In its many forms of expression, Love seems to be the number one subject of conversation in the world today.
But, it is a subject well worn and tattered. Yet it is so dear to us even though we may not really know what it is all
about. Everyone seems to have an opinion of what love is, yet so many people are painfully unfulfilled in love.
Although it involves feelings and emotions, real love is not about either
of these. I have learned that it’s not of anything that is vague or the result of infatuation. Love is an
essence of the creative principle from which all things have originated.
To be more correct and accurate in considering “Love” as the source of all life, we must come to realize
that “LOVE” in its pure state is truly a member of a host of attributes that are in their
very nature, eternal. But on earth there are many types and shadows that reflect the nature of love, most especially in nature.
The true concept is beyond human imagination, but the physical manifestations or examples that point to this pure Love and
its role in the creation of the world and mankind, in most instances, are greatly misunderstood.
The host of attributes I mentioned is like a family of pure essential members that cannot be divided
or fully fathomed in their pure eternal state of existence. But, they can be known and clearly seen through understanding
the physical examples that have been created to reflect and point to their existence. These eternal forms (attributes)
were shown and revealed to Moses and the Israelite nation in such a way that we can today, from the Law and the Prophets (the
scriptures), know for sure the truth about their existence.
There are recorded nine major attributes that make up the divine eternal nature of the Creator whose Divine Title is
“ELOHIM.” This title is a Hebrew word and is incorrectly rendered as “GOD or God” in most
bible translations. By doing this the translators have created a basis for misunderstanding what is written in the bible.
This ELOHIM is a super incorporeal being or shape and form that is visible
in visions only, that is how Moses and the elders of Israel were able to see Him (Exodus 24:9-10). The nine attributes that I mentioned are the spirit substance of this
being. That means that Intelligence, Knowledge, Wisdom, Beauty, Love, Justice, Foundation, Power, and Strength are His
inherent nature (these are the nine attributes we are talking about). This amalgamation is spoken of as the
“WORD” by the apostle John who wrote about him (John 1:1-4). And, this is the same Word that appeared to
the ancient patriarchs and to all the prophets. Word is the Creator, a Spirit Law embodiment that causes every
aspect of life to exist and to be unified and function harmoniously; and it is all according the purpose of Yahweh.
And it is evident with all the talk about personal, community, business, and political relationships, that most folks have
no idea of what real love is. This of course is to be expected since almost no one knows or understands who ELOHIM is.
Remember we said that Love is an attribute of Elohim.
Elohim is the
Will of PURE SPIRIT in a shape and form, and it embodies the purpose of Pure Spirit. Love, as one of the primary attributes,
is active in bring into existence the purpose of Pure Spirit ( Yahweh ). In the bible, Pure Spirit is referred to as
“the LORD.” Here again the translators have made a major error, and caused a devastating situation and misleading most student seeking the truth hidden in the
The LORD should be rendered “YAHWEH”
from the Hebrew consonants “YHWH.” This too is critical in the understanding of the Hebrew writings, but
a title (Lord) for
the true name the translators have created a major barrier to correctly learning about our Creator and especially the true
existence of our Heavenly Father. Yahweh is the true NAME of the SOURCE for all that exists including energy, forces,
forms, creations, worlds, humans, and concepts. (This is what is being expressed in the writings of Isaiah 45:18-19
Yahweh is Pure Spirit which has no descriptive
or particular shape or form. It is the source and substance, limits and bounds of ALL THERE IS. Pure spirit is
the absolute pristine substance, in other words, a substance composed of divine attributes: the vast endlessness of
eternal existence. This is what the apostle Paul was speaking about in his speech to the Greek philosophers on Mars
Hill (Acts 17:28). And King David also is acknowleging this phenomenon...Psalm 139:7-13
Whither shall I go from thy spirit?Acts 17:27-28
or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend
up into heaven, thou art there:
if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
even there shall thy hand lead me,
and thy right hand shall hold
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me;
even the night shall be light about me.
Yea, the darkness
hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day:
the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
…,though he be not far from every one of us: for in him we live, and move, and have our being;
as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
In this essay I
have not actually quoted all scriptures sited, because they will be presented in a classroom study session. That will
be posted on the “Study Bulletin” in the Classrooms Building (see: Virtual University Directory).
Please remember: LOVE in its purity is a divine attribute. And to
repeat what I said earlier: Love is a primary attribute active in bring into existence the purpose of Pure Spirit, Yahweh.
And life was purposed to be on planet earth; therefore most life forms are impregnated with the attribute of instinctive love
for its offspring. That is why a concept of “Love” is so prevalent in human thought and behavior.
But, a lack of instruction and correct knowledge about the true nature of love is why humanity has suffered so much concerning
Love as a concept.
