostle John told what His commandments are as well:
  • I John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
  Do you receive whatsoever you ask in prayer? If not, maybe you are not keeping His Commandments, namely to LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

  Again, I will tell you the Truth, and I have the Spirit of God, when you stand before God on Judgment Day, it’s not what sins you have committed or not committed that will be judged, you will be judged on how much you have loved others. So the question then is, How much have you love others, what do you do for others? How do you help your neighbors? Scriptures teach us who our neighbors are, they are anyone who is in need. How many people, who are in need, that you have helped? Or do you make excuses not to help those in need, so you do not have to help them.

  Two people see a homeless man standing on a corner asking for handouts. The first passes him by, giving him nothing, justifying his not giving by thinking to himself, He looks capable of working, he’s probably richer then I am, that man is always on that corner every day, or whatever else he can think of, to make himself feel better about not giving to the homeless man. The second person sees the homeless man, and starts to think things that the first man was thinking, but immediately reminded himself that his is a child of God, a follower of Jesus Christ, who has no respect of persons. And that he should love others, as Christ loved us, and he recalls the Bible teaching to give to those who ask of you, not to mention he recalls the Golden Rule, to do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and he thinks to himself if I were a homeless person would I want someone to give to me? So the second person pulls out his wallet and gives the homeless guy a $20.00 bill, thinking that would be a great gift for someone to give him if he were homeless.

  On Judgment Day both stand before God to be Judged. Jesus told the first man, you did not help me when I was in need. The first man said when did I not help You? Jesus answered, that day when I was on that corner and looked like a bum, and you judged me and deemed me not worthy to help. Jesus then looks at the second person and said you did help me. The second person said, When did I help you Lord? Jesus replied on that day you gave $20.00 to the homeless man, for it is written when you do unto the least of these, you do unto Me.

  Let’s assume for a moment that that homeless man was a scam artist, fully capable of working and supporting himself, and has a savings account close to a million dollars, and will retire from taking advantage of people in a month or two. Tell me, how does that change the outcome for the two people above when they stand before God on Judgment Day? It changes nothing at all. The first did not KNOW anything as a FACT concerning the homeless man, and judged the homeless man as unworthy to receive his help. The second gave, because it was the Godly thing to do, despite the unknown motives of the homeless man. Now if it were made KNOWN that he is a scam artist, then by all means, don’t give to such a one. But if you do not KNOW, then is it not better for you (especially on Judgment Day) to assume the best, that he is truly in need of help from you, and you give to him . How do you know, that God did not call that homeless person to always be a homeless person, until a certain age, so that he can test people to see who will give and who will make excuses not to give? How do you know that that homeless person is not an Angel of God, and that is the Angels job to be a homeless person. Know you not that it is written:
  • Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
  Are you an Angel expert? Can you tell who is and who is not an Angel of God, which will appear to be a stranger? How do you know that homeless person on the street is not an Angel? If God is going to test people, will His Angel look like an Angel with shining clothes, or filthy and wearing rags?
  • Titus 3:8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. … 9 …. 10 …. 11 … 12  …. 13 … 14 And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
WHY??? Why affirm constantly to be careful to maintain good works? Because we are JUDGED by our WORKS.
  • Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
  • Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
  • I Timothy 2:10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
  • I Timothy 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; 18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; 19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
  • II Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
  • II Timothy 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: (Which He most certainly will do, and not the coppersmith only, but to all who do evil)
  • Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. (do you profess to know God, yet do not help others?)
  • Titus 2:7 In all things showing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine showing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, 8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
  • Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. (are YOU zealous of good works, or like everyone else in this world?)
  • Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: (Do you provoke others to good works? You would, if you were doing them yourself)
  • James 2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? (NO!!!) 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. (Please read chapter “Faith, Works, or Both?” for more information on that topic) 18 ….. 19 …. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? (What are your works?) 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? (sure you have Faith, but where is your works?) 23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (O, Child of God, where is your Works?)
  • Romans 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds: 7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:  8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 9 Tribulation and anguish, upon EVERY soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
  • Revelations 2:19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. (Where is your charity for others? Where is your service for others? Where is your Faith for others? Where is your Patience for others? Where is your Works for others?) …. 20 …. 21 …. 22 … 23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
  • Revelations 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. (Your works do follow you, so then the question is, what are your works? What works will follow you to Judgment Day? What have you done for others lately?)
  • Revelations 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
  Woe to this generation, for they know not that they will be Judged by their works. They think believing, (Faith) is enough. They believe they do not need to have works as long as they have Faith, as long as they believe in Jesus Christ. They altogether do not realize that a person can have all the Faith in the world, and still not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. We are NOT judged by our Faith, we are Judged by our works, what we do and what do not do. True, Faith is required for Salvation, but it is the first step to Salvation, it does not end at Faith. Once a person has Faith, the next step is works. Once a person has Faith, the works should come next. You can’t do works to be Saved, don’t work that way, but you WILL have works if you are Truly are Saved. If Jesus is Truly inside of you, then you will have works. If you have Faith, well. But if you have no works with that Faith, your Faith is in vain, even though you HAVE Faith. Faith and Works go hand in hand, anyone who teaches you different doesn’t know the Word of God, and you should not listen to such a false teacher.

  Again, we are not Judged by how much Faith we have, we Judged by our works, what we do. I have not failed to tell you the Truth, if you do not love others, if you do not help others, how do you think you will be judged on Judgment Day?

  Woe to this generation which takes thought, that they will be Judged by what sins they have committed, or not committed. It is not about that at all, it is all about LOVE, how have you loved others? A person steals from someone. When that person stands before God on Judgment Day it is not the sin of theft that will be brought up, it is not breaking one of the 10 commandments that will be an issue, but the failing to love that person they stole from will be the issue that is addressed and Judged, not the sin of theft. If you loved others, you would not steal from others, if you steal from others you have failed to love them, this is what is Judged on Judgment Day.

  To seek your own is not love, consider:
  • I Corinthians 10:24 Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth.
  That is LOVE, that is what we will be judged on when we stand before God on Judgment Day, that is why so few will actually enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, for who in this generation seeks to make others happy?

  Scriptures over and over again teaches us to love one another. DO YOU?
  • John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
  • John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
  • John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
  • Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
  • I Thessalonians 4:9 But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
  • I Peter 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
  • I John 3:11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
  • I John 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
  • I John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
  • II John 1:5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
  When Jesus comes to Rapture up the Saints, He will choose those who love one another, He will leave behind those who do not love one another. The Kingdom of Heaven searches for those who love others and not those who love self, more than others. Those who belong to the Kingdom wake up thinking to themselves “What can I do for others today?” Those of the world wake up thinking “What can I do for me today?” It’s not to late, start loving others, regardless if they take advantage of you, or use you, or abuse you, or mock you, or make fun of you, or say bad things about you, love others so that you are chosen when He comes to get us. Many are called to be Christians, but only few are chosen to participate in the Kingdom to reign with Jesus Christ Himself. Those who are chosen are they that LOVE ONE ANOTHER. Do you love one another?

  There are many people who need your help, it is not God’s fault if you do not look for them. This generation takes thought “I help those who are in need if they ask me for help” or “I haven’t helped anyone because I do not know of anyone who is in need of help” I’ll tell you the Truth, if you Truly look for people to help, you will find them, if you wait for them to ask you for help, you’ll help very few. It’s not too late, start helping people, do good, be generous, be kind to people, always looking for ways to maintain good works. Remember we are judged by our works, start doing good works today.

In His Holy and Precious Name, Jesus Christ
