THE STANDARD FOR DISCERNING
WHAT THE WILL OF THE LORD IS
Ephesians 5:8-10 & Colossians 1:9,10
The standard is love, made perfect in grace (1John 4:9-12,18,19). True judgment can only be discerned in perfect love (Ephesians 4:15; 5:2,8,9,10; 1John 4:8; Mathew 7:1-5; John 7:24; 8:15). To discern God’s will on a matter, we can ask our self: What would love do or require to fulfill the greatest good in this situation? (1John 4:8; Galatians 6:10; 1Thessalonians 5:15; Ephesians 5:9,10).
Fear cannot discern what the will of love is (1John 4:18). God is love (1John 4:8). His will is discerned and fulfilled in love (Philippians 1:9-11; Galatians 5:6,14; 6:2; John 15:5,9,12). True worship can only be given in love, which involves all we think, say, and do (Mathew 5:23,24; 22:36-40; John 17:23,26). The truth of love, which is the nature and wisdom of love, is not understood in fear or motivated by fear or blinded by fear (1John 4:18; John 14:27). The wisdom of love Is free of fear and doubt of what is right in any given situation (James 3:13,17,18; 1John 4:18). Love’s truth is revealed in its pure nature and wisdom only when we are free of fear and the hatred and division that is born of fear (1John 4:18; James 3:17,18).
Jesus told His disciples that He would send the Holy Spirit in His name (carrying the essence and revelation of His divine nature, truth, and will) to dwell in their heart and teach them all truth (John 14:17,26;16:13-15). The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit breath of God’s love, which is poured into our heart through faith In Jesus atonement sacrifice on the cross, for forgiveness of our sins, and rebirth into the love of God (Romans 5:5; John 3:5-8; 2Thessalonians 3:5). It is a love that surpasses the intellect, and is discerned in spirit through a heart that is surrendered to the love of God by faith (Ephesians 3:17-19; Philippians 4:6,7).
That is why Jesus said that true worshipers must worship the Father in spirit and truth, and that to enter the kingdom of heaven, we must be born of the spiritual waters of truth and of the Holy Spirit (John 4:23,24; 2Thesalonnians 2:13; Ephesians 1:13,14; 4:21; Colossians 1:5; John 4:14,23,24; 6:35,51; 7:38). In other words, we must be born of God’s love, in our spirit, and live in its truth by the progressive revelation of His love in our heart and mind, born of His Spirit (Romans 8:14; 5:5; John 1:12,13,17). We receive God’s gift of righteousness through the sacrificial sacrifice of His eternal Son Jesus, whom God sent to die on the cross as an atonement sacrifice for our sins, and through which we are sealed in the Holy Spirit of His love by faith, when we accept Jesus as our Lord and savior through the living way of His cross, in which we are born again unto eternal life in the kingdom of heaven (1John 4:7-13,16-19; Ephesians 3:16-19; 2Thessalonians 3:5; John 3:3,5-8,14-16; 17:23,26; Hebrews 10:17-22; Titus 3:4-7; Romans 5:5,17; 6:17; 8:38,39; Colossians 1:13,14). In this way, we personally receive the truth of the Gospel of His grace, as we in faith receive Jesus as sent from God to redeem us from sin and death and reveal the kingdom of God in our heart and life, perfecting us in His love and by His love and eventually redeeming us from these bodies that are subject to death, in the resurrection to life, which takes place in Him (Colossians 1:5,6,27; 2:2,3,12; 3:14,15; Galatians 4:19; Philippians 3:21; Romans 8:22; John 1:14,16,17,18; 11:25,26; 17:23,26; 3:16; Ephesians 2:4-10; 3:16-19; 2Thessalonians 3:5; Titus 3:4,5,6; 2Corinthians 3:18; 1John 4:9-10,12,16-19).
