The Way of Love
(1 Cor 12:31b, 13:1-13) I shall show you a still more excellent way. If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, love is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. For we know partially and we prophesy partially, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things. At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known. So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
I wish to thank all those who prayed yesterday for my intention. It was answered. Praise the Lord.
(Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Redeemer given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words.)
“I love you, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters living in every country of the world. I showed you My love when I was on earth and I am still showing you My love in many different ways. There is nothing greater than love. It is greater than any other gift you may receive. That is why I gave you the commandment: Love one another as I have loved you. I gave all that I had out of love for each one of you. I did not worry if I did not have anything to eat or I did not have a place to sleep. So often the Apostles and I slept outside under a tree. I also suffered much for you out of love. I was beaten terribly and flogged although I did not do anything wrong. At the end I was nailed to a cross and I was hanging there for about three hours. It was My great sacrifice to My Father and your Father in order to pay the price for your sins. I did it all out of love for you.
My friends, I call you all to love one another. Forgive those who have hurt you in any way. Forgive them and love them with all your heart. Pray for their salvation for this is what I want. I offered My sacrifice for those who have faith and those who do not have faith because I want everyone in heaven with Me one day. Do not hold a grudge against anyone because this comes because of hatred. If you have any resentment against a person, then offer that person up to Me and repeat about 25 times a day that you forgive him or her. After two weeks all resentment will be gone and you will love that person. I love you all.”
