"Come to Me, all you who labor ... and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, for My yoke is easy and My ways are not grievous.
( His commandments are not hard, compared to the devil's yoke of bondage.) -- from Matthew 11:28 -30
"Cast all your cares on (upon) Me, for I care for you.
No greater love has any man, except a man lay down His life for His friends. I no longer call you servants, but My friends. I speak to you as My friends. We fellowship together in worship, in prayer, and in silence. I am your friend.
A friend loves at all times. A friend warns you of impending danger. A friend tells you the truth. A friend is merciful and kind, full of compassion, and also of grace.
A friend forgives: not just once, but over and over again.
As long as sins and offenses come, there will be a need for forgiveness ... constant forgiveness. As I have forgiven you, and CONTINUE to forgive you, so you must (also) do the same.
You must endeavor (try) to walk (live) in love.
Love must rule your lives. (If you haven't found My love, continue asking ... for the one who seeks love will find love.) If you need love, ask Me.
If you don't feel loved, ask Me. (I am in the *business of love* !)
I will show you love. (For some of you, this is a new experience.)
My love is NOT what the world talks (speaks) of. My love is not of this earth: it is from above. It is a pure love, an undefiled love ... a real love and a deep love.
The love I give will not go away. My love is forever. As you sense and experience My love, your trust (and subsequent faith and works of faith) will grow and blossom.
Faith works by love. My works (of faith) must be done in love. You will love Me, for I first will love you. (I love you now, but many do not know this, or really receive it.)
There is an outpouring of My love, given by the Holy Spirit to you, which is increasing. It is flowing fresh and forcefully from My throne.
(An anointing of love.)
My Spirit delivers My love to you. The love of Jesus Christ, the love of the Father, and the love of the (Holy) Spirit are yours. Be ready to receive. Love never fails. Amen."