Through faith in the gospel of grace, we are transformed in His love by the Holy Spirit as we surrender our life to receive His forgiveness and unconditional love, by which we enter the kingdom of heaven and are made perfect in His love to enter life eternal (Romans 5:2,5,10,21; 8:38,39; Galatians 2:20; 3:3,5; 4:19; Ephesians 3:16-19; 2Peter 1:5,7,9-11; 2Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 1:6,9,10,11; 1John 4:7-12,18,19; 2Thessalonians 3:5; Titus 3:4-7). We are declared sinless in God’s eyes by Jesus sacrificial death on the cross, in which He took upon Himself our sins, and gave us the gift of His righteousness by grace, when He rose from the dead free from our sins which had now been atoned for (Romans 5:8,17,21; 6:6,22,23; 1Corinthians 15:17; 2Corinthians 5:21). This is the divine exchange. Through faith, we receive His gift of righteousness, give Him our sins through repentance, and receive His unconditional love at the foot of the cross. Jesus had to die a sacrificial death on the cross for our sake, to bring us to the realization of pure unconditional love, which is free of sin, because the nature of sin is one of judgment, and is imprisoned in fear and guilt within the egoic mind, and we are not able to redeem ourselves from our judgment nature which is self created within our dualistic perception of “good” verses “evil,” both of which exist in resistance to each other within the one nature, as two sides of the same coin. Thus we are held captive within our sinful nature, which demands payment and punishment for the guilt it creates (Romans 7:15,17,22,23,24,25). That is why Jesus said He gives His life as a ransom for the forgiveness of sin (Mathew 20:28). It is not God, it is sin (the sin consciousness and guilt associated with it) that demands the ransom payment (punishment) to release its prisoners, (free the human conscience from the root cause of sin and guilt) (John 8:34,35,36; Romans 6:6,10,11,12,14,16,18,22,23; Hebrews 10:1,2,3,14,17,22; 1Peter 1:2; 3:21; 1John 3:5,8,9,10,11,14,15,16; 4:8,9,10,11,12,16,18,19; John 15: 5,9,10,12,13; 17:22,23,26).
Grace, based on the atonement sacrifice of Jesus who was free of sin, was the only way to satisfy and thereby overcome the guilt ridden consciousness of sin experienced by the ego, and its need to punish and be punished, and was the only way that the sin consciousness of mankind could be freed from itself (1John 3:5; 4:9,18,19; 1Peter 3:21; 4:1,2; 2Peter 1:3,4; Romans 6:5,6,14; Hebrews 10:1,2,3,17,18,22; 2Corinthians 5:21). The atonement sacrifice of Jesus and the power of pure unconditional love, which allowed Him to leave our sins paid for and buried in the grave, and to rise to life again free from the judgment of sin and death which He took upon Himself on our behalf, is what provides the way, truth, the life, (the direction, the revelation, and the power of life), needed for us to rise in His love out of our duality based perception of “good” and “evil” and the judgment nature it carries, and into the pure undivided nature of perfect love which is free of sin and the judgment it carries (1John 4:18,19; John 14:6; Romans 4:25; 6:3-6,14; James 1:13; 1John 1:5,6,9; 2:10; 3:2,5; 4:8-12,18,19; Psalm 36:9; Hebrews 10:14,17,18,22).
Jesus voluntary death on the cross was the greatest sacrifice that unconditional love could make to provide a living path and inner journey in Him and through Him, for our complete redemption, to set us free in His love and by the power of His resurrection from the powerful grip of the nature of sin and death (John 10:17,18; Hebrews 10:5,7,9,10,17,18,19,20,22; 1Peter 1:2,3,5,,8.9; Romans 6:4,5,6,14,17,18,23; 8:2,9,10,11,22,37-39; Ephesians 2:4-10; 3:17-20; 5:2; Galatians 4:19; 2Thessalonians 3:5; Philippians 3:9-14,20,21; 2Corinthians 3:18; 1Corinthians 1:22,23,30; 15:42,45,49,50-57; 1John 4:18,19; 2Timothy 1:10). It is unconditional love that paid the price and in the process destroyed the power of sin over our life (John 3:16; 1John 4:8-13,18,19; Romans 6:14). It is grace that unlocked the prison door of sin and sets us free from its power (Hebrews 2:9,14,15; Romans 6:6,14,18,22,23; 7:23,24,25; John 8:31,32,34,36; 1John 3:5,8; 4:18,19).
