The textbook definition refers to Love as the tender, passionate feeling one may have toward another person. Since the beginning of time humans have searched for Love, found love, lost love, given up on love, and found it once again. This is the typical cycle that many people go through in the journey through love; a bit inconsistent and lacking don't you think?

What about God's love? Can it be defined in the same way? Does God's love vary depending on God's mood, or lessen throughout time? Does it change or does it remain consistent? Very often because of our own experiences with Love, we tend to think that God's love exists in the same way. However, the Bible helps us to clearly understand just HOW DIFFERENT God's love is compared to the Love that we experience as humans.

"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom" (Isaiah 40:28)

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord" (Isaiah 55:8)

Well now that we can clearly understand that.....we understand nothing about God's Love by comparing to our own feelings and experiences, let's see what the Bible says about God's Love.

"Give ear and come to me, hear me that your soul may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love..." (Isaiah 55:3)

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine...Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you" (Isaiah 43:1-4)

Here we see that God is telling the ones he loves to fear not and come to Him. He is giving an everlasting covenant in order that our souls may live. In the second verse, because God loves us, he has redeemed us. Then how is it that God shows his love to us? What is the everlasting covenant, and how is it that we are redeemed?

"May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant , brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus..equip you with everything good for doing his will." (Hebrews 13:20-21)

"In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins in accordance with the riches of God's grace." (Ephesians 1:7)

Both the eternal covenant and the redemption that we receive from God involve the blood of Christ. Then how is it that God shows his love to us through the blood of Christ?

**In Matthew, on the night of the Passover Jesus Christ blessed the bread and wine that became the Covenant(promise) of his body and blood. (Matthew 26:17-28)
**In Luke Jesus said, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer."
"And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them saying, "this is my body given for you do this in remembrance of me. In the same way..he took the cup saying,"This cup is the new covenant in my blood which is poured out for you." (Luke 22:14-21)

On the night of the Passover, God's promise, His covenant with us, is given through the bread and wine, becoming Christ's body and blood. This promise was given to us through the Passover. This is how God shows his love to us. 2000 years ago, God came in the flesh and died a painful crucifixion on the cross in order for us to be able to receive the Passover. Without the shedding of his blood, there would be no promise(covenant), there would be no redemption, and no forgiveness of sins.

God's great love for us is shown through his sacrifice. Will this love vary depending on God's mood, will it whither with time or fade away? No, God's love is far greater than the love we have ever experienced, God's love is an eternal Love. This eternal Love is promised to us, the one's that God loves, through the Passover.
In the book of John, there is an even clearer understanding of how great God's love is, given to us through the Passover..

"It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love." (John 13:1)
- It wasn't until the night of the Passover that Christ showed the full extent of his Love. His sole purpose of coming to this earth, was to give us redemption through his blood, the eternal covenant, so that our souls may receive Life. Without the Passover, our souls have no life.

"Jesus said to them, I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you." (John 6:53)

If we go back to John, after Christ gave the Passover feast that evening, he gave an important command,
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." (John 13:34)

In both Matthew and Luke Jesus referred to the Passover feast as the New Covenant in his blood. However, in John, on that very same night, Jesus commanded us to Love one another as He has loved us.

Then how is it that God showed His love to us? Did he buy his disciples flowers and tell them how much he loved them? No, he gave them the Passover. He gave them the feast that has the Promise of God's Love, which is eternity for our souls. This is the Love that God wants us to give to eachother. This is the Love that God promised would be given back to us in the last days, so then why don't Christians today keep the New Covenant Passover?

According to Bible prophecy, God's love has been hidden for a long time:
"He will speak against the Most Hight and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws" (Daniel 7:25)
- God's saints will be oppressed by the one that speaks against God. He will find a way to change God's set times and laws. The feast of the Passover has an appointed time and date, this is the promise of God. However, nowadays, many churches keep communion and eucharist, claiming that it is the body and blood of Christ, however, there is no promise in just bread and wine. The promise is in the word of God. Communion and Eucharist came from the words of men in AD 33, by Roman emperor Constantine and the Council of Nicea. God's promise is at an appointed time, according to God's word. (Lev 23:5)

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

Without this promise, our Souls have no life and no true love of God. That is why we search far and wide for true love...
But God said to fear not....

"So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many, and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin but to bring Salvation to those who are waiting for him." (Hebrews 9:28)

Christ must appear a second time to bring us Salvation. Salvation in which we receive by keeping the Passover that Jesus Christ gave to us. This is the same Passover that the disciples passed on, in order to show their Love for one another the way that Christ showed his Love to them:

"For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jeuss, on the night he was betrayed, took bread.."This is my body which is for you, do this in remembrance of me"...In the same way after the supper he took the cup saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood." (1 Cor 11:23-25)

By receiving the true Love of God. We are able to show love towards one another by giving others the same gift God has given us. Without spreading the message that Christ has come again, how would anyone know what God's true love is? The Bible tells us that we are given Life through the Passover. Not just any life, Eternal Life.

Who is giving us Eternal Life in the last days?

"The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come", and let him who hears say, "Come". Whoever is thirsty let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of Life." (Revelation 22:17)

The very last prophecy of the Bible states that the Spirit and the Bride are giving the free gift of the water of Life. This water, gives us eternal life (John 4:14).

The Spirit, Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong and the Bride, Heavenly Mother New Jerusalem (Gal 4:26) have come to bring us their Love once again. "And so we know and rely on the love God has for us." (1 John 4:16)

The Love that God has for us is given through the feast of the Passover. This is the redemption that God gives the ones he loves in Isaiah 43. This is the Covenant that God promises in Isaiah 55. This is the Love that God has for us. God's Love is divine, God's Love is perfect, God's Love is eternal, and without the Spirit and the Bride, we would not know what God's love is. They have brought us the Passover, in order we may have Life in these Last days.
