John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Ever wonder where we came from? Proof Of The Last Age!

Recommended Posts

Ever wonder where we came from?

Take a look at this:

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

GOD is creating! It will be a few days still before we are here in the flesh, but we're coming!

Now, take a look at the word 'was' in Genesis 1:2 in it's original Hebrew meaning:

H1961

היה hâyâh haw-yaw' A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): - beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), continue, do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use. It means be, or become. So, in Genesis 1:2, it actually says that the earth became without form and void. Why did the earth become without form and void? Well, if you look at Genesis, GOD is creating, and HE says each step was good. But why DID the earth become without form and void? Because before that, GOD was angry, plenty angry! He destroyed the entire age that existed before this one. Then HE created this one to give us a chance to come back to HIM. The verses above look at the earth when it became without form and void and go forward in time. Now lets take a look at the same point in time, but this time, lets look backwards in time to see what happened. Take a look at this:

Jer 4:22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.

Jer 4:23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.

Jer 4:24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.

Jer 4:25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.

Jer 4:26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.

Jer 4:27 For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.

Jer 4:28 For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.

Take a look at verse 4:22, and you'll see that people are very good at making GOD angry. The reason that GOD destroyed the last age though, is because 1/3 of GOD'S children teamed with satan to try and take GOD'S THRONE. If you look at verse 4:23, you'll see, that is our time marker. It's the point in time where the earth is without form, and void. This time, however, we are looking backwards in time. And GOD is not creating and saying that it was good. GOD is destroying things. In actuality, HE is destroying the entire age. If you read the rest of those verses, you will see that there was no man in flesh bodies yet. There were birds and cities, but they were broken down by the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger. Also, notice that the heavens above are made black. So, it wasn't just the earth that went through destruction, the stars did as well.

Also notice that even though GOD had not created anything as listed in Genesis yet, there are cities and birds. Remember, we are at the point in time where the earth was without form and void. The reason is that it was the age before this one. And even though there was an age before this one, there is yet another age to come. There are three, total. And the next age is for Eternity. And for those of us who make it, we will never have to go through this again!