True grace does not excuse sin, it releases its grip on our life and dissolves its root system and the ground it feeds on, and the false based “reality” within human consciousness that gives birth to sin in our life (James 1:14,15; 2Peter 1:3,4; 1John 4:18; Romans 7:22-25; 8:2,13,14,15). The blood of Jesus shed at the cross was the life blood of Grace shed upon human hearts to cleanse, renew, and redeem human consciousness from the ravages of sin and self destruction (Romans 7:18,19,23,24,25; 8:2; 6:6,1419,22,23; James 1:12,13; Psalm 36:9; 2Peter 1:2,3,4). It is a precious gift to be valued above all else and received by faith and obedience to the gospel of His love, the gospel of grace (John 3:16; Romans 1:4,5; 16:25,26; Ephesians 2:4-10; Titus 3:4-7). It is the key that unlocks the door to the wisdom and truth of the kingdom of heaven within us (Colossians 2:2,3; Galatians 4:19; John 3:5,8; 14:16,17,18,19,20,23; 17:22,23,26; Luke 17:21; 2Corinthians 3:18). It is the key to the gateway of the heart that directly connects us to the truth of our being and gives us direct access to our heavenly Father and source of life (2Thessalonians 3:5; Ephesians 3:17,18,19; Hebrews 4:16; John 8:12 compare to Psalm 36:9; Hebrews 6:19,20 compare to 10:19,20,21,22; Mathew 5:8). Pure Grace is our only source of true freedom (Galatians 5:1,4,13,14; John 8:34,36). It is the only entrance into the fullness of life and into eternal life (John 10:7,9,10,27,28).
To be free from the power of what the Bible calls sin, which is actually falling short of pure love, we must become free from the judgment nature of sin which is divided against itself in its perception and creation of “good” and “evil.” Jesus died on the cross to set us free from our divided nature of “good” and “evil,” and from the judgment nature of sin (Romans 7:19,21,23,24,25; 8:1,2,3; 6:6,14). Grace takes away the power of sin to judge and condemn us (Romans 8:1,3,33,34,38,39; 5:1,2). We are not to judge and condemn anyone if we have been saved in His grace, and walk in it (2Corinthians 5:19; Ephesians 5:2; Luke 6:37).
The “counterfeit” love that our consciousness is trapped in, is in our judgment nature of “good” and “evil,” which coexist within the divided nature of sin. There, love has to be earned and thus judgment is always involved. There, love comes with a “price tag.” There, love can be gained or lost. Love and hate, “good” and “evil,” feed off each other and live off each other in the field of opposites in judgment of one another, as two sides of the same coin within the one nature.
True freedom does not exist and can never be realized within the ego’s perceived “reality” of “good” and “evil,” and the judgment it carries within its own nature. That is why Jesus said that you will always have the poor with you (John 12:8). When we judge we are looking out from within our split nature of “good” verses “evil.” We are always looking out from within our divided ego nature and trying to resolve it through the judgments we make, thus from the nature of judgment itself! Thus we live in constant judgment of ourselves and others, in self denial, in fear and in guilt of one form or another. Even though we justify the judgments we carry, they are held in a negative context within that justification and thus there is always some degree of fear, guilt or conflict in there application.
Conflict itself is fueled by fear and guilt which creates resistance. And because of our judgment nature, we are always in a state of resistance or conflict both in our “inner” world and in our “outer” world, as we strive to resolve what in our fear based perception of “reality” we ourselves create and perpetuate, even by our very efforts to resolve it! It is a delusional trap! And most of humanity at present has not been able to see or break free from the illusion or “dream” that they are living in (2Corinthians 3:17,18; 4:3,4,6; Ephesians 5:2,14). They are trapped in the “matrix,” which is the world of illusion.” (John 16:33; 1John 2:15-17). This is the false illusion of the ego, and the dream “state” in which it perceives itself as the center of the universe, and sees life as existing to serve its individual “reality” and meet its every need and desire, which the ego selfishly pursues, and feels its needs and desires are ultimately more important than “others.” The ego basically lives to serve itself. The ego is trapped in its own separate self identity. This is even true in its service to others and self made sacrifices out of duty or obligation. This is why even in such service the ego often feels victimized, unapreciated and empty.
Jesus overcame completely the false illusion of the ego when He was led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit, to be tempted by the devil (Mathew 4:1-11; John 16:33; Hebrews 2:18; 4:15). There He overcame the temptation of self seeking, of power and control over others, greed, and pride. He was thus prepared for His role in the ministry He was about to enter into, and to fulfill His mission as Messiah and Savior (Hebrews 2:17,18; 4:15). There in the wilderness, Jesus overcame the temptations placed upon His ego by the devil. He said in John 16:33, “take courage; I have overcome the world.” The only “world” there is to overcome, is the false illusion and deception of the ego, which perceives itself as our true self, separate from others and from God, and is self-centered, self-willed, self seeking, and self survival based, exists in fear and judgment, and basically worships itself (Genesis 3:1-7; 1John 2:15,16,17; John 16:33; 8:43,44).
