Correct are true believers in our eternal Creator through expressing their love, awe and worship towards Him in words, and because the word love alone can be found with many different meanings that you will come to; we all also know that our greatest love can only be towards our Creator. But, according to scripture, are words alone enough?
Love Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. (Deuteronomy 6:5) (NOG)
Now that we have established that agreement, what does this following scripture mean to you?
“Everyone who hates (works against) his brother [in Yahshua – Christ] is [at heart] a murderer [by God’s – Yahweh’s standards]; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. By this we know [and have come to understand the depth and essence of His precious] love: that He [willingly] laid down His life for us [because He loved us]. And we ought to lay down our lives for the believers. But whoever has the world’s goods (adequate resources), and sees his brother in need, but has no compassion for him, how does the love of Yahweh live in him? Little children (believers, dear ones), let us not love [merely in theory] with word or with tongue [giving lip service to compassion], but in action and in truth [in practice and in sincerity, because practical acts of love are more than words]. By this we will know [without any doubt] that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart and quiet our conscience before Him whenever our heart convicts us [in guilt]; for Yahweh Elohim [God] is greater than our heart and He knows all things [nothing is hidden from Him because we are in His hands]. Beloved, if our heart does not convict us [of guilt], we have confidence [complete assurance and boldness] before Elohim [Most High]; (1 John 3:15-21) (AMP)
How can it be possible to love Yahweh Elohim when we do not what our Creator Instructs? Yahweh knows all of us well, therefore also knows the selfish ways most all possess.
“When all has been heard, the end of the matter is: fear God [worship Him with awe-filled reverence, knowing that He is almighty God] and keep His commandments, for this applies to every person. For God will bring every act to judgment, every hidden and secret thing, whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14) (AMP)
“I the Lord search the mind, I try the heart, even to give to every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. (Jeremiah 17:10 (AMPC)
“Give, and [gifts] will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will they pour [a]into [the pouch formed by] the bosom [of your robe and used as a bag]. For with the measure you deal out [with the measure you use when you confer benefits on others], it will be measured back to you.
He further told them a proverb: Can a blind [man] guide and direct a blind [man]? Will they not both stumble into a ditch or a hole in the ground?
A pupil is not superior to his teacher, but everyone [when he is] completely trained (readjusted, restored, set to rights, and perfected) will be like his teacher.
Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye but do not notice or consider the beam [of timber] that is in your own eye?
Or how can you say to your brother, Brother, allow me to take out the speck that is in your eye, when you yourself do not see the beam that is in your own eye? You actor (pretender, hypocrite)! First take the beam out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.
For there is no good (healthy) tree that bears decayed (worthless, stale) fruit, nor on the other hand does a decayed (worthless, sickly) tree bear good fruit.
For each tree is known and identified by its own fruit; for figs are not gathered from thornbushes, nor is a cluster of grapes picked from a bramblebush.
The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.
Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, [Yahshua] and do not [practice] what I tell you? (Luke 6:38-46) (AMPC)
A verbal expression of blame. Scripture gives examples of both divine and human rebuke. Sometimes Yahweh Elohim [God] issues rebukes directly but more commonly he did so through the OT prophets. In the NT Yahshua [Jesus Christ] and the apostles issue rebukes and teach the church group how to address those who sin. [do your own study on church as a bad mistranslation]
“If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for [Elohim’s] wrath; for it is written, Vengeance is Mine, I will repay (requite), says the Lord [Yahshua]. But if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head. Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good. (Romans 12:18-21) (AMPC)
