The concept of love should be understood. When it is not understood, sometimes you find it difficult to love in certain situations. It is because you didn’t understand it properly. If you understood it properly you will not have such difficulties.
1 John 4v18(NASB); “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear [a]involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love“ This verse does not specify if it is fear of trust or fear of integrity etc. It says “FEAR” which means all fears. When you have fear, you are not perfect in love.
Love does not start from your relationship with others or your actions towards others. Love starts from your relationship with God. Now, the scripture clearly said, if we do not love the one we see, how can we claim to love the one who we do not see (1 John 4v20). In revelation of love, it doesn’t start from good works but starts from relationship with God. The Lord Jesus’ relationship with God was first before His task.
How do you know if your relationship with God is strong? You take Him for what He says. There is no double thought. If He says you are forgiven, you take it; if He says you are healed, you take it. Do you think your relationship is strong when you are praying in tongues or doing signs & wonders? No. It is to take God’s word as final authority in your life. This is how you know your relationship with God is strong.
If you take today’s situation, Coronovirus is spreading. If you are scared, you are not perfect in love because the verse says there is no fear in love. There is reverential fear but we are not talking about that. That is necessary in relationships.
When you fear, you are not perfect in love. You take His word as final in your life. Father’s confession about Jesus was “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Mathew 3v17). What is Father’s confession about you?
Wicked people will control others with fear. Fear has a controlling power. In this message Apostle Edmonds is diagnosing the fear in you, so that you can pull it out. In 2005, God spoke to Apostle Edmonds saying “son, face your fears; defeat them otherwise they will rise and defeat you”. Before God will use a man, all your fears must die. Not one should remain. How? The best thing you can do to yourself in Christian life is to be true to yourself and be true to God. You should not say what you don’t believe. Apostle Edmonds was scared of success, divorce etc. He wrote it down in a paper and prayed to God to get him rid of these fears. Today he is free from all fears. He is fearless. He was raised by mentors who were fearless.
You and your Father (Yahweh) are same. Fear make you imperfect in love. If you command fears that are in you and it does not go then insist and use your authority given to you of the Lord. Perfect love doesn’t have fear. It casts out fear. Check your heart and see if there is anything makes you like the people of this world who are scared to die or scared of anything. Refuse to fear!
