      Learning to Love - Pt. 2

      2Pet. 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious
      promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,
      having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  

      Your ability to love can be based on one of two things. Either you will
      love from God, or love from your history. One of the main reasons Jesus
      came to die for us was to show the love that he had for us. He laid
      down his life because of his love and he taught us during his life how
      to love properly. But the enemy does the opposite and he comes in
      during your childhood to distort your perception of love and cause you
      to love improperly. I believe that God fathered Jesus, instead of a
      natural man doing it, because he wanted Jesus to have his blood. And
      when we are in Christ we become a “new creature” and we accept his
      blood as well. Bad blood carries disease and curses and impure blood
      can be passed on to your children. Jesus was spiritually pure because God was
      and when we are in him, we can be purified so that our bloodline can be
      changed! We must have our blood purified by Christ’s blood because
      generational curses, hurts, pains, and circumstances we grew up in will
      many times cause us to love based on our history instead of our heart.

      For example, a small child or teen that was verbally abused by a parent or
      physically abused by a loved one will grow up under the impression that
      love is physically painful. So they will abuse or be abused by others for the
      rest of their lives if they do not accept God’s love. A child or teen
      that is sexually molested by a loved one will mistake sex for love and
      usually become promiscuous when they are older because that’s how they
      see love. A young child that is never held or physically comforted by
      their mother or father will grow up struggling to display affection and will
      times struggle to be affectionate with their loved ones. The way you
      were raised is how you will view love. And the enemy will use your past
      to mess with your ability to love in the future. But then came Jesus!
      The greatest spiritual feat ever performed was when Jesus died on the
      cross to take away our sinfulness! Not just our sins, but the effects
      of our sins and its history! God changed our blood line by giving us his
      blood! So, the generation curses, the family injustices, the abuse, the
      neglect, the witchcraft, the slavery, the incest, the diseases, the
      physical ailments, etc. can be broken from us and we don’t have to
      succumb to anything because we are blood related. Jesus’ blood can now
      run through our veins and all his attributes can now rule over us. We
      can love like he did now and we don’t have to be bound to our history
      or led by our warped perception of love, but we can now love like God
      loves. Don’t just accept salvation from Jesus, but also accept his
      blood! When you accept his blood, you break the curse that follows the
      blood of your ancestors and their sins will no longer govern your
      behavior! No matter how you were loved in the past, you can accept the
      love of Jesus and it will teach you how to love right!

      Suggested Reading: 2Cor. 5:17, Eph. 2:3, 1John 1:7, 1Th. 4:9
