THE TAVEAU D’ARCY CREATIVE LEADERSHIP ONGOING ABIDING, HOLY BIBLE RELATIONSHIPS
“And to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.” EPHESIANS 3:19
“Where is Love? Does it fall from skies above?” From the Musical OLIVER
” He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” I JOHN 4:8
“…. Knowledge puffeth up, but love builds up.” I CORINTHIANS 8:1b
PREMISE FOR DISCERNMENT, SELAH:
Q. WHO IS THE REAL GOD?
Q. WHAT IS TRUE ACCEPTING COVERING GOD’S REAL LOVE?
Q.WHAT IS “KNOWLEDGE?”
Q. WHAT DOES THE BIBLE PLACE THE HIGHEST VALUE ON: Ministry, Personal, Real Life RELATIONSHIPS or that which is LEARNED AND KNOWN?
LET US EVALUATE, PONDER AND EXAMINE:
Q. WHAT IS KNOWLEDGE?
A. Information, education, acquired wisdom, inner revelation
2. WHAT IS ACCEPTING, PARENTING, SHEPHERDING, COVERING REAL LOVE?
BIBLE LOVE (all the LOVE interpretations included by the NEW TESTAMENT
1.Storge: akin to natural parenting,parent -child compassionate/empathetic real facet of LOVE
- Philia: faithful/loyalty brotherly love, affectionate regard, comraderie
Agape: unconditional, ever accepting love that God has for every single created human being, the kind of Love which God wants hero role modeled in “fellowshipping” among the true born again saints; charity (I Corinthians 13 offers an example)
Eros: (although not mentioned officially in the New Testament, eros is part of God designed natural human real life): this is romantic, sensual,sexual,physical-emotional, natural love, intimate type of real love.
PART 2 BASIC REAL LIFE MINISTRY DISCERNMENTS OF THE “ACCEPTING LOVE OF GOD..expressing GOD THE ETERNAL FATHER’S NATURE”
A. THERE IS “Sweet Baby Jesus” real Love: unconditionally accepting, forgiving, non biased, regarding, turn the other cheek forgiving True Eternal Love.
B. THERE IS “Grown Up Messiah Jesus” purposely walking into the Pharisee Temple where His own spiritual ministry founding high priests were not making GOD FOLLOWING more about MAMMON CHASING. This REAL UP FRONT type of faith in GOD’S TOUGH LOVE” was very surprising, but never used any sort of demeaning, violent, accusing or abusive behavior.
NOTE This SECOND TYPE of GOD’S AUTHENTIC REAL LOVE may also be found exhibited by GOD THE FATHER “up front confronting” “attempting to hold His first BORN HUMAN SON (Adam) directly ACCOUNTABLE in the Garden of Eden (GENESIS 3:9)
AND this type of GOD’S TOUGH (RESPECTFUL) REAL LOVE is also noted in the following New Testament “fellowshipping among the saints” big real life leader (non demeaning) illustrations:
ASIDE: PLEASE NOTE THAT EACH of the following New Testament BIBLE VERSES have to do primarily with ABIDING ONGOING, HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS..
1. MINISTRY/LEADER, MATURE LAY MATTHEW 18:15-18
“Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.”
2. THE BOOK OF ACTS BIG STORY OF ANNAIAS AND SAPHIRA
READ IN CONTEXT IN THE BOOK OF ACTS 5:1-11
FINALLY: WHAT DOES THE BIBLE PLACE MORE VALUE ON?
HERE ROLE MODELING “God’s Authentic Real Life Leadership LOVE?” or “Book learning, educational degrees, acquired life experiences, revealed and imparted wisdom, and exceeding information?
THE FINAL APOSTOLIC LEADER BOTTOM (TRAINING?) MATURE LINE:
“To know the LOVE OF GOD which PASSES (even a WEALTH) of KNOWLEDGE…..that you may be FILLED with the LOVE of (the True Living One) GOD.” BOOK OF EPHESIANS 3:19
AND FOR ALL CHRIST FOLLOWING MINISTRY FELLOWSHIPS
ASKING: FROM GOD’S POINT OF VIEW..WHAT IS THE MAIN OVERALL PURPOSE FOR “5 FOLD OFFICE MINISTRY” and “ACCEPTING, FOLLOWING” THE LORD JESUS CHRIST..
Q. IS THE CHRISTIAN ABIDING, FELLOWSHIPPING LIFE MORE ABOUT “LEARNING, ACHIEVING AND GOOD WORKS DOING, MINISTRY BUILDING?”
Q. or mainly about “PROMOTING, ENCOURAGING, ONGOING MAINTAINING ALL HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS?”
SELAH..as all of this is OPEN ENDED…