Jesus said that He judges no one at all, and that if He did judge anyone His judgment would be true because He seeks not His own will (the will of the ego) but the will of His heavenly Father (source of pure, undivided, unconditional love) (John 8:15,16; 5:30). Only that singular vision can apply the true judgment of love and promote healing through its judgment, because its vision is clear and can see the true heart of everything (Psalm 36:9; Luke 11:34-36; Colossians 3:15; Mathew 7:1-5; Romans 2:29; Ephesians 3:17-19; 1Timothy 1:5; Mathew 5:8; John 7:24).
When we stop judging, we will come into the realization of that singular love which is not trapped and imprisoned within the dualistic sin nature of our present human consciousness (Luke 6:37; 1John 4:18,19; John 17:22,23,26; James 1:13-15; 1ohn 1:5; 2:10). We cannot love that which we hate, and we cannot hate that which we love. When we live in duality consciousness, we live in a love/hate relationship with all things and give birth to “evil.” If we love our enemies as Jesus taught us, then we actually perceive no one as our enemy. If everyone in the world did this there would be no wars, or crimes or evil in the world. When we love the enemy within us, we will love the enemy “outside” of us, and we will then have transcended our present human consciousness of perceiving the world and our-self in the limited and self-defeating judgmental concept of “good” and “evil,” and will then have become consciously aware of the singularity of perfect love, which is unconditional in nature, and is the undivided nature of God (James 1:13; 1John 1:5; Psalm 36:9).
We in our present humanity, are involved in a fight and struggle which our judgment nature creates through resistance within itself. It is thus self-perpetuating, and creating more of the same. Its like a bad dream that humanity as a whole hasn’t woke up from (Ephesians 5:13,14; 2Corinthians 4:4,6). As such we are trapped within the judgment nature of that duality, and cannot free our-self (John 8:34,36; Romans 7:15,18,19,21,2324,25). We can at times keep an acceptable balance of “good” and “evil” in our personal lives and within society through fear of consequences and behavior modification, and by goals and strategies for motivating and creating change within individuals, and maintaining that which society as a whole acknowledges as correct and acceptable behavior, but we cannot eliminate the “evil” potentiality within ourselves and in the world (Romans 7:23).
Our present human consciousness in its dualistic perception of “good” and “evil,” creates resistance and the “evil” we judge (Luke 6:27-30,36,37; Romans 12:17,21; 7:15,18,19,23,24,25). As such we are in an eternal battle with our-selves and each other (Romans 7:15,18,19,23). That is why Jesus taught not to judge at all, because judgment creates resistance and that creates conflict, and that perpetuates evil (Mathew 7:1,2; 5:38,39; Luke 6:29,30,35,37). Jesus taught not to judge by the surface appearance of things, but through the heart of pure love which is undivided in nature and which is where true honesty dwells, and which he referred to as judging with righteous judgment (Mathew 5:43-48; John 8:15; 7:24; 15:12,13; 1John 4:7,8; 1:5; 2:10; Psalm 36:9). True discernment and righteous judgment only comes through pure unconditional love (Psalm 36:9; Philippians 1:9; Ephesians 5:1,2,8,9,10; 1John 4:9-11,18,19).
As already stated, true and perfect love is unconditional in nature, and does not exist within the held “reality” of the field of opposites in the judgment nature of “good” vs. “evil.” That love which Jesus came to reveal to us, which is undivided in its nature, and existing as a singular reality, is what the Bible refers to as perfect love (John 17:22,23,26; Mathew 5:44-48; 6:22,23; 1John 4:8-12,16-19; Psalm 36:9). We are taught in the Bible that God is love, and that perfect love is unconditional and has no opposite reality in truth (1John 1:5; 4:8; James 1:13; Luke 6:32,33,35,36,37). God’s love exists undivided and eternal in nature, beyond and outside the field of opposites; it was never created and cannot be destroyed (James 1:13; Psalm 36:9; 1JJohn1:5; 4:8). There is no darkness in Him as the Bible says, and no evil can exist in God’s perfect unconditional love. Perfect love cannot sin, and cannot create the conditions which give birth to sin (James 1:13; 1John 4:18). This is the love that Jesus came to bring us into the realization of, and which will free us from the divided judgment nature of what the Bible calls sin, which is missing the mark of the perfect unconditional love of God and unity with the one Spirit of life, in eternal communion and union with His love (1John 3:4; Psalm 36:9; Acts 17:28; Ephesians 4:3-6; John 4:23,24; 17:22,23,26).
