Follow Love’s Thread
Saturday, August 25, 2018 by Hannah Hunter

     Often as I pray for people I inquire of the LORD, “Where do you want me to begin? YOU created them so you have the key or you know the thread we need to unravel this to set them free.” HE is so faithful. As the master weaver shows us how HE wove a master piece that was marred by the hatred of the great deceiver. I rejoice that the end result is freedom and deliverance.

            This morning as I was in the place of secret I carved out for me and THEM HE said to me when I was in my listening phase, “You are result driven?” HE began to play things back in my memory bank. I heard conversations, say thoughts and videos of actions. Amazing how when you are steeped in HIS light and presence you see how far you have yet to go. Repentance without condemnation is the only response HE needs in such an encounter.

            HE said, “Let me show you the thread of love that should be your driving force.” I love the written WORD. We take it for granted because we have so many sources to look at HIS WORD. It is our life line. HE spoke John 3:16 to me.KJV” For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in HIM, should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Anyone raised in church can quote this with no effort. At times it feels so cliché or redundant. HE told me, “Open the book and look at the stories surrounding this verse.”

            As I opened the bible the thread led me to the beginning of the gospel penned by the John the beloved. JESUS was at the beginning and HE gave life and light to everyone. That to me is synonymous of love. Everything GOD does is in the attendance of love. Unfailing love is one of the attendants that go before HIM. John says when JESUS took on our human form he was full of unfailing love. That love drove HIM to the Jordan to be baptized by John the Baptist. In that obedient demonstration the disciples began to be drawn to gather around HIM and declared HIM the Lamb of GOD. Thread of love drew them to HIS dwelling and to sit at HIS feet.

            The next recording has JESUS at the wedding in Cana. Although HE was not yet released in loving obedience to the pleas of HIS birth mom he turned water into wine. Thread of love performed the first miracle.

            Holy days were now upon the Jews. JESUS was in Jerusalem with his relatives and disciples. The next piece of thread is offense to the pacifistic spirit. JESUS goes in and fashions a whip and aggressively cleans out the temple- not quietly nor orderly- but passionately. A thread of love drew people to the house of GOD for worship and supplication prayer. Yet they were assaulted by those seeking to make a profit off those coming to bring their sacrifice to GOD.

            The Jerusalem rag I am sure recorded that far and wide. Also not to minimize the gossip tree I am sure that mushroomed as all the relatives and Jews were gathered for the holy days.  Interesting that right after the temple cleansing a Jewish religious leader, Nicodemus, came under the cover of darkness to speak with JESUS. Neither his motive nor the outcome is recorded; however the verse of John 3:16 was in the center of this conversation.

            Also in the conversation with Nicodemus, JESUS goes on to assure him HE was not sent as a judge ( I am sure the religious spirit hated that)but as the Savior! In truth it is our own rejection of JESUS and HIS thread of truth that brings judgment on us. Some hate light (thread of love) because it will expose their sin. Yet HE meant for the JESUS thread of love in us to draw others into obedience to HIS will and way. Yet there is no record that this thread caused those who were observing the holy days in the temple to seek JESUS out.

            JESUS then following the thread of love laid out by HIS FATHER goes to intercept the Samaritan woman. Oh how that thread wove a path for a whole rejected tribe back to their Creator. She ran back and used the Samaritan Sun or whatever news outlet to tell everyone of this thread called JESUS. That not only believed, they came out to see HIM, they listened to HIM for 2 days and heard for themselves, and declared with their mouths he indeed was the SAVIOR of the world.

            Following that HE visited Galilee where a government official came to seek healing for his son. The thread of love, JESUS, simply spoke, and the son was healed.

            Beloved ones may we follow the thread of love to bring everlasting life to those who have not seen or heard unless we obey. Where does that thread lead you today?
            FATHER today we want to thank you for sending your one and only SON to weave us into that thread of love called JESUS. May it be so tight we neither can, nor ever want to, not escape its’ love and security. Forgive us when we have been driven by our own motivations or desire for results we deemed important. Plunge us anew in your heart of Love. Wash us clean in your river of life. May the leaves of our tree bring healing to the nations, and may the fruit on our trees bring life and refreshment to all who are drawn to partake because we carry your light and thread of love. In JESUS name we thank YOU as we wait with great expectations. We love you. We honor you. Amen.
