The words "Divine Love" have been used
in many contexts to convey different meanings. But in
the context of our Heavenly Father, Divine Love is the greatest gift in all the universe. It transcends
all else that can assist humankind fulfill their dreams of
happiness and have them resolved within themselves. God's Divine Love
is the one thing in all of God's infinite universe that
can bring about eternal life and everlasting happiness
in the Celestial Kingdom.
The Divine Love differs from the natural love of man
with which he was endowed when created, which belongs to
all humans, and which they all possess in a more or less
perfect condition in this: that the Divine Love is that
Love which belongs to or is a part of God, possessing
His Nature and composed of His Substance, and which,
when possessed by a human soul to a sufficient degree, makes him
divine and of the nature of God (reference).
The New Birth is simply the effect of the flowing
of this Divine Love of the Father into the soul of a man
and the disappearing of everything that tends to sin and
error. As the Divine Love takes possession of the soul,
sin and error disappear. It, the soul, becomes of a
quality like the Great Soul of the Father. And with the
Soul of the Father being Divine and immortal in Its
quality of Love, so, when the soul of man becomes
possessed of this quality of Love, the soul being the
man, this soul becomes divine also. Then, the image
becomes the substance; the mortal becomes the immortal;
and the soul of man, as to love and hope, becomes a part
of the Father's Divinity (reference).
does one receive the Divine Love?
The only way is simply this: that men shall believe with
all the sincerity of their minds and souls that this
great Love of the Father is waiting to be bestowed upon
each and all of them; and that when they come to the
Father in faith and earnest aspirations, this Love will
not be withholden from them. And, in addition to this
belief, that they pray with all the earnestness and
longings of their souls that the Father will open up
their souls to the inflowing of this Love, and that then
may come the Holy Spirit to them to bring this Love into
their souls in such abundance that their souls may be
transformed into the very Essence of the Father's Love.
The soul who will thus believe and pray will never be
disappointed, and the Way to the Kingdom will be his as
certainly as that the sun shines by day upon the just
and unjust alike.
Take the test.
Too often we are told to believe something based on what
we are told. You don't have to "believe" anymore. Now
you can have physical proof of the existence of God and
His Love for you? Here is what Jesus told the Hebrew
"test my teachings that the
Fatherís Love was now available, and pray for it to the Father in
earnest prayer, and see whether, if this was done in sincerity, the
Fatherís Love, conveyed through the Holy Spirit, would burn and glow
in the soul, by which sign they would realize His Love was present
Take it to heart -
earnestly pray for God's Divine Love and feel the
glowing of His Love in your soul. Jesus gave us this
prayer to help us in our prayers to the Father.