Jesus said whom the Son sets free from sin and death, is free indeed (John 8:34,36). He also said that if we remain in His word and follow His teachings, which include faith in His sacrificial death and resurrection, we will then, know the truth (our true divine nature as children of God conceived in His perfect love) and that truth by His grace, will set us free from the power of sin and death (John 8:31,32; 3:5-9,14,15,16; Psalm 36:9; 1John 3:5,9; 4:7-11,18,19; 5:4,5; 2Petr 1:2-4; Romans 6:14; 2Corinthians 3:18).
The truth Jesus said would set us free, is revealed to us in Him, through our walk of faith, as we follow Him in His love all the way to His cross for our complete liberation, and resurrection to life in Him (Romans 6:3-6,14; Philippians 1:9-11; 3:20,21). By a living faith sealed in His love, we die to sin and are raised to new life in Him, whereby we are gradually made perfect in His love (1John 4:8-19). His sin atoning death and resurrection, holds the power of His love, to be released by faith, and through which we receive complete redemption (2Corinthians 3:18; 1John 4:9-12,16,18,19; Romans 1:9; 5:1,2,5; 6:6,14,22; 8:11,38,39; Galatians 4:19; Ephesians 1:13; 3:16-19; Philippians 3:9-14; Colossians 2:13,14).
The cross is the access point to the throne of God’s grace and unconditional love (1John 4:9,10,16; John 3:16). It is the door through the heart of Jesus by which we must enter to experience our death and rebirth into that love which sets us free (1John 4:8-12,18,19; John 1:12,13,17; 3:3,5,9,14-16; 10:9,15,17,18; 15:1,5,9,11,12,13; Romans 5:8; 6:14; 8:2,38,39; 2Thessalonians 3:5; Ephesians 3:17-19; 1Peter 1:3,5,10,11,13,22,23,25; Psalm 36:9 compare with John 8:12 & 1John 2:10& 3:14,16).
As mentioned earlier, Jesus said in John 4:23 that true worshipers are those who worship the Father in Spirit and truth. True worship allows us to access the power of God’s love in our life, and allows true communion with our Heavenly Father in Spirit. How do true worshipers worship the Father in spirit and truth? The Bible teaches that there is one Spirit, which it refers to as the Holy Spirit of God’s love, which is the feminine creative principle of God’s nature or the Mother nature of God as unconditional love (Ephesians 4:4-6; Romans 5:5; Genesis 1:2; 17:1—–El Shaddai, one of the names of God, means the many breasted one, here God is seen as the Infinite Mother, pouring forth blessings). It is through our heart center that we can connect our spirit with His Spirit in the Holy communion of love. It is a Holy union in the One Spirit of perfect love whose truth is revealed in that love and springs forth naturally from that love in revealed wisdom, and knowledge (Ephesians 2:2,3; 5:2,25,26,27,31,32; John 14:17; 16:13; 17:22,23,26; Romans 5:5; Acts 17:27,28; Colossians 2:2,3; Galatians 5:22; Ephesians 4:15; 5:2,8,9; Psalm 36:9 compare John 8:12; Isaiah 11:2). Thus, In spirit and truth means worshiping Him in love through our spirit, in holy communion with His Spirit, where we enter the purity and innocence of His unconditional love, and its truth is revealed in the sacred spiritual temple of our being, where God’s presence dwells and His glory shines, and there in sacred unity, we receive love’s wisdom and truth into our heart and understanding directly from our heavenly Father (John 4:21,23,24; Mathew 22:36-40; Acts 17:27,28; 1Corinthians 3:16,17; Ephesians 1:17; 2:20,21,22; 3:17-19; Philippians 1:9; 2Timothy 2:7; 1Thessalonians 3:12,13; 1John 4:7,8,19; John 4:14; 7:38; 14:17,26; 17:22,23,26; Psalm 36:9; John 8:12; Mathew 5:8).
