Save Time and Preach Like Never Before. Try the new
the Gospel of John as well as the Epistles of John. This is the point that John wants to drive home. This is what of all the things that he saw JESUS do, this is the thing that impressed him the most. This is what left such an indelible mark upon him. This is what so radically impressed him that he could see that JESUS was the MESSIAH, that HE was Y’SHUA ha MASHIYACH.

The most important point of the Bible is that GOD is! The next most important point may be that HE loves us. HE created us to express HIS love and to have us love HIM.

When Lucifer fell, as noted in Isa 14:11-15 and took with him 1/3 of the angels, he created a void in GOD. This void is comprised of missing love, that portion of HIS essence that had been used to create those angels. Those angels, just like everything else, were created out of GOD’s being, out of HIS essence. HE spoke them into existence out of the only thing, which existed before anything existed and that is HIS being.
This is expressed in another way in John 1:1-5;
Jhn 1:1 In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD.
Jhn 1:2 The same was in the beginning with GOD.
Jhn 1:3 All things were made by HIM; and without HIM was not any thing made that was made.
Jhn 1:4 In HIM was life; and the life was the light of men.
Jhn 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

From this, it is easy to see that the WORD, which we understand from further reading in the Book of John, was JESUS. Thus we also see the fact that JESUS was the very essence of The FATHER, that he was “love” incarnate.

Then HE created mankind as an expression of HIS love. HE did so in order that those who accepted HIS love would return it unto HIM. In returning this love to HIM we would thereby be fulfilling or completing HIM. As HE is our Shalom or our completeness we therefore would complete HIM as well, in a sense!

With that said we must understand the Greek in order to understand what “love” is as we read it. It is not the "sloppe agape" that is shown by most kids in love or even what is said to be love by most “church-folk”. In John 15:9 we find the truth of love. Jhn 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. This kind of love is an unconditional love. A love that gives but does so not give because it is "really" expecting to receive in return! I emphasize “really” because it is almost impossible for us to conceive of one without some level of the other and because there does exist some level of expectation. That is to say that GOD gave and did or does expect to receive in return. I don’t think I’m making this really very clear but I hope you can find my point in this that it is to be considered an unconditional love. You give love because you are love! That is your essence. You give love whether you are going to get it back or not. You give this love simply because that is what you are and it is essentially all you can do.
