This is an experimental page. It is written as if it were coming from the heart of Jesus to his followers. It was written with the help of an AI tool I use in business. You might ask, isn’t that wrong? The most popular Christian writers have a group of people collaborating with them to write their books. Some use ghost writers who write most of their books to make the authors main ideas engaging for the reader. This is an example of how one man can promote Christlike living using technology as my main collaborator. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
Dear child of the Most High,
In the Sermon on the Mount, I spoke words that may seem contradictory to your human understanding, words that urge you to love those who despise you and pray for those who persecute you. Today, I want to delve deeper into the words I spoke when I said, “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you (Matthew 5:44).”
I know it is challenging and seems unnatural, to love those who have wronged you. I experienced the challenge when I walked on earth. Remember I was crucified for no reason when I died for your sins.
Yet, in this command, I invite you to rise above your human instincts. Instead of retribution and anger, reflect the divine love of your Father in Heaven. He loved you even when you were not lovable.
Love, my dear ones, is the most potent force in the universe. It knows no boundaries. It does not discriminate between a friend or an enemy. True, divine love is offered to everyone. Just as the sun shines on the just and the unjust alike (Matthew 5:45), God’s love encompasses every one of His children, regardless of their actions.
When I ask you to love your enemies, I am asking you to emulate the love the Father has for you. Be an earthly expression of His divine love. Break free from the chains of bitterness, resentment, and hatred, which only bind your spirit and hinder your spiritual growth. Choose to respond with love, even when met with hatred.
Loving your enemies does not mean condoning or accepting their harmful actions. It is about recognizing that they, like you, are children of our Heavenly Father. They are also often lost in the maze of their imperfections. Loving your enemies is about hoping and praying for their transformation, that they may find their way back to the light. I am the Light (John 8:12).
Consider this: when you pray for those who persecute you, you are not merely performing a charitable act. You are also transforming yourself. In your prayer, you move beyond your ego, embrace humility, and align yourself closer to our Father’s divine love. Each prayer for your enemy is a step towards your spiritual evolution, your sanctification. It’s a testament to the strength of love over hatred.
Additionally, blessing those who curse you, doing good to those who hate you, is not a sign of weakness but a reflection of inner strength and spiritual maturity. It demonstrates your ability to rise above personal pain, to choose love over hatred, and peace over conflict.
Remember, my beloved, in issuing this command, I am not asking you to embark on this journey alone. I am with you, and so is our Father, every step of the way. When you stumble and fall, reach out in prayer, and you will find the strength to carry on.
In the end, loving your enemies is about transcending the limitations of earthly love and reflecting the infinite, divine love of God. It’s about becoming a beacon of love and forgiveness in a world often torn apart by hatred and conflict. I know that it will be a challenging journey, but it is one that brings you closer to your divine self, closer to my likeness. Loving your enemies will be one way you will bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth.
So please, my dear ones, embrace this divine paradox of love. Respond to hatred with love, to curse with blessing, to persecution with prayer. Strive to love your enemies, as your Father in Heaven loves you. Our Father also loves them.
In Love and Light,
Following the commandment of Jesus in Matthew 5:44 to “Love your enemies” can be challenging. But it’s not impossible. Here are some practical examples of how you can apply this teaching in your daily life:
Remember, these actions are not about being a doormat or ignoring harmful behavior. Instead, they’re about breaking the cycle of hate and negativity, and choosing to respond with love and compassion, just as Jesus taught. They demonstrate the strength of divine love to transform even the most challenging relationships and situations.
Loving your enemies, as commanded by Jesus in Matthew 5:44, is a divine call to embody the unconditional love of God in our interactions with others. This radical love carries several profound kingdom benefits, transforming not only our relationships but our hearts as well.
In essence, loving your enemies brings the Kingdom of God into your everyday life, fostering spiritual maturity, peace, reconciliation, and a Christlike character. It’s a testament to the transformative power of God’s love, extending His Kingdom of peace and justice in a world often riddled with conflict and hate.
Here are some questions that could help your examine your attitudes towards loving your enemies. Answer them honestly and openly. Learning to love your enemies is a continuous process of growth and learning, guided by the love and grace of Jesus.