Jesus said He is the way, the truth and the life. He is the way to enter heaven through His death and resurrection, which becomes our death and rebirth in Him (John 14:6; Romans 6:3-6; 1Corinthians 5:45-49; Galatians 3:26; 4:19; Ephesians 2:4-6; Philippians 3:9-12; 1Peter 1:3). This means we die to the ego’s self-centered perception as separate from God and others, and we also die to the ego’s judgment nature, and are reborn into the unconditional love of the Father, in the unity and the One undivided nature of His perfect love (John 17:22,23,26; Psalm 36:9). We become one with Him in that One Spirit of perfect unconditional love (1John 1:5,6; 4:7-11,18,19; 2Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 3:17-19; 5:1,2,8,9; John 17:22,23,26). Jesus is the truth … the revelation of perfect love and who we are in the truth of that love (1John 4:7,9,10,19; Ephesians 3:19; Colossians 3:3,4; 2Corinthians 3:18; 1Corinthians 13:8-10,12,13). He is the life and love which is eternal in nature, and through which we enter eternal life (1John 4:8,9,10,19; 1:5 compare to John 17:3; Psalm 36:9; John 17:22,23,26; 3:16; Ephesians 3:19).
The Bible teaches that we come into the experience of the fullness of God’s love, through our relationship in the love of Jesus and the gospel of our salvation (Ephesians 3:11,12,17,18,19; 2Thessalonians 3:5; 1Peter 1:8,9,10; 1Jon 4:8-11,18,19; John 17:23,26). God’s children are led by His Spirit, and their mind is renewed by the operation of the Holy Spirit in their life, through which their heart receives the love of God which transforms the mental perception of truth, guided by the wisdom of that love which is revealed by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:14; 5:5; Titus 3:4,5; Ephesians 4:15,16,23,24; 3:16-19; Colossians 2:2,3).
There is no truth to be discerned outside of God’s love. The intellectual mind is to be the servant of the Mind of Christ in love, which is revealed in the heart by the Holy Spirit (Colossians 3:14,15; 1:8,9,10; Philippians 4:7; 1:6,9,11; 1Corinthians 2:16; John 17:23,26; Romans 5:5; Ephesians 4:23,24; Hebrews 10:16). In other words, the mind of the ego, the human intellect, is to die to self seeking, power, and control, and serve the truth of love, which is the mind and heart of Christ. Christ rules through the awakened heart not the mind (Colossians 3:15; 2Thessalonians 3:5).
The true mind, which is the eternal un-created Mind of Christ, and which the Bible says we have, is awakened in us through the heart center, by faith and in relationship with the love of Jesus (1Corinthians 2:16; Colossians 3:15; 2Thessalonians 3:5; Hebrews 10:16; Ephesians 5:2,8,9,13,14; 3:16-19; 1Peter 1:3,5,8,9). Jesus said He is “the door.” (John 10:7,9; 14:6). A door is an entrance point is it not? He is the door through which our heart opens and we enter into the revelation of unconditional love as our undivided truth of being, in which we eternally exist in unity and communion with our heavenly Father and His Son Jesus (John 17:19,20,21,22,23,26; 8:12; 5:24; 2Thessalonians 3:5; 1John 4:7,8,9,10,13,14,19; 3:1; Psalm 36:9). We go through Jesus, into eternal love and life (John 17:22,23,26; 8:12; 15:4,5,7,9,12,13; 1John 4:7,8,9,10,11,19; Ephesians 3:17-19). This is the living way (Hebrews 10:19,20; 1Peter 1:3,5,8,9). It is an inner journey and experience of awakening in the unconditional love of God through faith and love (Luke 17:21; Galatians 4:19; 5:6; Colossians 1:27; 2:2,3; 3:15; Ephesians 5:2,8,9,10,13,14; 2Thessalonians 3:5).
The heart is the channel through which truth is perceived and received (Ephesians 1:18; 3:17-19; Galatians 5:5,6). It is the rightful throne from which God rules in our life, in perfect love (Colossians 3:15; Ephesians 3:17,19; Psalm 36:9). When the heart which is the seat of love, and the mind which processes thought, receives and serves the revelation and truth of love as revealed in the heart of man through the Holy Spirit of Gods love, then heaven and earth have become one, and it can truly be said that God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven (Mathew 6:10; Ephesians 1:17,18; 4:15,23,24; Romans 5:5; Hebrews 10:16). Then, there will be a new heavens and a new earth where righteousness and love reigns in all human hearts (2Peter 3:13). God’s kingdom will be manifest and His will which is fulfilled in perfect love, will be done on earth as it is in heaven. His standard is love, made perfect in Grace.
