"Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.". (Psalms42:7)
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." (John 20:27)
"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.". (1 John 4:1)
A distance from her nest, the mother bird makes a deep screeching sound,
"Eeech, eeech, eeech!!"
To the causal ear and to other animals it's nonsensical. Yet, a few minutes later there is a response. " Eeech, eeech, eeech!" The young eaglets knew that familiar voice. It registered. Deep within them, that voice touch their innermost being; the voice meant care and unconditional love. Remember, the secret code deep within our soul is love. Our soul needs love. It is looking for unconditional love. We were created by Love and we are looking for Him.
Yes, you are looking for God in people.
The Apostle John says that....
" he that loveth not knoweth not God for God is love"
Love, yes love, is still the acid test of true Christianity. Sadly, most people fall for the counterfeit and substitute of sexual lust, charisma, and religion pretending...pretending to be love:
wolves in sheep clothing
The deceiver, Satan, traps them in relationships that they should never be in. Listen, betrayal, lies, and deception are so so strong during our time. Satan wants to hurt and bruise us. He wants to fill us with hatred and lies, then, use us to hurt others. Most people fall (fall in love) for the deception. They don't know what or who Love is. Love is not religion and religion is not Iove.
Love suffers long and is kind, seeks not its own, it's not arrogant, approachable, forgives, hopes and believes.
If you run after the flesh...you will die! Believing that sex is love will kill you!! It's the spirit that quickens, the flesh profits nothing. The flesh can only promise. It can't deliver the love your soul needs and longs for.
Like the mother bird, test the spirit.
If it is of God, it will answer you. It will give asking for nothing in return. It will sacrifice. It will forgive. It will be real and tell the truth.
You see, if it doesn't understand that language, the deep language of the soul, love isn't there and neither should you!
